Man, someone out there needs a Fisking. I wonder who….
When will the apologists for the Palestinians learn that whatever crisis they are in…is of their own making? The answer is simple: NEVER.
Here’s the latest episode of the saga; fuel shipments to the Gaza power plant are terminated as a consequence of continuing rocket attacks on Israel. So what’s Hamas to do?
Hamas officials shut down the plant and plunged Gaza City into total darkness, said Gaza Energy Authority head Kanan Obeid. Minutes later, Gaza residents started a candlelight march as a protest.
Now who could they be protesting against? Hamas for not killing enough JOOOOOOS quickly enough? Nope, that’s too obvious. Remember folks, these Palestinians elected Hamas to do just that. And as a further consequence:
Health Ministry official Dr Moaiya Hassanain warned that the fuel cut-off would cause a health catastrophe. “We have the choice to either cut electricity on babies in the maternity ward or heart surgery patients or stop operating rooms,” he said.
Chances are they will choose to keep the juice flowing for the kids; after all, that’s their cannon fodder source of martyrs against those same JOOOOOOS.
It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out how to stop the crisis manufacturing in Gaza. And sadly, with the Palestinians that will NEVER happen.
ATTENTION SAUDI ARABIAN WOMEN: thanks to the generosity of the Interior Ministry, the Supreme Commission of Tourism and the Commission for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, you can now stay in a hotel room or furnished apartment. Alone! Without a male guardian! WOW! What an amazing development. ONLY a few centuries after the rest of the world…. NOT.
And we pay these fine folks close to a hundred bucks per barrel of oil.
One thing I gotta admit about President Bush: he really didn’t start aging (at least, as far as I could tell) until about one to two years ago. Then the gray hairs really started to pile on. He’s a guy who’s kept in excellent physical condition since he’s been in office.
The last time a guy in the White House was in his 70s, that was Ronald Reagan. Medical technology has advanced tremendously since then. And that’s why I don’t agree with Norris’ assessment of Senator McCain’s age factor:
“If John takes over the presidency at 72 and he ages 3-to-1, how old will he be in four years? Eighty-four years old — and can he handle that kind of pressure in that job? That’s why I didn’t pick John to support, because I’m just afraid the vice president will wind up taking over his job within that four-year presidency,”
I would have posted this late last night, but I was a little busy (see previous post):
On the Donks’ side, Shrillary got the most votes in NV, but Obama is claiming the delegate count there.
For the GOP: Like it or not, McCain is the front runner going into Super Tuesday due to his victory in the SC primary. Romney’s name recognition got him the win in NV. Fred finished 3rd in SC…but is it enough for him to remain in the race? Hunter is now out, and I hope he endorses Fred. Even with Jon Voight’s endorsement, Guiliani had better put some serious thought into continuing his campaign as well. Then again, Super Tuesday is coming up. I’m beginning to envision a brokered GOP convention.
After preparing my old iMac for sale (I’ve got a few potential buyers interested), I decided to go for it and Leopard is now a reality:
...and it’s turning out that it’s going to take some getting used to. The interface itself is a bit darker than what I’m used to, but then again, it’s more akin to the monochrome scheme I’ve favored for years. Camino hiccupped for a bit, and I actually had to buy the version of CandyBar which works with Leopard, so I could change some icons.
Oh, and one more thing: I have only 15 gigs of internal space left after the upgrade. This means I’ll have to get a new drive for the Official System…oh, 160 GB should do it. [Cracking knuckles]
On the eve of the NFC and AFC Conference championship games….
St. Louis Rams Owner Georgia Frontiere passed away yesterday at the age of 80. She had been hospitalized in Los Angeles for breast cancer.
She inherited the team in 1979 when her husband at the time, Carroll Rosenbloom, drowned while swimming off the Florida coast.
Frontiere moved the Rams from Los Angeles to St. Louis in 1995, a very controversial move at the time; I remembered I asking a lot of questions about it back then, but as it ultimately turns out, the move was beneficial to the Rams, who won a Super Bowl in 1999, and of course to the City of St. Louis.
My prayers go to her family, to the St. Louis Rams organization, and to the Fans.
One half of the most famous chess match in history is dead. As much as Bobby Fischer contributed to the game, he also contributed great anti-American, anti-Semitic tirades which, in my opinion, overshadowed his former career. Here’s just one of his quotes:
“The United States is evil. There’s this axis of evil. What about the allies of evil - the United States, England, Japan, Australia? These are the evildoers.”
Fischer chose the wrong side when he renounced the country of his birth.
You’ve all heard the phrase “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” That was penned by George Orwell in his novel “Animal Farm,” which savagely attacked Communism. Well guess who paraphrases the same quote!
None other than Bill Clinton, in referring to a lawsuit filed by Nevada teachers against that state’s Democratic Party:
There were teachers who filed the lawsuit. You asked the question in an accusatory way, so I’ll ask you back. Do you really believe that all the Democrats understood that they had agreed to give everybody that voted at the casino a vote worth five times as much as people who voted in their own precinct? Did you know that? There votes will be counted five times more powerfully in terms of delegates to the state convention that pick the delegates to the national convention. What happened is nobody understood what had happened. They uncovered it. And now everybody is saying, “Oh, they don’t want us to vote.” What they really tried to do was set up a deal where their votes counted five times, maybe even more, as much. So now they’re dealing with it.
I just got back from some errands and lo and behold, a former Republican Congressman from Michigan, Mark Siljander, has been indicted for money laundering, conspiracy and obstructing justice in helping finance an Islamofascist terror-funding “charity” group.
I met this man twenty-six years ago, when I worked at the radio station. He seemed like a nice guy, albeit a little “numb” when it came to his recent wedding at the time. He served only two terms in Congress, then got beat by Fred Upton, and he pretty much faded from the scene.
Until now. This REALLY pisses me off! Mark, you son of a bitch! I hope they throw the book at you!
Now what’s this bulls**t the ACLU is coming up with to help that disgraced Senator, Larry Craig? Sex? In a public restroom at an airport? PRIVATE?
C’mon guys…that’s what BEDROOMS are for! If you’re that frakkin’ horny, GET A MOTEL ROOM!
The idiots at the ACLU have a better Constitutional argument than this…crap.
Methinks it’s time for a discussion here.
Marvel has made a major change in one of its signature characters by returning him to single life…but they went about it in what would otherwise be considered an unconventional manner. Since I don’t collect comics as a hobby and don’t follow them voraciously, I can’t judge one way or the other whether this development will be good for Spider-Man…and Mary Jane for that matter.
So have at it.
Well, Shrillary didn’t have much competition, as most of the Donks didn’t show due to the fact that Michigan’s delegates may not be seated at their convention, because of the early date. Mitt cashed in on his old man, and he was born in Michigan to boot.
I’ve always admired Hewlett-Packard calculators. In my earliest college days at DeVry, there was a “friendly” rivalry between HP and “Texas Ignorance”; at various times in my life I’ve owned two of them: an HP-41C and later on, an HP-28S, which really pissed off my stats prof in 1991. So I decided to go back to my earliest geek roots to prepare for the future:
The reason I got this: I signed up for an investor development program at my place of employment. Last week I took a pre-assessment test, which I found out yesterday that I passed. I had one phone interview with a recruiter which went well, and another is scheduled for tomorrow. I want to obtain a Series 7 License and if I can get into this program (which I should know, one way or the other, in the next couple of days), my employer will sponsor me for the test. But I will have to put in some serious study time outside of work: 120 hours’ worth.
I’m serious. I want this.
It sounds like some sort of startup transit venture by Steve Jobs, but it most assuredly is not!
What makes me drool is not just the sheer thinness of it, but the option of a 64GB solid state drive! It’ll only be a matter of time till this, too, is available in larger sizes (so I can pimp out the Official System), and Apple is leading the way.
All kinds of other goodies available now, thanks to Steve.
