Letters from the Lunar Outpost

An excellent man, like precious metal, Is in every way invariable; A villain, like the beams of a balance, Is always varying, upwards and downwards.
- Saskya Pandita, Tibetan Grand Lama of Saskya (1182-1251)

  • Mike, Mike, Mike, stop trying to use logic on liberals. It’s like trying to put out a forest fire with a garden hose.

    • There are plenty of mindless loyalists in Obama’s flock, but to be fair, I do have to say I’ve been pleasantly surprised checking out the comments section at the NYT, seeing a majority of the replies coming from people who voted for Obama twice and are now in various degrees of disillusionment and disgust over the Peace President’s warmongering.

      Take a guy like Kucinich, while I rarely agree with him, I’ve always had to respect him for staying true to his beliefs. He may be the exception rather than the norm, but checking out those comments at the NYT, he’s not the only liberal who puts conviction above partisan politics.

    • The silence is still deafening, though.

  • Ya Mike, quit trying to talk sense to liberals! They are all idiots.

  • I’m just getting the hang of the blog: Obama/liberals are douches. Response: mike, you hit on the head again!!

    Good stuff. I know how to chime in now. Obama is a warmonger!!

    • Actually, I’d much rather have your dissenting point of view. Perhaps it’s almost impossible for a thinking person such as yourself to continue to defend this disaster of a president.

  • Mike, the Elites in D.C. tell us we have to support Obama. He is POTUS and this will hurt America around the world if we fail to support him. Why can’t I wrap my mind around this kind of thinking? Feel like both Obama and Kerry are lying to us, and really believe we do not know who these Rebels are.

    • Boehner, McConnell and McCain are obviously three of the highest profile Republicans in Congress, and yes, they are telling us we have to support Obama on this, but they’re on the wrong side of the vote, both morally and in the numbers and I think this will mark the beginning of the end of their days as leaders..

      Right now, there numbers show YES: 49, NO 199 in the House. Because the strike on Syria is so unpopular however, there are probably a lot of members of Congress whose minds are made up as a Yes, but they’re holding out because they want it to look like they thought long and hard over it. The final numbers will be a lot tighter, but if we can have any hope that most representatives will pay heed to what their constituents think, this bill will die in the House.

      The question then will be, will Obama make good on his threats and strike regardless of what Congress thinks? If so, that will be his undoing as well.
