Some of my Patriotic friends are disappointed in the result of the recent compromise on the debt. I am too. As a result they are challenged with focusing their anger in an appropriate direction. In the spirit of cooperation and harmony amongst my fellow conservatives, I am providing some assistance.
We can’t lose sight of who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. I freely admit that some of them change camp from time-to-time which does make identification difficult. I’ve decided to use a method that an intelligence officer used for me one time. We were part of a contingency package to go into a very nasty place. He divided the groups, clans, and other organizations into three categories: Usually Friendly, Usually Hostile, and Death. Fortunately we never went there – note there was no “Allies” category. I think that is appropriate for Congress. I have grouped well known movie characters to illustrate:
Think of characters like Dirty Harry (“Dirty Harry”), Mr. Bean (“Mr. Bean”) and Good Arnold in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.”
Representatives John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Michele Bachmann, Allen West. Senators Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul (w/o Redbull), Jim DeMint, and Jeff Sessions. Generally speaking this category includes nearly all Republicans with some notable exceptions. There are no Democrats in this category – none, zero, zip, nada, squat.
Covers Captain Barbarossa (“Pirates of the
Caribbean”), Colonel Nathaniel Jessup (“A Few Good Men”) and Gordon Gecko (“Wall Street”)
Senators John McCain, Lindsay Graham,
Snowe, Susan Collins, Scott Brown, and Rand Paul (on Redbull). The only Democrat that fits in this category is former Senator Zell Miller. I toyed with putting “Blue Dog Democrats” in this category – but when push comes to shove – they are still Democrats (Socialist, Progressives, Liberals, whatever) and when we needed them (Obamacare) they fell like a house of cards. Olympia
Alex Forrest (“Fatal Attraction”), Darth Vader (“Star Wars”). General Zod (“Superman II”). Jason (“Friday the 13th”), Dr. Christian Szell (Marathon Man), and bad
in the first “Terminator.” Arnold
All Democrats. Tell me you can’t see Nancy Pelosi putting a live Rabbit in boiling water? Barack Obama - Darth Vader you haven’t made that connection yet? Harry Reid and flash-backs of General Zod? Chuck Schumer as a wimpy but still lethal Jason? I know you are like me and listening to Barney Frank is like watching Dustin Hoffman getting his tooth drilled without Novocain by Dr, Szell. The Terminator and Dick Durbin – yeah.
That should clear everything up for you guys with target acquisition problems.
