C.I.A. and LSD…

leave a comment »

I have never been satisfied with the information released on the  death of military  scientist Frank Olson,  who supposedly leaped to his death after unknowingly being dosed with LSD.   Apparently his sons aren’t either.

Moving Gitmo stateside…

leave a comment »

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is eager to help the legacy of His Oneness by advocating for  closing Gitmo.   My first suggestion is that the government build a special prison right next door to her home in California so that she may enjoy first-hand experience of some of the consequences.

Alternatively,  the new prison should be placed directly across from the White House, so reporters don’t have to go far for comments when the first school bus is taken over by jihadists  seeking to exchange them for their incarcerated brethren.   When the first dead child is displayed on national TV,  Mr. Obama should be live on camera along with Sen. Feinstein.

The sterling logic of Walter Williams shows us why secession is  not unconstitutional.

Misleading no big deal…

leave a comment »

Of course the White House isn’t concerned about Amb. Susan  Rice having “misled”   the American people.   The Executive Branch misleads us every day,  and flat-out lies when it suits.   This is the same White House which  claims there  are no unanswered questions about Amb.. Rice’s Sunday show appearances.

Don’t kid yourselves.   I knew within hours of the Benghazi attack that it was an act of terrorism,  not an overly excited mob.   RPGs are not made of balsa wood.  They are too heavy to be brought along for simple mob action.  Susan Rice has been around for quite a while.  If she couldn’t figure out the truth within 24 hours,  she needs to work elsewhere.

Sinkhole spreading…

leave a comment »

Sinkholes are  interesting,  but bad.   How bad depends largely on where they are.   Louisiana has many salt domes,  but the fact that this particular sinkhole is near an underground storage facility containing 63 million gallons of liquid butane is a considerable worry.

Small thanks…

leave a comment »

For the fourth straight year,  His Oneness doesn’t  thank God in  his Thanksgiving message.   I suppose in his view the government is the sole entity deserving thanks.   I’ll bet he does not know that our domesticated turkeys are  descended from  wild Mexican turkeys.   I feel a bit sorry for the modern bird,  but they have bred all the sense out of them, so they don’t know how bad off they are.

And despite our terrible leader,  who appears to have  been mocked  by Cambodia’s first lady,  there is  still much  to be thankful for.   How long that  remains true  with His Oneness at the helm of our sinking ship of state is yet to be seen.

Media matters…

leave a comment »

You knew the press was voting for His Oneness.  Did you have the sense during the last week of the presidential campaign that the bias increased?    This chart  shows how right you were.   MSNBC did no negative stories  on Obama during the last week,  and no positive ones on Romney.
