Fight Them On Whose Streets, Weldon?


by pessimist

Ten-term Republican Rep. Curt Weldon, a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, running his toughest re-election campaign yet, repeated the tired and discredited mantra of the Republican Party, which is clinging desperately to their electoral advantage with the voters: "We either fight them there," Mr. Weldon recently said of terrorists, "or we fight them in the supermarkets and streets here."

I have news for that stupid Republican asshole:

WE ALREADY ARE FIGHTING TERRORISM IN THE SUPERMARKETS AND STREETS HERE.

That's why people see the GOP Advantage On Security Evaporating.

In Hawaii, a 14-year-old Honolulu student took a Mac-11 submachinegun to school, intending to use it on other students who were harassing his girlfriend.

A Pennsylvania college student thinks that dynamite makes a great souvenir.

Worse yet, a Pennsylvania lawmaker had his son kidnapped and other relatives shot in his own home.

And, all across the nation, trusted members of our society are getting away with crimes against our young through the application of the filthy lucre.

So who cares that Osama is safely hidden in Riyadh, or that Afghan farmers are getting rich flooding the American streets with their produce:

"You pay for everything. Mistakes, everything. It is the cost of doing business," Stuart Bowen, a former White House lawyer.

Such as the mistake of allowing Bu$hCo to assume power in 2001.
