The GOP Needs to Reconsider Defense Spending

As one can tell from the demands of and by people who should know better that wars can be won by spying on ourselves, and by all other GOP candidates to increase defense spending, Rand has not come close to convincing the GOP candidates and voters that increasing our military spending is not useful. All the others want to build a bigger DoD and send our men to kill their men – but not to win.

A question in two parts. But context is needed, context ignored by those who support the standard GOP response to anything military: Build a […]

The Politics of a post-9/11 Internet World

We are witnessing a sea change in our politics, and outside of a few – Rand, Cruz, Trump, Bernie – no one is noticing…

Cruz is calling out the liars in his own party. McCain is berating GOP senators supporting the Constitution. McConnell is lying to his team in order to pass anti-limited government legislation.

Rand is saying – ya know what? The 10th Amendment really does exist, and, no, we don’t need to police the world.

Bernie is cleaning Hillary’s clock with her own base.

The GOP base can’t stand Jeb Bush.

Walker is […]

An Integrated Worldview – First in an Intermittent Series: More European war.

I have noted often the inability of most people to think two-three steps ahead when commenting on issues. People demand Social Security be fixed…but vote for Democrats.

Logic, history, consequences and forethought seem to play no part in their behavior.

In a recent discussion, another noted that he had identified the same problem; he termed it lack of an “integrated world view.”

My purpose in this post is to integrate a few – only a few – issues […]

Obama & the Democrats: Freedom’s Enemy

America under Obama & the Democrats has become the world’s new USSR, the enemies of freedom globally. Brazil and the EU now are running an entirely new – and entirely unnecessary – undersea comm cable just to get around spying by the USA. Not even the USSR acted with such disregard for other nations.

But – Obama SAID he won’t spy anymore! Yeah – and he SAID you could keep your doctor. He doesn’t even CARE anymore that everyone knows he’s lying.

ANYONE still thinking we lead the “Free” World is NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

To Americans who value freedom and […]

A Story of Three Countries

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, […]
