Hounds tree skunk; big stink ensues

Life ain't as easy as it might seem here at Falling Downs.

By the way, I think I got the tax situation cleared up, so I think that, at least for the time being, we're off the "Tax Sales" list at the county office....

But sunoffabitch, if it ain't one thing, it's another...

Believe me, it's easy enough to rip forth scathing ripostes to anything that might spew from the likes of Big Steve or Little John or Barry O or Bibi...

But then the hounds tree a skunk, get a good squirt, and all of a sudden you're dealing with problems of an entirely different magnitude.

Obviously, Boomsie and Lucifer are not gonna be lounging on the couch cushions for a few days after that adventure!

Bibi can go apeshit and slaughter hundreds of civilians in Gaza, and that doesn't impact my personal life nearly as much as the hounds treeing a skunk.

It's a messed up world.

Facebook CEO Zuckerberg's net worth rockets by 15 billions thanks to selling your secrets to the NSA

That's a damned good business model Zucky's got going on.

Create Facebook addicts who are more than happy to spill their innermost secrets all over the world wide web.

Then sell them out to the NSA.

"Sell" being the operative word here.

Then again, if people are stupid enough to embrace this "new" model of state surveillance, ie let the private sector do the dirty work and then we'll pay them for it, they kinda get what they deserve.

New US bumboy in Kabul allows US troops to stay after they leave

There's an Orwellian mind-fuck for ya...

This Ashraf Ghani chappie is obviously our cup of tea; check out his comments when his new government signed an agreement that will allow US troops to stay after they technically leave; "Today Afghanistan has regained its sovereignty as a power."

Huh?

You regain your sovereign power by signing a deal that allows the occupiers to stay in your country, totally immune from your country's legal system?.. oh my, there's an Oxfordshire village cemetery got a spinning corpse with a great big boner right now...

Meanwhile Barry O sees this as an "historic day," as well he might.

In fact, he's looking forward to cementing "an enduring partnership that strengthens Afghan sovereignty, stability, unity, and prosperity."

Just like it has for the past 13 years...

EBOLA IN AMERICA!!! (Uncle Sam says sign up for Obamacare NOW!)

Well you sure have some scary headlines across America today, eh?

First US Ebola case confirmed...

Oh, that's almost enough to take your eye off America's latest war in the Middle East, is it not?

Coincidence?

Frankly, it was only a matter of time. What with the thousands of assorted do-gooders and missionary types traipsing around the Dark Continent, spreading good cheer and salvation, it was only a matter of time. And sending 3,000 US troops to Ebola Central, Liberia, pretty much ensured a done deal sooner or later.

So if you've been hedging your bets on taking the Obamacare plunge, it's time to poop or get off the pot. That dude in Dallas is in all kinds of really pricey "isolation," don't ya know; how would you like to have that coming out of your pocket?

So play it safe, America; if you have not already done so, sign up for Obamacare now!

Harper gang takes sleazy politicking to outer space

Outer space.

Canada can't even field research ships to her own Arctic waters without leasing Russian ships, but they have the gall to deny visas to top-drawer delegates from Russia and China who were scheduled to attend a conference on space exploration?

How is such a screw-up even possible?

Come on, Big Steve, you look more than ridiculous on this one.

You couldn't find the Franklin Expedition without Russia's help...

But you're gonna explore outer space without them?

Let's get serious!

Netanyahu gives Nazi salute at UN


 

Well here's a "Sieg heil" right back at ya, Mr. Netanyahu!

Mr. Netanyahu has done more than anyone else to transform the State of Israel, aka the Holy Land, into the quintessential fascist state.

Think about it...

Every citizen (well, except those religious shirkers and those Arab citizens who we all know aren't really "citizen" citizens because, well, you know...) has to do their time in the IDF.

Then, after you do your time in the IDF, the nature of your service will determine your "life chances."

After that, you can parlay that IDF service into a decent post in a military tech start-up, or even an non-military tech start-up, because nothing opens doors in the Israeli job market like having the word "Captain" or "Major" in front of your name.

Never mind the Generals!

They are each and every one bound for greatness!

No matter how useless and retarded they actually were!

Hard times for the Putin-haters

Here's a headline steeped in irony; Rosneft and Exxon discover Arctic oil.

And it looks to be what used to be called a "gusher," although what that means in this era of oil surpluses is uncertain.

But it sure is diplomatic of Rosneft boss Igor Sechin, personally targeted by the anti-Russian sanctions that have been all the fad in the Nations of Virtue these last six months, to thank by name his American partners who made this discovery possible: Exxon Mobil, Bakerhughes, Schlumberger, Haliburton, Trendsetter, and FMC.

Now, do you think that this discovery may have something to do with how quiet things have been on the Eastern Front in Ukraine lately? Do you think somebody from Exxon sent Joe Biden a memo telling him to stop egging on his cipher Poroshenko?

Or maybe it was Cheney - he still has a substantial position in Haliburton stock, doesn't he?

Meanwhile in Canada, first among the me-too nations, at least in the bombastic rhetoric department, it has come to light that Canada leased a Russian ship to make that great Franklin Expedition breakthrough.

That's gotta be tough on Big Steve. Bad-mouthing the Ruskies to kingdom come in front of the TV cameras every chance he gets, but relying on their good offices to get his research team and his corporate sponsors into the Arctic, because even though Harper has talked a lot of ships, Canada under his watch has not actually built any.
