"Man has no greater enemy than himself." Petrarch (Francesco Petrarca)
A terrorist faction ("radical" implied and unnecessarily redundant) of Islam is waging declared war upon the United States of America.
That war is being ruthlessly waged around the globe to include on our soil - home and abroad. Massive destruction and murder of noncombatants is their interim objective. They are succeeding. Our total destruction is their mission.
Yesterday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said it is President Obama's belief that common sense gun laws will stop the terrorists. This nonsense coming after the president's enveloping "attack" on our enemy by targeting climate change in Paris, France (a week or so following the terrorist attack that included murder of an American).
A simple man, I must keep it simple: Today we (America) are the big fat lethargic frog sitting in a pot of room temperature water set atop stove burner at low heat, and are too stupid to notice or admit (to jump out) we're reaching the boiling point of demise.
Logic leads to concluding there are but three possibilities for explaining our president's (non)performance of duty and failing in his primary responsibility for ensuring the safety and security of our country and us: 1) ineptness; 2) insanity; 3) intentional.
Answer matters not for posing the common sense question...
If the President of the United States is not willing to name the enemy, an enemy that has declared war on our country and is carrying out deadly mass murder attacks on our soil, and order their absolute destruction (as soon as possible), why should not that president be declared our enemy?
Remember, the first step to defeating any enemy is naming them.
As President George W. Bush declared on his watch, 'You are either with us or against us.' Indeed. Our enemy's friend is our enemy.
Shall we leap from the pot?!
