Someone does well

It appears that quite a few people are scared shitless of the thought of an Obama Presidency. So much so that they are stocking up on guns

Keith Olberman

I have my problems with George Bush, but I still respect him as President. He IS still the Commander In Chief, and deserves that much respect.

But Keith Olberman, with his air of smugness, his pseudo-intellectual glasses gives us this tidbit of liberal rage.

I can't stand that sort of vile hatred. Not only do the majority of his opinions repulse me, but the manner of his delivery. He thinks he's better than you, and you should adopt his opinions.

Do as I say

Robert Byrd, the longtime Senator from West Virginia and past KKK member recently got out of a traffic ticket for ramming into the back of a van.

In early May, Senator Robert C. Byrd, a longtime and powerful Democrat from West Virginia, was following a van too closely on U.S. Route 50 in Fairfax, Virginia, when the van stopped for traffic.

Byrd's 1999 Cadillac slammed into the rear of the van. It took a tow truck more than an hour to pry the vehicles apart.

Byrd's car was not drivable and suffered an estimated $7,000 in damage. The driver of the 1990 Ford Econoline van, Chris Lee, 42, a house painter from Fairfax, said he didn't hear any sounds indicating that Byrd hit the brakes or swerved.

"Just boom," Lee said.

The Fairfax County police officer who investigated the accident had started to write the 81-year-old Senator a traffic ticket when Bryd pulled a copy of the U.S. Constitution out of his pocket and pointed to a section that he said the cop prevented the cop for ticketing him for anything because he, as a member of Congress "shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest" both while attending a session and traveling to or from the Capitol.

On one hand I think it's cool that he knows the Constitution so well, and I guess he's entitled to use it. But it just shows that members of Congress are a privledged class of people. Above you and me.

What makes me really mad is that while they skirt the law using their authority and power to do so, they pass ever more intrusive nanny laws upon us!

Hazleton immigration law sruck down

A federal udge threw out Hazleton's law against illegal immigrants. Let me emphasize one words there. Illegal.

federal judge has struck down the Illegal Immigration Relief Act, ruling Hazleton's proposed crackdown on landlords and employers doing business with illegal immigrants is unconstitutional.

In a 206-page opinion, U.S. District Judge James M. Munley stated, "Federal law prohibits Hazleton from enforcing any of the provisions of its ordinance" aimed at expelling illegal immigrants.

"Whatever frustrations ... the city of Hazleton may feel about the current state of federal immigration enforcement, the nature of the political system in the United States prohibits the city from enacting ordinances that disrupt a carefully drawn federal statutory scheme," Munley wrote.

The people targeted by Hazleton's law were illegal immigrants. Not you or I, or immigrants here legally. These people were here in direct violation of our immigration laws. Unfortunately, it was thrown out by an activist judge.

I'm sure that the ACLU and countless lawbreakers in Hazleton are happy.

Based on what the judge said, I want to know what would happen if there was a similar law against child predators, rapists, and murderers? What would happen if we had a federal government that refused to enforce laws against rape, child molestaion, and murder?

Under Munley's belief that "United States law prohibits the city from enacting ordinances that disrupt a carefully drawn federal statutory scheme.." then even if that federal government refused to enforce those laws then states would be powerless to do anything about it.


Furthermore I believe that any federal laws enacted on immigration themselves are Unconstitutional on the 10th and 14th amendments.

The 14th Amendment, Section 1

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Emphasis mine

The 10th Amendment

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved for the States respectively, or to the people.

Another thing to consider is that nowhere in the constitution does it say anything about immigration.

The US government has been tinkering with immigration law for decades now. Surveying the wreckage – heartbroken families, an underclass of exploited workers, and ruined lives – makes it clear why the Founding Fathers refused to trust the national government with power over immigrants.

That's right: The Constitution does not authorize the federal government to control immigration. Nor does it say anything about illegal aliens. We looked for a clause with directions for ranking immigrants on a points system – another feature of the Senate's reform bill – but we couldn't find one.

All in all this ruling stunk. It is awful. It sets the groundwork and lays a foundation for eliminating even the sacred federal statutes Judge Munley mentioned in his opinion.

Are there parts of the law that should be changed or are too rough? Probably. I'm not especially happy with the elimination of due process for business owners.

Since the federal government seems content on not doing a damned thing about immigration or border security, should we sit on our laurels and do nothing? No!

Should supposed civil liberty groups be allowed to stand up for the "rights" of lawbreakers? No!

It's about time we stood up for the Rule of Law and for the principles of Federalism.

Global Warming "Deniers"

Ellen Goodman, in a recent column, compared those of us who are skeptical of the claims of global warming on par with "holocost deniers".

I would like to say we're at a point where global warming is impossible to deny. Let's just say that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust deniers, though one denies the past and the other denies the present and future.

This is a typical tactic being used by the global warming supporters. Their agendas are more on par with Karl Marx than with that of a true scientists. They are anti-corporate, anti-American types who would love to see our current dominant role as a leader in the world diminish. Instead of touting the plight of the working man, they instead use environmental rhetoric.

I say shame on this lady to compare skeptics of global warming to holocaust deniers. True science is about being skeptical. It shows them for who they truly are. Blind supporters of a movement rooted more in anti-americanism and anti-corporate policies in true environmentalism.

And some science is showing that it is the Sun causing 'global warming'.

New York Times insults my hometown.

The New York Times, which is to responsible journalism as chewing bubble gum is to preventing pregnancys, has bad mouthed a small rural town in Pennsylvania. What makes it more interesting is that it is where I live.

Read the Article

Although Tamaqua is only an hour northwest of Allentown, it might as well be in another country in another time. On the first day of school, as I drive up Route 309 over Blue Mountain, the car engine strains to make the steep grade, then my cellphone cuts out. On the edge of town, I see a worn sign that says "Coal for Sale" that must be 30 years old. Abandoned strip mines surround and define both the town and the people, who look flinty, dust-covered, squinteyed.

I guess to her we look like that banjo playing kid in Deliverance.

Here is some un-biased info on Tamaqua.

I say shoot illegal immigrants, but then again I'm an evil conservative

I don't know why many in America think it's okay to break some laws, but not others. Take immigration for an example. I'm for immigration. Legal immigration. My family emigrated to America from Germany and Lithuania. They did it legally. But nowadays the cool way for many to get to America is to cross illegally. And some people don't appreciate that we are cracking down on this crime.

In Phoenix, police said 10,000 demonstrators marched to the office of Republican Sen. Jon Kyl, co-sponsor of a bill that would give illegal immigrants up to five years to leave the country. The turnout clogged a major thoroughfare.

"They're here for the American Dream," said Malissa Greer, 29, who joined a crowd estimated by police to be at least 10,000 strong. "God created all of us. He's not a God of the United States, he's a God of the world."

Kyl had no immediate comment on the rally.

At least 500 students at Huntington Park High School near Los Angeles walked out of classes in the morning. Hundreds of the students, some carrying Mexican flags, walked down the middle of Los Angeles streets, police cruisers behind them.

I'm going to start a demonstration to protest DUI laws. These people are only trying to have fun. It says in the constitution that we have the right to pursue happiness. If drinking makes me happy, why should they crack down on me driving home.

How about we protest going after child molestors. They are just trying to be happy with their little boys and girls.

Plain and simple, the people who cross our borders are doing so illegally. If they want to come to this country they should do it legally. We should make it easier to come to this country. Right now they break the law because the legal way is so convoluted and filled with red tape. If we made legal immigration easier, people would not be crossing in this way. Though that doesn't excuse this blatent disregard for our national soverignty.

Liberals really do hate this country

Liberals really do hate America. If you don't know what I mean, then read this blog entry and subsequent comments.

Basicially the writer of the blog and the posters to the entry imply that Cheney was intoxicated during the shooting, and should be arrested for negligence.

When one poster pointed out the dems and their connections to Ted Kennedy, and the fact that he WAS drunk and he KILLED a woman, this story is a non-issue, the liberals attacked him with anger saying "2 Days.
That's how long it took for the Republicans to turn this into a Kennedy/Clinton/Carter issue."

It's like if someone calls you a name, and then three days later you call them out, and they complain that you are picking on them.

These liberals are on the wrong side of history. History will show them as hateful, arrogant, and spiteful punks. Just like the detractors of Ronald Reagan were shown by history to be ignorant, this bunch of American haters will be shown to be nothing more than sympathizers with terrorists.

Hunting is dangerous, and things happen. I know several people who were injured in accidents, one guy had his fingers blown off by buck shot. I've even scratched my cornea on a shell that was ejected from a gun.

One time when I was trap shooting, it was my turn to shoot, and a fellow shooter thought I was done and walked in my line of sight, if I was tracking a clay at the time, I might of shot him. I have seen nothing to believe that this was anything more than an accident.

And as far as waiting 24 hours, I think Mr. Cheney probably should have come out sooner, but I would think that at the moment of the accidnet he stopped thinking as the VP and started to think as a man who hurt his friend, wanting to make sure his friend was all-right and wishing to err on the side of privacy.

Wellstone moments

Watching the funeral of Mrs. King, I find it utterly repulsive that many of the liberal speakers will use it as a chance to attack President George W. Bush. From Jimmy Carter illuding to "illegal wiretaps" to some minister talking about "knowing there were no weapons of mass distruction". It is utterly repulsive. This group of Liberal Democrats are totally reprehensable, and disgusting human beings.

Jimmy Carter needs to be put in a home, where he can shuck peanuts and babble to himself.

Who cares what they think?

America isn't viewed as a positive influence in the world by many other countries.

Iran is the country most widely viewed as having a negative influence in the world, with the US in second place, a new poll for the BBC suggests. The survey for the BBC World Service asked how 39,435 people in 33 nations across the globe saw various countries.

Views of China, Russia and France have declined in comparison to a similar survey at the end of 2004.

Japan is most widely seen to have a positive influence. Europe has the most positive scores of all in the poll.

Who gives a fuck what Europe says. Who gives billions for AIDS in Africa, Tsunami releif and more. America. Not only from the hands of our Government, but also through Americans themselves giving of their hearts and pocketbooks.

My philosophy is, if they think we are so bad, fuck em. I hope another Tsunami whipes out parts of Europe, and I will give not one red cent to them. Let them get thier money from France.

A yeast infection

I had the opportunity while driving to my dart league game to listen to Adam Curry's podshow on Sirius Satellite radio. This particular episode featured Madge Weinstein's Yeast Radio. It was a rant by some particularly angry person against George Bush. Filled with childish name calling, it featured the hot off the presses Democratic Party Talking points.

From "4.9% unemployment isn't really good unless it's a Democrat in the office" to the lack of basic economics. This one is a good podcast to listen to if you want to hear an unhinged liberal.

What if their name was Redskin?

The Seattle Times will not use the word "Redskins" in their reporting of their game against the Redskins. Must call them "Washington". This can get very interesting as News Busters reports.

See if this makes sense.

Marcus Washington plays in a different Washington, but he still can sympathize with Seahawks who feel overlooked. This is because Washington finished with 93 tackles, 7 ½ sacks and one interception and, like the rest of the Washington defense, didn't make the Pro Bowl.... The biggest advantage Washington quarterback Mark Brunell sees from his days at the University of Washington? "That's one good thing about playing in Seattle all those years," he said, "you get used to throwing a wet ball."

And his e-mail addy is from the UK, could it be the LIMEY is back?

Well, duh, what do you think a blog is supposed to be? The New York fucking times? It's just for fun, sometimes we go overboard, and sometimes we joke. It's not like I said that all Liberals are commie pinkos who practice frequent risky sex and will probably die of AIDS while attending a conference on Kyoto. And if I did, is that any worse than when John Kerry called our troops "Terrorists" a few days ago, or no more than Howard Dean said we can never win the war in Iraq.

And no more that what is said on most "progressive" radio or other publications.

Happy Christmas

I hate when companies say "Happy Holidays". Bill O'Reilly has a list of how different companies view Christmas

JCPenney "Christmas" mentioned in print ads & other advertising Federated Department Stores (Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor, Filene's, Marshall Fields) "Christmas" mentioned in print ads & other advertising Employees are free to use any holiday greeting that they feel is appropriate

KB Toys

BJ's Wholesale Club
Using "holiday season" this year in advertising materials
Employees are free to use any holiday greeting that they feel is appropriate

Using "Happy Holidays" this year in advertising materials

Sears & Kmart
Kmart will not use "Christmas" in its advertising
Employees are free to use any holiday greeting that they feel is appropriate

Kohl's does not disclose its advertising strategies
Employees are free to use any holiday greeting that they feel is appropriate

Did not return phone calls

First off, Christmas is a federal holiday. Banks are closed, no mail is delivered, no federal employees work. It's a law. Just like July 4th, Martin Luther King Day, or President's Day. Unlike Easter, which is more highly religious, Christmas is federally recognized.

Also stores make most of their money during the Christmas season. To take our money and make profits off that, but then arrogantly deny the reason many people shop, for Christmas gifts that is, really gives me the red ass.

Also notice how Target didn't respons. I fucking hate Target. When my family's house burned down about 10 years ago, it was the Salvation Army that really got us help. They got us clothes, shoes, and toys for my little brothers and sisters. That Target doesn't allow the Army to solicit on their property is their right as property owners. Their choice, but I also choose not to shop there.

Hollywood Idiots

I mentioned many times in this blog that Hollywood sucks, and is dying. Revenues are down, and no one is going to see a movie. Take away the point that most movies out right now suck, and DVDs, but there is also another reason. The wackiness of those Hollywood types.

What a diva needs, a diva needs. Last year, amid legal action over the "Basic Instinct" sequel that fell apart - but later came back together again and went into production -- Sharon Stone's needs list for doing the movie came to light and was put on line by The Smoking Gun. The perks demanded were numerous enough to take up five pages, and included three nannies, two assistants, first class travel (if a private jet was unavailable), presidential suite, chef, deluxe motor home with all the amenities including VCR and cellular fax machine. She would need Pilates equipment, a chauffeured car plus a convertible sedan for herself. She would keep all wardrobe and jewelry worn in the flick that wasn't rented. And, of course, a $3,500 per week per diem for bodyguards.

Aren't these the same people who chastize us for driving cars and using too much oil? Why can they live like pigs, but insist we are bad for it?

Trolling for Votes

Katherine-Baker-Knoll, our troll-like Lt. Governor crashed a marine funeral and tried to get the anti-war votes.

She sat down next to a Goodrich family member and, during the distribution of communion, said, "Who are you?" Then she handed the family member one of her business cards, which Goodrich said she still has.

"Knoll felt this was an appropriate time to campaign and impose her will on us," Goodrich said. "I am amazed and disgusted Knoll finds a Marine funeral a prime place to campaign."

Goodrich said she is positive that Knoll was not invited to the funeral, which was jammed with Marines in dress uniform and police officers, because the fallen Marine had been a policeman in McKeesport and Indiana County.

"Our family deserves an apology," Rhonda Goodrich said. "Here you have a soldier who was killed -- dying for his country -- in a church full of grieving family members and she shows up uninvited. It made a mockery of Joey's death."

What really upset the family, Goodrich said, is that Knoll said, 'I want you to know our government is against this war,' " Goodrich said.

What a bitch.

Cop Killers and beaters

Michele Malkin has a link to a story about anarchists who beat up a cop in San Fransisco.

Are these the same people who were present at the death of a Philly cop

A MATTER of seconds, protest chants fell silent and cops' stone-faced glares faded.

Suddenly, it wasn't about power and activism or who was right or wrong outside the Pennsylvania Convention Center yesterday afternoon.

It was about one man, a cop of 19 years, who crumpled to the street and died apparently of a heart attack after a standoff between a blue line of cops and a corps of drum-banging idealists fighting the biotech industry came to a head.

Paris Williams, 52, who worked in the Civil Affairs Unit, lay motionless on asphalt as cops bent over him on Arch Street and performed CPR, trying desperately to save his life. Those protesting the biotech industry convention held at the center bunched together outside and moved towards the fallen cop.

They pushed forward, forming a human barricade. Some cops swung their bikes at demonstrators to move them away from the fallen officer, hitting some people.

Ian Cox, 16, of Moorestown, N.J., said he was standing taking pictures. "One cop turned and just punched me in the gut," he said.

"It's a shame," said Eileen Nathanson, 66, a protester forced back on the sidewalk on Arch Street near 12th. "They're all nice kids... I think it was a miscommunication."

Williams, a father of two, was rushed to nearby Hahnemann University Hospital, where doctors said his heart had already stopped.

Shortly after he was pronounced dead at 1:12 p.m., the mood on Arch Street turned solemn. The protesters walked to the Convention Center steps on Arch facing a line of cops gripping nightsticks.

Reports from some people at the scene report that the protestors kicked the police officer when he fell from his heart attack.

And these guys claim they are in the mainstream?

The bearded intelectuals

What is it with pointy headed liberals like Richard Cohen and Paul Krugman and their beards. Most of these guys have never done anything remotely "hick" like chopping down a tree or shot Bambi's dad in the middle of December to warrant having a beard.

Anyways, Richard Cohen does not seem to understand why we don't understand the nuance of comparing GI's to Nazis. To the other Dick, comparing GIs, who put their lives on the line for Liberty and often give their rations to starving children, is a valid way to criticize the Bush administration for not giving these "suspected terrorists" air-conditioning.

And according to the other Dick, when Trent Lott was trying to be nice to a 100 year old man on his birthday, he is an evil racist. That was much worse, and since that was bad, Dick Durbin's comments don't even warrent an apology.

Still, Durbin is not being faulted for a lack of nuance. He has instead come under vitriolic attack by Republicans who would have you think that the Democrat from Illinois likened America to the Soviet Union or the American military to Nazi Germany or disparaged the military in its entirety. In the name of our armed forces, Virginia Sen. John W. Warner asked for an apology. Newt Gingrich, the former Republican speaker of the House, called for Durbin to be censured by the Senate. That would be a more severe penalty than that accorded Sen. Trent Lott (R-Miss.) for praising the late Strom Thurmond's racist 1948 presidential campaign.

Well, I guess being nice to a man who already was slipping the bonds of Earth was worse than giving aid and comfort to the enemy. His comments have been continually fueling the anti-American fire, and no doubt many suicide bombers are using his words to justify their murder.

Well, according to Emperor Misha, he did make an apology, but a really crappy one.

I believe, that Dick Durbin is un-American. There it is, I've said it. To compare GIs to Nazis and to Pol Pot is >treason. He should resign from his leadership position, and if the people of his home state had any sense, he should not be re-elected.

Is that nuanced enough?

The Mayor's one way street

Mayor John Street, the corrupt and inept mayor of Philly thinks he is better than you. He wants to tell privately owned businesses that they can't allow smoking. He wants to raise your taxes, and he thinks the current Philly law that allows government to give preferred contracts to political donors should not be changed.

He also doesn't think that he, the almighty mayor of the 5th largest city in the nation, should not have his bag searched. He says it's an invasion of HIS privacy. (what about the rights of private property owners who want to allow smoking)

PHILADELPHIA -- A trip to the movies for Philadelphia Mayor John Street became quite a drama. It involved a movie theater employee who tried to inspect the mayor's little black bag.

"I was trying to keep it safe," said Joseph Hood, 35.
Hood has cerebral palsy. He also has a 13-year career at the AMC theater at the Franklin Mills Mall. His duties include security.

Last month, Hood asked to check a bag that Street was bringing into the theater. He did not recognize the mayor.
"(I said,) 'Excuse me sir, for security purposes may I check your bag?' He says, 'Sir, you may not,' and put up a big scene," Hood said.

A few days later, the mayor had his attorney call the theater and inquire about the policy. He said that the move was not meant to intimidate anyone.

Air America, the mostly privately funded liberal talk radio station really is upset that George Bush won the election, going to far as to say things that most people would not be for, even fair minded liberals I know.


Take Randi Rhoades. In a recent clip she compared George Bush to Fredo Corleone, and suggested someone take him on a fishing trip and kill him.

Don't believe me? Take a listen.

What I've been saying for years

Well not years, but for a while. It seems the government was wrong about obesity deaths.

The death toll from obesity is less than a third of the government's previous estimate, researchers are reporting today, contradicting warnings that poor diet and physical inactivity are overtaking smoking as the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States.

A study by respected researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute found that being obese accounted for 112,000 deaths in 2000, far fewer than the estimate of 400,000 deaths in a separate CDC study published last year.

Also, being Kate Moss skinny isn't as healthy as all the pointy heads thought either.

The latest study had another surprising finding: People who are modestly overweight but not obese have a lower risk of death than people of normal weight. Indeed, the fewer deaths from being modestly overweight partially canceled out the deaths from obesity.

The study -- which looked at death rates and body mass index, or BMI, and used newer, more reliable data and a more sophisticated analysis than the earlier research -- was the most comprehensive yet on the impact of obesity. The results are published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am overweight at 230 lbs. But I am 6 foot and with a large frame. According to the government, I could go as low as 140 pounds and be healthy. No way. I'll take my chances eating hard, working hard, and playing a lot in between.

$50 for a Glock? No way!!

I was at a meeting last night and they were talking about the most noble of pursuits. Eliminating gun voilence. While I think gun voilence sucks, and that people who have guns whould protect their kids from touching their guns, I think that the plan this community had was wishful thinking.

That plan is the Gun Buyback program.

Even liberal estimates say that gun voilence is not eliminated by gun buyback programs.

Still, independent follow-up studies of gun buybacks in Seattle, Sacramento, St. Louis and Boston found no evidence that the programs reduced gun crime. In Seattle, researchers also checked coroner's records and hospital admissions data for the six months following a buyback in 1992. They found no evidence of an effect on firearms-related deaths or injuries.

Most of the guns that are turned in for the measley $50 or so are either broken, or are junky guns. People who generally turn them in want to get rid of a gun they inherited or were given. Maybe they found God and want to rid their home of Guns.

Criminals will turn in broken guns for money to buy better guns, or drugs.

But even if I did find religion and wanted to get rid of my gun, I would not trade in my Glock 17 for $50 at a buyback program to have them melt it down, when I can sell it to a gun shop for $500.

Would you?

Giddy over Death

It appears that Terri Schiavo will die. All her appeals are exhausted, the liberals are happy to report that she is going to die.

Now I am for the right to die on your own terms. I think if you are terminal, YOU can make the decision on how you leave the world. This case is different. There are so many variables unanswered. Michael Schiavo is a punk who deserves to burn in hell for his refusual to evel allow her to have her teeth brushed.

But that's not what I wanted to say. Have you noticed that all the liberals and people on Michael's side seem to want her to die? They seemed angry that her murder might be delayed. They seem thrilled that she is going to die.

Why is starving a woman to death ok, but killing a mass murderer by lethal injection bad in their eyes?

Being a witness before congress she should have special protections from being killed by her husband. According to laws passed by the duly elected legislature that is.

The subpoenas, copies of which were obtained by FOX News, were issued to Schiavo herself, her husband, the hospice administrator and two attending physicians.

In addition to their testimony, the subpoenas required that Schiavo's feeding tube remain in place, stating: "No things including those things reflecting data, information, or records called for by this request shall be destroyed, modified, transferred, disconnected, discontinued, or otherwise made inaccessible to the Committee."

Further, they directed: "This request is continuing in nature and applies to any newly deployed things required for the continued hydration and nutrition of Theresa Schiavo."

Apparently a judge in Florida feels he is above those laws especially since he is a non elected oligarch.

He is essentialy ignoring the congressional subpeonas. If someone acted that defiantly in his court room you know he woud throw a typical judge temper tantrum of finding YOU in contempt. As if a non elected black robed lawyer (and you know how much lawyers are regarded) deserves any iota of respect from anyone who cherishes liberty, rule of law, and seperation of powers.

"I have had no cogent reason why the (congressional) committee should intervene," Greer told attorneys in a conference call, adding that last-minute action by Congress does not invalidate years of court rulings

Just remember. A judge is nothing more than a lawyer in costume.

Robert 'KKK' Byrd

You by know should have heard about West Virgina Senator and former Klansman Robert Byrd comparing Republicans to Nazis because they wanted to amend the Senate rules to only require a simple majority to stop debate on judicial nominees. This rule would, in effect, outlaw the filibuster on Judicial nominees and is referred to as the Nuclear option.

We, unlike Nazi Germany or Mussolini's Italy, have never stopped being a nation of laws, not of men," Byrd said. "But witness how men with motives and a majority can manipulate law to cruel and unjust ends."

Byrd then quoted historian Alan Bullock, saying Hitler "turned the law inside out and made illegality legal."

Byrd added, "That is what the 'nuclear option' seeks to do."

According to Foxnews, his hometown newspaper has dug up Byrd's other uses of the Filibuster

But Sen. Byrd’s hometown newspaper just dug up a controversial incident from the senator’s own use of the filibuster — a 14-hour speech he gave on the floor of the Senate in 1964, designed to kill the pending Civil Rights Act (search). At the time, the president of the local chapter of the NAACP (search) had this to say about the Senator’s filibuster:

"The one-man talkathon staged by Sen. Byrd for 14 hours last night and this morning indicates the extent to which a mind warped with hate and prejudice will go — even in the hallowed halls of Congress.

No wonder Robert Byrd loves the filibuster.

He loves Churchill(s)

I don't watch Bill Maher. I think he is a non-funny asshole. He hates this country. When someone has to start a monologue with "I love this country, but...", you know they are just trying to to get killed by Red Staters.

In his recent show, Real Time with Bill Maher, that aired over the weekend, he interviews fake injun Ward Churchill. And you can tell this guy is an affirmative action hire. He is totally inept and inarticulate.

A comment from Tim Russo goes pretty far to show how common-sense Democrats can't even stand the guy:

As a Democrat, I move that we put Bill Maher on a plane and send him to Martha Stewart's ranch as a stable boy so he can shovel actual horse shit for a living.  He should be fired for this show.  Period.  As for Churchill, when you see him on Maher's show, you begin to wonder if anyone ever embodied the stereotypical head up his ass, anti-social, blinking, twitching, insane homeless blogger better than this guy.  Not bloody likely.

Maher ends by suggesting we have a "Why they hate us" display at ground zero.  I have a better idea.  This video should be placed in the DNC lobby, running on a continuous loop 24 hours a day, under the banner "Why voters hate us".

National Ledger has a great overview of the whole thing.

You can watch the love fest at Crooks and Liars by downlodaing the 17 meg movie.

Hitler pushed for indecency laws

Cnet reports that next in line for indecency violation fines is pay tv. That means that HBO, Sirius, and Cinemax for example will be able to be fined for "violations"

Ted Stevens, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation, said on Tuesday that he would push for applying broadcast decency standards to cable television, as well as subscription satellite TV and radio.

"Cable is a much greater violator in the indecency area," the Alaska Republican told the National Association of Broadcasters, which represents most local-television and radio affiliates. "I think we have the same power to deal with cable as over-the-air" broadcasters.

"There has to be some standard of decency," he said. But he also cautioned that "no one wants censorship.

I'm glad he doesn't want censorship. But why limit it to other tyings you pay for? What about those pesky books? Or Blogs? Some are indecent. Lets just burn everything that might be offensive to someone at anytime in their life.

Defend the Defenders: Ilario Pantano

I thought our soldier's jobs are to kill terrorists. I thought war was hell, and that the object was not to die for your country, but to make the other SOB die for his?

Tell the Marines.

A Marine by the name of Ilario Pantano is being tried for premeditated murder for killing a pair of terrorists.

RALEIGH, N.C. — A Marine has been charged with a military count of premeditated murder for shooting two Iraqis during a search for an enemy hide-out, and faces a possible death sentence if found guilty, his lawyer said Thursday.

Second Lt. Ilario G. Pantano, 33, is accused of "numerous violations" of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the Marine Corps said.

Michelle Malkin discusses it as does Jack Lewis

What kind of world is this?

I urge you to read these stories and get the word out. The lives of our soldiers are at stake.

Smoke this Churchill

If you want proof that liberals hate America, just look at the babblilngs and American hating speak of Ward Churchill. Furthermore what is worse is the throngs of adoring fans that cheer his hatespeak.

A University of Colorado professor who ignited a firestorm by likening the World Trade Center victims to Nazis received a standing ovation Tuesday from a crowd of more than a thousand who packed a ballroom to hear him speak.

University officials had announced plans to cancel the speech because of security concerns then backed off after Ward Churchill filed a lawsuit earlier Tuesday asking a judge to force the school to let him speak.

More than two dozen campus police officers inside the ballroom used handheld metal detectors to scan attendees for weapons. It was not immediately clear if police found any.

Outside the ballroom, about 250 people who were turned away, listened to Churchill's speech on speakers set up by university officials.

The crowd was loud and orderly as an Churchill, whose writings and speeches face a 30-day university review that could lead to his dismissal, spoke: "I do not work for the taxpayers of the state of Colorado. I do not work for (Gov.) Bill Owens. I work for you," he said to thunderous applause.

I defend his right to be an asshole. I don't necessarily think he should be fired. Part of free speech is defending any kind of speech, including hatespeak.

The more he speaks like this, the more reasonable thinking people will see how looney the left is.

Democrats are freakin stupid

Wizbang points out that Democrats always deny that there is any trouble with Social Security Insurance. Despite clear data otherwise, they claim all is hunkey dorey.

But when it comes to global warming, with no clear cut evidence for it, they see it as impending doom for us all. I guess science fiction trumps science fact.

Am I the only one that sees this?

A KOS by any other name

A very popular blog that many American hating leftists read is The Daily Kos. This blog could give an Instalanche to Instapundit, as KOS gets about twice the readership of the puppy blender.

The Weekly Standard has a very good story about Kos that shows despite his wacko left leanings and hate filled venom, readers stay put and so do advertisers. Many advertisers are liberal Democrat politicans.

TEN MONTHS AGO Kos's ascendancy seemed hardly pre-ordained. On April 1, 2004, Kos responded to the savage murder of four American contractors in Falluja by writing, "I feel nothing over the death of the mercenaries [sic]. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them."

At the time of this outburst, Kos was using his blog as a platform to create advertising revenue and to establish credibility for a political consulting business. His outburst threatened to destroy the budding project.

Immediately Kos' foils in the conservative blogosphere demanded that the politicians who advertised on Daily Kos remove their ads and disassociate themselves from both the site and its proprietor. One of the first to heed this call was Texas Democrat Martin Frost. His campaign noted its departure from Kos's site by saying, "There is no place for these disgusting remarks in this nation's discussion on foreign policy." Other campaigns followed the Frost campaign's lead and it seemed like Kos might have been in trouble.

But then something funny happened. While politicians distanced themselves from the site, Kos's fans stayed put. A quick glance at Kos's traffic figures for April of 2004 shows no drop-off in the wake of Moulitsas' controversial comments.

I expect a pundit like Kos to say wacky things. But I expect the public to know when they are reading a wacko. When Kos in effect said that he didn't care about the dead contractors and his readership didn't drop off, it goes a long way to explain what the left has become.

The National Review has a great article detailing how the left has become a wacko party of division.

Sour Grapes

The folks at Democratic Underground appear to be none pleased at the prospect of Democratic elections in Iraq.

Apparently desite all other evidence, it is all made up.

Need proof of their lunacy? Read their posts

Here are a few examples

With a third of the counrty not voting. A very volitaile third. . .
And the Kurds are going to want to separate. That's even better.

I hear that the Iraqis are really electing "a process" rather than candidates to represent them. That's the latest spin on this lotto draw for a "representative" government. Disgusting.

Totally bogus made-up numbers by this fucking piece of shit Bush administration. They need turnout to be high to claim victory.

Plus while I was writing this story a poster named Mobrule posted a message to the effect that the numbers of only 7% turnout that the DU'ers were citing were wrong. Morbule even posted to several sources that validated his post and discredited the DU posters.

His message strangely vanished along with all his replies. It seems that the "Big Tent" message board that Democratic Underground claims to be is only supportive of free speech if you refer to George Bush as "Mother Fucker" or Dr. Rice as a "mammy".

And you need more proof that hard core libs hate America?

Here's the link.

Michelle Malkin has a very comprehensive list of sour pusses. and when The Beltway heas about it, watch out!!

What is with the Democratic Party

I was asked by the Alliance to comment on the state of the Democratic party.

The question is what can be done to fix it? My answer is simple. Like a sick dog or a lame horse. Put it out of it's misery.

That will be easy because we won't have to hold the gun. The Democratic party has a revolver in it's mouth right now. All they need is a little incentive to pull the trigger.

Just look at the way they are obstructing Condoleezza Rice's nomination to Secretary of State. Or how they stoped Miguel Estrada from being the first Hispanic to that court.

Just show them for what they are, give them some bait, and they'll hang themselves.

Robbie "KKK" Byrd

fashionablerobertbyrd.jpg Robert "KKK" Byrd is holding up Dr. Rice's nomination to be Secretary of State.
The Congress of Racial Equality blasted Sen. Robert Byrd on Thursday for holding up full Senate confirmation for Secretary of State-nominee Condoleezza Rice, denouncing the former Ku Klux Klansman as an unreconstructed "racist."

"It's not surprising," CORE spokesman Niger Innis told NewsMax. "Byrd was a racist 50 years ago under the guise of leading the Dixiecrats and he's a non-reformed Dixiecrat today."

Innis said the only difference between the Robert Byrd of the 1950s and now is, "He's got black colleagues in the House and the Senate who apologize for him."
The Senate had been poised to confirm Dr. Rice on Thursday when Byrd and Sen. Barbara Boxer threatened to extend debate and force a postponement, CNN reported Thursday morning.

With that, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid asked the Republican Majority for nine hours of debate on Rice's nomination, now scheduled for Tuesday.

Innis also shed some light on a report Tuesday that White House political guru Karl Rove was a no show at CORE's annual Martin Luther King Day dinner in New York, where he was slated to be the guest of honor.

He also didn't like Martin Luther King either.

During King's life Byrd urged "well-meaning Negro leaders" to reconsider King. He explained that [King] " was a coward who got other people into trouble."

Of course he said it in that charming southern accent that makes words like Negro sound so quant. Suddenly I have the urge to watch Mississippi Burning to see if there are any other connnections between Byrd and King.

And you wonder what kind of people live in "E I E I O land" (West Virgina) to elect this idiot.

The only ones holding up Rice's nomination are Democrats. The same Democratic party that claims to be for racial equity. (unless they are black Repuplicans)

God is not amused

God is probably getting sick and tired of this asshole being, well, an asshole. I'm sure if God weren't all loving, this man would be one he would hate.

Michael Newdow files an emergency appeal with the Supreme Court to keep prayer out of the innaugauration.

From Foxnews

WASHINGTON — The atheist who tried to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance asked the Supreme Court on Tuesday to bar the saying of a prayer at President Bush's inauguration.

In an emergency filing, Michael Newdow (search) argued that a prayer at Thursday's ceremony would violate the Constitution by forcing him to accept unwanted religious beliefs. His request has been rejected by two lower courts.

This is like people who walk into bars and get upset that there are drunk. When I was on my honeymoon we went to a bar called 8-Traxx located in Disney's Pleasure Island. I was horrified at all the familes there who took their children in strollers to go dancing, and then told people to "please put out their cigarettes, my child is coughing". I'm like

"Get that fucking kid out of a bar"

This is the same guy. Nothing is offensive about prayer. Many Americans do it. The thing is this guy chooses to get offended and then sue. It's our tax dollars defending against this guy.

He should have his license revoked and forced to work for Pat Robertson writing prayerful letters to donors.

As a Deist, I don't pray much. Actually I don't pray at all (except during key Philadelphia Eagles games). If someone wants to say grace at a meal, or before an event, I don't let it bother me.

I'm live and let live. But in the case of Michael Newdow, I think I'll make an exception.

What media Bias?

Well, The Alliance asks the question: what constitutes media bias.

I can think of a few.

If Michael Moore is asked to be the new CBS Evening News anchor.

Michael Newdow is hired by CNN to be the Religion editor.

MSNBC decides to hire additional left leaning hosts to offset the "right-winger", Chris Matthews.

ABC news decides to have Bill Mahr host the next Presidential debate.

Bill Moyers appears on anything other than a government paid for network.

Gonna Turn your Brown Eyes Blue

Again, with the plastic bracelets. This time there are Blue ones to show your support for, well, for hating President Bush.

It seems the gift of American hating Lefties keeps giving. And they do hate America. Just read how they are "Ashamed of Being American"

NEW YORK - After spending 10 days in London with friends who were outspoken about their disdain for President Bush (news - web sites)'s policies, Berns Rothchild came home wishing she had a way to show the world she didn't vote for him.

"I sort of felt ashamed, and didn't really want to be associated with being an American," said Rothchild, who lives in New York City and voted for John Kerry.

Her mother had a suggestion: bracelets, inspired by the Lance Armstrong Foundation's popular "LIVESTRONG" bands, that would signal opposition to Bush.

Thousands of miles away, two women in Idaho had the same idea. So did a woman in Kansas. The result? At least three separate bracelet ventures targeting left-leaning citizens who want to wear their political affiliation on their wrists — and at least one competitor bearing the opposite message.

Rothchild, 35, is selling blue bracelets that say "COUNT ME BLUE," while Laura Adams, of Fairway, Kan., offers blue bracelets that say "HOPE." The McKnight family, of Moscow, Idaho, is even more direct; their black bracelets proclaim: "I DID NOT VOTE 4 BUSH."

On the flip side there are the "Count me Red" Bracelets to show your support for President Bush.

Freedom from God

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

That's why we are here. We have a freedom to speak our minds. On blogs, newspapers, and books. You name it, freedom is everywhere.

Maybe not. It appears there is one thing you are not permitted to talk about. One topic that appears to some to not be covered by the Bill of Rights. The topic is about God.

Somewhere in those words types who want to remove all aspects of God from our world see the following words: "Seperation of Church and State". Hmm, I read the First Amendment several times, and haven't even seen the word "seperated".

I bring this up because our favorate God hater, Michael Newdow is at it again. This time he doesn't want God mentioned when President Bush takes his second Oath of Office.

WASHINGTON — A ruling was expected Friday on atheist Michael Newdow's lawsuit to stop the invocation prayer at President Bush's second inauguration.

On Thursday, Newdow told U.S. District Judge John Bates that having a minister invoke God in the Jan. 20 ceremony would violate the Constitution by forcing him to accept unwanted religious beliefs.

Newdow became famous in 2002 for his unsuccessful attempt to remove the phrase "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. Two years earlier, he also tried to stop the prayer in Bush's first inauguration, but lost in two federal courts.

The government had asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to dismiss the current lawsuit, saying the invocation had been widely accepted for more than 200 years old.

Two ministers delivered Christian invocations at Bush's inaugural ceremony in 2001, and plans call for a minister to do the same before Bush takes the oath of office again next week.

In court, Newdow argued that the prayers violate the constitutional ban on the establishment of religion.

"I am going to be standing there having this imposed on me," Newdow told the court by phone on Thursday. "They will be telling me I'm an outsider at that particular moment."

This is the same guy who tried to get the words "Under God" out of the Pledge of Allegiance.

This guy, who happens to be a lawyer, seems to offended easily at every little thing.

Freedom of religion does not mean freedom from religion. I suggest Mr. Newdow stop being so easily offended.

I like the idea of calling in sick

As you may know, next Thursday the 20th is the day that President bush takes the oath of office (again), much to the chagrin of the American hating liberals.

The liberals are promoting sits ins and turn your back ins. Now the newest idea is avoid everything days. They want you to call in sick, avoid all involvement in economics and totally stay inside and hide sulk.

The details are here at Black-Thursday.com

If you are so inclided, there are also links on that fine web-site to other protests going on. I like this one though. If I could go for a whole day without running into one liberal, I would be happy. If anything it will be a holiday!!

Americans deserve to drown in mud

According to ABC news, the rich gas guzzling Americans who lived in La Conchita deserved to die.

As much as 80 percent of Ventura County, where La Conchita is located on the coast, is marked on maps as being geologically hazardous.

After a 1995 landslide destroyed houses without killing anyone, the county government considered buying every house in town. Instead, officials decided to let homeowners remain and take their own risks.

I didn't hear much from ABC about the people in the tsunami area living "at their own risk".

Dems: "Let's just destroy the party now"

It appears that Senator Barbara Boxer wants to totally destroy the Democratic Party. According to Foxnews, she intends to file a file an official complaint to hald validation of the re-election of George Bush.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., will contest the results of the Electoral College that will give President Bush a second term. A joint session of Congress is set to meet on the matter at 1 p.m. EST Thursday.

Boxer's decision follows a similar one by several Democratic House members. With Boxer's challenge, congressional rules stipulate that senators and representatives must recess to their respective chambers to debate certification.

The action would be the first of its kind in 36 years, but probably will amount to no more than a procedural delay of the inevitable.

Boxer sent a letter to Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones (search), one of the House Democrats set to challenge the results, saying that she was "moved" by Jones' concerns about reported election irregularities in Ohio.

"I have concluded that objecting to the electoral votes from Ohio is the only immediate way to bring these issues to light by allowing you to have a two-hour debate to let the American people know the facts surrounding Ohio's election," Boxer said in the letter.

Go ahead Senator. Destroy any last shred of credibility and respect your party has. Part of the reason you guys lost the last election so soundly is becuase of your stonewalling the President, his appointment, and for being all around obstructionist pain in the asses.

This also sets a dangerous precedent for future belly achers to contest elections they don't like, and sends a message to the places like Iraq (that are just starting their democracies) that ou process is flawed to the point of having to go to this extreme.

Americans who are clear thinking will see this as petty, stupid, and just another reason that the Democratic party doest not stand for America or its values.

Polite way to say I hate America

I almost needed Duct tape when I read this story.

LANCASTER, Pa. At least one Pennsylvania Democrat is having a hard time getting over President Bush's re-election.
A city councilman in Lancaster is demanding that photos of the president be removed from a stand in the town's farmers market. Councilman Nelson Polite says the city needs what he calls a "healing period" following the bitterly contested election.

But David Stoltzfus is refusing to remove the photos from his bakery stand, and Polite has threatened to enact a city law against political material in public places.

The town's Republican mayor says the flap is bad for tourism in the Amish country town.

But the baker is enjoying the attention, saying even some Democrats want him to keep the photos in place

George Bush is the President of the United States. If you don't like it tough. He won election so this guy has every right to have a picture of the leader of OUR country.

Where is the ACLU trying to protect Mr. Stolzfus's rights?

Oh, that's right. They are trying to sue a school for trying to teach Creation in addition to Evolution and the Big Bang.

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The state American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Tuesday against a Pennsylvania school district to stop it from teaching an alternative theory of evolution that many say is just another form of creationism.


Should students be required to learn a theory of creation by a divine being?

Results | Disclaimer
The lawsuit stems from the Dover Area School Board's decision to mandate the teacher of an alternative theory to evolution. The theory, called intelligent design, holds that the complexity of the universe suggests creation by a divine being rather than through evolution.

The School Board voted 6-3 on Oct. 18 to include this curriculum in its biology class.

Six of the 11 school parents who are plaintiffs took part in a press conference Tuesday at the state Capitol. Angie Yingling is one of those parents. She said the School Board established the curriculum for religious reasons, not to improve science education.

"I believe it's wrong to introduce a non-scientific explanation of the origins of life into the science curriculum," Yingling said

Ok Ms. DinaLing, so the schools aren't supposed to teach a "non scientific" explanation. It's called a theory. It's probably correct, but who the hell knows. Also the new curriculum they are going to teach is also called a theory. Theory of creationism.

Schools are meant to foster thought by promoting several viewpoints, not just the one that doesn't anger people like Mrs Yingling.

When we start defining what is taught in schools based the the tyranny of the few we will have schools systems similar to the ones in Russia, Nazi Germany, and the Islamofascist world where only a "popular" viewpoint is taught.

Kids Rule, Parents Drool

When will the big one just take away the whole left coast and all those wacky judges?

It seems if you are a parent, you can't listen in on your child's phone conversation.

SEATTLE -- In a victory for rebellious teenagers everywhere, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a mother violated Washington's privacy act by eavesdropping on her daughter's phone conversation.

Privacy advocates hailed the ruling.

The mother, however, was unrepentant.

"It's ridiculous! Kids have more rights than parents these days," said mom Carmen Dixon, 47, of Friday Harbor. "My daughter was out of control, and that was the only way I could get information and keep track of her. I did it all the time."

The Supreme Court ruled that Dixon's testimony against a friend of her daughter should not have been admitted in court because it was based on the intercepted conversation. The justices unanimously ordered a new trial for Oliver Christensen, who had been convicted of second-degree robbery in part due to Dixon's testimony.

I hate California

Sometimes I wish the big one would come. 12.0 on the Richter scale and while out the whole state of California.

This makes me wish it was sooner than later.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A California teacher has been barred by his school from giving students documents from American history that refer to God -- including the Declaration of Independence.

Steven Williams, a fifth-grade teacher at Stevens Creek School in the San Francisco Bay area suburb of Cupertino, sued for discrimination on Monday, claiming he had been singled out for censorship by principal Patricia Vidmar because he is a Christian.

"It's a fact of American history that our founders were religious men, and to hide this fact from young fifth-graders in the name of political correctness is outrageous and shameful," said Williams' attorney, Terry Thompson.

I guess the Bill of Rights is questionable too.

Back in Black

Well, the lefties are running out of ways to make themselves look like total morons. First there was the Vomit protests; lefties literally broke into places and threw up to protest the war. They broke into President Bush's campaign headquaters, stole signs, and put out all these stupid movies.

Now in a final act of defiance of a losing side, they are pushing their Turn Your Backs On Bush innaugural spectatular!

We're calling on people to attend inauguration without protest signs, shirts or stickers. Once through security and at the procession, at a given signal, we'll all turn our backs on Bush's motorcade and continue through his speech and swearing in. A simple, clear and coherent message.

How about my form of protest. It's called www.bashahippyskull.com. On a given day. A bunch of God fearing, USA loving Americans will go out with baseball bats and beat up hippies. They shouldn't be hard to find. Just follow the smell.

Rally for a New Job

Man, the liberal anti-American cartoonists are a gift that keeps on giving.

American hating liberal Ted Rall was dropped from washingtonpost.com according to Editor and Publisher.

WashingtonPost.com is no longer running the cartoons of hard-hitting liberal Ted Rall.

Rall said he thinks the site dropped his work because of a Nov. 4 cartoon he did showing a drooling, mentally handicapped student taking over a classroom. "The idea was to draw an analogy to the electorate -- in essence, the idiots are now running the country," he told E&P.

"That cartoon certainly drew a significant amount of negative comment from our users," said WashingtonPost.com Executive Editor Doug Feaver when contacted by E&P. But he added that the decision to drop Rall was a "cumulative" one that had been building for a while.

Well, I am not one of those who would call for his firing. I think asshats like this have every right to spew their venom. And if the election of 2004 shows anything, their airing their "opinions" will even further weaken thair cause.


A typical Ted Rall 'toon'

Mammy's little baby loves shortnin shortnin

In another disgusting show of Liberalism and how liberals are racist, take a look at this totally disgusting cartoon.

From Slate's Matt Davies

I like it how liberals talk about doing everything to get African-Americans out of poverty and ahead in life. But that is all it is. Just talk. It is the modern Democratic party that is the racist group which is holding many African-Americans down.

They throw entitlements at them, and talk about working for equality, but when an African-American gets ahead (especially if they are conservative and didn't rely on their lies and handouts) they are referred to as parrots, mammys, wearing black faces, and being Neanderthals. That Neanderthal comment came from the senior senator from Massasschuttes. I guess we know HE isn't a Neanderthal. Afterall, Neanderthals couldn't swim.

I thought liberals like African-Americans?

Well, you know if these cartoons were about African-American liberals there would be all sorts of hell to pay, but I guess when you are a liberal, you get a pass.

Meanwhile at Democratic Underground

Over at Democratic Underground, the American hating left continues to spit venom. This time they are after the Marines who are fighting the war on terror.

First it comes from this Reuters story.

FALLUJA, Iraq (Reuters) - U.S. Marines rallied round a comrade under investigation for killing a wounded Iraqi during the offensive in Falluja, saying he was probably under combat stress in unpredictable, hair-trigger circumstances.

Marines interviewed on Tuesday said they didn't see the shooting as a scandal, rather the act of a comrade who faced intense pressure during the effort to quell the insurgency in the city.

"I can see why he would do it. He was probably running around being shot at for days on end in Falluja. There should be an investigation but they should look into the circumstances," said Lance Corporal Christopher Hanson.

"I would have shot the insurgent too. Two shots to the head," said Sergeant Nicholas Graham, 24, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. "You can't trust these people. He should not be investigated. He did nothing wrong.

I agree. These people don't play fair. The put up white flags of truce, and then have snipers pick off our boys from the towers of mosques. They booby trap their dead and otherwise don't play by regular rules of war.

Add to the fact that these are the same type of assholes who flew planes into the World Trade Center

But the American hating left don't see it that way. They see our boys at fault.

And then a user named bowens43 writes

The cicumstances are irrelevent. He shot an unarmed man who was lying on the floor. He should be prosecuted like the criminal that he is. These marines are fucking animals.

"Fucking animals"? These are the people who put their life on their line for this country. These Marines are stamped from the same mold as the brave souls who died in WW II so you can continue to hate America.

And if that previous one didn't prove they hate America, read this one:

What was that about how "all it takes for evil to grow, is for good men to do nothing", well evil has revealed itself and good people have done nothing.

The US is not the light of the world, it's the bringer of darkness.

I think I've said enough.

I want lovin from my dum dum dummy (otherwise known as Democrats.com)

Well, over at Democrats dot Com they are on Stolen Election 2004 watch, with this overly hopeful post about getting votes so Kerry can still win the election.

If you assume, for the sake of argument, that Kerry receives 80 percent of the 130,000 provisional ballots most observers expect will be validated... Kerry would receive 104,000 votes and President Bush would get 26,000.  That's a net gain for John Kerry of 78,000.  At that point, the margin between President Bush and Senator Kerry would drop to 58,000 votes. 

Now, let's assume a preference can be determined on all 93,000 spoiled ballots.  And let's also assume John Kerry receives 80% and President Bush receives 20%.  John Kerry would receive 74,400 votes and President Bush would receive 18,600 votes.  That's another net gain for John Kerry of 55,800.  However, that still  leaves John Kerry 3,000 votes short.

They just can't take it can they. They lost. They suck and Republicans are sexier, smarter, and gosh darnit; people like us more.

Michael Moore Calls the Republican

My local paper, The Republican and Herald has a section where people can call in, and have their short, pithy, and often retarded comments posted.

In today's paper, it appears that Michael Moore has called in, judging by the ignorance, hypocrisy, and general hatred for America in the comment.

Now that President Bush has won the election, when are we and Sen. Santorum going to reward the religious right by changing the name of our country to the Christian United States of America? Are they going to change the name of the Republican Party to the Taliban? No, sorry, that name is taken. When will they make women were [sic] burkas? We live in a democracy. When will Bush and other learn that we don't want a Christian theocracy

Yes you liberal idiot. This is a democracy. And the Red side has won. Your side not only lost, but after sacking your quarterback we went after his mother too. Then we stole some candy from a baby and burned down a mosque. We also burned the constitution while no one was looking.

Bush won by more than 3 million votes. He received 60,000,000 votes and has a clear mandate. The sheer fact that you can't come to terms shows that you cannot accept reality.

So I also guess your idea of democracy is that the election only counts if YOUR side wins?

I dun too stoopid to know better

According to the Democrats, the Red States are stupid and the Blue states are smarter.

Well the party of compassion seems to miss the boat when it comes to donating to chairty, according to Michelle Malkin

It seems that red staters donate more to charity. I can't say my state did well as it is a Kerry state.

More Democratic Hate Speech

As the Liberals continue to become unhinged, they are throwing bombs. And unlike a wounded animal that is most dangerous when mortally wounded, the liberals actually manage to stab themselves in the stomach while floundering around trying to damage middle-Amerca.

And if you know anything about stomach wounds, you know that they lead to slow, painful, and inevitable death.

Read Moreen Dowd in the Old Grey Hag (Formerly known as the Old York Times)

You will also find this in Webster's dictionary under "hate speech"

While Mr. Bush was making his little speech about reaching out, Republicans said they had "the green light" to pursue their conservative agenda, like drilling in Alaska's wilderness and rewriting the tax code.

"He'll be a lot more aggressive in Iraq now," one Bush insider predicts. "He'll raze Falluja if he has to. He feels that the election results endorsed his version of the war." Never mind that the more insurgents American troops kill, the more they create.

Just listen to Dick (Oh, lordy, is this cuckoo clock still vice president?) Cheney, introducing the Man for his victory speech: "This has been a consequential presidency which has revitalized our economy and reasserted a confident American role in the world." Well, it has revitalized the Halliburton segment of the economy, anyhow. And "confident" is not the first word that comes to mind for the foreign policy of a country that has alienated everyone except Fiji.

Vice continued, "Now we move forward to serve and to guard the country we love." Only Dick Cheney can make "to serve and to guard" sound like "to rape and to pillage."

He's creating the sort of "democracy" he likes. One party controls all power in the country. One network serves as state TV. One nation dominates the world as a hyperpower. One firm controls contracts in Iraq.

A little bitter heh?

Well that is to be expected. They are stupid LOSERS, and actions like that make me want to continue rubbing their big LOSS into their faces, sullen with LOSS!!

W in '08!!

Jay Nordlinger points something out

I just realized whom the GOP should nominate in '08 — George W. Bush! Paul Begala and the rest of the lefty talking heads have been saying all week that 2004 is the first election that GWB actually won, since he 'stole' the 2000 election — so let's agree with them, and go ahead and make this Bush's first official term!

Bob Herbert Hates Americans

As I mentioned earlier, Liberals think you are stupid. We are stupid for voting for the dumb jackass, George W. Bush.

Read what Bob Herbert has to say in the Old York Times

I think a case could be made that ignorance played at least as big a role in the election's outcome as values. A recent survey by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland found that nearly 70 percent of President Bush's supporters believe the U.S. has come up with "clear evidence" that Saddam Hussein was working closely with Al Qaeda. A third of the president's supporters believe weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq. And more than a third believe that a substantial majority of world opinion supported the U.S.-led invasion.

This is scary. How do you make a rational political pitch to people who have put that part of their brain on hold? No wonder Bush won.

What about these people. Or these genuises?

Why is it that despite a clear victory in the election, and after calling for unity, it's the Democrats who are resorting to name calling and vitriol. These New York Liberal elite just don't get America. And they see that as us being retarded and unenlightened.

Democracy Sucks

I am unveiling a new category today in my blog. The new category will highlight how much liberals really hate his fine country of ours and will do anything to apologize for terrorists and countries like France.

I guess in the eyes of many Democracy is something that liberals have to apologize for. The people of America have spoken, and the terrorists who want us dead need to be coddled by the American hating hippy left.
