The Man puts down the NAACP

Via The Los Angeles Slimes:

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service has informed the NAACP that it is investigating whether the civil rights organization improperly "intervened in a political campaign" when it posted on its website a speech by Chairman Julian Bond that condemned the Bush administration's policies.

"I'm so ashamed of my father..."

A teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All typical answers came up-fireman, policeman, doctor, etc.
David was quiet, so the teacher asked him about his father. "My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of other men and they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, he will go home with some guy and make love with him for money."
The teacher, obviously shaken by his statement, hurriedly set the other children to work and took David aside to ask him, "Is that true about your father?"
"No" said David, "He works for the Democratic National Committee to elect John Kerry, but I was too embarassed to say that in front of the other kids."

Bush, Kerry to appear on ESPN's SportsCenter

Bush: "I'm not sure what I'd like to do after serving the country. But I had a wonderful time in baseball. I loved my time there. I still love to watch the games; there's nothing more therapeutic than watching a baseball game."

Spoken like a man who played stickball until dusk and loves a warm apple pie fresh from the window sill.

Kerry said he has supported stadiums that are funded by taxpayers.

"I want to make certain that when you do that again, these other kinds of things are balanced," he said. "The minute you get the public piece in there, then you have a right to demand some sort of public accountability. And the sports people can't have it both ways in my judgment. You can't have the public support a completely private enterprise ... that's where the standards and the fans protection become much more paramount."


Spoken like a man who has NO IDEA WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT and probably has never graced the SportsWorld with his presence except for that unfortunate p.r. driven instance where he turned to the blue-collar schmoe who cut in line in front of him at the concession stand and said, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?"

"Radio listeners torch blue banner to protest United Nations Day"

This definitely has to be one of THE best news stories I have ever read in my life.
File it under "all-time faves" for me.

A group of talk-radio listeners in Montana burned a United Nations flag to protest a ceremony at the state's Capitol honoring the global body.

On Friday, KGEZ radio host John Stokes in Kalispell, Mont., got wind of a planned ceremony that afternoon at the state Capitol in Helena to honor the U.N. on United Nations Day (though Sunday was actually U.N. Day). Stokes tells WorldNetDaily the ceremony included members of the Montana National Guard carrying and presenting a U.N. flag that was to be hoisted over the building.

"Needless to say, our listeners and I became immediately outraged," Stokes said. "It was suggested by a listener to demonstrate our outrage. A call to patriots went out over the air."

At 1 p.m., the time the Capitol ceremony was to take place, over 30 protesters gathered at Stokes' radio station for the flag burning. Stokes says the crowd included mothers, children, seniors and handicapped citizens.

"We began with the Star Spangled Banner blaring across the airways, saluting the U.S. flag flying high above the station, followed by the Pledge of Allegiance and a very appropriate prayer for our nation, our Constitution and the Republic," Stokes explained.

"Then the volunteers provided the pole and gas, and I provided the despicable U.N. flag."

The crowd shouted out a verbal countdown before the flag was torched.

Said Stokes: "Whoosh. It was completely gone in seconds. I hope it was an omen."

John Stokes and the rest of the Montanans should each be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom or the Congressional Gold Medal...or or...both!

Slowly slipping into the minority category? Vote Kerry.

No need to even link to the article here, kids. I'm only talking about one line.

AP: [...] Bush won Colorado big in 2000, by 51 percent to Al Gore's 42 percent. But a weak economy, the state's growing Hispanic population and a competitive Senate race gave Kerry reason to give it another look.
I know I know I know. It's referring to immigration policy (or lack thereof) but still. It just struck me as funny because I read it like this:

A snippit:

"Politics has become so pervasive that the Higher Education Ministry has posted signs on all campuses that tell students their rights. Among them: 'The freedom of opinion expression is a guaranteed right to the entire academic society, under the rule that this does not interfere with a student's education.'" [...]

School District Bans Halloween out of respect for...WITCHES

Eric beat me to this story by 3 hours and 46 mins. Punk.

"We really want to make sure we're using all of our time in the best interest of our students," explained Puyallup School District spokesperson Karen Hansen.

Hansen says the superintendent made the decision for three primary reasons. First, Halloween parties and parades waste valuable classroom time. In addition some families can't afford costumes.

It's the third reason some Puyallup parents are struggling with.

The district says Halloween celebrations and children dressed in Halloween costumes might be offensive to real witches.

Eric: "All one of them."

John Kerry during the second presidential debate on October 8th:

"...I can't take what is an article of faith for me and legislate it for someone who doesn't share that article of faith, whether they be agnostic, atheist, Jew, Protestant, whatever. I can't do that."
John Kerry last Saturday, pandering to social conservatives in Xenia, Ohio:
"I will bring my faith with me to the White House and it will guide me,"
No. Freakin. Way. That's just unbelievable. The guy will say ANYTHING! ANYTHING I tell you!

And it's not just the simple fact he contradicts himself every other day, but it really really crosses the line when he takes something so sacred and personal as faith and blatantly and unabashedly uses it for his own political misdeeds!

Verse of the day:

But mark this:
There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money,
boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous,
without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
treacherous, rash, conceited,
lovers of pleasure rather than
lovers of God
- having a form of godliness
but denying its power.

Have nothing to do with them.

Sweet merciful crap.

"Critics of the U.N. complain that it's an organization without the muscle and will to put its decisions into effect," a U.N. source told UPI. "There's a good chance that Clinton could significantly change that situation,"
Right on! The president who effectively emascualted our military, managed to engage in a "justified" war in Kosovo merely because he was a Democrat, and treated the Bin Ladin threat like a legal issue (or merely a "nuisance", in Kerryspeak)?

Proppage: Alday

MATTHEWS: Let me ask you the question about--this is going to cause some trouble with people--but as an historian now and studying the Revolutionary War as it was fought out in the South in those last years of the War, insurgency against a powerful British force, do you see any parallels between the fighting that we did on our side and the fighting that is going on in Iraq today?

CARTER: Well, one parallel is that the Revolutionary War, more than any other war up until recently, has been the most bloody war we've fought. I think another parallel is that in some ways the Revolutionary War could have been avoided. It was an unnecessary war.

Does anyone else feel a draft in here? (scroll down to middle of page)

Engage 200,000 Americans A Year In "Service For College"
John Kerry and John Edwards will offer a simple deal to hundreds of thousands of America's young people: if you will serve for two years in one of America's toughest and most important jobs, we will cover four years of tuition at a typical public university.

On September 11th, 2001, America experienced the most terrible and deadly attack in its history. John Kerry believes we need to think big and do better and get more young Americans serving the nation.

As part of his 100 day plan to change America, John Kerry will propose a comprehensive service plan that includes requiring mandatory service for high school students and four years of college tuition in exchange for two years of national service.

I can just see the headlines now...

"'Backdoor draft' prevents soldiers from being discharged once 2 year commitment is up."

One thing Kerry neglected to mention...he would have to also restructure the hierarchical system of officer rankings and promotion paths. If I'm not mistaken, without a college degree (pending the soldiers don't return after college), the best you can hope to be is a Chief Warrant Officer?

Meanwhile, MTV's "non-partisan" Rock the Vote! campaign has a new video out... (alas, sin señorita Spears)

BUT the one of the other videos has SAMUEL L. JACKSON. He's black and cool and he was in Reservoir Dogs so he has to know what he's talking about.

(I was completely wrong on the scratched segment--thanks to Eric for clearing it up.)

To quote his comment,

"all the services have some sort of Officer Candidate school that allows enlisted men to become officers without a 4 year degree. That's how Tommy Franks did it."

Kerry gets his God on...
...and gives black churches the 411 on their emancipation

Man, I wish I was a skilled Photoshopper...I'd have a field day with this article.

MIAMI: With just three Sundays left before Election Day, Sen. John Kerry is asking for all the help he can get from black voters and the Almighty.

The Democratic presidential nominee attended two church services Sunday, instead of his usual one, worshipping first with Haitian Catholics and then with black Baptists, where the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton tied his election to the civil rights struggle.

"We have an unfinished march in this nation," Kerry said at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, as many congregants waved fans handed out by the campaign with his slogan, "Hope is on the way."

Last time I checked, HOPE was found in Christ, who should have been the focal point of your worship that Sunday, not John Forbes Khrist.

Meanwhile...the ACLU, Americans United for Sep. of Church and State and other church-state separation watchdog groups are nowhere to be found....

I mean, c'mon, you don't even have to infiltrate small-town churches and sit through their entire sermons to isolate anything that can even be slightly construed to be "political" or "right-wing."

Plain as day, in print and on-line,

"I see disturbing signs today that some of our churches have been confused by wolves in sheep's' clothing," [Jesse] Jackson said. "How did someone else put their agenda in the front of the line?"
Was that a slip up? "How did SOMEBODY ELSE get in the way of our goal of dumbing down the black masses and keep them perpetually sucking on the proverbial Democratic teat?"
"November 2, the power is in your hands, hands that once picked cotton," Jackson said.
Wow. Former slaves are still alive today? So that's why they believe so strongly reparations are still relevant...

Speakers avoided criticizing President Bush by name, since they were in church, but he was indirectly vilified.

Former Rep. Carrie Meek said Kerry is "fighting against liars and demons. ... He challenges the man who walks with a jaunty step." She rocked her hips in an imitation of Bush's swagger as the congregation cheered and Kerry laughed from his high-backed seat behind the pulpit.

Rep. Meek must have been reading from the book of Revelation in the DNC's Doomsday translation.

Satan would be pleased.

The Zeropean Worldview

"When you look out at the world from Vienna or Stockholm or Manchester and search for something to deplore, what do you see? You see Russia spiraling down into dictatorship after a brief interlude of struggling democracy. You see North Korea, arms salesman to the world's criminals, boasting of nuclear capability. You see genocide in Darfur. And of course, you see the ghastly face of terrorism in Madrid, Bali, New York, Washington, Tel Aviv and most especially Baghdad, where terrorists grab and behead innocent Americans and Europeans, and proudly videotape their savagery. But where do many Europeans focus their wrath? On the United States. ... There is something sickly about the European approach to the world." --Mona Charen

"I said Saddam Hussein was a threat, BEFORE I said he was not..."

Kerry kan't even keep his story straight for one night...

"Well, let me tell you straight up: I've never changed my mind about Iraq. I do believe Saddam Hussein was a threat. I always believed he was a threat. Believed it in 1998 when Clinton was president. I wanted to give Clinton the power to use force if necessary."
Later on, while answering a question regarding Iran…
"I don't think you can just rely on U.N. sanctions, Randee. But you're absolutely correct, it is a threat, it's a huge threat. "And what's interesting is, it's a threat that has grown while the president has been preoccupied with Iraq, where there wasn't a threat."

"Which is it!?!??!?!"

On healthcare, Kerry plays the traditional Dummocrat card: "I have a plan to fix everything. Everything that's wrong and that affects you, shall be fixed with MY plan. Don't worry, I will fix it and make it all better."

"I have a plan. I have a plan to lower the cost of health care for you. I have a plan to cover all children. I have a plan to let you buy into the same health care senators and congressmen give themselves.

I have a plan that's going to allow people 55 to 64 to buy into Medicare early.

And I have a plan that will take the catastrophic cases out of the system, off your backs, pay for it out of a federal fund, which lowers the premiums for everybody in America, makes American business more competitive and makes health care more affordable.

Now, all of that can happen, but I have to ask you to do one thing: Join me in rolling back the president's unaffordable tax cut for people earning more than $200,000 a year. That's all.

Ninety-eight percent of America, I'm giving you a tax cut and I'm giving you health care."

"pay for it out of a federal fund, which lowers the premiums for everybody in America..." In other words, Kerry wants to implement his own version of HillaryCare. Talk about taking a big chunk out of Hillary's 2008 platform...

Bush's response says it best,

"And finally, he said he's going to have a novel health care plan. You know what it is? The federal government is going to run it.

It's the largest increase in federal government health care ever. And it fits with his philosophy. That's why I told you about the award he won from the National Journal.

That's what liberals do. They create government-sponsored health care. Maybe you think that makes sense. I don't. Government-sponsored health care would lead to rationing. It would ruin the quality of health care in America."

Kerry responded by telling Americans where they can stick it if they don't like his "plan,":
"Let me begin by saying that my health-care plan is not what the president described. It is not a government takeover.

You have choice. Choose your doctor, choose your plan. The government has nothing to do with it.

In fact, it doesn't ask you to do anything -- if you don't want to take it, you don't have to. If you like your high premiums, you keep them. That's the way we leave it."

I'd sure like to know where he's going to get the revenue to pay for this "federal fund"... Hopefully, once he figures out how to work out the budget in order to allocate the funding, he'll put it in a lockbox--just to be safe.

( I know. I know. I suck at photoediting. I can't afford Photoshop nor will I pirate it. I wouldn't know how to do a thing with it anyway. But hey, it's not bad for my first MS PAINT edit.)

Posted by Kyer at 03:25 PM | Comments (0)


By: Don Fichthorn, Major USMC (Retired)

Eleven thousand soldiers
Lay beneath the dirt and stone,
All buried on a distant land
So far away from home.

For just a strip of dismal beach
They paid a hero's price,
To save a foreign nation
They all made the sacrifice.

And now the shores of Normandy
Are lined with blocks of white :
Americans who didn't turn
From someone else's plight.

Eleven thousand reasons
For the French to take our side,
But in the moment of our need,
They chose to run and hide.

Chirac said every war means loss,
Perhaps for France that's true,
For they've lost every battle
Since the days of Waterloo.

Without a soldier worth a damn
To be found within the region,
The French became the only land
to need a Foreign Legion.

You French all say we're arrogant.
Well hell, we've earned the right

We saved your sorry nation
When you lacked the guts to fight.

But now you've made a big mistake,
And one that you'll regret ;
You took sides with our enemies,
And that we won't forget.

It wasn't just our citizens
You spit on when you turned,
But every one of yours
Who fell the day the towers burned.

You spit upon our soldiers,
On our pilots and Marines,
And now you'll get a little sense
Of just what payback means.

So keep your Paris fashions
And your wine and your champagne,
And find some other market
That will buy your airplanes.

And try to find somebody else
To wear your French cologne,
For you're about to find out
what it means to stand alone.

You see, you need us far more
Than we ever needed you.
America has better friends
Who know how to be true.

I'd rather stand with warriors
Who have the will and might,
Than huddle in the dark
With those whose only flag is white.

I'll take the Brits, the Aussies,
The Israelis and the rest,
For when it comes to valor
We have seen that they're the best.

We'll count on one another
As we face a moment dire,
While you sit on the sideline
With a sign, "friendship for hire."

We'll win this war without you
And we'll total up the cost,
And take it from your foreign aid,
And then you'll feel the loss.

And when your nation starts to fall,
Well Frenchie, you can spare us,
Just call the Germans for a hand,
They know the way to Paris.

Laughter, eh? Yea, I'll say...I'm near hysterical on this end.

[This site] was built because we Democrats are a strong multi-religious group. We regularly do the difficult work of finding common ground for our public policy rather than succumbing to the quick and easy “one faith fits all” legislation of today's leadership. We are a beautiful multicolored, multi-faith people. Let us then rejoice and be proud of the ability to find oneness in our diversity! (the hilarity continues...)
Apparently, liberal faiths which permit homosexuality and the such are included in this "diversity" mix...

Kinky Koalas

Big Pimpin'
From The Scotsman:
KOALA bears are to be implanted with contraceptives to keep their numbers down and stop them munching the landscape bare at an Australian national park.

Around 2000 of the marsupials at the park in Victoria will be given a slow-release hormone which prevents conception for up to six years.

The notoriously fussy eaters survive on a diet of leaves from a small number of eucalyptus tree species.

Conservationists warn that koalas are in danger of dying out along Australia's east coast, as urban sprawl destroys their habitat.

But their population has exploded on Kangaroo Island, and some environmentalists have urged officials to shoot hundreds of the animals there because they are chewing their way through the island's foliage.
The Vatican, a longtime opponent of contraceptive methods, is silent on this one. The Australian Catholic Church is as well.

The Iraqi Threat: A Retrospective

From Blogs for Bush:

The question was never if Saddam Hussein posed a threat; everyone agreed he did. The question was who was going to do something about it.

"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them That is our bottom line."
- President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear...We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
- President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

"Iraq is a long way from [the USA], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
- Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
- Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
- Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998

"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
- Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has invigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In adition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
- Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, December 5, 2001

"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandated of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them."
- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

"I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force if necessary to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do."
- Rep.Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

''In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members .. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

"Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003

I hope they all eat their words and choke to death after Nov. 2nd.

Consistently stupid.

Doug's post from over two weeks ago perfectly summarizes the stupidity of the Kerry-Edwards approach to dealing with Iranian nuclear ambitions.

Surprisingly, as you may note from Doug's post on Edwards' explanation of their plan, Kerry has actually remained consistent on an issue for longer than 2 weeks now (as demonstrated during last night's debate).

Consistently stupid.

But consistent nonetheless.
