News you can't use and could probably care less about

We have the lurid affair of General Petraeus. Like anybody really cares. But seeing as how old McCain probably isn't getting any I'm sure he wants all the details. Here's a guy who graduated at the bottom of his class and is due to get the boot off his senate arms committee. So this is the last hurray for him. Maybe they should put him in the home with Abe Simpson.

Credit Suisse and JP Morgan Chase get a slap on the wrist while millions lost their homes and just about everything else all while the banks are still make billions in profits. Here's an idea. Burn the banksters houses down and let them live in a cardboard box. And now we know why Bonnie and Clyde were looked on as heros.

Palestine verses Israel. Sitting there minding their own business when Israel takes out some of their leaders. Last I checked that is an act of war. And now Israel is blaming the Palestinians. Give me a break. The bully beats you up then blames you and wants to round up his posse to do it again. This is not to mention all the land they stole over the last 40 years.

Greece is set for another general strike on Nov 22. This would coincide with the Walmart walkout at 1000 stores here in the U.S. I'd say greed has gone too far with these guys. Top wages for an average Walmart worker? About $22,000 a year. Try raising a family on that. Greece on the other hand just had another round of tax hikes and pension cuts after having their taxes raised 29% just a few months ago. Is it true? Can you squeeze blood out of a turnip?

Syria continues to be Syria. The background in all that is so complicated it would take a rocket scientist to explain it. Because it involves Suunis, Kurds, Shiites, Alwates, Iranian fighters, Salafists, and backers from Russia, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iran, the U.S. and who knows who else. I'd bet the only ones making any profit from this are the arms dealers and the undertakers.

Looks like the spammers are getting through.
When you have time, do some research on Bahrain. same shit as Syria but this time it is the USA supporting their version of Assad. So of course you may not hear much about it.

We need to send thousands of ground troops into Syria ASAP. Don't worry, it'll be a cakewalk. Grateful Syrians will greet our soldiers as liberators and shower them with candy and ice cream.

I like nuts.

I'll check that out Fodder.

Yeah Tom maybe we can get a contract with the Chinese to do that but first we'll borrow the money from them to do it.

Billy you are nuts.
