american demagoguery

Muslim extremists killed our people in Libya. Muslim extremists killed our people at the WTC- twice. Muslim extremists killed our people in Afghanistan. Muslim extremists killed our people on the Achille Lauro. Muslim extremists killed our people at the Olympics in 1972. Muslim extremists killed our people in our embassies in 1979. Muslim extremists killed our people at Fort Hood. Muslim extremists killed our people in Iraq. Muslim extremists killed our people on the USS Cole. Muslim extremists killed our people in Beirut. Muslim extremists killed our people on TWA flight 847. Muslim extremists killed our people on Pan am flight 103. Yes, the problem is clearly Mitt Romney.


Every time I watch the media fawn over the president I’m reminded of Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”  It’s the media’s job to report, not support.

This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2011.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of idiots such as those who made him their president."

Libya 9/11 debacle

Robert Ludlum
Where is Robert Ludlum when you need him.  For me, he was the premier teller of tales of government subterfuge, conspiracy and intrigue.

You know, I'm a firm believer in the adage that in all fiction there is at least a few nuggets of truth contained there-in upon which the story hinges.

Perhaps James Paterson, or even Nora Roberts could weave this tale of Chicago mob infiltration of the highest levels of government.  Sidney Sheldon would have had us in suspense unable to stop turning pages well past our bedtimes.

No, the best author to write this novel would have been Karl Stig-Erland "Stieg" Larsson a journalist who could write spell-binders of the,  highest quality.

Although I would prefer the unadulterated truth about the debacle of the murder of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, as well as three other American heros, I doubt that that truth will be forth coming.  The administration and higher military personnel are hiding something, that is eminently clear.  In my experience, you don't hide information unless you have something to hide.

So, the story will be written and when you read it pick out the nuggets of truth that are being purposely with held by President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (remember she herself is and expert at political and legal subterfuge; recall the Whitewater scandal,) Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, and Gen. Patraeus the head of the CIA.

There is a foul odor here folks and  if it smells like rotten fish then there is a rotten fish in the barrel.

Midnight Snack, 1984, by Curtis Wilson Cost

Hoot, Hoot, Hoot.
Awake now to the sounds
Of nature’s “lesser” creatures;
Coons and possum scrabbling
About the crawl space under
My Thoreau cottage.

Toss apple wood in the
Franklin and stoke the coals.
Turn up the kerosene lamp;
Sit in the willow rocker and
Contemplate my
LaBastille lifestyle.

 A Euell Gibbon’s snack of
Wild hickory nuts, rose hips,
And dried blue berries
Washed down with cool spring water
Satisfies my hunger

This is the life:
The simple life of
Helen and Scott.
Off the grid.
Back to basics:

Eat, sleep, procreate.
