Insane Thought of the Day

Apotheosis Now.

Directed by Franics Ford Coppola, Screenplay by John Milius.

Starring Martin Sheen as Admiral James T. Kirk, Dennis Hopper as Dr. Leonard McCoy, and Marlon Brando as V'Ger.

The film opens with the fatal Klingon encounter with the V'Ger cloud set to The End by The Doors.

We then fade to a view of San Francisco as seen through a window in Admiral Kirk's apartment.

Kirk (voiceover): Earth. Shit. I was still only on Earth.

And Then...

I stopped over at Powerline and saw this:

I just sent off the book proposal draft for the agent who is going to shop it around. In the chapter dedicated to the fake memos, I gave her a pass on stuff like the typos, fonts, etc., because you guys and others have already proved that. Instead I went against her new defense, repeated ad nauseam, and in bold italics in the above excerpt; that ALL the evidence supports the documents. I was running out of paper in tearing apart her own arguments and exposing glaring errors. One example: Twice in the 6 fakes one finds Bush's service number. Problem here for Mary is that these memos are in 1972 and 73. The Air Force stopped using service numbers on July 1, 1969, and switched over to social security numbers, 3 and 4 years prior. All of Bush's released records had the SSNo blacked out as required by law. But old service numbers from Bush's earlier documents were not redacted...

[The fabricator] grabbed the service numbers from released records, not realizing that they would never show up on a 72-73 document. Irony is, he put the anachronistic service numbers in the wrong format - the FG had to be a prefix, not a suffix, like FG 1234567...For a while we used to put the two letter code FG (means Air Guard; FR means Air Force Reserve, FV means active duty Air Force) as a suffix to the new SSNo ID, as in 987 65 4321FG. Later we dropped the two letter code entirely. [The fabricator's] personal experience was with the 987-65-4321 FV format (actually, the Army Guard used different codes), so when he grabbed the service number from files to add a hint of authenticity to the memos, he probably reverted to habit. Stupid, because if you look at Bush's real records, you will see the letters FG as a prefix - he couldn't even plagiarize correctly!

So we don't have to argue about magic typewriters then, eh?

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Thomas Lifson on why the Left to going batshit crazy:

A sudden loss of status and influence is a profound shock to most people who have spent their lives aimed at the acquisition and enjoyment of socio-political standing. Relieved of the ability to shape the consciousness and behavior of others, a certain number unburden themselves of the inner restraints which kept them from openly voicing the condescension and scorn they have for those whom they regard as their social, intellectual, and moral inferiors.

And that's not all, read the entire piece here.

Leftists as a general rule are material and/or spiritual parasites. Because of this they need to feel that they are in control of the hosts that they feed from.

For Leftists, control is life. Without the apparent certainty that they are control of the productive population the Left's fear of their own perishing kicks in.

Not that there's anything wrong about that... (Evil Grin)

Hat tip to Dr. Ray.

Quote of the Day

From Mark's Signature Quotes pages:

"I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for..."

-- DNC Chairman Howard Dean

That would be the Right of Life, followed by the subsidiary rights of Liberty and Property.

A right of the individual is a restraint upon the powers of government and society as a whole. Which is perfectly all right for those of us who are rational and productive. But to those who irrationally choose parasitism as their mode of existence an individual right is like staring at the muzzle of a shotgun that is aimed at their own heads.

Because a rational individual cannot be expected to willfully consent to having a parasite living continually at their expense, the parasite must resort to force and fraud in order to sustain its own life.

Thus the parasite tend to favor dictatorships, with a fully functional apparatus of censorship and repression, over free societies with governments that are accountable to the citizens.

To the parasite, power over the productive is life.

Any restraint on that power -- be it the freedom of speech and press, the rights to self defense and to bear arms, or the process of democratic election -- is a danger to the parasite's continued existence. Thus the parasite must oppose tyrranicide, the liberation of the oppressed peoples, and the establishment of free republics.

On the issue of violent crime it appears that the sympathies of parasites are not with the victims but are with the criminals, thus they publicly object to the execution of a quadruple murderer but care nothing about his victims.

How could any rational person not be disgusted by such antics?

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Dr. John Ray has something to say about some self-styled philosophers:

And for me any philosophy that fails to give an account of mind, ethics, cause and self is quite simply failed philosophy. And a philosophy that denies that any of those things are real is therefore fit only to be ignored. As it happens, however, there are lots of failed philosophers about and they have somehow conned the taxpayers into paying them a lot of money. They call themselves "postmoderninsts" and, as far as one can make any sense at all of what they say, their essential credo seems to be "nothing is real". When I come across such garbage I tend to be overcome by the wish that I could hit the so-called philosophers over the head with a baseball bat and then say to them: "Don't worry. Nothing is real so I didn't really hit you over the head with a baseball bat. Just carry on as before while I get ready to hit you again". I think reality would be rapidly rediscovered under those circumstances.

As a former U.S. Army combat rifleman I personally prefer the butt-stroke to the head for that sort of thing.

Today in Pizzaland

Some bitch stiffed me on the tip with a check for the exact amount and then had the fucking nerve to call the store to complain about MY conduct.

Never mind the fact that the streets were covered with snow and ice.

And I didn't ask if she was a Democrat.

And for the second night in a row I just started screaming, just incoherent screaming, after returning home.

I had an idea for a screenplay about the pizza delivery business. In it there would be a scene where the main viewpoint character, a driver, returns to the store to find a nun neeling outside the entrance with her rosary in hands praying.

The driver asks the manager what the nun is doing out there.

"Praying for the souls of the damned."

"But why here?"

"Why do robbers rob banks? That's where the money is."

There, I feel better now.

Meanwhile in Pizzaland

Had a long and crappy day at work on Wednesday.

Why is it that when it snows, which increases the hazards of driving, that every fucking idiot in the delivery area has to call and order pizza for delivery?

Must be a bunch of Democrats.

Think Of It As Evolution In Action

From The Corner at NRO via The Instapundit:

CPT does not advocate the use of violent force to save lives of its workers should they be kidnapped, held hostage, or caught in the middle of a conflict situation.

Four members of CPT (Christian Peacemaker Teams) were kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq. But given that pacifists are at best essentially useless to Humanity in General, this would really not be an actual problem. After all the terrorists could have kidnapped and eventually murder four actually innocent people.

The CPT website had an interesting question at the head of its page:

What would happen if Christians devoted the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war?

The answer for those of us who live in the real world is that Christianity would effectively become extinct.

Now, what would the death toll of CPT volunteers in Iraq be if all of them were to have their throats cut by Allah's own death squad?

It would be an acceptable one.

Quote of the Day

The Guru has been kind enough to pass long this quote from President Theodore Roosevelt:

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

The Guru also had this to say about a certain municipality:

It is an axiom that people get the government they deserve. This certainly seems true of San Francisco.

Rant of the Day

I'm posting this in the morning dead thread over at Little Green Footballs:

Gary Trudeau and Ted Rall represent respectively the high and low ends of the visual component of the "intellectual" branch of what I will henceforth call the Kool Kommie Klan.

We must remember that Socialism is essentially a Master/Slave ideology. If you pardon me for quoting the First Trustifarian: From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs. And for the socialists, as with the antebellum slaveholders, the needs of the masters will always be much greater than the needs of the slaves.

But now the socialist master class, both here in the United States and abroad, now see themselves being dispossessed of what according to their ideology is rightfully theirs. Control of their slaves and the products of slave labor. What should not be a surprise to us is that the response of the socialist master class and their supporters is in many ways similar to the actions of the antebellum slaveholder class and their supporters.

Those who reject the chains of the Left are subjected to public ridicule and slander by the self-styled intellectuals and subject to physical violence by the goon squad, with the ski-mask replacing the white sheet as the attire of choice.

If you will pardon me for the use of shocking language, to the master class of the Left, we who reject the chains of Socialism are (regardless of our actual race) no better than a bunch of "Uppity Niggers." It should be no surprise to us that they are treating us as such.

Think Of It As Socialism In Action

Or how not to run a manned space program:

The day after Lin Biao's death, Li Zhengjun and Xu Peigen were at Mount Zijinshan Observatory, Nanjing, to discuss construction of a special astronaut-training machine. Immediately thereafter, Unit 714 came under special scrutiny. '714' was a homonym for 'armed revolt'. The investigators concluded that it must be connected to the plotters in some way. Even though equipped with only one telephone, the security special case team decided that Unit 714 was the headquarters for the alleged coup d'etat. In retrospect it is obvious that the office could not have been connected with the alleged plot, since Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai had signed the order to establish the office, but not Lin Biao. Such considerations did not deter the investigators and the leaders of the unit were detained for sustained interrogation.

Nevertheless the project was not cancelled and those that remained continued their work. The astronauts reported for training by November 1971. The immediate problem was that the budget was not in hand to fulfil the training plans. Major General Yang Guoyu and State Planning Committee Director Yu Qiuli were in charge of the material supply for the project. The spacecraft mock-up, housed in a large hall, was built of wood and cardboard. Astronaut food in toothpaste tubes was being produced, while the astronauts were supposed to undergo their strenuous training regime living only on steamed bread.

Qian Xuesen himself was unwilling to bring up the issue of provision of necessary funds with Zhou Enlai. Finally Yu Qiuli attended a meeting where Mao himself was presented with the need for additional funds. Mao reacted by blaming the project staff for inadequate moral resolve and declared that the nation must take care of terrestrial needs first. Space could come later. Faced with no budget, and pilots that had not been able to fly for months, the astronauts were released to return to their units. On May 13, 1972, the final staff member of Office 714 returned to his unit and China's first manned space project was officially wound up.

Apparently the initial design for a Chinese manned spacecraft would basically be a clone of the American Gemini system.

Sometimes it really helps when the enemy is being stupid.

Announcement

The Dumb Plumber has moved over to blogspot.

Why he calls himself a "dumb" plumber is something that is beyond logical understanding, for example:

Chris Ewen’s letter to the editor on Friday correctly points out that most of the ‘children’ killed by guns are actually, gang members, thugs, rapists, murderers and muggers, whose numbers shouldn’t be combined with innocent children to ‘fluff’ statistics. This is a very important observation and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Since children will always be killed by guns through accident, mishandling, and gross stupidity, these losses should be minimized by caring parents and not lawmakers. On the other hand, the aforementioned murderers, gangsters, etc., should be required to attend target practice, so that their intended victims will be sporting toe tags instead of filling the jails and hospitals at taxpayer expense, after the inevitable confrontations.

Hopefully the improved aim will severely reduce their numbers and ultimately improve the prospects for the rest of us.

Oh... sarcasm...

A Question

Dr. Sanity raises the following question about the Democrats:

What does it take to get serious about the fact that we are fighting for our survival as a civilization?

I would as a guess give the answer that the Democrats are fully well aware of the fact that we are fighting for the survival of civilization and that they are for all practical purposes on the opposite side.

Civilization in both the moral and economic aspects is based on the principle of consent. But since productive people cannot tolerate any form of sustained parasitism, those who seek to exist as parasites must destroy the society of consent and replace it with a political order where the parasites would enjoy a superior status over the productive.

One form of the rule of the parasites is called Islam, another form is called Socialism.

(And I should point out here that Socialism is toxic to humans whether it is practiced by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union or the National Socialist German Worker's Party. It doesn't matter if grape flavoring or orange flavoring is added to the toxic brew -- poison is poison.)

(And another thing: What part of "National Socialist German Worker's Party" do some university produced drones not understand?)

The good doctor goes on to say:

If I saw an individual behaving as our country's leaders in Congress are behaving right now, I would have to conclude that they are acutely suicidal and represent an imminent danger to all of us.

Absolutely God-damned right.

Somebody May Be Seeing The Fnords

In the comments section of Dr. Sanity's discussion on BDS, Ric Locke puts forth another possible factor in the possible origin of Bush Derangment Syndrome:

BDS sufferers are overwhelmingly members of the intelligentsia, at least as self-defined: academics, "artists", and the commentariat, and related wannabees. They have in common membership in a subculture that is, geographically, largely confined to cities and the Northeast, and tends strongly to be passed down in families.

George W. Bush had every opportunity to become one of them. His father is a member in good standing of that culture; his mother is a Pierce. Absent malign influences, a reasonable person could have looked at young George and predicted that he would grow up to be, for all practical purposes, John Kerry.

Instead he went off and actually joined the "red staters", complete with religiosity and drawl. Apostasy always causes heartburn in the Faithful -- the fear that, if it happened to him, it could happen to them or their descendants, too. How could such a thing happen? Shun him! Shun him!

This reinforces the evidence that Leftism is for all practical purposes a religion.

And Then She...

Ann Coulter writes about the quality of the courage of Edward R. Murrow while ripping George Clooney a new terminal orifice (with a Hat Tip to Hog On Ice):

As even liberal reviewers have noted, it was hardly an act of bravery for Edward R. Murrow to attack McCarthy. The New York Times was attacking McCarthy, The New York Post was attacking McCarthy and The Washington Post was attacking McCarthy. Every known news outlet was attacking McCarthy. McCarthy was in a pitched battle for his life, his career and the fate of the nation. Murrow merely jumped on the liberal bandwagon -- and rather late in the game. (You want bravery? Try sitting all the way through "Solaris.")

I own the DVD of Soderbergh's version of SOLARIS. I usually play it with the commentary track on because I found the conversation between Steven Soderbergh and Jim Cameron on the making of the movie to far more interesting than the film itself.

For real bravery in sitting through a movie one should try viewing the orginal Soviet version of SOLARIS in one sitting. Of course Andrei Tarkovski's version of SOLARIS was by Soviet standards a good film, having not been cut in any way by the Soviet censors. Of course being (Les affects a Russian accent here) a good Soviet film, it was not subject to the aesthetic and editorial standards that were common outside of the Soviet Union. My personal theory on the origin of the film was that Mosfilm Studios was short about two hours and forty minutes in the science fiction quota in the current Five-Year Plan and turned to Tarkovski to fill the gap:

"Comrades, we are short one-hundred and sixty-five minutes in our science fiction quota! What shall we do?"

"Have Tarkovski fill it for us."

"But Tarkovski makes really dense and boring films!"

"Comrades! We must make every effort to heroically fulfill the goals of the Five-Year Plan!"

Or something like that.

Granted, the cinematography (apart from the cheesy effects sequences) was well done and Miss (or I suppose at the time, comrade) Natalya Bondarchuk comes across as being more talented and visually interesting than any of the current generation of Hollywood glamdroids, the original Soviet version of SOLARIS was just too damned long. A properly edited version would more closely resemble the Soderbergh version, except that the actors would actually have talent and would lack any visible signs of a trip to the plastic surgeon. (Something about Natascha McElhone's lips just says collagen injection with big ugly letters, this is something that just ruins a movie for me.)

Thought for the Day

I just posted this thought in a comments section over at Political Yen/Yang on the nature of the Left:

They have an idea, it is to replace the society of social and economic consent that we live in with the social and economic primacy of the parasites over the productive. Or as their primary philosophical source (and founding trustifarian) put it, "from each according to their ability, to each according to their needs." And as there is no limit to the needs of the parasite masters there will be no limit on the burdens imposed on the productive slaves.

Poison is poison no matter how much grape flavoring one adds to it. They cannot avoid knowing that their ideal society is toxic to us and thus have no effective choice but to attack the opposition on trivial issues in order to head off a public examination of their basic ideological premises.

Political ideology is basically a means of giving the appearance of positive virtue to actions that are morally intolerable to the victims.

Catholic World News report:

Thought for the Day

A comment I posted over at Political Yen/Yang concerning the lack of an effective response to Muslim rioters by the self-styled national government of France:

We have to remember that the Left (wherever it is) regards existing societies as an evil to demolished in order to make way for their perfect fantasy collective. Anyone, or any group, that acts in defense of the existing society is evil in the eyes of the Left.

Which is of course why the Left passionately hates the Police and the Armed Forces, both of whom have traditionally stood in the path of Holy Marxist Revolution and thus the establishment of the Holy Communist Society where all activities and relationships are dictated by the self-appointed revolutionary saviors and enforced by the compulsary power of the state.

The obvious corrolary is the Left appears to have a passionate love for the destroyers of civil society such as violent criminals and organized terrorists. They appear to especially found of those who murder police officers, such as Fidel Castro and Whatever Whatever Mumia. (No, I won't bother to look up the correct spelling.)

For a Leftist government (pardon the contradiction) to authorize the use of deadly force against any group of rioters would constitute a betrayal of its fundamental political premise, that civil society -- where economic and social relationships are based on consent -- is fit only for destruction.

Everybody's A Fucking Idiot!

Steve H, writing from the Holy City of Coral Gables, Florida writes about a certain propaganda musical:

I just saw an ad for the movie, Rent. I can't believe this botched abortion of a show is popular enough to become a movie. Have you seen it? I saw it a few years ago, on a trip to New York.

Here's the basic plot: there are a bunch of poorly defined characters living in the general area of Greenwich Village. One of them gets AIDS. The other characters are real sympathetic. Then another gets AIDS. Then another one. Then another one. Pretty soon, everyone except the audience is sick. Various characters die. There's a lot of singing. The show ends with no resolution, as if the playwright went out for coffee while writing the last act and never came back.

That covers it, pretty much. The message? I wasn't able to figure that out. I know they were trying to say, "AIDS is real bad." Point taken. I don't recall anyone taking the center of the stage and saying, "Hey, maybe we should stop screwing around and shooting up!"

Few things outside of the realm of Islam can be as disgusting as a bunch of overgrown spoiled brats indulging in narcisistic whining about the consequences of their own irrational behavior.

These fucking idiots complain that the United States government spends billions on munitions and delivery systems while the search for a cure to their pet disease goes unfunded.

I have some news for those fucking idiots, there is no fucking cure for fucking stupidity.

The national defense of the United States, whose citizens are for the most part decent, rational, and productive, is mandated by the Constitution. There is not one word in the Constitution that mentions, let alone mandates, that the Federal Government do anything to clean up the mess made by self-indulgent fucking idiots who act without even the pretense of rational foresight.

The fucking idiots chose the path of mindless pleasure and indulged in unrestrained sodomy and heroin use. In doing so the fucking idiots had dug their own graves. Well now the fucking idiots can now fucking well lay in them.

I would tell the fucking idiots to fuck off but that would be fucking redundant.

The Problem With Tyrannicide

Samizdata was kind enough to dig up this quote:


"The Bush administration is the most dangerous force that has ever existed. It is more dangerous than Nazi Germany because of the range and depth of its activities and intentions worldwide."

-- 2005 Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter

One has to wonder what psychoactive substance Mr. Pinter has ingested, and how to avoid being dosed with it ourselves.

I was going to do a rant which would speculate on how anyone, including Comrade Pinhead, could possibly believe that Liberation is Oppression or that Tyrannicide is Murder, and that using a portion of the national armed forces to knock over a couple of dictatorships is somehow more vile than totally mobilizing an entire nation in order to wage a total war of conquest and subjugation against an entire world.

And then the Honorable Sir Banagor creates a totally dead on target rant on the subject of these intellectual wanna-bes.

Truth Burns, Doesn't It Bitch?

Humberto Fontova at Capitalism Magazine puts Che Guevara in perspective:

Nazi Germany became the modern standard for political evil even before World War II. Yet in 1938, according to both William Shirer and John Toland, the Nazi regime held no more than 20,000 political prisoners. Political executions up to the time might have reached a couple thousand, and most of these were of renegade Nazis themselves during the indiscriminate butchery known as the "Night of the Long Knives." The famous Kristallnacht that horrified civilized opinion worldwide caused a grand total of 71 deaths. This in a nation of 70 million.

Cuba was a nation of 6.5 million in 1959. Within three months in power, Castro and Che had shamed the Nazi prewar incarceration and murder rate. One defector claims that Che signed 500 death warrants, another says over 600. Cuban journalist Luis Ortega, who knew Che as early as 1954, writes in his book "Yo Soy El Che!" that Guevara sent 1,897 men to the firing squad. In his book "Che Guevara: A Biography," Daniel James writes that Che himself admitted to ordering "several thousand" executions during the first few years of the Castro regime.

And Now For Something Completely Different

The Normandy Invasion as it would be covered by the present day Mainstream Media:

June 6th, 1944 — Normandy

Around three hundred French civilians were murdered yesterday and an undetermined number were injured during the first hours of the American invasion of continental Europe. Most of the French victims were due to artillery shots coming from the American fleet that was trying to hit German fortifications on the coast before thousands of soldiers proceeded to land on several of the beaches.

Think Of It As Idiocy In Action

Left Coast Progressives show how much they love freedom of speech:

We also had an attempted disruption opening night, when two left-wing protesters rushed the stage and attempted to attack David Horowitz. Fortunately, our very own Jason Apuzzo, plus volunteer Daniel Crandall, Chris Cook, and several others got to them first and dragged them out of the auditorium kicking and screaming. Ironically enough, David Horowitz was speaking about the need for free speeech and academic freedom at the very moment the protesters ran up on the stage shouting “Fascists have no right to speak! You have no right to speak! We don’t want your right wing **** here!” etc. etc. Several other protesters at the back of the auditorium also tried to drown out Horowitz with shouts, but were shouted down by the audience (led by Melrose Larry Green!). A half hour later a carload of more protesters showed up at the front of the Pacific Design Center, but were turned away by security. Many thanks to the West Hollywood Sherrif’s office for their prompt response in escorting these sterling examples of tolerance and free speech advocacy off the PDC property.

The one word that tyrants, and those who seek to become tyrants, do not want to hear is the word "NO."

Even to suggest that a person has the right to say NO is the equivalent of speaking a death sentence to tyrants and wanna-be tyrants.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Windrider at Silent Running wrote:

Bin Laden'’s dream is not so different from the delusions of Adolf Hitler. Power. Absolute power. But Hitler isn'’t really even in the same league of dreamers as Stalin and Bin Laden, or at least he never was able to come close to realizing the same scope of control - because good men recognized his evil, and stood forth to stop him.

On one day of that struggle, 4,900 Americans lost their lives. In one single day. Are there those who claim that their deaths were meaningless? Or that their cause not worthwhile? Europe liberated from Nazi tyranny. A wholesale mass-murder industry put out of business, with the camps of mechanized death dismantled.

In two and a half years, America has lost 2,000 US Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines. In a task with the same goals as that which took 4900 in a single day. The opposition of tyranny. The dismantlement of a culture of death. The liberation of millions of people such that they may choose their destiny, instead of having it imposed upon them by fear.

2,000. In two and a half years.

A high cost, to be sure. But not as high a price as has been exacted in the past.

Terror is merely the method. The ultimate goal is the establisment and maintainance of a state of tyranny.

It does not matter if the tyrants calls themselves Communists, National Socialists, or Theocrats, they simply cannot be reasoned with. Negotiations, summit meetings, and other gestures of good will cannot stop them. Like any predatory animal they can only be driven off and ultimately destroyed.

If we are to continue to live a proper human life then the hunting season on tyrants and those who willingly support them must always be open.

"I've been here now almost 37 years," Stevens said. "This is the first time I have seen any attempt of any senator to treat my state in a way different from any other state."

The not terribly honorable Mr. Stevens appears to be fully immersed in the corrupt culture of using the contents of the public treasury to buy votes for himself. This is a practice that has to held in disrepute and ultimately brought to an end if our republic is to have a future.

Bullshit Is Bullshit

Over at Mark's blog someone wrote as a comment:

Why don't you guys buy a ticket to Rush Limbaugh's show on Broadway; liberals and progressives are not communists or socialists. At least we don't need a qualifier, like "compassionate" in front of what we are...

I wrote in reply:

In Europe, people like Mark and Myself who believe in the society of consent, with citizen-ruled republics and voluntary commerce (a.k.a. capitalism), are still called liberals. Here the term liberal is now used to denote someone who seeks to expand the power of the state over every aspect of life with out regard to the consequences.

In the New Devil's Dictionary liberalism is thus defined:

Liberal, Classical: Someone who believes that the rest of Mankind has something better to do. Believes that the helpless and innocent should be protected and deeply cares about the condition of Western Civilization.

Liberal, Modern: Someone who believes the the rest of Mankind has nothing better to do. Believes that the helpless and innocent should be attacked and deeply hates Western Civilization.


As to the claim that the term progressive and that the present usage of the term liberal somehow denotes something other than a socialist or an outright communist we should note that each term denotes someone who rejects consent as the basis of economic and social relations and seeks to expand the power of the state in all areas of human life without regard to the consequences.

Or as the New Devil's Dictionary puts it:

Progressive: Someone who won't admit to being a communist, usually for fear of being properly treated as one.

Poison is still poison regardless of what it is called. And bullshit is still bullshit.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Matt Margolis at Blogs For Bush wrote:

I caught some of the coverage of Saddam Hussein's trial this morning... And I began wondering if Saddam Hussein is going to be the next Mumia for the radical left.

Think about it, there are liberals in this country who believe that Saddam Hussein was a legitimately elected dictator of Iraq, but don't believe George W. Bush is the legitimately elected President of the United State

I replied:

That's the problem for them. George W. Bush is the President of the United States, subject to the Constitution and the will of the electorate, and not the American manefestation of Big Brother.

Socialists are inherently parasitic and thus cannot take "no" for an answer to their demands for obedience and the material goods they need to exist. If they did so they would wither away and die.

A dictator, on the other hand, does not have to take "no" for answer. Thus socialists are by necessity inclined to favor dictatorships over citizen-ruled republics.

When they see a dictator in the dock, they see their own hopes and desires go with him.

Do I really need to say more?
_

A Question

Do we want this individual to be elected president?

Hillary Clinton was arrogant and vocally abusive to her security detail. She forbade her daughter, Chelsea, from exchanging pleasantries with them. Sometimes Chelsea, miffed at her mother's obvious conceit and mean spiritedness ignored her demands and exchanged pleasantries regardless, but never in her mother's presence. Chelsea really was a nice, kindhearted, and lovely young lady. The consensus opinion was that Chelsea loved her Mom but did not like her.

Hillary Clinton was continuously rude and abrasive to those who were charged to protect her life. Her security detail dutifully did their job, as professionals should, but they all "loathed" her and wanted to be on a different detail. She was hard to work for because she was so nasty and mean toward her detail. Hillary Clinton was uniformly despised by the Secret Service as a whole.

Do I want Hillary to be elected president?

I certainly do not.

Whereas I usually have a deep loathing for the ordinary socialist, who is either a moron or a parasite with delusions of cleverness. I have to admit that I am afraid of Hillary. This individual appears to have no internal moral governor. No sense of shame or decency. None of the respect that ordinary people have for other persons.

Whereas Republican Presidents, and Jimmy Carter, were Christian gentlemen and behaved appropriately, Hillary appears, even as the so-called First Lady, to have assumed the demeanor of the totalitarian ubermensch. Showing what appears to be utter contempt for mere mortals, even those who are tasked with the protection of her life.

For all of his monsterousness even Adolf Hitler was not so stupid as to piss on his own security detail. Hillary, on the other hand, appears to be asking for it. I simply cannot imagine any Secret Service Agent taking a bullet for her.

The fact of the matter is that I am afraid of Hillary and what she will do if she were to be elected to the office of President.

She appears to have an unrestrained lust for power. She appears to look upon those of us who rationally refuse to submit to her will as criminals.

And I simply cannot imagine her quietly stepping aside were she to turfed out of office by the voters. She appears to the kind of individual who would order a reign of terror and murder against those who oppose her. And many of her supporters appear to be the kind of individuals who would be happy to obey such orders.

If Hillary were elected I would not envy the man who holds the position of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. I would only hope that he does his duty for the good of the Republic.

Blast From The Past

Something I once wrote on the subject of peace:

Peace in the real world is simply the absence of those -- such as the socialists -- who seek to deprive you, I, and our fellow citizens of our own Life, Liberty, and Property. Real peace can only be achieved by the physical isolation or outright elimination of those who seek to subjugate, plunder and murder us. This can only be done through the use of physical force.

In short, true peace can only be achieved only through the possession of superior firepower and the moral will to use it.

This is an example of the mental inversion on the Left that George Orwell warned us about.

That's Amazing!

The New York Times actually correctely reported something:

If you trusted the stampeding herd of what Hunter Thompson called the “press wizards,” over the past century, you’d find yourself ruefully misinformed about major events. To cite just a few examples, they’d have told you that the Titanic didn’t sink, Hitler had given up on being a dictator and only wanted peace, there was no famine and no liquidations under Stalin in the 1930s Soviet Union and, to cite a more recent example, one quarter of the United States non-IV-drug using population would be dead from AIDS by 1990, i.e. roughly 60 million people... The first example is somewhat disingenuous, but still noteworthy: the New York Evening Sun, Wall Street Journal, and Los Angeles Express all reported that the Titanic had not sunk, all passengers were safe, and the ship had been safely towed to Halifax. In that case, the New York Times actually did get the story right, and they were chastised by the others for reporting that the ship had sunk. The reason they reported as they did was that “everybody knew” it was an unsinkable ship. Never mind that it sank. OK, that was in the earliest days of wireless transmission, so we’ll cut some slack.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

A blast from the past from the Dissident Frogman's blog:

On The Texas Chainsaw Massacre:

But talking about TCM, -- which despite a persistent rumor, is not based on a true story: it's very loosely inspired by the sick bastard, victim of the society fetishist and cannibal serial killer Ed Gein's life as with know it. In fact, Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel mostly used bits and pieces (No pun intended. Okay, just a... bit... Darn! Forget about it) of Gein's story: the farm of course but also Ed's Human Bones and Skin artisanal furniture. But no chainsaw, no Texas, no hippies traveling in a Volkswagen minibus: Ed lived in Wisconsin, 1950 -- I won't mention the outstanding staging, direction, crappy photography turned into art and serving so brilliantly the ambiance of the movie and therefore its purpose. These are, after all, subject to discussion.

That said, to find "no message" in a 1974 independent movie (the important words are "independent" and "1974") staging a group of hippies suddenly confronted to a bunch of unprincipled wackos focused on the idea of hunting and eating anything that runs on two legs and utterly immune to the virtue of unilateral peace, love (Imagine all the people. In the seasoning bowl) as well as 12 years plus 19 UN resolutions (it's just an example), frankly, one has to watch this movie in a very superficial way.

Or be a former - or "neo" - love loving hippy I guess.

These poor peaceful "methodically hunted down and disposed of in brutal fashions" young people. How sick! How vile! How immoral!

Can you please put down that chainsaw and stop eating the fleshy love children of peace Mr. Leatherface?

A List For Today

On the anniversary of the destructtion of that murderer.

Thanks to Tex at Whacking Day!

Ten Shots At Che Guevara
By Alvaro Vargas Llosa

Che Guevara fans are preparing to commemorate one more anniversary of the revolutionary’s death, which took place thirty-eight years ago at the Yuro ravine in Bolivia. It’s an appropriate time to address ten myths that keep Guevara’s cult alive.

The last time I visited the Museum of Modern Art in New York, an American student wearing a Che Guevara T-Shirt and a beret caught my eye (the fact that Nicole Kidman happened to walk in at that very moment may have had something to do with my noticing him). I asked him politely what exactly he admired so much about that man. Here are the ten reasons he mentioned— and my response:

1. HE WAS AGAINST CAPITALISM. In fact, Guevara was for state capitalism. He opposed the wage labor system of “appropriating surplus value” (in Marxist jargon) only when it came to private corporations. But he turned the “appropriation of the workers’ surplus value” into a state system. One example of this is the forced labor camps he supported, starting with Guanahacabibes in 1961.

2. HE MADE CUBA INDEPENDENT. In fact, he engineered the colonization of Cuba by a foreign power. He was instrumental in turning Cuba into a temporary beachhead of Soviet nuclear power (he sealed the deal in Yalta). As the person responsible for the “industrialization” of Cuba he failed to end the country’s dependency on sugar.

3. HE STOOD FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE. In fact, he helped ruin the economy by diverting resources to industries that ended up in failure and reduced the sugar harvest, Cuba’s mainstay, by half in two years. Rationing started under his stewardship of the island’s economy.

4. HE STOOD UP TO MOSCOW. In fact, he obeyed Moscow until Moscow decided to ask for something in return for its massive transfers of money to Havana. In 1965 he criticized the Kremlin because it had adopted what he termed the “law of value”. He then turned to China on the eve of the Cultural Revolution, one of the horror stories of the twentieth century. He simply switched allegiances within the totalitarian camp.

5. HE CONNECTED WITH THE PEASANTS. In fact, he died precisely because he never connected with them. “The peasant masses don’t help us at all,” he wrote in his Bolivian diary before he was captured—an apt way to describe his journey through the Bolivian countryside trying to stir up a revolution that could not even enlist the help of Bolivian Communists (who were realistic enough to note that peasants did not want revolution in 1967; they had already had one in 1952).

6. HE WAS A GUERRILLA GENIUS. With the exception of Cuba, every guerrilla effort he helped set up failed pitifully. After the triumph of the Cuban revolution, Guevara set up revolutionary armies in Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Panama, and Haiti, all of which were crushed. He later persuaded Jorge Ricardo Masetti to lead a fatal incursion into that country from Bolivia. Guevara’s role in the Congo in 1965 was both tragic and comical. He allied himself with Pierre Mulele and Laurent Kabila, two butchers, but got entangled in so many disagreements with the latter—and relations between Cuban and Congolese fighters were so strained—that he had to flee. Finally, his incursion in Bolivia ended up in his death, which his followers are commemorating this Sunday.

7. HE RESPECTED HUMAN DIGNITY. In fact, he had a habit of taking other people’s property. He told his followers to rob banks (“the struggling masses agree to rob banks because none of them has a penny in them”) and as soon as the Batista regime collapsed he occupied a mansion and made it his own—a case of expeditious revolutionary eminent domain.

8. HIS ADVENTURES WERE A CELEBRATION OF LIFE. Instead, they were an orgy of death. He executed many innocent people in Santa Clara, in central Cuba, where his column was based in the last stage of the armed struggle. After the triumph of the revolution, he was in charge of “La Cabaña” prison for half a year. He ordered the execution of hundreds of prisoners—former Batista men, journalists, businessmen, and others. A few witnesses, including Javier Arzuaga, who was the chaplain of “La Cabaña”, and José Vilasuso, who was a member of the body in charge of the summary judicial process, recently gave me their painful testimonies.

9. HE WAS A VISIONARY. His vision of Latin America was actually quite blurred. Take, for instance, his view that the guerrillas had to take to the countryside because that is where the struggling masses lived. In fact, since the 1960s, most peasants have peacefully deserted the countryside in part because of the failure of land reform, which has hindered the development of a property-based agriculture and economies of scale with absurd regulations forbidding all sorts of private arrangements.

10. HE WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE UNITED STATES. He predicted Cuba would surpass the GDP per capita of the U.S. by 1980. Today, Cuba’s economy can barely survive thanks to Venezuela’s oil subsidy (about 100,000 barrels a day), a form of international alms that does not speak too well of the regime’s dignity.

Alvaro Vargas Llosa is a Senior Fellow and director of The Center on Global Prosperity at the Independent Institute. He is the author of Liberty for Latin America.

Rant of the Day

Someone whom I presume to be just another [expletive] Leftist wrote as a comment to an earlier post:

Is it true that Americans are easily offended? Is it true they can't take a joke? Americans always claim that they have the most tolerant religion/country/political system in the world, but they start paranoying when they see someone complaining about the fact that they are throwing bombs everywhere? Are we going totally nuts here?

For the moment I'm going to treat this as a legitimate question and not as merely another leftist sneer.

(And what collective consciousness died and left this jerk-off as the voice of "the rest of the world" anyway?)

One of the fundamental problems with the Left is that they have apparently trained themselves to ignore distinctions, such as the distinction between producers and parasites. The Left has also shown themselves to be blind to the sequence of cause and effect. Both of these bad habits appear to benefit the adherents of the "primacy of the parasite" ideologies that were invented by such parasites as Marx and Mohammed.

Now as a rule I believe that bad jokes and other falsehoods can generally be ignored as noise. Demands for submission can be dismissed with contempt. Acts of violence should be answered with deadly force. And that any state, organization, or individual that willfully supports Marxist or Islamic terrorism is simply asking for it.

Willful destruction of human life can only be evil if the killer has a choice in the matter. When someone deliberately exercises force against us or against an innocent third party then we are deprived of a choice on the issue, we must respond with force. Furthermore, when one has to knock over a terror sponsoring state like the Ba'ath Party regime in Iraq (which would still be a socialist terror sponsoring state without Saddam in charge), one has the obligation to leave a functional government in its place.

(I can understand why some socialists prefer dictatorships over democracies, the productive voters might actually vote NO to their own enslavement to the parasites.)

As to the accusation that we are "throwing bombs everywhere", no, we are not.

We are deliberately dropping ordinance on targets. The deadfall ordinance is fitted with precision guidance systems (laser designation or GPS signal) in order to avoid inflicting damage on non-targets. Hell, we are fitting guidance units to bomb casings filled concrete. In effect, we are dropping precision guided rocks on some of those bastards. All this just to avoid harming the non-targeted.

We did not start this war. It began when the false prophet Mohammed took up the sword against those who refused to submit to his depraved will. Those who choose to lay down the sword of Islam and join human civilization will be welcomed as friends. Those who continue to wield the sword of Islam against Humanity are going to have that sword shoved up their terminal orifice.

Normally I find answering lefties to be about as enjoyable as taking out the trash. But if the trash isn't taken out one ultimately ends up living in an uninhabitable dump.

Some Questions

Leon de Winter asks:

Is it true that Muslim workers are easily offended? Is it true they can't take a joke? Muslims always claim that they have the most tolerant religion in the world, but they start complaining when they see someone taking a tissue from a box on which they see the sweet lines of Piglet? Are we going totally nuts here?

DeLay Indicted for Criminal Evil

HOUSTON (DPI) — GOP Majority Leader Tom DeLay was indicted last week for one count of criminal evil, one count of conspiracy to commit evil, and one count of attempted evil. The indictment charges that DeLay commanded various forces of darkness and brought about instances of both pestilence and war. Unnamed co-conspirators include a black cat named Greymalkin and a man known to authorities only as "the Antichrist." DeLay blamed his legal troubles on what he termed "anti-evil bias," saying "They’re just out to get me because they hate Satan-fearing Americans."

Jesus fucking Christ! (L. Ron fucking Hubbard for the Scientologists) If Hillary gets in the White House our republic is fucked! Hell, Humanity as a whole will be fucked!

This is the sort of shit that will make it easier for that Stalinist bitch Hillary to get elected. 2008 will be their last chance to regain the presidency, and because they are serving the "holy" cause of socialism there will be no fucking way that they will ever allow themselves to be turfed out of the highest office ever again. Socialism can only be maintained by a dictatorship and do not doubt for a minute that Hillary will try to establish one.

From now on the rule of thumb for any legally questionable financial transaction is, when in doubt, don't.

The abuse of the criminal justice system for partisan purposes is a crime against the citizens of this republic and Comrade Earle should be removed from office and punished as severely as possible. Too bad hanging is not an option here.

And if someone sees Senator Kennedy, ask him how Mary Jo is doing.

Former FEMA Director Michael Brown:

"My biggest mistake was not recognizing by Saturday that Louisiana was dysfunctional."

Unlike Democrats, Mr. Brown does not pretend to be infallible.

C'est Pathétique

From the world of crime:

SHAWNEE, Kan. (AP) - A would-be carjacker got away with nothing more than the keys Monday after he apparently was thwarted by the vehicle's manual transmission.

The thief was armed with a shotgun when he ordered a 26-year-old man out of his Chevrolet Camaro in a suburban Kansas City parking lot. The driver complied, but when the robber got into the car he was unable to manage the stick shift.

The robber fled the scene in a four-door car that someone else was driving.

I don't know what to say.

I should think that it is common knowledge that the "coolest" cars out there have manual transmissions. I actully prefer to drive a manual over driving an automatic.

But then it really doesn't take any knowledge to be a criminal.

As its most enthusiastic promoter, I am often asked when I think the first space elevator might be built. My answer has always been: about 50 years after everyone has stopped laughing. Maybe I should now revise it to 25 years.

Oh Really?

There are 4,755 dead voters in New Jersey:

More than 6,500 voters cast ballots both in New Jersey and another state in last November's election, while 4,755 ballots were cast by deceased voters, Republican State Committee Chairman Tom Wilson said.

In addition, 54,601 people are registered to vote in two New Jersey counties, and 4,397 of them cast ballots in both places last fall, Wilson said.

So what else is new?

Of course the Donks had to respond:

"If the Republican Party conducted the investigation, it's safe to assume that the facts and figures are wrong and the findings are suspect," Democratic spokesman Richard McGrath said. "If an investigation is needed, it should be done the right way, not the Republican way."

Of course for the Donks the right way is a dog and pony show where the evidence conveniently disappears and their party is absolved of all wrongdoing.

So could someone explain to me again what the difference between the Democratic Party a criminal gang is?

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Dr. Samuel Gregg on Marx and Marxism:

A consistent anti-human vision features throughout Marx’s thought. For Marx, man is a being whose origins are irrelevant, whose future is extinction, and whose present is beyond his control. Even people living in Marx’s Communist society have no possibility of a meaningful existence. Marx once described Communist society as one in which it would be possible “to do one thing today and another tomorrow; to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, breed cattle in the evening and criticize after dinner, just as I please.”

This sounds idyllic until one realizes that, from Marxism’s perspective, none of these activities can have any value for humans. For true materialists, there can be no qualitative difference between reading and fishing, working or sleeping, living or dying. Everything has the same value and therefore no value. In this world, there is no difference between Mother Teresa’s work and that of a concentration camp guard. They share equally in a general irrelevance of everything and everyone.

This tells us that Marxism cannot be interested in justice or liberty. It insists that we are like driftwood, floating hither and thither on the waves of history. In such a world, our lives matter naught. Our deaths are irrelevant. We merely try and salvage whatever animal satisfaction we can from life, before our essential nothingness is finalized in our ultimate annihilation as living beings.

So much for Marx’s humanism. A more serious problem with Marxist philosophy is its legitimatizing of criminality.

By “criminal,” I do not simply mean the occasional breaking of law. Rather, I mean a situation whereby people decide that they are above law; that they are not subject to law; that law is merely another tool of power. For if Marxism is right and materialism is true, then systematic violence to pursuit political goals is acceptable.

The irony is that while millions today know about the Nazis’ unspeakable crimes, rather fewer know about the atrocities committed by Lenin, Stalin, Castro, Pol Pot and other Marxists. It is as if there has been a subtle agreement not to discuss these crimes. This studied ignorance manifests itself when we observe red flags emblazoned with hammers and sickles waved at demonstrations. Do their wavers know what the red flag means for those who were enslaved and killed by Marxist regimes? Why is Marxism’s red flag not treated with the same contempt rightly attached to the swastika?

Moses, Call Your Office!

Louisiana, like an ancient kingdom at the outlet of another great river, has been taking some Old Testament style abuse this year. Varifrank predicts that another Biblical plague is about to hit the Kingdom of the Kingfish:

Lawyers. Lots and Lots of Lawyers.

And the multitude of lawyers shall bringeth forth a multitude of lawsuits.

(Les, cut out the mock Biblical verse!)

Right.

And with the multi... um... mass of litigation there will be a virtually anal examination of the public spending habits of Louisiana politicians. Why funds allocated at the federal, state, and local levels were not spent on emergency preparedness training and infrastructure, and what offshore bank accounts did it go into.

As a result Varifrank makes the following prediction:

Once the Lawyers start finding corruption it will be very much like the effects of a second flood only this time, it'’s a flood that will sweep away the Democrat political machine that has run Louisiana since the Civil War.

To the Democrat party, its as if they just lost a capital city in their domain during wartime. Think of it like the impact of the fall of Atlanta on the Confederates during the Civil War. Louisiana just lost its last solid Democrat voting districts, and any part of the existing Democrat machine that is still standing is about to be tied down in a Gulliverian web of lawsuits and Federal corruption charges which will surely come as a result of the floods.

Of course once the plague of lawyers is finished with Louisiana it will seek other vict... um... fodder to gnaw on.

The Democrat machines in Chicago and Detroit immediately come to mind.

The Democrats and their stooges in the Lamestream Media are making every effort use Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath as a club to strike down President Bush. The reality is that Katrina has struck the death blow to the Democratic Party.

Thought for the Day

The next time some damned fool tries to tell me that I don't need to own a gun I will not attempt to explain why individual gun ownership is a moral and political necessity. I will instead cut to the foundation of their presumption.

Something like this:

You are NOT my fucking god, PISS OFF!

They have no right to exercise godlike control over our lives. If they cannot live with that fact then perhaps we should see to that they don't.

Warning!

William Shatner will co-sing the theme song from the original STAR TREK series.

Here are the lyrics in question.

Beyond the rim of the starlight,
my love is wandring in star flight.
I know he'll find
In star clustered reaches
Love, strange love
A starwoman teaches.

I know his journey ends never.
His Star Trek will go on forever.
But tell him while
He wanders his starry sea,
Remember,
Remember me.

(Bloody good thing they never actually used them...)

Liberals are certain to blame President Bush for this impending disaster.

Illumination

Doctor Thomas Sowell on moral standards and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina:

During good times or bad, the police cannot police everybody. They can at best control a small segment of society. The vast majority of people have to control themselves.

That is where the great moral traditions of a society come in -- those moral traditions that it is so hip to sneer at, so cute to violate, and that our very schools undermine among the young, telling them that they have to evolve their own standards, rather than following what old fuddy duddies like their parents tell them.

Now we see what those do-it-yourself standards amount to in the ugliness and anarchy of New Orleans.

Quote of the Day

From the Marine Corps Times:

This is making a lot of us think about not reenlisting... You have to think about whether it is worth risking your neck for someone who will turn around and shoot at you. We didnÂ’t come here to fight a war. We came here to help.

-- Specialist Cliff Ferguson, 527th Engineer Battalion, United States Army

I don't blame him for raising the question.

When I was in the Army during President Reagan's first term the Marxists were on a rampage in Central and South America and their ultimate sponsors, the Soviet Union, appeared to be unbeatable. And sitting outside the main gate of Fort Benning a mob of self-styled "peace activists" were having a hissy-fit because the United States Army was training members of the Army of El Salvador to hunt down and destroy the gangs of Marxist murderers that infested their homeland.

I could see no valid reason why the mob outside the front gate acted as they did, nor could I see any reason why I as a member of the armed forces of the United States had to protect their worthless carcasses as well as the lives of good and decent people. If anything, I believed that it would have been nice if the mob outside the front gate and others like them could be cast out of Human Civilization and experience Marxism in practice from the victim's point of view.

I have come to my present conclusion that the mob outside the front gate and their comrades throughout the United States and the rest of the world are basically malignant personalities who are not capable of, or willing to, living productively. Therefore, in order to give themselves an illusion of virtue they execute a mental inversion and deem human life as it exists in the real world to be evil and invent and practice ideologies, such as Islam, Environmentalism, and the various brands of Socialism, that allow them strike poses and to feel good about thwarting and ultimately destroying human beings.

In short, the mob outside the front gate and their bretheren are nothing more than vermin. I can only wish that we could treat them as such.

The basic fact is that giving up the defense of our lives, our families, our nation, and our civilization is simply not an option. I would hope that Specialist Ferguson sees that too.
