I just heard this news from an Egyptian friend on the ground:

"Hurghada is now out of petrol. No gas-Station has petrol here! It will start a new way of chaos in Egypt!"

It's not a question of interrupted supply lines.  The supplies themselves are dwindling.

Ya wasn't it weird how everybody was eating and stuff there were no problems right before the great depression. And then all of a sudden everybody was starving. People ran into places where there wasn't a good rooting of the topsoil started farming the hell out of it and caused a dust bowl. I think the bankers got ahold of 25 percent of the farms during that period.

Weird isn't it. You have no idea what monsters these people are.

It's cool. The farms we got we'll have them burn their crops to starve people. And then we'll have our lying ass scribes say it was to stop deflating food prices. Nobody will ever figure it out.

They should have sufficient money to import food via the postal service. $10, $15, not a big deal.

They could fed ex it for just a little bit more. Have it there overnight.

Hamy perhaps you can FedEx some Apple stock certificates over there and they can be used for barter.

Wonder if Ben Shalom of Washington and Ben Ali of ex Tunisia are half brothers. Same father, different mother or vice versa?

They had the same father. His name was Ben Dover.

Saw the footage of an Egyptian architect being interviewed about the plan or direction after the fall of their dictator. He said that he and his countrymen had no idea where the country was headed after Moo Barak was ousted.

This rings a very loud bell for me.

The ragtag protesters don't have a philosophy about what underpins their quest for freedom. They are well justified in their quest but are only reactionary in their behavior.

Perhaps folk in yet to be affected countries had better get a grip on the difference between freedom and liberty. To revert to the same old, same old, post revolution, (as delivered by the so called democracies of the world) just ain't going to solve the leeching, scumbag banksters and politicians from continuing their skimming scams.

Give me liberty or give me death is a philosophical stand. I certainly will not put my body on the line for anything short of that.

Democracy. What a load of socialist and oligarchical driven drivel.

Certainly don't want democracy, dictators for everyone!!!

Look, Government is not the problem, government is necessary.  The problem is a government that's been hi-jacked by the oligarchy because complacent individuals fail at their due-diligence or start to believe drivel about how all government is evil and don't participate.  (Due to their black and white thinking.)  Government is the only thing that stops the wealthy from completely rolling you, so you must make the government represent the people (whatever that means).

Get it?  Wealth + thugs (and/or lawyers)= a very bad Christmas for you.

BTW, the who started the 'lawyers are evil' meme?  My guess is that it wasn't people who employ their services to protect their interests.

Standard script. The muslim brotherhood will sweep in on a platform consisting of meaningless rhetoric and unrealistic socialistic promises, and once elected, turn into the worst kind of "Marxist liberation democratic party".

Of course, this will be bullish for stocks going forward.

Better yet - they use islamic terrorism like the Luxor killings to reduce tourism, which hurts the Egyptian economy, then use the now desperate poor in Egypt to do the dirty work of bringing down the government for them.  They aren't hijacking a revolution, they are manipulating it.

Sadly, I believe you are 100% correct.

Egypt is about to turn into an Islamist hellhole.

They are really powerful. Consider, without this attack, unemployment would be low in Egypt as tourism would have provided so many jobs and people would have in so large numbers to Egypt to recycle their fiat.

They are really, really powerful. A serious threat. Master puppeteers and all.

Do not kid yourself. Clearly defining what is not acceptable behavior is a very strong message. You do not buy 25 ferrari's while we starve. Get it.

Israel will start trucking it across the desert and of be accused of implanting each individual rice and wheat grain with mini Zionist mind control devices..

It's not as if the Saudis have any spare food, or nearly as much spare money as the west views them as having.

Those mummies are about the same like Dried Jerky Beef.

And if the chewing is a bit though for the kids, they can boil them first.


Eating the rich and Jews is also a option, but they should also boil them first.

Ive never tried jews, but there are refereces to using mummies for steam production. Was a huge.enterprise at one point if those references are to be it.

looking at the number of junks I've just received, it seems there are a lot of historians on this blog that don't find it a funney thing to boil precious mummies...




Jeeezzzz.... I didn't know those historians had such a short fuse...

It’s called "Cheeses of Nazareth".
