Seig Heil, Benedict!

December 23, 2008

I see der Fuhrer der Pope has launched another hysterical attack on homosexuals. Shades of his native country’s Nazi past.

I’m always deeply suspicious of people who are so overtly and rabidly anti-homosexual.  Benedict’s latest rant reminds me of American bible-thumper Ted Haggard who turned out to be gay himself.

Pope Hypocrite would be better employed rooting out the real evil of child sexual abuse within his own organisation.  Of course, he probably doesn’t think it is as sinful as homosexuality.

Terrorist mice

Kamikaze terrorist mice launch attack!

Mice may be responsible for a blaze that killed nearly 100 cats at an animal shelter near the Canadian city of Toronto, officials say

Looks like Jerry wins again.

This reminds me

December 20, 2008

This story reminds me of a Christian Brother I knew in CBC Cork many years ago.

An Egyptian mathematics teacher is due to go on trial accused of beating an 11-year-old pupil to death because he did not do his homework.

After using a ruler, Haitham Nabeel Abdelhamid, 23, allegedly took the boy outside the classroom and hit him violently in his stomach.

Happy days, indeed!

Mary Harney should resign or be fired

December 1, 2008

No, not because of wash-and-blow-dry-gate or piano-gate, but because she has failed as Health Minister.

Same to you, Mary

Same to you, Mary

Harney created the HSE with the promise that the new body would make our health system more efficient.  It hasn’t.  It has simply created a new level of bureaucracy. Even worse, it has created a buffer for the Minister to hide behind when problems arise.  Strike one.

The Ppars fiasco happened on Harney’s watch.  Strike two.

Three years ago, (or was it four?), Harney declared the situation in our A&Es to be a ‘national emergency’ and promised decisive action.  In the interim, nothing has changed.  Strike three.

At the last election, the people of this country utterly repudiated the party Harney represented – to the point where it no longer exists.  Harney has absolutely no political mandate to be in Cabinet.  The only reason she is there at all is because none of the Cute Hoors wants to touch Health with a barge-pole.

Harney told us we should choose between Boston and Berlin.  What she has given us is Baghdad.
