hobo jungle drums warning USA
be careful of bad ju ju! the hobo czar may have to find a job, since Obama will eliminate the office of hobo relations. we're on our own! that's nothing new?!
My favorite Halloween movie is Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. Saw this classic 10 years after it came out. Going out with my pals as 3rd graders was a major event of our year! Setting up some tricks, and a loot bag for some treats took preparation and planning! We went out after dark as hordes of children pestering and visiting apartments and houses.
Our children and college students are experts on zombie killing, and don’t watch my favorite movie. There was a time when we did like to get scared, but not enter some zombie culture college courses? The truth is stranger than the fiction of movies. It would not seem normal or healthy to be living in a zombie make believe world most of the year! It’s a free country, but I am concerned that we have too many people choosing a life of diminished mental capacity now.
Commercial news media are forcing everyone to endure endless marathon of Ebola “news” that keep repeating over and over. I do expect to see kids wearing plastic garbage bag outfits as hazardous material clothes. The Ebola trick or treaters will surely be on the evening news everywhere! The new political hack Ebola Czar should be out walking with the kids on Halloween. A lawyer that is a politician is now our medical expert on epidemics and virus infections? That is scary!
She looks like Dr. Strangelove in a creepy sort of way. What was going on in her basement? When she was Secretary of State it seems her top aides were busy sorting out documents about Benghazi in the bowels of the State Department basement. Their mission was to save “the 7th floor” which is her floor with top aides. Saturday morning staff ordered into hiding evidence from Inspector General and Congress is just another day for Hillary.
Ambassador Stevens is not the first person to die due to association with the Clinton curse. Dead men tell no tales. There was that suicide years ago, but that’s ancient history and what difference does it make?
Hillary does have a unique filing system! There were billing records from her law firm that suddenly just appeared in the White House residence, 9 years after a subpoena. There were documents that just showed up in a auto salvage yard in the trunk of a car in Arkansas. She has no records on her making $1,000,000 on a $200 investment in hog bellies futures a while ago.
Best guess is the Benghazi investigators need to head back to Arkansas to that salvage yard in Arkansas for her State Department documents. It seems that FELONY danger may force another Clinton associate to commit “suicide”? Strongly suggest that Raymond Maxwell stay with friends so he doesn’t suddenly show up as victim of suicide.
Hillary has definitely skill at being naughty. Anybody care to remember “travelgate” for her kicking out the travel service group to be replaced by a hand picked travel agency? So her direct orders to Maxwell to get rid of evidence seems like the good old days back in Arkansas. Except the federal government is not like Arkansas under Slick Willy.
Saw her wearing an orange pant suit. She may be wearing orange a lot in the jail house.
On September 10, 2014 our President made a speech that declares “War”? Our Secretary of State Kerry said we are not fighting a war. This is only a counter terrorism process. The military are called upon using the weapons of warfare. The military are facing criminals bound for civil court? Or are the military facing an army declaring a war to kill us?
To make it clear, our President explained carefully that ISIL is not associated with Islam religion. He did not explain the definition of ISIL in his speech. ISIL stands for Islamic State In Levant. We are dealing with terrorists too dumb to know they are not Islamic? Levant is a term referring to a territory known for centuries as portions of Cyprus, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey. So no worries, we aren’t fighting a war against Islamic terrorists out to kill us. How many of these folks are Protestants, Jewish, Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Baptists or Amish?
Our fearless leader is restricting our military to using only rockets and bombs. People might be surprised that even targeted rockets and bombs do kill anybody in the blast zone. Babies, children, moms, dads and ISIL soldiers will be blown up and incinerated by our use of these “precision targeted weapons”. War is hell. To save lives in the USA we did firebomb Dresden Germany burning up thousands of families living in the industrial area of weapons factories. We did blow up Hiroshima and Nagasaki to make sure Japan surrendered.
War is brutal and ugly. Do you want your family to die or do you choose to maybe kill innocent families to force a surrender? General Grant used brutal means to end the Civil War. A never ending war will kill millions over decades. A war that is won will kill many, but not millions. I do not want our military to get killed without getting a surrender by ISIL or destruction of ISIL army.
Our president has never listened to war experienced generals. He has surrounded himself with Xbox players with PHD’s and is playing word games. These are not war games. This is life or death war.
How would you like to park your ass in the throne chair of our fearless leader? How about hosting a press conference where you can tell everyone off a teleprompter baloney!? “I didn’t know about it, until you did!” “I don’t have a strategy yet!” “Not even a smidgen of wrong doing in IRS!” “I won’t put the cart before the horse!”
Play par 3 golf from the lady tees. Eat chili dogs in a diner and talk to unemployed people that you feel sorry for them. Sing karaoke! Hop onto a private jet, if you got $50,000 to use it. Or just look at a cardboard cut out with your head stuck out the window! Play doctor wearing a lab coat and latex gloves!
And if you are up to the challenge, enjoy the “Fund Raising” ride! Just as you are about to start the ride, an ambassador about to be killed calls for help. Of course, you get on the ride!
You can spend the night in POTUS Suite. The National Debt clock is one whole wall of this luxurious suite. Enjoy the luxury of satisfying any craving from our 24 hour vending machines down the hall! On the other side of your suite wall will be Hillary Clinton having loud sex. At 3 AM Bill and a hooker will be banging on your door demanding that Hillary get her girl friend out of bed!
No state is offering any tax incentive for building this amusement park. Maybe Sarah Palin would be the tour guide in Alaska for BO Land? Be sure to stop in the gift shop to get the gift pack; “I got a pen! I got a phone!”
The NATO meeting has not happened yet. Of course the whole world knows about a “secret plan” to assemble a rapid deployment force in the Baltic countries. Do you wonder why our allies cannot trust the USA? The game of chess has equal forces and the same allowed moves on both sides of the chess board. The advantage is in positioning your forces, with a secret strategy. Your opponent can see what is moved, but there is no announcement declaring that in 2 moves I will checkmate your king by these 2 moves. Our president wants publicity and strutting around in the spot light on everything that he can claim credit. Even in chess you need to try to keep your intent secret, just like global military plans.
So I am quite sure that the “leaked agreement details” of a rapid deployment force of 4,000 troops is not big enough to intimidate anyone. The whole value of the force is in secrecy. 4,000 troops can swiftly move into a strategic position when needed. Russia laughs and Putin announces he can add a lot more troops to Ukraine invasion now that he knows this. Thank you to our fearless leader for having his staff leak sensitive military information again!
The only secret information we have is on IRS emails, Affordable Healthcare security breaches, Fast and Furious guns Holder gave Mexican drug lords, and Benghazi massacre of deserted U.S. citizens. Even the federal Inspector Generals that are tasked to investigate our government have gone on record complaining of being blocked with information moved out of reach.
If our president thought of Putin as a Republican Congressman, maybe he would take secrecy and being tough to heart.
Latest report recorded by National Snow & Ice Data Center issued on August 19, 2014. NSIDC report is readily available on their web site. August level of ice Antarctic Ice is at record high. So Global Warming crisis makes more ice?
German scientists charted solar activity effects on climate. Read up on how people in the world struggled though global cooling from 1350 up to 1850. Anyway, solar activity measured in ways I don’t understand, are in a trend to earth getting colder for a extended period of years. Frank Bosse and Fritz Varenholt published their report on the relation of sun spots to more heat transmitted to earth’s climate.
The “scientists” demanding everyone accept Global Warming as our punishment for enjoying creature comforts, are the modern dooms day repent idiots. They are more like fortune tellers and probably have no more credibility than a wizard from medieval ages. Global warming wizards sneer and laugh at any question of their predictions of doom.
Volcano eruptions create more pollution in atmosphere than China and India for a year. Wildfires in the USA create more pollution than all of the coal utility plants! Who can we fine for volcano and forest fires?
The Museum of Doom has many exhibits. I am suggesting to make Al Gore the fund raiser and curator of this new museum. I will be the Ombudsman at large. It seems nobody is happy, unless we can predict several extinction threats to keep everyone scared and alarmed. Mark Twain observed “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so!”
My favorite president Ronald Reagan had many blunders and sadly many deaths with his Mideast policies. Ethnic rivalries and religious disputes over centuries are too complex for a USA solution. The best we can do is protect USA by a combination of military and diplomacy. We can’t demand that all conflicting sects in Mideast get along because we tell them to play nice. It won’t happen!
Our president returned from his vacation to hold a press conference. Nobody asked for this conference. He volunteered. There is a term in the north woods about avoiding hitting a “deer in the headlights”. Our fearless leader was a deer in the headlights. “We don’t have a strategy yet!” I will forget his 19th century expression of not putting the cart before his horse.
Ronald Reagan rode horses his whole life, but never bothered hooking up a buggy to any horse. Our current president has never rode a horse. He has never been in a horse drawn cart. He does drive a golf cart! Who worries about how he hooks up his horse and cart? Who cares?
We all are worried. Chaos on policies dealing with international threats confirms we have no skipper at the rudder. “We don’t have a strategy yet!” So the ship of state is just drifting because he can’t decide on any strategy. So all the dead military in Iraq and Afghanistan were sent to die with no strategy? That is a morale builder?! To use another 19th century expression; “No point in beating a dead horse!” Our president is waiting just to wait. It’s a long wait until he gets some horse sense!
He should stay on vacation until 2017.
Thursday September 11, 2014 will be 13 years since USA was attacked by Islamic terrorists. There is a lot of real concern on significant attacks within USA on this anniversary date. Our folks at Homeland Security are invisible and mute for us citizens who care.
The flood of undocumented illegal aliens marching across our border by Mexico has gone on for years. Our commercial news media are tired of reporting on this ongoing security crisis. Our Homeland Security officials are not improving our security. Hundreds of terrorists are free to walk into our country and move around our country. We still don’t keep track of foreign visitor visa population!
We need to be prepared to defend our individual home towns. The federal lax approach means we are on our own. FEMA has been continually alerting every family to prepare for emergencies. I would view multiple terrorist attacks across our country like the Boston Marathon bombing as a real emergency. Telling people to stay in their homes to avoid being shot by police is a real emergency.
Our military experts are being ignored and told to shut up on terrorist threats. Who is irritated at the military sharing warnings to USA? It’s not the terrorists upset at our top military. It seems our White House does not want any mention of the icebergs as our ship of state looks more like the “unsinkable” Titanic! Our fearless leader is so damn smart, he is muzzling our warriors who have won battles and wars. I do not trust or feel safer with a golfer in chief.
Keep your eyes open, and do prepare. Each of us may find we are on our own with police and emergency services occupied. The safest place for citizens are on the golf course our president is playing. The security forces will all be there.
The rope twirling native American from the last century knows more about our problems than talking heads on television. Will Rogers has a few words of wisdom to share, and reading about his life reveals why the people of the USA love men like him.
“If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can’t it get us out?”
“Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment!”
“Be thankful we’re not getting all the government we paid for!”
“I don’t make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.”
“Last year we said; ‘Things can’t go on like this’, and they didn’t. They got worse!”
“Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today.”
His contributions to our country included his passion for aviation and the defense of our land with a real air force. He kept the country laughing through the Depression. His poking fun at the pompous politicians kept the folks chuckling instead of lynching.
Read about Will Rogers. It’s worth the time.
As a KGB thug, Vladimir Putin does know how to make Russia citizens unhappy! His threat to USA is blockade of our agriculture products import. The young millennials in Russia do not know the misery of life during days of Kruschev. Grocery shelves now, today in Russia look like during the days of Kruschev.
In response to the additional economic sanctions on Russia because of the Ukraine invasion, Putin dismissed importance of food products from European Union and USA. That is why the grocery stores in Russia quickly sold out inventory of these products. The people in Russiado not enjoy Russian staples alone!
Yes, Russian vodka and caviar are awesome but don’t feed a Russian family! “Collectivized Agriculture” are government farms taken from families and run by bureaucrats terribly. Back in the 1980’s people were given permission to raise their own food on small plots. These private gardens out produced the massive collective farms!
Anyway, the new generation in Russia know that police and government officials are corrupt to make a better income. They are bending the law to get ahead, because there is no law in Russia. They do enjoy western products and Putin now has made everyone mad. You can’t eat propaganda. You can’t feed a family with propaganda.
Kruschev bumbled and blustered on the world stage, as he squeezed and killed Russian dissent. Russian families had miserable food, miserable working conditions, and saw life as miserable. The new generation in Russia will not be sitting and taking it.
Vacation time is drawing near for our representatives in Congress. August recess is a challenge on which lobbyist trip to accept. There is the shame of not getting any invitation to a lobbyist paid trip!
The hobo population of this great country want to offer a all expense paid trip to all you folks in Congress. Hop a freight train to the Hobo jungle! We will entertain you with hobo poetry, Mulligan stew by our bon fire, and sleep under the stars.
Some of the Congress folk on the all expense paid lobbyist trips might need a traveling buddy. The hobo nation will send a traveling companion to share the burden of a luxury vacation.
We have volunteered to help our president on his fund raising trips, but he wants us to pay CASH! Is this America? Put it on my tab!
We wish we could see the vacation pictures! However, they are highly classified and will never be seen.
Will Rogers observed that; “The American taxpayer keeps sending Congress men on expensive trips abroad. It might be worth it, except they keep coming back?!”
People in desperate financial trouble are always good prospects to get robbed by a bank! nyti.ms/1no8dfn Check out this report in New York Times.
Folks that lost it all in 2008, get a 2nd chance to get robbed again! You hear the advertising screaming on the radio at you. “NO CREDIT? BAD CREDIT? Come to me, because everybody gets a car!” Yes the BIG BANKS are involved in some new illegal, unethical, and fraudulent loans for cars. The USA has the majority of car loans for 4 years or longer!? A rat hole car lot pays commission money for sales people pushing the overpriced used cars with the promise of a “loan”! The loan is USURY at rates that used to be illegal. 25%? 30%? If you got a loan for over 2 years, then the interest is more than double your overpriced car! So you get a rat hole car that needs money to fix, with a loan that you can’t pay on a loan application filled out by the salesman with FALSE information on income to qualify!
So it is clear to me that the so called TOO BIG TO FAIL banks have criminals managing their operations. These car loan forms are accepted with lies from salesman on income. Salesman lies to sucker on size of payment due. Customer gets the car, and gets the payment statement from bank. Yes, you thought you were poor before this car. Now, you are destitute!
Our Attorney General will extort from TOO BIG TO FAIL banks “settlements” for billions. You name the crime, and Holder happy to stop prosecution for extortion of billions. So coming in next few years will be the Attorney General acting shocked on these car scam loans. I am in favor of forcing the “Occupy Wall Street” protestors to actually WORK on helping the people robbed by car scam. Of course the protestors were fake street people paid to act upset.
US imposes restrictions on Russia to ban them access to financial transactions. This is lighting a fuse. This means the aggression and retaliation by Russia can escalate quickly and without predictability. It appears that our president is prepared to face Russia alone in retaliations to his new restrictions. Our allies are watching but not participating in this latest retaliation against Russia.
The sanction escalation by USA can lead to armed conflict suddenly. So it seems a bad idea to be reducing our military strength in soldiers as well as armaments. But we know that our president has a plan to handle Russia. He has a pen and a phone! Obama seems on schedule to ignite a global war by his inept fumbling, delaying, and strange silence to countless acts of aggression against our allies.
This would be a good time to prepare your home for the inconvenience of a global war. We won’t get hit by nuclear rockets where I live. So we will need to stock up to survive a world war. I don’t expect to welcome the Russian and Chinese military when they storm onto our shores. This might be a more serious threat than “climate change”?
It might surprise Obama and Biden that Russia and China might not answer the phone when the war starts. We could not have a more weak ineffective secretary of defense than Hagel. This crew has ridiculed and beat down real military leaders to build up LGBT gay pride events and parades. We saw how brilliant Iraq exit worked out as well as Libya meddling. They don’t know how to handle success by winning. Military won battles and wars, and White House turned it into disaster and loss. President can have Bergdahl as recruiting poster for building patriotic morale?
Texas Representative Sheila Jackson is the lollipop queen! She took a big bag of lollipops to the Texas detention camp of illegal aliens. Representative Sheila did her contribution to help these kids by passing out some lollipops! Life is so easy. Pass out lollipops and leave. Thanks for your deep commitment and compassion Sheila Jackson. Of course, she had to go on and on how she bought lollipops and handed them out. Come to the USA and get lollipops!
It’s been 60 years since the USA fell in love with Shirley Temple and her child star movies. One of the best known songs is “On the Good Ship Lollipop”. Sheila Jackson is no Shirley Temple. I can only hope Sheila did not attempt to entertain the captive audience in the detention center by singing and dancing.
Every town that gets the surprise package of illegal aliens get no advance notice. Our brilliant administration just shoves these kids around by planes and buses with no plan. At some point these kids will not be happy with just a lollipop! We can expect a mutiny if all they get are lollipops.
The depth of thought on the dimwit good hearts that welcome illegal aliens is to pass out candy lollipops. Forget about the towns overwhelmed with too many kids being dumped in their community. Forget about the idea of keeping track of where these kids are shipped. Our president purposely keeps disorganized to frustrate any attempts of repairing the damage already done.
Our country started from very humble origins. The people here were outcasts for devout Christian beliefs that did not match the state religion in England. We had indentured servants under contract to property owners in England. The wealth of the colonies was created by the hard work and personal sacrifice of pilgrims. Soon the concept of freedom began to grow, because we were enduring the hardships and surviving on our own. All we got from England were taxes and more restrictions and regulations.
Just consider our country today. We the people have patriots who are very young in our military. Our Viet Nam veterans saw their sacrifice as meaningless after the country was lost. Our Iraq veterans are seeing their sacrifice as meaningless as that country slips into chaos. Our leadership in Washington D.C. is more interested in taxes, restrictions, and regulations to tie down our citizens.
Would we ever dare to declare our Independence today? We the people stand ready. Our White House likes to talk about freedom as defined by foreign governments through the United Nations. We did not sacrifice for our family and lose loved ones in battle to preserve the UN. We are the USA.
We all are heirs of the American Revolution. We are all protectors of our Constitution and we all are proud of our Declaration of Independence. We need to celebrate the 4th of July! We need to preserve our freedoms and challenge those who claim to do our thinking for us!
It is time to remember who we are! We are free. We can’t say we want to be free. We have to fight to remain free. Don’t do us any favors by tearing down the protections of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights! I don’t care to see my rights destroyed by using a pen and a phone.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a creation of our fearless leader dreamed up in 2012. We have a president who has a dream. Any child anywhere can wind up in the USA! He encourages dumping children here from any country. The “Arrivals” is a nice way of saying children had smuggler criminals shoving them over our border into the USA.
Once a child is legally declared an “Arrival”, then a lawyer is assigned at the expense of the USA! Now the child is a minor. So how can a lawyer speak for the minor that is not of legal age? Don’t worry about legal technicalities! Each child gets a lawyer! Our president supports due process of law for illegal aliens. Our state governors, and our citizens get steam rolled over with no say on shoving these “Arrivals” into any state at a bus stop or air port.
It would be a great humanitarian gesture to have our first lady lecture the illegal aliens on nutrition in Texas. Also her girls can volunteer to help these children adjust to handouts in the USA at these indoctrination camps. THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN!
To demonstrate the devotion of our first family to DACA Champions of Change is to have a children indoctrination camp set up in their neighborhood in Chicago. Or are these children somebody else’s problem? I love the humanitarian speeches in the abstract, but not real connection to a personal commitment. “We need to help these children!” This means YOU need to help these children while I make speeches, and then go to some billionaire fund raising party.
What the hell is a “champion of change”? Who made you champion? Our president gets to designate you a “champion of change”! Because, all of these illegal aliens got scholarships to ivy league colleges (so the college can have the approval of Obama) so these graduates can make a living telling us citizens on how to make the ideal society for them.
Hypocrisy is in full bloom as our president exudes compassion in speeches, but won’t lift a finger if it takes personal effort. How about a sleep over for 10,000 children at the White House from Texas indoctrination camp of our president? THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!
Al Muthanna has a chemical weapons factory captured by ISIS terrorists. This is confusing. The Democrats were laughing at Bush reason for Iraq war to prevent WMD. (How did Syria get all those chemical weapons?)
Reports of ISIS capturing a chemical weapons complex in Al Muthanna raises a lot of problems. How can Democrats claim there were no WMD, but now need to prevent ISIS from getting control of WMD that never existed? If these are imaginary weapons, how can ISIS get WMD?
The myths created by opponents of Bush seem to be crumbling. ISIS took the effort to capture this area to get more weapon superiority. The weapons of mass destruction with lethal chemicals are ugly deaths for many civilians.
The US allies in the Mideast in 1991 were relieved that Operation Desert Storm drove out Saddam Hussein from conquest of Kuwait oil fields. The Mideast allies now are extremely doubting the reliability of the USA seeing the bungled exit from Iraq. The USA that operated Desert Storm is a memory of our past. The USA that bungled the exit from Iraq is the accurate view of our administration weakness today.
Everybody seems baffled on why all these kids are coming across the border! How about asking the kids that are crammed into the USA Homeland buildings in Texas? They can talk can’t they?
The brilliant crew in the White House seem baffled and concerned on why oh why are we getting a lot of kids now? Those of us who believe fairy tales know. Grimm had a story that fits. “The Pied Piper of Hamlin”
The town was over run by rats and could not eradicate with cats or clubs to bash rat heads. Desperate to solve this infestation, they agreed to hire the Pied Piper who would lead those rats far away by his piping a tune. He was hired and promised to be paid when work done.
After his work was done, the government officials refused to pay. The Piper changed his tune. He played a tune that drew out all of the children to follow him away from town forever. The White House claims that a Pied Piper is drawing all these children across Mexico border now! Maybe South America families want to get into USA knowing kids don’t get kicked out without applying by immigration! Welcome to disease carried by kids not kept in quarantine!
President Carter had the Iran hostage crisis at the end of his presidency. Our fearless leader has left our embassy staff in Baghdad as bait for the Sunni terrorists. I wouldn’t feel real optimistic if I was in the Baghdad embassy. Remember Benghazi? Can we expect a “stand down” order for the military in the embassy to surrender? Plus we already gave away the important terrorists in the Bergdahl trade. What do have left to trade?
The Twitter campaign of Michelle for the kidnapped Nigerian school girls was very effective. Nothing has happened but everybody felt good with their Tweets holding stupid signs about bring our girls back. We can only hope that she will be just as effective on her Baghdad Twitter campaign?
For some odd reason, our NATO allies are really concerned on how the USA is again missing any meaningful or swift response. They discovered a pattern of behavior of our White House to be too deliberate. France has a lot of energy investments in Iraq. Our president still is in no rush to approve the Canada pipeline Keystone to increase oil supply in North America. It has only been 5 years in review, and repeated review, and delays on reviewing the repeated review. Canada knows that Obama pledged a swift decision for approval of pipeline in 2012 campaigning against Romney.
Anyway, our National Security Advisor Susan Rice has been oddly silent on this national security blunder. She has not shown up at every Sunday news program as she did for Benghazi killings spurred by some video nobody saw. We know that with Susan will review our experience from the Iran hostage scenario to guide our president right into another disaster.
The US military killed in Iraq and permanently disabled followed orders and gave their full measure of devotion. The military have no voice in the Security Advisor office because those folks know it all without any combat veterans help. We are waiting to learn the amount of time all the options will be reviewed and consulted with international consensus.
Our fearless leader has shared words of wisdom with us simple folk. I had to pick up a few of these words because they are pearls worth keeping!
We have not heard these words recently; “shovel ready jobs”? I am not sure why he has abandoned these well worn words. When people look for employment, I always look under SHOVEL. The historians may find it odd that this president in the 21st century talks of job skills from the 18th century.
We know that our president wants everyone to know that he will never put “boots on the ground”! Since BO is the architect on our departure from Iraq, he can say we do not have boots on the ground anymore. Wait a minute! Terrorists on Jihad are over running Iraq right now! So all the money spent, all the wounded and dead from the USA is just sand in the desert.
WAIT A MINUTE! Joe Biden wants to be heard. We don’t know why but Joe said IRAQ foreign policy is the greatest achievement of President Obama. On February 11, 2010 Joe on television was crowing on what they have done in Iraq. It might be time to eat crow. A lot of the families who lost over 4,200 sons and daughters probably will wonder if these deaths are a cruel betrayal by our government. Now Joe is talking about sending troops BACK INTO IRAQ after they lost the country?! Does that mean the dreaded phrase “boots on the ground”?
For some odd reason Obama was talking about fox holes today. He thinks Aussies are great fighters, and welcome Aussies into his fox hole. Kind of bizarre comment, and I can’t imagine Obama inviting soldiers into his fox hole! So we think the English and Canadian soldiers are not welcome into his fox hole?
IF we do go back into Iraq, now that the country is lost, then Obama will declare the exit date right now when we are leaving. That is a great way to win a war! He is a military genius, in his own mind.
The policies and the priorities of our White House are scaring a lot of us citizens. Children are being dumped into our country, and we are keeping them?! Our jobless “recovery” focused contracts and regulations helping companies of wealthy lobbyists. We set a record on our military dead and wounded under Obama rules of engagement in combat. Oh yeah, we turn over killers from our 9/11/2001 attack back to Taliban!
Professional politicians know the problems are so complex, that we simple folk can’t understand the stupid laws and the dumb failures of government. After a while, we just get tired of being told that we can’t understand why we do not get the government we want. Even the alternative groups like Tea Party thought Brat had NO CHANCE to oust Cantor. Brat just kept plugging along with local folks to claim their right to representation.
I salute the voters in Virginia. I welcome Brat changing the election debate. We are not forced to endorse “hope and change” or “reform immigration” as the priorities of government. We know the problems in the USA are created by the laws and the regulations recently added to “help us”. We don’t need the government to help us. We need the government to STOP HURTING USA!
Commercial news media, and the smart political “experts” ignored Brat. Cantor was going to win according to the folks in the know. Well, the political power brokers don’t know WE THE PEOPLE in the USA anymore! You can ignore WE THE PEOPLE. You can claim WE THE PEOPLE are stupid. However, WE THE PEOPLE know when the ship of state is going nowhere.
We don’t need slogans. We need choices and a review on the excess of government wasting our tax money.
This month of June in the year of our Lord 2014, the USA has eliminated the jobs lost 5 years ago. No parade or celebrations are planned. We have added 10 million new working citizens in those 5 years. We need 10 million more jobs and we still have unemployment over 6%.
Lets put this in perspective. An old retired actor inherited the Carter recession and had replaced all jobs lost in 11 months. Let me use the new punch line of Democrats Clinton and Reid; “What’s the difference?!” To answer the problem of our recession now, our president Obama had his brilliant college professors try to help the recovery. Remember his “Jobs Czar” that disappeared without a ripple of notice? Remember the stimulus that would add Obama’s archaic “shovel ready jobs”? After 5 years his meddling made it worse! President Reagan doing nothing more than tax cuts killed unemployment in 11 months. (Oh yeah, he got our hostages released from Iran without releasing terrorists held in jail!)
So what we already know, the USA would be better off if we kept our president on permanent vacation and golfing. We don’t need a pep rally class president. We need a president like Reagan. He wasn’t perfect, but he never was arrogant and he did negotiate with all political opponents before a new policy went into effect.
We hugged and bid farewell to our soldier son as he shipped out to join up with his 32nd Division shipping out from Wisconsin. He was bound for Texas for shortened orientation since he was deemed combat ready. He did get to practice escaping out of a bombed Humvee as part of necessary training before shipping out. This was start of 2009 for our family.
He got adopted by some combat veterans at base and subjected to some rowdy off base escapades before shipping out. Baghdad used to be a far away place until the USA decided to keep us safe at home by sending troops far away. Like a lot of young enlisted (19 years old), Marc volunteered to protect our nation since the 9/11/2001 attack on the USA. I never thought the battles would still be going in 2008 when he enlisted.
Marc is very friendly and makes a lot of friends. He loved scouting, and the high adventure camps of mountain climbing and canoe. He was not eager to go to Iraq, but he did go and as most things went in 100%. He took his laptop to Skype home, take on line college courses, and his running shoes. He loves to run. His assignment was at Green Zone headquarters administrative staff for a Colonel. The Colonel liked to run.
7 days of 12 hours was the norm, and sometimes more hours. Army life is not for weak or soft folks.
There was a Taliban suicide bomber who tried to kill a few at Green Zone. It was an old Japanese pick up truck. The bomb did not explode, but the Taliban did get to die as he wished. Most of us in USA are wise guys. They kept the truck to run errands. (Explosives were removed.)
Marc never drove a stick shift. He got to learn how to drive a Taliban suicide bomber truck. Then he would take the ride to the Baghdad airport to deliver or pick up military visitors for Green Zone. The truck was less of a target than a Humvee, and Marc had fun with a junky truck.
The Green Zone was heavily guarded but it was not 100% safe. Just after Marc’s tour of duty was done, one of his buddies died with a RPG shot into their base tower.
Marc was glad to do stuff to break up the routine of 100 degree days and cold desert nights. Truck errands, volunteering to guard prisoners to get out of the office, and a lot of running. He was in top finishers of a crazy run through obstacles and then target practice. It was called “The Desert Cup” and I think it was red Solo cup.
Anyway, I was just thinking of his luck after seeing more news about this Bergdahl soldier. Marc never walked away. I am proud of him and his buddies who protect us. We need military leadership to instill the same attitude in our young 19 year old enlisted military today.
Can we expect our fearless leader to be a horse trader? So why now do the Taliban types want to negotiate? Or did they keep making offers all along and this moment was selected by Obama? How did we get the negotiating done? Did the CIA station chief in the Afghanistan visit confirm the details of this deal? CIA chief can’t say, because he is now in hiding after Obama staff revealed his identity.
The Gitmo 5 probably cost USA $200,000 per year in cost of confinement. So it is a saving to military budget. Taliban spent $25 per year for keeping Sgt. Bergdahl. So why now?
It seems odd that president had to break our laws to make “such a deal”. Of course, our laws do not apply to our president. This president praises “international law” and makes international treaties trampling our USA law.
The father of Bergdahl vowed to free all from Gitmo and spouts Sharia Law nonsense too. This whole deal stinks. Our president could not wait one day to consult with Congress?
Environmental Protection Agency has some new regulations to take over every piece of property in USA! If it rains by your home on any day, then you do not have any say on your own home? YES! If there is any rain water at any time on your property, then you needs permits from the EPA to do anything! Absurd lunacy is what I see in our current White House. EPA needs to save rain water from every home owner polluting and poisoning our water! I could not dream up this joke, but I do suggest that all rain water should be collected and sent to EPA bureaucrats to drown themselves.
Permit process to get approval or denial on installing a bird bath can take 10 years and thousands of dollars in permit hearings. That is water torture to drive away property rights of every home owner.
There are Senate and Congressional hearings to be held. I am contacting both my Representative and my Senators so they know that my financial support and vote depend on them killing this EPA lunacy! Get with this too, unless you welcome EPA oversight on your home.
The Millennial generation are at a stage of life to take charge. They know the lies, empty promises, and problems that are challenging them on a daily basis. They are beginning to discover the failures of those elected to lead our country.
The problem is that our current leadership has no foundation in values that do not shift with public opinion. The moral compass that guides each one of us is not based on popularity polls. Anyone who lives their life to be “popular” is on a fool’s errand. A real leader will not appease, pretend to be ignorant of failures, or only pretend to take charge when the polls show the public question his leadership.
If you listen to speeches of our president, then you don’t know there is a millennial generation in our country. These are the leaders and foundation of our future. These are the ignored and patronized citizens who do not merit much attention of our president.
This is the generation that has volunteered in military service and faced combat in response to the 9/11/2001 attack on the USA. My son and his buddies have been in combat. My son has lost buddies in battle. My son has buddies that have lost limbs and are struggling to adjust with what they experienced in battle.
I am tired of the endless focus on baby boomers. We have had the limelight longer than needed. Our future are my sons and their buddies. The strength of our economy to provide growth in product and innovations needs to be helped instead of tied down with EPA, OSHA, IRS, and meddling by amateurs in Washington D.C. Our country can have dynamic growth. GET OUT OF OUR WAY trying to help with more laws!?
Now is the time to recognize the vitality of our future relies upon millennial aged couples and families.
Our country has a great generation that faced war, economic hardships, and a grim future at this point. We don’t need speeches. We need to take action to help and support this great generation. I am proud of my sons and their buddies. They are entitled to have fun and see promise in their future! They are entitled to enjoy life, and have hope!
President of Ukraine is newly elected Petro Poroshenko. The voting was done on Sunday, so everyone could vote without missing work. (Is this a novel concept for USA to consider?) On Monday the military are fighting back to reclaim Donetsk International Airport from the so called “insurgents”. They don’t live in Ukraine and came from Russia, but they are called “insurgents”.
It is evident that President Poroshenko has started the military to drive out the Russian military and the “insurgents”. The conquest of Kiev by Russia is a powder keg problem that is more than explosive. Our president may need to make a decision on our relationship with Ukraine a little quicker than the Keystone Pipeline 5 year delay.
Considering the financial challenges essential to the success of Ukraine, this new president is uniquely qualified and understands international investment world. This could be equally to the advantage of the USA if we had Mitt Romney as our president right now. But of course, Romney could not fight the commercial news media conspiracy to silence him, and Romney did try to expose Obama’s lies to mislead the voters.
The people in the USA know that our president is waiting to learn more by what he learns in the news. We have learned to wait, and wait on seeing any response to a real problem from our president. We have to be patient and wait, just like those who died in the VA system waiting.
Putin may not be so patient on seeing Ukraine challenge his incursion into stealing the country of Poroshenko. Poroshenko probably won’t wait for a clear signal from the USA. We all saw in the news how Syria, Iran, and our mission in Benghazi were handled by our fearless leader.
On May 2, in the year of our Lord 2000, our President William Jefferson Clinton signed a resolution passed by our senators and representatives.
“In this time of unprecedented success and prosperity throughout our
land, I ask that all Americans come together to recognize how fortunate
we are to live in freedom and to observe a universal “National Moment
of Remembrance” on each Memorial Day. This memorial observance
represents a simple and unifying way to commemorate our history and
honor the struggle to protect our freedoms.”
Unfortunately, we are not enjoying “unprecedented success and prosperity” in our land. We all know the problems of our neighbors, relatives, and our families face as obstacles to our future prosperity. Regardless, we understand that the price paid by those in service to protect our country demand honor and respect. We cannot ignore, forget, or insult the sacrifice made and the price paid by previous generations and the current millennial generation.
Please take the time to celebrate the strength of our citizens to endure, persevere, and sacrifice for the future of our country and all our citizens. The resolution asks that all across the USA at 3:00 P.M. local time each citizen stop their activities to reflect, remember, and think of all those who gave of themselves in our armed services.
So before the Memorial Day weekend, buy a VFW poppy, or stop for a few beers at the local Legion Hall, or donate a few bucks to the USO. None of us can adequately repay for all the sacrifices made on our behalf. Any small measure is worth more than all the speeches by politicians over the holiday.
I am grateful that my father came back from WWII, and my older brother came back from Viet Nam, and my oldest son came back from Iraq. Don’t forget to keep pestering your representative in congress on getting VA services to those in need. After the spot light is off, that is when we need to keep pushing. We have services delayed and denied in the application process that is like Chinese water torture and a back log of over 500,000 veterans waiting just to be eligible for benefits.
Our president can be congratulated on Eric Holder sending illegal weapons to the Mexican drug cartel killers into Mexico! Mexico is arming their own militia with government automatic weapons for ranchers and farmers to kill drug cartel. The farmers and ranchers might kill some folks by mistake, but the blood bath by drug cartel has to be stopped somehow!
The USA Homeland Security team has their hands tied by our current president. It’s time to let the armed militia along the border work just like the ranchers and farmers on the Mexican side of border! Homeland Security have their arms tied and blindfolds on them by our government. It’s time to let the citizens of USA on the border protect their security.
Eric Holder seems preoccupied investigating the killers from Benghazi, and the IRS persecution of TEA party organizations. We can make his job easier by taking over this nuisance job so he’s not distracted.
The drug cartel mask themselves in a religious name “knights Templar” from the Catholic Crusades. The drug group “knights” are killers without a soul and have no connection to the Catholic church. Of course our commercial news media will be confused and report the drug killers as a Catholic group, I’m sure.
Green Bay Wisconsin represents the best of our country. The people here are hard working, and expect to get paid well. The infamous Koch brothers who own the Georgia Pacific paper products company have come to learn this. They wanted to reduce the highly paid work force and reduce investments for updating the very old equipment. Guess what? The people here have the plants humming and setting efficiency output that beats state of art mechanized wonders in southern states. After paying MORE for the labor rates, and the extra shipping expense to distribute, the delivered product is still cheaper. They are increasing investment in Green Bay because you can’t beat success!
We got hard working, and smart working folks. We won’t work cheap, but you get your money’s worth here. Anyway, the Green Bay Packers organization reflects our personality here. Curly Lambeau is a legend. He was a innovator in football. He is beloved despite his personal flaws because he was stubborn enough to keep pushing professional football from very humble beginnings. The ACME PACKERS were sponsored by a meat packing company. Green Bay is a major butcher center for cattle because we like to eat steaks and bacon out here!
The new Lambeau Field is awesome, but not awesome enough. A major expansion and improvements on this new Packers field is underway. We went to Curly’s Pub last night for a celebration. Marcus left Big Sky Resort after working the season with 2 of his new buddies who worked with him. Ben from New Zealand and Bob from Long Island stopped in Green Bay to see “Titletown” USA! Of course we invited them to dinner for Green Bay version of Wisconsin food & beer.
You get a lot of food no matter what you order. You get Wisconsin food and no apologies. I ordered a couple of baskets of fried cheese curds with marinara sauce. Of course some Wisconsin brewed beers are mandatory! Try a Tailgater; Half pound hamburger with bratwurst on top and huge order of French fries. Try a Farmhouse; Half pound hamburger with Canadian bacon and fried egg. These guys can eat a lot, but they met their match with these meals that had them crying uncle! We haven’t seen Marc for over a year. He looks like a mountain man, because he is one!
Did I mention we don’t spend a lot of money out here in Green Bay? You could say we don’t waste money. Fed 6 of us with beers for $120. Great service, great food, great beer for less money. You got to visit here.
Ben will hang out in New York before returning to New Zealand. Marc will work for a few months in a bar that Bob works at on Long Island. Then Marc heads out to California with his army buddies that need him as a physical assistant to help them due to war injuries. Marc returned from Iraq with no war wounds. He will be surfing by Santa Cruz and going to college with his army buddies.
We common folk are too simple minded to understand. Our fearless leader always adjusts the facts to help us absorb his vast wisdom. He wants to help us, even as he lets many die and suffer by his lack of attention. We should feel sympathy that the burden of saving the world is too much for our president.
Obama did have some interesting top members selected to protect our country for National Security. “Dude, that was 2 years ago!” The “dude” did explain that our president NEVER made an appearance in the situation room during the Benghazi assault on our citizens.
The truth will be found now with Congressman Trey Gowdy. This process will show the country that the law applies to everyone equally! The dead will not be forgotten.
Baseball is America’s game! The majority of boys and girls continue to grow up playing some baseball on park team or just pick up games at park. The baseball fans in Wisconsin are stunned! National League Brewers are leading their Central Division in April!
The players are to be congratulated on their efforts. One of the great human interest stories started during Spring training. A hungry and hurt little dog wandered by the Phoenix ball field of the Brewers on Feb. 17. That’s how things go in life. Down and out but never giving up, the little dog and the Brewers both want to have a great year! They both are so far!
The team adopted the dog, and he is a darling of the baseball fans. The children especially love to see Hank. The “Hank House” is in Miller Field with a meet and greet area for children to meet Hank. He is a lucky dog, and gave good luck to the team.
Little miracles happen all around us. It just takes some small dogs to get big results!
How many brilliant students at Harvard had to experience struggle to survive? I never tried applying to attend, but I have learned how to survive by trials of adversity. I am confident most of them could not start a fire or set up camp without a guide. Their odds for survival get worse if they have to fish or hunt for food.
The earliest ancestors of man developed weapons to hunt for food, and they did need fire for warmth and safety against predators.
The discovery of fire kept our ancestors from freezing to death. Fire was also our source of heat for cooking and killing bacteria from raw meat. Smoked fish, ham, bacon, and sausage was safest method for storage of food in root cellar.
Some students from Harvard were asked if the USA or ISIS posed a greater threat to the world. The students suggesting the USA was the greater threat to peace made me laugh. They certainly didn’t pose a physical threat to world peace.
If they can’t set up shelter for camp, light a fire, fish, or hunt, then their survival depends upon money from home for everything. Let’s start with lighting a fire first for survival as the sun is sinking and the air starts to chill. Native inhabitants in the forest don’t care about people. Wolves, cougars, hawks, eagles, owls, bears, and foxes are all around forests where there are towns and cities.
The woods have fallen tree limbs, pine cones, twigs and dead trees. This is ready fuel for wild fire or camp fire. Starting the fire requires a basic understanding of combustion. Pine cones and twigs can be used to build a chimney to shelter the small flame to consume the kindling and leap a stronger flame onto the chopped limbs we stack up like a teepee over the burning chimney.
Some students from Harvard view USA as a greater threat to peace than ISIS! The fire of ISIS is not yet strong enough to ignite a world war. Have these students read the history from The Crusades that had battled Muslim warriors for hundreds of years? Europe basically failed in their mission to protect European countries from Muslim invasions. ISIS is but another chapter in the Muslim history of invasion and beheadings of non believers. USA did not exist during these early centuries of Muslim invasion. USA did exist with our battles of Barbary Coast pirates who were Muslim pirates stealing our cargo vessels and enslaving sailors. Our marines were called “leather necks” because they did not become victims of beheading by the Muslims.
My 6 pound sharp axe and 2 pound hatchet are in a box next to my fireplace tools. ISIS are not welcomein my woods. I am more concerned on Harvard students losing their heads to ISIS due to stupidity.
“And yet most pogonophiles carried on wearing theirs regardless – and quite right too. Yes, the beard had become a bit of a cliché. A neat version screams ‘still got it – honest!’ a bit too loudly. A huge, out-of-control bush has started to look like a bit of an effort to live with, which is the opposite of the anti-establishment Hobo vibe the wearer presumably hopes to convey.” Hannah Marriot article quoting Jerry Paxman on the whisker trend bores him as more Neanderthal than hip.
I don’t want to be hip, and won’t let my whiskers give me the Gabby Hayes look. In his professional career, his whiskers filled his bank account handsomely! His wife endured the look with his wealth from the cowboy character he became. I won’t be as wealthy as Gabby Hayes and don’t expect a movie career he enjoyed.
International celebrity soccer star David Beckham is entitled to do whatever he wants with his popularity and fashion plate family. What bothers me is the whisker crowd in USA steals the Hobo look, with no coins for Hobo community! What is with the Duck Dynasty look now for metro- sexuals?
