As Queen blares in the background…….
Recently we whacked the number one terrorist in the whole wide world, Osama,……..kudos to us!
And we have killed about a thousand number twos….even more kudos!
And now we got that bastard American that turned himself into a cleric….no…not Cat Stevens……you know that tall skinny bearded guy in Yemen?
An American radical cleric linked to al-Qaida who led an organization labeled as one of the most serious threats to U.S. security has been killed in Yemen, the country’s defense ministry said on Friday.”The terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki has been killed along with some of his companions,” the defense ministry said in a statement sent by text message to journalists, Reuters reported.
A Yemeni security official told Reuters that al-Awlaki, who is of Yemeni descent, was hit in a Friday morning air raid in the northern al-Jawf province that borders oil giant Saudi Arabia.
While the American government did not immediately officially verify the claim, NBC News’ Chuck Todd reported that a senior official had confirmed to him that al-Awlaki had been killed.
NBC News’ Richard Engel reported in a message on Twitter that a Yemen source said al-Awlaki was killed by U.S. planes. An American drone aircraft targeted but missed him in May.
We Americans can now sleep better at night…..for we have killed another bad guy…..and only about a bazillion left to go….kudos!
For years I have been telling people to watch their backs that they were letting the politicians get away with way too much and that it would eventually sneak up and bite them in the butt…..right about now the voter’s ass should look like hamburger!
It began with the hatchet job done on ACORN by Breitbart and his lackey film maker….it seemed that the Far Right had to silence ACORN and the job it did helping poor people register to vote….for those people were “Democrats”…argh!
Then after the 2010 election we had a number of Repub governors attacking collective bargaining and union membership as some how making the deficits worse in their states….states like Ohio, Wisconsin …….after all unions were the major contributors to the opposition…..those “Democrats”…..argh!
And then Repub governors and legislatures started attacking voting…..they passed new laws that limit who could vote or made it extremely hard for some people to register….states like Florida…because these people more than likely would have voted….”Democrat”….argh!
And now there is a new approach…..the Hill is reporting….
A new proposal by the governor of Pennsylvania that would dramatically change how the state awards its Electoral College votes could have a major impact on the 2012 election — and President Obama’s reelection chances.The plan would be similar to the configurations in Nebraska and Maine, which divide their votes rather than adopting the “winner-take-all” system in place in the remaining states plus the District of Columbia. But while Nebraska and Maine have a relatively small impact on the race, due to their size, Pennsylvania’s adoption of the system would have a dramatic effect on the presidential process.
They will tinker with a plan that was stated in the Constitution….remember that document?
This plan would further eliminate the whole idea of one vote concept….this is the attempt to find ways to prevent Obama from gaining all the electoral votes….these newly elected Repub governors and legislatures are doing what they accused us Leftist of wanting to do in the past….and yet they get support and the Left got vilified……why is that? To be fair, this idea could well, backfire on them….but that is not important….trying to gin the system for the 2012 election is all that matters at this time…….
I warned yet again…WATCH your backs…….or you will lose what few voting rights you have now…..and there are NOT many left.
