Yup, Syria is pretty much a pile of smoking rubble, our economy is being raped by the central banks, our Constitution is being raped by career politicians, there was another terrorist attack in Israel this morning, but… what the heck!? Enjoy the gladiator match, er, I mean, Superbowl!

Mary, I love your insight and what you write is spot-on. My concern is that for too many millennials all that matters is who promises the most goodies. Obama promised cheap healthcare and it matters not that he did not and cannot deliver, what matters is that millennials heard him talk about it and the Robin Hood ponzi scheme he and his co-conspirators created hasn’t come crashing down (yet). By the way, taxpayer funded college is the next card in that deck, and we can rest assured that Hillary or Bernie is going to play it.
And while your points about people running their own lives resonate with those of us who have grown up with liberty and feel like tearing our hair out when all three branches of government persist in stripping away those liberties, there is another aspect to the question. People who lived for years in the prison state of the People’s Republic of Korea provide a good case in point: When people who have had every aspect of their lives dictated by government encounter the myriad choices you and I make every day, it is often overwhelming. The suicide rate is very high for people who have escaped the PRK because many just can’t handle liberty. Having spent a good bit of time among millennials as an educator, I suggest that many would be perfectly content to have someone else run their lives, as long as they have an i-phone and somebody to pay the bills they do not want to or cannot pay.

This islamoterrorist stuff is so, like, yesterday.
What America really wants to know is, how many people have clicked on the photo of the green-bikini clad chick holding the microphone.

Aww, c’mon. I’m sure he planned to behead someone “peacefully.”
Your feelings are understandable, but I suggest that in addition to destroying those (like ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc.) who torture and murder the innocent, we should be doing everything we can to show that Islam is a false-god and false-prophet worshipping religion of trying to earn one’s salvation. I think we should also keep in mind that the Islamists kill more Muslims than they do Christians or Jews or anyone else.
One of the problems we face in combating false ideas is that those false ideas cannot be destroyed by bullets or bombs. Only truth can overcome falsehood. To that end, Christianity is alone among religions of the world in promoting true peace and salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
seems STRATFOR left out the part about international banking interests manipulating world leaders and events to orchestrate complete control of every aspect of economics (therefore politics) on the planet. With the connivance of useful idiots like Obama and (unfortunately) Ryan the pace is only going to accelerate.

Maybe. My position is that Obama is an intelligent fool.

I prefer a .338 300 gr. BTHP myself. Quite cost-effective as compared to airstrikes. And nothing strikes fear into the hearts of scumbags like a bullet through the heart of the scumbag standing next to them.
speaking of 762x51 that is what I use for deer hunting! nylon tipped of course. Got one from 80 yards away straight in the heart.
Somebody has to survive to carry the message to the useful idiots to never look up. We could use a few thousand patriots in America to lock and load and wait for the chief Idiot to make his final mistake.
Or watching the head of the scumbag next to him turn into pink mist.

Quite right. This doesn’t surprise me a bit. The UN is part of the problem, especially the Europeans. Back in the 90s I was working in central Africa and saw first hand how UN bureaucrats are using the circumstances to make themselves rich. They have no interest in fixing anything because if they did, they would work themselves out of a job. Some UN employees are living on expense accounts while making six figure tax-free salaries they put in the bank so they can retire to southern France or chalets in Switzerland. But it’s just black people who are suffering, so nobody seems to care much.

The Presbyterian Church USA went off the rails a long time ago.
