How Dystopian Futures Get To Be Dystopian

(Image from an article in:  The Free Republic)
Last week there appeared to be a nation-wide pandemic of child neglect.  Parents have been arrested for the following "heinous crimes" against children:  Having them walk home from school, leaving them to play in a park (armed with a cellphone, no less) and leaving pre-teens alone in a car.

Mark Steyn muses on the effect the nationalization of childhood has on the future.

Most of the comments in articles on such stories open with some variation of:  When I was a kid, I did...

Just how dangerous was life back then?

The Benefits of Being an Illegal Alien

Derek Hunter asks:  Has citizenship jumped the shark?

It certainly seems so. 

I'm certainly irked, to say the least, that illegal aliens can get benefits that citizens cannot, like in-state tuition rates.

Calling Out Our Fundraiser-in-Chief

(Image from:  The Five
Last week, I caught an episode of The Five, where the initial debate was on Obama's lackluster response to the Malaysian Airline shoot-down.  Miss Guilfoyle's comment was in response to Bob Beckel's defense of Our Fundraiser-in-Chief.

It does make one wonder--just what would it take for Obama to cancel a fundraiser?

Some humor to start off the week.

The Cost of Leading from Behind

(Image by Bob Gorrell)

By the end of last week, three crises coalesced to add more fuel to the fire of our burning world:

1. The "Children's Crusade" against our border continued unabated.

2. The downing of Malaysian Flight MH17. And,

3. Israel launched a ground offensive into Gaza.

What do these issues have in common?

Mark Davis points out they all have roots in a weakened America.

Especially when the going gets tough our Our Fundraiser-in-Chief goes on yet another fundraiser.

During these years of the Obama Presidency, there's been a debate as to whether Our Dear Leader is an evil genius, Hell-bent on destroying America; or merely incompetent.

Andrew Klavan declares Obama to be a hapless putz.

I'm would like to agree with his assessment.  Anyone who thinks they can ride the Forces of Chaos they unleash can't be all that smart. 

However, I don't share Klavan's optimism that the damage Our Nobel Peace Laureate-in-Chief has done will be so easily undone.

Malaysian Airliner Downed by SAM

(Image by Steve Breen)
A couple days ago, while I was hosting visiting family, Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine.

It was quickly determined that the plane was downed by a Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM).

The questions, at the time of this posting, are:  What weapons could have brought down MH17 and why, still have yet to be answered.

The finger-pointing consensus is the missile was fired by Ukrainian separatists.  Separatists backed by Russia.

WA Emergency Management at Full Activation

When I arrived at work last night I recognized several POVs (Privately Owned Vehicles) that are usually gone by 1700 hours (5 PM).

I knew right away we'd be at Phase-III (full activation).

The number of homes destroyed is now at 100.

I pray this number won't get any higher.

As of now scores of homes have been destroyed by several fires burning in the central, and/or eastern part of the state.

Leftist and Jihadi Detente

The unholy alliance between liberals and jihadis continue. 

Mark Steyn explains how this rare point of agreement exists between such two disparate groups.

Meanwhile, the US has very little to offer...

Bad Anti-Gun Article Backfires

(Image by Branco)

Last year, Rolling Stone magazine ran an article glamorizing the Boston Marathon Bomber.

Fast forward to two days ago, and Mike Walsh alerted us to the the most stupidest article about guns you will ever read.

Normally, I don't waste my time reading leftist claptrap in it's entirety.  But this all guns are bad article turned out to be too funny to pass up.  Not so much for the article itself, but those commenting heaped scorn upon the piece.

I've read two half-hearted attempts at defending the article, but otherwise, it's near 100% cyber rout of the anti-gun herd.

But backfires aren't limited to the gun grabbers either.  Apparently, the Gun Violence/Voting Pattern Map of 2012 is a hoax.

Like Christine Rousselle said, there's no reason to discredit the pro-Second Amendment cause with fakery.

Everyone Lives in a Border State Now

(Image by Branco)

Well Our Community Organizer in Chief has finally managed to organize something:  Growing opposition to illegal immigration.

The border crisis has pushed immigration to the top of the list of voter concerns.

Voters should be concerned.  Because sooner or later, they'll wake up and discover the "border" has expanded to their neighborhood.  With Our Dear Leader's minions dispersing illegal aliens all over the map, we're all border states now.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, folks are wondering whether or not portions of Joint Base Lewis-McChord will be converted to an illegal alien camp

Many are starting to think Obama's (mis)handling of the situation isn't due to incompetence, it's a deliberate act, resulting in the DNC eating it's old constituents.
