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...

What’s Going on in Egypt?

By on Dec 14, 2011 in Politics | 0 comments

The army, as expected, are being motherfuckers. Some of us have been telling people that the army leadership is no good since March, but it took a while for the rest of the people to catch up to that, since they initially trusted the army. As their awareness increased, things escalated, and in November, the army attacked a small group of injured protesters who were sitting-in in Tahrir, their attack prompted everyone to go support them, leading to a 5 day long battle between us and the security forces. We lost tens of people, and about a couple of thousand got injured, around a hundred or so were shot in the eye. The police officers were clearly targeting eyes. One of our guys (Dr. Ahmed Harara) who had lost an eye on Jan28 lost another on Nov19. One eye lost to Mubarak, and another to the army generals. We’re also fairly certain that they’ve used gasses over than...
