"Uneasy lies the head..."

"... that wears the crown."

So, the DHS and Janet Napolitano are afraid that vets might become homegrown terrorists.

This has outraged  many veterans groups.

You know what I think?

I think dear Janet is right.

Before you put on the uniform, you swear an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The very same document that prevents the government from, say, for example, taking over private businesses, or seizing property from one citizen to give to another in the name of "fairness." Or "spreading the wealth."

The Powers That Be know this, and know there are millions of patriotic folks trained in the art of doing violence that are not so enthusiastic about the current administration's  prescriptions for Hope and Change.

If, Heaven forbid, it comes time to press the reset button on this country, I garan-damn-tee it'll be a vet with his finger on the button.
