Hey, remember when this site featured commentary on non-rockin' out-related topics? A taste today, a trickle comes, as my breakfast was almost soured by a reopening, w/Yuoshka, of the only topic more searingly divisive for us than whether Maiden's first singer was worth a damn. (That I won't even name the dork should imply my position there.) The one that can make us go days with nothing to say about the other the other than "Fuck that faggot."
It couldn't be helped, it was broached by another, an innocent, an unwarned soul, who asked us over ice-loud slurps of Coke "if we were of the same mind on Israel v. Palestine, or is that something you fight about too?" (We had been, Yuosh & I, ignoring the rest of the table in order to almost holler, in the packed bistro, about whether writers and producers of "The Brady Bunch" ever slipped subtle subversions into the scripts, which Yuoshka's insistence upon is perhaps the sort of retarded over-optimism one can associate with people who allegedly want to see Communist rule spread. He does, look in his wallet - card-carrying! Thinks it can work! These people still exist! Ad people call Li'l Copenhagen the throwback, the museum piece?)
Bellowing over the crepes this morning didn't purge all the bile that needed purging, so I ask the Internet's ether, what online pharmacy can provide me with the crazy pills taken by people who think the media are, I'm chuckling as I type it, "pro-Israel"? When the daily rocket attacks on Sderot are nearly without exception described as "seldom fatal"? It's a striking dismissal. Usually only property damage and maybe some serious injuries and the constant possibility of a fucking rocket blowing your house up. But only a couple-few civilian fatalities a year, so certainly not anything for the Israeli military to feel compelled to act upon, daily rocket attacks compliments of people whose stated desire is your extinction.
And almost exactly the same goes for the coverage of suicide bombings when a few months have passed without one. No one can get more than 4 sentences into their piece without saying something very close to "the first such attack in months". It's usually in the first sentence. Why, it's been months since baby bits pinkly frosted a donut shop, and one teensy-weensy bombing and Israelis want something to happen because of it? The swine, the Jew swine! Can't they just negotiate and compromise? With the people whose stated desire is their extinction?
