When the dateline reads ‘Phuket’ what can you expect?
But three funny – or not so funny – things happened to Big Bird – oops, we mean Missus Bubba – in Phuketland yesterday, as she set out to meet the allegedly “friendless” North Koreans. (People who live in glass dwellings as do Missus Bubba and the Community Organizer should be careful about throwing such stones, but we’ll let that one pass for a moment.)
First of all, we weren’t the only ones to take exception to Big Bird’s perfectly dreadful outfit. Even the Nork’s Foreign Ministry – not noted for their sense of humor -- poked fun. "We cannot but regard Mrs. Clinton as a funny lady,” a spokesman said, adding some juicy tidbits about her lack of knowledge of international affairs before moving on to play the role of an Asian Mr. Blackwell.
"Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes like a pensioner going shopping."
Now I for one, on behalf of pensioners worldwide, take exception to that. Profound exception.
No ‘pensioner’ I know would consider even walking the dog in a Big Bird getup like Missus Bubba’s, let alone going shopping in it.
Draft a petition, someone! The North Koreans have egregiously insulted pensioners, and we demand an apology.
So Missus Bubba took a return swipe at the North Koreans, saying they were behaving like spoiled children or ‘unruly teenagers’, and she wasn’t going to give them the attention they wanted.
Y’know? Maybe Dr. Phil should have gone on this trip and let Missus Bubba stay home and tend to her elbow. We may have been better off if she had broken her larynx.
What on earth will this administration think of next? Fake barf? Whoopee cushions?
Eventually Missus Bubba decided that beating up on the North Koreans wasn’t all that much fun, so she moved on to a more interesting target. Israel.
Just a few minutes ago, Missus Bubba announced that the US is transferring $200 million tax dollars to “help ease the budget crisis in Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad's government”.
Prime Minister Salaam Fayad’s government, of course, is controlled by the terrorist Fatah party, so what’s happening is that not only have the Community Organizer and Missus Bubba decided that the Arab terrorists need your (our) tax dollars more than you do, but that they’re pleased to be able to contribute to the terrorists’ drive to eliminate the State of Israel.
It’s this issue of synchronicity: On that same day the US was filling the terrorist’s coffers with your hard earned tax dollars, the terrorists made their own announcement.
Senior members of Fatah announced that their terrorist gang will never recognize Israel, and will continue to call for war against Israel. “Fatah does not recognize Israel's right to exist, nor have we ever asked others to do so,” said senior Fatah member Rafik Natsheh, a close associate of PA chairman Abu Mazen, according to a report in Israel National News.
Not only will Fatah never recognize Israel, but it will never end its call for armed struggle against Israel, he said. “Let those who are deluding themselves hear: this will never happen,” he said.
So now this makes me wonder: As the Obama Administration continues to chew on Israel, issuing dictates forbidding the birth of Jewish babies and ultimatums regarding where Jews can live in Jerusalem, is the timing of this transfer of cash just a coincidence?
After all, think of all the dastardly things a band of terrorists can do with a cool $200 million.
On the other hand, think of all the things struggling families in the US could do with just a tiny part of that sum.
Change, we need. The sooner the better.
