Oil? Nope no oil in ANWAR, none in the Gulf of Mexico, nope none off the coast of California…Politicians and Bureaucrats to the People GO SUCK AN EGG!

While countries from around the world drill just 75 miles off all of our shores we are too self righteous to do so ourselves. There is an answer and Anchoress is on to it. Vote the bastards out.

Holding your own countrymen hostage to foreign oil while also refusing to allow nuclear energy…it’s not leadership. It is the opposite of leadership. And it’s un-American, too.

Signing petitions is all well and good, but I begin to think that the only way congress will ever take action is if they get hurt.

And the only way to hurt a congress is to vote them all out. 100 gallons of oil rocks the vote! | The Anchoress

Here are some links that just make me tingly all over. Some in Congress get it…witness U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick a REPUBLICAN btw. She has re-introduced a bill that would open up drilling offshore. It is such a sensible idea that even the dumbass Chinese are doing it. But the same exact bill by U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick was defeated in 2006.

The moratoriums prohibit energy development on the OCS in waters from three miles off our coastlines, where State-owned waters end and federal waters begin, to waters beyond 200 miles off the coasts

· A 2006 Department of Interior study of the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) estimated reserves of 8.5 billion barrels of oil and 29.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas

· Another 86 billion barrels of oil and 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas are classified as undiscovered resources

The United States is the only developed nation in the world that forbids energy production on its OCS—Cuba is allowing other countries, like China, to drill for oil close to 50 miles off the coast of Florida, while America sits with its hands tied

Well isn’t that peachy….it is not as if the politicians don’t know where this will all end.

And it is not as if we the people don’t want to drill…polls show we do.

Something is broken…

Ted Kennedy Promised This Wouldn’t Happen…Guess He Lied.

In an article in the Los Angeles Times by Gregory Rodriguez, that wasn’t all together ridiculous, this point was made. 

But that doesn’t make it right. No matter who wins the presidency, there is one thing we ought to learn from this campaign. In our rapidly diversifying nation, where we are all becoming minorities, the idea that any given group has an inalienable claim on a particular political seat, appointment or office based on demographics has officially outlived its usefulness. The fear of white decline – Los Angeles Times

Here is what Teddy, yes the same Teddy who is lying in a hospital facing his maker, well here is what he said back in 1965 then what he said in 1986 then what he said in 2007. At least he is a consistent liar.

1965: “The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants. It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.”

1986: “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”

2007: “Now it is time for action. 2007 is the year we must fix our broken system.

So now we find whites in America nearly a minority, after being nearly 90% of the population when that bastard spewed those lies. Yea, Teddy was good for this country. That bastard hated this country and spent his life trying to destroy it. And truth is he probably did.

So who is going to replace the whites in America as the leaders? Well the very same folks who made such a hash of their own countries that they ran away and came here. Mexico was at last check number 5 on the All World Murdering Capital. In other cheery news, in Mexico rape is not really considered to be a crime. And it is REALLY better to rape children because the law in Mexico, such as it is, protects them even less. Well ok you might serve a day in jail, till you sober up. But pretty much it is considered a-ok to rape. And Gangs? Hell Mexico is Gangs-R-Us of this hemisphere. Yea sure lets import a bunch of these folks.

Just think in a few more years we can expect Los Angeles to look like this…

'Mara 18' gang members  EPA/Gustavo Amador

Oops wrong set of slides…this is what Southern California already looks like. Wow…well in a few more years it will look like this.


That diversity thingy is working out well for Southern California. Iraq, Somalia, Vietnam the list goes on of countries where we have expended much treasure and blood trying to make them something they are not. Perhaps liberal democratic republics cannot be given to folks. If that is the case then maybe it is not such a great idea to be importing in the United States millions of folks who have no idea what we mean when we say law abiding. Law abiding people, people smart enough to understand that mutual respect of the law is the only thing that keeps us away from the visions of disaster that are such a part of those countries south of our border.

What was that bastard Kennedy thinking of when he uttered those lies in 1965?

Terrific Article on Computers at PJ Media…One comment got me to thinking.

This is strikingly true. I know in my house most of our photos are kept on disk. Perhaps it is time to start printing them out. Then there is my 600 vinyl albums…that I have been promising myself to digitize. At least they will still exist in 400 years even if the means to play them will be gone.

Morton Doodslag:

If the geometric proliferation of media formats remains a constant, the in a mere 10-20 years most of the storage formats we now use will be so obscure that much data will be lost. I’ve been thinking for years that we may be entering a peculiar kind of fugitive age, not really a dark age, where information will continue to be available, but very erratically.

For example, nearly all personal documents such as photos and personal/business correspondence will be lost in a very short time frame. They will be stowed in attics and garages in much the same manner as any kind of former documents, but we’ll have few means to easily access them. Eventually most will be discarded.

More generalized data will probably persist however. In a strange way, although the reasons for each are different, this loss of private assets mirrors the loss of privacy itself. Future generations will not really know what it’s like to happen across a box or drawer full of long hidden family documents or photographs. Lacking the means to translate ancient private media, the past will seem far more ephemeral than ever before. This will probably have huge consequences for society.

Brilliant expose of the liberal/left’s need to censor those that raise in convenient facts.

This is a must read blog post.

Little Tyrants Upset Over Debate

Liberal outrage over the ABC News debate last night is at a fever pitch, with a familiar call to arms going out across the land — shutting down free speech is a common wish of these free thinkers: Perfunction: Little Tyrants Upset Over Debate

Here is a tasty morsel from a brilliant post.

Daily Kos (yesterday)

President Barack should pull their [ABC’s] Broadcasting License.

Code Pink (2005):

Clear Channel wants a new 8-year license to control our public airwaves, promote war, and use our music against us…Pull the plug on corporate radio and tell the FCC to hold Clear Channel accountable, or revoke their broadcast license.

It is coming…beware of your vote this fall. It might be the last informed vote held in these United States. This is not the time to allow these radical Democrats into power. Let us vote for the decidedly untasty McCain. With the obvious failure of the left to gain a win in a supposedly impossible to lose year perhaps the Democrats will purge themselves of the undemocratic forces within their party. The Democrats have managed to push up the only two Democrats that would lose to McCain.

Why I Home School Reason #3,456,000 Zero-tolerance stupidity: 6-year-old labeled a “sexual harasser”

A 6 year old slaps a girl’s behind, naturally the rational action for the school to take is to call the police. Okey Dokey.  I support this nonsense with tax dollars. Our children are falling farther behind other children around the world in mathmatics, while we spend more per child than nearly everyone in the world. Fine, thank you sir, may I have another!

Calling the police for a disciplinary issue amounts to a complete capitulation of the administration’s authority over the children and a highly distorted sense of priorities. Nor is Potomac View alone in this issue. In Maryland alone, 166 elementary-school students got suspended for sexual harassment last year. Those figures include 22 first-graders, 16 kindergartners, and three pre-schoolers. In Virginia, ABC News reports, 255 elementary-school children got suspended last year for the same reasons.

Lest you think I jest about the falling farther behind claim. Click to see full size version. Get some hanky’s to wipe your tears away. We are below every single developed nation except Italy and Portugal. Weeeee….but we are arresting 6-year olds for supposed sexual harassment.

Color me confused…

Exactly what is meant by the bolded sentence?

The researchers say that, by focusing so heavily on high scorers, the elite colleges they examined are ignoring promising minority students with lesser scores, increasing the competition for high-scoring minority students, and potentially ?simply ?pricing? themselves out of the ?market? for a more diverse learning environment.? Especially among the most prestigious of the 30 institutions, it is hard to believe that putting less emphasis on high SAT scores would cause the institutions? quality to suffer. Elite Colleges’ Scramble to Enroll High SAT Scorers May Undermine Diversity – Chronicle.com

Do they mean that colleges should LOWER standards to meet minority students halfway? Boy talk about a sense of accomplishment for those minority students that get into Yale under the suggested guidelines. How insulting.

Pilot’s Gun Goes off on U.S. Airways Flight…Wondering if the same person trained DEA Agent giving a gun safety lesson and the pilot? Government program?

Well guess this just about covers allowing pilots to have guns. I am all for it but this will surely be used by the nannies to disarm our pilots.

No injuries are reported after a pilot’s gun discharged on a U.S. Airways flight from Denver to Charlotte, N.C.

Airline and federal officials say Flight 1536 was not in any danger as a result of the incident, which occurred about 9:50 a.m. MDT on Saturday.

Officials say the unnamed pilot was allowed to carry the weapon as part of the Transportation Security Administration’s Federal Flight Deck Officer program. It was created after the Sept. 11th terrorist attacks.

The program allows eligible crew members ? including pilots, navigators and flight engineers ? to use a firearm to defend against any act of air piracy or criminal violence.

Cross his heart hope to die, Obama promises he is not a liberal…okey dokey.

The left, bless their black little hearts, have never thought much of middle classes. That opinion underlies all of their philosophy. Indeed it is appealing, is it not, to consider that you are smarter than everyone you know, backseat drivers unite!…course the sane among us realize otherwise. The left, the mother of all backseat drivers.

Matter of fact the left has believed that you can indeed fool all of the people all of the time. Aren’t they cute? And who is cuter than the cutest of them all Barak Hussein Obama? Lookee here where Obama actually has the audacity to imagine that us rubes won’t know that “progressive” is just another word for really far left moonbat? In this interview he claims he is NOT a liberal…he is a progressive. Hmm…my mama didn’t raise no fool Hussein.

He said he was a progressive and a pragmatist, eager to tackle the big issues like health care and convinced that the Democrats could rally independents and disaffected Republicans to their agenda. Obama’s promise of a new majority, and the question it prompts – International Herald Tribune

But Obama is even funnier than that if you consider the attempted con job he has been trying to pull on the rest of the country. Consider his oh so heralded speech on race, which was actually an attempt to keep the Right Reverend Wright’s lunatics on board while giving willing fools a reason to believe that Obama really isn’t a white hating lunatic himself…no matter what he says about his Grandmother. He really thinks you are a dumbshit…ain’t that cute. Those leftists with their coincidental relationships with reality! Thank goodness that the Democrats are buying into this classic demagogues bullshit. Had they run a centrist candidate not out on the lunatic fringes they might have actually won the Presidency this year. Hell even Lieberman would have crushed McCain. You go girls.

Derbyshire wonders why we must respect Obama’s idiotic excuses regarding his pastor! Probably because Obama is black…

After all if Obama was white he would have been laughed out of the house for making up that much baloney to excuse his alliance with the Right Reverend Wright. Obama made an alliance with this clown to “reach” out and gather street cred to make a run for office back in the day. Because back in the day the Right Reverend Wright was not as radical as he is now. And besides if he was radical and is radical now whose fault is it??? Well it’s white man’s fault and the way to heal that is for the white man to understand that we are to blame and we need to PAY. I am guessing that won’t play very well with in the fly over states. May not play well with all the blue dogs either. Oh baby please let Obama win the nomination. If we lose to that collection of leftist cliche’s we deserve anything that happens.

Here is John Derbyshire on the supposed need to tip toe around Osama/Obama.

I don’t get the sensitivity and slack-cutting towards Obama that Charles Murray’s post typified. Obama’s the enemy � a far-left Democrat. We should be attacking him at every weak point. That’s politics.

A pro-Obama emailer whines to me that the Pastor Wright business is “a Swift Boating of Obama.” Well, duh! The Corner on National Review Online

Hmm…Spanking Children May Lead to Risky Sexual Behavior as Adults, Bug or Feature?

Ok, that is an absurd headline but oh my gosh no more absurd than this nonsense being sold by nannies wishing to control our lives. 

Children who are spanked or given some form of physicial punishment by their parents may be more to have sexual problems as adults, a new study finds.

An analysis of four studies by Murray Straus, co-director of the Family Research Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire-Durham, found that children who suffer physical punishment in the form of spanking, hitting or slapping are more likely to engage in risky sexual behavior as adults, it is reported by USA Today.

Haleigh Poutre speaks to the Incompetence of the Bureaucracy that Murdered Terri Schiavo

Life is to be respected…this little girl’s picture should be hung from every social services wall to remind them of the beauty of life.

Longtime readers will remember Haleigh from two years ago. She was the 11-year-old girl in Massachusetts who had been hospitalized after her stepfather allegedly burned her and beat her nearly to death with a baseball bat. Haleigh, in a coma, was kept alive by a feeding tube and ventilator. Doctors said she was virtually brain dead in a persistent vegetative state with no hope of recovery. The Massachusetts Department of Social Services wanted to remove Haleighs feeding and breathing tubes. They called her hopeless. They called her condition irreversible.

As they moved to pull the plug, a miracle happened: She started breathing on her own.

Her case revealed massive, dangerous bureaucratic incompetence and the fallibility of the medical establishment.

Now, the Boston Globe reports that Haleigh Poutre who turned 14 on Sunday is now speaking about the unimaginable abuse she suffered:

Walid Phares endorses Mitt

Some say that McCain’s strongest point is his desire to take the war to the enemy. But to me Bush’s weakest point was the fact that he never properly identified his enemy. Neither has McCain.

Mitt on the otherhand has indeed identified Global Jihadism as the enemy and he did it a long time ago. When I heard him speak in Baton Rouge near the beginning of the race he was talking about Global Jihadism. Don’t we want someone who will take the battle to the enemy instead of reacting to the enemy? I do.

Here is Mr. Phares making that exact point.

Senator McCain says it is “Radical Islam,” and pledges to increase the current level of involvement. On Iraq, the former Navy Pilot says he will continue to fight till there are no more enemies to fight. To me that is a trenches battlefield: We’ll pound them till they have no more trenches. Governor Romney says the enemy is Global Jihadism, and it has more than the one battlefield of Iraq. And because the Jihadists are in control of regimes, interests and omnipresent in the region and worldwide, the US counter strategies cannot and should not be limited to “entrenchment” but to counter attacks, preemptive moves and putting allies forces on the existing and new battlefields. Besides not all confrontations have to be militarily. The difference in wording between the general term “radical Islam” and the focused threat doctrine “Jihadism” says it all. One leads to concentrate one type of power in one place, regardless of what the enemy is and wants to do, and the other concept lead to pinch the foe from many places on multiple levels and decide over the ending process of the conflict.

Honor Killings? Is Yaser Abdel Said a Muslim? Is the Pope Catholic? 2 Dead Daughters…call me suspicious!

I know its evil for me to think that this man is a Muslim after all maybe his name does not indicate it…and maybe his picture does not indicate it.

Yaser Abdel Said

Course his two dead daughters might lead one to believe that he is. After all killing daughters seems to be becoming quite the sport among the fundamentalists Muslims.  What exactly drives a culture to sanction family’s killing their daughters, sisters and wives?  How do we understand a culture that does not bury this sort of behavior under a cloud of condemnation?  Exactly how does a culture like this ever move out of the middle ages?  How arrogant are we to believe we can create Democratic Republics from folks like these?  The central tenet of Democratic Republics is equality.  Are daughters, sisters and wives equal in a culture that condones their murder?

IRVING, Texas —  Police continued searching for a man suspected of shooting his two teenage daughters, including one who called 911 about an hour before officers found them dead in his taxi, police said.

Yaser Abdel Said, 50, of the Dallas suburb of Lewisville, is accused of shooting Sarah Yaser Said, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18, in his taxi Tuesday night and abandoning it in a parking lot, leaving them to die.

Police have not released a motive for the shootings, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported in its online edition Wednesday.

Burn the Heretics! Science in the PC Age

Ben Stein says enough!



Ben Stein, in the new film EXPELLED: No Intelligence Allowed


His heroic and, at times, shocking journey confronting the world?s top scientists, educators and philosophers, regarding the persecution of the many by an elite few.


Coming to a theater near you Spring 2008


Ben travels the world on his quest, and learns an awe-inspiring truth?that bewilders him, then angers him?and then spurs him to action!


Ben realizes that he has been ?Expelled,? and that educators and scientists are being ridiculed, denied tenure and even fired ? for the ?crime? of merely believing that there might be evidence of ?design? in nature, and that perhaps life is not just the result of accidental, random chance.

To which Ben Says: “Enough!” And then gets busy. NOBODY messes with Ben.

The movie overview for Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

Take a guess which station in the sequence this country is visiting right now…

Guess what…it used to be that Republicans at least paid lip service to the idea that Government Programs were a bad idea. Now with the advent of the new “conservative” aka Compassionate Republicans there are no political parties that cater to my desire for limited government intrusion into my life. And so it is a race between the Islamists and Communists to see who can enslave me first. Thanks a bunch compassionate republicans for standing for nothing.

The source of the piece below cannot be ascertained. But the truth of it strikes a chord doesn’t it?

?A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.

The average age of the world?s great civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence:
from bondage to spiritual faith;
from spiritual faith to great courage;
from courage to liberty;
from liberty to abundance;
from abundance to selfishness;
from selfishness to complacency;
from complacency to apathy;
from apathy to dependency;
from dependency back again to bondage.?

Taxation explained to the beer besotted….

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something  like this:

  • The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
  • The fifth would pay $1.
  • The sixth would pay $3.
  • The seventh would pay $7.
  • The eighth would pay $12.
  • The ninth would pay $18.
  • The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.

So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve. “Since you are all such good customers,” he said, “I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20.”Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’  They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

  • The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
  • The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
  • The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
  • The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
  • The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
  • The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings. 

“I only got a dollar out of the $20,”declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,” but he got $10!”  “Yeah, that’s right,” exclaimed the fifth man. “I only saved a dollar, too.  It’s unfair that he got TEN times more than I!”

“That’s true!!” shouted the seventh man. “Why should he get $10 back When I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!”

“Wait a minute,” yelled the first four men in unison. “We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!” The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.

The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine Sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the Bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between All of them for even half of the bill!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

Reason number 1,200,001 to Homeschool, it works better.

Great article about homeschooling.  

Let’s hear it for the home team — they have done it again. Last month, 13-year old Evan O’Dorney of Danville won the National Spelling Bee; Evan is homeschooled. Of those who made it to the finals in Washington, 12.5 percent were homeschooled; of the top seven finishers, three were homeschooled. Last year, 13.5 percent of those making it to Washington for the Spelling Bee finals were homeschooled.

Evan is not alone as a high achieving homeschooled child. The 2003 and 2005 National Geography Bee champions were homeschooled. In 2005, a 16-year-old homeschooled child won the U.S. Chess Championship, making him the youngest player to claim the title since 14-year-old Bobby Fischer won it in 1958. And, they’re athletic to boot; the 2005 girls Gatorade high school soccer player of the year was homeschooled. These results are from a sector that enrolls only a small percentage of America’s children.

Source: On Education / Homeschooling is a viable alternative to public schools 

The most difficult aspect of homeschooling our children has been making sure they have enough friends. We are fortunate that our eldest has some great friends who are also involved in homeschooling. We are less fortunate with our other two children ages 4 and 5. This is a problem that has our full attention.

The Immigration Bill…just when you thought it was safe to respect your Senators

The unholy alliance of supposedly conservative Republicans with Kennedy Democrats is back and they are pissed. Hold on to your country because they are determined to redefine it into something not even the youngest adults among us would recognize in 5 years. Courtesy of Michelle Malkin comes news that the bill is alive. Link to Michelle Malkin: It’s aliiiive!

Here is Teddy Kennedy one of this years Shamnesty bills sponsors making empty promises back in 1965…set aside the question of why Republicans are working with a man who bravely left a girl to die in his car and denied it, just ask yourself if any of these promises were fulfilled:

”Out of deference to the critics, I want to comment on … what the bill will not do. First, our cities will not be flooded with a million immigrants annually. Under the proposed bill, the present level of immigration remains substantially the same … Secondly, the ethnic mix of this country will not be upset … Contrary to the charges in some quarters, S.500 will not inundate America with immigrants from any one country or area, or the most populated and economically deprived nations of Africa and Asia. In the final analysis, the ethnic pattern of immigration under the proposed measure is not expected to change as sharply as the critics seem to think. Thirdly, the bill will not permit the entry of subversive persons, criminals, illiterates, or those with contagious disease or serious mental illness. As I noted a moment ago, no immigrant visa will be issued to a person who is likely to become a public charge … the charges I have mentioned are highly emotional, irrational, and with little foundation in fact. They are out of line with the obligations of responsible citizenship. They breed hate of our heritage.” (Senate Part 1, Book 1, pp. 1-3)

So when they call you a nativist for opposing this rush to import all of the third worlds problems into the United States just quote them the Promise that Kennedy made to this country when he started us down this road 42 years ago. Did he keep the promise?

Then consider that on the FBI’s list of most wanted criminals over 44% are Mexican. Great lets import the entire country eh?

Fun criminals from Mexico...FBI's invite Listing

Want to do something about it??? What shut it down last time was the overwhelming response from the public via phone call’s to the Senators offices in Washington DC (probably the most effective way to protest) and protests at public appearances of those Senators who back this bill. We have tremendous power. Call this number to talk to your Senators in their DC Offices. Don’t forget the amnesty hotline number1-800-417-7666
