Birds Of A Feather

Socialists like each other. Socialists will protect each other, even while saying bad things about each other, but all the bad talk is ending in a group hug with all the socialists in the Western Hemisphere schmoozing and practically having a group grope.
The fly in the ointment, or lotion, has been the ouster of Manuel Zelaya, the former President of Honduras. 

A member of the Commie club was tossed out of his own country for attempting to subvert the Constitution of Honduras by asking their Supreme Court to change the law to continue to allow him to, in effect, be President for life. His own party tossed him out of the country in his PJs- that is how outraged they were.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced Thursday that the United States would formally suspend nearly $30 million in aid to the coup-installed government in Honduras. She also suggested for the first time that the United States might not recognize the country’s elections this fall if the ousted president was not returned to power by then.

That’s it, Billary- you go girl- Save The Socialist! The fact that Zelaya was prepared to go around the term limits of his country’s Constitution in an unlawful manner, and attempt to become a Dictator, is of no concern to our government, indeed, Nobama is cool with the idea,as that seems to be in vogue now, what with all the tin pot Dictators popping up like Orville Redenboker Kettle Corn. Castro (he’s old hat), Chavez, Morales, Zelaya, Ortega, and more I can’t remember right off the top of my head.

All of them want to be Dictator for Life in their respective countries, at least. And all of them are driving their countries into the ground. Great examples to follow, to be sure.

Zelaya even had the ballots for his spurious legal challenge to his Constitution printed in Venezuela- they were confiscated by the authorities when he attempted to smuggle them into Honduras, and that apparently was what triggered the coup, if you wish to characterize it as such- I prefer the term, “Expedited Impeachment”.

It was his own party that followed their lawful Constitution, and now they are being punished by the “Freedom loving” United States? The US wants to re- impose a dictator? Yes, Virginia, there is a Satan, and I think he resides in the White House- if not Satan, at least his retarded son. 

Who else would punish a foreign government for following its laws, and attempting to protect their Democracy? Sometimes, looking at what our government is doing, I feel as if I am in the middle of the film “Idiocracy”- a film I couldn’t watch all the way through, simply because it was too painful to see liberals portrayed so nakedly realistic.

But here they are acting stupidly in real life, endangering not only our own country, but a democratic neighbor, one of the “good guys”- how backwards is that?

The announcement amounted to a gamble that the threat would finally force the de facto government to back down. So far, that government, led by longtime congressman Roberto Micheletti, has resisted intense international pressure, both economic and political. Its members argue that Zelaya’s removal was legal because he had violated the constitution by organizing a referendum that could have allowed him to evade the one-term limit for the presidency.

But the reasons for the coup supporters’ vehemence go deeper: They fear that the leftist Zelaya would have introduced the socialist-style agenda promoted by Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, a Zelaya ally and leader of an anti-American bloc in the hemisphere.

Kind of reminds you of Ted Kennedy and his attempts to manipulate the laws to suit him, doesn’t it? Those crazy Socialists- they don’t feel as if they are bound by ethics, or laws, or even morals, do they? As I have said before, they are trying for a Hemispheric Kumbaya with Global reach- around here, and it is repugnant on several levels, the first and most disturbing is that the beacon for Freedom, the “Shining City on the Hill”- the United States of America, would even participate in this farce, much less take the side of a Chavez wannabe, and then try to force the issue with the withholding of monetary aid to the country.

Even the Unions, bastions of Communism that they are, are participating in this, refusing to unload the Honduran ships that dock in our harbors.

This is shameless, classless and clueless behavior on the part of this administration. But that is now par for the course, sadly- our government is no longer something we can look to with pride, but now, with shame and disgust.

You go, Honduras- Keep up the good fight!
