On The Mark -- Hypocrisy Decade

Talk about dumbing down, it's gotten so bad that governmental officials, from all points across the world, now think that the public (of any nationality) will buy anything that's said.

Our "good friend and ally," Saudi Arabia, held its first "nationwide" elections for municipal councils this week. It was nationwide in geography only because women were not allowed to run for office. In fact, they were banned from voting, too.

When a Saudi official was asked why women were not allowed to vote, his response was that THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH VOTING BOOTHS FOR WOMEN.

When historians looked back on this period, it will be known as the "Hypocrisy Decade."

(Anybody know a good handyman? Have him/her call Saudi Arabia to see if they want any help getting some voting booths built.)

Saudi Arabia: Official headquarters of the He-Man Woman Hater's Club.

I assume we're planning an invasion there next, you know...to free the people and guarantee basic human rights for all?

We might be planning an invasion, if the Bushs' were so friendly with them. However, I would not discount us from dropping a Bunker-buster bomb on Iran and leaving.

He-Man Woman Hater's Club -- I like that. Although I don't think they hate women, they just only like them for one thing. I don't live there so I know this is just a wild statement, but on the face of it, it seems the women there need to form an underground resistance and find a way to rise up and fight and find a way to make it global so that it's hard for the "men" to stamp it out.
