Jerk of the Week

Along with the hero of the week, this week I have to include an entry on Jerk of the Week.
Jerk #1 is NBC News! It is utterly despicable that they would run the video of the crazy lunatic killer at Virginia Tech! First of all, it was only 2 days after the attack. If they had to run it, why so soon? Why not let the nation, and especially the families of the victims, to mourn for a while first? Second, they are giving the guy just what he wanted, fame. They are playing right into his hands. They are also paving the way for those other sickos out there that think they might want to do the same thing. They send the message that if you do this kind of thing, you will get fame and glory.
Their whole reason for airing this, over and over again I might add, is pure and simple ratings. They may claim that this was a hard decision, but I don’t buy it! They aired it only a couple hours after receiving it. That is hardly time to make such a “difficult decision!”
I can’t believe that they could be so amazingly callus! Well, actually I can. This is what the left-wing media does. They exploit for their own gain. It is just sick what they have done!

Applauds to the families of the victims that were going to be on the Today Show this morning, but backed out after NBC aired this! I wouldn’t go on any NBC show after such a blatant disregard for the feeling of those affected.
Applauds also to those stations that did not air this garbage! I think all the television networks aired it, but many radio shows did not. Applauds to Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, who refused to air any of the audio.

Jerk #2 is the crazy liberals who are against the Supreme Court decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortions. I don’t understand how anyone, regardless of their stance on abortion, could be in favor of this. Partial birth abortion is probably the most heinous things I’ve ever heard of! It is absolutely sick, and anyone who would oppose a ban on it is also sick. I would go so far as to say that if they are against this ban, then they are in favor of murdering children. That’s what this is. If you are unfamiliar with the procedure, look it up. It is disgusting!

Hero of the Week

This week, my hero of the week is one of the victims of Monday’s tragedy at Virginia Tech University. Professor Liviu Librescu was 76 years old. He had been at Virgina Tech since 1985. On Monday morning, he held the door to his classroom shut, with his body, allowing the students in the room to jump out the window to safety. After the last student was out, he was over powered by the killer, and shot to death. His tremendous act of heroism saved the lives of many students. From what I’ve read about him, he lived an honorable life, and in my opinion, he died an honorable death.
This man gave everything for his fellow man. That is to be honored!

Such a horrible tragedy

I just wanted to express my feelings about the terrible shootings at Virginia Tech today. When I heard what had happened, my heart absolutely broke. I can’t imagine someone being so troubled that they feel they have to kill other people. I can’t imagine being one of the students whose last moments on this earth were spent lined up and shot. I can’t imagine being any of the other students at the University. I can’t imagine being the families of those students. It is so tremendously sad what has happened. Over 30 innocent lives taken, for what? It is absolutely awful. I’m so sorry for those affected by this tragedy! I hope they will be able to find the peace and comfort they need at this time.

Alright, here we go. It was only a matter of time before I had to talk about Iraq. The only reason it’s waited this long is because I’ve really been “biting my tounge” so to speak.
On Wednesday, the President delivered his State of the Union Address, in which he outlined a new strategy for Iraq. The main focus of this strategy is the deployment of 20,000 additional troops. I think this is the only way we can win over there. I actually think we need to send about 100,000 over there and just squash this insurgency (get er done!). However, that won’t happen. It should, but it won’t. I think the President has a good plan, that can work. However, it isn’t going to be a quick or easy thing. In my opinion, it will probably get much worse at first. Just like a child, the insurgents in Iraq will want to test their limits; see how far they can really go. For a while, it is going to be bad, probably really bad. But, it will get better. It’s going to take time, though; a long time. I believe that this is a conflict that will take 5 to 10 years to sort out, maybe more. But, it will be worth it. Make no mistake that if we withdraw, as the Democrats want, that nation and area would be overrun by Iran in short order. The violence we are seeing now would pale in comparison. It would be the most costly mistake we could make. We have to crush this insurgency. We have to protect Iraq’s borders. In time, that will take less and less of our troops. We have a vested interest in the outcome of this war, not only politically, but in respect to our country’s safety and authority. If we were to pull out now, the message would be sent that if you light a big enough fire under our butts, we will run away and cower. Is this the kind of message we want to send to Iran and Syria? And, make no mistake about it, we are already engaged in a war with these countries – being fought in Iraq. Most of the insurgency is sponsored by Iran. Many of the insurgents are citizens of Iran. Just today several militants from Iran were arrested. We must win this war, or we will lose much more than Iraq. We cannot led terrorists and terrorist nations, ie Iran and Syria, gain any more momentum or power than they already have. These countries are indeed terrorist nations. They are the main supporters and sponsors of radical terrorist groups like Hezbollah. They are fascists, like the Nazis were. They believe their ideology is the only thing that should be on the face of this planet, and that any who oppose them should be wiped off the face of the earth. This is something we cannot ignore or escape. If we lose in Iraq, Iran will take it over. It will become another safe-haven for terrorists. We simply cannot afford not to win in Iraq!
I hope and pray that the Democrats here will open their eyes and see this. They must stop fighting everything President Bush does, and realize that they need to do not only what is best for the Iraqi people, but what is best for our people!
