A compliment from him, a flatter from her and pretty soon you’ve got a Date (February 16, 2009)

            In the same talking “A mockery from him, derision from her and pretty soon you’ve got a divorce on your hand” I am not sure if these are established and trademark quotes, they just came to mind and I thought they are good for an article.  I remember a quote in that vein from a US congressman “A billion here, a billion there and pretty soon you’ve got a budget in deficit” This quote is over half a century old; nowadays, we should say “A trillion here, a trillion there and pretty son you’ve got world finance in inflation”   

So far, every rich State has poured in its “economy” hundreds of billions as “emergency fund” and we are told that this crisis is to last 10 years.  I am very curious; how many billions are circulating around the world every day, and how many billions in cash money are “saved” in the world, and how much the GNP of all the States in the world are worth?  I am curious, how much money should be needed right now to stabilize world finance?  I am curious; where all these billions would be extracted from to ‘stabilize world finance” if economies all around are bankrupt, closing down, not producing, and not finding consumers to “stabilizing” their cash flow?  I started being curious and now I am pretty worried.

In my State, recognized by the UN, one stupid billion dollars is a huge sum; it seemingly covered the destructions and compensation of 33 days of an intensive offensive war by the Zionist State, an apartheid State also recognized by the UN by a majority of only one vote in 1948.  One billion is such an astronomical amount for my tiny State that the Prime Minister could not help but enhance his criminal penchant by using the billion in aid as “collateral” to borrow money and line his pockets and his close collaborators.  Go figure, using cash money as collateral!  How bad can it be? 

The irony does not stop here, the oil State that lent us the billion for “reconstruction” is the same State that encouraged Israel to extending the war for 33 days. Go re-figure, extending money to Israel to wage an offensive war and then extending money to Lebanon to reconstruct!  How can the world be in recession?

            Back to the dating dilemma.  I have read a post in the humor category; the lady was wondering how the term “Dating” has evolved lately because she has not dated for a long time.  I submitted a comment saying “Stop wondering. It is the woman’s task to elucidate what dating means to a guy.  The guy has no idea what to date means since it is the only word that conveys a sense of liking someone.  It is the girl’s job to construct a series of multiple choices that should help the guy in understanding what he really wants from a date. 

Open questions such as “What do you mean by date?” is tantamount to failure and quick discouragement.  The lady has to offer choices of what she likes to do during a date so that if there is a match in one of the activities then a date can be contemplated.  Then, it is one date at a time with another series of inventive series of multiple choices, though this time around the list of choices has to be somewhat lengthier and growing in length by each date.
