Ed Morrissey: Goodbye Dingy Harry and Good Riddance

By any objective measure, Reid has been a blight on the Senate and on Congress. He declared the Iraq war "lost" while Americans were still fighting there, and he derailed a budget process that had worked well before his ascent into leadership. He stripped the Senate of one of its debate functions after sabotaging the amendment process, and nearly destroyed regular order. On top of that, Reid used his post to commit McCarthyite character assassination of Mitt Romney, claiming to have inside knowledge that Romney hadn't paid taxes in ten years, a smear that turned out to be utterly false. He has been a malevolent force for years in American politics, and nothing he did in Washington will improve the place as much as his leaving it.

Goodbye, Harry, and good riddance.

And even Buzzfeed isn't sorry to see Reid finally gone: Harry Reid: The Senate Institutionalist Who Burned Down The Institution

Everyone Knows That AKs Are Totally Inaccurate and Fit Only For Spray-and-Pray Peasant Armies

Right?

"Instead of sex in the city, I found depressed, beaten men - cautious and passive around women. They were, in other words, products of Ivy League universities."

Or exactly as society and the modern educational system have taught, conditioned, and punished them into being.

Before children get a chance to grow up and discover sex for themselves, the state will step in and enter their heads and their bedrooms. Consent classes will teach them that relationships should proceed in a particular way and that the decision to have sex with someone should be subject to explicit and ongoing negotiations. Much as the babies in Brave New World are conditioned to reject flowers and nature, children are to be taught that when it comes to sex, passion and spontaneity are dangerous. They'll be taught that sex without formal consent is abuse and as such, boys are potential rapists and girls are victims-in-waiting. By establishing associations between sex and rape, relationships and abuse, children will be taught to fear intimacy.

The BBC Alone is Responsible For More Than 10% of all British Crimes

The BBC is responsible for more than one in 10 criminal prosecutions. Culture Secretary Sajid Javid reports that 10% of magistrate court cases are for non-payment of the BBC licence fee. Non-payment is a criminal offence, punishable by a fine of up to £1,000. Every week about 3,000 people are fined for non-payment, and about one person a week is jailed for non-payment of the fine. Women make up about 70% of those prosecuted and convicted, and half of those jailed for not paying the fine. When people fail to pay other utilities, such as energy companies, they are guilty of a civil offence, not a criminal one, and they cannot be prosecuted and fined for falling behind with their payments. Civil action can be taken for recovery, but without fines and jail terms.

Albino Body Parts

"The United Nations human rights office reports political action is growing in Tanzania, Malawi, and Burundi to clamp down on the horrific trade in albino body parts. While welcoming these moves, the agency says much work and commitment will be needed to stop the trade and protect the people being maimed and killed."

I sense an opportunity for some arbitrage given the availability of pasty white body parts in most American cities. Cause I can get you a white toe.

Then use the EPA to implement it. The administrators of which are claiming to have the power to do.

Posted by: mynewhandle at March 31, 2015 05:15 PM (AkOaV)

92 What drives me especially crazy about the BBC is, *outside* of the UK, they operate like just another major TV production house.

105 "Nothing says terror like 20mm or even 30 mm cannons firing upward at a 30 degree angle as the Nachtjager flies underneath the bomber stream." I think often about that era when I think of the modern global warming panic. Freeman Dyson, a notable climate-change skeptic today, learned fairly early on regarding government officialdom and their confident statements. Dyson was detailed out to Bomber Command in the UK as a boffin doing mathematical and statistical analyses in what was then termed "operations research". There were successes in this field during the war, in combatant commands where the higher-ups listened attentively to the OR reports, but not so much at Bomber Command. Looking at aircrew loss rates from missions over occupied Europe, Dyson quickly figured out that the belly hatch of the Lancaster bomber, through which half the aircrew were expected to bail out from a stricken aircraft hit by flak, had simply too small a cross-section to allow a man in bulky night high weather flying gear, plus parachute, to get out quickly. RAF airmen were getting stuck in the hatch, and blocking the hopes of exit of their mates behind them. Lethally for all. No one wanted to hear Dyson's ideas or his inexpensive fix of simply installing an enlarged hatch on the assembly line. Doctrine was doctrine! The bombers were the best available! Victory impended! As night after night, men died for no good reason, falling out of the cold dark sky, trapped in plummeting aircraft.

216 So I thought (in back of my head, 50/50 chance) I had a daughter. It has been consuming me for maybe a year at least, so last night I go looking for pics of her, find one that seems like me in the mouth. Then I find her "stepfather's" pic, and it is uncanny how much my apparently non-daughter favors him.  It is sad, but prob for the best.

Another possible, Jimi Hendrix.

The NRA is a single issue organization.  That is why they have been successful in achieving their objectives.

John Lennon. He was drifting right and had expressed some appreciation for Reagan. Posted by: Blanco Basura at March 31, 2015 11:02 PM (UVfht) John Lennon, of all people. Yep, I agree. He was a smart guy, and I'm sure he'd had plenty of experience with smug, phony leftists in the music industry. He was always something of an iconoclast, and once the left became the "establishment", he would have let fly at them. There was some discussion here a few days ago that he and Reagan met in the booth at a Monday Night Football game and apparently hit it off.

454 Guess what dickwads? Simony is a secular crime in France. "In the Corpus Juris Canonici the Decretum[5] and the Decretals[6] deal with the subject. The offender whether simoniacus (one who had bought his orders) or simoniace promotus (one who had bought his promotion), was liable to deprivation of his benefice and deposition from orders if a secular priest, or to confinement in a stricter monastery if a regular. No distinction seems to have been drawn between the sale of an immediate and of a reversionary interest. The innocent simoniace promotus was, apart from dispensation, liable to the same penalties as though he were guilty."

Posted by: Ricardo Kill at March 31, 2015 11:05 PM (xmzki) The NRA has always made it a policy to support politicians that are "Pro-2A" regardless of party. They did so because they didn't want to be painted as being for only 1 party. It served them well for many years, but the last 10-15 not so well. They need to face the facts that Dems are all anti-gun in deed no matter what they say in words.

545 While we're on the topic, I linked this outstanding Weekly Standard article last night. I didn't see anyone comment on it, but it is definitely worth a read. AWOL from the Summer of Love https://tinyurl.com/nudk9z5 In 1966, Bob Dylan was a superstar. He was making groundbreaking rock music, the likes of which no one had ever heard before. Then he had a motorcycle accident and dropped off the face of the earth. Meanwhile, other rock musicians went on to create psychedelic music and acid rock. In 1967, Dylan got together with some friends, and recorded some music privately that was never intended to be released to the public. They explored folk, blues, country, and gospel styles, and created a new synthesis. Their music had nothing whatsoever to do with the psychedelic music that was popular at the time. But aside from one mumbled aside about burning draft cards, nowhere in the hours of recordings Dylan made with The Band is there the slightest mention of the concerns of the 1960s - peace, race, revolution, psychedelia. Their collective secession from the fuss of the sixties astonished the English guitarist Eric Clapton when he went to visit them: "It became quite obvious to me I was on a different planet to these guys," Clapton recalled in a 2004 interview. "I had an Afghan jacket and curly hair and pink trousers. They looked like The Hole in the Wall Gang." I can't read Dylan's mind, so I can't say whether he is a conservative or not. It's certainly possible that he doesn't pay much attention to politics. But if I were a betting man, that's how I would bet. I am quite certain that he is not a leftist.

560 412, Vendette. Here is how you stop the NRA junk mail. Pay attention, and use the EXACT instructions and wording I'm going to post here. 1. Call the membership desk, over and over again, till you get an English speaking, U.S. based representative. 2. Tell them you want your membership to be CODED as "NO PROMOTIONS". 3. Have them read your instructions back to you, and have them confirm after a screen update, that your membership has now been so coded in the system. The effects will show in about 45/60 days. The junk mail will fall off to nothing, and the annoying calls will cease altogether. Hope that helps ya! Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

575 After Snowden's revelations, Swann's thinking changed. The NSA's tactics, which include retaining data from American citizens, raise too many questions in his mind: "I can't see myself working there," he says, "partially because of these moral reasons."

This year, the NSA needs to find 1,600 recruits. Hundreds of them must come from highly specialized fields like computer science and mathematics. So far, it says, the agency has been successful. But with its popularity down, and pay from wealthy Silicon Valley companies way up, agency officials concede that recruitment is a worry. If enough students follow Daniel Swann, then one of the world's most powerful spy agencies could lose its edge.

If they just support Republicans, they become like conservative voters.  The Republicans would treat them the same way Democrats treat black voters.  They will say stuff to get them all worked up but once they are elected, they will betray them whenever it is convenient because they know that they are a dependable voting block.



That is why Ace's proposal to identify a half dozen or so of the worst squish RINO Congressmen in red districts should be targeted every election for defeat, first in primaries and then in the general election is a winning strategy.  Congressmen will work hard to stay off that list.

For all of their supporting Dems who were not conservatives on non-RKBA matters, they have none-the-less done more to expand liberty than any purist organizations. To put it bluntly, a "pure" organization harms liberty, while the NRA and other pro-RKBA organizations have helped it. Again... they get results. They have actually expanded liberty. Results matter.

Your argument is along the lines of arguing that antibiotics are useless because they don't cure cancer.  The NRA does one thing and does it well.  I wish that we had other organizations to protect the other amendments in the Bill of Rights.  I used to think that the Republican Party was interested in doing that but I am less naive today.  Organizations like FIRE seem to be effective at defending the First Amendment but they are pretty small and can only do so much.  Perhaps they could form the nucleus of an NRA type First Amendment Association.  The ACLU was founded by a Communist for the purpose of making mischief so that is not an option.

641 Lennon? Possible. But, he would have had the Yoko factor to deal with. Very true. He was fascinated by Billy Graham and watched his crusades on TV. One day he announced to Yoko that he had become a born-again Christian and it didn't set too well with her. She talked him down and started controlling what he watched. Jagger is certainly a fiscal conservative. I strongly suspect that Dylan has strong libertarian if not downright conservative leanings. I had the opportunity to meet Robert Plant back in the late eighties and we chit-chatted for 5 minutes or so. I'm not a huge Zeppelin fan but I was impressed by him. He was polite and obviously very intelligent. I couldn't begin to guess his political leanings but I doubt that someone as smart and decent as he seemed to be is a hard-core leftist.

684 Most of the time in this context, it just means making sure that chairs and music stands are in the right places for an entire orchestra. Exceptions are for runout concerts, in which loading and unloading gets involved as well, and chamber music concerts, in which resets happen for each different ensemble.

Obama is going to go to the UN and use his pen and phone to bind us to some international agreement to cut carbon emissions by 28% from 2005 levels (who knows why 2005...) in ten years?

Then use the EPA to implement it. The administrators of which are claiming to have the power to do.

The same things that Tom Cotton wrote to Iran? Yeah, those things apply to the UN also. If the states are smart, they will have the EPA tied up in Court for the next two years until Obama and his Imperial Decrees are just a bad memory.

735 Well, kids always want to hear the theme from "Jaws." Most of what I play is orchestral, so I have very little to no control over the repertoire. Solo-wise, I play most of the Bach suites upon request, which is handy because they are stand-alone pieces in themselves, requiring no accompaniment. If I am asked to play, Bach is usually what comes out. I've gotten away from giving recitals in the last couple of years, due to external events, but I am thinking of getting back to it if I can find a pianist. I've not yet had a chance to perform any of the standard concerti, but I do play them. Bluegrass, Rock, Folk, and New Music are also possibilities...

THE SECOND COMING Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand. The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand; A shape with lion body and the head of a man, A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun, Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds. The darkness drops again but now I know That twenty centuries of stony sleep Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? I'm hoping I die soon. I hate seeing my country rot before my eyes. It's like seeing someone you love dying from spasms.

741 Yes, all the standard nodal harmonics work. Touch at the desired node (1/3rd, 2/5ths, 1/2, etc) and bow in the normal location, and the desired harmonic pops out. We also do artificial harmonics, in which we stop the string with one finger and then touch it with a second, producing a harmonic that cannot otherwise be produced on that particular string.

Jagger is certainly a fiscal conservative.

I strongly suspect that Dylan has strong libertarian if not downright conservative leanings.

I had the opportunity to meet Robert Plant back in the late eighties and we chit-chatted for 5 minutes or so. I'm not a huge Zeppelin fan but I was impressed by him. He was polite and obviously very intelligent. I couldn't begin to guess his political leanings but I doubt that someone as smart and decent as he seemed to be is a hard-core leftist.

"But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith. But they will not get very far, for their folly will be
plain to all, as was that of those two men." (ESV)

753 Bach, because the music is complete in itself, without need for any further accompaniment. Most of the rep involves other instruments. Imagine your favorite Beatles song as performed by just one instrument, and you'll see what I mean. The six Bach suites are written explicitly for solo cello, which makes them good demonstration pieces. I also play one of Britten's solo suites, and I am considering learning Kodaly's solo sonata to branch out. Lots of great music exists for piano and cello, but you really do need both instruments to make that happen.

Back composed volumes and volumes of stuff merely to prove a point about a particular instrument. The best example is his book "The Well-Tempered Clavier" which argued for "tempered" rather than "harmonic" tuning -- and provided 24 preludes and fugues (one each in every major and minor key).......and, here's the punchline.....they were all awesome and enjoyable musical works that are still played today. So, when he sat down and said, "right, then -- solo cello", you got a solid repertoire for solo cello.

Stop thinking that you, personally, are the be all end all of human evolution. Learn to be humble and learn from those older than you. They've been there already.
Put down your freaking phone. Communicate face to face.
Develop a healthy skepticism of those offering you free stuff, because free stuff always comes with strings attached, and you may not like it when the bill comes due.
Stop thinking that you can go through life without getting your feelings hurt. Life is hard. Being stupid is harder.
Quit blaming everyone else for your misfortune. Most of the bad things that happen to you in life is because of your own bad judgement.

Oh, and I hit 57 on Easter Sunday. And I still have a lawn, just a few lawns removed from the first one. That said, I've been thinking real hard about trading in the lawn for a fresh expanse of saltwater. Lived aboard my late, lamented New Dawn for seven years, before getting this house. Looking the boat listings, and trying to reconcile things like a huge-ass gunsafe, cast iron table saw, 5/8", 16 spd industrial drill press and other capital tools, with the space limitations of a 40 ft- 55 ft yacht, be it power or sail. Storage room ashore seems to be one answer, but lacks mobility. All in all, I will this time likely build a 2 ft by 4 ft box, about four inches deep, and keep a patch of Bermuda grass growing therein. So, even at the docks, I can point to my lawn and say: "You. Off. Now." Yeah, I'd be the Moron with a lawn on his boat. Seems fitting, right? Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

Posted by: Soothsayer, Inc. at March 31, 2015 08:54 PM (Yidyr)

772 Tuning is a complex subject. *cracks knuckles* *fires up the math machine* By definition, a "unison" in music is when two pitches have the same frequency, for a ratio of 1:1. The next simplest interval is an octave, in which the higher note vibrates twice as fast as the lower (2:1). The closeness of the ratio makes an out-of-tune octave instantly obvious. The next simplest interval is a fifth (3:2). The opening interval of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" is an octave, the opening interval of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star) is a fifth. Now, if you string together a series of fifths, all in the same direction, you will eventually get back to the same letter-name note, seven octaves higher. But there's a catch: The math doesn't work. No multiple of the 3:2 ratio (9:4, 27:8, etc) will ever work out to the even ratio required for an octave (2:1, 4:1, 8:1, etc). If you go there by fifths, the pitch is different than if you go there by octaves. That difference is called the "Pythagorean comma," and it is the common fault line that runs through all of the different tuning systems developed for fixed-pitch keyboard instruments.

They have convinced me that there is no compromise, no coexistence with them because what they promote cannot be labelled anything else but tyranny. And tyranny can never be lived with or tamed. The Left has made me understand that they are foreign, tyrannical, and un-American. They are no longer my countrymen who are opponents in simple disagreements. They are Enemy. And they have the high ground, the money, the defenses, and a complete lack of morals. Everyone says there is hope - and in God I do hope. But I yearn to rest more than I wish to see the ugliness that is inevitable. Civil unrest is a sterile word for seeing your neighbor's house in flames while his children are beaten by leftwing agitators for being Christian. Civil Unrest is a pale word that means open graves and defacto slaves of the "community directors". Civil war is ugly, it is filled with fear and unfairness and murder and all the horrors of war cranked up to 11 - because it is so much more filled with hate. And that is what is coming. That's why I yearn for rest - I hate knowing that my country will suffer that.

782 A lot of folks talk shit about FB and Twitter, for good reasons. Fact is, to fight the enemy, sometimes you have to fight them on their own turf. Social media is not going to go away. And it holds a lot a sway among the populace. Unless we're willing to accept that, we're just going to continue to bitch and moan about social media doing this and that. Fuck that. My children are on FB and Twitter. My parents and siblings are on FB. They're worth fighting for. So for anyone who says that anyone using FB or Twitter are idiots or whatever, eat a dick. Sometimes, you have to take the fight to the enemy.

Columbo repeatedly said his first name was Lieutenant.

Quincy had an initial: R. His family had to sell the rest during the Depression.

Weirder Quincy detail: His deceased first wife and the woman he married during the series were played by the same actress.

794 Brother Cussword. I feel you there, compadre. Down to the depths of my very soul. But, this is where obligation and brotherhood intrude. We need you, even if only for the first few fleeting seconds of the withering, opening salvos of the onslaught which awaits. Call it cannon fodder, tripwires, canaries in the coal mines or whatever suits you, but one whole hell of a lot of us are going to be but pawns, ground under the heel of an advancing enemy. But, if we can slow 'em up a few seconds, even a minute, well, minutes add up to hours, and etc., etc. I can be a pawn, and maybe my serving as such will give SMFH the time she needs to sneak her and her bolt cutters into the tank yard at Ft. Mmfghlbmph. One of her in an Abrams is worth one hundred of me popping off rounds of 5.56. So, all I can do is to try to make it expensive for them, and worth it for us. Anything less, or earlier by but natural causes...... well. I'm not Beau Bergdahl, and let's just leave it at that. There's plenty of time to rest after I'm gone. Before then, though, I think there's some work to do. Though I might be doomed, my brothers may live. That's good enough for me. Jim Sunk New Dawn Galveston, TX

797 Families don't suck, your relatives do.

The IDEA of a family is a good one. Strive for that ideal.

Being a member of one is obligatory for your first and you have no choice of siblings, parents, relatives.

I am doing myself and the rest of my family (most of whom are dead now ) by leaving  and leaving them be.

The last time I attempted to be a family member, I was instantly treated as if I was 5 and had no brains or sense.

(sister) Ignored her bullying and nonsense until she became disruptive at my work and disobeyed my instructions to not call me there.

When the company folded (no connection as far as I know) I left and did not give her my new address/phone.

Back to my previous years of blissful silence from that quarter.

(To be fair she dislikes/disapproves of me as much as I do of her.)

Our latest Charlatan-in-Chief has done much to reduce us to Carter's ineffectual flailing -- and it is painful, indeed, to see our nation's decline. But we have one advantage they didn't have -- we've seen what a resurgence looks like, we know one is possible.

every depressing thing around us is an opportunity.  you can't improve on perfection.  now we have so much more to improve cuz the assholes have ruined so many things.


and actually my bet is we will find it surprisingly easy -- all we really have to do is tell the brutal truth at all times no matter what the fuckups are saying.  people will know.  no matter how much you despair -- people will know.


for example -- women are starting to notice that they would prefer living in a world with actual men to the wreckage caused by all that over-the-top feminist bullshit.


the house of cards will crash down, and we can push it over -- just by being honest.


I'm actually looking forward to it.

863 835 Cooth, I agree, but who do we have on the horizon? As far as I can see, we don't have a Reagan waiting in the wings. We need a Churchill, and all we have is a Chamberlain. Or a Gamelin. We are just a step or two from becoming Vichy France. But to what world power? Who will be the conqueror that will overrun us? I'm kind of hoping it's Canada.

Posted by: Old Blue at April 01, 2015 02:31 AM (9iR5/)



We can't know who it is or what they'll do until they're in the hot seat and slicin' like a fuckin' hammer, unfortunately. We know that Walker knows how to eviscerate coercive unions; we know Perry can make running the second-largest state look easy; we know that Cruz can preach the Truth about conservatism in a way that the left can ONLY respond to with "la-la-la-la-la-la he's awful" and their fingers in their ears....but none of these is the total package.



But we didn't know that about Reagan, either, in 1980.

867 849 I agree, Baldy. I remember the "sweater" address from Carter. I remember 444 days of worry and stress - I remember registering to vote at eighteen, and pulling the lever for Dutch... I am poorer today than I have ever been. I have fear freedoms then ever. I see fewer intact families than I've ever even read about... I went to a HS that was "urban" by a huge percentage, grew up in a very mixed community, am infatuated with a women of a different race than I, and can state with authority that race relations have never been worse in my lifetime.

868 838 I hate to sound contrarian.....but we were worse off in 1979. Freedom had been buried for so long and the march so relentless that it was only a matter of time that we went completely down the drain. Then we got Ronaldus Maximus.

Our latest Charlatan-in-Chief has done much to reduce us to Carter's ineffectual flailing -- and it is painful, indeed, to see our nation's decline. But we have one advantage they didn't have -- we've seen what a resurgence looks like, we know one is possible.


Posted by: cthulhu at April 01, 2015 02:23 AM (T1005)


There is something dark and unholy about this Obama era though. There is a sinister feel that the carter years didn't have. The carter years were despair, but you didn't feel that yoke of oppression like you do with this doiuchebag. That Kenyan scumbag ushered in a serious side dish of fascism. Carter was a buffoon , but Obama is pure evil.

A rutabaga by any other name would be a turnip. One's bigger than the other, and one has a milder flavor than the other. And I don't remember which. But if you like the one, you will like the other. The difference between them is not a vast gulf.

945 Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming? And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, In full glory reflected now shines in the stream: 'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! And where is that band who so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion, A home and a country should leave us no more! Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave: And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand Between their loved home and the war's desolation! Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our trust." And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

971 The Kwisatz Haderach would weep if he could see what we have become. Barack, John, you are fired! Pack up the stuff in your desks and go home. You have let us all down. Now, we are going to have to nuke those poor enslaved bastards, sooner or later. What was the mystery, boys? Did you go in there thinking that you could sell us out and that no one would notice? Algore, the inventor of the light bulb, could have told you that was not going to work. We deserve you I guess, because we were asleep at the wheel.

975 I saw the pic of the guy saying wiping Israel off the map blah blah. He was an old fart from the Iran Revoltion era. Soon enough that generation is going to be using walkers. Or die off. The gambit appears to be to try and woo the next generation raised on modern conveniences. The strategy is to stall until the 70's generation is done. One man's opinion.

976 Or the strategery is to wipe Israel off the map.
