A guy walks into a post office one day to see a middle aged bald man
standing at the counter methodically placing Love stamps on bright
pink envelopes with hearts all over them. He then takes out a perfume
bottle and starts spraying scent all over them.
His curiosity getting the better of him, he goes up to the balding man and
asks him what he is doing. The man says “I’m sending out 1000 Valentine
Cards signed, Guess who?
But why? asks the man.
I’m a divorce lawyer, the man replies !!
Aboard a plane, an announcement by the captain was heard.
This is Captain Sinclair speaking. On behalf of my crew I’d like to welcome
you again aboard ABC Airlines flight 007 to London. We are currently flying
at a height of 35,000 feet midway across the Atlantic, and I’m sorry to say that
we have lost power of all our engines and will crash into the ocean shortly.’
The passengers were obviously very anxious to hear that, but were somewhat
comforted by the captain’s next announcement.
‘Ladies and gentlemen, we at ABC have prepared for such an emergency,
and we would like you to rearrange your seating so that all the non- swimmers
are on the left side of the plane, and the swimmers on the right.’
After the passengers rearrange themselves accordingly, the captain made a
belly landing in the ocean. ‘Ladies and gentlemen, we have crashed into the

Judicial Watch, the organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained mission expense records and passenger manifests from the United States Air Force related to the June 21-27, 2011, trip taken by First Lady Michelle Obama, her family and her staff to South Africa and Botswana. Judicial Watch obtained the documents pursuant to an August 19, 2011, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Air Force (No. 11-1496)). Judicial Watch is investigating the purpose and itinerary of the trip as well as a breakdown of the costs to taxpayers.
On June 28, 2011, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request seeking the mission taskings, transportation records, and passenger manifests for Michelle Obama’s Africa trip. Documents were only provided after Judicial Watch filed suit:
According to U.S. Department of Defense’s published hourly rates for the C-32A aircraft used for the trip, Judicial Watch calculated the total cost to American taxpayers was $424,142 for use of the aircraft (34.8 flight hours x $12,188 per hour). (The C-32 is a specially configured military version of the Boeing 757.) Other expenses – meals%
Iain Duncan Smith acknowledged pensioners need “a little bit more protection and sensibility” from the state because the elderly do not have the option of working to earn more money.
However, he suggested there are flaws in the welfare system when wealthy pensioners have to be asked to hand back benefits that they do not need.
Asked about the issue of rich older people getting hand-outs, Mr Duncan Smith told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show: “There are lots of anomalies in the benefits system. We could go almost anywhere to some of the universal nature of some of these benefits.”
The Work and Pensions Secretary is under pressure to find £10 billion of extra welfare cuts, but David Cameron has promised to protect perks such as free television licences, bus passes, winter fuel payments for older people.
Yesterday Interccect hosted a lecture by Jodi Dean over her new book The Communist Horizon. It was my first time meeting Jodi in person after many years of online interaction, but more importantly it was a great lecture.
One thing that came up frequently in the Q&A was the issue of how we can know that advocating communism won’t lead straight to the worst excesses of Stalinism. She had addressed this question already in the lecture — saying, for instance, that the very existence of the question shows that we “know better” at this point and that there’s no reason to assume that history will repeat itself in exactly the same way — but she also admitted that part of her theory is that there can be no absolute guarantees in politics.
As a Soviet Ukrainian Jew, I have to wonder why it is not OK to discuss Nazism in…
