Remembering Dec 7th

It will take a lot of effort to reverse the damage done to the United States by Barack Hussein Obama. He  borrowed (and blew) more money in his terms in office than all American presidents did - combined. Our economy is tepid, and we have seen what socialism can do, first hand. He tasked NASA to make Muslims feel good about themselves and charged the US Military with defeating the weather. Under any other circumstances, he would have been run out of town on a rail. But people wanted to give him a chance because of his mixed race.

In the face of threats both foreign and domestic, Obama's solution has been to work diligently to disarm the American people and systemically make our military less prepared. Where Ronald Reagan had two carrier battle groups assigned to the Sixth Fleet Area of Operations (Mediterranean), Obama disbanded that fleet. That very policy helped lead to the Benghazi Massacre (even though other help was available at the time).

However Barack Hussein Obama does not define who we are as a people or what we have the capacity to do. We simply need to "reverse the curse".

America under Roosevelt left Pearl Harbor vulnerable to attack and we were attacked. History repeats and it's useful to recall that on December 7. The concept of Never Again was floated on September 11, 2001, but we've forgotten that. The Obama Administration's policy of "environmental awareness" has kept us from dismantling ISIL because we didn't want to damage oil trucks or oil wells. At the same time, that nation-state declared war on the USA. Obama blames terrorism on America, not on radical Islamic murderers. Go figure - and riddle me that one.

Our future is in our hands. It's up to us to decide how to deal with things such as energy independence, Islamic terrorism, Iranian nuclear weapons, Chinese expansion and Russian adventurism. We can wait for another "Day of Infamy", or we can exercise some common sense.
