Current Event Ramblings, November 29

I've got a few minutes and thought I'd check in.  The world looks like it's going to hell in a handbasket, so I better write something before it does.....

I can't help but laugh at the Europeans.  Twice last century Germany almost destroyed Europe and now everybody over there is claiming that only the Germans can save it.  The whole European Union and "euro" idea was ridiculous in the first place.  It's sad in one sense.  The Europeans produced some of the greatest geniuses in history--before the 20th century.  But then they turned to socialism and have done nothing right since.  And this is the direction Obama and the Democrats is taking America.  This is stupidity gone to seed.  I mean, you don't even need to know history--this European mess is right before their eyes, and yet the Democrats insist on following the same course.  History in the making...

Barney Frank announced that he is not going to seek re-election next year.  This is good news for America, of course.  Few people have done more to destory the morals and economy of America than Barney Frank.  Make no mistake about it--the current recession lies heavily upon the Clinton administration, Chris Dodd, and Barney Frank, with a dose of Republican gutlessness tossed in.  And, of course, it's been exacerbated by the Obama administration.  Massachusetts has given America the Kennedys and Barney Frank.  That state, which led the Revolution, has, in a great sense, led another one--a counter-revolution against the very principles they started.  It's almost strange how a collective can go from one extreme to another, but it's fairly common in history.

Newt Gingrich is the current flavor-of-the-month in the Republican presidential primary race.  A Washington Post blogger is asking for people to send him any dirt they know of on Newt Gingrich.  I don't know how long Newt will survive.  He actually may have a chance at the nomination, though I still think Romney will get it (but anything is possible in politics).  Gingrich's three marriages won't hurt him.  Hard for the Democrats to use that against him when their elder statesmen, whom they all idolize, is Bill Clinton.  As long as Gingrich stays clean morally, his marriage past shouldn't be an obstacle.  He's done--and said--a lot of stupid things in the past, but he's also the smartest of the candidates and he'd make mincemeat of Obama in a debate.  The Democrats know it--that's why they are begging for dirt on him.  Romney is still the choice of the "establishment"--Republicans and Democrats.

Interestingly, some Democrats are running scared and telling Obama to drop out and turn the party over to Hillary Clinton.  Forget it.

So, in summation:

--the Euro is about to collapse (but it won't because the Germans will save it);
--Iran is about to have the bomb, and only Israel seems to care (Obama doesn't);
--the Pakistanis are in a tizzy because of a NATO air strike (the Pakistanis admit they fired first; they are burning Obama in effigy, which might be the best thing that's happened to him recently);
--the KGB (Vladimir Putin) is fixing to be in power in Russia again;
--the lice-infested "Occupy" movements have begun to be an embarrassment to the Democrats so the media isn't covering them much any more;
--and a man was arrested for viewing child porn on a cross-country air flight from Salt Lake City to Boston.  It turns out he was a college professor who bought the computer with a government grant (i.e., taxpayer money).  Government money for education--right there absent from Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, along with 99% of the rest of what the Founders didn't give Congress the power to do, but upon which it wastes the money of its constituents.  South, rise again, please...
