cur-mud-geon: anyone who hates hypocrisy and pretense and has the temerity to say so; anyone with the habit of pointing out unpleasant facts in an engaging and humorous manner
The world of politics looks to be almost complete with the announcement yesterday that ‘The Donald’ is going to form an exploratory committee looking to a possible run for the Presidency. Donald Trump has once again apparently decided to take the plunge…at least into the wading pool of politics.
President Barack Obama is probably not too excited about the victory of Benjamin Netanyahu given his obvious dislike for the man and for his policies, and given his tacit or stronger involvement in attempting to keep that victory from happening. That Netanyahu will now form the next government of Israel with a coalition that gives him iron-clad power for some time to come has to have been a bitter pill to be swallowed by our President.
Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu is running second in the polling for re-election to the position of Prime Minister of Israel. It is difficult to imagine what an Israel without Netanyahu in control would look like. His opponent is decidedly less pro-Israel and is decidedly more pro-Palestinian.
If you like Pi, today is your day. Today is Pi day. Pi is that mathematical thingy many of us learned a long, long time ago. It is the number 3.1415……. and on to infinity. Those first five digits obviously tie into today’s date March 14, 2015. The next time this will occur is March 14, 2115 and that is a day most of us will not be present to see.
