I live in AZ after all.

You know, I’m beginning to wonder if David Bowie was gay.

NYS Boycott up to 117.  Yay!

A drudgetaposition

Kataeb calls for making Lebanon-Syria border “military zone

On The Border of War.

A little more jihadi news.

There really is nobody to root for in Yemen, al Quaeda in Yemen,  allegedly, we don’t know for sure, that’s what the murderous, Yemeni dictatorship calls anybody they don’t like) blew up a truck bomb.

But check this quote

A suicide car bomb driven by a suspected Al-Qaeda militant on Monday rammed into a building in south Yemen used by pro-government militiamen

So pretty much jihadi v jihadi.

Crush at Blackfive (link added) writes about China allegedly getting all frisky in the South China Sea says the quote that Americans used to understand as we learned it the hard way (WWII)

But whether or not China starts World War III, let’s at least realize that toothless, corrupt treaties are no replacement for naval superiority.

Yup. Too bad we have to keep relearning hard-earned lessons.

Unfortunately, we talk loudly and keep our big sticks in Norfolk. Right now we have 4 nukular aircraft carriers in Norfolk. (Plus the Enterprise that’s being retired).

Some interesting news.

Noting that Azerbaijan currently meets 40% of Israel’s demands on energy resources, the ambassador underscored the importance of high-level official visits in terms of further deepening the existing relations.

No seriously, I would have figured that being an eastern European country, they’d be all about Teh Jew Hating. You learn something new every day.

To steal a bit, News of the Tautological

I doubt that there will be any vigorous US policy in the South Caucasus in the near future.

Well duh, he only has vigorous policies designed to fuck with me.

In more Obama hilarity,

Obama is done trying to work with Republicans in 2013 and 2014. He is abandoning any real effort for bipartisan immigration, gun, or energy reform.

Bwahahahahahahhahahahaha. Cuz I Won has worked so well with everybody up to now. I mean, it’s not as if the Dems rammed a reordering of 1/6th of our economy using some stupid Senate trick.

I had a go-round with someone here about “needing” a gun where I said that I refuse to explain why I need anything. I understand I don’t use the right words, I know them, I just don’t like using them.

Steven den Beste, at Ace’s, explains it better than I do.

I can’t have anything unless I can prove I need it? Since when? So now is it the case that everything which isn’t provably necessary is instead forbidden?

Bingo, bango, bongo.

One of the things that cracks me up is two people looking at the same thing, saying the same thing yet meaning exactly the opposite. Robert Reich talking about Tea Party types.

Imagine a plot to undermine the government of the United States, to destroy much of its capacity to do the public’s business, and to sow distrust among the population.

Well yeah, that’s the whole fucking point, but he says it like it’s a bad thing.

For the last 30 years or a little longer NYS has been discussing making gambling legal in some upstate counties.

They were shooting for, I think, Ulster County.

There was a Friar who allegedly said there was Tuck ed an alleged Inn allegedly in alleged Ulster County that, allegedly according to alleged rumors I’ve heard from alleged people who allegedly saw it first hand (“you’ll see stuff, remember, you didn’t see nothingallegedly), was allegedly mob-owned and allegedly already had the alleged tables and alleged rooms for alleged gambling and were allegedly in use but the pols just kept allegedly not making it legal.

Allegedly. This all stopped happening a long time ago, shortly after the Catskill Game Farm closed. Allegedly.

I always figured alleged mobsters in alleged Atlantic City or maybe certain alleged Indian tribes allegedly out-bribed the alleged mobsters who were allegedly trying to get gambling in Ulster County. That’s usually the way to bet  in NYS politics. Allegedly.

So the owner of Aqeduct, which apparently isn’t just a horse track but has some gambling that’s not full blown casino stuff, finally figured that the outside mobsters bribes were too large is going to spend his money building a casino in Vegas.

The operator of the Aqueduct gambling parlor is going to roll the dice in Vegas.

Not content with waiting for New York State to legalize Vegas-style casinos, Malaysian-based Genting announced today its building a multi-billion dollar, full-fledged casino resort complex on the Vegas strip.

Up the alleged bribes alleged dude.

Eh, that’s enough, allegedly, for today.

    Dont worry China wont pull the trigger till it can get a US task force in its sights. the one thing they want above all else is to be recognized as a World Super power, and the one way to do that is to sink a few US ships before playing the Diplomacy with the US debt they own as a Stick. to get the US to cool down and back off. Its not a coincidence that the two countries they are being aggressive towards are both US allie’s with a mutual defense treaties, and I’m betting Obama and his Wunderkind dismiss any threat from China.

    At this point the US is not trusted to uphold any treaty or promises its made over the years and that is encouraging state to state aggression with out fear of US intervention. The longer the US ignores its friends and its responsibility’s mandated by treaty and high level promise, the worse the world scene will become.

    China is a big topic so there are several thought trains here.

    China is definitely a problem and more so now than in the past due to their ownership of so many of our politicians. Debt ownership is just piling it on.

    I am also not convinced that China is unhappy with NK, if you get right down to it. They have to be recognized by other superpowers as long as they have the appearance of keeping them in check. Increased US, SK, and Japanese presence in the area only help China in the PR effort going along with their military buildup.

      The Norks make China happy, they mess with the rest of the world. Commies always like that.

      The thing with China is that with a competent POTUS, or even one that liked America, China would have to worry more about us than the opposite.

      If they want to mess with us vis a vis debt, I’d say we tell them to go screw. They don’t actually have all that much of our debt.
      They can’t afford to lend anybody a $trillion/year, that’s real money they can’t fudge.

    • jokelly65 says:

      of course China is happy with NK, they serve as a destabilizing influence in the area and a flash point that could lend china a credible way to enter limited conflict with the US while being able to trumpet how they were only coming to the defense of their ally NK gaining the Political moral high ground against the US and SK.
