It's Finally Happened

Charlie Daniels Soap Box
Fri Mar 27th, 2009
Charlie Daniels

Washington has totally lost its collective mind and is drowning in a sea of make believe that transcends common sense and even political correctness.

I'm going back to Iraq later on in the year, and I can't wait to see what the young men and women in the military think about fighting the "Overseas Contingency Operation."

They actually thought they were fighting the War on Terror, but their new Commander in Chief and the bunch of politically correct, pantywaist loonies who serve under him are afraid of offending Osama bin Laden or some other scum-sucking, head-decapitating terrorist murderers, so they changed horses in mid stream.

The War on Terror is now the Overseas Contingency Operation, terrorism is now referred to as "man caused disasters" and now the White House has decided that they would no longer call the Islamic fanatics -who want to destroy our way of life- "enemy combatants," but so far the Obama administration hasn't thought of anything less offensive. May I suggest "misguided well-meaning foreign citizens"? That sounds like something the White House can run with.

If it wasn't so dangerous it would be funny. Do these people actually think that by calling something by a kinder gentler name they can make it less dangerous? This is downright stupid. Yes, I said it. It's stupid.

It's like saying, "Mr. bin Laden, we're sorry for calling you all those terrible names. We're really sorry, and if we'll stop using those awful descriptions, will you just leave us alone? Can't we all just put some flowers in our hair and live in peace? Besides it was all that awful George W. Bush's idea."

Well Mr. Obama, I might have missed it but I haven't heard you mention 9/11 once, and just in case you've forgotten these noble enemy comba… sorry, "foreign mischief-making citizens", -or whatever you end up calling them- of yours murdered over 3000 of our citizens in three different locations on American soil and your milksop definitions of these pus ball killers is just not good enough for me.

I have some suggestions for your vocabulary:

Rattlesnake - triangle-headed surface crawler

Black Widow Spider - red dotted black circle

Shark - fish with a toothy smile

Grizzly Bear - big cuddly fuzzball

Dynamite - stringed red stick

Ted Bundy - homo sapien with a slight attitude

Jeffrey Dahmer - peculiarly-appetited loner

The media in this country have their heads so far up the collective posteriors of the Obama Administration that all they can do is sit back and say, "Oh isn't he wonderful? Isn't he brilliant? He has compassion and cares about everybody's feelings!"

Folks, please don't let this bunch of new age liberal fanatics pull the wool over your eyes.

Regardless of what the White House says, we are still fighting the War on Terror. If you don't believe it, ask some of the young heroes who patrol the roads of Iraq everyday at the risk of having their Humvees blown to kingdom come by a roadside bomb, not put there by a soldier but by a citizen terrorist and that does not compute into enemy combatant, "peace-depriving individual" or any other ridiculous politically correct term they can come up with, no matter how you cut it.

The more Obama tries to placate these people, the weaker they will perceive us to be and you know what's sad? It will be the truth.

I remember watching a TV show a few years ago when there was a war going on between Israel and their Arab neighbors. I remember the rapper, Vanilla Ice, walking to the microphone, raising his fist in the air and saying, "Peace in the Middle East!"

I think that's a wonderful idea, Mr. Ice. How about you go over there and fix it for us. I'm sure you and Sean Penn could make all of the problems in the Middle East just go away.

These idealistic platitudes may make the people who say it feel good about themselves, but it does absolutely nothing to solve the situation.

The only thing to be accomplished by soft-pedaling the rhetoric will be to give our blood enemies a good laugh.

I can't help but wonder how the coverage of the trade towers bombing would be reported today, would it be something like…?

"Today misguided well-meaning foreign citizens from the Overseas Contingency Operation inflicted a Man Caused Disaster at the World Trade Center depriving some three thousand people -who probably shouldn't have been there anyway- of their livingness, and besides, we're sure they had a good excuse for doing it."

Film at eleven.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops

God Bless America

I am fortunate to live in the same town as Mr. Daniels.

Of course, his feelings match that of approximately 95% of our "quaint" population.

He has it right.
Barry "O" has it wrong.
God save our military people, we below the Washington elite care and think of you.

He is the current President and someone obviously feels they need to change the name to reflect the current administrations goals. It was proposed under Bush, but it didnt happen. Just like closing Gitmo.

Well, Kaffirs, at least he had the common courtesy to refer to Iran as "THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN". He has now shown the proper respect.
As a sign of new found respect we shall now liquidate this Vanilla Ice you seem to disdain so much. Love, Mahmoud. Praise Allah (LSD).

What does everyone expect?
Our country is being ran by a bunch of touch feely Liberal Pussies!

I never thought I would live long enough to see the Socialist Pigs we have running this country and the
apathy of most Americans.

I wish Oklahoma would just secede along w/Texas from the Union.
I'd like to stop sending money to Washington for them to Squander and I really don't want any part of this debt
dear leader has gotten us into.

"I'm a faithful follower of Brother John Birch,
and I belong to the Antioch Baptist Church,
and I ain't even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife"


"Try to lay a hand on a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, and I think you may finally understand"

That beard and hat hide a lot of fundamental common sense.

They can re-name things all they want, but my former workplace was destroyed by Islamic homicidal maniacs. A non-suicidal group tried it in '93 with a rented van filled with I.E.D.s. There are people you will trust with your life, and then there are those who will run like a rabbit, and sadly they were elected!

A man made disaster is a bridge failing because of poor maintenance or design - not a jet being aimed at a building. wtf.

So wait a second. Isn't this Charlie Daniels the peacenik hippie country singer? If so, when did he turn Republican? And honestly, why does anyone give two shits what a country singer thinks? Now he's writing opinion columns on the web? The world has gone completely mad.

Hey, here's an idea that might work: Stop the idiotic foreign interventions and all the foreign aid altogether. Leave those stupid fuckers over there alone to do whatever the hell they want. Bring all the troops home (forget the "isolationist" rhetoric––we will still trade with other countries OBVIOUSLY, just not garrison them), and secure our borders, which is something we desperately need right now. There will be longstanding hatred of Americans based on what we have already done to people, but we might get by without another major attack and we will still be standing as a country ten years from now. If we keep up the imperial nonsense, we'll be finished within five.

Either way, I hope the state governments are prepared to fill the vacuum for what the federal part is about to be unable to do anymore. We're one failed Treasury auction away from a completely failed federal government. It has already happened in the UK.

You really need to remove your head from your ass. Charlie Daniels is a dyed-in-the-wool conservative, and it matters not what genre of music he sings or writes. Ted Nugent speaks the truth, too, and he sure ain't country. Truth is truth, regardless of the source.

As far as "just leaving Britney alone," how has that worked out? Terrorism isn't a defensive action. Their religion demands that they bring everyone else into submission or kill them. It doesn't matter to them which one you choose. Again, your ass is depriving your brain of oxygen.

How are they going to do that when the dollar is worthless? If Bernanke keeps buying treasuries, that's exactly what's going to happen.

I bet before this is over, the government starts to loot the gold they have stored up at Ft Knox

I'm sorry, no president will be able to change the religious ideas of people. Obama can not convert people. As long as their are different religions in the world, there will always be war. Always has been, always will be. How does a president think he can change that in 4 yrs., let alone in less than 100 days? These people that cry out "peace, peace" need to realize that "there is no peace" and get their head out of their ass. I would like to add something that Cicero said:

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero - 55 BC

Religion has been used to fight wars for thousands of years, you're not ever going to change that. Let alone overnight.

Fark Obama.

I believe most of that was sold under Clinton.
