Mount Stupid

I do not particularly care about Bowe Bergdahl, his parents or what happened to him when he was playing in the Taliban’s sandbox. He is, at this point in time, totally inconsequential to me. Plenty of time to ponder his fate at a later date because this story is going to go on for-e-ver.

What bothers me is that Barry used his “mighty pen” and signed away the soul of our nation to the devil. Oh, he had the opportunity to retrieve Mr. Bergdahl three years ago by simply paying a ransom for his release. He refused. Why? Because he was determined to use the release of the defector as a way to empty Gitmo, thus keeping one of the million or so campaign promises he made in 2008 and 2012. Regardless of what our government is telling us, I am certain money changed hands. The “captors” are a mercenary group and getting their buddies back was just a small bonus to them.

Funny how he kept quiet about the ransom request, but tried like hell to get Congress to agree to a prisoner exchange with no success. I would not doubt that he made it appear the Haqqani network was insisting on the release of the five most dangerous detainees. That is why he bypassed Congress this time and broke the law. Although, he did advise Harry Greed. Wait. I thought Boehner was third in line for the Presidency. Shouldn’t he have been briefed instead of Harry?

It absolutely infuriates me that Barry is currently speaking at the D-Day remembrance ceremony about our troops, the sacrifices they have made and the selfless way that they volunteered to put their lives on the line to combat terrorism. Meantime, back at Obama Central, his sheeple are doing all they can to discredit the soldiers who served with the defector.   They are being accused of “swift boating” him and being ignorant of the facts surrounding the defector’s little midnight stroll. Barry’s peeps should re-visit the anti-military diatribe Kerry spewed in front of a Congressional Committee when he returned to the U.S. after his time in-country. Perhaps they could watch the many, many interviews given by those who were forced to tolerate his arrogant ass, proving that he flat out lied. To me, “swift boating” means vehemently throwing the truth in the face of those who choose to lie until the façade they have built is reduced to rubble.

I am enraged that those service members who lost their lives, were injured or fought like hell to capture the five vermin seem to be completely forgotten by this administration. Either that or they consider those who actually did serve with honor and distinction to be worth no more than a pimple on a flea’s ass. The same attitude applies to those who were killed searching for a man who made a conscious choice to walk away from his comrades and his country. The Ego in Chief has no concept of the consequences of one’s actions and most likely does not care about the stunning recidivism rate for those detainees released from Gitmo. I suspect this lack of empathy will extend to the families of those who might lose their lives or become severely injured in future attacks planned by the former detainees.  FYI, this is a charming photo I found of Mohammed Fazi.  He is one of the poor, tortured detainees released in trade for the deserter.  He’s the one who still has his head attached to his body:

Those who say many of us are making too much of this need to realize that most of us sincerely don’t give a flying you-know-what about the defector at this time. Most of us are just in awe of the mountain of stupidity that exists between the massive ears of our Dear Leader. Be it Karma or luck, I have to say that it delights me to no end that what Barry thought would be a public relations win has turned on him like a rabid raccoon. Poor Barry…

Burning Down The House

ground hornetsA friend had a ground hornet nest in the garden along the front of the house.  His wife was worried that the kids might get stung when going in or out of the front door.  Our friend had heard that if you pour gasoline on a hornets’ nest, the inhabitants will die and the nest can be safely removed.  (My ex and I did try to talk him out of his plan, recommending he hire an exterminator.) Things he did not consider:

  1. This is supposed to be done at night when the hornets are not active.
  2. Do not use gasoline when the nest is only 12” from the foundation of your home.
  3. Under no circumstances should you set the nest on fire until you have removed it from the hole and placed it a safe distance from any structures on your property.
  4. If there is an entrance hole, always assume there is at least one exit hole.

He poured the gasoline into the hole causing the now extremely agitated hornets to stream out of the exit holes.  His wife opened the front door to see how things were going and was stung several times.  He then attempted to burn the nest while it was underground by lighting fireplace matches and shoving them in the hole.  It eventually caught fire, sending flames out of the exit holes and, in turn, melting a few rows of the brand new vinyl siding on the front of his home before we could get the hose from the back yard and put the fire out.

Somehow, I think Obama is related to this guy.  He just seems to enjoy pouring gasoline on every hornets’ nest in the Middle East without having the foresight to grasp the consequences of his words or actions (well, mostly words).  And, the consequences always seem to bode badly for America and our allies.

If Congress votes “No” to Barry’s proposed actions in Syria, you know darned well he is going to do it anyway.  Personally, I believe the only reason he is waiting for Congress is to have someone else to blame when the hornets swarm and our house starts to melt.
