In search of what's next

Firestorm. Where's your hat?

The port takeover deal is starting to get ratcheted up from a lot of different angles. I think the administration is making a mistake over not trying to get the public to understand. I for one do not understand at all. Why in God's name are we letting a foreign company controlled by a tiny 3rd world country be in charge of a vital portion of our nations economy?

That's the question we need to be heard on.

I support most of the president's efforts at securing our nation from outside enemies. I think he's doing a good job for the most part. (let's not count the illegal alien open invitation we currently have with Mexico) But on this project, he is failing miserably at getting word out as to why it's so important to let this tiny country be in charge of the ports of the most powerful nation on earth.

Think about this for a minute. The bible says that the love of money is the root of all evil. Why does one love money so much? For power. You've heard the saying that power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. These little Arab nations have too much power in the form of oil right now as it is. Give one of them access to a strangle point to the most powerful nation in the world and it spells trouble to me.

I don't care if they are an ally, I need to know why this little bitty country has to be in charge of our ports?

Do we get to build supersized military bases in the area in return? Do we get supersized discounts on oil? Do we get to be in charge of oil exports there?

Can we go after Michael Jackson for some other legal problem since he ran away from his own country? Doesn't he live there now?
