I bet I'm not the only one who feels overwhelmed each day by everything that is going on in the United States of America and the world today. We're being told by people I call idiots that we need to "cull" the population in order to save the world by thinning the ranks of humans that are a cruel blight upon it. That seems to fit right in with US President Barack Obama's government health bill where a panel of people, we have no idea who these people would be, will decide which people are worthy of health care and who isn't fit to live.
"Culling" the heard also fits with the pro-abortion folks. Limit the children you have, if you get pregnant no problem, just have the baby killed. End of problem, end of that carbon dioxide emitting little person who might help destroy the earth. Earth good. Baby bad.
We are told we should give up eating meat and having pets, all to save the earth. God almighty created the earth and the entire universe. How arrogant do these mere humans think they are anyway? The United Nations World Health Organization (another useless UN group that the US probably pays for) has concluded that sex, alcohol and fat are the world's biggest killers causing premature deaths. Didn't they get the message that dying humans is a good thing for the earth?
"The worst thing you or I can so for the planet is to have children" writes the Guardian's Alex Renton, who advocated in a Sunday column an ambiguous system of system of carrots and sticks to get the developed world to stop reproducing. [snip]Interesting that Renton used the word cull, which the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines thus: "to reduce or control the size of (as a herd) by removal (as by hunting) of especially weaker animals; also : to hunt or kill (animals) as a means of population control."

Michael Barone finds it odd that Barack Obama can go to Oslo and Copenhagen for mainly personal reasons, but somehow can’t find the time to travel to Berlin to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall — the climax of the Cold War and the West’s triumph, according to World Views who thinks the answer is:
Berlin won't be about Obama.It will honor previous generations of stalwarts against an evil empire that Academia defended for decades. Whether Obama joined them in that effort as a student is not material; after all, there is a time and a place for foolishness, and that’s college. It’s not (necessarily) that Obama doesn’t think that the fall of the wall is a good thing, but that has nothing to do with him, and is therefore irrelevant.
We seem to have a President who is a narcissist. Everything is all about him rather than the country he is supposed to lead. He wants government health care but is unwilling to put his own bill forward for fear it might not pass. So he depends on the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, who is now pushing a State opt-out option. Sure, States might be able to opt-out, but they would be punished for it.
Why would Harry Reid include a public option in his bill, knowing that Olympia Snowe was very much against it, and Joe Lieberman had vowed to filibuster it?
Either Reid is the worst vote counter in the world, or there’s something else at work…Does Harry Reid want to lose on Obamacare?
The Ditherer in Chief, continues to put off making a decision about sending more troops to Afghanistan. In fact, we understand that he is completely rethinking what the policy is in Afghanistan and possibly considering pulling troops out as his VP Joe Biden and Sen. John Kerry are suggesting. We know that Obama is never 100% sure about any decision he makes. Meanwhile, a U.S. official resigns over Afghan war: Foreign Service officer and former Marine captain Matthew Hoh says he no longer knows why his nation is fighting.
The Wide Awake Cafe comments, "Forget the three A.M. calls, Obama won’t even answer the call for help in broad daylight." Mona Charin asks "Do you ever get the feeling that we are getting Holiday Inn Express government?"
Does anything they say make basic economic sense? President Obama and the propose to save money (or what they call "bend the cost curve") on health care spending. They will spend less, they say, but also cover more people — the 47 million or 30 million uninsured (Obama has used both numbers). This will be accomplished without reducing care for anyone and without raising taxes on anyone except the rich. In fact, care will be improved.
Sounds great. But do these people know what they're doing? They mouth the words "choice" and "competition" but only, ironically, in praise of a "public option." The concept of encouraging choice and competition in the health insurance market — say by permitting interstate sales — is off the table.
In Iraq the military is busy rounding up the 36.4 billion in equipment that has collected since 2003 in preparation of the 2011 pullout. This past week has been the most dangerous in Afghanistan and Iraq in years. An al-Qaeda-linked group in Iraq has claimed credit for the recent bombings there. I'm wondering what will happen when our troops leave both Iraq and Afghanistan?
Barack Obama is no friend if Israel. Iran moves forward with their nuclear plans. Obama thinks he can negotiate with them and they will suddenly stop. This past week Iran arrested 12 people for promoting Satanism in a crack down on "indecent Western-inspired movements". What were they doing? Making human sacrifices? No, they were dancing, listening to music, drinking alcoholic beverages. (Granted the music was rap, so I understand their pain, ha.) You can't talk these people out of their nuclear program and you are naive if you think you can.
In spite of everything, it is a good time to be a conservative, with Sarah Palin leading the charge to elect conservatives to office. The RINOs presently in office need to read the 5 messages for elite Republicans.
So while we are overwhelmed each day with more idiocy from the Left and RINOs and Liberals in the Republican party, there is a glimmer of hope, be if ever so small. Keep strong. Keep the faith. There is hope for us yet.
