July 26th, 2013: Let’s Go Crazy

By on Jul 26, 2013 in Politics | 7 comments

I’ve been trying to talk sanity for the last few days. People don’t want to hear it. You’re either pro-military or pro-terrorism, you’re either an ikhwan or a lover of Egypt (and when they say Egypt they mean the military, and when they mean the military they forget all the betrayals) – we open the doors of one cage, and they run scurrying to the next cage. I haven’t turned on the TV today, and I slept most of it away, I don’t want to see the pictures. I don’t want to see the numbers of people who came out today, don’t want to understand just how many people are willing to see a Maspero all over again, but this time, with popular cheering and applause. I know that there ARE terrorists out there, I am not afraid of the word, and I define it simply as those who would threaten or murder civilians for political gain. It’s not a...

Egypt: Links for the Perplexed

By on Jul 11, 2013 in Politics | 0 comments

Here are some completely biased articles, written by what must be a whole gaggle of Coptic Mubarak-Era Nazi’s, that attempt to explain and justify the incredibly complicated situation in Egypt, otherwise known to the layman as Egypt’s Military Coup. Enjoy. Murder on the Democracy Express – By Clifford D. May, President of, of all things, The Foundation for Defense of Democracies. In which he describes President Morsi as, essentially, democracidal. Here is a post written by some guy called Ian, Ian is a friend – and he had this to write: https://www.facebook.com/notes/omar-kamel/post-by-a-friend/10151738089594905 It’s an interesting post, and he makes a few good points, certainly, but, of course, he discredits himself absolutely by daring to utter what some of us only refer to as the ‘f’ bomb. Also, he is wrong about everything, I don’t...

Testimony on Army / Brotherhood Clashes

By on Jul 9, 2013 in Politics | 6 comments

I’ve just come off the phone, after talking at length with a friend I trust who lives, more or less literally, in the middle of the battle zone, and has been witness to events. I need to write more about this, but I can’t right now. The thrust of it is that the so-called ‘Muslim’ Brotherhood there has been completely terrorizing and destroying the neighborhood, they’ve been destroying shops and ransacking them for food and drink, they’ve been forcing people away from the area, or into their homes, they’ve been forcing themselves into buildings, where they’ve taken over the roofs of at least two buildings there, and using them to fire both gas grenades and bullets at the soldiers during the battles. She saw a one of them get shot while he was standing along, hands raised in the middle of a lull, during which, she insists, the army was not...

Bonfire of the Vanities

Shenanigans. We are witnessing shenanigans, tomfoolery, and much clownish ness. Also, a good deal of buffoonery, poppycock, and a wide whisk of whimsical witlessness all marked as balderdash. Getting the picture? A fantastically bad movie was made. It may have been made so badly for nefarious purposes, or possibly by a creator who really is that bad, that stupid, and that impervious to both taste and reason. Whichever. And yes, Muslims are nuts – but so is everybody else on this planet who chooses to maintain unprovable beliefs. You are all…technically…insane. I mean it; ask a Vulcan. He’ll fill you in. Is it stupid to draw attention to a movie that you think is bad or insulting? No, of course not – on principle it is the only wise choice of action. Is it useful to do so? No. Not at all. The Sex Pistols were made when their song ‘God Save The...
