Time for the week in review.
Oscar telecast is on tonight. Expect "The Artist" to eat all the awards...
Hey, um, next time you're getting rid of Holy texts, just dispose of them without telling anyone about it - okay? Seems fewer people will get shot over it. Maybe they could have just redacted the notes that were being passed back and forth?
Well, I wonder how pissed off they'll be when we start another war in the Middle East?
The War Drums are getting louder and louder. The UK already seems predisposed to fight their next battle - they're planning on sending troops to UAE. And a submarine. [More]
And even when there's a war there, how will anyone stop Iran from getting and using a nuclear weapon?
Iran has rapidly ramped up production of higher-grade enriched uranium over the last few months, the U.N. nuclear agency said Friday, in a confidential report that feeds concerns about how quickly the Islamic republic could produce an atomic bomb. The International Atomic Energy Agency report also said Iran failed to give a convincing explanation about a quantity of missing uranium metal. Diplomats say the amount unaccounted for is large enough to be used for experiments in arming a nuclear missile. [more]
We're going to be at war, but the over under is whether it'll be before the election or after it.
Quick thought, how does irradiating the land help the Palestinian people?
The fact that Rick "don't google me" Santo-rum has gotten this far scares the living hell out of me, and it ought to scare every Democrat in the nation. Unless Obama hits that number 8 target in October, he ought to be very scared too.
And he's not really helping himself lately. He's, at best, a very bad politician. The worst case is that he doesn't know he's a really bad politician.
The federal government could hit the debt ceiling sooner than expected — and possibly around the November election — according to a report out Friday. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill had hoped that last summer’s deal to end the nasty fight over lifting the debt ceiling would ensure the issue wouldn’t resurface until at least 2013. But the Bipartisan Policy Center said Friday that the debt-limit doomsday could come earlier than that. [source]
Joke's on both of them - it's not that gas prices are rising, the dollar is falling... stupid. [Forbes]
And Greece continues to be the money pit, and Illinois is the US's Greece.
And the entire US elected a politician from Greece to run the country, and we're standing around wondering why everything looks like Chicago?
Ah well, that's a week folks. I'll try to meet back here tomorrow and the next day. See you then.
