This week’s lesson in gun safety (#25)

lessons in gun safety

For this week’s lesson in how obviously safe guns are and how clearly responsible gun owners can be we travel to Sarasota County, Florida. Where we defer to firearms safety officer Asa Masotti:

Sarasota County Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the Walgreens at 3601 Bee Ridge Road just past midnight June 9 following reports of a man being shot in the parking lot.

Psst, dude, wanna buy a gun? This is why Walgreens was put on God’s green Earth.

After questioning, deputies learned Masotti had accidentally shot a man he did not know while trying to sell him a handgun.

What kinda gun is it, maaan? Can it cure a cold? That’s why I parked here.

After asking the man if he was interested in buying a gun, Masotti produced a silver 9mm handgun that accidentally fired as he was pulling it out, the bullet hitting the victim in the thigh.

I think it’s a…*bang*. It looks like a Remington War Wound. It could be a Colt 45 Seconds Then You Bleed Out. Anyway the mysterious thing sure works good – too good, I think – and pardon me but now I really have to go. Welcome to a typical day here in America. It’s all the predictable result, I believe, of allowing civilians to buy Zicam at a discount.

When a friend of Masotti’s arrived soon after, witnesses say Masotti tried to give him the gun and told him to get rid of it out of fear of going to prison for shooting someone. The friend instead assisted the man who was shot, making sure 911 was called and remained on scene.

What sort of friend is that? He won’t take the fall for the shooting, and he’s trying to keep the eyewitness alive. Stevie Wonder and Dionne Warwick will not be singing your praises any time soon, mister helpful.

The victim, 27-year old Benjamin Smith, suffered a shattered femur and was flown to Blake Medical Center, undergoing surgery soon after. Smith was interviewed in the Blake ER and said Masotti was extremely remorseful, apologetic and scared.

Scared? I wonder why.

Masotti, who has five prior arrests for Burglary, Aggravated Battery and Domestic Violence, was taken into custody June 18th and charged with Improper Exhibition of a Dangerous Weapon.

I also wonder if poor Ben is aware of all the raps for armed robbery he dodged when the gun went off. Dodging bullets, of course, is a trickier matter. Maybe it’s a bad idea to buy a gun from a guy lurking in a Walgreens parking lot? It’s always a bad idea to be shot, by a weapon, point blank. From this we once again conclude: The more guns you have, the safer your thigh bone is.

I see Fred Kagan has sidled out of his spiderhole

blood reign o'er thee

They keep coming, with their new push toward Baghdad. And I’ve only got so much time outside of working and sleeping. It’s like playing a game of whack-a-mole, only substituting the balding heads of the former Masters of the Universe.

That alternative is to act boldly and decisively to help stop the advance of the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)—without empowering Iran…This would mean aiming at the expulsion of foreign fighters, both al Qaeda terrorists and Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah regular and special forces, from Iraq.

This would require a willingness to send American forces back to Iraq. It would mean not merely conducting U.S. air strikes, but also accompanying those strikes with special operators, and perhaps regular U.S. military units, on the ground.

Fred Kagan wants full-blown War in Iraq number three: This Time We’re Serious. Just who is this lunatic?

You don’t remember? He was one of the most trusted think-tankers in George W. Bush’s foreign policy orbit. He was a founder of the Neo-Con fantasy cabal Project for the New American Century. All they wanted to do was re-shape the entire planet to suit our superpower whimsies. The PNAC heavies were like the writing staff for Imperial Eye for the Commander Guy.

In its “Preface”, in highlighted boxes, Rebuilding America’s Defenses states that it aims to:

ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for the U.S. military:

• defend the American homeland;
• fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
• perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions;
• transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs”;

In case you were skimming, PNAC’s second goal there for the American military was ‘fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars.’ That’s everything you need to know about Fred Kagan, even today.

Now you’re up to date, so you won’t be surprised to read this:

ISIS will likely be able to disrupt the flow of oil from northern Iraq into Turkey with the gains it has already made – and has demonstrated its ability to conduct large-scale and well-coordinated attacks into southern Iraq, potentially threatening the oil fields there.

And so, the current impending defeat is much worse than the one we accepted so blithely in 1975.

Fred Kagan himself would never have gone to war in Vietnam – heavens! – because there were no economic interests in play. What do you think he is, an animal? And tell me, who loves above all else the politics of mutual respect, not to mention Chinese Communism? [Fred: Me! I do!]

This war won’t end with U.S. personnel escaping from the embassy roof (although that might happen as well). There is, in fact, no end in sight for this war now, especially if we allow Iraq to go down. A policy of retreat and abandonment remains as it has always been the fastest road to endless war.

And there you have the perfect Kagan send-off. You know what the root cause of infinity war is? It’s the lack of war. Better invade on all sides, just to be safe.

June of 2014 – those were the days my friend…

iraq

Siberian saluki shit on a speckendick shingle, we’ve got John McCain again telling us to Do The Right Thing in Iraq. As if it mattered to us anymore in the least. As if it mattered to sane Americans back then. It doesn’t matter.

Now we’ve got war architect Paul Wolfowitz begging us to invade another country.

When Meet The Press host David Gregory asked the former Bush official for advice on how to mitigate the potential terrorist threat merging from ISIS, saying “what do you do then, as a policy matter, to stop this,” Wolfowitz responded that the Obama administration must convince the Middle East that the U.S. “is serious,” arguing, “I would do something in Syria.”

And then there’s Bill Kristol whining that we’re no longer dying over there.

“It’s a disaster made possibly by our ridiculous and total withdrawal from Iraq in 2011.” Kristol went on to suggest that the war in Iraq is not over: “President Obama said two days before election day, in 2012, Iraq is on the path of defeat, the war in Iraq is over. That was enough to get him re-elected. Iraq is on the path of defeat. Neither is true. It’s a disaster for our country.”

Golly. Only in right-wing world do the good times necessarily go on forever. And it’s all very serious, heady and seductive but I do feel like there’s a certain something missing. As if someone had been denied his rightful place at the butchers cotillion. Where’s our dear Tom Friedman?

“I think it was unquestionably worth doing Charlie, and I think that looking back that I now certainly feel I understand what the war was about … We needed to go over there basically uhm, and, uh, uhm take out a very big stick, right in the heart of that world and burst that bubble … And what they needed to see was American boys and girls going house to house from Basra to Baghdad uhm, and basically saying ‘Which part of this sentence don’t you understand? You don’t think we care about our open society, you think this bubble fantasy we’re going to just let it go? Well. Suck. On. This.’ Ok?“

The Times’ Mustache de Morte must have something timely and trenchant to say about the Iraq situation, don’t you think?

Having just returned from Iraq two weeks ago, my own thinking is guided by five principles, and the first is that, in Iraq today, my enemy’s enemy is my enemy.

Al Qaeda’s biggest enemy of course would be us, the United States of America. Carrying that forward, with our craniums fizzling with the finer points of Monsignor Professor’s man-Fried Mespopamic Math, we are urged to multiply all of the factors, and we are in addition begged to carry all of the vital integers, so that we are fully empowered to calculate, and then discover, that the only sane solution to the sticky situation would be, umm, of course, a self-inflicted airstrike. ALSO: People.

Other than the Kurds, we have no friends in this fight. Neither Sunni nor Shiite leaders spearheading the war in Iraq today share our values.

It wasn’t so long ago the Arabs needed to have Tom’s cock crammed down their throats. But now for whatever reason he’s not concerned any more that they’re woefully ignorant of Western sexual habits. Tom is now complaining that they haven’t yet become the sort of personal partners he can build a satisfactory life with. 100,000 funerals later they’re not exactly marriage material, and why they haven’t come around is a real mystery.

John McCain stinks like a bayonted cadaver

war

John McCain should go back to Arizona and disappear inside one of the many mansions he acquired through nuptials. Let him despair over Iraq’s disintegration there, inside a musty man-cave haunted by ESPN’s broadcast clowns. I can’t fathom the spell he’s cast upon the brilliant media but I know that when a person can’t add two and two together he’s no mathematician. It infuriates me that someone responsible for sending thousands of our friends and neighbors to die in a wrenching clusterfuck isn’t being basted in boiling tar and slapped with ostrich feathers.

“Do you believe that the people of Iraq, or at least a large number of them, will treat us as liberators?”

“Absolutely.”

No one in recent memory has been more cavalier.

“There is not a history of clashes that are violent between Sunnis and Shias, so I think they can probably get along.”

And no one, given the seriousness of the matter – annihilation – has been more eager to bolt toward hot cameras and microphones and weigh in on the side of human sacrifice.

“We’re going to win this victory. Tragically, we will lose American lives, be it will be brief. We’re gonna find out massive evidence of weapons of mass destruction.”

McCain refuses to contemplate he’s ever been wrong. This thought is not allowed. He is a cocksure agent of death.

Umm my director is asking me not to talk to you anymore

I doubt that

Creationist David Isaacs has been busy. Practicing his Think Fu.

He said during an episode of “Creation Today” that he had studied works by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, E.O. Wilson, and other “purveyors of evolutionary thought” and found himself in “a very, very dark place,” reported the Friendly Atheist blog.

Rommel, you magnificent bastard. I read your book.

“You have to start asking questions: Well, if evolution is true, and it’s just all about the male propagating their DNA, we had to ask hard questions, like, well, is rape wrong?” Isaacs said, as one of his hosts gasps.

What about “rain”? If that stuff is true I suppose it would be alright for me to piss on your leg. Hello. What’s that Newton? Try “gravity”? I take it for granted we should sit around and smack our heads with hammers. All day. No wonder Americans hate Science.

Goodbye Eric Cantor, my friend, everyone hated you

teabaggers

This is hugely entertaining. The sniveling backstabbing TRUE CONSERVATIVE proto-usurper of the Speaker of the House position, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, has been defeated in tonight’s Virginia primary – perhaps ending a once-promising (not to mention underhanded) career. The agent of change in this particular tragedy, tee-hee, would be…the surely-dead Tea Party. Pray marvel bystanders at The Irony oh my golly it is To Laugh:

In a stunning upset propelled by tea party activists, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) was defeated in Tuesday’s congressional primary, with insurgent David Brat delivering an unpredicted and devastating loss to the second most powerful Republican in the House who has widely been touted as a future speaker.

Cantor dreamed of replacing the Speaker and then moving his fellow House members appreciably to the right(!). To that end he frequently engaged in double-dealing and ex-parte gymnastics behind John Boehner’s back to make his job impossible, and to make him look like a feckless dolt.

But for all that clever scheming and maneuvering he couldn’t even beat an unknown with a grand total of $40,000 in his war chest, a fraction of Cantor’s well-connected $2 million. So his time is done. Here come the howler monkeys to tell you why…

“Eric Cantor’s loss tonight is an apocalyptic moment for the GOP establishment,” said L. Brent Bozell, chairman of ForAmerica, a conservative group that targeted Cantor throughout the primary. “The grassroots is in revolt and marching”…

Brat exposed discontent with Cantor in the solidly Republican, suburban Richmond 7th Congressional District by attacking the lawmaker on his votes to raise the debt ceiling and end the government shutdown, as well as his support for some immigration reforms.

Eric Cantor is a political cadaver tonight because he was certifiably insane only about 98% of the time. The second most trusted GOP leader in the House forced a government shutdown only a little while ago, which kicked up a firestorm of bad p.r., caused the Republicans terrible harm, and forced him to grab his fellow rebels and run back to D.C. before the party blew its brains out in a game of Russian roulette played out before the nation’s eyes. And that’s the reason why, among other notions as treasonous as NOT rifle-hunting immigrants like bubonic squirrels, that the Tea Party found him an easy target for Virginia’s Thorazine caucus: He was a liberal. So hang his carcass high in the Jefferson Davis Memorial Smokehouse, boys, and start sucking down some of that sweet sweet moonshine. Because the country will surely be whistlin’ Dixie a few months from now…

Will exhibits a deft touch with the victims of rape

*holes

George Will wants to talk about rape. The word ‘snide’ comes to mind.

Colleges and universities are being educated by Washington and are finding the experience excruciating. They are learning that when they say campus victimizations are ubiquitous (“micro-aggressions,” often not discernible to the untutored eye, are everywhere), and that when they make victimhood a coveted status that confers privileges, victims proliferate.

The privileges of going to a hospital, then later to trial? What an introductory paragraph. All of his arguments have to follow from here. But there’s no indication that rape is a horrific crime that needs to be taken seriously. There are only Will’s epic mockery and disparagement of victims.

And academia’s progressivism has rendered it intellectually defenseless now that progressivism’s achievement, the regulatory state, has decided it is academia’s turn to be broken to government’s saddle.

Catch that bit? Government be raping academia. Sometimes bad things happen, to you, but then there are crimes. THE INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH.’Two can play at this game’ George is telling you. Still think rape is serious, dude?

Consider the supposed campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. “sexual assault.”

Sexual assault is barely a thing in his world. It’s something somebody probably made up. So to be fair, to him, we need to set it aside as “sexual assault.” As if.

Now the Obama administration is riding to the rescue of “sexual assault” victims. It vows to excavate equities from the ambiguities of the hookup culture, this cocktail of hormones, alcohol and the faux sophistication of today’s prolonged adolescence of especially privileged young adults.

And look at his view of university students: confused, overwrought, oversexed, privileged, immature, and stupid. George can’t believe a woman exhibiting any of these traits could be assaulted. She’s too beneath his dignity to earn any sympathy.

Since he oozed his way over to Fox News Will has been less and less concerned with acting civilized and it really shows. This screed is no different from anything your drunken uncle would yell at Jerry Springer. George is just the oak panel version of white trash.

This is why you have to monitor right-wing wackos

domestic terrorism

Five days ago the Southern Poverty Law Center reported on Attorney General Holder’s effort to check home-grown terrorists.

After letting a special unit devoted to monitoring domestic terrorism fall dormant following the Al Qaeda attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced this week that it was reviving the group. The Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee will focus on extremists motivated by antigovernment and racial hatred, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement Tuesday.

They noted the reaction to the news by many conservatives.

One far-right website, run by documentarian Pat Dollard, headlined the news story: “Holder Mobilizes Group To Wage War On The White Man.”

Over at conspiracist pundit Alex Jones’ Infowars website, there was little doubt about Holder’s intentions: “In reality, Holder’s task force will undoubtedly focus on the Obama administration’s political enemies, mainly returning military veterans, conservatives and those who identify with the Tea Party. Such groups have been increasingly linked to terrorism by multiple federal agencies. … Given the documented history of the federal government’s involvement in facilitating terrorism, the administration will likely do whatever it can to create the necessary scenario to bolster its executive power.”

But once again…we have a mass shooting by right-wing terrorists. Two policemen were ambushed and a woman was killed in Las Vegas over the weekend.

Residents at an apartment complex where it appeared the two [suspects] lived together said they had a reputation for spouting racist, anti-government views, bragging about their gun collection and boasting that they’d spent time at Cliven Bundy’s ranch during a recent standoff there between armed militia members and federal government agents.

The duo also told people they planned to commit a mass shooting, said Brandon Moore, a resident of the complex.

“They were handing out white-power propaganda and were talking about doing the next Columbine,” Moore said.

These two told everybody they were going to go out and kill people, but nobody lifted a finger. Which is exactly why the government should be looking at them. They’re not just ‘Tea Partiers’ or ‘Patriots.’ They’re dangerous.

Residents who spoke about the assailants all mentioned the couple’s relationship with Bundy.

Oak Tree resident Sue Hale said the two told her they were in Bunkerville during the standoff, which occurred in April after federal authorities began conducting a roundup of Bundy’s cattle. Bundy had defied the government by grazing the cattle on public land without a permit.

I don’t give a damn about Republicans’ precious feelings.

Today in right-wing terrorism

domestic terrorism

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports:

Shooters in Metro ambush that left five dead spoke of white supremacy and a desire to kill police
Posted June 8, 2014 – 11:36am Updated June 9, 2014 – 12:01am

Two Las Vegas police officers were killed Sunday in what appears to be a politically motivated ambush in a pizza restaurant that spilled over to a nearby Wal-Mart, where the two shooters committed suicide after killing a woman in the store.

The shooters appear to be self-styled patriots.

Witnesses told police one of the shooters yelled “This is the start of a revolution” before shooting the officers. Gillespie later said he could not confirm that.

The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”

The flag is named for Christopher Gadsden a Revolutionary War general who designed it. It has recently come back in vogue as an adopted symbol of the American tea party movement.

The man recently attended rancher Cliven Bundy’s ongoing anti-government protest.

Brandon Monroe, 22, has lived in the complex for about two weeks. He said the man who lived in the apartment that was being searched often rambled about conspiracy theories. He often wore camouflage or dressed as Peter Pan to work as a Fremont Street Experience street performer…

“The man told Monroe he had been kicked off Cliven Bundy’s ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas while people from throughout the U.S. gathered there in protest of a Bureau of Land Management roundup of Bundy’s cattle.” Jessica Anderson, 27, said.

In right-wing world these two fellow travelers will somehow end up being ‘liberals.’ How? Why? Because Abraham Lincoln is the father of the Republican Party. No I don’t get it either…

Tucker Carlson is une bitch

muhammad ali should have me for a wang

Tucker Carlson – rowrr. GRRRR.

British TV host Bear Grylls opined at a recent luncheon for his new adventure reality show that manliness was in crisis because the modern man was relying on technology instead of “your spear, your brains, your resourcefulness, your courage.”

“I think this is real,” Carlson agreed on Tuesday’s edition of the Fox News show Out Numbered. “Part of it is somebody told boys when they were little, ‘Be sensitive, be thoughtful.’ And some of that’s fine, too much of it makes you pretty unattractive to women. And this is one of the reasons, because it suggests weakness…”

“Men, who on the second date, let their date pay for dinner, I’m sorry that’s disgusting,” he insisted.

Beat her with your spear. IT SHALL NOT RETRIEVE ITS BILLFOLD. Stomp! Furor! Pee!

By the way we’re all feelin’ pretty tired. Gassed. Really beat. Shattered. All in. I’m telling you we are Mr. Low Tee. Wet lettuce. I pity the fool who tries to wake me up.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Sunday argued that a Walmart truck driver who allegedly critically injured comedian Tracy Morgan in a car accident should not face jail time because falling asleep behind the wheel was not always reckless…

“I’m not trying to take anything away from the tragedy of this,” Carlson replied. “But 10 years in jail for falling asleep? It strikes me as very different from taking drugs, drinking. Has that ever happened? Has anybody ever actually gone to jail for falling asleep?”

Tigers go to sleep. Great White Sharks go to sleep. Godzilla goes to sleep every night. Since when do we put him in jail?

“…I mean sometimes people — and I’m not defending anyone here,” Carlson continued. “I’m really struck by the idea that someone who falls asleep — which is something that everybody does every day, not necessarily considered an act of recklessness — does it unintentionally, nods off is a criminal.”

YAAAWN. Fluff up my pet wolverine, woman. Lay it out on top of my Bad Boy sleep set, over in the day room (minefield). Oh YEAH. ZZZZZ.

Send in the Muslims don’t bother they’re here

muslin death charge

Jonah Goldberg weighs in on the Obama gut-punch that is Free Bowe Bergdahl. You read “Release the White House Hacks!” and you discover Jonah’s not bothered by the possibility that Sgt. Bergdahl abandoned his unit.

…we don’t know that he was a deserter yet. We only know that he was AWOL. Indeed, according to an earlier Pentagon report, we know he had a habit of wandering off base. That may make him a flake or an idiot, but it doesn’t prove he was a deserter.

While that’s nice to say – and accurate – it’s only a Jonah appetizer ‘fore the meal.

…it might be best to withhold judgment on a lot of aspects to this story.

Save perhaps one: The White House is run by clowns.

Goldberg thinks somebody else is a clown. HOLD YOUR TONGUES.

Actually, that’s not quite fair. Clowns are actually pretty professional. They go to school to do what they do.

WHOA change of direction. On the topic of clowns. How in the world does he do it?

That reminds me of one of my favorite scenes from The Simpsons. Sideshow Bob is talking to his brother Cecil through the plate glass of a jail visiting room…

Pulitzer Prize Nominee Jonah Goldberg

Sideshow Bob: You wanted to be Krusty’s sidekick since you were five. What about the buffoon lessons, the four years at clown college?

Cecil Terwilliger: I’ll thank you not to refer to Princeton that way.

Look, I’m not making an ideological point here.

Look at me! Mommy! He’s so adorable you just want to clout him with a mace. The soldier’s been returned to the U.S., and now he’s recuperating, and the White House is sick with clowns why?

In the old days, there was an unwritten rule of politics: Don’t put the president next to a guy who looks like he just emerged out of spider-hole with Mullah Omar.

Bergdahl’s dad sports one of those beards. Looks like a you-know-what. Thanks Obama.

…in the final version, Mrs. Bergdahl would be in a burqa and ululating while Mr. Bergdahl was shouting “Allahu Akbar!” and firing an AK-47 into the White House portico causing plaster to fall down.

Those people might be happy sleeping in a tent or riding on a camel or mixing up some dynamite but you can’t put them next to the president. Don’t you know? Haven’t you seen? They have beards and they make funny noises and they shoot guns.

Ralph Peters: The Worst Soldier Evah!

fuckin-a smart like as fuck

Out front of what can only be called a National Review impeachment drive, Buckley’s Billet features Ralph Peters on The Bergdahl Culture Clash. If you didn’t know better you’d think Ralph would rightly be referring to conservatives’ demands to leave an American soldier in the hands of the Taliban so that he can suffer and die. The military, and U.S. presidents, and pretty much everybody else don’t behave like that and hence there’s your title – but no. The effort to save Sgt. Bergdahl’s life is what’s actually out of step with our basic values.

Ralph isn’t just running around the bases here, he’s got the damning evidence. You know the Obama administration is living on another planet when NSA chief Susan Rice ho-hums something about Bergdahl serving his country honorably.

In one of the most tone-deaf statements in White House history (we’re making a lot of history here), the national-security adviser, on a Sunday talk show, described Bergdahl as having served “with honor and distinction.” Those serving in uniform and those of us who served previously were already stirred up, but that jaw-dropper drove us into jihad mode.

Ralph already took to Fox News in 2009 to tell the Taliban to save America the time and money and dispense with the soldier. Let that serve as a lesson to the National Security Advisor on how to behave during difficult times. Anyway after the Rice insult Ralph isn’t kidding around any more and now he’s angry. Maybe he’d like to murder Sgt. Bergdahl himself? The soldier is stateside now and Peters will find it an easier task to manage than it would have been back in 2009. Thanks Obama.

But pity Ms. Rice. Like the president she serves, she’s a victim of her class. Nobody in the inner circle of Team Obama has served in uniform. It shows.

If she’d been a blue-collar veteran (Ralph?) she’d have been furious before any official conclusions were drawn from an Army inquiry. She’d have stepped forward for this administration long ago and begged Bergdahl’s captors to kick his carcass into the weeds. I don’t see any reason why her employer, the Commander-in-Chief, would have any problems with that. If you’re going to piss somebody off it might as well be someone other than Fox News’ official mercenary of fury, a man who despises liberals with a passion.

To be honest I’m not sure Peters’ jihad on Bergdahl-Obama is all that warranted in spite of his claim that he’s the one who’s sane. It’s entirely possible partisan politics have now become involved. Consider this:

[Obama] has so little understanding of (or interest in) the values and traditions of our troops that he and his advisers really believed that those in uniform would erupt into public joy at the news of Bergdahl’s release..

They have no idea of how great a sin desertion in the face of the enemy is to those in our military. The only worse sin is to side actively with the enemy and kill your brothers in arms.

Grandstanding? Naah.

By trying to sell him as an American hero, you’ve turned a deserter already despised by soldiers in the know into quite possibly the most-hated individual soldier in the history of our military.

You don’t say! Ralph Peters, expert military analyst, Fox News Ambassador of the Warrior Sneer hasn’t yet heard of this guy:

Benedict Who
A very unpopular soldier. IIRC General Washington ordered a special operation to effect the dude’s immediate capture, but it failed. In a second effort, he dispatched the Marquis de La Fayette to find the man and hang him straight away. But Ralph Peters doesn’t know the first thing about him…

Team Obama and its base cannot comprehend the values still cherished by those young Americans “so dumb” they joined the Army instead of going to prep school and then to Harvard.

…because he’s too American to have gone to Susan Rice’s Montessori moot-fest and learned a little history. Which is too bad, because Arnold’s treason would have made a good lead-in for the post.
