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.

To combat the ability of terror groups to attract teenagers (note: there has only been one variety of terrorist doing this in the United States) the FBI has set up a website. It seems obviously incomplete
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES In almost all cases, when it comes to running an enterprise, most on the Right would agree that the private-sector can do a better job than the federal government. Moreover, in almost all cases, most on the Left would disagree with the above statement. So, why is it that the nation’s air traffic controllers’ union is ready to back | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This is what it is. A rumor. But it is a rumor sufficiently well-placed that Bill Kristol feels comfortable running with it: Trump 32; Cruz 26; Rubio 20; Bush 10; Carson 7; Kasich 2. Keep in mind this is not an internal campaign poll but one that will be published in the next day or so. Compare and contrast | Read More »
