I am nearly speechless!


But luckily, my fingers are unaffected.  Thank goodness for blogs.  I request you watch the linked video.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t he just say, “Where are you going to get that money? Are you going to tell us lies like you’re telling us today? Is that how you’re going to fund the war? You don’t have money to fund the war or children. But you’re going to spend it to blow up innocent people if we can get enough kids to grow old enough for you to send to Iraq to get their heads blown off for the president’s amusement.”?

This will be amongst the first blogs leaping to protect Free Speech, as guaranteed by our Constitution, but can you believe this?  Granted, this idiot is from California, but can you believe what he just said?  Aside from calling the occupation of Iraq illegal (I will not call it a war.  That part is over.  This is the occupation.  Not sure how?  Ask me and it’ll be the next post) despite the fact that Congress approved military action against Iraq, he is accusing the President of the United States of intentionally killing innocents, which I believe is still called murder, and laughing at the deaths of our men and women in uniform.

While not a Hemingway or Frost, I am fairly capable of expressing myself in writing, no thanks to any public education I received, but I am unable to convey with enough weight how mad this makes me.  Livid.  Irate.  I’m fuming.

I am hardly a fan-boy of President Bush, as I think his administration, for its strengths, has done a great deal to limit our Constitutional Freedoms in the name of “security”, but this is just too much.  I am writing the following letter to my Congressman, Rep. Jason Altmire:

Dear Congressman Altmire,

I was angered and shocked when I heard the statements made by your peer, Representative Stark, of California, during the discussion on whether or not to override President Bush’s veto of the the SCHIP expansion.

I saw from the Congressional Record that you spoke in favor of SCHIP, and like Mr. Stark, must also be disappointed with the President’s decision to veto.

That being said, Mr. Altmire, we all have disappointments at work.  The way that Mr. Stark chose to express his disappointment in the President’s actions is not, in my opinion, how I would like an elected Representative in the United States Congress to conduct him or herself.  He actually implied that the President of the United States laughed at soldiers getting killed while serving their country!

I understand that Congressman Stark was using his First Amendment Freedoms of protected political speech, and as a veteran, I have fought for those rights for others.  As such, I will not ask for something like a public censure or resolution condemning Mr. Stark.  I, personally, believe that Congress has better things to be doing than inhibiting the speech of others.

I would ask, however, that when you next meet Mr. Stark you let him know that at least some of your constituents still find accusing the President of the United States of such outrages is inappropriate in the extreme and behavior not befitting a Congressman of the United States House of Representatives--he is an embarrassment to your party.

I cannot emphasize sufficiently how upset his comments have made me.  I am glad that you are representing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania better than Mr. Stark is representing California.  Thank you, sir, for your time and consideration in this matter.

I urge you to talk to your Congressmen too!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
