So the Olympics are going to Rio, Brazil. Despite the personal intervention of Obama and his wife, and Oprah. The "Child of the World" has just been given a collective time out.
There's a bigger lesson to be learned here. Losing the Olympics is part of something greater. Many describe it as the "Post-American" era. Obama basically ran on the platform. He's spent he time abroad endorsing the idea with his constant apologies and "humble" attempts to reach out.
But what Obama, (And the left in general) seems to miss is that humility, in geo-politics projects weakness. And weakness creates chaos.
Politics is nothing more than pre-combat, combat. Politics is war in the post-Neanderthal world of modern humans. After we lose our political war with another nation, then we can move on to the physical combat.
That is not to say diplomacy isn't vital. However, diplomacy from a weak position is interpreted as such. You must have not only the ability, but the will to back your position with real, tangible power.
Obama ran on the Post-American platform. Pledging to put America firmly in it's place as simply one nation among many. And that's what he did.
Post-American doesn't mean we still rule the roost. And that is something Obama should think long about before he addresses the world again.

I've noticed a pattern. All these lefty's who can't wait to jump on people with any sort of moral compass seem to be incapable of honoring their marriage vows.
This weeks loser is liberal late night host, David Letterman. Letterman, a husband and father, announced he's been sleeping with Several female employees. What a winner.
Perhaps the reason why people like Letterman love to trash people with morals is because they simply do not have any of their own.
[Edit: O.K. so I thought more on this and I have started to see an even broader pattern emerging. People with no moral compass, criminals, dirt bags, pond scum, etc. are inherently sympathetic towards other like-minded individuals. Because they lack any moral standing of their own, they cannot comprehend it in others. This would explain why lefty's like Letterman can bash someone like Palin, for having some moral standing while simultaneously violating their marriage vows. This is also the same reason why so many lefty's have come out in support of child rapist Polanski. They must support this type of behavior while ridiculing moral behavior, because in doing so, they validate their own backwards reasoning.]

If not there will be a shut down of the Michigan state government for a second time in two years.
Unbelievable. It's little wonder that we're in the worst shape out of every state in the union.
If you are camping, have to renew your tags and plates, or have any other business with the state, you may find yourself SOL tomorrow morning.
More to follow as it becomes available.....
[ Edit: It's 12:53 A.M. and they're still in session at the capital. Watch live video feed here. ]
[ Edit: Well it looks like they provided a temporary budget until they can iron out the remaining details. Sad that such a wonderful state is run by such incompetent buffoons. ]
From my home state of Michigan:
"IRVING TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Each day before the school bus comes to pick up the neighborhood's children, Lisa Snyder did a favor for three of her fellow moms, welcoming their children into her home for about an hour before they left for school.
Regulators who oversee child care, however, don't see it as charity. Days after the start of the new school year, Snyder received a letter from the . warning her that if she continued, she'd be violating a law aimed at the operators of unlicensed....Granholm spokeswoman Liz Boyd said the agency was following standard procedure in its response."
This is why too much government is bad, and more government is ALWAYS a bad idea.
