Ten “Suspected Gunmen” Paralyze City Of 19Million

30 11 2008


It seems there might have been only 10 terrorists in the most recent Mumbai attacks. If true, it’s not only lucky, as thousands could have died from a larger assault, but it’s a serious embarrassment for the Indian military.  This report suggests policemen within shooting range, neglected to fire at the terrorists during the rampage.  I have a feeling legally armed citizens in Texas could have settled a similar threat faster than the 3 days it took India.  Just don’t go expecting any corporate media outlets to start pushing “conceal to carry” laws.

This story should remind everyone about the damage a small unit of terrorists can inflict on open societies where neighborly trust and commerce prevail.  I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that liberals continue to misdiagnose the problem.  Half the time, they argue that Al-Qaeda is disorganized and that the threat is overblown.  The other half, when at least admitting a problem, think it’s a police matter and not a military one.

To those who hold either mindset, you need to understand that just because Al-Qaeda means, “the base,” doesn’t mean they have 8:00am conference calls with every one of the tens of millions of radicalized Muslims on the planet.  You are correct though.  There is indeed something that binds Al Qaeda with these people.  A way for them to all be united and informed.  A tacit understanding that motivates and guides them.  A manual for life and a handbook with all the answers.  Figure it out. Besides, you don’t agree with profiling or wiretaps anyways, and this is an international issue being financed in Saudi Arabia and Iran.  So beyond good old “blue” diligently supporting Uncle Sam, the only local involvement we suggest is a capable Americanization plan for new immigrants.

By the way, the headline was a derived from a real quote made by an international wire service with a diseased, leftist agenda.

Melanie Phillips lays it out in her, “Reverting to type” piece.  And as usual, Mark Steyn drives it home as well in his, “Just another front.”


Now Suburban Kids Can Sip On Sizzurp Too

29 11 2008

“Sippin’ on sizzurp,” or drinking cough syrup mixed with alcohol, has become so popular with millions of Obama newly registered voters, that a new company has invented an “anti-energy” drink, called “Drank,” in it’s honor.

Supposedly a safe alternative to opiate filled cough syrups, the anti-Red Bull, is drawing some backlash in the hip hip community.  Marcus Lakee Edwards, who performs as Lil’ Keke and is a member of the Screwed Up Click said, “these drinks are adding more fuel to the fire, especially after the Big Moe, Pimp C thing happened. This is like a mockery for us.”

Big Moe and Pimp C recently chilled out a little too much and accidentally killed themselves while sippin on some sizzurp.

Now That We’re All United, Can We At Least Concede This Much?

29 11 2008

President Bush’s administrations had some “serious acheivements.” Here’s another piece, this time from a conservative (who hated Palin and almost endorsed Obama) with a similar theme. And, Victor Davis Hanson solidifies the theme.

Somehow we doubt the current and overwhelming, “united” spirit will endure those conciliatory and respectful articles about President Bush.

*We’d personally add Bush’s stance towards Embryonic Stem Cells as a victory.  While we’re personally unsure on the topic, his ban forced huge donations of private funds and helped reveal enormous successes in non-embryonic methods that would have otherwise been overlooked.

Vidiots Be Warned! They’re Coming For Our Video Games.

28 11 2008

We warned you about the emerging black market for fast food and video games.

A letter warning parents to not purchase video games for their children because of the environment, has been published by the Scientific American.

It won’t be long until there’s actually a movement around this.  I’m considering responding with my own movement.

Meanwhile, the groups behind the warning letters neglected to mention to these liberal parents that nickel batteries that power Hybrid vehicles, morph the land around the factories into NASA “dead zones” for moon rover testing. Literally.

Actions And Words

28 11 2008

Muslims in Florida are running ads imploring Americans to, “learn about Islam.”

We think these folks, who don’t know anything about America, should travel the world teaching fellow Muslims about Islam.  I’m sick to death of Muslims telling others that they need to learn about Islam while their Muslim brothers scream verses of the Quran as they blow up innocent lives.

I know travel agencies are passe’, but we suggest a worldwide trip from NYC, to DC, to Spain, to London, to Bosnia.  To Beslan and Chechnya, to Darfur and throughout Africa.  To Israel, to Iraq, to Iran, to Afghanistan, India and Australia.  By our quick count, all of these areas, no matter their religion or ethnicity, have a common instigator of violence.  If our State Department, CIA, and FBI won’t say it.  If the UN threatens a global blasphemy law to suppress it.  Then how can it be defeated?

By learning about Islam?

On Thanksgiving, Tradition Says We Should Thank…Science?

27 11 2008


Obviously not…But, liberals don’t like talking about G-D because it makes their diseased obsession with moral equivalence, really hard to maintain as a worldview.  Here’s some Founding Father’s talking about Thanksgiving and G-D.

Virginia Governor Thomas Jefferson, in 1779:
[I] appoint … a day of public Thanksgiving to Almighty God … to [ask] Him that He would … pour out His Holy Spirit on all ministers of the Gospel; that He would … spread the light of Christian knowledge through the remotest corners of the earth … and that He would establish these United States upon the basis of religion and virtue.

President George Washington’s first federal Thanksgiving proclamation in 1789:
Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.… Now, therefore, I do appoint Thursday, the 26th day of November 1789 … that we may all unite to render unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection.

President Abraham Lincoln, making Thanksgiving an annual national holiday in 1863, in the midst of the Civil War:
No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.
It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people.

Not a founding father, but William Jennings Bryan,On Thanksgiving Day we acknowledge our dependence.”

“Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will.”
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Nov. 9, 1940

“As the harvest season draws to a close and our storehouses bulge with the bounty of the land, it is our desire to observe, in the custom and tradition of our forebears, a special day dedicated to giving thanks to God – a day on which to lay aside our daily tasks and cares and pay joyous homage to Him.”
President John F. Kennedy, Nov. 13, 1964

I Didn’t Get My Bacon Turducken

27 11 2008

But there’s so many things I’m thankful for.  Almost all of them can be traced back to America.  I shudder to think where things would be without her.

Here’s an important piece from Michael Medved about the widely accepted lies about America. Anyone wanna go out on a limb and guess who promulgated untruths about their own country?

Link and amazing construction of the turbaconducken.
