"I feel I can relate to Obama. He's African and his father is Muslim,"

Can you tell that to the muslim savages in Sudan, they seem to have trouble relating to the Africans they're busying murdering and raping.

ott, but is the term King Tut considered a compliment or an insult in modern Egypt? The people who disliked Sadat deliberately used the term pharaoh as an insult:

Interesting point. I hadn't heard that Sadat was called the pharoah by his detractors. Based on the picture accompanying this pharaonic reference, it appears to be meant as a compliment.

What can I say - the world has turned upside down. What's right is now wrong and vice versa.

Thanks for stopping by adagiorstrings. You've got a great blog and I enjoyed visiting your site. I'll be back!

  • UK Has Their Own Free Shi& Army: Benefits rising twice as fast as salaries: Payments to unemployed jump by 20 % in five years
    Welfare handouts to those languishing on the dole have risen almost twice as fast as average wages over the past five years. Out-of-work benefits have jumped in value by an astonishing 20 per cent since 2007 while wages have crept up by just 12 per cent, official figures released last night reveal.
  • That Movie: How The Innocence of Muslims Was Made
    When struggling actor Tim Dax was hired to star in a swords-and-sandals movie titled Desert Warrior, he was just happy to have the job. One year later, Dax and the rest of the film’s cast and crew would look on in horror as The Innocence of Muslims—a crudely dubbed version of the movie they thought they were making—ignited protests across the Arab world and controversy at home. Speaking with many of the film’s principals, Michael Joseph Gross reports on a story as old as Hollywood itself: a pursuit of fame and fortune that ended in tears.
  • Pravda to Americans: Never Give Up Your Guns
    "These days, there are few few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bare arms and use deadly force to defend one's self and possessions."
