Rand Paul Speaks at Heritage on Containment

by Steve MacDonald

Senator Paul speaks to the issue of Radical Islam and American engagement; No to isolationism, no to neoconservatism, yes to containment.

He’s spot on though I’d be interested in hearing his opinion about the costs Reagan embraced to expand the military as part of the Reagan foreign policy he otherwise seems to approve of in contrast to his concerns about affordability, as well as the risk of a nuclear Iran sharing technology or radiological weapons with it’s terror arms and what he sees as containment options for that as well as containment of the knowledge itself–and if and how that presents a danger to national interest, etc.

    Constitutional foreign policy, committing US forces some places some of the time, attacking enemies not nation building, defending US borders not interests abroad? This is the talk of a madman! He would single handedly gut the girth of the military industrial complex. He would stop bailing out Euro phonies by making them pick up their own trash. The heresy of it all! Uncle Sam needs more guns. Uncle Sam needs more buttah. Uncle Sam needs you to pay for it all.

      Easy, there big fella. You’re treading awfully close to the crux of the mater, and that just isn’t healthy. Don’t want to see you on a milk carton.
      Both Roosevelts, Wilson, and Ike, tried to tell the American people who was really in charge, and one poor bastaad actually tried to do a little sumfin sumfin about it and he got whacked and they whacked his little Bro’ just to make a point.
      I even think tricky Dick started asking the wrong questions too, and he was promptly escorted elsewhere.
      It’s all a big show. Watching and listening to political types go at it is like watching fleas fight over the dog.
      Stay on that other track (diet) your mind is always on, and help maintain the illusion. We can’t handle the truth.

        On the brite side of life, we do have people fretting about yet another Nor’easter. Can’t wait to see how this is another warning from Mommy that she’s a heatin’ up (I think she’s havin’ has a lady issue).

        Well, I better head out to the super-marché to stock up on some bread, milk, and buttah so I can impress a couple of deer friends in the morning with my homage to the hommes Française: soggy toast with plenty of syrup on top.

          Sorry to hear about the storm. i actually had to heat the greenhouse here last night as we are back down in the mid to high 20’s at night and mid to high 50’s durring the day, which is normal for Feb.
          Had 1,500 lady bugs deliverd from CA. the other day as the greenhouse is overrun with aphids. Havn’t been able to meditate out there cuz if i go in there the ladys are all over me. Not a problem i normally have.
          On a brighter note i had my PAX delivered yesterday. Sweet. The only way to go.

            Sorry?! There’s so much pent up energy swirling around here, I think she’s about to blow … snow all over the brownish landscape to make it look perdy again. Winter without snow is a waste of time in the Grate State of New Hamsta’. I am amped to do sum slippin’ and slidin’ down a piste or two.

            Regarding having 1,500 ladies bugging you, that’s just down rite masochistic, dude. I couldn’t meditate on how lint got stuck in my Buddha belly with that much cackling either.

            very twue. i had forgoten how it (snow) dresses up the brown and gray. Snow on the farm just meant more work getting the wood cut and the greenhouses cleaned off, and all the plowin, so it was mostly not fun fer me, plus it was generally colder the 60 degrees which i like to stay above!!

            hey, we got 2 inches last night!! Beat that puss.

          • C. dog e. doG

            About a foot, nothin’ like the flatfooted flatlanders got. Still fun to slide on, though.

    Rand Paul strikes the balance that could have got Ron Paul elected.

    • C. dog e. doG

      Ron likely surmised he had no chance to win on a platform of freedom in the Republican National Beauty Pageant, and was merely paving the way for deer sun (he’s purdier). Plus, Ron may still be right – as unbalanced as his views were; depends when the debt bubble … pops!
