Obama literally made a deal with the devil. Not only that, but the ruler of Iran has basically spit in Obama’s face and he thinks it’s raining on him. One wonders exactly how dense he really is.
The supreme leader of Iran, Khamenei, addressed Israel this past week and said, “You will not see next 25 years,” adding that the Jewish state will be hounded until it is destroyed. The quote came against a backdrop of a photograph apparently showing the Iranian leader walking on an Israeli flag painted on a sidewalk.
In case that wasn’t enough for you, Khamenei also reaffirmed his view that the US is a “Great Satan” and that there would be no detente with Washington beyond the nuclear talks: “We approved talks with the United States about [the] nuclear issue specifically. We have not allowed talks with the US in other fields and we [do] not negotiate with them.”
What exactly Obama seems to think this deal will bring him goes beyond the pale of intelligent thinking. He is obviously looking to the future and his ‘legacy’ coupled with the millions of dollars he expects to make when he leaves office based largely on this deal.
May we suggest that instead of leaving a legacy, he will be leaving his country, Israel and the rest of the world the seeds that will, G-d forbid, bring the world to its knees under Iranian totalitarian regime. What a fool.
Queen Elizabeth has reached a milestone as the long reigning Queen in British history at 63 years and seven months. She has outlasted 12 Prime Ministers. Here are some other interesting tidbits: She has owned more than 30 corgis during her reign. She has visited Canada 22 times. She has answered more than three and a half million items of correspondence during her time as monarch. She has about 25 horses in training for each racing season. British prime ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron were both born during her reign. In an average year, she hosts more than 50,000 guests at Buckingham Palace. She keeps calm and carries on.
We find it hard to cheer on the Toronto Blue Jays who, at the moment, are the best team in eastern division of the American league. Can’t quite answer why, but somehow rooting for a team in TO just doesn’t cut it.
In case you were wondering what the quebec separatist party is up to, wonder no more. They are creating a school for separatists. Yes Blanche, if you want to drink the koolaid and learn the party line off by heart, the leader of that party – PKP is going to give you a venue to do so. He wants the faithful to be able to talk to their friends and relatives about how wonderful our lives will be when they get their own country.
He will tell them that we will have our own army, that we won’t have to pay any more federal taxes, that we will be just fine without the $9 billion transfer payments from the other provinces and that yes, they will take the money from the feds for the new Champlain bridge, which will no doubt be renamed after a very famous separatist.
We suggest the following: a mole in the school. That way everyone will know what’s going on and will be able to open the anti-separatist school using the same techniques but in reverse. Anyone game?
Stephen Harper best be pulling his socks up and get in the campaign game or he’s going to be very well done toast and we will have either a tree-hugging government or one run by the very pretty son of an ex-prime minister. As of now, all Harper has been doing is putting out fires which has left him no time to get his message out. And speaking of messages, what is his message?
If he says vote for me because I’ve been there a long time, he’s going to have to find himself a new home in October. He needs a solid platform with fresh ideas. If he can’t come up with that then he’s tired and should have stepped aside to allow someone else to run. Too late for that now. All us plebs can do is sit back and watch the show.
Here’s something creepy. The new iPhones will be set by default to automatically record a constant stream of sound and video whenever the camera app is in use, without the user pressing the shutter button and even if the camera isn’t set to take video.
In other words, people will be recorded whether they like it or not when you are taking one silly picture. Imagine if someone nearby is saying something they didn’t want you or anyone else to hear? Apple has rejected the basic concept of photography, the photographer’s decision to capture a single image in time and imposed this on you. Could be for our next phone we will be searching out companies less invasive and know-it-all. Seriously.
Good Shabbos. May we all be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life for a sweet, happy and healthy New Year.
