Pelosi aids Al Qaeda

February 22, 2007

Hi Brit,

Guess who is once more has her knickers in a knot?  Nanny Pelosi of course.  This time, she may even have good reason.  Our Vice President, Dick Cheney, made a speech in Tokyo where he said, “I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the Al Qaeda strategy.  The Al Qaeda strategy is to break the will of the American people … try to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit.”   This is what has her all in a huff, even though it’s a true and fair assessment by the VP.  However, why I think she has reason to be miffed is that she was not able to reach the President to complain.  Sorry Bush, while one can hardly fault you for not wanting to talk to our vapid leader of the House, it’s part of your job; it’s why you get paid the not really so big bucks.  So, next time, suck it up and put her on the Speaker phone.

Pelosi smiles while Democrats spit on our troops!

February 17, 2007

Hi Brit,

In a replay of the last war the Democrats lost for us, Nanny Pelosi has engineered a spineless vote in Congress to pass a “non-binding” resolution against President Bush’s running of the war in Iraq.  While this vile spit-in-the-face attempt to spit in the face of our troops, who, while risking their lives in service to their country, are totally committed to the war, failed to make it through the Senate, it still serves to prove how cowardly and anti-American the liberals are.  Just take a glance at this, Pelosi smiles at Bush, and know that she is really smiling at a partial political victory at the expense of the men and women who defend our country.  Of course, if Pelosi and her liberal gang had any stones, and I’m surprised that Nanny P. doesn’t, they would have put their cards on the table and tried to actually cut funding for the war.  However, as usual, symbolism is just as good to liberals as substance, and they are just beside themselves at this at this partially successful mocking of everything America used to hold dear.

Stupid liberals!

February 11, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was reading this, Hybrid-Only Car Service Launches in San Francisco, and it hit me as to just how stupid liberals are, as a general rule.  The key point in this is that, according to the story, the idea is to make rich people flying into Nanny Pelosi’s home town feel better by taking “green” transportation around town, after dumping untold tons of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere while flying in a fuel waisting jet.  Then I read the details, and was shocked.  Keep in mind that the article is tainted with the usual liberal bias, even though it does throw in a tiny hit about the jet travel thing, but it also includes, “with a fleet of leather-seated Priuses.”  I’m sure that the reporter, not knowing squat about Global Warming, didn’t think twice about this.  However, the secondary part of the Climate Change Conspiracy, the one that really gets the radical liberals frothing at the mouth over its potential for bringing about social change, is the implication of cow farts in heating up the globe.  That would, of course, be the methane content in the massive flatulence produced by our bovine food supply, which is an excuse for left wing groups to insist everyone turn vegetarian.  Thus the paradoxical nature of a “green” car with leather seats.  Oh, well, I am assuming that the leather was produced from cow hide and not Jews, but that is most likely a safe assumption.

Disorder in the ranks of Global Warming fanatics?

February 10, 2007

Hi Brit,

It seems that the Church of Global Warming should pick a High Priest to coordinate things.

On one hand we have, Congress eyes legislation to fight climate change (which I mentioned previously,) many countries are trying to implement the Kyoto Treats, and the EU is in the process of adding all sorts of new environmental laws.

On the other hand, we have, Climate Change Verdict: Science Debate Ends, Solution Debate Begins.  While I contest the “Science debate ends” part, having posted about this several times in the recent past, I point out the “Solution debate begins” part, as it relates to what I just mentioned above.  If there is still debate, even among the ranks of the faithful, as to what to do about Global Warming, then a rational person would have to question how our politicians can know what laws to pass to fix it?  If they understand things better than the Climate Scientists on who’s’ knowledge rests the concept and proof of Global Warming, perhaps they should write the IPCC reports on the subject.  Wait, sorry, I forgot, they did.  Still, one would think that some scientific basis would be needed to formulate solutions to a real problem.

On the gripping hand, I found this, UTSA researchers examine effects of global warming on Antarctic.  Now, call me crazy, but I thought this was “settled science,” and we know that the Antarctic ice is melting.  So, a rational person must ask, why are we waisting money examining things we already know all about?  Shouldn’t those funds be going to find a solution to Global Warming, or at least to implementing the solutions the politicians already seem to know about?

I have to say, Global Warming fanatics, y’all really should anoint a High Priest in an effort to get your act together.  How about AlGore?

How long can you hold your breath?

February 9, 2007

Hi Brit,

I just read this, Congress eyes legislation to fight climate change, and immediately asked myself “how long can I hold my breath?”  After all, each of us expel the Evil Greenhouse Gas CO2 with each breath, and, now that Nanny Pelosi has the issue firmly clinched in her dentures, I expect that soon we will be faced with a Breath Tax, to encourage us to slow down our individual contributions to Global Warming.  By my quick, and not necessarily totally accurate, calculations, we in the US can offset her jet set life style if we each take 30 fewer breaths per day.  Of course, this increased interest in decreasing our breath rates will have at least one benefit, that being, getting some of the joggers off the road.

Although, considering that:

The White House said Snow was referring to figures from the International Energy Agency that from 2000 to 2004, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion grew by 1.7 percent, while in the European Union such emissions grew by 5 percent.  From: U.S. cuts emissions better than Europe: White House.

It would seem obvious to any rational person, thus excluding most Democrats I admit, that we are on the correct path to achieve the liberal agenda of reducing CO2 emissions without further Government meddling.  With liberals in control, of course, they will ignore the facts, raise taxes and piddle around in our lives until they manage to, not only, increase Greenhouse Gas Emissions, but, also, screw up our economy.  Typical.

Queen Pelosi?

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

I knew when the election results came in last year the Pelosi would be a constant source of inspiration.  I didn’t think it would be this good though, Speaker pursues military flights.  The key to this story is not that Queen Pelosi wants free rides in military planes, being secure and staying in contact with Washington is part of her job as Speaker.  However, she is also demanding, “regular military flights not only for herself and her staff, but also for relatives and for other members of the California delegation.”  Sorry, Nanny Pelosi.  You’re are Speaker of the House, not royalty.  Family and friends have to fly commercial.  That’s the price you pay for the new ethics rules.  Besides, you shouldn’t be flying anyway.  Don’t you believe in Global Warming?  Aren’t you concerned about the size of your carbon footprint?  Oh, I forgot.  All that stuff only applies to us peasants.

Pelosi’s home town drama.

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

This goes a ways toward explaining why Nanny Pelosi is, let us say, a bit confused about how much Government people really need, AIDE QUITS AS NEWSOM’S AFFAIR WITH HIS WIFE IS REVEALED.  The steamy details boil down to, the Mayor of San Francisco at one time was sleeping with his secretary who was the wife of his campaign manager, and all was fine until the wife in question confessed to her husband during a rehab program for substance abuse, after which the aide told the Mayor off then quit.  Apparently, none of the governed are upset, with the exception of the guy who quit, and the Mayor is sad that the guy who’s wife he banged won’t stay on the job.  Environment, it would seem, does play a significant role in how people turn out.

Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

George Bush and the ladies triangle

January 27, 2007

Hi Grit

Although there has been no Clinton-type impropriety during George Bush’s Presidency, he must be wondering what he has done to become embroiled in a triangle on ladies.

It seems to me that this is the most important issue that George Bush has to face during the last two years of his term, namely how to deal with the ladies. In the past three months suddenly, out of seemingly nowhere, he has been placed in the middle of a triangle of female attackers.

First there is the leader of the house Ms Pelosi, who has made plain her disagreement with the way that he is conducting the Iraq war and a number of other issues. In fact, it is difficult to find an issue where there is any vestigage of agreement between the two.

Next comes Ms Merkel of the EU, seeking to promote a single US/EU marketplace. One only has to look at the imperfections of the EU’s own region wide policies to see how successful that will be. This despite the fact that there is no consensus of opinion in favour of it from the individual nations involved.

Lastly, Hilary Clinton has entered the fray. One of course has to wonder about her utterances of returning the core values back to American life, especially in view of the husbands antics whilst he was in office.

Whilst I am in no way a chauvinist, I have to wonder how Bush is going to cope with this new position he finds himself in. Having spent the last six years discussing issues with male politicians, with whom he shares a similar daily word output, how is he going to fare in a position where he has to discuss these with ladies, who researches have proven to have a word output of at least 2.5 times that of a male?

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.

Democrats causing Climate Change for political gain!

January 26, 2007

Hi Brit,

Well, it does seem as if Nanny Pelosi, the Speaker Lady and big gun against Global Warming and Climate Change (if it’ll get her a vote or two,) is another liberal who’s ideology only applies to the common people.  She and a horde of Big Name liberal politicians are off on a quick trip to Iraq to check things out for themselves, Pelosi to meet with al-Maliki in quick visit to Iraq.  Of course, they’re flying, pumping tons and tons of CO2 into the air, not to mention burning untold thousands of tax payer dollars, just to have a photo-op and make a political point.  Typical liberal elitists.  What do you want to bet that they step off the jet right into a convoy of SUVs?

Sick in San Francisco

January 25, 2007

Hi Brit,

It looks like San Francisco didn’t send all its liberals to Washington.  Apparently they kept enough to pass a new law, Paid Sick and Take-Care-of-Your-Neighbor Days to Be Mandatory in San Francisco.  How appropriate that Nanny Pelosi’s home town is taking a giant step forward in the race to achieve a total socialist Nanny State.  I’m surprised that they didn’t go ahead and require the employer to deliver a bowl of chicken soup and a bottle of aspirin the the “sick” employee, on foot, to reduce carbon emissions.  Ah, how I long for the days when the mountain range and desert that perpetrates me from the liberal bastion that is California offered some protection from their insanity.

Celebrities cause climate change!

January 24, 2007

Hi Brit,

While I have suspected this for a while now, finally there’s proof: The private jet set.  Sure, the Rich and Famous talk a fine game, and are quick to tell us common folk not to drive gas guzzling SUVs, but they don’t seem to have any problems zipping around in private jets.  You know, I can’t think of any mode of transportation that belches more CO2 per person mile than a jet.  For that matter, I seem to recall reading that almost all of our Congress people fly home every weekend and back to DC on Monday.  For the Speaker Lady, that’s several thousand high pollution miles.  It makes one wonder just how much of the Global Warming “problem” is actually caused by the very people who are so intent on making us sacrifice to fix it. 

So, I think the first thing Nanny Pelosi should do to prove her sincerity about stopping Climate Change, is to ban private ownership of aircraft.  She should also impose an “air miles” allotment scheme like they’re planning on doing for Carbon emissions.  Then, if the Rich and Famous want to live the jet set life, they’ll have to share some of that wealth.

Who has bigger stones, Pelosi or Bush?

January 16, 2007

Hi Brit,

Since both our countries are in the Iraq war together, I thought you might be interested in this political smack down, Pelosi warns Bush shouldn’t ‘abuse power’ on troop escalation.  I know Pelosi and her pack of snarling liberal Democrats talk a good game, but one has to wonder if they’re brave enough to cut funding for troops in the field?  My guess is  that they won’t dare.  However, there are some Republicans that may take Pelosi’s side, although that may just be a ploy to lure her into a trap.  Good times; good times.

Pelosi dines at Big Business trough!

January 12, 2007

Hi Brit,

It’s amusing to watch the players change, while the the game stays the same.  Instead of following up on her promise to run an honest and open Congress, Nanny Pelosi is dishing out the political favors for Big Business in her home district of San Francisco.  This time, she’s directed the party of the people, that would be Democrats, in a scheme to get credit for raising the minimum wage, while helping her home town cronies by screwing the workers in American Samoa:

GOP hits Pelosi’s ‘hypocrisy’ on wage bill

The only way I can figure this one out is that our Speaker Lady doesn’t consider Samoans to be people.  Well, she could just be on the take from the tuna companies.  Someone who out in SF should keep an eye on her house to see if any tuna shaped packages are delivered.

The gift that keeps on giving.

January 8, 2007

Hi Brit,

I just thought I’d take a moment to thank Mexico for the present of so many of their fine citizens, Some immigrants are re-arrested 6 times.  What would our law enforcement agencies, private security firms, and burglar alarm industries do with out you?

Now a question to the Most Powerful Woman in the World (as Nanny Pelosi thinks of herself,) what are you going to do about this?  Allow me to suggest not releasing these criminals inside the United States.  Allow me to further suggest returning them to Mexico using a giant catapult, which, perhaps, would deter repeated illegal entry into our country.

Snap, crack, pop go the promises

January 8, 2007

Hi Brit,

I do love politics, especially following up on campaign promises.  The Democrats have already broken two in only a week.

House rules change clears way for tax increases

DEM VOW ALREADY BROKEN: HOUSE SETS 4-DAY WORK WEEK

I suspect they picked those two to shatter first on the basis that no one could possibly have believed them anyway.  Really, can you imagine liberals who don’t drool uncontrollably over the prospect of raising taxes?  For that matter, can you imagine any politician putting in a full week at the office?

Didn’t the Democrats promise a more ethical Congress?

January 6, 2007

Hi Brit,

I seem to recall a lot of talk from the Democrats about having a more ethical Congress if they took over.  I guess that means they’re going to remove Senator Reid (D – Nev) from his office, Reid’s Land Deal.  It looks like the fat cat Senator has picked up a few hundred thousand dollars in a shady, and undisclosed, land deal.  Reid, the new Senate Majority Leader, claims everything was on the up and up, just like Hilary Clinton’s gift for commodities trading, and not to bother looking into the details.  Oh, and he also offered, showing just how gracious the evil rich guy is, to go back, now that he’s been caught, and amend his ethics reports for the last decade or so.  I would point out to Nanny Pelosi, who spouted volumes on the Culture of Corruption in Washington during the last campaign cycle, that all Impeachments start in the House and that one for Senator Rich Guy Reid should be at the top of her agenda, right after she legislates poverty, intolerance, and Big Business out of existence.

Speaker Nanny Pelosi!?!

January 4, 2007

H Brit,

Just so you stay up on political happenings here in the States, this woman,

pelosiwhip.jpg

Nancy Pelosi, is moments away from becoming Speaker of the House of Representatives.  Even though the Democrats ran on a platform of moderation in Government, this woman is an extremely liberal Representative from some twisted district in San Fransisco, California.  There are good and bad things about this event.

Bad: this places her second in line to be President, should something happen to Bush and Cheney. 

Good: if she follows tradition, the Speaker rarely appears on the floor of the House, so we won’t have to look at her so often.

Bad: she’ll push through a load of junk legislation, that will be praised by the news media, but which won’t have a chance to pass the Senate.  The only thing that will get done in Congress is an endless series of Committee investigations and hearings on how evil the current Administration is.

Good: we’ll have an endless source of political stuff to make fun of.
