I still think the biggest mistake President George W. Bush made immediately after 9-11 was in not repealing the executive order banning the assassination of foreign leaders who desperately need and richly deserve a bullet from a high-powered U.S. sniper’s rifle right in the melon.
In fact, back in October 2002, then-White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischersaid, referring to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, “The cost of one bullet…is substantially less" than going to war.
Amen and hallelujah.
How many American servicemen and women would be alive today if “one bullet” had dealt with Saddam instead of the quagmire war we got ourselves into? After all, Hussein ended up dead anyway, right?
I’m not saying President Donald Trump should repeal the executive order and immediately deploy American sharp-shooters who are capable of putting one right between the eyes from a mile and half away.
I’m saying he should put that threat back on the table and give folks like that “loser” fat-boy in North Korea something else to think about when he threatens to “nuke” the United States.
As Fleischer said, one bullet is a much smaller cost to pay than every other option at our disposal.
So let it be written; so let it be done.

P.S. Trump Derangement Syndrome knows no bounds. The latest fake news kerfuffle involves the wife of Eric Trump, son of President Donald Trump.
According to a story today published by the anti-Trump newsblog POLITICO,Lara Trump is actively involved with the Beagle Freedom Project, an animal rights group that “has persuaded five states to pass laws requiring tens of thousands of dogs and cats to be made available for adoption instead of euthanized after research testing.”
“Lara Trump's support for the Beagle Freedom Project has alarmed researchers and leaders from the pharmaceutical industry,” POLITICO reported, “as well as other animal rights organizations who say studies involving dogs and cats are well regulated by the federal government.”
Trump-hate has now lowered itself to creating a controversy over dog adoptions. Unbelievable.

NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
Renewable energy lobbyists lack faith in renewable energy
(Victor Joecks) - If you have a superior product, you don’t need a government mandate. That’s why the claims made by “green” energy advocates ring hollow as they push (AB206) to increase Nevada’s renewable portfolio standard from 25 percent by 2025 to 50 percent by 2030.
Passing AB206 would be like saying you can have anything you want for breakfast as long as eggs make up 50 percent of your meal. Some choice.
But if renewable energy is everything its supporters claim, why are they afraid of free and open competition? If renewable energy really is cheaper than other forms of energy, you won’t need a mandate to make people buy it.
The Inevitable, Unsurprising GOP Surrender on ESAs is Right around the Corner
(Brent Jones) - Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval – who only begrudgingly went along with the ESA bill in 2015 in return for GOP votes for his largest tax hike in state history – chose not to ask for the full amount to fully fund the ESA program in his budget this year. Instead he only asked for $60 million – not even enough to fund half of the families who have already signed up.
We now have about a week to go in the 2017 session. And the ESA issue remains unresolved. As such, the end-of-session horse-trading and deal-making are now well under way. And if an article in Sunday’s Las Vegas Review-Journal turns out to be accurate, even more ESA families are going to get the shaft…as well as many of Nevada’s businesses!
