Shore leave

This may sound odd but I am had the most wonderful time at a Greek diner. I ordered Mousaka and a Gyro but Drummaster ordered a burger. There are no classic Greek Diners in St Albans. I may drop by Popeyes before I return. I also found Syrian cheese that tastes softer than feta.

On the way down there are spots with limited radio reception. I heard the dreaded Harrigan song that my buddy Neil sings off key. I switch the station and next station has the same song H-A double RR. I heard the dreaded Harrigan song four times on the way down. I also got to hear Carol Miller who was every teens idea of the dream woman. She was the sultry voice of WPLJ and now she is relegated to late nights. After Mark Levin WABC is a wasteland I do not like Jerry Agar.

I am having a heart attack over my neice's report on Algeria that claims Berbers are invaders and Islam was spreas peacably.

Whose filling her head with that crap? Has she been reading textbooks edited by Susan Douglass?

How old is your niece?

I remember Carol Miller. She's still on the air? Wow.

If you're even slightly reminiscent about NY, come and see the photos from today's 'Peace & Justice' parade.

Carol Miller and Shelley Sunstein from the old WPLJ are on 104.3.
Every 40 something male in my locale was in love with her as a teen.

I will check out the photos after i sort out the mess. I snowed 20'' in town and there is construction equipment moving 13' high piles.


AOW

My neice is a dope. She read me her report and I fell out of my chair. She told me she got the information of the web but couldn't remember where. I showed her where to get the real information and she ignored me. Then she wonders why she gets F. This was self induced stupidity.

beak,
Do you remember Meg Ryan? I'm sure you know Vince Skelsa and Pete Fornatell.. trying to remember the rest.

Lots of icy snow still line the streets here too. Please drive safely out there.

AOW, could we have your credentials making you competent to speak on the history of Algeria?

Just curious. If your students wrote a paper with just the opposite point of view can you give me a cogent reason why someone shouldn't react with "Who filled the kid's head with that nonsense?".

I think I had mentioned this once before that Algeria has renounced its Berber origins and claimed Arab ancestry.
Another in a continuing rewriting of history.

If she goes to public school, she'll get an "A" beak. They only accept pc answers.

I remember Meg Ryan but the rest is fuzzy. Carol Miller was the dream woman of every rock and roll fan in the tri- state area.

Ducky

Berbers are the indigenous people of North Africa. The person who would get an F is you. Arabs are not indigenous to Israel either Jews are. I guess if Fanon didn't write about it it fails to register.

The bulk of historians do believe Islam spread peacfully to Algeria with the conversion of the Berber ruler.

I notice you waste no time bringing up Israel. It's obvious that you believe it should be involved in all conversations and it is just as obvious that your bigotry clouds your judgement.

beakerkin said...

Ducky

The bulk of the historians forget that there were Jewish and Christian Berbers. There were plenty of fights and there is a genuine ethnic conflict going on now.

Berbers unlike Pseudostinians are genuine indigenous people whom the left spits on.Where is the Berber State and compare their case to the Fakestinians. The Pseudostinians are an insult to genuine indigenous people many of whom suffer while the left perpetuates fraud.

The Berbers revolted against Arab Colonial hegemony. One thing apparent from reading about Kurds and Yezidi the transition to Islam was not peaceful as you assume. Ignorance of genuine history goes with being a communist.

Duck,
If your students wrote a paper with just the opposite point of view...

Here's how I grade essays:

1. Prove the thesis statement with credible sources. Get an "A."

2. If you find evidence which contradicts your thesis statement, change the statement or include that evidence.

Policy debate is different, of course. One keeps uses only the evidence supporting that side of the debate (Affirmative or Negative). BUT know what the evidence is for the opposite side so as to counter it.

--------------------------------

Credentials? I don't claim the kind of credentials you're talking about. But I also don't base my opinions on only one source or type of source. And I can read and research--extensively, if needed.

I await evidence of YOUR "credentials."
