What the women of Syria think about the men leaving them behind

You won’t see this sort of report from the typical news outlet:

I don’t think that many know that those streaming into Europe are mostly men of military age.

Our One Party Government

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

I’ve often told my partisan friends, you know what I’m talking about, the ardent Republicans and Democrats, that we have a system of one party government here in the U.S.

This lead up to taking action against Syria should leave you with no doubt that we have a one party government. The R’s and D’s are just factions within that one party.

MSNBC: The Place for War?

Yeah, I known it’s Breitbart, but still. Go read that stuff.

I long ago gave up satellite/cable tv, so I don’t watch the news shows. I don’t really thing I’m missing anything either.

I will say that after, I don’t know 2005?, 2006? the left and the libertarians convinced me the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were wrong and leading nowhere. Here in 2013, they were obviously correct.

But now those bozos on the left (Chris Matthews?) want to go to Syria? For what compelling national interest? Just because Obama said something foolish about a red line?

Up until the alleged chemical attack of last week, about 100,000 people were killed in the Syrian civil war. 500 have died by chemical/gas weapons. It is not even a sure thing the chemical weapons were used by the regime. They may have been used by the “rebels.”

This is beyond stupid.

Couldn’t have said it better.

Oddly, Parliament may have more influence on whether we use military force than our own Congress.

Gun Control

From the wisdom of The Crimson Reach:


What is up with our government? Getting involved in Syria? Arming Al Qaeda? Seriously?

It is hugely disappointing how bad Obama has turned out to be in the areas that I thought he would be good in. He really is a crappy liberal. By crappy liberal, please take it to mean he’s not being liberal in any traditional sense.
