Going Classic… kinda

I wanted a new pocket knife.  I know, I have a bunch… but I’ve carried all of them and they have lint on them now.  You know what I mean?  That and they are mostly all “Tactical” of some sort.   Well, one of my favorites has been a Buck Avid Select.  The problem it has is that it feels too delicate for hard work.  It’s a great knife and wicked sharp… but I want something a little more tough.  This thin Buck though has made me look at other Buck knives and I kinda kept coming back to the classic 110 Folding Hunter.  The Buck 110 is what really started the folding knife as being an acceptable outdoorsman’s knife.  The lock mechanism, the clip point blade, and a good size made it great knife for all around use.   Continue reading

The hypocrisy is staggering.

We need to GTFO of Libya.  We have nothing to do with Libya and we can’t afford to get involved in their internal struggle.  Libya has a history of American Hatred, so they don’t even want our help and they certainly don’t deserve it.  As much as I don’t like that crack-pot over there… he’s over there and has made no threats against the USA.

But what I find most repugnant, is the hypocrisy of this administration.

“The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.

As Commander-in-Chief, the President does have a duty to protect and defend the United States. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action.”
-Barack Obama, December 20, 2007

So tell me… Where does Obama get off doing this?  In his own words, these actions are wrong.  If this was Bush doing this… Bush would be the most vile and despicable person in history.  But Barry gets a pass… even if his excuse for doing this mirrors Bush’s reason for Iraq.

OBAMA: ‘Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world’… 

MARCH 19, 2003
BUSH: ‘American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the… world from grave danger’…

I don’t know… maybe I’m just not nuanced in geopolitical matters… I mean, I only took a semester of it in college so I am no expert by any means.  But I do know the difference between right and wrong.  And being in Libya is flat out wrong.  We need to GTFO.

Wait… this isn’t a WAR… It’s a Kenetic Military Action.  Oh, well then.  Never mind.
