What is his handicap? That should tell the rest of the story.
Wars are won and lost by restraints place on the armed forces sent In harms way. Vietnam was a leading example of not letting the armed forces of the United States do what they were trained and equipped to do. Congress when they authorize the use of armed force should then retire and let the armed forces complete the mission their were sent to do, nation building can begin once the armed forces have secured the battle field and the population. Every time congress mettles in a conflict it will be lost or otherwise compromised. Our armed forces are not the police of the world their mission is to secured our nation from attack and keep the sea lanes open for commerce to flow.

ISIS 'A National Security Threat'

ISIS is a security threat when they hit our shores, that's why we guard our borders and coast lines against invasion. Did I miss something here? Ah, yes our borders and coast lines are not secure because congress refuses to hold the chief executive to the dictates of the laws congress laid down and he refuses to enforce.

Over-Covering Ferguson

This is a local issue, not national until the like of Sharpton, Holder and Obama get involved and first on the scene is Sharpton after he sent in his posse to get things stirred up, and the media does more to exacerbate the issue than anything else. Remember the day before 24 hour news coverage, about three segments a day not endless dribble, when news was local not national.

First the call went out from Sharpton to his posse, get to Ferguson, get things stirred up and I will be there shortly and the story unfolds from there. Now the biggest racist in the federal government shows up, what shoe will drop next?
Lest we forget, police no whether local, county, state or federal are there to serve the people not control them; the Progressives would like to see control as their main agenda that is why those Progressives in Washington have deemed it necessary to militarize local, county, state and federal agencies so they can exercise control to move their agenda along to Democracy and the people shall not complain when they find out. What the Progressives do not understand is, if they succeed in turning our Constitutional Republic into a Democracy they will be the cannon fodder of the Socialist, Marxists and Communists who are their coattail groups today.
I am not too sure, her list of dead is probably longer than Obama's.
The are not immigrants, they are illegal aliens please get it right and stop carrying the message for the Progressive Movement.

Navy Removes Bibles From Guest Rooms

First is was the Army, then the Air Force, now the Navy. Our country was founded on Christian theology, it was not founded on anyone Christian denomination, and that where the Progressive go wrong in their agenda. When you read out founding documents it basically says the government shall not establish a government church, separation of church and state has taken on a whole new meaning in the Progressive Movements agenda fundamentally alter our country and our constitution without ever going through the amendment process. Finally bibles are put in hotel/motel guest rooms for those that choose to read the bible while there hotel policy does not say you shall read the bible staying at our hotel, and hotel does not provide those bibles the Gideon and other religious organizations do that through their outreach programs. I, as a Retired Senior Chief Petty Officer, find the Navy's action in this case a disgrace on the heritage of the United States Navy.
Remember the Bay Bridge mess well. I left San Diego in February 1991, after 36 years, and moved to the Bay Area, I retired again in June 1995 and moved out of CA; like a previous blogger said, I only miss the sun shine in addition to my still living friends, most of my friends in CA are now dead from age and drinking too much. Didn't do drugs we have enough problems with alcohol. We still have children living there and someday they will understand what drove us out. The article above is a good example but not the only one by any stretch of the imagination. Bad politics (if there are any good politics), bad government, corruption at all levels and taxation at all levels are the driving force for emigration from CA. See who is flocking to CA as opposed to leaving CA and you have yet another answer for not going there.
