WTF?

Thankgiving Snow.jpg

I woke up this morning to the sound of $30 bucks going out the window. You know what that sounds like? Like a pick-up truck with a plow attached to the front weaving in and out of my driveway.

The last time it snowed on Thanksgiving was the winter of 1995-96. And that winter was a BITCH. They're saying that this year will be just as bad.

Super.

The Elephant In The Room

Or "Being Surrounded By Donkeys On Thanksgiving".

Many of us who are Conservatives and/or Republicans and live in "Blue States" will be going to visit relatives tomorrow. And many of us will come into contact with relatives who are Liberals and/or Democrats openly hostile to President Bush, the war or the GOP in general.

Fatal Consequences...

...of not being the Master Of Your Domain.

Frankly, up until the teeth falling out part I find these maladies to be more akin to what happens if you don't do it. I also find it amusing that the original text is in French.

I mean how can any French guy look at this woman on the TV everyday and control himself?

Today In History

The last great Democrat, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was cut down in his prime. And at a time when his country needed him the most.

jfk.jpg
John F. Kennedy
1917 - 1963

Not long after this tragedy, the Democrat Party began a long slide into Left-wing kookery. In the forty-two years that followed, only two men from that party were elected President. And in both cases, they were Southerners pretending to be moderates. Well, you know what they say. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I think it highly unlikely that the third time is the charm. In 2008, especially within the context of the Global War On Terror, the American voter is probably going to express their feelings in the booth: Won't Get Fooled Again.

I was raised in a Democrat household and taught to believe that Republicans were the enemy. It took me a long time to get past that. These days when I see Democrat Senators taking the floor and denouncing the mission that our brave men and women overseas are sacrificing everything for, just to try and gain some political traction, I can see who the enemy really is.

Just read (and listen to) the words of JFK:

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty."
Words like Freedom and Liberty and the idea of America being a beacon to the oppressed peoples of the world were not politically incorrect back then.

What the F**K happened to the Democratic party that I once proudly belonged to? What the hell has become of the party of Kennedy, Truman and FDR? They have been taken over by people who belong to the a generation that followed Kennedy. By a bunch of self-centered, narcissistic, spoiled assholes who were given everything and have given back nothing. By a bunch of pricks who lived their lives focused on getting high and getting off with no sense of personal responsibility.

I don't mean to paint this whole generation with a broad stroke. There are plenty among them who served their country, who hold dearly the principles on which this country was founded and who raised their children to appreciate the value of the freedoms we all take so much for granted.

But while the men and women whose life experiences were formed by the era of WWII can be easily regarded as "the Greatest Generation", I dare say that many of their children have tainted their own age-cohorts as "the Worst Generation". These are the people that are trying to run our country into the ground because while they love the idea of their country, they hate it the way it is. They blame America for all the misfortunes in the world and believe that any attack we receive is one that we brought upon ourselves. Fortunately, there are enough of them who understand all too clearly the enemy we now face.

If John F. Kennedy were alive today, he would be even more ashamed of his pathetic little brother than he was before his assassination.

I know there are people out there who are still registered as Democrats, but who more and more find themselves disagreeing with their party. They hold on to the hope that they might one day reclaim control of a party that has gotten out of control. I truly believe they are fooling themselves.

Jack's words of so many years ago still ring true for many of us - Democrat, Republican and Independent:

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility--I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it--and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country.

But for the leadership of the Democrat party, those words are nothing more than a hollow ideal of an age long past. They live in their own alternative reality where the next election is more important than the safety and security of the American people. They disgust me.

Forty-two years ago, more than a President died. A political party contracted a terminal illness, and they are currently in the last stages of the disease. For the sake of the nation, the sooner that it takes the final exit the better.

How Could This Be?

Despite all the efforts of the Llamas, it seems I've all of a sudden achieved the ranking of#6 for a Google search of "Melissa Theuriau Naked".

And it looks like I can thank Steve-O for his comment on this thread. Now far be it from me to try any cheap tricks to boost my Google visibility. I mean it's not like I would go around putting "Melissa Theuriau nude" or "Melissa Theuriau hot" or even "Melissa Theuriau sexy" in a post just to try and garner Google hits. But hey, if I get them there's nothing I can do about it.

How Would This Be Possible?

Teenager tries to have sex with a mannequin. Unless department store dummies are designed to be more anatomically accessible these days, I'm wondering how this kid intended to actually "go all the way" here.

Security guard found Michael Plentyhorse, 18, sprawled with the dummy on the floor with his trousers and pants down.

Police spokesman Loren McManus said: "There was inappropriate activity between him and the mannequin."

"That's the only way I know how to put it."

I think maybe Mr. Plentyhorse (love that name, BTW) has seen this movie one too many times.

Keep the "Grey Eagle" Blogburst Going

Yesterday, I encouraged all readers to visit Grey Eagle's A Female Soldier 2 and leave a show of support in the comments section of her most recent post.

As of now, more than 200 of you have left kind words of encouragement and gratitude for the work they are doing in Iraq. If you haven't yet or are only just hearing about this now, I urge you to go there now and do so.

Jay Tea at Wizbang has a good summary of her situation and how we can help: "while we can't extract the venom, we sure can dilute the hell out of it!"

Chris Matthews...Useful Idiot

The host of MSNBC's "Hardball" goes to the University of Toronto and makes this asinine statement about the GWOT:

"If we stop trying to figure out the other side, we've given up. The person on the other side is not evil -- they just have a different perspective."
Sure, if we can just figure out why these people want to wantonly murder innocent people, maybe we can talk them out of it.

What a complete ass-hat. And we expect this naive schmuck to give us an accurate picture of what's going on every evening?

UPDATE: Despite Matthews protestations, Ace shows that he said as much once before, about a year ago.

Again, ASS-HAT!

Freedom Is What We Are Fighting For

Mr. Right brought my attention to a situation at a milblog called Grey Eagle, written by a female soldier serving in Iraq. Her site recently underwent an attack of rude and disgusting comments by a bunch of moonbat freaks as well as a malicious hacking that disabled her ability to post any encouraging messages to the troops.

Her retort to these scumbags is an important statement and should be read. Go visit here and show your support.

Giants v. Eagles

UPDATE:
GIANTS WIN BABY!! 27-17. I'll give Philly credit, they haven't given up on their season, even if everyone else has. I had to listen to most of this on the radio while I was getting rid of as many leaves as possible before the snow comes.

Phew. That's a relief. Now, tied with the 'Boys for first. December 4th is looming large on the schedule!

giants v. eagles.jpg

HUGE freaking game.

Now the Eagles are on the ropes. They lose their best receiver in a PR disaster (never should have signed the a-hole in the first place). Their star QB is down and out - maybe for the whole season. The former division title holder is now in a 4-5 hole with pretty much no one giving them a prayer.

But nothing is more dangerous than a wouned animal. And no team can be taken lightly - as the Giants painfully learned last week against the Vikes. Throw into the mix that one team or the other traditionally sweeps the series every season and you've got...pressure!

Hopefully, NY will bounce back from last week and destroy Philly. Kick them when their down. And if they stir a little, kick 'em again. Harder. It's no secret that I hate the Eagles with the white-hot intensity of a thousand burning suns. I want not just a W. I want a slaughter.

And if I can't get a slaughter...I'll take a W anyway.

"Peace Mom" Writes A Book

cindy sheehan media whore.jpg

Now you just knew this was going to happen.

Now those journal entries are in her book, "Not One More Mother's Child," to be released Wednesday. The paperback also contains some of her speeches to peace groups earlier this year, letters to politicians and writings since leaving Crawford.

"I never wrote anything more than a note to excuse my kids from school before Casey was killed, so to see something I wrote in print with my name on it is amazing," Sheehan told The Associated Press by phone from her home in Berkeley, Calif.

Sheehan gained national attention during her 26-day vigil on a Texas roadside near President Bush's ranch in August. She refused to move until the president met with her or ended his vacation. That moved Arnie Kotler, the founder of a Hawaii publishing company who saw news coverage and read Sheehan's Internet blog entries from the protest.

"I thought, 'This is already a book. This is incredible,'" said Kotler of Koa Books, which printed about 20,000 copies. "We got it done as quickly as we could, and the deepest reason is to stop the war."

Um, Koa Books? Not Random House? Not even Michael Moore's publisher Simon & Schuster? Some dude in Hawaii?

Hoo-kay.

403 To 3

Well, it looks like Democrats didn't have the grapes to walk the walk. They love to talk the talk though, don't they? Both sides knew this proposal wouldn't pass. So if you're a Democrat and you've been humping the "withdraw the troops now" meme, why not put your money where your mouth is?

Hugh Hewitt nails it this morning:

Many Democrats were emotionally undon by the exercise of having to confront their own rhetoric, and the anti-war left must be stunned this morning: Only three votes? All that work? All those marches? All those posts at the fever swamp bulletin board? For three votes?
Heh, those moonbats over at DU are pissed beyond belief. This was exactly the kind of proposal they were hoping their elected officials would vote for to "send a message". Well, the message was sent alright - to them. Only three members of the House are willing to be identified with the French wing of Democrat party.

The RCP blog congratulates those three today:

Wanting to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq doesn't make you a coward. What does make you a coward is when you truly believe we should get our troops out of Iraq immediately, you have a chance to vote for doing exactly that, and you choose not to because you fear the political consequences of being on record revealing your position to the public. This was not a vote on some obscure provision of the budget, it was the most supremely important subject on which members of Congress have the privilege and duty to vote.

So hats off to Cynthia A. McKinney of Georgia, Robert Wexler of Florida and Jose E. Serrano of New York for having the courage to vote what they really believe. And shame on those who didn't.

Truth be told, I was really hoping for more "yes" votes from Democrats. So I encourage their base to roll up their sleeves and ratchet up the pressure on their elected officials. More please...with feeling!
