While the "fiscal cliff" negotiations are an apparent failure, with the imminent passage of the Farm Bill, your weekend big winners are: the dairy farmers, Monsanto and the newly preggers Kim Khardashian, all of whom may have been genetically modified.....

If you are exposed to any media you have been inundated with the current "negotiations" of the impending (and tragically  misnamed) "fiscal cliff." I have sat on the sidelines observing commentary on both sides of the  aisle as what more is there to there an angle, a perspective that has yet to be voiced? Until now I would answer with a resounding no. Until now.
As the President and Speaker break for the holidays and have what Obama has described as a cooling  off period, one thing is very clear...the president is a political genius. No, really...hear me out.
First, he defeats the incredibly popular and experienced Hillary Clinton in the primary despite having a resume anyone  would admit is slightly light in the loafers by any standard. And he starts his victorious run right out of the Iowa. Iowa. A black man carries Iowa.
Second, he decimates his opposition and wins the Oval Office handily, reigning in four years of a presidency that sees the economy spit and sputter, the deficit balloon and foreign affairs explode, ending with an American diplomat dragged out  of our embassy and summarily killed. And yet he achieves what many thought was impossible...he seeks and wins re-election.
And now that he has a mandate and his reelection totals still warm, he seeks resolution of an economic  recovery program which includes that which the vast majority of conservatives have vowed not to do...raise taxes on anyone, let alone the very people who heavily  funded their failed attempts to "take their  country back"...the  filthy rich.
And so here we a White House room with Speaker Boehner waving his index finger at the Pres, and the president waiving another finger back at Boehner. You see Obama knows what most conservatives fail to see...the American people see the GOP as the stumbling block in the negotiations....and if anything goes wrong...if they fail to reach agreement....and if the across the board tax cuts end....the American electorate will hold Boehner and the GOP to blame.
The president has become elected with  little to no experience, was reelected to office despite an economic spiral, and now has managed to transfer ownership of the very economic condition he did so much to shape over the last four his opposition.
The man is an economic genius....even Bill Clinton has to marvel at his Teflon coating.
And that is the world...."The World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.

While many have lambasted NRA chief La Pierre for his idea to have an armed policeman patrolling each public school,I think it's a great idea. I live in an affluent area, and my daughter's high school has a patrolman there every'd never know he was there,except for a patrol car parked out in front (or two some days).
It warns intruders of a police presence and it gives the students the opportunity to get to know the police for what they are...brave public servants who are there for them (and not the enemy) also gives students the opportunity to ask them for advise, or help at home if they need it.
Don't think we can afford it? Sure we can...we'll just add the costs to gun registration fees and the price of bullets....just like the sin taxes on tobacco, gun owners can foot the bill for the potential for disaster public ownership of weapons present.
The NRA wants guards at every school? I say bring them on...we need more law enforcement in every town.....especially since we can now afford them due to the generous offer by NRA chief La Pierre...thanks,bud!
And that's the world...."The World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.

Ironic morning...following the national moment of silence for the victims of Sandy Hook with many moments of stupidity by NRA czar La Pierre....whose vision is of creating school prisons with armed guards at every entrance...armed guards patrolling every hallway and classroom....
Typical rhetoric...blame the media, video games, Hollywood and the mentally ill and skirt the real issue at hand....not that we should have the right to bare arms, but should we have unfettered rights to bare assault weapons and automatic weapons with clips of 10,20,30 there a need for possessing the ability to spray 20 bullets automatically in less than 5 seconds?
Should we continue with loose gun purchasing laws at gun shows and shouldn't we look at private gun sales which put serious weapons in the wrong hands?
At least now that the NRA has come out and spoken, maybe conservatives will come out from hiding and address the issue. Make no mistake, just as Norquist is/was their spokesman on taxes, La Pierre is their spokesman on guns.
And that's the world....the "World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.

If the only take-away from the tragic events from Sandy Hook is that you had better buy more guns, or  protect the automatic weapons you already own....
you are a moronic, heartless, unfeeling son of a bitch.
I'm not sure who Clay Bennett is from the Chattenooga Free Press,
but he deserves a Pulitzer for capturing the moment immediately following the tragedy.

I'm all about individual rights and I'm all about upholding the constitution.....
and I know that anyone who could look into the bright, fresh face of a 5 year old and pull the trigger is pure evil. All I'm saying is...we have to take action. Easily concealable handguns...automatic weapons...I'm tired of this shit. I'm tired of the weekly reports of madmen...of mass murders...
but this one really takes the cake. We have to have a conversation, and we need legislation.
And, if upon hearing the news reports your first thoughts were 
"OMG the liberals are going to want to take away my guns" F-you.
Those were 5 year old kids.
This has to stop.

On  this, the 71st anniversary of the surprise attack on an American military base, let us take pause to remember that when this country pulls together we can defeat any foe, right any wrong and defeat the forces of evil wherever they may be. In their righteous might, American heroes have always been there to protect our freedom, give others their freedom and serve as the world's watchdog and protector. 
God bless those who have served. 
God bless you and God bless these United States of America.
