You In A Heap Of Trouble, Boy

Pigeons falling from the sky prompted a hospital in Schenectady, N.Y., to close its emergency room and call in a hazardous materials team.

They closed off the ER for several hours out of fear that one of the falling birds would hit someone. A hazmat official said, "Birds were coming down like divebombers."

The hospital had hired a professional exterminator to rid the roof of pigeons. Authorities said they'll check to see if the proper amount of pesticide was used.
Proper amount of pesticude?

So, if the exterminator used an "improper" amount to kill the birds, will he be facing some sort of charge?

"We Want It To Stop Now"

"We want it to stop now". So say Bush and Blair, the two men most responsible for the last four years of death and destruction in the Middle East.

Why? Can't anybody else start up a war of their own without the permission of the WOTT? (War On Terror Twins)

What's the use of being the leader of any nation if you can't stir up a little conflict every now and again?

Bush and Blair are just being plain selfish!

Innocent By Reason Of Insanity


We need to change the law on this sort of thing.

Nobody will ever be found guilty of killing those five children since their mother and murderer, Andrea Yates, has been found "innocent" by reason of insanity.

What we need to do with people who claim insanity as a defense is try them for the crime, establish their guilt or innocence, and if found guilty, have another trial to find if they are insane or not.

U.S.S. Liberty Revisited

Remember the USS Liberty? The American vessel shot up by the Jews during the 1967 war? Israel claimed the attack was a tragic accident, but subsequent investigation proved the Jews did not want any witnesses to what they were doing at the time so they attacked a United States vessel, killing 34 of the crew. They have never apologized, they have never made restitution. The Jews -- like children caught with their hands in the cookie jar -- contuinue to loudly deny the obvious.

Before you go off deep end with some Israeli supporting tirade, read just a few comments by American leaders about the USS Liberty attack:
The Israeli government, the AntiDefamation League, and
certain notorious apologists for Israel insist that the attack was
a tragic accident and that the US government accepts that assertion.
Not so. Virtually every knowledgeable American official with
the lone exception of Robert McNamara is on public record
calling the attack deliberate and the Israeli story untrue.
Here are a few of those American leaders.
"I was never satisfied with the Israeli explanation. . . . Through diplomatic channels we refused to accept their explanations. I didn't believe them then, and I don't believe them to this day. The attack was outrageous "
-- US Secretary of State Dean Rusk

"...the board of inquiry (concluded) that the Israelis knew exactly what they were doing in attacking the Liberty."
-- CIA Director Richard Helms

"I can tell you for an absolute certainty (from intercepted communications) that the Israelis knew they were attacking an American ship."
-- NSA Deputy Director Oliver Kirby

"That the Liberty could have been mistaken for the Egyptian supply ship El Quseir is unbelievable"
-- Special Assistant to the President Clark Clifford, in his report to President Lyndon Johnson

"The highest officials of the [Johnson] administration, including the President, believed it 'inconceivable' that Israel's 'skilled' defense forces could have committed such a gross error."
-- Lyndon Johnson's biographer Robert Dallek in Flawed Giant, Oxford University Press, 1998, pp. 430-31)

"A nice whitewash for a group of ignorant, stupid and inept [expletive deleted]."
-- Handwritten note of August 26, 1967, by NSA Deputy Director Louis W. Tordella reacting to the Israeli court decision exonerating Israelis of blame for the Liberty attack.

"Never before in the history of the United States Navy has a Navy Board of Inquiry ignored the testimony of American military eyewitnesses and taken, on faith, the word of their attackers.
-- Captain Richard F. Kiepfer, Medical Corps, US Navy (retired), USS Liberty Survivor

"The evidence was clear. Both Admiral Kidd and I believed with certainty that this attack...was a deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew.... It was our shared belief. . .that the attack. . .could not possibly have been an accident.... I am certain that the Israeli pilots [and] their superiors. . .were well aware that the ship was American."
-- Captain Ward Boston, JAGC, US Navy (retired), senior legal counsel to the US Navy Court of Inquiry

That the attack was deliberate "just wasn't a disputed issue" within the National Security Agency
-- Former NSA Director retired Army Lieutenant General William Odom on 3 March 2003 in an interview for Naval Institute Proceedings

Former NSA/CIA Director Admiral Bobby Inman "flatly rejected" the Cristol/Israeli claims that the attack was an accident
-- 5 March 2003 interview for Naval Institute Proceedings

Of four former NSA/CIA seniors with inside knowledge, none was aware of any agency official who dissented from the position that the attack was deliberate
-- David Walsh, writing in Naval Institute Proceedings

"It appears to me that it was not a pure case of mistaken identity."
-- Captain William L. McGonagle, Commanding Officer, USS Liberty, speaking at Arlington National Cemetery, June 8, 1997

"To suggest that they [the IDF] couldn't identify the ship is ... ridiculous. ... Anybody who could not identify the Liberty could not tell the difference between the White House and the Washington Monument."
-- Admiral Thomas Moorer, Chief of Naval Operations and later Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff, quoted in The Washington Post, June 15, 1991, p. 14

Well, there you are.

Now, the Jews have attacked a UN outpost and killed two of the observers stationed there, in what no doubt will be trumpeted by the Likes of Wolf Blitzer and other Jewish apologists as another "tragic mistake".

History points us all to another answer.

If the Jews are once again conducting the slaughter of innocent civilians -- something they have shown a great talent for -- this time in Lebanon, attacking and knocking out the UN observation post makes great sense. The dead tell no tales.

Those Darned Unexpected Heart Attacks

Kathy Augustine, dead at fifty.

She has earned the unfortunate distinction of being the only constitutional officer in Nevada history ever to be impeached and convicted.

After conviction, she kept her job as Nevada's top finance official. She did not step down as expected, even after her misconduct cost her the support of many colleagues and the state Republican Party.

Many had expected her to step down, to remove herself from office after her conviction, but she refused to do so.

As a result, she was becoming the poster child for today's typical politician. Embarrassment, shame, convictions of wrong-doing, all mean little or nothing. For so many politicians only the power, the position and the perks is all that matters.

They say she was healthy, upbeat, and running for yet another government position when she apparently died of a sudden heart attack.

Right. However, it would be a good idea to remember that heart attacks can be very handy things when a very large political embarrassment refuses to go away.

Worn Out Fairy Tales

Fouad Siniora, the prime minister of Lebanon, said "My country has been torn to shreds... Israel must pay for the barbaric destruction..." as the death toll in Lebanon passed 300 civilian dead, 1,000 wounded, with over a half million homeless.

To the contrary, says columnist Lawrence Kudlow, "Israel is doing the Lord's work."

Pardon my language, but what absolute crap.

It's just another part of that "chosen people" fantasy the Jews have created and so successfully palmed off onto the Christians... but only the Christians.

People who still believe that obvious fairy tale should not be allowed out in public without a responsible adult supervisor.

Those "Fargin' Towel Heads"

I read and sometimes make comment in a blog that is written by an admitted "born again" Christian, an independently rich writer who considers himself far above the intellectual norm. In spite of all that, he does write well, and often makes comments about world situations and conditions that are well worth reading.

An interesting thing is apparantly many of it's most faithful regulars seem to be bonafide dyed-in-the-wool ultimate right-wing highly religious rednecks, devoted fans of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

They are great name-callers, and one of them referred to those "Fargin' Towel Heads" in a recent post, joined by another regular using the term "Little Sheet-heads" to help define those whom they consider their enemies.

A particularity apt example of their conversational norm is:
"You anti-Israel monkeys...Tell me that those fargin' towel heads did not bring this on themselves..."
I responded with the below comments:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If the 1948 UN Resolution that created the modern State of Israel smack in the middle of Arab territory hadn't happened, then just maybe the "fargin' towel heads" wouldn't be taking pot shots at them today.

UN R181 didn't mention God as a cause or reason to dole out Arab territory to the Jews. It was an international attempt to stop the bloodshed being caused by Jewish terrorism against the Arabs in the Middle East during this period. How many of you have forgotten that it was the Jews who were the terrorists in the 30's and 40's?

To hear a person say that they can't prove what they believe, but that their "faith" makes them believe -- and then act according to that belief -- is more than a bit disconcerting. This is exactly how a lot of humanity's greatest pain and misery throughout our history has been justified... over conflicting religious beliefs.

This endless Middle East disaster is a perfect example as to what happens when religion of any stripe takes over a government anywhere and decides to use war and national muscle as a method to spread their particular version of truth.

Our ultimate survival may well depend on men of reason and purpose putting religion back into the churchs, synagogues and mosques and get their always one-sided faith-based form of decision-making out of government everywhere.

Religious freedom is one thing, a government supported religious tyranny is quite another.

America -- in part -- was created to eliminate state supported religious tyranny, while at the same providing an atmosphere of tolerance for religious freedom, free from all government interference.

Supporting either side in this middle East religious war violates the very core of those founding principles.

Israel was, and is, a State created by religion in the same sense that Vatican City was created by religion. Israel is a wholly religious entity, expressing only one view of truth, enforced by government might.

As an American, you are free to support Israel or not as you see fit, but our government is not.

By allowing our federal government to support only one side of this religious war, we have created countless more fanatical enemies and have invited disaster on ourselves and our children, as evidenced by 911 and other acts against us.

So not only have the "fargin towel heads" brought it on themselves... so have we.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

No doubt such a post will only further inflame these literary giants, but one has to try to drag these 12th century crusaders into our present reality if we're ever going to solve this Middle East calamity.

Not Again!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice intends to travel to the Middle East to help calm tensions in a region where Israel has been bombarding Lebanon for days and the militant group Hizbollah has been firing rockets into the Jewish state.

Good grief, how stupid can we get... and stay?

Rice is a member of a race that Zionists consider as nothing more than a readily available pool of "slaves and servants", and as a female, carries absolutely no weight with Arab and Muslim leaders. She is invisible to both sides and is tolerated only because she is backed by a super power.

All we ever get from her "visits" is photographs of her and uncomfortable looking mid-level dignitaries... all with forced smiles for the camera, after which nothing positive ever happens.

We might as well send over Mary Poppins.

I have noting against Rice, other than the fact that she -- by virtue of race and sex -- can never accomplish anything over there, even with the full force of the Bushite federal government behind her... pushing.

2 Trillion Barrels Of Oil

This from WND:
1,000 feet beneath the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world — more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. Three companies have been chosen to lead the way, and test drilling has already begun.
Here are the official estimates:

8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
18-times as much oil as Iraq
21-times as much oil as Kuwait
22-times as much oil as Iran
500-times as much oil as Yemen

Ok, good news. But this stuff is all under government owned land. When will Bush and crowd start this oil flowing? And how much will this all-American oil cost us? How rich will the Bush family become?

I have always believed that the feds had a policy to pump the Middle East bone dry and then use our own oil supplies, while at the same time dropping the Middle East like the hot potato it really is.

Now I'm thinking that Bush and the republicians will let this American oil flow just before the next presidental election, and at much lower prices than the world standard.

So cheer up America! Cheaper gas is just a presidental election away!

Oh, and by the way... that does NOT include the billions and billions of barrels we have locked away in our western deposits of shale oil.

Russian Troops On Israeli Soil?

President Vladimir Putin said Monday that Russia would consider contributing troops to an international peacekeeping force in the Middle East if the United Nations approves its deployment.

That's a mouthful of nothing really. The UN has repeatedly attempted to deploy UN peacekeepers to the Middle East, but the United States has always vetoed the attempt, and it only takes one veto.

Putin knows that, so he's just mouthing platitudes for his Arab fans.

Decisions, Decisions: Dead-End Job, Or Babies?

This from The Independent:
Girls as young as 13 decide that parenting offers a better life than dead-end jobs, says new report.

By Sophie Goodchild and Jonathan Owen
Published: 16 July 2006

Teenage girls who get pregnant are deliberately "planning" to become mothers in the belief that a baby will improve the quality of their lives.

An extensive study published today reveals that girls as young as 13 are making a "career choice" by deciding to have children, since they see parenting as preferable to working in a dead-end job.

The findings from the Trust for the Study of Adolescence challenges the assumption that schoolgirl mothers are all irresponsible adolescents who are ignorant about using contraception. The revelation that teenage girls are actively choosing motherhood is backed up by official figures obtained by this paper which show that nearly a quarter of pregnancies to under 18s are second children.
They further say that "... ministers have rejected the report's suggestion that teenage pregnancy can be a positive option, saying it invariably leads to "negative consequences for all concerned". Surprise, surprise.

Look out Wal-Mart, you may be having a labor shortage soon.

And all you horny little studlies out there that may think this is a growing opportunity for an unprotected sex gala need to know that a large part of these young Moms demand that the Dad's be there for support and assistance, 100%.

Israel And Our Oil Prices

The price of oil briefly surpassed $78 a barrel Friday and finished 4 percent higher for the week after Israeli attacks against Lebanese militants stoked fears of a wider Middle East conflict and possible oil-supply disruption.

OK, just how much oil comes out of Lebanon or Israel? Damn little, so watching the Jews and the Arabs play out Chapter who-knows-what in their endless little turf war shouldn't really affect the world price of oil too much. So why does it?

We are told stuff like:
"The run-up in oil raised concerns about inflation and the economy at large, sending stock prices tumbling"
or bovine excreata like:
"OPEC has tried to reassure the market by stressing its commitment to "order and stability," but at the same time said it "has no influence" over the geopolitical turmoil underlying today's volatility."
However, OPEC does have every sort of influence of the cost of oil. They can change the cost of oil at any time and for any reason, because they control the huge Middle Eastern oil infrastructure ironically built by American dollars.

The world's largest user of crude oil for decades has been the United States. Israel's only reason for it's continued existence in the Middle East has been the total support given it by the United States federal government... militarily, financially, politically, along with it's veto power on the United Nations Security Council.

The Arabs and Muslims don't have a super-power type military. They can't match the American-provided Israeli military muscle... but they do control the crude oil spigot.

The connection becomes obvious. When the Jews -- fully supported by the American federal government -- start shoving Arabs around more than usual, OPEC cranks up the oil prices. The cost of oil has become their major weapon in their fight against the Jew, one that is in the process of bankrupting America. One plus one is invariably two, no matter what you've been told to believe... or want to believe.

It should be obvious that us ordinary Americans are paying the real price for this Jewish land-grab in the Middle East. It is American skyscrapers that have been destroyed by Palestinian sympathizers. It is American sons and daughters that are dying by the thousands in Afghanistan and Iraq, Muslim strongholds full of yet more sympathizers. It is American tanks, aircraft, warships and rockets in the hands of the Israeli military that is continually raining death on Arabs and Muslims in the Middle East.

Thousands of American lives have been lost, Billions and billions of American dollars spent on this millennia-old conflict between Jew and Muslim over a small patch of desert that both want, in which both sides are supported by nothing more than the beliefs provided by conflicting religious dogma.

And what is the price Israel has paid in the last decade? In comparison, nothing. Some property damaged by a few crude rockets, a few people wounded or killed, some soldiers captured.

Our federal government and our media continue to tell us that oil prices have nothing to do with the Jewish occupation of Palestine. The cost of gas at the pump tells us otherwise.

The looming world conflict being generated by the use of oil as a weapon against America and Israel is one that will be caused by the refusal of other nations to accept an economy-destroying cost of oil. The dismal reality is that if we don't put a stop to this insanity, the rest of the world will.

As I have said before, it matters not to me who wins this fight for a few thousand acres of sand. What I want is to see it ended, so the rest of the world can back away from the coming disastrous confrontation this religious conflict is bringing about, the so-called "War of Civilizations".

So, go ahead America, enjoy the all new record-smashing costs of a gallon of gas, the thousands of American lives lost, the billions and billions wasted on a millennia old religious war, but be sure to send the Jews a thank-you note -- along with many more taxpayer dollars -- this Christmas.

And learn to whistle in the dark.

Bush, the Answer Man

President Bush has just told the world why we have violence in the Middle East today. He said the reason was because Hezbollah was shooting rockets into Israel.

So there you are... Bush has spoken.

He sort of failed to mention that the reason Hezbollah was shooting rockets into Israel was because in 1948 the Jews invaded and occupied a large chunk of Arab territory, displacing over 750,000 Arabs in the process, using their particular version of religious mythology as an excuse.

The indigenous population of the area -- now called Palestinians -- don't believe all this Jewish stuff about how the Jews are God's chosen people, or how God gave them the patch of sand known as the present day Israel a long time ago.

And they want it back. They want their farms, their orchards, their houses, their villages and their land back.

That's the real reason we have violence in the Middle East.

The "Big Dig" Gets Shut Down

Are any of you still surprised?

Associated Press Writer
Inspectors on Thursday quadrupled to 240 the number of possible ceiling bolt problems in a Big Dig tunnel where a woman was crushed by falling concrete, a still-closed section at the center of Gov. Mitt Romney's push to oversee the safety of the troubled project.

The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority said inspectors found additional bolt assemblies that were separating from 3-ton concrete roof panels, raising the number of defects over previous inspections that found 60 defects. The earlier defects were enough for officials to order a sweeping review of every roadway, tunnel and bridge in Boston's entire highway system.
Reminds me of a a well covered-up little highway scandal in New Mexico many years back... a repaving contractor shorted a quarter-inch of asphalt on ninety miles of road. Didn't hurt the road much, but the contractor pocketed a lot of extra cash, minus what he paid off the inspectors with.

Shaving on quantity or quality is a great American business tactic, but doing it with the bolt assemblies that hold up a concrete roof is just plain stupid.

Of course, you and I will never know for sure, and nobody will ever go to jail, but somebody made some extra money on this "Big Dig" where they shouldn't have.

Greed in action is a marvelous thing to behold.

Time Magazine's Late But Welcome R.I.P.

Time Magazine has announced "The End of Cowboy Diplomacy".

Says Drudge:
In the span of four years, the Bush Administration has been forced to rethink the pre-emptive "Bush doctrine" by which it hoped to remake the world, as the strategy's ineffectiveness was exposed by the very policies it prescribed, TIME's Mike Allen and Romesh Ratnesar report in this weeks cover story on 'The End of Cowboy Diplomacy' on newsstands Monday, July 9th.
Referred to as the "swaggering Commander in Chief", the article says that Bush's approach fit with Bush's personal style, his self-professed proclivity to dispense with the nuances of geopolitics and go with his gut.

"Go with his gut". That would be a gut full of tacos and enchiladas, garnered with a hot, spicy salsa, the pre-eminent mixture on which to make world-shaking decisions.

What we all need now is for this swaggering, go-with-my-gut drugstore cowboy to ride off into the sunset, and take his herd of neocon range scruff with him.

The Kansas City Southern RR goes WAY South

Plans are afoot to make Kansas City an "inland port" to be called the Kansas City SmartPort".

WND has reported that Kansas City SmartPort plans to utilize deep-sea Mexican ports such as Lazaro Cardenas to unload containers from China and the Far East as part of the North American Free Trade Agreement super-highway plan. WND obtained, via a Missouri Sunshine Law request, an internal spreadsheet analysis prepared by the port project,

The North American Free Trade Agreement super-highway plan?

Supposedly, all the containers unloaded in the Mexican port(s) will be shipped via railroad -- The Kansas City Southern RR -- and not on Mexican trucks. The LC to KC corridor is a rail corridor ONLY they claim, but hidden deep in the document is plans for truck traffic... Mexican trucks. Adding some fuel to this fire is the fact that the Kansas City Southern acquired the Mexican railroad that served the port of Lazaro Cardenas last year.

What are a few of the things wrong with this picture?

First, we already have sufficient container ports, railroads and highways to handle our container traffic. So why a Mexican corridor? Cheap labor that doesn't need to sneak across our borders comes to mind.

Secondly, containers scheduled to be inspected in this "Kansas City SmartPort" leaves hundreds of miles of railroad inside America where a short stop by any train can result in the unloading of whatever type of contraband you may ever wish for.... Drugs, illegals, terrorists, even a few A-bombs.

Additionally, containers offloaded in Mexico will not be subject to inspection by American authorities, so containers with whatever nasty stuff that would have been detected in American ports will enter Mexico without problem, with the contents being later ferried across our wide-open borders at any future time or place.

It will also allow for Mexican trucks on our highways. Hundreds of them. Uninspected and uninsured, accidents waiting to happen, with drivers that you -- given the chance -- would avoid like the plague.

To me, this deal looks bad from every angle.


Fifty-five million five hundred thousand dollars. Not a bad first day's take for a pirate who wears eye shadow.

That's the largest opening day in Hollywood history, and yet another lesson about how the critics still don't have a clue on what the public likes.

North Korea's Big Bad Missile

This little jewel from Korea Watch (
A grand test to see if current technology can bring down north Korea's super missile failed. However, there is no reason to cry over missed missiles, since north Korea's super missile, the TaePoDong 2, does not exist.
Prior to her defection to south Korea, Kim Kil Song was a much sought after technical writer at the Number 2 Natural Science Institute in north Korea. This institute provides the technical expertise, planning, testing, and development of many north Korean weapon systems, including north Korea's missiles.

According to Kim, development of north Korea's HwaSong 6(Taepodong 2) missile started in 1987 after Kim Jong Il gave on-the-spot guidance to the Number 2 Natural Science Institute saying that - "If we can develop this, we have nothing to fear. Even the American bastards won't be able to bother us. Whether we live or die, we must quickly develop the HwaSong 6."

Mrs. Kim says that north Korea does not have the funds, technology, or expertise to develop a missile with the capabilities attributed to the Taepodong 2. "It would seem impossible for north Korea to, in such a short time, complete development of the Hwasong 7(Taepodong 2)," according to a press report published by the Joongang Ilbo's North Korea Net
Well now. I suppose it is too much to expect the Bush gang to be aware of this, but they most likely are, so it looks like they're just shaking the old fear stick again in yet another attempt to keep us all worried and compliant.

One other thing... North Korea has not yet demonstrated the capability to produce a re-entry vehicle, something vitally critical if you don't want your payload to burn up during re-entry, even from a sub-orbital flight.

This from the
Britons see US as vulgar empire builder
By Ben Fenton
Filed: 03/07/2006

Most Britons see America as a cruel, vulgar, arrogant society, driven by class and racism, crime-ridden, obsessed with money and led by an incompetent hypocrite.

More than two-thirds who offered an opinion said America is essentially an imperial power seeking world domination. And 81 per cent of those who took a view said President George W Bush hypocritically championed democracy as a cover for the pursuit of American self-interests.
Imagine that. And Briton is supposed to be an "ally".

Now all we need is to find out what our one other "ally" -- Israel -- really thinks about us, and we can have ourselves a real celebration over the successes in diplomacy and brigde-building by our prestigious, honorable and forthright federal government.
