Yeah… It’s In There

Mind you, THIS is just the proverbial 'tip of the iceberg' sampling here:

Meanwhile, the New York Times must be bored out of its empty head in the throngs of a summer heat wave in the middle of the dirty city and must be tickling for something big to blow-up to report on ... or something:

You know what they say: Never negotiate with terrorists. It only encourages them.

These last few months, much of the country has watched in horror as the Tea Party Republicans have waged jihad on the American people. Their intransigent demands for deep spending cuts, coupled with their almost gleeful willingness to destroy one of America’s most invaluable assets, its full faith and credit, were incredibly irresponsible. But they didn’t care. Their goal, they believed, was worth blowing up the country for, if that’s what it took.

There's more ... Go, if you must...

However, they started out last week calling the TEA Party "Hobbits" ... until somebody who obviously knew the JRR Tolkien saga of a war between good and evil for 'Middle Earth' informed them all the Hobbits were good 'little folks', and heroically won in the end. Then it was the whole catalog of "terrorists", "hostage-takers", suicide bombers, and "baby-kidnappers".

Not a very good PR move, if you ask me. I mean, what if somebody decided to carry out an actual hostage-taking, suicide bombing, or building bombing and all these idiots had spent the better part of a week or more tossing around the terms as they do "Nazis" and "Hitler" ... I mean, would the NY Times and the rest of these mouthy bashers have to struggle over using the "terrorist" terms in discussing or reporting the attack? And after using it liberally for days and days against people that might very well end up being victims of an actual terror attack? Huh? What if? Think they'd be a bit egg-faced? Probably not. But never fear, the next wave of demonization rhetoric from the media and the democrat party against the American people making a movement against the political and governmental status quo is already being hatched by a democrat in New York ... I am sure the 'memo' is being printed and will be arriving to all these people shortly:

A new "Mafia war" has broken out, and it's got nothing to do with wiseguys' wives or video games.

The Staten Island Tea Party is up in arms after state Sen. Diane Savino (D-North Shore/Brooklyn) called the group the "new Mafia" on her personal Facebook page.

"So much for civil discourse," said Tea Party organizer Frank Santarpia, a Huguenot resident.

But Ms. Savino said she can say what she wants on her private Facebook, on which Santarpia is one of her friends.

"My Facebook, my opinion," she said. "If you don't like the raw, uncut Diane Savino, tune to my official Senate site."

In a post this morning, Ms. Savino invited her 4,000-plus personal Facebook followers to "Meet the New Mafia," and linked to a New York Times editorial critical of the role that Tea Party lawmakers have had in the debt-ceiling negotiations.

"To compare a grass-roots movement of ordinary Americans, one that is concerned with putting our country's fiscal house in order, to an organized crime syndicate whose tactics include murder and extortion is beyond the pale," said Santarpia. [...]

With all this terrorism goin' on `round here ... well, all's I can say is thank heavens the Obama administration is taking all this possible domestic terrorism seriously.

[...] And although al Qaeda and like-minded groups pose the "most significant and direct" threat to the U.S., the strategy focuses on violent extremism of all varieties because violent ideologies change over time and "new threats will undoubtedly arise in the future," according to an unclassified draft of the strategy obtained by The Associated Press. It is expected to be released Wednesday.

The eight-page plan, more than a year in the making, is short on specifics and stakes out no new ground on the thorny issue of homegrown terrorism. [...]

After all, we are coming up on a new election cycle. Can't have anyone voicing opposition of "big government" or those sitting comfortable on their butts while they decide every aspect of our lives ... can we? We were already told we should be rioting in the streets, just like Greece ... Heck, it had better happen, already, for petesakes!

Loving that new tone rhetoric post-Gabby Giffords all these same people screamed for.

Deflection ... Anyhow, "YO! Happy Ramadan, pisanos!"
