More Obama, al Qaida & Syria or 'Feeling like 2003 again'

Its Thursday.. brief check on the markets before we continue with things that matter..

We see its up 43 pts in late day trading..

Yawn..

The only reason its risen the past couple days is a lot of fund managers doing whatever they can in this current exceptionally-low trading volume market to end this month with their holdings as high as possible.

Nothing else...    So that's that..

OK.. What else?
Oh yes.. More Syria..  Seems over in lovely merry England their idiot leader David Cameron, if he was to have it his way, boots would be on the ground today..

Fortunately the people and most members of Parliament aren't so eager-beaver for a senseless war so they've essentially told him to cool his jets a little bit..  Something about waiting for weapons inspectors to report their findings FIRST, and THEN possibly invade..

God. it really feels like deja va

Wasn't it 10 years ago a Republican President was salivating, rather foaming at the mouth like some rabid raccoon to invade Iraq based on WMD that weren't there..  that Saddam gassed his people (way, way back in the early 1980s) and findings of yellow cake..
We have some yellow cake in our pantry.. it says Duncan Hines on the box.. with yummy pudding in the mix..

But we digressed.. cake does that..

Now we have a war-hungry Democrat..  Hmm, what is the point of elections anyways?

So, did Assad gas his people??  President Obama and Sec of Defense John Kerry sure think so.. they're pretty absolute and resolute on this..

Others aren't..
From AP news:

"The intelligence linking Syrian President Bashar Assad or his inner circle to an alleged chemical weapons attack is no "slam dunk," with questions remaining about who actually controls some of Syria's chemical weapons stores and doubts about whether Assad himself ordered the strike, U.S. intelligence officials say...

An intercept of Syrian military officials discussing the strike was among low-level staff, with no direct evidence tying the attack back to an Assad insider or even a senior Syrian commander, the officials said...

Another possibility that officials would hope to rule out: that stocks (gas canisters) had fallen out of the government's control and were deployed by rebels in a callous and calculated attempt to draw the West into the war."
Ugh.. this is sooo much feeling like 2003 again..

Except in 2003, we could buy a gallon of milk for $3.19 instead of $4.02 and a loaf of bread ran around $1.02...

And back in 2003, there was no such thing as 'twerking' and the world never heard of a Miley Cyrus..

Ron Paul had this to say on Fox News last night:

"Assad is not an idiot.. It's unlikely he would do this on purpose... Look how many lies were told to us about Saddam Hussein prior to that build-up (2003- Bush)... I think it's a false flag... There is a big risk that we are getting sucked in and the American people are against this war."
We'd have to agree..

We've said often that Obama is really Black Bush..

He is not a socialist or communist or any of the propaganda nonsense the Republicans spewed during two failure election cycles..

Obama is also not a true Democrat either..  You take his policies and his beliefs and go back in time to run him in Democrat primaries vs True Democrats like LBJ in the 60's and Carter in the 70's and there's no way in hell the President wins the support of the Dem base back then..
Wall Street corrupted the Democrat party starting with Slick Bill Clinton because after devastating losses to Reagan twice and Bush Sr, the party needed to tap into that vast hole of campaign contributions and kick backs from the Big Boys to compete nationally in elections..

So now both parties have no soul and with the exception of social issues like abortion and gay marriage are really no different..

Ask yourself this..  If any of the other major political players from 2008 and 2012 would have won and be current President, would things be different regarding this hungry push to war with Syria?
Hillary is no pacifist..  She's cut from the same cloth as Obama, Kerry and her husband who sent US troops into Bosnia..

McCain, the 2008 loser?  That bleeping cadaver...  He's one of the biggest war hawks currently.. Mitt Romney?? Please!

And that's what's sooo frustrating.. There's no one in the last 2 election cycles who could have won but didn't where you think. 'You know if he/she won, it'd be different now..'
That's a credit (being sarcastic) to the success of Wall Street to merge these two parties into a two-headed one-body monster..

You know folks.. As much as its sometimes not fun reading our dour posts, trust us, its really less fun having to write them...
