The Daily Gripe #19 - It's Not Over, America!

It's time for The Daily Gripe, from Average Joe American.

It's been another fine day in the middle of Indiana's corn country. Nothing major to gripe about besides the rain -- and man did it rain!

We went to Indianapolis today to pick up a new vehicle. I have now returned my wife's gas guzzling SUV to her, and I must say that I'm glad to be rid of it. I put a thousand miles on it over the past week, and spent a bundle on gasoline. It'll be nice to spend a little less time at the pumps for a while.

I guess there is a gripe for today, and it's been all over the news: another terror plot against the U.S. has been discovered, and foiled, thanks to our staunchest allies, the Brits. And so close to the anniversary of 9/11.

It's not over, America. There is a real reason that we're fighting a war in Iraq. Whether you believe invading Iraq was necessary or could have been avoided, we were attacked some five years ago, unprovoked and unjustified by any measure! A swift decisive response was required, and I, for one, support President Bush and our troops fighting to put an end to the kind of cowardice that was uncovered today by our brothers across the pond. Like it or not, we are at war, and that war was brought to us. We have only two choices: fight first and win, or stand down and die. Would you rather die for freedom, or tyranny? It really gripes me that so many spineless Americans (and others) would rather bow to terrorism than stomp it out. If you're one of those without a spine, maybe should click on out of here and over to Oz and ask The Wizard for a spine!
