Schooled!

Continuing with to today’s Salute To India theme, Carol sends me this one.

It was the first day of a school in USA and a new Indian student named Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade. The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty , or give me Death’?” She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand up: ‘Patrick Henry, 1775’ he said. ‘Very good!’ Who said ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth?’ Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar. ‘Abraham Lincoln, 1863’ said Chandrasekhar. The teacher snapped at the class, ‘Class, you should be ashamed. Chandrasekhar, who is new to our country, knows more about its history than you do.’

She heard a loud whisper: ‘F--- the Indians,’
‘Who said that?’ she demanded.

Chandrasekhar put his hand up. ‘General Custer, 1862.’

At that point, a student in the back said, ‘I’m gonna puke.’
The teacher glares around and asks ‘All right! Now, who said that?’

Again, Chandrasekhar says, ‘George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.’

Now furious, another student yells, ‘Oh yeah? Suck this!’
Chandrasekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher , ‘Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!’

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said ‘You little shit. If you say anything else, I’ll kill you.’
Chandrasekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice, ‘ Michael Jackson to the child witnesses testifying against him 2004.’

The teacher fainted.
And as the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, ‘Oh shit, we’re screwed!’

And Chandrasekhar said quietly, ‘I think it was the American people, November 4th, 2008”.

Not Completely Dead Yet

Two Species Found, Both Thought Extinct

Well this is nice.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Researchers studying a rare and endangered species of penguin have uncovered a previously unknown species that disappeared about 500 years ago.

The yellow-eyed penguin is considered one of the world’s rarest. An estimated population of 7,000 in New Zealand is the focus of an extensive conservation effort.




Mouse-sized primates called pygmy tarsiers, not seen alive in 85 years, have come out of hiding from a imagemountaintop in a cloud forest in Indonesia. Weighing just 2 ounces (57 grams), they resemble mini-gremlin creatures, as they have big eyes and are covered in dense coats of fur to keep warm in a damp, chilly habitat.

The last sighting of this primate alive was in 1921 when live specimens were collected and processed for a museum collection.

This past summer, the team trapped two males and a female. They placed radio collars on the animals for tracking.

It must be an Enemy Thang, you wouldn’t understand

Obama and Condi now have something in common




Al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader used a racial epithet to insult Barack Obama in a message posted Wednesday, describing the president-elect in demeaning terms that imply he does the bidding of whites.

The message appeared chiefly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies. Ayman al-Zawahri said in the message, which appeared on militant Web sites, that Obama is “the direct opposite of honorable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.

In al-Qaida’s first response to Obama’s victory, al-Zawahri also called the president-elect — along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — “house negroes.”

Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term “abeed al-beit”, which literally translates as “house slaves.” But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as “house negroes.”

The turbaned tumblefuck then spent the rest of the 11 minute video ranting on about the usual crap, full of veiled threats and anti-American hatred. Big whup.

Welcome to the big boys club Barry.

Now that’s the Chicago Way New Delhi Way!


Indian Navy Sinks Pirate Mother Ship




An Indian naval vessel sank a suspected pirate “mother ship” in the Gulf of Aden and chased two attack boats into the night, officials said Wednesday, as separate bands of brigands seized Thai and Iranian ships in the lawless seas.

The owners of a seized Saudi oil supertanker, meanwhile, negotiated for the release of the ship, anchored off the coast of Somalia.

A multinational naval force has increased patrols in the waters between the Arabian Peninsula and the Horn of Africa, where pirates have grown bolder and more violent. The force scored a rare success Tuesday when the Indian warship, operating off the coast of Oman, stopped a ship similar to a pirate vessel described in numerous bulletins. The Indian navy said the pirates fired on the INS Tabar after the officers asked to search it.

“Pirates were seen roaming on the upper deck of this vessel with guns and rocket propelled grenade launchers,” said a statement from the Indian navy. Indian forces fired back, sparking fires and a series of onboard blasts — possibly due to exploding ammunition — and destroying the ship.

They chased one of two speedboats shadowing the larger ship. One was later found abandoned. The other escaped, according to the statement.

Larger “mother ships” are often used to take gangs of pirates and smaller attack boats into deep water, and can be used as mobile bases to attack merchant vessels.

Last week, Indian navy commandos operating from a warship foiled a pirate attempt to hijack a ship in the Gulf of Aden. The navy said an armed helicopter with marine commandos prevented the pirates from boarding and hijacking the Indian merchant vessel.

Today there is a new word in Hindi: Oorah! trophy

The INS Tabar is a fairly new frigate in their navy, commissioned 4 1/2 years ago. It carries a single 100mm gun with a high rate of fire, numerous supersonic cruise missiles, and the usual array of torpedoes and air defenses. Tabar has been on station in the Gulf of Aden for just more than 2 weeks now, and this is the 2nd intervention they have done. The first one on November 11, resulted in the “suspected” pirates running away. The Tabar was built by the Russians and is 410 feet long.

UNSAFE AND UNWELCOME: COUNCIL BANS DOOR MATS.

If these are council homes, I can just about understand it.  It isn’t elf ‘n’ safety I bet.
It’s all about being sued should someone actually trip and get hurt.
Who owns the property? Ah, the city?  Lot-a-money there betcha.  S U E!!


Council bans welcome mats

Portsmouth News
By Rob Dabrowski

Residents in a block of flats have been told to get rid of welcome mats – because they are a trip hazard.
Council bureaucrats said the mats posed a ‘health and safety risk’.
And they have even threatened to take residents to court – with the threat of eviction – if their demands aren’t met.

Letters signed by Gosport housing officer Elspeth White were sent out after a council surveyor visited.

Three residents in Revenge House, at The Anchorage, Gosport, have been told to remove the rubber-backed mats as people could trip on them, particularly if they needed to leave in an emergency.

The council says the health risk is increased by narrow corridors.

Resident Ingrid Buckland, 62, has removed her mat for fear of the council taking action.

‘I just can’t understand all the fuss over these mats – it seems so futile,’ she said. ‘It’s just such a petty little thing and it has got out of hand.

‘I don’t know why the council is saying it might take action over a 99p doormat. I should think the council has bigger things to worry about than three doormats but I’ve moved mine because I don’t want to cause any trouble, it’s just not worth it.’

Gosport Borough Council says if the mats aren’t removed the tenants would be breaking the terms of their lease, which states no objects should be placed in communal area.

Officers will return later this month to check if mats have gone.
But the head of the council’s own housing board thinks it is over the top.

Cllr Keith Gill said: ‘I would be opposed to any kind of legal action. That would be heavy-handed.

‘This is sending out the wrong message and there are more important things that the council should be worrying about.’

Other council tenants in the borough could be sent letters if their mats are deemed to be dangerous.

But the council has not enforced a full ban, saying it would assess each mat on an individual basis.

Council spokeswoman Brenda Brooker said: ‘We, as a local authority and landlord, have a duty of care to all persons entering our communal areas and these should be free from any hazards or obstructions, likely to cause health and safety issues or prevent evacuation.

‘If people are aggrieved at the council’s decision that they should remove items which we consider pose a risk, we have a complaints procedure where they can ask for that decision to be reviewed.

‘Secondly, we would consider the health and safety risk that the particular problem presents and then would consider appropriate action, possibly involving legal action.’

Gosport council’s mat ban is the latest barmy health and safety regulation to be introduced, says the Taxpayers’ Alliance.

Campaign director Mark Wallace said Britain was fast being turned into a nanny state with more and more mindless rules.

‘It is ridiculous that health and safety regulations have gone so far,’ he said.

‘If these safety officers don’t have anything better to do, then
clearly we have no need for them.

‘What started off as a national exercise in preventing serious harm has ended up as an exercise in how to boss people around.’

Tom Mullarkey, chief executive of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, was also against the mat ban.

He said: ‘The application of common sense and balance is much more reasonable than the seeking of mindless increments towards absolute safety.’

However, the council’s own Lib Dem-run administration has opposed the move.

Cllr Peter Chegwyn, chairman of the community and environment board, added: ‘There’s no question of us taking legal action over something this trivial.’

FATHER ARRESTED ON WORD OF WITNESS DEEMED “NOT FIT” TO MAKE STATEMENT. HUH?

And according to the keystone kops, the witless witness wasn’t in any condition to what ?  Not “fit to make a statement that night?”

I’m all for nailing adults who abuse kids to the wall and leave em there as a warning to others but this case is ridiculous. Or so it seems here anyway.

It this a case of guilty till proved otherwise? 

Father locked up in cell for smacking son
A father was arrested and locked in a police cell overnight for smacking his son’s bottom.

By Richard Savill
Last Updated: 12:48PM GMT 18 Nov 2008

Mark Frearson, a co-director of a parcel company, said he told off his son Harry because the seven-year-old walked away from him alone after dark while they were shopping together at a local store.

Mr Frearson, 47, found him in a nearby park 10 minutes later. “I called him to me and smacked his bottom for leaving me, telling him never to do it again,” he said.

But a witness called police and, three hours later, four officers and a specialist child support officer arrived at his house.

They told him that a child had been assaulted, and Mr Frearson replied that he had smacked his son once on the bottom.

“They asked my son what had happened and he said ‘Dad smacked me for being outside the shop’. The police then examined my son for any marks and there were none.”

The officers took Harry in a police car to his mother’s home. They arrested Mr Frearson on suspicion of assault, and took him to the police station.

“I was horrified and bewildered at the course of action being taken on some stranger’s action,” he said.

After about an hour, he claimed, officers told him they could not carry out an interview as the witness “was not fit to make a statement that night”.

Mr Frearson spent the night in a “freezing” cell with two blankets and was released the next day at 10am.

He said: “The first words said to me were ‘The witness has changed his statement’. The ‘witness’ had originally alleged I was kicking my son to the floor.

“I can understand the concerns of the police but they seemed far too ready to presume me guilty and then cause distress to my son by taking him from me.

“My ex-wife (the boy’s mother) told them the allegation was ridiculous but they proceeded regardless with what I considered their over-the-top reaction.”

Mr Frearson has made a formal complaint to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

He said the police reaction was “massively over-the-top” and the experience was traumatic for his son.

Mr Frearson, from Plymouth, in Devon, said: “I find it shocking how easy it is to have someone arrested. To think that all this happened on the back of one allegation. I want an apology.

“I am still angered and bewildered at the events of that night. Why was I not allowed to stay in my own home until statements could be made in the morning? It seemed a knee jerk reaction.”

Mr Frearson said he wanted to know what state the witness was in, if he was unable to make a statement that night. “Whether he was drunk or drugged, I don’t know. Why has he not been arrested for wasting police time, and mine, come to that?”

Mr Frearson said the incident happened at about 6pm on October 28, while Harry, who lives with his mother, Kate, 33, from whom Mr Frearson is divorced, was staying with him during half term.

He said: “I can hardly ever remember smacking my children. I have two older children. I don’t smack a child to hurt them, but to show they have done wrong. There is a difference between smacking and hitting.”

Devon and Cornwall police said it could not comment as a formal complaint had been made.

A BIT OF AN UNUSUAL POSTING BECAUSE … IT’S CLEVER AND INTERESTING?

On my way to somewhere else I tripped over this.  There’s a quick 4second spot for Scotland, and then what we in states might call a PSA.
Do they still btw?  PSA, Public Service Announcement.

Well, I thought it was quite well done and a fun thing to watch, don’t be too quick to quit the video as there’s a small bit of reading at the end.

If I have one other comment to make I’d say it also works both ways re. the message.  You’ll see what I mean.

This video appeared in the morning Telegraph and other places as well I’m certain.

HEY .. A POLISH JOKE:  Poland denies Barack Obama cannibal ‘joke’ (no kidding)

Why would this be a bad joke anyway?  It’s not even in bad taste.  Whoops. Did I say Taste?  Heck, it’s a funny line.
People just can’t laugh at each other anymore.

Here, check this out at Vilmar’s place.  After you’ve read this.  Go Here. > http://antzinpantz.com/kns/

Poland denies Barack Obama cannibal ‘joke’
Poland has been forced to deny its foreign minister ‘joked’ that President-Elect Barack Obama’s grandparents were cannibals.

By Matthew Day in Warsaw
Last Updated: 2:30PM GMT 18 Nov 2008

In an episode that could potentially strain relations between Warsaw and Washington, Radek Sikorski, an Oxford-educated politician who has lived in the US, was reported to have made the jibe by an opposition politician, Ryszard Czarnecki.

Writing in his blog, Mr Czarnecki, an MEP, quoted the foreign minister as saying: “Have you heard that Obama may have a Polish connection? His grandfather ate a Polish missionary.”

A spokesman for the Polish foreign office conceded that Mr Sikorski had made the controversial comment, but denied that the foreign minister had intended to insult Mr Obama, whose father was Kenyan.

“Mr Sikorski did not tell a racist joke,” said Piotr Paszkowski, the spokesman. “He was only giving an example of the unpalatable and racist ‘jokes’ that surround President Elect Obama.”

Donald Tusk, the Polish prime minister, has made no comment on the affair. It appears that Mr Sikorski’s position is not under threat despite calls from opposition politicians for an investigation to deter if the foreign minister broke anti-racism laws.

The derogatory comment about Mr Obama’s family may also have become common staple in Polish political circles. Wojciech Olejniczak, the leader of Poland’s main Left-wing party, the SLD, alleged that he first heard it from Jaroslaw Kaczynski, a Right-wing former prime minister and twin brother of the Polish president, Lech Kaczynski.

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO:  THE DEPT. of ENERGY .. ?

I really had forgotten all about this agency.  Wonder how many more there are out there.  ???

Subject: Remember why the Department of Energy was established??


Does anybody out there have any memory of the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter Administration?

Anybody? Anything? No?

Didn’t think so!!

Bottom line . . . we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency the reason for which (probably) not one person who reads this can remember.

Ready?

It was very simple, and at the time everybody thought it very appropriate:

The Department of Energy was instituted 8-04-1977-TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

HEY, PRETTY EFFICIENT, HUH?

NOW its 2008, 31 YEARS LATER, AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS NECESSARY DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR, THEY HAVE 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES, AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES AND LOOK AT THE JOB THEY HAVE DONE!

THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY ‘WHAT WAS I THINKING?’

Ah yes, good ole bureaucracy.

And now we are going to turn the Banking system over to them?

God Help us.

Somebody has to say it

image



NOVEMBER 22, 2008




The media was on Bush’s case for years over his “mission accomplished” speech, even though what he said was utterly correct: that the really large scale combat operations in Iraq were over. But because of that “blunder”, and the PMSM spending months playing up the “McCain wants to stay in Iraq for 100 years” tripe, nobody wants to mention the obvious: that the fighting in Iraq is over. And it has been over for some time. Sure, there might be a couple little leftover splodeydopes with nothing better to do but push their little buttons. There might be a little action here and there for squad sized groups of soldiers. But it’s a done deal, and it has been for several months. So in that vein, since Kate Smith has left us long ago and there are no other large women ready to sing, ZombieTime feels it’s up to us to state the obvious. We might as well pick a date too, and use that to remind folks what has been so obvious that you haven’t heard a word about it on TV. So let’s use November 22nd. It’s as good a day as any.





But where’s the official announcement?

The only reason that the war has not been declared “over” is that the media, which was generally opposed to the war and opposed to any of President Bush’s policies, doesn’t want to give him and his supporters the satisfaction of having been right. The media wants U.S. troops to return home, but only on condition that they do so with their tails between their legs in defeat—not as victorious liberators, which would invalidate five years of subtle and not-so-subtle anti-war propaganda on the part of the left-leaning media. The Bush administration for its part has not declared victory for two probable reasons: first, because they fear that by so doing they would only increase the call by the media and liberal Democrats to “bring the troops home now”; and also by so doing they might invite some last-ditch spectacular terror attack by the few remaining jihadists in order to embarrass the administration. And the incoming Obama administration will certainly never announce victory, since Obama spent over a year campaigning for the Democratic primary as the anti-war candidate. So both sides refuse to say the war is over. Even though it is, in fact, over.

It is up to the American people to declare victory. Which is exactly what we are doing right now.

Even the little altercations are becoming rarer. Bill Roggio, who has done a superb job of keeping abreast of the Iraq situation, can only run a story from last week, in which our guys rounded up a bunch of insurgent wanna-bes after killing their leaders who were hiding in a hole in the ground:

Iraqi and US forces killed five al Qaeda fighters and captured 149 suspects, including two senior leaders, during operations in Iraq’s North over the past three days. In Mosul, an Iraqi soldier shot and killed two US soldiers and wounded six others during a joint patrol in the eastern part of the city.

Iraqi forces killed five al Qaeda fighters and rounded up 67 suspected al Qaeda operatives and insurgents were in the northeastern province of Diyala. Nine local al Qaeda emirs were captured “in an underground bunker used for torturing and beheading captives,” AFP reported, while five operatives were killed when troops raided a weapons cache.

So it’s not early to make this call. It wasn’t too early a couple of months ago, when Michael Yon first brought the subject up. And don’t be fooled by a little bit of trouble here and there; go read what Zombie has to say about that.

It’s over, over there.
