The world is turned upside down; grass eats cows and Fox reports news. You just don't know whether to laugh or cry. Radio Shack is closing 1,100 stores, Staples the nations largest office supply retailer is closing 225 locations. J.C. Penny is closing 33 stores laying off 2,000 workers. IBM is laying off, JP Morgan Chase plans up to 4,000 lay offs. Sears/Kmart plan to close 100 more stores after a disastrous Christmas season.

The President told us in his recent State of the Union Address: "Here are the results of your efforts: The lowest unemployment rate in over five years. A rebounding housing market. A manufacturing sector that's adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. More oil produced at home than we buy from the rest of the world -- the first time that's happened in nearly twenty years. Our deficits -- cut by more than half. And for the first time in over a decade, business leaders around the world have declared that China is no longer the world's number one place to invest; America is."

FOR SALE: Suspension Bridge, located in Brooklyn, New York serious inquiries only!

Winston Smith is a rank amateur in this made for TV reality, "You just don't invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests, this is an act of aggression that is completely trumped-up in terms of its pretext. It's really 19th century behaviour in the 21st century." ~ John Kerry

John Kerry isn't a stupid man, but he plays one on TV. The Vietnam vet who once asked passionately, "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?" Now makes a mockery of his office and himself, but he's not alone in this group think or non-think.

"Now if this sounds familiar, it's what Hitler did back in the '30s," Clinton said Tuesday, according to the Long Beach Press-Telegram. "All the Germans that were " the ethnic Germans, the Germans by ancestry who were in places like Czechoslovakia and Romania and other places, Hitler kept saying they're not being treated right. I must go and protect my people, and that's what's gotten everybody so nervous." ~Hillary Clinton

The events in the Ukraine have nothing to do with Hitler or ethnicity. This is about oil and gas, isn't always about oil and gas in this country? After the fall of the Soviet Union, Boris Yeltsin agreed to disband the Warsaw Pact, after an agreement with Bill Clinton not to expand NATO into former Warsaw Pact countries. What did the US then do? It expanded NATO into former Warsaw Pact Countries. Let's not kid ourselves, the US missile defense is a gun pointed at the heart of Russia.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that (more...)
