I can’t remember when a news story has aggravated me as much as the shitstorm in Afghanistan over the burning of copies of the Koran. You’ll note that I did not include the seemingly important word “inadvertent” to the describe the burning of the books. I’m sure it was inadvertent, but you know what? I really don’t give a shit whether it was inadvertent or not. American taxpayers bought those books, and I’ll be damned if I know why. You think anyone held captive in an Islamic country is given a Bible, courtesy of the state?
I’ve had Muslims and their goddamned “outrage” over this and that right up to my eyeballs. These illiterate pigs go nuts over the burning of Korans, and the President of the United States sends a groveling apology to Hamid Karzai. Well, that worked out real well. After the apology issued, two American officers were shot in the back of the head.
And now, (at least according to the Afghan National Website), NATO has agreed to publicly try “those responsible” for burning the Korans. So, that means that some GI who had the misfortune of pulling the garbage burning detail will stand trial because some Korans were in the trash? If The One permits such a travesty, he should immediately be impeached. I pity the military men and women who have to serve under this pathetic excuse for the Commander-in-Chief.
And yes, we should get the hell out of Afghanistan right now, and I mean right now. No phased withdrawal. I mean right goddamned now – and leave nothing useful behind. Further, not one dime of aid should find its way to that shithole.
Note that in the course of her snotty, juvenile speech (including the use of a prop), she referred to the joints in the necks of Republicans not permitting them to shake their heads from side to side (i.e. “no.”) I suppose today she would say that the joints in Republicans’ necks prevent them (“the party of ‘no’”) from shaking their heads up and down.
“[C]ontrary to his own opinion, he is the nation’s worst president. He is an arrogant, hyper-partisan, race-baiting, committed socialist — a man whose deliberate attempts to transform the nation into a banana republic, with pictures of himself on the side of every building, have been thwarted only by his need to win one more election.”
I was quite taken by the video of a self-described regular guy who is quite upset with the state of the government.
The link to the video came to me on the same day that we learn that Michelle *spit* Obama is about to fly away for a skiing vacay in Aspen, after having had a vacation in Hawaii about a month ago. I gather that no one in the White House has had the balls to have the “optics” discussion with Her Majesty.
I didn’t think it was possible for anyone in government to be more stupid and obnoxious than Nancy Pelosi, but it appears that California Congressturd Maxine Waters is just that. After referring to two congressional Republicans as “demons,” she reminds the audience that she will be the chairperson of the influential House Financial Services Committee. Chew on that for a minute.
This woman is a national embarrassment. I’m waiting to see if any democrat is willing to stand up and repudiate the bilge spewed by this moron.
