The Donks only plan is bashing Bush. They are mired in their old tactic of slandering the Republicans, the military, the unborn, traditional values etc. etc. Like the sixties radicals they are only good at tearing structures down, but they haven't a clue what to do with the rubble they create.

What's this brouhaha involving Laurie David, Sheryl Crow and the evil genius Karl Rove? It seems like the women picked an inappropriate occasion to accost Mr. Rove and then feigned shock at his reaction.
Crow and David described on the Huffington Post Web site that when Rove turned toward his table, Crow touched his arm and “Karl swung around and spat, ‘Don’t touch me.’ ”
Now, one must ask who wants to be touched by some obnoxious woman who only uses one square of toilet paper in the bathroom? Obviously Rove was in no mood to risk taking crap from Crow.

CNN reports that John Edwards was asked how he reconciled his emphasis on combating poverty with the recent disclosure that $400 in campaign funds were used to pay for his haircut.
"That was a mistake, which we've remedied," he said. "But if the question is ... whether I live a privileged and blessed lifestyle now, the answer to that's 'yes.' A lot of us do. But it's not where I come from, and I've not forgotten where I come from."
Notice how he briefly answers the question he was asked and then asks himself a question. The question should be when there is poverty in your own nation when, ever, is a $400 haircut justified or necessary. The answer is, NEVER! Perhaps growing hair on a bald pate my be worth that kind of dough, but there is nothing anyone can do to hair that is worth that price.
According to Edwards it was a mistake. Why? Because he got caught. Obviously from the answer he gave to his own question he considers $400 haircuts a blessing and a part of his privileged lifestyle. What kind of ethics and scruples did you expect from this ambulance chaser? It is amazing what rises to the top of the toxic waste that is now known as the Democrats.

CNS reports, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 (H.R. 1592) would expand the federal definition of hate crimes to include violence against a person because of his or her "actual or perceived" sexual orientation or "gender identity."
Under the bill, people who attack others out of "hatred" for their race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability would be committing a federal offense.
The Democrats rejected many Republican proposed amendments including those that would protect the elderly, the unborn and the military (none of whom are the pets of the "Surrender Party". The Democrat Thought Police also refused to define "sexual orientation" and "gender identity". Any guesses as to why?
The Democrats for all their rants about free speech, liberalism etc. are really the party of censorship and thought control. They prefer their supporters to respond in zombie like fashion to simple commands, no questions asked. Is this who we want controling the government in 2008? Forbid it, Almighty God.

In January, speaking during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day event, she said to her black audience that the Bush administration was “one of the worst” in U.S. history and the House “has been run like a plantation, and you know what I’m talking about.”
Then, we have her "I don't feel noways tired" quote. She must be talking about that trip she made from the plantation to the maid's job in NYC this weekend when she said, "I'm afraid I'm going to lift up the rug and I'm going to see so much stuff under there." (Yes, Hillary you'll probably find Bill's old condom wrappers.) She drawled on, "You know, what is it about us always having to clean up after people? But this is not just going to be picking up socks off the floor. This is going to be cleaning up the government." (Because the Clinton's were so squeaky clean the first time around)
All this fakery and foolery seems to be for naught. According to this article in The New York Times, New York Black elected officials are undecided about supporting Hillary. Obama is making inroads into Clinton turf.
Things are going to get interesting if this continues. How outrageous will Hillary get in her attempt to board the soul train? The possibilities are limitless!

Not that this little piece of news will shock anyone, but the mayor of San Franswishco, Gavin Newsom, is going to do his utmost to keep the city as a sanctuary for illegals. He plans to do everything he can to discourage federal authorities from conducting immigration raids. Hopefully, neither the feds nor anyone with an ounce of common sense and national pride will pay any attention to this idiot. Gavin is an example of what happens when you kill brain cells, you can ill afford to lose.
Read the story here.

"We found that the program had been compromised and the fraud rate was excessively high," Emilio Gonzalez, head of Citizen and Immigration Services at Homeland Security said. I would like to know what amount of fraud Emilio and his fellow security stooges think is not excessive and therefore acceptable. I thought it took only one bad guy getting access to this nation to wreak havoc, but I'm sure perfection is not the goal of Homeland Security.
However, Homeland Security will now plan to implement new regulations in an effort to prevent radical groups from using the visa program to get terrorists into the U.S. The regulations will allow inspectors and Customs officials to investigate religious organizations sponsoring applicants to assure that they are legitimate. What a plan, what insight!
They will also demand more proof from applicants that they are qualified for the job they're seeking, and require proof of employment after one year on the job before extending a visa.
Are these geniuses amazing or what? Why don't I feel the least bit more secure and why do I think we are wasting our tax dollars overpaying these rent a cop rejects for even showing up to work? Maybe we need the IRS to keep an eye on things.

As I mentioned in October's post, while his divorce was still not finalized, he was living with his lover Mark O'Donnell. Even when his marriage was intact, it didn't prevent him from having affairs. So what happened to his vows to his wife? So much for that commitment and that was his second marriage.
Although he claimed to be a devout Roman Catholic, he remarried without an annulment from his first marriage, is pro abortion and continues to carry on gay affairs. So much for the religious commitment.
He was accused by his homeland security adviser of sexual harassment and of offering money to make the pending lawsuit go away. So much for the oath of office commitment or any vestige of integrity at all.
This is, for want of a more accurate description, a man who has violated every oath and vow he has taken. Yet, guess what! He now has a combination teaching and consulting post at Kean University in Union, New Jersey. His new job will be teaching law, ethics and leadership. Don't laugh, I'm not making this up it's all here at The Star Ledger. And, we wonder what's wrong with our educational system.
As New Jersey State Republican Chairman Tom Wilson says, "Jim McGreevey teaching law and ethics is a little bit like Doctor Kevorkian teaching health maintenance."
But, as you might expect the leftwing Democrats cannot divorce themselves from any slimeball, no matter how repulsive he might be.
"He has a lot to offer," said Senator Raymond Lesniak (D-Union), a McGreevey confidant. "As governor, he obviously made mistakes along the way. And he knows it. He obviously will talk about how he succeeded and how he was wrong. The guy wasn't a complete failure. I wouldn't mind going to the class myself if I were a student." Can you believe this idiot? McGreevey has a lot to offer in the same way an unfiltered sewer drain has much to offer.
Nancy Pelosi is probably looking for a job for McGreevey in her new honest government at this very moment. Is there not one righteous man or woman left in this pathetic party called the Democrats?

Sharpton has put off plans to honor the head of Island Def Jam Music Group, whose singers include Ludacris.
"We don't want to be inconsistent," Sharpton told the New York Post. No, never you, Al.
These liberal slimeballs are enough to gag a maggot.

Is it going to turn out that the horror at Virginia Tech yesterday was perpetrated by a foreign national? That's what authorities are investigating because it seems the killer arrived here from China on a student visa. No one has linked him to any terrorist groups yet and I'm not sure we would be told if they did.
Anyway, there is just a brief mention of his nationality in the news for now. We will have to await more details, at least those the authorities are willing to release. Meanwhile, the mourning for the murdered continues.UPDATE: Gunman identified as Cho Seung-hui, a 23-year-old English major from South Korea.

Only last week, Maj-Gen William Caldwell, the US military spokesman in Iraq, said that questioning of fighters captured as recently as this month confirmed many had been in Iranian training camps.
How long are we going to tolerate Iran waging war on us?

1. I enjoy writing.
2. The insanity of groups like the ACLU, Moveon.org etc. cannot be over emphasized.
3. The insanity of people like Harry Belafonte, Michael Moore, Cindy Sheehan, Dick Durbin etc. (please refer to number 2)
4. I enjoy interacting with other bloggers and those who only wish to read my blog. My following is small but faithful.
5. It has allowed me to meet and befriend new people, like TrekMedic, I never otherwise would have gotten the opportunity to know.
There, I've done it.

If, as The Washington Times suggests, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine was not wearing a seat belt, which is in violation of state law, will he be issued a citation? Or, will he get the Kennedy form of justice and be allowed to violate the law and receive preferential treatment that the rest of us insignificant peons are denied?
A state trooper was driving, but probably didn't enforce the law (there must be some penalty for that) because as Corzine's chief of staff, Tom Shea, says, the governor is "not always amenable to suggestion." Translation, the governor feels he is above the law. What else can you expect from a far left liberal ? But, as Jon has just found out, stuff happens and there are real consequences for irrational liberal behavior.
Arrested in September 2005 on charges of incitement to terrorist acts, he was accused of having produced and distributed some 12,000 CDs, DVDs and videos, containing speeches and chants where people linked to terrorist organizations called for jihad and praised terrorists. Just some simple traditional Muslim religious rituals.
The court found that he had made anti-Semitic statements and distributed material calling for the killing of Jews, describing them as monkeys and pigs.
Of course, Mansour pleaded innocent even though he had contact with the head of the Spanish branch of the Al-Qaeda network (Al-Qaeda has big plans for Spain) and met Abu Qutada, who was involved with Al-Qaeda financing in Europe. He was also the registered user of a postal box in Denmark in the 1990s for Al-Qaeda number two man, Ayman al-Zawahiri of Egypt, and he bragged about having personal contact with Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman, now serving a life sentence for having instigated attacks in New York.

The Democrats will talk to anyone except our president. They love to chat with Fidel Castro, Bashar al-Assad, Kim Jong Il, the Muslim brotherhood and the list goes on. Yet, when the chief executive of the United States asks to meet, they scorn his invitation.
If your hands are soaked in the blood of the innocent that's your ticket to Democrat dialogue. Then, the Donks wonder why their patriotism is questioned.

This week, the U.N. Disarmament Commission elected its vice-chair. Guess who the majority of member states picked. Was it a nation with a record that befits the position? Noooooo, they picked Iran, the country that has violated the non-proliferation resolutions of the very commission its been re-elected to help chair.
Just two weeks earlier, the U.N. Human Rights Council announced it would no longer examine human rights abuses in Iran, even though those abuses included executions (including minors), torture (including amputations, eye-gouging, floggings), and severe restrictions of religious and political freedoms.
Why do we continue to support this nest of vipers?
Thanks to NewsMax.

It's a shame they didn't get an opportunity to get pelted with the bricks and rocks our real law enforcement gets hit with on a regular basis. Perhaps a good blow to the head would instill some common sense in these two clueless conspirators.
I'll leave you with this quote from our president announcing his latest insight. "If you don't man your border and don't protect your borders, people are going to sneak in." Ya think?

The Iranians are the ones who were where they shouldn't have been, making an incursion into Iraqi waters. They illegally seized British military personnel who were there by UN mandate, held them hostage and abused them.
The only review the British should be making is how they will retaliate. I am afraid, however, those days are long gone and the British lion has lost its will to fight.
The US and Australia will continue to board cargo vessels, while the Brits lick their wounds.

Acceptable phrases now are , “the war in Iraq,” the “war in Afghanistan, “operations in the Horn of Africa” or “ongoing military operations throughout the world.”
“There was no political intent in doing this,” said a Democratic aide who asked not to be identified. “We were just trying to avoid catch phrases.” So, I guess we'll be watching to see if the Donks are going to follow their own policy and avoid "catch phrases" from here on out, especially around election time. Of course, this is the usual crock of lies and spin that spews from the sewer pipe called liberal Democrat talking points.

If there was any doubt that Pelosi's trip to Syria was a bad idea, it has been put to rest. Jimmy Carter has expressed his support for her and rejected White House criticism of the visit.
"I was glad that she went," Carter said. "When there is a crisis, the best way to help resolve the crisis is to deal with the people who are instrumental in the problem."
Yes, and we all know how well Jimmy Carter deals with a crisis. Jimmy's less than admirable performance during the Iranian hostage situation has gone down in American history as one of the worst leadership failures ever by a president. Fifty two Americans were held by the Islamomaniacs for 444 days and Jimmy failed utterly in bringing the crisis to a close. The willingness of the psycho Persians to still engage in seizing the innocent (British marines) can be traced directly to his ineptitude.
Carter's inability to deal with an economis crisis is legendary. During his presidency, inflation ran rampant, the energy crisis exploded and Carter's performance spiraled downward. From Iran to the attack of the killer bunny, Jimmy has humiliated himself and this nation with astonishing regularity. Voting him out of office has done little to quell his skill at embarassing himself and his country. His love of murdering dictators and barbarian hordes is well documented and at every turn he condemns the land that has long endured his foibles.
It is no wonder he applauds Pelosi and her willingness to embrace the Syrian terrorist Bashar Al-Assad. She is continuing the Carter legacy of losing to evil without putting up a fight.

According to the article here the make believe attack involved two men armed with handguns who invaded the high school through the front door. They pretended to shoot several students in the hallway and then barricaded themselves in the media center with 10 student hostages. The gunmen are described as members of a right-wing fundamentalist group called the “New Crusaders” who don't believe in separation of church and state.
This may be a big fear of the conspiracy du jour lefties, but no rational person is concerned about an attack by rightwing Christians on our children. Now, let's think about which group regularly uses children as weapons and targets of war, Hmmm. Can you say Islamomaniacs? I knew you could.
It is this kind of pc pandering that obfuscates the real threats to our nation and replaces them with the strawmen of the left. What nonsense.
NewsMax reports that Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have arrested three Mexican citizens that had guns, ammunition, drugs and more than $600,000 in cash. Two of the three arrested are in the country illegally (what a shock).
What were they planning? They were found with six guns, 2,000 rounds of ammunition, $640,000 in cash and some cocaine. I suppose they were just looking for jobs Americans won't take.
Someone call the attorney general of Mexico and demand he explain this absurdity!

England's Daily Mail reports that schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons. The reason is they are afraid of offending Muslim pupils. A government backed study has also shown that the subject of the Crusades is likewise being avoided because the truth often contradicts the islamofantasies taught in the mosques.
When we fail to confront the schizophrenic babblings of the prophet's psychotics this is the kind of idiocy that results. It permits their delusions to continue and encourages them to act out their barbarian beliefs. It is time to treat the patient. Begin the shock and awe therapy now!

And, the April Fool Award goes to the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. A few of the idiotic actions allowing her to garner this trophy are, visiting "Giraffe Boy Bashar" the Syrian terrorist supporter and Jew hater (how is Nancy getting around Syria's travel restrictions???) , allowing pork projects to be tied to the proposed emergency supplemental appropriations bill and Nancy's unusual means of creating the most ethical Congress ever. The competition for this award is intense, especially in Washington DC, but Nancy deserves it.
