Pussification of America Meets Opposiiton

Good for them!

Florida State to sue NCAA over mascot-nickname rule

The NCAA can forget about Florida State University changing its "Seminoles" nickname any time soon.

Stung by an NCAA decision Friday to ban schools using Native American names and symbols from hosting championship events, Florida State President T.K. Wetherell said he will sue the organization for an "outrageous and insulting" decision.

"This university will forever be associated with the "unconquered" spirit of the Seminole Tribe of Florida," said Wetherell, who played football for the Seminoles 40 years ago.

The NCAA decided to ban the use of American Indian mascots by sports teams during its postseason tournaments, but will not prohibit them otherwise. Nicknames or mascots deemed "hostile or abusive" would not be allowed on team uniforms or other clothing beginning with any NCAA tournament after Feb. 1. Those schools also would not be allowed to host championship events.

Friday's decision comes after the Seminole Tribe of Florida's governing council unanimously approved in mid-June a resolution in support of Florida State's "Seminoles" nickname.

"It is unconscionable that the Seminole Tribe of Florida has been ignored," Wetherell said in a four-paragraph statement released by the university.

"That the NCAA would now label our close bond with the Seminole Tribe of Florida as culturally 'hostile and abusive' is both outrageous and insulting," Wetherell said. "I intend to pursue all legal avenues to ensure that this unacceptable decision is overturned."

Get Over It and Get Along

Japanese Observe Hiroshima's Anniversary

HIROSHIMA, Japan (AP) - Hiroshima marked the 60th anniversary Saturday of the first atomic bomb attack with prayers and water for the dead and a call by the city's mayor for nuclear powers to abandon their arsenals and stop "jeopardizing human survival."

At 8:15 a.m., the instant of the blast, the city's trolleys stopped and more than 55,000 people assembled at Peace Memorial Park observed a moment of silence that was broken only by the ringing of a bronze bell.

A flock of doves was released into the sky. Then wreaths and ladles of water - symbolizing the suffering of those who died in the atomic inferno - were offered at a simple, arch-shaped stone monument at the center of the park.

Outside the nearby A-Bomb Dome, one of the few buildings left standing after the blast, peace activists held a die-in to commemorate the bombing that turned life to death for more than 140,000 and forever changed the face of war.

Oh geez...get over it already. We won, you lost and in a BIG way.

You want to help stop this from happening again?! Then don't start a war morons....

Still Tweaking the Site

I think that I've gotten the IE6 bug worked out thanks to the template designer Eric. Now if I can get the banner to line up with the left- and right-side menus....

Also.....those of you that continue to be the slave of Microsoft's Internet Explorer will now be able to view the site correctly.

Oh and check out the comments box: not only did I finally get the text in the box to move a little to the left, I've also integrated the new banner that is up top.

Pretty cool if I say so....

Cutting Edge Journalism

Just when you thought that the Barking Moonbat Brigade™ couldn't make themselves any more useless, along comes The New York Times to up the ante:



The NEW YORK TIMES is looking into the adoption records of the children of Supreme Court Nominee John G. Roberts, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The TIMES has investigative reporter Glen Justice hot on the case to investigate the status of adoption records of Judge Roberts’ two young children, Josie age 5 and Jack age 4, a top source reveals.

Judge Roberts and his wife Jane adopted the children when they each were infants.

Both children were adopted from Latin America.

A TIMES insider claims the look into the adoption papers are part of the paper's "standard background check."

Bill Borders, NYT senior editor, explains: "Our reporters made initial inquiries about the adoptions, as they did about many other aspects of his background. They did so with great care, understanding the sensitivity of the issue."

This is seriously the type of stuff that explains why lions eat their young.....

60 Years Later The Whining is Still Loud

Hiroshima, 60 Years Later
From radiation studies to restored photos to the rebuilding of Hiroshima, the web captures the bomb's lasting impact on Hiroshima today

After the atomic bomb was droppped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, historians and survivors, alike, have collected information on the bomb's destruction and future impact. The modern city of Hiroshima now honors its victims with museums, annual ceremonies and peace declarations. To learn about Hiroshima's recovery and read eyewitness accounts from survivors, check out these sites.

I saw this cover a few days ago while standing in line to purchase my Ortega Corn Taco Shells.

My first thought was Oh jeez....more whining about this. I thought about it for a few more seconds and confirmed my initial thought - it was whining about it.

I do feel for the woman on the cover having lost her entire family in the fireball that consumed Hiroshima, but that's why they call it WAR. What were we supposed to do - use really, really harsh language!?!

Bluff Called

Bush Appoints Bolton to U.N. Job

WASHINGTON — President Bush bypassed Congress Monday and appointed John Bolton to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

"This post is too important to leave vacant any longer, especially during a war and a vital debate about U.N. reform. So today I've used my constitutional authority to appoint John Bolton to serve as America's ambassador to the United Nations," Bush said, with Bolton at his side, during an announcement in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.

"I am sending John to the U.N. with my complete confidence ... His mission now is to speak for me on critical issues facing the international community. And he'll make it clear that America values the potential of the United Nations to be a source of hope and dignity and peace," Bush said.

What's funny about this is that for all the stalling, all the rhetoric from the Dems, all the screeching about what a 'monster' he is that President Bush waited only one hour after the Congressional recess started to exercise his authority to name Bolton to the post of Ambassador to the United Nations.

The Dems excercised their 'powers' to block the confirmation of John Bolton and the President upped the ante.

Message to the Dems: Don't bluff unless you're ready to have your hand called...
