Is Abu Mazen Arafat's Ghost?

UH.... I think Arafat's evil spirit has found a body to inhabit to continue his lies and dirty tricks.
An excerpt from an article today that seems to confirm my suspicions. Read on.
Israel Closes Gaza Strip Crossings After Terror Attack
By Julie
Jerusalem Bureau Chief
January 14, 2005
Jerusalem ( - Israel sealed off all crossings from Israel to Palestinian areas of the Gaza Strip on Friday following a bombing and shooting attack at the Karni crossing overnight that left six Israelis dead and five more wounded. The attack was the latest and worst in a series of assaults in the Gaza Strip since Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) was elected to lead the PA on Sunday on a platform that called for an end to violence by Palestinian groups. Hamas and the Al-Aksa Martyrs' Brigades -- part of Abbas' own Fatah faction -- claimed joint responsibility for the attack in a statement, saying it was "a continuation of resistance" that further proved "the enemy will leave the Gaza Strip under fire from the strikes of the Palestinian resistance."

And Another Thing About Regressives

I was just ruminating through the latest updated blogs and I came across an example of why the "progressive" label doesn't make sense. The blog titled Hollywood Progressive Institute is a perfect example of why I believe they need to change the title to the "Hollywood Regressive Institute." I also noticed that you cannot comment on the blogs or email anyone unless you're a member of the group. Did they get this tactic from the NY Times? I guess the Hollywood Regressives are too emotionally fragile from the 2000 and now the 2004 Presidential Elections to engage in any meaningful dialog with others who might not ascribe to their views. Poor regressive babies!

The Left Desperately Wants Insecurity Instead Of Social Security

Another excerpt taken from a great article from NRO's Financial Contributing Editor, Donald Luskin. Read on.

The Innumeracy of It All! - Behold the mathematical exaggerations of the Left on Social Security.

In the debate over Social Security reform, the dollar figures involved can be dauntingly large and dizzyingly complex. That opens up a lot of opportunity for demagogic mischief, and the leftist opponents of reform are taking full advantage.

In fact, there seems to be no end to the Left's demagogic innumeracy on Social Security. In an op-ed in the New York Times last week, Barry Schwartz, a professor of psychology at Swarthmore, wrote that the administrative costs of keeping track of these private accounts, according to President Bush's Commission to Strengthen Social Security, will be 10 to 30 times the cost of administering the current system. But the President's Commission's report said that the administrative costs would be about the same as those of the current system: three-tenths of 1 percent per year. That's 30 basis points, not 30 times.
Why the Times would hold out a professor of psychology as an expert on such matters is a mystery. And so far the Times has not run a correction ("public editor" Dan Okrent accused me of being "infantile" when
I asked for one). Of course, the Left has already repeated the Times's uncorrected statement. Three days later it appeared almost word for word (to put it delicately) in a Molly Ivins syndicated column. No correction there, either.
Ivins is on a roll. In
another column this week, she wrote that "The Social Security trustees, paid to be professional gloom-mongers on this subject, say [the system is] good until 2042 ... not before Social Security goes broke, but before Social Security has to dip into its trust fund." Dead wrong. What the trustees really say is that Social Security will start dipping into its trust fund in 2018. The year 2042 is when they say the trust fund will be entirely and utterly exhausted after 24 years of dipping. Correction? Surely you jest.

It's the definitive answer to the regressive thought pattern on Social Securty and President Bush's reform intentions.

NRO's Victor David Hanson Gets It Big Time.

This is an excerpt of Victor David Hanson's remarkable "Triangulating the War - Yesterday's genius, today's fool, tomorrow's what?" article appearing today in NRO Online:

Reading the pages of foreign-policy journals, between the long tracts on Bush's "failures" and neoconservative "arrogance," one encounters mostly predictions of defeat and calls for phased withdrawal — always with resounding criticism of the American "botched" occupation.

Platitudes follow: "We can't just leave now," followed by no real advice on how a fascist society can be jumpstarted into a modern liberal republic. After all, there is no government handbook entitled, "Operation 1A: How to remove a Middle East fascist regime in three weeks, reconstruct the countryside, and hold the first elections in the nation's history — all within two years." Almost all who supported the war now are bailing on the pretext that their version of the reconstruction was not followed: While a three-week war was their idea, a 20-month messy reconstruction was surely someone else's. Yesterday genius is today's fool — and who knows next month if the elections work? Witness Afghanistan where all those who recently said the victory was "lost" to warlords are now suddenly quiet.

Mr. Hanson's article is spot on. He reviews the situation and the mentality that got us into this fix. He also makes the reader aware of the disturbing lack of honor and truthfulness among the many foreign and domestic critics of the American led War On Terrorists in Iraq.

It's definitely a no spin, informative read.

Which is it? Progressive or Regressive?

I am having a little trouble with the latest lefty Liberal label that these guys have invented for themselves. Progressives. I don't think that label is correct at this juncture. I believe the label of Regressives applies and is a clear indication of their direction politically. They are regressing to the Political Hippy era of the 1960's and that is just fine with me as it will alienate all those who have truly Moved On. So now that's my label for all those lefties that are stuck in the timewarp of 60's mentality. Of course, realizing the left's zeal to misinform the public, maybe it DOES fit as Regressives are always the exact opposite of who they claim to be at any given opportunity.

"Support Our Troops" What's That Mean?

Do you own a Support Our Troops car bumper magnet? Is it on your car where everyone can see it? Or did you go Pollo and decide not to display the magnet?
If you didn't go Pollo and it is on your car then.............
What does it mean to you? Why did you put it on your car in the first place? Do you really SUPPORT our troops as advertised? Do you contribute to the USO? Do you contribute to Project Uplink? Do you send in your old cell phones to be recycled into funds that buy care packages for our troops overseas? Do you write letters of support and gratitude to our troops? Do you read the stories about our troops heroic actions and tell your friends about them? Just what do you do to really SUPPORT our troops?
Oh, and if your bumper magnet says Bring Our Troops Home then........
You don't really SUPPORT our troops you just want to tell them what to do as any Liberal would. They're big boys and girls now and I trust they will know when it is time to go home.

Clint to Moore "If you ever show up at my door with a camera - I'll kill you"

I guess Clint doesn't like Lefty spin either. An excerpt from an article on the net:

Clint Eastwood squinted like Dirty Harry Tuesday night as he took aim at Michael Moore.
"Michael Moore and I actually have a lot in common - we both appreciate living in a country where there's free expression," Eastwood told the star-dotted crowd attending the National Board of Review awards dinner at Tavern on the Green, where Eastwood picked up a Special Filmmaking Achievement prize for "Million Dollar Baby."
Then, the Republican-leaning actor/director advised the lefty filmmaker: "But, Michael, if you ever show up at my front door with a camera - I'll kill you."
The audience erupted in laughter, and Eastwood grinned dangerously.
"I mean it," he added, provoking more guffaws.
Sitting well out of range at a table in back, Moore - who received a special "Freedom of Expression" award for his anti-Bush polemic "Fahrenheit 9/11" - chuckled.

Laugh on fatboy. Do you feel lucky punk? Please go ahead and make my day.

Saddam Must Have Been A Great Guy

This leadin quote to a MyWay story on the net is very humorous and telling concerning the Abu Ghraib trials and the political dog and pony show they represent. Read on.

"I couldn't believe in the beginning that this could happen, but I wished I could kill myself because no one was there to stop it," Hussein Mutar, who was sent to Abu Ghraib accused of car theft, said in videotaped testimony.
"They were torturing us as though it was theater for them," he said, as the prosecution wound up its case against Graner on assault, dereliction of duty and other charges that could bring him up to 17 1/2 years in prison.
An obviously ill-at ease Mutar added: "I was extremely emotional because (even) Saddam didn't do this to us."

Ah.... So you're saying that because Saddam merely tormented, physically brutalized, maimed, killed tens of thousands of political prisoners and their whole families, and placed those who disagreed into plastic shredders, he was a great guy because he didn't force you to masturbate?????

Can you say idiotically revisionist? Give me a break! A common criminal (by his own admission) is given this kind of credibility? Of course this is fodder for a whole segment of the world that equates the minor harassment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib by U.S. Reservists with "torture". I think the left needs to experience real torture at the hands of the Islamofascists to tell the difference. I am sure there are Al Qaeda Terrorists and Saddam regime holdouts that are eager to teach them the difference without appointment.

Paltry Is As Paltry Does

Do you ever yearn for more of the story? I find myself wanting more than the "news lite" presented by most media organizations. I become highly suspicious of those who don't report on the whole story objectively. I have a very low opinion of media types that call themselves journalists and yet claim they were mislead by their staff or producers or directors or whatever when caught reporting a bogus story. Especially when the person has a huge number of years of experience at practicing their craft. The internet is a marvelous tool for getting at the truth if you know how to use the medium. It is my speciality as I have over 14 years of skills associated with doing just that. I hope through this blog to bring out the truth for all to see and discuss. A closed mind is a terrible waste of gray matter.

Not A Happy Camper

Rather biased Danno is not the happy go lucky fellow he once was. Getting caught by lowly bloggers in an obviously liberal biased attempt to defraud the public is not exactly a TV News journalist's finest hour. Now that the fab four have left the building, Danno is out on a limb with the saw on the wrong side. Can you say Jason Blair, Danno? Don't worry, be happy, Danno. I am sure there is a job waiting for you at the NY Times. At the Gray Lady, truth, justice and credibility come second to supporting Liberal causes and harming Conservatives. You'll fit in nicely.
So it goes.

The Irony and The Ecstasy

The Abu Ghraib trials are under way. No, not the Saddam ones. The U.S. Military ones. Ah, the irony! One of the most brutally vicious killers of his own people gets less press on the horrible crimes he committed against his people at Abu Ghraib (like putting them feet first into a plastic shredder) than the U.S. military prision guards that made cheerleader style pyramids of Iraqi insurgent prisioners and forced them to wear panties on their heads. Of course the "crimes" committed by the U.S. Prision Guards at Abu Ghraib are more talked about in the Liberal Media than anything concerning Iraqi terrorism and Saddam's crimes against humanity. But the firing of the 4 CBS losers today is an estatic event in my mind and I hope it gets the proper half life to live on for weeks in the media. Rather is AWOL today from his CBS anchor job. This is also cause for a good laugh as ol' Danno is on his way out. I predict Danno will retire later this year from all CBS programming. Ain't life wonderful sometimes?

I Say Hitem' Where It Hurts Most.

If you have ever watched professional boxing even for just an instant, you will not fail to notice that a good boxer always works on his opponent's weakest areas. Well, it's time to employ that strategy in fighting terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere. I rather like the idea of hit squads that would be missioned to take out the terrorist leadership anywhere they are found to be hiding. Even if it means taking them out in France, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon or Iran. The only good Islamofascist terrorist is a really publicly DEAD Islamofascist terrorist.
The U.S. Military command is now seriously considering this ploy and I say hurry the F### Up! Time is awasting and there are good people dying at the hands of this scourge. By the way, most honest Iraqis including the interim government are supporting this tactic. Loyal Iraqi Peshmurga and Shia fighters would be trained and missioned for this purpose within Iraq and the U.S. Special Forces would handle operations out of country. I know the weak kneed Liberals will have a hissy fit, but really who cares? We have a country and way of life to defend and we must battle dark forces that do not honor anything except the death in the most horrible way possible of all who would disagree, Iraqi, American or anyone else that supports a free, democratic Iraq.
Let's cut the head off of the snake of terrorism in Iraq so that the body will wither and die.
