Here's something from LGF that made me just shake-my-head:

The European Union has solved Europe's problem with Islamic terrorism and jihad.

By banning the words. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)

The European Union has drawn up guidelines advising government spokesmen to refrain from linking Islam and terrorism in their statements.

Brussels officials have confirmed the existence of a classified handbook which offers "non-offensive" phrases to use when announcing anti-terrorist operations or dealing with terrorist attacks.

Banned terms are said to include "jihad", "Islamic" or "fundamentalist".

The word "jihad" is to be avoided altogether, according to some sources, because for Muslims the word can mean a personal struggle to live a moral life.

One alternative, suggested publicly last year, is for the term “Islamic terrorism” to be replaced by "terrorists who abusively invoke Islam".

An EU official said that the secret guidebook, or, "common lexicon", is aimed at preventing the distortion of the Muslim faith and the alienation of Muslims in Europe.

Last free human being out of Europe, please turn off the lights.

Yes indeed, the über-intelligent peoples of the Old World have solved one of the greatest problems to face mankind in the 20th and 21st centuries: pretending that not speaking the words that aptly describe the threat will make said threat go away.

It's kind of like in the Harry Potter series of books where the wizarding community will refer to the greatest threat to them as 'He Who Will Not Be Named' instead of using his real name Voldemort.

And as for my usage of 'SWWNBN' instead of the proper name Cindy Sheehan, that's because she doesn't deserve to have a proper name used when discussing her psycho-babble.

Lovely.....using the ostrich technique to hide from danger. The only thing missing is plugging our ears and screaming 'Lah-Lah-Lah-Lah'.....

Hey Alec....

If you're really interested in helping people, send some of that love my way.

I promise: if you help pay for the rest of my education, I promise I won't enlist in the military.

Honestly - while I most probably will not agree with Mr. Baldwin on political issues, I do admire his acting and wouldn't have a problem accepting his financial assistance. Even better: he could help out my daughter in preparing for college.

Cancer Returns

Recently, White House spokesman Tony Snow announced that the cancer that he had beaten had returned.

Regardless of what you think of Tony and his work for the White House, this just plain sucks ass.

Click here and send Tony a supportive message; the e-mail link is in the upper right-hand corner that will fire up your preferred e-mail system.

(H/T to Michelle Malkin for jogging my memory about this today.)

It's been a while (almost six weeks) since I posted about the 'Lovely Times' that I and my family were experiencing. I thought I'd post an update to it to let everyone know how we're doing.

Final Exams

(via PDA)

Yes indeed, it's the end of he Winter 2007 quarter which means it's time for Final Exams!!!

(cue 'evil' music)

(okay...enough 'evil' music)

Since I'm taking three classes, I have three final exams; oe this afternoon (engineering), Physics final on Thursday, and a History final on Friday.

The Physics final is just turning in my research paper on spacecraft propulsion systems and the History final will be analysis of several passages from the readings; both will be easy -- the physics paper willbe fun writing and history will be easy too.

However, the engineering final today is up in the air. To be honest, it hasn't been an interesting subject & I cannot say that I learned much (if anything) of the subject material.....we'll have to wait and see.

UPDATE: I'm all done!!

Physics was tiresome...I was up all all Wednesday night.

History was easy, but drawn out. (Just got out of that exam.)

And Engineering turned out to be a Greek tragedy.

San Diego Protest Warriors in Action

We've come up on the four-year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq and what would an anniversary be without the barking moonbats of San Diego coming out of their tin-foil protected homes to protest.

Of course they did and San Diego Protest Warriors were there to point out their foolishness.

Go check it out and especially the photos!!

Sadly, I wasn't able to participate due to preparing for final exams this week and other family commitments that I couldn't blow off. (Actually, I was feeling like crap and my daughter was coming down with some new variant of the 'creeping crud' she picked up at school.)

Boo-Yah from 1986

Somebody said that carrier pilots were the best in the world, and they must be or there wouldn't be any of them left alive.

Ernie Pyle

And here's why....

About Me

Who is Mikey?
Mikey playing with digital camera

Mikey is a forty-something U.S. Navy veteran that is currently taking a break from being a full-time student at UC San Diego studying electrical engineering.

He's also a husband, a father, a former Independent/Democrat and is currently dealing with dialysis and getting on the national kidney transplant list.

Help Mikey by not being part of the problem and instead, be part of the solution so that he doesn't have to comment on your sorry actions.
