The scariest words you can hear…

February 4, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was just listening to a cable news channel (Fox, of course) and the scariest words you can hear came out of the speakers.  Yes, I’m going to make you play the guessing game.  I’ll get you started; it wasn’t:

You’re drafted.

Your money or your life.

Your services are no longer necessary.

You are being audited.

Let me read you your rights.

None of that, sorry.  The words were, “In the name of <insert the name of any appropriate God or Gods here.>  In the particular context of the news report, the speaker was some stupid Muslim’s last video record before they went and blew them self up in an effort to kill some Jews, because God told them to do it.  However, from what I recall of my history classes, those same words have prefaced a plethora of religious inspired violence down through the centuries.  These include, to name a few off the top of my head, the Crusades, the Islamic invasions of Europe, the Spanish Inquisition, Nazi Germany, the destruction of countless native cultures and artifacts at the hands of Catholic Missionaries, England’s lengthy list of conquests during the height of Her power, the current insanity in the Middle East, Spain’s rape of South America, the continuing low level war between India and Pakistan, and, if we consider Communism to be a religion (which it is if you look closely,) Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, the USSR under Stalin, plus too many supporting cast roles to be mentioned here.

As a global community we have many problems, many threats facing us.  These include the politicization of Global Warming, over population, lack of education, HIV/AIDS, other health threats like the Bird Flu, clashes of culture, too many languages, dictators, lack of education, and far too many others to list.  However, to me, the worst, the very worst problem we face are those words, “In the name of…”

Hillary slips, admits she’s a whore for socialism!

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

While I have never had any doubt that Hillary Clinton is, at heart, a socialist, she finally admitted it to the world today, Hillary on Oil Profits.  In this short clip from her speech, she proclaims that, as President, she would take the profits from the oil companies and invest it in research programs.  I’ll leave the rant about alternative energy and its general state of being a pipe dream until later.  However, I must take a moment and explain to the Candidate From Hell that the race is for President.  If she wants to be Dictator, she should go to Cuba or Venezuela.  Even though I hope daily that Bill finally gets tired of her and adds her to the long list of dead Friends Of Bill, this admission of greed and corruption having a prominent place in her personal philosophy, once again demonstrates the stomach turning ugliness that is the true face of the Democratic Party and liberalism in general.

Chavez invites US politicians to visit!

January 26, 2007

Hi Brit,

For a good spell now I’ve been following the insanity of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, and wasn’t really sure what to make of it.  However, it would seem that he is finally back on his meds, and is ready to make nice by inviting our politicians down for a visit, Chavez tells Washington to “go to hell”.  We can only hope Pelosi and the other top Democrats, now that they are in charge, will take the loon up on his offer, as soon as they get back from their junket to Iraq.  Heck, I bet they’ll have a lot in common.

Don’t you know the liberals are just green with envy

January 25, 2007

Hi Brit,

I just found this, China’s Hu vows to “purify” Internet, which is scary enough all on its own.  Then I got to thinking about our elitist political types and it made me twinge.  Considering that the Democrats are yammering about bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, our Postal Service is lobbing Congress to put a tax on email to make up for their lost snail mail business, and liberals in general hate any free speech that isn’t in their favor, just think what they could do without the terrible hassle of having to pass laws within the framework of the Constitution.

Have your city and burn it too!

January 24, 2007

Hi Brit,

Guess what, there is violence in Beirut!  Why is that news, you might wonder?  I’ll tell you.  If you glance through this article, Clash Pits Hezbollah Against Rule in Lebanon, you’ll find that there is a reasonable chance for Hezbollah, a horribly brutal and violent terrorist group, to gain control of Lebanon.  Of course, they would immediately convert it to a safe haven for terrorists from around the world, like Al-Queda, and use it as a base from which to attack Israel, repeatedly, until they finally win and slaughter all the Jews.  Of course, if they do win, my guess is that the result will be even worse, because someone will cap a nuke in their ass.  It doesn’t really matter who will do it, but there are plenty of contenders. 

Israel, an obvious first choice, but they probably won’t jump to be first, although they may toss around a couple of follow up strikes just to be sure.  Considering how many countries, like France, are just itching to see their bloody demise, they can’t take the chance.

USA, might happen.  Bush has nothing to loose, the military loves him enough to maintain secrecy, and we can probably do it with little chance of getting caught. 

Russia, my bet.  Keep in mind that Russia is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, and they make a lot of money selling arms to the Arabs.  The reason the Arabs need weapons is to continue the low level conflict with Israel.  Putin can’t afford to let one side or the other win.  Boom!

Syria, another good bet.  Face it, there is massive evidence that Saddam either had a nuke or was close to getting one.  Lots and lots of stuff made the journey to Syria just before Iraq fell.  If they have a nuke, what better time to use it?  Not only do they have a great shot at blaming the incident on Israel, but they can keep Hezbollah in check, before they become a dominate force in the area and threaten the Powers That Be in Syria.

Saudi Arabia, my second place bet.  Come on, you know the Saudis must have picked up a few big bombs by now.  It’s not like they can’t afford them.  Add to that, their need to keep the attention of their citizens focused on the Evil Jews, instead of how oppressed they are by the Monarchy.  Then mix in a bit of realization that, besides a desire to kill Americans and Jews, most of the terrorist groups want to take control of the entire Middle East and return things to how they were during the Persian Empire.  Oh, with themselves in charge of course, which wouldn’t set well with the current dictators of SA.  Sprinkle a little control of Mecca on top, and the Saudi Royal Family has an excellent reason not to allow Hezbollah to gain too much power.  That reason being, keeping their heads attached to their necks.

I suggest we all spend some time cheering for the current Government of Lebanon.

Hitler, Chavez – same number of letters…

January 19, 2007

Hi Brit,

Here we go again, another dictator with a Hitler fetish, Rule by decree passed for Chavez.  Will someone please shoot this monster-in-waiting before the sheep start taking him seriously?  For that matter, why hasn’t the UN shut this loon down?  Oh, I forgot; the UN is absolutely impotent and corrupt.  My bad.
