Workplace Violence at Fort Hood, and More in Chad’s Steaming Pile
Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.
1. Terrorism = Workplace Violence (link)
Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation's Armed Forces at home.
During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.
The Obama Administration continues to play these PC games instead of telling the truth. Fort Hood wasn't violence in the workplace. If it is, then why not label 9/11 that as well. After all, the 9/11 attacks took place at someone's job. Being politically correct has already hurt this country, and at some point it's going to lead to someone dying. If it hasn't already.
2. Virtual Embassy shutdown (link)
Less than 12 hours after opening, the Obama administration’s “virtual embassy” in Iran was blocked by Tehran’s digital gatekeepers on Wednesday.
Instead of seeing a welcome message from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Iranians trying to reach the site were directed to an Iranian government Web page. It warned that visiting the American site was “against the law.”
I'm not sure if I blame Iran on this one. Would you really want to listen to Hillary Clinton speak? Speaking of Hillary Clinton...
3. Hillary Clinton for President! (link)
Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is still alive and today it emerged from the shadows to remind supporters that she "made history" in the 2008 campaign and that mementos from that bid are now for sale.
In an E-mail, the Hillary Clinton for President campaign revived speculation that she is still interested in the Oval Office despite new denials that President Obama is considering replacing Vice President Joe Biden with his secretary of state.
The E-mail comes as a new Washington Whispers poll finds that Clinton is the runaway favorite of those seeking a third party candidate. In our poll, 39 percent picked Clinton as their choice to head a third party. Mike Huckabee is next at 20 percent and Donald Trump dead last at 12 percent.
Again, I doubt she would challenge Obama but I'm sure she wouldn't mind running for President or even running as VP.
