Nothing like a good Chinese pillow fight to start the new year…
I swear to God, if the police weren’t protecting those swine…
Fox News Recap of Occupy Assault :
Hmmm! Maybe someone needs to go down there and protect the cops?
Still time to add your voice…
Sweden and Ireland should be ashamed about their actions during WWII.
I’m half-Irish, half-Danish, but I’ve never felt very close to my Irish side. Since Dad decided to convert to Protestant before I was born I gotten a lot of flack from irritated Catholics over the years, when I see stories like this I say piss on em.
Mr Farrington’s fears are not groundless.
He was one of about 5,000 Irish soldiers who deserted their own neutral army to join the war against fascism and who were brutally punished on their return home as a result.
They were formally dismissed from the Irish army, stripped of all pay and pension rights, and prevented from finding work by being banned for seven years from any employment paid for by state or government funds.
A special “list” was drawn up containing their names and addresses, and circulated to every government department, town hall and railway station – anywhere the men might look for a job. It was referred to in the Irish parliament – the Dail – at the time as a “starvation order”, and for many of their families the phrase became painfully close to the truth.
92-year-old Phil Farrington, took part in the D-Day landings and helped liberate the German death camp at Bergen-Belsen. Most countries would and should be proud to claim men like Mr. Farrington. God Bless him. He would qualify as a Righteous among the Nations I would think.
Touched By An Alien…In Your Special Place

Now, why can’t I get comments like these?:
Been a while since I had any Wookie Nookie.
I’ve always wanted to see a Fremen worship my sandworm.
To boldy go where…lotsa guys have gone before!
It’s all a lot of fun until they lay thousands of eggs in your abdominal cavity.

A worthless desert in South Africa, largely inhabited by drought-stricken sheep and a handful of marginal farmers, turns out to contain rich natural gas reserves that could bring a new wave of economic growth to South Africa and provide huge numbers of well paying jobs for poorly educated workers. The New York Times, of course, is wringing its elegantly manicured hands.
Oh! No! Wealth and prosperity! Poor Africans getting cheap energy and good paying jobs!
I can’t wait until the day I get to dance on the NYT grave.
