An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 20 November 2012
The Jewish Press has an update this morning, with a bit of a time line as what has been going on in Israel.
The second item on the timeline…well, I just snorted and chuckled. Not because I find it all that funny, but at the absurdity!
7:50 PM Prime Minister Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Liberman and Defense Minister Barak discussing terms of the cease-fire with Hamas at 9 PM tonight.
The main points are:
1) a 15 year Hudna (in case ya didn’t know….truce, calm OB)
2) Hamas will not smuggle or import any weapons
3) Hamas will not attack Israel, or Israeli soldiers along the border
4) Israel reserves the right to attack Gaza if there is an imminent threat
5) President Morsi will be personally responsible, and sign as 3rd party guarantor.
Seriously? SERIOUSLY? Like those animals would honor any ONE of the things on this list? THEY started it, and they wanna play all nice, and push Israel into signing a truce? I KNOW Bibi has GOT to be smarter than that! Morsi is freakin’ Muslim Brotherhood! Hamas a a MB wing!
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times. It is characterised by its deep understanding, accurate comprehension and its complete embrace of all Islamic concepts of all aspects of life, culture, creed, politics, economics, education, society, justice and judgement, the spreading of Islam, education, art, information, science of the occult and conversion to Islam.
I dunno….does that sound like a rational people? How ’bout this:
“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.”
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
These pigs won’t honor any truce. They never have. They never will. Best to wipe out the pit of vipers before it’s too late!
I think it’s a pretty well known fact around here… I have NO use for unions! NONE! For a while, it was just public sector unions that royally chapped my hide. They shouldn’t exist in the first place. The intent of a public servant is to serve the people, NOT the other way around. I’m now at the point where even private sector unions are on my ‘list’.
Between the idiotic, and mostly USELESS, government regulations, and the union gimme gimme gimme mentality, is it any wonder that we’ve pretty much lost so much business to foreign countries? Hell, I wouldn’t even be stupid enough to start a business in this country the way things stand right now. If a well established business, Hostess for instance, is being pushed to the brink by unreasonable demands, what chance does a freshly starting out business have to succeed?
You dipwads want to get the public on your side? You’re failing….MISERABLY! There is no longer a need for any union in this country, and they should go the way of the dodo!
Can Hostess Save the Twinkies from the Union?
If unions are trying to be more popular with the American people, they’re doing it wrong.
Americans have gone crazy over the possible loss of Twinkies, Ho Ho’s, Ding Dongs, and Hostess CupCakes after the company said it was shutting down because its bakers’ union opted to walk off the job for a strike. People are already asking exorbitant prices on eBay for boxes of the packaged treats.
Hostess and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM) have agreed to enter mediation with a bankruptcy judge, who said there are “serious questions as to the logic behind the decision to strike.” More than 18,000 jobs are at stake.
Stop in the name of the TSA
by Rep. Marsha Blackburn
For as long as I can remember the federal government has lectured American business owners on the importance of being honest in their advertising practices and has worked aggressively to regulate them into compliance. They have cracked down on small businesses that have gotten themselves into trouble with deceptive pricing, substantiating claims, bait-and-switch advertising and misleading language. But what happens when a federal agency perpetuates a misleading and unsubstantiated claim that can be deceiving to the American public?
If you want to see a prominent example of a federal agency that completely blunders truth in advertising on a daily basis, look no further than the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Since 2005, after being administratively reclassified without Congressional approval, our nation’s airport screeners have gone by the misleading title of Transportation Security Officers (TSOs). This title falls short of any basic standard for truth in advertising by the mere fact that TSOs do not have any federal law enforcement training.
