I've received this month's notice that my donated pounds of coffee to the troops has been sent out. It always makes me smile. The very least the troops deserve is a decent cup of coffee.
Our troops are fighting for our freedom here at home. Let those who bury their heads and cover their eyes and ears continue to ignore the threats of Islamofacism. Let those who want to appease and run hold that thought. Ignoring and appeasing brought 9/11 and the defeatists hope you are tired enough of being at war to sweep in their candidates in November 2008. They offer no solutions from there but just vote for them, okay?
I saw video of an 'art' exhibit now at the main New York Public Library. This exhibit shows photos of members of the Bush administration, including the President and VP, as though they are mug shots. Isn't that clever? The NY Public Library - Public being the operative word here - is run with tax dollars. It is on city property. The employees work for the city of New York. Yet, in order to push a political agenda, denied by the Library of course, this exhibit is allowed on the walls for all to see. School children on field trips, foreign visitors, hey, maybe family and friends of those on the wall.
The artists, the term used loosely here, involved? They are Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese. The exhibit is called "Multiple Interpretations: Contemporary Prints in Portfolio at the New York Public Library." Interesting. Here's my interpretation for the gals: It's complete crap. It's not art. They are called political cartoons by the 'artists'. Usually political cartoons are actual cartoons, not fake photos.
No 'cartoons' of anyone on the other side of the political aisle? I'm shocked.
Tammy Bruce, a liberal Dem who gets it - she puts country before political party like a grown up - said, "Who put al-Qaeda in charge of the N.Y. Public Library system, but then, of course, remembered the American left is doing their bidding for them."
Some are amused at the exhibit. Others, not so much. "It's a library," 54 year old Jim Strifler of Long Island, N.Y. told the Daily News. "Maybe this would be okay for a museum, but this is supposed to be public ground."
And from Ms. Bruce: "Not only is that unacceptable in a publicly funded entity, but as pro-choicers argued when pro-life extremists did the same thing featuring doctors who performed abortions, the same doctors would get murdered. So here is the enlightened, "progressive" left doing exactly what they decried no so many years ago as dangerous and the promotion of violence. I noted that not only should the display be taken down, but those who approved it should be fired."
It won't happen, the person approving the exhibit is no doubt receiving all kinds of high fives at work for such cleverness, such daring exhibits, and will probably receive a raise.
But, don't you question their patriotism.
Don't worry. The troops fight for them, too. That's the American way.
