The Blind Men and the Polar Bears

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

The senators who just returned from their junket to Greenland should ponder the fact that they were there in summer before they commence with all their hand-wringing over the impacts of man-made global warming. Was Al Gore their tour guide? And yes, Polar bears do get shot when they wander into villages searching for food. Before the advent of firearms the villagers used knives and spears. They should also check with the Australians who enjoyed the coolest June on record. They should also spend an afternoon in some historic coastal village on our own east coast and calculate just how much the sea has risen in the last 400 years.

This trip is so very reminiscent of the story of the blind men and the elephant. It is worth reviewing.

The Little Generalisimo

Tuesday, July 31st, 2007

So this is how Gonzales has thus far survived the mean season: proving to the subpeona mongers that he is willing to play ball by tossing a few Republicans under the team bus. He won\’t go after Sandy Berger, Feinstein, Boxer and Pelosi over their obvious misuse of office but he will send the FBI to the homes of John Doolittle and Ted Stevens. Yes, politics is revolting (so, soon, shall the citizens).

The Psycho Path

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Some take the road less traveled
Some choose the psycho-path
But when life fully does come unraveled
You’ll be treading the sour grapes of wrath.

Some say that they’ve always been crazy
And it’s helped them to get though the day
But with one day piled on another
The only safe course is to pray

So we’re locked in our mortal condition
We’re all sentenced in life to hard time
But we’re one step away from perdition
When the poets all cease to use rhyme.

Words seldom contain all the meaning
That our faculties wish to convey
But in choosing, we find ourselves leaning
Toward the side that has something to say.

Where are the Heroes?

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

Where is George Patton now that we need him? There are a bunch of them; they are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and in other places that most Americans would have trouble locating on a map. Thank God for them. What we need are morelike them here at home who will take on the moral migets and cowards that have taken over the People\’s House.

Plaintiff Imams

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

The following paragraph is re-posted from April 11, 2007 in response to the Democrat party\’s recent decision not to grant immunity from prosecution to those who alert authorities to the suspicious behavior of potential terror suspects. Before the Dems use \”racial profiling\” as a reason for their malignant myopia they need to consider the epiphany Malcom X experienced while on his pilgrimage to Mecca. It appears, while there, he discovered that Islam has nothing whatsoever to do with race, no doubt the reason he was assassinated by those whose agenda required continued racial tension.

\”No one wants to be sued. The process of being drug through the process is tedious, expensive and unwholesome. Most Americans do all we can to avoid it. This is what the Jihadis are counting on. This attempt, by the Six Flying Imams, to sue their fellow passengers is a strategic step to suppress such vigilance in the future. The entire event was orchestrated to be exactly what it has become. Instead of using the plane, in this instance, as a weapon against us they are using our legal system to soften the resolve of those future passengers who may be there when the martyrs board. I would accept this episode as a sign that we need to invest even greater attentiveness in the direction of our fellow travelers as we move about the country.\”

Are the Democrats as concerned with National Security as they are with keeping their trial lawyer buddies in the chips? You will actually have to answer that question some day. It might as well be today.

The Road to Dem-asskiss

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

The Time magazine headline \”How the Democrats Found Religion\” can be quite amusing with the right inflection. As pointed out here a couple of years ago, for the Dems to close the spiritual gap with the Republicans they have to do more than sell their faith like some carnival barker; \”step right up, folks, we\’ve got dogma for ya!\” When the Dems truly get religion they will no longer be Dems. Oh sure, there are a few naive front men who can lay claim to being religious, like the dim bulb from Searchlight, but his insight wanes as he turns further and further from the Higher Power in his incomprehensible zeal to serve Soros and his associates.

We must be clear on this; the Left hates George Bush because of his religion, not his politics. The Christian belief system includes consequences. This is a notion Leftists can neither tolerate nor forgive.

The Dems\’ only epiphany is that that they need more votes. When you go to the polls remember that it wasn\’t God they met on the road to Dem-asskiss.

Deutschland Endlich Uber Alles

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

The cold-blooded murder of two German nationals kidnapped by the Taliban in Afghanistan on Wednesday provides Germany with an opportunity they have not enjoyed in a century. They may now freely bring all their military expertise to bear on their enemies without fearing international condemnation and retribution. Los gehts!

Win Lose

Monday, July 16th, 2007

The Dems (I remind you that I am a lifelong Independent) in the Capitol are investing significant political capital in their anti-war stance because they absolutely need to pull the plug on our war effort before noticible improvement in the circumstances becomes widely apparent to the American people (not likely in view of the Major Media\’s complicity). They are many things but they are not completly stupid; they know enough to understand that victory in Iraq spells doom for Dems.

ACLU MIA

Monday, July 16th, 2007

Where is the ACLU? Why has it failed to come to the aid of the Catholic Church in the homosexual priest controversy?

Whistlin\’ Dixie

Friday, July 13th, 2007

I remember how disgusted I felt when the Dixie Chix lamented to their British audience that they felt ashamed to be from the same state as George W. Bush. I must confess, however, that I now better understand how they felt; I am from the same state as Barbara Boxer.

Caligula Lives—

Sunday, July 8th, 2007

—and this time he is rallying his minions to combat climate change (formerly known as \”global warming\” until inconvenient record cold tempertatures were recently recorded in many parts of the world and until frostbite prematurely abridged an Arctic Expedition undertaken to illustrate the ravages of man-made greenhouse gasses on the endangered polar caps). It is doubtful, however, that the outcome will be much different than Caligula\’s war against the sea. The sea reamains, as will the fickle nature of weather (and many other things commencing with the letter \”W\”).
