In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Kerry Wants a Limited Attack

John Kerry wants a limited attack on Syria, which translates to: " Yes, I know the President I backed has less of clue than I imagined, but he hired me and I have no idea what to do, either."

Now lets add our new U.N. ambassador, who could probably make a few college kids cringe, with her knowledge of current events, but will have her ass handed to her in a bag, when the Russians are through with her.

To complete this, the people at the U.N. are talking about talking, which is what the U.N. is good for. After all, when a foreign government has nothing to offer the dumbass brother-in-law of a big financial donor, you make them an ambassoder. Talking is important, since there is nothing else they can be trusted with.

Meanwhile, in the real world, people are dying, governments are financing these deaths and our President has overloaded his ass with his mouth. He's talking about military action to a military that had all their funds cut.

So, now what happens? I imagine there will be some calls for more money for the military, which will be politically disastrous for some candidates of progressive flavor and the mid-terms will be a bloodbath for incumbents.

Will we go to war? No. We don't have the money, most in the government know it's a bad idea, so they'll sit on their hands and our President will probably go on vacation.


  1. I thought he WAS on vacation.
    He's back?

    1. Physically he's back, but he's never been back mentally.

    2. Unless something has changed, the man has been on vacation his entire life.

  2. Wow what a great military plan. First, you go on world wide television and tell the people you are going to attack "Here we come." Second, you tell the same people that we have ships off their coast with missiles and they are going to target certain sites. Now, they can move important items somewhere else and they can put innocent civilians in those sites so that when we strike we kill the wrong folks and that will piss off the rest of the nations. Third, we tell them we are only going to use a certain type of devise for the attacks and we will only send in a certain number of those. Fourth, we then put on television the location of our ships so that when the enemy decides to counter attack they will not have to guess where the targets are located. This is what happens when you have people running the military who have no idea what they are doing. Reminds me of Vietnam where we were running all over taking areas and then moving out of them. No clear cut objective and no real plan. Just a knee jerk reaction.

    1. Yep. When you allow politicians to make military decisions, you find they're as feckless at that task as being a politician.
