    Egypt is definitely on Obama’s s*** list, and I’m not so sure he much likes Saudi.

    Perhaps you can replace Saudi by Turkey, since he and Erdogan seem to be buddies.

    In my opinion, people are people the world over and all want and deserve to be happy and free.

    We desperately need to find ways to work together and avoid the efforts of those who seek to divide and conquer us.

      + 1

      Without Big Government there would be one big order ‘We The People’.

      • omanuel says:

        I agree. That is the birthright of everyone.

        That is also why I suspect Big Brother fans the flames of religious intolerance to stay in control.

        • Jason Calley says:

          Big Brother creates racial strife, religious wars, terrorist groups and more. The average person is decent and will be your friend and (if need be) your helper. The easiest way to convince an average person to do something bad is to lie them in to doing it. “You can’t trust THOSE people!” “They worship the devil!” “They’re all alike, they are thieves!”

          Frightened people demand Big Brother protect them, no matter what is costs in money or in freedom. Big Brother is the 5% of sociopaths in our midst.

        • omanuel says:

          Thanks, Jason. Is there a better way to bypass the manipulation than the Twin Verses of Buddha:

          “Hatred does not cease by hatred in this world,

          By love alone it ceases.

          This is an unalterable law” ?

        • Neal S says:

          You can love followers of Islam all you like while they chop your head off for refusing to submit and accept their faith. If all Jews and Christians overnight became pacifists unwilling to defend their lives and lives of others, then in short order Muslims would have them all beheaded for refusing to submit. Those ‘moderate’ Muslims who would object, would themselves be threatened with death if they did not go along and be quite.

          You can see this happening now in the Middle East. Not working out too well for those who refuse to submit.

          Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. … Those who fail to learn from the mistakes of their predecessors are destined to repeat them.

          I have learned from the past, your turn.

      • omanuel says:

        Each person must decide for themselves.

        “I will not so belittle myself as to hate anyone.”

        • Neal S says:

          I am not suggesting hating anyone. I am suggesting that we not be foolish and think that there might not be others who seek to kill us if we do not submit. I suggest we must be ready to defend ourselves if we wish to keep our heads and our lives. I suggest it is foolish to think there can ever be peace with Islam.

          Turning the other cheek does not mean letting others behead you if you do not submit.

    • Oliver, Robert & Jason:

      In my experience, decent people who spent their lives among decent people frequently have trouble understanding why evil triumphs and they tend to blame “the others” or the government for it. They cannot reconcile the goodness they know in individuals with the evil they see.

      I see it the other way around: We all carry in us the capacity for good and evil. Governments or “the others” do not cause human evil. The wickedness is always there just like our aspiration to be angels. We respond to “the others” and we create governments in our image.

      History has shown what mass carnage individual evil can do if given the tools of big government.

      History has also shown that eliminating government allows individual evil to take its place.

      A limited government based on the rule of law and the protection of natural rights doesn’t eradicate individual evil but it drastically limits the scope of damage it can do. It also gives the biggest opportunity for individual good to unfold.

      The problem is that people don’t naturally create limited governments. In the United States they initially succeeded because of historically unique circumstances but I’m afraid our human tendency to screw things up may prevail.

      • Gail Combs says:

        Straight up EVIL exists. I have met it more than once starting with my Brother. A very very scary dude.

      • omanuel says:

        Thanks! I agree.

        To roughy quote an anonymous text,

        “There is a bit of good in the worst of us, and a bit of bad in the best of us, but we are all children of God and we each have a right to be here.

        When I complain about you or about me, I am complaining about God’s handiwork. I am saying that I know better than God.”

      • Jason Calley says:

        Certainly we all have the capacity to do evil — but most people will choose NOT to do evil unless they are persuaded by circumstance that they have no other real choice. For example, if the laws against murder and theft were repealed today, would you go out to murder and steal tomorrow? I don’t think you would, and I don’t think that most people would. So why is it that we have these mass events where average people (not only the psychopathic criminals among us) go out and kill millions and destroy nations? It seems to me that the most effective way to convince normal people to use that capacity for evil is to lie them into it. In every culture there is a relatively small percentage (my guess is about 5%) of the population which is both willing and skillful at using those lies to control the 95% of normal people. Wilson convinces Americans that by joining in a war in Europe that they can fight “the war to end all war” and bring peace to the Earth forever. Lenin convinces the masses of Russia that by destroying the rulers and the bourgeois they can create a new society without oppression and starvation. Hitler convinces the German people that the only way to make themselves and their children safe is to seize control of Europe and to kill the Jews. President Johnson convinces the American people that North Vietnamese boats have attacked US Navy ships and that we have to defend ourselves from enemies in South east Asia. Pol Pot convinces the people of Cambodia that the intellectuals and foreigners are dangerous and must be killed. Islamic fanatics convince young men in the middle east that by blowing up themselves and innocent civilians they can help bring about a heaven on earth.

        It is madness! Average people are persuaded that some lie is true — and millions end up dead! Notice that I have not said anything against self defense. Self defense is good — but we need to be careful, because the lie of “this is for self defense!” is one of the most popular and effective lies that is used to sway the masses. We need to be certain our self defense truly IS self defense and not aggression. Which brings me to something which is actually a point of optimism.

        Yes, regular people, average people, again and again fall for these lies and end up in seemingly endless rounds of war and attack — but consider this; the lies that convince people to start wars are almost always for what appear to be good and ethical reasons. In other words, people are not motivated to go into war by reasons like “Let’s start a war so we can go rape a lot of women!” or “Let’s attack ’em so that we can kill children!” or even “let’s kill them so that we can steal their stuff!” Those are not things that will motivate the average person to support this carnage. No, the things that are used to gain support from regular people are reasons like “They have an evil ruler and we will free them!” or “the only way to keep your children from being killed (or enslaved) is to forcibly stop them!” If most people were really evil, or even prone to evil, they could be motivated to do evil for evil reasons, but they are not. The average person is decent, if only he is allowed to be decent, but if you persuade him that his only choice is between two evils — go to war or see your children killed — then he will go to war. And once you persuade one nation to attack the other, then the second really does have no choice but to go to war as well. Real pacifism, as you have pointed out, is not an option.

        The problem for humans is that we are too easily lied into believing that our only choice is between two evils, even when that is not the case.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Of interest is the fact that during WWI there was a major problem for BOTH SIDES to get the men to fire on each other!

          Now they use video games to over come this natural inclination to NOT kill humans.

    Off topic, but I linked your site from another one. I hope that is ok.

  4. He still has about 22 months left in which to wreak havoc, sow the seeds of atomic war and leave the world a far worse place than when he took office.

  5. Anto says:

    I knew he was a worry when he started bowing to people.

  6. Bloke down the pub says:

    It comes to something when O’Bama needs a photo op with Prince Charles in order to boost his popularity.

  7. Robert of Ottawa says:

    Empower your enemies and piss off your friends, and we here in Canada are rather PO’d.

  8. Robert of Ottawa says:

    Agreed about Egypt. Honestly, Sisi is the best potential ally the West, in fact all the civilized world, can have and the expletive supports the Muslim Brotherhood!!!

  9. Tel says:

    Australia is pretty friendly with China when it comes to encouraging immigration and taking their money. I not long ago we agreed to a major reserve bank currency swap, and recently we joined their electronic transaction network. Rumour has it China buys a lot of Australian government bonds but people don’t like to talk about that.

    As for Saudi Arabia, well there’s plenty of logical reasons for that situation.

  10. Shazaam says:

    Cuba got hurriedly stuffed onto the friends of the Liar-in-chief list in a frenzied effort to head-off China getting really friendly with Cuba.

    The new Nicaragua canal will result in China building an airfield and 2 ports. The Laughingstock-in-chief and his most transparent administration ever just figured out that may mean 2 Chinese naval bases and an air base in Nicaragua. And they are scared spit-less that Cuba will allow another Chinese military base there as well.

    When the shoe is on the other foot, the folks in DC don’t like it. They don’t like it at all.

    Those darn Zionists strike again! Oh… hang on…

    ADEN, Yemen (AP) — A group claiming to be a Yemeni branch of the Islamic State group says it carried out a string of suicide bombings in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, that killed a total of 137 people and injured 345 others.–yemen-3a65928e1d.html

    This must be a misprint, the Religion of Peace cannot possibly be to blame, again.

  12. gator69 says:

    On Monday, when a New Delhi court granted Pachauri protection from arrest until tomorrow, his lawyers told the court their client was ill. A Times of India news story quotes Sidharth Luthra:

    We have submitted all the medical records regarding his illness which include cardiac issues and UTI [urinary tract infection].

    “Most urinary tract infections are bacterial in nature. When fecal bacteria from the anus makes its way into the urethra, the bacteria can multiply and travel upward to the bladder and kidneys. There are several ways that fecal bacteria can get into the urinary tract:”

    Poor bathroom hygiene

    Sex acts involving the anus

    Swimming in unsanitary water

    He obviously has hygiene issues, and we all know how dirty the Ganges River is, but ever notice how happy he and Al Gore appear together?

  13. omanuel says:

    “I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.”

    Booker T. Washington

    That is the quote I attempted to repeat earlier.
