Blackwater in Alaska but why?
Spies and Pies!
Billions of dollars are being diverted into the wanky, sissy, never-gonna-work National Missile Defense ‘system’ and it’s been set up way up yonder in Alaska along with some Blackwater mercenaries sprinkled about who are scarier than the boondoggly installation they’re guarding.
Makes me wonder why Vladimir Putin took such exception (or pretended to, the minx!) to its set up in the Czech Republic and possibly in Poland considering that the system’s effectiveness as a “shield” is little more than a big joke on the American taxpayer.
Actually, We-the-Sheeple have been gifted with quite a comedy repertoire when you consider all the trillions spirited away from the fair use of those who paid them in taxes so that politicians, their colleagues, and friends could embezzle, grift, extort, steal, scam, rob, burgle, five-finger-discount, and then simply print themselves more bucks when coffers run out.
Oh well. On a more positive note, maybe the National Missile Defense system may aid our ever-watchful foreign policy expert, Gov. Sara Palin, in keeping those pesky Russians from stealing those just-baked pies from those Alaskan windowsills.
At least the system might good for something…for pie-lovers such as myself.
Well, if I had my way in this lackluster economic climate there would be a pie cooling on every windowsill, so please answer this poll question Before you wander into the kitchen (you’re really quite suggestible, y’know):
Poll Update Monday 11.17: okay, some joker ticked ‘Mincemeat’ as their favorite pie. Pies are a serious if flakey business and that’s not funny, Y’all. ;p
Poll Update 11.20.08: Chocolate Cream pulls ahead! One vote was cast for ‘Other Pie’…anyone have a recipe for Other Pie?
And last I’ve heard, Blackwater minions haven’t stolen a single pie from Alaskan windowsills…but stay tuned…
