Dutch courage in the Wildersness

Geert Wilders:

The lights are going out all over Europe. All over the continent where our culture flourished and where man created freedom, prosperity and civilization. Everywhere the foundation of the West is under attack. [cont’d BTF]

ToDaZeD Feel Good Story

Don’t Mess with Texans—or ladies of a certain age

The 76-year-old ex-Fort Worth [Former Texan Mary Thornberry] nurse spent more than a week keeping intruders out of her Cairo apartment as violent protests happened outside.

“I had a knife, a nice sharp knife so I would make jabbing motions to them and there were times ... that I would make unladylike comments,” Mary Thornberry said in a phone interview on ABC News’ “Nightline” Thursday.”

A friend of mine on the phone suggested that I boil a kettle of hot water and so, every so often, I would threaten with a kettle of hot water. ... I also had my walking cane and my rolling pin, OK ... so I tell everyone that’s my armory.”

Thornberry said the force of the crowd involved in the pro- and anti-President Hosni Mubarak demonstrations down her street seemed to burst into her building’s foyer.

“A lot of these hoodlums got to my floor and stayed the night there,” she said. “They tried to get to my apartment where I live. They made a lot noise, voices, and pounding on my door and incessant jabbing their fingers on the doorbell.”

...Thornberry, who used to live in Forth Worth, Texas, moved to Cairo in 1996. She received her graduate degree in Egyptian history.

Ginger Butler… has a fiancé in Cairo named Hisham.

She also has friends in Seattle and Olympia, and between them they started the series of events that led to Thornberry getting the help she needed.

...Mary and Hisham were connected by phone in Cairo. He went and got her out of the apartment and escorted her to safety.

..When Harvey and Bob Weinstein released Michael Moore’s political documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11” in fall 2004, it became a cultural phenomenon and grossed $119 million at the U.S. box office.

Now the director says more of that money should have made it into his pocket...

My own modest entry is an obscure selection from Shel Silverstein, the stoner poet laureate and author of so many poems you read as a child that your parents would’ve freaked if they knew what he was ACTUALLY doing with the proceeds from his book sales.

A prestigious pig cook-off at the Governor Hotel Sunday night was followed by at least two head buttings and a fist-fight outside an Old Town strip joint. Portland police were called to break up the rumble, which sent a renowned chef and the event’s organizer to jail after one had been pepper-sprayed and the other shot with a taser.

And it was all over a pig...

Guess I’m NOT Goin’ Deef

good to know...

No.  I didn’t Watch the SB.  But… My pal and I were doing Gurrly-Gurl stuff [makin’ jewelry and talking about pearls, gems, shiny objects, findings, tiny fasteners, and the like] And another pal dropped by to make oooo and aaah noises about what we were doing.  Guuurl Talk Reigned.  So The Mister, in retaliation, I suspect, turned the damthing on.  [Poor sweetie needed a breeze of testosterone.  I fear he did not get what he sought.]

So I heard a lot of “you gotta see this!” and “What the hell was that?!?” A few I even went to see.  Like the ‘toss the baby against the window’ ad.  WTF?!?, indeed.  And the ‘Budwiser turns ya ghey’ ad.  srsly??!

I was lured in to see part of the Half-time “show.” I dongeddit.  What’s up with the 80’s costumes?  Devo’d Devo is IN, now?  mmHokay… whatevah. 

I tried listening to the ..."lyrics" Again, WTF?!?  I asked everyone if they were actually singing to Obama at the SB Half-time.  No one else could understand either.  So we let it go.

But: 

will.i.am’s lyrical change-up for the first verse of “Where Is the Love?”: “In America we need to get things straight / Obama, let’s get these kids educated / Create jobs so the country stays stimulated.”

I guess “will.i.am” was the guy with the plastic do-rag.  Plastic do-rag, “singing” to Obama to “rescue” and “stimulate” the country, at the SB Half-time… rly?

WASoF.

give and take

...After agreeing to assist in a charity event for a Jewish group in Switzerland, warning signs indicated that some left wing groups were preparing a decidedly hostile welcome for Bush and the trip had to be canceled...


...Thanks to an “onslaught of negative feedback”, an event featuring Sarah Palin has been canceled.

The Sharon K Pacheco Foundation announced Saturday it was canceling its 2011 Patriots & Warriors Charity Gala out of concern for the safety of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Palin was scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the event, originally set for May 2.

According to the announcement on the group’s website:

  Due to an onslaught of personal attacks against Governor Palin and others associated with her appearance, it is with deep sadness and disappointment that, in the best interest of all, we cancel the event for safety concerns, says the Foundations Director.  

Leo Pacheco, founder of the organization, expressed concern for the safety of military members and their families.  “Military members and their families have been through a lot due to the wars.  We have a responsibility to protect their emotional safety just as well,” he said.

“And unfortunately, some have overshadowed the purpose of this event by concentrating on their personal hatred of Sarah Palin, which is truly sad.”

The event was designed to honor service members and those who have served and/or sacrificed for the country…

  The organization deeply respects Sarah Palin, and appreciates her willingness to come and honor our military.  

...


...wee-bidoo-wee-bidoo-wee-bidoo…
( 1.23.2011 )

… Washington University in St. Louis is planning a “Student Sexual Responsibility Week” next month.  They decided to invite Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol to speak about abstinence at the event.  Bristol is the Teen Abstinence Ambassador for The Candie’s Foundation, a group dedicated to preventing teen pregnancy.  She’s also become a popular media figure in her own right, having appeared on one of television’s most popular shows, Dancing With The Stars.

Campus leftists immediately tugged on their jackboots and flew into a towering pillar of rage.  Today they were able to intimidate the university and Palin into calling off her appearance...

...wee-bidoo-wee-bidoo-wee-bidoo…
( 3.22.2010 )

Right-wing antagonist Ann Coulter cancelled a University of Ottawa address last night after organizers decided it wasn’t safe to speak.
The move followed boisterous demonstrations outside that sponsors of the appearance feared could turn violent.
“There was a risk there could be physical violence,” said Canadian conservative activist Ezra Levant, who was scheduled to introduce Ms. Coulter...

Rummy Quotes

Aside from my favorite, which I use regularly:

“There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.”

MOTUS showed me a new one, which I find describes so many things…

“If I know the answer I’ll tell you the answer, and if I don’t, I’ll just respond, cleverly.”

Italian women fed up with their prime minister’s womanizing and alleged involvement in a prostitution ring plan to demonstrate Sunday at Berlusconi’s mansion outside Milan. ...Sunday’s protest is one of several planned for this weekend, as Italians are calling for their prime minister’s resignation amid allegations that he paid women for sex at “bunga bunga” parties where they performed stripteases and pole dances.

[They will toss their panties over the wall of his mansion.]

No mention of style or ...freshness.

A demonstration in Milan on Saturday is expected to be attended by Umberto Eco, the author of The Name of the Rose, and Paul Ginsborg, a British historian who teaches at Florence University.

Bonus Canadian Snark of Teh Day

America’s Hat pulled over Teh iWon’s eyes

PRIME MINISTER HARPER:  You asked me about the question of energy, and, yes, we did discuss the matter you raised.  And let me just say this in that context.  I think it is clear to anyone who understands this issue that the need of the United States for fossil fuels far in excess of its ability to produce such energy will be the reality for some time to come.  And the choice that the United States faces in all of these matters is whether to increase its capacity, to accept such energy from the most secure, most stable and friendliest location it can possibly get that energy, which is Canada, or from other places that are not as secure, stable or friendly to the interests and values of the United States.

WTF?!?

...erm, wtf?!?

[Haaretz—Published 11:26 04.06.09]: U.S. President Barack Obama met with members of Egypt’s Islamist opposition movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, [in Washington two months ago], according to a report in Thursday editions of the Egyptian daily newspaper Almasry Alyoum.

...According to the report, the members [who reside in the U.S. and Europe] requested that news of the meeting not be publicized. They expressed to Obama their support for democracy and the war on terror.

The newspaper also reported that the members communicated to Obama their position that the Muslim Brotherhood would abide by all agreements Egypt has signed with foreign countries.

Hm… I missed that at the time [just before “Teh Cairo Speech"]

The only other reference I can come up with for this is WND.  Yeah.  I know. [I am hampered from much searching by having to use an ancient ‘back-up’ puter which I could liken to marking up clay tablets, stuffing ‘em in bottles which I toss in the sea.  Also the utter derth of responsible journalism.]

And what’s this bit in Teh iWon’s speech today about “Universal Values”??!

...In recent days, we’ve seen violence and harassment erupt on the streets of Egypt that violates human rights, universal values and international norms. So we are sending a strong and unequivocal message:  Attacks on reporters are unacceptable.  Attacks on human rights activists are unacceptable.  Attacks on peaceful protesters are unacceptable.

The Egyptian government has a responsibility to protect the rights of its people. Those demonstrating also have a responsibility to do so peacefully.  But everybody should recognize a simple truth:  The issues at stake in Egypt will not be resolved through violence or suppression. ...

I thought we were supposed to “celebrate diverrrrsity”?  The Egyptian rulers’ tendency to mow down Teh Alexandrian Mob has existed for centuries; whaaa? no celebration of cultural differences?

AND NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS

Via Miss Marple, in the AoS thread that inspired my last post:

Muslims must embrace our British values, David Cameron says

 British Muslims must subscribe to mainstream values of freedom and equality, David Cameron will say as he declares that the doctrine of multiculturalism has “failed” and will be abandoned.  

OH SNAP

  Entering the debate on national identity and religious tolerance, the Prime Minister will declare an end to “passive tolerance” of divided communities, and say that members of all faiths must integrate into wider society and accept core values.

To be British is to believe in freedom of speech and religion, democracy and equal rights regardless of race, sex or sexuality, he will say. Proclaiming a doctrine of “muscular liberalism”, he will say that everyone, from ministers to ordinary voters, should actively confront those who hold extremist views.

He will also warn that groups that fail to promote British values will no longer receive public money or be able to engage with the state.  

Oh, I like this.  Please let this be true.  PLEASE LET THIS BE AN EXAMPLE.

WikiLeaks cables: US agrees to tell Russia Britain’s nuclear secrets

 The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.
[...]
A series of classified messages sent to Washington by US negotiators show how information on Britain’s nuclear capability was crucial to securing Russia’s support for the “New START” deal.

Although the treaty was not supposed to have any impact on Britain, the leaked cables show that Russia used the talks to demand more information about the UK’s Trident missiles, which are manufactured and maintained in the US.  

I dunno.  I got nothin’.  Nothing but rage, and shame, a burning desire to see this sonofabitch out of office, and an increasing disinterest in the manner of his exit.

todaze Lympians are angry mobs of fascist racist bigots

Lawmakers in Washington state – one of two states in the country that still let illegal immigrants obtain driver’s licenses – are moving forward with bills that would ask for proof of legal residency.

About half a dozen bills have been introduced in the current session to attempt changes to driver’s license requirements. Lawmakers held a hearing on one of the bills Thursday – the first time that has happened in years.

The unprecedented traction has sparked an immigration debate in Olympia – hitting a high point Thursday when a committee hearing was adjourned early after protesters began yelling that “brown” people were being targeted...
