Common People

Hmmm, I couldn't get the tone of that last post, MC. Was he being smug? Honest?
Don't know.
Anyway, I think it appropriate that Dawkins interviewed with Cocker, the singer of Pulp, because Dawkins comments sure did remind me of the video below.

In Case You Didn't Know.

Atheists are smarter and classier than you, and probably also got beat up a lot as kids. Jingle all the way, motherfucker.

Wow, I can just see Calvin and Hobbes having some great adventures in this thing. Ugh.

Not Mentioned?

Also offensive to non-Christians*. Bonus.

*I mention this because this is the only kind of article where you will hear them referred to as Christmas lights instead of holiday lights.

Le Chant des Oiseaux

I'm posting this because it has some personal value to me. About 14 years ago I was in a choir for Mesa college and we performed this song at a 3 day Christmas festival in a church across the street from Balboa park in San Diego. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. My whole family was there (except my lousy brother)
And so this is for Comrade. We were pretty good and we might have sounded something like this, but then again, maybe not.
I sang bass vocals with two others.

Seriously, though, I thought cosplay was all about hot chicks dressing up like Tomb Raider. My world collapses.

Here We Go.

Someone is offended by Christianity, better ban it. This is from sports columnist Peter King's mailbag column today regarding 49ers head coach Mike Singletary's sideline attire:

"• RELIGION AND FOOTBALL. From Steve, of Hopkinton, Mass.: "Watching the Miami-San Francisco game Sunday, I was surprised to see Mike Singletary's attire. I know sweatshirts are approved (as long as they are made by Reebok) but the huge cross around his neck? I know this is a man expressing his deep beliefs but is this the acceptable standard? What is someone wants to display some other item reflecting his personal beliefs?''

Good question. The league tells me Singletary's personal jewelry is not an issue (he's been wearing the cross throughout his coaching career) and I'd be surprised if they told him to tone it down. I think the only way they'd meddle with religious crosses is if they obscured the logos on the sideline clothing. Don't laugh."

It's not a good question and I'm not laughing. I see what the person is doing here, trying to equate the Cross with a swastika, hangman's noose or other hate symbol in order to justify banning it's appearance on the sideline. Or maybe the person is a vampire. I doubt they'd be so critical of a rainbow.

No Effing Way.

I feel bad for the lady. Her bid wins on any other day.

We Can Stop Obama...

The Cult Of Garotzuva

Like with many cult leaders, Al Gore has picked the moment of rapture for global warmists.
5 Years from now, Al Gore says, the entire North Pole will disappear.

And I'm glad we have him on record.

As far as I am concerned one of two things will happen.
1.) The North Pole melts and Al Gore becomes a prophet. I will eat crow and the world begins a massive global effort to stop global warming. (more so than it is doing today)
2.) The North Pole doesn't melt and cult followers will listen to Al Gore anyway, just like cult followers always do and a new day of rapture is predicted.

But wait, there is a third option. One that can't be ignored.
3.) Obama heals the planet.
AP has titled a recent piece Obama left with little time to curb global warming
All the stars are aligned. We have Gore on record, the world is in a panic and a day of judgment that follows shortly after Obama's 1st term. When the North Pole doesn't melt, Obama can raise his palms to heaven, snap his fingers and say abra cadabra, and then we truly can call him the Messiah.

Bettie Page: RIP

Bettie Page dies of a heart attack at age 85.
I'm not the biggest Bettie Page fan out there, but I do like the style that surrounds her image. (and the picture above is pretty great)
In many ways Bettie Page represents the innocence of yesterday. Innocent smut, so to speak and what was once considered risque is now plain old pop art. (oh the irony)
Have we taken it too far? I say we have, but I also say we can turn back.
I read a pretty cool quote while looking into this story.
"Gluttony satiates but does not satisfy."
Hmmmmm... I like it.
Anyway, maybe I'll talk more about that some other day.
If you are interested to see what she looked like at age 80 here you go.
Not bad at all for 80. Ya think she had a facelift?

Though they are from L.A. they have a Cambodian singer. (from what I understand she was really big in Cambodia before she moved to L.A.)
If you like what you hear check this song out. It is an old Cambodian song, but it hooked me a few years back.

Despite what the media tells you, the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas has the FEWEST number of suicides than any other time of the year.
Yet "stories linking suicides and the holidays during the 2005-2006 end-of-year season represented about 57 percent of the articles written."
Turns out that Spring and Fall have the highest rates.

NY School Renamed "Barack Obama" By Students

"District officials believe the school is the first in the country to be named for Obama. But even though Obama will not take office until January 20, many other efforts to rename schools, parks and streets to mark his historic win are already underway. Winston Baldwin Spencer, the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda, a country in the Caribbean, says he is taking steps to have Antigua's highest mountain peak renamed Mount Obama. And many parents around the world have named their newborns Barack."

Third Time Is The Charm

Obama may be yet again distancing himself from a questionable character. If this is true, then it would be the third time (fourth if you include Rezko, but I don't know of any real connection) that an associate got into hot water and Obama then denounced him.

1.) "I wasn't there" and "I didn't know" and "I didn't hear him say it," Obama words when speaking about Reverend Wright

2.) "just a guy who lives in my neighborhood" What he said about William Ayers

3.) "I had no contact with the governor or his office and so we were not, I was not aware of what was happening." What Obama said recently concerning Governor Blagojevich.

Axelrod, Obama's campaign advisor, disagrees.
"I know he's talked to the governor and there are a whole range of names many of which have surfaced, and I think he has a fondness for a lot of them."

Bush Says He Is Not A Literalist...

But that he does believe one lesson is literally true.

Gay Marriage?

If any of you haven't guessed yet, I am not for gay marriage. At least I am not for defining the word marriage to mean anything other than one man one woman.
Civil unions? have at it.
Having the same rights as a married couple? you bet.
a ceremony to honor the union? sure.
But the word marriage? no way. (to be clear, if California voted 'no' on prop. 8 I would have not liked it, but I would have accepted it)
Look, words carry weight. They have meaning and the idea of a heterosexual marriage falling under the same banner as a homosexual union is, well, wrong.
They aren't the same. They are different and though the law and the govt. shouldn't treat homosexual union and marriage differently, our vocabulary should. (except for adoption. Don't agree with gay adoption either)

For example, there are people who try to tell us that boys and girls are the same. That society has forced boys to follow one form of gender rolls and girls to follow another.
If we raised boys, they argue, in taditional girl gender rolls, like buying them a teaset, then the boys would grow up to be more feminine.
Same with girls. Buy them g.i.joes, tomboys.
But they were wrong. Boys were unhappy with teasets, unless they were breaking 'em and girls were dressing up their g.i.joes for teaparties.
Why? Because they are different.
Programmed different.
Think different.
And polite society treats them different.
Therefore, we have different words assigned to each different sex and though the govt. recognizes their equality of rights under the law, our vocabulary recognizes their differences in life under natural law and that is the way it should be.
And that is the way it should be with marriage as well.
So says I.

I Agree!

They should give $130 billion to poor countries to fight Garotzuva! Poor countries have such an outstanding track record of making sure handouts make it into the right hands to make a positive impact. I could use a few million myself. You know, I'm kind of the king of my block.

Of course, the sex offender registry in it's current incarnation is some of the most effed up shite going.

And having consensual sex in a park? Please.

Bush: War in Iraq On its Way to Being Won

"President George W. Bush said Saturday the U.S.-Iraqi security pact approved this week calls for 150,000 American troops to be withdrawn from Iraq in two stages — all by the end of 2011."

Melting Ice May Slow Global Warming

According to this, the earth may be healing itself.
"Scientists discover that minerals found in collapsing ice sheets could feed plankton and cut C02 emissions."
Just in time too. Now that Obama is President-elect, the earth will heal, meadows will flower and the world will come together to sing Kumbaya.

Of course I'm not suggesting that Professor Rob Raiswell came to his conclusion because of the Obama win, but I do wonder whether chicken littles will begin to listen to other theories now that "hope" is in the air.

We'll see.

Palm Pistol

For the elderly.
I would say something about this, but I think this quote says it all.

"You "pull" the trigger by pressing on a thumbed button at the top.
"Point and shoot couldn't be easier," states the blurb on the product's Web site.
Even better, Constitution Arms says it's had it certified by the FDA as a "Class I Medical Device." That means doctors could prescribe the handgun to qualified patients, who would then have some or all of the cost reimbursed by Medicare or private insurance."

Palm pistol is just what the doctor ordered.

What Is Wrong With This Picture?

Obama speechwriter gropes a cardboard cut out of Hillary Clinton. So what is wrong with this picture?
(The groping part isn't what I mean. That is hilarious.)

Obama has speechwriter? Not that I'm surprised, but how often did we hear about Palin being too stupid and needed a speechwriter? A million?
But the most interesting part about this is, look at him. It's A White Guy!
Most likely an "anglo-saxon protestant male" white guy . The devil of all devils amongst liberal hate.
And he was able to touch the hearts of many a lefties with his speeches of hope and change.

I Fear We'll Miss The Punisher

Susan Rice a "Mind-Boggling" Candidate for U.N. Ambassador
Okay, Obama is a shithead again.

"A Rhodes scholar, 44-year-old Rice was an aide to Richard Clarke at the National Security Council in the 1990s, and was considered a “radical liberal” who favored the use of lightly armed U.N. troops as peacekeepers, said the insider, who provided this background on the nominee:
Rice and Clarke wrote “Presidential Decision Directive 25” (PDD-25), a controversial Clinton policy document that urged the use of U.N. peacekeepers as surrogates for real military forces in the mistaken belief that warring parties would respect and not fire on lightly armed U.N. forces wearing blue helmets."

"While working for Clarke, Rice supported the “unconscionable” 1994 Clinton administration decision to prevent the U.N. from taking action against the impending genocide in Rwanda that killed more than 800,000 people, the insider said."

Prop. 8: The Musical

Ready your barf bags.
See more Jack Black videos at Funny or Die

I find it funny that they use Jesus, a man who spoke out against the strict rules of the pharisees, to drive home their point about conflicting rules in the bible.
And Paul wrote, "Everything created by God is good, and all food is lawful."
That's in the bible!
I don't think they realize that there are many people who voted yes on prop. 8 and who are not at all religious.
It only makes sense. Anytime these people (when I say "these people" I don't mean fags...err... homosexuals. I mean liberals.) don't get what they want they blame religion.
(Okay, not everytime, but alot!)

A sidenote, if prop. 8 had gone down I would not have protested.
That's because I'm lazy, I mean, that's because I cherish the will of the people.
Aren't I awesome?

A Liberal Making Sense

Very good read

"After all, if 10 young Indians from a splinter wing of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party traveled by boat to Pakistan, shot up two hotels in Karachi and the central train station, killed at least 173 people, and then, for good measure, murdered the imam and his wife at a Saudi-financed mosque while they were cradling their 2-year-old son — purely because they were Sunni Muslims — where would we be today? The entire Muslim world would be aflame and in the streets."

"Sure, better intelligence is important. And, yes, better SWAT teams are critical to defeating the perpetrators quickly before they can do much damage. But at the end of the day, terrorists often are just acting on what they sense the majority really wants but doesn’t dare do or say. That is why the most powerful deterrent to their behavior is when the community (the muslim community) as a whole says: “No more. What you have done in murdering defenseless men, women and children has brought shame on us and on you.”"

When liberals start talking like this it makes me wonder if the Obama win has anything to do with it. Obama is president elect now and islamo crazies are still killing people, but not just in Israel or western countries.
This time in India. (actually they have been attacking India for quite sometime, but nothing spectacular enough to make the front page.)
So what's the deal?
Are they finally realizing the threat of islamofascism, or are they so invested in a successful Obama presidency that they are now willing to stand and be heard?

Ziegler Update

Remember this?

Zogby ran the same questions, but this time with McCain voters. The results are below.

35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.
Obama voters got the “congressional control” question wrong by 43-41.
Those that got “congressional control” correct voted 56-43 for McCain.
Those that got “congressional control” wrong voted 65-35 for Obama.

Who cares, right?
I wonder how many of each watch Foxnews.

The Day's Annoying Post

NYTimes paves the way for Obama and the Dems to receive full credit for Iraq victory. Expect this argument to be on lips of all Dems in the near future.

Some tasty morsels for you just so you know what you are getting yourself into.

"In 2003, the United States, under President Bush, invaded Iraq to change the regime. Terrible postwar execution and unrelenting attempts by Al Qaeda to provoke a Sunni-Shiite civil war turned the Iraqi geopolitical space into a different problem — a maelstrom of violence for four years, with U.S. troops caught in the middle. A huge price was paid by Iraqis and Americans. This was the Iraq that Barack Obama ran against."

"There is now, for the first time, a chance — still only a chance — that a reasonably stable democratizing government, though no doubt corrupt in places, can take root in the Iraqi political space."

"That is the Iraq that Obama is inheriting. It is an Iraq where we have to begin drawing down our troops — because the occupation has gone on too long and because we have now committed to do so by treaty — but it is also an Iraq that has the potential to eventually tilt the Arab-Muslim world in a different direction."

"If he (Obama) can pull this off, and help that decent Iraq take root, Obama and the Democrats could not only end the Iraq war but salvage something positive from it. Nothing would do more to enhance the Democratic Party’s national security credentials than that."

Annoying, isn't it?
Iraq IS a success for one reason. The U.S. never quit.
The Dems cannot take credit for that.
