In case you were wondering what to worry about today, here’s something: North Korea launched a missile in the middle night with a huge range – like they now have the capability to hit anywhere in the world. South Korea fired one back. The missile landed traveled about 1,000 kilometers before splashing down in the Sea of Japan, within Japan’s Economic Exclusion Zone. If that doesn’t sound good, it’s not.
Just saying in case your day was boring.
Another little tidbit that may aggravate your day is the new hijab Barbie doll. This was launched by Mattel, thinking that it is empowering arab women. In fact, it is doing the exact opposite.
Rather than reminding girls of a world of opportunities, the hijab reminds them of all the things they cannot do in many Muslim countries. These include decisions about their own lives and bodies. Let’s just say bleeding heart liberals have their own agenda and don’t give a hoot how it affects others, whom they consider ‘downtrodden’. Liberalism truly is an illness.
The NFL was once considered the most popular sports league in North America. How the mighty fall.
Support for this organization has steadily dwindled ever since Colin Kaepernick first knelt during the national anthem last season. Because the NFL is unable to make a decision on what to do about the kneel, the fans have made the decision for them.
They are staying away from the games in droves and not watching them on TV. Thanks to Twitter, fans took pictures of the stadiums over the Thanksgiving weekend. Pictures don’t lie and the stadiums were not full to say the least. We are guessing that Kaepernick isn’t going to be signed by a team any time soon. He’s just too much trouble.
As Royal watchers, we were very happy to see Prince Harry finally announce his engagement to Meghan Markle. Somehow, the death of his mother Diana when he was only eleven years old has always sat with us. We vividly recall him walking behind her casket, stone faced.
As well, his father is not the most empathic person to put it mildly and one wonders how many years he kept his emotions in check. There’s no doubt the did that because for a few years in his early twenties his behaviour was seriously out of control. He seems to have found himself and a wife.
We also could not help but remember that his uncle, King George abdicated the throne to marry the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson. Yes, the circumstances were different as his uncle was already King and Simpson was a rather unsavoury character. Markle was married before and will convert to Harry’s religion before the wedding. We can only hope that they will live, like a prince and princess, happily ever after.
Last Friday, with little fanfare and nobody really noticing, Pakistan released Hafiz Saeed, the mastermind of the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai. The main target of that terrorist attack was the Nariman House which housed the Chabad House.
This past Sunday, November 24, was the yahrzeit of Rabbi Gaby and Rivky Holzberg and six other who were brutally murdered in cold blood. It could not have been a coincidence that the mastermind was released two days before their yahrzeit. Saeed should be neutralized.
Here’s a prediction from Blanche. Remember when you read it: November 28, 2017. Michelle Obama could very well be the next presidential candidate for the Democrat party in 2020.
Unless someone is hiding under a rock, those vying for the run are, shall we say, less than less. Take Elizabeth Warren, aka Pocahontas. She took an ancestry test and it came back that she was 2% native American, ergo her nickname. But we digress.
Bernie Sanders is now in the lead and you can bet your last dollar that the Democrat party will move heaven and earth not to have him run. Warren is too nunish, Joe Biden is up there but he’s too associated with Obama. There’s a long string of unknowns which brings in Michelle my belle. Time will tell, but our prediction is that Michelle will be ‘convinced’ to run.
