Israeli Payback

I've been watching the news over the last few days watching as Israel dishes out some payback onto Hezbollah guerillas in southern Lebanon.

Good for them.

As I was watching one of the reports on FoxNews last night, I remarked to my wife:

'You know.....if some Islamic psycho was able to detonate a nuclear weapon in Israel and killed a few million Jews.....there would be Arab nations and American peaceniks bitchin and moaning about all of the smoke coming from the nuclear firestorm and the United Nations would be trying to issue a condemnation on Israel for all the pollution caused by the bomb.'

My wife agreed.

I'm serious as a heart attack: no matter what Israel does, they are to blame for all the crap happening......as far as the Arab world and most American newspapers are concerned.

Tear it up Israel!

Let There Be Light

(By way of PDA)
I'm trying something new to deal with the neuropathy that comes from dialysis - Infrared Therapy.

I'm laying here on a bench with IR lights strapped to my feet. The 'treatment' is 30 minutes long and I'm told that most patients don't see any change(s) until nine or ten treatments.

I was initially leary about trying this to treat the neuropathy, but I'm guessing that as far as the neurologist that I'm seeing is concerned, I'll have to learn to 'crawl' before I can walk.....meaning that I'll have to undergoe these treatments before she realizes that this isn't a 'normal' problem; initially, she had me return to taking a specific medication that I was taking before my stroke.....one that did nothing. I took the meds for several weeks before she said 'Hmmm....it doesn't seemto be doing anything.'

As my daughter would say: 'Doi!!' And the goofy part of this is that this IR thetapy is supposed to improve blood circulation and the neuropathy problem is the nerves in my feet arebasically 'spazzing out'.

Like I said before: crawl before walking....

And the added bonus to this? I get to listen to old women bitch about having knots in their backs as I lay here...

Out of Curiousity...

Does anyone know of a 'decent' way to make money....under the table?

And I know of the 'obvious' ones: gun running, illegal alien smuggling, drug dealer, etc.

Just curious......for research purposes.

Temporary Reprieve

I initially missed this when it was announced:

Reprieve for cross extended

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy extended his temporary stay protecting the Mount Soledad cross yesterday until state and federal courts can hear appeals this fall by the city of San Diego to preserve the landmark.

In blocking a federal judge's order that the city remove the cross by Aug. 1 or face a $5,000 daily fine, Kennedy indicated that the full court would review the case if it were to come before the court.

Kennedy said the court, which refused three years ago to get involved in the dispute, may consider it because of two new factors favorable to cross proponents.

He cited legislation to designate the city-owned land a national veterans memorial and a ballot initiative in which San Diegans overwhelmingly voted to transfer the land to the federal government.

Kennedy's move is a big boost for cross supporters and the city in their efforts to preserve the La Jolla landmark, which is part of a veterans memorial.

The cross was ordered removed in 1991 by U.S. District Court Judge Gordon Thompson Jr. in San Diego federal court. Thompson said the cross was a religious symbol whose presence violated the state Constitution's ban on a government showing a preference for religion.

Mayor Jerry Sanders welcomed Kennedy's opinion at a news conference, recalling his oft-stated promise to do everything possible to retain the cross.

“Today is validation that this was the right course of action,” he said.

It's a temporary reprieve, but it's a reprieve none the less.

What I find most interesting considering that it was a U.S. Supreme Court Justice that noted it was that the Court noted that the ballot initiative that was passed overwhelmingly in favor of saving the cross and leaving it where it is - passed by the voters of San Diego.

To me, this is noteable because it would seem that someone finally - finally - took notice of the people's choice in the matter.

Will it stay? I don't know, but the arguments for keeping it will hopefully be heard in the Supreme Court.

We'll all have to wait and see.

(Thanks to Citizen Smash for the clue alert.)
