  1. 3 times I’ve not gotten items I ordered from amazon. I called and complained and they sent out “replacements.” Then billed me because i didn’t “return” the missing items!!! So I got billed for what I didn’t get. They’re dumber than a warehouse of rocks. I’ve cut my orders in half. If I could buy elsewhere I would.

  2. Could be images on coasters. Your call. Why not call up Oxford Dictionary to see what words you can use that will really stick it Besos. Just not Modilie.

  3. Hindus aren’t iconoclastic.
    What’s the problem?

    They have those 12-armed, elephant-headed, bird-beaked pictures everywhere.

    “…well, thank God the easily offended Indians…”

    …hmm, wonder if “thank God” is itself offensive, probably more to leftys than to Hindus, but you never know…

  5. In India it seems that people who do similar acts as – Brennan, Comey, Hillary, Nancy, – all the usual suspects – are despised.

    “… Last week, BJP leader Chandra Kumar Bose, who is also the grandnephew of Subhas Chandra Bose, pitted Jawaharlal Nehru against the Nazi leader and declared Nehru a traitor and Hitler a “nationalist who never betrayed his nation”….”

    [poor assessment skills by Mr Bose, imo. AH brought massive destruction upon Germany, most of Europe, and elsewhere]

    Well, that plus the drain on UK wealth from the expenses of WW2 (sparked by Hitler) later helped a lot getting the British out of India.
