Remember when the huddled masses, yearning to be free looked to America? That was the Before, we’re in the Now.
To try to rescue the meeting (with Kerry about Syria V), Robert S. Ford, the American ambassador to Syria and chief envoy to the opposition, was sent to Cairo on Sunday to implore opposition leaders to attend the session in Rome.
We’re reduced to begging jihadis to talk to us.
Next, a little Ukrainian humor.
Eh, I wouldn’t click, they’re speaking whatever it is they speak in Ukraine. Here’s the story , apparently some geeks feel the need to have the gov’t want to kill them so they’re demanding their Internet Party (a political party)
“As a symbol of invincibility and power of Internet Party of Ukraine I decided to intervene personally into a destiny of this institution,” the man said. “I will not let any Rabinovich to make raider attacks on oppositional political parties. I will make every official directly or indirectly involved in this crime to regret about it.
It’s all fun and games until you end up in a dank dungeon, like the former PM.
In more “When a nitwit meets a nitwit going through the rye (whiskey)” news: Hannity V Ellison! No brains enter, one mouth leave!
In related news (no whiskey this time) we see that Obama and Congressional ‘Leaders’ are going to meet to avert the catastrophe that is sequester the day after it goes into effect.
My prediction of no budget, just another continuing spending resolution is looking better and better.
In ignorant fool v ignorant fool news, I’m linking the Grauniad to praise them not point and spit!
They’re making fun of the BBC for some global warmmongering idiocy they put out. Quoth the gruaniad making fun of BBC
Africa’s climate is certainly changing. Some parts of the continent have become 3.5C hotter in the past 20 years.
They call bullshit on that, I’m surprised about this, the Grauniad makes stuff up all the time, but good for them anyway.
This one should be hilarious, except it’s not. Some guy wrote a poem praising the Tunisians’ revolution, gets a sentence of life in prison the Thug of Qatar . Civil libertarians are OUTRAGED!!!!!! that a place that has no free speech doesn’t have free speech, so they reduced the sentence to 15 years. The head thugs actually thought that would make it all better. See? Funny but not.
Once again, I’m on the Nazi’s side. A retired soldier tried to fly a flag, HOA says no.
Listen, if you want to be free on your own property, do not cede control to an HOA.
Another attempt at a drudgetaposition
Libyan arms seized on way to Gaza.
Libya wants arms embargo lifted so they can import weapons.
Okay, this is fucked up. In the 80s I had a lot of money with Shearson/Lehman brothers. Shortly thereafter, like many others, I didn’t have any money with Shearson/Lehman bro’s. Fuck. So last year I checked on NY State’s “recovered funds page” and found that my 401(k) was still opened. My $2k had skyrocketed over 20 years to $3k! Eh, I got it when I needed it.
So what’s fucked up about that? This from Australia.
Under recent changes to the law designed to raise $109 million this financial year, deposits can be deemed unclaimed if a transaction has not been made on an account for three years or more, down from seven years previously.
Accountant Bryan Lukav oversaw an account for a client that contained the bond for a commercial property. He was advised to withdraw or deposit at least $1. If he didn’t, he was told the government could seize the account.
Fuck, they just have no rights.
3 chucklers today! I’m all excited.
First, I don’t get this. Russia is upset their hotdogs have horse meat in them. What? You’re afraid there won’t be enough insect and rat parts? Hotdogs, like food only not.
Don’t get me wrong, I like going to Vegas, but when people complain about losing I always say, “That’s why bookies drive Caddies.”
The only way a bookie goes broke is if he gets hit with a huge winner(s) or his protection money is too high. NY OTB went bankrupt for the second reason.
Now, let’s look at lottery, it’s gambling for people who can’t do math. The house takes a ridiculous percentage.
Illinois is bouncing checks to the winners.
Wrap your head around that, you have a 1 in 93 trillion chance of winning and that’s not enough for them to stay solvent. “Hey, you can’t win if you play” isn’t a good selling model for lottery.
The NY Post gets “cannibal’ , ‘BBQ’ and ‘Beauty’ in the headline! Bravo!
