Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my blogging buddies, for which I am grateful! 

I'll be making "the rounds" tomorrow, but for today I have a quick Thanksgiving classic for you all:

Ready for This?

Adding insult to injury:


President George W. Bush has granted pardons to 14 individuals and commuted the prison sentences of two others convicted of misdeeds ranging from drug offenses to tax evasion, from wildlife violations to bank embezzlement, The Associated Press learned Monday.

The new round of White House pardons are Bush's first since March and come less than two months before he will end his presidency. The crimes committed by those on the list also include offenses involving hazardous waste, food stamps, and the theft of government property...

On the latest pardon list were:

_Andrew Foster Harley of Falls Church, Va. Harley was convicted of wrongful use and distribution of marijuana and cocaine...

_Geneva Yvonne Hogg of Jacksonville, Fla., convicted of bank embezzlement. (Maybe the pardon came with a bailout, too!)...

_Robert Earl Mohon Jr. of Grant, Ala., who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

_Ronald Alan Mohrhoff of Los Angeles, who was convicted for unlawful use of a telephone in a narcotics felony...

Bush also commuted the prison sentences of John Edward Forte of North Brunswick, N.J., and James Russell Harris of Detroit, Mich. Both were convicted of cocaine offenses.


Great. So President Bush has unleashed a bunch of drug dealing buddies, a la the last days of President Clinton. I suppose the scumbags listed above have the connections to get their indulgence. 

Hey, asshat... How about doing something right and pardoning the political prisoners Ramos and Compean instead?

Nuts To You, Hitler!

'Cause apparently, you need some!

I wonder if he blamed the Jooooos for loosing a testicle? 

From this source

AN extraordinary account from a German army medic has finally confirmed what the world long suspected: Hitler only had one ball.

War veteran Johan Jambor made the revelation to a priest in the 1960s, who wrote it down.

The priest’s document has now come to light – 23 years after Johan’s death.

The war tyrant’s medical condition has been mocked for years in a British song.

The lyrics are: “Hitler has only got one ball, the other is in the Albert Hall. His mother, the dirty b****r, cut it off when he was small.’

Until now there has never been complete proof Hitler was monorchic – the medical term for having one testicle.

But the document tells how Johan saw the proof with his own eyes. In the account, he relives the horror of serving as an army medic in World War I.

He died aged 94 in 1985, but had told his secret to priest Franciszek Pawlar, who kept a note of their conversation.

Johan’s friend Blassius Hanczuch confirmed the priest’s account of how the medic saved Hitler’s life. He said: “In 1916 they had their hardest fight in the Battle of the Somme.

“For several hours, Johan and his friends picked up injured soldiers. He remembers Hitler.

“They called him the ‘Screamer’. He was very noisy. Hitler was screaming ‘help, help’.

“His abdomen and legs were all in blood. Hitler was injured in the abdomen and lost one testicle. His first question to the doctor was: ‘Will I be able to have children?’.”

Blassius said that when the Nazis swept to power Johan began to suffer nightmares and blame himself for saving Hitler.


I guess this is why the rest of the world was never "blessed" by a Hitler Jr.


HA!

Star Trek: WOW.

**Disclaimer**

I'm not an original Trek fan. That is my hubby's arena. NOTHING pisses me off more than original cast member cameos into other Trek series. I don't want it. No thanks. The only thing that makes Original Trek tolerable to me is Spock, and THAT'S IT.

I'm a TNG and primarily a DS9 fan. (Enterprise up until the lame-*ahem* Temporal Wars thing, and as far as I'm concerned Voyager is a Highlander Two... It never happened.)


It's cold tonight... Lows in the low 20's with hard wind chills... But my thoughts of Trek opening up in May will be keeping me warm! 

((((BTW... You "purist" nerds that whine down your nose about the "timeline" and continuity... STFU. This is gonna be an awesome flick, and after YEARS of dog Trek movies, don't we deserve one? Sit back and enjoy the ride. If you start to feel the urge to complain, think about how LAME the whole B-4 thing was and chill.))))

The Religion of Misogyny

What does a man do when it just isn't enough to "marry" and "consummate" with a pre-teen girl, all the while keeping her under a burlap sack and beating her if she looks at him wrong?

Why, you can have her blow herself up for Allah, of course!

From this source, all emphasis mine: 

It

isam Adwan, who is accused of grooming young and vulnerable women for bomb attacks, has told police in Baquba that so many 

others are following her lead that they will not be able to stop them.

Last week a suicide bomber who blew herself killing five Iraqi guards at a checkpoint was revealed by police to have been just 13 years old - making her the 

youngest such attacker so far in a spate of such bombings in the city, capital of the troubled Diyala province.

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


Captain Ahmed Jasim, a spokesman for the Baquba police, said that the 38-year-old had described how a group of women, mainly widows of terrorist "martyrs", who are grooming younger relatives and acquaintances for death.

"She said she is just one of many mothers who do the same job," he said. "And there are many girls who are willing to die. The mothers tell them that they will go to heaven, where they will sit by rivers of honey and have lunch with the prophet Mohammad and live in comfort.

Now there's an incentive for blowing one's self up... Lunch with an insane pedophile. 

"The girls are the wives of al-Qaeda members, so their husbands tell them that their martyrdom would be glorious and the husbands too will automatically get to heaven as a result of their wives willingness to kill themselves in the name of religion."

That's right. Molest them until they hit puberty and then dispose of them, and get yourself a free ride to Allah's brothel in the sky, too. Sounds like a win-win situation, huh? 

Rania Ibrahim, a 15-year old who was captured at a checkpoint wearing a suicide vest in Diyala in August, is one of those pushed into terrorism in this way. She was a frustrated, poorly-educated teenager who had been sold into marriage with a terrorist operative. Umm Fatima, her husband's aunt, then cajoled her into attacking a police station.

"I left school at 11 and my mother spent the rest of the time trying to find a buyer to marry me," she said. "I wanted to be a doctor but my husband said he wanted me to go to paradise, where he would soon join me."

Her mother was finding a BUYER for her daughter! But Islam respects women, or so they say. Don't be a doctor, sweetie, be a homicide bomber. Now that's a career choice!

Oh, and I wouldn't hold my breath in paradise waiting for that kind, caring and respectful husband to join me... Just a gut feeling. 

But Rania, who claimed she was fed pills and alcohol before her attack, attracted the suspicions of police at the check-point. She was called forward and the police cut the belt from her body. Umm Fatima, who is believed to have held the remote electronic trigger for the device, was unable to explode the bomb.

That's right... Muslim cabbies cannot pick up disabled people with seeing eye dogs or persons carrying alcohol, but you can give it to a teenage girl before you murder her. 

Rania is now in prison in Baquba but her mother, Bassad Selman Mohana, lives in a dilapidated house near the centre of the once neat and prosperous central Iraqi city. She said she felt betrayed and deceived by her son-in-law, Mohammad Hassan, who was himself arrested a month after his young wife was taken into custody.

"My daughter is a good girl and I thought he was a good man," she said. "Around here, everyone makes price the first factor in determining who the girls marry. He deceived me, I did not know he was involved with al-Qaeda."

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

"When Muslim land is occupied by non-believers, jihad is mandatory for all Muslims, male and female," said Dr Hani al-Sibai, a London-based Islamist Sunni scholar. "Women are allowed to conduct jihad without the approval of parents or spouse."

Well, hoody-hoo. I guess Muslim women have some civil rights after all.

Global Cooling?

Look's like Al Gore's global warming racketeering profit might start to suffer a bit!

And here I was thinking global warming wasn't "just a perdiction" anymore. HA! 

From this source, all emphasis mine: 

Global warning: We are actually heading towards a new Ice Age, claim scientists

It has plagued scientists and politicians for decades, but scientists now say global warming is not the problem. 

We are actually heading for the next Ice Age, they claim.


AGAIN?!? You mean like how we were headed towards an ice age in the 1970's?


British and Canadian experts warned the big freeze could bury the east of Britain in 6,000ft of ice.

That's a LOT of ice. I wonder from what orifice they've pulled this estimate? 


Most of Scotland, Northern Ireland and England could be covered in 3,000ft-thick ice fields. 

The expanses could reach 6,000ft from Aberdeen to Kent – towering above Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest mountain.


And what's more, the experts blame the global change on falling - rather than climbing - levels of greenhouse gases. 


What? But I though SUV's were evil! Is my car too small now? Am I not doing my part? 


Lead author Thomas Crowley from the University of Edinburgh and Canadian colleague William Hyde say that currently vilified greenhouse gases – such as carbon dioxide – could actually be the key to averting the chill. 


Fire up your coal furnaces, folks! 


The warning, published in the authoritative journal Nature, is based on records of tiny marine fossils and the earth’s shifting orbit. 


Earth's orbit is shifting? How did we manage to cause that? It's got to be our fault, after all. 

Maybe we should try blowing up the moon or something. That would affect Earth's orbit.


The Earth has seen dramatic climate fluctuations – veering between cold and warm extremes - over the past three million years, the researchers say. 

And changes in the Earth’s orbit and slowly falling levels of carbon dioxide are the cause.

The team says we are approaching a turning point, in the next 10,000 to 100,000 years, which will lead to the new ice sheets smothering much of Europe, Asia and South America. 


Damn. And here I believed Ted Turner when he said we would all get to eat people in 30-40 years. Don't I look silly now?





The theory, which is based on computer models, suggests ice sheets will also slash sea levels by up to 300m, so Russia and Alaska will be connected by land. 

The North Sea will become part of a huge glacier stretching from Holland and Scandinavia to the Russian Far East.


Professor Crowley said the stark findings do not mean we should stop fighting warming. 

But he urged: ‘Don’t push the panic button.’

‘There’s no excuse for saying “we’ve got to keep pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere,”’ he told Reuters. 


But we have to DO SOMETHING!!! Run around in circles and wring our hands! 


‘Geologically it’s tomorrow, but we have lots of time to argue about the appropriate level of greenhouse gases.’

Where Can I Get My Brown Shirt?

It might be time to join one of those mountain top militias...




Hat tip to Common Sense.

Environmentalist Wackos Loose This One

Environmentalist wackos who tried to prevent the Navy from using sonar have failed:



The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that military training trumps protecting whales in a dispute over the Navy's use of sonar in submarine-hunting exercises off the coast of southern California.

Writing for the majority in the court's first decision of the term, Chief Justice John Roberts said the most serious possible injury to environmental groups would be harm to an unknown number of the marine mammals the groups study.

"In contrast, forcing the Navy to deploy an inadequately trained anti-submarine force jeopardizes the safety of the fleet," the chief justice wrote. He said the overall public interest tips strongly in favor of the Navy.

The Natural Resources Defense Council and other environmental organizations had sued the Navy, winning restrictions in lower federal courts on sonar use.

Dolphins, whales and sea lions are among the 37 species of marine mammals in the area.

The Bush administration argued that there is little evidence of harm to marine life in more than 40 years of exercises.

Joining Roberts' opinion were Justices Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

The court did not deal with the merits of the claims put forward by the environmental groups. It said, rather, that federal courts abused their discretion by ordering the Navy to limit sonar use in some cases and to turn it off altogether in others.


Read the rest here.

The scary thing is, this is effectively another 5-4 decision, just as with the Second Amendment. With four judges in the majority, two dissenting and two not joining either side, we just barely kept our Navy's ability to effectively defend our nation. 

I guess Flipper will just have to get used to the noisy neighbors.

Don't Piss Down My Neck...

Fabulous! Now they're actually pissing on us instead of simply doing it with legislation!


(UPI) – A Jersey City, N.J., city councilman said he has sworn off alcohol after being accused of urinating on a crowd at a Washington nightclub.

City Councilman Steven Lipski, 44, said Sunday he has given up alcohol for good after the "deeply humiliating, very embarrassing" incident at the 9:30 nightclub Friday, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

Deeply humiliating and embarrassing? Huh. I wonder how the folks that got pissed on felt? 

The two-term Democrat was charged with simple assault after club staffers allegedly caught him in the act of urinating from a second-floor balcony and onto the crowd below at about 9:50 p.m.

However, sources said Lipski has been telling colleagues club staffers were mistaken and it was a spilled drink that fell onto the revelers, not his urine.

"I spoke to one of his contributors this morning, and he's denying the whole thing," the source told the Daily News. "He's telling people he spilled a drink. It's ridiculous. He's already said he's not resigning. He's telling people that."


Why should Lipski resign? He's a Democrat; standards don't apply to him. He'll just say he's a victim of alcoholism and it wasn't his fault. He just needs counseling, not personal responsibility. 

Take note, peeps. The next time you party with a Dem, you'd better be wearing one of these:

I think I'll have a Martini, and you can bet I won't be pissing on anyone.

Here We Go...

WASHINGTON – President-elect Obama's advisers are quietly crafting a proposal to ship dozens, if not hundreds, of imprisoned terrorism suspects to the United States to face criminal trials, a plan that would make good on his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison but could require creation of a controversial new system of justice.

Hoping for Change

Ok, it's over. We've got President Elect Obama.

It sucks, I know.

Let me give you a little something to make you feel hopeful for some change:

When You Vote Today...


... Here is something to consider.


Dubai, 3 Nov. (AKI) - Americans will on Tuesday elect Democratic Party candidate Barack Obama the next United States president to save their country from its current economic and foreign policy crisis, according to a message posted to Al-Qaeda linked websites, notably Al-Hesbah. "They will vote Barack Obama the first black president of the United States to save themselves from the economic and military crisis that is engulfing them," said the statement signed by 'Lion of Jihad 2, The Electronic Jihad Brigades'.

The Electronic Jihad Brigades is a signature that often accompanies jihadist propaganda videos posted to the Internet. The message from 'Lion of Jihad 2' was posted to a section of Al-Hesbah reserved for 'official' jihadist statements.

"The election of a black man to the White House is no fluke but follows the swingeing blows inflicted by Al-Qaeda in attacks such as 11 September (2001)," the message states.

"The United States is currently going through one of its most difficult periods and Americans want to re-group. The ruling class is tired of the crisis and want to curb the country's divisions and the tensions between whites and blacks."

Blacks have great expectations for Obama, and view his victory as "a liberation from abuse and tyranny," said the message.

"It makes no difference if a Democrat wins. When Bill Clinton was president, he waged more attacks in Somalia, Kosovo and Bosnia , Sudan and Afghanistan and Iraq than Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George Bush," said the message, referring to other former US presidents before Clinton.



For five years Ali and Mohammed have lived alongside US soldiers in their Baghdad neighbourhood near Rasheed Street, a prominent commercial artery running through the heart of the Iraqi capital.

During that time American culture and politics have become familiar to them, and they say that if they could, they would vote for Republican candidate John McCain in next week's US presidential election.

"McCain would be best for Iraq because he would ensure stability," said Ali, 66, an expert on the Sumerian era.

The personal qualities and political platforms of McCain and his Democrat rival Barack Obama are of little import to Ali, however. His focus is on Iraq and its neighbours such as Iran.

"The Iranians believe that if Obama is elected he will not take action against them despite their nuclear ambitions. That worries me," said Ali, sitting on an old bench in Al-Zahawi coffee shop.

"If the Iranians get the bomb they will become the Tarzan of the region," said the former teacher and lecturer at the University of Baghdad, referring to the vine-swinging strongman of the jungle in old Hollywood movies.

Mohammed, also a professor at the university, said he too preferred McCain "because Obama supports a rapid withdrawal of US troops."

"Our army is still too weak and Turkey and Iran are threats. Iran's President (Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad has warned Iran would fill the void left when US troops depart," he said

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

Iraqis prefer instead to rely on the latest issues of weekly news publications such as Time and Newsweek, said government official Whamith Shadhan, who was browsing through second-hand books and magazines.

"I trust the Republicans more. They're more capable of establishing democracy in the world, especially in Arab countries," said the 33-year-old. "Obama is far too left."



Just something to think about.

Tomorrow is the big day! We don't know which way the election will go, but I'm getting ready to do my part.


By now you've probably heard that Obama's project-dwelling aunt is here illegally. She's been doing the work that other Americans don't want to do, I suppose. 

I found out while watching Fox News this morning. Not expecting to hear a peep from the others in the midstream media, I Googled Obama's aunt illegal under news.

This is result I got: 



Not ONE story by any U.S. news source. Every single top result was foreign... Gulf Daily News Bahrain, The Australian, Telegraph UK, Xinhua....

The rest of the world including communist China has freer access to information about Obama than the average American voter!

I also wanted to post about a sad story of what happens to people under the nanny-state mentality.

From this source, all emphasis mine:

EL PASO -- A man who jumped 60 feet to his death from the Spaghetti Bowl on Thursday left a note with a message for Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.

A note to "Obama" was found in the man's car, which was parked on the top ramp of the Spaghetti Bowl.

Officials offered no further explanation nor interpreted the note's meaning.

About 7:45 a.m., police responded to a report that the 52-year-old El Paso man had jumped off the uppermost ramp of the Spaghetti Bowl. His body was found on I-10 west just before the Copia Street exit. His name was not released.

Police spokesman Darrel Petry said Crimes Against Persons investigators were investigating the death as a suicide.

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

Police were also seen on Ramp F, the top ramp of the Spaghetti Bowl, next to the white four-door sedan, which was parked unattended. The ramp connects I-10 west to the Bridge of the Americas and Paisano Drive.

Police confirmed that the man left behind a note that read, "Obama take care of my family."


How utterly pathetic. 

Finally, a good scare for you the day before elections:


As I recall, the last government to install a 'civilian security force' in a time of economic downturn to 'ensure national security' was Germany...
