Mid-Week Post

Where there is fire, smoke will also appear...

We don't have to belong to the UN :

Observers were left wondering whether it was opposite day at the United Nations Tuesday, when the international body elected some of the world's most notorious human-rights abusers to its Human Rights Council.

China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Cuba were among the six countries most recently voted in to the UNHRC, where they now join other countries with dubious human-rights records, including Pakistan, the Congo and the United Arab Emirates.

President Guen-Hye Park has been attacked before but this shot across the bow from North Korea's Fattest takes the kimchi:

Park Geun Hye again let loose a whole string of rubbish malignantly slandering the DPRK, urging it to "dismantle its nukes" and settle "human rights issues" during her recent trips to various countries of Europe. ...

What she uttered during her recent European trips clearly proved that "summit talks" and the like touted by her were nothing but sheer hypocrisy and her ulterior motive is to stand in confrontation with the DPRK to the end.

An adage says once you get a bad habit, it will stay with you. Park likes to speak ill of compatriots in foreign countries, forgetful of "presidency." She looks like a meddlesome countrywoman fond of backbiting others, lost to shame.

Moreover, she changed her dress several times a day and made flattery towards others, uttering some words in their languages like a parrot. She was so disgraceful to behave so.
She behaved like a stateswoman defending her First World nation with competence and vigor. Perhaps she should spend money on a ski resort while her people starve?


Oh wow! Really?

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has changed his tune on mandatory minimum sentences several times this week, most recently settling on the stance that, in general, he favours "less crime" achieved through being "a lot smarter on our approach," though he's a little hazy on the details.

There are douchebags who would vote in the intellectually shallow Trudeau tomorrow were it possible.

Of course he did:

Accused killer Luka Rocco Magnotta entered fresh not-guilty pleas on Wednesday ahead of a highly anticipated trial that is scheduled to begin in 10 months.

Speaking of disgusting people:

A new guide from the government of P.E.I. is telling parents that it is “natural and healthy” for young children to “touch the ‘private parts’ of familiar adults” and to look at “nude pictures on the Internet, videos, magazines”. Parents are also being told that they should not discourage their children from masturbating. 

The grooming of children for perverts starts in the schools. Read the above and tell me I'm wrong.

This wouldn't happen if you paid them well from the beginning:

Bangladesh police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at garment workers who stitch clothes for Western retailers during clashes on Tuesday as demonstrations against low wages intensified, an officer said.

Some 40,000 workers downed tools and took to the streets in the Ashulia export zone on the outskirts of Dhaka for the second day, forcing around 200 factories to suspend production, police and factory owners said.

The workers are demanding a wage hike to $100 per month instead of the rise to $67 approved last week by the Minimum Wage Board after rounds of meetings with industry, unions and government representatives.

I didn't think Jews were allowed to remain alive in Afghanistan:

Zabulon Simintov always removes his kippah, the skullcap worn by Jewish men, before entering his cafe in a dilapidated building that also houses Afghanistan's last synagogue.

"Let me take off my cap, otherwise people will think something bad about me," Simintov said cheerfully as he descended grime-caked stairs to the ground-floor cafe.

In his 50s, Simintov is the last known Afghan Jew to remain in the country. He has become something of a celebrity over the years and his rivalry with the next-to-last Jew, who died in 2005, inspired a play.

Mindful of Afghanistan's extremely conservative Muslim culture, Simintov tries not to advertise his identity to protect the Balkh Bastan or Ancient Balkh kebab cafe he opened four years ago, naming it after a northern Afghan province.

(Sidebar: there's no "conservative" Islamism; there is only Islam as Mohammad wanted it practised making Mr. Simintov's survival astounding).

Some happy news:

One of the strongest Typhoons in recorded history swept through the central Philippines killing at least 10,000 people and dislocating as many as 500,000 people. Amid the widespread despair emerged a rare moment of joy when 21-year old Emily Ortega gave birth to a baby girl. Her birth was miraculous because her mother was in an evacuation centre and had to swim and cling to a post to survive before she found safety at Tacloban airport. “She is my miracle. I had thought I would die with her still inside me when high waves came and took us all away,” Ortega told AFP
