The Week in Review

The Week in Review

 

This week in review…

 

*  Whoever is in charge of Kuala Lampur airport security should be fired, seriously, have you seen this video?  It is security camera video of the two pilots of the Malaysian Air jet that has been missing for almost 2 weeks now.  Seriously, buy some real cameras or at least hire somebody to stand there with their smart phone and record.

 

* For those of you, who are not quite clear on what realpolitik is, meet Vladimir Putin…Putin He just schooled President Obama on realpolitik, again.

 

* Crimea has voted to rejoin Russia, after declaring their independence from Ukraine.  For those of you wringing your hands about Crimea, don’t sweat it, let us be realistic, it is not in our national interests whether territory that has been Russian for 400 odd years, and filled with Russians is ruled by Russia.  It is definitely not worth drawing another red line that we won’t do anything about, as that only makes us look weak, and will cause us to have issues in other places that are in our national interests.  Pick your battles, and the Crimea is not of value to us.

 

* ObamaCare (aka The Affordable Healthcare Act) has been ‘modified/delayed’ again, that would be in the deep 30s in terms of modifications and delays.  Now I am not sure, but that sure does seem to be unique amongst federal laws in such a short time but, what I find odd, is the entire clusterfuck was designed (allegedly) to lower healthcare costs, provide insurance coverage to the 30+ million uninsured Americans, and to lower the debt and deficit to boot (the very definition of “if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is”), shouldn’t we look to what made America the leader in healthcare?  The free market system.  If the government wants to affect the price of medical care, perhaps, Tort Reform, Insurance Reform, and helping students wanting to enter the medical field with their costs for education, would actually do some good.

 

* Earlier this week over a hundred illegal aliens were apprehended rescued from a stash house in Houston.  Why if roughly 10% of Mexico’s population is already here in America, and literally hundreds of Mexicans die every year attempting the dangerous crossing from Mexico to America, through some of the harshest climates in the world, led by criminals whose primary concern is cash, to be packed into cars, trucks, and houses like sardines, has not asked, one simple question…What the hell is going on in Mexico that all of these people are running from?

Has the time come for the USA to liberate Mexico.  People always talk about doing the humanitarian thing while wanting to offer amnesty to all of the illegal aliens, well let’s do one better, let us liberate the whole damn country, make them American, stamp out the epidemic corruption and violence that forces these poor people to flee for a better life.  Problem solved, and it is a lot closer to home.
