Is North Korea Responsible?

There are two possibilities:

North Korea is responsible for the SONY attack.  If so, they deserve the difficulty that they are having now.

North Korea is not responsible for the SONY attack.  Then they do not deserve the difficulty they are having now at least for the SONY incident.

A third party could be responsible for the SONY attack and be responsible for the attack against North Korea.

There are lots of possibilities.

Certainty only exists when only one party has the capabilities necessary to perform an act.

I suspect the US is responsible for North Korea's current difficulties.  It's much more pleasurable for President Obama to deal with that than it is for him to deal with two NYPD policemen murdered over the weekend.

The timing was just a few minutes after Barack Obama's claiming that by any measure 2014 was a good year.

Police killings were way up over the whole country in 2014.

Shouldn't it be CINC Obama rather than the FBI

The Huffingpost is reporting that the FBI is accusing North Korea of the Sony attack.

Shouldn't it be CINC Obama?


Several years ago I learned that a way to combat terrorism was to punish a worthy to be punished party for one of these international incidents.


If you punished the wrong party, there were two parties that knew you were wrong:


1) the one you punished (you should pick a worthy one)

2) the guilty party.


If the guilty party speaks up (convincingly), you punish them.


Nearly all people can believe that the guilty party has been punished after step 1.  In the past, we have had a tremendous advantage in terms of identification and verification sources.


I can now see how this can be applied to police work.


1)  Round up the usual suspect

2)  Punish someone worthy of punishment


Johnny Cash has a song about man being executed for a murder that he didn't do.  His mother knew that he was innocent of the murder because he was robbing a train that day.  I think the character had killed a number of people.


The crime and punishment were justified.  They were associated with the wrong victim.

No Fault -- No Alimony

Florida became a "no fault" state in Dissolution of Marriage proceedings in 1971.

A truly no fault dissolution of marriage should only address a  Fair and Equitable distribution of assets (and liabilities).

I am a victim of Domestic Abuse and Elder Abuse.

My partner made unilateral decisions concerning the religiously oriented activities our two daughters should receive.  That is classic Male Privilege.

My partner has Master's Degree from an out-of-state private university.  Her three skills that I have observed are:

1.  She is good at obtaining volunteers
2.  She's very generous with someone else's money
3.  She is good at church history.

These are appropriate skills for a Director of Christian Education (DCE).

Women are no longer limited to a DCE role; they can now compete in and for the pulpits.

Following advice that she later regretted, my partner filed for divorce in April 2009.  The matter has not been settled.

I have seen and been victimized by the best divorce lawyer in Brevard County, Diane Baccus-Horsley.  She President Obama look like a truth teller.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel Fired

Vice President Joe Biden is the Obama Administration's Counter-Terrorism (CT) rather than Counter-Insurgency (COIN) advocate.

POTUS can't fire VPOTUS.

Secretary Hagel was the first enlisted man to serve as Secretary of Defense.  He was a far cry from Secretary Donald Rumsfelt.

Michelle Obama is the right person to replace Hagel.

She probably has more clout than Joe Biden.
