The Prenuptials

An elderly couple reaching their 70s are about to get married, but before they say their vows, the woman wanted to talk.

She said: “I want to keep my house.”

He said: “That’s fine with me.”

She said: “I want to keep my Cadillac.”

He said: “That’s fine with me.”

She said: “And I want to have sex 6 times a week.”

He said: “Put me down for Fridays.”

Election Fever

999999My autumn trip to Myanmar coincided with the country’s general election, which resulted in Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy entering parliament with a majority for the first time, following decades of military rule. Everyone I spoke to about the election seemed to be cautiously optimistic – hopeful that the election would lead to real change, but wary about the ruling party’s willingness to make way. Aung San Suu Kyi herself appeared to be a genuinely unifying presence, calm, intelligent and dignified (a kind of anti-Trump), her image on posters, billboards and front pages throughout the country.

This collection of pictures is by no means a comprehensive account of the events of last November, just a few election-themed images that caught my eye.


What Israel Must Learn from President Obama

Beyond the Cusp

Lord Palmerston is reputed to have stated that, “Nations have no permanent friends or allies, they only have permanent interests.” The truth is so rarely touched upon between politicians and especially leaders of nations. All too often two nations bond over a perceived mutual threat, real or imagined, as there be little difference in the end, and this arrangement continues for sufficient amount of time for many Prime Ministers, Presidents or even monarchs to pass through under the calm of the arrangement. Eventually the day comes when either their mutually perceived enemy is vanquished or under new leaders who alleviate any threat perceived or actual and the two presumed friends no longer have that binding fear. This allows for future minor annoyances to rise to some critical moment or prove to be a permanent wedge between the leaders over time eventually having one side or both deciding to end their…

Laugh. It’s the Best Medicine. Then get serious again.


Obama and Hillary are evil and some Republican candidates are bad. Stay mad, but laugh occasionally because it’s refreshing. Then, let’s take America back.

Sometimes life is hard.

Yeah, but wouldn’t it be terrible if everything always happened just as we want it to?

This is pretty much how government really works. They just aren’t this good as telling us.

Jimmy Buffett manages to offend just about everyone while being funny as he does it. That’s good!

It’s about time for a drink.

OK, it’s time to get serious again.

Obama said, “You didn’t build that.” Yes we did; He didn’t, and He keeps trying to tear her down and to rebuild her in His own image.

Now she’s ours. We intend to keep her and to make her as productive, strong and hopeful as she once was. Xenophobic? Damn right.

We can take her back. Will we? You…

Facebook’s War on Freedom of Speech

It was only a few weeks ago that Facebook was forced to back down when caught permitting anti-Israel postings, but censoring equivalent anti-Palestinian postings.

Now one of the most sinister stories of the past year was hardly even reported. In September, German Chancellor Angela Merkel met Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook at a UN development summit in New York. As they sat down, Chancellor Merkel’s microphone, still on, recorded Merkel asking Zuckerberg what could be done to stop anti-immigration postings being written on Facebook. She asked if it was something he was working on, and he assured her it was.

At the time, perhaps the most revealing aspect of this exchange was that the German Chancellor — at the very moment that her country was going through one of the most significant events in its post-war history — should have been spending any time worrying about how to stop public dislike of her policies being vented on social media. But now it appears that the discussion yielded consequential results.


Why Are You Naked?

James' Funnies

A man was having an affair with a married woman for quite some time. One day, her husband comes home early from work. The wife hears him come in, jumps up and tells her lover to go into the bathroom and hide. The moment he dives into the bathroom and she hides his clothes under the bed, the husband opens the door and comes in.
He stops in surprise at seeing his wife stark naked. ”What the hell are you doing?”
Thinking quickly, the wife says, ”Uhm…waiting for you.”
The suspicious husband looks at her in disbelief and says, ”But you’re naked.”
Again the woman says, ”Yeah… I was waiting for you.”
The husband relaxes and says, ”Hold on, I’m going to jump in the shower. I’ll be back in a flash!”
The wife tries to stop him but he just ignores her and rushes for the bathroom. When he…

Islam a religion of peace?

The truth must never be compromised.

Aussie Nationalist Blog

Many Western leaders in recent times, most notably David Cameron and Barrack Obama, have continued to label Islam a ‘religion of peace’. This is particularly distressing, considering that Great Britain and the United States have always been, and supposedly continue to be, the two major leaders of the ‘free world’, in their steadfast support for democracy and freedom. To my mind, the implications of the definition of Islam as a ‘peaceful’ religion are twofold.

There are two possibilities, as to what this statement reveals about Obama and Cameron, and scores of other Western leaders. Firstly, it may represent that these individuals are genuinely oblivious to the threat that Islam brings to our society. Their intelligence may in fact be so low, that they are unable to connect the dots, to see the facts, and recognize the truth.

However, considering the levels of education of these two men, I consider this to be…

Who Can Believe Mahmoud Abbas?

After Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas threatened yet again that he would end security coordination with Israel, not only has he not ended it, but — luckily for him, as it turned out — it is now stronger than ever. The Israelis, it seems, exposed two separate Hamas networks in the West Bank, both of them planning a mass-casualty attack on Israel and the destruction of the rule of Mahmoud Abbas.

Mahmoud Abbas’s other threat, that he will dissolve the Palestinian Authority (PA), and force Israel to fill the resulting vacuum and incorporate its residents and territories into Israel, also turned out to be cow plop.

Both the Israelis and the Palestinians know that if the Palestinian Authority falls, the best case scenario is that Hamas will take over the West Bank, and the worst case scenario is a welcome mat for ISIS. The West Bank will either turn into an Islamic emirate, like the Gaza Strip, or another ISIS province. In both cases, whatever “achievements” the Palestinian Authority has made will be gone forever. The entire Palestinian national consensus government, including Mahmoud Abbas and his cronies, will be executed before the day is out and all the property they have amassed over the years will be distributed as spoils to the victor.

Mahmoud Abbas is fully aware that the last thing the West wants is yet another Islamic emirate. Many inhabitants of the West Bank are also fearful of falling victim to the Islamic religious fanatics who will set them fourteen hundred years back.
