Just when we thought things had the potential to run smoothly….
The Terrorist Empowerment Act
We all know if you repeat a lie often enough, it’s perceived as the truth. Just ask CBS’ Bob Schieffer who proclaimed that a Michigan court “struck down President Bush’s domestic eavesdropping program.”
For the umpteenth time, it’s called the “Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act” for a reason. As we recently witnessed a couple of weeks ago, national security operatives in conjunction with British intelligence, caught wind of a plot by Al Qaeda terrorists to blow up as many as ten airliners packed with civilians over the Atlantic Ocean. They weren’t eavesdropping on Grandma Moses or some teenage girl gabbing on a cell phone in the mall. But in the liberal mind, it’s all about them and our surveillance teams have nothing better to do than listen in on their intellectual conversations.
So enter US District Judge Anna Diggs Taylor, a described “civil rights activist” who was admonished for previously attempting to have herself placed on the University of Michigan Affirmative Action case. She ruled that the President and the National Security Agency violated the First and Fourth Amendments as well as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and Title III. She ruled in favor of the Michigan ACLU and our friends at CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) that the warrantless surveillance program was unconstitutional.
Hopefully, the Sixth Circuit will overturn this activist judge’s actions as she blew off one minor detail: the “standing” requirement. Both the ACLU and CAIR failed to prove that the FISA act harmed them personally, as they brought the case to the court; not some soccer mom who was supposedly listened in on. In fact, not ONE American citizen to this day has come forward to this day and accused the government of eavesdropping on them.
We’re well aware of the ACLU’s agenda, as well as that of CAIR. As 100% of the terrorists who’ve killed Americans are Middle Eastern men between the ages of 18 and 40, CAIR continues to lecture us about racial profiling. They cite Timothy McVeigh as the one lone justification to look at our entire population while investigating terror plots. So, in using a Carter appointee ally on the bench, the ACLU and CAIR have temporarily succeeded in sticking all our throats out for easy slitting by Islamo-fascists.
The decision is being appealed and the FISA program is still in effect, for now….
Sharpton: ‘Gangsterism’ Harming Blacks
Sometimes I think I’m in the wrong business, or just on the wrong side of the issues. Or maybe it’s that Juan Williams’ “revelation” is making money, as the usual leeches are coming out looking for their cut….
“We have got to get out of this gangster mentality, acting as if gangsterism and blackness are synonymous. I think we’ve allowed a whole generation of young people to feel that if they’re focused, they’re not black enough. If they speak well and act well, they’re acting white, and there’s nothing more racist than that.”
Rev. Al Sharpton at the annual conference of the National Association of Black Journalists
I, and a growing list of black conservatives, have been saying this for years, long before Juan Williams wrote his book. We were summarily vilified, called the typical names, told we were out of touch, and that “gangsterism” was an “authentic” voice of today’s urban youth.
As an old school composer, I will never forgive what the music industry has allowed to happen to what was Rhythm & Blues. Black people used to write beautiful music, that is, before the politically correct allowed punk ass thugs to redefine the genre. Lazy hoodlums who can’t compose or sing, were allowed to “lift” hooks from pre-existing hits and “make them their own.” They rap and their idiom is less sophisticated than what’s heard in your average elementary school playground during recess.
Gone are the melodies and lyrics that made us the trend setters in music. Now it’s just a bunch of gold-toothed homies, flashing gang signs, and surrounded by light-skinned black women (obviously the music executive’s preference) either providing a back-up vocal or just gyrating like a high-priced Beverly Hills escort.
The Associated Press reported, “Sharpton, who competed in several Democratic primaries during a 2004 presidential bid, said he might run again in 2008 but will decide after this November’s elections.”
If he keeps talking like that, let’s see how long it takes for the Reverend Al to be considered a long lost uncle….
False Optimism In Perspective
Three words for Boston Red Sox fans: “It’s football season!”
Food For Thought
“As Rome passed away, so, the West is passing away, from the same causes and in much the same way. What the Danube and Rhine were to Rome, the Rio Grande and Mediterranean are to America and Europe, the frontiers of a civilization no longer defended. The children born in 2006 will witness in their lifetimes the death of the West.”
According to Matt Drudge, “Pat Buchanan charges the Mexican regime with an Aztlan Plot, a conscious campaign to use America as a dumping ground for its poor and unemployed, both to relieve social pressure and effect a cultural re-annexation of the American Southwest. La Reconquista, the reconquest of the lands lost by Mexico in the Mexican-American War, Buchanan charges, is underway.”
“Buchanan lays out a national plan to deal with the State of Emergency, before it makes an end of America:
An Eisenhower-type deportation program, beginning with all illegal aliens convicted of felonies and every gang member not a U.S. citizen.
A ten-year moratorium on all legal immigration, at the level JFK favored in 1958 — 150,000 to 250,000 a year.
- A $10-billion, 2000-mile double-line security fence between the United States and Mexico, built with no apologies to Mexico City.”
The problem is Democrats see illegal aliens as new voting Democrats, and Republicans see illegal aliens as a potential voting block whose feelings must not be hurt. The result…? A middle finger to all those who are waiting their turn to legally enter America, as well as we, the sucker taxpayers who will continue to support illegals through social programs they’re really not entitled to.
Buchanan may just be right.
The Carter Principle
In an August 15 interview with the German publication Der Spiegel, former President Carter revived his repeated standing as a conceited coward by saying things overseas he hasn’t the guts to say at home.
One of the more interesting question and answer exchanges was the following:
Der Spiegel: You’ve been called the moral conscience of your country. How do you look at it yourself? Are you an outsider in American politics these days or do you represent a political demographic that could maybe elect the next US president?
Carter: I think I represent the vast majority of Democrats in this country. I think there is a substantial portion of American people that completely agree with me. I can’t say a majority because we have fragmented portions in our country and divisions concerning gun control and the death penalty and abortion and gay marriage.
Well Jimmy, such divisions are only exacerbated by ex-politicians who believe they speak for millions and can’t see out of their own little box.
The Evil Rich
Last week, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences reportedly “reminded” our Hollywood elite that the gift bags they receive on Emmy night are considered taxable income and should be reported accordingly to the proper authorities come tax season. Let the whining begin….
According to Yahoo News (how would you like to be referred to as “Yahoo News”…), “Stars scheduled to present statuettes Aug. 27 at the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards received a letter from ATAS politely asking for their compliance with federal/state/local tax guidelines, along with a waiver to sign acknowledging that they received the letter in the first place.”
Like these people aren’t well paid and pampered enough. They throw way too many self-adoration ceremonies for themselves, and on top of that receive thousand of dollars in gifts some of them believe should be tax free. These are the same limousine liberals who chastize and lecture us for not doing more to help the poor, while exempting themselves from “evil rich” status.
Just to give you a taste of the ass-kissing these celebrities receive just for showing up, here’s what’s in the 2006 Primetime Emmy Presenter Gift Bag:
Five-day stay at Old Bahama Bay on Grand Bahama Island, plus access to all water sports;

Let’s wait and see who’ll be the first whiner.
I Guess They Told Us…
Anna Griffin in The Oregonian writes, “Portland will soon become the first major U.S. city to have a children’s bill of rights written by the very people it affects. The document is a no-surprises list of fundamental needs and philosophies any parent or compassionate adult could support, such as the notion that all children should have clothing, a solid roof over their heads and adequate health care.”
“A committee of more than 30 children wrote the bill of rights, and more than 400 “ratified” it at Portland’s Convention on the Rights of Children and Youth, organized in the spring by the mayor’s office. The bill of rights is a largely symbolic addition to his list of kid-friendly initiatives. The three-page document holds a few basic truths to be self-evident: Every child deserves a voice in the decisions that shape their lives; every kid is entitled to a quality education, starting in preschool and extending beyond high school; and every youngster has a right to “physical, mental and spiritual wellness.
“The kids get specific in a few spots. All children, for example, are entitled to extracurricular activities at school, including athletics and arts. Children should be free from discrimination regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic status or sexual orientation.”
When it comes to kids, liberals gotta throw sex into it….
What a bunch of psychobabble bullshit. Every child deserves a voice in the decisions that shape their lives? When any of these kids do something wrong and are asked why they did it, the response is normally the consistent “I dunno….” Yet these kids now believe they have a right to tell us how to bring them up.
Okay, what’s fair is fair.
How about a Parent’s Bill of Rights?
Something like, we have a right to children who don’t lie, steal, and feel they have the right not to be punished for their transgressions. We have a right to kids who’s favorite sentences don’t begin with “Can I have….” We have a right to kids that are expected to help out around the house. We have a right to kids who’ll work once they graduate from high school if they continue to live at home and aren’t immediately interested in college. Do some damn dishes. Do your own laundry. Clean your free room. Stop hounding us about having to have even more cellphone minutes. Homework. Use deodorant.
Sorry. I’m being mean. Guess we all better bend over and let our children run our lives, and let’s pay for the privilege.
Think about this children: Knowing you as we do, if we parents had to do it all again, would some of us use a condom…?
