Mr. President, Stick It

Oh please.

There was not one damn word of contrition for your failures.

Your administration failed to identify the terrorists, despite multiple opportunities.  The woman came to this country and was improperly vetted.  The man was here and apparently had multiple overseas contacts with terrorists, which I remind everyone is already legal for the CIA to intercept (on the other end.)

It appears that your failures not only included missing clear and discoverable information on communication but in addition there appears to be evidence that both money and training flowed from overseas.  I remind you that every single transaction that flows through FedWire or is cleared through federal facilities (and that's damn near all of them Internationally) is subject to your administration's surveillance.

YOU ARE A FAILURE, MR. PRESIDENT, AND THE "BENIGN" EXPLANATION IS THAT YOU HAVE SPENT YOUR TIME PLAYING GOLF INSTEAD OF ATTENDING TO BUSINESS.  THE MALIGNANT POSSIBILITY IS FAR WORSE.

In response your administration now wishes to (again) demand that we give up our right to life while it is under direct threat as a direct and proximate result of your failures.  You place this on the table in the form of further demands for "gun control" despite the fact that the two terrorists were only stopped because good guys had guns and they got to commit as many murders as they did because their victims were unarmed targets, incapable of shooting back due to lack of arms on their person. 

I have one word in response: NO.

If you will not protect this nation then the people of this nation need to and must protect themselves!  THIS is why we have a Second Amendment and it is time for the NRA and everyone else to shut up about compromises and insist that everyone, everywhere have their right respected to cut the 2+ minute response time to an incident like this to two seconds.  There is only one way to do that and you know damn well what it is: Respect the words of the Second Amendment as written and cut the crap nationwide.

WE DEMAND THAT SINCE YOU WILL NOT DO YOUR JOB WE BE LEFT ALONE TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS IF AND WHEN IT BECOMES NECESSARY, AND IT IS NOW CONCLUSIVELY EVIDENT THAT IT HAS BEEN AND WILL BE IN THE FUTURE.

You claim we aren't at war with (radical) Islam but radical Islam has declared war on us.  It did so prior to 9/11 and has done so several times since, emphasizing that these people intend to establish a religious caliphate displacing all existing forms of government and will not stop until they achieve it.  They intend to take territory and consolidate power, murdering anyone who gets in their way and they have repeatedly shown that they have no intention of compromising on this point.  That's a war, whether you like it or not.  Our choice as those who refuse to submit to same is to prepare to fight or prepare to die.  I may be an old bastard and well beyond prime fighting age but given those choices I choose fight.  You choose to hide behind your Secret Service detail, fences and armed guards.

You are a coward Mr. President, but not everyone in this country is.  I understand plain language just fine and these people have made quite clear their intent through both word and deed.

You speak of tolerance and multiculturalism but you spoke not one damned word about the gay people being thrown off buildings by Daesh everywhere they manage to take territory.  How can you square your alleged view of people's right to choose who they love with the barbarism that you sit silently by and watch happen.  Oh, and not one word for the women stoned and Jews (and Christians) that have had their heads sawed off either -- it's not just gays.  I'll bet any of those dead people would have loved to have one of those "powerful" guns you want to ban; at least they'd get a couple of those assholes before they were tossed off the roof.

YOU are the JV squad Mr. President, and since you have repeatedly shown that you're incapable of giving a damn about anything this country was founded on, say much less discharging your oath of office and duty to meet all threats to the Constitution foreign and domestic it is time for you to resign.
