The Real Truth

March 31, 2011

from Stratfor:

unnamed European diplomat admitted that the no-fly zone had been nothing but a diplomatic smokescreen designed to get Arab states on board with a military operation that held regime change as the true goal.

What Is Vital

March 31, 2011

Mr. Gates has said Libya is not in our vital interests.

NATO does not have an overall strategy for the mission.

The UN dithers on real action.

More bombs, more risk, more money and more indecision.

It is vital we have a President who has all of these things lines up before we go into a country. War is not done by community organizing.

Loud and Clear

March 29, 2011

Voters are less supportive than ever of congressional incumbents and fewer than one-out-of-three think their own representative is the best person for the job.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 16% of Likely U.S. Voters feel that, generally speaking, it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were reelected. That’s a seven-point drop from 23% last August and down from 19% in February 2010.

Fifty-six percent (56%) say it would be better if most incumbents were defeated and 28% are not sure

The IRS Is So Stupid

March 28, 2011

from Baseline:

instead of dealing with serious issues, it seems like the IRS is going after individuals for — get this — falsifying their income on stated-income loans. Yes, they’re going after borrowers. Joe Nocera tells the story of Charlie Engle, who is going to jail because an IRS agent saw him in a movie about ultra-marathoning and wondered how he found time to train for it; because the IRS sent an “attractive female undercover agent” after Engle on suspicion of money laundering; because Engle or his broker falsified his income on a mortgage application; and because the broker testified against him and got a shorter sentence, despite pleading guilty to falsifying multiple mortgage applications (since when do you give the more senior person a plea to testify against the more junior person in the conspiracy?). The kicker is that Engle is going to have to pay $262,500 in restitution to Countrywide, the “victim” in this affair.

It’s The Economy Dummie

March 27, 2011

Just 10% of American adults rate the U.S. economy as good or excellent. Fifty-two percent (52%) say it’s in poor shape.
The Rasmussen Investor Index gained three points on Sunday after falling four points the day  before. At 95.7, the Investor Index is up six from a week ago, up eight from a month ago, and up one from the beginning of the year.

Among all adults, just 21% believe that today’s children will be better off than their parents.

What if Bush Were President?

March 27, 2011

from Politico:

JAKE TAPPER, guest-anchoring “This Week,” to Gates: “Do you think we’ll be gone [from the Libya operation] by the end of the year – will the mission be over by the end of the year?”

GATES: “I don’t think anybody knows the answer.”

Shouldn’t the President?

Our Only True Friend-Israel

March 25, 2011

The last 30 years or so have been relatively peaceful for Israel compared to the previous 30 years. It is unlikely to remain that way for long.

Syria long worried about money and Lebanon is now starting to fray, the Assads were demonic but predictable.

Lebanon has become a Hezbollah figurine full of Iranian influence.

Egypt thanks to our feckless President is awash in instability for its political future.

Jordan has always been a make believe Kingdom and country using CIA money to keep the Hashemites happy.

Iran by default is the regional power who will always pursue destabilizing other regimes to strengthen their own lot.

If we only had a leader in the White House.

Kinetic Action

March 25, 2011

The sadness of America  has hit a new low as the new term from Obama’s team is Kinetic  Military Action.

Are you serious? Everything the military does that matters is kinetic whether it is peace time or combat.

Kinetic Energy I believe is KE= 1/2 m(v )squared so if you go by pure math yes there is kinetic energy any time a missile or round is launched.

When their is a vacuum of leadership you don’t use war you use sillyterms.

Civil Unions, SB 30 Is Wrong

March 23, 2011

“SB 30 is a flawed and unnecessary bill. The reported legal protections and rights are logical and can be dealt with outside of this legislation. It attempts to create a parallel path to marriage when there can be no parallel to marriage. Over 300 years of American History supports this claim.
Not every marriage lasts forever nor does it produce children but the institution remains the foundation of the family in this country.

Homosexuals demand public affirmation of their relationships which are rightly protected by law as relationships between consenting adults but the flawed attempt at this affirmation by inching toward obliterating any distinctions between homosexual unions and heterosexual unions of any kind is wrongheaded.
Our sincere hope is Gov Markell will spend all of his time securing a better financial future for this state and a better economic future for Delawareans. ”

Another Investment

March 23, 2011

The Andy Griffith ad promoting Obamacare last year cost taxpayers $3.66 million – including $404,000 in production.

The expense of patrolling the no-fly zone once it is established is likely to be $30 million to $100 million a week.

The administration’s own top actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in Washington now estimates that the health care law will increase national health care costs by $311 billion.
