Kind of Depressed

Written by Al. Posted in Personal

Every once in a while I just get depressed. The last couple of days have been like that.

There’s no real reason for it. I can’t point to any one thing that’s causing it. It’s just one of those things. I think we all go through it from time to time.

Anyway, whenever this happens I don’t feel like doing much of anything and just end up moping around the house and feeling miserable.

I learned a while back, one of the best ways to get through it is to clean the house. It doesn’t take a lot of concentration, it occupies your time and there’s a feeling of accomplishment when you finish. It often times pulls me out of my bad state of mind. I also figure if things don’t get any better and I end up killing myself, at least people won’t think I’m a slob.

(Note for anyone reading the above and thinking that I might actually kill myself, I assure you that will never happen. My ego’s too big and I can’t imagine the world going on without me.)

The Bergdahl Debacle

Written by Al. Posted in Politics

Richard Fernandez from PJ Media has a good take on the Bergdahl debacle. Here are a couple of highlights:

“The real causality runs thus: Obama didn’t use the Taliban 5 to release Bergdahl. Obama used Bergdahl to release the Taliban 5. The false narratives about his poor health, his heroic record and the supposed consultation were all manufactured to fit this requirement. Obama really didn’t give a rat’s a** about Bergdahl. What he really wanted was to find some way to spring those five Taliban gentlemen.

Obama’s strategy to “bring a fitting end” — in the words of Todd, Murray and Dunn — to the War on Terror has been to pay them off. He never intended to beat the enemy. He never even tried. All the stuff in Afghanistan, well that was just for show, for optics, to look tough.”

Burt Prelutsky Gets it Right

Burt always writes great stuff but he couldn’t be more on point than with this paragraph:

‘What makes Obama so incredibly vile has less to do with his various policies or even his appointing the likes of Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, John Kerry, Kathleen Sebelius and Chuck Hagel, to positions of authority, but the zeal with which he has used hatred and envy to divide Americans. For nearly six years, he has done his utmost to ignite feuds between men and women, the rich and poor, whites and blacks, citizens and illegal aliens and even atheists and believers. Obama and his sock puppet sycophants claim to be pacifists at heart, but they only oppose war when it’s against America’s actual enemies in Russia, North Korea and the Islamic world.’
