Defending the Indefensible
The House of Saud. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. KSA. The Saudi's. WhoTF are these people? And how is that the American government is willing to allow American citizens to languish as kidnap victims in that country - but no other?
Iran takes 52 hostages and the U.S. was willing to send special forces by Helicopter... KSA has hundreds of American citizens held hostage and we wipe the Web clean of their existence... Just who are these Saud's?
A brutal, repressive, cruel, and heartless bunch with only the hooligans of the Third Reich as competition (well, maybe Uncle Joe and good old Pol Pot)... and the U.S. supports this bunch blindly and unequivocally. But why?
Because the political upheaval that will strike the U.S. AFTER any major political upheaval strikes KSA is just too terrible to be considered by all of the folks in D.C., who have dedicated their lives to getting where they are, to contemplate. Because the International Bond Market might well shut down America's ability to borrow to continue its asinine budgets for its military and social programs (Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and now SNAP, the former Food Stamp program). You see, all of these programs will fail the people depending on them... irrespective of the voluminous Horse Sh*t being promulgated in the "progressive" MSM.
("Oh, how can you be so heartless?" you might ask.... I am not heartless... the International Bond Market is. If there are 10 miners trapped in a shaft, and enough O2 for 8, is the recognition of this circumstance "heartless"? I define "heartless" as being willing to addict the American people to social programs that absolutely, positively won't be there for them... and I include the military in that... the military has been a release valve to soak up excessive unemployment amongst the young for the past several decades. That, too, is gong to come to a screeching halt.)
So here we are, America, land of the free, home of the brave... providing support for what is for all intents and purposes a Mafia family running a country of 29,000,000 or so human beings... a nation where men are not permitted to vote and women are not permitted to drive or to travel without the permission of their closet male relative, and that INCLUDES women who happen to be American citizens who want to come home but cannot because their Saudi husbands won't "let" them.
Doesn't that sound just a wee bit strange to you? Where is the F*&ing outrage from FemiNazi of State Clinton? Why is it that a Libertarian (Republican) like yours truly has to point this out when we have any number of Feminists in the Cabinet, Senate, and House of Representatives?
Good Lord, sometimes I think I am the only normal person left...
Anyway... here's the deal. Even the House of Saud cannot hold back the wind. This is going to happen, though I have no idea "when" - and it could easily happen in Iran first, which is almost as bad - the House of Saud is going to fall. When it does Oil will trade between $150 and $400 forever more, and America's car-driving-pro-choice-vegetarin-Great Society-adhering goofballs will still be protesting that "Life Ain't Fair"... but in a whole different ball game.
