Except for the lynching part, I'd like a march on the White House by military and intelligence agency veterans. I marched on the weekend that Pelosi and posse were ramming the Obamacare legislation through on a technical illegality. I believe it is time for a million of us veterans to march on the White House and demand answers on Benghazi. Then, we march over to the Capitol Building to demand that Obama be ousted. If anyone has information about such an event, please let me know. I'll be there and I'll bring along any others that might want to drive from Minnesota to D.C., just like I did for Obamacare. (This time, I'd like to get notice in advance so as to obtain a hotel room. Last time, we slept in my van and on the ground.)

I'm not calling for insurrection, but only a march on Washington to express the sentiments of lots of Americans, similar to the one I joined in opposition to Obamacare. Unless some OWS agents provocateur engage in felonious activities, I cannot imagine that such a group would become violent, or even disrespectful. I would expect the entire thing to follow the same unwritten rules that the TEA Party follows in all public appearances. There should be no reason for law enforcement or the National Guard to intervene in any way. With the understanding that the First Amendment allows the citizens the right of the people peaceably to assemble to petition the Government for a redress of grievances, then there can be no force brought against us.

While I would expect the military and the police to step aside for that many vets, consider: Who has his finger on the nuke button?

Do you believe for a minute that those in Washington would hesitate to push that button if they thought there was any danger to them at all? Even if that group was in a big city like New York? I don't! And don't believe they wouldn't know if you set something up on internet. Thanks to Clinton every computer, phone, etc. in the US has a chip in it that records every message and passes it along to Washington for review. So be careful calling for something like this.

The second-term curse goes like this: A president (e.g., Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, etc.) wins re-election, but then his presidency implodes over the next four years -- mired in scandals or disasters such as Watergate, Iran-Contra, Monica Lewinsky, the Iraqi insurgency and Hurricane Katrina.

Apparently, like tragic Greek heroes, administrations grow arrogant after their re-election wins. They believe that they are invincible and that heir public approval is permanent rather than fickle.

The result is that Nemesis zeroes in on their fatal conceit and with a boom corrects their hubris. Or is the...
