Chattanooga Shooter

Posted by Troy on 18th July 2015 in Current Events

I lost a bet.  Before I read Obama’s comments on the shooter, I made a bet that he would say one of three things:

1)  Let’s not jump to conclusions…

2)  This is someone that has perverted Islam, and this event should not be associated with Islam, which is a religion of peace, or

3)  This wouldn’t have happened if guns were not so readily accessible.

Instead, he said that we don’t know what motivated him.

What motivated him?  Dude!  The guy’s name is “Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez.”  He may or may not be associated with some group or another, but at the end of the day, he was inspired by the Koran or the Quran or however you wanna spell it.

Is that where we are, now?  We are unable to say the obvious?  A cop shoots a black guy, and all cops are racist pigs.  If an illegal alien kills an American citizen, we must not speak of it or we are racist.  If a Muslim kills four people, we have to pretend as though his religion has NOTHING to do with it.

Yes, I know that Christianity had its dark days.  However, there is something different here.  There is literally no way you can take Jesus’s message and justify what the church did in his name.  Have you ever read the Koran?  Mohammad says you must kill people ALL the time!  Not just a couple of random passages.  At least 10% of the book is about killing others (mostly Jews).  And I feel I am being very generous there.

Most Muslims are like most Christians.  They want to go to work, feed their families, and have a happy life.  However, if you read the Koran and wanted to live your life according to its teachings, you are not betraying its teachings when you kill.  The same cannot be said of the Christian Bible.  That is the difference.

It may be politically incorrect, but that’s just the way it is.

Long Live the Constitution!

Marine Gary Stein dismissed over Obama Comments

Posted by Troy on 26th April 2012 in Current Events

Needless to say, this falls under stupid things to say.  However, his comments are 100% correct.  The enlistment oath is as follows:

“I, XXXXXXXXXX, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of the Military Justice.  So Help me God.”

Any order that the President gives which goes against the Constitution would be void under this oath.  I should imagine that Gary Stein is concerned about the declaration of martial law.  Also, every serviceman has the right to deny an order if he believes it is an illegal order.  If an officer tells the soldier to shoot unarmed women and children, the serviceman has the right not to comply with that order.  He may be court marshaled for it, and the court would decide if the serviceman was justified in that decision.

Ergo, when Gary Stein says he will not obey all orders, he has a very defensible position.  That being said, don’t insult your boss on Facebook.  It’s not a wise move.

Long Live the Constitution!
