Despite the arrogance, hubris, and lying (obviously – its election season!), we have never seen a cycle that has be more absent in terms of policy details worthy of analysis. Outrageous claims about job creation, making America strong, and so forth are issued, but there is no substance. We have tried on numerous occasions to find enough specifics to even perform cursory analysis and it is just not there. It is very reminiscent of Nancy Pelosi telling America in 2010 that if they wanted to read the healthcare bill they had to pass it first. This is what passes for economic jurisprudence in the Republic the founders gave us all those years ago.
Rest easy good friends, this is not an article about the election. Andy said he’d rather watch goat races in Antarctica and frankly we think many people might be inclined to join us rather than hear another word about the election. We have long stated that this country will not rise from the ashes by the presence of a single person at the top, but rather from the millions below. That’s where the power is.
There are two very relevant topics floating around this week. We’re going to try to give an update on each of them.
Syria – We Told You Russia Wouldn’t Give Her Up
Included in this update are going to be excerpts from Andy’s 2013 Quarterly newsletter. At the end of the article will be a link to the entire article. The title of the article is “The Middle East Conundrum – Why We Fight”. Three years and change later, the Russians are dug in, moving missile systems, warships and the like to protect this strategic area. The Americans, of course, are doing the same thing. The ‘bad guys’ in this case are ISIS. Everyone wants rid of ISIS. Saying that, you MUST watch this clip. It is a short admission of how we do things here. Notice the justification that is given. Sounds rational. To be fair, here is another clip of a politician of the opposite stripe saying the same thing about funding and arming ISIS. Just so you see what the deal is here regarding Syria and WHO is fighting WHO.
