Are We Not Sith?

Emperor Darth Misha I has his own theory as to who the real good guys and evil bastards are in the Star Wars series.

We Are Sith, Part I

We Are Sith, Part II

Perhaps we should be...


Three-Year Old News


Arabian Sea (SatireWire.com) — Canadian television reported Friday that a Canadian warship in the Arabian Sea had seized a tanker suspected of smuggling oil from Iraq, leading many to suspect that the report was a hoax.

"You're kidding, right? Canada has a warship?" asked U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. "Like for war?

"Does Canada know?" he added.

Seriously, can they even afford to have a warship with all their welfare spending?

According to Canadian defense officials, the Vancouver is one of four frigates deployed in the region to assist in the U.S.-led Afghanistan conflict. The tanker was stopped, officials said, because its cargo of crude oil violated United Nations sanctions, which prohibit Iraq from selling oil unless in exchange for food and medicine.

The U.N. said the incident is already under investigation, and promised swift action against those found responsible for giving the Canadians guns. Initial findings indicate that the Vancouver crew may have been watching too many American television shows.

Too bad they aren't updating the SatireWire site anymore.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Orson Scott Card takes a look at Revenge of the Sith:

He wanted to make his epic dream come to life on the screen, in all its majesty and power -- and humor, and love, and heroism, and sacrifice ...

He labored over the special effects to make it all seem real, and he succeeded. The dream of his childhood was there on the screen.

Too bad his inner child never learned how to write.

Granted, I can't say that I'm always happy with what I write.

Of course a good tale should carry some truths with it:

That people rarely embrace evil for its own sake, but rather because they think they can accomplish something good.

That once you cross certain moral lines, it becomes almost trivial to cross others.

Of course, I cannot for the life of me figure out what possible good could be accomplished with an ideology that so obviously reduces productive human beings to the status of sub-sentient cattle at the very outset.

Perhaps we should consider ourselves fortunate that most modern liberals in America are happy with only empty posturing instead of actual results.

Oh, By The Way...

The Sith gets results!

Monday Night Confession

I once actually paid money to see a Jane Fonda movie.

The movie was BARBARELLA. It was playing at the Uptown theatre, which at the time was a revival house*. I believed at the time that because it predated the trip to Hanoi that it would be ethically okay for me to see it.

What can I say? BARBARELLA sucked.

By some accounts, Jane Fonda movies still suck.

I'll just have to take their word for it.

* A practice that basically died as a result of the mass distribution of VCR's. Dammit! Some movies, such as 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, can only be truly appreciated when shown on the big theatre screen.

Quotes of the Day

Joel at Little Green Footballs puts something into perspective:

For all their talk about Abu Ghraib, it is obvious to me that the MSM knows very little history. Let's for example say for arguemnts sake that everything they allege to have happened at Abu Ghraib is true (I for one think that the Abu Ghraib story is exaggerated. Does that mean that the US mission is a bad one? In World War II, 96 American servicemen were executed, one was Eddie Slovik for desertion, and 95 were for the felonies of murder (firing squad) or rape (hanging). That some American soldiers committed rape and murder mean that we were on par with the S.S. and Gestapo and therefore that the American mission (Eisenhower referred to it as a "Crusade in Europe" in his book)was morally negated? Of course not!

As long as the MP's at Abu Ghraib don't start playing the auditory works of Yoko Ono we should be okay.

And then on the same thread Goat Guy lays out the differences between how Muslims deal with the Koran and how Christians see the Bible:

This is one of so many "things" that I have come to appreciate about modern Christianity. It does not venerate a book. But it does The Word. Strictly, it doesn't venerate a building, but the Temple in the Heart. It doesn't propose a spreadsheet of cans, can'ts, of do-this-and-it-negates-that crap. It demands only that one take responsibility for their actions, that they think of others, that they try as hard as possible to retire the primitive notions of 'honor', and 'vindication', of collective judgement and retribution. Nothing - nothing! - is authorized as action the believer must take to countenance the besmirched honor of the God of the Word. Nothing.

And that is something that separates us from the Muslims - in the biggest way. We simply put do not have (either Judaisim or Christianity) a sense of object-honor. Its all philosophy. And it is brilliantly non-judgemental, so long as the follower of the faith tries to improve.

Basically, I think of the Koran as merely the written record of the rantings and ravings of an illiterate paedophile-rapist, robber, and murderer.

But what do I know? I only read history as it actually happened.

So Anyway

I saw Revenge of the Sith.

What can I say, Anakin Skywalker is a shmuck.

Of course there are some who wish to see this film as an indictment of the present government. Particularily with this quote:

This is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause.

-- Senator Padme Amidala

Of course, apart from a National Socialist rally at Nuremburg, you can't beat a Soviet Communist Party congress for thunderous applause. Especially back in Comrade Stalin's day.

There will of course be thunderous applause when Comrade Hillary receives the nomination at the next Democratic National Convention. And I don't doubt that there will be thunderous applause should Comrade Hillary actually be elected.

And I simply can't imagine there not being thunderous applause when the long knives finally come out and the opponents of socialism, such as Mark and myself, are lined up along a ditch and shot.

But what do I know? I only read history as it actually happened.

Hardly surprising...

The left gets it backwards. Law Professor Ann Althouse points out that Constitutional framers considered requiring a supermajority vote in the Senate to reject the President's judicial nominees.

A Plan...

I've read a number of positive reviews of SW3: Revenge of the Sith, and the local weather channel is predicting a sunny day tomorrow. I the pizza business good weather means sucky business, which means I should get off work early tomorrow. I will probably see Episode Three at the Mall of America 14 tommorow night.

Quote of the Day

Walid Phares in Frontpage Magazine on the NEWSPEAK NEWSWEEK riots:

One element lost in all the coverage of the jihadist-inspired riots is the rioters' utter hypocrisy. Their concerns for the Muslim holy book did not manifest when they burned mosques to the ground in Pakistan over the past few months. Nor did they launch demonstrations after they destroyed mosques in Iraq throughout the year. There were certainly hundreds of Korans burned into ashes. (It didn't hurt that the owners of these mosques were Shi'ites.) A couple of decades earlier, Hafez Assad's brutal brigades leveled off the mosques of the city of Hama. Thousands of Korans were destroyed (along with 20,000 Sunnis). Yet, the Arab and Islamic world didn't raise a ruckus. The selective outrage over the destroyed Korans is not theological but political. It is only when the Islamists want to wage a jihad for their holy book that infractions begin to make any difference to them. When Arab militias raids black Muslim villages in Darfur, and destroy them, along with their holy books, that is acceptable, but one sentence in an article published in a U.S. magazine deserves a whole holy war? Who are we kidding here?

Another Quote

From Frontpage Magazine:

Che excelled in one thing: mass murder of defenseless men. He was a Stalinist to the core, a plodding bureaucrat and a calm, cold-blooded – but again, never in actual battle – killer.

-- Humberto Fontova, Author of Fidel: Hollywood's Favorite Tyrant.


Quotes of the Day

From Frontpage Magazine:

"To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary."

"These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate."

There Are Things I Would Never Do To A Bird


HT: Princess Kimberley

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Thought for the Day

I posted the following as a comment to something Mark posted on his blog:

The Left believes that socialist dictatorship is the only true (or perfect) form of government. What "Chimpy McBushitler" is doing is replacing proper states where the collective will is embodied in the person of the dictator with self-governing republics where the executive, legislative, and judicial powers are separated and holders of public office are, at least in theory, accountable to the citizen body.

What's worse in the minds (and we're assuming that they have minds here) of the Left is that the socialist systems of economic command based on compulsion where the leftist self-styled intelligentsia gets a free ride is being replaced by a market economy based on consent and contract where even intellectuals are expected to do or at least write something useful.

As to the charge of empire-building, Bush is operating with a voluntary coalition of free states. But in the "superior" intellectual methodology of the Left opposites are identical, thus War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Coalitions are Empires, and the reality that we see is unreal.

Don't Sing In The Office...

We again return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Blasts From The Past

In honor of the last [expletive] Star Wars film I bring forth a link to a comment I made about the Hollywood process: The Audience Is Paying Attention.

To make a long rant short (too late) I think that any Second Hand mentality who mindlessly copies the elements that others have used in their films really deserves to receive a financial kick in the face.

Not that the dumb bastards would learn from it.

Oh, I also had something to say about Hollywood cosmetology:

Seriously people, even Tammy Faye Bakker has not had her lips inflated. That should tell us something.

Quote of the Day

It is better to kill one hundred innocents than to let one guilty person go.

-- Dolores Ibarruri ("La Pasionaria"), Spanish Communist

We on the Right tolerate the long and drawn out appeals process for death penalty cases, as frustrating as it is, because in we want to be certain that we will not put an innocent person to death. The Left, when it is in absolute power, simply doesn't care.

We on the Right believe in justice. The Left on the other hand, doesn't care how high the pile of human corpses is as long as they are firmly seated on top.

Thursday, May 12, 2005

Thought for the Day

It is simply not possible for us to peacefully co-exist with someone, be it a socialist or a theocrat, who claims the status of mastership over us. Such beings have surrendered any and all moral claim to the status of Human Being and can only dealt with by violent force. To be physically isolated, driven off, or simply exterminated.

Quote of the Day

"Since I came from a country [the USSR] guilty of the worst tyranny on earth, I am particularly able to appreciate the meaning, the greatness and the supreme value of that which you are defending. So, in my own name and in the name of many people who think as I do, I want to say, to all the men of West Point, past, present and future: Thank you." -- Ayn Rand, Speech At West Point, 1974

My Horoscope

From The Onion of May 11, 2005:

Sagittarius: (Nov. 22—Dec. 21)

You believed being stranded on that desert island put an end to your run of lousy luck, but the natives will soon become strangely inspired and fashion a crude bus to hit you with.


Two Items

During today's sleep period (I crashed at about 0230 and had the alarm set for 0930) I had a weird-assed dream. Someone had published in my name a play titled "Waiting For Kafka." I could not find an actual copy of the play, which was only performed by shitty little leftist theatre groups.

I was reading Mark's own blog (And if you're not reading it, why not?) when a thought popped into my head.

The Democratic Party's nomenklatura, being essentially a bunch of parasites, feel that they are entitled to rule over us. How else does one explain the utter contempt of the nomenklatura for "the democratic process", and their ongoing desire to disarm us. They feel threatened by the expression of the common citizen's rejection of the will of the nomenklatura and the presence of the citizen body's mean's of enforcing that rejection.

To a parasite, rejection is death.

Quote of the Day

Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped, and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

Tuesday, May 03, 2005

Quote of the Day

Gary North on Karl Marx:

"Karl Marx was the foremost hater and most incessant whiner in the history of Western Civilization. He was a spoiled, overeducated brat who never grew up; he just grew more shrill as he grew older. His lifelong hatred and whining have led to the deaths (so far) of perhaps a hundred million people, depending on how many people perished under Mao’s tyranny. We will probably never know."

Here's an idea: Given that socialism is toxic to human life, let's start treating the public advocacy of socialism as a form of the incitement to commit murder.

For all practical purposes, Marxism in practice is murder en masse.

Hat tip to Dr. Ray.

Quote of the Day

"Whether you like it or not, gun rights are civil rights. If you are against gun rights, then you are in the same pack as the Klan and the communists, and are as likely to vote to shut down churches and newspapers as you are to license and register guns." -- Guy Smith
