Fashion Help for Liberal Metro Sexuals Compliments of Conde Nast

@ 10:48 PM (98 months, 1 day ago)

I got some spam the other day that may interest my liberal friends:

Condé Nast shuttered Cargo, the sexually-confused men's shopping magazine. Do you know which of your liberal friends read it regularly?  Conde Nast noted that a huge number of Kent State University Professors (in title only) use this wardrobe creator.

Mark Greenstein Will Not Let Hillary Clinton Sail Through the New York Senatorial Primary Unscathed

@ 10:44 PM (98 months, 1 day ago)

 

NEW YORK — A businessman who wants to take a stand against "sellout liberals" announced Friday he would challenge  Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary next fall.

He also said he would pledge to serve out his full six-year term if elected, and challenged Clinton to make the same commitment. Clinton is a potential 2008 presidential candidate.

Republicans will enjoy watching Greenstein take pot shots at the fraud who has no intention of serving the citizens of New York while she puts her own interests first seeking the White House.  One can only wonder if on the off chance she gets to the White House whose interests she will put first.  Based on her track record it will certainly NOT be the American taxpayers.

 

Iran Produces Undetectable Long Range Stealth Missile

@ 10:33 PM (98 months, 1 day ago)

 

In an effort not to fall behind North Korea in the Axis of Evil power showdown, Iran boasts the capability of launching invisible long range missiles.  Goody Goody.

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's armed forces on Friday successfully test fired a domestically produced missile which can evade radar, state television reported, a development analysts said could be worrying for Western forces in the Gulf.

Western nations have been watching developments in Iran's missile capabilities with concern amid a standoff over the Iranian nuclear program, which the West says is aimed at building atomic bombs. Iran says the program is civilian.

"The missile command of the air force of the Revolutionary Guards has successfully tested a new generation of missiles," Hossein Salami, head of the Revolutionary Guards air force, told state television.

"This missile can evade radar and it can evade anti-missile missiles," he said.

Does an Aging Prostitute Retool or Retire?

@ 11:37 PM (98 months, 2 days ago)

BERLIN (Reuters) - German prostitutes are signing up for a career change, training to become nurses to tend to the country's aging population or working phones as tele-marketers.

Thirty prostitutes have enlisted in a church-funded project in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia and more are on a waiting list, project coordinator Gisela Zohren said.

"Competition in prostitution is fierce and the days when one could make a decent living out of it are long gone, especially once you hit the thirties," Zohren said.

She said prostitutes' fees had hit rock bottom and they were well suited to jobs on offer in the retraining program.

"After years of prostitution, they know how to listen, look after people and are savvy in selling over the phone," she said.

This looks like another discrimination case.  What is the Church doing to retool aging pimps?

Massachusetts Residents Only Allowed Gay Marriage - Tourism Industry Immediately Plummets

@ 11:33 PM (98 months, 2 days ago)

Wait a minute....is this a case of discrimination-discrimination?  Am I getting this right?  Massachusetts gays want to reserve the gay marriage right for themselves to the exclusion of legal and illegal aliens?

BOSTON (Reuters) - Gay couples from American states that ban same-sex marriages cannot legally be wed in Massachusetts, where such unions are legal, the state's highest court ruled on Thursday.

The ruling was made in response to a lawsuit filed by gay couples from Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, which prohibit same-sex marriage. It appeared to end the prospect that the liberal New England state could become a U.S. destination for gay couples to marry.

As Predicted Months Ago in This Column, Republican Lynn Swann Leads Incumbent democrat Ed Rendell in Pennsylvania Governor Race

@ 11:22 PM (98 months, 2 days ago)

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Pro Football Hall of Famer Lynn Swann held a slight lead over Gov. Ed Rendell in a statewide poll released Thursday.

Swann's press secretary, Melissa Walters, called the poll "another example of the clear momentum behind Lynn Swann's campaign and the growing support for change and reform in Pennsylvania."

This poll indicates exactly the opposite of the left leaning liberal media's claim that democrats are headed to a big victory in November.  For some reason the media somehow "forgets"  to check in with the majority of Americans.  What's the deal?

Mary Winkler Update - She Wants to Stay in Jail?

@ 11:15 PM (98 months, 2 days ago)

What is going on here?  Are her genius/attorneys going to keep everything hush hush and then spring a never heard of before defense?

SELMER, Tenn.  — A minister's wife charged with shooting her husband to death waived her right to a preliminary hearing Thursday.

The judge ordered Mary Winkler, who has been charged with first-degree murder, to be held in custody until her next court appearance after her lawyers told the court she was not seeking a bond.

Speaking to the press outside the courthouse, her lawyers said there were a number of reasons why bond was not sought.

"Her condition is pretty fragile," defense attorney Leslie Ballin said. "We think it is in her best interest not have bond at this time."

Another member of the defense team, Steve Farese, said that while his client had been a part of every decision involved in the case, she was "having a difficulty staying on point."

They also said Mary Winkler wanted to try to protect her three young daughters from painful details that would emerge at such a hearing.

"We feel it does no one any good to hear bad things said about the mother of children. We don't feel that it does anyone any good to hear gruesome things about their late father," Farese said.

Nancy Pelosi Changes Name and Retires to South Africa

@ 12:37 AM (98 months, 3 days ago)

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African dominatrix has given up her battle to live in a vicarage, telling the church's congregation they can "shove" the disputed residence, a local newspaper reported Wednesday.

The Pretoria News said Marianne Ellis had been renting the manse, or vicarage, at the Doornkloof Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk near Pretoria for some time when church elders discovered her sideline as a local dominatrix and asked her to move.

Ellis and her husband at first sought to fight the church in court, but Tuesday decided to back down, the newspaper said.

"It is a long story, but basically I am tired of fighting, really tired. They can take their manse back, in fact they can shove it," she told the newspaper.

Ellis, who said she was promised a long lease and option to buy the vicarage, had earlier showed reporters her "torture chamber" at the house but said she never had sex with her clients and was not running a brothel.

Following the dispute with the church, Ellis told the Pretoria News she was temporarily calling a halt to her career.

"But I will crack the whip again after we have moved. Then I will be back with a vengeance," the newspaper quoted her as saying.

Immigration Problems WORSE after Bill Clinton 1992 North American Free Trade Agreement

@ 12:22 AM (98 months, 3 days ago)

Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to be able to see what is going on inside.  The immigration problem is not the Mexicans' fault.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - President Vicente Fox paused for a long moment before answering a question on how long it would take Mexico to reach a stage where citizens no longer want to cross the U.S. border to seek work.

"Generations," he finally said.

"It's a long way to narrow the gap ... between incomes in Mexico and on the other side of the border," he said in a recent interview with Reuters.

That income gap is the principal reason why hundreds of thousands of Mexicans cross the border with the U.S. illegally to seek work -- yet it rarely figures in the heated and increasingly emotional debate over immigration now raging in the United States.

Roughly half of Mexico's population lives on less than $5 a day, according to government figures. The U.S. minimum wage is $5.15 an hour. Annual Mexican Gross Domestic Product per capita is just under $7,000. It is almost $44,000 in the United States.

The gap is now wider than it was when Mexico, the United States and Canada signed the North American Free Trade Agreement in 1992.

After seeing all the MTV footage of college women having so much fun on spring break, a group of more mature left wing liberal democrat women decided to try to take a break from 24/7 whining about America and conservatives and went looking for a good time.  They did not have a lot of luck in person so used their spare time to set up a website in hopes of better luck.  Something tells me that only the website host will benefit from this deal.

WOMEN OF THE DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND

Former Professional Wrestlers Now Eligible for Military Service Due to Relaxed Tattoo Rules

@ 12:07 AM (98 months, 3 days ago)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Army, which missed its recruiting goal last year, has relaxed its policy banning certain types of tattoos in a bid to attract new soldiers who otherwise would have been barred from serving.

The Army will now allow new recruits and all its current soldiers to have tattoos on their hands and back of their necks as long as they are not "extremist, indecent, sexist or racist," Army officials said on Wednesday.

The Army said it continues to prohibit tattoos anywhere on the head, face or throat area.

The tattoo policy marks the latest move by the Army to try to boost its ability to attract recruits. The Army has raised the maximum age for enlistment, offered a series of financial incentives for signing up, increased the number of recruiters and hired a new advertising agency.

Flight of Mary Winkler After Killing - Evidence of Guilt?

Mary Winkler, Husband Killer, Hires Mensa Genius as Defense Attorney

@ 11:41 PM (98 months, 4 days ago)

Mrs. Winkler's attorney uses the third grade "the dog ate my homework" defense.

SELMER, Tenn. - Mary Winkler, the woman charged with killing her minister husband, is “very confused and overwhelmed” by what’s happening, her lawyer told NBC News on Tuesday.

She is “very detached, very detached from the gravity of the overall situation, very reserved, very quiet, very confused and overwhelmed,” Steve Forese said on the “Today” show.

Next week, it will probably be "He deserved it and I didn't do it".

WASHINGTON - Caspar W. Weinberger, who served in the Cabinets of Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan died Tuesday at 88.  He became the consummate Cold Warrior as Ronald Reagan’s secretary of defense.

“I was deeply disturbed to learn of the death of a great American and a dear friend,” said former Secretary of State Colin Powell. “Cap Weinberger was an indefatigable fighter for peace through strength. He served his nation in war and peace in so many ways.”

“He gave everything to his country, to public office and to his family,” Caspar Weinberger Jr. said.

Study: Cockroach Larvae Prefer Company of Others
Tuesday, March 28, 2006
By Bjorn Carey

When it comes to making decisions, cockroaches take a Musketeer-like "all for one, and one for all" approach.

Researchers offered 50 cockroach larvae their choice of three shelters that could each house more than 50 cockroaches. All 50 tended to crowd into the same shelter.

When the shelters were swapped with smaller versions that could hold just 40 cockroaches, the group would typically split into two groups of about 25, leaving one of the three houses still unoccupied.

"It's better, in terms of group benefits, to have a 50/50 split instead of one important, large group and one that's less robust," said study coauthor José Halloy of the Free University of Brussels in Belgium.

France Makes the World Safer

New Ultra Conservative View on Immigration Bill

@ 09:54 PM (98 months, 4 days ago)

In the last couple of days I have heard all the arguments and as of now I have done a 180.  The last immigration bill was not enforced.  This one will not be enforced.  The illegals laugh and ignore the laws due to lack of enforcement and never pay or do what is required anyway.  I am coming around to looking for the silver lining in this.  Don't spend any more money on this.  Give them social security numbers, collect taxes from them, have them pay into social security and maybe my family will get the social security benefits I have and will continue to pay for and with any luck by the time they are ready to collect, the cupboard will be bare and they will be screwed.

In the meantime, maybe the cuisine at Taco Bell will improve.  Getting yard work done will be cheaper.  The successful immigrants will be conservatives and life will go on.

democrats-There are too Many Illegal Immigrants to Deal With So Let Them All Have Amnesty

@ 11:43 PM (98 months, 5 days ago)

Current estimates put the number of illegal (no green cards, visas, work visas, ILLEGAL TOTALLY) in excess of 11 Million.  Rather than saying gee, this is a problem, my liberal friends say let's give up and let them all stay.  Guess who is leading the way?

“All Americans wanted fairness, and they got it this evening,” said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, the Massachusetts Democrat who played a pivotal role in drafting the legislation. The bill was approved 12-6.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved election-year immigration legislation Monday that clears the way for millions of undocumented workers to seek U.S. citizenship without having to first leave the country.

After days of street demonstrations that stretched from California to the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, the committee also voted to strip out proposed criminal penalties for residents found to be in this country illegally.  (An astute observor might suggest that this would have been an excellent opportunity to round up a huge number of illegals in one fell swoop for immediate deportation.  However, my liberal friends over at the INS would never consider ENFORCING THE LAW).

For good measure, aiders and abetters of illegals would be immune from from criminal prosecution under the proposed legislation.

Earlier Monday, as more than a thousand immigration rights activists rallied outside the Capitol, the Senate Judiciary Committee adopted an amendment by Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., that would protect church and charitable groups, as well as individuals, from criminal prosecution for providing food, shelter, medical care and counseling to undocumented immigrants.

“Charitable organizations, like individuals, should be able to provide humanitarian assistance to immigrants without fearing prosecution,” Durbin said.

Did you Know that Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers Were Both Highly Decorated Military Heroes?

@ 11:12 PM (98 months, 5 days ago)

Captain  Kangaroo passed away on January 23, 2004 as age 76 , which is odd, because he always looked  to be 76. (DOB: 6/27/27) His death reminded me of the following  story.

Some people have been a bit  offended that the actor, Lee Marvin, is buried in a grave alongside 3 and  4 star generals at Arlington National Cemetery. His marker gives his  name, rank (PVT) and service  (USMC). Nothing else. Here's  a guy who was only a famous movie star who served his time, why the heck  does he rate burial with these guys? Well, following is the amazing answer:


I always liked Lee Marvin, but didn't know the extent of  his Corps experiences. 


In a time  when many Hollywood stars served their country in the armed forces often in rear echelon posts where they were carefully protected, only to  be trotted out to perform for the cameras in war bond promotions,

Lee Marvin was a genuine hero.  He won the Navy Cross at  Iwo  Jima. There is only one higher Naval award...  the Medal Of  Honor.

If that is a surprising comment on  the true character of the man, he credits his sergeant with an even  greater show of bravery.

Dialog from "The  Tonight Show with Johnny Carson": His guest was Lee Marvin.  Johnny said, "Lee, I'll bet a lot of people are  unaware that you were a Marine in the initial landing at Iwo  Jima...and that during the course of that  action you earned the Navy Cross and were severely wounded." 
 "Yeah, yeah... I got shot  square in the bottom and they gave me the Cross for securing a hot spot  about halfway up Suribachi. Bad thing about getting shot up on a mountain is guys getting' shot hauling you down. But,Johnny, at Iwo  I served under the bravest man I ever knew... We both got  the cross the same day, but what he did for his Cross made mine look cheap in comparison. That dumb guy actually stood up on Red beach and directed his troops to move forward and get the hell off the beach.  Bullets flying by, with mortar rounds landing everywhere and he stood  there as the main target of gunfire so that he could get his men to safety. He did this on more than one occasion because his men's safety  was more important than his own life.
That Sergeant and I have been  lifelong friends. When they brought me off Suribachi we passed the Sergeant and he lit a smoke and passed it to me, lying on my belly on the litter and said, where'd they get you Lee?' Well Bob... if you make it  home be fore me, tell Mom to sell the  outhouse!"
Johnny, I'm not lying,  Sergeant Keeshan was the bravest man I ever knew.
The Sergeant's name is  Bob Keeshan. You and the world know him as Captain Kangaroo."
On another  note, there was this wimpy little man (who just passed away) on PBS gentle and quiet. Mr. Rogers is another of those you would least suspect  of being anything but what he now portrays to our youth. But Mr. Rogers was a U.S. Navy Seal, combat-proven in Vietnam with over twenty-five confirmed  kills to his name.  He wore a long-sleeved sweater on TV, to cover the many tattoos on his forearm and biceps.  He was a  master in small arms and hand-to-hand combat, able to disarm or kill in a  heartbeat.
After the war Mr. Rogers  became an ordained Presbyterian minister and therefore a pacifist. Vowing  to never harm another human and also dedicating the rest of his life to trying to help lead children on the right path in life. He hid away the tattoos and his past life and won our hearts with his quiet wit and  charm.
America's real heroes don't flaunt what they did; they quietly go about their day-to-day lives, doing what they do best.  They earned our respect and the freedoms that we all  enjoy.
Look around and see if you can  find one of those heroes in your midst.
Often, they are the ones you'd  least suspect, but would most like to have on your side if anything ever  happened.
Take the time to thank anyone that has fought for our freedom. With encouragement they could be the next Captain Kangaroo or Mr.Rogers

The Sleazy Schindler Family Can't Let Go: Write Book to Further Terri Schivao's Suffering

@ 02:53 PM (98 months, 7 days ago)

Terri Schiavo's parents and brother apparently do not feel that they have not gotten enough attention and now are seeking more with a book.

The autopsy proved that Terri was totally brain dead despite the Schindler's meritless claims to the contrary.  If they want to help a worthy cause they should move on and raise funds for the RNC.

Bobby and Suzanne said they try not to think much about Michael, but believe he should be questioned about what happened on the day Terri collapsed.

"We believe he knows what happened to her that night," Bobby Schindler said.

A state investigation found no evidence of foul play and an autopsy found no sign that Terri had suffered any trauma or abuse, but could not determine the cause of her collapse.

These dopes need a huge dose of REALITY.

Savanna Samson, star of "The New Devil in Miss Jones" and Vatican Vintner Team up to Produce Better than Communion Wine

@ 02:45 PM (98 months, 7 days ago)

 

The world of wine-making has long attracted celebrities of all stripes who want try their hands at producing a virtuous vintage, including the likes of filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, musicians Jerry Garcia and Olivia Newton-John, and even pro golfers Ernie Els and Greg Norman.

So we shouldn't be surprised that an adult-film star has decided to dip her toes into the wine vat.

But Savanna Samson, star of "The New Devil in Miss Jones," has gone further than simply slapping a steamy label on some cheesy chardonnay. Her Italian red wine has received a score of 90 to 91 out of 100 by wine guru Robert Parker.

The key, she told Reuters recently, was lining up a respected wine maker. So she convinced Italy's Roberto Cipresso — also a vintner to the Vatican — to join the project.

I Would Love to Hear One Liberal Plan for Iraq

@ 01:26 PM (98 months, 7 days ago)

After skimming the comments of my liberal friends the last week or so about Iraq, I am pretty clear that they do not care for the current situation. What I am not clear about is what any of my liberal friends has as a plan for what to do from here. I am curious what my liberal friends have in mind since they are not satisfied with the status quo. I pledge to carefully consider and thoughtfully comments about, if appropriate, all plans going forward with Iraq that I read written by my liberal friends.

Sincerely,your friend,

muslims Have Multitude of World Takeover Plans in Addition to Terror and Violence

@ 01:17 PM (98 months, 7 days ago)

The muslim power hungry deal is not new.  Their plans are simply becoming more visible the the people who failed to notice before.  Of course it is easier to notice loud spoken direct threats, terror and killing.  That is just the tip of the iceberg.  This woman make a very interesting case.

Oriana Fallaci Photo by Francesco Scavullo 

In The Force of Reason, the controversial Italian journalist and novelist Oriana Fallaci illuminates one of the central enigmas of our time. How did Europe become home to an estimated 20 million Muslims in a mere three decades?

How did Islam go from being a virtual non-factor to a religion that threatens the preeminence of Christianity on the Continent? How could the most popular name for a baby boy in Brussels possibly be Mohammed? Can it really be true that Muslims plan to build a mosque in London that will hold 40,000 people? That Dutch cities like Amsterdam and Rotterdam are close to having Muslim majorities? How was Europe, which was saved by the U.S. in world wars I and II, and whose Muslim Bosnians were rescued by the U.S. as recently as 1999, transformed into a place in which, as Fallaci puts it, “if I hate Americans I go to Heaven and if I hate Muslims I go to Hell?”

In attempting to answer these questions, the author, who is stricken with cancer and has been hounded by death threats and charges of “Islamophobia” (she is due to go on trial in France this June), has combined history with episodes of riveting firsthand reportage into a form that reads like a real-life conspiracy thriller.

If The Force of Reason sells a lot of copies, which it almost certainly will (800,000 were sold in Italy alone, and the book is in the top 100 on Amazon ), it will be not only because of the heat generated by her topic, but also because Fallaci speaks for the ordinary reader. There is no one she despises more than the intellectual “cicadas,” as she calls them — “You see them every day on television; you read them every day in the newspapers” — who deny they are in the midst of a cultural, political and existential war with Islam, of which terrorism is the flashiest, but ultimately least important component. Nonetheless, to give the reader a taste of what Muslim conquest can be like, in her first chapter, Fallaci provides a brief tour of the religion’s bloodiest imperial episodes and later does an amusing job of debunking some of its more exaggerated claims to cultural and scientific greatness.

The book is also animated by a world-class journalist’s dismay that she could have missed the story of her lifetime for as long as she did. In the 1960s and ’70s, when she was a Vietnam War correspondent and a legendarily ferocious interviewer going mano a mano with the likes of Henry Kissinger and Yasser Arafat, Fallaci was simply too preoccupied with the events of the moment to notice that an entirely different narrative was rapidly taking shape — namely, the transformation of the West. There were clues, certainly. As when, in 1972, she interviewed the Palestinian terrorist George Habash, who told her (while a bodyguard aimed a submachine gun at her head) that the Palestinian problem was about far more than Israel. The Arab goal, Habash declared, was to wage war “against Europe and America” and to ensure that henceforth “there would be no peace for the West.” The Arabs, he informed her, would “advance step by step. Millimeter by millimeter. Year after year. Decade after decade. Determined, stubborn, patient. This is our strategy. A strategy that we shall expand throughout the whole planet.”

Fallaci thought he was referring simply to terrorism. Only later did she realize that he “also meant the cultural war, the demographic war, the religious war waged by stealing a country from its citizens … In short, the war waged through immigration, fertility, presumed pluriculturalism.” It is a low-level but deadly war that extends across the planet, as any newspaper reader can see.

Fallaci is not the first person to ponder the rapidity of the ongoing Muslim transformation of Europe. As the English travel writer Jonathan Raban wrote in Arabia: A Journey Through the Labyrinth (1979), in the mid-1970s Arabs seemed to arrive in London almost overnight. “One day Arabs were a remote people … camping out in tents with camels … the next, they were neighbors.” On the streets of West London appeared black-clad women adorned with beaked masks that made them look “like hooded falcons.” Dressed for the desert (and walking precisely four steps ahead of the women), Arab men bestrode the sidewalks “like a crew of escaped film extras, their headdresses aswirl on the wind of exhaust fumes.”

Writers far better acquainted with the Muslim world than Raban have been equally perplexed. In 1995, the late American novelist Paul Bowles, a longtime resident of Tangier, told me that he could not understand why the French had allowed millions of North African Muslims into their country. Bowles had chosen to live among Muslims for most of his life, yet he obviously considered it highly unlikely that so many of them could be successfully integrated into a modern, secular European state.

Perhaps Bowles would have been interested in this passage from Fallaci’s book: “In 1974 [Algerian President] Houari Boumedienne, the man who ousted Ben Bella three years after Algerian independence, spoke before the General Assembly of the United Nations. And without circumlocutions he said: ‘One day millions of men will leave the southern hemisphere of this planet to burst into the northern one. But not as friends. Because they will burst in to conquer, and they will conquer by populating it with their children. Victory will come to us from the wombs of our women.’”

Such a bald statement of purpose by a nation’s president before an international forum seems incredible. Yet even in British journalist Adam LeBor’s A Heart Turned East (1997), a work of profound, almost supine sympathy for the plight of Muslim immigrants in the West, a London-based mullah is quoted as saying, “We cannot conquer these people with tanks and troops, so we have got to overcome them by force of numbers.” In fact, such remarks are commonplace. Just this week, Mullah Krekar, a Muslim supremacist living in Oslo, informed the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten that Muslims would change Norway, not the other way around. “Just look at the development within Europe, where the number of Muslims is expanding like mosquitoes,” he said. “By 2050, 30 percent of the population in Europe will be Muslim.”

In other words, Europe will be conquered by being turned into “Eurabia,” which is what Fallaci believes it is well on the way to becoming. Leaning heavily on the researches of Bat Ye’or, author of Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis, Fallaci recounts in fascinating detail the actual origin of the word “Eurabia,” which has now entered the popular lexicon. Its first known use, it turns out, was in the mid-1970s, when a journal of that name was printed in Paris (naturally), written in French (naturally), and edited by one Lucien Bitterlin, then president of the Association of Franco-Arab Solidarity and currently the Chairman of the French-Syrian Friendship Association. Eurabia (price, five francs) was jointly published by Middle East International (London), France-Pays Arabes (Paris), the Groupe d’Etudes sur le Moyen-Orient (Geneva) and the European Coordinating Committee of the Associations for Friendship with the Arab World, which Fallaci describes as an arm of what was then the European Economic Community, now the European Union. These entities, Fallaci says, not mincing her words, were the official perpetrators “of the biggest conspiracy that modern history has created,” and Eurabia was their house organ.

Briefly put, the alleged plot was an arrangement between European and Arab governments according to which the Europeans, still reeling from the first acts of PLO terrorism and eager for precious Arabian oil made significantly more precious by the 1973 OPEC crisis, agreed to accept Arab “manpower” (i.e., immigrants) along with the oil. They also agreed to disseminate propaganda about the glories of Islamic civilization, provide Arab states with weaponry, side with them against Israel and generally toe the Arab line on all matters political and cultural. Hundreds of meetings and seminars were held as part of the “Euro-Arab Dialogue,” and all, according to the author, were marked by European acquiescence to Arab requests. Fallaci recounts a 1977 seminar in Venice, attended by delegates from 10 Arab nations and eight European ones, concluding with a unanimous resolution calling for “the diffusion of the Arabic language” and affirming “the superiority of Arab culture.”

While the Arabs demanded that Europeans respect the religious, political and human rights of Arabs in the West, not a peep came from the Europeans about the absence of freedom in the Arab world, not to mention the abhorrent treatment of women and other minorities in countries like Saudi Arabia. No demand was made that Muslims should learn about the glories of western civilization as Europeans were and are expected to learn about the greatness of Islamic civilization. In other words, according to Fallaci, a substantial portion of Europe’s cultural and political independence was sold off by a coalition of ex-communists and socialist politicians. Are we surprised? Fallaci isn’t. In 1979, she notes, “the Italian or rather European Left had fallen in love with Khomeini just as now it has fallen in love with Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein and Arafat.”

Considerably less intemperate than her last book on the topic of radical Islam, the volcanically angry The Rage and the Pride, The Force of Reason is despairing, but often surprisingly funny. (“The rage and the pride have married and produced a sturdy son: the disdain,” she writes with characteristic wit.) And, Fallaci being Fallaci, it is occasionally over the top and will no doubt be deeply offensive to many, particularly when, in a postscript the book might have been better off without, she claims that there is no such thing as moderate Islam. Nonetheless, the voice and warmth and humor of the author light up its pages, particularly when she takes a leaf out of Saul Bellow’s Herzog by firing off impassioned letters to the famous both living and dead. She is savage about the Left, the “Peace” movement (war is a fundamental, if regrettable, condition of life, she states), the Catholic Church, the media and, of course, Islam itself, which she considers theological totalitarianism and a deadly threat to the world. She is much more optimistic about America than Europe, citing the bravery of New Yorkers who celebrated New Year’s Eve in Times Square despite widely publicized terrorism threats, but here one feels that she is clutching at straws. Though Fallaci now lives in New York, little amity has been extended to her by her peers since the post-9/11 publication of The Rage and the Pride, and she remains almost as much of a media pariah here as she does in Europe. The major difference is that we’re not putting her on trial.

As that Norwegian Mullah told Aftenposten, “Our way of thinking … will prove more powerful than yours.” One hopes he’s wrong, but if he is, it will be ordinary Americans and Europeans, including courageous Arab-Americans like L.A. resident Wafa Sultan and the Somali-born Dutch politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali (two women openly challenging Islamist supremacism), who prove him so, and not our intellectual classes (artists, pundits, filmmakers, actors, writers …). Many of the latter, consumed by Bush-hatred and cultural self-loathing, are perilously close to becoming today’s equivalent of the great Norwegian novelist Knut Hamsun, who so hated the British Empire that he sided with the Nazis in World War II, to his everlasting shame. The Force of Reason, at the very least, is a welcome and necessary antidote to the prevailing intellectual atmosphere.

FEMA Cancels New Orleans Cleanup and Rebuilding

@ 05:20 PM (98 months, 7 days ago)

Citing the ridiculous of spending further money on a swamp, FEMA issued a press release freezing any payments relating to New Orleans in any way even for project underway or completed.

I agree.  What a waste of taxpayers' money.  Build a new town in an open space location in the country...for example there is plenty in Alaska and give any New Orleans resident the option of moving.  Let the river, ocean and weather clean up the remaining debris and move the port to a nearby location.

Issue fixed.

DC Statehood?

@ 03:08 AM (98 months, 8 days ago)
The sensible approach is to shrink the size of DC to that necessary for REAL government business offices and historic public buildings, wall it off and declare the remaining land between Maryland and Virginia a territory and install a military governor.  When that stage is completed, the area should be razed and replaced with mobile homes and Walmarts (a place to live and work).  Since it will be a territory, the residents will have no welfare or medicaid eligibility hence the need for Walmarts (and the motivation to get a JOB.  Also unde rconsideraton are a few gated country clubs with helicopter pads in case it is difficult to get a decent tee time at regional Virginia and Maryland golf courses.

New Orleans Should be Fenced Off and Declared a Permanent Wetland Preserve

@ 02:45 AM (98 months, 8 days ago)

The so called victims should be given the opportunity to move into new homes in North Dakota after they have earned a fresh start by earning sweat equity Habitat for Humanity style and the opportunity to pay off the cost of building materials interest free.  BTW this is NOT a government program.  At the same time the alien concept of a JOB should be undertaken and finally the learning of self responsibility and accountability rather than critisizing others because THEY lived in a known declared flood zone.

American taxpayer should have no responsibility to rebuild a swamp where no one had any business living in the first place.  Something called MOTIVATION needs to sink in for these whiners to grow up and move on.  Their delusional propagandizing supporters should focus on their famiilies and their JOBS.  When the criticism only policy stops, my liberal friends may have time available to create an IDEA.

Delusional Libyan Muammar Gaddafi Says He is Running a Democracy

@ 09:19 PM (98 months, 8 days ago)

I could be wrong but the last time I looked in a democracy there were free ELECTIONS Muammar.  Incidentally, he doesn't look bad for a Seven Eleven owner does he?

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi lectured a U.S. audience on democracy on Thursday and said Libya is the only real democracy in the world.

Via a video link, Gaddafi addressed an unprecedented gathering of U.S. and Libyan academics prompted by a thaw in relations since the former pariah state decided in 2003 to abandon nuclear weapons and took responsibility for the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

He touted Libya's political system as superior to "farcical" and "fake" parliamentary and representative democracies in the West."

"There is no state with a democracy except Libya on the whole planet," Gaddafi said to the conference at Columbia University in New York.

Libya's Jamahiriyah system, under which Libyans can air their views at "people's congresses," is genuine democracy, said Gaddafi, who spoke through a translator and was dressed in purple robes and seated at a desk in front of a map of Africa.

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's World Factbook describes Libya's government as: "Jamahiriyah (a state of the masses) in theory, governed by the populace through local councils; in fact, a military dictatorship."

Gaddafi said Libya's new openness would not lead Libyans to covet what they do not have -- on the contrary, he said, the rest of the world would soon be emulating Libya.

"Countries like the United States, India, China, the Russian Federation, are in bad need of this Jamahiriyah system," he said. "This is a savior to them."

Challenged by the U.S. moderator about freedom of speech, Gaddafi said every Libyan was free to express his opinions at the congresses and that was a better forum than a newspaper.

Jon Alterman, director of the Middle East Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, one of two U.S. moderators, said some of Gaddafi's comments might have sounded jarring to Americans.

"One of the hard things when you haven't talked to somebody for more than 30 years is we don't really understand how we sound to them and they don't understand how they sound to us," he said. "We obviously have a way to go until we're speaking the same language."

 

Liberal Fascism : The Totalitarian Temptation from Mussolini to Hillary Clinton (Hardcover)

@ 09:08 PM (98 months, 8 days ago)

by Jonah Goldberg

I plan on reading this over the weekend and based on the summary I would heartily recommend it especially to my liberal friends.

Since the rise and fall of the Nazis in the midtwentieth century, fascism has been seen as an extreme right-wing phenomenon. Liberals have kept that assumption alive, hurling accusations of fascism at their conservative opponents. LIBERAL FASCISM offers a startling new perspective on the theories and practices that define fascist politics. Replacing conveniently manufactured myths with surprising and enlightening research, Jonah Goldberg shows that the original fascists were really on the Left and that liberals, from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to Hillary Clinton, have advocated policies and principles remarkably similar to those of Hitler's National Socialism.

Goldberg draws striking parallels between historic fascism and contemporary liberal doctrines. He argues that "political correctness" on campuses and calls for campaign finance reform echo the Nazis' suppression of free speech; and that liberals, like their fascist forebears, dismiss the democratic process when it yields results they dislike, insist on the centralization of economic decision-making, and seek to insert the authority of the state in our private lives-from bans on smoking to gun control. Covering such hot issues as morality, anti-Semitism, science versus religion, health care, and cultural values, he boldly illustrates the resemblances between the opinions advanced by Hitler and Mussolini and the current views of the Left.

Impeccably researched and persuasively argued, LIBERAL FASCISM will elicit howls of indignation from the liberal establishment-and rousing cheers from the Right.

Future of John Kerry as an Old Geezer

@ 08:36 PM (98 months, 8 days ago)

This will happen in the NEAR future.

While visiting his niece, an elderly man had what was apparently a  stroke.   The woman drove wildly to get him to the emergency room. After what seemed like a very long wait, the E.R. doctor appeared, wearing his scrubs and a long face.  "Sadly", he said, "I'm afraid that your uncle's brain is dead, but his heart is still beating."  "Oh, dear," cried the woman, her hands clasped against her cheeks with shock.   "We've never had a Democrat in the family before!"

The fact that Kerry is the ONLY non Republican in the Kerry clan has NOT been reported in the mainstream news.

Brief Reprise of Hillary and Bill Clinton "Amazing Feats"

@ 08:23 PM (98 months, 8 days ago)

Bill Clinton registers for the draft on September 08, 1964, accepting all contractual conditions of registering for the draft.  Selective Service Number 326 46 228.  Bill Clinton classified 2-S on November 17, 1964.  Bill Clinton reclassified 1-A on March 20, 1968.  Bill Clinton ordered to report for induction on July 28, 1969.  Bill Clinton refuses to report and is not inducted into the military.  Bill Clinton reclassified 1-D after enlisting in the United States Army Reserves on August 07, 1969, under authority of Col. E. Holmes.  Clinton signs enlistment papers and takes oath of enlistment.  Bill Clinton fails to report to his duty station at the University of Arkansas ROTC, September 1969.  Bill Clinton reclassified 1-A on October 30, 1969, as enlistment with Army Reserves is revoked by Colonel E. Holmes and Clinton now AWOL and subject to arrest under Public Law 90-40 (2)(a) registrant who has failed to report...remain liable for induction.'  Bill Clinton's birth date lottery number is 311, drawn December 1, 1969, but anyone who has already been ordered to report for induction is INELIGIBLE!  Bill Clinton runs for Congress (1974), while a  fugitive from justice under Public Law 90-40.  Bill Clinton runs for Arkansas Attorney General (1976), while a fugitive from justice. Bill Clinton receives pardon on January 21,1977, from President Carter.  Bill Clinton FIRST PARDONED FEDERAL FELON ever to serve as President of the United States.  All these facts come from Freedom of Information requests, public laws, and various books that have been published, and have not been refuted by Clinton. 

After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, President Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.  After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five US military personnel; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down nd punished.  After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.  After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.  After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U.S. sailors; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.

Maybe if Clinton had kept those promises, an estimated 3,000 people in New York and Washington, DC that are now dead would be alive today.

AN INTERESTING QUESTION:

This question was raised on a Philly radio call-in show. Without casting stones, it is a legitimate question.  There are two men, both extremely wealthy. One develops relatively cheap software and gives billions of dollars to charity.  The other sponsors terrorism. That being the case, why was it that the Clinton Administration spent more money chasing down Bill Gates over the eight years in office, than Osama bin Laden?

THINK ABOUT IT!

It is a strange turn of events. Hillary gets $8 Million for her forth coming memoir. Bill gets about $12 Million for his memoir yet to be written. This from two people who spent 8 years being unable to recall anything about past events while under oath.

US Postal Service Issues Commerative Hillary Clinton Stamp

@ 08:16 PM (98 months, 8 days ago)

The US Postal Service created a stamp with a picture of Senator Hillary Clinton to honor her achievements as the First Lady of our nation. In daily use, however, it was shown that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.


This enraged Senator Clinton, who demanded a full investigation After a month of investigating, a special commission published the following findings:

*The stamp was in perfect order.
*There was nothing wrong with the glue/adhesive.
*People were spitting on the wrong side.

    Iran However Not Yet Admitting Nuclear Capability

    @ 12:14 AM (98 months, 11 days ago)

    Since Iran has not official notified the world that it has nuclear weapons, I guess they don't.  Since North Korea is honest about having them, it must make sense that Iran does not.

    Cindy Sheehan's good friend thinks so:

    CARACAS, Venezuela  — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez defended Iran's nuclear program Tuesday, saying Washington's firm opposition to Tehran and the invasion of Iraq both resulted from America's insatiable thirst for oil. Chavez, one of the most outspoken critics of U.S. foreign policy, claimed the Bush administration is falsely accusing Iran of trying to build an atomic bomb as a pretext for seizing control of the Middle Eastern nation's vast petroleum reserves.

    "I'm completely sure that it's absolutely false that the Iranian government is developing an atomic bomb. It's the United States that has atomic bombs," Chavez said. 

    Twenty-seven of the 35 members of the International Atomic Energy Agency, a U.N. nuclear watchdog, voted in January to refer Iran to the Security Council over fears it aims to build an atomic bomb. Venezuela, Cuba and Syria voted against it, and the rest abstained.

    Message to President Bush from left wing liberals:  "Our friends in Iran and North Korea are peaceloving innocent victims of US imperialism.  Hugo Chavez said it, it must be true."

    North Korea Threatens Pre-emptive Nuclear Strike in US

    Even thought NORTH KOREA itself says it, the President's critics will no doubt find a way to twist whatever he says into an attempt to mislead the American people.

    SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea suggested Tuesday it had the ability to launch a pre-emptive attack on the United States, according to the North's official news agency.

    Charges Dropped in Debra Lafave Student Teacher sex Scandal

    @ 11:46 PM (98 months, 11 days ago)

    This whole story has me totally baffled.  What is or was this case about anyway if this is where it ends?

    ORLANDO, Fla. - State prosecutors decided Tuesday to drop charges against a former Tampa teacher accused of having sex with a 14-year-old middle school student.

     

    At a news conference in Tampa, Lafave said she has bipolar disorder, and her attorney said she is getting treatment.

    “I want the world to see that bipolar is real,” Lafave said. “Not one time has the media brought up the subject of my bipolar. I challenge you to read a book or an article on bipolar illness.”

    Her relationship with the student, Lafave said, was a result of her bipolar disorder.

    Opinion Survey - What about Saddam? Should He Still be in Power? Can Anyone Name a "Nice" War?

    @ 11:35 PM (98 months, 11 days ago)
    What about a "happy war"?  Regardless of all the disagreement about the details, will history view it as a good thing or a bad thing that Saddam was removed from power?

    How many of the above seemingly worked up commenters about the President and the war in Iraq would prefer that Saddam was still in power?

    War is not pretty. Even the movie “Private Ryan” is not pretty. Who won world war II? Is who won a good thing or a bad thing?

    Walmart Wreaking Worldwide Economic Havoc

    @ 11:41 PM (98 months, 12 days ago)

    Not satisfied with its US employees using Medicaid for healthcare, Walmart has similar strategies for global lifestyle improvement.

    Reuters correspondent Emily Kaiser is in Asia, reporting on U.S. retailers operating in the region. Here are her impressions on the prospects for big retailers in India:

    Sitting in a Mumbai taxi as the driver angrily honks at an endless stream of trucks, buses, cars, pushcarts, pedestrians and cows, it's hard to imagine how foreign retailers could operate here. Then you hear about customers causing traffic jams as they flock to clearance sales and it becomes obvious why Wal-Mart and others are fighting so hard to open stores in India.

    The new shopping malls popping up on the outskirts of Delhi and other major cities sell Benetton clothing, Nike sneakers and Nokia phones. Western music plays over the loudspeakers. It's easy to forget that this is a developing country -- until the power goes out and the escalators stop with a jerk. Customers just walk up and continue their shopping. A few minutes later, the lights come back on.

    Analysts in India say foreign retailers will bring much-need investment and expertise to a fast-growing retail segment that needs to solve critical infrastructure problems. In a country where millions go to bed hungry, some 40 percent of farm produce spoils before reaching consumers. That may be the most compelling argument for allowing Wal-Mart to come in. Supply chain is Wal-Mart's greatest strength.

    The opposition raises a strong case for keeping Wal-Mart out. Will foreign retailers really be able to create enough jobs to make up for the stores that will inevitably close? An efficient supply chain means cutting out the six or seven intermediaries. What happens to them? And how will the arrival of superstores affect a community built around a central market?

    The wild card is exports. In China, for example, Wal-Mart turned local suppliers into global export partners, bringing massive amounts of money and new jobs. They hope to do the same in India. Wal-Mart already exports about $1.8 billion to $2.0 billion a year from India and sees room for growth in key categories such as textiles and jewelry.

    The side effect of ramping up exports is criticism back home. Many Americans blame Wal-Mart for widening the trade gap with its $18 billion a year in Chinese imports. Would a "Made in India" label draw any less criticism?

    Court Calls Fake Israel Doctor Who Claimed "Enhancement" Improvements by Hanging and Stretching a "Lunatic'

    @ 11:33 PM (98 months, 12 days ago)

    If the fake doctor is a lunatic what does that make his fake patients...super lunatics?  Rumor has it that a number of our liberal friends have actually tried this.

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli court sentenced a man to two years in prison Sunday for operating a fake clinic that offered penis enhancements and so-called medical treatments to make people taller, which failed to work.

    Simon Sofer told dozens of clients he was a doctor and said he could add up to 10 cm (3.9 inches) to their height or six cm (2.4 inches) to their genitals, the Tel Aviv court said.

    His clinic, in operation since 1999, was not medically supervised, a government prosecutor had told the court.

    Sofer has appealed the conviction.

    He pre-charged patients 5,250 and 16,000 shekels ($1,125 and $3,430) to increase their height with a Russian-made treatment method. He told the court genitalia enlargements were not performed, despite advertisements that promised them.

    People who sought to become taller were suspended from the air by their arms and legs, or had their bodies stretched with weights. Others were poked with needles or given food supplements and exercises to perform at home.

    "Only a lunatic could take a person who has not been checked (by a doctor) and hang him upside down," the court in a transcript quoted a witness as saying at one trial session in February.

    The court said Sofer had endangered the health of his clients and that none had received their "expected" result.

    Anyone with an Internet connection and a computer can do just that, thanks to about 30 cameras and other recording devices set up on Alaska's Augustine Volcano that are streaming information to a Web site hosted by the Alaska Volcano Observatory, a joint federal-state office.

    The site http://www.avo.alaska.edu/activity/Augustine.php has received over 253 million hits since the start of the year, becoming a popular destination for everyone from scientists to amateur volcano buffs who want to keep tabs on the restless 4,134-foot (1,260-meter) volcano.

    Bob Novak Sees Hillary Clinton - Al Gore Mutual Self Destruction

    @ 08:27 PM (98 months, 13 days ago)

    This is the kind of move that will result in a Republican winning in 2008.  One can only wonder which of the two will get the support of Bill Clinton.  Who knows, the former President might back someone else :

    WASHINGTON -- Democratic insiders take seriously a possible new try for the presidency by Al Gore and say he is capable of raising more money than the presumptive front-runner, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
     
    Clinton's team has attempted to foreclose conventional Democratic money sources, drying up funding for her potential presidential rivals. She has $17.1 million cash on hand, more than any other possible candidate. Her current fund-raising tour is aimed at an additional $40 million.

     However, party operatives believe former Vice President Gore can outdo Clinton through unconventional fund-raising on the Internet. By campaigning left of Clinton, Gore appeals to ardent anti-war Democrats. Gore's first presidential run in 1988 positioned him as the centrist candidate, to the right of eventual nominee Michael Dukakis.

    Hillary (not Bill this time) Implicated in Sex Scandal

    @ 01:20 PM (98 months, 14 days ago)

    The following quote is from the January 1994 issue of American Spectator,
    article entitled "Living with the Clintons" by David Brock


    "Patterson once saw the two in a compromising position at a birthday
    party for Hillary held at the little Rock French restaurant
    Alouette's. Bill also attended. While seated at the restaurant's bar,
    outside the dining room, Patterson said he observed Hillary and
    another woman from the Rose firm, Carolyn Huber, come out to the bar
    for a private chat. Soon thereafter, Foster emerged from the dining
    room on his way to the men's room. 'He came up behind Hillary, and
    squeezed her rear end with both of his hands. Then  he winked and gave
    me the 'OK'  sign,'  Patterson said. 'On the way back, Huber was
    turned away, and  Vince put his hand over one of Hillary's breasts and
    made the same 'OK' sign to me. And she just stood there cooing, 'Oh
    Vince. Oh  Vince.'"

    Editor's note:  It is doubtful Foster's hands were able to cover very much of THAT butt.

    After poor Foster died following his entangelment in Hillary the spiderwoman's web, she tried out a few others for a test drive.  Her sexual experimentation process is ongoing.

    AAA Recommendations for Leftwing Liberals Traveling Through Red States (flyover country)

    @ 12:14 PM (98 months, 14 days ago)

    Because of misunderstandings that frequently develop when Easterners and Californians cross states such as Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, North Dakota, and South Dakota; those states' Tourism Councils have adopted a set of information guidelines. In an effort to help outsiders understand the Midwest, the following list will be handed to each driver entering the state:

    1. That farm boy standing next to the feed bin did more work before breakfast than you do all week at the gym.

    2. It's called a 'gravel road'. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Navigator. I have a four-wheel drive because I need it. Drive it or get it out of the way.

    3. We all started hunting and fishing when we were seven years old. Yeah, we shot Bambi. We got over it.

    4. Any references to "corn fed" when talking about our women will get you whipped... by our women.

    5. Go ahead and bring your $600 Orvis Fly Rod. Don't cry to us if a flathead catfish breaks it off at the handle. We have a name for those little trout you fish for...bait.

    6. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.

    7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of mallards are making their final approach, we will shoot it. You might hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

    8. That's right. Whiskey is only two bucks. We can buy a fifth for what you paid in the airport for one drink.

    9. No, there's no "Vegetarian Special" on the menu. Order steak. Order it rare. Or, you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the two pounds of ham and turkey.

    10. You bring Coke into my house but it better be brown, wet, and served over ice.

    11. So you have a sixty thousand-dollar car you drive on weekends. We're real impressed. We have quarter of a million-dollar combine that we use two weeks a year.

    12. Let's get this straight. We have one stoplight in town. We stop when it's red. We may even stop when it's yellow.

    13. Our women hunt, fish, and drive trucks--because they want to. So, you're a feminist. Isn't that cute?

    14. Yeah, we eat catfish. Carp, too--and turtle. You really want sushi and caviar? It's available at the bait shop.

    15. They are pigs. That's what they smell like. Get over it. Don't like it? Interstates 80 &90 go two ways--Interstates 29 &35 go the other two. Pick one and use it accordingly.

    16. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday. You can get breakfast at the church.

    17. So every person in every pickup waves. Its called being friendly. Understand the concept?

    18. Yeah, we have golf courses. Don't hit the ball into the water hazard. It spooks the fish.

    19. That Highway Patrol Officer that just pulled you over for driving like an idiot...his name is "Sir"...no matter how old he is.

    Now, enjoy your visit and go home.

    The Concept that the Right to Choose belongs to Only One Sex is Bogus

    @ 05:29 AM (98 months, 14 days ago)
    A Supreme Court reflecting the view of a majority of Americans (not just an extremely vocal minority) will be dealing with this issue soon. Women who are liberal leftists, live in a dream world and wish REALITY did not exist. Here is a dose of REALITY: Two parents. Two rights to choose. Sorry, unless you are artificially inseminated by an ANONYMOUS male donor who has legally waived his parental rights, there are two parents. That is a fact no matter how you try to overlook it and codependtly control it. It takes a man and a woman to make a baby. Why should a woman have the right to unilaterally decide to abort without the father's consent? Suppose a woman and I decided to have a baby. We both wanted it. Somewhere along the way she changed her mind. Shouldn't I as the father have the right to insist on the baby being born and if the mother abandons the baby, I should have to right to seek child support from her. Conversely, the mother may seek child support from the father even if it was HIS CHOICE to have the baby aborted. Doesn't sound fair to me. Among many other reasons, this is one of the reasons Roe vs. Wade must go. Babies are decisions for BOTH PARENTS, not for lone parent, legislators or courts. The right to choose belongs to MEN and WOMEN. Looking back on the brief period of time historically where there was such an artificial, immoral and irreligious concept that the woman only has the right to choose, citizens of the future will find that concept misguided, ridiculous and a small quirky blip of UNREALITY over the course of time. REALITY will soon exist again the way it has since human kind began.

    Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar-Latest liberal Democrat Poster Boy

    @ 12:19 AM (98 months, 15 days ago)

    Our liberal democrat friends might as well run this bozo in 2008.  This is what they seek for America.  The beginning and end of their vision.  Not the end of criticism and monday mornng quarterbacking from our liberal friends.

    80% of democratic women polled prefered this man's looks to those of Kerry, Gore, Reid and Hillary Clinton.

    What William Safire Wrote in 1998 is Still True Today...Just the democrats Have Different Names

    @ 10:45 PM (98 months, 15 days ago)
    WASHINGTON -- The Democrats are a bunch of sleazy, sniveling, sniffling scum.

    I was surprised to learn that the word "sleazy," meaning vulgar or disreputable, has no known Latin or Greek root, although I came across a reference to the "sleaze" factor in an old Newsweek, and a listing in an adult movie catalogue for an X-rated video titled "Sleazy Rider," but nothing else.

    Sniveling, or whining, comes directly from the Latin root, "to sniv," according to the latest edition of My First Dictionary (Golden Books).

    Sniffling really shouldn't be in there, but since it is, I believe it comes from the ancient Celtic word for "rear projection theater."

    I looked up scum, too, in case you were wondering. It goes way back.

    But enough about the Democrats. When I was writing witty put-downs of the left-stooping liberal media for Spiro Agnew back in the late 60's and early 70's (Remember "nattering nabobs of negativity?" That was mine!), I was convinced the red snide (get it?) would be turned back and a new era of enlightened government stewardship by well-meaning, if somewhat flawed, rich white men would stay the course of this country.

    And then those bungling idiots made a little too much noise at Larry O'Brien's and it took eight years, and a well-timed hostage crisis, to right the ship of state. My goodness, Moe, Larry, and Curly could have done better, but enough about that.

    Today, in my job at The New York Times as the lone right-wing apologist for Nixon, Reagan, Bush, and now Gingrich, I must comment on the current littered landscape of politics. And what do I see? I see a philandering phony on Fen-Phen sitting in the same chair once occupied by Grant, Taft, and Roosevelt (Teddy). Besides spilling a lot of hot mozzarella cheese on the seat cushions, this pizza-packing prexy, who speaks hoarsely but carries a Big Mac, is leading us down the yellow-brick road to moral turpitude.

    Now, I'll not pour turpentine on his turpitude, but let's look at a few indisputable facts: First, Clinton drank (not drunk) more coffee during the 1996 campaign than was exported to the United States from Brazil during any 12-month period in the last twenty years. I checked with an International Coffee Importers Industry spokeswoman (I hate the term "spokesperson," it's so vague), and she confirmed my hunch that, in order to raise one hundred million dollars at White House "coffees," Clinton would have had to have drunk (that's right, not drank) three hundred thousand kilos of coffee beans, more coffee than exists in all the world.

    Secondly, as if that weren't (not wasn't) enough, his wife is strident and pushy, and has a lot of nerve. And, she's a congenital (I mean congenial) liar, and don't believe her if she says she isn't.

    Finally, those snide, snickering spinmeisters who shovel the shaving cream at the White House should remember this: the pusillanimous pundits of today are the pot-bellied prognosticators of tomorrow!

    Mohammed Taheri-azar Tries to Kill Students at the University of North Carolina in Pro muslim Delusional Car Stunt

    @ 11:48 PM (98 months, 16 days ago)

    Why hasn't this joker been shot already?

    IT WASN'T A CAR BOMB, but the University of North Carolina must now come to terms with its first potential case of vehicular terrorism after an Iranian born, recent UNC graduate confessed to authorities his motive for driving a rented Jeep Grand Cherokee across the UNC campus into nine students was to "avenge the deaths of Muslims around the world."

    "The Pit" is a popular area on the UNC campus and on Friday, March 3rd, made a ripe target for 22-year-old Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar, who simply said "Yes," when asked by reporters if he was trying to kill people. No one was seriously injured in the attack even though Taheri-azar admits to renting the heaviest model available to inflict the largest amount of damage.

    Taheri-azar is already facing nine counts of "attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill." If convicted, he could face more than 100 years in prison and is currently being held on $5.5 million bail. No one appears to question the validity of his surrender and subsequent confession, which included his intent to "punish the government of the United States for their actions around the world." Nonetheless, there is a heated debate as to whether or not his actions amount to terror.

    Bombing Iran Sounds Like Fun

    @ 11:33 PM (98 months, 16 days ago)

    Compliments of the Atlantic Monthly:

    T his January, Iran announced that it would resume uranium-enrichment research, breaking an agreement set more than two years ago with several European powers. After a series of breakdowns in negotiations—and increasingly bellicose rhetoric from the new president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad—the move was widely perceived as an indication that Iran has decided to pursue nuclear weapons, whatever the consequences. U.S. and Israeli officials have publicly refused to rule out a military solution. When might such an attack— by the United States or Israel—take place? Here are the odds set by tradesports.com earlier this year, just after Iran resumed enrichment research, along with some factors the site’s bettors may (or may not) be considering.

    While the INS HELPS Illegal Aliens...the US Attorney Office Cracks Down

    @ 11:12 PM (98 months, 16 days ago)

    It's good to see at least one federal agency is doing something about the illegal alien situation.  The bad news is that more Americans will be working at dry cleaners.

     

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A woman who helped finance immigrant smuggling schemes including the "Golden Venture" freighter was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Thursday for running a multimillion-dollar ring using violent Chinese street gangs.

    Cheng Chui Ping, 57, ran an enterprise that crammed immigrants into planes, cars and trucks with fake floors and ships with dungeon-like conditions where one bathroom served hundreds of people, trial evidence showed.

    The rickety "Golden Venture" she helped finance ran aground off New York in 1993, killing 10 people who drowned. Gang members employed by Cheng testified they held immigrants hostage until family members paid smuggling debts as high as

    $50,000.

    Cheng, a native of China who prosecutors dubbed "The Mother of All Snakeheads" after the slang term for alien smuggler, spoke for an hour in her defense at Thursday's hearing.

    She maintained her innocence, and said she was merely a small business owner in Chinatown who was subjected to threats from gangs and lent money to newly arrived immigrants.

    "I did not have the ability to arrange for them to be smuggled. When they were short of money, I lent it to them. ... I simply don't have the courage to challenge the FBI. The FBI should be helping me. I was taken advantage of a lot in Chinatown," she said.

    Why Fool Around with Marriage Counseling When the Mexicans Have an Alternative

    @ 12:39 AM (98 months, 17 days ago)

    This could be a daily occurence in the homes of many of my liberal friends.

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A Mexican couple were recovering separately after a marital spat got out of control and saw them firing guns, throwing knives and hurling homemade bombs, Mexican daily Milenio said on Monday.

    In scenes taken straight out of hit romantic comedy "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Juan Espinosa and Irma Contreras fought until their house blew up in a homemade gasoline bomb explosion, Milenio said.

    Police called to the home in the indigenous Mayan Indian town of Oxkutzcab in the southeastern state of Yucatan arrested Espinosa. Contreras was taken to hospital with third-degree burns.

    A local police official confirmed the report but declined to provide further information.

    In the violence-filled movie about the fictional Smiths, Pitt and Jolie play married assassins ordered to kill each other.

    Espinosa told reporters he was glad his wife had suffered burns, while Contreras said she was only sorry she had not "hacked off his manhood" during the fight.

    Liberal Controlled INS Encourages Illegal Aliens - Congressman Tom Tancredo Has a Better Plan

    @ 12:24 AM (98 months, 17 days ago)

    "We have a supply and a demand problem. The supply problem is coming across the border. We are in this bill doing something very specific about that with the inclusion of the amendment, with the passage of the amendment, to build some barrier along at least 700 miles of our southern border. I hope we continue with that, by the way, along the entire border, to the extent it is feasible, and the northern border we could start next."

    --Rep. Tom Tancredo (R., Colo.)     

    So there you have it. Tom Tancredo has done everyone a favor by stating plainly the immigration rejectionists' endgame--turn the United States into the world's largest gated community. The House took a step in that direction this month by passing another immigration "reform" bill heavy with border control and business harassment and light on anything that will work in the real world.

    For the past two decades, border enforcement has been the main focus of immigration policy; by any measure, the results are pitiful. According to the Migration Policy Institute, "The number of unauthorized migrants in the United States has risen to almost 11 million from about four million over the past 20 years, despite a 519% increase in funding and a 221% increase in staffing for border patrol programs."

    Given that record, it's hard to see the House Republican bill as much more than preening about illegal immigration. The legislation is aimed at placating a small but vocal constituency that wants the borders somehow sealed, come what may to the economy, American traditions of liberty or the Republican Party's relationship with the increasingly important Latino vote.

    Besides mandating the construction of walls and fences along the 2,000-mile Mexican border, the bill radically expands the definition of terms like "alien smuggler," "harboring," "shielding" and "transporting." Hence all manner of people would become criminally liable and subject to fines, property forfeiture and imprisonment--the landscaper who gives a co-worker a ride to a job; the legal resident who takes in an undocumented relative; a Catholic Charities shelter providing beds and meals to anyone who walks through the door.

    Ports are the Tip of the Iceberg - Put a Real Illegal Alien Policy in Place - Check Out Congressman Tom Tancredo

    @ 12:19 AM (98 months, 17 days ago)

     

    Image of the Congressman

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Responding to an increased push by some foreign governments for illegal alien amnesty, Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) called on governments to stop their lobbying campaigns and American politicians to resist foreigners determining ’s immigration policy. Research compiled by Tancredo’s office shows that several governments have hired Washington lobbyists to push for illegal alien amnesty, while at least one foreign government’s parliament has appropriated money for a lobby whose stated purpose is to pass the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill.  

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) issued the following statement on today’s illegal alien rally in Washington, D.C. which was organized by labor unions:

    “The SEIU bussed in thousands of illegal aliens to rally against getting tough on our borders and illegal employers. Mass illegal labor drives down the wages of legal workers. But instead of defending American workers, the SEIU sees illegal labor as its salvation. The rally goes to show how much labor unions have sold out the American worker.

    “There’s some irony to thousands of illegal aliens protesting in front of the chamber that creates law in the first place. If anything, the protestors should remind Congress of how poorly our laws are being enforced, and how much we should step up enforcement.”

     

     

     

    Poker on St. Patrick's Day

    @ 12:01 AM (98 months, 17 days ago)
    Six retired Irishmen were playing poker in O'Leary's apartment when Paddy Murphy loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen brother, the other five continue playing standing up.

    Michael O'Conner looks around and asks, "Oh, me boys, someone got's to tell Paddy's wife. Who will it be?"

    They draw straws. Paul Gallagher picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse.

    "Discreet??? I'm the most discreet Irishmen you'll ever meet. Discretion is me middle name. Leave it to me."

    Gallagher goes over to Murphy's house and knocks on the door. Mrs. Murphy answers and asks what he wants. Gallagher declares: "Your husband just lost $500 and is afraid to come home."

    "Tell him to drop dead!", says Murphy's wife.

    "I'll go tell him." says Gallagher

    Avoiding Jury Duty - Potential Identity Theft - Scam Alert

    @ 11:59 PM (98 months, 17 days ago)

    In case some of my liberal friends are not aware of this activity, I thought bringing it to their attention might avoid trouble.  My civic minded conservative friends obviously would not face this issue

    Most of us take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced.  Fall for it and your identity could be stolen, reports CBS News.

    In this con, someone calls pretending to be a court official who threateningly says a warrant has been issued for your arrest because you didn't show up for jury duty.  The caller claims to be a jury coordinator.   If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Sometimes they even ask for credit card numbers. Give out any of this information and bingo!  Your identity just got stolen.  The scam has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma, Illinois, and Colorado. This (scam) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try and bully people into giving information by pretending they're with the court system.


    The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their websites, warning consumers about the fraud.  This story has been fact checked with snopes.

The Prophet of Islam said: 'I was ordered to fight the people until they believe in Allah and His Messenger.' When the Muslims divided the people into Muslims and non-Muslims, and called to fight the others until they believe in what they themselves believe, they started this clash, and began this war. In order to start this war, they must reexamine their Islamic books and curricula, which are full of calls for takfir and fighting the infidels.

    A Rep in the Hat
    Rep.

    I guess the next thing to come along will be Al Gore attempting to pose as the Cat in the Hat.

    Former Atlanta Mayor Bill Williams was convicted Friday of tax evasion.  Believe it or not, an exhaustive review of on line articles fails to mention that Bill, the convict, is a DEMOCRAT.

    Animal Rights Activists and PETA Warn Moose Population Threatened by Swingsets

    One can only imagine the furor when PETA digs in teeth into this story.  Those spindoctors will seize on anything.

    img68/1200/moose4yn.jpg

    MILAN, N.H. - It was a tempting green hedgerow for the hungry young moose. Somehow, a child's swingset got in the way. The moose, who was trying to snack on a backyard hedge Thursday, got tangled in the swingset's chains. The homeowner called police for help.

    Lt. Jean LeBlanc decided he needed backup, so he called Don Valliere, maintenance man for the Berlin Police, and asked him to bring a pair of bolt cutters.

    It was up to Valliere, 54, to free the moose. Photos snapped by LeBlanc show Valliere balanced on a beam of the swingset, snipping the chains — just a couple of feet from the 400-pound adolescent moose.

    "It didn't like the idea too much that I stayed close to it, but it stayed calm," Valliere said Friday. "The only thing I was nervous about was getting bit."

    The rescue went smoothly and the moose was freed. It left without looking back.

    "It just real slow, just walked away," Valliere said.

    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Already well underway, the post-Bush Era enters the political equivalent of spring training season this weekend as Republican presidential contenders trek to Memphis to try out their rhetoric on a gathering of 1,800 activists from 37 states.

    Arizona Sen. John McCain, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Virginia Sen. George Allen, Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback, and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will address the GOP’s Southern Regional Leadership Conference in Memphis.

    And there’ll be a key missing man at Memphis: former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who according to a CNN/USA Today/ Gallup poll last month, is a favorite of Republicans, getting 33 percent with McCain right behind him at 28 percent and other GOP contenders trailing in single digits.  Donald Trump will not be there as well citing important Apprentice taping commitments.  While presently Trump is in the 1% range in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll, Trump claims he will only start campaigning in November 2007.  "It just doesn't make sense to waste time now while I can be expanding the the Trump brand now and expanding my personal wealth."

     

    CIA Plot to Eliminate Milosevic Hugely Successful

    Long a target of the CIA, the war criminal has finally been killed.  The beauty of the operation is that the true cause of death was totally undetected.  See story below:

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslav leader, who was branded “the butcher of the Balkans” and was on trial for war crimes after orchestrating a decade of bloodshed during the breakup of his country, was found dead Saturday in his prison cell. He was 64.

    Milosevic, who suffered chronic heart ailments and high blood pressure, apparently died of natural causes and was found in his bed, the U.N. tribunal said, without giving an exact time of death.

    He had been examined by doctors following his frequent complaints of fatigue or ill health that delayed his trial, but the tribunal could not immediately say when he last underwent a medical checkup. All detainees at the center in Scheveningen are checked by a guard every half hour.AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Slobodan Milosevic, the former Yugoslav leader, who was branded “the butcher of the Balkans” and was on trial for war crimes after orchestrating a decade of bloodshed during the breakup of his country, was found dead Saturday in his prison cell.

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico is deploying an army of inflatable sex dolls dressed as office executives in a head-turning publicity campaign against workplace harassment of women in the famously macho country.

    Timed to coincide with International Women's Day on Wednesday, the advertisements show sex dolls with staring eyes and gaping red mouths dressed in suits and sitting at computers.

    Michael Jackson...Neverland....Nevermore

    @ 12:29 AM (98 months, 23 days ago)

    Apparently MJ is having difficulty running his once pride and joy from Dubai.

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Michael Jackson was ordered to shut down his Neverland Valley Ranch on Thursday by California authorities who have fined the pop star $169,000 for failing to pay his employees or maintain proper insurance.

    Jackson's sprawling ranch in the central California foothills was closed, at least temporarily, by an agent of the State Labor Commissioner after the office discovered that his worker's compensation policy had lapsed in January.

    "We went out there this morning and issued a stop order to the security guard at the front gate," state Department of Industrial Relations spokesman Dean Fryer told Reuters. "We asked to be escorted in to meet management, but we were refused and turned away, so we gave the order to (the guard)."

    Clint Eastwood On Target as Usual...Takes Aim on Obese Bozo michael moore

    @ 11:28 PM (98 months, 24 days ago)

    "Dirty Harry" actor Clint Eastwood says if Michael Moore ever shows up at his door with a camera, he will kill the controversial movie director.

    Eastwood stunned a New York filmmaking audience with his comments, the New York Daily News' Lloyd Grove reported today in his must-read column.

    "Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common - we both appreciate living in a country where there's free expression," Eastwood was quoted as telling the National Board of Review awards dinner in New York Tuesday night.

    With a cold glare Eastwood took notice of Moore sitting in the audience and said bluntly and without a smile: "But, Michael, if you ever show up at my front door with a camera - I'll kill you."

    The Daily News reports the audience erupted in laughter, and Eastwood grinned. "I mean it," Eastwood said again.

    So - Called Abortion "Rights" Left Wingers Propaganda War Is Not Working

    @ 11:13 PM (98 months, 24 days ago)

    The reality is that the majority of Americans have realized that THEY have "rights" too and no longer need to be bullied by a minority of left wing baby killers.  The hard data and FACTS are starting to come to light.  The new composition of the US Supreme Court is beginning to reflect the core values of the majority of Americans.

    By LINDA A. JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer 43 minutes ago

    Abortion rates declined significantly among Texas girls — though some got riskier abortions later in pregnancy — after the state enacted a parental notification law, researchers say.

    The findings could have a strong influence on the abortion debate. Texas is the biggest of 35 states that require minors to notify their parents or get their consent before obtaining an abortion, although a judge can usually grant a waiver.

    Researchers at Baruch College at City University of New York studied the records of teen abortions and births for the two years before the Texas law took effect on Jan. 1, 2000, and for three years afterward.

    Abortion rates dropped for girls ages 15 through 18, even though the 18-year-olds were not subject to the law. But the drop was more pronounced among the younger girls. Their rates fell 11 percent to 20 percent more than the rate among the 18-year-olds did.

    "The law has definite behavioral effects," said lead researcher Ted Joyce, a Baruch professor of economics.

    The study was reported in Thursday's

    New England Journal of Medicine.

    In the study, birth rates declined for all ages in the 15- to 18-year-old group. At the same time, the abortion rate among 18-year-olds fell from 27.7 abortions per 1,000 girls before the law to 25.8 afterward. The rate dropped from 18.7 to 14.5 among 17-year-olds; 12.1 to 9.0 among 16-year-olds; and 6.5 to 5.4 among 15-year-olds.

    Texas state Sen. Florence Shapiro, who sponsored the notification law, said the findings show that more parents are becoming involved in their daughters' "life-altering decisions."

    "That was my intent," she said. Last year, Texas went further and enacted a law requiring parental consent.

    In the study, girls 17 1/2 or slightly older were one-third more likely to have an abortion in the second trimester than girls already 18 when they became pregnant, indicating many waited until they turned 18 to escape the notification requirement.

    Abortion later in pregnancy carries a much higher rate of deadly complications, though the overall risk is still extremely small.

    The study "draws attention to the way that these kinds of laws can put teens in a compromised position that puts their health at risk," said Lawrence Finer, director of domestic research at the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit research group that specializes in reproductive issues.

    The abortion rate has been falling among all girls since 1991 both nationally and in Texas, as have teen birth rates, for reasons that are believed to include greater use of birth control, more effective methods and a delay in first-time intercourse.

    As usual, the Donald is thinking ahead of the curve.  Getting in while the market is low, Trump has leveraged his other holdings to come up with the financing to purchase Palestine and Iran.  He plans to put the winner of each Apprentice series in charge of developing one golf course after another until the entire area is one giant Myrtle Beach.

    "This kills two birds with one stone.  There will be nothing for the towel heads to fight overPebble Beach

    and I will make a ton of money and spread the Trump name to yet another part of the world,

    everybody wins."  Hotel chains are already putting in bids for choice tracts of land nearby the

    areas designated for courses.  "This will be first class like all my projects.  Dubai will look like a trailer

    park by comparison.  My ports are NOT for sale, they will be run by the newly formed Trump Port

    Management Group which will be overseen by the past Apprentice winners."

    The Bush Administration announced its full support.  "This will allow us to eliminate Iran from

    the Axis of Evil and replace it with France."

    Why Bother to Require Listing as a Sexual Predator

    @ 11:45 PM (98 months, 25 days ago)

    One of the hardest (no pun intended) things to believe about this case is that it involved people of the OPPOSITE sex is San Francisco.

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A 22-year-old Californian man who received oral sex from a sixteen-year-old girl should not be forced to register for life as a sex offender, the California Supreme Court ruled on Monday.

    The state's top court found that California denied Vincent Hofsheier equal protection under the law because those having intercourse in such circumstances would not be forced to register as lifetime sex offenders.

    Hofsheier appealed after being ordered to register his name on the list, which is shared with the public and carries significant stigma.

    "Requiring mandatory lifetime registration of all persons who, like defendant here, were convicted of voluntary oral copulation with a minor of the age of 16 or 17, but not of someone convicted of voluntary sexual intercourse with a minor of the same age, violates the equal protection clauses of the federal and state Constitutions," the court ruled.

    "We perceive no reason why the legislature would conclude that persons who are convicted of voluntary oral copulation with adolescents 16 to 17 years old...constitute a class of 'particularly incorrigible offenders'... who require lifetime surveillance as sex offenders."

    U.S. law on oral sex has evolved over the years, and it was not until 1975 that oral sex between consenting adults was decriminalized in California. Today, in 38 of the 50 U.S. states consensual sex with a 16- or 17-year old is legal.

    In the case, Hofsheier pleaded guilty and received probation after meeting the teenager in an Internet chat room and sharing rum and orange juice with her at a beach.

    The California Supreme Court's decision returns the case to a lower court to decide whether he should still be subject to registration under that court's discretionary authority.

    Goldwater Announces New US Foreign Policy Eliminating Pandering and Putting American Interests First

    @ 11:01 PM (98 months, 25 days ago)

    The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses."  She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?'


    1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those "good ole boys", we will never "interfere" again.

    2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with
    Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines.  They don't want us there.  We would station troops at our borders.  No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

    3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave.  We'll give them a free trip home.  After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are.  They're illegal!!!  
    France will welcome them.

    4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!!   No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in.  If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here.  Asylum would never be available
    to anyone.  We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

    5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

    6) The
    US will make a strong effort
    to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

    7) Offer
    Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

    8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need.  Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given
    to the army.  The people who need
    it most get very little, if anything.

    9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace.  We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here.  Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

    10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school.  That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer.  The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE...Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

    Isabelle Dinoire Update - Pigging Out, Smoking Like a Chimney, Slathering on the Makeup

    @ 10:28 PM (98 months, 27 days ago)

    “Since the day of my operation, I have a face like everyone else,” Dinoire said. “A door to the future is opening. I can open my mouth and eat. I feel my lips, my nose and my mouth,” Dinoire said.  In terms of coloring, the match between Dinoire’s own skin and the graft seemed remarkable, though she also appeared to be wearing enough foundation makeup and blusher to paint a small yacht. 

    When she laughed, she was able to slightly lift a corner of her mouth, but appeared unable to bring her lips together to form a full smile. Her lips remained immobile as she talked, like a ventriloquist’s. 

    "Psychologically, she has totally accepted her new face. Her return to smoking is not the best thing. She smokes fag after fag. But if that's what she wants to do, we can't stop her." Last month, there was a slight scare when her body appeared to reject the tissue, but that has now been overcome, he added.

    She added that she has been eating as much as she can since she wants to gain weight. "I love fresh strawberries, but have also eaten omelettes, chocolate cake and all kinds of other foods," she said.

    Liberal Californians Overwhelmingly Endorse Death Penalty

    @ 07:14 PM (98 months, 28 days ago)

    It appears that the blue states are wising up on their way to be into being pushed into the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.  For some reason the New York Times failed to publish this story:

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Californians overwhelmingly back the death penalty, according to a poll released on Friday, the latest indication most Americans continue to back a punishment rare in the rest of the world.

    California has often foreshadowed changes in American public policy, but the most populous state appears to share the opinion of the rest of the country on the issue, even though it rarely metes out the punishment.

    A Field Poll of 500 Californian adults found 63 percent favored the death penalty with 32 percent opposed. Among registered voters, the number rose to 67 percent, 1 percent lower than in a 2004 poll. The poll, carried out Feb 12-26, had 4.5 percent margin of error.

    "In the overall view there has not been much change in the last 45 years," said Mervin Field, who has polled Californians on the issue for half a century.

    An October Gallup Poll found 64 percent of Americans in favor of the death penalty.

    The latest survey follows the December execution or Crips gang leader Stanley Tookie Williams, as well the 1,000th execution nationwide that month since America resumed capital punishment in 1977.

    There Will Be a Presidential Election In 2008

    @ 12:10 AM (98 months, 29 days ago)

    Every four years the American public has an opportunity to participate in a referendum to determine to direction of the country for the next four years.  As of today, there is not an announced candidate who has expressed a cogent idea about Iraq, abortion, Hamas, the budget or any other issue which concerns the American public.  As of today, what is being expressed is what is commonly referred to as "monday morning quarterbacking."  There are many after the fact complaints, second guesses and whining.  The reality is that unless one has a crystal ball, one has no way of knowing what the future will bring.  Every event that unfolds affects the future.  Would one be able to say with any certainly what the state of the country would be if:

    1.  There had been no Roe vs. Wade decision; or

    2.  No bombs had been dropped on Japan; or

    3.  Al Gore was not in semidelusional retirement; or

    4.  Saddam still ran Iraq; or

    5.  John Heinz was still alive; or

    6.  John McCain had never been a POW?

    7.  JFK had not gotten the US involved in a Southeast Asia morass?

    8.  JFK had not gotten killed by who knows who;  or

    9.  Richard Nixon never made tapes.

    Even though all those things have happened, no one knows what the state of the country will be twenty years from now.  How many times have you listened to an 11 pm scientific weather forecast for events that are only 7 hours away only to find when you look out your window the next morning, the weather is not what was predicted?

    Currently the administration is Washington DC is being overscrutinized for the sole purpose of finding something to criticize.  Why?  The answer is that NO ONE has any different let alone better ideas.  The cacaphony of criticism is designed to distract the American public know that.

    The New York Times, of all places, Reports that EVIDENCE Shows President Bush Was on the Katrina Levee Situation from the Very Beginning

    @ 11:12 PM (99 months, 17 hours ago)
    Published: March 2, 2006

    WASHINGTON, March 1

    In the videoconference held at noon on Monday, Aug. 29, Michael D. Brown, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, reported that he had spoken with President Bush twice in the morning and that the president was asking about reports that the levees had been breached.

    But asked about the levees by Joe Hagin, the White House deputy chief of staff, Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco of Louisiana said, "We have not breached the levee at this point in time." She said "that could change" and noted that the floodwaters in some areas in and around New Orleans were 8 to 10 feet deep. Later that night, FEMA notified the White House that the levees had been breached.

    Shouldn't it be "The Parents' Right to Choose" instead of "A Woman's Right to Choose"?

    @ 10:55 PM (99 months, 17 hours ago)
    As a man and a father, the terminology surrounding abortion has always confused me.  It takes a man and a woman to make a baby.  Why should a woman even a wife have the right to unilaterally decide to abort without the father/husband's consent?  Suppose my wife and I decided to have a baby.  We both wanted it.  Somewhere along the way she changed her mind.  Shouldn't I as the father have the right to insist on the baby being born and if the mother abandon's the baby to get child support from her?  Conversely, the father must may child suppot he if he wanted the baby aborted.  Doesn't sound fair to me.  Among many other reasons, this is one of the reasons Roe vs. Wade must go.  Babies are decisions for families, not for legislators or courts.  The present extremely sexist and anti father policy must be equalized.

    This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It
    Is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview
    Between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps
    General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout
    Troop visiting his military installation.


    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald,
    What things are you going to teach these young boys
    When they visit your base?

    GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing,
    Canoeing, archery, and shooting.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit
    Irresponsible, isn't it?

    GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be
    Properly supervised on the rifle range.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a
    Terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

    GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be
    Teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even
    Touch a firearm.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to
    Become violent killers.

    GENERAL REINWALD: Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to
    Be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

    The radio went silent and the interview ended.

    A Sign at a Business Establishment Philadelphia, PA:

    This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in Philadelphia. Most would be outraged at the thought of such an inflammatory statement. One would think that anti-hate groups from all across the country would be marching on this business, and that the National Guard might have to be called to keep the angry crowds back.
    But, perhaps in these stressful times, one might be tempted to let the proprietors simply make their statement. We are a society who holds "Freedom of Speech" as perhaps our greatest liberty. And after all, it is just a sign. You may ask what business would dare post such a sign?

    Who Says the Supreme Court is Obsessed with Abortion?

    @ 12:02 AM (99 months, 2 days ago)

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former Playmate of the Year Anna Nicole Smith got her U.S. Supreme Court hearing on Tuesday, when her lawyer argued she should collect millions of dollars she claims her late Texas oil tycoon husband had promised her.

    At one point during the hour-long arguments, the 38-year old blond widow, dressed in black and sitting in the spectator section, became emotional and started crying, a witness and her lawyer said.

    Smith, who formerly also has hosted her own reality television show, did not talk to the crush of reporters, photographers and camera crews when she entered and left the Supreme Court building.
