As the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York draws closer, apparently once again the Mouth in Chief is trying to tell us all how to respond.
It really is no surprise that as usual the MIC works cynically at 'framing the response' to the 9/11 10th anniversary, and of course, no surprise that the msm airwaves are all atwitter with talking heads pontificating, as some of us reach for more bp meds in our fury at this latest blatant attempt by the MIC to remove the remembrance of that day from the lexicon and substitute the notion of 'service.'
SOME of us need no 'guidelines' on how to honour those we lost on 9/11. SOME of us do not need to look to a government site (Serve.Gov) 'to find ways to help within their own communities.
Some of us most certainly do NOT need a repeat of the MIC picture holding a paintbrush at a photo-op demonstrating his commitment to community service on 9/11.
For some of us - you know, those who lost loved ones on 9/11 - there is no 'positive moving forward' or, as one talking head was quoted as saying, 'getting over it.'
The msm may be doing their usual parroting of the BHO party line, but no family even remotely connected to the terrorist attack on American soil that day, needs YOUR guidance on what that day really means. YOU may call for a one day of service; these families live with the loss from that day every.single.day. The families of the First Responders that day, the service their loved ones gave, is a sacrifice they live with forever. Calling any 9/11 a call to one day of service makes a mockery of the enormity of the many who served their fellow countrymen and women that day.
FACT: I don't care what flowery, insincere words you, as Mouth in Chief, use in your attempts to change the sacred, solemn meaning of 9/11. MANY of us see right through it for what it is. And heartfelt it ain't.
The only way to recognise our 9/11 fallen is to REMEMBER and honour what they gave that day. You, Mr President, have proved woefully inadequate for the task of leading any of us in that profoundly sacred duty.
There is a saying that goes something like: Lead, follow, or get out of the way.
Mr Obama: GET OUT OF THE WAY and shut *** **** up!
