'Reverend' Wright's Successor.

Uh-oh. It seems there's more bigotry coming from Barack Obama's church... This time by a self-hating priest. This sort of thing seems to go on quite regularly at Obama's church, at least when he's not around.

Funny how everyone supposedly behaves themselves while he's about. Riiiiight.





I'm not sure why a supposed Catholic Priest is preaching at Obama's hateful church, or why the guy is so out of breath.

I'm also dumbfounded at the ugliness of the preaching; the cursing and in Wright's case cursing and the sexual innuendo. I can't imagine such vile content coming from a pulpit.

It looks like Obama has some more 'splainin' to do.

Memorial Day Pt.2

I finally found my keys and got my camera out of the car, so here are the Memorial Day pics I shot on Sunday!

Tonight, Dave is away on business and the children are asleep. It's just little 'ol me here, so I snapped a quick shot of our Dane, Fortune, dutifully guarding the couch. Notice one of our cats, Jack, supervising.


Listen Up, Feminazis!


If you could pull yourselves off the abortion table for a few moments, someone out there could use your help! 


Tehran, 27 May (AKI) - A top
 Iranian cleric from the northeast, Ayatollah Ahmad Elmalhoda, has reportedly called feminists "whores
 and foreign spies". 

"These whores, clutching a piece of paper in their hands to gather signatures, are working for foreign powers and want to destabilise the Islamic Republic," said Elmalhoda.
He is the highly influential prayer leader in the northeastern holy Shia c
ity of Mashad.

Elmalhoda has called on the government to "intervene
 decisively against these whores, because it is improper to leave them to act with impunity."
A few weeks ago, Elmalhoda said women who do not wear
 the Islamic veil as instructed "turned men into animals."

Verbal attacks against
 feminists in Iran are also being accompanied by a vast judicial offensive. 
Eight feminists involved in a campaign to gather "a
 million signatures in favour of equality" were recently given jail terms of various lengths and sentenced to public floggings.
The Iranian authorities have in the last two weeks censured twelve websites close to the
 feminist movement.

Elmalhoda, YOU LITTLE TROLL!!! A "whore" is a
 woman who sells sex for money. These women simply want to be able to have some measure of control over
 their own lives.

The men who don't like
 seeing their women live as potato-sack covered chattel don't fare much better in
 Iran: 

TEHRAN (AFP) - A male defender of the feminist cause in Iran has been sentenced to a year in prison, the moderate Kargozaran newspaper reported on Monday.

Amir Yaqoubali is a supporter of the "One Million Signatures" petition campaign launched in June 2006. According to a feminist website, he was arrested as he collected signatures.

But don't worry, feminazis. I'm sure they'll work all that out for themselves...You just worry about getting Mr. "Audacity of Hope" elected.

Memorial Day

First and foremost, I want to honor all of my blogging buddies who've served, and all other men and women who have answered the call to protect our nation!

Sorry about the belated wishes!

Yesterday was a wonderful Memorial Day. The school band and local girl and boy scouts put on a nice parade which ended in the cemetery. There was a very lovely sermon given to honor our soldiers, a prayer, and taps played by the high school marching band. 

I  have a few pics, but the camera is in the car and Dave's at work with the keys. I can't find my set... 

After that, we splurged with the gas and headed out to the flea market. The weather was wonderful, there was pie and ice cream, and I found a bumper sticker that says, "My brother is in the Army" next to the army logo. (I just heard that little bro is due to graduate basic on July 18th. We're going to make every effort to cross the states between us and be there! )


Dave put it on the car and we were on our way home for pizza! 

Very cool day!

Get Ready to be "Nationalized."

Check out what "this liberal" is all about: 





From her own mouth!!! Notice how fast Comrade Waters put the breaks on when she realized what she'd said?

 Why are we sitting around while this decrepit, evil Congress tries to turn us into a stinking communist hole?!?

Ladies and gentlemen, we've traded one tyrant 3,000 miles away for 3,000 tyrants one mile away.




Get The Sound

Edge put up a playlist of wonderful movie themes yesterday, and I thought the player itself was pretty neat, so I went to the site and put together a bit of the stuff I play around the house.

Of course, there were a few things I couldn't find and probably quite a few I just didn't think of.

Got any faves?

Which One Deserves Unforgiving Outrage?

From The Religion of Peace site:

Citizens! Get The People's Thermostat!

That's right, Comrades! Barack Obama has solved global warming and improved our international image with this, The People's Thermostat.

Personally, I'd rather keep my house whatever temperature I please, thank you anyway, Barry. Sweetie.

When It Rains...

...It pours. In this case, it pours frigid water.

Our water heater broke sometime last night after the kids got their baths, so Dave and I awoke to an icy shower and another 'emergency.' 

Since the water heater must be replaced immediately, we must decide whether to go with another electric tank heater, or a tankless. Both cost about the same, so hassle factor on the installation will play a role, I suppose.

What say you all? 

On another topic, I admit to actually wanting to see the new Indiana Jones movie this week. 

I know, I know. Ford is a flaming lefty who's pushing seventy, but it's Indiana Jones.

The DNC has their own version of the flick coming out, or so I hear:

If it Isn't One Thing...

...It's another. 

I was going to blog after doing my housework this morning. 

I found this weird story, and this one which really, really pisses me off.

But, during one of my chores I made an unpleasant discovery: fleas.

Yes, I was combing Fortune and found fleas. I also found them on our little dog, Jessi, so it's off to the groomer's for an impromptu flea bath, and to the vet's for the Frontline stuff.

I didn't find any on the cats, but I'll likely pick up some Frontline for them as well. Better safe than sorry!

Amazingly, neither of the dogs were scratching or acting funny. No bites on the people, either, though I will probably pick up some of that stuff to spray into the carpet, which is fortunately just the utility stuff and vacuums up easily.

*sigh*

One the brighter side, Dave did a LOT of yard work this weekend, planting beautiful purple-pink bushes in our previously dirt-bare flower beds, and mulching. He also put out some stainless solar lights. It's very lovely. I'll have to take a pic later today, probably after I finish my belated blog rounds!

Caught impromptu, our Dane, Fortune and our needle-eating cat Jack enjoying a relaxing moment.

Mutual grooming occurred.

Wacky Muslim Wednesday

The death toll ticker on my sidebar got a big boost yesterday, thanks to Indian Muslim adherents of the 'religion of peace' murdering 80 or so Hindus. 



Not to worry, though. Hurting that little girl was only a part of "liberating Muslim-dominated areas of India," according to the terror group Lashkar-e-Toiba.

Apparently, these asshats and OBL see Hindus to be equally as baaaaaad as Zionists.

Let's move on with the roundup, shall we? 

What else is bad that must be declared war on? 

Condoms.

Kenyan Islamic clerics are going to start preaching against the use of condoms to prevent the spread of HIV.




Abdi Welli, a taxi driver in Garissa, told IRIN/PlusNews he agreed with the clerics that condoms should be banned. He believed the widespread myth that condoms and contraceptives were laced with the HI virus. "We know the condoms are not safe ... if you want to contract the virus that causes AIDS, then use [a condom]," he said. "After all, we have heard in the past that the Western world is using the condom to eliminate Africans, and Muslims in particular." 

Oh, it gets better: 

 

The leaders expressed their view that the best way for the youth to avoid HIV was through the observance of Islamic teachings such as fasting, regular prayer and shunning extramarital affairs. They advised men to avoid looking at women, who should dress modestly.

Do you know who else should avoid looking at women? Their husbands:

A 50-year-old Saudi woman asked for divorce after her husband lifted her face veil while she was sleeping, local press reported.

For 30 years, the wife said she never showed her face to her husband in conformity with the tradition of her native village near the south western Saudi city of Khamis Mushayt.

"After all these years, he tries to commit such a big mistake," the wife told Saudi newspaper Al-Riyadh, after she left the house in total disbelief.

She said the husband apologized and promised never to do it again. 

This is not the first case of husbands who have not seen their wives' faces in decades.

In the past Al Arabiya has reported the case of Ali al-Qahtani, whose wife had been wearing the face veil for the entire ten years of their marrage. When he tried to take it off, she threatened to leave and only decided to stay after he swore never to try again.

Hassan Al-Atibi threatened to marry another woman if his wife didn't show him her face. The woman nominated one of her friends who doesn't observe this tradition as a possible new wife for him, saying this would be better than her showing her face.

And neither the husband or children of Om Rabea al-Gahdaray, 70, have ever seen her face. Al-Gahdaray says it is a family tradition, also followed by mother and sisters, which her husband accepted and never tried to change. 

When asked how she could have kids without her husband ever seeing her face, she replied: "Marriage is about love, not faces."

Oh, sure. I guess you go a little crazy after centuries of misogyny. 

And last but not least, we can't let a Islamist roundup go by without a little propaganda against the Joooooos.

It seems that another poor, dead Paly who died because the Jooooos wouldn't let him into Israel to be treated by Jooooos at a Joooooish hospital is alive after all:

International media often have published claims that Israel's refusal to allow Arabs to enter Israel for medical care without a thorough security check has caused several deaths, many of which were later found to be falsely reported. 

The latest case involves Mohammed al-Harrani whose son said he died while waiting for a permit to enter Israel. Israeli security officials stated they wanted to question Al-Harrani, who is suspected of being involved with terrorist activities. Before he was interrogated, his son told the Physicians for Human Rights group, "The sick man could not withstand the wait for the permit."

The following day, the doctors' group discovered the man was alive.


It's a miracle! Bwaahaahaaaa!!!

Let's See Your Resume...

(Click to enlarge.)

Kind of says it all, huh? 

The Remorse (or lack thereof) of the 'Religion of Peace.

You probably recall the 'honorcide' of a young teen a couple of weeks ago. For the crime of having a crush on a British soldier, 17-year-old Rand Abdel-Qader was brutally murdered by her father.

Well, two weeks later this faithful adherent to the 'religion of peace' is a free and unrepentant man. What a surprise.

From this source, all emphasis mine:

For Abdel-Qader Ali there is only one regret: that he did not kill his daughter at birth. 'If I had realised then what she would become, I would have killed her the instant her mother delivered her,' he said with no trace of remorse.

Two weeks after The Observer revealed the shocking story of Rand Abdel-Qader, 17, murdered because of her infatuation with a British soldier in Basra, southern Iraq, her father is defiant. Sitting in the front garden of his well-kept home in the city's Al-Fursi district, he remains a free man, despite having stamped on, suffocated and then stabbed his student daughter to death.

Abdel-Qader, 46, a government employee, was initially arrested but released after two hours. Astonishingly, he said, police congratulated him on what he had done. 'They are men and know what honour is,' he said.


Oh, sure. They know how honorable it is to beat a defenseless girl to death, because they are SO HONORABLE. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was her first youthful infatuation and it would be her last. She died on 16 March after her father discovered she had been seen in public talking to Paul, considered to be the enemy, the invader and a Christian. Though her horrified mother, Leila Hussein, called Rand's two brothers, Hassan, 23, and Haydar, 21, to restrain Abdel-Qader as he choked her with his foot on her throat, they joined in. Her shrouded corpse was then tossed into a makeshift grave without ceremony as her uncles spat on it in disgust.

'Death was the least she deserved,' (Remember, she spoke with a British soldier. That's it.) said Abdel-Qader. 'I don't regret it. I had the support of all my friends who are fathers, like me, and know what she did was unacceptable to any Muslim that honours his religion,' he said.


Religion of peace my ass. Extremist my ass. Death, violence and misogyny is an integral part of Islam.


Sitting on a chair by his front door and surrounded by the gerberas and white daisies he had planted in the family garden, Abel-Qader attempted to justify his actions.

'I don't have a daughter now, and I prefer to say that I never had one. That girl humiliated me in front of my family and friends. Speaking with a foreign solider, she lost what is the most precious thing for any woman. 'People from western countries might be shocked, but our girls are not like their daughters that can sleep with any man they want and sometimes even get pregnant without marrying. Our girls should respect their religion, their family and their bodies.


That's right. They'd damn well better 'respect their religion', or their father/husband/brother/uncle will kill them.


'I have only two boys from now on. That girl was a mistake in my life. I know God is blessing me for what I did,' he said, his voice swelling with pride. 'My sons are by my side, and they were men enough to help me finish the life of someone who just brought shame to ours.'

Abdel-Qader, a Shia, says he was released from the police station 'because everyone knows that honour killings sometimes are impossible not to commit'. Chillingly, he said: 'The officers were by my side during all the time I was there, congratulating me on what I had done.' It's a statement that, if true, provides an insight into how vast the gulf remains between cultures in Iraq and between the Basra police the British army that trains them.

Sources have indicated that Abdel-Qader, who works in the health department, has been asked to leave because of the bad publicity, yet he will continue to draw a salary.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Homosexuality is punishable by death, a sentence Abdel-Qader approves of with a passion. 'I have alerted my two sons. They will have the same end [as Rand] if they become contaminated with any gay relationship. These crimes deserve death - death in the name of God,' he said.


I guess the gay sex is only OK once you get to allah's sky brothel and receive your 72 virgins and your 28 nubile boys. Up until then, allah hates the gays... Unless you're in Iran and there aren't any homosexuals.


He said his daughter's 'bad genes were passed on from her mother'. Rand's mother, 41, remains in hiding after divorcing her husband in the immediate aftermath of the killing, living in fear of retribution from his family. She also still bears the scars of the severe beating he inflicted on her, breaking her arm in the process, when she told him she was going. 'They cannot accept me leaving him. When I first left I went to a cousin's home, but every day they were delivering notes to my door saying I was a prostitute and deserved the same death as Rand,' she said.


Frankly, I'm amazed that he didn't honorcide the woman right there.


'She was killed by animals. Every night when go to bed I remember the face of Rand calling for help while her father and brothers ended her life,' she said, tears streaming down her face.

She was nervous, clearly terrified of being found, and her eyes constantly turned towards the window as she spoke. 'Rand told me about the soldier, but she swore it was just a friendship.

'She said she spoke with him because she was the only English speaker. I raised her in a religious manner and she never went out alone until she joined the university and then later when she was doing aid work.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The mother is now trying to raise enough money to escape abroad. 'I miss my two boys,' she said. 'But they have sent a message saying that I am wrong for defending Rand and that I should go back home and live like a blessed Muslim woman,' (Which is what, exactly? Quiet, fearful and submissive half-human property, or a dead woman?) said Leila, who is now volunteering with a local organisation campaigning for better protection for women in Basra.

One of those running the organisation, who did not want to be identified, said that Rand's case was similar to so many reported in Basra, with the only difference being she was in love with a foreigner, rather than an Iraqi.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


These sort of stories occur with amazing frequency, and one must assume that most honorcides in the Middle East are probably not accounted. After all, who cares about a woman?

I know I have asked this futile question before, but where the hell are the so-called women's rights activists? Could they pull themselves off the abortion table for five minutes and give a crap about women who are in real trouble around the world? Could they consider that there are worse problems out there for women aside from how long the queue is at 'Planned Parenthood'?

I'm filled with contempt and disgust for the whole lot of them. The Islamists, and the dhimmi politicians and so-called activists that turn a blind eye.

Pizza, Pizza!

OK, so I'm in a food mood of late.

If you like pizza (And who doesn't?) and have a Little Caesar's franchise near you, I recommend you go there and pick up a ready-made, yummy pizza for about $5.

That pizza you buy just might be going to support a veteran!






I found out about this from Glenn Beck's Real America segment on CNN Headline News, but could not find the video segment online. Oh, well.



I think I'll have a pepperoni pizza tonight, courtesy of Little Caesar's!

Stephen King is Jerk

I've never cared for Stephen King's novels. I find his writing is flat, his horror pedantic, cliche, and banal.

That said, I now can say I do not like Stephen King, period.



"I don't want to sound like an ad, a public service ad on TV, but the fact is if you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you don't, then you've got, the Army, Iraq, I don't know, something like that. It's, it's not as bright. So, that's my little commercial for that."




My younger brother told me this week that he's shipping out for the Army on the fourteenth of this month. 

He's going in to the Service to learn satellite communications. It's a good thing he won't need to do any reading for that job.

I mean, SatCom guys aren't nearly as smart as elitist asshat leftists like Stephen King.

The Sunny Side of Dhimmitude...


...Is that folks may
finally be getting sick of it!

Boris Johnson, the conservative candidate for Mayor of London won out over dhimmi asshat Ken Livingstion in his Muslim pandering suit:

From this source

The Conservative candidate's win over Ken Livingstone followed a calamitous showing for Labour at the local elections - the party's worst performance at the polls for 40 years.

Mr Johnson's landmark victory, a result that would have been almost unthinkable six months ago, was the most symbolic blow to Mr Brown's authority on a day that left the Prime Minister facing the gravest crisis of his leadership.

By taking City Hall, Mr Johnson becomes the first Tory politician to hold a senior role in British politics since the party was swept out of power in 1997. His win provided a significant boost to David Cameron's bid for victory at the next general election.

In the local elections, Labour lost more than 300 councillors and slumped to a humiliating third place behind the Liberal Democrats in the share of the vote – a full 20 points behind Mr Cameron's Conservatives.

There may be hope for the Brits yet...

Misogyny and Recidivism

More wacky fun from our favorite 'religion of peace' is the post du jour.

First, we have the misogyny, all emphasis mine

Following are excerpts from a public address delivered by Indian cleric Ashraf Mohamedy, which aired on Peace TV on April 22, 2008:DUBAI (Reuters) - A Kuwaiti man released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay in 2005 has carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq, his cousin told Al Arabiya television on Thursday.

A friend of Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi in Iraq informed his family that Abdullah carried out the attack in Mosul, his cousin Salem told the Dubai-based television channel.Ashraf Mohamedy: There are two twin sisters who are equally identical and equally good looking, and they are walking down the street. At the corner there is a hooligan waiting for a catch, waiting to tease someone. One of the sisters is putting on the Islamic hijab, that is, covering herself completely, except for the face and the hands up to the wrist, and the other sister is dressed in a miniskirt. Who is the hooligan going to tease – the sister in the hijab or the one in the miniskirt? Of course he will tease the sister in the miniskirt! (Yeah, what a totally plausible story. Sheesh.)

[...]

Allah has instructed us to follow the hijab, so that women can be saved from rape and molestation. (Because we all know that rape is about how a woman is dressed and not about violence and control, right?) In Islam, there is capital punishment for the rapist. (Except that you can't convict a man for rape under Sharia law. A woman's word is worth half a man's, and her defense must include multiple male witnesses she does not know that just stood around and watched the rape to testify to it.)Whenever we say this to non-Muslim brothers, they react by saying that Islam is a cruel law, that it is a barbaric law. But believe me, Islamic law gets results. (Yeah, if you are a barbarian.) We have asked a question to several people. We say that if someone, God forbid, rapes your sister, rapes your wife, rapes your daughter – and you are made the judge, and if the rapist is brought before you, you are meant to give punishment – what would you do? Most of the people said: "We will put him to death." Some went to the extent of saying that we will torture him to death. When it comes to your sisters and your daughters, you want to put the rapist to death. Then why do you have double standards when Islam is concerned? (Don't forget to "honor kill" the victim when you're done. Gotta tie up those loose ends.)

Western society, in the name of women's liberalization, has exploited the body of the woman, has degraded her soul, and has deprived her of her honor. They have converted women into mistresses, concubines, and society butterflies, who are mere tools in the hands of sex marketers and pleasure seekers. In America, according to statistics of the FBI, in 1990, the cases of rape were 1,750, and later on, 1,900. The Americans got a bit bolder. The latest statistics, of 1996, say that now the rate has gone up to 2,117 rapes taking place every day. (I'll give him that Western society is too sexualized, but I seriously doubt those statistics. I also just LOOOOVE how he portrays women as so damn stupid that every last one of us is a tool of sex-hungry men with no control over our own lives whatsoever. I also love how the men have no responsibility for their own actions. It's the woman's fault, never the guy's. SHE has the burden to control his behavior. Yeah. That makes total sense.)

If the Islamic Shari'a is applied in America (God forbid), if every man, whenever he sees a woman, would lower his gaze, if every woman is asked to cover herself completely, except for the face and hands up to the wrist, and if there is capital punishment for the rapist – will the rate of crime go up, remain the same, or come down in America? Of course it will come down! Islam gives dignity and protection to the women in Islam (Except that you are chattel and worth half a man, and are allowed to be beaten, raped, honor killed, ect...), and that is just the reason why Islam has prescribed the hijab. (Sure it is. Riiiiight.)

[...]

Another misconception among non-Muslim brothers and sisters is that Muslims are fundamentalists and terrorists. They say and allege that you are terrorists and fundamentalists. Let's analyze the meaning of fundamentalism. If a person wants to be a good doctor, then he should know, he should follow, and should practice the teachings of medicine. In other words, he should be a fundamentalist in the field of medicine. If a person wants to be a very good scientist, he should know, he should follow, and he should practice the teachings of science. In other words, he should be a fundamentalist in the field of science. Similarly, if a person wants to be a good mathematician, he should know, he should follow, and he should practice the teachings of mathematics. In other words, he should be fundamentalist in the field of mathematics. We cannot paint all fundamentalists with the same brush, for a fundamentalist robber causes harm to the society, and that is highly disagreed upon. That is highly irresponsible. But at the same time, a fundamentalist doctor causes good in society. He cures and he heals, and he is much desired by society. I am proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim, because I know, I follow, and I strive to practice the teachings of Islam. Every Muslim should be proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim. That is because none of the teachings of Islam causes any harm to society. On the contrary, it causes.... it gives benefits to society. On the basis of this knowledge, every Muslim should be proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim.

[...]

I would stress that every Muslim should be a terrorist. I repeat: Every Muslim should be a terrorist. A terrorist is a person who terrifies others, who terrorizes others. That is precisely the reason we have the police. As soon as the robber sees the policeman, he is terrified, he is terrorized. Similarly, the Muslims should terrorize the anti-social elements in society. He should terrorize the robber, the decoy, the rapist. I know that "terrorist" is taken as a concept of a person who terrorizes the common man. But we Muslims should be terrorists for the anti-social elements in society.


Unbelievable! Every Muslim should be a terrorist... And I don't buy for one minute that he meant against ideals instead of people. Even if he did, what a horrendous comparison! 


And now, here is the recidivism: 


DUBAI (Reuters) - A Kuwaiti man released from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay in 2005 has carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq, his cousin told Al Arabiya television on Thursday.

A friend of Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi in Iraq informed his family that Abdullah carried out the attack in Mosul, his cousin Salem told the Dubai-based television channel.


Yeah, let's close down Gitmo, Obama. Hillary. McCain. Those guys will just fade away and never harm a soul. Except for this one time, I'm sure.

An Engineer's Guide to Cats

Baby Tossing

My jaw hit the floor when I saw this video on the morning news today:




That wacky 'religion of peace'...
