How To Make A Monster

How do you make a monster? You twist their mind and heart with hate and anger. You politicize everything in terms that inflame damaged people with weak minds. You fill their heads with psychobabble that reinforces their ill-formed and ignorant notions about the nature of the world. You create an echo chamber of approving and nudging rhetoric that repeats each and every day. You convince and reassure them that their neurosis is morally right and good, and that those who oppose them must be stopped by any means necessary. Next you identify those that are to be the enemy as sub-human, and relate them to familiar boogeymen like Nazis and race supremacists. All that’s left to do is start ratcheting up the rage and hate with ever-increasing ferocity. Now you’ve created a tool for morally justified violence.

I’ve seen and read a lot of things since the election that occurred almost a year ago (yes it’s been that long) that meet the criteria I just outlined. I’ve seen a lot of people become completely unhinged by the insidious propaganda of the progressive left.  A literal army of ignorant zombies intent on violence, assured of their moral superiority, and without a compass to guide them. I bet you’ve seen and heard them too, as they are everywhere. They put things on Facebook and Twitter calling people bigots, racists, etc. They wear p*ssy hats and put on American flag hijabs. They mock Christianity while apologizing for Islam.  They kneel during the National Anthem. They hate people with abject racism, but  they cover it with language like “white privilege” and “intersectionality”, and justify it with concepts like “systematic racism”.

The most frustrating thing about these people is that they know nothing. They literally know nothing.  They lecture and sermonize about what our government should be doing, when they don’t even know what our government is. If you need a demonstration of this assertion, just ask them ( or yourself if you’re a social justice warrior/ person with stunted emotional and intellectual development ) :

What are the three branches of Government?

Can you name 2 of the rights guaranteed in the First Amendment?

Does the Constitution, and in turn the government, give you your rights?

Why do we have an electoral college?

How does making and passing a law happen, and who are your representatives in Congress?

If you can’t answer these questions, you might just be talking out of your backside when you talk politics. It certainly seems that the ability to rationally and critically think has disappeared……especially among the most recent products of the University System. If the hateful rhetoric and actions of the progressive left, and in turn the politicization of every aspect of our lives doesn’t stop, we are headed for trouble. Historically speaking it’s the kind of trouble that leaves millions of lives destroyed. When you have people calling for systems of government like Socialism and Communism – that together killed over 80 million people in the 20th century alone – while tearing down the concepts of Individual Liberty, Capitalism and Meritocracy – that have elevated more people than anything else in the history of the world – you have a serious problem indeed.

There are people, posers in positions of power within media and government, who have created an army of monsters because they lost an election, and now it has grown out of control. Was the Vegas shooter one of these monsters, like the Virginia shooter? I’ll make the prediction here, and I’d bet dollars to donuts on it…….I think he was. I think he was radicalized by the Media and the Left, and was so absorbed by his hate that he took action. And sadly, instead of stepping back and doing some self examination……..instead of contemplating the results of this shameless and shallow politicization of society in exchange for power and control…….they are stepping over bodies to get in front of the cameras. Because it’s not their fault……….it’s yours for rejecting them. Besides, they have more monsters to make.

Ivanka Cries, Trump’s Agenda Dies?

Will the real Donald Trump please stand up? If pictures of suffering children is all it takes to launch America into – at best another Iraq-style debacle, and at worst – World War 3…… then our military is about to be very, very busy.  According to Eric Trump, Ivanka Kushner was “heartbroken and outraged” over images of children in Syria, and that “she has influence” over her father’s decisions, and that in turn the President was “deeply affected” by the pictures he was shown. Let me be clear, I still support the agenda laid out by Trump in the year leading up to the election. My concern is that since being sworn in the President has surrounded himself with some bad actors, and I didn’t vote for them and their status-quo agenda.

When idiots like Fareed Zakaria, John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Bill Kristol, and Lindsey “I haven’t found the right woman yet” Graham suddenly decide to sing the praises of striking Syria and Russia, and in turn President Trump, you know that the wrong decisions are being made. Also, why are we now adding the picturesque little hellhole known as Montenegro to NATO? Do people realize that any attack on a NATO country requires a military response by the United States? Or that the United States carries the largest financial burden for NATO, even though it is a treaty for the defense of Europe – not the United States? Donald Trump repeatedly promised during the campaign to withdraw from, or defund, NATO……..and to not get involved in the Syrian civil war, so what has changed?

It is concerning to me that without investigation or facts ( what kind of “gas”- no gloves or masks were present on aid workers – and ISIS in Syria has used gas attacks in an attempt to effect a response  before-*NYTimes 11/21/16 ) , we launched an attack on Syria, a westernized nation not beholden to Sharia law – in support of islamists who would enforce the most archaic theocracy imaginable. Why can we not extricate ourselves from this region? What is our interest, and why is there no effort to explain to the American public a rationale for this dangerous folly? All I can find is the same old garbage about “moral obligations” and “protecting the children”, and I’m sorry…….I care about the citizens of the United States and their children first and foremost – and I’m sick and tired of sacrificing America’s youth and our financial future for some Islamic Dump of a Country on the other side of the world.  Did Bosnia and Iraq prove nothing?

I still believe in the agenda that Trump put forth, and that we voted for……….but where is it? The course of events does not seem to be any different from that of a Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton presidency so far, and I find that entirely unacceptable. I can only conclude that people like life-long Democrat and Globalist banker Jared Kushner need to go, because they are anathema to the stated goals of the newly elected President, and they are not representative of the people who brought Trump to the dance. Establishment “nevertrumpers” are still just that, and appeasing their desires for a third World War will not make them stop undermining and demonizing the President. Now that the islamists know what it takes to goad The West into fighting on their behalf, look for several more of these chemical attacks to occur in an attempt to mobilize our severely depleted military. Maybe someone should give some pictures of suffering American children dying in the inner cities to Ivanka, or pictures of third-term aborted babies…….perhaps then we would mobilize the Federal Government on our own behalf.

A Trump Mistake?

I have said repeatedly over the last eighteen months that when I see something going wrong with the Trump administration, I will say so. Well, today is that day. It’s all over the globalist corporate news networks this morning…….and what’s missing are the details. What am I referring to? As of right now, the United States has committed Marines and artillery to Syria. I find this development deeply disturbing, and once again I must break from the “wisdom” of the John McCain wing of the republican party that is obsessed with all things war.

One of the reasons I voted for Trump was the repeated campaign promise to withdraw U.S. troops from places that we should not be…….and I strongly believe that Syria is definitely one of those places. Frankly, I am against any and all new deployments of “boots on the ground”, because we are not in any position to win wars. We are mired in political correctness and muddled rules of engagement, and the military has not been repaired, nor its social engineer hacks removed, in the short time that Trump has been in office. If anything, his picks for cabinet positions are a beach-head in the bureaucracy, and represent being one-level deep in a sea of Obama/Bush kleptocrats.

My questions are many, but I would be happy to get the following answers: Who are we fighting in Syria, and why?  Republicans are on TV telling me that our Marines will be receiving firing orders from ” the fighters we have trained on the ground” in order to “combat ISIS”. What the hell does that mean? It sounds to me like U.S. soldiers getting their marching orders from a bunch of Islamic goat-humpers – who would be just as happy chopping off their heads and strapping bombs to 10 year olds – as they are to be our “allies”. Are we fighting with, or against, Russia and the Syrian government? Are we escalating the disastrous strategy of the bumbling Obama?

The stock market has gained roughly 3 trillion in value since Trump’s election. Illegal border crossings are down a reported 40 percent. Consumer confidence is at a half-century high, and small business prospects are also at their highest since 1984. Obamacare is almost toast, regardless of the establishment bullsqueeze attempting to replace it, and more than half of the public is happy entrusting Trump with the economy. Who’s interest does this serve? China is about to stake claim to the moon ( and make no mistake they will claim ownership of it – let your mind wander on the possibilities ), and of all the previously international waters in Asia…..yet we are once again throwing men, women, and money into the gristmill of the Middle East……with no clear goal or path to victory. So Mr. President………how does this benefit the People of The United States and return power to the taxpayer? The only wars I want the President undertaking are on Twitter.

“Such will be a great lesson of peace – teaching men that what they cannot take by an election, neither can they take by a war – teaching all the folly of being the beginners of a war….” – Abraham Lincoln

The War Party

I’m not even finished watching the Human Botox Experiment, John Kerry, justify Obama’s obsession with destroying Israel and building the Caliphate………and wow. I have been telling people that the Democrat party is obsessed with starting a third World War, and it looks like they want their pathetic legacy to reflect that obsession.

Just in Kerry’s last 5 minutes he has continually repeated the lie that there is any nation called Palestine. He actually says, “Israel is occupying Palestine”……..under that logic, Louisiana is occupied France, Texas is occupied Mexico, and France is occupied Gaul. How telling it is that the left has done nothing but bemoan imaginary “foreign interference” in our elections and affairs…..yet as I write this, Kerry prattles on about how we are actively interfering in another sovereign nation’s business. To make it worse, Obama’s agenda costs lives……now and in the future.

Make no mistake, this is about nothing but handing Trump a World War instead of just a broken economy, race regression, CIA controlled media, crippled healthcare system with an unconstitutional mandate, and 20 trillion dollar debt. If you have any doubt that Barack Obama will indeed go down as the most heinous, insidious, dishonest, and deadly U.S. president, just watch the next 3 weeks. Funny how even with only 30 days left in office, Obama takes yet another a 17 day, multimillion dollar, taxpayer funded vacation……..and still takes the time to punch our friends in the face over advancing the interests of his true allies – the Muslim Brotherhood and all things Allah.

We have imported terror. We have created Isis. We have made worse a civil war in Syria,  costing 400,000 lives with our “red lines” and interference. We have rebuked every ally and emboldened every enemy. And it looks like we are going to endorse and recognize the non-existent state of “Palestine”. We have NO BUSINESS in the affairs of other nations, especially while hypocritically decrying the very same thing in our own country.

If Obama and Kerry are successful in what they have just done, History will note that this is when the most horrid conflict on the face of the Earth began…….and that the United States was responsible for the death of the only Middle East democracy, and the birth of the most evil force known to man…..a giant, unified, islamic caliphate that has already infiltrated its enemies.

My question to my friends of the leftist persuasion……….when did you become everything you despise? Secret agendas, backroom tricks and corruption, lies, foreign influence, propagandist news, intolerance, embrace of religious extremism ( but only islam ), and war, war, war?

I had hoped that the childish, immature machinations of the left after losing the election would be contained to the media and entertainment world……how naive I was in that hope. Like the child who turns over the game-board after losing in a fit of petulance, it seems that Obama and the American Left are willing to burn down the world in their own temper tantrum. How backwards they have become…….it truly appears that their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

“War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.” – George Orwell

What Is It Good For?

Enough is enough. Russia did not hack voting machines and put Trump in office. Russia did not turn blue states into red states. Russia did not vote out Democrat Progressives in over 1000 legislative seats and put over a dozen Democrat Governors out on the street. Russia did not vote Democrats out of a majority in the House and Senate.

If Russia did hack anything, it was John Podesta, Huma Abedin, and Hillary Clinton. The interesting part is that the blind partisans claiming Russian “interference” cannot address what exactly that means. Are Podesta’s emails fake? Are Hillary’s? Have they denied the unethical and criminal behavior exposed by Wikileaks? Nope.

Who knew that when a criminal is caught, it is actually the fault of those that exposed the crimes, not a result of the crime committed by the criminal! The issue is that the hard left is more angry at the people responsible for exposing their crimes than those that committed them.

Now the CIA,  under John Brennan’s  leadership, is acting on American soil to undermine an election. Brennan is an Obama appointee that keeps a prayer rug in his office and refused to be sworn into his office on a Bible. Did you even know that? Did you know he wants to “brief” electors before they cast their vote, yet has refused a request by Congress to appear and give them the same briefing?

What about idiots like fired and disgraced Keith Olbermann? He reads a teleprompter (while pretending to be so-outraged-I’m-yelling) on a webcast calling for “extreme and drastic measures” to prevent Trump from taking office, “by any means necessary”. Is that not a threat? Is it not stoking the nuts in an attempt to provoke a violent act? I opposed Obama from the moment he announced his candidacy. I argued with Progressives I knew that he was shady and inexperienced, a leftist radical that at the very least would run us into debt and at worst turn America into a weakened, globalist European-style soft tyranny. Well, I was right about him, yet I cannot find any examples of mainstream media figures and outlets calling for “extreme and drastic measures”. I do not remember the CIA attempting a coup on the American public through lies and misinformation.

Did Russia put us 20 trillion dollars in debt? Did they put over 95 million working age Americans out of the labor force, causing a real unemployment rate of over 30 percent? (or maybe you didn’t know Obama changed the way we calculate the unemployment rate, not counting anyone who isn’t collecting an unemployment check?) Did Russia pass an unconstitutional Government healthcare mandate in a 3000+ page bill that no one read?

Maybe the left missed it, but we have become weak, indebted, and militarily stretched beyond our capabilities. So their answer is to subvert an election and start a new World War with Russia, who they historically have elevated? Maybe they don’t know that Russia has more nukes and soldiers, and that unlike America, Russia fought a war on its own soil only 70 years ago that cost them millions of lives. Who are the sons, daughters, and grandchildren of these progressives that will go fight in the war they are stoking? Why do they praise and pay off Iran, ignore China’s man-made island building and region threatening, but provoke Russia?

I only wish that the Progressive Left had fought for America’s citizens and their interests in the last decade like they are fighting against them now. We are witnessing the temper tantrum of a group of people who have always gotten everything they want, and as a result of losing an election are willing to sentence millions to untold suffering……..for what? So Hillary Clinton can bring her corruption to the White House again? So foreign lobbyists and power brokers can continue to buy our government? So we can have more social engineering that we borrow from China to achieve? So we can have a corrupt Congress pass more bills that we get to read only after they pass them?

I don’t think Russia is our friend, but when it comes to mortal enemies…..America’s all full up. We are dealing with idealogues and fools who fail to recognize that they are the result of the freedom, safety, and opportunity that America once provided its citizens. Like the fascists and tyrannies they claim to oppose, they seek to limit your speech, opportunities, and freedom. After the past eight years America is faced with a huge pile of feces, yet it seems that many of these people have developed an affinity for the smell, and are desperately attempting to prevent it from being cleaned up.  What a bunch of jerks.

Peace Sells, But Who’s Buying?

This is the most important election of my lifetime. After nearly 2 decades of transformation, the America I grew up in, and learned about in school, has nearly vanished. It started after 9/11 with the creation of The Patriot Act, a massive intrusion into our privacy and violation of the 4th Amendment ( Unlawful search and seizure ), continued with a failed and flawed strategy of Middle East war, and then really picked up steam with the election of King Barry. The Boy King rose to power with promises of “Hope and Change”, yet once in office he doubled and tripled down on Dubya’s progressivism……. ramming through every dream policy of the Globalist Elite. More feckless and unproductive war, more Government intrusion, and most importantly, MORE CONTROL.

I’m old enough to remember when Uncle Sam wasn’t the creepy Uncle nobody wanted at Thanksgiving dinner. Media, Hollywood, and Government have colluded to divide us into Tribes, and it’s definitely taking its toll. Funny…..I was taught to judge people by what they do and how they act, not by what does or doesn’t dangle between their legs or how much melanin they have in their skin. It makes me wonder if Martin Luther King would weep at the absolute destruction of the future he spoke of in his “I Have a Dream” speech. I guess he’s spinning, along with the Founders, in his grave like a rotisserie chicken in hyperdrive.

In choosing between policy platforms in this election, the choice is clear. Trump represents a return to Americanism, more-than-competitive tax rates, school choice, border security, energy independence, fiscal responsibility, and opportunity based on individual merit regardless of economics, ethnicity, and education.

Hillary represents at least 4 more years of the disastrous course Obama has set us on…..at best.  She hasn’t even attempted to lay out an agenda…….just ask her supporters and they give inane, ignorant answers like, “She’s for women”, or “it’s her turn”. Most have fallen victim to the massive media campaign against Trump and buy into the “he’s a racist”, or “he hates homosexuals” pablum……yet when I, or anyone else, asks for examples of this supposed hate, they have nothing to say because there isn’t anything. Or worse, they quote lies that have been exposed through leaked emails and campaign communications.

So what if Hillary has been outed as telling the American people one thing, and her Wall Street donors another? So what if she fearmongers LGBT and feminist groups about Trump while she has taken millions from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other nations that execute homosexuals and require women to only be in public with a male guardian?  So what her husband met with the Attorney General and her Under-Secretary bribed FBI officials during the investigation into her criminality, resulting in non-indictment? So what her campaign and PACs are ON VIDEO planning and executing violence and fake protests at her opposition rallies? So what she claims to be an advocate for African Americans while supporting and funneling money into groups like Planned Parenthood, who are responsible for the fetal genocide of millions upon millions of mostly African American babies? So what her campaign chief, John Podesta, has been exposed as being in bed with Putin and his oil stocks, yet they and the media act as if Trump is?

Trump is crass and a narcissist, and as a private citizen made some lewd comments. His words and deeds as a private citizen mean absolutely nothing compared with the words and deeds of a Senator and then Secretary of State while speaking and acting on the behalf of The United States.  Why are so many so ignorant of the difference? Donald Trump’s fingerprints are NOT ON A SINGLE LAW OR POLICY that has had  any effect on our lives, yet Hillary has taken pay-for-play dollars from hostile nations and corporations while representing The United States, and has used every position she has ever held to enrich herself and deceive the public.

America’s positions and lead-from-behind policies under President Obama and “The Butcher of Benghazi” Hillary Clinton have led to a world in chaos. Virtually everything either has touched has turned into a steaming pile of dung. Healthcare? Check. Military? Check. Unemployment? Check. Immigration? Check. Terrorism? Check. Tribalism and racial division? Big fat check.

Mikhail Gorbachev, former premier of the U.S.S.R., now says that the U.S. and Russia are closer to war than ever before, all while Clinton and Kaine bizarrely made several references to nuclear war in their respective debates. There are millions obsessed with rumor and innuendo of a private citizen’s escapades while Russia has moved at least 50 nuclear tipped missiles to the border of Poland, recalled its foreign personel, and had a nation-wide nuclear drill. Who cares that we are illegally involved in Syria’s ( a sovereign nation that has called for assistance from its ally, Russia ) civil war, and that it has brought us to the very brink of war? Even nutty Green Party candidate Jill Stein is warning that Hillary would start another world war………..yet many are obsessed with the never-ending hit and run Trump accusers, whose timing is awfully convenient, and for whom the media doesn’t investigate or retract when shown to be false.

We may not be able to stave off the coming storm, but we should not choose the candidate, Hillary Clinton, who is seeding the clouds and cheering the thunder.

War Is The Answer

In the past days I have been seriously thinking about which direction to go in the pursuit of my next column. The problem is, there are so many horrible things going on at once that it is difficult to pick just one or two to address. Should I talk to you about the sham that is the selection process for our next president? How about the collusion of both parties to continue abusing and soiling our Senate and so-called House of Representatives?  Or maybe about the huge racial and cultural divide currently splitting the legal population? Oh, or better yet, the absolute abject failure of our co-opted “Press” in giving any unbiased, no-agenda, reporting on any of the issues I just mentioned, or anything else for that matter?

Then it came to me. War is the answer. If you logically go through every single major issue facing the United States…….and what the hell let’s throw in the rest of the globe…..the answer to any question is war. Not just in the middle east, not just on your t.v., but on scale on par with nothing we have seen before. Don’t get me wrong, this is the absolute last thing I would want to happen, and it would be awful in more ways than I can imagine. The big problem is that as soon as you look outside these porous borders of ours, every issue and argument seems to be leading to an unfortunate yet inevitable conclusion. Let’s pick a few points and follow the bouncing betty.

Over the past 7 years the United States has either ignored or abandoned every commitment made to our strategic allies all over the world. Whether I agree with what those commitments were and if they were wise decisions matters not, as it sets a very dangerous example. We have failed to honor our commitments to defend free satellite states of the Old Soviet Empire, as Putin gobbles up former chunks of the once dead USSR. We have reduced our military in number and technical development. What once was a formidable fighting force is now a social experiment for transgendered, homosexual, and female soldiers. Our Navy has been reduced by half, with more cuts in the pipeline. In fact, our Prez now demands any increase in military spending be matched with more welfare and entitlement dollars. We have drawn “red lines” all over the middle east, each nothing more than an empty political tool for domestic gain with no thought to the lives that teeter on such proclamations. In my opinion, the U.S. has no business interfering in other nations affairs……but when the Chief Executive makes a threat, it should not be as empty as the suit he wears.

We have built ISIS. Do you hear that leftist weirdos? To those that claimed we created Al Qaeda during the Bush years and yakked on and on about Haliburton, etc., etc.. Well here’s your new crusade ready made for you. By leaving Iraq ( and we can discuss whether we should have ever been there or not later ) with an announced timeline and regardless of the state of affairs, we opened the door to islamists to run wild. In fact, once again in my opinion, we systematically used the “arab spring” to topple leaders like Mubarak in Egypt and Qadhafi in Libya, and have been trying to do the same to Syria’s Assad. Have you asked yourself why? After seeing the obvious mistake of removing Saddam as a barrier to Iran and a hammer to the islamists, why would we continue to follow the same disastrous course all over the middle east? It’s pretty clear that the 7th century headchoppers populating that part of the world were scared to death of the brutal dictators that held an iron grip on them. Well guess what? We traded a handful of distasteful, power mad, dictators for thousands of them that cannot be reasoned with or diplomatically handled.

We have slapped our ally Israel in the face at every turn. Calm down, Jew-haters, I know there is a bunch of people who think that the “Eveeel Jooooooose” are responsible for all the world’s ills, but if you’re one of these folks you need to read a book or two and realize what kind of company you’re in ( and it ain’t good ). Israel is the only democratic nation in the region, and our on-paper ally, yet we have acted as much as their enemy as anyone else……..denying fly over access to their jets for a preemptive Iran strike, denying ammunition and arms, and refusing to honor our promises of joint defense. And speaking of Iran……hey America! do you realize who our new best buddy is? It’s Iran! You know……the folks who have been killing and maiming American soldiers all over the world for decades! The folks who chant “death to America” and mean it…….you know, the freakin’ bad guys! Now we are giving them a nuke!  Not only that but in the super-secret agreement our Caesar made for us behind closed doors, we actually have an obligation to defend their so-called “peaceful” nuclear enrichment sites. Does that sound like a path to peace to you?

As a result of all of this U.S. foreign policy failure, Europe is being flooded with muslim “refugees”. As an example, there is a small town in Germany with a population of 120 that is bracing for an influx of over 700 non-german speaking “refugees” that just so happen to be 70+ percent male.** The U.K., France, Germany, and Italy are all on the receiving end of huge masses of peaceful Islamists who can’t speak the language, are dependent on social welfare/services, and are brimming with the desire to implement Sharia law on the communities they are infesting. Shoot, Obama is shipping thousands of them here for good measure, which sounds like a great idea, doesn’t it? Now in addition to hordes of illiterates from south of the border, we can throw in some terrorists too!

America is in huge debt, or as Trump would say…Yuge Debt. Our 8 trillion dollar debt at the start of our Dear Leader’s tenure has been more than doubled to over 18 trillion *.  We can never repay this debt, even as with unfunded liabilities every single person in America currently owes over a quarter of a million dollars…..even your little kids and babies. Are you good for that? See why the democrats’ promises of free college and free this or that are absolutely ridiculous at best and terrifyingly evil at worst? At the same time our education system is a failure, churning out generations of idiots who think “climate change” is the most serious problem we face. I mean WTF is with that, and how are so many people so damned stupid? To think of all the huge problems we need to confront….. and yet a giant percentage of the population wants to cut our own throats in global competition so we can pee into the wind?   The weather? For real? You people think we can change the mechanics of the very universe? Wow.

Add to all of this the weight of the  global population. China is packed with a billion plus people who are mostly male and mostly deprived of any opportunity to do anything with their lives. India is brimming with young, aimless men also.  Do you think that’s an odd thing for me to mention? It’s not. Want to know why? Because countries with population crisis like that need something to do with all of those bodies, not to mention finding the resources to feed them. Historically the answer is war. When you combine poor economies with poor leadership, bad things happen. Kind of like putting American soldiers on the battlefield right next to Russian soldiers. Can someone tell me why our president is dead set on arming and funding the Islamic state, using our troops to defend them, and doing this in direct opposition to Russia – who is engaged in active combat with them? How long before an incident that leads to disaster happens?

And there you have it. All of the things I have mentioned lead to a very troubling conclusion. How does the U.S. rise out of deepening recession? How does China manage it’s population and failing economy? How does Iran use it’s newfound and America-given hegemony in the Middle East? How does Europe contain the Islamic crisis it has helped create and is so far powerless to stop? It seems that no matter what the question is, sadly and predictably,  a World War is The Answer.  We won the last one, but I fear that a nation of climate changin’, gender reassignin’, celebrity worshippin’, Bernie Sanders lovin’, Benghazi lyin’, spray tannin’, Ferguson burnin’, and selfie takin’ whiners is ill equipped to win, or even survive, the next one.
