Happy New Year
Some, time zones not so much, yet.
Others will ring it in an hour before those of us in the central time zone.
Or an hour later for those in the Rocky Mtn time zone.
And those out west are playing "catch-up" with the rest of us.
Well, no matter when or how you are celebrating it, Happy New Year To All.
Dawn Of The Caucus
The 2007 LPOS Award
Regular readers may be familiar with my acronym, LPOS , for Liberal Piece (Pieces when used in plural form) of Shit when referring to the Extreme Hardcore Insane Lefty Liberals.
LPOS can be spoken and pronounced by saying each of its individual letters: "L-P-O-S", although the preferred pronunciation is saying it as one full actual word: "EL-POSS" with a short vowel sound over the "O".
The criteria and qualifications are most stringent in deciding who is eligible and ultimately selected for this great, prestigious and distinctive honour.
This is no casual list of Liberal Lunatics, not by a long shot.
Each of these LPOS has shown themselves to be extremely hypocritical. They apply a set of standards to others that they do not apply to themselves or other Extreme Hardcore Insane Lefty Liberals.
They are a myopically selfish group of individuals who subjectively and selectively judge those that do not fully agree with their own philosophies and ideologies.
Their mission of anything politic is motivated by only one thing: Furthering The Liberal Agenda.
Each of these LPOS demonstrates an unequalled and egregious knack for their prejudiced and intolerant political partisanship far exceeding the level of your Average Run-Of-The-Mill Liberal.
Each of these LPOS sets a new standard, possessing an amazing ability to deny both truth and facts, blazing a new trail in setting the bar higher for Liberals who follow them, making it harder and harder to define the Edge of Extreme Liberalism.
Eleven are nominated, only one wins the world's most prestigious award in unmitigated Liberalism.
The nominees - and ultimate winner of the LPOS Award for 2007 - are below:
11: Nanny Pelosi - New Democrat Speakeress of the U.S. House of Representatives, nominated for several reasons including a false promise to eliminate earmarks, for her anti-war rhetoric, for advancing appeasement of terrorists, for her meeting with Syrian leader Bashar-al Assad, for capitulating to the tradition of wearing a head-scarf supportive of subservience of women in Arabic culture.
But nominated mostly for her witless and pandering phrase when she said, "maybe it will take a woman to clean up the House." Nanny, we can't help wonder to which woman you were referring, it obviously was not yourself.
10: Harry Reid, U.S. Senator; Nevada
Where to start with Harry? He is nominated for such making such outrageous statements as blaming "global warming causing the California fires," and then denying he said what he said. For his egregious tap dancing on the issue of abortion. For his constant yet impotent attempts to defund the Military. For calling Vice President Dick Cheney "an attack dog." Awwwww, poor Harry - he can dish it out, but not take it? So sad, Harry, so damn sad.
And especially for Harry recently admitting, "the surge certainly hasn't hurt. It's helped. I recognize that."
9: Dan Rather, former CBS News anchor, for his bitter and hypocritical lawsuit against his former employer CBS. Dan lied, nobody died (that we know of) - but he blames others and wants their cash for his own miserable failures at journalism, specifically, his fake story on President George W. Bush's service in the National Guard. Now that's a Liberal Piece of Shit by any definition. Dan is a victim...a victim of his own amateur idiocy.
8: Barry Manilow, singer - for refusing to appear on "The View", saying, "[Elisabeth Hasselbeck] is dangerous. I will not be on the same stage as her." That's funny, because he appeared on "The View" two previous times when Ms. Hasselbeck was present. Third time must be the charm, eh Mandy...I mean, Barry.
7: Cluck Schumer DemocRAT, U.S. Senator; New York - nominated for his amazing ability to be first in front of any camera and microphone to pontificate and hype any politically biased ideology, yet he goes into seclusion and cannot be found to comment about what earlier this year was the nomination and promotion from within his own Democrat party of Mike Mukasey for Attorney General.
Cluck is especially qualified for the 2007 LPOS Award for his feigning Lyme Disease - his excuse for not being available to the press on Mukasey - using Lyme Disease as an excuse to miss an important vote on funding the Military. But shortly after that vote, Cluck summoning the energy and stamina to make several PR appearances for plastic foam factories, doctor shortages and "Criss-crossing the state" for Veterans Benefits. Apparently, whatever ill effect Cluck had from Lyme Disease was short-lived, brief enough only to keep him from a Senate vote and appearing before the cameras and microphones.
Most recently, Cluck is lobbying against steroid use in MLB, working hard to prevent access to HGH - Human Growth Hormones.
Finally, Cluck is nominated for being a chicken. When speaking, his head moved forward and back, just like a chicken pecking at its food. He's looks and acts just like a chicken, just like one; hence his name, Cluck Schumer.
6: Keith Olberwiener, former sports caster turned idiot Uber-Liberal Talking Head - Liberal Wiener Extraordinaire, full of flatulence and wicked, foul gas who emits the same in every whining tirade on his program. For yeoman efforts in not applying the same standard to Liberals that he applies to Conservatives. For an amazing display of being able to make what he said the day before trite and unimportant by every day making new statements that lack any factual basis and contain only his personal and subjective venomous political bias. Plus - and this is the most important reason - he's a wiener; a tiny cocktail wiener - and that's what he will remain, forever and forever.
5: Congressman John Murtha, DemocRAT Congressman, Pennsylvania - nominated for being named one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress by CREW - the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. For steering Military Contracts to his brother "Kit" Murtha, for being the King of Pork in allocating Pork Money to his district. For being named by CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, as "one of the most unethical members in Congress."
4: John Edwards, former U.S. Senator North Carolina and Sissy - nominated for saying that war is a "bumper sticker mentality", for saying he is "uncomfortable around [gay) people." For sending his cancer-stricken wife out of fight his battles with Ann Coulter and the MoveOn Morons. For his advocating, in a Walter Mondale-esque presidential bid of a way, of higher taxes for everybody.
For wanting to take away your SUV and large scale home while he lives the Life of
For verbally stumbling around for 12 seconds in a desperate attempt to answer the question of "Who is [his] moral leader." His ultimate answer was, "the Lord," but we all know the real answer is any other trial lawyer.
3: A Tag Team Counting As One: Ex-Worst.President.Ever Jimmy Carter and his National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski for their botched plan of providing aid to the Mujahadeen in 1979, thereby setting the stage, giving aide and comfort and initiating the incubation and mutation of Islamo-fascism threat that the world fights today.
2: Albert Gore, Junior, Ex Vice President and crybaby - nominated for his unbound hypocrisy in preaching a global warming platform while raking up an absurdly high amount of jet-setting miles in his private Gulfstreams, gas-guzzling SUV motorcades and his many residences that require more energy and burn more fossil fuels than 99% of the rest of the population.
For his steadfast refusal to debate anyone who challenges him in intelligently discussing the pros and cons of so-called man-made global warming.
ManBearPig must be stopped!
1: Hillary Clinton, U.S. Senator, New York; presidential candidate; Yankees fan of which she claims she's always been.
And the Winner of the 2007 MrsSatan Liberal Piece of Shit Award is...
... John Murtha, U.S. Congressman from Pennsylvania. His list of offenses is many, a few of them being "I KNOW there is a [Haditha] cover-up." "We're trying to force a redeployment not by taking money away, by redirecting money."
Mr. Murtha has gone above and beyond the call of duty in his unwavering support of Liberalism at the expense and detriment of U.S. Troops and Soldiers. A running list of his transgressions are located HERE.
Murtha, though, cinched the Award with his cowardly escape into an elevator when asked if he will apologize to the Marines that he called "murderers" whose names were cleared in what the Left erroneously - and for nothing but political gain - called the "Haditha massacre":
Nothing mattered to Murtha except furthering the cause of rank Liberalism. Instead, he became through his actions the Mike Nifong of Washington D.C., refusing to reserve judgment until the Marines had their day in court.
He refused to defend and even reserve judgment of the Marines.
John Murtha, you are the proud recipient of the 2007 Liberal Piece Of Shit Award:
LPOS Honorable Mentions:
All Liberal Talking Heads appearing on the AirHead America and Jones Radio Networks, but especially Randi Rhodes, Jon Elliot and Ed Schultz:
Liberal Talker Ratty Rhodes - for apparently falling down drunk and injuring herself (aka "passing out") after downing fourteen Bloody Marys and allowing the story - ...
... - perpetuated by fellow Liberal Talking Head Jon "Kitty Stay on my head" Elliot - that she was "attacked by Republican thugs" to take root before setting the record straight; well, as straight as a liar like Ratty and Elliot could concoct. They manufactured hatred and rage before the facts were in. Typical, Typical LPOS.
Ed Schultz (left), John Wayne Gacy as Clown (right)
Ed Schultz...is it just me, or does Ed look exactly like Democrat John Wayne Gacy dressed as a clown?
Fred Phelps - so-called "religious leader" of the Westboro Baptist
Dennis "The Elf" Kucinich, Democrat Presidential candidate - for being Mister UFO Man. The Jerry Moonbeam Brown of this era. Could Kookcinich be the offspring of a Roswell, New Mexico alien couple? Only DNA testing can prove or disprove this theory.
Neil G. Giuliano, President of The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation - for making a big deal for Jerry Lewis to apologize for using the word "faggot" during Lewis' Muscular Dystrophy Labor Day Telethon while Giuliano remains obviously and dutifully silent in any criticism of John Edwards' statement of "not being comfortable around [gay] people."
Bob Filner - California Democrat U.S. Representative for shoving his way through the baggage claim at the Dulles International Airport. He'd be the winner if this contest was the "Cynthia McKinney Award."
Mike Gravel, Democrat presidential candidate - for saying Americans are "Fat And Dumb", and for saying "the Spartans trained their people to be homosexual." Not only does the American public enjoy being "talked down" to, we enjoy historical and scientific revisionism and would like to hear how the Spartans - let alone any other civilizations - "train their people to be homosexual." Mike Gravel, you are an idiot.
U.S. Senator from Minnesota Amy Klobuchar for her "Cell phone Bill of Rights." Like Gravel, Klobuchar thinks Americans are too dumb, so she appeals to the lowest common denominator of the population for her own political advantage. Perhaps some day, should the Democrat Party care to revive a Walter Mondale-Geraldine Ferraro type President/Vice President ticket, Klobuchar can be the VP to Mike Gravel's Presidential run for a new political party named: "Americans Are Fat and Dumb and Don't Know How to Select A Cell Phone."
Sally Field, actress - for her Emmy speech, saying, "if the mothers ruled the world, there would be no goddamn wars in the first place." I guess she conveniently forgets and omits the mothers who drown their children in a bathtub and who kill their children by driving cars into a lake.
Eliar Parisan, MoveOn Goon and the creator of the General Betrayus advertisement. Why isn't Eliar serving in the Military? Heh - Don't make me laugh.
Rosie O'Moo - obese, loud and ignorant entertainer for dressing her young daughter as a suicide homicide bomber, complete with bandoleer and sad-sack expression. Everything Donald Trump has said about O'Moo is painfully accurate and true.

One Hit News
Pakistani former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto has been assassinated in a suicide attack.
Ms Bhutto - the first woman PM in an Islamic state - was leaving an election rally in Rawalpindi when a gunman shot her in the neck and set off a bomb.
At least 20 other people died in the attack and several more were injured.
Ms Bhutto's main political rival, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, also condemned the assassination and blamed President Pervez Musharraf for an attack on a rally earlier today in which four of his supporters were killed and around 12 injured in Islamabad.
He also announced that his party would boycott the elections due next month.
"Free elections are not possible in the presence of Musharraf," he said.
UK's Prime Minister Gordon Brown calls Bhutto's killers,"cowards afraid of democracy". BBC

With just one week to go before the Iowa caucuses, the Democratic presidential candidates are focusing on the Hawkeye state, working to clearly define the choices they are offering.
The Republican candidates, on the other hand, continue to keep their eyes on New Hampshire and the other early voting states that will quickly follow Iowa's January 3 caucuses.

Food Safety Authority inspectors apparently uncovered an illegal halal butchery operation on a surprise visit to a farm in Østfold County on Thursday afternoon. Aftenposten:
The Muslim practice of halal, where the animal is not anesthetized before killing, and is bled to death by having its carotid artery cut, is illegal in Norway, for violation of animal treatment laws.
"This is a severe violation of the Animal Protection Act and it will be viewed very seriously," said Kirsti Ullsfoss, FSA district chief for the region.
Ullsfoss said that this is the first time an illegal butcher has been caught red-handed.
Events of 2007 may or may not influence Danish language. The Copenhagen Post
From 'love cards' to 'a downer of a surprise' and 'grups' to 'bvs' the past year has added a number of new terms and phrases to Denmark's linguistic legacy.
Each December, the Danish Language Council publishes a list of words that came into wide-spread use in the previous 12 months. Typically the list includes words that enjoyed cultural, societal and political, as well as everyday life significance throughout the year.
Some phrases and words took on a wholly different meaning from its original definition. For example, 'lay day' (liggedag) - originally the number of days a ship was docked - was used to describe a day when a nursing home resident had to stay in bed due to lack of staff.
Phrases from the controversial Christmas TV advent calendar show, 'Yallahrup F�rgeby', such as 'one sick gangster' (ornli syg gangsta), were flashes in the pan as well.
Whether any of the words actually become part of official Danish is something that only time will tell.
'The word has to have a viable lifespan so one can reasonably say it has entered Danish vocabulary.'
Among the new words that came into wide-spread use in 2007:
- 'Drive-by gangs' (drive-by-bande)
- 'Post-holiday depression' (efterferiedepression)
- 'Love card' (same in Danish) - 12-month visa that allows partners of Danish
citizens to stay in Denmark
- 'A downer of a surprise' (Nederaskeren) - an amalgam of the Danish words for 'downer' and 'surprise'
- 'Popcorn movie' (popkornfilm) - a family movie

I want to repeat and mention some things to do for Christmas, the same things I wrote about on Veterans Day.
Make a donation to Operation Uplink, which provides pre-paid calling cards to our Troops so that they can call home.
Donate something to AnySoldier.com. Pens, writing paper, baby wipes, hand sanitizer. The link provides a list of suggested items that you can send.
If money is tight, and I can understand that it is, take a moment and at the very least send a message of Thanks and Love to our Troops.
Two of the many ways to send a message are Operation Dear Abby and Let's Say Thanks, a project sponsored by Xerox:
Send our Troops a message via Operation Dear Abby.
Send our Troops A card of thanks.
And for overall charitable donations, The Salvation Army.

The Chirstmas Song
Written in 1944 by vocalist Mel Tormé and Bob Wells. According to Tormé , the song was written during a blistering hot summer. In an effort to "stay cool by thinking cool," the most-performed (according to BMI) Christmas song was born.
"I saw a spiral pad on his piano with four lines written in pencil," Tormé recalled. "They started, `Chestnuts roasting ... Jack Frost nipping ... Yuletide carols ... Folks dressed up like Eskimos.' Bob (Wells, co-writer) didn't think he was writing a song lyric. He said he thought if he could immerse himself in winter he could cool off. Forty minutes later that song was written. I wrote all the music and some of the lyrics."

Dennis Kucinich's Stealth Edited Answers.com Page And Other Things
About Him You May Not Know
* Did you know his economic policies as Mayor of Cleveland drove the city into bankruptcy? YeppireeBob, sure did.
* Did you know he is twice-divorced and on his third marriage? This has to be a very important item because the Left says it is an important issue regarding Rudy Giuliani and his third marriage.
* Did you know that when Kookcinich wed his third wife he was 58-years old and she was only 27-years old? This has to be a very important item because the Left says so regarding the age difference between Republican Fred Thompson and his wife.
* Did you know the Kookster's "...congressional voting record has also leaned toward a pro-life stance"? But then he simply had to flip-flop on the issue in order to get support from the Insane Liberal Clown Posse.
* Did you know he has never held a "real job"? His entire life has been spent as a politician. This one is a hoot, considering it's the Far Fringe Left that always says what Washington D. C. needs less of is career politicians. The Kookster is one, long, lifetime career politician.
As a matter of fact, after getting the boot from political office, he was broke:
Without a steady paycheck, Kucinich fell behind in his mortgage payments, nearly lost his house in Cleveland, and ended up borrowing money from friends, including [actress Shirley] MacLaine, to keep it.  On his 1982 income tax return, Kucinich reported income of $38.
In the aftermath of the April 16th shooting in Blacksburg, Virginia, Kucinich is proposing a plan to address violence in America. Kucinich is currently drafting legislation that includes a ban on the purchase, sale, transfer, or possession of handguns by civilians.
The below item is a screen capture of the Dennis Kucinich Answers.com entry from December 20, 2007, noting that he carried a handgun because of an alleged plot to kill him by the "mafia":
Click HERE for large version of the above image.
However, the second paragraph is today - December 21, 2007 - nowhere to be found!
Who is stealth editing the Kucinich Answers.com page?
Why was the second paragraph excised from his Answers.com page? Does he not want his supporters to know of his rank hypocrisy?
What is he or his staff trying to hide? That he wants to do away with the Second Amendment, but when his life is threatened he can carry a concealed handgun? I think Nazi Germany started its campaign on a similar type of hypocrisy.
Who removed the second paragraph and why?
Also missing from the latest version of his Answers.com page is his support for reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine, part of which can be seen from the December 21, Answers.com image above: "Support for reinstating the Fairness Doctrine".
Someone is doing some heavy revisionism on the Dennis Kucinich Answers.com page. It reeks of a conspiracy and of a tiny little man trying to cover his tracks.
For those who may have trouble spelling his last name, "L-O-S-E-R" or "F-A-K-E" will do just fine.

Global Warming Alarmists
Face Stormy Weather
Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming.
Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.
This blockbuster Senate report lists the scientists by name, country of residence, and academic/institutional affiliation. It also features their own words, biographies, and weblinks to their peer reviewed studies and original source materials as gathered from public statements, various news outlets, and websites in 2007. This new" consensus busters" report is poised to redefine the debate.
Many of the scientists featured in this report consistently stated that numerous colleagues shared their views, but they will not speak out publicly for fear of retribution.
Former Vice President Gore has claimed that scientists skeptical of climate change are akin to a "Flat Earth society members," and similar in number to those who, "believe the moon landing was actually staged in a movie lot in Arizona."
The distinguished scientists featured in this new report are experts in diverse fields, including: climatology; oceanography; geology; biology; glaciology; biogeography; meteorology; oceanography; economics; chemistry; mathematics; environmental sciences; engineering; physics and paleoclimatology. Some of those profiled have won Nobel Prizes for their outstanding contribution to their field of expertise and many shared a portion of the UN IPCC Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Gore.
On the other side we have scientists, climatologists, geologists, biologists, meteorologists, oceanographists, chemists and others who are trained, educated and have degrees in their specific fields who disagree with Gore and the United Nations that the slight increase in temperature has nothing to do with humans and industrialized nations.
If this is such an easy slam dunk for the Man Who Would Not Be President, then why won't he debate with those who disagree with him? Why does he continue to duck their offers to debate?
If Gore can dismiss his skeptics as easily as those who believed the earth was flat or that the moon landing was faked, then why won't Gore get his fat ass up on the stage and debate his critics and make them look like the fools he claims they are?
Why won't Gore do this? What are you afraid of, Albert? Could it be he is afraid of being proven wrong? Of being proven the huckster and charlatan that he really is?

Eco Boat Powered By Human Fat
It's been replace by a human-fat fueled eco-boat. The Daily Mail:
The fastest eco-boat on the planet will attempt to break the round the world speed record using fuel made from human fat.
Pete Bethune, the New Zealand skipper of Earthrace, said the attempt to circumnavigate the globe would begin from Valencia in Spain on March 1 next year.
From the start in Valencia the boat will cross the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans and travel through the Panama and Suez Canals..
From there the boat will cross the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans as it thunders along the planet's circumference at a maximum speed of 40 knots.
Please east lots of Big Macs,
And you'll be part of our crew!
Soon will be rounding the globe next year,
We've got a big fat crew, thus no fuel fear!
The Eco Boat!
The Earthrace Fuel Crew (left to right): Michael Moore, Rob Reiner, Joy Behar, Rosie O'Donnell
Bethune detailed his itinerary:
"We leave Valencia, Spain and will easily cross the Atlantic, through the Panama Canal and the tip of Mexico powered by Moore. Then Reiner will sail us through two-thirds of the Pacific. We tap O'Donnell's massive fat reserves as we near the area north of Australia and she gets us to approximately 1,000 miles east of Africa. Then Behar propels us with ease from that point homeward. It's a cinch!"

Jingle Bell Rock - Idol Style
"Rebel Yell", "White Wedding", "Dancing With Myself" - all very good tunes. But it's Idol's version of "Hot In The City" that - I think - is fantastic. (Note the Warholian artistic influences in the "Hot In The City" video.)
The other item that I appreciate about Idol's "Jingle Bell Rock" video is the editing, so all you tech-heads listen up. Watch the editing. Technology has made video and film editing relatively easy from a physical standpoint. That's not what I'm talking about. It's the conceptualization of the editing that is often difficult - and this video is remarkable in its successful execution of editing. Or maybe I'm just too geeky when it comes to editing.
Anyway, this is Idol's version of "Jingle Bell Rock". He does a good job with it and he looks like he's having fun and a good time performing it.

John Edwards' Blinks And Lies?
Blink, Blink, Blink ...
Lie, Lie, Lie...
It's the Blinking Lying John Edwards Show!
Using rapid and repeated eye-blinking as an indicator to judge whether or not the person answering questions is being truthful or deceptive is not a speculative or amateurish science.
The following excerpt is from "Detecting Deception" - The FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin, July, 2001 by Joe Navarro, John R. Schafer:
Rapid blinking or "eyelid flutter" signals a sensitive topic.  Officers carefully should observe the speaker's eyes, which can alert to the possibility of deception.
Another supposed sign of lying is rapid blinking. It's true that when we become aroused or our mind is racing, there's a corresponding increase in our blinking rate. Our normal rate is about 20 blinks per minute, but it can increase to four or five times that figure when we feel under pressure. When liars are searching for an answer to an awkward question, their thought processes speed up. In this kind of situation, lying is frequently associated with blinking. But we need to remember that there are times when people have a high blinking rate, not because they're lying, but because they're under pressure.
Rapid blinking blocks vision and can be an arrogant signal, saying 'I am so important, I do not need to see you'.'
The most notable study of eyelid blinking and thought process was in Nixon’s infamous “I’m not a crook” speech, in which his eyelid blinking was noticeably faster than normal during certain segments, indicating to some that he was lying.
Don't believe me?
Surf YouTube for some John Edwards videos and you will find a slew of them that show him answering a question or responding to a statement while his eye lids immediately go into rapid eye blinking mode.
I did not want to insert the embeddable code into this post thereby making this page slow to load, but I did link to the below Edwards videos that support my allegation that - when answering a question - Edwards cannot stop blinking.
Is he lying? You be the judge. View the videos below of John Edwards Rapid Eye Blinking. Most of the clips are less than one minute; two clock in a bit over 2 minutes :
CNN Democratic Presidential Debate: John Edwards New Year Wish
CNN Democratic Presidential Debate: John Edwards, Positions Can Change
MSNBC Democratic Presidential Debate: John Edwards "Look your children in the eye tonight."
AFL-CIO Debate: Health Care
And this video snippet, only 42-seconds in length, where I tired to count the number of blinks Edwards made but I just couldn't get an accurate number.
Oh - and remember a couple months back when the National Enquirer ran a story about Edwards having an affair and the rest of the media ignored the story? Well, the "NE" now says Edwards has an illegitimate love child. I'm sure if this were a story about Rudy, Mitt, Huckabee or McCain the MSM would be all over it. But since it's about Edwards...we won't hear anything about it from the MSM.
But back to Edwards and his rapid, repeated eye blinking. Boy, those eye lids could create a nice breeze on hot day for someone sitting across from him, huh?
Is Santa Satan ?
Is Santa Claus really Satan?
In Santa Claus: The Great Imposter, Dr. Terry Watkins, Th.D. seems to think so:
You ever noticed [sic] how easy it is to transform "Satan" from "Santa"? Just move the "n" to the end. And presto! "Satan" appears.
Most parents would never teach their beautiful little children such a lie as Santa Claus. Most parents would never openly lie to their children. Especially something that is a blasphemous imposter of the Lord Jesus.
The Devil Is In Your Chimney;
Santa Claus and Satan's Cause:
H.P. Blavatsky, the mother of the new age movement, said on page 350 of her book, The Secret Doctrine, Vol. 2: "The name isn't important. It is the letters". "Santa" has the same letters as "Satan"!
Discuss amongst yourselves over the Christmas holiday, preferably bringing this topic up during a pause in conversation during dinner. Timing is everything, isn't it?

Lieberman Endorses McCain
Republican John McCain is having quite a moment. He's rising in the polls. He's got major newspaper endorsements in Iowa and New Hampshire. And now he's getting help with this state's legions of independent voters from Joe Lieberman, the contrarian who was Democrat Al Gore's running mate in 2000.
The decision by the Senate's best-known independent to snub the Democratic Party could help McCain win a bigger share of the tide of independent voters who have been expected to flow to the Democratic field in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary on Jan. 8.
Independents outnumber Republicans and Democrats here, and the state is key to McCain's hopes for the GOP nomination.
Sen. Joseph Lieberman said Monday his endorsement of Republican John McCain's presidential bid was not intended as payback for fellow Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd, a 2008 White House hopeful who supported Lieberman's rival during his 2006 fall re-election race.
"This honestly doesn't have anything to do with last year," Lieberman, I-Conn., said in a telephone conference call with reporters. "I think Chris and I are over that."
Lieberman said he made a "respectful decision" partly owing to wide differences with Dodd on issues like Iraq, Iran and terrorism.
"This is a decision made based on comparing John McCain to all the other candidates," he said.
A message seeking comment was left for Dodd's presidential campaign.
After losing the 2006 Democratic primary in Connecticut to political newcomer Ned Lamont largely because of his support for the Iraq war, Lieberman defied party leaders and ran as an independent in the general election to hang onto his seat.
The move rankled Democrats who questioned the senator's party loyalty. Top Democrats, including Lieberman's longtime friend Dodd, abandoned him after the primary defeat and backed Lamont.
Lieberman has said his feelings were hurt by Dodd, who campaigned for Lamont in the general election and filmed a campaign commercial with him. Since then, Lieberman and Dodd have said they are working to repair their ruptured relationship.
"I consider Chris Dodd to be my friend," Lieberman said. "We work together on a lot of matters here in Washington for Connecticut."
Okay - now this is where the fun begins. Which party has hissy fits, wets their panties and cries like a spoiled child when they don't get exactly what they want? The LiberTards, of course.
Which party, the DemocRATS or the Republicans, have been the party of late who have been preaching, shouting and screaming about working in a bipartisan manner?
So we have a moment of bipartisanship with Lieberman endorsing McCain, and how do two of the biggest crybaby Lefty blogs respond? Well, they make a messy in their diapers.
At Daily KooKs, "kos" responds by running the below photo whose image location is named "Lieberman Gropes McCain" under a post titled of "Sexy":
Over at his place, John Aravosis takes the pacifier out of his mouth long enough to write the following about Lieberman's endorsement of McCain:
Reader Dennis in Arlington alerted me that our favorite loser is going to be endorsing McCain. Big surprise. Lieberman lost his mind, and his loyalties, long ago. All that he's interested in now is starting as many wars in the Middle East as possible. And in that regard, Lieberman is right to pick McCain. No one can guarantee getting us into more wars than another Republican candidate.
I really can't wait until we get just a few more Democratic Senate seats in the next election so we can tell Lieberman to take a hike and join the Republicans where he'll be happily irrelevant working in the minority. Then see how much good he is to whomever it is he's truly loyal to.
And it gets even better and easier at showing how phony the Libs and Progs are. The below info on the two Senators is from the same site: "On The Issues". The site tracks how every politicians votes.
The site includes ratings by groups like NARAL - the National Abortion & Reproductive Rights Action League formerly knows as National Abortion Rights Action League - you know them, they're the pro-baby killers.
Another group that is cited at "On The Issues" is the NRA, the National Rifle Association noting their "rating" of how a politician votes regarding the Second Amendment.
Now...here is the kicker. Compare and contrast the voting records at "On The Issues" between:
Harry Reid, the Nevada Socialist
Lieberman's voting record is by far, far more Liberal than is Reid's voting record. Lieberman received a "100%" favorable score from
But why do the Libs and Progs have such seething hatred for Lieberman? Because he agrees on the issue of the War in Iraq and Afghanistan and Reid does not. Coincidentally, the war against terrorism is also a belief held by President George W. Bush - and the Libs and Progs are overflowing with Bush Derangement Syndrome and cannot and will not have anything to do with anyone who happens to agree that America has a right to defend itself.
So much for not being one-issue voters, hey "kos".... Aravosis? What a couple of pole-smokers.
On Friday December 14, Democrat Congressman Charlie Rangel bemoaned the fact on Liberal Pinhead Lefty Talker Ed Schultz's radio program that he (Rangel) wishes they had more of an edge of a majority vote in the Senate. Well, you Libs and Progs could have had that, but no - you all pooped on Joe Lieberman and genuflected to Ned Lamont.
Hey Ned, how do you feel about being used by the Libs, because that's all they did with you. They used you. They found a rich guy who could spend millions of his own money - as opposed to using DNC money that only goes to fund the very special candidates anointed by the Lib/Prog Politburo - who the Libs and Progs supported because he (Lamont) agreed to talk the Talking Point of being against the war. That was it...that was THE BIG ISSUE for Lamont, nothing else.
So the crybaby crowd is once again aiming their slurs and invective against Joe Lieberman. He was good enough to be the VP for the Dem Party in 2004...but now? Now Lieberman is the target of the Insane Liberal Clown Posse. I'm sure he's used to it, I'm sure Joe knows all too well what the Far Edge Left is like.
Good for you Joe, for endorsing McCain and getting the crybabies all hyperactive and dirtying their diapers again. I like anyone who makes the LiberTards scream and yell and kick their feet.
Bipartisanship? That's not what the Left wants.
Liberal Candidates? Well, that's not really what the Left wants, either. Not considering how much further to the Left Lieberman's voting record is compared to Reid. But Reid is against the war and this is the only reason Reid is supported by the likes of "kos", Aravosis and the Extreme left Wing Fringe.
No - the Left only wants candidates and supporters who are against the war. No other qualifications matter.
And you Lefties claim you're not a one-issue party. What a bunch of hooey.

"Artist" Grad Student Neal Peterson
Here is the story:
Art exhibits spark controversy at UMD
(By) Jana Hollingsworth
Duluth News Tribune - 12/14/2007
Cries of censorship were heard this week at the University of Minnesota Duluth after a graduate art student’s exhibit at the Tweed Museum of Art was shut down for a day because of explicit content.
That came on the heels of controversy over a student art club’s display case and its use of a small nude mannequin some perceived as a child.
Neal Peterson’s exhibit, “Thirteen Pieces of Paper,” is a series of images juxtaposed to raise questions about how people perceive images separately and in relation to each other. It includes four images of nudity in different contexts: a graphic sex scene from “Hustler” magazine, Michaelangelo’s Adam and Eve, an Anne Geddes photo of a nude mother with child and a Jeff Koons photograph aiming to portray pornography as art. It also includes pictures of dead pigs in a slaughterhouse, Pope John Paul II next to a dollar bill and burned bodies from the 1915 Armenian genocide.
The exhibit was covered Wednesday after a group of fifth- and sixth-grade students from AlBrook School arrived at the museum. Tweed director Ken Bloom said the content wasn’t appropriate for children and it was covered before any of them saw it.
Peterson said he was upset that his work was covered for the entire day. He planned to dismantle the exhibit Thursday but changed his mind when he found it had been uncovered. The exhibit remains open through Sunday.
“I think they weren’t expecting something of this nature and may be avoiding the issue of the work being provocative so it doesn’t look like censorship,” Peterson said.
The real issue, according to Bloom, was that Peterson misled museum employees about the exhibit.
Peterson was to show his graphic art thesis work in the museum — an exhibit on lyrical mapping — next week. He was allowed the additional week to show the “Thirteen Pieces” exhibit because employees thought it was part of his thesis and approved by the art and design department at UMD.
“If my name has to stand in front of the museum, the curator in front of the gallery … it seems we should be aware of what he is doing,” Bloom said. “If I thought it was a censorship issue, I would be the first one on the barricades screaming my head off. It is material that is definitely challenging, but that’s not the issue here.
“The process depends on trust,” Bloom said. “I had assumed it had been reviewed by faculty and it would have been appropriately presented.”
Sarah Nitschke, the chairwoman of Peterson’s thesis committee, said she didn’t see the work because it wasn’t part of his thesis. She said she had discussed the “Thirteen Pieces” project and its nature with Peterson, and she and other faculty approved the basic intention of the project. The Tweed, however, has the right to display or not display a student project, she said.
“There was a suggestion to put up an artist’s statement to further contextualize the work as an artist’s expression, and to put up clear warning signs,” Nitschke said.
Peterson met with Bloom before he installed the exhibit and told him it contained provocative content. Bloom also instructed him to display warning signs outside the exhibit and put up walls arranged to make entry to the exhibit purposeful. When he found out the exhibit wasn’t related to his thesis, Bloom told Peterson he felt he had misrepresented his work, Peterson said. Peterson disagreed.
“I’m just trying to show my art and invoke discussion,” he said. “I certainly don’t think young kids should see something like that, but it’s not my responsibility to stand at the door for an entire week.”
Bloom maintains the issue is academic and has been magnified because Peterson believes he was censored.
“It is conceivable that had it not been provocative material it would have been a minor hubbub, because then it just would have been a bureaucratic matter,” Bloom said. “If you want to make a statement, how about doing it the right way? No one has been censored.”
The Art Guild, a club that fills display cases with its work, drew ire at UMD recently because of a naked mannequin that some perceived as a child.
Visitors to a UMD blog discussed the issue, and arguments arose as to what constitutes art and whether the mannequin was even a child. One blogger saw a link between the mannequin and pedophilia.
Topher McCulloch, a member of the guild, said the display case was filled with supplies and art projects to show the club’s lack of storage space. The group added items every day for a week until it received an e-mail from the art department saying it needed to conclude the display. The guild’s protest wasn’t the most effective way to ensure the group’s future, McCulloch said they were told.
“We read that as a threat,” he said.
The group covered the display case with paper, tearing it in front of the mannequin to show a bit of the display inside, and wrote several statements, including: “beware of art” and “kids will be kids.” After that, the art department sent an e-mail to the guild saying a complaint had been received about the mannequin, McCulloch said. The display was taken down after its two reserved weeks were up.
“We were never officially censored, but the pressure felt heavy,” McCulloch said.
Messages left for art and design department Chairwoman Virginia Jenkins Wednesday and Thursday were not returned.
There is an enormous difference between allowing fifth and six grade children to view, say, Michelangelo's Adam and Eve or David, from viewing that of a sex scene out of Hustler Magazine. Neal, you're an ass and a dipshit. I suspect Neal is doing nothing more than self-promotion, perhaps doing his best to get his mug on CNN for his fifteen minutes of fame.
Neal, if you really want to be provocative and "invoke discussion", conceptualize and create a piece of art titled Prophet Mohammed in a jar of urine. Or may I suggest Dung Mohammed.
Oh - you'll invoke discussion with "art" like that. And it will be discussed and very controversial...all posthumously of you, of course.

Ten Christmas Song I Hate,
& Ten Christmas Songs I Like
Oh - and this post contains "adult" language - just thought I'd let you know. If that kind of language offends you, you probably shouldn't read this post.
Ten Worst Christmas/Holiday Songs Ever
(In My Opinion)
1) "White Christmas" - Bing Crosby. I hate all whistling in any form, and I hope Crosby is on a spit, roasting over flames in Hell for eternity. I hate this fucking song and all versions of it performed by any and all singers. But Crosby's version is the worst, the absolute worst.
2) "I Saw Three Ships" - Sting. "I hear this song, I hear this song, I hear this song over and over...It makes me puke, it makes me puke, it makes me puke three shades of blood. Sting's solo career sucks, Sting's solo career sucks, I liked him when with 'The Police.' But now he's a sell-out, now he's a sell-out, he's a sell-out without any shame. I hate this song, I hate this song, have I mentioned how I hate this song. I sucks bloody shit, it sucks bloody shit, have I mentioned it sucks bloody shit."
The only thing that could make me loathe "Three Ships" more is if it had whistling in it - which, thankfully - it doesn't. You may like this song...well, tell you what...you get it stuck in your head for two or three days and see if you don't end up hating it. It is the Christmas/holiday version equivalent of Disney's god-awful "It's A Small World (After All)". "I Saw Three Ships" makes me want to put a bullet in my head.
3) "Step Into Christmas" - Elton John. A forced attempt by John to create a "new" Christmas song. It fails on all levels; musically, lyrically and - as a video - it couldn't be more gay, and I mean gay not in the gay sense, but in the most malicious and offensive definition as possible.
4) "Wonderful Christmastime" - Paul McCartney. A chunk of odoriferous, wormy dog feces. Like John's "Step Into Christmas", this song was nothing more than a desperate attempt by McCartney to create a "new" Christmas song. The only way this song could suck more is if it were sung by Yoko Ono.
5) "All I Want For Christmas, Is You" - Mariah Carey. A sub-mediocre song by a sub-mediocre singer. Her entire career exists only because early on - getting her start - she married record mogul Tommy Mattola and let him boink her. Had she not done so, she would be asking you if you "want fries with that." This song is so unexceptionally mundane and sugary it sends the triglyceride levels of anyone who hears it into the tens-of thousands .
6) "Happy Christmas (War is Over)" - John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Lennon was a very gifted lyricist and singer. Yoko makes my ears bleed. This song was another attempt to create a "new" Christmas song. It fails on all levels, receiving far too much airplay. If an unknown singer/songwriter tried to peddle this song, it would be turned down by everyone in the music industry as a piece of shit.
7) "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy" - Bing Crosby - David Bowie duet. I think Bowie is a legend, a musical genius on all levels. Whatever possessed him to do this duet with the wretched, child-beating Crosby is beyond me. It's an awful song and hearing it almost...almost... makes me long to hear whistling.
8) "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" - Elmo and Patsy. One of my nieces liked this song when she was a little kid, I don't know how she feels about it now that she is an adult. I just hate this song, it's an instant visceral reaction on my part at pure and unadulterated hatred of a wretched song performed by a singer who is bereft of any musical talent whatsoever.
9) "Santa Baby" - by any artist except the Eartha Kitt version. Eartha Kitt is the only one who manages to pull this song off without making it sound like an aging, rode hard and hung-up-wet prostitute soliciting Santa Claus. The
10) "Last Christmas" - George Michael and Wham. Who would have guessed that the singer of this song would, later in life, be arrested for soliciting sex from men in a public toilet? A terrible song in every aspect, buying this CD or MP3 should come with garbage-size vomit bag. Raaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppph.
"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" - by any artist. I hate this song, I hate this song, I hate this song. Note to kid: That's not Santa your Mommy is kissing, it's your Dad's brother dressed as Santa.
"Little Saint Nick" - The Beach Boys. I like so much of the Beach Boys huge repository of music, but "Little Saint Nick" is a piece of reeking feces.
"All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" - by any artist. A song that would drive me to infanticide.
Any Christmas song, (and any other song for that matter), sung by Michael Bolton. His voice isn't bad, but why does he have to howl and screech, endlessly holding on to notes like a stuck pig? Sometimes less is more, but Bolton and the producers of any of his songs are afraid to try this approach.
Any Christmas song, (and any other song for that matter), sung by Manlissa Etheridge. She suffers from the same affliction as Bolton; holding on to notes for far too long, howling like a coyote whose leg is stuck in a bear trap. There is nothing special or unique about her mannish voice. She is a pauper pauper's version of the Rod Stewart growl. There is nothing unique or original in anything she's ever recorded. She is one of those who simply "got lucky". There are thousands of more talented singers who are waiting tables, yet to be discovered, that possess far more talent than Etheridge.
Any Christmas song, and any other song, performed by Kenny G.
"Christmas Time Is Here" - Peanuts Gang. This song is so grating I'd rather have nails pounded into my skull. Hell, I'll take a four-day migraine rather than listening to this unmitigated piece of horse manure.
"Do They Know It's Christmas" - Band Aid. The stuff that nightmares and serial killers are made of
"Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" - Bruce Springsteen. I think on this song, Bruce is Manlissa in drag, if that is possible.
"The Chipmunk Song" - The Chipmunks. Get me my .12 gauge, there will be dead rodents.
"Please Come Home For Christmas" - The Eagles. An over-rated piece of shit. And I like the Eagles!
Any Christmas song, and any other song, by Barbra Streisand. An over-rated, self-centered, ugly turd of a woman with a voice like nails being dragged across a chalk board.
"The Chanukah Song" - Adam Sandler. I do not like this song, I do not find Adam Sandler funny or humorous in any way, shape or form. He doesn't make me laugh, not even by accident. I just do not find Sandler funny or amusing at all; never have.
"The Twelve Days of Christmas" - by any artist. This song is too long, too repetitive and nauseating. Why...Sting should record it if he already hasn't.
"We Wish You A Merry Christmas (And A Happy New Year)" - by any artist. Another one that is too long, too repetitive and blood-in-your-stool inducing. Why...Sting should record it if he already hasn't.
Ten Best Christmas/Holiday Song
(In My Opinion)
These are the best, and they need no explanation as to their popularity, the abundance of talent by the performers and their timeless appeal:
1) "Blue Christmas" - Elvis
2) "The Christmas Song" (aka "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire") - Nat King Cole, Mel Torme and Ray Charles versions.
3) "Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree" - Brenda Lee
4) "Let It Snow" - Dean Martin
5) "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" - Frank Sinatra version
6) "I'll Be Home For Christmas" - Elvis
7) "Silver Bells" - Dean Martin
8) "Silent Night" - Andy Williams version
9) "Walkin' In A Winter Wonderland" - Dean Martin
10) "O' Holy Night" - Andy Williams and Luciano Pavarotti versions.
"Little Drummer Boy" - by any artist
Any Christmas song and any music sung by Tony Bennett - as long as it isn't "White Christmas".
Any Christmas song by Sinatra, Martin, Torme, Williams, Cole, Charles ... except "White Christmas", which - if you haven't already grasped - I simply fucking hate.
"Mele Kalikimaka" - Bing Crosby.
"What Christmas Means To Me" - Stevie Wonder"
"Jingle Bell Rock" - Chubby Checker & Bobby Rydell. Chubby is a legend and an incredibly talented musician, befitting of the title Rock 'N Roll Genius, without a doubt.
"Feliz Navidad" - José Feliciano. I never tire of this song, it's a mainstay and José is a brilliant and extremely talented musician.
Agree? Disagree? Wanna take me to task 'cuz I pooped on your fave Christmas song? Like I said, music is a very subjective thing. Leave a comment agreeing or disagreeing, if you'd like.
