Dems Say Intervening Is Cool…Now That Obama Wants It

Many democrats think since Obama said that we need to stop the chemical weapon use in Syria, a limited attack is fine. “No boots
on the ground, this will be a preemptive strike only; this will not be another, Iraq.” No he’s right, it will be a new conflict in Syria. And
the truth is this; the President does not know what will or could happen if we go in there. The Mideast has been a bed of snakes. They always war between themselves and have done so for hundreds of years despite interventions by various countries.

Where was Obama when over a 100,000 innocents were killed with guns; months ago he declined to do something about it. But now that 1000 to
1500 people have been killed with chemical weapons the Dem’s have all of a sudden gotten a conscience.  John Kerry says, “Let me be clear, the indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders, by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity.”

But if you want to shoot, rape and maim the women, children and bystanders, well that is okay and we will not interfere. In effect what he would be doing is siding with Al-Qaeda and most Americans would deplore that action as well as if he sides with Assad.

Obama needs to stay out of this there would be no way to win and though when dealing with human life one cannot be concerned with winning, only with the saving of people.  His golden opportunity came and went months ago. Now it would be too little too late. The U.S. cannot afford another conflict, too many lives would be at stake.  He needs to keep out of this one.  One more reason for him to stay neutral is because as usual in the Mideast, Israel will become an increasingly easy target!

Barack, who had in the past, been so reliant on the United Nations to make a decision for him is not paying heed this time around.  Maybe because of Russian President Putin’s words, “I want to draw your attention to one absolutely fundamental fact,” Putin said in an interview with
the Associated Press and the Russian state television network Channel One. “In accordance with applicable international law, the authorization
of the use of force against a sovereign state can only be given by the Security Council of the United Nations,”
he said. “Any other reasons, or
methods, to justify the use of force against an independent and sovereign state are unacceptable and cannot be qualified as anything
other than aggression.”
  And so it goes…

Steve Richie

Hi folks, Two lives in one lifetime. The first me, lived to age thirty-four. That Steve was overly confident and oozing with pride. Then, on a record heat-setting day (107º) here in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and western Wisconsin, a one car near-fatal wreck left me in a two-month long coma. I emerged much as I was before minus certain physical capabilities, but my mind seemed mostly in tact. The crash and its effects did not change me (I emerged a happy individual) but the deeds perpetrated against me in the ensuing months from my wife of sixteen years scared and humbled me as I was dragged down with nothing left by my wife who now had guardianship over all of our accounts. And neither would she allow me to see our kids. She took everything out of, "Our" names and changed them to her name only; then would not allow me to our home and divorced me. I was angry, but no more. I spent half of 1988 and more than half of 1989 in hospitals, nursing homes and a three month stint at a head-injury rehab center where I was being taught how to re-enter society as this different person, that I didn't know. I was not able to return to my previous line of work, a self-employed decorator, you know, painting and paperhanging. It was a physical job which required much dexterity, finesse, and a good grasp of numbers. I returned to the beginning, school, but on a community college level. One of the instructor's liked my writing and I began focusing my attention on that. I attended classes at, "The Loft," A Place for Writers in Minneapolis. While there, a classmate of mine was having her friend from New York, a CBS executive, to her home for the holidays and asked me if she could do a critique on a couple chapters of a book I was writing, "A Day I'll Never Remember" and I obliged. When she returned to class the following Monday she told me that the exec wanted a ten-page synopsis of the book for a possible movie; I was excited. After obliging for that also, I never saw or heard from her or the guy from CBS. Next thing I knew I was watching a movie called, "Regarding Henry" starring Harrison Ford and the scenes of therapy were exactly like what I went through and had written about. Regarding Henry - could've been my story except that, "Henry" got his head injury from a gunshot and his wife stayed with him throughout the ordeal. Coincidence I'm sure, though, the therapy scenes entailed what I described in the book so I always wondered..... My hope, my dream is to bolster our income for my daughter and for myself. I am and have been raising this beautiful, talented little girl who was diagnosed with autism at age two, since 2006 singlehandedly. I divorced her mother the same year following complaints that I spent too much time with our daughter. However, Stephanie began school with no need for special education. She has been reading since age four and understanding what she'd read. Stephanie maintains straight "A's" on her report card, has published two books (through school) and has been selected as an, "Honors" student for seventh grade English. My ex moved to New York to be closer to her sister and has been remarried now for a number of years. Well, that's only a snippet of my sixty-one years and I would like to thank you for reading, thank you.
