John Murtha: No End To
His Absurdity And Denial
John Murtha - the Pennsylvania Defeat-O-Crat - dismissed the New York Times story that cited progress in the War in Iraq as "rhetoric". Turkish Press:
A top Democratic lawmaker Tuesday dismissed the findings of two longtime Iraq war critics, who cited a dramatic improvement in the situation there following the infusion of thousands of additional US troops.
"I dismiss it at as rhetoric," said US Representative John Murtha, a former marine, congressional heavyweight on military matters, and outspoken Iraq War critic.
"I don't know where they were staying. I don't know what they saw. But I know this: that it's not getting better," Murtha said on CNN television.
"It's over-optimist. It's an illusion," the Pennsylvania lawmaker continued.
Almost two years ago Murtha told the Decatur Daily that, "The war in Iraq is not going as advertised. It is a flawed policy wrapped in illusion."
The only illusion going on is that Liberals like Murtha identify with, and have more compassion for, terrorists, al-Qaida and the Taliban than they do their own fellow Americans. Folks like Murtha provide legitimacy for terrorists. Why, terrorists couldn't buy themselves better publicity if they tried.
Clearly Murtha is still giving aid and comfort to the enemy. This man wake up angry, spends the entire day angry and goes to sleep angry. What's he angry about? He's angry about whatever the Liberal Politburo tell him to be angry about.
Murtha is so removed from reality it is no longer funny to take pot-shots at this dementia-ridden fool from Pennsylvania. By comparison, Murtha make Grandpa Simpson seem like the eternal optimist.
This is another great opportunity to plug bootmurtha.com.
Michelangelo Antonioni Dies
Italian film director Michelangelo Antonioni, renowned for his 1966 release Blow-Up, has died aged 94.
He gained two Oscar nominations for the iconic release, and was awarded an honorary Academy Award for his life's work in 1995.
Another great Italian director, Mario Monicelli, said Antonioni was "one of the masters of Italian and international cinema".
"He found out how to tell things, emotions, that before him nobody think could ever be told through this mean of expression which is cinema," he said.
Actress Sarah Miles, who appeared in Blow Up, told the BBC World Service's Europe Today that Antonioni was "a rogue and a tyrant and a brilliant man".
"He was all things, as everybody is who has got any great talent. He had his dark side and his light side," she said.
"He invented his own language of cinema - that's what made him very, very inventive," he said. "He didn't owe anything to anybody else. He was a total original."
The first was Blow-Up, in which a photographer appears to have uncovered a murder in his photos.
Shot in London, and starring David Hemmings and Vanessa Redgrave, it was his biggest international hit.
Antonioni captured the "flower power" era in 1970, filming Zabriskie Point in California, while Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson starred as a journalist.
Rest In Peace Mr. Antonioni
His 1966 film "Blow-Up" was the basis for Brian DePalma's 1981 film "Blow Out".

Kevin Garnett was traded on Tuesday in the largest trade for a single player in NBA history.
The Boston Herald reports also that Garnett has agreed to a three-year extension with the Celtics, in addition to the two years left on contract, which would keep him in Boston through the 2011-12 season.
The Celtics acquired Garnett, a 10-time All-Star and the NBA MVP in 2004, from Minnesota in exchange for Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes, Gerald Green, Theo Ratliff, Sebastian Telfair, a 2009 first-round draft pick and a return of Minnesota's conditional first-round pick previously obtained in the Ricky Davis-Wally Szczerbiak trade.
The Timberwolves also receive cash considerations in the deal. The 2009 pick Boston is sending to Minnesota is top-three protected.
Trade Kevin Garnett...Please!
Reports surfaced Monday afternoon that the Timberwolves have resumed talks with the Boston Celtics that involve moving Kevin Garnett to Beantown.
What's he done in his 12 year tenure with the T-Wolves? Uh...not a damn thing other than enrich himself. He's not another Jordan who can win games, playoffs or a championship on his own. Okay, almost on his own. Get rid of him.
Could the Boston Celtics be his new home? ESPN:
Multiple sources told ESPN.com on Sunday night that former teammates Kevin McHale and Danny Ainge had revived their collapsed deal, with that revival now expected to end Garnett's 12-season association with Minnesota by sending him to Ainge's Celtics.
Muslims At U of Michigan
Granted Special Rights
When Majed Afana needs to pray while attending classes at the University of Michigan in Dearborn, the 19-year-old Muslim usually will duck into the campus library's bathroom, strip off his shoes and awkwardly strain to wash his feet in the sink.
Water often pools at his feet, he says, making it slippery to balance on one foot.
Some of the sinks have started to pull away from the wall, in part from years of use by others like him — who, according to their faith, must clean their feet before praying five times a day.
So when the school recently approved installing two foot baths in a pair of new unisex bathrooms to accommodate the needs of male and female Muslim students, the local Islamic community started planning ways to raise the estimated $25,000 cost.
But the university told them not to bother — it would pay for the foot baths.
"I think it's great," said Afana, a pre-med student at the commuter school, where a reported 11% of the 8,600 students are Muslim.
"What we've been doing all these years has been dangerous and can be a safety hazard."
The university says it's tapping student infrastructure fees for the unisex bathrooms, which will also have diaper-changing stations and facilities for mothers to nurse infants, because this is an issue of trying to make its bathrooms safer and improve plumbing — not of endorsing a religion.
The fees are part of the school's general fund, paid by students — not by taxpayers — and often used for campus maintenance and general construction.
"We see this as a reasonable accommodation to a customary practice of a growing number of our students and visitors on campus," said Terry Gallagher, a university spokesman.
But critics have been flocking to conservative blogs and Michigan radio talk shows to rail against the plan.
Critics insist that such efforts are giving Islamic followers preferential treatment over other faiths.
"Plumbing? You must be kidding. That's an after-the-fact justification for something that is being done for the purpose of meeting a religious demand," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, a religious liberty watchdog group based in Washington.
"You start permanently changing your architecture for one religious group, you have to do it for all. After all, what's the difference between a foot bath used as part of a ritual and a fountain that can be used for a baptism?" asked Lynn.
"Considering there are 2,000 different religious groups in America, that's a very slippery slope."
Yet the American Civil Liberties Union, a fierce advocate for separating church and state, seems to be giving the foot baths a nod.
Though the plan raises a red flag because it's illegal for schools to use public funds to install religious symbols such as crucifixes, ACLU of Michigan officials said, the question of whether Muslim prayer rugs or foot baths fall into the same category remains fuzzy.
"We have never encountered a situation where the motivation seems to be a response to a practical cleanliness and safety issue," the ACLU of Michigan said in a statement. "Indeed, if the university refused to allow Muslim students to wash their feet in the sink without there being a viable alternative, we would have concerns about whether the university was unconstitutionally interfering with students' right to practice their religion."
The university first considered the idea of installing the foot baths two years ago, when school officials learned that students and visitors were using regular sinks to clean their feet before praying.
Gallagher said the practice was "causing a lot of wear and tear on the library bathroom" and on a second facility near the school's two "reflection" areas where students gather to relax. Muslim students often meet there throughout the day to pray, as do Christian organizations, he said.
What's happening in Dearborn, a suburb of about 96,600 west of Detroit, is part of a national trend, as a number of public schools seek to meet the needs of Muslim students.
At least nine universities in the U.S. have rooms on campus dedicated to Muslim prayers, and more than a dozen schools have either installed foot baths like the ones proposed in Dearborn or are in the process of constructing them, according to Farhan Latif, a University of Michigan graduate student and advisor to the Muslim Students' Assn. at the Dearborn campus.
"We are a multicultural campus and need to reflect that," said Latif, who also works as an admissions counselor on campus.
"What's the big deal?"
Countered Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, a conservative think tank based in Philadelphia: "Muslims have the same rights and obligations as other citizens.
"But they don't have special rights … and this is clearly a religious accommodation."
"ACLU of Michigan officials said, the question of whether Muslim prayer rugs or foot baths fall into the same category remains fuzzy." - Huh, all of a sudden the ACLU finds the mixing of Church and State "fuzzy". What a riot, what a bunch of hypocrites - what a crock of feces the ACLU is.

Bill Press Proven WRONG!
The story goes back to May 22, 2005 when Liberal Gas-Bag Bill Press - with his pursed little lips that amazingly resemble a puckered anus - predicted that the Newsweek Koran-Flushed-Down-a-Toilet story would be proven true within six months.
Well Billy Boy, you were wrong, as usual - blinded perhaps by your hatred for all things non-Liberal.
In fact, Newsweek admits the story was unsubstantiated:
Based on what we know now, we are retracting our original story that an internal military investigation had uncovered Qur'an abuse at Guantanamo Bay.
Press is part of a whole host of liars on Liberal Talk Radio who spew their unsubstantiated venom because they all suffer from Bush Derangement Syndrome.

New York Times Says U.S. Winning In Iraq
Two uber-uber Liberals, Michael O'Hanlon and Kenneth Pollack, who returned from a visit in Iraq, writing for the NYT say:
[The Bush] administration’s critics, in part as a result, seem unaware of the significant changes taking place.
Here is the most important thing Americans need to understand: We are finally getting somewhere in Iraq, at least in military terms. As two analysts who have harshly criticized the Bush administration’s miserable handling of Iraq, we were surprised by the gains we saw and the potential to produce not necessarily “victory” but a sustainable stability that both we and the Iraqis could live with.
After the furnace-like heat, the first thing you notice when you land in Baghdad is the morale of our troops. In previous trips to Iraq we often found American troops angry and frustrated — many sensed they had the wrong strategy, were using the wrong tactics and were risking their lives in pursuit of an approach that could not work.
Today, morale is high. The soldiers and marines told us they feel that they now have a superb commander in Gen. David Petraeus; they are confident in his strategy, they see real results, and they feel now they have the numbers needed to make a real difference.
Everywhere, Army and Marine units were focused on securing the Iraqi population, working with Iraqi security units, creating new political and economic arrangements at the local level and providing basic services — electricity, fuel, clean water and sanitation — to the people. Yet in each place, operations had been appropriately tailored to the specific needs of the community. As a result, civilian fatality rates are down roughly a third since the surge began — though they remain very high, underscoring how much more still needs to be done.
[The situation in Iraq] look[s] much better than before. American advisers told us that many of the corrupt and sectarian Iraqi commanders who once infested the force have been removed. The American high command assesses that more than three-quarters of the Iraqi Army battalion commanders in Baghdad are now reliable partners
A major factor in the sudden change in American fortunes has been the outpouring of popular animus against Al Qaeda and other Salafist groups, as well as (to a lesser extent) against Moktada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army.
But there is enough good happening on the battlefields of Iraq today that Congress should plan on sustaining the effort at least into 2008.
The surge and General Petraeus' plan is working. This of course begs the question that the U.S. and our Allies didn't enter Iraq with enough force from the very start for purely political reasons - those to appease the Pacifistic Left, of course.
People and civilizations do not change overnight. I'm surprised the Left expected the Iraqis to immediately embrace a democracy after Saddam Hussein was removed from power. Normally, the Left is willing to take as much time as they want to change whatever it is they want to change; the war on poverty and the war on drugs are two prime example of the Left willing to accept that passage of decades before "change" happens - and sometimes change doesn't happen or the degree of change is negligible.
Oh, but not with a war and situation that it took a Republican President to have the fortitude to take on. The previous administration had a draft-dodging president who was too much of an appeaser to deal with or handle Iraq. If Hussein had had 22-year old female interns, well, it probably would have been a different story for Bubba.
The KoS Krowd - as of the time of my publishing this - have nothing on their site about the NYT story. Think Regress bravely calls O'Hanlon and Pollack "wrong". Both sites do have time to note that approval ratings for Bush plummet in Alabama. That's funny - perhaps these demented and deranged writers don't know that Bush isn't running for re-election in 2008.
The LiberTard sites are too busy hyping and supporting the Democrat Dog and Pony Show on the non-story of Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez. The Dems have yet to substantiate one, single, solitary offense committed by Mr. Gonzalez.
The Dems are on a fishing expedition, no doubt about it. And they're not catching a damn thing, as usual.
So...who will be the first LeftTard to call the NYT a ROM? Will it be the Kossucks, ThinkRegress or maybe the ChubbyTard in Maine? Who cares what this slim minority of Marxists Haters think or say? They are as irrelevant as they've always been.
Ingmar Bergman Dies
Bergman’s dozens of works combined deep seriousness, indelible imagery and unexpected flashes of humor in finely written, inventively shot explorations of difficult subjects such as plague and madness.
[described] by Woody Allen as “probably the greatest film artist ... since the invention of the motion picture camera,” Bergman first gained international attention with 1955’s “Smiles of a Summer Night,” a romantic comedy that inspired the Stephen Sondheim musical “A Little Night Music.”
The other actor most closely associated with Bergman was Max von Sydow, who appeared in 1957’s “The Seventh Seal,” an allegorical tale of the Black Plague years as a knight playing chess with the shrouded figure of Death, one of cinema’s most famous scenes.
Rest In Peace, Mr. Bergman
The Seventh Seal
Tom Snyder Dies
Talk show host Tom Snyder, whose smoke-filled interviews and robust laughter were a staple of late night television, has died after a struggle with leukemia. He was 71.
Snyder died Sunday in San Francisco from complications associated with leukemia.
Known for his improvised, casual style, Snyder conducted a number of memorable interviews as host of NBC's "The Tomorrow Show." Among his guests were John Lennon, Charles Manson and Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols.
His catch phrase for the show was: "Fire up a colortini, sit back, relax, and watch the pictures, now, as they fly through the air." Snyder smoked throughout his show, the cigarette cloud swirling around him during interviews.
Rest In Peace Tom.
Bill Walsh Dies
Bill Walsh, the groundbreaking football coach who won three Super Bowls and perfected the ingenious schemes that became known as the West Coast offense during a Hall of Fame career with the San Francisco 49ers, has died. He was 75.
Walsh died at his Bay Area home early Monday following a long battle with leukemia.
The soft-spoken native Californian also produced a legion of coaching disciples that's still growing today. Many of his former assistants went on to lead their own teams, handing down Walsh's methods and schemes to dozens more coaches in a tree with innumerable branches.
Walsh went 102-63-1 with the 49ers, winning 10 of his 14 postseason games along with six division titles. He was named the NFL's coach of the year in 1981 and 1984.
Few men did more to shape the look of football into the 21st century. His cerebral nature and often-brilliant stratagems earned him the nickname "The Genius" well before his election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993.
Rest in Peace, Bill.
Hillary Clinton's MrsSatan's Letters
The New York Times published a story about John Peavoy, an English Professor at Scripps College located in Claremont, California. His claim to fame - and I don't mean that in a bad way because he seems like a nice enough fellow - is that he and
Peavoy says they lost touch with each other shortly after graduating from college, except for a 30-year reunion of "the Maine South class of '65." The most telling part of the entire story is this paragraph:
In the late 1990s, Peavoy was contacted by the author Gail Sheehy, who was researching a book on the First Lady. He agreed to to let Sheehy see the letters, from which she would quote snippets in her 1999 biography, "Hillary's Choice". When Clinton heard that Peavoy had kept her old letters, she wrote him asking for copies, which he obliged. He has not heard from her since.
One doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why she wanted copies of the letters. Just in case she had written something 40 years ago that could return to haunt her or be a thorn in her side, MrsSatan needed copies of those letters so that her staff could immediately being rewriting her political history. Certainly the "smartest woman ever" couldn't have her letters surface from way back and negatively affect her political ambitions.
In April 1967 MrsSatan writes:
"Since Xmas [sic] vacation, I've gone through three and a half metamorphoses and am beginning to feel as though there is a smorgasbord of personalities spread before me. So far, I've used alienated academic, involved pseudo-hippie, educational and social reformer and one-half of withdrawn simplicity."
It is interesting to note that she admits to a smorgasbord of personalities. In other words, she's is whatever and whomever her audience wants her to be - for that specific moment in time. In common lingo, this is referred as being a phony, a charlatan, an impostor.
It is unclear from the story if the following is from the same April, 1967 letter or a different letter from that same month and year where MrsSatan writes:
"Can you be a misanthrope and still love or enjoy some individuals? How about a compassionate misanthrope?"
The letters also reflect MrsSatan's membership in the Young Republican Party and that she shared her father's conservative political ideology. Why, back then, she probably was more of a "Reich winger" than Joe Lieberman is today.
She has 15 months remaining to spin and rewrite her history and none of the toady, water-carrying press or journalists will compel her to answer any serious questions about her past. It's not enough that our country and the world was saddled with eight years of her disingenuous, deceitful and duplicitous husband. We're expected to suffer through four, if not eight, years of her running the country.

Liberals Exemplify Unbound Hypocrisy
Or: Dems Continue Being Haters
Liberal activists are stepping up their campaign against Fox News Channel by pressuring advertisers not to patronize the network.
MoveOn, the Campaign for America's Future and liberal blogs like DailyKos are asking thousands of supporters to monitor who is advertising on the network. Once a database is gathered, an organized phone-calling campaign will begin, said Jim Gilliam, vice president of media strategy for Brave New Films, a company that has made anti-Fox videos.
The groups have successfully pressured Democratic presidential candidates not to appear at any debate sponsored by Fox, and are also trying to get Home Depot Inc. to stop advertising there.
Groups like the Sierra Club have targeted Home Depot because they believe it's inconsistent for the company to promote environmentally friendly products while advertising on a network that has questioned global warming.
The groups seem particularly angry at Fox's Bill O'Reilly, who has done critical reports on left-wing bloggers. On July 16, O'Reilly said the DailyKos.com Web site is "hate of the worst order."
DU commenters celebrated Ronald Reagan dying.
The Huffington Post had to SCRUB its site from the vile comments who celebrated Gerald Ford's death.
Liberal blogs rejoiced in Jerry Falwell's death.
These people are sick, demented, diseased and - to say the least - uncivil.
Oh, but the rest of us are expected to mourn along with them when Liberal Trash like Molly Ivins took the final dirt nap. We're supposed to be respectful when Socialists like Paul Wellstone's plane crashes. GFR, GFR!
LadyBird Johnson recently died - well, I'm not going to rip on her (her husband was a lump of feces) - but it is only too obvious that no Liberal bothered to mention that the Johnson family got rich from awarding government contracts during Vietnam to HALLIBURTON and BROWN and ROOT - both companies of which the Johnson family OWNED (still owns?) HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE amounts of stock in.
If Bill O'Reilly wasn't right on the money with his statement, it wouldn't have provoked such an outcry from the LiberTard Left.
Do you know how to tell when you've told the truth about Liberals? It's when they cry and whine the loudest. The truth hurts, doesn't it, LeftTards?

Tim Johnson, Incapacitated Senator
Able To Raise Campaign Money
Ailing Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota has raised more this year than he did during the same period six years ago, even though he hasn't set foot in the Senate since suffering a life-threatening brain hemorrhage in December.
Johnson, a Democrat who is up for re-election next year, has been recovering in the hospital and at home since Dec. 13. It is still unclear when he will return to the Senate and whether he will run for re-election.
But his Senate colleagues have cleared his way by holding multiple fundraisers, ultimately raising $1.3 million for him this year. That's about $300,000 more than he raised in the first six months of 2001, the year before his last election.
Of course the sycophant Liberals - a day after his surgery - claimed his "recovery is smooth."
His wife claims "he's making big progress"... despite lingering stroke-like speech and physical impairments that are improving bit by bit.
If he's doing that well, then bring him out in public instead of keeping him holed up like Blanche Hudson. Let's see him march in a parade or play a game of one-on-one.
Too ill to do his job but well enough for fundraising? Well, we do all know that Democrats - when they're not worshipping at the Altar of Abortion - are found worshipping at the Altar of Money. "Praise Jeebus, the man can't do his job but he can raise campaign money. Hallelujah! It's a miracle!"
If this man can't do his job after seven months of rehab - well... - go have a chat with a physician who is familiar with this type of brain injury and learn how good the chances are for a recovery that will enable Johnson to resume his job duties.
Democrats would keep a corpse in office if it meant holding onto their majority.

Another Clinton White House On The Way
Regular readers know that I rarely make any predictions about the future. However, there is little doubt that the next occupant of the White House will be
It will be a hellish four years for the United States and our allies while MrsSatan sits her vast and wide butt in the Oral Office. We'll see a return to Socialism like no free country has ever experienced. The ideas of a free market, our personal lives without Big Government influence and market-competitive corporations will be simply a memory.
The uber-Liberal Fringe out there - the ones I affectionately call the Insane Liberal Clown Posse - who foolishly believe that Osama Hussein Obama, John "Sissy" Edwards, Dennis "Elf" Kucinich or any other current Democrat candidate have a chance at winning the nomination are spitting in the wind. Despite her high negatives, nothing is going to stop this power-mad woman from ruling our country from January 2009 to 2013.
Liberals who foolishly believe MrsSatan will have Obama or Edwards as her Vice President are deluded, existing in a pretend world so removed from reality that rational individuals are unable to fathom their mindset. MrsSatan will not tolerate a strong or contrarian VP, she will want - and will get - a weak VP; someone who will be a "yes man" who poses no threat to her. Someone like Bill Richardson, which is why he is currently in the race - for the name recognition factor and nothing else, for surely Richardson does not believe he has a snowball's chance in Hell to actually win the Democrat Candidacy, let alone the White House.
We all know from Bubba's two terms what happens to those who are not "yes men". They end up like Vince Foster committing "suicide" and Ron Brown "dying" in an airplane crash. It's funny that the diseased Liberal Conspiracy-laden brains out there will cook up every type of cover-up or conspiracy imaginable when it comes to Conservatives and Republicans, yet they fully accept - like the good little Liberal Sheeple they are - and never question what is told to them about the deaths of Mr. Foster and Mr. Brown. Cognitive dissonance is something Liberals never have to worry about.
The only counterbalance to her presidency will be if voters return Republicans to a large enough majority in Congress in the '08 election who will offset her Marxist mentality. But the Clinton Crime Family and the Clinton War Machine will rig Congressional elections to usher in fellow Democrat candidates that have been pre-screened by the CCF and CWM who will unanimously, ardently and blindly support her policies.
All of this will be okay though. The country and world suffered for eight years of Bubba and his crooked, corrupt and unscrupulous administration. We should be able to endure eight years of MrsSatan.
I'd like to think that almost any Republican presidential candidate could beat her. And perhaps in a fair and unrigged election that could happen in '08.
So folks, are you ready for a return to the era of Jimmy Carter's one-term presidency? One of high taxes, astronomical interest and mortgage rates and Big Government? Are you ready for the oppressive political landscape we'll have for eight years under the dictatorship of MrsSatan? Unfortunately, there's not any doubt in my mind who will be our next president.

Judge Denies Fat Man Of Foster Parenting
A Missouri man said he's upset a judge took away a foster son because he is obese.
Gary Stocklaufer weighs 500 pounds. He said a family court judge ruled this week that he wasn't fit enough to be an adoptive father.
"It's out-and-out discrimination," Stocklaufer said.
Stocklaufer is a state-certified foster parent. He and his wife, Cynthia, had taken in baby Max from a cousin who couldn't raise him. The couple also has an adopted son named Bobby.
Stocklaufer said he and his wife wanted to formally adopt Max, so they went to family court and expected quick approval.
They didn't get it.
"We had Max for three months. He was taken away around the 13th of last month," Stocklaufer said. "He means the world to us, and our world has been taken out from underneath of us."
Stocklaufer said his weight should remain immaterial to his being an adoptive father.
"I mean, if I'm able to be a licensed foster care parent and we've had lots of kids in this home, then why would I not be able to adopt my own cousin?" Stocklaufer said. "We tried to follow all the legal steps, not knowing my weight would ever be an issue."
The ruling has shaken the couple's faith in the state's system.
"We're hurt, sad, frustrated," Cynthia Stocklaufer said. "We've tried to raise our child to believe the justice system will work for you."
"We understand they're out for the best interest of the child, but the state should not have this kind of authority," Stocklaufer said.
Coincidentally, the judge who ruled Stocklaufer unfit is the same judge who allowed the adoption of Bobby seven years ago.
"Under Missouri law, the court is required to consider the welfare and best interests of the child when determining whether or not an adoption should be approved, which is a complicated determination ... Factors to be considered include the petitioner's educational, financial, marital, medical and psychological status and criminal background check."
Let's apply Liberal Logic (if there is such a thing) to this case:
1) "It's For The Children": What is most important is the welfare of the children, right? This is what Libs tell us all the time. This is what they've told us for decades.
2) What if the morbidly obese trucker trips and falls on the child? If the trucker is rendered unconscious by the fall, the child could indeed die.
3) Many of us - including myself - have been overweight at times and then increased our exercise and decreased our diet and lost the weight. I'm not ripping on or talking about those of us who - from time to time - put on a "few" extra pounds. But it is safe to say that weighing in at 500 pounds does fit the definition of being morbidly obese. National Institutes of Health:
The term morbid obesity refers to patients who are 50 - 100% -- or 100 pounds above -- their ideal body weight. Alternatively, a BMI (body mass index) value greater than 39 may be used to diagnose morbid obesity.
What if a morbidly obese foster parent got the munchies and decided to deep fry the children and eat them?
Why should being morbidly obese be any different? After all, "it's for the children."

Robert Byrd Can't Purge The KKK Urge
West Virginia U.S. Senator Robert Byrd just can't purge the urge to kill African Americans.
Last week, Byrd said he wouldn't mind seeing Michael Vick executed for the alleged dog fighting accusation.
The former Klan member also said that Hell is reserved for people like Vick:
"The immortal Dante tells us the divine justice reserves special places in Hell for certain categories of sinners. Madam president, I am confident -- madam president, I am confident that the hottest places in Hell are reserved for the souls of sick and brutal people who hold God's creatures in such brutal and cruel contempt! I yield the floor."
I do not condone in any way, shape or form dog fighting. But really...Byrd is the proverbial kettle calling the pot black.
Byrd - if you were not aware of it - used to be a member of the Ku Klux Klan where he held the title of both Kleagle (recruiter) and Exalted Cyclops. And it is interesting to also note that Byrd, who at the time was in his mid-twenties, did not serve in World War II. He did find time to join the KKK during that same time period. Amazing, what a guy!
Among many of this doddering and dementia-ridden old man's quotes, are the following:
"The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia. It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state in the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan realm of W. Va."
"I will never submit to fight beneath that banner with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."
"There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."
While dog fighting is something that should be unequivocally be deplored by everyone, I don't personally think this is an issue that needs to be addressed by a Senator, let alone one that used to be a proud member of the Klan.
Hard to purge the urge to lynch, eh Bobby? Only a Liberal could be a KKK member who later runs and wins a Senate seat.
Racists can't be Democrats, but Democrats sure can be racists.
Well, you know what they say: Those Good Olde Fashioned Democrat Family Values!
Revisit Bobby Byrd's Klansman Anthem.

Dems Cheer For and Support Terrorists...Again!
Via The New York Daily News:
[Members] of Congress met in conference to finalize provisions of the 9/11 security bill, which implements the final recommendations of the 9/11 Commission. But as of press time, the Democratic majority was using a technicality to block the so-called John Doe amendment from being included in the bill.
The amendment, which protects citizen whistleblowers who report suspicious activity from being sued, was sponsored by Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) after six imams who were removed from a U.S. Airways flight in November filed a lawsuit against the passengers who reported their behavior to flight crews.
Their lawsuit charges that the imams were victims of an "intentional" and "malicious" . . . "conspiracy to discriminate" and seeks compensatory and punitive damages from the airline and "John Doe" passengers - including an elderly couple who, according to legal papers, "purposely turned around to watch them" in the boarding area and then "made a cellular phone call."
The John Doe legislation, called the Protecting Americans Fighting Terrorism Act, passed in the House in April with overwhelming bipartisan support, by a vote of 304-121 - including 105 Democrats. Now, King wants to include it in the 9/11 security legislation as a stand-alone measure to assure its passage apart from the larger bill. It is up to the majority leadership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, whether they will allow the provision to be added to the bill. Reached by telephone yesterday, a senior Pelosi staffer refused several times to say whether Pelosi supports the John Doe legislation in principle.
Why? What could prevent any member of Congress from supporting no-brainer, bipartisan legislation that protects Good Samaritans from frivolous lawsuits? One possible motive: According to key Democrat leaders, John Doe protection will encourage "racial profiling."
We disarm ourselves when we succumb to political correctness - which encourages us to second guess our common sense and look the other way. It is an outrage that Pelosi and Reid would allow individuals to be punished when they come forward to protect us all.
At least for now, the Democrats have killed Rep. Pete King's amendment which would have provided protection from being sued for people who report suspicious behavior — like the Flying Imams' simulated hijacking — in national security cases.
The Democrats' maneuver here is also an obnoxious assertion of state power over the individual: If the state subpoenas you for information, you are compelled to provide it to the authorities whether you want to or not; but if you want to provide it voluntarily in order to protect your community, the Democrats say, "prepare to be sued."
Clearly the Dems are siding, once again, with the terrorists. Clearly the Dems are attempting to suppress the Free Speech of passengers in reporting suspicious behavior or activities before a flight.
The next time any Dem - politician or Liberal friend - tells you they are "tough on terrorism" you will know they are lying and you should laugh in their face at them.
Got Terrorist? Thank a Democrat!

Chilean Sea Bass Confronts Al Gore, Jr.
****Albert Gore, Junior ************** Chilean Sea Bass
Background: Al Gore served a threatened species of Chilean Sea Bass at a recent wedding reception for his daughter.
Chilean Sea Bass: Psssst. Hey, hey Al Gore. Hey! My family is missing and then I read where you served Chilean Sea Bass at your daughter's wedding reception.
Al Gore: Uh, yes, we served Chilean Sea Bass at my daughter's wedding dinner.
Chilean Sea Bass: Yeah, and my family was among them. You served and ate my family! What kind of a sick and hypocritical bastard relentlessly preaches about taking care of the environment and then serves as dinner a threatened species and eats my family?
Al Gore: Well...uhhhhhh...
Chilean Sea Bass: What do you have to say for yourself?
Al Gore: Global Warming made me do it?
Chilean Sea Bass: What?
Al Gore: I mean, global warming made me do it!
Chilean Sea Bass: Whoa...it's getting deep in here, better get my hip-waders.
Al Gore: I purchased Chilean Sea Bass offsets.
Chilean Sea Bass: What?
Al Gore: Yeah, that's it - I had purchased Chilean Sea Bass offsets.
Chilean Sea Bass: There's no such thing!
Al Gore: Ummm, sure there is. I own stock in a company that purchases offsets for Chilean Sea Bass...yeah, that's it. It's the same company that sells me my carbon offsets.

Saturday is President Richard Cheney Day
Vice President Dick Cheney will serve as acting president briefly Saturday while President Bush is anesthetized for a routine colonoscopy, White House spokesman Tony Snow said Friday.
Bush is scheduled to have the medical procedure, expected to take about 2 1/2 hours, at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, Snow said.
comment # 131- "two and a half hours of pure, concentrated evil."
"During my brief time as President, I'm considering - among other things - selling the entire United States to Halliburton," said Vice President Dick Cheney. .
Obama: Genocide Not A Big Deal
Obama said. ABC News:
"Well, look, if that's the criteria by which we are making decisions on the deployment of U.S. forces, then by that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the Congo right now where millions have been slaughtered as a consequence of ethnic strife which we haven't done," Obama said in an interview with The Associated Press.
"We would be deploying unilaterally and occupying the Sudan, which we haven't done. Those of us who care about Darfur don't think it would be a good idea," he said.

Kerry Says No Bloodbath In Vietnam
John Kerry chose his words wisely again, as he always does. On C-SPAN, Kerry said:
There was not a massive bloodbath in Vietnam. There were reeducation camps, and they weren't pretty and, you know, nobody, you know, likes that kind of outcome. But on the other hand, I've met lot of people today who were in those education camps, who are thriving in the Vietnam of today.
Meanwhile, the regime had already started setting up its “re-education camps" and new economic areas,”
Thousands of urban Vietnamese families have been forced to sell their homes and start over again in new economic areas ere even the basic necessities are lacking. (Hence corruption, once thought of as a Thieu trademark, is flourishing: a new mandarin class has emerged ready to sell anything from a place in a fertile new economic area to a visa to France
In all, some 300,000 people are being detained in re-education camps which are in no way similar to the show camps set up for the benefit of visiting dignitaries an foreign reporters. (The Washington Post story of February 15 was based on a visit to such a show camp.)
One out every three Saigon families has a member in one of the camps, according to French journalist Jean Lacouture, who made an automobile trip from Hanoi to Saigon in 1976. After a visit to a new economic area for former Saigon near Phan-Thiet, Lacouture wrote that it was “a prefabricated hell and a place one comes to only if the alternative to it would be death."
One only needs to search via Google "Vietnam bloodbath" or "re-education camps" to get accounts of - oh, more realistic and factual than Kerry's rose-colored version.
"It depends on what the meaning of the word 'bloodbath' is."
We are so lucky this man is not the president.

I'm sorry for the mental images that your mind may force upon you when reading the headline. It's not really my headline as the MSM is noting
[There] was cleavage on display Wednesday afternoon on C-SPAN2. It belonged to Sen. Hillary Clinton.
She was talking on the Senate floor about the burdensome cost of higher education. She was wearing a rose-colored blazer over a black top. The neckline sat low on her chest and had a subtle V-shape. The cleavage registered after only a quick glance. No scrunch-faced scrutiny was necessary. There wasn't an unseemly amount of cleavage showing, but there it was. Undeniable.
Hillary + Cleavage = (press the play button, you know you want to):

Dems Supporting Flying Imams
Democrats are trying to pull a provision from a homeland security bill that will protect the public from being sued for reporting suspicious behavior that may lead to a terrorist attack, according to House Republican leadership aides.
Rep. Pete King, New York Republican and ranking member of the House Homeland Security Committee, and Rep. Steve Pearce, New Mexico Republican, sponsored the bill after a group of Muslim imams filed a lawsuit against U.S. Airways and unknown or “John Doe” passengers after they were removed for suspicious behavior aboard Flight 300 from Minneapolis to Phoenix on Nov. 20 before their removal.
“Democrats are trying to find any technical excuse to keep immunity out of the language of the bill to protect citizens, who in good faith, report suspicious activity to police or law enforcement,” Mr. King said in an interview last night.
“This is a slap in the face of good citizens who do their patriotic duty and come forward, and it caves in to radical Islamists,” Mr. King said.
“I don't see how you can have a homeland security bill without protecting people who come forward to report suspicious activity,” Mr. King said.
House Republican Whip Roy Blunt (Mo.) issued the following statement. PR Newswire:
National security in a post-9/11 world requires the constant vigilance of the American people, and the courage to stand up and report activity they deem to be unusual or suspicious. That Democrats in the House and Senate would seek to strip a provision protecting Americans from being sued for discharging these important duties is deeply troubling -- and is something Republicans in the House will not abide."

Nahoul The Killer Bee
Replaces Martyred Farfour Mouse
Al Aqsa television station, run by the militant group Hamas, has come up with another controversial character for its young Palestinian viewers.
First the station brought us Farfour, the Mickey Mouse look-alike character who espoused Islamic domination and martyrdom. The character received widespread international coverage — most of it negative.
Now comes Nahoul the bee, a different animal carrying the same message of Islamic extremism and self-sacrifice.
"I want to continue in the path of Farfour, the path of Islam, of heroism, of martyrdom and of the mujahedeen. … We will take revenge of the enemies of Allah," the bee says.
It's likely Nahoul, already being called the "killer bee" by some, will attract the same level of outrage in Israel and the international community. It's not clear whether the little bee will receive the same fate as its bigger and furrier predecessor.
The "late" Farfour circa 2007 and Nahoul The Bee
Hmmmmmmm...it is "likely" Nahoul will receive the same amount outrage in Israel and the international community? Ya think?
Does it matter whether it's a mouse or bee calling for the death of Jews - or anyone - instead of the message being sent rather than the physical representation of the hatred? But then the program may not appeal to little and young children. Children of say... terrorists, because just like Roise O'Donnell told us, terrorists are parents too. Nahoul must be preaching the good, 'love thy neighbor part' of Islam to the children.
Farfour became a martyr, recently. His obituary is here.
