Another Woman That Needs The Boot

A public school principal in Texas who arranged for an Islamic instruction presentation for students allowed the presentation to continue after being told not to by her district's superintendent.

The issue developed this week when public school students at Friendswood Junior High in the Houston area were forced into an assembly scheduled by Principal Robin Lowe, who had replaced a scheduled physical education class with the Islamic presentation.
Two women from the Houston division of the Council on American-Islamic Relations instructed students that Adam, Noah and Jesus are prophets, announced "there is one god, his name is Allah," taught the five pillars of Islam, told students how to pray five times a day, and instructed what Islamic religious rules require for dress.
As most of you already know, I have no dog in this fight, but it seems to me that American Christians should be up in arms over this. A Christan instructor is not allowed to do anything like this anywhere in the United States - by law - but a couple of of broads in burkas can?

The arrogance of the elite:
SAN ANGELO, Texas (AP) - Parents' hopes of quick reunions with more than 400 children removed from a polygamist sect's ranch were dashed Friday after their attorneys and a judge clashed over proposed restrictions.
A decision by Texas District Judge Barbara Walther means that to regain custody, the 38 mothers whose filed the complaint that led the Texas Supreme Court to reject the state's massive seizure must personally sign an agreement their attorneys and state child-welfare officials have proposed.
This is the same female judge that authorized this state kidnapping disaster in the first place.
Her farcical, arrogant, chaotic performance on April 17-18, 2008 utterly failed to deliver basic due process to parents whom she personally threatened with a penalty worse than death: the taking of their children.
State and federal law required this clown of a judge to hold a “full adversarial hearing” before removing any one of these children from the care and custody of their parent.

*********Judge "I make the laws" Barbara Walther*********

Looks a bit out-of-sorts, doesn't she? Well, no wonder, a decision of HERS has been challenged and overturned. How dare we do such a thing!

A “full adversarial hearing” is not in the statute by chance or by Texas choice. It is a fundamental element of due process under the 14th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. Even if the Texas legislature didn’t want it there, it would be required of Texas as a prophylactic against invasion by the U.S. military. The right to due process is that fundamental to our way of life in the United States.
Judge Walther has admitted ignoring the law with her decision to not conduct a “full adversarial hearing” for each and every parent accused in this matter and allowing the Texas CPS to gallop off half-cocked and totally stupid in their zeal to abduct the children, none of which had broken any law or violated any statute, and none of whom has been shown(then or now) to have been "abused" in any way.

The Texas Supreme Court has ordered the return of these children to their parents and this screwball judge has no business whatever trying to attach "conditions" to their return. That is nothing more than another demonstration of this woman's arrogance and disrespect.

This out-of-control judge should be forced from the bench and prosecuted(for numerous civil rights violations just for starters), and this case needs to be handed over to someone a lot saner... and a lot more lawful.

We have way too many judges across the nation creating their own version of the law. This woman is a classic example. At least in this case, this judge has been caught and exposed. Now she needs to be made an example of, so other judges... who believe themselves to be the ultimate lawmakers of the land... will take heed.

I have the bad feeling that the State of Texas is going to lose a LOT of money in the upcoming lawsuits. "Judge" Walther should be required to pay all losses... She's responsible for this whole disaster.

The Europeans Snicker

A headline:
Americans' Record $4 Gasoline Price Remains Bargain in Europe.
Europeans are wondering why we Americans show no signs of abandoning our vehicles as gasoline fetches almost $4 gallon. Europeans have been paying much more that that for at least six years.

Where a European may need to travel just a few miles to get from A to B, Americans often need to travel hundreds of miles. There is no known way to reduce the mileage our truckers have to travel to bring us all the things we need on a daily basis. Truckers MUST buy fuel, that's why diesel is 5 bucks a gallon, even though diesel costs less to produce than gasoline. Truckers can't carpool, double up their loads, or take some magical fuel-saving shortcut. Pure highway robbery.

Just look at a world map. Most of Europe would fit in Texas, not that we would want any of them here. You can drive clear across some of those so-called "nations" with less than a half-tank of gas.

Sadly, we don't have the public transportation systems they have. Europeans don't have to drive everywhere like most of us Americans do, so the cost of fuel does not hit then nearly as hard as it does us. Where they have a huge network of commuter trains and buses that need to go just a few miles from point to point, we would need a system many orders of magnitude larger. The cost of such a system would be astronomical, and we've already put all our transportation money into highways and airports. So we drive or fly, but both modes are becoming prohibitively expensive, meaning we need to create a national commuter system.

But the United States federal government, under the controlling hands of Israeli agents and lobbyists, is spending all our money on wars against any number of Arab States who want to see Israel disassembled, and - guess what? - control most of the world's oil, which (warning, science content): is made into gasoline, diesel and jet fuel for our cars, trucks and airplanes, the price of which is going through the roof.

Golly, Mr. wizard, do you suppose there is a connection?

So the Europeans are laughing at us... not because we are starting to pay the same price for gas as them... but why we are.

The G. I. Bill Fight

So now we have a battle between our presidential candidates about how the GI Bill is not providing enough money to veterans for their college degrees.

Well, duh...

You must consider the attitudes of the Washington elite, the business elite and the very rich, the very powerful and the privileged in this country in order to figure out why.

Soldiers are not called "grunts" and "cannon fodder" by these people for no reason. They call them that because they believe them to be exactly that... slow-thinking and dim-witted hinterland offspring that can't find work anywhere but in the army, and generally too stupid to figure out that all those Army ads about "an army of one" and "be the best you can be" is nothing more than total hype and bullsh*t.

The children of the elite who may think of the military as a good thing, or as a requirement for political careers, go to places like Annapolis or West Point - incredibly elite(and taxpayer supported) universities unto themselves - and then spend their "active" duty someplace as safe as their baby nursery was. Then they become generals infesting the Pentagon and ultimately... thieving beltline lobbiests and politicians that infest Washington.

Sending the likes of the average foot soldier to college is - they believe - a waste of time and money, so Congress has quietly been not funding what the military has been promising all those country boys, but somebody finally noticed, and now the ruckus.

Don't expect any changes on this. The military will continue to promise enlistment and re-enlistment bonus's and then not pay them. They will continue to promise a college education and not deliver. They will also - we are told - help you finance your home ... if you will be satisfied with something no larger than the average tool shed.

Don't believe any of it for a second. The typical soldier of today will always be considered as a grunt and nothing more than cannon fodder, another expendable asset to further the ambitions of the rich and powerful.

Many World War II veterans did get a higher education using the GI bill. But that was a half-century ago, colleges were affordable then, and our politicians believed in something besides themselves and their fortunes.

But even then - as some of you may recall - enlisted men were not allowed to "fraternize" with those female nurses. They were playtoys and targets for the officers only.

MI6... Again

From that pitiful nest of British intel:
LONDON -- Agents with Britain's MI6 intelligence agency who are based in the Middle East have established that 13 countries in the region have drawn up new plans -- or reviewed previous ones -- to build nuclear stations following in the path of Iran's push for an enriched uranium program capable of producing nuclear weapons, according to a report in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.

"It is clear that those countries are motivated by what Tehran is doing to enter into the nuclear weapons club," states an MI6 report.
No, that's not clear at all. What those 13 countries are doing is taking a hard look at the cost of oil and deciding that nuclear energy just might be the solution to their energy problems.

It's not the "nuclear weapons club" these places are interested in. It's the "nuclear power club" they want to join, and they're not looking at Iran, but France, where over 80% of their electricity is generated using nuclear energy.

And guess what? Not one death in France related to the generation of nuclear power, not one bug-eyed mutant wandering the streets and back alleys as a result. And their carbon footprint gets smaller every year.

And we laugh at the French. Short-sighted... that is.

Col. Bartos On The Jews

Robert Bartos over at Shrapnel, says this:
It is time Americans question the subservience of US national interests to those of Israel. Israel is, in general, despised on the world stage for stealing Arab land and ruthless suppression of human rights – their policies have fueled the development of Hamas and Hezbollah; militant groups not friendly to the US, but important in political stabilization of the region. The US provides 3-4 billion in military aid with first class weapons systems and insures development loans for Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem. It cynically sends Jewish American envoys to negotiate with the Arabs and Palestinians. All this makes a farce of US even handedness in the Middle East.
Listening to McCain(and the monkey on his back, Joe Lieberman), consists mainly of hearing about how the interest of Israel are foremost on McCain's mind... not us, not America, not our interests... but Israel. Enough already.

McCain does not sound like he's running to be president of the United States, but instead running to be the number one servant of Israel, and to keep dragging us down that sixty-year-old path of insanity.

Like I said, enough already.

Hillary... Again

Hillary - while trying to justify her staying in the race - is again in hot water with the media over her remark about JFK having been shot in the month of June, while stating at the same time that her husband did not lock up his nomination until the month of June also.

Like it or not, Hillary points to the obvious: Controversial politicians can get shot dead at any time for any number of reasons, and the list of malcontents to do the deed is a long one.

Obama - without doubt - is a controversial politician, a black man of Muslim heritage wanting to become president of the United States, where both blacks and Muslims are distinct minorities and not in the mainstream of the American mindset.

Bad as it sounds, I'm a bit surprised that some loony hasn't taken a shot at him already, and wouldn't be caught off guard if somebody tries at some time or another in the future.

Being a Secret Service agent assigned to protect Obama must be the Departments number one nightmare job... but at least those agents have great health insurance.

Polar Bears

Polar Bears have been put on the endangered list.


I'm trying my best to figure out why we should give a damn. There's just a few thousand left in the entire world, and as a species are about to join the long list of lifeforms that have come and gone on this planet.

We are told that over 99% of the hundreds of thousands of lifeforms ever to be created on earth are now extinct. No doubt humans will one day be extinct also, and I worry much more about that than I do the polar bears, which is not at all.

Tell me what polar bears have contributed to anything you can possibly imagine. They sleep half the year away, and then go kill and eat a few seals for the other half. Their total contribution to mankind has been the scattering of trash in far northern city dumps... that's about it. Maybe at some time in the past they provided Eskimos with bear skin rugs and clothing. And bear claw necklaces for the local macho dude natives.

But the Eskimos all live on government subsidies now, so the only possible justification for keeping them around has vanished.

No, I'm wrong... keeping them around keeps a few polar bear lovers and researchers employed, the kind of people who exist on government research grants. Those grants would be tax money, our money.

If you actually believe they may have something vital and critical to offer humanity in the future, freeze up some polar bear eggs and sperm someplace and let future humanity figure out what it might be.

Let them go the way of the Dodo. After all, it would be Nature's way. And we have better things to do with the money.

Article II, Section 1

Article II, Section 1.
The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his office during the term of four years...
He? His? More:
In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death....
The Constitution continues:
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation...
Not a single "her" or "She" so far:
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion...
Apparently, no female Commander-In-chief was wanted.
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties...
Something Bush has not done. But to him, the Constitution is just a "damned piece of paper".
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union...
Nope, not a single "she" or "her" anywhere in the entire section.

Makes you wonder if the Clintons - or the democratic party - have ever read the Constitution of the United States. We would need a Constitutional amendment allowing a female president before we could vote one in.

That's the way it is.

Get Serious, McCain

Republician presidental candidate John McCain is having problems with all the lobbyists infesting his campaign. The latest, his campaign finance manager, was found to be a registered agent of the Saudi government, who has been paid fifteen million dollars by the Saudis to date.

McCain said that any person in his campaign who is found out to be a registered lobbyist or an agent of a foreign government will be fired on the spot.

As I watched him say this on TV, I noted with great amusement that - standing directly behind him - was Israel's number one citizen abroad, American(supposed) Senator Joe Leiberman.

What a joke.

The Obama Faithful

Take a close look at this photograph:

It's supposedly a snapshot of the adoring Obama masses in Oregon recently.

Personally, I smell the particular scent of photoshop in this photo. Reminds me of the wave after wave of Arab warriors in "The Mummy Returns". Only about fifty of them were real, the rest were just endlessly computer-duplicated copies until it looked like they stretched from horizon to horizon.

If there are really that many people willing to stuff themselves together in a mass of wiggly protoplasm like the photo shows, we are in real trouble. These idiots must believe that Obama is the new Pope, or even better, the savior.. finally returning.

Wasn't it Serious Sam in "The Second Encounter" that said something about the power of headless masses?


T-Bone Pickins

T-Bone Pickins, an oil billionaire, was just on CNN promoting what would be the world's largest wind farm, to be built by him using his own money, in Texas. Good Ole T-Bone said - among other things - that Saudi Arabia was already pumping as much oil as they can(so don't blame them), and that we(the United States) didn't much much oil left.

Several red flags starting flying immediately:
Red flag #1: T-bone has made his fortune with oil... he has a vested interest in keeping oil scarce and expensive.

Red flag #2: The Saudi big wigs told us just last week they were pumping enough to supply the present demand, and they denied Bush's plea to pump more(which they easily can) to ease up on the prices
Remember that? Bush just went over to Saudi Arabia to literally beg them to increase output(which everybody knows they can), except for maybe oil billionaire T-bone Pickins.
Red flag #3: Just two days ago CNN reported that the United states had enough oil - right now, today - to provide energy for 100 million homes and 160 million cars for SIXTY years.
That does not include the billions of barrels available in our shale oil deposits.
Red flag #4: Wind generators are expensive and very high maintenance. Like ethanol, it takes a hell of a lot of money and effort - a steady flow of both - to get a single kilowatt out of a wind farm.

Red flag #5: T-Bone claims he will build this wind farm with his own money. If you believe that, you don't need to be reading any of this.

Red flag #6: He wants to build it in Texas, where's there's lots of high winds. Well, hell yes, lots of tornadoes also.
That's like building your house in a flood plain... you're gonna get hit... and insurance companies won't touch you.

This CNN "program" with T-Bone was so full of bull sh*t it was hard to watch, but I hope these six red flags will get you to start thinking about all this con-artistry the big boys are - and will be - trying to get away with during this energy crisis, all of which will cost us dearly and make them a lot richer... and won't solve a single problem.

How the hell will a wind farm help with the gas problem? TODAY? We would need to get rid of every gas-guzzler and diesel semi-truck rig on the highways today and convert to electric vehicles and hybrids to use any of this wind generated electrical energy. How long - and how much money - would that require?

How the hell will a wind farm help with the heating oil problem in the east? TODAY? Every home using heating oil today would have to rip out their present heating system, replace it with an all-electric one, and then, the power companies would have to run miles and miles of new power lines to handle the load. How long - and how much money - would that require?

T-bone is just looking for another way to make another billion or so. There must be a lot of CNN bigwigs that own stock in Pickins companies.

Any day Now

Indiana Jones is coming to your town once again, after twenty years. Harrison Ford is twenty years older, and I am curious as to how he will play the character.

I anticipate there will not be so many hair-raising stunts as in the first three movies - at least not done by the Jones character -and that Ford will play the part as that of a man twenty years older. Still tough and rugged, just older.

Should be a great film.

One Of Those Family Loving People

Friend of your family and mine, California Supreme Court Justice Ronald M. George.

SAN FRANCISCO -- In the days leading up to the California Supreme Court's historic same-sex marriage ruling Thursday, the decision "weighed most heavily" on Chief Justice Ronald M. George -- more so, he said, than any previous case in his nearly 17 years on the court.
The court was poised 4 to 3 not only to legalize same-sex marriage but also to extend to sexual orientation the same broad protections against bias previously saved for race, gender and religion. The decision went further than any other state high court's and would stun legal scholars, who have long characterized George and his court as cautious and middle of the road.
Hmm. So, in California, marriage is no longer between a man and a woman, but can be between a man and a man, a woman and a woman, a man and a sheep, a woman and a male blow-up doll.

Those Texas polygamists can move to California now, it's home free for them.

Actually, the whole thing is a far-right plot to eliminate homosexuals. By letting them openly get married and skip gaily off into the "no progeny allowed" sunset, they won't have any children, and their DNA - with it's homosexual tendencies - will be eliminated from the gene pool. They may adopt to satisfy that "family" itch, but no big deal, those adopted kids will most likely end up straight, or most of them will... after Dad and Dad - or Mom and Mom - are pushing up daisies.

It will only take a generation or two.

A Texas Coalition

Yep. A Texas Coalition of... jackasses.

WASHINGTON, May 18 (UPI) -- The Texas Border Coalition, which includes a number of cities along the U.S.-Mexico border has filed a lawsuit against the border fence.

In court papers filed Friday in Washington, the group asked a court to block the construction of the fence in the Rio Grande Valley.

The coalition, which also includes business groups, charges that the Department of Homeland Security did not consult landowners in the area. DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff denied that in a news conference Friday.

Eagle Pass Mayor Chad Foster, who chairs the coalition, called the fence:
An antiquated solution for a 21st century problem
Really? Seems to me that Chad Foster is a 21st century problem. I would bet money that Chad has:

-1) A border-jumping minority girlfriend or wife, or:
-2) A border jumping minority boyfriend or "husband", or:
-3) A business that needs illegal labor to survive, or:
-4) A bank account much larger than it should be, or:
-5) Is just another fool being played by La Raza and the like, or:
-6) Is just another fool being playing by his local Chamber of Commerce, or:
-7) One or more of the above.

If a fence is an "antiquated solution", why are the Israelis feverishly building miles and miles of twenty-foot high concrete fences around themselves to help keep the Palestinians out?

Another thing, any citizen who owns land along a national border needs to expect governmental intrusion and activity as required to secure said border. Just as the power company has a right-of-way on your property to run poles, power lines and install transformers, etc., the government has a right-of-way along the border.

So deal with it, or get land somewhere else.

Credit Where Credit Is Due

President Bush said on Saturday that a hike in oil output by Saudi Arabia would not solve American energy problems.
It's not enough, it's something but it doesn't solve our problem. Our problem in America gets solved when we aggressively go for domestic exploration. Our problem in America gets solved if we expand our refining capacity, promote nuclear energy and continue our strategy for the advancing of alternative energies as well as conservation.
Well now. A spark of sensibility from Bush the Younger.

But why didn't he announce this eight years ago? And start doing something about it then?

Whose Oil Rigs Are They Anyway?

Thinking about OPEC and the wide open attack on our economy it is conducting makes me think back to the beginning when the OPEC nations were destitute third world hellholes. Then our oil companies moved in, searched for oil, found it, and established all those fields that OPEC is pumping from today.

If it hadn't been for us and our search for oil, all those OPEC nations would still be third world hellholes. But now that they have started wading neck deep in our money, they are spitting in our faces and ruining us economically.

Maybe we should just go take all the oil fields back, pump them dry, and then leave those OPEC countries exactly as we found them... third world hellholes.

Sounds like a plan to me.

Bush Visits His Boss

Say what?
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The United States and Israel agree on the need for "tangible action" to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's spokesman said after a visit by U.S. President George W. Bush.
No freaking way does the United States "agree". Maybe Bush and a large part of Congress agrees, but about 99.9% of Americans are not interested in yet another Middle East war, this time with Iran.

Even the bimbos and bobbleheads in TV news say that Iran is Israels enemy, not an enemy of the the United States. But Israel keeps trying to shove us into the fray. The Israelis - naturally - will stay out of the conflict and let us take all the hits. Nice folks, those Israelis.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert no doubt promised Bush to do "something" about Middle East peace, but not now.

And then sent him packing off to Saudi Arabia, empty handed, totally unaware that his tail was firmly tucked between his legs.

Proof Positive...

... That President Bush has destroyed America's stature and influence around the world:
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - The White House says Saudi Arabia's leaders are making clear they see no reason to increase oil production until customers demand it.
President Bush was in the oil-rich country Friday to appeal to King Abdullah for greater production to help halt rising gas prices in the United States.
Bush trots over to Saudi Arabia to ask them a favor to help drop the cost of oil, but visits Israel first, making the Saudis second in line, a deadly insult. What an idiot.

First he pleads with the Jews to make peace during his term as president(something every American president for the last sixty years has tried), then he grovels in front of some greedy towelhead(who is actually an enemy of ours) in Saudi Arabia trying to cut the cost of oil.

Both the Jews and the Saudis effectively laugh in his face and send him packing with his tail tucked between his legs.

Try to keep in mind that both these places are two-bit little nothings sprouting out of the desert sands, both far smaller than many of our States. The only thing either of them have going for themselves is our money.

Yes Yes... the Jews have their version of religion and the Arabs have oil, both commodities Americans are addicted to. We need a real cold-turkey plan to wean us from both.

Had I been in Bush's place, I would have stopped the money flow instantly until they toe the line. Having the President of the United States take this kind of sass from either of them is not in my playbook.

Even if it is an idiot like Bush.

Obama Gets It Wrong

Barak Obama, in a speech lambasting Bush, said in part:
... and the President's extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel.
Obama makes a statement about "our stalwart ally Israel". Nothing could be further from the truth. America, because of it's heavily manipulated and controlled federal government, has been a stalwart ally of Israel, the exact opposite of what Obama says.

Israel is not our "stalwart ally". Never has been. The state of Israel is the sole reason why we are in the mess we are in today, what with Arab terrorists blowing up stuff, Oil prices through the roof, our military depleted and spent, fighting the wars Israel has caused.

If the "State" of Israel had not been "created" by UN Resolution 181 in 1948, and if then President Truman had not recognized this new "State" - thus providing the military and political power of the United States to back it - there would be no Israel today, celebrating it's sixty-year occupation of Palestine and it's sixty years of inhuman treatment of the once native Palestinians.

Those who believe that Israel is our friend really must read and understand how the vote to create Israel was managed in the United Nations and how a majority of members did not vote at all, how they - in effect - took the day off, allowing the pro-Israel minority to win the day. It is a masterpiece of political intrigue, a shameful demonstration of how men will do anything for power or money.

Those who believe that Israel is our friend and ally must read and understand that Israel's supposed heroes were in fact vicious monsters who slaughtered entire populations of Palestinian towns - men, women and children - then razed those villages to the ground, assuring future generations of hate-filled terrorists with their only goals the destruction of Israel and its mindless servant, America.

Those who believe that Israel is our friend and ally need to discover how the United Sates became the enemy of all Islam by befriending, supporting and defending Israel in it's endless attempts to wipe the Palestinians off the face of the earth.

Those who would want to discover the reality about modern-day Israel should start discovering the truth instead of mindlessly absorbing the pablum we have been spoon fed for decades.

Starter reading:

UN GENERAL RESOLUTION 181 (Partition Plan of Palestine)

The Origin of the Palestine-Israel Conflict

Most of us don't have a dog in this fight, but we've been beat over the head with it for for too long. We've lost too many lives, spilled too much blood, lost too much treasure and lost far too much prestige and influence throughout the world in this misadventure we don't belong in.

It really is past time for America to get out of this endless quagmire. After 60 years, Israel must be cut loose to sink or swim on it's own merits. If they are as right as they claim, it will be their god that assures their continued existence as a nation, not America. Sort of a final "put up or shut up".

I don't care if the Jews and the Arabs want to fight for the next 10,000 years, but I want us, our military, our money - and our government - OUT OF IT. We have enough problems of our own, without having to additionally tolerate these massive problems created by a pugnacious little state full of belligerent, bigoted and self-righteous elitists.

A Letter From Einstein

Albert Einstein described belief in God as "childish superstition" and said Jews were not the chosen people, in a letter to be sold in London this week, an auctioneer said Tuesday.
The father of relativity, whose previously known views on religion have been more ambivalent and fuelled much discussion, made the comments in response to a philosopher in 1954.

As a Jew himself, Einstein said he had a great affinity with Jewish people but said they "have no different quality for me than all other people".

"The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.

"No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this," he wrote in the letter written on January 3, 1954 to the philosopher Eric Gutkind, cited by The Guardian newspaper.

The German-language letter is being sold Thursday by Bloomsbury Auctions in Mayfair after being in a private collection for more than 50 years, said the auction house's managing director Rupert Powell.
I suppose that settles that.

Unless - of course - someone buys it with the sole intention of destroying it, to later claim that no such letter exists (would be true) and never existed (prove otherwise, nyah, nyah)... fanatics are like that.

The "Stimulus" Package

I should have known...

My wife's stimulus check has not showed up, so I went to, followed the prompts, and downloaded the two following letters:

The letter addressed to my SS No.
Social Security Number: ***-**-xxxx(my SS no.)
Your total Stimulus payment was calculated as $600.00 and consists of the following:

Basic amount: $600.00
Qualifying Child Amount: $0.00 (based on 0 qualifying children).

Your payment of $600.00 has been scheduled to be deposited in your bank on May 7, 2008.
This was followed up by some info on what to do if the money didn't show.

The letter addressed to my wife's SS No.:
Social Security Number: ***-**-xxxx(her SS no.)
Your total Stimulus payment was calculated as $600.00 and consists of the following:

Basic amount: $600.00
Qualifying Child Amount: $0.00 (based on 0 qualifying children).

Your payment of $600.00 has been scheduled to be deposited in your bank on May 7, 2008.
I phoned the number provided for Stimulus payment questions to ask why wife's $600.00 did not show as scheduled, and the gal on the other end of the line told me that we qualified for only $300.00 each... for a total of $600.00. I read each letter to her, and she said no, that's wrong, the real total is $600.00 for the two of us. I asked her if there is a place to appeal her decision and she said... no, because it's a gift, there is no appeal process. To ice the cake, this women attempted to blame the Media, saying that they "got it all wrong".

I must be stupid, because I figured the total amount was $1,200.00. Silly me. I added up the two $600.00 dollar payments - one payment to each of us - to be deposited in our bank like the two IRS letters said, each letter being addressed to a person with a different social security number.

I should have known...


I have written both our Senators about this one, and since I am ordained, I signed the letters indicating such a status.

Wonder if that will help any.

War With Iran

It's coming...

The success of the Iran-backed Hezbollah in Lebanon is stirring up the wardrum beaters:
The National Security Council has agreed in principle to proceed with plans to attack an Iranian al-Qods-run camp that is believed to be training Iraqi militants. The camp that will be targeted is one of several located near Tehran. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates was the only senior official urging delay in taking any offensive action.
There was no benefit of any kind to America with it's war against Iraq. Zero. Zip. Nada. Only massive losses of life and treasure. So what will the benefits be with another Middle East war, this time with Iran? Same answer.

We are being stampeded into this confrontation by the Israeli lobby in Washington. That is not some far-off conspiracy theory, the Jews are openly brazen about how they control the American federal government for the single purpose of benefiting Israel.

It always continues to surprise me the things our federal government will do in it's efforts to save the Jews from the consequences of their own actions in the Middle East. But it shouldn't, what with the likes of Joe Lieberman and his ilk being allowed to run loose and amok inside the beltline.

A final note: The al-Qods run camp near Tehran is believed to be training Iraqi militants. For this we will start another war.

Look for a U.S. cruise missile attack any day now.

Defense Analysts?

This is beyond nonsense:
LONDON – Defense analysts for the British intelligence service MI6 believe China is preparing for the "eventuality of a nuclear war." The conclusion follows evidence that Beijing has built secretly a major naval base deep inside caverns which even sophisticated satellites cannot penetrate, says a report in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
I was reading the article with an open mind until I got to this part:
A Royal Navy nuclear submarine, one of those in the Typhoon Fleet, now has joined another from the U.S. Pacific Fleet to build up a clear image of what is happening inside the secret base which, as well as China's nuclear subs, could house "a host of aircraft carriers."
House a "host" of aircraft carriers. Not just one, but a "host".

Ever seen an aircraft carrier up close? Over a thousand feet long, two hundred and fifty feet wide, three hundred feet tall, weighing almost a 100,000 tons, and drawing up to thirty feet of water. Just rough figures of course, but try to imagine the cave required to handle just one of these monsters. And these M16 analysts tell us the Chinese will be able to hide a "host" of them in their hand-carved caves in a place called Sanya on the southern tip of Hainan island.

The largest room so far discovered in the largest cave in the world could not hide even one carrier.

Yep. The Chinese are going to hide a host of aircraft carriers like the USS Nimitz(above) in their little island hideaway.

The M16 geniuses who came up with this must be from the same batch of intelligence halfwits that supported George Bush in his WMD campaign against Iraq.

But... keep in mind this article came from Joseph Farah's(of WorldNetDaily fame) "G2 bulletin".

As always, it is wise to consider the source.

For your convenience:

Fred On Women In General

And American women specifically:
Everywhere I go outside of the US, the American men I meet speak of their horror of sexless, hostile, ill-bred American women. Sure, there are exceptions and degrees among the gringas. Most unfortunately, exceptions is what they are. The delight with feminine foreign women is given, over and over, as a major reason for expatriation. (The other big reason is disgust with governmental regulation of everything in the US.) I have friends married to Thai, Filipina, Chinese, and Mexican wives, all delighted. Me too.

How did this come about? I don’t know, but I’m not imagining it.
Wonder what he thinks of American men, men who allowed these kinds of women to create themselves.

Records And More Records

Oil passes $126 while gas pushes above $3.67 a gallon.

Pundits have been telling us since 2004 that Osama may try to attack oil tankers at sea, since terrorists understand that disrupting our oil supply could ruin our economy.

Those terrorists are Arabs/Muslims.

OPEC, the organization that is sending the cost of oil through the roof, is a cartel made up and run by Arabs/Muslims, with Mexico and Venezuela aboard as minority members.

Try to think this through...

Arab/Muslims = Terrorists. Arabs/Muslims = OPEC.

The Arabs/Muslims hate Israel. We support Israel. If the Arabs/Muslims can ruin our economy using oil as their WMD, Israel will lose it's Superpower supporter. On their own, Israel won't stand a snowballs chance in hell of surviving.

The Arabs/Muslims win back the Middle East.

How much longer will it be before our Jewish controlled federal government and media start talking about what the rest of the world already knows... this Israel/oil connection?

Never, pal. We and our entire nation will go down in flames before it's ever even mentioned on CNN.

Choices, Choices

Look like Hillary is getting ready to bow out.

So that leaves Obama or McCain.

What the hell sort of choice for president is that? We get to vote for endless war or the Nation of Islam.

Think I'll go join Fred, who "... now live(s) in Mexico near Guadalajara, having found burros preferable to bureaucrats. (his) hobbies are wind surfing, scuba, listening to blues, swing-dancing in dirt bars, associating with colorful maniacs, weight-lifting, and people of the other sex."

Obama or McCain. That's what America has come to.

Deleting Comments

Can anyone tell me how to delete a comment? As you can see below, some cretin called "Berto" is spamming about his used construction equipment, and i have no intention of becoming an advertising space for this - or any other - jackass.

Addendum: Got the correct advice and Oberto is history.

Gore Can't - Or Won't - Quit

Gore pontificates:
And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated, And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.
Former Vice President Al gore was being interviewed by “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross on NPR when he made these remarks.

Somebody needs to tell this guy that the real records are in for the last TEN YEARS and they show that the earth has actually been cooling down during this time. Actually, the world has been in a cooling cycle for 23 years.

It's amazing how the lust for recognition and power will so completely consume - and ultimately destroy - a man.

More Federal Government Idiocy

Here we have yet another example of our government's "Let's throw away more tax money" policies:
British defence giant BAE Systems is creating a series of tiny electronic spiders, insects and snakes that could become the eyes and ears of soldiers on the battlefield, helping to save thousands of lives.

Prototypes could be on the front line by the end of the year, scuttling into potential danger areas such as booby-trapped buildings or enemy hideouts to relay images back to troops safely positioned nearby.

Soldiers will carry the robots into combat and use a small tracked vehicle to transport them closer to their targets.

Then they would swarm into the building and relay images back to the soldiers' hand-held or wrist-mounted computers, warning them of any threats inside.
BAE Systems has just signed a £19million contract to develop the robots for the US Army.

A short examination if this wondrous "spider" robot is in order.

1- It will require multiple motors, gears and levers for mobility, a vision system, proximity sensors, plus balance and pressure sensors just to not run willy-nilly into obstacles, stay on course and remain right-side-up, a very extensive computerized brain to handle such a task, and a large power supply to keep it up and running.

2- A TV camera, associated optics and electronics, a GPS system, a transmitter to send all this imagery and information back to the soldiers "hand-held or wrist-mounted computer", requiring even more power to keep it all running. Imagine the size of the battery these things would need. Or will they have a teenie-tiny little nuclear reactor as a power source?

3-Consider the real cost of just one of these little wonders with all it's support equipment, which could easily be destroyed with just one foot stomp by the enemy. Just look at the photograph... the thing must be a half-foot across. How noticeable would a spider twice the size of a tarantula sneaking around on the floor be?

4- Now imagine a "swarm" of these improbable little devices all sending back information at the same time. Talk about information overload. Today's "average" front line soldier would be overwhelmed and rendered ineffective.

The real idiocy of all this... somebody in our esteemed federal government authorized a nineteen million pound contract to "develop" this impossible toy.

The foot soldier has always been the "eyes and ears" of the army. I don't see these things changing that anytime soon.

Deborah Jeane Palfrey, facing a likely prison term of four to six years for running a Washington area call-girl ring, was found hung in a storage shed behind her mother's mobile home in Tarpon springs, Fla.

Deborah was dubbed "the D.C. Madam" after a grand jury in Washington indicted her 14 months ago on prostitution-related racketeering charges. She had stated that she had 10,000 to 15,000 phone numbers of clients, causing several clients' lawyers to contact Palfrey to see whether accommodations could be made to keep their identities private. She said she would release all those names before she spent another day in jail.

Her mother, Blance Palfrey, when entering her back yard shed, discovered her daughter, Deborah, hung by a nylon rope over a metal beam on the ceiling of the shed, supposedly having used a child's tricycle as a stepladder.

Capt. Jeffrey P. Young of the Tarpon Springs police said they found "approximately two" suicide notes in the mobile home, along with "some type of notebooks that had just notes to the family and so forth."

Well, hell yes, it's tough to figure the exact amount of anything when there are two of them.

Keep in mind she had threatened to release all her recorded names of those Washington big shots... and women don't hardly ever hang themselves... they take poison.

Suicide? Don't conclude that for a second.
