Lest we forget

Today is the 20th Anniversary of the Great Betrayal. Hong Kong was transferred from its rightful owners to the Chinese. Thus the great betrayal occurred. Why does China want to exert control over Hong Kong? Since the Communist party took power in China in 1949, it has consistently decried the “century of humiliation” that China […]

Now it’s time to make some decisions

America fucked up last night. They had a choice to make-and they chose the selfish option. Now they deserve to suffer for it. And suffer we will. For the short term, people will rejoice, however when people experience the effects of the legislation that he will propose-and the Supreme Court nominees he will name, all […]

The only 9-11 post you need to read today.

And I did not write it. But I wish I had. Jim Wright of Stonekettle Station did, and its worth the couple of minutes it will take to read it in it’s entirety.   15 years ago today 19 shitheads attacked America. They killed 3000 of us. And then … America got its revenge for 9-11. Yes […]

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela passed away at the age of 95 yesterday. Clearly the world has lost a great man. He was great not just because of his struggle against apartheid-but when the tables finally turned, he did not give into the natural instincts to take vengeance on his oppressors-but to seek a middle path that made […]

The chance of precipitation just went up.

Not rain falling, but bombs. Dropped from Israeli planes. The western powers signed an interim agreement with Iran last night. As expected a certain, rather stubborn group of folks is not happy about that one bit: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu characterized the agreement signed with Iran early Sunday morning as a historic mistake. Directly contrasting […]

People who always f*ck you over.

Today is the 25 th of October. And I can't think of a better reason to celebrate this day than it is the annversiary of another excursion into futility-namely that of the Charge of the Light Brigade! As is my custom, I repost an analysis I did here, many yeasrs back. Still seems true. Substitute […]

Who are you? The Maid?

One particular item I have neglected to comment on in the last couple of months, primarily because I have been rather busy, and also America has been involved recently in Benghazi! Benghazi! BENGHAZI! ( one of the series of non scandals that is warming the hearts of the moron class in America)-something a lot worse happened […]

Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher died today, at the age of 87. As a result, thanks to our British satellite system,  we have been watching voluminous coverage of the memories of her life. What strikes me the most is how very different it is from the gushing American coverage. It speaks volumes about the naiveté of Americans in […]

Don't cry for Britain, Argentina.

What is Spanish for, " Suck on this you Latin bastards?"   Of 1,517 votes cast in the two-day referendum – on a turnout of more than 90% – 1,513 were in favour, while just three votes were against. It follows pressure from Argentina over its claims to the islands, 31 years after the Falklands […]

It all comes down to today.

And don't kid yourself sports fans-the entire world is watching the US election. One of the things that has always amazed me now-through 11 years of living overseas, is how much of the rest of the world watches and gets swept up in the madness that is American electoral politics. The US election has been […]

Don't think they are getting the point here.

 I want write about the abomination that is the Romney campaign-and the failed dirt digging that is the Liars Club and their reaction to a reasonable statement. John Cole framed it well when he voiced the same sentiment I have:   What a crazy position for an American President to take- to actually focus on […]

Well, this just sucks.

Crank up the F-15's and bring out Slim Pickens on an H-bomb. My summer just got a hell of a lot harder. "All the signs are pointing to Iran. Only in the past few months we've seen Iran try to target Israelis in Thailand, Indian, Georgia, Cyprus and more, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said following […]
