Lots of crazy stuff this week. Let’s start with the stupid this week.
Some idiot from Jordan decided that the classic Moorish architecture of the Alhambra in Spain was missing that certain something, his name carved into the stone work. So the fool decided to do this using an amazing writing tool, a coin. More at the link.
Now we will move to the downright dangerous and arrogant. Striking longshoremen in Washington state stormed a port in Longview (a union port), taking hostages and destroying equipment and rail cars. Their reason, these jobs are ours. No recognition at all that the owners have the right to run their business however they wish, including hiring workers from OTHER unions to perform the work. I love this, no arrests have been made, so taking hostages is cool if you are doing it on union time. More at the link’
Speaking of arrogant, did you catch Obama’s speech. Pass this bill right away, even though there was no bill in existence. The best response to the speech was by Republican presidential primary candidate, Herman Cain. I won’t ruin the surprise, read it on your own, if you have 5 seconds that is.
And the final note for the week, an absolutely unbelievable post by New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman. This ASSHOLE published the attached commentary on the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 terror attacks. I, for one will never forget this callous abomination. I only wish I had a subscription to the NYT so I could cancel it.
That’s it for this week. I feel better now.
