President and US are just floundering militarily

The cuts in military at a time of increased terror awareness is just insane. How could we possibly cut bases in Europe? Shouldn't we be expanding?

Oh wait. The war on terror is over and we're going home. Safe and sound. Terrorists are on the run and...uh...no. Sorry. We seem to be completely clueless at terrorism.

Any wonder why we are floundering?

Just yesterday Eric Holder says Europe must do more....to detect terror. Aint that rich? Mr. Holder, how about us? Why are WE dropping the ball?

Not sending someone to Paris for the march was a huge mistake. But let's not pretend it was not on purpose. Sending a high level official like John Kerry would make it seem like..uh....we are agreeing that the terrorism threat is growing.

Our military and our terrorism fighting is just floundering. No other way to put it. Just today the twitter account of our military command was hacked by terrorist supporters.

Our  military is up to the task of protecting us...only if they are given the chance and the tools to do it.

But are they? Sadly, not at this time. Hopefully the Republican controlled congress can right the ship. President Obama needs to know that it was HIS policies that lost control of congress for his party. But he seems to be floundering....
 
Like making a big thing out of  "free" community college. Yeah.

Nothing is free including freedom.

We can't end without mentioning his motorcade in Phoenix going right by a VA hospital. And Obama not taking a few minutes to visit. Shame on you Mr. President. Never let our veterans get in the way of making a political speech.

On a side note, any feminist not standing with the 17 year old girl in Connecticut being forced to get cancer treatment is a hypocrite. Women (and girls) supposedly have complete control over their bodies, right?

DISH needs Fox News ASAP

Going on two weeks without fox news. We never realized how many hours daily we watched it. It's where we get all of our news. They are the only network that will stand up for veterans, our military, and our police officers.

DISH says not to change as that's not the answer. That's very funny. Just a few months ago, DirectTV ditched the weather channel. Big deal, right? I mean how many people watch that instead of fox? And DISH clearly made a campaign to switch if you need the weather channel!!!!!!

And now they say, "Don't switch"? Hilarious only if it were not so sad.

I'll bet foxs newsies like us would gladly pay more for it. We would. Raise our rates a buck a month and move on.

What's even more sad, is that we are paying almost 50% more for the SAME channels as we did when we first signed up! I never hear DISH tell us they were sorry, or they will give us more premium channels, or the like. Nothing. Your bill just keeps going up without any reason.

Here's the bad part. Fox news is to blame. They have zero ways for us to watch it now. They do no streaming online. I'd pay for that service in a heart beat. Fox news has enough cash and people to get a streaming service up and running today. Just think of the millions of DISH people who would be paying for it?

Oh well. We are all just pawns in corporate games. And consumers are the losers.

Perhaps, just perhaps, we can make DISH pay dearly with much less revenue by all of is standing together and ditching any cable/satellite TV service that does not have fox news.

January 1st, and still no fox news, we are outta there!

CIA Report Hurts Veterans, Military, and United States Citizens

Everybody now has heard about the CIA report from the Senate. This was not a bipartisan report. It was a political report. Senator Feinstein did not have to release it. She chose to release it because she knew with Republicans in charge in a few days, it would never have seen the light of day. There was no reason to release it.

First of all, everybody on both sides of the political aisle say this could cause the deaths of Americans around the world. Military and civilian. So why release it? Remember the lunacy about Benghazi having something to do with a video? That the person releasing the video was wrong because of the violence? It proved to be NOT for the video, but what about now? Someone else can be wrong to release something that affects American lives, but the United States can? Flat out wrong.

We need to make no apologies for keeping America safe. Nobody knows what information was gotten. In fact, no CIA members were ever interviewed. How can you have a report like this, yet nobody who was there was ever talked to? That's crazy.

Look at the lame liberal media. Calling this torture. Calling this unamerican. Calling us like Nazi Germany. Such idiots. We had no idea what was coming next after 9-11. We had to do everything in our power. And we should be dang grateful that the CIA did this. Very grateful. There is no point in releasing something like this. We now do not use these techniques. So why report on what we did 13 years ago? Makes no sense. Other than being political. Our enemies hate us anyway. This is not going to make them start hating us.

But it does make our military more open to attacks. Here and abroad. That's shameful.

Why doesn't the newsmedia have a problem with drones? We drop unmanned drones on people who we only suspect are terrorists. We have indeed killed innocent victims with our drones. President Obama is the Drone King. The newsmedia gives this a pass.

Somehow it is "okay" to kill a person, no trial, innocent bystanders and all. Oh but we can't waterboard them! That's mean!

Gruber was right. The American people are stupid. Stupid for voting these people into office. Stupid for listening to the lame media call enhanced interrogation bad, but killing good.

We for one need a secret CIA. They do not need to air their dirty laundry. They are the people who are keeping us safe. And we say, do everything you can to keep us that way.
