According to John Bolton and the Fox “news” anchorman, it is time for a coalition of the willing to begin air strikes and to put boots on the ground in Somalia to “take these people out”.
Bolton: Somali’s don’t have a fascist central government that can cull its own people therefore the US needs to fill that void.
I guess that would be the first time the U.S. intervened there, right?…
Someone should stick a rock climbing boot sideways up Bolton’s….
Off topic I know but I wondered if you had run across this revealing piece of Justice Thomas’ view of “rights”:
**”The event, on March 31, was devoted to the Bill of Rights, but Justice Thomas did not embrace the document, and he proposed a couple of alternatives.
â€œToday there is much focus on our rights,â€ Justice Thomas said. â€œIndeed, I think there is a proliferation of rights.â€
â€œI am often surprised by the virtual nobility that seems to be accorded those with grievances,â€ he said. â€œShouldnâ€™t there at least be equal time for our Bill of Obligations and our Bill of Responsibilities?â€
(well, no that would have been completely inimical to the Founders’ purposes in writing the Constitution. He seems to lack the most basic understanding of the foundations of American liberty.)
**He continued: â€œOr how can you not reminisce about a childhood where you began each day with the Pledge of Allegiance as little kids lined up in the schoolyard and then marched in two by two with a flag and a crucifix in each classroom?â€
(throw in a little sentiment for Fascism…)
** But to his credit, at least he’s not a theocrat, or so he says:
â€œThere are some cases that will drive you to your knees,â€ he added. â€œIn those moments you ask for strength and wisdom to have the right answer and the courage to stand up for it. Beyond that, it would be illegitimate, I think, and a violation of my oath to incorporate my religious beliefs into the decision-making process.â€
hey, bonkers. been there, done that, it didn’t turn out so good.
black hawk something or another.
