    We are past the point of playing pat-a-cake anymore. Congress must pass and POTUS sign into law legislation requiring that any citizen in any way making contact with or aligning with any Jihadist/Terrorist have his/her passport revoked and immediate proceedings instituted to revoke his/her citizenship. The only exception would be intel/specops types on assignment against these groups.

    Many Americans believe everything will change if we move from Congressional control by one party to the other. Consider well: A shepherd, watching his donkey feeding in a meadow, was alarmed all of a sudden by the cries of the enemy. He appealed to the donkey to fly with him, lest they should both be captured, but the animal lazily replied, “Why should I, pray? Do you think it likely the conqueror will place on me two loads?” “No,” rejoined the shepherd. “Then,” said the donkey, “as long as I carry the a load, what matters it to me whom I serve?” In a change of government the poor change nothing beyond the name of their master.

    A crow was jealous of the Raven, because he was considered a bird of good omen and always attracted the attention of men, who noted by his flight the good or evil course of future events. Seeing some travelers approaching, the Crow flew up into a tree, and, perching herself on one of the branches, cawed as loudly as she could. The travelers turned towards the sound and wondered what it foreboded, when one of them said to his companion, “Let us proceed on our journey, my friend, for it is only the caw of a crow, and her cry, you know, is no omen.” Those who assume a character which does not belong to them, only make themselves ridiculous.

    A DOG used to run up quietly to the heels of everyone he met, and to bite them without notice. His master suspended a bell about his neck so that the Dog might give notice of his presence wherever he went. Thinking it a mark of distinction, the Dog grew proud of his bell and went tinkling it all over the marketplace. One day an old hound said to him: “Why do you make such an exhibition of yourself? That bell that you carry is not, believe me, any order of merit, but on the contrary a mark of disgrace, a public notice to all men to avoid you as an ill-mannered dog.” Notoriety is often mistaken for fame.

    The Wolf and the Lamb A WOLF, meeting with a Lamb astray from the fold, resolved not to lay violent hands on him, but to find some plea to justify to the Lamb the Wolf’s right to eat him. He thus addressed him: “Sirrah, last year you grossly insulted me.” “Indeed,” bleated the Lamb in a mournful tone of voice, “I was not then born.” Then said the Wolf, “You feed in my pasture.” “No, good sir,” replied the Lamb, “I have not yet tasted grass.” Again said the Wolf, “You drink of my well.” “No,” exclaimed the Lamb, “I never yet drank water, for as yet my mother’s milk is both food and drink to me.” Upon which the Wolf seized him and ate him up, saying, “Well! I won’t remain supperless, even though you refute every one of my imputations.”  The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny.

    It is really sad when you think about it: imagine coming to the end of your productive career and having no legacy that includes anything good with your name on it. That history will remember you as a bumbling miscreant who consistently stood firmly on the wrong side of every issue. As a long-term student of people, society, government, etc. ad nauseum, I am convinced the man is every bit as certifiable as Kim.

    I pray for BHO’s safety all the time, and even sent word to the Service years ago to be extra watchful on his behalf. If anything were to happen to him, consider the Constitutional pecking order for his slot: not a winner in the bunch. He thinks he is controlling some very unsavory characters. Not so. Should the puppet get his heart and head straight and make moves to undo all the incredible damage he has done to the nation, those entities will seek to “neutralize” him. Who are they? Follow the money, honey.

    What is so surprising about a repressive regime that gained power unlawfully negotiating with another repressive regime that gained power unlawfully. Both have incredibly wealthy interests buddied up with the ruling elite to consolidate power. The most stark difference is that in one the general economy is in the tank, while the other is merely heading in that direction.

    This does not directly relate to the article, but read on and you may see a similarity. In my hometown we had a cop who delighted in pulling over young women (and teens), saying in effect “I won’t give you a ticket this time, if you will ….” Fill in the blank space. A group of us fathers went to the chief and told him, “if this happens ever again you won’t have trouble finding the officer, ’cause he won’t be going anywhere.” The cop was dismissed. He moved to another area town where he was speed gunning drivers on the interstate, then rushing into town and ticketing them on the I-44 speed … that is, until the state highway patrol caught up with him.

    Interesting: never served in the military, no credentials directly related to the position of SECDEF. Yet called fully qualified by a man who himself is unqualified to serve as a dog-catcher. What a fascinating world it is that is about to plunge off the cliff.

    Pies? The entire menu. How many public school kids on the “new” guidance would find themselves suddenly able to concentrate through the afternoon on some of that fare. Ultimate hypocrisy. I seem to recall another “first lady” saying of the poor and government-abused “let them eat cake.” Didn’t go well for those leaders (1776). But then nearly all dictators and would-be dictators come to rather unpleasant ends in time. The world will still be here long after the miscreants have been processed through the waste-water treatment plant of history. The evil we do eventually will find us out. As a student of history, cultures and trends I am saddened for our nation. Pray for America.

    So, you want to patronize only businesses that you are in the process of vandalizing and burning down. A statement of shear genius. The racist liberal mind is nearly incomprehensible.

    Ironic isn’t it? Not in all cases, but in far too many the very person who would chain himself to a tree or jump into a river to save a puppy would think nothing of murdering the highest of God’s creations – our children. Demonic.

    For those who panic at the thought of “Christ-mas” I would put forward that the word holiday is a derivative of “holy-day.” Everyone has a religion by definition. Even atheism, agnosticism and evolutionism again by very definition is a religion.

    With an irony straight out of George Orwell’s “1984″ those who are most guilty of a character flaw normally scream the epithet first and loudest. The philosophy is that he who controls the definition of words used controls the conversation. Pathetic way to stifle free exchange of views.

    You are sooooo right. Well written, excellent cast … all the components were thoughtfully chosen and utilized.

    To all those who suffer knee-jerk reactions to anything having to do with faith or patriotism … Get A Life! You always have the option to opt out your kids and deprive them of something that may be of life-long benefit.
