It's Orgy Time

Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Orgies are the way to ease social tensions, claims US judge: "Challenged about his views on sexual morality, Justice Scalia surprised his audience at Harvard University, telling them: 'I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged."
Let me be the first to observe that aparently Benjamin Franklin has been re-incarnated as a Supreme Court Justice

I wonder if Scalia gets to France much.

Well it's about damn time

With both Brian and Shawn AWOL, it's up to me to pick up the slack around here. First order of business: The Libertarian has assumed control As Michael Savage says there are two types of crooks in this world: Republicans and Democrats. Or as Rollye James calls 'em Republicrats and Demopublicans. However, I'm gonna vote for W. I have to agree with Brian on that one.

Now with that out of the way. I bring you news from Montgomery County. The Smoking Gun has a booking photo of Rosa Parks. I've looked at tons of these photos over the years on TSG. But this is the first one I've ever found where the subject is sitting down. Like the woman said her feet were too tired to get up. So I'm glad to see that The Montgomery County Sheriffs Department respected her request. see for yourself.

Why I Admire Geroge W. Bush

Since a defense was asked for, one is being given. As your cynicism ramps up as you read this, as you remind yourself that he is chimpboy, unfit to lead the Delta House, please keep in mind that this is, in fact sincere. And I do take this particular issue seriously.

In 1979 I was eight years old. During the Thanksgiving holiday of that year, Iranian students, followers of the radical Ayatollah Khomeini stormed the US Embassy and held our people hostage for 444 days. Yes, I know we supported the Shah. Yes, I know the Shah wasn't the nicest guy in the world. These students weren't really concerned with his ties to the US, though. They were more concerned with his ties "to the West."

We did nothing for months, then we threw together Desert One. No need to go on about that. Get this straight - just as the weird looking Canadian embassy on Penn Ave in DeeCee is on Canadian soil, that embassy was on U.S. soil. And we did nothing.

A few years later, Reagan - the man whose reputation alone was enough to bring the hostages home in 1981, pulled out the troops after the barracks bombing in Lebanon. I think you can see where I'm going with this.

Since Thanksgiving, 1979, we've had five presidents - and only one of them has actually decided that enough was enough and that we'd be taking the fight to the terrorists. We have now taken the fight to the terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan, and things are, quite frankly, going about as well as can be expected. And that fight, mind you, is for nothing less then the soul of Western Civilization. The enemy doesn't quibble over COLA raises for civil servants, they believe that the system that employs the civil servants is the handiwork of Zionist Imperialists and therefore have no right to live.

We use laser guided bombs in the hope of avoiding civillian casualties. They shoot fleeing children in the back by the hundreds.

We believe that you should worship whatever you like. They believe that the Jews should be dealt with first, then the rest of the infidels.

We argue whether women should or shouldn't have abortions. They use women as suicide bombers because they draw less attention.

The man does things that fly in the face of realpolitik, yet the cynical eye of the American Left sees in his every action the willful hand of Karl Rove or Dick Cheney. Money for AIDS in Africa? Must be some darker motive at work. Education Reform? Must be out to get the unions.

The idea, the notion, that perhaps he is motivated by the simple themes of Christianity is so alien to the American Left that even after four years, they still don't get it. And that is why they will lose. A majority of Americans believe in goodwill, acts of generosity and simple courage in the face of implacable odds. George W. Bush reflects those values, my values.

The opposition party in this country believes in cynicism, defeatism and France.

Taking My Ball And Going Home
I will no longer be repeating myself ad nauseum. Matter of fact, I won't be repeating a damn thing until after November 3rd. I'm taking the rest of the election off from blogging as, quite frankly, there is nothing left to be said. Every argument is "countered" with the spin from the Worst Campaign Ever. This isn't a debate, this is repition from TAP and the Democratic Underground. If I wanted to know what the Kerry Campaign had to say each day, I'd visit their damn website.
Nothing personal. See you all after the re-election.

Imagine my surprize

Brian is in Dilbert today:

I wonder if he'll give us his autograph

Brian - Wrong on Kerry Assault Rifle

I'm afriad I must correct an assertation made by Brian on Kerry. It turns out Kerry does not own an assault rifle.

The New York Times > Washington > Campaign 2004 > No Assault Rifle for Kerry, After All: "Senator John Kerry's campaign said yesterday that Mr. Kerry did not own a Chinese assault rifle . . .

Mr. Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee, owns two guns, a double-barreled 12-gauge shotgun and the rifle, which Mr. Meehan said Mr. Kerry "keeps as a relic" and had never fired. Mr. Meehan said the gun had no make or model markings [emphases added] on it and that Mr. Kerry "got it from a friend years ago," adding that such rifles were first manufactured in Russia more than 100 years ago and were used by the North Koreans and the Vietcong. "

So not only was Brian wrong on the type of Gun Kerry has. He also failed to mention that John Kerry is in favor of removing identifying marks from wepons.

You should also note that he hasn't fired the rifle. This may be the case. Many collectors don't shoot historical guns they own. I found it interesting that they felt the need to assert it. Much like getting caught with a Playboy and asserting that you read it "for the Articles". All this being said I have a gun that is almost 100 years old and I know all kinds of things about it.

Did you know that John Kerry was in Vietnam?

In another part of the city of 200,000, crowds pulled sacks of rice and beans from trucks in a convoy on its way to a UN warehouse.

Many have had little food since the floods struck a week ago and scuffles broke out in the streets as residents fought over sacks of rice and grabbed food aid from each other's hands.

The BBC's Dan Griffiths in Gonaives says that, at the moment, the UN is all that is stopping the anger exploding into violence. /i>

Anger and violence? Surely over the lack of proper clothing! Every idiot knows that after a devasting series of hurricanes, people need clothing, first and foremost. Get out your old clothes and donate them to your local relief agency.

Do not — I repeat — do not donate water. Those poor people have already been deluged with enough water, I think.
CNN was reporting that people were saying that the only water they had to drink was water people had died in. I haven't heard about Laura Bush doing anything other than saying that stem cell research won't benefit anyone in our lifetime, so we might as well stop. I haven't heard about anyone in the GOP doing anything for the people of Haiti. Where's the compassion? And let's not forget those kittens!
