Interestingly enough some of the visitors that spent the greatest amount of time tooling around here are from Kuwait, Malaysia, Indonesia and Syria.
A couple of years ago I had some heated arguments with a few folks about Mel Gibson. I didn't trust him and I still don't trust him. Enjoyed a number of his movies but the dude has a loose screw and if recent appearances are to be believed doesn't really like my people all that much.
Spent time surfing the radio. Listened to Tom Leykiss, Al Rantel, Larry Elder and some Air America and found that there were plenty of people calling in to complain about Israel. In some respects it was a little disheartening. They tried to write off the Seattle shooter as a mentally ill wackjob and apologized for Hizbollah and Hamas.
That bothers me. To begin with I don't believe that most of these people would allow their next door neighbor to throw rocks at their house. And I don't believe that they would respond by shaking their fingers at them.
I don't like apologists for terror. There are many nonviolent forms that could be taken, but these two groups don't use those methods.
I play it safe when it comes to terror and that means that I assume that there are wackjobs out there who think that murder is a legitimate form of protest. You'll forgive me, but when someone tells me to turn the other cheek I assume that they are bending over so that I can put my size 12 boot on their cheeks.
This is part of why I appreciate the slogan below.
Here we are in the middle of the nine days. We are at war. On a more personal note life at the Shack has been exceptionally crazy. There are stories upon stories that could be shared and may one day, but I am not quite ready for that.
Today I received treatment for the tooth I broke. Loved the dentist, didn't like the bill and am not real fond of the monstrosity in my mouth.
I am still listening to the Batman Begins soundtrack. I love it. Beyond that this evening included the following tunes.
