“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.”

I'm not a partisan hack like you. I'm an independent. I'm not a republican.

I thought Reagan was good ... I thought Clinton was good.

I thought Bush, Sr. was okay.

I thought Bush, Jr stunk, and I don't think Obama is much better.

Who do you suppose is in charge of Syria - is it Bashar Hafez al-Assad? Not in your wildest dreams,
it's Putin! The 'guy' negotiating with Kerry at present thru a negotiator of course.
This 'guy' is the 'devil's' twin in case you didn't know.

Did you see the hopeful breaking news about Syria?

"Russia takes control of Syrian chemical weapons."

The story quoted Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, announcing that Syria's chemical weapons, which had been consolidated in one or two locations to allay fears that they might fall into rebel hands, are now being closely guarded by the Russian military advisers that have trained and supplied Syria's military for decades.

That encouraging turn of events must be a direct result of President Obama's Syria speech on Tuesday night, right?

Not exactly.

Unfortunately, that headline was written on Dec. 22, 2012, when the official number of Syrians killed by the Assad regime with bullets and bombs was "only" 46,176.

I remembered having seen that as I banged my head against the wall again and again during Mr. Obama's schizophrenic presidential address.

I know he's supposed to be a great orator.

But didn't he simultaneously make a moral case for a U.S. military strike to punish Syria for using chemical weapons, and a diplomatic case for delaying the attack in hopes of finding a solution from Russia that would place Syria's chemical arsenal under international control?

Meanwhile, I'm beginning to think it's time to file a class-action suit on behalf of the American people against President Obama for causing a case of national whiplash.

One day John Kerry says X. The next day the president says Y. The two simply are not communicating — and the whole country needs a good chiropractor.

It seems the only adult in the Syrian room is Vladimir Putin. The "Bastard of the Balkans" is the only leader who has stood up, taken charge and offered a plan.

But based on what the Russian foreign minister said in reports, Putin's call for Syria's chemical weapons to be placed under international control is kind of strange.

The Russians essentially are promising to do what they are already doing.

They've been overseeing Syria's chemical weapons all along. Where do we think Syria got them? Who do we think supplies Syria with its tanks and jets and poison gas? The former Soviet Union.

So now there's going to be peace breaking out in the Middle East and Putin is a Nobel Peace Prize favorite because Russia is promising to watch the chemical weapons they are already watching?

This 'guy' is really good at what he does...Take note Obama!

Kerry is just a pawn on the board, but the CHECK_MATE is coming!

Which is loss of world power for the USA

Thanks, man.

The best the guy from portland can come back with is nothing more than childish antics.

I also predict Ferrerman will now run off to the safety of his blog and debate me there, even though it will be a one sided debate without my participation. I also predict that upon reading his drivelesque pontification, all 3 members of his peanut gallery fan club will be telling him how bright he is.

So, I'd say my work here is done.

Have a good weekend, all.

Complaining? Nah! You either give the actual author credit, or you don't and thereby take credit yourself! If your moral compass allows you to freely plagarize others, why would I care? I'm not surprised, bud! You have a good one!

Actually, if I were to guess, relying solely on the contents of his posts here, if it points in any direction at all, his moral compass would point directly to the East (i. e. to the EXTREME right) or due North or South (i. e. in the most POLAR possible directions)!*grin* The poor guy!

American production is picking up , down side: it is because of robotics ... however instead of needing 10 worker the manufacturer only needs one .. and now it is getting to be cheaper to bring production back to the USA
