Mr President, the Less you do the Better

Washington DC – “We’ve got to stop ISIS… al-Qaida… Syria’sAssad… Hamas… Hezbollah… Taliban…

Shebab…the wicked Ruskis in Ukraine…those Yemeni Houthis…Iran…Sudan…Islamists in Libya and Mali…Boko Haram in Nigeria… the Red Chinese in Asia. Oh yes, and defend Latvia and fight the Lord’s Army in Uganda.

*** and ***

To quote Frederick the Great, “he who defends everything, defends nothing.” To which we may add, he who spends on wars everywhere, ends up broke. And he who ignores domestic needs for the sake of imperial glory abroad is cruising for a bruising.

The American Imperium can no longer enforce the international status quo that had given it immense power and wealth since 1945. The Hapsburg Emperor Charles V and poor Louis XVI faced the same problem.

*** and ***

As they say at the Betty Ford Clinic for drug and alcohol addicts, “just say no.” Or, if Americans really want more jolly little wars around the globe, then raise taxes to pay for them instead of hiding their cost in the national debt.

Americans now face two conflicts in places they can’t even find on the map.

*** end quote ***

From the movie WarGames (1983):  “A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?”

Maybe BHO44 was displaying a flash of unexpected brilliance when he blurted out “ … we don’t have a strategy …”?

At some point, “We, The Sheeple” must wake up and take charge of our Gooferment!

POLITICAL: The situation at the border IS a national disgrace

THE SHAME OF IT ALL
Posted on July 11, 2014 by keywestlou

*** begin quote ***

ABC News ran photographs on the internet yesterday of some of the children who have come over the border into Texas. The 52,000.

Here is what I saw.

Children sleeping on bathroom floors, in orderly fashion next to each other. More sleeping on shower floors. Not in orderly fashion. On top of each other in many instances. The floor in each room reported to be concrete. Nothing between the kids’ bodies and the concrete. Some standing crowded almost like sardines in what was described as a holding room.

The news report stated the areas where the children were held were fenced in by chain link and barbed wire. It was further reported that the children are only allowed 30 minutes outside each day to play.

ABC’s report further indicated that many of the children still appear dehydrated and hungry. The report also stated some of the children were sick and could not eat.

Is this how we treat children in the United States? Regardless of how they arrived here?

This is not a Republican/Democrat thing. This is a humanitarian crisis. Political differences and hatreds should be set aside. We are duty and conscience bound to react. To do the right thing. To be God like. To help the children.

*** end quote ***

The situation at the border IS a national disgrace.

Let’s not forget the reason this situation was created — politics.

The D’s figure to remake America into a Socialist Paradise by embarrassing the R’s in front of Hispanic voters. Add to that that all the illegal aliens will vote D is the cherry on the Sunday.

And it distracts from the bad economy, the foreign policy disasters, and the Obamacare disaster. Never mind concealing the IRS scandal and the VA débâcle.

As a Voluntaryist type of little L libertarian, America needs good people to come work and assimilate. The current immigration disaster is failure to have such policy.

A plague on all their houses for the mess that they have made.

POLITICAL: A very upsetting example

Illegal Alien With 7 Kids Got Food Stamps, Housing & Social Security – for 20 Years (Video)
by Top Right News on January 18, 2014 in amnesty, Border Security, Economy, GOP, Immigration, Obama, Politics

*** begin quote ***

Illegal alien and mother of seven, Florida resident Marita Nelson, receives $240 in food stamps, monthly medications, $700 in Social Security and a housing allowance.

And she has been receiving government assistance for over 20 YEARS – ever since she illegally entered the U.S. by swimming the Rio Grande.

*** end quote ***

If this is true, then The Sheeple are fools.

This is unacceptable!

Why should the producers subsidize the moochers?

POLITICAL: the “Bystander President” seems appropriate

‘BLINDSIDED’ PRESIDENT: OBAMA’S LOOSE GRIP ON THE REINS OF STATE
by SCOT KENDALL 1 Jan 2014 

*** begin quote ***

2013 was anything but a banner year for President Obama.

A peppering of failures and scandals marked the first year of the second term of the “most transparent administration in history.” These scandals came in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they all shared one prominent feature.

That is the amount of knowledge Obama claimed to have of them before they happened – none.

*** and ***

Let’s hope that 2014 sees the “blindsided” president (whom the GOP has called the “Bystander President”) learning from his mistakes and taking a more active role in the governance of his country and the doing of his job. As the year unfolds, we’ll all be keeping a close watch.

*** end quote ***

Seems appropriate.

How many time can he use the same excuse?

POLITICAL: Obamacare has more “surprises”

Obamacare’s Biggest Whopper
Betsy McCaughey | Jan 02, 2014

*** begin quote ***

But the nastiest truth about the health law is still to be exposed – the tightening hold the federal government will have over your doctor, even if you’re paying with private insurance. Obama said “you’re not going to have anybody getting in between you and your doctor in your decision making.” It was a lie from day one, just like the president’s other sales pitches.

*** end quote ***

Sarah Palin called it “death panels”.

You can believe that they will set “standards”!

Argh!

POLITICAL: GM $14 billion in taxpayer dollars

The Bailout
By Eric Peters

December 13, 2013

*** begin quote ***

In Washington, they always try to announce unpleasantness during the off-hours (weekends, holidays and such) so that – hopefully – the stink will be less noticed.

In Detroit, too.

The recent announcement of the accession of Mary Barra as the new CEO of General Motors just happened to be exactly coincident with the announcement that the federal government has divested itself of its remaining partial ownership of GM.

This is good news.

The bad news – according to the Center for Automotive Research – is that $14 billion in taxpayer dollars went up in smoke as a result of the government’s “investment” in GM.

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but that is just the bailout cost.

What about all the lawyers, productivity, and personal losses?

Frau Reinke lost 5k$+. Where does that get tallied?

And, the loss of market discipline.

Bailouts are addictive. And, immoral, ineffective, and inefficient!

Flirty Obama owes us an apology
By Andrea PeyserDecember 12, 2013 | 4:25am

*** begin quote ***

President Obama shares a laugh with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt as his wife, first lady Michelle Obama looks on during a memorial service for late South African President Nelson Mandela.

*** end quote ***

I don’t like to jump on things.

BUT … …

in this case FLOTUS’ expression says it all.

He’s a self-centered pig. Incapable of being taken seriously.

If I was at Old Abe’s funeral, I certainly wouldn’t hit on a hottie.

And, I have a low opinion of “Honest” Abe.

But he was “in the arena” and I wasn’t.

From that perspective, us Monday morning quarterbacks have to restrain our criticism.

It didn’t present the USA, whom he was representing, in a very good life.

-

I wonder who had him and FLOTUS change seats?

-

Laff.

Glad it wasn’t me being an A double Q.

Frau Reinke would have been a lot less forgiving.
