Hi readers. Thanks for the visit.
Probably most of you have noticed the US has become an asylum. What the hell. I suppose it’s to be expected. This morning I perused Yahoo News long enough to discover Israeli soldiers beat a Palestinian Minister to death because he was protesting the latest US sponsored land grab Israel’s been doing since the summer slaughter at Gaza. They’ve gobbled up a lot more territory on the West Bank, as well as in the half of Jerusalem they don’t own.
Nothing new there except me pointing out it’s the US sponsoring it all by sending them all those billions of dollars and megatons of weaponry. So you and I are complicit in the slaughter, robbing and rape of Palestine by Israel.
However, what really surprised me is the uproar defending torture of prisoners and holding them without due process of any kind for years, decades. It’s taken as an opportunity for self-celebration by news announcers. “America is awesome!” trumps “Jesus H. Christ! We need to quit torturing people and provide them with due process or we’re leaving ourselves open for a royal screwing!”
Yep, welcome to the asylum.
Jeanne told me about a news item – they’ve found ruins and written documents in Massachusetts, she says, authenticating a Muslim settlement 500 years before Columbus. I’ll be interested in chasing that down, but the strong man for Turkey made a news release sometime in the 1990s making a similar claim. Evidently Columbus made an observation somewhere in his writings that they’d found a Mosque in Cuba.
Heck, probably they were the shock troops over here looking for something to blow up but got here ahead of schedule. Makes sense to me.
I hope that last bit doesn’t give Israel any ideas based on the Hebrew writings on Hidden Mesa dating back so far it took modern scholars to identify precisely what they were and said. Next thing you know the Israeli army will be bombing schools and hospitals in Albuquerque preparatory to sending settlers to New Mexico because ‘they owned it once’.
Might as well. Hell with Congress and so much of the government already being dual-citizenship Israeli they’d probably end up owning it again.
But that’s life in an asylum.
