I Don’t Get It!

¡Yo no intiendo amigo!

In this crazy world how is it so bad to want to defend yourself? Forget this Kumbaya bull-crap thinking if we reduce our nuclear devices so will the rest of the world. I grant you it’s a nice thought but if you’ve paid even a little bit of attention lately (N Korea, Iran, Al Qaeda, Al qaeda on the Arabian peninsula -yes they are different, and Islamic radicals) you have to wonder, what’s he thinking?

I’m thinking it’s not SMART thinking. The Start Treaty passed today in the US Senate on a 68-27 vote (60 Senate votes were needed). It goes for a final vote possibly as early as Wednesday and it’s BAD. Bad as in terrible, not bad as in bitchin’, cool or sick in the parlance of the hip. According to DickMorris.com (former adviser to Pres. Clinton) it gives a 10,000 to 200 advantage to Russia and prohibits the US from developing interceptor missiles as part of a shield against incoming warheads — whether Russian or Iranian or North Korean.

The other thing I don’t understand is the rush to vote on this MAJOR treaty in the lame duck session. Why not have committee hearings and give it the light of day? Historically, the Ruskies have not exactly been known to adhere to treaties anyway. But why even go there? Russian tactical weapons (the kind most susceptible to theft or diversion to terrorists or rogue regimes like North Korea, Iran, Al qaeda) would outnumber ours 10-to-1.

Remember, “We the People” were successful in defeating the horrible Omnibus Spending bill last week by bringing pressure on key members of Congress and we can do it.

It’s time to burn those phone lines! Call the following Congressional offices to influence the 10 swing votes needed to defeat this horrible Start Treaty with Russia:
