I’ve been tubing a bunch lately so let’s do a round the tubes post. It’s full of good and bad BOOMS!
Important, Above The Fold Update!!!!!!
The IRS is listed as a customer of Sonasoft software – “Email Archiving Done Right”…
And Sonasoft evened bragged about being the backup servers for the IRS in a 2009 tweet.
You know what this means? Check my previous comment, now I want the IRS disbanded and everybody above GS-11 in jail.
Update to the Update!!!!!!
Now back to Veeshir making a Boom Boom.
It’s mostly about Iraq,
It all happened pretty quickly last week, but in case you haven’t noticed, Humpty Dumpty fell off the wall over there. The bonehead American news media affects to be too stunned to even ask the pertinent questions, starting with: is that all it took to undo eight years and — what? — maybe two trillion dollars in US-sponsored nation-building? Oh, plus 4,000 US dead and 50,000 wounded. So, my question would be: when do the political recriminations kick in? Pretty soon, I reckon, and when they do, expect them to be fiercely perverse. The theme of who lost Iraq? may cost more than who lost Vietnam?
For me, it’s pretty obvious, we let our enemies know we weren’t in it for the long haul, both Dem and GOP. Obama, as POTUS, is supposed to provide leadership but he ran away and now all our hard work in Iraq is undone as we’ve reinforced that we cannot be trusted to last.
The article does have this bit of optimism.
not much attention is being paid to Saudi Arabia, but note that it has been the chief sponsor of Sunni insurgency everywhere but Saudi Arabia itself, and that the genie they let out of that flask will probably come back and tear that country to shreds, especially in so far as King Abdullah at age 90 is a virtual mummy, and that many other clans besides the Saud tribe have designs on the throne
We forget that for much of forever changing rulers has meant civil war or at least a murdered king, “The King is Dead! Long Live the King!!!” That means we might have to change our maps to reflect that Arabia is no longer Saudi.
More good news from the middle east.
An Egyptian court on Saturday confirmed death sentences for 183 Islamists, including Muslim Brotherhood chief Mohamed Badie
Good for them. The International Community is, of course, in an outrage. They are on not on the side of civilization and law and order so fuck em.
I love this one,
Iran has deployed “small numbers” of operatives into Iraq to bolster the Shiite-led government there but there was no sign of a major deployment of army units, the Pentagon said Friday.
Heh.Just like us!
In Phoney War News, Ukraine declared a cease-fire against Putin’s “rebels”.
Putin isn’t interested.
Russia dismissed Ukraine’s declaration of a week-long cease-fire as an “ultimatum”
Putin, of course, is not interested in it being settled in any way except to make Ukraine back into a satellite state.
Care to dispute that statement?
A key figure in covert Russian efforts to destabilize eastern Ukraine is working for Russia’s GRU military intelligence service, according to U.S. officials.
Yeah, I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.
This is pretty funny.
The Vladivostok warship, a Mistral class LHD amphibious vessel ordered by Russia to the STX France shipyard
The Russian armament industry is old, crappy and built by commies. That does not make for good systems.
That’s funny enough, but having France helping Putin as they’re frowning at him over the problems in the Ukraine is pretty funny.
Speaking of provocative, murderous dictators trying to get more territory, China!
Chinese military aircraft once again flew unusually close to two Japanese Self-Defense Forces planes over the East China Sea, less than three weeks after a similar dangerous incident over the same area.
Why the hell not, Obama will take a week to “make a decision” and all he’ll do is tell both sides to step back.
Cuz he’s an idiot.
Let’s go to America, it’s where I keep my stuff and it’s going BOOM! in a big way, that depresses me.
First, here’s Obama and the Dems trying to turn around the looming real estate recovery.
The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit,
You know, the very thing that screwed up the real estate market a few years ago.
As FrnakJ said long ago, I don’t know if Obama’s trying to destroy America, but his actions make more sense if you assume he is.
It’s sorta funny that no matter what Bush did the Dems and their Minitrue minions “Questioned the Timing”, that of course stopped as soon as their God-President ascended the throne.
Lois Lerner’s computer mysteriously crashed, was thrown out and recycled 10 DAYS after House Ways & Means Chairman Dave Camp asked if the IRS was engaged in targeting on June 3, 2011.
Just a computer “Glitch” that is absolutely not at all believable or even plausible at a very convenient time. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.
Another story about a Dem acting they way Dems act, this one has a twist though that’s hilarious.
So some Dems are helping the establishment asshole, Cochran, beat the tea party terrorists trying to destroy our nation and
When a top Mississippi Democrat accused Lane “L.C.” Murray in a Facebook post of using shady tactics to help Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), Murray purportedly left a threatening voicemail to a Republican state senator who posted about the matter on Twitter.
But this bit is what cracks me up.
Murray says he didn’t threaten Smith—just promised he would beat him up if he didn’t
That doesn’t make any sense at all, but if Minitrue doesn’t cover it, did it happen? Not according to our social, moral, political and intellectual betters. You know, our smug, ignorant, conceited, self-proclaimed “Elites”.
I was going to do some border stuff, but accept that Obama is fucking us all and Texas and AZ are trying to save us against the power of the federal gov’t and it’s just too infuriating to really want to dwell on.
Let’s end on a bit of good news.
he suspect “began to walk away, turned and said, ‘betcha ain’t got one of these,’ pointing a gun at the [would-be] victim.
Wait for it….Wait for it……
“However, the would-be victim was carrying a gun for self-defense and he responded to the threat by shooting the suspect in the chest.
I don’t suggest Mr. Bad Guy go to Vegas anytime soon, he’s not very good at betting.
Oh, I almost forgot, I wanted to post the story about the World Cup that really interested me.
The last time anything interesting happened in the world of soccer, they made a movie about cannibalism.
