As I pointed out the other day, nothing says you care quite like a Hallmark greeting Tweet:
So get those hashtag selfies fired up! We’re launching another episode of hashtag diplomacy; because it worked so well in that Russia/Ukraine kerfuffle.
Hollywood has jumped onboard with its own version called “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls.”
I hate to be critical because I know they care, and they’re doing it for a good cause, butt “real men”? – isn’t that rather insensitive, to gays I mean? If they objected to Boulder’s “Sea Level Is For Sissies” I can’t see how they aren’t going to be offended by “Real Men Don’t Buy Girls” - on multiple levels. BTW: Real Men don’t wear “Rasta” beanies either, Ashton.
Anyway, that’s probably why big time politicians like Hillary are sticking with #BringBackOurGirls.
Tweets the Lady who did not see fit to “brand” the Boko Haram a terrorist group when she had the chance:
This wasn’t just an episode of bureaucratic indifference. The Justice Department, the FBI, the CIA and many in Congress lobbied the State Department to list Boko Haram, but Clinton stood firm in defense of the Nigerian terrorists. Now, with the kidnapping outrage in the news, Hillary is tweeting away on behalf of the Nigerian girls. (snip)
“The one thing she could have done, the one tool she had at her disposal, she didn’t use. And nobody can say she wasn’t urged to do it. It’s gross hypocrisy,” said a former senior U.S. official who was involved in the debate. “The FBI, the CIA, and the Justice Department really wanted Boko Haram designated, they wanted the authorities that would provide to go after them, and they voiced that repeatedly to elected officials.”
Butt here’s proof that we’re too stupid to understand how “smart diplomacy” like Big Guy’s and Hillary’s works. By not fingering Boko Haram as a terrorist group, she managed to win their hearts and minds:
Because not being tagged as a “terrorist group” allowed them to get the micro-financing required to launch their own micro-business:
I think Stanley Ann Dunham, pioneer of micro-financing for small indigenous businesses, would be proud.

After all, what Mother’s Day gift says “thanks Mom” better than a selfie that says NO to slavery?!
So could we stop navel contemplating our own history of slavery that ended 150 years ago for just a bit and deal with the real thing that’s still going on today?
