Stock: Girl Hat

I watched Game of Thrones....

No Spoilers!

Oh my gosh! I mean I've hoped this would happen in an episode. I'm so very happy that it happened!

Okay so wow. Joffrey is dead. I'm so happy about that and it is great that Margery will not have to actually be married to him. So awesome. I'm loving it. I mean I felt so justified about it being happy about it after the crap he pulled on Tyrion and that sick re-enactment of "history". Joffrey was just too much of a prick to survive.

Of course, they think Tyrion did it but come on, how could he possibly have been the culprit when he'd barely done anything. All he did was pour the damn wine. Of course, I'm thinking that it is possible the poison was in the pie but I'm also thinking when Sansa picked up the cup she could have done something to it. Especially since what's his name came out to whisk her off.

Cersei is such a bitch. I really want her to be the next to go because I can't stand her. She's so cruel and awful. I mean she's terrible to Jamie even though there relationship is about as repugnant as it comes.

I feel bad for Jamie but at the same time it is hard to sympathize with a Lannister besides Tyrion. Of course, I feel like Jamie went through something of a change when he was with Lady Briene (SP?). And when Cersei confronted Lady Briene about her feelings for Jamie, you just wanted to yell... BITCH! So Cersei is clearly jealous because Briene loves Jamie but then she told Jamie they couldn't be together because she wants to punish him.

I'm really waiting to see what happens with Bran. I don't know if I understand what is happening there but I'm interested.

I can't remember much else about the show but I am loving the show.

Jews ordered to register in east Ukraine

"They told me that masked men were waiting for Jewish people after the Passover eve prayer, handed them the flier and told them to obey its instructions," he said.

The leaflet begins, "Dear Ukraine citizens of Jewish nationality," and states that all people of Jewish descent over 16 years old must report to the Commissioner for Nationalities in the Donetsk Regional Administration building and "register."

I feel sickened by this article. The very idea that such things even happen in this day and age is horrifying. And while you can't for sure say this is leading into something as disturbing as the Holocausts of the past, it is similar to the way the Nazi Regime started off things.

"The text reminds of the fascists in 1941," she said referring to the Nazis who occupied Ukraine during World War II.

I'm far from anti-Semitic but not agreeing with someone's religion or beliefs is one thing but to hate them is another. I can disagree and still care about them. This is a lesson people the world over need. And to the people who are instigating this disgusting action, I truly hope someone brings you down a peg because the very idea of what you are doing is a sign of evil and of hatred.

The US tends to stick their nose where they shouldn't and I'm not saying that Obama needs to here but I do think that leaders the world over should stand up and tell this "new-Nazi's" they are not going to be tolerated. Tolerance isn't always right and when it comes to rounding up or "registering" any people it is always leading to something bad.
