    I wasn't defending Israel.  I was saying they're so paranoid about it that they treat their own in a similar way.  

    Sorry if that wasn't clear.

    I'm on your side.  Seriously -- ease up.

    There are 3.5 million people homeless in the US and 18.5 million vacant homes. What's wrong with this picture?

      Your comment was worded in such a way that it seemed to me to be something that it (now apparently) wasn't intended to be.

      I'll say this for it, though.  It really got my Irish up, didn't it?  :0)

      You did, however, inspire me to write a vivid comparison between how Israel treats its own arrested citizens and how that nation treats Palestinians.  The comparison is quite stark . . . and quite appalling.

      Sorry about having been harsh with my words.  Your eyebrows will grow back, I swear it.

        eyebrow pencils until they do, ya brute!  

        I was stupid to write a comment in haste in an I/P diary.  Should've been much more careful.

        So where do I send the bill?

            •  So you arched an eyebrow at me, huh? (1+ / 0-)

              This means that you still HAVE eyebrows to arch and there is no need for you to pencil-in any facial features.

              This was all just a ruse to get me to buy expensive cosmetics for you, wasn't it?

              I see how you operate.

              As far as the address goes - you're going to have to trust me on that.  Besides, what's to lose in sending your bill to me at my home address - a stamp?

              Sheesh!

              Not that I'm going to pay for eyebrows that you still have.  Had you not arched one of them at me, you'd have gotten away with it.

                I'd written this comment, I drove to the store for some smokes, and as I was driving back, with no forethought at all, I said to myself, "Arches an eyebrow??"  Followed by a bit of profanity.

                Clearly, I'm not all that bright.

                But at least I got your address.  My lawyer will be writing.  She's a lot smarter.  ;p

                  So it hit you while you were in the car, huh?  Isn't that frustrating?

                  BTW, you really should Google my address.  I just want you to see how big my house is.

                  A clue for you:
                  "It's 106 miles to Chicago.  We got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."

                      Have you ever seen the movie, "The Blues Brothers"?

                      That's where my "hint" came from.

                      I've got lots of space here, but the menu is rather limited.
