      >>Double its [CBO's] projection (and I suspect that's optimistic). I think there's a little bit of a recovery and a lot of overblown figures describing it. I think as we come up to November if it looks like Obama might get reelect the market will come apart and the the whole economy start to crumble. <<

      Does the economy usually follow the market or the market follow the economy? I had gotten the idea that if voters think they are seeing the economy recovering, they'll want to vote for Obama in order to keep the economy on its recovery path.

      >>Over the years I've seen many stories claiming OBL was dead. I think the Seals got him like advertised, though I question the burial at sea.<<

      That burial at sea is what's known as Obama's transparency.

    • >>Do you believe the 'recovery' is real or manipulated figures, i.e. lies? Did you see what the CBO projects Obamacare is going to cost?<<

      Over the years I've seen many stories claiming OBL was dead. I think the Seals got him like advertised, though I question the burial at sea.

      >>Which side has the most money, the most power, and the blackest record? (Rhetorical question.)<<

      Indeed.

      >>I mean far worse than just inflation, maybe we will sink back into a recession as bad as the one we are currently slowly recovering from or even into a depression. China et al will stop loaning us money when either they are certain they won't get it back or they decide withholding the money will destroy us. One of those two will inevitably happen if we don't change course.<<

      Do you believe the 'recovery' is real or manipulated figures, i.e. lies? Did you see what the CBO projects Obamacare is going to cost?

      >>Well he can't blame that on Bush. Afghanistan was his choice.<<

      I suspect his sole reason was to capture OBL so he could show Bush up. But he's made suicidal decisions, making our troops his personal sacrificial lambs. Someone said OBL was really killed in 2007. Did you read that anywhere?

      >>It's a war, words on this side, sabotage on that side.<<

      Which side has the most money, the most power, and the blackest record? (Rhetorical question.)

      >>During the eight years the Bush administration oversaw the war in Afghanistan, *630 of this nation’s best gave their lives.*

      In the just over three years of the Obama administration overseeing military operations in Afghanistan, *that number is nearly 1300 deaths.*><<

      Well he can't blame that on Bush. Afghanistan was his choice.

      >> . . . This sucks. It’s also scary [attacks on the UM blog].><<

      It's a war, words on this side, sabotage on that side.

      >>I'm sure they felt insulted and perhaps vindicated when at that very moment an Afghani in a pickup truck was driving madly toward Panetta's aircraft and its unarmed contingent (pickup ended up on fire in a ditch).<<

      That was a suicide mission, wasn't it? Or semi-suicide. The driver tried to escape the truck but died later in the hospital. I hope his comrades noticed his example.

      If I'd been one of those disarmed Marines, I would've been VERY angry. Those guys are deep in the midst of highest risk; they should NOT trust their Afghan sidekicks because any one of them could be a plant . . . they simply should not have been disarmed! That outrageous order made every one of those Marines an ultravulnerable target.

      >>And they will if we continue on down this spending path. We're probably condemned to major inflation in any event but it could be far worse.<<

      Far worse than it is now or far worse than WSI projects?

      I just looked for additional comments on UM's article about the attacks on the site, and found he has a new article now about Panetta disarming the Marines. UM cites some bad stats (asterisks indicate bold formatting):

      <Are you aware the number of American military casualties the first year of the Afghanistan conflict during the Bush administration?  *That number is 12.*

      Are you also aware of the number of American military casualties in Afghanistan after Barack Obama became president?  *That number is 317.*

      During the eight years the Bush administration oversaw the war in Afghanistan, *630 of this nation’s best gave their lives.*

      In the just over three years of the Obama administration overseeing military operations in Afghanistan, *that number is nearly 1300 deaths.*>

      >>RE. the spam attacks. I am not surprised a bit. The left is nothing if not organized.<<

      Do you remember that during the 2008 campaign they completely took down blogs? Seeing what's happened to Breitbart and some others before him, I believe UM is at similar risk.

      In today's comments on his report about the spam attacks, ThroughTheLookingGlass (March 16, 2012 at 7:05 pm) said:

      <“They” are working overtime on this site. Not only are pop-up ads showing up with almost every keystroke or hit of the enter key, the site ‘moves’ while writing or reading. Even this thread was not available in the menu:news. I had to acces through recent comments. Haven’t seen this kind of shadowing since commenting on Mediaite…which I refuse to do now. This sucks. It’s also scary.>

    • >>I wonder how those elements of the military who have been investigating and are rattled by it felt when Marines in Panetta's audience in Afghanistan were commanded to strip off their weapons so that . . . purportedly . . . they could look like the Afghans in the room . . . and the Marines had no idea who among the Afghans might be infiltrators ready to blow.<<

      I'm sure they felt insulted and perhaps vindicated when at that very moment an Afghani in a pickup truck was driving madly toward Panetta's aircraft and its unarmed contingent (pickup ended up on fire in a ditch).

      >>FTUMA<Once a country like China then pulls back…as they likely will…the entire system dissipates. . . .> <<

      And they will if we continue on down this spending path. We're probably condemned to major inflation in any event but it could be far worse.

      I tried to post my reply, but maybe crocheted shawls are as anathema as dreidel spinners? So follow this breadcrumb trail to the next hamlet:

      I'm OK with that.

      >>You bet. I looked at those 45 goals and we still have an FBI so they haven't completely succeeded yet. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.<<

      I fervently hope you're right. But remember what a Secret Service agent told the guy who emailed to Orly details of his experience?

      <. . . He said nobody, including the FBI will not do a thing.  He went on to say that they agreed something needed to be done but nobody but Eric Holder had the power to do anything (what do they know, they were young).  They both said two or three times “the only solution is to vote him out of office.” . . . .>

    • >> . . . In your mind you still dwell in the America of our formation in childhood and earlier-adulthood. You know . . . before the Communists began implementing their takeover of America via their 45 declared goals . . .<<

      You bet. I looked at those 45 goals and we still have an FBI so they haven't completely succeeded yet. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

      >>Can you conclude anything other than the military that WSI and others believe is being manipulated toward unionization is the UNconstitutional military that has been commandeered by the UNconstitutional Commandeerer-in-Chief?<<

      The military is still the chief repository of American patriotism. They won't go easily into the Peace Corps or become the National Police.
