Sensible

Captain Ed has a good post up about Mary Cheney's decision to have a child.

Mary Cheney chose to conceive a child, and broke no laws in doing so. She's an adult and can support the child. The baby will have a supportive extended family, including the Vice President and Mrs. Cheney, who have five grandchildren already. It's really none of our business whether Mary Cheney wants to bear a child or not, as long as she's not killing the child.

Let's try to keep the hysteria down to a minimum. Calling a child unconscionable or fretting about its ability to bond with a parent outside of government recognition of a relationship is nothing more than cheap exploitation of a person merely for her publicity value. Both sides should be ashamed of themselves.


I had a good long post written, and then my computer ate it. So I'll give you the condensed version:

No one group has a claim on being "better" at raising a child. And I submit to you that Mary Cheney's child is a thousand times better off than the child of a heterosexual addict who keeps doing her drug of choice even while carrying the child. By turning this into a straight-vs-gay issue, people are losing sight of the real question, which is "What is best for the child?"

Face it, folks. You've all known someone who was heterosexual, and a terrible parent. Sexuality in my mind has very little to do with how well you can be a parent.

Some people may call me a hypocrite on this due to my opposition to gay marriage. So be it. But I would challenge those people to provide an example of how a gay parent is worse than a straight parent, given all other things being equal.

So, for the groups attacking Mary Cheney because she's a homosexual who's having a child:

Perhaps you can focus your attention on the high level of divorce in this country, which has a worse effect on the child than who mommy or daddy is sleeping with. Marriage is supposed to be a sacred vow, not just between two people, but between the couple and God as well, and the lack of attention to that detail may just be part of the reason why more people are unmarried than married in America. Let's turn marriage back into something special, rather than just a legally binding agreement, before we start decrying who's raising a child.

As as for the gay groups attacking Mary Cheney because of her father's views....

Grow the fuck up. I can't think of a better way to show that you're nothing more than partisan shitstains than beating up on Cheney's daughter because of Dick Cheney's own views.

And everybody, let's focus on the important matter: Is that child going to be raised in a stable, loving home, where they will get what they need to grow and succeed? Given that Cheney and her partner have been together for 15 years, that the Cheney's have an extended family that will support the child, I would hazard a guess of "Yes".

Two good quotes

From one article. The first quote is from a writer you may have heard of: C.S. Lewis

We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.—C. S. Lewis


And that quote is at the end of the piece, which contains this bit of truth.

A commander-in-chief who refuses to command. A Congress that is unable to govern. A political class that has lost the will to defeat America’s enemies. An entire subset of our own nation that actively works for her defeat.


Yeah, that about sums it up.

Hey....

Where the hell did all the other bloggers go?

Tim?

TVE?

Bueller?

Anyone?

Do you know what today is?

December 7th. Sixty-five years ago today, the Japanese Imperial Navy attacked Pearl Harbor and pulled the USA into World War Two.

I don't think I need to remind anyone of what happened in the years following.

So take a moment today and say a prayer for all those that lost their lives in Pearl Harbor, Schofield Barracks, and other military bases on Oahu.

I am purposely keeping this post non-political, so please don't extrapolate anything in the comments. This is to remember the fallen, nothing more.

The Defeatocrats

Or as I like to call them (as if you didn't notice) the American Communist Party, willing to bring America down by any means necessary.

Democratic leaders are poised to gut America’s missile defense - at the same time North Korea and Iran are testing long-range missiles that can strike the U.S. and its allies, including Israel, Japan and Britain.

The incoming chairman of the Senate’s Armed Services Committee is Carl Levin. Levin, a Michigan Democrat, has long been a foe of missile defense. In 1980s, he worried that President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative — which aimed to develop technology to destroy Soviet missiles during all phases of flight — was “destabilizing.”

Today Sen. Levin sings the same tune in a different key. “They’ve not done the operational testing yet that is convincing,” said Senator Levin during a post-election press conference. He was referring to the Ground based Missile Defense [GMD] system being installed in Alaska and California, to defend against North Korean missiles. He added that he favors stalling purchases of interceptor missiles - vital for missile defense — until after testing is complete.

In short, Sen. Levin and other longtime opponents of missile defense plan to use “testing” - set to an unrealistically high level - to stop missile defense.


Now, these are the same feckless jellyfish who constantly kiss up to dictators and thugs the world around. Their leaders and mentors kiss up to communists every chance they get, and they have a historical track record of destroying our military, either through cutting funding or simply putting our troops in a no-win situation. Now it looks like they're going to kill the very system that could protect us from crazy nutjobs with nukes like Kimmy Dimmy Ding Dong or Iranian theocrat Mahmoud Amahmentaljob.

Gee, great.

Zell Miller had it right: if the Dems get their way, our troops will be armed with nothing more lethal than spitballs. The “stability”-obsessed chickenshits can whine all they like about that “soft on defense” label, but they damned sure got it the old fashioned way: they earned it. And they’re going to keep right on earning it next session of Congress, you betcher. It’s the men that carry the guns for the rest of us that’ll suffer for Democrat obtuseness and negligence, as usual; good thing those folks are all too damned stupid and desperate to know the difference, right, libs?


When every action they take goes against the best intrests of this country, then they can be called anti-American. Plain and simple.

Why I don't buy many poltical books

Because most of them are full of crap. Especially ones written by insane moonbat ex-presidents.

President Carter's book on the Middle East, a title too inflammatory to even print, is not based on unvarnished analyses; it is replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions, and simply invented segments. Aside from the one-sided nature of the book, meant to provoke, there are recollections cited from meetings where I was the third person in the room, and my notes of those meetings show little similarity to points claimed in the book. Being a former President does not give one a unique privilege to invent information or to unpack it with cuts, deftly slanted to provide a particular outlook.


Ouch. But then, Jimmah Cah-duh has been showing his ass on a regular basis ever since Bush 43 was elected. I don't know if it's just senility or if he's actually an anti-American idiot. Right now, I would say he's an anti-American idiot, given that he's french-kissed just about every anti-American commie dictator he could get his hands on. Castro, Chavez, Kimmy Dimmy Ding Dong, any communist who spews out their hatred of America gets a big 'ol hug from Jimmah.

He's a special kind of guy, ain't he?

Something else I wanted to bring to your attention is this little post about the Rules of Engagement in Iraq. (Found at Instapundit)

Consider the psychology of the warrior. Even if not a single Soldier or Marine had died as a result of hesitation due to ROE (that is, even if this danger is only potential and has not become actualized), the psychology of fear has set in. Not fear of the enemy, but fear of firing a weapon. This fear can cause hesitation, and even the enemy knows the U.S. ROE and can and has taken advantage of them. Hence, there is increased danger for our troops, and they know it.

What we need are robust rules of engagement. What we have are confused Soldiers and Marines, afraid to fire their weapons.


If we lose this war, and I am open to the possibility that we can lose it.... if we lose this war, it will be for the exact same reasons that we lost Viet Nam and Somalia:

Because the Dimocrats, the American Communist Party, and their enablers, will have brought about the downfall of the troops. The Dimocrats and their enablers will have prevented the American military from doing their job. Just like when LBJ poked at a map and said "Y'all cain't bomb heyar, and y'all cain't bomb heyar", thus putting most of North Viet Nam (including Hanoi) off limits to our bombers, it will be the Dimocrats who will not allow the military to do their job in Iraq.

When you prevent the troops from doing their job, you simply turn them into targets. That that's how you lose a war.

Does Bush deserve some blame? Oh, certainly. He could have ended a lot of the bullshit some time ago by calling the American Communists into the carpet and having them explain their lies in front of a TV camera. Instead, what we have had was six years of lies, smears, mudslinging, and falsehoods from the American Communists, and it's hurt us as a country. Now the American Communist Party has won control of Congress, and it's only going to get worse. So yes, I think we can lose the war on Terror, just like we lost Viet Nam. And we can lay it all out at the feet of the very same people. Literally.

Remember folks, the Dimocrats aren't anti-war, they're just on the other side.

I want one Dimocrat to prove him wrong

cause it ain't gonna happen.

Democrats' devious deeds are too numerous to be fully recounted, but here at least are some of the highlights:

* They have tried to prevent us from listening on terrorists' phone calls
* They have sought to stop us from properly interrogating captured terrorists
* They have tried to stop us from monitoring terrorists' financial transactions
* They have revealed the existence of secret national security programs
* They have opposed vital components of the Patriot Act
* They have sought to confer unmerited legal rights on terrorists
* They have opposed profiling to identify the terrorists in our midst
* They have impugned and demeaned our military
* They have insinuated that the president is a war criminal
* They have forced the resignation of a committed defense secretary
* They have repeatedly tried to de-legitimize our war effort
* They want to quit the battlefield in the midst of war.


Well, when I call the Dimocrats a bunch of anti-American communists, do you think I'm just using hyperbole?

To see just how bad things really are, ponder this question: If the terrorists were represented by a party in our political system, how would their foreign policy program substantially differ from that of the present-day democrats?


Wait a second here... IF the terrorists were represented by a party in our political system? Just what does he mean, "IF"? The terrorists are represented by a party, and it's the Dimocrats. Because if it hurts Bush and make American look bad, the Dimocrats are A-OK with it.

Go read the whole thing, folks. And contemplate just how truly screwed we are with the American Communist Party taking power in January.

Who woulda thunk it?

fwance can launch an onslaught! Too bad it's against rebels in a country that was victim to fwench imperialism.

Oh yeah, that thing that nobody ever talks about: other countries actually practicing imperialism. I guess they're too busy howling about supposed American imperialism to focus on, y'know, REAL imperialsim.

Or maybe is just the fact that the people screaming about American "imperialism" are a bunch of brain-dead, kool-aid guzzing, retarded fucksticks who are too stupid to be allowed to breed.

Maybe.

Wicked cool!

Wanna go to the moon? All you youngsters out there better get ready, because we'll be in space relatively soon.

Hey, have you heard what Gates said?

I bet if you've been checking out the headlines, what you've seen is "GATES SAYS US NOT WINNING IN IRAQ!!!!! QUAGMIRE! VIET NAM! OH, THE HUMANITY!"

When in fact, he said we're neither winning nor losing. Gosh, what media bias?

By the way, since the American Communists will be taking power next January, you can expect more of the same, tired, recycled bullshit from them, only this time thrown with greater force since they've proven they can win with it. I don't know if this country can stand two years of anti-American communists at the helm. I guess we'll find out.

As for the rest of the news

Quite honestly, my blood pressure needed a break. It's not a good thing when you walk into a doctor's office and he asks "GOOD GOD, what have you been DOING to yourself?!?!"

I'm livin' the life, doc!

Gah. Back to surfing around the web looking for Christmas presents.

OK, OK, here's one story that I'll pass along: The Navy has told San Francisco to take a hike.

Damn, it's about time. I say we just build a fifty foot wall around the city and fill it with water. Let it peel off and form it's own little communist city-state. That way, when it completely goes to hell, we can just sit back and laugh, rather than pull it out of the pit that it's been digging for the past five decades.

Let's talk quarterbacks

What is up with Rex Grossman? If Chicago didn't have a good D, they'd be 6-6 right now. Grossman isn't doing his team any favors.

Eli Manning - at least he didn't lose the game this week. The defense did that.

Vick gets a win. Now if his receivers can actually keep catching the ball, they can win a few more. But the way the Falcons are playing, they should just hike the ball and have the entire offense block for Vick. They'd get more yards that way.

Hasselback - *sigh* I've been rooting for the Seahawks since 1984, but I have to admit that if they played in the NFC East instead of the NFC West, they'd be in the middle of their division instead of at the top.

Still, I'm enjoying watching him play again. We'll see what happens come playoff time.

Jay Cutler - I don't care if he's the second coming of John Frigging Elway, it was too early to start him. He should been seasoned a bit more before he was tossed into the meat grinder.

So, Brittany Spears flashed her naughty bits....

Folks....

WHO CARES!?!?!?!?!

Let me see if I can sum up how I feel about this, shall we?

Brittany Spears is a totally and completely made-up talent, taken from the backwoods of the South and turned into a plastic pop princess. Her music isn't really even hers, it's been written and created by someone else and she's just told to sing it. She's told what to sing, how to sing, how to dress, how to dance, how to act, and the producers counted on young men drooling over her to make money with her fake act. Do you think she dressed like a cheap slut by accident? Hell no, she was TOLD to dress that way, and it worked. She made people MILLIONS.

She can nominally be called a musician, but I wouldn't call her an artist by any stretch.

Now, you have a plastic princess who's used her 15 minutes of fame to date Justin Timberlake (boy, did he ever dodge a bullet, eh?), marry a sleazy little backup dancing fuckstick, get knocked up with the fuckstick's spawn, and act like a trailer-trash floozy. Now, the sleazy backup dancing fuckstick has shown himself to be the lower lifeform we all said he was, the music career is pretty much gone, and Brit wants to find a way to get back in the papers. So what does she do? She flashes a piece of flesh that's so used up right now that I don't even want to think about it, much less look at it.

You know, I actually feel somewhat sorry for Brittany Spears right about now. She was used. She was used by people who wanted her to act like a slut because they knew it would make money. She was built up by the music companies, rode hard, and put away wet. And you know what's worse? Her parents allowed her to be used. I guess they cared more about the money that her well being.

So now that she's yesterday's news, she's trying to get back to page one. But the actions and behavior that people found appealing when she was 17 doesn't have the same effect. Maybe it's because instead of fantasizing about her, they realize that she has two kids, and that her going out drinking with two other sleazy wenches isn't the best example of parenthood. Maybe it's the fact that her soon-to-be ex is such a worthless bottom feeder that NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY wants to be with her after him. Kinda like getting into a hot tub right after a leper has finished using it. Thanks but no thanks, and I want to go get an antibiotics shot for just thinking about that subject.

Anyways, here's my bottom line: I don't want to see Ms. Spears. Ever. I'd be happy if she would go back to Louisiana and stay silent for the rest of her natural life. For that matter, I don't want to see, hear, or know about Paris Hilton. How in the name of all that's holy can a skinny blonde skanky whore be in the news so much? I don't get it. I guess I never will. And Lindsey Lohann (I don't care if it's spelled wrong) was good looking before she went for the crackwhore look. Here's a hint, Lindsy: If I can see your shoulder joints sticking out from across the room, you need to EAT A FUCKING CHEESEBURGER! I can't stand all three of them at this point.

Gah. I need to go shower after this post.

By the way, if you want to know my opinion about skinny women, it can be found here.

I know I've been AWOL

Whaddya gonna do? Stop paying me?

That's part of my job. Some days I have time on my hands, and some days I'm so damn busy that I have to steal time just to breathe. That's life. Anyways, I've got a few links for you to peruse at your convenience.

First up, via Cold Fury, is the Alabama Liberation Front, with "Everybody knows....", yet another hard look at the sheeple in the MSM.

Thus, whatever liberals generally believe at any given time can be understood to function as conventional wisdom within the media. "Everybody knows" that Bush is stupid, that Cheney is a fascist warmonger, and that the GOP is under the control of neocons, Halliburton and "Christianists." Most of all, "everybody knows" that the war in Iraq is another Vietnam -- a "quagmire" in need of "an exit strategy."

It's Heaven's Gate, you see? Cult members knew that there was a spaceship behind that comet, because one could not believe otherwise and remain a member. To the extent that they actually studied the facts about the Hale-Bopp comet (and they were fairly obsessed with it), they did so only with the purpose of finding "evidence" to confirm the unquestionable belief. And this backward way of thinking is deeply related to group psychology.


Whenever I feel the urge to pick up a newspaper, I have a mental image of the reporter covered in curly fleece, going "baaaaaaa!" while holding a notepad in their perfectly manicured hooves. I refuse to support the Dimocrat propaganda machine.

Up next: From Stop the ACLU, a video of the Westboro Baptist "Church" being chased away from a funeral.

Look, this "church" is only called a church in order to get a tax-exempt status. It's a "church" in the same way as the Aryan Nations had their "church" in which they preached their hate. It's not a church at all, it's a festival of hatred being spewed at America and all things associated with this country. And as far as I'm concerned, Fred Phelps is reason enough to make a fist to the nose of an asshole like him "free speech". Phelps is the worst type of manipulator; he knows the law better than most lawyers, and he uses that knowledge to do as many foul, vile things he possibly can and technically not break the law. Or let me put it this way: I would gladly go to jail for the chance to beat Phelps with an axe handle until the wood broke.

Go read through those two, if you would.
