    Default Egypt


    If you haven't seen any announcements yet, turn on your favorite all
    news station (I have CNN on). People slept in the square last night
    in a nonviolent protest and Mubarak has finally stepped down. This is
    HUGE! I guess the military told him that they weren't going to kill
    any citizens for him.

    The spirit of Ghandhi lives on.

    It's not that Americans don't follow international affairs but this IS a
    cooking newsgroup, isn't it? It's not a world affairs or political ng.
    There are newsgroups for that.

    Tonight I'm making tortellini (of course I don't have the patience to make
    my own tortellini). I'll toss it in a basil pesto sauce. The price of pine
    nuts is exhorbitant so I'll skip those. Top it off with freshly grated
    parmesan cheese.

    I don't know of any group that doesn't wander off subject, or even start off
    subject.
    I'm taking the grandchildren out for supper. They will probably demand McD,
    but since they normally eat a very healthy diet, this won't affect them too
    much.
    It will me, however. Salt is over-used in every restaurant, fast or slow.

    The people of Egypt have been delivered into the hands of the military.
    That sounds a little dangerous.

    The hopeful note is that almost every Egyptian family has at least one
    member in the military. I'm crossing my fingers that they haven't
    jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

    Sure - I'll keep my fingers crossed also. I think it'll be a tough time
    for Egypt but it will be interesting to see how it works out. As it
    goes, Americans have the same right, some say duty, to throw off an
    unjust government too.

    Although we may not agree with the party in power they are far from
    unjust. Mubarak was benevolent as dictators go. What did him in was
    trying to make it a hereditary dictatorship. Graft and corruption is
    part of the business culture there. Heck, it's part of the business
    culture here - it just goes by different names.

    When people revolt without a plan it's the same as diving into a pool
    without checking if there's water. Most of these people didn't have
    much to begin with, now they will have to learn how to survive with a
    lot less... many won't survive. They knew the devil they had, no one
    knows the devil they'll get. Things are not good in Egypt, many will
    die from starvation, disease, and conflict... and then another
    dictatorship will emerge, one much worse. History has proven this to
    be true many, many times. Without a plan only chaos can prevail.

    Is "benevolent dictator" an oxymoron ?? Alas, corruption is often a
    by-product of (m)any dictatorships, regardless the degrees of graft.

    All the more reasons for folks to vote! It astounds me that many folks
    do NOT vote, especially in the USA - I don't get that! If I don't vote,
    then I can't gripe, eh! EVERY VOTE DOES (should!) COUNT!!! Always vote
    - it's an obligation - it's a DUTY!!!!!

    Sky, who's rarely missed any election to exercise the right to vote,
    especially on the local level!

    My response had nothing to do with anything that you've posted in the
    last week. Think about all the dead celebrity posts you've initiated
    or participated in and add all those "cat" posts to them. If you
    think you're innocent, it's selective memory and I really don't care.
    I posted what I wrote without your prior approval and I'm free to do
    it again.

    I wonder if Mubarak will take over the Paris apartments vacated by
    Jean-Claude Duvalier.

    Politics don't belong here, nor does anything religious. You're free to
    post whatever you want, of course. And of course I don't have to read the
    posts. But I stopped OT posts a long time ago and you don't even bother
    labelling yours as OT.
