Sweetness & Light:

CPUSA Honors SEIU, AFSCME ‘Leaders’

I see my old friend Jeff Fuller is performing at this event. I used to work with him when I was a grad student at Yale. He’s a fine bass-player who I believe is still working with the great Lou Donaldson.

He was a Communist back then and I see he still believes in that shit. He used to tell me about trips to Cuba. There he met many fine musicians and bands, and even waved to Fidel during a Cultural Celebration that lasted for three days.

He was a very nice guy. I can’t account for anything else and not insult him.

After that year at Yale, I moved to New York City. I lived in this strange apartment in Mid-Town where we could play music and have sessions. There was a bass-player who I remember as a rather dark guy, who used to make some of these sessions. He was a good player but I guess music didn’t work out for him and now he’s working for Joe Biden as Chief Economic Advisor. Jared Bernstein is now improvising with the world economy and the lives of billions of people.

Is he a commie too?

No, just another Progressive.

At this point, it all blurs together.

Free Republic:

This is what they did—-these climate “scientists” on whose unsupported word the world’s classe politique proposes to set up an unelected global government this December in Copenhagen, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all formerly free markets, to tax wealthy nations and all of their financial transactions, to regulate the economic and environmental affairs of all nations, and to confiscate and extinguish all patent and intellectual property rights.

The Suns in first place; Republicans winning in New Jersey, Virginia, and where I used to live, in Westchester County, NY: This is change I can believe in.

I don’t however believe in such a thing as a “Pro-Life Democrat.”

Debka File:

Obama’s Iran sanctions strategy is routed by Chinese, Russian rebuffs

Chinese president Hu Jintao said clearly after meeting US president Barack Obama in Beijing Tuesday, Nov. 17, that their governments disagree on tougher sanctions for Iran – or any other issue relating to the Islamic republic. DEBKAfile’s sources report that this rebuff has led Washington’s efforts to round up big power endorsement of harsh penalties for Iran’s continued intransigence on its nuclear program, such as an embargo on refined petrol products and gasoline, have come to a dead end. The efficacy of unilateral American sanctions, the only non-military option still left to Washington, is questionable.

So weak that Israel has no choice but to attack Iran.

So weak that Russia and China don’t fear or respect America anymore.

Iran and the rest of the Islamic Nation, Russia, China, the Communists and Drug Lords in Latin America, North Korea, these are our enemies. They will all line up against us should war break out.

So weak that he won’t know which side he’s on should that happen.

AlGore will finally get some Man-Made Global Warming. It will come from nuclear explosions. We will call it Ground Zero, a tribute to President ZerO’s leadership.
