The Snap:

I was reading CNBC and The New York Times today and there were 2 quotes that made me think. They were from organizations that one would think have nothing to do with each other: Al Qaeda and the evangelical christian party of god.

The reason for the comparison is a question of which is becoming more irrelevant faster. Lets start with the evangelical christian party of god. The quote was from Boehner in an articled titled “Boehner seeking Democrats’ help on fiscal talks.”  So right away we realize that he is becoming irrelevant. In case you have been living on another planet, you must realize that Boehner is the leader of the MAJORITY party in the House of Representatives. So if he was actually relevant he would not need the help of the MINORITY party to get something done. So here is what he actually said: “It’s time for the president’s party to show the courage to work with us to solve this problem.” Now let me translate into English: “I have a better chance of having my political enemies agree with me than the party I actually am a part of and represent.” I kind of think this shows that he is done. He may be the Speaker of the House and get a good seat for the State of the Union Addresses, but beyond that he is irrelevant.

The other organization is Al Qaeda. In their prime they conducted devastating attack on September 11, 2001. Not only did the attacks kill thousands of innocent civilians, but it started 1 justified war and also a pointless waste of lives, time, and money as we hunted for non-existent WMD and yellowcake from Africa. Letss look at where they are now. They announced a new plan to destroy America on the 12th anniversary of the attack — to “bleed” America by “abandon[ing] the dollar and replace it with a currency of other countries that are not taking part in the aggression against us.” Really, this is their plan? They have went from flying planes into buildings to “We are not going to use your money!” Sounds pretty irrelevant to me.

Take Action!
