Authorities just defused a huge and viable terrorist bomb in London. This comes after Tony Blair leaves office and an anti-Iraq war government moves into 10 Downing Street.
Can anyone spell: Neville Chamberlain?
An ex-Gitmo detainee has been shot down by Russian FSB, near Chechnya. I’ll bet the ACLU is preparing a case at this very moment. The chutzpah of those mean Russians to kill a peace-loving detainee.
The Abu Sayaaf, a small but truly lunatic and deadly Muslim terrorist group in the Philippines has appointed, get this, a Syrian trained Islamic Scholar, as its new leader. Three cheers for the learned cut-throat, Yasser Igasan.
You want more?
Hizbullah, really Iran, are busy little beavers preparing for war. Those U.N. troops Tzipi Livni was so hot to put in place? Well, they are, surprise, less than useless—and, duh, French. Hizbullah have built up their positions north of the Litani River, with intricate and powerful bunkers. Ehud Olmert has said that Israel’s security on the Lebanon border is now historically better than ever before. This is an infamous lie. Olmert is the most incompetent and corrupt leader of Israel in her entire history. It is a national disgrace that Olmert is still Prime Minister.
Speaking of national disgraces: The Democrats at Howard University.
Talk about a panderfest. The only people who spend more time talking about race are the Ku Klux Klan. Edwards, Obama, Clinton: people running for President of these United States.
1. Not one word about national security.
2. Not one word about Islamic Terrorism.
3. Not one word about world-wide Jihad.
You wanna hear the really funny part? They slammed the Supreme Court for it’s decision against school race-based preferences.
The Democrats called for integration.
Howard University is, hellooo, all black.
The only way the Democrats can get in office and stay there is by keeping blacks down on the plantation. And Liberal, um, excuse me, Progressive Jews who are in the power structure of the Democratic party are some of the worst offenders, essentially a bunch of rascists bent on convincing blacks that without the largesse of their greater wisdom, blacks are too dumb, too downtrodden by The Man, to get anywhere by themselves.
Let’s talk about guns.
Seraphic Friend John at that great Mil Blog Op For just sent this over to me. Here’s a man who understands that only he is responsible for his own life. This is why those dopey do-gooders who want to ban weapons are, well, evil.
Let’s check out my backyard, Hollywood:
A Mighty Heart is a mighty bomb at the box office and I think I know why: it gives a Mighty Pass to Terrorism. The fact is that Americans can smell fraud a mile away. They don’t want some fuzzy, feel good, multi-cultural clap-trap approach to Arab/Muslim terrorism They want to fight the jihadists. They want to kill the bastards.
Hat Tip: Seraphic Chaver Joel Weisz for the film review.
My good friend Toronto Pearl sends word of a film I’m actually looking forward to seeing:
You know, I haven’t put up a Jane Austen quote in a long time. So, it’s time. Here’s some down to earth advice for widows from Mansfield Park.
She consoled herself for the loss of her husband by considering that she could do very well without him.
Jane Austen sipped tea. So does Karen. Not your humble scribe.
I don’t do this very often, kitchen stuff, I mean, but when it comes to coffee, well, that’s something I feel strongly about. Karen makes coffee for me in a cold brew, a Toddy, and it is the best coffee in the world. I cannot drink anything else. Really, I taste Starbucks, and feh, it’s soooo acidic: people actually pay for such stuff?
Anywhoo, Offspring #2 just shot me an article from The N.Y. Times. Normally, half of what that paper prints is lies and the other half isn’t true—but this article is, well, short, sweet, and just right.
Karen comments: “The article only talks about the Toddy for ice-coffee, it should discuss the Toddy for all coffee.”
You see, I’m married to the perfect woman; she even finds fault with the N.Y. Times when yours truly does not.
Okay, time for some shameless self-promotion:
Soccer Dad nominated my article The Rupture to Watcher of Weasels Council (don’t ask) and what do you know, it won in the non-member category. I’d like to thank The Watcher of Weasels, Soccer Dad, my agent, my manager, my wife, my Girlses, Akira Kurosaw, and of course: Gong Li.
What else, let’s see, iM racking my ibrain.
iSn’t today the day some new electronic product iS going to be released?
iThink iNeed iNtervention.
Karen and I wish all our Seraphic friend a lovely and meaningful Shabbos.
