Bloomberg - Faux Republican

How typical for Bloomberg to suggest another federal takeover. His Nannanista of the Big Apple just adores the idea of the federal government in charge of everything, because nobody does it better!

NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is mentioned as a possible
2008 independent candidate for the White House, said Friday that the
presidential primary schedule is flawed and suggested the federal government
should take over and change it.

The fed took over our schools and now our kids can't read. The fed decided to take care of minorities and now they're worse off than before the help. The fed decided the Constitution was flawed in that freedom of religion needed to be protected and now we have to careful where we pray.

Maybe our lawmakers were taught in their public schools and think pry is close enough to pray.

Bloomberg for president? Let's cut to the chase and dig up Trotsky.

I'm starting holy hour early today. Lotsa communion. Scottish style.

Lebanon - Thanks Nancy Pelosi

The San Francisco Treat is now spouting that she was just helping poor hapless President Bush. Gee, all she did was say what W has been saying.

As Pelosi desperately tries to put a good face on her stupid and illegal actions in Syria where her lie about helping out Israel was debunked, the people of the Middle East are left to deal with her death bringing stupidity.

When a dilettante takes on Hizbullah

We can thank the US speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, for having
informed Syrian President Bashar Assad, from Beirut, that "the road to solving
Lebanon's problems passes through Damascus." Now, of course, all we need to do
is remind Pelosi that the spirit and letter of successive United Nations
Security Council resolutions, as well as Saudi and Egyptian efforts in recent
weeks, have been destined to ensure precisely the opposite: that Syria end its
meddling in Lebanese affairs.

Pelosi embarked on a fool's errand to Damascus
this week, and among the issues she said she would raise with Assad - when she
wasn't on the Lady Hester Stanhope tour in the capital of imprisoned dissidents
Aref Dalila, Michel Kilo, and Anwar Bunni - is "the role of Syria in supporting
Hamas and Hizbullah." What the speaker doesn't seem to have realized is that if
Syria is made an obligatory passage in American efforts to address the Lebanese
crisis, then Hizbullah will only gain. Once Assad is re-anointed gatekeeper in
Lebanon, he will have no incentive to concede anything, least of all to
dilettantes like Pelosi, on an organization that would be Syria's enforcer in
Beirut if it could re-impose its hegemony over its smaller neighbor.


Unfortunately, foreign bigwigs come to town,
their domestic calculations in hand; then they leave, and we're left picking up
the pieces.

We've elected a very naive and ignorant Speaker. She and her minion will bring death to freedom simply to get "good" press for their next election.

Who will Rangel insult next?

"Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the
hell wants to live in Mississippi?"

"I don't think Americans go to sleep each night worrying about whether
Sunnis or Shiites prevail in this part of the world, nor should they...

Do you think for one minute that anyone believes that the solution to
this problem is going to make our lives any more safe?"

Rednecks, crackers, little brown people... I'm seeing a pattern here which might explain why Rangel is so comfortable with little Bobby Byrd. Oh, wait, people of color can't be racists.

Can they?

Islamofascists - Cowards or just no soul?

Universal Moral Equivalence

Moral Equivalence is the worldview tells us that there’s no real distinction between good and bad, between God and the Devil.

It says that there’s no difference between Us and Them.

As usual, Gates of Vienna is so spot on.
