Just found

although supposedly these bones are the remains of ancient man, they are really the remains of "erectus no oilforus" a sub species of "Enviromentalus Wackous" aka Democratic Politicians.

My thanks to Mike L for the image.

Honor Killings

I didn't see this on TV. I also didn't read it in the NYT, LAT, Chicago Trib or any of the large, or small, regional papers in the US. I picked it up from William Katz's Urgent Agenda and followed it over to the British "Guardian."

I didn't see any protests from NOW, and I haven't seen a press release from CAIR condemning the act. No Senator has thundered from the floor of the Senate. Nancy Pelosi, so proud to be the first female Speaker of the House can't decry such brutal acts. No Ivy League college's President has demanded justice and Hussein, Hillary and McCain are as silent as the grave that

(she was)then tossed into..... without ceremony as her uncles spat on it in disgust.

We have Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, but no Mothers Against Damanable Dads. There must be a thousand groups condemning smoking, saturated fats and demanding ethical treatment of animals.

Yet we have no one speaking out against Honor Killings.

We have routine and casual condemnation of Bush for his evil ways, but no Gollywood Swellhead can manage to cry out against Honor Killings.

Instead we are cautioned to not judge. To understand other cultures. To celebrate the differences, to enjoy diversity.

But some things are just wrong. Killing six million Jews was wrong. Planning and killing others in the name of religion is wrong. Fathers killing daughters because they have spoken to a man is wrong. Keeping females from being educated is wrong.

Yet our media is silent and our politicians are hypocritical. And in the meantime, no one mentions this interview with Osama Bin Ladin by Peter Arnett, then of CNN in March 1997.

REPORTER: Mr. Bin Ladin, will the end of the United States' presence in Saudi Arabia, their withdrawal, will that end your call for jihad against the United States and against the US ?

BIN LADIN:.... So, the driving-away jihad against the US does not stop with its withdrawal from the Arabian peninsula, but rather it must desist from aggressive intervention against Muslims in the whole world.

Read the above and remember the young girl rotting in a grave filled by her corpse, killed by her father. Read and understand what is meant when bin Ladin says:

it must desist from aggressive intervention against Muslims in the whole world.

Note that the date was over eleven years ago. Read your newspapers carefully and see the demands for Shari law and special treatment of Muslim students and employees.

Senator Alexander just doesn't get it

Over in the eastern part of Tennessee, Oak Ridge to be exact, Republican Senator Lamar Alexander stepped up yesterday and delivered his plan to fix our energy problems.

n Make plug-in hybrid vehicles commonplace, enabling consumers to plug their cars in overnight to take advantage of cheap electric rates when power capacity is under-utilized.

n Make carbon capture and storage a reality for coal-burning power plants.

n Make solar more cost-competitive with the burning of fossil fuels.

n Develop ways to safely process and store nuclear waste.

n Make advanced biofuels cost-competitive with gasoline.

n Make new buildings green buildings, with technologies that conserve power and reduce waste products.

n Accelerate the development of nuclear fusion as an energy source for the future.

Now all of those are wonderful ideas. And all of those have been around for years and years. And all of those could just as easy been spewed by Demo Pelosi or the President of your local Wacko Environmentalist Club.

Because none of them do a damn thing towards lowering the current price of gasoline.

To do that we need to start immediately drilling for new crude in the US and off shore while we work on all the high tech solutions which may, or may not, actually work.

That Alexander didn't bring that up just proves that he doesn't have a grip on reality and deserves to lose the election this fall.

It is time, dear hearts, for us to just vote against any politician who has not and does not declare they are for drilling NOW. If neither candidate has declared, ask for a write in ballot and vote for yourself, or your dog. Send them a message.


You can always tell an ex-drama critic

but you can't tell him much.

I don't think anyone on McCain's side thinks Hussein will be easy to beat, but those on the Left seem to think that since Hussein is getting 90% of the black vote and the majority of the so-called elititist college type crowd that he is a shoo in.

Heck. All the Demo candidates have had that demographic locked up for the past 32 years, so what's new?? And the answer is this.

In the past the Demo candidates could be expected to do enough of the usual things to hold on to a large chunk of the blue collar base.

But this year, as PA showed and as WV and KY is showing, that is no longer the case. When a defeated candidate is getting 66% of the vote, as Hillary is in WV, the Demo base is sending the Frank Rich's of the world a serious message. That he can't figure it out is no surprise.

Where do we get such children?

Three small-town eighth-graders in Minnesota were suspended by their principal for not standing Thursday morning for the Pledge of Allegiance, violating a district policy that the principal now says may soon be reworded to protect free speech rights.

Could it be from reading that Hussein won't wear a flag lapel pin?

Where do we get such children?

"My son wasn't being defiant against America," said Kim Dahl, mother of one of the students, Brandt, who attends Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton Junior High School in northwestern Minnesota.

Brandt told the Forum newspaper in Fargo that Thursday's one-day in-school suspension, "was kind of dumb because I didn't do anything wrong. It should be the people's choice."

Could it be that he never saw his parents stand? Could it be that he has never been taught about the sacrifices made by America? Did anyone ever tell him about the 405,000 who died to destroy a malignant Germany and Japan?

Where do we get such children?

The head of the Minnesota American Civil Liberties Union said that the school's actions against the students are unconstitutional, and his office informed the district of that today in a strongly worded letter.

"The school can't do that; that's illegal," said Chuck Samuelson, the civil liberties group's executive director. "Wow."

Has anyone explained to these children that with rights come responsibilities? Or have they been told repeatedly they they can do anything they want to do, and that they owe nothing to the country of their birth.

Where do we get such children?

Kim Dahl asked Brandt why he has been remained seated all school year, but "he didn't have an answer ... he doesn't get in trouble; he's just a normal 13-year-old."

As for today, she told Brandt to take his cell phone with him to school and text her should he run into trouble again. "I said you should probably just stand if you're not protesting something."

Does the last sentence tell us? Why should a 13 year old be protesting anything?
And if they are, why would a parent not just tell them to knock it off?

How can a 13 year old possibly be mature enough to protest against his country? What have they been taught?

Perhaps the answer to the last question tells us where we get such children.
