Notable & Hypocritical: Two Birds of a Feather that Don't Fly Together

"Here's Charles Rangel saying it's unconstitutional for the President and the State Department to list[en] to Cuban-Americans. This is what pisses me off about these disingenuous jerks. They are pissed simply because we use the institutions of democracy, namely the vote, to influence policy. If that's crime, then we are guilty. -- Henry "Economist" Gómez, "Joe García's Fundraising Buddy," Babalu, April 23, 2008


The "institutions of democracy?"

How about the forms of democracy?

When are those going to be honored at Babalú?

I can think of no better illustration of the hypocrisy, unctuousness, bullying, absolutism and visceral disdain for not only the practice of democracy but for the lives and future of those who are not free than Congressman Charlie Rangel. His desire that Cubans should always starve under Communism and Babalú's desire that Cubans should be starved out of Communism exhibit the same contempt for the Cuban people.

Rangel sees Cubans as the guinea pigs in his Marxist utopia; and the Babalunians as rats in a Pavlovian maze that can be trained by holding out and withholding grains of food. Both presuppose that Cubans exist solely for the purpose of being agents for their worst intentions.

In fact, in the moral universe, there is no difference between Rangelians and Babalunians.

"Vote" is a code word for "wealthy lobbyists".

Have ever heard that one coin has to faces?
These people are the two faces of the same coin....
And their face (farce?) value is the same, by force....

Odd Henry should speak about democracy when he does not practice it, they sure need a big dose of it at Babalunia, you are right Manuel, they are both the same.

john longfellow aka lou dobbs said...

Listen, both Henry and Val understand democracy. Unfortunately, human nature took over. It is human nature that once someone has control of something, to become a dictator, and start setting their own self-serving rules. Happens every where, and all the time.


But in this instance, it is particularly disgusting, because of Henry and Val's heritage, and the fact that Henry and Val's grandparents had to endure the very same behavior which they foist upon others.

Mat, how many times a day do you think Henry and Val sneaks in here?

Not as much as they would wish. After all, Val is constantly renovating his house (and picking up dead chickens and coconuts from his lawn) and Henry has to attend to his 66 blogs.

This reminded me of my nightmare scenario: President Obama, Secretary of State Rangel with Asst. Secretary Greg Craig.

No, Greg Craig as the first U.S. ambassador to Cuba since 1961. Unless Colin Powell wants the job.

RCAB doesnt need to prove anything to Babulu. Because in two weeks time the total of RCAB's comments exceeds a year of Babulu's comments.

Mat the people of BUBULU can't get past 30 comments in almost any of their posts. They do have over 15 writers the cadre. If one of them comment on every post they will have at least 15 per

I dont think babulu wants people to start making phone calls to authorities.

As i think other authorities would be interested in those who 1) may be giving aid comfort to the Cuban government 2) who appear to have a fixation with crimes against children.
