Canada Christmas surprise…

leave a comment »

A food court in an Ontario mall gets  an unexpected bit of Christmas cheer.   It’s much smaller than the  Macy’ s super-hit from a few days ago,  but well worth your time.

Nigel Farage,  member of the European Parliament,  lets loose with a blistering address to that body in the tradition of Daniel Hannan.   Watch and relish!

Looking in Liqian…

leave a comment »

Thanks to genetic testing of some villagers in Liqian,  situated on the fringes of the Gobi Desert in northwest China,  we have learned they are 56% Caucasian in origin.

That means we know more about those villagers than we do His Oneness.   We can surmise that the Chinese villagers had contact the the “lost” Roman legion,  which left behind blue and green eyes and some fair hair.   Obama acquired his radicalism from his mother and her parents and those he associated with for decades.

websites that facilitate copyright infringement.   It has also just seized the domain of a BitTorrent meta-search engine which operates no tracker,   so the claim will be very hard to establish indeed according  to Torrent..

Meanwhile they ignore the borders…

Palin’s Israeli fans…

leave a comment »

Reading  this explanation of why Israeli settlers love Sarah Palin,  I wonder anew why any Jew would vote the Democratic ticket,  although His Oneness may have cured all but the worst self-haters of their peculiar affliction.

Exiting the dollar…

leave a comment »

China and Russia have  quit the dollar.   MSM is remarkably uninterested in this story,  don’t you think?   We’ll see if the talking heads bring it up on Sunday.

Black Friday news…

leave a comment »

Drudge had half a column on the  various excitement which played out across the country on this ginormous shopping day.  A Target store had a  stacked-up mob,  as did a  Toys R Us,   and customers sinned widely,  from  cutting in line and arguing,  threatening  the use of a gun,  to  stabbing a Marine collecting Toys for Tots.

Me?  I did my shopping online,  and other than a few small items,  I won’t be setting foot inside a store to shop for Christmas.   My needlepoint items are done,  and I’ll start baking in a few days.  The sale day crush is actually an enjoyable annual event for some of my friends.  They think I’m missing out on fun,   and I think they’re crazy.
