Insult to Humanity?

***Iran's psychotic little dictator is at it again:

Israel's existence is an "insult to all humanity," Iran's president said Friday in one of his sharpest attacks yet against the Jewish state, as Israel openly debates whether to attack Iran over its nuclear program.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said confronting Israel is an effort to "protect the dignity of all human beings."
"The existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to all humanity," Ahmadinejad said. He was addressing worshippers at Tehran University after nationwide pro-Palestinian rallies, an annual event marking Quds (Jerusalem) Day on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan.
The comments are "reminiscent" of a letter written about the Jews and signed by Adolf Hitler in 1919, Rabbi Marvin Hier, Founder and Dean of the Simon Wisenthal Center, says.

Yet our president reprimands Israel for daring speak about attacking Iran because of its nuclear weapons. It's a shame Obama won't stand behind one of our staunchest allies in the Middle East. 

***I'm sure you've heard all about automation and how robots are replacing humans in the workplace. Here is one businessman's take:

In talking with many businessmen around the world I hear a common theme:
One of the major drivers of automation is workers’ comp claims, sick leave, sexual harassment suits, and all the myriad headaches that come with hiring anyone. Unions have brought so many demands for workers it is far simpler to avoid hiring anyone whenever possible. Many companies go to extreme lengths to avoid hiring more workers.

They cause the problem, then squeal at the results of their actions. 


In his inaugural address, Obama promised “not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth.” He promised to “build the roads and bridges, the electric grids, and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together.” He promised to “restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost.” And he promised to “transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.” Unfortunately the president’s scorecard on every single one of those bold pledges is pitiful.

***10 worst hotels and motels in America. Ew, some of this is gross.

***Peggy Noonan: "If Biden were Republican, "Meet the Press's" story would be How Stupid is this Person?" She's absolutely right.

PEGGY NOONAN, WALL STREET JOURNAL: Oh, well I thought everything Rudy Giuliani just said was true. If it had been a Republican vice presidential candidate who had made those gaffes, one after another, so comically, and all on tape, the subject today of the panel would be how stupid is this person, can this person possibly govern?


***Is there anyone Obama won't betray? Uhhh...nope, can't think of anyone.

The 215-year-old USS Constitution has sailed for the first time since 1997, taking a 17-minute cruise across Boston Harbor to the cheers of thousands of onlookers.The short trip Sunday was to commemorate the Navy ship’s victory over a British warship of a similar size in a fierce battle during the War of 1812. Following the battle, the Constitution was nicknamed “Old Ironsides.”
An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family. He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire. They could get by.
The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end his career.
When the carpenter finished his work and the builder came to inspect the house, the contractor handed the front-door key to the carpenter. “This is your house,” he said, “my gift to you.”
What a shock! What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently. Now he had to live in the home he had built none too well.

There's work to do, deadlines to meet,
You've got no time to spare.
But as you hurry and scurry,
In the midst of family chaos,
"Quality time" is rare.
Do your best, let God do the rest,
It may seem like your worries
Are more than you can bear.
Slow down and take a breather,
God knows how stressful life is,
He wants to ease our cares.
And He'll respond to all your needs,
