Man, you gotta love a straight up, common sense guy like retired Army officer and now U.S. Representative, Allen Bernard West. While most of phony America is lying and misleading and playing "candy-ass," West is laying it down like Americans used to, straight and honest. Atlanta's native son and now a Plantation, FL resident, West rose to prominence by not taking any guff from battlefield terrorists or politicians. The decorated Airborne officer and his troops famously administered a beatdown on some Islamo raghead in Taji, Iraq when he learned the Raggie may have intel pertaining to planned attacks on him and his soldiers. When the America hating Islamo Nazi wouldn't speak up, West fired his 9mm next to the dirtbags' head and he miraculously began talking. Oh God, what was LTC West thinking? That's not permitted on a battlefield in this screwed-up PC age! Our yellow-bellied Army leadership agreed and promptly took action against our military hero via an Article 15 and a $5000 fine. West paid up and promptly retired with full benefits after serving his country in hell-holes for 22-years. Asked if he would, in hindsight, act any differently in that situation, West said, "If the lives of my Soldiers are at stake, I'd go through hell with with a gasoline can." (I'm thinking the 9mm would appear if the situation was to arise again) While our spineless politicians and military "leadership" was selling him out, West was quickly garnering the respect and support of the only populous that matters,"We the People." That overwhelming support led him to run for political office and after a key endorsement by Sarah Palin, successfully showed Ron Klein the door and took his seat (Does everything happen for a reason or what?). Remarkably, West is the first black Republican Congressman from Florida since Josiah Walls left office in 1876. (Hey Florida, what took you so damn long?) West continued to do the right thing and backed our Marines when 'all hell broke loose' over them urinating on Taliban terrorist corpses. Later, Debby Blabberman Schultz thought she wanted some of the LTC and has since been verbally slapped-down repeatedly by our no-BS Soldier representative. Oh how I yearn for the days when men were men, honesty was natural, and sane, on-the-spot military leadership and decision making was admired and respected. Mr. Allen West, there are millions of Americans who know and remember those authentic days of old and we respect you for remembering and living them today.
