How to Beat Your Wife

According to this story CLICK HERE Spanish Courts seem to have a real clue.
It seems ol` imam Mohamd Kamal Mustafa, wrote a book a few years ago called "Women in Islam" that instructs all good muslim husbands in the proper care and nurturing of their wives.
Is Fatima getting a little lippy? Then it`s...POW...five across the eyes. There is even instructions on how to beat her without leaving marks.
Apparently it`s OK to beat your wife as long as nobody else knows about it. I`m not sure how US courts would have dealt with this, I`m not even sure it would be a crime, but Spain thinks so and my hats off to them.
This is another article on the same topic CLICK HERE

Sprechen sie Deutsh?

Young people in Phrance are being encouraged to learn German and since they are such close friends, why not?
From Deutsche Welle
A new ad campaign in the Paris metro is aimed at getting more French kids interested in learning German. With German learning waning in France, politicians in Berlin and Paris fear it could be a spanner in the works for the countries' tight relations

The full story HERE
And another one HERE
Should we be looking forward to a new alliance between the 2 countries? Like the ones that work so well before WWI and WWII? Enquiring minds want to know.
Don`t get me wrong, I like Germany ( Not Phrance ). One of my best friends in the world is a sweet little German girl, and any country that can make girls like her can`t be all bad.
Plus I have this great link CLICK HERE Read it and see for yourself that the German government and some of its people don`t always see eye to eye.

Thanx go out to Carine from Pave France

Bush Is EEEEvil I tell ya

Bush Took My Job, Killed My Sons
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak my mind. I lost my job this past year. When Clinton was president I was secure and prosperous, but in the last year, we had to close our operations. We simply could not compete with foreign labor. This foreign labor worked for low pay under very bad conditions.

They worked very long shifts, and many even died on the job.

This competition could hardly be called "fair." I was forced out of the place where I had worked for 34 years.

Not a single government program was there to help me. How can Bush call himself "compassionate?" Far worse, I lost two of my sons in Bush's evil war in Iraq. They gave their lives for their country, and for what? So that Bush's oil buddies can get rich. My pain of losing my sons is indescribable.

While it is trivial next to the loss of my sons, I regret to say that I also lost my home. I simply have nothing left. How can Bush call himself a Christian when he neglects people like me? I am a senior citizen with various medical problems. I'm not in a position where I can begin a new career. I was reduced to the point where I had to live in a hole in a ground, all because of President Bush.

And when the authorities found me there, did they have any compassion for my misfortune and ailments? No, I was arrested. Mr. Bush, I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a compassionate man! I dare you to look me in the face and tell me you are a Christian! If I had any money left, I would donate it to the Democrat Party.

If Al Gore had been elected in 2000 I would still have a job, a home, and most importantly, my dear sons!

More Stuff

Here`s some good news for US and not so good news for THEM CLICK HERE it kind of renews my faith in our countrys youth.
What kind of messege does this CLICK HERE send about how to get things done in Washington, especially if you`ve got a powerful lobby?
Now something I`ve been waiting to hear. I`ve been commenting for quite a while (on other peoples blogs) that the US should continue to take the fight to the enemy, not just Afghanistan and Iraq. Terrorists are living and playing in countries that they feel secure in. One of their biggest bases is in Lebanon, so when I read this CLICK HERE I was encouraged.
Just so folks don`t think Iran is pulling one over on us I`ll add this link CLICK HERE It doesn`t go far enough for me, but it IS something.
That`s it for now. This blogging stuff ain`t as easy as I thunk it was going to be. Maybe it`s because I`d rather read blogs than write them, plus I`m a confirmed 2 finger typer. The Speedy Gonzales of the Keyboard I ain`t.
If I`m not surfing or playing CD games, when on the computer, I`m probably here CLICK HERE amassing my Vast Slave Empire, my handle is ESCHELON, stop in and say Hi.

Chopper Kill

This CLICK HERE is a 5mb, 1min, 10sec Media Player video of a graphic chopper attack at night. It`s not for the "quagmire in Iraq" crowd. I couldnt tell what the victims were up to but it looked like either attempted sabotage or setting up an ambush. Either way it looks like all they`re going to get are the 72 Plastic BlowUp Virgin Dolls.

Brrrrrr. It got cold last night, and I mean cold. Am I the only one who thinks so? It got all the way down to 62 degrees last night. The stray chickens and cats probably had to find shelter in this arctic cold. The winos had to bum more money, to buy more liquor, to thin their blood a little. The scorpions will probably be in a torpid state until spring rolls around (tommorow or the next day) and the temperatures get back in the 80s.
Yes I`m just teasing all the Yankees, and getting a pretty big kick out of it too! I know it`s cold up north, and a Yankee is anyone who lives above Boca Chica Key ( Mile Marker 8 ).
So AM I the only one who got cold ?
