Current Events Ramblings, October 16

The Texas Rangers are going back to the World Series.  Good for them.  I think they've got a very good chance of winning it.  I hope so.

Recent headline:  "Obama Sends 100 US Troops to Uganda to Help Combat Lord's Resistance Army"

What in the world...?

How many of you have ever even heard of "Lord's Resistance Army"?  And Obama is wasting American tax dollars, spending money the government doesn't have, on an utterly worthless venture.  He did the same in Libya.

For you Bush-bashers, what's the difference between this and what George Bush did in Iraq?   Scale has nothing to do with it.  It's the principle of the thing.  If Obama can send 100 troops to Uganda (without Congress declaring war, as the Constitution authorizes), then he can send 200.  And if he can send 200, he can send 300.  And if he can send 300, he can send 1,000.  And if he can send 1,000, he can send 10,000...or 100,000...and keep them there as long as he wants to. 

I don't want anybody, any time, to say anything more to me about George W. Bush and Iraq.    At least I've heard of Sadam Hussein.  I haven't the faintest idea who is ruling Uganda.  If anybody even is ruling it.  And...why do they deserve one, thin, dime of American taxpayer money?

The United States is being overrun by millions of people who have come into the country illegally.  And Obama won't do one single, solitary thing about it--except fight as hard as he can against anybody who tries to.  But he'll waste American tax dollars defending some tinpot dictator on the back side of the moon against some other tinpot dictator from the back side of Mars. 

He needs to spend more time playing golf.  Like 7 days a week.

The "Occupy Wall Street" mob have got one thing right:  the government should never have bailed out the banks.  The government should never bail out anybody.  But I wonder how many of these protesters are on some kind of government welfare assistance.  They've got their hands out, taking taxpayer money, but protesting the banks doing the same thing.

And probably using their welfare checks to play the lottery, all the while decrying "corporate greed."

Nancy Pelosi...every time that woman opens her mouth, she says something stupid.  Recently, there was an abortion vote of some kind in the House, and Pelosi said that every Republican who voted against abortion voted to let "women die on the floor."

I'd be utterly embarassed to be a Democrat with that woman as a high ranking member of the party.

Hey, Nancy, 11 Democrats voted to let "women die on the floor," too.

And, Nancy, every Democrat who votes for abortion votes to let babies die in the womb.  Or to have some doctor suck their brains out.
