Sorry for the drop off in posts; I had the every 4-5 year computer freeze up/blow down and am working on an old laptop.
Time to spend $$ I hadn't counted on.
The Mac devotees would say I have the wrong PC, but I don't want to learn an entire new system.
I had a really decent post for Dec. 7... essentially that we've gone from "Remember Pearl Harbor!" to "Prosecute Our SEALs!"
In essence that was it; when you think of it that's a lot.
The flat-earthers in Cope-N-haaggunn number as many as 20,000... and five rag-head terrorists. It occurred to me mind that if someone set off a truck load of C4 in the midst of thousands of environmental whack-jobs and a handful of poseur politicians, I wouldn't shed a tear.
And now that the so-called "Danish text" has been leaked, exposing the entire scam as a gigantic con, and designed to undermine small countries.... the entire enviro-idiots are done; but that does not mean that your Congress and President won't sign it anyway.
When you look at the world today... especially the U.S. government, it's like touring a movie lot; intricate facades which front enormous plywood constructs. Or if you will, the "Pay no attention to the Man behind the curtain" scene from Wizard of Oz.
Problem is... 70 percent of most people don't care to step around back, being content to live lives of mindless emotion.... "can't we all just get along?"
No, Virginia... there is no Utopia.
The problem is... Utopians, if they remember, vote.
Think of it, you read, you discuss, you think and fret; you worry about the country you're leaving your children, pray... and you vote--only to have it canceled by a idiot who only needed "Hope and Change" to exercise their franchise.
Jack Shafer, the Slate media columnist, spells out how this transpired."The Tiger Woods that was constructed for corporate consumption was spotless and smooth, an edgeless brand easily peddled to sheikhs and shakers.
"Because Barack Obama is about as completely manufactured a political character as this nation has seen. His meteoric rise, without the inconvenience of a public record or accomplishments, and the public's willing suspension of critical evaluation of his résumé allowed his handlers and the media to project whatever they wanted to on his unfurrowed brow."
and, from Lisa Schiffern wringing in American Thinker
"Ironically, the parallels have nothing to do with race. The Obama campaign did explicitly attempt to borrow the from the then-universal Tiger Woods appeal to allay any discomfort voters might have had with a mixed-race politician. They constructed a persona that would make the American electorate comfortable with a barely-known, first-term senator with a left wing voting record, a deliberately obscured personal and professional past, and no traditional qualifications for high office.
