12/29/14 – U.S., NATO MARK END OF MISSION TO AFGHANISTAN
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/AS_AFGHANISTAN?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2014-12-28-07-59-27

COMMENTS: Only the U.S. would state that something was over, but still leave soldiers there, approximately 13,500. That, to me, is a lot of soldiers. The point is that these soldiers will not accomplish anything being there with these people and this country. Nothing has been accomplished with the full force of the military and the U.S. Government, what is a token force, left there as a “symbolic gesture, going to do other than be there to be killed, kidnapped, or make a mistake of which the terrorist maggots will twist to recruit more maggots. We need to leave completely, totally and without any lies to the contrary. If these people kill each other, then they are going to do it either way. WE ARE NOT HELPING IN ANY WAY! I don’t have to say a word or prove a thing, the facts are the facts when you get away from the government lies and spin doctoring on what they SAY has been accomplished. Without our continued monetary support the country goes right back to the third world crap hole it started out as. As long as the religious angle is allowed to stay in their government and society this will be a third world unpredictable black hole of money, lives, logic, reason, humanity, any and all things America.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/brawl-mall-teens-injured-multiple-fights-n275431

12/29/14 – MARIJUANA USE INCREASES IN COLORADO, ACCORDING TO NEW FEDERAL SURVEY
http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_27212493/marijuana-use-increases-colorado-according-new-federal-survey

COMMENTS: This is something to be proud of for sure. I am positive these peoples work-product is way up there, and the work they do accomplish is accurate and of quality. I would be willing to bet that what these people do is grow, sell, push the use of more illegal marijuana. I wonder how many of them live off of the government also. Maybe I am wrong, but I doubt it. It is the way of the criminal to take advantage of any and all weaknesses. Instead of looking to improve society as a whole, they are looking for the shortcut. They ARE criminals, because marijuana IS against the law Federally. Just because Obama and Holder have NO balls to enforce the law does not make it legal. The gutless following the lazy criminals. It is just sad, pathetic and predictable.

ON THE U.S. CONGRESS DOING ANYTHING INTELLIGENT,…NOT!

12/29/14 – CONGREESS LIKELY TO MAKE KEY DECISIONS ON DRONES
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_DRONES_CONGRESS?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2014-12-28-07-08-01

COMMENTS: I will step out on a limb here and say that private citizens will be restricted on using toy choppers, but Amazon and other large donation corporations will be allowed to fly as many of these trailer park toys where ever they want. Amazon and their pipe dream of flying products where ever to deliver them by drones is dangerous, ridiculous and a huge propaganda scam. There is NO oversight that will ever be able to cover all of the possibilities these toys have to cause problems/danger in society. Anyone who says different should step forward and explain, but they won’t, because it is impossible. Once again, money and donations will lead Congress by the noses. There is nothing exciting or new about this technology. It is simply adults acting like kids, and kids acting like adults.

ON THE KURDS, ISIS, AND TRUSTING THE U.S.,…

12/29/14 – THE FIGHT OF THEIR LIVES
http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/09/29/fight-lives

COMMENTS: This is an older article, September 29, 2014, but very well written. I have dealt with many of the parties mentioned in the article through work. The only thing I can say to the Kurdish people is “do what you can do and let the Fates work the rest out”. Every situation can look hopeless and then through some twist of fate, change 180 degrees to your benefit. The main point is to keep fighting for what you want, what you deserve, and what you need to survive. Sometime this means dealing with people who cannot be trusted, like the leaders in Baghdad and Washington. One example being called to fight ISIS when the pathetic Iraqi “army” turned and ran like the gutless chickens they are. This is the same “army” that American Generals claimed were ready to fight. WHAT A SAD JOKE! I have no doubt that once the Kurds clean out the ISIS vomit, Washington and Baghdad will jump back in and backstab the Kurds. Time will tell, but I will write my answer on a piece of paper and seal it to be opened in a year.

12/29/14 – WHAT WE LEFT BEHIND, AN INCREASINGLY AUTHORITARIAN LEADER, A RETURN OF SECTARIAN VIOLENCE, AND A NATION WORRIED FOR ITS FUTURE
http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/04/28/what-we-left-behind

COMMENTS: This is the face of a man who had it given to him and he has wasted it. Maliki is the perfect example of how to blow trillions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of lives, the backing of the most powerful country in the world, and still be simple of mind, character, and honor. Iraq is no better, only worse than it was when the first U.S. soldier arrived there. If it wasn’t for the Kurds, Iraq would be part of the ISIS Caliphate right now.
