Glib 'Happy Talk'

I would love to add to that WWI, and often ignored war. Not only did it directly lead to WW2 it also. WWI not only sowed ignorance of our leaders (something which Biasat seen 50 years prior), but more importantly the ignorance of the public. It wasn't till War was waaaay under way that people realize that "hey we are at war". I hold no delusions that ISIS has a chance against modern military. Those are ultimately savages, that can use some modern equipment, but never to the level the West. However ISIS with a Nuke? or ISIS while Iran and Israel goes to war? How about Iran getting involved with war with Israel, drawing US into it, which might draw Russia which would draw in China..etc.. Likely scenarios are everywhere, and we are sitting on a keg. Only question is what will explode it.
Really? Reagan passed a bill, sign it and enforced it? Well wow! Learn something new everyday. What obama done is amnesty by any other name, because that is the result. Difference is that nobody passed that bill he just chose to do it. Hence what obama done is illegal.
Oh look it is a "she" and a "black" I am sure it is coincidence. Sometimes I wonder if Left ever realizes just how racist and sexists they really are. For those who are going to say "maybe she was chosen because she was a best candidate". Please! Just like the Wise Latina was?

Early Presidential Prospects

The popularity of Congress is a misnomer. While it is true that as a whole most people tend to dislike Congress, when a poll of their individual representative is taken this number tends to reverse. Hence it is the old fashion "Mine is good and yours sucks" mentality.
Hate that you can't edit, Heart should be hurt.
+1 I am Polish as well and heart plenty of "Polish Jokes". So? Calling me stupid doesn't make me so, just like calling me Chicken doesn't turn me into an Avian. The only person who can offend you with words is.. yourself. Words only have that meaning which we assign to it, if I call you a "huj" would you be offended? Our kids are far too sheltered and they aren't prepared for real life. That and Political Correctness is a means for someone to gain power while being able to dodge any questions.

A Legacy of Liberalism

Liberal will not stop because it is their roadway to victory. They divide people into groups and then push those group with a single bumper sticker politics. So Blacks are about Slavery and Racism Mexicans are about Immigrants Women are about Abortion Whites are about Environment (and white guilt) etc.. This allows them not to have any coherent policy, nor having to answer for their policy and yet gather votes. Without this Democratic party wouldn't have won election in last 30 years (and one may argue since 1938). Hence there is no chance of it changing; and the damage it causes? Who cares! As long as the leaders get the votes and money.
You do realize that Soccer is very much controlled by Governments? Heck FIFA is more militant than UN in many ways.

An Old Hatred Returns

First of, thank you. I would disagree with you a bit. Good people tend to be, vast majority of people want precisely the same thing. Which is to say live in peace, take care of their families, and well live. HOWEVER People are like sheep being moved by few towards whatever aims (usually power) that those few have. They are easily moved via emotions, and have instinctive desire to be apart of something bigger than themselves. This is how Hitler, Mussolini, Lenin, Mao, and of course obama took power. Vast majority of their supporters are people who by all definition of that word (except perhaps mine) are "good". One more thing. NAZI did their best to hide the true atrocities, they did succeed to have average person at best apathetic to what happens to Jews, but they largely fail in driving average person towards killing frenzy. Of course that does leave to a deep Philosophical question, does a person who has inkling of something very seriously wrong, a person who walks by while others are beaten/denigrated evil? Even though that person may think that his life is in danger as well as his family if he does what is right.
