This is your government. Wake up.

Your government is willing to steal the homes of its elderly veterans.  How do you think it will treat you?
On the day Bennie Coleman lost his house, the day armed U.S. marshals came to his door and ordered him off the property, he slumped in a folding chair across the street and watched the vestiges of his 76 years hauled to the curb. 
Movers carted out his easy chair, his clothes, his television. Next came the things that were closest to his heart: his Marine Corps medals and photographs of his dead wife, Martha. The duplex in Northeast Washington that Coleman bought with cash two decades earlier was emptied and shuttered. By sundown, he had nowhere to go. 
All because he didn’t pay a $134 property tax bill.

This is the new America.  When you vote in the statists, when you vote in the despots, this is what you get.  Shame on them, and shame on us for letting it happen.  This country can't collapse fast enough.

Epic fail in the works: US training "select groups" in Jordan, considering Syrian rebels

It's like watching a drunk try the same thing over, and over, and over, not even comprehending the fact that he has failed 18 times already.  Yes, the US CIA is training mujahideens.  What could possibly go wrong?
The Obama administration is considering a plan to use U.S. military trainers to help increase the capabilities of the Syrian rebels, in a move that would greatly expand the current CIA training being done quietly in Jordan, U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Any training would take place outside Syria, and one possible location would be Jordan.
The CIA has been training select groups of rebels in Jordan on the use of communications equipment and some weapons provided by Gulf states.  
It's the classic strategy of Washington.  If a plan fails, double down, triple down, quadruple down, etc., but never, under any circumstances, learn a fucking lesson from your failure.  The lunatics are running the asylum and Osama bin Laden is laughing at us from hell.
