The universe and human stupidity, and I am uncertain about the former."

A few weeks ago, we apparently reached a new high in the latter.

(Or, how NOT to embarrass a sitting president.)

I am seriously beginning the question the rationale for America maintaining the army it does. What is the point of this? And here we see troops going into a country that does not want us, that hates us for good reasons... I'm predicting Mogadishu all over again. Sad that some Americans must give all in the name of sensible foreign policy, but there you go.

"American who risked his life to save Libya"... I remember hearing about an American who fought for real on Libyan battlefields on his spring break. Hearing the drivel from the MSM defending this front man for Big Oil is disgusting.

We're hearing now that the embassy in Yemen has also been attacked, and ransacked.

If this is true, it's a sign that America's empire is at death's door!
