The Lost Balloonist

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below.

He lowers the balloon further and shouts, “Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?”

The man below says, “Yes, you’re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field.”

“You must be an engineer,” says the balloonist. “I am,” replies the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” says the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s of no use to anyone.”

The man below says, “You must be in management.” “I am,” replies the balloonist, “but how did you know?”

“Well,” says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you’re going, but you expect me to be able to help. You’re in the same position you were before we met, but now it’s my fault.”

Gaza Screaming for Attention

Beyond the Cusp

The Hamas supporters, approximately one-tenth the population, if that, are still rioting and causing damage to Israel. You probably have not seen that in the news and that is good. When a two year old throws a temper tantrum, there are two ways of handling this to prevent further outbursts. The first is to ignore them and the second is to have everyone in the room point at them and laugh for about a whole minute and then ignore the rest of the tantrum. The news media used to follow every single cry from Gaza as another proof of Israeli intransigence. This time they found those cries attached to extreme destruction which could not be excused, thus the media tired quickly and stopped their coverage. This did not prevent Hamas, and their supporting terrorists of Islamic Jihad, from continuing to fly kites and balloons with incendiary devices into Israel burning…

The Netherlands Approves Burqa Ban


The Dutch Senate has approved a law that bans the wearing of “face-covering clothing” in public buildings, including hospitals, schools and government offices, as well as on public transportation.

Although the ban does not extend to public streets, the law authorizes police to ask individuals to remove face-covering clothing to establish their identity.

Those found flouting the ban — which includes Islamic veils and robes such as burqas (which cover the entire face) and niqabs (which cover the entire face except for the eyes), as well as balaclavas and full-face helmets — will be subject to a fine of 410 euros ($475).

The new law, previously adopted by the Dutch House of Representatives in November 2016, was approved on June 26 by 44 to 31 votes in the 75-seat Senate.

In a statement, the government, which has not yet said when the law will enter into effect, explained its purpose:

Russia & US-led coalition should bomb Canada if they want to defeat ISIS – Trudeau gives ISIS shelter


ISIS terrorists flee to Canada not because they want to adopt Western values, but because they have lost the war in Syria and Iraq.
Russia had no mercy for ISIS terrorists so Justin Trudeau makes sure to give them shelter in Canada.
Justin Trudeau gives ISIS free housing but let the veterans Live on the Street.
Canada is spending so much on immigrants that they can’t afford care and support for Canadian veterans!
Justin Trudeau values those that try to destroy freedom more than those that fight for his freedom.
These men and women who serve in the Canadian armed forces are putting their lives on the line for Canada, Mr. Prime minister. Are their lives not important to take care of them? You take care of ISIS immigrants coming into Canada. You can’t take care of the vets of Canada?
