Any Questions ?

" Our nation and the world must learn the lessons of the Korean Peninsula and not allow an even greater threat to rise up in Iraq. A brutal dictator, with a history of reckless aggression, with ties to terrorism, with great potential wealth, will not be permitted to dominate a vital region and threaten the United States."

Holely Head

Where in the world is Dr. Holey Head ? What no commentary on the Democrats taking Congress? You've missed a golden 'I told you so moment'.

Could it be you've met Mr. Hellfire in a Pakistani madrassa ?

Update: Guess I spoke too soon....

Article IV. Section 4.

Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

The Road to Statehood

Yep, these people certainly have what it takes to create a civil government for their own state. Can they blame the Israeli 'occupation' for this behavior ?

C.A.I.R - Litigious Intolerant Thugs

Wanna see what the future portends as Islamofascism takes hold ? Go Here. To find out what happened Go Here. Included is contact information if you want to stand up to these thugs.

This is Bullshit. This isn't what the American tradition of an open society was meant to be. The actions of C.A.I.R ( a propaganda front for worldwide Islamofascism ) has certainly gained my appreciation and respect for muslims by denying Vilmar his right, as an American that served his country, to speak his mind freely... a right he exercises daily.

By shutting down the Right Wing Howler they have also denied the rights of his daily readers to access other's opinions. I would conjecture that the right to speak implies the right to hear and the right of press implies the right to read the opinions of others. Isn't that what C.A.I.R's existence is for ? To advocate a tolerance of an opinion ?

( hummm I wonder if Vilmar's readers could file a class action suit against C.A.I.R. for denying our rights ? )

I anxiously wait until they come and take my right to speak away because I agree 99.9% with most of what Vilmar writes, especially about followers of the Cult of the Moon God. I've read the Koran... Allah cannot be the same god as the god of Abraham. Jesus' words, a prophet in Islam, refute the teachings of the Koran and predicts the rise of false prophets. Jesus and his parables indicate that he was the last prophet God would send.

Mohammed didn't have an understanding of Protestant Christianity in we do not deify Mary. But Mohammed made sure that no one could even question his lies by admonishing his followers to kill anyone that does so. ( or in Vilmar's case.... sue their mouth shut ) Ever wonder why the self-professed messenger of Allah feared the challenge ?

The ironic thing is that the islamist are doing exactly what Vilmar was lampooning... killing their own children. They strap bombs to them. In the good old days they got a check from Uncle Saddam for doing so. They use them as shields against the 'evil Zionst occupier' knowing the Israeli's ( being civilized ) are repulsed at the deliberate killing of children. We read about it every day. C.A.I.R. simply cannot polish the turd that is modern islamic culture ( or lack thereof ).

The route they should take is that of the civilized peaceful religions... live among us quietly, pray to whatever deity you wish but just stay out of our faces with it if you want us to respect and tolerate you.

The measure of intolerance C.A.I.R gives ought to be the measure of intolerance they get.

Back Online

That was an experience. I decided to move over to the Blogger Beta. Turned into a nightmare. You have to setup a Google account and I accidently tyoed in the wrong email address which was actually a valid address owned by someone other than me. Took several frustrating weeks to first explain the problem then to get it resolved. Eventually the Google folks got me back up and running by manually resetting my account.

The Third Option

If you ask most people what the odds are of flipping a coin and it landing on either heads or tails they'd say it was 50-50. However, twice in my life I have flipped a coin and it has landed on its edge. Neither heads nor tails. So the common notions are not always accurate. I sort of get that same sense watching political pundits on television.

The Democrats are moving towards this idea of 'Had enough?' or 'We need to change direction in this country' with the common notion that they are the only viable alternative to the Republicans. They are right, as an independent I have had enough. I'm sick and tired of both parties juvenile antics. I do find the Democrats to be more juvenile and absurd in their thought processes such as when a pundit on the left is backed into a corner a typical response is 'well the Republicans did it 10 years ago'. The Republicans do it too but not with such predictability and are never going to be able to point an honest finger at the Democrats about spending.

Neither is doing anything about the subtle invasion of illegal immigrants. If you want to see what that threat is about check this out over at Right Wing Howler. And if the Democrats become a majority in the House do you think they will address this? No their first priority is to piss our money away with one investigation after another playing political gotcha against Bush.

Well I am fed up with it and the logical mistake the democrats are making is believing that they are the only alternative. They are not. I think this election cycle is ripe for the independent movement. In fact, I think that if the Democrats do gain a majority their pathetic antics will cause the electorate to move even further away from organized political parties and want real change. Should someone such as Colin Powell run as an independent in 2008 the Democrats and Republicans candidtates will get buried.

The danger is that if the independent candidate is weak it creates the only way Sen Clinton can get elected, much in the same manner as her husband's first term. Had Perot not split the electorate in 1992 Bush would have won overwhelmingly.

How Democrats Can Lead Again

A few ideas how Democrats can regain power.

Were he alive today he'd have to run as a Republican.

Fit to Lead ? Part II

Very long, very tedious but very interesting. I have to admit I didn't 'watch' it all but I listened to it all and did wtch about 4/5 of it. The first time I saw an excerpt of this it was the part where Murtha mentions he doesn't want his palm greased immediately but after he had done business with this guy for a while he might be interested but not this time. OK so that's not so damning.

The part I found almost conspiritorial was the part where Murtha wanted the 'investments' in his district to go to specific banks owned by people that had helped him out in the past. In other words launder my kickback through them. Do my friend a favor and he'll pay me by doing me a favor. Murtha should resign over this if he has any honor. Even though it happened over 20 years ago what is there to show he hasn't further honed the sleazy politician act to an art.
I would imagine that we will not hear too much rancor from those on either side of the aisle because for them this is probably just the way you play the game.

Speaking of Animals...

Guardian Unlimited Special reports:
'He is a dog and if we see him we will kill him'

What is it with these 'people'?
It's always kill, kill, kill... destruction and hate.
It is they that behave like animals. Rats come to mind.
If Allah is all powerful why do they need to do his killing for him ?
Why is it that what they perceive that their Creator is pleased when they destroy his creations ?
They are a disease in need of a little radiological treatment.

Compare and Contrast
Senate Condemns Iraqi Prisoner Abuse

The Hyperbole:

"On March 19, 2004, President Bush asked, 'Who would prefer that Saddam's torture chambers still be open?'" said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. "Shamefully, we now learn that Saddam's torture chambers reopened under new management: U.S. management."

The Reality:

Tortured screams ring out as Iraqis take over Abu Ghraib

Note these paragraphs from the article:
"The witness said that even in the thieves' section prisoners were being treated badly. "Someone was shouting 'Please help us, we want the human rights officers, we want the Americans to come back'," he said."

"And Khalid Alaani, who was also picked up in Ramadi suspected of involvement in Sunni terrorism, said: 'We preferred the Americans. We asked to move with them to Baghdad airport because we knew the treatment would be changed because we know what the Iraqis are. When the Americans left everything changed.' "

So why would Sen. Kennedy say such a thing ? Because for him and those like him that put Party before country the real enemy in the global war against terrorists is George Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Karl Rove and 53% of the American people that put them in power.

Chipping Away At The Freedom of Thought

Still more from the Thought Police....

This from the very group of people screaming about the loss of civil liberties under the Bush administration.

If they'll threaten revoking a broadcast license then how long before they actually do it?

Another Zionist Plot on Film

There will still be those that say 9/11 was an inside job or Zionist cospiracy. How intellectually challenged must a mind be to be presented with the facts and still derive an obtuse conclusion ?

Bin Laden seen with hijackers?

Digital Brown Shirt Thought Police

Wanna join the Digital Brown Shirt Thought Police?

Dish it out, but can't take it ?

Do you recall the CBS movie about Reagan ? Remember how the libs were all a flutter about it?

Now they are in a tissy about this ABC 9/11 movie.

Of course we'll probably never know the truth since Sandy Berger's visit to the National Archives.

Worst President Ever

SPIEGEL Interview with Jimmy Carter:
"The US and Israel Stand Alone"

Carter: There's no doubt that this administration has made a radical and unpressured departure from the basic policies of all previous administrations including those of both Republican and Democratic presidents.

SPIEGEL: For example?

Carter: Under all of its predecessors there was a commitment to peace instead of preemptive war. Our country always had a policy of not going to war unless our own security was directly threatened and now we have a new policy of going to war on a preemptive basis"

Jimmy did you happen to notice this particular threat to our security that was brought about by the short-sightedness of you and all your predecessors' foreign policy?:

What is the anticipated casualty threshold before we take preemptive measures to eliminate a threat before it eliminates us? How should we handle tyrants, like Saddam Hussein, that consider their nation at war with us ? If a state declares war on us, by firing on our aircraft on a daily basis for years is it prudent to ignore that declaration ? Is it prudent to ignore a declaration of war when a state seizes our embassy and holds its staff hostage for 444 days?

Also Mr. Carter I consider your 'peace at any cost' worldview the cause of islamofascism. You should have nipped this in the bud when you actually had the power to. What can be said of the moral character of a man who sees impending evil and does nothing ? I believe you've made a statement about that...

"Aggression unopposed becomes a contagious disease."
-- President Jimmy Carter --

Please, Citizen Carter, be like a good soldier... and... just... fade away.

Protecting the Protectors

BBC NEWS: France uneasy about mandate

It may just be me but there is an absudity to this statement:

"The opposition socialists have also warned that "extreme vigilance" is needed, saying the UN resolution does nothing to address the conditions necessary for a political agreement that would guarantee the security of peacekeeping forces."

Of what use are peacekeeping forces that need protection? By whom?

Haaretz - Israel News
Islamic Movement: Prevent Jewish groups from visiting Temple Mount on Thursday

Mar 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
Mar 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter [therein], to take any thing out of his house:
Mar 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
Mar 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
Mar 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
Mar 13:19 For [in] those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
Mar 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
Mar 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here [is] Christ; or, lo, [he is] there; believe [him] not:
Mar 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.
Mar 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things

Jhn 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Jhn 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Jhn 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Jhn 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
Jhn 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure [unto him].
Jhn 3:35 The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
Jhn 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

The Enlightened Left

Just found a link over at LGF that once again blesses us all with the profound wisdom of Daily Kos and the Left in general:

Imagine A World Without Israel

I made the mistake of actually going to the site and reading the comments. If I hadn't just gotten out of the shower I'd go back and get exact quotes. The general flow of 'discussion' is that Israel has no claim to the Roman province of Palestine. Mostly it is along the lines of the Jewish homeland should have been in Europe. Stuff you'd hear in any speech from Iran's Ahmaneedahandjob.

All in all I keep thinking that this is the result of an educational system that has taught to the lowest common denominator for 40 years. I was subjecting myself to a Daily Dumb Down.

One enlightened commentor informs us that before 1948 there was never an Israel in the region. That made me think that those Jews are very clever people; I mean how in the hell did they manage to slip that Jewish temple foundation underneath that muslim mosque after 1948?

They Can't Handle The Truth

Charge Keller With Treason

Justice is a relative thing. In determining whether something is 'just' it is always necessary to compare a primary action against a resulting secondary action or inaction to the initial cause. An example would be a terrorist planting a roadside bomb to kill innocents only having it explode prematurely and leave him crippled. The initial action of planting the bomb becomes justice served when it does to him what he intended to do to others. That's Justice.

Now ask yourself if the two following incidents display an injustice by inaction.

Several Marines have been charged with murder in Haditha. Aside from all the irritating squeals and roar of flapping moonbat wings it is beginning to emerge that this was indeed a tragedy but not necessarily done with the degree of malice first described. These Marines are most certainly keen to the exercise of a most primal right; that of self preservation and do not have weeks to deliberate an action in defense of that right. Just a fews seconds to analyze a threat and respond. Sometimes they have no option but to take the primal course and kill or be killed. It is wired into the most elemental parts of our brains. Fight or Flight.

When this decision goes terribly wrong then a society of laws feels compelled to serve Justice by charging those Marines with murder. Because if they did this in this manner then they also threaten the lives of those serving the same mission by inflaming the hatred of occupation in the populace. If they in fact did maliciously kill innocents then the charge is Just.

Now comes the New York Times' Bill Keller claiming from his loafty heights that acting in his capacity as arbiter of the public interest and for our own common good it is quite alright to reveal national security secrets. In the article the Times even says it is a secret program... well not anymore.

This decision endangers far more people than the actions of those Marines. It endangers all of us by giving aid and comfort to our enemiesthrough the obsesive effort to undermine the head of the American military . Now given that the liberal press thinks George Bush is the enemy and are at war with the President, the rest of us still hang on to a tinge of sanity. When the towers were attacked I don't recall those around me saying "Bush did it". Most suspected Bin Laden.

Clearly the action of Bill Keller revealing national secrets is treasonous. What does Justice require. While 8 Marines may face death for a life or death decision what does Keller face for a deliberative decision to imperil the entire nation ?

Maybe John Edwards was right... there are two Americas; one for the powerful, wealthy and influencial and their set of rules and the other being "we the people" and their set of rules. Inaction against Keller would be an injustice.

Serve Justice.... charge Keller with treason.... there are plenty of witnesses.

Sins of Omission

It was early afternoon my time when I first read over at Captain's Quarters about the release of documents stating that hundreds of chemical weapons have been found in Iraq.

Late yesterday the first major news outlet reported it as well: - Report: Hundreds of WMDs Found in Iraq - U.S. Senate

As of this morning there is plenty of mention that Karzai is unhappy with the way America is conducting the fight against the Taliban in his country, plenty of headlines about 8 US troops being charged with murder in Iraq, plenty of coverage of the Democrats in the Senate debating athe timing of our surrender in Iraq... but not a word about the release of this document or the political timing involved from: ABC News, CBS News, BBC, London Times, USA Today, NYT, Washington Post.

Since the 'Bush Lied' mantra has been all the rage these past 3 years one would hope that news of the discovery of enough WMD to constitute a stockpile would be worthy of at least passing mention.

How can one state with a staight face that those news organization are either objective or right leaning by the omission of something that is clearly relevant news? Yet those organization can't understand why people are drifting away from them towards blogs and Fox News for their information.

Want an Example of Elitist Arrogance?

New York Times:
Official of U.N. Says Americans Undermine It With Criticism

"'Much of the public discourse that reaches the U.S. heartland has been largely abandoned to its loudest detractors such as Rush Limbaugh and Fox News,' he said."

What this guy fails to understand is that the malfeasance of the first Clinton administration was the catalyst of a conservative social shift. Rush and Fox News merely responded to a emerging conservative market.

Another aspect disregarded is that the internet makes geograpy meaningless in terms of information dissemination. So I don't need Rush or Fox to spoon feed me my opinions. I formed my opinion from a multitude of sources that the UN has become irrelevant. Or my opinion that the greatest resistence to the US lead effort to make Iraq abide by its UN obligations were those nations lining their pockets while issuing empty platitudes about the suffering of the Iraqi people.

He should also understand that many of us are quite aware of the other things the UN does. We are aware because it is food that WE grow that allows the UN to feed the hungry, it is our medicines and logistic abilities that the UN uses to combat human ailments and catastrophies and above all he should keep in mind that it is our youth and resources that have to carry a disproportionate share of UN peace-keeping missions like, for example, the unresolved UN police action in Korea? I hear China's prosperous, where's their contribution ?

He should also keep in mind that we brought the UN into the world and we can take it out. If a referendum came about to withdraw the United States from the UN I'd vote to get us out of there and take it to a more suited place like Paris.

We hayseeds have a saying "keep in mind which side your bread is buttered on before opening your mouth".

You Snooze You Lose

I recall, back before the election, one of those stepford-polipundits for the Democrats droning on about George Bush being an impulsive shoot-from-the-hip kind of guy while John Kerry was more cerebral and would contemplate a problem from many various angles before deciding; the self-proclaimed intellectual elite's kind of guy.

Now 18 months later Kerry chooses to respond to the Swift Boat veterans.
Kerry Pressing Swift Boat Case Long After Loss - New York Times

In this case thoughtful contemplation proved fatal to his endeavors. Thank God we didn't elect this person and having done so proved fatal to our national security as he studied all the various aspects of reaction to world events moving at a shoot-from-the-hip pace.

Read My Lips 'Vigilantes'

I got to thinking about the way the President dismissed The Minutemen as vigilantes. Well in a technical sense they are.. they are being vigilant. Somebody has to because with 12 million potential rioters in our country someone should have been. I did not take that to be the meaning from the tone the President used.

Describing citizens that are simply fed up with governemnt inaction and choosing to do the job themselves do not deserve such disdain. I believe this will be Bush's 'Read My Lips' moment because it exemplifies the misunderestimation of public sentiment against his 'mi casa su casa' approach to Mexican relations. Mexico is not our friend, Mexico is not our ally and the export of their dysfunctional social structure pose a direct threat to our national security.

The two coming elections will be about illegal immigration in light of national security and neither party is off to a good start yet. In 08 it could very well be a Tancredo type on a third ticket that will determine who is the next President. And we all should keep in mind that a Clinton got a first term as a minority President because Perot drew votes that would have re-elected Bush.

"Read my lips.... No New Amnesty"

Mexican Refugees

I recall a headline recently saying that 65,000 people were fleeing Iraq. Found it on the old reliable BBC. Anytime you need a reference of negativity about Iraq the BBC gladly delivers. When I first saw the headline my intial thought was that it could also have read that "26,009,906 remain in Iraq amid unrest" but that would be a positive statement and that is journalistically taboo. So here we have about .22 % of a population fleeing a country and the article contains this interesting statement:
The United Nations still has only a limited presence inside Iraq but officials in neighbouring Jordan say they are trying to secure emergency funds because of expectations this internal refugee problem will grow."

Now even more recently came the news that 10% of Mexico's population ( 15% of its labor force ) is in the U.S.

I have developed an alternate proposal to the immigration debate. Let's get the UN to declare the illegal immigrants economic refugees fleeing a corrupt narco-regime. We could have them setup refugee camps in the deserts along the border and any refugee found among the general population will be sent to these camps to receive essential necessities and medical assistance from the UN's emergency relief funds. Perhaps humiliate Mexico into rehabilitation. I know... it's a crazy idea... but then it's a crazy world.

The Delusion Of Leftist 'Thinking'

From Drudge:


I'm not a fisker but every now and then someone makes a statement so oblivious to reality that the depths of it's stupidity must be plumbed. It's this statement by Chomsky:

"The regional superpower Israel is threatening to attack it [Iran], the U.S. is threatening to attack it. These threats alone are outright violations international law and of the U.N. charter. Iran is in difficulty. Iran has been trying for some years to negotiate settlement but the U.S. just refuses."

Let us disassemble....

"The regional superpower Israel"
Israel's population 6,276,883.
Population of those wishing its demise 323,000,00 arabs
Part of 1,300,000,000 muslims worldwide.
How could so few, accomplish so much, against so many in such a short time?
Maybe sometimes God IS willing.

"is threatening to attack it [Iran],"
Israel should be "wiped off the map"
Israel "cannot logically continue to live"

"U.S. is threatening to attack it."
"The Americans should know that if they launch an assault against Islamic Iran, their interests in every possible part of the world will be harmed,"

"These threats alone are outright violations international law and of the U.N. charter."
Well... I agree with him here. So I guess threatening to wipe a UN member state of the map ought to qualify. Or maybe the seizure of a member state's embassy.

"Iran has been trying for some years to negotiate settlement but the U.S. just refuses."
52 Hostages.... 444 Days, Hezbollah, Beirut Marine Barracks, Hostages in Beirut... and on and on and on right up to supporting al-Sadr in Iraq.

Whatever medication they have him on... I want some.

Most Corrupt Administration in History

John Podhoretz has a new book out.
I think I have a better cover for it.

Look for these words and names coming in the 2007/2008 political silly cycle:
Vince Foster, Rose Law Firm documents, The President's blind trust, Margaret Williams, Secret Service agent Henry O' Neill, Bernard Nussbaum, Patsy Thomason.

Us and Them

I've always favored Thomas Jefferson as the greatest American because his views seem to be the source of what we are trying to describe in our common culture as 'American', especially when speaking of our freedoms and rights. If Washington was the heart of the infant country then I'd say Jefferson was it's soul.

I ran across this the other day and I can see the influence of the thoughts that found the way into the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights. It's a quick read but let me taint it; keep Islam in mind as you read it.

The Virginia Act For Establishing Religious Freedom

The enemies we face today believes the exact opposite and are willing to kill you and your family if you don't agree with their view.

Those Vile Tax Cuts Strike Again

BREITBART.COM - April Tax Revenue 2nd-Highest in History

Now if we could just cut spending on a Mexican extra-territorial work/health/education program, the funding of the people that cheered 9/11 and want to wipe our ally and UN member off the face of the Earth and other ways we spend our money to make people that hate us.. like us, then we could accelerate the reduction of the deficit.

Kennedy Influence

Cops: Kennedy Was Under Influence - May 5, 2006

OK, here's what we know so far.... he was stumbling, reddened eyes and slurred speech. He says he wasn't drinking and was on the way to a vote ( know thy Constitution ). Now it was the pills. So one way or the other, he claimed he was on his way to vote while under the influence?

Here's how this will pan out. He's exposed and has to back down from his pre-conditioned ( even while drunk ) excuses. Eventually he goes and confesses of 'lapses of judgment' and feigns his willingness to resign his office but leaves it up to the good people Rhode Island to decide. He then goes to the media preaching about the ills of drink, drugs and driving.

Why do I say this.... it's happened before... but this time nobody died.

Update: Oh the tangled webs we weave...
" Some time around 2:45am, I drove the few blocks to the Capitol Complex believing I needed to vote. Apparently, I was disoriented from the medication."

Spain No Longer Part of Europe ?

Reference: Michelle Malkin's HOTAIR video blog ( should we start calling these vlogs ? ) concerning a recent pro-illegal foreigner demonstration in Minnesota.

Malkin quotes KTSP :

Susana De Leon, an activist and part-time instructor of Mexican-American studies, was involved in a verbal confrontation at the rally in Owatonna.

"Yes, people from Europe are wet backs man... their backs so wet because they had to cross an ocean to get here," De Leon said at the rally.

De Leon is also an immigration attorney who led the rally in Owatonna. -end quote.

Ok let's derive a few things from that quote:
1. De Leon is a university level instructor
2. De Leon is also an attorney
3. De Leon is most likely of Mexican heritage

From these indicators one would think that De Leon should know:
1. Mexicans are of Spanish heritage.
2. Their native language is Spanish.
3. Spain is part of Europe.
4. Spaniards are Europeans.
5. The Spanish also brutally conquered parts of the Americas.

So we can conclude that a Mexican's heritage is as European as any gringo's. But if you repeat the lie loud enough and long enough and the receivers of the lie are too clueless to know the difference it somehow gets accepted as an unquestionable truth.

Oaxaca Here They Come - Mexico's Congress Legalizes Drugs for Personal Use

This is a rather interesting turn of events and may turn out rather advantageous. If I were a drug smuggler why would I take the risk of crossing the US border when my customers will come to me as drug tourists ? Then for my high-volume customers it would be they that have to take the risk of carrying the stuff back into the US.

As tourist dollars flow into Mexico so too will opportunity as service, medical and food industries expand with the demand. Then when the junkie's flock to Mexico it will fall upon their health and welfare systems to address the problem. With enough opportunity we might even see many illegal-aliens head back to their real home.

Who's Doing The Price Gouging?

Oil Company Profits

From a $2.60 gallon of gas the oil companies that find the oil, drill and produce the oil, transport, refine and deliver to the end customer make about 9 cents on that gallon of gas.

The government, for their vigorous efforts to bring you that same gallon of gas, gets 52 cents.

Why aren't our Senators calling for an investigation of governmental price gouging ? Because oil companies in our mindless 'groupthink society' are ignorantly portrayed negatively.They are an easy mark for our elected representatives to divert the 15 second attention span of Joe and Jane Anybody away from the real thieves in our midst.

A good example is the windfall profits tax. In the past, Congress had no problem imposing a windfall profit tax on the 'evil' oil companies but would never think of imposing that same tax on someone like Michael Moore who invests a few million into a bogus documentary that earns him hundreds of millions. Is that not a windfall profit?

" The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
Ronald Reagan40th president of US (1911 - 2004)

Monday Musing

We live in a curious time where every thing that goes wrong is blamed on the President and has become so obtuse that he is also blamed for natural disasters such as Katrina. The actual cause of the Katrina fiasco is a corrupt political system that survives by keeping its constituents ignorant, impoverished and subsidized by government largesse while the government officials skim a little off the top for themselves and their more organized constituents like unions and contractors withing their districts. In every case concerning Katrina those people are and vote Democrat.

Now the grand paragons of knowledge that lead the Democrats have indicated that they will focus the ire of high oil prices at the Republicans and the President. Never mind that they are the ones opposing we drill off Florida or ANWAR. They are the ones that want alternate forms of energy, such a wind farms, but as long as it doesn't spoil their view of Cape Cod.

So let's get some background so when the rhetoric for the 06 elections get to its full stride we have a reference of who is not doing their job.

The Congress of the United States is a unique branch of government in that it has enumerated powers:

Section 8. The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow money on the credit of the United States;
( If the national debt is of concern, guess who is responsible )

To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;
( If oil companies profits are too high guess who is responsible )

To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;
( Is giving unfair deference to illegal Mexicans over lawful immigrants a 'uniform rule of naturalization'? )

Let's clean house in 06. Vote anti-incumbent.

Mideast Chest Thumping

Saddam's Pre-Invasion Chest-Thumping:

"We are not intimidated by the size of the armies, or the type of hardware the US has brought."
"Allah is on our side. That is why we will beat the aggressor."
"Keep your eyes on your enemy and be faster than him."

The Post-Invasion Reality:
"My name is Saddam Hussein. I am the president of Iraq, and I want to negotiate."

Today's Chest Thumping by Ahmadinejad:

"Today, Iran's army is one of the most powerful armies in the world and it will powerfully defend the country's political borders and the nation,"

"It will cut off the hands of any aggressors and will make any aggressor regret it,"

"As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map"

The Likely Future For Ahmadinejad:

Israel doesn't play to the world press.

Tax Time

Well it's tax time. I was waiting for a teleconference to begin yesterday with taxes on my mind while I read an article about government spending. So I got to wondering how long it would take the government to spend my federal tax.

In the article it said that government spending was at an all time. Somewhere around 650 billion. Then I googled how many seconds are in a year - 31,556,926 seconds.

Simple division tells us that the government will spend $20,598 a second.

What I earned in 2 months is pissed down the tubes in a mere 388 milliseconds.

To all illegal aliens, greasy palmed politicians, the regimes of Egypt, Jordan, Turkey, Pakistan and other basket case members of the UN.... you're welcome.

Ideological Cancer - The Movie

Check out:
lgf: The Bloody Borders Project

Once you're on the site check out this animation and focus on Iran. Why so few attacks while the Neanderthals rage about them? Ever wonder where the epi-center of radical islamic savagery was? Ever wonder why we deposed Saddam after deposing the Taliban in Afghanistan? Wonder why the President was so insistent on not offending Dubai over the port operation deal, a country that has a shore on the Strait of Hormuz. Ever looked on a map to see where the Iranian Bushehr nuclear facility was? The NeoCons ( that's a politically correct way to say Conservative Jew without exposing one's repressed anti-semitism ) may be a little more visionary than many think.

President Carter should have strangled this movement in its infancy.

Amnesty For Illegal Foreigners

Meanwhile, back at our Southern border, word of an amnesty for illegal foreigners already in the United States spreads....

More Slippery Semantics

Washington Post:
"Universal health care law enacted in Massachusetts"

Folks this IS NOT 'Universal Health Care'.

This is 'Compulsory Health Care'. Hardly an innovative model for the rest of the states.

What really burns me about this is that they go after the easy target, you and me, instead of tackling the real problem of sleaze bag personal injury lawyers and their lobbyists greasing the palms of politicians.

I hope Romney isn't counting on my vote when he runs for President.

Semantic Blurring

Here's a few observations on this 'immigration' issue. The proponents of illegal immigration disguise the truth by making this an all encompassing immigrant issue. Afterall, every American should be for immigration because that's what America is all about and how most of us got here. But what the proponents of illegal immigration want to do is blur the line between the two. So when you see on televison or hear about all of these immigration demonstrations they are really pro-illegal immigration demonstrations. What else can they mean by 'open borders? Our borders are aleady open to anyone wanting to leaglly come here. They are advocating violation of our law... to be above the law. Then when this intellectaul dishonesty is exposed they pull out the race card because they simply do not have a logical leg to stand on.

They want to paint this issue with the broad brush of general immigration but what we are really talking about here is Mexicans. They want to mask the ugly reality of a failed social system unable to provide adequate opportunities to its people and forcing them to do whatever it takes to feed their families. . Some of them actually advocate imposing the same failed system in the society they had to flee to. There is no reason a nation like Mexico should find itself in this position with natural resources like oil, industries like tourism and obviously a people that have no aversion to hard work. The only thing that can account for this is a government rotten to the core.

I have no problem at all with the Spanish culture, Mexicans or immigrants. This is the America I grew up in. I think we should welcome them into our country either to immigrate or simply to work. But it's like letting a friend stay at your house while they get back on their feet. They are welcome in the house to come and go as they will but you wish they would please quit crawling through the bathroom window and simply come through the front door like everybody else.

Back to the demonstrations. I've seen a lot of the posters these people were carrying and they are wrought with historical ignorance. So let's set the first thing straight. Last time I checked Spain was part of Europe thereby making people of Spanish descent... EUROPEANS !!!!

When I see this I realize we are not dealing with the sharpest knives in the drawer:

Here's what I think we need to do:

1. Begin a movement to redefine citizenship where the simple act of dropping a bambino onto US soil is not an automatic lottery winning. At least one parent needs to be a US citizen or a real immigrant, documented, employed, assimilating and learning English.

2. Threaten incumbents that are swayed by the illegal masses into doing what they were sent to Congress to do.. the will of the People, the taxpayers, the voters. Any politician that supports the illegal immigration policy is saying 'We are a country of laws... except in the case of illegal Mexicans'. They are above and beyond the law. So if they don't have to obey the law why do I?

3. Build the wall. Piss on the bleedy heart 'oh what would that say about our country?' half-wits with their heads in the sand. I'll tell you what it will say 'we're fed up with this and if you don't like it too bad'. We're the one's footing the bill. We are at war against an enemy that will keep coming at us for generations. It is unconscionable that politicians are not serious about manning our borders. I'm a big Bush fan but I can tell you if we are attacked from entry across our southern border by muslims or their South American proxies impeachment won't be near enough. It would be criminal negligence.

4. Fine the hell out of employers hiring illegal aliens without work visas.

5. Boycott businesses that hire illegals.

6. Provide those people, already here where their children are natural born citizens, with a way to assimilate in a reasonable period of time. If they don't then they are out of here. Let their kids drive down to visit them.

7. The absolute certain way to stop any behavior is tax it to death. Since I have to pay for those people that don't bother to get car insurance, health insursance why shouldn't illegals have to pay excessive taxes to offset the burden the create on our health and welfare system?

8. Giving amnesty to illegals is huge kick in the face to those legal immigrants that are doing it the legal way. The 'We are a nation of laws' way. It just isn't right.

But none of those things will happen. We are a society conditioned to conflict avoidance thereby inviting more conflict. Now we have 11 million foreigners in our country with an armed milita of 13,000 MS-13 gang members at the ready for an uprising. I think the lack of testicular fortitude and self-centered ambition in our politicians will eventually result in a blood-letting in one form or another.

I think inaction on the part of our government will bring about a rise in right-wing extremists or leftist union thuggery against these people to make them so threatend they leave on their own.

Of course the ultimate solution is instead of having them come to America we simply bring America to them and annex or occupy the northern provinces of Mexico to build a buffer zone similar to what the Warsaw Pact nations were to Russia. We've done it before over the same sort of issue. This time we don't give it back to them. Why not? It's apparent that the government of Mexico is a miserable failure incapable of or completely indifferent in providing opportunity to these people.

Where exactly is this 'War' ?

Population of Iraq = 26,074,906
Iraq Coalition Casualties 2006 = 167 as of this posting

Population of Los Angeles County = 9,519,338
LA County Casualties 2006 = 92 as of this posting

Iraq has about 2.74 times as many people as LA County so multiply by 2.74 to bias the LA County to equivalence to Iraq.

So if LA County had the population of the entire country of Iraq we could expect 247 people to have been murdered by now.

Indefensible Defense

I understand Senator Reid has a plan to impress the image into the American mindset that Democrats are not weak on defense while staging sideshows to insinuate the Bush administration has a failed defense policy. With Democrats it is not what they are about but why they are against the other guy.

I think to show some true grit the senator ought to head to a military base during Easter recess right in the heart of Bush country and support the candidates there.

Sister Hillary & Brother John

I find it quite entertaining to see liberals such as the Clintons, John Kerry or any of a plethora of Hollywood celebrities try to do the Christian religion routine. It is a common human attribute to try to fit into a group and so it is imperiative to learn at least a few buzz words of that group.

We've all probably done this ourselves. As a teenager I tried to learn some basic understanding of cars or music so you can fit in. In business you find sales managers who have a hard time grasping the intricasies of some technical implementation so they pickup a few terms of the jargon to avoid seeming like a complete twit.

So it is when liberals try to do religion. They use some example that any 6 year old that ever went to Bible school knows because most likely that fully plumbs the depths of their actual knowledge of the religion. I've made this observation before when Brother J. Kerry-Heinz decided he needed to get in touch with Southern gospel type folks during the 04 election.

Now we have Hillary making a bit of a stretch on the immigration bill by attempting to compare illegal immigrants, whose first action in this country is to break our law when they step over the border, to the story of the good Samaritan:

"It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures," Clinton said, "because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself."

Feeling a little embarassed for her novice attempt for a hallelujah, I would like to help the future President broaden her understanding of 'Scripture'( notice how she avoided the use of the term 'The Bible', wouldn't want a violent uprising of the religion of peace now would we?) So I offer her a verse she can use in the the context of illegal immigration:

John 10:1 - "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber."


Progressives ?

I get a chuckle when people refer to themselves as 'Progressives'. I've always wanted to ask them exactly what they are progressing towards.

I think I've found the answer.

MSM Liberal Bias? Naaaw. No Way.

ABC's John Green: "Bush makes me sick."

It's OK John, you're not revealing an attitude held by you and the rest of ABC that we weren't already aware of.

But THIS must really turn your stomach.

Lainey Photo Website

Lainey's Photo Website

"The brigade's mission in Iraq was very successful and troops overseas continue to take strides in making this country a better place for people to live. I am very proud to have served my country in such an honorable way. The media often portrays Iraq as being so horrible and that couldn't be farther from the truth. Even the little things we did everyday made such a big difference. Soldiers are not robots, they are people too. They have feelings and emotions. They, too, are entitled to a little bit of fun every now and then. This website was started to show you how soliders made the best of their time through the deployment process. If you came to this site for some negativity, you stopped by the wrong place." - Lainey Poche

And she aint't kiddin.

Found this at one of the major blogs but I got engrossed in the music and photos on this site and do not recall how I got there. It's worth the time to go through the entire site. Excellent photos, subject matter and well... just very well done.

As I enjoyed the pics I kept hearing all these emotive appeals from the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Michael Moore about 'sending our boys and girls to war' or 'sending our children to war.' Look at the photos. These are the Women and Men of the United States Armed Forces and it makes me proud to belong to a society that produces such people.

Thanks You Lainey very much... and yes I want to use one of your photos... a favorite is hard to choose but I'm going with this example of American citizenship:

Ben Stein On The Oscars

I didn't watch the Oscars last night but I'll take Ben Stein's word about it:

The American Spectator:

"Basically, the sad truth is that Hollywood does not think of itself as part of America, and so, to Hollywood, the war to save freedom from Islamic terrorists is happening to someone else. It does not concern them except insofar as it offers occasion to mock or criticize George Bush. They live in dreamland and cannot be gracious enough to thank the men and women who pay with their lives for the stars' ability to live in dreamland. This is shameful."

Read it all... that's pretty much why I didn't watch.

Offending Muslims

Once these 1.5 billion Muslims manage to subdue us 4.5 billion non-muslims then they can make right the decadent ways of the uncultured and inferior West. Inspired by the Taliban's purge of human imagery displayed by the former Buddhas of Bamiyan the new Caliphate will begin work on this vile and offensive image:

Offense: Depiction of the human or animal form.
Offense: An immodest female in public.
Offense: The representation of the idea that God made us all with a free will to choose our belief system and in making such choice we are accountable to God and only God for that choice.

Bulimia Nervosa Datum

Ok... I was just reading a piece by Eric Alterman over at As I read through it I came upon an idea.... So let me frame the context;

Go here and read this short definition of Bulimia Nervosa. The main idea I had in mind was the binge/purge aspect of this mental disorder as it relates to food. Some of the highlights I found include:

*" Bulimia is characterized by episodes of binge-eating followed by inappropriate methods of weight control (purging)."

* "Binge eating is not a response to intense hunger. It is usually a response to depression, stress, or self esteem issues. During the binge episode, the individual experiences a loss of control. However, the sense of a loss of control is also followed by a short-lived calmness. The calmness is often followed by self-loathing. The cycle of overeating and purging usually becomes an obsession and is repeated often."

* "Also, individuals suffering from Bulimia often deny their condition."

Now, read the first section of this Alterman piece and consider these 'facts':

* "who knew that Bush’s team did nothing to prevent 9/11 despite considerable signals,"

* "let him get away at Tora-Bora,"

* "pulled agents out of Afghanistan to send them to Iraq,"

* "recruited gazillions of potential terrorists for his organization with his chaos-inducing invasion of Iraq and spread more hatred of the United States than our worst enemies might have hoped for"

I came to realize that facts are to the liberal's mind what food is to bulimic's belly. Not something to be fully digested.

Don Knotts

Hearing that Don Knotts had passed away was one of those feelings that a little piece of myself had died. How many hours of my life had been humored by this master comedian? To this day I'll watch an Andy Griffith marathon and all my favorites are the ones about Barney. The same goes for 'The Ghost and Mr. Chicken' ( the "atta boy Luther" speech ) and 'Shakiest Gun In The West'. Masterful stuff.

Thanks for the smiles Mr. Knotts.

Islamaphobic ?

Reuters: Arabs see phobia behind US uproar over ports deal

Why would we have a reason to fear the beliefs of muslims ?

And you can attempt to excuse this logic by saying I can't judge a whole religion by the actions of a few twisted individuals that have 'hijacked' a great religion. It was not a few I saw cheering on 9/11; not a few that I see rioting and threatening executions over cartoons or chanting death slogans in mobs throughout the Islamic world.

I judge the religion by the immigrants that are compelled to leave the cesspools of their origins to go to a host country and attempt to whine and extort their way into establishing the same failed system in their new country.

I judge the religion by the fact that I doubt that God is so stupid as to be fooled by the sincerity of somebody compelled by bodily injury to adhere to a faith.

I strongly suspect that God is only interested in what is in a person's heart.

I also wonder how stupid someone has to be to believe that a God that dwells in spirit will reward them with carnal pleasures as a reward for killing something God created and somehow can't just snap the fingers and say 'be dead'. After all, isn't that what the Koran teaches ? Allah merely needs to say something is and it is so ?

So why does God need you to do the killing?

Am I Islamaphobic?..... no... I'm a realist.

Islam is as Islamist do and I see what they do and I hear what they are saying.

Wrong About Rights

lgf: CAIR at UPenn: "The Right to Free Speech is Not Absolute"

In a nutshell so that even the half-wits at CAIR can understand; the right to free speech is EXPLICITLY granted in the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION !!!!
Yes there is a limit insofar as it doesn't actually do harm to others.

THE RIGHT TO NOT BE OFFENDED DOES NOT EXIST !!! Being offended does not harm a person to the degree that others should be denied the right to freely criticize another's religion or the ill-formed tenets of that religion. CAIR and the Koran have no problem doing so to the Jews and Christians.

If you don't like it then emigrate to an Islamic paradise of your choice. We don't need you here and many of us don't want you here. Might I suggest Iran or Iraq. In this country you are free to do so.

Inferiority Complex

One of these men is the product of a superior culture.
The other merely makes the claim.
One of these men's cultures reached for great heights for all mankind.
The other cannot achieve this and is compelled by this inadequacy to bring other men down to his level.
One of these men will be remembered by all cultures.
The other will only be feared during his short life.
One of these men represents what people can achieve by peaceful cooperation.
The other is too busy hating to achieve anything.

Dubai Deal

Well, as I see about the blogoshpere there is diverse opinion about the Dubai Ports World deal. I am as baffled about Bush's insistence on this as I am about his total neglect of our borders security all while constantly reminding us of the danger to our country by an enemy that simply hates us and will go to great extents to kill us. Today the President floated 'veto' among the press and I am wondering why is he so insistent on this.

I don't buy the President's selling point that we are discriminating against Arabs by opposing this sale. That's the front story. I think it may be something more strategic... The Straits of Hormuz.

Pull up Google Earth and roll over to the Persian Gulf. I took one measurement from Dubai to the Iranian coast... 88 miles. The distance is even less if you go into northern Dubai. Unlike Iraq, when the front opens up on Iran we will lose ships to silkworm and exocet missiles. The tanker wars of the 80's serve as a reminder. What would be more of an Iranian propoganda motherload than images beamed worldwide of a US ship sinking in the Persian Gulf ?

Using land-based aircraft we could fly more sorties per day without refueling issues and keep our carriers at a safe striking distance. If the same permission is being sought from Qatar and Kuwait then we could relentlessly attack Bushehr ( 180 miles as the falcon flies, from Kuwait ).

So what if the administration is prepping the playing field but dodging landmines in getting cooperation from one muslim state to assist in the attack on another. Then comes this business deal and we find we've been leveraged by our global strategy necessites into a rather undesirable deal, at least in its appearance.

Or is it something along the lines of Lenin's "The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them."

It's The Content Stupid

Rumsfeld: U.S. lags on information battlefield
Secretary says U.S. must be more aggressive, innovative in P.R. war

In the article Rumsfeld states this fact:

"Our enemies have skillfully adapted to fighting wars in today's media age, but ... our country has not adapted."

Senator Kennedy responds:

"Clearly, we need to improve our public diplomacy and information age communication in the Muslim world," Kennedy said in a statement. "But nothing has done more to encourage increased al-Qaida recruitment and made America less safe than the war in Iraq and the incompetent way it's been managed. Our greatest failure is our policy."

Senator, how encouraged do you think al-Qaeda gets when you have the opportunity to contribute to the American cause in this information age of communications by saying such encouraging things as :

Speech at the Brookings Institute:
"Iraq is George Bush's Vietnam," Kennedy said at the Brookings Institution, a Washington think tank.

"This misguided war in Iraq has distracted us from the real war we must win and made that war harder to win, because even as we combat terror, it has left America more and more isolated in the world," Kennedy said.

Senator, they do hear it.

"There was no imminent threat," Kennedy told the AP. "This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud."

( Kennedy must have nodded off during the SOTU where the President said that in a WMD age we cannot wait until the threat becomes imminent. )

"My belief is this money is being shuffled all around to these political leaders in all parts of the world, bribing them to send in troops," he said.

( Our Allies are crooks... Britain, Denmark, Poland, South Korea, Japan, Italy...)

Veterans For Peace:
"The war has made America more hated in the world," said Kennedy. "And it has made our people more vulnerable to attacks both here and overseas."

Senator, it is devisive people such as yourself and your hollow political paradigm that make us divided, vulnerable and inviting attack.


Definitions of Racism

Of those definitions I like the first one from

"racialism is a form of discrimination based on race, especially the belief that one race is superior to another. Racism may be expressed individually and consciously, through explicit thoughts, feelings, or acts, or socially and unconsciously, through institutions that promote inequality between races."

Recently we have Bryant Gumbel commenting on the Winter Olympics:

"...So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world's greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention."

Now let's apply the IOpian Racist Equivalance Test by changing a few words and have Bernard Goldberg say:

"...So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world's greatest basketball players, despite a paucity of whites that makes the NBA Finals look like an NAACP convention."

Either BOTH of those statements are racist or NEITHER of those statements is racist.

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Hillary

Democrats blast Cheney secrecy after shooting - Yahoo! News:

The article contains this little nugget from Senator Clinton:

"'A tendency of this administration -- from the top all the way to the bottom -- is to withhold information ... to refuse to be forthcoming about information that is of significance and relevance to the jobs that all of you do, and the interests of the American people,' Clinton said. 'Putting it all together, going back years now, there's a pattern and it's a pattern that should be troubling,' "

Hows about a little Stroll Down Memory Lane ?

Where we find this pot-o-gold:

The Looting of Foster's office

" While the U.S. Park Police (a unit not equipped for a proper homicide investigation) studied the body, Foster's office at the White House was being looted. Secret Service agent Henry O' Neill watched as Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Williams, carried boxes of papers out of Vincent Foster's office before the Park Police showed up to seal it. Amazing when you consider that the official identification of Vincent Foster's body by Craig Livingstone did not take place until 10PM! Speaking of Craig Livingstone, another Secret Serviceman saw him remove items from Vincent Foster's office in violation of the official seal. Witnesses also saw Bernard Nussbaum in Foster's office as well. Three witnesses noted that Patsy Thomason, director of the White House's Office of Administration, was desperate to find the combination to Vincent Foster's safe. Ms. Thomason finally opened the safe, apparently with the help of a special "MIG" technical team signed into the White House in the late hours. Two envelopes reported to be in the safe by Foster's secretary Deborah Gorham, addressed to Janet Reno and to William Kennedy III, were never seen again. When asked the next day regarding rumors of the safe opening, Mack McLarty told reporters Foster's office did not even have a safe, a claim immediately shot down by former occupants of that office.

The next day, when the Park Police arrived for the official search of Vincent Foster's office, they were shocked to learn that Nussbaum, Thomason and Williams had entered the office. Conflicts channeled through Janet Reno's Department of Justice resulted in the Park Police merely sitting outside Foster's office while Bernard Nussbaum continued his own search of Foster's office. During this search, he opened and upended Vincent Foster's briefcase, showing it to be empty. Three days later, it would be claimed that this same briefcase was where the torn up suicide note was discovered.

The boxes of documents removed from Foster's office by Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Williams, was taken to the private residence area of the White House! Eventually, only 54 pages emerged.

One set of billing records, under subpoena for two years, and thought to have originated in Foster's office, turned up unexpectedly in the private quarters of the White House, with Hillary's fingerprints on them!

So, who ordered the office looting?

Who's Next ?

This was one of the Buddhas of Bamiyan.
This is the Taleban's paramount contribution to the heritage of Mankind.

What the Taleban did for the Buddhas of Bamiyan, the proponents of a global caliphate want to do for Western Civilization.

The words of their apologist do not support the actions we see.

Imagine if they gained power in Europe by bullet, ballot or tolerance. What if they controlled Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Prague, Vienna, Madrid... ?

Some background: The timeframe is March 2001.

"In Afghanistan recently, supreme Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar issued an edict against un-Islamic graven images, which means all idolatrous images of humans and animals. As a result, the Taliban are destroying all ancient sculptures. Explosives, tanks, and anti-aircraft weapons blew apart two colossal images of the Buddha in Bamiyan Province, 230 kilometers (150 miles) from the capital of Kabul."

From : Detroit News 03/21/02 ( article no longer available )
"Taliban toiled for a month to topple ancient Buddhas."

"Realizing that more expertise was needed, the Taliban summoned two Pakistani and two Arab explosives experts who residents say were provided by Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network.

And the obligatory hint from the BBC that it is our fault.

" Some analysts believe the demolition of the statues may have come in retaliation for UN sanctions imposed for the Taleban's refusal to hand over Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden."

In The Beginning...

Genesis 16:

5 And Sarai said unto Abram, My wrong be upon thee: I gave my handmaid into they bosom; and when she saw that she had conceived, I was despised in her eyes: Jehovah judge between me and thee.
6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her that which is good in thine eyes. And Sarai dealt hardly with her, and she fled from her face.
7 And the angel of Jehovah found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's handmaid, whence camest thou? and whither goest thou? And she said, I am fleeing from the face of my mistress Sarai.
9 And the angel of Jehovah said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and submit thyself under her hands.
10 And the angel of Jehovah said unto her, I will greatly multiply thy seed, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
11 And the angel of Jehovah said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son; and thou shalt call his name Ishmael, because Jehovah hath heard thy affliction.
12 And he shall be as a wild ass among men; his hand shall be against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell over against all his brethren.

Anti-Semitic Logic

As time goes by I am coming to realize that, for me, the only difference between these two guys is that I can pronounce 'Schickelgruber'.

So this:

Telecommuting Seantor - Kerry will try Alito filibuster - Jan 26, 2006

According to the article Kerry states:

"Judge Alito's confirmation would be an ideological coup on the Supreme Court," Kerry said in a written statement explaining his support for a filibuster.

"We can't afford to see the court's swing vote, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, replaced with a far-right ideologue like Samuel Alito."

So while the liberal court is imperiled by a far-right coup attempt where is Kerry? Doing the people's business in.... Davos?

Wonder which 'People's' business he's tending?

John Kerry - Lord of the Flies

Saw this at LGF today:LGF: Flipper Posts at Kos

Kos is hot right now and becoming influential in leftist politics. Hot like a fresh cowpie on a hot Summer day which naturally provides an aromatic invitation to flies everywhere which brings me to John Kerry posting at Kos.

I forced myself to 1.) click on the link and 2.) read his post.

Though I'd like to address many of the statements he makes I will just leave it at these overall impressions.

Senator Kerry:

When I read your post I kept hearing Carly Simon's 'You're So Vain' in the ambient jukebox in my head but the words were changed to: "you're so vain... you probably think the campaign was about YOU. Don't you ? Don't you?"

Senator, you were but a second choice out of some really bad choices, exception being Senator Lieberman, for the nomination of your party.

And now, even though there is an opening for the leadership of your party, you aren't the person to fill it.

Update: Another fly circles the steaming heap...

Belafonte's Greatest Words

As of this date he has said nothing greater or more valuable to the human condition than:

Day-o, Day-o
Daylight come and we want go home
Day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day-o
Daylight come, and we want go . . .

Work all night on a drink of rum
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Stack banana til the morning come
(Daylight come and we want go home)

Come Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Come Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and we want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch
(Daylight come and we want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot 8 foot bunch
(Daylight come and we want go home)

Day, is a day-o
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day-o
(Daylight come and we want go home)

A beautiful bunch of ripe banana
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Hide the deadly black tarantula
(Daylight come and we want go home)

It's 6 foot, 7 foot, 8 foot bunch
(Daylight come and we want go home)
6 foot, 7 foot 8 foot bunch
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Day, is a day-o
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day-o
(Daylight come and we want go home)

Come Mister Tally Man, Tally me banana
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Come Mister Tally Man, tally me banana
(Daylight come and we want go home)

Day-o, Day-o
Daylight come and we want go home
Day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day, is a day-o
(Daylight come and we want go home)
