On What Can Be Found on the Walls of Amsterdam's Alleys

-and I don't mean what's left of my Heineken

Taken in Amsterdam Summer 5768

I'd like to take a moment out of my 'normal' travelogue posts on Europe for this Political statement:

Obama and Co. . . . Grow up! You're seriously getting on my nerves.

Seriously though.

Political beliefs and views on reality aside . . .

When Obama gave his speech at the DNC, McCain congratulated him:
"Senator Obama, this is truly a good day for America. Too often the achievements of our opponents go unnoticed. So I wanted to stop and say, congratulations. How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day. Tomorrow, we'll be back at it. But tonight, senator, job well done."
When McCain announced his VP?
"Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency."
This coming from a guy with how much legislative -and zero executive- experience?
(Mayor? What ever happened to Palin's governorship -Alaska is as much America as Vermont. Scratch that, Alaska has a bigger population and never voted to arrest the President and Vice-President)

And now Biden's words:

“There’s a gigantic difference between John McCain and Barack Obama and between me and I suspect my vice presidential opponent,” Biden said at an outdoor rally Sunday, getting ready to hit the GOP ticket for their economic policies.

“She’s good-looking,” he quipped.

I'm sorry but that's plain sexist. Imagine McCain had remarked that the difference between him and Barack was that Obama was much better at shooting hoops . . . The masses would be up in arms with cries of racism. Yet the Democrats -the self proclaimed bastions of Feminism, Equality and other cliched platitudes that truthfully died in the Gulags of Siberia- don't hesitate to reduce the governor of an entire state to mere eye-candy. What of her actions, opinions and personal experiences?

You self-righteous bastards!

Wow. That felt good.

We can now return to further travels in the land of self-centered liberals that at least have experience with such -the French. [I take that back . . . the French in Phalsbourg were very respectiful of the Kashrus in our kitchen -that's more then what Obama mentioned back in '06]

Of note the previous post was post 770 . . . Blog on!

I enjoyed your political rant. Glad you got that out of your system. Good to intersperse the beautiful with some notes on the election.

"Feminism, Equality and other cliched platitudes that truthfully died in the Gulags of Siberia"

What the heck is that supposed to mean? The Russians weren't into feminism and equality. What does that have to do with the Democrats?

Mottel said...

-Leora: Thanks!
-E: Russia prided itself in the rights of women in the CCCP, their pay was the same, job opportunities were better etc. They were into theoretical equality -that we should all be equal and the same, thus their disdain for religion and all things bourgeoisie . . . In any event, the Democrats are swiftly heading down the path of the radical left, and thus Communism.

The Soviets were very much into equality - an equal sense of servitude for all but the self appointed elite. (On a positive note, even today in the FSU you do see women engaged in professions and courses of study that are thought of as "male" in other countries, such as engineering, programming and mathematics).

Kind of like the ideals of Barack Hussein and Michelle Obama and their cohorts - tax loopholes for them and high taxes for everyone else in order to pay for welfare that keeps generations in servitude to the party that guarantees them those welfare payments (as well as servitude to crime, drugs and alcohol that they turn to in order to relieve the boredom and uselessness of their lives).

Indeed, today's "Democratic" party is nothing but a European style Socialist party transplanted to the US. It has regressed to the Carter era.

I am sure that Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Putin, the European left, Raul Castro, and certain parties in E"Y for whom a weak America will be advantageous await an Obama victory. Let them dream on.

I'm glad to see that we see eye to eye on this Yitzhak!

Let me get this straight. Because the communists claimed to support equality and feminism, and because the Democrats are like communists, therefore the Democrat's ideals of feminism and equality truthfully died in the Soviet gulags?

Mottel, Does that really make sense to you?

Mottel said...

Those ideals were professed by the communists, but proven through their regime to, practically, be bankrupt. The Democrats, who now are heading in that general direction also voice these ideals, yet fail to live up to them or use them for terrifying results (letting Iran have a nuclear weapon -as Biden has since said is a fact that Israel must live with)

e said...

Oy, are you mixing things up.

Do you think the democrats' failure to achieve equality/the terrifying results the attempt is bringing will bring to Soviet style gulags?

Here's what I think you meant to say:
The Communists suck.
The Democrats suck.
I hate them, even though they claim to have some good ideas.

Mottel said...

Not necessarily, and with the checks and balances in our government most likely no, but it is heading down that path and therefor if taken further could.

Nemo said...

Big frikking deal, all this is "Political beliefs and views on reality aside. . ."

What does any of this have to do with wh will be a better president?

Mottel said...

Meaning outside of my political and viewpoint problems with him (where there is room to debate with others), I feel that there is something seriously wrong with a person who is so self-righteous and childish.
