I have been trying to go to al jazeera web site to see thoughs videos… But I can’t get on and/or the web site does not open properly! I have been reading al jazeera through a translator for months now and I have never had this problem before… could my title be possible???
Can some one else see if they can get on?

Oh good I thought the republicans finally did a hostile take over of the nation and media... oh wait that happen 2 years ago never mind :(
Oh for translations go here:

If the US ever started censoring stuff like the internet THEN I would be out there protesting all right.

Okay, you know that ticker at BBC News (http://news.bbc.co.uk/)? Well, lately when there's a seemingly important story about the war, I can't get it. It's weird. Everything else on the ticker launches fine, but the story that I want just brings up the ticker ....
It first happened with a vague headline "Four soldiers reported killed" ... I found out much later that they were Iraqi soldiers. And now the story that's missing is that a US missile has apparently fallen in Syria, and actually, of all ironies, exploded a bus. Five civilians are reported dead, but I can't get the detail ....
You know ... (A) ... Why is it on the ticker? and (B) I can get the story about the guy with no hands who is going to climb Everest (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/2880859.stm)!
Now that I have a daughter, I cannot simply go off and do what I normally do at this point: many hallucinogens.
