Among the taller buildings in this rendering, looking south, are the Woolworth Building, far left; Barclay Tower, in shadow; 99 Church Street, a slender masonry building; 3 World Trade Center; 2 World Trade Center, with a steeply sloping roof; 7 World Trade Center, shorter tower in foreground; 1 World Trade Center or Freedom Tower, with its mast reaching 1,776 feet; American Express headquarters, with a shallow pyramidal roof; and Goldman Sachs headquarters, far right.

Less than a century after it soared heavenward as the world’s tallest building, the Woolworth Building — the icy Gothic pinnacle that generations of New Yorkers knew as the “Cathedral of Commerce” — will soon fall under the shadow of an 80-story next-door neighbor.
The new 912-foot tower at 99 Church Street, designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects for Silverstein Properties, will have a 175-room Four Seasons hotel on the first 22 floors and 143 condominium apartments in the floors above, managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. Larry A. Silverstein, the president and chief executive of Silverstein Properties, unveiled the design this morning.
Construction is to begin in June and be completed in 2011.
Not a moment too soon sweet friends.
While some complain that the modern architecture lacks the grandeur and majesty of some of the older and antiquated buildings, Lower Manhattan can surely use the boost.
Our skyline in lower Manhattan needs to be redefined. Some would prefer to see stone and lasting carvings instead of glass, some say the buildings are so clustered that they compete with one another rather than unify.
I’ll leave those arguments to the architectural aficionados.
Me?..I’m thrilled to be witnessing Americans “building” rather than IzlamoNazis “destroying.”
What say Y’all sweet friends?
There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
“God is the great mysterious motivator of what we call nature, and it has often been said by philosophers, that nature is the will of God. And I prefer to say that nature is the only body of God that we shall ever see.”
Frank Lloyd Wright
“Architecture is the will of an epoch translated into space.”
Mies van der Rohe
“Architecture is the art of how to waste space.”

Playing it soft and fuzzy just won’t do.
Maybe this time Israel has learned a lesson, that the world comes around to its side when it plays tough.
Derision happens when Israel goes whoring after peace. People hate a patsy.
Tough guys don’t dance (or give up territory).
The World Cheers When Israel Gets Tough
The usual suspects, like the United Nations, are of course blaming Israel for the Arab Palestinian stampede into
This time around, they couldn’t find the words to blame Israel.
But there have been surprising responses from sources not normally friendly to the Jewish State. Condoleezza Rice, at least for the moment, dropped her sympathies for the “poor” Pal-estinians, stating that, “The problem comes first and foremost out of the security situation by Ha-mas in Gaza.” (Those thousands of rockets onto Sderot and other southern Israeli towns.)
Speaking of those poor Palestinians, by the way, we hear that in less than two days these poor folk spent $130 million dollars on food and other purchases. Where did that money come from in a “refugee” environment? Some shopping spree – and it’s doubtful that Americans, the richest people on Earth, could spend so much money so quickly even during the Christmas rush.
Even the BBC had to admit (reluctantly) that the chaos in Gaza and the flight into Egypt was caused by Hamas. Ditto two British newspapers, the Independent and the Telegraph. This time around, they couldn’t find the words to blame Israel. Neither could the Chicago Tribune, which once published a horrific cartoon against Israel, but now editorialized that, “If the Palestinians stop lobbing rockets into Israel, there will be no retaliation.”
Haaretz, Israel’s newspaper of record for the far-left and the far gone, also approached the situation from Israel’s point of view.
All that because Israel finally woke up and showed some muscle.
Chutzpah invites admiration. When will they ever learn?
Well dudes and dudettes, the barn door has swuuuuung wide open and guess in which direction they’s galloping?
Palis pourin into Egypt.
Egypt don’t want their poor lil brethren, but we knew that already didn’t we.
If their Arab brothers and sistas were so dang sympathetic towards their cough cough, ” poor” fictitious Pali relatives, they would have welcomed them into their own vast, oil-rich nations decades ago.
Just like Israel did when she took in hundreds and thousands of Jews ceremoniously tossed out of ALL Arab lands.
But what does trusty ole Omelet do?
Instead of sealing up Gaza now that the Arabian horses have fled, he, um, promises more supplies to Gaza…..No, I’m not kidding.
In Israel, A-rabs vote in free elections..That’s right . They hold office. They are allowed to protest, and they do. They freely publish newspapers attacking the Israeli government.
A-rabs, incidentally can not do this in any other Muzlim state, except of course in the newly liberated Iraq. (Courtesy our troops)
Oh, did I mention that the A-rabs are even permitted to teach their stinkin revisionist history lessons in Israel. They teach vile hatred against Jews and Israelis and even receive subsidies for those ahem.. “lessons” from the self-loathing, politically correct Israeli government.
Every single so-called “Pal-estinian” college was created and funded by Israel. I kid you not.
There existed not one Pal-estinian college before 1967.
Israel and America mind you, need to stop taking orders from Condhimmi Rice, from the UN or anyone else who that thinks the (not so) “poor” Palis are the victims.
And lest we forget sweet friends……. On September 11, 2001 IzlamoNazi thug terrorists
hijacked our American airplanes; proceeded to crash them into several, highly symbolic buildings of ours.
Thousands of our friends, families and neighbors were burned in a brutal early death.
As y’all know, I was there for months, smelling the carnage and trying to find signs of precious life in the rubble.
The Izlamo monster, terrorists did not slaughter them and burn them alive for land nor for money.
They committed this heinous atrocity openly and brazenly in the name of Al-lah, in the name of their religion: Izlam.
What did some of us know bout Izlam prior to Sept 11. Perhaps not nearly as much as we should have.
What do we know now?
Muzlim leaders subject their citizens to live in abject poverty.
They practice apartheid against non-Muzlims.
They would treat their dogs better than women, but oops, they hate dogs too.
Go to Sawdi Arabia, the Magic Kingdom, Pakistan or Iran.
Ask for err…some detailed instruction on Izlam’s views on:
1) Voting rights for women
2) Arranged marriages for young girls
3) Job opportunities for women
The Palis and Muzlims violently oppose and defy nearly all of our cherished Western values and ideals.
All hate movements, which IzlamoNazism is– are distinguished by this very same thing: The Victim Dictum. Muzlims have taken a crash course (quite literally) in victimology.
They convince themselves as well as all the irrational, self hating Leftards, that they are a victimized, oppressed group at the hands of some other group.
Guess who that “other group” happens to be?
Jews and “The Evil West” of course.
Big and Little Satan. How quaint.
Nearly their entire “Holy book” is devoted to delegating the “ape and pig” in-fidels inferior status. They are called names of animals, blind, stupid and most definitely ignorant.
And FYI: There are no Ten Commandments in their “Holy Book”.
As a matter of fact there is no moral system whatsoever.
Unless you call allowing men to beat their wives, or sleep with children or their slaves “moral codes”.
There are no commandments or even insights as to how to behave properly or develop yourself as a spirtual human being. It may occasionally say “give to the poor” but quickly doubles back and expresses hostility toward success or wealth on this earth.
Nearly the entire book is comprised of verses not dealing with loving ones fellow man or moral disciplines but in dealing with filthy inf-idels, praising All-ah, and the Day of Judgment or Doom, however you wish to look at it.
Don’t take my word for it. If you can stomach all the venom, read it for yourself.
Our precious World Trade Center, the very symbol of American wealth and prosperity had to be brought crashing down. Literally.
Time to “saddle up” sweet friends.
If America and Israel don’t confront this “ideology” for what it essentially is, we may as well call in the Army of White Coats and issue tranquilizer guns and strait jackets for all.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.
Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.

Watch this video Dude.
Luv it! lol
The spot: A man sits on a couch watching TV. His roommate enters and sits down right next to him, practically knee-to-knee. The man shoots the roommate a look of disapproval. “Dude,” he says. The roommate moves over a cushion.
A series of similar vignettes ensue: The man asks for a hand with a bench press (“dude?”), discovers a forgotten jar of peanut butter (“dude!”), and confronts a colleague who taps his pencil incessantly (“dude …”).
Lastly, he reproves a friend for ordering what appears to be a flute of prosecco instead of a Bud Light. In this scene—as in all the ad’s scenes—the only word uttered is dude.
Save for a single Bud Light and the flash of a logo, there’s no mention of the product. Why, exactly, would this ad make me choose Bud Light over Miller Lite or the Silver Bullet?
Anheuser-Busch’s chief creative officer, told me that the dude ad is in the same mold as Budweiser’s successful “Wazzup” spots. Both campaigns, he said, pull a word or phrase from the popular vernacular and stamp it with the Bud brand.
The dude ads aren’t so much branding the word as offering a field guide to its many shades of meaning. By my count, the ads isolate at least six distinct usages:
The admonitory dude: the dude deployed when your buddy won’t stop humming “Umbrella” on a long car ride. As in, “Dude, enough.”
The interrogative dude: useful for ascertaining whether you’ve dropped a call. “Dude? Are you still there?”
The deflated dude: the dude of bad news. “Dude. Tom Brady’s wearing a boot.”
The exclamatory dude: the dude of good news. “Dude! Tom Brady is no longer wearing a boot!”
The sotto voce dude: for classified briefings. “Dude: Here comes that tall drink of water from accounting.”
The blissed-out dude: more accurately rendered as duhuhude. The dude issued upon rediscovering a long-lost Dead tape.
The dude conceit grabs your attention, but it’s the dude himself who raises this ad to the level of brilliance—and makes you want to watch it again. (Given the subtlety of the sell, repeat views are a good thing for Anheuser-Busch.)
I mean what is the whole point of advertising eh?
Did they “get ya”?
Who could forget the Wazzzzzzup guys?
The ‘Wazzup’ ads were all bout male bonding, a brotherhood, a camaraderie and friendship that could be expressed through one single (loooooooong) word.
Watch Superheros Waasssup.HERE…ha
What catches you about an ad.
Is it the phrasing?..The subliminal images?
Why is “Absolut” so absolutely successful?
Does the ad convey a clear message? Is it simple and to the point?
Does it offer some kind of underlying reasurance to the consumer?
Are the gags brilliant……or annoying?
Is the ad too predictable?
Did ya notice the ad, get the message, understand it perfectly, but just didn’t care.
Years, sometimes decades of research, my friends, and millions of investors’ dollars simply to develop an idea on how to market and advertise a “product.”
Ads that are “specific” are successful.
Were ya ever lyin in bed one night, itchin to snack on something. You finally drag yerself up and go to the fridge with no idea what your’e craving. You just shut the fridge..and do the same thing 5 minutes later eh. Unless your’e a certifiable couch potato..Then you probably didn’t even make it off the couch or outta bed in the first place. Ha.
But, if your mind focuses on “specifics”, (and details), such as that creamy, milky, sumptuous chocolate bar, you have in the cupboard and how it would taste just melting in your mouth………. That’ll get your lil self to the fridge or cupboard pronto. Mmmmmmmmmm.
Same as an ad. The more definite and precise, the more likely we are to want it.
Let’s be honest. They want our moneyyyy.
Advertisers try to remind us, the customers, about how their product can benefit or dramatically change our very lives.
Soooooo…….What’s in it for us?
Will it make me rich, thin, even more shallow?..lol
Will it make me smart, healthy, beautiful, able to fix my own water heater?
I don’t know bout y’all but I hate ads that inform, persuade, and remind me over and over again how indispensable their product is.
Dude. Now, that I can live with.

That’s how it works with McCarthyism. You pick a fight, demonize your opponents and identify them with a nasty enemy in order to shut them up.
That’s what the right-wing American Sen. Joseph McCarthy did to those who stood in his way in the early 1950s, smearing them as communists and traitors.
Today, we live with a reverse McCarthyism.
It started when the baby boomers crowded into universities.
They have not simply become the apostles of left-wing culture. Rather, they are the culture and, according to them, anyone who disagrees with their ideas is a warmonger, hates the poor, opposes social justice. Their New McCarthyism is actually McCarthyism in reverse.
They declare themselves the “environmentalists,” “pacifists,” “progressives,” “reformists,” “democrats,” fighting for peace, defending the poor from the rich, the “ethnics” from the “racists” and the planet from everything — from pandemics to pollution.
But they never tell us what to do in any detail, only that those who disagree with them are “capitalists,” “warmongers,” “racists” and “deniers.”
They tell us to “celebrate our differences” but that we can never identify what those differences are, much less criticize any of them.
Do that and you’re a “racist,” guilty of “ethnic profiling.”
I hope we regain the ability to debate issues openly and honestly, to not have to choose between “Bush and bin Laden.”
C’mon you just can’t help but take notice of how left-wing moonbats tee off with the same, predictable rants, no matter how illogical or flat out insane they are.
Mocking our fallen soldiers:
In this wondrous age of technological progress, wouldn’t it just be dreamy if someone could create a logic engine that could immediately convert the Leftard spews and rants into rational thinking.
Just imagine if the Dhimmicrats really do get power, my friends.
The Marines will no longer be allowed to kill the ones of terror, bombin Iranian nukes will be outta the question.
Our government will now be colluding with the Hezbullies, the kook in Venzoolala, and EichmandinJeehad.
The drug dealers in Mexico will be our best friends.
The commie of China will be on our schedule for a play date. Thug Hugging Day.
Al Goraholic will pen a new Constitution (on one sheet of toilet paper), and how much ya wanna to bet he’ll will model it after good ole Shaaaaaaariah Law huh.
Inna mean time…………
Europe and the Mid-East are still smolderin daily from bombs, car swarms and random suicide/homicide bombs, courtesy: The Junior Varsity Jeehad, that the Leftists are in such deep denial about.
Despite the front row seat we all had on Sept11, the bombings in England, Bali, Spain, daily clashes of “civilizations” (make that civilization versus barbarians) in Israel, rapes in Sweden, infi-del killings in Turkey, honor killings in the US, Europe and worldwide, —the moonbats still insist the IzlamoNazis are creampuffs and a racist, imagined threat. Uh huh.
Of course the sad joke is that the lefty terrorist lovers will be the first ones beheaded.
Wonder if they will think more clearly minus their useless brains.
You know I’ll betcha that if leftard moonbat had been on one the hijacked planes, he would prolly think that he would have been given a pretty red, white and blue parachute and allowed to bail over the city of his choice. I mean, after all, they are on the same team as the terrorists ..and hey.. America was asking for it anyway ..weren’t they?
Lemme tell ya.
These defeatist, traitorous Leftist, socialist and dictator loving Dhiimicrats aren’t fit to tie the shoes of our brave soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Join the Army, travel to distant, exotic places, meet vicious, mudering IzlamoNazis, then surrender”
Sorry Leftards. Some of us won’t stand by and allow y’all to suck the air out of any remaining sails the sane, traditionalist America loving Nation actually has.
If your’e not scared, then your’e not paying attention.
Clue for the terrorist lovin Lefties:
Civilizations die from suicide, not by murder.

That’s sooooooo me. Ha.
All you have to do is flip on the tube and put out some chips, right? Sure, if you don’t mind watching the Big Game by your lonesome. Here’s how to make your party one your friends will never avoid … or forget.
How to Throw the Perfect Super Bowl Party
Essential 1: The Tube
If you’ve been looking to upgrade that outdated TV, now is the perfect time, since even a 52-point Patriots drubbing looks great in big-screen HD. Want to watch the players in life-size proportions but not ready to shell out big bucks? Consider a projector….
Essential 2: The Theater
There’s undoubtedly a side of you (or your spouse) that will be psyched to make cute decorations, cleverly color-coded to one or both of the teams participating in this year’s game. Find that side of you, drag it out back, and shoot it like a rabid dog. This is the Super Bowl.
The only decorating allowed is moving all the furniture closer to the TV, stashing all the breakables, and strategically placing rolls of paper towels to keep damage to a minimum.
Essential 3: The People
This isn’t a formal dinner party, so don’t limit your guest list: The surest death sentence for your shindig is not having enough people to get a noise complaint from your cranky neighbor…
Make sure to invite at least one male friend who knows absolutely nothing about football. Just trust us on this one. At some point in the doldrums of a late third quarter coach’s challenge, his completely inane questions about holding penalties, blitz packages, or why the players all hug before every play will be the highlight of the whole party.
Essential 4: The Grub
Keep your main course simple and handheld (think burgers, pizza, sausages) and save it for the guaranteed worst part of the entire broadcast: the halftime show. As for drinks, cocktails and a Super Bowl party fit together like diabetics and a Twinkie factory — there’s no acceptable beverage but beer (the only nondrinkers in the room should be pregnant).
Essential 5: The Gambling
As much as we all wish otherwise, the game is inevitably an overhyped blowout that doesn’t measure up to the multimillion-dollar advertisements supporting it. To keep things interesting, you need money on the line, either by simply betting on who’ll win or by setting up a more elaborate pool.
Essential 6: Cleaning Up
Yeah, have fun with that.
Goooooooooo Giants! heh
Ah Football: So, what’s the good. What’s the bad sweet friends?
Relegating women to se-x selling, demeaning “cheerleaders”?…Shame on a culture that continues to legitimize objectification of womens’ bodies.Pfft.
The extremo fanaticism.
Poorly behaved fans cussin and spillin bear on unsuspecting fellow fans. Boo.
The oftentimes uncontrollable gambling.
The violence. Ouch.
It’s ability to turn totally functional dudes into complete androids during Football season. Heh.
The all American, good , clean fun. (without taking into account the dementia many players suffer later in life..oh wait…that’s bad..oops)
The ticket out of poverty for the gifted players that are “discovered.”
The unity of bonded together neighbors and perfect strangers.
And………Last but not least: The excuse for the Super Bowl Partay!
By the way who ever said Football wasn’t funny?
What say’ y’all?
Good, bad, or a lil of both?
Football is, after all, a wonderful way to get rid of your aggressions without going to jail for it.
Heywood Hale Brown
You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four.
Football is not a contact sport. It’s a collision sport. Dancing is a good example of a contact sport.
I have seen women walk right past a TV set with a football game on and – this always amazes me – not stop to watch, even if the TV is showing replays of what we call a “good hit,” which is a tackle that causes at least one major internal organ to actually fly out of a player’s body.

As the United Nations Security Council debated a response to the situation in the Gaza Strip and Sderot, Israel’s New York Consulate held a protest in front of UN headquarters on Thursday, in which they placed 4,200 red balloons on the UN’s doorstep. The number of balloons signified the 4,200 Kassam rockets fired into Israel from Gaza since the 2005 disengagement from the Strip.
Meanwhile, as the New York Consulate was staging the protest, five rockets were fired from Gaza into the western Negev.
EXPECTING FAIRNESS FROM U.N.?
Yea. When pigs fly my friends.
Let me wrap my miniscule mind round this one:
Kassams are killing and maiming Jews daily, and we protest with balloons at the UN?
Israeli civilians hiding from katyushas:
Rockets that killed babies…….versus………..red, shiney birthday balloons.
This musta been concocted by some peace loving left wing moonbat. You know the kind who make it a point to never realize anything until they actually see the drain circling overhead.
Dang, reminds me of that annoying tune 99 Red Balloons.
Remember the one they sang with a German accent: Luftballoons.
Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it’s red alert
There’s something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by..
Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It’s all over, and I’m standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go
Well, there are 4,200 “souvenirs”…………
The hate mongering, ungrateful A-rabs have been calling for the destruction of Israel for over 60 years. Their battle cry is to drive all of Israel and the Israelis into the sea. Has Israel once……..ever officially threatened to kill all the Pal-estinians? Ever?
No. It’s too dang busy mainaining a democratic government (with A-rabs in the Knesset) and building a word-class economy despite the exorbitant amounts of money they have to spend on defense, protecting their own men,women and children.
Why didn’t they just include some white flags… and olive branches while they were at it………..or were the balloons symbolic of all the “hot air” ole Omelet and the rest of the government has been expelling as of late?
Better yet they could have played the traditional childrens “balloon tune”: Ham-ASS style.
This is the way we blow our
balloon… Americans in the World Trade Center.(Now, pretend to blow up a balloon, an American)
We blow! (now………hold your hands out as the
balloon ..bomb gets bigger)
And blow! (now……..hold hands farther apart)
And blow! (now………..hold hands even farther apart)
And blow! (now…………spread hands out really big)
This is the way we break our
POP! (clap your hands loudly)
And the bomb goes off.
Bali, Spain, England, America, Israel, Thailand………..
If you got the place…we’ve got the bomb.
Or how bout this fave:
Sung to the tune of “The Mulberry Bush.”
This is the way we blow up the
balloon JEW. (act like you are blowing up a balloon)
Blow up the
Blow up the
This is the way we blow up the
Library. city square.
Um…What’s with the PR stunts dudes.
Dontcha think it’s half past time y’all started acting like it’s a WAR.
This is called using our bravado and brawn? Balloons.
Howzabout hanging 4,200 posters of explosions in homes and kindergarden classes caused by the Pali’s bloody kassams.
Childrens’ fingers blown off, parents permanently scarred and crippled.
Put that in your dang balloon eh.
Or……….2,996 images of the lost…but never forgotten.
Sure, Ham-ASS would use balloons to make a point too, provided they were first filled some toxic gas which would explode as soon as the first innocent American or Israeli toddler picked it up.
Oh, and FYI, There wouldn’t be enough balloons in the Universe to symbolize the number of rockets and bombs the bloody Pseudo-stinians and Lebneeze toss at Israel daily.
This truly shows the difference between a Jew.. and his neighboring Arab.
Perhaps they got confused and started celebratin an early Valentines Day eh.
Oh and by the way:
Trix are for kids………..and balloons…………
Balloons are for parties dudes.
Open Trackbacks all weekend!
Leave a trackback of your best post for others to read.
All I request is that you return the favor by linking the article you wish to share …..to this post. Thanks!
And for my non-bloggin friends…feel free to mosey around and put your 2 cents in my comments and drop your pearls o’ widsom..Heh.
Chief executives of big companies and public sector organisations are coping with their stressful positions by drinking the equivalent of almost three bottles of wine a week, new research shows.
The more successful you are, the more you drink
Men holding the highest positions drink an average of almost 23 units a week – more than 11 medium (175ml) glasses of wine.
Their consumption exceeds the total recommended weekly limit for alcohol of 21 units and suggests many businessmen and managers may suffer ill health as a result.
Home was the most popular place for people to drink, with half of the population having drunk there in the past week.
I’ll have sweet red wine please……..Mmmmmmmmmm.
Seems like it’s all about the “stress” eh.
Stress sets in motion our adaptive responses. The body gathers together its forces to confront a threat and, more often than not, – does a good job of protecting us.
When we are exposed to stress, it disturbs the body’s internal balance , otherwise known as “homeostasis”.
When the stressful trigger is over, the body can regain its normal equilibrium. It can, however, become stuck in an overly aroused or under-aroused state.
Our immune systems are controlled by our nervous system. By circulating hormones, chronic stress suppresses the ability of our immune system to do its job.
Soooooo…….How do you deal with stress?
By reaching for a beer, a piece of chocolate, a cigarette?
Do you do a run, take a walk, head to the gym and pump some iron?
If the more successful you are, the more you drink…………………..is all that “success” really worth it in the end?..Hmmm.
Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
The first thing in the human personality that dissolves in alcohol is dignity.
If you know someone who tries to drown their sorrows, you might tell them sorrows know how to swim.
Jackson Brown, Jr.
One reason I don’t drink is that I want to know when I am having a good time.
Your body is a temple, but keep the spirits on the outside.
It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile, and one nut to scatter it all over the road.
What say y’all sweet friends.
Do you drink when your’e stressed out?
Do you think it’s the stress of success causing the drinking…….or perhaps something entirely different……….

Lines that ought to be jokes..but are dead serious.
Angel’s first prize goes to:
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
Here’s his little “gem”:
“We shall continue fighting Jih-ad, Ham-as and their allies with determination and without mercy.”
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert lauded the IDF Thursday for its operations against Qassam cells in Gaza, and vowed to continue fighting terror.
Olmert stressed that Israel was not interested in hurting the residents of the Gaza Strip, but that it could no longer put up with the incessant Qassam fire.
So lesse now……….the indiscriminate giveaway of Israeli land in Gaza and the West Bank to terrorists is called “fighting terror”?
1-Expelling Israelis from their homes in Amona, razing their structures, bulldozing their land……….
That’s called “fighting terror”?
Amona evacuated; hundreds hurt
The evacuation degenerated into a violent confrontation between thousands of settlers and thousands of soldiers and police officers. By early afternoon hours, 200 people were reported to have sustained injuries, including 80 members of the security forces, most of them police officers. ”
2-The beating and bludgeoning of fellow Israelis by Israeli police, in the name of the enemy….
That’s called battling fanatic, maniacal killers?
3-Expelling families from Gush Katif.
That’s called struggling against Ar-ab and Muzlim brutality?
4-The recurring release of thousands upon thousands of Pale-stinians and Hezbully terrorist, vicious, mass-murderers from Israeli prisons.
That’s called combatting incensed radicals?
5-Handin over Syria and the Golan Heights………..
6-Welcoming kassams with open arms…
….no, not those kind of arms.
7-Carving up the Holy City of Jerusalem and offering it to your executioner on a gold platter.
That’s called slaying your would be slaughterers?
Ole Omelet said:
‘”Without compromise, without concessions and without mercy.”
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert warned that Israel won’t stand for the relentless salvos and vowed to strike at Pal-estinian militants ”without compromise, without concessions and without mercy.”
Olmert says militants will be attacked `without mercy’
President Bush said:
“It is clear that the future of freedom and peace depend on the actions of America. This nation is freedom’s home, and freedom’s defender. We welcome this charge of history, and we are keeping it.
The war on terror continues. The enemies of freedom are not idle, and neither are we. This country will not rest, we will not stop, we will not tire, until this danger to civilization is removed. ” Westin Convention Center Hotel, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Try puttin your money where your mouth is..instead of in the hands of our killers.
Better yet………Why don’t they both sign a document in favor of

Novice Users: people who are afraid that simply pressing a key might break their computer.
Intermediate Users: people who don’t know how to fix their computer after they’ve just pressed a key that broke it.
Expert Users: people who break other people’s computers.
“Press CTRL-ALT-DEL,– now for an IQ test.”
“Smith & Wesson — the original point and click interface.”
“That’s what’s cool about working with computers. They don’t argue, they remember everything, and they don’t drink all your beer.”
“If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside.”

“Just remember: you’re not a ‘dummy,’ no matter what those computer books claim. The real dummies are the people who–though technically expert–couldn’t design hardware and software that’s usable by normal consumers if their lives depended upon it.”
