Sheehan Pimps Katrina's Grief

I sincerely hope that after THIS the Left in this country will come to see what the Right knew the first time she opened her mouth. She is an uneducated blathering fool.

Her account of moral authority, once full, is now in deficit.

But I have to admit, she has learned how to steal the thunder of other's suffering and loss from the best in the grief pimping business, the righteous revrunds Jackson and Sharpton.

Bush Energy Policy Turns Out LA Lights

That's my prediction of tomorrow's MSM boilerplate Bushitlerburton headline. Or perhaps 'Bush Slow To Respond To Power Crisis'.

Generic Reference:
Areas of Los Angeles hit with power outages

Let's get those federal troops on the way, we'll be needing another general, let's head off the riots and looting. After all it's a federal issue isn't it ?.

Never mind looks like it may have been one man, one machine, one cut line, one city shut down...... It's Billy Backhoe.

So I guess that headline will have to now read: "Bush Budget Underfunds Municipalities, Not enough money to properly train backhoe operators".

The Shanksville Rebellion

We should always keep in mind that the first pre-emptive attack against global terrorists was not conducted by trained and well-armed military forces or well-intentioned politicians but by ordinary citizens doing extraordinary things.

Having come to realize the nature of the enemy and his intent, the passengers of Flight 93 chose to take the enemy out before he could accomplish his mission. Instead of rolling over and accepting the brutality of their captors the passengers visited brutality on the terroists' 'muscle men' rolling over them denying the enemy his victory.

There are most likely many unknown people living and working along Flight 93's flight path or in and around the US Capitol, the intended target, who owe their lives to the actions of these American heroes. Some of those people might also be the very same people who are today advocating that we simply roll-over and accept the brutality of our enemy in the Iraqi operation and demand that we not visit brutality back upon them.

Those are the ones who have already forgotten...

Forunately some of us never will...

Woodward, Bernstein Where Are You?

New York Times
Berger to Pay $50,000 Fine for Taking Papers

"Earlier in the hearing, Berger expressed remorse for his crime, which he described as a lapse of judgment that came while he was preparing to testify before the Sept. 11 commission.

'I let considerations of personal convenience override clear rules of handling classified material,' Berger said. 'I believe this lapse, serious as it is, does not reflect the character of myself.'

'In this case, I failed. I will not again,' he said."

Item 1, the headline, 'Taking Papers'. For those of us outside the 'good ol boy' loop that is called 'stealing' classified documents from the National Archives. Then destroyed some of them. I would assume that is destroying government property.
How does the Times paint it? He just took them. Imagine Condi Rice just 'took' some documents and destroyed them BEFORE her 8/11 testimony. Think the Headline would not have the words 'Steal' and 'Classified' in the headline?

Item 2 Was Berger caught doing a CYA operation much as the one done on Vince Foster's office after his untimely death which just happened to be the day before he was to submit the documents to the blind trust for the Clintons which were already months late? Probably just coincidence. No way it had anything to do with Able Danger... naw, never mind.

Item 3 He will not fail again.... because..... MISSION ACCOMPLISHED documents destroyed.

Item 4 Summary.
Steal Classified Documents.
Destroy Classified Government Documents.
commits Perjury.

You think you or I would get away with a $50,000 fine? Probably plus a bunch of jail time.

Breaking Gas Prices

Here's an idea that I've been tossing around. Haven't thrown numbers at it or anything. More of a 'what if'...

I think that there are certain fundamental physical priciples that are universal like gravity, light and certain forms like the spiral, the sphere or the meander are a few that come to mind.

When we see a spiral galaxy we are seeing the manifestation of a physical force painted with matter on the canvas of time.

Another fundamental I see everywhere is the wave function. Everything that is dynamic can be described as a wave function and its cycle in time.

Now to the gist of the matter; harmonic resonance. We see it everywhere but we rarely notice it. If you google 'harmonic resonance' you'll see it is discussed in numerous fields such as quantum physics, electronic and in inter-personal relationship.

I seem to recall that the Roman legends would break stride over bridges because the harmonic resonance of a long column marching in step damaged the bridge. There was also a bridge constructed in Washington, I get a neural tinge that it was Veranznao Straits bridge ( something like that ), that on opening day collapsed because the architects hadn't thought of the wind differentials over the top and bottom of the span. The wind began to blow and caused a wave function to run down the bridge. It grew in amplitude until the structure collapsed.

Now, the way to prevent this is to send chaotic impulses to prevent the 'peaks' from harmonically amplifying themselves. Breaking stride across the structure if you will.

Our spending habits on auto fuel are chaotic as a society. On any given day somebody will be at the gas pumps when I drive in to get mine. Just another wave function of probability.

What if we all could march in unison on buying gas ? I'm not talking conservation or anything like that. Buy gas normally but just do it in specified periods. If we all chose to buy gas on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays then there would be no income on the other days to gas producers and vendors.

This could have the effect of sending harmonic resonance through the market and break the structure that is allowing price creep.

Now deep down inside I think this oil price spike is a subtle retaliation by OPEC against American power projection, especially in the Middle East. Like boiling a lobster, they do it a little at a time so we mumble instead of screaming.

I imagine their thinking is something like "We'll let them come in and vanguish our threats then we'll run them broke doing it so they can't come after us when they're done." Of course the expedient excuse is the emerging economies of China and India but a couple of those OPEC countries have had no problem with increasing output for the Gulf Coast disaster. So they aren't at the max capacity one would think from the demands of China and India they claim are causing a shortage.

Sending a harmonic resonance through this economic structure would be like poping a rug to get the bugs off it. It would also send a message that the consumer is a force to be reckoned with which is a factor they usually ignore.

Also we have an expedient excuse to retaliate against OPEC by jacking the price of food and oil equipment parts because of the destruction of the New Orleans port. If they can use a necessary commodity as a weapon so can we.

SCOTUS Trifecta

I originally posted this July 8, 2005.
Now that the Chief Justice has passed it's worth repeating.

GOP Plots Court Strategy With Rehnquist in Mind

"Some Republican strategists point out that Bush could elevate Scalia to chief justice, leaving him with three opportunities to put his personal imprint on the court -- but also three confirmation battles to wage simultaneously."

It would be foolish to do otherwise. Mid-terms are not that far off and it will not serve the interest of Democrats to be seen for the obstructionist they are.

I would really like to see the President nominate Scalia as Chief Justice and Janis Rodgers Brown to replace O'Conner. I believe it would put the Democrats in a precarious position of having to attack two people they have already confirmed. In the case of Rodgers Brown, a tad shy of being the liberal's stereotypical 'White Christian Male' conservative, the Democrats are going to look quite hypocritical with their typical over-the-top extremist rhetoric against a talented, highly qualified female who happens to be black, typically part of the liberal base.

Sometimes to defeat an adversary you simply let them talk.
No Guts no Glory.

Political Strategies

The New York Times:
As White House Anxiety Grows, Bush Tries to Quell Political Crisis

I suppose if one only looks through a political lense one only sees politics where there might simply be people doing what they are paid and obligated to do.

The headline implies the government's response is just another political calculation.

The entire thought process of this article exemplifies part of the problem of our culture.

Lead, Follow or STFU

Elanor Clift:
A Colossal Failure of Leadership

A Bush-Bash. Just open your Bushitlerburton hymnal to page 143 and sing along to 'It Is Bush That Did It To Thee". All sing in harmony on the part "We have no troops because of the mistake in Iraq", disregarding that our deployment on the fronts against terror are about 12.6% of our deployable force. But you know how liberals hate facts.

Clift I guess is getting mentally lazy and needs to fill space with the same old tired and predictable 'it's Bushes fault' or just dishonest in analyzing the full scope of leadership failure. I guess in the liberal mind Bush is a dictator that can declare an emergency in a state and send federal forces immediately to take over disregarding all tenets of federal, state and local authority and responsibility.


Not one word about the miserable leadership failure of Gov. Blanco or Mayor Nagin. Well Clift did mention "the governor of Louisiana fighting to hold back tears. " That's leadership? However, they are of a similar political stripe as Clift and I'd imagine that is why she fails to analyze the failure to that depth. Wouldn't look good for the party of the people would it ?

Here's some hard truth; This failure in leadership comes from a political philosophy of cronyism that elects people based on the color of their skin, or gender, rather than the content of their character.

And if you need to find out the content of a person's character... put them in charge of something stressful.
