My opinion is that it is alr4eady here and few want to acknowledge it.
In December 2008 Russian prez, Medvedev said….,
“Russia’s interests must be secured by all means available, this is my deep conviction. First of all, by international and legal tools … but, when necessary, by using an element of force,” Reuters quoted Medvedev as saying in his end-of-year interview, broadcast on Russia’s main television stations.
Then in March 2009…….
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced today that his nation would begin a “large-scale” rearmament campaign for both its army and navy starting in 2011 in response to persisting threats to the nation’s security.
Pointing to NATO’s continued expansion and the increasing amount of military forces massing along Russia’s western borders. Medvedev warned of “a serious conflict potential” that “requires the quality modernization of our Armed Forces and acquisition of a new advanced appearance by them.”
The Russians have issued the challenge of the use of force when necessary and then announced the massive re-arming venture……but has all been silent since 2009?
Not much has been said until recently………it was the foreign minister this time…….since the US is gearing up for an expanded roll in the Syrian civil war…
“I think we fundamentally will not allow this scenario,” Lukashevich told a news briefing, adding that calls for a no-fly zone showed disrespect for international law.
“All these maneuvers about no-fly zones and humanitarian corridors are a direct consequence of a lack of respect for international law,” Lukashevich said.
He said Russia did not want a scenario in Syria that resembled the events in Libya after the imposition of a no-fly zone which enabled NATO aircraft to help rebels overthrow Muammar Gaddafi.
Appears the Cold War rhetoric of the US and Russia has returned…..and with that return….so has the Cold War.
I am looking for the GOP to have another good mid-term election……but why is that so?
In the past I use to post what I called anal-ocitys or anal statements made by our public figures……comments and statements too moronic to let them lie…….last year was the last time I would give the Assie Award…..for you see I spent so much time posting that statements that it takes away from the work I try to do on my site…..so this year I will be lumping a massive amount of stupid in one post at a time….the Babbling Buffoons Of Babylon…….
My fist post of this subject is a doozey……
First up, is the candidate for Lt. gov of Virginia……..
Rev. E.W. Jackson, the Republican nominee to be the next lieutenant governor of Virginia, has a well-documented history of saying pretty crazy things. He thinks gays are “ikky.” He compared a non-discrimination bill to “a pedophiles’ rights bill.” He accused President Obama of using NASA to “expand Islam.” He believes yoga is a gateway to Satan. And in his 2008 book, Ten Commandments to an Extraordinary Life, Jackson warned that “satanic rock,” rap music, and modern-day “witchcraft” were leading to a societal breakdown.
Next up is former (thank God) Rep. Alan West of Florida…….
On Michael Savage’s radio show Savage Nation on Thursday, Fox News host and former Florida congressman Allen West blamed women being allowed in combat roles in the military for the ongoing controversy over sexual assault in the force, and alleged that “an assault against the United States military” is underway.
Then there was Godly intervention………..
In the first days of the year, some House Republicans launched an attempt to ditch John Boehner as speaker—but he survived a vote after a number of colleagues said they’d spent the night praying, and God told them to let Boehner keep the job, notes the Washington Post in a report spotted by the Daily Intelligencer. Rep. Steve Southerland, for instance, looked to the Biblical story of Saul and David, in which David gets two chances to kill the king, but lets him go. The vote, however, was still perilously close for Boehner; had his votes been slightly fewer, the sitting speaker would have faced a second ballot for the first time in almost a century.
Has anyone ever told the morons in the GOP to STOP talking….they are doing the party NO favors….and then there is the senator from the great state of Wisconsin…….one Ron Johnson………
Johnson said people who value their local community need to get involved to help turn around what he called a “culture of entitlement” to benefits such as Medicare, Social Security, food stamps and other programs he said have led to:
The increase of the out-of-wedlock birth rate from 7.5 percent in the 1960s to more than 40 percent now.
The increase of the out-of-wedlock birth rate in African-American communities from more than 20 percent to more than 70 percent in the same time frame.
More than 46 million Americans relying on food stamps.
“In this nation, it’s the cultural tipping point that drives the financial one,” Johnson said. “I believe we have developed in this national a culture of entitlement and dependency. I think it’s undeniable.”
They are just making it way too easy for the Democrats……especially when some assclown says something like this……….
A Texas Congressman has come out in favor of an extreme abortion ban because, according to him, male fetuses masturbate.
RH Reality Check’s Adele Stan reports that Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) said that fetuses at 15-weeks “stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to believe that they could feel pain?” Burgess is a former OB-GYN.
And he is a doctor…..makes one proud, huh?
Meanwhile some want to go back 4 or 5 years……we have Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC)………
At first, Duncan shied away from directly addressing the so-called “birther” concerns, simply adding that Americans had a chance to vote Obama out in November and, in his belief, regrettably didn’t do so. Wiles then asked: “If we know they are lying about all these other things, why not go back and say ‘Well, maybe the first scandal was a lie too?’”
“There you go,” Duncan agreed. “I’m all with you. So let’s go back and revisit some of these things because Americans have questions about not only the IRS scandal but also about the president’s validity.”
Personally, I want the Babbling Buffoons to keep talking….they make too easy for people like me that cannot stand STUPID!
I have sign over my desk……”can’t fix stupid!”
The one quote that applies here…..”Stupidity Is The Deliberate Cultivation Of Ignorance”……..and the GOP is full of STUPID! Thank you make my day!
I am leery about info coming out and into the media….I recall the WMD thing that was used to get us to invade Iraq with overwhelming popular support….I just think we need to move carefully…..this will not end well for the US……but when has that fact ever stopped us from making the move?
We all have heard the atrocities that are being committed in Syria and our Neocon lawmakers that are bitching about the 93,000 Syrians that have been killed……..finally the imaginary “red line” has been crossed and the US will act…….the first step is to send arms, small arms, to the Syrian opposition…..now my thought is…..just how will the killings stop with more4 weapons introduced into the conflict? Just who among you thinks that war will be a better place with even more weapons for both sides to use on each other?
This is not going to end well for the US!
