Anzac Day

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest We Forget!

Obesity Employer's Fault

At least so they claim. This quote is particularly interesting: "One of the big contributing factors to obesity in this country is the increased access to unhealthy foods", Karen Inge of Jenny Craig. Bull!!! the main cause of obesity is lack of self-control, it's quite simple really the reason you're fat is because you eat too much for how much you exercise, it's not because someone makes food available for you, but because you choose to eat it. It's really not that hard to say, "No thanks, I'm on a diet, I don't need any more food."

2020 Summit

Apparently the 2020 Summit doesn't just consist of left-wing yes men, but fortunately the Labour party has made moves to restore my faith in the irrelevance of the 2020 Summit results.

LawDog on Self Defence

I've just started reading LawDog. One of the more interesting reads on his blog is his Meditations on Self Defence, I'm not sure if I entirely agree with it but it is still an interesting take on the issue of self-defence.

Israelites are as Bad as Nazis

... according to Hamas: apparently Mahmoud al-Zahar (Hamas' founder) thinks that a revolt in Gaza would be morally equivalent of Jews involved in the Warsaw Uprising. Yeah, because you know, there's quite a few Palestinian extermination camps in Israel [by most estimates: ZERO]. And it's not like the Gaza Strip is virtually a independent country or anything, according the Wikipedia: since "12 September 2005, the Palestinian Authority had complete administrative authority in the Gaza Strip", admittedly Israel does control the Sea along the Coast line and all of the Airspace, but, while this is a rare arrangement between two independent countries, it is not unheard off.¹ So basically Hamas² is complaining because Israel does not allow them to freely cross the borders between itself (Israel) and a hostile country ruled by a terrorist organization that has as one of it's stated objectives the destruction of the Israeli nation, and is known for suicide bombings against civilians, gee I wonder why. I also wonder why Hamas doesn't feel the need to complain about Egypt (a fellow Islamic nation) also having a closed border policy?
