And so it starts

I knew this was only a matter of time before this crap started. I'm not sure if this was in retaliation for the airplane incident or not. But what I'd like to know is "where" is the moral outrage on this? It seems that both here and the Land of Oz that muslim taxi drivers are refusing to pick up passengers who are toting alcohol or blind ones with guide dogs. I don't know about the land down under....but here in the US it is "blatantly" against the Disability Act. I wonder ho...

It's about time the judical branch was slapped down and put in their place! I applaud the Bush administration for doing this. I just wish it had been done a loooong time ago. The is from the WSJ:

During the bitter controversy over the military commission bill, which President Bush signed into law on Tuesday, most of the press and the professional punditry misse...

I told everyone here when this mess first started with Rove and the so called White House conspiracy theory that nothing would come of it and that "no one" would do any jail time for it. Do you believe me now? This would include the likes of col gene and kingbee. Care to say you're sorry?

From the Media Research Center:


The media -- especially the Washington Post and New York Times -- relied heavily on Wilson's reckless and unfounded charges to wage journalistic jihad against the White H...

With all the hullabaloo going on over Hezbollah and Israel, it seems that the victory is not as sweet as some would have you believe. I still say we should have left Israel just clean up. Here is the link and a small excerpt from the piece.

Hezbollah's position is no more secure in the broader Arab world, where it is seen as an Iranian tool rather than as the vanguard of a new Nahdha (Awakening), as the Western media claim. To be sure, it is still powerful because it has guns, money...

Well just maybe Hollywood gets it. They fired Tom Cruise for conduct unbecoming. Follow the link below for the entire piece. What say you JU? I say about frigging time!

This is what Sumner Redstone told The Wall Street Journal: "His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount."

Translation: Sumner Redstone fired Tom Cruise for being an idiot.

Someone finally fired a celebrity for conduct unbecoming. This is an idea whose time has come, an idea that deserves the wides...

As much as I "hate" anonymous users, the one on Charles C's thread raised some interesting points. I have personally seen this happen only to an elderly person. They where threatened with "either do what I'm telling you or I'll put you in a home and then we'll do it anyway. So as to not hijack someone elses thread, I brought it here.


Medicine at gunpoint

I'd like to take just a moment to tell everyone here how proud I am of them. The last 3 of Klink's articles died on the vine. The only response he got was one that he did himself. Way to show self control guys and gals! Keep up the good work.

According to this piece from the WSJ it sounds like they "really" don't want a democracy. Just maybe we should leave them to their own devices.

Mr. Nasr uses this history to explain why Iraq's Shia so eagerly embraced the fall of Saddam Hussein. Whereas the Americans saw regime change in Iraq as a harbinger of democracy, Iraq's Shia viewed it primarily as the end to centuries of Sunni domination. And Saddam's fall inevitably stirred hopes for a Shia revival elsewhere. The mantra "one man, one...

Well the frogs have tried again, they have dangled the bait and we "bit"! How long before they cut and run this time? Any guesses?
And only 400 troops at that. They might as well stay home. They won't be of much use since all they know how to do is surrender when the going gets tough. The following is excerpt from the WSJ. To read the entire article follow the link.

Just what in the name of "Zeus's" butthole made them even consider doing this? Anyone got any ideas?

ABC & NBC Celebrate Princeton Salutatorian
Who's an Illegal

The Tuesday ABC and NBC evening newscasts ran tributes to Princeton University's salutatorian, illegal immigrant Dan-el Padilla Peralta, and NBC also hailed the efforts of illegals in Queens to defy efforts to crack down on them. At the top of World News Tonight, Charles Gibson fretted, "American dream: A Princeton graduate...

Look I know it's fun to argue with the clueless one. Heck, I do it myself. But he's getting to big for his britches. Try this.....for every post you put on his blog, give him 3 trolling cookies. I do it every day regardless of whether I post or not.

Some left wing wacko was just spouting off about how the estate tax needs to be left alone and in place. I say "phooey"! And....it would seem so do a bunch of my fellow Americans!

Taxes Everlasting
Why the superrich don't mind the death tax.

If you've followed the death tax debate, you know that few issues raise liberal blood pressure more. Liberal journalists in particular are around the bend: How in the wor...

For the most part I tend to agree with most people here. There are a few that are occasionsl exceptions.....BS, and Gid once in a while. The only one I tend to disagree with on a regular basis is our resident liberal kook whose name I can't say, But seems to be a shortened version of the word "colon". For the most part I "try" not to offend anyone but him. "If" I have offended anyone else, I do apologize.

I just went in to have tires put on my truck and what do I get? I get some fat slob of a manager ranting about how bad Bush is and how he's running the country into the ground. Then he goes on as to how good "Slick Willie" was and how "hanoijohnkerry" would have been a lot better than Bush.

I promptly told him that he just messed up big time and that he was talking to someone who was probably the most extreme right-winger he'd ever met. He then told me (in basic terms) that he didn't care and...
