Jelly spends time thinking about the "war in heaven" and often wonders how many more of the 'hosts' would have fallen had the war gone on longer. The Bible says that one third of the host fell. It was a war. There were fence sitters. There were double agents. Jelly often wonders if some of the awful people who have walked on this Earth would have fallen given a longer war. Would there have been a Hitler, Stalin, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, etc.? Jelly's just saying ... think about it.
Jelly has been following the press coverage surrounding the alleged CIA destruction of hundreds of hours of interrogation of top Al Qaeda. After 9-11 attacks, Americans (by and large) clamored for action. It's interesting to track the change of heart many Americans have had as the war in Iraq has continued and American forces and operatives have done all they can to help protect America.
Freedom comes at a price. It always has. It always will. Americans need to ask themselves how important is freedom? Jelly does not want legislation interfering with ensuring the safety and freedom of Americans. Yes, this is a provocative statement. When push comes to shove, and it's an American life versus any other, Jelly chooses to protect the American life. If no lives need be at stake, even better; however, the world in which we live makes that unlikely. Jelly says - do not handicap law enforcement, FBI, CIA, military efforts, or even those of Blackwater or other mercenaries that are engaged in protecting American interests.
America is under attack even from within. This week a troubled youth in Omaha decided to become infamous and put a shopping mall under attack. Last year a trouble youth decided to go down in history by attacking Virginia Tech. Shortly thereafter a man began to shoot up Trolley Square in Salt Lake City. What's Jelly's point? Americans cannot be passive. Americans must be proactive in protecting themselves and our freedoms. Americans need to understand that we are not safe here and terrorism is not our only threat. Americans need to understand that sometimes distasteful things must happen and we should be grateful that there are men and women willing to see it through - to do what is needed.
Jelly says - understand that you are not safe. Do not expect anyone else to make you safe. Ask yourself what you will do when you are presented with a threatening situation. Will you hide in a bathroom or clothes rack? Will you use your body as a barricade against a door while others make their escape? If you had been in the WTC, Pentagon, or that plane forced down in PA on 9-11, what would have been doing?
Freedom is not for the feint of heart. It takes courage to stand for what is right. It takes a stout heart to be willing to die for what one believes. Jelly asks you - what are you willing to do to protect your family? What would you do in one of these terrible situations that have faced Americans? Will you hide? Or will you fight?
Jelly will not sacrifice any rights in the name of safety. Jelly says that Americans should be gathering their arms not sacrificing them. If Americans give up their right to bear arms and their arms, then only the criminals and terrorists will be armed. Jelly will fight and protect those who need it. Jelly knows that courage does not mean there is no fear but rather that one is willing to act despite the fear.
Stand up America! Jelly says - it's time to stop being a pussy.
