GOP Bordering On Victory

Yeah, the Establishment GOP hacks are pretty much super-glued on stupid. They have an uncanny record of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. You'd think that at SOME point they'd finally wise up.
Though many of the points that Paul makes are valid, he misses one MAJOR point in a very big way: It doesn't really matter much whether or not we're interested in waging war on the jihadis. THEY'VE already decided that THEY'RE waging war on US. This is where the doctrinaire and extreme Libertarians just completely miss the boat, Paul particularly. Our country doesn't exist in a vacuum, insulated from any actions which we don't first "initiate" ourselves. We occupy one spot on a planet-wide stage filled with other actors with their own agendas, and who feel perfectly free to act UPON us whether or not we like it. We weren't at war with anyone when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941. We weren't at war with anyone when the Twin Towers were felled on 11 Sep 2001. And yet those events happened anyway. One of the first things you learn in the military is that no matter how well you make your battle (or any other) plans, the other guy gets a say in them, too, whether or not you like it. Paul's column illustrates the typical abject ignorance of the Middle East/North African/Islamic mentality so common to people who have never actually LIVED in the region. It's incomprehensible to the Western cultural mindset. The jihadis don't need a "reason" as we think of it. They don't approve of us: our culture; our lifestyle; that we're "heretics"; that we have more than they do; that we're not part of their "clan"; that we're "depraved"; none of it. And THAT'S reason enough as far as they're concerned, and why we're The Great Satan. Paul needs to try to wrap his head around THAT. Because they ain't gonna quit. They understand exactly one thing: force.
Here's an excellent WSJ article, actually written by guy who was previously a member of the Obozo administration... but THIS guy actually has real scientific objectivity and credibility. What a shocker! http://online.wsj.com/articles/climate-science-is-not-settled-1411143565?ru=yahoo?mod=yahoo_itp
Kerry is dumber than a bag of hammers. Whenever the topic of “climate change” comes up, there are some questions I usually pose, and which the climate hysterics can never seem to answer, to wit: Given: The planet's climate is a dynamic system; it's been changing for the planet's entire 4+ billion year history; and it will continue to change until the planet dies. That’s indisputable. Question: How are we supposed to quantify what all of these Draconian taxes and other social engineering mandates are actually accomplishing in comparison to the natural climate change that would be taking place anyway? Question: What's "natural" climate change as opposed to "man-made" climate change, and how do you quantify and define each? Question: Are you seriously saying you can actually STOP the climate from changing? Question: If you really are taking the preposterous position that you can stop the climate from ever changing again, aside from your standardized cliché hyperbole what makes you think that THIS is the "ideal" climate at which to do so? Why doesn’t the “climate change” lobby ever address any of those questions, hmm...?
This kind of BS is EXACTLY why I quit the GOP and became in Independent after almost 40 years. I literally can't stand the Establishment GOP hacks -- the PSP, as I call them (Perpetually Stupid Party) -- and think they're almost as bad as the Dem/socialists.
Obozo is clearly qualified to be Commander-In-Chief...... of a Girl Scout Troop.
LOL! Yeah. I mixed up my blonde Simpsons.
What a silly column. There were a helluva lot of problems 75 or 100 years ago we don't need to worry about anymore. When was the last time you had to worry about stepping in a pile of horse dung in the middle of the street? Or standing on the wrong place when someone emptied their chamber pot out the window? The fact of the matter is that that was then, and this is now, and race riots ARE a phenomenon of the minority communities. That's just a fact. Two events in Los Angeles. 1 - The cops are found "Not Guilty" of a beatdown of thug Rodney King. Downtown LA erupts in riots and looting that don't abate for days, so bad that for about 3 days even the cops won't go into the area. 2 - OJ Simpson is found "Not Guilty" of brutally murdering Ron Goldman and Jessica Simpson with a knife, virtually decapitating them. Beverly Hills erupts into riots and looting...... Oooops..... Didn't happen....

Yep. Good ole Obozo, a legend in his own mind.

"America needs immigrants." America DOESN'T need more maids and gardeners and busboys and day laborers and burger-flippers, none of whom can speak English. This is where Stossel and the rest of the whack wing of the Libertarians just have their heads firmly buried where the sun never shines.
