Unfit to serve

Harry Reid (and the Democrats) have sunk to new lows, "I believe ... that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week," Reid told journalists. And yet Mr. Reid supports legislation that would "phase out" American participation in the war in Iraq over twelve to eighteen months.
First of all I do not believe the war is lost at all and if politicians like Mr. Reid would stop aiding and abetting the enemy we could win in short order. Mr. Reid's pronouncements that "the war is lost" cannot have a good affect on those brave American soldiers currently serving in Iraq and the majority leader of the United States Senate is spreading enemy propaganda, which if it is not treason it should be.
If Mr. Reid truly believes that the war is lost then the only morally defensible position for him to take is an immediate cutoff of funds to run the war. If "the war is lost" we should not spend any more American lives or capital on a losing venture. Mr. Reid knows that the American people would not stand for an abandonment of our troops while they are in harm's way but he does not have the guts to do the right thing. He is unfit to serve.

Kevin Willis was wrong!

Okay, Kevin Willis is RARELY WRONG but he was wrong on this one.

In regards to the Winkler trial, Kevin opined in the 'comments' section: For her sake, I hope she has pictures. Pictures are worth a zillion words, and if she has some record of physical abuse, it'll be a lot more likely to sway the jury than to say "he was mean".

But, judging from the Voluntary Manslaughter verdict, that's all it took. Pout. He was being mean to me so I killed him. Pout. I ask you: Who the hell was being abused in that relationship, the woman or the dead guy?


I hereby declare this blog a SYMPATHY FREE ZONE for 'abused women.' Don't come to this blog and apologize for 'abused women.'

What 'abused women' with 'controlling' husbands need, is to grow the f*k up and take control of their own lives. I think if you want to help an abused woman, treat her with a healthy dose of contempt.

Is it okay to kill a preacher?

The media are consumed with the shooting at Virginia Tech, but I'm more interested in the obscene murder trial of Mary Winkler, accused of killing her husband, Matthew, a preacher.

Mary Winkler has taken the stand to say that the only way she could speak to her husband was at the point of a gun. He was very critical of her. But mostly, he was a preacher. He merited death.

I'll give her one thing, he had really bad taste in women.

No Jesus in Democrat Easter Message

Is anyone surprised that the anti-Jesus Democrats wished us all a happy liberal bunny day as an Easter Message?

No mention of Jesus. No mention of the resurrection. Those are bad words to the Democrat National Committee.

But, in the defense of the Democrats, there are so few Christians left in the Democrat party, maybe they just don't know that Jesus is more than a swear word.

The aristocracy

"The principal feature of American liberalism is sanctimoniousness. By loudly denouncing all bad things — war and hunger and date rape — liberals testify to their own terrific goodness. More important, they promote themselves to membership in a self-selecting elite of those who care deeply about such things.... It's a kind of natural aristocracy, and the wonderful thing about this aristocracy is that you don't have to be brave, smart, strong or even lucky to join it, you just have to be liberal."
PJ O'Rourke

Thanks BARedneck

Here is what the liberals really think

"I know for a fact, whenever I passed a TV or newspaper with a report on the ensuing US war to capture Osama bin Laden, and I secretly said to myself, "Go, Osama, Go!" I am happy he has eluded capture by the Americans. I am in love with those Afghans who, whenever asked, said, "He went that-a-way," and their fifty hands pointed in fifty different directions."

Kevin Potvin

Thanks Hoosier Boy

My only comfort is that Osama bin Laden and his boys will eventually get around to bombing Kevin's favorite gay bar.

We're all gonna die!

Of course you all saw it on Drudge. I chuckle. What if this bee thing were real? How could we possibly know it from all the Cry Wolf stories in the last 50 years? We're all gonna die for sure!

Be afraid be very afraid

For the first time in my life I find myself in agreement with Rosie O'Donnell. It is not that I watch her make a fool of herself on a daily basis on "The View", but I do hear quotes from her in various other media. I am referring of course to her response to the Don Imus debacle, Rosie opined that the speech police were here and would be coming after her next. For the first time in a long while Ms. O'Donnell actually made sense to me.
I have heard that certain "conservative" websites are indeed calling for Ms. O'Donnell to be fired and I believe that they have every right to do just that, however I must caution against political correctness movements of any stripe.
Don Imus was indeed almost as liberal as Rosie. I watched him on M.S.N.B.C. every chance I got simply because he had great musical guests, but I found myself muting the sound or flipping the channel when he had some of his mainstream reporter friends on (which included almost every N.B.C. reporter there was, including Tim Russert, and David Gregory). He regularly referred to Vice President Cheney as a "war criminal", endorsed and campaigned for John Kerry in 2004. Rosie has reason to fear; Someone on her side of the political spectrum has been taken down.
The day after the firing of Mr. Imus was announced however, the odious Keith Olberman came out with his list of those he thought should be fired for "hateful speech." Surprise, surprise. They were all conservatives. How can Mr. Olberman not know that he himself is on many a list of people to be fired by the speech police?
Isn't it time we grew up and accepted responsibility for what we listen to or choose to view? If the language on a radio show offends me, I don't listen. If a certain movie or T.V. show offends me, I don't watch. If the lyrics of a song offend me, I don't buy it. I do not start a boycott. I do not protest in the street. I do not demand that certain people be fired. I choose to let the market place weed out those who do not measure up. Someone said what about the children? THAT IS WHAT PARENTS ARE FOR !
As Rosie O'Donnell said the "speech police are coming. Can the thought police be far behind?"

The new Anti-Christians become militant; arm themselves

If it seems to you that the Democrat base, led by Hollywood loudmouths like Bill Mahr, have suddenly become virulently anti-Christian, you'd be correct. Right now they are satisfied with ridicule.

The people who once might have shrugged and said "I'm not religious" or maybe "I don't believe that stuff" have, in the last year or so, taken on a dramatic new attitude. They are now anti-Christians, not merely unbelievers but aggressively, militantly anti-Christian. They don't want to ignore Christianity. They want to kill it off.

Atheists prepare for the 'final battle'
In Europe, the anti-Christian movement has given rise to militant hedonists which, according toThe Wall Street Journal Thursday (unfortunately the article is not available free online), are being whipped up into a frenzy of hatred of religion. The new high priest, Michel Onfray attracts huge crowds and extolls the atheists to take up arms and fight the final battle against religion. Thankfully, they also want to fight Islam. But they plan to take the Christians with them.

If you want to see the Vatican, I'd say you have less than 10 years to do it. If the Muslims don't take it down, the former Christians will.

In the U.S., the Democrat faithful are being taught to be atheists. This process should take a few years, I'd think. (The elite of the base are already there; they have to take it slower with the working folks). The militancy of the movement is slowed down by the peaceniks involved in the atheist movement, but they are more committed to destroying America through peace than they are committed to peace itself. In short: The nonviolence crowd will oh-so-easily become violent. Fortunately, we are already armed.

I think the U.S. Democrats will go after Christians first, before they realize their real enemy is the Muslims. But in Europe, Christians and Christian symbols will be easy targets for the first wave of ridicule followed by violence.

Given the success of anti-Christian movements during the history of this country, I have to ask myself: Were the Founding Fathers wrong? Freedom of religion seems only to work with Christians, who have always allowed competing philosophies.

Finding a housekeeper, Part X

When last we left the housekeeper saga, I fired my housekeeper because

1.) She was on welfare and since I was already paying her to lay around, I didn't think I should also pay her to clean my house. I mean, she should clean my house for free, and

2.) she was planning to sue her landlord whose only crime was to own property that he foolishly let her and the government rent. I was on his side.

Since then, I've been through, God only knows how many, housekeepers. I had one I paid $11 an hour for 7 hours of work on my home and business each week. She quit because I didn't pay her enough. I called her up and said: Hell, just tell me how much you want... I'LL PAY! But to no avail. That was a tough loss.

Then I had a parade of people who worked for me once, at $15 an hour. One was a divorced mother getting by on child support and welfare. I fed the girl lunch, and complimented her on marginal work, wrote her a check for $82.50 and she didn't show up the next week!


So yesterday I called an ad I saw in the paper for MIRACLE HOUSECLEANING. I'm thinking I don't need a miracle, I just need the vacuum run and the floor swept -- Come to think of it, I guess that would be a miracle.

The girl came over in her brand new SUV, checked out the house and office and quoted $45 -- a bargain! Had me sign papers, explained that her children are on welfare (SHE'S DRIVING A BRAND NEW SUV) and this was her new business. Told me I'd see her at 9:30 am today.

It's 10 am. SHE ISN'T HERE! Guess the welfare checks came or something.

UPDATE: 11 am -- SHE'S HERE! Only 1.5 hours late for her first day on the job!

UPDATE: My new housekeeper did a very good job. Of course, she left in the middle of it to pick up her daughter and stayed gone for damn near two hours, thus stretching out her 4 hour job with me to 8 hours. But the joint got vacuumed and I didn't have to do it. I wonder if she'll show up next week? And... at what time? You know these starving Welfare mothers... you know how they struggle to fill their SUVs with gas and the like... it takes time out of the day.

What a dumbass

" In other words, Ms. Pelosi not only misrepresented Israel's position but was virtually alone in failing to discern that Mr. Assad's words were mere propaganda."
