Friday's Fulminations

There is mild moderation.  Normal rules of blogger etiquette and courtesy to blog hosts will apply.with serious transgressors being thrown out.

Unfortunately our system does not allow your comments to show up in the blog post itself.  Just in the comments section.

Visitors might consider the wisdom of using moderate language.

Regards

Given Veterans sudden fling with PC I thought that as Festive gift (OK, Xmas gift) i would supply a link to something very unPC.....overage sex, loneliness, binge drinking and employee abuse.

It's also the most repeated TV program (10 mins) on the entire planet...ever, I mean ever.

It has been broadcast every Christmas day on German TV since 1963 and on Scandinavian TV stations at some time over the Christmas period for last twenty years.

I give you dinner for one...enjoy

Did you know that 26 US States require a loyalty oath for State employees and contractors?

Those of us who have read Heller's "catch 22" will recall the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade where loyalty oaths were required before any function could be filled, from getting a meal to fighting the enemy.

The odd thing about these loyalty oaths is not that they demand fealty to the State or the Nation, but that the potential employee / contractor must pledge loyalty to a foreign power, Israel.

In the case of Texas, the wording is "Sec. 2270.002. PROVISION REQUIRED IN CONTRACT. A governmental entity may not enter into a contract with a company for goods or services unless the contract contains a written verification from the company that it:

(1) does not boycott Israel; and

(2) will not boycott Israel during the term of the contract."

So, in the land of the free, you are free to boycott GM, Coca Cola, Starbucks, etc., but you may not boycott Sodastream, Moroccanoil, or Psagot Wines.

Vlad - Donnie, I need to call in a favor. You have to do me a solid.

Donnie - OK, Vlad, what do you need?

Vlad - Donnie, I need you to pull out ...

Donnie - The Don never pulls out.

Vlad - Donnie, listen, pull out of Syria. I need you to pull out of Syria. This war is costing me too much and I need my Empire stable.

Donnie - You know, Vlad, you know me, you like me, I like you, but I'd get killed by the Lying media and my party if I did that.

Vlad - Donnie, you have to come through on this, I still have the tapes ...

Donnie - But how can I do it?

Vlad - Easy. Declare mission accomplished. Declare ISIS defeated. Announce the "troops will be home for Christmas". Throw a big parade and award yourself some medals. I'll even get a Time cover made showing you in full military uniform.

Donnie - Aw Vlad, you're just the best.

Egbut - excellent link.

Definitely your best contribution to No Minister in 2018.

Thank you pdm...I am prepared to bask in unwarranted admiration be it from the most unlikely of sources.
