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.

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.
|What military aircraft are you?|
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.

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.

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!

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.
So, here's me:

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?)

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).

"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!

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.

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.

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.?

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

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.

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!

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.
