When Hypocrisy Rules

From Fox News comes this story...talk about hypocrisy.

House Republicans blocked Democrats on Thursday from requiring oil and gas companies to drill on the millions of acres of government land and water on which they already own federal leases.

Seeking to counter a push by congressional Republicans to lift a long-standing drilling ban on most offshore U.S. waters, Democratic leaders maintained the industry should first go after oil and natural gas in areas where they hold leases.
HOWEVER... they did do this...
Separately, lawmakers moved to help local mass transit systems cope with a rush of new ridership as people turn to public transit in response to high gasoline prices.

The House voted 322-98 to authorize $1.7 billion over the next two years to lower fares and expand operations as more riders flock to public transit. The transit measure, which must still be considered by the Senate, marks the first time federal money would be used to support local mass transit operating costs.
However, mass transit has been supported every year. So, despite their clamoring, the repubs once again turned on americans.

I kind of understand why they would not vote for a bill requiring companies to drill in areas they are not doing so, mainly because probably the oil companies know that these are low quality areas and thus leaves these scrags till last, but then to turn around and spend tax dollars on mass transit that only a very very small percentage of people use in this country!?!?!

Once again, they turn to socialism and forcing small states to pay for the massive population center's problems.

Do yo need any more proof?

From Fox News:

Saudi marriage officiant Dr. Ahmad al-Mu’bi told Lebanese television viewers last week that it’s permissible for girls as young as 1 to marry — as long as sex is postponed.

Al-Mu’bi’s remarkable comments also included an explanation that “there is no minimal age for entering marriage.”

“You can have a marriage contract even with a 1-year-old girl, not to mention a girl of 9, 7 or 8,” he said. “But is the girl ready for sex or not?” What is the appropriate age for sex for the first time? This varies according to environment and tradition,” al-Mu’bi said.


'Nuff said.

People are Animals

I am a HUGE fan of Arena Football and have attended a few games. But I have noticed a very disturbing trend growing of late that is just pissing me off to no end.

Arena football has turned animal. and I am not talking about the players. When players land near the sides, the people in the stands will lean out as far as they can and WRESTLE the ball out of the player's hands.

This has to be stopped.

There needs to be flags on the home town's team for that. This is just beastial.

This is something that we as true Americans can get behind. Lets see that we do it. Take a gander at what and WHO is involved with this amazing event. Down near the bottom you can read of some of the organizations that are providing some of their own products for free.

From Michelle Malkin:

Six more days ’til the From the Frontlines web-a-thon

By Michelle Malkin • June 20, 2008 12:37 PM

1ftfl2.jpg

Just six more days ’til the awesome event I told you about over Memorial Day weekend. “From the Frontlines” is a joint project of Melanie Morgan’s Move America Forward, UStream.TV, and Hot Air. On June 26, from 4pm Eastern/1pm Pacific to 12midnight Eastern/9pm Pacific, Melanie and I will be anchoring a livestreamed, 8-hour fund-raising “web-a-thon” to send the largest number of care packages to our troops overseas in U.S. history. We’ve got a star-studded line-up participating in this effort to support our military, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham, Dr Laura Schlessinger, Ollie North, Monica Crowley, Ann Coulter, Nancy Reagan, actor Kelsey Grammer, and Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik. You’ll be able to tune it at Hot Air and on UStream, embed the broadcast on your own blogs, and even catch some of the show on your radio dial if you’re lucky to be in the listening area of a radio station partner.

You can purchase care packages right now, right here, in advance of the web-a-thon. Buy early and often! MAF has raised over $200,000 in advance of the telethon. Our goal is $500,000.

The tireless Melanie Morgan got the ball rolling a few months ago during an e-mail exchange we were having about the untapped synergies between radio, grass-roots conservative activism, and the Internet. I introduced her to Brad Hunstable at UStream and things took off like a rocket. The MAF team has amazing organizational skills and boundless energy; UStream’s staff has also gone above and beyond in making the program happen. I’m honored to play a small part in this unprecedented event and can’t wait for you to join us for an unforgettable day. Mark your calendars, tell your friends, and be sure to tune in.

***

Catherine Moy of MAF has more:

Thousands of Americans have already sponsored packages through MAF’s website and a giant database of names and addresses of U.S. troops in Iraq & Afghanistan is being built—so that the packages can reach our military men and women in time for the 4th of July holiday. MAF would like all families with loved ones in Iraq and Afghanistan to send addresses and names to ensure all troops benefit from the overwhelming support of a grateful nation, Morgan said.

Local businesses have stepped up for the cause. Sacramento-based coffee roaster, Cornerstone Coffee, is a principal supplier of the coffee included in the care packages. And the old Travelodge hotel on 11th & H donated offices used for preparing the care packages prior to shipping. The Travelodge has been refurbished into the new work/loft office complex known as “Retrolodge.”

The Fairfield-based Jelly Belly Co., which makes the gourmet Jelly Belly beans made famous by President Ronald Reagan, has donated 100,000 bags of their gourmet jelly beans that will be included in the care packages to assist in the effort.

“This effort has stuck a nerve with people from across the nation and here in Sacramento,” Morgan said. “I am personally ecstatic about the love the American people have for our troops.”

Democrats No Longer Hiding From Label

The Democrats have for years tried to hide from the labels of Liberal and socialist. They have claimed that they were "Progressive". Only stupid people actually believed that clap-trap. Everywhere else that the label "progressive" is used, the people are either communist or socialist. I mean, come on, there was a Socialist sect within the Democrat Congress and a great majority of them belonged to it. And I suspect a few Republicans as well.

But now, it would seem, that the Democrats are no longer hiding their true ideologies. They now feel open to freely express their true opinions and desires for "change" now that the Obamassiah is President.

From Rusty comest his bit of news:
What could possibly be worse than turning the American oil industry into a U.S. government monopoly? Turning the worldwide uranium enrichment industry into a U.N. monopoly. California Democratic Congresswoman urges just that.
Is that like allowing Iran to build nukes? Or allowing Congress to manage our southern border? Or allowing celebrities to pretend to give expert testimony in order to dictate national policy?
Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) standards are obsolete, and the growth in the sheer number of nuclear facilities world-wide has made it difficult for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to achieve its mission[, said Rep. Jane Harmon].
schaw, they are being built everywhere but here in the US. Thanks to people like Rep. Jane Harmon. Spankyou very much!!!

Michelle Malkin puts the point succinctly:
Okay…so we, um, let the UN make all the world’s enriched uranium and ration it. How long until the U.N. manages to turn “Atoms for Peace” into “Oil For Food II”?

More importantly, I don’t hear anything in there that would actually discourage a country like Iran or North Korea from enriching uranium, other than making them pinky swear to the IAEA that they won’t do it–
These people really think that more government controlling handouts is the answer to everything. They already want to take over American oil and gas companies like Chavez did in Venenzuela. Talk about a complete shafting of the constitution. But then, then socialism never cared about rules, people, or following laws. Not like democrats have been very pro-America of late either (Obama, Obama's wife, Murtha, Pelosi, Reid, etc).

Washington Building Border Fence... sorta

From WND comes this amazing tale of hypocrisy on the part of our own government with regard to our national security. Can our administration be more concerned with the security of an enemy of Israel than with our own? Or Israel's?
Washington was finally getting serious about building a border fence. I told you some $23 million had been allocated for engineering teams to focus on smuggling tunnels and building a sturdier, impregnable border barrier. The resources of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had been directed to help with the project.

That was the good news.

The bad news was the border fence is not between the U.S. and Mexico. It is the fence separating the Hamas-cidal maniacs in the Gaza Strip from their Arab neighbors in Egypt.

You will often hear from those opposing the building of a U.S.-Mexico border fence that it won't work – it won't really stop or be a deterrent to those determined to cross over into the U.S. The detractors often cite tunneling as one option.

Well, guess what? The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has figured that out – at least so far as the tunnels being dug under the fence between Gaza and Egypt. The U.S. is teaching the Egyptian troops how to use advanced technological equipment to find and destroy the tunnels, including instruments that measure ground fluctuations and signal that a tunnel is being dug.

Haven't officials in Washington been telling the American people for the last two years that building border fences is a waste of time and money? Don't they claim that fences really don't keep undesirables out? Don't they tell us fences are inhumane and oppressive? Didn't they say you can't build a fence high enough to keep out bad guys?

So why is it that a border fence separating Arabs in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula from Arabs in Gaza is a good thing? And why does it work?

Didn't Washington also tell Israelis they shouldn't build a fence to protect their civilian population from Arab terrorists on the West Bank? Why, I must ask, was it morally wrong for the Israelis to build a fence to protect their citizens from Arab terrorists, but it's the right thing for Egypt to do? In fact, it's so right for Egypt, American taxpayers have been volunteered to pick up the tab!

So Egypt has been forced to build fences and walls to keep the infiltration to a minimum. It's funny how you don't hear many complaints about this wall.

You sure hear them every time an American insists one should be erected along the U.S. southern border. You certainly heard them during Israel's construction of its own security barrier separating itself from the future Palestinian state next door.

And no one claims this wall won't work. In fact, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is determined to make it work and is spending U.S. taxpayer dollars to ensure it does.
Why are we paying\subsidizing the construction of a border wall between two enemies of the US and Israel? Why are we saying that this wall is ok to build, but ours and Israel's is not. Why is $23 million being spent on a wall half-way across the world when our own wall is so full of holes and is only a fraction of the way built. Oh the hypocrisy of it all.

Who Knew ....

the movie "Chicken Run" was a Zionist propaganda piece with subtle messages with...
allusions to the Holocaust, to concentration camps, and to the concept of awaiting a hero or a savior. It portrays efforts to escape a predetermined fate – the death of all those who lived in that camp, who are depicted as chickens. Eventually, a kind of Noah's Ark is built – in this case, it is a flying ship – which is used for their escape.
And then hilarity ensued as did during the days of the Holocaust I'm sure. Zionist infiltration of Disney and Dreamworks??? Too insane and funny to not have been spoken by these nutbags.

Is it Islam, or just Islamic countries, that produce these idiot people?

Who Wins the Kiss-Up-To-Israel Contest?

Jon Stewart took a look at how the presidential candidates for Russia .. err.. USA, faired at wooing the votes of Jews during their AIPAC speeches.

Watch the video. Once again, Bobby Obama looks horrendous while Mccain looks dead.

Obamassiah is Pro-.... .... huh?

From Jerusalem Post comes this hodge-podge of thinking direct from Obama.

"Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided," Obama declared Wednesday, to rousing applause from the 7,000-plus attendees at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference.

But a campaign adviser clarified Thursday that Obama believes "Jerusalem is a final status issue, which means it has to be negotiated between the two parties" as part of "an agreement that they both can live with."

He refused, however, to rule out other configurations, such as the city also serving as the capital of a Palestinian state or Palestinian sovereignty over Arab neighborhoods.

"Beyond those principles, all other aspects are for the two parties to agree at final status negotiations," the Obama adviser said.

Well, that does clarify things. It proves that he is NOT pro-Israel. He is in fact a naive diplomat who refuses to defend and support one of our closest friends and allies. They are our friends for many reasons, the primary of which is that we are a Christian nation based out of Israel. Our faith and system of government were born there.

If you do not believe that Jerusalem belongs to Israel, then you my friend are not a believer in the Bible and are no supporter of democracy and freedom.

IowaHawk for President

IowaHawk for President. He has my vote based on his carefully thought out Contract with America.

Engagement With Our Adversaries

The world stage is complicated, and America cannot rely solely on military force to guard our national interests. We must never be afraid to meet with our adversaries for frank and open discussions over the issues that divide us. Thats why my first act as President will be to invite Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad to the White House for a top level negotiation session, without preconditions. "Mr. President," I will ask, "what can we do to persuade your government to curtail its nuclear ambitions?" While he is laying out his terms, I will send the signal to my Vice President / secret button czar Jeff Goldstein, and SPLASH! crazyboy drops right into the Oval Office piranha tank.

The Religion of Peace, Love and Compassion

From DMartyr over at SnappedShot.com comes this lovely little story about how Albanian Muslims want to use violence with the power of the state behind it to subdue Kosovo Christians.
The self-styled deputy prime minister of the Muslim Albanian separatist entity government in Kosovo, Hajredin Ku├ži, is threatening to use the "violence of the state" in order to force Kosovo Serbs, who are Christian, to obey the laws Islamic separatist government plans to pass on June 15.
Over the past weekend, Islamic judge decided that wearing certain kinds of t-shirts by Christians is illegal and punished the two Christian brothers for that with a 500 Euro fine and/or 60 days in jail.

MoonBats Going Crazy Over Bonfires

It would seem that in Seattle, liberal green wackos believe that bonfires along their beaches will lead to "global warming".

But Seattle Parks and Recreation might do what even this week's chilly weather couldn't -- douse the long tradition of beach bonfires at Alki and at Golden Gardens.

Park department staff is recommending reducing bonfires at the two beaches this summer and possibly banning them altogether next year.

The park board will hear the recommendation Thursday, and the city plans to run public-service announcements and hand out brochures later this month about the effects of bonfires on global warming.

According to a memo to the park board from the staff released Thursday, "The overall policy question for the Board is whether it is good policy for Seattle Parks to continue public beach fires when the carbon ... emissions produced by thousands of beach fires per year contributes to global warming."

Well, despite all the hooplah around the web this weekend over this news story, one who has lived up in that area knows where this is coming from. There has been a consistent effort on the part of policy people in the NW to push homeowners away from wood stoves. Currently, only state-certified stoves can be purchased. And, they can only be installed by state-certified official wood stove installers.

I only see this story out of Seattle as another in a long line of measures to do away with any kind of personal burning. Whether that is wood stoves, bonfires, backyard BBQs, and pretty soon... fireworks.

Like I said, I am not surprised and neither should you. These people are voted in to office by you people. You want to decrease governmental budgets, decrease utility bills, decrease gas prices, increase individual liberties, increase funding for troops and the war of the southern border.... then elect the right people.

More Differences Between Islam and Christianity

From SnappedShot.com comes more of the difference between Islam and Christianity.

One fundamental difference between Muslims and the rest of humanity. How many parents would have left their child in an abusive situation in order to secure their own selfish salvation? Why would these parents send their child back to a school where they knew he was being savagely beaten?

Sacrificing children - even one's own children - is a virtue in Islam. Why? Because unlike Christianity, which offers salvation through the intercession of God's child, Muslims believe their salvation lies with the intercession of another Muslim.

Confederate Flag = Hatred and Racism??

http://www.kare11.com
"We're all big fans of the Dukes of Hazard," said Dan Fredin, who was suspended, along with Joe Snyder and Justin Thompson. "It's just us showing we have our own style and we aren't going to conform to whatever anyone else thinks."
That will get you in trouble right from the get go with the conformists.
School officials say at least one of the students waved and carried the flag in the parking lot. The boys argue they never took the flags off their trucks, but they admit they brought them to the school.

Officials asked the students to remove the flags. Eventually, all three students were suspended for three days -- which, in this case, included graduation. Officials say a Student Code of Conduct prohibits behavior that may provoke or offend other students.

"We are very clear that the Confederate flag is a symbol of hatred, bigotry and racism," said Rick Kaufman, the Executive Director of Community Relations at Bloomington Kennedy High School.
Hmmm. The Confederate Flag equals hatred and bigotry (against who?) as well as racism? Why is it a symbol of racism? Because it was used by the KKK during their rallies? Does that mean the Duke Boys and the show "Dukes of Hazard" was racist? Was that show about hatred and bigotry?

Now, you can say that the KKK was about hatred, bigory and racism as it was directed against Jews and Blacks. But, does the Confederate Flag represent those ideals as well? Let's go back to the earlier days of the Confederate Flag. From WikiPedia again...

The first Confederate Flag was called "The Stars and Bars" and somewhat resembled the then current US Flag. It was changed to the second confederate flag that was called "The Stainless Banner". It was this flag that incorporated the symbol that later became known as the Confederate Flag as part of its design. The third flag was square and was the battle flag of the confederate states in order to distinguish its armies from the northern Union armies' flags. Ultimately there were 13 stars within the blue crossed banner on a field of red. A navy flag was developed from this but made into rectangular shape and a much lighter blue field. This flag was not widely used. The final flag, that became the widely known "Confederate Flag" utilized the rectangular shape of the navy flag and the colors from the battle flag.

The flags were designed over many years to help distinguish armies from opposing armies and to denote who is involved and identified under that flag. Thus there were 13 stars for the 13 states near the end of 1861.

So, here we see the formation and history of the flag and how it was not intended as means to promote and instill fear and hatred upon the Confederate State's enemies. The ideology of the Confederate States is one of rebellion and standing up for what you believe in and fighting against the big government rules.

From WikiPedia.com comes this definition of bigot: Bigot is often used as a pejorative term against a person who is obstinately devoted to prejudices even when these views are challenged or proven to be false or not universally applicable or acceptable.

So get this. To be a bigot to means to be intolerant of other people's views, to be prejudiced against others and to hold opinions that are counter to common knowledge. To me, it is the school officials that are bigoted here. They are the ones that are being hateful and bigoted towards the views of these High Schoolers. To me, this is clearly a violation of free speech.

And, the Civil War was not about racism. It was about state's rights over federal rights. It was about the feds telling the states what laws they will be forced to enact and how to live their lives. That war was not about the hatred of blacks. While some in the south probably did indeed hate blacks (that feeling was world wide actually), the reason for secession was over the fact that the states did not want to be told how to operate by the feds.
"It's truly unfortunate that the bad decision they made will prevent them from walking across the stage in graduation," Kaufman said adding that the school has dealt with students bringing confederate flags to school before.
Now, was this after school and in the parking lot? Or was it in a classroom? If it was after school, then I think something could be made that they were on their own time.
But the students argue the punishment doesn't fit the crime. They say they show the flag as a sign of rebellion, not racism.

"The confederate army was in rebellion to the U.S. Army who were about money and power," Fredin said. "We never took it as racial or anything like that."

Meantime, the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota said the students would likely not have a case in court.
Yeah, wonder why that is?!?! Hmmm?
"If the authorities can make the claim that the presence of the flag can reasonably disrupt the educational process than they can censor it," said Charles Samuelson with the ACLU of Minnesota.
Yeah, not like the ACLU to stand up for normal decent people. ACLU is all about trashing christianity, protecting deviants and freaks, and demolishing established historical and cultural norms.

Difference Between Conservatism and Liberalism (Anarchists)

I was perusing HotAir.com and came upon this wonderful exchange between George Will and Colbert from Colbert Report.

You have to watch the video to the end. Will is immensely funny in a dead-pan sort of way. He exquisitely describes the differences between Conservatives and Liberals.

More Thoughts On Illegal Immigration

Thank you midnite.
I whole-heartedly agree. However, Mexico HAS advocated illegal immigration with their creation of pamphlets to aid the illegal's crossing. They have refused to assist us on the border to eliminate the violence from drug cartels and rogue army soldiers. Who is to say whether those Mexican soldiers are under orders to shoot at US Border Patrol or not.

We need to allow our Border Patrol to shoot back with BIGGER weaponry. No more putting our Patrol agents in jail for defending this nation from Mexican drug runners.

This is an invasion. This is their way of taking over our country without officially firing a shot or declaring war. They want our lands and our resources and our economy. They greatly depend upon us to fuel and feed their people back home even.

I say it is time to stop this. I say we stop NAFTA and any other monetary measures we have with Mexico, until they agree to stop their people from illegally crossing into our country. Of course, this also means we have to do something on our side as well. And you know as well as I, that that is not going to happen for at least another 4-5 years no matter who wins the presidency this term.

Our Legislature has continually sold us out to the lowest bidder and undermined our national sovereignty. They have proved time and time again that they will do anything to promote illegal immigration through their creation of amnesty programs. There have been at least a half-dozen amnesty programs enacted by Congress and signed by Presidents. What lunacy is this?

When it takes longer and longer for people who want to come here legally, what lunacy is this that gives a free pass and no consequences amnesty to people who broke our laws to get here. And in many cases, continually break the laws on a daily basis.

If you are sick and tired of illegal immigration, then do something about it, ya'll. Vote for people who will enforce our immigration laws. Vote for people who will not allow illegals to have more rights than legal citizens. Vote for people who will not promise amnesty programs. Vote for people who will actively prosecute businesses who employ illegals. Vote for national legislators who will block all aid to Mexico until they begin to respect out national sovereignty.

One of the reasons we have illegal immigration

From the Glenn Beck show comes this video of his take on illegal immigration. He interviews an Arizona State Legislator on their "controversial" (any time the media calls it controversial, you know it has to be good for America) new law that bans businesses from hiring anyone without proper American identification. Mexico is furious about. Well, was furious as this happened I believe earlier this year.

Glenn's interview with this legislator shows how vapid our legislators really are. This guy strongly believes that it is Mexico's right to come and dictate what laws we enact and enforce. He strongly believes that it is OK for Mexico to come to America and tell US that we HAVE to hire their illegals because the country of Mexico can't afford them. And if America sends them back, then it will be a travesty because Mexico is unable to house, school and feed them.

BOOHOOO!! Who Cares!! Who cares what Mexico thinks about our own laws that protect our nation, lands, economy and our families.

Please watch the video...

Update on Capt Scott

Hello all,

Here is an update on my fun and joy with Capt. Scott Wright. After repeated attempts to get him to reply to me, my friend has decided to cut me loose. I feel....betrayed. I feel like I have lost a part of myself.

(sniffle)

Anyways, back to life.
I apologize for not updating more here. I have been in the process of moving to a new and temporary location. I don't know how long I will be here at my new super secret location, so I may have the joy of moving again very soon. UGH!!!! I think I would rather go in debt again to pay someone to move me that move myself again. I have moved 8 times now in 10 years.

And what is strange, each time I move I have to increase the size of the you-haul truck. BUT, I keep throwing stuff away too. How does that happen? This time prior, I moved my house which included a washer and dryer and a motorcycle in the back of 24-foot "u"-haul. This time, I did not have the washer and dryer or the motorcycle. So I was thinking to myself, "self, we should get a 17-foot truck because I have fewer big things to move." Right?? NOOOOOOO.

It would seem that the 17-footer is also narrower than the 24-foot. Therefore, I had lost ALOT of truck space not just truck length. I had to make 2 trips with one of the 2 other cars helping me move stuff.

Did I mention I hate moving??? Did I mention that I may have to move again here shortly?

UGH!!

By the way, if you would all like to help me find my best friend Capt. Scott, you can email him and share your "happy" thoughts here: captain.wright.2@gmail.com
