Our Friends

You fill up your vehicle with gas and pay the attendant. A good portion of that money finds its way back to Saudi Arabia, our major supplier of oil and one of our allies (?) in the Middle East. They take that money and send it to Romania, another ally of ours, in exchange for shoulder-fired missiles which are then sent to the Sunni insurgency in Iraq to be used to shoot down US war planes. You just killed a US Air Force pilot.

All of this happens because of our dependency on foreign oil. We continue to put up with crap from countries like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela because we need their oil. Meanwhile, the only thing coming out of the Arctic National Wilderness Area is caribou and snow. Offshore drilling in the Gulf Of Mexico is strictly limited. No nuclear power plants have been built in decades. Do you see where this is going?

It all comes back to oil and we’re being strangled by the enviro-weenies at home and the mad-hatters overseas. The President puts forward an energy bill to open up ANWR and the enviro-weenies go berserk causing Congress to kill it. Meanwhile, Hugo Chavez calls us names and laughs at us. The House Of Saud gets richer and richer as they jack up the price of oil again and again ... and allow their citizens to come to America and fly airplanes into buildings.

When will this end? Are we all too freaking stupid to see what is going on? If you answered “never” and “yes” to those two questions, you are probably right because our elected leaders are too cowardly to tell the enviro-whackos to sit down and shut up and most of them are probably being bought off with foreign oil money themselves.

They tell us we need to conserve energy and use less. They tell us Alaska needs to remain a pristine wilderness. They tell us nuclear power is dangerous. They tell us the Saudis are our friends. Are you as tired as I am of being lied to over and over and over and .... ?

Saudis Reportedly Funding Iraqi Sunnis
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - December 8, 2006

imageimagePrivate Saudi citizens are giving millions of dollars to Sunni insurgents in Iraq and much of the money is used to buy weapons, including shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles, according to key Iraqi officials and others familiar with the flow of cash.

Saudi government officials deny that any money from their country is being sent to Iraqis fighting the government and the U.S.-led coalition.

But the U.S. Iraq Study Group report said Saudis are a source of funding for Sunni Arab insurgents. Several truck drivers interviewed by The Associated Press described carrying boxes of cash from Saudi Arabia into Iraq, money they said was headed for insurgents.

Two high-ranking Iraqi officials, speaking on condition of 96 because of the issue’s sensitivity, told the AP most of the Saudi money comes from private donations, called zaqat, collected for Islamic causes and charities. Some Saudis appear to know the money is headed to Iraq’s insurgents, but others merely give it to clerics who channel it to anti-coalition forces, the officials said.

In one recent case, an Iraqi official said $25 million in Saudi money went to a top Iraqi Sunni cleric and was used to buy weapons, including Strela, a Russian shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missile. The missiles were purchased from someone in Romania, apparently through the black market, he said.

Overall, the Iraqi officials said, money has been pouring into Iraq from oil-rich Saudi Arabia, a Sunni bastion, since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq toppled the Sunni-controlled regime of Saddam Hussein in 2003. Saudi officials vehemently deny their country is a major source of financial support for the insurgents.

“There isn’t any organized terror finance, and we will not permit any such unorganized acts,” said Brig. Gen. Mansour al-Turki, a spokesman for the Saudi Interior Ministry. About a year ago the Saudi government set up a unit to track any “suspicious financial operations,” he said.

But the Iraq Study Group said “funding for the Sunni insurgency comes from private individuals within Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states.” Saudi officials say they cracked down on zakat abuses, under pressure from the United States, after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington.

The Iraqi officials, however, said some funding goes to Iraq’s Sunni Arab political leadership, who then disburse it. Other money, they said, is funneled directly to insurgents. The distribution network includes Iraqi truck and bus drivers.

Several drivers interviewed by the AP in Middle East capitals said Saudis have been using religious events, like the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca and a smaller pilgrimage, as cover for illicit money transfers. Some money, they said, is carried into Iraq on buses with returning pilgrims.

“They sent boxes full of dollars and asked me to deliver them to certain addresses in Iraq,” said one driver, who gave his name only as Hussein, out of fear of reprisal. “I know it is being sent to the resistance, and if I don’t take it with me, they will kill me.”

Feeding The Alligator

Mike Lester - The Rome News-Tribune (GA)

Feeding the Alligator
-- by Michael Reagan

image imageDoes everybody on the planet spend time kicking the president of the United States? I ask this because it seems that we are in the midst of an open season on George W. Bush.

I’ve never seen a presidency where everybody shoots at the president and nobody defends him, except his wife and Tony Snow. People who oppose “waterboarding” the enemy would be happy to see George Bush undergo the ordeal.

He’s not even immune from attacks from people he picks to fill the highest offices in his administration. He’s forced to sit in the Oval Office and watch the man he chose to be secretary of defense publicly disagree with him on nationwide TV by telling Sen. Carl Levin we are losing the war in Iraq, an argument the president rejects out of hand.

It gave us an insight into what was bound to happen with the release of the Iraq Study Group report. The media and the Democrats all jumped on the group’s assertion that Iraq is a God-awful mess, implying that it’s all George Bush’s fault, and coming up with a lot of suggestions that somebody noted could have easily been written by Miss Paris Hilton.

Instead of suggesting that the only way to deal with the massive problems in Iraq—the sectarian violence and the attacks by both foreign and domestic insurgents—is to take the gloves off and come out slugging, the group comes up with recommendations that have nothing to do with winning the war, as that seems to be unthinkable, and everything to do with putting on a good show while we depart.

Without ever coming out and saying it, the study group leaves no doubt that it thinks George Bush is not up to the job and has made a real mess of things that can only be “solved” by such idiotic moves as sitting down and having talks with Syria and Iran, both nations that dream nightly about killing us all and bringing the enlightenment of Islamic law and rule to a world badly in need of Islamic reform.

It’s as Churchill once said about appeasement: it’s a case of feeding the alligator and hoping it will eat you last.

What you see in all of this is that there is a complete lack of support and respect for this president, even from the people he has around him. For Gates to come out and say what he did in the confirmation hearings for the job George Bush has given him, is nothing less than sheer ingratitude – if not open contempt for his benefactor.

And he not only takes issue with the president who has appointed him, but does so with impunity. It doesn’t matter to him that he gave aid and comfort to the enemy. It doesn’t matter to him that it demoralizes the troops in harm’s way in Iraq. It’s all about him saying what will help him be confirmed as the secretary of defense.

He sailed through the hearings and got an almost-unanimous approval from the full Senate – but you have to wonder he would have had it so easy up there on Capitol Hill if he had disagreed with Levin and agreed with the president that we are not losing the war in Iraq. Instead, he told the Democrats and the media what they wanted to hear.

You have to remember that he is a member of the Iraq Study Group and as such has signed on to their report. He comes from a group of people I know well. They all think they are little gods. It’s either their way or no way. They think that they are the be-all and end-all, and the media fawn on them and feed their insatiable egos.

Their new way of dealing with Iraq is to figure out ways to leave. My way is more straightforward and simple: forget pandering to the Left’s pacifist instincts and just go ahead and kill the enemy, every single one of them.

If my Dad had listened to that bunch the Cold War would still be going on, there would have been no strategic defense initiative, and there would be no Ronald Reagan legacy worth a darn. Instead, he hung tough and we won.

“USS Arizona Memorial”
(Click image for larger 1600x1200 image in popup window)

The USS Arizona Memorial is the final resting place for many of the battleship’s 1,177 crew members who lost their lives on December 7, 1941. The Japanese aerial bomb that struck the forward section of the USS Arizona ignited the forward magazine causing a catostrophic explosion that sunk the battleship in nine minutes. The national memorial commemorates the site where World War II began for the United States.

Christmas Gift Idea #18

For those of you paying attention, yes this is a countdown to Christmas. I fell behind on Monday so I’m catching up today with not one but two great Christmas ideas. And yes, there are only 18 days to go before Christmas.

Now, if you’re gonna dream, you might as well dream big. Think $3.65 million big ... for a deposit. Hell, Bill Gates made that much money while I was typing this sentence. And I’m a pretty fast typist. Now, if you really want a Honda for Christmas why settle for a crappy motorcycle. Go for the gusto! Get together with your friends and pool your money and ... BUY ME ONE OF THESE!

You bet! We could paint it in camo coloring, mount .50 caliber machine guns in the nose and have them put hard points on the wings for other “goodies.” Then I could fly around the country picking up a team of you Grumpy Old Farts With Guns™ and we could swoop down on either Teheran or Pyongyang and show them a real Team America. It could work. Really. Now hurry up and call Honda and order one fer me. Ho-ho-ho ....

ORLANDO, Fla., U.S.A., October 17, 2006 – Honda Aircraft Company, Inc. began sales of HondaJet at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention with the announcement of the price, production specifications and a sales and service network for its advanced light jet.  Scheduled to go into production in the U.S. in 2010, pricing is set at $3.65 million for HondaJet in its standard configuration.

Key production specifications and performance figures for HondaJet establish it as the fastest and most fuel efficient jet in its class while setting a new standard for interior space and comfort.  HondaJet features a class-topping cruise speed of 420 knots with an IFR range of 1180 nautical miles1, and a 30-35 percent gain in fuel efficiency versus other jets of comparable performance.  HondaJet’s cabin is about 1-foot longer than even larger ‘light jet’ offerings, and features a fully-private lavatory along with a spacious 57-cubic foot aft cargo hold.

image


Although compact in design, HondaJet provides a large cabin with enough interior space to comfortably seat 6 to 7. The patented over-the-wing engine-mount design eliminates the need for a structure to mount the engines to the rear fuselage, maximizing cabin and luggage space. HondaJet will be offered in two interior configurations: with seating for seven (2 pilots and 5 passengers) in standard configuration, and with seating for eight (2 pilots and six forward-facing passenger seats) in air taxi configuration. HondaJet’s cabin offers its passengers unprecedented levels of comfort with as much as six inches more leg room (per passenger) than competitive offerings.  HondaJet’s 57 cubic-foot aft cargo hold is as much as 50 percent larger than other jets in its class.  Additional cargo storage is provided by a nine cubic-foot nose cargo hold.

CESMNN

France is about to about to launch a pre-emptive attack on CNN and the BBC with the launch of the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey News Network (CESMNN). Help Jacques Chirac come up with a new slogan for his new network. My personal preference is “Plus de merde que les autres réseaux” (more shit than the other networks). Mheh-heh ....

France Launches 24-Hour News Channel
PARIS (FOX NEWS) - Wednesday, December 06, 2006

imageimageFrance goes head-to-head with CNN and the BBC from Wednesday with the launch of its state-funded 24/7 news channel, part of President Jacques Chirac’s efforts to make his country’s voice heard. France 24 will broadcast two channels, one in French and the other mostly in English.

“Our mission is to cover worldwide news with French eyes,” CEO Alain de Pouzilhac told AP Television News. He said the channel will emphasize in-depth reporting and debate, culture and “l’art de vivre” — the art of living.

The channel launches its trilingual Web site — with video on demand and content in French, English and Arabic — at a gala in Paris’ Tuileries Garden on Wednesday evening. Chirac is to attend. Televised broadcasts follow 24 hours later. It will transmit to Europe, the Middle East and Africa via satellite, initially reaching an estimated 75 million households in more than 90 countries.

France 24 expects to expand coverage in North America and Asia and add Arabic and Spanish-language broadcasts in coming years. Programming on the French and English channels will be virtually identical, with 10-minute news bulletins every half-hour, and a selection of reports, talk shows and news magazines filling between-bulletin gaps.

France 24 will likely face stiff competition in a crowded all-news market that includes CNN, BBC World and Al-Jazeera, which made its English-language debut last month. France 24 executives say the channel’s French touch will make it stand out.

“Opinion leaders said they were very skeptical about international news because we have only one vision of the world,” said Pouzilhac, adding that Al-Jazeera in English now represents a second editorial line in cable news. “France 24 will be the third way.”

The idea for the channel, discussed for more than a decade, gained resonance during the run-up to the Iraq invasion in 2003, when Chirac tried to slow the U.S. drive to war and some media in the United States and Britain mocked his efforts.

The Grande Planne

imageimageBelow is a summary of the Iraq Study Group’s report. You can download or view the full 160-page piece of crap here (1.8MB PDF).

The media and the Democrats in Congress already have their plan in place: if Bush deviates from the plan by even one iota, he will be portrayed as a partisan, fascist bully. Oh yeah, and a stupid chimp too.

If the Democratic Congress changes anything or even throws out the whole plan, they will be praised for their flexibility and bipartisan approach to correcting the Bush administration’s mistakes. That is the Grande Planne of the Donks and the liberal media.

As for the Iraq Study Group’s plan, you can forget it. They lost me at item 1 below - Item 2 just made it worse. This sounds like it all came from the pen of Dhimmi Carter. Imagine if you will, in July of 1944, the allies are bogged down in hedgerow country in Normandy. A special report is commissioned by Congress and their recommendation is to announce a withdrawal of all US troops from Europe by Spring of 1945 but leave enough “advisers” to assist the French and Brits in beating back the Nazis.

Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Churchill and Roosevelt would have had anyone suggesting such a thing locked up for the duration - and possibly longer.

America used to be the country whose way of war demanded unconditional surrender. Nowadays, we are become a country that only demands unconditional withdrawal. That rumbling sound you hear is all the graves in Arlington complaining in righteous indignation. You don’t even want to hear what they think of this horse-shit.

imageimageWill It Work In The White House?
(NY TIMES) - December 7, 2006


Troop Withdrawal

1. Announce a plan for American forces to begin pulling back, whether the Iraqis are ready or not, to signal to the Iraqis that Washington would not prop up the Iraqi government with military forces endlessly.

2. Gradually pull back the 15 American combat brigades now in Iraq, starting next year and ending by the first quarter of 2008. Afterward, American combat forces could be deployed “only in units embedded with Iraqi forces.” While numbers are still approximate, phased withdrawal of combat troops over the next year would leave 70,000 to 80,000 American troops in the country, compared with about 150,000 now, for a long time to come.

3. Special operations forces would remain to battle Al Qaeda in Iraq.

4. Link American withdrawal to the performance of the Iraqi military, leaving open the possibility that American troops would stay longer if the Iraqi government takes on the militias, but threatening accelerated withdrawal if the Iraqi government fails to act decisively and control the violence.

5. Significantly increase the number of American military personnel supporting and embedded with Iraqi troops. As this proceeds, United States combat forces can begin leaving Iraq.

6. “The Iraqi government should accelerate assuming responsibility for Iraqi security by increasing the number and quality of Iraqi Army Brigades.”

The United States should:

1. Begin a new diplomatic offensive to build an international consensus for stability in Iraq and the region. The effort should include every country that has an interest in avoiding a chaotic Iraq, including all of Iraq’s neighbors.

2. Try to engage Iran and Syria constructively, using incentives and disincentives.

3. Renew commitment to a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace process, including President Bush’s commitment to a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine.

Iran should:

1. Stem the flow of arms and training to Iraq.

2. Respect Iraq’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

3. Use its influence over Iraqi Shiite groups to encourage national reconciliation.

Syria should:

1. Control its border with Iraq to stem the flow of funding, insurgents and terrorists in and out of Iraq.

International efforts:

1. The issue of Iran’s nuclear arms should be dealt with by the five members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany.

2. A possible regional conference on Iraq or broader Middle East peace issues.

Barking Mad In Indonesia

Let me see if I’ve got this straight ... the Indonesian edition of Playboy contains no nudity but “the models had inviting expressions on their faces” and “the magazine included lascivious and lustful comments”? Does that just about sum it up?

Has there ever been a more retarded, sexually-obsessed (and repressed) group of morons on the face of the Earth? If a religion supports killing and murder of “unbelievers” yet prohibits men from even looking at a beautiful woman, then it’s not a religion - it’s a mental disease ...

Trial Opens For Playboy Indonesia Editor
JAKARTA, Indonesia - December 7, 2006, 1:04 AM EST

imageimageThe editor-in-chief of Playboy Indonesia went on trial Thursday on charges of publishing indecent material—a crime that carries a maximum punishment of more than 2 1/2 years in prison.

A prosecutor told the South Jakarta District Court that Erwin Arnada oversaw photo shoots and published revealing pictures of female models in underwear, some showing partially exposed breasts.

“The models also had inviting expressions on their faces,” said Resni Muchtar, adding that the magazine included lascivious and lustful comments.

The defense, which was not required to enter a plea, said it would respond to the charge at a later hearing. Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation, with some 190 million practicing a mostly moderate form of the faith.

Playboy launched a toned-down version of its magazine in the country in April to protests from conservatives demanding it be taken off the streets. The magazine kept publishing, but moved its editorial offices to mostly Hindu Bali island.

Unlike its American version and editions in dozens of other countries, Indonesian Playboy contains no nudity. The trial was adjourned until Dec. 14, when witnesses will be called.

Question: How can you say they practice a “mostly moderate form of the faith” when Muslim men attack, rape and behead Christian schoolgirls for fun?

Quote Of The Day

Calling the Iraq war “the worst strategic mistake in the entire history of the United States” and “worse than a civil war,” former Vice President Gore urged President Bush to find a way to get U.S. troops out of Iraq “as quickly as possible without making the situation worse” while appearing this morning on NBC’s “Today.”

“I would urge the President to try to separate out the personal issues of being blamed in history for his mistake and instead recognizing that it is not about him. It’s about our country,” Gore said in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer.

Who Is Glen Beck?

Who in heck is Glen Beck and why am I just now hearing about him? Oh, it must be because I never watch the Communist News Network (CNN). Well, whoever he is, he has the Liberals and Muslim-apologists up in arms and mad as hell at him.

I wonder why? Was it something he said ....  LOL

imageimageFlirting With Fascism on CNN Headline News
Host Glenn Beck threatens Muslims with concentration camps
(FAIR) - December 5, 2006

The New York Times (12/4/06), profiling new CNN Headline News host Glenn Beck, called him “brash” and “opinionated,” with an “unfiltered approach.” The conservative talk-radio host-turned-cable news announcer, the paper reported, “take[s] credit for saying what others are feeling but are afraid to say.”

The Times mentioned one of the things Beck has said recently, to newly elected U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), a Muslim: “Sir, prove to me that you are not working with our enemies.” But as press critic Eric Alterman pointed out (Altercation, 12/4/06), as offensive as that question is, it doesn’t begin to suggest the poisonousness of Beck’s rhetoric about Muslims.

When Beck is talking about “razor wire,” he’s talking about concentration camps—in the original sense of the word, places where masses of people are imprisoned “just based on the way you look or just based on your religion.” Despite his (perfectly accurate) observation that such camps are “Nazi, World War II wrong,” comparable to the “absolutely disgraceful” wartime internment of Japanese-Americans, Beck is clearly using the threat of such camps to coerce Muslims into behavior he approves of, like volunteering “to shoot the bad Muslims in the head.”

On his August 10 radio show, distributed by Clear Channel’s Premiere Radio Networks, Beck told listeners, “The world is on the brink of World War III,” then issued this warning:

All you Muslims who have sat on your frickin’ hands the whole time and have not been marching in the streets and have not been saying, ‘Hey, you know what? There are good Muslims and bad Muslims. We need to be the first ones in the recruitment office lining up to shoot the bad Muslims in the head.’ I’m telling you, with God as my witness… human beings are not strong enough, unfortunately, to restrain themselves from putting up razor wire and putting you on one side of it. When things—when people become hungry, when people see that their way of life is on the edge of being over, they will put razor wire up and just based on the way you look or just based on your religion, they will round you up. Is that wrong? Oh my gosh, it is Nazi, World War II wrong, but society has proved it time and time again: It will happen.

Since 9/11, Americans have gotten so fed up with the “yes, but” Muslims. The “yes, but” Muslims are the ones who show up on talkshows and in the media and say, “Yes, terrorism is bad, but"—and then they go through a list of reasons on why we should try and sympathize with people who fly planes into buildings.... If, God forbid, there’s another attack, we won’t have anymore patience for the “yes, buts.” The Muslim community better find a spokesman who isn’t a “yes, but” Muslim. They shouldn’t even understand the word “but,” because if they don’t, when things heat up, the profiling will only get worse, and the razor wire will be coming.

You want the profiling to stop? Then, here’s an idea. Stop murdering innocent people. Stop excusing the people who do. You do that for a while, and I guarantee you won’t have any more problems at the airports. Stop blowing stuff up and the world just might be your oyster. Otherwise, it’s going to be like that movie, The Siege. You remember that movie? The Muslims will see the West through razor wire if things don’t change.

Look, I’m not saying all Arabs and Muslims are anti-American. Far from it. We should get to know these people and embrace the good Muslims, and eliminate the bad ones. Here’s what I don’t know. I don’t know if the Muslim community will ever step to the plate like the Japanese-American community did during World War II. You know, it was absolutely disgraceful how we rounded innocent people up then and, sadly, history has a way of repeating itself no matter how grotesque that history might be. The Muslim community can prevent this if they act now.

P.S. By the way, FAIR and the NY TIMES wants you to write CNN and tell them to cancel Beck’s show. Good luck with that.

Christmas Gift Idea #20

Never again will you have to worry about finding yourself in the embarassing situation of showing up at a gun fight with a knife or vice versa (although the latter situation is much to be desired). Now you can blow a hole in them and carve them up while you’re at it. This nifty two-fer Christmas gift is just the thing for that person on your list who already has everything. Or thought they did ....

With muggings happening on a daily basis all over the neighborhood, make sure you do your part by picking up this G.R.A.D. .22-caliber gun which actually comes under the guise of a knife. The designer was probably inspired by the good old bayonet that soldiers relied on to perform their finishing move in case the bullet-riddled enemy has yet to give up the ghost. Each G.R.A.D. costs $699 and can hold up to 5 bullets at a time.

Don’t Tread On Me

This came across our radar screen from LGF. You may be surprised to learn that we live in a country where burning the American flag is protected as freedom of speech but burning the flags of terrorist organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas is considered “hate speech” and will get you thrown off of certain college campuses ... at least in San Francisco.

I only wish I could live long enough to witness the San Andreas Fault dump the whole lot in the Pacific. With any luck the pollution level in that ocean might revert back to normal after a few million years. All those weirdos and whackos being digested by sharks could hurt the shark population though. It’s a tradeoff I can live with ...

ASI Passes Resolution Against Flag Stomping
(GOLDEN GATE EXPRESS) - November 28, 2006 08:48 PM

imageimagePreceding an ongoing investigation into SF State College Republican behavior, the Associated Students board unanimously adopted a resolution condemning the student group for purposely stomping on flags containing the Arabic symbol for God.

“Associated Students, Inc. deems the College Republicans’ actions as contrary to university values and feel they should be held accountable by the university for their actions,” the resolution says.

The Nov. 15 resolution comes on the heels of several student and student organization complaints at board meetings and the Office of Student Programs and Leadership Development, or OSPLD, which has also sparked a separate investigation and assembly of a special panel to decide if the College Republicans did indeed violate the university’s conduct rules.

The resolution cited a rule outlined in the university’s Strategic Plan saying, “SFSU facilitates teaching, learning and work experiences among students, faculty and staff that promote equity and social justice within a respectful and safe environment.”

Moreover, the resolution sets the stage for the College Republicans possibly losing official student group status and or ASi funding. Amid heavy campus police presence at an Oct. 17 anti-terrorism rally in Malcolm X Plaza, some members of the crowd turned angry when the College Republicans stepped on homemade Hezbollah and Hamas flags, though the student group claims they were not initially aware the flags contained the Arabic symbol for God.

After that, the College Republican-organized rally dissolved into a heated shouting match between the group and a mix of students, including some Muslim students, eventually resulting in formal complaints to student representatives.

‘They were voicing their concerns that this event was even allowed. They were offended,” said Kimberly Castillo, board member and chair of University Affairs, the committee that drafted the resolution. “We felt it our duty to respond.”

The College Republicans said they will take legal action against the university if sanctions are imposed upon them, citing their First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Quote Of The Day

“There is at least one nice thing one can say about former New York mayor and current Republican presidential hopeful Rudolph Giuliani—besides, of course, his penchant for dressing in drag, his love for opera, and the fact that he used to share an apartment with a gay man. On 9/11, all Americans were frightened children, and in a moment of mythic personal heroism, Mayor Giuliani filled the gaping leadership void. The president looked like a petrified chimp; Cheney was spirited to an underground bunker. Only Giuliani could pull himself together sufficiently to get on TV in the midst of the wreckage and show America that a grown-up was still breathing. On that terrible day our reptile brains looked at Rudy Giuliani and said, “We’re OK now. Daddy’s home.” And we forgot, some for a moment, some permanently, that Daddy was psycho.”

-- Salon.com, December 5, 2006

Petrified chimp? Psycho? If any of you actually thought the Leftists and Liberals might calm down after the 2006 election, you were apparently wrong. They are already foaming at the mouth with a bad case of GDS (Giuliani Derangement Syndrome) ... even before they’ve been cured of BDS. Will this s**t never end?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
