Putin: Crazy like a fox or crazy like a loon?

#1  Putin isn't crazy, he's reacting to a Western policy consensus that is crazy (like a loon.)

The US and NATO have been systematically eroding Western deterrence for over a decade. One of the consequences is war in Eastern Europe.

#2  Why does it have to be either or?

#3  Putin is crazy. Bibi is crazy. No doubt we shall soon hear that Narendra Modi crazy. All the opponents of Obamacare & Amnesty are crazy. Do I detect a pattern?

#4  Putin is to Obama as Reagan was to Gorbachev. Here's hoping America's Yanayev appears and has more success at restoring the former system than did the original.

Home Front: Culture Wars
NY Times uses a satire news site for its news

Editors’ Note: November 22, 2014

An earlier version of this column was published in error. That version included what purported to be an interview that Kanye West gave to a Chicago radio station in which he compared his own derrière to that of his wife, Kim Kardashian. Mr. West’s quotes were taken, without attribution, from the satirical website The Daily Currant. There is no radio station WGYN in Chicago; the interview was fictitious, and should not have been included in the column.

#1  Thereby illustrating the great NYT editorial principle: If it sounds like what we think, we print it.

#1  As if I needed yet another reason to avoid flying these sorry buggers.

#2  I've avoided them for the past fifteen years, due to a long list of awful first-person experiences with the company, unless it was absolutely essential due to location and schedule.

Now the 'essential' element might become mitigated by taking a bus or something.

ALLAH INVITED IN, CHRISTIANS BOOTED OUT: Something’s Wrong In Colorado Schools
"In Fort Collins, Colorado, Rocky Mountain High School Principle Tom Lopez has the students reciting “In Allah we Trust” in the name of diversity. Just a hundred miles south in the suburbs of Colorado Springs, the Principal of Pine Creek High School has banned groups discussing Christianity during free time to protect “the separation of church and state.” Confused yet?

On the other hand, Fort Colorado Principal Tom Lopez insists that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic, as well as other languages
is a totally appropriate student-based decision coming from their “Culture Club” which 'doesn’t fall under the umbrella of the district."

#1  Culture Club is running schools in Colorado. Could have been worse. It could have been Wham.

Barack Obama’s Assault On America
"Newspeak is a corrosive force, as Orwell made clear, because it contributes to the slow erosion of verities, such as the fundamental elements of the American Creed."

#1  Commenter TomB nails it. Underscore in para 4, my work:

TomB > docker • a day ago

Well, you'll first note that I referenced not just Mr. Obama's actions but his *kind* of economics, meaning Democratic ones.

So anyway just to address a biggie of Mr. Obama's has been as I cited in Mr. Merry's recent column here "The Decline Of The Democratic Party Has Arrived" where he noted that as regards Obamacare alone "It reduces spending, for example, on Medicare—which serves a population that is 77 percent white—by $500 billion over ten years. And it transfers much of that money to Medicaid, whose recipients are 59 percent minority."

Or of course one could just point to the clear willingness of Mr. Obama and his party to pay all the zillions in social welfare and educational costs of all the illegals it is so enamored with and wants to further entitle.

Moreover, what has the Democratic Party been doing over the last 60+ decades other than not just admitting but positively *boasting* over its redistributionist beliefs and accomplishments?

So what are you suggesting? That suddenly all that obvious history and all those proud boasts go down the memory hole, and anyone noting same is a scoundrel?

#2  Marxist grandparents, Marxist mother, Marxist close friends. What part didn't you understand.
