How about the 6 year old little girl who died at World Trade Center whose only crime was to go with her mother to work at World Trade Center? God rest this fine young man who gave his all for his country and ours. I salute him and express condolences to his family. Its terrible. Worse yet, lets get mad about these gang of thugs who perpetrated not only 9/11 but these atrocities against our country and these fine young men and women who are there to fight for peace, justice, and rule of law! Support the United States and its mission, its troops, memorialize the fallen heros. God save the United States! 5/27/2007 11:33:27 AM
Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodman Clinton just voted against the FUNDING BILL FOR OUR WAR HEROS.. I can imagine that a person like Barack Hussein Obama making a fatal mistake as that, but Hilary Rodman Clinton ?? And we as Americans, not as Republican or Democrat , are not going to protect our love ones in Iraq giving them the tools to fight with to keep them safe!!! GOD have mercy on the souls of these two people that are running for the Office of the President. Please, please DO NOT VOTE FOR THESE PEOPLE!!! For them and other candidates that have voted against funds for our war heros, must believe that supporting our troops is not as important as becoming the President !!!

SORRY FOR THIS MAN ABOUT LOSING HIS SON. AS FAR AS OPPOSITION TO THE IRAQ WAR, THIS MAN AND HIS LIBERAL COMRADES WOULD OPPOSE ANY ACTION ON ANY LEVEL. LINES ARE BEING DRAWN IN THIS COUNTRY,PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT EMINENT DOMAIN TAKING OF PRIVATE PROPERTY TO RAISE TAX BASE,ABORTION,RAISING ALL TAXES,ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES AND CALLING ANYONE WHO OPPOSES THEM A FACIST. IT WILL COME DOWN TO WHO IS WILLING TO SACRIFICE THE MOST FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

I am truly sorry that your brave son was killed in Iraq.However, I believe that the Al Qaeda had plans to do what is now being said they wish to do long before 911, Afghanistan and Iraq.Yesterday, the deputy leader of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has urged supporters in Iraq to extend their "holy war" to other Middle Eastern countries.The extremist eliminate of Islam, which could be as much as a third of the Muslim world, depending on which poll you believe, is extremely intent on spreading their religion to non-believers or infidels as we are called in America. If we refuse to convert or pay their price they are sworn to kill us and our way of life by mandate of Mohamed.Hence, anytime we as a nation of reasonable people, for the most part, can confine them and try to stop them from gaining strength to carry out their version of Mien Kamph we should do it.If we do not, they will be able to carry out their treats. Death to America was a very popular slogan long before 911 and Iraq.Rather than us killing the entire population of the Muslim world to eradicate the threat, which we are capable of doing, it seemed to us that the better way to encourage the people of that part of the world to behave reasonably would be to give them the opportunity to live in freedom and govern themselves.If they had something to live for maybe they would not risk their lives to kill us.We here in America full well know, if the choice is they kill us or we kill them and they are killing us and we are not able to stop them with conventional might, we would chose to kill them anyway way we able to do it. We would demand our nation use its full military might, the big bombs, to save our lives.

*What exactly is a fathers duty when his son is sent into harm*s way?* How about to support and pray for him? Certainly not to undermine him with your ideological views. The Armed Services are an ALL VOLUNTEER force, ergo the choice was your over 18 year-old son*s to make. It is the height of arrogance for any parent to place their personal politics ahead of the lives of their children.

Iraq is simply one front in the Global War with Radical Islam. Would Mr. Bacevich feel better had his son been beheaded in Southern Thailand, Blown-up in a bus in London, shot in a Mid-West mall? I think not. Like far too many on the left his hate cloud his abiltiy to see the world clearly. Mr. Bacevich, your son died a hero. Fighting for his country, and our way of life in a remote, hot, dirty, hostile place. You should honor him by seeing to it we win, not cut and run.

On this Memorial Day I am remembering -I remember relatives who fought in World War II; some returned, some did not.I remember relatives who were sent to Korea; some returned whole, some did not.I remember classmates were were drafted to Vietnam; some returned, some did not.And now I am remembering relatives who volunteered after 9/11, one will never return from Iraq.And I am remembering what America USED to be - "one nation" that proudly proclaimed that we are "a nation of laws" - a nation that had a "can do" attitude - a nation that transformed its immigrants into the self-same Americans.That nation is about to disappear from this earth.Our "betters" have decreed that we are a "multicultural society" and that if there are enough scofflaws that congress (lower case intentional) will simply "change the laws" - that we are a nation that "can't" retain its sovereignty - that we are a nation that is well on its way to be bifurcated not only by a super-highway from Texas to Canada but also bifurcated by language and culture.The looney-lefties are right - bring our troops, those who are flung all around the globe - home, right NOW. Send no more of our young warriors out to protect others - they are needed right here right now as the invasion of America escalates, with ever more danger to its own citizens at the hands of MS13, the drug lords, and the jihadists continues unabated.I don't want to be remembering any more young warriors who have wasted their energies or lives in defense of AmeXica.And so, as we remember the once-proud America, it is "Goodbye, America - you truly once were the shining city on the hill" and "hola, ameXica - you truly are becoming another third-world, third-rate country."

a fathers duty is to honor the hero his son was, not shame him by attacking the institutions his son served under.

Wow. Completely self-sufficient. Slap a dome atop it & fire it off into space, I say!
"And there is a ton of information that we do not yet know about this story. Yet there appears to be very little interest in the story from the mainstream press. In part, this is a result of the fact that there is far, far too much focus on Alberto Gonzales in current press and congressional investigations. Just as he was merely a rubber stamp for Rove, et al. in the U.S. Attorney and related scandals, so, too, in these much more significant constitutional crises, he is "merely" an apparatchik, a hired gun of sorts. The real action here has always been in the Vice President's Office -- and on the intrigung question of why the President has repeatedly allowed the Vice President's idiosyncratic views to determine state policy -- and that's where the smoke and fire will be if and when the media and Congress ever get to the bottom of it."
"If and when" indeed. More like "if ever." But something to look forward to, nonetheless.
.Future prexy standing right. Note '40s style pre-presidential codpiece. These guys from Hah-vahd & Yale are just too fucking much.
JFK's current place in history is that he was the first (so far only) Chief Magistrate to have been killed dead in the street while in office during the Telebision Era; stills of a martyred war hero/president's funeral do not have the impact of a televised muffled drums & riderless horse ceremony.

"The tattoos that most confound me are those I see on black basketball players. I’m afraid that whatever the designs and messages NBA stars are toting around on their arms and torsos are lost on me. Blue and purple simply don’t register on dark skin. They look like Rorschach ink blots, as if instead of having the work done by a tattoo artist, the work was jobbed out to Jackson Pollack wannabes, who had the athletes lie on the floor while they dripped paint on them."
Do tattoos on black people who don't play basketball confound you? Or is it that the only black folk you ever see are shooting hoops on the idiot box?

Clear thoughts on an important issue.
I've come to the conclusion that everybody thinks the same thoughts that I do on most issues, just that they don't think 'em clearly enough, would rather think something else, and so must be reminded of what they already know. On this issue, we think that:Men are allowed (no more than two) tattoos symbolic of nationality, family/heritage, or military service on either the upper shoulder or upper back. Anything else is perceived suspiciously as indication of jail time, former (or current) methamphetamine addiction, and/or a seedy secret life.Women are allowed zero tattoos. Any stray mark is perceived as graffiti. With a neighborhood, the property value depreciates proportionally with the amount of graffiti on the walls. Too much, and the neighborhood starts to take on a "rough" look; like a place a good person wouldn't want to raise a family, where a bad person might go looking for drugs or hookers. Similar with a woman.Other: any tattoo in the area below the navel extending around to the lower back and down to the upper thigh...symbolizes promiscuity. Here to help."

Pictures found. Who cares about a transcript? (Actually, the very link to Howie's Newsweek column above answers most questions.)
(The jihadi intake form was released over a year ago, but it's news to me. See what you miss when you rely on the liberal MSM for vital information?)

"BAGHDAD - A day after radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr resurfaced to end nearly four months in hiding and demand U.S. troops leave Iraq, American forces raided his Sadr City stronghold and killed five suspected militia fighters in air strikes Saturday.U.S. and Iraqi forces called in the air strikes after a raid in which they captured a "suspected terrorist cell leader," the U.S. military said in statement.
The statement claimed the captured man was "the suspected leader in a secret cell terrorist network known for facilitating the transport of weapons and explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs, from Iran to Iraq, as well as bringing militants from Iraq to Iran for terrorist training."
ABOUT G-D TIME, IF ABOUT 3 YEARS TOO LATE.
WIPE THEM ALL OUT, NOW.

CONTINGENCY PLANNING, ahem, IS the SOP for the DOD - and has been for DECADES.
BTW, Kinko's called.
Joe Klein asks us to let him "deconstruct" it in Swampland today.
Later, he replies to one of his contemptuous commentators:

Vice-President Richard B. Cheney rouses "The Base." (And moves & shakes in the corridors of power.)
Then Joe Klein received a visit from some of his mysterious sources.
You'll have to judge for yourself if this is sufficient confirmation for an impending apocalypse. And I haven't even had a chance to see what Seymour Hersh may have to say on the subject. But there'll always be Commentary.
Damn! This whole pix of cats on Friday afternoon for cubicle slaves who've had a tough week writing their own blogs, etc., and therefore just can't handle any more of the current terrible situation so they post pictures of the only living beings they ever have physical contact with, their feline roommates, is not working out too well here at Just Another Blog.
Between the camera's crumminess and Princess LIllie's refusal to lighten her fur a few shades so she might be visible, for all I can tell some ninny is posting shots of a stuffed animal that might not even be an attempt to represent a cat.
And I'm not a cubicle/wage slave. Take a tip from me, slaves, give up on the "job" concept, soon other bourgeois concepts like "weekend" will disappear as well, your existence will be improved, and you'll have only me to thank.
UPDATE: Here's some Fri. Cat Blogging that's worth the effort. 25 May '07 early eve.
Renaissance Man Tomorrow, 26 May, is the centenary of the birth of John Wayne (under the name Marion Morrison). (Related to Jim? Probably would've heard about it by now.)

And equal time for the ladies:
The Beatles and the Rolling Stones were playing on 45 rpm records. Mitt saw her across the room. He remembered that when he was a Cub Scout in elementary school, he and some other scouts saw Ann riding a horse bareback across a railroad track.
"What do Cub Scouts do when they see a little girl on a horse?" Mitt says now. "We picked up stones and threw
them [at her]."
Years later, at Cindy White's party, Mitt thought, "Wow, has she changed!"
My chapeau tipped to The Daily Dish.)
