Skip the Trip to Best Buy This Year!


It's Black Friday.

Today, thousands of people will be rude, competitive and inhumane to each other in a mad dash for stuff.

You may recall last year when a person was actually trampled to death over stuff.

I, for one, won't go out Christmas shopping today. The stuff couldn't be on sale enough to justify participating in this commercially created atmosphere of avarice and barbarity.

I might go to the grocery store later today, but because I actually need a couple of things. I sure won't go to a 'supercenter' where all of the crazies will be!



I probably won't be going to Best Buy at all this year:

A Best Buy ad with a Muslim theme is raising questions of how retailers should mark religious holidays.

The ad on BestBuy.com wishes Muslims a happy Eid al-Adha, a Muslim holiday that lasts three days and happens to fall on the extended Thanksgiving weekend.

A BestBuy.com message board has been filled with mixed responses since the ad was posted, MyFoxTwinCities.com reports.

One says, "Thank you Best Buy for the Eid Greetings!! I plan to spend more money at BB (Best Buy.) Thank you for being inclusive of various cultures."

Another post wasn't as supportive: "Happy Eid Al-Adha but no Merry Christmas? I assume your next advertisements will say Merry Christmas. Otherwise, I will no longer shop at best buy. I will shop at those businesses which support Christmas."

Best Buy released a statement saying, "We do use the word 'holiday' in some of our advertising because it is meant to be inclusive to everyone. However, just as we have in the past, we will also reference specific holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanza in our weekly ads, store signage and other advertising vehicles."


OK, for starters, most retailers don't use Merry Christmas in their ads until they start to feel pressure from the excluded folk's complaints.

Next, I won't support with my dollars a business that is 'inclusive' of a religion that supports the institutionalized repression and abuse of women, hatred of Jews, homosexuals and all of us infidels in general. I will not support with my dollars a business that is 'inclusive' of a religious system that still convicts people of witchcraft!

(By the way, Best Buy... Kwanza isn't a real holiday, but that's a post for another day.)

Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends, for whom I am grateful.

I hope your day is plentiful and goes well.

Outrage Trinity:

Three things are pissing me off today. First and foremost, from this source:

Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.

The three, all members of the Navy's elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral's mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers.

Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.

Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2, is facing charges of dereliction of performance of duty and making a false official statement.

Petty Officer Julio Huertas, SO-1, faces those same charges and an additional charge of impediment of an investigation.

That's it, dammit. We ask these men to put their lives on the line and take out high value enemies alive, Obama's administration wants to discipline and tarnish these men over a fat lip?!?

This asshole Abed deserves to be eaten alive by wild pigs for what he is, and we're worried about him getting a fist?

I'm done. Pull them all out. If we can't treat our military right then bring them home.

Next, almost two years ago I put up this post. Well, it turns out Mexican truckers coming over the border isn't such a good thing after all:

LAREDO, Texas (AP) | A U.S. program that offers trusted trucking companies speedy passage across American borders has begun attracting just the sort of customers who place a premium on avoiding inspections: Mexican drug smugglers.

Most trucks enrolled in the program pause at the border for just 20 seconds before entering the United States. And nine out of 10 of them do so without anyone looking at their cargo.

But among the small fraction of trucks that are inspected, authorities have found multiple loads of contraband, including 8 tons of marijuana seized during one week in April.

Some specialists now question whether the program makes sense at a time when drug traffickers are willing to do almost anything to smuggle their shipments into the United States.

Huh. Who would've guessed that this program would be fraught with corruption?

Lastly, Climategate. Where the feck is the midstream media on this one?

When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:

Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.

Fraud, extortion, corruption... C'mon, media, there might be a story here!

Islam: Women Under Attack


Where are the feminists? Where are the international human rights groups? When women are routinely brutalized and disfigured in the name of Islam, all we here is silence.


We typically think of terrorism as a political act.

But sometimes it’s very personal. It wasn’t a government or a guerrilla insurgency that threw acid on this woman’s face in Pakistan. It was a young man whom she had rejected for marriage. As the United States ponders what to do in Afghanistan — and for that matter, in Pakistan — it is wise to understand both the political and the personal, that the very ignorance and illiteracy and misogyny that create the climate for these acid attacks ca

n and does bleed over into the political realm. Nicholas Kristof, the New York Times op-ed columnist who traveled to Pakistan last year to write about acid attacks, put it this way in an essay at the time: “I’ve been investigating such acid attacks, which are commonly used to terrorize and subjugate women and girls in a swath of Asia from Afghanistan through Cambodia (men are almost never attacked with acid). Because women usually don’t matter in this part of the world, their attackers are rarely prosecuted and acid sales are usually not controlled. It’s a kind of terrorism that becomes accepted as part of the background noise in the region. ...


Saira Liaqat, 26, poses for the camera as she holds a portrait of herself before being burned, at her home in Lahore, Pakistan, Wednesday, July 9, 2008. When she was fifteen, Saira was married to a relative who would later attack her with acid after insistently demanding her to live with him, although the families had agreed she wouldn't join him until she finished school. Saira has undergone plastic surgery 9 times to try to recover from her scars.

Please do read the rest; it is worth it. I have sampled just one picture, but there are many more that graphically illustrate the savagery of Islam.

On Your Mark...



...And GO!

Today is the beginning of the Hajj, an annual event in which Muslims must trample each other running figure eights around a big black cube which contains a rock inside a bedpan.


Oh, and it's fresh and yummy rock, too:

Touching or kissing the Black Stone has a profound impact on the faithful as it is suppose to count in their favor on judgment day. The great Muslim traveler from Valencia, Ibn Jubayr (1145 - 1217) describes the emotion he felt on touching the stone; The stone, when one kisses it, has a softness and freshness which delights the mouth, so much so that he who places his lips upon it wishes never to remove them. It suffices, moreover, that the Prophet said that it is the Right Hand of God on Earth.

Amazing. It's a bit like those folks that see the Virgin Mary in their toast, except Islamists built a palace around theirs.

In any case, I am of the opinion that Mohammad mandated the trip to Mecca as a tourist revenue scheme, making it mandatory for the 'faithful' and reinforcing it by having them pray towards it five times a day.

But now the 'faithful' Muslim has more to worry about than the cost of getting to Mecca... What happens if he gets the swine flu while he's there?

I. Shit. You. Not.

For many Muslims it's the journey of a lifetime: making the Hajj pilgrimage. Almost 3 million faithful, together, in the city ofMecca, Saudi Arabia. But this year, the Hajj could become an incubator for the H1N1 virus.

At a Muslim community center in Duluth, Georgia, American Muslims pray and prepare for the Hajj. Lateefa Khan is here with her husband, Zakerullah. She has mixed emotions. They are leaving their children behind but say they look forward to the worship.

"It is very exciting. An amazing experience," Khan says. "I am looking forward to worshipping, focusing all my time on worshipping."

Khan will take precautions to avoid H1N1, also known as swine flu, at the Hajj. They'll carry hand sanitizer and will be "frequently washing our hands, trying to stay as clean as possible."

The Khans, along with a number of people at the center who are going on the Hajj, also are getting H1N1 inoculations.

Dr. Asif Saberi gives them a short lecture on how to prepare and encourages everyone to have their shots at least seven days before traveling. He says the Saudi government is doing a lot to protect pilgrims, but "the magnitude of the problem is the magnitude of the numbers of people who attend the Hajj."

When it comes to using hand sanitizer and wearing masks, Saberi says he encounters confusion about religious dictates and flu prevention. According to Muslim beliefs, for example, men in a state of pilgrimage should not wear any stitched items or touch alcohol. So what about wearing face masks or using alcohol-based sanitizers?


Now there's a pickle, eh?

I think it's hilarious that Muslims are getting swine flue vaccines so they can go to Hajj. I wonder if the pilgrimage makes up for that, or do they have to kill a few extra infidels or Jews to make up for that one?

America: A Banana Republic



So cloture passed over the weekend under the cover of darkness, and the leftists who want to kill this nation smiled like reptiles while they patted each other's back on C-Span.


Staffers on Capitol Hill were calling it the Louisiana Purchase.

On the eve of Saturday's showdown in the Senate over health-care reform, Democratic leaders still hadn't secured the support of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), one of the 60 votes needed to keep the legislation alive. The wavering lawmaker was offered a sweetener: at least $100 million in extra federal money for her home state.

And so it came to pass that Landrieu walked onto the Senate floor midafternoon Saturday to announce her aye vote -- and to trumpet the financial "fix" she had arranged for Louisiana. "I am not going to be defensive," she declared. "And it's not a $100 million fix. It's a $300 million fix."

How does it feel to be a whore, Landrieu? And an arrogant one, at that.

This is bullshit of the highest degree! We have a bunch of fat old pigs sitting in Capitol Hill who refuse to hear We The People, and have made it clear that they will do damn well whatever they want to us. While some some Republicans have begun to use the actual printed out bill as a prop to show the sheer size of this monstrosity that not one Democrat who voted for it has actually read, leftists are arguing like toddlers as they are enslaving us:

The real star of the health care debate this weekend has been the 2,074-page bill — a physical manifestation of the size and scope of what's at stake as senators consider the overhaul of one-sixth of the nation's economy.

"It's a massive increase in government, as shown by this bill," Mr. Ensign, Nevada Republican, told a reporter off the floor later, spreading his arms wide as if to encompass the stack of papers more than a foot tall.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Alaska Republican, said the bill weighs more than 20 pounds.

The bill contains the word "tax" 511 times and includes 18 tax hikes, according to Americans for Tax Reform, a conservative lobbying group. It uses the word "require" more than 1,000 times and the word "shall" more than 3,500 times, and talks about studies required by the bill 150 times.

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

"You only have print on one side, which isn't even the way we print them up around here. I've had mine printed up on both sides, so I use both sides of the paper. So they've made an attempt here to make it look a lot higher than it is," he said.

When the official version is printed, Mr. Udall said, the type will be much smaller and the bill will amount to "an average-size book."


Seriously? Well, I guess that if you're screwing us in a smaller font it's not so bad.

I hate these people, and I hate what they're doing to us. How dare they tell me that I have to buy anything or get fined or jailed! How dare they spend my grandchildren into debt! Where the fuck is that in the Constitution?!?

That's right, it isn't there. But just ask Pelosi that question. She literally laughed at a reporter who dared to do so!

The ARROGANCE!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, Americans, what this Congress is doing to us is absolutely illegal. I honestly do not see how we take our country back without torches and pitchforks. They don't listen when we have tea parties, town hall meetings, when we shut down their phone lines and fill their inboxes. I truly fear this country must be taken back by force, and I fear even more that most people haven't the balls to do it.

Depressed.


The news today has got me down.

First, we have the Senate doing the preliminary voting on a Saturday night under the cover of darkness over a bill that will give the government control of 1/6 of the U.S. economy and kill it, not to mention take away our freedom.

They may as well chant "Death to America" while voting.



Finally, we have a news story about a "mentally ill" teenager.

I say put a bullet in her and be done with it. And yes, that is merciful because she deserves far worse.

I can't take it, so I'm going on a mental staycation.

Americans Bow to Royalty?



How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty?

This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior.

Excerpted from an excellent article; please read the rest here.

Remember this:

Oh, but that wasn't a bow according to the White House. Maybe Obama was looking for a contact or something. Sheesh.

Rather than comport himself with the dignity of the office of the Presidency, Obama may as well go crawling to the world's royalties. Disgusting.

Guess What? The Border is Now Secure!

From this source, all emphasis mine:

Declaring success in border security and immigration enforcement, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Friday that the federal government has done its work and now it's time for Congress to pass a broad bill to legalize illegal immigrants.

Really? Well huzzah. I guess whenever we have a problem we can just SAY it's solved and it will be, huh?

Her speech signals President Obama will make good on his promise to push Congress to pass an immigration bill next year - adding yet another hot-button issue to an already long and contentious list.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do, Dems. Please guarantee your ousting in November!

Ms. Napolitano said members of Congress and voters who balked at an immigration bill two years ago, fearing a repeat of the 1986 amnesty that only made the problem worse, can be assured this time is different. She said in those two years, the flow of illegal immigrants across the border has dropped dramatically and the government is doing more to catch fugitive aliens inside the U.S.

Gee, that couldn't be because the economy is in the crapper. No, it MUST that suddenly leftists have decided to stop illegal immigration. LOL! Just when you think the left couldn't get any more absurd, they give us another one!

"The security of the southwest border has been transformed from where it was in 2007," she said in a speech to the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank. "The federal government has dedicated unprecedented resources to the Mexican border in terms of manpower, technology and infrastructure - and it's made a real difference."

But Republicans said her declaration of victory on border security was premature.

"How can they claim that enforcement is 'done' when there are more than 400 open miles of border with Mexico, hundreds of thousands of criminal and fugitive aliens and millions of illegal immigrants taking American jobs?" said Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee.

How indeed. Sheesh. As Beamish would say, it's a genetic predisposition for leftists to prove that they are imbeciles.

43 Fails:


One for each victim at Ft. Hood.

Welcome to the Collective.


Over the weekend, in the dark of night, the House passed the monstrosity that is universal health care without regard to the damage it will do to the country, the economy, and without having even read it.


The bill drew the votes of 219 Democrats and Rep. Joseph Cao, a first-term Republican who holds an overwhelmingly Democratic seat in New Orleans. Opposed were 176 Republicans and 39 Democrats.


The only hope now to save the country from this suicide is to stop the bill in the senate.

The "Religion of Peace" Strikes Ft. Hood


I am saddened and angered beyond all measure by the attack on Ft. Hood yesterday. When this began to break, I was in the car with my husband, listening to the radio.

Before the name of the shooter was even released, the MSM reported the FBI was telling everyone that this was not an act of terrorism.

Dave and I looked at each other and said "bullshit" simultaneously.

Excerpted from this source:

FORT HOOD, Texas – The base commander at Fort Hood says soldiers who witnessed a shooting rampage that left 13 people dead reported that the gunman shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before opening fire at the Texas post.

Lt. Gen. Robert Cone told NBC's "Today" show on Friday that suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, made the comment, which is Arabic for "God is great!" before the rampage Thursday that also left 30 people wounded.

Military officials say they are still piecing together what may have pushed Hasan, an Army psychiatrist trained to help soldiers in distress, to turn on his comrades.

Cone says Hasan was not known to be a threat or risk.

Hasan was shot four times during the rampage. Cone says he is hospitalized in stable condition and that military officials will interrogate him as soon as possible.

What pushed him? My guess would be Islam.

The gunfire broke out around 1:30 p.m. at the Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening. Nearby, some soldiers were readying to head into a graduation ceremony for troops and families who had recently earned degrees.

Pastor Greg Schannep had just parked his car along the side of the theater and was about to head into the ceremony when a man in uniform approached him.

"Sir, they are opening fire over there!" the man told him. At first, he thought it was a training exercise — then heard three volleys and saw people running. As the man who warned him about the shots ran away, he could see the man's back was bloodied from a wound.

Schannep said police and medical and other emergency personnel were on the scene in an instant, telling people to get inside the theater. The post went into lockdown while a search began for a suspect and emergency workers began trying to treat the wounded. Some soldiers rushed to treat their injured colleagues by ripping their uniforms into makeshift bandages to treat their wounds.

Fort Hood Lt. Gen. Bob Cone praised the soldiers for their quick reaction.

"God bless these soldiers," Cone said. "As horrible as this was it could have been worse."

Video from the scene showed police patrolling the area with handguns and rifles, ducking behind buildings for cover. Sirens could be heard wailing while a woman's voice on a public-address system urged people to take cover. Schools on the base went into lockdown, and family members trying to find out what was happening inside found cell phone lines jammed or busy.

"I was confused and just shocked," said Spc. Jerry Richard, 27, who works at the center but was not on duty during the shooting. "Overseas you are ready for it. But here you can't even defend yourself."


What pisses me off the most about this is that on a base of so many soldiers this terrorist was able to kill so many. I cannot believe that our military does require on duty soldiers to carry at least a service pistol! He should have been ventilated immediately.

That civilian police had to called in? WTF?!?

Obama should be ashamed that such an attack could take place on major military instillation, and under his watch as Commander-in-Chief.

Worse though, Obama won't do a damned thing about this. Not one damned thing, other than looking really somber in front of a row of cameras. It'll be written off as just another 'isolated incident' in a climate where we are increasingly seeing terrorist acts and honor killings on our own soil. There was an 'honor killing' reported earlier this very week because the daughter of a Muslim had become 'too westernized.'

Now we come to find out that this scumbag was posting praise of homicide bombers as little as six months ago, likening them to a soldier who throws himself on a grenade to save his men.

Read more about this scumbag's activities here.

Islam has no place in civilized societies. It is a seventh-century death cult catering to petty thugs and pedophiles.

SWINE FLU!!!

Not really! ;) I thought I'd just hype it up like the MSM.

We have all been sick for the last couple of days; nothing serious, just low-grade fever and aches.

I will be out making the blog rounds tomorrow.

Monday Funnies:



First off, to anyone whom my Twitter account has been somehow spamming, I'm sorry.

I'm going to try to figure it out, really!

That said, here are a few 'toons for 'ya:
