Clark County, We Have a Problem

by lewwaters

Yes, we all have witnessed the dysfunction ongoing with the five member County Council and finger pointing is going in all directions. But it seems the problem extends beyond just the friction between the five councilors.

It’s bad enough that the councilors can’t seem to agree on much, but week after week we see the same citizens coming forward repeating their vitriol towards one group or another.

The Confederacy and Vietnam Veterans

“American by Birth, Southern by the Grace of God”

Black Confederate Soldiers 8I have no idea of the origin of the above saying, it has been around for a very long time and likely adapted from some other saying. But, it pretty much sums up the deep feelings of many Americans born and raised in the Southern States of America.

It also is a target of much ridicule from many Americans born and raised in the Northern States who simply do not understand the attitudes and feelings of those many Southerners with their attachment to their birthplace.

Nowhere can this be better seen than in the last few days as following the murder of nine innocent people at a Church in Charleston South Carolina and the focus being placed on a small flag representing the Confederacy in many people’s minds.

Outrage Over Abortion Doc Murder, Ho Hum Over Soldiers Murder

by lewwaters

By now all know of the heinous murder of abortion doctor, George Tiller in Wichita, Kansas by a nutcase. Pro and anti-abortion people have expressed righteous anger.

Attorney General Eric Holder was quick to dispatch the U.S. Marshals Service to protect “appropriate people and facilities around the nation.”

It should be noted this is the first murder of an abortion doctor in 11 years. That neither condones nor justifies the act, just some perspective.

Those opposing abortion face a backlash of unknown proportions as pro-abortion forces now line up to take advantage of this heinous crime, which was immediately condemned by all legitimate anti-abortion protesters.

Another murder happened just today, June 1, 2009 and the disparity of outrage or national headlines screams loudly.

A United States Army Soldier was gunned down and murdered outside an Army Recruitment Office in Little Rock, Arkansas and a second wounded.

Where is the quick condemnation from the anti-war left? Where is Obama’s rapid condemnation of this heinous murder? Where is the Attorney General’s mobilization of US Marshal’s to protect Recruitment Facilities?

Recruiting Offices are not armed and not fortified as many abortion clinics are.

Is the silence because the alleged murderer this time is a recently converted Muslim?

Or, is the life of United States Soldier unimportant to the Obama agenda?
