It’s War, Not A Crime Spree
This weekend on Facebook, Sarah Palin called out President Obama’s failed approach to national security. “Obama’s meeting with his top national security advisers does nothing to change the fact that his fundamental approach to terrorism is fatally flawed. We are at war with radical Islamic extremists and treating this threat as a law enforcement issue is dangerous for our nation’s security,” Palin wrote. We should be interrogating terrorism suspects, not mirandizing them Sean argued. “Do you realize the danger just by not interrogating this guy? He’s now lawyered up and we won’t get a word of this guy,” Sean fumed. “I think the sheer lack of logic of the administration’s arguments when it comes treating terrorists like the underwear bomber as an American citizen rather than an enemy combatant…just makes no sense.”
Good News For Junkies
There’s good news today for junkies in the New York metro area. In New York City, in the midst of one of the worst budget crisis’ in 35 years, mayor Michael Bloomberg spent tax-payer money to manufacturer and distribute manuals instructing heroin addicts how to properly “shoot up.” No, it’s not April Fool’s day, we’re actually serious about this! The New York City-funded guidebook for heroin users offers information on how to prepare drugs carefully and how to care for veins to avoid infection. “Here’s your tax dollars at work in New York!” Sean steamed. Tips from the handy pamphlet encourage drug abusers to “know your tolerance level” and suggest using heroine “with someone else” so they aren't alone if "something goes wrong." Incredible! Surely the hard working men and women of New York won’t mind contributing their tax dollars to pay for such an educational guide. If it seems too hard to believe, read the pamphlet for yourself right here.
Brown vs. Coakley
Democrat Martha M. Coakley and Republican Scott Brown are engaged in a six-week race to the Jan. 19 special election that will determine the successor of the late Sen. Kennedy. Brown, down nearly 30 points in the polls as of last month, has now closed the gap to a near "dead heat." Joining Sean by telephone, Brown explained what he believes to be the main reason for his recent gain in popularity. “It’s the health care bill,” said Brown, “I think people are realizing what is good in Washington isn’t necessarily good in Massachusetts. People are angry with the backroom deals that have occurred in places like Nebraska and Louisiana. I’m an independent fiscal conservative and don’t owe anybody anything. That is the difference between Martha Coakley and me. She is part of the Democrat machine in Massachusetts. She's almost robotic and will rubber stamp anything Harry Reid or Obama tell her to. That’s the big difference between us.”
Scott Philip Brown (b. September 12, 1959) is a Republican Massachusetts State Senator representing the Norfolk, Bristol & Middlesex District since 2004. He is the Republican candidate to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by the death of Ted Kennedy in the upcoming 2010 U.S. Senate special election.
