Who will defend Lebanon??? 
"Who will defend Lebanon in case of a new Israeli offensive?" he asked. "The Lebanese army and international troops are incapable of protecting Lebanon," he said, flanked by Lebanese and Hezbollah flags.


That's from Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah. It just begs the question... would Lebanon need defending if Hezbollah didn't go around starting conflicts?

Hmm...

Now to answer his question... wouldn't the Lebanese army defend Lebanon if such defense were needed? As I understand it, they weren't involved in this ordeal because Israel wasn't attacking with the intent to hurt Lebanon but, rather, with the intent to hurt Hezbollah who was using Lebanon as their playground. So really, if Lebanon was in need of defense, it was against Hezbollah making them a target. Seems to me that Israel was actually helping them out in this regard. I don't recall hearing anything about the Lebanese army going in and stopping Hezbollah from keeping the conflict raging.

Maybe that just didn't make the news... but I doubt it.

Time to take over the world. 
So now that I'm a millionaire, who would like to help run my campaign?

NotWeasel for Prime Minister.

Or... rather... NotWeasel for... umm... member of parliament? Stupid political system.

More money than you can shake a stick at. 
Our lottery here has ballooned up to $42 million. That's a lot of money and I fully intend to win it.

For all my concerns about the complete incompetancy of our government, a big chunk of change like that would go a long way toward getting me into office where I can make a go at setting things straight.

I have to wonder though. Is there anyone in office right now who went in wanting to make possitive changes to this country? Is anyone concerned with stopping the misappropriation of taxpayer's money?

If so, what happened? Is the system so corrupt that even those with good intentions end up buried within the beaurocracy and reduced to ineffectual mouthpieces, held off to the side for their lack of political affiliation? Is there really anything that can be done to prevent the eventual slide into a complete collapse of government?

God willing, we'll all get a chance to find out.

A tax on people bad a math, eh? I suppose it's to the benefit of my unrealistic ambitions that I couldn't count apples with an abacus if my life depended on it.

Finally! Weather fit for a weasel! Or Not... even... 
After what feels like an eternity of constant heat, today was absolutely wonderful outside. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and I wasn't a walking puddle of ick.

That's all for today. Enjoying another short week of work.

Wonders of the Human Body 
Last night I found out that my wife was unaware that you can swallow air and make yourself belch.

I demonstrated the ability for a few minutes.

I don't think it elevated my status in her psyche any.
