... Why can’t the Saudis’ give them welfare money?

Ah to be sure the S'aud government does provide welfare money to the Egyptian people.  The King of S'aud Arabia is King Abdullah.  In Aribic his name means Allah's or God's Slave.  King Abdullah via the Saudi kingdom funds Madrases a.k.a. religious of parochial schools in Egypt.

I vote to let somebody else be the puppet master for a while…


Oh, we are Blue, we are letting someone else do it.  That is the potential problem, who we are allowing to do what ever they like.

Makes you wonder what we are really supporting with our backing of the Islamic revolutions...


http://news.yahoo.com/insight-minority-militias-stir-fears-sectarian-war-damascus-173150673.html

“(This story was reported for Reuters by an independent journalist, whose name is withheld for security reasons)
DAMASCUS (Reuters) - For months, most of Syria's minority sects stood warily on the sidelines of the revolt by the Sunni Muslim majority against President Bashar al-Assad's Alawite-dominated rule.

But in Damascus, neighborhood vigilante groups are arming themselves in Christian, Druze and Shi'ite Muslim areas, throwing up sectarian borders across Syria's capital in alliance with Assad's forces.

"We protect our area from terrorists. We check all the cars coming in, and anyone we're suspicious of," says Sameer, 32, one of four men with rifles sipping tea under a stone archway in the Christian quarter of the historic old city.

By "terrorists" Sameer, a cab driver with the Virgin Mary and a cross tattooed on his arms, means the mostly Sunni rebels who have fallen back to an arc of suburbs on the eastern outskirts after fierce battles with Assad's forces in July.

Residents fear that far from protecting them, the self-styled popular committees have merely made them targets.

"It's not a matter of whether they become militias. They are militias already," said a 20-year-old who lives in the old city …”

And the beat goes on.... and on.... and on.... and .....oh never mind...

What did Obama mean when he asked the Russians to give him more room to maneuver?

Is this what he had in mind.  Now Egypt is telling us, no not asking us to pass the collection plate for the Muslim Brotherhood.  You beeks better dump your honey on the market and turn over all the Shekels you raise to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood.  


http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/28/egyptian-cleric-says-american-aid-mandatory-tax/

A prominent Egyptian cleric said U.S. aid to Egypt is a mandatory tribute that America must pay to honor the Muslim Brotherhood  and the Egyptian revolution.

This taxpayer aid constitutes a “poll tax” that America must pay to placate the Muslim Brotherhood, according to Khaled Said, a cleric who serves as the official spokesman for the country's Salafi Front, an extremist political party that has called for Islamic law in Egypt.  “They pay so that we will let them be,” Said stated in a recent interview on Egyptian television.  Said’s remarks come on the heels of Secretary of State John Kerry’s announcement that the United States has allocated another $250 million in aid to Egypt.  

If the revolution declares a framework for dealing with the West and America — they will accept it, kiss our hands, and double the aid they give us, Said said during his television appearance, according to a translation of his remarks by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

We consider this aid to be jizya [a poll tax], not regular aid.

I hope you people are happy with Obama's "RE-SET" in US Arab relations.

For if Obama and his functionaries like Senators Hillary Clinton and John Kerry do not know or understand the mindset of the foreign nations they deal with, then these functionaries are unqualified to hold the high offices they now occupy.  If on the other hand these functionaries know and understand how the Muslim Brotherhood thinks and then blindly fords ahead, pulling us behind them into ever deeper water, then their actions are TREASON and they deserve to be prosecuted to the full extent of the laws that they have willfully violated.

It's a gamechanger for the public to stop assuming the public servants are ignorant or unaware of what they are doing.

Many saw this when we turned our back on Mubarak.  We showed once again we will not support our allies when the chips are down.  It is no wonder the Muslim Brotherhood would expect all money and positive talk to keep flowing from Washington.  Recent history supports their view.

... All revolutions (well almost all revolutions) ends up fighting multiple wars... to keep the revolutionaries in power by setting up straw men to distract the population...

I have it on fairly good authority that on or about the first week in February 2012 an unsuccessful assassination attempt was made on North Korea's Weakling turned Strongman Kim Jong Un.  This supposedly resulted in a 30 minute fire fight between rival factions in the North Korean Army/Government. 

IMHO, The saber rattling, saber whetting, drawing, and banishing that North Korea is currently involved with is an attempt by Kim Jong Un to implement the policy outlined by me in the above quote.  butt kick 

The stroke of genius is that Kim is perpairing to use the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corp to discipline his army and purge his armed forces of dissident elements.  At the same time Kim will "show" his civilian population that he was right about the USA all along.  Then win loose or draw, when the white flags go up Kim will emerge in a much stronger position.  But hey, you and I will get the honor or maybe it is the horror of paying for it out of our 401k retirement accounts and/or in our children's blood.  "We asked for it and we got it."  So sorry!

+ N Korea provides a neat distraction from what's going on in Iran.  we may have a little bit of N. Korea playing Japan to Irans Germany.  we can't fight on two fronts...we are in much the same position we were in pre-WW2 with the added negatives of unions and OSHA.  we'd never be able to do today, what we did then.

I you know like the above quote better this way.

"You Know" Here is a little "You Know" video of an interview that Obama's "You Know" new Ambassador to "You Know" Japan gave when she was running for "You Know" New York's U.S. Senator a few "Like You Know years ago.
To be honest the interview was originally 30 minutes long and this is a triangulated version of her "You Know" interview.  But do be mindful of this, The person conducting the interview consumed 10 minutes or more of the time asking the like "You Know" questions.  That means like you know 45 you knows in 20 minutes or less. The rest of the world are pointing their fingers and laughing at us behind your "Like You Know" back.  Enjoy.

...... we are in much the same position we were ...pre-WW2 with the added negatives of unions and OSHA.  we'd never be able to do today, what we did then.


A larger share of the work force was unionized in 1941 than are unionized today.  The difference is the Federal Government's commitment to the national defence and the general welfare or the common good, plus the work ethic of the American worker that makes the differance.  On 12/07/1941 Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.  On December 10, 1941 Hitler declared war on the USA and soon after Germany launched unrestricted submarine warfare on two of America's three coasts.  

At that time all Texas and Oklahoma crude oil destined for the East Coast was shipped in tanker ships. In the month of May 1942 alone, 56 US Ships were sunk by Uboats in the Gulf of Mexico, most of them oil tankers.  Between February 1942 and May of the same year German Uboats also sank 348 US ships in the Atlantic Ocean.  This is a total of 404 ships sent to Davey Jones Locker in only 4 months.  Today it takes the USA longer than 4 months to name the next U. S. Navy war ship.

Despite early opposition the USA finally decided to build a pipeline from the Texas-Oklahoma oil fields to today's Rust Belt.  One pipeline was named the Big Inch Pipeline and was 24 inches in diameter.  A companion pipeline named the Little Big Inch Pipeline was laid beside the Big Inch pipeline.  The Little Big Inch Pipeline was for refined products.  Together they transported 490,000 barrels per day of petroleum to America's East Coast to help power the American war effort.  Counting the feeder lines running to the well heads and Gulf Coast refineries the Big inch and the Little Big Inch Pipelines stretched for over 6,000 miles.  By September 10 1942 there were 8 pipe laying crews at work after a contract was signed in June.  By August 17 1943 the final weld was made in New Jersey and soon afterwards oil began to flow.  This pipe line is still in operation almost 70 years later.

The Keystone Pipeline was first proposed in early 2005.  After the final 3 years of the Bush Administration and after the first 5 years of the Obama Administration there is still not even a final route chosen.  The current administration is always bad mouthing our energy policy and saying that we are at risk if we depend on Middle Eastern potentates for our Petroleum needs.  Earth to Space Ship Barry... Come in Barry!  Flash communication arriving... Canada is not in the Middle East, nor is it one of the 57 states you visited, Rodger Dodger Barry, over and out.  I just thought that you would like to know in case Obama tries again to lay the blame on that POOR little Connticut WASP Yale frat boy G. W. Bush.

For you who may be wondering who is behind the case of the slows that the Keystone Pipeline is infected with here is an partial list of the guilty parties, no usual suspects here, Lennox Yearwood, Chief Jacqueline Smith, Van Jones, Crystal Lameman, Michael Brune, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI),  and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont).  The latter Senator is one of at least two current US Senators who openly call themselves Marxist.

Now tell me you wouldn't be speaking low German today or looking for a menorah to smash if the Big and Little Big Inch Pipelines had never been laid.

Oh, inorder to prove to you that today's Democrat Party is not your Grand Daddy's Democrat party the Democrat party functionary in charge of building the Big Inch and the Little Big Inch Pipelines was FDR's Secretary of the Interior, one Harold Ickeys.  Does the name ring a bell?  It should.

"Ickes grew up a political scion who hated politics. Born in Washington and raised on a 250-acre farm in Maryland, he is the son of Harold LeClair Ickes ("Old Curmudgeon" to his friends), FDR's interior secretary, an architect of the New Deal's Public Works Administration, and the longest-serving cabinet member in American history..."

Ickes has worked on a slew of presidential campaigns— Eugine McCarthy's in 1967, Jimmy Carter's in 1976, Ted Kennedy's in 1980, Walter Mondale's in 1984, Jesse Jackson's in 1988.  In 1992 Ickes landed in the wet and warm embrace of Bill and Billary Clinton.  It was in 1996 while working for Bill and Billary Clinton that Ickes invented the political strategy of unlimited "Soft Money" donations to political campaigns.  Infact it was ickes' and his unlimited soft money donations along with Bill and Billary Clintons' ethics or the lack there of, jail that are responsible for well known Democrat talking head Dick Morris bolting the Democrat Party.  

Harold Ickes father (the longest serving cabinat member of any political party in history) brushed aside all opposition both political, and physical to built an oil pipeline to help the United States stay independent.  Now the same Democrat Party is Hell bent on insuring that we become a vassal state to S'aud Arabia, Egypt, or both.  I can get you beeks a good deal on a Muslim prayer rug or a burka for your wife, PM me. lau

I wish to think Mother Jones for the back ground information or Harold 'Ickey' the younger.  There is nothing like going directly to the horse's mouth to get the lowest information on the Democrat Party.

Every time I find the Nation of Islam hawking news papers on a street corner I pony up a dollar for one.  You can't pay a spy's bus fare that cheaply. 

Some here are confusing Conservatives with the Tea Party or worst.  If you'll only read the Nation of Islam's news paper Final Call just once you will never need to sit through another boaring Tea Party meeting ever again.  The Tea Party is just the Nation of Islam dressed up in White Face.

OK, I will bite.  How in the world is the TEA Party movement anything like the Nation of Islam?  Seems a ludicrous statement on its face, though I'm sure you have a long and interesting explanation.  I do agree that the TEA Party is more libitarian than conservative.
