And there is some good news (Z would call this spectacular news as she's hoped for this from the muslim world for years, as most of you remember): citizens of Benghazi are threatening more violence directed at al-Qaeda groups if they do not immediately cease their anti-American rhetoric and demonstrations.
Now is the time for objectivity. Most Muslims could care less what some obscure filmmaker does with his time. We feel certain that most Muslims shake their head in wonderment of such immature behavior as making a film that will assault the sensitivities of people devoted to their religion. They, like most of us, think that life is far too short to get our knickers in a bunch over trivial things. And they know, as we do, that if it is blasphemous to make films about Mohammed, then in all likelihood, that person will burn in hell for ten thousand lifetime, anyway.
Nevertheless, reality tells us that whatever extremists are doing through the Middle East has very little impact on our lives here in the good old USA.
What does concern us, however, is the expansive ineptitude of our government. What a disgrace Barack Obama is to give lip service to the Americans who gave up their lives in the service of their country, and then rush off to do a jowl by jowl with Beyonce (Obama calls her 'Bey'), and then having the gall to equate his campaign workers to those dead Americans [Source]. And we are not happy with the feigned rage of Hillary Clinton, who as we previously mentioned, placed these State Department employees in harm’s way by hiring the Muslim Brotherhood to provide security for the Consulate in Benghazi [Source]. ( Though Z must admit she begrudingly respects Hillary for meeting with so many leaders because Obama was too busy at THE VIEW). We are not happy that our government spent $70,000 on an advertised apology to Middle Eastern extremists who don't care if we say we're sorry or not[Source]. We are not pleased that our government agrees to provide $1.6 billion to Cairo after they violated sovereign US territory. And finally, who in the hell does Martin Dempsey think he is to call a private citizen and suggest that he “stifle” his right of free speech?
We may not be able to suppress the maniacal behaviors of not very bright people in the Middle East, any more than we can control idiotic behaviors here at home, but we can stifle the incompetence of government officials who disgrace our country each and every time they step up to a microphone. We grow so weary of these cretins. We wish our countrymen were as angry about this as we are. We wish there would be a light at the end of the tunnel on 7 November 2012. Our votes are the only 'stifle' we've got.
