1938 To 2006: 40 Years, But The Same Old Line

Why bother with cheesy Hollywood "B" horror flicks when reality can be so frightening?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's letter to the U.S. was released today. I know it is a bit long-winded, but a must read, nevertheless.

Once you get done with that malarky, read this.

An excerpt:
Herr Hitler says that he wants to promote better understanding between Germany, Britain and France, as long as they don't get in the way of what he considers to be a 'just settlement' in Poland.

Britain too would like to improve her relations with Germany, but the British Government feels that they must hold fast to the Pact that they signed with Poland last week, which would involve Britain immediately, should Poland be attacked by another country.

Sound eerily familiar? Forget the lessons of history, and one is doomed to repeat them.

Thank You, Drive Thru.

A Rockford, Minnesota man is so far facing burglary charges after he got liquored up and grabbed two women through their bedroom windows in an effort to have sex.

The first incident occurred about midnight on Saturday, when Bryan Westerlund approached the bedroom window of a woman watching television, and stuck his hands in through the window. He reportedly asked in rather crude terms his desire for copulation.

Westerlund ran off when she began to dial 911, and fourteen minutes later he was at it again...

Less than a half-mile away, he knocked the screen out of another woman's bedroom window, thrust his hands in and grabbed her hair, saying, "I want to be with you; I want to have sex with you."

Pretty romantic stuff, huh?

The woman pulled away and bit Westerlund after he grabbed her a second time. Police picked him up shortly thereafter.

I guess he was too drunk to realize that he wasn't at a drive through, and there are some things you can't get there anyway.

Government: The Blind Leading The Blind

Is U.S. currency keeping the blind man down?

A Federal judge decided that the government is discriminating against blind people by producing paper money that all looks (hahahaha) and feels the same.

The American Council of the Blind suggests that we start printing bills of different sizes, add embossed dots or foil, or use raised ink. They also claim that the government is violating the Rehabilitation Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.

So it seems that now, unless we think ahead to make special accommodations for people, we are discriminating? How ridiculous.


"It's just frankly unfair that blind people should have to rely on the good faith of people they have never met in knowing whether they've been given the correct change," said Jeffrey A. Lovitky, attorney for the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

Others have developed ways to cope with the similarly shaped bills. Melanie Brunson, a member of the American Council of the Blind, told the court that she folds her bills into different shapes: $1 bills stay straight, $5 bills are folded in half left to right, $10 bills in half top to bottom and $20 in quarters.

Perhaps this is oversimplifying things, but it seems to me that we're practically a cashless society anyway... Rather than change all the money around, may I humbly suggest the use of checkcards.

American Hero: Compassion In Action

Something else you won't see in the main stream media: Chief Master Sgt. John Gebgardt comforting a wounded Iraqi baby under the medical care of the U.S.

The infant received extensive gunshot injuries to the head when terrorists attacked her family, murdering both her parents and most of her siblings. She was left for dead.

The Chief Master Sgt. often held the baby while they both slept, as he was the only one who could comfort her.

"I pray for the best for the Iraqi children," he said. "I can't tell the difference between their kids and our kids. The Iraqi parents have the same care and compassion for their children as any American."

All the more reason not to abandon these people, don't you think?

Government Treason: Ignoring Illegal Aliens

We all know that the economical and social price of illegal immigrants here in the U.S. is very high. We also know that our prisons are teeming with illegals.

The American government is committing treason when it comes to the criminal neglect of one of it's primary functions: Protecting it's citizenry from hostile foreign invaders.

Every day, illegal aliens murder 12 American citizens! That's 4,380 per year, and a total of 21,900 since September 11th.

By the way, the "Vietnam-esque quagmire" that the Dems like to screech about over the term of the Iraq war rests (as of this week) at 2,863, with an additional 289 reported in from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan.

If only the government put as much attention to protecting us against these marauders as they do against the Islamic terrorists!

But the killing doesn't stop with outright homicide... Rep. Steve King of Iowa also estimates that about 13 Americans are killed every day by illegal alien drunk drivers. That's an additional 23,725 deaths.

That brings the annual death toll to 9,125, with a five-year total of 45,625.

What about the victims who don't die?

From WND:

King also reports eight American children are victims of sexual abuse by illegal aliens every day- a total of 2,920 annually.

Based on a one-year in-depth study, Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute of Atlanta estimates there are about 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States who have had an average of four victims each. She analyzed 1,500 cases from January 1999 through April 2006 that included serial rapes, serial murders, sexual homicides and child molestation committed by illegal immigrants.

As the number of illegal aliens in the U.S. increases, so does the number of American victims.

According to Edwin Rubenstien, president of ESR Research Economic Consultants, in Indianapolis in 1980, federal and state correctional facilities held fewer than 9,000 criminal aliens. But at the end of 2003, approximately 267,000 illegal aliens were incarcerated in all U.S. jails and prisons.

While the federal government doesn't track illegal alien murders, illegal alien rapes or illegal alien drunk driving deaths, it has studied illegal aliens incarcerated in U.S. prisons.

In April 2005, the Government Accountability Office released a report on a study of 55,322 illegal aliens incarcerated in federal, state, and local facilities during 2003. It found the following:

The 55,322 illegal aliens studied represented a total of 459,614 arrests- some eight arrests per illegal alien;

Their arrests represented a total of about 700,000 criminal offenses- some 13 offenses per illegal alien;

36 percent had been arrested at least five times before.

These numbers are mind-boggling! What possible reason do our politicians have in the face of suchbloodyddy onslaught against America to NOT secure our borders and start deportations?

I wonder if it would be possible for the victims of crimes perpetrated by illegal aliens to sue the Federal government for criminal neglect? If this number of lawsuits were brought against the government, would it prompt them to action, since they are obviously apathetic to the voter's wishes?

Ending Double Standards: Dignity Over Degradation

It's about time!

Black leaders have challenged entertainers to end the use of the "N" word in entertainment, including comedy, movies and music. They also appealed to the public to stop throwing it about in a casual fashion.

Jessi Jackson started the conference, which was basically good, with an excellent quote:

"We want to give our ancestors a present," Jackson said at a news conference. "Dignity over degradation."


Of course, he quickly started missing the point by asking for a boycott of the seventh season DVD box set of Seinfeld.

Hey, Jackson... How about boycotting ALL media wherein the "N" word is used, including by other black people? How about Jay-Z's latest album, for instance?

Someone who DID get it was Paul Mooney, who has used the "N" word numerous times in his comedy performances, but who has now pledged to never use it again after seeing Richard's on-stage explosion.

"He's my Dr. Phil," Mooney said. "He's cured me."

Brigitte Gabriel: A Clarion Voice!

Angel at Woman Honor Thyself has made a wonderful find:

An amazing story, isn't it?

Punishing The Victim: Sharia Law In Action.

Sharia law: A study in the victimization of victims.

A few months ago in Saudi Arabia, a teenage girl went to police to report being gang-raped by seven men. (Who were all devout Muslims, no doubt.) Was justice meted out? Sure, if by justice you mean the anti-woman, anti-victim justice that only Sharia law can issue with a straight face.

From the AP:

The story of the Girl of Qatif, as the alleged rape victim has been called by the media here, has triggered a rare debate about Saudi Arabia's legal system, in which judges have wide discretion in punishing a criminal, rules of evidence are shaky and sometimes no defense lawyers are present.

The result, critics say, are sentences left to the whim of judges. These include one in which a group of men got heavier sentences for harassing women than the men in the Girl of Qatif rape case or three men who were convicted of raping a boy. In another, a woman was ordered to divorce her husband against her will based on a demand by her relatives.

In the case of the Girl of Qatif, she was sentenced to 90 lashes for being alone in a car with a man to whom she was not married, a crime in this strictly segregated country, at the time that she was allegedly attacked and raped by a group of other men.

In the sleepy, Shiite village of al-Awwamiya on the outskirts of the eastern city of Qatif, the 19-year-old is struggling to forget the spring night that changed her life. An Associated Press reporter met her in a face-to-face interview. She spoke on condition of anonymity to protect her privacy; the AP does not identify rape victims unless they ask to be named.

Her hands tremble, her dark brown eyes are lifeless. Her sleep is interrupted by a replay of the events, which she describes in a barely audible whisper.

That night, she said, she had left home to retrieve her picture from a male high school student she used to know. She had just been married, but had not moved in with her husband and did not want her picture to remain with the student.

While the woman was in the car with the student, she said, two men intercepted them, got into the vehicle and drove the couple to a secluded area where the two were separated. She said she was raped by seven men, three of whom also allegedly raped her friend.

In a trial that ended in November, in which the prosecutor asked for the death penalty for the seven men, four of the men received between one and five years in prison plus 80 to 1,000 lashes, said the woman. Three others are awaiting sentencing. Neither the defendants nor the plaintiffs retained lawyers, as is common here.

"The big shock came when the judge sentenced me and the man to 90 lashes each," said the woman. The sentence was handed down as part of the rape trial. Lashes are usually spread over several days, dealt around 50 at a time.

The sentences have yet to be carried out, but the punishments ordered have caused an uproar.

Justice in Saudi Arabia is administered by a system of religious courts according to the kingdom's strict interpretation of Islamic Sharia law. Judges appointed by the king on the recommendation of the Supreme Judicial Council have complete discretion to set sentences, except in cases where Sharia outlines a punishment, such as capital crimes.

That means no two judges would likely hand down the same verdict for similar crimes. A rapist, for instance, could receive anywhere from a light or no sentence to death, depending on the judge.

Civilized societies should be screaming out against the human rights travesty that is Sharia law!

To think that organizations such as the "Islamic Thinker's Society" want to implement this degrading and barbaric system here in America is atrocious! So-called women's rights groups should lay down their political agendas and do what they were incepted to: Defend the rights of women worldwide against such travesties!

I for one, decry this! I reject it, I condemn it! Free women must never let themselves be cocooned in the burqa, and must use their voices to shout out against the perversions of Islamo-fascism while they still can!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving we will all celebrate, and ruminate on our blessings which are too numerous to count.

Remember that God does so much for all of us, and be thankful!

On the big day, don't forget that if you are the one responsible for baking the bird, and like me, are a questionable cook who relies on luck as her main ingredient, there is help... Butterball and Reynolds offer help via telephone from the pros!

As you can imagine, they field some doozies... Here are a few, courtesy of Snopes. (And I swear none of these calls were placed by yours truly!)

One of the more unusual questions handled by Butterball's Turkey Talk-Line (which the company has operated since 1981) comes from those who have mistaken a well-traveled joke for an actual recipe: They call to ask if they can pop popcorn in the turkey's cavity during the roasting process. (The joke's punch line is: "You know the turkey is done when the popcorn pops and blows the rear off the bird.") And no, you can't.

The hotline has heard from a gal who couldn't find the turkey she buried in a snowbank, a guy who wanted to know how to carve his bird with a chain saw, and a mechanic who worried about using motor oil as a baste.

Then there was the young mother who failed to notice her children playing near the oven-ready bird. The kids decided the turkey's cavity was a good place to park toy cars. Their mom didn't discover Ol' Tom was doubling as a garage until after the turkey had been roasted.

Another confused cook called the Butterball line after cleaning her turkey because she wanted to know how to get the metal pieces out. "Apparently," said one of the Butterball economists, "she had scrubbed her bird with a steel scouring pad." A West Coast woman who had taken anti-bacterial precautions too far called Butterball to find out how to get the bleach she'd used off her bird.

Butterball turkey experts still talk about the Kentucky woman who called in 1993 to ask how to get her dog out of her turkey. It seems the woman's Chihuahua had dived into the bird's cavity and become trapped there. The woman tried pulling the pooch and shaking the bird, all to no avail. A Butterball economist finally suggested the woman carefully cut the opening in the turkey wider to release the captive canine.

The Reynolds Wrap Turkey Tips Line (800-745-4000) took a query from a woman who wanted to know if she could cook her turkey by placing it in a Reynolds Oven Bag, putting it in the window in the back of her car, and letting the heat from the sun bake the turkey. (She was told that would be an uncontrolled heat source and was instructed to use an oven instead.)

The folks at Butterball have also dealt with cooks determined to roast turkeys on the back ledges of their cars. And they've had people call to ask if they could cook their holiday birds on radiators. Then there was the bride who had a small, apartment-size range and was worried the turkey would get larger as it cooked (similar to a loaf of bread rising) -she was fretting she wouldn't be able to get it out of the oven after it was done.

There are those whose problems are not how to get the turkey out of the oven, but when. Said Nancy Rodriguez, coordinator of the Butterball Turkey Talk-Line in 1985, "One lady in Arkansas had her five-pound turkey in the oven 24 hours: did we think it was done? Another caller wanted to know the best method for reattaching the thighs and drumsticks when they fall off. His 12-pound turkey had been in the oven since 8 a.m. the day before."

The self-cleaning option offered on a number of ranges has caused its share of Thanksgiving troubles when confused cooks have inadvertently started its cycle while their birds were in the oven. Others have different range-related questions, such as: "Your directions say to roast the turkey, but my oven says only bake or broil; how do I set it?"

Another myth is the infamous "Turkey will make you sleepy" tale. The tryptophan found in turkey is will not causdrowsinessss unless it is taken on an empty stomach and with no protein present... Something meat includes a lot of! Tryptophan is found in lots of common foods, like milk and beans. The food coma is caused instead by an influx of blood flow to the abdomen as the body attempts to digest the feast.

So, it isn't the turkey making you sleepy, it's the huuuuuge meal you just ate!

All that said, I would like to leave my bloggin' friends with this Thanksgiving wish:

The Only Pregnancy That Breeds Death

Angel over at Woman Honor Thyself has an absolutely must-read post about more Islamo-fascist depravity against women.

That's not a pregnant belly - that's a bomb.
The NYPD is warning business owners to be on the lookout for female jihadists who can hide explosives by faking pregnancy or sweet-talk their way past security officers.

Leave it to a Muslim terrorist to take something as beautiful and life-affirming as a pregnant mother, and turn it into a tool of death and horror.

Blue Dogs And Ineffective GOP'ers.

This cartoon sums it up, I think...

Gingerbread Brownshirts

An Oberlin, Ohio businessman who occasionally allows 'controversial' art to be displayed in his storefront window has nixed a gingerbread display featuring miniature Nazis.

Why a store front window would be a good place for controversial art, I couldn't fathom.

Last winter, the store owner, Charlie Palmer, allowed the same artist to display a "caroler-bashing" snowman and a little boy who was using his new Christmas gift chemistry set to brew crystal meth.

I don't know about you, but that sort of thing wouldn't quite put me in the Christmas mood.

***I saw a news video short this morning and tried to find a still picture of the Gingerbread Brownshirts to post, but found that NO ONE had an image of the so-called 'art.' ***

OJ's Book And Interview Slashed

OJ Simpson's recent proposed interview on Fox caused such a flurry of outrage that not only was it cancelled, but his entire book deal was as well! The publisher will recall all copies of the filthy rag, "If I did it," and have them destroyed.

Looks like my hubby will have some work... He's a document shredding guy!

From the AP:

"I and senior management agree with the American public that this was an ill-considered project," said Rupert Murdoch, News Corp. chairman. "We are sorry for any pain that this has caused the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson."

Noooooo! Really? I think calling it 'ill-considered' is a bit of an understatement!

Orgasm For Peace?

Can leftists get any more ridiculous?

Two San Francisco peace activists (I know, you're not surprised this is coming from California.) have called for a massive anti-war demonstration on December 22... But it isn't out on the street or in the city square.

It's in your bedroom.

From the AP:

The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace.

( I wonder if she's any relation to Cindy...)

"The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it," Reffell said Sunday. "Your mind is like a blank. It's like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change."

The couple have studied evolutionary psychology and believe that war is mainly an outgrowth of men trying to impress potential mates, a case of "my missile is bigger than your missile," as Reffell put it.

Uh-huh. Sounds like hippie logic to me. From their website, Global Orgasm, is an explanation of the "science" (I've shown you previous examples) behind the massive climax:

The Science

The Global Consciousness Project (, Princeton University, runs a network of Random Event Generators (REGs) around the world, which record changes in randomness during global events. The results show that human consciousness can be measured to have a global effect on matter and energy during widely-watched events such as 9/11 and the Indian Ocean tsunami. There have also been measurable results during mass meditations and prayers.

The Zero Point Field or Quantum Field surrounds and is part of everything in the universe. It can be affected by human consciousness, as can be seen when simple observation of a subatomic particle changes the particle's state.

We hope that a huge influx of physical, mental and spiritual energy with conscious peaceful intent will not only show up on Princeton REG's, but will have profound positive effects that will change the violent state of the human world.

So mass orgasms are now going to effect quantum physics? Bwaaahhhaaaahaaaaa! Ow, my sides!

Palestinians Use Human Shield Tactic...

Surprise... Not really.

Palestinian terrorists formed human shields to deter Israeli airstrikes of militant strongholds.

The "religion of peace" values life above all else, after all.

From USA Today, (all emphasis and red type mine.):

The standoff over the homes of the militants began late Saturday when Mohammed Baroud, a local leader of a violent group, the Popular Resistance Committees, was informed by the army that his house would be hit. The three-story building is home to 17 people from Baroud's clan. Another militant, from Hamas, also received a warning.

They were warned that the houses would be attacked by the Israeli Army in order to save innocent lives.

Instead of leaving, the two decided to stay in their homes and called in reinforcements. They were quickly joined by crowds of supporters, including dozens of armed men, who gathered on balconies, rooftops and in the streets outside. Local mosques and Palestinian TV and radio stations also mobilized supporters.

Wha... You mean that the very mosques of the "religion of peace" would support terrorists? I'm soooo shocked.

Baroud, involved in rocket attacks on Israel, said he and his fellow militants had planned the response a few days earlier, after another house was destroyed in a missile strike.

By Sunday afternoon, about two dozen women were milling around on Baroud's roof, shielded from the sun by green tarp. On the floor below them, about a dozen men were resting on mattresses.

Women and children (die) first, after all. And hey, who can say they don't care? After all, they did provide the ladies with some shade.

Baroud's mother, Umm Wael, said shifts had been organized in preparation for a long standoff. "Where should we go?" she said. "We will stay here or die in the house. Let them bring it down on our heads."

I don't have a problem with that...

Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas stopped by to show his support. "We are so proud of this national stand. It's the first step toward protecting our homes, the homes of our children," he said.

Is he kidding? They're using them as human frickin' shields!

The army said it called off the nighttime airstrikes because of the large crowds. It condemned what it said was a cynical exploitation "by the terrorists of uninvolved people as human shields."

Why, ladies and gentlemen, do we suffer these terrorists to live? They are beyond evil, devoid of any sort of honor or humanity. What is Israel to do if it is to survive? They are facing an enemy who exploits their civility...What choice do they have BUT to eradicate these vermin?

The Typical Leftist: Rooted In Denial

Jay over at The American Israeli Patriot had a fabulous post last week concerning the Democrats, Neville Chamerlain, and the similarities between Islamo-fascism today and Nazism in the 30's and 40's.

I invite you to read it; it really is good... And the comments. They were of course visited by a leftist who lives in a vortex of denial, where reality doesn't exist!

GOOD News From Iraq!

No thanks to the MSM, we have some good news coming out of Baghdad:

From The American Forces Press Service (all emphasis mine):

BAGHDAD — Iraqi Special Forces Soldiers and Police nabbed terror-cell leaders and members in raids in Baghdad over the last two days, U.S. officials reported.

Coalition forces have also killed 11 insurgents in three related incidents in Ramadi. In an incident near Haswah Tuesday, three insurgents were observed emplacing an improvised explosive device. Soldiers fired on the insurgents, killing two.

Iraqi Soldiers and Police nabbed terror-cell leaders and members in a Baghdad raid this week. Official Department of Defense photo.
In a raid Monday in the same area, special Iraqi Police Forces with Coalition advisers captured six insurgents believed to be responsible for car-bomb attacks against Iraqi civilians and Security Forces. The insurgents are also allegedly responsible for criminal activities including extortion, murder, kidnapping and car theft in the Haswah and Baghdad areas. The insurgents also help finance other insurgent cells.

Monday evening, Coalition Forces engaged a small number of insurgents emplacing an improvised explosive device. Two insurgents died in the engagement. The three remaining insurgents returned to the emplacement site, and Coalition Forces fired one main-tank-gun round, killing all three insurgents.

Following an IED attack on a Coalition vehicle four hours later in the same area, four insurgents were killed after they attempted to take mission-essential equipment from the vehicle. Two of the insurgents were killed by small-arms fire, and two were killed with one main-tank-gun round. The incident occurred during curfew hours.

Nine additional suspects were detained by Iraqi Forces during the raid, and several assault rifles were confiscated. Iraqi Forces entered a mosque compound while conducting the operation but did not enter the mosque. Coalition Forces did not enter the mosque compound or the mosque.

Elsewhere, U.S. Army soldiers detained three suspected terrorists in Baghdad’s Doura neighborhood around 5:45 a.m. Monday. The soldiers, from 4th Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, responded to a rocket attack and saw two suspects fleeing the scene. The suspects attempted to evade the patrol, but were unsuccessful. Patrol members secured the suspects for further questioning.

In a Sunday raid in Arab A’ Jabur, special Iraqi Security Forces with Coalition advisers captured four members of an insurgent cell believed to be responsible for murders, kidnappings and bomb attacks that have killed and injured Iraqi civilians and Iraqi Police Forces.

The insurgents were also allegedly responsible for taking over Iraqi civilian houses in the area to use for expanding their network, causing families to be displaced.

No Iraqi Forces or civilians or coalition forces were killed during these incidents.

Benjamin Netanyahu To Appear On Glenn Beck's TV Show

This post to remain at the top until Friday night... Please scroll down for new entries.

Former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will appear on Glenn Beck's television show Friday night at 7 & 9 pm EST, on the Headline News channel.

After appearing for four minutes on Exposed Wednesday night, Glenn told Netanyahu that he was embarrassed to only be able to afford the Prime Minister such a short time, and asked him back for the full hour. Netanyahu agreed.

It should make for some interesting television... Tune in if you can!

Gay Animal Display? That's Faaaabulous!

Here's the latest load of crap, brought to you by liberal science... A Gay Animal Museum display in Oslo.

Now, keep in mind I don't have a degree Zoology or anything of the like, but I would propose that animals do not posses the mental capacity to choose to be homosexual for pleasure's sake, rather, that the urge to mate is so strong that they do it however they can. I doubt very much they have the ability to realize that one particular 'relation' will bring about offspring, but another will not.

Minimum Wage Hike? You Knew It Was Comin'!

Get ready to take a $2.10 an hour pay cut... The Dems are getting ready to try and push a minimum wage hike through the Congress, taking it from $5.15 to $7.25 per hour.

If you're a working stiff who makes more than the minimum wage, are you getting a $2.10 per hour raise? I don't think so...

"Inner Struggle"... Not So Much.

We haven't been hearing much about Darfur lately.

Is this the typical negligence of the media?

While the genocide continues, Kofi Annan is busy wasting time by calling yet another useless UN meeting to "look at new ways to try to solve the crisis in Darfur."

Up for discussion: The refusal of Sudan to allow a UN force to replace the African Union's force, which is under-manned and under-funded, and whose mandate expires in a mere six weeks!

Over the last three years, the death toll has reached nearly a quarter of a million people, and displaced two million... But it's not JIHAD, is it?


The UN has agreed to augment the 'peacekeeping' force in Darfur, increasing the number of troops from about 7,000 to 27,000.

The Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is refusing to allow them to deploy, calling the troops "neocolonialists." (Whatever that means...) And hey, they're doing such a great job with that jihad, it'd be a shame to interrupt them.

Islamists Object To New Rape Laws

Pakistan is working to change the laws regarding rape, with the lower house of Parliament passing amendments that erase the death penalty for extramarital sex and revising the clause that make victims produce four witnesses to prove that they were raped.

Consentual extramarital sex is still a crime which is punishable by five years in prison, or a $165 fine... Maybe not perfect, but a step in the right direction, at least.

These amendments still have to be approved by the Senate, but (surprise) enraged Islamic fundamentalists want them thrown out altogether.

President Gen. Pervez Musharraf urged the Pakistani Senate to go ahead and approve the amendments, and decried the Fundamentalists claim that his government is acting against Islam.

From the AP:

"I have taken a firm decision to change these unjust rape laws as it was necessary to amend them to protect women," Musharraf said in a televised address to the nation.

The amendments were passed by a majority of the 342-member assembly, including Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, who said it marked "a historic day" for the country.

"Nothing is against Islam in this bill," Aziz said, adding that the amendments were made in consultation with Islamic scholars, lawmakers and human rights activists.

Pro-Islamic lawmakers stormed out of the National Assembly Wednesday in protest of the new legislation, known as the Protection of Women Bill.
"We reject it," Maulana Fazlur Rahman, a top Islamist opposition leader, told reporters after the vote, which he described as a "dark day" in Pakistan's parliamentary history.

Rahman and other Islamists vowed to devise a strategy to block Senate passage of the bill. Islamic political groups have previously staged mass rallies to denounce moves by the military-led government deemed contrary to Islam.

Oh, are any of us surprised that devout Islamo-fascists wouldn't want women to be protected?

Ali Dayan Hasan, a South Asia researcher for Human Rights Watch, said the Pakistani government had "failed to remove provisions criminalizing adultery" but had provided "partial relief" by repealing the death sentence.

"The Pakistani government remains in violation of its international obligations on ending discrimination against women," Hasan said.

This action to partially repeal the 1979 Pakistani rape law is most likely in response to international and local outcry to the gang-rape of Mukhtar Mai, which some of you may recall, who was sentanced to be gang-raped for her 13-year-old BROTHER's affair with a woman who was "outside his caste."

I Beseech Thee!

I don't know why, but I just find this to be hilarious!

Tuesday, November 14, 2006


Well, today is going to be pretty hectic, so I won't be able to make the usual rounds until tomorrow, most likely.

Our water main has broken between our house and the meter, (homeowner's insurance won't cover it) and I've got a guy coming to start marking and digging the yard before the ground is frozen.

My hubby dabbled in the computer's music library, and messed up the playlists, ect, so I've got to repair it, and it' a bit extensive.


See ya' later!

Elton John: Ban ALL RELIGION.

Elton John wants to ban all religion due to it's lack of compassion:

"I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people. From my point of view, I would ban religion completely," he was quoted as saying.

"Organized religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into really hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate."

I would submit, Elton, that not all religions are without compassion. Sure, you've probably had some bad experiences, but if you were to meet a parishioner from my denomination, he would likely gently give you a verbal invite to church and stress John 3:16 to you, but if you didn't want to hear that message, he would wish you well and be on his way.

Islam, however... Yeah, they would cut your head off for being gay. Maybe we should just ban them... But that wouldn't be compassionate, would it?

Slavery in America?

Can we please, please secure our borders?

From the above link:

At the age of 13, they say, she was smuggled into the U.S. from Oaxaca, Mexico, the first leg of a horrific journey that led her to a Harding Place area apartment. There she was beaten, raped and forced into a life of prostitution — an ordeal requiring her to have sex with as many as 40 men a day.

Investigators will be as aggressive as possible to stop the trafficking, Jordon said.

"It's very new for us to have on our radar in Tennessee, but" sex trafficking is "not a new thing," said Amber Beckham, coordinator for World Relief's Network of Emergency Trafficking Services.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I see this as slavery on American land! Why will we not do what it takes to stop this atrocity? Even forgetting the imminent threat posed economically, socially and ilieuue of security, THIS is reason enough to build a fence along the border, and make such harsh, draconian punishments against employers that dare to hire illegals that they dare not come here.

U.S. Threatened With Terror Attacks

This ought to make you feel good...

Four terror groups, including the Palestinian Authority's Fatah party have announce that they will officially target America for "attacking Muslim land" in Israel, Iraq and Afghanistan, and for providing support to their avowed enemies, the Israeli Defense Forces.

From WorldNetDaily:

"We call upon all mujahedeen in Palestine and around the world to start hitting Americans without mercy. The Americans are destroying Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan and are bombarding our Muslim land," read a statement signed by Fatah's Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the Popular Resistance Committees, the Fatah-affiliated Abu Rish Brigades, and a new group calling itself the Brigades of the Believers.

Uh-oh... It must be about time to cut off all of that foreign aid money. Maybe not being able to pay their bills with our money will dissuade them from this latest round of threats.

"The Americans seem not to understand any language but that of blood and violence. We say the Americans have an artificial culture. It is a country that doesn't respect the blood of innocents. Americans only take into consideration the blood of the Jews,"

Well there's a sterling example of hypocrisy, wouldn't you say? It would be laughable if it weren't serious!

Meanwhile, last week Palestinian terrorists fired Qassam rockets into Jewish neighborhoods, and when the IDF responded to the missile fire in turn, one of their rockets misfired into a Palestinian population a mere third of a mile from the firing zone, killing 19.

Did Ehud Olmert say, (As I would've.) "too bad. Stop using civilian areas as staging zones, and stop attacking us if you don't like it!"?


Prime Minister Ehud Olmert apologized for the Palestinian deaths and called for immediate peace talks with Abbas, stating the Palestinian leader "will be surprised at how far I am willing to go."

Olmert said he is willing to free "many, many Palestinian prisoners."

More capitulation, huh? Hey, keep it up, it's BOUND to work sooner or later... *cough*

But hey, Israel didn't do it alone, apparently:

Abu Abir's comments followed a statement last week by Hamas also blaming the U.S. for Palestinian deaths. The statement warned of upcoming Hamas attacks against the U.S. and urged Arabs and Muslims to "teach the American enemy merciless lessons they will not forget."

Aren't you glad that Pelosi is going to be the new Speaker?

Extremely Rare Stamp Used To Mail Anonymous Absentee Ballot

An absentee ballot in Florida was mailed with a rare stamp that could bring as much as a half a million dollars at auction. Unfortunately, the stamp cannot be returned to the unwitting owner because they failed to identify themselves on the ballot, which also invalidated their vote!

The stamp, which was a 1918 inverted Jenny which depicted a biplane accidentally printed upside down, was found in Ft. Lauderdale by John Rodstom, a member of the county's elections Canvassing Board.

The ballot was in a large envelope with the 1918 stamp, along with two stamps from the 1930's, and another dating back to WWII.

From al-Reuters:
"I thought, 'Oh my God, I know that stamp, I've seen that stamp before,"' said Rodstrom, 54, who dabbled in stamp collecting as a boy. "I'd forgotten the name. I just remembered there was a stamp with an upside-down biplane on it and that it was a very rare, rare stamp."

Rodstrom said he did not examine the envelope's postmark, but it had no return address and the ballot was disqualified because it gave no clue as to the identity of the voter.

"It's now government property," he said.

A postmark on a stamp usually would hurt its value but Rodstrom said the story behind this one -- plus the fact that it is joined by other old stamps on the envelope -- might actually increase its worth.

Rodstrom said he doubted the stamp would ever be handed over to someone claiming to have mailed it inadvertently.

"It would be hard to prove, I guess you would have to say it was a person who had Alzheimer's," he said.

Can you imagine that? Alzheimer's is a such a cruel disease; to slowly loose the capacity of your mind... You forget to mark the envelope, the ballot, to buy new stamps, ect., but you can remember where you put a bunch of old stamps from the 40's and earlier?

Watch Out For Those Bell Ringers!

Alien Threat

Forget the Islamo-fascists... We could be attacked by aliens at any moment, and we aren't prepared!

During his time as head of the Ministry of Defence UFO project, Nick Pope was persuaded into believing that other lifeforms may visit Earth and, more specifically, Britain.
His concern is that "highly credible" sightings are simply dismissed.
And he complains that the project he once ran is now "virtually closed" down, leaving the country "wide open" to aliens.
Mr Pope decided to speak out about his worries after resigning from his post at the Directorate of Defence Security at the MoD this week.
"The consequences of getting this one wrong could be huge," he said.

Ladies and Gentlemen, what is this newly elected Congress going to do to protect us from this imminent threat? (Other than give the Brits a swirly! LOL!)

What The...?

Every year at about this time, it happens. An inundation of cheesy catalogs urging me to start buying chintzy gifts for my relatives for Christmas. Oh, I mean the 'winter holiday.'

After all, we may not be able to say Christmas in public, lest we offend someone, but we're sure as heck expected to spend, spend, spend for it!

Back to the subject at hand. Usually, I grab the catalogue out of the mailbox, and thumb through it on the way to the garbage can, even though I have no intention of buying anything from it.

Before I made it to the can today, this caught my eye:

Isn't that strange? Talk about brining a gun to a knife fight!

Spanking: Deserved!

OK, it's Thursday, November 9th, and I got this in the mail today.

Click to enlarge.

This is a postcard from the GOP urging me to vote for the more moral Mike DeWine over Sherrod Brown for the Senate.

I would usually say 'better late than never,' but in this case, never would have been better.

Boo-Hoo... The Eurotrash And Terrorists Didn't Like Us.

H/T to GPB Insider Payallin for this graphic.

According to the Associated Press, this November was an "electoral rebuke" for President Bush and is being celebrated throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

Is anyone else getting a bad feeling in the pit of their stomach?

Excerpted from (all emphasis and red type mine):

On Iraq, some worried that Democrats will force a too-rapid retreat, leaving the country and the region in chaos. Others said they doubted the congressional turnover would have a dramatic impact on Iraq policy any time soon, largely because the Democrats have yet to define the course they want to take.

What? You mean the Dems didn't define their strategy as part of their platform before elections? HAHAHAHA!

But from Paris to Pakistan, politicians, analysts and ordinary citizens said Wednesday they hoped the Democratic takeover of both Houses of Congress would force Bush to adopt a more conciliatory approach to global crises, and teach a president many see as a "cowboy" a lesson in humility.

In an extraordinary joint statement, more than 200 Socialist members of the European Parliament hailed the American election results as "the beginning of the end of a six-year nightmare for the world."

Oh, well NOW I'm relieved; the frickin' socialists like us now.

I wonder what nightmare they would be referring to? All the foreign aid we give other countries? Or that we supply and fund most of the U.N.? Or that we just enforced some of the multitudes of toothless resolutions they passed?

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has consistently railed against the Bush administration, called the election "a reprisal vote."

Ladies and Gentlemen, Hugo Chavez is happy about the Dems being in power. I hope they're listening to this, because Chavez obviously has them pegged for someone I hope they are not.

In Paris, American expatriates and French citizens alike packed the city's main American haunts to watch results overnight and early Wednesday, with some standing to cheer or boo as vote tabulations came in.

One Frenchman, 53-year-old teacher Jean-Pierre Charpemtrat, said it was about time U.S. voters figured out what much of the rest of the world already knew.

That we should start capitulating to Muslim terrorists? I wonder how many cops and buses have been ambushed in Paris this week...

"Americans are realizing that you can't found the politics of a country on patriotic passion and reflexes," he said. "You can't fool everybody all the time _ and I think that's what Bush and his administration are learning today."

That's right; NO policy based on good, old-fashioned patriotism. You have to be apathetic and self-loathing to fit into 'western culture' nowadays.

Bush is deeply unpopular in many countries, with particularly intense opposition to the war in Iraq, the U.S. terror holding facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and allegations of Washington-sanctioned interrogation methods that some equate with torture.

Those prayer rugs and copies of the Koran we provided is rough treatment, all right. As well as the average weight gain of between 20-50 pounds that most prisoners at Gitmo put on, not to mention the free, high-quality medical care.

Many said they thought the big gains by Democrats signaled the beginning of the end of Bush's tenure.

In Copenhagen, Denmark, Jens Langfeldt, 35, said he didn't know much about the midterm elections but was opposed to Bush, referring to the president as "that cowboy."

So the AP basically interviewed an uninformed, mincing piece of Eurotrash and published his inane comment.

I'd take a "cowboy" over that guy any day.

In Sri Lanka, some said they hoped the rebuke would force Bush to abandon a unilateral approach to global issues.

"The Americans have made it clear that current American policy should change in dealing with the world, from a confrontational approach, to a more consensus-based and bridge-building approach," said Jehan Perera, a political analyst. The Democratic win means "there will be more control and restraint" over U.S. foreign policy.

Is that like the "global test" that Kerry wanted us to pass? In my view, a lack of a still-smoldering hole in the ground in the Middle East is a testament to our "control and restraint."

Passions were even higher in Pakistan, where Bush is deeply unpopular despite billions in aid and support for President Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

One opposition lawmaker, Hafiz Hussain Ahmed, said he welcomed the election result, but was hoping for more. Bush "deserves to be removed, put on trial and given a Saddam-like death sentence," he said.

Yeah, we should put that SOB Bush to death for murdering all of his political opponents... No... Well, maybe we should execute him for that time he gassed an entire... No, that never happened either...

Well, hell. Let's just put him to death, anyway.

But while the result clearly produced more jubilation than jitters, there were also some deep concerns.

In Denmark, Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen told broadcaster TV2 he hoped the president and the new Congress would find "common ground on questions about Iraq and Afghanistan."

"The world needs a vigorous U.S.A.," Fogh Rasmussen said.

That's the bottom line: The U.S. keeps the rest of the world from dissolving into petty infighting and all out war, both economically and militarily.

There was also some concern that Democrats, who have a reputation for being more protective of U.S. jobs going overseas, will make it harder to achieve a global free trade accord. And in China, some feared the resurgence of the Democrats would increase tension over human rights and trade and labor issues. China's surging economy has a massive trade surplus with the United States.

"The Democratic Party ... will protect the interests of small and medium American enterprises and labor and that could produce an impact on China-U.S. trade relations," Zhang Guoqing of the state-run Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said in a report on, one of China's most popular Internet portals.

You can kiss that goodbye, China. After the Dems get done restricting your trading ability, they'll tax the working man to the point that he will no longer be able to afford to buy anything you export, anyway.

The prospect of a sudden change in American foreign policy could also be troubling to U.S. allies such as Britain, Japan and Australia, which have thrown their support behind the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

Asked whether the resignation of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld signaled a new direction in the war that has claimed the lives of more than 2,800 U.S. troops, Bush said, "Well, there's certainly going to be new leadership at the Pentagon."

Cindy Sheehan displays the utmost grace and decorum
outside the White House on Wednesday.

"The problem for Arabs now is, an American withdrawal (from Iraq) could be a security disaster for the entire region," said Mustafa Alani, an Iraqi analyst for the Gulf Research Center in Dubai. He said the Middle East could be left to cope with a disintegrating Iraq mired in civil war, with refugees fleeing a failed state that could become an incubator for terrorism.

He's absolutely right.

Look, I don't want to be all doom and gloom. I really, really don't. I'm hoping that the Democratic Congress can be reasonable and work to improve America.

But I fear that, just like the GOP, they will soon become engorged on their new power and start doing what is best for the party, rather than the country.

We shall see...
