Open Season

Okay, I'm not a big rap fan, about the only song that I like is Roses by Andre 3000 (I think). But here's one that you REALLY have to see, and is now one of my favorites of any type.

For more info, read the text here, and some thoughts from the guitarist here.

Pay special attention to the kids in the video, and tell me again how Islam is the 'religion of peace'. Any religion led by a pedophile (Mohammed,piss by upon him) can kiss my ass.

On a lighter side...

I ran across this video on YT just now. At first I thought it was a joke.

Iraq Study Group report released

You can read it for yourself here. Some initial thoughts:

ISG: Our most important recommendations call for new and
enhanced diplomatic and political efforts in Iraq and the region

Translation: Start talks with Syria and Iran. Yeah, let's talk with some of the people who are doing their damnedest to perpetuate the problem.

ISG: If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences
could be severe. A slide toward chaos could trigger the collapse
of Iraq’s government and a humanitarian catastrophe. Neighboring
countries could intervene. Sunni-Shia clashes could
spread. Al Qaeda could win a propaganda victory and expand
its base of operations. The global standing of the United States
could be diminished.

Translation: We MUST win. Okay, this one I agree with. Above all, if we pull out of Iraq before the 'mission is accomplished' (to steal a phrase), it will only embolden terrorists worldwide.

ISG: This diplomatic effort should include
every country that has an interest in avoiding a chaotic
Iraq, including all of Iraq’s neighbors.

Translation: Yep, Syria and Iraq.

ISG: The United States cannot achieve its goals in the Middle
East unless it deals directly with the Arab-Israeli conflict and
regional instability. There must be a renewed and sustained
commitment by the United States to a comprehensive Arab-
Israeli peace on all fronts: Lebanon, Syria, and President Bush’s
June 2002 commitment to a two-state solution for Israel and

Translation: Ah, good, I was wondering when they'd tie Israeli into the mix.

ISG: The Iraqi government should accelerate assuming responsibility
for Iraqi security by increasing the number and
quality of Iraqi Army brigades.

Translation: Make the Iraqi's more responsibile. I agree wholeheartedly.

ISG: As redeployment proceeds, military leaders should emphasize
training and education of forces that have returned to
the United States in order to restore the force to full combat

Translation: Now THIS is a good thing... once we bring our troops home, continue to upgrade our forces.

In total, 79 separate recommendations are contained in the report. Hopefully I'll have time to read the whole report over the next day or so.

I hope I'm an E-model

In the continuing series of "ask a few dumbass questions and compare yourself to an inamimate or fictional object", you can now find out what type of military aircraft you are. Why do I keep wasting my time on these stupid things? Oh yeah, it's kinda cool.

What military aircraft are you?

F-15 Eagle

You are an F-15. Your record in combat is spotless; you've never been defeated. You possess good looks, but are not flashy about it. You prefer to let your reputation do the talking. You are fast, agile, and loud, but reaching the end of your stardom.

October Surprise!

Okay, in November. Maybe the Dems learned from the Foley scandal to not spring the surprise too early.

Rep. Tim Murphy(R), battling in the tightly contested PA CD-8 race, has had allegations brought against him yesterday by 'members of his staff'. He's been accused of forcing the staff "to help Murphy's re-election campaign instead of his constituents."

District office staff member Jayne O'Shaughnessy stated ""I just feel someone has to stand up and report it, because he's a congressman and we all need to look up to him, but he's breaking the rules." KDKA-TV's investigative reporter Andy Sheehan presented Rep. Murphy with documents, presumably from his district office, that direct staff workers to canvas door-to-door "all summer long", a direct violation of Congressional ethics rules. When confronted, Rep. Murphy took the documents from Mr. Sheehan and refused to return them.

Rep. Murphy neither confirmed or denied the allegations, but said he is going to seek a congressional investigation of his own conduct. But isn't it curious that this is only coming to light 4 flippin' days before the election. If the staff were directed to canvas door-to-door all summer, why only NOW is Ms. O'Shaughnessy speaking out?

O'Shaughnessy's title is "District Scheduler", a position she's held since April 2005. Some of the allgations include:

Members of his taxpayer-paid staff have been expected to have campaign materials with them at all times when accompanying the congressman, in case he wants to provide them to constituents.

In sending congressional staff such as unpaid interns to perform door-knocking and drop off official literature throughout the district this summer, they were instructed to stop only at the homes of registered voters.

Multiple staff members from the district office were instructed last December to devote their time to labeling, stuffing and mailing greeting cards to individuals who were campaign contributors of Mr. Murphy's. The postage and materials were paid by his campaign fund, but several staffers said they performed the functions in the middle of the government workday, rather than on their own time.

I'll try to keep up on this as time permits, and post any pertinent information.

Kerry is REALLY screwed now.

Much has been written about Kerry's idiotic remark concerning our troops in Iraq and his refusal to apologize. I'm not going to repeat any of the well-written commentaries, but I did want to provide a link to this pic.

God bless all of our troops, whether you're in Iraq, Afghanistan, on the high seas, or holding the fort back home. We have, without a doubt, the absolute smartest and most courageous fighting men and women in history!

9/11 Truth?

Okay, this is getting scary; I'm agreeing w/Penn and Teller again. And sheesh; this is three posts in one day...


I usually don't agree with Penn and Teller on their political views, but here's one case where I do:

The big problem is that the EU doesn't want us to give genetically engineered crops to starving people in the Third World. Screw 'em; unless/until the EU member countries take a greater hand in helping the worlds' poor, quit your damn whining.

If I were from South Park

I recently started watching South Park (yes, I'm probably one of two people who've never seen it), and saw Which South Park kid are you? on GOC's site.

So, here's me:

Which South Park kid are you most like?


You're pretty normal. Infact you're usually the sane voice of reason when everyone else is going crazy.

Let's just make ALL marriage illegal

The never-ending assault on religious rights has taken a new twist in the EU. The Sexual Orientation Regulations, soon to take effect in the U.K., makes it illegal "for anyone providing goods, services, facilities, education or public functions to discriminate on the grounds that someone is heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual." Sounds good, huh? But what happens when the lefts' desire for equality actually strips away someone elses rights?

This has got to stop. I'm all for equal rights; I've never discriminated against anyone based on their race, religion, skin color, or sexual preference. But the definition of discrimination should not include expressing my displeasure. If I want to hand out leaflets calling homosexuality a sin (not to worry, I don't); then damnit I should be allowed to do that. (Sounds kinda familiar, huh?)

Terrorism IS Manageable

Hallelujah, I finally see the light. Why, oh why, didn't we all listen to Oliver Stone before. That bastion of truth-in-filmaking tells us that terrorism is a manageable action, and that we can live with it.

Hey Stone. Do you maybe want to tell the families of Flight 93's victims that terrorism is manageable? Or what about the families of those who had to jump from 80 floors up as the WTC towers fell? What the hell kind of pompous ass are you, that you can call the 9/11 attacks 'manageable'. Bless your little heart, though, for realizing that not all of the worlds' problems are the fault of the U.S.

I'll tell you how to 'manage' terrorism; relentlessly pursue those responsible, including their financiers. (Yes, this means all you assholes that send money to terrorist organizations; you're just as guilty).

Without Equivocation

Oh, and in response to the question asked by Michelle?

I support the Pope!

Yet another Great Satan?

The United States has been considered the "Great Satan" by the Moslem world. Now, it looks like Pope Benedict XVI, and by extension the Holy Catholic Church, will also be put on the Moslem most-hated list. While in Germany recently, the pope quoted a conversation between "a 14th century Byzantine Christian emperor and an educated Persian." Here's what the Pope said:

"The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war," the pope said. "He said, I quote, "Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached," he quoted the emperor as saying."

Get it, you stupid Mooslems? The Pope didn't say these things, he was quoting the Byzantine emperor. And what's the reaction of the "Religion of Peace"? Try this! Or this!

Michelle, as usual, has excellent commentary on the issue.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Mohammed? Piss be upon him!
A quiz to start off the day... thanks Jim!

Common Sense breaking out at TSA?

Finally, what appears to be some common sense is breaking out at TSA. In short, Air Marshals Director Dana Brown had previously had in place some, well, pretty damn stupid regulations regarding the conduct of air marshals, such as a formal dress code and requiring all air marshals to stay at known hotels when traveling.

Thunder Helos

A VERY cool video I found on GOC's site:

Educational TV?

One of my daily routines is to visit the good folks at HotAir. Every weekday they bring insightful information on various topics, mainly the War on Terror. Michele Malkin and crew work hard to keep the rest of informed on things we may not ever hear about. Well, today I saw something there that was just so vile and disgusting, it actually turns my stomach to think about it. (and that takes a lot).

You've probably heard about the guy in Brooklyn who recently was arrested for re-broadcasting Al Manar TV, which is a propaganda arm of Hizbollah. Well, Michelle, Bryan, and Allahpundit at HotAir took a look into some of the programming on Al Manar. One of the things they showed was a TV show that depicted a Jew (possibly Hassidic?) demanding the 'blood of a Christian boy'. A young boy was led into the room with fear in his eyes. The shot then switched to the young boy having his head forced over what looks like a bowl on the floor, with him crying and begging for help from his Mama. Next, the boys' cries suddenly stop, and we see blood spilling out on the floor. Yeah, them Jews are just SO bloodthirsty, constantly coming after the Christians for their insane, evil rituals.

Religion of Peace? My ass it's the religion of peace. Where the hell is CAIR in this? What about Michael Moore or Arianna Huffington, why don't they talk about this? No, they'd rather talk about how the levee's breaking is all Bush's fault.

Mohammed? Piss be upon him.

This says it all!

Too much info!

Why, oh why, would a teacher talk to 9 and 10 year olds about abortion? Katherine McGuire, a fourth-grade teacher in Canonsburg, PA's Hills-Hendersonville Elementary School did just that. McGuire, in a social studies class, was explaining the voting process to her students when one student asked about abortion. This wacko teacher then decided to explain exactly how an abortion is performed; describing for the students how a needle is injected into the womb, then the fetus is sucked out and killed.

The teacher was suspended with pay, while the PA State Education Association is of course backing the teacher. Many parents are rightly upset with the teacher, and are demanding action. Read the full article here.

Extremist Wacko's

I'm really fed up. I just finished listening to the recently-released audio clips of that wacko UNC-CH student who ran over nine people in his SUV. (You can listen to it here.) What in the HELL is wrong with some of these people. Thankfully, some Islamic groups have already issued condemnations for the act... I wonder what (if anything) George Clooney or Sean Penn will have to say on the subject.

What's up doc?

I've always heard some of the horror stories coming from countries that have a National Health Service, but never found a good source for some of the info.

Well, I just found a GREAT blog discussing national health care, and what can go wrong. Dr. Crippen, in his diary, relates what really happens on a day-by-day basis when you're saddled with socialized medicine.

Look, I'd love to see everyone in the U.S. have inexpensive access to quality medical care. But from everything I've read and heard (and I looked into this a fair amount back when Hillary tried to push this through her, er, Bill's White House), the dangers of a NHS far outweigh any apparent benefit. My son recently hyperextended his knee while playing basketball... he had an MRI appointment within 1 1/2 weeks (it's today, in fact). And his knee isn't all that bad... he can't straighten it as much as he should, but he can walk around on it (he limps a bit). He's not in any pain; it just stiffens up on him after sitting for awhile. So 1 1/2 weeks; hmm, not bad. How long would he have to wait if we had a socialized system like Canada or the U.K.?

Tit for Tat?

Now this is really disgusting. The Sheaf, the student-run newspaper of the University of Saskatchewan, ran an editorial last week discussing the Mohammed cartoon controversy, along with their reasons for not running the cartoons. Specifically, they state that because of the violence shown by fanatics, they don't want to stoke the fires. But then they turn around and run (mistakenly, of course... yeah right!) a cartoon showing Jesus giving oral sex to a "capitalist pig". Just how do you make that mistake, anyway... is there no oversight from the editorial staff on what gets published?

Hmm, maybe it's time to rape and pillage!

Education in America

Our wonderful teacher unions are at it again... desperate to save their cushy, taxpayer-financed, difficult-to-fire-from jobs, they're attacking anyone who questions our public school system. Now it's John Stossel, of ABC's 20/20. John's had a series of tv and internet reports detailing some of the problems with America's education system. I'm sure everybody's heard the claims; U.S. students are falling behind in test scores, especially in the critical areas of math and science, when compared to the rest of the world; public schools are costing more money and delivering less product; school choice has worked in other countries and works here when it's attempted. (See some of his great columns here).

I don't know the answers, and I don't know enough to say whether John (and many others) are right or wrong. I do know, from personal experience, that public school teachers run the gamut from caring, very intelligent, highly effective teachers to lazy, incompetent slobs doing just enough to keep their positions. How do I know this? I work for an education software company in the research department, and I regulary visit and observe public schools.

My point, however, is that the teacher unions just plain don't want to address the issues that John Stossel raises. Instead of addressing the issues, they're demonstrating today at ABC offices in New York, Chicago, and others. The organizers claim his reporting "so violates the democratic principles of open-mindedness, balance, and fairness we hold dear as educators of Social Studies, and so departs from the standards of objective and unbiased journalism...".

Violates the democratic principles of open-mindedness? What the hell are they talking about? Just because they don't agree with John's reporting? C'mon, gimmee a freaking break. And why haven't they addressed the concerns and questions that are raised? Teachers unions are in a purely defensive mode across the country; how about spending some of this energy improving school education instead of attacking critics?

Maybe the problem will take care of itself?

I guess Darwin has a hand in the Israeli-Palestine conflict also!

What is it with Hamas? Whether you're on the Palestinians or the Israeli's side, one thing is certain; Israel is not going to roll over and play dead. Yet Hamas refuses to take any steps to try to bring about a peaceful settlement of the situation.

Religion Of Peace... yeah, right!

Saw this post detailing yet more deaths directly attributable to the cartoon controversy, and radical Muslim's over-reactions to the issue. I guess I shouldn't be too harsh, though. Remember all the riots and mayhem when Piss Christ and Elephant Dung Mary were first released? Oh yeah, there weren't any.

The editors at Jyllands-Posten are in hiding; the cartoon creators dare not be seen in public; Danish missions have been attacked across the globe, many deaths have been directly caused by the cartoon controversy, but we're supposed to believe Islam is the "religion of peace"??? Yeah, right. More like this!

The dangers of universal health care?

I've always been divided on the issue of universal, government-sponsored health care. On the one hand, I hate to see anybody NOT get medical treatment they so desperately need. I've heard horror stories, however, about the dismal state of health care in countries like Canada and England; two glaring examples of national health care. Now I've run across this story about little Charlotte Wyatt of England. So what I'd like to know; would the decision have been any different in a country that doesn't have universal health care?

Okay, I don't normally enjoy pop music; my tastes run more towards classic rock, some alternative, but here's one video I really enjoy. It seems Muslim pop singer Deeyah is really pissing off the Muslim world with her latest video. (You've gotta have Quicktime installed to view it.) Deeyah's video "What will be?" deals with women's rights, which we ALL know is taboo in the Muslim religion. Women's rights? What are those? And apparently one music TV network (Asian B4U) has already pulled her video because of complaints. Well, I say the hell with them. Deaeyh, while I probably won't necessarily enjoy all of your music, I admire the guts and determination you're showing, and I applaud you for it. All the best, Deaeyh. (see some more info here).


Welcome to my blog; I'm new to the blogosphere, so if I make some snafu's, please forgive me!

HAH! Actually, I don't really care if you forgive me or not, and that's the main point of this site. I'm sick and tired of people telling me how we have to have 'tolerance' for others' views, lifestyle, religious choice, etc. I'm fed up with the US kowtowing to the Islamofascists. I may not be able to add anything to the already high-quality blogs out there, but what the hell, this is the perfect way for me to rant and rave.

I've thought about doing a blog for a while, but the idea really started to pick up steam with the Mohammed cartoon controversy. If you're curious, here're some great cartoons dealing with the whole controversy.
