Stuff you couldn't make up

Her Majesty’s government is not alone in feeling it’s not always helpful to link Islam and the, ah, various unpleasantnesses with suicide bombers and whatnot. Even in his cowboy Crusader heyday, President Bush liked to cool down the crowd with a lot of religion-of-peace stuff. But the British have now decided that kind of mealy-mouthed “respect” is no longer sufficient. So, henceforth, any terrorism perpetrated by persons of an Islamic persuasion will be designated “anti-Islamic activity” Britain’s home secretary, Jacqui Smith, unveiled the new brand name in a speech a few days ago. “There is nothing Islamic about the wish to terrorize, nothing Islamic about plotting murder, pain and grief,” she told her audience. “Indeed, if anything, these actions are anti-Islamic.”

As an earlier Englishman wrote:

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in a rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean different things."

"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master -- that's all."

That Carroll guy had a way with words.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

WASHINGTON (AP) - A large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and could hit the Earth in late February or early March, government officials said Saturday.

Looks like Chicken Little was right.

May I suggest some possible crash sites??

Sunday morning blatherings..

Stallone's latest Rambo movie has opened to bad reviews, but The Big Guy has came to his defense.. The problem is that movie goers are the young and I would guess Limbaugh's demographics are kinda thin at that end... Of course the young don't read movie reviews so the results may be a wash.

In any event I will wait until the DVD is available on Ebay, at which point I will probably bid $7.00 plus $3.00 shipping. Not that I don't like Stallone, mind you, but watching him blow up the evil guys in defense of the "we won't fight" crowd always gets me to thinking.... Why?? All Sly will be doing is killing a few evil guys and in the real world the "we won't fight" guys will try to keep ammo and supplies from getting aboard the ship.... Repeat after me.... There is no cure for stupidity.

Speaking of movie reviews, I haven't read one in years. At one time I would scan one quickly to pick up some info as to what the movie was about. I didn't need any one's blessing to buy a John Wayne ticket. Now my filter is tuned to names. Names that I know are associated with anti-war ravings... That's right. If you insult the country and my intelligence, you won't get my money..............even on Ebay.

Speaking of demographics, it appears that Hussein has won SC with 80% of the black vote. I am sure he will be on TV somewhere this morning warning us all that no one should play the race card.

I still think that Hillary will win the Demo nomination, as does 99% of all the Talk Show meanderings I have picked up. Also notable is the warnings that If You Dont Nominate Who I Want I Will Pick Up My Marbles And Stay Home.

Proving again that it isn't just the "we won't fight" crowd who have a high quotient of stupidity.

Not that they will pay attention, but I would also tell the Right and the Repubs that Bubba is "rope-a-doping" them. The Repubs should remember that Bubba isn't on the ticket, and they should concentrate on Hillary. They should also stop the agonizing over Bill's BJ and perjury. No One Cares. People Lie About Sex To Their Spouses And To Everyone Else.

Question: What do you call a 40 something guy who gets a BJ from a 21 year old sweetie??

Answer: Lucky bastard......

Okay, okay. It's in bad taste. So shoot me..

And have you seen the bumper sticker?

"Monica's ex-boyfriend's wife for President."

The amazing thing to me about the "I won't play" nits, is that even if they don't like John McCain.. even if they don't believe he won't secure the borders as promised in his interview with Shawn Hannity after the NH primary.. Do they think Hillary will??

Enough. Someone has left a door open and I must close it. Global Warming isn't working as well as Algore has promised.
