You Don't Say...

-I found these two good videos over the holiday weekend.

-Islam is extremely dangerous; who will stand up against it?

Happy Holidays

-I'm going home tomorrow morning and will not be blogging until Saturday (possibly) due to extreme slothfulness on my part. Personally, I blame the turkey.

-Have a good Thanksgiving and I'll be back in no time flat.

Fly Your Flag

-Now I've seen it all:
"At least you can in the 30,000-person town of Pahrump, Nevada, which is close to Las Vegas and even closer to stepping over the line with an idiotic, intolerant and insulting ban on foreign (read: Mexican) flags. The town council voted last week, 3-2, to approve an ordinance that makes it illegal to display a foreign flag -- unless an American flag is flown above it. Scofflaws face a $50 fine and 30 hours of community service."

"Pahrump resident Michael Miraglia proposed the ban because, he said, he got upset when he saw immigrant activists marching through U.S. cities last spring, waving Mexican flags. Mr. Miraglia told USA Today that he was especially miffed that "we had Mexican restaurants closed that day."[source:]

-I will admit that it is a bit foolish to be waving around a flag from another country that you chose to leave for America. That other country (in this case Mexico) is clearly not as good as the United States; if it was, they would have never left it in the first place. It is also known that most of those countries are decrepit and because of that, most of the people who chose to come to America from Mexico, Cuba, etc. are willing to possibly get caught by the border patrol or even drown in a homemade raft they made out of whatever materials were lying around at the time.

-It is very foolish to wave the flag of a country that you chose to purposely leave. On the same token, it is even more foolish for the "land of the free" - America - to tell you that you cannot wave it. Displaying a flag poses no danger to anyone.

-It is wrong for the government, local or not, to try and enforce such crackpot ideas upon its citizens.

-It stands for freedom; not for useless and improper laws.

Sifting Around The Web 5

-Remember the old saying, "More money, more problems"? Apparently Uncle Sam hasn't. The government shouldn't have forgotten how the Susan B. Anthony dollar was often confused with the standard quarter. It may work (because it's gold) and it may not, time will tell.

-Why didn't I vote for the Left? Mostly because Democrats want to push their socialist agenda through increased taxes and they sell-out America whenever the opportunity presents itself. Another reason why I did not vote for the Left is because some of them stand for return the draft. New York Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel:
"There's no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft, and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm's way."[source:]

-I'm also glad to know that Charles Rangel is the on his way to becoming next chairman of the House Ways and Means committee, which is better know as the tax-writing committee. These upcoming years should be real fun for everyone, especially businesses.

-I would write something more about Rangel and the draft, but Gus Van Horn has already covered all the bases.

(HT: Gus Van Horn)

-As I said before, it seems as if no one, anywhere, feels like condemning evil anymore. Saddam Hussein, who was a horrible dictator, gets so much unnecessary lee-way.
"Human Rights Watch said Monday that the trial of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was not carried out fairly, calling the verdict "questionable" and saying the Iraqi court was not equipped to handle such a complex case."[source:]

-The only thing I see that's complex in this issue is Human Rights Watch's ability to lie to themselves on how Saddam Hussein even deserved a fair trial in the first place.


-Tonight I had the displeasure of watching Aaron McGruder talk in his speech labeled "Ethics In Dissent". If you didn't already know, Aaron McGruder is a huge waste of space, time, and consideration of any kind. The only reason I sat through his statements was because I have an assignment due in my public speaking class. Unfortunately, this speech was the one necessary for me to complete my assignment.

-George Weller deserves to go to prison for his actions. This is not going to be the case; it looks like justice is being kept on the backburner (as usual).

-"Welcome aboard Captain Obvious! How nice of you to be guiding our ship tonight, the USS Noshit."


-Nancy Pelosi is on the ball:
"House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi said Monday her new Democratic majority will extend a hand to Republicans in moving the agenda of relieving the "middle-class squeeze."

"The principle of civility and respect for minority participation in this House is something we promised the American people. It's the right thing to do..."[source:]

-How do you plan to "relieve the middle class", and at who's expense? Call me crazy, but I have a feeling it's going to be at the expense of as Democrats like to say, "big business".

-The picture above of Pelosi was very conveniently put up on the great Cox & Forkum website.

-Read Victoria's article on "Why You Can't Be Friendly In War."

-I'm sorry that my blogging has been lacking the past couple of days. I had a friend come into town and I changed my major earlier this week. Then there's the enjoyment of actually going through and choosing classes that are either full or non-existent. I'll begin blogging regularly - hopefully anyways - by tomorrow.
