I'm currently experiencing some blogger burnout in the shadow of the catastrophy of the Gulf Coast disaster that has left me feeling numb and insignificant.

I'm flying out to Appleton, Wisconsin tomorrow morning to stand along side my Cousin as he marries his beautiful Bride to be. Selfishly I will attempt to cleanse my head in the sweet Wisconsin air while spending some romantic personal time with my beautiful wife this weekend.

Nevertheless I feel arrogantly self-centered in participating in these celebrations as those in the Gulf Coast region have all that they've lived and worked for ripped from their grasp.

I can't bring myself to mention the rage I feel when I hear morons on the left taking the opportunity to blame the Bush Administration for this natural catastrophy. 'Oh, if only the Kyoto Treaty was signed...' or, 'Oh, we're so short on National Guard because of Bush's illegal war in Iraq'... IDIOTS!!!!!

*deep breath*

Anyway, all I feel I can do at this time is link to important sites that are aiding in the effort to rescue and support our citizens in the deepest time of need. I'm sure that there are many more than I provide and better resources to find links but this is all I can think of to do at this time. Please, if you are reading this and know of any, leave the links in my comment section if you don't mind.

The Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge is on the frontlines doing all they can to aid in the effort to relieve the suffering of its community. Also Operation: Share Your Home. (Thanks to Cajun Tiger via Kara Zalan Blog)

Of course the Red Cross is on the scene as always and is always a good way to lend support.

There is always prayer. You may scoff at my suggestion but there is no hurt caused by the pleading to a higher power that I personally know exists. I've personally experienced the power of prayer in my own life as one of my boys lie dead in a hospital years ago. It will work with a contrite spirit and a pure heart. The clarity of mind following your prayer will at times point out the little things that you can do to help your hurting fellow citizen. That alone on a grand scale can move mountains... and hopefully in this case water.

As Americans we are our own best resource. We have seen some of the worst scenarios come to pass over this week but over the coming months we will also see the heart of charity beat across this nation as we rally to help our hurting brothers and sisters.

God Bless this Great Nation.

Why Didn't I Think of This?

Is this not the lefty's Utopic Guantanamo?

Seems like they're willing to intern themselves. My suggestion is that we allow them to gather inside zoo exhibits and feed them completely organic pure foods as long as that keeps them contained.

Seems like this is a much easier alternative than attempting to re-pass Sedition laws!

Besides we can classify what these dopes are doing as saving animals which is their sworn purpose in life.

All we have to do is nod and smile and say "yeah, you're saving all those animals that could be here in your place." They'll feel so proud of themselves.

Good hippy... fire bad, food good...


Hit and Miss

I haven't had the time to do much writing or reading in the ole blog-o-sphere this week, I've found a new friend, Xbox Live.

That along with a possible unhealthy appreciation of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The UFC fights and reality show premiered its debut episode of its second season on Monday night. Talk about guilty pleasures!

Xbox Live is a blast but I'm finding myself play it when I would normally be immersed the internet blog-opolis. Thus the last thing I need (and naturally the first thing I want) for X-mas this year is the Xbox 360! Hey, you all knew I was a total geek!

Anyway, thought I'd toss out some links to those stories and bloggers who I did spend a bit of time reading this week:

First up is an excellent article found through the Savage Nation and posted up on the site. James P. Pinkerton reminds us that:
The withdrawal from the Gaza Strip is a study in power dynamics. Between the Israelis and Palestinians? No, between the modern military and the modern media.
Kira Zalan analyzes the next step Israel needs to take (because they're the only ones who make the moves) towards the "Peace Process". Perhaps it should really be called the "Piece Process" in reference to how broken the situation is. Without reciprocal actions from the Arab side of the equation, there's not much hope for freedom's sake.

Also posted at Savage all week was the Plantiffs 4th Amended Petition in the case of Illegal Immigrants vs. American Homeowner.

No news about the War in Iraq is complete without an update from Michael Yon. Read Gates of Fire and hold on tight. This is real, raw, uncensored journalism.

Why won't this loony toon Sheehan disappear? The media is using her to channel their thoughts on President Bush just as she claims to have the ability to channel the thoughts of her dead son.

This is a broken lady... It's sad that her ignorance is being so taken advantage of. Have you heard her ignorant statements? She may be passionate, unfortunately (for the lefties) she is not very bright. Beth breaks it down in one basic statement:
You are pathetic, anti-American, self-loathing, vile scum. Just like your jihadi comrades.
Guess what, she backs it up! Check it out...

Always on a lighter note, Dr. Phat Tony had a link to a link that had me rolling on the floor laughing...

InsoluBlog speaks insightfully on Fortune Cookies.

One of the good guys on our country's thin blue line never puts up a bad post, despite his humble self-stigmatization. If you ever had a beer with a Philly Cop fresh off duty and winding down from his day, you've hung with Wyatt Earp. Stop by and wish him well... not a good week in the Philly PD. Hang in there brother, we all owe you big time for the sacrifices you make each shift you work!

Also outta Philly, Katey takes the scenic route to work inducing a spontaneous change in hair color.

Damian moderates a fascinating meeting between Senators Hagel, Allen, Graham, and Lott. What I wouldn't give to have seen the webcast of this 'panel discussion'.

jimmyb the CUG hosts this weeks Carnival of Comedy. A link fest of posts much funnier than you'll ever find on my site!

Anyway, shameless links to many sites is my way of making up for my laziness this week in blog maintenance. Just awaiting some inspiration from the BlogGods...

Meanwhile I'm gonna fire up Madden '06 and get spanked using the Buffalo Bills. Oh, and get some work done... (boss if you're reading this, you know I'm getting it done!)

Oh man, I gotta get ahead of the game. My wife and I are flying out to Appleton, WI next weekend to be in my Cousin's wedding! Can't wait to go hang with the crazy Guinness pounding, black belt wearing, Irish wing of my awesome family. In fact, it's just what I need! Now you know why I'm fascinated with the UFC...

Ask America!

It wasn't too long ago that I received a call from a phone banker for the GOP. I wasn't ashamed to express how I felt on particular issues which resulted in a bunch of uhhhhh's and ooohhh's- basically a dead line.

Now I got in my hot little hands
"Ask America 2005 Nationwide Policy Survey".

Anyone else receive one of these? It's on nice think paper, has a faux CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT stamp on the front, wow, I must really be special!

First things first, when I open the first page, there's a "Survey Certification and Reply" section asking me to give my most generous contribution to help pay for this 'historic survey project'.

Anyway... I wanted to toss out some of these questions to you and see your replies if you were to send this back (which I plan to do with a few of my own little heartfelt desires)
QUESTION #2: Do you think American troops should pursue terrorists and their leaders even if it means going into countries where we are not invited?
I figured that we have an open invitation to any terrorist supporting regime. If not, who needs an invitation?
QUESTION #4: How confident are you that the newly created Department of Homeland Security will be able to keep America safe from future terrorist attacks?
Everything I needed to say about this I said HERE.
QUESTION #7: Do you think our government is doing enough to secure America's borders against foreign terrorists?
Is this question serious???
QUESTION #27: What do you see as the major cause of the decline in America's education?
I think I'll lean back, wind up, and take a swing... WHACK!
And just for good measure, POW!!!
Can you believe the attitude of kids these days???
QUESTION #34: Do you support President Bush's Emergency Plan for AIDS relief, a five-year $15 billion initiative to turn the tide in combating the global HIV/AIDS pandemic?
Yeah, I think filling the war chests of dictatorial regimes massacring it's own citizens by the millions is an outstanding idea. You think 15 billion dollars is going to be spent on stemming the spread of AIDS? Fat chance.

And finally...
QUESTION #56: In your opinion, how does the federal government best function?
-When one party controls both the White House and Congress?
-When one party controls the White House and another party controls Congress?
-When control of Congress is split between both parties?
-No Opinion
Too too easy... When it is in Recess.


Me Immigrant, You Racist...

After you click on the picture and check out the amazing photos taken, check out the title of this little diddy:

Migrants awarded vigilante's Ariz. ranch

Obviously some poor abused 'miiiiiiiiiigrants' can better manage the land owned by an evil vigilante.

Apparently allowing a safe portal on the border for all manner of humanity to enter without scrutiny is preferrable to a racist "American" who takes pride in his land ownership.

Besides, it was their's first eh? Sounds like time to evacuate the states of Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, California... a'la the Gaza Strip... and wherever else for the sake of appeasing pooooooooooooor miiiiiiiigrants.
(Who make up over a third of our federal jail population)

Lets consider the source:

Andrew Pollack
New York Times
Aug. 19, 2005 12:00 AM

Case Closed.

Wait the obligatory 20 minutes after eating before reading this article to avoid regurgitation.
DOUGLAS - Spent shells litter the ground at what is left of the firing range, and camouflage outfits still hang in a storeroom. Just a few months ago, this ranch was known as Camp Thunderbird, the headquarters of a paramilitary group that vowed to use force to keep illegal immigrants from sneaking across the border from Mexico.

Now, the 70-acre property about two miles from the border is being given to two immigrants the group caught trying to enter the United States illegally.

The land transfer satisfies judgments in a lawsuit in which the immigrants had claimed that Casey Nethercott, the owner of the ranch and a former leader of the vigilante group Ranch Rescue, had harmed them.
Had 'harmed' them? Exactly how? Oh, he must have knocked the English outta him/her/whoever rendering them speechless.

Now for the brilliant statement from a scumbag lawyer:
"Certainly it's poetic justice that these undocumented workers own this land," said Morris S. Dees Jr., chief trial counsel of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., which represented the immigrants.
Oh man, one of the veins in my eye just exploded...

What the hell is this schmuck from Alabama doing involved in this case?

Obviously he considers himself an expert because Alabama borders states full of racists from Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee!

Ok you Alabama Bloggers, time to raise some hell at the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery. This is out of control.

Well, nevermind... unless you're a poor oppressed illegal, you won't be heard.

The immigrants getting the ranch, Edwin Alfredo Mancia Gonzales and Fatima Del Socorro Leiva Medina, could not be reached for comment. Kelley Bruner, a lawyer at the law center, said they were happy.

Bruner said that Mancia and Leiva, from El Salvador but not related, would not live at the ranch and would probably sell it. Nethercott bought the ranch in 2003 for $120,000.

Mancia, who lives in Los Angeles, and Leiva, who lives in the Dallas area, have applied for visas available to immigrants who are the victims of certain crimes, Bruner said. Until a decision is made on their applications, they can stay and work in the United States.
Cha-freakin-Ching, they just won the lottery while breaking the law!

This is nothing more than a big ole sign to the illegals screaming, come'on over whoever you are and here's what you say when you get here;

'I immigrant, you racist, I sue, ACLU'
(thanks Savage)
Bill Dore, a Douglas resident briefly affiliated with Ranch Rescue and still active in the border-patrolling Minuteman Project, called the land transfer "ridiculous."

"The illegals are coming over here," Dore said. "They are getting the American property. Hell, I'd come over, too. Get some American property, make some money from the gringos."
Hell, why not?

Perhaps this admission will land me in Guantanamo Bay or something but if each night I was gathering up bus loads of illegals as they crossed my front yard, I'd most likely do something about it.

Eventually I'd come across someone who thought they had a pair and that they deserve the right to run all over MY property... they'd be promply shut up and shut down. Insensitive? You bet'cha.

Apparently this tactic will land you in jail for 5 years and have your land SEIZED!! Especially if guns are involved.

WTF is going on in this country?!?! My head hurts.

"Able Danger" Dangerous Indeed

From CNN:
So much for the Blue Ribbon panel of experts on the 9/11 Commission Report eh?

As soon as the dust begins to settle from this media blitz that Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer has begun, the gathering momentum of this story may possibly make Watergate and the Iran-Contra 'scandals' look like childs-play.

If his story holds then heads will finally roll (most likely from the Dept. of Defense) for the tragedy of 9/11.

You know how the Mainstream Media is going to angle this already so be prepared.

Is this just another neo-con conspiracy that is finally being unearthed as explained by lefty bloggers? It seems much less complicated than that...

Col. Shaffer seems pretty genuine and credible, at least to me. His life is going to pretty much end as he knows it because either way, half of Washington's elites are going to hate his guts. He doesn't seem to care much as he seems to be driven to do what will make intelligence gathering a higher priority in the future, to be taken more seriously.

'Bout time eh?

I'm sure Jamie Gorelick has some accountability here which was why she was protected from questioning by being put directly on the 9/11 Commission.

This is going to be a hell of a tug o'war ahead of us between the Media and the Dept. of Defense. It is going to get extremely ugly and most likely hurt the chances of many GOP candidates in future elections as the lefties are loading their cannons with any 'bad' news they can get their hands on while they jump on their 'see I told you so' bandwagon.

Hang on tight... this is just getting started...

Evacuation Underway

Aug. 17: Trying to shame Israeli troops, a settler holds up her baby in front of soldiers waiting to evict the settlers.

UPDATE: 8/18, from Drudge: Israeli Riot Police Storm Gaza Synagogue

UPDATE: 8/18 4pm EST from WND: Settlers concede: 'We lost the battle'

I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around this madness on the Gaza Strip.

One thing that isn't difficult to understand is that this plan that may have appeased some political leaders, is only going to further legitimize the method of terrorism as a political tool to twist the arms of sissies with bureaucratic power.

How long until the Commandos are unleashed... or are they already?

And after the Jews are expelled from the West Bank and Gaza Strip...

(which aren't the same place- which is news to the moron news anchors who are only trained to read teleprompters)

...and all the greenhouses, agricultural fields, and industries are turned over to the Palestinians, as thanks for not setting off as many suicide bombs as they presumably could have I guess, what's going to happen to these areas?

Is the Palestinian 'leadership' truly going to attempt in the setting up of a peaceful nation living side by side with its natural born enemy? Get real, of course not. The Palestinian Leadership is as fractured amongst itself as they are against the State of Israel.

Killing Jews is the only thing that unites them.

Good thing though that the great General Sharon, who was put in office to avoid exactly what is going on right now, is taking a page from the infuriating American politicians playbook by feeling 'heartbroken'. How reassuring.

Apparently some Jews feel as if they're left with no other recourse...
Nidam said the woman who burned herself carried a sign reading, "Impose a closure on the media, destroy the disengagement, put Sharon before a military court."

So, Whad'I Miss?

Ok, So I got home Saturday night and just haven't had the heart, till now, to pay much attention to the maddening current of current event news coverage. Still got my head in the Hawaiian clouds...

...not to mention the food, man is that stuff sweet! I found the local Hawaiian restaurant right away and made some new friends.

Gotta get my mind out of my stomach, so I'm wondering what have I missed in the world of talk radio, internet news, and the good ole blog-o-sphere...

I'm kinda glad that I've missed this whole Cindy Sheehan fiasco. Man, what an embarassment to humankind this woman is. Ya still can't help but feel sorry for her ya know? ...Anyway...

Doc is on an entrepreneurial tear with his swag shop. Don't worry, he gives his sweat shop workers free annual prostate exams.

Mensa Barbie has a deeply profound piece linked to her post here. Thanks for the ps warning, I found myself needing to rely on it.

Kira Zalan explores the birth pains of an Iraqi Constitution as well as shedding light on why nationalism amongst Iraqis (if there is such a thing as an Iraqi) may be impossible.

CUG had me rolling on the floor with his Gay List.

Savage blows the doors off of the 9/11 Commission findings with this story about the covert operation "Able Danger"

Pundit Review interviews Michael Yon over WRKO out of Boston. Get to know this man Mr. Yon! He is doing some amazing work and you can get to know him better with this radio interview... well worth the couple minutes!

Back and Tan

This is me on top of Diamond HeadImage hosting by Photobucket

We had an awesome time in Hawaii.

Followed some of your advice (thanks Kira) and headed to the north shore of Oahu and did some cliff diving...

...still feelin the backflip that didn't go all the way around.

Ate some plate lunches at Ted's Bakery and that really hit the spot.

Next morning I was let off the hook by the boss man and wasn't required to attend the Job Fair we were holding in Honolulu.

So I headed east along the beach for a few miles and climbed to the top of Diamond Head with my friend Ryan. There were incredible views from the top of a lighthouse and of Waikiki Beach.

I spent the rest of that afternoon getting massaged... I hadn't walked 9 miles in a day in ages (let alone climing uphill like a mountain goat) and was pretty hurtin.

Later on them fruity drinks did the trick tho.

We did the dinner cruise thing, kayaked out to a small island and snorkled (I found a sexy blonde island beauty waiting for me there), and wound up eventually getting a roof view of the Island from the top of the Mariott.

Ok ok ok... vacation was fun. But here's the real story.

Coming back home on saturday night.
Flying out of Honolulu on a direct flight to Vegas.

As the same bags I always travel with are being scanned I notice that the security personnel seem agitated at the sight of my bag's x-ray. It promptly gets opened up and out comes my big ole buck knife!

This is a knife that my dad bought for me many years ago and I've always had in that bag. I just forgot it was tucked in a little nook and cranny in one of the pockets. I then realize that if a big ole jack knife isn't allowed onto planes how come it took Hawaiian security to find it? I've travelled with this bag over the last couple years several times through more than a few airports and this has never been caught!

Lets hear it for the Hawaiians eh! I wound up just surrendering it and having to fill out paperwork that probably ensures full body cavity searches at every airport I travel through from here on out. Yikes...

Hawaii Here I Come!

I'm outta here for a week!

Yeah, I'm excited! This will be the first time in 7 and 1/2 years that my wife and I will have this much time together alone on a vacation!

Unlike Damian however over at Conservathink, I won't have any slave labor (jimmyb) maintaining my site while I'm gone.

I hope everyone that has been stopping by will remember me when I come back!

I hope my 5 kids don't destroy my house while I'm gone!

Have an awesome week y'all... I'll be thinkin about'cha! Well, maybe not...

Italy's Gold Rush

From the TimesOnline
Analysis of waste water in Italy shows a startlingly high level of drug abuse

THE rivers of Italy are flowing with cocaine, say scientists who have adopted a new approach to measuring the extent of drug misuse. The biggest river, the Po, carries the equivalent of about 4kg (8lb 13oz) of the drug a day, with a street value of about £20,000.

Cocaine users among the five million people who live in the Po River basin in northern Italy consume the drug and excrete its metabolic by-product, benzoylecgonine (BE). This goes from sewers into the river. So a team led by Dr Ettore Zuccato, of the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research in Milan, estimated the use of cocaine by testing the waters of the Po for BE, and for any cocaine that had passed through the body unaltered or reached the sewers in other ways.
Let the Po panning begin. This is exactly what the Italians need to lay off of all that food! It was bound to happen...Perhaps purposefully to wean them off of all that food that I've gotten to intimately know and love them for.

I smell the ominous odor of conspiracy.

When I attended Syracuse University, my best friend's mom, Mrs. Argiro, used to wake at 3am with us rolling in with a few too many in us, and restlessly cook us a 5 course meal of whatever she had on hand (the homemade pizza was freaking amazing).

This told me all I needed to know about the Italian's respect for excellent home cooked food. Interestingly enough, it was the conversations we had with that wise woman as we sat there like puppies being teased by a rawhide bone that life's lessons were learned and fond memories were made by her teasing out of us our confessions. We stayed straight because Mrs. Argiro would find out! What would we do for chow at 3am if she was disappointed in us???

This event in Italy could quite possibly destroy the great tradition of feeding drunk college students at 3am!

This is unacceptable so I propose that all those in Italy (exactly zero of you reading this right now) get to the Po River now and do what it takes to clean that river so that the future Mrs. Argiros will be there to help lead and inspire the next generation of dopey boys.

Jim Kelly's Son Dies

Jim Kelly has been one of my favorite Pro Football players of all time. He's made his sons inherited illness no secret. A few hours ago, this little hero lost his life.
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Hunter Kelly, whose battle with a fatal nervous system disease inspired his Hall of Fame quarterback father Jim Kelly's charitable works, died Friday morning. He was 8.

"Our prayers go to the family and kids," Jim Kelly's brother, Dan, told The Associated Press.

Hunter's Hope Foundation spokesman John Dudek said Hunter died at the Kelly's home in Orchard Park, N.Y. Dudek said Hunter had been having trouble breathing, possibly the result of the humidity and high temperatures that have hovered in the 90s this week.

"He has been struggling for a while," Dudek said. "They did note that he had a high temperature yesterday ... and apparently, he had stopped breathing."

Dudek said the family called 911.

The foundation is named after Hunter, and was established in 1997 by Jim Kelly and his wife Jill. It has raised more than $6 million and awarded more than $3.8 million to leukodystrophy and other neurological disease-related research.

Born in 1997, Hunter Kelly was given no more than three years to live after being diagnosed with Krabbe disease, an inherited degenerative disorder of the central and peripheral nervous systems. The disease hinders development of the myelin sheath, a fatty covering that protects the brain's nerve fibers.

The disease has no known cure.
My prayers are with the Kelly family...

I remember when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and said during his acceptance speech, as pictured above;
"It has been written throughout my career that toughness is my trademark. Well, the toughest person I've ever met in my life is my hero, my soldier, my son, Hunter. I love you, buddy."
I got the chills, he is still a hero of mine.
Finally rest in Peace little Hunter...

Oil War

Several months ago I expressed my concern for the next global race over a finite Oil supply.

It's too easy to dismiss this dilemma to a lack of domestic drilling. There is so much more to this debate.

It's time for a new Manhattan Project.

Our generation, like it or not, will be the ones to solve this problem. (Thanks Alan, where'd ya go?)

Ok, I know that the Christian Science Monitor is not much more than bird cage lining, but this is a story that, for a very good reason, resonates with me.
Although a Chinese oil company withdrew its bid for a major US-based energy producer this week, the effort put America on notice: China and other nations have launched a concerted push to secure access to oil and natural gas, and the United States must consider how to respond.

It's probably too strong to call it a pipeline-and-tanker version of a global arms race - in fact, that's precisely what many world leaders hope to avoid.
To deny this dilemma is to stick your head in the sand.

Thankfully we have an oil driven administration in power, like it or not. This is going to be an issue that our kids deal with if we don't.

Instead of racing to the highest number of nukes, it'll be a race to the highest number of oil barrels in reserve. The time is now...

Kim Jong-Don't Mess Wit Me-Il

When he's not making Tiger Woods look amateur, he's building nukes to take out the lone world superpower, the USA. The one, the only, Kim Jong Mentally-Il!
Kim pilots jet fighters, pens operas, produces movies and accomplished a feat unmatched in the annals of professional golf by shooting 11 holes-in-one on the first round he ever played.

When he's not levatating near the local snow covered mountain range in his Columbine issue trenchcoat, he's 'being the ball' on the golf course confounding the PGA Pros.


Mystery 'Roids

As for how the steroids got into his system, he blames Glen Reynolds for adding it to his morning "protein" shakes and that he has confidence in the bloggers of the Alliance to get to the bottom of this for him!

Evacuation Getting Ugly

This evacuation of the Gaza Strip is going to get much more ugly before it gets better. How would you react if you were told you had to leave your home because some beaurocrats thought that if some terrorists were just appeased then life would get back to normal. Oh, and by the way, pack up your things, you're moving out...

These jewish settlers of the Gaza Strip aren't having any of it. Over 50,000 are gathering (as I write this) in Sderot, Negev:
About 50,000 Israelis congregated here in Sderot, a Negev town 12 miles south of Gaza's Gush Katif slate of Jewish communities, to protest the Aug. 17 evacuation and attempt to march toward the Katif entrance.
Uh oh, the natives are restless... send in the Commandos!
But wait... we have these imbeciles that the commandos should be targeting but considering their aim, perhaps they should be left alone to knock eachother off...
As the speeches were ending, Hamas fired a Qassam rocket in the direction of the Sderot rally, but it landed a few kilometers south and killed a Palestinian.
Freaking Idiots, serves 'em right. I'm sure the death of the perhaps completely innocent Palistinian will in one way or another be blamed on the gathering of the 50,000 in the march.

This is going to be really really ugly.

Saddam's trial on live television
The trial of Saddam Hussein will be shown on live television, Iraq's national security adviser said yesterday.

The trial will show the Arab and Muslim world "that this is going to be a fair, just trial with a defence counsel in there, with a proper prosecuting counsel as well there," Iraqi national security adviser Muwaffaq Rubaie told CNN. "And everybody will watch this trial live on television."
Ok, here's what I want to see...
Ramsey Clark vs. Marcia Clark

Have it held at Fenway Park, Boston, MA.

and refereed (reefer-eed?) by Royce Gracie...

Austrailian for News

From the Savage Nation

Let's face facts, Europe's being run by cowards.
We find ourselves faced with a conflict that will most likely last longer than any of the great military clashes of the last century, a conflict conducted by an enemy that cannot be tamed by tolerance and accommodation because that enemy is actually spurred on by such gestures. Such responses have proven to be signs of weakness.

Is there any wonder why Australia is such a staunch American Ally?


Contribution Request

Ironically I was called by a Republican Party phone bank worker who was obtaining pledges for contributions. (Ironic in light of my last post)

I'm making breakfast for the kids and the phone rings...
*RING* Hello? McPeak's country kitchen, may I take your order?

--uhh, hello, can I talk with... Mr. Mick eek, uhh, I'm calling on behalf of the Republican Party and wanted to inform you that the Democrats are getting ready for war, they want Hillary Clinton to be their president and we all know how horrible that will be for our Country. Sir, people from around the country are contributing to the Republican Party to keep this from happening... can I commit you to $100 Mr. Mick phreak?

Easy there tiger... If in fact Hillary Clinton becomes president, I could probably finally expect my 'conservative' representatives to represent me again. They don't seem to be doing so unless they are out of power. Why would I want to contribute to the current lax attitude in Washington DC?

--Oh, well, because we all know what will happen if Hillary becomes president! It would be disasterous! Nobody wants that!

I'll tell ya what my friend. As soon as I see our southern border close up I'll consider being a contributor again. What exactly is the purpose of the Dept of Homeland Security if our borders are open?

--But, but, Hillary could be president!!! We can't allow this to happen!!

Make a note and give it to your supervisor, no money until the borders tighten up.

--*deep sigh* Thank you for your time Mr. Mick teak, *click*
I hope that I wasn't the first or last of those he called with that message.

What the hell is so hard with pronouncing McPeak?


Homeland InSecurity

From WorldNetDaily:
Issuing yet the latest warning of the threat of nuclear terrorism in the U.S., Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said there are far worse security problems facing the country than bombings of mass-transit systems.

In comments during a visit to Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California this week, Chertoff said the foremost concern for the nation's security now is the threat of a larger chemical, biological or nuclear attack.
What exactly does the Homeland of Security do besides provide a figgure head (and quite the intimidating looking one at that) to tell us what impending doom we're approaching all the while encouraging us to go about our day as normal?

As long as this Department of Homeland Security ignores the fact that our backdoor is flung wide open and allowing anyone who can get across entry to our towns and cities, I'm going to refuse to call it "Homeland Security" but rather it shall be deemed the "Department of Homeland Surveilance".

Here's how a good Department of Homeland Security in a time of war (if in fact we have actually declared war yet) would behave:

1. Mail to each registered voter, in some form of newsletter style update, detailing what threats are imminent and why. Make these mailings region specific to include details on what threats face local landmarks, water/food supplies, important infrastructure. We need to know what to protect in our neighborhood regions, what to look for as defined by 'suspicious behavior', and who to call when this behavior is observed.

Wouldn't it be nice to exist as cohesive neighborhoods again? This defense is far more effective than any other, it's the one that allowed us to throw off the shackles of the British Empire 229 years ago. Many things have changed since then but the concept and cohesivness of neighborhood togetherness has not. It just goes un-utilized anymore. These are millions of eyes and ears that the Dept of Homeland Security could really use in protecton assistance.

2. This Dept needs to mail to each registered voter details on how to obtain a concealed weapon permit and which states they are recognized in. Give information on how to legally obtain guns, store them in your house, and references to safety classes in their area. You know, things all Americans were taught as kids a long time ago... time to resurrect this American attitude on guns... it's what's kept us free and any gov't institution which advises against this is suspect, not to mention unconstitutional.

Hopefully a side effect of this would be a massive wave of conceal carry ban repeals in the liberal states where CCW's are illegal. How people in these states have been brainwashed into being more scared of responsible gun owners rather than the criminals who are always going to own guns I will never figgure out.

3. I'd like to see information what to do if a nuke or biological bomb goes off in your area. How is a safe shelter built? How is food-storage maintained? What's a list of absolute necessities for the period of at least 72 hours per person...

You get my drift? I know that there is already resources out there for these types of questions but my question is, what is our Dept of Homeland Security really doing?
The DHS is very focused on interdiction, government continuity and infrastructure protection, but it has not yet prepared for civil defense, which is the protection of civilians in time of war or disaster.
Ahhh, got'cha... I see how it is.
