Seems that Saudi women are now allowed to drive but cannot change the way they dress. So, how would you like to see this behind the wheel of a car on the highway, coming straight at you or trying to pass:
Tesla is all in a tizzy over this one.
Of course we all know what had happened to their driverless car:
Don’t think I’ll ever drive in Riyad. I’ll stick to this, thank you very much.
Where everyday is “hump” day in Saudi Arabia.
Of course women in Saudi Arabia can now drive but they (thanks to RT):
- Must adhere to a strict dress code and wear an ankle-length garment called an abaya;
- Cannot associate with men to whom they are not related;
- If they want to leave the home, travel, work, rent an apartment, make a legal claim or access certain healthcare, they must be accompanied by, or have the permission from a wali – a male guardian who is usually their husband, father, brother, uncle or even son;
- Must seek permission from their guardians to marry or divorce. Women who want to marry a foreigner must obtain approval from the Ministry of Interior. They are not allowed to marry a non-Muslim;
- Are not allowed to have their own bank accounts or control their finances without permission from their guardian;
- The Saudi legal system says the testimony of a woman is only worth half that of a man;
- Daughters only receive half the inheritance that their brothers receive; and
- In cases of divorce, they are only allowed custody of their children until they reach the age of seven for boys, and nine for girls.
Hmmm? Maybe moving to Saudi Arabia wouldn’t be a bad idea after all. Hmmm? Just saying that’s all. So why are so called feminists here in the Western World so uptight about these woman’s rights anyway? THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS.
Arnold Schwarzenegger burns Trump’s plan with one brutal tweet about protecting the coal industry and his relentless criticism of everything Trump does. Of course this criticism is coming from a guy who states that he would strap every climate change denier to the tailpipe of his SUV to see how they like CO2?!?!?! Say what:
Arnold Schwarzenegger on global warming ‘deniers’: ‘Strap some conservative-thinking people to a tailpipe for an hour and then they will agree it’s a pollutant!’
Update: ‘Carbon dioxide, while a greenhouse gas, is not toxic and it is not noxious. It’s probably carbon monoxide that will be responsible for the [tailpipe] genocide’ that ole Arnie talks about.
Geeesh. Of course all of the green environ – mental whackos will believe Awnold and not some crazy Harvard physicist named Lubos Motl. Stick to acting Awnold. (to think that this guy was once the Governor of California. Then again…………………?
On another note: Trump is hugely criticized for taking the US out of the Paris accord, yet the US has reduced greenhouse gas emissions more than any other country on the planet. UN response? They welcome North Korea and Nicaragua’s signing of the Paris accord. Ignore US emission reductions.
The UN’s logic? Take this guy at his word:
or this guy: And that is why Canada should get out of the UN cartel……………………………NOW!
UN’s Chinese point man on the ground!
In China janitors are now the new millionaires. This was just announced after “Mr Clean” was introduced to the Chinese economy!
Breaking news coming out of Toronto: A listing for a home in the Upper Annex of Toronto has some people scratching their heads over photos showing an exposed toilet and shower in the main-floor living room, right beside the fireplace.
The charming, semi-detached home — listed at $898,000 at 1231 Bathurst St., near Dupont St. — certainly has an unusual layout, and an unusual smell about it but real estate agents say that likely has a good explanation.
“$900,000 for a load of crap” one potential buyer remarked. “It’s a dump!”
“Shit happens” the realtor remarked.
The current real estate market in Toronto could see this potential deal go down the toilet…………………….groan.
Trudeau calls Trump’s tariffs insulting and unacceptable. Ooooo.
Both Trudeau and Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland have called the imposition of the tariffs under American national security legislation “absurd.” Oooooo!
When asked whether Trudeau will say that to Trump face-to-face, he nodded. “And I have”……Ooooooo
Of course when the issue of the huge Canadian subsidies of softwood lumber and the supply management protectionism held by Canada, especially the Quebec dairy monopoly, there was dead silence within the ranks of the Canadian Nafta negotiating team:
vs the US Team:
One English born Canadian was heard to say: “Naf said, Ta!”
From the absurd file: I see the French are at it again: a Frenchman is swimming “9,000km to raise awareness of ocean pollution”. they describe the pollution as being “Texas Sized.” Texans were not amused.
So let that French sunnamabitch try to come and swim over here. We’ll have a big surprise for him: French Fried Hali-butts: Note: The French swimmers is known as “Hal.”
I really think that when the Darwin awards were first initiated that the organizing committee had the French (France’s French) in mind:
That’s all she wrote today.
Song of the day:
