The Wolfrum name proudly lives on.


Telling Israel not to kidnap U.S. Citizens is Anti-Semitic

June 1, 2010

While Israel fights its newest PR war after it’s attack on an aid flotilla left a dozen or so dead, the U.S. is showing that friends in high places can be quite helpful. First, the Obama Administration has taken a stand from the rest of the planet by not condemning the acts. And second, it seems that Israelis can even manage to kidnap American citizens without getting any reprimand from Washington.

From CNN:

As many as nine Americans may have been aboard the Gaza relief flotilla attacked by the Israeli military, and are now being held by Israeli authorities, a State Department official said Monday.

The official, who had no details about their identities, conditions or whereabouts, said U.S. consular officials were expecting to interview the Americans on Tuesday.

Separately, Jonathan Slevin, a spokesman for the activist group Free Palestine Movement, said a group of five Americans participated in the flotilla, including former U.S. Ambassador Edward Peck.

Slevin said the Americans boarded a ship called the Sfendoni in Athens, Greece. He said there had been no communication with the Americans since the flotilla was intercepted by the Israelis.

While we hope for the best for those in Israeli custody, don’t expect the U.S. to condemn Israel for the act. After all, nothing is more anti-Semitic than telling a nation not to kidnap your citizens.


That sinking feeling in Guatemala

June 1, 2010

Well, at least we now know what digging a hole to China looks like:

From Gizmodo:

This sinkhole appeared last sunday in a street intersection of Ciudad de Guatemala. …

… A sinkhole is a natural depression caused by the removal of underground soil by water. Usually, it happens when the substrate is formed by limestone, carbonate rock, salt beds or any other rock that is easily eroded by water streams. The process could be slow, but sometimes the land just cracks open without notice. In this case, it happened suddenly, swallowing an entire house. The cause: Massive underground water torrents created by tropical storm Agatha.

No word on whether or not those that believe the world will end in 2012 are gloating about this incident.


Finally, one for the goats

May 17, 2010

Occasionally, karma kicks in for good people. Such as this woman who rescues goats:

A Wal-Mart employee who won $2 million on a scratch-off lottery ticket has a lucky goat named Bucky to thank.

Beverly Evens of Anderson, Calif., rescued Bucky nine years ago. He had been beaten and abused, but Evens nursed him back to health, even bottle-feeding him. Since then Evens has taken in more than 40 rescue goats, Sacramento’s CBS13 reported Wednesday.

Evens finds her goats adorable but expensive. Their daily diet of hay — as well the extra fencing she needs to install to keep curious goats from wandering into trouble — puts a strain on her paychecks from Wal-Mart.

The needs of Bucky and his goat pals were on Evens’ mind one day when she stopped at a mini-mart for coffee and a lottery ticket. There on a scratcher she won $2 million over 25 years, beating the 1 in 1.2 million odds.

The moral of this story? If you want to save goats while working at Wal-Mart, you better win the lottery.

Gizmodo vs. Goldman Sachs

If there’s one thing we can say for sure, it’s this: Those Gizmodo guys will get a much worse punishment for having that iPhone than anyone at Goldman Sachs will get for bilking their investors.

Angelina Jolie admits to affair with Panda

February 4, 2010

Washington D.C. has gone nutty over a couple pandas heading to China, while the mainstream media is still on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Watch. I guess reporting on Haiti, Unemployment, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, etc., has become too much of a bummer.

If only Jolie would admit to a lurid affair with one of the pandas. The entirety of the mainstream media would implode right before our very eyes.


Following the money to a lousy Health Insurance Reform Bill

January 13, 2010

Just in case anyone was wondering why President Barack Obama has treated the health insurance industry with kid gloves while trying to “reform” the industry, this should explain something:

A new figure, based on an exclusive analysis created for Raw Story by the Center for Responsive Politics, shows that President Obama received a staggering $20,175,303 from the healthcare industry during the 2008 election cycle, nearly three times the amount of his presidential rival John McCain. McCain took in $7,758,289, the Center found.

Change is great, but it will always be the dollars that drive U.S. policy.


Sarah Palin & Fox News: One Heartbeat Away

January 12, 2010

With the announcement of her deal with Fox News, Sarah Palin is now one Glenn Beck stroke, aneurysm, or cardiac event from being the most* batshit crazy person on TV.


* Media Version. Overall, Charlie Sheen is still the most batshit and likely to commit a violent felony at some point.

Sources: Underpants Terrorist Kid printed ad in NY Times promising to attack a U.S. plane

January 7, 2010

Ok, maybe not quite that over the top, but the Intelligence Industry really dropped the ball on the Underpants Terrorist kid. And by “dropped the ball,” I mean “Put thousands in needless risk.” I do expect there to be attempted attacks that will get past authorities somehow, but this is sounding quite abysmal.

Aside from that, Yemen.
