Obama gives kids what they want…

By kids, I mean his American constituents

His Syrian policy is really a story of “Epic incompetence,” so states Charles Krauthammer , or what about this slant, “Unbelievably small” presidency as Marc Thiessen puts it or that, “No one is afraid of him” Ruth Marcus argued.   These  opinions are from the writer’s of the Washington Post.

However, the most recent developments from Syria have been generally positive from America‘s  standpoint anyway.  The President has accomplished goals that many American citizens endorse, but then, the menu of choices has been few and mostly unpalatable.

Polls (you have to take them with much skepticism) imply that the public prodigiously is behind BHO on this round.  A full 79 percent endorsed the U.S. Russian plan to get rid of Syria’s chemical weapons as opposed to missile strikes.  Yet, Syria nor Russia can be trusted, can they?

I mean is Russia really going to destroy Syria’s chemical arsenal?  They have, after all, supplied them with much military equipment. Getting rid of those weapons and making the playing field more equal has been the goal of Obama for close to 2 years maybe.

But Barack has an affinity for being on the wrong side of things; maybe this time he’s gotten it right!  Obama garners little respect so that even when he proposes what the country wants and succeeds at it, he still gets blasted as a failure, which in many respects, he is…

And so it goes…

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.
