BEAST OF TERROR--
YOU DON'T SCARE ME!
ZERO PLUS 1145 DAYS,--New York, NY, Sunday, October
bin Laden isn't scary any more. The New York Times reported
this morning that his most recent video message had little effect
on voters who have been inundated with "scare tactic"
ads by both candidates.
Kerry would invite Terrorism because of weak policies
sit on either side of the political camp, each guy vying to
be the Father of the Nation is scarier than Osama bin Laden,
because, according to the messages delivered by each side, the
other guy is a Terrorist.
Kerry, if elected--according to Bush's camp--would invite Terrorism
because of slack, weak policies and ineptness to deal with critical
to Kerry's camp--had Osama bin Laden in his hands and let him
go, and wants Terrorism to continue so he and his buddies can
get rich rebuilding oil fields his Terror buddies blow up.
is an absurdity to the levels of "boogeymanism" that
each side has gone to in an attempt to paint the other candidate
as a monster far greater than Osama bin Laden, Hitler, Genghis
Khan and even Saddam Hussein.
there is a limit.
wants Terrorism to continue to rebuild oil fields and
can cry "boo" once too often. Like the little boy
who cried "wolf" at the drop of a hat, people soon
began to pay little heed to his wailings. One day when the wolf
really came, no one looked in the boy's direction and--of course--he
you bark out the word Terrorism and the public switches the
channel, searching for "Joey" or "Desperate Housewives."
of the most threatening of all viruses in the world today--the
targeting of innocent women, children and the random public
at large--is being treated as one might a noxious mosquito.
the source of this numbing rests with the two men claiming to
be most capable of leading America out of the threat of Terrorism
into a world of Peace and Prosperity.
men calling the "wolf" are, many say, wolves in men's
clothing. In the end, they won't be able to lead anyone anywhere
because they're far too busy creating bogeymen rather than solutions
to real issues.
what one thinks of either candidate, one thing is for sure.
Neither is dealing with Vigilance. Neither is setting into motion
and presenting a plan to empower the people with tools and systems
to insure that the "Beast of Terror" doesn't find
his way into the public's homes.
candidates were on this track, we would be hearing about the
responsibility of each individual and family unit to protect
against the threat of Terrorism. Sadly, the on target message
had to come from Osama bin Laden in his most recent video.
against any "boogeyman" starts at home, with mom and
dad checking under the bed for "monsters" and assuring
the kids that there isn't any "creature" lurking in
must protect the children from the boogeymen
Terrorism--the kind that makes a child grow into an adult who
is full of Fear, Intimidation and Complacency--can be quashed
at home, and only there. It is what a parent does and says that
makes a child feel safe and secure, not what a President or
a politician says.
real citizen of America--puts all his or her trust in the lap
of parents and guardians. If there is some "monster"
or "creature" lurking in the bushes or under the bed,
then mom or dad is the first line of support.
two political candidates were on target, each would be reminding
Americans who was in charge of national and international security,
and that is not the government.
"will of the people" has always been the source of
unlimited power, not the will of the politicians. Politicians
come and go like the wind or the figures in a revolving door.
There is no real substance to them. They are ghosts at the best,
pausing only to remind us all that they have no power even though
we bow to them and pretend they have it.
the "will of the people" that has the substance and
true power over the land and its future, for the will of the
people never really changes. It is always the same--to enjoy
the most peace and most prosperity possible.
change that will by imposing their own.
run to their parents...not to government to stave off
their tears and fears
why a child does not run to the President of the United States
or Secretary of Defense when he or she is scared at night. A
child cries out for Mom or Dad.
true Sentinel of Vigilance, the true Terror Hunter is the parent.
It always has been and always will be.
Terror Hunter is the parent
is true that on this Halloween, not even Osama bin Laden can
scare people. The numbness of being threatened and hearing two
men tell how the other will destroy America has run its course.
in the final analysis, parents will sit back and see that the
true way to insure protection for their children isn't by voting
a certain party or candidate into office--but, taking charge
of the role of parenting with more gusto, more zest.
parents will see the Pledge of Vigilance as the true way to
sweep away all the bogeymen
