The Holy Grail of Truth

Rejoice!

The Holy Grail of Truth has been found!  It bears the name LexisNexis!  And it quenches the thirst of all who partake of its’ contents.

Now, gone are the days when snake tongued politicians could say whatever you wanted to hear and leave you beguiled.  Present are the days of refining our selection of representatives by their intellectual honesty and integrity.

Rejoice!

As the digital age has bestowed upon us the ability to remember, or at least be reminded.
We find strength in knowing that this election cycle and every one of them from this point forward will be a subject of easy access to words, and acts, from long ago.  Information previously held tightly by the self anointed.

Rejoice!

Now the aspiring leaders and representatives of the people will be subject to our review and held accountable for actions no longer forgotten.  Joy will be realized as we revel in the words of our ideological enemies used as weapons against them.  And, Hope will be nurtured as those words are used to hone a new class of ideologically consistent champions.

We, the people, can now recount promises with perfect accuracy and rate performance according to what was pledged.  No longer can there be the disingenuous claims of “That’s not what I said!” or “That’s not what I meant!” as all is now available to any who will listen… and watch.

Hear the lament of those who held sway over opinion… an overt pine for the bygone days of Information Monarchies and Editorial Princes.  But don’t find truth there…
It is exactly that which they disdain which saves us.  It is the crumbling of information Kingdoms and fragmentation of the Old Media Church combined with the new age of the Gutenberg Press that has changed the face of modern politics… for the better… and forever. It is why there is any faith to be found in what is a brilliant system whose primary participant, the electorate, has been mis-lead to a communal end by a Leftist Aristocracy.

So raise a chalice and,

Fear not!  The End is Not Near!

(Well.. it’s kind of near.  At least as close as I ever want to see it.  Anyway, I’m designing a new drinking game built around hypocrisy and politicians being confronted with their own words.  I’m trying to have it up and running before the debates… as that is when it should be the most applicable.  As always, I’m open for any suggestions from the dedicated.)

Oh, and LexisNexis is a division of Reed Elsevier which trades under: RUK


Is America Profiling Middle Eastern Men

What was once considered anathema to a civilized society by the Left is now the new standard upon which we can start killing people.

Why is President Obama profiling Bashar Al-Assad?  Where is the ACLU when you need them?  If Bashar was trying to get on an airplane would the criteria be the same?

“It’s most likely… we’re pretty confident, Assad used chemical weapons.” – President Barack Obama in St. Petersburg Russia 090613

Well darn it… if we’re pretty confident that it’s most likely, then let’s start dropping bombs on them.

The current Administration’s approach to Syria continues to defy reason.

But when you’re a Liberal, who needs reason?

“…400 of them (casualties of the gas attack) were children!” – President Barack Obama again in St. Petersburg Russia 090613

Yes, no debate there.  (Ignore the paradox of our actions in the Middle East and the loss of children’s lives.)

A quick review of hot spots around the world presents over 150 active areas of conflict where men, women and CHILDREN are being killed.  Right now.

If this is now the threshold we are using to get involved in violent conflicts world over it is going to be a busy few years.  It will also be expensive in terms of man and material… not to mention money, all of which we are short of.  But that aside, it would be a genuinely historic launch of the very “American Imperialism” the Left has accused their opposition of for decades.  This is the work of policeman… unless there is a national interest I am unaware of.  Bueller?   Bueller?  Anyone?

Confused?

Welcome to the party.

Progressives have gotten away with saying whatever you want to hear for 100 years.  The problem they now face is our memories have been enhanced by the ability to store and retrieve information.  (LexisNexis)  Don’t think that this is a lesson lost on them, or only known to the NSA.  They are feeling the pain of their previously successful manipulation of the American public.  It’s tough for a John Kerry to state in his monotone drone that he didn’t say something he knows he indeed said when 30 seconds later some jackass like me finds it and posts it for all to see.  If there were ever a revolution that could be pointed to in 100 years from now it is that.  (The Media has lost editorial control over what information you see… and they HATE it.)

What you are watching is a direct result of Elitists in control.

The mindset is that you are too stupid to understand so those who deem themselves superior to you don’t owe you the truth.  They honestly believe that even if you were told the truth you wouldn’t get it anyway.  So sit down, shut up and vote the way they tell you to.  Otherwise they’ll have their comedians on the late night shows make fun of you, and their friends in the media take every opportunity to make you look foolish.  Get it!  Good.

Well here we are.

Another military adventure in the Middle East… and this one isn’t even for Oil.

Has anyone asked the question “Why are we not targeting Bashar directly, or at a minimum his command and control staff?”

(And frankly, what better way to get some quick defections and degrade Syria’s war fighting capability.)

If “A lesson” needs to be taught, to Whom are you teaching it?  The Chemical Weapons didn’t launch themselves.  The WMDS didn’t decide of their own volition to kill 1200 people.  There are plenty of these weapons being made as I tap this out.  They’re not going away anytime soon… so what is really going on?

If the evidence is unequivocal… sorry… if we’re pretty confident… then why not just come out and present it to the public?  What possible security concern could exist?  Why the need to keep all of the briefings behind closed doors?  I understand the protection of assets… but this was done right out in the open.  I’m “pretty confident” that this is a straight forward use of banned weapons.  Or it’s at least “likely”.  Or is it as clear as that?
