Can You Even Imagine?

March 31, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I can imagine a lot of awful stuff but this is the stuff that makes nightmares:  Kissing Shelton Adelson’s butt.

In discussing the Middle East, Christie referred to “occupied territories,” which Adelson sees as a slam to Israel.

Screen Shot 2014-03-31 at 8.55.01 AMNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized to Sheldon Adelson in a meeting Saturday for stepping on a fault line in Middle East politics during a speech he gave earlier in the day, according to a source familiar with the conversation.

Christie met with Adelson privately in the casino mogul’s office in the Venetian hotel and casino … 

Poor Chris, whose luck is running so bad right now that he couldn’t win a bet on a baseball game even if he had tomorrow’s newspaper, must have thought he could win the Presidency on one vote – Sheldon Adelson’s.  Hell, it didn’t work for Newt Gingrich, then it didn’t work for Romney.

If Christie had a lick of sense, he’d pay Adelson to support Rick Perry.

Thanks to David for the heads up.

    Well, AREN’T they the Occupied Territories?

    I’ve just been chatting with other friends and asked what a good term would be for “envirosocialist” which is, I guess, what I am. One suggested “fossil Fascist”. What do you think? Which one do you think fits Adelson best? Envirosocialist or fossil fascist?

  3. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    In a phrase, Sheldon Adelson = AIPAC. Old Shellie is a super Zionist somewhere to the far right of Netanyahu. One of the reasons he left the Democratic Party was his perception they were not as friendly to Israel as he would like. His other reason was taxes. Once Shellie became rich, he wanted to keep his money. He also may be the source of the myth that republicans give more to charity. Forget if the old buzzards actually paid taxes, there would be no national debt and less need for charity.

  4. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Referring to old Shyster Shellie as a “fossil fascist” would be too kind. Consider a string of every part of speech for which gohmert can be applied, add a few Urban Dictionary santorums and we might approach what a total gohmert he is.

  5. Don A in Pennsyltucky says:

    Dear Sheldon, the reason that there is a dispute is because they have been occupied since the Seven Day War. And if the USA were to look at these occupied territories with the same lens used to look at the Crimean Peninsula — well there’s no chance of that happening so why think of it?

  6. You’d think that Adelson would get tired of these Republican clowns kissing his ass. But I guess that the old pervert actually LIKES it.

  7. Does anyone else wonder if Shellie ever drags his comb across his ear? That is one of the lowest comb overs ever. As a folically challenged individual noticing the lengths some go to make the obvious worse always amazes.

    and to think Saddam hussein only got ignore 13 or 14 UN resolutions before HAD to invade Iraq.

  9. The next Repub Presidential primary crew is going to have the brownest set of noses in history. Which is strange given that almost every single one of them will be white.

  10. They are disputed territories. Calling them occupied implies you’ve already made the decision for who gets what in a final settlement negotiation.

  11. I don’t pay a lot of attention to Israel and the Middle East because I don’t have a dog in that fight and it would take way too much of my time to know what’s going on. But as far as “occupied territories,” I know you can’t name the second largest city in Northern Ireland without taking sides– it’s either Derry or Londonderry. And if you try to get out of an argument by saying you’re an atheist, you get, “Is it the Catholic or the Protestant god in which you don’t believe?”

    As long as running for president is a game for millionaires if not billionaires, candidates are going to kiss rich butt. The current crop are just a little more blatant than usual.

    All that money going down the drain again.

  13. Well, I am one Jewish New Yorker agnostic who regards the occupied territories as occupied, even if that means agreeing with Chris Crisco, whom I abhor. Adelson disgusts me, although not quite as much as the Koch brothers.

  14. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Zyxomma, I admit I am too young to know why post WWII the USA and its European allies created Israel. Why not give the Jewish refugees a part of Arizona? Rhetorical question. Pawns for oil, how sick is that, after The Holocaust to set up Jewish refuges as an excuse to defend profits on oil?

    However, my minor was in Comparative Political Systems with a focus on Canada, Britain, and Germany. I love everyone, I really do. Seriously, Holy Gohmerts, is it complex to realize world peace would be more productive than war?

    I’m good with all the religions of the world, until they pervert gods and goddesses to push control agendas.

  15. Alyssa Burgin says:

    Yeah, and I’m one Jewish Texan who regards the occupied territories as occupied, too. I also think ice is cold and the sun is hot. I admired Christie for a whole ten seconds when I found out he scowled at the ZOA guy who tried to “correct” him, but then I learned he caved. Too bad.

  16. Christie and Adelson, sitting in a tree . . .

    Hell, they deserve each other!
