Confirmation for SDPW

The Most Critical Battlefield

THE FOLLOWING COMMENT was left by a Marine serving in Iraq (IP address confirmed) in the "Operation FREE BALBOA" post:

Thanks for doing this. The battlefield this weekend will be on the homefront. The only thing that truly concerns me is that the seditionist groups will succeed in causing the American people to lose their will and the enemy will win politically the victory we have denied them militarily.

Let there be no mistake: we are winning here. Morale is outstanding and we are successfully taking the fight to the enemy. You will see a successful referendum in less than 3 weeks and a successfull election in less than 3 months. I see the positive resuts of our actions everyday. The MSM ignores or denigrates almost every piece of positive news, exaggerates every negative and makes the enemy and his actions out to be more than they are.

They absolutely cannot defeat us militarily and have no strategic vision except the destruction of all who oppose them. A strategy based on such a negative is doomed to fail, unless we cut and run. That is the enemy's only chance to win. The biggest threat we face is a determined enemy who will not quit because, like the Vietnamese they see the possibility of victory because of a perceived willingness to quit at home.

SWWNBN's Honest Look

Something I got in my e-mail INBOX this morning:

What is most interesting to me is that the press gives this little bunch of people who are protesting with Cindy so much air time without discussing Cindy's background.

This is a case of more press bias. It has been pointed out on just a couple of media outlets that Cindy divorced her first husband and left her son with him to be raised while she became a political activist for the Democratic Party.

She had very little to do with her son in his growing years.

She remarried. The 1st husband remarried.

The original father raised the son with his new wife. They miss their son and mourn the loss of his life. They have stated that they are very proud of their son and that they agree with the stance of America in Iraq and on terror. They said that their son was eager to serve and to go fight the terrorists in Iraq. He volunteered.

How many news stations carried their interview? Not many.

So the son dies in Iraq and then Cindy shows up to make a stink. She gets an audience with Bush. That was not enough. She goes to Crawford and demands another audience. How many news stations carry the ongoing saga of Cindy? Practically all of them.

Cindy didn't care about her son. She let another woman raise him. Cindy doesn't care about the other soldiers in Iraq. Cindy cares about her liberal, feminist agenda and about using the death of her son to lobby against Republicans and Bush. And the press is helping her. Why?

Then a few days ago, Cindy's 2nd husband filed for a divorce from Cindy. Cindy sounds like a feminist opportunist who did not have the sense of responsibility to even raise her own son. It looks like her 2nd husband is fed up with Cindy.

We middle Americans should be fed up with Cindy also. We should be fed up with the press. They manipulate us into their "group think" and into the responses that they want on their polls.

To be honest, I'm sick & tired of hearing about this 'wounded mother' and her whining.

Assuming that the facts pointed out above are true, SWWNBN has about as much credibility & claim to her *cough* grief as Michael Newdow does in his pursuit of 'saving his daughter' from the Pledge of Allegiance and it's insidious two words that make him tighten up his sphincter.

Unless there's something that could be deemed 'launching a Butt Monkey' in the news about SWWNBN, this will be the last I chat about her and her zero percent validity in current events.

** Launching a Butt Monkey is a phrase that I heard Laura Ingraham use on her show recently. It refers to someone saying something so preposterous that you'd expect it to be said publically about as much as you'd expect monkeys to fly out of your butt. It's so apt for her that I'm creating a new category called 'Launching Butt Monkeys'.

Confirmed but Not Completely

Judiciary Panel Approves Roberts

WASHINGTON — The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 13-5 Thursday to confirm John Roberts to be the 17th chief justice of the United States Supreme Court. The full Senate will vote on the nomination on Monday.

Roberts won the support of all 10 Republicans on the committee and three Democrats — Ranking Minority Member Patrick Leahy of Vermont, Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold, both of Wisconsin.

It's great that they did their jobs and got the vote done. Now...if only the whole Senate will allow an UP or DOWN vote.

Don't Doink Rehashed

ACLU battles 'abstinence-only' education

The American Civil Liberties Union has launched a drive to persuade education officials in 18 states to reject federal government-affiliated abstinence-only programs.

The ACLU, citing data from a December 2004 report by Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., claims the programs discriminate against homosexuals, contain too much religious connotation and spread false information, the Washington Times reported.

The civil rights organization began its campaign as Maine officials announced they would reject federal abstinence-only funding, becoming the third state to do so. Officials said the federal rules contravene state policy.

Maine officials said the state would refuse grant money offered through a 1996 federal welfare reform law because it could only be used to fund abstinence-only education and not "comprehensive" sex education.

"This money is more harmful than it is good," Dr. Dora Anne Mills, director of Maine's Bureau of Health, told the Portland Press Herald. "You can't talk about comprehensive reproductive information."

Don't want to have 'restrictions' on that money you're looking to accept from the Federal government?

That's okay - you don't have to take it. You'll just have to budget money from the state general fund to promote/fuel your version of this program.

Of course, I've talked about this before and the message is still the same: Is getting some nasty disease really worth it for about 22 minutes of pleasure?

How's that phrase go...? Penny Wise, Pound Foolish?

You'll pay dearly later for 'getting some' now. And when you're rotting to death because of AIDS or some other nasty STD, you can think back to that little blond chippy that was a 'hot little thang' back when you were young....think back and remember that it seemed safe.

And then you'll have a better understanding of what we like to call 'personal responsibility'.

Nosegear Malfunction

I watched this live on television during dialysis yesterday afternoon:

JetBlue Passengers Watched News of Drama

LOS ANGELES - A JetBlue airliner with faulty landing gear touched down safely Wednesday evening at Los Angeles International Airport after circling the region for three hours with its front wheels turned sideways and unable to retract into the plane.

The safe landing was made at an auxiliary runway set apart from the main terminals. The pilot landed using the back wheels first and then eased onto the front tires, which smoked, popped and sparked on contact.

Emergency crews from across the area massed near the runway, ready to help the 139 passengers and six crew members.

It looked like it was going to be another Irwin Allen disaster on live television, but it wasn't.

And this isn't the first time that an Airbus 320 has had problems with its nose landing gear....kind of makes you want to fly a Boeing aircraft instead.

Air America Begs for Money

Just received this through my INTEL network:

Dear Air America Radio Listener,

When we launched the Air America Radio network one year ago, the country was being talked to death by conservative zealots like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, and others. Right Wing radio saturated every media market and every community – a dominance of the airwaves that has been a huge part of what allowed the Right Wing to:

  • Drag America into the Iraq war.
  • Open up the Arctic National Refuge for oil drilling.
  • Take over both houses of Congress.
  • And, of course, win the 2004 Presidential election.
Rather than wait for the Right Wing to run out of breath, we launched Air America Radio to give the country back its voice. Thanks to listeners like you, we have a presence on 70 stations covering 60% of U.S. media markets. Air America Radio currently offers 15 shows and runs 24 hours a day of entertaining – at times irreverent – but always enlightening programming.
And here comes the reason for this message...

The Liberal Heart

Geoffrey over at Dog Snot Diaries notes the.....hypocrisy of liberals much like I have in the past except for the fact that these liberals condone and PROMOTE rape as a retalitory weapon:

Sally says: "Someone needs to offer to rape Malkin with a reinforced steel dildo heated to 300F." Wait.....aren't liberals for tolerance? Is this the same Sally that laments the pain the Iraqis are suffering? She wants to see Malkin raped? Maybe she was joking. What do her cohorts have to say?

This rational moonbat agreed with her. "Fuckin' A-right. She's got it coming. If it wasn't for idiot wingnuts like Gordon, she'd be doing 4 ping-pong ball shows a night in a Bangkok whorehouse. There's not a got-damn thing that could be said about her bad enough for what she does daily here in the country she hates."

The chicago dyke doesn't advocate violence, "i just hate violence against women, all women, even dumb fascist cunts who "deserve" it."

So we now we see beyond the curtain, wizard to see exactly what liberals really want in their heart-of-hears.

Michael Savage was right: Liberalism IS a mental disorder.

UPDATE/ADDEnDUM: Unless Atrios decides to edit and/or delete these nasty comments least they make him look complicitous, here is the orginal comment thread where these nuggets of humanity might be found.

Don't Get Stuck on Stupid

I heard about this on The Laura Ingraham Show while taking my kid to school.

Don't get stuck on stupid

And we understand that there's a problem in getting communications out. That's where we need your help. But let's not confuse the questions with the answers. Buses at the convention center will move our citizens, for whom we have sworn that we will support and defend...and we'll move them on. Let's not get stuck on the last storm. You're asking last storm questions for people who are concerned about the future storm. Don't get stuck on stupid, reporters. [Emphasis mine - Ed.] We are moving forward. And don't confuse the people please. You are part of the public message. So help us get the message straight. And if you don't understand, maybe you'll confuse it to the people. That's why we like follow-up questions. But right now, it's the convention center, and move on.

This is exactly how a press conference should go - reporters ask questions and the person giving the briefing tells them what-is-what at that moment and leave the second-guessing to arm-chair commentators.

Incorrectly Titled

I hate to say this about a movie....but this one sucked!

I'm talking about 'Shark Boy & Lava Girl' type sucking.....'Matrix Reloaded' kind of suckiness.

We rented this and started to watch it today considering that it would be inappropriate for my daughter to watch and it had to be back to Hollywood Video this evening.

My wife got up and left 13 minutes into the movie. I suffered along for another couple of minutes, hoping in vain that it would pick up and get interesting.

Didn't happen.

This movie IMHO should have been called 'Suck City'. It should be shown repeatedly to Gitmo detainees; they'll be spilling their guts with all sorts of useful information after the second or third showing.

This is probably the first movie in about five years that I couldn't sit through and to me, it's indicative of the stretching that Hollywood script writers are facing. If it isn't adaptations of comic books 'graphic novels', then it's 'revamps' of every beat-to-sh!t television show from the late 60s/early 70s. Seriously, I'm waiting for appearances on the big screen for:

  • My Three Sons
  • The Banana Splits
  • The Bugaloos
  • The Courtship of Eddie's Father (I know - from a movie to the small screen and back)
  • Mannix
  • Hawaii Five-O
  • Grape Ape
  • Jabber Jaw
Did I miss any?

Didn't someone predict that Western civilization would crumble under the weight of 're-envisioned' movies/television shows? Could the Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse really be a Hollywood producer instead of the California Secretary of State with a fistfull of initiatives?

Childish Antics

This is messed up:

Border watchers attacked during training session
A group called Gente [Unida] confronted volunteer border watchers in San Diego yesterday with obscenities, shoving and U.S. flag desecration, causing Friends of the Border to abandon a planned deployment and an apology by the group's leader for not having police protection for senior citizen and other members of the group.

Andy Ramirez, chairman of Friends of the Border, said he was concerned about the safety of his volunteers.

"Safety comes first, even before our primary mission to help the Border Patrol secure our border with Mexico," he said.

One eyewitness told WND he saw members of Gente [Unida] assault four members of the border-watch group, including organizer Capt. Drew Johnson, a retired Navy officer.

"Gente [Unida] stole an American flag, ripped from its staff and trampled it, as captured on film by cameraman Larry Morgan," said Roger Canfield, a former Republican congressional candidate.

The confrontation began when border volunteers were checking in at a card table for a training session, Canfield said.

And yet if the roles here were reversed, these Gente Unida stains would be HOWLING about being repressed and objects of 'hate crimes'.

It is interesting to note that while the Friends of the Border Patrol are doing much the same work as the Minutemen Project, i.e. observing and reporting illegal aliens, the protesters are the ones that resort to violence since they obviously cannot formulate a cohesive argument....much like a spoild child throwing a temper tantrum.

It's okay children - we're going to have pudding later!! Yeah!!

UPDATE: Check out this video of this protest. Especially noteworthy is the exchange between a gentleman speaking calmly and getting some protester screaming SHUT THE F*CK UP!! about three inches from his face.

What lovely people.....makes me want to invite them over for some right-wing pizza wings. Or maybe to take a shower.

No Nukes, Part ??

Where have we seen this before:

North Korea Agrees to Stop Building Nukes

BEIJING -- North Korea on Monday agreed to stop building nuclear weapons and allow international inspections in exchange for energy aid, economic cooperation and security assurances, in a first step toward disarmament after two years of six-nation talks.

The chief U.S. envoy to the talks praised the breakthrough as a "win-win situation" and "good agreement for all of us." But he promptly urged Pyongyang to make good on its promises by ending operations at its main nuclear facility at Yongbyon.

"What is the purpose of operating it at this point?" said U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill. "The time to turn it off would be about now."

Despite the deal's potential to help significantly ease friction between the North and the United States after years of false starts and setbacks, Hill remained cautious.

"We have to see what comes in the days and weeks ahead," he said.

How's that saying go?

Fool me once, shame on you

Fool me twice, shame on me

Hard cash says that there is some sort of 'problem' with the inspectors entering the nuclear reactor site in Yongbyon....

UPDATE: And we all knew this was coming.....there's a catch to this entire deal.
