Want Some Truth About Iraq and The War On Terror?

Democrats Aim To Engineer Defeat in Iraq

The Democrat Party is determined that the United States must lose this War
on Terrorism. While there is plenty of evidence that our recent troop surge in
Iraq is working in our favor, Democrats are declaring defeat, and are even
trying to engineer it outright.

Read the rest. The truth will do your heart good. And your blood pressure.

From Wonkette: Tillman executed by American soldiers on orders from higher ups

No, I won't link to Wonkette. Besides, with my meter count her server couldn't take it.

I won't link to this story except to those that are truly trying to find the truth, because Wonkette and those like her are lower than a rat bastard for trying to make this story true just to hurt our efforts and troops and to build her miserable meter count.

You can get a good round up of this story from Ace of Spades.

When the story first started percolating out of their cesspool I had these thoughts. Now, I will let you read Ace and Jeff because I am too angry to write coherently and without swearing which I do not like to do, especially on this blog, but to use an honorable man for their dishonorable goals is just too.......

A Wonderful Memory, Jong Mea

Jong Mea Restaurant

I was actually looking for a photograph of the old Jong Mea restaurant when I came across Lani's blog where she discusses her family and the Jong Mea. I did not know they also had restaurants in Mansfield and Indianapolis.

The Jong Mea was a traditional Cantonese restaurant when my parents took us there. The Won Ton soup was unbelievable, not like the watery bowl with a couple of soggy dumplings that seems to be the norm now. Jong Mea's Won Ton soup had a variety of vegetables, pork strips and delicate, but firm dumplings. Add their spare ribs and a platter of Shrimp in Lobster Sauce or Moo Gai Pan or Pork Egg Fu Yung and you're talking dinner. Dinner with authentic ingredients. And really nice people. Most restaurants didn't care for a family of eight, plus friends, walking in. The Jong Mea welcomed us as family. My fathers 2nd "father", Papa Presutti and his wife Mama (it wasn't until years later I realized their real names were Salvatore and Rosa), owners of Presutti's Villa on West 5th, once went to the Jong Mea with us. The meeting of Italian and Chinese made an evening of eating that was unbelievable.

Top it all off with an almond cookie that smelled of almonds before it even reached the table and a small bowl of sherbert.

To find such a Chinese restaurant today in Columbus would be wonderful.

UPDATE: I believe I was wrong when I said "Mr. Lee". Upon reflection, it was Mr. Look. Spelling correct? I hope so, because Mr. Look and Mr. Chin were, when I was young, elderly men who maintained their honor and dignity and I was lucky enough to have parents that allowed them to point out when I was out of line. They were men to be respected. I can still taste the smell and the food.

Out Damned Tenth Amendment. Out!

Lawmakers look to revolutionize primary plan

I am tired of the same flowers always being planted in front of the capitol building in Columbus. Why won't Congress get off their lazy butts and do something about it. I mean what are we paying them for?

I am so traumatized.

No Lovin With Lovers of Meat

Like meat? No meet. I am so bummed on so many levels. So, so many. Really.

Carnivore sex off the menu

One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: "I believe we are what we
consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually."

Honey, I struggle too, but I try not to discuss bodily fluids in my local paper even if they are sexual.

Does this mean we have no future together?

I am so relieved.

Tagged, But Not Yet Bagged

I have been tagged by Tom of Blogical Conclusions to think of 8 things about myself. So, in no particular order of importance.

HERE ARE THE RULES:
01. Post the rules before you give the facts
02. Players start with 8 random facts/habits about themselves
03. People who are tagged need to write their own blog
04. At the end of your blog you need to choose eight people that you tag and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment, telling them they are tagged, and to read your blog.

1. I played drums for a couple of bands that toured as an opening act for name bands. One day I woke up, sold my drums and went west to fight fires. My friends, fellow band members and later, after hearing tapes, my children were mystified why I didn’t make music a career. When I explained to my family that it would have been hard to have and raise children from a morgue I think they understood.

2. I heard Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan speak when I was twelve. That year I also fell in love with art and architecture as I carried nails and boards for older men building a church. It was a very important year.

3. At 15 years of age I was 12 feet tall and bullet proof and my father was small and stupid. Nine days before his birthday and 40 days before my 16th birthday he died and I found that I had had my facts exactly opposite.

4. I spent one of my birthdays with the Rolling Stones in Manhattan and Key West as an apprentice to a photographer who was shooting the images for their Black and Blue album.

5. My two best friends are almost to the left of Trotsky, but I love them like brothers.

6. I am momma’s boy. She was a beautiful and smart southern lady and my father knew it the day he met her and asked her to marry him. I once made the mistake of uttering a vulgarity in front of her. I miss her everyday.

7. I love NASCAR and everything that goes fast, but own and drive a Jeep.

8. I love pretty much all music, especially Willie Dixon and Dvořák, but at the moment I am bouncing back and forth between The Memphis Horns and Debussy when I drive my Jeep. My wife drives an A-4 slowly and tortures me by playing the Bee Gees on our long trips to the Eastern Shore. And smiles about it.

Chief Justice John Roberts is Injured

From Kos

I hope he's OK too, but .. Recommended by:

.. I cannot help thinking of all the injury and death he will cause
by whittling away at abortion rights
. I think he's probably an

Death? Roberts is causing? Oh, that's right, a "fetus" isn't a baby. A baby has no heartbeat nor does an unborn child feel pain.

Nab must be referring to the injury and death of the women that have their babies put to death.

I personally don't hope he's ok

want new Supreme Court justices instead of Roberts, Alito & Scalia (Thomas
can stay as the one actual consistent conservative) and I will take them any way
I can get them. granted, I'm assuming that none of Bush's nominees would
be able to get through, and that we'd have 8 justices until a centrist Dem
justice could get confirmed after the election. If it makes anyone feel
better, I'm not rooting for death, simply incapacitation to the point that they
must resign their posts. It's not my fault those are the only two ways for
justices to leave (other than resignation, which will never
happen).

I undermine my credibility? This self described epitome of evil to the religious right states that unborn babies, ie fetuses, are not babies. The lack of logic astounds me. How can a newborn be considered a baby if it cannot survive by itself? Oh, but everybody knows that. Right? How sad. How narcissistic.

Big Government, Samuelson and the 75% Solution

When Silence Isn't Golden

Aug. 6, 2007 issue - If you haven't noticed, the major presidential
candidates—Republican and Democratic—are dodging one of the thorniest problems they'd face if elected: the huge budget costs of aging baby boomers.


...

By 2030, their share could hit 75 percent of the present budget,
projects the Congressional Budget Office. The result: a political
impasse.


...

As an antidote to this timidity, I propose that some public-spirited
sugar daddy (the MacArthur Foundation? Warren Buffett?) sponsor a short book. A
possible title: "Facing Up to an Aging America." Six leading think tanks would
be invited to participate: three liberal—the Brookings Institution, the Center
on Budget and Policy Priorities and the Urban Institute—and three
conservative—the American Enterprise Institute, the Cato Institute and the
Heritage Foundation.


...

This approach would force think tanks to compete.

Samuelson must have gotten lost or was looking elsewhere when he stumbled on the truth.

Competition.

If the government would allow citizens, taxpayers and business' to compete in a free market without too much taxation, too much regulations and a federal government that has over-reached in every aspect of business and life then we will have all the tools necessary to survive.

Defend us, secure our borders, deliver the mail and follow the Constitution. Oh, and get the hell out of our way. You're too big, too fat and too stupid to keep up with us.

For anyone to believe that the government can support, through handouts, so many people, to the tune of 75% of our nation's budget, shows these people are too ignorant to pontificate.

Liberal Censorship by Kos, MoveOn and CAF Losers

Liberals Going After Fox Advertisers

MoveOn.org, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like
DailyKos.com are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign
will begin, said Jim
Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.

The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential
candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to
get
Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there.

I hate censorship. I'm off to Home Depot so I'll be back in time for the Fox evening news.

Why Won't He?

Edwards: "They want to shut me up"

Friday, July 27, 2007

Another Inconvenient Truth. Stupidity.

Pat Tillman

We have confirmed that Tillman had arranged to meet with a leading anti-war
intellectual, Noam Chomsky, upon his return stateside. One can imagine the panic
in the Office of the Secretary of Defense at the vision of the much trumpeted
poster-boy hero of the War on Terror returning home and speaking out against the evil charade of the War.


That aspect, combined with the nature of the wounds, the destruction of
evidence, the first-level coverup, and the dream promotion of the commander in
charge... well, you see where this is going.


McBushCoHitlerYouth had Tillman killed because of Chomsky, the bastard. McBushCoHitlerYouth panics, asks BossCheney what to do. BossCheney hurridly calls ReRunRumsfeld who gets the Joints on the horn and ReRun tells them to kill the poster-boy hero before he shows the War on Terror to be the sham it is. Really. How in hell did we miss that?

Don't you see what is GOING ON? I didn't think so you morons.

Turn left immediately. Now. Do it. Terrorism is a charade. If you'd only open your eyes you wouldn't see the carnage.

Thank God kestrel9000 is on duty. Protecting America from itself. Playing Exposing charades about the nonexistence of terrorists, terrorism and Islamofascists.

Ever notice that these lying morons know exactly what dead people were planning, thinking and what they said to "inside sources"? How convienent they can "channel" the deceased who can't call b*llsh*t. Kinda like John Edwards and dead babies. And the fortune those dead babies directed him to ask for from the courts. Edwards made a lot of dead baby money. By channeling. Dead people.

Geez. No wonder these people grasp at straws. It is all they have.

Richs, Race and Relationships

The first two rules of holes

Similarly — as I noted in the post — there are a complexity of issues
involved in what are most frequently trotted out as racial disparities. You
bring up redlining without saying exactly with what about the practice you take
offense. Is it the fact that the subprime loans are granted in the first placde?
Or the fact that they are granted disproportionately to minorities?
The reason why Blacks (or Hispanics) find themselves with lower credit ratings
isn’t, I don’t think, intrinsic to race. We can trace the policies that got us
there, but they are many and varied.


I argued some of these particular instances several years ago with
Aaron Hawkins of Uppity Negro (who has since passed away), including
disproportionate traffic stops for Blacks in certain areas, etc.


...

But overall, it’s been my contention that policies that tend to focus
on fixing “racial disparity” — when the solution is tied solely to race (again,
I have written in favor of affirmative action based on opportunity) often times
do nothing but either exacerbate the disparity, or else have the effect of
creating a new group of victims or perceived victims, which in turn leads to a
stoking of racial animus.


Many years ago I did a study for a PAC that tracked certain racial groups and subsets within their racial group on the effect of government "help". In each case it was startling. One figure that has stuck in my mind was a comparison of black women and white women (aged 15-30, I think) that had children out-of-wedlock. Prior to the government "help" black women had a far lower rate of illegitimate birth than white women. After 20 years of government "help" those figures flipped completely. This study included years prior to the prevalence of abortion on demand.

My family is almost a mini-UN and I have found through experience with them and my extended family (and the history of my father's family) that accepting government largess is the first step toward failure, generally. In each case, within my family, it was an attitude that being on the "public dole" was to be shamed. Those who rose above that shame by getting off the "public dole" were believed to have not earned it.

Of those that refused the "dole", some stayed as working-poor, but proud. The majority became self sufficient and instilled that pride in their children and grand children. It is now our generation's job to carry on the pride. We like as little government as possible in our family's life.
I suggest you click on the above headline and read Jeff's full post and the comments. It will be well worth your time. If not, get the government to refund the cost of your time.

Ron's Sheehans Leave an Eerie Paul

Ron Paul’s “nutbags” are doing the GOP a service
Cindy Sheehan is a good example of how a conspiracy theorist
nut job can hamstring her own party. As long as she was linked to
Democrats, she hurt the Democratic Party. The best news the Democratic
Party has had this past month is the announcement that Sheehan is leaving the
party and will challenge Speaker Pelosi next November. Pelosi, far too
extreme for most Americans, is now safely triangulated as a “moderate” because
Cindy Sheehan is foe instead of friend.


Ron Paul’s supporters are the Republicans’ Cindy Sheehans...

I'm not quite sure conspiracy theorists are the backbone of a successful political party today nor, as a very young man, was I sure that the Confederate battle flag was a symbol that would help Goldwater.

In a stunning rocket, Rudy Jew-liani basically admitted that he doesn’t know anything at all about foreign policy — or maybe that he knows too much. In an interview with the Jew York Times, Rudy inavertendly revealed that the US has been fighting an entire extra war these last few years that only he knows about.
As reported by Jeff Jacoby
As in years past, Republicans were almost routinely associated with Nazi
Germany. Former Vice President Al Gore referred to GOP activists as "brown
shirts." Newsday columnist Hugh Pearson likened the Republican National
Convention to the "Nazi rallies held in Germany during the reign of Adolf
Hitler." Linda Ronstadt said that the Republican victory on Election Day meant
"we've got a new bunch of Hitlers." Chuck Turner, a Boston city councilor,
smeared National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice as "a tool of white leaders,"
like "a Jewish person working for Hitler."

But this isn't the first time the NPR diva has publicly wished death on a

retributive justice, he'll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his
grandchildren will."

of living on the modern, corporate plantations of Cargill, Tyson, ConAgra and
Smithfield; when you tire of shopping at Wal-Mart and sending your daughters to
sling hash at Denny's in hopes that they'll meet the nicer sort of truck driver;
when you tire of sneaking into Blue America as illegal white-trash wetbacks
eager for casual work dusting our parlors; and when, like men, you finally rise
up in rebellion against this immoral usury -- then, and only then, let us
talk.


We'll gladly get your backs. But first you must grow the brains and
the balls needed to profit from our help.


This is just a sampling, but the loving reason of liberals just goes on and on.

If I Did Not Make Myself Clear

I have only committed the mistake of believing in you, the Americans.


How can we live with this?

A New Day

Last night I returned home with my son after a two day business trip within which he helped me big time. He may or may not decide to continue to work with me, but these 2 days that I got to spend with him was and is a sunrise fresh and clean. And beautiful.

Selfish? You bet your buns. Man-O-man, good Lord almighty, I'll take this selfishness as a sin if I get to do this again.

e-mail Funny

Father O'Malley rose from his bed. It was a fine Springday in his new New Mexico mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the local police station.

The conversation went like this:

"Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?"

"And the best of the day te yerself. This is FadderO'Malley at St.Brigid's. Dere's a jackass lyin dead on me front lawn. Would ye be so kind as to send a couple o' yer lads to take care of da matter?"

Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit,replied with a smirk, "Well now father, it was always my impression that you people took care of last rites!"

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment.

Father O'Malley then replied: "Aye, tis certainly true, but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin."

John Kerry's Newest Vietnam

It also belongs to Pelosi, Reid, Schumer and the rest of the rat's nest we like to still refer to as "our Congress". RINOs, unlike the elephant, have no memory and so now we come to the point where another part of the world that will be justified in no longer trusting the United States of America.

The following is a disgusting remnant of our past that is actually a precursor of our future if we let the refuse infesting our Congress "win" their way.
Dear Excellency and friend,

I thank you very sincerely for your letter and for your offer to
transport me towards freedom. I cannot, alas, leave in such a cowardly fashion.


As for you and in particular for your great country, I never
believed for a moment that you would have this sentiment of abandoning a people
which has chosen liberty. You have refused us your protection and we can do
nothing about it. You leave us and it is my wish that you and your country will
find happiness under the sky.


But mark it well that, if I shall die here on the spot and in my
country that I love, it is too bad because we are all born and must die one day.
I have only committed the mistake of believing in you, the Americans.


Please accept, Excellency, my dear friend, my faithful and friendly
sentiments. Sirik Matak.


This is not the America I wish to live in. To turn our back on the people of the Middle East just so some moral reprobates can win elections to gain more power disgusts me so deeply I am at a loss to truly express it.

UPDATE: Sirik Matak was shot in the stomach days after this letter was written by the Khemer Rouge along with what was left of the free government of his country. Unfortunately Sirik Matak lived for another 3 years before he died. His compatriots died that day. All murdered by the Khemer Rouge. The killers were communists. They were also, just like Islamofascists, common thugs, murderers and slugs on the body politic.

Al-Qaeda faces rebellion from the ranks

Fed up with being part of a group that cuts off a person’s face with
piano wire to teach others a lesson, dozens of low-level members of al-Qaeda in
Iraq are daring to become informants for the US military in a hostile Baghdad
neighbourhood.


The ground-breaking move in Doura is part of a wider trend that has
started in other al-Qaeda hotspots across the country and in which Sunni
insurgent groups and tribal sheikhs have stood together with the coalition
against the extremist movement.


When their own are turning on them because the forces of freedom are clearly a better choice then al Qaeda is starting to die. At least in Iraq.

Of course, democrats can't admit this because such an admission would signify a lie and failure on their part. That is nothing new,

Ron Paul and His Loveable Band of Wackos

As I've said before, Ron Paul has some good ideas. Is this the candidate and are these the people we want in charge?

'NYT': Ron Paul for President -- Of the 'Wackos'?

A feature piece in this coming Sunday's New York Times Magazine on
Republican candidate for president, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, portrays his
followers as including a wild mix of "wackos" on both ends of the political
spectrum. Paul, a libertarian, has been gaining media and public attention of
late.


The cover line reads: "A Genuine Radical for President." The headline
inside: "The Antiwar, Anti-Abortion, Anti-Drug-Enforcement-Administration,
Anti-medicare Candidacy of Dr. Ron Paul."


The article closes with the author, Christopher Caldwell, attending a
Ron Paul Meetup in Pasadena. The co-host, Connie Ruffley of United Republicans
of California, admits she once was a member of the radical right John Birch
Society and when she asks for a show of hands "quite a few" attendees reveal
that they were or are members, too. She refers to Sen. Dianne Feinstein as
"Fine-Swine" and attacks Israel, pleasing some while others "walked
out."


Okay, start with the "He was misquoted" and then change the subject. Oh, don't forget to tell me to read the Constitution, etc.

That is the way to win votes and at an avergae of 10 votes per coffee klatch, you only have 6,204,000 to victory!

Poll- 61% of Kos Libs Love the War

In a surprising poll at at Daily Kos less than 40% were against the War on Terror. Other shocking findings were that people who have taken the poll like private insurance, oil company profits, Republican filibusters, the logic of global warming skeptics and the French more than humidity.

Washington pundits are at a loss to explain what they believe to be a seismic shift in the American electorate. An anonymous high ranking aide to a person who once knew Harry Reid was quoted "Harry and the harpy are gonna be crappin bricks over this."

Lawyers from the ACLU sat stunned when told the poll numbers showed that 85% of liberals liked the idea of suspending habeas corpus. One lawyer was seen tearing her hair out screaming "look at the press numbers". Those numbers showed 86% of respondents actually like "lazy" coverage of news events by the media which presumably includes Iraq.

One Presidential candidate mumbled to an aide within the hearing distance of one reporter who reported the she said, "Kos, that putz. Is he a jew? I don't give a damn, find out now you moron."

Calls to various University Political Science Departments have not been returned though one answering machine relayed what seemed to be a hastily recorded message about moving to Canada, a door slamming and then silence.

Republican pollsters were just as stunned with one, Bill Lee of TelOpinion, not able to finish the telephone call with what appeared to be hysterical laughter or a coughing fit.

Oil For Blood In The Middle East

For years we have heard delightful people scream "No blood for oil" or some some such political ditty.

I believe we are in Afghanistan and Iraq for many reasons and the stability of our economy is part of that and oil is part of our economy. Oil is a substance with which a despot like Saddam could use to blackmail or bring governments down.

Question to our friends across the aisle:

Do you want terrorists or terrorist states such as Iran controlling Iraq's oil fields to pursue more terror on innocent people?

Chilean Sea Bass Meets Sarah Lee and Gets Gored

My wife commented on the menu a couple of days ago.

As the joke now goes, "Nobody doesn't like Sarah Lee", but this is about Sarah Gore Lee and her marriage menu. Sarah is the daughter of Algore and the Gorelees had everyone dine on Chilean Sea Bass as in the endangered fish.

Having jetted to the daughter's California wedding fresh from saving the earth with globe trotting rock stars, the Tennessee tycoon of global warming sat down to the dish.

I am not sure if Algore immediately jumped back on his jet to burn up some sky so as to check the settings on his spanking brand new solar panels sooner than later. The earth is in the balance, you know.

Dunno, maybe that's Tipper's job. She usually does the heavy lifting.

Illegal's Crime Devastating Families

Report: Deportation Devastating Families

An estimated 1.6 million children and spouses have been separated from
family members forced to leave the country under toughened 1996 immigration
laws, a human rights group said Wednesday.


The separations have taken a toll on families who have sold homes,
lost jobs, lost businesses or been thrown into financial turmoil, Human Rights
Watch said in a new report.

The widespread impact on American families has been truly devastating, said Alison Parker, a senior researcher with Human Rights Watch.


American families? I don't think so.

What is truly devastating is the cost, financially and ethically, illegal immigration has on America.

Now lets discuss terrorists sneaking across the border. Whose families will be devastated?

Oh, Really?

RICO Reid and America

Although the RICO Act can be used in many contexts, the statute is most easily understood in its intended context: the Mafia. In the context of the Maifa, the defendant person (i.e., the target of the RICO Act) is the Godfather.

Dems ordered to trash Bush on TV...


Campaigns and political parties often provide sample messages that
supporters can repeat in media appearances. The Democratic memo includes this
just-add-water message template for Democratic senators to propagate: “President Bush has proven beyond any doubt that he won’t listen to the Congress or the American people unless he is forced to. While some Senate Republicans might not want to change course in Iraq, it does not gives them the right to block an up or down vote on legislation supported by a majority of the Congress and the
American people.”


The memo says Senate Democrats are coordinating with their House
counterparts to produce an echo effect during floor speeches in the other
chamber. Under a section called, “Amplifying Our Message to Force a Change Of
Course in Iraq,” the memo gives this overview: --


“Senate Democrats will tape TV feeds and actualities back to their home
states.” --


“Outside groups will hold a 'call to action' event Tuesday night to
call on Republicans to end their Iraq filibuster.” --


“Iraq veterans will make visits to Senate offices asking Republican
Senators to allow an up or down vote on the Levin-Reed Amendment.” --


“Center for American Progress will live-blog the all night session.”
--


“Senate Democrats will conduct interviews on national cable and radio.”
--


“The Steering and Outreach Committee will release a video of Iraq
veterans and military families calling for a change of course in
Iraq.”


Are we now obliged to call Reid Godfather?

Bill Batchelder For Speaker

Following Ohio politics is much easier if you know who to watch.

Watching Bill Batchelder shows you where the state, the GOP and conservatives should go. As Speaker, the direction will be clearer and very much a case of substance over style.

has been examining the Senate rules and has discovered a tiny impediment to Reid's dream time debate. It's the notion of a quorum.

Wisdom & Street Smarts

What is the difference between a violin and a fiddle?

The way it's spelled.

When home, father was father and mother was mother. When with friends they were mom and dad. My mother was reared in a good family from Virginia. My father married up.

I once used a vulgarity when speaking with my mother. Once. When I came to, dad was using all 4'11" of his body to pummel me while screaming that nobody insulted his wife, not even a *%&$#@g little *&%!%@ like me.

Recap, mother was mother and my dad grew up a "shrimp" on the streets of Akron. The bad side of the bad side of Akron.

Mother had wisdom and dad had street smarts. Both were very wise indeed.

A lot of living, when mixed with good reasoning, can produce extraordinary people.

My father grew up in a world of expected failure with his "gang" of Hunkies, Micks, Kikes and Darkies. He kept his "gang" together as best he could until his early death. He had navigated life by being the only one in his neighborhood to finish high school, completing college and Medical School. I remember visiting re-hab for the Hunkie and attending the opening of the Kikes own store with dad. I also remember watching my father weep uncontrollably at the funeral of the Mick and witnessing the defiance of physics as my father beat a man twice his size half to death for calling Darkie a nigger.

Darkness can create light in a person's life.

With my mother, father didn't swear, smoked his cigars elsewhere, danced with her like Fred Astaire, attended church, and worked himself to death for her and her children. Us. His sunshine. Though the street beast was always on watch and ready for action.

Sometimes people from good families go bad and sometimes good people rise above their Hell.
Loosing Your Balls Will Change Your Voice
July 11th, 2007

I will probably never get any awards for blogging or for beautiful
literature. First reason would be that I have done much
more talking than spelling in my life. I know a lot of very impressive
words. But it really takes away from the fun when I have to keep looking
back and forth at the dictionary. The second reason is that I refuse to
conform to todays requirements for political correctness. Its a disease.I wont
have any part of it. The third reason is that I treasure my
profanity, it makes me feel better. Its a shortcut to explaining just how
much I like or dislike something or someone. Some may think it’s classless
, some will say it shows a lack of imagination and education. Although I do
agree that it can get boring real quick like a Chris Rock concert. But
when used in place it serves a purpose.

And that purpose would be to defeat the enemy...


Read the rest, but beware. There is some strong language, but there is also a university of self education. There is also an honesty that is strikingly absent in our universities.

I know where Micky is coming from. The old been there, done that, but there's a whole lotta wisdom in street smarts.

Keith Ellison Locks Himself in Nut-Ball Box

Bush like Hitler, says first Muslim in Congress

Addressing a gathering of atheists in his home state of Minnesota, Keith
Ellison, a Democrat, compared the 9/11 atrocities to the destruction of the
Reichstag, the German parliament, in 1933. This was probably burned down by the Nazis in order to justify Hitler's later seizure of emergency powers.

"It's almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that," Mr Ellison said.
"After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put
the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have
authority to do whatever he wanted."

To applause from his audience of 300 members of Atheists for Human Rights, Mr Ellison said he would not accuse the Bush administration of planning 9/11 because "you know, that's how they put you in the nut-ball box - dismiss you".


I dismiss you.

Oh, and the architect of WTC 1 & II. Wasn't he an Arab or something? Or a middle eastern type guy. Or gal. Or weirdo.

THEY PLANNED. As did Osama bin Laden. Oh, my dear God, don't forget George W. Bush. Ooh, and George Herbert Walker Bush. And the ghost of Ronald Reagan. And Roosevelt, Teddy not Franklin D. and Jefferson.

Black helicopters are swarming. Unfortunately, the rest of us can't see them.

Luckily e-bay is selling RP paraphernalia hand over fist.

40,000 sales at present. Out of 301,139,947 people in America. That is smoking. Just like the first Monkees album. Without Davy Jones. Or a beat.

Stevie Ray Vaghan would cry a river. Make a Texas flood.

There is Texas and there is texas.

Would the defenders of the Alamo buy this crap? No.

We, the United States of America, caused 9/11? No.

Chairman Finally Sees Eye To Eye With Enemy

Squirrels

Chairman Short met his match. Squirrels with eavesdropping devices have been listening in on Iranian defenses. My Mahmoud gnawed on a pistachio as he interrogated the squirrels one by one chucking the shell to the side as he wistfully gazed at the horizon of his future. Local villagers rushed to grab the shell hoping to make a meal for their families as Ahmadinejad retreated to his matchbox for reflection.

The lucky winner praised Allah as his provider. The others stoned him as an apostate. The shell's location is unknown, but Pakistani authorities expressed an opinion that the shell had been detained for questioning.

When asked for comment the squirrels squeaked before they were ushered off for formal finger printing, but their Iranian lawyers stated that Ziomericans are not allowed to be quoted in the Free Republic of Iran.

Chairman Ahmadinejad stated before leaving for a viewing of naked finger tips in a neighboring village that "These damned Zionist rodents are everywhere. First we will nuke the Jewish ant and then the Zionist rodent. With the grace of Allah, Bush will learn what burning really means. Get it? Burning, Bush, but I only chuckle myself."

In 1142 it was given by Raymond, Count of Tripoli, into the care of the Knights Hospitallers, and it was they who, during the ensuing fifty years, remodelled and developed it as the most distinguished work of military architecture of its time.

My Cyber Counter-jihad
by Shannen RossmillerMiddle East
QuarterlySummer 2007

On September 3, 2004, a nine-member officer's panel at Fort Lewis,
Washington, found Specialist Ryan G. Anderson guilty of five counts of seeking
to aid the enemy during a time of war and attempted espionage. The court martial
subsequently sentenced him to five concurrent life terms for his crimes. To
date, the sentence represents the most severe penalty meted out to a U.S.
citizen in President George W. Bush's global war on terror. The case also marked
the triumph of the new field of cyber counterterrorism, which I helped develop.
Working from my home computer, I enabled Anderson's capture. There have since
been more than 200 other cases although many of these were intelligence cases
that, for various reasons, did not result in criminal prosecution.



Hmmm, do they teach a Jihadi 101 language course at OSU?

FUGLY or Architectural Heresy


The first time I went to the Guggenheim Museum in Manhattan I was really excited. I had heard all about it, seen photographs and was totally stoked to see it.

Ugh. The exterior did not live up to its hype, but the exhibition space inside was so wrong from every aspect.

The building stole from the art and it gave back nothing to art. The light, the wall shapes and the floor in the main entrance building could destroy Mona Lisa's smile.

The Guggenheim is unique, but the art and building are like a couple that love each other so intensely, but are not a match. They eventually only find each other's fault.

The Dean of the Art Department where I attended college became a good friend of mine. When I first gave this explanation to him he cried "Heresy" and if he reads this now he will shake his head and whisper "heresy" twice, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Sharratt said that he, his wife Theresa and other supporters of their
22-year-old son were planning to visit Martha's office, and "we're going to ask
for more than an apology."


"We need this man censured by our Congress," he said, because "he
denied my son -- and the other Marines involved -- their constitutional rights
to a fair trial and a presumption of innocence."


"This is what we've been fighting for in Iraq," Sharratt added. "This
is what we've been fighting for -- what soldiers and Marines have been dying for
-- for the past 200 years."


Our troops are facing an enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan that doesn't have the guts to face them in battle except when cornered. It appears the troops are facing the same tactics in Congress.

Republican Gang of Four - Wanting to Lose in Iraq

Key vote on the Iraq war keeps House GOP united
July 13, 2007
House Republican leaders largely kept their party together on the issue of
Iraq last night, with only four members breaking with their party to support a
withdrawal of troops by April.


Reps. Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo.) and John Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) were the
only new defectors though Duncan voted against the 2002 war authorization
measure. The other two GOP members to vote with Democrats were Reps. Walter Jones (N.C.) and Wayne Gilchrest (Md.), who have consistently broken with their party on Iraq this year.



I went to college with Jo Ann and I do not understand this vote from her. Duncan, huh? Jones left the building long ago and Gilchrist is definitely a lights are on, but nobody is home type of guy.

Might be time for retinal scan IDs. That's not in the Koran is it? Don't ask CAIR, they'll find that indeed the Koran does forbid it, but I don't really care what they say. Toss'em.

Mugger Murtha's Haditha

So where is Mugger Murtha on this? He sullied the military that he says he loves so much. He convicted troops, without proof, of actions in combat without any knowledge.

Now it appears he was wrong all along and was using our troops to further his political career.

Sharratts hope for celebration (Haditha Marine family)

The difference here is that people all over our nation have waited to hear what the reviews show. Unlike Mugger Murtha we waited hoping that it wasn't true. Believing in our soldiers and praying for them.

Where is Mugger's apology to the troops? To the troop's families who have been living in Hell? To the military that he shamed?

He has been raking in deals and pounding pork through Congress to further his career.

When will you apologize and resign your office you shameless sad little man?

Nobel laureate calls for removal of Bush

Betty Williams, doing her best Doris Day impression, stated to a crowd of the International Women's Peace Conference in Dallas:
"Right now, I could kill George Bush," she said at the Adam's Mark Hotel and Conference Center in Dallas. "No, I don't mean that. How could you nonviolently kill somebody? I would love to be able to do that."

It appears that such an expert as Betty isn't quite up on the presidential succession nor what is happening in the "Muslim world". If she is speaking of Iraq and Afghanistan maybe someone should remind her of how they used to live. For the rest of the "Muslim world" maybe someone can give her a history lesson on, oh, say "Muslim world" history for the last 50 - 60 years.

Betty is in good company with Jimmy "one note" Carter who has as much gravitas as a 9.6 volt Black and Decker cordless drill.
