PINPOINT ACCURACY

Picked this link up via Cato the Youngest. I suggest everyone read it.
Here is a little excerpt:

    Meanwhile Hans Blix, as a Geneva inspector of the 1930s par excellence, could have easily assured the world that there was no evidence that the German battleship Bismarck was oversized or the Luftwaffe out of compliance. At the same time, the Vatican welcomed in the tinhorn Iraqi foreign minister Tariq Aziz, who won his chest medals and epaulettes in the early 1970s as a hack newspaper editor boasting from his office of the lynching of Jews in Baghdad. In between joint appearances with various Christian clergy, the chubby new Ribbentrop barked at a Rome news conference that he had not come to the Vatican to take any questions from an Israeli reporter. Fellow journalists booed — but nevertheless stayed glued to their seats to coax answers from a two-bit fascist soon to be in a cell at the Hague.

    In 1933 Oxford undergraduates, traumatized by a recent war, passed a resolution refusing "in any circumstances to fight for King and Country." Today there is once again dictatorship on the rise, but our pacifists, enervated by affluence rather than scarred by battle, choose street carnival over reasoned debate, and so march in our capitals proclaiming a new Axis of Evil — the democracies of America and Israel, the shared targets of fundamentalist suicide-murderers.

    Here at home in the United States we see the same 1930s antiwar coalitions of hardcore old leftists screaming about American corporatism and imperialism married with America First rightists. At peace marches swastikas appear painted over the Star of David. Meanwhile our "liberal" columnists defame Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, William Kristol, and the bogeymen known as "the neoconservatives." So the ancient prejudice has returned, now whispering that "they" are getting "us" into war to save "them."

    Western Europe has almost gone the way of Weimar. Amoral, disarmed, and socialist, it seeks ephemeral peace at all costs, never long-term security, much less justice. Furious that history has not ended in perpetual peace and leisure, it has woken up angry that Mr. Bush and Mr. Blair disturbed its fanciful slumber with chatter about germs and genocide.


His observations are right on, his language scathing.
As if we needed another indictment of the amoral, selfish Europeans...

THE RIGHTIES

Go here for a list of conservative entertainers.

I was surprised by some of the names on the list (Gene Simmons?!?).
ANYONE FAMILY WITH PMACHINES?

I signed up for my own domain name and am trying to load pmachines on my server to start my blog (the address will be the same, only without the .blogspot).

If anyone has any hints or tips, or ideas about another program that would be slightly easier (and free) to install, email me at smackcakes@yahoo.com.

Sorry for the sparse posting, but this is driving me crazy.
NO PITHY COMMENTS, JUST SHAKING MY HEAD

If the new resolution on Iraq passes, and France vetoes it, I have a feeling that this is not only going to be the end of the UN, but it will show the world that France is just as bad now as they were when they voluntarily rounded up Jews for the Nazis.

What selfish, spoiled, unfeeling international brats they are.
I don't know if I'm more sad or angry.
I just want to pick them up and shake them.
They just don't care that one of their allies is in real danger. To them, I suppose, Americans (and Jews) do not count as humans.

As for Germany, I don't think that it is any secret that Schroeder is a rabid anti-American, and barely worth mentioning.

Russia and China... I didn't really expect support from them. They are alway opposite the US and I don't believe we were depending on support from them anyway.
The other countries... They just follow in line behind what they believe the Europeans are going to do. Sheep mostly, poor, and unable to offer anything other than moral support if they chose. Many of them ruled by regimes no better than Iraq, so expecting help from that quarter is naive at best.

But France...
How quickly they forget. How sure they are in their arrogant superiority and moral equivocation.

I hope, that if God is up there, that he won't banish me to hell for wishing evil on the French.

NO, NO, REALLY, IT IS TOLERANT

Jihad, the Arab Conquests and the Position of Non-Muslim Subjects

    Christians are marginally better regarded than the Jews, but the Koran still accuses them of falsifying the scriptures.

    v.75:" They surely are infidels who say, "God is the third of three"; for there is but one God; and if they do not refrain from what they say, a severe punishment shall light on those who are unbelievers."

    They are also accused of worshipping Jesus as the son of God, and like the Jews, they have been led astray and must be brought back to the true religion, that is, Islam.

    According to the Koran, Jews have intense hatred of all true Muslims, and as a punishments for their sins, some of them had, in the past, been changed into apes and swine (Sura v.63), and others will have their hands tied to their necks and be cast into the Fire on Judgment day. The attitude enjoined upon the Muslims towards the Jews can only be described as anti-Semitic, and certainly was not conducive to a better understanding, tolerance or co- existence.

    v.51: Believers, do not take Jews or Christians as friends They are but one another's friends. If anyone of you takes them for his friends, then he is surely one of them. God will not guide evil-doers."

    v.56_64: O Believers, do not take as your friends the infidels or those who received the Scriptures before you [Jews and Christians] and who scoff and jest at your religion, but fear God if you are believers. Nor those who when you call them to prayer, make it an object of mirth and derision This is only because they are a people who do not understand. Say: "People of the Book: isn't it true that you hate us simply because we believe in God, and in what He has sent down to us, and in what He has revealed to others before; and because most of you are evil doers?" "Why don't their rabbis and doctors of lax forbid them from uttering sinful words and eating unlawful food? Evil indeed are their works. "The hand of God is chained up", claim the Jews. Their own hands shall be chained up -- and they shall be cursed for saying such a thing."

    Jews are often accused, in the Koran, of perverting the scriptures, and holding doctrines they never held:

    ix.29,30:"Declare war upon those to whom the Scriptures were revealed but believe neither in God nor the Last Day, and who do not forbid that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who refuse to acknowledge the true religion [Islam] until they pay the poll-tax without reservation and are totally subjugated. "The Jews claim that Ezra is a son of God, and the Christians say, "the Messiah is a son of God. "Those are their claims which do indeed resemble the sayings of the Infidels of Old. May God do battle with them! How they are deluded!"

    And they deserve fully any punishment they get:

    ii.61:"Wretchedness and baseness were stamped upon them [That is the Jews] and they drew on themselves the wrath of God. This was because they [the Jews] disbelieved the signs of God and slew the Prophets unjustly, and because they rebelled and transgressed."

    iv.160,161: Because of the wickedness of certain Jews, and because they turn many from the way of God, We have forbidden them good and wholesome foods which were formerly allowed them; and because they have taken to usury, though they were forbidden it; and have cheated others of their possessions, We have prepared a grievous punishment for the Infidels amongst them."

    Such are some of the sentiments expressed in the Koran, which remains for all Muslims, and not just" fundamentalists", the uncreated word of God Himself. It is valid for all times and places, its ideas are, according to all Muslims, absolutely true and beyond any criticism.

I WONDER IF BLOGGING COUNTS AS "ART"?

Don't be fooled by the leftist Utopianic view of life in Sweden.
Witness, gentle (not) reader:

    Much has also been made of late about Swedish socialism. Pundits on the right have culled selective economic data to suggest that the common Swede lives no better than, for example, the poorest sharecropper in Mississippi. Advocates on the left have held up Sweden as the anti-Soviet Union, a shining example of how a hybrid of economic socialism and political freedom can yield a domestic bliss. They point out that the Swedish assault on the America rock charts is, in fact, a direct result of Sweden's public support for the arts. In Sweden, it's been written, musicians can apply for aspiring-artist welfare from the federal government. Keep track of when and where you practice, how long the band's been together, fill out the appropriate forms, and a wannabe rock star can take in as much as $18,000 U.S. in public assistance.


I don't know about you, but blogging for 18 thou. a year would be pretty damn sweet!

    So what about that Swedish music invasion allegedly spurred on by rock star welfare? Well, it's probably telling that the program was phased out as part of finance minister Persson's mid-1990s cuts in social programs. If you give, say, five to eight years for a band to mature and catch on, you might make the case that the Swedish invasion is the product of ending rock star welfare, not institutionalizing it. And The Hives - easily Sweden's most successful band so far, and probably its most talented - were never on the public dole to begin with (bandleader Pelle Amlqvist told Rolling Stone, "We thought that was like working for The Man. Plus, we were crap at filling out all the forms.").

    Sixty years of Swedish socialism gave us ABBA and Ace of Base. Ten years of quasi-capitalism, and Sweden's holding the flag for the new garage revolution. That's as convincing a case for markets as I need.


Now, who's to blame for Sheryl Crow and Chrissie Hynde?



POLAR ICE CAPS, MY ASS

Just a little info. on the biggest scientific lie of the last century.

But, this would work quite well...

    After all useful information has been extracted from his brain, KSM should be informed that he will now be killed after his body is smeared with pig fat, that his dead body will be handled by women, and all other actions taken that prevent a Muslim from entering heaven upon death so that he dies believing he will never get the heavenly wine and virgins, but will burn in Hell instead. Upon his execution, there should be no physical remains. The body should be cremated and the ashes scattered to the winds.
    Then, the word can be spread. All members of al Qaeda must know that once captured, their terrorist brethren will betray their comrades and that their fate will be ashes and Hell. The only way to win the war against terrorism is to terrorize the terrorists into giving up their evil jihad.


Hell yeah!

LINE UP, YOU MORONS

I have to say, these anti-Americans ('cause I've come to realize that the whole anti-war thing is not about war, it's about hating George Bush--the President of the United States of America--and/or the American way of life ), are really just a bunch of sheep.
They don't have facts.
They don't have logic.
And they certainly don't know their UN Resolutions or what the hell "serious consequences" means.
They just follow each other in a circle, bleating the same worn-out tripe from the sixties.

HEY DUMBASS: GEORGE BUSH IS NOT ADOLF HITLER.
BUY A HISTORY BOOK, VISIT A HOLOCAUST MUSEUM OR ARLINGTON CEMETERY.
BETTER YET, GET A CLUE!

So many "intellectuals" (Gore Vidal will be on Alan Colmes' radio show to spread hate and lies against America), entertainers, musicians, and such have been and are jumping on this anti-American bandwagon.
That's the reason I think they are so good with the leftist, socio-fascist propoganda that they push and shove at us and the nation's children: Actors and writers lie for a living. They're good at it.

Frankly, they are starting to bore me.
They say the same crap over and over again. To be so "intellectual" and "entertaining", they make me feel like I'm reading, listening, and watching the same soured pablum each time.

...LITERACY IS NOT A REQUIREMENT... PART III

UN Resolution 1441.

UN Resolution 687.

United (in their hate of America) Nations: There is nothing to waffle about.

YOU WROTE IT.
YOU RATIFIED IT.
NOW ENFORCE IT, YOU LYING, MORALLY BANKRUPT, US BASHING, GANG OF THUGS.



Four thousand three-hundred days (give or take one or two) since UN Resolution 687.
What the fuck have we been waiting for?

FROGS SAY: "PAY UP, STUPID AMERICANS"

The UN (and the whining fucking French candy-asses) think that you're taxes are too low.
**sniff, sniff**
That's not fair!
What to do, what to do?
Why, we'll create a UN tax brigade to even things out among high and low tax countries.

    High-tax countries like France have long lamented their loss of human and financial resources to lower-taxed nations like the United States. An international tax agency would thus work to reduce such "tax competition" between nations.

    "There is a concern that through better cooperation, you would avoid a race to the bottom" of tax competition, said Hall. "It could be a much more fair way of doing taxes, and actually help avoid double taxation for some."


How much longer will we continue to be held hostage by the socialist taxmongers in the UN?



OMFG!! [:^o] RUKDING?

Please tell me that these little idiots are not the people who will be looking after me when I get old.

Wait... Didn't my Mom used to say that?

theantidrug.bong

I certainly hope that I haven't been the only person to scoff at the poorly thought out antidrug.com (no, I won't provide a link to such silliness) commercials that equate buying a joint with strapping on a belt of plastic explosives and blowing up a school bus.
Deroy Murdock has authored an interesting piece in National Review entitled, "Fight Bombs, Not Bongs".
Here's an excerpt:

    Drug warriors must recognize that some eleven million American adults enjoy getting high at least annually — to relax and endure these nerve-wracking times. Some brave this endless winter, the drooping Dow, the Columbia disaster, the Rhode Island nightclub inferno, and growing war jitters by sipping martinis. Others play Lotto or visit Vegas. Still more sleep around. In excess, these behaviors can ruin one's health, fortunes, or both. Yet only smoking grass yields jail time. This is silly, illogical, and wicked.
    --Full Article--


Yes, it is.
Like it or not, marijuana is a natural substance that has medicinal as well as recreational uses. To equate pot with heroin, crack cocaine, or methamphetamine is scare-tactic reactionism designed to alarm naive parents and children.
I don't advocate drug use any more than I do smoking or drinking alcohol.
But:

    Adults who use drug paraphernalia while handling automobiles or wrecking balls deserve punishment. Minors should steer clear of the stuff until adulthood. That aside, mood enhancement should be none of government's business.


Thank you Mr. Murdock. What you do with your money, and your own time is your business. If you want to smoke a joint and veg in front of the tube, that's none of my, or John Ashcroft's business.
You should be able to decide how you want to alter your mood.
Anyone with any brain cells left knows that they don't call it "dope" because it make you smart!
Just because Congressmen have three-martini-lunches, doesn't mean that drinking is good for you.
All persons over 4 years old know that smoking of any kind is bad for your health, and drinking can pickle your liver (I won't get into the social/family aspect of alcohol or alcoholism--those of you who grew up around an alcoholic parent/s know the painful reality of that).
So why is pot illegal, but alcohol not?
Wonder if it has anything to do with those aforementioned "three-martini-lunches"?

My family was destroyed by alcoholism and the abuse, neglect, and destructive behavior it incites.
I've never seen a pothead smack around the wife and kids, spend the grocery money on grass, or drive like a maniac. '
Heads are usually too busy cleaning out the snack cabinet and laughing at The Powerpuff Girls to do harm to others.
Bums in the gutter don't ask you for a quarter to buy rolling papers. They want a bottle of Thunderbird.
You don't hear news blurbs about the two stoned guys who got in a fight over a card game and shot each other, or, "Totally fried teens trash new nightclub!"


So, the next time you see one of those commercials with the two guys sitting in the restaurant, think about this:

The real anti-terror method is not throwing potheads in jail, it's growing your own.

Producing your own stash means you don't have to pay.
No money, no dealer.
No dealer, no "drug gangs".
No "drug gangs", no violence.
Get it?
Besides, Steven from the Dell commercials needs a new job.
I think he'd make a great farmer.




THE ONLY TRUE SADDAM SOUNDBYTE IN 12 YEARS

Although it is not what he intended, Saddam Hussein actually told the truth today:

    "Tyranny will be defeated," the Iraqi dictator declared. "Arrogance will be of no help to it."


Tyranny certainly will be defeated...
With or without the help of the UN.

THE SILENT MAJORITY

Thanks to The Blogs of War for this piece of not surprisingly under-reported good news.

Now, just to get one in my town...
WOW, PRAISE FROM CAESAR

Just to set the record straight:
The incredible staff of writers at Silent Running are the authors of the very first blog I ever read. For them to actually take the time to put a few lines down for me, is...
Well...

I think Wayne and Garth said it best:



    WE'RE NOT WORTHY! WE'RE NOT WORTHY!


Yeah, that about covers it.
Murray: I know that a rhetorical question--by definition--doesn't require an answer, but I will post a piece on my beliefs, such as they are.

Thanks.

GET ANOTHER BUCKET TOM, WE NEED MORE WHITEWASH

The leftist press (hello! New York Times?) can keep glossing it over and sweeping it under the rug all they want, but the invasivness of Islamic thugs to Europe (and the US) is continually in the forefront of right-thinking persons.

You hear about how "Islam is the most tolerant religion for women," but I think someone forgot to tell the Muslim men.

This is the "freedom" and "tolerance" that women are granted under Islam:

IT'S ABOUT THE EURO STUPID

It's all an evil plot.
We're trying to steal all the oil so that the currency oil is sold in will be dollars, not Euros!

And George Bush helped plan 9.11 with the Israeli Mossad...

Or maybe it was the Jehovah's Witnesses that blue up the U.S.S Cole?

Now it's a global plot to hold the Euro down.

Wonder what incredibly tiny intellect came up with that one?
And fuckin' self-important Europeans have the gall to call Americans arrogant.

According to Musicians United To Win Without War, they have more influence and are more well liked across the world than George Bush.

APPARENTLY LITERACY ISN'T REQUIRED FOR A SEAT ON THE SECURITY COUNCIL, PART II
( Part I) contains the info. on UN 687

Full story here.

Here we go again. I can't believe that so many people in the UN can't have read their own resolutions:

    In two days, Iraq has destroyed 10 of the banned weapons, about a tenth of its stock of the missiles, which the United Nations has ordered eliminated. It has also destroyed two casting chambers used to make engines for the Al Fatah missile. Iraq destroyed those chambers in the 1990s, only to rebuild them.


Breech of UN Resolution 687.

    Iraq has agreed to destroy all unassembled pieces, software, launchers, fuel and equipment used to make the Al Samoud 2 in "a few days or a very short few weeks," according to Demetrius Perricos, the deputy of chief weapons inspector Hans Blix.


Supposed to have been done in 1991. UN 687

    Al-Saadi indicated it is not easy for Iraq to do that. He said Iraq won't let anyone see photographs or video images of the missile destruction -- despite the potential impact on world opinion -- because it would be too bitter for the Iraqi people to watch.

    "It is too harsh. It is unacceptable," he said somberly. "That's why we have released no pictures."


He has no pictures or video.
Wouldn't matter.
These were to be destroyed under international supervision. UN 687

    "UNMOVIC costs $80 million a year. A war would cost upwards of $80 billion -- plus bloodshed on both sides," he said. He pointed out that UNMOVIC is financed by Iraq's oil-for-food program and asked which of two possibilities made more sense:

    "Disarmament -- peaceful -- at no cost to the American taxpayer. A war -- $80 billion -- to achieve disarmament."


Oh, he's good.
Hey you Hollywood traitors! He's listening to you whine about money.
Hey left-wing democrats! He's listening to you complain.
Keep giving him what he wants.
Of course, never mention the hundreds of thousands and possibly millions of Americans that might be killed with smuggled nukes, bio. or chem. weapons.
Hey, Roseanne Cash, David Byrne, Lou Reed: has Musicians United to Win Without War figured what the cost would be if the US was forced to re-build a sickened, poisoned, or nuked city?
How about burying the dead?
How about medical treatment for the survivors?
Grief counseling?
No?

I guess that really doesn't matter does it.
I mean, we would probably deserve it, just like we deserved what happened on Sept. 11. I mean, we have the balls to put our country first... How dare we...
As long as its capitatlist pig Americans dying, it's okay.
Right?
We don't count as "humans" do we?

And by the way, Mr. Cosby, I know about that little contribution you handed out to the always ignorant Barbara Boxer.






HEAD MURDERING ASSHOLE CAPTURED



Hi, Mom. I'm a baby-killing, scum-sucking shit head!


    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks who may also have played a role in the murder of journalist Daniel Pearl, was believed to be in U.S. custody overseas Sunday, sources told Fox News.


One can only hope that the "believed" part of that statement means that he is being held in a foreign country where torture is used on a regular basis.
I would love to have about 1 hour alone with him, a cattle prod, some Astroglide, and 5 quarts of pigs blood.
On second thought, scratch the Astroglide...

Hey, Khalid: we're coming for your asshole buddies too.
Rot in hell you bastards.




WHY CAN'T THESE PLANES GO DOWN?

I would never believe that Saddam would use Western human shields as real human shields... would you?
Now the dumbasses are heading home, in part because even the eternally neutral Swedes' largest peace organization can see what's going on:

    He told Britain's Press Association news agency that Iraq limited the sites that human shields could visit. "Now we are being told we cannot go to certain sites, such as hospitals, so we are reassessing our strategy," he said.

    U.S. officials have said that it is a war crime to use civilians as human shields and that there's no way of guaranteeing their safety.

    On Friday, the head of Sweden's largest peace organization urged human shields to leave Iraq, saying they were being used for propaganda purposes by Saddam Hussein.

    "To go down to Iraq and live and act there on the regime's expense, then you're supporting a terrible dictator. I think that method is entirely wrong," Ermanno told Swedish Radio.


Now they have plane tickets home.
We were so close to getting rid of these morons...
Damn!

GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM...
