PersistencE Open TrackBack Weekend

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

As all my close friends and loved ones know, “persistence” is my utmost favorite quality in a person.

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t.
Henry Ward Beecher

Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”


People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them.

G.B. Shaw

There is no telling how many miles you will have to run while chasing a dream.

Is there anything in Life, sweet friends,that you remained persistent enough to overcome, win, or hold on to?

Buckley on TorturE

Thursday, September 28th, 2006

muzlims1d.jpg

My money quote of the Day:

“When confronted with the assertion that the Soviet Union and the United States were moral equivalents, William F. Buckley responded that if one man pushes an old lady into an oncoming bus and another man pushes an old lady out of the way of a bus, we should not denounce them both as men who push old ladies around.

In other words, “context matters.”

When push comes to torture continues..

…many decent Americans understand that abuse intended to foil a murder plot is not the same as torturing political dissidents, religious minorities and other prisoners of conscience.”

Oh yea, my heart breaks for the bombers of my World Trade Center.

They are subjected to..
Invasion of Space by a “female.” *gasp*

Never heard of it?..Ah, it’s a drill to make the terrrorist especially “agitated” by the close physical presence of a woman. Ouch! girlart.gif

The Rock n Roll torture.
Interrogators rouse the terrorist by dripping water on his head or playing Christina Aguilera music. Oh my. Too bad it isn’t Barry Manilow. boy009.gif

How about the Muscular Strategies.
The terrorist may have to stand for prolonged periods, (kinda like waitin at a bus stop only a tad longer…), or he may be isolated for as long as 30 days. boy.gif

Torture.
No one likes to think of it let alone admit that it is a reality.
And yes, perhaps we can paint a grim picture of detainee treatment at Guantánamo. What if there really was mounting evidence of severe mistreatment of detainees?

So what.
These tactics, my friends are utilized for the sole purpose of producing intelligence of a threat neutralization nature.

Muzlim terrorists are fighting with asymmetrical warfare.

They know they are the weaker so they attempt to surprise and disorient their opponent.

In order to restore symmetry to the battle, we need to develop tactics of our own and, yes perhaps even abandon certain principles and ethical values for higher ones..Saving innocent lives.

Do some abuse power?
Of course they do. Regrettable incidents will always occur when fallible human beings are involved.
But we do not celebrate these abuses.

We accept them as part of human nature, try our damnest to prevent them and take responsibility for them.

Don’t forget for one minute my sweet friends that if we wanted to torture, we wouldn’t be subject to the laws of the Geneva Convention.
These monsters, I mean, cough cough, detainees, are NOT lawful combatants.

As painful as it may be to face, there may be times (very extenuating times) that in order to save the very principles that we hold so dearly….. we may just have to sacrifice them.

If somone knew where a bomb was hidden that was due to detonate and kill your entire family, guess what Libs, you might just throw a punch or two.

“Australian Prime Minister John Howard said Tuesday that Ar-ab nations must recognize Israel’s right to exist for there to be peace in the Middle East

Australian PM: Arab countries must accept Israel’s right to exist

“There must be unconditional acceptance throughout the entire A-rab world, without exception, of Israel’s right to exist in peace and security behind recognized borders,” Howard told a security conference in Canberra.

“The entire A–rab world – including Sy-ria, Hez–bollah and Ha–mas and in addition Ir-an – must give up for ever the idea that the Israelis can be driven into the sea,” he said.”

australia-kangaroo.jpg

Australia’s lookin better by the minute.
Cheers Prime Minister John Howard!

He is drawing a line in the sand..Will anyone follow suit?

Some go so far as to claim that his utterances are empty and vacuous…But at least he is “uttering.”

Of course in A-rab terrorist dreamland, Israel is supposed to make binding “agreements” with them. cough cough..I have what appears to be an existential question then…How does a “non existant entity” (as they vehemently claim Israel is) make any kind of agreement whatsoever eh?

Australia experienced terror in the shape of two major bombings killing hundreds in Bali. The Bali bombings killed 202 people ,most of them young Australians, and injured more than 300.
Have you forgotten that Libs?

Yea yea and predictably the Libs in Aussieland will continue to gnash their teeth in frustration, just like they do everywhere on the map. peaceani8.gif

Wonder if any Aussies wish to weigh in on this one?

Stop The ACLU Blogburst

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

Crossposted from Stop The ACLU:

In case you haven’t heard, a group of dissenters from the ACLU are rebelling and calling for a change in the current leadership of the main organization. The summary of things this new group is fed up with is hypocrisy and the ACLU is full of it. Purging the ACLU of its hypocrisy is bound to be a goliath task.

Incremental Submission

“The violence by Mus–lims responding to comments by the pope fit a pattern that has been building and accelerating since 1989.

Six times since then Westerners have done or said something that has triggered death threats and violence in the Mus–lim world.

‘Isl–amic law rules you, too’

1989 – Salman Rushdie’s novel The Satanic Verses prompted Ay–atollah Kho–meini to issue a death edict against him and his publishers..

1997 – The US Supreme Court refused to remove a 1930s frieze showing Muh–ammad as lawgiver that decorates the main court chamber...leading to riots and injuries in India. brutus.gif

2002 – American Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell called Muh–ammad a “terrorist,” leading to church burnings and at least 10 deaths in India.

February 2006 – The Danish newspaper Jyl-lands-Pos-ten published 12 cartoons of Muh–ammad, spurring a Pale–stinian im-am in Copenhagen.. hundreds died, mostly in Nigeria. bombaaa.gif

September 2006 – Pope Benedict XVI quoted a Byzantine emperor’s views that what is new in Isl–am is “evil and inhuman,” prompting the firebombing of churches and the murder of several Christians.”

Lets be real y’all.
They do not want us to just respect their religion, they simply want us all to practice it.

Of course the Muzlims perenially reject the mirror of their behavior that they feel so comfortable threatening. They espouse spreading “Truth”, and then violently demonstrate against any else’s version of “Truth-telling.”

And the appeasing never ends.
The Deutsche Opera Berlin just decided to remove Mozart’s “Idomeneo” from it’s play-bill because of a scene which “may” considered offensive to Muzlims. Hmmm. Wonder why they would do that?

Didn’t want to literally see “heads roll” maybe? deadgrimreaper.gif

And of course in all ahem..”fairness”…….
Did y’all know that the Saudi government bans Bibles, crosses and Stars of David?

We know one thing..Muzlims around the world routinely publish deplorable, vile cartoons of Jews and Americans.

But, but, but…
We must be tolerant of their intolerance. Got it?

Muzlim: Thy name is hypocrite.

The blame, my sweet friends should not be shouldered solely by the Muzlims…The real blame my friends is on those who acquiesce to unending Muzlim “sensitivities” for fear of their violent reprisal.

Enough is quite enough. or is it?

HoneY for TerroristS

Wednesday, September 27th, 2006

muzlimsmall.jpg

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Mus–lim detainees at Guantanamo Bay entered Ram–adan with traditional sweets, dates and honey……..Terrorists must have their honey
Nearly all the alleged al-Qa–ida and Tali–ban members held at the detention center in Cuba are observing Ram–adan, officials said Tuesday. Meals are offered before dawn and after sunset to accommodate their fasting during daylight hours.

Would it be stating the bleeding obvious that the high-minded, self appointed critics who complain about methods of torture are dead wrong.

Of course we don’t get the valuable intelligence we need, which will ultimately save innocent American lives.

When the Libs have their way, terrorists are treated better than you are at your current place of employment.

Detainees are entitled to a full eight hours sleep.
And get this, they can’t even be woken up for interrogations. sleephammock.gif

They receive three meals a day. foodk3.gif

They get time to ahem “pray” without interruption mind you.

They are “entitled” to a at least two hours of outdoor recreation per day. Play time! Let’s play kick the bomb. Hide the bomb and go seek? Red light, green light, 1,2,3 Americans dead..whoopie!

bombani1.gif

Not to mention the approximately 1,000 American lawyers representing 440 prisoners, who just so happen to work on a pro bono basis..after all, it isn’t every day you get to defend someone who helped blow up the World Trade Center. The honor.

Of course injured inmates receive medical treatment and the Lamestream Media casually forgets to note that the doctors have to wear body armor just to treat their patients to avoid being slashed. Charming.

And guess who foots the bill for the terrorists’ dental care or new eyeglasses so they can better read their holy books on how to destroy us…We do. The American taxpayer.

These are captured enemy combatants.

Trouble is part of your life, and if you don’t share it, you don’t give the person who loves you enough chance to love you enough.
Dinah Shore

What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now.

If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?

Indonesian Catholics put to death by firing squad amid doubts of guilt

More Evil from Radical Christians..er I mean Muz-lims

“PALU, Indonesia (BP)–Three Catholics accused of masterminding a 2000 riot between Mus–lims and Christians in Indonesia were executed by firing squad at an undisclosed location …

Government sources said Fabn-ianus Tibo, Dom-inggus da Sil-va and Mari-nus Ri-wu had admitted their roles in religious violence, but doubt has surfaced in both Christian and Musl–im circles about their guilt….

In addition to claiming that Ti-bo, da Sil-va and Ri-wu did not organize the violence against Mus–lims, advocates for the men protested the fact that few Mus–lims were charged with any offenses during the fighting that took place between the two groups from ’98-’02.

More than 10,000 Christians in Indonesia died at the hands of Mus–lims during the conflict, according to International Christian Concern, a Christian human rights organization based in Washington, D.C.”

Right Rosie, the imminent threat is clearly “radical Christianity”.

F.Y.I.: Indonesia is the largest Muzzlim country in the world.

Christians belong to the poorest strata of society or to marginal ethnic groups.

The authorities have done virtually nothing while Christians have been routinely killed. Over 1,000 churches and 80,000 Christian homes were burned. Targeted killings of Christians in the area have continued.

In 2005, three Christian school girls were beheaded as they walked to school. Their heads were then placed on a church doorstep …to “make a point.”

indonesia-church-burn-muzlims.jpg

If anyone has difficulty discerning the difference between Christianity and Izzzlam. Pull up a stool.

Radical Izlam is a cult which glorifies violence and death. Yea. I said glorifies…as in………….Amputations, bombing, crucifixion, displacement, flogging, kidnapping, murder, mutilation, prison, rape, slavery, and torture. facewwk41.gif

It stands in opposition to liberal democracy and rights toward women.

It is rabidly xenophobic and anti-Semitic.

It has no respect for “the state” but rather the idea of the “caliphate” governed by their one and ONLY faith.

It is emphatically clerical and theocratic.

Yea, get out yer thesaurus Rosie. rosie-o-donnel1.jpg

And spare me the rubbish bout the cough cough.. “Moderate” Muzzzlims.

They are akin to a child’s imaginary friend.
Everyone buzzes about them. Everyone alludes to “them.” But, guess what?… NO ONE has actually ever seen one.
fireworkaniq1.gif

And now Radical Muzlims, courtesy of the C-A-I-R bears, don’t allow us to call them “Izlamo-facists” yet they have no qualms about equating America, President Bush or the entire State if Israel with the Nazis.

Or all Hell will break loose.

Hmmmmmm.

Christian blood is dripping in the streets of Indonesia.
But, who cares, right Rosie?

A Nigerian man accused of killing his brother denied murdering him – claiming he only killed a goat.
as reported by : bangshowbiz.biz

The man, who is currently on trial, told police he slaughtered a goat which he claims mysteriously metamorphosed into his brother.

Police Commissioner … “He said that the goats were on his farm and he tried to chase them away. When one wouldn’t move, he attacked it with an axe. He said it then turned into his brother.”

Murder suspects in Nigeria, where many people believe in black magic, sometimes claim spirits tricked them into killing.
The trial continues.

Yes. I am beginning the see the similarities. Human. Goat.

LipsticK and TerroristS

Monday, September 25th, 2006

Ladies, get ready for the $30.00 lipstick!
Liquid Ban Relaxed On Planes tells us…

The government is relaxing its ban against carrying liquids and gels onto airliners, instituted after a plot to bomb jets flying into the United States was foiled, an administration official said Monday.

A Homeland Security Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the announcement had not yet been made, said that most liquids and gels that air travelers purchase in secure areas of airports will now be allowed on planes.

That means that after passengers go through airport security checkpoints, they can purchase liquids at airport stores and take them onto their planes, said the official.

make-up22.jpg

Terrorist attacks from airplanes seem to be the threat that looms largest in Americans’ minds, does it not?

Perhaps if the TSA’s program for matching airplane passengers with the terrorist watch list, wasn’t comprimsed of poorly defined goals, and incoherent design criteria, it may actually serve a purpose.

The TSA has already spent close to 100 mil. on beefed bomb-detection technology. Do you feel any safer?

But as we all know they are hesitant to “offend” those on the selectee list containing those people whose boarding passes are marked and those who should undergo intensive extra screening of their person and carry-ons.

Change after change was requested of Homeland security to fund a bill which would allow the controversial Secure Flight program to use background checks and profiling to help determine if an airline passenger is a terrorist despite not being on a terror watch list.

Is someone missing the BIG picture here?
Richard Reid tried to hide a bomb in his shoes, so now we all have to take off our shoes?

Ooooh. Terrorists use cell phones…. so the government will either find ways to shut down the cell-phone network, or ban them all. phoneboy.gif

And yet, We still refuse to profile Muzlims who ARE the known terrorists.

In addition, we are still inept at intelligence and investigation.

We refuse to even identify the terrorists themselves. muzlim13.gif

We refuse to cut off their funding, or to even investigate organizations such as C-A-I-R who defend terrorists time and again.

Instead we listen to the Democraps and Libs drone endlessly on about the geopolitical consequences of our foreign policy and how it is what breeds terrorism.

And why not….after all it makes for great political grandstanding.

So, now we will purchase our “liquids” in the airport.

Pass the $50 make up kit.
