     Sometimes I cruise the Net simply to accquaint myself with various strains of rhetoric. I find this useful as it helps me to spot when people who are presenting themselves as moderates are actually pushing much more extreme agendas than they let on. Second Seedline doctrine is a good example of this.

     Many conspiracy theorists appearing in connection with seemingly more mainstream things like the 9/11 "Truthers" movement (Rosie O'Donn...

From Sheryl Crow's Biodiesel Bus Blog (via Wapo)

 

Crow (4/19, Springfield, Tenn.): I have spent the better part of this tour trying to come up with easy ways for us all to become a part of the solution to global warming. Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating. One of my favorites is in the area of forest conservation which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many squar...

Fact 1: There are very few Warriors who actively fight the enemy in armed combat in the Army. I would put this percentage at 15% or less of the active duty force and I frankly think that is an overestimation.

Fact 2: The Army is full of pogue retards who desperately want to be thought of as Warriors. they often seek to associate themselves with the Iraq or Afghan Wars by using lots of jargon like "Battlespace", "Warfighter", and give their pogue staff titles like "Battle Captain".

      Ok you miserable bags of shit : I have had it. I have been a hell of a lot more tolerant and a lot less vulgar since my return from blogging hiatus but you excerable, defeatist, Anti-American, traitorous fuckbags have found a way to piss me off again. Be thankful I am not drunk while writing this as that would prompt even more invective.

     Not only are you applauding the deaths of Americans in Iraq (an act worthy of a treason conviction i...

     Here is the indirect reason for this entry. Via Espn of all things.

"At a marina near Russell Springs, workers spent Monday moving million-dollar houseboats to moorings where they can stay afloat after the water recedes.

"We're kind of at a loss," said Estelee Slusser, who operates the Alligator Dock No. 1 marina. "It has just happened so quickly. We really don't know what to do."

The Army Corps notified local officials and business owners before making the plan...

     *Disclaimer : I do not support any candidates as of yet nor does Barack Obama's politics come anywhere near my own.

/rant on

     So Barack Obama apparently attended a Madrassa in Indonesia for a few years as a young child. I could give a damn. Here is why:

 

- The guy verifiably went back to live with his maternal grandparents in Hawaii by age 10.

- Religious programming of any ilk works poorly without constant re-enforcement.

     I don't understand why the U.S. even bothers with the U.N. and it's toothless appeasement branches like the IAEA anymore. (from Yahoo News)

El Baradei (Head Eunuch of the IAEA) -

"I don't think sanctions will resolve the issue. I think sanctions, in my view, could lead to escalation on both sides,"

      Needless to say he also opposes military action of any kind. In fact it really seems that El Baradei thinks the only solution for the ...

     Remember all the pre-2004/2006 election hype about how the Republicans would be re-instating the draft if they were re-elected? Well we just passed the 2006 elections and sure enough there is a bill being introduced to re-instate the draft... but not by Republicans. This is Charlie Rangel's (D-NY) 3rd attempt to re-instate the draft actually:

 From Newsday.com and the AP -

"Rep. Charles Rangel, a fierce opponent of the Iraq war, on Thursday called for a new mi...

     I wonder if sheepherders in Anatolia ever had to deal with being accused of fearmongering against wolves?

          Grey the Shepherd "Hey Bobby! That Wolf is getting real close to your sheep! Looks mighty hungry too!"

          Bobby the P.C. Shepherd : "Shut up Grey, you're just rascist against Wolves! Most Wolves don't kill sheep, they just live peacfully in the f...

     I will continue to flog this deceased equine because the hits just won't stop coming. This week from The Guardian :

"An undercover investigation has revealed disturbing evidence of Islamic extremism at a number of Britain's leading mosques and Muslim institutions, including an organisation praised by the Prime Minister.""Secret video footage reveals Muslim preachers exhorting followers to prepare for jihad, to hit girls for not wearing the hijab, and to create a 'stat...

     Many people took me to task over rasing the issue of the UK's steady march towards Dhimmitude in these articles. Today Mr. Sarfraz Manzoor's piece in the Guardian argues that the real problem is that the UK simply isn't Muslim enough.

     Regarding the London bombings by Muslim men :

"the dominant response to the London bombings was confusion over how anyone raised in this country could commit such atrocities...

Whether the danger is religi...

     Some commentors have taken me to task over two of my recent articles highlighting the possibility that the UK and Europe are slowly drowning under a slow but rising tide of Politically Correct Dhimmitude. Some of them seem almost desperate to believe that I and others are exaggerating, even to the point of mounting a "defense" that goes something like this (paraphrased):

"It isn't bad that Christmas references are off limits in many cities in the UK because ...

      Next time you see Rosemary being touted as "an unlikely peace activist" take it with a grain of salt. The lady is a dyed in the wool leftist who despises America. From her own article on her own site:

"The United States owes reparations to the people of Iran. How much should be paid for the 1953 coup? How much is a democracy worth? Here's a thought. Suppose the U.S. gave all of its nuclear weapons to Iran. Would that be a win, win, win scenario? The world would ...

     Bill Roggio (embedded blogger in Fallujah) has a great update on the state of the Iraqi military up on his site. Of particular interest to me was his break down of Iraqi Army failures and successes. I find the contrast between their military and ours fascinating (my comments below). Some excerpts: (Emphasis mine. – GW)


"Iraqi Army Shortcomings


Logistics. The IA logistical system is broken at the battalion, brigade, division and Ministry of Defense levels. Reque...

      I have a very geeky intelligence article for later but for now I want to update the article I wrote about the creeping effects of Islamism across Europe and Britain. Many commentors to the original article simply couldn't beleive the the problem is as serious or as pervasive as the linked content would seem to have suggested. For those folks I give you this tidbit from the mornings news perusal.
