Person of the Week: Colin Powell, for being representative of people who don’t know when it’s time to “get off the stage”


Person of the Week, Colin Powell, for being one of those who wants so much to be relevant that he now seems, if not a buffoon, then at least a poor example of what he could be. …  His service during the Persian Conflict is appreciated and respected — but his service in the State Department (and thereafter) was a perfect example of those  pathetic ones who simply are more concerned with protecting and promoting their own image than looking after the wellbeing of the nation.

He makes it a point to blame the Tea Party for disunity in the nation?!  Give us a friggin’ freaking break, Mr. Powell — time to exit, … stage left, or right,  but exit. …

Atten – tion! Disorder in the World!


Yes , it seems the anarchists   are demoralizing populations near  and far. …  Who is “managing  ” things?  …

Why the “#@!*&;” are the “inmates” in control of so many American institutions?


Am I only one of  a relatively few who looks askance at the news media  reactions, as well as at the reactions of those who ostensibly are in charge of our American institutions, concerning protesters here and yonder?

A police officer douses with pepper spray some students who refuse to  obey lawful commands  and the press treats the incident as Auschwitz deja vu.  …  It is not unimaginable that before long someone will insist that the United Nations and the World Court take over the case of the U.C. Davis students v. the pepper spray. … 

And the ACLU too most assuredly will insist that the police officers receive capital punishment for their “dastardly deed” — and that the coddled University of California, Davis students have statues of their likenesses erected on campus . …  Books and T.V. appearances to follow. …  Anything else?! …

[Incidentally, as I recall, significant numbers of those in the news media were quite critical of  the peaceful, patriotic meetings of the “Tea Party Movement”, but now seem to glorify anything having to do with “Occupy this and that” gatherings.]

What role has the Obama Administration played in creating the current chaotic circumstances of North Africa/Middle East?


On this page as elsewhere for months it has been suggested sadly that the Obama Administration at best has misunderstood   and at worse, as well   , in like manner has misunderstood and  “mis-reacted” to the “Arab Spring” — and has almost   assuredly insured there would be  , as some have said, an “Arab Fall” (no personal pun intended).

From this perch it certainly appears that there have been failures  of significant proportions in presidential judgement, and consequently in American Policy.

Just sayin’. …

Person of the Week: MSNBC Chris Matthews


Yes, he of the tingle-up-his-leg exhilaration (or something like that) —  for reportedly expressing some negative candid comments about President Obama…  The “thrill is gone”? …  MSNBC and Chris, the mouthpieces of the president and all things Democratic, the enchantment is waning, or is he simply seeking more access to the president’s inner circle ear?  …

NEWS FLASH!!! A truly believable lady says Elvis lives on Catalina Island…


News at 11:oo.   Apparently until now she had not come forward with her story because all this years someone has been threatening her about not divulging the identity of the round man in sequins  with a penchant for pizza and peanut butter & banana sandwiches.  But  …  for the sake of historical authenticity and 15 minutes she has put her life in danger to come forward.

The woman says that on the night Elvis erroneously was reported to have died she was in a sailboat in the next room and for 15 minutes  heard him cry out  about wanting more food, but no one brought him any…  Noticing that Elvis was in dire need of comfort food she called the police department  once or twice about making a food run for the King,  but the police department was closed…

Just another Obama Campaign 2012 “photo op” decision?: token American troops to Australia


Yes, looks like it. …  For several years he ignored China’s expanding influence in several continents, but now to try to mollify criticism   during the current presidential campaign period, President Obama makes a gesture of being on top of the changing landscape in AsiaPacific — which  for so long he apparently failed to understand…  

Not very convincing.
