Has Obama Flipped His Lid? We Need To Know.

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Russia has seized the Crimea. 50,000 Russian troops are sitting on the eastern border of the Ukraine ready to strike at the least provocation. Russia has abrogated the 1994 Budapest Memorandum in which the Ukraine agreed to give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for its  territorial integrity guaranteed by the United States, the United Kingdom and Russia.

And now it has been revealed that Russia is violating the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty that bans the testing, production, and possession of nuclear missiles with a range between 310 and 3400 miles. In the face of all that, the Pentagon announced yesterday drastic cuts to US nuclear forces four years AHEAD of schedule in accordance with the 2010 New Start treaty with Russia!! And  Russia already is known to have a 4 to 1 numerical  superiority in tactical nuclear weapons.

And on top of this, the United States has already announced it is cutting back on the size of its army, navy and air force back to 1940 levels!! One must wonder on whose side the Obama administration is on?  What is happening here is frightening and utterly beyond all understanding. Somehow the American people need to know the answer to this existential question.

Poor Paul Ryan

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

The Democrats are in the process of cutting poor Paul Ryan up into tiny bits of right wing offal. Lead, of course, by the usual suspects: Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and coming up the rear multiple  Democrats in the House and Senate. They have accused Paul Ryan of racism because he had the temerity to say that a significant part of the culture of the inner cities appears to consist of many men deciding not to work, not to get married, often leaving multiple pregnant mothers of their soon-to-be-born children to fend for themselves.  The word culture. That’s it. That’s more important than anything else since it encompasses everything important that we are as a people. Hey, “ain’t” that grand? Paul Ryan is a racist for saying it “ain’t” what America used to be and that it was bad for all those inner-city  folks to have children out of wedlock, no fathers in the home, increasing dependency on the federal government rather than on  the values of work.

But Ryan  Is right. No, it’s not grand, and who suffers?  80% or more of those who live in the inner city ––– Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians –––  they want a better life for themselves and their kids. They want the culture to change.They want to work, move up economically, have their kids go to safe schools that teach ––– not serve as places of gang terror. These 80%ers want their sons and daughters to grow up and access the American dream as I did and many of my generation.

Who created the mess? This was a result of the “Great Society” programs that destroyed the black family structure and handed over the same sort of rot to the immigrants that flooded in during the last half of the 20th century.

“Tough love” is very “tough” to achieve, but the only way to put us back on a road to prosperity for all. We need  leaders on the national and state and local levels who understand how difficult the task will be.We need a new Congress, and for heavens sake, a new president, to help lead us out of our domestic mess and our foreign policy debacles. “Tough love” for everyone!  It will require efforts from all of us. We all need to hurt a little bit or a lot, to sacrifice a little or a lot, to right the ship.It will be tough to do whether we live in the inner city or the suburbs, in penthouses and mansions or in row houses and tiny apartments. Tough love isn’t easy ––– but Americans have to do it to reverse our descent into hell. TO BRING BACK AMERICA!

So I’m back and that’s my rant for today. Tell me what you think.

Back Home on the Blogosphere

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Hey,  you few, adventurous, and extremely intelligent fans who occasionally visit my blog, I am back. Have spent 2 1/2 precious months of my life moving, i.e. transferring my overbloated existence to another nest––– another place to experience the existential–––  whatever that means.

During that time, I kept my eyes open the ever-passing scene we call the “news” or rather the “olds” or perhaps more appropriately, the “lies.”

Nothing much changed. Obama got a break, as usual. His buddy Putin  decided to re-enact Europe 1938. But, Putin “ ain’t” Hitler. He’s worse. More dangerous. He’s got nuclear weapons, biologic weapons, chemical weapons, and is clearly smarter than Obama (Churchhill and Roosevelt were smarter than Hitler, but didn’t do much better either, did they?).

If Reagan or  George W  were president, I doubt that Putin would be performing an  “Adolf” on the big screen. But what the hell. It took the heat off of Barack H. Almost nobody’s talking about ObamaCare anymore and his Democrats are playing a new game: dismantling Paul Ryan. More on that on the post that follows.
