Divide and Conquer, Cap and Trade, Bitch and Moan

I caught the most intriguing interview the other night on XM radio.  It was Bill O’ Reilly querying John Stewart.  He asked Stewart a question about Obama’s performance, and Stewart’s reply was something to the effect of, “You know,” I can’t figure out if he is this amazing Jedi who is just light-years beyond all of us, or if he just doesn’t get it and this is kicking his butt.  After mulling this answer I had to ask myself, “Why can’t it be both?”

I mean, history is filled with the reality of amazing Jedi’s who just didn’t get it, Mao, Hitler, Darth Vader, just to name a few.  With all Jedi’s – gone – haywire it’s always the same.  They start with this amazing gift; with Hitler, it was his oratory, with Mao it was the ability to move people around like pieces on a chess board, and with the Vader, he could occupy different bodies.   One minute he could be James Earl Jones, and the next, he could be some white guy.
I was amused to hear Stewart speak with the absolute conviction that we could do something about global warming, but absolutely nothing about Iran’s procuring a nuclear weapon.

Here’s a simple fact:  For every smoke stack the United States caps off, India, China, Brazil and the rest of the emerging third world will be putting 100 into the air.  That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t shoot for green energy.  It just means to be aware of the reality.  Likewise, snubbing your only ally in the Mideast and treating Benjamin Netanyahu like the bad boy who needs a good finger shaking and tongue wagging, is not a masterful move of  of a jedi chess player.  It’s a foolish diminution of one’s own power, which, from a diplomatic standpoint, gives countries, like Iran a green light and and a wide open lane.

However, other genius jedi’s have made foes out of friends and suffered for it; Mussolini took a nation of allies to the U.S. in World War I and made them an enemy in WWII.  Hitler, who’s corruption from inception was veiled in his silver tongued speeches, turned on his ally, Stalin, and that decision contributed to his undoing, the shere division of power and resources brought the mighty war machine down; and, of course, finally, we all know that Darth Vader’s abandonment of the good side of the force and his marriage with the dark side, no matter how necessary it may have seemed to be for his preservation, was not worth the price of bondage and servitude.

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not disappoint me just as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read through, however I really thought you would have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
