The Kentucky Derby was won yesterday by an unknown, unlikely horse named California Chrome. The story of Steve Coburn and Perry Martin is extraordinary as two people from average means bought a horse and breed it with another unexceptional horse to receive a winner like California Chrome. All along the way the horse was not expected to be a winner in the sense of the Derby or Triple Crown, it was an average horse after all. But two average people in a rather average state had faith in the horse’s ability and so they lived out a dream, taking her to the Kentucky Derby. Since we are always talking about the American Dream and how it has been lost this was a true victory story of how the underdog can and will rise above expectations when the time is right.
Now juxtapose this with California Congressman Adam Schiff declaring that the renewed interest in the Benghazi terrorist attack on a US compound in Libya where he said the Democrats should boycott this investigation because it was a waste of time and money. Coming from a person who is part of system that has institutionalized wasting both time and money this was an extraordinary statement. I guess Mr. Schiff thinks the average American does not see the value in finding out what led to the murders of a sitting US Ambassador , the first in over 40 years, and three other Americans. Polls show that the average American absolutely cares about this issue. But once again we have representation in Congress of people who are so out of touch with the average person that they deem it necessary to tell us what is relevant and what is not worthy of our time or money.
Well Mr. Schiff we believe discovering and finding justice for the murders of four Americans is very worthy of our time and money and as average people we think it is imperative for our government, that after all is only supposed to exist for our protection, to do its job when Americans are murdered on US soil, no matter where that US soil is located! Mr. Schiff, your announcement that four Americans being murdered is not worthy of the time and money is again an example of a less than average person doing a below average job.
For all the social justice seeking the left decries we need, it is astounding that these four men are not among those that are worthy of justice. Well there is a primary soon and hopefully those in Mr. Schiff’s district feel like they need above average representation as he no longer represents them. Maybe we can get Mr. Coburn or Mr. Martin to run they obviously see the value in putting their time and money into an average project to see that the underdog has a shot. We are the new underdogs, the American public.
