When Did The Swiss Become Idiots?

Category: Opinion,Travel — jerry @ 12:17 pm

Yo, Switzerland! Can I vote on whether the religious symbol on your flag is offensive?

From THE GUARDIAN:

The Swiss are to decide this weekend whether to ban minarets on mosques, in what is in effect the first direct vote in a European country on Islam and the practices of Muslims.

The controversial referendum on Sunday, accompanied by a prohibition campaign denounced as racist and in violation of human rights, is the latest tussle in Europe over the limits of multiculturalism and immigrant lifestyles.

Pushed by anti-immigrant rightwing populists, it has triggered months of debate in a country that uses direct democracy for single-issue politics. The referendum has turned into much more than a vote on architecture and urban planning.

“The minaret has got nothing to do with religion. It’s a symbol of political power, a prelude to the introduction of sharia law,” argued Ulrich Schlüer, of the rightwing Swiss People’s party, an architect of the campaign….[Rest of article]

I Want A Goat (Warning: Naughty Words)

Category: Travel — jerry @ 5:48 am

Hey, this sounds like a worthy charity. For twenty bucks, you can donate a goat to a needy family.

To get a little (shocking!) attention, someone put together this spoof based on the (shocking!) song “I’m On A Boat”. Enjoy, unless naughty words offend you. (If so, you’re visiting the wrong blog):

I believe you would find Reverend Huckabee on board with this kind of thinking also.

Gee, do you think it could effect their foreign policy?

Happy Thanksgiving: “All Things Dull & Ugly”

Category: Movies/TV,Music — jerry @ 12:01 pm

All things dull and ugly,
All creatures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.
Each little snake that poisons,
Each little wasp that stings,
He made their brutish venom,
He made their horrid wings.
All things sick and cancerous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dangerous,
The Lord God made them all.
Each nasty little hornet,
Each beastly little squid,
Who made the spikey urchin,
Who made the sharks, He did.
All things scabbed and ulcerous,
All pox both great and small,
Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
The Lord God made them all.
AMEN.

Thank you, Monty Python!
