Testing, One, Two...

Sorry about the recent inactivity...

The past couple of weeks, I have been busier than a one-armed Chainsaw Juggler (I'll explain later.)

Keep checking by, and in a day or two, I will once again resume my attempt to explain the world, and point out all the stuff the rest of you may have missed.

Just not quite yet.

Still got other things to focus on.

Bear with me, please.

Sleeping With The Enemy...

In an amazing display of Bi-partisanship and cooperation, Nancy Pelosi has decided to support Rep. John "Jack" Murtha for the position of Majority Leader in the 110th Congress.

In a letter released by Murtha's office, Pelosi told the Pennsylvania congressman that his surprise call for the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq in 2005 "changed the national debate and helped make Iraq the central issue of this historic election."

"Your leadership gave so many Americans, including respected military leaders, the encouragement to voice their own disapproval at a failed policy that weakens our military and makes stability in that region even more difficult to achieve," she wrote.

Refresh my memory...

What was the final vote in the House on Murtha's idea to cut and run in Iraq?

Murtha has been one of the most divisive figures in the History of American Politics. He is the poster boy for "Victory through Retreat" War strategy.

Last year, he asserted that U.S. Marines went crazy and began executing innocent Iraqi Citizens in the village of Haditha, and now, more than a year later, he has yet to apologize for those remarks, even though no charges have ever been filed, and no Marine has been convicted of wrongdoing in the Haditha Incident.

He has done everything he could think of to undermine the War effort, and continues to do so.

He is also the second most famous Un-Indicted Co-Conspirator in History (The MOST famous was Richard Nixon) because of his entanglement in the ABSCAM Corruption and Bribery investigation.

Had he not turned State's Evidence, he would be in Prison.

It's not like Pelosi had no other choice...

Rep. Steny Hoyer is also vying for the position of House Majority Leader, but Pelosi doesn't like him.

Now, Hoyer is a Liberal, so he would not be my personal first choice for Majority Leader.

But as far as I can tell, he is a CLEAN Liberal, and does not openly call for America's defeat in the War in Iraq.

He is far and away more desirable in that position than Murtha. (To everyone but Nancy Pelosi.)

Murtha is not the only crook that Pelosi has openly embraced...

She has rejected Rep. Jane Harman for the position of Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in favor of Rep. Alcee Hastings, who was Impeached from the Federal Bench for accepting Bribes in 1992. ( A man who has proven himself to be bribable as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee? Does that sound like a good idea to you?)

Aparently, she has chosen to use her Broom to gather the trash from the floor of the House, and put it all into positions of Leadership.


The truth is, I want her to have who she wants, in whatever position of power she wants to place them.

She is not interested in Bi-Partisanship, and neither should the Republicans be.

I don't want my Representatives attempting to work with Pelosi, because I think that she is wrong. Wrong about everything from what the Constitution says, to Military Strategy, to Economics to Human Nature.

And a compromise with Wrong means accepting a degree of Wrong, and agreeing with Wrong.

I want the next two years to show in graphic detail the differences between Conservative Republicans, and Liberal Democrats.

There is no place for Moderates on either side.

Not now.

Believe what you believe, and believe it out loud, and do not apologize, whatever it is that you believe.

Do not back down under any circumstances.

When you get into bed with your enemies, you get screwed, and that's all you get.

Mystery Quote...

I'm going to borrow a trick from D.Daddio Al-Ozarka.

Who said this?

"We are at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it has been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening."

Great quote, huh?

New Tone...

The President met with Nancy Pelosi today.

They both pledged to extend the hand of Bi-Partisanship, and to work together to solve the problems that America faces.

Well, I guess it would do her good to try new things.

I don't buy it.

She has already stated that any Democrat who cooperated with Republicans on anything during the 109th Congress will be denied a position of significance in the 110th. (Even if disgraced, impeached bribe-takers get the job instead.)

I think the President is blowing it, big time.

He has an opportunity which has never before presented itself in the History of the World.

As a matter of fact, the outgoing Republican controlled Legislature has a similar opportunity.

Here's what they should do.

First, the Congress and Senate should call an Emergency session and De-Fund the War.

Then they should repeal the Tax Cuts. ALL of them.

After that, they should repeal Medicare Part B, No Child Left Behind, and the Highway Bill.

Then they should adjourn, and the President should, through Recess Appointment, install every single Judicial Nominee he has ever wanted, and then expand the Supreme Court to Twenty Justices, all by Recess Appointment. (There is nothing in the Constitution defining how many Justices can or should be on the Supreme Court, and the President has the power, NAY! The RESPONSIBILITY to nominate Judges and SC Justices.)

THEN, the President should address the Nation, on Christmas Eve on Television from the Oval Office. (I would even set it for 8:00 pm, and stroll in at 8: 05, and force every network to show five minutes of my empty chair.)

And here is how it should go.

(The President walks into the room, crosses between the desk and cameras, nonchalantly tosses a small box and a Manila Folder onto the desk, and sits down.)

"My Fellow Americans:

"When I first took office in January of 2001, I attempted to bring a 'New Tone' to Washington, a new spirit of cooperation and harmony between the two major Political Parties which I had hoped would help our Nation move past the unpleasantness we all endured during the previous Administration.

"It was my desire to advance an agenda which would represent the Voters who sent me here, while also giving a legitimate voice to the Minority Party, so that each and every American would recieve their fair share of Representation in Washington, as is their right as Citizens of this great Nation.

"I have been met with hatred, slander, obstruction, and sabotage at every turn from the Democrat Party.

"They have opposed me, virtually in lock-step, on my Judicial Nominees, my Tax Initiatives to strengthen and grow our Economy, my programs and efforts to uncover the plans of those around the World who have declared War against this Great Nation, and have even accused me and my administration, and even our Troops, of War Crimes for doing the things that we found necessary, if unpleasant, to attempt to keep the Citizens of the United States safe from attack on our own Soil.

"On November 7th, the American People went to the polls, and voted. They chose to turn the gavels of power over to the Democrats who have systematically stood in the way of each and every thing that I, and the Republicans in the House and Senate have attempted to do, In spite of my attempts to reach out to them, and cooperate.

"So, Tonight, I have come before you to announce that that the 'New Tone' is no more. The Voters have spoken, and I have heard you.

"This Election has shown me that the American People do not want the things that I tried to institute, so over the past few days, I and the outgoing Legislature have un-done everything we passed since I took office.

"The other thing that I learned in November is that the American People actually LIKE the tactics of Obstructionism and Divisive Partisanship. After all, the party that has used these tactics for the last six years was rewarded with a Majority in Both Houses of Congress.

"In this box are One Hundred brand new Ink Pens, and they only write one word.


"I solemnly promise to VETO every single piece of Legislation that reaches my desk until the end of my Presidency.

"On the very last day I am in office, I will Veto something, on Television.

"While the American People saw fit to give the Democrat Party, which Vetoed my 'New Tone' of cooperation, the reigns of Power for the next two years, they evidently did NOT see fit to give them Veto Proof Majorities in either House.

"There is one other issue that I must address, and then I will let you go back to watching 'Deal or No Deal', and that is the issue of my Manilla Folder here.

"In this Folder, I have a Blanket Presidential Pardon. It applies to War Crimes committed in Afghanistan and Iraq, and covers each and every person who has been, currently is, or ever will be accused, investigated, or convicted of War Crimes as a result of my use of the U.S. Military during my Presidency, from the lowliest Private on the ground, right on up to myself.

"I will now sign this document, here in plain view of the American People... (signs the Paper, and then holds it up for the cameras...) as is my right and privilege as President of the United States. So, now we will not be bothered by useless investigations, subpoenas, or Impeachment Hearings, and the Incoming Democrat Legislature can get about the business of drafting Legislation for me to Veto.

"To those of you who have supported me, I thank you.

"To the rest of you, who have stood in my way since the beginning of my Presidency, have fun choking down the excrement sandwich you yourselves have taught me so well how to serve up.

"Thank you, and Good Night."

The Real Message...

What a predicament.

Nancy Pelosi went out and bought herself enough "Conservative Democrat" Candidates to ensure herself a position as Speaker of the House, Control of the Senate hinges on less than 6500 votes in Virginia, and today, the President came out and switched Parties.

Donald Rumsfeld will be beheaded at dawn Tommorrow, and John Bolton and Condi Rice will most likely be dealt with next week.

Dick Cheney is safe because he shoots back.

I cannot describe to you the feeling of absolute disgust and betrayal that I felt today as I listened to the President, with his Lame Duck Tail tucked firmly between his legs, begging the Democrats not to impeach him, and promising to do whatever they want for the next two years.

But then again, I can't really blame him. How many of us could have withstood the rehtorical beating the President has taken for the last six years?

The Voters have spoken.

We love Democrats now.

War is too horrible, whether it is declared ON US, or BY US. It costs too much to win, it is too bloody, too unpleasant.

It is too hard to take responsibility for our OWN well being, we need help from Government.

The Economy really is much too strong, and all of this success is bad for Democrats. Success on a National Level does not create enough victims.

We rich people who make at least $25,000.00 per year don't really need to keep more of our own money. The Evil Corporations for which we work do not really need to make a profit, they only exist to provide jobs, and the CEO really does make way too much money.

We Americans really do want to pay for one another's health care, whether there is any money left over in our paychecks for groceries or not.

Illegal Immigrants really should be forgiven, and given all of the Rights afforded bona-fide American Citizens, no matter how many of them there are, or what it does to our Country. After all, Mexican Style Socialism really isn't that bad. The Illegals should be allowed to vote it in here if they want. I mean, they tried so hard and overcame so many obstacles to come here illegally...

And the President MUST be impeached, because since Bill Clinton, ALL Presidents must always be impeached, from now on.

After all, the Liberal Agenda won, didn't it?

No, it didn't.

The Democrats who won Yesterday ran as "Blue Dog" Democrats, or Conservative Democrats, and the whole turn-around was decided by about 50,000 votes total, Nation Wide.
That's hardly a Mandate.

At least not a Mandate for the kind of changes that the Democrats have planned for our Country.

The Republicans lost Yesterday because they got too comfortable with Power. They became more interested in retaining Power than they were in LEADING.

They were more interested in what the New York Times had to say about them than they were in what their constituents expected when we elected them.

They ran on the concept of Limited Government, and then passed the largest Entitlement Program in American History.

And we threw the Bums out.

My biggest regret is that we failed to remove all of the Fecal Matter from the Conservative Punchbowl.

And I am afraid that the wrong message has been transmitted to the remaining floaters. I'm afraid that John McCain will believe that Americans want more Moderate Behavior.

More Centrism.


This Country leans RIGHT.

The Democrats understand this, they just don't care. They believe that the American Voter does not really know what is best for us, so they pretend to be Conservatives in order to get elected, and then once installed in office, they elect Nancy Pelosi, and her "San Francisco Liberal" Agenda to the position of Leadership.

That is not what most Americans want, no matter what the outcome of Yesterday's Elections.

Denny Hastert needs to go. John McCain needs to go.

We need new blood, new faces, new LEADERS. We need spokesmen who can articulate the Conservative Message in a forceful and understandable way.

We need a new Ronald Reagan, and a new Newt Gingrich.

The real message of Yesterday's Elections is this:

Conservatism WINS, every time it's tried.

No matter who tries it.

Take That, Republicans!

Well, the Democrats took the House of Representatives.

This is what elected Republicans get for forgetting why we sent them to Washington in the first place.

So, now, for the next two years, we only get to discuss whatever legislation is important to Nancy Pelosi.

So get ready.

There will be subpoenas, investigations, hearings and inquiries.

The Minimum Wage will go up, and so will the cost of everything you need to buy.

We will finally be able to get that un-naturally low National Unemployment number back up to where it needs to be.

Take your money out of your 401k Tommorrow, and buy CD's with it. (Certificates of Deposit, not Compact Disks of Carrie Underwood or K-Fed.)

Buy a Handgun (preferably from a street-corner dealer, so that it cannot be traced) , put it in a zip-lock bag and bury it in your yard. Erect a small cross over it with "Rover" painted on it, so that you can find it quickly.

The "Viet-Namization" of Iraq will begin soon, and America will once again show the World that we cannot be trusted to finish what we start, and that we no longer have the collective stomach to win in armed conflict.

There is some good news, though...

If you and your Wife both make $25,000 or more per year, you are now "The Rich". (As defined by the dominant Party in the U.S. House of Representatives.)

You will soon get the privilege of footing the bill for Bill Gates' Health Care.

I want them to run Hog Wild.

Go ahead, Dems. Do ALL of the things that the Daily KOS crowd wants.

I want voting, thinking, informed Americans to go ahead and get a Belly Full of Democrats, once and for all.

You have two years. Make it count.

Let's hope that the President can find his VETO Pen before things get too far out of hand, and that the Republican Party will learn from this situation.

The American People did not allow the Democrats to win the House because they wanted Democrats in charge, they allowed it to happen because it has become too difficult to tell the difference.

So Congratulations, America!

You voted for "Change", well you're going to get it.

Enjoy it. Love it. Learn from it.

This will indeed be a hard lesson.

Bush Didn't Lie, Nobody Died.

At least not as a result of Iraqi WMD anyway.

This was on the front page of the Newspaper Of Wreckage Yesterday.

U.S. Web Archive Is Said to Reveal a Nuclear Primer

Last March, the federal government set up a Web site to make public a vast archive of Iraqi documents captured during the war. The Bush administration did so under pressure from Congressional Republicans who had said they hoped to “leverage the Internet” to find new evidence of the prewar dangers posed by Saddam Hussein.

And it worked.

The story goes on to explain how the website published documents captured in Iraq that could possibly help Nations like Iran in their quest for WMD.

Way down at the bottom of the first page of the article, we find this paragraph:

Among the dozens of documents in English were Iraqi reports written in the 1990s and in 2002 for United Nations inspectors in charge of making sure Iraq had abandoned its unconventional arms programs after the Persian Gulf war. Experts say that at the time, Mr. Hussein’s scientists were on the verge of building an atom bomb, as little as a year away.

"We need to give the Inspectors more time to do their jobs!!" the Libs screamed.

"We shouldn't rush to War!" they howled.

"There were never any WMD!" they chanted.

Yes there were.

And there would have been more, and worse ones had the President listened to the "loyal opposition".

This is only the latest in a long string of revelations that have proven over and over that President Bush has been right all along.

About ALL of it.

From the War on Terror, to the Tax Cuts, to Iraq.


And all of his opponents, caught up in the throes of their hatred and animosity, were WRONG.

What would the World look like if we had listened to the Democrats for only one more year?

What will the World look like in a year if we listen to them now?

God help us if we let them take the House or Senate on Tuesday.

What I Meant to Say Was...

John Kerry has issued a formal apology for his statements on Monday, which have largely been interpreted as derogatory toward members of the U.S. Military.

Here it is, straight from his website, (A site that I am sure most of you, as well as most Military people frequent at least once a day...)

"I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I sincerely apologize to any Service Member, family member, or American who was offended."

In other words...

(Paraphrasing...) "I'm sorry that all of you are too stupid to understand what I was trying to say, and I apologize for the fact that you got offended by what you thought I said."

Is that good enough for you?

Is John Kerry forgiven?

Are you ready once again to vote for him for the Presidency of the United States?

I am not actually that upset over this gaffe. You see, I understood what he was trying to say.

I GOT the joke.

Kerry was not talking about the U.S. Military. He was not trying to say that if you are stupid, if you don't do your homework in school, if you don't get a good education, then you might end up being a stupid soldier, stuck against your will in Iraq. That's not what he meant at all...

Let me lay it out for you.

What John Kerry was trying to say on Monday Night was:

"Geroge Bush did not do his homework on the subject of Iraq. George Bush did not study hard, did not learn about the attitudes and customs of the people of Iraq, did not learn all he needed to know about Iraq before he foolishly rushed off to War against Saddam Hussein, and as a result, we are ALL stuck in the quagmire that is Iraq. Don't fall into a similar trap yourself."

The problem that Kerry encountered was that this is too broad a concept to be shortened down to one quick sentence which could hold the attention of a room full of College Students.

It absolutely won't fit onto a Bumper Sticker.

Now, do I believe that Kerry actually meant to call each and every American Serviceman currently stationed in Iraq an uneducated Boob, stuck fighting a useless and unwinnable War against their will, eight days before the Mid-Term Elections?

No. I don't.

But the fact is, he did.

Whether he meant to or not.

His ACTUAL words were:

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq."

There is nothing about the President in that statement. That does not read like a botched joke.

And the truth is, if Rush Limbaugh or President Bush had said those exact words, everyone would have said, "Oh, he didn't mean that the way it sounded. He doesn't feel that way about our Soldiers, he was only illustrating absurdity by being absurd."

But this was John Kerry. The man who went to Viet-Nam for about four months, and upon returning, fought tooth and nail for the OTHER SIDE.

The man who voted for the 87 Billion Dollar Military Funding Bill, before he voted against it.

The man who said in a Presidential Debate that he believed that the U.S. should pass a "Global Test" before deciding to defend Herself.

The man responsible for statements like these:

"I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown," Kerry wrote. "We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply 'doing its job." (1972)

"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the--of--the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not
--Iraqis should be doing that." (2005)

And a host of other statements criminalizing, insulting, and demoralizing our Armed Forces.

So, in my opinion, whether Kerry meant to say what he actually said on Monday Night, he does think that.

Should we forgive him?

Well, he hasn't actually ASKED for forgiveness, has not disavowed all of the other horrible things he has said against the Military since the Viet-Nam War, and didn't actually apologize for what he said on Monday.

So, No. We shouldn't forgive him.

Kerry just wants this to all go away, so that he and the rest of the Democrats can get back to what he, and they, consider to be the most important task at hand, which is bashing Republicans, regaining Democrat Power by hook or by crook, and kicking the snot out of President Bush.

Sorry, Senator Kerry. I do not accept your "apology".

Neither should anyone else. You, Sir, are a self-important, condescending, elitist snob, unfit for higher office because you want to RULE rather than SERVE, and the sooner you are left by the wayside and forgotten, the better off America will be.

Along with your flawed and twisted ideology.

Phoney Baloney, Plastic Banana, Good Time Rock And Roll Birthday Party Gone Awry...The Clinton Legacy Continues...

Did you ever throw yourself a party, and nobody showed up?

Me neither.

If you did, were you asking the guests to pay a Half a Million Dollars each to attend?


Media Elites Snub Clinton’s 60th Birthday Party

This one is way too funny. Britain’s the Daily Mail reported on Saturday that the Clintons are having a hard time selling tickets to Bill’s upcoming 60th birthday party, so much so that they have now twice reduced the price. In fact, compared to what they were originally charging, in particular to Hollywood elites, prices have been drastically slashed, and are now being offered to the public (hat tip to Drudge):

When America's liberal elite were offered the chance to pay up to $500,000 each to attend Bill Clinton's 60th birthday extravaganza tonight - with the added promise of a private Rolling Stones concert - a packed house was expected.

Wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea sent out about 10,000 invitations to Hollywood tycoons, movie stars, captains of industry and Wall Street - with all proceeds to go to the former President's charitable foundation.
(The Clinton legal defense fund?)

Sadly for the Clintons, there weren’t a lot of takers:

The minimum price, with inferior concert seats and no brunch, was set at $60,000. But with many rich Democrats sending their regrets, The Mail on Sunday can reveal that last Wednesday the Clintons drastically slashed prices to $12,500 for one reception and the concert, or $5,000 for just the Stones.

It seems the new price didn’t attract many buyers either: “With the looming possibility of Bill and his long-suffering wife and daughter finding themselves amid a sea of empty chairs at the 2,900-seat Manhattan venue, tickets then went on sale to the public for as little as $1,710.“

And the article goes on to say that the Stones may not even show up, and they were going to get PAID to go. (Mick got sick, supposedly.)

(Well, that's not surprising. Mick is, what? 80 years old now?)

Still, I can imagine that there are still a couple of people in the World who would be willing to pay a Half a Million to see the Stones before Keith Richards dies, (if he hasn't yet.)

Apparently Hillary and Chelsea thought that there were 10,000.

Still, you have to feel a little sorry for former Nerd in Chief Bubba...

It's a real bummer when your Birthday Party flops.

Huhm huhm...Huhuhuh...HaHa HaHaHAAHAHAHA!!




Ahumn...humn humn...

Down With Rush Limbaugh!

From CBS

Michael J. Fox Responds To Limbaugh Accusation
Actor Responds To Claim He Was Off His Meds In Political Ad: 'My Pills Are Working Really Well'...

(CBS/AP) His body visibly wracked by tremors, actor Michael J. Fox appears in a political ad that was the subject of widespread discussion on Monday after conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh claimed Fox was "either off his medication or acting."

"I'm kind of lucky right now. It's ironic, given some of the things that have been said in the last couple days, that my pills are working really well," Fox said.

"I think this is exploitative in a way that's unbecoming of either Claire McCaskill or Michael J. Fox," Limbaugh said on his syndicated show.

(Democrat Congressional Candidate) Tammy Duckworth added of Limbaugh's remarks: "That comment is trying to take away from the real issue at hand."

What issue is that, Candidate Duckworth?

The issue that you and Michael J. Fox and Claire McKaskill are lying?

They are, you know.

They would all have you believe that a cure for Parkinson's disease, and for many other diseases, is right around the corner, and the only thing standing in the way of that cure is those Evil Republicans, who are only interested in making people suffer.

The truth is that Embryonic Stem Cell Research has shown ABSOLUTELY NO promise of curing ANY disease at all, nor has it shown any promise of aleviating anyone's suffering, AND the Bill that they are arguing over doesn't criminalize the research in the first place. (It just doesn't fund the research with Federal Money.)

They are LYING.

And Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, and everyone else who might point out the fact that they are lying is supposed to sit down and keep their opinions to themselves, because Michael J. Fox has Parkinson's Disease.

Think about this scenario...

Let's say that some researchers believe that there is a chemical in the brains of Parkinson's Patients which could completely eliminate Miscarriages, but in order to extract this chemical, we have to remove the brains from the people afflicted with Parkinson's.

Not only that, but in order to obtain enough of this chemical to confirm the theories of these researchers, we must create more Parkinson's Patients, simply for the purpose of removing thier brains.

If only it were legal to afflict people with new cases of Parkinson's Disease, and then remove their brains, then Millions of Human Embryos would be saved, and permitted to grow to maturity. The pain and suffering of all the women who now have miscarriages would be eased.

And one of these Embryos which would be miscarried without this research could possibly grow up to become the scientist who discovers a cure for Alzhiemers Disease. (I mean, you wouldn't want to disregard a possible cure for Alzhiemers, just because you would have to destroy a few Parkinson's Patients in order to get it, now, would you?)

How much support do you think the proponents of this research would get?

Do you think that the Democrat Party would sanction this type of research, or use it in their Political Campaign Ads?

What is the real difference between my scenario, and the reality of Embryonic Stem Cell Research?

The fact that Parkinson's Patients can speak out against this type of thing, and Embryos cannot?

Is the only real difference the size of the blob of Human Tissue?

Rush is right.

There are no sacred cows, not even victims of Disease.

Not even Michael J. Fox.

Happy Anniversary!!

Today is my Wife's and My 100th Wedding Anniversary.

(Actually, it's only our third, but it seems like a hundred.)

In three short years, we have clung to each other through a horrible and almost career ending truck wreck, her Mother's heart attack and the eventual passing of her Mother, a 600 mile relocation from North Carolina to Florida, a very painful back injury for me, four Hurricanes, poverty, sickness, a miscarriage, and more poverty.

We have also enjoyed each other's company on various trips to Universal Studios, Disney World, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

We have discussed the nature of God, the State of the Union, the price of Gasoline, the value of a Dollar, the nature of love, the Biblical Roles of men and women, the cuteness of the dog, the weather, humidity, the time of day, plans for the future, baby names, the housing market, our nutty friends and family, computer viruses, television shows, medical problems, the height of the grass in the yard.

We have worked on cars together, washed and dried the dishes, done laundry, repaired the house, ate, slept, and bathed together.

She is everything in this world that is important to me, and I cannot imagine my life without her.

I've got her fooled into thinking that I am wonderful, and that she needs me, and could never do better than me. (Don't ask me how.)

The truth is that I do not deserve her, and I am nothing without her.

She could have done a WHOLE lot better than me, but don't tell her that.

I neded to keep her fooled for at least a hundred more years.

Happy Anniversary, Baby!

I love you VERY much!

Get Out The Vote!

From News Busters...

NY Times on Republican Extinction Week Again

The (Liberal Blog known as the) New York Times is doing its best to convince Republicans that they should stay home on Election Day, because after all, “With four weeks left before Election Day, the poll indicates that the scandal involving Mr. Foley, a former Republican congressman from Florida, is alienating Americans from Congress, and weakening a Republican Party that was already struggling to keep control of the House and Senate.”

The (Liberal Blog known as the) New York Times comes to this conclusion based on the recently released NY Times (Blog) – CBS opinion poll despite the fact that that two-thirds in the poll said the Foley matter will make “no difference” in how they vote (as reported by Brent Baker earlier).

A quick read of the NY Times release of the poll indicates that the poll itself is actually a referendum on Republicans and George Bush rather than an evenly spaced set of questions that are meant to determine how Americans think of the Democrats as well.

For instance, on the questions concerning the Mark Foley scandal not one of them asks what the Democrats knew ahead of time or how Democrats handled the scandal.

Yet questions 53, 54, 55, 88, 56, 57, 58, 59 and 60 are all about the way the House leadership handled the scandal.

The implication in this set of questioning is along the same lines as the week long theme in the MSM that has been intent on making the Republican leadership the focus of the Mark Foley scandal rather than Mr. Foley himself.

In other words, Democrats and the Liberal Blog known as the New York Times hope that a large number of Republicans stay home on Election Day because of the Foley Scandal, among other issues.

They seek to depress Republican turnout at the Polls.

This means that the Democrats and their Blog would rather win by default than to actually have a mandate to Govern, and are willing to disenfranchise Republican Voters through exagerated Scandals and misrepresentation of the Truth in order to regain their power.

Don't fall for it.

Election day is November 7th. (If you are a Republican. Election Day for Democrat Voters is November 8th.)

Do not let the Lies and misrepresentations of the Democrats and thier Blogs in the MSM rob you of your voice.

Do not throw in the towel because of the propaganda of the Liberal Press.

Go out on November 7th and make your opinions known.

(Unless you are a Democrat. If you are, then November 8th is your day.)

Constituent's Letter To Senator Paul Sarbanes (D. Maryland)

I found this at Strange Politics, via

A letter sent to a Senator:
The Honorable Paul S. Sarbanes 309 Hart Senate Office Building Washington DC, 20510

Dear Senator Sarbanes:

As a native Marylander and excellent customer of the Internal Revenue Service, I am writing to ask for your assistance.

I have contacted the Immigration and Naturalization Service in an effort to determine the process for becoming an illegal alien and they referred me to you.

My reasons for wishing to change my status from U.S. citizen to illegal alien stem from the bill which was recently passed by the Senate and for which you voted.

If my understanding of this bill's provisions is accurate, as an illegal alien who has been in the United States for five years, what I need to do to become a citizen is to pay a $2,000 fine and income taxes for three of the last five years.

I know a good deal when I see one and I am anxious to get the process started before everyone figures it out.

Simply put, those of us who have been here legally have had to pay taxes every year, so I'm excited about the prospect of avoiding two years of the last five years taxes in return for paying a $2,000 fine.

Is there any way that I can apply to be illegal retroactively?

This would yield an excellent return for me and my family because we paid heavy taxes in 2004 and 2005 and I estimated a gross savings approximating $72,000.

After the fine this would yield me a net savings of $70,000.

In addition, I would reap the other benefits of being an illegal alien such as free health care, avoidance of paying Social Security taxes, buying automobile insurance, serving on jury panels, etc.

If you would provide me with an outline of the process to become illegal (retroactively if possible) and copies of the necessary forms, I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for your assistance.

Your Loyal Constituent

Submitted by Glenn O.

Sounds good to me.

I think I'll do it too.

I mean, I wouldn't even lose my right to Vote, as long as I promise to Vote Democrat...

Culture Of Correction...

Think back, waaaay back in your memory banks, and see if you can recall the Mark Foley Scandal.

When the Foley Scandal broke, the same DAY it broke, Mark Foley resigned his Congressional Seat, and disappeared.

When Trent Lott was falsely accused of being a Racist by the Democrats because of a poorly worded compliment that he attempted to pay to Strom Thurman at Thurman's 100th Birthday Celebration, he stepped down as Senate Republican Leader, and apologized immediately.

"Scooter" Libby, upon being indicted for purgery before a Grand Jury, (the same crime that Bill Clinton was convicted of...) resigned his post, and began preparations for his defense, even though the same Grand Jury concluded that no crime was committed in connection with the Valerie Plame-Wilson incident. Libby has yet to be convicted of any crime, and yet he has resigned.

Tom DeLay, amid accusations of impropriety in Campaign Funding, even though what he actually did was not technically illegal when he did it, nonetheless resigned his position as Majority Whip, and his Congressional Seat, and has elected not to run again for his Congressional Seat in November even though his decision has left the people in his district with no Republican Candidate on the Ballot in a district which has historically shown itself to be strongly Republican, and most certainly would have been a Republican win, were there a Republican running.

Now, look at this.

From AP NEWS My Way, via The Drudge Report...

AP Exclusive: Reid Got $1M in Land Sale

WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.

The Nevada Democrat's deal was engineered by Jay Brown, a longtime friend and former casino lawyer whose name surfaced in a major political bribery trial this summer and in other prior organized crime investigations.

He's never been charged with wrongdoing - except for a 1981 federal securities complaint that was settled out of court.

Now, look at this...(Click on the link...)

This is a chart, published by the L.A. Times, which shows Harry Reid's involvement in various shady deals over the past few years, which have made virtually his whole family, and everyone he knows, wildly rich. (This chart does not include this latest deal, in which Re9id clearly manipulated Government Regulations and local Politicians and policies in order to increase the value of a property in which HE PERSONALLY had a stake.)

But don't hold your breath waiting for Reid to resign, or apologize.

He is a Democrat.

Only Republicans do that.

Democrats deny, defend, justify, and claim not to remember. And until the hancuffs are on their wrists and they are being led away to jail, the Democrats cling to their power.

Remember this fact whenever you hear any Democrat refer to a "culture of corruption" in connection to the Republicans who now hold the Majority in Washington.

Remember the phrase "Culture Of Correction" ( and credit it to me, Tugboatcapn,) when you hear of North Korea testing a Nuclear Weapon, for which the Nuclear Material required was supplied by the Clinton Administration.

Remember that phrase when you consider the fact that Terrorism, for the entirety of the Clinton Administration, was either ignored, or treated as a "Law Enforcement" issue, and subsequently was allowed to fester until the 9/11 attacks became inevitable.

Remember it when you think about the fact that due to Democrat obstructionism, nothing has yet been done to reform the Social Security system.

Remember it when you realize that Clinton, by his own admission, FAILED in his feeble attempts to kill Osama Bin Laden, and when you then realize that the Bush Administration has accomplished the only thing that would be considered a more horrible fate than death to Bin Laden. He has been rendered irrellevant, without even the benefit of Martyrdom.

Republicans take responsibility for their own mistakes, and attempt to clean up the messes created by Democrats, while Democrats point fingers, deny responsibility, and try to redefine the word "is", all the while holding on to power as tightly as they can, no matter what the decent thing to do may be.

Harry Reid is crooked, and that is not new information.

He should follow the example already set by the few scandal-ridden Republicans, and resign, whether he is guilty of any wrong-doing, or not.

He should take this opportunity to make himself a part of the "Culture Of Correction" that the Republicans have fostered in Washington.

Once again, don't hold your breath.

Sydney's Football Picks

My wife and I have become involved in Football Pools where we both work.

With rare exception, her picks and mine are pretty much the same, so when one of us loses, we both lose.

So last week, I decided to let our dog, Sydney, try his luck at picking NFL Football winners.

The system goes like this.

I take two paper plates. I put equal amounts of Macaroni and cheese on each one, and write a team name on each plate while she entertains Sydney in the back bedroom.

I put the two plates down side by side, and she releases the dog.

Whichever plate he goes to first is his pick.

Last week, he went 1 and 13.

His picks for this week are:

Buffalo over Detroit

Carolina over Baltimore

Tampa Bay over Cincinnati

Houston over Dallas

Atlanta over the NY Giants

Philadelphia over New Orleans

Seattle over St Louis

Tennessee over Washington

Pittsburgh over Kansas City

Miami over the NY Jets

San Diego over San Francisco

Oakland over Denver

And for the Monday Night game, he picked Arizona to beat Chicago.

Take this for what it is worth. He is a dog, after all, and his understanding of Football is questionable at best.

Plop, Plop, Fizz Fizz...

Nuclear test 'Equivalent to 550 tons of TNT'

North Korea’s potential nuclear test was equivalent to 550 tons of TNT, a state-run South Korean geological institute said, which would be far smaller than the nuclear bombs dropped on Japan in the Second World War.

“It amounts to detonating 550 tons of trinitrotoluene, or TNT, at once,” said Park Chang-soo, a spokesman of the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources.

Looks like North Korea's Nuclear weapon test was about as successful as their ICBM test back in July...

From the information that I have been able to find, it seems that North Korea should just about be able to blow up a Dog House, as long as it is within a 400 mile radius of the launch pad.


See me shake...

Katie's Slip Is Showing...


NEW YORK - The fifth week was the toughest for Katie Couric, whose viewership on the "CBS Evening News" has dropped each week since her debut the day after Labor Day.

Her broadcast averaged 7.04 million viewers last week, third to NBC's "Nightly News" (8.56 million) and ABC's "World News" (7.97 million), according to Nielsen Media Research.

CBS points out that the "CBS Evening News" is the only one of the three network newscasts with more viewers last week than the same week a year earlier.

NBC's margin of victory last year was 2.2 million.

The first week, she, and the bigwigs at CBS News thought that just her pretty smile would cause viewers to tune in and stay tuned.

They all soon realized that it would not take very long for people to know what she looked like.

Then she thought that she could attract and hold viewers simply by doing the last segment every night lounging on top of the news desk like some singer in a seedy Piano Bar, but evidently it isn't working.

Starting next week, she is planning to pull her dress up and hold it over her head for thirty seconds somewhere during each News Cast.

I think it will work...

Thank God that Dan Rather never thought of it...

Educational Opportunities...

Hey, guess what?

Mark Foley is Gay!

Really, he said so! Today! I heard him!

So far, we have learned over the past week that Mark Foley sent E-Mails to a 16 year old former Congressional page. Then we learned that he sent Instant Messages, some of which were suggestive in nature.

Then we learned that Republicans resign from their positions when they become entangled in scandals like this one.

Since then, we have learned that Foley is an Alcoholic, that he was abused by a Clergyman when he was a teenager, and now that he is Gay.

And today, I learned that this whole thing is Denny Hastert's fault, and that ALL Republicans should resign because... why?

Because Foley is Gay? Because he likes Teen Boys? Because he knows how to send E-mails and Instant Messages over the internet? Because Republicans in Florida unwittingly elected an Alcoholic Gay Molestation Victim to represent them, and Hastert did nothing about it?

Just what exactly are we supposed to think here, Libs?

Does anyone but me realize that if one of our Supreme Court Justices, nominated by Bill (You better put some ice on that...) Clinton had had her way, the age of sexual consent would have been dropped to TWELVE, and none of Foley's actions would have been illegal?

We have learned a lot.

But what we will learn between now and the Election will be the interesting stuff. Be sure to pay close attention, so you won't miss any of it.

For example:

If we pay attention over the next few days and weeks, we will learn whether the Libs hate Republicans more than they respect the rights of Gays.

We will learn whether or not the ACLU will come to the defense of a Republican Congressman accused of some of the same offenses that they have already defended.

We will learn whether or not the American Public are so gullible and shallow that they will vote away their National Security and growing Economy because they would rather embrace Homophobia, and Tabloid Journalism than make hard choices about real issues which will affect their everyday lives for decades to come.

These are the important lessons of these next few weeks.

Study hard. There will be a test.

A tough one.

Republicans Suck!

From ABC news...

New Foley Instant Messages; Had Internet Sex While Awaiting House Vote
October 03, 2006 1:22 PM

Former Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) interrupted a vote on the floor of the House in 2003 to engage in Internet sex with a high school student who had served as a congressional page, according to new Internet instant messages provided to ABC News by former pages.

ABC News now has obtained 52 separate instant message exchanges, which former pages say were sent by Foley, using the screen name Maf54, to two different boys under the age of 18.

This message was dated April 2003, at approximately 7 p.m., according to the message time stamp.

If you really are interested in reading the Instant Messages, they are included in the article. Just follow the link.

I personally don't care.

First of all, let me state for the record that I do not in any way approve of Mark Foley's actions in this matter, nor do I have any patience with anyone, on either side of the aisle, who may have known about this situation, and either covered it up in order to avoid political embarrasment for themselves, or their party, or who may have known about it and sat on the information for a strategic release to spoil the upcoming elections.

Foley is at least a Homosexual, and at worst a Pedophile. In both cases, we have heard, ad-nauseum, from the same people who are now condemning Foley, that both Homosexuality and Pedophilia are conditions over which the (victim? perpetrator? sufferer?) person... has no control. Either he is predisposed toward his sexual orientation and can do nothing about his behaviour, or he is sick, and needs help to overcome his problem, and to know which, we would need to know whether he thought of this page as a child, or just a hot young Gay guy.

I don't care about Foley. He resigned. He doesn't matter anymore.

My anger is now turned full force against those who have attempted, and are now attempting to use this load of Hogwash for Political Advantage.

To any Democrat who may happen to read this:

If you were to offer me proof that EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE was a racist Homosexual pedophile pornographer who had slept over at Jack Abramoff's house, and stolen Girl Scout Cookies from blind Cancer patients and that they all eat live, cute little puppies for breakfast every day...

That still is not going to cause me to forget that I believe that Tax Cuts stimulate the Economy, and that the War in Iraq and the War on Terror MUST be won, however long it takes and no matter how difficult it may be.

It will not make me forget that I believe that Big Businesses like Wal Mart have a right to do business in America using whatever business model they find to be profitable, and that the people who work for these businesses have a right not to work there if they find the arrangement to be unprofitable to them, whatever that arrangement may be.

It will not make me believe that a Bloated Government knows better how to spend the money that I earn than I do.

It will not cause me to forget that I believe that "The Rich" should have the exact same rights that "The Poor" have.

It will not make me believe that I should have to pay for YOUR Healthcare.

It would never cause me to vote for any candidate who has the wholesale murder, in utero, of innocent unborn babies as a plank in his or her campaign platform.

It would not make me forget what the Democrats would do to this Country, if given any real power.

It will not make me want to vote for a Democrat.

As a matter of fact, if you were to prove to me that House and Senate Republicans, to a man, are the very scum of the Earth, I would chalk it up to the "Inside The Beltway" culture, and contend that the Democrats are, to a man, just as bad.

They are all politicians, after all, and if you are planning to wait around for one of those without any skeletons in their closet, it's going to be a long wait.

Uh-Oh...Time for me to stop Blogging...

Heretic Moonbat has removed me from his Blog Roll.

I removed him from mine months ago.

According to him, we have reached a position of mutual disrespect, and I have apparently "gone completely off the deep end."

Well if I have, then he and I should certainly be seeing a lot more of each other from now on.

I used to consider him a friend, and I checked his Blog first every day. Back when I started Blogging, he posted about the events of the day from a position of slightly Left- Leaning common sense. I did not agree with everything he said, but I could at least see his point of view, and he would acknowledge mine, and we approached it all with an attitude of mutual respect and friendship.

But no more.

Shortly after Hurricane Katrina came ashore, ER decided to launch an all-out attack on everything Right Wing, and that included me.

About this same time, he began to attend one of the "churches" mentioned in Matthew 7:16, and he and I reached an impasse about the immutability of God, and the basic teachings of Jesus.

When I got tired of being preached to at every turn about why Jesus disagreed with my every opinion, I decided to ignore him.

And for the most part, I have. I will occasionally argue with him when he is being especially dense on other Blogs, but I have not visited his site in a very long time.

But the day before Yesterday, I decided to click over there, and to my surprise, I found that he had chosen to link to my post about the Clinton Death List.

Now, I have argued with this man about God, Jesus, the Meaning of Life, the Role of the Supreme Court in modern Society. We have had detailed and informative discussions about the ACLU, the United Nations, sex, drugs, and Rock-n-roll. We have talked about our dogs, cats, wives and girlfriends.

We have E-mailed prayer requests to each other.

But the one attack for which he could not forgive me was an attack against Bill Clinton.

That is the one Sacred Cow that he absolutely COULD NOT ABIDE anyone attacking. (Especially me.)

Goodbye, my former friend. I will miss (and have missed) your well informed and eloquently stated opinions and observations.

I am sorry that your hatred for the President and for me and those who agree with me on Political Issues has so overtaken you that you can no longer stand to see the name of my Blog on your sidebar.

I sincerely hope that we both have enough of it right that we will see each other again when none of this matters, and all of our questions have been answered.

I continue to pray for you.

I would ask you to do the same for me.

Clinton Failed. (HIS Words. Not Mine.)

Bill Clinton did an interview with Fox News Sunday Today with Chris Wallace.

In it, he talked about how hard he tried to get Osama Bin Laden.

WALLACE: Do you think you did enough, sir?

CLINTON: No, because I didn’t get him.


CLINTON: But at least I tried. That’s the difference in me and some, including all the right-wingers who are attacking me now. They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try. They did not try.
I tried.
So I tried and failed.

When I failed, I left a comprehensive anti-terror strategy and the best guy in the country, Dick Clarke, who got demoted.

Wow. Eight whole months. How long did Clinton have, again?

He tried and failed.

Well, when you hear him say that, remember these names:

Ron Brown
Mary Mahoney
Barbera Wise
Paula Grober
Suzanne Coleman
Hershell Friday
Judy Gibbs
Charle Meissner
William Robertson
William Densberger
Jeff Rhodes
Alan G. Whicher
Jim Wilhite
Gregory Collins
Kevin Ives
Don Henry
Berry Seal
Lance Herndon
Keith Coney
James Milam
Niko Jerkuic
Mike Boorda
Jordan Kettleson
Steve Dickson
Charles Wibourne Miller
James McDougal
Carlos Ghigliotti
Johnny Laughton
Terrance Yeakey
Calvin Walraven

Robert Williams
William Colby
Cpl. Eric S. Fox

Theodore Williams Jr.

These are the people who Clinton and his minions tried to kill and succeeded.

(NOTE: All of these names are links. Click on any one of them for information as to the circumstances of their deaths, and their connections to the Clintons and their dealings.)

The only reason that Osama Bin Laden is still alive ( if he is alive), and the only reason that 9/11 occured is that Bill Clinton did not consider him a personal enemy.

Had Bin Laden ever worked as a Clinton Body Guard, or had helped to arrange cricket capers for him while he was Governor of Arkansas, then Bin Laden would have been dead by the end of the Clinton Presidency.

Clinton was and is THE dirtiest President in American History, and the whole truth about him will NEVER come to light.

Cover-ups, Murder, Scandal, and Failure. THIS is the real Clinton Legacy.

And the Cover-ups continue, even now.

No matter what he says to try to re-write History in his own favor.

No matter how angry he gets.

Neither Elected, Nor Selected...Wonder Why?

From Rueters...

Gore says tax pollution, not payrolls...

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore on Monday suggested taxing carbon dioxide emissions instead of employees' pay in a bid to stem global warming.

"Penalizing pollution instead of penalizing employment will work to reduce that pollution," Gore said in a speech at New York University School of Law.

The pollution tax would replace all payroll taxes, including those for Social Security and unemployment compensation, Gore said. He said the overall level of taxation, would remain the same.

"Instead of discouraging businesses from hiring more employees it would discourage business from producing more pollution," Gore said.

What a Brilliant Idea!

Except for the fact that he is wrong about his plan discouraging businesses from hiring more employees (it would), and about the overall level of taxation remaining the same, (he is a Democrat, and would raise ALL taxes at every opportunity), and about the Pollution Tax replacing all payroll taxes including Socialist security and Unemployment Compensation ( it wouldn't), and about Global Warming being caused by carbon dioxide emmissions ( that has never been proven), he is right on target!

Aparently, Al Gore believes that Corporations are somehow profiting directly from the very act of polluting the environment, and that businesses will simply fork over all of their profits, and continue to employ Employees and produce products and provide services on a non profit basis, out of the goodness of their black, corporate hearts.

Aparently he believes that money simply materializes for American Businesses out of thin, polluted air.

Of all the dunder-headed, idiotic, lame-brained...


I have an even better idea...

According to Gore's own assertions, Global Warming is being caused by President Bush's (AND Clinton's, don't forget...) refusal to sign the Kyoto accords, and the reason that Corporations are able to destroy the atmosphere for profit in the first place is because of a lack of Government Regulations and Environmental Protection Programs.

So the whole problem of Global Warming is the fault of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, right?


We could completely eliminate all payroll taxes, as well as Socialist Security Taxes and Unemployment Compensation by making the Government pay them!

The overall Tax Rate could remain the same, only it would be paid from the Federal Treasury instead of coming from the wages of Working Americans!

Go ahead and laugh.

My plan makes as much sense as Gore's does.

Oh! Be sure to rush right out next year and pick up a copy of Gore's new book, "The Assault On Reason."

At last he has decided to write about a subject on which he is a genuine expert!

Trouble Brewing...

From the Washington Post...

Major Problems At Polls Feared...
Some Officials Say Voting Law Changes And New Technology Will Cause Trouble

An overhaul in how states and localities record votes and administer elections since the Florida recount battle six years ago has created conditions that could trigger a repeat -- this time on a national scale -- of last week's Election Day debacle in the Maryland suburbs, election experts said.

In a polarized political climate, in which elections are routinely marked by litigation and allegations of incompetent administration or outright tampering, some worry that voting problems could cast a Florida-style shadow over this fall's midterm elections.

A Florida-style shadow over this fall's Midterm Elections?

This can mean only one thing...

Democrats expect to Lose in this Fall's Midterm Elections. They are already gearing up for Legal Challenges to refute the outcome of the upcoming elections. They are laying the groundwork for their efforts to subvert the will of the American People and regain their power through the Court System, just like they tried to do in 2000.

Do you want to know what happened in 2000?

I can tell you...

I live here, among the people who caused all the trouble in 2000, and it is perfectly clear to me...

Here it is...

From Central Florida News 13...

Women Trapped In Car...

Two elderly women are recovering from heat stroke and heat exhaustion after locking themselves in a hot car in Daytona Beach.

Police say their battery apparently died, the automatic locks failed, and they didn't know they could unlock the doors manually.

The women were trapped for nearly two hours before a passerby spotted their plea for help, which they wrote on the back of a tissue box.

Rescue workers smashed a window to get the ladies out.

These are Florida Voters.

We insist in America on having our Elected Leaders be chosen by people who are too stupid to figure out Car Door Locks, when their very lives depend on it.

When you hear of the challenges to the election results in the upcoming Midterms, and when you hear people saying that George W. Bush was "selected, not elected", remember this fact...

Republicans do not challenge Election Results, at least they haven't yet.

Democrats are the ones who stand up for the voting rights of the Stupid, and Uninformed.

Voting in Elections to choose our leaders is more than just a right, it is a responsibility.

But the responsibility is for more than just voting.

If you vote, you have a responsibility to be informed, and to be intelligent enough to work the equipment. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure that YOU vote for the person that you intended to vote for.

And to know WHY you wanted to vote for that person.

If you are too stupid to use the voting machine, or if you know nothing about your candidate other than their Party Affiliation, then do us all a favor, and just stay home.

If you will not do your homework, then please don't make things worse.

Well, DUH!

From the Daily Mail...

Men are more intelligent than women, claims new study...

It is research that is guaranteed to delight men - and infuriate the women in their lives. A controversial new study has claimed that men really are more intelligent than women.

The study - carried out by a man - concluded that men's IQs are almost four points higher than women's.

A focus on a factors such as the ability to quickly grasp a complex concept, verbal reasoning skills and creativity - some of they key ingredients of intelligence - revealed the male teenagers had IQs that were an average of 3.63 points higher. The average person has an IQ of around 100.

The average person has an IQ of around 100 points?

That explains a whole lot of the World's problems right there!

This study is not a surprize to me at all. I have always known that men are smarter than women.

No question about it.

Perhaps this study is misleading, though...

It is clear that men and women process information in completely different ways.

Ask most men if their car gets good gas mileage, and they will tell you how many miles they drove, and how many gallons of gasoline it took to re-fill the gas tank.

Miles, divided by gallons, equals gas mileage.

Ask most women the same question, and they will tell you when they last filled the tank, recount in detail everywhere they have been since then, and how much gas is still in the tank.

"I filled it up on Wednesday, and I went to Mama's, and to Wal*Mart, and J.C. Penney's, and to Sonic and got a Cheese Coney and some Tots, and then I went to work Thursday and Friday, and then to Marsha's house to see the new baby, and then back to Mama's on Saturday morning, and back home...and I've still got a quarter of a tank left!"

Try it.

But then again, that really is not a measure of intelligence, but rather a demonstration of the difference in priorities for men and women.

Why anyone would be stupid enough to pick this particular fight is beyond me.

What, exactly, did the researchers hope to gain by studying this particular subject?

The right to stick their thumbs in their ears, stick out their tongues at the girls, and sneer, "Nyah Nyah Nyah Nyaaah Nyah!...Boys are smaaaarter than Girls!!", maybe?

They shouldn't have wasted their time.

My Wife and I both took the same online IQ test shortly after we got married, and we both had exactly the same score. (I will spare you the number, because I do not want any of my readers to develope a complex of any kind...)

But I'm still smarter than she is.

Because I married HER, and SHE married ME.

No doubt about it.

I'M the smart one here.

United 93

On Sunday, I watched "United 93".

I could not watch it sitting down.

I paced the living room, flexed my muscles, and wiped my eyes. I could not be still.

The thought that kept running through my mind was, had the hi-jackers been unlucky enough to try hi-jacking a plane-load of Truck Drivers raised in North Carolina, they would have had a much more difficult time pulling the whole thing off.

I cannot believe that I would sit quietly while four early-twenties Arab men hijacked a plane that I was on with $2 box-cutters from Wal*Mart and a fake bomb. Especially if I were on a plane load of grown American men.

And if I did, then they may as well go ahead and kill me, because I would never be able to live with myself after I had let someone overpower me like that.

But then again, you can never know what you will do until you are faced with the situation, and I have never faced a situation like that one.

I do know this much...

I am who and what I am, and had I been on that flight, knowing that people on that day were hi-jacking planes and flying them into buildings in order to kill thousands of people at once, and to destroy the American way of life, I would like to think that I would not sit quietly and let them do it.

If I knew that they were going to kill us all anyway, I would have been a ring leader in making them kill us one at a time.

Starting with me, if necessary.

If you haven't seen this movie, watch it.

As soon as possible.

Tag...I'm IT!!

Pastor Timothy has tagged me.

The subject of his Meme is 80's Music, a subject which I dearly love.

I became musically aware in the 80's, and ever since, music has been a very important part of my life. I learned to play guitar in the 80's, and I was totally caught up in the "Hair Metal" craze, and in the "Grunge Movement" that replaced it.

I played in a Band for years, I loved every minute of it, and would do it again in a heartbeat, if I had the time.

Anyway, here are Pastor Tim's questions, and my answers. (Also available at his place.)

1. One 1980s song that has changed your life: "In the still of the night" by Whitesnake.

It came out right at the same time that I got my first Electric Guitar and amplifier, and was one of the first songs that I ever learned to play.

That eventually led to countless hours at Band Practice, late-night Gigs in seedy rat-hole Bars, and lots of women with whom I had...ahem...friendships (before I met and married my Wife, of course).

2. One 1980s song that you can sing all the lyrics: "Stray Cat Strut" by the Stray Cats.

Still sing it at Karaoke a few times a year...

3. One 1980s band you would want on a desert island with you: The GoGo's!

I know that they are all old women, but I'm an old man...You don't think that I would want to surround myself with a bunch of dudes, do you?

(That is, if my wife wasn't there. If she were, then my choice would be Rush. They would be intensly interesting, and they are all uglier than I am.)

4. One 1980s band that you are embarrased you listened to: Poison.

C.C. DeVille (Guitarist for Poison) once said in an interview: "We are not making Art, we are making Burgers."

And he was right.

5. One 1980s band that made you cry [or feel really sad]:Rush.

Some of their lyrics are extremely deep, and dark.

6. One 1980s band that you wanted to play with: Ratt.

They were way cool, Junior!

7. One 1980s band that you wish had never formed: Men Without Hats.

They inhaled profusely.

8. One 1980s band you still listen to: Depeche Mode.

They get better and better as they get older.

9. One 1980s band you want your children to listen to: Metallica.

I would love to raise a whole crop of monsterous guitar players.

10. I would like to tag Goat, Elashley, D.Daddio, Mike, and Daffy.

Have fun!

I just got off the phone with Senator John McCain.

I haven't spoken with him in a good little while, so this morning, out of the blue, he called me.

It was good to hear from him again, actually.

We chatted for a short time, and he finally got around to the real purpose of his call, which was to remind me to vote for Charlie Crist for Governor of Florida (which I had planned to do anyway).

That's one of the things that I really love about Election Season...

You get to find out who your real friends are...

It Was Bound To Happen Sooner Or Later...

Today is a sad day.


Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin dead...

He was killed in a freak accident in Cairns, police sources said today.
It is understood he was killed by a stingray barb that went through his chest and reportedly into his heart .

He was swimming off the Low Isles at Port Douglas filming an underwater documentary when the tragedy occured.

I still vividly remember the first time I ever watched this guy on Television.

He was going around Australia, picking up and showing the camera the 10 most deadly snakes in the World.

I sat for an hour with my mouth hanging open.

The MOST amazing thing he ever did, as far as I'm concerned, is find a woman who was just as crazy as he was, and talk her into marrying him. There's someone for everyone, I guess.

My brother-in-law said that his Tomb Stone would say "Here Lies The Luckiest S.O.B. In The Whole World."

Maybe not...

He will be missed.

He lasted a whole lot longer than I ever thought he would...

Camel's Milk: Viagra of the desert?

New Delhi, India - One hump or two?

Camel's milk is hot stuff in India because of its supposed effect as an aphrodisiac. The run on camel's milk was prompted by an 88-year-old man who fathered a child.

The Times of India newspaper reports the man attributes his virility to the drink. The paper reports prices for camel's milk have now doubled. But don't bother walking a mile for this camel. Indian medical researchers dismiss the notion that camel's milk could be the Viagra of the desert.

I don't know whether it works or not, but my Wife has ordered 50 gallons.

High On The Hog...

My Wife and I just returned from a little weekend getaway to picturesque Orlando Florida.

Going to Orlando for the weekend is nothing unusual for us. We live about an hour and a half from Orlando, and we both hold Yearly Passes to the Universal Studios Theme Parks which allow us to walk right in like we own the place. We go all the time.

But this time we did it a little differently.

This time, we got a room in one of the Resort Hotels on the property.

It was obscenely expensive.

But we had been planning for this trip for quite a while, and my plan was to set things up so that all weekend, the answer never had to be "No, we can't afford that."

We were shuttled from the Hotel to the Parks on a little boat, we had Fast Passes (included in the price of the room) which allowed us to skip right to the front of the line on any ride we wanted to ride. We soaked in the Hot-Tub, raided the Mini-Bar, put the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, and basked in the lap of Luxury.

My Wife's brother and his Wife went with us, and on Sunday Night, we all dressed up and went to dinner at Emeril's Tchoup Chop (pronounced "Chop Chop", due to the fact that you cut up your credit card when you leave the place), where I paid $170.00 for 16 ounces of Filet Mignon, eleven roasted potatoes (which looked suspiciously like left-over Home-Fries from the Breakfast Buffet at the restaurant next door...), three Scallops and a handful of Onion Straws, shared between my Wife and me.

I could have cooked the whole meal over a can of Sterno in the Hotel Room for about $15, and you would not have been able to tell the difference in the food.

But I did not go there for the food.

I went there to look at the Waterfall on the back wall while I ate. I went to see if there were any fish in the raised Tile Pond in the center of the restaurant. I went to have the waiter fluff my napkin and put it on my lap for me, and ask every two minutes if I wanted more Mineral Water.

I went for the experience.

And it was great.

I have always had to be extremely careful with money my whole life, but for one weekend, I was P.Diddy in Orlando, and it felt wonderful.

I do not know what your financial status may be, but DO THIS.

At least once in your life, just go away somewhere with your Wife/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Partner/Complete Stranger, and forget about the cost. For just a few days, do whatever you want, no matter what.

And when you get back home, be happy about the fact that you did it. Don't second guess it.

You will not be sorry.

I do not discuss the issue of Abortion very often on my own Blog. I will occasionally engage on the subject at other sites, but I know that no agreement will ever be reached between those who believe that a woman should be allowed to abort her healthy unborn baby in order to correct her own mistake, and those who believe that to do so is to cut short the life of an innocent human being.

The one other time that I spoke about my view of abortion here was the first and only time I was ever called a Nazi.

I was called a Nazi because of this statement:

"I think that women SHOULD be allowed to terminate pregnancies. If the Democrat Party wants to continue to Abort their Voter Base, that's fine with me."

And how the fur did fly.

I was told that rooting for the elimination of the children of my political adversaries was immoral. I was told that Democrats were not the only people who have Abortions. (We all know that Pro-Life Right Wing Republicans have Abortions all the time...)

I was told that the type of hatred that I displayed was more in line with Nazi Germany than in Modern Free America, where women can freely choose to kill their own babies, and we are supposed to do nothing to stop them, but we all must pretend to be appropriately sorrowful for them, because they have been forced to make such an unfortunate choice.

But facts are facts.

I am a Conservative because my parents instilled Conservative Values in me from a very young age.

I assume that Liberal Parents would try to encourage Liberal Ideals in their children as well.

But lately Liberals seem to have more and more trouble winning National Elections, and as far as I know, it has occured to no one else but me that there may be a connection between this trend and the insistence of Liberal Democrats to protect the right of their women to abort their children.

Then tonight, I found this at the Drudge Report.

The Fertility Gap
Liberal politics will prove fruitless as long as liberals refuse to multiply.
BY ARTHUR C. BROOKS Tuesday, August 22, 2006 12:01 a.m. EDT

The midterm election looms, and once again efforts begin afresh to increase voter participation. It has become standard wisdom in American politics that voter turnout is synonymous with good citizenship, justifying just about any scheme to get people to the polls...

On the political left, raising the youth vote is one of the most common goals.

The trouble is, while most "get out the vote" campaigns targeting young people are proxies for the Democratic Party, these efforts haven't apparently done much to win elections for the Democrats. The explanation we often hear from the left is that the new young Democrats are more than counterbalanced by voters scared up by the Republicans on "cultural issues" like abortion, gun rights and gay marriage...

But the data on young Americans tell a different story. Simply put, liberals have a big baby problem: They're not having enough of them, they haven't for a long time, and their pool of potential new voters is suffering as a result.

The article does not make the connection, but I do.

Can you imagine how different things would have been, had Thirty Million voting-age people, all raised by Pro-Choice Left Leaning parents (or mothers, as the case may be) shown up to vote in the 2000 Presidential Election?

Is this not further evidence of how Liberalism is ultimately it's own punishment?

Oooh, Shiny!

Yesterday was Xena's birthday.

She turned... ahem...a year older than she was.

She has worried about this birthday. She says that she is getting too old.

I think that she has barely gotten grown. As far as I'm concerned, she's just right. If she were any younger she wouldn't have dated me because I would have been too old for her, and if she were any older, she would have been looking for a whole lot more stable and successful man than me.

I managed to catch her right in that perfect phase that women go through between gullible and driven, and I managed to fool her into marrying me.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been trying to decide what to give her for her birthday. That has been harder than I thought it would be. (You see, I normally take such good care of her that she never wants for anything anyway.) ( Ha! You believe that too, don't you?)

She said she wanted a new dishwasher (I don't know why, though...the one we've got works fine...), a new gas grille, a set of pots and pans, or a necklace that I picked out.

Well, I want a new gas grille too, so I can't get her that. If I tried to buy her pots and pans, you can rest assured that I would buy the wrong ones. (Don't ask.)

That leaves the necklace.

So friday night after work, I stopped off at the fine jeweler Jean Claude Penne', and went shopping.

Me: "Ma'am, how much for that little chain with the three stones in the top corner over there?"

Jewelery sales lady: "Well the normal price on that piece is ( ludicrously expensive), but right now it is on sale, and has been marked down to (ridiculously expensive)."

Me: "Cough, Cough, Gag!...I'm sorry, Ma'am... I wasn't looking to buy her a football stadium, I just wanted to get her a necklace. What do you have that is a little more conservatively priced?"

Sales lady: "Well we have this set over here which is the new spider web sized chain with two microscopic stones, and matching imaginary earrings, normally (ridiculously expensive), now marked down to (prohibitively expensive)."

Me: "Where?"

Sales lady: "Right here. Beneath this price tag."

I have always had trouble picking out jewelery. It is tough for me to get okay with spending thousands of dollars for something that doesn't DO anything.

I wound up buying her a 22" Glitter Cut gold rope chain. Plain, simple, elegant (according to the sales lady), and beautiful.

I gave it to my Wife for her birthday on friday night.

And I found out what jewelery DOES.

And I do not regret spending the money on the chain in any way.

It's been a good weekend.

Happy Birthday, Baby!

Peace At Last!

Well, the War is over! Hooray, Huzzah!

The Bad Guys won.

Hezbollah Claims Win As Cease-Fire Holds
Aug 14, 5:40 PM (ET)By STEVEN R. HURST

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Tens of thousands of Lebanese jammed bomb-damaged roads Monday to return to homes where they found still-smoldering scenes of destruction after 34 days of vicious combat with Israel ended with a tenuous cease-fire.

Hezbollah fighters hugged each other and celebratory gunfire erupted in Beirut when the Islamic militant group's leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah claimed a "strategic, historic victory."

All Hezbollah had to do to win was survive as an organization.

And they have.

Thanks to the meddling of the U.N., and the flacid uselessness of the U.S. State Department, they have not only survived, but have retained their weapons, and have gained status as an organization which now has to be appeased and bargained with.

The World has chosen to reward the spoiled child in our midst, and in doing so, has taught the spoiled child how to get it's way. Throw a big enough tantrum, and you can have whatever you want.

Congratulations to all of us.

Peace. Bah!

Situations like this could cause me to hate the very word.

When did fighting bad guys become so terrible and so difficult that it is no longer worth it?

Why is the whole World more and more willing to put up with unacceptable tactics and inhuman actions from groups like Hezbollah, as long as they promise to behave themselves for a few more weeks?

This is not progress. This is not Peace.

This is a chance for Hezbollah to re-group. To re-arm. To dig in a little deeper.

This was no game-winning touch-down.

This was a punt.

Hezbollah will be back to smack the World in the head.

Let's hope that they do not wait until Iran has a Nuclear Weapon to supply to them to smack us with.

This thing is not over. Not by a long shot.
