So-called French Aide

Via Michelle Malkin:
The naval ship's pantry is stocked with wines, baguettes and pate, and its casual dress code is shorts and sandals. There's even an artist - a painter to keep an illustrated record of the trip.

With a panache all its own, France's military is delivering aid to tsunami-battered Indonesia - and showing how a small force can make a difference.

A month after killer waves struck the Indonesian island of Sumatra, the French are part of an international relief operation that includes forces from more than a dozen nations, including Japan, Russia and Switzerland.

The 1,000 or so French sailors and soldiers arrived in Aceh province on the island's northern tip two weeks ago...

A mere thousand out of the entire French military? Compared to a US Carrier Group, it seems kinda stingy...

Also going to Mom's, back Tuesday.

Statement of Policy

In a free country one may eject a obnoxious lout from their own home or place of business.

And unlike Comrade Stalin, I don't have an army of trench-coated goons to send out and murder those I disagree with. There is a VERY DISTINCT difference between the power of the state and the rights of the private citizen. Learn to live with it.

Furthermore, comparing someone to the bloodiest murderer of the 20th Century and calling that person a traitor and an enemy of freedom are gross insults and I am under no moral obligation to tolerate such on my weblog. Anyone who doesn't like that is free to whine about it on their own weblog.

I stand for INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, which is the right of the individual person to control their own life and property, and as such this includes the right to refuse contact with those the individual disagrees with or otherwise finds obnoxious. Tyranny is when such refusals are answered with physical force.

I have said before and will continue to say that those have or who seek to establish tyranny are toxic to human life, and I have absolutely no ethical objections to dealing with them as such.

"Just Memories"

There was once a Saturday Night Live sketch where Eddie Murphy played a reggae performer playing at an American Legion Post whose lyrics included the phrase, "kill the white man." After Murphy's character is taken aside by the white guy in charge of the venue he changes the lyrics to, "kill the white man, but not until he buys all my records."

Dr. Ray has a bit on similar behavior on the part of Karl Marx.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day II

Robert Tracinski on the inauguration protests:

But the leftist protests take on an especially evil significance when they attempt to disrupt the presidential inauguration. Other protests could be interpreted as an attack on a specific party, politician, or policy, not as an attack on the American political system as such. But the inauguration by its nature *must* be a non-partisan event. Its purpose is for members of all political parties and allegiances to affirm the legitimacy of the election result and support the peaceful transition of power.

Remember, the Marxists believe in their own right to violently seize power and to kill those resist.

And we have no need to wonder about the ultimate political allegiances of the left. In foreign policy, they scream about the evils of the American system and consistently defend dictators and terrorists--especially when they are engaged in open warfare against the United States.

If a socialist economic dictatorship is their ideal, and if they regard Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat as the wronged victims of American foreign policy, then the left is right to protest the process of voting and the peaceful transition of power celebrated at today's inauguration--because they are enemies of a free society.

I will go as far to say that they are Enemies of Mankind in General, to be dealt with as wolves are.

Deep Thought

The thing that Karl Marx most deperately sought was freedom from having to work for a living.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

David Horowitz on the Left's response to President Bush's second inaugural address:

The totalitarian Left -- the Left that calls itself progressive and identifies its totalitarian goals with the seductive phrase "social justice" -- hated the speech (naturally), along the man who gave it. "The worst president ever" was one of the milder slogans on a sign in the crowd that gathered along Pennsylvania Avenue to trumpet their hate towards the inaugural parade. But there was hardly a liberal organ in the nation -- from the New York Times to the Washington Post -- that did not find something to wring its hands about in the president's speech. It was a Rorschach moment. This was a self-revelation, a testament to the reactionary force that liberalism has become. The torch of freedom has passed, as President Kennedy said in his own summons to his countrymen to stand up for what is right. But it has passed not to a nation united, as Kennedy fervently wished, but to the conservative vanguard that still takes the Founding spirit of the nation seriously, still rings its Liberty Bell, and is prepared to stay the course of the mission that inspired its birth.

What would Orwell say?

Those who uphold, defend, and spread economic and political liberty are called Conservatives while those who seek to lock humanity down under their total control are called Progressives. In effect, in the political context, the practical meanings of the political labels are reversed.

The one of the functions of language is to serve as the operating system of human thought. But the function of Newspeak is to prevent correct identification of the facts of reality. Thus bloodsoaked tyrants such as Fidel Castro are called liberators and liberators such as President Bush are called oppressors. But since clarity of thought, the correct identification of the facts of reality, is necessary for humans to survive and prosper, a language form that obscures facts and disconnects thought from reality has the effect of being toxic to human life. Each subsequent revision of Newspeak, with its increasing disconnection from reality, is increasingly toxic to human life. An ultimate version of Newspeak, in which any thought is impossible, would be totally lethal.

Thus if we are to survive and prosper as individuals and as a society we must remove the newspeakers from our educational establishments and if necessary isolate them from society altogether.

Art is something that won't be identified as garbage and hauled away.

I Have Been Remiss...

I haven't visited the Communists For Kerry site for a while and thus missed their election night report:

Lenin tells Rosa Luxemburg how he changed costumes so that within one hour he could cast nine votes for John Kerry - as Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin, Bukharin, Dzerzhinsky, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, and twice as Laika the Space Dog!

Hey Rosa, can you purge me too?

The Left In Action

Tim Blair's weblog site has been hacked.

According to Mr. Blair:

Apparently my site has been hacked — all posts and archives removed, etc. Not sure yet if anything can be recovered.

Worse, I’m currently unable to post (password details have been corrupted) so would appreciate if any or all of you could alert readers.

All in favor of making censorship a capital offense please raise your hand...

(Les' hand is raised)

The Doctor Is In

Dr. John Ray has a few words about the self-styled American Progressives of a century ago:

Probably the major thing that holds the American Left from wider adoption of their alternative name however is the legacy of the last major American political movement to use that name -- the "Progressives" of around the beginning of the 20th century. Let me note what an embarrassment THEY are:

Like all Leftists, they were a fractious lot so there is no fixed list of what a Progressive believed but here are some of the notable features in Progressive doctrine: They were (of course) anti-business, pro-welfare and believers in central government management of the economy but as well as that they believed in eugenics, racial superiority, war as a purifying force, nationalism, imperialism, conformity, discipline, book-burning, loyalty oaths and straight-armed salutes. And they despised the Jews, of course.

Does all that somehow ring a bell? Where else have you heard of such a set of ideas? You've got it! All of those ideas were also Hitler's ideas. And THAT'S WHERE HITLER GOT A LOT OF IT FROM. The American Progressives were the first Fascists of the 20th century. In America they were mostly unable to put those ideas into full practice but Hitler showed what happens when you do.

Which in part explains why the present day "Progressives" are so desperate to hang on to control of the public schools. I mean gee, gosh, and wow. What would happen to the Left if the schools actually taught the real history of the last century?

A round in the back of the head in the old Soviet style?

I have never accepted a monetary donation is exchange for a political endorsement on this weblog.

If I did, I would not have to deliver pizza for a living.

Thought for the Day

One gets the impression that the bozoids at CBS, and the mainstream or legacy media in general, believe that the First Amendment is in effect a legalization of actions that in any other field of life would be properly identified as crimes, such as fraud and treason.

Something should be done about this.

Today in Pizzaland

If I were to start this blog today I would have been very tempted to call it "Adventures in Pizzaland."

It was a fairly slow day today, I only made fourteen deliveries in a bit over eight hours. This included a $48.00 run to South High School in Minneapolis where the glorious heroes of socialist indoctrination public education declined to offer a tip. It was the only stiffing I received for the day.

I also saw a neat bumper sticker on the return leg of a delivery run:


I want one, dammit.

INSTAPUNDIT is down, along with all of Hosting Matters, I believe. The HM people say it's a DDOS attack. I'm going to bed now anyway; if the site's still down tomorrow I'll post here, but that's unlikely.

Conservatives and other folks with a reality orientation will take "no" for an answer. Conservatives and civilized people in general prefer to deal with others on the basis of consent.

The Socialists, like any other practitioners of an "overlord" ideology, would rather deal with others through coercion. By fraud if possible, by force if necessary.

Where a conservative will ask for an agreement, the socialist will demand nothing less than total submission.

Where a conservative accepts the moral boundaries to his actions, to a socialist no act, be it cheating, be it censorship, or be it mass-murder, too depraved in the pursuit of power.

Conservatives stand for civilization. Socialists are just another bunch of f***ing savages.

You Too Can Be A Mass Murderer!

All you have to do is follow Marx and Engels:

"The proletarians, driven to despair, will seize the torch which Stephens has preached to them; the vengeance of the people will come down with a wrath of which the rage of 1795 gives no true idea. The war of the poor against the rich will be the bloodiest ever waged".

-- Friedrich Engels

So far it is no less than 110 million lives that have been snuffed out by the followers of Marx and Engels. The Left calls us morons when we refuse the poison that they offer us. And if anyone suggests that the socialists should killed before they have a chance to kill any more of us he is called "the embodiment of all evil on Earth."

Wow! They really hate it when we shoot back.

Dr. John Ray is posting some of the more interesting quotes from the works of Marx and his associates and followers. Check it out here.

And on May 1st we should do something to remember the victims of Marx and Engels.

Meanwhile...Across The Deranged Zone

North Korea Issues Wartime Guidelines For Attack By U.S.

South Korea -- North Korea has ordered its citizens to be ready for a protracted war against the United States, issuing guidelines on evacuating to underground bunkers with weapons, food and portraits of leader Kim Jong Il...When North Koreans evacuate to underground facilities, they should make sure that they take the portraits, plaster busts and bronze statues of Kim and his parents so that they can "protect" them in a special room, the guidelines say.
