We're at war (again)

Pat Buchanan explains why we are, once again, enmeshed in an unnecessary and unjustifiable war in Libya. The excuse that we are helping the "rebels" achieve freedom under the guise of U.N. authority just doesn't wash. American interests are not threatened -- unless, of course, America's interest is to kill or depose anyone who does not give us what we want.
Gadhafi did not attack the West. He faced an uprising to dethrone him and rallied his troops to crush it, as any ruthless ruler would have done. We have no vital interest in who wins his civil war.         
Indeed, Gadhafi has asked of Obama, "If you found them taking over American cities by force of arms, what would you do?"         
Well, when the South fired on Fort Sumter, killing no one, Abraham Lincoln blockaded every Southern port, sent Gen. Sherman to burn Atlanta and pillage Georgia and South Carolina, and Gen. Sheridan to ravage the Shenandoah. He locked up editors and shut down legislatures and fought a four-year war of reconquest that killed 620,000 Americans -- a few more than have died in Gadhafi's four-week war.        
Good thing we didn't have an "international community" back then.         
The Royal Navy would have been bombarding Lincoln's America.
Do we really want the U.N. calling the shots, dictating who lives and who dies, or what governments may be allowed to exist? Who's next?

EDIT: Terrance P. Jeffrey and Alan Keyes articulate in greater detail why this usurper ought to be impeached for violating the Constitution he swore to uphold. (Indeed, has he not defied the Constitution by his very occupancy of the office, given his ambiguous, suspect and unproven nativity, in direct opposition to Article 2, Section 1?)

Circling the toilet bowl

A single judge (briefly) halts California's global warming initiative (and slide toward economic ruin). I don't know what bothers me most: That an ill-informed electorate would vote to support such an ill-conceived, fraudulent and feckless program in the first place, or that one judge is able to dictate the course of an entire state with a single ruling.

Are we still a free people, or what? I fear what.

One commenter observed:

Mired in intractable debt, overrun with massive numbers of low-skilled, poorly educated and public resource consuming illegal immigrants, as icing on the cake, California has decided to "lead the country" with an economic suicide pact to solve a non-existent problem to mollify an entrenched private lobby and public bureaucracy of Gaia-worshipping know-nothings.

That conclusion was too perspicacious to ignore. 

That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger

A Confederacy of Fools

As America now faces bankruptcy, national fascism, balkanization along racial, economic and political lines, and unending war, in 2008, the UK's The Spectator offered us this insight:
“You have to punch yourself – a Marxist radical who all his life has been mentored by, sat at the feet of, worshiped with, befriended, and endorsed the philosophy of, funded and been in the turn funded, politically promoted and supported by a nexus comprising black power and anti-white racists, Jew haters, revolutionary Marxists, unrepentant former terrorists and Chicago mobsters, is on the verge of becoming President of the United States. 
"And apparently, it’s considered impolite to say so.”
Not only did these liberal twits think it was impolite, anyone who disagreed was called a racist, bigot, and xenophobe.

And then last year, we were told again....

This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president." 
"The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. 
"The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. 
"It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”
EDIT: This video exposes just some of the red flags (no pun intended) about Obama.
