Government Response

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on May 25th, 2015

We should all remember that America is a nation of both laws and government agencies who are the sole holders of the mandates to affect the enforcement of those laws and to provide the services and protections deriving from them. It’s really not our place to do other than report what we observe. 😉

While hiking down along the border this morning, I saw a Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River. He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying.

Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back. If they didn’t get help, they’d surely drown.

Being a responsible Texan and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security.

It is now 4 PM, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded. I’m starting to think I wasted two stamps.

Please also remember that you cannot be compelled to render any form of aid or assistance to anyone. Nor can you be compelled to report a crime that you witness.

Feel free to let the various and sundry agencies of the government respond to such things.

Presidential Legacies

Posted in Humor, Politics on May 23rd, 2015

All Presidents are concerned about their legacies. Having essentially reach both the pinnacle and end of public meaningfulness, the tend to worry about how history will remember them. In this it is logical to conclude that Obama is more concerned with this than most of predecessors.

Of course, Obama is also in the lamentable position of having his legacy tied tightly with that of his immediate predecessor, President George W. Bush Jr.. This will cause the boy’s legacy to be compared to Bush’s.

Obama’s Immediate Threat

Posted in Humor, Politics on May 23rd, 2015

In the boy’s May 20th speech to the most recent graduating class of Coast Guard Cadets Obama expressed his belief that the most serious national security threat to our nation is Climate Change. 😯

Tides of War
If The Ocean Rises, Shoot It!

Ah well. I guess that, if Obama manages to get the military focused up adapting to- and combating the great quixotean windmill of Anthropogenic Climate Change, the JV Team might get their shot and that would remove the most serious national security threat to our nation, if not in a manner that would be easy to countenance.
