This is not the first or last time I’ll say this….

By Patrick Van Roy On March 21st, 2011 at 3:07 am

Good God are we INSANE?  Why are we bombing Ghadafi, by helping the opposition we are aiding Iran. We are witnessing the formation of the Caliphate we don’t need to help it along. Let the animals kill each other, it’ll be just less we have to fight in the long run.

Well it’s time as Thompson would say to whip together a few raw facts, some ole negro wisdom, and put this tale out for all to gape at.  There seems to be a continuing clash of the sane against the insane, earther against spacer, greenie against techie, and the all history encompassing Moore against Christian.

We do live in interesting times, someone find that china man and shoot him. We are witnessing the formation of one Caliphate in the Middle East, they actually believe it is the end times and whether you call him the Mahdi, the 12th Imam or the Muslim Jesus they believe he is here, and he is on their side. Right, Wrong, whether you believe or not they DO, and they are sitting on a source of power to give them the ability to screw with everyone.

So what should we do, kill them all? We could, I mean shit that’s what they want to do to us. Do unto others before they do unto us, that’s what Bush said, but we don’t have the stomach for that, nor should we. So what to do?

There is no replacement for oil our whole world is made from it. Look around you. Don’t even count gasoline, just think can you live without plastic? I doubt it. Everything we use in our daily lives is made out of oil. Forget Medicine, Surgery, food containment, etc etc. There is no replacement for oil and the byproducts that we make from it. At least not yet maybe in the next hundred years someone will find something, but they haven’t yet.

The U.S. spends a minimum of $400 Billion a year on Middle Eastern oil. WHY? Because some little enviro weenie can save an owl, or a whale. Screw them, drill baby, drill. If you believe in peak oil (which I don’t) the U.S. has enough of it’s own oil for at least 200 years. Look at what man has accomplished in the last 100, if you believe we couldn’t top that in the next 100, ye have little faith, let alone little sense.

Hell we have plenty enough to keep the U.S. and the British Isles swimming in both oil and coal. Let the EU buy from Russia, except the French those bastards have been short sheeting every deal to control the machinery that goes to the Persian bastards make them deal with them.

We can not allow the enemy to dictate the terms of our economies, which is exactly what we are doing by buying from the Arabs. It is time to cut them off. We are going to have to fight these bastards sooner or later no matter what we do. Why keep giving them money, spend that $400 Billion here and we’ll not just produce oil but it will spur our internal economy back to life. And after all what’s good for America is good for the world.

Drill Here, Drill Now, and screw everyone else.

THE GREAT CON CON……

By David Vance On March 19th, 2011 at 8:57 am

Did you read that a panel set up to challenge  the erosion of British sovereignty by European courts has been branded a ‘con’ last night.

It emerged that the commission investigating the creation of a British Bill of Rights would be barred from considering whether Britain should withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights. Critics also claimed the commission was ‘dominated’ by Europhiles and human rights lawyers likely to be in favour of the supremacy of the  European courts.

The supposedly independent commission was hurriedly set up by the  Coalition in response to mounting  public outrage at a European ruling ordering Britain to give prisoners  the vote. But Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke announced yesterday that the body will be barred from debating whether  Britain should pull out of the European Convention of Human Rights – the basis for Labour’s controversial Human Rights Act. It will instead have to ‘incorporate and build on all our obligations’ under the Convention.

If the foaming at the mouth Europhile Ken “Let’s join the Euro” Clarke  is involved you KNOW this will deepen our containment within the EUSSR. I recommend you follow the link and read up on the panel put in place – it is outrageously weighted in favour of those who wish to keep us locked IN the Euro-chambers…

SIGN OF THE TIMES….

By David Vance On March 18th, 2011 at 7:20 pm

I see that  Belfast City Council has rejected a proposed plan for bilingual road signs in Belfast.

Twenty-three council members voted against adding Irish or Ulster-Scots to signs in addition to English at a full council meeting. Twenty-one others voted in favour of the change. In January, Regional Development Minister Conor Murphy began a public consultation into making signs bilingual. He said the measure would help his department meet commitments under the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages. Anna Lo, Alliance Party, had previously said the move would ‘ghettoize’ Northern Ireland. A proposal by Sinn Fein’s Caoimhin Mac Giolla Mhin to overturn the decision was rejected by the council.

The very fact that Irish Republicans seek to waste scarce cash in a recession to advance their risible Irish uber alles language agenda is the only sign you need to know of their incalculable stupidity.

What Me Worry? Libya’s Madman’sLaughter

By Mahons On March 18th, 2011 at 5:56 pm

The United Nations No Fly Zone has been approved for Libya.  Some issues for discussion.  First, is it too little too late?  Does it provide any real security or is it to ease the Western conscience?   What are the motives of those who are to be protected?  Are we protecting innocents with this, or merely the other side of the same coin?  Once we are militarily involved, how do we get out?  Do we have the capability to sustain this and meet other obligations?   And whose next?  Yemen fired on its people today.   

Germany, India and Brazil abstained.  Why?  I get that the regimes in China and Russia would abstain (and not participate) but why are those other democracies sitting on their hands?

Whose going to be the muscle here?  The US, The UK and France?  Does the confederacy of despots also known as The Arab League lack planes?   Are we going to have to land on the shores of Tripoli? 

Look, I don’t like Libya’s madman who happens to be responsible for a no fly zone himself (over Lockerbie a few years back).   I’d love to hear that he’s been strung up on a meat hook.  And his evil spawn too.   But if the World ain’t gonna come together and stomp him out and insure the country heads towards freedom and stability, then why should we few (we unhappy few) do it for the World?

This is What Mobocracy Looks Like!

By Patty On March 17th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Public Employee Unions scream:  “This is what Democracy looks like!” but what they obviously mean is:  “This is what Mobocracy looks like!”    Pro-Public Union Madison person writing to  Madison blogger Ann Althouse:

“…NOTICE – YOUR CITY OF MADISON PRIVILEGES HAVE BEEN REVOKED….
We understand that you like to eat on the square. You like the Baked Potato at the Old Fashioned, do you? There were five of us in there last Tuesday. You like to eat at Fresco? We’re in the Overture eating, serving, cooking, playing, and performing. At least twenty of us have worked for Food Fight. You like to fucking drink at FAIR TRADE  do you? At FAIR TRADE? You are citizen-BANNED from Fair Trade. We will Walker you  straight out of the place whenever you show up. We are at every coffee shop on State, open to close, all the time. We will hang up wanted posters of you everywhere you like  to go. We will picket on public property as close to your house as we can every day.

We will harrass the ever loving shit out of you all the time. Campus is OCCUPIED. State street is OCCUPIED. The Square is OCCUPIED. Vilas, Schenk’s Corners, Atwood, Willy Street – Occupied, Occupied, Occupied, Occupied. Did you really think it was all about the Capitol? Fuck the Capitol, we are the CITY.”

Death threats. Intimidation. Vandalism. It’s Public Employee Unions versus the Priivate Citizen Taxpayer —  and the Public Employee Unions have “taken it to the streets.”   Mobocracy.
Where are President Obama’s Civility Policemen when you need them?

It Isn’t Easy Being Orange on St. Paddy’s Day

By Mahons On March 17th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Don’t you feel sorry for the poor Unionists on St. Patrick’s Day.  Surrounded by a world wearing green, parading Pats and Mikes without bowler hats waving the tricolors – the poor unionist community has it hard today.  Sure St. Patrick was a Saint and all and roamed around the northern part of the island, but the damned nationalists use his day to celebrate Irishness!  The nerve!  Why can’t they pine for the days of oppression and want?  And to top it off, that orgy of papist rabble known as the New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade is 250 years old – AND IT WAS STARTED BY PROTESTANTS!  Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.  I’ll bet Ian Paisley rues marching in that first one.

However, in these less tense times I feel it is my duty as a plastic paddy to offer the Unionist Community solace and alternate reasons to celebrate today. 

How about partying in honor of St. Gertrude of Nivelles? It is her feast day today as well.  She was a Benedictine Abbess and is the patroness of travelers (not that kind) and gardeners.

Doesn’t grab you?  Well then it is also the feast day of St. Jan Sarkander who was martyred by those nasty Hussites in 1620.  The Hussites were the forerunners of the Protestant reformation and racked and tortured poor Jan.   Ouch. 

Course everyone loves St. Joseph of Arimathea – the ultimate collector (he asked Pilate for Christ’s body).   A virtuous and righteous man according to the good book.   It is Joe’s feast day today as well.

Unmoved?  How about ordering Chinese takeaway and celebrating Bl Peter Lieou, a martyr in China who was strangled while trying to comfort Christians in prison in the 19th Century.   March 17th is his feast day too.

If all else fails, celebrate St. Paul of Cyprus, a martyr for the cause of venerating icons (I’d prefer to go for something a little more martyr-worthy myself, perhaps for venerating whiskey) .  Poor Paul of Cyprus ran afoul of the Byzantine Empire’s prohibition on venerating icons, so he was tortured and burned.  Imagine what they would do to Elvis fans.   Paul of Cyprus shares March 17th as a feast day.

So lighten up all those who find themselves the Ebenezer Scrooges of St. Patrick’s Day.  God made more Saints, there are others you can celebrate instead of St. Patrick.  Put on a happy face.

Picking a Winner

By Patty On March 17th, 2011 at 7:49 pm

Graphic from Freeper paulycy. From Big Government:

Clinton’s most self-indulgent moment came when when he urged Lewinsky to perform oral sex on him while he took a phone call from a Congressman. However, the November 17, 1995 incident occured in private, the Congressman did not suspect anything was amiss and it was not revealed until years later as part of the Starr investigation.

Obama’s most self-indulgent moment was broadcast on national television this week when, in the midst of numerous crises crying out for American leadership, he took time to film his picks for the NCAA basketball tournament brackets for broadcast by the ESPN sports network.

This follows a two-year string of self-indulgences by Obama since he became president that has demonstrated to the world that nothing comes before Obama’s me-time.

Most famously, Obama did not interrupt his 2009 luxury Christmas vacation in Hawaii when an Islamist terrorist tried to blow a passenger jet out of the sky over Detroit on Christmas Day. Obama could barely be moved to speak to the nation about the attack which came within a failed detonator of succeeding.

Now, with the Middle East in flames and America’s closest Asian ally teetering on collapse from the triple-whammy of a 9.0 earthquake, subsequent apocalytic tsunami and multiple nuclear power plant failures, Obama has spent his time golfing, partying with the press, fundraising, hanging out with athletes, prepping for his NCAA brackets presentation and getting ready for the Obama family taxpayer funded Spring Break trip to Rio de Janeiro this weekend.

 

Do you remember when Michael Moore mocked President Bush’s  immediate reaction in the wake of the 9/11 attack? The news of the 9/11 attack was whispered in President Bush’s ear as he read My Pet Goat to a group of young school children. And then,  rather than scream and cry, President Bush took time to finish the book. Compare and contrast this 9 minutes –  or so – that Bush waited before  responding to the 9/11 attacks with the dithering that is now characteristic of our President Obama.
