When America dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the argument for whether that was a humane thing to do, is still being debated. Many people said that we should have continue the war and sooner or later we could have overtaken Japan as we did Germany, rather than killing all those innocent lives.
But..what many people don’t know, is that the Japanese had developed a nonmetallic land mine that could not be detected by any known means. They planted these mines in random patterns across the beaches of Japan and along all possible invasion routes. Estimates of deaths from those land mines alone ran into the hundreds of thousands. They tried in vain to find a way to destroy them. Dropping bombs from airplanes in Europe failed.
According to Richard Anderson, a renown staticist who was working on the problem with the Defense Department at the time—
One of the reasons why the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan was that all their experiments and calculations showed that it was impossible to destroy these mines by any other means.
So…if history repeats itself…we may all wonder about Iran: Will we ever see another nuclear weapon used in our lifetime?
And is the reason why our Congress approves such an unconstitutional measure of using drones on our home soil—is because they know something we don’t? Are there terrorists in the United States already with nuclear material? Some experts say it’s entirely possible.
Ahmadinejad has threatened to hit the ‘heart’ of America with some kind of devastation weapon. North Korea…is threatening New York. Obama says nothing.
Today we find out that when Obama was told about the attack happening in Benghazi, he told Leon Panetta to do whatever they felt necessary, and then Obama took off at 5 o’clock and nobody spoke to him again, even though the attack went on for hours… which means:.
1) He’s the most incompetent President ever in the history of the United States and just went off to have his big dinner and watch basketball…or
2) He ordered the stand-down in Benghazi and sacrificed those men because he didn’t want it to get out that the ambassador was helping supply Al-Qaeda with arms and weapons before his elections, and everything that happened following that was a cover-up.
3) Both of the above.
Nobody finds it less than funny that after all these years, our government couldn’t have come out and just admitted that the Japanese had land mines that so well protected their island, we couldn’t defeat them from the ground. It would have made a lot more sense. Was not revealing this fact a way to make us look big, and invincible?
“What we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem.” Thomas Merton “No Man Is An Island:
So..what is the truth? Obama lies. Panetta lies. Hillary lies. Who do we believe? Dick Cheney, the most hated man in America for years, said that his worst nightmare was to wake up to a nuclear attack on an American City.
Nobody Thinks….Hell, I’m not sure what I think, but I do know one thing…I’d rather be drinking Rum & Coke on the beach in Hawaii than thinking about any of this…care to join me?
When it comes to our ‘public servants’ spending taxpayers money, very few can resist, and when it comes to getting their hands on taxpayers cash, it seems our public servants just can’t help themselves. They’ve got to spend it on parties and vacations, and celebrate all their birthdays!
When Nancy Pelosi wanted her own private jet to take her back and forth from Washington D.C., to California, every week, stocked with a full liquor cabinet and chocolate covered strawberries, she got it.
When Leon Panetta wanted to go back to his walnut farm in California every weekend, he costs the taxpayers around $860,000, due to his special needs for a big plane. He said he needed to get back to his walnut farm because it’s important “just to get your mind straight and your perspective straight.” He got it.
(What? There are no walnuts in D.C.? )
When the Secret Service had to order up 21 prostitutes for their party in Cartagena, Columbia….they got it. After all, they are probably tired of watching the “President” and his family getting to have all that fun all over the world. Maybe they figured it was their turn to relax.
When the GSA was found making a video about their expensive trip to Las Vegas…they got…brought before Congress. What?
“WASHINGTON (AP) — General Services Administration witnesses came under sharp criticism from Congress for a second day on Tuesday, as lawmakers expressed outrage over junkets, bonuses and parties paid for by taxpayers. Questioning ranged beyond the $823,000 paid for a Las Vegas conference in October 2010, to a culture of the nation’s government real estate agency playing fast and loose with taxpayer money.
Family members often were taken along, and in an email exchange between GSA regional executive Jeffrey Neely and his wife last November, they wrote of a planned trip turning into a birthday celebration. The 17-day trip took place last February to Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. Neely – who was placed on administrative leave – wrote his wife:”Rough schedule per our conversation. Guess this’ll be your birthday present?”
Nobody Wants to know: Where’s MY birthday present?
Why is the GSA being singled out? Obama and his wife have wasted more of the taxpayer’s money on their own personal pleasure than any past President in American’s history. Aren’t they ”public servants”? They even went so far as to give their dog his own private jet. Michelle likes to take her own vacations. …on her own personal plane. With 27 people just to dress her.
Can you think of any two public servants who waste more?
Now, we remember Hillary going to Africa with Chelsea, and Laura Bush made a few trips of her own, but is this all really necessary? What are we paying the ambassadors for?
It’s gotta be good to be a ‘public servant’ these days. If anyone cared to check into the many “vacations” held in Las Vegas and Hawaii for the Post Office employees, or state employees, or for that matter, any bureaucracy in the overstuffed turkey called our government, you would find billions of dollars wasted on parties and vacations,( and big expensive offices) all paid by the taxpayer, many of whom can only dream of going to Hawaii.
This is nothing new. What is new is that Congress is looking into it.
Like good politicians, they had to pretend they are mad, because—
IT’S AN ELECTION YEAR!
Even Obama, the one who parties harder than anyone, had to come out and say he would be angry if it was found out his Secret Service had not paid the prostitutes in Columbia. (Did I get that right?)
And Nobody believes that Obama is mad. Obama believes, like most “government servants,” no matter what the cost, they all feel they deserve to party on the taxpayer’s money, because it’s a once in a lifetime piggy bank of free cash that they (and he) would feel stupid not to take advantage of.
The only solution for the nobodies working hard while the govenment employees celebrate their birthdays with thousand dollar lush vacations is: Everybody stop paying taxes.
(Okay, I have no clue)
