that could be part of it ... and ensuring that the system was abused for the solidification of the power and comfort of the Muslim Brotherhood faction.
But, the current unrest is the dis-satisfaction of the other segments of the Egyptian populace and political activists in being steam-rolled by Morsi, the Islamist-stacked parliament, and the constitution they developed; asserting that their voice in resolving various domestics issues was not being heard.
Selective events in timeline outlined here:
http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/world/2013/07...
Nov. 28, 2011-Feb 15, 2012 — Egypt holds multistage, weekslong parliamentary elections. In the lawmaking lower house, the Muslim Brotherhood wins nearly half the seats, and ultraconservative Salafis take another quarter. The remainder goes to liberal, independent and secular politicians. In the largely powerless upper house, Islamists take nearly 90 percent of the seats.
Nov. 19 — Members of liberal parties and representatives of Egypt’s churches withdraw from the 100-member assembly writing the constitution, protesting attempts by Islamists to impose their will.
Nov. 22 — Morsi unilaterally decrees greater powers for himself, giving his decisions immunity from judicial review and barring the courts from dissolving the constituent assembly and the upper house of parliament. The move sparks days of protests.
Nov. 30 —Islamists in the constituent assembly rush to complete the draft of the constitution. Morsi sets a Dec. 15 date for a referendum.
Dec. 15, Dec. 22 — In the two-round referendum, Egyptians approve the constitution, with 63.8 percent voting in favor. Turnout is low.[while the Muslim Brotherhood turned out in sufficient numbers for the very 'favorable' vote]
and for brevity, I omitted physical attacks of Coptic Christians and secular activists and protesters by Islamists zealots.
It's deeper than corruption and graft.
After I wrote my post I did read more on the religious aspects and the Brotherhood's involvement ... but your post above fills in a lot of blanks so thanks for that ....

Once again, religion seems to be the basis for political and social unrest ... partly because religion is being used as a basis for creating a position of power and control.

SIGH!!!

Ah! The racket racket I'd completely forgotten. Good point!
Score: 15, love ... franko
I'll be happy when the score is 6-1 6-1 6-1 ... LOL!!!

WEll the women's final is over ... Lisicki was mentally worn out after beating several top 10 players and Serena, she hardly put up a fight ... Bartolli had the easy path to the final ... OH well, she deserves at least one major in her career.

I am pretty sure that the men's match will be a very tough match ... both players are at the top of their form.

I don't remember if 'we' went up Grouse Mountain and some other specifics ... in Vancouver, did remember seeing Gas Town, Old China Town, boat ride on False Creek to the 'island' that's really a peninsula. Markets, shops, and the night spots where the 'cool kids'[of all ages] hang. And the Asia West shopping, eating experience.
And then Victoria by day and by night.
My brother and father have often hosted guests from out of town and they know the lesser known gems to take them ... for example all the tourists pay big bucks to see the Capilano Suspension bridge ... but the locals know they can see a similar setting and bridge for free at lynn canyon ...

Andy win in all fairness, and of course being British and all
that, would be nice..I wouldn't miss tomorrow's game for the world.
the match starts at 6 AM my time so I will have the PVR set to record and I will "watch" it about 2 hours later ...

It has been my observation that the sort of people who rise to power tend to be the kinds of people who hunger for power and will do anything to get it ... you're not going to get very many truly socially responsible leaders at the highest positions ... they are "too nice" and tend to get pushed aside

Evening Krypt...I knew you would be happy, Tony too... and Grace
as it was a combined effort, the British and Irish Lions (altho'
mostly Welsh, lol) couldn't resist that. It's a brilliant result
and very well deserved. I loved the description of Leigh Halfpenny..the scoring machine...an amazing number of penalties he kicked. Good team effort.

I have had other friends tell me of the same experiences with thier dogs.

Ali seems to be of that personality as well ...
Is your beagle somehow related to mine? Sounds like mine!

You was unlucky with the Schnauzer Franko, normally very amenable
to being trained, that is why they are sought after by the police
for police work.
Back in the day I had a German Shepherd who was in my opinion sadly lacking in the brains department. Fortunately a friend
who happened to be a police dog-handler took me in hand, to train
the dog to police standard, I doubted it could be done, however, after two solid weeks of his training me to train my dog, the dog
was perfectly trained, came to call, stayed up to ten minutes, and etc., one thing he would not do, neither did I request it, was to train him to the arm...that way you have a lethal weapon on your hands he explained.
I should add this dog did not have a bad bone in his body, he would let anybody in the house, lick them to death.

Moving on....I rescued a Yellow Labrador. He had been tortured by his young master who got home from school before his parents got home from work. The dog turned on him, he was taken to kennels and advertised, I answered the advert. For me, he was good as gold. However his one desire was to attack anything that moved, including children. I had to walk this dog at 11 p.m when everybody was indoors, I had a grown man crying when he bared his teeth at him when he crossed our path..a police officer who attended my house after a proposed burglary, jumping over the adjoining hedge at the sight of him as I answered the door...the dog saved me from two proposed break-ins. I loved that dog.

Because of the fact that it was decided for me that he was a liability, I had to part with him, and gave him to a hotel as
a guard dog.

I do not for a minute think that Ali is nearly as unhandleable as
my Golden Labrador was, due to his unfortunate past, but would plead with Grace to work on training him to come on command.
It would even be a good investment to have a professional trainer
train him to that standard.
It could save a lot of heart ache.

El, Grace, and a few others, worked all day but it was anoter productive and great day. I have a computer that is so old, it has developed Alzheimer's disease. If I log in on my Master name, it is sooooooooo slow that it keep popping up with,"Scripts are too long," anI have to hit the prompt to stop running scripts on this page. If I sign in on my screen name, every fifteen seconds I get, "OOOOOPs your browser shut down unexpectedly. It keeps shutting down and I get no where. CANT WIN!!!! DONT know about self repair. It also freezes up all the time. Cleaned out the cookies, that is as far as my expertise goes. Went out to eat after work with a few co workers,and that was my day. I hope you whether is mor doable then what we have.SWELTERING!!!!!!!!!!1

That I did do. But the rain only came during the first 15 minutes of my drive (after I headed out) and ended in transit. I did take carry it to the restaurant where my dining and shopping companion (my youngest daughter) "supped" for nourishment before the buying began.

BTW, "your temp" exceeded "mine" today (at high of 72F). And the sun only showed itself this very hour (7 - 8PM o'clock EST) as it lowers while the clouds break.

Saw/heard sports update item about the final. Congrats to the winner after such a long, long try at it.

Also heard that the American twins nabbed the doubles championship. Congrats to them too; and they've won all of the grand slams in succession. WOW!

I apologize for the confusion ... I was still posting about the TV travelogue I'd seen (as I did previously). It was vicarious in intent.

The closest I've been to B.C. is a visit to Seattle in the mid-90s. But hey, I have cousins in Bellingham ... does that count?!:)
