Nayh Nayh Nayh, Thhpthhhp!!!

I love it. The democrats couldn't be more furious. They can't get over the fact that Bush chose a solid conservative for the Supreme Court.

I took a few quotes from a WND article that sums up the democrats dissappointment:

"Rather than selecting a nominee for the good of the nation and the court, President Bush has picked a nominee whom he hopes will stop the massive hemorrhaging of support on his right wing. This is a nomination based on weakness, not strength." - Kennedy

"It is sad that the president felt he had to pick a nominee likely to divide America instead of choosing a nominee in the mold of Sandra Day O'Connor, who would unify us. This controversial nominee, who would make the court less diverse and far more conservative, will get very careful scrutiny from the Senate and from the American people." - Schumer

"The Senate needs to find out if the man replacing Miers is too radical for the American people," - Reid

What did they really expect? Bush realized that the majority was upset over the Miers nomination so the majority was appeased with his second nomination. Isn't that how it works? The majority picks the president and the president picks people that the majority will approve.

Now, we have to ask ourselves: Was the Miers nomination a litmus test? Did Bush do this to hoodwink the Dems into thinking that he tried? Was this his master plan overall?

Thank you President Bush. I am pleased with your decision. You've given me someone that I would like in the Supreme Court. Now, I'm excited to see the battle ensue prior to Alito taking a seat on the bench.

Taken from an infamous FW:FW:FW:FW:… you get the idea.

9 Things I Hate About Everyone

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.

3. When people say, "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say, "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their asses!

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.6. People who ask, "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8. When people say, "life is short". What the hell? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks, "Has the bus come yet?" If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?

I Found it Funny...

Not all of you will find this funny. It happens to be a video of 2 Chinese students lip-syncing to an American pop culture song. The underlying premise is what's really funny - the fascination with Western society. In this case, the ever-expired Backstreet Boys.

15 Minutes of Fame while Dancing on the Graves of 2000 Soldiers

It’s over Cindy. We gave you your fifteen minutes. I’m sick and tired of hearing you whine and whimper about your views in Iraq. The death toll in Iraq has reached 2000, apparently a landmark number, which deems the war to be fruitless.

I don’t know the statistics of US wars and I never knew that our success rate is gauged on how many patriotic men and women have to die before the war is wrong. I do believe that we have around 150,000 troops occupying Iraq and surrounding areas. If my college-level math taught me anything, 2000/150000 is around 1.3%. I think I’d play those odds. Actually, every time I drive on US 19 (one of the most deadly highways in the US) I have a better chance of dying. Put me on a bicycle in Florida and I double the odds of dying as opposed to a tour in Iraq.

Let’s think about it for a minute. WWII was undoubtedly one of the most gruesome, deadly wars of our time. What if FDR said, ‘Sorry Russia and Britain, we’ve lost 2000 men today so we need to pull out now. Good luck.’ Again, I don’t know the numbers and don’t have time to look but I’m pretty sure we lost 2000 within the first 24 hours of our involvement during WWII. Thank God the citizens of this great nation were patriotic at that time.

It’s just getting annoying. Other oppositionists are pointing out all of the flaws with the rebuilding of Iraq. Apparently they didn’t see the free elections occur, or the new Constitution forming. Let’s go on another flash back… Germany following WWII. We, and other respectable nations, occupied Germany for years following the war. As a matter of fact, I believe our occupation lasted decades long. This occupation helped support the rebuilding of Germany through elections and a Constitution leading Germany to becoming an economic superpower and ally.

You can’t rebuild a country in six months.

You can’t fight a war without casualties.

God Bless all of the men and women fighting overseas and defending this great nation.

God Bless the men and women who have died defending the rights of humans.

God Bless this great nation.

Article for Print in Tomorrow's Newspaper

You can kisssh my sore ass," shouts a protester from the Keys, "George Bush, we’re not leaving!"

Just recently, an anonymous White House insider reports that George Bush, President of the United States, is now controlling hurricane Wilma to destroy all hippies and gays on the southern tip of Florida. Yesterday, Bush was seen with a 9-volt remote control that is guiding the hurricane to collide with the Florida Keys. "He had this weird laugh while he stared at the hurricane {on the monitor} while holding the remote," stated the anonymous intern, "I really think he was enjoying this multi-billion dollar devastation." This same intern purportedly overheard a conversation between Bush, Rove, and Cheney talking about eliminating a vast source of liberals in Florida.

Later that week, another anonymous witness has seen Karl Rove unloading boxes labeled "Box 1, 2, 3, and 5" which are believed to be filled with C-4, a highly explosive material, near the 7-mile bridge. "Rove had this evil look on his face," says an anonymous source, "and I know that he is going to blow up the only evacuation route from Key West…. Too bad none of us have cars!"

Following both Rita and Katrina, hurricanes that devastated the poor, black coast of the Gulf, people are catching on to Bush’s involvement with these obviously, unnatural phenomenon. "Sheer evil genius, but all in a days work for President Bush," proclaims a native of the Keys. "We knew it was only a matter of time before Bush decided to wipe out this huge, democratic voting population."

This new hurricane-controlling machine was actually purchased by the Bush Administration for billions of barrels of oil; answering the week-old question of ‘Why are gas prices so high?’ It is also reported that Bush gave up all of his rations of Tamiflu to sweeten the deal.

"There is no doubt in my mind that this was on the Neo-Con agenda to destroy all the blacks, gays, and hippies," proclaimed the native, "Bush was probably planning this with Roberts and Miers for the last decade. What better way to win elections but by forcing the democrats to use dead people to vote!"

Now that the cat is out of the bag, Bush will probably evade all of the independent investigations by starting a war with Korea. We all know that Bush has ‘wagged the dog’ and will do it again to avoid any more controversy. Rely on us, the mainstream media, to give you fair, balanced coverage of this vast, right-wing conspiracy as it unfolds.

Darlene Superville should receive Nobel Peace Prize

Darlene Superville, AP writer, brings us the most up-to-date, informative articles that are worthy of many awards. Her most recent article "Karl Rove’s Garage Proves to be Typical" helps us understand what Rove’s garage is like.

Calling him the "architect" of Bush’s success, we now should wonder:

"But can Karl Rove organize his own garage? Can the master of Bush's political planning figure out where to put the ladders, paint cans and cardboard boxes? "
Probably my favorite line:

"Some cardboard file boxes stacked one on top of the other, labeled "Box 6," "Box 4" and what appears to be "Box 7." No sign of boxes 1, 2, 3 and 5."

Here Superville is questioning where the rest of the boxes are… maybe at Halliburton?

This is where the general public gets their information. Superville is one of the many ‘writers’ that claim to spread the truth. If this is the real caliber of the press, I blame it on us, the readers. This is the quality of our media outlets. And they wonder why we question their ability and their honesty. If I had a spoon nearby, I’d probably be shoving it in my temple to stop the swelling.

Where’s the Bacon, err I mean Proof?

I think enough is enough. People everywhere are weary of this nomination and now the White House is trying to re-launch Miss Harriet Miers. Hopefully, Bush will get the hint that we don’t want anymore backfiring. You heard it here first and others agree, Rush included. Other bloggers, Ken, Dad29, and Neo Con Blogger also agree that this nomination was not only a mistake, but an insult to us as well.

We voted Bush into the White House under the premise that he would represent our ideals, morals, and political goals. This nomination has yet to reflect any of those. Perhaps she is a conservative, constructionist but how is this proven? She has definitely not proved this from her past party contributions or her support for Gay/Lesbian rights.

My only hope was that this nomination was actually part of a bigger plan. Maybe Bush threw Miers up there to catch some heat while his real nominee is getting prepped for battle… most likely not. We’ll just have to hope that this nomination is in our best interest and if she does step down, hopefully Bush will get the hint for his next nominee. Rush put it best in his op-ed piece in the WSJ:

"We've witnessed too many occasions where Republican presidents have nominated the wrong candidates to the court, and we want more assurances this time--some proof."

My Words will only taint these Encapsulating Remarks

Donald Rumsfeld quotes from visit to MacDill AFB on October 12, 2005

"Well, you can tell those who ask such questions that you and your friends across the world are standing on the front lines to protect them and to safeguard their freedoms, as well as your own."

"And you can tell them something else: that America is not what's wrong with this world. What's wrong with this world are the terrorists, the 'beheaders,' the hostage-takers, the assassins -- the people our forces are fighting every day in a number of locations -- they're what's wrong with the world. And our country's finest men and women are out there meeting them every day."

"Your mission is to be on the offense; it's to go on the attack, and that's what our forces are doing: they're engaging the enemy where they live so that they do not attack us where we live."

"Every loss of life and every injury weighs on our hearts and on the hearts of America."

"In the past year, our country and other parts of the world have ... suffered a number of natural disasters that have affected millions of people in thousands of communities. These disasters have caused a great deal of harm and a lot of death and dislocation, but they've also shown the truly heartfelt compassion and professionalism of the men and women in the United States military."

Bravo you Money-Hungry Idiots!

It’s official: no more running at recess. Broward County Schools of Florida have officially banned running at their 137 schools. Signs are now posted at all locations prohibiting kids from running. The worst part is - this isn’t even half of it.

Swing sets, teeter totters, monkey bars, sandboxes, all gone. Hazards. Dangerous in too many ways to be fun. No more running for children – but what about the obesity issue?

"Since 1999, Broward County schools paid out about $561,000 to settle 189 claims for playground accidents, about 5 percent of the amount the district spent on all injury claims in that time. To keep those numbers low, Graziose said, he needs to keep thinking of ways to make playgrounds safe." - Sun Sentinel

While doing more research on the topic, I came upon a funny little picture that really encapsulated the school system and judicial activism. I don’t know much about this website, Common Good, but they sure have a sense of humor when it comes to politics.

Corrupt Cops in New Orleans? No!!!!!!

I can’t believe it! There are police officers in New Orleans that are corrupt! No! (Insert thick cynicism, facetiousness, or sarcasm). Well, at least we have evidence, pictures, and film; before this we only had rumors of theft, violence, and missing monies. The funny part is the lack of media coverage. When a democratic government has corrupt police, it really isn’t corruption because liberal media wants to wait and hear the story. No finger pointing yet.

People are actually stipulating that the police were under extreme pressure causing them to over react when an AARP receiver (64-yo) was drunk in public. 64 YEARS OLD!!! Betcha he was a real dangerous man. Probably tried to cough on them. They pummeled him like a rented mule! Then they went on to beating the cameraman who was filming the incident.

Quote from MyWay news:

"The confrontations come as the department - long plagued by allegations of brutality and corruption - struggles with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the resignation last month of Police Superintendent Eddie Compass."

There is no justification for this type of abuse. I understand that police officers are wary of their surroundings, especially while dealing with drunks, but this was clearly unacceptable. I believe that force must be used but the video clearly shows outright abuse. On the bright side, the race card has yet to be played (Wait for it... Wait for it).

FEMA: Far From Fixing Faux Pas’

Just recently, FEMA relieved some rescue workers of their duty when they were informed that the volunteers were armed. Phoenix had sent four police officers that were deputized as US Marshals to help protect fire fighters and other relief workers during the aftermath of Hurricanes Rita and Katrina. These police officers were removed from duty when FEMA informed them that regulations barred them from being armed according to Arizona Central.

Both the NRA and other similar groups are up in arms (no pun intended) over the matter. After days of looting and lawlessness, the fire fighters undoubtedly prefer protection. Due to this current idiocy on the part of FEMA, Phoenix is now considering a halt in their assistance.

The real reason I’m covering this is because reciprocity isn’t being considered. One of our local talk shows, The Schnitt Show, covered this issue with a caller. Reciprocity is an agreement of two or more states that their laws will hold true across borders. I reside in Florida where we have the right to carry and Louisiana agreed on the reciprocity of this law. With that said, perhaps I should go and protect the relief workers. I can carry a weapon in LA and FEMA couldn’t stop me. Kind of funny how a civilian can carry a gun while deputized US Marshals are relieved of their duty. In the words of Donald Trump: FEMA "You’re fired!"

Quick Link

Check out Sir Humphrey's article:

Interesting take on the AP photographers and their inherent slant to the opposition.

Don't Look at Me...

...I’m on the list. I encourage you all to sign the petition. I think this is extremely important and if we all agree, let’s do something about it. I stumbled on this site form World Net Daily and was impressed. We Need A Fence is an organization created specifically to the promotion of border security, something completely overlooked from this Administration. Now is the time to further our security by putting a stop to illegal immigrants. OTM (Other Than Mexicans) immigrants are on the rise and needs to be stopped:

"Other Than Mexican" illegal immigrants pose a national security risk to the U.S.
The serious national security threat posed by "Other Than Mexicans" is not widely understood. Approximately 100,000 illegal immigrants entering the United States from Mexico each year are not Mexicans. The Border Patrol refers to these persons as "OTM's" - "Other Than Mexicans"

Within the last year, over 450 OTM's have been apprehended illegally entering the United States from such officially-designated "special interest" countries as:

This cannot be ignored. We need to put an end to this. If you read the site the facts are scary:

Illegal immigration is expensive - forcing citizens' taxes higher

In California alone, the annual estimated cost burden of providing education, health care and incarceration for illegal immigrants is over $10 billion:

Education. Californians spend approximately $7.7 billion annually on education for illegal immigrant children. Nearly 15 percent of the K-12 public school students in California are children of illegal aliens.

Health care. Uncompensated medical outlays for health care provided to the state's illegal alien population amount to about $1.4 billion a year.

Incarceration. The cost of incarcerating illegal aliens in California's prisons and jails amounts to about $1.4 billion a year (not including related law enforcement and judicial expenditures or the monetary costs of the crimes that led to their incarceration).

See articles and supporting statistics

I implore everyone that visits my site to sign the petition and help us defend this great nation. Consider more than just the influx of illegal workers but now, the terrorists that are in our country. This neglect has gone on long enough, we must stop pretending that this isn’t a problem.

Please visit their site to learn more about this problem and solutions.

Decisions Cannot be Based on a Coin Toss

"President Bush has thrown the dice…"Ken Bingham

"If Harriet Miers is qualified to be on the Supreme Court, then why not Judge Judy?"Neo Con Blogger

"The Trust Bank is closed."Glenn Beck

"…one of which just happens to be female but otherwise not even close to qualified. "Dad29

"…unlikely to ease the concerns of those who were expecting Bush to fulfill his promise to name a justice in the mold of Clarence Thomas or Antonin Scalia."Joseph Farah

"…where she indicated her support for full civil rights for gays and lesbians and backed AIDS education programs for the city of Dallas..."Matt Drudge

I’m not the only one. Whew! After listening, reading, and contemplating, I’m no more satisfied with Bush’s pick. As a matter of fact, I’m even more worried. To make matters worse, I’m ignoring the MSM and going to blogs, radio, and newsworthy sources. Not one reference really supports Bush’s decision. That’s not promising. I think Bush really dropped the ball.

Glenn Beck put it best: "The Trust Bank is closed." He went on to talk about how he’s given all the trust he can in Bush - to the war, his spending, and his Homeland Security. As Beck spoke, I began agreeing more and more with him. Bush isn’t giving us full answers. Bush can only ask for so much trust. The pie is running out of pieces. By no means am I losing support of Bush. I have lost no faith. I just hope that Bush is hiding something. Something BIG.

Following Beck, Rush came on and calmed my nerves. He also agreed that he’s up in the air about the pick but kept reiterating the trust issue. Limbaugh made me realize a lot. I got to thinking of a time when I have lost trust in Bush? Never. Why would I trust him any less (besides his "crack-whore" spending habits)? Never. Limbaugh also made me consider this: Bush knows her, we don’t. No matter how inconspicuous she is, Bush has known her for quite some time.

She supports AIDS programs and is an advocate of gay and lesbian rights. Who else on the SC is similar…? Oh yeah, Ginsburg. That I won’t forget: the Christian president who nominates a lawyer that could further corrupt our society and children.

No Room for Mishaps

What is Bush doing? I understand that by nominating someone without a paper trail s/he would have an easier time getting through the nomination process however, this could be bad news. Is Bush doing the right thing? Granted, she’s worked for him forever but does he know her? Does he really know her objectives? Many critics are saying that the conservative groups won’t be happy with Bush’s pick and supposedly, this ‘pick’ was pre-approved by some democrats. Remember Reagan and O’Connor - it happened then and could happen now.

I have no problem with her not being a judge; Rehnquist wasn’t even a judge before being nominated. She seems to have a great amount of experience from being the president of her law firm to being the president of the Dallas Bar Association. These two positions alone justify her experience and makes her a quite credible, Supreme Court nominee. My concern is her persuasion. She has no court decisions to reflect on and we don’t know her political views either. Granted, that is supposed to be irrelevant but we don’t want another O’Connor. That’s the whole benefit of being president: when a judge needs to be nominated, that president gets to choose the predecessor.

Let’s just say I have a bad feeling about Miss Harriet Miers. Something smells. People aren’t going to be happy. Heads are going to roll. Maybe Bush has decided to ‘roll over’ considering his low ratings. Is Harriet Miers the best person for the job, or is it because of the necessary quota? Is there a hint of Affirmative Action here? If Bush drops the ball here, he’s going to hear about it. We’re supposed to trust the man we voted for, but recently, I’ve questioned some of his decisions. Even Roberts is purportedly questionable. I do trust Bush, I do trust our party, but now is not the time to make mistakes. We’ll find out soon enough.
