Suicide Bombers in Russia & The State of the Union

[Note: these two post were combined to make one long one. This post was delayed due to some indecision.]

First, I would like to give my condolences to the family of the injured and dead in the recent terrorist attacks in Russia. Terrorism is terrorism, no matter what side of the ocean you're on.

There's one other thing I want to mention about this story, and that's the fact that the Russian authorities found a head of one of the suicide bombers, and the Russian media reported that head to be Arab in appearance.

I read that, and i thought, could you imagine what kind of screaming would go on in America if one of the mainstream media outlets had dared to call a terrorist a Muslim. No one wants to tell the truth. These leech Muslims are everywhere, and everyone is afraid of being called racist, despite the fact that Islam is not a race. However, this is not the first time that Russia has brushed against these animals. Another example is in the Beslan school attack (Warning: Linked story contains graphic descriptions.)

May the victims of this attack, and the victims of all these Muslim-perpetrated terrorist attacks, rest in peace.


Now we're going to talk about something else, and that is Odummer's State of the Union address. I'm not going to spend too much time on it, but Gateway Pundit had a link to the speech transcript, and I thought we could look at a few pieces of it.

(For the record, I did not watch this speech. I have better things to waste my life on that Obama's SOTU speeches)

Let's not start at the top, let's just jump in:

...[T]here’s a reason the tragedy in Tucson gave us pause. Amid all the noise and passion and rancor of our public debate, Tucson reminded us that no matter who we are or where we come from, each of us is a part of something greater -– something more consequential than party or political preference.
It's funny that he brings up Tucson and says that it reminds us we're all part of something greater, especially after his party raced to blame everyone else for political rhetoric that supposedly started the shooting. And by 'funny' I mean 'hypocritical.'

At stake right now is not who wins the next election
Umm, yes it is. Do you know how traumatic the thought of you having a second term is?

-– after all, we just had an election. At stake is whether new jobs and industries take root in this country, or somewhere else. It’s whether the hard work and industry of our people is rewarded. It’s whether we sustain the leadership that has made America not just a place on a map, but the light to the world.
Yes, Barack, but you keep wanting to raise taxes on businesses, and therefore send them overseas. Or your cronies want to make the minimum wage higher, in which case jobs will still flee. America is a light, but you want to snuff that light out.

We are poised for progress. Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is growing again.
Then why is unemployment still so high? Seriously.

I could probably spend all day doing this, but I have better things to do with my time. Ann Coulter sums the speech up the best:

Obama said, "We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook."

And then the government outlawed Edison's great invention, made the Wright brothers' air travel insufferable, filed anti-trust charges against Microsoft and made cars too expensive to drive by prohibiting oil exploration, and right now -- at this very minute -- is desperately trying to regulate the Internet.
That pretty much sums it up.

May the victims of the Russian bomb attacks rest in peace, and may the U.S. be blessed with an impeachment hearing - before next year's SOTU.
