Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Hey, I want to laugh as much as the next person. I try to cut up here to make things a bit more easy and to keep our heads from exploding. There is much going on in the news of late. We are learning about cells in European countries that are being rounded up after the Paris ordeal. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia just died. This has a great impact on the stability of that region. At the same time, Obama’s buddy who has made Yemen an ally of the West, has been ousted from office and the country is about to go into drastic turmoil. Iran is believed to be of great influence in all the region and could drastically change the landscape. It is still continuing to develop its nuclear program while Obama gives away everything. In the meanwhile, the new Congress is having the Israeli PM speak to Congress about the Iran situation where Congress may act to instill sanctions back on Iran. This is just a little peek of what has happened in the last 72 hours.

So what is gaining traction in the news? A story about the Patriots dropping a pound or two of air pressure out of their footballs while playing the Colts. It is forefront in most broadcasts and seems to be earth shattering. Or how about this story about a comedian that gets to do an interview with Obama. Not only did the WH staff not vet the individual, but if they had, I don’t think he would have wasted his time since there is TOO MUCH IMPORTANT STUFF GOING ON ELSEWHERE. Am I making too much of this or is this just another showing about how upside down the news and this world is. I would like to have a good laugh but not before we rid ourselves of some of the things that are affecting my and my children’s security and way of life. The real news that is happening is not just something you blow off or dismiss. I wonder when our news corps will ever regain the people’s trust or their lost integrity?

On the occasion of this Martin Luther King Holiday:

You might think that with the recent ISLAMIC terror attack on the people of France, the world would be more outraged by these people and want to reign in the “nice talk” and “nice deeds” towards them. Charlie Hebdo magazine produced its most recent copy with Mohammed on the front and the caption “All Is Forgiven”. Who is forgiving who? Seems a pretty dumb statement however you twist it around. But it isn’t as dumb as what Obama did last night. He released 5 MORE GITMO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, bringing the total to 20 since December 8th. He did this in light of what just happened in France. Why?
It would appear that Obama believes these detainees to be combatants from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and therefor need to be released since those wars are declared “over”. I thought these detainees were ISLAMIC TERRORISTS and I don’t know that their war was declared over. Matter of fact, I don’t know that Obama has ever admitted that there is a war on terror. Just another nail for his coffin. Problem being, no one seems to care enough to DO anything about it.

On another stupid note, it appears that Duke University wants to continue with its “political correctness” stance, as well its anti-Christian stance, by allowing a Friday Muslim call to prayer. Hum. What could possibly be wrong with this picture?

If you don’t have an understanding about what is going on with oil and prices, you need to get in tune. It is important to make a reasonable evaluation on where you stand on this issue and how you will act accordingly. Here is a very good article to cover most bases.

I find this a golden opportunity to start re-organizing some of these “unfriendly” nations. When you look at what compromises OPEC, you will see that they aren’t “friends” of democracy. It also greatly affects Russia, who has been doing some heinous crimes against a sovereign nation. It is a very complex issue when it concerns trades and investments among nations. I look at what outcomes can come to pass for North America. Here is some of what I see:
–becoming energy independent
–ridding ourselves of the ethanol boondoggle
–bringing about cheaper and better goods thru more in-house
manufacturing
–further strengthening of our economy
–nations forced to move to a freer economy
–socialism crumbling under its own, unsustained weight
–reducing the risk for others to make war
This is just quick and brief. I see so many good outcomes from this. Much of this has to come about in conjunction with stopping ALL immigration, which at this time shows no need and necessity, as well as securing the borders (yes, even the one with Canada). Cheaper goods is not the answer when quality is required. Funding war and terrorism is not the answer when we can enhance pay scale and quality of life. Too many win-win scenarios here but I’m sure there will be rain on my parade from not thinking too far out. All that can be resolved without much pain. Energy fuels a society. Energy also prompts and promotes invention and ingenuity. The problem here is getting those in charge to take initiative and make it happen. Some corporations need to be forced in-line rather than being coddled and catered to. One government institution needs to be reigned in to make it work……that would be the EPA. The one organization that hurts our economy.

Well hush my mouth and knock me over with a feather. It appears that Chairman (ahem) Scott York will NOT be running for another term as chairman. I guess all bridges are burned and the “I’m a conservative RINO” mantra is as transparent as air. Now I don’t have to worry about voting for someone other than York and getting beat to a pulp by Joe B. It appears that Charles King, who you might remember defended the Hon. Eugene Delgaudio from a tripe liberal lawsuit that even this board acted upon wrongfully, will be running as a conservative republican for the seat. Not only did it cause York to cry “uncle”, it has caused Buona (who should be voted out of office post haste) to back down to just holding on to his Ashburn seat. Read up on Buona and tell me what you think about his being 2nd in command at TELOS, causing our tax dollars to go to HIS company to keep them from moving out of the county. Fox in the henhouse? I have other “terms” that come to mind. And Williams seeking the chair? Not only is he a one time supervisor and a mini-me York, he can’t think on his own.

I am so happy about this news. Does Randall have a chance? Sure she does. She has some good creds BUT she is a Dem and looking to pour MORE money into education, when an overhaul and some smart evaluation is basically what is needed. King is up to the task. Is the county serious about getting its house in order other than just voting people who say that they are “R”s? I still believe in the best candidate at the time. Usually an R was always expected to be X. Now you don’t know what you will get. I believe it far past time to start picking by record and history. People have a hard time covering that up. I would vote for a LaRouche candidate with the right creds!! Well, maybe not. :smile:

Brief thoughts on President Obama’s proposal to offer free community college. Such a policy would likely to result in:

- Devalued credentials leading to INCREASED employer demand for MORE credentials. An associates degree would quickly become the equivalent of a high school diploma.

- Increased credentialism in what has become a vain, status seeking society.

- Community College is nearly free as it is

I know you have been looking for a post that you could comment on. Heaven knows that we can’t seem to find something to fit your needs. So here is the standard dumping post where anything goes and all is allowed. If you think Howard Dean is an idiot for calling ISIS a cult instead of the hideous Islamic terror group that it is, well then call it out. If you think Obama is a lying asshole for saying he wants to work in co-operation with the new Congress, yet threatens vetoes before the Congress has a chance to present any passed bills, well then call it out. Maybe you are tired of NYC mayor DeBlastio crapping on his police department. Maybe you don’t like the childish speaker Boner pulling conservatives that voted against him, from committee assignments. Maybe you just don’t like the way I do things or crap on others. Whatever it is, and if it doesn’t fit the other posts that we put out there, well then call it out HERE. Have fun and may the peaceful Christian God be with you. If you don’t like my last statement, well then stick it in your ear and then call it out here. :smile:
