Revolution Is Not An Option

REVERSED VALUES

 

Your pants are a dress and your lipstick is chapped lips that are au jus natural or sunbaked hurting.

You claim you are a woman and would like to get rid of your inconvenient member.

 

The country has reversed its values.  Your president says that “ISIS is not Islamic” and that terrorism is workplace violence. What a drag.  Queen.

 

He violates our intelligence. As the Wicked Witch of the East says, “What a world!”

 

If only Dorothy threw a bucket of water on Obama and he disappeared on the castle ramp into a melting of clichés and a subterfuge of political distortion.

 

Obama loves peace.  ISIS loves war.  Now who is going to win this fight?  Hitler or Gandhi?  Our leader’s psyche is all about surrender.  He celebrated Foley’s beheading with a game of golf. Later he hit a Mulligan—Sotloff’s head.

 

Obama doesn’t want to murder innocents.  So he lets the terrorists murder us.  Shucks, I don’t remember being guilty.

 

There are still imaginary legs running without bodies around Boston.  Our suffering has become Obama’s marathon.

 

Muslims stone, behead, kidnap, enslave, circumcise women, amputate, kill apostates and yet Bush, Obama and Kerry still call their religion peaceful.  I suppose after you are dead you are peaceful.

 

Many Muslims are evil.  Evil is evil.  They are defined by their actions.  Three thousand innocents dead at Ground Zero and liberals call the killers a fringe group.  I’d like to take a shawl with fringes and bury the wicked with their Koran.

 

Is Dr. Zuhi Jasser the only Muslim who is ashamed of brainless violence?  Is he the only Muslim who celebrates life rather than death?  He condemns his own people while Obama congratulates them on another head.

 

Arabs awaken.  Westerners are put to sleep like dogs by terrorist vets.  We are our own failure to fight evil because we are afraid of it.  It’s easier to say that everything’s going to be alright and that Muslims are really good people.

 

Our heads shine in our windows like pumpkins on Halloween.  Where is a leader who can fight like Joe Frazier rather than lead from behind and backpedal like Muhammed Ali?

 

If you don’t know if you are a man or a woman you can’t tell who is your enemy and who is your friend?

Wisdom is not evasion but constriction.  We must return to basics to get the blinders off our horse eyes?

 

Revolution is not an option.  It is a failure to appreciate the past.
