    ISIS - The Way Forward

    Thx wally. We are wasting a lot of innocent lives to please the whims of the wealthy. Those who are supporting and funding the Islamic State militant terrorist groups are MORE guilty than the fighters that are setting the bombs and pulling the triggers….. Just my humble opinion. The sooner they find out that they can no longer hide from the evil that they are doing the quicker peace will reign…..

    co1trane, apparently you did understand, comprehend the salient points or read my post completly through. Try it reading it again and let me know your opinion/feelings.

  • dowjones1234 by dowjones1234 Aug 25, 2014 9:54 AM Flag

    We all keep hearing, seeing and reading about how vicious and brutal that the Islamic State militant terrorist groups are.
    Instead of fighting these individual terrorist groups in endless battles and wars, the US and all of it’s Allies should find out who the major funders and supporters of these groups are.
    Once that information is known and verified, the US and all of it’s Allies should use every means possible to destroy each one of these individuals physically as well as economically.
    Unfortunately, I think the US and all of it’s Allies already know who these individuals are but, instead of eliminating them on an individual basis, we continue to perpetuate the never ending ground wars through the sale of guns and ammunition.
    Multiple, periodic and large arial strikes that would eliminate at least 90% of these individuals, where ever they may be located, would set back the advance of those groups, warn other rich people to think twice about supporting brutal Islamic State militant terrorist groups and save tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of lives of innocent people around the world. Let’s get started!

    9 Big Mistakes!

    thx for your response and opinion. I would very much appreciate your point by point refutation of my stated points, thx in advance for your wisdom and facts.

    Now regarding the funding and support of ISIS. The Iranian government may not be directly funding ISIS but rest assured the ruling class in Iran are seeing to it that funding and support to ISIS as well as several other terrorist groups is and has been ongoing for quite sometime and are responsible for much of the present and continued Middle East turmoil.

    Presently and more so as time goes on, it is a proven fact that Obama and his liberal, progressive and democratic supporters were elected to office on lies, mistruths, omissions and mistakes. Twice!

    When I think of what Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Eric Holder, Barbra Boxer, Charles Rangel, #$%$ Durbin, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee and others have done to our Great Republic over the past 6 to 10 years, it absolutely turns my stomach.

  • dowjones1234 by dowjones1234 Aug 12, 2014 7:19 PM Flag

    The US and all of it's Allies must to do a blitz and find out the details (names, detailed family member information, countries, addresses if any, banks and bank accounts where they do business, assets, investments etc.etc.) of who and whom are funding all of these radical terrorists groups. Once that information has been assembled, give a date certain for stopping the funding and support of those terrorists organizations or pay the consequences of deadly force and personal elimination.

    The US and their allies should work together to use all force necessary to eliminate all of those that support and fund any terrorist organization world wide.

    We continue to allow people that have no morals, values or principles to beat us with our own stick of high morals, values and principles.

    It’s time to circle the wagons with all of our allies, draw a hard and unified line and with all terrorist organizations and let them know we mean deadly business just as they do....

    Let's assemble the sides and go to work!

    A recent article posted in a Chicago, Ill news paper by:
    Reis R. Kash, Springfield, Ill.

    Those who compare the bare-chested conqueror of the Crimea with the metrosexual ruler of the United States and find our emperor weak to the point of deserving ridicule miss the essential strength of President Obama.

    It’s no ordinary weakling who can turn a once-respected country into an international joke; reduce Congress to a gaggle of sniveling sycophants; turn the world’s finest medical system into a failed third-rate socialist nightmare with a stroke of his pen; shatter our Constitution without attempted recourse by the sons and daughters of frontiersmen and pioneers whose blood was used to write that inspired document; and turn the people of our once-united states into a herd of competing minorities who, like suckling pigs, are each afraid to lose his place on the government teat should he raise his voice to protest the ruin of our country.

    So don’t denigrate the nonentity ruler who has overcome his uncertain ancestry and ludicrous incompetence to do what no other king of dictator has been able to do in our 237-year history: He has destroyed America.

    “Al Qaeda has been decimated.”

    “The 1980’s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.”

    “Iraq’s future will be in the hands of it’s people.”

    “A red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. That would change my calculus.”

    “Egyptians have made it clear that nothing less than genuine democracy will carry the day.”

    “To take out a credit card from the bank of China in the name of our children. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.”

    “No question that Libya would be better off with Qaddafi out of power.”

    “You know, they said we needed to triple the Border Patrol. Or now they’re going to say we need to quadruple the Border Patrol. Or they’ll want a higher fence. Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want to put alligators in the moat.”

    Obama’s history of predicting world events isn’t too stellar. Perhaps that’s because neither is his policy...

    1. Jamming through The Health-care Reform Bill without one Republican vote. Present approval rating of the Health-care Reform Bill is 39.8% with 55.8% disapproving. Coupled with all the lies and mistruths from the President before, during and after the jam through the approval rating is surprisingly high.
    2. Failing to stop Iran’s nuclear enrichment processes above the electrical generation level.
    3. So far, Obama has green lighted Assad, Putin and Iran. And, Iran is backing and supporting ISIS as well as Hamas.
    4. Obama has Ballooned the National Deficit from $10 Trillion to it’s present figure of $17 Trillion. It’s estimated to be at $20 Trillion by the end of his second term. Yikes!!
    5. He has failed to fix the housing market. Freddie and Fannie are still in business and going strong.
    6. He over promised on the economic recovery to all those that wanted to believe and were willing to listen but were to uneducated and inexperienced to see through the fog of lies and mistruths.
    7. He has created a permanent underclass of people with no jobs and no education. He, his White House staff and Senate minions have flooded the nation with unlawful immigrants that are in direct competition with lawful employed and unemployed Americans.
    8. Obama and his supporters are running a disinformation campaign that is not only against but is ruining our Great Republic.
    9. He and his minions have enhanced the welfare system so that it now pays more for people to stay home than to work. Additionally, he has made no efforts to police those that are taking advantage of the system.

    There's an old sea story about a ship's Captain who inspected his sailors, and afterward told the first mate that his men smelled bad...
     The Captain suggested perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally. The first mate responded, "Aye, aye sir, I'll see to it immediately!"
    The first mate went straight to the sailors’ berth deck and announced, "The Captain thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear." He continued, "Reid, you change with Schumer, Obama, you change with Holder, and Pelosi, you change with Boxer."

    Someone may come along and promise "Change" but don't count on things smelling any better.

    Obama, “Change You Can Count On.” He so love the poor he created millions more.... And, they voted for him... Twice!

    The definition of the word conundrum: Something that is puzzling or confusing.

    1. America is capitalist and greedy; yet half of the population is subsidized.
    2. Half the population is subsidized; yet they think they are victims.
    3. They think they are victims; yet their representatives run the government.
    4. Their representatives run the government; yet the poor keep getting poorer.
    5. The poor keep getting poorer; yet they have things that people on other countries can only dream about.
    6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about; yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

    Three short sentences should tell you about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

    1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few.
    2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare of food stamps running out of money? What's interesting is the first group worked and earned their money, the second group didn't.
    3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not cutting or stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens?

    Am I missing something here?

    BT541, I did work and retire from Chevron, great company and they treated me very well.

    Having been retired for several years now and have had more time to read, think and contemplate about the present state or our Great Republic, I now feel more strongly than ever that Chevron should move to Houston, Texas where attitudes, values, morals and principles are more, “Main Stream.”

    Presently, the majority of our population and cooperations are being bullied by a small percentage of our population and supported by the liberal, progressive media that continues to grease, “The Squeaking Wheel.”

    Still invested in Chevron and collecting those great dividends!

    13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be
    extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the
    strain we might place on their economy. 

    14. I want to receive free food stamps. 

    15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies. 

    16. I'll need income tax credits so that although I don't pay Mexican
    taxes, I'll receive money from the government. 

    17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 to
    help me buy a new car. 

    18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican
    Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement. 

    I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things
    for all of his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico. I am sure that the
    President of Mexico won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.
    Thank you so kindly sir.

    Do you see how stupid this looks when you put it in writing???? 
    Logic is dead. 
    Excellence is punished. 
    Mediocrity is rewarded. 
    And dependency is to be revered. 
    This is present day America. 
    When people rob banks they go to prison. 
    When they rob the taxpayer they get re-elected.

    This could not be more clearly or perfectly stated:

    Dear Mr. Obama:

    I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my
    health, and I would like to ask you to assist me. 
    We're planning to simply walk across the border from San Diego into Mexico,
    and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements. 

    We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration
    quotas and laws. 

    I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you
    mind telling your buddy, the President of Mexico , that I'm on my way over? 

    Please let him know that I will be expecting the following: 

    1. Free medical care for my entire family. 

    2. English-speaking Government bureaucrats for all services I might
    need, whether I use them or not. 

    3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English. 

    4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking
    (bi-lingual) teachers. 

    5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American
    culture and history. 

    6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag
    poles at their school. 

    7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch. 

    8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to
    government services. 

    9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don't plan to purchase
    car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn
    local traffic laws. 

    10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from
    their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol
    car has at least one English-speaking officer. 

    11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my housetop, put U.S. flag decals
    on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any
    complaints or negative comments from the locals. 

    12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or
    have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

    Let's lower the rhetoric and back off.

    A. Allow those men who want to marry men, marry men.

    B. Allow those women who want to marry women, marry women.

    C. Allow those folks who want to abort their babies, abort their babies.

    D. In three generations, there will be no Democrats…

    Don't you just love it when a plan comes together…….

  • “The Budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome will become bankrupt.

    Why doesn't Obama and all of his liberal supporters and henchmen send the biggest share of illegal immigrants that are flooding our Southern Borders to those liberal, progressive and democratic states that are in favor of illegal immigration? Why shouldn't they be taking care of them with their tax dollars earned by hard working Americans in their states? Let's ship lots of those illegal immigrants to those states that support illegal immigration and let them use their welfare departments for food stamps and free services, their hospitals for medical treatment, their school systems for their education and flood their job markets with cheap labor.

    Let's send a bunch to the door steps of all those liberal, progressive democrats that caused this recent and catastrophic influx of illegal immigrants and have them take care of them with their money (their salaries and benefits paid by US tax payers) Just saying.
