Over the weekend, tens of thousands of Iranians burned American and Israeli flags in Tehran and chanted "Death to America, Death to Israel!" On Monday, July 12th, the U.S. signed a "deal" that purportedly tries to prevent Iran from building a Nuclear weapon. The U.S. can not prevent crime in its own cities. The U.S. can not prevent tens of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing our border every month. The U.S. can not enforce its own immigration laws. The U.S. can get 92 million Americans back to work. How on Earth will the U.S. enforce anything with Iran? I do not get it. Since half the people who read this blog don't agree with me, please contact me so you can tell me if I am wrong. Please. I know in my heart you won't do it. Why, because deep down inside, you know I am right. First of all, negotiating with terrorists will not get you any "deal" worth signing. Second, why would you negotiate with anyone who threatens your life? Third, believing that your "rules" apply to them is just stupid. They have not, they will not, and they never intend to comply with anything you propose. Just today, another Muslim Islamic Terrorist, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, a Kuwaiti, executed four Marines in Tennessee. President Obama is already calling it "work place" violence. I don't know about you, but I am not that stupid. Good luck with that. That's how I see it, today, July 16th, 2015.
Of course, it is political, why would the United States do something in its best interest or in the "people's" interest? Under the guise of doing the right thing the Obama administration is only trying to secure some nonsensical legacy, a legacy which is already lying in ruins. Pity. The only saving grace might be the Congressional rejection of the "Nuke Deal" in sixty days. However, the Democrats are very good at timing, and what better way to destroy the Republican morality than by blaming them for the so-called "nuclear deal." Just like ObamaCare, no one really trusts the Obama administration to do anything that is credible. The "cornerstones" for the next big war, and I mean big, are now being set. The foundation of "peace" is just not there. Just this week, Saudi Arabia announced that is was investing ten billion dollars in Russia because they no longer "trust" the U.S. Can you really blame them? Nuclear deal or not, the real proof of the pudding will be whether or not Congress approves it. Time will tell. If the Republicans get the presidency on the next round maybe some of this damage can be undone. It is very doubtful though. The Republican Party has shown it's total ineptitude to grasp reality and run a thorough and strong campaign. While the Iranians did not blow up downtown Manhattan they did blow up the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, killed hundreds of American soldiers with their IEDs, fostered terrorism in Lebanon, Gaza, the West Bank, Yemen, Argentina, and harbored Al-Qaeda terrorists inside their borders... but by all means..."Let's make a deal!" That's the way I see it, today, July 11th, 2015.
Yikes! I don't know where to start! Should I begin with the Iran Nuclear Talks, the collapse of the Chinese Stock Market, the bankruptcy of Greece, the crash of the Euro, the NYSE cyber attack today, the rise of ISIS, Confederate flags, "hands up, don't shoot," the British 7.7 terror anniversary, Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner's wee-wee tuck, Subway's pedophile, the layoff of 40,000 U.S. troops and 20,000 civilian employees, the stupidity of the "two-party" system, the rise of U.S. corporate oligarchs, the 100 million unemployed Americans, the broken immigration system, or the 87 wounded and 15 dead in Chicago over the Fourth of July? Hmm, very hard choices! How about this, I had a birthday yesterday and am now, wait for it...60! Yikes! Are you kidding me! I survived numerous bike accidents, cancer, broken bones, layoffs, personal bankruptcy, losing a house, stock market crashes, two trips to the Middle East, hearing damage, crazy partners, 30 years of flying, and the Bush and Obama Presidencies! Here is the good news...I am still here! Yesterday, one of my nieces had a baby, a little boy named Kyler on MY birthday! Good job! Now I have to go get a cigar and smoke it! Just remember, when all this crazy stuff is going on all around you, good stuff still happens! That's the way I see it, today, at Scroggin Bloggin, July 8th, 2015!
