Couldn’t happen to a more worthless Attorney General.  That’s all I am going to say about that.

http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2014/04/24/boehner-mocks-colleagues-immigration-reform/8101699/

Boehner just doesn’t get it.  Instead of making the tough choices as he states and finding a way to deport the majority of FELONS known as ILLEGALS, he is more into making American citizens suffer for the POLITICIANS gutless inaction.  Americans are supposed to stand by while their laws are broken, their children are murdered, their lives are changed for the worse because the GUTLESS REPUBLICANS and DEMOCRATS are too YELLOW to enforce the laws of this country.  Boehner save your rhetoric, you are now a co-conspirator in another of the great frauds being pushed on American citizens.

http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/DC-Decoder/Decoder-Buzz/2014/0424/Did-Hillary-Clinton-accomplish-anything-as-secretary-of-State-video

What did Clinton accomplish as Secretary of State, she burned up a lot of jet fuel jetting around the world on America’s dime.  She cost the life of our Ambassador in Libya.  That’s all I can state.  The sad thing is I read six newspapers a day, countless internet articles, fifteen to twenty magazines on government, politics, intelligence, security, psychology, war, business, etc. etc., and I cannot give you anything else on any accomplishments of H. Clinton.

Good chance this will become reality.  There aren’t any guarantees here, and the percentages of finding the plane or materials from it diminish every second, every minute, every hour, etc.  So sad!, so ridiculous.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/24/opinion/summers-georgia-gun-law/index.html?hpt=hp_bn7

Keep the liberal gun laws coming.  The more the better.

http://www.nbcnews.com/business/consumer/e-cig-makers-say-proposed-fda-regs-should-keep-sales-n88936

The HYPOCRISY shown here by the Food and Drug Association is monolithic in proportion.  They are worrying about candy cigarettes, cigars and other while millions are smoking ILLEGAL marijuana across the country with the governments backing.  This is beyond understanding other than it is another of the Obama administrations gutless actions that make absolutely NO sense.  Marijuana is more harmful, more dangerous, more problematic for States in the long run.  The health difficulties brought on by smoking marijuana will cost billions and billions one the next few years.  I am once again SPEECHLESS!

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/25/world/asia/south-korea-ship-sinking/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

What a disgrace!  A waste of lives.

http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/24/world/africa/nigeria-kidnapping-answers/index.html?hpt=hp_t2

BOKO HARAM, the true face of mongrel dogs left to run wild.  This group is beyond words in the sense of outright illiteracy.  It leaves me speechless that there are still people in the world that believe the crap that they do about women, and what this group does to defile them.  Using their religion to do it only makes them more low life.  Give me a break.

BOOK OF THE WEEK:

ART OF WAR, by Niccolo Machiavelli

However at the time he was writing, firearms, both technologically and tactically, were in their infancy and the rushing of enemy missile armed troops, of artillery even, between salvos, by a charge of pikes and sword and shield men would have been a viable tactic. In addition Machiavelli was not writing in a vacuum; Art of War was written as a practical proposition to the rulers of Florenceas an alternative to the unreliable condottieri mercenaries upon which all the Italian city states were reliant. A standing army of the prosperous and pampered citizens that would have formed the cavalry would have been little better. Machiavelli therefore “talks up” the advantages of a militia of those arms that Florence could realistically muster and equip from her own resources.

However, his basic notion of emulating Roman practices was slowly and pragmatically adapted by many later rulers and commanders, most notably Maurice of Nassau.[4] and Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden.[4] They would lay the foundations for the system of Linear Tactics which would dominate the warfare of Europe and the world until after the Napoleonic Wars.

While Machiavelli’s influence as a military theorist is often given a backseat to his writings as a political philosopher, that he considered Dell’arte della guerra to be his most important work is clear from his discussions of the military science and soldiery in other works. For example, in The Prince he declares that “a prince should have no other object, no any other thought, nor take anything as his art but that of war and its orders and discipline; for that is the only art which is of concern to one who commands.”[5]

In the course of the sixteenth century twenty-one editions appeared and it was translated into French, English, German, and Latin.Montaigne named Machiavelli next to Caesar, Polybius, and Commynes as an authority on military affairs. Although in the seventeenth century changing military methods brought other writers to the fore, Machiavelli was still frequently quoted. In the eighteenth century, the Marshal de Saxe leaned heavily on him when he composed his Reveries upon the Art of War (1757), andAlgarotti—though without much basis—saw in Machiavelli the master who has taught Frederick the Great the tactics by which he astounded Europe. Like most people concerned with military matters, Jefferson had Machiavelli’s Art of War in his library, and when the War of 1812 increased American interest in problems of war, The Art of War was brought out in a special American edition.”[6]

This continued interest in Machiavelli as a military thinker was not only caused by the fame of his name; some of the recommendations made in the Art of War—those on training, discipline, and classification, for instance—gained increasing practical importance in early modern Europe when armies came to be composed of professionals coming from the most different social strata. This does not mean that the progress of military art in the sixteenth century—in drilling, in dividing an army into distinct units, in planning and organizing campaigns-was due to the influence of Machiavelli. Instead, the military innovators of the time were pleased to find a work in which aspects of their practice were explained and justified. Moreover, in the sixteenth century, with its wide knowledge of ancient literature and its deep respect for classical wisdom, it was commonly held that the Romans owed their military triumphs to their emphasis on discipline and training. Machiavelli’s attempt to present Roman military organization as the model for the armies of his time was therefore not regarded as extravagant. At the end of the sixteenth century, for instance, Justus Lipsius, in his influential writings on military affairs, also treated the Roman military order as a permanently valid model.
