US to deploy small number of special forces to Syria in advisory role

US to deploy small number of special forces
to Syria in advisory role

My Comment:

Now we get to hear news stories of American soldiers coming home in body bags, again. Special forces people are really good but they are not immune to a bullet. Chances are good one of the so called good guys will murder them.

Weapons will fall into the hands of the bad guys because nobody can figure out the mess in Syria. They have spent a few billion dollars on that lost cause with no effect. It doesn't matter who is in office. The same mistakes are made regardless of party affiliation. Look at the mass murder committed by Bush.

They should spend our billions on the most comprehensive embargo in the history of mankind. Destroy all their aircraft. Destroy any vehicle going in or out of Syria. Don't even let food go into the country. If Russia doesn't like it, too bad. When they run out of bullets and food, they will stop.

What we don't need is a mother and father looking at a picture of their dead son hanging on the wall and wondering why he had to die. There are already enough pictures like that hanging on walls all over the country because of useless wars like Viet Nam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The Syrians are not worth anymore American lives.

Is America on the wrong track?

Paul Ryan is just another Republican liar
By Gary Donovan Snay

From a story located at:

My Comment:

These Republicans keep talking as though the country's about to fall apart. This country has done quite well under Obama. We are at or near full recovery. That’s an amazing statement after
what the Republicans did to us in the last administration. I was reading somewhere that if we continue on our current path we will have a balanced budget in two years.
Don’t think for a moment Republicans lent a hand in the recovery either. Starting from day one Republicans announced they would oppose anything President Obama attempted. Republicans have been obstructionists from the very beginning and get no credit for a job well done by Obama.
When Ryan says we are on the wrong path I can't help but wonder what he is talking about. Using the last administration as an example, are we supposed to go back to the days of Bush Jr.? There is a lot of evidence indicating if people bad mouth the economy enough, it will become a self-fulfilling reality.
What do Republicans want anyway? Is the Republican strategy of bad mouthing American economic success, designed to destroy our economy for political reasons? Is that their real intent? Telling everyone how bad things are when our nation has outperformed every other nation in the world borders on the bazar. Centering an entire campaign strategy on how many lies they can tell is very typical of the Republican Party as well.
After their performance in the last administration, I don't believe Republicans know anything about our economy.  Republicans have been wrong on the economy and wrong about war. A political party demonstrating such wrongheaded decisions should never be listened to again. It should be a no brainer. However, Republican hatred for Democrats far outweighs any common sense.

Republicans just need to shut up! They were wrong back then and they are wrong now.

Religion Can Potentially Destroy America

      The Threat Within
By Gary Donovan Snay

     Do not take lightly the rise of the evangelical movement in this country. It is traditional for Americans to leave religion alone but there comes a time when we all need to take notice. Whenever you see a tongue speaking Uncle Tom rise to the top of Republican polls, it is time to stop blaming Ben Carson.

     After all, he is so dumb he doesn't realize he's black and all his friends are racist. Ben Carson is not the danger. He’s just an Oreo that has discovered how to exploit his race and religion for political advantage.

     It is evangelical Christians who hate our nation, our government and anyone not like them. Of all the threats in this world to America, it is the threat from within which presents the greatest danger. Don't underestimate the power of religion to alter a government.

Hillary Clinton’s opposition to TPP is a sign of just how worried she is about Bernie Sanders

Hillary Clinton’s opposition to TPP is a sign of just how worried she is about Bernie Sanders

My comment:

I seriously doubt the current version of the TPP is the same version Hillary worked on when she was Secretary of State. A lot of changes have occurred since she was in a position to influence the agreement. Aside from that, she was under the authority of Obama and was obligated to support the Administration she worked for.

It wouldn't be hard to believe she may have evolved from support to opposition. In my opinion, she demonstrates wisdom. I am so tired of politicians taking a position on something, then after finding the error of their ways, keep sticking to the bad decision, no matter what (i.e., Iraq).

There have been many times in my life I made decisions only to gain new knowledge and discover I was wrong. Upon the revelation of my error, I changed my mind. Most people are mature enough to do just that. You know, change your mind if there is a better way.

Sitting around and chastising Hillary for an act of maturity can only be practiced by people lacking the wisdom to change one's mind in the face of facts. Either that or all the name calling is based on their hate for the woman. I want people like Hillary in charge. Not childish brats whose only solution is to call names and have tantrums.
