To Those Protesting The Israeli Action In The Gaza Strip
There are two types of people I’m seeing in these groups protesting. Those who would love to see every country under conservative Muslim law called Sharia which is completely opposite from most Western cultures and not a law I’d survive under personally. The second group are those who sympathize with the Palestinian cause and view the Jewish government as horrible bullies. Of course the irony in that is that this second group would be horrifically punished under Sharia law. The first group is actively seeking to change our culture and those folks are entitled to their opinion. If you’ve been wondering at the “sudden violence” in the Middle East, let me point out that Israel has been pummeled by Palestine (despite their complete withdrawal from The Gaza Strip) regularly for years. Granted, the following link is HUGELY biased but I’m afraid I don’t doubt the numbers.
From Israel’s disengagement from the Gaza Strip in mid-August 2005 until the Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip 1,826 missiles were fired into Israeli territory from Gaza, as follows:
15 August – 31 December 2005: 270
1 January – 31 December 2006: 1020
1 January – 14 June 2007: 536
Missiles/Rockets launched 2008
The previous graph shows a significantly lower period during an Egyptian engineered cease fire during which time Palestine was supposed to deal with Hamas extremists.
Here’s something to consider. If Mexico began to send missiles over the border into San Diego, and people were being killed in cafes, in buses, in their homes and the Mexican government not only didn’t stop the bombings, but VOTED THEM INTO GOVERNMENT POSITIONS wouldn’t we be pissed off? Yes, we would. Let’s face it. We’d kick their ass. A controversial perspective, I know.
To The Idiot Economists
Let me get this straight. You’re going on and on about the amount that an auto worker supposedly makes because he’s a union member. One comment said that a person with a high school education shouldn’t be able to make $29 an hour. What? So, we’ll bail out banking industries who pay their executives ENORMOUS salaries AND take the bail out money to go the FUCKING SPA but we won’t give automakers money unless THEY CUT THE PAYROLL? Oh. My. God. You people have lost your ever lovin’ minds. Unions keep this country from paying CHILDREN fucking ten cents an hour. If you want that kind of shit, MOVE. Preferably to Thailand. Just go. That’s what THEY do. No unions, child labor, all that shit is legal there. Just get the fuck out of this country that believes hard work NOT whether your parents could send your ass to college should be rewarded.

Bright spot in my weekend was finding out I could listen to all kinds of music…whatever my little heart desired. I love technology.

Please! Go to school. Go back to work. All this family togetherness is making me NUTTY.
(Perhaps the first two rants are explained by the last. Possible?)
