Good stuff

Captain Ed is on a roll, to the point where trying to pick out all the posts that need to be read would be futile. Just click and scroll.

So, about this letter

That Iranian leader Amahmentaljob sent to us Americans. Being a "Noble American", here's my response to it.

Dear President Amahmentaljob,

Thanks for the letter, but before we "dialogue", there are a few conditions you need to address.

Stop supporting terrorism.

Get your proxies out of Lebanon.

Stop calling for the destruction of Israel.

Stop building a nuclear weapon.

Once you've addressed those four concerns, then perhaps we can have a discussion that doesn't begin with me saying "So, how would you like your country to be radioactive for the next thousand years?" Until then, you can go piss up a rope.

Cordially yours,

Raging Dave

Andrea asks, Kim answers


I can get the attraction to Communism and its adherents — it was ostensibly all about the brotherhood of man, and raising the worker from oppression, and freedom from the shackles of conformity and poverty, and so on and so forth. In other words, it talked a great game about giving people more freedom, more progress into a better life in the here and now. Sure, it turned out to be a pack of lies, but they were such pretty lies.

But I don’t get for one minute what is the impetus behind the slavish adoration the liberal intelligentsia in the West has decided to give the Muslim terrorist groups.

Kim's answer:

So what does Blue America like about Islamic extremism? The fact that it’s not Western civilization. That it’s Islamic fascism opposing the Eeeeevil West is purely fortuitous. If our airliners were being hijacked and our buildings blown up by cannibalistic Sumatran separatists, you can be sure that the New York Times would soon be writing stories about the superiority of the Sumatran social system and diet to ours.

John Derbyshire’s delicious comment springs to mind: “Wherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face there will be a well-heeled Western liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100 percent literacy.”

The reason I call most Leftists anti-American is because they always seem to side with the enemies of America. When's the last time you saw people on the Left say "You know what? America is the best country in the world, despite our problems"?

Nothing comes to mind, does it? My point exactly. Instead, you have Cindy Sheehan hugging the anti-American communist Chavez, Jimmah Cah-duh fellating the anti-American dictator Castro, Code Pink doing the bidding of the anti-American communist Kim Jong Il, and hordes of Leftists calling America every hatefull thing in the book.

But don't question their patriotism! Yeah, right, sure.

UPDATE: Going through Andrea's blog, I found this absolute gem that I had to repost:

I’ve gotten kind of off the track here. That’s what these people do to me — they destroy my ability to concentrate. They do it with their piling up of the same old bricks of notions that we tear down — it’s as if every time you knocked down a wall of a derelict house someone came up behind you and started reassembling the rotten wood, the crumbling drywall, and the rusted rebar, meanwhile insisting that not only have you tried to destroy a perfectly good house, it is in its decayed, unlivable condition actually a better house than the one you were going to build with new mortar and fresh concrete — and furthermore, you never did knock down the house to begin with, there isn’t a house, you aren’t really there.

If that doesn't perfectly explain the Liberals, I don't know what does. That's brilliant.

It’s like dealing with a pack of five-year-olds who are so developmentally stunted that they will never be able to learn anything — every day it’s a repeat of the same old simple lessons: “wipe your bottom before you pull your underpants up, not after!”

Linky Love

Two articles that I thought worth reposting from Instapundit. First up, Thomas Sowell, on Who Really Cares.

Those on the left proclaimed their moral superiority in the 18th century and they continue to proclaim it in the 21st century. What is remarkable is how long it took for anyone to put that belief to the test -- and how completely it failed that test.

The two visions are different in another way. The vision of the left exalts the young especially as idealists while the more conservative vision warns against the narrowness and shallowness of the inexperienced. This study found young liberals to make the least charitable contributions of all, whether in money, time or blood. Idealism in words is not idealism in deeds.

It's an essay that shouldn't surprise anyone with half a brain, but it's well worth repeating, and has evidence to back it up.

Second, from a US Marine regarding Iraq: Go Native.

Iraq is too important to just leave in pieces for its neighbors to do what they will with it. The US political class is currently misreading the US election, thinking that it provides a mandate for withdrawal. Instead, it was a message of general discontent. It's time for dramatic changes. Why not go native?

The MSM lies, part 12,536,927

Don't trust the lying, gutless, anti-American traitors as far as you could throw them.

Yes, I question their patriotism. I question their sanity. They are rooting for America's enemies non-stop, and doing whatever they can to ensure that the terrorists win. They are anti-American pustules on this country's ass. They do nothing but lie and smear half-truths and outright falsehoods in order to prevent this country from winning a war.

They are traitors, and they should be treated as such.

By the way....

I'm back from the blogging hiatus, and pissed off to boot.

Just so y'all know.

Dear Dimocrats

Fuck you.

Fuck you, fuck the whores that call themselves your mothers, and fuck the fathers you never knew because they didn't pay the first time. Rangel, you fat sack of shit, I hope you choke on a chicken bone and die. Kerry, I hope you fall off your sailboard and drown.

For every smear, for every lie they spread, for every insult that comes out of their mouths whenever they're open, I hope the Dimocrats get a collective case of food poisoning and spend the last few hours of their miserable, parasitic existence hunched over their toilets in pain and misery right before they fucking croak. We don't need a new election, we need a national de-worming.

Just die, Dimocrats. Die so that you stop polluting the world with your filth, you cesspool dwelling, lying, corrupt, worthless shitweasels.
