Random Thoughts - Forty-Eight

I find Lt. Col. Ralph Peters somewhat abrasive, but were I President, I would want him for my National Security Adviser. Smart, knowledgeable, and speaks his mind. I wish our current President appreciated people like that.

Speaking of our present President, I am getting tired of writing about him. But there is just so much that needs to be said. In truth, there is way too much that needs to be said.

I always felt that liberals thought the rest of us were stupid. Now one has the chutzpah to come right out and state it publicly. MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare has stated publicly the the stupidity of the American people is responsible for getting Obamacare passed. Let see. You sneak around doing everything in secret. Everyone in the administration lies about what is being done. Then you make it so convoluted that it is barely understandable. And we are stupid. Right. Actually it was the liberal politicians that pushed it through that were stupid. Most of the folks got it, hate it, and don't want it. 

Is there nothing that Obama can keep his meddling fingers off of? The internet is just fine. It needs no government interference. Obama, the Tsar of All the States of America. Bit by bit, piece by piece, they are stealing our freedom. If you are young you don't have the perspective to realize how much we have lost.

I don't mean to make a rush to judgement, but it appears that the only difference between our outgoing AG and the new nominee is that one of them wears a dress.

Why is the Obama administration disarming the border patrol. With the cartels in Mexico, patrolling the border is dangerous enough. Now the government is taking away their M4 rifles under the pretext that they need repairs. Patrol agents are now sharing weapons. A shooters weapon is as personal as his underwear. M4s are made to be repaired in the field. If they actually find an M4 that is unservicable, the government owns enough rifles to give the agent a replacement. This is unnecessary and dangerous. One has to ask why?

Not to be redundant but my wife and I shop on line a lot. Clothes, books, miscellaneous stuff, and now food. In this process we deal with some big complicated commercial websites. Sites where one must open an account, arrange means of payment, select from a plethora of products, and arrange shipping. Each and every one of them works beautifully. It seems to me they had to really make an effort to screw up the Obamacare website that bad. Cronyism?

 Congratulations to the brilliant people at the European Space Agency. After a ten year flight into space their probe landed on a comet out there in the void. That is like picking up your thirty pound Barrett, shooting from the shoulder, hitting a dime at two thousand yards, with your eyes closed. Actually, it is probably harder than that. Great job by great engineers and scientists.

Cold weather is on the way so here is another of my day lilies to keep the summer.
