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

Shabbat Shalom

It's Friday. It hasn't been a bad week personally, went by pretty fast which is always good.

Okay, so we had to watch the Resident further abdicate his responsibility to the world community vis a vis Iran, and saw the Iranian response in the form of a missile test launch that puts Israel, and parts of Europe in range of their either soon to be or secretly existent nuclear weapon. The virtual silence from the White House was really impressive, reminiscent in many ways of the last chief executive's impotence regarding North Korea.

Honestly, I have always expected that Pampers would not miss an opportunity to screw Israel, but his inability to step up on behalf of Arabs, the de facto leader of whom he bowed before during the G20 conference, comes as a real surprise. Looks like even that act of subservience was insincere in light of the fact that he is going to let the Saudis piss in the wind along with Israel, Jordan, Egypt, and the Persian Gulf states. I think I speak for a good portion of Planet Earth when I say we are not impressed.

There's a lot of other crap going on that others are writing about out here, but it's Kabbalat Shabbat and frankly it's time for crap to be set aside. So instead, shirah; soothing sounds to salve the soul.

It's only castles burning...

The levels on the audio on this one aren't so hot, but with decent speakers you can get the drift.
Whatever may be said about Stephen, he fucking rocks.

The Fat Man and the Big Man. This about sums it up.

He is plainly incompetent . I happened to watch some of the campaign on videos , where he was making promises and telling people what he was going to do about health care and this that and the other thing, and as bad as as it was to see when it was happeneing, Thise videos are excruciatingly embarrassing now, especially to think that anyone could have been taken in by him; and his so obviously puerile lack of understanding of the very basic knowledge of any of the issues of which he was speaking. The only more embarrassing thing I observed in those videos, is his narcissistic and overweening confidence in his own abilities, and his unabashed selling of himself .

I do not know whether to laugh or cry at the fact that almost the entire congress just told him to get a PLAN for Gitmo before we give you any money . I wish they had done that with the bail out money for the banks, but then their own re- election was not so blatantly at stake.
