Sea of Glass

Let's start making a few. Or at least flatten everything in a two mile diameter and then make the rubble bounce.

But why, you ask?

Here's why.

When Alan began to cry from hunger, Dzandarova was allowed to join several other mothers in an adjacent room, which had its own water and was several degrees cooler.

After a former local political leader visited the school Thursday, the women in the adjacent room were told there was "good news": They would be released.

"They said, 'Pack your things quickly, and take your babies with you,' " Dzandarova said.

Shortly after, she learned that she would have to choose between taking her son or her daughter.

Dzandarova had both Alan and Alana with her and made a snap decision to pass Alana to her 16-year-old sister-in-law. But the guerrillas saw through the ruse and refused to allow her to take the older child.

"Alana was clinging to me and holding my hand firmly. But they separated us, and said: 'You go with the boy. Your sister can stay here with her.' I cried. I begged them. Alana cried. The women around us wept. One of the Chechens said: 'If you don't go now, you don't go at all. You stay here with your children … and we will shoot all of you.' "

She couldn't save both of them. She could only die with both of them — or save one of them and herself.

"I didn't have time to think what I was doing," she said. "I pressed Alan even stronger to myself, and I went out, and I heard all the time how my daughter was crying and calling for me behind my back. I thought my heart would break into pieces there and then."
(emphasis mine)

What kind of inhuman scum forces a mother to make that choice? The brutal torture of women and children.......


These scum sucking parasites SHOT CHILDREN IN THE BACK!

Kill them. Kill them all. Find every terrorist training camp and bomb it flat. Find every person who supports terrorists and kill them all. Kill the entire family. Salt the earth where they live. Find anyone who gives money to terrorism and kill them. Find anyone harboring terrorists and kill them. Kill them all.

Find villages who help terrorists and bomb it until nothing lives. Hunt them down and kill them. Find their families and kill them as well. Destroy anything and everything that the terrorists use. Napalm their villages, salt the earth, and plow it under. Leave nothing standing, nothing remaining. Find where their parents live and kill them as well. I want to inflict more pain and suffering on these oxygen thiefs than anyone ever thought possible. I would gladly find the person who ordered this mass murder and cut their throat. I would reach into their neck and yank their tongue out with my bare hands, and laugh while they drowned to death in their own blood. These people are not human, they are parasites feeding on humanity and destroying it in the process.




156 children dead...

...and some people say there's no World War afoot.

The Council Has Spoken! Twice!

This week's winners in the Watcher of Weasels Council are Peter's Comment Touched Me Deeply by e-Claire, and The Big Lie: Still Going! by Dislogue.

The top vote getters in the August 27th voting (I was in MA) were -

Letters From La-La Land by Damnum Absque Injuria and UN Inaction by Alpha Patriot for Council Members, and I Attempt a Swift Ad by JustOneMinute for the Non-Council entry.

Best line I heard today

Lovely Linkies

The second comment here is a good one, a little chuckle amidst a really, really nasty event.

The Associated Press lied about boos for President Clinton at a Bush campaign rally.


More here.

Bush sends a Dear John letter.

Democrats turn violent in West Virginia.

What An Entrance

Last night at the Republican National Convention, the President made (IMO) an awesome entrance. After a nice video warm up, two lighted panels moved opposite directions toward each other between the two large screens on either side of the stage and crossed in the center revealing the President standing behind where they'd met. There were many impressive performances, but (as a fan of G.W.) that was my favorite moment. I love Sara Evans, and appreciated her musical performance as well as the Harlem Choir, and Michael W. Smith. My favorite speech is a toss up between Arnold and G.W. with George Pataki, Tommy Franks, Michael Steele, John McCain, Rudy Guiliani, Zell Miller and Elisabeth Hasselbeck all close behind. The best part is that I know exactly how those delegates felt. I wish I had been there. Instead, I'll settle for purchasing the DVDs from C-SPAN for a small fotune. I'm only getting nights 2 and 4 for the time being. I'll get the rest later on. They'll replay some of the speeches this Saturday so I may be able to fill in a few gaps then.

I'm sure the donkeys would love for everyone to believe that the whole convention was one Zell Miller speech after another. Not so. Especially not so in regards to President Bush. One of my favorite speeches came from George Pataki who spent equal time on praising Bush and damning Kerry. Flipper will do more damage to himself than we ever could. Look at his infantile tirade just MOMENTS after our convention wrapped. Scared much, Flipper? I loved Governor Pataki's spin on the DNC convention theme, "Hype is on the way." I'll go further. Hype is HERE! Kerry blusters about "questioning his patriotism" Flipper. Just your honesty, integrity, character, and leadership ability. On all points he has been found wanting......badly. How hypocritical is it to blast people for questioning your "patriotism" only to blast someone else for their military service or lack there of in the same breath?! He's bitter. He's wounded. And he thinks his medals (the ones he THREW OVER THE WHITE HOUSE FENCE) earn him a free pass. Arrogance. "I don't fall down." Sure, you don't. "That son of a bitch knocked me down." That "son of a bitch" was there to take a bullet for your sorry ass. "They raped, cut off heads,......" Traitor! "Christmas in Cambodia" Liar! A late night rally RIGHT after the GOP convention wraps. Desperate Loser.

Enjoy the king you've picked donkeys, because I am damn PROUD to call George W. my President! :)

The Kerry Reaction

Wizbang says Senator Kerry "is cratering".

UPDATE: "Petulant"

Losing the Peace

In case you desire more details about President Bush's citation of a pessimistic New York Times piece from 1946, you can find it here.

That was 7 January 1946. V-E Day was 8 May 1945.

Piss off a GFW

That would be Gun Fearing Wussy, by the way. SondraK held a contest inspired by an anti-gun poster supposedly drawn by a child. The winner of Sondra's contest got his entry put onto a t-shirt.

Well, the t-shirts are ready.

Although my entry didn't win (despite the sheer amount of ass-kissing I put into it!) the shirts still have a near and dear place in my heart. Heh. You can figure out why.

Tom Vilsac - Retard

Metaphor is a WONDERFUL thing.

Iowa Governor *spit* Tom Vilsac *spit* on Kerry's eventual response to the Republican National Convention:

When John Kerry was captain of his swift boat in Vietnam he and the other men decided they had had enough. And so on the next ambush, they decided they would head right into the ambush site. He did just that, and beached the boat and charged right in. At 11:30 tonight [when he resumes his campaign], John Kerry is going to turn that boat around and he’s going to beach it."

HAW!!!! No! They aren't trying to sell Kerry on his military service alone. They aren't making that an By all means, Senator, don't let us stop you from Beaching your campaign! Only, try to be just as "courageous" as you were for the "real" Silver Star incident. :)


It was a sunny Saturday morning on the course and a man was beginning his pre-shot routine, visualizing his upcoming shot, when a voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker.

"Would the gentleman on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee please!!"

He was still deep in his routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption.

Again the announcement, "Would the MAN on the WOMEN'S tee kindly back up to the men's tee."

He simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating.

Once more the announcer yelled, "Would the man on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee, PLEASE!"

He finally stopped, turned, looked through the clubhouse window directly at the person with the mike and shouted back, "Would the person in the clubhouse kindly shut the hell up and let me play my second shot?"

Lovey Lovey Linkey Linkey

I need to do some work tonight. But first, I hereby give you LGF.

AND - if anyone encounters video of Zell Miller tearing Chris Matthews a new ass on Hardball, please, gimme.

By the way, here's how AP describes it:

Vice President Dick Cheney unleashed a stinging attack on Sen. John Kerry Wednesday night, ridiculing him as a politician who has made a career out of changing his mind. "More wrong, more weak and more wobbly than any other national figure," agreed Sen. Zell Miller, a Democratic keynoter at the Republican National Convention.
You got that? Miller "agreed" with what Cheney said before Cheney said it.

I get so confused sometimes.

I forgot...

...why I started searching for John Kerry photos when I got sidetracked by his use of Poland Springs water despite the unsavory nature of its producers.

Now I remember.

The Miller Speech


I don't think I've ever seen such a public verbal horsewhipping than the one that Zell Miller just administered to John Fonda Kerry.

That was the equivalent of taking a nail-studded gauntlet, jamming it up Kerry's ass, yanking out his spleen, and slapping him across the face with it several times. I'm literally in awe. I'll post the transcript when I can.


We all know John Kerry has been sliding in the polls.

Well it just gets worse from here!

The folks over at Democratic Underpants have been all over Poland Springs like Michael Moore at a Chinese buffet.

Apparently (or allegedly), the spring water peddling rats have been depleting aquifers.


Now, take a gander at what John Kerry's been drinkin':

In fact, Nestle, who own Poland Springs, have been sued for making false claims about their product.

Also, Nestle has been roundly criticized for their factory conditions and baby formula policies.

And oh yeah, Nestle is headquartered in Switzerland.


John Kerry drinks bottled water
that is
produced using enviromentally-deleterious practices
and is
sold by a multinational corporation
that employs
questionable marketing practices
whose Chief Profiteers
who show reckless disregard for babies

Let's street theater his ass!

Violent Protesters

I posted this in the comments down below, but I thought it deserved it's own link. Outside the Perimiter has links to a video that shows the so-called "peacefull" protesters attacking a group of ProtestWarrior folks.

It's not quite work safe; lots of crude language, all of it from the brain-dead leftists. It's 1984 in modern day video. I can't believe that some idiot who's tearing up signs and trying to prevent someone from having their say can scream "You hate free speech!" at the same time. Doubleplus ungood!

Take a good, long, hard look. Those aren't Americans. I don't care where they were born, they have abdicated the very values that make a person American. I don't care where they live, they have adopted the tactics of our enemies.

Thus, they have become our enemies.

AIDS demonstrators disrupted a Republican youth gathering on the floor of the party convention Wednesday, shortly after President Bush's twin daughters left the stage.

At least one delegate was slightly injured. Suhr Daniel, 20, of Milwaukee, said he was punched in the head by a protester. He had a cut near his temple and the side of his face was reddened.

My Eyes Have Seen - The 2004 Farm Progress Show. A Story of American Conservative Republicans

I would like to preface this entry into this growing conservative resource that I call "The 4" with a statement of appreciation for members of our online community. Readers/contributors/ideological brethren must know that we are all appreciated. The internet has given us a meeting place of limitless practicality. Let us cherish and preserve it as the hallmark of freedom that it is. Thank you.

Decisions and Resolve:

Thank you, Mom. Today I attended a rally for our 43rd President, George W. Bush. It was held at the 2004 Farm Progress Show. I do not have the official stats, but I've been told that 16,000 tickets were disseminated as requested. We arrived at the ticket pickup location only to find locked doors and "no more tickets" signs. After a couple of phone calls it was determined that as of 8PM Monday evening, our reserved tickets had been given to others who wanted to attend the event. We had missed a deadline. After a very brief struggle with self pity, we decided that, with the next several hours already dedicated to President Bush, we would make our way to the event in Hope that we would be let into the show despite our flubbed preparations.

Arrival and First Impressions:

With expedience we made our way to exit 96 behind a couple of W's fans, and in short order found ourselves in a massive glut of travelers with like intentions. The parking area was a large field, which seemed to have been plowed (perhaps the year before) hence it's rugged terrain. While walking toward the entrance to the show, we noticed that a car containing some older people had become lodged in one such rut. David (my companion for this day and all around awesome guy) and I helped push the car past this obstacle and were praised by passers by, "Helping other people! Right on!". Why did I mention this? Not for self aggrandizement. What I did is what each one of us should and hopefully would do. I mentioned it because a group of young "W sportin'" men recognized the fruition of our good citizenship with boisterous approval. It was a great start to a great day!

As Luck Would Have it:

We asked the woman at the gate if we could acquire a ticket to see the President and she directed us to a group of people directly behind her inside the show grounds. We explained our circumstances and repeated to them our request. After filling out a sheet, we had our tickets! I wish I could say this was karma, but such things can not be known and humility is required. In some alternate universe we may have ignored the folks with the stuck car only to find that a few hundred Bush enthusiasts had just cleaned house at the ticket stand.

The Weather:

Gorgeous! A bit warm in among all those people. Very little in the way of complaints....even from yours truly, a rarity. That didn't stop some vendors from distributing fee Coca-Cola and handfuls of ice cubes.

The Show:

The proceedings began with an invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance. It felt good to see so many people participate in both, first reverently then with pride. I have never attended an event of this type. I did attend a wedding also visited by Iowa's previous Governor, (I miss you Terry!!!!) Terry Branstad who happened to be one of our first speakers. Awesome surprise! I would like to take a moment to apologize to those speakers left unmentioned, as this is merely an after thought to my day, my memory fails them. They deserved the applause visited upon them at the conclusion of each of their contributions....that and more. Next up was Senator McCain. I just read his convention speech the night before. He was still on message. He gave props to Rudy attaining the crowds approval, equal to his own. David and I were about 50 feet from the stage. I've been told that I'm loud. :) I tapped that for them all, and those in attendance made big noise for Bush.

Reaction To The Slapping Of The Flipper:

In our discussions of the day, David and I agreed that the crowds reaction to quoting Flipper was hardly hate filled. There were a few boos. Oh, but how we laughed. For what more can one do with the utterances of a buffoon. John Kerry's arrogant, ignorant, and selfish behavior both PAST and PRESENT have earned him our ridicule and (even in much smaller allowances owing to the arrogance previously mentioned) our pity.


I made it home in time for an important family event....but just barely. I am very very very very very very very glad that I did. That set the tone for the rest of my evening. Now home, the TV is set to C-SPAN (Thank you, Drumwaster). I should be recording this in MPEG-2, but I wanted to write this...I hope they replay it.....again. President Bush has a nice family. Arnold's speech!!! Rawk! The Harlem Chior! I loved it! Then I rejoined you on The 4. And I read about the violence and hatred born of leftist ignorance and visited upon the delegates to the 2004 Republican National Convention by the same sick leftist idiots. The contrast could not be more obvious, or more troubling, or sad, or pathetic, or so very telling! Those are the people who want to elect John Kerry.

I can not over state the value of the internet, friends. Major Media Leftist goon squad got ya down? Tell friends where to turn! Call them...and your neighbors! Tell them that because of the leadership of George Bush as much if not more than the state of the lying, violent, hate filled, ignorant left.....we have a long way to fall. You have a positive message. Spread it! Get together with others.

If I have any RNC media types reading this.....WE WANT CONVENTION DVDS! :)

David got the best pictures of those who spoke, I basically have these 2. We weren't close enough to the stage for a 2 mega pixel.

The first is our original view of the stage

I'm sure that many of you have heard of the book "The New Soldier", right? It's the book written by John Fonda Kerry and his pet group of liars, Viet Nam Veterans Against the War.

You do know that it's out of print. But do you know that John Fonda Kerry has not allowed any more copies to be printed? Yessir, Kerry doesn't want anyone else to read what he wrote back then. The lies, the slander, the insults, and the fact that he hasn't apologised for one bit of it.

Too bad for him the entire kit and kaboodle is available online in PDF form.

Too bad for him.

Looks like Turaysuh got sent to the back of the bus like Cyndi McKinney.

McKinney reportedly said Al Gore had a Negro Problem.

Looks like someone told John Kerry that he had a Witch problem.

Ah well.

It's the right of every man to tell his old lady to shut the hell up.


More Proof that Gun Control is a Failure

Via Ravenwood

The D.C. National Guard is stationing high-powered lights in the Dupont Circle area this week to brighten dark streets that might have contributed to a rash of robberies and the slaying of a popular waiter at a neighborhood restaurant, officials said yesterday.

Violent crime in D.C. is so bad that they have to call out the National Freaking Guard!

Some of the floodlights -- part of a D.C. National Guard anti-crime program -- are scheduled to be in the Dupont area until Saturday, according to Staff Sgt. Lorenzo Parnell of the D.C. Air National Guard.

For years, the National Guard has deployed the lights throughout the city, mostly in areas known for heavy drug dealing.

(sarcasm)Yeah, because those lights worked soooooooooo well before! We'll just keep trying the same thing until we get better results!(/sarcasm)

How much more evidence do you need? Gun Control DOES NOT WORK! Look at the areas with the strictest gun control, and you will find high violent crime rates without fail! Gun control only turns citizens into victims, while doing NOTHING to prevent criminals from getting guns!

It. Is. That. Simple.

More Proof that The Left is Unhinged

From Right Thinking Girl

Protesters have decided to exercise their "free speech" rights by filling bags and balloons with urine and lobbing them at policemen. This disgusting practice is going on westbound on 35th and Broadway. Stay clear.

Isn't that nice? I remember when conservatives held a rally or protest and we'd fill ballons with our urine and lob them at... oh, wait, THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN!

If you go to a liberal protest, you WILL see cops in riot gear. You WILL see vandalism and violence. You WILL see things being broken, and if there are any conservative counter-protesters you WILL see the counter-protesters being harassed and assaulted.

If you go to a Conservative protest, you will see cops in regular duty gear, looking bored because Conservatives as a rule DON'T BREAK THE LAW OR GO ON RIOTS! You won't see conservatives burning public property or smashing a shop window.

Disgusting. Just flat out disgusting. Oh, and another little tidbit from RTG:

-A group of protesters set on fire a large “Dragon Float” while they marched. When the fire was extinguished, it was discovered that there were bags of golf balls secreted inside the dragon. Purpose of the golf balls is unknown. For safety reasons, it should be assumed that they were to be used against members of the force for unlawful purposes.

Gee, just why would a group of violent leftist idiots want large bags of golfballs for? Hmmmmmmm.........

The Left: Purile Feces-Flinging Monkeys, but without all the hair. Uh... I'm not too sure about the hair part.

The Lying Left and their Media Whores

Castle Argghhh! has a video of former Texas Lt. Gov. Barnes lying his ass off for John Fonda Kerry. This is the same incident that TVE brought to our attention.

Why do I bring this up? Because John of Argghhh! points out that the mass media isn't acknowledging the fact that Barnes lied. They just chopped off the quote that proves he's lying and kept running the very same story!

Do you wonder why I call the media "The Democrat's Whores"? You shouldn't. For too long the mass media has gotten it's information by sucking on the shriveled siphillitic phalluses of the Left, and it's gotten ever so obvious in the past few months. This piece by Nick Shultz is yet ANOTHER highlight into how worthless and biased the mainstream press is.

Harper's magazine editor Lewis Lapham is being appropriately mocked for a major pre-GOP-convention boner. In the September issue of his magazine, which has been on newsstands for over a week, Lapham writes about the "Republican propaganda mill" and the GOP convention:

"The speeches in Madison Square Garden affirmed the great truths now routinely preached from the pulpits of Fox News and the Wall Street Journal -- government the problem, not the solution; the social contract a dead letter; the free market the answer to every maiden's prayer -- and while listening to the hollow rattle of the rhetorical brass and tin, I remembered the question that [Richard] Hofstadter didn't stay to answer. How did a set of ideas both archaic and bizarre make its way into the center ring of the American political circus?"

That's right, Lapham wrote about the GOP convention speeches before anyone even stepped to the podium. Lapham has apologized for what he's calling a "rhetorical invention," use of "poetic license," and a "mistake."

That's right folks, he wrote a leftist diatribe about the speeches at the Republican convention BEFORE THE CONVENTION EVEN OCCURRED! So what if Lapham doesn't know what the speeches are, he'll go ahead and smear them anyways! Those pesky facts never stopped a Liberal before, and Lapham will be damned if he'll let the truth get in his way!

But the only "mistake" Lapham made is in revealing for all to see what has long been known by anyone who pays attention to the news: the major media routinely bring to their coverage of significant political events a predetermined storyline -- you might want to call it a "Lapham". Facts that undermine the storyline are ignored or explained away as aberrations to The Truth. For the editor of Harper's and other establishment press figures, it really makes no difference to them what will be said at Madison Square Garden because the Laphams are already set, loaded in the scribblers' word processors and television anchor tele-prompters and ready to go.

Oh, THAT Liberal Media is dedicated to exposing the leftist bias in the national media, and they can't even keep up with everything! The press is so wound up trying to get Kerry elected that they've abandoned all pretense of objectivity, while attempting to claim that they are the very heart and soul of objective reporting. If it weren't so disgustingly pathetic it would be funny.

But just because the enemy is in plain view doesn't make them any less dangerous.

I know that people are probably tired of hearing about the media bias over and over, but it's something that needs to be exposed at every turn. The Democrat's Whores can't be left unsupervised for one second. Every Leftist cant, every falsehood, every instance of withholding truth in favor of biased Leftist muck needs to be held up and shoved in people's faces. Nobody ever changed the world by ignoring it's problems. We need to keep hammering away at the ivory towers until they come crumbling down. Don't allow the Left's lies to go unchallenged.

Realize just one important fact: You don't need 99% of the national mass media. THEY need YOU. Starve them off and find alternate sources of information, and the Democrat's Whores will have to either change, or die.

I prefer they die. But that's just me.

Pulled Pork and Coke on the Flat Screen Monitor

Fricking Lileks on the Convention:

Watching Rudi G throw down for the Dub. Opening line says it all: "Welcome to the Capitol of the World." Mwah hah hah! Quel cowboi, non? Everyone knows the capitol of the world is Brussels.

"Quel cowboi"


And that ain't all.

But what Giuliani did was completely typical: aggressive graciousness. It’s why people who disagree with many of his positions admire him greatly, and why he spoke Monday night. And dang: he was good. He was hard: first time I’ve heard someone get up and slam Arafat by name in such a context. A sharp elbow at Germany. A Kerry section played mostly for laughs. An amazing last 10 minutes - dodged nothing. It was like watching a blacksmith at work while he whistled opera.


Good work found here.

And Lastly...

...AlphaPatriot sure has a nice looking site here. Real neat and clean.

UPDATE: I made a mistake in my last post and didn't close centering of text. How do you like it? Too hard to read?



...violence from the Left.

UPDATE: And there's more:

march from the United Nations to Madison Square Garden ended in violence Monday after a protester attacked a plainclothes detective on a scooter, knocking him unconscious. Hundreds of police in riot gear swarmed the area, pushing protesters away from the Garden and into nearby side streets.
"Punch a Cop for Peace", I guess.


The Left Gets Angry, and Violent, in New York

Outside a hotel in Times Square, delegates to the Republican National Convention were swarmed by protesters dressed in black and swearing at them. Blocks away, delegates engaged in shoving matches with protesters seeking to spoil their night at the theater. And outside "The Lion King" on 42nd Street, a delegate was punched by a protester who ran by.

Although the organized protests yesterday and Sunday have been largely peaceful, there has been a starkly different tone to smaller incidents in Midtown and elsewhere: angry encounters and planned harassment of convention delegates as they go out on the town.

What tolerance.

They're going NUTS...

...over at Democratic Underpants!

Made A Few Calls

We were verifying registration tonight. I've got follow ups with serveral people later next month. Tomorrow I'm off to the Farm Progress Show. I'm positively hyped. I wonder if I'll get a good seat.

Anyone know where one can see uninterupted coverage of the 2004 Republican National Convention?

Jet Lagged

I got back into Seattle yesterday, suffering from jet lag and wishing I lived somewhere else. Ah well, soon.

I need to remember that going to a family member's wedding isn't really a vacation, even if you want it to be. It was fun? Yes. Worth it? Without a doubt. I would have gone to my brother's wedding even if I had to walk across the country to do it. But it wasn't a vacation.

The location was awsome. Our family had rented out a house on the waterfront in Wareham, MA. I woke up to the sound of boat horns and black cormorants splashing in Buzzards Bay. The house itself was built in 1875, with several additions added throughout the years. It was owned by a former antiques dealer, so the entire house was filled with tons of old relics and oddities. I loved the place. It just had history filling it, from the 18th century kitchen utinsils hanging on the kitchen wall to the Civil War flintlock in the billiards room. And it was the perfect place for a wedding. The ceremony was held outside, in front of the water. Short, sweet, simple and to the point.

The one downside: Mosquitos. Everybody was just eaten alive when we were on the back lawn, and the wind kept blowing out the citronella candles that we were trying to use. But it was still worth it.

And the FOOD! Oh my goodness, the tons and tons of food.... Let me just say that neither side of my family skimps when it comes to our victuals, or our booze. I think I gained twenty pounds; Pants that fit me just fine when I left last week are now straining at the seams when I put them on. Lobster, beef tenderloin, veggies of all types and styles, chicken, raw oysters, steamed mussels, clams, clam chowder, four different types of cheese just at the rehersal dinner alone, fresh corn on the cob, and on and on and on...... You never go hungry at one of my family's gatherings. And the bar was pretty much open 24/7. I killed a bottle of Jameson's Whiskey just by myself, and that doesn't bring into account the Bombay Sapphire that I interspersed into my drinking routine, nor the beer that people insisted I try. My flask is filled with Maker's Mark right now, brought home with me on the plane.

I had brought a bundle of good cigars with me, and my brother had picked up a box of good stogies as well. Other people brought more cigars, and we had them all in a big humidor in the billiards room. People could just grab a stick and wander down to the dock, standing over the water and looking out at Cape Cod while they smoked, enjoying the sound of water hitting wood and boats motoring out into the open seas.

I managed to get a hold of Bruce from mAss Backwards, but unfortunately I wasn't able to make time for a range session or a beer with him. The one day I had free was suddenly tied up with getting items needed for the wedding, and then the bachelor party that night. Bruce, if I had found the time I would have loved to go shooting with ya. I'll be back there next year at the very least, so there's still a chance we can get together.

All in all it was a damn good wedding, and I had a good time. I avoided the news while I was there, so I have a week's worth of catching up to do. I'll do my reading and then get back to politics as usual. From what I'm reading, John Fonda Kerry has been cut off at the knees as of late. Heh. It couldn't happen to a more deserving liar. And now his lackeys and hanger-ons are being exposed as the worthless truth-challenged idiots that they are, which is causing me no end of laughter.

I can't wait till November 2nd.

Davey's back!

Former Texas Lt. Governor Ben Barnes, George W. Bush, and the Texas Air Nationa Guard

Again from this post by kevinp at Blogs For Bush:

Have you ever heard a donkey claim that Bush got his position as an F102 pilot in the Texas Air National Guard by pulling strings? Check this:

However, the Dallas Morning News, which also looked into Bush's military record, reported that while Bush's unit in Texas had a waiting list for many spots, he was accepted because he was one of a handful of applicants willing and qualified to spend more than a year in active training flying F-102 jets.

Enter Ben Barnes, former Lt. Governor of Texas ELECTED 1969, Democrat, AND LIAR:

"I got a young man named George W. Bush into the National Guard when I was lieutenant governor of Texas" - former Democrat TX Lt. Gov. Ben. Barnes

George W. Bush enlisted in the Texas Air National Guard on May 27, 1968.

Bush joined before Barnes was elected. Pack of filthy liars.

Who was in Cambodia on Christmas Eve of 1968? SEARED!!

Flipper Or Just A Blatant Liar?

I'm going to link to a post by kevinp at Blogs For Bush in two different posts here at The 4. It covers two different points, and neither one can be over stated. First up, we have John Flipper Kerry blustering about his Anti-Castro....ness. Wouldn't ya know it! He's still voting for something before the final vote which he, of course, votes against.

"I'm pretty tough on Castro, because I think he's running one of the last vestiges of a Stalinist secret police government in the world," Kerry told WPLG-ABC 10 reporter Michael Putney in an interview to be aired at 11:30 this morning.

Then, reaching back eight years to one of the more significant efforts to toughen sanctions on the communist island, Kerry volunteered: "And I voted for the Helms-Burton legislation to be tough on companies that deal with him."

It seemed the correct answer in a year in which Democratic strategists think they can make a play for at least a portion of the important Cuban-American vote -- as they did in 1996 when more than three in 10 backed President Clinton's reelection after he signed the sanctions measure written by Sen. Jesse Helms and Rep. Dan Burton.
There is only one problem: Kerry voted against it.

Now, does Kerry care that he's a pathetic liar? Hell no! He's lied this lie before!

Referring to the Helms Burton legislation in an excerpt from a Slate article quoted at Blogs For Bush:

Kerry aides told Wallsten that Kerry voted against the final bill because he disagreed with some technicalities added at the last minute, but that he voted for an earlier version of the bill. But every piece of legislation that comes before the Senate is subjected to a succession of votes, many of them tactical in nature. The only vote that counts is final passage. If it were otherwise, any legislator could claim to have voted for or against almost any bill, depending on the audience, and there would be no accountability at all.

His decision to highlight votes on procedural motions before the vote for final passage of a bill followed by this decision to highlight those procedural votes rather than the up or down vote is utter premeditated duplicitous political slight of hand. Looking at how he votes on final passage tells us, as opposed to how he votes procedural, EXACTLY what John Flipper Kerry finds most important! He'll send our troops to war, but he won't give them what they need to do the job. He'll recognize that Castro is a Stalinist thug hunk of crap, but he won't stick it to the bastard.

These aren't even isolated events. Look at his response to being confronted with the lies he's told about his past!

Supporting President Bush

Several days ago, I helped place phone calls to voters in my county in support of President Bush. Tomorrow night, I will do the exact same thing. This Tuesday I am planning to see President Bush at the Farm Progress Show. I stongly encourage all of you to contact your local RNC and ask what you can do to show your support for President Bush. Yard Signs, , Window Signs, Bumper Stickers, Volunteering Time, and Join Others in Greeting the President at his campaign stops. We've a long distance to fall in regards to the quality of our representation in the Federal Executive. Every little bit of effort counts!
