Goodbye Barry - Welcome Home AMERICA!

I watched "The Interview" on 12/25 - SAVE YOUR MONEY! It didn't quite suck, but - at its best - I smiled several times at something I found clever. After all the hoopla surrounding this film, I didn't find anything really funny in Sony's "comedy". On a scale of 1-10 "The Interview" gets a miserable 3.5.

I feel sorry for those poor folks who stood in ridiculously long lines waiting to see this "comedy". The acting was acceptable - Seth Rogen and James Franco (and whoever played Kim) upheld their end of the bargain, and the concept was very good, but the execution of the comedy - with one or two exceptions that caused me to smile - pretty-much flatlined.

Apparently, there are those who disagree with me, as indicated in this excerpt from a news article - "An afternoon screening at the Van Nuys Regency Theatres in the city's San Fernando Valley was two-thirds full and drew a diverse crowd ranging from teens to senior citizens, who laughed loudly throughout at Rogen and Franco's antics."It was much better than I thought it would be," said Carlos Royal, 45, a professor." His statement indicates that professor's in California are easily amused by humor so long as it is presented at the grade-school level.

It's possible that I may have some heretofore unspecified "Asian blood" in my heritage, because the South Koreans seem to agree with my position. From the same article as above - "In Asia, online audiences seemed to find the movie tedious.
"There is no drama and not much fun," said a blogger in South Korea. "It's all about forced comedy that turns you off. Couldn't they have done a better job making this movie?"

TEDIOUS!! That's the word I as looking for! An hour and fifty two minutes of tedium. Rogen and Franco are capable of MUCH better. "The Interview" makes my list of MOVIES WELL WORTH MISSING!

Desiderata (Things Desired - "Welcome" in Latin)


Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.  As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.  Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.  But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection.  Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.  But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.  Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

 Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.  You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. 

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

This post is in response to a couple of inquiries from some friends in Facebook...

I "played" with a Ouija board a couple of times as a child, when I was around 12 years old (by the time I was 13, I found girls to be more interesting).  The few questions I posed to it garnered surprisingly accurate answers, when I verified them.  But, that was the kind of stuff kids did before there were video games and "personal computers". In my mid-teens, I had several extra-physical experiences - precognitive dreams (aka: déjà vu), a sighting of (what I call) a "sprit house" (possessing three dimensions [that's a long story all by itself], but had no physical presence) that was no longer on that site, and an OBE in my late twenties.

I joined the Navy eight days after my 17th birthday, experienced 13 weeks of Basic Training at USNTC Great Lakes, Illinois, where I was selected for training as a Radioman.  I was a part of a very large group called "Burke's Boys" - enlistees who are selected for a particular field in Basic Training, but who were assigned to general duty in the fleet for 6 months before attending that training.  My first ship was the USS Tidewater, a destroyer tender at NOB Norfolk, VA.  That was where I spent my time polishing brass in the passageways, chipping paint and repainting various parts of the ship, rebuilding electrical motors, and inventorying all sorts of things that were required aboard ship.

Radioman "Class A" School at Bainbridge NTC, Maryland, was my next assignment.  At Bainbridge we learned basic electronics, typing and International Morse Code.  I enjoyed being on dry land again, and this assignment (as I recall) lasted about 3 months.  Upon completion of the course, I was reassigned to the USS Mount McKinley, a Fleet Communications Command Ship as a Radioman.

About 3 months later (1967-68) the Mount Mac (as the crewmembers called her) got underway for a 6 month Mediterranean Cruise.  One of the guys on the ship had a Oiuja board, and pulled it out one day while we were crossing the Atlantic Ocean.  Those of us who weren't "on watch" thought it would be a fun way to break up the monotony, and another shipmate and I began playing with it.  A group of about six gathered around us to watch.

We both placed our hands upon the planchette (pointer), and it began slowly moving around the board (it didn't seem to have any discernable pattern to it's movements, the pointer just seemed to roam around the board as if it was familiarizing itself with the layout). After about a minute, the pointer made a couple of big, quick, sweeping movements around the board, like it was comfortable with the board and ready to "do it's thing". It paused with the viewer over the letter "H", then moved to "U", then "R" and "T", and then paused for maybe 10 seconds. Okay… HURT. It then moved again, this time pausing momentarily on "P", then on "A", then "I" and "N". We now had HURT and PAIN… and we stared at each other blankly, each shrugging indication it had no meaning. So far, the message meant nothing to either of us. After another 8-10 second pause, the pointer moved and paused on the "V", and then moved to "I", and took then another long break.

We decided to try it again, and asked the board "Who are we communicating with?" "V" and "I" was the response, spelling "Vi". At that point I asked the guy on the other side of the board if he knew anybody named Virginia, Violet, Virgil or Vincent.  He didn't… but, one of the people watching blurted, "I DO!".  I turned my head to look at him… his face was drained of all color, and his pupils were the size of saucers! And then he told us his story…

His family lived on a working farm, with all the usual animals, crops and farming equipment.  The tools and equipment were all kept in the barn when they weren't in use, and the fuel for the equipment (tractor, etc.) was stored in a large old drum outside of the barn.  The drum had a slight leak around the valve, of which the family was aware. He said his younger sister (named Violet but called "Vi"), was playing around the old drum one day… with matches (that nobody in the family had any idea she had found), when the fuel ignited and extinguished her young life. On that day, I became a believer that the word "impossible" no longer had much practical meaning.  It had been demonstrated, to my satisfaction that there was a potential power by unseen forces to - under the right conditions - reach out from the afterlife.


I know that - for myself - when I read something like this, I am almost immediately tempted to try it. Ouija requires no particular skill, no physical prowess, and can be navigated by even borderline idiots.  I would caution everyone who reads this - DO NOT run out to buy a Ouija "game".  Keep in mind that - as in the physical world - there are benevolent, neutral, and evil presences in the realm of "restless spirits".  The operators of the Ouija DO NOT get to pick and choose which type of "spirit" comes through the thin veil that separates the realm of our physical world from that of the non-physical world.  We were fortunate, in that this was a neutral spirit which was reaching out to one of our observers. There was no indication of malevolence in this instance.  I am not selling Ouija Boards, nor do I hold any stock in Parker Brothers… I am simply reporting a personal experience, and specifically NOT recommending anyone interact with a Ouija!  It's one of those "You pays your money, and you  takes your chances." things.  Personally, I have not touched a Ouija since that experience of over 50 years ago (but I also know that people will do what people will do). Should you choose to ignore my warning, I wish you the best of luck and safety. As a curious aside, I must note that Parker Brothers is located in SALEM, MA - "witch-hunt" headquarters in the time of the Pilgrim.

Are you enjoying the LOWEST gasoline prices in 5+ years ($2.399 at Sam's Club today)? Wondering how they came to be so low all of a sudden? Well, enjoy it while you can… here's the bad news.

OPEC recently lowered their price per barrel from $100+ to $65.33. That was nice of them, wasn't it? Maybe, maybe not.  There are two things driving the price down -
1.      Reduced demand, and
2.      "Fracking" (fracturing) in the USA

Now, think about this - you are OPEC and you have about half the money in the world to work with. Your production costs (I'm just guessing here, impossible to find online) run $15-$20 per barrel, and you're selling it to the world at $100+ per barrel. Half-way around the world, U.S. companies begin fracturing oil shale - "Fracking" - and are retrieving oil at a production cost per barrel of $70. Also, understand that the fracking business began with several trillions of dollars of indebtedness to stock and bond holders.

How do you - as OPEC - maintain control of the market for the long run? By lowering the cost of your oil to 93% of the production cost of the upstart's oil. You're still gaining over 200% above the cost of production, and simultaneously driving the competition out of business. You (OPEC) can afford to do that until the frackers collapse under the weight of their debt. When that happens, you (OPEC) push the price up to $150 per barrel overnight.

The window of rejoicing WILL be limited - limited by how long the frackers can keep their collective head above water. According to published studies, we have approximately 3X the oil in western North Dakota's Bakken oil fields than all the OPEC countries combined!  I'm hoping that if things get "dicey", there will be a bailout by our government of an industry that is truly DESERVING of assistance.  In the long term, we WILL benefit from a bailout of fracking by becoming "energy independent" of imported fossil fuel. Which is precisely why the CURRENT administration won't permit it.

North Dakota Names Landfill after Obama

The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama.

In an overwhelming 35-10 vote, the state Senate advanced a bill naming a 650-acre site currently under construction after the nation’s 44th president. Governor Jack Dalrymple is expected to sign the measure into law Tuesday.

When completed, the Barack Obama Memorial Landfill will be the largest waste disposal site in North Dakota, and the 17th largest in the United States. It will be especially rich in toxic waste from the local petroleum and medical industries.

“We wanted to do something to honor the president,” says Republican State Senator Doug Perlman, who was the lead sponsor of the bill. “And I think a pile of garbage is a fitting tribute to Obama’s presidency."

“We originally planned on naming it after a nearby mountain. But then someone jokingly suggested we name it after Obama. I never thought and idea like that would actually pass. But I was pleasantly surprised.”

The president is hardly popular in North Dakota (or anywhere else in the world). The most recent poll in December 2013 found that Obama has a 35% approval rating in the state, although that figure may have fallen further in the year since. Yet even considering the political climate, seasoned observers are surprised that two Democratic lawmakers voted for the bill’s passage.

“I supported Obama because I thought he would end the wars in the Middle East;” says Allison Mitchell, a progressive Democrat from Grand Forks. “But he decided to fight new wars abroad instead of fighting for single-payer health care and jobs here at home.  I guess people expected me to oppose this landfill thing because I’m a Democrat. But honestly I don’t really care anymore. Maybe this small act of protest will wake him up.”

Ordinary citizens in the state also seem to approve of the government’s choice. “I can’t think of a better name,” says Joe Blough, a plumber from Minot. “It’s darkly colored and it's full of shit. That pretty much sums up Obama.”

I believe that rather than the GOP actually "winning" the mid-terms, the Democrats "lost" the mid-terms because of Obama's so-called "policies". Many - if not MOST - of those policies were the antithesis of what the people really wanted... including those who previously supported Obama. Even the "party faithful" could no longer bring themselves to blindly support the radical left's agenda, and rather than cast a ballot for a Republican candidate, they simply didn't go to the polls on November 4th. Obama's pledge to unilaterally bring about unwanted and unneeded changes in "immigration reform" (amnesty) was undoubtedly a BIG factor.
Another factor was his administrations failure to tighten border controls and enforce our existing immigration laws. It is quite possible that this cavalier attitude toward immigration control has permitted hundreds (according to some reports) of Islamic terrorists to enter our country EACH DAY without detection. The primary goal of the "Anointed One" is to do as much irreparable damage to our country as he possibly can in the next 27 months. He sees his actions as a fitting punishment for what he sees as our "crimes" against his people... for which he gets an "Amen" from his appointed anti-American Cabinet members.
Obama - and his remaining supporters - also seem to believe that raising the "minimum wage" to $10.10 per hour, will fix the disparity between entry-level wages and the wages earned by the trained and experienced workers. What it WILL do is severely reduce the number of available entry-level jobs, increase unemployment, and elevate the cost of goods and services. This will cause those without work experience to suffer from the competition created by hundreds of applicants for every job available. The experienced employees who were making $10 per hour will then be asking for $15 per hour, and so forth on up the line.
That "Big Mac" will cost us $8, and the drinks will be $3. That electrician or plumber you need to call, will be asking $125 per hour for his time. Coffee will jump from about $4 per pound to $6 per pound. The bottom line, is that employers WILL NOT eat the increased costs of doing business - they WILL PASS IT ALONG TO THE CONSUMERS!

Where they can, jobs will be replaced by machines... machines that will do the repetitive work more efficiently and more accurately, with no paid vacations, sick days or other benefits. All analysis, planning, scheduling and most management functions will be done by computers.
Who then, WILL benefit from bumping up the minimum wage? Our government will, since entry-level workers will not only get a big pay increase, they will also be able to enjoy moving up several tax brackets, which will probably negate any real pay increase. China and the third world countries will benefit, because the only things that working/retired Americans will be able to afford will come from those countries. They may not be particularly well-made, but they will be affordable... unless the bottom drops out of the US$. This is very likely inasmuch as our government continues to print "fiat currency" as if there was something behind it.

Meanwhile, the Chinese continue to press for adoption of the Yuan to replace the US$ as the world's "reserve currency", which is used in international commerce. CNBC reports: "The tightly controlled Chinese Yuan will eventually supersede the dollar as the top international reserve currency, according to a new poll of institutional investors." What will happen to the crippled US dollar then? Possibly the same thing that happened to the Zimbabwean dollar several years back - an inflation rate of 200%-1000% per day, and a loaf of bread at inflation's peak cost $Z1,000,000.
Only fiscal and social conservatism can reverse the decline of the United States of America. The question is, does the Republican majority in Congress have the courage to make the hard decisions, or will the GOP remain a pale reflection of the DemonRats?
That's my 2¢ worth...

The Denver Post is a very liberal paper, and I'm surprised they published this. This really shows how the hiring of illegals is a false economic practice. (Fair Use applies)
Tina Griego is a Free-Lance reporter for the Denver Post. She writes some really good stuff and she is a strong advocate for LEGAL immigration .... Homework on issues is part of her make-up and fabric
What if they left?
Somebody really did their homework on this one. Best on the subject to present date.
What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?
I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican Visitor's Lament."
I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, "Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?"
"Hmmm", I thought, "what would happen?"
So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I found below.
It's a good question... it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers I found may surprise you!
In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.
In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back "home," mostly to Mexico. That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.
Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.
Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado. Denver's 4% unem ployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.
In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.
In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.
If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home,' the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.
No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.
We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.
In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the '18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!
Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!
America's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America 's economy which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt. $8.7 trillion debt!!!
At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act. Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country - brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.
Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.
Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego, California, in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.
The New York Times reported them to be America's new 'Third World' inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonials. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)
By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico. We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally annually, more than all other countries combined. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.
It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.
Interesting statistics!
Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that's billion with a 'B')
3. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English!
5. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars 'PER DAY' is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That's $1.2 Billion a year.
7. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
8. $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.
11. During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens  from other terrorist countries. It is estimated that over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.
12. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!
The total cost of these crimes is a whopping $538.3 BILLION A YEAR!
If our government's inaction on this issue doesn't disturb you, you're either a bleeding-heart left-wing liberal, or just plain stupid.

Clinton document dump details info on Monica Lewinsky, Whitewater, Vince Foster

This following, is what I think is an interesting discussion of an online Washington Times article between myself and another person who appears to be quite politically naive...

Of all the things that happened during the Clinton administration, I would love to know if Vince Foster was ASSISTED in his "suicide".
Yeh, someone took his own pistol, out of his own safe, in his own house, and then shot him. Right.
In the political world there are many "strange happenings" that seem to be borderline impossible to most people. In general, I try to not dismiss anything as "impossible", but it becomes most difficult do when powerful politicians and political networking are involved. Acts such as you describe have been done before and labeled "suicide", even in the "civilian" population. Hillary would not dirty her own hands... she would dispatch a minion.
Everything you say is true. However, I think it is a stretch that Ms. Clinton stole the man's pistol, killed him, and moved the body. And if you say she had help, that would mean a bunch of people know, and they would have had tremendous power over her. She may be many things, but she is not stupid.
Mr. Foster had been suffering from depression for quite some time.
Foster was involved in an investigation of the Clinton's finances, and reportedly made a phone call to Hillary Clinton, in Los Angeles, just hours before his death.  Recently, the signed report of M.E. Dr. Donald Haut was uncovered at the National Archives, proving that Foster had a previously unreported gunshot wound to his neck. (I wonder why it wasn't all over the news?)  Finally, an FBI memo has surfaced dated the day after the date of the official autopsy, in which the autopsy technician informs the FBI that there was NO exit wound.The "suicide" note, (leaked despite official efforts to keep it from view) has since been revealed to be a forgery. Have you ever seen the list of people associated with the Clinton administration who died of something other than natural causes? It includes roughly 25 people.
Yes, I've seen all this before. Two different Independent Councils--one being Ken Starr--conducted investigations that concluded that it was suicide. In addition to police investigations, both a House and a Senate committee were convened to investigate. They determined that it was suicide.
I imagine all this will be brought up again during the 2016 election, and I doubt if anyone's mind will be changed.
In a political hierarchy, the outcome of an "investigation" is predetermined by what the level directly above desires that outcome to be. Each subordinate level facilitates fulfilling the desires of the top level. You seem to repeatedly forget that we're talking about POLITICIANS, not "normal" people. These are people with various and sundry "resources" that would boggle our minds! These are networks within networks, in which connections are layered and people have "hooks" into others... some of whom are unsavory (to put it nicely). "Independent" counsels are independent only insofar as no DIRECT connection can be made between them and the subject of the investigation. It does NOT mean they cannot be intimidated, swayed, coerced or corrupted by the words/deeds of a third-party.
 I admire - to some degree - your political naivete. You apparently believe that people are inherently good, as once did I... many years ago. I sitll believe that many (if not most) people are inherently good. But, when evil threatens to do harm to good, in a manner both effective and virtually undetectable, good will unfailingly return to it's seat. There are few human beings who are uncorruptible, particularly those who have climbed the ladder of political success, because they UNDERSTAND what the people above them can have done to them and theirs.
In case you were wondering, I do love my country... but I do not have full faith and confidence in those who are navigating our "Ship of State"! That ship's name is the Titanic!

The world just seems to be a bit - like GLACIALLY - slow to recognize that fact!  Islam has declared WAR on the entire world with it's pronouncement of killing all those who are not with them, in order to establish their new "World Caliphate".  Just because a country has not declared a war, doesn't mean they should ignore a siege condition when it is brought to them.  The approach being used by "radical" Islam is the same one used to boil a frog - raise the temperature slowly or he will jump from the pot.  Chip away here and there, initially staying within your own geographical confines to minimize the outsiders concern over your growth.  As their successes continue they will be emboldened to send small groups of "agents provocateur", to other locations around the world, with the goal of creating isolated incidents of disruption and destruction - again, in the hopes of creating losses without suffering losses.

Notice that when I referred to radical Islam above, I put the word radical within quotation marks.  The reason for the added emphasis is that the blame has been placed upon a nondescript group of Muslim worshipers, whose aim is to take over the world.  If they are just "radicals", why has not mainstream Islam become outraged over the radicals perversion of "Allah's" word, and excommunicated (or whatever the Muslim version of excommunication may be) them from the religion?  Why has "mainstream Islam" not taken up arms against them?  Possibly because the cowardly radicals of Islam, hide themselves within the civilian population.  They wear no distinctive uniform, they represent to state or nation other than the "nation" of Islam.  It is virtually impossible to identify an enemy who blends in with the civilian population, hence the "scorched Earth" military philosophy.  Scorched Earth does not differentiate between enemy and civilian.  The essence of "scorched Earth", is that anyone not to the rear of a military force is a potential enemy, and will sacrifice their life at the least sign of resistance/non-compliance.  Unfortunately, "scorched Earth" creates a very large amount of "collateral damage", but it is the most effective means of neutralizing an enemy, while  minimizing one's own personnel losses.

The question is, "Who is willing to recognize the war that has been declared, and is willing to do what must be done in order to prevail?"  What nation, or group of nations, is willing to be labeled the "bad guy" by much of the world?  To permit the continuation of terrorism - in the name of Political Correctness - is to insure the establishment of their World Caliphate, and the defeat of freedom-loving people everywhere!  That's my 2¢ worth.

Jeh Johnson: Amnesty Will Cause Terrorists to ‘Come Forward’ and Submit Background Checks

Jeh Johnson doesn't have a CLUE about security, yet he is the Secretary of Homeland Security.  Just one more shining example of the appalling ignorance running rampant in the "Executve Branch" of our government.   Obozo has done everything he can to insure that the America we know and love becomes a skeleton of what it had been in the past.

I HOPE this CHANGE is something we can reverse, and the only thing "transparent" about his administration is that he is taking revenge upon We the People for something that was ended 151 years ago - by Abe Lincoln, on January 1, 1863.
Obozo continues to follow the (manu)scripts prepared by neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky (Rules for Radicals), and the combined efforts of Richard Cloward and Frances Piven (Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis) which seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer and Hillary Clinton mentor Saul Alinsky. Alinsky's approach was dark genius; "Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one."
The Cloward-Piven Strategy took it one step further by instructing young socialists to, "...hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse."

So, here we are today... with a seemingly never-ending string of CRISES, and an ECONOMY that is teetering on the brink of BANKRUPTCY. Of course, the left will blame it all on Bush the Younger, and a Congress in which the Republicans/Conservative have created stumbling blocks that cannot be overcome. This would be done in an attempt to justify and legitimize the improper use of Executive Orders by Obozo... our first undocumented president. Legitimacy aside, there is little question that our "Ship of State" is crewed by an agglomeration of idiots, and that ship is named HMS TITANIC!

 God save us from the stupidity of ignorant, one-issue American voters! Jeh Johnson could well-be the poster child for "Ineptitude of Government Officials"... and, that's my 2¢!

Our Government's Focus In the "War on Terrorism" Is Americans...

Would you like to know where our government is putting it's emphasis on terrorism? Right here in the USA... but the focus is upon US! Here's an excerpt from WND:
"(Attorney General Eric) Holder believed, said Chumley, “America’s biggest threat is Americans with guns – not ISIS terrorists with a stated goal of spreading the caliphate throughout the world.”

“And that’s why ISIS continues to spread, and will continue to spread,” she said.

WND reported last week a case against an alleged Muslim terrorist who reportedly described his brutal killing of New Jersey teen Brendan Tevlin “for being American” as a “just kill.”

“It was, in fact, an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” said radio host Todd Pettengill of “The Todd Show” on WPLJ in New York City.

He recounted the declaration by the suspect, Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, that the June 25 attack was a “just kill.”

“Domestic terrorism, no matter what the president says, is already here,” he warned.

During the first few weeks of his presidency, Obama spotlighted what he saw as a serious “right-wing” threat."

The "right-wing" is, of course, American patriots who believe in our Constitution's Bill of Rights, and hold in disdain those who attempt to thwart the intent of that document. For more details on the WND report, go to: 
That's my 2¢ worth!

Representative Mo Brooks Claims Discriminating Against Whites Is Legal...

Representative Mo Brooks (R- Ala) recently said, "If you look at current federal law, there is only one skin color that you can lawfully discriminate against. That’s Caucasians — whites."

As I see things, it's not so much that we can legally be discriminated against, it is that ALL OTHERS have been put into a legally PROTECTED CLASS in which whites and Christians were intentionally not included. The law does NOT say, "It's legal to discriminate against white people", it just doesn't give whites the special protections that "minority groups" enjoy. This arrangement ignorantly presupposes that whites are the only race that improperly discriminates against others.

Discrimination is a product of prejudice, and prejudice is a LEARNED behavior - there is no innate "dislike of the unlike". People are not BORN instinctively 'hating' ANYBODY for any reason... they acquire their dislikes from interactions with others. Some prejudices are inherited, much as physical characteristics are inherited. The "authority figures" in one's life, have great influence upon the nurturing development of one's personality and character.

If Dad and/or Mom have a strong dislike of people of color, that dislike will be taught - unthinkingly, subliminally, or intentionally - to the child. But, our "authority figures" range far afield - teachers, clergy, peers and the extended family, compose those who influence our development. If the hate mantra is repeated often enough by many (or most) of those figures it becomes ingrained, because the expression of identical feelings are reinforced by praise and recognition from those we consider "important" in our life. Such 'learning' is not entirely inherited, some is based upon personal interactions and negative experiences... BUT, the background of prejudices expressed by others, does make one hyper-vigilant when dealing with those who are 'different'.
The "bottom line", however, is that when there are SPECIAL PROTECTIONS put in place for SOME, there is no longer "EQUAL PROTECTION UNDER THE LAW" as established by the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Equal Protection Clause was implemented to ensure the fair treatment of ALL legal citizens of the United States. That's my 2¢ worth...

Understanding Obama's Actions... from MY Perspective

It seems that many people either don't understand Oblamer's background and training, and automatically assume that he is "stupid". First of all he was ostensibly "elected" to the office by a majority of voters, and with the blessings of the Electoral College. This says more about the ignorance of our voters than it does about Oblamer. It also assumes that the election was FAIR, and that those 100% Obama precincts in various parts of the country, were NOT an indication of voter fraud or systemic corruption. Two really BIG assumptions!

Oblamer, as are we all, is a product of both nurture and nature. He was raised in a family of Communist/Socialist/Marxists. His father was an anti-western Muslim, and Oblamer attended Muslim schools during his formative years. He was mentored by the likes of Jeremiah Wright and Frank Marshall Davis (anti-white, anti-American Communist). The anti-white, anti-American, anti-western, anti-capitalist authority figures continued through his higher education, as well. These included professor Edward Said at Columbia, a spokesman for Palestinian terrorists, and professor Derrick Bell at the Harvard Law School. Bell was an advocate of “critical race theory” — an uncritical mishmash of notions by a man who said that he saw his role as deliberately annoying white people. When he entered politics, he was embraced by William Ayers - a domestic terrorist who planted bombs in public places, including the Pentagon. Ayers hosted fundraisers for Oblamer.

A critical look at his background makes it crystal clear that what many, if not MOST people see as mistakes and failed policies, are actually SUCCESSES to Oblamer. Each 'error' is carefully crafted based upon what is a foreign ideology to most Americans. His goal is to embarrass us internationally and destroy our economy, reducing the United States to the poverty level of some third-world, Banana Republic... like his birthplace of Kenya!

Oblamer is a charlatan, a conman, a snake-oil salesman... or, in a single word, a POLITICIAN. He is also so successful in pulling off those scams, he has become the consummate usurper. Unfortunately, he is also a hardwired Communist/Socialist/Marxist Muslim, who lied his way into the most powerful office in the free world, and is now busying himself with destroying that FREE WORLD. That's my 2¢ worth...

According to "Survival Joe" there are ten thing we have learned from the Bundy Ranch standoff in Nevada.  I can find nothing in his list with which to take issue, so for those of you who have not seen it, here it is (Fair Use applies):
"Here are 10 things we’ve learned from the Bundy Ranch standoff so far:
#1. The federal government has absolutely no respect for state rights.
#2. If we are to believe the BLM, they care more about the “rights” of desert tortoises than the rights of human beings.
#3. Force is the only language the BLM knows how to speak. This bureau is just as bad as any other power-tripping government agency, of which there are many: CIA, FBI, NSA, NEA, EPA, ATF, FDA, etc.
#4. Nevada Senator Harry Reid is perhaps the greediest and most corrupt politician in Washington. (Actually, we already knew that, but this just reinforces it.)
#5. All those Nevadans who have positions of authority in the government (Governor Brian Sandoval, Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, cCounty Commissioner Tom Collins, etc.) are either complicit with the federal government’s attempt to steal the Bundy’s cattle or they are too scared to do anything about it.
#6. Whenever the government offers justification for the use of force, there is always a stated reason — the pretext — and then there is the real reason, which usually has to do with profits and power. In the case of the BLM’s cattle-grab, the pretext was to protect the desert tortoise. The real reason was to build a solar farm.
#7. When Americans show up in numbers to oppose illegal government action, the Feds back down.
#8. The Feds have no problem spilling American blood on foreign soil (using drone strikes), but are not yet ready to openly spill American blood on American soil. (As “Phil Dirt” pointed out in the comments, the federal government has killed Americans on American soil — David Koresh and his followers being the most obvious example — but it has always been done under some kind of pretense.)
#9. If something like this can happen in Nevada, it can happen in any of the other 49 states.
#10. There is no limit to what the federal government will do to strip states of their sovereignty and further enslave the American people."
Any questions?

GOP Establishment Secretly Pining for Mitt Romney in 2016?

Unfortunately, Mitt Romney is not a strong conservative candidate, and conservative VOTERS tend to follow their own personal convictions when they vote. Romney is not tremendously popular among grassroots Republican, either. On the other hand, Hillary IS a strong Democrat candidate. She is well-liked within the party, simply because the Dems will support their own... regardless of their lack of qualifications (as was demonstrated in 2008 and 2012).

Romney lost his first bid to become POTUS for several reasons, not the least of which is: Republicans and conservatives need AT LEAST a quasi-valid reason to vote for a candidate! Put a "D" behind Vladimir Putin's name, appoint Satan HIMSELF as his campaign manager, and the Dem's WILL vote for him!

Please don't misunderstand... I don't classify Mitt Romney as a "bad guy". Unfortunately that is another reason for his failed campaign. He is TOO NICE... too much of a gentleman to "roll around in the mud" with his opponent! Romney stays on the high ground and takes the shots, while his opponent takes cover behind trees and in the trenches, and snipes at him.

There is also the religious issue to be overcome. Many people misunderstand the LDS/"Mormon" religion, and do not see it as a qualifying "Christian" religion. The "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" has been wrongly classified as a "cult religion" because their method of worship and their internal rituals are somewhat foreign to mainstream Christianity.

People whose sense of honor is stronger than their sense of survival, rarely do well in politics - especially at the national level. They are ill-prepared to face the street-fighters ensconced within the walls and halls of the Capitol Building.

Romney needs to train like Rocky Balboa, but he seems to lack that "Rocky" hunger. He gave the subconscious impression that he didn't really care if he won the most prestigious office on planet Earth. He does not radiate the strength of character that conservative voters desire in a candidate, even though he does seem to possess that quality.

I'm afraid that if Mitt is the best candidate they have, the GOP - and the USA - will lose once again. Being the best person is NOT the same as being the BEST CANDIDATE! And that's my 2¢ worth.
