Did I mention how much I despise Firefox? Again, it installed some update to something which somehow corrupted the whole thing, including my bookmarks (Xmarks, which takes forever, is now trying to restore them, but the entire browser seems wrecked). I'd scrap it in a heartbeat, except that some things, including Blogger, don't work well on Opera (although I'm finding that this posting is working on Opera). Meanwhile, Opera keeps chugging along, completely dependable. If I needed any more reason to think that geeks were stupid, their devotion to Firefox - the steampunk browser - would be enough to conclude the matter.
Zionist censorship, as usual, from the Canadian Conservative Party (which is erupting in a series of non-stop scandals, and seems tired of ruling and ready to turn over power to Iggy, Mr. More-Of-The Same):
"The organization representing more than 65,000 academic and general staff at 121 universities and colleges across Canada is calling for the resignation of Minister of State for Science and Technology Gary Goodyear following his unprecedented efforts to interfere with funding for a major academic conference.
CAUT has learned that Goodyear telephoned the president of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to ask him to reconsider a peer-reviewed decision to fund an academic conference called 'Israel/Palestine: Mapping models of statehood and prospects for peace' being held at York University later this month.
"It's unprecedented for a minister - let alone a minister from the department that funds the granting councils - to intervene personally with a granting council president to suggest that he review funding for an academic conference,' said CAUT executive director James Turk. 'This kind of direct political interference in a funding decision made through an independent, peer-reviewed process is unacceptable and sets a very dangerous precedent.'"
The difference between Max Blumenthal's video of some American Jews in Israel and any given video of some drunk frat boys in Mississippi spouting racist epithets is that the drunk frat boys in Mississippi aren't reflecting the views of the government of the United States, but the American Jews in Israel are exactly reflecting the views of the Israeli government and world Jewish leadership. It is striking how thoroughly American Jews have polluted the politics of Israel. The reason the Huffington Post refused to post the video isn't because it wasn't newsworthy, but is solely because the Jewish Billionaires who fund the Huffington Post want to keep the little dirty secret of real Jewish and Israeli opinion away from the American people.
Saraha? I looked at it, thought 'that doesn't look right' and then carried on. I think I'm becoming dyslexic.
