Colonel Michael Harley: Editorial 8-28-12

I want to share a paradoxical quote with you. It comes from my friend Ben Stein. Here’s what Ben had to say: “Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove he is insured. . . . but not everyone must prove that he is a citizen.” Now add this. . . . “Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance, paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.” It’s in the book!

That’s part of the Democrat platform for 2012! Does it seem to make any sense at all to you? Me either.

Of course, that’s the same bunch that stubbornly want to take our national motto (no not the one Obama mistakenly quoted in a speech) “IN GOD WE TRUST” off our currency.

Obie thinks our motto is “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” Like many people who were actually born here, he isn’t comfortable with any mention of the Creator, even on pennies! They all vote unwisely.

You see, the silly thing about this whole issue, is that Americans, thanks to the government run public schools, are almost totally ignorant of our history and traditions. Then they elected a President who favors the dumbed down side of things.

He probably does not know that the second verse of our National Anthem (the Star Spangled Banner it’s called- – for those who teach our kids) speaks of this “heaven rescued land” and praises “the power that made and preserved us a nation, and this be our motto, IN GOD IS OUR TRUST.” What are we going to do, erase the Star Spangled Banner too, just to please the current crop of idiots?

And for Obama and others who don’t give a fig for our history, those lines were written back in 1814, so they are not new. They have been tested by time and have served us well. You know who loved the Star Spangled Banner and what it stood for?

They called him Reverend. His name was King. . . Martin Luther King, and he was a Republican!
