As long as the world has survived.....and that I am stuck with winter.....I am also going to be force fed another Christmas. I really don't know how things work for you Jews. I suspect it is handled much more efficiently. What do you have? Hannacha? Excuse me. I know I spelled that wrong but.....well....you know. I want to state for the record that Christmas is a huge pain in the ass. It is a time when we are supposed to come together with our loved ones in a spirit of love and joy....and all that other bullsh*t none of us really believe in.
I'm trying really hard to focus now. We usually have a candle-lit gathering at my brother-in-laws house. We all exchange gifts, say grace...try to act real normal. It's going to take a lot of fortitude and planning.
So this is my scheme....I'm going to feign illness in order to stay home alone and enjoy a blessed night of total silence with my dog....who is by the way, a total a-hole.
Wow. All of the sudden I am in the spirit.
I love you guys.
Happy birthday, Jesus!

Oh......and to my fellow shareholders and all of the world's citizens that benefit by America's love....There's this:

It's eight in the morning. I slept for about an hour on the couch because my dog is sleeping crosswise on my bed and growls at me every time I even walk by the bedroom door. To top it off, it is blzzarding outside. In anticipation of not living to see this day, I neglected to push the giant, noisy, self-propelled snow throwing machine up the hill from the barn and put it in my garage. Now I am truly screwed. I have enough food to last maybe a month if I am resourceful.
I don't know if I ever mentioned this.....but I hate winter. I will go further; I even hate anyone that likes winter....because they are living a lie. I'm not leaving this room until June.

Keep the faith, Faith, the day ain't over yet :>)

At least it's a wet cold, right? I imagine that the Las Vegas natives who have adapted to 120 F. will perish in a dry cold from the coming ice age.

Hey Faith, long time no see

since this may be my only chance to ask you this: do you have ANY redeeming quality as a human being? Like, I mean, at all? Do you like ANYONE -- including yourself? Are you just a total sociopath?

I mean, take my Burkina Faso war-time buddy, Gray. Now he IS certifiably insane, psychotic.... but I think really deeep down, he still cares about something, about the US albeit in his own pervertse, profoundly anti-semitic way. Even 'Fearless Cartooni', though clearly straight out of the SNL sketch 'Californians', can be a real doll, as you might say. Or heckz, even tha sub-tarded jihadi-wannabe clown 'Ahmad-Hamas' who used to post here long time ago, had some charm about him/her.

What, pray tell, do YOU bring to the table? Hating "muzzies" doesn't count.

And yes, lady, I LOVE winter. All seasons, actually. Save for that fagglio Frankie Valle or whatever his name.

Happy Holiday.

No, wait... what?
That's exactly OPPOSITE of what I mean by "context & continuity" --- or at very least, NEUTRAL or seperate issue from it.
This threads charts our lives albeit mostly in barely perceptible ways/benchmarks. Especially once one has been missing for a year or 2. Mind you, I haven't even read back a single post, but the VIBE, the memories, the spirit of the Faulknerian past-that-isn't-really-past, is inescapable. YMMV.
And then there is The Conflict itself, which is the subject-matter of this thhread. And even there, this thread has chronicled some pretty crazy/exciting times and trends. Amud Anan was but the latest. Illuminating some things, and yet throwing other seemingly familiar things back into total darkness.
Foresight is the name of the game. Remmeber my "33 No's"? Now that Abbas has effectively tore up Oslo -- in the process not just embarassing destroying whatever little credibility Palestinians had, but also EMBARASSING the Quartet, including US/EU who acted as OFFICIAL GUARANTORS of Oslo as well as the UNSC Res 242 upon which the Oslo framework was based..... Unfortunately I was right about Abbas when you, Eran, NaNa and just about everybody else tried to "give peace a chance". I really, really wanted to be wrong on this one, trust me.
And know what? That's ok. Israel gave it a shot, even froze "settlements" -- even though Jews have all the LEGAL and moral authority to build in Area C -- again, as per Oslo, not to mention this little thing called Artcile 80 of the UN Founding Charter as it pertains to the relevant San Remo provisions formally adopted by its parent org. League of Nations.....But I digress somewhat.
Live and learn. Jews gave peace (yet another) chance. The one that, ironically enough, brought them nothing but shootings, stabbings, stonings and of course exploding buses, malls, cafes, discos, synagogues, dolphinarium... as a kind of "thanks, Palestinian-style".
So let's move on. No more land for peace. Only peace for peace. If Israelis are truly super-smart, creative, imaginative, inspired, resilient ---> they'll adapt and move forward with even more success.
As mentioned in the "Sparta" post, Israel has been such a small MIRACLE every minute of its existence, everything going forward is pure gravy. You haven't seen anything yet!
(Muslim oil won't keep them afloat to rule the agenda forever, you know. They are already starting to desintergrate and teeter on chaos even with 100's of billions in easy, free "black gold" revenue that the Free West kindly provided for them -- by, you know, the whole "explore-extract-refine-t ransport-insure-provide huge consumer market" thingie...)
Am Yisroel Chai, playa!
Speaka which, Commander you can tell how silly and bizarre the whole PC appearance of "symmerty" or "parity" of the 2 sides that the world community/MSM has been trying to shove down our throats. I mean, shall we take a quick look at the resumes of the 2 table-sitters?

Abbas:
*Holocaust-denier
*Financier of 1972
*NOT-President (no really, his term expired 4 year ago)
*no discernable skill or talent or achievement (other than graft)
*daily incitement to genocide, racism in schools & media

Benjamin Netanyahu:

*Democratically elected about to be 3-term Prime-Minister
*Sayeret Matkal commando
*160 IQ
*allows all religions to visit/pray in Jerusalem
*brother of the hero of most awesome hostage-rescue operation
*son of a reknown scholar & David Ben-Gurion's right hand man
*introduced Capitalist, Free-market reforms (see: "Start-up Nation)
*Tamar & Leviathan discoveries
*Only man to say "No" to Obama, Soros, Putin, Rhiadh, Doha, Dubai
*settlement-freeze to re-start negotiations(to dismay of his party
*no daily incitement to genocide, racism in schools & media

LOL, where's the symmetry? I mean I've heard his name before, but the more I think about it....Who the flyin' F is Mahmoud Abbas??!!

Between TRD, L-Dub and NaNa... being dressed-down here is something that's served me well over time. When it's deserved, of course. We all need all the guidance anywhere we can in the crazy, chaotic world... no?

So I don't take it personally. It certainly beats the ALTERNATIVE-- when nobody anywhere give a sh*t about anyone or anything else, anonymously or otherwise.
