“Black people who were never slaves are fighting white people who were never Nazis over a confederate statue erected by Democrats because Democrats can’t stand their own history anymore.. yet somehow it’s Trump’s fault.” — Jeff Laffite Jones

Charlottesville is in the review mirror, some families are in preparations for funerals, others are tending to wounds, others are throwing gas on a fire that has burnt itself out.
Charlottesville is what happens when you have a country divided along ideological lines. There is a right and a wrong. If you are not sure what the distinction is then you shouldn’t be there in the first place.
The left has shown their colors, we know what/who they are.
The Alt-right is being aligned with white supremacist by the media and liberal politicians which is not what/who we are.
The left and the media are leveraging the violence in Charlottesville for their benefit, it doesn’t help when our side is being broadcast on local and national news coverage with people waving Nazi flags.
As far as I am concerned the Alt-Right needs to stop doing rally’s. The Antifa thugs need an enemy, if the right isn’t there, they will attack whatever symbols of capitalism they can find, usually smashing business windows and burning flags. If that is all the media has to cover, then our side wins without throwing a punch. Be smarter than the useful idiots, let them hang themselves.

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” ― Sun Tzu,
The indoctrination of the children has come full circle, they are now in positions of power, just ask James Damore the fired free thinker at Google.
James Damore is an FIDE chess master who studied at Princeton, MIT and Harvard. He had been working as a software engineer at Google for four years.
Danielle Brown is the new Vice President of Diversity at Google. She has an MBA from the University of Michigan and campaigned for Hillary.
She had been working at Google for a few weeks.

I used to use Google, no more. I don’t have a Facebook page, don’t need or want one. I don’t have a twitter feed, getting in a pissing contest with someone at 140 characters seems silly and futile.
It was a good ride Google, buh bye.
“James Damore is what most people think of when they imagine a Google employee. A brilliant original thinker with interests spread across the scientific and technological spectrum. But Danielle Brown is what Google actually is: a Hillary Clinton supporter who handled diversity at Intel and Google.
Google is a search engine monopoly that makes its money from search ads. It began with a revolutionary idea from young engineers much like Damore. Then the engineers became billionaires. And the company that began in a garage hired a Vice President of Diversity to get rid of the brilliant young engineers.
The idea that made Google some twenty years ago was PageRank. It was ahead of its time in utilizing social technology to rate the relevance of a page. The idea has since been cannibalized as Google’s search algorithm favors its own products. And increasingly it also favors its own political views.
As the company swings left, it isn’t interested in the “wisdom of crowds”, only in its own agenda.” Keep reading…

The saber rattling is getting intense with North Korea, stories coming out of the media about nuke capabilities seem to be painting Trump into a corner and forcing him to take action. I have no doubt that our military capability is vastly superior to the Norks, that being said we are currently at war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and whatever ghost maneuvers our special forces are involved in. Toss in our tense relationship with Iran, China, and Russia and we are stretched pretty thin.
As an American, nothing would please me more than bringing hell fire down on the chubby little dictator just to shut him up. Putting out threats and shabby videos showing North Korea blowing up America is rude, (of course Iran has been doing it for decades). He seems like a spoiled child who doesn’t like being scolded and can’t play with the other kids because….well…..nobody likes him. He needs to have his toys taken away.
But we can’t fight everyone.
If I had to pick one I would get the hell out of Afghanistan. To this day I don’t know what we have gained but I have a good idea of what we have lost. The war on terror has been a perpetual war, the first American attack in Afghanistan happened October 7, 2001, you can do the math but fighting in one country for almost 16 years seems like a long time. We had the Gulf War in 1990-91 but that was a major ass kickin’ when Bush the Elder was running the show, unfortunately W. thought it a good idea to head back in 2003 and finish what his old man had started, been there ever since. Thanks to Obama and his troop withdrawal from Iraq we are now in Syria. Sad.
I don’t know what the current state of political and tribal factions are in Afghanistan, but I don’t think that we are on the cusp of bringing the Taliban to it’s knees. It’s time to let the chips fall where they may, we have given away billions of dollars to corrupt politicians and tribal leaders and it seems nothing has changed. I fear the blood and treasure was wasted in a senseless war that America has nothing to show for.
It’s past time to leave Afghanistan, I wouldn’t let any grass grow under our feet getting out of Iraq and Syria also but I understand the urgency in eliminating ISIS. I don’t know that Afghanistan would become a haven for terrorists or not, and frankly at this point, I don’t care.
“Every recent war has been counterproductive at best. At worst, they have been meat-grinders for our bravest young men.
If we’re ever attacked, we should be prepared to unload our full arsenal. But it’s not our job to create functioning democracies in primitive rape-based societies around the globe.
Apart from an attack on U.S. soil by a foreign country, we are going to live our lives, go to work, celebrate the Fourth of July, and never bother learning the difference in Sunni and Shia Arabs. Once a decade, when we fleetingly remember Yemen or Saudi Arabia, we will hope they’re doing well, then get back to our lives — surrounded by a wall and living in a constitutional democracy, where our greatest young men aren’t continually sacrificed in pointless wars.”by jeffli6 with 6 comments
