Hi DivaJood

Don't know how I got here...just trippin..lol I like your site
Probably because I'm a Scorpio born in the year of the rat.

"Because — 439 words in to the speech last night — he trotted out 9/11 again."

That CBS video of the interview at Camp David was altered from it's original context. They deleted the part referencing 911. So far they haven't changed the text vesion yet.

There's some info on my blog spot...


Happy trails G:

Diva, completely unrelated, but I couldn't help but think of fowarding this link onto you upon reading it b/c it echoes so many conversations we have previously shared:
Title: The army's tail is wagging the dog
by Gideon Samet
key bit: "Before last summer's war in Lebanon and in its aftermath, the army has been shown to be problematic to an extent that we had not previously known. It's not just the nature of its preparedness or its conduct. A wounded and bitter army is in itself a strategic danger. Chillingly, it tends to feel that the civilian leadership has stabbed it in the back, is pursuing it, isn't letting it "work." The IDF has become too arrogant since 1967. Now it may be too scarred and unconfident. Have such bad times arrived that we must be wary of the army?"
We are terrified of our Neo-Con poisoned govt and what it asks the military to do, while Israel has it own Neo-Con scare-fest going on. THAT is a recipe for disaster if I ever saw one.

The Library Card Maker Device Thingy: the coolest thing since sliced bread. Ya'll need to get one for your own selves. All the cool kids do.

And Tina, Betmo has been talking about the Israeli/Palestinian thing recently. The parallels between our government and the Israeli government are strong; and the IDF has been stretched very thin, just as our own military has done. When Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated after signing the Oslo Accords by a right-wing Israeli citizen, thus began Israel's rapid descent into a right wing government. That is NOT what Zionism was about. Not at all. The Kibbutz model is a perfect example of communism working well - it is true communal living from a philisophical and political point of view. What changed? Well, I think that the real changes both in Israel and here in the States had to do with wealth and power. And, frankly, many of the older US immigrants were on the political right wing; and mnay of the Russian immigrants who were leaving communism behind were also right wing. Greed changes people.

Fun, ain't it? Now, after reading our blogs, the NSA can use these library cards to construct their own database of seditious lefty bloggers. Al Gonzalez must be pleased too :P

Agi, it is the most fun tool I've seen since the face recognition program. So many ways to profile, so little time.
