Egypt protesting European embassies?

Did they just get the memo that we get mistreated there?

Egypt has protested to European embassies in Cairo
about what it has described as the mistreatment of Egyptians applying
for entry visas.

The Egyptian foreign ministry said the embassies were applying
visa rules arbitrarily, and not treating Egyptians with respect and
dignity.

You know, I would be all for it, but the egyptian government, of all people, complaining that someone is not treating Egyptians with respect and dignity? We 7eyat deen omokom? That's like Bill Clinton scolding John Edwards for lying to the American people.

Ehh..Irony is dead! 

But I thought all taxes were sinful?

Britian is implementing Sin taxes:

Many Britons were resigning themselves to more puritanical lifestyles
Thursday as they faced the prospect of "sin taxes" that will increase
the cost of alcohol, cigarettes, gas-guzzling cars and, potentially,
plastic bags.

Basically all of life's little pleasures that may give your sorry existence a chance to have a reprieve from your shitty every daily life. Oh yeah, and Plastic bags. Hmm… Yeah, I can see where they are coming from..wait, no..I don't. Plastic bags are sinful? When did that happen? Did I miss a day in school or something?

The Labour Party government is hoping that hiking taxes on booze will help curb Britain's binge-drinking culture.

Ahh, so they are doing this for the good of their citizens, even if they disagree? Ahh, those great guys at Labor, they know what's best for you , to the degree that you won;t even be given a choice in the matter. And here I thought it was just a ploy to collect obscene new amounts in tax money to waste and plunder! Silly me!

Invade Germany now

Their army is..not doing very well..

Berlin – German soldiers are overweight, smoke too much and do not
engage in enough sports, according to a report published Tuesday by the
parliamentary commissioner for the defence force. "Male and female
soldiers are too fat, partake little in sports and pay too little
attention to what they eat," Reinhold Robbe said in his official report
to parliament. He called the situation "shocking."

In the 18-29
age-group, military personnel are in worse condition than their
civilian counterparts, with 40 per cent of soldiers overweight against
35 per cent in the general population, according to Robbe. Despite the widespread availability of sports equipment in the army, more than 20 per cent don't engage in any sports at all. Robbe also noted that an alarming 70 per cent of military personnel were smokers.

Bismark must be rolling in his grave! 

Italian Judges are bored

They have to be. I mean, their "men no adjustee their junk in public" ruling was absurd enough, now, the italian courts have given women who cheat on their men a license to lie.

Italy's highest appeal court has ruled that
married Italian women who commit adultery are entitled to lie about it
to protect their honour.

The court gave its landmark ruling after hearing the
case of a 48-year-old woman, convicted of giving false testimony to
police by denying she had lent her mobile phone to her lover.

The appeal court did not agree that she had broken the law.

It said bending the truth was justified to conceal extra-marital relationships.

he he he he he! Allright! 

Sarkozy and the Holocaust

The Frenchies are not happy with his newest educational proposal to teach 10 year olds stories of 10 year old jewish kids who were killed in the holocaust. Now, yes, I can see how many people could find this distasteful on the ground of the children's age, but one has to wonder if the age argument applies anymore. I mean, no one would've said anything if this was taught to 12 year olds, and since 10 is the new 12 (goddamn you growth hormones and mentally stimulating technology),I am not sure that it's problematic on the grounds of age. It is, however, problematic from the view of indoctrination. Sure, Anti-semitism is on the rise in France, but is this really the best way to combat it?
