So, you’ve stumbled onto my humble little blog. Perhaps you are a Millenial wondering why most of your friends aren’t fully employed. Or wondering why ObamaKare is being shoved down your throat. Or why your generation is on the hook for a national debt that stands at $17 $18 Trillion and counting. Maybe you are scratching your head wondering why your President thinks Global Warming the weather is more worrisome than Islamic Terror. And perhaps you’ve started to become aware there might be something the corrupt and biased lame stream media isn’t telling you. The answer, to these and other existential questions, is ... the Left - specifically, the modern American Progressive. Think of this site as a portal to a richer understanding of this answer, a portal purposely designed with a consciously cock-eyed bent to keep it entertaining. Because the First Amendment is forever and the Internet never forgets. (Plus you better figure out FICA isn't the name of a Swedish bikini model, before she eats your entire paycheck.)

How to use the portal? You could dive into my archive*. I was most active here 2010-2012, but that matters not. How many times do I need to demonstrate the central point? To wit, the political / ideological Left is a menace to the constitutional republic and must be resisted lest the American experiment in liberty devolve into socialist dystopia. If it's the more pointed hand-to-hand combat of the comment board that whets your appetite, click the 'My Disqus Comments' widget. I continue to visit that world from time to time as a light diversion. Or you could browse through my blog roll. It's a very representative collection of center-right blogs, though hardly exhaustive. I can't do the political / ideology thing 24x7, and you probably can't either. Leave that to the hysterical, talking point chanting, mob agitating, race baiting, election stealing, gaia worshiping, straw man torching, Islamic Terrorist appeasing, organized Left (aka OFA, MSNBC, UAW, SEIU, Think Progress, Media Matters, most of legacy media, the politically correct faculty lounge, anybody who belonged to Journolist, anybody connected to Occupy Wall Street, anything funded by George Soros or Tom Steyer, their paid Internet trolls, and the rest of the usual Team Leftie suspects).

Holy Sphinx, Batman!

The picture says everything. That, my friends, is an exponentially larger crowd than anything we saw during the so-called 'Arab Spring' of 2011.

Everything I've read today says the Obama administration's position on this year's Egyptian revolt is to promote "stability" - which is to say prop up the Islamist government of Muslim Brotherhood henchman Mohammed Morsi. After they did everything in their power to de-stabilize the secular government of Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

When looking for someone's true motives, look for the similarities and contradictions in parallel situations. Mubarak was committed to peace with Israel. Muslim Brotherhood not so much.

Update 7/2/13

My personal favorite from an excellent photo album.

(h/t Capitalist Preservation)

The good news so far is it looks like the 30 plus year relationship the US has cultivated with Egypt's professional military has yielded benefits. It looks like the Muslim Brotherhood was unable to co-opt the Egyptian military, which means the Muslim Brotherhood lacks the means to suppress crowds this large (much larger than in 2011 as a matter of fact).

Update 7/3/13

Oh yeah, here's another thing BHO and Morsi have in common ... persecution of Coptic Christians. Well, it's not exactly parallel. Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood murders them. All BHO does is incarcerate them for producing videos he and Hillary decide would make a good political cover up, while a firefight is simultaneously raging at a US consulate half way around the world. Google Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, kiddies.

2 pm:Looks like it might be on ...

Here's the pull quote.
Earlier in the day, both the president and the military had sworn a fight to the death. The military leader, Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, said it would be an honor to die rather than subject the Egyptian people to threats or terror.
Update 7/12/13

Sides have been chosen in the Land of Pharaohs. They are the same sides that have been struggling for political control of the region since the early twentieth century - Islamism vs. Modernity. But you would have known that if you had read my February 13, 2011 post "Egypt 2011: Ataturk Vindicated, Or al Banna’s Revenge?". The more things change the more they stay the same.

Update 7/16/13

A good move on the chess board for Team Modernity. Egyptian Army receiving Israeli cooperation with operations designed to eradicate Islamists in the Sinai.
