Roger Waters rebukes
Scarlett Johansson for
SodaStream ties

The Times of Isreal, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:addicted_to_coffee, 2/2/2014 11:46:08 AM

Former Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters, one of the more prominent celebrity faces of the boycott Israel movement, says he has contacted Scarlett Johansson “a couple of times” over the A-list actress’s decision to represent an Israeli company that operates in a West Bank settlement ... “In the past days I have written privately to Neil Young (once) and to Scarlett Johanson (a couple of times). Those letters will remain private,” he said. “Sadly, I have received no reply from either ..."

Comments:
As a Pink Floyd fan, this is sad. Depressing. I still marvel at the music, but Roger Waters has become just another "don´t confuse me with the facts" socialist.

The sad thing is, Roger Waters has always been a butthead, even the other members of Pink Floyd have pretty much agreed on that.
He´s also about as far left as Karl Marx, which is funny when you consider all the money he has, and which he keeps for himself.

While he used to make good music with other people (his solo stuff is usually crap and his ticket prices are insanely high), every prediction he has made about the world has been wrong. But he´s just not smart enough to see that.

These are the same minded people who went through the death camps after WWII saying, "We didn´t know!" after watching the Jews rounded up, their property taken away and housed in ghettos. I guess that part was ok.

And Waters is the typical bigot that says, "well, the murder of Jews would be wrong BUT........". Why is it a Jew can´t walk freely in Palestine but thousands of Palestinians work freely in Israel? Huh Waters? Idiot. I´m sick of blind liberals getting on their high horse expecting others to die for their stupidity.

Kudos for Scarlett!
Soda Stream is providing work, money and self respect for Palestinians-something their Arab brothers won´t do.
Why is it the Palestinians are the ONLY ones with a Geneva Office as refugees from WW II?
How many billions in aid did Arafat and his cronies steal from his own people?
The Palestinians have been used and misled by their terrorist Hamas leaders for decades to be used and discarded in trying to destroy Israel (something Obamas brother Malik supports with his US taxpayer funded 501c 4- why is that allowed?).
Israel is the only democracy in the ME and our ally -Scarlet is one of the few Hollywood actresses who has the facts and acts accordingly.
Buying a Soda Stream today.

In the grand design of history and life I believe it would be more beneficial to be on the side of the Creator and His historical people than to side with those who are against Israel. It´s just me and everyone else can decide for themselves.

The evil, hateful, satanic-like mindset just seems utterly stupid to me. Stand firm Scarlett, the world has an overabundance of the foolishly ignorant...that would be you, Mr. Waters.

I´m with O.P. as both a diehard Floyd fan disappointed with Waters´s big mouth and also as a coffee addict, FWIW.

Waters is also one of the lefties who "supports the troops," by showing them as victims of blind right-wing war-mongering generals, PMs and presidents. Never supports the troops as heroes deserving our awe and respect.

For some reason or another, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd´s main songwriter, lyricist, and bassist, has always been an unhappy fellow, a downer, despite his fame and fortune. I would suggest that almost without exception, those who embrace left fringe political ideas tend to be miserable people every day, all day long. From beginning to end Pink Floyd was a great group--I own nearly all of their albums--but Waters´s aggressively nihilistic lyrics put a ceiling on the pleasure. Although Waters was the leader of the group, David Gilmour´s magnificent lead guitar and Rick Wright´s keyboards defined the group musically. Gilmour was also the best singer in the group, by far.

Re #17: "Brain Damage" and the entire album Wish You Were Here were about the Floyd´s founding leader Roger "Syd" Barrett, who psychologically dissolved after promiscuous use of LSD. His bandmates made certain he was well taken care of financially until he passed away in 2006. When he suddenly appeared at the back of the recording studio during the recording of Wish You Were Here (1975), he was unrecognizable--eyebrows shaved and fifty pounds heavier--to the others until they looked into his eyes and realized who it was. That day there were many tears shed by the other four. But Syd was gone.

I despise these useful idiots who think they are deep thinkers because other useful idiots - who think the exact same way - tell each other how bright they are. If they hadn´t been lucky in the entertainment industry, they´d have ended up as nobodies, most likely dead at an early age.

In a year when California Democrats are worried about motivating their voters, Gov. Jerry Brown heard another unwelcome message Saturday: Some Democratic activists are bristling over his administration´s policies on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Appearing at a state Democratic Party convention in Los Angeles, Brown found himself forced to speak over a noisy group of sign-waving protesters in his first major campaign speech since formally declaring his candidacy last month.

Republicans fighting a yearslong unionization effort at the Volkswagen plant in Tennessee painted a grim picture in the days leading up to last week’s vote. They said if Chattanooga employees joined the United Auto Workers, jobs would go elsewhere and incentives for the company would disappear. Now that workers have rejected the UAW in a close vote, attention turns to whether the GOP can fulfill its promises that keeping the union out means more jobs will come rolling in, the next great chapter in the flourishing of foreign auto makers in the South.

Resist the Siren’s Call of ’Originalism’
Bloomberg.com, by Cass R. Sunstein    Original Article

“Originalism” is an influential theory of constitutional interpretation. In the 1960s, Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, a prominent liberal, marched proudly under the originalist banner. In the modern era, originalism is championed by Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, the court’s most conservative members. In its least attractive form, practiced by politicians rather than judges, originalism is ideological posturing with a constitutional veneer -- a naive or cynical way of attributing the views of the current political right to the Constitution’s ratifiers. But for all those who seek to restrain judicial power, originalism should be attractive. At the same time, the

One of the best arguments for health-insurance reform is that our traditional employer-based system often locked people into jobs they wanted to leave but couldn´t because they feared they wouldn´t be able to get affordable coverage elsewhere. This worry was pronounced for people with pre-existing conditions but not limited to them. Consider families with young children in which one of the parents would like to get out of the formal labor market for a while to take care of the kids. In the old system, the choices of such couples were constrained if only one of the two received employer-provided family

It´s been decided that vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, which allow cars and trucks to "talk" with one another and their surroundings, will move from just research to actual implementation thanks to a recent approval. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants to put V2V technology in all new cars and trucks as a way of avoiding traffic accidents and fatalities. For example, your car could let you know that another vehicle ahead is about to blow through a stop sign in an attempt to avoid a crash.

Bakken Crude More Dangerous

Crude oil produced in North America’s Bakken region may be more flammable and therefore more dangerous to ship by rail than crude from other areas, a U.S. regulator said after studying the question for four months. The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration announced its preliminary conclusion three days after a BNSF Railway Co. train carrying oil caught fire after a collision in Casselton, North Dakota. The regulator “is reinforcing the requirement to properly test, characterize, classify, and where appropriate sufficiently degasify hazardous materials prior to and during transportation,” it said in a statement posted on its website today.

A group of 10 U.S. Senators introduced a bipartisan bill on Thursday to eliminate the corn ethanol mandate, arguing that current law raises the cost of food and animal feed and damages the environment. The bill, introduced by Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat; Tom Coburn, an Oklahoma Republican; and eight cosponsors, faces an uphill battle as many lawmakers from agricultural states support the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS)that dictates that rising volumes of ethanol made from grains, including corn, be blended into motor fuel.

American football is a violent game and it is rare that one ends without injury. A dislocated shoulder, broken ribs, cracked collarbones, or a torn ACL -- this and more is what we watch on the weekends. Aiming for the quarterback is axiomatic. If defenders can hurry, shake, or hurt the quarterback, he can lose his rhythm or be driven from the game, leaving the offense in the hands of a second or even third-string player.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.
