Here we are, another week of mystery abounds, and so I’m going to start out with one which I supposed would be on every conspiracy theory site ever invented: because it sure wasn’t in the news:
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh was stable in a New Hampshire hospital after he was seriously injured in a single-car accident Monday afternoon in Vermont, police said. Details of his condition weren’t released, but a law enforcement official told NBC News that Freeh suffered a broken leg, cuts on his head and other injuries.
Freeh, 64, was flown by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, from the scene in Barnard, Vermont, where he drove his gray 2010 GMC Yukon off the road and into a mail box about noon, Vermont State Police said in a statement.
Mmmmmm…off the road, and into a mailbox at noon? Who runs into a mailbox at NOON?
So then you have to ask yourself–who would want to kill the head of the FBI, the man who knows all the real secrets of all the politicians?
And speaking of nobody—-
Cops everywhere seem to have their hands full:
A naked man had to be sedated at a hemp festival in southern Oregon after police said he damaged cars, started fights and kicked an officer.
Nobody Knows how hard it was to get a 6’3″—- 250 pound wild man with no clothes on into a police car, and which brave cop grabbed him……and we also don’t know how many people at that festival just looked over and said—
“Wow man…check out that dude. That soda is really killer man…lets go get some, uh…look at those pigs man…and Hey! cool it dude!. Chill man… “
And speaking of killers….this could be GOOD news! And bad news…
An American convert to Islam who had gone to Syria to fight with the Islamic State, also called ISIS, was killed over the weekend, his uncle told CNN. The body and passport of Douglas MacArthur McCain, 33, originally of San Diego, California, was discovered by members of the Free Syrian Army after he was killed in a firefight with the group.
Okay, we’re sorry for his mom…but really, think about it: SOMEBODY from the Free Syrian Army found this guy in California and helped get him into Syria.
McCain was likely among the dozens of U.S. citizens that Holder said were involved in roughly 7,000 foreign fighters that U.S. intelligence agencies estimate to be operating in Syria,
And they WONDER why we want the border closed.
Time Warner is gasping for air. CNN is still downsizing. Like the rest of America, it’s getting rid of about 40 of its highest paid journalists, and replacing them with cheap labor. It might actually get better. Which leads me to my next two unknowable questions—-
Nobody Knows that when Columbus landed in Cuba, the natives actually thought he was God. He found this out because he captured a few of them and taught them as much English as he could, and they told him…THEY thought he was God. And so, he used them. He didn’t refute them. He let them believe it. He said this;
“These men are still traveling with me, and although they have been with us now a long time, they continue to entertain the idea that I have descended from heaven: and on our arrival at any new place they published this, crying out immediately with a loud voice to the other Indians, “Come, come and look upon being of a celestial race!.” upon which both women and men, children and adults, young me and old, when they got rid of the fear they at first entertained, would come out in throngs, crowding the roads to see us, some bringing food, others drinks, with astonishing affection and kindness. “
There you go. Pretend to be God, get trusted men to proclaimed you are god, and people bring you gifts! Great trick.
(Hey, it worked in 2008!)
And speaking of tricks, will they EVER send Lois Lerner to jail for lying to Congress? Will they ever get to see those emails?
But I do know one thing this week: The splash your head with ice thing going around is kind of silly, and if you have to be silly, then Dave Barry is your man.
And so I end another week, not knowing why Maureen Dowd can sometimes make sense, (It’s a contradiction in physics)–why America has to close their swimming pools in the middle of summer–why the bees are so tiny this year—-Why men would want to jump in and videotape great white sharks, and why I can’t be in a better mood after the last few weeks. Could be my surgery. (NOTE: ALWAYS put sunscreen on your back.)
Nobody Knows if I will succeed in getting my sense of humor back, but I do know…
It’s possible…I’m getting out my old Dave Barry books.
Forgive me, Ridley.
Obama support of the Muslims, is one of his biggest impeachable moments. Netanyahu has led his country with great courage. To have an American President’s actions in the Middle East, put Israel on the brink of extinction, is almost beyond belief.
Bill Whittle is at his best here.
On a personal note, just the other day, at my adult swim class, my good friend Ruth, the lady who grew up under Hitler, got in an argument with a devout Christian lady about how the Jews deserved to be attacked by the Palestinians.
I was in the middle of them both, and the old hatred of the Jews was still inside Ruth.
You COULD say that Ruth had been brainwashed as a child (by Hitler) and so, her hatred of the Jews was just so ingrained that she couldn’t help herself, but then again, she was telling me that she gets all her news from Al Jazeera now. I’m sure Bill Whittle is not being mentioned there.
Remember, Al Gore helped Al Jazeera news on our cable TVs. And Hillary gave it a BIG plug.
Ruth was saying that the Jews were the ones who broke the promise of Gaza and built settlements. I tried to explain the region’s history to her, but I was more concerned about stopping the heated passions.
And this is what we are up against. The democrats ARE working with the Muslims. And like Bill Whittle, we should all point out the hypocrisy of their support.
So, once again, Bill Whittle wins the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week.
He could run for President and I would be the first in line to vote.
I have stated my Nobody’s Opinion many times that Obama and Hillary used the ‘it was caused by a hateful video” excuse for Benghazi, in order to promote the United Nations wish to make it a crime to talk against Islam. (Not to mention hide his own crimes in the matter.) They could have cared less about the United States…it’s all global business now.
1. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”
2. “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
3. “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
4. “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
5. “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
6. “Islam has always been part of America”
7. “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
8. “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
9. “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
10. “I made it clear that America is not – and will never be – at war with Islam.”
11. “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
12. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
13. “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
14. “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”
15. “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality”
16. “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”
17. “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”
18. “We’ve seen those results in generations of Muslim immigrants – farmers and factory workers, helping to lay the railroads and build our cities, the Muslim innovators who helped build some of our highest skyscrapers and who helped unlock the secrets of our universe.”
19. “That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”
20. “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
Here he is on Christianity:
1. “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
2. “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”
So, when a high school in Colorado decided to make the kids pledge Allegiance to the United States of America in Arabic, and then saying “Under Allah” the principal got blasted by a lot of parents:
And to add insult onto injury, a CAIR representative said this:
CAIR representative Hooper told Fox News he was dumbfounded by complaints about the Arabic version of the pledge.
“How on earth is it un-American to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in another language,” Hooper asked. “It doesn’t make sense unless the people complaining are anti-Muslim or anti-middle eastern bigots.”
Here we go, if you don’t like what they want you to accept, you’re a bigot. Racist, hater, terrorist….
I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop, aren’t you?
You know, maybe we should just start calling Obama, Mohammed Obama.
So, let’s report that Mohammed Obama spent 3.9 million on two golf trips.
Yep, I’d say if it walks like a Sheik, and talks like a Sheik, it’s a Sheik.
Muhammad Obama, the Sheik of Allah, wants your kids to accept Islam and Allah.
Nobody Wins, when stupid progressive teachers embrace ‘Allah’ in our schools.
Kids can’t pass out copies of the Constitution on campus, but they can praise Allah.
Did you EVER in your wildest dreams think this would happen?
Brussels is the home of the EU elites, who get out of their limo’s to discuss how great the EU is. But…just how long do they think they can hold on to Brussels? Or even Europe for that matter?
Nobody Wins when the facts about Islam are ignored and their plans to take over the world by sheer population growth is laughed at. In fact, many European nations are supplying the rope by which they will hang…most of the Muslims in these countries are on welfare.
This is a video worth watching.
(Thanks to my liberal friend, JR)
Nobody Gets Email
I was in my local drugstore the other day, and I was talking to the makeup sales lady who was telling me how rude the Muslim women are when they come in to buy makeup. In fact, they buy the makeup, use it, and return it the next day. This is a great expense to the store, because they say they “only used it once” and want their money back.
They don’t watch their children in the store, and the children will grab candy and eat it in the store, and the mothers will refuse to pay for the candy saying that they did not give the kids permission to eat it, therefore it’s not their problem.
We could all get along if Muslims were tolerant, but they aren’t. and so, I found this email very interesting….The Japanese won’t even deal with them…did you know that? I didn’t.
It’s actually pretty smart. Nevertheless, if you Google a bit, you will find a few pictures and proof that there are Muslims there…but not many. (Dandapani…Nobody remembers.)
(Thanks to J.R.)
* No political leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation has visited Japan – not the Ayatollah of Iran, the King of Saudi Arabia or even a Saudi Prince!!
* Japan is a country keeping Islam at bay by putting strict restrictions on Islam and ALL Muslims.
1) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
2) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.
4) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.
5) One cannot import a ‘Koran’ published in the Arabic language.
6) According to data published by the Japanese government, it has given temporary residency to only 2 Muslims, who must follow the Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and carry their religious rituals in their homes.
7) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of embassies in Islamic countries.
8) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies
10) In the majority of companies it is stated in their regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.
11) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist, and even in the era of globalization they are not willing to change their Muslim laws.
12) Muslims cannot even rent a house in Japan.
13) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole neighborhood stays alert.
14) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic ‘Madrasa’ in Japan.
15) There is no Sharia law in Japan.
16) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim, she is considered an outcast forever.
17) According to Mr. Kumiko Yagi, Professor of Arab/Islamic Studies at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, ” There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam
” is a very narrow-minded religion and one should stay away from it.”
The Japanese might have lost the war, but they are in charge of their own country.
There are no bombs going off in crowded business centers, “Honor Killings”, nor killing of innocent children or anyone else.
Something to think about
Nobody Knows just why Obama and the Rino’s are crying out for war with Syria. Everybody that I read is pretty much guessing that it’s all to save Obama from his own big mouth. But Nobody Thinks we should ask the very old but very sensible question: Who benefits? It’s blatantly obvious that the United States citizens, would be hurt. We don’t have the money or the will to fight another senseless war in the Middle East—-but how about our elites?
Nobody Knows and wonders—-what and IF some of our entranced Senators and Presidents get some personal money out of this from…big corporations, or even worse…other countries?
Nobody Knows…how influential big corporations and Saudi money are in calling the shots in Washington D.C. It seems, every politician in Washington is controlled and by big wads of money. P.J. O’Rourke was right when he said we have a Parliament of Whores. Nobody Wonders if we can also add a recent gaggle of Presidential Whores to that great title.
Let’s go back to the first gulf war. Daddy Bush told us we were going over there to protect a defenseless country named Kuwait, and Saddam was a bad guy. Remember, we backed that ‘bad’ guy with chemical weapons, military hardware, and millions of dollars to help those poor tribal lords in Iraq fight Iran. We did the very same thing with bin Laden, in Afghanistan, to help him fight Russia
How did that turn out for us?
Daddy Bush gave our military support to those adorable Sunni sheiks in Saudi Arabia in order to protect them, and their family, and their oil with the FIRST Gulf war. Bush the elder put on a real patriotic display for…making himself look good and protecting the Sheiks. The propaganda was so good…we didn’t mind much, because we still had money.
Then we had Clinton protecting the Muslims in Kosovo in THAT civil war. Remember, there was another ‘bad’ guy…Milosevic. Nobody Knows how necessary that was. Clinton kept away from bin Laden, refused the man nine times, because bin Laden had relatives in the Saudi family. He literally ignored the bombing of the Cole, (We will FIND the criminals who did this!) and the first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was done by the Muslim Brotherhood. Clinton airlifted Bosnian refugees over here because he felt sorry for them. He dropped 80,000 into St. Louis.
After 9.11, Bush Jr. protected the Saudi’s kids and sent out planes to pick up their families here, while everybody else was grounded. Even though almost ALL of the hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, Bush blamed one lone man. bin Laden, and he kept inviting those old Sheiks down to his Texas ranch, where he could give them big kisses.
Obama just has the thugs into the White House.
Who here believes that George W. Bush didn’t know where bin Laden was for ten years…raise your hands.
(Okay. You there. Go back to your granola.)
Obama continued the Saudi King worship with low bows.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Jeb Bush is about to give Hillary Clinton, the butcher enabler of Benghazi, a metal of honor. Hillary has a Muslim Brotherhood woman as her assistant and she is now the right hand man of Obama.
Tell me, when will the American people get some attention from their Presidents?
All these years, our Presidents have been protecting the Saudi’s family…and we are still doing it. Iran is their biggest enemy. How nice it would be for them if we took out Syria, and then Iran?
You could say that our Presidents are doing this to keep us in oil, but we can easily get oil from other places, including our own country, and yet, we NEVER do. Our Congress AND President make damn sure we stay forever dependent on the Saudi oil.
Nobody knows, if the reason that rich people want the Presidency so badly is that the top politicians have their own very secret, and very lucrative contracts with Saudi Arabia? After all, the Saudi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood are both Wahhabi. It would explain why we have a Muslim sympathize in the White House. The Saudi’s could have told the Rhino’s at the top, that they wanted a Muslim someday, in the Presidency. John McCain could have been in on that deal. After all, he ran to lose, it was almost too obvious.
Are our Presidents and some of our Senators on the payrolls of Saudi Kings?
Because Nobody Knows how John McCain, a decorated war veteran, could say this:
The bloodcurdling cry of “Allahu akbar” is a war cry, and is meant to “strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers.” You can’t tell me John McCain doesn’t know that.
Nobody Knows if the Boston Mayor Menino who said when a reporter asked him what he’d do with Detroit “I’d blow up the place and start all over.” if John McCain would think it was okay if the Mayor said “Thank GOD!” after he did it? (And wasn’t THAT a racist statement?)
Nobody Knows why the democrats, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore helped get the network Al-Jazeera broadcasted into American homes, while in Egypt, the Muslims’ Brotherhood network has been banned. Al Gore made millions, but what did Hillary get?
Nobody knows why now, Ft. Hood was treated as a work place accident. Nobody Knows why American Tea Party is higher on the FBI list as terrorist than al-Qaeda.
Are our Presidents getting paid in secret by the Saudi’s to keep us at war? After all, a few top men making billions from secret payouts from foreign countries would be very hard to prove, and very easy to hide. Look how long they hid everything else? (NSA( We still don’t know who killed JFK, and never will. Did FDR make a deal that American Presidents would forever more protect the Saudi Family as long as a few key people at the top of our government got big payouts? Could the Saudi Kings have insisted that payout as long as America was kept dependent on their oil?
Nobody knows, but it would sure explain the absolute absurdity of the last four President and their actions. And when you look all around you, it’s the ONLY answer that explains it all.
If you think I’m nuts about this theory, ask yourself: “What have they done for YOU lately?”
Here in my town of Hazelwood, we had two community centers for recreation. The taxpayers, with their high taxes built both centers. ONE of those centers has now been changed into a Mosque.
Here is an article on WMD, on a very BIG Mosque being built right outside Washington D.C. The video’s on WMD website take you through the Mosque, and the woman’s narration is almost…chilling. Turkey does not allow Christian churches to be built, and the prime minister of Turkey, Tallyyip Erodogan, the man who is building this mosque, thinks Islamophobia, should be a crime. We saw Obama, Hillary, and Susan Rice push that agenda after Benghazi.
No matter— the American people didn’t buy that crap that Obama and Hillary were trying to sell. What is dangerous, is the help Obama and Hillary are giving to all the Muslim Brotherhood to help infiltrate America. It’s how Muslims do it in every country. They get in, on peaceful turns, and then they build the Mosques, and then, anyone who is not Islamic is ostracized, or killed.
The fact that they wanted to dedicate this in Sept 2012 should tell you something: That’s its all about Muslim victory.
Here’s the key: They will join “islamophobia” with the race movement. If you object to Islam, then you are a racist, therefore the blacks will be sympathetic to Muslims…they hope.
So…NSA, ask yourself—-Do you want your children to be controlled by the Muslims someday? Better think about it what you are doing. Cops everywhere are siding with the Muslims against good Americans and it’s almost scary. I heard a story today about a man in New York who was threatened by his local police when he complained about his new Muslim neighbors.
Obamacare is not the only thing being shoved down our throats. And my heart goes out to the 10,000 people who live in this little town. And isn’t it funny? The road it’s built on is called, “Good Luck Road.”
They’re going to need it.
For those of you who have been following the blog, you may have noticed the, always contentious arguments of amfortas and I. He being a proud British subject, loyal to the Queen, and me being the cantankerous American, loyal to my country, and my ancestors. We have often argued our case, neither one coming out the winner, although, we both give it a good try.
Sometimes I feel as if the revolution is still being fought. And yes, I am proud that Americans won against the great British empire, but amfortas doesn’t see it that way. To him, we were recalcitrant children—-spoiled and ungrateful brats.
But I had to laugh today, as I see, the attitude of the good amfortas was fostered not in this century, but in way back in 1705. Surprisingly, (or not) the attitudes of the good British citizen has not changed.
I was just reading about when I came upon Robert Beverley, an early historian of Virginia, who was asked by an English book dealer in 1703, to appraise the British Empire in America. Here’s some of what he had to say:
I can easily imagine that this, as well as all the rest of the plantations was for the most part first peopled by persons of low circumstances and by such as were willing to seek their fortunes in a foreign country. For its not likely that any man of a plentiful estate should voluntarily abandon a happy certainty to roam after imaginary adventures in an New World.
He goes on to explain that first, just the single men came over. And since it was such a hardship to get a woman that could “carry sufficient certificate of their modesty and good behavior” they ended up buying a wife at the price of 1oo pounds and hoping for a bargain.
And then he adds an explanation as to why the rather less than desirable British stock came over.
Thus in the time of the Rebellion in England, several good Cavalier families were thither with their effects to escape the tyranny of the usurper. And so again, upon the Restoration, many people of the opposite party took refuge there, to shelter themselves from the King’s resentments.
So, as it sometimes happens in every country more often than not, the King is rotten, and the poor citizens flee. America was a nation founded by people of “low circumstances” and I think that’s pretty much how amfortas sees me, as a commoner, lowly person on the lower end of caste, while he, on the other hand, is born of the higher bred of Royalty.
And, so…speaking from a DNA point of view, he is absolutely right.
He is proud of his British superiority, and well he should be. But I contend that some very great persons of very low circumstances, took the heritage that they got from the motherland, and made a glorious nation…although it is sinking fast.
Right now, both mother nation and her disobedient offspring are on the brink. While America has committed her amount of sins, Great Britain doesn’t have a clean slate either.
And so we remain, at a standstill. No doubt, we will carry the argument to our graves. Pointless, but never boring.
One of the complaints about John Adams, was that after he spent so many years in England as ambassador, when he came back to his own country, he was convinced that people WANTED to have the pomp and circumstance of Kings and Nobles, etc, and they made fun of him in Congress when he, as Vice President, wanted to call the office of the Presidency “His Royal Highness ” and other high sounding names.
The Congress mocked him, and put him in his place, thank God. All those years spent in Paris and England rubbed off. John was always trying to figure out political systems, and no doubt, since he was born in America, the whole European aristocratic system gave him lots to think about.
It might please amfortas to know that.
And so the fight goes on still: Should there always be a ruling class that knows better how to rule people? Or should, the persons of low circumstances, take back their lives from the aristocrats and oligarchs of the world?
And since there are no more free lands to run to, where do the lower circumstances go, and is it even possible for western civilization to join together once again to fight the upcoming war between Islam and Christianity?
Just wondering. Nobody Thinks, if we want to survive we must.
Terrorist or Boxing Brain Dead?
Nobody wants to know: Where were the tears from Obama, when he described how cold and heartless it was to place a bomb right at the feet of an innocent 8-year-old boy in Boston? After Sandy Hook, Obama was tearing up so much, people were handing his teleprompter Kleenex’s’. But this attack, left only a pretend to wipe of the corner of the eye.
Nobody Knows if it’s because only three people were killed, or because they did NOT use guns. And the guns they did have were illegal. Or more likely, they weren’t wearing NRA tee-shirts.
The democrats are having a very hard time trying to reconcile the fact that once again we were attacked by Muslim terrorists. The spin control experts went into full “let’s water that down” mode, and called it a ‘religious’ problem. You know…just like the Christians? No difference here.
For the last few days, the poor liberals are having the most frustrating time trying to find out what in the world caused these two normal Porsche driving, dope smoking, regular college boys to want to commit a horrible crime?
And one found the answer: It was Boxing. (via The Right Scoop)
Could the amateur boxing career of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased suspect in last week’s Boston Marathon bombings, have had a role in the massacre? That’s a question leading brain researchers at Boston University’s School of Medicine hope medical examiners look into when they perform an autopsy of the 26-year-old who was killed during a firefight with law enforcement officials early Friday morning.
Nobody Knows if boxing can be blamed for the two brothers shooting a cop in the head so they could get his gun, only to find out, they couldn’t get it out of his holster. But I think we can safely say that there might have been some logical damage in the brain department there.
And speaking of brain damage:
Brain damage or liberal?
Chris Matthews is upset too. He just can’t figure out, and cannot comprehend, how two young American boys, who were going to college in Boston, driving around in Mercedes, could possibly do such a thing:
CLINT VAN ZANDT, FBI PROFILER: No, it’s really coming together. I mean, there’s — as terrible as this case is and was, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of heavy lifting. We’ve got the two primary individuals. It’s obvious that they had hands on the devices. The pieces we don’t have, Chris, are where was their inspiration? Where did they get the guidance? Who taught them how to build the bombs? Where did they build them? These are a lot of questions.
MATTHEWS: Why is that important? Why is that important to — is that important to prosecuting? I mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? I’m being tough here. But I don’t know whether, when you look at all this evidence –
What difference does it make how anyone gets killed said Hillary Clinton. Didn’t Hillary say the exact same thing about the poor dead guys in Benghazi? It makes no difference how anybody dies. They’re just dead. Don’t judge. It’s all the same.
Can we assume both Hillary and Matthews have been boxing?
Boxing at the Justice Department:
On the other hand, Nobody Knows how the Justice Department made the big mistake, of arresting the wrong guy in last week’s Ricin scare:
During a court hearing yesterday, lawyers for Curtis contended that he had been framed and pointed investigators toward James Everett Dutschke, a 41-year-old Tupelo man with whom Curtis has feuded. Like Curtis, Dutschke is a martial arts expert, a musician, and a Mensa member.
SURE we are! He’s a Republican. They had the wrong guy, obviously.
(Nobody Knows how much boxing is going on at the workout gyms of the Justice Department, but Nobody suspects a LOT. )
And speaking of the wrong guy.
Boxing at the movies:
Oscar winner Ben Affleck is joining in the effort to promote the Live Below the Line poverty-awareness and fundraising campaign, according to published reports.
The anti-poverty campaign challenges those who sign up to live on $1.50 a day for food and drink for five days.
The figure is derived from the World Bank’s definition of extreme poverty. About 1.4 billion of the world’s 7 billion people live on less than $1.50 a day, according to the charity’s
So Ben is going to live on $1.50 a day…how? Will he park his limo in McDonald’s?
The real cause of poverty: Hint: it’s not boxing.
Nobody Knows it: but I suspect that after the internet taxes kick in, we will all have to learn how to live on $1.50.
Senate bill S.336, the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013, would address the longstanding issue of the online sales tax. The Washington Post has a good rundown that outlines in simple terms the issues pertaining to the bill:
To start, collecting taxes online in every state can be a technical nightmare for many smaller companies. The technical issues in mapping all the appropriate state and local taxes to their proper destinations can be complex and cumbersome for retailers that aren’t necessarily equipped with all the technical resources of larger companies. It would also require changes from many states and localities. Obama has indicated that he supports the bill, according to White House spokesman Jay Carney.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the Senate bill would level the playing field for small businesses and brick-and-mortar retailers that are undercut by online companies.
Nobody Knows how “level” that playing field is now, but right now, it’s the big companies that always win. What this really means is that the divide between the rich and the poor is only going to get bigger.
When America dropped the bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, the argument for whether that was a humane thing to do, is still being debated. Many people said that we should have continue the war and sooner or later we could have overtaken Japan as we did Germany, rather than killing all those innocent lives.
But..what many people don’t know, is that the Japanese had developed a nonmetallic land mine that could not be detected by any known means. They planted these mines in random patterns across the beaches of Japan and along all possible invasion routes. Estimates of deaths from those land mines alone ran into the hundreds of thousands. They tried in vain to find a way to destroy them. Dropping bombs from airplanes in Europe failed.
According to Richard Anderson, a renown staticist who was working on the problem with the Defense Department at the time—
One of the reasons why the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Japan was that all their experiments and calculations showed that it was impossible to destroy these mines by any other means.
So…if history repeats itself…we may all wonder about Iran: Will we ever see another nuclear weapon used in our lifetime?
And is the reason why our Congress approves such an unconstitutional measure of using drones on our home soil—is because they know something we don’t? Are there terrorists in the United States already with nuclear material? Some experts say it’s entirely possible.
Ahmadinejad has threatened to hit the ‘heart’ of America with some kind of devastation weapon. North Korea…is threatening New York. Obama says nothing.
Today we find out that when Obama was told about the attack happening in Benghazi, he told Leon Panetta to do whatever they felt necessary, and then Obama took off at 5 o’clock and nobody spoke to him again, even though the attack went on for hours… which means:.
1) He’s the most incompetent President ever in the history of the United States and just went off to have his big dinner and watch basketball…or
2) He ordered the stand-down in Benghazi and sacrificed those men because he didn’t want it to get out that the ambassador was helping supply Al-Qaeda with arms and weapons before his elections, and everything that happened following that was a cover-up.
3) Both of the above.
Nobody finds it less than funny that after all these years, our government couldn’t have come out and just admitted that the Japanese had land mines that so well protected their island, we couldn’t defeat them from the ground. It would have made a lot more sense. Was not revealing this fact a way to make us look big, and invincible?
“What we pretend to be defending as the “truth” is really our own self-esteem.” Thomas Merton “No Man Is An Island:
So..what is the truth? Obama lies. Panetta lies. Hillary lies. Who do we believe? Dick Cheney, the most hated man in America for years, said that his worst nightmare was to wake up to a nuclear attack on an American City.
Nobody Thinks….Hell, I’m not sure what I think, but I do know one thing…I’d rather be drinking Rum & Coke on the beach in Hawaii than thinking about any of this…care to join me?
The great library of Alexandria:
The most famous library of the ancient world was the one built in Alexandria, which was burned down…not just once, but many times. Something about conquerors loving to burn libraries…it’s just so exciting to keep the masses stupid. It was one of the greatest losses in the world….
The Alexandrian library flourished for several hundred years, and was the center of cultural development in the west. Scholars from every field of knowledge and every corner of the Hellenistic world came to learn, study and teach at Alexandria. Paid staff included grammarians, historians, astronomers, geographers, mathematicians, physicians, and poets. They studied and revised the works of earlier writers, beginning with Homer–the division of Homer’s works into separate books is thought to be a product of the library.
The first significant fire was around 89-88 BC. Egypt was torn by war and civil strife under Ptolemy VIII, and much of Alexandria was burned. The final fire was in 645 AD, when the Moslem caliph Omar (Caliph of Baghdad) conquered Egypt. The story is that Omar was asked what to do about the books in the library, and gave the reply: “If the books agree with the Koran, they are not necessary. If they disagree, they are not desired. Therefore, destroy them.” According to tradition, the scrolls were used as fuel to provide hot water for the soldiers’ baths for six months.
And just a few weeks ago…the library of Timbuktu was burnt down, by Muslim extremists, with pretty much the same attitude.
Evidently, there was no Koran in it.
SEVARE, Mali (AP) — Timbuktu, the fabled desert city where retreating Muslim extremists destroyed ancient manuscripts, was a center of Islamic learning hundreds of years before Columbus landed in the Americas. It is not known how many of the priceless documents were destroyed by al Qaida-linked fighters who set ablaze a state-of-the-art library built with South African funding to conserve the brittle, camel-hide bound manuscripts from the harshness of the Sahara Desert climate. The damage caused by the fleeing Islamists was limited, but irreplaceable treasures were lost. (When the French came, they ran.) The manuscripts cover subjects ranging from science, astrology and medicine to history, theology, grammar and geography. All are in Arabic script, in the Arabic language and African languages. The world may never know what it has lost.
Timbuktu used to be a city were people from different races and creeds live together..but in 2012 the Islamic (Tuareg nationalists rebels) came in, banned music, made the women cover themselves, and began carrying out public executions and amputations.
And Obama invites these people into the White House.
Since Obama made such a big deal about the knowledge and wisdom of the Islamic people, did he even mention this tragedy?
But this Nobody will remember…How the Muslims burned the library at Timbuktu….in 2013.
And wonder how any people—- could be so stupid.
Nope. Never heard of him, until last week when I was browsing through an old National Geographic and noticed that some of the pages in the book, were lined in gold print. As if, something was very sacred.
Gold, is the preference of Muslims. You many have noticed, Obama the Magnificent always has gold curtain behind him at the White House. All the Sheiks have gold cars, watches, toilets,— it’s the power color. They love it. So you can imagine WHY National Geographic had to do a special printing that must have cost a pretty penny, just because they were talking about Islam.
(National Geographic, November, 1987, Suleyman the Magnificent. )
And if you think I’m a bit peeved about this President’s actions, as it concerns the Muslims, you would be right. He has been silent about the latest “freedom” riots in Egypt. He has had the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House. He cares more about the Muslims then he does his own country.
That’s my Nobody’s Opinion, and it’s all based on watching Obama’s words and actions daily. You might not think so, but I do.
Whenever Obama talks about the “great” religion and culture of Islam, he’s speaking, like many Muslims, of wanting to go back in time…to the rule of Suleyman the Magnificent.
Most Americans think: Hey, they were all sand people until FDR gave the King a big plane with a revolving throne on it so that the King could always turn to face Mecca, just so that we could get his oil…weren’t they?
But no…that’s not true. The last great Islamic empire was during Suleyman’s 46 years of reign. Of course..he had to kill a few of his own sons to keep power, but what the heck?
This wasn’t all that long ago in the historical sense: It was the 16th century. The time of Charles V of Spain, Francis I of France—Martin Luther was trying to establish his brand of church, and Henry the VIII was busy chopping off heads. And then there was Ivan the Terrible…so from a Muslim’s point of view…he was right up there par for the course with all the rest of the bunch. And when he took Constantinople in 1453, eleven hundred years of Byzantine history ended. It shocked all of Europe.
Here’s a few snippets from Wikipedia:
Suleiman became a prominent monarch of 16th century Europe, presiding over the apex of the Ottoman Empire’s military, political and economic power. Suleiman personally led Ottoman armies to conquer the Christian strongholds of Belgrade, Rhodes, and most of Hungary before his conquests were checked at the Siege of Vienna in 1529. He annexed most of the Middle East in his conflict with the Safavids and large swathes of North Africa as far west as Algeria. Under his rule, the Ottoman fleet dominated the seas from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf.
Ferdinand and his brother Charles V were forced to conclude a humiliating five-year treaty with Suleiman. Ferdinand renounced his claim to the Kingdom of Hungary and was forced to pay a fixed yearly sum to the Sultan for the Hungarian lands he continued to control. When Suleman went into Baghdad, its commander surrendered the city, thereby confirming Suleiman as the leader of the Islamic world and the legitimate successor to the Abbasid Caliphs.
The law of the empire was the Shari’ah, or Sacred Law, which as the divine law of Islam was outside of the Sultan’s powers to change. Yet an area of distinct law known as the Kanuns (canonical legislation) was dependent on Suleiman’s will alone, covering areas such as criminal law, land tenure and taxatio. On the suggestion of his favorite doctor and dentist, the Spanish Jew Moses Hamon, the Sultan issued a firman formally denouncing blood libels against the Jews.
Suleiman also restored the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and the Jerusalem city walls (which are the current walls of the Old City of Jerusalem), renovated the Kaaba in Mecca, and constructed a complex in Damascus.
Yep…he was de man.
So, it seems we have our own Suleiman in the White House…issuing his own Kanuns, and we wonder if he will issue a firman denouncing blood libels against the Jews.
HA! Don’t count on it.
Today at the U.N., the General Assembly voted overwhelmingly and approved the de facto recognition of a sovereign Palestinian state. There were 138 votes in favor and 41 abstentions.
While Christianity is on the decline, the whole system being attacked…Islam has not changed since the 16th century.
The Muslims are a lot richer…thanks to the Christians.
So, I’m adding Suleynam right up there with Alexandra the Great, Attila the Hun, and Mao as powerful and wicked rulers of the world.
You’re never too old to learn. Here’s I thought they were wandering around in the desert for two thouseand years. Nevertheless…the West overtook them and they are still mad.
If you have lived long enough, you know this strategy…the strategy of using a strong offense to deflect a crime. When guilty…attack. And attack viciously. My first husband used it all the time. If he came home at 3 in the morning and I accused him of doing nefarious activities, he would attack. How DARE I accuse him of anything!
As a strategy, it’s very effective. Ahmadinejad has it perfected.
This past week, very damaging evidence has come out about the Benghazi raid on our embassy. It was so dangerous there, everyone had moved out but us. Attacks were happening in April. Requests for aid were refused, and the most damning evidence revealed by Glenn Back was that our ambassador was helping Turkey move shipments of heavy armaments into Sudan to be used by Al-Qaeda. In fact, Ambassador Steven’s had dinner with the Turkey liaison, and then a few hours later, was killed, and raped,—and then dragged through the streets. Notice, nobody is talking about that little tidbit much. It might make a few “gay” voters angry.
Obama’s strategy in the last debate, was to be offended at the mere suggestion that anybody of his administration was guilty of anything.
To make themselves look “respectable” they plan to investigate themselves. Hillary has put the “investigation” off until after the election, of course. We all know how that will go. Both are guilty of at best, horrible neglect, at worse–treason. Nothing will happen.
But the spin…the SPIN…is fantastic: Here’s a clever one: Americans all gathered together on 9/11, and now the Republicans are using a terrorist attack, and the death of four Americans, as cannon fodder for political points.
BIG BIRD! Romney wants to take away…BIG BIRD!
Another attack: Congress released names of people in Libya, putting them in harm’s way. Let us not forget the “harm’s way” that Obama has put ALL our soldiers in overseas because his administration has helped turn the whole middle East into a Muslim Brotherhood Hotbed of Jihadists.
And let’s not forget the good doctor who helped us get Bin Laden…rotting in jail in Pakistan thanks to Obama.
Nevertheless…his band of minions are coming out strong:
Speaking of the whole bin Laden thing..according to many reports, Obama had been asked many times..in fact for months… for the go ahead..but Obama waited, until the right moment: Obama waited until his State of the Union speech…so he could go over to Panetta and shake his hand in front of the whole world and say, “Well done.”
You want ‘political’? That’s political.
Listen to that Nobel Peace Prize speech..Obama says he knows it’s just the beginning of his life on the world stage. The Presidency is just a stepping stone where he will continue to work for “global’ works. Ask yourself: Why did Obama AND the EU get a Noble Peace Prize? Obama had done nothing— and the EU has been a disaster.
It’s not for what they’ve done..but for what they are GOING to do.
There is a group trying to destroy America to form an unelected global government. They absolutely do want a borderless world ruled by a few elites. Check out this EU poster….notice the communist sign in it?
These nut jobs are trying as hard as they can to mix up all the populations of the world into the Tower of Babylon FUBAR pot of chaos. It’s a plan. They think it will work.
Obama and Hillary want to put America into this “global” village, and they have both put America on the “We are so sorry…we need to tone ourselves down to fit the rest of the countries that don’t have anything.” pather…Have they not? All their words, all their actions…point to America giving up all her rights to other countries.
They have been working in stealth deals at the UN. They are planning to sign UN treaties, not only depriving us of our guns, but they want to give the UN sovereignty over all our laws. They would put us into the International Criminal Court, The Law of the Sea Treaty, where a good portion of all oil revenues would go to the UN to redistribute to other countries.
Putin, Chavez, Castro, and Ahmadiimjad all want Obama to remain President…because America will be destroyed, and they expect to get big dividends
On the Travel Channel today, they showed a Nazi camp that was built North of Los Angeles to be the Headquarter of the Nazi takeover of California when Hitler took office. It was Hitler’s plan to take over America, and the camp had all it needed to start operation. The FBI destroyed it right after Pearl Harbor.
It ‘s the same plan that the Muslim Brotherhood has, and Obama is helping them get as many Mosques and Muslims here as he can. Clinton did the same thing. He literally transferred thousands of Muslim Bosnians right here into St. Louis, back when he was President. WE paid for it.
My city is now training Iraq police.
They really don’t talk about this much, Western Nations trying to get Muslims populations to merge into ours–but it’s why Obama is bent on getting speaking against Islam a crime in America. It’s why the Europeans have let their countries be overrun with Muslims.
It’s part of the global borderless government that they are striving for.
BUT—it’s not working The Muslims will never tolerate anyone but their own. Thanks to Obama, the new President of Egypt, is praying for our destruction. Here’s the prayer:
“Our God, grant us victory over the infidels… Our God, deal harshly with the Jews and those who are allied with them… Our God, our God, deal harshly with the Jews and those who are allied with them… Our God, frighten their masses… Our God, disperse their union… Our God, show us your strength over them, your greatness over them… Our God, reveal to us your wrath over them, you are the Lord of creatures.”
One lady on Fox described it perfectly, “We have taken out dictators and put in psychopaths.”
Many voter would say, “But Joyanna, Mitt Romney could be part of the Global Government too?”
Well, he just might be. But, then again, his name is not Obama Hussein. That’s good enough for me. If I were MITT, I’d call Obama by his real name: Barry. Get the Manchurian Muslim out of the White House.
One step at a time.
Since the last debate, most everyone, on FOX and other TV stations are beyond comprehension about why the Obama administration claimed for weeks that the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack, but instead blamed it on a video. Everyone saw our UN ambassador, Ms Rice on five Sunday Talk Shows, saying with all her convictions, that the Benghazi attack was about the video. Hillary came out and made that long video and expressed how that horrible video was so bad, it was NOT made by the government!
Hillary was more appalled by the video than anything else. Both her and Obama were apologizing profusely. Then they spent $ 70 million dollars making an apology to the Muslims. What does that tell you?
Thank GOD for free speech, because some reporter at CNN got the dairy of the ambassador. The Obama story of “that horrible video” got thrown off the front page. The nation turned its eyes from the millions of Muslims all over the world burning our flags to the obvious blunders and sheer callousness of Obama and Hillary, and they had to quickly go into the funeral, WE CARE..mood. Nobody has any doubt that they knew it was a terrorist attack. They planned to use the event, to get us all used to the idea that we shouldn’t talk against Islam.
They might have even set up the attack, as some insiders have suggested. It’s evident that getting “hate speech against Islam” outlawed in America is on Obama’s wish list of “Things to do.
Days later…Obama made his big defense of “free speech” at the United Nations. He HAD too. As you can see by this video, he figured to show his hand now, was not smart. Better get reelected first.
Think about it. You could tell by BOTH Hillary’s and Obama’s profuse apologies that they believe, and wish with all their hearts, that to talk against Islam SHOULD be a crime in America, but sadly there’s that pesky Constitution. They were talking to the MUSLIMS, not us.
Since the whole Muslims world went on the rampage, no doubt many of these protest had been staged, and planned, specifically to FORCE America into thinking that the risk of talking against Islam was just too important. An exception should be made to Islam. All the Mullah’s have been demanding it at the UN…to make speaking against Islam a crime.
In other words, Obama wanted to use the moment, but…the deaths of the four Americans, and CNN finding the diary, screwed his moment up.
Obama arrested that man, no doubt to please the Muslims. Obama should have been impeached for that act alone.
Now that effort has come to a head with the new President of Egypt President Mohamed Mursi calling for enactment of an anti-blasphemy law at the United Nations.
In 2009, the Obama administration co-sponsored the UN’s free speech code:
The text of the resolution provided that “the exercise of the right to freedom of expression carries with it special duties and responsibilities”–and condemned “negative racial and religious stereotyping,” and stated that the media had a special “moral and social responsibility” to develop “voluntary codes of professional ethical conduct” regarding these topics.
Tell me..”voluntary” ? Do you NOT see the very danger we are all in with this man?
The FBI training manual changed. Nearly 900 pages of training that was considered offensive were deleted. Members like Congressman Allen West, Florida Republican, and Congressman Louie Gohmert, Texas Republican, were critical of the purge.
What many Americans don’t realize, is that if Obama is reelected, he can sign treaties. Obama can sign treaties with the UN that can take away all our right. Guns will be almost outlawed along with free speech. It wasn’t brought up in the last debate by chance, it was planted there. All they need is a Democratic Senate to do it.
Next will be the internet.
The good news is: We still have free speech. CNN, usually a defender of Obama, did some good reporting and got out the truth.
I don’t even want to talk about the bad news. You already know it.
