The Chilling truth about Some Islamists and their websites

Just when I thought it couldn't get worse, it did. Michelle Malkin contains a link to The Counterterrorism Blog: Christians on PalTalk Chat Service Tracked by Radical Islamic Web Site. I cannot see any justification for this kind of website. None whatsoever. I imagine there are apolgists for the Islamo-Facists who will claim it to be harmless. Then again, there were those who dismissed Adolph Hitler as a frustrated paper-hanger and political hooligan with a Charlie Chaplin mustache.

As I was reading Michelle Malkin: KERRY AND THE SWIFT VETS REVISITED this lept out at me. that the LOSER said he would sign form 180 if his critics would. I would like to remind the LOSER that his opponent in the election DID.

Rice Confirmed

Senate Confirms Rice is the actuall headline. The teaser on the Netscape home page was "Rice Confirmed Despite Opposition" The vote was 85-13, the opposition was at best token. Loud, but token.

Isn't This the Guy who left Washington to go into Hiding at Election Time

Mark Dayton, D.Minnesota, who gained notariety for running away from Washington to hide at home in the weeks leading up to the election, has a lot of nerve. Here we have a case of a coward calling Condelezza Rice a "liar".
The only one I could think that would have made me more disgusted to have seen this coming from would be the Senior Senator from the Ku Klux Klan, Robert Byrd. Not saying his conduct in this matter hasn't been disgusting already.

Big Day for the Culture of Death

I will start with the relatively trivial. The Oscar nominations are out..."The Passion..." was, to no one's surprise, snubbed in the majors. But got a couple of bones tossed to it with tech nominations for cinematography and make-up. Who and what did get major nominations? Well, the stars and vehicles about a pedophile, a back-alley abortionist and Clint Eastwood's celebration of euthansia. I refuse to name any of them.
Now that the trivia is out of the way, on to the big story. The Florida Supreme Court has cleared the way for Terry Schiavo to die [registration required]. I am sick of hearing about "Terry's right to die". If we knew it was Terry's wish that would be one thing. The problem is that we have only her husband's and a few of his friends' word that that was her wish. Unfortunately for Terry, hubby's track record in the realm of integrity leaves something to be desired.I am not comfortable with the idea that I could be "mercy killed"(don't you just love that oxymoronic phrase) on the say-so of someone who is inconvenienced by my state of health.
Of course when you come right down to it, the whole culture of death, the celebration of abortion that Planned Parenthood engages in, the whole thing about involuntary euthanasia boils down to a matter of comfort and convenience for the people pushing my opinion that is.
I think what galls me in all this is the people we, as a society, choose to celebrate. Look at the oscar nominees. And don't be surprised if one day Michael becomes the hero in all this (in the eyes of some) and we see an Oscar nomination for best picture for the "Michael Schiavo Story"

Liddy Letter

I ran accross this in theLiddy Letter and thought it was great.

Dear Ma and Pa:

I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before maybe all of the places are filled.

I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6a.m., but am getting so I like to sleep late.

Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water.

Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food plus yours holds you till noon when you get fed again.

It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on "route marches", which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The country is nice but awful flat. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Capt. is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none.

This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.

Then we have what they call hand-to hand combat training careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake. I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds, and he's 6'8" and weighs near 300 pounds dry.

Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.

Your loving daughter,

OPPOSITION / Loud, peaceful protest interrupts Bush speech / Code Pink activists access VIP section -- and get expelled

OPPOSITION / Loud, peaceful protest interrupts Bush speech / Code Pink activists access VIP section -- and get expelled: "The most effective -- and disruptive -- protest may have come from the anti-war group Code Pink, which obtained 16 tickets to the inauguration from their members of Congress. Eight female activists, including Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin of San Francisco, obtained seats in the VIP section."

Now I can almost hear these congresspeople saying, "But it is a group of peaceful people." As I recall, Yassar Arafat was once given a Nobel Peace Prize. A move applauded by Democrats. I remember Hillary Clinton embracing his wife. And yet these people encouraged the random killing of Jews.
Do these Dems vett the people they send these tickets to at all? Granted, these people were, in the long run, nothing more than a minor annoyance. But given congressional Democrats love affair with terrorist groups, it could have been worse.
What I really find reprehensible is the congressional Dem's cowardly use of proxies like Code Pink to do what they apparently don't have the collective spine to do themselves.
Thank you Michelle Malkin for bringing this to our attention.

Who Was the Mystery Voice

While listening to a clip from Condi Rice's confirmation hearing on the Laura Ingraham Show, while Barak Obama had the floor some one in the background could be heard to be saying, "...hold up the nomination...". I thought it sounded like The Loser (Senator Kerry for those of you new to this site) but I could be wrong. But I am not wrong about what I heard.

The Dawn Patrol:Planned Parenthood's Clerical Error

The Dawn Patrol has a great commentary on The Religious Institute of Sexual Justice and Healing. At first I thought that this was just a new name for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. Sadly that group still exists as well. I'm kind of surprised PP doesn't support them as well (perhaps it is the stylized cross and manorah in its logo that offends PP).
So now we know that there are at least two organizations for those who cannot come to grips with the fact that faith systems require self discipline at some point. At one of the last annual conferences I attended, a proposal for a youth program that celebrates abstinance. Yes, it was being debated. Now most of the nonsense like we see from RISJH and RCRC comes from clergy who are trying to be "relevant". Sadly that is not the case. During the course of the debate, a lay member of conference got up and said...and I'll never forget these words, "I am afraid this will sending the message what we value abstinance more and I fear for the feelings of those who have made other choices".
Well the number of speeches for the program had been exhausted which prevented her from hearing, "There is no intent to make anybody feel that they have no value as a person. However, the Christian faith demands the highest ideals in our personal morality. Yes, those who fall short are to be reconciled, but not at the expense to throw out the idea that we should strive to make our lives the purest that we can to honor our Savior."
There is a move in the Christian community that believes that the church should be a place of warm fuzzies. At times, yes. However, that does not mean that it should not make us uncomfortable when we need to be made so. One of the greatest dangers to personal faith is comfort in all things.

What a Prince

I think it is time the British Royal Family should go back to school. Does Prince Harry really think this is just a harmless lil costume party stunt? Harry, harry if you had actually done your homework in school instead paying somebody to do it, or skiving classes you might have learned that there is absolutely NOTHING noble or romantic about that uniform and you would abdicate your place in the line of succession to someone more deserving. Someone like, oh say, Ivar Biggun?

More Canonizing of John Lennon

This fits into the category of "me too". One of my daily must-reads isThe Dawn Patrol. today (okay it's actually yesterday by now) she mentioned that Rolling Stone had named John Lennon's "Imagine" as the number three greatest song of all time. Personally I rate it way behind Ringo Starr's rendition of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer"
I remember in 1971, in 7th grade Fairwold Junior High School (Now WG Sanders Middle School) was still having a morning devotional over the PA (don't ask me how we got away with that, because I don't know). One of the intros used for the devotional was "Imagine" (don't ask me to explain that one either). I had never actually paid much attention to the words until later and it left me scratching my then 13-year-old head going, "what?".
Well, I have imagined all that Lennon asked us to in that song, and I really don't see that as a society I wish to be a part of. What Mr. Lennon left out of his utopian vision was the loss of freedom of thought and expression that accompanies the fruition of the Communist Manifesto.
Why do I mention the Communist Manifesto? Because Lennon claimed that "Imagine" was the Communist Manifesto set to music.
Now I am a big fan of the early work of the Beatles. When they got into obscure symbolism and attempted mysticism they lost me. After the break up I could only stand to listen to Ringo Starr. George doing the Hare Krishna airport chant turned me off, and Paul was trying to find his musical nich with my opinion. I couldn't stand to listen to John and Yoko...or John by himselfr for that matter, and "Imagine" and "Give Peace a Chance" were the reasons. Not to mention the fact that given the choice of listening to Yoko and fingernails on a blackboard I will easily choose the latter.
Did Lennon really think the USSR, or China or Cuba were the Shangri-La's he seemed to think? Probably, it's not like we can ask directly. I find there is still a lot of naivite when it comes to communism. As I expected, my college-sophmore son has taken such a view of communism ( know I did at that age). he asked me if I had ever read the Manifesto or Das Kapital, to which I respond, "yes, have you?"
I further ask him if he has ever compared those works to the "Programe of the German National Socialist Workers Party[aka the Nazi Party]" and defy him to show me a major difference. As yet he hasn't.

Michelle Malkin Is one of my daily must-reads. Today I saw this:Michelle DEBBIE SCHLUSSEL VS. THE AMERICAN GIGOLO AND GEORGE CONSTANZA on her site. All I can say is read Debbie Schlussel's post as linked by Mrs. malkin.
Of special interest to me, the "cleric" mentioned in the linked article was in fact defrocked by the Orthodox Church. I was somewhat ammused that one of the people in the spot didn't know who Richard Gere was. It would serve him right to have his intended audience say, "Richard who?"
By the way, you do NOT speak for me, do not claim to.

Michelle Malkin: LIVIN' IN A BRATZ TROLLZ WORLD Say it Ain't So!

Okay, granted I am not exactly Mimi Bobeck when it comes to Trolls, but when I readMichelle Malkin: LIVIN' IN A BRATZ TROLLZ WORLD I thought , "not again". Some in the entertainment industry seem to think that everything has to be relavent to the moment. Whatever fad or trend is in vogue has to be reflected.
I am sorry but I have no desire to see "Goth Girl Barbie", or a body-modified Judy Jetson. Please, don't need to do this...some things do withstand the test of time.

All the best as this new chapter starts. I know I am late with the Pancake Awards but they are being stacked as we speak (so much stupidity, so little time)
