We are not surprised by the Moscow Subway attacks. We have an army of people who apologize and make excuses for this type of behavior. The truth is Muslims are more prone to oppress others than be oppressed. Do we see Tibetans, Coptic Christians or residents of Cuba behave like this? Even Muslims themselves do not rationalize this type of behavior. The war on terror starts with their leftist enablers at home.
The mania about militias is out of control. I am glad the Obama administration caught some knuckleheads that were more industrious than their commie counterparts and talked about killing cops. Then again we have terrorists in higher ed who were quite friendly with Obama. Lets see we have a group of people screaming about revolution and venerating cop killers like Joanne Chesimard and Mummia. Sorry, but the hypocrisy of an administration who sees nothing wrong with Bil Ayers is mind boggling.
My passport should arrive in a few weeks and then it is off to Guyana in the fall. I will enjoy some time in the rain forest. I will see about mobile posting from the forest. I may apply to cross into Suriname. I will be accompanied by locals and some coworkers and it promises to be fun. There are plenty of sites to see and I have a few friends with family there. Maybe I will grab a fedora and the whip and look for commies on the border of Hugo's crack empire. I might go try my hand at some local fishing in the rivers. There are huge fresh water turtles in the local rivers.
One of my thrills from my trip to GA was seeing Aligator Snapping Turtles and huge softshelled turtles in their natural habitat. I do not think we will be anywhere near an area where I can see
fresh water stingrays or the huge six water fresh water fish of the arapimus family.
On the CD player I still have what is kindly referred to as Beach Bum music. I enjoy the Ventures and some of classic instrumentals from the 60's like Miserlou, Out of Limits, Because they Were Young and the Beatnik Fly.
I will be spending some time with the beloved Rav Roov and his family of Beaker kids. I hate Passover and can't wait for it to be over. I will be taking another trip with the Guyanese community to NJ. We raise money for the local house of worship and have a great time. Maybe, in May I can talk Drummaster into letting have my car and I will visit Bushkill Falls or head to the Finger Lakes. I would like to see Watkins Glenn, the Oriskany Battle field and Fort Stanwix.
I made a trip to Ticonderoga and Fort William Henry in my days in VT. I would like to see the Northeast Kingdom again.
I am amazed at the warped perception of Tea Party events by self proclaimed America experts
at Harry's Place. It is fairly obvious that the authors of the post never attended an event and their knowledge is limited to the NYT a couple of trips to NYC and LA and a few readings of left wing blogs. I never saw any guns at a Tea Party event except those of local law enforcement officers. The amount of people arrested at such events if very low and meaningless in any comparison to so called Peace protests.
Today's rant is about unemployed types at such events. Unfortunately, in the age of Obama this is a real problem. However, the dolts in the UK fail to grasp that the protesters want government to focus on job creation, not mindless attempts to nationalize health care. Furthermore, I have yet to see a similar depiction of unemployed Peace protesters. Few Tea Party types are like the Folks at Code Pinko, UPJ and ANSWER and are professional activists with no outside source of income. Moreover, the media seldom if ever mentions the so called
"peace protests" are communist led and organized. The Truthers, Jew Obsessed types and arrests at the peace protests are seldom discussed in the NYT.
I lived in VT for three years and would not describe myself as an expert on Vermont. I am curious how folks in the UK proclaim themselves expert on American politics and our local talk radio shows without similar exposure to the events in question. A few trips to LA, NYC and reading some articles in the NYT and Salon does not qualify one as an expert on anything American.
The ugly American has been replaced by the obnoxious Euro. The obnoxious Euro is an expert on everything and thinks they are the moral center of the planet.
FYI When I visit Guyana I will be polite and not comment about local traditions or politics. A good visitor does not abuse the hospitality of the nation he visits. I would remind Euros visiting the USA to follow the example of the Japanese tourists who visit and are beloved and polite.
Sorry, but I do not seek to emulate the EU. America has its own traditions and culture. If I get around to visiting I would also show more class than the Euros who visit America. I will not offer
any opinions on local subjects and will be polite at all times.
