Thought for the Day

Anyone who believes that tyrannicide is murder may not be part of the problem of tyranny, but that is certainly the way to bet.

Thought for the Day



Of course the tyrannophiles, otherwise known as the Left, are having a fit over the permanent disposal of Saddam Hussein.

I once wrote this about the relationship between the Left and their beloved tyrants:

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.

And when they see a dictator doing a dance at the end of a rope they see themselves perishing with him.

Do I really need to say more?

No, I really don't think so.
_

Update at 0740 CST:

Apparently I do have something more to say.

The frothing of the Left continues. Their hatred of President Bush the Tyrannicide will intensify because they will see him as an active hazard to their own lives. So we should expect to see them become more explicit in their desire to see President Bush die.

We should watch for the first "Kill Bush" bumper stickers.
_

Update at 0940 CST:

Eon over at LGF had this to say on the subject:

Also, to a great extent, the attitude of these individuals toward the likes of Saddam is that of envy. They see someone they would like to emulate, and whom they believe they are entitled to emulate, as follows;

1. I am a progressive. I am therefore on a higher moral plane than anyone else.

2. (1) proves that I am innately superior to all others. I am therefore the one best suited to rule, and gain the rewards of doing so.

3. (1) and (2) together should be obvious to all others, so they should therefore recognize my inherent specialness and general wonderfulness and obey me as I manage their lives for them- to my benefit, as I am far more important than they are.

4. Anyone who does not acknowledge the truth of (1), (2), and (3) is both stupid and evil, and must be destroyed.

You or I can see that this entire argument is built on a false premise- namely, that those who style themselves as "progressive" are somehow different or inherently better than the rest of the human race. But the ones who claim this label are convinced that it is not merely true, but an immutable law of nature.

Or in other words, they believe in a cult of self-worship.

This probably explains most of the posters on DailyKos, HuffPo, and DU. As well as anyone who ever thought that all answers to any problem could be found in the works of Marx, Engels, or Marcuse. Or Nietsche, for that matter.

Just an observation.

Today in Pizzaland

I had a large pizza order today from a group having a meeting at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul today. The male person that I talked to was unable to tell me which specific building on campus they were in. I asked him several times and all he would tell me was that he was on the campus. To show how stupid he was I must point out that all buildings on the campus have the name of the building on a sign at the building entrance. I strongly suspect that the individual may have been a peace activist. But I didn't ask.

Let's Do this!

The U.S.S. Robert A. Heinlein



What better way to commemorate Robert Heinlein's birth centennial than naming a major new US Navy ship after him? The ultra-sophisticated DDG destroyers (Zumwalt class) are something straight out of science fiction themselves, and there's never been a better ship to name after an sf writer, futurist and proud Navy man.

We'll have more here soon about the USS Heinlein campaign and how to make it happen, but for now, here's the scoop from our event coordinator, Tim Kyger:

The U.S.S. Robert A. Heinlein Campaign

For all but a very brief period at the beginning of our history, the word ship will mean space ship. [1] Many will be named “Robert A. Heinlein.”

Only one will ever be the first.

We have the chance to name that very first one. [2]

This coming July 7, 2007 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Robert A. Heinlein. That day would be a perfect opportunity for the Secretary of the Navy to announce that ship DDG-1001 (or another early hull number) would be named the U.S.S. Robert A. Heinlein.

How do we make it happen? We write the Secretary of the Navy and ask him to! The Secretary of the Navy has the authority to name the ships of the U.S. Navy (he is the only one who can).

Thought for the Day

If history has taught us anything, it is that peace has never been the result of yielding to the will of one's enemies. Peace can only come as the result of totally and unconditionally defeating those who seek to bend you to their will.

In other words, give us Liberty or we will give you Death.

Update at 0900 hrs CST, 29 December, 2009:

Rabbi Eliyahu Shalem of Jerusalem has some more to say on the subject:

As a proposition war should be avoided but not at all costs for it thus serves to appease the evil bent on their own agendas. Even containment can be misused and only aid and abet the evil.
Adam's regime was evil and had to be removed. Ahmedinajad's call to annihilate genocidely the Jewish people is a blatant evil and must be removed before it is too late.
Bush was correct and the American people at the time after 9/11 were again correct. War is justified in these circumstances. Save the moralizing for Sunday morning.

Hang the bastard, hang him high.
Hoist his body to the sky.

Send his sorry soul to hell.
When his neckbone snaps we'll know.
When the (dic-tat-or) won't be killing anymore.

His face will turn red,
Then purple, then blue.
We'll watch from up here
To get a good view.
And when his eyes bug out we'll know,
It's the end of him
And the end of the show!

So hang the bastard, hang him with cheer.
We'll make some hot dogs
And drink a few beers.
And when his tongue rolls out we'll know,
It's the end of the show
And we all can go home!

But not till we hang the bastard, hang him here.
The most exciting thing this town has seen in years.
When his body stops jerking we'll know,
It's the end of him, it's the end of him,
It's the end of him,
And the end of the show.

[Cowbell solo]

So hang the bastard, hang him high.
Kiss his guilty butt goodbye.
It's as nice as a day can be.
Won't you come to the hanging with me?

His veins will pop out all over his head.
We'll tickle his armpits to make sure he's dead.
And when his tongue rolls out we'll know,
It's the end of him and we all can go home!

But not till we
Hang the bastard, hang him high.

Hoist his body to the sky.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

The Left lied, millions died.

The Worst Day of the Year

Contributed by George Mellinger

Monday will be a day for contemplating all that is best, most noble and perfect in our world. But today is the day to contemplate all that is ugly, criminal and thoroughly demonic. It behooves us to remember from time to time all the worst of which we are capable, and today is the most fitting day of all. On December 22, 1879, in the Georgian village of Gori was born Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, better known as Stalin.

I would also say that killing a Marxist is no more a wrongful act than is putting down a rabid dog.

So Anyway

So I stopped over at The People's Cube to see what they're up to today. Apparently it was Volume II, Chapter I of the the autobiography of a certain famous socialist. Which they quoted:

- We demand that the State shall make it its primary duty to provide a livelihood for its citizens.
- The abolition of incomes unearned by work.
- The breaking of the slavery of interest
- Personal enrichment from war must be regarded as a crime against the nation. We demand therefore the ruthless confiscation of all war profits.
- We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been formed into corporations (trusts).
- We demand profit-sharing in large industrial enterprises.
- We demand the extensive development of insurance for old age.
- We demand the passing of a law for the expropriation of land for communal purposes without compensation
- The State must consider a thorough reconstruction of our national system of education. The aim of the school must be to give the pupil, beginning with the first sign of intelligence, a grasp of the nation of the State (through the study of civic affairs).
- The State must ensure that the nation's health standards are raised by protecting mothers and infants, by prohibiting child labor.
- We demand the abolition of the mercenary army and the foundation of a people's army.
- The publishing of papers which are not conducive to the national welfare must be forbidden.
- Our nation can achieve permanent health only from within on the basis of the principle: The common interest before self-interest.
- To put the whole of this program into effect, we demand the creation of a strong central state power


Guess which well known socialist party had all that in its platform?

"We demand the abolition of the mercenary army and the foundation of a people's army." That sounds like something Charles Rangel would agree with given all of his efforts to replace our Volunteer Army with a mob of draftees.

I want to watch the DUmmies, the KOSsacks, and the Huffpuffers pop arteries when they find out who really wrote it. (Tee hee hee.)

In Other News

Here's something that the mainstream media will never publish about Fidel Castro:

According to the Harvard-published "Black Book of Communism," he executed 14,000 subjects by firing squad. These ranged in age from 16 to 68 and included several women, at least one of them pregnant.

According to the scholar/researchers at the Cuba Archive, his regime's total death toll from torture, prison beatings, machine gunning of escapees, drownings of same, etc. comes to 112,000 and counting.

There is a reason I no longer buy newspapers and switch on the network news programs.

Their reporting on political and ethical issues simply cannot be trusted.

There are days that I wish that this branch of our own national fifth column could be held accountable for their ongoing support of slavers and murderers. But would require the creation of the government bureau whose function is to determine what the truth is and to punish those publish contradictions of it. And THAT is a power I don't want to fall into the hands of socialist trash like Comrade Hillary, et al.

A Message...

...to the Iraq Surrender Group, to the Democrats, and to the other willing servants of the Enemies of Mankind:

“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say 'what should be the reward of such sacrifices?' Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”

A Blast From The Past

My feelings toward the Japs could be described as a cold fury. I not only want them to be defeated. I want them to be smashed. I want them to be punished at least a hundredfold, their cities burned, their industries smashed, their fleet destroyed, and finally, their sovereignty taken away from them. We have been forced into a course of imperialism. So let it be. Germany and Japan are not safe to have around; we are bigger and tougher then they are, I sincerely believe. Let’s rule them. We did not want it that way–but if somebody has to be the boss, I want it to be us. Disarm them and don’t turn them loose. We can treat the individual persons decently in an economic sense, but take away their sovereignty.

Someone Asked A Dumb Question

Some piece of Leftist trash is whining:

Is there any way to ban Limbaugh, O'Reilly and their ilk from the airwaves?

This question touches on the first amendment freedom of speech. But what about speech that provides only hatred, propaganda and divisiveness?

The piece of Leftist trash quoted by P.J. Comix is simply being stupid as usual.

As Ayn Rand used to say, a gun is not a substitute for an argument.

Once force is openly used against those who speak out against the Left then the gloves will come off and force WILL be openly used against the Left. Once the Left openly repudiates the rules for living in a civil society then their victims will no longer see themselves as subject to those same rules.

Or to put it another way to the Left, break the rules of civil society and you will have left us no choice but to break you.

It's called a civil war. And cars with bumper stickers, tee-shirts, and other examples of open posturing will make target identification very easy.

What part of "Liberty or Death" do they persist in not understanding?

It is generally considered to be bad form to advocate violence against someone simply because of their political views. But if some Leftist thug finds himself staring at the muzzle of my favorite rifle it is because the stupid individual put himself there.

Meanwhile...Across The Ocean

In the land of the Rising Sun:

TOKYO - Japan has the technological know-how to produce a nuclear weapon but has no immediate plans to do so, the foreign minister said Thursday, several weeks after communist North Korea carried out a nuclear test.

Foreign Minister Taro Aso, who has called for discussion of Japan's non-nuclear policy, also asserted that the pacifist constitution does not forbid possession of the bomb

Imagine for a moment that Hillary Rodham Clinton, someone who could be reasonably expected to be Beijing's bitch, were elected in 2008.

Would it be safe to assume that any democratic nation on the Pacific Rim would remain safe under a nuclear umbrella controlled by an American President whose party is known to have taken money from the masters of Communist China?

No. Of course not.

If Hillary, or any other Donk, wins the White House in 2008 we can be certain that there will very shortly be new members of the Nuclear Club.

Say hello to a nuclear armed Japan.

Say hello to a nuclear armed South Korea.

Say hello to a nuclear armed Taiwan.

Say hello to a nuclear armed Australia.

Who knows, perhaps the folks governing New Zealand may even pull their collective heads out of their collective asses on matters of national defense.

And all this will happen because all of these nations will have no other choice.

Any American citizen who is truly concerned about the proliferation of nuclear weapons can only follow one logical course of action. Vote Republican in 2008.

(Unless McCain gets the nomination. Who really knows what he will do?)

And Now For Something Completely Different

The adventures of Mr. Welch in the theatre!

So after that and brief stint in theatre of the absurd (in which I played a serial killing bird enthuasiast) I got a casting call from the Kingwood Community Theatre, version 3. Oedipus Rex, the tragedy. I get there and start reading lines and the director isn't listening. He's already cast the play with his friends. The casting call was required because the theatre demanded all plays be open calls, no troupes. He didn't care. He was some little rich kid who liked to play with daddy's money. Still, he offered me a job as a hand and being not rich, I took it.

To say this kid was overreaching was an understatement. He gave me and the other hands (seven all together) plans for a grandiose two tiered temple platform with moving parts and room for two dozen strippers. Yes strippers. He hired a bunch of strippers for the chorus. If strippers could act they'd be in porn but he had a thing for the girls at the local joint he attended and hired as many as he could. Mainly they just got in the way or tried to get us to see them. Back to the two tiered temple platform with moving parts though. We get bids from the local hardware and lumber stores on building this thing. A grand easy. The stage manager presented the director with the bill and the director scoffs. Seems he spent most of the money on hiring strippers. I'm probably exaggerating that, but not by much.

To make a long story short, the production failed.

Gosh. What a surprise.

The reason that this little misadventure had piqued my interest is that I've borrowed a bit of Oedipus Rex for my screenplay project. (The following has yet to be formally written into the script and is subject to revision.)


LISA

The Captain seemed to believe that you had become a central character from an ancient Hellenic tragedy. You know, the one where the character kills his father and rapes his mother.

DENNIS

Oh. I would never do that to Mom.


Or something like that...

Yes, Dennis killed his own father. This is going to have an impact on his long lost twin brother when he finds out...heeheehee...

"“I still can'’t act my way out of a wet paper bag...but I'’m really good at getting even with the bad guys."”

Most folks who speak or write adversely about her first film, THE THIRD SOCIETY, are usually worried about her unarmed combat skills. I'm not, that's what bayonets are for. As a former grunt I'm more concerned about her marksmanship medals.


Imperial Navy Lieutenant Commander Dennis Sterling is shot after doing something stupid in THE BOUNDARY.

But, according to her self-written press release, she is going to act in and direct her second film. As someone who is only about a third of the way through writing his first screenplay I can only wish her well in this endeavor.

Something I Found

Some people wonder why I will have nothing to do with the Democratic Party.

From today's New York Sun:

In Cambodia, Phnom Penh fell in mid-April. Saigon fell at the month's end. The frantic efforts to negotiate a peaceful transition went for naught. On May 1, the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal published Peter Kann's famous "Obituary for South Vietnam," which was one of the few pieces extolling the heroism of South Vietnam's often-mocked army. It was "not an army of bumblers and cowards," he wrote. "It was an army that stood and fought with great courage and competence on a few occasions you may remember, like the siege of An Loc. …

"It was an army that for years watched the Americans try to combat the Communists with every wonder of modern weaponry and which then, all too suddenly, was left to face the Communists with American-style tactics but without American-style resources. …" He conceded that the North Vietnamese were stronger. "But the stronger side is not necessarily the better side. ‘Better' becomes a question of values and much as I may respect Communist strength and stamina I cannot accept that the Spartan Communist society of North Vietnam is better than the very imperfect South Veitnamese society that I knew."

It was one of the few eulogies the free Vietnamese ever got. And then a region with a population as large as eastern Europe was thrown into the decades of a still-dark night of communist tyranny. Hundreds of thousands were thrown into re-education camps. Millions died in the killing fields of Cambodia. The outpouring of boat-people from Vietnam astonished the world. In 1979, the summit of industrialized countries meeting at Tokyo was forced to set aside its agenda to deal with the crisis of the millions seeking to escape the communism to which they'd been abandoned

The Democrats have a lot to answer for.

Depravity of the Day.

I'll start with a couple of definitions from the New Devil's Dictionary:

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.

The reason I brought them up is that Leo Pusateri over at Blogs For Bush has brought up a rather unpleasant subject:

Doctors are urging health regulators to consider allowing the "active euthanasia" of severely disabled newborn babies.

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology has put forward the option of permitting mercy killings of the sickest infants to a review of medical ethics.

It says "active euthanasia" should be considered for the overall benefit of families who would otherwise suffer years of emotional and financial suffering.

Deliberate action to end infants' lives may also reduce the number of late abortions, since it would allow women the chance to decide whether their disabled child should live.

"A very disabled child can mean a disabled family. If life-shortening and deliberate interventions to kill infants were available, they might have an impact on obstetric decision-making," the college writes in a submission to the Nuffield Council on Bioethics.

In other words, these so-called doctors are calling for the murder of helpless infants.

It's kind of hard to stand up for the freedom of speech when that freedom is abused in order to call for the murder of the innocent.

We should also note the use of a qualifier as means of nullifying the meaning of a word. Thus the prefix "bio" is used to convert the field of ethics from a set of rules for living the Human mode of life into a set of excuses to destroy Human life.

I have to wonder if these so-called doctors are fully paid-up on their NSDAP dues.

Question



Why do Leftists have such a problem with tyrannicide?

We must take into account the fact that the Left's ideal of society is one where the State controls all aspects of human life and where the refusal to submit to the will of the State is a punishable offense. Punishments which include the penalty of death.

In short, the Left seeks to establish a state of tyranny.

This may explain why they have a problem with those who practice tyrannicide.

Mouth Dropping of the Day

The Bolshevik Broadcasting Collective brings us this bit of moral excrement:

The environmental costs of long-distance trade need to be properly taken into account... We must manage international trade in a way which is socially and environmentally sustainable, working towards global agreement on a raft of measures such as taxation on fuel and import tariffs designed to support home-grown businesses... This will help offset the environmental damage caused by ships like the Emma Maersk plying international waters filled with MP3 players and plastic toys.

-- Dr Caroline Lucas, Green Party MEP for South East England.

What, afraid that one of those container ships will bring in the rope that your ass will be hanged with?

Voluntary commerce is a distinctive part of the human mode of life. To oppose commerce is to oppose human life. And those who are part of the opposition to human life, which is an inherent part of being in a Green Party, are nothing less than enemies of Mankind.

And we have no obligation to debate the enemies of Mankind, our moral obligation is to identify them and destroy them. Totally.
_

Thought for the Day

One thing we have to watch out for in the coming election is the old graveyard vote. While Chicago, Illinois is most noted for its army of dead voters, the state of Massachusetts has the fourth oldest group of dead voters thus possibly explaining the continued presence of such trash as Ted Kennedy and John Kerry in the U.S. Senate.

(Florida's earliest graveyard constituency only speaks Spanish and is therefore ineligible, the Jamestown colony in Virginia never developed into a big city, and North Carolina's first settlement simply disappeared.)

Of course with a written language and civil records being a requirement for the registration of undead voters, we in the United States can only take a distant second place to the Mexican Republic, whose civil societies predates the European presence on this continent by centuries.

The dominance of dead voters, including Aztec Emperors, in Mexico may explain the only recently broken dominance of the PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party) in Mexican elections.

Well, that's my civics lesson for the day.

That is how the Chicago machine overcomes a strong downstate Republican vote almost every election. My parents, who were staunch party Democrats, used to brag about how they helped rig the vote in Chicago doing that.

I remember my dear late Mother being pissed the day somebody pulled some old ballot boxes out of Lake Michigan years ago when a pier was being replaced (which is where a lot of Nixon ballots apparently ended up on election night in 1960) cause she said they should have had sense enough to dump the stuff farther out where it would never be found. Boy were they unhappy when I grew up and became a conservative. I'm sort of the apostate in the family.

Still goes on to this day. Drive by any precinct polling place in Chicago this election and you will see some smarmy looking guy with bad breath and 3 days beard growth standing on the public sidewalk just outside the door. That will be the ward-heeler. He will have a pocket full of voters cards ready to hand out anytime you need one to vote - Democratic of course. He will also be keeping track of who has shown up to vote so far and who has not. You can literally be walking by, a vistor from out of town, and they will shove a voter card into your hand and push you towards the door. But you never hear of this from the Chicago newspapers like the Sun Times and the Tribune.

My question is: CAn we now do away with the polite fiction that the Democratic Party is a legitimate political faction and start treating it like the gang of traitors and thieves that it really is?

Think Of It As Idiocy In Action

Today is World Vegan Day.

It is an occasion when a bunch of basically stupid and useless folks can strut about and pretend to be morally superior to the rest of us. Actually they do it every day but today they get to be really hyper about it.

For example, did you know that humans use much less land and water if they eat crops directly rather than through the intermediary of an animal? This is because farmed animals consume much more protein than they produce: most of the protein from their vegetable feeds is used for the animals'’ bodily functions and not converted to meat, eggs or milk. More water and land is therefore needed to grow crops for farmed animals to eat, leading to deforestation, water scarcity, soil erosion and increased pesticide use.

Let's start with the fact that not all land used for pasture can be converted for grain or veggie production. Let's also note that a large part of what meat animals are fed, such as hay and shredded corn stalks, is waste material from food production for humans. The elimination of meat production would actually require an increase in the use of land for farming in order to make up for the deficit in food production.

In other words, the Vegan propagandists are engaging in mental inversion mode as usual.

And let's face it, a diet without meat is unbalanced. The vegans that I've met tend to resemble socialist labor camp inmates without the labor camp haircut. And they tend to do stupid things like voting for Democrats or neocommunist trash like the Green Party.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Is Fidel Castro Ruz existentially challenged? Who really knows? But now we present...

The Dead Dictator Sketch!


The cast:

MR. RANGEL, A CONGRESSMAN
Charles Rangel, A Well Known Friend Of Fidel

DAN RATHER, A SHOP OWNER
Dan Rather, Another Well Known Friend Of Fidel


The sketch:


A customer enters a pet shop pushing a large leather chair with a dead Fidel Castro in it.

Mr. Rangel: Hello, I wish to register a complaint.

(Mr. Rather does not respond.)

Mr. Rangel: Hello, Miss?

Dan Rather: What do you mean "miss"?

Mr. Rangel: I'm sorry, I have a cold. I wish to make a complaint!

Dan Rather: We're closing for lunch.

Mr. Rangel: Never mind that, sir. I wish to complain about this dictator which I purchased not half an hour ago from this very boutique.

Dan Rather: Oh yes, the, uh, the Norwegian Blue...What's, uh...What's wrong with him?

Mr. Rangel: I'll tell you what's wrong with him, sir. He's dead, that's what's wrong with him!

Dan Rather: No, no, he's uh,...he's resting.

Mr. Rangel: Look, sir, I know a dead dictator when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.

Dan Rather: No, no, he's not dead, he's, he's resting! Remarkable dictator, the Norwegian Blue, isn't, it? Beautiful beard!

Mr. Rangel: He doesn’t look the slightest bit Norwegian. He's stone dead.

Dan Rather: Nononono, no, no! He's resting!

Mr. Rangel: All right then, if he's resting, I'll wake him up! (shouting at the chair) 'Hello, Fidel! I've got a lovely fresh capitalist enterprise for you to confiscate on if you show...

(Dan Rather hits the chair)

Dan Rather: There, he moved!

Mr. Rangel: No, he didn't, that was you hitting the chair!

Dan Rather: I never!!

Mr. Rangel: Yes, you did!

Dan Rather: I never, never did anything...

Mr. Rangel: (yelling and hitting the chair repeatedly) HELLO FIDEL!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!

(Takes Castro out of the chair and thumps his head on the counter. Stands him up and watches him fall to the floor.)

Mr. Rangel: Now that's what I call a dead dictator.

Dan Rather: No, no.....No, he's stunned!

Mr. Rangel: STUNNED?!?

Dan Rather: Yeah! You stunned him, just as he was waking up! Norwegian Blues stun easily, sir.

Mr. Rangel: Um...now look...now look, sir, I've definitely had enough of this. That dictator is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not half an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it being tired and shagged out following a prolonged speech.

Dan Rather: Well, he's...he's, ah...probably pining for the fjords.

Mr. Rangel: PINING for the FJORDS?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did he fall flat on his back the moment I got him home?

Dan Rather: The Norwegian Blue prefers keeping on it's back! Remarkable dictator, isn’t he, sir? Lovely beard!

Mr. Rangel: Look, I took the liberty of examining that dictator when I got him home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting in his chair in the first place was that he had been NAILED there.

(pause)

Dan Rather: Well, of course he was nailed there! If I hadn't nailed him down, he would have stood up and gone VOOM! Feeweeweewee!

Mr. Rangel: "VOOM"?!? Sir, this man wouldn't "voom" if you put four million volts through him! He's fucking demised!

Dan Rather: No, no! He's pining!

Mr. Rangel: He's not pining! He’s passed on! This dictator is no more! He has ceased to be! He’s expired and gone to meet his maker! He’s a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed him to the chair he'd be pushing up the daisies! His metabolic processes are now history! He’s off the twig! He’s kicked the bucket, He’s shuffled off his mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the fucking choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-Dictator!!

(pause)

Dan Rather: Well, I'd better replace him, then. (he takes a quick peek behind the counter) Sorry sir, I've had a look 'round the back of the shop, and uh, we're right out of dictators.

Mr. Rangel: I see. I see, I get the picture.

Dan Rather: I got a slug.

(pause)

Mr. Rangel: Tell me, does it talk?

Dan Rather: Nnnnot really.

Mr. Rangel: WELL IT'S HARDLY A FUCKING REPLACEMENT, IS IT?!!???!!?

Dan Rather: N-no, I guess not. (gets ashamed, looks at his feet)

Mr. Rangel: Well?

Dan Rather: It leaves a trail of blood.

Mr. Rangel: Yeah, all right.

John Bergstrom Doesn't Play Well With Others

John Bergstrom (aka Varmint) had this to say about the Air America Radio Pravda bankruptcy:

I considered telling him about the bankruptcy. But, why crush his dreams? I told him that the company had a bright future. And advised that he should consider taking out a huge home loan based on the income he was sure to get, eventualy.

If I ever meet Varmint I'm going to have to do the "we're not worthy" thing.

A Question

Peggy Noonan asks:

Conservatives these days are asking themselves very many questions, but I wonder if the left could tolerate asking itself even a few. Such as: Why are we producing so many adherents who defy the old liberal virtues of free and open inquiry, free and open speech? Why are we producing so many bullies? And dim dullard ones, at that.

A short answer is, because when you peel away the layers of excuses that pass as an ideology on the Left what remains is the old stone age notion of beating up other people and taking their stuff.

And when is the core value of a political faction is savagery then it should be no surprise that they will ultimately behave like savages.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Meanwhile...Across The Ocean

More victims of the false god Allah:

In an horrific incident of Christian persecution on September 1, some unidentified militants slew two children of a missionary couple who is working with At Any Cost Jesus Mission, a underground ministry evangelizing to the Muslim nations.

A press release sent via e-mail to ANS by Any Cost Jesus Mission said that the assailants torched the dead bodies of teenaged children Shalom, 15 and Sharon 14 after murdering them brutally in the northern district of Pakistan.

The teenaged victims according to the press release were secondary school students.

“Shalom and Sharon were kidnapped along with their missionary parents and two other younger sisters 10 days before the murder. The militants asked them to convert to Islam but they refused,” said the press release.

“So the militants killed Shalom first. Then they raped the girl and cut one of her breasts in front of her parents. She too died”, the press release quoted another underground missionary, Habel who it said broke the news to Any Cost Jesus Mission from a hidden place.

Victims denounced by the left in...

If something like had occurred in the time of the British Rule over this area the animals who did this would have been hunted down and killed. Because that is what a true civilization did to those who chose to act like subhuman animals.

Pakistan is now under the rule of savages.

Blast From The Past

I posted this over at ATTACK CARTOONS in response to a particularly dense lefty:

I wrote this in response to another Leftist asshole a couple of years ago, the asshole refused to get it and apparently launched a DOS attack on my website, I still stand by it:

I’ll start with a parable:

A small town was once attacked by a pack of wolves. Some of the inhabitants - - men, women, and children - - were maimed and killed by the wolves.

The men of the town armed themselves and tracked the wolf pack back to its lair and proceeded to kill every member of the pack. And when the guns fell silent the only sound was a wimper emanating from a hollow beneath a tree stump.

In the hollow was a newborn wolf cub. One of the men, a bald fellow who wore glasses and a old black field jacket, shot the wolf cub with his rifle.

Another man asked the bald guy, “it didn’t harm anyone, why did you kill it?”

“It’s a fucking wolf,” the bald guy replied.


A bit over thirteen years ago a small community in Texas was attacked by two packs of predatory animals.

The first pack was a federal agency whose functions were in part a deliberate and explicit violation of the charter and supreme law under which the Federal Government was established.

Even under regulations in effect at the time, the BATF could have sent a couple of agents in coats and ties in a plain government issue sedan to the Branch Davidian residence and asked the federally licenced firearms dealer living there to open his place of business and records to examination. Or if they needed to place the leader of the congregation under arrest they could have taken him into custody while he was out on his morning run. Given Mr. Koresh’s past history of cooperation with local law enforcement they could have simply asked him to come down to the local sheriff’s station.

The BATF did none of the above.

Instead the BATF attempted to stage a military-style assault, code-named Operation
Showtime, in order to impart a positive impression of the agency upon the socialist filth that had just moved into the White House. Never mind all the innocent women and children who could have been maimed or killed during the raid.

After the BATF goons were driven off another pack of predators, the so-called Hostage Rescue Team of the FBI, descended upon the Branch Davidians.

If it had been necessary to take the Branch Davidian residence by force a trainee platoon from the Benning School for Boys could, in accordance to their training, have entered the building and taken down any armed individuals without deliberately harming the non-combatants. Instead, the HRT, the alleged experts in hostage rescue, proceeded to terrorize the people within the residence. And when the Branch Davidians refused to surrender, they were exterminated by the HRT.

The HRT used some armored vehicles to destroy the exits from the building and to allow the ambient wind to blow through the structure while other armored vehicles injected CS gas, known to be inflammable and toxic to children and elderly persons, into the wooden structure.

And then the HRT fired incendiary devices into the building.

While the Branch Davidian residence burned to the ground on live television, HRT gunmen stationed behind the building out of sight of the TV cameras shot anyone who attempted to escape the fire from the rear of the building.

The Democrat majority in both houses of Congress were not the slightest bit appalled by the atrocity, instead of condemning the president for his actions and initiating the process of impeaching and removing President Clinton, they chose instead to condemn the victims and those who dared to speak up for them.

Given the choice of obeying the supreme law or violating the law, they chose to violate the law.

Given the choice of preserving innocent life or destroying it, they chose to destroy innocent life.

President Clinton and the Democratic Party could have obeyed the Constitution, the Supreme Law to which the President, the Congress, and the Federal Government in general were subject and stopped the terrorization and murder of the Branch Davidians, but instead chose to violate the Supreme Law.

And like a number of illiterate barbarian chieftains before him, President Clinton and his party used the murder of the Branch Davidians to demonstrate to the rest of us what would happen to anyone who refused to submit to their will. Instead of standing up for the rights and lives of Americans they chose instead to terrorize and murder Americans.

Since then the name “democrat” has become in my mind synonymous with the concept
“murderer.” If there is one complaint I have about President Bush it is that he has done nothing to bring the perpetrators of this atrocity to justice.

Nothing. At. All.

If I have a question for the Anonymous poster it is this: What is it like to not have a human soul?

What is it like to just be another fucking predatory animal?

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

The Guru, God rest his soul, brought us this:

"As to the abuses I meet with, I number them among my honors. One cannot behave so as to obtain the esteem of the wise and the good without drawing on oneself at the same time the envy and malice of the foolish and wicked, and the latter is testimony of the former. The best men have always had their share of this treatment, and the more of it in proportion to their different and greater degree of merit. A man, therefore, has some reason to be ashamed of himself when he meets with none of it."

There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender. The future is all around us, waiting, in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain.

I found this over at Little Green Footballs:

A father is walking with his son around the year 2032 in lower Manhattan. As they explore the area the father explains to his son about the grandeur of the buildings and take on the sites. Suddenly they come to a beautiful park and plaza.

The son is so excited at the beautiful park and monuments and asks his Dad: "What are these monuments for?"

The father replies: "This park is dedicated to honour the Twin Towers and the memory of the people of New York."

"What are the Twin Towers?" asks the son.

Dad replies: "They were two very large 110 story buildings which stood here nearly 30 years until Arab Terrorists destroyed them."

"Dad, what is an arab?"

Thanks, Marsl!

The next comment was interesting too:

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, not feeling well and concerned about his mortality, goes to consult a Psychic about the date of his death.

Closing her eyes and silently reaching into the realm of the future she finds the answer: "You will die on a Jewish holiday."

"Which one?'" Mahmoud Ahmadinejad asks nervously.

"It doesn't matter," replied the psychic. "Whenever you die, it'll be a Jewish holiday."

Rant of the Day

Published today in the St. Paul Pioneer Press:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ Three peace activists accused of vandalizing a Minuteman III missile silo site near Garrison have been convicted by a federal jury of destroying government property.

Greg Boertje-Obed, 51, and Michael Walli, 57, both of Duluth, Minn., and Carl Kabat, 72, of St. Louis, admitted during the course of a two-day trial to dressing up as clowns, breaking into the missile silo site June 20, spray-painting messages and splattering blood, and pounding on the lid of the underground silo with hammers.

The jury deliberated only about 1 1/2 hours Thursday before convicting the men.

The three men, members of the Wisconsin-based group Nukewatch, showed little reaction when the verdict was read. They each face up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland ordered the men jailed until their sentencing Dec. 4, after they said they would not cooperate with the rules of a halfway house.

This is not funny nor is it in any other way entertaining.

Had someone attempted to perform the identical act to a Missile Silo of the Strategic Rocket Forces of the Soviet Army back during the Cold War they would have been taken out and shot. One round in the back of the head in the Soviet style.

If only the United States Federal Government were allowed to do the same.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Clare Hochhalter said after the trial that he respected the right of the defendants to express their beliefs, but only "within the bounds of the law." Prosecutors said the men did more than $14,000 worth of damage.

The defendants did not deny the government's allegations. They instead implored the jurors to, as Kabat said in his closing statement, "be the conscience of the community here, the state and the country." Some supporters of the defendants held banners outside the courthouse.

"Our action was for the sake of children's futures," Boertje-Obed said.

Kabat said the men dressed in clown suits during the incident because they were being "fools for God and humanity."

It would be far more accurate to label them as raving lunatics who willfully serve the enemies of God and Humanity.

They attempted to deprive us of the means to strike at those nation-states that are depraved enough to strike at us, and to subjugate and murder us.

The fact of the matter is that the self-described "Peace Activist" does not act out of conscience but out of a fraudulent desire to pose as a morally superior being without any regard for the millions of innocents that they condemn to death and servitude. A "Peace Activist" is a willing accessory to the acts of mass slavery and mass murders committed by the various adherents of toxic ideologies such as Socialism and Islam. And killing a "Peace Activist" is not an act of murder, it is in effect the putting down of a diseased animal which is a demonstrated hazard to innocent Human Life.

Being raped in prison and contracting HIV as a result may serve as a reasonable substitute for a proper death sentence.

Our patria is the longest-lasting political institution of its kind ever attempted by mankind; your patria has failed miserably in every place ever attempted.

Just A Reminder


From Cox and Forkum.

And here is another thousand words on the subject:



There are those who in their irrational hatred of civilization or an irrational hatred of President Bush have denied the fact that the terrorist acts of September 11, 2001 were commited by the adherents of a fundamentally evil death cult and have instead put forth the utterly bogus claim that the Bush Administration had performed the deed. Those persons who have done so are now willing servants of the Enemies of Mankind, and like those they serve should also be dealt with as wolves are.

Rant of the Day

Mark Urbin has linked to a story about an anti-gun group that goes about claiming that the act of self-defense is really the act of murder.

"It's Not a Movie. It's the Law," says the Web site. "The NRA is working to pass a law that makes murder legal in the United States. It's been called the 'Shoot First,' 'Make My Day,' or 'Deadly Force' law, but call it what you want, it's a License to Murder. ... One killer has already been set free, and other criminals and their lawyers are already drooling at the thought of using the NRA's 'Shoot First' law as a legal defense."

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, these are lies. Shooting in self-defense is not "murder."

And war is not peace, freedom is not slavery, ignorance is not strength, and consensual sex is not rape.

But to accept reality as being real would not allow some folks to pretend that they are some manner of superior person. Especially when they are doing something that is totally depraved.

I think some folks feel a need to achieve, but since they are not the creative or productive kind of person they must then resort to destruction in the place of positive achievement. Thus the need to denigrate their victims, those persons, groups, or nations who are actually good.

For the advocates of "gun control" it means calling someone who shoots in self-defense a murderer. For Mullahs, Marxists, and National Socialists it means the total dehumanization of the victims prior to murdering them.

And then there are the idiots who believe in the Plastic Turkey of Baghdad...

So Anyway

Speaking of depraved trash, I hit Blogs For Bush immediately after coming home from work and saw the link to this:

The right-wingers who think nothing but the worst of Cindy Sheehan probably won't change their minds after reading Peace Mom. In the book, which hits bookstores September 19, the antiwar icon admits she has fantasized about going back in time and killing the infant George W. Bush, thereby preventing the Iraq War.


And Powerline has linkage to this:

Capital punishment? I think that if, if I've got to find that guy in Spain who indicted Pinochet and get him for war crimes, and I get him to do the same thing for Bush. And in that case, I would be for capital punishment.

What we have here is the demand that an elected public official is to be murdered for performing his duty to the best of his ability.

Is it any wonder now that every time I see a BDS bumper sticker the word "murderer" pops into my head?

But why should I stop there?

The purpose of government in a civilized nation, for which the above-linked trash have condemned President Bush to death, is to protect the Life, Liberty, and Property of the citizens and legal resident of that nation. Which in the case of the United States of America would include myself. So the above-mentioned depraved mouth droppings are not only an incitement to murder President Bush, they are a denial of the Rights of Life, Liberty, and Property of all citizens and legal residents of the United States, including myself. They a voice of approval to the enslavement and murder of all citizens of the United States, including myself.

The unavoidable fact of reality is that the self-styled "peace activist" is not a morally superior being, he or she is a willing accomplice to conquest, slavery, and mass murder. They are an active hazard to human life. Or in an ancient tongue: hostis humani generis, an enemy of mankind in general.

In my view killing a so-called peace activist is not an act of murder. It is a morally necessary homicide carried out in defense of self, of one's family, of one's nation, and of Humanity in General.

Today in Pizzaland

Often I will bitch and moan about some idiot riding his or her bicycle in the street instead of on the off-street bike path provided by the City of Minneapolis. But today as I was stopped in the southbound lane of Minnehaha Avenue some idiot in a Saturn with a Howard Dean sticker on their car passed to the right of me in the on-street bicycle lane.

My lack of God, what a fucking idiot.

Rant of the Day

Les will now repeat himself.

To the Superior Beings, the adherents of predator ideologies such as Islam, Marxism, and National Socialism, and to the common criminal, ordinary people are either tools to be used by the Superior Beings, or the ordinary person is trash to be disposed of.

To the Superior Beings, justice consists of getting away with it. And injustice is being held accountable for their crimes against ordinary people or against humanity as a whole.

To the Superior Beings, good is total submission to its will. And evil is the slightest sign of disobedience or outright rebellion. Absolute evil is active deadly force resistance to the will of the Superior Being.

I believe that it is not possible to negotiate with Superior Beings and that violence is only morally effective way to deal with the Superior Beings.

I also believe that those who condemn the use of force in the suppression or destruction of these predators have chosen to become part of the problem and that they should be included in the solution.

As you can see I have absolutely no use whatsoever for the Superior Beings.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Mark Noonan over at Blogs For Bush wrote:

It has long been said that power corrupts - I disagree: it is the lust for power which corrupts. A good and honorable man in a position of power will remain a good and honorable man...but a person who's whole being is consumed with a desire for power will stop at nothing to gain power - and such people are invariably dishonest, cowardly and cruel...in short, such people are John Kerry, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

Just A Reminder

Anti-Strib reminds us that today is the second anniversary of the Beslan Massacre.

Here is another reminder.

But then what should one expect of the followers of a dark-age pedophile-rapist, robber, and murderer?

If something like this were to occur in the United States we should expect the gloves to come off with regard to Muslims and their Liberal enablers.

So Anyway

Still here.

It may be that the Iranian threat to start the apocalypse may have been the usual emission of hot air that we should have expected from the totalitarian filth presently running the former Imperium Persia into the cesspit.

Or the bomb may not have detonated.

I can understand if they can't master the technique of constructing a functional plutonium device. But if reports were accurate they were supposed to be building an enriched uranium bomb.

How could they screw that up? It's a simple device, two subcritical masses brought together with an explosive charge. Is that too complicated for them?

And the 22nd of August would have been a perfect day to set one off too.

A terrorist nuke could have been stashed in a vehicle parked in the lot of the convenience store at the corner of 34th Avenue and 58th Street in South Minneapolis. From this spot the device would have taken out the Air Force Reserve base where Air Force One was parked, killing President Bush. The fallout from this device would have contaminated the Mississippi River downstream of Minneapolis. Any city downstream that used the river as their source of drinking water would be in serious trouble. It is also likely that any barges and towboats that were already in the contaminated water of the Mississippi would not be allowed in the uncontaminated tributaries such as the Ohio and Missouri rivers.

The device would have also flattened the delivery area of the Pizza Hut where I work which would very likely kill me in the process.

Of course if I survived the attack through the performance of a delivery up near Lake Street I would be out of a job.

And I would not be happy about that.

So Anyway

Some bloody asshole wrote:

Well, President Bush will be here on Tuesday to raise money for homophobes,

I simply cannot see why President Bush would want to raise money for folks with an irrational fear of human beings.

What?

Oh yes, the bloody asshole really meant that the President (one who was actually elected, not Comrade Bore) is doing a fundraiser for a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives. Which is to say someone who can reasonably expected to represent citizens who find a certain kind of sexual deviancy to be disgusting and contemptible.

Let's face it, even without the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases the practice of anal sodomy is filthy and damaging to the body, and thus not rational.

In practical terms, those who practice anal sodomy are fucking stupid.

Of course those who engage in the kind of mental inversion that treats the practice of sodomy not as an exercise in applied idiocy, but as a positive virtue will generally tend to do other stupid things, such as vote for Democrats.

In reality the practicing homosexual is not an affirmatively special person, he is in practice a fucking idiot, and it is not the least bit surprising that rational parents will make the effort to shield their children from them.

On a positive note, I have found that presidential visits to the Twin Cities area usually bring about an increase in delivery orders for pizza. So I expect to have a good day tomorrow. (Assuming of course the the fucking Iranians don't set off a crude fission bomb near the airport in an attempt to assassinate the president.)

Um... Right...

Osama Bin Laden is into crackheads, specifically Whitney Houston:

Boof says bin Laden couldn't stop talking about his favorite singer and had lofty plans for her. "He said he wanted to give [her] a mansion that he owned in a suburb of Khartoum. He explained to me that to possess Whitney, he would be willing to break his color rule and make her one of his wives."

I suppose it beats being anally raped by demons in Hell.

For Osama that is.

Quote of the Day

Zombie at Zombietime (via LGF) has about a thousand words on the mental and intellectual state of the Left:



Ladies and Gentlemen, this is what a lifetime of Marxist indoctrination can do to you!

Let's blank out the distinction between the SS and the IDF.

Let's blank out the distinction between aggression and defense.

Let's blank out the distinction between murderers and protectors.

Let's blank out the distinction between reality and paranoid fantasy.

Let's blank out the distinction between Good and Evil.

Better yet, let us not do that.

What can I say about the Barking Moonbat depicted above?

My lack of God, what a fucking idiot. This bozoid is a hazard to himself and Human Life in General.

Reality is real, regardless of what anyone chooses to feel about it. Those who stand up in support of nihilistic mass murdering psychopath gangs such as Hezbollah or the National Socialist German Workers Party are accessories after the fact to their crimes and should be dealt with as such.
