A Right Thinking San Francisco Blog

I recently ran across a blog called The Only Republican In San Francisco that I can only say is a must-read for anyone in search of any kind of comprehension of the leftist political tragedy that is San Francisco.

This is a city whose most conservative politician, upon being elected mayor, made his first priority conducting same sex marriages in defiance of state laws to the contrary. It's a city in which a liberal, do nothing toilet cake named Chris Daly was reelected as a city supervisor{the equivalent of a councilman in other cities}, where caravans of homeless people push stolen supermarket shopping carts down the sidewalks of main thoroughfares and use the doorways of apartment houses or the very sidewalks as commodes with legal impunity, where respect for this country and its religious traditions doesn't exist(you don't even see city Christmas decorations over the streets during the Holiday Season).

The author of this great blog is wrong in only one respect: He has only been the Only Republican in San Francisco for just under 4 months, since I left. Now he's on his own.

Definitely read his blog.

Urgent Message

This in today from Bay Buchanan --

****Please, go to your Senators’ office this Monday, April 3 at noon****

Dear Friends,
While the Senate continues to debate the outrageous ideas of amnesty and
guest worker, calls and e-mails from Americans everywhere are pouring in.
Americans are furious that the Senate is even considering these failed and
dangerous proposals.

We need the Senate to do the right thing by us! We are the people they
are paid to represent! What we want is clear—border security and
enforcement of our laws. In short, we need our Congress to break with
their corporate masters and do their job--and we need them to do it now
before it is too late!

Please, if at all possible go to your local Senators’ offices at noon on
Monday, April 3rd —if that doesn’t work go anytime during the day. The
Senators will be in Washington, but their local staffs will pass on your

Also tell your friends and families about this effort—even make flyers and
pass them out in your neighborhood, send this message around the internet.
Help us get as many Americans as possible to show up at their Senators’
offices on Monday!

And please keep calling them as well—we can’t let them do this to America!

My best,
Bay Buchanan

PS Many of you have said we need to do more—a March on Washington or the
like. I have been talking to many people about it. It would take months
to do it right and I am not certain we have months. We need to get to the
Senators NOW! So in spite of the short notice we are asking you to
organize as many people as possible and go to at least one of your
Senators’ local offices this Monday.

PSS In the meantime I am trying to see if there is time for a massive
demonstration. If there is, I will move ahead if you are with me.

Spinally Challenged, Or Simply Stupid?

The first thing I saw when I got online to do my start-of-the-day news reading this morning was this bunch of idiocy.

WASHINGTON -- Against a backdrop of massive demonstrations by immigration advocates and pressure from the White House, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved legislation to create two guest-worker programs and a plan for legalizing the status of millions of immigrants now in the country illegally.

The measure is the most generous of several immigration proposals before the panel, and passed with the support of committee Democrats and some of the Senate's most conservative Republicans.

In accepting the measure, which among other things offers guest workers the chance to eventually become U.S. citizens, senators rejected another bill sponsored by two border-state Republicans that would have required guest workers and illegal immigrants to eventually return home.

Now, what is wrong with these idiots we have elected and reelected, and continue to pay to enact the laws that govern this country?

Every day we hear figures citing a criminal alien population from Mexico alone as being somewhere between fifteen and twenty million. That doesn't even include the large and constant influx of undocumented Asians, South and Central Americans the U.S. Government has incompetently permitted to enter this country and remain here.

Instead of the government taking responsibility for having allowed this fiasco to become the legal and physical quagmire it is, even the President gives us excuse-based, lame explanations for the policies most of our lazy politicians are dead set on foisting upon us:

The bill passed only hours after President Bush made his strongest appeal yet for a law that would provide employers with enough immigrant workers to keep the economy humming. Appearing at a naturalization ceremony for new citizens, Mr. Bush attempted to head off arguments within his party that a border-security law must come before any effort to help immigrants or their employers.

He called a temporary-worker program "vital to securing our border" by providing a legal channel for workers and freeing up border agents to patrol for criminals and terrorists.

Provide employers with enough illegal, undocumented, should-not-even-be-here, criminal immigrant workers? Millions of 'em? Hey, I might be wrong, here, but doesn't the law stipulate that employers are supposed to confirm that these folks they hire are eligible to work in this country?

And how about all the folks who come here -- illegally -- and live off the taxpayer? And how about all those undocumented, untaxed income dollars that are Western Union'd back to family in the old country? You know, that money that could be better served if spent here in the U.S. to keep our economy moving?

That's pretty much how the system works here, or at least is supposed to work. If taxes are paid by all workers and they reinvest their net pay in the economy by spending it in the United States, American firms of all sizes would have more money to pay employees, and, with the enforcement of employment and immigration laws executed the way they are supposed to be, these employers might feel less compelled to hire criminal aliens under the table, off the books, whatever.

Sounds kind of convoluted, doesn't it, when you really think about it. First, our politicians, who are forever collectively spending our tax dollars on superfluous projects that the people who founded this nation{Smart bunch, those were, they put together the greatest political concept in history and made it work. Too bad they didn't have cryogenics back then, we could have used 'em about now} would have stomped thunderingly down beneath furious size fourteen boots.

Taxation without representation?

How much did that self seeking pillar of politics in Alaska manage to get "earmarked" to rip us off financing construction of the thankfully ill-fated "Bridge to Nowhere"? Even though the bridge allocation got nixed due to a surplus of voter backlash significantly attributeable to the Blogosphere, "the funds", as they undoubtedly regard our tax dollars to be, remain "earmarked" for the same larcenous local politicians to use for other things, instead. But therein was a single excess of wasted taxes that got caught out, and only because the grand larcens in question were a little too hungry.

If Africa's population wasn't as largely Muslim as it is, we could overfeed the entire continent, through decades of famine, disaster and doom with all the pork our Congress generates.

I know, my terrible habit of digressing has joined in...

So. Back on topic, sorry about that.

Not really. :-)

While money has been getting pissed away by irresponsible, self seeking politicians from both sides of the aisle, once-backburnered issues that now constitute an in-your-face political battleground were doing what they do when no one responds to them: growing.

Now a whole bunch of career politicians who know exactly why we have the problem -- decades of their keeping the problem as far away from the table as possible, for reasons related to votes -- they failed to adequately secure our borders or to seriously enforce immigration policies, which, as a collective resume item, well...

Now the usual politics will come into play. Instead of overwhelmingly voting to take strong, positive steps that might be a little painful at first(you know, re-"earmarking" the money that was to finance the preservation of some anti-American graffiti in a small southwestern town, or to subsidize private educational institutions that balk at allowing military recruiters on campus), transforming our pork pesos into border securidad, the career politicians on the Hill will attempt to apply a Band-Aid to a gushing wound so as not to offend anybody who might vote for them.

Here's the kind of thinking these knuckleheads do on our behalf, in exchange for our allowing them to occupy all the trappings of a ruling class on our dime:

The Senate-passed measure is largely based on language offered by John McCain, an Arizona Republican, and Edward Kennedy, a Massachusetts Democrat. Their temporary-worker plan, passed on an 11-6 vote, would grant visas to 400,000 immigrants a year initially. They would be able to bargain for wages, change jobs, unionize and would be allowed to travel home and return.

Separately, the committee passed a pilot guest-worker plan for agriculture workers that would be capped at 1.5 million workers and cut off after five years. That measure was passed at the insistence of California Democrat Dianne Feinstein, who said she feared that workers admitted under a general guest-worker program would spurn farm jobs for easier work in service or construction industries.

The committee also deferred to the McCain-Kennedy bill in its plan for dealing with an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants now in the country. Those people would have to pay a $1,000 penalty, pass a background check and get a work permit in order to stay in the U.S.

The political solution will only hurt us, big time. We are on the verge of setting a precedent by shoving federal law aside in order to accommodate political convenience, and in so doing make light of all laws. If politicians can advocate breaking the law because it makes finding solutions easier, they're definitely operating outside the boundaries of public service as we define it.

The political solution will also send a message to all potential illegals to "Come one, Come all!", and we'll be swamped by a wave of "immigration" that'll be nothing nice. If our borders aren't secure now, how will we be able to secure them then?

If that's the kind of vim we're getting for our vote, we'd do a whole lot better finding some people who graduated with Jethro Bodine and replacing both the House and the Senate with them.

A Funny From My Illustrious Aunt Brenda

Anger Management

When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don't take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't know.

I was sitting at my desk when I remembered a phone call I'd forgotten to make. I found the number and dialed it.
A man answered, saying "Hello." I politely said, "This is Chris. Could Iplease speak with Robyn Carter?"
Suddenly a manic voice yelled out in my ear "Get the right f**in number!" and the phone was slammed down on me. I couldn't believe that anyone could be so rude.

When I tracked down Robyn's correct number to call her, I found that I had accidentally transposed the last two digits. After hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number again.
When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled "You're an asshole!" and hung up. I wrote his number down with the word 'asshole' next to it, and put it in my desk drawer.

Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him up and yell, "You're an asshole!" It always cheered me up.

When Caller ID was introduced, I thought my therapeutic "asshole calling" would have to stop. So, I called his number and said, "Hi, this is John Smith from Verizon. I'm calling to see if you're familiar with our Caller ID Program?"

He yelled "NO!" and slammed down the phone. I quickly called him back and said, "That's because you're an asshole!"
One day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot. Some guy in a black BMW cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. I hit the horn and yelled that I'd been waiting for that spot, but the idiot ignored me.

I noticed a "For Sale" sign in his back window which included his phone number, so I wrote down the number.

A couple of day's later, right after calling the first asshole (I had his number on speed dial) I thought that I'd better call the BMW asshole, too

I said, "Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?"

"Yes, it is", he said.

"Can you tell me where I can see it?" I asked.

"Yes, I live at 34 Mowbray Blvd, in Vaucluse. It's a yellow house, and the car's parked right out in front."

"What's your name?" I asked.

"My name is Don Hansen," he said.

"When's a good time to catch you, Don?"

"I'm home every evening after five."

"Listen, Don, can I tell you something?"


"Don, you're an asshole!" Then I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too.

Now, when I had a problem, I had two assholes to call. Then I came up with an idea. I called Asshole #1. "Hello."

"You're an asshole!" (But I didn't hang up.)

"Are you still there?" he asked.

"Yeah," I said.

"Stop calling me," he screamed.

"Make me," I said.

"Who are you?" he asked.

"My name is Don Hansen."

"Yeah? Where do you live?"

"Asshole, I live at 34 Mowbray Blvd, Vaucluse, a yellow house, with my black Beamer parked in front."

He said, "I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your prayers."

I said, "Yeah, like I'm really scared, asshole," and hung up.

Then I called Asshole #2.
"Hello?" he said.

"Hello, asshole," I said.

He yelled, "If I ever find out who you are..."

"You'll what?" I said.

"I'll kick your ass," he exclaimed.

I answered, "Well, asshole, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now."

Then I hung up and immediately called the police, saying that I lived at 34 Mowbray Blvd, Vaucluse, and that I was on my way over there to kill my gay lover. Then I called Channel 9 News about the gang war going down in Mowbray Blvd, Vaucluse.

I quickly got into my car and headed over to Mowbray. I got there just in time to watch two assholes beating the crap out of each other in front of six cop cars, an overhead police helicopter and a news crew.

NOW I feel much better.

Anger management really works.

Getting Down To Brass Tacks

We talk about illegal criminal aliens all the time, about the impact they have on our economy and about the threats posed by their very entry into and presence in the United States.

Despite the penchant the left has for ignoring our laws regarding criminal immigration, supporting any influx of illegal aliens without checks, balances or compunction of any kind, this is a serious issue, and one explored in a way that puts it in brilliant perspective at Ravings Of A Mad Tech.

The Boob Tube

A blog sister whose politics and worldview are on a par with mine recently told me that she didn't like television shows like 24, and it set me to thinking --

I'm not a T.V. person at all, even though I own high definition sets ranging from 37" to 62", and subscribe to DirecTV. I watch the movie channels and the news channels, C-Span, etc.

There are four shows I've watched faithfully, two being Sleeper Cell and The Shield. The other two are La Femme Nikita and 24. All of these programs follow a serialized format, one episode leading into the next, and I've learned one fact -- they're difficult to follow between the lengthy commercial breaks and the week's distance between episodes.

Where 24 and LaFemme Nikita are concerned, I found the best way to watch them and keep up without losing either perspective or interest: rent them by the season from Netflix and watch the episodes in commercial-free order.

It works.

My favorite television characters are Nikita, Jack Bauer and Vic Mackey. The latter two are very similar to one another, except that Vic is corrupt while Jack is a single minded patriot whose life and all personal considerations, to him, are secondary to his job at the Counter-Terrorist Unit. When you watch one in certain situations, you think of the other -- their expressions are even the same. But you can follow the story lines and the characters much better if you watch the episodes in order and in multi-episode viewings.

Sleeper Cell, a Showtime series, is great where T.V. is concerned. I highly recommend it to viewers who are into the gender of T.V. that deals with terrorism, homeland security and the technical details of both, served up in realistic fashion.

And that's my relationship with the boob tube.

The French -- spit!

Despite their long has-been status as a country of importance, many French people continue to believe that they are a significant factor in the world of today.

These folks still think that their language should be a dominant language among others, and/or even that it should be accepted, period.

Jacques Chirac foolishly made this more than plain, as is evidenced in this post by my friend Raven at And Rightly So.

Speaking of France, another blog friend, GM, has more to say on the subject at GM's Corner.

A Brief Comment

We are constantly reading of nuclear weapons programs, the threat of nuclear weapons programs or evidence thereof as regards such insanely motivated leaderships as those in North Korea and Iran. For the past few years, we've watched as the so-called "Dear Leader" has developed weapons he shouldn't be allowed to have, now we're doing the same with Iran, whose president has made it quite clear that should he have the opportunity, he'll destroy Israel. What better way than with nukes? And this is one of the people who were in charge of the hostage situation at our embassy in Teheran a quarter century ago.

As NK's acquisition of nuclear technology should have been nipped in the bud five or so years ago, so should Iran's today.

It hasn't been and, to judge by the diplomatic baloney thusfar exercised, won't be. Several nations will sign off on meaningless sanctions against Iraq, and the leaders of Iraq will shrug, smile thinly and accept the largesse of Russia and China, whose aims are more along the lines of business than western security issues.

So we've got two unbalanced political regimes, one now armed with nuclear weapons and, presumably, usable delivery systems and another that will soon have them, and a surplus of bullshit impotent diplomacy allowing both tragedies-in-the-making to occur.

I don't blame any western political parties, nor do I find fault with any specific government.... I blame them all -- the fact that these two countries pose, or are about to pose nuclear threats to the western world can be laid squarely in the laps of our government and those of all countries with influence in the U.N. Security Council, regardless of the party of leadership.

There comes a time when talk becomes obviously useless, diplomacy moot and action the only option. This has happened where Kim Jong Il is concerned and now applies to Iran.

But nothing concrete will be done, even the Bush Administration, which is often these days unaccountably mellow when it should be more aggressive with its opposition, will probably go along with the "global community's" dumb, irresponsible, balls-less game, and Iran will have its nuclear weapons.

A World Without U.S. Power

The featured Op Ed in Thursday's Review & Outlook in WSJ's Opinion Journal proves a telling summary of the way global business and politics are prioritized by countries that criticize America's ultimately benevolent international actions above and beyond any consideration of humanity.

They criticize us for liberating the Iraqis and sticking around afterwards to help them develop a democratic government. They ignore the fact that we have opened schools and hospitals, upgraded local infrastructure, helped stimulate the Iraqi economy and that our troops interact positively with Iraqi citizens.

At the same time, these same countries block any outside interference in the ongoing genocidal events in Dharfur and have been doing so for some time, purely in the name of financial interests.

At places like Davos and Harvard, the world's sages rarely stop fretting about the dangers of a too powerful America. Well, if you want to know what the world looks like without U.S. leadership, Exhibit A is Darfur in Sudan.

Today's leading authority on Darfur is the political philosopher Thomas Hobbes, who prophesied a world "nasty, brutish and short." At least 200,000 civilians have been killed in the past three years and two million more have become refugees. The source of the problem is the Arab rulers in Khartoum, who have pursued an ethnic cleansing campaign against black Muslims in western Sudan. They've equipped the Janjaweed Arab tribesmen to do the dirty work, and that militia is now attacking civilians across the border in Chad, creating 20,000 more refugees.

To his credit, Kofi Annan started shouting about the problem two years ago, and former Secretary of State Colin Powell labeled it "genocide" not long after that. The U.N.'s mighty peace-making machinery then started to roll and . . . nothing. The Chinese (who have close commercial ties to Khartoum) and Russians have blocked any serious intervention. Arab members of the Security Council have also opposed any attempt to single out Khartoum.

And they say we're not the "good guys"? No, we're the evil, imperialist, colonialist, "anything for the oil" bully of the world.

Meanwhile, there is Dharfur, where Muslims oversee the butchery of thousands of fellow Muslims.

The Arab League--so quick to denounce Danish cartoons--has also stymied any global intervention to stop the murder of their fellow Muslims. Here's League Secretary General Amr Musa earlier this month: "In Sudan, there is a problem related to Darfur. We will listen to the Sudanese state minister to explain to us the developments in the issue of Darfur . . ." The League plans to hold its meeting next week--in Khartoum. The African Union has at least sent 7,000 troops to the region, but they are under-funded and under-equipped to enforce a truce that Sudan blatantly flouts. But the African failure is also political. In January the Union held its own summit in Khartoum, and next year it plans to award Sudan its presidency. The rule seems to be never to say a discouraging word about other African leaders, no matter how murderous.

This is nothing new, look at the way the rest of Africa's leaders turn a blind eye to the activities of colleagues like Robert Mugabe.

Africa still has a long way to go before it will be able to consider itself an even mostly civilized continent. Too many peoples over there refuse to emerge from a mindset time warp, choosing instead to remain under the control of despotic regimes. Perhaps that isn't quite fair -- most of the people in these hell holes live squalidly in-country or in slums in the cities and struggle to survive -- those whom the world hears from and those who run infrastructure live in major cities and enjoy most of the conveniences we do in the west. Many of those people are businessmen who engage in trade with their counterparts in other countries all over the world -- few of them could care less about the impoverished, for poverty and disease are as commonplace over there as Internet spam is over here. Most of the middle class figure there's nothing they can do about it anyway, and they harden their hearts. The upper class is so far isolated from the harsh realities of commonality that they don't think about it at all.

The political leadership could care less, their only concerns are money and power, the luxuries they provide and the security measures they must take to ensure that nobody takes it all away from them via a coup d'etat(ugh, French -- spit!--). So they take all rights away from those in circumstances prone to disaffection and use army troops as civil police. They embrace torture(not some brainless, maladjusted girl leading a naked man around on a leash, but the kind of brutal stuff that does permanent physical damage like the burning of flesh, electrocution or slow dismemberment), making entire families disappear and slaughtering entire villages as punishment for the imagined infractions of a very few. Corruption is "accepted" at every level of government. The poor majorities are forever crushed, hopeless generations that reproduce only to create future hopelessness.

This concept will be completely alien to most Americans, because the reality is not present anyplace in this country, despite the calculated, conscienceless exaggerations of the political left.

I saw this kind of civil subjugation and poverty in Central America back in the early 1970s, and it's not easily forgotten. Small children with enormous eyes, playing happily in open sewers, dripping sores all over their arms and legs. Soldiers in berets patrolling the streets armed with submachineguns, passersby averting their eyes so as not to attract their interest.

Leaders of countries who practice like regimes are not about to attack other leaders of the same pedigree.

It is in the nature of the United States to want to help other countries and their people when the need is there, and we have done so in volumes that dwarf all other nations' efforts to date, yet we're always told we're not giving enough or doing enough when we are going with the program financing or otherwise enforcing a U.N. agenda. On the other hand, we are harshly criticized by the same folks when we take care of or otherwise support programs that might interfere with their national business agendas.

Dharfur presents a fine example of the latter situation.

Fine, it's diplomatically PC to express outrage at the genocide perpetrated by the powers-that-be in Khartoum, but it's another matter entirely to leave them alone in the interests of commerce.

As it now stands, if the U.S. wants anything done about Dharfur, we'll have to address it ourselves.

It's been speculated that we haven't got the military manpower to spare for the kind of campaign that would entail, we are already spearheading the Global War On Terror and maintaining necessary large troop strength in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are scores of other nations that can deal with Dharfur, if, that is, the countries like Russia and the PRC who are making money off the present status quo are overruled.

Of course, as in all issues where strong and possibly long term military involvement is required, the U.N. and the weasel countries that seem to form its nucleus will, if intervention is decided upon, insist that the U.S. function as the prime mover, committing the most troops and the most money by far, and will then stand safely on the sidelines with many fewer troops of their own in harm's way and criticize our every move.

Well can we trade Louisiana for Puerto Rico?

Anyway, if you want to live in my great state, which is the greatest state of the FIFTY states then, you must come before me and explain why I should allow you to live in my state. No explanation under $1,000 will suffice.

In other announcements, our missionaries in Afghanistan and Iraq have successfully committed 4,503 acts of protest against Bush's Islamic Holocaust. It was a decent week as there were 59 more successful protests! However, that's four less than last week. Please keep the insurgents in your prayers and please donate when the plate is passed around.

Thank you Sarah Brady!! Wow, that was exciting and original. I really loved that line about us dying if Bush stays in office. Unfortunately it's too late. Because George W. Bush is in office, we are all doomed to die someday. George Hitler Warmonger Bush invented death. If it wasn't for George Bush, we'd all live forever! Well George Bush, guns, not wearing seatbelts, and cigarettes are what kills you and we'd all live forever if it wasn't for those four murderers.

And drunk driving, Republican drunk drivers are murderers, true liberal Democrats wear a seatbelt when they are driving with a little extra sauce so they aren't dangerous.

Many extremists are up in arms, because I kindly asked them to explain why they need guns. That's no excuse for them to call me delusional and point their bazookas in my face.

As you all know, I am for sensible gun control. I'm not trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens but I don't think 14 year old gang members need to have access to nuclear missiles and have tanks in their backyards. There's no reason why an 8 year old should have a high powered assault rifle or deadly hand guns in his middle school locker.

We aren't talking about guns you go hunting with or the type you would have a concealed weapons permit for. We are just talking about sensible gun legislation, the types of guns that are capable of killing people should be banned.

People like Dick Cheney oppose this because they support the killing of people. Dick Cheney, as we all know, shot, and nearly killed his close friend with a high powered assault rifle. Those are the types of guns we are talking about!

Let's take a look at the history of guns...

Cain and Able, two brothers. Cain was a farmer and while farming found a corn stalk gun. That corn stalk gun jumped into the hands of Cain and forced him to kill his brother. Cain loved his brother so much but that corn stalk gun forced Cain to kill Able against his will! This was the first recorded murder and like every single murder in the history of man, was committed by a high powered assault rifle.

Lizzy Borden found a high powered assault rifle called 'the axe' and shot her step mother nineteen times and her father numerous times. Fortunately for Lizzy Borden, the jury was liberal and compassionate and found her innocent. The high power 'AXE' assault rifle was off the hook because of radical right wing extremist called 'lumber jacks' wouldn't let congress outlaw the AXE assault rifle. We know the 'lumber jacks' are right wing extremist because they were very active in destroying the environment.

Poor Lizzy had to live the rest of her life with the shame of knowing that the high powered 'Axe' assault rifle was still free to force somebody else to kill their parents, just like it forced Lizzy to kill her parents, whom she loved very much.

And who can forget Jack? This poor guy was brainwashed by a high powered assault rifle known as 'The Knife'. This weapon was so powerful that it forced Jack to kill over and over again, and he would completely forget about it by morning time. Still to this day, that high powered assault rifle remains, somewhere in hiding. We must outlaw high powered assault rifles before 'The Knife' comes out of hiding!

You can call me delusional, you can make fun of me all that you want because I want Illinois to answer for crimes, but Illinois is still just a suburb of Chicago. I am still the mayor of Chicago and its suburbs, Illinois included!

Gun extremist in Illinois are guilty of the murder of two teen age girls because they continue to aid and abet the insane criminal 'high powered assault rifle'. I have the police and the District Attorney's office working hard to outlaw the high powered assault rifle that did this. If you know who was forced to pull the trigger of the high powered assault rifle that killed these girls, please let him know that we understand he didn't want to kill the girls, the gun made him do it.

We will grant him complete amnesty because he isn't responsible for the gun crime, the gun is. Guns, as I laid out so very clearly, are responsible for every single murder in the history of mankind. Ban all guns now!

Let us bow our heads and don't forget your tax payment. Holy Spirit Che Guevara, please give us the power to create a more secure government, one that gives us a division of government that is bigger and better than before. One that will protect us from Hitler Warmonger's evil friends in the UAE. Please, oh Lord, let Democrats win so we can bring the war on terrorism back to where it belongs, here at home, within our borders. We ask this in your name Holy Spirit Che Guevara.

Senator Feingold: One Lonely Man

Senator Russ Feingold's proposal to censure President Bush over the Chief Executive's counterterror measure of having the NSA monitor telephone calls between terrorists and their co-conspirators between phones inside the U.S. and phones overseas has his fellow Senate Democrats scuttling around in profound embarrassment as they desperately "avoid the media at all costs" on the issue.

Democratic senators, filing in for their weekly caucus lunch yesterday, looked as if they'd seen a ghost.

"I haven't read it," demurred Barack Obama (Ill.).

"I just don't have enough information," protested Ben Nelson (Neb.). "I really can't right now," John Kerry (Mass.) said as he hurried past a knot of reporters -- an excuse that fell apart when Kerry was forced into an awkward wait as Capitol Police stopped an aide at the magnetometer.

Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) brushed past the press pack, shaking her head and waving her hand over her shoulder. When an errant food cart blocked her entrance to the meeting room, she tried to hide from reporters behind the 4-foot-11 Barbara Mikulski (Md.).

"Ask her after lunch," offered Clinton's spokesman, Philippe Reines. But Clinton, with most of her colleagues, fled the lunch out a back door as if escaping a fire.

So this one senator, who mistakenly "spoke for his party", now feinds himself standing by himself after putting his fellow Dems on the spot. It seems that as the midterm elections grow nearer, even the Democrats who have shamelessly slandered the President over the War On Terror are beginning to attempt to try and create temporary facades of responsibility and patriotism, and Mr. Feingold is raining on their parade.

It's enough to make you laugh with free, uncontrolled mirth at the way these opportunists and liars suddenly hide themselves from their own media to the point of sneaking out convenient back doors.

Poor, lonely Senator Feingold is understandably piqued at the lack of backup he's receiving from his Democrat colleagues.

Sen. Russell Feingold on Tuesday blamed fellow Democrats for inaction on his stalled resolution to censure President Bush for his authorizing the National Security Agency's electronic terrorist surveillance program.

"I'm amazed at Democrats ... cowering with this president's numbers so low," said Feingold, D-Wis. "The administration ... just has to raise the specter of the War on Terror, and Democrats run and hide."

Heh heh heh....

Tom Tancredo For President!

In Tom Tancredo, we have a strong conservative who is committed to goals such as limited government, the right of American citizens to keep and bear arms, secure borders and realistic immigration laws. He looks to me like the ideal Republican candidate for 2008, and I certainly hope he runs.

Here's his condensed bio as it appears on his website:

Congressman Tom Tancredo was born and raised in Colorado. The grandson of an Italian immigrant grandfather, Tom Tancredo worked his way through college to become a school teacher, a legislator, a leader in President Reagan's renewal of America, a principled conservative thinker and Republican leader.

Representative Tancredo was first elected to Congress in 1998. Tom is now running for his fourth term in the U.S. House of Representatives. Tom serves on the International Relations Committee, the Resources Committee and the all-important Budget Committee. In addition, Congressman Tancredo formed and is Chairman of the 72 member Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus.

For more background on Congressman Tancredo and a read of his ongoing works, this is his official website.

My blog friend Raven over at And Rightly So has begun a Tancredo blog roll to include any fellow bloggers interested in posting endorsements for or news concerning Tom Tancredo.

While the man is running for another term as a Colorado representative, it is my belief and that of others that he could better serve his country from the Oval Office.

There is a website that refers to itself as the "unofficial Tom Tancredo for President" website that's also well worth a good perusal here.

Together, perhaps we can plant the seed that might grow and blossom into a campaign at the end of which the right politician wins the Presidency in 2008.

There's a column in today's Jewish World Review online by Johnathan Tobin on the United Nations Relief And Works Agency{UNRWA}, that discusses a long ongoing issue that the weasels fine folks at Turtle Bay have been ignoring for years, an issue that's been snowballing quietly along without any coverage by the liberal media that wouldn't be dwarfed by their tireless flogging of Abu Ghraib, the federal response to Katrina or the monitoring of terrorist phone conversations by the Bush Administration.

As detailed in a new Jewish Telegraphic Agency series of reports on the topic, UNRWA's record is one of complicity not only with the political ends of the Palestinian movement, but with its violent tactics as well.

Many of UNRWA's employees are members not only of mainstream Palestinian terror factions such as Fatah, but of the Islamist Hamas group as well. UNRWA suffered a major embarrassment when its former director, the Norwegian bureaucrat Peter Hansen, admitted as much two years ago, saying it was no big deal. Indeed, in the recent Palestinian election, a number of UNRWA workers were Hamas parliamentary candidates.

The U.N. is not, nor has it ever been, a friend to Israel. When Palestinian terrorists blow up a dining room full of Jews having a holiday meal, the Israelis get mild condolences from Koffi Annon while the Palestinians must make due with an equally mild rebuke. When the Israelis counterstrike, they are victimizing the poor, downtrodden, stateless Arabs who have Semtexed their way out of having a state of their own repeatedly.

What did Abba Eban say?

"The Palestinians never lose the chance to miss an opportunity," or something like that.

Instead, they terrorize, and much of that tax generated bounty we and other countries, via the U.N., send to the UNRWA helps to finance that terrorism. There are even Hamas terrorists on UNRWA staff!

What's up with that?

Only an idiot could believe that the U.N. officials who oversee UNRWA aren't totally cognizant of this state of affairs. If they aren't, they should be delivering croissants door to door or cleaning fish for a living, not heading up an agency of this magnitude at the United Nations.

Back in October, I was emailed a link to an in-depth article on UNRWA written by a journalist who is an expert on Arab-Israeli affairs and related terrorism issues and a tenacious investigator, the venerable Arlene Kushner, and I posted on it and quoted large segments of the article.

It's a great and informative read, and can be found here.

UNRWA is a corrupt, terror sponsoring disaster financed mostly with our money, and unlike other U.N. agencies assembled to help refugees, it is a Palestinians-only venue and one that has not only failed to produce its stated goals, but managed to oversee the exponential increase, through generations of procreation, of its client load.

The Hammas members on its payroll must laugh at us every day.

Creeping Liberal Victories

Last year I hit the half century mark, and I know I’m not the only conservative who’s done so and taken the time, from time to time, to compare the way things were when I was growing up and the way they are now.

Of course we’ve advanced technologically, more so in the quarter century since Armstrong took that small step for mankind than we did in all the centuries that came before, but socially and politically we in America seem to have regressed in many ways, the changes engendered willingly by Americans – despite the fact that allowing this regression has damaged and continues increasingly to damage our country.

The regression I’m talking about is the decline of patriotism and love of country, the gradual abolishment of our morality, values and the relationship with God our founding fathers incorporated into the documents that have defined our great nation since its inception.

The source of the problem lies to the left of our political center, emanating from the once credible Democratic Party that has since allowed itself to be hijacked by liberals whose only goal seems to be to replace our capitalist republic, synonymous with the awesome success that has made us the richest and most powerful country on earth, with socialism, which has proven time and time again to fail its constituents through astronomic taxation and the removal of personal responsibility from individual citizens by forcing all citizens to carry the weight of a non-achieving and/or unambitious/unmotivated few while shouldering the blame for the failures, transgressions, laziness, stupidity, negligence and other shortcomings of the few.

When I was a kid back in the 1950s and 1960s, a Democrat (all the way up until Jimmy Carter’s presidency taught me the error of my ways) in a Democrat family, nobody in my household ever spoke as disrespectfully and derogatorily of a sitting President as Democrats do today. Comparing a President with Adolf Hitler would have been unthinkable to anyone with a patriotic bone in his body and pushing leftist politics on school children would have been the formula for both parental and administrative outrage leading to the dismissal of an offending teacher. Even with the outpouring of rage and hatred toward the government by the hippie movement over Vietnam and the draft and the support of same by the liberal media and a bunch of ambitious and feckless politicians, there was little if any invective of today’s magnitude advanced by said politicians or newsies. The pols and scribes won their battle – General Giap admitted after we pulled out of Vietnam that we were winning, and had it not been for this loud dissent from those politicians and the media, the North Vietnamese would have surrendered long before our withdrawal.

Certainly, public school faculties maintained the discipline not to preach personal politics to pupils who were there because they had to be, nor to echo the anti-war rhetoric of the left.

Now, thanks to the slow creep of liberal judicial and political influence, teachers’ unions and Marxist organizations like the ACLU being as powerful as they are, teachers like that Jay Bennish asshat are free to rain their farfetched, anti-American diatribes, unchecked, upon their students without restraint and still keep their jobs. Any parental outrage that occurs is all but swept under a rug as the liberal educational system gradually pushes parents’ say in their children’s educations out the door.

In school, we were also given the option of taking a moment for silent prayer every morning. No particular religion was endorsed and we were under no obligation to pray. Nothing was being forced on anyone, nobody was being exposed to anyone else’s beliefs.

Now, thanks to left wing judges, sleazy opportunistic leftist lawyers and again, the ACLU (also sleazy, opportunistic leftist lawyers), such prayers are illegal as they have been falsely branded as a “church and state” issue. It’s come to the point where the ACLU can successfully sue any public institution that sports the Ten Commandments or a Christmas message.

And of course, there’s the Global War On Terror: Muslim extremists have been waging war on our country in one way and another for twenty five years, give or take. They became emboldened during the Clinton Administration, when that President allowed them to commit terrorist attacks on U.S. embassies and one of our naval vessels with virtual impunity, and early into the Bush Administration they brought us 9/11. Unlike his predecessor, George W. Bush responded decisively, first by taking Afghanistan away from the Taliban and helping promote a democracy in its place, then by doing the same in Iraq. He has strengthened our homeland security venues so that no further acts of Islamic terror have occurred, though there have been foiled attempts.

What say the Democrats?

Angry that Bush defeated straw man Al Gore in the 2000 elections and then went on to win a second term, beating John Kerry, the Democrats under their liberal masters have joined the “angry left” in placing anti-Bush politics over the well being of America and her citizens.

Knowing full well that Islamofascism poses what is probably the greatest threat to the safety of U.S. citizens in our nation’s history, they impede Bush’s defensive efforts on that quarter purely in the interests of attempting to make him fail. Democrat politicians rail against the Administration with irresponsible slurs and slanders, they make pronouncements that demoralize our troops in harm’s way and encourage our enemies to fight harder and terrorize more, they support the media when they print or broadcast secret defense data.

We can’t speak plainly and accurately without being censured for political incorrectness or accused of bigotry. A bunch of Muslims can blow people up, slice up a citizen for disagreeing with their views, burn hundreds of cars, vandalize, set embassies on fire in the name of Islam… And the media will bend over backwards to omit the fact that these crimes and terrorist acts were done in Allah’s name, by followers of Islam. At airports and other transportation venues, searching a dark-skinned Arab male who fits the profile of every terrorist in recent history is “racial profiling”, just to appease a few peoples’ sensibilities we have to ignore the natural suspects and search the more unlikely passengers, such as little old Caucasian grandmas and old men in wheelchairs, or preadolescent girls with Barbie dolls.

Had this country been under attack by a huge, well financed, globally based terrorist organization when I was a kid, had an attack the equivalent of 9/11 happened on our soil, the order of the day would have been “rally ‘round the President,” not “Kennedy/Johnson/Nixon/Ford lied, people died.” Our politicians, the media and most Democrats would have acknowledged that we were defending ourselves, that failure to support the administration’s efforts would result in Americans being murdered on our very streets.

Today, things are just the opposite.

The fact that Republicans have been the majority on the Hill since the early 1990s and have been gaining more power ever since renders the underlying victories of the liberals a paradox of sorts. They have woven atheism, socialism and PC into the fabric of our society and even now are twisting the Constitution around to interpretations that have little relationship to the original text. They have found the means to represent child molesters as regular Joes and made same sex marriage a front burner issue, just about turned our schools into anti-American, leftist propaganda institutions and vilified our primary religions while approving that religion which is practiced by people who want to kill us because we are “infidels.” They’ve obstructed the President’s national security policies in times of a serious threat to our country and enabled frivolous lawsuits to become as commonplace as a trip to the grocery store.

And the level of outrage we would have seen during my childhood years had such things even been dreamed of is simply not there, except among those of us who are informed and active on the conservative side.

Did I mention that there was some regression afoot?

The Newspaper Of Record, Indeed!

Diana West has a spot-on commentary about the way the New York Times, once again, manages to go the PC route and ignore pertinent facts in order to whitewash the violence and the suppressed status of women that are both fundamentals of Islam.

Her commentary covers a three part interview with a New York Imam that just concluded in the New York Times.

Such journalistic jaw-droppers abound: not only gaping holes, like the one above, but also dead ends that leave countless questions that the female reporter, it seems, never thought to ask. For example, she notes, over six months of interviews, the Egyptian-born imam refused to shake her hand. "He offers women only a nod," she writes. Why is shaking hands with a woman "improper"? What does the imam think about sexual equality? She doesn't tell us. In Belgium last year, she doesn't mention, the female president of the parliament made headlines for canceling a meeting with an Iranian delegation over this same refusal to shake a woman's hand (the parliamentarian's own); while in Holland, the English-language blog Zacht Ei reported, a Muslim man lost a month's worth of welfare benefits for not only refusing to shake hands with female municipal employees, but also refusing to acknowledge their presence. This is supposed to be "the story of Mr. Shata's journey west," but the story bypasses such landmark issues.

Instead, we get a load of happy talk: "Married life in Islam is an act of worship," Mr. Shata says. So impressed were the editors of The New York Times by this load that they ran the quotation, not just above the fold, but across the very top of the front page over a gold-bathed family photo four columns wide. Does Miss Reporter ask the imam to reconcile this ecstatic notion with the Islamic custom of arranged and forced marriages, the spate of spousal abuse and "honor killings" within European Muslim communities...

UN Envoy: It's All The Jews' Fault

It just doesn't stop, whether it's the Arabs, antisemitic liberals in the west or members of the U.N.

This time, it's a South African attorney who is an envoy to the useless, feckless, soulless, spineless, corrupt, pro-terrorist, anti-American, pro-marxism bunch of diplofux at Turtle Bay, one John Dugard.

From an article emailed me today by Ryan Jones, Co-Editor and Website Manager at Jerusalem Newswire,

Almost completely disregarding Palestinian Arab aggression against Israel's Jews, a United Nations envoy has sought to lay the blame for regional conflict at the doorstep of the Jewish state by misrepresenting and exaggerating Israel's defensive measures and isolated acts of frustration.

In a special report prepared for next week's annual meeting of the UN Human Rights Commission, South African lawyer John Dugard charged:

"It seems that settlers are able to terrorize Palestinians and destroy their trees and crops with impunity."
What he failed to mention, however, are the innumerable stoning, shooting and bombing attacks carried out against the Jewish settlers by the hostile Arab population surrounding them. Often those attacks are launched from the cover of olive groves and fruit orchards, prompting frustrated and threatened Israelis to take matters into their own hands.

Dugard also criticized official Israeli defensive measures both in Gaza and the "West Bank."

So he's saying that the Palestinians are blameless, and the Jews are attacking them on a regular basis for no reason, right?

Left out of the equation were the hundreds of rockets and mortar shells that have been fired from Gaza at nearby Negev towns and villages since Israel withdrew from the Strip last summer. Nearly 500 Kassam rockets have been fired since the beginning of this year alone.

Dugard evidently carries with him the same attitude that all Islamist terrorists do: Whatever atrocities we subject you to are perfectly acceptable and not subject to recriminations, because Allah's on our side and therefore anything we do is right. Anything you do to defend yourselves against our terror attacks is tantamount to oppression, genocide, unreasonable violence and acts against God.

Where Is The Outrage?

I have been kindasorta out of things the last several days as I finally did something about the disappointment of DirecWay satellite broadband:

Despite their self description as "high speed Internet", they are barely any faster than dial-up and infinitely slower than DSL, yet more than twice as expensive as the latter. They are not as Windows friendly as one might hope, and I observed that the first time I ever ran into any identity theft programs, in this case some asshat in Miami using my card info to make and attempt to make online purchases, was after I began using DirecWay -- so much for any kind of ISP security, and the security system I employ on my computer is among the best.

So I've just divested myself of DirecWay(unfortunately, I had to purchase the satellite dish and modem when I signed up), but when I cut off the service I informed them that I will not pay them the early cancellation fee, even if I have to spend 10 times the amount fighting them in court. Since I had to close out the card I was using in order to curtail future fraud on my account and it was the same one I was using for Direcway, they'll have to go after the fee the hard way if they want to try and collect it.

I now have Road Runner, and it's awesome, even faster than DSL.

That said, I've been catching up on my reading in the Blogosphere, and simply must point you to a purrrrfect commentary on the impact of illegal criminal immigration on America, posted on 28 February by my blog sister RomeoCat over at Cathouse Chat.

S.S.D.D. In Leftsville

Well, the Dems are still banging away at the NSA's monitoring of outbound telephone conversations by suspected terrorist associates here in the United States, still obstructing Bush Administration efforts to keep Americans safe from terrorism.

Stifling partisanship is preventing the Senate Intelligence Committee from overseeing the nation's spy agencies, the Senate's Republican leadership says.

But the top Senate Democrat says the Republican-controlled panel is falling down on its responsibility to hold the Bush administration accountable.

...to hold the Bush administration accountable is the operative concept here, of course.

Not that of giving the proverbial rat's rectum about the safety of Americans, nor of anything else except the usual partisan political agenda of discrediting the President.

Luckily, the majority of Americans, since immediately after the treasonous lefty scum at the New York Times aided and abetted terrorism via reporting U.S. defense secrets when they broke the story, listened or read about it with mild to middling interest, thanked Bush and the NSA for doing what they have to do to protect us and went about their respective business.

So what are lefties like Reid, Rockefeller and Feinstein doing besides flogging what amounts to a dead horse? Why, they're trudging desperately down a veritable road to nowhere because a)they have no other ammo in their political armory at the moment, and b) if they push the issue hard enough and get it back to kerfuffle level, they can waste Congress', and therefore the taxpayers'(you and me, folks) time while preventing the timely addressing of other, more vital issues.

"Now why would they want to do that?" You ask.

Because the more obstacles the Democrats put in the way of Bush's prosecution of the Global War On Terror and the enforcement of Homeland Security policies, the more likely another 9/11 style incident could have of occuring in a U.S. city, and that would reflect as a grand failure on Dubya's part that could conceivably give the left, albeit at great and mortal cost to thousands of American citizens, a shot at getting back both the White House and a majority on the Hill(that's a pretty brazen thing for me to write, perhaps, but in view of the Democrats' treacherous collective behavior almost from the outset of the GWOT, I see no other possible explanation. Their ruthlessly single-minded concern is to score political victories. When they demonstrate otherwise, maybe I'll find my point of view modified).


Because the less that gets accomplished during this President's watch and therefore the more this lack of results hurts the American people, the more opportunity the Democrats have to cite supposed inadequacy on the part of the administration and the GOP during this year's and 2008's election campaigns.

Sounds a lot to me like sabotage, friends, and not even a little to me like any kind of patriotism, love of country or concern for what happens to the people these politicians were elected to serve.
