While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.
The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'Post Turtle''.
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain. "You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just Wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with."
Best explanation I've heard yet.

"You're In God's Hands Now.."
"You're In God's Hands Now..."The 21-year old American B-17 pilot glanced outside his cockpit and froze. He blinked hard and looked again, hoping it was just a mirage. But his co-pilot stared at the same horrible vision. "My God, this is a nightmare," the co-pilot said."He's going to destroy us," the pilot agreed.The men were looking at a gray German Messerschmitt fighter hovering just three feet off their wingtip. It was five days before Christmas 1943, and the fighter had closed in on their crippled American B-17 bomber for the kill.Brown's Crippled B-17 Stalked by Stigler's ME-109The B-17 pilot, Charles Brown, was a 21-year-old West Virginia farm boy on his first combat mission. His bomber had been shot to pieces by swarming fighters, and his plane was alone, struggling to stay in the skies above Germany . Half his crew was wounded, and the tail gunner was dead, his blood frozen in icicles over the machine guns.But when Brown and his co-pilot, Spencer "Pinky" Luke, looked at the fighter pilot again, something odd happened. The German didn't pull the trigger. He stared back at the bomber in amazement and respect. Instead of pressing the attack, he nodded at Brown and saluted. What happened next was one of the most remarkable acts of chivalry recorded during World War II.USAAF Lt. Charles BrownCharles Brown was on his first combat mission during World War II when he met an enemy unlike any other.Revenge, not honor, is what drove 2nd Lt. Franz Stigler to jump into his fighter that chilly December day in 1943. Stigler wasn't just any fighter pilot. He was an ace. One more kill and he would win The Knight's Cross, German's highest award for valor.Yet Stigler was driven by something deeper than glory. His older brother, August, was a fellow Luftwaffe pilot who had been killed earlier in the war. American pilots had killed Stigler's comrades and were bombing his country's cities.Stigler was standing near his fighter on a German airbase when he heard a bomber's engine. Looking up, he saw a B-17 flying so low it looked like it was going to land. As the bomber disappeared behind some trees, Stigler tossed his cigarette aside, saluted a ground crewman and took off in pursuit.As Stigler's fighter rose to meet the bomber, he decided to attack it from behind. He climbed behind the sputtering bomber, squinted into his gun sight and placed his hand on the trigger. He was about to fire when he hesitated. Stigler was baffled. No one in the bomber fired at him.He looked closer at the tail gunner. He was still, his white fleece collar soaked with blood. Stigler craned his neck to examine the rest of the bomber. Its skin had been peeled away by shells, its guns knocked out. One propeller wasn' turning. Smoke trailed from another engine. He could see men huddled inside the shattered plane tending the wounds of other crewmen.Then he nudged his plane alongside the bomber's wings and locked eyes with the pilot whose eyes were wide with shock and horror.Luftwaffe Major Franz Stiglerpressed his hand over the rosary he kept in his flight jacket. He eased his index finger off the trigger. He couldn't shoot.It would be murder.Stigler wasn't just motivated by vengeance that day. He also lived by a code. He could trace his family's ancestry to knights in 16th century Europe . He had once studied to be a priest. A German pilot who spared the enemy, though, risked death in Nazi Germany. If someone reported him, he would be executed.Yet Stigler could also hear the voice of his commanding officer, who once told him: "You follow the rules of war for you -- not your enemy. You fight by rules to keep your humanity."Alone with the crippled bomber, Stigler changed his mission. He nodded at the American pilot and began flying in formation so German anti-aircraft gunners on the ground wouldn't shoot down the slow-moving bomber. (The Luftwaffe had B-17s of its own, shot down and rebuilt for secret missions and training.) Stigler escorted the bomber over the North Sea and took one last look at the American pilot. Then he saluted him, peeled his fighter away and returned to Germany ."Good luck," Stigler said to himself. "You're in God's hands now..." Franz Stigler didn't think the big B-17 could make it back to England and wondered for years what happened to the American pilot and crew he encountered in combat.Charles Brown, with his wife, Jackie (left), with Franz Stigler, with his wife, Hiya.As he watched the German fighter peel away that December day, 2nd Lt. Charles Brown wasn't thinking of the philosophical connection between enemies. He was thinking of survival.He flew his crippled plan, filled with wounded, back to his base in England and landed with one of four engines knocked out, one failing and barely any fuel left. After his bomber came to a stop, he leaned back in his chair and put a hand over a pocket Bible he kept in his flight jacket. Then he sat in silence.Brown flew more missions before the war ended. Life moved on. He got married, had two daughters, supervised foreign aid for the U.S. State Department during the Vietnam War and eventually retired to Florida .Late in life, though, the encounter with the German pilot began to gnaw at him. He started having nightmares, but in his dream there would be no act of mercy. He would awaken just before his bomber crashed.Brown took on a new mission. He had to find that German pilot. Who was he? Why did he save my life? He scoured military archives in the U.S. and England . He attended a pilots' reunion and shared his story. He finally placed an ad in a German newsletter for former Luftwaffe pilots, retelling the story and asking if anyone knew the pilot.On January 18, 1990, Brown received a letter. He opened it and read: "Dear Charles, All these years I wondered what happened to that B-17, did she make it home? Did her crew survive their wounds? To hear of your survival has filled me with indescribable joy..."It was Stigler.He had left Germany after the war and moved to Vancouver , British Columbia , in 1953. He became a prosperous businessman. Now retired, Stigler told Brown that he would be in Florida come summer and "it sure would be nice to talk about our encounter." Brown was so excited, though, that he couldn't wait to see Stigler. He called directory assistance for Vancouver and asked whether there was a number for a Franz Stigler. He dialed the number, and Stigler picked up."My God, it's you!" Brown shouted as tears ran down his cheeks.Brown had to do more. He wrote a letter to Stigler in which he said: "To say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU on behalf of my surviving crewmembers and their families appears totally inadequate."The two pilots would meet again, but this time in person, in the lobby of a Florida hotel. One of Brown's friends was there to record the summer reunion. Both men looked like retired businessmen: they were plump, sporting neat ties and formal shirts. They fell into each other' arms and wept and laughed. They talked about their encounter in a light, jovial tone.The mood then changed. Someone asked Stigler what he thought about Brown. Stigler sighed and his square jaw tightened. He began to fight back tears before he said in heavily accented English: "I love you, Charlie."Stigler had lost his brother, his friends and his country. He was virtually exiled by his countrymen after the war. There were 28,000 pilots who fought for the German air force. Only 1,200 survived.The war cost him everything. Charlie Brown was the only good thing that came out of World War II for Franz. It was the one thing he could be proud of. The meeting helped Brown as well, says his oldest daughter, Dawn Warner.They met as enemies but Franz Stigler, on left, and Charles Brown, ended up as fishing buddies.Brown and Stigler became pals. They would take fishing trips together. They would fly cross-country to each other homes and take road trips together to share their story at schools and veterans' reunions. Their wives, Jackie Brown and Hiya Stigler, became friends.Brown's daughter says her father would worry about Stigler's health and constantly check in on him."It wasn't just for show," she says. "They really did feel for each other. They talked about once a week." As his friendship with Stigler deepened, something else happened to her father, Warner says "The nightmares went away."Brown had written a letter of thanks to Stigler, but one day, he showed the extent of his gratitude. He organized a reunion of his surviving crew members, along with their extended families. He invited Stigler as a guest of honor.During the reunion, a video was played showing all the faces of the people that now lived -- children, grandchildren, relatives -- because of Stigler's act of chivalry. Stigler watched the film from his seat of honor."Everybody was crying, not just him," Warner says.Stigler and Brown died within months of each other in 2008. Stigler was 92, and Brown was 87. They had started off as enemies, became friends, and then something more.After he died, Warner was searching through Brown's library when she came across a book on German fighter jets. Stigler had given the book to Brown. Both were country boys who loved to read about planes.Warner opened the book and saw an inscription Stigler had written to Brown:In 1940, I lost my only brother as a night fighter. On the 20th of December, 4 days before Christmas, I had the chance to save a B-17 from her destruction, a plane so badly damaged it was a wonder that she was still flying.The pilot, Charlie Brown, is for me, as precious as my brother was. Thanks Charlie.Your Brother in Arms

The 28th Amendment, 35 States and CountingThe 28th Amendment , 35 States and Counting:It will take you less than a minute to read this. If you agree, please pass it on. It's an idea whose time has come. Children of congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans. How nice! Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans. Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term. Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live. For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment. And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects. We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop. Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days most people in The United States of America will have the message.Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ”.

Most Americans assume that the U.S. military is so vastly superior to everyone else that no other nation would ever dream of fighting a full-scale war against us. Unfortunately, that assumption is dead wrong. In recent years, the once mammoth technological gap between the U.S. military and the Chinese military has been closing at a frightening pace. China has been accomplishing this by brazenly stealing our technology and hacking into our computer systems. The Pentagon and the Obama administration know all about this, but they don’t do anything about it. Perhaps the fact that China owns about a trillion dollars of our national debt has something to do with that. In any event, today China has the largest military in the world and the second largest military budget in the world. They have stolen plans for our most advanced jets, helicopters, ships and missile systems. It is estimated that stealing our technology has saved China about25 years of research and development. In addition, China is rapidly developing a new generation of strategic weapons that could potentially enable it to actually win a future war against the United States. At one time such a notion would have been unthinkable, but as you will see below, the next war with China could go very badly for the United States.
The Washington Post is reporting on a confidential report that was prepared for the Pentagon, and what this report says about the extent of Chinese cyber espionage is absolutely startling. Will China know ALL of our secrets at some point? The following is a brief excerpt from the Washington Post article about the theft of our military technology by China. It turns out that Chinese hackers have gotten their hands on plans for almost all of the new cutting edge weapons systems that we have been developing…
One military expert that the Washington Post showed the report to was absolutely stunned…
But it isn’t just hackers that the U.S. military needs to be concerned about.
The truth is that the Chinese are stealing secrets from us any way that they can.
For example, the Chinese use attractive young women to seduce our defense contractors. In fact, as the Washington Timesrecently reported, one 59-year-old American man was recently charged with passing very sensitive secrets to a 27-year-old Chinese “honeypot” that he was seeing…
Another way that China is gaining a strategic advantage over the U.S. is by getting the U.S. military to become increasingly dependent upon them. According to Forbes, now the U.S. military is even leasing a Chinese satellite for communications purposes…
Isn’t that crazy?
And a recent Senate report discovered that many of our most advanced weapons systems are absolutely riddled with counterfeit Chinese parts…
Who in the world would be stupid enough to allow one of their greatest strategic enemies to supply large numbers of parts for key weapons systems?
Apparently we are that stupid.
Things are particularly bad when it comes to semiconductors…
It would be bad enough if we just had to worry about counterfeit parts failing. But what if China has a way to shut some of those parts down in the event of a conflict? What if some of those parts contain “Trojan Horse” computer chips or malware?
That may sound crazy, but unfortunately Trojan Horse chips can be extremely difficult to detect. The following is from a recent Forbes article…
And as I mentioned above, China is rapidly developing a vast array of new strategic weapons which may enable it to actually win the next war with the United States.
For example, China has been developing a new generation of inter-continental and submarine-launched nuclear missiles.
The submarine-launched missiles are of particular concern…
Do you remember a few years ago when a Chinese sub fired a missile from just off the west coast of the United States?
We didn’t know that the sub was there. If that missile had been fired at Los Angeles it would have been destroyed long before we could have ever responded.
And don’t think that a first strike by either China or Russia is inconceivable. As I have written about previously, the U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal has already been reduced by about 95 percent, and Obama seems absolutely determined to whittle it down even more. In fact, there has been talk that the Obama administration ultimately wants to reduce our arsenal down to just 300 warheads. If Russia or China knows exactly where those warheads are, it would be very easy to take them out in less than 10 minutes with a submarine-based first strike.
And China has also reportedly been developing very sophisticated EMP weapons. The following is from a WNDreport…
But an EMP weapon does not have to be a high-altitude weapon that affects a large area. Smaller scale EMP weapons could take out a wave of fighter jets or a carrier fleet.
In a future conflict with China, we could see U.S. planes falling out of the sky or great naval vessels sitting dead in the water after being hit with EMP blasts.
But isn’t China our friend?
That is what most Americans and most American politicians seem to believe. They seem to think that China is our “buddy” and “trading partner” and that we will never have a military conflict with China.
But that is NOT how the Chinese see things.
The Chinese regard the United States as their greatest strategic threat and as an enemy that needs to be vanquished.
That is why they are constantly spying on us, hacking into our computers and stealing our technology.
That is why they are feverishly building up their military and preparing for a future war with America.
So what do you think?
Do you believe that war with China is in our future?
If so, do you think that we will win?
Pass this on... DONE!

Funny, its ok to make jokes about Catholics, the Pope, Jews, Christians, the Irish, the Italians, the Polish etc etc, but its insejjnsitive to make jokes about Muslims.The sooner we are all on same level playing field the better.
Jeff Foxworthy on Muslims:
1. If you refine heroin for a living,
but you have a moral objection to liquor,
You may be a Muslim.
2. If you own a £3,000 machine gun and a £5,000 rocket launcher,
but you can't afford shoes,
You may be a Muslim.
3. If you have more wives than teeth,
You may be a Muslim.
4. If you wipe your bum with your bare hand
but consider bacon to be unclean,
You may be a Muslim.
5. If you think vests come in two styles:
Bullet-proof and suicide.
You may be a Muslim
6. If you can't think of anyone
you haven't declared jihad against,
You may be a Muslim.
7. If you consider television dangerous
but routinely carry explosives in your clothing,
You may be a Muslim.
8. If you were amazed to discover that cell phones
have uses other than setting off roadside bombs,
You may be a Muslim.
9. If you have nothing against women
and think every man should own at least four,
You may be a Muslim.
10. If you find this offensive or racist and don't forward it,
You may be a Musim........

If strong language offends you, do not click on these links …
Quite a different picture – with the gold grill on his teeth – than the one spun by the progressive media.
Bottom line …
Before convicting George Zimmerman out of hand, you need to acquaint yourself with reality.

We have seen any number of teachers and administrators suspending or expelling students for the possession of gun pictures, making gun noises while pointing their finger, accidently bringing a small knife to school.
So where were the school authorities when Trayvon Martin brought a deadly weapon to school?
Bottom line …
A screwdriver is a poor man’s knife, so why didn’t school authorities take action to protect other students. Or is it suddenly OK to bring screwdrivers, but not knives to school in Florida?
Posted: 28 May 2013 10:19 PM PDT
The single most important question is not who failed to provide security in Benghazi before the attack, it is not who gave the stand down order during the attack, and it is certainly not who changed the talking points after the attack. And, it is not about minimizing the al Qaeda threat prior to the election.
The single most important question is: was Ambassador Stevens tasked with retrieving military weaponry, including dangerous stinger ground-to-air missiles from terrorist after they were provided by the Department of State in a covert operation to supply weapons for various rebel groups?
If not what was the Ambassador's mission that demanded his immediate presence in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11, with minimal security and a historic pattern of terrorist attacks?
What else could convince the President of the United States, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the Ambassador to the United Nations to concoct a bogus story and lie to the American people, the United Nations, our allies, and others?
Keep your eye on the ball. If this alleged activity is true, Hillary Clinton will not be the next democrat candidate for the Presidency and President Barack Obama may be impeached.
How else can this be explained … and why is the Obama Administration and the Members of Congress dancing around the issue?
Even if they toss Attorney General Eric Holder under the bus along with IRS officials, it does not answer the Benghazi question.

Here is a piece written by a liberal, Rebecca Leber, a research assistant for the ThinkProgress war room …
The progressive democrats have a dog in this fight – not that they are seeking justice, but that they are pandering to the core constituency group of Blacks. Pretty much why they must portray George Zimmerman as a racist, cop-wannabe, looking to use his concealed weapon – and, conversely, portray Trayvon Martin as a ordinary Black youngster returning from a convenience store when he was set upon by a malicious Zimmerman and shot to death.
They do not care to examine the evidence, starting with the fact that Trayvon looked nothing like the little boy portrayed in media accounts – and was a known drug-using, troublemaker who was kicked out of his mother’s house for some as yet unspecified reason. He was physically fit, muscular, and experienced in fighting. On the other hand, Zimmerman appears to be a decent, law-abiding individual who donated his time to his community’s Neighborhood Watch. He called the police and appeared to be returning to his vehicle when he was jumped and pummeled by Trayvon – pulling his gun at the last minute as his head was being bashed into the ground.
So how do the progressive liberals spin the story …
Reality check: While a person’s looks can be divorced from their behavior, you may wish to see the picture that the family is providing to the media and the picture they don’t want you to see …
The first picture is a younger Trayvon Martin; the second picture is the person who confronted George Zimmerman.
Here is what was found on Trayvon Martin’s cell phone. The origin and whereabouts of the weapon is unknown.
Bottom line …
There was clearly a rush to judgement when community activists, race-baiters, and the media believed that George Zimmerman was a white, wannabe cop and shot an unarmed Black child under suspicious circumstances. The circus was complete with the usual suspects and race-baiters chanting “no justice, no peace.”
But consider for a moment that Trayvon Martin may have brought about his own death by jumping a retreating George Zimmerman. In fact, had Zimmerman wanted to confront Martin, his gun would have been drawn. As it was, he pulled it at the last minute while his head was being bashed into the concrete sidewalk. Pictures clearly show physical trauma to his nose and back of his head – although the naysayers denied that this physical evidence even existed shortly after the confrontation.
The progressive will do or say anything to achieve their political agenda; including pandering to a constituency critical to their political ambitions. They are not about justice, just self-promotion and self-advantage. As for the ruling, it apparently only affects opening statements and that should the prosecution open the door, the defense is free to step through and examine the issue.
I believe Trayvon Martin was the aggressor, Zimmerman the victim, and that the court case will eventually produce a just verdict. If those who are already gearing up for riots will stand aside. Since the police have time to prepare for any verdict outcome, anyone who riots, loots, or destroys property should be arrested and prosecuted.

What the hell is Obama doing with Syria?
This is a civil war with Muslim terrorists on both sides. The United States has no tangible interest in Syria and no reason to stop Muslims from killing other Muslims. As for innocent people, there are none since Obama refuses to deal with the Muslim slaughter and oppression of Christians.
Bottom line …
Congress needs to exert its Constitutional authority to make war and keep the President from spilling more American blood and wasting American treasure to save the lives of terrorists and people who hate us as the infidels. We see what happened in Iraq when those ingrates took our money and their newfound freedom to sell their oil to others. And, we gained nothing by heartache in Afghanistan. Did anyone notice the Muslims in Bosnia thank us in an meaningful way?
And, where are the Muslims in the United Nations and why aren’t they sending their own people into the conflict. No matter how it turns out, someone is bound to hate the United States for its intervention. So we have absolutely nothing to gain and nothing to lose if these crazies kill themselves. Even if they use weapons of mass destruction, it is not worth one American life to save Muslims who will kill each other at a drop of a hat after they finish killing infidels.
The only people who profit from a U.S.-Syrian engagement is President Barack Obama who deflects and diffuses his many domestic crises and the arms dealers and military contractors. There is no need for the United States to intervene in a civil war in which Muslims are killing Muslims. Both sides hate America – so let them all take a magic carpet ride to hell.

If your financial institution engages in one or more of these behaviors, they are weakening your account security …
If you want to see how secure passwords may really be …
Bottom line …
The only real protection you may have is personal … your bank may reimburse any loss from your account – but only under certain conditions. It remains up to you to discover what those conditions may be … and those conditions must be in writing as employees of financial institutions are not always truthful, accurate, and cannot bind the institution to any obligation or duty relating to performance.
If your system permits it, one way to add length (and cracking time) to your password is to precede it with a long pattern of special characters. And, never use the same password for multiple accounts.
Even if you choose to avoid electronic banking, your account is still at risk.

Once more we appear to have an inkling that Lindsay Graham is following in the aisle-hopping RINO (Republican In Name Only) footsteps of his mentor and BFF, John McCain …
Progressive Eric Holder, dealing with issues of interfering with the mainstream media, and especially targeting Fox News, turns to the two most progressive people in the socialist democrat party, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) … and for some inexplicable reason to RINO republican Lindsey Graham. One would think that he would want to talk to the actual leadership of the House or Senate – but then again, they might be less sympathetic to his progressive cause than Lindsey Graham.
This story is troubling on a number of issues …
Bottom line …
Lindsey Graham is a RINO. Graham's call for a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS appears to be a dodge; as a special prosecutor is likely to complete the investigation after Barack Obama is out of office -- which means after the upcoming election cycles. Eric Holder needs to resign or be impeached.

There has never been any doubt in my mind that Members of Congress were too stupid to craft, read, and understand the actual unreadable legalese found in most legislation. And, that the staff lawyers only served to keep their members out of the slam while hiding the work of the lobbyists. Something that has just been confirmed by the progressive New York Times.
Bottom line …
What I see here is a political extortion scheme. Legislation is suggested that would impact two different groups, consumer organizations and industry supporters. Both rush forward with money and voter support to purchase politicians on both sides of the aisle. And, in the end, the industry wins and the consumer loses. The consumer organization engages in an orgy of fundraising for the next round and the industry members set aside a portion of their new profits to begin anew corrupting politicians to advance their self-serving interests.
It appears that there is no difference between the republicans and the democrats, with the exception that some democrats want to destroy the United States as part of their political agenda. The republicans just want to rob consumers blind.
Not only do we need to elect a new breed of politicians, but to convince them only to consider three-page, single-purpose bills readable in English.

I have long wondered why the United States continues to cover for Saudi Arabia after 9/11, knowing that their state religion, Whabbism, is one of the strictest and most radical sects of Islam …
And, especially when the Saudis appear to be financing the worldwide spread of Whabbist Mosques, some saying in return for a Faustian deal where some of their wealthiest citizens fund international terrorists in exchange for not attacking the Kingdom and deposing its leadership.
The Saudis have spent millions attempting to convince Westerners that Islam is the religion of peace, and if not that, Saudi Arabia is not complicit in international terrorism …
And, what better way to spread the word than establish institutional endowments and well-paid teaching sponsorships as a platform to spew favorable propaganda.
Is this spin? A difference without a distinction? At least to the hijackers in the September 11 attacks, where of the 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda, 15 were citizens of Saudi Arabia?
It really doesn’t matter who is calling for jihad as long as they have followers and funding. Both appearing to come from Saudi Arabia.
Now, we are hearing rumblings that Saudi interests may have bought overwhelming influence in the current administration …
But can it be true? Is it possible for foreign interests to have infiltrated the democrat party? How else can you explain the sudden emergence of socialists, communists, and those with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood given access, clearance, and even positions within the government? It’s not racist to condemn Barack Hussein Obama, not for his skin color, but for his policies and associations – things which are now manifestly evident as he has created a historical record.
While it is true that Obama appears to have adopted the Bush policies towards terrorism, re-named and amplified some of them, other of his acts are deeply puzzling. Continuing to call the Fort Hood shootings “workplace violence.” Arguing over whether or not Benghazi was called an act of terror in the early days following the attack. Misleading the American public about the cause and nature of the attack. And, then there is the strange case of the Boston Bomber’s Muslim friend who was shot dead by an FBI agent as he was about to give a confession. One that might have shed light on the deaths of three observant Jews on the anniversary of 9/11, their throats ritualistically slit. If it was a drug deal gone bad, why were pounds of Marijuana and at least $5,000 found at the scene?
Something stinks here.
Bottom line …
Letting someone believe something that is not true is every bit as much a falsehood as a deliberate lie. It appears that President Obama’s very actions are problematical when it comes to Islam and Saudi Arabia.
Perhaps the best answer is to maintain and open mind and throw the Congressional bums out of office in the 2014 congressional election cycle; and elect an honest American president in 2016. And, not the corrupt Hillary Clinton who may have been complicit in giving stinger missiles to terrorists in a State Department operation.
We are in deep trouble here … our President is untrustworthy and appears to be unpatriotic. Our Congress appears to have been bought and paid for. No wonder they want to disarm the American public before any public outrage develops when the truth is told – and, at some point, someone, somehow will tell the truth.
