The Price of Human Life – in Israeli Terms

Currently it’s at about 374 Palestinian lives for every 4 Israeli lives.  I guess to some that sounds fair!  I don’t know, though.  It sounds a little iffy to me.  I wonder who decides?  Hmmm!

Maybe a conversation, somewhere in Jerusalem, went something like this (with all due apologies to The Untouchables):

Ehud Barak: You said you wanted to get Hamas. Do you really wanna get them? You see what I’m saying is, what are you prepared to do?
Shimon Peres: Anything within the (cough) law.
Barak: And *then* what are you prepared to do? If you open the can on these worms (you know – MUCH less than humans) you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they’re not gonna give up the fight, until one of you is dead.
Peres: I want to get Hamas! I don’t know how to do it.
Barak: You wanna know how to get Hamas? They pull a stick, you pull a gun. They throw some rocks, you fire grenade launchers.  They fire some rockets, that rarely hit the broadside of a barn, you send in air strikes with F-15l Ra’ams and F-16l Sufas, firing Raphael Python 5 missiles, and of course, your Apache Longbow attack helicopters armed with AGM-114 Hellfire and Hydra 70 rockets.  He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send ninety-some of his to the morgue. *That’s* the *Israeli* way! And that’s how you get Hamas. Now do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that? I’m offering you a deal. Do you want this deal?
Peres: I have sworn to take down this organization with all legal (and otherwise) powers at my disposal and I will do so.
Barak: Well, HaShem hates a coward.
[jabs Peres with his hand, and Peres shakes it]
Barak: Do you know what a bloodbath is, Mr. Peres?
Peres: Yes.
Barak: Good, ’cause you just started one.

Sounds feasible to me. —   YUR

PS.  I’d go into detail on my personal views on Zionism, but no doubt someone would jump to that popular (via indoctrination) assumption that I must be some kind of Anti-Semite.  Because that’s how narrow minds work.

The New 3 “R”s?

Rush, Republican and Racism?

Wow, Rush!  “Barack The Magic Negro”???  All in good fun???  Boy oh boy, Big Fat Idiot doesn’t even begin to cover it, does it, buddy!  Was it the Vicadin that told you it was alright to play that on the air?  Or, was it the methane-madness, from permanently having your head up your ass?

When is the RNC going to realize what a liability this guy is to the image of the Republican party?  He just reinforces the old stereotype of Republicans being the party of racists, the party of intolerance.  Don’t you think it’s time they put him out to pasture?  Maybe the punishment could be more severe.  (Hey!  They shoot horses, don’t they?)

Sure, Rush didn’t write it or record it.  (That distinction belongs to some clown named Paul Shanklin)  But, he’s the great humanitarian who deemed it worthy of the national airwaves.  What a hoot, right Rush?  It’s all just a “political parody”, right?  What a maroon!  What a nincom . . . poop!

Of course, the RNC will probably do nothing about it.  At least not Rush-wise.  They’ll just slap the wrist of some guy named Chip Saltsman(?).  (Ooh, you’re a baa-ad boy, Chip!)  Rush is too valuable a tool for the RNC, in their program of divisiveness.  Divisiveness is the best way to keep the people in their place.  Ignorant, cowed, and down . . . and nearly out.

What a pleasant way to exit 2008.  NOT!  Goddammit!!!
