…from the Diplomad:
As the current Obamacare roll-out debacle shows, yet again, in Obama we have a president with the sneering arrogance found in Shelley’s Ozymandias; the aloof cluelessness of Marie Antoinette; and the interpersonal skills, leadership abilities, managerial talents, and willingness to accept responsibility of Moe Howard.
For these and many more reasons, President Obama, America’s first “mixed race” president (yawn), should have passed into history as a curiosity, a footnote alongside President Cleveland’s two non-consecutive terms, Taft’s huge custom-built bathtub, Harding’s love child, and Carter’s battle to the death with a drowning rabbit. Instead, however, this junior senator from Illinois, the man with no discernible background of achievement, has become the most destructive president in American history. The amount of damage, much of it perhaps permanent, he and “his” team have done to the economy, to individual liberty, to people’s trust in government, and to our nation’s international standing is incalculable. Disaster, fiasco, catastrophe, debacle, I give up, no thesaurus contains enough synonyms to capture the all-around horridness of this anti-American, anti-West presidential misadministration.
All I can add is, of course, RTWT– and praise the Lord my time is almost done. My children and your children will be dealing with the fallout from this misbegotten monstrosity of an administration for, probably, the rest of their lives. Too bad so many of them bought his bullshit and helped elect him. Schadenfreude would be too easy, but I love my country and my children, so what is coming pains me deeply.
The major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.

Rantburg in all its glory– look fast, their links go away in a hurry:
[Dawn] Drones are unmanned aircrafts. They are called unmanned because they are actually manned by women. So one can say drones are women-manned aircrafts. This is done to insult the conservative sensibilities of our brothers in the tribal areas where, of course, there are no women.
The first drone attack to take place in Pakistain was actually in 1024AD. It was fired by a Rajput stooge of the Jews on the army of Mahmud Ghaznavi who was liberating the Somnath temple from idols. He took away some gold as well which he duly distributed among the poor in what today is Dubai.
The first Pak to be hit by a drone was actually an innocent camel in North Wazoo. This made him very angry and as a result, he began to behave like a rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex.
Drones were invented by the famous Jewish scientist, Albert Einstein when his equation, E=mc2, was successfully challenged and debunked by the famous Musselmen physicist, Oreo Maqbool Biscuit in his equally famous book, ‘War and Peace’, co-written with nuclear scientist, alchemist and judo expert, Zaid Hamid in 1941.
When asked how a drone attack was possible in 1024AD, Oreo said it was a case of time travel. This, he said, was achieved when the reptilian Elders of Zion discovered a wormhole near Jerusalem that distorted the space-time continuum in the region and made the camels of that area very angry and krazed killer. Thus, the invention of drones. He insists that he be given a Nobel Prize for this discovery.
Ever since 1024AD, drones have killed over three billion Paks. It is strange how not a single non-Musselmen Pak has ever been killed by a drone. So, to balance things out, the angry camels began to kill Christians. It was only fair.
Compared to the 3bn Pak Musselmens killed by the drones, only 14 Paks have been killed in suicide kabooms by the angry camels. Such attacks are not at all common in Pakistain. In fact, the first ever suicide attack in the country took place only last Sunday and that too only because Pakistain is a country full of sinners and bad Musselmens.
It just gets better…
I’m not sure whether to be exhilarated or terrified:
