The Corporatocracy, by Robert Gore

Not-so-naive liberals, professed conservatives, and apolitical opportunists work both sides of the street. The revolving door ensures that all concerned do well. Playing this game isn’t cheap, which serves as a barrier to entry to scrappy competitors who compete those old fashioned ways: innovation, hustle, and better products and services at lower prices.

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

cartoon-regulatory-octopus

The interests of Washington and large corporations have merged so completely they are now inseparable.

America’s large corporations and its government have merged. Or was it an acquisition? If the latter, who acquired whom? Unfortunately, the labels affixed to purely corporate combinations lose their analytical usefulness here. While the two retain their own distinct legal structures and managements, so to speak, such a close community of interest has evolved that it’s no longer possible to separate them or delineate their individual contours. Political labels are no help; the ones most often used have become hopelessly imprecise. The Wikipedia definition of “fascism” is over 8,000 words, with 43 notes and 16 references.

However, the conjoined blob is so big, rapacious, and intrusive that akin to Justice Potter Stewart’s famous non-definition of obscenity, everybody knows it when they see or otherwise come into contact with it. This article will use the term…

The aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush, currently in the Persian Gulf, is holding nothing back as F/A-18 Super Hornets deployed from the supercarrier blast Daesh targets in Iraq and Syria without pause.

“The precision strike operations being carried out by the Bush Carrier Strike Group in the eastern Mediterranean Sea continue to demonstrate the tremendous warfighting capability and flexibility of the U.S. Navy,” said Vice Admiral Christopher Grady, commander of the US Sixth Fleet. 

“By defeating violent extremists in Iraq and Syria, we are simultaneously supporting two separate geographic combatant commands. We remain committed to defeating Daesh, committed to our allies and partners, and committed to global security.”

The inauguration of US President Donald Trump has also marked an uptick in American military force deployed against Daesh. The USS Bush was deployed in February against the terrorist group, and in March the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit and 75th Ranger Regiment were deployed to provide artillery support to the coalition forces attempting to wrest the Syrian city of Raqqa from Daesh hands.

This is the USS Bush’s second deployment against Daesh as part of Operation Inherent Resolve. The first deployment came in 2014, and then, too, the carrier was known for being a launching platform for Super Hornets.

The Super Hornet and its cousin, the larger but slower Hornet, are the US Navy’s preferred fighter aircraft for carrier deployment. The Super Hornet is also a known favorite of pilots, who show appreciate its speed, maneuverability and armaments. 

The Super Hornet’s perhaps most famous fighting feat came in the early days of the Gulf War, when a pair of the F/A-18s needed o

Infringing the right to bear arms- You can’t carry here

The failed liberal wet dream gun free zones.

By Rob Morse. April 22nd, 2017

Your right to protect yourself shall not be infringed..well..except where it already is infringed. That is what my young liberal friend told me. Here is what he said.

I think we should pass a law to ban guns. That way we wouldn’t have any more violence and we could close the prisons. It’d be great.

You think so? We tried it before. It is called prohibition. It failed when we prohibited alcohol. It failed with prohibiting drugs. It is failing today with prohibiting guns.

But we need to do something. Maybe we should take it piece at a time. We don’t have to prohibit anything, we can just regulate all we want. Yeah, that’s it.
I know. Hospitals should be gun free zones. Surely you wouldn’t want sick people to get their hands…

BUILD THE WALL

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

The Democrats are bluffing.  The last thing they want is to do is go on the record that they would rather shut down the government than pay for a border wall.  The next to the last thing they want is to go on record with a vote against the wall.  They know that to do either of these things would bring them no votes just more people outraged over them continuing to choose illegal immigrants over citizens.

Have the fight.  Call the vote.  Don’t follow Ryan in funding Planned Parenthood while refusing to fund the wall.  Don’t throw us under the bus for political expediency.

Obamacare is still here.  China isn’t a currency manipulator.  NATO is all right.  Intervention in foreign wars and military confrontations seem to be the order of the day.  Hopefully we won’t be singing with the WHO, “The new boss is the same as the old…
