This would be funny if it weren’t so desperately sad. Baraq is getting played like a cheap fiddle, which we all knew he would be.

There is no leadership in Washington and it’s all coming home to roost now.

You have an opinion, which means little or nothing to most people until they have a reason to respect it.

So many people people take themselves soooo seriously, and get upset when someone says something they don’t agree with.

Fortunately, rational discourse peeks around the corner occasionally and says “Hi!”


I'm sure you are a wonderful person, but this sounds exactly like the kind of arrogant crap that one of our modern academics might say. "If only those sorry plebeians were capable of my level of genius. But I persevere."

Travel. Education, formal and otherwise. A brutal career in Big Pharma. 25+ years of marriage.

All these things have taught me. Not the media or cranky, anonymous strangers.

I've spent my adult life bashing commie rat bastards
and I find myself wishing Putin would rip Obama's head
off his shoulders.

Obama proclaims America is no longer a Christian nation.
Putin proclaims Russia's Christianity.

Obama embraces gay marriage.
Putin condemns the gays.

It seems like we've traded places somehow.
If America becomes a socialist worker's paradise,
it is dead to me.

Xi Jinping of China is going to tell Obama the same thing that Putin is telling him... That China will give weapons to Syria if the US attacks.

Putin and Jinping may also loosen the leash on Kim Jung Un in North Korea, possibly getting him to launch another missile or detonate another nuke.

It’s really much simpler

the “newly elected” Syrian opposition leader is Ahmad Jabar-leader of tribe with affiliations in Saudi Arabia (all in the family)

The Syrian “civil war” has become a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Assad linked to Iran, chose...unwisely...especially if the Russians decide a new deal with the Saudis can be balanced with their interests in Iran

obowma’s outstanding chits to the Saudis (US debt and political support) have been called - or perhaps new ones have been issued

obowma the past few weeks became desperate to commit the US to the Saudi side in this proxy war. US military attacks funded by Saudi money.... what could possibly go wrong

Some of us “elderly kooky types” actually have seen the world. Perhaps not so much as you, oh great one, but we do have some degree of relative sophistication. Our years in this world quite possibly might give us a perspective that you don’t have, and won’t until you get to be our age.

You gave yourself away with the “W.” If that wasn’t enough, the listing of your degees and being a vegetarian in your about page.

Only a lib would fallaciously “feel” a listing of his degrees would be impressive.

“...When did older people become the object of scorn ...”

Right around the time of “Never Trust Anyone Over 30...” When our Marxist cultural revolution was already underway in the 60s and 70s.

Here’s a good read on it: “The Revolution Was”

Thanks for another look at the interfighting among the insane Muslims involved in Syria:

the “newly elected” Syrian opposition leader is Ahmad Jabar-leader of tribe with affiliations in Saudi Arabia (all in the family)

The Syrian “civil war” has become a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Assad linked to Iran, chose...unwisely...especially if the Russians decide a new deal with the Saudis can be balanced with their interests in Iran

obowma’s outstanding chits to the Saudis (US debt and political support) have been called - or perhaps new ones have been issued

"The Great Depression as it developed here was such an opportunity as might have been made to order. The economic distress was relative, which is to say that at the worst of it living in this country was better than living almost anywhere else in the world. The pain, nevertheless, was very acute; and much worse than any actual hurt was a nameless fear, a kind of active despair, that assumed the proportions of a national psychosis."

The Revolution Was
by Garet Garrett

**************************************

The above strikes me as similar to what we are currently facing in this country.

Someone posted today ( I can't remember his name) that he believed that obama was going to use WW3 to declare himself president/dictator for life. I could see that being his goal.

Look at what happened with FDR because of WW2. If he hadn't passed away, who knows what the end result would have been?

Then you would see Civil War part Deux. Without doubt.

FDR, love him or hate him, had the benefit of a united country behind him, bound together by common culture, and an implacable enemy in the form of Nazi Germany and the Imperial Japanese Empire.

This assclown does not. There are few people who believe there is anything in Syria worth the sacrifice of American youth.

When George W. was president, I remember him visiting Europe for either a G8 or G20 conference or some such thing.

On the television news at the time, they showed George W. walking behind Ms. Merkel....she was seated at a table.

When a smiling George W. walked behind Merkel, he reached over and briefly massaged her shoulders and then kept walking. Merkel turned around, and jokingly “put up her dukes” and pretended to fight off her “attacker.” She was smiling the whole time.

It looked like harmless banter between two friends, if this is the incident you are referring to. And the media mentioned nothing about the president being “drunk,” which I’m sure they would have harped on if it was true.
