The Insurgency in Afghanistan's Heartland

This came from the INTERNATIONAL CRISIS GROUP. http://www.crisisgroup.org

Kabul/Brussels, 27 June 2011: Collusion between insurgent elements and corrupt government officials in Kabul and the nearby provinces has increased, leading to a profusion of criminal networks in the Afghan heartland.

An Alternative to Taxing the Rich?

When mathematicians propose a challenging problem to their peers to either prove or disprove, they call it a "conjecture."  Therefore I propose this post as a conjecture to be either attacked without mercy or advocated with a passion, or somewhere in between.  So sharpen your long knives and go at it with my blessing.  After all, I'm Irish.  Consider this a satirical work-in-progress.

Another "Gotcha" Discovered in Obamacare

This came from the Washington Post via Associated Press.  For your consideration.

A twist in Obama’s health care law opens Medicaid to some making up to $64,000.

President Barack Obama’s health care law would let several million middle-class people get nearly free insurance meant for the poor.   Government number crunchers say they discovered…

About Healthcare Reform

Obama-style healthcare reform and its economic consequences are alarming.  What is more alarming is our President couldn't care less about the consequences.  What follows are a few observations (Remember, I'm Irish.  One never knows if we are arguing with a passion or just pulling your leg.)

  1. The surest way to make the new healthcare system cost more and do less than the old healthcare system is to pioneer the wrong…

It's all about change ... Where's the hope?

A friend sent this to me.  Author unknown.

There is nothing political about this email. It simply points out very probable changes that are in our future.

CHANGES ARE COMING--and they're very frightening!! …

Political advice from my relatives

Be careful about using loaded words to brand yourself.  Examples are "liberal", "conservative", "progressive", "moderate", "right wing" and "left wing."  People have different ideas about what these words mean and all of these ideas are radical.

People only remember three things in near-term memory.  Even the brightest only remember up to…

Taliban war room notes

Taliban war room minutes

by Fu Ling Yu, Secretary

The Americans and a coalition of troops are about to leave Afghanistan.  They want to remove our leader, turn our country into a democratic republic, stop the opium trade, and “westernize” the Afghan culture to look like Turkey.  They also want to give women equal rights with men with access to education and jobs.  They wish to make sure that Imams do not rule…

A presidential entourage surpassing the queen's

If you're not sure what "big government" implies, take a look at this.

President Obama showed up at the G-20 summit in London with everything but the proverbial kitchen sink -- although he did bring the White House chef and the kitchen staff.

Government Oil-Free Solution to Transportation Problem \satire

A political committee decided to come up with a personal transportation system to solve the US dependence on foreign oil.  They chose the camel as their solution.  Two models could solve all personal transportation needs: one-hump and two-humps.  They worried about CO2 emissions caused by camel breath, but felt that camel droppings could compensate for this shortcoming because the farmers could use the droppings as plant fertilizer.  However, there was a collection and distribution problem…

About Liberty

What will you celebrate on July 4th?  Will it be a family holiday and a chance for fun and recreation?  Or will you also celebrate something else?

On July 4, the United States of America celebrates the anniversary of its independence from another nation that is now one of our strongest allies.  The colonists had the consequences of a human-nature flaw fresh in mind, abuse of power.  Their best trained minds wrote one of the world’s most famous political and historic…

Afghanistan - A Reflection

I recently read the best seller, “A Thousand Splendid Suns.”  An Afghan immigrant wrote it, using Afghan history from the perspective of a few families caught up in the post Russian occupation era.

After I finished the book, I recalled an important lesson in foreign policy given by Henry Kissinger.  His PhD dissertation from Harvard asserted:  “One can predict a nation’s behavior with a high degree of certainty by thoroughly studying their history.”  His arguments were so compelling…
