In today's News & Observer, one of the articles highlighting art (anti-Bush art, to be specific) also commented that there are numerous "End of Era" parties going on today. That part doesn't bother me too much. But the next comment did. There are also "Shoe-Outs" taking place today, where groups of people plan to throw their worn-out shoes at one of the White House gates. I think everyone who is so willing to desecrate a public icon with such extreme disrespect needs to first be fined for littering, then have their citizenship revoked on the grounds of treason, and then deported to a country of their choice. (And yes, I feel the same way about the NC State students who wanted Obama dead after the election).
I recognize that people who are non-believers (non-Christians, that is) do not adhere to the Biblical principles of "obeying and praying for those placed in authority over you." And that's their choice. But when someone is blatantly disrespectful and hateful to anyone whom the voters/the public put in office, they are anti-American, not to mention anti-Christian. I didn't vote for Clinton, and I didn't like his policies, but I didn't diss him with the venom that I've seen leftists heap on Bush.
And meanwhile, I think I'm ready to start gearing up for 2010. If you haven't already, then join the pub - the republicans that is, as we hope to reclaim Congress in the next election. In the words of Hilary Clinton, "There's too much at stake."
