  1. When will the stripey-pants diplo set comprehend that you don’t sit around waiting for people to come kill you? It is far more productive to go out and kill them first.

  2. Ugh I’m ranting but I got the courage to apply for a retail job (Vancouver) and the black clad woman only face showing is doing an application , her husband I guess with the hat takes some distance from me as I apply, then ohh working lady there pages a manager to see us his name is Mohammad.

  3. When my husband did a lot of international travel he was part of the STEP program. Not only does it alert about potential terrorist threats world wide but it also alerts about inoculations that need to be up to date in various parts of the world as well as various counter remedies that can be legally carried.
    My husband’s Dr. was very good about this however, it did not prevent him from getting two serious cases of food poisoning.
