Let 'em eat sand

From Jewish World Review
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced a goal of putting an American on the moon by the end of the decade. That goal was achieved eight years later. What drove America was the "space race" with the Soviet Union. ....

It is going to take an enemy to break our oil addiction. The perfect enemy is the oil-producing states with a track record for funding terrorism and whose brand of religion produces young fanatics determined to destroy the West.

If we can get to the moon, virtually from scratch and in just eight years, we can become independent of the mullahs, ayatollahs, sheiks, imams and whackos like the president of Iran and assorted other world criminals who hate us and want to destroy us.

I once told my daughter that the US wouldn't put up with sky-high gas prices for long because of our "f-you" attitude. "If they jack the prices up too high for too long, we'll find alternatives and tell OPEC to go eat sand."

Maybe it's time that became policy.
