Got nothing better to do, so why not?

Funny how I get more time to blog when I’m traveling than any other time.

I feel so darn frustrated with Obama.

I had such high hopes.

And yet I kind of get why he had to sell out. He once said something like the Palestinian people are some of the most oppressed in the world, that was way before he was running for office.

Then what does he do when he gets in? He kowtows to AIPAC. I get that. I really do. How could he get into office if he didn’t?

And he toes the Israeli line, and he votes against Palestinian statehood. And he doesn’t close Guantanamo and he even further violates the constitution with even more invasive wire taps than Bush ever dared. I get that he has to show that he’s ‘tough’ on terrorism because historically the democrats tend not to be.

And don’t even get me started on the drone strikes.

Nobody cares that so many civilians get killed along with it. Nobody even thinks about it.

I get that.

But then don’t go to the West Bank after you’ve brown-nosed Netanyahoo and then say that the Palestinians deserve a state like you actually give a damn!


I know I shouldn’t get political. I know it’s not a good idea, but I just had to throw that out there.

Go ahead and sell out, but don’t try to convince us afterwards that hey, you’re still a nice guy.

Nope. Not buying it.

Funny thing happened when I was going through the U.S. customs and immigration. When I told the officer I was going to Valdez he said, <“hey, the weather isn’t even that much different!”

And he’s actually right.

The only place I’m going that is significantly colder than Toronto right now is Barrow. That’s got a high of about -22 degrees, during the day. But everywhere else I’m going, Anchorage, Sitka and Valdez are all at or around Toronto temperatures.

Go figure!

It should be time for Fajr pretty soon. Left home at 3:30 am, will get into Valdez by around 6 pm there time, that would be like 10 pm my time. There’s a difference of 4 hours.

Over and out.
