The Danger of Engaging in Perpetual War

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following link, which I originally posted to my own wall in August of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, along with commentary…

Our Greatest National Security Threat? Perpetual War:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/08/12/our-greatest-national-security-threat-perpetual-war

(William Astore) The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gainscontinue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and lash out. Having spent trillions of dollars on war with such sorry results, it’s a wonder that key figures in the U.S. military or officials in any other part of America’s colossal national security state and the military-industrial complex (“the Complex” for short) haven’t spoken out forcefully and critically about the disasters on their watch.

My Commentary: Not exactly rocket science, and yet, it still remains an ever-elusive concept to most, somehow…

Discussing the Continued War on Grammar

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “The War on Grammar Continues…“…

RaynCollege Writing Center Declares American Grammar A ‘Racist,’ ‘Unjust Language Structure’:

I call bullshit! And, I’ll prove it, too!

“Grammar is important! Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your Uncle jack off a horse.”

See?

Daniel Sv.: The sad thing is that trivializing the term “fascism” will make people apathetic to when real fascism occurs.

The War on Grammar Continues…

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

College Writing Center Declares American Grammar A ‘Racist,’ ‘Unjust Language Structure’:
http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/20/college-writing-center-declares-american-grammar-a-racist-unjust-language-structure/

(Rob Shimshock) An “antiracist” poster in a college writing center insists American grammar is “racist” and an “unjust language structure,” promising to prioritize rhetoric over “grammatical ‘correctness.’”

The poster, written by the director, staff, and tutors of the University of Washington, Tacoma’s Writing Center, states “racism is the normal condition of things,” declaring that it permeates rules, systems, expectations, in courses, school and society.

“Grammar is important! Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your Uncle jack off a horse.”

(note: I previously used the same meme to address another attempt to attack grammar as racist in my post, “Sorry, Chalabi, But Grammar is Important!“)

Because of EPA Lie, 9/11 First Responders Continue to Die

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

5 FDNY, NYPD First Responders Die From 9/11-Related Illnesses Within a Week:
http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/5-FDNY-NYPD-First-Responders-Die-From-911-Related-Illnesses-Within-1-Week-414126213.html

(Erica Byfield) Every time someone passes away, a part of me dies because I have the job of researching it and collecting data on these passing,” said John Feal, founder of the FealGood Foundation. “I have been to 159 wakes and funerals.”

Feal is the founder of the FealGood foundation, a nonprofit organization that assists first responders who have been injured in the line of duty. His group raised money for a massive granite memorial on Long Island. Each etched name represents a first responder who died from a 9/11-related illness.

My Commentary: Never forget… the EPA declared the air at Ground Zero to be “safe.”

In 2016, War Hawk, Obama, Beats His Previous Bombing Record

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Swan Song from a “Reluctant” Hawk:
https://www.cato.org/blog/swan-song-reluctant-hawk

(Gene Healy) President Obama will deliver his Farewell Address tonight to a capacity crowd in Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center. It’s the right venue for the speech, the president explained last week, because Chicago is “where my career in public service began.”

Indeed, it’s the city where, as a young state senator in 2002, Obama gave an antiwar rally speech railing against the “dumb,” “rash” rush to war in Iraq; and where, as a presidential candidate five years later, he promised to “turn the page on the imperial presidency” and usher in “a new dawn of peace.” And yet, 2008’s “peace candidate” will leave office as the first two-term president in American history to have been at war every day of his presidency, having dropped over 25,000 bombs on seven countries in 2016 alone.

My Commentary: Or, as his supporters say, “no scandals for eight years.” Pffttt! You can’t make this stuff up!

Perhaps, the war hawk should be awarded another Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts?

Oh, and Obama also prosecuted more whistle-blowers than all previous presidents, combined. Or, as he would call it, “the most transparent administration in history.”

Statists gonna State! Try voting harder, next time, voting cattle! That’ll *really* show the government who’s in charge!
