'News and Views of a Frustrated Editor and His Featured Guests '
After the Boston bombing the news media has spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men did what they did.They want to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us.They want to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible.The media is in a tizzy about this new era of home grown radicals,and about why they could live among us and still hate us.
A friend of mine from Texas explained it all to me::"Here in west Texas l have rattlesnakes on my place ,living among us l have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch.l have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch.l have killed a rattlesnake in the barn , in the shop and on the driveway.In fact ,l kill every rattlesnake l encounter.
l kill rattlesnake because l know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison.l don’t stop to wonder why a rattlesnake will bite me: l know :it will bite me because it’s a rattlesnake and that’s what rattle-snake do.l don’t try to reason with a rattlesnake .l just kill it.l don’t try to get to know the rattlesnake better so l can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes and convince them not to bite me.l just kill them.l don’t quiz a rattle snake to see it l can find out where the other snakes are, because (A) it won’t tell me,and (B) l already know they live on my place.So, l just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.l don’t look for ways l might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake because l thought it was s rattlesnake at the time.Also , l know ,for every rattlesnake l kill ,two more are lurking out there in the brush.In my lifetime l will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes.
DO I FEAR THEM ?NO ! Do l respect what they can do to me ? Yes ! And because of that respect l give them the fair justice they deserve …l kill them…."
May be as a country we should start giving more thoughts to the fact that these Jihadists are like rattlesnakes ,and act accordingly !
