I spent some time thinking about the Chris Hayes crap at MSNBC and yet another apology from a radical liberal progressive and came to the conclusion in my opinon that there are many Heroes and Cowards among us. First lets cover some coward related stuff.
Having a hit list on your desk and then saying via your press secretary that stopping women and children from being shot in the head in mass is not our business or as it was stated "now is not the time". That's Barrack Obama and it's what a coward does, sits behind a desk and orders executions then refuses to stop genocide.
A person that says "it's not our problem" when women and children are killed in mass. The same as people living in the villiages of Dachau Germany said about the stench of geneocide. That's what Gary Stein, the USMC member booted under other then honorable conditions said on his tea party facebook page today.
A TV talking head that says he can't use the word "hero" to describe our fallen military. Thats Chris Hayes and the MSNBC crowd that yet again apologized after God aweful comments.
Heroes, well that's the 6400 members of the military we have lost in the last 11 years. The great young Americans that serve with honor, don't attack the chain of command for attention, and in many cases were young kids playing little league on a play ground just 8 or 10 years ago.
Heroes are the ones we honored this weekend, the ones that we lose almost 1500 of a day from WWII, the ones that stand up and say I'll follow the orders of those appointed over me like generations and generations before and whose white headstones line green fields in places like France, luxembourg, and Arlington to preserve liberty. Thank God for the Heroes!
Like all tea parties we have a core mission that is centered on limited government, fiscal responsibility, personal accountability and freedoms. We are not a one person organization that is here to push a singular agenda about following orders of the chain of command. We are not here to encourage active duty members to start questioning what orders and what commander and chief they will support.
Red herring issues about lawful vs. unlaw orders is a distraction to our mission. Given the rock solid leadership we have in the all volunteer force the notion that our military members would be put in position to follow unlaw orders is silly and the WWII Germany comparisons are not valid! I retired after 22 years in the military as a first sergeant and never once was following an unlawful order an issue!
The facebook page mess is pulling us off course and fast becoming a one man story about a mouse fart issue and it's time to get back to core tea party principles not drawing negative attention to the tea party and away from the hard work we have ahead of us.
This website and our armed forces tea party is not and will not be party to the gary stein mess about military orders he does or does not want to follow or his take on what is or is not a lawful order. It's time to get back to policy and issue related items that effect all Americans not one persons preference about a mico issue.
His fight or issue with orders is like the tea party movement deciding to pick a fight over red light cameras, or jay walking. It's a waste of time when we have $14 trillion in debt, and the health care mess. Time to set up and think about everyone in all tea parties and the larger issues we all face in a critical election year.
