Netanyahu as Prime Minister

How many times do we have to post this in this thread and I have to remind folks:



The Knesset still has to vote on the new coalition, which controversially includes an Arab-Israeli party. That vote might not happen until June 14 (could be sooner) and I don't trust Bibi for the next 10 days to not come up with a strategy to dismantle this coalition. 

We've been here before.

Ok..but we are getting closer!?

I do think he will be back

As much as I loathe him he is a great politician..maybe the best I have seen

I remember watching him on PBS MacNeil Lehrer in the 1980s when he was Israel’s Ambassador to the UN.. I could totally see him going places then

I'm not sure if she is true crazy, or showbiz burn out crazy . . . but it is a shame that Sinead can't have a career that is like her two Masterpiece albums of Throw Down Your Arms and Theology.

Artists, are so weird.

Losing General Lee suffers another defeat in Arlington


The Arlington County Board said at its Saturday meeting that it plans to vote next month to rename Lee Highway for abolitionist John Langston, who also was the first Black person to be elected to Congress from Virginia.

Netanyahu as Prime Minister

Can confirm
Acts just like another man-child I know


Apparently Netanyahu is going against tradition and will not attend a handover ceremony tomorrow morning at the prime minister’s office with Bennett. He’ll meet him for a private update meeting in the afternoon but that’s it.

Vote was 60-59.  Bibi even managed to convince a member of the new PM’s party to vote against.  That f’n guy….
