We have a serious problem

The United States is at war and the general in charge of the prosecution of that war came before congress to report on the progress which is being made (which is significant) and the political party which controls congress insulted him and called him a liar. That political party's then went on to promise to do all in their power to undermine their nation's war effort and ensure that the enemy achieves victory.

The religious beliefs of the rulers of Iran tell them that paradise on earth can be achieved by means of an apocalyptic war. They are using their nation's oil wealth to develop nuclear weapons and they have all but promised to attack Israel with those weapons as soon as they can.

The leading candidate for the presidential nomination of the Democrat Party in involved in a major scandal involving her fund raising. The largest donor to Democrat politicians in recent years has been exposed as a con-man and wanted felon. This latest dirty-money episode simply continues the pattern of corrupt practices which characterized her husband's two terms in the White House. From all appearances Mrs. Clinton as president would be the bought-and-paid-for property of the Chinese communists just like Mr. Clinton was.

The price of oil just hit $80.00, a record high.

All of this and what is the most popular story on the Internet?

NEW YORK (Sept. 11) - The consensus is clear: Britney Spears performed like she was sloshing blindfolded through mud at MTV's Video Music Awards. No one disputes that the troubled pop princess royally mangled her much-heralded comeback. But what about the nastiest comments of all - those about her body? "Lard and Clear," read Monday's headline in the New York Post. "The bulging belly she was flaunting was SO not hot," wrote E! Online. And so on.

That's right. The American people are most concerned about the fact that a 26-year-old woman who has had two children isn't a size zero any more.

You may wonder what that metallic scraping sound is. It is the sound of 100,000,000 Islamic knives being sharpened.
