    Well, actually, if the information in the aforementioned documentary is correct, the odds are good that he did indeed purchase it with actual legal tender from the legal owner. The documentary posits that the Jews who moved to "Palestine" did so as immigrants, not conquerors. One problem for the Palestinians and the rest of the Arab world was that they sided with the Nazis in WWII. Not good to attach your wagon to the losers.

    Funny you should say that. Dove season 2012 a group of us were hunting between the levee and the river and we were visited by a BP officer. He said that he thought we were fine but if we saw the Mexican army on the other side, we should try to stay out of their sight. I found that a bit interesting.

    I was just reading the NYTimes on-line. The USA is set to give the Mexican government 875 million is aide over the next year.

    I don't think we should ever give them one red penny. But, since our government is so damn benevolent with tax payer money, what if we told the Mex President that their country is nothing more than a pain in the ass and we are cutting off all aide to them!

    From an article on CNN.com: Last month, a poll by the Washington Institute found most Palestinians in Gaza oppose a two-state solution and want to work toward a five-year goal of abolishing Israel --


    With that as their stated goal, I see little reason for Israel to ease up on their efforts against Hamas. How is that even an option in anyone's mind?

    Here is my take on the playground. The playground is nothing more than an old sand box that kids have been playing in for years. A family of kids moved to another playground that had swings, slides, and merry-go-rounds. At the new playground there was another family of kids that thought they owned the playground. They would fight with everyone and blame all their problems on the new family of kids. Before all the kids could get together and chase the bullies away the a brother and sister got killed by the bullies. So the littlest brother decided he would go back to the old sandbox to play. He had never played there, but his brother and sister had. They told him how there great grandfather, who was more like a father, had build the sand box so they would always have a place to play. So when the little boy got back to the sand box he found another little boy playing in the sand. He wanted to play, but the other little boy told him to go away it was his sand box. The little boy told the story about his great grandfather, but the other little boy did not care. The selfish little boy ran to tell his older brothers about this kid coming back to play in his sand box. The older brothers had a new big and better sand box, but they really didn't want to share with this little brother since he had a different mother than they did and he was always crying. He also could never keep his clothes white and ruined all the family pictures. So they decided it was best to go chase off this other little boy, so with there plastic shovels in hand they ran to the sand box. When they got there they started calling names and throwing their plastic shovels. The were meet with a surprise by this little boy who stood all alone. He did not have plastic shovels, but metal shovels and many wagons full of medal shovels. He started throwing his shovels because he wasn't going to let happen to him what happened to his brother and sister. The older brothers ran away, but instead of telling the younger brother he should share and be nice to this boy they keep encouraging him to continue to throw more plastic shovels. If the younger brother would stop listening to his older brothers and learn to be nice to the boy that returned to this old sand box he would be having more fun. Everyone knows it is always more fun to play with friends than to sit in the sand box alone.
