Despicable that Obama siding with al-Qaeda
I invite anybody to show me exactly where I am wrong in thinking that America has plunged to the depths of depravity by not rising up in a tidal wave of anger and moral outrage over the most despicable act in the current political setting.
No, I am not referring to the criminal act of the Obama administration's criminal gun-running activities in which hundreds of Mexican citizens were killed as were two Americans agents by those weapons in the hands of cartels. No indictments were forthcoming as we move on.
No, I'm not referring to Obama's drone execution of an American citizen suspected of terrorist ties in the of circumvention of due process.
Again, I'm not writing of the outright execution of four Americans at Benghazi, Libya, and the absolute lack of accountability of that onerous event.
The singularity of any of those events dwarfs the simplistic and naive outrage of the Nixonian era of Watergate.
The act to which I refer and attach a scathing rebuke is the action of so-called President Obama in his arming and siding with our former mortal enemy, al Qaeda, which has irrefutable ties with the so-called Syrian rebels attempting to overthrow the dictator Bashar Assad.
The blood of patriots down through the ages rebukes the actions of the Obama administration, who, along with a significant number of the 112th Congress, have now placed us in a no-win involvement in the Syrian civil war.
How much more despicable does it get than that the current occupant of the White House, after 12 years of blood letting and countless billions of dollars fighting jihadist organizations including al Qaeda, now join in a blood oath pact with a former enemy to overthrow the leader of a country with whom we have no security interests?
The blood of our fallen warriors cries out for national indignation on a scale of historic proportion with Obama's waiver of law prohibiting the supplying of arms to a designated enemy.
By waiving the law, the Arms Export Control Act, sec. 40 and 40a, he has sided squarely on the side of the "rebels"and demonstrated his vision of America's national security being threatened by the al Basshar regime. This action is sedition on steroids.

Enea's weak excuse not to disclose addresses
Regarding Mayor Rich Enea's concern about the addresses of correctional and police officers being released ("Water rate hike has its critics," Sept. 19), I believe someone needs to take our mayor to task.
Maybe the next time Mr. Enea claims he should have special rights because he is a retired law enforcement officer he should check the California laws first. Maybe he should call someone at the county before he opens his mouth.
True, Rich, if I wanted to know your parcel number I could do a little homework at the county and find it.
California also has public information laws, too.
Maybe Linda Sutter is right. Maybe it's time for a change. Vote out the old fools, time for new ones.
