After the Boston bombing, the news media spent days and weeks trying to determine why these men
did what they did. They wanted to know what America did to make these brothers so angry with us.
They wanted to know why these men were not arrested before they did something so terrible. The media continues 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:

ďHere in west Texas I have rattlesnakes on my place living among us. I have killed a rattlesnake on the front porch. I have killed a rattlesnake on the back porch. I have killed rattlesnakes in the barn, in the shop and on the driveway. In fact, I kill every rattlesnake I encounter.

I kill rattlesnakes because I know a rattlesnake will bite me and inject me with poison. I donít stop to wonder why a rattlesnake will bite me; I know: It will bite me because it's a rattlesnake and that's what rattlesnakes do. I donít try to reason with a rattlesnakeÖI just kill it.

I donít try to get to know the rattlesnake better so I can find a way to live with the rattlesnakes
and convince them not to bite meÖI just kill them. I donít quiz a rattlesnake to see it I can find out where the other snakes are, because (a) it wonít tell me, and (b) I already know they live on my place. So, I just kill the rattlesnake and move on to the next one.

I donít look for ways I might be able to change the rattlesnake to a non-poisonous rat snake...I just kill it. Oh, and on occasion, I accidentally kill a rat snake because I thought it was a rattlesnake at the time. Also, I know, for every rattlesnake I kill, two more are lurking out there in the brush.

In my lifetime, I will never be able to rid my place of rattlesnakes. Do I fear them? No!

Do I respect what they can do to me? Yes! And because of that respect I give them the fair justice they deserve...I kill them....Ē

Maybe as a country we should start giving more thought to the fact that these jihadists are just being like rattlesnakes, and act accordingly! You canít help but wonder why our government doesnít think logically? If you donít leave the door open, rattlesnakes wonít come in!

In God We Trust!

"I love this country; it's the government I'm afraid of.Ē
