After days of protests, Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi announced Monday that a sweeping decree issued last week that exempted his decisions from challenges in court will remain in effect on issues pertaining to “sovereign matters,” a result that some were calling a compromise but that appeared to be a sweeping victory for the Islamist president.He has the people on his side, and the people have him on their side. Satan aka "American media" is firmly and solidly favoring the judges, making no pretense whatever of objectivity. Satan views Morsi's rejection of the old regime as a "power grab". Best of all, Satan aka "media" calls the judges Liberals. This tells us several things without needing further specification: (1) The judges hate normal humans. (2) The judges like Israel more than their own country. (3) The judges like foreign stock investors more than their own businessmen and workers. All of those characteristics are bad for Egypt; bad for ANY country where they dominate.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
