The Holier Than Thou Alliance

I've been calling for the resignation of this Cabinet since shortly after its formation, or was it shortly before its conception... Anyways, the promised super creative steps (I doubt Saatchi and Saatchi will be involved in these) taken in the coming weeks to topple the Siniora government are long overdue, even at the risk of losing out on another begging opportunity in Paris. Just when the government was about to secure Lebanon's prosperity and erase the massive debt which was inflicted on us by Shahe Barsoumian and the Holy Ghost, here comes change and a start from scratch.

Change is imminent. There is no point in wasting any time on the futile attempts to avert it. Trying to instill fear in people has been overdone (you know the boy who cried Wolf). If you really want to rally people behind your cause, you need to have more tricks in your repertoire or maybe cosider having ... a cause.

So I will move ahead.

Let me be the first to call for the resignation of the Hezbollah-Free Patriotic Movement government. Not immediately since they have earned a shot at ruling the country with their democratic presence, but eventually they must go... They claim to be Clean and Divine, and they might very well be just that. But how long will this country continue to live on a diet of pure rhetoric? What is Hezbollah and FPM's plan to put the governmental instituions on the right track, reduce the debt, improve educations and medical care, and create jobs? All the successive government have had these goals, but where is the progress on these issues? Granted no one can be as inept as the current government, but still the people deserve to know what they are getting themselves into.

Trusting Abu Hadi and Abu El Meesh blindly isn't enough to build a country; Lebanon has trusted other Abus before and look where that has gotten the country. They'll get their chance and I wish them luck for the sake of Lebanon, but I want something better.

What an idiotic discussion,what a waste of talent,we are divided more than ever. We did not learn anything and my guess we never will.
I would like to know how would you feel if another civil war erupted,more lives destroyed,more distruction.These clowns,the one we call politicians are well worth the result.After the civil war will be really united.I don't think you are in Lebanon otherwise you would feel how scary it is,how desperate the people are.By the way Aoun had his chance before and we all know the result.
Bunch of ignorant loosers.

Dear "Bobo", in an attempt to enrich your general knowledge, the word 'bobo' means stupid, dumb, brainless, dull, unintelligent, what have you, in Spanish. I think now you're good to go :)

Bobo for your information is a term of endearment, are you gay by any chance.

Ilustrisimo Talal,
A ver si mejoramos nuestro espanol, otro bobo a la canasta? Que bien! No me esenes espanol que no te va, pendejo. Y deja de asumir posiciones ilegitimas, como las de abogado del diablo... Ah! Y una cosa mas: lo de maricon, loco y grosero lo voy a tomar como un alago, GRACIA! MUAAAA!!
Y es verdad, es suficiente.

One more thing, exclusively to you, my dear Talal: if you’re thinking about looking for a cheap translation to what I just said, I will kindly provide you with a similar translation to the ones you’re used to (I’m quite bored, I have to admit). Here it goes:

To see if we improve our spanish, another dumbass to the basket? What good! Not me teach Spanish what no you go, pendejo. And let of assume positions illegitimate, as the of lawyer of devil. And one thing more: of gay, crazy and mean go to take as a compliment. Thanks, Mwah. And is true, is sufficient.

Crappy, huh? Did you like it? I hope so, papito rico. Hahahaha.

Mwah back at you

I will not bother with a translation,you are a sweety.


Talal

L said...

Of course you won't, papito. It's all clear now. Thank you for the kisses and the new compliment, though, I'm a bit skeptical about it: Am I still a "sweety" despite my rugged looks? I'll give you chance to defend yourself, we could be all "bobos", but 'maricones'? I'm sure Jamal won't appreciate this homosexual display... would he?

Anonymous said...

"maricones"
For a freak you have a large vocabulary
Am shakin in my boots,what if jamal doesn't like it??

Talal

L said...

Yes, I do. Lo maricon no quita lo valiente. The same applies to you. Mwah!

"Bobo for your information is a term of endearment" [sic]

I knew the pro-Hariri trolls were a bunch of bilingual illeterati- they speak Achrafiyyeh's comme il faut fake "Françaoui" as well as Najd's pseudo Hanbali Aribistani parlance (remember Baha' and Saad shouting "Ayyuhal' Nâs during the moustached fatso's funeral)...

And now they pretend to speak Spanish too...

Madre de Allah!

victorino:
I checked your blog and you are a messed up dude,not worth answering.Just because you have included religion,Allah,and the "Fatso" you have proved that you are stupid.
Am going to apologize for Jamal and I for previous comments,they were uncalled for and not necessary.Emotions are running high,but it is suppose to bring us together.
A hanbali,hanafi,shafiie and christian Lebanese.

The problem is not only the lack of actions, it's also the reason for the actions. Take a look at this link. It gives you the reasons for the actions of some Lebanese:

How do you expect this government to create jobs, decent healthcare, etc?? The last couple of years have been a constant power struggle with politicians just jockeying for position. Before all those chess moves are complete, there's no hope that any steps to improve civilian life will be taken or even considered. To think otherwise would be very naive.

A new government would be more successful than the present one (which is not saying much). It would be successful only because much stronger "external forces" would be controlling all the moves, which would be even worse. Pick your poison...
