Rattlesnake Logic & Political Correctness

As long as we insist on maintaining the  “moral high ground” we will NEVER
win the war on terrorism!  We’re in a  conflict in which we absolutely
INSIST in playing by the rules  against a maniacal group who have NO rules!

Rattlesnake Logic….

After the Boston bombing the news media  spent days and weeks trying to
determine why these men did what  they did. They want to know what America did(!) to make  these brothers so angry with us. They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The  media is in a tizzy about this new era of homegrown radicals and  about why and how they can live among us and still hate  us.

A friend of mine from Texas explained it  all to me: “Here in west Texas, I have rattlesnakes on my place,  living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch.  I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed  rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.

I kill rattlesnakes because I know a  rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I don’t stop  to wonder WHY a rattlesnake will bite me; I know it WILL bite me  because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattlesnakes do. I  don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake or have a “meaningful dialogue” with it. I just kill it. I don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me. I just kill them.  I don’t quiz a rattlesnake to see if I can find out where the  other snakes are, because (a) it won’t tell me and (b) I already  know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and  move on to the next one.

I don’t look for ways I might be able to  change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake…I just  kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake  because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know  for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in  the brush. In my lifetime I will never be able to rid my place  of rattlesnakes.

Do I fear them? Not really. Do I respect  what they can do to me and my family? Yes!! And because of that  respect, I give them the fair justice they deserve….I kill  them… 

As a country, we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists are telling the world  their goal is to kill Americans and destroy our way of life.  They have just posted two graphic videos on the internet showing  them beheading Americans. They are serious. They are exactly  like rattlesnakes. It is high time for us to start acting  accordingly.
