Obama’s Wisdom About the Middle East
Thursday, October 30th, 2014 | Author:

This sums it up nicely:

After the American misreading of the Arab spring, the infamous Obama red-line in Syria, U.S. abandonment of Iraq, the chaos in Libya and the American failure to understand, let along contain, Islamic terrorism, this administration is not seen by Jerusalem as a font of wisdom.

I-70 Construction Through Northwest Dayton
Sunday, October 26th, 2014 | Author:

A 15-mile bicycle ride along closed roads and bike-ways around Northwest Dayton provides some insights into the I-70 highway construction. I used the Sunday ride as an opportunity to walk around the construction areas and snap some photos of the bridges undergoing the widening.

The first three photos show the widening of the bridge pilings over the Stillwater River. This type of work is likely a little more challenging since the construction crews have to deal with bridge supports sunk into the soft riverbed. Meanwhile, the second set of photos shows the bridge widening over Frederick Road.

Affirmative Action Because of Intelligence Inequality

Interesting observation about the need for lax voter ID laws:

Charles Stewart, a political scientist was retained by the Justice Department to testify against voter identification laws and other election integrity measures. His testimony argued that ending same day voter registration and requiring voters to vote in the precinct where they live constitutes racial discrimination.

When asked if terminating the ability to register to vote on the day that someone casts a ballot impacts blacks disproportionately, Stewart testified in court that it did. Stewart:

“It’s also the case that — well, yes, so it would, empirically more likely affect African Americans. Also, understanding within political science, that people who register to vote the closer and closer one gets to Election Day tend to be less sophisticated voters, tend to be less educated voters, tend to be voters who are less attuned to public affairs. That also tells me from the literature of political science that there are likely to be people who will end up not registering and not voting. People who correspond to those factors tend to be African Americans, and, therefore, that’s another vehicle through which African Americans would be disproportionately affected by this law.”

Blacks tend to be less sophisticated, less educated, and lower information voters, according to a taxpayer-funded Justice Department expert. Experts for the Voting Section of the United States routinely make tens of thousands of dollars for this sort of expert testimony, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Rewarding Terrorism

It’s really pretty simple.  Hamas wants to kill the Jews and create a Caliphate in the land of Israel…  In the meantime the Euros and the Obama/Kerry idiots reward Hamas with billions of dollars to ‘rebuild’.

Is the West Already at War with Islam?
Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 | Author:

Some interesting viewpoints about the realty of relationships with the Moslem nations:

We have no Churchill, and we have no FDR; we have not yet reached the point where we are willing to acknowledge that we are already at war, fighting for the future of civilization as we know it. Will the tide turn? Will we awaken before it is too late? It is too early to know…

We cannot defeat an enemy we do not admit exists. And most of us – though thankfully not all – still want to pretend that this is a war against ISIS or jihadists, not a global attack on our world that we must eradicate.
