We Were Invincible

Meir once said (paraphrase) “…the fighting will stop when they love their
children more than they hate us.” I’ve
said multiple times that the #1
killers of Palestinian children—or any child whose parents follow
Islam—are Palestinian adults. The
left’s mantra of “Won’t someone Puhleez think of the children?” rings
hollow and impotent given their appalling inaction on behalf of the children who
truly need it—children of Islam. Their
suffering is inexcusably ignored by these self-styled paragons of the
defenseless. These little ones are
on their own, left to their own devices, and in the hands of Islamic adults,
those “devices” are most likely Improvised and Explosive.
And all because the left in this land and others are too gutless to admit
to their own horrifically failed policies. Pathetic.

congratulations; you’re not a loserly hippy.
You’re what we used to call a cowboy—an American Cowboy.

were John Wayne and Gary Cooper, Randolph Scott and Audie Murphy, rife
with guts from Normandy to Hiroshima, and never once thinking it necessary to
apologize for defending freedom—both our own and that of strangers.
Wicked men trembled at the thought of our Marines on their shores, and
the righteous oppressed whom we have repeatedly saved stood in awe of our
decency, generosity, and ability to forgive and rebuild alongside an enemy that
our efforts—and ours alone—transformed into a friend.
There has never been such a nation in history; we overthrow evil but
don’t overtake their country; we destroy the cancerous tumor dining on the
flesh of the free without destroying the rights of the people to their God-given
free will. We have been magnificent
as cowboys, better than most and stronger than all, the keepers of the flame and
the defenders of freedom on behalf of those too weak to fight for themselves.
This has been the legacy of
make no mistake; losing is a distinct possibility this time.
Our enemies were wrong in the past to underestimate our resolve, and they
paid dearly. But in the past 40
years they have gained a powerful ally who has both helped promote their
propaganda, which has strengthened them externally, while cutting the balls off
Americans and pounding us with the “guilt” stick in order to weaken us
internally. This is how they lost us
the war in Vietnam,
even after we won every single battle. The
Hippy Press realized that if they could make something look like the truth, make
it look like the majority of the people believe the same leftist way they do,
they could manipulate reality until it became their Marxist utopia, with the
same veracity as Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Kim Il Sung, Mao Zedong, Mussolini,
and Hiro Hito. They take their cues
not from the best men in history, but from the wretched and wicked, and then try
to one-up them.

Apparently it means nothing to us, either.

why. When you belong to a third
world country, seething with jealousy, rage, hatred, and poverty, you must aim
your wrath somewhere. You can’t
aim it at your own group, because that takes guts.
Like spoiled little children, Islam aims at America and Israel while
letting their own Muslim brethren—who have been far more responsible for their
suffering than any other group on earth—off the hook.
This is not the behavior of adults…these are nasty little children in
dire need of an old-fashioned beating. Like
teenage antagonists, Islam conducts marching drills stomping on the Israeli flag
painted beneath their feet. To these
spoiled, impotent fools, that is a horrific insult.
Do you know of any other group of people on earth who does such things?
No, you don’t. We don’t
worst thing to give a spoiled child is what he wants, which is attention.
That only encourages him. Instead
of ignoring Islam’s smelly brown ass and bitch-slapping them when they step
out of line, we give them money, weapons, and land, none of which does a damned
thing to quell their hatred or ensure their promise “this time.”
We’ve let them off the hook for every murder, every bombing, every
rocket, every broken promise, every UN violation, and every innocent baby used
as a human shield, something we would never do for
are the grim realities we now face in this all-out war between good and evil.
Just as WWII and the Cold War boiled down to those who believed in
freedom and life versus those who loved death and oppression, this war is all
about those of us who claim to believe
in free will versus those of them who believe in “Do as I say or else.”
It’s the War in Heaven all over again, divided between those who follow
Lucifer and those who follow the begotten Son of God.
love life and all it has to offer; Bin Laden said it best when he told his
followers that Islam loves death. Two
polar opposites. Only one side can
be the right choice, and when we were Cowboys, we knew which side, and chose it.
We declared it boldly, without reservation or fear.
We felt justified by a God who loved our freedoms and lives so much that
He was willing to sacrifice greatly on our behalf.
We followed that same path, and in doing so squelched evil and removed it
from the earth. We succeeded in
stopping evil; not slowing it down, but wiping it out.
There was no doubt: God was
on our side, because we were on His.
after 40 years of wretched Political Castration, we have been bludgeoned into
submission and have allowed the fear of being called a word—racist—to rule
our senses rather than our common sense or sense of decency.
And we have done so in spite of the fact that it makes no sense
whatsoever. One giant, jolly,
childish game of “Let’s pretend” with very real, adult, and permanent
world is celebrating the death of the horrific dictator Saddam Hussein.
It is a great reason to take joy in a time of war; one of the Middle
Eastern Hitler wanna-bees is in Hell where he belongs.
But it is diluted by the knowledge that there are still so very many left
to go: Bin Laden, Hamas, Hizbollah,
Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il, not to mention

freedom of religion could never work with the “Eastern” religions of Buddhism
or Mohammedism. He felt that the
reasons were so self-explanatory that there was no need to put such a
stipulation in the constitution. He
assumed that any group whose foundation forbids the right to worship as you see
fit would be rejected from entry to the only land on earth established for that

we take the cowboy out of storage, dust him off, saddle him up, arm him to the
teeth, and set him loose against the “Islamdians?”
Can we take a little pride in what we claim to believe is right, and
defend it as if we actually hold it sacred?
still not too late to cowboy up. It’s
not too late to hit them. We are the
only nation on earth capable of making a cowboy; if we don’t do it, we’ve
earned our fate. Can’t we be

beat evil again? Yippee-ki-yi-yea,
