Quote of the Day…..

Via Haaretz:

“You Jews should be aware: You will never, but never have peace with Hamas. Islam, as the ideology that guides them, will not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the Jews. They believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed fought against the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight them to the death.”

Stop the Presses! I am actually agreeing with a Liberal (For a Change….)

I must say, that I strongly disagree with the Statement of Ross Douthat, that somehow that this McCain video is racist.

Oliver Willis, of whom, has a rib tickling funny tagline of “Like Kryptonite To Stupid”, which I find to be absolutely hilarious. Says this:

I have to confess, I don’t think the overtones in the Paris Hilton/Britney Spears ad from McCain was about race. I think some on my side of the aisle are reading too much into this – the McCain people just aren’t smart enough to be that subtle.

The reaction from Democrats brings to mind an abused wife who now thinks of many/most men as abusive, without any evidence saying that. Dems have rolled over so much for aggressive Dems that the left is very sensitive to it. Then again, I’m okay with a more aggressive reaction to the very passive way Dems handled these things in the past.

I agree. I think Russ is kinda stretching this thing a wee bit too far. Even Andrew Sullivan does not buy it.

Like Mr. Willis says, I do not think that John McCain would be that blatantly stupid to toss a Political campaign into the wind, just to take a cheap shot at Obama.

Having said that, I think Obama’s continued use of the underhanded race card, which it seems McCain has just now come around to noticing is a bit foolish as well.

I think it would serve both camps well, to just get back to debating the ISSUES and not Race, Celebrity or any of that other idiotic nonsense, yes, he want to Germany and Iraq. Big effin’ deal, nail him on his politics and polices, keep this other nonsense out of it.

Shocking: Is THIS a sign of things to come in America?

This is a disgrace to the United States of America and our Constitution!

In case anyone wonders. This city and state are controlled by Democrats.

From The Washington Post:

A police SWAT team raided the home of the mayor in the Prince George’s County town of Berwyn Heights on Tuesday, shooting and killing his two dogs, after he brought in a 32-pound package of marijuana that had been delivered to his doorstep, police said.

Mayor Cheye Calvo was not arrested in the raid, which was carried out about 7 p.m. by the Sheriff’s Office SWAT team and county police narcotics officers. Prince George’s police spokesman Henry Tippett said yesterday that all the residents of the house — Calvo, his wife and his mother-in-law — are “persons of interest” in the case.

The package was addressed to Calvo’s wife, Trinity Tomsic, said law enforcement officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case is ongoing.

Tippett said police are working to determine for whom the drugs were meant.

Calvo said yesterday that he did not know how the drugs wound up on his doorstep. He works part time as the mayor and serves as director of expansion for the SEED Foundation, a well-known national nonprofit group that runs urban public boarding schools.

“My government blew through my doors and killed my dogs,” Calvo said. “They thought we were drug dealers, and we were treated as such. I don’t think they really ever considered that we weren’t.”

Calvo described a chaotic scene, in which he — wearing only underwear and socks — and his mother-in-law were handcuffed and interrogated for hours. They were surrounded by the dogs’ carcasses and pools of the dogs’ blood, Calvo said.

Spokesmen for the Sheriff’s Office and Prince George’s police expressed regret yesterday that the mayor’s dogs were killed. But they defended the way the raid was carried out, saying it was proper for a case involving such a large amount of drugs.

Sgt. Mario Ellis, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman, said the deputies who entered Calvo’s home “apparently felt threatened” by the dogs.

“We’re not in the habit of going to homes and shooting peoples’ dogs,” Ellis said. “If we were, there would be a lot more dead dogs around the county.”

Calvo, 37, has been mayor of the 3,000-person town near College Park since 2004. His wife is a finance officer for the state, he said.

The investigation that led police to their house in the 8500 block of Edmonston Road began in Arizona, officials said. There, a police dog at a shipping facility identified the package as being filled with marijuana. Prince George’s officers posed as deliverymen and brought it to Calvo’s home.

Calvo said he came home early from work Tuesday. While walking the dogs, Calvo said, he noticed several black sport-utility vehicles and a woman parked in a car down the street.

“I figured someone was having a party,” he recalled.

It was the police. They were watching, waiting for someone to bring the package into the house.

As Calvo returned to the house, he said, he spotted the large package that his mother-in-law had told a deliveryman to leave on the porch. He placed it on a buffet table near the front door and went upstairs to change.

“I brought it inside because I figured it was something we’d gotten for the garden,” he said.

Moments later, just after he had undressed, Calvo said, he heard his mother-in-law scream that someone was coming toward the house. He looked out his bedroom window and saw officers in SWAT gear running across the lawn.

“I heard a loud crash and then ‘bang, bang, bang,’ ” he said, recalling the sounds of the police shooting the dogs. “I hit the floor.”

As the police came in, Calvo said, they shot his 7-year-old black Labrador retriever, Payton, near the front door and then his 4-year-old dog, Chase, also a black Lab, as the dog ran into a back room. Walking through his house yesterday, Calvo pointed out a bullet hole in the drywall where the younger dog had been shot.

“I understand they have a job to do, but it didn’t have to go like that,” Calvo said. He said the police could have knocked on his door and asked him about the package. “I’ve never done drugs in my life. Anyone who knows me knows that I am so adamantly opposed to them.”

Police said yesterday that, when they seized the package during the raid, it was unopened.

Berwyn Heights Police Chief Patrick Murphy said county police and the Sheriff’s Office had not notified his department of the raid. He said town police could have conducted the search without a SWAT team.

“You can’t tell me the chief of police of a municipality wouldn’t have been able to knock on the door of the mayor of that municipality, gain his confidence and enter the residence,” Murphy said. “It would not have been a necessity to shoot and kill this man’s dogs.”


Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable.

Yikes!: The very high cost of broadband at the Republican Convention

Well, I think it is pretty obvious that I won’t be going to that little garden party!

Via Ed @ Hot Air:

The welcome letter instructed me to contact Qwest in order to arrange any needed voice or Internet services, and they provided a helpful link to an on-line ordering process — as well as the rates for the service. It took me nearly an hour to pick my jaw up off of the floor after reading it:

Qwest will provide high-speed Internet access via an Ethernet connection within the Convention Complex.

This service is for public Internet access only. This service does not provide any security capabilities or protections. The customer should ensure that any computers connected are properly protected and secured.

Qwest will provide the customer with a RJ45 plug for each 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps service and a fiber optic SC/PC connector for each 1 Gbps service. The service does not provide any hardware or cabling beyond the plug. The RJ45 cabling provided will be approximately 6ft in length.

* 10 Mbps (Dedicated) – $850.00
* 100 Mbps (Dedicated) – $7,650.00
* 1 Gbps (Dedicated) – $53,550.00

I think you can figure where I am going to be during the Republican Convention. :D

Seriously, 53 grand, for internet? Oy!

My thoughts on the Bush Aid Subpoena Ruling….

My feelings on this ruling are this.

As I have said on this Blog many times in the past, that no one, irregardless of social, political or financial status, is above the law. Yes, that includes the President of United States and his staff.

This game of hiding behind executive privilege is dangerous one and could cost the Republicans in the long run.

If the President of the United States and his staff have not broken the law, then why are they insistent on using executive privilege, as a sort of cloak and dagger game? That is the question, that many people, including many conservatives want answered.

We need answers, not games, and it is high time that the President and his group of Neo-Conservative thugs started answering honestly. It is also high time, that the Conservatives in Congress stopped cowering to this imperialistic President and his minions and started standing up for the Constitution of the United States and the Principles behind it.

The members of Congress serve at the pleasure of the people of the United States of America, and if the Conservatives in Congress do not start getting back to the Original principles of the Republican Party, they can and will be replaced with those who will take up this challenge and serve this country with honor and integrity.

Real Smart McCain, Real Smart…

Is the people that are running John McCain’s campaign just terminally stupid or what?

Via Martin Eisenstadt‘s Blog:

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems that the new McCain ad criticizing Obama for being a celebrity has ruffled some unintended feathers. I, for one, quite liked the ad, but I hear whispers from the inner campaign staff that the phone was burning off the hook today with calls from Paris Hilton’s grandfather, William Barron Hilton (co-chair of the Hilton Hotel empire), furious that the McCain ad drew an unflattering comparison between Obama and his own granddaughter.

It seems that the elder Hilton has donated $18,400 to the McCain campaign, and $35,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee in the last couple of years. (Paris’s father, Rick Hilton, has given an additional $6,900 to the McCain campaign. Suffice it to say, he’s none too pleased either.)

*snort*

Honestly, are McCain’s staffers even remotely paying attention? :roll:

I look for this ad to disappear, rather quickly, if McCain has any common sense.

Funny Quote….

Here’s funny one, that I read.

Via Politico.com:

“When Letterman is doing ‘Top Ten’ lists about something, it has officially entered the public consciousness,” said Dan Schnur, a political analyst from the University of Southern California and the communications director in John McCain’s 2000 campaign. “And it usually stays there for a long, long time.”

Interesting: Did Iraq’s WMD’s end up in Syria and Labanon?

Could be!

This is via WorldNetDaily:

A former American overseer of Iraqi prisons says several dozen inmates who were members of Saddam Hussein’s military and intelligence forces boasted of helping transport weapons of mass destruction to Syria and Lebanon in the three months prior to Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Don Bordenkircher – who served two years as national director of prison and jail operations in Iraq– told WND that about 40 prisoners he spoke with “boasted of being involved in the transport of WMD warheads to Syria.

A smaller number of prisoners, he said, claimed “they knew the locations of the missile hulls buried in Iraq.”

Some of the inmates, Bordenkircher said, “wanted to trade their information for a release from prison and were amenable to showing the locations.”

The prisoners were members of the Iraqi military or civilians assigned to the Iraqi military, often stationed at munitions facilities, according to Bordenkircher. He said he was told the WMDs were shipped by truck into Syria, and some ended up in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley.

I know, WND is not exactly known for their accuracy, but if this is true. We might have more problems on our hands, than we think.

A Local Historical Baseball landmark is being demolished

A Local Detroit landmark is being torn down in this great city.

Historical Tiger Stadium, will be, in a matter of days, nothing more than a memory.

Video: (via the Detroit Free Press)

I can honestly say, I never went to that old ballpark. I guess I just never had the chance. My cousins even went once, on a school trip. But I never made it. Sometimes, I wonder if going would have been better for me. But, that’s all a little late now. The Detroit Tigers are now using Comerica Park, a place that any baseball fan, who’s worth his salt, will tell you, that it lacks the grandeur of the old ballpark.

I guess some things in this city do change. I was really hoping that they would be able to keep that old ballpark, but alas, it is not to happen. :(

I could tell you about memories, involving that park. When the Detroit Tigers won the world series in 1984, I could hear the crowd cheering all the way at my house in Southwest Detroit. I was upstairs, studying, that summer, I had work to do, because I didn’t do so hot in school that year. Ever try studying, when half of your city is going crazy? Twas not fun.

Anyhow, it is really sad to see that old stadium go. I shall always remember her.

tigersta

Tiger Stadium, May her memory live long and never fade away…

Changed themes….again….

heh… I know someone is got to be screaming… “Pick a damn theme and KEEP IT!” :lol:

Anyhow, Pundit was nice, but it was not quite what I wanted. Too many variables.

This is cleaner, brighter and a bit simpler. Unless I see a 3 column that knocks my socks off, I’m sticking with the simplistic look.

…..Or unless someone makes a huge honking donation, so I can hire someone like Blog Studio to build a custom look for me. (Hence the donation icons at the top there people… You give now!)

Otherwise, it’s this for the time being.

That is all… :D

John Waver, Former McCain’s Former Strategist calls McCain Ad on Obama "Childish"

This is a bit of a surprise.

Marc Ambinder has the scoop:

With the release today of a McCain television ad blasting Obama for celebrity preening while gas prices rise, and a memo that accuses Obama of putting his own aggrandizement before the country, Weaver said he’s had "enough."

The ad’s premise, he said, is "childish."

"John’s been a celebrity ever since he was shot down," Weaver said. "Whatever that means. And I recall Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush going overseas and all those waving American flags."

Weaver remains in contact with senior McCain strategists and, for a while early this year, regularly talked to McCain.

The strategy of driving up Obama’s negatives "reduces McCain on the stage," Weaver said.

"For McCain to win in such troubled times, he needs to begin telling the American people how he intends to lead us. That McCain exists. He can inspire the country to greatness."

He added: "There is legitimate mockery of a political campaign now, and it isn’t at Obama’s. For McCain’s sake, this tomfoolery needs to stop."

On one hand, his opinion is legit, as I thought the "Celeb" ad was a bit silly. However, i have to wonder if this is just a bad case of sour grapes.

On the other hand, you know your campaign is having issues, when former staff members come out against you.

Barry Quips:

"You know, I don’t pay attention to John McCain’s ads, although I do notice he doesn’t seem to have anything to say very positive about
himself. He seems to only be talking about me. You need to ask John McCain what he’s for and not just what he’s against," he said.

Well Barry, for one, he’s against commie Liberal Marxist Negros like you.

Others: Pajamas Media

Yet, Another Obama rap song….

Here we go again:

Lyrics:

I’m back on it like I just signed my record deal

yeah the best is here, the Bentley Coup paint is dripping wet, it got sex appeal
never should have hated, you never should’ve doubted him
with a slot in the president’s iPod Obama shattered ‘em

Said I handled his biz and I’m one of his favorite rappers

Well give Luda a special pardon if I’m ever in the slammer
Better yet put him in office, make me your vice president

Hillary hated on you, so that b^$&%* is irrelevant

Jesse talking slick and apologizing for what?

if you said it then you meant it how you want it have a gut!

and all you other politicians trying to hate on my man,
watch us win a majority vote in every state on my man

you can’t stop what’s bout to happen, we bout to make history
the first black president is destined and it’s meant to be

the threats ain’t fazing us, the nooses or the jokes
so get off your ass, black people, it’s time to get out and vote!
paint the White House black and I’m sure that’s got ‘em terrified
McCain don’t belong in ANY chair unless he’s paralyzed

Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped
Ball up all of his speeches and I throw em like candy wrap
cause what you talking I hear nothing even relevant
and you the worst of all 43 presidents
get out and vote or the end will be near
the world is ready for change because Obama is here!
cause Obama is here
The world is ready for change because Obama is here!

Wow. Talking about taking every nuance and racial baiting stereotype and turning it up to 110!

Oyyy….

But that’s them Liberal Commies. Thank you President Johnson.

Of course, the Obamassiah’s Camp has saved face:

“As Barack Obama has said many, many times in the past, rap lyrics
today too often perpetuate misogyny, materialism, and degrading images
that he doesn’t want his daughters or any children exposed to,” said
spokesman Bill Burton. “This song is not only outrageously offensive to
Senator Clinton, Reverend Jackson, Senator McCain, and President Bush,
it is offensive to all of us who are trying to raise our children with
the values we hold dear. While Ludacris is a talented individual he
should be ashamed of these lyrics.”

That’s it, cover that black ass… We’ll see in November.

Editorial: Honestly, is this the best that the Liberals can do?

There have been times, when I, as a Blogger, have wanted to bang my head on the desk. There are times, when I have become so frustrated at the level of stupidity being served by both sides of this political discourse, that I have seriously thought about just shutting this Blog down and disappearing into the mists of ether and finding something else to do. There are times, when I, as a Blogger, have shook my fist in righteous indignation at some of the things written by both sides of this political divide, that is called Politics.

However, this, my friends, is scraping the bottom of the proverbial barrel. It seems that the Liberal Blogging world, with it’s lack of substantive accusations against John McCain, has, in fact, began publishing stories about a topic, that normally would not even receive the light of day in a legitimate publication; His Shoes.

That is right ladies and Gentleman; the liberal bloggers are now publishing stories about John McCain’s shoes. This female blogger at the Huffington Post by the name of Isabel Wilkinson, whose political credentials are that of a Dallas cowboy cheerleader, wrote a rather vain piece about the kind of shoes that John McCain wears. I have to honestly wonder aloud, who in the Huffington Post was the recipient of this woman’s oral sex, for her to get that job as a writer. Because whoever they were, they hired a real winner here.

I am not a John McCain cheerleader, not by a long shot. However, this sort of lame attempt by the left to paint John McCain as some sort of out of touch, rich, elitist is about the lamest thing I have ever read, in a good long while. This ranks up there with the New York Times piece on the supposed affair that McCain was having with a lobbyist.

It is not that I am against criticizing John McCain, not at all. There are legitimate concerns that I have with McCain as well, his closeness to Bush, his ties to lobbyists, his wanting to bomb Iran, but to write an article about his shoes? How absurd. The left can much better than this, and they know it. The quicker they start doing that, the better, because right about now, they look like total idiots in my eyes, and I would imagine in the eyes many other people as well.

Excellent Reading: Chuck Baldwin Says.. "Save The Planet? How About Saving The Republic?"

I post these here, because I believe Chuck Baldwin is a honest voice within the Conservative Community.

Save The Planet? How About Saving The Republic?
By Chuck Baldwin
July 30, 2008

This column is archived at
http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2008/cbarchive_20080730.html

Yesterday, the Politico quoted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as saying, "I’m
trying to save the planet; I’m trying to save the planet." She was
responding, of course, to pressure that she and her fellow Democrats are
experiencing to suspend a congressional ban on offshore oil drilling in the
face of skyrocketing energy prices. It would be really wonderful, however,
if the liberal congresswoman could get as energized about saving our once
great republic.

Herein lies another problem: the vast majority of our politicos (from both
major parties) do not even seem to know what kind of country the United
States was designed to be. Virtually every reference made to the United
States by our civil magistrates is that we are a "democracy." That’s odd;
someone should have told our Founding Fathers, because they emphatically
rejected the concept of creating a "democracy" in favor of creating a
constitutional republic.

Has anyone quoted the Pledge of Allegiance lately? Does it say, "And to the
democracy for which it stands"? Or does it say, "And to the republic for
which it stands"? Of course it says "republic."

At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention, a passerby asked
Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got–a republic or monarchy?"
Franklin replied, "A republic–if you can keep it."

Ladies and Gentlemen, that is the sixty-four million dollar question: Can we
keep our republic? Can we keep our constitutional form of government? Can we
keep our constitutionally protected liberties?

In Federalist No. 10, James Madison ("The Father of the U.S. Constitution")
said, "[D]emocracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention;
have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of
property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been
violent in their deaths."

The fear of what happens to freedom and liberty under democratic rule is
what prompted Madison and the rest of America’s founders to labor so hard to
create what they did: a constitutional republic.

Under God, it is allegiance to the Constitution that has preserved our
liberties, our peace and happiness, our security, and our very way of life.
Furthermore, it is the repudiation and rejection of constitutional
government that is responsible for the manner in which these very same
blessings are currently being lost.

Someone needs to remind Rep. Pelosi that it is not her duty (nor does she
have the power) to "save the planet." And by the same token, someone needs
to remind Senators Barack Obama and John McCain that they are not
campaigning to be President of the World, but President of the United
States.

What every elected officeholder is expected and required to do is very
simple: they are required to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution
of the United States of America. Period. End of story.

Our public servants are not charged with saving the snail darter or the
Spotted Owl, or saving the profits of the international bankers, or saving
Wall Street in general, or saving the perks of corporate lobbyists, or
saving Freddie and Fannie, or saving the peoples of the world from all the
bogeymen, or even saving humankind or the planet itself. What our public
servants are charged with, however, is preserving (saving) our
constitutional republic.

Of course, the problem is, the people who are charged with the preservation
of our republic are the ones who are the most responsible for its
destruction. The American people have far more to fear from Nancy Pelosi,
Barack Obama, and John McCain than they do from any foreign adversary,
because our leaders have proven that they have absolutely no fidelity to the
principles of constitutional government. They have no compunction about
eviscerating the protection of our freedoms, or about abolishing the
vanguard of our liberties. They are Machiavellian, making King George of old
look like a mere amateur.

No, I take that back. It is not our civil magistrates who are most
responsible for the destruction of our republican form of government: it is
"We the people."

At the end of the day, it is the responsibility of the people to govern
themselves. We must be willing to hold our civil magistrates accountable to
the contract they made with us, which is to uphold constitutional
government. It is our duty to "throw off" any system of government that does
not secure our liberties and protect our constitution. And this we have not
done.

Christian pastors and ministers have failed us. The "Religious Right" has
failed us. College professors have failed us. High School teachers have
failed us. Newspaper editors and publishers have failed us. TV news anchors
and reporters have failed us. Parents have failed. Friends have failed. The
two major political parties have failed. As a whole, no one is talking
about, or even thinking about, the loss of constitutional government,
national independence, and sovereignty. Few seem even conscious that this is
taking place.

Worrying about which major party wins a general election is like worrying
about whether Coke or Pepsi sold more soft drinks last month. Pick your
poison. One is just as bad as the other. Neither has any fidelity to the
Constitution or to the principles of liberty, which it represents. Both John
McCain and Barack Obama are enemies to constitutional government. Both are
in the process of sacrificing our national sovereignty to global entities.
Both men lied when they took an oath to preserve and protect the
Constitution. So, why should we care which impostor wins the election?

It is up to the American people to enforce constitutional government. From a
Christian perspective, it is "We the people" who are the "powers that be" in
Romans chapter 13. Under our form of government, the source of authority and
the source of legitimacy reside with "We the people." We are not the slaves
of any king or despot. Our elected leaders are public servants, not private
masters. In a nutshell, they work for us. They are contracted to preserve
our liberties and our way of life. When they fail, they must answer to us.

So, when will the American people pick themselves up by the bootstraps and
start acting like free citizens and stop groveling before these imbecilic
political parties? When will we set this political house in order?

Of course, all of this demands that each of us understands constitutional
government and the principles upon which liberty rests. It also demands that
each of us be prepared to do whatever is our personal duty to preserve this
republic.

Patriotism is more than waving a flag on July 4th, or singing The National
Anthem at a ball game, or wearing a flag lapel pin on Flag Day. For an
American, real patriotism means that we are willing to preserve and protect
our constitutional republic. Remember, Franklin’s answer: "A republic–if
you can keep it."

Nancy Pelosi can talk about saving the planet all she wants to: her duty,
however, is to preserve, protect, and defend the U.S. Constitution. And that
is also the job of every single American citizen. Unfortunately, most of us
are no better at doing our job than Pelosi is at doing hers.

Shocka! Obama is beginning to believe his own hype….

This could be dangerous for the Obamassiah….

From the Trail:

In his closed door meeting with House Democrats Tuesday night, presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama delivered a real zinger, according to a witness, suggesting that he was beginning to believe his own hype.

Not surprising at all. With statements like this:

Obama was waxing lyrical about last week’s trip to Europe, when he concluded, according to the meeting attendee, “this is the moment, as Nancy [Pelosi] noted, that the world is waiting for.”

and….

The 200,000 souls who thronged to his speech in Berlin came not just for him, he told the enthralled audience of congressional representatives. “I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions,” he said, according to the source.

Meh… Oh, he’s a symbol alright, a symbol of Commie Liberalism. He’s also a symbol of the Unconstitutional Civil Right act signed in 1968, by a bunch of Commie Liberals, who felt it was the Government’s place to interfere with a state issue….and we’ve been paying for the tragic mistake, ever since.

Scott McClellan sucks up to Bill O’

This is too funny:

Transcript:

McCLELLAN: The truth is I messed up. I was
specifically not trying to single anyone out, including you. But the
way a couple of the questions were phrased in that interview along with
my response left things open to interpretation and I should not have
let that happen. … I understand why you got upset. … You’re the Big Kahuna at Fox News, and some people tried to paint in a black and white term through a preconceived notion.

But then, Bill let him have it and fireworks broke out:

O’REILLY: Matthews played you.He played you! You should be mad at him!

McCLELLAN: So you don’t owe me an apology for calling me a liar? –

O’REILLY: You are a liar! You said I received talking points and I didn’t!

McCLELLAN: No I didn’t! I was not confirming that. I’m telling you right now —

O’REILLY: Oh you’re parsing the damn thing! Come on, be honest!He baited you! He baited you!You’re crazy! You’re partners with [NBC] in selling your book!

I would politely told that feckless piece of shit to fuck off and die and hung up the phone, if it were me. He’s a fucking asshole, and yes, I am a conservative and saying that. So, Bill if you read this, you’re an asshole.

What kills me is how Scott is sucking up to that feckless windbag. Who cares if he’s pissed? fuck him! Who is he? A big fucking nobody with a large title and small dick, just that simple.

No damn wonder Michelle Malkin quit appearing there.

Okay… Here’s the deal…

I know what many of you are thinking…

“WTF did Paleo-Pat do to his Blog?”

Here’s what happened.

For one, I was not very happy with WordPress. For some reason, I just cannot find a damn template that reflects what this Blog is all about.

I also seem to have moved to a hosting server, which will not allow WordPress to accept or send out, trackback pings.

I dunno if it’s a software bug or this hosting server got a oddball set up or what, but it’s fucking deaf, when it comes to incoming pings and trackbacks. I am pissed about it, But right now there’s fucking zero I can do about it.

Update: I guess it does work.

Anyhow, I thought I’d try a move to MovableType, believe me, when I say this. It was a fucking nightmare! :eek: I’ll never try that again, that’s for sure! Egad. It’s nice, but I could not figure that stuff out, at all. Hell, I could not even get it to work, I FTP’ed it, got the dreaded 500 Error. Internal server error. I did try to fix it, and nothing worked.

So, luckily I was smart enough to grab my entries and various other stuff via the export tool. Well, when I saw that the Moveable type was not going to work, I retreated to WordPress. Well, in the process of coming back, I had to widdle my import file down to 8 megs, so, some of the newer entries here are basically, “Down the memory hole”…

I will say this much, thanks to Ryan, who hooked me up with some awesome hosting, that poor kid puts up with a lot, and with me, that’s saying a WHOLE BUNCH!. :lol:

So…. for now, until I find a nice template that knocks me socks off. It’s the damn default template and limited ads here. I might just keep it like this. If I like it.

Update: I found one, it’s not really want I wanted. But it beats the shit out of default. :D

So, I’m back… for the time being.

-Pat

Now Now, let’s not be picking on the ladies……

The NYT does a piece on Women Bloggers. It gets put in the style section, of all places.

I have two favorites. Rachel Lucas and Mary Katharine Ham, both equally excellent writers and both good looking, The kind of good looking, that makes a guy want to get on all fours and bark like a dog, kind of good looking.

Vox Day, however, is unimpressed. He writes:

If a female blogger wants to be taken seriously, it’s not at all difficult:

1. Have at least half a brain and demonstrate that it actually functions by not writing egregiously stupid stuff.

2. At least 75 percent of your posts should have nothing to do with you or your life.

3. Don’t post a picture or talk about your romantic life, your children or your pets.

4. Don’t threaten to quit blogging every time anyone criticizes you.

5. Learn how to defend your positions with facts and logic instead of
passive-aggressive parthian shots fired off as you run away.

Ummm, Vox? Couldn’t some of those be said of Male Bloggings too? :eek:

How about:

6. Don’t write books about Christianity Versus Atheists, unless you have some sort of formal theological training

Just sayin’…. :D

Harvesting Our Rotten Fruit By J.J. Jackson

This is an insightful commentary by a Libertarian whom I respect.

——

Harvesting Our Rotten Fruit

By: J.J. Jackson

For years liberals of all stripes from socialists to communists to all
out fascists have been planting seeds in our society. It became clear
to them in the early part of this century that America was not quite
ready for the revolutions that swept their fellow travelers into power
across the globe in places like Russia, Germany, France and Italy.
Something about the right of the people to keep and bear arms still
being believed in at the time put serious kinks into that plan. So they
opted for a more subtle approach on America’s shores.

Their approach amounted to what was the original “Operation Chaos”
where the goal was to sow enough seeds that would bear enough rotten
fruit and cause enough pain, suffering and ultimately chaos and then
blame the results not on their policies that caused these things but on
free-markets, liberty and everything America once stood for. Well, it
has worked. We now have orchards full of bad apples, vineyards full of
sour grapes, and many other types of rotten produce from these seeds
sown years ago that are ready to be harvested today. Now liberals are
merrily walking among the trees picking them one by one.

It has taken a while, but the biggest harvest of all is ready to be
presented to us. We have had smaller harvests over the years but none
this large. Even though it looked at times like Americans would turn
their noses up at being handed such unsavory sustenance, the nation
kept turning back to those that planted and tended these crops.

At one time the farm they now tend had been abandoned entirely as
settlers to the New World learned quickly that the rotten fruit of
economic collectivism was not palatable, lead to shortages, suffering
and societal collapse. But then, many years later, others found this
discarded tract of land.

It started small. A seed here. Then another seed there. And slowly but
surely those who started this farm rose to power. Woodrow Wilson
planted the seed of price controls. Franklin D. Roosevelt planted seeds
that would, among other things, blossom into trees whose fruit when
eaten brought massive takings from the paychecks of workers to pay for
the loyalty of senior citizens to the farm.

In the 1960′s LBJ bought stake in a small plot on the farm and planted
vines that grew quickly and entangled much of the other plants. The
fruit they bore brought forth grapes that provided for the
solidification of federal control over the public schools, taxes to
further wed seniors to government through Medicare, and brought the
“poor” on board the farm with Medicaid. And that was only the start.

Over the years since, many others have come along and have been given
their own plots and panted more crops, all only capable of bearing
rotten fruit, but that have flourished surprisingly well as the people
have demanded they keep growing such things. Some crops when planted
provided that banks would lend money to bad risks who had little or no
hope of paying the loans back and then saddling hardworking taxpayers
with the bill. Other crops as they were tended to caused the prices of
commodities to rise by artificially dictating that there would be
limited supplies either by laws that prevented their profitable
creation or by federal subsidy to simply not produce them. Still other
crops produced brown and putrid fruit that established a “minimum wage”
that made it unprofitable for businesses to hire low skilled workers
and increased unemployment or forced these businesses to consider
illegal labor.

Over here there is a patch of smelly pumpkins that ushered in the
belief that it was government’s role to bail people out who made bad
choices with their money. Just beyond those are trees whose pears,
brown and disgusting, brought to us public funding of art that most
Americans would not pay a solitary penny to see but makes aristocratic
wannabes bristle with pride, their noses are in the air, as they look
down upon the masses and such outdated concepts such as religion and
patriotism. And beyond that there is a well established plot on which
is growing fruit which pays people not to work.

Yes, and now the grand harvest is ready. It is being prepared and being
handed to us – all the rotten fruit of all this labor. We are told to
eat it. We are told to accept it. We do not want to, but hey – it’s
free. So maybe we will take it and be happy to make ourselves and our
nation sick.

Perhaps we will make ourselves so sick that we may never recover.

The New York times whines about not having enough graphic war images

You know, I am not a big fan of war myself, But, I couldn’t help by think of the utter hypocrisy of the article by the New York Times.

In essence, the New York Times is whining about not having enough graphic pictures of the war in Iraq.

Quoting a Liberal Photo boy in the NYT:

“It is absolutely censorship,” Mr. Miller said. “I took pictures of something they didn’t like, and they removed me. Deciding what I can and cannot document, I don’t see a clearer definition of censorship.”

This will be continued after the jump… (Warning: the rest contains graphic photos, Not safe for kids!)

German chick sees Obama, goes ga-ga…

Does Michelle know about this?

A few snort worthy quotes:

“Hi, how’s it going?“ asks Obama in his deep voice. My heart beats. “Very good, and you?” I say. Obama replies: “Very good, thank you!”

What? No Halo? Hmmm…

He goes and picks up a pair of 16 kilo
weights and starts curling them with his left and right arms, 30
repetitions on each side. Then, amazingly, he picks up the 32 kilo
weights!
Very slowly he lifts
them, first 10 curls with his right, then 10 with his left. He breathes
deeply in and out and takes a sip of water from his 0,5 litre Evian
bottle.

Oh man, making me moist already… :P :lol:

“My name’s Judith” I reply. “I’m Barack
Obama, nice to meet you!” he says, and puts his arm across my shoulder.
I put my arm around his hip – wow, he didn’t even sweat!
WHAT A MAN!

*snort*

For those wondering… 16 kilos is 78 pounds. :roll:

My thoughts on the aborted Obama visit to the German Hospital

Yes, I have an opinion about this story.

To me, about the only thing that it shows, is a lack of poor judgment by Obama.

To be fair, his Senate staff had already gone home, before the Pentagon called to say that he could not visit as a Presidential Candidate. To some, this suggests that President or his minions tried to interfere. I will not go that far, as I do not believe that the President has an interest at all, in attempting to sabotage Obama’s run for the President. The Pentagon was simply following procedure and most likely was attempting to spare Obama a embarrassing situation.

Further more, I think the right in trying to use this, as some sort of way of discrediting Obama, like McCain, is only going to backfire and make McCain look like a jerk to the general public.
