obama: half and half

Obama visits Alaska. First sitting president to ever go there.

Yay, Mr. President. About time. Hard to believe it ... Alaska has been a state for 55 years now. About time they got a visit. Lucky for them, this was State #55 on his list of 57 states. 

But Drew, plenty of other presidents have been to Alaska! Ah ha ha, don’t get your dogsled traces tangled. Obama is visiting Alaska NORTH of the Arctic Circle, which is way the heck up there, where just about nobody lives. It’s the northern third of the state, of which about half is wildlife refuge and parkland. Hundreds of thousands of square miles of land, and the biggest “city” of Barrow has something like 4,000 people. So it’s the Big Big Big Empty. About the biggest thing up there are the remains of the old Cold War DEW Line stations, first cousins to the original military BMEWS system. Most of these radar sites have been torn down and abandoned. White Alice doesn’t live here any more.

He’s heading up there to rub noses with teh “Esquimox”, and use the barren frozen wilderness as a massive photo op to push his Climate Change initiative. So this is all political grandstanding. And maybe he can get a prize for another meaningless “firstie” for black people. First Community Organizer voluntarily north of the Line who wasn’t in the military or something. No word on whether the Firs Fambly will go with him, but rumors of cries of “nigga you crazy??” being heard on Pennsylvania Avenue are circulating. Currently experiencing a heat wave, the recent daily high temps in Barrow at the peak of summer have hit almost 9 degrees above freezing. Break out the lemonade!!

Boo, Mr. pResident. Obama visits Alaska. Gives white people the finger (again) by renaming #2 world famous mountain Mount McKinley, as Mount Denali. The whole range of mountains is named the Alaska Range, and this one, the tallest mountain in North America, just happens to sit in the middle of a gigantic nature preserve called Denali Park. It was named in honor of former president William McKinley. Yeah, but the locals have always called it Mount Denali. Really? What locals? The nearest town of any size is this place called ... Wasilla. Wasilla? Ruh roh!!

at 20,237 feet tall, Mt. McKinley is a whole lot of whiteness


Obama flies to Anchorage on Monday morning for a three-day tour of the nation’s largest state, closely choreographed to call attention to the ways Obama says climate change is already damaging Alaska’s stunning scenery. By showcasing thawing permafrost, melting sea ice and eroding shorelines, Obama hopes to raise the sense of urgency to deal quickly to slow climate change in the U.S. and overseas.

His excursion north of the Arctic Circle will make Obama the first sitting president to step foot in the Alaska Arctic, home to Alaska Natives who have received less attention amid Obama’s recent efforts to improve conditions for Native Americans. In a major show of solidarity, Obama announced on the eve of his trip that his administration is changing the name of North America’s tallest peak, Mount McKinley, to Denali, its traditional Athabascan name.

Obama’s move to strip the mountain of its name honoring former President William McKinley, a son of Ohio, drew loud condemnations from Ohio lawmakers, including House Speaker John Boehner, who said he was “deeply disappointed” in the decision.

“This political stunt is insulting to all Ohioans, and I will be working with the House Committee on Natural Resources to determine what can be done to prevent this action,” added Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio.

In renaming 20,320-foot Mount McKinely as Denali, Obama was instating a moniker Alaskans have informally used for centuries. The name means “the high one” in Athabascan.

Yet Obama was to navigate far more turbulent political waters when he arrived Monday afternoon in Anchorage, where his grand declarations on climate change have been met with skepticism by leaders in a state that’s heavily dependent on oil revenues that have fallen precipitously.

At the same time, environmental groups warned in the lead-up to Obama’s trip that he hadn’t done enough to protect Alaska and the climate. They took particular offense at his administration’s move just a few weeks ago to give Royal Dutch Shell a final permit for expanded drilling off Alaska’s northwest coast.

Oh, you hadn’t heard about that one? Well, remember how it was so ever lastingly vital under BOOOSH that “drill here, drill now” be brought to a screaming halt to Save Teh World? Even his glee squad at CNN is pissed at him for his latest sell out ...

The Last Frontier state is arguably the best place in the United States to see the now-now-yes-really-now effects of climate change. On the U.S. President’s itinerary: melting glaciers, struggling fishermen and the cultural dislocation of Alaska Native villages.

The Arctic is warming at about twice the rate of the rest of the globe, meaning it’s an obvious front line in the war on global warming. That Obama is highlighting the clear and present dangers of climate change is vitally important. It may help wake up the American people to a topic they’ve been slow to embrace. And it may help bolster Obama’s credibility as he heads into global negotiations this December in Paris, where world leaders will try to limit warming to 2 degrees Celsius, which is regarded as the threshold for dangerous and potentially unmanageable climate change.

That number—2 degrees Celsius—is also the reason, however, I find Obama’s trip to the Arctic to be rather ironic. Scientists have argued that the world will not to be able to meet its target of limiting warming to 2 degrees Celsius, measured as a change in temperature since the industrial revolution, if we tap oil reserves in the Arctic. Yet, that’s exactly what the administration is allowing to happen.
...
This is all a numbers game, as McGlade and Ekins show. To meet international climate targets, the world only can burn about 1,000 gigatons of carbon. We’ve already burned through more than half of that carbon budget, and could finish it off in 30 years if things don’t change fast.

Given that context, the Obama Administration’s decision to allow Shell to start drilling for oil off the coast of Alaska makes us look like junkies on the search for the next hit.

That’s clearly not smart climate policy.

Better act fast, because Alaska is heating up muy rapido!! Hmmm, I wonder if this could have the tiniest, teeniest, eensie-weensiest bit to do with any local temperature rise???

Alaska already has warmed 1.7 degrees Celsius in the last 60 years, according to the U.S. National Climate Assessment. Wildfires have burned 5 million acres acres this year alone ...

Made It

Made it to the shore and back, weather was hot and dry, great weekend. I got introduced to cornholem, playing for the first time and spent plenty of time beer drinking, with occasional dips in the ocean. Major rip tides this weekend due to storm surges; nobody drowned but plenty of swimmers were pulled out by the currents and had be rounded up and towed in via a land line. Not me, I didn’t go in past waist deep. Looks like neon pink and orange are this season’s bikini colors. Dayum ... “shore” can be distracting. And long hair is back in too. Oh just stick a fork in me, I’m done. :happy sigh:

I haven’t been on a fluffy sand beach in ages. Trying to walk in hot dry sand that you sink nearly a foot into is difficult and exhausting. Especially while carrying half a ton of crap. And forget about trying to get in or out of one of these cut down beach chairs that are only 4” off the sand. No way. Give me a real chair or I’ll be stuck all day. My center of gravity seems to have shifted towards the middle as the years have gone by.

Went out dancing and drinking Saturday and stayed out until they closed the place. That’s after stopping off at two neighbor’s parties, and playing more cornhole in their backyards. Haven’t stayed till closing time at a bar in half a lifetime. Great band, place was packed, hot and sweaty, everyone covered with spilled beer. Shower time at 3am!! And of course the bar had it’s own illuminated cornhole courts. It’s ubiquitous!

Left mid-afternoon to beat the rush and then spent 2 hours in bumper to bumper traffic 6 lanes wide. But hey, we were moving, sometimes as fast as 25mph. Welcome to weekend beach traffic, Jersey style. I heard that later on traffic got heavy. Good news is, the Express Lanes folks had it just as bad as we did. Har har. Apparently you can’t use the Express Lanes unless you knuckle under and buy the EZ Pass automatic toll payer/car tracker thing the government sells. No thanks. We’d only use it a couple times per year. I’ll take my freedom instead thank you.

Work done, zoom. Fast trip to the grocery store, threw some chicken on the grill, taters and gravy. Good eats, now good night. Wake me when it’s Monday.

Oh ship, today’s Monday!! Made it to my new job with seconds to spare. Sat around and got paid for it. Sweet. The first hour went by quickly, learning where everything was, and sweeping the place out and all. Right, that took care of 50 minutes. Second hour dragged, but I talked a bit with the parents who drove their little angels to the school bus stop right there, and hung around until they were all safely on the bus for the 2.5 mile ride down the street and around the corner to the township elementary and middle schools. I was surprised school has started up already; it kicked off Thursday. Guess they get a longer year than we did. They certainly run later - 9 to 4, whereas we went 7:45 to 3. Right. Back to sweeping. Let’s knock some spider webs off the outside of the shack. Crivens, that was a little hornet’s nest, not a spiderweb. Run!!

Must remember to bring an AA battery and a can of bee spray to my guard shack tomorrow. And start looking around for a cheap folding lawn chair.

Christian Europe’s lost its courage - and its future.

It was never rocket science of course.  Anyone except people on the denial left could see it clearly.  The future.  Looking at the present when the present was say 4 years ago, and for some even earlier, they were seeing today as early as 2004.  And before that too.

Some idiot in a liberal paper today applauds the traitor Merkel of Germany, for suspending a couple of rules on immigration and welcoming into her country, as many as 800,000 over the next few years.  The writer says she has shamed Britain, apparently unaware this is an island.  Even tho he was born and raised here.

Anyway, there is nothing I can say to paint a word picture for you that would show just how bad and mad things not only have become, but continue to be.


Christian Europe’s lost its courage - and its future

By Peter Hitchens, Sunday Mail

So, the transformation of this country by mass migration, begun by New Labour to rub the Right’s nose in diversity, has now moved up a gear. One in eight of us was born abroad – and how long before that’s one in six, and then one in four?

These people are not (as I am) the children of British subjects born while overseas. They are people who have grown up in a different culture. Never before in our history have we faced the task of integrating a minority so large. Never before have we had such a feeble idea of what being British is.

And yet people ask me, as if the idea were absurd, why I think this will be a Muslim country within a couple of generations. I can think of no force or idea or movement or faith more likely to prosper in the state to come.

Like all other civilisations which lost their nerve and the will to live, European Christianity is destined to become a minority in its own territory. By the way, if you don’t like this, and voted Tory at the last Election, you have no business complaining.

I told you repeatedly that the Tory concern about immigration was faked. They don’t want the power to stop it.

Hitchens

kaboom

Our late season marigolds are just exploding. We grew them from seeds our neighbor had collected last year. Once the tulips and daffodils had fully died down in that plot we just threw seeds on the ground to see if any would grow. And they did, with a vengeance. The impatiens in the back are doing exceptionally well this year too. On the other side of the walkway the petunias are a huge lush pile, growing up the fence to chase the sun. Considering how dry it’s been, and how much of a fail the wildflower garden was, I’m happy to have something, even if they’re vary basic annuals.

Right. And I’m off to work. Had to rearrange the schedules, and we’re actually taking the weekend off to go to the beach. Oops, sorry, I live in New Jersey now. We’re going down the shore. And then I can do the rest of my weekend work Sunday night when we get back, but after that I’m going to shift the schedule permanently, so that I have weekends off.

See ya Monday, after I get home from my new job.

the meme of mom

image

A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard.

The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.

Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess.

A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall.

In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.

In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife.

He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.

He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.

As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor.

Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls.

As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel.

She looked up at him, smiled, and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’

She again smiled and answered, “You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day?”

“Yes,” was his incredulous reply.

She answered, “Well, today I didn’t do it.”

call them migrants or refugees if you want to. I see them as invaders

Authorities are trying to fingerprint arrivals, who do not want to be fingerprinted. And so, within the last week, migrants started throwing stones at border guards and police.  Somehow a major riot was avoided.

I suppose this mess will only be of interest to those living on this side of the Atlantic.
And mess it is.
The subject of course is illegal immigration.  For that matter, immigrants period.

Over the last few days the secret that wasn’t so big a surprise, was out.
The numbers are staggering, and yet the thick headed over here, keep bleating
on about how much immigrants contribute to the success of , blah,blah.  And people who worry about it or just come right out and say this island just can not take in so many are ….  bigots and racists.

Even Hungary is trying to stop the invasion across their borders. And they still come. In the thousands.  In fact … hundreds of thousands.  If you take the time to look at the photos and especially the video at the link below, what stands out most as you look?

The following is a must read.  As usual, Littlejohn has it right.
And so does Donald Trump, who Littlejohn quotes.


A country which won’t secure its borders isn’t a country at all.

At least there’s a small amount of good news this week. 
200 possibly more invaders were drowned and, the bodies of 71 invaders were found in the back of a truck that appeared abandoned.

RICHARD LITTLEJOHN: This has never been about race… 8million foreign newcomers is far too many for a small country like Britain to absorb
By Richard Littlejohn for the Daily Mail

Eight million. Doesn’t sound much, especially if you say it quickly. Sting’s just sold his Central London pad for £19 million.

Even that’s no big deal. Yesterday we learned that there are now 715,000 paper millionaires in Britain, thanks to the relentless rise in property prices.
When it comes to money, a million is increasingly meaningless. A round of drinks. The national debt is measured in trillions, not millions. The news bulletins bandy around billions every day, and we all just shrug.

But when it refers to people, not pounds, we really should sit up and take notice.
It has just been revealed that the number of people who were born abroad and are now living in Britain has hit a staggering 8.3 million.

That’s almost exactly the population of London, our capital city. Think about it. It’s an astonishing figure. Enough to fill Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium more than 100 times over.

This is a direct result of Labour’s cynical, politically-motivated decision to tear up our border controls and ‘scour the world for immigrants’, in the memorable words of the odious Peter Mandelson.

And despite the Tories’ broken promise — which they knew perfectly well they couldn’t possibly honour — to reduce the flow of migrants to the ‘tens of thousands’, still they keep coming.

Only yesterday, the Government tried to smuggle out under the radar the news that ‘net’ immigration last year was 330,000. That figure’s arrived at by subtracting the number of people leaving from the number arriving.

A huge demographic shift has taken place. In the past 15 years, Britain has been transformed beyond recognition, without the vast majority of the indigenous population ever having been consulted.

Do you honestly believe that any party which promised ‘Vote for us and we will import eight million immigrants by 2015’ would ever have got elected?
Let me state yet again, for the record, I don’t blame anyone for wanting to come to Britain to build a better life. But I do blame successive governments and the entire political and ‘liberal’ media class for encouraging them to settle here and then bovinely smearing as ‘racist’ anyone who questions the wisdom of mass immigration.

This has never been about race, although it is partly about religion and culture, especially when it comes to expansionist, extremist Islam. It’s always been primarily about numbers.

And eight million foreign newcomers is far too many for a small country like Britain to absorb.
Just look at the intolerable pressures on public services, such as health, housing and education. Yet despite the evidence of our own eyes, most people still find it difficult to get their heads round any figure which ends in half a dozen noughts.

There may be eight million stories in the naked city, but let’s concentrate on just one, which illustrates the insanity of our immigration and welfare system.

In order to silence public resistance to mass immigration, the ‘liberal’ establishment decided to redefine every illegal immigrant, economic migrant and tourist visa ‘overstayer’ as an ‘asylum seeker’.

Only a heartless, racist bigot could object to giving refuge to those genuinely fleeing oppression.

As a general rule, I’d agree. But consider the case of Lady Njaimeh Jawara, wife of a former president of Gambia. Actually, she is one of his three wives — since polygamy is legal in Gambia, where 90 per cent of the population are Muslims.

She was granted asylum in Britain after her husband was ousted by a military coup in 1994 and has been living here on benefits ever since.
Fair enough, you may say, since she would obviously be in mortal danger if she was forced to return home.
Er, not as such.

It turns out she regularly flies back to Gambia for as long as three months at a time.
Far from being in danger of arrest, imprisonment or worse, she is a keen golfer and a leading light in the Gambia Golf Association.

We only know this because Lady Jawara has just appeared in court in Sussex, where she pleaded guilty to a £20,000 benefit fraud.
She admitted illegally claiming £8,848 in housing benefit, £1,776 in assorted council tax benefits and £9,255 in pension credits.

The court in Worthing heard that she should have informed the authorities about her ‘prolonged absences’ from Britain, so that her benefits could be ‘temporarily’ suspended.
Hang on a minute. If Gambia is safe enough for her to return to play golf for weeks on end, why is she still here?

There is always a case for granting asylum when people are in danger. But surely that should be reviewed regularly and the right to remain should be revoked when it is considered safe for them to return.
Why has Lady Jawara been receiving benefits from the British taxpayer, and occupying a housing association flat which could be allocated to a British family, while jetting backwards and forwards to play golf?

And why were the British authorities happy for her to continue claiming ‘asylum’ here, provided she ‘temporarily’ stopped receiving benefits while she was strolling up the 18th fairway at Gambia’s answer to Gleneagles?

Especially when her husband is living out his retirement in a seaside resort on the Gambian coast.
OK, so she may have been at risk immediately after the coup, but she has been travelling freely to Gambia for at least the past seven years. Isn’t it time she was sent home permanently?

Supporters of open borders will no doubt accuse me of ‘racism’ and claim that this one case proves nothing.

What it does prove is that Britain’s ‘soft touch’ immigration controls and generous welfare system are a powerful magnet for migrants from all over the world.

There are hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of people from Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan and beyond wandering around Europe with no papers and no passports. And our EU ‘partners’ will continue to wave them in our direction.

At least 90 per cent are young men, many prepared to use extreme violence to get here illegally.

But have you noticed how the BBC and Channel 4 News always manage to interview one of the few women among them, who miraculously speaks perfect English?

They may be economic migrants, they may be genuine refugees, they may be Izal hitmen, like that nutter who tried to shoot up a French train last week.

We just don’t know. But once they’re here, like Gambia’s Lady Gaga, they’re here for good.
The chances of any of them being kicked out are close to zero. On Wednesday, a judge halted the deportation of 57 failed Afghan asylum seekers at the last minute. Well, it’s their yuman rites, innit.

You can rely on the courts and the rapacious immigration industry to thwart all attempts to restore sanity. The truth is the Government hasn’t got a clue what to do. As I wrote last week, Theresa May’s deal with the French over Calais isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.

Instead, ministers come up with daft, sticking-plaster solutions, such as fining employers who hire illegals. That should make all the difference.
While we remain in the EU and chained to the pernicious Human Rights Act (another broken Tory promise), we are powerless to prevent mass immigration, both from within and without Europe.

It’s pointless putting forward any proposals to stem the human tide and protect our borders, since the political will simply doesn’t exist.
Donald Trump, the U.S. presidential candidate, may be a rabble-rousing circus act, but he is surely correct when he says a country which won’t secure its borders isn’t a country at all.

The 8.3 million already here are only those we know about. How many are here illegally?
The Government can’t, or more likely won’t, say.

But getting on for 15 years ago, the then Commissioner of the Met told me he reckoned there were at least 300,000 people living in London the police knew nothing about.

What’s the score today? Your guess is as good as mine.

Meanwhile, it’s reported that 26 per cent of all births in Britain are to foreign-born mothers. Our overcrowded island is about to become even more claustrophobic.

David, now ‘Lord’ Blunkett, famously said when he was Home Secretary that he could see no upper limit to immigration.

So what will be the population in 20 or even 50 years’ time? Ninety million, a hundred million, one hundred and EIGHTY million!

Still, that’s the bad news. The good news, at least if you’re lucky enough to own your own home, is that all these people are going to need somewhere to live.

And that means property prices can only keep on going up.

This time next year, Rodney, we’ll all be millionaires. Then we can afford to emigrate.

Foreign migrants are like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? contestants. Every answer is ‘Britain’ and everyone’s a winner.
Can I bring a friend?

Pity no one ever asked the audience.

Maybe A Little Extra In The Mornings

In about 12 hours I should know Yes or No.

I’m trying to get another job.  An additional job I mean. 

Not much of a job, kind of like a Double Pretender. That’s where they pretend to pay you, and you pretend to work, right? Except that this job calls for me to just stand around for a couple hours every morning. Outside. And there’s a little heated shack for when the weather is poorly. Get paid to have my coffee. But even an extra $100 a week is ... another $100 a week. $87 after taxes. Every litter bit helps, right?

Update:  ... and it’s mine. For better money than I expected. Plus there will often be 3-10 hours of extra work available if I want it. Not always, but often.  So maybe this is more like $150/wk.  Fine by me. I start Monday morning.

By One Point

Well, that’s it for Summer Fun League.

We actually came together as a team last night. It was quite impressive. We bowled the same old team again, for the third week in a row. BORING. But instead of being the cranky old folks who got pushed around by some snot nosed kids, we did the pushing this time.  Ok, their team has a noob too, a guy who always uses the same squatted down approach but hasn’t figured out yet that it’s his hand position and follow through that actually aim the ball. So, with his wobbly paw, he throws the 7 pin or the left gutter, the 10 pin or the right gutter, and sometimes the ball goes down the middle to strike or hit a bunch of pins. And he hasn’t figured it out. Not my problem. When our noob started doing his lazy crap again, mindlessly tossing the ball down the lane to hit or miss by divine provenance, I took him aside. And I was pissed. “Listen up noob, I’m sick of your bullshit. You’ve had the entire summer to learn to bowl, and now it’s time to come through for the team. Pay attention to your body, swing straight, and start knocking down some pins. Otherwise I’m going to pimp slap the shit out of you with this steel hand brace I wear.” I guess I got his attention, because that was the last gutter ball he threw. He went on to bowl 15 to 20 over for each game. Well done.

Anchor girl and I both got in attack mode and ate up the lanes, throwing the deuce or better. I took the high game with a 226 and she wasn’t far behind me with a 221.  When there was a drama situation - the scoring computer failed for our lanes only, shutting off the alley and the overhead monitors halfway through the first game, and then finally coming on with a blank screen ... I held a little meeting and talked them all through it; not our fault, let the employees find the solution, don’t get worried get angry or just let it slide, let someone else deal with it for once, blahblahblah. And that worked.  Now let’s go kick some ass.

End result: we destroyed them. Took the first game by 45, took the second game by 78, took the third game by 118. And by taking all 7 points, we pushed them over the cliff so that they fell from 3rd to 6th, and we bubbled up to 3rd, missing 2nd place by a single point. Nice. So we didn’t win the league, but we did get that little bit of extra cash in our prize money envelope. First place paid $35 per person, second paid $32.50, third paid $30. Summer League is a loss leader; the prize money is a joke because the weekly dues are just barely more than linage.

Winter Fun League starts on 9/11.

“somebody very weakened physically, as if he suffered from malnutrition” lawyer for gunman

French train gunman LAUGHS as he denies terrorism and says he found his guns in a children’s playground...while his father says he is ‘a good boy’ who’d never kill anyone

· Ayoub El Khazzani, 26, has denied accusations he attempted a terror attack
· The suspect’s father, in Spain, insists he ‘cannot believe’ his son is a terrorist
· Claims he found his arsenal of weapons by chance under a bush in a park
· He ‘burst onto a carriage on high-speed train to Paris waving a Kalashnikov’

By Nick Fagge In Paris, France For Mailonline and Gerard Couzens In Algeciras, Spain For Mailonline

OK, That’s the headline this morning.
His lawyer (yeah, he has one already) had this to say, among some other things.

We should see the mouth pieces in the very same light we view all terrorists.

“I saw somebody who was very sick, somebody very weakened physically, as if he suffered from malnutrition, very, very thin and very haggard.
Suspect’s lawyer, Sophie David”

continued at source


And his daddy had this to say and who to blame.

‘I’m still in shock and haven’t even told my wife Zahara yet who is in Morocco visiting relatives and won’t be back until later this week.’
He added: ‘There was no work for him here and it’s the only reason he went [to France].

‘You should ask them why they’re doing that to young people, selling them empty promises and then dumping them on the street.’

Speaking in broken Spanish despite his six years in the southern Spanish port of Algeciras, he added: ‘My son a terrorist? The only terrorism he is guilty of is terrorism for bread because he hasn’t got enough money to feed himself properly.’

I have nothing else to add.

Wait one. Yes I do.

I screwed up earlier. I did have something to add.  This has not been my greatest week, and the following isn’t all I’ve misplaced.
Anyway ... Below is something I wanted all to see and missed uploading earlier.
This appeared in a liberal paper.  And believe it or not, not even the most left wing there is here.
But it illustrates why I think Europe is lost. Not because most of them think this way, but because the ones who do are also the ones pulling all the strings.

Liberals? Very dangerous. You go first.

No Moral Compass

Actor John Rhys-Davies on the worldwide onslaught against Christianity and Western Culture.

“There is an extraordinary silence in the West,” said Rhys-Davies on Adam Carolla’s podcast posted Monday night. “Basically, Christianity in the Middle East and in Africa is being wiped out — I mean not just ideologically but physically, and people are being enslaved and killed because they are Christians. And your country and my country are doing nothing about it.”
...
“This is a unique age. We don’t want to be judgmental,” said Rhys-Davies, who’s also known for his role in the Indiana Jones franchise. “Every other age that has come before us has believed exactly the opposite. I mean, T.S. Eliot referred to ‘the common pursuit of true judgment.’ Yes. That’s what it’s about. Getting our judgments right.”
...
“It’s an age where politicians don’t actually say what they believe,” said Rhys-Davies. “They are afraid of being judged as being partisan. Heaven forbid that we should criticize people who, after all, share a different value system. ‘But it’s all relevant. It’s all equally relative. We’re all the same. And God and the devil, they’re the same, aren’t they, really? Right and wrong? It’s really just two faces of the same coin,’ “ he said, mocking what he sees as politically correct doctrine.

“We have lost our moral compass completely, and, unless we find it, we’re going to lose our civilization. I think we’re going to lose Western European Christian civilization, anyway,” said Rhys-Davies.

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.
