We purchased Basa from Walmart a year ago; it looked and tasted good. Being from Minnesota , I got curious as to where it came from. The fish basically come from a watered-down septic tank. No more Basa in this house. Now you may find Swai; just another name for Basa. You will also find Basa on some restaurants menus, possibly under another name.

Asian Catfish Farms.... You gotta see this!!
The next time you order Catfish, or any fish-- keep this video in mind. You should be asking yourself, "Where does it come from?"

Basa fish is just another name for catfish.

After seeing this video, I would never buy it as I don't like anything that comes from polluted waters in Vietnam or China or Bangladesh .
You can now cross catfish (BASA fish) off your menu... Just look for the "Made in Vietnam label."

Most of the Asian markets and restaurants use these fish from the Mekong river! This may also be the steamed white fish fillet they serve in many Chinese restaurants.

What a "Blame Israel"?
How about this????
I don't know why I was just sacked from my job with the Samaritans?
All that happened was a bloke phoned and said, "I'm Abdul Mohammed, and I'm going to kill myself. I'm lying on the railway track now waiting for the train to come".
All I said was, "Remain calm and stay on the line" ...
My father spoke it around his friends and my mother's family. I could understand a lot of what they were saying but never picked up speaking it. He never used it intentionally around us at home because he showed respect for his new country and insisted we stick with English.

I think I'm going to invest some time in an online course so I can follow through on my promise to the Blaming Iz boyz. I mean, if Faith can sit through four hours of Ben-Hur to learn about the Prince of Peace then learning Yiddish seems like the least I can do.

Reading all the comments, there was only one blind dooshbag that tried to justify that it was a Palestinian decision for the Palestinian peoples by the elected Palestinian authorities. I particularly liked the one about fair representation of this on major networks. Yeah, like that will ever happen. You know, all those Jewish controlled news organizations? I can't wait for our Sunday sermon from Soy Sauce on this one. His heroes. Think he'll be wearing his colors?

I wouldn't go there on a dare. I saw the regulars and it's the closest thing to "One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" I've seen. Ramboner is their key speaker and that Jefferson crackpot appears to be Nurse Ratched. The spud packer from IA wants his cigarettes and Ramboner is slipping that famous roll of tarpaper to Jefferson Twoof squeaker. Not even Yiddish would deter these patients. Not even our California Atheist could entertain himself anymore there without feeling like a bully of the disabled. Stick around and let's try to get Faith and Cheftell to go in on a foursome. Wadda a say? You wear your Commmander bars and I'll wear my stenciled boxers.

Gaza is supposed to be one of the most densely populated places on Earth and yet they decline relocation because the site is too rural and remote? I could practically circle Gaza in less time than it would take to drive to NaNa's house and that's about an hour away.

Someone's fibbing.

(don't you wonder what they're tearing the houses down to make room for?)

Hmmm...I wonder if any of them know Yiddish and would help a cousin out. Y'know, that it sounds bad is an added incentive in this case.

Reading the talkbacks to articles about local politics in the myriad Israeli news sites made me realized rising star Yair Lapid's reputation is rocketing sky high. The most common comment to articles is "I should have voted for this guy". Recent polls show that if the elections took place today instead of a month ago, he was the prime minister heading the largest party.

"From that day forward our boy Hercules (Yair Lapid) could do no wrong, he was so hot, steam looked cool"

They're actually oak leaf clusters but I know what you're saying. That's why I'm coming as somebody else...nobody doesn't like Alec Baldwin (well, maybe Kim's the exception)

Hey Eran.

Your boy has been getting good ink but I bet his mom misses the days when he was an honest television personality instead of a politician. Is he going to be the one who wipes the slate clean with the Arabs?

Sorry for the demotion. It's been a long time ago. Of course, if I had the Oak Leaf Clusters, I'd never forget it, either. Damn, I feel myself straightening up to attention as I visualize them. Cheftell may be coming as Linda Lovelace. Up for it, Chubs?

The Arabs will have to sort their own problems first, we have our own backyard to fix.

Yair Lapid is not a politican, he's an educator, and nothing can stop the train once it left it's station. Every day that passes Israeli politics looks a little bit brighter, the old dealers feel the favor of the public turning against them.

Netanyahu's days of the old and corrupt politics are over, his reign will be dictated by Lapid's terms and he will have to grow a spine. Like every serpent he will twist and slither but in the end he'll be subued, he's no match to the purity of the new politics. He can only look helplessly as the very rules of the croocked game is changing.

From Zero to Hero, just like that.
