Sarkozy is tossed into the political “dustheap of history”


PanAm believes wholeheartedly that as a whole the Europeans are not as commonsensically savvy as the Americans, but nonetheless our  brethren across the pond were smart enough to vote out their fiscally irresponsible leaders… 

Come on, good people of the United States,  don’t dawdle — lickety-split get on the bandwagon and prepare to vote out rascal Obama and other like-minded politicians…

Poor duplicitous, sniveling Dan Rather, still hocking his “fake documents”


At the same time Danny boy Rather unconvincingly pleads on T.V. and newsprint that he is wiser and holds no animosity toward CBS and his critics, he continues peddling his “fake documents” story, absurdly in such a manner apparently trying to rewrite history…  

Little doubt from this perch that CBS NEWS “signed off” on the original news segment attacking George W. Bush’s military record, and that Dan Rather was jettisoned once the public outcry arose over the fake documents,  but undoubtedly Danny Boy Rather was the duplicitous  instigator of it all and no amount of bellyaching and of  “rewriting copy” will change that…

 

Military service by osmosis — Newt Gingrich says: I’m not a chickenhawk because my father fought in Vietnam. …?


Speaker Gingrich is articulate and possesses a high intellect,  but ought to be truthful with the American people by repeating the answer he gave some years back about why he did not enlist to serve in the military during the Vietnam Conflict — he said then something to the effect that he did not “go” because as one individual he would not have made a difference.(!) …  Come on, Newt,  ‘fess up. …  You did not serve in Vietnam  because you thought others whose lives were less valuable than yours ought go in your place.

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’. …
