Almost…..Almost!!!

I was out in the yard weeding and transplanting with the radio on in the background.  Talk radio on, of course, when all of a sudden the regular transmission is cut off and the show interrupted by a “news” announcement.

“Word just in that at a speech today, Hillary Clinton collapsed and....(I’m thinking DIED!  Yes, God, let it be that!) fainted on stage.”

Now, follow me here.  If the Hildebeast had collapsed and died, that’d be reason to interrupt the program, right?  With applause, cheers, whoops, hollers, and other displays of mirth and merriment.

But the bitch just fainted!  And they had to interrupt my program for THAT?

Assholes!

The Angry Left vs. Iraqi Voters

What does the Angry Left and the Liberal Establishment think of the vote in Iraq yesterday? Take your anti-nausea pills and go read the forum threads at Democratic Undergound. Here’s a small taste ....

All the media keeps talking about is how happy the Iraqis are, how high turnout was, and how “freedom” has spread to Iraq. I had to turn off CNN because they kept focusing on the so-called “voters” and barely mentioned the resistance movements at all. Where are the freedom fighters today? Are their voices silenced because some American puppets cast a few ballots?

I can’t believe the Iraqis are buying into this “democracy” bullshit. They have to know that the Americans don’t want them to have power, because they know that Bush is in this for the oil, and now that he finally has it he’s not going to let it go. This election is a charade. The fact is that the Iraqis have suffered during the past two years more than any people on earth at the hands of the American gestapo. Maybe they’re afraid and felt they had to vote. That’s the only way I can explain it to myself.

OR--I just thought of this--maybe they’re smiling because they’re using the Americans own game to defeat them. They’re voting in candidates who they know will widen the resistance, take the fight to the streets, and finally drive the occupying forces out of their country. Perhaps they’re smiling because--right under the American’s noses--they’re planting the seeds of a bigger and more effective resistance movement. Wouldn’t that be fitting? Use *’s own tools against them?

We can only pray that this is the case. Becuase if it’s not--and if the Iraq vote is seen as a success that spread “freedom"--the world is screwed. Bush’s inaugural speech left little doubt that he has other countries on his list to spread “freedom” to. They will be his next targets, and the world will burn because of it.

Let’s hope the resistance got voted in, or if not, they only increase the fight and take down those who betrayed their country today by voting in this fraud election.

My trigger finger is getting REAL damn itchy. I feel the need to take some target practice.

(-- hat tip to James Taranto at the WSJ Opinion Journal for this)

The Most Expensive War In History

Did you know that you, the American Taxpayer, are still paying for the Spanish American War? For those who are historically challenged, let me refresh your historical memory ....

15 February 1898
U.S.S. Maine explodes in Havana Harbor.

19 April 1898
The U.S. Congress by vote of 311 to 6 in the House and 42 to 35 in the Senate adopted the Joint Resolution for war with Spain.

20 April 1898
U.S. President William McKinley signed the Joint Resolution for war with Spain and the ultimatum was forwarded to Spain.

25 April 1898
War was formally declared between Spain and the United States.

April - December 1898
US kicks Spanish butt in Cuba, Guam, Puerto Rico, Phillipines ....

10 December 1898
Representatitves of Spain and the United States signed the Treaty of Peace in Paris. Spain renounced all rights to Cuba and allowed an independent Cuba, ceded Puerto Rico and the island of Guam to the United States, gave up its possessions in the West Indies, and sold the Philippine Islands, receiving in exchange $20,000,000.

6 February 1899
U.S. Senate ratified the Treaty of Paris by a vote of 52 to 27.

So there you have it. A minor little war that the Spanish never really wanted a part of and probably should never have gotten involved in. The whole thing, from start to finish, was over in less than a year and the US came away with lots of new territory.

So, what’s the point? Well, let me tell you about it ....

An influential congressional committee has dropped a political bombshell by suggesting that a tax originally created to pay for the Spanish American War could be extended to all Internet and data connections this year.

The committee, deeply involved in writing U.S. tax laws, unexpectedly said in a report Thursday that the 3 percent telecommunications tax could be revised to cover “all data communications services to end users,” including broadband; dial-up; fiber; cable modems; cellular; and DSL, or digital subscriber line, links.

Congress enacted the so-called “luxury” excise tax at 1 cent a phone call to pay for the Spanish American War back in 1898, when only a few thousand phone lines existed in the country. It was repealed in 1902, but was reimposed at 1 cent a call in 1914 to pay for World War I and eventually became permanent at a rate of 3 percent in 1990.

That 3% telecomm tax you pay each month is what this is all about and now Congress wants to expand the tax to internet access. Go read the article and write your CongressCrook today. Tell him or her how you feel about this blatant bullshit! Do it now!

Media Morons

Flashback to October, 2002. Citizens in Iraq go to the polls to vote and amazingly Saddam Hussein receives 100% of the vote. The MSM in America is all excited about this “historic vote” ....

■ “Iraqi citizens are preparing to go to the polls to decide whether Hussein stays in office.” — Preview of an October 14, 2002 segment on CNN’s American Morning with Paula Zahn posted on CNN’s Web site.

■ “Seven years ago, when the last referendum took place, Saddam Hussein won 99.96 percent of the vote. Of course, it is impossible to say whether that’s a true measure of the Iraqi people’s feelings.” — ABC reporter David Wright, World News Tonight, October 15, 2002.

■ “All 11,440,638 eligible voters went to the polls with one thought: Yes to Saddam Hussein! The government proclaimed it a victory of light over darkness, good over evil. It seemed more like a political miracle.“ — NBC reporter Keith Miller on Today, October 16, 2002.

■ Diane Sawyer: “I read this morning that he’s [Saddam Hussein] also said the love that the Iraqis have for him is so much greater than anything Americans feel for their President because he’s been loved for 35 years, he says, the whole 35 years.”

■ Dan Harris in Baghdad: “He is one to point out quite frequently that he is part of a historical trend in this country of restoring Iraq to its greatness, its historical greatness. He points out frequently that he was elected with a 100 percent margin recently.” — ABC’s Good Morning America, March 7, 2003.

What are these morons saying today? Go take a look. Compare today’s reports to their fawning over Saddam two years ago. Surprised?

Media Penchant For Distortion

If you read a lot of news articles (like this one, for instance) you can’t help but notice the media loves to throw around the “disenfranchisement” word or paint verbal pictures to that effect.

In this case it is for the poor, poor, pitiful, put upon, minority Sunnis.  Yep, the same disgusting bastards who, as a minority, did Saddam’s dirty works for decades.

Now the press is going around saying, “how can the elections be valid when entire segments of the population, like the Sunnis, did not vote and are not represented?”

How, indeed, you moonbats!.  Could it be because they CHOSE not to vote under orders by their so called “leaders?”

Hmmmm, no mention of that in any article I’ve read so far.

BMEWS:  Fair And Balanced

I admit to falling for the hype of the Iraqi election.  I may have even jumped the gun on some participation percentages.  So in an effort to be fair and balanced I offer this up for your review.  There is much to be said about what is written in this piece.  Time will tell but until then, digest these snippets and then go read it all here.

while the turnout is officially estimated at 60%, the real figure will probably turn out to be quite a bit lower, no more than 40-45%

In Basra, Iraq’s second largest town, the turnout was 32-35%, although Iraqi election officials claimed 90%.

Polling booths were not installed in the Sunni, Turkomen and Assyrian neighborhoods of the northern town of Mosul. Assyrian Christians staged large demonstrations to protest their loss of voting right and representation in the national assembly, but were given no alternative means of balloting; nor did they rate media attention.

Kurdish troops and intelligence are alleged to have trucked in tens of thousands of armed Kurds from across the province to commandeer the polling stations. Cautious estimates put the figure of imported voters at 50,000.

For more info, read Vox Day’s most recent column here.

Advertising For Criminals

What’s the fastest and surest way of guaranteeing that your city will become a haven for criminal activity forcing out many people who pay high taxes and fund your programs?

Easy!!

You collectively decide you will make it illegal for any citizen to own, buy, possess a handgun.

The rationale?

“With fewer handguns in the city, criminals will be much less likely to get their hands on one,” says Daly, noting that handguns were involved in more than 60 percent of last year’s 88 murders here.

I guess this fucktard has never left his city by taking a bus across the bridge to Oakland where guns are plenty and criminals will go in order to acquire them.

Stupid assholes!

I look forward to an increasing death rate in San Francisco.  Maybe the first victims will be the board of supervisors who proposed this.

I invite all law-abiding, gun owning San Francisco residents to sell your homes now while you can still get good money for them and move to a more gun-friendly state.  You’ll have lots of money from the sale of your homes and within 10 years will be able to return to re-purchase your home for 75% less than you sold it since the city’s economy will collapse, values will drop, people will see the error of their ways and guns will be allowed again so that you can defend yourselves.

What’s Right With Education

A mother is pissed off when she finds a poster at her elementary school which glorifies the art teacher and her lesbian relationship and asking children to be tolerant.  If she can’t get the school to knock off that shit she will pull her kids.

Bully for her!!


This one is bound to piss off the homosexual crowd!  College Republicans are gearing up for “Straight Pride” week festivities.

What do the homosexuals have to say?  That:

they consider the celebration an assault on homosexual students.

Can you believe how these fucktards twist an event and make it sound like “THEY” are the ones persecuted?  Using their logic, all heteros need to start massive protests whenever there are “homo pride” week celebrations claiming those celebrations are assaults upon them!!

So, who are the intolerant ones in this picture, eh?

Re-Writing History

I guess being relegated to the bottom of the pile for earthquake deaths has caused some “historians” in California (natch!!) to want to revise death numbers upwards.

I liken that to the same bullshit that goes on here in Florida during hurricane season.  A hurricane passes by and anyone dying of a heart attack died because of the hurricane.  Never mind that the poor son of a bitch was going to die the next time a dog barked and spooked him anyway.

Part of their justification is found near the end:

“There is evidence to show the number was suppressed for political reasons.”

Yet one paragraph above they claim that the revision:

would make the earthquake among the deadliest natural disasters in the nation’s history.

Political reasons indeed!!

And how much credibility can you give a newspaper that reports this and uses the word, “pour” when they mean “pore.”

Hey, I make mistakes too but I am not a newspaper nor do I have an editorial staff.  So lighten up!  grin

Is It About Money?  Or Teaching Kids?

You decide when you read this. And, of course, Californicators are involved.  What else is new?

A parent gets a note from the school saying their child has missed too many days and the parent is subject to a hearing and possible fines or jail.  No warnings.  Just a letter saying parent and child must attend a meeting.  Therein they find a DA and a cop with a holstered weapon.  At this meeting they are told that truancy costs the district money (among other things.)

So parents are a bit perturbed to all of a sudden be getting these letters.  Is it about actually teaching the kids or making money for the schools?

The “attendance improvement” program administrator said this:

when I started this program, which has become my passion, it’s about kids getting to school, getting fed, getting health care, getting their vision checked, getting their hearing checked, having counseling, getting their two meals a day and getting their education.

You got that, right? get them there, feeding them, medicating them, fix their eyes, make sure they can hear, counsel them, feed them again AND THEN EDUCATE THEM--if there’s any time left over, I guess!

MAN!!!  Am I glad getting a education made the list!!  Aren’t you! 

Now you know why I hate education bureaucrats!!

More From Money Grabbing Leftists

Officials in several states now want to add a vanity tax on “cosmetic surgeries.”

This is just WRONG!  What the hell is wrong with people who allow this sort of theft to take place?  Who’s to decide what is cosmetic or not?  What if keeping one’s job necessitates the procedure?  Where will it stop?

Just remember, this encroachment by government into our daily lives is made possible by the same people who generally do not have much of a stake in government revenue accumulation.  In other words, they pay no tax.  If they pay no tax, that means they do not make much money so this kind of stuff would never apply to them.  Therefore, they don’t care because they see it as another way for government to enrich the trough they feed from.

Lest ye forget:  when we reach the point where 51% of the population no longer pay taxes, what’s to prevent them from becoming a major force in elections to then vote themselves even more largesse---at our expense?
