Carter: Guantanamo Detentions Disgraceful

This coming from the 2nd most disgraceful president other than Clinton? Carter's a joke. This is the same man who did nothing but sit on his hands while the United States of America was humiliated at the hands of a group of Iranian "students" - one of which looks likely to be the new thug in charge in Iran. Of course Carter dissaproves of taking action to protect the United States. Carter was an embarrassment of a president (who really thinks he would ever have been elected without the specter of Watergate hanging over the Repbulicans heads?) and he's an embarrassment now.

BBC NEWS | UK | Police hold four 21 July suspects

Ah, the brave fighters of islam:

"He was saying to them: 'How do I know when I come out, that you're not going to shoot me? I'm scared'."

What a chicken shit. Brave enough to try and blow innocent people up on the tube, but not so brave when there are guns pointed at him, eh?

Hat tip to the Brits - I know we tend to give them a lot of shit over their draconian gun laws, but they've got their anti-terror shit together. Anyone else remember the SAS raid on the embassy 20 something years ago? Good job guys.

Senate votes to shield gun makers from lawsuits

"Criminals, not manufacturers, will face being sued for gun-related damages."
Huh. What a novel idea.

Springfield XD

I picked up a new carry gun a few weeks ago and thought I'd give a little report.

I've fired about 500 or so rounds through it and so far I'm pretty impressed. No jams or hang ups whatsoever. Considering the sights are pretty weak and not the usual Heinie's that I'm used to and they're 3 dots, which I hate - it's pretty accurate. Recoil about what you'd expect from a dinky 9mm - pretty mild.

I've yet to clean it, and I'll shoot her without cleaning till she pukes - and at current rates, that's going to be awhile.

Some high points - this weapon points naturally just like my beloved 1911s/2011s. Much unlike the Glocks which I always seem to be pointing a tad low with a natural point of aim. Breakdown is easier than a Glock, and you don't have to worry about holding your mouth just right to get the slide off the frame. Reloads with the XD also are a lot easier than with a Glock - the inside of the mag well has got nothing in there to catch your mag, unlike a Glock.

The trigger is similar to a Glock, in that it's got a pretty long pull. Unlike a Glock, the break of the trigger is pretty clean and not mushy at all.

All things said and done, I'm pretty happy with it!! I would have to say that this is the first pistol I've seen (so far) that can rival the Glocks for reliability, ease of operation, and cost.

ABC's 'Commander in Chief' will have family focus

All this show is going to do is hype up Hillary Clinton for President. I can hear it now: "Gina Davis does such a great job as president on TV, that Hillary can do the same for us in real life!"

Anybody want to take a bet?


Another Hollywood idiot shows his stupidity.

"He created a war in Iraq that has further helped bust the economy...."

Ummm, Ollie baby, maybe you should check the unemployment level which is as low or lower than during Bill Clinton's "the best economy in history" and I seem to recall hearing the Treasury stating that since the tax cuts, we're now starting to see more money in the bank than expected.

You go Ollie. And folks wonder why Hollywood is having it's worst summer in years??

Helen Thomas to take her own life

If Dick Cheney runs for President!!

Golly, if there wasn't a reason before to have Cheney run, then there is now!!!

Thu Jul 28 2005 15:32:13 ET

Veteran wire reporter Helen Thomas is vowing to 'kill herself' if Dick Cheney announces he is running for president.

The newspaper HILL first reported the startling claim on Thursday.


"The day Dick Cheney is going to run for president, I'll kill myself," she told the HILL. "All we need is one more liar."


Want a reason why we should get the hell out of the United Nations, and fast?

Check this out.

Their commisioner for human rights is more concerned with the human rights of the terrorists we fight, and that the counter terrorists don't violate the terrorist's or suspected terrorist's human rights, but somehow they don't seem all that concerned for the rights of the humans that the terrorists take.

Police Blotter

Honest folks. I couldn't make this stuff up.

"Instead, still holding the phone to his ear, the man turned and ran. The officer could hear the man yelling, “Mom, mom! They’re going to shoot me!” The man slipped on the wet pavement and fell down, still shouting to his mother on the phone. The officer took the phone and explained to the woman that her son was not being shot and that he could call her later from jail."

I'm sure the officers involved weren't laughing their asses off after this arrest.

And this description of a con man is classic:
" He described the suspect as “a big, fat, cross-eyed white guy with gray hair.”

WorldNetDaily: Will we defend ourselves?

Walter Williams is a pretty smart cookie:

"Regardless of how we feel now about the treatment of terrorists, and suspected terrorists, I can envision a day when Americans will care less about interrogation techniques used in the quest to get intelligence about terrorists. That day will be when there's a chemical or biological attack in one of our cities that kills and injures tens of thousands of Americans. If that day ever comes, you can bet the rent money that the Dick Durbins, the Nancy Pelosis and others who've undermined and attacked our interrogation efforts, complaining about our not treating international cutthroats humanely, will blame the attack on President Bush. The last thing they'll do is blame themselves for sabotaging our efforts to get intelligence that might stymie terrorist plans."

ABC13.com: HPD chief says officers won't change policy on immigration

Typical. We won't ask you if you're an illegal immigrant, and we'll call you a citizen. Just who is John Galt?

Want a Brazilian wax for bikini weather? Not so fast, kiddo.

"That's so a child under the age of eighteen can’t go in and do a complete
Brazilian wax without parental consent,”
“Twelve- and thirteen-year-old little girls think they’re eighteen and
nineteen in this day and age,” Fox continues. “Sometimes they can become very
rebellious, and if they think this is something that their folks can come
unglued about, that’s what they’re going to do.”

But hey, if you want to go get yourself an abortion, we won't have to notify your parents.

Someone please explain to me why this jackass hasn't either been deported, or been found in a dark alley somewhere with a .22 in the back of the head.

Jerusalem Post | Breaking News from Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World

On the surface, this is starting to look like either a tragic accident or Darwin at work. The man killed by the police was seen leaving a suspected terrorist 'hideout'. He was wearing a thick coat in the middle of the summer. And he ran from the police into the subway system. The police "may" have screwed up. I think the jury is still out and we should wait for all the facts to emerge. But I don't think the dead guy did everything in his power to stay alive - like not run from the cops. Note to British Muslims: maybe when the cops give you a hard look, or ask you to stop and be searched you should comply if you want to get home to momma.

And again, the local muslim spokesman does nothing but whine about "poor pitiful me", and just can't seem to understand why anyone would look suspiciosly at someone who looked like he was from the middle east. I mean, really. Why would anyone look suspiciously at a group of people (young arabic men) when all they have done is bomb a bunch of buildings, planes, trains, automobiles and schools up in the last couple of years.

I heard ex New York police commissioner Kerek (sp?) today on the radio trying to explain that we're not 'racially' profiling - we're 'criminally' profiling. And guess what? Young to middle aged middle eastern men fit the profile.

Mystery AIDS strain 'patient zero' found

At the club, CT01 had insertive anal intercourse with ejaculation into the New York man. CT02, a 41-year-old man who has lived with CT01 for 12 years, had insertive anal intercourse without ejaculation with the same man.
Jeepers. How often do you see that sentence in a wire story?

Anal intercourse is bad, m'kaay?

Clinton Offered 40 Goats For Daughter

Face it, Bill. Chelsea's not getting any younger.
Mr Chepkurgor also said he was also impressed by Mr Clinton's wife, Hillary, for standing by Mr Clinton during the Monica Lewinksy scandal.

He said Mrs Clinton acted like a "like an African woman".
I say make it a package deal, and you get on with things, Willy.

I Understand Why

While I was driving through East Texas today, I was reminded of the black man that was chained to the back of a pick up and dragged to death in Jasper a few years back. It got me thinking of other violent acts against blacks that some say were racially motivated . After much thought I have concluded that these people have brought the attacks upon themselves. That's right, I said it. They had it coming. I'm not saying I agree with the attacks, I am just saying I think I understand them. Blacks dress disrespectfully with their pants pulled down showing their drawers. When they talk they use a dialect that is almost impossible to understand, and also use filthy language. They listen to music that degrades women and promotes violence and other behavior that is unacceptable in our society. They have also moved into our neighborhoods and occupy them. It's their culture that is to blame and the reason the attackers hate them. Taking all this into consideration it is no wonder why a group of people are attacking them every chance they get. Like I said, I don't condone it, but I am trying to understand it. After all, they themselves are to blame for the whirlwind which they now reap.
Does this sound absurd? Did you find it objectionable? I do and you should. It should also infuriate you when you hear the America hating, scumbag, maggot infested, dope smoking, hippie trash, or the Europeans, or Muslims that say the same thing when they are talking about their understanding of the terrorists and why they want to kill us.

Just a reminder.

Jane Fonda to Oppose Iraq War on Bus Tour

Title should read:
"Hanoi Jane at it again."

Story should read:
"Not content with being despised, loathed and spat upon by those who served in the Vietnam war, Hanoi Jane has taken it upon herself to be despised, loathed and spat upon by the current crop of heroes who are at this moment protecting Ms. Hanoi from islamists who would like nothing more than to cut off her head with a dull spoon. Ms. Hanoi plans to take a trip to the middle east to meet with the islamists in the mountains of Afghanistan to show her support for the oppressed indigenous people of the region. When asked if she'll cover her face and otherwise act in accordance with islamic law, Ms. Hanoi expressed surprise and stated that she was going to show up in full Barbarella attire. It will be interesting to see if she survives the trip, or if she can take another set of photo ops in anti-aircraft or perhaps this time inside a car rigged up to be a car bomb."

What a bitch. You'll note in the brief story that this is all about Ms. Hanoi. She could care less about our troops overseas or the fact that this war was brought to us.
