Extended apologies

On behalf of all of the Fisters, I want to extend our sincere apologies for not posting anything for some time now. As many of you are aware the government, under extreme presssure from patriots like ourselves, did a document dump of papers recovered in Iraq after our sucessful invasion. Although none of us have any background in Arabic languages, that hasn't stopped us from working feverishly using dictionaries obtained from our local libraries to help out in the war on terror.

Outside of some unpleasantness involving fellow Fister Red Lantern and the authorities from Homeland Security who were interested in why he had failed to return a copy of The Arabic Language Today and paid him a little visit, all has gone well. Red Lantern is now back with his family as of last weekend, a little shaken, but more determined than ever to fight the Islamists who, because they attacked us on 9/11, are responsible for the several nights he spent in detention, not to mention the $3.40 he owes the library now for late fees.

Nobody ever said that the war on terror wouldn't be costly.

We promise to be back soon. Freedom is on the march!

RE: You Can Run, But You Can't Hide

While I agree with OinCa there is a bigger fish to fry regarding young Master Domenech. As he admits on his blog, he received preferential treatment when being accepted into William & Mary because....he is part Puerto Rican (although he doesn't indicate what part).
While it isn't mentioned in this report, the problems of racial population at the undergraduate level at W&M are particularly bad. Note W&M's depressingly low admission figures for non-Whites. The total Latino population at W&M is 156 (out of 5,585 total undergrads). That means I've had at least three classes with more students in them then the entirety of the Latino population on campus.

I don't mind that being Puerto Rican probably helped me get in to this school. I had the grades, SAT scores, and (especially) extracurriculars to ensure that I was admitted Early Decision. But I was also designated a William & Mary Scholar. This scholarship isn't publicized by W&M -- I'd never heard about it during the admissions process, and you have to search all over W&M's website for any mention of the program.

Now that the smoke is starting to clear it is fairly obvious that the kid was and is a serial plagarist, and didn't have the "chops" to make it with the "real" students, and it only goes to show you that admitting kids to college based on their ethnicity* will only bring a bad element onto our campuses. Had a white kid received Ben's spot, this may very well never have happened. However the school administration admitted this little quarter-Rican and now look at the scandal he is bringing down around their ears.

*I do want to state that I have no problem with admitting ethnic students to a college as long as they bring skills that some of the other students don't have, such as the ability to rebound. It's not about skin color...it is about ability.

You Can Run, But You Can't Hide

The liberal loudmouth who calls himself "Atrios" has been going crazy lately with jealousy over the Washington Post's hiring of Ben Domenech. Nevermind that Ben is the founder of a great blog and was a good enough writer to be hired by the Bush Administration, the left just hates him because he had the temerity to be conservative and successful. Washington is the only place in America where job qualifications are seen as a liability.

Of course it's easy for "Atrios" to talk trash about Domenech when he doesn't use his own name. Pity the poor liberal blogger who thinks he can spew garbage just because he's hiding behind a pseudonym. Too bad Atrios, or should I say Duncan Black, has never heard of Google. Sorry to have to smoke you out of the shadows my friend, but your readers deserve to know that the left's favorite blogger is a former economist. Not a journalist or a lawyer, but some number cruncher in Philly.

Even worse, after doing a lot of research and making a few phone calls, a little birdie told me that Mr. Black is an employee of - get ready for it - Media Matters for America. Suddenly it all makes sense that "Atrios" is on George Soros' payroll. What's wrong, Duncan? Were Michael Moore and Fidel Castro not hiring?

Liberal media beware

I wish I could only be a few years older so I could be like Ben Domenech. He's only 24 years old and has managed to score his own blog at the Washington Post- no small feat given their obvious liberal slant.

I'm really amazed how these guys manage to succeed in the MSM's liberal domination. Instapundit writes for MSNBC, Michelle Malkin gets printed everywhere, and Andrew Sullivan is writing for Time. That's quite an amazing feat for a field where it's impossible for conservatives to get published anywhere.

Meanwhile, Ben got exactly where he is through tireless work and with no help from anyone else. I bet his dad is very proud of him.

One bad dog shouldn't spoil the whole litter

As a Lifetime NRA member I have always advocated that it is not the gun that kills the innocent person, but the person who pulls the trigger. However reasonable people must agree that when someone is menaced or killed by a dog, the fault lies with the dog. That is why this story makes me so darn mad:

An Army dog handler convicted of using his snarling animal to torment Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib told a military jury Tuesday that he wished he had gotten his instructions in writing.

Sgt. Michael Smith, 25, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, took the stand late Tuesday at a hearing to determine his sentence.

Earlier Tuesday, a court-martial jury found Smith guilty of charges he used his military dog, Marco, to terrify prisoners -- allegedly for amusement and in competition with other soldiers.

Smith also was found guilty of allowing his dog to participate in videotaped lewd acts involving two other U.S. soldiers at the prison.

"It was foolish, stupid, and juvenile. There's nothing I can do to take it back. If I could, I would," Smith said about the sexual incident. He read from a prepared statement.

Now everyone knows that, no matter how well a dog is trained, as one of God's creatures, it retains free will. Just try and stop one from pissing on your prize jacarandas, let me tell you! That dog did not have to attack that IslamoJihadiist. It could have disobeyed its orders. But by attacking the prisoner, who no doubt had it coming (let's not forget that) it brought down its handler and brought shame upon the whole K-9 corps.

How will we ever get dogs to want to enter military service when curs like this make them all look like baby killers? Well, maybe not baby killers, but baby-chewers-on. I remember right after Viet Nam when dirty hippies would spit on specially trained tunnel dogs (used to root the gooks out of their underground networks) when they returned from their courageous overseas duty. Poor little spittle-flecked beasts. Their hearts were broken. And here is the commie MSM once again using one dog to paint the whole kennel as a bunch leg-humping mutts that ought to be put down.

I don't want to be a cut-n-runner, but the MSM is making it awful hard to let us finish the job now that they destroyed man's best friend.

Colors that sometimes run

For the last few years I've had a bumper sticker on my jeep with a picture of the flag and the slogan "These Colors Don't Run", but after seeing this I had to remove it :

I thought it was the flag of Texas, but it's not. That's the flag of France! I don't know how they got away with copying America and using red, white, and blue, but if they appear on the French flag, those colors do run.

After praying on it, I noticed a way out of this quandry. You see, the french colors aren't "red, white, & blue", they're "blue, white, and red". It's like in chemistry how there are some chemicals that you can mix together and they'll be good for you, but if you mix them a different way they're poison. The colors are the same way. When I see those bold colors waving gently in the wind, I still get a tear in my eye...as long as they're in the right order.

God bless the red, white, and blue.

The sexiest woman alive!

Now this is what I'm looking for in a woman: tall, young, blonde, conservative, and willing to use her body in any way that she believes Jesus is leading her, no matter the personal cost -

I don't really like NY to be honest with you...It is just a little too busy here for me, but I just feel in my spirit that the Lord has some great things planned for me here, so to get these gifts, I have to be where He wants me to be

Yes! I have been saying this for years. The selfish desire for "gifts" is precisely what makes one so selfless! And the ultralib leftwingers wonder how Christianity and capitalism can work together...
By the time this trip is over, I believe that I will have the ending to my book, His promises to me in modeling fullfilled

Yes! Yes! That's exactly why Jesus allowed nails to be pounded through his body and hung on a wooden cross in horrific agony for days on end -- so he could make promises to young models, that if they just stand New York for a while, then they can have fame, money, and fun while describing how much they personally understand Jesus!

I cannot wait for her book!

Chapters are filled with the different modeling experienes that Jesus has allowed me to experience.

Wow, that's a lot of experience! It is so cooooool the way Jesus personally supervises the professional lives of print models from southern Ohio.

Now if I only I wasn't so ashamed of having such unclean thoughts about a heart so pure.

On The Road

Much as I would like to stick around and gloat over the latest in US military power, I'm heading out to my annual Christian Retreat and Paintball Tournament for the weekend. See you guys later.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Still Right After All These Years

People who have been reading my stuff for a while now know that I'm not just some blind apologist for the current Administration. I'm pretty sure that I've had my quarrels with George Bush in the past, but I've never put those disagreements in print because I won't criticize my leader while we've got men in the field. I'm a patriot first. We'll have plenty of time to argue amongst ourselves once the war on terror is over.

As my pastor is fond of saying "question your questions and doubt your doubts", but the concept of impassioned restraint and putting your faith first is foreign to the "too clever by a half" squad on the left. The neo-stalinists at FAIR (False And Inaccurate Reporting) have cherry-picked some pre-war quotes to boost the egos of their traitorous brethren :
"Maybe disgraced commentators and politicians alike, like Daschle, Jimmy Carter, Dennis Kucinich, and all those others, will step forward tonight and show the content of their character by simply admitting what we know already: that their wartime predictions were arrogant, they were misguided and they were dead wrong. Maybe, just maybe, these self-anointed critics will learn from their mistakes. But I doubt it. After all, we don't call them 'elitists' for nothing."

(MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, 4/10/03)
I'm scratching my head about exactly what this quote is supposed to prove. These guys were saying that Saddam Hussein doesn't have weapons of mass destruction but he did. That's why we had to take him out. Sorry FAIR, but you're going to have to work harder than that to convince me that the world is better off with Saddam Hussein running the middle East.

Beyond that, let's assume for the sake of argument that some of the liberal talking points turned out to be right, that doesn't prove anything. You don't win points with me by accidentally being right if you make all your decisions based on how much you hate the PResident. Even a broken clock is right twice a day, but you know who's right the rest of the day? We are.

Wars civil and uncivil

What we're seeing in Iraq, however, is nothing more than a bunch of angry Islamists (is there any other kind?) that think blowing up children is an acceptable form of dissent. I dunno what it should be called, but in my book it's a very uncivil war.

I think this is a great point, O in C, and I've been thinking about this ever since P-Zero kicked off our new site by pointing out

how can there be a Civil War in Iraq when you do not have two sides wearing different uniforms (blue and grey, for instance)? Gettysburg is not just a big field, you know. Our brave troops fought and died there to preserve the Union. The Liberals dishonor their memory with their specious comparisons to a Civil War in Iraq, when there is not one at all, in Iraq.

It may be that a lot of liberals are confusing the American Civil War with the Vietnam War, because of the fact that in both cases the North side attacked the South and divided the country in two. That would explain why they keep wanting to call Iraq a "quaqmire." (In reality, of course, almost none of the land in Iraq is soggy. It's physically impossible!) But has it occured to anyone to tell the liberals that you don't only need different uniforms for a civil war, you need different national anthems and a whole different currency too? The South had them. The Confederate states even had a capital! So did South Vietnam! In fact, many South Vietnamese didn't even speak the same language as the North Vietnamese. Nothing like that is happening in Iraq today. And the sooner the MSM realizes these facts, the readier they'll be to begin broadcasting the good news from Iraq.

Damned If You Do

When are the Republicans going to realize that it's useless to try to please the Democrats? No matter what they do, the mommy party will throw a fit. Case in point, last year they were all up in arms about Talon News reporter Jeff Gannon having a clearance into the WH press room, which was really just an excuse to rake the guy across the coals for the sin of being gay and conservative, but now that the Bush Administration is actually doing something about it, they're still angry.
The Bush administration last year quietly rewrote the rules for allowing gays and lesbians to receive national-security clearances, drawing complaints from civil rights activists.

The Bush administration said security clearances cannot be denied "solely on the basis of the sexual orientation of the individual." But it removed language saying sexual orientation "may not be used as a basis for or a disqualifying factor in determining a person's eligibility for a security clearance."

The White House sought to play down the changes, approved by President Bush in December, as an effort to ensure the security clearance rules are consistent with a 1995 executive order about access to classified information.
Make up your minds liberals! Do you want gay people to have access to the White House or not??

Slate Plays Dumb

Why do they even pay John Dickerson to write junk like this?
The way some of the speakers talked about Washington, you'd never know Republicans were in charge. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who represents eastern Memphis, complained about the "40 years of Democratic Congress," and described Washington as a "monument that Democrats have built for themselves." Sen. George Allen complained about senators in their "cushy seats" and championed austere legislation that would "bring accountability to Washington." He called for a balanced budget amendment and legislation that would withhold senators' pay if they didn't complete the budget on time. Who are those nameless, faceless senators?
Is he really so stupid that he doesn't know the Senators that Allen is referring to? Has he never heard of Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, John Murtha, Harry Reed, Howard Dean, Paul Wellstone, John Kerry, John Edwards, Tom Daschle, and Al Gore?

An Act of God

Tiem for the liberal media to start issuing some corrections and apologize to the owners of the SAGO mine :
An explosion that killed 12 workers at the Sago Mine likely was caused by a massive lightning strike that ignited methane gas in a sealed-off area, the mine's owner said Tuesday.

The company's own investigation turned up three pieces of compelling evidence of a lightning strike, all from 6:26 a.m. on Jan. 2, said Ben Hatfield, chief executive officer of International Coal Group Inc.
See?? It doesn't matter whether or not the owners were fined for safety violations because this couldn't have been prevented. Just like Hurricane Katrina or 9/11, this was an act of God (or in the case of 9/11, terrorists). What are you going to do? Stop believing in God or stop trying to kill terrorists? Of course not. What we need to do is just put all of this behind us and move along with our lives. It's what God would want.

Stop Calling It That!

I've been saying for a while now that the tensions in Iraq aren't a civil war and it looks like my man Rummy agrees with me :
U.S. intelligence analysts are examining possible civil war scenarios and responses, Rumsfeld said.

Rumsfeld said today Pentagon analysts are trying to establish criterion for distinguishing between sectarian violence and a civil war and trying to answer questions such as ``what would it look like and what might be its progression?''

"It's a hard thing to do," he said. "Until I've had a chance to think more about it, I will say, I don't think it will look like the United States' Civil War."
Even if the situation in Iraq worsens, there are a lot of differences between that conflict and the civil war. In the war of Northern Aggression, the battlefields were filled with brother fighting brother. In the end, patriots on both sides put aside their differences in order to free the slaves. What we're seeing in Iraq, however, is nothing more than a bunch of angry Islamists (is there any other kind?) that think blowing up children is an acceptable form of dissent. I dunno what it should be called, but in my book it's a very uncivil war.

The Power of the Fist

MSNBC's Head Moonbat, Keith Olberman, had this to say on Sunday:

There are people I know in the hierarchy of NBC, the company, and GE, the company, who do not like to see the current presidential administration criticized at all.

You got that much right, Olberman! Five years ago, the hierarchies of NBC and GE would have towed the liberal company line. But thanks to Powerline and Instapundit, the Army of Davids have spoken!!! And the hierarchies of Goliathland have changed their minds!!!

Advantage, blogosphere.
