[T]he Muslim Brotherhood – whether it is operating in Egypt, elsewhere in the world, or here – is our enemy. Vital U.S. interests will be at risk if it succeeds in supplanting the present regime in Cairo, taking control in the process not only of the Arab world’s most populous nation but its vast, American-supplied arsenal. — Frank Gaffney
Feel free to publish, post, or pass on Your Weekly Politickle by F.R. Duplantier:
Revolution’s a natural desire
When we lack what our natures require,
But it loses its glow
When oppressed people go
From the frying pan into the fire.
From the archive:
IT COULD’VE BEEN WORSE
Democrats in the White House are scary.
Jimmy Carter and Bill made us wary
And relieved there weren’t more:
Mike Dukakis, Al Gore,
And spandexterous dullard John Kerry!
If freedom can come to Romanians,
Albanians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians,
Why must others abide
While their freedom’s denied:
Brother Syrians, Saudis, Iranians?
Last week’s verse:
There’s no benefit to coal
If you cannot dig a hole,
And the value is nil
Of oil you can’t drill.
Who would favor such control?
