Short Post Day.

Saw this today and thought it worth sharing. You might have seen it but it is new to me.

Political Correctness: The doctrine that implies it’s possible to pick up a piece of shit from the clean end.

A day late.

Well, it was MESSENGER’s ten year anniversary yesterday.  The world is not a safer place, no lives have been saved, and milk still goes sour after a spell.  Kittens still die, killers still live, and Obama is still president.

But MESSENGER is one thing that seems to be working mostly as it was intended, so I am content, at least until Ebola or the wave of the world’s illegal immigrants swamp us under.

Two weeks ago as the wife and kids were still in the PNW visiting family, I was shopping for myself and muttering.  Muttering is something I forgot that single people do (or at least I did) and it came back surprisingly quickly.

Mid-mutter I saw a display sign that said simply:

Food Alternatives

Wow.  If I had checked it out I could have found an alternative to food, but I had a house to go clean and a MineCraft mine that needed digging.

According to Thomas Sowell, thinking may now be obsolete.  I think he is right.

About damn time already

Netanyahu finally says FU to Beloved Leader Obama.

Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel.

 

Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration “not to ever second guess me again” on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be “trusted” on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.

I hope our next president repairs our relations with just about every once-ally we had that Obama has shat upon, but no one more so than Israel.  The Euro-Snobs realize we’re about the only thing keeping Russia from taking over Europe, if he so chose.  But Israel, how could he have pissed on Israel?

Go Bibi.

Want to stop attacks on Gaza?  That’s easy – tell the terrorists to stop firing rockets at Israel.  The fact that the disparity in lethality exists is irrelevant.  A scrappy little dog keeps biting an even scrappier bigger dog with sharp teeth – when the big one finally leans over and kicks the little dog’s ass, no one ought to be getting pissed at the bigger dog.  Especially when there is a pack of little dogs going after the patient one.

But that is what we are seeing in Gaza.

“But LEMUR…!”  you say… “These are CHILDREN who are dying!”  

Yep, sure are.   Who are also being trained to do as their fathers are doing, which is always attack from behind the skirts of women and children, like cowardly dogs.

But no, it is easier to attack Israel, isn’t it?

Wow, they whisked away to safety pro-Israel demonstrators from outside the White House after being surrounded by menacing Hamas supporters.

Why not deal with the menacing folks?

They had to be rescued by the police from the radical pro-Hamas protesters.

So we are now supporting pro-terrorist organizations who threaten others?
