    The “It goes without saying” thread can be an open thread for now if anyone is uncomfortable using this one for general discussion.

    Thank you for putting this thread up, young lady!

    Those who sought to topple us then, are the same today…just wearing different (JV) jerseys.

    At least on 9/11/2001 our C-in-C wasn’t rooting for the terrorists.

    US Treasury declares Boston Marathon bombings not an act of terrorism — — You can’t fight an enemy if you can’t identify them.

    drdog, by Obama Regime definition, NO mayhem/murder/destruction perpetrated by Muslims can EVER be “terrorism”.

    Like saying:
    Massive amounts of snow cascading down a hillside will no longer be call an ‘Avalanche’

    When you’re buried under two million cubic feet of snow it’s comforting to know you did NOT die in an “Avalanche”

    As much as I don’t like lawyers I would love to see an enterprising one file a class action criminal case against against Boston PD. Rationale: Since Treasury has declared the Boston bombing not a terrorist act, then all those ‘searches’ conducted by Boston PD were really home invasions. As a consequence the 4th and possibly the 3rd Amendment violations occurred. That happened to hundreds of people, and its on tape. Start the filing at $5Bn, federal court.

    Course I won’t hold my breath.

    Nothing new here:

    Oh yeah Turkey’s really behind you Obama:

    Drip Snow Drip Den Drip:
    The U.S. government threatened to fine Yahoo $250,000 a day in 2008 if it failed to comply with a broad demand to hand over user data that the company believed was unconstitutional, according to court documents unsealed Thursday that illuminate how federal officials forced American tech companies to participate in the NSA’s controversial PRISM program.

    The documents, roughly 1,500 pages worth, outline a secret and ultimately unsuccessful legal battle by Yahoo to resist the government’s demands. The company’s loss required Yahoo to become one of the first companies to begin providing information to PRISM, a program that gave the National Security Agency extensive access to records of online communications by users of Yahoo and other U.S.-based technology firms.

    “The released documents underscore how we had to fight every step of the way to challenge the U.S. Government’s surveillance efforts,” said company General Counsel Ron Bell in a Tumblr post published Thursday afternoon.

    Anyway way none of these things are remotely important today, what is critical to the nation today is we discuss NFL players who have hit their girlfriends who go on to marry them ad nauseam. 🙄 /s

    IP, in re. #15…would even Lord Obama go that far?

    He could collapse Social Security instantly…of course, he’d like that

    Issuing them soc sec cards IS part of the plan. Once issued, wouldn’t that qualify them for the disability provisions thereof?

    “The politics of our nation since 9/11 have been the politics of fear.

    Because of fear that one of us is a terrorist, we’ve allowed our intelligence services to listen into our private conversations; because of fear of terrorists from abroad, we have killed innocent people in foreign nations (supposedly to protect ourselves here); because of fear that our planes will get blown up, we let government agents put their hands on our children’s crotches and look at our naked bodies, and because of fear that the economy will implode, we’ve given trillions of dollars to organizations that have brought us to that point.

    None of it feels very brave or free. None of it feels very American.

    Nations confident of their strength don’t seek fights. The most powerful nations win without firing a shot. Nations confident of their security and the ability of their agents to maintain it don’t compromise the dignity or legal rights of its citizens.”

    “Minimizing risk at reasonable cost is the action of a sensible man or nation. Trying to eliminate all risk at any cost — not only financial, but also of principle — is the action of a man or nation that has become obsessive, compulsive, scared, or all three.”

    “The use of force — whether legal or military — always reveals a failure of some other, preferable means.

    If our sons and daughters in uniform are truly fighting for American freedoms, then those freedoms must all still exist at home uncompromised: inasmuch as we give them up at home, those men and women cannot be fighting to protect them, just as a matter of simple logic.

    Those of us who are fortunate enough to stay at home while our soldiers fight abroad, demean their service if we are too lazy not to speak out in opposition when our leaders compromise our Constitutional rights (always for our own good).

    And if, worse, we support those compromises out of our own fear, then we meet our soldiers’ bravery with our own cowardice.”

    WEC, sometimes we need to fight to SURVIVE.

    Yes, our freedoms are being eroded and erased at home…and we WILL need to fight here as well. But when a determined enemy (ISIS and all of Radical Islam) is vowing to slit your throat there is NO other means than fighting!

    At home and abroad the fight is coming…or already here.

    good article, drdog…I’ll comment on it in my next, well, comment 🙂
    But first a bit of hilarity from ‘Rasmussen Reports’. ANY doubt that the people who bought out Scott Rasmussen just to have an avenue to prop up Obama is dispelled by this image from RCP today. As Sesame Street sings: “One of these things is NOT like the other!”

    in re. the article from #25 above (Spengler)…

    Spengler, et al, MAY be right…ISIS may indeed stand out in the middle of the desert and dare us to kill them. Hmmm… Then again, if they simply fully infest the towns and cities they control, mingling fully with the inhabitants, then rooting them out via air power alone becomes impossible for the U.S. …civilian casualties become inevitable and horrific. I believe ISIS is already doing exactly that.

    Further… ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, alQueda, Boka Whatever, et al, are ALL simply the tip of the Islamic spear. “Someone” will unite them…maybe Iran (as the article suggests). IF the army currently in the field (ISIS) does manage to topple Syria and Iraq…and then Afghanistan…and cobble them together into a rough Caliphate, then Iran would simply step up and take ownership.

    Will all this happen? Dunno. But the U.S. is ill positioned to do anything about it.

    IP…you are so right!

    The Democrats have nurtured their Plantations (aka: “inner Cities”) for decades…the “slaves” will never revolt.

  31. 2014 September 12 7:04 am

    Even after years of slavery under the pharaoh, the Israelites still had second thoughts about their “freedom”. Some wanted to go back to their handful of grain, and mud pits.

    Exodus 16:3

    Exactly, IP. The Democrats know the lesson of Exodus 16:3 so very well:

    And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

    If you live in one of the Inner-City Plantations, you must be willing to leave behind a plethora of government handouts, low-cost or free housing, low-cost or free transportation, etc in order to venture forth into the “wilderness” of self dependence.

    Some do, but most simply exchange their freedom for survival…and bring forth generation after generation of Democrat voters and On-Demand mobs.

    And yet, to point out to the people living in those “plantations” that their REAL Slave-Owners are those who pretend to “help” them is, of course, RACIST!!!!

  33. 2014 September 12 7:42 am

    Being a conservative is prima facie evidence of being a racist. It goes with the territory.

    Mullet’s link to the employment article should not have been a surprise, especially to Dims. Its a race friction of their own making. Course the Dims will treat this as a feature. Instead of having one race on the plantation, they will have two. But even that might not workout.
