Half Empty SOB's

You know, what the hell is wrong with people! The Iraqi vote is a perfect situation to see bias, inappropriate mean spirited hoping for failure bias, in action. Just look at the various media and news sources...some talk about the positive step this is for a nation, the great quotes from Iraqis coming out of the voting booth, the positive feelings they now have along with different attitude towards the insurgents and those who think democracy has no place in this part of the world. AND THEN, there are those who just have to spin it negative. Oh sure this is great, but blah, blah, blah. Who is the biggest offender today? None other than John Kerry.

Un-f'ing believable! Gee, way to spread the spirit of democracy John! People having a voice in their own future when previous they mostly just feared for the lives and expected no future is huge! It's contagious, it can make others in the region believe that dramatic change can also happen for them. Most of all if people believe they have a future, one that can be prosperous and safe for generations to come...they will in fact die to get it and protect it...that's the real trick and that's what will also result in US and the brits pulling out.

So, when Kerry's says this is "significant" and "important" but said they should not be "overhyped" that is just flat out wrong and I believe an unforgivable political stance and nothing more. It is clear to me that in fact what the region, the world, needs is for us to HPYE the hell out of this. The hype should be: Do you live under an evil dictator, under a murdering regime? You to can destroy and remove the evil and employ a system of choice and free will! It's called democracy, give it try!

More evidence of success haters for political gain....of course Pelosi is in this camp....but the Bush haters will now do what Dem Senator Harry Reid did....he doesn't acknowledge the tremendous step that just took place in Iraq for what it really is and then says the president must give timelines, dates and such. It will be easy to say "see, we didn't reduce troop levels to 50k by June of 06' like Bush said". jackass! How about this quote from Reid: "It's time that America stood tall again as the real superpower that we are; time that we led the world on dealing with these terrible threats and building a durable peace instead of just hanging back and letting others show the way." Ah, excuse me Harry, ah can you point me to another leader who has helped spread democracy more than Bush in the last 2 years? Or another world leader who has shown they're dedicated to destroying those who would destroy us more than Bush? Who is leading, showing the way while Bush has been hanging back?

Like I said in a previous post...we are going to stir up the trouble makers to act because their existence requires that we tolerate their existence. Bush has his faults and isn't the most eloquent (although Peloci's ABC's comment is incredibly disrespectful) but he won't tolerate their existence and scares the crap out of our enemies. Those who would kill us have no choice but to try and appeal to the Kerry's, Reid's and Peloci's and those who agree with them in America by stepping up their terror...because if the majority feel like Bush and me they're toast!

You can't fight the will of a people!

For those of you who think this vote in Iraq is of little importance, I actually believe this could be a turning point for the entire region and the world. It's clear from the stories you here about Iraq's facing death by voting and so putting their lives on the line for a chance at a free system just as Americans have done thru our history and in Iraq. The NYTimes has one such story in their International addition today which goes:

For an instant, Ms. Musawi, a 22-year-old physical therapist, thought it might be too dangerous to go to the polls. "And then, hearing those explosions, it occurred to me - the insurgents are weak, they are afraid of democracy, they are losing," Ms. Musawi said, standing in the Marjayoon Primary School, her polling place. "So I got my husband, and I got my parents and we all came out and voted together."

The Times quotes 80-year-old Rashid Majid: "We have freedom now, we have human rights, we have democracy. We will invite the insurgents to take part in our system. If they do, we will welcome them. If they don't, we will kill them."

And a 33 yr old election worker: "Do you hear that, do you hear the bombs?" said Hassan Jawad, a 33-year-old election worker at Lebanon High School, calling over the thud of an exploding shell. "We don't care. Do you understand? We don't care." "We all have to die," Mr. Jawad said. "To die for this, well, at least I will be dying for something."

I found this NYTimes piece on WSJ best of the web by Taranto, and I found his introduction to his commentary on this election appropriate in lumping together a few evil men with some not so obviously evil to some, his intro goes like this:

Yesterday was a great day to be an American, and an even better day to be an Iraqi. Notwithstanding the best efforts of Osama bin Laden, Barbara Boxer, Jacques Chirac, Ted Kennedy, Saddam Hussein and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, millions of Iraqis cast their first free ballots. The scenes of joyous Iraqis embracing freedom were as moving as watching Germans dance on the Berlin Wall 15 years ago--and all the more impressive given that Iraqi voters faced real physical danger from terrorists seeking a return to tyranny.

Treasonous Kennedy!

Apparently many found Kennedy's words the other day approaching treason as I do. There's plenty of examples but thanks to my dad for sending me the blog post of the managing editor of the Washington Times from Thursday...

None dare call it treason
For many Americans Sen. Ted Kennedy has long been a caricature of liberal elitism, the bloated shell of what once was the youthful beauty of change. He has long lost the ability to shock with his antics, whether it's his questionable private behavior, returning the outreach of the Bush family with cheap shots galore or playing so loose with the facts in his public pronouncements that Jane Fonda looks like an intellectual heavyweight by comparison.

But wait, there's fire in the old warhorse yet. In a speech in Washington today, Mr. Kennedy became the first senator to call for the early withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq. Drawing a parallel with the Vietnam war (why is it that liberals are so hot to champion U.S. failure?), he declared that "the U.S. military presence has become part of the problem, not part of the solution. We need a new plan that sets fair and realistic goals for self-government in Iraq, and works with the Iraqi government on a specific timetable for the honorable homecoming of our forces."

In other words, let's ignore the sacrifice of those who have died to defeat a brutal dictator and to establish a fledgling democracy in the heart of the Middle East, and get the hell out as quickly as we can. Now that's statesmanship. Three days before courageous Iraqis risk their lives to vote in their first-ever democratic election. Now that's timing. To appease the Saddam holdovers who are brutally killing and maiming their own women and children to return to power. Now that's the American way.

And this is the man regarded by many as the senior statesman of the Democratic Party.
-- Fran Coombs, Managing Editor

More...from WSJ's Taranto Best of the Web on Friday...just a small piece:

A successful election in Iraq will be a triumph for the Bush doctrine and the strongest rebuke yet to those Democrats who learned from Vietnam that America is a force for ill in the world. Ted Kennedy is, as The Wall Street Journal puts it today, "cheerleading for America to fail" because his ideology leaves him unfit to cope with American success. If he has his way, democracy in Iraq will suffer the same fate as Mary Jo Kopechne.

Friday Roundup!

Cheney's attire at an Auschwitz ceremony questioned! What a total F'ing non story..give me a break!

Love of Beer Free's Avalanche Victim! This was pretty funny and you have to give the guy credit for figuring out a way to get rid of the snow..clearly his love of beer and the given in his mind that it wouldn't go anywhere other than down his throat prevented him from considering just pooring the beer on the snow. Instead he had to wait for the trip thru his GI track! :)

Insurgents warn Iraqis not to vote. It's very important that no matter what the turnout, no matter what technical problems are encountered, no matter how imperfect this vote is, that it happen. People seem to ignore the success of Afghanistan and how truly universal the thirst for freedom and to be represented by those of your choosing in a government structure is. It's also worth noting that prior to voting Iraqis are required to show an's time we did the same. The number of things infinitely less important than voting require you to prove your identity with a drivers license (or other id) and nobody complains about it! So ask yourself...who opposes having people prove their identity (well, ok this is not a great proof but as least its something) at the polling place? Anybody, anybody know? The DEMOCRATS!!! Why? People show their ids for all kinds of things so the claim that it's intimidating is insane. So what possible argument makes sense? It's pretty obvious why the lefties don't want this simple check to be done...they believe that those who actually shouldn't be voting are likely to vote Democrat. I also completely believe that they also like how easy it is to commit voter fraud today.

Democrats would have everything in Iraq and around the world fail if it hurts Bush! Well, that's at least the headline I create after reading the speech by Edward (let her drown) Kennedy. Just days before another historic (Afghanistan being the first) election in the middle east Kennedy sure knows how to give some encouragement doesn't he. And I love this in his speech; "The nations in the Middle East are independent, except for Iraq, which began the 20th century under Ottoman occupation and is now beginning the 21st century under American occupation." Oh really? Apparently a nation being "independent" in his definition has no relation to the plight of the citizens who live in that nation. And as the WSJ's Taranto points out Kennedy doesn't seem to know his century boundaries very well since the 21st century began more than four years ago, when Iraq was under Baathist occupation. If some republican made a blunder like that it would be big time fodder for our biased media.

Academic Cancer Continues

A Colorado University prof says those who died in the 9/11 attacks were not innocents, and calls those who directed the planes that day were "combat teams" and not terrorists. This is exactly what's wrong with academia and overly left liberals. Those with no real American spirit and patriotism would say this is good diversity of thought and belongs in our education system. Bullshit! This guy spouts complete lies about our having thrown the first stone, but worse is that this is an attitude of sympathy towards a terrorist who has no clue about history (accurate or otherwise) and has a completely brainwashed and naive understanding of the world. These terrorists have the idea that Americans are evil drilled into their heads. We are not a perfect democracy, we make mistakes, but their has been no American Hitler who has orchestrated the purposeful killing of 100 let alone 500,000 children in the middle east. However, might that be justified under some scenario? You bet, I don't think anyone involved in dropping the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki felt good about civilians who were about to be vaporized, but in the end that act saved countless lives far beyond the cost. You just have to decide if you want to be on the side who gets to make that choice or not. If you're not with us, you're with them!

Please, please don't hurt us!!!!!

Oh my, have you heard? A sharp warning from Iran! They will respond to any "unwise measure". "With reliance on enormous popular support, diplomatic capacity and full military capability, the Islamic Republic of Iran will firmly respond to any unwise measure or plan," foreign ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said in a statement responding to "recent comments by US officials". Really? You have enormous popular support from whom? And, I'm sorry maybe you can explain the specter of fear we should have from your "diplomatic capacity". And lastly, you even coming within an inch of having a "full military capability" is exactly the reason there is saber rattling going on!

Kerry & Boxer, WHAT A JOKE!

Could you imagine, regardless of the Iraq war, if a senator from Mass and Cal had been the only NO votes on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to endorse a black women DEMOCRAT for Sec State? It would be the biggest race scandal in decades! You really must read the transcripts of the exchanges between these two and Condi Rice. It was just old partisan foley, a retread of the same old anti-Bush mantra...they only took this stance with Rice and voted NO in order to show their base that they oppose everything Bush! Their exchanges looked childish and bitter to me and would to anybody being honest about it. Boxer in particular was also prone to falsehoods that James Taranto of the WSJ weblog points out in his piece today. During one exchange where Boxer just has to say one more time that Bush lied about WMD's in order to use force in Iraq, Rice very calmly explains to the senator that it wasn't just WMD's providing some detail. To which Boxer replies:

Well, you should read what we voted on when we voted to support the war, which I did not, but most of my colleagues did. It was WMD, period. That was the reason and the causation for that, you know, particular vote.

Well, Boxer is either stupid, or didn't read the authorization to use force in Iraq, or didn't understand it, or is just ignoring the facts to support her weak position...or all the above. Directly from the authorization to use force (which by the way is about 3 pages max):

Whereas Iraq persists in violating resolution of the United Nations Security Council by continuing to engage in brutal repression of its civilian population thereby threatening international peace and security in the region, by refusing to release, repatriate, or account for non-Iraqi citizens wrongfully detained by Iraq, including an American serviceman, and by failing to return property wrongfully seized by Iraq from Kuwait; . . .

The President is authorized to use the Armed Forces of the United States as he determines to be necessary and appropriate in order to--
(1) defend the national security of the United States against the continuing threat posed by Iraq; and
(2) enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions regarding Iraq.

Actual reality and facts don't matter to Boxer....she just wants to be on record, and in the media, as opposing anything Bush to make her base (primarily leftist wackos and gays) happy. Of course her base will laud her for it as they are blind to the childish and bitter display the actual video of the exchanges between Boxer and Rice show. Boxer is at best unknowing or ignorant, at worst a liar with none of a virtue that Rice has in spades....integrity.

And apparently more comi a-hole wacko Dems want to get their mug and vile words out to the media so that their anti-american a-hole constituents see them combating everything Bush!

CONFIRMATION...Boxer is an illiterate bee-atch!
A friend informed me of a petition Boxer has on her website about the Rice hearings.....still asking the old, dead, conspiracy theory questions. I can only conclude Boxer can't actually read since the 911 commission report along with plenty of other senate and non-White House produced material on Iraq, the intelligence leading up to the war and everything that has gone on answer these questions fully! Oh, and look how many "Americans" have signed her petition, just over 60k...that's about the number of gay couples in SF who applied for marriage licenses (I made that last part up!).

Ashamed to be American? LEAVE!!!!!

I find it interesting all the leftist who are so ashamed for someone here or abroad to think they may have either voted for Bush or agree with anything he does. Do you recall all the Clinton scandals and how strongly those on the right felt he had no morals, no ethics, and couldn't be trusted? Did you see these right wingers wearing bracelets or shirts to make sure their feelings on this were thrust into your face or to make sure you knew they didn't vote for him? Did they organize to try and influence the entire country to not spend a single dollar, on anything, on inauguration day as a protest? Of course not! But that's what's going on with the left! They want you to know as they pass you by on the street that Bush is not their president with a bracelet.....others are asking you not to spend a red cent on that day! Great idea, hurting the economy is really going to galvanize people to your cause. This is like the idiots who mess up traffic on SF streets or bridges...all this form of "civil disobedience" does is move people further from your view and ensures they detest whomever the group is that organized the stunt. Fortunately the no-spend group called have, at best, about 1/10th the number of people who visit just one of the 20 super malls here in the Bay Area participating in their protest...and that's for the entire US!!! Hahahaha...IDIOTS!!!!

But really what I would like to encourage is self exile for these fools. There is no logical argument for being unsupportive of a president across the board, or for being embarrassed to be an American. If you no longer feel proud to be an American, or you're not an American first above all else, regardless of our missteps or mistakes, then you're not a patriot and you should give away all your US based possessions to UNICEF (another joke of a charity by the way) and get the hell out. If you contact me I will personally pay for your airfare....I have form you must fill out denouncing your citizenship, but that shouldn't be hard for you to do!

Dems Continue Enemy Aid & Comfort

You won't see anything in the press about how well Alberto Gonzales is handling the grilling mostly by Democrap senators. The press also want give you any of flavor of the questioning that clearly is rooted in concern for our enemies over our citizens. The tone in this hearing is that torture is condoned by the administration and by'll note that much of the press got it wrong saying that Gonzales wrote a memo to the president that terrorist prisoners were not protected by the Geneva convention. The fact is that Gonzales received the memo from the Justice Department and then gave his opinion (which is correct) of the memo to the president. Of course the press seems to ignore when people are doing their jobs and not trying to figure out how to torture people with impunity. The president's statement on this memo was;

"I accept the legal conclusion of the Department of Justice and determine that none of the provisions of Geneva apply to our conflict with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan or elsewhere throughout the world because, among other reasons, Al Qaeda is not a High Contracting Party to Geneva.
Of course, our values as a for us to treat detainees humanely, including those who are not legally entitled to such treatment...As a matter of policy, the United States Armed Forces shall continue to treat detainees humanely and, to the extent appropriate and consistent with military necessity, in a manner consistent with the principles of Geneva."

Of course this is interpreted by the left as an edict to torture terrorist and suspected terrorist prisoners. IDIOTS! has a nice piece on this and points out one of Gonzales' responses to the idiocy he is being subjected to, in this case from Senator Lindsay Graham:

"Senator, there is a lot to respond to in your statement. I would respectfully disagree with your statement that we're becoming more like our enemy. We are nothing like our enemy, Senator. While we are struggling, mightily, trying to find out what happened at Abu Ghraib, they are beheading people like Danny Pearl and Nick Berg. We are nothing like our enemies, Senator."

Jew Hating Duke!

First.....hahahaha...did you think I was serious with that last post? No forking way I'm going to do a bunch of mushy raw raw happy posts...we got some f'd up people and situations and we need to start kicking some ass! A good place to start is Duke University....this falls under the category of "you have to be f'ing kidding me"! Check this op/ed by a two Duke PHD candidates in the WSJ. I can't imagine, even for a second, how the president of Duke can with a straight face defend this obvious duplicity. I don't care about free speech....when you run an organization that can choose to help, or not, a group who is stupid, hateful, evil and dangerous grow some BALLS and tell them to go F themselves. When you defend your support for their using university facilities as demonstrating "the importance of the principle of free expression" you either have no boys hanging down there or you sympathize with those in question!

What to do?

After some time off from plunking my thoughts on political topics in this blog, along with the new year and the obligatory resolutions I always say I'm not going to make, I'm trying to decide what to do! Getting all fired up about the obvious media bias, the whining dems, the politically correct strangle hold on the country, et al is just too exhausting. I'm thinking of mixing up my rants and throwing in a few raves....we could use more positive thinking. Sh*t, there I go again, now I have yet another more positive material. So let's drinking M-Th, don't eat 5k calories for lunch, work out more regularly (get my bench press back into the 400lbs range--that's right Mike!), be in a better mood after work (which really means be the happy joking tickling dad and husband my family loves), and post upbeat material to my blog. Great I now know what to do.....hmmm....its going to be hard to switch gears.....don't expect miracles from my next post, but it will be different.
