Here We Go: Ted Cruz Revs 2016 Engine

That's wonderful... but Reagan had a bit more going for him than simply Conservative rhetoric. He had 2 terms of growth and prosperity as California's Governor. Nobody is saying Cruz is not a great Conservative. But some of us really want to see some evidence that he is also a great Executive. A few trial cases and a lot of rhetoric do not display that. I want him to have actually balanced a few budgets. To have dealt with hostile legislatures and to have had to be the go to guy managing crisis. Obama is the perfect example of what happens when we don't insist on these qualifications.

Don't we already have an overly ideological first term Senator with no concept of rational reasonable governance in the White House? What in God's Holy Name makes Cruz, Paul and Rubio think we have any interest in going that route again? If Cruz wants my vote for President he would best serve at least 4 years in the Texas Governors Mansion.
So the President is saying he will personally and singlehandedly shut down and defund the national security apparatus if Congress does not go along with his illegal and unconstitutional declaration of amnesty for 10 million invaders? Within a week of the Paris massacres? Well done Obama! That's gonna play real well in Peoria.
I was kind of wondering that. I mean this is the line between DC and the Pentagon! Having had some experience in large cities Emergency Services this astonishes me? I've seen the MTA drill. And they run this particular drill quite regularly. And 45 minutes to evacuate a stuck train in heavy smoke is obscene. Was it in a tunnel under the river? (NY has special engines intended to rush in and push or pull stuck trains out of harms way.) Not knowing the point of origin is even more disturbing? Once again this is the train that goes to the Pentagon!!! But yeah! Let's make DC it's own state! Cause they have what it takes...
We are all Charlie... except our Executive branch of our Government? Bravo! So much for Liberte and Fraternity with our oldest and probably best national ally.
The most hilarious thing about all of thise, has anyone ever offered up or even looked at any actual long term environmental impact studies regarding styrofoam vs other replacement materials? Because what few I have looked at seem more or less mixed regarding the benefits of banning the stuff. Heck apprently paper recylcling uses far more energy and does far more chemical damage both short and long term than styrofoam. Paper decomposes and as it does it leeches out all kinds of fun stuff.
And yet somehow good old Eugene fails to realize that if someone other than the terrorists had been armed in France, up to and including the police, there would be a lot fewer dead people today.

The World's Worst Law

The article missed one of the worst and most obvious yet least appreciated elements of the One Child Policy. After 3 Generations of it China or rather the Chinese Communist Government cannot engage in any war that is not a clear and unequivocal defense of the Chinese mainland and survive. That is the hilarity of all of their modern military bluster. At heart China is still a Confuscionist culture. "Family First". Every bullet that is fired at the Chinese Military not simply kills a soldier. It unequivocally ends a Chinese Family line. Every bullet, every missile causes the permanent loss of the most precious and protected thing in the culture. Western governments normal aversion to military losses is nothing compared to what the Communist Government of China faces.

Confirmed: Barbara Boxer to Retire

So Boxer announces her retirement plans as the Senate shifts from her parties control. Hmmm? The pessimist in me wonders what manner of Senate Ethics investigation does she fear under GOP Senate control?

Dear GOP candidates. Do not go soft on this one. Shout to the heavens Bill Clinton + convicted pedophile + tropical island underage sex slave orgies. Get the word out. Let the voters come to their own conclusions re; war on women.
