THURSDAY UPDATES: RAND PAUL, GENERAL MCHRYSTAL, MYVIEWMATTERS RADIO, AND MORE!

Let's do some catch up this morning shall we?

RAND PAUL STILL THE DEVIL: The CJ is still hammering Rand Paul and now with letters to the editor. Reader Letters Whose best interests? courier-journal.com The Courier-Journal. Never mind that anyone who actually pays attention realizes these people don't know what they are talking about.

FIRING GENERAL MCCHRYSTAL: Yesterday General McChrystal, the commanding officer in Afghanistan was relieved of duty by Obama. I don't get it. I am a veteran and really saw nothing worthy of termination in the Rolling Stone article that created this conflict The Runaway General Rolling Stone Politics. Let's face it General McChrystal probably did not make the best choice by allowing a reporter to witness him and his staff in an off duty situation and being open and candid, but termination?.

If we are going to allow "embedded media" to go into war zones to capture anything and everything they want and spin it what was so wrong with McChrystal and his men throwing down a few. How many of us do the same thing after a tough day on the job. Drink a few beers, bitch about things, and move on. The General is no different. I personally liked the fact he felt he had nothing to hide and his people were open. I guess relieving stress these days is uncalled for as well.

MYVIEWMATTERS RADIO SHOW: MyViewMatters Radio, thanks to the enormous success over the last year doubling listeners each and every quarter, has moved to a new time slot. Tonight will mark the new date and time inaugural show following Sean Hannity on WKJK 1080 AM at 6 pm.

Tune in we will actually interview my normal, now former full time co host, and Libertarian candidate for 3rd Congressional District Ed Martin. Ed's duties to the show will be waning a bit during this election season so he can focus on his campaign. He will be remaining as Co Owner and a part time co host.

ILLEGALS CONTINUED: There is rumor that Obama will be granting immunity to illegal aliens through executive actions. Senators Challenge Pres. Obama on Rumors of Amnesty Thorugh Executive Actions NumbersUSA - For Lower Immigration Levels. Personally, I am sick of this garbage. Our federal government is supposed to be focused on protecting our borders and instead have decided to take a new direction in our history by nation building across the globe like, oh say for example, Afghanistan.

Obama do your job and close the borders, collect the illegal population, send them back to Mexico, and anywhere else they came from, and put together a decisive plan to clean up our home first. Continuing to try and Nation build wasting billions of dollars that could be utilized here at home is ridiculous.

It is past time to do the job we elect our officials to do.

  1. This is reason enough for termination...
    "Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
