Hard at Work, but a Moment to Remember

Well, I'm hard at work in the ER and the clock just rolled over midnight. My first patient of the new day is here for one of my many miracles. I sign the chart and date it 9-11...................

I pause for a moment and take time to remember that 8 years ago at this very moment we were asleep, sound in our beds, happy, content, and totally unaware of the horror about to overtake us in a very few hours.

8 years ago, over 3000 souls were going about their daily routines. In just a very few hours, those souls would be gone from us forever.

We are at a tipping point in history. There are enemies out there who wish to kill us just because of who we are and what we believe. Call it what you want, but WE ARE AT WAR.

Our chief executive has a mixture of socialist, facist, and communist beliefs. He wants to "change America forever". He is working at breakneck speed to destroy us from within.

The corrupt, foolhardy congress blindly trudges forward, spending trillions of dollars we don't have. Our unfunded liability for Medicare and Social Security alone is 101 trillion dollars and they are intent on pushing us headlong further into the abyss as they foist trillions of more deficit dollars upon us in the form of gubment healthcare and non sensical cap and trade in an effort to stem the hoax of global warming. Those in the congress who are not actively pushing us over the cliff sit idly by, afraid to say anything, afraid they will be accused of being devisive, uncivil, or politically incorrect. They're more concerned about hurting someone's feelings and their own appearances than they are about saving this great nation from extinction. Shame on them, for they are far worse than the socialists, facists, and communists.

Sooner or later something has to give. We are indeed at the tipping point. Perhaps we have already passed it. This country is being ripped apart from without and from within. Thomas Jefferson advocated abolition of the gubment when the gubment becomes destructive. Is this indeed our fate? Will there be a violent revolution or will the gubment just collapse on its own under the weight of its own lies and broken promises? By whatever means, I go on record as saying the Federal Government of the United States needs to go. It's time to start over. Will those of us who love freedom and liberty have the courage to do what is right when the time comes, or will we just let this great nation slide into the dustbin of fallen empires?

I hope and pray that at least some of us have courage like those aboard flight 93 on this fateful day 8 years ago. If we are to survive, courage and sacrifice on this scale will be mandatory. As soon as I can get this lump out of my throat, I'll get back to work. Good night.


  1. I just posted my memorial to one of those lives taken on September 11, 2001.

    I doubt any in the Obama administration truly believe we are at war with MUSLIM terrorists.

  2. The tide will turn and a new day we dawn and the rubbage of Obamaism will be swept out to sea. I see a new day coming and many Americans are beginning to stand up and be counted.

  3. I'm not so sure, Ron. The whole congress is either polluted with wimps or radicals. I fear nothing short of revolution is going to fix it.
