For a very crappy month, the end is shaping up on an upbeat, kind of.
I am not going to recount the tale of woe that was the first three weeks of July, I want to concentrate on the positive.
I guess the first upbeat moment of July was Sunday the 18th and happened here on the vine. I had a run-in with a Religious Right nut job of a troll… Yes it was a good thing, for the encounter cemented an idea I’ve been playing with. That brought me great joy, because it gives me something to focus on (something that has been lacking in my world for the past couple of months)
Then I saw a seed about Blackwater from a couple of months ago that instigated a quick news search for recent Blackwater stories. Low and behold my boys have just received over 250MIL in contracts with the US State Dept. and The CIA, freaking Too Cool For School!
I can not express how glad I am that the Operators of Blackwater are not on an Unemployment Line. What is so funny is, that it is Hillary Freaking Clinton and Pres. B. (for Boy, did I fool you all!) H. (for Hardy-Har-Har… cause that is what his administration is doing to the “Code Pink” type peaceniks) Obama, that are behind this windfall for Blackwater.
Truly I am flabbergasted… in a good way, but still… it’s crazy.
Here is some News clips from MSMBC: Countdown, The Global Report & Russian TV:
Countdown: The Nation's Jeremy Scahill - Blackwater facelift fooling no one - 6/24/2010
C.I.A. Still Hires Blackwater in Afghanistan, Elsewhere - 7/2/2010
Blackwater Is Back: Drinking and shooting each other on the job - 7/5/2010
The last news story (from RT - Russian TV) is about the Senate Hearings on Blackwater, the funniest thing about this whole dealio… the day after the hearings the second Contract Award was announced. Now that is funny!
I can unequivocally endorse This action by the Obama Admin,. Supporting American Warriors of any Stripe is a good thing, always.
