We drove to Phoenix today to look at Ikea. Wow. I could furnish an entire home there... right down to the pictures on the walls and the forks in the kitchen.
We stopped by Cracker Barrel on the way home. I ordered fried chicken livers, fried okra, and turnip greens. I am a child of The South. DO NOT QUESTION MY FOOD CHOICE!!
There was a small piece of fried shrimp mixed in with my okra. Good thing I am not allergic to shellfish. That got me to thinking about The Old Testament. The majority of TOT is geneology and living guidelines. Jews are not allowed to eat shellfish such as shrimp and other filter-feeders. There are many rituals that deal with food and cleanliness thereof. So I wonder if we traced the geneology of those allergic to shellfish, if we would find they came from that ancient region of the country.
On the drive hokme I got into a discussion with scribe_ari
about the current situation in the Middle East and Israel.
The whiney bleeding heaerts want Israel to restrain. Watching the news (and it matters not what channel) you'd think that Israel was deliberately targeting civilians. Everyone is screaming for Israel to exercise "restraint". I have yet to hear anyone make the same demand of Hezbollah. They are the ones deliberately targeting civilians. They are the ones that are a UN recognized terrorist organization. They exist in violation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559. And what the heck is Kofi Anan doing giving the leader, Shiek Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, of the illegal organization, Hezbollah, a photo op
? That only serves to give legitimacy to a group of international terrorists!!
But the UN is doing what it always does: talk and talk and write letters and resolutions, until on of the groups has be shot, blown-up, exploded, and maimed into irrelevance. Then the UN comes in and say they are keeping the peace. Right... and I'd like to see how UN operated internet pedophile ring
and drug filled sex parties
are effectively keeping the peace. It appears the the UN is just there to serve the people that run it
The Middle East has been a hotbed of hate for ther better part of three thousand years. I think it is time to stop. Nowhere else in the world, is such violence and hate perpetrated on a daily basis. I frankly hope that Israel pushes Hezbollah into the ocean along with ALL those that support it.
Now on the US point of view, the terrorists think they have angered the USA. No. They have not. Not in the least. We are merely annoyed with them. They blew up some buildings and that certainly put us off. Angry? No.
Do you want anger? Go visit Dresden, Germany. Oh, that's right. It no longer exists (bombed to oblivion). Maybe you should instead visit Nagasaki or Hiroshima. Japan has lovely museums of what happens when the sleeping giant awakes.
