Monday Night News & Notes

Sphere: Related Content

At least in two weeks we'll have MNF to make our Mondays a little better. And it kicks off with the Eagles versus the hated Skins.

Anyway, here's what is new in this crazy-ass world:

-The media is playing lapdog to Obama again over his "red line" comments. Here's what Obama actually said:

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” the president said a year ago last week. “That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”
Yes, there's definitely wiggle room there and Obama used the typical mealy-mouthed bullshit we always hear from him when it comes to acting tough. Indeed, he never did say what his actions would be and he did use the weaselly "bunch of chemical weapons", which could be one time using enough to kill a thousand or ten times killing a hundred...either way, a thousand are dead. But anyone who follows the Arab media through sites like MEMRI know damn well that it was interpreted on al-Jazeera and every other middle eastern station that Obama made a threat, Assad disregarded what Obama said and gave him the finger. Obama now needs ABC to cover his ass. Except no one in the Arab world will read that and everyone will think Obama is backing down and got punked.  That will lead to us looking weak and further attacks as any weakness in the part of the world where tribal rules still take precedence is a sign to make your move.

-For crying out loud, legalize it already. When half the country is on government assistance and many can't find a full-time job, worrying about whether or not someone is blowing a blunt seems superfluous.

-Dude, what the fuck was up with Miley Cyrus? I mean, bears, her horrid voice, her twerking, her ridiculous dancing, her outfit, her hair, her tongue? I don't even know where to begin. Dude, if she was even remotely good looking, I may give her a pass on some of it (because, I'm feel, a guy) but that shit was just embarrassing. Actually, the whole VMA's are a joke. 

-But at least we have proof that all young people mindless idiots. Some are heroes and these are the ones we should be talking about. Army Staff Sergeant Ty Carter received the MOH today. Thanks to heroes like this man we can be proud of who we are. Who is this man who "sucked at being a civilian"? Watch this:

-James O'Keefe is relentless. The new media is awesome when it gets former US Attorney's to lose their friggin minds.

-Is the IRS targeting the American Legion? It appears that way. Liberals hate anything that's good about America.
