THE HUMPDAY GRUDGE

Posted by Pistol Pete

GREAT COMMENTS YESTERDAY!

I am always glad to see people sharing their thoughts here.Hopefully it will get more lurkers to get off the bench and get in the game.

I promise I will try not to be whiny,grumpy,cynical,depressing or bitchy….no guarantees

OK,CHRISSY:HERE’S THE STORY

When I was about 23 my sister and her roommate(cute,as I recall)decided to have a Halloween party.The caveat was men had to be dressed as women and vice versa.Frankly,I never wanted my vice versa.I wanted to use one of my mom’s dresses(she was a big woman) but she talked me into putting on one of my sister’s dresses.She borrowed a wig from her neighbor and gave me one of her bras with the…uh… ‘foam rubber enhancements’.I think they were called “falsies.” I put on a pair of sis’ pantyhose,but they only came up to the top of my thighs so I had to keep reaching down to yank them up.Why did people give me funny looks when I did that?I was driving a 1971 Barracuda with vinyl seats and tried driving without sitting all the way down because they were cold as hell.

There I was,smoking cigars and shooting pool trying to look as macho as possible under the circumstances.It’s really a challenge to play nineball with foam rubber missiles always in your way.Anyway,sis’ neighbor staggers in not in costume,and starts watching me.As my grandma would put it,he was so drunk he didn’t know if he was afoot or horseback.Finally,he came over and said, ‘who are you,sweetheart?’

I told him I was twice the man he’ll ever be and more woman than he’ll ever get.I decided it would be better to leave the party early than to have this creep wake up the next morning thinking a girl beat his ass.Although I still appreciate a beautiful woman in heels,that was my first and only foray into the twisted world of crossdressing.That’s it.True story.

FIRST,THEY CAME FOR THE CATHOLICS

There was a discussion on the radio this morning about Bozo cutting off Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements to non-compliant Catholic hospitals.Judging from the initial outrage Barky may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Explain it to me again, please.

The White House on Monday defended Vice President Joe Biden for saying that the Taliban isn’t an enemy of the United States.

According to the Vice President, the U.S. is on a dual track in Afghanistan — keep the pressure on Al Qaeda and support a government that is strong enough to “negotiate with and not be overthrown by the Taliban.”

So what you’re saying, Joe, is that the Taliban is the enemy of our ally, but not of us? [humming Twilight Zone theme]

Combat-disabled veteran and analyst Kerry Patton makes a case that the Vice President is kinda not wrong, since “talib” means “student” and, during his years serving in Afghanistan, he met many so-called “taliban” who fought on our side or didn’t fight at all.

He then castigates our “lazy American culture” that would rather label people than understand them.

Uhhhhhhhhh. Okay … except Biden was using the term “Taliban” in the same lazy, stupid American way the rest of us lazy, stupid Americans use it.

So the questions isn’t whether the “real” Taliban (whoever they might be) are our enemies, but whether the “people who are killing our allies and our troops” that lazy, stupid Americans like Joe Biden refer to as the Taliban should be considered our enemies.

I’m kinda thinking that when it comes to allies in a shootin’ war, the enemy of your ally is your enemy. But what do I know?

According to Mitt Romney:

“The Taliban harbored the terrorists who killed 3,000 Americans on Sept 11. The Taliban continues to wage war against us and our allies, a conflict in which we have lost over 1,800 troops. The Taliban receives arms and training from Iran. And the Taliban seeks to reinstate a tyrannical government that violently rejects basic notions of human rights and oppresses minorities. The Taliban is clearly a bitter enemy of the United States.”

Well, yeah.

According to the article linked below:

  • When our troops entered Afghanistan just weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, the country was ruled with an iron fist by a Taliban government that had provided safe haven to Osama bin Laden and crew for years.
  • Today, fewer than 200 Al Qaeda terrorists reportedly remain in the country and military officials say the primary attacks against U.S. forces in Afghanistan are being conducted by fighters loyal to the Taliban and the Taliban-tied Haqqani network, both of which are based out of neighboring Pakistan and freely cross the treacherous border.
  • According to Reuters, U.S. officials are busy negotiating with Taliban insurgents to end their violence and international terrorism against the government headed by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

Since I’m a lazy, stupid American AND a dumber than dirt, bitter clinging Republican, let me just restate this whole thing in small words that I can understand.

  • We’re negotiating with some group that most people seem to generally agree to call the Taliban.
  • This group once controlled Afghanistan and let al Qaeda hang out there for years while they planned 9/11.
  • This group isn’t the boss of Afghanistan any more, but wants to be, so they kill people, including our troops, some of whom are related to me personally.
  • This group should not be allowed to become the boss of Afghanistan again, because they would do what they did before — i.e., use it as a safe harbor for anti-American terror attacks.

Well. Joe Biden and Obama’s PR mouth piece may agree that this group is somehow not our “enemy”, but they’re for damn sure MY enemy.

Harumph.

It seems to me that, what with this negotiating thing going on, that Obama wants this “Taliban” group to stop killing people so that our troops can come home.

That way, he could brag on how he ended BOTH of the “stupid” wars that Bush started and get re-elected … never mind that we won the Iraq war before he won the election.

BUT … somehow we’re not supposed to call this “Taliban” group our “enemy” because … what? It might make them feel bad and then they might not want to play nice enough for the troops to come home in time for Obama to brag about what a whiz bang world leader he is and get re-elected?
