Rep. Allen West (R-FL) gave an interview to Washington D.C. radio station WMAL on Friday, in which the shy and retiring former Army colonel quietly expressed a few mild criticisms of the Obama Administrations recently announced military cuts.
Also, hes just the tiniest bit displeased with the way both House and Senate Republican leaders handled the payroll tax cut drama at the end of the year. The hosts really had to work to bring Rep. West out of his shell...

The term “decimate” means to kill off one TENTH.
ONLY one tenth???????
Yagotta be kidding me.

“Barack! Where’s your snocone cart?”
“I traded it for these magic beans.”
“Let me see them. These aren’t beans, these are rocks.”
“Ohhh...they are magic. They changed from beans to rocks.”
0bama may well be incompetent. But those pulling his strings know precisely what they’re doing. It’s pure, naked, smirking evil.
The key is getting the dumbed-down American electorate to understand why this is a bad thing. Somehow have to relate a weak military to their ability to access their favorite electronic toys.

She’s probably a big fan of Walter Duranty, Uncle Joe and the Holodomor.
Actually, people of her ilk and inclination consider it a feature. Fits right in with their eliminationist worldview.
The Pakistani-Peruvian axis meets and converges with the Scandinavian-Slavic axis. Two vast, cruel and ultimately murderous world-historical currents have merged into a catastrophic flood. We here in America stand alone against it. "There is a tide in the affairs of men..."
