The Times Square ball (which
has gone green
) ushered in 2008, along with a host of new do's and don'ts
from our governing elites:
newly enacted SB 777
allows school children to choose their own sex. In
New Jersey, 2008 started with lawmakers considering a measure
apologising for slavery
. Either white guilt still reigns or they're positioning
themselves for an Obama win. In Illinois, it's now
illegal to smoke
in any public place. Watch out, Obama! In New Hampshire,
dozens of gays tied the knot, taking advantage of
a new state law
that legalised civil unions.
The New York Times ended the year pretty much as they began it, with
accusing American soldiers or war crimes on a large scale.
Some things never change.
Across the pond, Paris experienced a relatively calm new year, with only
327 French cars
torched. The UN ended 2007 by passing a
protecting Islam from criticism. The UK rang in
the new year by issuing guidelines
calling for evacuation of any room where the new, energy-saving compact florescent
light bulbs are broken. Seems the toxic mercury in them can be dangerous to your
health. All this went pretty much unreported by the old media, as they obsessed
24/7 on the Iowa caucuses, which
Obama and Huckabee won handily
. The media was also silent on Hillary's dismal
3rd place showing and silent on the news that another one of her major fundraisers
was convicted and sent
Remember Norman Hsu?
Last week was all politics, all the time. Americans were treated to non-stop bloviating,
breathless predictions, pontificating pundits and presidential contenders spouting
the new, tested buzzword, 'CHANGE.' Aargh. (The only thing I wanted to change was
the channel, but, alas, that didn't help.)
The Religion Of Peace
A Dallas man is
for allegedly shooting his two teenage daughters because
their Westernised ways brought him shame. This begs the question: Why is this man
living in the West?
A Saudi man grabbed a microphone at a shopping mall and proceeded to
divorce his wife
. Talk about a quickie divorce. I predict the left will
start considering adoption of Sharia divorce laws.
Looks like Al Qaeda has adopted Western feminism. They're utilizing more
female suicide bombers
although the Koran frowns on involving women in fighting.
Oh well. To overthrow western civilization, you've got to break a few eggs. No comments
forthcoming from NOW.
In Britain, a director of Barclaycard was
forced to leave the company
in disgrace after making a joke deemed offensive
to Muslims. "The results were like Muslims - some were good, some were Shi'ite."
Anyone notice there is no such thing as humor in the religion of peace?
Also in Britain, Islamic extremists have created
where it is too dangerous for non-Muslims to enter. Lets hear
it for tolerance...
A testosterone laden ointment called
(Viagra for women) is now being tested. Couple that with the fact
that beer has been found to contain a
cancer fighting agent
and you have a core plank of the leftist agenda: Heightened
feelings and lowered resistance. What a formula.
Japan has come up with a
robot named Yuki-taro
, designed to clear roads after heavy snows. (Haven't
they heard the earth is melting?) The robot eats snow and poops out bricks of ice.
I s*** you not.
In India, the authenticity of some eunuchs is being questioned. Officials claim
they're powerless to resolve
increasing violent disputes
between the rival - real and fake - factions.
Coming soon to San Francisco.
I'll leave you with some positive news, even though this may affect my ratings.
New figures show that civilian deaths in Iraq are
down a whopping 75%
from a year ago. A new survey shows that, despite the
24/7 crisis mode of the media, most Americans are
with their personal lives. I'm smiling.
And that is the week that was.
