The Common Ills Iraq snapshot
Iraq snapshotThursday, May 21, 2015. Chaos and violence continue, politicians continue lying about Iraq, Haider al-Abadi goes off on a whirlwind trip to Russia, Barack insists that the Islamic State is not winning in Iraq, and much more.
Throughout this week, I've repeatedly stressed that the only politician with a national profile who can tell the truth on Iraq is former Senator Mike Gravel. No one else can.
Today, Fritz comes along to prove me . . . right.
Former Senator Ernest F. Hollings comes along to prove that, while a train can whistle, a politician can only lie.
"Why America invaded -- and failed in -- Iraq," finds Fritz name dropping ("my old desk partner, Joe Biden"), envious of other countries ("What does Mossad say about Iraq?") but mainly just lying. Lying to himself and others.
Fritz insists he was against the Iraq War . . . before he was for it. See speaking to then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, sharp as a tack Fritz noticed Rumsfeld didn't answer him... (more)
Life Rest Easy
This week, there were two unfortunate deaths which occurred within my inner circle. The first, was a kid named Matt Acosta, who graduated from the same high school as me. He was two or three years older than me, and he actually dated my cousin at one point in time. He was a nice kid from what everyone is saying, and his death came rather shockingly, because he wasn't sick or anything. He was into drugs apparently, and threw up in his sleep, ultimately suffocating on his own vomit. It sounds pretty terrible, because it was. My brother knew him better than I did, and he said he was a genuine kind of guy. He owned a strip club with his brothers in East Orange, and he actually had told me he was planning on going to it a few weeks before he ended up passing. It's a sad thing, because whenever somebody that young dies, you start to think about your own life. What if it were me? What if I suddenly died tomorrow? Surely my parents and siblings would be a wreck, but what about my... (more)
Beverly A. Hines Four Tips to Help You Buy Dresses For Bridesmaids
Bridesmaid dresses should coordinate with your bridal gown, suits the theme of your wedding. And you also hope these dresses can figure flattering and affordable. Let these tips guide you to find beautiful dresses that will make you and your bridesmaids happy.
Tip 1: Don't start looking at bridesmaid dresses until you have ordered your wedding dress. Bridesmaid dresses should always match your wedding dress. Never buy bridesmaid gowns before you have purchased your bridal gown. You don't want to be in the position of seeking a wedding dress that looks good with what your attendants are wearing; it should always be the other way around.

.: LifeHasBegun:. Ntah kenapa hari ini hari yang paling letih di dunia
Letih. Rasa nak baring kejap. And bangun esok pagi terus ada banyak duit T___T
Acik dak macam tu?
Semalam dah pesan dekat diri sendiri suruh tido awal sebab pagi ini ada banyak kerja yang memerlukan pergerakan menggunakana tenaga yang banyak. So kena tido awal untuk rehat awal and kumpul tenaga banyak-banyak. Kononnyaaa laaahhh..
Sekalikk.... pukul 2 dok layan candy crush lagi
Susah pulak nak tido awalnya. Mungkin kah sebab dah tak lama nak pindah rumah, so kepala otak da berserabut dengan macam-macam benda?
Kesannya hari ini, belum pun sampai pukul 3, aku dah mula picit-picit leher. Rasa letih sangat nieh.
Harap-harap malam ni dapat tido awal.
buyeragent Home Buying Insights
Discount RealtorsÂ® are an awesome way for home buyers to save a lot of money when they buy a home, but I had a few insights about discount realty a few days ago when I noticed that the quality of the agent I was thinking about working with simply wasn't up to par.
The insight came when the agent didn't answer my emails, and after waiting for a long awaited response, I called the agent on the phone and he didn't answer so I left the agent a message. Surprisingly, it took that agent two days to return my phone call. I was really eager to begin the process of buying a nice home I had my eye on so I wasn't reluctant in expressing to that agent my disappointment, to which the agent replied,
"I don't see why you're so disappointed. You are saving a lot of money working with me."
It was not long after that agents response that I had a light bulb moment: Many discount RealtorsÂ® are not of the same quality as non discount RealtorsÂ® because they are not getting paid as much for... (more)
