The real reason the West is in danger of extinction

One of the most cogent pieces of writing I've read in a while. Again, it proves why it's easy to be liberal. This is one helluva long read. But worth every second it takes to read it.

"... in the typical election campaign in your advanced industrial democracy, the political platforms of at least one party in the United States and pretty much all parties in the rest of the West are largely about what one would call the secondary impulses of society--government health care, government day care (which Canada's thinking of introducing), government paternity leave...."

That's right folks, the job of the government is to protect us, not provide for us. Shocking, eh?

"There are many trouble spots around the world, but as a general rule, it's easy to make an educated guess at one of the participants: Muslims vs. Jews in "Palestine," Muslims vs. Hindus in Kashmir, Muslims vs. Christians in Africa, Muslims vs. Buddhists in Thailand, Muslims vs. Russians in the Caucasus, Muslims vs. backpacking tourists in Bali. "

Wow, I'm sure even the stupidest euro weenie could make the connection here. Maybe.

And to show just how far our wonderful neighbors to the north are taking multiculturalism, and how far they're willing to go to not insult anyone, Canada has willingly and knowingly let a terrorist wounded in the fighting in Afghanistan (yes, a terrorist) come home to Canada to seek medical treatment. "Nonetheless, the prime minister of Canada thought Boy Khadr's claims on the public health system was an excellent opportunity to demonstrate his own deep personal commitment to "diversity." Asked about the Khadrs' return to Toronto, he said, "I believe that once you are a Canadian citizen, you have the right to your own views and to disagree."

Right. You can say that as they're hacking your head off while you're still alive. See how far that gets ya.

Read it all.

Sniper shot that took out an insurgent killer from three quarters of a mile

Nice. 1250 meters with a .308 is gawd awful far. Helluva shot.

A couple interesting tidbits:

- the enemy sniper was hiding in a hospital - isn't that civilized?

- it's nice to see that not everyone is eager to become a feminized, euro-trash version of the 21st century male: "The one-shot-one-kill thing is one of beauty but killing all the bad dudes is even more attractive," said Staff Sgt Gilliland, whose motto is "Move fast, shoot straight and leave the rest to the counsellors in 10 years" and signs off his e-mails with "silent souls make.308 holes".

Here's the quiz of the day:
Take a look at the picture in the story and tell me what's wrong in that picture.

I hate to say it, but:


Thank you for your kind attention.

Human Head Found Floating Off Fla. Island

Hey - whattya call a man with no arms and no legs swim...aw, nevermind.

Buchanan goes crazy

I generally find Pat Buchanan an intelligent author and speaker. However, in this WND article, I think he's completely lost his mind.

On one hand, he's admitting that Iran's thug in chief is dangerous.

"Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who says Israel should be "wiped off the map" and the Holocaust is a myth, is still on message. On New Year's Day, he charged Europeans with setting up a "Jewish camp" in the Middle East, with the most sinister of motives.
"Don't you think that continuation of genocide by expelling Jews from Europe was one of their aims in creating a regime of occupiers of Al Quds [Jerusalem]?" Ahmadinejad was quoted by Iran's official Islamic Republic News. "Isn't that an important question?" "

But on the other hand, all he wants us to do is "talk" with the thug. Right. Hitler was an easy guy to rationalize with right Mr. Chamberlain?

Pat goes on to try and rationalize the point that since Iran has signed the nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty that they will, more importantly, abide by said treaty:

"Tehran is telling Bush: We are not going to be the only country on earth to have signed the NPT and then be told by you we cannot exercise our rights under the treaty. "

How many treaties did Hitler sign swearing he wouldn't build his military forces in the 1930s? How many treaties did Hitler sign swearing that, no really, all he really wanted was the Sudatenland?

Buchanan then jumps fully into the Sheehan camp by using the same exact rhetoric they used to argue against taking out Iraq:

"As of today, Iran is not a nuclear threat."

Ok, let me get this right. Today, Iran is not a nuclear threat. What about next year? In 5 years? 10? You do the math. Would you rather take on a nuclear Iran, or one that has had its nuclear capability removed? Which one do you think would be more expensive in both lives and money? Because if you think that a nuclear Iran would NOT be a threat to the United States, I've got a bridge for you to buy in Brooklyn.

He further buries himself in the weakness of his position by saying essentially, yeah, so even if Iran can build ONE nuclear bomb, they've only got ONE and we've got thousands. How many EMP bursts would it take to severely damage our country Mr. Buchanan? How many nuclear bombs launched off an oil tanker would it take to destroy Washington DC? Houston? New York? LA? You think that Katrina damaged our economy?

Why do you think we're so concerned over the fact that Iran is building a nuclear bomb, but for some reason, a nuclear Pakistan and India don't seem to bother us? Could it be that Pakistan and India don't go about calling the United States the Great Satan? Could it be that neither country is ruled by a thug? Could it be that neither country is stating they want to wipe an important ally of ours off the map?

I don't know what the answer is. But giving concessions to the Iranians for being punks is the wrong move.

Mexico Retaliates for Border Wall Plan

This is rather oldish news I've been sitting on; too busy to put something down "on paper".

I can't begin to tell you how much the tone of this article infuriates me.

"Many Mexicans, especially those who have spent time working in the U.S., feel the proposal is a slap in the face to those who work hard and contribute to the U.S. economy."

There's clearly no denying that illegal immigrants do a lot work here. There's also no denying they cost this country billions of dollars a year - health care costs and education costs alone are absolutely insane.

"Fernando Robledo, 42, of the western state of Zacatecas, says the proposals could stem migration and disrupt families by breaking cross- border ties."

The whole point, Senor Robeldo, is to stem migration. Dumb ass.

"The House bill, passed on a 239-182 vote, would also enlist military and local law enforcement to help stop illegal entrants and require employers to verify the legal status of their workers."

Good, it's about time.

"Mexicans are outraged by the proposed measures, especially the extension of the border wall, which many liken to the Berlin Wall."

History lesson folks - the Berlin Wall kept the enslaved East Berliners from escaping to the West, and Freedom. This wall would help protect the United States from ILLEGAL (key word class) immigrants - not migrant workers - not undocumented workers - but ILLEGAL immigrants from coming into our country and enjoying the freedoms and rights that we pay for daily.

I say build the wall, patrol it with aerial drones and ship every single person who crosses the border illegally back to the country they crossed from, whether that be Canada or Mexico. Put the onus of protecting the mutual borders on both our neighbors and start protecting our borders.

Reprise: Britney Spears - Role Model For The Youth of America

I rarely blog about my own blog, but here we go. The number one generator of traffic to this site has been the following picture you see here.
Now, you and I (normal, nose-breathing Americans) look at this photo, perhaps scratch our heads for a second, recognize that it's a photoshop, chuckle, and move on.

However, the continent of Europe and the State of California are very much satire-/humor-impaired. Here is a link to the comments I've received from some of these mouth-breathing inbred mongrels.

Apparently, some popular site in Europe has linked directly to this image on the Tattler, and every time Britney farts, we get a thousand hits. While I'd like to thank all the perverts around the world for visiting our blog every time we mention Britney Spears (or any other female for that matter), I'd also like to thank them to keep their mouths shut. If you want to defend Britney, go do it on your own blog, unless you love being the subject of derision and ridicule (which is kinda fun, in a mean way). If you look at this picture, then make a comment about how horrible we are, don't expect to be greeted with hugs and kisses.

It's a joke. Chuckle, then move on.

Ex-D.C. Mayor Barry Unharmed in Robbery - Yahoo! News

Ah, the sweet, sweet irony of this event. It took me a few minutes to stop laughing over this one.
...he gave the youths a couple of dollars for helping him with his groceries and they left. They returned, however, and pointed a gun at his head and took his wallet, which contained cash and credit cards...
Wait - aren't handguns illegal in D.C.?

Large wildfires singe North Texas

It smells like wildfires outside, and now inside the house. Check out this article - there's so much smoke, it's showing up on radar.

Don't toss that cigarette out the window, please.
