#1 I wonder, could McRaven's outburst on 17th been motivated by service jealousy?

Not unlike, Monday's post-Baghdadi news...

#2 There was a time when being a 'Citizen of Rome' meant the locals didn't screw with them, otherwise very unpleasant consequences. The Romans were known not to worry about carrying out 'group' punishment for the acts of one or a few.

#3 Disagree with Belmont club on this. Obama wasn’t 20 years early. We won’t be ready for all talk no strength to backbit up in 20 years. Maybe 200 years.

#4 Obama was a nullity, a blob, a zilch. An empty vessel into which our virtue-signaling elite poured their hopes for a "global citizen" president.

The ultimate affirmative action beneficiary who couldn't write a legal brief (though he was voted onto the most prestigious law review in a popularity contest), couldn't come up with or lead passage of any significant legislation (though he won multiple elections after each of his opponents self-destructed in scandal), and couldn't articulate or conduct an even minimally competent foreign policy (though he was acclaimed a genius and awarded a Nobel).

Chauncey Gardiner.
