Pentagon allows suppression of military vote
In a rather bizarre move (okay, who am I kidding - it was all expected), Pentagon allowed 5 states to ignore the law that protected the right of American armed forces to vote. The Move Act was written in such a way as to guarantee that American soldiers would have access to the voting ballots in time to be able to cast their vote. But apparently, the government bureaucracy understood that military vote could seriously weaken the President and his lackeys in Congress, and the states pushed the military for waivers. Currently, 5 states received the waiver from Pentagon - and these states are: Delaware, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Washington. As luck would have it - four out of five are run by Democrats - while only half of American governors were elected as Democrats. It is also quite coincidental that American military vote Republican, and - if you still believe in coincidences, our current president is a Democrat, and his lackeys are in control of Pentagon. It is also estimated that the suppression of military votes may have a considerable influence on the 2010 elections in some states - in short, it would benefit the Democrats. And this long list of coincidences reminded me of a quote from the movie "Godfather":
Tom, don't let anybody kid you. It's all personal, every bit of business. Every piece of shit every man has to eat every day of his life is personal. They call it business. OK. But it's personal as hell. You know where I learned that from? The Don. My old man. The Godfather. If a bolt of lightning hit a friend of his the old man would take it personal. He took my going into the Marines personal. That's what makes him great. The Great Don. He takes everything personal Like God. He knows every feather that falls from the tail of a sparrow or however the hell it goes? Right? And you know something? Accidents don't happen to people who take accidents as a personal insult.I think it's the right time when American conservatives start treating accidents as a personal insult. I hope in January, when GOP takes over Congress, they listen to the voices of reason and start investigating what's going on in the White House, how the stimulus money, the TARP money was spent and what happened to Democrats who voted for the Obamacare. Let's turn on the light and see who starts running.
Obama is targeting your 401(k)
It's been prophesied that at some point liberals will try to nationalize your savings. Well, it seems like the Obama administration decided that there will never be a better moment. As Turkish from the movie "Snatch" would say:
Obama is gonna exploit the situation. He's gonna pull the taxpayer pants down, grease him up... and aim for penetration.The U.S. Department of Labor is planning to have joint hearing with the Department of the Treasury on whether government life-time annuity options funded by U.S. Treasury debt should be required for private retirement accounts, including IRAs and 401(k) plans. In short, Obama wants to nationalize 401(k) and IRA. After all, someone has to fund his expensive habits (and I am not talking about the trips to Spain and the golf games and the rock-star concerts in the White House). The usual suspects - government unions, interest groups are already on board - after all they need government funding too and someone has to pay for that. More details can be found here.
Ground Zero Hamasque may get government funding
As expected, the promoters of Hate-mosque on Ground Zero can now safely rely on getting government some government help. According to El Reuters: "The Muslim center planned near the site of the World Trade Center attack could qualify for tax-free financing, a spokesman for City Comptroller John Liu said on Friday, and Liu is willing to consider approving the public subsidy."
After all, our country is in tip-top financial state, we can afford to build a extremist mosque on the ground where 3,000 Americans were slaughtered by moslem terrorists. Obviously, if we refuse to do that, moderate moslems will conclude that we are being islamophobic and they will very likely join Al Qaeda and try to kill us. Those moderate moslems are a very touchy bunch - peaceful, of course, but short-tempered as hell. Someone may even say they have an explosive temper - and we better not tempt them. As for me - I am waiting until American people fulfill Churchill's prediction "The Americans will always do the right thing . . . After they've exhausted all the alternatives." And by simple elimination we will find what we need to do. And again, I need to quote Turkish from the movie "Snatch":
It had previously occurred to me...Well, the Moslem fundamentalists may think that Americans have taken the destruction of the World Trade Center and deliberate murder of 3,000 innocent civilians rather lightly. But as some history buffs know, an American reaction is quite a f*cking thing - just ask the Japs and the Krauts.
... that he'd taken the demise of his mother rather lightly.
For every action, there is a reaction.
And a pikey reaction...
... is quite a f*cking thing.
