  • My View of Middle East from my experiences in the 70's

    “Sadly, unless we fight this war RIGHT NOW before they get too many more nukes and take out Pakistan FIRST, we lose.

    I’m not a pessimist, first they have the feeling that they are losing to Western influence.

    Second, in actual fact they are very fractured and often fight among themselves. They may make alliances with the basically distrust each other and this is a big weakness.

    One reason you see this growth in radicalism is a direct result of the present administration withdrawing from the regions. Where there is a vacuum something will fill it.

    We change who is running this country in the next election it is the first step towards minimizing radical Islam. There is no easy solution and cannot be done totally with military might so I see it is a long protracted war.

    Lastly, most people want to be left alone that’s true over there. Our job is to foster a strong middle-class in many of these third world countries and you’ll see a lessening of tension and the grip of these radicals over time. That of course is no easy task and could go into the next century.

    Pessimism is out for me but time will tell.

    Your absolutely right, think of it as religious statism, very hierarchical in nature one theme that I heard often when I was working in those countries was....... life is a test from God, you should not complain, be faithful and endure. God’s rewards comes in the afterlife for those who pass the test.

    That really does not fit the Western model and for many good Muslims they want to be left alone we live in difficult times.

    Islamic fascists see Western culture destroying a great religion decaying it from within, thus the war on the West.

    As a person that has spent three years in an out of Arab countries (1970's) that is the center of the present unrest I can say a few things with certainty. Without pointing political fingers you are seeing a very sophisticated radicalization process going on this process accomplishes two important objectives.

    First it helps radicalize local populations into believing that the West is working against them plus it puts enormous pressure on local populations to participate or be subject to scrutiny from fellow Muslims. Conformity is the rule within leadership of the Islamic Facist culture.

    Second it puts pressure on the West to shut down any freedom of speech that a government might construe as anti-Islamic in nature. I'm not saying Western countries will abide by this yet the temptation of appeasement will be there. Unfortunately we are seeing the rise of Islamic fascism that is extremely well structured and is not random. Anyone that tells you this is not a war is fooling themselves and you that's my view.

    My 32nd video on reelection slogan forward, personally tired of slogans and rhetoric. The problem is that they don't care, meaning Democratic Party. My little way of poking at stupidity. As always video takes a little license.

    You have to understand it’s that Northeastern corridor from Washington DC to Boston, I think it’s in the water even among some conservatives and Ann Coulter is affected.

    I thought it was funny she made Bill O’Reilly sound like a conservative that’s a laugh.

    I’m sure she’s not done talking and the show’s been over for well past an hour, I think she needs some help.

  • Gold Rush & Occupy Wall Street

    Gold Rush & Occupy Wall Street I have been following through blogs many postings About Occupied Wall Street crowd and come to the conclusion I cannot add much else from what other people have said.

    Yet something struck me the other night over the differences between 0WS and of all things Discovery Channel, program Gold Rush. I never really followed Gold Rush yet it comes on just before Air Alaska a program that I enjoy. 0WS is typical of the modern day loser, self-absorbed with their pity and the concept somehow the system is gamed them. They congregate and complain holding their iPhone’s and I Pads and generally being obnoxious. Most conservative people would look at this and say, get a life don’t be a pawn for the bigger players who are directing this, you’re just plain stupid.

    Now for the program Gold Rush get past the soap opera production aspects and you start seeing the true American spirit of entrepreneurialism by individuals. True Americans risking all at the chance to being wealthy and successful. The program is a great lesson in what’s great about America the young 16-year-old who’s trying to carry on his grandfather’s tradition of small-scale mining in the Alaskan wilderness. The hard crusted prospector who is taking all advantages of his knowledge and skills plus wit for his personal quest for gold has he moves in on the failures of the previous crew. The crew trying to learn all the ropes continually in trouble yet reached down inside within themselves to bring out a successful conclusion, my God this is America the beautiful. I personally would choose any one of them to be my neighbor over the rot gut politicians who enable the OWS misfits for political gains.

    Hats off to Discovery Channel for putting the American dream back in the front of our consciousness. We are indeed a great people that can do great things despite the whiners and the politicians who would enable them.

    So the video has two parts and the first part is my feeling toward all who have served or are serving in the present. The second part maybe a little rough around the edges yet I often think we should never forget who help and abetted our enemy’s. If you have no idea who Jane Fonda is, I suggest you Google or Bing search her name. NEVER FORGET

    Prediction 2012 Presidential Race

    As all political junkies, we are all following what’s going on in the Republican Party. Also the left’s attempt to do what the Tea Party did in 2010, with the Occupied Wall Street hypocrisy.

    We all know that the Democratic Party and its leftist sympathizers cannot stand on their accomplishments for they have been rejected by the right of center American people. What struck me last night in the debate between Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich was the fact that conservative viewpoint is on the ascendancy. People like Rush Limbaugh and others have finally made significant inroads in establishing a coherent right of center agenda. I strongly believe that the minions on the left know they are losing the war of ideas, for them it’s now or never kind of thinking.

    This gets me to my prediction for the 2012 race, Rush Limbaugh eluted to it several months back when he said the OWS crowd was rehearsing for next year. I believe all political events for the Republican party’s nominee in the 2012 election cycle will be dogged with violent protests based upon the OWS model. The purpose of this shenanigans is to disrupt the event, tamper down attendance participation by supporters and make the story about fat greedy capitalism. The lame stream media working as shills of the Democratic Party will wholeheartedly fall behind such a campaign. Campaigns on the Republican side will have to spend large sums of money protecting their candidates, from rule of the mob. This I believe is being orchestrated and put together by Axelrod and his cohorts. Revolution is the goal, destroying our founding fathers model and weaving hatred and discontent amongst different segments of our population.

    That’s my prediction I think it will fail if tried, more than ever I’m convinced that the left needs to destroy the process of election to impose a conformity of its ideals. Time will tell if what I’m saying is right but I’m putting it out there as a warning.

    I think you’re right
    not sure what to do, first be strong by being there for whoever the candidate is of the Republican Party. I look at OWS and say it has political protection from Democratic mayors and that won’t change between now and the 2012 election cycle. Look at poor old Oakland California, I think the mayor of Oakland should go down and throw bricks through the windows of the very companies that help pay her wages to show she is one of the protesters. If I was in the press I would ask her a question at one of her news conferences, Ms. Mayor why are you not down throwing bricks through windows since you are in agreement with the OWS here in Oakland. Yes we have a pathetic situation but again it’s desperation on the left side!

    Labor again is under the oppressive hand of big government. Sen. Murray your policies of wealth transfer are holding back many hundreds of thousands of jobs from being created by the private sector.

    Labor wants jobs not a program from Washington and least of all this president. I’m from Washington state and I see the wealth firsthand being sucked out of the private sector by you and your cronies.

    Get real, cut government spending, encourage the private sector and let’s get America growing once again. We need jobs not slogans.

    Just tired of the 1930s trash talk from your party.

    My friend, you caught one of the most interesting phenomena of lightning. We all see lightning coming from the sky to the ground, yet lightning as best as I can describe needs a path and the pathway always starts from the ground.

    So my friend you are a very lucky man or woman because that one did not complete and it was in your front yard. This is not uncommon, for pathways not the complete. If it had completed I would not want to be standing anywhere too close to it.

    Great pictures, and very rare camera picked of a pathway not completing, you are indeed fortunate. I’m sure there’s descriptions of the event that you caught, but it’s the best a layperson like myself can do. Absolutely Cool.
