ARABS & MUSLIMS
Democratic Presidents do seem to have a genius for turning neutral Arab
dictator states into Anti US non secular states.
Of course it is probably for the good in the long run. I mean,
does anyone really want to support dictator states? Perhaps the
anti US reaction in the Arab world is a response to past US support of
Then again. From the evidence available I have a few concerns
about fundamental Muslimism.
Moses was a refugee. Jesus was a hippy. Mahommed was a
And the charges made in "innocence
Muslims" is based in probable
fact. At least it does not directly contradict the scholarly work
That factual basis probably explains the upset of
the Muslim world.
But it certainly does not excuse the murderous violence of the mobs in
Cairo and Afghanistan and various other Muslim nations.
Jesus is slandered frequently. The Muslims deny he is the Son of
God. Jews are slandered on a daily basis. What is special
about Muslims that they think that "disrespect" is a capital
crime? Where I grew up, respect was earned.
Or do Muslims seek
to earn respect on the point of a sword? I suppose that is how
the followers of a warlord prophet would behave.
QE3 and DRAGHI
Buying mortgages and bonds rewards the unlucky gamblers, and penalizes
the poorest citizens.
Instead of $40 billion/month buying mortgages, Bernanke should pay each
US citizen (including children) equal shares of that same amount.
$40 billion shared by 300 million people is about $140/month per
person. Same for Draghi.
It would probably be a more effective way of curing the disinflation
Some time last week at a private function, Allan Jones suggested that
Labour Party PM Julia's father probably died of shame at having a
daughter who told so many lies. OK, as a father of daughters I
would not have found that remotely funny. But it was
an ex-tempore speech at a Liberal function, and permissible in front of
that audience. But some genius journalist had a recorder going,
and is now making a name for himself with a shock-horror exposure.
Well good for him. I put that effort on a par with the recent
photographing our future Queen's naked breasts. No blame to Allan
though, He did not intend that such hurtful statements should
reach Julia's ears, and has apologised.
The ABC and Labour Party has played it up to the level of vomit.
Perhaps we could split the ABC into a right wing and a left wing?
Or is that SBS?
