Post v.52

Google Inc (NasdaqGS:GOOG - News), the world's leading search engine, said on Monday it was concerned about the free flow of information on the Internet if Microsoft Corp (NasdaqGS:MSFT - News) were to succeed in acquiring Yahoo Inc (NasdaqGS:YHOO - News).

Of course businesses complain about their competitors. The original headline:

Google says Microsoft's Yahoo buy might hurt Internet

In actuality Google is saying:

Google says Microsoft's Yahoo buy might hurt Google

Quite right:

Pope Benedict XVI issued one of his strongest appeals for peace in Iraq on Sunday, days after the body of the kidnapped Chaldean Catholic archbishop was found near the northern city of Mosul.

The pope also denounced the 5-year-long Iraq war, saying it had provoked the complete breakup of Iraqi civilian life.

"Enough with the slaughters. Enough with the violence. Enough with the hatred in Iraq!" Benedict said to applause at the end of his Palm Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square.

Our leaders seem to be indeed grasping at straws:

As part of the EU's ongoing quest to make itself more competitive, the bloc's leaders have suggested creating a "fifth freedom" of knowledge to be added to the four original principles of free movement of persons, capital, services and goods in the European Union.

"Member states and the EU must remove barriers to the free movement of knowledge by creating a 'fifth freedom'", the heads of states and governments concluded on Friday (14 March) in a statement following their traditional spring summit.

Undoubtedly some out there will say this "freedom" is actually cover for the Bilderbergers and other secret governments to move their operatives into pre-planned highly-sensitive positions to indoctrinate and subject.

Try being rational and note that it is just a tired bunch of functionaires trying to make themselves somehow relevant in a world (not, by the way, controlled by the Bilderbergers) which continues to run laps around their socialistic ideals.

Oh my, the hemp-shirted among us must have been caught rather flat-footed on this one:

Energy intensive industries have won some concessions from the European Commission when it comes to taking part in future legislation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Europe.

Nary a mention in the article regarding the usual "eco-screams of protest" and "end-o-the-world now" panty bunching. Give it time.....

Something about those who go through all the trouble to blog yet do not allow comments/feedback to be left regarding their missives.
