Ray-rah, go Seal Team-6! Another daring feat by our American Navy Seals. Two aid workers, one American and a Dane kidnapped in October by Somali terror group Al-Shabab were rescued by the Seals this week.
Who is Al-Shabab? An Islamic terror group who’s stated aim according to The Daily Beast, is to overthrow the government of Somalia and impose its strict version of Islam. It has also declared war on the UN and Western non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as evidenced by these recent kidnappings. And they have been the most successful group at recruiting the youth of America and Canada.
Meanwhile the TSA and our ‘bass-akward’ Department of Homeland Security insists on random screening at the airports, harassing those frightful U.S. Senators, young children or the elderly in wheelchairs in the kabuki dance of protection and security.
It’s crazy. They should be profiling -there I said it, and I’m not original in this thinking. This is not rocket science.
Homeland Security need not apply

I like what Donald Trump says, but who could ever take him seriously as a presidential candidate with that hair-do? His handlers surely must have advised him to lose it, wouldn’t you think?
But hey, maybe the Donald doesn’t have handlers. That would be a plus on the ‘he’s genuine’ scale but still, I like what he says. He’s right on in regard to China:
- They are making a laughing stock of America
- They take our money (in trade), suck it out of us -then lend it back to us!
- Their products are 100% inferior (remember the pet food, toothpaste, lead-tainted toys and jewelery, and bad drywall?)
- They lie and cheat at the Olympic games
- Their human rights and environmental record is a travesty, and
- Trump would slap a 25% tax on all Chinese imports immediately to bring them to honest negotiations on the currency manipulation
Imagine the irony of Obama, last years Nobel Prize winner (yeah, go figure) rolling out the red carpet for Chinese President Hu, whos own Nobel Peace Prize winner is detained in prison!
And Trump is right, Ron Paul will never win the GOP nomination, despite winning the straw poll at CPAC for the 2nd year in a row. Paul’s winning appeal is that he talks honestly about the real issues most Americans care about (sounds like Palin -even though she’s not electable either). But Paul doesn’t believe he’ll get the nomination either.
His job and he’s great at it, is to raise the tough issues other candidates will only skirt around.
He’ll be great in the debates because he’ll force other candidates to go on record regarding these ‘land mine’ issues. BTW, Romney doesn’t have a chance either unless he convincingly denounces Romneycare (Obamacare light), which so far he hasn’t done.
