Do They Know It's Ramadan Next Fall?
The timing of the Ramadan holiday next year should be on the DNC's master election calendar.

Why?

An "October Surprise" tuhrust scare (under the pretense that "last gaspers" are striking out) may be engineered to sway undecideds.

Key DNC staffers should be insisting on appropriate security briefings now.

4. A High School Friend and I...
... find sneaky ways to put a local/hometown sausage maker jingle in front of each other. She gets me about once a year, and vice versa.

Last one to make the other sing it in the old folks' home wins.

6. LOL! My husband and I harass each other with various obnoxious jingles and slogans--
Our favorite--"Everything's better with a dollop...a dollop...a dollop...of Dai-sy!" (Daisy Sour Cream, for the uninitiated).

3. Just Ask for It VERY Publicly, and in a VERY Timely...
... fashion. Then, if the Administration drags their feet, scream about it.

8. What, again?
Didn't we just have that? You mean, there's more than one?

(That's about the level of the knowledge of Islam on the part of a lot of American politicians, I suspect.)

10. I Suspect You're Right...
... about most, but I think the DNC top brass - alerted and reminded - wouldn't make this mistake.

11. Oh, I am not so sure about that.

Sure, it might make more unpopular among us peasants, but he is already the most unpopular ruler either Old America or BushPutinist Tyrannized Amerika, so that wouldn't matter.

Clearly, our rulers no longer require the consent of the governed in any meaningful way, so all that reamins is peasant crowd control.

National Security Directive 51 (allows for Bushler to fully take over the country "in the event of a nation emergency", and I mean FULLY TAKE OVER in ways that are far beyond historic precedent even in the other "doomsday directives" wirtten by Presdients when America was still free.

Warrantless wiretapping, which is only restrained so far as the Bushies wish to restrain themselves. So far, the benefit of camoflauging their intention outweighs the benefits they would get by revealing their true kinder and gentler nazi-selves.

In the event of an NBC "terrorist" attack (God Forbid), the cost of revealing whatever their Penultimate and Final Solutions to the Liberal Problem may come waaaay down, because of the fact that chaos almost always enables evil leaders like the Royal Bushies.

Oh, and don't forget the Military Commissions Act, which allows Bushler to designate any and every American an "unlawful enemy combatant" at his whim. I am sure that, following a Bushie-staged NBC "terrorist" attack, or even if it actually was terrorists without help form their Bushie Pals, he would be very restrained in his appraoch. :rofl:

And where, pray tell, will all these musilms, jews, black, homsexuals (you know...LIBERALS...can't call them by their raciual names, these days, that's just bad marketing) GO after being designated so?

To the $385,000,000 (that we know about) Halliburton Homeland Security Detention Camps that likely are already up across the nation. Room for 500,000 Liberals and Muslims THERE.

500,000/300,000,000 = room for detaining one of every 600 Americans. You think that will be enough to shut the rest up? I think it will be about 498,000 more than necessary, maybe 499,950 too many, but having these people off the streets will be of varying benefits to Bushie Tyrants worried about their precarious hold on the populace shortly after the "terrorisat" attack.

No, I am no longer sure that your assrtion is true, though for all our sakes we hads better hopw it is, because if it gives net benefits to the Bushies (such as a pretext to nuke Iran), it is VERY likely to happen.
