Foreign policy quick notes

I was never a big fan of Chuck Hagel.  The man the president picked to be his Secretary of Defense, a Republican, has abandon ship Obama. But I don't think I should be surprised he lasted this long.  

And on a related topic, if you think there was no smoke or fire in the Benghazi scandal, you should read this.

If an Executive Action falls in the forest

So if the president does't have to listen to Congress, and can do whatever he wants, does that mean government agencies don't have to listen to the president?  Theoretically speaking

Shout out to Left Coast Rebel

I haven't posted over at Left Coast Rebel in a while, something I hope to remedy in December once my vacation time starts.  But it's worth reading every day, I encourage you to check it out.

On Bill Cosby

It's odd that Bill Cosby has been vilified so quickly for allegations of rape and sexual assault decades ago, given his positive public image over the past several decades.  It's not clear at this point what really did or did not happen with respect to these allegations, and if they are true, that's terrible. But whatever happened to the notion of "innocent until proven guilty"?

Just asking.

Sunday Verse

For there is hope for a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that its shoots will not cease. Though its root grow old in the earth, and its stump die in the soil, yet at the scent of water it will bud and put out branches like a young plant.
~Job 14:7-9
