The Thoughts of an Officer and a Gentleman.
As one who has didn’t spend 22 years as a career officer in the U.S. Army or been elected by his constituents to represent them in the U. S. House of Representatives – I can only wonder what goes through Congressman Allen West’s mind when he is confronted with the likes of Lois Frankel, Patrick Murphy, the editorial staff of the SunSentinel, political writer Anthony Man and political cartoonist Chan Lowe - and some of the lunkheads who avail themselves of the Letters-to-the-editor venue as an outlet for their venom? What must he think?
The comments and cartoons that spew forth from the bunch of left-threaded bolt-heads who populate this newsrag are pretty much to be expected. The SunSentinel, the painfully-thin newspaper of record in our real-news-deprived area, is of course just one withering arm of that multi-tentacled monster of Liberalism, the Tribune papers. This group of newsrags proudly carries forth the banner first raised by those pioneering giants of ‘yellow journalism’, Col. McCormick and William Randolph Hearst. Scandal sells; the more the merrier.
Retired LTC. Allen West must think back to his days of strict upbringing by his family and faith; his days in the ROTC as a young patriot; his early years in training as a career Army officer and his years of leading his troops into battle in the Middle East, against this nation’s enemies - and he must ponder how it is that the people back home whom he laid his life on the line to protect, can be so stupidly insensitive to the presence of the bad guys among us and the multitude of problems facing us today, that threaten our freedom and yes, even our very survival as a nation?
When such as the aforementioned stupidly-insensitive-group-think followers of Obama the Pied-Piper of false words and anti-free-enterprise policies swallow such Kool-Aid, it boggles the mind to imagine how our dear country might be saved from such as this ilk?
What Congressman Allen West is thinking in terms of our problems as he is privy to them by virtue of his time spent in the Halls of Congress when it is in session and by his time spent among his constituents between Congressional sessions, is vital information that as responsible citizens, we need to know. He shares this information and his practical and workable solutions at each of the two Town Hall Meetings he conducts in District 22 each month, with a clarity that makes one wonder why other representatives from this area aren’t doing the same? Or, did I just answer my own question? Can anyone reasonably expect this kind of representation from a Lois Frankel? Does anyone really expect to hear such cogent analysis and principled solutions from a Debbie Wasserman Schultz, an Alcee Hastings, a Ted Deutch or any of the other faux representatives of the people in this region? I don’t think so.
