Do you really take yourself that seriously? I lost interest after "1)". If you have ever been married....And if she hasn't left with half of your sh*t yet, I pray to our Lord Jesus that she has a bottomless script for Xanax so that she can (mercifully) endure the tedium of putting up with a dullard like you.
None of us are looking to win a Pulitzer for typing nonsense to people we never met. If anything, it is a testament to our over abundance of free time.
Personally, I have a choice between doing this....or watching the "reality" show about the daily lives of 3 or so pawnbrokers. And then there are the three shows about guys that clean fish tanks.....or the one about the guys that drive across the American heartland in a van collecting rubbish and then somehow convincing us that it is a lucrative and interesting endeavor.
So after turning off the tv, wishing it was summer and facing the grim options of either banging my head repeatedly against the wall....or doing this,....I chose the latter.
Christ! Is it really only still December?

Abbas:

*Financier of 1972 Olympic Athletes Massacre
*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 own party)
*no daily incitement to genocide, racism in schools & media

The best description I can make in refrence ME peace is stasis. There is so little going on that involves the principals right now that I'm considering a round trip to Mars. I'm so positive I could make it there and back without missing anything that I would bet Faith's farm.

Do you have a receipt that supports your claim about Abbas banking the Munich job?

Oh Crispies. You have met the enemy and it's you. I love you, Veeks, but you fail to see a worthy adversary that cuts through the chaff. She's slowly filleting you and the thing about it, you don't see the red streaks running down your shins. I sense an early departure for a pint or two of blood and back to school, but then, how could you know? Never, never, ever tackle a woman from MI unless you know what to do with her when you catch her. Your opening holiday wish for her was mistake. That snow makes anybody mean. But, this girl has talent. LOL LOL

Christ. I lost another post. WTF? Veeks had better leave this MI woman alone. She's performing surgical procedures without a knife. I'm crying here. He should have never offered his holiday greeting to a woman snow bound and in a not so holiday mood. I think I'm in love. The tears in my eyes are either sentiment for the holidays or laughter.

TRD,
Lest you get offended .....formative years. For one, you are proving F. Scott Fitzgerald wrong --- there is in fact, 2nd act in American Life.
The "Rinnisons Man" part more specifically refers to the fact that seemingly you have your toe dipped into so many different bodies of water... and somehow manage to pull if off rather gracefully without drowing ---

Now I've already made one 180-degrees leap of faith, to mix a few metaphors,
So thanks all.
----------
I know I'm in the wrong here, don't feel like you have to hold your tongue on my account, playa....

I thought the reference to F. Scott Fitzgerald was so......I dunno...."collegey". I remember how I felt when I read The Great Gatsby.....just to say I did. It made me want to go the distance and read On The Road. So sweet.

Now by you saying "playa".......would it be wrong for me to assume you are still a virgin?

I think your mistake was when you made that "180 degree leap of Faith". That was a wrong turn.

No, no, no don't flip on me now, RM. Not you. You're supposed to be the sensible, moderating, cool one ---> and I'm supposed to scorch Abu Mazen's empty-suit (although with his 200+ mill, he can buy a few 100,000 of them).

You're supposed to extol virtues of peace, while decrying/denouncing the unacceptable status-quo/impasse in peace talks. Cue VOP/Eran "...oh no'es, our great-grandchildren will never know peaaaaceeee, so let's surrender yay!"

Except there is no statis, not in M.E, not anymore post the gigantic misnomer that is Arab "Spring" . Either way, Israel is forging ahead, onwards & upwards. Leftists may "own" the country -- bagatz, histadrut, so on -- but Bibi, Stanley Fischer and Co. just refuse to surrender the country, whether to Muslims or to the Great Recession.

Put down "COD 4: Rhianna's Revenge!" for a sec. Real world, politics, middle east is SO far more expolosive, mysterious and fun than any blockuster or shooter. I am just only starting to realize it myself, though wading through Internet bullsh!t I can take or leave...

Hey, did you hear Korean tender lost, so Elbit and IAI are setting up an amazing Alenia Aermacchi M-346 based trainer? Like I told you before, IAF could still use you as a consultant, if not instructor if not operator.

TRD,
Over the past summer, I had occasion to attend an airshow at a place we call Selfridge AFB. It wasn't the Blue Angels, but rather the Thunderbirds. I must say......I was impressed. The thing that struck me the most was that the joint was crawling with Australian soldiers.
After watching these incredible American jets fly towards one another at 1000 miles per and and just miss....I kinda wandered off. I was looking for the Aussies. I don't know a whole lot about Australians.....except that they are fun fun FUN!
There was a sign across the field that said "Beverage Tent".....yeah......
So I drank plastic cups full of beer with these Aussies.
Having led the life of cloistered virtue that I had, it was a shock to my delicate sensibilities that partying with a gang of Australian soldiers could be so fun.
They called me a "little Yankee pirate" and taught me a song that may be their national anthem.......



They explained to me what it meant in the language of their motherland, but I lost interest after a few seconds, so I cannot remember what they told me.

"....And she sang as she shoved jumbuck in her tuckerbag......You'll come a waltzin' Matilda.....with me!

What do I think I'm doing? Sowing discord? You already did that with your disrespectful post to Faith. Don't blame me for her handing you your asz post after post. As you VERY WELL KNOW. You tried the same thing with VOP. Blaming me. I'm merely a spectator watching you trip, stumble amongst that fog of superiority and ego. If you can't cut the mustard, don't lick my bowl. You are a brilliant young man and I enjoy your posts. That doesn't absolve you from my critique of your posts attempting to demean posters who don't just drop by seeking adulation.
