America's Head In The Sand?

While wondering how people could really be alarmed that the Swiss government may extradite Roman Polanski (who BTW pled guilty to raping the 13 year old girl), I came upon an interesting tidbit along the way. Here's an msnbc article (New York Times) that comes right out and confirms that the U.S. is about the only nation on earth that wants to think that Iran is being a good boy when it comes to nuclear bomb development. Sarkozy came right out and said it earlier.

Meanwhile, in closed-door discussions, American spy agencies have stood firm in
their conclusion that while Iran may ultimately want a bomb, the country halted
work on weapons design in 2003 and probably has not restarted that effort — a
judgment first made public in a 2007 National Intelligence Estimate.

What is the matter with the U.S.? France sees it. Germany sees it. Israel sees it. Iran is in the development business when it comes to atomic weapons. Obama is rapidly approaching a Jimma Carter level of ineptitude. Carter effed up by ousting the Shah and putting in the Islamic extremists. Let's hope somebody in this wild eyed lefty administration will try to see what is right in front of them. If not, at least listen to their heros in France. Like a buddy of mine who considers himself a progressive told me, "look up Areva. The French know." I researched it and I think he's right.

Just a thought.

Economic Woes?

Not if the rate of spending by the Democrats is any indication. A few million here. A few million there. Here is another example. Amazing isn't it. They campaign against all these things and here we go again.

Then there is this on top of it. A federal grant to pay for a private funeral? What's wrong with this picture?

Just a thought.

Obama Corrects Jimma Carter

President Obama corrected former President Jimma Carter who said criticism of the current President is mostly because he's a black man.

President Barack Obama said Friday that angry criticisms about his health
care agenda are driven by an intense debate over the proper role of government —
and not by racism.

Carter was the worst President this country has ever seen. He single handedly wrecked our economy. He single handedly demolished the government of one of our better allies and allowed Islamic extremists to rule. He tried time and again to set up Israel for eradication. Now, at his advanced age one might think Carter would have learned a little given his years of experience. But, no. Jimma is still a babbling idiot who has yet to do a meaningful thing to benefit this country. He should listen closely to Dr. Lou's advice given to Lane Kiffin, new University of Tennessee football coach, and try to remember it - when you can't improve upon silence, don't talk.

Just a thought.

Oliver Stone Displays Idiocy

Of course he is one of the leading Hollywood socialists. I have never really understood their logic unless they just want to solidify their standing in the society. Most of them legally reside in states other than California so they don't have to pay California taxes. Amazing.

This Reuters article tells of his fondness for Hugo Chavez.

Director Oliver Stone says the U.S. media and government have demonised
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and other leftist South American leaders, and
argues in a new film that they were right to stand up to Washington.

Why do these guys remain in the U.S.? I can't imagine Hugo or Fidel not welcoming them with open arms if they wanted to move to Venezuela or Cuba. It just baffles me. They have all the financial wherewithal to join Hugo or Fidel in their countries, yet the Hollywood leftists remain here trying to get us to adopt policies that have failed all over the world. The same policies that France, Germany, Italy and most of Europe are running from as quickly as possible. Go figure.

Just an observation.
