It's hard to be positive about the future in the United States, at least in the short term. Almost each time there is a holiday, Mr. Obama pushes through an Executive Edict which limits or takes more of our Constitutional rights away, and almost no one except foreign news sources and folks in the blogosphere express concern. Somehow, when our chief diplomat in Benghazi, Libya, his team, and the Special Forces staff came under attack, our present administration failed to send help and our former Secretary of State says while being questioned during a Congressional Inquiry, "What difference does it make now ?" No one seems to be answering these questions. Our federal government owes almost 17 trillion dollars and at some point when we can't pay just the interest, who knows what happens ? Certainly, the US dollar will cease to be the World's Reserve Currency, as it has been since the British pound sterling occupied that slot until after the last world war. When the dollar is no longer the World Reserve Currency, the US will no longer have the easy international credit it has enjoyed. If you think there's no industry here now, wait until then. Meanwhile our own NSA is "capturing data" concerning our phone and internet use for later review. Even the Obamunists are starting to say, "Hey, wait a minute".
All of a sudden, hold the line. We have "an increase in terrorist chatter" which matches the amount we had before 9-11. You mean we had an increase in chatter and didn't have an alert before 9-11 ? All of a sudden, the US closes more than twenty of its embassies yesterday, because they have heard that the aspiring "terrorists are in position". Now, the US government has decided to keep these embassies closed for a week.
Am I being cynical or does it sound fishy to you ? We have an awful lot of problems domestically. I just don't believe anything the current regime says anymore. The House and the Senate don't get points for honesty lately either. Where is their outrage for the things which have clearly gone on ? We have Benghazi, anger over the actions of Attorney General Eric Holder, more dilutions of the Constitution, Mr. Obama planning more vacations for more millions, We have an IRS scandal. We have domestic anger and uncertainty over the NSA's "capture" of our private phone and internet data. We have the swollen IRS poised to enforce Obamacare when everyone agrees that parts of it will be truly financially detrimental to the nation as a whole, and not too healthy for health care here either. The IRS was doing so well with it's other assignment too. We have Edward Snowden gaining temporary Russian asylum. We have desperate attempts to furthur regulate and control guns in the US. Even mainstream financial analysts think that Detroit may signal the beginning of a host of American cities declaring bankruptcy, and ultimately an American financial collapse. Does it seem just a little convenient to you that a mythical terrorist attack is being watched for perhaps to reunite us under a common purpose, and to enable the Obama Regime to tighten the cuffs just a bit more, and take over more aspects of American life ?
On a slightly different topic, this is a very popular video in Egypt. Somewhat more suggestive than I thought Muslim women, even belly dancers, were.
