Oh poop. I don't usually do this, but this is a repost--just because it's so important:




Can you imagine what Israel faces with Iran, Egypt, Syria, Turkey and Russia coming after them? The prophet Ezekiel clearly predicted this battle thousands of years ago and you are watching the players get into position with lightning speed.

Jesus said: "When you see these signs, lift up your head and rejoice. Your redemption draweth nigh." Simply stated: The King is coming! Get ready! Planet earth is about to become the playground for the Anti-Christ and his New World Order. The church will be raptured before the Anti-Christ appears; and I believe he could be introduced in Europe at any time. Pray up! Pack up! We're going up...and very soon.

Oh My G*d!

Is it too late for me to get on board before the rapture? Or will I be left behind with...

Maybe I can hedge my bets by doing a crash study of The Post Rapture Survival Guide.

We will be very fortunate indeed if this thing ends other than disastrously. I don't believe American military force has ever been used this aimlessly in our history.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

I am sure there is a large contingent of our armed forces that agrees with you, DOT.

Bumbo either is our most Machiavellian president evahhhh, or the most incompetent. Anyone taking bets?


VDH's take this morning:

So What Now?

The administration’s incoherence about the Libyan intervention is the logical culmination of Obama’s naive reset-button diplomacy and his skepticism about the role and history of the U.S. abroad — a sort of capstone to, for instance, surging while setting troop withdrawal deadlines in Afghanistan, loudly promising to close Guantanamo within a year then failing to do so, and praising the U.N. and apologizing for the U.S. In a sense, all that hubris earned this present nemesis.

As they say, read the whole thing.


I'm thinking this way: If Obama can't get an out in short-season A ball, what would happen to him in a big league game?

This entire misadventure is a threat to national security.


Hey--Now I've got it. Obama is really one of a set of twins --perhaps a conjoined one at the head--which may explain that mysterious head scar..They take turns speaking..He's not inconsistent, he's the brother.


P.S. That explains the birth certificate thingy, too.


Obama to spend day “behind closed doors”

And check out the video. It is a visual metaphore for Obama's entire presidency.


What this means is that the President may before very long be forced to make the most excruciating decision of his life: to send American soldiers into harm’s way...or not, leaving the alliance in ruins

Between dead American soldiers and the dissolution of NATO, I don't think there can be any question that what would bother Obama more is Pitt's loss to Butler last weekend.

Cybercast News:

President Barack Obama’s intervention in Libya’s civil war has not only failed to win the approval of a majority of the American people, according to a Gallup poll conducted Monday, it also earned the lowest public approval rating of any U.S. military operation polled by Gallup over the past four decades.

In fact, it was the only U.S. military intervention polled by Gallup that received less than majority approval from Americans.

“The 47% of Americans approving of the action against Libya is lower than what Gallup has found when asking about approval of other U.S. military campaigns in the past four decades,” said Gallup's analysis of the poll.

Well, kinetic humanitarian relief was bound to be a hard sell - too many syllables. The President might be more effective in selling it if he presented Operation CF as a simple continuation of the WTF? master plan.


DoT's favorite triangle-mouthed guy is all for the hot kinetic military action, now that a Democrat is in charge.


BTW, aren't all these semantics about not calling it a war exactly the kind of political games Obama promised to change once he got into office?


Clarice, your hypothesis is so uniquely off the wall, it may be completely plausible..

Especially since you never see them photographed together. :)


First Valerie Jarrett locks Obama out then she locks him in!


transparency, ranger.....no more lobbyists. no more closed door meetings. and now a war that is not a war.....

more doubleplusgood Obama duckspeak.

BB(OB?) is crimestopping Qadaffi.

oldthinkers, facecriminals, and other ungoodniks will be sent to joycamps or, in extreme circumstances Room 101.


I guess my quip last night about kinetic energy tank rounds was somewhat prescient given todays comical headlines.

NATO still refusing to take over Odyssey Dawn

Humanitarian Relief Operation Where's The Food?

Frog just shot down towelhead.


Good One, Maybee

Since we don't know who the enemy is we could also start Where's The Folk?

Frau Morgenrot

This does not bode well for Space Harmony. Obama has rudely damaged Libya's kinesphere.


More WTF:

Court Of Appeals Declines To Rule On Union Law

They want it to go to the Supreme Court!!!!!

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

AS long as they do it before the election.


oops - left out the "state" Supreme Court.


Pure politics, they know they have to rule against the Ds -- which would be fatal to their re-election efforts so they kick it to the Supreme Court and blame Prosser when actual law is enforced.

Danube of Thought

That might explain it, Henry. But I would think if that were their motive they would rule in favor of the D's and let Prosser and the others reverse them. Who knew such strange things went on in the Wisconsin courts?

Danube of Thought

What will be the consequences of the law not being published by March 25?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

This was on of yesterday's "quote of the day" offerings, which is so true:

"The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it."

Harry Emerson Fosdick


DoT, I believe lay offs must begin then if the law isn't in effect.

Danube of Thought

Does it also mean the legislature has to pass it again?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

DoT: If you watch Greta, you've seen her every day ask the simple question of, "Why not just pass it again?" She has questioned the legislators who she interviews and the Lt. Gov., and none of them seem to understand her question. They go into all kinds of reasons why they think they'll win in the courts, and Greta keeps trying to bring them back to why bother with the courts when they could just pass the bill again and be done with it. You can tell that they are so concentrated on their talking points and defense, the question goes right over their heads. I keep waiting for one of them to have that V-8 moment and slap their forehead with, "damn, that's a good idea."


Not if the Supreme Ct okays the procedure that was used/I don't think the governor needs to get new approval for the layoffs.

Sara (Pal2Pal)

This is not good.

Reuters reported:

Only 17 percent of Americans see President Barack Obama as a strong and decisive military leader, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll taken after the United States and its allies began bombing Libya.
Danube of Thought

We're regular Greta-watchers (DVR Season Pass), but haven't been watching for the past week or so.

I continue to think that, if they're going to do it over, it would be a great idea to simply say the collective bargaing rights shall be identical to those enjoyed by federal workers as of January 1 of this year.

Danube of Thought

Here's part of Jacobson's update:

"I'm not familiar enough with Wisconsin procedure to know what this means for the hearings scheduled next week before Judge Sumi, and whether such hearings can proceed while an appeal is pending.  But if this indicates a long appellate process, during which the Secretary of State cannot publish the law or the State cannot implement the law, it seems that the Governor and legislature need to rethink the strategy, and re-vote if they still have the votes.

"Reading through the relatively short decision, it is clear that this was a total punt by the Court of Appeals.  Considering that the State will be harmed by the delay in publication, which interferes with the legislative process, the Court could have ruled on the TRO portion base[d] on the same likelihood of success standard employed by Judge Sumi."


Back in the 1950's, when Castro came to power in Cuba, the mafia was thrown out of Havana.

Immediately, the mafia saw the benefits of relocated to Las Vegas. So, hotels got built. And, Frank Sinatra came there to put on shows. Between Frank Sinatra, new hotels, and legalized gambling, guess what happened to Las Vegas?

Or don't guess. See if I care.

Libya's 100% ALL coastline. Never developed. You think only the mafia has eyeballs? You don't see development? You don't see hotels?

Q-Daffy kept a very tight reign, through terror. And, buying off with billions of dollars, a few "very important people. At the UN. In England. France, and America. For billions that came out of his pockets, he bought the UN honchos. Tony Blair. The Clintons. And, Sarkozy.

By the way, Q-Daffy threatened to expose his bank transfers. So, guess what? Wave #1, and his whole infrastructure came tumbling down.

He's also lost his son, Kamis.

And, in Israel, that took one of his TV rants, and turned it into a musical, Zenga-Zenga.

Stick with the anti-war stance and lose.

Sara, the quote from Harry Emerson Fosdick might sail over a lot of heads. I suspect that many more people would be aware of Fearless Fosdick (from the comic strip within the comic strip "L'il Abner" by Al Capp). But I really like the quote anyway.


You know I think Judge Sumi no longer has jurisdiction of the matter since both issues were kicked upstairs.

Danube of Thought

I think you're right. It should be out of her hands unless and until a higher court remands it to her. If the supreme court doesn't take it (why would that happen?), the appellate court would have it. In the jurisdictions where I've worked, anyway.

Danube of Thought

I'm having visions of Joe Bstkflp.

Mark Folkestad

DoT, is it the black cloud hanging over Cleo's head that you're thinking of? Poor old Joe was in the regular L'il Abner. I loved all of Joe Capp's stuff. The spoof of war protesters was my favorite, S.W.I.N.E, or Students Wildly Indignant about Nearly Everything.


-- Joe Capp's stuff --

Al Capp's stuff.
