In a Presidential Address delivered today, President Obama
calmed Wall Street and the rest of the nation by reversing course.

Obama FP outsourced to Putin

Here is the text of the Presidential Address:

My fellow Americans, some of you believe that my “no negotiations” stance toward Republicans was ill considered and that by intentionally causing unnecessary pain for you, my Fellow Americans, I was just being nasty. Now, I can tell you why I had to do it.

As some have noticed, I have been a wuss in dealing with our foreign enemies. That was, I thought, the best I was able to do. Recognizing the pain this has caused those who want a strong President internationally, I decided that I needed to practice domestically in order to become a truly strong President internationally. Hence, I adopted a “no negotiation” posture in dealing with my Republican colleagues. I did it with great success…

At the End of the Day

The Slog

???????????????????A bay in the Greek Mani

My landlady has acquired a dog. Despite being all tongue, wuff and brain death, he is a lovable little chap. He runs around, stimulated by everything from a falling leaf to a running hose. And whereas our little community here consisted of dozens of cats wandering about on terra firma until a week ago, it now consists of dozens of cats perched on tree branches….with new dog on the block running from one to the other like a stage act balancing plates in the air.

However, the dog has one very unfortunate personality flaw: kleptomania. One of my beach shoes has gone missing. Nobody knows where it is. The shoe I mean, not the dog. This morning I caught him about to lollop off with my swimming trunks. Obviously, he thought it was a game. I didn’t. The crotch of the trunks has not…

Not accurate, not impartial: BBC report on murder in Brosh HaBika’a

BBC Watch

On October 11th a report titled “Israeli man beaten to death in West Bank settlement” appeared on the Middle East page of the BBC News website, pertaining to the murder of Col. (res.) Sariya Ofer at his home in Brosh HaBika’a in the early hours of that day.

Roughly an hour later, the title was changed to “Palestinians held after Israeli man killed in West Bank” and that headline stands in the current version of the report available to visitors to the website. 

BBC report Brosh

The first two versions of the report claimed that:

“The attack took place at around 01:00 (22:00 GMT) at the Shadmot Mehola settlement…”

That claim was later changed to read:

“The attack took place at around 01:00 (22:00 GMT) at Brosh Habiqa resort, part of the West Bank settlement of Shadmot Mehola.”

In fact, Brosh HaBika’a – a former Jordanian army base which later served as a…

Abbas Begging Using Same Worn Out Ruse

Beyond the Cusp

Palestinian President and Palestinian Authority Chairman and Leader of Fatah and the PLO Mahmoud Abbas spoke to the media this week claiming that the Palestinian Authority may not have sufficient funds to pay their employees in November because Israel still exists and as long as Israel exists the Palestinian Authority will not be able to run anything resembling a normal society unless the entire world stops everything and sends them money. Of course they will have the funds to pay the highest paid group of individuals on their payroll who are rewarded with salaries approaching ten times that of the Palestinian Security Forces or any average wage-earner on the Palestinian Authority payroll, these people of such spectacular accomplishments deserving such riches are, of course, the terrorists who have been convicted and are serving in Israeli prisons and the families of those terrorists who sacrificed themselves to murder Israelis, preferably Jews…

EU MADNESS: Everything but the standard requirements are standardised

The Slog

A failing currency and a pointless Passport

europasstitleOnly in the EU could something be illegally legal

Over the years, I must’ve thought, a thousand times, ‘if a, b, or c isn’t available easily everywhere, what is the point of having a European Union?’ Because surely, this is Europe without a unified anything; which I seem to recall being the situation we had before the EU, minus only the billions of Pounds a year in taxes. And as the only advantage I can see at all in the EU is some things being the same wherever you are – for any European citizen – then I mean WHAT IS THE POINT, SYBIL?

It appeals to my ironic sense of the ridiculous that the one thing they have standardised is the means of international travel itself – the passport. Everything else – legal systems, medicare, social welfare, taxation and transport rules –…
