Howard "Yeeeaaahhh" Dean claims the librofascist will take back Texas.
"Spit.....Ding!" Not if I have anything to do with it! Since I live in Texas.
The "Truth" is very hard to dissect. The "Truth" today is hard to separate from a lie. Most commentators on the right will say that we've become morally bankrupt, but I disagree. We are not a morally bankrupt society, we have become amoral. Truth is no longer absolute; truth is now seen with viewer discretion. The "I AM" has been taken out of God, and the "I am" has been put in man. "And man saw his creation, and he saw that it was good.
With the left as its primary congregation and the left leaning media as its evangelist, Secular Humanism, could be the fastest growing religion. Why not? If you as an individual dictate truth, and never have any accountability, how could one ever be wrong? The sky can be orange, as long as I don't offend your right to think the sky is blue.
As a conservative, it's only natural to see Secular Humanism intoxicate the left, but in all honesty, it is infecting the right as well. You don't have to look very far to point out examples of Republican fear, synchronism in the church, and all out pandering to those who might disagree. People say conservatives are intolerant. Being a conservative these days is all about tolerance--It's about how much you can tolerate before you compromise.
With the myth that truth is always in the middle, fair and balanced, political correctness has become the fulcrum to the balance and the scales. Political correctness is self serving though, when it is administered. It is only as good or fair as the person applying it is, and since there no accountability to an absolute truth, then the person gets to pick what is right or wrong.
Tolerance is not intolerant. Secular Humanism, the religion of most of the left, is intolerant of the "Truth."
Ahmadinejad Is Da Bomb!
Once again, we get a clear reminder as to why the Unitied Nations dumb. It's a clear reminder that the world does't have a clue when they place President Tom as an equal to President Bush.(In many cases, President Tom is place on a higher moral ground than Bush) The press, who views George W. Bush's terrorism as self evident, recounted all his words, yet Ahmadinejad's words are not reflected on other than the internet and some talk radio.
Here is what President Tom received a standing ovation for:
Whether we like it or not, justice, peace and virtue will sooner or later prevail in the world, with the will of the almighty God. It is imperative and also desirable that we, too, contribute to the promotion of justice and virtue.
The almighty and merciful God, who is the creator of the universe, is also its lord and ruler. Justice is his command. He commands his creatures to support one another in good, virtue, and piety, and not in decadence and corruption.
He commands his creatures to enjoin one another to righteousness and virtue, and not to sin and transgression. All divine prophets, from the prophet Adam, peace be upon him, to the prophet Moses, to the prophet Jesus Christ, to the prophet Mohammad, have all called humanity to monotheism, justice, brotherhood, love and compassion.
Is it not possible to build a better world based on monotheism, justice, love and respect for the rights of human beings and thereby transform animosities into friendship?
I emphatically declare that today's world, more than ever before, longs for just and righteous people, with love for all humanity, and, above all, longs for the perfect righteous human being and the real savior who has been promised to all peoples and who will establish justice, peace and brotherhood on the planet.
Oh, almighty God, all men and women are your creatures and you have ordained their guidance and salvation. Bestow upon humanity that thirst for justice, the perfect human being promised to all by you, and makers among his followers and among those who strive for his return and his cause.
Let's say GWB addressed the U.N. and prayed for the hastening of Christ's return. Most of our own country would be ready to behead him.
Just in case there is any doubt that Ahmadinejad is not seeking nuclear technology for preaceful reasons.
This same Iranian President spoke in front of the United Nations previously on September 17, 2005:
Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad says that when he delivered his speech at the UN General Assembly in September, he felt there was a light around him and that the attention of the world leaders in the audience was unblinkingly focused upon him. The claim has caused a stir in Iran, as a transcript and video recording of Ahmadinejad's comments have been published on an Iranian website, baztab.com. There are also reports that a CD showing Ahmadinejad making the comments also has been widely distributed in Iran. Is the Iranian president claiming to be divinely inspired?
Prague, 29 November 2005:
Ahmadinejad said that someone present at the UN told him that a light surrounded him while he was delivering his speech to the General Assembly. The Iranian president added that he also sensed it.
"He said when you began with the words 'in the name of God,' I saw that you became surrounded by a light until the end [of the speech]," Ahmadinejad appears to say in the video. "I felt it myself, too. I felt that all of a sudden the atmosphere changed there, and for 27-28 minutes all the leaders did not blink."
Ahmadinejad adds that he is not exaggerating.
"I am not exaggerating when I say they did not blink; it's not an exaggeration, because I was looking," he says. "They were astonished as if a hand held them there and made them sit. It had opened their eyes and ears for the message of the Islamic Republic."
During this same speech, Ahmadinejad called for the near-term reappearance of the 12th Imam, who he feels will redeem the world through an apocalypse he feels his sect has the right and responsibility to create. As I noted in August, the mullahcracy that runs Iran belongs to the apocalyptic Hojjatieh sect, a branch of Shia Islam so radical it was banned in 1983 by Ayatollah Khomeini. Their views are, to put it mildly, are startling:
...rooted in the Shiite ideology of martyrdom and violence, the Hojjatieh sect adds messianic and apocalyptic elements to an already volatile theology. They believe that chaos and bloodshed must precede the return of the 12th Imam, called the Mahdi. But unlike the biblical apocalypse, where the return of Jesus is preceded by waves of divinely decreed natural disasters, the summoning of the Mahdi through chaos and violence is wholly in the realm of human action. The Hojjatieh faith puts inordinate stress on the human ability to direct divinely appointed events. By creating the apocalyptic chaos, the Hojjatiehs believe it is entirely in the power of believers to affect the Mahdi’s reappearance, the institution of Islamic government worldwide, and the destruction of all competing faiths.
I guess it is clear that George W. Bush is the dangerous one.
At least Bill Clinton is good for comic relief. In defending his actions regarding Osama, the former president consistently reiterated how hard he tried to get capture him. I don't blame one person for 9/11. To do so would be obtuse considering that the problem has been one in the making for the past thirty years or so.
That doesn't let Mr. Clinton off the hook though--he shares in the blame and judging by the numerous outcries of how hard he "tried" it's perfectly clear that he knows his guilt too.
Imagine George W. Bush commenting on the war in Iraq and saying, "Well, I really tried...really hard” The liberals would be ready with their cameras set up, swords in hand, ready to behead him. Or at least make a movie about him getting shot.
SO, for the purpose of clarification, and amidst a society that criticizes excellence and celebrates mediocrity, please refer to the following formula often:
"Almost" only counts when using hand grenades, carpet bombs, nukes and apparently commercial jetliners.
For how ever hard Clinton "tried," the terrorist were trying harder. They continue to do so. Take note any public leader!

It's getting to be about that time in the USA where the political machine does its thing and politicians squirm out from every greasy hole in the nation to run for a position they've supposedly been filling and are desperate to keep or are currently not a known political figure and are eager to steal somebody's spot. How are things looking in your area?|
Below the cut, I'm gonna rant a little. *cough*

Considering that there are really few places where people can speak out anymore without moderators flipping out, I've decided to pretty much drop all my rules and regulations altogether. Go Crazy folks. I welcome and encourage venting from both sides and look forward to the discussion that follows. :)|
Granted, I had already said this awhile back, I just wanted to make it clear that you can rant, rave, etc.

To this day, the UN has yet to admit that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization. Now, I could be biased against the organization that keeps China (RED-FUCKING-CHINA! Remember a certain scene with tanks and students? Or how about the butchers of Tibet?!) on its Human Rights Committee, but I feel compelled to wonder how much money/oil they continue to receive in order to blatantly ignore the fiercely antagonistic nations like say... SYRIA or... IRAN. Nevermind the dirty laundry that came out into the open once we got ahold of Saddam Hussein's ledgers and such.|
Aside from "Food for Oil" scandals and the most blind and self-defeating practices where every country appears to imitate the French, is there anything really coming out of the UN that is of use? They deployed a gaggle of UN troops into the one place where Israel was going to concentrate its fire and when some of them actually get hit, without ANY conceivable reason except bribery and inbreeding they accuse Israel of attacking UN troops on purpose.
|» Castro: Hearing the death Knell?|
In light of current events with the wars in the Middle East, a strange and intriguing event has presented itself. The impending possible demise of the Cuban Dictator has been a godsend to the formerly Cuban residents of Miami, FL and their ilk. People in general have been in high spirits at the prospect of a Communist-free Cuba, but at the moment the Dictator has placed his brother in charge and at last report he was "doing well" after surgery.|
Pundits are certain that if Castro dies that there's a strong likelihood that the small latin country will open itself up for Capitalism, but the wild card that everyone agrees upon is Fidel's brother and how he will command the country in his brother's stead.
So... who's heading to the bookie to place their bets? :P

Iraq, Vietnam, the MSM & Dan Rather
By Jack Kelly
Dan Rather's 44-year relationship with CBS News came to an unceremonious end this week. This should remind us that of the many differences between the Vietnam war and the war in Iraq, the three most important are talk radio, Fox News, and the Internet.
Mr. Rather must think his fate unfair. He was in effect fired when the documents on which he based an expose of President Bush's National Guard service were shown to be clumsy forgeries. But Walter Cronkite, who told a much bigger lie, is still an esteemed figure at CBS.
The turning point in Vietnam was the Tet Offensive of February, 1968. It was a crushing defeat for the Viet Cong.
"Our losses were staggering and a complete surprise," said North Vietnamese Army Col. Bui Tin in a 1995 interview. "Our forces in the South were nearly wiped out. It took until 1971 to re-establish our presence."
"The Tet Offensive proved catastrophic to our plans," said Truong Nhu Tang, minister of justice in the Viet Cong's provisional government, in a 1982 interview. "Our losses were so immense we were unable to replace them with new recruits."
The news media reported this overwhelming American victory as a catastrophic defeat.
Shaken by Tet, he planned to seek terms for a conditional surrender, the North Vietnamese commander, Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap, wrote in his memoirs. But our news media's complete misrepresentation of what had actually happened "convinced him America's resolve was weakening and complete victory was within Hanoi's grasp," Mr. de Borchgrave said.
What amazes me about this situation is that not only did Cronkite get away with it, but the media is being allowed to repeat the entire act. There is no reason other than the treason of the media that we had to pull out of Vietnam. If our media had been silenced North Vietnam would be a democracy and millions of South Vietnam civilians lives would have been saved.
Walter Cronkite and the MSM are DIRECTLY responsible for the loss of millions of civilian lives, and thousands of American soldiers who would have been saved had the North Vietnamese not been emboldened and encouraged by the Left wing MSM's propaganda against our own military. It seems the worst mistake our government has ever made in warfare is allowing the media on the battlefield.
I've said this time and time again. The media should be prosecuted for treason for the Vietnam War, and every major battle that they have reported falsely on since that war, and permanently REMOVED from the battle field. If you can't report accurately DON'T REPORT AT ALL! Being on the battle field and being that source of information to the American people is a PRIVELEGE, and NOT a right. The left wing MSM should have that privilege cut off ... permanently.
