Eric Holder buying love

The civil rights for terrorist group are a large part of the democrat electorate and the administration is rewarding them with a show trial in New York. The trial will not buy the respect of Al Queda or the love of the Muslim world, especially after the attorney general assured us of a conviction. The administration will not realize that we are under attack by religous zealots who are acting in concert, waging war against the West and the U. S. in particular. They prefer to treat these terrorist acts as incidental crimes. It is a denial of reality . The cost of security alone at this show trial will be well over 100 million dollars, the total cost unknowable. I don't believe the defense attorneys are acting pro bono and neither are the prosecutors. The terrorists have a new weapon, keep trying and getting caught and Obama's Justice Department will break the treasury prosecuting your acts.

Ostrich Politics

The United States has the largest foreign debt in history. Our leaders have put a mortgage on our future and garnishment on our souls. They continue to act as if we were still a first rate industrial nation of unlimited wealth. The only reason we still exert influence is our military power.
Our politicians believe the country "can have its cake and eat it". Our citizenry doesn't want to look at the lower standard of living that profligate spending and borrowing will cause preferring to spend time with their feckless leaders promoting parochial causes. Paraphrasing Egar Lee Masters they diddle with self pleasing notions while reality roars in the pines.

vox populi pelosi

Nancy Pelosi in her mind speaks for the "American People". It is truly annoying when any politician claims to speak for the "American People". When one so divorced as Pelosi from the lives of the "American People" makes this claim it makes me shudder at her arrogance. She has claimed, against poll evidence to the contrary, to speak for us on healthcare, stimulus , climate change, taxes,immigration, and just about every conceivable topic. The only topic overlooked is her own unpopularity with the"American People".
