Big Gringos Baby Sitting on the Border

Obama is the crown prince of dumb unintended consequences. His weaknesses are telegraphed to our enemies at every turn, and bad stuff just follows in his wake. He and his minions, in their arrogance, ignorance and incompetence cannot help themselves. One scandal follows another like night and day. Their foul-ups are legion and standard operating procedure. And they seem incapable of learning anything. For instance, as discussed yesterday, Power hates a vacuum as much as Nature. As in Vietnam, when we bugged out “honorably” (the only “honorable” thing about our actions in Vietnam were the deeds of our military), no one was surprised to see the North Vietnamese (backed and supplied by their commie pals in Russia and China) rush in to commence the blood bath. The vacuum we left in our wake was immediately filled. As quickly as those Ruskie battle tanks could race south, the vacuum was no more. To not understand these sort of things requires a really low grade understanding of how the world works or an unwillingness to understand how it works (look up  “American liberal” in any dictionary …you will need one that is at least 50 years old).

And what about the poor woman in Khartoum who is about to be flogged and stoned? She’s married to a guy from New Jersey. She just had a baby…her pregnancy having been reason to postpone the stoning and associated festivities. What is this guy thinking? His polls are tanking. Get those jerks’ attention and cut off their foreign aid. Be a hero for once. Do the same in Mexico and all countries sending their unwanted children our way.

I suppose Obama will sit this one out in view of the woman’s crime…being a Christian. I suppose Obama will be reluctant to quit sitting on his hands because he doubtless sees the dire consequences of breaching that great big stupid “wall of separation” between Church and state…since he is a “Constitutional Scholar,” as he has repeatedly reminded us. But this ain’t Khartoum and Khartoum ain’t under the American Constitution. And the “Wall of Separation” is a bogus argument. It has been turned on its head by liberals/socialists. Justice Rehnquist considered it a joke as used modernly. (How ironic it is a Biblical concept borrowed from the ancient Jewish Temple…but when has irony ever not been wasted on the liberal/socialist mind? And how ironic it was invoked by Jefferson to protect the Church from the always intrusive state and not the other way around. (Look it up.) But that’s another issue for another day.

Oops! I nearly forgot the woman in Khartoum and her hubby are black. Has anyone mentioned that to Obama? Another tremendous photo op for our Race-Baiter in Chief! But he’s sittin’ on his hands. Well, there you are …it’s just another lousy day in the liberal/socialist paradise that is Obama Land.

Stephen Bowers

I am an attorney in Las Vegas who has always wanted to draw political cartoons, partly because I like drawing, but mostly because I enjoy ridiculing pompous know-nothings. Verbally debating them gets nowhere. They don't know they're beaten. But poking fun at them in a drawing leaves them without recourse or rebuttal. What can they do...? Call me names, whine, cuss me ... or maybe draw a witty riposte? Unlikely.
