Snicker.   Having skipped out on the speech and the after event “analysis”, I would have paid cash for what some good ol’ boys in New Orleans said.

And yes, sure, some of it, possibly a lot of it, would have been derisive and race laden…

Just for the entertainment value… considering the Gulf has been the recipient of bi-partisan screwing, for years now.

***

 BI has a post on how hard liquor sales are experiencing an uptick in the US of A.

Americans are getting drunk off vodka, whiskey and tequila again according to a Citi report, though beer is clearly the cheaper drink of choice.

 Beer still has the upper hand with 49.8% of the market share according to Reuters, but spirits drew some money away and came in second with 33.3% of the market. That compares to sub 33% market share last year.

At least some people have figured it out, stay smashed thru the decline.  Blur the mind numbing parade of pretzels.

I don’t know why exactly but street protest that is independent of the USA!! USA!! always cheers me up.

Angry Arab has oodles of entries onthe protests… I don’t see mention yet of Yemen (I caught a news snip off France 24 or EuroNews that protestors have blocked some vital point) but likely to come…

http://www.angryarab.blogspot.com/

This rides second from the top, at the moment:

“How to Revolt Intelligently”

I have just received from Egypt a secret document titled “How to Revolt Intelligently” prepared by the youth activists in Egypt. It is a most sophisticated manual by activist that I have seen. I am not exaggerating. It has very specific instructions as how to deal with the oppression tactics and methods of the Mubarak regime.

I would have shared it with you, but the activists are circulating it as a secret document with special instruction against wide distribution for fear of falling into the hands of police. It has specific instruction as to how to deal with tear gas canisters and the repression vehicles and baton of the police. It sets the demands and style of the movement with well-done illustration. It ends with an illustration of Jamal Mubarak nicknamed Jaban Mubarak (Coward Mubarak).

It is most impressive and makes me more hopeful about change in Egypt. I have not seen anything like this before, not by any revolutionary or activist movement anywhere. The title in Egyptian accent is:
كيف تثور بحدائة

This just made me laugh. No wonder “Ron jr” is trying to hype his book.

He’s said a few things over the past 20 years that were of interest — Patti was interesting only early on, like 30 years ago, when she wanted her tubes tied, lest she pop out a Ron or a Nancy, snicker — but then she, too, landed on the cash-cowing-it of writing about Daddy-O.

From the close on page 2:

[N]onetheless, Obama has left in place, or in some cases strengthened, one of the worst aspects of Bush-era policy: a knee-jerk support for self-advertised pro-Western secularists who promise to block Muslim fundamentalist parties (or, in the end, anyone else) from coming to power. There should be a diplomatic middle path between overthrowing governments on the one hand, and backing odious dictatorships to the hilt on the other.

It’s time for Washington to signal a new commitment to actual democracy and genuine human rights by simply cutting off military and counter-terrorism aid to authoritarian and corrupt regimes that are, in any case, digging their own graves.

Sorry Juan. Obster won’t be “improving”.

10. Madman in the Marketplace - 27 January 2011

he’s a clown about almost everything, but he’s not wrong about this:

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul wants to end all foreign assistance, including aid to Israel.

Paul, a Republican newly elected in Kentucky, was on CNN Wednesday outlining where he would cut the $500 billion in government spending he says is critical to sustaining the U.S. economy. His focus was on the departments of energy, education and housing.

Interviewer Wolf Blitzer then asked about foreign assistance, asking if he wanted to end “all foreign aid.” Paul said yes, and Blitzer asked him about aid to Israel.

“Well, I think what you have to do is you have to look,” Paul said. “When you send foreign aid, you actually [send] quite a bit to Israel’s enemies. Islamic nations around Israel get quite a bit of foreign aid, too.

“You have to ask yourself, are we funding an arms race on both sides? I have a lot of sympathy and respect for Israel as a democratic nation, as a, you know, a fountain of peace and a fountain of democracy within the Middle East.”

Blitzer pressed, “End all foreign aid including the foreign aid to Israel as well. Is that right?” he asked.

Paul answered, “Yes.”

marisacat - 27 January 2011

yeah I agree….

One thing I am hoping for, the domestic political climate in the US is too volatile for any shits who abdicate to come here.

France is sitting on a hot potatoe, after decades of taking in these pensioned off despots, but NOW the Tunisian thieves are a big thorn in the French side. And if Gbagboe ever moves on from the cote d’ivoire, the French may nto want him either… sunning himself at the pool at some villa in the S of France… etc.

Good.

Angry Arab:

For Husni Mubarak

“Connecticut National Guard Detachment 2, Company I, 185th Aviation Regiment of Groton has mobilized and will deploy to the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, to support the Multinational Force and Observers. The unit left Connecticut Jan. 15 for Fort Benning, Ga., for further training and validation. The unit operates C-23C Sherpa aircraft and has deployed three times in the last seven years in support of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The unit will provide an on-demand aviation asset to the Multinational Force and Observers commander to support its mission of supervising the security provisions of the Egypt/ Israel Peace Treaty.” (thanks Jeff)

And this too:

What if this was Iran?

The Egyptian regime is clamping down hard:

they stopped the internet altogether, they stopped SMS, (and Twitter and Facebook obviously shut down). Vodaphone and two other phone companies stopped SMS. Najib Suwayrus, the Egyptian billionaire friend of Jamal Mubarak, is a collaborator in the repression. Even the regime’s mouthpiece, Al-Ahram, has been shut down. Egyptian goons are erasing clips of repression from Youtube. In Suez, the land lines are down.

What if this was Iran?? And when there were protests in Iran, Twitter (the company) and Facebook (the company) came out in support of the protesters. The US media were enamored with the protesters back then.

Why are those protesters not sexy for you? You can’t say that they are Islamists this time (as if Islamists have no rights to protest–but let us go along with the argument for the sake of it), and yet they are all alone.

It will be remembered (when you ask now and later why they hate us), that Mubrak’s repression took place with the full support of both parties in the US and the Obama administration.

Do you know now why whenever a US official, any US official, ever utter the word “democracy”, Arabs get a strong urge to throw up? In Iran, the US covertly smuggled those cute camera pens for demonstrators. They were not cute enough for the Egyptian people.

I wish more of the world would realize the US could give a shit about democracy… I wish even more of the world would realize that what passes as ‘democracy’ is simply a tool of aristocratic repression.

marisacat - 27 January 2011

…what passes as ‘democracy’ is simply a tool of aristocratic repression.

ain’t it the truth.

13. marisacat - 27 January 2011

hmm John Ellis (Bush relative) linked to this article at Stratfor. FWIW…:

According to a Jan. 27 report in the independent Egyptian daily Al-Mesryoon, President Hosni Mubarak held a high-level meeting Jan. 25 with top members of the Cabinet, security officials and leaders of the ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) to discuss the largest instance of public agitation in 30 years. During the meeting, an unnamed but key member of the Cabinet reportedly called on Mubarak to immediately appoint a vice president from the military and resign as NDP chief, and said the governing party should withdraw from any plans to nominate the president’s son Gamal as a candidate for the presidential election slated for September.

If Egypt’s apex leadership is indeed discussing such measures in meetings, it means a significant number of elements within the top ranks of the state are not confident that the regime can contain the ongoing unrest without making some concessions to the public. That a senior minister is asking for the appointment of a vice president from the military shows the extent to which Egypt’s military is reasserting itself in the decision-making process. It also shows that there are forces within the ruling party that feel the party’s survival depends upon gradually distancing itself from the Mubarak family, which has been the object of public ire.

The extent to which the military and NDP are pushing for these changes remains unclear, but both entities want to preserve their political interests and are trying to prevent a potential collapse of the system. Given the situation and what is at stake, it is reasonable to assume that they are likely considering all options. The question is whether such moves are too little, too late, given the outbreak of unrest and the possibility that such moves could be seen as signs of the regime’s weakness, further emboldening its opponents.

Stratfor is subscription only and Ellis linked to some page pitching a subscription and offering the report for free via email… the reason there is no linkk to Stratfor.

CNN exclusive: FBI misconduct reveals sex, lies and videotape

Editor’s note: Some content in this report may be offensive to readers. For more on this CNN exclusive story, watch Kyra Phillips’ full report on “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer” tonight starting at 6 p.m. ET. :lol:

Washington (CNN) — An FBI employee shared confidential information with his girlfriend, who was a news reporter, then later threatened to release a sex tape the two had made.

A supervisor watched pornographic videos in his office during work hours while “satisfying himself.”

And an employee in a “leadership position” :wink:
misused a government database to check on two friends who were exotic dancers and allowed them into an FBI office after hours.

{Snip Zip Wippy Woo Hoo!}

However, the internal summaries show that even with serious misconduct, employees can keep their job (names and locations of the employees are not listed in the reports):

– An employee had “a sexual relationship with a source” over seven months. The punishment was a 40-day suspension.

– The supervisor who viewed “pornographic movies in the office while sexually satisfying himself” during work hours received a 35-day suspension.

– The employee in a “leadership position” who misused a “government database to conduct name checks on two friends who were foreign nationals employed as exotic dancers” and “brought the two friends into FBI space after-hours without proper authorization” received a 23-day suspension. The same employee had been previously suspended for misusing a government database.

– An employee who was drunk “exploited his FBI employment at a strip club,” falsely claiming he was “conducting an official investigation.” His punishment was a 30-day suspension.

– And an employee conducted “unauthorized searches on FBI databases” for “information on public celebrities the employee thought were ‘hot’” received a 30-day suspension.

I thought this was hilarious –

“The vast majority of our
employees do not lie,” Will said. “The vast
majority of our employees do not cheat. The vast
majority of our employees do not steal. The vast
majority of our employees do not engage in the
type of misconduct you are describing….

Well No Kiddin! They’re too busy FAPPING OFF! :lol:
