Make love, not war!

I hate war. I don't think it's necessary for the United States to butt it's nose into everyone else's business. It seems like a country can't have a civil war without the US joining, getting a bunch of our citizens killed and then helping set up a new government just like ours. I think we have a decent government running here - but is there any reason we have to make every other country run the same way? No wonder the citizens of these other countries hate us! Every time I turn on the news I see new reports of young men who have died that day in Iraq and of families missing their relatives who are miles away fighting on lands they have no emotional ties to. I'm sick of it. 9/11 was an awful, horrible day. I saw all the events happen live on TV as many others did and I still get sick to my stomach thinking about it. But why do we have to waste so many other lives to get revenge? Look back at the past 100 years and the wars our country has been involved in. They weren't our battles to fight and yet we joined it and lost so many of our men. My grandfather can't watch a war movie to this day because of what he saw while in WWII. Why must we keep scaring generations of our citizens with this brutality of war? We have enough problems of our own here in our own cities, we don't need to go police the rest of the world. My final thought is: United States - please stop acting like a big brother to everyone else. We could use this money and man power to help so many poor people here.

Women make less money than men. Yea, they should.

Now you must think I am CRAZY! Here are the facts from a (Democratic Sponsored) study into women's earnings. The study shows that women earn 20% less than men in the same field of work. The reason based on the report - because women take substantially more time off of work for family needs. So isn't it fair, then, that if someone works less that they are paid less? Don't know, just asking.

An interesting finding of the study sponsored by Jon Dangle (D) - Michigan, is that woman with children make 2.5% less than women with children. That isn't the strange part. The strange part is that men with children actually make 2% more than men without children. The congressman is all stupified and confused and said that the GAO (General Accounting Office) will spend millions more of your tax dollars trying to figure out why men with kids make more money than men without.

Here Congressman, let me solve the problem for you. In fact, Ill solve all of them relating to this study. Companies want employees with stability. Stability is a key factor in hiring and promoting employees. This is why they run background checks, CREDIT checks, etc. Why do you think they do this? They demand commitment and stability. Women are less-stable employees because if a man and woman have a child, the woman is 10x more likely to quit to raise the child than the man - which is why women are less committed to the job and less stable, therefore less valuable and lower paid.

The result of the many women that have children and quit? The man is the only bread earner for his family and suddenly needs his job. A man who needs his job is more committed and more stable, and therefore more valuable to an employer than a man that doesn't - which is why men with kids earn more, and women earn less.

You're welcome.
Some people really are stupid...

Remember right before Bush was elected how the economy started taking a serious nose dive? Remember how every Democrat and liberal on earth blamed Bush for the bad economy despite proof after proof that it actually started towards the end of the Clinton presidency? Everyone immediately jumped all over Bush and he became "the President of the bad economy". Surveys less than one year after 9-11 showed their biggest beef with Bush was not national security, but rather the economy.

So now the economy is rebounding. Revised GDP shows 8.2% growth last quarter, highest in almost 20 years. Yes, that means the economy grew faster last quarter than it ever did during the big 90s boom...

But what do liberals and democrats think? Since Bush was to blame for the bad economy, is he to credit for the rebound? Well of course not! Liberal-leaning CNN's poll shows 55% don't think Bush was responsible for the rebound.

Of course he wasn't. Blame Bush for all the bad, take credit for all the good. That is the Democratic stance. Period.

Public schools REQUIRING Non-Conformist Behavior?!?!

Are you bloody kidding me? So a public school in Maryland that requires non-conformist behavior has suspended a girl that kissed another girl at lunch after yelling "End homophobia now". What hypocrits! First off, since when do schools require non-conformist behavior? Second of all, if you do, don't suspend the kids that actually do what you require! What hypocrits! Here is the text from the CNN story:

Haaser, a junior, said she chose to make the statement as part of an English class assignment, which required that she engage in a nonconformist act in the tradition of Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Wow, I am so proud of public schools! Can't pray at school, but just what does this Public school support. Don't take it from me...

River Hill administrators said they pride themselves on the school's respect for diversity. Pfeifer said the school has a Gay-Straight Alliance club and a diversity committee of students, teachers and parents. The school recently celebrated National Coming Out Day.

And you wonder why our public schools suck so bad? No wonder people send kids to private school! What is this world coming to? Truth is stranger than fiction. Read the CNN story here.

Thursday before "The Game"

Being an avid Buckeye fan, proud member of the Buckeye Nation, and astute alumni of The Ohio State University I feel compelled to state the following:

It's 9:51PM Thursday November 20, 2003.... and Michigan still SUCKS!!!


GO BUCKS!!



In Tress We Trust
Anti-Free Trade Protestors...

They are anti-capitalist, yet they live in America... hmmm... I still love how people that protest business activities somehow have nothing to do in the middle of the day...

When you can't win in debate, riot. Seems to be the case with the ultra-left wing as we see time after time.
if you care about facts...
Don't be fooled by the anti-war, anti-Bush protests in London. Turns out they were organized by the UK Communist party and some extreme left-wing Islamic groups based on research by the Heritage Foundation.

Here are the facts: Most Britains support Bush, Blair, and the war against Terror.
Unemployed fools...

So have you been watching the riots at the WTO trade talks in Miami? I mean, have you seen these hippies? Is it any coincidence that all of these rioters and protestors have nothing else to do in the middle of the day? I don't think so...

Get a job before you preach about Trade. Morons.

How to advertise without advertising...

Has anyone been watching the news this week? The only thing matching the air time of the Wacko-Jacko molestation indictment is this Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. Is this really news? I mean seriously, is it? Vicky's has to be just eating this up. Who needs to advertise when every news channel in the country uses your event to flash some skin up on their channel during every single news break. Even Fox News keeps running the teaser:

"Victorias Secret... Have They Gone Too Far?" Then they flash the video of all the beutiful girls in their underwear all the while asking "Is Victorias Secret going too far showing THIS on TV? Here watch us show it over and over and over and over and over and over and over and then tell us if they are going too far? Here lets show it again? Did you miss it. here it is again. And if you missed it this time, don't worry it will be on again at 6:00, 6:05, 6:10 and 6:15!! What are these people thinking showing this smut on tv? Here lets show it to you again, then You Decide..."

They get away with it in the interest of "news", but let’s face it - sex sells, this isn't news. This is just news agencies jumping on top of this opportunity. (No pun intended). And this is EVERY news channel. Why are you just pushing viewers to CBS? You are just insuring that no one is watching your channel while that thing is on. Dummies.

Required Reading...

Before you want to debate me on Gun Rights, at least get your facts straight. It seems your very own Democratic Presidental Candidates don't even know what the Assault Weapons Ban is, or even what it applies to. They only know they are for it. Just don't ask them why.

Read this.

John Muhammed - Guilty

The first person convicted under the only law in the country that allows for execution of someone who assisted in a murder and not the trigger-man, when the crime is meant to create terror in the public at large.

So the question is, should Muhammed get executed for this murder when he didn't pull the trigger?

Abso-freakin-lutely!

@#$% Immigrants!

So Illegal aliens are suing Wal Mart under the RICO racketeering Law. They are saying that Wal-Mart knew its floor cleaners were illegally hiring these illegal cursed Day Laborers (Illegal Immigrants that voluntarily work for a very low wage and their employers withhold no payroll taxes, no social security, no workman's comp, nothing. So the rest of us get to pay for them). Are you catching the common theme here? ILLEGAL!!! And let's not forget, this is NOT slave labor here. No once is forcing these illegals to take these jobs. In fact, they beg for them. They stand in parking lots for hours hoping someone will come pick them up and hire them illegally. They are just as anxious as can be to continue their illegal lifestyles. But now they want to sue Wal Mart for the money that a citizen would make. Can you say, "Want your cake and eat it to?" You want to make citizen money? Become a citizen!

Anyone that lives in a city of any considerable size knows what Day Laborers are. They are the thousands of Illegal Immigrants (probably 99% Mexican) that just loiter around parking lots and streets looking for some illegal work for the day from some greedy contractor. Their employers ought to be boycotted for hiring illegal immigrants. I don't give two craps what they pay these guys, they are supporting illegal activities and just propagating the horrid immigration problems we have with Mexico.

In order to file this suit, the plaintiffs have to admit they are illegal aliens and are here illegally and broke the law themselves. So here is my response, kick them the heck outta this country. They admitted they are breaking the law so get them out! Enough is enough!

The CEO of Wal-Mart doesn't know who its independent contractors hire, nor should he. Why don't you prosecute the people that DO know what they are doing - all of these Construction, Landscaping, and other manual-labor whore mongers that hire these illegal aliens illegally. And then deport the alients! I mean, it is not hard to find the guilty parties. If you live in a big city, have you ever seen a construction site or landscaping crew that isn't full of Mexicans? It is all you will see in Atlanta, I assure you. It is time to crack down on this ridiculous problem. Shut down these contractors and deport illegal immigrants. You want to stay? Learn English, become a citizen, get a real job, and pay for your own @#$% taxes and healthcare!

Enough is enough.

More proof democrats cannot debate on the facts...

Here are the rules of the Democratic Underground Forum.

1. This is a message board for Democrats and other progressives.
2. Treat people with respect. Don't be rude or bigoted. Discuss the message, not the messenger.
3. Don't post entire articles. Instead, post short excerpts (not exceeding 4 paragraphs) with links.
4. Respect the wishes of the moderators and administrators.


I love number 1. I have heard many stories of people that have tried to object to some of the completely unfounded liberalism on this site and where summarily banned because they were not "progressive." That same rules page also says:

"We reserve the right to ban anyone for any reason, and to delete any post for any reason."

They can and they do. God forbid someone oppose them. They go on:

"We ban conservative disruptors who are opposed to the broad goals of this website. If you think overall that George W. Bush is doing a swell job, or if you wish to see Republicans win, or if you are generally supportive of conservative ideals, please do not register to post, as you will likely be banned."

Unbelievable. Disruptors? Blatant discrimination against the views of people who disagree, and they call themselves "Democratic"? Give me a break you hypocrites!!

Wow, a forum to present one side of a debate... good work! It seems to be the only way democrats can present their views. One guy on here actually says its the republicans who started calling them "Democrats" instead of "Democratics" to insult them, but of course there is no reference.

Ever wonder why there aren't any successful liberal radio talk show hosts like Boortz, Limbaugh, Savage, Hannity, etc? Because radio talk shows require debate, and liberals cant debate. Outside of Hannity and Colmes what is there? And even that show is televised (not true radio talk show) and has a conservative.

Liberal views are dependent on emotions not facts. For a group (progressive liberals) that typically believe there is no absolute truth (ie. against the Ten Commandments and other standards of moral code) which means there is no absolute right and wrong, they do a GREAT job of saying how wrong Bush and other Republicans are and how everything they do is so evil. So guys let me ask, what is evil? Who defines it? Feel free to reply in my comments section.

But don't take my word for it, the proof is in the pudding. The largest democratic forum doesn't allow free speech, yet they say they support Civil Liberties. Interesting.
I do have eyes...and those aren't them!

I work as a buyer at a large university bookstore. I'm in my mid twenties and even though I'm older than 95% of the students, since I look much younger than I am, I get hit on by students constantly. This morning I was walking from my office to the other side of the store and greeted a male student who was shopping. Before even saying hello, he looked me up and down TWICE - then said hello. And his eyes never traveled above my neck. I think he must be majoring in "How To Make a Woman Feel Like a Piece of Meat in 20 Seconds". I know woman check out men too, but we don't just stare at a man's crotch before saying "Hello". Even if I was attracted to the guy who checked me out so openly this morning, he would have no chance. Respect from a man is sexy. Being drooled over is not.
Check it out. You can totally see the bullet in the barrel...




In case you are wondering, it's a totally custom Kimber CDP II 1911 (.45 caliber, of course) with Wilson extractor, hammer, slide release, mag, grip safety, and kokobolo wood grips. Finally, that is the business side of a Speer Gold Dot 230 gr. GDHP bullet. I know none of you know what any of that means, but oh well.... This is my baby. My favorite child. I love my Sigs and Glocks but there is just something special about a good 1911 .45
Aint nuttin but a gangsta paaaaarty....

Man they are advertising the crap outta this new Tupac movie. If I wanted to see Tupac again, I would go to the cemetery.
Ramblings from the new girl

I was talking with the Godfather today and he asked me if I wanted to a contributor to the Blog. This has been a male dominated Blog and while I do agree with many of the opintions expressed by the Godfather (and Digi and Ken when they post) - the voice of a woman has been needed. So here I am. :-) And to clear the record, while I have a supposed hippie mentality, I have NO dreadlocks and I haven't ever danced around in a big blowing dress with daisys in my hair while hugging trees or holding signs that say "Free the Weed". :-P

I've been trying to think of what to post tonight for about an hour. I'm still irked about the Burger King breast feeding incident. I don't understand why nursing mothers are protesting Burger King. The restaurant was getting complaints from customers. As someone who works in retail, if a customer complains about the actions of another customer and it's something that can be easily remedied by a change in location (go to the bathroom or go home), then of course I'd go talk to the person. The Burger King employee was just doing his job. No the lady was probably not flashing anyone but if asked to not nurse in the area she was in, she should have been gracious and realized she was making others uncomfortable. In an article I read about this, the lady said the restroom wasn't "a suitable place to nurse a baby" - like the dining room was? (read the article).

I brought this story up at work this afternoon and one of my single co-workers jumped down my throat when I told her about it. She agreed that women who are not modest while nursing aren't being acceptable but she said, if covered, a woman should nurse wherever and whenever she wants. She was quite upset that anyone would tell a mother to move while nursing her baby. I totally disagree and so I had to bring this topic up again. I know we get a lot of visitors every day to this Blog - come'on people. What do you think? You've heard what the Godfather and I have to say. Let's get some debates going!! My final word - if it's time to nurse your baby and you're hungry as well, get your Burger King to go and let you and your baby eat in the comfort of your home.

The idiots among us...

I just saw a "True Life I'm a Clubber" special on TV. Wow. No wonder I make so much money. The other 20 and even 30 somethings that are still livin' the dream in this country are really stupid. Stay out all night every night getting drunk and then wonder why they are worthless the next day?! These are the drunks in college that always had the "Hey man, I'm in college!" excuse for their constant partying and general slack-off loser behavior. Then graduation (or drop out) day comes but the partying doesn't stop. Hey, keep it up guys.... seriously. You are just making it all the easier for people like me to steal your job, although people like you never even get jobs like mine.... so I guess you are making it easier for the other folks that work at the mall like you to steal your job. They are called HIGH SCHOOLERS.
Brrrrrrrrrrrr!

Is it just me, or is it cold today?
Well if NYC says it didn't happen, it must not have!

"In a dispute over display of holiday symbols, New York City schools are allowing Jewish menorahs and Islamic crescents but barring Christian nativity scenes, alleging the depiction of the birth of Christ does not represent a historical event."

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=35544

Well if New York City Schools is sure that it didn't happen, then I guess it didn't! Oh brother. Pure Christian bashing. Everyone is convinced the Constitution absolutely requires a separation of church and state (even though that wording doesn't exist) however the only 'church' that is forced out is anything having to do with Christianity. Pretty soon the left-wingers are going to lobby to have the word 'Hypocrite' removed from dictionaries.

Don't forget to read my other new postings! Lots of new crap today!!

I knew it!

I just read a survey that proved what I predicted three years ago would happen once the economy started picking up again... Let me give you the background.

When the economy started to slide, and unemployment started sky-rocketing. Companies saw themselves in a buyer's market for the first time in several years. People were losing jobs left and right, and after having built up a lifestyle based on a good income, became desperate for work. Employers acting completely selfish as normal, took advantage of these people like a frat boy with a bag of roofies at a high school party.

Salaries plummeted just as unemployment shot up. But that wasn't enough, so companies slashed benefits, vacation, insurance, etc. But it wasn't just the tangibles that got cut. In fact, I think the biggest negative factor in employee morale came from the attitudes of the employers. I can speak from experience. I heard almost daily how "happy I should be to have a job". That was my employers excuse for constantly berating the workers, slashing pay, and increasing the demands that were placed on us. We were told that we should just be happy to be there.

Wow. How wonderful. First you make me do the work of 5 people for the pay of one-half, and now you are telling me that I should be thanking YOU?!?!

So here are the survey results; over 80% of people currently employed plan on leaving their job as soon as they can. The same amount said they are either partly or completely dissatisfied with their jobs. That's right... over 80%. This is going to be disasterous for employers.

And here is the kicker; the cost of replacing a mid-level employee today is approximately $100,000. That is no typo. A hundred grand to replace one upset worker.

So needless to say, when the job market stunk, the employers cashed in. They used what I call "Surface Logic." Surface Logic is one level thinking. Looking at something and basing a judgment on it purely on superficial facts. This is a perfect example: pay employees less, give them less benefits, we save more money. That is Surface Logic. I really hope they saved over $100k for every single employee, because that is what they stand to lose as the economy picks up. They never bothered to factor in employee morale and the cost of replacing an employee. And that is the cost of replacing the AVERAGE employee. Replacing a good, smart, hard-working, and overall ABOVE-AVERAGE employee is much harder. I don't even think you can put a price on it. If you have one, you should consider yourself lucky. Especially since most companies just pay people based on their position and not on their abilities. That is why so many good workers get so frustrated working for companies that pay worthless idiotic slobs the same salary as those who feel much more valuable, simply because they share the same title or job grade.

So, Mr. Employer, get prepared. The economy is looking up, and those underappreciated workers you have been financially and emotionally raping over the past few years are going to flee faster than Cuban refugees. Good for them - you deserve it.
Put that away...

Burger King formally apologized to a woman that it asked to stop breastfeeding in one of their restaurants.

OK. I understand that women need to breastfeed their children. And they should be able to do it anywhere legally if they need to. But cmon. Do you need to breastfeed at Burger King?! Don't you have a car?! A house?! OK so you may say that it shouldn't make people feel uncomfortable, but it does. And sure, people shouldn't treat people with purple mohawks or afros with one pant leg pulled up any different, but they do. Its life. And when you do things that you know bother people just to spite them, thats not cool. C'mon, take care of your baby in your own home or in privacy. And if your house burns down, you are homeless, or you just honestly have no place else to do it, then go somewhere and try to be discreet. But don't go act like a cavewoman just because you can.

Just do it!


If you don't do another thing today...

Read this. "The Pussification of the American Male."
A shiny new $100 bill...

For whoever shows me where this phrase appears in our Constitution:

"Seperation of church and state"

Just find me that phrase in our Constitution and I'll pay ya! Just go ahead and leave a comment telling me right where it is. Don't waste too much time looking for it though, cuz it aint there.

Californication...

Ah... only in America.... This is an excerpt from a news article about a California high-school student.

The parents claim their daughter was harassed for being a Mormon during a human sexuality class that included a presentation on homosexuality and bisexuality by the school's Diversity Club. They didn't want their daughter in the class to begin with, they said.

"I send her to school to learn something and it's not bisexuality," Elden Rice said. "I want them to stick to academics."


Sheesh! You think this Mormon mom may be on to something?! I mean, cmon, "human sexuality class"? Presentations on homosexuality and bisexuality in school? "Diversity Club"? And they are worried about kids praying?!
Why hate crime rules should be banned...

Imagine this. Imagine your mother is brutally murdered. Gunned down in cold blood at no fault of her own. You would, of course, want justice for her killers. Now imagine at the same time your mothers killers were on trial, there was another trial going on for another group of killers. They also murdered someone in cold blood and should be brought to justice. Both are guilty, but the outcomes of the trials have very different conclusions. Your moms killers get 25-50 years, while the other killers get mandatory life without parole. What gives? You ask. Simple, your mom is white, the other victim was black. Or gay. Or any other minority or protected group covered under Hate Crime legislation. That's right - the life of a white straight individual now has less importance that a minority or homosexual.

But let's put all of that aside for a moment. Forget about the preferential treatment and just downright lack of logic that goes into that legislation. Forget all of that and ponder this,

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

That is in our Declaration of Independence. Apparently that just isn't the case anymore.
Tis a wonderful site...

    The death of Freedom of Speech...

    An Emory professor used the dreaded 'N-word' publicly and is now facing possible suspension. Don't get me wrong, I HATE that word. It is inappropriate and ignorant, but should people be allowed to say it? That is an issue for debate. What is not up for debate is the hypocrisy in our Universities, and in this case Emory University here in Atlanta. How is referring to one group in a derogatory fashion any different than referring to another group in a derogatory fashion? I'll tell you what is different - it's 'cool' to be liberal. It makes you look 'progressive' and 'independent', in a conformist sort of way... So as long as the group you are bashing is traditional conservative America, bash away! Just don't even think of it being a two-way street!

    Here is just one example. A fraternity at Emory flew the Confederate flag. A group called "Students for a Unified Emory" condemmed the act as creating an "offensive and intimidating environment". Yet when Jewish students protested "Students for a Unified Emory" formally bringing Al Sharpton, who is known as being very anti-semetic, on the same grounds of creating an offensive environment, the group simply ignored the issue and proceeded to have Al Sharpton visit.

    I just love the hypocrisy at Emory University. Hate speech is fully embraced, so long as you hate the right people. Emory so desperately is trying to become 'The Harvard of the South' that it will take on any most radical opinion just in order to stand out as completely progressive and ultra-left wing. Any political viewpoint or statement, no matter how Anti-American, hateful, or hurtful, is welcomed as an ode to Free Speech rights, but only if it is a liberal view point. Trash talk America. Trash talk Jews. Trash talk our government. Trash talk whites. Trash talk straight people. Trash talk anyone who isn't an ultra liberal and you are welcomed with open arms. God forbid you say something that resembles, what I call Conservative Bigotry, as you will be struck down and destroyed at the hands of the University and the liberal student populace. Liberal Bigotry, as I call it, is appreciated. After all, being liberal is cool. It is ok to hate whites, Christians, Jews, and Americans. A student at Emory and contributor to their student newspaper, The Emory Wheel, sums it up best:

    For the campus radical, opposition to America and the West must consistently and unconditionally trump any concern for socialism, women, gay rights, equal rights, the poor, the weak, the well being of everyday Muslims and the environment. In other words, even though Saddam Hussein is an abject violator of everything the left claims to defend (and in far greater proportion to any of our government's sins), he must still be defended for the sake of being anti-American.

    And another article goes into the recent "Year of Reconciliation Symposium". Yes, that's right. Emory had a Year of Reconciliation. So all of us whites that never owned slaves can kiss the butts of all the blacks that never were slaves - makes sense. Here is what one Emory Student had to say about the event:

    Was the Symposium intended to be helpful to the world at large, or just a feel-good weekend for ivory tower academics? A fantasy reconciliation.

    For two full days, academics from around the world converged on Emory to condemn men, whites, the rich, defined gender roles, conservatives and the existing social order.

    By insulating its professors and guests from any substantial criticism of their work, Emory not only made for a more boring symposium than need be, but also served to marginalize the program. If this had been a true meeting of academic discussion and debate, those holding opposing points of view would likely have argued over real world solutions, instead of proposing such unfeasible ideas as massive redistributions of wealth and an end to punitive justice.


    And it continues...

    Liberals and conservatives should be equally concerned with the Symposium's unabashed liberal bias. Fantasy reconciliation makes a mockery of all the ideas that it presents. By shielding ideas from competition, it is implied that they aren't strong enough to stand up to their critics on their own.


    So again, selective free speech. Bash the men, whites, rich, conservatives, etc., and only do so in their absolute absence. This is like a KKK rally for liberals. They will get up and debate why they are so right, and conservatives (or heck, pretty much all whites, men, rich people, or even Americans as a whole) are so wrong, but they have no opposing viewpoint! Some debate!

    So I think I understand. Say one negative word about a minority and BOOM! You are an ignorant racist! Didn't you get the memo? You are only allowed to hate Whites, Americans, and Jews!

    Oops, my bad. Must have missed that memo.

    This is one of my favorites. From Alexander Tyler. No, he wasn't writing about the United States. This quote is well over one hundred years old. Tyler was writing about the fall of the Athenian Republic. Do you think it relates to us at all??

    "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage."

    Oh, darn.

    Looks like Al Qaeda is warning Muslims to leave American cities. Do you think they actually will? I doubt it. No one pays attention to Al Qaeda anymore it seems. One thing I do know, if Al Qaeda does attack again, Muslims will be leaving American cities whether they want to or not.

    When ye encounter the infidels, strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them,... And whoso fight for the cause of God, their works he will not suffer to miscarry; He will voichsafe them guidance, and dispose their hearts aright; And he will bring them into paradise, of which he hath told them.
    - Koran 47:4-6

    Let those then fight on the path of God, who barter this present life for that which is to come; for whoever fighteth on God's path, whether he be slain or conquer, we will in the end give him a great reward.
    - Koran 4:74

    Gee, and we wonder why Muslims kill the "infidels" under the guise of religion. Maybe because the Koran tells them to perhaps? Peaceful religion indeed.

    Will justice be served? I doubt it.

    The suspected (I really hate that word) killers mentioned in my Oct. 31 blog were apprehended in Miami. They shot and killed a bank worker in cold-blood in a foiled robbery attempt that netted them 0 dollars. This was an innocent woman and mother of two. Then in an escape attempt they hit a Miami PD cruiser head on and hospitalized an Officer.

    Too bad that officer in self-defense didn't unload his service weapon out of his windshield and taken these two out of the gene pool permanently. One can only hope they get the justice they deserve. But since I am sure they will be extradited to Atlanta, that will never happen. First Degree Capital Murder and Attempted Murder of a Police Officer. They should cook, but they won't. Actually they should hang on the Courthouse lawn, but that definitely won't happen. So at the very least they should die in prison, but that won't happen either. And to think we spend time getting the Ten Commandments out of government but let people like this live. What am I missing? Oh well, I am sure they will be rehabilitated in prison and return to society as productive uneducated, illiterate murderers.
    Someone get this girl some Ritalin!

    Let me preface this by saying if you don't live in a high-density living arrangement (ie apartments, condos) you probably won't relate to what I am about to say. For the rest of us, you will understand...

    Ya know, the trash routine of apartment dwellers never ceases to amaze me. You wait until you get the industrial-sized lawn and garden bag completely full, then you go out and toss it on top of your Jeep Cherokee to drive it to the dumpster cuz your fat butt is too lazy to walk. You spend 30 mins at LA Fitness and then drive to the dumpster... sheesh...

    Anyway, what happened next I see repeat itself at least once a week. Let me paint a picture. Enter blondie in her spandex blabbin' on her cell phone with trash bag in tow. Blondie tosses said bag on the roof of her Cherokee and hops in, never missin a beat on her cell phone convo. Then she backs out, and doesn't even head in the direction of the dumpster. The bag has been out of her direct possession for 9 seconds, and she has already forgot about it. I could flash my lights, honk my horn, make a fool out of myself to get her to stop, but the only thing that will do is get Blondie thinking I am hitting on her. So I watch the situation unfold as it has so many times before. The bag stays on the roof right until she turns onto the main road and then, BAM! Kitty litter, old food, and paper galore. Spread out all over the road and landscaping, and such adding to the disgusting litter-ridden trash hole that is Atlanta. Just think how many cigarettes have to get tossed out the window to compensate for some dumb blonde ditz blabbin on her cell phone with her 2 second attention span. So just like that, 30 pounds of trash on the road. I think the explosion woke her up because she slammed on her breaks and started looking behind her. But did she stop? Actually accept consequences for her stupidity? Of course not. That is not the American way. She drove off and left it to avoid embarrassment and a little work. Now THAT is the American way.
