    To those who want to give the big middle finger to the rest of the world and pull out of the messy alliances we are part of…..forget about it

    Isolationism is an instinct that has always run deep in the American psyche. It was a dream in the early part of the 20th century. It became an utter folly and impossibility after WWII.

    We as a nation are engaged with the whole world economically, politically, militarily and in every other way possible. There is no going back. The only way is forward.

    What Obama has absurdly proposed is that America become just one of many nations. He bows and apologizes. He seems to think we can sink into the background on the world stage, play a supporting role. This is of course dangerous nonsense. Power hates a vacuum and if we retreat, others hostile to US will advance. This is the lesson of history we dare not ignore.

    What we need is a POTUS like Truman, like JFK, like Reagan, like Bush…men who all understood that when America LEADS, the world is a safer place. When an inexperienced fool like Obama leads, we get Ayatollahs with nukes and the Middle East at war…with the superpowers dangerously close to being sucked into the abyss of WWIII.

    Barely a blip compared to Weiner’s story. But…

    AMMAN – Syrian tanks and helicopters stormed the town of Jisr al-Shughour on Sunday, residents said, and state television reported heavy clashes between army troops and gunmen opposed to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

    “A senior Turkish diplomat said 4,300 Syrian refugees had crossed the border and were being cared for in hospitals and camps, but a Western diplomat said the number was higher and witnesses said some 10,000 were sheltering near the border.”

      Asked if there were clashes in the town Mustapha, a 39-year-old mason who fled early on Sunday, told Reuters “What clashes? The army is shelling the town from tanks. Everyone has been fleeing.

      “Even if we we did have guns, what are they going to do in front of artillery? Syria is a tightly controlled dictatorship and all of a sudden the regime says Jisr al-Shughour is armed to the teeth. They are lying. They are punishing us for wanting freedom.”

      ‘Defecting soldiers are being killed’
      Residents said the army unit was commanded by Assad’s brother Maher and was copying the tactics used in other centers to crush protesters demanding an end to Assad’s autocratic rule.

      There had been large demonstrations in the town, which lies between Syria’s second city Aleppo and the port of Latakia.

      The government said last week that “armed gangs” had killed more than 120 security personnel there. Refugees and rights groups said the deaths were of mutinous soldiers, shot for refusing to fire on civilians.

      “When the massacre happened in Jisr al-Shughour the army split, or they started fighting each other and blamed it on us,” a woman refugee, who refused to give her name, told Turkish news channel NTV.

      The United States accused the Syrian government of creating a “humanitarian crisis” and called on it to halt its offensive and allow immediate access by the International Committee for the Red Cross to help refugees, detainees and the wounded.

        Spent 80 on tickets, lost 30.  My old man picked the right horse, unfortunately he only had an $8 win ticket for it.  I tend to buy ‘trifecta box’ tickets.  THe closest I came was two for three on a 3,5,8 box trifecta.

        Here’s another one, this time it’s the winner being led to the starting gate with the 24:1 odds visible on the board behind ‘em.
