Savannah and the 'P' word


I read your article about the "Savannah Tax". You did an excellent job of articulating the pervasive perspective that I have encountered in the 2 years I have lived in Savannah.

I have never been in a city where the word Potential was so broadly used. To make matters worse, no one can articulate a vision of what fulfillment of this potential would look like. If there is no vision and no plan, what is really achievable?

Even more discouraging is those natives that have moved away that have a disdain for the city. Outsiders are unwanted and young people want to move away as soon as they graduate high school.
What is the establishment's desired outcome given the above referenced?

Obama appeasement


President Obama is making mistakes impacting our foreign policy.

The Administration tried appeasement when it declared Chavez’s president-for-life referendum was “for the most part…..a process that was fully consistent with a democratic process."

The Administration looked the other way when Russia pressured Kyrgyestan to shut down a valuable U.S. air base.

In Turkey Obama said “The United States is not, and never will be, at war with Islam”, which is true, but he should have stated the U.S. will pursue Islamic terrorists.

The President warned North Korea it would suffer “consequences” if it went ahead with the launch of a long range missile, but North Korea snubbed the U.S. and launched the missile on a 2000 mile run.  Also, North Korea recently restarted its nuclear weapons development program.

President Obama attempted to charm Iran, but Iran’s parliament speaker rebuked our President and told him the U.S. has to acknowledge 60 years of crimes against Iran, change our policies, and abandon Israel.

Obama is making reconciliation overtures to Cuba, but Cuba is negotiating to allow Russian warships and aircraft to refuel at Cuban bases; and Russia might be allowed to reopen an electronic intelligence gathering operation in Lourdes.

Appeasing and apologizing (for nothing) to these totalitarian countries is interpreted as groveling weakness by the Administration, and it is jeopardizing our national security.
