What if the Second Coming has already occurred and no one noticed?

Hezbollah was formed as a response to the Israeli occupation of Lebanon. Hamas was formed as a response to the Israeli occupation of Gaza and the West Bank. Isn’t that a hint?

The standard football field or pitch with both teams and the referee on it has about the same population density as Gaza. How do you do anything separately from your neighbors, and doesn’t dropping bombs guarantee civilian deaths, given the standard blast radius?

Did you know that according to the UN official registration, two-thirds of the inhabitants of Gaza, a million people, are refugees … from Israel?

If Jesus came back for the second time, he’s probably on skid row waiting for people to recognize and offer help…but no one has. I’m sure that Jesus isn’t coming back with some fancy Mercedes and a timeshare in a gated community.

It really annoys evangelicals when they get wound up with their “witnessing”. It takes a bit for them to understand the implications, but they start sputtering after that.

I replaced the money header, Hipparchia, because things have changed.

The total data set of nations invaded by Israel isn’t that large.

I’m trying out a new plug-in, Jill, that is supposed to create a link to a commenter’s last post if they have a site with a feed. I doesn’t seem to work consistently, but I’ll give it some more time.

The presence of food is always preferable to the alternative, Kryten.

It’s easy to annoy ‘evangelicals’. 🙂 Some consider it a sport. For me, it get’s boring fairly fast. Not terribly imaginative. 😉 They tend to get upset when I tell them my ‘Christian’ credentials. LOL

Reality really sux don’t it? LOL

What do you think of Obama’s choice of Leon Panetta for CIA Director? 🙂

It could be your lucky day Jill (and anyone else who loves cookies)! LOL

I was digging through my boxes out in the back shed when my housemate came home from shopping. She asked what I was looking for, and I said I was looking for some cookie recipe’s for a friend. And she replied that she had a cookie recipe book a friend had sent her years go! *sigh* It was hot in that shed moving heavy boxes etc. Not that I’m complaining… much. 😉 LOL

The way they have screwed up the Intel community in this country, it really doesn’t matter much any more. People don’t understand the value of competition and tension among services, or that the final decisions were once made by the National Security Advisor because that was one of the main reasons for creating that position. It’s not clear what the DirCIA or the NSC does any more since all of their previous responsibilities has been parceled out. There are too many layers of management, and that helps no one.

The problem of coordination was due to an incompetent National Security Advisor, as that’s where the orders came from. If the NSC directed people to play nice, it happened, just ask Richard Clarke.

We are so screwed if this isn’t reformatted and organized in a more responsive way.

Panetta is getting a title without a job, because the Hedgemony couldn’t figure out that an order from the White House was all that was needed, not a new agency.

I think I’m gonna puke. 😐

Seems the Bushmoron is going to honor his moronic sycophantic ass-kissers with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. *sigh* Oh well, at least now we know what Blair and Howard get for being loyal Americans for Bushmoron.

US President George W Bush will grant former prime minister John Howard the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, in one of his final acts in his time at the White House.

Mr Howard, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and Columbia’s president Alvaro Uribe will each receive the medal at a White House ceremony next week.

“The President is honouring these leaders for their work to improve the lives of their citizens and their efforts to promote democracy, human rights and peace abroad,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said.

This morning Mr Howard told NewsRadio he was honoured to receive the award and was looking forward to meeting with Mr Bush and Mr Blair.

“It’s an indication of the very close relationship between our two countries,” he said. “I see this very much as a compliment to Australia.”

Mr Bush has awarded 78 of the medals during his eight years in the White House. The medal is the highest US civilian honour.

Howard to get US Medal of Freedom

AH well. As well as devaluing currency, Bushmoron has now devalued the Presidential Medal of Freedom to that of a leaky condom (made in China, of course). 🙂

“The President is honouring these leaders for their work to improve the lives of their citizens and their efforts to promote democracy, human rights and peace abroad,” White House press secretary Dana Perino said.

Words fail.

He has been passing those out like gum drops to everyone associated with the mess in Iraq. I would suspect that the International Criminal Court will include receipt of the Medal as part of the indictment for misdeeds.

Well… It seems you can forget about universal healthcare while Obama is Prez too. 🙂

Obama’s Pick For Surgeon General: CNN’s Sanjay Gupta

I could be wrong, of course. 🙂

13 Bryan { 01.06.09 at 9:59 pm }

At the risk of an avalanche of protests from the Obamaniacs, I have never viewed him as anything other than center right political hack from a big city machine.

He wouldn’t even be talking about health care if others hadn’t brought it up, and the selection of a corporate media mouthpiece as surgeon general is in line with the lack of enthusiasm for any significant change.

I will wait until he is actually in office before saying anything stronger, but those who were beating the drum the loudest for Obama made a lot of assumptions that they will soon regret. The main problem of the Democrats being in power is that they don’t have any leaders in positions of power.
