Moonbat! Moonbat!

Did you ever wonder where the word used to describe our Leftie friends came from?

6:35 p.m. There is a far-left columnist name George Monbiot, and it's widely believed that his name gave rise to the term "moonbat." He tried to make a citizen's arrest of John Bolton in England after our former UN ambassador gave a speech at a literary festival. Security guards blocked the arrest. Apparently, Mr. Monbiot believes Mr. Bolton to be a war criminal, no better than the Nazis. Monbiot's feelings about Osama bin Laden or Saddam Hussein were not immediately apparent.

My thanks to the always interesting, and authoritative UrgentAgenda.

Perhaps someone can now tell us about "Wingnuts." Heaven knows people calling each other "Moonbat" and "Wingnut" add so much to Western civilization and culture...

Pass the koolaid, darling. All this heavy typing raises a thirst.

Bits and pieces

Feel better than I have in a while. The drugs must be working overtime...

Speaking of Working Overtime...

Finally purchased a MPEG player and Bose headset.... loaded over 400 songs on it...all golden oldies.... Amazing.... over 400 songs and you can understand every word of them..... Well, almost every... Most Yankees couldn't understand Elvis.. which contributed to his popularity... They all thought he was saying, "I got something in my pants...."

Now I can listen to such classics as "Call me"..... "Speedo"..... "They all can call me Speedo but my real name is Mr. Earl......" Such depth...

And then there was "Little Darling"..... Did anyone ever write, "Big Beautiful Woman Darling?" Of course not. But then that was before the Internet...

The wet cool weather continues. The woods around the palatial retirement compound are a dark green and all of the grass and trees are so full of moisture they look like they will pop if touched. The resident two deer come out on the lower side every late afternoon for a drink and a casual measuring look at me kicked back on the deck enjoying them.... I think they know I am a meat eater, but too lazy and too unstressed in the protein supply to bother them. But based on the actions of the stock market and the price of oil...someone should advise them to exercise caution.

I have read a few comments in a few blogs that say that MSNBC and NBC are pro Hussein... Ah, the insight of the Internet astounds me..

Was it "Hardball's" Chris Matthews saying of Hussein, "He sends a tingle up my leg" that tipped them off? Perhaps. I mean Matthews was speaking of his political leg.... wasn't he??

I heard this during my last trip to LA at a poker table.

Little Blind had just called and Big Blind raised. The action was heads up.

Big Blind said as Little Blind agonized over what to do. "I raised with Big Slick. Without stretching my brain I can think of 4 things that can happen on the flop. Three of them are good for me, one good for you... Please call..."

He got his wish and won a fair sized pot. Even when they are told the dummies won't leave...

Hillary has mailed a letter and 12 page treatise as seen here explaining why she's the one. She fails to remember that, as Chris Matthews showed, logic can never overcome love.

This from BizzBlog who continues to do masterful work in showing the deception and utter nonsense of the MSM.

With all the hype about the home-price plunge,......Prices nationwide were 3.1% lower than they were a year ago.....WITH the decrease during the last four quarters, that’s 47.6% appreciation in seven years.

Only 47.6%. The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

....Appreciation during the seven years that ended on March 31, 2001, almost all of it before George Bush took office and started ruining everything (/sarc), was 36.3%

Yeah, but a Demo was President!!!

Later dear chums!

Well some Muslims hang gays

At least all this one is doing is threatening to sue about a transgender person.

A sex swap instructor at an all-female driving school was left devastated when the Sheffield husband of one of her pupils threatened to sue her firm – for sending a man to teach his Muslim wife.

Emma Sherdley – formerly a married dad of two called Andrew but now legally a woman – […] has a birth certificate and a "gender recognition certificate" to prove her legal status as a woman […]. She is being backed by her boss, Laugh n Pass owner Joanne Dixon, who says the man had called her to accuse the firm of sending a man disguised as a woman because he was a Muslim. […]

"That man accused us of being racist, yet his attitude towards Emma showed prejudice of the very worst kind. […] He was saying, 'You have sent me a man, send me a proper female, how dare you send a man with a deep voice'. Then he claimed we had deliberately sent a man disguised as a woman because he was a Muslim. […]

Emma says the outburst had made her seriously consider quitting her job. But she says Joanne's support has made her determined to ride out the storm and carry on with her career.

"...."That man accused us of being racist, yet his attitude towards Emma showed prejudice of the very worst kind....."

Uh, read any newspapers? Internet?? No? Why am I not surprised??

There will always be an England.

Not bloody likely if this keeps up.

A few days ago (Friday, May 23rd) 18 year-old Ben Smith was stopped, in a routine check by a police officer, while driving his Vauxhall Corsa to his home in Melksham, Wiltshire. The officer found nothing amiss, but noticed an England flag on the parcel shelf (which Mr. Smith used to cover his music system from potential thieves) and ordered him to remove it. According to Smith:

"He saw the flag and said it was racist towards immigrants and if I refused to take it down I would get a £30 fine. I laughed because I thought he was joking, but then I realized he was serious so I had to take it down straight away. I thought it was silly – it's my country and I want to show my support for my country."

This is merely the latest in a long line of such “politically correct” discrimination on the part of England’s authorities or its employees. In January 2007, a 27 year old man was ordered by Bedford Council to take down an England flag, that he had hung on the side of his house. In 2006 a fire station was ordered to remove an England flag, because, they were told, it might offend ethnic minorities (despite the local mosque protesting that it did not), and earlier this year a government report revealed that children were routinely punished for wearing clothing bearing the English flag.

But, then, ‘England’ is a subversive idea to a government that wants to hold the United Kingdom (UK) together, to sink it into the homogenizing machine of the European Union (EU). And ‘England’ and English nationalism are anathema to political correctness.

The cop would fit right in with Hussein..

Nice work if you can get it

and you can get it if you live in Brussels...

Now, even as El Aroud remains under constant surveillance, she is back home rallying militants on her Web site -- and collecting more than $1,100 a month in government unemployment benefits. "Her jihad is not to lead an operation but to inspire other people to wage jihad," said Glenn Audenaert, the director of Belgium's federal police force. "She enjoys the protection that Belgium offers. At the same time, she is a potential threat."

We called them Fellow Travelers in my day. Always just on the inside of being legal, always ready to attack the US and cheer on the Soviets.

Nothing has changed.
