It’s sad that a certain Irishman born in the US of A, with a show on Fox News, had to say she killed herself. I sincerely think this wonderful woman had no intention to die. I don’t understand addictions since I’m only addicted to being happy and not caring about those who try to make me miserable. I find it sad she fell in love with someone who didn’t inspire her to better herself and that she kept falling back into the company of those who enabled her destructive behavior.
Right now I’m watching The 54th Annual Grammy Awards. So far Bruno Mars, Rihanna and Coldplay, Maroon 5, The Beach Boys, and… We Could’ve Had it All by Adele have entertained me well. The Adele Song is a commercial for Target sung by a girl with a group of eight girls on a bus. Catchy tune and ad. Fans who know Adele best, know the best place to buy her album. Also the Foo Fighters’ acceptance speech about not being perfect and the human element of making music and learning your craft was given a standing ovation by their peers. But 100 minutes into the show I got up to make my tea after listening to The Civil Wars. What a sexy, sultry woman! This and the Decemberists are groups I’ve been neglecting. I feel as if though I’ve been asleep through a revolution.
Taylor Swift. I drown her out with the microwave. There is something I don’t quite like about this pretty woman. I’m only imagining this but I think this is the type of woman who seduces boys, just to see if she can take them away from other girls. Yes, I think she’s a talented bitch. Some day I’ll be singing this at the Grammy’s, And all you’re going to be is mean, Why do you have to be so mean, All you are is mean, A liar and pathetic, and alone in life, and mean, Why do you have to be…(pause) so mean?! A standing ovation and the look of surprise she always uses to accept her loving fan’s applause.
“Up next… Katie Perry performs, and Adele takes the Grammy stage to sing, then an amazing production number by Nicky Minaj everyone will be talking about tomorrow. Still to come Glenn Campbell’s honored and takes the Grammy stage with the Band Perry and Blake Shelton and a first ever Grammy Dance Mash Up (?) featuring Chris Brown, David Getta, Lil Wayne, Dead Mouse, and Foo Fighters.”
As I steep my tea I re-listen this banjo strumming pale beauty’s song. Is this about being bullied or about being a bully, using the media to propagate her hatred? I’m not sure, since I’m not really acquainted with her.
I just opened today’s rag and on the third page is a famous ass. Jennifer Lopez. J.Lo is ‘red’y for love. Wearing a red dress and exhibiting her famous derriere in Vogue’s first digital edition is an older woman who is fighting to stay young and relevant. “I don’t feel older, and I don’t feel like I look it, either, so I am just acting the same way I have always acted,” she tells the mag. Jennifer, stop fooling yourself and be yourself. You are looking older and soon your youthful beauty will dissipate. Only Marilyn Monroe and Jim Morrison and others who couldn’t live to be old will always be remembered in their youth.
Yesterday I watched most of the 84th Academy Awards hosted by a more feminine looking Billy Crystal. He was good taking jabs at the Chapter 11 Theater. Being that Kodak has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, I believe he was not allowed to use the name…Kodak Theatre. The acceptance speech by the director of the Foreign Language Film, A Separation, was moving. Politicians want war, the people don’t! was the message of his acceptance speech.
Continuing to see and drink my cold tea, I know about Nicky Minaj’s production. I have not been quite asleep through a revolution. I was surprised she was allowed to do such crap. I guess it’s O.K. to attack Christian beliefs in today’s culture, but it’s politically incorrect to attack others who enjoy beheading Americans.
I enjoy petting Torrey who always comes to my side to see me write. He lies down, carelessly putting his tail between the coasters of my chair. One day I’m going to forget he’s there and he’s never going to lie by my side ever again. I turn and pet him with my foot. He meows in approval.
I’m now watching live television. Today’s headlines are not that different from last month’s. A soldier in Afghanistan has massacred women, children, and men. Another American who has blackened our integrity. If this soldier isn’t prosecuted or given court martial, I will lose hope in our future as a country that upholds the Constitution and the Separation of Powers.
Till later since I still have to finish watching the Grammy’s and the Oscar’s and the Australian Formula One Practice session recorded on the DVR this morning at 1:30 A.M. This is another Australian Formula One race I will miss, since I don’t like taking long trips in metal tubes.

In his tone, at least, Mr. Obama is working to reassure Israel. In an interview published on
Friday, Mr. Obama reiterated his pledge to prevent Iran from acaquiring a nuclear weapon —
with force, if necessary — and ruled out a policy of accepting but seeking to contain a
nuclear-armed Iran. The Israeli government, he said, recognizes that “as president of the United States, I don’t bluff.”
The White House’s choice of interviewer — Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for
the magazine The Atlantic — was carefully calculated. Mr. Goldberg is closely read among
Jews in America; in 2010, he wrote an article exploring the situations under which Israel would attack Iran.
American Jews are anything but monolithic. More dovish groups, like J Street, are trying to
make a case against a pre-emptive Israeli strike. But for the next few days, Aipac will set the tone for an intense debate over the Iranian nuclear threat.

“This is no ordinary mission. You all read the Bible. You know the history of our people. Our people have overcome the agony of the holocaust. We’ve survived wars in 1948, 1956, 1967, the War of Attrition in 1970, and the Yum Kippur War. And mow we are faced with the greatest threat in the long history of Israel—annihilation and destruction of our country with atomic bombs by a madman terrorist who cares nothing for human life. We must not allow him to achieve the ability to build the bomb that could destroy us. That’s what this mission this afternoon is all about. Protecting our country. The future of Israel rests on your skill and ability to destroy that nuclear reactor. You must be successful—or we as a people are doomed. This is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. If we are to live by the sword, let us see that it’s kept strong in the hand rather than at our throat.” Chief of Staff General Raful Eitan who had just lost a son, was addressing the soldiers who were going on a mission, on Sunday, June 7, 1981 to destroy the nuclear reactor in Al-Tuwaitha, IRAQ
One of the pilots on this successful mission later died when the space shuttle Columbia broke over the vastness of Texas as it reentered the atmosphere. Ilan Ramon was the mission’s youngest pilot and first Israeli Astronaut.
The irony of this story is that Israel is now concerned about the vulnerability of its nuclear reactor. They are considering deactivating the reactor to prevent an attack that would contaminate a vast amount of land if it happens to be a successful attack.
Here we have another American who decided to test the paranoid Islamic Republic of Iran. While in their custody since August 2011, Iran lost yet another nuclear asset. The assassination in Tehran of Mr. Roshan, a Chemical Engineer with a magnetic bomb attached to his car. He was the fourth Iranian nuclear scientist killed in two years, a period in which the West has intensified covert actions against Iran’s nuclear program.
According to U.S. officials in Washington, Israel has played a central role in a series of attacks on Iranian scientists. Computer viruses, explosions, and assassinations have hindered Iran’s aspirations to have a nuclear reactor online.
Ironically, Israel is considering decommissioning its nuclear facility in Dimona. A facility that was commenced quietly, without public notice, early in 1958 near the ancient city of Beersheba in the heart of the Negev desert. Their fear is that a successful airstrike would cause a nuclear disaster.
Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, a former Marine from Flint, Michigan was convicted of spying for the Central Intelligence Agency, C.I.A. by the government of Iran. Mr. Hekmati’s background, his Iranian heritage and the linguistics work he did for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, might help explain why the authorities in Iran had him arrested while he was visiting Iran for the first time.
He is now sitting on death row in an Iranian prison. A pawn in a conflict of words between the United States and Iran.
A’jad’s Latin tango

Even as his government back home was sentencing to death an American citizen it outrageously claims is a spy, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad embarked on a five-day visit to four of Latin America’s most anti-American regimes: Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Cuba.
Finally agreeing to a U.N. Visit, Iran says it’s willing to discuss its nuclear ambitions. Iran has always claimed its nuclear activities are peaceful and under the purview of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The United Nations nuclear agency team will visit Teheran on January 28, 2012.
This quest for nuclear power is similar to Saddam Hussein’s quixotic,delusional decision to blackmail the French into building Iraq a nuclear reactor. Before going online, the reactor was destroyed by the Israeli government in one of the most daring raids ever. Read “Raid on the Sun” by Rodger W. Claire for a better account of this successful military air strike.

…stated. “The era of imperialism and global arrogance are exhausted.”
While in Ecuador, Mr. Ahmadinejad received a bear hug from President Rafael Correa. These two have met previously. Mr. Correa visited Tehran, Iran in 2008.
The two dined at the presidential palace and later stepped out to wave to hundreds of Ecuadorians from its balcony,where an Iranian flag was displayed.

For two hours the leaders discussed world events and declared their two countries to be allies fighting on the same front. These irritants, Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have been the United States of America’s hemorrhoids.
Castro has continued to write essays on world events and one of his themes has been warning the world of a possible U.S./Israeli vs. Iran which could possibly lead to nuclear Armageddon.
Iran doesn’t share Fidel’s apocalyptic end. They assume the United States of America will never dare attack.
Iran’s assessment of the West is way of the mark. Bear in mind the mysterious sabotage of Iran’s nuclear program and the recent assassination of a procurement officer. Being a Chemical Engineer and working in an Iranian nuclear project is not conducive to a long life.

Visiting Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicarauga. Is Colombia being isolated by these rendezvous? Will he be welcomed in Cuba by the Castros? I’m still not too sure which way the Americas are leaning?
