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
Richard Winters
Paul Tully
Robert Kelly
Maynard Webb
Keith McKaskle
Gary Rhodes
Larry Lawrence
Niel Moody
Jon Parnell Walker
Shelly Kelly
Ed Willey
Eric Butera
Steve Wills
Bill Shelton
Robert G. Damus

Dr. Ronald Rogers
Robert Williams
William Colby
Cpl. Eric S. Fox
Darlene Novinger
Captain Schic
C. Victor Raisner II
Stanley Heard
James Sabow
Scott Reynolds
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...
