Transaction Costs

The key to successful biz is to limit them. Case closed you all now have a Harvard MBA. To bad GWB never went to class. In the case study of Israel vs the Palestinians we have huge transaction costs for both sides. The Arabs pay more in blood, but the Israel side suffers more in commerce given the economies in this hot zone. Israel has an endless supply of cash from ex patriots Jews and even gentiles who look forward to the Apocalypse and hope their cash helps it happen faster.

Israel should realize this is a product that may no longer sell. Its ripe, its past the due date and even on the reduced price shelf the current strategy has few buyers.
My proposal is that we make a new homeland for Palestine in Canada. I say near the tar sands of Saskatchewan, lets give the people some ownership of these economic golf courses just like Exxon. If we build it they will come. Israel annexes Gaza and the West Bank. Its case closed, Clouseau for the world. This train is never coming back because there is no station to go to.

For the Palestinian its living in Disneyland. Free Free at last. Why not, why fucking not. You think 70 years of mindless bloodshed and economic ruin is better?

For Canada taking in 4.4 million people in a single shot is a challenge.
However not a big one. If half the money spent now came to make this new city it would be a showcase. Furthermore its a one time expenditure with dividends endlessly. Lets make a city of the future in Saskatoon and populate it with Palestinians.

I have spent years in Muslims countries, I have good friends who are Muslim. Most Muslim are just like me and you. Only want to have a good time until the whole shithouse goes up in flames. I have zero fear of 4.4 million Muslims living in Canada next week.

Its not exotic but it is photogenic. If I get enough likes I will post more.

The Blue Rose

Peter Straub who has been lauded had not been lauded enough. The protagonist of the Blue Rose trilogy solved crimes from newspaper clippings. There is a very good chance I am confused about the author and the timeline. However my point is still sublime. People used to solve crimes by reading newspaper headlines. Today we are far past that.  Indeed it is not so easy because the printed pages contain so little truth. This makes the task of an internet detective so vermouth. So much information and all conflicting with everyone certified as truth. Someone is not speaking that but it will take a holocaust and a dead Siamese cat to put out the fire and read the ashes. The truth the truth is what we seek, but we cover our eyes when it does not agree with our fundamental belief. You can tell them, you can show them, you can run any experiment, take a selfie from space but when you want to blame the goverment, the world is flat.

If you believe in God your an optimist, if you believe in a religion your a sheepleist. Thats what I believe and I have seen the world. You think God would have left out the Chinese and the Indonesians when he gave the Christians his word? I got problems with the Jews as well. It seems that God was really concerned with hygiene and uplifting begottens with these people, and not to bat a fact, it made them well.

As we arrive at the end of my post there should be now wonder. In fact if I read it myself I often say, delete, confirm or go some place other. What I am saying is that with a great detective no crime will go unpunished due to the internet. That is if the great detective can publish,

nina paley looks at the Middle East Conflict

Its a fantastic animation that really made me (and others see video below) thinkaboot it.

Editors Note: At this time in history I am on the side of Israel. That is not to say I or even most Jews support everything they do. I just do not know what other choice they have? I have a solution but it makes to much sense to implement.

Years ago my go to source for news was the Drudge Report. After a decade of chases his links I realized I was being groomed. Then I moved to the Huff Puff, but the Canadian Edition is run by a right winger. Lately my world view is mostly informed by reading it.

Asymmetric Warfare Everywhere


The illegal immigration crisis on the US southern border is seen in the video below as warfare. I guess the enemy is the poor and huddled Central American masses.  George W Bush and the Banana Republicans for reasons unknown created the child crisis by changing the law. Every person arrested in the drug war is a Asymmetric warrior because the cost of imprisonment weakens the enemy.  Bottom line he does not understand Asymmetric warfare. He equates it with guerrilla warfare. They are two different things. Anyway its a fascinating video with a look into the Republican mind, with some views that should cause everyone to thinkaboot it.
