Rant of the Day

From the Associated Press:

A Texas grand jury on Wednesday charged Rep.
Tom DeLay and two political associates with conspiracy in a campaign finance scheme, forcing the House majority leader to temporarily relinquish his post.

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.

Let the Democrats cheat, and be caught.

Update at 1515 hrs

Apparently this indictment is the action of a rogue dictrict attorney in Texas.

We had one of those up here in Minnesota too if I recall.

Another bad habit of Democrats.

Update at 2250 hrs


"For three years and through numerous grand juries, Ronnie Earle has tried to manufacture charges against Republicans involved in winning those elections using arcane statutes never before utilized in a case in the state.

"This indictment is nothing more than prosecutorial retribution by a partisan Democrat."

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.

Quote of the Day

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.

Quote of the Day

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?


Today is talk like a pirate day.

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!)


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.


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 me.

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

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

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.
