She either talks like this because she’s pitifully and dangerously stupid, for a presidential candidate; or she knows too well the ignorance of her adoring fans!

Read this article from the Daily News and you decide:




Sunday, December 23rd 2007, 4:00 AM

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Hillary Clinton predicted Saturday that just electing her President will cut the price of oil.

When the world hears her commitment at her inauguration about ending American dependence on foreign fuel, Clinton says, oil-pumping countries will lower prices to stifle America's incentive to develop alternative energy.

"I predict to you, the oil-producing countries will drop the price of oil," Clinton said, speaking at the Manchester YWCA. "They will once again assume, once the cost pressure is off, Americans and our political process will recede."

Clinton argued that former President Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s actually started moving in the right direction toward energy independence, but his successor, Ronald Reagan, "dismantled" that work.

"Because costs were low, people didn't care, didn't complain," she said.

She warned that folks shouldn't be grateful now if oil countries cut prices from near $100 a barrel to $60 or $70, and compared it to trying to boil a frog.

"You put him in hot water, it jumps right out, you put him in cold water and turn up the heat - he's a goner," she said. "We've got to figure out how were going to not be the frog in the cold water anymore."


She will say anything to anybody and promise everything to everybody! But wait! Isn’t the price of oil set by the world’s commodity exchanges from Tokyo to Chicago? Yes, it is.

Hillary says “oil-producing countries will drop the price of oil.” Huh?
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which I think she is referring to, actually regulates the production of oil, not the price. If “oil-producing countries” simply moved the price of a barrel of oil up and down, then I suspect the United States, an oil-producing country, would have weighed in by now and lowered the price of oil.

OPEC regulates the production of oil because – Get this you anti-capitalists – supply and demand determine the price of oil! More oil production, lower prices. Less oil production, higher prices.

Since that is the way it works outside of Washington (as in the real world), I’ve got a great idea for increasing oil production. DRILL FOR OIL! Drill for oil in the United States of America!

We’ve got vast oil reserves in Alaska and off our shores where rigs don’t have to stick out of people’s back yards. China is here drilling for oil off our shores, presumably because they understand capitalism better than the buffoons in Washington who don’t want to upset the sensibilities of non-thinking people in their hometowns.

The world’s oil production currently stands at a capacity to produce 85 million barrels of oil per day. That’s it. To increase production by 1 million barrels per day, 1,000 wells would have to increase output by 1,000 barrels a day. That isn’t likely to happen, there’s no incentive. We will continue paying higher and higher prices until we reach a breaking point, at which, well….we’re screwed!

How do you increase production? Drill new wells. Expand oil production in the good ole U.S. of A.
ANWR anyone???

Thanks to all of you who have sent me emails this past year ........

I must send my thanks to whoever sent me the one about rat shit in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet towel with every envelope that needs sealing.

Also, I now have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason.

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown); who is about to die in the hospital for the 1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money at all, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program .

Or from the senior bank clerk in Nigeria who wants me to split $7 million with me for pretending to be a long lost relative of a customer who died intestate.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me.

I no longer use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

Thanks to you, I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within five minutes.

Because of your concern I no longer drink Coca-Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer can buy gas without taking a man along to watch the car so a serial killer won't crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica, Uganda, Singapore and Uzbekistan.

Thanks to you, I can't use anyone's toilet but mine because a big brown African spider is lurking under the seat to cause me instant death when it bites my bum.

And thanks to your great advice, I can't even pick up the $5.00 I found dropped in the car park because it probably was placed there by a sex molester waiting underneath my car to grab my leg.

Thanks for all the emails that were written by or about someone famous without checking the story out first on to see if it is an urban myth or only partially true.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00pm this afternoon and the fleas from 12 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump.

I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's beautician.

By the way....a South American scientist after a lengthy study has discovered that people with low IQ who have infrequent sexual activity always read blogs and their e-mails with their hand on the mouse.

Don't bother taking it off now, it's too late.

In another example of how the “Religion of Peace” has so prudently meted justice in the Middle East, a Saudi Arabia court sentenced a 19 year old woman to 200 lashes of the whip and six months in prison.

The woman’s crime? She was “alone with an unrelated man” when they were abducted and she was raped by seven men.

That’s right! She was gang raped and now must pay the price for allowing herself to be treated that way.

Under Saudi Arabia’s strict reading of Islamic law, she was originally sentenced to 90 lashes. Last week, the Supreme Judicial Council in Riyadh, obviously shocked at how well she was being treated, increased the sentence to 200 lashes and six months in prison.

Where are the Libs who complain ad nausea about the possibility of a terrorist being water boarded???

No uproar about this being “cruel and unusual?” As usual, the left is silent on this one. But I suppose we can’t denigrate the Religion of Peace!?

Is Hillary Clinton one of the biggest bull shitters this world has ever seen? She sure is, and legions of uneducated, screaming and adoring toadies kneel at her feet slurping up every nonsensical promise and outrageous statement she makes.

Fortunately for her (and unfortunately for us), there is no shortage of people unwilling to do a little fact checking or to ask a tough question; in other words, unwilling to “do the math.” The obvious consequence being she says, and gets away with saying, any idiotic thing she likes. Outlandish statements about the state of affairs and outlandish promises with no detail attached.

Such is the “ignorance is bliss,” duhhhhh-like life of a Clinton supporter.

To wit: According to, she is claiming her plan to tackle global warming will create 5 million new jobs. Besides the obvious lack of explanation for how this might happen, she (woops!) fails to crunch any numbers for us about how many millions of jobs will be lost to government intervention and suppression of free markets in her quest to tax our way into living on a planet that will survive the certain inevitable holocaust caused by an unchecked George W. Bush. (Every bad thing, real or imagined (or lied about) for the foreseeable future, will be blamed on W with the total complicity of the leftstream media; at least until the next unfathomably evil Republican checks into the White House.)

Parts of her plan include reducing greenhouse gasses by 80% from 1990 levels by 2050 and cutting imports of foreign oil by two thirds by 2030.

So she wants to cut imports by two thirds in roughly 22 years? But not by drilling off our shores like China drills off our shores, and certainly not by disturbing two percent of ANWR, as proposed, to tap a vast oil reserve that would almost certainly relieve us of some dependency on foreign oil.

She says that global warming is hurting low-income families (whatever that refers to. Define low-income) because one in four has missed a rent or mortgage payment as a result of high energy costs. (Or could it be they missed a rent or mortgage payment because of low income and/or misspent priorities?)

If these people had bought their homes from Hillary and her infamous Whitewater Development Corporation, they would have no equity, would lose their homes and the homes would go back to Hillary to be resold. (For more on how her Whitewater scam worked, see my 6/28/07 post.)

I haven’t heard one challenge from the Democrats on these claims and the press ignores challenges from anyone else.

One thing I do understand and believe is her call for a $150 billion “investment,” called for in her energy package. Investment is political speak for taxes. She and the other Dem candidates have all promised a big tax hike for us if they win the White House. Not many people are listening though, and the press doesn’t exactly report that kind of stuff.

In earlier speeches, she said she would pay for her program by ending tax subsidies for oil companies, saying they could afford it with oil at more than $90 a barrel. Look, I’m all for ending corporate welfare across the board. But singling out oil companies? Okay, let’s give them more reasons to not want to do business in the US. I’m thinking just about any country would like to host our oil industry and all the taxes and jobs that come with it. Let’s give oil companies even less incentive to produce to capacity in this country!

And now for a little icing on this disgusting cake. The Clinton campaign on Friday admitted to planting questions in the audience at a Newton, Iowa rally. Apparently, they like to coach audience members before the Q&A sessions on what to ask Mrs. Clinton. And what would the first question be? According to Grinnell College student Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, she asked, as coached, “As a young person, I’m worried about the long-term effects of global warming. How does your plan combat climate change?” I guess Hillary figures if real people don’t want to hear how brilliant she is about her solutions to climate change, then she can just plant someone to ask the questions she would like to answer.

She’s all class, isn’t she?!


Ps. For the record: I don’t see a Republican candidate that excites me in a good way either. Nor do I see one (yet) who lacks basic decency like this woman does!

Hillary is hiding behind skirts, ironically, while the rest of the Democrat field is pummeling her, not only on her record, but her flip-flopping and gaffs when under pressure. It’s not too often Hillary gets asked hard questions under pressure, but during the most recent Democrat love fest…er, debate, the moderator hit her with a question about whether she supports Governor (Elliot) Spitzer’s attempt to give illegal aliens drivers licenses.

This wasn’t even a tough question, but it is for a Democrat at this stage of the game. Democrats restrict their appearances to sympathetic audiences and interviews such as with the “press” corps of ABC, NBC and CBS. Or with CNN (Clinton News Network?), MSNBC (what Bernard Goldberg describes as “The witness protection program of networks,” for its lack of viewership) and CNBC. So committed are they to dodging challenges, they have collectively refused to debate, thus far, on The Fox News Channel. How cowardly is that?

She squirmed, sputtered and folded like an accordion under the pressure. She is usually served softball questions that concern one of the many, many giveaways she promises on a regular basis, pretty much to whatever group she is addressing. This time, she forgot that Americans, by an overwhelming majority, are tired of illegal immigration.

Caught by a question she hadn’t rehearsed for that day, she was seen spewing her flip-flopping, pandering reflexive pablum. Her absolutely and insanely unintelligible response drew rapid fire from the other contestants on the stage. The balance of the evening was laced with assaults from Obama, Edwards and Dodd.

Hillary’s response? She’s complaining about the “all-boy’s club of presidential politics,” and her campaign produced a video called “The Politics of Piling On” after the debate. Egad! No kidding! The boys on the field are picking on her!

If she thinks Obama, Edwards and Dodd are tough, what the hell is she going to do when she has to deal with real men? I mean guy guys who have fought their way through real lives instead of feeding at the eternal government trough?

How is she going to deal with mean men, like the ones that head up the vast majority of countries in this world? Even creepy little mean men like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? How on earth would she deal with guys like W who don’t put up with anyone’s shit?

Of course, Bill came to her rescue blaming the boys for beating up on her in the proverbial school yard. Her opponents took after him too. Bill’s one of those guys who is really tough when surrounded by his group of sycophants (all people just as individually weak as him), but isn’t worth a tinker’s damn when mano a mano. It’s easy to pick these guys out because they’re usually the ones who get off picking on girls. And anyone who cares to open their eyes knows Bill is a bully with the girls. To listen to them, he has sexually harassed them in any way one can imagine, including rape.

Anyway, Hillary’s opposition smells blood and one of her key vulnerabilities will continue to be her tendency, much like her husband’s, of slipping into victimhood. Bill got away with it because he’s a girly guy. But the electorate has a definite intolerance for girly girls.

With the advent of baby boomers entering retirement age, the media focus, not to mention consumer regulatory focus, appears to be on the scores of millions of new people who have entered “victimhood” status. Now it can be assumed that anyone turning 50 and receiving their coveted first AARP card in the mail is now a protected class of victims. There goes the neighborhood…again!

Being in that age class, I’m embarrassed at the number of people I know (pretty much all of them who’ve turned 50) who snatch up that membership card with a certain giddiness. They pay their dues happily to get a ten percent discount on a cup of coffee to drink while they read the inevitable and unstoppable barrage of junk mail heaped upon them.

I don’t know of one of them who have bothered to find out what AARP is. Apparently it doesn’t matter as long as it strokes folks’ senses of entitlement.

AARP is a shamelessly liberal gim’me organization that boasts its powerful lobbying status. Formerly the “American Association for Retired Persons,” AARP dropped the name and stuck with the acronym when they realized there were millions of baby boomers to sucker into making it the second biggest organization in the United States, behind the Catholic Church, and the country’s most powerful lobby.

AARP is good at marketing its ideas to the over 50 and stupid crowd, such as opposing President Bush’s social security reform plan.

The reform plan would have allowed people to volunteer up to five percent of their social security payments to private investments. That would have given anyone who chose to participate, control of up to five percent of their social security taxes. Politicians and AARP dopes like to call these taxes “investments.”

For the first time in the history of the program, people could have had control over how their money was invested. They also would have “owned” that money. That means the money they controlled would not be part of the social security disaster, the fund that does not exist. Up to five percent of someone’s forced contributions would actually belong to THEM! What a concept! So radically sensible that AARP couldn’t stand the thought of some of their members having some freedom and being five percent less dependent on government.

They did a grand job of trashing the idea simply by telling their membership it was bad. I wonder how many members bothered to look any further than their most recent junk mailing on the subject from their AARP leaders. No problem spending money on one of their affiliates’ life, health, prescription or long term care scams, though.

To the 35 million members of the second biggest organization in the country, it was a lockstep non-decision to oppose the plan. Freedom anyone? Self sufficiency anyone? Nope! It’s sad to think that these 35 million people are all eligible to vote. I do wish most of them would stay home and leave the election process to folks who could pass a simple civics quiz. How about to people who have read the Constitution? Nah, let’s not get carried away.

I returned home from my daughter’s softball tournament on Sunday to find my son distraught over hearing that his classmate, Eli Florence, had passed away at his home earlier in the day. Eli had suffered from Leukemia for the past five years and finally lost his battle with the disease.

Sunday’s tournament had begun at 1:00 pm in the warm glow of sunshine on an otherwise crisp autumn day. About two hours later the sky became cloudy and rain fell shortly after 3:00 for the duration. When I got home, I learned why the weather had taken such a cold, sad turn. Seems the sky was weeping for our friend Eli.

I am having a hard time digesting the sad truth of what transpired over the weekend. Eli had been crowned homecoming king at his Lake Fenton High School little more than a week before. Five students sidestepped their own chances to give Eli the honor. He was a sophomore. Eli was scheduled to be hosted at the University of Michigan’s homecoming game on Saturday including a visit on the sidelines with coach Lloyd Carr. He was too sick to attend.

I can’t for the life of me understand where the love of God is when a 15 year old young man is called to heaven. I don’t understand where a parent finds the faith to endure such a loss. I couldn’t sleep Sunday night with Eli’s loving family on my mind. Wondering over and over again how they manage to keep their sanity.

My personal doctor is an oncologist and I had to ask him on Monday; how does one reconcile the tragic, untimely loss of a 15 year old boy to cancer. He told me simply, “you don’t.” He had no other comfort, shared no other wisdom, as if to make a point that you don’t try to soften such a hard blow. I got the message. Some things should be hard. Some things shouldn’t make sense. And some things we should carry, under their entire weight.

I have been uncharacteristically numbed by the story of Eli. I’ve prayed for him every day for years on end. I registered as a potential bone marrow donor to no avail. This young man has been on my mind since I first heard of him shortly after moving to our community. I have been emotionally moved into submission.

I am not related to his family and our families were not acquainted. But I feel a kinship to all children, especially children who hurt. Injured children are what I understand best, they make the best human beings. And it is impossible to fully process the loss of any child; particularly a child who doesn’t live long enough to learn that adolescence were the hardest years of their lives.

It is my belief that no one can truly comprehend how much love a person of Eli’s caliber brings to us and our world…it is simply too abundant and rich to grasp. The innocent are truly Angels.

God rain comfort -- the little comfort that can be absorbed -- onto Eli’s family.

Thank you, Eli, for awakening me with your sleep. You live on in our hearts and you are truly a gift.

Hillary launched her two day “Middle Class Express” bus tour of Iowa with a speech that departed from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), signed into law by her husband. She thinks NAFTA should be reassessed and “adjusted,” though she didn’t offer tangible details.

I’m pretty sure she didn’t offer details because she really doesn’t have any. You don’t need details for the crowd she’s speaking to. She’s speaking to union membership and other democrat gim’me’crats who don’t bother to pick up printed material and actually read about what they’re for or against.

I’m not foolish enough to think for a New York moment that people who’s vote can be swayed or sealed on that kind of idiotic talk do any reading beyond their horoscope, Ann Landers or the sports pages. I beg any one of them to spend two sentences on NAFTA without their brain exploding.

“I think we do need to take a deep breath and figure out how we can make it work for the greatest numbers of people,” Billary added. The “greatest number of people“ comment, of course, is meant to make all of her lackeys think they’re in the “greatest number.”

With “greatest number,” she is specifically addressing the union leadership. This being the same fine leadership that has contributed so greatly to the high unemployment rate in Michigan, Ohio and some other rust belt areas of the country.

This is the same fine leadership that lobbies against right-to-work laws that give an employee the right to join a union…or not! For the record, Michigan is not a right-to-work state. Here, you have no right to not join a union if your coworkers are organized. The union leadership we’re talking about also will take away the right to a secret ballot when they try to organize in a particular workplace. This tactic has the obvious effect of intimidating workers who don’t want to join, into voting for membership. If the Dems take the White House in addition to controlling the legislature, this too will become law. Guaranteed!

Anyway, Clinton’s most recent empty speech will surely please the left and some dopes on the right. Unfortunately, in this country most people fall all over themselves for people who use phrases like “greater good; wealth redistribution; level playing field; fair share;” and my personal favorite, “working people.”

She no doubt appeals to people who think the United States is a democracy, and others who have never bothered to read the Constitution.

On the other side of the aisle, I watched the most recent Republican candidate’s debate the other day on CNBC. Not real exciting. There have been so many debates at this point, 13 months before the election, that no one watches them. In fact it looked like the candidates themselves didn’t entirely show up either.

Worst moment of the debate was when Sen. Fred Thompson was asked “What are the dangers of a weak dollar?” He appeared to be desperately trying to make up the answer as he stumbled, and failed to sound convincing. Even if you didn’t know the answer, it sounded as though he didn’t either. Painful.

What a tired looking bunch. And as bad as they sounded, the Democrat candidates are worse…content wise.

Shaping up to be a scary election season!

We lucky folks in Michigan woke up this morning to a large tax increase. For anyone who doesn’t know, Michigan faced a government shutdown and the solution our brilliant governor, Jennifer Granholm, and our esteemed legislature “worked out,” was a tax increase. Michigan’s state income tax was increased overnight and many services that were not taxed will now be taxed at 6% with a sales tax.

With the state threatened with a possible partial shutdown, I was elated. I couldn’t wait to see how things ran without the thousands of unnecessary employees bleeding us as they’re wasting away in their union protected, bloated departments.

The local news rounded up and interviewed the usual suspects to show us how they “support” the actions of their governor and legislature and how they think Michigan will now enter a new era.

Puke! Gag me!

Judging by what the interviewees had to say, they no doubt have their hands in the till and aren’t ashamed of shouting that fact to the world. But then again in Michigan, it’s normal to expect a handout.

I’m not talking about a “My children are cold can you spare some food, clothing or shelter?” handout, I’m talking about the typical entitlement mentality around here. Everyone who has a kid, craving or complaint in this state expects to be given the means to support it. By ‘given’ and by ‘means,’ I mean they expect me and you, if you try to earn an honest living, to cough up a few more bucks for them at the end of the barrel of a government equalizer (the 9mm variety).

Everyone is a victim!

I don’t care what their means or circumstances, people in this state are used to the gravy train. Problem is we’re running out of gravy makers. Most of the people who do work and support themselves in this state are on their way out of here or dreaming of the day they can book. The rest have already left. They went to the states where educated people contribute to the economy, not just take. They’re contributing to states that don’t have income taxes or have a much lower rate than ours at 4.35% (yesterday it was 3.9%).

Guess what? The idiots in this state would reelect the same brain dead and cowardly trough-slop eaters tomorrow if given the chance. Anyone who promises a big enough handout around here is the easy winner.

Our most recent gubernatorial contest featured a wildly successful business owner who understands market economics and isn’t afraid of ruffling political feathers, against our current second-term political-machine-educated, lifetime public-trough-feeding lame-ass governor. And the latter won in a landslide. Welcome to Michigan. If you’re a proven failure but still promise the right freebees, you’re elected in this state.

Michigan – Hands out America!

As if to boost my point and in case there was any doubt in the Country’s collective mind about the moronic state of the State here, the UAW went on strike against General Motors less than a week before the state budget deadline. If there was any doubt at all about the sloth mentality here, that should have erased it. UAW members think they won something, though anyone who can think and read a book, knows better. The union leadership knows better, GM made out like a bandit and the rank and file were told to be obedient little soldiers and be happy for how they stood up to “the man.” Joke’s on them. But most of us know you can only siphon so much before you start sucking air.

What to do...

Since we’re fast running out of income sources because corporations and other revenue generating taxpayers are leaving or staying away from here, what would be the logical solution?

Our cowards in Lansing, of course looking no farther than their next election, have decided to punish us who remain and ensure no one else shows up at the border trying to invest and create jobs in our state. It’s a demolition derby of sorts where we beat the hell out of each other, taking each other’s stuff until the last man is standing.

Then maybe someone will try to start a democratic republic in the big mitten.


Ps. Speaking of pandering via handouts, Hillary says she wants to give all babies $5,000. No explanation, no plan. And the dopes eat it up. I shit you not!
Like a colleague told me today; “This is one screwed up world we live in.”

God help us travelers. The government wants to take action and force new guidelines onto the airlines to make traveling “more pleasant.”

The feds, i.e. Congress, think they can make waiting more pleasurable. I am so sick and tired of our wussy, nanny-prone electorate running to the government every time they sense a little discomfort. The government, folks, at least when it comes to money, would be you and me.

I’m not interested in bucking up for even higher fares while the airlines are burdened by another rule distraction that will surely be passed on to us in the name of surcharges that will certainly contain a little extra profit for the airlines. That’s the way it always goes.

As someone who takes from 75 to 105 flights per year to enjoy making a living, I certainly am sympathetic to paying passengers who are forced to sit on an airplane for extended periods of time for seemingly weird or unacceptable reasons. After all, I am one of those passengers.

But to go to the policing, gun-toting, menacing, inefficient taxocrats for an answer? Please, I’d rather spend my waiting time toe tapping in a Minneapolis men’s room.

As it stands, most of the problems with the airlines lie in part or whole with the FAA and their antiquated air traffic control system. Everything they’ve touched in the field of air travel, and every other field, come to think of it, has been a predictable disaster.


I figure I’m back and I feel like bitching again, so if you’re interested, tune in often. I’ll be here.

Apparently Usama Bin Laden doesn’t understand that when he delivers speeches to the U. S. he strengthens America’s resolve to defeat him. This translates into increased support for Republicans and even more specifically, President Bush. When Usama speaks, the nation doesn’t want to hear a simultaneous surrender chorus from Generals Pelosi and Reid. The Dems lose much appeal on these reminders that we are under siege.

We have been promised a speech by the esteemed leader of Al Qaeda to be delivered on September 11.

Who has forgotten what Usama calls “The invasion of Manhattan?” Apparently, too many. The “invasion of Manhattan” was a bigger invasion than that of Pearl Harbor when Americans were as serious as their leaders about defending her boarders.

Run Politicians, run! Scared to death of reminding Americans of the threats we live under, they run toward certain reelection rather than increased security for their constituents.

But why run scared now? In 1999 the British and American press enthusiastically embraced President Clinton’s invasion of Serbians, a people in an area that never once threatened the U.S. or any of her allies.

Yet when Clinton fabricated an ethnic cleansing of Muslim Albanians by Serbs, not the New York Times, nor the Mirror (UK) or any other major, liberal allied media outlets lifted a finger to investigate the whys or the seriousness of such an illegal and unprovoked action as bombing Serbia. To be sure, the Serbs were not totally innocent, but their actions were small potatoes compared to what was happening on the world stage in 1999.

Let’s review. In the Kosovo Province of Yugoslavia, Muslim Albanians complained of violence from the area known as Serbia. Clinton – needing a legacy – seized the opportunity to tag the disturbance as ethnic cleansing, comparing himself in his autobiography to the hypothetical leader who would listen to Winston Churchill and be the one who would have stopped Hitler before he had a chance to engage in his murderous genocide.

Did anyone in the mainstream media question the action? Actually, virtually everyone of any note in the leftstream media enthusiastically cheered Clinton for stepping in.

In fact, nearly every media account of what was going on in the Balkans omitted the fact that the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) was murdering Serbian civilians and Albanians with some regularity and brutality in an effort to do what Clinton said the Serbs were doing. The Clinton Administration called the KLA, as recently as 1997, a “terrorist organization.”

But in 1999, when Clinton was worried about a legacy (beyond Monica Lewinsky), these people were suddenly our friends. The KLA was trying to force the Serbs to agree to making Kosovo an independent State or annexing it to neighboring Albania. Terms the Serbs understandably could not accept.

Now Clinton wanted to bomb the Serbs in an effort to embrace the cause of the “terrorist” KLA. Even though the Serbs accepted very trying conditions put forth by NATO in order to keep the peace, the bar was raised to an unacceptable level, by everyone’s measure; so high that the administration admitted it was made artificially high in order to make the Serbs look noncompliant.

The Clinton administration regularly embraced fabricated casualty figures to advance its agenda and gain public acceptance. In one press release, 500,000 Kosovo Albanians had been killed by the Yugoslav army. This is a figure Clinton never bothered to object to in the interest of truth. He went along with several other exaggerated accounts in concert with the American and British liberal press. The real number turned out to be about 4,000 including those killed by NATO and KLA actions.

Another account called the Trepca mines “another Auschwitz” even though later inspections turned up not one body and no evidence of atrocities. Yet Clinton went along because it justified his “cause.” Another so called “atrocity” site was supposed to be found in the city of Ljubenic, where there were supposed to be 350 bodies buried. Seven were found.

Yet Clinton bombed. And he bombed the Serbs some more. He bombed the Serbs despite Congress's rejection of the act. When presented to Congress for a resolution, Congress rejected the idea and refused to authorize Clinton to bomb. Clinton bombed anyway for two more months.

(As I recall, the U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved an invasion of Iraq.)

Where was the outcry from the press in 1999?! Where was the outcry from the American people? I’ll tell you where the latter was; they were so mislead and misinformed as to what was really going on, the American public, by design of the American and British press, knew little if any of the facts. They were ignorant…blissfully as far as Clinton was concerned.

And Clinton continued to bomb. John Pilger reported in The Guardian that eighteen hospitals and clinics were destroyed. 200 Nurseries, schools, clinics and students’ dormitories were destroyed or damaged together with housing estates, hotels, libraries, youth centers, museums, churches and fourteenth century monasteries.

The American media remained in lockstep with the Clinton administration. Historian Thomas E. Woods, Jr. called it “one of the worst cases of yellow journalism in recent memory, in which the Western press almost without exception portrayed the conflict as a simple matter of good against evil.”

Pope John Paul II described it as an “act of diabolical retribution.”

So what happened? After the bombing the KLA began a massive ethnic cleansing campaign of its own against all non-Albanians. More Serbs were killed than Albanians had before the conflict. Serbs were forced from their homes with more than 200,000 fleeing Kosovo. In Kosovo’s capital city of Pristina, 120 Serbs remain out of an original population of 40,000. That’s right, 120! And they live in desperate fear from the Albanian Muslims.

In addition to the Serbs, 100,000 Roma Gypsies were driven out of Kosovo during the KLA’s ethnic cleansing program.

So Clinton wanted to advance the “liberation” of people (the KLA) who engaged in massive ethnic cleaning, leaving in the wake an extremely strong and violent Muslim presence in the region. According to Woods, a UN official described the situation thus: “Kristallnacht is underway in Kosovo. What is happening in Kosovo must unfortunately be described as a program against Serbs.”

Since NATO took control of the province, the few Serbs still living there have watched thousands of their homes looted or destroyed and 150 Christian churches and monasteries destroyed, says Woods.

Mr. Woods goes on to say, “There is the real Clinton legacy in Kosovo.”

I’ll say it as I’ve said it before; other than for ignorance, where was the outrage then and why the outrage now? Why now, after over 3,000 innocent civilians were killed in the “invasion of Manhattan” do the accomplished Generals Pelosi and Reid earn any semblance of credence from the American citizenry? Ignorance, that’s why!

Democrats presented, and President Bush signed into law last Sunday, an updated and more powerful version of the wiretap bill that the Democrats made a whole lot of noise about, and against, before the 2006 elections.

The President signed into law a bill giving government even greater powers to allow investigators to monitor international calls and emails without warrants.

The “Protect America Act of 2007” allows government to listen in on communications between people in the U.S. and overseas if the target of the surveillance is outside the country.

In December, 2005, before the Dems took control of Congress, California Senator Diane Feinstein had this to say about the less intrusive eavesdropping methods in use at the time; “(This)…calls into question the integrity and credibility of our Nation’s commitment to the rule of law.”

It’s amazing how a dose of reality and the burden of real decision making can put your political decisions on a different course.

Here’s another example of how the real deal can smack some idiotic campaign trash-talk back into a candidate’s “say anything to get elected” mouth. Remember how the Democrats were promising everyone with a sandwich board manufactured by the Party, and no job to keep them from marching for the cameras, that they would get us out of Iraq? Here’s what they have to say now according to the Sunday New York Times:

John Edwards would keep troops in the region to intervene in an Iraqi genocide and be prepared for military action if violence spills into other countries.

Hillary Clinton would leave residual forces to fight terrorism and to stabilize the Kurdish region in the north.

In public appearances, Hillary often says, “If this president does not end this war before he leaves office, when I am president, I will.” Then she confirms recently to the New York Times, when reminded of an interview with the paper in March, that there were “remaining vital national security interests in Iraq” that would require continued deployment of American troops.

Barrack Hussein Obama would leave a military presence of as-yet unspecified size in Iraq to provide security for American personnel, fight terrorism and train Iraqis.


And there’s this quote, according to The New York Times: “We’ve got to be prepared to control a civil war if it starts to spill outside the borders of Iraq,” John Edwards, who has run hard against the war, said at a Democratic debate in Chicago this week. “And we have to be prepared for the worst possibility that you never hear anyone talking about, which is the possibility that genocide breaks out and the Shi’a try to systematically eliminate the Sunni. As president of the United States, I would plan and prepare for all those possibilities.”

A “possibility that you never hear anyone talking about?” He ought to peek out from behind his wife’s apron from time to time and listen to the folks, not to mention the Administration. Oh, that’s right; he’s too busy working with the poor folks to be bothered.

Maybe the public is finally catching on. The recent Democratic debate on MSNBC, a network that author, commentator and former CBS newsman, Barnard Goldberg calls “the network equivalent of the witness protection program,” drew less than a million viewers. Yawn.


Environmentalists are already exploiting the recent mining accident as a launch pad for an anti-coal agenda. Sick!

The producers of ABC’s new comedy “Cavemen” had to reshoot the pilot episode in response to cries of racism from reporters.

This is a new low in this pansy-ass, cry-baby, Victims-R-Us, liberal-infested, love-anyone-who-hates-America, hate-anything-American, creepy society we’ve become. Jeez, people, lighten up!

My reaction may seem a bit like I just can’t get through step 8 of over-reactors anonymous, but I have a real hard time containing myself anymore when I’m reminded how wimped out this country is.


"They're looking for me, to like trip, so they can be like, 'Oh Lindsay's wasted and driving drunk.' And that's not it. I wouldn't violate. ... I'm much more responsible than that." - Lindsay Lohan, in her Elle Magazine interview 36 hours before her July 24 arrest for drunk driving and possession of cocaine, according to the New York Daily News.


The far left Web site,, held a forum Saturday for the Democratic presidential hopefuls. All but one of the “contestants” were present at the event for liberal bloggers near and far.

DailyKos is a lovely site that posts serious hate speech. So serious is it that if anyone not calling themselves a liberal Democrat made comments like the crap that is posted on that site, they would be summarily drummed into PC submission, crucified and literally given a front row seat to watch their careers destroyed.

Here are a few examples of statements posted on the site, according to Bill O’Reilly of Fox News:

- “The world would be better off without him,” regarding White House Press Secretary Tony Snow after he announced his cancer had returned.
- “The Pope is a primate”
- “Evangelicals are nutcases”
- “Better luck next time,” after an assassination plot against Vice President Dick Cheney in Afghanistan was thwarted.
- “Some attacks against coalition forces in Iraq are legitimate”

Also at the convention, a uniformed army reservist who served in Iraq challenged a panel to prove by any means that violence had not decreased since the recent military “surge.” He was booed, jeered and escorted out of the building. So much for reason. I guess they can’t let a little serious debate from a soldier who's been there interfere with their thuggish hate rhetoric.


This weekend I went to see “The Bourne Ultimatum” at the cinema with my son and daughter. First of all, it was a great action thriller in league with the first two “Bourne” movies. I highly recommend it to Bourne fans everywhere.

Best part of the experience, though, was during the previews and promotions before the movie began. Along with the previews and usual ads, a recruiting piece by, and for the United States Army was shown. I looked around the theatre for reaction from the mostly twenty-something packed house, and then a great thing happened…The theatre erupted in spontaneous applause in obvious support for the Army spot. Very, very heartwarming! I wish the Kos folks and the Dem contestants could have been there.

So who loses as the Democrats cruise to what they imagine is certain victory in 2008 in both the White House and the Capitol?

Many will reactively think the Republicans lose. But do they? I remember a liberal colleague who bristled while expressing her concern to me in 2001 when Bush took office, wondering whether the country could survive a Republican President as well as Congressional majority.

My answer was simply this. It doesn’t matter. Perception is everything and whatever happens on their watch, the Republicans will be blamed. I told her that they will be blamed and they will pay, which will eventually lead to a majority in the other direction.

There’s nothing prophetic about that. It’s just common sense…Ass backwards common sense, which is the only kind that seems to work for the confused and uninformed electorate in this country.

Now with Hillary or B. Hussein, or both, racing for the White House next year, history will repeat itself as it does term after term after term.

So back to the original questions; who loses? The main constituency of the Democrats, that’s who loses. With the general public seething at the Republicans, deservedly or not, the Dems are getting away with ignoring their base.

Certainly the GOP screwed up big time and deservedly got tossed from office. They got arrogant, fat and imperial. The people spoke in numbers in November and summarily booted them out. Did they deserve it? Hell, yeah!

Too bad though that the vast majority of voters I spoke with didn’t have a clue as to why they hated the Republicans or what they thought the Democrats would do. They just wanted “change,” which they think they got.

The Dems gave us a peek at how they are treating their constituency when Newt Gingrich last Sunday singled out the Detroit school system as a disaster that is crippling young Americans. He pointed out the failures of that system in how they only graduate 22 percent of freshmen on time, citing the Gates Foundation. Fully 75 percent of Detroit public school students do not graduate on time, which leads to a 72 percent unemployment rate among African American males in the city and a 60 percent chance of going to jail by the time they reach their mid 30s.

The official reaction? Very predictable by anyone’s honest measure. District officials were quick to defend the fine job they’re doing with (to?) the children of Detroit. The city’s largest employer (city government being the second largest) is fraught with waste, bureaucracy, absenteeism, cronyism and overall incompetence…obviously.

Where is the Democratic Party? They won’t say anything to criticize the school system. School districts, along with most government entities are union, protected by archaic rules and tend to vote Democrat so they can stay safe and inefficient.

The Democrats won’t chance offending their core constituencies simply because keeping these groups status quo, keeps the Dems in power. And that is tragic!

Are the Republicans any better? No! And they’re just as scared of attempting to do anything for fear of alienating the very people who won’t vote for them anyway.

So the losers, my friends, are the folks who lose time after time. The so-called underclass that Democrats claim to champion, and that mistakenly think are being championed by the Democrats.

If the Democrats were to get serious about caring for Americans, they would lose their power. And that’s simply not an option…for them.

To quote Newt, “The crisis is simply a failure of citizenship.”

What a shame….


Ps. I love Texas! I spend a fair amount of time in the Lone Star State and absolutely love it! Though it’s somewhat embarrassing having affection for a state from where the Dixie Chicks came.

I echo Jeff Babbin’s question in a recent column in which he asks who, exactly, are the 14 percent of Americans who approve of the job Congress is doing?

The lowest approval rating the last Republican Congress received, before being summarily, and rightfully, tossed from office, was 24 percent in August of 2006 according to a Fox News poll.

Could it be that this Congress, after all their ballyhooing and hype about doing things differently and more honestly, haven’t accomplished a thing yet? Could it be that they helped themselves to a nice raise for doing nothing since the November elections?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came into office promising massive reform. I’ve yet to witness any meaningful reform. The House, which averaged less than two work days a week in 2006, was given January 8th off – after less than a week in office – to watch the collegiate national championship football game…compliments of Mrs. Pelosi. Does this make them look serious?

Special interests still (and presumably always will) rule the halls of Congress. These people are not working for you, as you showed up in droves to elect them to, but for the same old army of lobbyists and fellow back-scratchers. Imperialistic crooks and losers still roam freely about the Capitol.

Speaker Pelosi apparently isn’t serious about cleaning up corruption either, or she wouldn’t try to protect fellow members from investigation. In the recent case of Louisiana Congressman William Jefferson who was caught on tape by the FBI accepting a $100,000 bribe, she took exception to the FBI searching Jefferson’s office. She and former Speaker Dennis Hastert both tried to claim documents seized at the Congressman’s office were taken illegally, citing “separation of powers.”

So Pelosi is obviously very interested in protecting here cronies from investigation. Boy, that’s serious reform! Seriously, the gall!

West Virginia Democratic Congressman Alan Mollohan recently stepped down from the House ethics committee because of a probe by federal agents looking into his steering funds into nonprofit groups he founded.

That’s right folks, the former ranking member of the House ETHICS committee!

According to Dick Morris, former advisor to President Clinton, Congressman Mollohan’s personal assets rose from less than $500,000 to more than $8 million just between 2001 and 2005. And that’s on a $162,500 congressional salary. He steered $5 million in federal funds to one of his nonprofit organizations. His comment? He saw “no conflict of interest.” In the past decade, he directed more than $250 million to nonprofit organizations he created in his native state, according to Morris. You might want to reread that.

But he’s not alone. Here are a few more of your legislatures under recent investigation:

Sen. Ted Stevens (AK), Rep. Don Young (AK), Rep. John Doolittle (CA), Rep. Jerry Lewis (CA), Rep. Gary Miller (CA) and Rep. Rick Renzi (AZ), all Republicans.

You wanted change when you went to the polls in November? You rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic.

Private weather forecaster WSI said on Tuesday that they expect the 2007 hurricane season to be a bit milder than originally expected. Isn’t that something? I’m shocked! Amazingly, since Bush took office, global warming, according to the great climatologist with a degree in political science and who barely graduated college, Al Gore, and all his lackeys, say there will be, and has been, an increase in hurricane activity. Especially since hurricane Katrina, which certainly was a born of a conspiracy involving Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and George Bush? But there’s one annoying little problem. There hasn’t been an increase in hurricane activity, despite the hopes and prayers of the former Vice President and current sore loser.

Now, slightly into hurricane season, due to little, if any, reportable named storm activity in the Atlantic, the forecast, just like last year, must be downgraded.

It’s painfully apparent that the forecasters in Gore’s camp will predict a more severe than usual hurricane season every year until the dire warning comes true. No need to explain the normality of the weather, just go crazy over the one hurricane season worth noting, when and if it happens.

This, like so much other bull that comes out of the global warming…err, climate change alarmists is reckless. Chief in the complicity of anyone who needs funding and is afraid of Gore’s reputation sliming machine…a’ la The Weather Channel, or as I prefer to call it, the Global Warming Channel, etc.

When Gore pushed his Oscar winning film, “An Inconvenient Truth,” on the unsuspecting and gullible public, no one, it seems, had the gumption to challenge the junk science put forth.

Challenges to wit; the planet is not warming; only the northern hemisphere is. The southern hemisphere apparently didn’t get the memo. There are many hypothetical reasons for this truth, but they can be addressed in another edition. Also, a precursor to the most recent spike in average global temperatures was the collapse of the Soviet Union between 1988 and 1991. During said collapse, Siberian climate and temperature reading stations were abandoned or put out of commission. Siberia being above the Arctic Circle, the “average” global temp should go up by any moron’s math. Will anyone take this information into consideration while, before or after they view “An Inconvenient Truth?”

Oh well, like I said, this can, and will be, revisited in the near future.

If you’re looking for anything revolutionary to come out of Monday night’s CNN / YouTube debate, forget about it. Outwardly teased as a debate featuring questions from the YouTube nation, it will, no doubt, strictly be a CNN / Democrat love fest. And here’s why.

Anderson Cooper, one of CNN’s resident Democrat partisans, will “moderate” the debate. John Roberts of CNN’s weeklong “CNN/YouTube Debate Preview” said (55 minutes into the show) that CNN will be choosing which questions will make it to the Contestants. That’s right, CNN, not YouTubers.

CNN Senior Vice President and Washington Bureau Chief, David Bohrman, told Los Angeles Times’ Paul Brownfield that “We will make responsible editorial decisions about what will air during the debate.” Anyone with half an honest mind knows what that means. This is a CNN love-fest…er, debate.

Another reason this won’t be a debate more open than any other is the cozy relationships between news organizations and campaigns. CNN wouldn’t jeopardize its access to a major candidate’s campaign by letting some crazed ordinary American ask an honest, probing question. Oh my God, the implications of such a thing! The real public having fair access to a presidential candidates’ debate?! Think again.

LA Times’ Brownfield said “Monday night’s debate promises at least to expose a clash of cultures, as the grungy, youth-oriented YouTube meets the buttoned-down campaign talking point.” Don’t count on it, except possibly in the initial naivety of the questioners. But CNN will sift through the questions to find enough intelligent, yet predictable, questions about universal healthcare, Darfur, Iraq, big oil, corporate profits and all the other “hot points” of the politically and generally uneducated.

One more thing you can take to the bank; the Democratic candidates will be sucking up to the misspent youths of this country big time. Will they succeed? They will barely have to try. But as much as they like to change their stores and contradict themselves, look to some candidates, maybe most, to trip over their own condescension.

Republican Senator David Vitter of Louisiana was recently forced to admit publicly that he used a prostitute because his name was on the client list of the so called “D.C. Madam.” Well, big deal!

I’m sure some of my more conservative friends are about to scream at me for being “pro-prostitution,” but Oh Well, that’s their discomfort. The point, as Mac Johnson of "Human Events" has alluded, is that when Democratic Congressman-for-life Barney Frank of Massachusetts was busted for cavorting with a known prostitute and actually letting the male prostitute run his business out of Rep. Frank’s home, Frank just had to tell us he was homosexual, and the press coverage just went away.

Now let’s be clear about my views on homosexuality. To the satisfaction of most folks and to the horrors of the religious right, I couldn’t care less about someone’s sexual orientation. I believe some people are born with a predisposition toward either and they choose to live their lives according to what comes naturally. I also don’t believe this is flawed as that belief, in my opinion, would be calling God’s plan flawed. That last point assuming that God knows all present and future, and all is His will. So someone will say that just because someone does something bad that I must be condoning it because I think it is God’s will. Well, get a grip. I don’t think homosexuality is inherently bad. Anymore than I think bad people who are heterosexual are bad because of their heterosexuality.

With that said, the topic isn't worth any more ink. Good people are good people.

It’s really too bad that I actually had to explain that. But I know this site has a variety of readership from across the country, and they bear all stripes…including self righteousness. So especially to the latter, C’est la vie.

So back to my point. Mac Johnson had it right; all Senator Vitter should have had to do was declare his heterosexuality and if there is any consistency in the logic of the press, Democrats, Republicans or nuts of any flavor, he should be getting a pass, based on past performance of the above referenced proud organizations.

So by the logic applied to the Frank episode, Senator Vitter should be able to proclaim his heterosexuality -- proudly, I might add -- and move on without being further harangued.

Frank was letting his lover run a gay escort service from his home. Vitter paid for a heterosexual escort service. Frank, by simply explaining he was a homosexual, was treated as a victim. Vitter, by explaining he is an out-of-control heterosexual, should be vindicated as such. And both should be able to, as Johnson put it, declare their diversity.

Do you think it will work that way?

University of Alberta scientists have finally solved the game of checkers. They used 200 computers working since 1989 to analyze all the possible board combinations, about 5 billion scenarios. It is said the computer program cannot be beaten although it can be played to a draw. Wow! A game I thought was so simple. In fact I thought it couldn’t be won…that’s how little I know about stuff like that.

COW FARTS ARE PEOPLE FARTS Thursday said we should stop eating beef to save the planet. By their hocus pocus, raising “2.2 lbs. of beef is responsible for greenhouse emissions that have the same effect as the carbon dioxide released by an ordinary car traveling at 50 miles per hour for 155 miles.” Or the amount of energy consumed by a 100 watt light bulb for 200 days. OOOOKay?!

Some of our “environmentalist” friends in the Park Service are trying to protect one of our national treasures, the Everglades National Park. They want to keep much of it off limits so that future generations can enjoy not going there because it is…off limits. Huh?

I’m still waiting for the newly elected Democratic Congress to deliver on one of their many, many campaign promises – none of which I can tell has been kept –for a new energy policy. They’ve been talking for over 30 years about reducing our dependency on foreign oil. On the first Earth Day in 1970 the U.S. depended about one quarter on foreign oil. Today, we depend on about 60 percent foreign oil. Yet, there will be no drilling or loosening of refinery restrictions on their watch. Apparently, only China and Cuba are allowed to drill off our coasts.


RFk for President? Our own little slice of Cuba right here in D.C.

Congressman Keith Ellison, a Democrat from Minnesota, used a speaking engagement with Atheists for Human Rights, to compare President George W. Bush to Adolph Hitler. He also compared the events of September 11, 2001, and resulting Administration policies to the burning of the Reichstag, in Nazi Germany. The Reichstag is the building that housed the Parliament of the German Empire.

The Nazi’s used the burning of the building in 1933 to suspend constitutional rights in Germany. What Congressman Ellison was saying was that the events of 9/11 were conveniently used for the same purpose. This, of course, would infer the U.S. Government, and the Bush Administration in particular, staged the attack to justify “abuses” such as “the taint of Iraq, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, FISA violations, Patriot Act encroachments and other Bush administration failures.” (Ellison’s quote, not mine.)


Damn, I’m sick of politicians, pundits and idiots of all stripes comparing U.S. officials and the current administration to Hitler or the Nazis. How sickeningly reprehensible!

My Father served in the European theatre during World War II and before he died, told me a story of an incident he could never wipe from his mind. He was involved in liberating a concentration camp and remembers finding a man hanging by his testicles. This little memory remained seared onto his brain for the rest of his life, a memory of the horrors he, thankfully, only had to witness after the fact. It bothered him to tell me, and he chose not to verbalize the days around that event any further.

To call anything American, Nazi, or any American, Hitler, does a strange and horrid disservice to the millions of people affected by the horrors of the Nazi regime. The horrendously, impossible to ponder atrocities committed by the Nazis cannot be easily described or referred to. Any tiny-minded attempt to compare anything to that period in history is fools’ territory and surefire attestation to one’s lack of history and, in fact, general education.

For such talk to pass without wide and thunderous condemnation speaks to the disgusting and ignorantly misguided complicity of the press.

As the first Muslim elected to Congress, Ellison is not making a very impressive mark.

The Nazis murdered the disabled and deformed, tortured people in the name of medical research, enslaved millions and attempted to “cleanse” Germany of “inferior races.” They imprisoned, enslaved, shipped, shot, gassed, hacked, starved, hanged, incinerated, raped, robbed and humiliated into oblivion children, the infirmed, women, senior citizens, the weak and the brilliant. They didn’t invent genocide, they gave it new meaning. They brainwashed their own weak-minded and ignorant citizens into marching to their deaths in the name of their Fuehrer.

Rep. Ellison joins Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill, Rick Santorum, R-PA, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-AL, and Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W. VA (himself an Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan) and many, many other elected officials in using this type of terminology to describe various current policies.

The aforementioned creeps and their ilk in the public domain are sick sons-of-bitches that need not only history lessons, but censure in a very public forum. As far as I’m concerned, it’s inexcusable. Tolerable, because of the liberty we fought Germany to defend, but disgustingly abusive in it’s propensity for harm in watering down the cruelest of eras in history.

The Godforsaken trash heap of humanity that governed Germany from 1933 to 1945 needs to be kept in a context only the darkest of imaginations can conjure. Hitler and the Nazis need to be kept for all of eternity where they presently are…the history books.

The people who throw these epithets at fellow Americans? These are truly people who hate. They hate in the worst possible way, ignorantly.

The following comment was posted by a blogger on the ABC News Web site on Friday. I happened upon it and I think his comments speak to the heart of what’s ailing a lot of Americans today, and puts in perspective the whiney nature of most. Please read on;

Is it that we have electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Is our unhappiness the result of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter? Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job? Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery store at any time and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in the last year?

Maybe it is the ability to drive from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean without having to present identification papers as we move through each state? Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter?

I guess having thousands of restaurants with varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough. Or could it be that when we wreck our car, emergency workers show up and provide services to help all and even send a helicopter to take you to the hospital.

Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent of Americans who own a home. You may be upset with knowing that in the unfortunate case of a fire, a group of trained firefighters will appear in moments and use top notch equipment to extinguish the flames thus saving you, your family and your belongings.

Or if, while at home watching one of your many flat screen TVs, a burglar or prowler intrudes, an officer equipped with a gun and a bullet-proof vest will come to defend you and your family against attack or loss. This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods where 90 percent of teenagers own cell phones and computers.

How about the complete religious, social and political freedoms we enjoy that are the envy of everyone in the world? Maybe that is what has 67 percent of you folks unhappy.

Fact is, we are the largest group of ungrateful, spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the U.S. yet has a great disdain for its citizens. They see us for what we are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain about what we don't have, and what we hate about the country instead of thanking the good Lord we live here.

I know, I know. What about the president who took us into war and has no plan to get us out? The president who has a measly 31 percent approval rating? Is this the same president who guided the nation in the dark days after 9/11? The president that cut taxes to bring an economy out of recession? Could this be the same guy who has been called every name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful brats safe from terrorist attacks?

The commander in chief of an all-volunteer army that is out there defending you and me? Did you hear how bad the President is on the news or a talk show? Did this news affect you so much, make you so unhappy you couldn't take a look around for yourself and see all the good things and be glad?

Think about it......are you upset at the President because he actually caused you personal pain OR is it because the "Media" told you he was failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful behind every day.

Make no mistake about it. The troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have died for your freedom. There is currently no draft in this country. They didn't have to go. They are able to refuse to go and end up with either a ''general'' discharge, an ''other than honorable'' discharge or, worst case scenario, a ''dishonorable'' discharge after a few days in the brig.

So why then the flat-out discontentment in the minds of 69 percent of Americans? Say what you want but I blame it on the media. If it bleeds it leads and they specialize in bad news. Everybody will watch a car crash with blood and guts. How many will watch kids selling lemonade at the corner? The media knows this and media outlets are for-profit corporations.

They offer what sells, and when criticized, try to defend their actions by "justifying" them in one way or another. Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like O.J. Simpson to write a book about how he didn't kill his wife, but if he did he would have done it this way......Insane!

Stop buying the negativism you are fed everyday by the media. Shut off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New York Times for the bottom of your bird cage. Then start being grateful for all we have as a country. There is exponentially more good than bad.

Guess what Norway started in 1969? They started aggressive off-shore drilling for oil. Guess what else? Since they weren’t a bunch of pansy ass, whiney, save-the-sea horses crackpots, they found it. Lots of it. So much, in fact, that today they have the highest number of millionaires of any country in the world. And we’re talking dollar millionaires, the kind that we know and aspire to be. One of every 84 citizens in Norway is worth over a million dollars, not counting the value of their primary residence. There are only 4.6 million Norwegians, but 54,810 of them are dollar millionaires! Let’s divide that by three to allow for households and one in every 28 households is worth over a million dollars not including their primary residence. And -- this is big, so listen -- they’re not dependent on Middle East oil, politics, Jihad, corruption, etc., etc., etc.

Imagine the possibilities if we could tap the huge reserves in and around this country! ANWR, anyone?

L.D. offers the following link as an example of how anyone can make money on global warming, any time, anywhere. Open the link and have a read.



A state Chinese TV station went undercover for a story exposing a tainted food product. Of course they didn’t have to look too hard to find one.

They infiltrated a company that makes steamed buns. Only these steamed buns were filled with chopped cardboard, softened with an industrial chemical and flavored with fatty pork to make it look and taste like meat. There is apparently no shortage of tainted products coming from China, from buns to dog food to soy sauce made with human hair. I’m glad I never liked Chinese food!

I was challenged by “Anonymous” to; before I got off too deep on Michael Moore, watch the Sanjay Gupta “news” report that set him off. I did watch it and I appreciate what Anonymous is getting at (see comment on July 9 blog). That said, considering the amount of MM’s crap I’ve had the displeasure of reading and watching, I find it very hard to come to his aid when he’s complaining about a hatchet job on his hatchet job.

How can anyone think, even for a millisecond, much less live on the hope, that government (healthcare) can even remotely replace something that is governed by profit, with something that people have no incentive to do their best with? My, oh my, someone tell me one thing that government has gotten right over private industry! I’m dying to know. And if MM and his Democrat buddies have their way, helped along with the propaganda they are used to slinging, and which the American public so thirstily absorbs, than I will quite literally be dying to know. Man, I’ve had some serious health issues and accidents in my life. I shudder to think how long ago I would have checked out if my well-being was in the hands of the 511,000 elected buffoons in this country!

Had to get that out of my system!

No wait! There’s more. How on earth can anyone think of socialized medicine as “free” healthcare? Let’s pretend the government has control over it. Where in the hell do you think the money comes from? Think of your taxes increasing by a much larger number than you pay in insurance premiums today. Call that free? Then think about how bloated the system would be with excess everything. Think about how big a bureaucracy it would be just in the sheer number of employees. This part the Dems particularly love…more government employees, more people at the trough, more Democrat voters…the perfect, perpetual election and power machine. This is the government that pays farmers to not grow food! You want to entrust them with your insulin or your chemo? And don’t try telling me Medicare works. It’s a disaster in its inefficiency and drives up the cost of healthcare for the rest of the industry.

Okay, that’s enough!

Where are Amnesty International and the anti-Abu Ghraib prison, Hollywood crowd? Iran stoned a man to death Tuesday for allegedly (a word we like in this country) committing adultery. He was buried to his waist, hands tied behind his back and stoned to death. Women are buried up to their necks, including their arms, when they get stoned to death. Granted, it’s not as bad as verbal abuse or throwing foam footballs at prisoners and showing them pictures of a woman’s breast, but stoning is pretty bad! And not a word from the freak brigade, jet-setting dopes who want me to change my light bulbs and turn off the water while I’m brushing my teeth.

Robert Greenwald, the man behind the documentary “OutFoxed” along with left wingers and the Sierra Club are asking sponsors of Fox News, particularly Home Depot, to pull spots from the network because it doesn’t tow the leftist line of global warming absolutism. Add to that Robert Kennedy, Jr., calling global warming dissenters traitors and saying they should be charged with treason, and you may want to set your alarm for 2:00 am just to make sure you lose a little sleep about where this kookiness is taking us.

Why are these people so afraid of debate? That in itself is suspect.

Michael Moore went Russell Crowe on Wolf Blitzer Monday calling CNN and the “major media outlets” biased, accusing them of not presenting the facts regarding his film. Apparently, anyone who disagrees with his absolutely biased and pathetically left-handed film, “Sicko,” is indeed themselves biased. And if you want to question the charges he makes in his film, you must be a shill for pharmaceutical companies. You know those horrible companies that are keeping many of us alive! Then politically correct Moore mocked the pronunciation of CNN chief medical reporter, Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s name. Wonderful, wonderful human being.

Katie Couric said she did indeed slap the hell out of a CBS news editor’s arm, admittedly in anger, for writing the word ‘sputum’ into a script. Let’s see…Katie doesn’t have a problem broadcasting her colon to a sometimes curious, sometimes disgusted national television audience. But let’s not say ‘sputum’ on her newscast.

Next year, Russia will begin construction on a 2,500 mile pipeline that will eventually help deliver oil to China from pristine Siberia. According to Russian Energy Minister, Viktor Khristenko, the pipeline is meant to ease China’s dependence on Middle East oil. The Russians and Chinese get it, so why are so many people in this country against drilling in, and piping from, ANWR? Ignorance and spineless politicians putting their careers before national interests, is why.

Okay, okay, I’m tired of the Live Earth crap, but here’s one more quote worth passing on. This one is from Neil McCormick of
In response to Madonna’s screaming “If you wanna save the planet, jump up and down!” Neil asked, “Can global warming be stopped by an out-of-breath, middle aged, super-rich narcissist in a leotard and high heels?” Good question, Neil, but sadly, only some of us know the answer!

To borrow a favorite saying from author Bernard Goldberg, I’d rather do time in a Saudi Prison then watch an episode of The View. Same goes for me regarding the Live Earth events held on Saturday. But I sacrificed in the interest of fair reporting.

Here are a few of the hypocritical facts facing the not so environmentally friendly “stars” and what their performances cost the Earth, as printed in Saturday’s The Daily Mail:

- 223,623 miles. The most conservative estimate of the miles being flown by the “superstars” to these events.
- Fuel burned by a family car in one year. Same as is burned in one hour in a Gulfstream jet.
- 31,500 tons. The amount of carbon emissions generated by the concerts, according to John Buckley of who specializes in these calculations.
- 74,500 tons. Footprint when you factor in the television audience.
- 1,025 tons. Waste generated at the stadiums.
- Mercedes Maybach, two Range Rovers, an Audit A8 and a Mini Cooper. Vehicles in Madonna’s garage.
- 1,018 tons. The size of Madonna’s carbon footprint in a year.
- 10 tons. The carbon footprint an average British citizen makes in a year.
- 59 tons. The amount of rubbish from food and drink consumption at just the Wembley event.
- 9 times the circumference of the Earth. The distance these acts will fly to and from these events.
- 1 ton. The amount of carbon used by the ex-wife of Andrew Lloyd Weber to be flown to Shanghai to sing at the even in China (one way).
- Trade Unions. They have blocked Live Earth’s attempts to recycle anything at New York’s Giant’s Stadium
- “Every Day is a Winding Road.” Hit that Sheryl Crow makes a bundle on by promoting four wheel drive vehicles.

“Live Earth is encouraging ‘citizens of the world’ to take small steps: share a car, plant a shrub, turn off a light or hang out washing instead of using a dryer,” according to The Daily Mail.

I’ve got an idea. How about if Phil Collins, Madonna, Bon Jovi & Co., just stayed home!

Here are a few quotes from The Sunday Times regarding the Wembley concert:
“…few people gave a damn.”
“A fairly boring concert with equally boring participants, save for Madonna belting the last tunes.”
“…broadly middle of the road audience.”
“It did what it said on the poster – but no more. The acts who answered the call from Al Gore’s people to play at Wembley Stadium were a bit short on superstar clout.”
“Following Al Gore’s televised lecture on climate change, Nutini’s youthful rocking r'n’b vocal reminded us that politicians need musicians more than musicians need them.”
“As the halfway point beckoned, the event needed a serious lift.”
“The audience applauded, but soon afterwards was seen amusing themselves with Mexican waves.”
“… the pace flagged.”
“Madge (Madonna) stole the show…more vividly than all the preceding hours of slogans and lectures.”


The members of one of the dufus groups in New York were wearing various slogans and other childishly hand painted nouns and verbs on their clothing with lines and Xs through them. One of the dope’s shirt read “Dick Chaney” with a line through the name. That’s right, he spelled Dick Cheney wrong! I’m embarrassed for the youth of today, though they will never have a clue as to why.

How can so many of our people (young and old) be so naively screwed up and have no ambition to do a little research for themselves? Blind to the incredible amount of money industry giants -- the very industry giants they think they are fighting -- are making by being in bed with the environmental movement, particularly its leaders(Gore and Co.), they rock on, ignorantly sewing the seeds of destruction of capitalism and democracy. We are truly a country of blind sheep. Make no mistake – Green is the new Red, Comrade!

I confess…I’m pro-planet. I’m pro-Earth. I think we should support Earth, or should I say “The Planet.” Yeah! I guess that makes me a celebrity…or a politician, or a Democrat. Then again, I don’t care about global warming, so I guess I can’t be a celebrity or a politician OR a Democrat! I guess that makes me one of those whack-jobs who, for lack of caring, are going to throw the Earth off its axis, or otherwise end God’s creation as we now know it!

But I really don’t have to care and neither do you. We have countless rock stars needing career jumps to do all the “caring” for us.

They will conspicuously over consume and pollute the joint to do it, but they are acting for me and for you and any others out there, if there is indeed anyone else out there, who doesn’t give a crap!

Today (July 7), Ladies and Gentlemen, we have Live Earth. The global concert, held at eight venues including one on every continent (I guess Antarctica makes for a ninth venue) on this ailing planet.

It will surely be as effective as the other concerts held for various causes with no known intended result. I give you;

Live aid (1985) – Prompted by the Ethiopian famine of 1984/85, to help periled African nations pay their debts to evil Western banks, helping to alleviate starvation in Africa. Much of the money fell into the influence of the Derg military junta which enforced resettlement and “villagification” programs which killed between 50,000 and 100,000 people and displaced at least 3 million. Nice!

Farm Aid – I guess this one was to help keep farmers in subsidies. Apparently a huge success, as $171 billion will be paid (welfared) in direct farm subsidies over the next ten years.

Band Aid (1984) – No more hungry kids in Ethiopia?

Live 8 (2005) – To raise more awareness of issues that plague Africa…and the rehabilitation of aging rock stars’ careers.

Which leads us to…

Live Earth (2007-Today) – This one will stop global warming, I mean, “climate change,” so planet Earth can go on to be planet Earth for future generations of politicians and celebrities.

How about a bake sale for burkas?

How about this one: We can shame and defame our soldiers abroad to help bring about the end to war. Oh, wait a minute, that’s already been taken care of…celebrities, Democrats and more than a few Republicans already have a handle on that cause.

I suppose we could swim to raise awareness for the fishes in order to save the oceans. But sure enough, renowned oceanographer, environmentalist and scientist (and Cheers bartender), Ted Danson declared, circa 1987, that the oceans and the earth, would be dead in ten years if we didn’t drastically alter our lives, raise taxes and commit mass suicide because we are Americans. So whatever he did, it must have worked because last time I was on the coasts, the oceans, at least the two I have ready access to, were alive and well.

I now kneel and thank Almighty God for celebs and politicians, especially Al Gore, Rock Stars and pop white trash, Sheryl Crow. Because of them, we have not yet stolen Planet Earth from God and the cosmos!

On another note, John Edwards is campaigning to raise the minimum wage and put an end to poverty right here in America because haircuts apparently cost $1,200.00.

President Bush commuted the 30 month prison sentence of Lewis “Scooter” Libby yesterday. Big deal, considering he wants to pardon 12 million illegal aliens in the name of "immigration reform.”

I laughed out loud when I heard Hillary Clinton, with Bill by her side, say in response, “This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice."

My God, these people are psychopathically amazing!!!

President Clinton pardoned 459 people during his presidency, to his predecessor’s 77 pardons.

Here are a few of the crimes that were committed by the people Bill Clinton pardoned or commuted the sentences for. The whole list is too exhaustive for me to bore you with, but here are some of the crimes:

Conspiracy to counterfeit money, bank embezzlement, tax fraud and nonpayment, auto theft, pushing drugs, mail fraud, firearms convictions, LSD and other drug distribution, bank fraud, falsifying firearms records, insurance fraud, Medicaid fraud, bank robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, price fixing, blackmail, mutiny during wartime, destruction of military property, forgery of U.S. checks, possession of illegal explosives, conspiracy to damage property with illegal explosives, falsification of union records, transporting illegal aliens, bribery, money laundering, issuing worthless checks, food stamp fraud, illegal campaign contributions, passport fraud, conspiracy to commit racketeering, illegally importing animal skins, conspiracy to aid in prison escape. He also pardoned six Puerto Rican terrorists who were making bombs.

And let’s not forget this personal favorite, of which he was convicted…Perjury!


In the Sidney Morning Herald on Tuesday, Chee Chee Leung asserted that humans are using too much of the sun’s energy. Because we humans use so much energy, we rob plants of needed energy from the sun, stealing especially from corn production, which we need to make ethanol.

Are you still convinced the global warming crowd doesn’t use junk science?

Looking at Michael Moore, there is more than a small chance that he will be stricken by illness sooner, rather than later. Do you think Michael will go abroad for medical help?

Just Wondering,

Monday, July 2, 2007


It’s so hard to understand how our gutless, pandering and sometimes just plain ignorant elected officials can continue to push this ethanol scam with a clear conscience.

The promotion of this disastrous “alternative” to fossil fuels is costing you and me a fortune. Consider the increased prices of just a few of the products and commodities affected by mandated increases in corn production for the manufacture of ethanol.

Ethanol policies have driven the price of corn up to as high as $4.50 a bushel last week, from what was typically $2.00 to $2.50 a bushel.

More expensive corn drives up prices on many products we use. You would think that the higher prices would benefit farmers, but companies that produce seed, like Monsanto, have raised seed prices by 66 percent. Of course this helps all you shareholders in Monsanto stock, and good for you.

I’ve written about the evils of ethanol several times in these blogs but feel compelled to bring it up again once in a while because it eats at me so. As I’ve mentioned before, when President Bush mentioned ethanol during his State of the Union speech in January, I cringed. I knew, as many of you did, that gas prices would be up the next day and continue to climb. And they did. What other prices have soared as a result of the ethanol obsession?

Have you wondered why beef prices are as high as they have gotten? How about the increase in milk prices that we all screamed about? Shoot, let’s just think about the additional premium on land because of the ridiculously low yield of corn producing ethanol per acre.

So land, fuel and corn go up. Again, beef and milk prices. What else does corn effect? Poultry, pork, sugar (prices already controlled by artificial supports and tariffs), sweet goods, anything made with high fructose corn syrup, cheese, butter, all products made with any of the above, soft drinks, ice cream…the list goes on and on.

Were you paying attention to the tortilla riots in Mexico City last February?

How about taxes? On top of the federal and state taxes you pay on gasoline, let’s consider the following:
Ethanol blenders -- gas stations and suppliers – receive 51 cents a gallon in tax credits so ethanol can be competitive with gas. In other words, ethanol is so inefficient and expensive to make, we taxpayers have to give the companies 51 cents a gallon in tax credits to bring the price down enough to compete with gas.

There is a 54 cent tariff on imported ethanol, to make sure we can’t buy it cheap from other countries.

We taxpayers gave $340 million in subsidized loans to build ethanol plants, thanks to Jimmy Carter. The plants aren’t competitive enough for private industry to make money, so we taxpayers buck up to build them for someone else to make money on the product we support.

Make your head spin? Does mine!

We taxpayers contributed $70 Million in corn to ethanol producers, via Ronald Reagan’s Department of Agriculture.

The 2005 Energy bill mandates that gas companies buy ethanol. We force companies to buy this stuff because they wouldn’t touch it otherwise.

The current mandates have increased food prices by $14 billion dollars, according to a recent University of Iowa study, and our Democratic Congress wants to increase mandates by seven fold.

Because of mandates that compel gas companies to buy ethanol, prices on ethanol went up, raising gas prices by another 30 cents.

On performance: Ethanol is one third less powerful and efficient as gasoline so a gasoline and ethanol blend will get you fewer miles to the gallon than gasoline. So ethanol prices have to be artificially depressed (again with your tax dollars) to be cheaper than gasoline in order to get you comparable mileage for the same money.

It takes a lot of energy just to make the stuff. You have to grow the corn which means plowing, planting, fertilizing, watering, harvesting, grinding, soaking, distilling and trucking, since you can’t run ethanol though pipelines like gasoline.

Geez! And why is it we don’t want to drill for oil in this country to tap some of the biggest reserves on earth? Oh, that’s right, a super ignorant electorate that believes what these politicians are telling us.

I’m exhausted and depressed, and that’s just a little teeny bit of the story.

Rules being considered by the New York City Mayor’s Office of Film would ban people from using cameras in the City for more than half an hour. This would include people standing in line to visit sites such as the Empire State building. The Mayor’s office claims the ruling is targeted at filmmakers but tourists carrying cameras could be a target.

The rule prohibits the use of a camera for more that thirty minutes in a single location, defined as within 100 feet of the original shooting area. The rule is intentionally vague, according to the New York Civil Liberties Union. To use a camera for thirty minutes, one would have to obtain a permit from the City and carry $1 million dollars in liability insurance. The new rule would take effect toward the end of August.

Remember that if you’re planning a trip later this year to the Peoples Republic of New York, headed by Chairman Bloomberg.


A poll conducted June 23-25 by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research found that 52 percent of Americans wouldn’t consider voting for Hillary Clinton. And they say the good news is never printed!


Congratulations, once again, to the American public for voicing their disgust with the Bush-Kennedy-McCain Immigration Bill, so loudly that it’s dead. Huge kudos for the true Voice of American! That’s how a Republic is supposed to work.


I’ve never liked Larry King, not even for one second. I’ve never seen the value in that buffoon as far as journalism, talk show host or public personality of any kind is concerned. And he validates my feelings every time I see him or his show.

Well, the other night when he interviewed one of my favorite celebri-tards, Paris Hilton, I saw a reason worth sharing. Here are three of the questions he asked the white trash of white trash:

1. “What hotel chain is your family associated with?”
2. “They say you have the same name as a city in France. What city is that?”
3. “Did you ever have dinner with Stalin?”


I thought she was the dumber of the two, now I know better.

Remember Whitewater? I’m not talking about National Geographic’s piece on the Colorado River. I’m talking about the Bill and Hillary Whitewater. Yeah, that one. The one that was investigated ad nauseam during the Clinton Presidency.

Well, I’m tired of people telling me that it was nothing. So I’m thinking as long as Hillary Clinton is running for the presidency, in the interest of folks understanding what kind of person she is, this might be a good time for a little review.

Once upon a time there was this big, dopey, hillbilly crook named Jim McDougal. Jim had a great investment idea and presented Bill and Hillary with an opportunity to earn huge returns on the order of 20 percent a year.

Jim wanted to purchase 230 acres of land on the White River in the Ozark Mountains and subdivide it to sell lots as vacation sites. The Clintons thought it was a great idea. So, although they never put any money into it, Hillary, as an attorney, played an important role in it.

This was no regular real estate plan. The plan was to sell lots to elderly and middle-class families. When these people bought a lot, they received no deed, just a simple purchase agreement. The small print at the bottom said “In the event the default continues for 30 days…payments made by the purchaser ‘shall be considered as rent’ for the use of the premises.” So no one who was purchasing the property actually took ownership until the last payment was made.

If a buyer missed just one month – happens to the best of us over a several year period – all the money paid into the property to that point became rent and they would have no equity at all.

Here are a couple of examples as cited by Peter Schweizer in “Do as I say…:”

Grain elevator operator, Clyde Soapes invested a $3,000 down payment and made payments of $244.69 per month, making thirty-five payments. He suddenly fell ill with diabetes and missed a couple of payments. The Clintons took possession of the land and resold it to another investor for $16,500. After the new investor missed a payment, the Clintons resold it again.

More than half of the people who bought lots in Whitewater, according to Schweizer, missed a payment or two and then lost their land without getting a dime of their equity back. These people were teachers, farmers, laborers and retirees.

Monthly payment checks were sent to Whitewater Development Corporation in care of Hillary Rodham Clinton. In 1982, Hillary herself sold a home to a man who went bankrupt and then died. She took possession of the home and resold it for $20,000.

Punch line? In an “amazing feat of moral dexterity,” as Schweizer puts it, she cosponsored the Predatory Consumer Lending Act, claiming that mortgage fees are too high. (By the way, the law does not outlaw the type of scheme she was involved in.)

Now, you wouldn’t want your used car salesman to have that kind of a background. Yet, some of you want to elect her President of the United States?

I guess next year we’ll see if being ruthless and mean can get you the presidency in this day and age.


Congress has voted to reenact automatic pay raises. Their pay will be increased every year to adjust for the cost of living unless they vote to block it. Like that’s going to happen!

This Congress, with a 14 percent approval rating, lowest in history, rewarded itself with a $4,460 raise bringing members to $170,000 per year. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is paid $212,100. And what a fine job she does.


Postscript to yesterday’s blog: Turns out the call made by Mrs. Edwards to the show “Hardball” to berate Ann Coulter, was a set-up…staged by MSNBC. I’m shocked!

CELEBRITY DEATH MATCH (Mrs. Edwards vs. Ms. Coulter)

Former Senator and current wimp John Edwards has taken to hiding behind his wife’s skirt and using her to address Ann Coulter on his behalf. Mrs. Edwards called into Chris Matthews’ show “Hardball” on Tuesday to ask Coulter to halt the attacks on her husband.

Coulter has been quoted widely in the left-stream media as saying on Good Morning America, that she wished John Edwards had been killed by terrorists.

This is a misquote. And when the actual quote is put into its proper context, she didn’t wish that at all. But I’ve checked as many sources as I could this evening and couldn’t find one that quoted Ms. Coulter accurately.

So I went to the source; a clip from GMA showing the actual interview. This is what went down, and what was said:

She was citing Bill Maher’s suggestion in March that “people wouldn’t be dying needlessly” if Vice President Dick Cheney had been killed in Afghanistan in an insurgent attack. And Maher was NOT joking.

What happened was she was commenting, in response to questioning, on her calling Edwards a “faggot” (which is also a misquote) and the firestorm her remark caused.

So she referenced Maher’s remarks about Cheney, and commented on the fact that no one seemed to have a problem with him saying that. “So I learned my lesson and If I’m going to say anything about John Edwards in the future, I’ll just wish he had been killed in a terrorist assassination plot.”

If you can’t see the tongue-in-cheek in that, then buck up and go buy yourself a little sense of humor and stop at the spa for a little skin thickening. Or, take your pills!

And while you’re at it, you might want to donate a couple cans of Man to the Edwards campaign.

Again, I couldn’t find one mainstream outlet quoting her in context. Yet not a word about His Idiocy, Bill Maher!
