All For One, One For All

Does that picture not just say it all? Iraq has held its first truly free election in decades today. And what of the "blood baths" that insurgents promised? Well, apparently that was about as much media hype as it could have ever been. Of the hundreds of supposed attacks that were going to happen there were only 9 suicide bombings, and of these, (to show you how desperate they are) one of them was committed by a disabled kid.
"He claimed the rebels had used a handicapped child to carry out one of nine suicide bombings Sunday, calling it a sign of their depravity. Police at one Baghdad blast said the bomber did appear to have Down syndrome."
The age of tyranny in the middle east is coming to an end.

Armor Geddon

This is a neat Blog by some one who is on the front lines in Iraq. Notice on there the posts are from November, but are posted today. The reason I think that they do that? The lady who cuts my hair has a son in the Army Special Forces, and he's not allowed to say ANYTHING to ANYONE about what they've done for 6 months after the mission is complete, and even then he can only tell his family, and they can't tell anyone themselves. I think that this is the case for the soldiers in the armored division like this man. Except it looks like their silence is for 2 months or so before they can describe what they've done. But if you don't think that they are "Occupiers" rather than people trying to protect the citizens of Iraq, then check out this home-made rocket that they had to take care of.

Back to Class

So classes started this past week and I have a decent schedule. It's 14 hours and 5 classes. The one I think I'm going to enjoy the most is my government class. I decided to take the class as an elective just because I love to study politics and any time I can get into a debate, I won't back down. The fun part of the class? The teacher is a left wing democrat, and isn't afraid to show her side. So that means that if I feel like it, I can chime in and pretty much shoot her down. She gave the tired liberal excuse of, "I supported the fact that we went in, but I don't like ht fact we're still there." That's liberal Lingo for admitting that Saddam was a tyrant and needed to be taken out, but wanting to use some kind of lovey dovey "Please leave" note and expecting him to follow it.

Also, my sister sent me a paper from an 11th grade student taking the SAT writing test. These are the kinds that you see Jay Leno making fun of late at night. It was supposed to be a position where you take ONE position on appreciating things. Not only did he take both sides in his paper, in one paragraph he openly straddles the line! I wrote back to my sister saying, "Haha it's the John Kerry of 11th grade English class. Showing that there are 2 sides to every fence.""

Call him what you want, but it's now official, he is again President of the United States of America. I sat here watching the inauguration on Fox News, but apparently ABC News wanted nothing of the sorts. I would expect some one like CBS who blatantly tries to oust Bush with faulty documents and anti-war sentiments, but I guess chalk one more up for Liberal Elite Media.

The speech I didn't think was great, but it did cover his plan for the next four years. This wasn't the history making "Ask not what your country can do for you" speech that JFK made, but it certainly isn't one to forget.

It Was The Exit Polls!

Oh poppycot, just because an Exit Poll shows that a candidate "has the lead" doesn't mean that they are going to win. OK, suppose you take 100 people out of a city of 100,000, you aren't showing all of the votes, you are showing a sampling of the real thing. The fact is that you will likely get something resembling the actual results, but there are so many variables that you may end up far off. The Ohio Exit Polls took votes from 2,020 voters, out of 3.6 million people who voted. Folks that is 0.06% of the votes in the entire state, and you're going to tell me that that is going to be a correct sampling of the entire state?? It's outrageous to think that there aren't going to be discrepancies. But of course you can't convince liberals of that because after all, they think Exit Polls are 100% correct, and because they think that, there is no way in Hell that they can be proven wrong.

How Ridiculous Is This?

The Senate and House are currently debating whether the electoral votes should be counted for Ohio. Now mind you there are only 3 states that could change the outcome of the election. Texas, Florida, and Ohio. All the other states would leave at least 271 electoral votes. The margin of victories for those 3 states are, Texas - 1.7 million votes, Florida - 381,000 votes, and then there's Ohio with a still large 118,000 vote lead. Now how ironic is it that the Democrats chose to go after the one state that has the smallest Bush lead of the 3 states that could theoretically change who won the election...
But of course this isn't an attempt to change the election is it? Oh and what else? They claim that there is a computer in the white house that changed the vote of punch cards, but they do not show the fact that a democratic voter was paid in crack cocaine to submit phony voting registrations, sometimes giving 25 different addresses for the same person, or the group A.C.O.R.N. which submitted over 250,000 illegal voter registration forms.

As I watch these debates I notice one thing, Every time the Republicans have their 5 minutes, when the time expires, they politely say thank you and sit down, however when the Democrats speak and their time expires the Speaker for the House has to repeatedly slam his hammer down and tell them to sit down, sometimes 4 and 5 times. It is an example of classic liberal Democrat behavior. They feel like they know everything and that if you don't agree with them, then you don't deserve to listen to anything except what they believe.

Talk About A Big Help

Two more countries have added their names to the list of countries giving MAJOR relief to the Tsunami victims. Australia now tops the list of aid with $765 Million, and Germany is now giving $674 Million. But of all the people that are giving, look at who isn't, the Middle East. Of all the countries over there, 3 of them have pledged any kind of support. Qatar (a small country on the Arabian peninsula) is pledging $25 Million, and Saudi Arabia has upped their contribution to $30 Million. Pakistan although hasn't given any money, has sent 500 troops over there, The rest of the countries aren't doing ANYTHING. Even though the majority of people affected by this event were of Muslim faith, the Muslim countries sit there and twiddle their thumbs. There is over $3 BILLION dollars of relief going over there, and barely 1.5% of it is from Muslims. The majority of relief though is from Europe. There are 9 countries there that have given relief, making up about 40% of the total relief.

Hot off the Presses!

Associated Press again makes up reports to try to push their liberal agenda. This time it was pointed at *said with accent* Cal-ee-forn-ee-a Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold did an interview for a German newspaper where he said quote,
"I think that right now the Republican Party is all the way from the right to the center, and the Democratic Party is all the way from the left to the center," he said.
"And I'd like the Republican Party to cross that center line. Keep it to the right, where it is. But I mean, cross over that center line a little bit, because they would take immediately away 5 percent from the Democrats and you're home free for good."

The reporter, Marc Hujer (middle) for the Associated Press added the "left" comment, however he did say later that Arnold did not say "left". But this was done too late and the damage had already been done. News stations picked up on it and claimed that he was going to ask the Republican party to move more liberal and have a supportive stance on gay marriage and abortion rights. But have the news agencies reported on the "mistake" made by the AP? Why should they? They've made another conservative leader look bad.

Original AP article
The AP "Oops" article

Also other things to look at are...

Liberals sharpen knives to go after Gonzalez over Abu Ghraib

Leftists cry help for Tsunami victims, but not for Saddam's victim's

CBO reports that top 20% of income pays 78% of taxes, and The top 50% pays 96.09%
BUT! The NY Times reports that the wealthy get disproporionate tax cuts?

And finally
Former Clinton aides hold secret "Save Kofi" meeting

For some good fun, read the "John Kerry" definitions on Urban Dictionary. They're great! And the pictures they have are funny too. For example...

"His hard head prevents injury"

"John Kerry Flinches Like A Pro"


Just goes to show...John Kerry, the true Sportsman's Hero...Those are great.

So Abortion Is Bad Now?

The LA Times reported today that there is internal conflict on whether the Democrats should rethink their stance on abortion.
"After long defining itself as an undisputed defender of abortion rights, the Democratic Party is Suddenly locked in an internal struggle over whether to redefine its position to appeal to a broader array of voters."
But what is the actual motive for this "change of heart?" Well, the presidential loss of Kerry of course. My thought on this is that Dems will carry the banner of "Abortion is bad, but if you can't avoid it..." In actuality, they will still vote against bans on partial births, and all the same things that they've voted for before.

Oh another thing that I heard on the Fox News show The Big Story, more specifically the "My Word" section. He mentioned how there were no good stories in the news this year about Bush, but even though they did that, Bush still managed to prevail. Now all of a Sudden Time Magazine calls him Man of the Year? I wonder if the producers and CBS Nightly News, and the others are going to be able to smell anything besides fudge from all the Brown Nosing they're gonna need to do to the still President, (I just love the sound of that) George W. Bush to make up for it.
