Baltic Face-off: The US is protesting that one of their spy planes (RC-135) flying over the Baltic Sea and spying on Russia was subjected to acrobatics (a barrel roll) by a Russian fighter jet (Su-27). That a peaceful plane going about its normal spying duties be threatened by irresponsible aerobatics is quite shocking.
Socialist elitism: The lower house in Brazil voted by a two-thirds majority to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Dilma Rousseff, who is the darling of her Worker’s Party. She now faces a vote in the Senate in early May where a simple majority could set off formal impeachment hearings. The political maneuvering by those opposed to worker’s enjoying some of the fruits of power is quite shocking.
Saudi demands rejected by Iran: After starting the oil wars by recklessly increasing their oil output over the last 18 months, Saudi Arabia now wants all oil producers to freeze production. The Iranians who are ramping up their production and their exports after years of sanctions, refused to listen and indicated (though they were not even present) their intention to keep increasing their production at a meeting of oil producers. This irresponsible behaviour by Iran when Saudi Arabia and other innocent oil producers are facing economic difficulties is quite shocking.
Speaking in tongues is a dangerous pastime: It could only happen in the US. “A college student who came to the United States as an Iraqi refugee was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight in California earlier this month after another passenger became alarmed when she heard him speaking Arabic.” The airlines made no comment. It is an absolute right to refuse service to anybody (except if they are black, or too fat, or female, or gay, or transgender, or a politician) and it is quite shocking that the airline could be criticised for an exercise of this right.
A christian God may be gay or female or transgender or black but he is certainly not male. It all makes sense if Mary had IVF and was just the surrogate mother of Jesus. A straight, male, god? Shocking.
Monica Lewinsky is still being subjected to public shaming while her boss at the time Bill Clinton, gets away with “murder”. He has been trashing Obama lately but Obama is still supporting Hillary.
