The president's press conference last week must have been psychological disinformation to confuse our enemies. It simply couldn't be the case that "we don't have a strategy for dealing with ISIS" and that he would voluntarily announce to the world--and to the bad guys--that "we don't have a strategy yet," and that he'll talk to our allies about hashing out a strategy when they all meet next month, because apparently he doesn't have a telephone to talk to them any sooner.

I mean, that just couldn't all be true, right? That's some impressive psy-ops, Mr. President! What a relief. Here I thought you were feckless and clueless

I guess the difference between being encouraged to "coexist" or being admonished to stop waging "war against women" depends on whether you pour acid on women's faces or you resist being mandated to buy their birth control.

Obviously the latter is uncivilized.

Teens think their life is hard (because life is), and they misperceive that their parents have reached some kind of you-can-coast-the-rest-of-the-way-from-here stasis.

Parents sometimes think teens have it easy (because they forget how hard it was) and they don't appreciate all the difficulties.

I'm pretty sure this human tension and need for empathy and growth is not a random accident of physics in the universe.

Germany thought they were a free democratic republic until they weren't. Venezuela thought they were a free democratic republic until they weren't.

Why do American liberals think America is so exceptional? Bad stuff can happen here, too. We can run out of toilet paper as fast as those poor buggers in South America. If the political order and social order break down, we'll all suffer. The US government, protected liberties, give it a chance.

The Obama Presidency is like The Trueman Show. 100% created by the media.

Argued with some liberals recently about whether a president could really hate America. Riddle me this: Why would anyone suspect this president holds more affection for America than his minister, Jeremiah Wright, his mentor Bill Ayers, or his commie mom and her lovers?

Why is it so offensive to say what is obvious?

No, Progressives. Not gonna surrender America. There needs to be at least one nation that shows how much better people thrive in freedom rather than control.
