I don't usually write about commercials here but there is one I love. Maybe you have to eat sushi (and love it) to really enjoy the commercial. For me, I can't eat sushi as a meal. I mean it's like ten bucks for 12 slices. So we're talking three servings (at least) on an empty stomach. So I have to eat other things with it. Because sushi is costly. So Geiko has a commercial that opens with a family trying to save money.
Mom: We love ordering sushi. But it was getting expensive.
[Dad is eating sushi as Daughter walks in.]
Daughter: Have you seen Captain Stewie and Little Miss Neptune?
Dad: Did you look all over the place, under your desk?
Daughter: They're fish. They live in a bowl.
You get it, right? They used the fish in the sushi. :D
John Chan (WSWS) reports:
Last week’s announcement by President Barack Obama of a new strategic focus on China has intensified a debate already underway in Chinese ruling circles over how to respond to Washington’s confrontational stance and threat of military conflict.
The Pentagon document, “Sustaining US Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defence,” represents a major reorientation of the US military forces globally, particularly toward the Asia-Pacific region. It insisted that China’s military expansion “must be accompanied by greater clarity of its strategic intentions in order to avoid causing friction in the region.”
In fact, China is under threat by the US. Through Obama’s efforts to strengthen alliances with Japan, South Korea, Australia and the Philippines, as well as build new partnerships with India, Indonesia and Vietnam—not to mention the US-led occupation of Afghanistan on China’s western flank—Beijing is being encircled on every front.Barack is a stooge. I hope to God we elect someone new in November. Green, Independent, Republican, Libertarian, I don't care. I just want that liar out.
And part of the reason that liar has to go is because of the whores around him. The Amy Goodmans who pose as journalists but don't hold him accountable. I hate those dirty whores. And Amy didn't do too well in her December fundraiser, did you hear?
They're starting to realize that Barack gone might be good for their pocket books. But the reality is, you can't whore non-stop for four years and be forgiven AFTER he's gone. You should have called him out in real time. They're whores.
