Mirror Mirror, On the Wall..





Nobody's Fool: Hey, why is our 'President' rolling out the red carpet for the French President Sarkozy after just slapping and insulting the great Jewish leader Netanyahu?
That was the question of the day. I ought to know. I was stuck at home, all day, waiting for Glenn Beck's TV program. And of course, the famous meeting came on at exactly the time Glenn's program was scheduled.

Yes, enter:...the Sir Duke of French Poodles, and the Sir Hazard of ACORN. The gold Muslim curtain framing them both in the regalia of sultans. All they needed was girls with big fans.

While Obama delivered another one of his nebulous monologues, I noticed that he started calling, President Sarkosy, rather disrespectfully I thought, Nicoli.

Nicoli this, and Nicoli that...my very good friend, Nicoli, he said. (Where's the Pizza?)

Yes, the FIRST thing Obama had to say was, "Hey, Nicoli, just got back from having some good Chili at a local restarant!"
(Laughs from the press)

Okay Joyanna...so what? Well, the thing is, at the end of "Nicoli's" speech, he was sure to mentioned that yes, he did go to the restaurant and on the wall, was a big picture of Obama.

That was the last thing he said.

So what again, you ask?

And to that I say two words: Allister Cooke. Allister Cooke, for those who might not know, was a great British/American journalist. He hosted a series on Public TV for years, depicting American life..and I was a big fan of his. It was called Allister Cooke's America.

One night---I remember it well... he said, with that amusing soft smile of his...

"FDR was as much a dictator in a way, as Hitler. After all, his picture, like Hitler's was everywhere, in every restaurant, every post office, and most people's homes."

SAY WHAT? And that, coming from a graduate of Yale and Harvard?

Of course, I was shocked. So, I asked my mother, who lived through the war, and happend to be watching baseball at the time, I asked her if this was true, and she said, "He's right. His picture was everywhere. Literally. Every single restaurant. Every bar, every single room. Mr. Cooke is right."
Well, Allister had been in America throughout the war, I was, not even thinking about history and the consequences of dictators at the time. But an AMERICAN dictator?
In the year, 2000, I went to Washington DC...and I took a tour of the common sights. On the tour was the FDR memorial, and it's not EVER advertised anywhere, but let me tell you, it was built during the Clinton reign, (by them both, it was their dream to their idol) and it has their socialistic mark all over it. At the very end of the memorial etched in stone, was the statement; "FDR was the only President to serve 4 terms in office."

I remembered that stone, every time I would hear Clinton say he wished he could serve more. It was truly....scary.

So...the Duke and the Hazard talked about the "common world monetary system" whatever that is--- and the necessity to free Iraq, of course, that will happen...probably never.

They don't want to give a date on that.

And today, we heard that NASA engineers were basically "ordered" to work for Toyota. Are the Japanese going to be 'ordered' to work for Ford? So, what are they (the G-8 or is it G20 going on 30) really building up to?

If history is repeated..we can expect a future world war. Obama's picture might end up EVERYWHERE. Just like FDR. (Did FDR have little kids in school singing about him?)

The thought of another FDR dictator President is a scary thought, but hey...is there any thing that Obama will not be in control of by the next President election?

If he can make or break companies, I'd say he will be able to display his funky image just about anywhere he wants to. And he can call miltia out into the subways, as he did in New York recently.

It's the little things, that make you think. Maybe President Sarkozy was trying to tell us something. And I'm beginning to think---maybe...he's not the only one.

Amfortas remembers very fondly...:

.... the exquisit 15 minute essays that Alistair Cooke read in his mid-Atlantic accent every week in the BBC Radio.

He was Britains gift to America in response to that other American Reporter who told America of the Blitz on London and always spoke softly but fairly about we old-world folk.


Cooke Loved America. That love was in every line. He spoke softly too and with fairness. He described every facet of America from its Great Plains and Mountains to its Great people and monumental cock-ups.

Joyanna. One of the elements that attracted me to your 'Opinions' way back in MND days, was your capacity - so remeniscent of Cooke - for taking half a dozen quite distinct and seemingly unconnected things, observations, events etc and link them altogether in a fluid and engaging style.

If you ever manage to convince a Radio Station to let you 'do a Cooke', you would have a million devoted fans withing a year.

Heck, Gal, I would even lend you my beautiful voice to grace your witty and insightful words.

I forgot to actually address a pertinent point.

Mr Netanayu (sp?) is greeted everywhere because he is so grateful for the visit opportunity. He is almost the only National Leader who goes everywhere without his wife.

That's because Mrs Netawossname is a terrible harridan who bosses him around like a ... well, Jewish wife. But worse. Far worse.

The Israeli all know very well that their PM is a henpecked husband. It is not surprising that he gets all shirty and 'firm' and uncompromising with the Arab chappies. It is the ONLY area of action where he gets to have his own way. At home he dare not ask for a cup of tea. Yahweh alone knows what a dressing down he gets when he wants a shag...er.. pile carpet in the lounge instead of the throw-rug that she prefers.
