Bits and pieces on June 26

There was a poll on AOL that asked the question:

“Do you worry that asteroid or comet could hit the earth.”

58% said yes. They worry. Good grief. Now I know why so many people have bought into the global warming hoax.

They’re dumb.

But things are getting better. I have just being advised that my email address has won $4.6 million dollars. I think I will forward it to one of those people who worry about comets and global warming. Yes. Yes I will. They need encouragement.

And just when we need public transportation:

MIAMI (Reuters) - A "brothel bus" that detectives said cruised Miami Beach offering lap dances and drinks has taken its last ride, police said on Wednesday.

Riders were offered oral sex for $100, according to Miami Beach police who impounded the limousine bus and arrested its operator early on Sunday.

The sleek black bus cruised the South Beach neighborhood popular among tourists and club-goers, offering rides and unlimited drinks for $40.

In the meantime, this from “The Jordan Times” via Diana West

“The ultimate goal, according to campaign spokesperson Zakaria Sheikh, is to enact a universal law that prohibits the defamation of any prophet or religion, similar to the international legislation banning anti-Semitism.”
Aha: The "ultimate goal" is to outlaw debate and dissent about the totalitarian tenets of Islamic ideology. This is a goal being simultaneously pursued on all fronts

Dutch food group, Zwanenberg, which exports “ZWAN” products to the Kingdom, was one of the companies exempted from the boycott after it joined the campaign--

i.e., signed up for Eternal Dhimmitude--

and published an open letter in Arabic dailies.

“Zwanenberg announces its solidarity with the ‘Messenger of Allah Unites Us Campaign’ in its endeavours to pass an international legislation to stop any insult of any religion including Islam and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH),” the letter reads.

Translation: Slurp. Slurp.

And that's not all. According to DutchNews.nl, Zwanenberg's ad also says "it ‘rejects the opinions and statements’ made in [Geert] Wilders’ film ["FItna"] in which he ‘likens Islam to violence’. ‘We strongly condemn these statements about Islam which we think have no other purpose other than to hurt [Muslims].’ "

And the Dutch used to be such realistic people who you didn’t push around. Oh well, now we can see the result of 20 years or so of PC indoctrination.

And not to make a big deal, and correct me if I’m wrong, haven’t all the terrorism acts been committed by radical Muslims? I mean besides the cartoons of the Prophet…

You know, if this is in Europe now, it will be in the US within 10 years unless we stop it. Count on it.

So you want to know why I’m voting for McCain?
Reason number 1.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Americans have a right to own guns for self-defense and hunting, the justices' first major pronouncement on gun rights in U.S. history.

The court's 5-4 ruling struck down the District of Columbia's 32-year-old ban on handguns as incompatible with gun rights under the Second Amendment. The decision went further than even the Bush administration wanted, but probably leaves most firearms laws intact.

Can you imagine a SC doing with this with even ONE justice appointed by Hussein 57?

And finally, here is a chance for all you solar power and greenies to put your money where your mouth is.

Oh wait. I know. You want the government to spend someone else’s money…

BTW – I have no idea as to the value of the information in the link. But shrewd investors always want to get in on the ground floor…. Which reminds me of a Southern Joke.

Bubba was down at his bank arranging a production loan with his banker friend, Billy Bob. Bubba had always grown cotton and seem to sink a little deeper in debt each year. The situation was now terminal if something wasn’t done.

“Bubba,” Billy Bob said, “This can’t go on. I’m gonna loan you enough money for the crop, but you gotta start raising corn.

Bubba protested, but gave in when he recognized the finality of Bill Bob’s offer.

Well, he did. And the first year was a success. The second even better. The third
beyond belief.

It was now March and Billy Joe noted that Bubba hadn’t shown up for his loan. Later that week he ran into him at the Country Club and asked, “When you coming by for your loan?”

“Fraid I’m not,” said Bubba. “I’ve made so much raising corn that I can afford to go back to raising cotton.”

People do not easily give up their dreams.

Later, dear Chums.

Two can play the PC game -Update

I think the following is self explanatory.

I find your ad regarding McCain's age highly biased in favor of the
Democrats and insulting to all senior citizens.

You should be ashamed.

I love this response.

My emailed reply was:

It would appear that you choose to not understand my complaint.

Specifically, your ad asks if the viewer wants to know John McCain's age.

That is making a political point in favor of Obama. It is a de facto political ad.

Plus, by bringing his age into question you imply that he is too old. That is an insult to senior citizens.

You know, there are probably a million different ways you could advertise your company.

Your choice shows us the bias.

I don't know which is more scary. That the responder knows what I am writing about, or that he doesn't.

Stay tuned chums, I'll send you his answer.... if he sends one.

Well, they seem concerned...here's the reply...

We appreciate your input, but it remains unclear to us exactly which advertisement you are referring to. We have consulted with our Ad Sales team, and checked all the network ads that appear on any relevant AnswerPage we could think of, but found no advertisement asking if the viewer wants to know John McCain’s age. Could you please send us the URL (Internet address) of the Answers.com page you're referring to? Answers.com pages always start "http://www.answers.com/..." or "http://wiki.answers.com/...." Alternatively, if you can remember exactly what phrase you looked up to reach this page, that might also help. Any other details could provide would be helpful.

If, on the other hand, you are referring to the WikiAnswers questions that appear on http://www.answers.com/topic/john-mccain, well, that’s just WikiAnswers. At the user-generated Q&A site http://Wiki.Answers.com, anyone can ask a question on any topic - in their own words - and get an answer written by members of the WikiAnswers community. If you clicked on that link (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_old_is_John_McCain), you would have found a simple, straight answer to a question that people are asking: 71. Similarly, if you were to ask WikiAnswers about Sen. McCain’s war injuries or purple heart, you would find answers to those too, though not as detailed (yet).

Note how they try and reframe the point....
Guess they run lots of ads about McCain's age... My response....

The ad I refer to was in the ......, the morning paper for said city for more than 50years.

Catholics bow down in France.

Employees removed a crucifix in a room at the Catholic clinic Saint-Vincent de Paul in Bourgoin-Jallieu after the Muslim father of a patient demanded they do so before treating his daughter.

You know, isn't it time that some insulted Muslim be calmly told that if he can't stand "whatever insult" he finds so terrible that he should just leave. Go. You have strong feelings about your religion? Fine. Go. You're in my house and acting poorly. Go.

Hit the road Jack and don't come back until you reached an understanding that you are not the center of the universe and you don't have a right to demand everyone accommodate you.

Sigh..... of course that will never happen because we are just so reasonable...Reasonable idoits is what we are.

Misunderstanding fixed

My thanks to whoever sent it.

Again, who's counting??

From The Loft:

Just how much Senate experience does Barack Obama have in terms of actual work days? Not much.
From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate. That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.
After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan.
143 days -- I keep leftovers in my refrigerator longer than that.
In contrast, John McCain's 26 years in Congress, 22 years of military service including 1,966 days in captivity as a POW in Hanoi now seem more impressive than ever. At 71, John McCain may just be hitting his stride.
Think about IT!!!

Now you understand why he wanted to nuke Pakistan, wants no precoditions for meetings with our enemies, etc.

He is truly an empty suit with an empty head.

The Danish National Socialist Movement (DNSB) is currently running a 'charm offensive', passing out flyers against multiculturalism and encouraging people to join.

The flyers wish all race and culture foreigners a good trip home.

You gotta love it.
