Susan Rice is the Wrong Focus

I'm getting a tired of watching Republican greyhounds (?) chase that mechanical rabbit Susan Rice around the track. She is being used as a distraction. She either is a playing Charlie McCarthy and mouthing words put in her mouth or she is doing it willingly in exchange for some future reward. None of that matters. Either way she is not qualified to be Secretary of State.

The real question is (1) Why didn't we have security at the consulate and (2) why wasn't anyone sent to help when they came under fire?

Stop running in a circle and call a hearing!

Gimme Cheese

New Hampshire natives used to be proud of the motto "Live Free or Die". After the election, and looking at the way the counties voted, the new motto should be "Free Stuff for Me".

I now believe some of the pundits that say we have had a cultural shift in the country. The culture in NH used to be one of independence. But now it seems that everyone wants some government cheese. We can't vote our way out of this.

Thoughts on Sandy

New Orleans was chastised in the press for holding Mardi Gras in 2006, even though Katrina was several months in the past. Where is the outrage about the New York marathon? Portalets, power and police for the runners but none for the people?

New Jersey turns back non-union electrical workers from Alabama! So much for eliminating red tape. Go freeze in the dark.

Where are the Disaster Recover Centers with FEMA, Blue Tarps, MREs and SBA loans?

Will there be FEMA trailers in Central Park?

People, you watched several disasters run their course since 2005 and should have known that you would be on your own for several days and without electricity for several weeks. And yet when someone puts a TV camera in your face you cry about not getting any help? It's time to put on your big boy pants and help yourself.

The MSM would have you believe that it is all sweetness and cooperation in the dark areas of NYC. Somehow I find that hard to believe.

I wonder how the people in the high rise apartments are doing? Are they piling their feces in the bath tub? How are they cooking? Has their refrigerator begun to smell? I guess no main stream news people want to climb 20 floors in order to find out.

Finally, things are not going to get better in the affected areas any time soon. There will be no groceries, schools, water or sewage anytime soon. You will be crapping and peeing in a 5 gal bucket for weeks. You will soon learn to read the symbology of disaster. You have just been put in a time machine and transported from the 21st century to the 18th. If you are smart, you will pack the bug out bag and head for civilization.

And I don't want to hear "They deserve it because they live below sea level." ever again!

Head Count

The swordsman in Saudi was unemployed last month. There were no executions in the Kingdom. Head count remains at 56 for the year.
