Palestinians got slaughtered on the highway of death and there were no UN resolutions condemning Israel? WTF? They're slipping.

While Stormin' Norman doesn't sound like someone who would outageously return soup in a deli... still, I am thinking we could retroactively apply a few UNSC resolutions against the Juices -- or at least a few dozen UNGA ones.

Of course, my bad. Sweeping the Jews into the Med is a positive action but admitting I recognize an enemy is a negative.

BritExpat sounds like PierreFrance minus 50 IQ points worth of (entirely unearned) pretense to some sort of euro-trash intelligentsia/aristocracy.

Btw, I was promised high *Kvel* quotient, but so far only moderate amount. We run the world, Rinnisons Man. Izzy is holding off 1.6 billion bozos and another bill of their various marxist, bleeding heart, neo-nazi.

BritExpat posts from France...hence the y'know, expat. Pierre had a remarkable library of liberal/atheist links to rely on but even empty-handed he'd smack the French right out of BritExpat.

(Pssst, Pierre was not born in France, either)

Hey, how the F' did I/we forget about 'MKOT'?

Truth be told, as much as I apparently annoyed him on a sub-molecular level, he had/has my respect along with Laura and few others. Maybe more so.

I know about Pierre, we used to argue in a different forum. And I feel you about your neighbor. Fact is, a lot of really smart people from Chicago have cruised through here, even a couple who weren't you. Whenever I find myself in an ethical dilemma though, I typically lean back in my chair, scratch my beard and wonder to myself WWMKOTD?

Nostalgia...at your age...

(Psst, who said I was in Chicago?)

So you remember 'My Kind of Town', too?

As for nostalgia... they sure don't make like they used to, eh?

You also misundertake me. Do not misundertake me. Do you remember that poem by George C. Scotton? About warrior/battle reincarnation? That's me but in a wider sense/context. I don't separate past, heaven, ecstasy, etc from The Moment.

Sirosleh, why are you not more exuberant? Sure, the Iranian bomb or another Holocaust may end as all tomorrow morning at 6:00 am-- as Lubavitch rebbe famously said... But man, we as people embody THE ultimate greatnress and miracle/uniqueness.

Eternity, Allah cannot touch us, we collective give them the middle finger and it pisses them off. Sparta and Mohicans are still celebtrated, and compared to us what are they? NOTHING.

Every day, every success going forward is just gravy. Cheer up!

Do I sound melancholic? Sirosleh?

Crack it up to the time of year. All my Christian friends get a little crazy around the holidays and then calm down after new years which is what I'm seeing now. Wow, what a ride.

Still, you were right. There are people I'd like to wish a Happy New Year but they didn't swing by. You never know...it is a time of miracles.

It's not a binary proposition. There are 50 shades of not-melancholia. I prefer to see you as close to "exuberant" as possible.

And of course I am right -- what kind of a 'Know-It-All' would I be otherwise, huh?

Think about it, playa. We ARE the greatest & the luckiest. Neither eternity nor Allah have nothing on us. Not a thang. They can look, but they CANNOT touch.

F' the haters. Let's dance!

How could I ever leap to that conclusion? When Jews lay claim to the same space it's called land grabbing and dispossession.

Well, maybe not explicitly, but how will you accomplish the following uttered from your own thin cruel fingers?

"And yes, there will be only one state . Palestine, free from the Jordan river to the Mediterranean sea, with Jerusalem as its capital."

Reagan and 9 others tied for first, 15 presidents tied for second, 18 tied for third, and Obama came in fourth along with Jimmy Carter .
