For a variety of reasons I haven’t managed a post in nearly a month. And we certainly know there is a lot to talk about. What I’m learning is that blogging is a state of mind, sometimes it’s there, sometime it isn’t. So I’ll start getting back into with something easy.
With the fear-mongering the Repugs are doing to try to clinch the election they’re pulling out all the stops. Scott Brown thinks Mittens would have magically kept Ebola from the shores, of course fanning the flames that Obama’s plot to kill us all with Ebola is about to be completed and we need to be very very afraid and vote Repug. Right, Scott – dream on.
So it’s no surprise that poor old ISIS is unhappy they got pushed out of the #1 spot by Ebola, yet another boogie-man streaming across our unprotected southern borders (or the non-existent direct flights from Africa the Repugs want to cancel, even if there aren’t any (I guess they’ve already succeeded, hurrah and pass the voting machines)).
Clearly ISIS knows its PR. I just saw an article that says, as awful as it is, ISIS has beheaded a few people, our oil buddies in Saudi Arabia have done nearly a hundred. The Saudis need to hire ISIS’ PR agency to make sure they get their due.
So now it’s warplanes that will soon be streaming over the border and bombing our cities. I love it, what a thoroughly stupid fear-mongering story, the perfect collusion between the Repugs and ISIS. Now as awful and disgusting as it is, when it comes to beheadings on the ground in territory they control, wait until a bunch of newly minted “pilots” get up in the sky in obsolete captured Syrian jets and take on our A team. The US jet jockeys are just drooling over shooting down some rookie who doesn’t realize a combat aircraft is not a knife used on a defenseless person, well that is, until our pilots take out 7th century warriors in the sky.
But with days to go before the election I’m sure some Repug will find some new way to blame Obama and spread more fear while ISIS is probably smart enough to just put out their propaganda and keep their pilots on the ground.
