Your Weekend of Weekends.

UnkaWillbur - May 26, 2017

Here' some links to nosh on, to start of your weekend. I hope everyone's weekend is great; me, myself, I'm planning on jumping out of a perfectly…

    On my way out the door. Will check out the links later. Thanks, Unka. Oink!

    • Edwin

      I hope you have a nice day. (Maybe period 6 will be cancelled for an event in the auditorium.)

      • notisaidthepig

        Thanks. No such luck. It got a little hairy there with period 6 today. They were sort of good until the last ten minutes when they started throwing coins around the room. I nearly blew a gasket. It got real quiet then. Unfortunately, I didn’t see the culprits; they always take action when my back is turned and with nearly 40 of them in there it’s hard to tell what’s going on sometimes. But I found out who. Teachers have their ways! Went straight to the Dean after school and this will be nipped in the bud come tomorrow. (fingers crossed!)

          Put a mirror on your blackboard/whiteboard. Video them.

    John Yoo has emerged from his burrow. Six more years of totalitarianism.

      It’s tough to make me laugh out loud. And that made me laugh out loud. 🙂

    • John Yoo should hang by the neck, until dead, dead, dead.

      • Dosido3

        Right? But he’s still welcome to teach at Cal!

    The only person whose impeachment opinion matters is Nancy Off the Table Pelosi.

    .Israeli Knesset set to vote on ‘unconstitutional’ Palestinian land appropriation bill

    The Israeli Knesset on Monday night is scheduled to vote on the so-called “Regularization Bill,” which, if passed, will appropriate hundreds of hectares of Palestinian land in the occupied West Bank by legalizing — under Israeli law — thousands of settlement units built on privately owned Palestinian land.

    .Is The Trump Administration Already Over?

    Hopes for the Trump administration are not burning brightly. Trump’s military chief, Gen. Mattis, is turning out to be true to his “mad dog” nickname. He has just declared that Iran “is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world”. Where is the evidence for this ignorant accusation? There is none.

    If truth be spoken, there are only two terrorist countries in the world: Israel and the US. Israel terrorizes Palestinians and has done so for about 70 years. The US terrorizes the rest of the world.
