It wasn’t for me. It did seem there was a lot of violence in it. I do know from what I have read of Sharia Law, it is not compatible with our sacred documents, The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence and our U.S. Constitution. From what I’ve seen, you could not be loyal to both. I’m sure there are good people of the Islamic faith as there are of every faith and I have met some, however, there are a lot of angry young men also.
My wife’s niece dated an Arab once, but that’s another story. I do feel sorry of the Muslims who are trying to do the right thing. They have a hard road ahead of them. However, due to our lax immigration policies, porous borders, and policies of our government we have hundreds of terrorists in our country just like the one’s who brutalized San Bernardino. The townspeople accepted them, even gave them a baby shower and what happened in return? They were murdered in cold blood.
Like it or not, we are in a holy war, there are hundreds of Islamic terrorists, as well as other evil souls, amongst us. It’s time to get our heads out of the sand and wake up to reality. I don’t like it, it’s not the way I wanted to spend my senior years but reality is reality.
Many began coming here 30 years ago, blended in and then converted to terror. They had a master plan to slowly integrate into society unnoticed.
It is impossible to vet them, many purposely keep their noses clean to avoid detection, and in the case of many middle eastern countries, there is no data base to check to see if they are people of ill repute.
We also have many so-called home grown terrorists, many of whom have gone to the middle east, received training and returned and are silently waiting to strike terror into the hearts of their countrymen.
I’m not worried for me personally, I have a pretty good internal guidance system that for the most part guides me away from danger. (When I listen.) I am fearful for my country and my way of life. We live in a special country, like no other, and we are in danger of losing what millions have fought and died for. We are living in the shining city on the hill. We can’t let anyone mess it up for us. Be ever vigilant. This will happen many more times.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
