Tea Party Is Still Right

Urgent message from ChiCom government treasurer Wi O. Nyu: America, yu suk! Too much debts! Pay now; no more borrow cheap!

Hey, let’s raise that debt ceiling again, and increase the level of deficit spending!

Chinese downgrade US credit rating (again!)

A Chinese ratings agency downgraded its US sovereign credit rating Thursday despite Washington’s resolution of the debt ceiling deadlock, warning that fundamentals for a potential default remained “unchanged”.

Dagong lowered its ratings for US local and foreign currency credit from A to A-, maintaining a negative outlook, the agency said in a statement.

The announcement came after the US Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed a bill that extends the nation’s borrowing authority and ends a two-week government shutdown.

The fundamental situation that the debt growth rate significantly outpaces that of fiscal income and gross domestic product remains unchanged,” Dagong said in the statement, adding Washington’s solvency was vulnerable as old debts were still repaid through raising new debts.

“Hence the government is still approaching the verge of default crisis, a situation that cannot be substantially alleviated in the foreseeable future,” it said.

Dagong made headlines in August 2011 when it lowered its main rating for US sovereign debt after Congress passed an earlier bill to raise Washington’s debt ceiling.

Ain’t that just wonderful?

But hey, it’s those CRAZY EXTREMISTS in the Tea Party with their asinine idea that the government should try to significantly reduce spending and pay down the debt a big chunk. Guess we’ll have to call the money boys in China The Green Tea Party.

MEANWHILE, JP Morgan Chase has decided that businesses can no longer send money out of the country in large amounts. Which is going to make it hard to pay for things like a container ship full of refrigerators, or a tank ship full of oil, etc.

We hope you’re paying attention.

If there were ever a red flag warning about the economic and financial destruction to come, JP Morgan Chase Bank began flying it this morning.

In a shocking report from Infowars we learned that mega-behemoth Chase has issued letters to thousands of business customers indicating that they will no longer be allowing international wire transfers or cash deposits/withdrawals in excess of a $50,000 monthly cap.
This is nothing short of a capital control, which is an economic strategy designed to limit the transfer of money. It is a strategy implemented only during times of economic or financial distress, most often as a precursor to wealth seizures by the state.

Be warned, Chase bank is the first of likely many banks to begin the lock-down of the financial wealth of private individuals in the United States of America.

The new restrictions are particularly ironic because JP Morgan Chase (along with other large banking conglomerates) is a primary shareholder, and thus owner, of the Federal Reserve, which has been responsible for sending trillions of freshly printed dollars outside of the country over the last several years.

The fact that these letters were being sent out to Chase customers was confirmed at the time that we published, but in the last 24 hours we have confirmed that even large businesses doing international transactions have also received the same letters.
What this constitutes is a war on cash and a war on small business and individuals. Two years ago we saw a giant backlash against Bank of America when they announced customers would be charged for using their own money via their debit card. We have crossed the rubicon where now the currency has been so devalued that you will have to pay fees to have your money in a bank or use a debit card.

In saying that international wire transfers are too much of a risk, Chase Bank might as well be bankrupt because it is telling you there is no money to withdraw.

This is where the mega banks have wanted to take us all along – a total cashless society that destroys all privacy and allows them to fine and fee the general population into serfdom. This is clearly a major step towards capital controls as we saw with the Cyprus bail-in.

... here it comes ...

as much a cultural and social threat to europe as islam.  the roma.

This fight has been going on since 2012. Some had thought it had gone away.
But no.  Another idiot enabler wants to curse his fellow citizens with scum who are not fit to live, by moving gypos into a civilized area of Paris.  If successful, the area would quickly resemble an open garbage dump.  Which for them of course is only natural.  Vermin scurry around and burrow in filth. It’s their natural habitat. If one doesn’t exist already, they will create a new one.

Look at this.

French prime minister sparks fury by backing plans for Roma camp in one of the most exclusive parts of Paris

· Proposed camp would be in 16th district
· Area is known for its upmarket shops and restaurants
· Jean-Marc Ayrault said he can see no reason camp wouldn’t work
· Manuel Valls last month called for all Roma to return to home country

By Peter Allen In Paris

The prime minister of France has infuriated cabinet colleagues by backing plans to set up a Roma gypsy camp in one of the most affluent districts of Paris.

Jean-Marc Ayrault, one of the most traditional Socialists in his government, said he could see no reason why the plan for the 16th arrondissement should not be a success.

‘Why not?’ he said, when told about the project put forward by elected officials from the Leftish Front.
It would see thousands of mainly Romanian gypsies setting up their caravans and huts around a chic area renowned for its upmarket shops and restaurants.

This is despite efforts by successive French governments to smash the camps to pieces and to deport the gypsies who live in them.
Such issues will be of particular interest to Britain, which is preparing to welcome thousands of Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants next year when EU labour laws are revised.

Last month Mr Ayrault’s colleague Manuel Valls, the Interior Minister, said it was ‘an illusion to think that we can solve the Roma problem through integration.’

Mr Valls wants to do everything possible to keep the Roma out of France, as he associates them with crime and public health problems.

His views were supported by a BVA poll which revealed that 77 per cent of French people agreed that Roma were inherently ‘different’.

French police board school bus to arrest 15-year-old Roma schoolgirl so she could be thrown out of France with her family

· The case of teenager Leonarda Dibrani has shocked French society
· She was met by officers after trip and hauled off in front of her friends
· Now the French Government has backtracked and ordered a probe
By Sam Webb

The case of a 15-year-old girl arrested by police in front of fellow pupils so she could be expelled to Kosovo with her family as illegal immigrants has caused outrage across France.

The government, trying to save face, is now investigating the case of Leonarda Dibrani who wants to return to the country, and has described her shame when she was escorted by police from a school bus after a field trip.

Immigrants’ rights groups and even members of the governing Socialist Party are calling the conditions of the expulsion shocking.
The Interior Ministry said the family’s application for asylum had been rejected and it no longer had the right to stay in France. It said they repeatedly refused to leave, so police detained the father and deported him to Kosovo on October 8.

They also detained the mother and five of their children, but Leonarda was away on a school field trip. Police met her bus when it returned.
The teenager ‘was crying, she was upset… she was discouraged’ when she got off the bus, Mr Boy said, and teachers and other children were shaken by the incident.

Prime minister Jean-Marc Ayrault ordered an investigation into how she was taken into custody and said that if any errors were found, the family will be allowed back to France for further examination.

The Education Without Frontiers Network said the expulsion was a setback for their efforts to keep illegal immigrants in school and to protect them from police intervention.

It is also an embarrassment for Socialist president Francois Hollande’s government, which has portrayed France as a haven for the world’s oppressed and distanced itself from his conservative predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy’s tough policies toward Roma and other immigrants.

Last month Manuel Valls, the Interior Minister, said it was ‘an illusion to think that we can solve the Roma problem through integration.’
Mr Valls wants to do everything possible to keep the Roma out of France, as he associates them with crime and public health problems.

On October 6 Five Eastern Europeans were held in Paris after a £1million jewellery raid by up to 15 men brandishing sledgehammers and axes.
Police believe a Roma gipsy gang was behind the well-organised robbery at a Swiss luxury watchmaker’s store in the French capital.

the mail urges not to follow american example of political advertising

I don’t know about most of you folks, how could I on this topic, but I have to ask.

Do political ads especially in the national elections turn you off?  Even with our own side.

I had not given it much thought over time to be honest.  Some ads I saw some yrs ago I thought toe curling.  And seeing politicians with babies always seemed so false. 

What brought this on was an editorial I saw recently in a fairly conservative paper here, knocking the American political ads at election time.
So I thought I’d run this by our group here to see if you folks feel similar and what your views on the subject are.

From the Mail

ONE American example we should not follow is their tolerance of paid-for political advertising on TV and radio.  Most of this is savagely negative.  It gives power to the rich, takes from the poor and makes it impossible to set workable limits on campaign finance.

While it may seem entertaining to visitors, it has done nothing to raise the US’s dispiriting low voting levels.

I don’t know how they know all of that but ..... I haven’t seen their system being ‘all that’ either.  And I read that the voters here have stayed away in droves. Now if that is true I’d have no way of knowing personally. I don’t go out and survey or count voters. But their conservative party at the last election could not get enough votes to rule alone and so the cons. have been tied to a coalition govt. with the Liberal Democrats (Lib/Dems so called) and things have not gone exactly as cons would like. Lib/Dems are very liberal, mostly left wing, supporters of things gween so you get the picture.

But the question remains .... can we do better?  And with a country the size of the USA, how else should ppl running for office get the word out? Whistle stop train tours?  Well, it worked ok in 1912.
With the very real problem they have here tied to the EU and all, I’m surprised the Daily Mail has the time to study us and pass judgments. Question.  Do they have a valid point?  I’m not sure I agree with them. I don’t see how we could do things any other way. Although we surely don’t need mud slinging but when it’s done, I think the public is mostly smart enough to recognize it.

Oh ... they do not approve of Guantanamo and want us to close the place.
I say sure thing.  When they make reparation payments to the descendents of the brave Boers of so long ago.  Well why the heck not?  Aren’t they stupidly making payouts to the Mau .... oh wait. Yeah. I was forgetting.  The Boers were all white.  Never mind.

hitchens believe the cons. here have lost the plot. he may well be correct.

Peter Hitchens is so conservative he doesn’t recognize the current Tory Party (Cons.) as being conservative at all.  Quite a few others who think the same btw.  And usually with good reason.  Anyway, not my place to harp on about the Tories here, that’s Peter’s job, and a good one he does.

Are the Tories lying to us again? Just ask Mandy!

By Peter Hitchens

How good to see that Mandy Rice-Davies is still very much around. Mandy is the most perceptive political thinker of our age, and her wisdom has never been so badly needed.

As an 11-year-old schoolboy, more innocent than it would be conceivable to be today, I was baffled by the Profumo affair.
What was a call-girl? Or an osteopath? Why would anyone want to go to an all-night Soho drinking club? (I still don’t know the answer to that one.)
But amid the yellowish swirling smog of scandal, Mandy’s pert features and her quick wit appealed to me far more than the smouldering mystery of poor Christine Keeler.

I was immensely delighted by her riposte to a barrister who informed her that some peer or other said he had never met her. She replied simply: ‘He would, wouldn’t he?’

This was a person who knew how the world worked. Much later she is said to have described her life as a ‘slow descent into respectability’, which deserves to be true, even if she didn’t actually say it.

Alongside Otto von Bismarck’s advice,

‘Never believe anything until it has been officially denied’,

I have made Mandy’s piece of wisdom about people telling obvious lies because it suits them my watchword during four decades of scribbling on the backs of advertisements, my chosen trade.

If it fits, it’s true. And my goodness, how it fits the Conservative Party Conference just ended. I mean, during decades in full power, and during the past three years in coalition, these Tories have had so many chances to crack down on crime, rip up the Human Rights charter, rescue marriage and remove us from the EU.

Have they lifted a fat finger to do so? Not once. They’ve been too busy legalising same-sex marriage.

But now, with an Election approaching that they will certainly lose, all these things are suddenly being pledged. Do I believe that David Cameron, Chris Grayling or Theresa May really expect (or want) to wake up on the morning of May 16, 2015 and find themselves with the power to do the things they promised last week? Of course not.

Their private polling tells them that they are as likely to land on the Moon that day. But they do have a tiny, pitifully remote hope of forming another coalition with the Liberal Democrats, and it is that which fills their heads.

If only they can save enough seats for a second pact, then they will keep the chauffeured cars, the grandiose offices, the unctuous officials, the large salaries and pensions, and the other baubles that are all they really care about.

And for those baubles, they will abandon everything they pledged to you last week. Mandy’s Law applies as ever. You only had to listen to them to know that they would say that, wouldn’t they?

He also has this to say and he does have a legitimate point to make on the subject.

Why criminals aren’t punished

People who want to get rid of what’s left of our drug laws always make a great fuss when senior policemen join their side, as if this were a hugely important surprise.

In fact, the police have been prominent in this campaign for years. There are two reasons. One is that the senior ranks of the police are crammed with Left-wing social science graduates.

The other is that the police reasonably see no point in arresting people when they know the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts will not punish them. An arrest, under current rules, can ruin a constable’s whole day.

As the retiring magistrate Alan Bissell rightly pointed out last week, we have pretty much abandoned the idea of punishment. Almost all crimes, from drugs to burglary and rape, can now be squared away with a ‘caution’, and marked as solved.

It’ll be murder next, once there are so many killings that the police can’t keep up with them either.

NJ Turns Bluer

Steve Lonegan got creamed at the polls in special election for state senator. Steve Lonegan is the closest thing to an actual Conservative that this state has seen in generations. He isn’t FAR RIGHT. He isn’t a NAZI (I know, I know, but. the media.) He isn’t RADICAL. He’s really just an actual Republican, a normal Conservative. When the GOP had the primary for Governor the other year, it was Lonegan against Chris Christie. Christie, who many on what little of the Right remains feel is AT BEST a RINO, seemed like a tax ‘n spend gun hating Democrat in comparison. But Steve frightens people somehow. He doesn’t spin the bullshit, nor does he sugar coat the turds. So Christie creamed him in the governor’s primary back then, and went on to win that race. Lonegan, still trying to be relevant, or in theory still trying to save and serve NJ, got his name in as the Republican in this current special election to replace a Senator. Cuz Lautenberg died after being Senator for 3871 years. Burn in Hell Frank, you disgusting crotchwipe. Burn forever.

But today’s race was Lonegan vs Booker. And Cory Booker destroyed him.

Booker is slightly Black, totally Left, and fully corrupt. He’s one of Obama’s sycophants, and thus has the media in his pocket. And he’s slightly Black. That’s all it takes. Oh, and it said (D) next to his name at the voting booth. So he wins. And he’ll be our new Senator for as long as he wants the job.

I haven’t seen the polling data, but I’ll bet you a donut it breaks down just as it always does. Us rubes up here in the NW corner, a fifth of the state in area but barely 1/20th in population, voted bright Red. So did the SE quarter, excluding Atlantic City. And there will be a red pocket in the middle, somewhere around Fort Dix in the Pine Barrens in the middle of the state. And ritzy northern Bergen County - not southern, only slightly upscale southern Bergen County, but the the tony northern part along the NY border - will be somewhat purple. Pity that these areas, call it half the land area, don’t have as much as half the population. Nope, that’s all in the urban areas. The rest of the state, including all the ghetto cities - Camden, Patterson, Passaic, Elizabeth, Perth Amboy, Plainfield, etc - blue on blue on blue. And that’s where all the people live. All the government dependent people. Like roaches, packed into sardine cans. Once you get past the urban Hola/Ebonix zones, most of the state is really not that populated.

I don’t know why we even bother to vote anymore. We never get represented. Flegh, even our “Republican” governor is a best a RINO. How about that, a hippo and a RINO at the same time.

I hate this state.

New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker on Wednesday won the state’s special Senate election – keeping the open seat for his party.

“Thank you so much, New Jersey,” Booker said. “I’m proud to be your Senator-elect.”

The Associated Press declared Newark’s high-profile mayor the winner over Republican Steve Lonegan, 55-to-44 percent, with 85 percent of polls reporting.

The 44-year-old Booker fills the open seat of Democratic Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in June. He becomes the second African-American in the Senate along with Republican Tim Scott of South Carolina.

Toldja so ... fuck, the guy is whiter than I am (no, not really) Ok he’s paler than Vin Diesel (true) but it’s ever so important that we keep being told how A-A he is.

Oooh, da Black Man winned!
Sheee-it, he so pass, Eric Holder look ebony nex to that

Lonegan cut into Booker’s early, 27 point lead in the final weeks but got no closer than 13 points in the final days – even after the country’s largest Tea Party political action committee brought 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to New Jersey last weekend.

Booker also relied on some star power, including fundraising help from Oprah Winfrey.

Cory Booker ... he’s so BLACK he gets Oprah to campaign for him. And Teh Won too.

Voters went to the polls as Capitol Hill lawmakers voted to end the partial government shutdown—a fiscal crisis that helped define each candidate’s political platform during the two-month campaign.

Booker accused Congress of failing voters by not finding a way to work together while the Tea Party-backed Lonegan supported the shutdown fight, arguing against the ObamaCare concept of government-directed health insurance and calling for a one-year delay.
Lonegan, 57, the former state director of Americans for Prosperity, a group advocating limited government that was founded by the billionaire Koch brothers, ran an aggressive campaign.

Yup, an actual Conservative. Not a snowball’s chance ... the media here decided Booker won back in late August.

Booker was forced off-message to explain G-rated correspondence with a stripper he met while filming a social media documentary.

Hey, maybe he really is Black after all. No, that’s not why. It’s merely that corruption and vice follow him around ... like white on rice.

But Booker painted him as a Tea Party extremist, one who would—if sent to Washington—make the capital’s gridlock worse.

You know what sucks rotten donkey balls? Even Fox News now labels the Tea Party as extremists. Not only can we not win, we can’t even get anywhere near a fair shake. The Tea Party people are merely traditional Constitutionalists. Not all of us are even Conservatives. We just paid a tiny bit of attention in school, so we know how America used to be, and how it’s supposed to be.  And isn’t any more. Limited government and fiscal sanity. And we want to see real - REAL - movement towards getting things back that way. You know, just in case we don’t want our great-grandchildren to be debt slaves to China. That makes us anti-education CO2 denying misogynistic nigger hanging Nazi granny rapers, don’t it? Just ask the news media. Or the pollsters ... I think I saw a poll the other day 34% of Americans think the Tea Party is a scarier threat than terrorism, communism, and a dead economy.

Just Sayin

I’m always happy to register new members as quick as I can (a week), or help old members with forgotten passwords or changed email addresses or whatever.

But please, if you think that maybe you joined BMEWS once upon a time, ask me. I can look your account up, even if you can only remember part of a user name or email address. I don’t keep any real personal information other than your first name, which not all accounts have. So I can’t actually find your old membership based on your actual name. But if you signed up with the handle “Zyborg 27” I can search even for “g 27” and find it. We don’t actually have a member with that tag though.

Not that I’m cranky if you by chance get to have two memberships here. But I’d rather keep it to one. That’s all. You can even change the name if you want something new, or I can do that if you can’t.

Now, is ANYONE with a membership having problems logging in? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?  Email me if you are; I will fix things within a couple days. Promise.

total capitulation

Boehner Goes Limp

Boehner says House will take up Senate budget plan

House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday that the House “absolutely” will take up the new Senate budget plan—even if he has to rely on mostly Democrats to pass it—and that he expects the partial government shutdown to end by Thursday.

Boehner made the comments in an interview with Cincinnati radio station WLW-AM.

“We fought the good fight. We just didn’t win,”
he said.

Boehner spoke as the Senate was preparing to vote on a recently struck bipartisan deal to end the partial government shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.

The Senate proposal would fund the government through Jan. 15, and raise the debt cap through Feb. 7.

The plan would not include any provision relating to the ObamaCare medical device tax, as prior plans did; instead it would include a single provision meant to verify the income of those receiving ObamaCare subsidies.

Pretty much what I expected to happen. Spineless weasels.

I’d say it was high time to push that old Reset Button, but at this point why bother? It’s too late.

Since initially demanding that ObamaCare be defunded as part of any budget deal, Republican leaders have scaled back those demands considerably. The boldest provision in the most recent House bill would have forced top government officials and lawmakers onto ObamaCare, without subsidies.

But the latest version was still too heavy-handed for Democrats, and too weak for conservatives. The final version only addressed income verification for subsidies.

That’s how our modern “centrist” compromise legislature works. The commies make some insane far-left proposal, the RINOS come back with a typical Democrat plan. The over-the-horizon Left screams, cries, stamps its feet, calls the GOP nasty names, and blames them for everything, including darkness at night. And the GOP just sits there sucking its thumb, not saying a word. And then they give in. Every. Damn. Time. It’s all Kabuki Theater, since one party just moves the goalposts more and more to the left, and the other party has no will to grasp the sword, ever.

And we lose. Again. Forever.

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Israel Stops Building Equipment Shipments Into Gaza

After 1.5 Mile Tunnel Found

Built With Previously Allowed Building Supplies

The title pretty much says it all, but here are the details ...

Israel has temporarily stopped allowing shipments of construction supplies to reach Gaza through Israeli territory, following the discovery late last week of a 2.5-kilometer (1.55-mile) tunnel built by Gaza terrorists into Israeli territory.

“Due to security reasons, (the army) decided to stop for now the transfer of building materials into Gaza,” Defense Ministry spokesman Guy Inbar told AFP. He did not say how long the ban would remain in force.

Last month Israel permitted delivery of cement and steel for use by the private sector into the Gaza Strip for the first time since 2007, when Israel banned their transfer fearing that Gaza’s Hamas rulers would use construction materials to fortify its positions and build tunnels for terrorist attacks on the Jewish state.

Israeli officials said on Sunday that a sophisticated tunnel running 450 meters into Israel and intended as a springboard for terrorist attacks had been uncovered by troops.

“This tunnel, which looks like the New York subway, is apparently intended to kidnap soldiers or for some other kind of terrorist attack,” Haim Yelin told army radio.

“It is impressively executed, with concrete supports,” he added.

Terrorists were apparently planning a large-scale infiltration and attack, and were possibly planning to bring Israeli civilians back to Gaza as captives.

Terrorists have made several attempts to kidnap Israelis in recent months, with the goal of exchanging captives for terrorists being held in Israeli prisons. A terror tunnel similar to that found Wednesday night was used in the 2006 kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, along with the killing of two other soldiers.

The terror tunnel that was exposed began in the Gaza town of Absan al-Zariz, located between the city of Khan Younis and the Gaza security fence. It extended for 2.5 kilometers (over 1.5 miles).

The tunnel had been packed with explosives at various points. Several offshoots had been dug leading off in various directions.

Abiola Olukemi Apara ….. WTF?  is that a name or a new disease?

Good grief .... is this another sign of National Health or a one off thing?

Abiola Olukemi Apara ?????  Huh? What kinda name is that or is it a disease we need to know about. Sheesh. Gone are the times foreigners with impossible names had the courtesy to Anglicize their names as our grandparents did. And nobody forced them to do it, they just had more brains and consideration for their host country and wanted to fit in.  No such animal as automatic rights.

Sorry but nobody with a name like that should should be hired prior to changing it to Jones or Smith. 
I wonder what her English is like.

Take a look.

Nurse ‘treated NHS colleague like a servant by forcing him to mow her lawn and take her to IKEA’

Abiola Apara allegedly made colleague do her chores and drive her around
Accused of refusing to speak to one worker for more than 4 months
Will appear before Nursing and Midwifery Council

By Anna Edwards

A nurse at an under-fire hospital has been accused of using an NHS staff member like her own personal servant - forcing them to drive her to IKEA and fix her leaking tap.

Abiola Olukemi Apara is accused of forcing a colleague at Basildon Hospital in Essex to mow her lawn, drive her to IKEA for a shopping trip, take her car for an MoT and even install a washing machine at her home.

The clinical support worker was also allegedly asked to install new lights, fix a leaking tap and put sealant around a bath at Apara’s home during a period between September 2004 and January 2007.

On Christmas Day 2005, Apara is even alleged to have instructed the same colleague to call in sick for his afternoon shift at the hospital so he could drive her to London and back.

The guy must be a wimp or an illegal or both.
I can’t imagine one of us, that is a white or black Brit or American, would put up with that treatment.  Assuming it’s all true.
Just defies logic someone would allow it.

And btw ...

This hosp. is under the gun due to: 
Read on.

A handful of other charges include inappropriately ignoring colleagues for a number of weeks and shouting at staff.

In one instance, believed to have occurred around July 2005, Apara is accused of ignoring a ward sister for five weeks and only communicating with her through notes left in the staff room.

On another occasion in late 2005, Apara is accused of shouting words to the effect of ‘you office now’ at a ward hostess then ignoring her for more than four months after the incident.

In another instance in March 2004 she is accused of ‘inappropriately asking a staff nurse, to provide a reference for her daughter, whom she had never met and did not know.

She is also accused of shouting at the same staff member in front of a patient she was washing

The misconduct charges are set to be heard when Apara appears in front of a Nursing and Midwifery Council panel in London next month.

Apara has since left Basildon Hospital.

The hospital has made national headlines after being slammed by inspectors for persistently high death rates and has since been paired with London’s Royal Free Hospital in a bid to improve standards.


Give us your tired and poor and incompetent. Oh wait, that’s us (USA) these sad days.  But still not so bad as here. Not yet anyway but then I’ve been away so long, how would I know?
I do know this and not saying that the ppl I personally spoke to (tried to that is) were bad folks. They tried to be helpful but every so often I had a hard time making out what they were trying to say. Wasn’t so bad that in the end I was lost.  I did finally understand. But it made me miss home and the desert all the more.

Good grief .... have to see to a leaky roof. Oh great. Got numbers and called and get no phone back. Hard to find someone who isn;t a traveller repair which means ur screwed. Sorry, off topic.

Thought yesterday was going to be mine to do as I wanted. Ha. Not even close. Still too much stuff to accomplish around here.

Bah, and we got skunked again at Greed League. Had our first Position Round last night. Played the same team as last week, and they utterly creamed us. Me, who ought to be the low average bowler on my team, bowled the high game for our side for the night, and that one -222- was only a point above the other team’s low game. Crivens. Simply no way these guys should be anywhere near us in the standings, considering they’re all 225 or better bowlers when the situation demands it. We aren’t; this season it looks like we’re 190 bowlers at best.

Position Rounds suck. I hate them. You do a round robin rotation, then you have a PR week. Problem is, when the league is small you have PR constantly. This league has 8 teams. Which means the rotation lasts only 7 weeks. And we have a 33 week season, with the last 2 weeks set aside for ... you guessed it, Position Rounds, although they call those the semi-finals and finals. So it looks like we’ll have - 31/7 = 4R3 - 4 Position Rounds during the regular season, which, given how quickly the standings stratify, implies we’ll play this same team up to 8 times more. Gak. This is just plain stupid when the league is small. IMO, if your league is small enough so that you get 3 or more rotations, forget PR altogether. Hell, I wouldn’t even bother with semi-finals or finals, unless they were real, like in normal sports. They aren’t real in bowling, they’re just a match up. Whoever comes out with more total points earned for the entire season is the one who gets the higher place. So why bother? Just do the rotation and call it done.

OK, time to flip the bacon, reheat the coffee, and see what’s in the news. Oh boy, another day of the DC Follies ... and I’m sure it’s all the Tea Party’s fault.

More outstanding work by DougM over at Sondra K’s blog ... this ought to be the official symbol for the Tea Party.

good news and bad news around the world and up your street

OK, I have some good and some bad news. Seriously. 

Lets see.  Maybe the good news first.

Very recently in the news was the happy sinking of a boatload of illegals in which 350 were drowned off the coast of Italy.
That was a welcome thumbs up. 

Within days another boat sank and 12 were reported drowned. Good.
Unfortunately, almost 200 were saved. Bad.

The good news to come out of that little episode was the death tally.

It wasn’t 12 drowned.
It was 30. Good.

Sadly however, here the really rotten bad news. Bad for Italy, bad for Europe and mostly bad for this country where most wanna be, so this is a triple bad.

Italy is going to triple patrols off its southern coast to avoid a repeat of the wonderful shipwrecks that drowned more than 360 would be immigrants.

We can only hope the Italians pursue that endeavor with the same dash and determination and derring do they exhibited in WW2, and as professionally as the captain of Costa Concordia more recently.  Maybe they’ll assign him to the job and he’ll patrol somewhere off the coast of Montana.
Yes, of course I know but maybe he won’t.

And speaking of news that ain’t so great.

The worst by far. This is awful.
The weepy eyed hand wringers with bleeding hearts at the European Union, are giving $39,784,805 to help settle the refugees of those boat that went under. 39 million dollars. Oh what the hell. Not their money and anyway ... easy come easy go.
Damn fools.

A tradition going back 184 years where all police officers working as a bobby on the beat, is coming to an end, with a radical overhaul of the dept.
I guess the mean streets have become too dangerous even for the cops.

BAD news for Christian newspapers in another part of the world. Well, not the end of the world but....
A Malaysian court has ruled that a Christian newspaper may not use the word “allah” to refer to god.  So expect to hear a bit of noise (possibly)
over minority rights in that mostly muslim country.  A three judge muslim panel declared that the word allah is not an integral part of the Christian faith so therefore non muslim papers can not use that word.

So I guess that islam and muslims at least in that country will now own the (c)allah rights. lol

Got one … pirate told to come make a movie, falls for it ,, arrested.

I don’t think I need say anything about this. The story speaks for itself.  Besides ... I think Drew will love this one and look forward to his usual pithy often scathing remarks.

Somali Pirate Captain Trapped With Promises Of Movie Stardom


BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgium has arrested the suspected leader of a Somali pirate group after luring him to Brussels with promises to make a documentary about his money-making life on the high seas, prosecutors said on Monday.

Mohamed Abdi Hassan, known as “Afweyne” or Big Mouth, was detained when he arrived at Brussels airport on Saturday with another suspect identified as Mohamed M. A. or “Tiiceey”, federal prosecutor Johan Delmulle told a news conference.

Tiiceey is a former governor of the Somali region of Himan and Heeb and is suspected in aiding Afweyne’s pirate organisation, Delmulle said.

Prosecutors said they decided to involve Belgian undercover agents after it became clear that an international arrest warrant would not be successful in capturing the men.

“After patiently starting a relationship of trust with Tiiceey, and through him with Afweyne, which took several months, both were prepared to participate in this (film) project,” Delmulle said.

The plan was put into action after two pirates were arrested and sentenced for the hijacking of a Belgian ship in 2009. Prosecutors decided to try to target the people behind the act, not only those who carried it out and so set up the sting.

“All too often those persons stay out of the frame and let others carry out their dirty business,” Delmulle added.

The prosecutor said Afweyne was asked via Tiiceey whether he would be prepared to be an adviser on a film about piracy, portraying his life carrying out hijackings off the East African coast and making millions of dollars from ransom payments.

Prosecutors said it took months to reel Afweyne in and persuade him to come to Brussels, but would not provide further details about how the sting was carried out.

Afweyne said in January he had put his pirate days behind him and retired. United Nations experts have accused a former Somalian president of shielding him by issuing him a diplomatic passport.

Risks from pirate operations decreased following a step-up in patrolling by an international coalition of warships and greater use of private security guards on merchant ships.

Pirate groups have moved the focus of kidnappings to onshore, taking foreign tourists and aid workers hostage in northern Kenya and Somalia.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
