God to Jewish People:

I will give you my Torah, and the land of milk and honey!

Jews: 

Awesome!  Is there a catch?

God:

The neighbors.

Garrison Keilor,, Liberate from liberalism
« Reply #203 on: August 01, 2023, 06:30:18 AM »
Humorist Keilor writes of leaving Minnesota for NYC and retirement.  I'm not sure if this is funny, but he is a good writer and story teller.

They managed to find a judge who has already opined on the subject. Wouldn't a neutral judge be better? And how about a venue where he could find a jury of his peers?

Quote from Clarice Feldman, someone well worth following on FB:

Gaza reaches net zero:  JUST IN - Blackout in Gaza after sole power station stops working as fuel runs out.

If Hamas announced Biden stole the election the NYT would face the dilemma of a lifetime.

Plan B
« Reply #216 on: October 22, 2023, 06:02:24 AM »
Grim humor, though its underlying accuracy is telling:

A hostile reporter demanded that an Israeli General explain why Israel’s response to the Hamas atrocities wasn’t proportionate? The general responded: “We asked for volunteers, but none of our soldiers were willing to rape and kill women, torture children and adults, murder non-combatants, or kidnap people and use them for human shields, so we had to come up with another plan.”

"Proportionate" response
« Reply #218 on: October 22, 2023, 07:23:02 AM »
Yes, "telling." 

"...none of our soldiers were willing to rape and kill women, torture children and adults, murder non-combatants, or kidnap people and use them for human shields, so we had to come up with another plan.."

Humor aside, they are supposed to come up with a disproportionate response, punitive and preventive of things like this.  There aren't many responses possible that are worse than what happened.

The stated plan seems right.  Eliminate the ability to do anything like that again, whatever it takes.

Indeed, Doug, and it is again telling many in the press embrace some sort of tit for tat parallelism as the preferred response to an unprovoked massacre. Their understanding of military strategy is no better than their understanding of atmospheric (or any kind) of science.

Crafty, trust you know this is a fictional exchange as I understand it.

Mark Levin making this point numerous times

I would like to give credit for this to Mark Levin who said the exact same thing 1 - 2 weeks ago
on radio show - I often listen to the podcasts of the show.

Of course, I don't know if he said this first or also "lifted it" from somewhere else.

Unintended humor is still humor, right?

"Destroying Hamas will only radicalize them even more."
Periodic reminder that - by far, without exception, and it's not even close - the most irritating part of contemporary political discourse is the ubiquitous sensation of being condescended to by idiots.

The Swiss Champ of Sophistry*

2nd post:

Thank goodness for climate change! It is the Swiss Army knife of inane explanation, and the Bee puts it to good use:

*For those who don’t know the Champ is a Swiss Army knife that has so many functions it functions poorly if it functions at all. My dad owned one. About the dumbest knife ever: https://www.victorinox.com/us/en/Products/Swiss-Army-Knives/Medium-Pocket-Knives/Swiss-Champ/p/1.6795

Gazalighting
« Reply #235 on: January 27, 2024, 06:56:38 PM »
Found on the web:

Gazalighting

Gaza-lighting /verb Psychological manipulation where one who commits atrocities uses the response to gain sympathy for their actions.

Example: Bob kidnapped a baby and then complained when he was arrested.

Bob is gazalighting.

That example does not communicate the gist of the idea for me, but the term, though witty and punny, strikes me as one not likely to gain traction.
