Jail the guards, release the inmates!

It’s hard to keep up with the daily lunacies coming out of Washington, but this one calls for special attention.

On the one hand, it’s almost inevitable, thanks to all the liberals, that out gov’t will be releasing jihadis onto the streets of America. They will be brought to the mainland to stand trial in civil courts. They will be acquitted on legal technicalities. And they won’t be deported for fear of “torture.” So the only alternative is to release the enemy onto American soil.

That, of itself, is mind-numbingly stupid, yet that’s only half the story. On the other hand, liberals also want to jail every gov’t official who was complicit in the so-called “torture” of jihadis.

So, just to keep score: on the one hand they want to spring our enemies from jail while, on the other hand, they want to jail the men and women who tried to shield us from the enemy.

You know the old line about patients running the asylum. But this is worse. In general, patients in a mental ward are not a serious threat to others. Rather, they’re a danger to themselves.

But what the liberals are doing is more like putting the inmates in charge of the prison. Put the prison warden and prison guards behind bars while we make the convicts the prison guards or wardens.

Isn’t that creative? Let’s reverse the roles. Arm our enemies and disarm our soldiers.

Or, to vary the metaphor, it’s as if passengers simply got bored with having pilots, bus drivers, and railway engineers who were sober, had 20-20 vision, and good reflexes. Where’s the fun in that?

Let’s do something adventurous for a change. Let’s hire junkies and alcoholics to pilot our planes and drive our busses or trains. Add a little excitement to life!

Having Obama as President or Pelosi as Speaker is like being strapped into a bus or plane with pilot or driver who’s drunk or high on LSD.

It wouldn’t be so bad if the passenger manifest was limited to passengers who voted for these whackjobs. Unfortunately, the rest of us are also along for the ride.

Now, this level of mass suicide goes well beyond mere stupidity. It’s something you can only explain by recourse to sin: “Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart” (Eph 4:17-18).

    Scary indeed. Trusting in the Lord is going to be really trusting in the Lord.

    They know what they want, and they will do all they can to get their agenda accomplished, and yet they are absolutely meatheads, "dead from the neck up", as Archie Bunker said.

    And yet i pray God would have mercy on our leaders. Amen.
