This just in!

I was conducting some historical research and came across this stunner headline:

Nazi propaganda minister gets Boeing to apologize for showing images of B-17s bombing occupied Europe.

Mr. Joeseph Goebbels annouced today that "we thank Boeing, for their swift and decisive response to our concerns. Mistakes can happen, but the true test of a company's integrity comes in acknowledging and dealing with those mistakes."

Mr. Goebbels went on to state that, in a spirit of reconciliation, "the images that Boeing displayed were insensitive to the plight of the German people, and did nothing to bring our two cultures closer together."

Wow. Who would have thought that we'd be apologizing to someone who is our sworn enemy?

Read it all.

No Looting in Texas

For our "fan" who once commented we were beer-swilling, gun-loving rednecks: so what's your point?

Holy Cow Statue Discovered in Mazandaran

From Iran:
These statues are evidence that the people of the region worshiped oxen and humped cows 3000 years ago.
Hey, let's keep sex and religion separate, okay?

Seriously, don't they have proofreaders?

[edited]Okay, what are you, dumb? You don't get the joke? HUMPED COWS, get it? They humped COWS 3000 years ago.

This is good stuff, people. Try to keep up.

Two Americas?

I often ask myself why it is that there often appears to be two Americas. The America that I believe in; the land of the free and the home of the brave. And the America that we see on TV - the land of the oppressed and the home of the cowardly.
After perusing the major news outlets today, it became a bit clearer to me just why that is. As I’m sure you’ve heard, while the Gulf Coast was getting battered by Hurricane Rita there was an anti-war demonstration going on in Washington. CBSFOXCNN gave us almost exactly the same story: “Cindy Sheehan, mother of a US soldier who was killed in Iraq took part in the largest demonstration against the war since America invaded Iraq. A coalition of anti-war protestors also took part, including Joan Baez and the Reverend Jesse Jackson.” With only minor changes or additions, that’s what we were told. You can see what they said exactly here, here, and here.

For whatever reason, ABC and MSNBC had no story whatsoever about the protest on their front pages and I didn’t feel like digging to page 28B to find anything.

Now, if the MSM were my only source for news, I’d be fairly convinced that the protestors were a group of peaceful folks who gathered together to exercise their 1st amendment rights and express their opinion of the Iraq war. If I was a mind numbed lemming, I might even be inclined to agree with all or some of what they were saying because they seem like rational folks with a bunch of like minded individuals.

Funny though. Take a look at the photos put up by Michelle Malkin.

Of course, the dark side of the protest somehow didn't get any coverage by our pals in the "professional" media.

Or this one:

Why are these little boys and girls wearing masks I wonder?

Could it be becuase they're committing crimes as detailed in their own pictures here, here, or here? Or maybe they're just getting ready for the tear gas when they step out of line?

Now, any questions class, as to just why there seems to be two Americas? If there is any doubt in your mind that we're not just fighting a war against the islamists but a war against those who would destroy us from within, then you're an idiot. To the left, and their supporters in the media, that would more accurately be a useful idiot.

To my friends on the right - do not let this go unmentioned. Do not stand silently by and let these thugs control the pulse of our country like they did 3 decades ago in Vietnam.

Gun Control Campaign Warns Florida Visitors

A spokesman for the Brady Group said the new law may lead to the reckless use of guns on the streets. They are actually handing out fliers that say people face a greater risk of bodily harm in Florida.
Need any more reasons why the Brady Bunch is finally on the run? They're resorting to fear and ignorance to advance their agenda.

Oh, wait...they've always done that.

Rumors of Deaths Greatly Exaggerated

'I've got a report of 200 bodies in the Dome,' Beron recalls the doctor saying.

The real total was six, Beron said.
Good thing the media took the time to evaluate the claims before reporting to a horrified public, huh? Here's a good summary of what you read in the news:
"I think 99 percent of it is bullshit," said Sgt. 1st Class Jason Lachney, who played a key role in security and humanitarian work inside the Dome.
Let's check in with NOPD's chief of police, the Mayor of New Orleans, and the general populace for how they helped curb the spin:
Police, according to their chief, Eddie Compass, found themselves in multiple shootouts inside both shelters, and were forced to race toward muzzle flashes through the dark to disarm the criminals; snipers supposedly fired at doctors and soldiers from downtown high-rises.

In interviews with Oprah Winfrey, Compass reported rapes of "babies," and Mayor Ray Nagin spoke of "hundreds of armed gang members" killing and raping people inside the Dome. Unidentified evacuees told of children stepping over so many bodies, "we couldn't count."
Nagin told Winfrey the crowd has descended to an "almost animalistic state."
Any bets on whether or not the mayor gets re-elected? Sad thing is, I bet he will.
