Washington DC Dangerously Out Of Control

It seems we have not learned our lesson yet on how badly out of control the federal government is. You’d think we would have learned from ObamaCare and the Frank-Dodd-Morgtage debacle how shoddy (but always ‘well meaning’) legislation can wreak havoc when it finally becomes law, policy, processes and procedures. The Frank-Dodd-Morgtage disaster is a […]

America Speaks: Leave GITMO As Is, Keep Terrorists Outside Our Borders

Published by under Bin Laden/GWOT

Doesn’t get any more clear than this: Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to closing the detention center for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay and moving some of the detainees to prisons on U.S. soil, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds. By more than 2-1, those surveyed say Guantanamo shouldn’t be closed. By more than 3-1, they oppose […]

From The Duh! Files – Holder On GITMO

  It’s been a while since I dusted off the Duh! Files category, but this news article cries out for the label: Holder: Closing Gitmo won’t be easy … Closing Guantanamo, he said, “will not be an easy process.” … “It’s going to take us a good portion of that time to look at all […]

The Crime Of Unintended Consequences

  Unintended consequences. Sometimes these are accidental benefits, serendipities. In these cases the lack of forethought preceding the result is forgiven with humble amazement of the thing called ‘luck’. But when the results are disastrous, then the question becomes could someone reasonably have foreseen the potential for disaster and stopped it. So let me remove all […]

Published by under All General Discussions

Sorry for the light posting, work is kicking my butt (which is a good problem considering). Just a kick post on what I heard this morning on the GITMO debacle. Seems President Obama issued the Executive Order to close GITMO without and plan or idea on what to do with the inmates there (most hard […]

Obama’s First Act – Protect The Terrorists In GITMO

Published by under All General Discussions

Update: From Gateway Pundit and our readers we find that most Americans (i.e., the 70% or so who don’t support liberal policies) reject the idea of closing GITMO: Only 35% support Obama’s first move in office. I heard an interesting theory this morning, that the 120 day suspension is meant to kick this ridiculous act […]

Obama’s Blunders

Published by under All General Discussions

Obama is looking pretty weak and without convictions before even being sworn in. The biggest concern I think every one has (supporters and the opposition) is the fact he is an inexperienced unknown upon whom people projected a lot of hopes and wishes (and fantasies). His handling of the Blagojevich incident was a bad first […]

As Israel Fights Terrorists, Obama Plans To Free Terrorists

Published by under All General Discussions

Obama has so far been a major disappointment to the radical left. He has selected a lot of centrist democrats, has left the major players in place at the Pentagon and is dumping his radical liberal policies in the face of a serious economic crisis (even to the point of proposing massive tax cuts). Very […]
