Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Thursday, 2018.01.18
There is an important law about power that is too often overlooked by rational
and peace-loving people. Any form of power, from the most primitive to the most
mind-boggling, is always amplified enormously when it falls into the hands of
those whose behavior is wild, erratic, and unpredictable. A gun being waved back
and forth by a maniac is far more disturbing to us than the gun in the holster
of the policeman, though both weapons are equally capable of shooting us dead.
And what is true of guns is far more true in the case of nukes.

Democrats – The Party Of Spineless Wimp Asses

At the ABC News Republican presidential debate at Sheslow Auditorium on the campus of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, today, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani observed:

“In four debates, not a single Democrat said the word, ‘Islamic terrorists.’ Now that is taking political correctness to extreme.”

I take exception to that. The Democrats fear of uttering the phrase “Islamic terrorists” is extremely politically INcorrect. It is politically correct to call Islamic terrorists what they are: “Islamic terrorists.” It’s a clear indication of the Democratic party’s willingness to self-castrate in the name of appeasement. A behavioral characteristic they are all too willing to inflict on America. It’s as if they believe their elitist sense of “higher morals” will somehow magically protect them from bad things they do not understand.
