Floating around the globe, drifting from country to country, never staying in one place long enough to get bored …
If you like travelling, life on the Freedom Ship, the world’s first floating city, sounds perfect.
There’s only a couple of hitches – it’s not built yet, and it’s going to look an awful lot like a multi-storey carpark when it is.
Its designers have released computer-generated photographs of what they hope the mile-long vessel will look like.
It would have enough room for 50,000 permanent residents within its 25 stories and boasts schools, hospitals, art galleries, shops, parks, an aquarium and a casino. It would even have its own airport on the roof, with a runway serving small private and commercial aircraft carrying up to 40 passengers each.
This is how it’s done in Saudi Arabia…

Saudi officials sent 50,000 Ethiopian illegal immigrants back to their home country. The final total once the mass airlift ends is now expected to be around 80,000.
Al Arabiya reported:
Ethiopia has flown home over 50,000 citizens in Saudi Arabia after a crackdown against illegal immigrants in the oil-rich state, the foreign ministry said Wednesday.
“We projected the initial number to be 10,000 but it is increasing,” foreign ministry spokesman Dina Mufti told AFP, adding that the final total once the mass airlift ends is now expected to be around 80,000.
Ethiopia started repatriating citizens living illegally in Saudi Arabia after a seven-month amnesty period to formalize their status expired on November 4, sparking violent protests between Saudi police and Ethiopian migrants preparing to leave the country.
The Ethiopian government said three of its citizens were killed in clashes.
Dina said the government is spending $2.6 million (1.9 million euros) on the repatriation program to bring citizens home, the majority women

(HuffPo) – A purportedly dead sperm whale exploded after it was pierced by a local on the Faroe Islands, its innards blasting forth as if spewed from a sideways volcano. And it was all captured on video.
The fisherman in the clip was reportedly tasked with cutting the carcass up to avoid further health hazard but hit a gas pocket through the whale’s blubber, according to News.com.au.
Do Brooklyn “BLACKS” really need a reason or excuse to commit a horrific assult on white people? Again where is the OUTRAGE from Obama, Holder, Jackson and THE REVEREND SHARPTON?……..Papa Mike
Go tell Obama.
Black community leaders in Brooklyn blamed “lack of jobs” for the recent knock-out game violence.
There have been several “knock-out attacks” on Jews in Brooklyn recently.
The local leftists want more money to tackle the problem.
News 12 reported:
Community leaders in East New York say that jobs are the answer to ending the so-called “knockout” game.
Councilman Charles Barron and other local activists spoke publicly for a second time about a rash of assaults involving young people punching unsuspecting victims. Barron says the root of the problem is that young people need jobs to help keep them out of trouble.
In recent weeks, at least half a dozen people have been randomly assaulted in Brooklyn. Officials say suspects are participating in a dangerous nationwide trend that allegedly involves attempting to knock out victims with a single punch.
Barron also suggested additional funding to community patrol groups who can act as lookouts and help put an end to the violence.
Report: Obama Admin In Secret Talks With Hezbollah, Willing To “Warm Up To A Direct Relationship In The FutureNovember 27, 2013
Are you FREAKING kidding me? What’s next, talks with al-Qaeda? Why the hell are we talking to these murdering bastards. Obama and “Lurch” are out of their freaking minds to think any terrorists can be trusted…..They HATE AMERICANS!…..Papa Mike
The US and Hezbollah are in secret indirect talks managed by London dealing with the fight against Al-Qaida, regional stability and other Lebanese political issues.
Senior British diplomatic sources, quoted in a report in Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai on Wednesday, said British diplomats are holding discussions with leaders of the Lebanese organization and transferring the information to the Americans.
The discussions “are aimed at keeping tabs on the changes in the region and the world, and prepare for the upcoming return of Iran to the international community,” according to diplomatic sources in Washington.
Because the US, unlike the UK, recognizes both the political and military wings of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and refuses to distinguish between them, US officials cannot legally meet with any member of the party. But according to the sources, the US is willing to hear the views of the party and “warm up to a direct relationship in the future.”
Al-Rai noted that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke to British Prime Minister David Cameron last week, and placed the talks with Iranian-backed Hezbollah in the context of the ongoing negotiations between the West and Tehran, which show Washington’s willingness for diplomacy with the Islamic Republic.

Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often.

THINK ABOUT THIS!
Is the Bible the Inspired Word of God? By Jason Carlson and Ron Carlson, 5/25/11
During a question and answer session at a recent speaking engagement,
a university student asked me, “Why do you believe that the Bible is
the inspired word of God?” Now this is a very interesting question;
and probably one of the most important questions any Christian could
ask them selves.
What is so special, so unique about the Bible that Christians believe
it is literally the inspired word of God?
In answering this student’s question, I encouraged him to consider the
following facts about the Bible:
Former President Ronald Reagan has edged out Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy as the nation’s greatest president in over a century, and President Obama was rated the biggest failure by a sizable margin over George W. Bush, Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter, according to a new poll.
The YouGov/Economist rankings just released found that more adults, 32 percent, put “the Gipper” in the “great” category. Of the 1,000 polled, FDR followed at 31 percent and JFK at 30 percent. Just 14 percent rated Obama as great.
Instead, 37 percent graded Obama a “failure,” more than Bush at 32 percent, Nixon at 30 percent and Jimmy Carter at 22 percent.
The survey looked at presidents since Theodore Roosevelt, the first of the 20th century. Those surveyed were asked to rate each president in six categories: great, near great, average, below average, failure, and don’t know.
Obama’s Health Care Hotline number is 1 800 382 5968.
As you dial, look at the corresponding alphabet for each number.
If you take the time to translate, you’ll find that 382 5968 spells out “Fuck You.”
Someone in the phone company has an ironic sense of humor….or prophecy!
That does give you a number that will direct you to Obummercare, but I think the real number is 312 5968 which will give you f1ck you.
Close enough. We know what Obungler and his minions think of us common people in flyover country. We also know what they think of blacks with their soft bigotry of low expectations. They are always sending blacks the message that they cannot succeed in life without gummint help. Having trouble getting a job? Here comes affirmative action Diversity (All Hail Diversity!). Can’t get into a college? They’ll lower admission standards for you in the name of Diversity (All Hail Diversity!). In fact liberals have all sorts of gummint programs to take care of you blacks because in their minds you’re too stupid to take care of yourselves and here’s the great thing about it. They’ll blame Slavery® even though none of the white people in this country has ever owned a slave and slavery was abolished 150 years ago, and white racism.

Obama Supporter “Seething At A President I Helped Elect,” Upset Over “Complete Clusterf*ck” Obamacare Has Become…November 26, 2013
Brutal op-ed in the liberal New York Observer.
We received the letter in the mail a couple months ago. The good people at Regence Bluecross Blueshield were pleased to inform us that due to Obamacare our current low-monthly premium, comically-high deductible medical policy would no longer exist come January 1, 2014. Pleased, because a new and better plan would be offered in its place. Old monthly premium: $578 for a family of four (non-smoking, helmet-wearing, and paternally snipped). New premium: $1,123. A 94% increase.
