Title: Important Find if True...
Post by: Minimalist on December 15, 2018, 03:14:33 PM
The Egyptians are highly motivated to exaggerate as they look to the tourist industry to rebound.  Of course, if the nutty muslims would stop shooting up the tour buses they might have a better chance.

Everybody wants money.

Nonetheless, I never saw anything that stops you from going there.  I wonder why they don't like you?

Don't know. Yahoo News has an article on this. Haven't read that one, either. ;)

That is the official line.  Supposedly centuries ago, they knocked the nose of the Sphinx off.  But most people here are Progressive, they despise the past just as much, though for different reasons.

No one really knows.  British propaganda for years was that Napoleon did it but anything the limeys say about him is suspect.  In any event, there are sketches of the Sphinx from the 1730's or so which show the nose missing and that was well before Napoleon.  There's another tale about some nutty muslim getting pissed off in the 14th century because peasants were making offerings to the Sphinx.

Coincidentally, there was a serious earthquake in the 14th century, too.  Draw your own conclusions.

Yes, the Emir doesn't like paganism.  BTW - Some Egyptian women still worship Hathor at the temple at Dendera.  But very discreetly ... for help in childbirth.

Yes, the British blame everything on Napoleon ... but not the Scarlet Pimpernel ... Robespierre made him up.

Anyone who voted for Hillary, will be ashamed eventually.  Just like anyone who voted for Trump.  Losers voting for famous losers.

Keep kidding yourself.

Hillary Clinton was a smart, boring, policy wonk who waged a one person war on charisma.

Compared to that traitorous and criminal piece of shit Trump she is Wonder Woman.

Comparisons ... during the election I said I would vote for a Zombie Hitler before her.  Mr Trump however was no gentleman, anymore than she was a lady.

Turns out both, under the Dark State, are pretty cringeworthy and bloodthirsty.

When you agree with me, I just sort of expect it based on facts.  It is when you don't that I think about you and wonder what you are thinking...
