Maybe the putschists can hook up with Boko Haram in Nigeria and they can have a ball. ;)

France orders Niger putschists to serve no more than one drink per week at local beer halls.

“I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

Ordered To Leave Niger

If I were in Niger, I wouldn't have to be ordered to leave!

Or is it more like "Western emperors get their feelings hurt as African country takes out the trash"?


USA! USA! USA! Bringing you democracy, or else! there were strains of VD that were incurable, and they were first found in the Philippines and then transmitted to the Korean working girls via US military. The 'incurables' we were told were first taken back to a military hospital in the Philippines to quietly die. – 4um

When the Anschluss happened (Austrian annexation to the German Reich) there were a lot of Austrians who gladly joined in and I believe there was a Waffen SS unit of Austrians that fought on the Eastern front.

Schwarzenegger's father was in the Waffen SS. Arnold did not understand it was a means of survival for him and his family.

We had a foreman on the Illinois State Highways who was a Sudeten German. When Germany annexed the Sudetenland, he volunteered for the Waffen SS. His father protested to his camp commander that he was being treated too harshly in boot camp. He was arrested as a dissenter and sent to the camps in Germany. The last I heard old Kraus had still not found a trace of him. A lot of people disappeared in those camps.

Kraus lived way south in Skokie, where the Jews lived before they moved up and out. I was out on Night Patrol and a snow squall blew in off the lake and turned everything white. I called on the radio for my back up and the foreman.

When Kraus got in his pick up he called me on the radio and said, "Where is the snow?"

I replied, "It's up north. C'mon up here."

We had a clear pavement policy and if we were out and there were flurries we had to call for help.

I hear in Indiana once they plow the roads, if you slide off that is your problem.

But one time I was going south on I-65 in the big truck with a load on. A truck going northbound hit a bridge deck and jack-knifed it and put the truck in the middle. He hopped out of the truck and was madder than a wet hen. He was going to miss his appointment to pick up a load and it was going to cost at least $500 to get the truck out of the middle. ;)
