How about some rationality?
Obama shook hands with Raul Castro this morning at the memorial of that S African terrorist and communist Mandela.Some people got their panties in a bunch. Now – to be sure – I hate Obama & his policies as much as anyone and more than most, so this isn’t about Obie.
And some are gonna get all hot n bothered about moral equivalence here. I’m making no such statement. I am strictly talking about historical analogies.
How the world works: With one exception all nations were created by force. From England kicking everyone’s ass (France, Scotland, […]
1. Against ALL conventions of Application Development, neither System nor User Requirements EVER were fixed. In the app development world this means Obamacare NEVER had a set of Requirements that could be architected, designed, coded or tested. AND THE DEVELOPERS KNEW THIS; IT’S WHAT THEY DO. It is not ‘the website did not work,’ it is ‘the website COULD not work.’ That is a non-trivial difference that cost the taxpayers – so far – over $600M.
2. ONE of the high-level requirements that never existed was SECURITY of the […]
The clash between islam and the West has NOTHING to do with religion. People must grasp the problem before it can be dealt with successfully. As long as our policymakers and pundits pretend the point of conflict is religion, the West remains handicapped by our legacy of religious freedom.
This clash is no more about freedom of religion than was the clash between advancing European settlers and indigenous tribes in North America in the 19th Century. The clash is of culture: Pre-Modern v. Modern.
People unaware of history – a cohort that now seems to include all our policymakers […]
Pundits fantasize that Obama cares about his low poll numbers. How did he respond this week to his record lows? Said he’d do immigration via Exec Order, announcing plans to again violate the Constitution and Separation of Powers.
Why not? No one has stopped him before.
Obama DOES NOT CARE about his poll numbers, or those of his party. ANYONE and EVERYONE fantasizing that he does, that his low numbers will force him to change, is refusing to pay attention. This is intentional ignorance. People yammer about the midterms as though losing the Senate will cause Obama to mend his […]
People need to put a couple of things into perspective here.
1. Obama is trashing – and destroying – the Constitution, grabbing imperial powers of which Nixon only dreamed. But we got rid of Nixon because the opposition understood their role, the Constitution and how to play the game. That the GOP lacks all three is past obvious.
a. Obama, early in his first term, had ZERO authority to decide DOMA was unconstitutional and not enforce it as the law. The ONLY Constitutional charge the president has other than war is to ensure the laws are faithfully executed. Failing to […]
Everything these cops are doing is illegal.
Everything they are doing is abuse of a citizen excersing his FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS.
Everything they are doing is abuse of power under color of authority.
Everything they are doing is in violation of everything it means to BE an American.
When is enough ENOUGH?!?
THIS is Horseshit.
Those of us who had parents or grandparents fight in WW2? They fought AGAINST this crap.
Our forefathers NEVER would have accepted THIS in AMERICA.
WHY ARE WE?!?
Islam – that pre-modern barbaric tribal culture of killing everyone outside the tribe, as did most pre-moderns (check your anthropology), of treating women as chattel lower than dogs (which they also despise) – ‘marrying’ 6-yr-old girls, raping 1-yr old girls, whipping to death 14-yr-old girls for being rape victims, killing your daughter for looking at a boy, killing your wife for going out of the house without wearing her tent, throwing acid in the face of girls trying to get an education, prohibiting women from driving & holding office and even walking alone, requiring two female witnesses for every male […]
Americans, a very large portion of them, continue to believe that Obama is “failing” or “incompetent” or some derivative thereof. The GOP leadership believes it is beating Obama at checkers. Obama isn’t playing checkers; he is playing chess. And he is destroying the GOP… and America.
Obama’s economic policies, for example, are working for him, as are his foreign policy and his healthcare policy and his destruction of the Constitution. People fail to grasp this fundamental fact and discuss instead his “failures” his “incompetency,” and his “being in over his head.” ALL of these critiques are what he wants, they […]
