Saturday Morning Confusion. Wag the Dog!

Dear Readers:

This is a Saturday morning where I am more confused than normal!

I better start at the beginning.

Here in London, Ontario we have a company called General Dynamics Land Systems that employs about 3000 people and they make armoured vehicles for the military.

They currently have a contract with Saudi Arabia to build these things ...., and lo and behold, some bright left winger decided that there 'could' be political unrest in the Saudi Kingdom at some time in the future, and the government 'could' try to suppress a 'possible' uprising by the population, and in doing so they would 'possibly' employ these LAV's against their own citizens.

SO!

The long and short of it is that this guy ........., or these people ......, or this small group of protesters, want the government to cancel the contract with Saudi Arabia and lose hundreds of millions of dollars in penalties and the 3000 very high paying jobs here in London so that this doesn't 'possibly' happen.

The really strange and confusing thing about this whole mess is that they are actually being listened to in some circles.

We have a saying here that seems appropriate in this case folks, it's called "WAG THE DOG"!

(The most disturbing thing your often confused reporter noticed about this issue was exemplified by a woman in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, who was more than willing to sacrifice 3000 jobs in London, Ontario, to satisfy her pacifist philosophy!)

One thing ya gotta say about Justin Beiber, he doesn't much care what other people think of him!

Earlier today, British tabloids were reporting Justin Bieber got drunk and whipped his ass out while on top of an ancient Mayan temple in Tulum.

Bieber then climbed to the top of the ruins and mooned everyone, which enraged the already upset staff. We’re told Bieber and crew were asked to leave and did, but not before hurling insults at the locals.
Police were called but Bieber had left before they arrived.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: Even though we're still talking about Saudi Arabia!
For the first time, designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have released a collection of hijabs and abayas (ankle-length robes) targeting Muslim shoppers in the Middle East.
The new line (fully named The Abaya Collection: The Allure of the Middle East) debuted exclusively on Style.com/Arabia earlier this week. According to a press release, it's intended as "an enchanting visual story about the grace and beauty of the marvelous women of Arabia."
