We Have A Cat

One of our daughters went and got a cat last week from her boyfriend's family. Danged if she didn't call it Detective Mittens. It is a pretty little thing, sorta calico and sorta whatever. She is very skittish and is just starting to allow me and my wife to get close. My daughter has been buying this cat all kinds of stuff to amuse it, or herself, I can't decide.

As for me, personally, I am not a real cat person. Sure, they're - cute and all that. And we do have problems with field mice getting into the house every now and then. As a matter of fact I just trapped one yesterday and the cat was useless. But a dog will earn its keep with fang and bark and I'd just as soon make her work for a living too. Then I remembered my laser pointer. She earns her keep now by making me laugh.

101st Combat Brigrade - Kunar Province

Since my in-laws passed, we have spend the last few Christmas Eves at my wife's cousin's house - Isabelle and her daughter Delores. Isabelle's husband, Vince, passed away about ten years ago; he and my FIL were first cousins. Vince and Isabelle immigrated from Monopoli, Italy, in the early fifties and moved to Syracuse where they could be with family. It was a big joke that Vince received a small monthly pension check from Italy for his service in the Italian Navy during WWII. Vince would shrug and grin. If the Italian Navy ever found out what he did (or didn't do), they would have shot him. Vince was a lover, not a fighter.

There is a family that Delores met while she was working as a representative for a large faucet manufacturer. For the past several years these wonderful people have also joined Isabelle and Delores for Christmas Eve and we have become friends with them. Last year their oldest son, Bill, was home from Iraq and he joined all of us in a great time of fellowship and food (Isabelle can cook like nobody's business). Like his dad, Bill is extremely tall; he has been in the Army for about four years now.

Bill is currently assigned to Alpha Company, 2-327th Infantry, 101st Combat Brigade. He is in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. At the bottom is a Global Post video that shows Bill's unit under attack. An IED explodes and the lead vehicle in a convoy is heavily damaged. There is an exchange of small arms fire. Several men are injured. By the grace of God no one lost their life.

This is NSFW due to graphic images and langauge.
You will see an American soldier get shot.
Allow me to prepare you.

There are three parts to this video. In the first segment, the IED has detonated and you are inside an armored vehicle during the small arms exchange. The soldier manning the grenade launcher is shot in the head. His helmet absorbs most of the round and he is knocked out of the weapon mount. He is concussed by the force of the hit but alive and bleeding slightly. His buddies tend to his wound.

In the second segment you are now outside the armored vehicle. You will first see a soldier wearing sunglasses and gesticulating - waving his arms while giving directions. This is Bill. Then you will see soldiers tending to the wounded who were in the lead convoy combat vehicle - heavily damaged and on fire from the IED. The driver was seriously injured.

In the third segment you will listen as one of the soldiers relives the incident with his buddies and the seriously wounded driver is evacuated by helicopter to a hospital.

This is the real deal. Our people are in constant danger. God bless and protect our soldiers.

Nancy Bird


H/T to Charlie the ChiTown Cop.

Thanks for giving me the bird Charlie!

Say what you like, but the Near and Middle East has seen conflict and conquest for five millennia. No where else in the world has seen this kind of activity for such a long period of time.

Go here for a truly interesting 90 second tour of the empires that flourished and died in the Mediterranean, Israel and parts east. Some will surprise you.

Mourning In America

There is a new TV ad making the rounds. Sponsored by Citizens for the Republic, this ad is a very well done piece attacking the Obama administration's policies.

We Luv The NJ Guv

Trenton, NJ ( -- After the New Jersey state Senate defeated an attempt to override the decision of Gov. Chris Christie to cut off state taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood abortion businesses, the first facility run by the national abortion giant is closing.

The Cherry Hill Courier Post newspaper says a Planned Parenthood facility located on Haddonfield Road and operated by Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey will close down.

PP-SNJ stands to lose as much as $160,000 in taxpayer funds because of Christie's decision and the upholding of his veto. With the closing of the Cherry Hill center, Planned Parenthood customers seeking abortions or other "services" must go to PP centers in Camden, Bellmawr, and Edgewater Park.

In NYS, inmates who received capital punishment sentences were housed at a single location, Ossining, AKA "Sing Sing", in Westchester County where the death sentence was carried out. If NYS built more correctional facilities that could carry out this function, the libs would be screaming bloody murder (mheh!). But for the self same libs, too many abortion clinics are not enough. If you want to murder your unborn child you should not have to be inconvenienced.

Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey president Lynn Brown told the newspaper, "We are in think mode and creative mode and we are doing all that we can to try and salvage to see as many people as we need to see."

This is a very revealing slip. She doesn't say that they want to help women who need a service. She wants "to see as many people as we need to see." To. Turn. A. Profit.

"We all know it's strictly ideological," Brown said of the funding cuts to the abortion business. "This is a very frustrating and perplexing time for us."

While the Cherry Hill center does not do abortions, it gives abortion referrals to Planned Parenthood offices in Hamilton Square, Princeton, and Trenton where abortions are done on women and unborn children.

Let's get the terminology straight.
You perform abortions on women, not unborn children - those you murder. Okay?

But kudos to Gov. Christie for taking steps to save children and taxpayer money. I trust he is just getting started.

The Democrats have designed a new logo for their website.

Polls reveal that the American public is abandoning the dems in favor of conservative candidates. We will see what happens this November.

Until then, I say let's make a logo for the kind of change we really want to see throughout America.

An Election To Remember

It is amazing how a self-stylied community organizer such as Obama failed to see the nation-wide community organizing that was going on right under his nose in the guise of the Tea Party. There are only two reasons for this: detachment and/or incompetence. I suspect a lot of both was at play.

The Dems are in full panic mode right now as they see the iceberg approaching. It wasn't so much that the ocean was free of obstructions such as this, minor ones are encountered all the time and are easily dismissed. It's just that this one is so big and was created so quickly outside the normal iceberg channels.

Iceberg specialists disregarded this one until it was too late. The Captain and his Lieutenants mocked any chance that this particular iceberg could damage such a great ship under his command. Ignoring all warnings, he steamed straight ahead.

Now the lifeboats are being readied, emergency rations distributed, flares are popping off, the crew is dogging the watertight doors and the Captain is on the lido deck with the band practicing "Nearer My God To Thee."

Even before Christine O’Donnell handily defeated Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) in an epic upset Tuesday night, the Tea Parties, all of them, had already won. No matter what happens in the midterm elections on Nov. 2, the Tea Party has moved the Democrats to the right and the Republicans even more so, and President Obama’s agenda is dead.

Anger from disaffected conservatives who sat quietly through eight years of the surplus-to-deficit presidency of George W. Bush bubbled up immediately after Obama took office. All it took was the unprecedented $787 billion stimulus package, and before Obama could mark his first 100 days in office, a movement was born. Some of the already angry yet newly active were libertarian supporters of Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), and almost all of them were fuming over the Troubled Asset Relief Program of 2008, the bipartisan bailout of Wall Street that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) voted for and that his running mate, then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), supported.

What debuted in nationwide protests on April 15, 2009, has taken less than 18 months to become the current driving force in American politics. The Tea Party insurgency will not only cost Democrats dozens of seats in Congress, and likely their majority — it will define the coming GOP presidential nominating process, determine the direction of the GOP for years to come and threaten any remaining plans Obama has for sweeping reforms of education, energy policy or our immigration system.

It will be every Democrat for himself.

Camp Intifada

From the Jerusalem Post:

Hamas summer camps continued to gain strength this past summer as about 100,000 children underwent radical anti-Israel indoctrination by the terror group which also attacked United Nations camps, its main competition, according to a report released on Tuesday by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.

According to the report, more than 100,000 children and teenagers participated in the Hamas camps which included paramilitary training and military parades. The Islamic Jihad terrorist organization also opened 51 different summer camps for over 10,000 children.

I was all set to do a song parody ala Alan Sherman that was initiated by Zip over to Weasel Zippers, but the more I thought about it, well, the sicker I got.

This is beyond parody. This is beyond the pale.

I believe with all my heart that this hatred is satanic.

Cockroaches treat their spawn better than this.

Perhaps more than anything else I have seen or read, this truly identifies the viciousness of Islam and the depths of depravity that Muslims tread willingly, passionately, even gleefully in pursuit of their false god.

That Tingly Feeling

I wrote this post over to GNN and liked it so much I decided to duplicate it here.

Although one of the Righteous Brothers, Bobby Hatfield, is no longer with us, MSNBC personality Chris Matthews has recently teamed up with Bill Medley to re-record their most famous song.

We've Lost That Tingly Feeling

We can tell you lie every time
You move your lips.
There's no truthfulness from your toes
To your fingertips.
We're trying hard not to show it, Barry
But Barry, Barry we know it!

We've lost that tingly feeling,
Oh, that tingly feeling.
We've lost that tingly feeling,
Now it's gone, gone, gone.

Now there's incompetence
In everything that you try to do.
Even Gibbs is so tired
Of your lies that he is coming unglued.
It makes us just feel like crying, Barry
'Cause Barry, the democrats are dying!

We've lost that tingly feeling,
Oh, that tingly feeling.
Bring back that tingly feeling,
But it's gone, gone, gone.

Barry, Barry, the media went down on their knees for you.
Just because you said that you could pull it through.
We had a cause
A cause, a cause that Soros could afford to pay.
So don't...don't...don't let it slip away!

Barry! Barry!
Barry! Barry!
We need it please!
Barry! Barry!

Bring back that tingly feeling.
Oh, that tingly feeling.
Bring back that tingly feeling
'Cause it's gone, gone, gone
And we can't go on.

Old Guys

Seniors. Old guys. Grey hairs. Codgers.
Whatever you call us, don't piss us off. Especially in Switzerland:

BIEL, Switzerland – Swiss police say they may have to change tactics in their hunt for a fugitive gunman who shot and seriously wounded one officer in the western city of Biel.

Police commander Francois Gaudy told reporters Friday that officers had tried to avoid bloodshed "but this doctrine has its limits."

Public anger in Switzerland is growing after police failed to apprehend 67-year-old Peter Hans Kneubuehl two days after he barricaded himself at home in a dispute over the house's sale.

After holing up in the house Wednesday, Kneubuehl opened fire at police early Thursday and then successfully fled even as police surrounded the house.

Some 100 police officers including SWAT teams, dog handlers and a helicopter equipped with heat-detecting cameras have been deployed to search for the man.

Never Forget

Pearl Harbor was never forgotten or forgiven by those who lived through WWII. German-Americans were not locked up in concentration camps like the Japanese. It was the nature of the attack. Germany declared war and then sunk our ships. Perhaps not by design, but Japan attacked American forces hours before declaring war. The outrage experienced by my parents' generation was such that I was brought up to distrust any Japanese because of Pearl Harbor and the perception that the "dirty Japs" were never to be trusted. I have since learned otherwise.

More people were killed on September 11, 2001, then were on December 7, 1941; sixty years earlier only 55 civilians lost their lives. Nine years ago nearly all deaths were civilian. Already the memory is fading, the outrage cooling, the resolve waning among many Americans.

I know there are honorable Muslims but I am unlikely to accept them on face value. I do not want them to be placed in concentration camps, but I do want all visas for Muslims wishing to come to the US to be canceled until this sorry, murderous mess is sorted out.

The Muslims have never apologized for their use of unarmed civilians to carry out their attacks. In fact, they still blame us. Muslims danced in the streets as nearly 3,000 Americans lost their lives.
I will never forget the sight of Palestinians celebrating and giving candy to their children as Americans burned in the fires of 9/11.

I will never forget the treachery of Islam and it's arrogant marginalization of everything outside its narrow purview that led to this attack.

And keep your damn, stinking mosque away from GZ.

UPDATE: I had forgotten this. The US - your tax dollars - funds the Palestinians to the tune of millions of dollars every year.

In 2008 - $415 million
In 2009 - $300 million
In 2010 - $400 million

Now I gotta go break something.

Let Him Be, Let Him Be

Mark D. Chapman 1981

The nutcase that murdered Beatle John Lennon has been denied parole for the sixth time on a 20 year to life bid. From Fox News:

John Lennon's killer has again been denied parole, nearly 30 years after gunning down the ex-Beatle outside the singer's New York City apartment building.

A parole board on Tuesday denied Mark David Chapman his freedom after an interview at Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

"A three member panel of the parole board interviewed Chapman this morning and we just got results back a little while ago," NY State Division of Parole spokesman Marc Violette told "He has been denied parole."

It was Chapman's sixth appearance before the parole board since becoming eligible for release in 2000. He's eligible again in 2012.

I dare say that Mr. Chapman should prepare himself for the only thing he'll be seeing outside of the Attica Correctional Facility: worms.

Stop The Insult

This must not be allowed.
You may contact PA Representative D. Metcalfe and respectfully (I know him, he's a righteous conservative) offer your opinion.

Flight 93 on 9/11: Ride to Stop the Crescent Mosque

Anyone live within driving distance of Somerset Pennsylvania? It's a beautiful place to visit and a group of motorcyclists from Indianapolis is already going.

Tom Burnett Senior and Alec Rawls are buying full page color ads in the Somerset Daily American for both Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th, so anyone who makes the trip will have a ready made protest sign waiting for them. Just buy a newspaper, tape the ad to a piece of cardboard, and let the massed national media know what side you are on.

That's right. With Laura Bush and Michelle Obama both attending, it's going to be a media circus, and a rare opportunity to force coverage of our issue. Just self-organize. Ad-holders will show a core of united opposition (and the media might even be forced to read our brief expose).

A PDF of the ad will be posted in another blogburst next week for anyone who wants to make signs ahead of time. There is also a set of small posters that were put together for a previous talk by Mr. Burnett. Just print with tiling to make the finished product as large or small as you want:
Board 1: The giant crescent

Board 2: It points to Mecca

Board 3: The gigantic Islamic sundial

Board 4: The 44 glass blocks

Petition to stop the Flight 93 memorial passes 10,000 signatures

Including a spate of dozen or so by 9/11 family members that feature some very strong comments. (See pages 198 and 199.)

Blogburst logo, petition

It Points to Mecca video nearing 20,000 hits

Thanks to big fat repostings by Creeping Sharia and Atlas Shrugs. Thank You!

Here are parts 2, 3 and 4 (also worthy):

If you haven't been to Shanksville before, there really is no lovelier place on earth than an open field in that sprawling Sherwood Forest that is Western Pennsylvania. Drink it in. There is something in the air at that patriots' grave.

When Immigration Reform Equals Surrender

Over to that great site - The American Thinker - Bob Weir has a post wherein he exclaims that he is sick and tired of the debate over immigration reform.

If I hear one more politician, news anchor, or talk show host say that the first thing we must do to stop illegal immigration is "secure the border," I think I'm going to be sick. Moreover, if I hear the term "comprehensive immigration reform" again, I'll probably begin to retch with disgust. The reason for my stomach-turning impulse comes from the frustration I feel when I hear meaningless phrases used repeatedly by those who have no plan for their implementation.

And I can agree with that. So much verbiage, so little action.

We hear about building a 2,000-mile fence as we watch videos of people climbing over portions of recently constructed fences. We hear about state and federal officers assigned to guard the border while acknowledging that we don't have enough manpower to become 24-hour sentinels, stretching across several states. When U.S. citizens take it upon themselves to organize and guard their borders, they're maligned as "vigilantes" and "hate-mongers" by those who know how to work the system to turn common sense on its head.

And again, I concur with Mr. Weir. Half measures only frustrate or infuriate us. It is like a surgeon stitching up only half a gaping wound. Groundskeepers mowing only half the baseball field. Carpenters building only half your house. Getting only half a slice of cheesecake.

Euphemisms are going to be the death of us because their usage tends to transmogrify reality. If you are a citizen of this country, the United States is your home! When someone breaks into your home, he should be referred to as a lawbreaker, not stroked and coddled like a lost pet that strayed into your yard. Would a burglar, walking along the street with your television on his shoulder, be called an undocumented shopper? By what stretch of the imagination is the word "illegal" a term that describes hatred for an ethnic group? Let's get real! The fact is that these are red herring tactics used by those trying to defend an indefensible position.

So far so good. Well said sir! Now let's finish the work. Let us hear what a retired NYPD Detective Sergeant has to say about the rampant criminal acts being perpetrated on our southernmost borders.

So is it a stretch to say that the INS should provide less stringent regulation and allow a greater number people to become citizens? If that amount were to be doubled or tripled, would we have the same problems at the border? The large numbers of people crossing the border illegally are doing so because there are plenty of U.S. employers willing to hire them.

Consequently, it would appear to be a no-brainer that we should expedite those citizenship papers, allow them to become taxpaying citizens, and lessen the burden on the Border Patrol and on those people, who sincerely want to enter legally,
contribute to this country and build a better life for their families.

Huh? Wha' happen? We went from over 12 million criminals breaking our laws by flooding willy nilly over our borders (Pssst! Bob! Remember the house analogy? Burglars? Lawbreakers? Huh?) and somehow wind up with processing paperwork a bit faster to solve the problem.

One of the benefits of sovereignty is having the authority to control your borders. Once you no longer control your borders can you say you are still a sovereign nation? It has become quite obvious that the citizens of a foreign nation now control our southernmost border. Under these or other circumstances this could be called an act of war - an invasion whereby the citizens of another country (armed and unarmed) stream across the border to do as they like. And many of them seem to prefer killing, raping, robbing and stealing. Gee, sounds like an invading army, doesn't it? It is not by accident that a third of all California state prison inmates are not citizens of the United States.

But, using the aforementioned solution, could it be that Mr. Weir is recommending that Poland should have granted citizenship to the 1.8 million Germans who illegally crossed the Polish border on September 1, 1939? Likewise the Belgians, the Dutch and the French follow suit?

Hey - problem solved! WWII averted! Peace in our time!

Bob, you're a genius.

Wake Up America!

I was over to MAinfo and read her take of a February 19, 2010, Washington Times article on how American tolerance of Islamic excesses will eventually lead to tragedy. I just had to go somewhere with it.

Panel of former Muslims says U.S. needs to "wake up"; over tolerance could hurt USA

Apostasy killing of former Muslims could become widespread in the United States if the U.S. government and Americans don't "wake up," a panel of three former Muslims said on Capitol Hill Thursday.

The talk, hosted by three members of the new civil rights organization Former Muslims United, marked the first public appearance as a self-proclaimed "apostate" of Iranian journalist Amil Imani, one of the founders of the group. Imani and the panel's two other speakers, authors Nonie Darwish and Wafa Sultan, told the audience that ingrained American religious and ethnic tolerance and myths about Islam are combining to gravely threaten the West.

"Shi'a radical Islam and Wahhabism is coming to this country," Imani said. "There are 6,000 mosques in the United States now. All the money [we] put into gasoline
comes back here and is used in the teaching of hate, violence, etc., etc." in American mosques, he said.

Sultan, who said she regularly gets death threats and emails from people saying they will cut off her fingers and rape her daughters because she left Islam, said it is merely a myth that Islamic terrorists misinterpret 'true' Islam for nefarious purposes.

Westerners "don't want to judge anybody based on their [religion]," Sultan said, "[But] Islam is not a religion. Islam is a very dangerous political ideology. ... There is no such thing as radical Islam and regular Islam or spiritual Islam. ...There is only one Islam."

Islam is like an huge homicidal circus directed by insane clowns. Sure, maybe one or two of the rides are fun but inside the Big Tent, your ass is the main attraction and the Ring Master is a meat grinder named Mohammad.

Once you buy a ticket to the Freak Show you can never leave.

[...] Western governments seem oblivious to the apathy of supposedly legitimate organizations about apostasy killings and the growing ubiquity of fatwa (death warrant) issuances, the panel said.

"A fatwa of death can be issued from any country," Darwish said, citing the 2008 handing down from the Middle East by Al Qaeda of a fatwa on Dutch parliament member Geert Wilders for an "insulting" film Wilders made about the Koran.

"Fatwas are issued on Arab T.V. on a regular basis. ... And these fatwas are following us right here in America. Why we are sleeping and not making a big deal about that is beyond me."

Darwish said if free reign for such practices continues, they "will change the culture in America. (They've) already changed the culture in Europe."

And if you piss someone off and end up on the "It's Your Fatwa, Allah Be Praised Hour" it's not like you can appeal to a Pope or a Council of Elders or Skippy the Grand High Exalted Clown Master. There are thousands and thousands of imams running around the Middle East and parts west punching out fatwas like candy machines at the State Fair rolling out pieces of taffy.
Kachunk. Infidel, we carve meatballs from you.
Kachunk. Infidel, we cut off your hands and feet.
Kachunk. Infidel, we kill you and your children.
Just try to pacify one of these maniacs who get gets his panties all in a wad because you may have once implied that their insane, pedophile prophet did not practice good oral hygiene.

Wake up America!

Mohammad never said that the meek will inherit the earth.
He never said to suffer the little children to come to him.
He never said to love your neighbor as yourself.
He never said that God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

What Mohammad did say was this:

Qur'an 9:5 - When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.
Qur'an 22:19 - Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.
Qur'an 9:37 - O Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Be harsh with them.
Qur'an 5:33 - Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam.
Qur'an 4:89 - But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them.

Are we listening?
When you tolerate anything you imply tacit approval.
Like a Victory Lap Mosque at Ground Zero.

Obama's Economic Policies

As I ponder the choices that will be available for my children and grandchildren after I journey to the Squad Car in the Sky, I wonder just how President Obama can justify his economic policies. Most Americans are not stupid despite the best efforts of the National Education Association and we can see that wasting taxpayer dollars to the tune of an annual trillion dollar plus deficit is not working. Why do the Dems and Obama maintain this facade? Why push the United States into a situation that changes our economic status into that of a third world shithole?

The answer is staring us right in the face.
Poverty breeds discontent.
Discontent breeds fanaticism.
Fanaticism fuels the Democrats.
Democrats support the socialist movers and shakers.
Socialist policies cause poverty and the establishment of an elitist oligarchy.

Fanatics are easy to direct. They have their own fragile, internal logic that incapable of withstanding outside influence and reason. That is why Islam kills converts to other religions.

Fanatics don't need no stinking badges.

Obama's policies will enable the US to join the ranks of some of the foulest shitholes on earth.
In many of those countries when things go wrong, they blame the Jews.
Here, they blame Bush.


Thursday, September 02, 2010


I missed it, but last January, CBS News took the unbelievable step (for a liberal news org) of soliciting input from its blog readers on how they rate President Obama.

With President Obama completing his first year in office this week, we are giving you the chance to weigh in on how you think he has done on the job.

Using the following categories of Economy, Foreign Policy, Healthcare, Afghanistan, Iraq, Threat of Terrorism, Energy/Environment, Social Issues, Bipartisanship and finally, Overall job approval, you can grade his performance from A to F.

This is the site. Go here to voice your opinion in this unscientific survey.
No registration is required.

His failing grades thus far:
The Economy, F ... 68%
Foreign Policy, F ... 60%
Health Care, F ... 79%
Afghanistan, F ... 32%
Threat of Terrorism, F ... 58%
Energy/Environment, F ... 55%
Social Issues, F ... 59%
Bipartisanship, F ... 78%
Overall Job as President, F ... 64%

His approval ratings (either a grade of A or B) range between 9% and 18% with six out of nine categories at 11% or so. We have no idea on the size of the population that has responded to this site but this survey has been running for over seven months now. Be aware that some of the liberal commentors on this site will make your eyes bleed. One of them is idiotic enough to insist that Republicans are flooding the site to make Obama look bad, as if liberals aren't doing the same trying to improve the ratings.

I have placed a new poll asking you for your opinion of Obama's overall job approval on my sidebar.
Hit it if you will.

And a H/T to Charlie the ChiTown Cop.
