Sequestration, Pentagon & Al Qaeda

Looks like congress will finish what al Qaeda started. In 2001 a hyjacked United Airlines crashed before it could ram the Pentagon. It would have been doubtful that the Boeing 767 could have demolished the entire Pentagon Building and its hundred of thousands of employees. So the upcoming sequester impact on the Pentagon cutback will approximate the 2001 attempted demoliotion had it been successful. I.E. approximately 20% of "defense" personnell will be effectively killed off humanely by furlough. Who will miss these warmongers? None work for the minimum wage. In fact all work at multiples of wages that exist in the private sector. Also their health and retirement benefits are found no where in the universe for their disconnect from value given compared to value received. Osama Bin Laden was ahead of his time and his methods by our standards were over-the-top but the credibility of his analysis has found currency with our politicians.

Drone Assassination Killing: Immaculate, Righteous & Ritualistic

The translation of Mozart's "Cosi Fan Tutti" comic opera title says " Everyone is doing it".

The defense of United States drone assassination is that it's saving many lives by killing a few lives. To hear  advocates, drone assassinations approach gods own judgement and execution.. It's immaculate. It's ritualistic. It's righteous. And its cost effective. How can one argue against a god like approach to killing? In the tradition of a long history of celebrated assassins, which include Brutus, John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray, Sirhan Sirhan and the many suicide bombers past, present and in the future, you are honored by the highest form of praise ---imitation.

If drones were around in Cole Porters day, he would have included a reference in " You're The Top".

George W Bush Emails Hacked:Electronic Shoe Throwing?

"Character is fate", remarked the 5th century B.C. Greek philosopher Heraclitus.

The New York Times is carrying the story that George W Bush emails for the past three years have been hacked and posted on the website " The Smoking Gun". The emails contain gossip , photos, w's observations along with friends messages Naturally also included are personal names and addresses and contact numbers for W's personal circle of family and friends. Want to contact W now or ever more? We all remember W as the the moron who gave us preemptive war and then demonstrated its pitfalls by invading Iraq for WMD . He found none. But under his direct orders killed over a million innocent Iraqi civilians and dislocated over 5 millions. His reckless moronic behavior still causes deaths in Iraq to this day . His overthrow of Saddam Hussein started a civil war with no end in sight. George also gave us the Patriot Act. That misnomer allowed surveillance of U.S. citizens without warrants. So todays news looks like some payback for the ass.Hopefully W will never sleep well for the rest of his days.

In Iraq on November 16, 2007, Iraqi broadcast journalist Muntadhar al- Zaidi throw both his shoes at Bush at a press conference. He shouted at the same time, " This is a farewell kiss from the Iraqi people you dog." The hacking is a kind of electronic shoe throwing. The shoe has been passed to many others.

Homosexuals In Military : Mandatory Blood Tests

War means spilling of blood. Why the homosexuals want to to be part of this is any ones guess? But since the sure way of transmitting STDs which include AIDS/HIV is contact with an infected persons blood, then mandatory testing for recruits and all members of the armed forces should be the rule. There are many barriers to being  accepted in the armed services. This should be added.

 War is tough enough as is. A regular soldier doesn't deserve to be collateral damage from a politically correct, cause celebre minority's spattered blood..

Citizenship & Visas For Smart & Highly Qualified Foreigners

The debate on illegals in this country covers options from shoot on sight to make them comfortable without regard to moral hazard or costs.But the two sides agree on one option in dealing with prospective legal immigrants. I.E. Highly qualified applicants for U.S. citizenship should be fast tracked to an approval.

This begs the questions, " Why are there many openings for highly skilled jobs that can't be filled by our own domestically schooled people?" Let me include my own answer to this thorny question that many won't even ask in public. Our students are taught more about care giving and sacrificing their advancement in knowledge so cause celebre minorities can feel more comfortable in class. That's how Obama got his job! We all pretended to be stupid so he could look smart.
