Teh Squeaky Wheel
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Hopefully, we’ll get some rain today.
Unless Gov. Moonbeam messes things up.
He’s messed up everything else in CA.
G’day from not-frozen-this-morning Larryville, GN!
Hope you get some rain; also hope they get the predicted 1/2″ (or perhaps better) in L.A. and Ventura counties.
While it’s certainly true that Brown messes things up, the Assembly’s a big help in that effort, too.
News came out this week that Atlanta’s 2.7 mile, $98M streetcar (or, if you prefer, $6,874 per foot) is carrying 18% fewer riders than anticipated with service that is currently free. And the operating costs will be at least 50% higher than anticipated.
The farking thing was built largely as a sop to MLK’s family as it runs right past the King Center. (Meanwhile, various family members are squabbling over ownership of a few artifacts with rather high auction values…)
One of the proposed resolutions is to spend even moar public money to spur “development” by making the route more “walkable”…which largely seems to mean redeveloping the much-used -- and revenue-generating -- current parking lots as “green space”.
I’m just sure that will work well.
Have gotten a few sprinkles out this way, but the “heavier” rain is supposed to occur later tonite. Here’s hoping it creates a few jobs for Fatwa.
Thanks for the good thought.
So…about that Mohammedan “Ring of Peace” around the synagogue in Oslo a few days ago -- turns out at least one of the organizers -- Mohammed Ali Chishti -- is a Jooo-hating piece of shit:
In 2008, here’s what Mr. Chisti had to say:
“I hate Jews, and how they operate and I will furthermore elaborate on why I hold such beliefs… It is raised beyond doubt that Jews are in a minority in the world. A very small minority, yet it cannot be disguised that they are among the most powerful. It is NOT wrong to be powerful, but to abuse ones power, to use illegal means, to use unnecessary military power against civilians, and to behave in a arrogant and barbaric manner is in violation of international law and the human rights. It is a fact that during the attacks on the Twin Towers [World Trade Center] 1600 Jews were absent from work. OK, OK, what’s even more suspicious, is how unusually many Jews there were present in Mumbai on the day that Pakistani terrorists struck. How come?”
But, but, but, he says he’s changed since then; riiiiiiiiiiight. It’s not like the Hadiths (believed to be the literal words of Mohamhead) repeatedly single out Jews for murder or anything.
It’s also reported that the majority of folks who formed the ring were ethnic Norwegians. I’m shocked, shocked, I tell you.
to behave in a arrogant … manner is in violation of international law and the human rights.
Arrogance is against international law? Who knew?
Does this have anything to do with White privilege and Sven’s High Horse?
Personally, I think my white privilege is being held by the same people who are holding on to Fatwa’s Joooo-ish World Domination Cheques.
Hai, Paddy…and har!
Maybe it’s ’cause he’s so tall, but Sven’s “high horse” doesn’t look all that high to me:
Is there a better name for a rock band than “Sven’s High Horse”??? I don’t think so.
What about 1910 Fruitgum Company, The Lemon Pipers, The Archies or The Partridge Family?
Is he hung like a…?
As Sarah Palin would say, you betcha…
