While masticating your recent post, not on line , but in my head, I find a striking similarity between what you know and our young people know. You FEEL nothing about your history, except what you read in books. You didn't live it. Never experienced the day to day anxiety, fears and ultimate satisfaction of stopping aggression in its tracks. Books are massaged by their writers, to convey their own particular bent. To really see it every day changes you and no books can tell you what it was like. In our country we had Korea, the first conflict we decided not to win, then Vietnam, which we very capable of winning. To read stuff on those events is nothing like I remember. So, I don't count. The young, including my Grandson in College, now know it all. As you do. Don't start clapping your hands in joy, because the snakes you are dealing with, your Grand Parents, and their parents already dealt with them in the only way possible. I was pissed off about Korea, Vietnam, even Iraq and Afghanistan (which an astute individual with Internet access knows we are being told we lost). So America has lost the last 4 conflicts we engaged in, according to the "writer" of the literature our young are going to be subjected to. Your Country ain't no different. You, are part of the problem. Not the solution.

Oh yeah...it's Wednesday, get yo nasty on.

I declare central Florida the telltale and you can't do a thing about it. It's not about the presence of the snakes in the Glades, it's if they are found above the traditional frost line indicating that global warming has expanded their range. You should be seeing armadillos on the roadside up there any minute then.

They are sub-tropical critters, equatorial even. Fair enough...call it climate change. Besides, is that even excessively cold for Minnesota in mid-January?

Bibi almost died watching the news.:-))))))
The 60/60 split you got it wrong, maybe my mistake. It just means that in total, i.e. all the votes in all the different parties combined comes out to a 50/50 situation. Still they count each individual party and not the total combined, that can come up in the coalition process when you need a majority of 61 seats or more and the winner will choose his partners in the government. Its a SHITTY process, I think the new guys will try to change that .

Usually, I'd complain that I'd be taking you with me in my phone but please...leave me home :)

At 60 F. they are laid out like pick-up sticks across Krome Avenue trying to get warm in the sun. At 49 F. up here they'd be frozen stiff and/or dead. Pray I never find one up here or your house is under water.

Oh, I get it, now. Duh! Chicken broth ain't like coffee. Eran's Man wants to draft Torah professionals into the IDF. Cool. I never realized they were exempt from Military Service. Like our current Administration, he's all about fairness.:<(

I think they even draw a paycheck for studying and arguing. It's a little unsettling when Eran declares his man the big winner and names him "Kingmaker". It's less so when the same language comes from the WSJ.

Kingmaker advocates giving up the West Bank but wants to retain Jerusalem. Think that it would entice those peaceful Pali's? No mention of the 67 borders. Same crap in a different wrapper. I laugh every time I see that 67 borders thing. They hauled asz and left the Israelis to be slaughtered.

I think they should be aiming for the 2067 borders, they may have a peace deal by then.

It's all show and no go while they are divided. I wouldn't make peace with the PA while Hamas was free to be the spoiler. They need to unify under the banner of negotiating a final solution that makes everyone happy, otherwise, they have popcorn farts

We are not as crazy as I thought. Our elections are over with 34 parties participating in the votes. Sounds pretty bad except if you look at another Middle Eastern country, Jordan. The elections are on the way with not fewer than 60 parties. Sick area very sick area. Its all Englands fault, we took their system. Shit.

The Egyptian election is still going on even though the vote was held last year. I guess if you don't like the outcome, you just riot until enough people die to force a no-confidence vote because the administration can't control the population.

Do you suppose this guy can read the shirt he's wearing?
