Another Military Man Hangs On

It appears that Colonel Gaddify(?) is going to hang on a bit longer. It does not look like the "rebels" have the firepower or expertise to deal with a military that is not afraid to use real force to decide the issue. Oh well, let them fight it out. I would warn the Libyan govt though to refrain from damaging the energy infrastructure. That might get the Euros off the pot to depose Gaddify if they begin to pay even more for their oil than they already do. Anyway, the whole place is not worth the life of one member of the U.S. military. It appears that the reports of the demise of Colonel Gaddify were premature.

There have been reports that another military man will be leaving us soon. Thankfully these reports appear to be a bit premature also. Cap'n Horatio Magellan Crunch has been reported to be forced into retirement. Apparently that will not be the case however or at least not at this point. I am not sure what started this whole affair. Could it be that the food police have decided that they have finally had enough of the good Captain? Now the Captain's cereal is way to sickly sweet for my tastes, but then again I don't have to buy it. So therefore I just don't. If someone wants Cap'n Crunch however, then they should be able to go to the local green grocer and buy a box. The marketplace, as far as I can determine, has not dictated that  the Captain retire. I wonder where all the fuss originated. I suspect that the makers of the cereal perhaps are starting to feel the heat. Just speculation of course, but the First Lady has become sort of a self appointed food czarina. If you remember her opening salvo was the "fresh fruits and vegetables at the likka sto" comment. I just wonder if the govt is putting some pressure on the those in the food manufacture business. Again just speculation.  I could be wrong.

I sure get sick of do gooders telling us all what is good for us. Don't you? I understand that there are certainly more important things going on in the world than worrying about Cap'n Crunch cereal. I will point out however that the battles against  obesity, tobacco, the Golden Arches, saturated fat, etc.etc. are mere skirmishes in a low level "war" on the freedoms we enjoy in this country.  Do we all want to go down the path of NYC or SF? The happy fascists have already won in those fair cities.

Some of your posts make you sound like some 'kook' Congressman from Texas that has been saying this for years.

You know, less military adventurism, less taxes, less nanny state.

I assume you are talking about the rep from my district. While I certainly don't want the govt on my back, telling what I can (or can't)eat, etc. I do think Paul is a bit "out there," He does have some good ideas sure, but some seem just a bit far out.
