Stock Up On Toilet Paper ... (por si las moscas)

Wow. So like Obama kicked some Republican butt.

The left has entrenched itself into power in America.

The White House is about to get a tenant-a superhero- who is a deliberate stranger and whose secret identity has been protected from the public by a media that has willfully disregarded the powers entrusted to them by the Constitution- Their “negative liberties” in Barackspeak.

And so, I stay up real late to listen to the speeches. (Yawn). It occurs to me that McCain might have been working on this concession speech since March. The Caribou Barbie was there. She seemed to be holding back tears, like a woman who just found out her husband has been cheating on her and will not give him the satisfaction of crying in front of him. She doesn’t like to loose, this lady. She’s grown on me.

Finally, the President-elect of the United States comes out for his coronation speech. I’m listening intently for the Marxist code words that he tends to throw out in his speeches. I’m waiting for him to lay out his plans for a collective utopia and for the upcoming formation of his national civilian security force.

None of that, though, just the same ol’ “America is the best country on Earth so let’s change it” speech with some contrived “samplings” of Lincoln and King, sob stories and bumper sticker slogans -but in a new hopeful and changeful tone.

The only potentially collectivist words were in this passage:

This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is only the chance for us to make that change.
And that cannot happen if we go back to the way things were.

It can't happen without you, without a new spirit of service, a new spirit of sacrifice.
So let us summon a new spirit of patriotism, of responsibility, where each of us resolves to pitch in and work harder and look after not only ourselves but each other.

I wonder if Peggy Joseph from South Florida was aware that President Obama, rather than write her a monthly check so she doesn’t have to worry about her mortgage and filling her gas tank, was expecting her to “work harder and look after not only after ourselves but each other” “with a new spirit of service and sacrifice.” In Barackspeak, that basically means that Peggy now gets to worry about her neighbor’s mortgage and gas tank as well. I bet she never thought that this day would ever happen, either.

I have no idea how far President Obama is willing to act on his obvious socialist instincts.
But, stock up on toilet paper just in case.

Socialist countries are notorious for toilet paper shortages. Toilet paper is practically non-existent in Cuba and its considered a luxury. Maybe Obama will institute a luxury "sin" tax on toilet paper. That's called "a Florio" after a New Jersey Governor who did started to tax toilet paper (and raised everything else) in the 80's and wound up getting kicked out of office.

LLAMAN A LANZARSE A LAS CALLES DE CUBA EL PRÓXIMO LUNES A LAS 8 DE LA NOCHE

(11-6-08- 9:05PM)


Tal y como ha venido adelantando Nuevo Acción, hace unos minutos, a las 8 y 20 minutos se lanzó a través de las emisoras de Miami "La Poderosa" y "Cadena Azul", el llamado para que se produzca en Cuba el desafío ciudadano, mediante el cual se han comprometido varios factores de la oposición y del clandestinaje cubano a lanzarse a las calles en franco desafío a la tiranía.

Distintas personalidades del exilio cubano participaron en un programa especial de "La Séptima Provincia" que dirige Héctor Alfonso Ruiz "Fabian" y exhortaron a que el pueblo se una a los que iniciarán el desafío, que fue descripto como "un abierto y claro desafío, para salir a las calles, a tomarlas,.. tomar las azoteas' y se señalaron como objetivos "desde los postes de la luz hasta los hoteles turísticos".


Fabián inició el programa diciendo: "Ya no hay penúltimo llamado...Esta noche, después de más de tres semanas de intenso trabajo, culminamos lo que prometimos que haríamos, a los que desde Cuba nos lo pidieron...que diéramos la fecha y la hora de iniciar el desafío cívico ciudadano destinado a lanzarse a las calles a reclamar derechos y la libertad".

Al terminar el programa se envió el mensaje a todos los comprometidos a lo largo y ancho de Cuba de que el desafío comenzaría el próximo lunes día 10 a las 8 de la noche y se les instó a que comenzaran a tomar todas las precauciones para evitar ser detenidos y para cumplir efectivamente la palabra empeñada, de que los cubanos demostrarán que son capaces de iniciar la batalla por su libertad sólos.

Para los que seguramente criticarán la manera en que se ha anunciado esta presunta acción, hay que explicar que la idea de dar la fecha de antemano no se tomó festinadamente, ni en el exilio, sino que fue una expresa petición de los gestores desde Cuba, para evitar ser detenidos en los últimos momentos cuando tuviesen que trasnmitirse unos a otros la fecha y la hora. Alegan que ya todos los responsables saben lo que tiene que hacer y que sólo faltaba acordar la fecha y que estaban alertas para escucharlas por las mencionadas emisoras y por algunas publicaciones que llegan a Cuba vía internet.
