Vote For Hillary

hillary-clinton_3

“Fast forward to the present day, and President Obama—the antiwar candidate and Nobel Peace Prize winner who has waged war longer than any American president and whose legacy includes targeted drone killings and at least 1.3 million lives lost to the U.S.-led war on terror—is paying lip service to the victims of America’s nuclear carnage, all the while continuing to feed the war machine.”

I admire Barack Obama. He is a stealthy war monger before whom the Liberal, “Peace Loving” Democratic Party prostrate themselves in devotion while condemning Bush, Trump and Dick Cheney for same.

Barack has waged war across the planet whilst apologizing for wars waged by other Presidents and, oddly enough, he doesn’t seem to see the irony inherent in his actions.

Drone Warfare? No big deal.

Signature Death from Above? Let us not speak of it.

Terror Tuesdays? Nothing to discuss.

Assassinating US Citizens overseas? We care not.

Democrats still love their Nobel Prez.

Have Democrats always been this oblivious and specious in their yearnings for global accord and human harmony? Let’s look back to the days of Kennedy, LBJ and FDR to see. Better yet, let us look to Truman. He who dropped the only Nuclear Weapons in the history of Humankind. He who bungled us into the Korean War. He who launched the Cold War that terrified Americans long before the Wahhabists rose out of the deserts of Arabia [again].

We could ask Clinton about peace. His fallacious peace accords in the Balkans and abortive attempt to save Somalia. His tenure was one long war called Desert Fox of which the American people were all but aware.

And then we have the peace devotee Hillary Clinton. She who has never seen a war which she did not adore. From the Balkans to Yemen to Libya to Ukraine and soon Iran.

Vote for Hillary and let the War Profiteers lust for Gold be appeased. We shall sacrifice a new generation of Americans for Hillary and her Corporate Sponsors.

Yes. For we must let loose the dogs of war. Too long have they been leashed by rules of engagement, collateral damage and the doctrine of proportionality. We must have massive retaliation. We must have punitive incursions followed by nation building. We must elect the Queen of Chaos.

Vote for Hillary!!!

Yes, vote for her.

I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.”

Raise the Minimum Wage!

d020d17d0946f5f743b33fb305729a41

If a Minimum Wage is the humanitarian thing to do, why do we not legislate a minimum wage on Multinational Corporations?

 
Make them pay a “living wage” across the globe. Why do only Western Nations deserve this living wage while we buy products from multinationals made cheap ONLY by slave and microscopic-wage labor.
 
Because our “humanity” ends at the frontiers of Western Civilization?

Conservative Stupidity

One of the great failures of our foreign policy throughout the world arises from the fact that we have permitted ourselves to be identified everywhere with the old, doomed, and rotting colonial-imperialist small European nations which once imposed upon so much of the world the pattern of exploitation and economic and political domination…. None of these rebellious, awakening peoples will…trust us or cooperate in any way so long as we remain identified with the economic colonial system of Europe, which represents, even in its capitalistic pattern, the last remnants of feudalism…. We leave these awakening peoples with no choice but to turn to Russian and communist comfort and promise of Utopia.

Louis Bromfield

We repeat this mistake today against a newly contrived enemy.

An all-pervasive propaganda has established a myth of inevitability in American action: all wars were necessary, all wars were good. The burden of proof rests with those who contend that America is better off, that American security has been enhanced, and that prospects of world peace have been improved by American intervention in four wars in half a century. Intervention began with deceit by McKinley; it ends with deceit by Roosevelt and Truman.

Perhaps we would have a rational foreign policy…if Americans could be brought to realize that the first necessity is the renunciation of the lie as an instrument of foreign policy.

Hillary Worship and the War Mongering Democrats

12279052_10206640447582542_6706076435805059480_n.jpg

 

I know many Democrats who worship this woman. She can do no wrong. It’s all a vast right wing conspiracy.

Much like with Nobel Obama who can do no wrong.

The man who is handed a Nobel for nothing goes on to create “Terror Tuesdays,” Military Age Males strategy, gets nicknamed “the Drone Ranger,” all but invades and causes the downfall of Yemen and it’s government after propping them up, supportsSaudi Arabia and kisses the ass of the House of Saud, has assassinated four US Citizens overseas on his authority alone…zero due process, gave guns to drug lords for purposes that only he and his idiot AG could discern and believe, gave weapons and other equipment to Qaddafi’s enemies even after Qaddafi had all but stepped down from power, has armed several Sunni Islamic groups in and around Syria leading directly to the rise of ISIS and I could go on and on and on.

But none of that is his fault. It’s all the fault of Bush and Cheney.

Democrats hate any war that isn’t their own.

They called Bush a war monger. They call Republicans war mongers.

They maintain steady silence on Obama’s wars and inept strategies and tactics.

American participation in the two World Wars were presided over by Democrats Wilson and FDR. Truman dropped the atomic bombs on Japan, Truman bungled us into Korea and the Cold War. LBJ got us into Vietnam.

But Reagan was a warmonger. lol

Ike ended Korea. Nixon ended Vietnam.

Barack Obama tried to end Iraq but just made it worse and doubled down by arming the worst Islamic militias in the history of the world.

But Democrats want peace. Hillary can be trusted. Sanders just wants to give us “free” stuff.

If it weren’t such a tragedy, it would be funny.

Michael Moore and Freedom of Speech

 10959850_10202440991861181_8297049850636645370_n

America has been supporting despotic monarchies since, at least, World War II. That thanks to our late, “Great” President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. It is disgusting to me and should be to any American that we are so deeply embedded with the tyrants of this world. All in the name of Corporate Greed. But don’t let that stop anyone from decrying Moore as a hypocrite or a fat ass. I think it disgusting how obese MM has become. He looks like a muppet, he’s so fat.

 
Some of the points he makes in his documentaries are very much laden with truths. Yet, he has attacked corporate greed and does profit from the same system. I can’t blame the guy for using the system as it is. He cannot change the whole of the system. He can only make others aware. Certainly, he is a bit of an ass in the way that he gets his point across. I have a certain amount of respect for that, though.
 
My goal in life has always been to comfort the afflicted while afflicting the comfortable. Working within the system is a good way to go about it. The only persons who can work outside of the system are those willing to be outlaws and those who are born to a silver spoon. Moore serves his purpose and I, for one, am glad to have him speaking his truth. His truth is as valid as many others, more valid than some and less than others. To dismiss all of Moore’s work simply because it makes one uncomfortable is unintelligent and speaks more to the listener than the crier.

Moore is still an American. Even if there are aspects of America with which he disagrees. The Conservative Right hates more because he exercises his right to Freedom of Speech. This is hypocritical of the Right. Moore should speak his mind and tell his truth. If that leaves the Right butthurt, so be it. I, for one, can see where Moore has been correct. A good, healthy, open minded reading of history proves Moore to be correct in many of his more salient points in his documentaries. Moore recently stated that snipers were cowards and shot people in the back. Many folks who have been to War agree with this sentiment. A sniper hides and takes shots at folks who have no idea from where they are being sniped. This is the nature of the job. It’s the same in any war, their snipers are murderous cowards. Our snipers are valiant heroes. That’s the nature of propaganda.

It’s the same with insurgents. The Founding Fathers and the Revolutionary heroes such as the Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, are hailed as heroes. There is not a whole lot of difference in the tactics of Marion and those of ISIS or al Qaeda. Both used terror tactics to achieve a goal of independence. We see it differently only because those tactics when used by ISIS and al Qaeda are an attack on our values and our world view. However, there is no difference. In the American Civil War, Federal Soldiers led by General Sherman raped, pillaged and burned their way through the South. ISIS is doing the same thing in Iraq and Syria. We hail Sherman as a hero for the same actions for which we deem ISIS as villainous and evil.

It’s propaganda. Michael Moore has done nothing more than bring transparency to our hypocrisy and we hate him for it. He’s put a mirror to our face and forced us to peer into our own souls. Sometimes, that viewing leaves us disquieted. This is the nature of what I call Statism. The State wishes us to believe that we are good when we perpetrate evil. We excuse our own excesses. We rationalize our murders and genocidal behaviors. They are evil because they wish that which we do not. It matters not what it is. It only matters that the State tells us that they are wrong and we are right. They are evil. We are righteous. Despite the fact that our actions mirror one another.

Moore is guilty of nothing more than bringing a different perspective to the discussion. We hate him because his perception makes us uncomfortable. That and he is as guilty as the rest of us. He defends or stays silent in the face of the criminality of Obama and the Left. Yet, screams to the heavens when Bush was taking the exact same actions as Obama does now. I am waiting for the Michael Moore treatment of the illegal assassination of Anwar Al Awlaki and his son. Until Moore is as outspoken of the crimes of Obama as he was of the crimes of Bush, I see Moore as nothing more than a Statist propagandist for the Left. I have no respect for the man based on this hypocrisy. That and he is way to intelligent and wealthy to be such an obese monstrosity. He must know that his obesity will kill him.

 
Such is my belief at any rate.

The Last Century Accomplished Nothing!

10632816_276425285894320_9038517133952519757_n

I do not think that Hillary is Hitler. One politician is about the same as the other. Some, like Hitler, are simply more successful in moving society to accomplish their aims. The aims are all the same. Control of the populace in a given geo-political area for the advancement of personal power. There is nothing more to it.

There are no Great Leaders out there.

Look at the great leaders in history.

Lincoln — He kinda freed the slaves. But not really. In order to keep the South in the Union, he prosecuted a war which claimed the lives of millions. How is he different than Hitler or Stalin or FDR or Churchill or any of the Monarchs of the 17th Century.

FDR took America to war for Democracy and to save the Free World. In the end, more people were enslaved by communism than were threatened by the madness of Hitler.

Ike, JFK, LBJ took us to war in Vietnam to stop the communist dominoes from falling. In the end, those communist dominoes fell anyway. Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia all fell to communism. Indonesia became a dictatorship.  Nixon’s “peace with honor” all but ensured the fall of Cambodia to the Khmer Rouge.  Congress’ failure to support South Vietnam or Laos after our withdrawal ensured their fall to communism.  What did we accomplish except to participate in slaughter and sacrifice our citizen soldiers to madness and arrogance.

We supported the Indonesia dictator.

How were the people of Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos better off after our War of Liberation?

In Iraq, Bush “liberated” the Iraqi people from Saddam Hussein only to have Obama hand those same people over to a Shi’ite despots and the Islamic madmen of the Islamic State.  All the while, we supported the Monarchy which fuels Sunni Extremism via Dollar Diplomacy.  The Wahhabis owe everything to Saudi Arabia.  The Wahhabis are ISIS, al Qaeda, al Jihad, the Muslim Brotherhood and every other Sunni Islamic Extremists group extant.

In what war has America actually helped anyone?

We defeated Germany and Japan? They went on to become economic superpowers. This would have occurred anyway. In fact, the war with Japan was over the US and Britain keeping resources away from Japan that would have allowed them to become an economic superpower. We basically warred with Japan for five years in order to destroy them so that they could recover and become exactly what we had attempted to stop them from becoming. Millions died because FDR and his economic obstructionism. Yet, FDR is a hero and Hitler is a villain.

It was the same with Germany. Britain did not want Germany to become master of the Continent. So, we warred with them twice in conflagrations which engulfed the world in flames…so that Germany could become the economic master of the Continent.

What did we accomplish with our wars?

Asia slowly recovers with Laos and Cambodia lagging and their people suffering in poverty. Vietnam is becoming a mini-economic superpower and are loosening their economic controls so that capitalists can profit. This benefits the State and the Capitalists. There is relatively little benefit to the people.

Germany is the power of the Continent.

Britain has lost it’s empire. (I suppose that’s a plus).

America is still an economic power though we are doing our best to implode.

Russia is what it has always been. The poor man of Europe and the villain of the east.

China is a burgeoning beast with the potential to ruin or save the world as it has always been.

And history begins to repeat itself.

Is war on the horizon?

It seems that Political Leaders of the World are repeating the sins of the last century even as they preach of peace. I see no peace. I see no good coming of this next few decades. If the “Great Leaders” of this coming Century are as incompetent and arrogant as those of the last, the World is doomed to simply repeat the sins of the past.  There were be Great Leaders only because they take us into Great Wars.

Where are the visionaries?  Where is our Jesus?  Our Moses?  Our Gandhi?  Where are the leaders who not only preach peace but practice it?

Can the earth survive human war or human peace?  If we war on one another with our current technology, we may make this world uninhabitable.  If we do not war and continue “peaceably,” human being will reproduce in unsustainable numbers.

There seems to be no way out.  By War or Peace, humanity’s ignorance and lack of foresight endangers itself…ensures it’s fall.  Perhaps that is not a bad thing.

Middle East Culpability

wahhabi-idiot-terrorist
On the Middle East. Much of the violence in the Middle East can be directly traced to actions of outside interlopers since World War 1.

The Brits worked to place the Saudis in power after World War 1. America acted in concert with others to empower the House of Saud during and after World War II.

The Saudis are Wahhabis. The State Religion of Saudi Arabia is Wahhabist Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood is a Wahhabist Movement. Al Qaeda, al Jihad, ISIS and every other extremist Sunni Islamic organizations traces it’s origins to the Muslim Brotherhood and/or directly to the preachings of al Wahhab.

We created the beast which spawned the demons whom we fight in the War on Terror.

In the 50s, Kermit Roosevelt was sent by Ike and the Dulles Bros, at the behest of Britain and Anthony Eden, to depose Mossadegh who was Prime Minister of Iran. Mossadegh was deposed. The Shah was placed on the Peacock Throne of Iran by Kermit Roosevelt.

The Shah used his Savak to terrorize the people of Iran. He exiled Khomeini.

Carter weakened the Shah some 25 or 30 years later by speaking to Human Rights and withdrawing support.

Khomeini returns.

Khomeini and his revolution are the progenitors of all Shi’a extremism. Khomeini and his Iranian Revolutionary Guards created Hezbollah.

No Kermit, no Shah. No Shah, no Khomeini. No Khomeini, no IRG. No IRG, no Hezbollah.

Vietnam plays a role here as well. Prior to Vietnam (and Iran), the US was seen as a champion of the downtrodden and a revolutionary victor over Colonialism.

After Vietnam, we became a colonial oppressor.

Cuba plays a role here as well. We attempted to deny Cuba self determination.

The US is no longer a champion of the oppressed people’s of Colonialism by our own actions. Instead, we are merely actors for Big Banks and Big Corporations.

This is how we are seen, with great justification, by much of the world.

Much of the terrorism aimed at us is directly attributable to our support of dictators and despots throughout the Middle East and Asia.

ISIS, al Qaeda and other Islamic Organizations feel that in order to take power from the House of Saud and other despotic regimes that they must attack us. We are the primary support for the Saudis and other despots. We have supported nearly every Sunni despot extant.

We supported Saddam before we deposed him. We gave him his initial batch of nerve agents and gave him the means to develop more. Then we used possession of these as rationale for attacking him.

We did the same thing to Noriega. As long as he was our man, we turned a blind eye to his drug trafficking. As soon as he decided that he wanted to go his own way, we defamed him and attacked him. I’ve read widely that the CIA actually assisted in his drug trafficking and money laundering before we turned on him.

The Middle East is a mess partially because the West disbanded the Ottoman Empire, partially because of the idiot Sukes-Picot agreement, partially because of oil profits, and partially because of the Sunni-Shi’a divide.

America has always pushed a divide and conquer agenda on the Middle East.

Now, we complain that they are divided and can’t or won’t come together.

We’re hilarious.

If the Middle East were to come together as in the old days of the Qaliphate, does anyone think that they would do otherwise than what ISIS claims as a goal?

Saudi_Arabia_svg2

The Ottoman Empire crushed the first Islamic State (ISIS).FDR Gave It Life and Billions in Oil Revenue to Spread it’s Virus to All Corners of the Earth.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Grand Mufti of Egypt came out publicly against ISIS. Said that they are not of Islam.

When the Ottomans were in power, they blew up the Nejd when the Wahhabis first started trying to come out.

This Wahhabist nonsense that has turned Islam on it’s head is only about 250 years old. The problem is that it is the Saudi preferred Islam. Saudi Arabia has oil.

The first guy from the House of Saud to raise up and hold the Wahhabi flag was beheaded by the Ottomans. They waxed that idiot. They put down the rebellion. About 70 years passed and Egypt joined forces with Britain to put it down again.

It stayed down until Allenby let Lawrence raise the tribes in alliance to fight the Ottomans and then Britain half ass supported the nascent Saudi state. Saudi Arabia was born with Wahhabism as their national/official religion.

Then in WWII, that old senile FDR made Saudi Arabia a full ally of the West and started pumping dollars in there for oil exploration.

Suddenly, the Wahhabist were flush with dollars.

They put those dollars into spreading the very Islamic virus that the leaders of Islam had seen fit to put down. All the while, America and the West turned a blind eye…because OIL!

We did this to ourselves by allowing Saudi Arabia to become the richest oil producing nation on the planet. They took that money and spread their cancer.

Now, we ignore the root of the disease while vigorously fighting the symptoms.

Why? Because the leaders of the West are idiots…and our corporations are greedy.

They still make their money. They do not care about the chaos or the deaths of ordinary folks across the globe.

The greatest sin of America (or the West) is not racism or abu Ghraib or torture, rendition or My Lai. It is Saudi Arabia.

FDR & AMERICA CREATED THE ISLAMIC THREAT! We brought this Frankenstein to life. We are our greatest enemy.

FDR's other World War II Ally -- Josef Stalin. It seems that FDR mistakes will haunt us forever.

FDR’s other World War II Ally — Josef Stalin.
It seems that FDR mistakes will haunt us forever.

 

Let’s Pretend That the President or Party in Power Actually Matters.

disagree-and-fight

What person who has lived a life and made mistakes could run for office and win? Why would any sane person wish to have his or her personal life flayed and left open for the criticism of hypocrites.

While Clinton was being Impeached for sexing up the fat girl, it was revealed that Henry Hyde had had an affair in similar manner at the same age as Bill Clinton. When asked about it, Hyde responded something to the effect that it had occurred when he was a young man and didn’t know better.

I lost my appetite for many politicians…hell, for most politicians in the Clinton Era. They lied, schemed and generally did the opposite of that which was good for America in the name of party politics.

The only proof of corruption needed is to look at the Oil and Health Industries.

The American “health” industry is disgusting. It’s a death cult. Profit as much as possible from poor health and death. No one in the health industry are interested in saving lives. They’re only interested in profits. They’ll give you a pill for 500USD a month that could be had in Canada for 500CAD a year.

On one side, the market pushes you fat pills that crushes your health and on the other side, the market pushes “health” that crushes your finances. All pushed by a market and a government that wishes only to tax and spend us into oblivion.

The tech is here to move away from the petroleum industry that has sucked us into the Middle east and it’s interminable wars. Yet, in order for America to remain the global police, we push oil and refuse to reach for other energy tech. We export oil. Yet, somehow we find it wise to import oil from our enemies in the Gulf and countries such as Venezuela. How does this make sense.

We meddle and intervene everywhere using “terrorism” as an excuse to spread terror. How does this make sense? Saudi Arabia is the epicenter of terrorism. The Nejd is the origin of the ideas behind the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda, the taliban and every other extremist form of Islam excepting only the Iranians and their Hezbollah.

Yet, Saudi Arabia is our ally.

Most Muslim Extremists are either from the Nejd or were raised on the teachings of radicals in the Nejd.

Somehow, we can’t figure out that this is a problem. It’s as if there is some black liquid in our eyes with a lush green sheet acting as some kind of veil (or hijab not to be confused with Jihad!).

America has created it’s own enemies out of paranoia (N. Korea, Iran & Vietnam) or Imperialistic greed behaviors (Iran, Iraq, Russia, China, Somalia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, etc) for over half a century now.

We created the Khmer Rouge in the same manner that we created ISIS and helped to create the Taliban. We even assisted in the rise of Ho Chi Minh and Mao through our stupidity.

And pls don’t get me started on the early days of the Soviet Union and how we propped up Stalin so that he could fight Hitler.

Almost every problem we have today finds American finger prints in it’s DNA.

But let’s talk about Obama and how idiotic he is.

And let’s call anyone who makes such statements a “blame America firster.”

Our economy is based on banks who use US foreign policy to rape local economies and gamble constantly. They can afford these gambles because the Fed and the US Gov’t will bail them out as they have done since 1907. The American tax payer is nothing more than a battery compartment for Banking regeneration in a post-fail economic recovery. It has been this way since the turn of the century.

But, we’ll all pretend that the President or Party in power actually matters.

Did BushCo allow bin Laden to Succeed?

Recently, a question was asked:  “Do you really believe what you are saying or do you think FDR and Bush were begging and pleading for Japan and Bin Laden to attack us so we could enter a war? Seriously?”

On the question of Japan, undoubtedly FDR was courting an attack as justification for entering the War in Europa. Anyone who has read the history of the build up to World War II knows that FDR was looking for a way to get the American people on a war footing. Embargoes are a mother!

As for bin Laden. BushCo were strangely oblivious of bin Laden prior to 9-11. I do not put it past the Gov’t and especially one guided by the likes of Cheney and Rummy to allow an attack to occur so as to “lead” the nation to war.

Why did we NEED to go to Iraq? The answer is that we DID NOT. Yet, 9-11 and the GWOT were used as an excuse to take us into that war. They definitely “shaded the truth” to get the war that they wanted.

The Spanish American War was yet another contrived war as was the Mexican War and the Vietnam War. When one looks at the Korean War, it is a war into which we either secretly goaded North Korea or into which Truman simply blundered like a blind fool.

American spheres of influence were stated loudly to the World. South Korea lay JUUUUUUUSSSSSST outside of the line. Leading NK, China and the USSR to believe that we’d stand by and do nothing.

From the internet:

In June 1950, after Secretary of State Dean Acheson declared Korea to be outside of America’s sphere of influence, the North Koreans invaded South Korea and attempted to reunify the country under communist rule. President Truman immediately declared Korea a “global police action” and attempted to drive the North Koreans out of South Korea. In fact, the United States secret larger goal in the Korean war was to defeat North Korean communism and create a unified Korea under American domination and control. Korea was supposed to be the first major effort to rollback global communism. However, communist China, feeling threatened that aggressive American actions against North Korea would be followed by American attempts to undermine Chinese communism, entered the Korean war against the United States and its South Korean ally. The Korea war quickly proved to be a deadly stalemate between the United States and communist China. Only in 1953, after President Eisenhower secretly threatened to drop atomic bombs on China, did the Chinese agree to an end to the war, leaving North and South Korea divided just as they were at the beginning of the war.

The Korean war, as many American leader later said, seem to justify America’s global crusade against Soviet communism. It convinced many Americans of the truth of the United States governments warning that the Soviet were plotting to take over the world and impose communist domination over the free world. The Korean war would further justify American creation of the “nuclear umbrella” to shield the free world from Soviet expansion. As described by Secretary of State Dean Acheson in 1949, the nuclear umbrella was the American threat to wage nuclear war against the Soviet Union if the communists threatened any country in the free world. An attack on any member of the free world, thus, would be treated as an attack against the United States, which would lead America to wage nuclear war against the aggressor.

Also, Woodrow Wilson and Harry Truman: mission and power in American foreign policy By Anne Rice Pierce PG 248 (Google Books)

As well as the following:


After World War II, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. divided Korea into spheres of influence—the Soviets backed Communist-ruled North Korea and the U.S. backed the South Korean dictatorship. Both Koreas had threatened to invade the other. When U.S. Secretary of State Dean Acheson declared that South Korea was no longer part of the U.S. defense perimeter in Asia, the North invaded the South.

Do I think that a US President and/or the US Political and Military Leadership are capable of allowing an attack or incident to happen so as to lead us into war? Definitely.  It’s been done several times.

REMEMBER THE MAINE!

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR!

The Great War that few Americans Wanted

https://i1.wp.com/www.solarnavigator.net/history/explorers_history/Pearl_Harbor_USS_Arizona_ablaze.jpg

Europeans (and others) like to argue that Americas contributions to winning World War II were not as substantial as the Russians because the Russians lost so many men. What they don’t like to talk about is the tactics employed by the Russians. Sending five boys carrying one rifle between them straight forward into enemy machine guns. That’s going to produce a hell of a lot of casualties.

They also like to say that without Russia, the Allies would have lost. Germany would have won. Why? Because all of those Russian Divisions held busy 100 or so German Divisions. But who supplied all of those Russian Divisions who were fighting those 100 German Divisions?

America. That’s who. The US supplied thousands of Tanks and Trucks, Ammunition and Weapons to the Soviets.

All that and it wasn’t our war to begin with…

Roosevelt had to trick the American people into joining the War by allowing the Japanese to sink half the fleet at Pearl Harbor and then trumping the losses up as if it were a a crushing blow to our Navy. Amazing that those Aircraft Carriers were conveniently out of the way during the attack.

McCain wins Missouri!

Yeay!  Who cares?

Fox news ran this story constantly today.   Why?

And that blonde girl Natalie Holloway story is back.  I feel for the girls family but why is this national news.  A rich girl went to Aruba and was murdered because she couldn’t get enough of the bad boys who in this case kinda look like violent nerds from the black trench coat Columbine generation.

If this were an Asian chic who was barely making ends meet and got herself killed, would FOX run the story non-stop.  I don’t think so.

The real news is the economy.  But even there they go on and on and on.  Droning until you can’t take it anymore.  GM, Chrysler and Ford.  I own stock in Ford and I think that they will make it through all of this.  But if they can’t survive without a bail out, they should not survive.  Let them die.  They’ve refused to come to terms with the new world.  If they can’t do so, they deserve to die.  I’ve read that Ford is releasing a hybrid in Europe.  Why not release it in America?  Lots of people in America who are now hybrid friendly.  They should all three be jumping on the hydrogen bandwagon before they get left behind there as well.  I don’t know if the Unions should be busted or not.  But the Unions need to get out of the way of progress and let these companies adapt.  No one deserves a free ride.

Obama is saying the right things right now.  I’m on a wait and see pattern with Obama.  I don’t know if I can compare the guy to Lincoln or FDR just yet.  He’s done nothing.  But neither had LIncoln when he came to the the White House.

We’ll see.

I’m not committed to the Christian agenda.  So I am not as adamantly against him.  The gay agenda is silly to me.  But I have no dog in that fight.  Parents raise your children and give them your example to follow.  They’ll do the right thing.  Hedging your bets by railing against others isn’t going to keep your child from being gay.  I don’t know what will keep them from being gay but I’m certain that the gay marriage issue is not the thing that will prevent it.  Marriage is a joke approximately 50% of the time anyway.  Marriage protection act.  Sure.  I’m not buying it.  It’s the “Christian Abomination Act.”  Christians pushing their agenda one way and homosexuals pushing in the opposite direction.  Get out of each others way and live your lives as you see fit.  I’m tired of hearing both sides of this idiotic argument.

Don’t even get me started on abortion.

Make your own choices and live with them.  If you can’t live with them, stay home.

Allahu Akhbar!!!
