Shoes and Eggs For Tony Blair, Human Trafficking, Dan Maes Lies Like Jan Brewer

"The ancient rivalries and the heavy burden of history are being lifted among a rising generation of world citizens even as the taupe generation rehashes the same -- may I just say -- absurd arguments over who gets to claim which square inch of the sandbox." - Kathleen Parker
"If you asked me, what's the most disappointing thing Barack Obama has done as President? I'd say, He appointed a "blue-ribbon" commission to study the federal deficit. I mean, how boring and worthy and worthless!" - Joe Klein
"Not only are some of the world's richest CEOs getting richer off the backs of laid off employees, but they're doing it at the same time profits rise and shareholder cigars are lit with martinis in hand celebrating the companies continued reign of predatory capitalism." - John Perkins

Well, I guess former president George W Bush is wise to have been keeping a low profile, lately. Its best that he stick to the Dallas area and not travel abroad any time soon, if what happened to his BFF Tony Blair is an indication: "Protesters hurled shoes and eggs at Tony Blair as he arrived at the first public signing session to promote his memoirs in the Irish capital Dublin." The protesters were young anti-war activists, maybe some of them were drunk, maybe some were literary critics, but most signify the rising feelings from participating in useless wars. On the other hand, maybe George could go over there and tell them what a heckuva good job they were doing... at the very least he could collect enough items to make a very good leather omelette...

To celebrate their compassion for Iraqis, Afghanis, and the soldiers who fought them, France and Italy are expelling the large camps of Gypsies this year. France has been doing this for several years, trying to get them to go back to Romania, which is dirt poor and the reason the Gypsies are out roaming in greater numbers than ever, looking for a better place to live, maybe a job, or at least some marks to ply their traditional money making scams. Italy also would like to see the Gypsies leave, along with the illegal immigrants from Africa, who have been fleeing drought and violence.

There are quite a few Gypsy and Traveler groups here in the US, but you normally wouldn't notice them unless you are part of the nomadic lifestyle that moves through the campsites from state parks to national parks. When I lived in Capitola, which is right on the Monterey Bay in California, I met a few American Gypsies when they came through the area. My neighbor had recently moved out of his van and into a house, which became a meeting area and watering hole for his fellow wandering friends, and we spent many an afternoon watching the sun set over the ocean while sharing a few beers.

The US has indicted an Israeli CEO of Global Horizons in the largest case of human trafficking in US history: "Six recruiters were accused Thursday of luring 400 laborers from Thailand to the United States and forcing them to work, according to a federal indictment that the FBI called the largest human-trafficking case ever charged in U.S. history.

The indictment alleges that the scheme was orchestrated by four employees of labor recruiting company Global Horizons Manpower Inc. and two Thailand-based recruiters. It said the recruiters lured the workers with false promises of lucrative jobs, then confiscated their passports, failed to honor their employment contracts and threatened to deport them." More and more, we are finding Israelis becoming involved in criminal activities like human trafficking and harvesting of organs for surgeries. Coincidentally, a large percentage of them are linked to Russian - Jewish mafiyas...

The Israeli - Palestinian peace talks may have already been paying off, as the Iranian foreign minister has cancelled his trip to Cairo, where he was to meet with members of Hamas and Hizbollah. He had been in  Beirut when the skirmish happened over trimming bushes in a no-man zone earlier in the summer. The incident had been a taunt from the Israelis, and the initial orders to shoot came from an officer who was also a member of Hizbollah, and may have wanted to impress the Iranian as to how tough and rough and ready his men were... But, not to be outdone, Hamas fired yet another damned rocket from Gaza. I don't know why these guys do this, the rockets don't have enough range to hit anything and usually clunk out in the desert. Many of the rockets are fired on Friday nights, so maybe its a celebration the way we like to light off fireworks - these Hamas guys get so wasted on hashish or even cranked up on speed, and fire off a rocket just to watch the fire trail and colors it makes - all for the greater glory of the oppressed Palestinian people, of course. I used to set off bottle rockets at the end of happy hour when I was living in Thailand, so I can relate... one minute your sitting and loudly discussing the state of the world, and the next you're either firing off rockets or dragged off to a whorehouse...

 Surprisingly, I have found very few newspapers in the Middle East favoring Hamas right now, so my predictions that it will fade from existence through lack of relevance may come true. Unfortunately, they will want to go out with a bang, and are still trying to smuggle in whatever munitions they can get their hands on.

I don't know what the fallout of Arizona's governor tall tales of headless men in the desert, it seems more to scare small children huddled around the campfire. Watch out, or they will place some cactus on their heads and chase you if you have been bad! She has had to apologize for her remarks, but the fact that she is brian dead remains, which is why she cancelled all other debates against her opponent.

It must be a tea party trait, to lie like there's no tomorrow. Our Republican candidate for Governor, who was backed by the tea partyers, won the primary because his opponent got called out for having plagerized a report he was paid $300,000 for. Unfortunately, the person he copied from is now a state supreme court judge, so Dan Maes won by default.

But good old Dan has turned out to be a liar, too, and has been called out by the Denver Post. So I will restart my subscription on Monday... Dan claimed to have been a secret undercover agent during his time as a rookie cop in Kansas, telling his wife and family this exaggeration, and they believed it enough that his wife sent out letters on his behalf telling how brave he was during his time as a secret agent. At least we know he didn't marry her for her brains, or her sense of honor... He also put the tall tale in his online biography on his website, evidently not caring that one simple phone call to Kansas was all it took to separate fact from convenient fiction.

As a result, Tom Tancredo jumped in as a third party candidate, thinking that he would get all of those conservative voters, not realizing that even they think he is too crazy. Tom is to the right of Jan Brewer on immigration... And, as for the rest of the Republican establishment: "State Republicans are increasingly concerned that Maes will lose to Democrat John Hickenlooper in the fall. Many of them are now unendorsing him – a step that’s pretty unusual in politics. (What’s next? Will they unfriend him on Facebook as well?)... GOP US Senate nominee Ken Buck withdrew his support for Maes on Friday. So did Rep. Mike Coffman. Other prominent Colorado Republicans that have come out against Maes include former Sen. Hank Brown and former Rep. Bob Beuprez." Bob wanted Dan to drop out so that the establishment would then choose him to replace him, but Dan will stay in until the bitter end. Beuprez ran last time and was beaten by the current governor, because Beuprez also slipped down into the sleaze, a case that still hasn't cleared up in federal court.

And if you haven't seen the ads by the Democratic candidate, John Hickenlooper, seek them out. Hopefully, they will have been preserved on You Tube, because they are the most clever and wonderfully humorous ads I've ever seen. They make you happy to vote for the guy...

  1. In the last four months Jan Brewer has been caught lying, three times and counting.

    The comments made on June 16, 2010, and June 27, 2010, clearly indicates that the Brewer says that immigrants are beheading people in the United States desert. She first ran away from the question and the press when confronted with the question. She finally when to FOX/ FAKE News to recant her lie.

    When Brewer was confronted with the fact the two of her top Advisors (Paul Senseman, Chuck Coughlin) are lobbyist for “Private Prisons” giant CCA she first ran away from the question and the press.

    In an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that her father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. Do you see a trend here?

    Brewer signed into law SB 1070 Bill (Did she even read it?), lied about the crime rates in AZ (even Janet Napolitano knows that all crimes rates went down), and now we find out that she is in the pockets of PRIVATE PRISONS who stand to benefit with the increase Federal jailing, and thus they will pay her back, I wonder if it has to do anything about the fact that her son was transferred to a brand new prison, he was convicted for rape and sexual assault, I guess the fruit does not fall far the tree.

    “Private Prisons Lie”

    “AZ Crime Rates”

    “Father Lie”
