If there is any censorship of expression, thought or “Free Speech” then we have a problem. We have laws to protect us from deformation, slander, promoting hatred, etc. We have laws that protect our children and we should have more. But, if someone expresses an opinion that is not slanderous or compliant with deformation, then it should not be censored. The recent event in Paris is a glowing example of totalitarian control and a double-standard. On one hand we have cartoons designed to demonize a specific group and possibly create violence or a backlash, and yet any comment targeting Israel that does not place them above the rest of us mere mortals, is forbidden or worse…it is a blasphemy! 1984 and the Thought-Police are alive and well. “Double-Speak” is the language of the day. Free Speech is the right of all of us and not a gift from authority. -The Warrior
“All governments lie, as I.F. Stone pointed out, including Israel and Hamas. But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it.”
“I saw small boys baited and killed by Israeli soldiers in the Gaza refugee camp of Khan Younis. The soldiers swore at the boys in Arabic over the loudspeakers of their armored jeep. The boys, about 10 years old, then threw stones at an Israeli vehicle and the soldiers opened fire, killing some, wounding others.”
Breaking News Flash
Stunning Israeli satellite images reveal Hezbollah’s latest secret weapon. Pictures appear to show the latest ICBM (Inter-Continental Bullshit Missile) known as the Hezbollah “Habibi” -Mark 17b. Estimated as having an effective rage of around 15 feet (4.6 metres), this supersonic stealth missile is of great concern to the Israel government, along with it’s allies. Retired weapons expert and owner of “Milty’s Kosher Deli and Matzo Emporium”, Milton Slotnick, told the Israel Times that he was shocked and surprised at the sophistication of this advanced weaponry. “It is exactly what we have warned about with regards to Iran trying to develop a nuclear device using “Glow-in-the dark” paint from a Timex watch. These terrorist will stop at nothing. Try the Chicken soup.”
In a recent comment from the White House, President Obama said, “Let me be clear. We, as Israel’s premier supported and major funder, using American’s hard earned tax dollars, will not idly stand by and allow the terrorist organization Hezbollah to stockpile these weapons-of-mass-desperation (WMD’s). Israel has every right to self-defence and it is immaterial that Hezbollah is reacting to Israeli aggression. Just because Israel created Hamas in order to sabotage any peace negations on behalf of the PLO is not important.”
Former President, George “Double-Yah” Bush, famous for his statement, “We have prevailed”, said in an interview with FUX NEWS, that he was very disappointed with this latest developments. When asked by reporter Anderson Pooper to comment, he responded; “…er, fool me, er…twice, sorry once…and shame on you…no, …er me. Fool me twice and then the shame that is or was on me, is then on…you. Oh, fuck! Whatever! Laura…where’s my brain?” Mr. Bush is recovering nicely.
The Israeli President made a passionate plea today when addressing the United Nations. In it, he reinforced Israel’s commitment to détente and negotiations. His most poignant statements was … “Help us or we will blow the planet to fuck!” He went on to say: “We can assure our critics 100% that these deadly rockets are NOT made out of cardboard toilet-tube rolls…honest, and cross my heart.”
Hezbollah “Habibi” -Mark 17b. Power: Solid-state fertilizer/chicken shit propulsion. Range: 15 to 20 ft. Height: 42 feet (approximation calculated on the average height of the Elvis look-a-like terrorists working on the rocket captured in this spy footage. Please note the three insurgents wearing fireproof gold suits. This proves that Hezbollah numbers in the billions and this information is as reliable as Colin Powell’s speech regarding “Weapons of Mass Destruction” in Iraq.

According to Forbes there was a total of 1426 billionaires in 2013 with a net worth of $5.4 trillion as opposed to 470 in 2000 worth $898 billion. This means that the amount of
billionaires has tripled in 13 years where as the net worth is six times greater (not accounting for inflation). Even with an accumulated inflation rate of around 35% (meaning that every dollar in 2000 would cost $1.35 in 2013) the math still yields an increase of 4.5 times, so there are more billionaires making greater profits today than thirteen years ago, around 50% greater profits to be precise. Has your income increased 50% in the last 13 years?
The question then is, how well off are the general public in comparison? Of course this depends on one’s perspective and who exactly is making the claim. An article that appeared in the British paper the Daily Mail (March, 2013) stated British families “…will be no better off in 2015 than in 2000 due to devastating attack on family finances”. Is any of this negativity contributable to the growing numbers of people diagnosed with depression? There are others that claim the opposite, that we are doing great and that the proof is seen in how many choices we have when watching television (I kid you not). In a December 2013 article titled “Who Needs a Raise When You Have TV?” that appeared in Bloomberg Opinion (bloomberg.com), author Virginia Postrel stated: “On a flight across the country, you watch the playoff game on live television, listen to some favorite playlists…then relax with some video poker. Arriving home, you delete the game from your DVR and consider your options. Too tired for an intense cable drama – which you prefer to experience in…marathons of at least three episodes each – you stream a first-season episode of “Duck Dynasty” from Amazon.com, then run last week’s “Elementary” from your DVR queue. While watching, you check IMDB.com…then you jump to your Facebook and Twitter feeds. You finish the evening with “SportsCenter,” recorded just far enough ahead that you can skip most of the commercials.” Wow, our progression is truly amazing thanks to TV. Postrel goes on to say: “A form of progress that large numbers of people experience every day, the increase in entertainment variety and convenience represents a challenge to the increasingly conventional wisdom that American living standards have stagnated, at least for the middle class.” How is it possible that anyone wishing to be taken seriously could make such a demeaning and elitist comment. This smacks of the Roman adage “Bread and Circuses”, keeping the Plebs happy through mindless spectacle, but Postal has gone one step further and eliminated the “Bread”. However, we must remember where this article appeared. In a media channel owned by Michael Bloomberg whose estimated worth is $31 billion and described by thedailybeast as: “…a rogue billionaire who doesn’t believe the rules apply to him even as he’s busy inventing new ones for the rest of us.” Interesting.
