You know it's bad when I start using a Taliban spokesman as a point of reference. Let me explain, I've been rolling ideas around in my head for a couple of days, it has been awhile since my last entry, (Thanks to everyone for their condolences and prayers over the past few weeks) and I wanted to get back at the keyboard again but I was struggling for inspiration. Then like a bolt of Lightening it came through my e-mail...
The headline on Yahoo News: U.S. reconciliation offer "lunatic": Taliban spokesman
From Reuters via Yahoo News!
"This matter was also raised in the past," said Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, referring to comments last month by Obama, who spoke of reaching out to moderate Taliban.
"They have to go and find the moderate Taliban, their leader and speak to them. This is a lunatic idea," Mujahid said by telephone from an unknown location.
Mujahid is one of two spokesman authorized to speak for the Taliban leadership council, headed by Mullah Mohammad Omar.
Look it is a rare occasion that I will find myself agreeing with the leaders of the Taliban, but if President Obama wants his administration to "find the Moderate Taliban", then I'm with the guy who wants to kill us on this one. The Moderate Taliban? The Taliban by definition is an extremist sect of the Muslim faith, so I'm guessing there aren't a lot of fence sitters at the meetings.
But why I am surprised at the Obama administrations response to the growing Taliban in Afghanistan? I shouldn't be, this is just another of Obama's "lunatic ideas"...The man has only been in office for a little over two months and he's already signed the Largest spending bills in the history of our Country.
Now that Obama has bought the Auto Industry, with Our Money, he's decided who should run it as well, so he basically fired GM CEO Rick Wagoner last week.
The Obama administration asked Rick Wagoner, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, to step down and he agreed, a White House official said.
I'm not certain, I'm sure someone knows the answer... if you do help me out... Has the President of the United States ever fired an employee of Private Company before? Sounds like another Historical Moment in the Barack H. Obama Presidency...
After hearing about Obama's successful power grab, Barney Frank (D-MA) made a grab of his own and passed a bill through his committee that would allow the government to set the salaries of all employees of companies receiving federal funds. And when I say Government, I mean Turbo-Tax Tim Geithner. I bet those secretaries and single moms who work at AIG were Really overpaid, so I'm sure they'll still be "Well to Do".
It's not surprising then that the Tea Party Movement has gained so much momentum in the last month, as Americans watch the News only to find out that those in Power in Washington are spending our money faster than we can earn it on. Now They want to tell You How Much money you will be Allowed to Make as well. Only a Lunatic would support a plan like that.
