It's A Thug World, for Us

An old saying goes something like, "After a day off, I'm having an off day."
Eh, maybe it's a new catch phrase.

Yesterday, no real 'breaking' news to speak of, and today KA-BLAMO!
There is just a ton of news items.

For as Tupac rapped once, Thug 4 Life, Can't you read the signs?

1). In Cuba overnight,Fidel Castro resigns, and Hollywood and Caracas socialists weep for him.
I have seen pictures of the real Cuba, that no visiting non-Cuban is allowed to see ( there is one post-);

2). There is now both a news item covering Mexico's president Calderon's recent chastisment and condemnation of the United States over our immigration policies and our plans to build a Border Fence; AND, news that a western Oklahoma legislator intends to investigate how Oklahoma's great, Anti-illegal-immigration law, HB 1804 can be side stepped, so that turnip farmers in his district don't have to dirty their own hands...
( post number 2- You Get the Idea...)

3). There are two or three state primaries going on today, in Wisconsin, Hawai'i, and Washington. Breaking News There: The Usual Suspects Win Again, Losers Claim Foul...
( learn to count, post # 3)
¯¯"Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss..." ¯¯

4). Related to Number 3: Bill Clinton shoots off his mouth, hitting his wife's foot again, in the face of Pro-Life protesters. There is a tempting thought of presenting comparasions, side by side, of how liberal protesters take over a conservative speaker's venue, opposed to how conservative protesters are treated by liberal THUG-speakers, like Slick.
{ Cue the Code Pink Insta-Rage }

But I choose this new news item to here expose, because of their trademark brand of quiet terrorism threats:
From Little Green Footballs,

"Our Friends, the Saudis Threatened Britain"

Seeing how the smug Prince Bandar is revealed to have threatened P.M. Tony Blair with more terrorism, "like that of 7/7" in Britain, if an investigation into his billion-dollar-(whoa there, I meant 'Billion-Pound)-bribe payments is exposed, makes me angry and sick.
So what is that, a two-billion-dollar bribe total?
What's another Billion dollars, among thugs??

Previously secret files describe how investigators were told they faced "another 7/7" and the loss of "British lives on British streets" if they pressed on with their inquiries and the Saudis carried out their threat to cut off intelligence.

Prince Bandar, the head of the Saudi national security council, and son of the crown prince, was alleged in court to be the man behind the threats to hold back information about suicide bombers and terrorists. (See section 7.2 of this Wikipedia "BAE" definition, "Saudi Interference") He faces accusations that he himself took more than £1bn in secret payments from the arms company BAE. Right, 1bn Ls = $~2bn.

He was accused in yesterday’s high court hearings of flying to London in December 2006 and uttering threats which made the prime minister, Tony Blair, force an end to the Serious Fraud Office investigation into bribery allegations involving Bandar and his family.

And as usual, both (once Great) Britain and (once Great) Tony Blair folded up like a lawn chair, and kept quiet about it, till now. And didn't the Brits very soon afterward, resign and remove from defending Iraq in Basra--
Thought so.

I almost wrote the following: "If and when America topples, I hope that She is remembered as the "Hope of the World", in President Ronald Reagan's words...
thank you, delete key;

But No!! Damn it, we still have an obligation to stand up and stand with and for right, and the same with and for civility, with and for freedom, with and for decency:
We still will defend this world, because of those beliefs,

because of that knowing.

And that would be the same ending sentence with and for

all posts, numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 above.
