Living in Troubled Times.
"There is no doubt that our nation's security and defeating terrorism trump all other priorities."
This is all so insane. They are here. They want to kill us all. And those in power and the pundits are having discussions about gun control and no fly lists. And climate change, and worrying about hurting the feelings of murdering savages, for crying out loud. We need to be figuring out ways to stop the madness, not ways to welcome them with open arms. You are spot on about the danger of cities, and that is something I am worried about as well, considering I am stuck in one.
The big thing I see is that Obama doesn't care a damn about the little people, and his gargoyle wife certainly doesn't. So if a bunch of us get whacked he will trot out to the podium, reel off the same hackneyed phrases, then go eat a good supper. He isn't going to get killed, he and his family are safe. So why would he really worry about it if people like us get shot to ribbons or blown up. The political elite views the public as the great unwashed, with disdain and contempt. Hillary Clinton and her husband are great examples of that. Smile in your face and call you names when they go back to their mansion.I don't think anywhere is really safe, Vicki. All we have going for us is the sardine defense. The sharks will eat some of us but there are so many in the school that they can't eat us all.
obama will eat an excellent super that we are paying for.the clintons will return to the mansion paid for with ill gotten gains.they live on welfare on steroids.meanwhile we can't pay our medical bills.
CBS had a feature news story on the "shrinking" middle class. It's still on their web page. Basically, it said the middle class in the country has shrunk from 67% of the population to 50% since 1972. I think that for all the lip service the Democrats pay to "the poor" they accelerate the trend to "poverty for all" by their ridiculous tax and spend programs. The Republicans, on the other hand, seem to be bought and paid for by Big Business, which likes lots of little workers working two or three jobs at minimum wage rather than one worker working one job for a decent salary. I have a visceral contempt for politicians of all stripes, though for more than 40 years I participated religiously in the system and always voted Republican. What a dupe. It doesn't matter how you vote, because when all is said and done the system makes the rich richer, the poor poorer, and keeps the same class of people in power.
No matter how secure security is, they can't catch everything. It makes me nervous to. I don't live in a big city, but we do have Offutt Air Force Base here. If anyone wanted to do some damage they could anywhere I suppose. Sad, but true.
That's what ISIS and Al Qaeda are counting on. There were 28 million Muslims in the U.S. in 2011 when the Pugh research center did their last estimate. Their birth rate exceeds that of the black and hispanic populations. So today, let's say there are around 32 million Moslems in this county. So let's say that 2% of them are either radicalized now or will be. That's 64,000 individuals who will be prone to support or to undertake terrorist attacks on targets of convenience like malls ( a great favorite target), entertainment venues, and best of all in their eyes, schools. Since the Ma'alot school massacre in Israel and the Beslan mass murders in Russia, schools have been a primary target of Islamic terrorists.Given the inane stance of the Obama government, and the lack of coordination between the law enforcement agencies in the U.S. that are supposed to protect us, it's an iron clad guarantee that there will be more attacks, with greater casualties, in the near future. And then Obama will come out and say that "our hearts and prayers go out to those we have lost and their families" , and then he'll say " we will bring the perpetrators of this atrocity to justice." Like a broken record, and just like his predecessors. It really is scary. Those people who got killed last week were all looking forward to Christmas , never realizing they wouldn't make it. Nor did the many killed in Paris dream they would not see Christmas this year. No place is safe unless you are a big wheel in government and can order up your own security service. You and I are out of luck there, so we have to provide our own security. Whether the Democrats and the Great Pretender like it or not.
i don't think the obama 'policy' is inane--it is purposely evil.
When Obama was elected, I thought he was niave , inexperienced, and nothing more than the pathetic product of the Illinois political machine. He had no qualifications to be President, other than "HE BLACK!" But I didn't think he was actively evil. Remember "I don't want to take away your guns!"But as time passed , I saw he was narcissistic, arrogant, vindictive, racist and hell bent on remaking America in his image, with the white population completely marginalized through massive immigration, both legal and illegal. He is evil like Caligula and Nero were evil. And he'll do the same damage to our country and civilization that those two legendary monsters did to Rome.
Todays post is the best you have ever done,,....in fact, the best I have seen to bring home what we are facing. Obama is the sleeper cell. Once you realize he is an Islamic operative, everything he is doing makes sense. He has surrounded himself with the Muslim brotherhood in his administration. Chilling.
He's had a long time to do a lot of damage, and he's used it. He still has a year to do his worst. He and his supporters are certainly behaving as if their dream were an Islamic America dominated by "people of color."We're on the roller coast and we can't get off, so I guess we'll just have to go along with the ride. I'm not relishing the idea.
how long after 'people of color' take over before the sewage treatment plants, the water treatment plants, the electricity producing plants, the entire infrastructure stop working and begin to fall apart?
That is something I've discussed with my wife at length. She grew up in Nigeria, which was a hell hole not so much for lack of resources, but due to the corruption, inefficiency, and outright stupidity inherent in governments run by people with names like "General Butt Naked" and "Honest John." I did not travel in Africa, but anybody who can read and has the will to do the research can check on this point. Look at Liberia, founded by American blacks. That worked out really well. Before anyone does too much bragging on South Africa, talk off line with some white South Africans. I knew a Rhodesian woman in Naples, Italy whose family was wiped out on a farm by terrorists working for Robert Mugabe. Look at Rhodesia now that Mugabe is President for Life, and how it was before it became Zimbabwe, and tell me how anyone is better off, black or white?Look at places like Baltimore, where the city government is black. There's a shining example of urban life at it's best, right?Barack Hussein Obama is intent on bring the Third World to us, and he's making progress every day.
Hey Harry,(captaincrunch)I watched that 'Jihad in America video" and you know what Harry.I really, really dislike Islam. Maybe we will get lucky and Shiites and Sunni's will battle it out and destroy each other and save us the trouble of dealing with them. I also read a story once where a satellite sitting in Earth orbit that had very large nuclear powered microwave emitter that was 'tuned' to a frequency that would 'cook' male reproductive organs just enough to where they were 'shooting blanks' and did not know it. Maybe someone will get the idea to park that satellite if there was one over the middle east, switch it on and wait. 20 years later there would be a 'very noticeable' population decline.Really, I read about that theory in a science fiction book I read years ago.
That would be kind of tough on our friends the Israelis. We have few enough friends that are willing to fight. We have enough who are willing to send medical teams and supplies as their contribution.I am not myself, a big fan of Islam. I didn't care a red cent either way about them til I went to Lebanon and got a good, long look at them.
I agree with Trump's position. Unless you can reliably investigate a person' background, they are potentially unsafe. And when those persons come from a war torn area that is renowned for violence / terrorism, even moreso. How many persons who are of the Muslim faith who commit violent acts here have been previously vetted to check this out ? Many of them.The depressing thought is that this is all 'legal immigration'. This have no effect on the terrorists who already come into this country across our southern and northern borders.
Trump could look outside and say it's going to rain today, and every Republican Presidential candidate would demonize him as a warlock. Not to mention those we know want to keep him quiet, like the entire Federal government and Hillary Clinton's Flying Monkeys, the Democrats.Trump has a perfectly plausible concept. If a particular group of people are hell bent on murdering Americans in their sleep, then don't increase the odds in the terrorists favor by making it easy for them to get in the country. The fact that the Canadians took in their first 1200 today and have promised to accept 25000 more by February of 2106 is going to show our allies the fruits of political correctness. We'll be reading about terrorist attacks up there soon enough. And the people being killed won't be the people who said "Come on Down!" to the bearded followers of Allah, and their bomb girls.You're right about the illegals. We're up to our asses in danger because the Limousine Liberals and the Democratic Party wanted more voters.
Yep many are already here! It's sad that schools have to practice what to do if someone bad comes in the building. If that happened, sadly I'm sure no matter what they would do, many would be dead. They have a buzz system at my kid's school. Many times they say that the attacker is familiar with the school (or place) they are about to attack. They'd get buzzed right on in.
There's always a way into a school. When I was teaching the janitors propped open the side doors to make it easier for them to get inside and out. Didnt make any difference how often you told them not to.
