Props to the Navy Seals.

It was great to see this weekend that our military was allowed to operate without political constraints. Thanks to the Navy Seals the Somali pirates(scumbags) were thwarted in their hijacking of another maritime crew member to be held for ransom. It's amazing how efficient our military can be when the politicians stay the hell out of things. Military decisions have to be made on a situational basis, not on which way the political winds are blowing at the time.
Unfortuanately, the day after this successful rescue two more ships were hijacked. How ridiculus can it get? You have a giant ship three football fields long being hijacked by a row boat containing five emaciated Somali's some of which are teenagers. I just don't get it. Have we all(meaning the world) come to the point where were so politically correct that we don't even want to offend criminals. How do these pirates get onboard these large ships? It seems to me the only way this could happen is if they are helped aboard. Why don't these ships just fly welcome flags. Actually I have a better idea. Why don't we just give the pirate community a seat on the UN that way we could negotiate with them? You just can't make this nonsense up. It's beyond ridiculous.
Hopefully, the world's politicians will get their heads out of their collective ass's and realize this isn't a problem of great magnitude. Theirs no need for an emergency meeting of the UN security council, or an increase in the defense budget. All that's needed is four or five strategically placed missle strikes and voila no more pirateering. See how easy that is? However, considering the state of manhood in the world nowadays the chances of that happening are slim and none. Maybe someone should just tell the pirates to put up a toll bridge and everyone could just pay as they pass under it. Im sure most world leaders would view that as a just remedy to the problem.

Whatever Happened To Representative Government?

Did you ever wonder when politicians stopped representing us as an electorate and decided to become free thinkers putting forth their own personal agendas? Did you ever find yourself saying who the hell is he representing? It's surely not me! Somehow in the two hundred and twenty two years since the ratification of the constitution something has changed. The basic tenants the founding fathers laid down to guide our country are now obscured in revisionist history,liberal constitutional interpretation, special interest and political corruption. The constitutional framers saw our country as a country of the people by the people and for the people. Not a massive governmental super structure which treads on individual states rights. The founding fathers were only a generation removed from the tyranny of the English monarchy. They used that experience when they put together our "Declaration of Independence" and later our constitution. However, it's quite apparent the years that have passed since then have created an abyss between their intention and our interpretation. Liberal scholars see the Constitution as a document no longer relative in contemporary society. A document which can be interpreted in many ways, and even open to change(as evidenced by liberal judicial rulings) and even re-writing. I see the constitution as a living, breathing document, however, not open to change and mis-interpretation. It lives and breathes in the fact that it's as relevant now as it was before. The constitution was even fore-sighted enough to allow for amendments to be added to it as society grew and evolved. These amendments don't change the basic tenants put forth by the constitution, they add to it.
Unfortunately, this centralizing of government over the years(especially of late) has taken away our representation. Our politicians rely on lobbyist's, nationally based political parties and special interest groups for their survival. Representing the people in their districts or states is secondary. Furthermore, the electorate for the most part is at best apathetic and at worst ignorant. Until a majority of the people wake up and realize where this country is headed our personal freedoms and rights will continue to be usurped. Hopefully, it won't take another 9-11 to awake the sleeping.

How Will We Cope While Savior Is Abroad?

If you woke up feeling empty today wondering what you should do next now that the annointed one(The Most Hallowed Barack Obama) is in Europe spreading his Gospel, your not alone. It's hard to imagine myself moving forward without his strong inspirational leadership let alone the country moving forward. I myself am lighting a candle and will use it as a source of focus and inspiration and as it grows shorter so will the time until the master returns.
Fortunately, like Allstate he's left us in good hands with the likes of Turbo Tax Geithner, All Illegals are Heroes Pelosi, I Didn't Know He Was a Prostitute Frank and Mr. AIG I'm Not a Crook Dodd.Together they will see us through the darkness and keep our collective consciousness focused in the Commisars absence.
Comrades, I leave you with these words once spoken many years ago. However, of late they seem to ring true once again. "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs" Karl Marx.

Wake Up America!

Ulterior Motive To Global Warming (Big Surprise There)Fox News Report

The UN Makes it Official: Global Warming Hysteria Is All About Redistributing Wealth
By Noel SheppardAssociate Editor, Newsbusters.org
For years, climate realists around the world have been warning the international community that the entire man-made global warming myth and resulting hysteria is all a scheme to redistribute wealth under the pretense of saving the planet.
In a document obtained by FOX News, the United Nations has made it official.
As FOX News executive editor George Russell reported Friday:
A United Nations document on “climate change” that will be distributed to a major environmental conclave next week envisions a huge reordering of the world economy, likely involving trillions of dollars in wealth transfer, millions of job losses and gains, new taxes, industrial relocations, new tariffs and subsidies, and complicated payments for greenhouse gas abatement schemes and carbon taxes — all under the supervision of the world body.
Those and other results are blandly discussed in a discretely worded United Nations “information note” on potential consequences of the measures that industrialized countries will likely have to take to implement the Copenhagen Accord, the successor to the Kyoto Treaty, after it is negotiated and signed by December 2009. […]
The 16-page note, obtained by FOX News, will be distributed to participants at a mammoth negotiating session that starts on March 29 in Bonn, Germany, the first of three sessions intended to hammer out the actual commitments involved in the new deal.
Some of the ideas discussed in this document eerily resembled what NASA’s James Hansen wrote to Barack Obama last December:
A rising carbon price is essential to “decarbonize” the economy, i.e., to move the nation toward the era beyond fossil fuels. The most effective way to achieve this is a carbon tax (on oil, gas, and coal) at the well-head or port of entry. The tax will then appropriately affect all products and activities that use fossil fuels. The public’s near-term, mid-term, and long-term lifestyle choices will be affected by knowledge that the carbon tax rate will be rising.
The public will support the tax if it is returned to them, equal shares on a per capita basis (half shares for children up to a maximum of two child-shares per family), deposited monthly in bank accounts. No large bureaucracy is needed. A person reducing his carbon footprint more than average makes money. A person with large cars and a big house will pay a tax much higher than the dividend.
Maybe more concerning, Obama’s 2010 budget proposal includes a carbon cap-and-trade scheme, although there is some question as to whether this will survive the coming battle on Capitol Hill. ABC’s George Stephanopoulos reported last Friday that cap-and-trade will likely be sacrificed this year as Obama and Congressional Democrats focus attention on health care.
Beyond this, recent polls have revealed an increasing skepticism by the public concerning the veracity of media reports regarding global warming. These same polls also find that the appetite for expensive solutions during a recession is waning.
Add to this the recent findings which suggest the current cooling trend that began in 1998 could last for at least another decade; the folks looking to use this manufactured crisis as a means of redistributing wealth must be realizing that the window of opportunity is starting to close.
As such, they may believe this upcoming December meeting in Copenhagen is their last chance, thereby making this 16-page document a formal game plan for what is likely the beginning of a nine month full-court press.
Let’s be honest, folks like Nobel laureate Al Gore have their reputations and their very fortunes on the line here, so we should all expect a great deal of hysterical media coverage in the near future — especially after the hurricane season begins in May.
Here’s my advice, America: Prepare now for the coming storm.
