But I Killed Bin Laden!

Despite my inability to write regularly lately, I have continued to read along as best I can and to interject comments wherever I found the inclination. One of the things that I read repeatedly over the last few weeks was the notion that the 2012 election is already over. It isn’t a statement that exists in a vacuum here at SUFA. It can be found across the lame-stream media as well. The idea that because Bin Laden was executed on his watch, Barack Obama is unbeatable in 2012. This notion is not well founded, and is in fact ridiculous. The reality is that the only one who can get elected based on killing Bin Laden are members of SEAL Team 6 that went in to that compound and double-tapped that assclown in the cranium. Tonight I offer a short article on why I think that Bin Laden will hardly play into the decisions made by the people in November of 2012.
Obama Has Already Won in 2012? Oy Vey indeed

Reality Check

Hello SUFA! I have found it hard to write articles here that we haven’t already discussed to infinity already. Your a tough crowd to please, and even tougher to convince when it comes to the real tough issues. But that’s what I do, the tough issues. I bring out what is known, documented and factual for all to see. Whether you choose to believe is your mistake, not mine. While I’m generally a fun loving guy, I know when to be serious and hit on the realities that I see, and bring them to you the best I can. I don’t believe everything I hear or read, but I do believe in what people are saying based on the information they are given. Recently, D13 wrote a great article on the Osama bin Laden mission. I believe every word from the good Colonel, his integrity is solid gold in my book. The government, not so much. But when we look back to the past……

Foreign Policy Needs a New Policy

Blame America TourI am going to do my best to answer several of the positions taken on this site by various folks when it comes to our foreign policy. The fact is that our foreign policy in America is drastically flawed. Unfortunately so are some of the positions that have been espoused on the site when discussing foreign policy. The flaws are many, from taking a interventionist position within the world stage, to using that interventionist policy as a way to excuse away the heinous actions of others, many fail to see the reality of the world as it exists. I feel like I don’t suffer from that lapse in reality. I am not unique, but I am not just another dumb kid when it comes to examining the situation either. What I am is someone who has served this country, both here and abroad. I have seen the world first hand. I have seen the conflicts first hand. I have worked in Washington and seen the intel first hand. And what I offer on this subject is a voice not influenced by a hatred for either side and not rendered blind by a bias that keeps me from seeing the realities we face abroad. But that doesn’t make me right. So everything I say is certainly up for debate.

What Happened to Reason and Values in This Country? Part 1

stand-up-for-americaI have been sitting around thinking about this subject all day. I knew last night that I was going to write this article. I kind of know what I want to say. And I will hope that it comes out the way that I want it to come out. Let me say up front what I want to accomplish with this piece. I want to set a few things straight for some of the folks that frequent the site. I have had this feeling over the last couple of weeks as I read the comments and discussions that I could not put my finger on. Something just didn’t feel right to me, no matter how detailed some of the responses were or how intelligent the people making them were. So for a couple of weeks I have tried to put my finger on what feels “wrong”. After some introspection, I think I have it figured out. And it isn’t just about the people on this site. It is about people everywhere in this country. It isn’t the left or the right (although lately it has been the left in charge and the left most guilty of forgetting what I am going to talk about). The fact is that the American public needs to wake up and get a grip on the absolute group of morally bankrupt idiots in Washington.
When Did We Trade Values for Ease?

Heir to the Throne… America’s Royalty?

We have been hearing a lot lately about Hillary Clinton’s soon to be vacated New York Senate seat. We have also seen a lot of discussion around the Roland Burris appointment in Illinois. I am going to focus on New York here, but my conclusion will apply to both situations. It looks more each day like Caroline Kennedy will be appointed to the Senate. To me this is a bit agonizing. Can’t the Kennedy’s just go away?

Cabinet Positions are Too Tough to Keep up With!

I had a request tonight for a running update on the selections for the President Elect’s Cabinet. Initially this looked like a good post topic, as I have had a lot of people calling me to ask about the people selected. While others have no idea who I am talking about when I mention one. However after some contemplation, I have decided to not do separate posts for these picks. They would simply be too long and update too often. I have instead decided to have a page up there at the top of the blog where the picks will be updated as they are announced along with my thoughts and analysis on each one. The page will be titled “Obama’s Cabinet Picks”. We can have discussions there around the picks and it will keep that page right up here near the top where it needs to be. So Check it out as it gets updated over the next couple of days and learn who these folks are that are being chosen to be in Obama’s new Cabinet.

Keep Your Friends Close, Keep Your Enemies Closer….

Our new President Elect gave, in my opinion, one of the best acceptance speeches I can remember on the night of November 4. Calls for hope and hard work, a special channeling of Martin Luther King, a good Sheople (people behaving like sheep) moment with the “Yes We Can” recitations. But I remember most being “inspired” by his call to eliminate partisan politics during these desperate times. I remember saying to my wife that if he can do what his speech says, perhaps he will be a good President. The next day came the selection of Rahm Emmanuel as his Chief of Staff. Now we are hearing that he is considering as his Secretary of State….. are you ready? Hillary Clinton.
