“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Don't eco-hippies stink enough as it is?

If it were possible to gouge out my mind's eye, that's what I'd be doing right about now.....

“Natural living” advocates unveil their latest planet-saving invention - the reusable toilet wipe.

Are you kidding me? Of course deranged eco-hippies smell pretty rank already....it already requires daily baths in patchouli oil just to hide the disgusting smells of deoderantless underarm, unwashed feet, and daily refer use. What'll they have to do to hide this smell? People this stupid should warn the rest of us with signage or something to stay away. If you want to read all about reusable adult wipies, head on over to HippieCentral.com, and don't invite me to your house.

Would you wipe your butt with one of these....and then keep it?

Throw rocks at a wasps' nest, and there's a good chance your dumb ass will get stung...

A SWARM of wasps is believed to have attacked 30 schoolchildren in the central Queensland city of Mackay after rocks were thrown at their nest.

It is believed some children in the school group were throwing rocks at a wasps' nest in Queens Park, Mackay, when the swarm of wasps emerged, attacking about 30 children.

I can remember doing stupid stuff like this as a kid but, we threw from far away for two reasons: first was to make it more of a challenge, and second, TO MAKE SURE WE COULD RUN AWAY AND NOT GET STUNG!

What a bunch of idiots! They probably stood right under it to make it easier to hit. These kids are the Darwin Award competitors for the next 20 years.

Kids, do not throw rocks at these.

When reality mirrors fiction

I've been saying this for several years now. Ayn Rand absolutely nailed liberalism and it's modern believers when she wrote Atlas Shrugged, and it's coming to pass as Obama and treacherous, far-left democrats Reid and Pelosi seize control of parts of American life we never thought possible. Here's the Executive Direcgtor from the Rand Center commenting on why sales of Atlas have skyrocketed since The One took over....

Washington, D.C., February 23, 2009--Sales of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” have almost tripled over the first seven weeks of this year compared with sales for the same period in 2008. This continues a strong trend after bookstore sales reached an all-time annual high in 2008 of about 200,000 copies sold.

“Americans are flocking to buy and read ‘Atlas Shrugged’ because there are uncanny similarities between the plot-line of the book and the events of our day” said Yaron Brook, Executive Director at the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights. “Americans are rightfully concerned about the economic crisis and government’s increasing intervention and attempts to control the economy. Ayn Rand understood and identified the deeper causes of the crisis we’re facing, and she offered, in ‘Atlas Shrugged,’ a principled and practical solution consistent with American values."

If you are conservative or even think you might be, and you've never read it, you must read Atlas Shrugged immediately. Other than the Bible, this is the most important book written for our time.

Hat tip to Hotair.

Taunt the mother of your rape victim.....get set on fire

Meh(shrugs), I don't have much of a problem with this....

A Spanish mother has taken revenge on the man who raped her 13-year-old daughter at knifepoint by dousing him in petrol and setting him alight. He died of his injuries in hospital on Friday.
Antonio Cosme Velasco Soriano, 69, had been sent to jail for nine years in 1998, but was let out on a three-day pass and returned to his home town of Benejúzar, 30 miles south of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca.
While there, he passed his victim's mother in the street and allegedly taunted her about the attack. He is said to have called out "How's your daughter?", before heading into a crowded bar.
Shortly after, the woman walked into the bar, poured a bottle of petrol over Soriano and lit a match. She watched as the flames engulfed him, before walking out.

I can't say I blame her. If somebody victimize and brutalized my 13 year old, then taunted me about it, he'd be lucky to get off with just a good burning. I don't know if they allow the concept of jury nullification in Spain but, this would be a good time to use it.

It's Ann Coulter Thursday!

This week Ann discusses the democrats' dereliction and utter failure in public education, rightly pointing out the hypocricy of privilidged democrats always not trusting government schools with their own children but insisting that you must trust public schools with yours.

The money quote on our obsession with Obama being the first black to do literally everything he does... But as long as the nation is obsessed with historic milestones, is no one going to remark on what a great country it is where a mentally retarded woman can become speaker of the house?

And on his education remarks.... He was suspiciously verbose about saving the jobs of public schoolteachers. Because nothing says "economic stimulus" better than saving the jobs of lethargic incompetents who kick off at 2 p.m. every day and get summers off. Actually, that's not fair: Some teachers spend long hours after school having sex with their students.

Bobby Jindal...not a snake-oil salesman

The drooling, Obama sycophants in the main-stream media(and bizarrely some of the conservative ones too) are calling Bobby Jindal's republican response on Tuesday night a lack-luster performance because he lacked the charisma and style of Obama. They are completely ignoring the substance of what he said, which was spot-on conservatism. By contrast, Obama said nothing of substance, just big plans to spend the country into depression by paying back political favors. Just because Obama says it and Chris Matthews gets and erection, doesn't make it substantive or a good idea.

Is this the standard now by which we judge our politicians? Their smooth, seductive delivery? Obama is long on salesmanship and pathetically short on substance. He is nothing but an inexperienced empty suit filled with nothing but flowery rhetoric packaged in a slick presentation....oh, I forgot, throw in boundless, liberal's lust to control everybodys' lives. He's got plenty of that too.

Behold, the face of 90% of the MSM.

Obama's actions speak louder than his words

Last night, The Obamessiah pompously lectured us on the value of education....

"So tonight I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training," Obama said. "This can be a community college or a four-year school, vocational training or an apprenticeship. But whatever the training may be, every American will need to get more than a high school diploma."

This was nothing but empty rhetoric designed to sound good to half-witted Americans sitting at home wondering when their TV shows would come back on, and give the drooling idiots in the media something else to praise him about. If he were serious about kids in America finishing high-school, he would remove all the safety nets, hand-outs, and give-aways for stupid kids who drop out and then whine that nobody will hire them. There's no down side to not finishing school anymore....heck, there's not even any shame in being a dropout. If you have no personal pride, sense of responsibility, or life ambition(read: average democrat voter) then you can make more money sitting at home watching Oprah and getting high than you can at an entry-level job, thanks to the generous welfare handouts we shower on the dumbest and laziest among us. Democrats don't want people finishing highschool. They might get a good job, start making money, then suddenly realize they'd like to keep more of it and start voting republican. No, for democrats to remain in power, the dumber, poorer, and more helpless you think you are, the better.

Thanks to the fabulous cash and prizes that Obama showers onto the uneducated, the unemployed, the single and pregnant, and the shifless and lazy, most classrooms will look like this.

If we weren't laughing, we'd be crying

Regular reader David sent this to me today. It pretty much sums up conservatives' feeling toward the liberal triumverate currently controlling Washington. Pelosi and Reid are two of the stupidest democrats ever to achieve such high government positions....which makes the abysmally inexperienced Obama seem absolutely clueless by comparison, as he lets himself be led around by the nose by these two half-wits.

Obama must have learned history in dreadful public schools

For those of you with strong stomachs who watched Obama's address to Congress last night, you may have noticed his error when speaking about the automobile industry....

"I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it."

It is a widely held belief that Henry Ford invented the first car but in fact, Karl Friedrich Benz invented the first internal combustion vehicle in 1885. Henry Ford introduced the assembly line manufacturing process for the automobile. Since then America proudly pioneered and innovated the car industry for decades until the unions took over, now the American auto industry is a laughable shadow of it's former self, geared more to providing lavish cash and prizes to lazy, crooked union bosses rather than building and selling cars.

This is the early Benz, it might resemble what we all drive if Obama continues to plunge the country into ruin.

Comet Lulin approaches Earth

In the next few nights, comet Lulin can be seen in the eastern sky with the naked eye or better with binoculars. This is the comet's first visible pass near Earth. It's tail streaks normally away from the Sun and it's cloud(the size of Jupiter) glows green because it burns off cyanogen gas, diatomic carbon, and 800 gallons of water a second. Go out tonight and check it out with your kids. Here's an easy to figure out chart of when and where to look. Good luck!

Woman channeling Icarus, proves Darwinian selection instead

You wonder how some people manage to stay alive as long as they do.....

A woman fell 80ft to her death over a cliff edge in Devon while chasing a feather, coastguards have said.

Last Updated: 11:16AM GMT 23 Feb 2009

The walker, who was in her 40s, had been following a coastal footpath when she spotted the bird feather and went to pick it up.

As the wind caught it and blew it close to the edge, she ignored safety warnings and climbed over metal railings lining the cliff top.

She then lost her footing and fell from the rocky outcrop to the beach below at Budleigh Salterton, Devon.

If only she had been able to grasp the feather as she fell, she could have flapped furiously and eased her descent, just like Wile E. Coyote does when he chases the Road-Runner off a cliff.

Taxpayer money is being wasted on nutty missions to study harmless plant food....

Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) -- A satellite launched from California failed to reach orbit today, crashing into the sea near Antarctic and dooming a $273 million mission to study global-warming gases.

The NASA satellite was to orbit 438 miles (705 kilometers) above Earth and observe how carbon dioxide enters and leaves the atmosphere, helping scientists predict future increases in the main greenhouse gas blamed for global warming. Instead, the satellite fell in the ocean near Antarctica though the mission manager said at no point did the craft pass over land.

Ordinarily I'd be elated that stupid environmentalists had a set-back of this magnitude but, their embarrassing failure, while amusing, costs the American taxpayer over a quarter of a billion dollars. NASA needs to be planning the terraforming of Mars so we can colonize and exploit it in a hundred years, not chasing an idiotic, global-warming red herring.

Obama was an ACORN trainer

You want to know why honest, hard-working, responsible people all over the country are on the verge of revolt today? You want to know why gun sales are skyrocketing right now? You want to know why the stock market tumbles every time The One opens his mouth? Watch this....

Obama cut his teeth in the corruption of Chicago politics being a trainer for ACORN, and this same outfit that breaks into privately-owned homes is receiving $4.19Billion-with-a-B in stimulus cash from Obama as payback for commiting massive voter fraud to help elect him. Outrageously, ACORN is under federal investigation for it's role in the housing meltdown in the first place, yet they'll receive billions? Where are the police? This is outright breaking and entering, a crime last time I checked.

It's this kind of lawlessness and chaos that's driving responsible, self-disciplined, employed Americans who live within their means and pay their mortgages on time, to stock up on guns and ammo. At some point there's going to be some sort of revolt in this country. I just hope it's before too much damage can be done by democrats.

Sucking at the government teat

These pigs are named California, Florida, and Illinois, and the trough is money seized from current taxpayers or borrowed from future taxpayers.

I haven't blogged at all this weekend because I just had to take a break from the mind-numbing frustration and resentment from watching the US swirling, day after day, down the drain toward apathy, mediocrity, and socialism at the hands of a half-witted, community agitator and his worshippers in the media. But I'm ready to get back on the horse now.

If you want to see the pathetic states clamoring for a slice of the porkulus pie, head on over to StimulusWatch, click on your state and see precisely what your craven, elected leaders think are worthwhile projects for which other state's taxpayers should pay. This is the list of projects that should have been made public before our reprehensible congressmen rushed it through and The One signed it into law.

The coming CO2-regulation, cap-and-trade scheme

As if life for Americans right now isn't hard enough with the economy in shambles, President Zero is mulling over the preposterous idea of making everything still more expensive by regulating(read: taxing) the harmless plant food, CO2....

The Obama administration on Tuesday agreed to review whether it should regulate carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants, portending a major reversal of the Bush administration's policy on global warming.

Like literally everything else liberals do, whether it's taxing, spending, regulating, or nationalizing, they do it falsley in the name of a victim group such as "the children", "minorities", "working families", or the excuse of the day, "the environment". But it's never about these things, and you can tell because the problems never go away or get solved regardless of how much of other peoples' money the government spends to fix them. It's about terrifying the populace with one imaginary hobgobblin(like global warming) after another in order to create a larger dependent class of needy Americans clamoring for rescue, which leads to greater political power, nothing else.

Taxing CO2 will only make everything more expensive and create more misery and pain for people but, that's what craven democrats need....because people who're hurting are more likely to surrender their freedoms to politicians in exchange for the promise of safety and relief.

Being nothing but a community agitator, senate back-bencher, and empty suit, Obama is being led around by the nose by seasoned political operators like Imanuel, Pelosi, and Reid. I really don't think he has a clue what he's doing to the country.

Bad karma, bad, bad karma

There are some evil, depraved people out there....

Two Girl Scouts and their troop leader were robbed as they sold cookies outside a San Antonio store, reports say.

The 9-year-old girls were packing up after hours of selling cookies outside a Walgreens in the city's North Side on Wednesday night when a man approached and stole their money, about $250.

There's an especially hot place in hell for the dude who robs little girls of cookie money.


What you do in the privacy of your home is your business....that is until it sets a bad example for your 3 minor children. A Nebraska stoner found this out the hard way....

WAVERLY, Neb. — A 15-year-old Waverly girl has turned in her mom for allegedly smoking marijuana in front of her.

The 32-year-old woman was cited on suspicion of child abuse and marijuana possession.

The daughter called the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office, and authorities executed a search warrant of her mother's home on Wednesday.

The girl told authorities where they could find the woman's drug paraphernalia and marijuana. One gram of pot was found.

If you are such a refer-addict that you cannot put down the whacky-terbacky when your kids are around, then you deserve to be snitched on by them. What do you bet this 15 year old is the only "adult" in the house? Sad!

Rush's open letter to Obama re: Fairness Doctrine

Over at WSJ online, Rush Limbaugh penned an open letter to President Obama regarding the ridiculously named Fairness Doctrine. If you aren't familiar with the Left's back-door intentions to kill conservative talk radio, then start paying attention already. And read this letter. Rush sums up what the plan is and urges Obama not to go along with the democrats' heavy-handed attempt to censor dissenting opinion.

Cashing in on stupidity

Great! Here we go again with the next in a long line of rounds of extortion, of fabulous cash and prizes from tobacco companies....

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - While one Florida jury neared its decision that Philip Morris must pay a smoker's widow $8 million in damages, another panel was being selected in the same courtroom for the next tobacco case before the same judge.

The second of 8,000 similar Florida lawsuits filed against tobacco companies by Florida smokers and their families begins Thursday, a day after the first ended.

In the first one, six jurors deliberated over two days before returning the award Wednesday for Elaine Hess, 63, whose husband, Stuart Hess, died in 1997 at age 55 after decades as a chain smoker.

I feel nothing but hostility and derision toward families of people(who knowingly engaged in self-destructive behavior for decades and died from it) and then expect a pay-day because of it. Just because your skeevy lawyer tricked 12 idiots into feeling sorry for you, doesn't mean you deserve a prize.

Here's our Smoker-in-Chief. He looks real sophisticated doesn't he? If he wasn't President, his predatory legal team would probably be extorting millions from big tobacco too...oh wait, they already did.

Let the race-baiting begin

Black attorney general and former Janet Reno lapdog, Eric Holder doesn't think too highly of Americans...

WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States Wednesday as a nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing unresolved racial issues.
In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," said Holder, nation's first black attorney general.

He urged people of all races to use Black History Month as a chance for frank talk about racial matters.

He told Justice Department employees they have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding.

Since when is it the responsibility of the Justice Department to advance racial understanding? I thought it's responsibility was to, regardless of race and based on the Constitution, insure justice.....thus the name. Stupid me.

I don't know why I ever expect democrats to simply do their jobs rather than advance the liberal, socialist agenda. I should always expect less from liberals rather than more.

The cost of insanity

I don't know why, but this cracked me up....

For some reason, Steppin' Out Magazine (via Gawker) asked Kristin Davis, the owner of the Eliot Spitzer favorite, Wicked Models escort agency, how much she would charge for some of today's biggest stars....

1. Britney Spears: "If she cleaned herself up maybe I could get a thousand dollars an hour for her. But if was the old Britney before she went crazy I could have gotten $2,000 easy."

A 50% loss in prostitute-income potential, just for being borderline insane. That's harsh!

Thanks to idontlikeyouinthatway.

Turns out, Obama is just another braying-jackass politician

As The One signs into law today, the single biggest, and most underhanded, move toward a socialist-style state we've ever imagined in America, I know what all of you out there are thinking right about now...

"Hey Ed, what happend to all the hope and change, honesty and light, and transparency and sunshine Obama promised us"?

Well over at Sweetness & Light via ConservativeGrapevine, there's a short post about how Obama broke a bunch of campaign primises, just in the last couple of days.

It shows you, Obama is nothing but another craven, left-wing politician who has an unbounded lust for power and regards the Constitution as a troublesome obstacle to his goal of seizing control of every facet of life in America for the democrat party.

Pat Robertson is a tool!

I've always thought Pat Robertson was a decent guy but, he tends to come out of left field unexpectedly sometimes. Like when he was interviewed recently about Obama's start as CiC.....

Interviewer: So you don't subscribe to Rush Limbaugh's "I hope he fails" school of thought?
Pat: "That was a terrible thing to say. I mean, he's the president of all the country. If he succeeds, the country succeeds. And if he doesn't, it hurts us all. Anybody who would pull against our president is not exactly thinking rationally."

Pat's playing the role of the useful-idiot populist he adopts every now and then. He's a traditional conservative but, once in a while he goes along with the the liberal crowd by stating whatever is popular at the time. How he can intentionally misrepresent Rush's comments on Obama is outrageous. I agree with Rush, that if success to Obama means that he plunges the country further toward a European-style, socialist, nanny-State then I hope he fails miserably too. Pat's just talking out of his rear end again.

Here's Robertson squeezing out another pearl of wisdom.

The Stimulus Package Simplified

Posted by Reid:


Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota.
All three go with a White House official to examine the fence. The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring,then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100profit for me."
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700."
The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"
The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you,and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."
"Done!" replies the government official.
And that, my friends, is how the new stimulus plan will work

Bobo the monkey finally got tired of bananas

I've said it before, and I'll say it again....you cannot domesticate wild animals....

STAMFORD, Conn. (CBS) ― A woman continues to fight for her life Tuesday morning following a bizarre attack by a pet chimpanzee.

The chimpanzee, considered a fixture in the north Stamford community, turned into a monster on Monday afternoon, attacking a 55-year-old woman after she showed up at the home of the animal's owner, at 241 Rockrimmon Road.

"He bit both of her hands off and the cop told me he just kept eating her. It's terrible," said Lynne Mecca, a friend of the victim.

I don't care how human-like it behaves, how cute it looks in diapers, or how many tricks you teach it, it's still a carnivorous, wild animal and cannot be trusted not to try to eat you at some point.

Stupid people, I swear!

Peace in the Middle East...still just a Miss America pageant cliche'

Too bad Tzipi Livni isn't as smart as she is attractive.....

Tzipi Livni, who hopes to be appointed Israel's prime minister-designate, said Monday Israel must give up considerable territory in exchange for peace with the Palestinians, drawing a clear distinction with her rival, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Has Tzipi seen Gaza lately?

When you're dealing with third-world, nomadic zealots who're controlled by Jew-hating terrorists who have never respected an agreement, what makes her think they'll respect any, any peace agreement this time? Israel gave up the Gaza strip to the Palestinians 3 years ago. They left a vibrant community complete with housing, markets, and infrastructure. Within weeks the Palestinians had turned it into a dysfunctional, unproductive slum and staging ground for Hamas terrorist attacks in Israelis.

The violence will not stop for any reason until Isreal finally destroys, once and for all, Hamas, Hezbollah, and any other Jew-hating terrorists that threaten it's security and citizenry. Only then will there be peace.

Tyranny by the few

I want my stupid pack of 9 airplane peanuts.....

ATLANTA, Georgia (CNN) -- The return of peanuts to the snack menu at Northwest Airlines this month has prompted a spasm of protests from travelers with allergies.

That little, impossible to open, bag of airplane peanuts is just about the only pleasant thing about the commercial flying experience these days. Now that they are bringing them back, the airlines plan to create a three-row, no-peanut buffer zone around any allergy sufferer. But what about the rights of those 18 people who have to eat dry, disgusting pretzels because they were unlucky enough to have an assigned seat near a peanut allergic? Why must the rights of the abnormal always supplant the rights of the normal? If you are that allergic to peanuts, take the frickin' bus.

The dumb environmentalists' war on hamburgers

This is how stupid the global-warming hoax is getting....

When it comes to global warming, hamburgers are the Hummers of food, scientists say.
Simply switching from steak to salad could cut as much carbon as leaving the car at home a couple days a week.

That's because beef is such an incredibly inefficient food to produce and cows release so much harmful methane into the atmosphere, said Nathan Pelletier of Dalhousie University in Canada.
Pelletier is one of a growing number of scientists studying the environmental costs of food from field to plate

There's a growing number of scientists studying global warming only because there's a growing number of dollars being spent to coax scientists to say global warming is real. If you received a million dollars from Al Gore to study global warming, are you going to come back with data showing no link between man's activities and earth temperature? No, you're going to make the statistics say whatever you know Al Gore wants them to say, because it'll keep your funding stream alive.

When are these idiots going to admit...THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS GLOBAL WARMING!...?

Now that's a hamburger! It's carbon footprint might be as big as one of Al Gore's 30,000sq-ft mansions, or his house boat, or his private jet, or his ego.

Wanted: Male Teachers

This is about what I would have guessed.....

From an article over at NationalSummary.

Back in my college days, I remember meeting female education majors who were downright hostile to men becoming elementary school teachers. One acquaintance even told me that other than mopping the floors or cutting the grass, men have no business being in an elementary school.

And men themselves have their own negative perceptions about teaching such as the educators not being masculine enough, poor salaries, isolation from being in a female dominated field to an apprehension from the public. In addition, other issues such as teachers losing more control of the classroom or schools becoming too “politically correct” or too politicized instead of focusing on education have added fuel to the fire.

As a result, the numbers of male teachers are astonishingly low. According to the teacher’s union, The National Education Association, out of three million teachers, only 21 percent are male and when elementary schools are taken into account, that percentage plummets to only 9 percent.

It's a crying shame when more male teachers are needed to lower, that's right, I said LOWER the incidence of teacher/student sex. I think the dearth of male teachers is due to a single factor: it's men's wise fear of even the appearance of inappropriate contact with a student and the life-ruining law suit the parents will inevitably file that keeps them out of the classroom.

Where's the transparency, Obama?

Obama's promise to lead the most transparent administration in presidential history turns out to have been one of the biggest lies in presidential history...

After pushing Congress for weeks to hurry up and pass the massive $787 billion stimulus bill, President Obama promptly took off for a three-day holiday getaway.

His rhetoric of impending doom along with Pelosi and Reid's naked lust for power forced the biggest spending bill in US history through without anybody even reading it. Of the 48 hours that were promised to the American people to examine the bill, Pelosi's maggot-like staffers used up 30 of them to convert the format of the bill to .pdf. As you know, .pdf files cannot be searched for key words of phrases, they can only be read, just like paper. Then they put it online in the dead of the night before the vote leaving republicans no time to comb over it.

Then, once it passed, instead of signing it on Friday as if the sky were falling like he told us, The One took a three day vacation and he won't sign it until Tuesday. If he didn't plan on signing it until Tuesday, why not let republicans examine the bill over the long weekend and vote on Tuesday too? This was nakedly about Obama, Reid, and Pelosi using scare tactics to get their way, and cramming the biggest, government power grab in history through congress before Americans got a good look at it.

Transparent my ass!

BAGHDAD — Iraqi officials nullified election results in more than 30 polling stations due to fraud in last month's provincial balloting.

Does God control literally every single thing?

Over at Secular Right, Heather Mac Donald has a very good point to make about the different outcomes and subsequent interpretations of two recent airline disasters....

Will Bill O’Reilly or anyone else who saw the hand of God in the safe landing of US Airways Flight 1549 this January please explain why God chose not to save Continental Connection Flight 3407, which plunged into a house outside of Buffalo last night, killing all 49 people on board and a resident on the ground?

Among the explanations which will not be accepted: “humans cannot possibly fathom God’s mysterious ways.” Oh yes they can, apparently—when something good happens. Having found proof of God’s love in the safe conclusion of US Airways Flight 1549, believers cannot now turn around and claim that God’s ways are veiled just because something disastrous happens. If it’s legitimate to infer beneficence from a happy outcome, it is equally plausible to infer malice or at least indifference from a negative outcome. You can’t pick and choose the actions in which you find God’s will transparent.

I don't know if Heather's an atheist or not and it doesn't matter. She's not arguing from an atheists perspective, she's arguing from a perspective of reason. I've made this point myself, everytime I hear some poor parent on the news who lost a child to a horrible disease or murder, explaining that it must have been God's will. I refuse to believe that God has a direct hand in every horrible, and for that matter every wonderful, thing that happens to us. How does that make any sense at all? What kind of a loving God would have somebody's 3 year old kidnapped, raped, and murdered? The answer, obvious to any thinking person, is God wouldn't do that to somebody. Since Adam and Eve were granted free will, we humans have manufactured all manner of ways, intentional or not, to bring harm to ourselves, either directly or through pure chance. God can use these disasters for the ones who're left but, I don't believe for an instant that he causes these disasters any more than I believe his hand guided flight 1549 gently and safely into the Hudson. That flight had a very experienced pilot, daylight, and a convenient body of water with boats all around to ditch into. Flight 3407 was over ground, in icy weather, at night. Did that arrangement of environments somehow fit into God's master plan to kill 50 people on one plane and rescue 150 from the other? Do you hear how preposterous that sounds?

The Religion of Peace strikes again

Muzzammil Hassan started a Muslim-oriented TV station in an effort to show Americans that Islam is not a barbaric cult for blood-thirsty, third-world savages---EPIC FAIL!!!

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband -- an influential member of the local Muslim community -- reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

How exactly does one hack off the head of his wife for wanting to divorce him, and only get charged with second degree murder?

This Muslim's wife must have talked back or something.

How to express my outrage? Let me count the ways

Regular reader David, apparently frustrated with the limitations of expression of outrage through text, has decided to try his hand at political commentary through art instead. Not bad if I do say so. Well done, Dave.

Nancy Pelosi pulls a fast one

Nancy Pelosi is a vile, loathsome wretch! As speaker, she promised that this absurd "stimulus" bill would be posted publically for at least 48 hours so we could get a good look at it before they voted. (Note: In any representative republic, where taxpayers elect their leaders, legislation should be gone over with a fine toothed comb and debated before any vote is taken). Well, the vote will be taken this morning at around 10:00 and the text of the bill wasn't posted until 11:00 last night. Republicans hadn't even seen it yet as they were omitted from the drafting process.

This is the most outrageous rape of the American public since the last Milli-Vanilli album. There's no telling what abomination is hidden in this monstrosity, and it'll be too late by the time we find out. It'll already be on The One's desk where Rahm Emmanuel will have him sign it, because as an inexperienced, community agitator, he doesn't know any better.

I just hope republicans stay away from it and it'll become the alabtross around Obama's, Pelosi's, and Reid's necks.

Heaven help us!

It'll soon be Rahm Emmanuel's turn under the Hope-n-Change Bus

Well, it looks like Judd Gregg has had enough humiliation for one career. A republican, he was Obama's second pick for Commerce Secretary in a lame attempt to convince us that he was the post-partisan President. In a census year, which 2010 is, traditionally the census is overseen by the Commerce Department, however, Rahm Emmanual saw an opportunity to manipulate the census and create millions of new democrat voters out of thin air by running the census out of the White House. Essentially, this left Gregg with little else to do as secretary. Combine this appauling immasculation of Gregg with his already queezy stomach over the ridiculous stimulus package and he just couldn't take it anymore and removed himself from consideration for that post today.

To watch The One get royally pwned by a republican has been enjoyable today, to say the least. Knowing that Rahm Emmanuel caused this humiliation and embarassment of The One was priceless. It's the chief-of-staff's job to fill cabinet positions with good people and the many transition mistakes and flubs make Obama look like Rahm Emmanuel has his hand up Obama's butt operating him like a puppet. I wonder when it'll be Rahm's turn under the Hope-n-Change Bus.

Rahm gives Nan Pelosi an affectionate pat on the bottom......eeeeeeww!

The Media's astonishing hypocricy

Where are the feckless, main-stream media and womens'-rights harpies on this one?

A Saudi judge has ordered a woman should be jailed for a year and receive 100 lashes after she was gang-raped, it was claimed last night.

The 23-year-old woman, who became pregnant after her ordeal, was reportedly assaulted after accepting a lift from a man.

He took her to a house to the east of the city of Jeddah where she was attacked by him and four of his friends throughout the night.

Headline: "Welfare broodmare asked to work in order to receive taxpayer assistance"
Media response: This is an outrage....a crime against humanity!

Headline: "Muslim woman, gang-raped and impregnated, will be jailed and flogged almost to death because she deserved it under Islam"
Media response: Nothing to see here folks, move along.

How many women have to suffer and/or die at the hands of third-world savages in dirty night-shirts who practice the barbaric cult called Islam, before our detestable media recognize that it's NOT one of the world's great religions? When are American liberals going to stop genuflecting at the alter of Islam to try to make them like us, rather than expressing the appropriate outrage when they act like blood-thirsty savages?

Answer: Never, because only the practice of Christianity deserves the mockery and outrage of liberals. It's the chosen religion of America and to liberals, America is evil because it's Christian.

It's Ann Coulter Thursday!

Last week Ann's column wasn't that interesting so I skipped it but, she bounces back this week with her assessment of the outlandishly preposterous "porkulus" bill. She rightly points out that this monstrosity represents, as liberal democrat Pat Cadell observed, the most corrupt and naked power grab by any executive branch in recorded history.

Hysterical eco-religionists aren't just stupid idiots.....they're also third-degree murderers

The stupid religion of unhinged leftists known as modern environmentalism, though pointlessly inconvenient and costly, rarely caused personal harm to the rest of us.....until now.....

ANGRY residents last night accused local authorities of contributing to the bushfire toll by failing to let residents chop down trees and clear up bushland that posed a fire risk.

During question time at a packed community meeting in Arthurs Creek on Melbourne's northern fringe, Warwick Spooner — whose mother Marilyn and brother Damien perished along with their home in the Strathewen blaze — criticised the Nillumbik council for the limitations it placed on residents wanting the council's help or permission to clean up around their properties in preparation for the bushfire season. "We've lost two people in my family because you dickheads won't cut trees down," he said.

"We wanted trees cut down on the side of the road … and you can't even cut the grass for God's sake."

Secretly, some environmentalists are cheering the deaths of these people as proof that humans are parasites on Mother Earth and deserve whatever happens to them for the sin of existing.

The residents of the California hills should take note because that state's eco-religionists won't allow them to clear brush around their houses either, for it might disturb the habitat of some rare, speckled newt.

The morons who made these rules should feel lucky they didn't get strung up in the town square for their role in these deaths. As it is, let's hope they lose their jobs before they can harm any more people.

The Second Coming of Christ.....if you're a liberal retard

I heard this on the radio this morning and have been looking for the clip all day. Finally I found it over at Hotair. You might think about grabbing a bucket first though.....

This idiot represents your basic Obama voter.....stupid, helpless, dependent, underachieving, did I mention stupid? How big of a loser do you have to be to still be at McDonald's for four and a half years, if you don't like it there? If this cretin would stop breathing through his mouth, wear a grown-up shirt with buttons, lose the douche baseball cap, and apply himself a little bit, he could probably have finished the management program that McDonald's offers by now. I think it's typical of the expectations of Obama voters that The Messiah will show up with jobs and welfare checks for everybody like black Santa or something.

Based on this guy's resentment toward a society that he feels has left him behind, his expectation of endless government support, and his ability to blame everybody else for his crap life, I would say that he's most likely a displaced Katrina refugee.

The republicans have no one to blame but themselves

Over at Conservative Grapevine, John has a link to GatewayPundit featuring a post highlighting this startling prediction from the CBO...

The Congressional Budget Office predicted that the current economic recession will end in the second half of 2009 without the trillion dollar stimulus.

Any economist not on Obama's payroll will attest to the fact that recessions and depressions resolve themselves eventually, without massive government intervention. And The One knows that the 51% of Americans who were dumb enough to vote for him, also are too dumb to know that the government cannot spend the country out of a recession. (It's no coincidence that the Americans who are in favor of all this government spending are the same Americans who comprise the loafing class, also known as hand-out voters) We will eventually pull out of the recession as soon as all the out-of-whack markets correct themselves. And Obama will take full credit for the rebound even though the porkulus package had nothing to do with it. And millions more witless Americans, "educated" in dreadful government indoctrination centers and encouraged by the treacherous, feckless media, will believe that their savior Obama delivered them from the darkness.

With this stimulus bill, Obama, the democrats, and the media are driving the country as fast as they can before we wake up, toward a socialist-style government with themselves firmly in charge for the indefinite future.

The funny thing is the republicans have no one to blame but themselves for going along with Bush when he spent money like a drunken sailor. They talk the small government, balanced-budget rhetoric now, but where what that talk back when Bush was signing the highway bill with over 400 earmarks? They deserve to be in exile for the forseeable future. It's just sad that the country has to pay the price for their failures.

Alex Rodriguez is a cheat, but so what? So is our Treasury Secretary

This is the sad state of Major League Baseball.....

NEW YORK (AP) - Alex Rodriguez admitted Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs from 2001-03, saying he did so because of the pressures of being baseball's highest-paid player.

"When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure. I felt like I had all the weight of the world on top of me and I needed to perform, and perform at a high level every day," the New York Yankees star said in an interview with ESPN that was broadcast Monday shortly after it was recorded.

A-Rod was just doing what everybody else does who wants to get ahead. Obama hires tax-cheats left and right and nobody seems to care. But let a baseball player cheat in his profession, and you'd think the world was ending.

The world's not ending, but major league baseball might soon become a second teir sport. As players juiced their games, the owners looked the other way because big performances puts asses in the seats, the players' union warned players about drug testing, and advertizers liked the big money that comes with big performances. Everybody knew it was going on but nobody wanted to kill the goose that layed the golden eggs for everybody. It seems that the record books for the last 15 years or so may have to be thrown out in order to preserve the integrity of the game. Look at the super-stars that we idolized: Sosa, McGwire, Palmiero, Bonds, Clemens, Petit, now Rodriguez. The only clean star left pretty much is Jeter. I wonder when he'll fall too. The message that people are getting is that it's perfectly OK to cheat, that is unless you get caught. Baseball players and talented politicians have learned that cheating is how you win, and as long as you have something to offer, people will shrug and look the other way.

As a lifelong baseball fan, it makes me not even interested in watching games any more. I'll bet I didn't watch 5 games last year. Baseball in America had better watch out, or it'll end up like pro cycling in Europe. Nobody cares.

"Deranged Kook" is more than a description of environmentalists, it's a diagnosis

The feckless media are reporting on a phenomenon called "climate-change delusion". I guess it's the new popular syndrome from which stupid environmentalists suffer. Here's the evidence....

-an anxious, depressed 17-year-old boy was admitted to the psychiatric unit at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne. He was refusing to drink water. Worried about drought related to climate change, the young man was convinced that if he drank, millions of people would die.

-children who are having nightmares about global-warming-related natural disasters

-anxiety in patients because they've been told that climate change is expected to create about 200 million environmental refugees by 2050

Anybody who believes in man-made global warming is already a deranged psychopath and should be medicated and not allowed out of doors. Treacherous politicians know that a dumbed down, celebrity-obsessed populace is easily managed with fear, followed by the promise of safety, and the media are complicit in this deception. The whole cult of environmentalism hinges on this dynamic of fear and redemption. Thus the doctors' convenient solution....

In the long term, we may also derive some psychological benefit from banding together with other citizens to mitigate the effects of global warming.

The modern eco-religionists are phenomenally weak minded and snake charmers like Al Gore easily lead them around by scaring them with tales of impending horror from a menace that is wholly imaginary.

A rubber room at the laughing factory----a deserving fate of your garden-variety environmentalist.

Why the Academy Awards don't matter

I used to enjoy watching the Academy Awards show because there was actual competition between actually good movies for best picture, actor, etc. Now, the whole process had devolved into a deranged orgy of political correctness and irritating grandstanding by vapid, half-witted actors who think people other than Entertainment Tonight hosts care what they think about anything.

This year, predictably, an ingratiating, fawning account of slain San Francisco gay-rights advocate Harvey Milk, got 8 nominations. It's not because it was a particularly good movie, it's because it's a movie about a favorite Hollywood soapbox topic, homosexuality, and stars Hollywood's most vocal and annoyingly left personality, Sean Penn. If they had time, Sean Penn would have painted his face black and made an ingratiating, fawning account of a young, inexperienced, Chicago rabble-rouser who got himself installed into the presidency by the cult-like media....and that would have gotten 8 nominations.

So, if you watch the Oscars later this month, enjoy poking fun of what actresses wear on the red carpet but, don't believe that they are picking the best movies of last year. They're picking the most politically correct ones.

The Mother of All Crap Sandwiches

Only two weeks into his administration, and The One allowed two dispicable cretins, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, to dictate the components of his $820Billion stimulus package...then stupidly tried to defend it even though only about 10% will actually create jobs. The rest is nothing but political payoffs, re-election spending, and politically correct nonsense. Combine this waste of money with the idiotic TARP billions, which did nothing to help the economy, and we are way over a trillion dollars in money the government doesn't have. They just printed it as they went along. In two years when mid-term elections roll around, watch the democrats blame Bush for the continuing job losses, then Obama will demand Americans pony up another trillion or so of stumulus money. Once you feed the government pig, it never decreases it's demand for more, year in and year out.

I hope you're hungry America, because this is what's for dinner.

The Obesity Police

We Americans can gaze across the pond and see what's around the corner for us, as the once-Great Britain plunges headlong into the dark abyss of nanny-State political correctness and tyranny. In order to combat childhood obesity do-gooders in positions of power have decided that.....

The Government is set to order manufacturers to shrink the size of chocolate bars and fizzy drinks.

Health Secretary Alan Johnson will tell firms such as Mars, Coca-Cola, Britvic and Nestlé that smaller versions of their products should be available in all garages and corner shops to help stop people piling on weight.

The US is about 10 years behind our mother country when it comes to yeilding our freedoms to smarmy, pencil-necked bureaucrats in government who think they know what's best for us. Mayor Bloomberg is about to regulate the amount of salt in the New York restaurant diet for heaven's sake.

Childhood obesity is about laziness and bad parenting, not portion size of candy bars and fizzy drinks.

Jake Tapper PWN3S Idiot Robert Gibbs

Jake Tapper is the White House correspondant for ABC News and Robert Gibbs is the moron BHO tapped for WH-Press Secretary. Watch this short exchange about administration transparency and then guess how long it'll be before the wheels on Obama's bus go thump, thump, thump yet again.....

This guy is awful, just awful! And if you watch closely when Gibbs asks Tapper if it's pertinent, Jake almost drops an F-bomb on him. This guy is comedy gold Jerry, gold!

I found this clip over on Hotair.

Democrats favor analog porn to digital porn

Believe it or not, there are still people who watch TV using rabbit-ear antennae. And either they are too lazy or too stupid to get the taxpayer-provided converter boxes that have been available for a couple of years. Ever the populists, half-witted democrats yesterday extended the switch until June.....

The House of Representatives Thursday voted to postpone the country's shift from analog to digital TV broadcasts until June 12.

TV stations are scheduled to shut off their analog, over-the-air signals on Feb. 17. Many Democrats contended that millions of consumers were still not prepared for the switch. Older TV sets that aren't equipped or modified to receive digital signals will go dark once the transition occurs.

We've known about this switch for like 3 years. If people haven't prepared yet, they aren't likely to before June. I refuse to believe that democrats are doing this because Luther in his trailer outside Paduka, Kentucky might have to view scrambled porn for a while. What will motivate these loafers to get off their butts and go pick up their free box more than a dark TV?

Maureen Dowd gets one right for a change

NY Times columnist, and unmarryable liberal harpie, Maureen Dowd finally gets an opinion right for a change. Her column today sums up how awful the first two weeks of the Obama administration have been. Here's an exerpt....

Mr. Obama admitted that “ultimately it’s important for this administration to send a message that there aren’t two sets of rules. You know, one for prominent people and one for ordinary folks who have to pay their taxes.”

It took Daschle’s resignation to shake the president out of his arrogant attitude that his charmed circle doesn’t have to abide by the lofty standards he lectured the rest of us about for two years.

It's rare these days when a liberal columnist criticizes The One, but she actually gets this one right.

The Religion of Peace sinks to new depths of depravity

I don't know if this is true but, I can sure believe it....

Islamic terrorists are raping young men in order to drive them into suicide bombings.

The Sun quotes Algerian militant Abu Baçir El Assimi:

"The sexual act on young recruits aged between 16 to 19 was a means to urge them to commit suicide operations."

The paper claims that "intense social stigma and fear of more gay sex attacks leaves Muslims prepared to die."

Rape and homosexual acts are punishable by death under Sharia law.

Here are some practitioners of the Religion of Peace, "recruiting" another suicide bomber.

Boy, that's some great, world religion that Islam!

Nancy Pelosi's dumber than a box of hammers

Here's some insight into the level of intelligence of our elected leaders.

Apparently the number 500million is what ditsy, confused Nancy Pelosi fantasizes about when she estimates the population of the US under the open-borders policies of the Obamessiah, when 200million Mexicans stream across to pilfer our generous welfare programs. As it stands currently, there are only about 300million people total, in the US. How 500million could lose jobs is arithmatic only a deranged liberal can understand.

How did somebody this stupid rise to this level of power? Oh yeah, she's a liberal, and liberalism supercedes miserable stupidity every time.

Snake bait

I'll be mocking these people, one day soon...

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - It's pretty difficult for a 23-foot, 130-pound python to hide.

The orange reticulated python, the world's longest snake species, and a second python, measuring 13 feet, escaped from a terrarium in their owner's home in San Luis Obispo on Sunday night.

Police warned residents that the snakes were large enough to make meals of young children or pets.

But both had been captured by Monday afternoon.

It's only a matter of time before the snake escapes again and eats somebody's child or pet, or even better, strangles and eats it's owners in thier sleep. I'm looking forward to having a field day when that happens. You know I enjoy nothing more than stupid people getting themselves eaten by wild animals. I'd better start writing jokes now.

The Boss.....officially out of ideas

Unable to hide from controversey lately, there seems to be more trouble brewing for The Boss. The first song on his latest album "Outlaw Pete" sounds eerily similar to the KISS song "I Was Made For Lovin' You". I don't know, you be the judge....

First, Bruce has alienated at least half his fans by being openly liberal and unnecessarily hostile to George Bush. Then he railed against Wal-Mart for being a corporate giant but, then released his new album solely through Wal-Mart. Finally, his new album kind of sucks as fans feel it's too pop and formulaic. If the fans end up believing that he stole riffs from KISS, that'll be as deadly to his career as when Rick Springfield donned the Members Only jacket, pushed the sleeves up, and attempted to dance in a video....attempted and failed. I don't think he sold another album after that.

I've never really been a big fan of The Boss but, I was never hostile either. When he started politicizing his music, I quit even being interested.

American culture digs a little deeper

In pursuit of quick, easy fame and fortune, people will do almost anything to create a reality-show personality out of their lives. And sadly, stupid, drooling Americans will watch pretty much anything....

LOS ANGELES – The mother of the world's longest-living octuplets is being deluged with offers for book deals, TV shows and other business proposals, but has not decided what she might do other than care for her children, her newly hired spokeswoman said Monday.

Hundreds of requests have been made since Nadya Suleman gave birth to six boys and two girls a week ago, said Joann Killeen, president of Killeen Furtney Group, a public relations company.

"She's the most sought after mom in the world right now," Killeen said. "Everyone wants to talk to her."

As stupid as a reality show about this brood mare and her litter of babies would be, at least if she cashes in, taxpayers won't involuntarily be on the hook for their upkeep. I don't care how many babies you have as long as you don't ask me to pay for them.

The question on everbody's mind, but that no one is asking, is where is the second parent in this picture? Of course the non-judgemental MSM will celebrate this brave, single mother struggling valiantly to raise her litter of pups, and no questions about the need for a father will be asked. Movies like "Knocked Up" and "Juno" removed the stigma of unwed pregnancy and made single parenthood cool. Furthermore, the lucrative book deals and talk-show appearances that this women gets will encourage more stupid, single women to attempt the same thing.

How sad is the state of American culture when we celebrate and reward a single mom for having 14 children under the age of 7?

What'll they criminalize next?

FLORENCE -- A 35-year employee of the Lauderdale County school system submitted his letter of retirement one day after he was charged with loitering for a sex activity.

Is standing around, waiting for sex a crime? Because we're all pretty much guilty of that.

Hat tip to Fark.
