I have said to you before that even if Libya and the United States enter into war, God forbid, you will always remain my son, and I have all the love for you as a son, and I do not want your image to change with me. — Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, in a letter to President Barack Hussein Obama — NY Times
Hmmmmmmm. I wonder if the teabaggers have contacted Daffy Qaddafi yet to inquire about “his son’s” birth certificate? This could explain a lot.
Well, in any event, it seems as though in fact we are at war with Libya, part of the coalition led by the French, of all people, flinging explosives at the nation’s strategic military sites. Reports of destructive bombings (what other kind is there?) on Daffy’s personal compound were confirmed as well, although the United States denies that he’s on some kind of international hit list. However, there is agreement among European leaders and the US that the shitheel needs to be removed from power.
This is remarkable on several levels, not the least of which is that prior to this week, most Americans thought a “no-fly zone” was a service you bought from Truly Nolen.
Anyway, if this approach actually works, and Daffy is forced out, I think we should explore the feasibility of the same tactics in Tallahassee, where Gov Dickwithears and his posse have launched themselves into orbit far beyond what ordinary folks consider realty. Consider this, for example:
An NRA-backed bill that would curb the questions doctors can ask patients about gun ownership passed out of a House subcommittee Tuesday….House Bill 155, sponsored by Rep. Jason Brodeur (R-Sanford ), makes it an invasion of privacy for a doctor, nurse or other medical professional to ask patients whether they own guns or keep them in the home.
Many medical groups adopt policies to encourage physicians to ask patients about firearms. The American Medical Association, for instance, tells members to ask parents about guns as part of child-proofing their homes. — tampabay.com
Doctors could be fined $10,000 the asking first time, and a minimum of $100,000 afterwards. The so-called conservatives — you know, the ones who hate government and want it off people’s backs and businesses and out of their lives — propose inserting themselves into the relationship between doctors and patients, prohibiting what can and can’t be discussed.
Talk about a no-fly zone — how about a no-clue zone? A few strategic airstrikes to get these inhuman thugs to back down isn’t such a stretch under these circumstances, is it?
