Cancer is a form of rot. It is known as an aggressive destroyer of the body. It is often a silent killer, going unnoticed for years before being diagnosed. And far too often, the delay makes it an incurable affliction.
One may be wondering why a discussion of cancer has any relevance to an editorial dedicated to Second Amendment issues . The reason is found in the recent announcement that Senator Ted Kennedy has been diagnosed with brain cancer of the left parietal lobe . The parallel can not be missed; America’s cancer is now afflicted with the same rot he has been perpetuating for decades. And this is one of the few cases I can think of, where cancer will have a positive effect.
According to the Centre For Neural Skills , The parietal lobes can be divided into two functional regions. One involves sensation and perception and the other is concerned with integrating sensory input, primarily with the visual system. The first function integrates sensory information to form a single perception (cognition). The second function constructs a spatial coordinate system to represent the world around us. Individuals with damage to the parietal lobes often show striking deficits. Damage to the left parietal lobe can result in what is called “Gerstmann’s Syndrome.” It includes right-left confusion, difficulty with writing (agraphia) and difficulty with mathematics (acalculia). It can also produce disorders of language (aphasia) and the inability to perceive objects normally (agnosia).
Based on this clinical description of damage to the parietal lobes, it is clear that Kennedy has been a sufferer for decades and it explains much of his behavior. Let’s look at these points individually; Left Right Confusion: This is a man who thinks that undermining national defense is a patriotic act. He thinks shredding the Constitution is a way to protect sacred liberties. Difficulty with mathematics: Kennedy has been a leading proponent of high taxes for years and a firm believer that the more Americans are taxed the better off they are. He has also been long a proponent of wild government spending programs with no regard for the limits of government income. Disorders of Language: His public speaking has long been a source of embarrassment. Both Limbaugh and Hannity have repeatedly played examples of his nonsensical ramblings on their programs. Inability to perceive objects normally: He thinks himself a patriot but works to destroy our national borders and national defense. He views patriots as fascists and violent 60’s Liberals as defenders of liberty. He treats criminals as victims…… and gun owners who want to protect themselves as criminals. If it was good and honest and decent, he was against it. If it was evil, dishonest and degenerate, he was for it.
The fact of the matter is that Ted Kennedy has been a cancer for decades. When ever there was a way to undermine this country, Ted Kennedy was always first in line to press the cause. He has always been a friend of America’s enemies and quick to condemn the US. He has been an eager leader of the Liberal wrecking crew that has done so much to harm our Republic.
Under normal circumstances, I would have compassion for someone afflicted with cancer. But in the case of Ted Kennedy it is not in me. I look at the damage this treasonous piece of crap has wrought over the last 4 decades and I say good riddance. Frankly speaking, I think it is quite fitting that he is getting a dose of his own medicine. And as cold as this sounds, I hope he lingers for many a year, slowly rotting away.
The death of Ted Kennedy means that the nation is better off. It means a prime enemy of the Second Amendment has left the scene, never to return. It means a precious liberty has outlived another of it’s attackers. It means we can now turn our efforts against the panoply of Kennedy wanna-be’s that remain. Strap it on. Lock and load. The battle continues.
