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 What is it with some people that when confronted with their own deception, they cannot just admit they are wrong? Everybody knows about Katie Couric and the documentary she produced that created a scenario within the film that never existed. In order to make a gun rights group appear stupid, Couric asked a question about felons getting guns. There | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES In these ever darkening days in post-constitutional America, I will take every sign of dissent, however big or small, wherever I chose to see it. I saw one yesterday. I, of course, know nothing of him, his convictions, or his politics but, yesterday, it warmed heart when, instead of delegating the job as powerful and prudent business “people” are prone | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Remember when Hillary Clinton had her initial press conference about her email? She was adamant in saying that she had neither sent or received any classified materials on her private email account. As the inspector general started to go through her emails, it was noted that she did indeed send and receive classified materials. That is when her language | Read More »
