Yah. I remember wondering how Bush Jr. found the time to go clear brush at the ranch every other weekend, especially in the summer of 2011, another busy time in the world.
Presidents are human beings with what has to be the most stressful job in the world, and having to be on call 24/7, 12 months of the year for a minimum of four years.
Thank goodness they all seem to have had the good sense to take some down time every once in a while to clear their brains.

PONTIAC, Mich. -
The city of Pontiac is saying "no" to Syrian refugees.
This decision comes a day after Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson asked the mayor and City Council to stop the support of housing Syrian refugees in buildings owned by Live In Pontiac LLC and Pontiac Community Investment LLC.
Patterson refers to the development as a Syrian refugee village...

GRAND RAPIDS, MI Mayor George Heartwell opened this morning's City Commission meeting with a prepared statement on the "senseless slaughter" in Paris perpetrated by "desperate and demented people."
He urged Grand Rapidians not to be afraid, and said that if the United States uses the attacks "to repel freedom-seeking people at our borders," then the terrorists win "and the end of the American soul cannot be far away."
Interesting that the Mali attacks has again revealed the location of special ops "boots on the ground' across a range of Continents.
Saw the ex CIA Director ( apols can't remember his name) on Newsnight last night saying that a huge increase in their numbers was needed.
Boots on the ground is naturally, very controversial. IDK what to think when I see a couple of days of remote air strikes have killed 400+ civililians, almost 100 of them being children.
Is a "remote" war ( air strikes, drones) that is so "inaccurate" a moral question?
And is it effective when ISIS are hiding amongst civilians they are using as shields? ( Lot of the military top brass expert opinion says air strikes simply will NOT work on their own.) And I say this knowing young guys who fought in our Middle Eastern wars lately, thankfully returned.
I don't have answers but I'm trying to find the right questions.
I note that applications to join the French Army have sky rocketed since the Paris attacks, to unprecedented levels, apparently.
My government is debating intensifying air strikes, our PM has long advocated this ,but with a major enquiry into our previous PM's involvement in the Iraqi war based on no-weapons-of mass-destruction with Mr Bush et al, it is clear why there is strong opposition.....
ISIS has 24-hour help desk for terrorists
"New reports detailing the activities of ISIS, which is responsible for the recent attacks on Paris, Beirut and for taking down a Russian passenger jet, reveal that the organization employs a 24-hour customer support service that can help out with various digital problems its members may have. The same tech-savvy group manning the round-the-clock service from locations around the world also created a manual the describes best-practices ISIS members should follow to thwart surveillance and hide their tracks online."
BIB Let's spare a thought for those 403 civilians, including 97 children, according to the monitor.[
That's a big problem with the bombing raids -- those civilian fatalities leave behind friends and family member who will have a deep, and deserved, hatred for the west. These military incursions are the greatest recruiting tool that ISIL or Al Qaeda could ever hope for.
