1959 – Cuba – Fulgencio Batista, dictator, militarist led a corrupt and repressive regime. An American puppet, but hardly a democrat. Seeds of discontent disturb the Cuban countryside and soon the streets of Havana – America stands largely silent. After a couple intermediate steps, who emerges from the rudderless revolution? Fidel Castro – dictator, militarist, communist, who has led a corrupt and repressive regime for more than 50 years. Sound familiar? Lost amidst American media celebration that the ‘tyrant’ Mubarak has been shown the door in Cairo is the realization that America, Egypt and the world don’t know what comes next? If America stays silent and on the sideline, we shouldn’t be surprised by what results and, understand, we may not like it.
So we have a Director of National Intelligence who says that the ‘Muslim Brotherhood’ is now largely a secular organization? Let me repeat – Obama’s Director of National Intelligence has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a secular, i.e. non-religious, organization. The oxymorons in the last sentence shouldn’t be lost on anyone, and neither should the moron.
Saul Anuzis may want to run for the U.S. Senate from my great state of Michigan. While Saul Anuzis would make a terrific United States Senator, he has a tremendous name ID issue here in Michigan. He would do well to follow Rick Snyder’s early TV blitz in the Great Lake state in order to overcome that obvious deficiency. You can hear the reprise now – “Saul Anuzis, One Tough Lithuanian.”
CPAC delegates would do well in their straw-polling to deviate from their strict liturgical approach to presidential preference. Ron Paul? Are you kidding me? Now, there are clearly things which Representative Paul states that I agree with – perhaps, many. But, he is not electable. Period. It is time that CPAC delegates realize that their discernment is two tiered – find 1) a conservative, and 2) make damn sure that he or she is electable. For the second year in a row, CPAC has miserably failed in this cause.
It’s been a good long while since I’ve blogged – personal matters, etc. demanded my attention – but in case you didn’t know – Guantanamo, GITMO, the Caribbean Pokey . . . is still open. One year, Mr. President? One year, my arse.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES It’s pathetic how quickly some people will change their minds. Rick Perry was one of the first Republicans to stand up and say, “No” when Donald Trump burst on to the scene. He recognized Trump for the fraud that he is and although he had to drop out early, he knew told people what damage Trump would do to | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Two days after the Republican Primary basically ended, the #BATF guys will be on live to basically just drink and see who can die of alcohol poisoning first. As we slowly begin to lose our minds and our lives, watch us talk about Donald Trump’s win, the lessons we have all learned, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, and so much | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Remember Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Bill Shuster? The head of the House Transportation Committee who is pushing a bill to hand air traffic control to a bunch of airline industry cronies and unions, and doing it in a way that looks like it would allow them— not Congress— to raise your taxes if they think that’s neat and cool? The guy | Read More »
