Beaver Friday and news you can't use

Maybe our furry friend here can straighten out the economy and bring the banksters to jail.

Pakistan jails the doctor who ratted out Bin Ladin. There's a moral ethical and legal problem. Morally it was right. Ethically it was right, but legally not so much. The CIA was after all operating in a foreign country as spies. Unless they had the sponsorship of the government then they were operating illegally. So now our congress passes a bill to cut funding to Pakistan. No biggy since they were already doing back up in aid to the tune of a couple of hundred million. And now since Pakistan is not to happy about our drone strikes they're charging NATO 1 million a day to use their roads for shipments supplying our military in Afghanistan. I'd bet anything those tolls go up by a million in short order.

Syria would need 11.5 billion to cover it's operating expenses once Assad leaves (if he does). It appears that Syria is going the way of the "P.I.I.G.S." nations and will require a euro type bail out. Oh we'll have to see how this one plays out. You think Russia, Iran and Lebanon would come to the country's aid once Assad is gone?

Space X capsule getting ready to reach the space station Excuse me but haven't the Russians been doing this for years? They've sent unmanned cargo ships to the station and almost nobody notices. Have we fallen that far behind the Russians?

Trump wants to start a "super pac". Just what we need more juice to dump into the overflowing political punch bowl. Any wagers on when the poop storm of political ads will hit the TV screen? Two choices there. Either pull the plug on the TV or only view the movie channels. Anything else is sure to drive you to your nearest mental health facility.

Lastly we have Mint Raw Money touting that Obama is not for capitalism Ah, let's see the definition of Bane. You remember the company he is hyping as his claim to fame. Can't run on his record as governor that's for sure.

bane   [beyn]
1.a person or thing that ruins or spoils: Gambling was the bane of his existence.
2.a deadly poison (often used in combination, as in the names of poisonous plants): wolfsbane; henbane.
3.death; destruction; ruin.
4.Obsolete . that which causes death or destroys life: entrapped and drowned beneath the watery bane.

Yep that about sums up what Raw Money would do to this country.

And then we have the bank fails brought to you by the former president that "gift" that keeps on giving... later.

Funny Billy I hadn't read your last comment when I wrote this one.

You just keep your tongue out of those groves now. :-)

The good news is that I haven't killed my tomato plant yet.

A little wolfsbane on your corn flakes puts hair on your chest.

I thought Billy typed "I haven't killed with my tomato plant yet." Now there's a home business that can only grow in the coming decades.

BBC said...

More good news, global warming means it's going to get warmer here.


Demeur said...

Killer tomatoes is it? Those prepositions can be tricky at times. No a little garlic on the flakes keeps the vampires away and my chest is hairy enough .

By convicting the doctor who fingered bin Laden as a spy, traitor or anything like that, Pakistan admitted al Qaida is part of Pakistan's government, or at least a vital interest of Pakistan's.

Suspicions confirmed.
