@consulardude @LuisMorenolg @CDCgov Sure. Slightly snarky, but here goes:

Decades ago, Soviet Communism knew that they could not directly confront the United States and the West, and win, so they decided on an indirect approach.

They needed to make our national security professionals ineffective.

@consulardude @LuisMorenolg @CDCgov So, they decided to infiltrate communist operatives into the US Government, not as spies to pass information, but in the support functions:

Financial Management
Inspector General

to totally constipate the support functions.

@consulardude @LuisMorenolg @CDCgov This would force national security professionals to use more of their precious time - each of us only has 168 hours each week - to engage re internal support functions, and less re confronting our adversaries.

Recruit to develop a similarly unhelpful organizational culture.

@consulardude @LuisMorenolg @CDCgov As you can see, over the decades, they were spectacularly successful, such that nobody knows where, or why, it all began.

That’s why CDC deliberately selected the absolute worst time of the year - and the transfer cycle - to spring this on the national security community.

@consulardude @LuisMorenolg @CDCgov It's definitely not a mistake.

These are competent professionals who know exactly what they are doing.

To repeat, it's not a mistake.

I was frustrated; now I am glad that at least one government program - albeit of the Soviet Union, which no longer exists - works.

@Bodhizen @bedini_i @hansonDigby @drmammal @DennisCardiff @waltshaub Actually, I think progressives - and perhaps others - should consider political bisexuality:

Especially in a non-competitive, closed primary state, unless you have personal political ambitions, register in the dominant party in your region or state.


@Bodhizen @bedini_i @hansonDigby @drmammal @DennisCardiff @waltshaub @fakedansavage Why?

To vote in the dominant party’s closed primary, either to decide the election, or to influence the nomination of the candidate likely to win.

In North Carolina, register as Unaffiliated to vote in either party primary; take your pick.

@Bodhizen @bedini_i @hansonDigby @drmammal @DennisCardiff @waltshaub @fakedansavage This has absolutely nothing to do with your personal political philosophy, and everything to do with maximizing your influence.

In a red state, don’t complain about Republican primary voters; become one yourself, and vote for the more moderate candidate in their primary.

I’m here at @ChipotleTweets #900 at 1385 Conant Street, Suite A, @CityofMaumee @ohgov and I cannot locate any Historical Marker.

What (didn’t) happen here Monday April 13, 2015, changed the course of history.

We have all seen #Afghanistan fall to the Taliban today.

At best, Afghan women and girls face an uncertain future.

One reason why, is because of what (didn’t) happen at Chipotle #900 in Maumee, Ohio, Monday, April 13, 2015.

First, on Sunday, April 12, 2015, @HillaryClinton announced her candidacy for @POTUS. 3/
