Wracked with angst over the fate of our beloved and horribly misgoverned Republic, the DiploMad returns to do battle on the world wide web, swearing death to political correctness, and pulling no punches.
My great retirement-from-retirement plan not having worked out, I was idly surfing the net reading about the apparent and "surprising&...
Sorry if this generates a rant Diplomad Sir.http://assembly.state.ny.us/leg/?default_fld=&bn=A02388&term=2013&Summary=Y&Text=YArkie
Oh Great DIplomad, the following has come to my attention:The following Muslim Brotherhood operatives either hold positions in the Obama (Peace Be Upon Him) administration or have direct access to the president (PBUH):Arif Alikhan, Assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development;Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council;Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference;Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC);Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); andEboo Patel, a member of President Obama's (PBUH)Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.http://www.investigativeproject.org/3869/egyptian-magazine-muslim-brotherhood-infiltratesIn addition President Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH) is giving billions of dollars in US aid to the Muslim Brotherhood who now have patched up their differences with Al Qaeda and are now actively supporting them in Egypt, Syria and Benghazi.This presents the curious spectacle that Obama (PBUH) who killed Osama (MHRIH) and defeated Al Qaeda (TMF)s is now bringing Al Qaeda (TMF)s back for us.What are your thoughts on this betrayal of our nation by Obama (PBUH)Oh Great Diplomad?Pork Eating Crusader David Salter Rio IL
And on the same subject matter, a highly recommended reading, online book and commentaries involving Ali Sina, a brave Patriot, here is a fantastic online downloadable book, with all the truths in one location for anyone's edification, and increase in knowledge: http://www.islamreform.net/new-page-151.htmJackThe tension builds for the next rant, breathlessly we, oh Great Diplomad 2.0, await your informative, neigh, entertaining, next scribe....
Perhaps Diplomad still has contacts that can opine on this report from Nightwatch. I hope this is not true, but the Obama misadministration has not done anything to inspire confidence in their competence. Please tell me again how much treasure (to be looted from future generations) this government is spending to ARM the Afgans. Just think of the mayhem the Islamokooks can spread when they get this stuff!"Afghanistan: For the record. Over the weekend NightWatch learned that some analysts in Kabul judge that every Afghan administrative district handed over to Afghan control for the purposes of providing security has been, in fact, handed over to Taliban control."By the way, PBUH = Put Bomb Under Hood?
Dip:No need to apologize. Everyone is entitled to a life. At least every retired FSO is.
Ditto that one. Life happens sometimes.
Ditto, Dip, you just open the thread, go have a rest, and we'll just run away with it entertaining ourselves while teacher's away. Ho, Ho, Ho?Jack
Ok, Diplomad, time for part two of Obama's diplomatic successes. You can begin with any of the relevant headlines. Amercians kidnapped in Algeria, or 23 executive orders (I am sure if anyone can, you can find the relevance with dictators around the world being impressed with Obie's foot upon our necks).So, time to get off the treadmill, (after Christmas workouts) and exercise your fingers on the keyboard, and compose your extraordinarily insightful and humourous literary skills. Don't make me come to California with a cattle prod looking for you! Surely you know what that is??!!!!
Well my gosh! That can't be good when the natives are showing signs of gettin' restless. Must be withdrawal settin' in. Until ETR came on the scene, I hadn't known there was an East Texan, previously I only knew of West Texas, and Central Texas. Wow, I'm impressed, stand corrected and all that. I see they can even be needally, "cattle prods" indeed! Heh. Hey Dip, withdrawal appears to be commencing. Heads up!Jack.....
Gates of Vienna is down.I'm guessing Obama Googled.Arkie
Go to Vlad Tepes at: http://vladtepesblog.com/ for latest info on Gates of Vienna, which Vlad states: "It could be a technical glitch or an attack of some kind or active editorial actions by Blogger."Jack
GoV is returned.Something of a mystery it would appear.Arkie
Dear Diplomad,I am ETR and in an effort to be humorous I used a rancher's lexicon (yes,we are educated ranchers, for some that is an oxymoron--for many consider folks who live in the country as rednecks.My joking about a cattle prod (also called a "hot shot" or "persuader" is simply a taser for cows. It is an incentivizer to get a move on.I did not mean to offend or horrify anyone. It is winter and the days on the ranch are cold and chores unpleasant. Before that has never bothered us, we've had many a hard winter but this winter, for many who love this land is "the winter of our discontent." And I fear it is the beginning of many more.And as for E. Texas--folks who really love this place call it "the piney woods." And I was born in South Texas, raised in the hill country (LBJ's home town) and also lived in West Texas. And each region is unique and wonderful.So, I do hope you get back to writing. You lift our spirits, give us one more reason to carry on, as the Brits say, and give words to our thoughts. Be blessed,The East Texas Rancher
My apologies, ETR, if I appeared to have taken offense, I surely did not mean to imply that. I had hoped my "heh" at the end showed my humorous take on the whole piece. I had hoped I was pokin' gentle fun at your existence, as I never met an ETR before, and your fine prodder remark.I've had a farm background, myself, and follow a rancher family blog, 'cause I enjoy and miss that kind of life so much. I'm even a fine fan of Temple Grandin, whose methods I applaud.I'm even more chagrinned to hear of your "winter of discontent". I feel we are all in such, these years, and are doing are best to simply "carry on" until we meet again, perhaps in our "Barkley Square" in that good time when America can bloom again.I hope that slight reminisce of the great Brit song, helps to put some warmth to this less than stellar winter....And to put a bit o' sweet Brit warmth, here is Katherine Jenkins singing A Nightingale Sang and more,try: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAoBXKRYq9c from 2005, a good year, and this one from 2007, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzDOE4sR3UA I Who Have Nothing, and another beauty, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjcpJXTujeA She has had her trials, undeserved, in life, sadly, too. And she remains world class, as a Welchman.......Hope all enjoy this charmer...Jack
