First, Secretary of Defense nominee Charles Hagel's confirmation is not going well. And with just cause as I explained in my recent post Chuck Chuck: No Defensive Senator for Defense Secretary and with his past remarks regarding Israel, he certainly needs to be withdrawn of the nomination.
Chris Dorner certainly had his fifteen minutes of fame. Now, is he dead or alive in Mexico somewhere? Nobody's talking. A recent post that I came across on Facebook indicates that it is a fish smelling story about how his identification managed to survive the inferno that leveled the mountain cabin he allegedly was holed up in. Seems like a Hollywood screenwriter was paid handsomely for that yarn. Just another media spin at the behest of the government to make the glazed-eyed masses believe the Second Article of Amendment to the Constitution for the united States of America somehow needs to be exclusive of certain types of arms.
Obama's State of the Union was more a campaign thump than an indication that he is serious about getting this nation back on the right track. Global warming is not our most pressing crisis. And being upstaged by Dr. Benjamin Carson did nothing to bruise the ego of the man occupying the Oval Office. Obama seems totally detached from what needs to be done and yet his personal agenda remains against every principle of a representative republic, and a strong reflection of his blatant narcissism.
John Kerry as Secretary of State is a step to the side if not a slide backwards from Hillary Clinton. With the Benghazi attacks still unaccounted for by the State Department and the President's seeming lack of interest when the murders were taking place, does nothing to instill any sense of confidence or safety in most Americans abroad.
Oh, and fuel prices are as high as there were last summer and it's not even March!
