From beyond the Asteroid Belt came some national, international and intergalactic jabber kicked off by this from Sancho Panza, who was born in the Dominican Republic and probably speaks all the romance languages and Latin better than I speak English:
Happy New Year to you both!

Could this be the plan for a New World Order?
Cuba was fairly close and in the news a lot. The Cubans were asking the same question! Ike was president.
This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960s. His family was more fortunate than most as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro’s newly formed revolutionary paradise.
Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide, while celebrating the birth of our beloved America on the Fourth of July.
We began with a simple discussion about our country and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington ..
But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train.
“You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist.”
We sat stunned. He continued, “Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn’t sound like a radical.”
The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, “You mean just like Barack Obama?” He responded, “Yes, just like Barack Obama.” He continued, “We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied.”
“I remember my uncle saying after it started, ‘Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries, he will never come and take our family hardware store. ‘But that is exactly what happened, Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that nice, large four-bedroom home you own, it is now our property also, and you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house because others are moving in with you.”
The lesson learned from this discussion is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office they can take totally unexpected turns.
If you had asked us three years ago if we thought General Motors would be nationalized, we would have never believed it. We could never contemplate a country where the rule of law, the most fundamental building block of a justice society would be evaporating just like it did in Castro’s Cuba in the early 1960s.
But the news of injustice keeps increasing. Black Panthers are not charged with wrongdoing by the U.S. Department of Justice because their crimes are against whites. The bondholders of GM are stripped of their assets without due process by the government. Governmental leaders are bribed in full daylight only to have all investigation of the crimes stifled by the Attorney General. The U.S. borders are overrun with crime and illegal activity and the leaders in D.C. act as if it is important to protect the lawbreakers while the innocent are killed and overrun. When local communities attempt to enforce the law, they are ridiculed and threatened as racists and bigots. They are sued by the very administration entrusted with enforcing the law.
Without the rule of law the U.S. Constitution is a sham. Without the rule of law our beloved America is swiftly becoming a country where only the well connected and politically powerful will be safe. As Michelle Malkin has so eloquently explained in her recent book, a culture of corruption has replaced honest government.
The only way this problem will be fixed is by massive citizen action. All honest citizens that want to be treated equally must come together and demand that the favoritism, the bribes, the uneven enforcement of law end now. And yes, it can happen here.
A year ago I made the statement that “I didn’t believe the President knows what he is doing.” My friend said “Oh yes he does” Back then I didn’t know what she meant. Today I realize she was right. He does know exactly what he is doing.
PLEASE SEND THIS TO OTHERS ONLY IF YOU WANT TO. … And may God save the United States of America !
Sancho’s reply to the fowarder:
Well, maybe to start enforcing the rule of law, G.W. Bush is prosecuted for mass murder, treason, hmmmm, maybe I can come up with other reasonable charges … how about terrorism? Oh, yeah, and everyone who voted for him and/or still support him is prosecuted as his co-defendant for same charges … Didn’t G.W. bail out GM and Chrysler? Oh, I already wrote about that this morning at my websites, replying someone like this wingnut who said Obama did this and did that. Not that I care a twit for Obama, but the people who attack him seriously need remedial courses in American History, or they could try just telling the truth. Like the Mexicans had not already overrun California, etc. when Ronnie Raygun was President, and nobody bashed him for it. Shit, Domingo, what’s the point in even getting involved in US politics? Oh, darn, you pushed Obama, now you are pushing Paul. Me, I’m hoping for an asteroid strike on D.C. when all the politicos are there – so much more thorough. I wonder how Fidel Castro feels about being likened to Obama? Bet he might have to scratch his noodle a bit over that one. Sloan
From another reciepient of Sancho’s forward, asking:
I only know Sancho Panza, who included me in this today, I suppose because he wanted company in his disgruntleness; I told someone yesterday to stop sending me forwards that sound off the far-right Republican/Tea Party press, and I put that onto my websites today, copy of which sent to Sancho. Don Q here, according to Sancho
Sancho’s reply to the guy who asked who I am?
Sancho’s forward and diatribe.
The Compassion of Dr. Ron Paul
This video seems aimed to persuade Republicans that Paul can win African-American votes away from Barack Obama, so Paul can gain the Republican nomination. Not likely, though, Paul will ever win any Jewish votes after his newsletter accused Israel of being behind 911 and he dodged every question recently put to him about that from the news media. Even so, Paul makes mountains more sense than all the rest of the candidates combined.
My reply to Sancho and his correspondents:
Do you know how Senator Obama voted?
If I had to hazard a WAG, I’d say Paul voted and railed against it.
Didn’t you rant for Obama sort of like you now are rant for Paul, Sancho?
Don’t seem to be no cure for those who invent what they want others to believe.
Don’t seem to be no cure for what so many bemoan, either.
We watched this corporate communist enfoldment with astonishment from the mother ship, then they kicked me off the wing (plank) again and down to earth I fell again and didn’t land on a soft spot that time either.
I frequently wish I could uninvent myself, and failing there, the ones who dumped me here. I sometimes wonder if they were so bored they hoped I would liven up their homo sapien TV programs. Maybe someday I will figure out how to look forward to the next day; so far though, the odds of that happening don’t seem too good. DQ
Yes, I think getting laid and drunk is a better option but here is the thing: Two of us here are “happily married”, which means we don’t see much point on it… and the other two of you haven’t had it for so long that the excitement might just kill you!
Have lots of digitalis for emergencies, but nothing that would help me drink a couple of beers, perferably with tequila chasers, and live to see the next sunrise.
The mother ship contacted me last night, but darn if I can remember what she said. Am about to lie down for another snooze, maybe she will try again.
Am not convinced any political forward I ever received, most from the far right, but some from other quadrants, was not jimmied in some way, or ways.
Hi Sloan! I just got off the phone with Waldo, the friend that keeps sending me the Obama is the antichrist emails! He, of course, is not the author of this junk but he loves to pass it on to me to irritate me… this one being about Cuba which is close by to you, I had the brilliant idea(not) of getting you to comment… like only know you how to comment! LOL
Anyway, he called to find out who you were and why he and his buddy Fritz were getting your emails… I told him that you were a friend of mine and I had invited you into the conversation because of your background and because I just wanted to bust his balls for copying me on his “patriotic” emails. Any way to make a long story short… I think it is best to not copy them on this anymore… they shoot strangers ’round here! LOL
Happy New Year!
My reply to Sancho:
Waldo is not in love with ALIENS? Darn, I was starting to have what seemed like a little fun. Tell him I said he should come over and shoot you for dragging me into it, knowing I would not let it pass quietly. Some friend, Waldo must be thrilled if he called you. You actually have telephones in America? I’m impressed. They have lots of ways of disposing of people in this country, shooting being maybe in fifth place behind drowning, feeding to sharks, dynamite, stabbing, butchering and serving in tourist restaurants, maybe then shooting, hanging from the yardarm. You guys up there in the land of northern aggression might succeed in breaking your boredom by visiting bigpinekey.com’s Coconut Telegraph. Comments actively solicited there. You might want to poke From The Right a bit, his daily column usually is at the bottom of each day’s outing. He tosses around lots of statistics, hates Obama worse than most anything. Vicious anonymous attacks especially appreciated by the host of that blog, the ruthless, immoral pirate, Capt. Conch, who actually is a Klingon but he had a face transplant a few years back and now he looks sort of like, well, an real ugly pirate.
