Let's Put Blame Where Blame Is Due!

After Representative John Murtha (D-PA) decided to blame the United States for the terror plot to level JFK Airport (because 0f our troops in Iraq) I realized it's high time we place blame where blame is due in other areas of interest.


Let's face it: fighting terrorism only causes more terrorism, so we've got to stop fighting it & it'll just go away. You know, just like every other problem in the world. Here are some other examples of where good people are to blame for bad things...

1) U.S. Taxpayers - That's right, ya jerks! Paying your taxes only causes taxes to go higher. Sure, you thought, like I once did, that it's because you elected Democrats. But no, it's paying them that causes it!

2) Doctors - Here's another example of wrongdoing. By fighting disease, these oppressive opportunists are simply paving the way for more airborne attacks at the microscopic level.

3) Construction Workers - You knew this one had to be on the list. Every time you see those guys & gals slaving under a hot sun for 12+ hours a day, you think they're helping you drive on safer roads? HA! They're really causing more potholes.

4) Justice System - Locking up criminals prevents them from committing crimes, right? WRONG!!! Locking up criminals causes perfectly innocent people to become deranged, sociopathic warmongers who go on crime sprees just to keep the percentages of murder, armed robbery, etc. at their "normal levels". C'mon! Quit wasting our tax dollars on fighting something that's going to be a problem anyway.

4a) I'll bet Representative Murtha fully supports #4. Especially if we're talking about bribery charges!

5) Teachers - You think working tons of overtime, with low pay, being unappreciated & dealing with recalcitrant miscreants in the name of fighting illiteracy is noble? Nah. You need to wake up & smell what's being shoveled. Teachers cause illiteracy by fighting it!


I think Representative Murtha has hit the nail on the head when it comes to placing blame. Heck, anyone who tries to do good in the world is subject, no, DESERVES to be impugned in this matter. As a former Marine, you'd think he'd have a clue of right from wrong. Marines - in my experience as a subordinate to one in my Navy days - tend to have very clear moral clarity. I've never met one I wouldn't be proud to count as a friend (or have on my side in a fight). Somewhere, that Marine lost his way.

I just saw on O'Reilly that The New York Times put the story of the terror attack aimed at JFK on page freakin 37! And then O'Reilly read an email from a guy, from Iowa no less, that said for O'Reilly to quit speading propoganda because there was no terror threat.

So that whole "War on Poverty" thing thing...

Judging by some of the teachers I've met recently, #5 may actually be true in some instances.

Murtha didn't lose his way; he sold it to an arab for $60 and a used virgin.

It seems to me that the "War on Poverty" has done very well for Edwards.

Matt,
Yeah, I saw that, too. It's a load of crap. I have no problem with journalists offering opinion - as long as it's labeled that way.
That being said, the media is supposed to have a responsibility to reporting the facts. It's obvious that truth is a distant second to agenda.

Gunga,
I'm a firm believer that poverty will never be eliminated as long as the people who can "do" (about 98%, I'd guess) get off their duffs & get to work.
Now, I know some people will always struggle to make ends meet. Like the judge said in Caddyshack, "The world needs ditch-diggers, too!"

Rick,
I know a teacher who agreed with that. Sadly, some teachers are not so dedicated to education as many. I feel for the ones who haven't given up.
So, Murtha sold his integrity for something he could have bought on Hollywood & Vine at 2AM? :-)

Matt,
Well, in a world where there are "two Americas", I can imagine the dimension where the poor one exists really does like the "bumper sticker" presidential candidate.
What a loon...

Unfortunately, #5 is true...not necessarily because of stupid teachers (although those are out there) but because of No Child Left Behind and the emphasis on standardized tests. The basics are being left out in order to increase test results. Sounds like an oxymoron, but it's true. You cram for the test, but immediately forget it afterwards. That's what NCLB is doing.
