Arsenal 2:0 Montpellier HSC- 21.11.12 - Champions League
48´ Jack Wilshere
62´ Lukas Podolski
I WAS THERE FOR ALL OF THIS. And Koscielny looks even more like a dinosaur in person.
BASICALLY BASICALLY on of the best moments ever in my life. Football. At the Emirates. In Person. Jack Wilshere’s first goal after his long, long injury.
Lukas’s life in London (so far).
I think I need a Podolski kit.
I just… can’t.
Portugal’s Summer Umbrella Sky
Dozens of beautiful, brightly colored umbrellas line a shopping promenade in Águeda—a small town located just south of Porto in Portugal. While these photogenic parasols are helpful at protecting against the sun’s rays and shielding patrons from rainfall, the colorful display is actually an art installation and initiative by the council in Águeda for AgitÁgueda, the town’s art festival!
Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that Al Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al Qaida; you said Russia, in the 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.
But Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.
You say that you’re not interested in duplicating what happened in Iraq. But just a few weeks ago, you said you think we should have more troops in Iraq right now. And the — the challenge we have — I know you haven’t been in a position to actually execute foreign policy — but every time you’ve offered an opinion, you’ve been wrong. You said we should have gone into Iraq, despite that fact that there were no weapons of mass destruction.
You said that we should still have troops in Iraq to this day. You indicated that we shouldn’t be passing nuclear treaties with Russia despite the fact that 71 senators, Democrats and Republicans, voted for it. You said that, first, we should not have a timeline in Afghanistan. Then you said we should. Now you say maybe or it depends, which means not only were you wrong, but you were also confusing in sending mixed messages both to our troops and our allies.
So, what — what we need to do with respect to the Middle East is strong, steady leadership, not wrong and reckless leadership that is all over the map. And unfortunately, that’s the kind of opinions that you’ve offered throughout this campaign, and it is not a recipe for American strength, or keeping America safe over the long haul.
This morning I caught Bon Iver staring at himself intently in the bathroom mirror. ‘Is something wrong?’ I ask, because he usually avoids his reflection except when his beard needs a trim or he’s gussying up for dinner guests. ‘Do you think I’ll be a handsome old man?’ he asks, and I can’t help but chuckle because in so many ways he already is.
I don’t even understand people anymore.
