Activist Monday: Leave Great Britain Alooooooone!

Posted on: February 2, 2015

MB’s Current State

Hellooooo Widdershins! I hope you all enjoyed whatever you watched on Sunday. Feel free to comment about that as well!

Today, I’d like to make a fervent plea on behalf of our cousins across the pond – the British. Yes, I know they are imperialists from whose domination our forefathers and foremothers only escaped by expending a great deal of blood and sacrifice.  But whatever they have done in the past, do they really deserve this?

Thinking of seeking the Republican presidential nomination in 2016? London is calling.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie this weekend becomes the latest in a parade of potential candidates to journey across the Atlantic to try and nurture their own special relationship with Great Britain — or at least enhance their limited foreign policy credentials.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio made the trip in December of 2013. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence came in July. Texas Gov. Rick Perry was here in October, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in November and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal in January. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is scheduled to arrive Feb. 9.

They’ve all had different, and usually official, reasons for coming — Christie’s trip formally aimed at building the economic ties that bind New Jersey businesses to the United Kingdom, as well as strengthening cultural and diplomatic connections between them. But the trips also serve as practice runs for performing on a potentially larger stage, whether as a presidential nominee or as commander in chief.

Okay, GOP, okay. I understand why you want to go to London. You figure, “Hey, the government is mostly white and male there too…just the way I like it. They even speak English – well, kind of. And they have lots of fried, unhealthy food for me to stock up on. Yes, England is the perfect starter country for me to prove I can be President!” But must you all go? Must you parade your ignorance, lack of couth and genuine, dyed-in-the-wool *ssh0litude in front of our closest and most powerful ally? Dudes…you’re making us look bad. And it’s not the first time.

US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney made some undiplomatic criticism of London’s preparations for the Olympic Games on Wednesday, expressing concern about Britain’s readiness to host the event.

Romney even called into question whether the British people as a whole were behind the spectacle, saying this would be key their success.

“Do they come together and celebrate the Olympic moment? And that’s something which we only find out once the games actually begin,” he said.

Oh, snap, Mitt! Way to tout “American exceptionalism” without having a clue about the country or culture you’re visiting! I’m sure the base lapped that up….but the British? Not so much.

“We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it’s easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere,” Prime Minister David Cameron said at the time, shortly after meeting privately with the presidential candidate. The comment was a swipe at Romney’s tenure running the Salt Lake City Olympics in 2002.

I’m begging all of you, intelligence-deprived Neanderthals with stupid names, who truly, truly have no chance of winning against Hillary Clinton…Leave Great Britain Alooooone! You’re only hurting yourselves…and the reputation of the United States to boot.

This is an open thread.

Groundhog Day predictions are mixed. Phil says six more weeks, but Long Island Chuck and General Beauregard Lee do not concur.

Ah, the weather predictions of cute fuzzy animals….Happy Groundhog Day!

I noticed that the trend of SB Commercials this year was to have celebrities making fun of themselves or the parts they normally play. I think there were no fewer than seven of these this year. I enjoyed them a lot, actually.

Hahaha! He always knows how to make headlines.

So do you remember the guy in FL with the chainsaw down his pants?
Well check this out.

At least they were frozen and not thawed.

Disgustingly reminiscent of the “Let’s go bomb Iraq” mentality that took over whatever POTUS was in charge in the 80’s & 90’s.

Granted, diplomatic ineptitude a la Barry is a whole lot less destructive than the series of illegal wars the U.S. waged against Iraq, it’s still the same mentality: “Gosh, how do we get our poll numbers up?”

(The insane strike against Iraq and wiping out the only safety net women had when their primary employer turned violent were the two things that had me up furiously writing President Clinton and organizing to mitigate the effects. Otherwise, he did more for women that any other six Dems. combined)
