Back to BSing (Blog Stuff, that is)

My apologies for the lack of posting lo these many months; it's been a busy summer (which included a summer teaching gig - my hats off to all you teachers out there, it's one of the hardest jobs I've ever had...but also one of the most rewarding). But now I have time to get back to blogging - try to contain your excitement.

We'll start off with some quick hits on current events:

Barack Obama continues to threaten to unilaterally attack a US ally (and a nuclear-armed one at that). Hillary should just stand back and let this fool bury himself.

With the US military's surge in Iraq working, it's time for a political surge: "one that comes from all directions, both from within Iraq and from the international community".

Is Korean reunification possible? Sure it's possible - but not desired by either side. In the North the Workers' Party of Korea will never willingly give up their stranglehold on the DPRK, and the South fears a post-reunification influx of economic refugees from the North that would overwhelm public services, with staggering economic costs that would make the expensive East/West German reunification look like a picnic in comparison.

Russia has been violating international airspace, assassinating dissidents abroad, blackmailing weak neighbors....ah, makes me nostalgic for the old Cold War days.

"the old definition of a nanosecond was the gap between a New York traffic light changing to green and the first honk of a driver behind you. Today, the definition of a nanosecond is the gap between a Western terrorist incident and the press release of a Muslim lobby group warning of an impending outbreak of Islamophobia," the wit Mark Steyn wrote last year. Now the definition of a nanosecond needs to be updated again: the gap between the occurence of any natural or man-made disaster in America and the Democrats hysterically blaming President Bush for it.

Well, ya basta for now. It's good to be back BSing.

    It seems to me we can choose either: jaded, dishonest politicians who have been through the grind mill of Washington power plays, or idealistic, refreshingly honest, creative and (yes) perhaps naive politicians who actually still have something honest to offer this country.
