Doug, I generally agree with your postulation, inasmuch as it “is always darkest before the dawn.” There are many similar philosophical expressions of this idea because it is a universally recognized fact that the pendulum swings in both directions. But the recovery portion of the cycle does not always occur in the hands of those who failed. It is more often that successor barbarians own the recovery after destroying the original inhabitants, burning their books, and eating their babies. Hopefully, we can manage to forge our own recovery while we have the opportunity … before the barbarians destroy us. However, this ability is not guaranteed. It requires that the controlling majority of our countrymen of all persuasions reject the false messages of political correctness and other cleverly worded pseudo-intellectual academic false-philosophies. We must recover our ability to squarely face reality and elect true leaders instead of handing the reins of power to posers and pretenders who have “good hair” or the current politically correct pigmentation or gender plumbing. We need to hearken to the voice of Martin Luther King, Jr., who strongly advised us to value a man based on the content of his character instead of the color of his skin. It was good advice. We didn’t listen last time. Maybe we will next time.
OK, so now Obama is going to be FORCED to back down from his claim that "the war is over." Like all his other lies, this "chicken's coming HOOOOME to roost!" ... as his good friend and mentor, racist preacher, Jerome Wright, might say. He'll try to spin it but it's just one more major failure of his presidency. Bad decisions made by leftist, socialist amateurs in the White House.
In the country of the disarmed, the man with one gun is king.
WMD? Yep, they were obviously there. Only a moron would argue that point, since Saddam Hussein murdered many thousands of his fellow Iraqis using nerve gas, which is a WMD. Then, there is the small matter of the Pakistani nuclear-weapon scientist, the "father" of the "Islamic Bomb," who was spending a lot of time with the Iraqi military. Of course we are supposed to believe that they didn't talk about how to build nuclear bombs, aren't we? Duuuh? What's wrong with this picture?
Polls say that most Americans are in favor of "immigration reform" but in order to understand what this means you have to read the way the polls are worded. The wording is an attempt to color the results to favor the opinion of the pollsters. An objectively, neutrally worded poll would have revealed that most Americans believe that the borders should be sealed and illegal immigration completely stopped. Period. Cantor failed to recognize this and began to play on the Republican Party career-politician team that has drunk the Kool-Aid that says that Republicans must make friends with illegal aliens or they will not be able to ever win another election. This is completely wrong! The vast majority of LEGAL American voters are fully in favor of completely stopping illegal immigration, not modifying it. Then, MOST Americans want the immigration process to be legally controlled and ENFORCED. Cantor lost his way, then lost the election. A lot of politicians are going to follow him ... soon.
The NRA is right. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Schools should have armed security guards. It's merely the cost of education in a liberal world where law-abiding citizens are disarmed. Women and children should not be left defenseless. Women should buy guns, learn how to use them, get a license, and carry them. Our children, like Obama's children, should have the protection of armed guards. "Gun-free zone" signs are not working for us.
What I want to know is why the state police of Arizona, and Texas and other states where they are dropping off underage illegal child immigrants, are not arresting the federal employees who are doing this. Isn't this legally considered child abuse? If one of us abandoned a little kid at a bus station, we would be locked up until hell froze over.

How To Interview Hillary Clinton

After years of observing Hillary Clinton I have come to the conclusion that she is a sociopath. She is a cold fish who knows how to mouth the platitudes but who is clearly unable to actually "feel our pain." She knows what she is SUPPOSED to feel but is incapable of those feelings, herself, so she pretends but doesn't do a convincing job. When necessary, she mouths the words in order to manipulate the situation but feels nothing. This is a serious mental problem. I once asked a psychiatrist friend to differentiate sociopathy from psychopathy. He thought about it for a minute and said, "A sociopath hasn't killed anybody yet."

The appropriate and only effective way to interview Hillary Clinton is by water-boarding her.
Notice that the GW purveyors have changed their GW mantra to "Climate Change" because GW has been proven to be a hoax and the GW scientists charlatans ... but this hasn't calmed the GW Chicken Littles. Nay! Nay! They just change the title of their fantasy and proceed with scare-mongering. Nevertheless, here's a thought for you to ponder: There are two possibilities regarding Global Warming (GW); it either is real or it is not real. So, let us presume for the sake of argument that GW is real. First, let's understand what we are proposing here. We are talking about controlling the weather of the entire planet, by our unerring weather prediction over the coming century or so, based on highly complex weather prediction models. Uh, oh! These are the same models that gave us the prediction that the global climate would be warming at an increasing rate during the past couple of decades. Oopsie daisy! The global temperature has NOT warmed during the past 15+ years. So, this proves beyond doubt that the models are worthless. But never mind that. Let's just change the name from global warming to global climate change, then anytime the weather changes, we are right. Good plan. Unfortunately for these morons, people (most people ... some people, anyway) are smarter than that. But, don't pay attention to that man behind the curtain. We are still proposing to predict and then control the weather during the coming centuries but we are stuck with the "inconvenient truth" that these supposed "climatologists" can't even predict the weather next week with any degree of certainty so how, pray tell, are they predicting the weather in the next century? Sorry. Just a wild and crazy thought. Back to presuming that they are absolutely accurate and GW is real. I know that this is a stretch but stick with me. These are the same people who can't control a brush fire in California, can't predict a stupendously large earthquake, can't prevent a single volcano from belching CO2 into the atmosphere, can't even predict the arrival of huge meteors headed toward earth when they are in plain sight, who are now going to tell us that they can control the weather around the globe by cutting down on automobile emissions and shuttering coal-fired power plants and building windmills. Really? REALLY?! ROFLMAO! Don Quixote is proud of them.
