Obama had drawn this country into a box

This has been a Burger King week, an absolute whopper.

So much news rolled into my den, I had to move furniture for it all to fit.

A few mornings ago, my eyes caught news of Ariel Castro’s suicide in his cell. My first thought was, “sweet!” Since my sentiment was so devoid of empathy, I re-thought it. After considering what he’d done and the cost of keeping him fed and watered for decades, I expanded my initial kneejerk reaction to, “very, very sweet!”

That wasn’t the only good news. A small tidbit reported Nidal Hasan had his beard forcibly taken off, which is apparently a big deal to Islamic nutcases like him.

Good. The only thing that could’ve made that news better to me was if they had let his victims’ families do it. I’ve heard some of them have relatives in Brazil and folks down there know a little something about hair removal.

This guy was responsible for what was labeled “workplace violence,” which we all know to be political nonsense. The administration made it “workplace” because they couldn’t have domestic Islamic terrorism happening on the president’s watch, damaging his image. “Watch” is an overly charitable use of the term since about all he watches are polls.

There was some very bad news that will get worse. Obama threw down a “you better not do it” gauntlet by drawing a line in the sand with his magic talking stick, the same one he twice rode into the White House.
