“There You Go Again”

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks, finishing the ‘LIST’ of things-that-must-be-done before cold weather sets in. We never quite finish the ‘LIST’, which I vow every year to complete. This year is no different. I’ve come to the conclusion the ‘LIST’ will never be finished and I may as well stop fretting about it. When one owns a home built in 1895, there is always going to be a ‘LIST’ and, it will never be finished.

What good is it to spy on emails if the spies are too stupid to act on what they’ve read……. anyone?

Reports concerning the FBI and Nidal Hasan have emerged showing the deaths at Fort Hood were totally preventable. Breitbart has the whole sordid story

More evidence is piling up against the FBI when it comes to Nidal Hasan, the Army Major convicted for the mass killing of over a dozen people in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting. …..[snip]

FBI officials always claimed the documents proved little, but they would not allow the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee to review them. Even without these documents, however, the committee established in their report “A Ticking Timebomb: Counterterrorism Lessons from the U.S. Government’s Failure to Prevent the Fort Hood Attack”that officials had enough evidence to stop Hasan.

Looks like Syria has been added to the Obama hit list. Obama is making it known they are the next target. How stupid is that? He has told Assad where he plans on bombing to inflict a precise amount of pain and chaos. So, if I were Assad I would be moving planes, Royal Guard and other weapons of war out of reach of those cruise missiles. But, the bright boys in the White House probably think Assad is too stupid to do that. Moving weapons to schools and hospital facilities is not beneath the tyrant of Damascus. Obama boxed himself in by drawing those “red lines” on Syria. Maybe he thinks those four battleships, each capable of carrying 90 cruise missiles, will scare Assad into ending the slaughter on both sides. It isn’t going to happen. 75 R-words and 12 D-words have signed a letter to insist Obama keeps Congress in the loop. But, BO cares more about what the UN thinks then what the US Congress thinks. The can of worms this may open up would make Libya and Egypt look like a cake-walk in comparison.

Obama remained cautious about getting  involved in a war that has killed more than 100,000 people and now includes  Hezbollah and al-Qaida.

He made no mention of the ‘red line’ of  chemical weapons use that he marked out for Syrian President Bashar Assad a year  ago and that U.S. intelligence says has been breached at least on a small scale  several times since.

‘If the U.S. goes in and attacks another  country without a U.N. mandate and without clear evidence that can be presented,  then there are questions in terms of whether international law supports it – do  we have the coalition to make it work?’ Obama said Friday. ‘Those are  considerations that we have to take into account.’

The celebration of “Doc” King is good for our country. He wanted us to live with each other in harmony and prosperity. While this celebration is happening, let’s also remind others what Dr. King admonished his people to also do. In spite of race baiters and hatemongers, the majority are doing exactly that, living with each other in harmony. We’re all still waiting for the prosperity part. The original march was named “The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom“.

But  there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold  which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful  place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our  thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and  hatred.

The question is; Where do we go from here?

“The civil rights struggle is over, and it is won,” Williams said. “Now, I’m not  saying that every vestige of discrimination has been eliminated, but the civil  rights struggle is over and won. At one time, black Americans did not have the  constitutional guarantees of everybody else. Now we do. The fact that the civil  rights struggle is over and won does not mean that there are not major problems  that black Americans face, but they’re not civil rights problems. And if we view  them as civil rights problems, the solutions will be elusive forever.”

  1. I listened to a lot of it…boy, the building anticipation for what was billed as a speech that would surely equal MLK’s. Pah…he tried and blah, blah, blah…nothing. I thought this was the highlight…these young ladies were enjoying every minute, kudos to them!

    • ^5 …..yes indeed!

      • I didn’t really expect to see them, but it is noted that the Wee Wons were not in attendance. What a shame their mother doesn’t want them to experience these events…

        • Take note, not one black moderate or conservative was invited to speak….Justice Thomas, Senator Scott (the ONLY black Senator) Dr. Carson, Thomas Sowell, …..not one.
          The girls don’t live in that world….most kids don’t.

  2. People forget…need reminding

    America does not have a labor shortage. With roughly 7 million people unemployed, and double that number discouraged from seeking work, the removal of employer sanctions threatens to add additional U.S. workers to the rolls and drive down wages. Moreover, the repeal of employer sanctions will inevitably add to our social problems and place an unfair burden on the poor in the cities in which most new immigrants cluster—cities which are already suffering housing shortages and insufficient human needs services.

  3. A short summary on the current players in the ME ….

    A recent letter to the editor in the Financial Times neatly summarizes the challenge, in that neighborhood, of separating the bad from the really bad:

    “Sir, Iran is backing Assad. Gulf states are against Assad!

    “Assad is against Muslim Brotherhood. Muslim Brotherhood and Obama are against General Sisi.

    “But Gulf states are pro-Sisi! Which means they are against Muslim Brotherhood!

    “Iran is pro-Hamas, but Hamas is backing Muslim Brotherhood!

    “Obama is backing Muslim Brotherhood, yet Hamas is against the U.S.!

    “Gulf states are pro-U.S. But Turkey is with Gulf states against Assad; yet Turkey is pro-Muslim Brotherhood against General Sisi. And General Sisi is being backed by the Gulf states!

    “Welcome to the Middle East, and have a nice day”

  4. The Powell Doctrine…supported by both Doves and Hawks…..Syria doesn’t pass the test

    Powell set forth several conditions for the commander-in-chief to meet before using the military. A military mission, according to Powell, must first and foremost be vital to our national security. The mission should be clearly defined, have an exit strategy, use overwhelming force to achieve its objective and enjoy popular domestic support.
