Scotland.

So, I wanted to write this before the results came in as to whether Scotland would form their own country or stay with England.  I find it extremely fascinating because it isn't an American political decision, so therefore, I really don't have that strong of a stance.  With that being said, I think my stance is one I haven't heard people express.

I see the arguments of both sides.  I do think it would cause a troubling economic impact on both England and Scotland if the referendum does in deed pass.  I heard a Scottish business owner express worrisome views on how it would effect his business because now he would be treated like every other foreign nation.  I see the problems with the debt and the currency issues.  I understand that this is not the best economic outlook for England or Scotland.

However, I do understand what it is like for a group of people to feel like they do not have their voices heard.  England's political landscape is not the same as America.  Regions like Scotland do not have the same freedoms that states have in America.  I heard one man express that he voted "No" because he did not wish to have a whole new country, but he still wanted more freedom for the area like states have in the United States of America.

With that, I say that I feel for you, man.  I wish American states would use the powers given to them under our Constitution.  (The Tenth Amendment is the best.)  So when you hear these people expressing they just want the same freedom in Scotland that states have in America, and they are the one's voting "No," I see how these people feel oppressed.

Let's put it this way.  You're a conservative who lives in California, or you're a liberal who lives in Texas.  Now, imagine that you are not allowed to transfer states.  After a while, you would feel oppressed and after a while, you would feel oppressed.  Over a longer time, people would eventually try to take action.

Personally, I think this is democracy at its finest.  In America, I'm personally really tired of judges making up their own rulings on everything under the sun because it's brought before the court, and they want to slant America in their direction.  On major decisions, such as gay marriage, why not put it on the ballot?  It's for the people of your state to decide, and if you don't like how your state votes, you can move with your feet.

I think Scotland is providing the world with a real example of how democracy should work.  We don't need to vote on everything.  That is what we elect Senators and Representatives for.  However, on major issues, I believe they should be placed on the ballot.

Another reason, besides the fact of democracy, is that it drives people to the polls and makes them more politically engaged.  Have you seen these turnouts?  They're close to or over 90%!  The 2012 Presidential election had a 57.5% voter turnout rate.  People really care about this referendum.



On a side note, I found it really strange that there wasn't much polling going on.  For an American presidential election, we are always watching the polls for weeks leading up to and then the whole day of the election.  However, there was absolutely no exit polling.  As an American, this seems insane.  Even though exit polling is not the most accurate, we still are always trying to gauge how strong or weak a state will vote for a candidate.  However, the announcers have their own ideas based on party affiliation, but there were no exit polls.  It seems crazy.

On another side note, the British really need to stop using the phrase "thumping victory."

As I wrote this, "No" seems to be pulling away.  However, the larger populated areas have not come in yet, so you never know.

And that is your opinion on the Scots from a Scott.

Vilifying the Messanger.

Look, I know when I post controversial political opinions online, not everyone is going to agree.  I get that.  With that being said though, I tackle issues, not people.  What is it with people vilifying you as a person because of what you believe?

A little over a year ago, if you would have asked me if I though online comments alone could cause someone to commit suicide, I wouldn't have believed you.  However, after a year, I have seen how downright mean, nasty, and relentless people can be to you as a person.  I see how those who are insecure with themselves initially could be driven to suicide just from the hate-filled comments directed at them online.

The prime example of this was last night.  However, before we get there, I need to tell you what led up to it.

On the Tumblr page for my blog, I try to focus on an individual who shares conservative values for extended periods of time.  Most of summer, I focused on quotes from Thomas Sowell.  However, in August, I decided to shift my attention to another conservative figure: Ann Coulter.  As a result, I would have a picture and quote which I called Ann Coulter Daily.  I have never had a problem in that month; in fact, it has help start some healthy dialogue on conservative positions.

This brings us to two nights ago.  I had decided to use Ms. Coulter's controversial quote on the murder of abortionist Thomas Tiller which read, "I don't really like to think of it as murder.  It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester. ... I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don't want to impose my moral values on others."  Controversial, I know.  Still, it got a message out to people.  Therefore, I received some hate mail, which I turned into a post explaining why I am pro-life.  This led to others asking questions.  As a result of all this, I received a message yesterday afternoon which read, "That actually makes so much sense. A sperm isn't a human. An egg isn't a human. But when they come together and exchange their DNA they form a new and distinct human organism. WHY DIDN'T I REALIZE THIS BEFORE!?!?!?"

Whether this was a true statement or not, I'll never know.  However, I figured that even if I was able to change just one person's opinion on abortion that I had done some good in the world, and maybe down the road that person could influence the saving of an unborn's life.

Therefore, I decided to stick with the theme of abortion, considering all the positive feedback I had received from the first one.  It was the following.


Wouldn't you know that within minutes of posting the liberal pro-abortion mob would start attacking?  I should have probably let it go, seeing as I was clearly outnumbered.  However, I'm not one to back down, especially on the issue of abortion.  Therefore, I wrote a response.

Who knew pro-abortion liberals could get so riled up over a quote eight years old?
It all started yesterday when I posted my daily Ann Coulter quote.  This one was on the murder of abortionist Thomas Tiller in which Ms. Coulter wrote, “I don’t really like to think of it as murder.  It was terminating Tiller in the 203rd trimester… I am personally opposed to shooting abortionists, but I don’t want to impose my moral values on others.”  As a result, this quote stirred a healthy discussion on abortion today, so I decided to stick with the theme of abortion in today’s quote. 
Today’s was: “Liberals are more upset when a tree is chopped down than when a child is aborted.”  However, unlike the first day, the liberal attack mob was quick to attack the eight-year old quote in full force. 
I’d like to outline some of the comments.  “Probably because you can’t abort a child, considering a ‘child’ is born and you can’t abort a born individual. Also tree’s provide life-sustaining oxygen for all of us, provide food and habitat for wildlife and look pretty. Fetuses don’t really do jack shit for anyone.”  So apparently, everyone who says they are with child needs to stop immediately because this grammar Nazi says so.  How dare you refer to that as your child or baby Chelsea Clinton!  Don’t you know it’s a fetus?! 
“Also with deforestation and the continuing destruction of the environment by humans is a big problem. Without trees the world will die.”  So, you are admitting that you are more upset when a tree is chopped down than when a child is aborted?  Somehow, you managed to prove exactly what the quote was saying by commenting on the quote.  Seems like the joke is on you. 
“When a fetus can take in carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen, which keeps us alive, come talk to me.”  First off, you’re from Canada.  As Ann Coulter would say you’d “better hope the United States doesn’t roll over one night and crush [you].”  Are you saying we should just let people on ventilators die because they cannot take in enough oxygen through the air (not carbon dioxide)? 
Oh liberals, you always humor me.
Before we get into the responses to this, let me just say the Ann Coulter quote on Canada was meant to be a joke that I don't think the woman took as a joke. Secondly, she will be come the most loud-spoken critic of me, so we're just going to focus on her responses.  However, just take the quantity and multiply it by 20 and you'll get closer to how many hate-filled messages I got.

(By the way, I'm the one who is censoring the responses.)

Aw, can’t actually reply to post, you have to make an entire separate one to avoid confrontation?  
Abortion is literally aborting a fetus, terminating a pregnancy. That’s not someone being a grammar nazi, that’s them using proper terminology. But I know that terrifies anti-choicers like you. Not heart wrenching and manipulative enough right? And ‘baby’ is a term of endearment, it’s not even a scientific or medical term for any point in the human life. Considering people call their significant others baby, they can call their pet baby. Hell, people call fictional characters their baby. A fetus is a fetus, it’s not dehumanizing it, it’s the proper term. 
Yes, I’m Canadian. Is there supposed to be a point here? And I don’t really care what Ann Coulter says, she’s a piece of sh*t. The United States can’t crush us, they tried, and oops.. we burned down their White House. If it didn’t work then it clearly won’t work now. In regards to your point, it makes absolutely no sense. Without trees, no oxygen. No oxygen, we die, including the people who need ventilators. Everyone. Sooo.. yeah they’re pretty important, don’t you think? Or do you want to keep dancing around the topic and throwing around false equivalences? Because it’s pretty sad to watch.

With this, I had pretty much had it, so I did bring out some personal snipes, but no where near what I was about to receive.  However, I would do the same in real life.

 It wasn’t to avoid confrontation.  I figured since my reply was so long, it was long enough to be its own, separate entity. 
You do realize fetus is the Latin word for “offspring”, “bringing forth”, and “hatching of young” right?  I bring this up because, yes, most people do not know what this term actually means.  And if you were to say fetus instead of offspring, it does detach the audience from the humanity.  It is meant to dehumanize life. 
And you seriously think with America’s military and technology capabilities, as well as our population compared to yours, that Canada could take down America?  You must be delusional on more than just abortion. 
And yet again, you prove the exact argument Ann in making by stating you are more concerned with a tree being chopped down than a (you like to call it) fetus being aborted.  I hate to bring economics into this (because I feel it would go over not just most Canadian heads, but all of the world), but I will.  As long as there is a demand for trees, trees will always be on this earth.  You’re trying to make the same argument with trees that people have been making for over 40 years on oil.  When the supply of trees shrinks, the price will go up.  When the price goes up, people find substitutes, such as using a computer instead of notebook paper.  Therefore, trees will always be around because as price increases, more and more people will find alternatives.  Therefore, your argument on trees is invalid.  But I also know how much liberal fear economics. 
What’s actually sad is that you have nothing better to do on a Saturday night than attack the opinions of someone online whom you don’t even know.

I was done after this.  It would be a waste of my time trying to convince the inconvincible.  I had said what I needed to say, and that was that.  But that certainly didn't stop her from personally attacking me.

And again, your point is? There’s multiple versions for the definition, the one I just looked up said ‘Latin for childbirth, pregnancy, offspring’. I’ve got another definition that says ‘the young of an mammal in the womb or egg’. Regardless, it’s still a non sentient fetus with no rights over the pregnant person.  
Are you really that insecure that we need to play mine is bigger than yours? Grow the f*ck up. I’m not playing this game with a war obsessed conservative who all but kisses the a** of a racist piece of trash like Ann Coulter. And you know what, no, I’m not getting into economics either, because it’ll go straight through your narrow little mind, since you feel like you’re on top of everyone else in this world because ‘MURICA.  
You made this post on a Saturday night, tagged it, with the full intention of attracting attention, because in your main post you mentioned deliberately targeting liberals with your quotes. Then, like a massive jacka** you turn around and play the ‘oh you have nothing better to do with your time’ card. It’s pathetic, since you’re the one looking for a fight, then run with your tail between your legs when you get called out. Typical.  
I have no intention of speaking with you further, it’s not worth anymore of my time.

I just want to say I had absolutely no intentions of a fight.  I just wanted to keep the healthy dialogue on abortion going, seeing as many people were asking actual questions on my pro-life views.  However, even though she said it wasn't worth any more of her time, she still continued to vilify me.

Yeah, no longer wasting my time with people like that. Then again I’m not surprised at another war loving, racist ‘pro-lifer’ who supports garbage that spews sh*t like this: “We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity.” (more gems from her, a fair warning, this woman is seriously disgusting). Just more pro-life compassion for you though.

My point being: people need to start thinking about what they say on the internet.  Go ahead and disagree with a quote, but don't start personally attacking someone because of their political views.  You don't know who I am.  You don't know anything about me.  Don't put words in my mouth or thoughts in my head because you want to vilify me.

I am not racist piece of trash.  I am not war obsessed.  I am not narrow-minded.  I am not a jacka**.

I am a defender of life.  I believe life begins at fertilization, and anything that stops the child from forming, works as an abortion.  I believe everyone deserves life.  I believe I am not God and should not be making life and death decisions for another human being.

If you are going to say things like this over the internet, you better be willing to say them to somebody's face.  And I don't mean just sitting in your room, confirming to yourself that you would do it in real life, I mean you actually would.

For all pro-abortionists (because that's what they really are), I give you this task.  Look someone like this woman, who was meant to be aborted, in the eye and tell her she doesn't deserve the same right to life that you are.  It's easy to be against someone who cannot defend himself or herself.

13 Years.

13 years ago was one of the darkest days in American history...



13 years ago was the end of an era and the start of a new one...

13 years ago was when America's worst nightmare wasn't a dream...

13 years ago was when the world stopped and watched in horror...

13 years ago was when 2,977 innocent civilians tragically lost their lives...

13 years ago was when brave men and women sacrificed themselves to help others...

13 years ago was when it didn't matter whether you were white, black, gay, straight, Christian, atheist, Republican, Democrat; we were all Americans...

13 years ago was when we realized the important things in life...

Where were you 13 years ago?

Were you in school?  At work?  At the grocery store?  Making breakfast?  Getting out of bed?

What did you do?

Did you stare in horror?

Did you cry?

Did you pick your kids up from school?

Did you call your family to tell them that you loved them?

Did you pray?

Did you forget that argument or that grudge because you realized life was too short?

Did you realize life would never be the same again?

13 years ago was a long time...

How do you feel now?

Do you feel safer?

Do you fear another attack?

Do you cringe every time you hear a low-flying plane?

Do you still feel the same as you did back then?

Does this day still move you to tears?

Does this day still make you want to pray?

Does this day remind you that we are all still Americans?

Does this day make you sad?  Or angry?  Or any emotion at all?

Do you still remember what happened like it was yesterday?

Do you still remember?

Still remember that day 13 years ago...

Will Artists Pleast Stop with the Political Messages?

So, I saw this video spreading around Facebook.  At first, I thought it was just some public service announcement, but it actually turns out that it's a song by an artist named Prince Ea.  (I'll let you be the judge of that.)  While I have to agree with some of the points he's trying to make, when he gets into political subjects, he is dead wrong.


Ok, go... No, Stop. Stop. Stop.  The second line of the song is already wrong.  The air is not polluted.  The ocean is not contaminated. The air is the cleanest it's been since the start of the industrial revolution thanks to technology.  The same goes for bodies of water as well.

Ok, continue... Stop it again.  Animals are going extinct.  Thank you captain obvious.  Animals have been going extinct since the dawn of time.  It's just a fact of nature.  Imagine the tearjerker he could have written when the dinosaurs were wiped out.

Start her up again... Why do I even bother?  I will agree the economy is collapsing (thanks Obama) and education is shot (thanks unions).  However, most police are not corrupt.  We all know this is a jab at Ferguson.  Stop it already.  There are no facts, and we won't have them until this all plays out in court.  So, before you start caterwauling about all cops being racists, let's let the facts roll in.  Ok?

Here we go... Just a few quick thoughts.  I don't think intelligence is shunned.  Maybe it's just a cultural difference, but I've never really experienced the name-calling of geeks like Hollywood portrays.  I think intelligence is rewarded.  Additionally, I don't think everybody is medicating either.  I feel this is too wide sweeping of a generalization.  Some people might be, but the majority aren't.

Continue... Hold it there.  "What's popular is more important than what's right."  Hallelujah!  He did hit one nail on the head.

Let's go... "It's easier to find a big mac than an apple, and when you find the apple, it's been genetically processed."  Oh, how this man needs a lesson in economics.  Supply and demand.  Supply and demand.  Trust me, if I want an apple, I'll find it.  You don't need to put regulations on my food.  I'll eat what I want to eat.  Additionally, stop with the scare tactics over GMOs.  None of these claims stand up to scientific scrutiny.  Let's go GMO.

Next... "Presidents lie.  Politicians trick us."  Please tell me you are referring to the current President and Congress.  Hopefully, the days of blame Bush are finally over.

Arriba! Arriba! Andale! Andale!... Hold the phone.  Race is not still an issue.  Sorry if I sound a little cruel (well, actually I'm not), if you have a successful career as a music artist along with a bunch of other blacks, I find it hard to imagine race is this giant issue before us.  Granted, I'm sure there are still a few racists left in the world.  However, the overwhelming majority of the American population is not racist.  Stop playing the race card and pretending to be a victim of society.  The real problems blacks face is birth outside of wedlock, which causes economic hardships, which means black children grow up in poor neighborhoods, which means they don't get a good education, and then they have children outside of wedlock and the cycle continues.

Go... "92% of songs on the radio are about sex."  I looked into this claim.  Turns out this line is based on a study conducted on songs from 2011.  Turns out the study includes topics such as other body parts besides genitalia, courtship, reputation, fidelity assurance, rejection, and parenting in this umbrella topic for sex.  Even moreover, the top three songs from 2011 were Adele's "Rolling in the Deep," LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," and Katy Perry's "Firework."  Knowing this study, they were all probably included in some category, but I think it's safe to say they are not about sex.

This is longer than I thought, but press that play button again... We're skipping over a bunch to "We tell our kids not to get that degree.  The jobs don't pay enough."  Sorry parents are concerned for their child's future.  It's simple.  You need to find something you want to do but is also practical enough to pay the bills.  Major in whatever you want, but don't be complaining when you can't find a job with your women's studies, African American studies, dance, performance art, or art history degree.  Sorry your parents try to help you from making a mistake.  Guess you better learn one of the following two phrases: "Would you like fries with that?" or "Paper or plastic?"

Play on... Hold up.  "Good deeds are only done when there is a profit margin."  Maybe I just hold my fellow mankind to a higher standard, but I do believe the average human being are generally caring and compassionate.  America donates more money to charities than any other nation, and in times of crisis, we come together.  I take offense to this line for my fellow mankind.

Roll it... Wait.  Wait.  Wait.  "There are states people can legally be discriminated against because they were born a certain way."  I hope you aren't referencing gays because you're dead wrong.  There are states where people with religious objections to gay marriage have been forced to provide service such as photographs and wedding cakes, even when voicing religious objections.  How is that for discrimination against religion?  You want to know the group who is legally discriminated against?  The unborn.

Go!  Go!  Go!... *Insert eye roll*  Corporations tell us to buy.  Really?  I had no idea corporations wanted us to buy their product.  I just thought they didn't want to make a profit.  Fact of the matter is, it is someone in that corporation's job to get you to buy their product.  Whether you buy it or not completely weighs on your shoulders.  Before you blame the big, bad corporations, realize that you are in charge of the decisions in your life.  However, it's easier to blame a corporation than yourself.  Isn't it?

Oh finally, the end.  Isn't it ironic how he tells us that a path to a new beginning starts within us, yet he seems to support ideas that would regulate the freedom we have?  Overall, I must say it was a good attempt.  However, when you actually stop to analyze some of the comments he makes, you realize many of them are outright lies or at least misleading.  If run through the Washington Post fact checker, these claims would almost certainly result in four Pinocchios.

Libyan Planes Missing before 9/11.

I usually don't get nervous over stories I read.  I like to feel I have a fairly level head.  However, this is one of those stories we need to prepare for the worst and pray for the best because it is very worrisome.

I've noticed the topics the news tries to frighten us with are usually fluff.  However, it is the stories we don't hear about that we should worry about.  One example of this I have previously written on is the vulnerability of the United States power grid.  This is one of those stories.

As of two weeks ago, I first saw this news coming from the Blaze.  More recently, news has grown around the missing planes in Libya.  Just days away from the anniversary of 9/11, Islamic militants have control of 11 commercial jet planes.

Though I doubt the United States will directly be targeted like before, I know Islamic militants will try to cause as much chaos across the globe as they can.  Therefore, Europe and Northern Africa had best be on an extremely close look-out the next few days.

However, I don't think people are going to be the target.  Planes can only kill a few thousand people.  The fear is already here.  What has the capacity to destroy the global economy and send the Western world into a harsh economic recession?  Oil.

It makes sense if you think about it.  As people over at the Blaze have pointed out, the Syrian oil fields would be massive targets for the terrorists.  The Syrian government would only have 90 seconds to respond if terrorists were to launch their assault on the oil fields.

However, there is one country I believe the Blaze left out of the mix.  Russia.  Basically, all of Europe receives its oil from the Russian pipelines.  Could you imagine if oil. literally, stopped flowing into Europe?  Economic catastrophe for the Western world.

Furthermore, the Ukraine is still in chaos.  Some of the major pipelines run directly through the Ukraine in order to reach further into Europe.  Imagine one of these planes crashing into a major pipeline.  Not only would less oil reach Europe and prices rise globally, the environmental impacts of the oil spill would be detrimental to the unstable country as well.

The point of the matter being: this is what happens when you let terrorists run amuck in the Middle East.  If Obama would have said a year ago that he wished to go into Syria in order to suppress the growing Islamic terrorist networks in the region, I would have fully supported his effort.  However, he said he wished to get involved in a country's civil war over chemical weapons.  Then, he turned around at the beginning of the year and called ISIS a JV squad.

Look.  If you're going to lie to the American people, then you might as well do what your military advisors tell you so that it looks like you were trying to mislead the terrorists.  However, when you mislead the American people and do the wrong thing, you look like you're JV on the world stage, Mr. President.  You look incompetent, uncertain, and foolish.

Not that these Islamic militants getting aircrafts is Obama's fault, but would we be in this situation we're in today if we had a president who didn't create a vacuum in the Middle East and was tough on terrorists?

All I know is that Islamic militants have  11 jet planes, and I am uncertain over any decision my Commander in Chief makes, especially regarding foreign policy.  When in these situations, don't you fear for the safety of the world too?

Remembering Joan Rivers.

It just became even harder to laugh this year.  On September 4, 2014, Joan Rivers has passed away.  With the memory of Robin William's suicide still fresh in our minds, it's hard to take in that another comedy legend can be lost so soon.

Joan Rivers exploded into the comedy scene on The Tonight Show in 1965 with her satirical, biting humor.  She was never afraid to say what was on her mind, and anyone or anything was fair game.  As she stated, "I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking."

This clip is from The Ed Sullivan Show in 1967.


As years advanced, she became a great entrepreneur.  She did it all - actress, comedian, television host, writer, producer, etc.  No matter what she did, there was always humor and controversy surrounding her jokes.


Most importantly, what I admire about Rivers is her constant fight against the PC Police and her outspoken support for Israel.  She doesn't care whether her opinions will advance her career; she only cared about staying true to what she believed.


Whether you liked Joan Rivers or not, her death is another loss in the comedic world this year.  When you lose this much talent in one year, it would be catastrophic to lose any more.

Out to the Golf Course Obama.

How, in the greatest country on Earth, can we not have a plan for dealing with ISIS?  We are the strongest country militarily in the world.  Yet, you mean to tell me that we have no plan to deal with ISIS in the Syria and Iraq when we've been watching them for four years?

Yet, this shouldn't come as a surprise to any of us.  This is the same man who refused to travel to the boarder when news of the crisis was sweeping across America.  Instead, he decided to attend fundraisers and turn a blind eye to our national security and rule of law.

Still, this was the man who went against his military advisors and pulled American troops out of Iraq too early and too fast.  He was warned that he would create a vacuum in the Middle East for terrorist groups to rise up.  Even Hillary Clinton has publicly stated Obama pulled out too early and created a vacuum.  Yet, he didn't care.  He only cared about his popularity.

This was a man, who while taking a three-week vacation at Martha's Vineyard on the taxpayer's dime, who continued to vacation through the beheading of an American journalist.  He showed up to a press conference (without even a tie on), made a few quick statements of trying to get James Foley out, and was seen on the golf course in minutes.  Pathetic.

Great Britain's Prime Minister rushed back from his vacation to work after the beheading, but not Obama.  Now, senior Pentagon officials say Obama's hesitation on the mission to rescue James Foley is what delayed the mission, possibly causing our citizen his life.  Obama so critically thought over the decision for almost 30 days in July.  In the same time period, he managed the play 6 rounds of golf.  Even moreover, Obama sent no representatives to James Foley's memorial.  At the same time, he managed to find three who went to Michael Brown's.

This is the same man who will not take action to help our marine being held in a Mexican jail for accidentally crossing the border with firearms in his truck.  Instead of taking action, the White House finally responded to a petition for U.S. Marine Andrew Tahmooressi's release by saying,
"We have close economic and cultural ties, and we work closely with [Mexico] on numerous sensitive issues. While we will not go into detail about our private diplomatic discussions on this case, U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, have spoken to Mexican officials at the highest levels regarding Mr. Tahmooressi’s case."
You cross the border into Mexico, accidentally, and you face up to 14 years in prison because the Obama administration is too incompetent to actually achieve results in foreign policy related issues.  You cross the border into America, and you'll receive free healthcare, welfare, and a "Democrat for life" bumper sticker.

Therefore, should it really be all that shocking that Obama has "no plan" to deal with ISIS besides dropping humanitarian aid to those dealing with this torment?  What would be really shocking is if Obama said we had no plan and carried out bombing strikes on the terrorists the next day.  Now, that would have been shocking.

However, Obama is out to the golf course on this one, as he always is on foreign policy.   He'd rather play golf than help our marine in Mexico.  He'd rather fundraise than deal with a crisis on our border.  He'd rather vacation than help our journalist captured by terrorists.  Yet, what do you expect from someone who votes present in the Illinois State Senate.  At least in that case, he was present.

Obama has abandoned any and all foreign policy.  He's always looking for approval from other countries when he says we "will not go it alone."  He's like a woman trying to find a bathroom partner, but no one wants to go with her.  Hopefully, the world can hold on until 2017 because anybody, even Hillary, would have been better than this.
