Palestinian Airlines?

Something that Charles at LGF took notice of:

Palestinians Want Airplanes

Here’s yet another sob story about the Palestinians’ need for an airport: Gaza’s ghost airport awaits better days.

Construction began on the airport after the 1993 Oslo accords were signed in a bid to restore Middle East peace.

The airport functioned primarily as a hub for Arafat when he took trips to other countries.

But when the Israelis destroyed the airport, “all our dreams were stopped cold. We had projected that by 2005 we’d have flights to Paris, Frankfurt and New York,” Gharib said.

Palestinians flying airplanes into New York. Hmm. Why does that not give me a warm, cozy feeling?

Palestinians Party on September 11.

Would you like suicide-belt or non suicide-belt seating...?

Counter-Protest at Walter Reed

By way of meatsphere friend Da Goddess comes some good news about those f*cknuggets from Code Pink that are protesting outside of Walter Reed Hospital in DC - they're being DC Freeps Take Back Walter Reed.

I'm not too keen on that label - Freepers. I'd prefer to call these folks AMERICANS.

And as for these protesting anti-war lemmings, they're in for a world of anguish should they even THINK about pulling this crap at Balboa Hospital. Considering that San Diego is a heavy military town, I don't know if these numbskulls have the cajones to do something like this, especially considering how SDPW has shut them down at almost every event in the last year.

ADDENDUM: Michelle Malkin points to someone else who was there at Walter Reed to cover the events:

Walter Reed

I didn't manage to catch it with my camera, but about 9 o'clock, a big white bus full of soldiers back from an outing pulled in. The look on their faces and the smiles they gave us was fantastic. In fact, all evening long I was shocked by how many people were honking and giving a thumbs up to us, and another finger to the Code Pink people.

Sci Fi Friday Once Again!

The weird things you learn about a favorite show when you're digging for spoilers:

Battlestar Galactica (2003)

Musical score

The score for the series was created by composer Bear McCreary, generally following the template set by Gibbs for the miniseries but adding a great number of Western influences. It includes a number of vocal pieces, including songs in Gaelic and Latin as well as a spoof Italian operatic piece entitled "Battlestar Operatica," which includes the lyrics:

Woe upon your Cylon heart
There's a toaster in your head
And it wears high heels
Number Six calls to you
The Cylon Detector beckons
Your girlfriend is a toaster
By my (mostly fruitless) search for spoilers, you might be able to discern that I'm really, really, REALLY enjoying the new Battlestar Galactica. All week long me, my wife, and my daughter wait eagerly for Friday night to roll around and not because we go out. Oh no - we plop down on the sofa and enjoy three hours of pure geekiness.

You're mileage may vary. Have a great 'geek' Friday!

Dissection of a Moonbat

Here's a comment that I spotted over at San Diego IMC that (for the moment) hasn't been deleted. It's from one of those pathetic posts about how the Minutemen must be shut down so that illegal migrants....undocumented migrants....aliens can keep swarming across the border.

We call on people everywhere to converge on the San Diego/Tijuana region and the Mexicali/Calexico region of the Mexico/US border in order to stop the vigilante operation being planned there by the Friends of the Border Patrol, beginning on September 16th. We also call on those who cannot travel to these areas to organize solidarity actions in their home towns rejecting the Minutemen, Borders and the racist ideologies that Borders are built on.

Our goal for Sep. 16th-18th is to take action and directly shut down the Minutemen operations.

What I found interesting was that someone - somehow - managed to get a comment past the Nazi-esque censors about the incesent whining about the Minutemen:

Plague Puppet

Well, it would seem that the 'mild infection' that I was diagnosed with last Friday has an official name: acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis (AHC).

The doctor I saw this afternoon about it called it a 'Three Doctor Disease':

  • You initially go see your doctor about the problem. They prescribe something and you go home.

  • The problem doesn't go away quickly so you go see another doctor. They prescribe more medication to deal with the problem and send you home.

  • When the problem becomes acute, you go back to the doctor for the third time and they end up telling you that you'll just have to suffer through it since there isn't anything they can do about it.
Great....my left eye looks like someone jammed a cat into it (maybe I'll put up a photo or two...maybe later), it hurts like a SOB, and there's not a damn thing they can do about it.

The bonus is that I'm starting to feel the same symptoms in my right eye; the opthamologist says that the AHC virus will spread to the other eye no matter what I do. I'll just have to ride the storm out.

The one 'positive' thing about this is that I can now tease my kid with my left hand (the one that constantly rubs the infected eye) with what I'm calling 'Pink-Eye the Plague Puppet'.

The suck thing is that when the right eye gets acute, that my vision will be blurred - possibly enough that I'll have to have someone drive me places. The last thing I need is to wrap my truck around a phone pole cause I didn't see the darn thing....

A Republican in Hollywood

Someone with the guts to 'out' themselves up in Hollyweird.

By way of California Conservative:

Help! I`m A Hollywood Republican!

Me, I’m a Republican. A conservative Republican. I believe passionately in free market capitalism. I believe in the Second Amendment, i.e., the right to bear arms (I even own several guns and go to the shooting range with friends from shul several times a month). I despise communism and fascism, and I believe there is a special place in hell for Islamic totalitarians and their Western apologists — probably 99.9 percent of Hollywood people.

Let’s be clear about one thing. Hollywood people are glamorous. But that’s about it. They are ill informed about jihad. They are ill informed about Islam. They are ill informed about Israel, the PA, Iraq, Afghanistan. They are ill informed about U.S. history, the Constitution, etc. The truth is, the movie people I’ve met are ignorant about most everything — save the weekend grosses of the top ten films. That they know like human computers.

Bravo Robert!

It's nice to see someone that isn't afraid to be themselves - especially in a 'hostile' environment like Hollywood although I'm thinking that really soon you'll be subjected to the treatment that 'unpossessed' people in 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'....sort of like Donald Sutherland pictured here.

Good luck with not being turned into a pod person.

Wishful Thinking is Deadly

I'm not a big fan of his music (that I'm aware of anyway) but I do like his style when talking straight:

Pat Boone shreds Cindy 'peaceniks'

"This lady and the groups that have been demonstrating in front of the president's ranch in Crawford and following him around are the very same people that were the dropout, turn-on, anti-war peace activists back [in the Vietnam War era]," Boone said. "They still have this crazy notion that by just being peaceful and maybe toking up or something like that – it's like an ostrich with its head in the sand – maybe the danger and the bad guys will go away and leave you alone, which is not gonna happen."

The original "American Idol," who sold more records than any other pop artist in the 1950s except Elvis Presley, said no one likes war, and he wishes it were not the answer.

"But, look," he said, "when [terrorists] destroy the World Trade Center right in front of your eyes in Manhattan and you know they're going to do the same and worse things, to just sit back and say 'Oh, let's try not to make 'em mad at us, let's don't rock the boat, let's just say peace is the answer, we love you, we love you' ... we're just sitting ducks. More World Trade Centers, more 9-11s are gonna happen unless we try to take the battle to them on their turf instead of letting 'em bring it to us on ours."

He's got a point: sitting around hoping that you don't get your ass kicked is just an invitaiton to get it kicked.

This used to happen to me in high school; I'd really stay out of the way of the rednecks (the beligerent ones) and they'd come looking for me since I (at the time) wasn't really big and wasn't very good at handling confrontations like that.

I don't know exactly who said it - it might be some obscure Roman saying - but it's applicable here:

If you want peace, prepare for war.
The more accurate quote is here:
Let him who desires peace prepare for war.
Flavius Vegetius Renatus
(~375 AD)
In a perfect world, counting on the other guy to be nice *might* work, but we do not live in perfect world. Being prepared to kick the shit out of someone or some nation works. Ever wonder why no one until recently has attempted to attack the United States? They haven't because we've got the world's more sophisticated military and are quite prepared to deploy and use it.

Pat has it right - wishful thinking will get your ass kicked and it will contribute in a fashion on the next possible terrorist attack.

Say What? Yelling at Wounded Soldiers

This is fucked up:

Anti-War Protests Target Wounded at Army Hospital

Washington (CNSNews.com) - The Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., the current home of hundreds of wounded veterans from the war in Iraq, has been the target of weekly anti-war demonstrations since March. The protesters hold signs that read "Maimed for Lies" and "Enlist here and die for Halliburton."

The anti-war demonstrators, who obtain their protest permits from the Washington, D.C., police department, position themselves directly in front of the main entrance to the Army Medical Center, which is located in northwest D.C., about five miles from the White House. Among the props used by the protesters are mock caskets, lined up on the sidewalk to represent the death toll in Iraq. See Video

Code Pink Women for Peace, one of the groups backing anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan's vigil outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford Texas, organizes the protests at Walter Reed as well.

Some conservative supporters of the war call the protests, which have been ignored by the establishment media, "shameless" and have taken to conducting counter-demonstrations at Walter Reed. "[The anti-war protesters] should not be demonstrating at a hospital. A hospital is not a suitable location for an anti-war demonstration," said Bill Floyd of the D.C. chapter of FreeRepublic.com, who stood across the street from the anti-war demonstrators on Aug. 19.

"I believe they are tormenting our wounded soldiers and they should just leave them alone," Floyd added.

Wonderful people - protesting at the one place where they might gain support. Instead, this segment of Jerry's Kids are showing - one again - just how moronic the anti-war/anti-Bush/anti-using-your-freaking-brain crowd really is.

It's lke the dopes that protest outside of recruiting centers; like yelling at the sky caus eit rains.

IMO, here's the place where rogue old guys should run over something in their pick-up trucks....

She's Gone Plaid!

Cindy Sheehan reveals a little bit more of herself.

By way of John Hawkins at Right Wing News:

Cindy: Terrorists 'freedom fighters'

...But now that we have decimated the country, the borders are open, freedom fighters from other countries are going in, and they [American troops] have created more terrorism by going to an Islamic country, devastating the country and killing innocent people in that country.

Freedom fighters?


I guess we can now say that Cindy supports acts like this? Or maybe this?

Congratulations Ms. Sheehan - you've now officially become a public moron. You've exceeded the design specifications on human absurdity and are screaming along at Ludacris Speed. And you're also headed straight for that brick wall we like to call REALITY where you'll soon become a crimson stain.

It is no wonder that you've become a 'tool' of the anti-war psychos - you're just not smart enough to recognize it was happening.

I am sorry that you've lost your son, but realize that he CHOSE to enlist and then CHOSE again to re-enlist. He knew what he was doing whereas you do not.

Pack it in Ms. Sheehan - go home and grieve for your son, but do not lecture the rest of America on what YOU think is happening around the world and expect us to lap it up.

We've all got opinions on all sorts of things in our world but you do not have the corner market on grief, misery, and dispair - EVERYONE has it in their lives. Share it in hopes of overcoming it? Sure - go right ahead. That doesn't mean that we're going to follow your cue on how to act/react to America being under siege.

You do your son a dishonor by using him like a tool that you've become.

OBT Has Arrived

Good news! An acquaintance of mine - Old Buick Tanker - that helped adjust the attitudes of those anti-war folks at Activist San Diego has now entered the blogsphere.

Between Yogimus the Hugarian Barbarian, myself, and OBT we managed to cause the forums at ASD to be shutdown; I guess they got tired of having the truth pushed in their faces and 'took their ball and went home'.

OBT - welcome to the wonderful world of blogging and fighting the good fight!!

UPDATE: Here is an example of the mischeif that happened at ASD. I'm kind of surprised that they haven't taken it down yet...

Team America: F*ck Yeah!

My wife bought me my own personal copy of Team America: World Police; it's still funny as hell!!

If you haven't seen it yet, rent the DVD and invite some friends over - just make sure that they're not left-of-center or if they are, make sure they can laugh at themselve to some extent.

Debbie Shlussel (a new find on my part) posted about the movie and how it annoyed a lot of Hollywood last fall.

Stone and Parker get it right. While they make fun of the government and how it conducts the War on Terror, their message is clear:  Regardless of our faults,  the terrorists are real bad guys, not us.  That's something Hollywood and the left don't get. Stone and Parker have a field day with the self-hatred amongst that slice of so-called Americans.

"I'm sick of hearing actors talk about s--t they don't know about," Stone says. "And we've been on the 'bash Michael Moore' bandwagon for a long time." “It’s fine and good for everyone to hate us (Americans) and think we’re (jerks), but there is a big difference between (jerks) and (psychos)” like Osama Bin Laden, Parker said.

Finally somebody’s teaching Hollywood the difference.

What I liked about her post was that apparently Sean Penn was quite put out about his portrayal in the movie:

Inane Relevance

Oh good - it's official: Iraq is now exactly like Vietnam since Joan Baez was released from her cryo-storage unit:

Folk Singer Supports Anti-War Protesters

CRAWFORD, Texas -- Joan Baez was against the Vietnam War and she showed it _ appearing at marches, once even blocking the entrance of a military induction center.

The folk singer is against the Iraq war, too, and she showed her support Sunday to protesters camping out near President Bush's ranch.

Baez took to the stage for about 500 people on an acre lot offered by a landowner who opposes the war, performing such classic peace anthems as "Song of Peace," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot."

Not far way is the camp started by Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq.

"In the first march I went to (opposing Vietnam) there were 10 of us. This is huge," Baez told the relatives of fallen soldiers before performing just up the road from the ranch.

For Baez, an anti-war movement was inevitable.

"It was the final tear for the overflow and you can't stop running water," she said. "Cindy's was the final tear."

It's nice to see that all of the old 'players' are slowly realizing that they can make a comeback after 30+ years by equating Iraq to Vietnam.

I hate to break it to you three-toed sloths, but I feel I have to: Iraq is Iraq and Vietnam is Vietnam.

You're attempts to equate the two are like comparing Edsels and the Concord SST.

Jim Gilchrist for Congress

How here is someone that will make all participants earn their votes: Jim Gilchrist for Congress

Even though it is up in Orange County (the 48th Congressional district), I'll help this man how ever I can.

And you can believe that both the Democratic and Republican candidates he will be facing will not be able to ignore or blow off the issue of illegal immgration aliens. Not if they want to be taken seriously....

Lovely 'Freedom Fighters', huh?

Anyone want to back the *cough* 'freedom fighters' in Iraq now??

By way of Chester (through Black Five) comes this 'window into the soul' of the Iraqi 'insurgency':

"You bastards. This is Jihad? You call this Jihad? "

This MEMRI report, of an interrogation of a captured terrorist by an Iraqi security member, is a must read (ht: Austin Bay). Not only does the terrorist admit to assassinating Muhammed Al Bakr, but he details campaigns of targeted rape, the fact that the Fallujah assault scattered his coworkers, the fact that he was only paid $400, the fact that Ansar al Islam set up house quite comfortably in Halabja during the time of Saddam.

Interrogator: "Did you kidnap women?"

Abed: "Yes."

Interrogator: "There were operations of kidnapping and rape, carried out by the squad you belong to?"

Abed: "Yes."

Interrogator: "Tell me how many rape and kidnapping operations were carried out. My information says that the kidnapped women were university students or daughters of famous people. You raped them and got money for it, and if they were not slaughtered afterwards.... Did this really happen?"

Abed: "Yes, it did."

Interrogator: "Who would carry out these operations?"

Abed: "Abu Sajjad."

Interrogator: "Your superior?"

Abed: "Yes."


Interrogator: "Is this Jihad – raping women? Is this Jihad?"

Abed: "It is because they collaborated with the Americans."

Interrogator: "That's why they were raped?"

Abed: "Yes."

Interrogator: "A student who is simply going to her university is kidnapped, raped, and then slaughtered?! This was an American collaborator?!"

Gee, and the U.S. gets smacked around for making a prisoners slightly cold in a room whereas these pieces of sh*t are lauded as freedom fighters??

Read the rest if you have the stomach for it.
