2. Tripoli was conquered by Islamists.

3. ISIS captured the key military airport in Syria by using children-suicide bombers.

4. Russian tanks invaded Ukraine by crossing border in two separate locations.

5. Israel was subjected to 130 Jihadi missiles and whole areas of the country had to be evacuated.

6. ISIS successfully implemented several waves of terrorists attacks in Baghdad and two other Iraqi cities.

OK this last link is a spoof, but it feels more related to reality than the news coming out of the official White House.

Wormtongue's nothing much more than a party boy. I think I'm glad. He's too stupid to do anything right.

Dick Stanley said...

Good one! Only a pity it has to be repeated so often, the obvious, I mean. And that the whataboutery and the yesbuttery goes on and on.

Dick Stanley said...

If it has a fault, it's that it's too long and has a few dubious points. But in the main it's a good one! I swiped it. Thanks.

BHCh said...

Sorry Dick, but the fact Obama is an asshole has nothing to do with melanin and you should keep his colour scheme out of discussion.

Dick Stanley said...

It's a description, a distinguishing feature, as it were. Racism, as usual, is in the eye of the beholder.

BHCh said...

When someone is talking about Alan Greenspan's "hooked nose", you know this has nothing to do with his interest rest policies. Please leave Obama's ears or pigmentation out of this.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Surely it does. The way of the world, ain't it.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

You are welcome. You are right, it is a bit long, but choke full of useful info.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Pigmentation - that I can understand, but ears? I mean, I always talked freely about a certain British prince and his princely-sized ears, is it racist now?

David Sigeti said...

Dick, it looks like I got to up-vote your comment twice, once as a guest and once as myself. Now that I have experienced it, I think that giving a responsible, intelligent, and judicious person like me extra votes is an excellent idea and should be more widely practiced. :-)

Dick Stanley said...

See, I never noticed Greenspan's nose. Now how did I miss that? Probably 'cause I don't think that way. But Obama's ears? They are definitely funny looking. What really gripes me is when King Scold is praised, he's "our first black president." Whoop-de-do. When he's criticized, if the color is dropped in, it's racist. Never could play that game.

Dick Stanley said...

Anything's racist in the PC game, depending on the speaker's pigmentation. Like only blacks are allowed to use the N-word. Isn't that special? I didn't know making fun of brown ears was racist. What do you bet making fun of white ears is not?

Dick Stanley said...

I can't imagine what's the good of up or down votes, but if it turns you on...

Here's a pointed quote I saw on PJMedia:

The liberal media- the only business where the customer is always wrong.
-Rush Limbaugh

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Yeah. Rappers lately are getting very frisky, what with the British ISIS head-cutter.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Rush does have his moments. Then he has other moments ;-)

fred lapides said...

ho ho...make fun of Ob amd vacation time etc but as a veteran (twice) I saw him on tv giving speech to Vets aboutwhat he will do to fix the mess at V.Al. hospitals..and the money he will make sure gets to fix things...he was NO on vacation nor on a ranch in Texas like bush guy.

fred lapides said...

does that mean that all who rap and are from England decapitater? that is a captivating notion sort of like give or getting Head

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Probably not yet. But who knows what the future will bring? We need more statistics. Since rappers have a short life expectancy in general, we may never get enough data...

fred lapides said...

no it is NOT. we know of the brown skin...it is your own hangup...move on and all the blah blahj after your remark digs the hole even deeper

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Me too.

Dick Stanley said...

Speeches, he's all about speeches. He hasn't fixed any messes yet, Fred. He only makes them.


OT: Looks like Bibi surrendered to Hamas, guys, all his rhetoric down the tubes, maybe along with his career. Every Israeli news outlet that runs in English, including Haaretz, agree that this truce is not progress. What do you think?

Dick Stanley said...

Heh, exactly. ;-) I shall pass on to Mr. B.

BHCh said...

Except that Obama did go on vacation among all the mess - partly of his own creation. The only spoof about this post is the White House countdown to next vacation. And even that is going on, just not in public.

I was assuming that it was like a Facebook "like", which I take as approval that does not necessarily require a response, which a comment often does, or seems to.
