Who Is A Suicide Bomber?

And what is their motivation? It's not always what you think. Do you use a distraught girl who was injured in an accident and dumped by her boyfriend?

She says she didn't want to kill anyone...but she tried to pull the pin at the check point when stopped.

She'll still get the treatment she requires, but is she ever going to realize what she was going to do? Destroy a hospital that was going to help her and the people she lives with.

I Now Have Something To Look Forward To In The Elections

Cindy Sheehan has announced her bid to run against Pelosi in the upcoming elections.

Cindy Sheehan Targets Pelosi, Impeachment via NewsMax.

I can't wait to hear the idiotic respond to the insane. The level of discourse in these debates should cause peoples heads to explode. Pelosi thinks that she'll just be able to ignore Saint Cindy of the Ditch, but I don't think the LameStreamMedia will allow it. Pelosi is to secure in her seat, so the only thing worth covering will be to see how much Cindy can get under her skin.

Just For Glee

Hell, I'll steal his title too, and because that make me feel guilty, I'll give the Hat Tips above the fold.

From GUYK who got it though JACK.


A woman, married three times, walked into a bridal
shop one day and told the sales clerk that she was
looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding.

"Of course, madam," replied the sales clerk,
"exactly what type and color dress are you looking

The bride to be said: "A long frilly white dress
with a veil."

The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, "Please
don't take this the wrong way, but gowns of that
nature are considered more appropriate for brides
who are being married the first time - for those
who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean?

Perhaps ivory or sky blue?"

"Well," replied the customer, a little peeved at
the clerk's directness, "I can assure you that a
white gown would be quite appropriate.

Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I
remain as innocent as a first-time bride.

You see, my first husband was so excited about
our wedding, he died as we were checking into
our hotel. My second husband and I got into
such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to
our honeymoon, that we had that wedding annulled
immediately and never spoke to each other again."

"What about your third husband?" asked the sales

"That one was a Democrat," said the woman,
"and every night for four years, he just sat
on the edge of the bed and told me how good
it was going to be, but nothing ever happened!"

Why Can't We Know Out Who's Here?

I know he'll never run for President, but he always seems to get it right.

Why Can't They Make It Like They Used To?

I have worked for oil companies for the last 30+ years. I have a tendency to get a "bit" of dirt, grease, and other crap under my fingernails and around my cuticles. Trying to keep them clean is a major problem.

The sad looking thing in the picture above is a fingernail brush that I bought from the Fuller Brush Company 35 years ago. It still works, but I'd like to have another to keep at my jobsite. Even though Fuller is still in business, they don't make this anymore, and the ones they make are the cheapo crap that I can by at the grocery store...and they don't work.

I'm not sure what it is, but if I like a product, because it works, or lasts, they stop making it.

I cannot remember where I ran across theseaudio clips while bouncing around different site a few days ago, but it has stuck in my head since.

The man who pulled me to the dark side explains the inherent flaws in Socialized Medicine and what it leads to. I was particularly struck by the start of Part II when he explains that where you work will be dictated by the government. You've grown up in Boise, and want to work there, tough luck, Boise has enough doctors, you are needed in Minot N.D. (place a friend of mine described as summer lasting from June 30 to July 1..on a good year).

I'll let (pre)President Reagan explain:

What Do They Really Want?

If I hear this again, I'm going postal (remember that phrase?). Here, once again, in English, the terms for peace are laid out by the Islamofasicts.

I know hes a boring speaker, so I'll give you the "talking points".
Adam makes six demands on behalf of al Qaeda:

From The Jawa Report:

1) Pull all U.S. troops out of Muslim lands. But I thought pulling out of Iraq would make al Qaeda stop? Oh:

And let us be clear. A pull-out from Iraq alone in the absence of compliance with the remainder of our legitimate demands will get you nowhere and will not save you from our strikes.

SO stop wasting your time, and trying to save face with these futile, farsical maneuvers on Capitol Hill and start making some serious moves.

2) Stop all support of all Muslim regimes. Al Qaeda considers every Muslim country on earth--even Saudi Arabia--to be apostate.

3) End aid to Israel. They hate the J-O-Os.

4) Allow Muslims to establish sharia law. This means that we should not interfere when they start killing apostates and stoning adultresses.

5) Stop all broadcasts to the Middle East. Apparently, they don't like CBN as much as they despise Spice. Especially broadcasts which try to alterfaith, minds, morals, and valuesSuch liberty loving people!

6) Free all Muslims from our jails.

A final parting shot:

This is not a call for negotiations. We don’t negotiate with baby killers and war criminals like you.

Oh, the irony! Warning, graphic image below:


Al Qaeda family values in action.

I hadn't been by JibJab in a while, and now I'm a little upset. They do have some funny stuff over there. Here's one I missed, even though they sent me an E-mail to tell me about it. (it's the account I use to register for crap that I think will spam me and go to about one a month.)

Any way here's the "Star Spangled Banner" performed by some of our Presidents.

Cruising around and ended up at this site: "iPhone Review"

I share this guys hatred of cell phones. From the time I got my first pager, through work, I realized being able to be in touch all the time wasn't really a benefit. I could cut my cell phone plan down to about two hours a month and have more rollover minutes than I'll ever use.

Now with this do all "phone" how long until one or two functions go south rendering it useless? And you know the ones that crap out first are going to be the ones you use.

I followed the link back to his main page and watched some of his videos, one was so-so, but this one I really liked. I like the band "Fallout Boy", although I'll never be able to listen to this song again without hearing Shamus' lyrics. Kind of like the first time I noticed the "stronger than dirt" line at the end of The Doors, "Touch Me".

Here's Shamus' "Gun/Dad/Arse/Face"

Updated: I know nobody asked, but I'm going to add this commercial from the 70's so you young'un's understand why this has stuck with all these years. It was an inside joke when they did it, but has driven me crazy since I first thought I heard it, and has detracted from my love of what would be a great song since then.

Happy 4th of July

Y'all have a happy and safe 4th, and say a prayer for those in the Armed Forces serving around the world protecting "America, the Beautiful."

The MSM and the Truth

From TJ's Anti-Contrarian Blog

Two views of the same incident, one the reports by the MSM:
On 31 May 2007, SINAN SALAHEDDIN, an Associated Press Writer reported that a suicide bomber had killed 25 and wounded 50 near Fallujah.

One from a Marine that was there:
“[D]ue to aggressive patrolling by Iraqi forces [a] bomber who doubtless wanted to target the civilians at the headquarters itself in order to cause the most catastrophic effects, was forced to detonate his vest almost a half-mile away when he was halted by police. He succeeded in causing superficial wounds to one Iraqi civilian, as well as killing himself. No one else was injured, no other damage caused, and in the aftermath of the incident, the precinct signed up an additional 75 recruits for police service. This bomber failed - he failed to kill innocents and he failed to deter the progress of standing up Iraqi police.

Go read the whole letter from the Marine and you'll understand why people just don't believe what is being fed to us by the Media.

Some Depressing Links

I got home tonight and started my perusal of web sites for what was happening today, and it just seemed to get more depressing the more I read.

One of the first things I ran into was a post by Micheal Yon on a horrific find when he wen into a Iraqi village with an Iraqi army unit. It's not pretty what the al-queda "freedom fighters" left behind. I'll let Micheal explain: Bless the Beasts and Children.

I then got to read about an insider's view of the TSA and the reasons you get to stand in lines forever with your shoes off to get on a plane: Knee-Jerk From The DC Jerks Again.

There was some good news today, even if it was a half-assed attempt of doing the right thing: Bush commutes Libby sentence.

Half-assed in that Libby should have been pardoned for being convicted of a non-crime, but the fine still has to be paid (this will be covered by donations), and he will lose his law license due to the conviction.

Ball-less George is guessing that by commuting the sentence, he gets the right off his back, but by not pardoning Libby, he will still look like he isn't completely caving in.

Didn't work.

And for those of you who think this is a "travesty of justice", just keep in mind Sandy Pantsburglar and...

Clinton's commuted the sentences of

16 members of FALN, a violent Puerto Rican nationalist group that set off 120 bombs in the United States mostly in New York City and Chicago, convicted for conspiracies to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as for firearms and explosives violations, and:

Carlos A. Vignali had his sentence for cocaine trafficking commuted, after serving 6 of 15 years in federal prison.

Susan McDougal, who had already completed her sentence, was pardoned for her role in the Whitewater scandal; McDougal had served 18 months on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton's role.

Dan Rostenkowski, a former Democratic Congressman convicted in the Congressional Post Office Scandal.

Roger Clinton, the president's half-brother, on drug charges after having served the entire sentence more than a decade before. Roger Clinton would be charged with drunk driving and disorderly conduct in an unrelated incident within a year of the pardon.

And by all means lets remember this upstanding citizen: Marc Rich, a fugitive, was pardoned of tax evasion, after clemency pleas from Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak, among many other international luminaries. Denise Rich, Marc's former wife, was a close friend of the Clintons and had made substantial donations to both Clinton's library and Hillary's Senate campaign.-- One company from which Rich bought crude during this period was a front for extremist Russian and Ukrainian organizations. All were pro-Saddam; one was a staunch supporter of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il. Another company was tied to a major money launderer for Saddam.

To reach these conclusions, BusinessWeek traced crucial connections from a number of official inquiries and documents. Key among these documents: shipping tables from the Middle East Economic Survey (MEES), the preeminent authority on tanker activity in the Middle East. These detail the ports, tankers, destinations, and buyers of Iraqi crude. Other insights came from a 2004 CIA report on Iraq, data from Switzerland's Federal Commercial Registry Office, and the many inquiries launched into Oil-for-Food. The Justice Dept., six congressional committees, a U.N. commission, Morgenthau's office, and several countries, including Switzerland, are all investigating the program. Extensive interviews with dozens of oil traders, government investigators, and energy experts around the globe helped form a clearer picture of how the network operates.
