Given the winter we're having here in the NE, I would love to be in Berkeley with it's dream-like weather, ambiance and outlook.  One can understand why the City's Peace and Justice Commission sponsored a resolution to welcome Gitmo detainees to the city.  Peace & Justice Commissioner Rita Maran said the idea is to invite to Berkeley "the kind of people you'd like to have living next door to you or dating your cousin."   
As a candidate, President Obama happily referred to Guantanamo Bay as "a recruiting tool for al-Qaida." Once in office, he signed an executive order to close Gitmo within a year. Yet, as president, Obama came to see that it's a lot easier and more fun to bash Bush than to have to be responsible for what released detainees might do and whom they might hurt if released.  

 

Consequently, two years after his executive order to close the facility it remains open, and the trial of  Kalid Sheik Mohammed in NYC has been shelved.  So in a new act of high-mindedness, Berkeley's P&J Commish envisions Gitmo detainees dating your cousin.  The Berkeley City Council at least had the common sense to vote down the resolution 4-1 with a bunch abstaining. 

 

As one observer put it, "Frankly, my stand is ENOUGH of all city councils making stands on WHATEVER comes up on the world stage.  Nobody cares.  You don't know squat.  It's not your job."

 

 
Couple of creative ideas:  

 

  1.  Ask Hollywood celebrities to sponsor a detainee in their home to act as a mentor.  They could arrange dates and possibly marriages too. 

 

  2.  Have a reality-based discussion between liberals and conservates on what will be the aftermath of the changes in Egypt in Tunisia.  Will they go the route of Algeria after the FLN victory almost 50 years ago?  Could they have happened unless there had been a change in Iraq where a broad coalition now governs?  

 

 First side to inject vitrol or to accuse the other of being extremist loses.  Doubt this would ever compete with the Kardashians.  Looks like that idea will go the way of the KSM trial in NYC. 

 

A proposito Buon Giorno di San Valentino! 

 

Baci e abbracci

Quoting migliore:

Y'guys and gals are way too tough on the Kardashians.  They're obviously nice ladies and if they lived next door I would trade Shakespear lines with them.  They are very cultured...I think that's why they're so popular.



You do have a subtle sense of humor! rmac

Michelle,

We men need the example of women setting the standards for respect and civility when interacting with each other.  Be nice.

Now, now...Shakespeare...? That is giving them waaay too much intellectual credit. Someone once commented to me that their voices sound like "nails on a chalkboard". I have to agree. :-)

Kardashian[s]? What's that???? Or, what's "them?" Nobody and nothing that matters to me one whit. Bet they don't matter to you either one whit. Got another topic? One of real interest? Bet you do...!!!

Seconding Michelle, I too wish something might compete with the Kardashians. Recently read how much money they made this last year. Causes one to wonder. rmac

Sad to say those detained at Guantanamo Bay could be considered lost souls since there is now no place to send them to without incident. It would be nice to see something of real value on the networks. But; let's just say, I am not holding my breath. Happy belated Valentines Day to you too! xoxo G~
