Did You Expect Anything Different?

The NY Times Endorses No Republicans For 2006 Elections

Comments about the news:

Look up the voter registation and voter histories of the members of the NYT editorial board - I have. They are all primary-voting registered Democrats and all of them live on the West Side - starting with Ms. Collins on down the list.
In other words, their endorsements should be a surprise to no one. Nor should their endorsements sway anyone, unless it's for a Upper West Side Democrat District Leader Primary... - anon

While this doesn't surprise me -- and indeed it pales in comparison to deliberately leaking classified anti-terror measures to try to hurt the Bush Administration (carelessly putting all Americans at risk for political gain) -- it's just another sad example of a newspaper trying to hijack public opinion.
Their attempts to do just that failed in 2004, and they will fail again. - Kyle Coppola

The Times? That's like, a newspaper, right? Wow, I remember those. We used to spread them out on the floor before painting the walls. Now we buy plastic sheeting for the price of a Sunday issue. Are those newspaper things still around? What for? - Frank

Drop Out, Join The Military!

Real smart John, making the troops you so badly wanted to command look like drop-outs. I seem to remember one person who went to Iraq about a decade ago. His name was Norman Schwarzkopf. He was a graduate of Valley Forge Military Academy, and led our troops in the Gulf War, and gathered quite a list of medals in his service.

Here are some other "failures" that went places other than Iraq with the military:

George Washington
Thomas Jefferson
James Madison
Andrew Jackson
William Henry Harrison
John Taylor
James K. Polk
Millard Fillmore
Franklin Pierce
James Buchanan
Abraham Lincoln
Ulysses S. Grant
Benjamin Harrison
Chester A. Arthur
William McKinley
Theodore Roosevelt
Harry S. Truman
Dwight D. Eisenhower
John F. Kennedy
Lyndon B. Johnson
Richard Nixon
Gerald Ford
Jimmy Carter
Ronald Reagan
George H. W. Bush
George W. Bush

Just to name a few.

The Party For Minorities?

Democrats love to tout that Republicans are rich, racist white men, and Democrats are the party for diversity. However, when was the last time you saw something like this coming out of conservatives?

The democrats love to pull the race card while at the same time, pullign the same stunts they claim to be appalled at.


Calling Colin Powell and Condoleza Rice a "House N$&&er"
Using Racial Slurs towards Marvin Stewart, a black member of The Minutemen Project (from the "center of ethnic and ideological equality", Columbia University)
Photoshopping Senator Joe Lieberman's face to make him look like a black man
Calling Michael Steel an Oreo, thenThrowing Oreos at him.
Calling Michael Steel Sambo, then making this photoshop of him.
And many others. Malkin has a more complete list here.

Only In Alabama

Teen Arrested for Raping His Own Mother.

Reason #6927 why I hate Bama.

Funny Bama jokes:

The Alabama football team was in a bar cheering in unison very loudly, "48 DAYS!" They would then drink, slam their glasses, and get another drink repeating, "48 DAYS!" After about 5 times of this, one patron finally got sick of the cheering, and went to ask what all the fuss was about.
The bama team captain Proudly stood up and said, "The puzzle said 3-4 years, but we finsihed it in 48 DAYS!"

How about this one:

An Alabama student was strolling across his beloved Tuscaloosa campus and noticed a crowd of student gathering in the middle of the street. Upon investigation the Bama student observed a visiting Auburn student jumping up and down on a manhole cover shouting out, "Twenty-two! Twenty-two!" over and over.
Puzzled by this behavior, the Bama student inquired, "Why are you jumping up and down on that manhole cover, shouting out numbers?' The visiting Auburn student responded, "Because it's fun!"
While pondering the jumping, shouting Auburn student's response, the Bama student has to admit to himself that it looks like the Auburn student is enjoying himself. "Let me give that a try," requests the Bama student. "Sure," says the Auburn student as he stepped to the side of the manhole cover.
The Bama student then proceeded to hop up and down on the manhole cover. After about a dozen hops the Bama student addressed the Auburn student, "I don't get it, this isn't really that fun." The Auburn student replied, "It's not fun because you're not jumping high enough and not shouting 'twenty-two' loud enough. Jump really high and shout really loudly."
The Bama student started to jump really high and shout, "Twenty-two!" at the top of his lungs. All of a sudden, the Auburn student jerked the manhole cover off the manhole and the Bama student plummeted into the sewer. Casually the Auburn student replaced the manhole cover. The Auburn student then resumed gleefully jumping up and down on the manhole cover as he shouted, "TWENTY-THREE!! TWENTY-THREE!! TWENTY-THREE!!"

An estimated 500,000 fans packed Busch Stadium and the streets of St. Louis as the Cardinals held their celebratory Championship Parade Sunday.

After 24 years of waiting, the World Series Title has finally come back home to The Cardinal's. I wish I could have been there.

Corker-Ford Debate Recap

Well, I had planned to attend the debate in person, but by the time I got downtown, parked the car, and got to the building they had locked the doors. I was a bit pissed to say the least. But I returned to the car to listen to the debate on the way home. I can sum up their opening statements in one sentance for each candidate.
Ford: It's time for a change.
Corker: I'm a true Tennessean, vote for me.

The first couple questions dealt with Iraq, and terrorism. Ford I will admit had a plan other than the typical Cut and Run idea of other Dems, but the fact that the plan he was talking about is the brain-child of Joe Biden makes me a bit suspect of the intentions. Corker's stance was that of the Republican Party line. Don't leave until the job is done, and that the high ranking Democrats want to bail out ASAP.

Here is what I noted about the debate, and the rebuttals which I felt needed to be stated.

The first one was about Ford's statement about what he would do when he first got into office. He stated that he would make sure there was a balanced budget without the "horrible" deficit that this year has produced.
But Harold, this year's budget deficit is DOWN 14% from last year, and down about 40% from what Bush predicted in February of this year. It is projected to be $250 Bil, compared to the projected $423 Bil predicted in February, and $46 Bil lower than the $296 Bil projection that was given just 4 months ago. The deficit is also about $60 Bil below last years deficit of $319 Bil., and $160 Bil. below the record set in 2004 at $419 Bil. What caused this? The Bush tax cuts giving larger tax revanue for the 2006 fiscal year as businesses are doing better. If the budget stays on it's course, then the U.S. will have a Budget surplus for the year 2008, and continue to be a surplus if Republicans maintain the White House, and the tax breaks.

He then announced that he would pust to increase minimum wage immediately, but I have one question for Mr. Ford. What do you call minimum wage after you raise it? Answer: It's still Minimum wage.

Harold Ford also stated that he would cut the budget spending by reducing Pork Barrell Projects.
You're too late on that one Harry. The Republicans already tried that with the line item veto, but your Democrat friends in D.C, and libs around the U.S. don't want it. I will give Ford credit that he crossed the line with 34 other Dems and voted wisely for the line item veto in the House. However, the bill is yet to be voted on in the senate, and it is expected to be very brutally opposed by Democrats.

One thing about Ford is he states that while in Congress he has voted for the side he feels is the most logical. That's all good and dandy, but Harold, you're looking to move up to the Senate. Where partisan politics are Cut-Throat when it comes to the Democrat opposition. Just look at the campaign that was given against Joe Lieberman in CT. Lieberman stepped away from the party line to vote what he felt was right, and he got the cold shoulder from his constituants.

Another thing that Ford pointed to was the 6 year majority that the Republicans have held since Bush took office. Although the house has held a decent majority, in the senate, for some time it was a 50-49-1 lead, with the lone independant being a self proclaimed Socialist. Hardly a ideological majority if you ask me.

Then there were the times when Harold used his one liners in his advertisments and tried to use his play on (lying) words as facts. For example. He tried to tell TN citizens that Bob Corker was still "Do Nothing" Don Sundquist's Financial Advisor when the State Income Tax was brought in to play a few years ago.
However, Corker reminded Tennesseans the REAL fact was that he was only his advisor for the first 18 months of Sundquist's FIRST term. The state income tax didn't come into play until AFTER Sundquist was elected 2 1/2 years later. He then razzed Ford on the fact that he went to attend a party with Democrat Bob Rochelle, a.k.a. "The Architect of the TN State Income Tax."

The debate was impressive, and I felt like neither opponent really answered the questions as they should have, but while Ford offered one big haymaker with claiming that Corker hired illegal immigrants (The sub-contractor actually hired the people, and after Corker found out they were removed), but Corker landed two solid blows with the come backer about the Income Tax, as well as a big hook when he stated that Democrats have spent 3.5 times the money on advertisement, adn that Corker has asked to remove 2 advertisements that he did not feel were proper. I've got to say that this would go up as a judges decision, and I'll give Corker a 8-7 W on this one simply for landing an extra haymaker.

The (Not So) Giant Has Fallen

About time the world saw how over-rated the USC Trojans really were. The now 6-1 Trojan's luck finally ran out against the then 4-3 Oregon State Beavers. The Trojans had survived 2 weeks of nail biters by flukes, including a failed attempt by one team to snap the ball in time, and another team punting the ball with no time outs and only 1:26 left in the game on a 4th and 23. This week, the Beavers had at one point a 33-10 lead over USC, and the Trojans couldn't over come the defecit and ended their hopes at the BCS championship with a final score of 33-31.

This week gets better and better. The Cardinals won the World series, USC lost to an unranked team, I got to host another Captions Outrageous! at TRP, and now if The Vols can beat South Carolina, I'll get to see Steve Spurrier cry like a little baby. I love it!

Also, look here at GOP and College later for a recap of the political debate between Bob Corker and Harold Ford Jr. It was good one, and will be worth reading about.

St. Louis Cardinals - WORLD CHAMPIONS!


The Cardinals won tonight, 4-2, and clinched the World Series 4-1. The Man was wrong when he predicted that it would be game 6, but he was right about it being under the Friday Night Lights. The rain out this week pushed this game back to tonight. And after losing the World Series 4-0 to the Sox 2 years ago, then losing the NLCS last year after being a dominating team, this year's Ch

Hezbollah War Crimes Explained

I was perplexed when my roommate, an Arabic Christian, told me that the areas being bombed by Israel in the Hez/Israel War were Christian communities, but after listening to this interview with Brigitte Gabriel, it all becomes clear.

"The Palestinians would park their cannons in front of our bomb shelter, and shoot at Israel, fully knowing that Israel is going to retaliate. And we're going to die because the way they would do it is they would shell Israel, then drive their tank away. So when Israel would shell back, we,you know, would be dead, and we would make great evening news-great ratings. And that was a tactic that the Palestinians used over, and over, and over. They would hide between civilians. They would shoot their tanks and their cannons from between the civilian's home."

Except one thing. The people living in the houses weren't Muslims.

"And they always chose Christian homes only. Not the Muslims homes. Because they wanted us to die, not the Muslims. And that-t-that's how the war uh, continued. It was unbelievable for us as Christians to even fathom the barbarism and the monstrosities they have committed, because we have no point of reference to such savagery."

They were Christians, just as they had planned. You see, the Palestinians had found a way to accomplish 3 goals, Kill Christians, Make the Jews and Israel look like a villain, and raise even more hatred of Israel in Muslim communities, all without sacrificing one Muslim.

Sound familiar?

HWC Football Week 8 Preview

I slacked off last week and never got around to the preview for week 7, however, if you'd like to see the results, head over to GOP and the City for them. But none the less, here we go!

Hot Wing Chump-ions vs webcats
I'm at a loss of words. I went into week 7 pretty confident and got burned. The week looks pretty tough for me too, and I hate to say it, but I think I'm going to go 0-7-1. webcats to K.O. me 60-50.

Robots Eat Babies vs Gumbo
Gumbo has Trent Green in a sQB since Matt Lienart was excused this week to go see his baby boy. How sweet. Only that the mother and Matt broke up about the time he graduated in December of 2005. Looks like The Man has this one wrapped up since Gumbo has 2 byes in play as well as some injured players. I've got to go with REB 60-40.

Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc vs bRight & Early
bRight has got to be feeling the fact that Hasselback is out and has the struggling Alex Smith from San Fran. I've got to admit, Wolf is on the up side, he posted a 1000% gain in week 7 over his 2 points in week 6. This game may just swing towards Wolf....Aww who am I kidding bRight 50-40.

RFTR vs fmragtop's spewers
After going 6-0 before getting his first loss las season, RFTR went just teh opposite this season going 6 losses before his first W. Watch for Chicago's defense this week to be the big play maker for fm, as spewers get the win, 50-35.

Tax Dodgers vs . I Hate Hillary
Talk about some crappy matchups. None of these two teams are expected to have any stellar performances from their players. Averaging a few yards and maybe a score for most. But putting Drew Brees in against Baltimore instead of Pennington at Cleveland. That's gonna come back to bite you in the tail pops. IHH to take the upset 48-45.

San Jose Arrowheads vs Hector Vex O-Trons
Vex has been on a winning streak and it looks like San Jose's luck finally ran out in week 7, just like RFTR's last season. It doesn't look too good for the arrowheads if history repeats itself. Both teams are slated to score big, but I don't think it's going to happen for San Jose. I think Vex will steal another win, 60-55.

Rose Hill Reddogs vs Gridiron Wookies
It's time for Wookies to step up and rip off some arms. The Dogs have 4 players who are projected to score a big fat nothing, and one or two more will probably do the same on top of that. This looks to be a battle of the defenses as there sure won't be many points put on the board. Wookies to take this one 35-20.

The Ball Sackers vs The Columbia CRUNCH
Wyatt vs. Safety Man. Wyatt upset Columbia both times in HWC Baseball this season, and I think he's going to do it again. Live up first place while you can Crunch. It may be over soon. And if that's the case, and the scores go as I predict, the gunslinger will take back his throne, and possibly never look back. I'll take Wyatt on this one, 65-55.

And now for the Yahoo! Vegas Lines! (Home - Spread - Visitor, Winner in bold)

Hot Wing Chump-ion - 1 - webcats
Robots Eat Babies - 24 - Gumbo
bRight & Early - 5 - Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc
fmragtop's spewers - 5 - RFTR
I Hate Hillary - 2 - Tax Dodgers
Hector Vex O-Trons - 6 - San Jose Arrowheads
Gridiron Wookies - 7 - Rose Hill Reddogs
The Ball Sackers - 2 - The Columbia CRUNCH

Look to John of Your Cake, Or Death! for the recap this week. Next week the weekly recap comes back home to GOP and College.

NRO Mentions TN Senate Race

Apparently even Bob Corker thinks the RNC has gone too far.
The ad features several people posing as man-in-the-street interviews, all attacking Ford. “Terrorists need their privacy,” says the first person. “When I die, Harold Ford will let me pay taxes again,” says another. “Ford’s right,” says a third, “I do have too many guns.” Then, in the part of the ad that has gotten the most attention, a young woman in a sexy outfit says, “I met Harold at the Playboy party.” After a few other people speak, the ad returns to the woman, who says, “Harold — call me.”
Yeah, that's a bit far. The points are legit, but that's something to be brought in a debate civily, not in that way.

The last part about the Playboy party, Ford will claim, "I’ve never been to a Playboy mansion party," all day long, but he has been to a Playboy party OUTSIDE the playboy mansion. Playboy hosted a party in 2005 which ford attended.

A Fun Weekend

Sorry I missed the Week 7 preview. The Man has volunteered to pick up the recap though, so look there for it. I will say for me it wasn't pretty. And I am now 1-3 vs. RFTR in HWC action. But I was not able to do the preview because as I mentioned, I was with The Tax Dodger, my dad, playing golf in Newland, NC. The course was amazing and I took some great shots. My dad took that one of me on the back 9.

I've got many others. If you'd like to see them, e-mail me: gopandcollege[at]gmail[dot]com.

Great Work Mr. Right

Over at TRP, Mr. Right has updated his rankings of political figures on a scale of 0-100, with 0 being the far left fringe, and 100 being the far right. The scale is set as such:
(((((ACU Lifetime + ACU 2005) / 2) + NJCC 2005) - ADA 2005) + 100) / 3 = RPI

Here are some prominant people's rankings.

Alcee Hastings - 11 (apparently he was impeached AS A JUDGE for lying under oath and taking bribes in 1989)
Harry Reid - 11 (Gotta love land deal scandals Harry)
Nancy Pelosi - 6
Pat Leahy - 6
Barbra Boxer - 5
Charlie Rangle - 4 (Who has never met a tax he didn't like. Especially the "Tax as you go" method)
Ted "Papa" Kennedy - 3

And now, look here at Fighting Joe Lieberman, who was kicked out for being "too conservative". He gets a rank of 22.

As for the Democratic hopefuls in '08:
18 Evan Bayh (IN)
10 Joe Biden (DE-Senate Foreign Relations)
10 Hillary Clinton (NY)
9 Russ Feingold (WI)
9 Barack Obama (IL)
7 John Kerry (MA-Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship)

Speaking of Massachusetts, they recieved the most liberal score of all 50 states at 6.2. They are all Dems, and the highest ranking in the state was an 18.
And for my brother The Man, as if it weren't expected, The Empire State ranked 41st out of 50 in liberalism.
Oklahoma took first place with a score of 87.4. The lowest score was Dan Boren, the lone Democrat at a moderate 52. Everyone else was over 90.
Tennessee ranked 21st, but we do have some bragging rights, my Presidential pick, Marsha Blackburn ranked 97 out of a possible 100. Only 2 people were higher with 98s.

Ans especially notable, is Harold Ford Jr. The strong "moderate" Democrat...who got a ranking of 27. The ACU has him at a score of 19 all time, and only a 21 for 2005 on conservative points. The National Journal has him ranked as a 42, but the killer is that the ADA has him listed as an 80 lifetime voting record for liberal ideals.

I have asked Mr. Right if there was any way to find information about Bob Corker, Van Hillary, and Ed Bryant. We'll see if he can pull this information.

The Cat's Out Of The Bag

Major kudos to Drudge and Y Net News for breaking this gem of a story.

An internal memo, recently discovered by the British media, revealed what the BBC has been trying to hide. Senior figures admitted in a recent 'impartiality' summit that the BBC was guilty of promoting Left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment.

Most executives admitted that the corporation's representation of homosexuals and ethnic minorities was unbalanced and disproportionate, and that it leaned too strongly towards political correctness, the overt promotion of multiculturalism, anti-Americanism and discrimination against the countryside.

...The executives were asked what they would do if Cohen decided to throw "‘Kosher food"’, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bible, and the Quran in the garbage bin.

The executives said they would allow everything to be thrown in the garbage bin, save the Quran, for fear of offending the British Muslim community.

A 12 Under Round???!!!

The PGA record for the best ever round of golf is a 59, and the UK's Justin Rose almost tied it. He shot an amazing 60 on a par 72 course, and is 4 strokes ahead of second place. On the 18th hole he had a 14 foot putt for the 59, but just missed it to the left.
The AP then goes on to talk about how he missed an 8 footer and a 4 footer, but for crying out loud people, HE SHOT A 60!!! I'd be lucky to get under 100. And I'll actually be able to see what I can shoot this weekend with my Pops at Mountain Glen Golf Club in Newland, NC.

What A Day

Monday and yesterday sucked. I lost my match to IHH, then got word of my tire being flat. That was a pain. It was a nail that I had run over during the trip, so swapped out that one for my full spare (love my car for that), went to leave and then as I was leaving the car starts shaking like a bronco, so I turn around, and have to miss 3 classes today while my car is getting fixed.
When it rains it pours. Fortunately the repairs were easy (tire balancing, re-alignment, and tire repair) but still I'm very anxious to get to Friday so I can head up to East TN to do some golfing with my old man. That'll be fun. I'll be sure to post some pictures of the course.

HWC Football Week 6 Preciew

I've been swamped again by class work, but dangit, I'm still going to preview this bad boy! So without further delay, let's get to the games!

Hot Wing Chump-ions vs. I Hate Hillary
I've got to give it to Pigg for his whitty come back, "Looks to me like you need to get revenge for the last 5 weeks." And if my team keeps playing like they have been, it will be revenge next week for the past 6 weeks. The Chumps have a slight case of the Bye Week Blues as I am benching McNair for horrible play last week, and I am resorting to Mack Strong and Detroit as my W/R and Defense. Indy is on a bye week, as well as Green Bay's Greg Jennings. But IHH has an uphill battle as their players are going against some strong D's. Like Bulger and Bruce in Seattle, and Philly's Brown and Akers in N'olens. This one will be close, but I think my Chumps are going the way of the Titans after they went to the Super Bowl. Except at least I actually won the title. IHH to win this one 60-50.

webcats vs. Robots Eat Babies
The Man is actually the underdog to the cats, which is a shocker to me, until you look at his bench. The man has had to drop and add players due to 5 starters being on a bye week. Ouch. Cats on the other hand have a few good matchups. Tomlinson at San Fran will likely be the big one, so looks for him to come out big this week. Also Santana Moss and Brandon Lloyd are facing the struggling Titans, so look for Brunell to have a big game, and maybe include these two in it. Looks like the Cats are going to become 2-4. Cats to win 50-35.

RFTR vs. bRight & Early
Over-Rated...Over-Rated. RFTR At least. Vegas has him at 50 points with 2 of his players going into a game vs. the 4th ranked defense in the league. Not likely to happen. Not to mention the fact that RFTR has failed to score more than 30 points in hius last 3 games. He's the only reason my Chumps aren't the full laughing stock of teh HWC League. bRight will pull this one out east 55-25.

Tax Dodgers vs. fmragtop's spewers
I wish all the world of pain on fm's team this week after the loss last week I suffered. And it looks like I may get my wish. Even though the dodgers have 3 players on a by week, they've still got a better chance of winning than fm. There's not really much to say about this game. Yahoo! has actually called it right. Tax Dodgers will take this one 40-30.

San Jose Arrowheads vs Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc
San Jose has been about as lucky as the Reddogs these past two weeks, only scoring 66 points in the last 2 games, but their opponents only scored 32. Wolf on the other hand has been averaging about 46 points per game these past 2 weeks, and is at 51 ppg for the whole season. If Wolf loses enough players to injuries, San Jose can still win it, but I doubt it. This game is going to be ugly, and I think that San Jose will be the first of the undefeated team to get a loss. Wolf wins this one 60-40.

Gumbo vs Rose Hill Reddogs (BLOWOUT ALERT!)
Reddogs have finally had their luck run out, and they are on their way down the ranks. This week won't be any different as the dogs extend their losing streak to 3 games. Gumbo will win this one easily 60-30.

The Columbia Crunch vs Hector Vex O-Trons
The clash of the long names. Geez. And Bye-itis is spreading like wild fire. In a league where you can't just drop decent players on a bye week, it really hurts. Crunch has 7 players out of their 15 player roster on byes this week. Looks like undefeated team number two will be defeated. Crunch need a miracle to pull this one out. Vex wins this one 50-25.

Game of the Week:
The Ball Sackers vs Gridiron Wookies
This is going to be a classic battle of brute force, on brute force. The baseball champ, vs teh current head of the football league and it looks like this will be a high scoring match. Both teams have key matchups, like Drew Bledsoe vs. Houston for Wooks, and Donovan McNabb in N'olens. I'm going to be watching this one closely since it may come down to the MNF game on ESPN. I think I'm going to go with Wyatt being the lone undefetaed team after this week. The Ball Sackers to win 65-64.

And now for the Yahoo! Vegas Lines! (Home - spread - Visitor, winner in bold)

Hot Wing Chump-ions - 2 - I Hate Hillary
Robots Eat Babies - 15 - webcats
bRight & Early - 8 - RFTR

Liberalism 101, Lecture 2

*As taught from a Liberal*

Today in the "Liberalism 101" class, we're going to learn how to deal with people who oppose your views, such as those nasty RepubliNazis. For example, let's take those who don't believe in Global Warming. How do we stop them from trying to inform the world? We can't have people thinking that Global Warming is a sham!

Easy, Nazi-style War-Crime Trials.

So here's the review of what we've learned.
1) Tell the opposition to S.T.F.U.
2) Claim they're not being tolerant of other people's views
3) Put people who oppose your views in jail

HWC Recap Is Up

PFB has the recap:

fmragtops' spewers: 53
Hot Wing Chump-ion: 50

Although it's a horrigble pun, the loser of this game certainly feels like a "Chump"-ion today. You see, going into Monday night's lone NFL game, Hot Wing Chumpion had a 4 point lead. He had a 4 point lead AND the spewers had no players playing that night. The match was over. Hot Wing Chumpion, however, got greedy and left Steve McNair in as QB (who WAS playing last night). McNair racked up a -7. It kind of gets worse, too. Spewers didn't even bother playing a QB or a 3rd WR.

MVP: Da Bears defense! 3 sacks, 3 INT, 3 fumble recoveries.
Goat: Do you have to ask?
That about sums it up. I added the picture by the way. Does a good job of describing the game though, don't you think?

NEW YORK - A small plane crashed into a high-rise condominium Wednesday on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, touching off a raging fire and stirring fears reminiscent of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Police said two people were killed.

Federal officials said there was no evidence that the crash was a terrorist attack. The fire was extinguished within an hour.

A Little Margin Of Error

Have you seen this? A study (done by a sample poll) determined that between 600,000 and 650,000 citizens have died a violent death in Iraq since March of 2003. However, other sources list the deaths at around 200,000 for one, and Iraq Body Count has the estimates between 44,000 and 49,000. That's a very LARGE discrepency. How did that come about? Simple. The sampling technique.

The researchers found 629 deaths after sampling 1,849 houses averaging 7 people per household. That's 12,943 people out of the approx 25.5 million people who live there. That means only 0.05078% of the population was sampled. That means that every single error that they make in their calculations is multiplied 1,970 times. So it doesn't take long out of those 12,943 people to have the number of deaths sky rocket.

Another error that this survey makes is what I like to call the "Accountant error." This happens when you ask an accountant to do a study to see the outcome. The accountant then says, "How do you WANT it to come out?" In other words, the study itself is arranged to show the results that suit your needs. For example, I could go to 1,900 families in the non-violent regions of Iraq and get a severely low estimated number.

Liberals have this weird thought that sample polls are absolutely right, absolutely all of the time. The same thing happened in 2004 when exit polls showed that Kerry would have won by a slim margin, but in actuallity the results were the opposite. People then claimed that the election was stolen, and we still hear the rants and raves about it now. I would like to see the areas that those researchers surveyed to see if they were spread about the entire country, or concentrated in one specific area.

The study can be found here, and check this out. 12 of the 47 clusters they studied were in Baghdad, and 25 of the 47 clusters were in the 4 most violent of 19 sections of Iraq. 53% of the people surveyed were in 21% of the country. Seems a bit shady to me.

Coulumbia U. President Lee C. Bollinger Speaks Out

From the Coulumbia University website:
Columbia University has always been, and will always be, a place where students and faculty engage directly with important public issues. We are justifiably proud of the traditions here of intellectual inquiry and vigorous debate. The disruption on Wednesday night that resulted in the termination of an event organized by the Columbia College Republicans in Lerner Hall represents, in my judgment, one of the most serious breaches of academic faith that can occur in a university such as ours.

Of course, the University is thoroughly investigating the incident, and it is critically important not to prejudge the outcome of that inquiry with respect to individuals. But, as we made clear in our University statements on both Wednesday night and Thursday, we must speak out to deplore a disruption that threatens the central principle to which we are institutionally dedicated, namely to respect the rights of others to express their views.

This is not complicated: Students and faculty have rights to invite speakers to the campus. Others have rights to hear them. Those who wish to protest have rights to do so. No one, however, shall have the right or the power to use the cover of protest to silence speakers. This is a sacrosanct and inviolable principle.

It is unacceptable to seek to deprive another person of his or her right of expression through actions such as taking a stage and interrupting the speech. We rightly have a visceral rejection of this behavior, because we all sense how easy it is to slide from our collective commitment to the hard work of intellectual confrontation to the easy path of physical brutishness. When the latter happens, we know instinctively we are all threatened.

We have extensive University policies governing the actions of members of this community with respect to free speech and the conduct of campus events. Administrators began identifying those involved in the incident as it transpired and continue to investigate specific violations of University policies to ensure full accountability by those found to be responsible.

University personnel are also evaluating event management practices that are specifically intended to help event organizers, participants and protestors maintain a safe environment in which to engage in meaningful and sometimes contentious debate across the spectrum of academic and political issues. These are some of the many steps we intend to take in the weeks ahead to address this matter in our community.

Let me reaffirm: In a society committed to free speech, there will inevitably be times when speakers use words that anger, provoke, and even cause pain. Then, more than ever, we are called on to maintain our courage to confront bad words with better words. That is the hallmark of a university and of our democratic society. It is also one of our central safeguards against the impulses of intolerance that always threaten to engulf our commitment to proper respect for every person.

Thank you Mr. Bollinger.

Columbia University Steps Up
Leftists ≠ Free Speech Pt. 5

Start The Waaaah-mbulance

I can hear the footsteps of the ACLU coming. towards a jail in Mason, TX. I'm wondering how long the ACLU is going to wait before they cry that being forced to wear pink in jail is considered "torture."
MASON, Texas (AP) - Three county inmates in the jail here lay on their bunks, not saying much.
They wore pink jumpsuits and pink slippers, and one was wrapped in pink sheets. They were surrounded by pink bars and pink walls.
They were not comfortable.
Despite the cramped condition of the tiny jail, the inmates said sitting there was better than working outside, where they might be seen by people they know. Using pink uniforms in a pink jail is a small step to deter inmates from ever wanting to spend more time in the Mason County Jail, which might be getting too old to operate, said Sheriff Clint Low.
... Low bought pink jumpsuits soon after taking office in 2005 and painted the jail pink about eight months ago. The jumpsuits are to keep inmates from coming back to jail, and the pink walls are designed to keep tempers and emotions cool in a jail that is tiny by today's standards.
... Low got the idea of pink jumpsuits from a sheriff in Arizona, Joe Arpaio, who bought pink boxers to keep inmates from stealing the underwear and other clothing. In Mason, Low dyed the jumpsuits and slippers pink, and the color later bled to sheets, underwear and other articles during washings.
Low, who was a deputy in Mason before being elected sheriff, estimated the re-offense rate in the county is down 70 percent since he switched to pink jumpsuits for the inmates. He also said there have been no fights between inmates in the jail since it was painted.

The ACLU is willing to overlook the fact that humiliating, or actually punishing criminals prevents further crime, as long as at least one person becomes uncomfortable in their prison cell. It's only a matter of time before they stick their nose in and ruin something that actually works.

Shut Up And Be Tolerant!

I love liberal celebrities. They are the number one source of everything that Libs don't want you to know about their philosophy. Take Barbra Streisand for example. During one of her shows in NYC, she had an impersonator come out dressed as G.W. Bush, and acted as a bumbling idiot. Breitbart has the rest:
Though most of the crowd offered polite applause during the slightly humorous routine, it got a bit too long, especially for a few in the audience who just wanted to hear Streisand sing like she had been doing for the past hour.
"Come on, be polite!" the well-known liberal implored during the sketch as she and "Bush" exchanged zingers. But one heckler wouldn't let up. And finally, Streisand let him have it.
"Shut the f$^* up!" Streisand bellowed, drawing wild applause. "Shut up if you can't take a joke!"

Barbra then apologized for the incident and tried to lecture the crowd about tolerance.

So this would be a lesson in liberalism 101 (as taught from a liberal):
Step 1) S.T.F.U.
Step 2) Be tolerant of other people's views

Yours truly has been honored by being asked to join the staff of the crew at The Right Place, home of The CAPHOG, and where I am a frequent flier. (I even created the logo for FF Club!)

Since being here for the past 2 years I've been trying to get my stories out there, and with this opportunity, I feel like that chance is right there around the corner. I will still post everything related to Hot Wing Conspiracy here, but my main stories of liberal hypocrisy and exposing liberal lies will most likely be posted at The Right Place. Some stuff will be cross posted here, but look from now on, your first place to check for my work will be at TRP.

HWC Football Week 5 Preview

It may be a bit late, but it's still Week 5 Preview time. Let's take a look at the games this week.

Hot Wing Chump-ions vs fmragtop's spewers
This game's got Win written all over the Chumps, and I hate to say it fm, but it looks like you'll be 0-5 after this week. He does have some good matchups though, like Marvin Harrison vs. the horrid Titans, and Daaa Bearsss vs. The Bills. But Jeff Wilkins at Green Bay may just be the key player in this game. Chumps win this one 50-40.

RFTR vs Robots Eat Babies (BLOWOUT WARNING!)
One thing will tell the outcome of this game, Manning in Nashville. Being a die-hard Vols fan, nothing would have made me happier than the Titans giving up McNair to pick up Manning all those years ago. Manning always looks to stick it to Jeff Fisher as he averages 275 yards and 2 TDs' per game. This game may reset the MOV record. Robots will win this handilly 80-25.

I Hate Hillary vs. bRight & Early
This will be a grudge matc has Donovan McNabb will be helping IHH by sticking it to T.O. with plenty of passes to the endzone. Look for Westbrook to also be a key player for bRight, and Alex Smith to rip apart the Raiders. I think bRight will still win this in a close one. bRight 65-60.

webcats vs. San Jose Arrowheads
Cats have a habit of being Bad, then good, bad then good, and this week looks like a bad one. San Jose had a REALLY ugly week that almost cost them a win, but fortunately for him, RFTR sucked worse. Then again this is going to be a tough week for San Jose. He's been afflicted with Bye-Week Syndrome and Injur-itis. San Jose should still win this one 50-30.

Rose Hill Reddogs vs. Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc
Rose hill has only had one game where they scored more than 35 points, and Wolf is averaging about 50 points per game. This doesn't bode well for the Dogs at all. The only thing keeping The Dog's hopes alive are the fact that Wolf has 2 injured starters. However that still won't be enough for him to out play the Wolves. Wolf wins this one 45-35.

The Columbia Crunch vs Gumbo
Gumbo is coming off of a tough loss to Wyatt after a great game over the Wookies, but The Cardinals are rolling like a 5 ton steam roller over his opponents. This will be a close game, but I think that Crunch will be 5-0 after this week. Crunch wins it 65-60.

The Ball Sackers vs Hector Vex O-Trons
Ball Sackers have been extremely consistant, and up until last week were the only hope to topple San Jose. However, Wyatt averaging 65 points per game have set this last week just made this a 3 team race. Hector has been on a constant rise of performance going from a less htan 60 points in the first game to over 120 the next 2. This could be a very tough game for tha Sackers if something goes wrong. This one will be close, but I think Wyatt will keep his undefeated record. The Ball Sackers win 70-65.

Tax Dodgers vs. Gridiron Wookies
The Dodgers started off hot, but then have wavered in hte past few weeks with a loss to Vex, and a tie to the Chumps. This may be a bad sign of things to come for teh Dodgers as the Wookies continue to average 55-60 ppg. Wookies will take this one 65-45.

And now it's time for the infamous Yahoo! Vegas Lines:
Hot Wing Chump-ion - 11 - fmragtop's spewers
Robots Eat Babies - 42 - RFTR
bRight & Early - 12 - I Hate Hillary
webcats - 10 - San Jose Arrowheads
Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc - 4 - Rose Hill Reddogs
Gumbo - 11 - The Columbia CRUNCH
Hector Vex O-Trons - 7 - The Ball Sackers
Gridiron Wookies - 8 - Tax Dodgers

OK, THIS week has been set to be at Public Figures Beware. Mr. Pigg had scheduling conflicts that prevented him from donig last weeks.

HWC Football Week 4 Recap

Sorry it took me so long folks, I've had a busy week, and I was unable to get Mr. Pigg to do the recap this week, so as a default, the recap fell back here to GOP and College. Not only that, but I went to put in the images of the matchups and the standings and it wiped 2/3 of the post out. Yuck, So if the recaps seem a bit light. I just don;t feel like retyping them. As a reminder of how things are scored, I'll shoot you over to The Man really quick to see the break down.

Now that you've been informed, let's get into gear!

Hot Wing Chump-ions - 50
Tax Dodgers - 50
Called this one in the preview. I went into Monday night 4 points down, and hoping that Ahman Green would do poorly and that Greg Jennings would do well. I sort of got my wish. Green was sidelined and Jennings got 86 yards, but no score. I tied the game at the last second, and it was good. I'm no longer completely un-defeating.
MVP: Jeff Wilkins - 1 FG from less than 2 yards, and 3 from 40-49 and another 3 PATs gave him 18 points.

I Hate Hillary - 96
Robots Eat Babies - 65
IHH should have gotten a blow-out alert, but there was another game with an even greater MOV.
MVP: Marc Bulger - over 300 yards, 3 TD's and a 2 pointer.
Goat: Cinci's Defense - The best offense is a good defense, and no wonder the Bengals lost. 38 points allowed and just a sack. Yuck.

Worst Dual Performance:
San Jose Arrowheads - 24
RFTR - 22
Talk about getting lucky. San Jose would have lost to any other team, dropping them back to the #3 spot, but for now it's the #2 slot by 2 points. So much for San Jose's run-away season.
MVP: Marques Colston - 132 yards and a score. Solid Wide-out performance
Goat: RFTR - Laissez Faire doesn't work any more.

Rose Hill Reddogs - 27
webcats - 53
Reddogs finally faced another team that scored more than they did. They are still the lowest scoring team in the league though.
MVP: Santana Moss - 138 yards and 3 TD's. Excellent
Goat: Kurt Warner - 128 yards, 3 sacks, and a pick just cost him his job.

The Columbia CRUNCH - 75
Mr Wolf Cleaning Svc - 53
Speed meant nothing as the Crunch roll on to as the 3rd team that is 4-0 through the first 4 weeks.
MVP: Larry Johnson - 101 yards on the ground and 2 scores with another 41 in the air. Nice.
Goat: Dante Stallworth - Only 26 yards before pulling his hammy...again.

fmragtop's spewers - 26
bRight & Early - 46
The one week fm would have liked to face the #1. Just an all around rough week for fm. Losing the HWC baseball on the last day, now this. No love man.
MVP: Atlanta's Defense - only gave up 4 points, got 4 sacks, 2 picks, 2 fumbles and a TD.
Goat: Matt Hasselback - Under 200 yards, 2 picks and 5 sacks for -11 points.

Best Nail-Biter Game:
Gridiron Wookies - 57
Hector Vex O-Trons - 56
It came down to Hector needing Donald Driver to just score once to give the Wookies their second loss of the season. Alas, driver only raked in 50 yards, as Brett Favre found Philly defensmen more than he found open Wideo-outs in the endzone.
MVP: Mark Brunell - 329 yards and 3 scores. Superb.
Goat: Jason Elam - He should have been on the bench. Wookies could have gained another 11 points and sealed teh game easy.

The Ball Sackers - 76
Gumbo - 31
At 45 points, this was just shy of setting the record of the largest MOV. The current record is 62 points, set by Wyatt last season versus bRight & Early in week 9. After this week, The gunslinger shows why he belongs on top of the football ranks with a dominating performance.
MVP: Donovan McNabb - 335 yards of total offense with 2 passing TD's and 2 rushing TD's for 21 points. It would have been more, but 4 sacks limited him.
Goat: Warrick Dunn - It's bad when your QB has double the rushing yards as you.

This week's matchups are as shown. Week 5 preview will be up tomorrow. Again, sorry for the delay!

Please Tell Me...

I am not the only person who notices something fishy about this picture.

I'll give you a hint:

Look at the color saturation inside the left circle (notice the people aren't "in a haze") compared to the right side of the zoomed section. In particular note how dark the two highlighted people's hair is in the left circle, compared to the suit that the man in the right circle is wearing, as well as the peace sign next to him. This happens in 4 places in the picture. Could be false suspicions, but I'd like to hear from others before I come to a full conclusion. Either way the protest was a bust.

Columbia University Steps Up

The officials at Columbia University had this to say about the incedent that happened recently when CU students interrupted a speach by Minutement organizer Tim Gilchrist, then proceeded to turn into a mob of (at times violent) protestors.

Here is the release from CU.
Free Speech on Campus is Everyone's Right and Responsibility.

The University deplores the disruption that took place last night at the "Minutemen Forum" sponsored by the Columbia College Republicans at Alfred Lerner Hall. The specific facts surrounding the incident are under active investigation by the University and so it is premature to make any official statement regarding facts that are yet to be confirmed.

This much is a matter of core principle at Columbia: The freedom to speak, to pursue ideas, and to hear and evaluate viewpoints totally objectionable to our own is an essential value of this university and, indeed, of our civil society. We defend the right to peaceful protest and expression of opposing views. But it is never acceptable for anyone to physically take to a stage and interrupt a speaker.

Our regulations are intended to help event organizers, participants and protestors maintain a safe environment for members of the University community and their guests to engage in meaningful and sometimes contentious debate across the spectrum of academic and political issues. We will continue to review the events of last evening to determine how that safe environment was violated and take appropriate measures to ensure it does not happen again.

Leftists ≠ Free Speech Pt. 5

Wow, this has become a very recurring theme. Someone with opposing views goes to speak at a college, and students who can't deal with some one having a differing opinion. The latest victim? Jim Gilchrist and Marvin Stewart at Columbia University. The event started off fine, liberals were chanting their usual slanders, "Minutemen, Nazis, KKK! Racists, fascists, go away!" But all was peaceful, for now. Marvin Stewart was first to the stage, saying "ARE YOU READY to surrender your liberties?"

Marvin Stewart was speaking on stage, when people started Jeering him. A little over half way through the speech, the "free speech advocates" had had enough.
People in the increasingly restless crowd shout: "You don't know sh&$ about God! Black white supremacist!" "Go home! "
to which Stewart counters: "I am home! God bless America!
to which the crowd replies: "BOOOOOOOOOOO!"
Shortly after that, they started chanting "Wrap it up. Wrap it up." Stewart finally did, and Jim Gilchrist took the stage, after host, Chris Kulawik lashed at the crowd, "I was under the false assumption that this was an Ivy League School."

About 10 minutes after that, a crowd rushed the stage (video) and took over, not allowing Gilchrist to finish his speech. Typical.

Then as they say, "They took it outside."
A student defending the Minuteman right outside the gates on 115th was encircled by a group of protesters after a heated personal fight with just one of the protesters. The protesters then shouted, "Racist, go home!" Security showed up, and they started breaking up. Student last seen laughing on phone with friends. A mosh pit of triumphal students and community members dance and chant, "Asian, Black, Brown and White, we smashed the Minutemen tonight!"
However, what bothers me is that they then try to play the victim in the incident. This is a statement given by those who rushed the stage.
We celebrate free speech: for that reason we allowed the Minutemen to speak, and for that same reason we peacefully occupied the stage and spoke ourselves. Our peaceful protest was violently attacked by members of the College Republicans and their supporters, who are the very same people who invited the Minutemen to our campus in the first place. The Minutemen are not a legitimate voice in the debate on immigration. They are a racist, armed militia who have declared open hunting season on immigrants, causing countless hate crimes and over 3000 deaths on the border. Why should exploitative corporations have free passes between nations, but individual people not? No human being is illegal.

You know, the ACLU tried to claim that, however when asked by news agencies, "Have the minutemen violated any civil rights?" The best answer that they could come up with was, "No comment."

The Minutemen are not armed guards at the border. They are merely people at a post near the border who look for illegal aliens crossing the border. When they see some one, they call the local Border Patrol Officers and tell them where they are crossing the border. That's real violent, don't you think!

And of course I can't go without listing some of the reactions to the protest:

the protestors outside were way too loud. some of us actually study, y'know? i'm inclined to agree with your cause, but not when it's stopping me from working. you have the right to protest, you do NOT have the right to blast everyone in a three block radius with your rhetoric. - ugh

I have never been so embarresed to be a Columbia student and to be a LEGAL immigrant. Protesters keep talking about their first amendment right.. well what about the speakers freedom of speech.. Half of them don't even know what they are protesting.. how about listening to what he had to say and then if you actually had something of consequence to say, voicing your opinion during the Q&A.... people have to stop interchanging illegal immigratoin with all immigration. if you value your country you should know that not everyone has a right to be here. - Natalia

"giving a shit" doesn't mean you have to act like your typical 16 year old che guevara t-shirt wearing "revolutionary."
the problem with student protests is that they're usually organized by attention whores who just want to make a fuss rather than actually get anything done. the louder you scream, the more people will just ignore you. - ugh (again)

Read the rest for yourself. There are many people who completely disagree with the protest.

But the best way to sum up the liberal philosophy of "free speech was stated by one of the protesters themself.
"I don't feel like we need to apologize or anything. It was fundamentally a part of free speech. ... The Minutemen are not a legitimate part of the debate on immigration."
Think on that statement for a bit.

Hot Wing Conspiracy Baseball Finale II

This time its real folks! The baseball season is over after a 2 week long final battle. And it's sad to say that the rankings didn't change much. However there are two big upsets.

The score that had the same outcome was:
RFTR - 9
Akhtar The Divorcee - 2 (Tie in holds)
Looks like Pigg just caved.
MVP: Aaron Harang - 3 wins and 2 complete games with 23 K's and a 2.81 ERA for the week.
Goat: Aside from Pigg's lack of managment, Joe Crede. A 2/21 slump over the 2 weeks hurts.

In the tied ball game, a winner finally arose:
bRight & Early - 7
Columbia Cardinals - 5
At least the real Cardinals haven't flopped like these Red Birds. Glad I got beat by the team that eventually came out #3.
MVP: Ichiro Suzuki - 6 taken bases in 2 weeks turned the tides for bRight. Without that it would have been a 6-6 tie
Goat(s): Derek Lee - Only appeared once in a pinch hit, and missed his shot.
Safety Man - Chris Cuncan was on the bench even though he went 10/39 with 3 homeruns, and 7 runs. That cost The Cards 3rd place.

And now for the Floppers:

webcats - 10
The Glat-inators - 2
This one was a complete turn around from the 9-2-1 score Glats had the week before.
MVP: Raul Ibanez - 6 Home Runs, 14 runs, and 13 RBI's with a .404 average. Stellar performance.
Goat: Johnny Damon - Turncoat went 4/40 over the 2 week span with only 4 Runs, and 3 RBI's

Wookies Will Win - 7
fmragtops spewers - 5
Wookies led the game for one day, but it was the one that mattered. Wookies dominated the season, so I'm glad to see that they came out on top.
MVP: Albert Pujols - Was there any doubt? 4 homeruns, 8 Runs, 14 RBI's and a .364 average.
Goat: Jason Maruis - Over the 2 weeks he posted a 11.05 ERA. That alone almost killed the Wooks

Here are the official FINAL standings for HWC Baseball.

1st - Wookies Will Win
2nd - fmragtops spewers
3rd - bRight & Early
4th - Columbia Cardinals
5th - Robots Eat Babies
6th - Baghdad Bombers
7th - RFTR
8th - Akhtar The Divorcee
9th - webcats
10th - The Glat-inators
11th - The PAWs
12th - Poca Dots Blog
13th - Gashouse Gorillas
14th - The right wing nuts
15th - CZC Owns
16th - Repubs lost in SD

Liberal Take-Over Of Criticism

I blogged about how liberal bias at Amazon.com was raising the rating of Cindy Sheehan's book, Not One More Mother's Child.

I watched as multiple hate filled liberal reviews remained on the site, when accurate critical reviews were deleted. One reviewer even called Amazon out on the fact that htey kept reviews up by people who clearly stated they had not even read the book.
"I think we've all watched enough news coverage to have witnessed Cindy Sheehan's transformation from grieving mother to tool of leftist groups. It is a shame that so many people have no problem with this poor woman being taken advantage of by people for their own interests. They provide her with PR people who don't have her best interest in mind and have no problem with ordinary Americans coming to see her as less of a grieving mother and more of an unstable radical. Even sadder is how Amazon removes any poor reviews and leaves up reviews by people stating they haven't even read the book."

Now Michelle Malkin has noticed the same thing at You Tube. First Michelle's video, "First, They Came" a montage of the Mohammad cartoons was banned on You Tube claiming that it violated the Terms of Use laws, now the group Conservative Youtubers has come under fire, and has been flagged for the same reasons.

So any criticism of Islam is considered blasphemy, and should be punished by death, but images like these from Islamics in the middle east are permissable, or even welcomed?

Where's That "Horrible Hurricane Season?"

2006 was predicted to be the worst hurricane season on record by Global Warming alarmists. I can't disprove or prove global warming but I do feel that its reported impacts have been over played. This hurricane season is shaping up to be far below average, and is arguably the least active hurricane season in history. There have only been 2 storms to hit land in the carribean or the continental U.S. Those two storms hit land as barely category one hurricanes. Also, the only intense storms, Helene and Gordon, were pushed away from land and back into the ocean. There have only been a total of 9 named storms in the Atlantic, and 13 in the Pacific.

Hurricane season officially ends at the end of November, and October is predicted to only produce 2 named storms, neither of which would be hurricanes, and none for November.

The reason for such a lul in the atlantic?
"Blame -- or credit -- El Niño for predicted below-average hurricane activity in October.
...The whole Atlantic tropical season will turn out to be much less active than the CSU forecasters originally predicted. They say they and other forecasters didn't see this late-summer El Niño coming. "

Fatwa To Kill Benedict

It was only a matter of time before islamic extremists issued a religious fatwa to kill Pope Benedict for criticizing how Islam is spread.
Pakistan's Jamaat-ud-Dawa has issued a Fatwa asking the Muslim community to kill Pope Benedict for his blasphemous statement about Prophet Mohammad. The Jamaat-ud-Dawa has declared death to Pope Benedict and said that in today's world blasphemy of the Holy Koran and the Prophet has become a fashion. The leaders of the Jamaat were speaking at a Martyrs' Islamic Conference in Karachi. Prominent Jamaat leader Hafiz Saifullah Khalid said that in the present circumstances, jehad has become obligatory for each Muslim.

Remember, Islam is a peaceful religion that is in no way spread by the sword.

Islamic Terror attacks:
For 2006
For 2005
For 2004
From 9/11/01 through 2003

So you HAVE to say good things about Islam and Mohammad, or Islamics are going to kill you. Understand?

I'm so sick of Southern Cal getting all this press about "how good they are." The only reason they're so good is because they play the equivalent of MTSU every week. And the only time they play a ranked team, (for example then #22 Washington State) they come out inches from defeat. I want to see USC take an 0-3 turn later in the season when they play Oregon, Cal, then Notre Dame. USC plays 8 games versus unranked teams, and nobody in the top 10. Pitiful.

Who do I like? The SEC. South. Eastern. Conference. There are 5 SEC teams in the top 13, with 4 of them in the top 10. There's only one problem with having 5 teams that highly ranked in the same division. They all play each other. Auburn will end up having played all 3 of the other SEC teams in the top 10 by the end of the season. They already took out LSU, and play #5 Florida next week.
In fact, Georgia is the only top 10 team in the SEC that doesn't play all 3 of the other SEC teams in the Top 10 (they play 2), however, they do still play 4 teams in the top 20. Tennessee plays 3 of the 4 top 10 SEC teams, and of the 4 ranked teams they play, all of them are in the top 10.

The sad thing is that ESPN will never see that the Pac-10 is noting but a bunch of Push-overs with one mediocre team. USC, I DARE you to come to The Swamp, Neyland, Athens or Auburn ANY DAY. Because ESPN might not see you for the over-rated team you are, but the whole rest of the world does.

The Real "Michelle"

As Malkin pointed out, the person who Wonkette claimed was Michelle is actually an Ohio State University Student, barely younger than me, who unfortunately and unknowingly was dragged into the world of bitter satire/politcal hate quite abruptly.

Sorry you had to be a part of all this mess.

Gawker and Wonkette are now trying to play the whole incident off as "a joke," but as one commentor points out:
