It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Avast Ye Mateys!

Captain Richard Phillips is still being held hostage by Somali pirates. The Resident is doing a spectacular job of nothing at a rate of naught.

With all due respect, which would be none, what the fuck is so hard about ordering a rescue be undertaken before more pirate ships arrive with other hostages to be used as human shields?

Here's a fucking plan. Broadcast the sound of American sailors yelling, "Aargh," over loudspeakers a la Bush's Operation: Kidnap Noriega So He Doesn't Spill The Beans About Us Trafficking Coke Through the Panama Canal, until the pirates die of humiliation. It's better than the Cheater of the Free World jamming his thumb up his rear.

I wonder if the pirates are any good at football?

If that captain is killed in this so-called rescue operation, it will be Obama's head on a platter. He knows it, and that's why he's trying to down-play it and change the subject when he's asked about it. I think it's shameful that he hasn't said in public that his thoughts and prayers are with the family of the captain and that they are doing everything humanly possible to obtain his safe release.

Oh, and I left a peep show on my blog, Bad Habit (I's supposed to be a dead blog) take a look....and have a great weekend. I just couldn't resist it.

Miss ya, kiddo!

Nunly! I miss you too. I hope things are well for you, and you have a joyous Easter.

It's been theorized that he's keeping quiet so that this can be handled via back channels so their hostage's value does not go up. He has no plan, and is playing no roll in coordinating the intelligence agencies that should be executing a plan. Of course, he'll get all the credit from the leg tingling press.

Peeps, those sluts!
