Crazy as a Shithouse Rat

The State of Israel is at it again. Two of its soldiers were taken prisoner, and another ten killed, up in the northern part of the country a few days ago. It's not really known who specifically took them, but it doesn't matter; Hezbollah took credit, and offered to exchange them for some of its own prisoners held in Israeli jails.

Although Israel has done these sort of swaps before, that didn't matter. PM Olmert and his cabinet decided to revert to the old knee-jerk reaction that Israel had 20-some years ago, and started bombing the crap out of southern Lebanon and the Beirut Airport, all the while accusing Syria and Iran of being ultimately responsible.

Israel has also been bombing the hummus out of the Hamas-led government in the Gaza Strip over another captured Israeli soldier. Chances are, though, that the fellow's already dead.


The small city of Avon Park, Florida has decided to try and force out all of the illegal aliens in its jurisdiction, which may also cost it the economic impulse and jobs of a planned Wal-Mart Supermegaohmygoditsfuckinghugecenter. Wahhh. I guess the people of Avon Park won't mind if their city remains a putrescent backwater for decades to come, huh?


European Union members have said that they'll be taking Iran to the UN again, this time to explore sanctions. Iran threatens dire consequences. Expect gasoline to hit $4 a gallon by winter.

None of this shit that's happening now makes sense to me. This is about to become a, as Carman would say, "a hella war", and why?

This should be call the WTF War.

Is Israel tag teaming with us and they will be the ones to bomb the shit out of Iran instead of us? Hell, I don't know but none of it bodes well for anyone but the people who make bombs and caskets.

On a scale, how crazy is a shithouse rat? Is it crazier than hell? Crazier than a bat?

Hmm. I'd say, on a craziness scale of 1 to 10:

Bat = 2 (all it does is fly around like a moth, fluttering and squeaking).
Hell = 3 (especially if you read Dante - God created Hell for a reason, and the Eternal Tortures of the Damned are carefully apportioned and managed).
Shithouse Rat = 10 (if you corner a rat in an outhouse, chances are that it has nowhere to run, and will attack and scurry around the walls at waist-height (your waist) until its heart explodes from the stress).

Egads! Note to me, never go into a shithouse without first checking for rats.
