Absurd Spices

Fun and frustration from a gimp with an axe to grind. After all, absurdity is the spice of life. There will also be Punch and Pie

The Undeniable Scent Of Anticipation And Vindication

I’ve a great opportunity coming up. I have an interview for a new position tomorrow. The nerves are already setting in. I imagine that all this day, we’ll be dealing with the giddiness of possibility, the nervousness of the interview process, and the fear that I am going to cock it up like no other.

As may have been guessed by hints I’ve made in some of my posts, and outright declarations in others, I have a couple of slight physical handicaps. I wasn’t born that way, bad motorcycle handling did it to me. Before my accident, I had worked my way up to one step under the helpdesk manager. Our helpdesk was arranged with one member catching all the calls and the rest of us running Tier II and some Tier III tickets. I was at the top of our Tech food chain, and we were touted as the best desk in the company by many of the SVPs and Board Members. This was when I worked at Bechtel, which is a very large global EPC firm. I also did all of our video conferencing, administered our third-party RAS tool users and software, built databases, and did the deskside support for the VIPs in our office. Then I hit a light pole on my Shadow, and it was all downhill from there.

When I returned from work after recovering from the accident, a few surgeries and an amputation, I was treated with Kid Gloves. They didn’t think I could do anything, so they turned me into the call catcher. Needless to say, this made it easier for them to RIF me when the time came. It also created a stigma when I went out on interviews for new jobs. Then I finally got one. Being the call catcher. But that might change soon.

I am interviewing for a server admin type position and am hoping that all goes well. I’ve felt my skills atrophy the longer I’ve sat answering calls from this queue. This new position will utilize skills I already know, and teach me skills I do not yet posses. The anticipation is killing me. Plus it will mean more money, which is always good. It also means regaining a measure of my self respect back. It’s a chance to have my own assertions that I’m not just some damned cripple verified, and understood.

I apologize that this wasn’t my normal Essay-like writing rants, but I wanted to share the hopefully good news.

A moment of anger

Greetings! Today's regularly scheduled post will not be seen today due to the Normalyl focused anger of Jesse W. being a bit unfocsed today. In short, he's a tad bit bitchy.

But join us tomorrow for our regularly scheduled ranting and incoherent prose. Thank you for your loyal readership, and forgive Jesse W. from being a moody little bastard.

Oops! We Did It Again.

Yay! My city has made national news. In my lifetime, I can really only remember two other times where this has happened. The first was when the ethnic groups at the high school I attended started a race riot that spilled out into the street and had police in riot gear come out to join in the fun of quelling an asinine exercise in applied racism. Oddly enough, the South Mountain High School students left us White folk alone on this one. But we made national. Before that, there was the controversy over AZ not having an MLK Jr. Day that was officially observed. And yesterday, we really out did ourselves! We had a nutjob take several hostages in a Federal courtroom and threaten their lives. The Arizona Republic reports the situation here.

The great thing was that I live maybe 3 miles from the scene of the action, so it was nothing but police and news helicopters filling the downtown sky. There were many fine officers of the Phoenix Police Department present, both uniformed and undercover. In addition to this, there were several SWAT members and two robots used in hostage situations. On the Federal side, several FBI agents were onsite. Apparently, several hostage negotiators were all in the mix, attempting to get this wacko to surrender. He did so, dropping the two handguns he had with him, after authorities agreed to, and complied with, his demands to see his wife and sister.

No one has any idea why the hell this loon did what he did or chose the venue he chose. He stormed into a Labor Relations Board Courtroom, of the Federal bent, with just two handguns. Let me repeat that so it sinks in: The man, for no obvious reason, decided to tweak Uncle Sam’s nose by taking a Federal judge, some lawyers and plaintiff/defendant bystanders, hostage… with only two handguns. What. The. Hell?! The man had to have known that none of it would end well in the long run. He immediately ceded jurisdiction of the situation to the Feds when he decided to use government property for his little fit.

Perhaps he hadn’t really though about the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team. Ruthless, skilled, deadly professionals who know how to end hostage situations rather well and with extreme prejudice. Men who would undoubtedly be armed with H&K MP5’s, flash-bang grenades, and a whole hell of a lot of tactical training. The apparent lack of realization on his part as to what could be brought to bear to bring him down is glaringly obvious, in that HE ONLY HAD TWO HANDGUNS!!!

The good news in this story is that it has an ending. A happy one for the hostages, and on some level, for the hostage taker. He still gets to keep breathing and will see another day. The situation finally came to a close at 10:30 P.M. AZ time with no injuries to any parties involved. Though, I can imagine the therapy that the hostages will need and my sympathies and prayers go out to them. I am also grateful for the men and women of Law Enforcement, both local and Federal, that ended this potentially deadly situation with aplomb, smoothly and smartly.

The lesson: If you’re going to put your dick out in the chopping block, you’d better damn well know the reasons for which you’re doing it, and remember the big knives that are coming your way. Might make you think twice.

I Am Jack's Complete Lack Of Surprise.

I don’t know why I am still surprised anymore by the erratic behavior that takes place in any part of the Middle East. Yet, for some reason, I am. When I read the news or hear of more violence, it throws me for a loop. I guess it comes from living in a society where I’m really not too skittish about extremists of any bent coming after me. Though, I had a Pakistani hit to this site from a non-flattering comment about Islam, made on another blog. So, my day may be coming. It just astounds me to read headline after headline of mindless violence. It’s almost like reading a local New York newspaper.

The reason for my incredulity is this article that was posted at Foxnews.com. It appears that the “Religion of Peace” just keeps on proving what a truly peaceful and reasonable faith it is. 47 Iraqi workers, who were just trying to get to earn a living for their families, were removed from their bus by angry religious extremists. The article didn’t make clear whether the victims were Shiite, Sunni, or Kurd, but you can guarantee they were not the same sect of Islam that the gunmen were. And this is just the death toll for one incident in Baqouba. This doesn’t even touch upon the other senseless deaths being committed in the name of “the true followers” of this “Religion of Peace”.

It would seem that the bombing of a shrine sparked the latest round of violence. However, given the deep-seated resentment that the sects/tribes/ethnic groups/families/gangs/militias/thugs bear towards each other, violence could be sparked and rage on, for no reason beyond a Sunni accidentally stepping on a Shiite’s toe. Amazingly, well, not really, the Left is silent and does nothing to try and get the muslims to practice “Religious Tolerance”. I’m sure this will be used as an “example” that Iraq has become a quagmire. Well, if the cause of liberating a people that has only known oppression, and violently so, is a quagmire, then I say, “Giggity”. But what if this happened here?

Since the Left seems to hate traditional Christianity, we’ll use the example of a couple of compromised “Christian” denominations. What would the Left do if a Presbyterian fire-bombed an Episcopal or United Methodist church? What if Anglicans were killing United Methodists by dragging them from subway stops in New York City and executing them? They’d be up in arms. They’d be screaming about religious tolerance and ceasing the violence. They’d be demanding the Harshest penalties the Law provides. Yet, since we are dealing with Arab muslims, they don’t say a word. They pass it off as just being the only culture they know, and that we could never understand. These so-called defenders of Human Rights and “Religious Tolerance” are amazingly, again, not really, silent.

We are over there, risking our selfless young men and women of the armed forces, to bring change to that region. To try to let the rule of Law reign. To establish democracy in a region where it has been unimaginable. To bring hope and stability to a tumultuous people. I salute these brave soldiers and all who support the effort in Iraq. I also pray that the people will learn to live within the rule of law, and look past sectarian differences to establish a lasting peace for Shiite, Sunni and Kurd alike. And may God have mercy on those that slaughter the innocent in the name of a false religion, a false god, and their own greed and lust for power.

They will certainly burn, baby, burn… but this ain’t no disco inferno.

What The Hell?!?!?

I find myself agreeing with DhimmiCratic leadership, and it’s disconcerting. The only saving grace is that most Republicans are also in agreement, so it mitigates some of the urge to empty my stomach. When I first heard the news that the U.S. was allowing control of 6 Major U.S. ports to be sold to the UAE, I nearly went through the roof. Security in seaports is bad enough without an Islamic Arab nation holding the reigns. I thought to myself, “Surely President Bush will put a stop to this!”

And, my friends, I was dead wrong. The Washington Post and other “news” outlets of the MSM, as well as numerous blogs from both sides, are reporting a very different stance. Now, as we all know, the president has the power to veto any bill set before him. The Legislature can overturn a veto with enough votes, but there we are. This veto power is being wielded as a threat by the President to try and keep the UAE deal alive. Threatening to veto any bill quashing a deal he himself should have taken care of and blocked. I checked my calendar. It’s not April Fools’ Day, or Opposite day. The man is serious.

This of all things, the Prez is going to use his veto on. Well, I say, “Step up to the plate and swing.” In an unprecedented show of bipartisanship on behalf of the War on Terrorism and National Security, Congressional Dhimmis and Republicans have both sworn to strike down this sale. This comes as a major surprise since the goal of the DNC and seated Dhimmis has appeared to be the slow weakening of our ability to prosecute the War on Terrorism and to make the nation more secure. This is a rare case of the elected actually making decisions based on their constituents and not their own whims. Don’t pass out from shock!

So, Mr. President, how dare you? What the hell are you thinking? I’ve supported you on nearly everything in your administration, but this is unconscionable. It is time to stand up and quash this whole fiasco. We don’t negotiate with terrorists… especially not in business negotiations.

We Love You Muslims, Oh Yes We Do...

Another lovely example of the wisdom of European Multi-cultural policy. Courtesy of none other than the “Religion of Peace.”. Some how, I don’t see this trend reversing unless the EU pulls its head out of its rectum. The Crinioanal Interfacing could explain why these countries can’t see clearly the situation in front of them. Let us bring back the old days of Immigrant Assimilation and halt the march of European Sharia.

Can you say, “Swedenstine”?

As The Stomach Turns

Anger. Disgust. Resentment. Disgust. Barely-contained rage. These are the things I think about when I think about partial-birth abortion. When the huge debates over this self same issue were raging in the 90’s, I was a bit too young or too self-absorbed to pay attention. You’d think a teen with raging hormones might pay attention to topics like this. But now I’ve been reminded of it, obviously, by the news that the SCOTUS is going to be voting on the issue of whether or not to reinstitute a ban on this type of “procedure” (Read: Murder). And, it has my blood boiling now that I’m more aware of things.

Now, this may come as a shock, but I am a White, Christian, Republican Male, and therefore am seen by the Left as having no opinion worth listening to as I’m “The Oppressor”. Of course they choose to Lionize Ted Kennedy, who is not only a White Male, but a Womanizing, Elitist Filthy, Stinking (emphasis on stinking… sort of a scotch/gin odor) Rich Hypocrite. So, because of my view on murdering infants, the Left states I’m trying to control a woman’s body. In actuality, I am a huge fan of equal rights. For woman AND child.

Wikipedia has an entry all about the “procedure” here and here. Considering the description of this procedure, it astounds me that anyone that claims to be for the people, as well as compassionate and caring, as the Left does, would defend this in anyway. The procedure is described as:

National Right to Life Description of an Intact D & X

This section provides the description that the Right to Life advocacy group uses for the procedure.

Partial-Birth Abortion

Abortionists sometimes refer to these or similar types of abortions using obscure, clinical-sounding euphemisms such as "Dilation and Extraction" (D&X), or "intact D&E" (IDE) which mask the realities of how the abortions are actually performed.

This procedure is used to abort women who are 20 to 32 weeks pregnant -- or even later into pregnancy.* Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist reaches into the uterus, grabs the unborn baby’s leg with forceps, and pulls the baby into the birth canal, except for the head, which is deliberately kept just inside the womb. (At this point in a partial-birth abortion, the baby is alive.) Then the abortionist jams scissors into the back of the baby’s skull and spreads the tips of the scissors apart to enlarge the wound. After removing the scissors, a suction catheter is inserted into the skull and the baby’s brains are sucked out. The collapsed head is then removed from the uterus.

American Pregnancy Association Description of an Intact D & X

This section provides the description that the American Pregnancy Association uses for the procedure.

Dilation and Extraction

The dilation and extraction procedure is used after 21 weeks gestation. The procedure is also known as D & X, Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression and Partial Birth Abortion. Two days before the procedure, laminaria is inserted vaginally to dilate the cervix. Your water should break on the third day and you should return to the clinic. The fetus is rotated and forceps are used to grasp and pull the legs, shoulders and arms through the birth canal. A small incision is made at the base of the skull to allow a suction catheter inside. The catheter removes the cerebral material until the skull collapses. Then the fetus is completely removed.

So, as we can see, the little fellow/gal is kept partially inside the womb so the procedure can be performed and the doctor can’t be carted away in handcuffs for murder. Just reading the entry to post it made me want to vomit. I’m really puzzled as to where the, “First do no harm.” Clause fits in to all this. I sure am glad I won’t have an MD next to my name come Judgment Day.

Now I understand that there are situations where both the baby and the mother will die if a child is not aborted. And I mean it when I say child, as life begins at conception. But this “procedure” is being used for unwanted children. The women have waited well past the 1st Trimester, being well aware that they were pregnant, and dragged their feet on the decision. Considering how the child might inconvenience their lives, then decide to rid themselves of him/her. At this point, the only way to do it legally, since the child has a small chance at being viable outside of the womb, is this “procedure”. Murder served up with just enough technicality thrown into the mix to not be called such. And lawyers wonder why the rest of us with souls hate them.

But hopefully, with the good sense that now happens to be on the SCOTUS bench, we will see an end to this slaughter. How any doctor, with even a thimble’s full of conscience, can do this “procedure” is beyond me. The definitions above even point to the fact that there are fully formed legs, arms, and a head. This is a child and not a mass of cells people on both sides of the debate can be morally ambiguous about. And they are being murdered because this procedure has been claimed as legal as a child of the very bad law presented by the Roe v. Wade decision. But as a white guy, I guess I have no say.

Let us just hope that nine men and women, of disparate racial makeup, wearing the black robes of the highest Judicial office of the land, will make the right choice. Dear Justices, please pull your heads out of your collective asses and call a spade a spade. Call a murder a murder. And call out to God for the guidance and the strength to do so. Protect those with life that cannot defend their own! End Partial-Birth abortion now!

What Happes To A Dream Deferred? Does It Acquire Bling?

Turn on your TV at any given point in the day, and you’ll see those ever so wonderful commercials. They’re on radio, too oddly enough. Oh, and then there are print ads. And they seem to have a common thread of late that I find disturbing. It would seem that any company wanting to sell its product is forced to pander to a rather despicable part of “American” culture. The hip-hop set. This oh so wonderful “culture” that has spat in the eye of Joe Lewis, Jesse Owens, The Tuskegee Airmen, The Massachusetts 54th Regiment, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Rosa Parks, etc., and their struggles and victories, is being lauded as acceptable, and good. I find this grossly offensive and dishonorable to the memories of those who have fought so hard to provide freedom, rights, and equal standing in the eyes of a past segregationist White population. If you listen closely, you can here the low rumbling of these pioneers and heroes turning in their graves.

It is a shame that so-called “Black” culture is equated with this hip-hip trend. Hip-hop itself glorifies the degradation of women, the relentless pursuit of easy cash, violence amongst one’s own people and anyone else that doesn’t give them “respect,” and an overall skewing toward the violent and criminal. Young Black children, teens, and even 20-30-something adults are forced to accept this culture or be ostracized for being “White” or selling out. Hip-hop artist are claiming it’s just an image to sell records, but they have become role models of the worst kind.

It is a shameful fact that in North American, South American, Caribbean and even European cultures, Black folks were treated as a subclass of the human race and thus oppressed. But there is a shining light there. Many noble Black folks fought against that viewpoint and ideology to show that the difference was only skin deep. They fought harder than their White counterparts and established a legacy to be praised and admired. The Tuskegee Airmen, in their zeal to prove that they were equals or betters of any White pilot in the air, fought fiercely and with aplomb, never having lost a single bomber on their numerous escort sorties.

No one enjoys being associated with a stereotype, or judged just by the way they look, but it is happening. The prevalence of the hip-hop culture is creating a generation of Black, White etc. folks that look like disreputable thugs. The focus is on fast money and getting “respect”, rather than on academic achievement and living as a contributing part of society. There are cries of, “Racism! Racism!”, but the culture refuses to come to terms with the fact that equality does exist. Those with the application of one’s self, any American can achieve their dreams. Those that try to live as valuable members of society and seek to live within the system, the culture mocks as “Uncle Toms”, or “Oreos”.

Those who came before, those who laid the foundation of a better world for future generations of Black men and women are being made a mockery. Their hard work and perseverance to set themselves up as equals, governed by the rule of law, by the rules of society, by reason and zeal for equality, is being twisted to naught by those that have been riled by race-baiters seeking to further their influence at the cost of their people. The men and women that went before, I salute; the “men“ and “women” who have torn the good works down with the shameful hip-hop “culture”, I shake my head at in shame.

It is my hope that this cultural fad will soon pass, and the honor, integrity, service, selflessness and valor of previous generations will once again enter and permeate the zeitgeist and we can live as a civilized society again. I pray that the poison that has permeated the minds of Black youth, choking their enormous potential, subsides. Slavery has been over for over a hundred years. Jim Crow laws have been over for over 50 years; and segregation as reality for over 40. It is time to take off the mental yoke, and be accepted into the fold of American society, rather than make a mockery of your own people.

A Blank Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

It’s amazing how easily the daily bloggers make this all seem. Daily they issue new content that is on point, entertaining and well-worded. It is not as if I don’t have a rather large stack of axes to grind, it merely seems they never come to me when bidden, and tend to hit my mind at the worst possible moments. I get the topic, my mind ranges over it, and I’m stuck in traffic, away from a pen or anything else with which to write the though down. So, what might have ended up a rather well-crafted rant end up aborted and flushed out of my mind by the time any device for recording my thoughts is available.

Perhaps a tape recorded or electronic reminder. Of course, I could also keep a list of my rants and choose from the menu from day to day. But I’m lazy, so perhaps I’ll hire a migrant worker (read: Completely Illegal Alien) to follow me around and record what I need to have recorded. It could end up cheaper in the long run. Of course I’d have to let them into my car, since that’s when inspiration strikes. Good thing I keep a .357 in the glove box.

Have a good day all and remember: Never accept a ride from Ted Kennedy.

Like $50 for Chocolate

Today is Valentine’s Day. It is a day where we decide to celebrate love and also jack up the prices on roses, fancy dinners and chocolates. It’s a day that we set aside time and money to let the man/woman in our life know that we love them. Though, if we are very smart, and really in love, we let them know every day. I have a love that I’ll be spending the evening with and showering with what gifts I can afford.

So, in honor of the day, I am refraining from the vitriol that I normally offer on these pages and sending a message of love. Let that special someone know how much you really care. Do something extremely thoughtful and special to only you two. You don’t have to spend gobs of money, just be generous with your love!

And then, tomorrow, we’ll rip on something else that cheeses me off. Until then:

Happy Valentine’s Day!

-Jesse W.

P.S. If any one says, “Happy Valen"times" Day to me, they are getting a boot to the teeth.

Just Found Out

The Carnival of Comedy is up! Visit Right Wing Duck's place for "Teh Funny".

Click, Click, Boom!

“The Constitution is not a suicide pact.” Sometimes it’s quoted as the Bill of Rights not being so. Either way, it’s truth. These were the famous words written by Justice Robert H. Jackson in a dissenting opinion while he sat upon the bench of the United States Supreme Court. I’m sure I’m not the first to use this phrase, nor will I be the last. As Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NIV) states, “There is nothing new under the Sun…”, so I’m not really treading on new territory.

It would seem that we are heading headlong toward the proverbial tubes. And the most out-front, easily-seen culprits are the leftist, “progressive” politicians. But the greater evil is the Judicial System. Rulings like Kelo, opinions on the death penalty, and the increasingly tighter restraints being placed on local law enforcement in the name of “constitutionality”. I’ve placed that last word without capitalization because I tend to disagree that the Constitution was meant to be used in such dishonorable ways. We’ve become a society of laws, but the laws are trampling the people.

Judicial activism has led numerous voter initiatives to be for naught by overturning them as “unconstitutional”, despite any evidence proving that they indeed are. Then we have the scum of the Earth: Defense Attorneys. Theses are men and women that claim they are really just fighting for American civil rights, but are, in truth, fighting for their own notoriety, and having their names placed upon “ground-breaking” new legal precedent. But, is not the Constitution for us all? Are we, the citizens and victims, not to be allowed the right to not have these degenerates and societal detritus in our neighborhoods? Is the Government for the whole and not for the few who refuse to respect her and her children, the local, state, and federal statutes? If the government wants to restrict our access to fire arms, they sure as hell better start keeping our streets safe. And the more precedent that is set, the more restrictions are made on the average American, the more criminal daily life is becoming.

It was said that those that would give up freedom for safety will often find they have neither. Well, we have given up safety, thanks to these “pioneers” of law, with no security thrown in. The courts are finding new and exciting ways to describe away behavior and forgive egregious sins and degradation that half a century ago would have been rigidly punished. We haven’t asked that the police be given carte blanche, but we’ve also not asked them to have their hands tied. The manner in which police have to jump through hoop after hoop after hoop just to get admissible evidence against a suspect is appalling. And this all in the name of “protecting our civil rights.” By keeping the courts and truth in separate rooms? Juries rarely hear the truth. They hear what has actually been airtight enough to make it into a court proceeding, while the defense is allowed to present practically anything they want and directly attack the victim of crimes.

We are sitting with a revolver to our collective heads. Not sure if we have the empty chamber, or if the thud of the .38 slug against our temples will soon echo in the room. We need a new breed of lawyer, a new breed of patriots who work the law. We need a generation of attorneys that say, “ENOUGH!”, a judiciary that says ,“This is for the Legislature, and the people to decide.”, and a Bar as a whole that know that Precedent is written upon the paper, and not stone. The Constitution is not a Living document open to the interpretation of the times. You cannot make end runs around it, and you cannot bend it to your political view. It IS written in stone, with just enough room left on the tablets for Amendments ratified only by the methods described within itself. The Constitution is NOT now, nor will it ever be, a suicide pact. And those that thank that it is put that revolver to their own head and pull the trigger. Either that or wait for their clients, whom they’ve gotten off on a technicality, to.

A Very Special Absurd Spices

I am new to this blogging thing, as I’m sure my number of posts will testify to. Some days I don’t know what to write about, or what direction to take this thing in. I mean, there are literally blogs about everything. But, I knew in my heart of hearts that this sure as hell wasn’t going to be a LiveJournal. I’ll leave that to the angsty, over privileged teens who have everything, but still bitch that life is so unfair and dark for them.

The goal, of course, being what it is, has developed this blog into a bit of a rant factory. And you know what? I really like it that way. Daily, when I read about the state of the world, my country, someone else’s crap 3rd world barrel of graft, corruption, and the oh so fantastic socialist/Islamist masses; I nearly have an apoplexy trying to contain my rage. I’ve come to the conclusion that Earthquakes in these regions are just God shaking the hell out of these people in hopes that they’ll snap out of it.

That being said, now I can move on to some thank-yous to folk that have inspired or at least encouraged me to keep going. Firstly would be my good friend in Connecticut who continues to nag me to post. He’s my readership, mostly. Then there is Jimmy from The Conservative UAW Guy, who actually enjoys reading my diatribes whether they are coherent or not. Jimmy, I’ve called your doc to up your meds. Also, Peace Moonbeam of the Peace Moonbeam Chronicles for linking to my rather insignificant flyspeck of a blog. Her stuff is pretty damned good in the Satire arena, so check it out. Also, they would be Frank J. and team at IMAO, Scott Ott at Scrappleface and Buckley F. Williams at The Nose on Your Face.. As I’m a fan of Satire, the stuff they post is humorous, but links to the real impetus behind the satire, which helps me get angry enough to write a rant about how cock-eyed leftist perception is.

So, Thanks to you all, and to those who actually pop by to read this schlock! You’re the best! Tune in next week for more Absurd Spices!

*Test Pattern*

I try to be topical, and do my write-ups for posting when I’ve a full head of steam. Even with all the fodder being provided by the left and the muslims, I’m coming up sort. Suppose I’m choking on choice! But I have a semi-promise:

Barring the prevention of by rogue computers, guerilla software and insurgent servers; a new message, with content will be up tomorrow morning, AZ Time.

So, accept this apology, and remember that there will be a good old vitriolic rambling for ya tomorrow. Also, the carnival should be up is Spacemonkey got any volunteers. I’ll post on that later.

The Burkaed Truth

So we finally get a response from a muslim group that condemns the widespread violence. Well, at least that is what they’ve told us. The Ulama Council of clerics, in Afghanistan, has made a statement on radio and TV stating that the violence is defaming Islam. Well good for them. I’ll just go grab the salt shaker for this one. Yup, a grain of salt should just about do it.

As a non-muslim citizen of civilized Western Society, and more importantly, of the United States of America, I’m dubious. We’ve grown rather accustomed to the Arab/Persian/Insert Islamic people group here party line. We’ve started watching and listening to both sides of these “religious leaders’” mouths as they are ever so fond of talking out of both sides of them. The linked article mentions maybe two or three groups, out of the thousands of Islamic organizations, which are “speaking out” concerning this absurd, childish and unconscionable response to these Dutch cartoons. Just two or three. That’s about it folks. And they say that it’s all the radical groups’ fault for taking advantage of the furor.

Now, let’s take a moment to think this through. If you were raised from childhood worshipping (And no matter what burka you put on the truth, they are still worshipping) some man who claimed to be a prophet and built a religion, you’d be pretty committed, right? From the time you could read (Sorry girls, no reading for you!), you’ve been taught this religion, been made to practice it everyday, been told be religious leaders that the infidel is evil and subhuman, that the infidel must convert or die and basically had violence imbued in the religion that permeates your life. Then something like this happens, and all the years of violent programming come out. All the hate-filled messages from the religious leaders bursts forth, because, after all, we are merely the infidel and therefore subhuman and outside of “allah’s” favor. You are just doing what you were taught your whole life.

So maybe, just maybe, the issue is not the cartoons. Maybe the issue is not the “radical groups”. Maybe the issue is not the geo-political state of things. Maybe it’s not the infidel. Maybe, and follow with me here, the issue is Islam. Period. End of story. No sequel, no spin-offs. The issue just might be Islam itself. Teaching hatred for all things not Arab, for Islam is merely the cruel Arab culture peppered with “god” stuff to make it seem respectable, stating that the lives of non-muslims are worth much less than muslims. Stating that there is no law above allah’s, that democracy and the will of the people are evil, and the people shouldn’t be allowed to decide for themselves. Permeating every aspect of muslim life so there is no escape and no differing viewpoint. Giving permission to kill, nay a mandate to kill, anyone who is muslim that chooses a different faith. Maybe it’s Islam that is the problem.

So these “religious leaders” can decry he violence and uncultured Arab behavior all they want. It is the equivalent of putting a fingertip band-aid on a vivisection victim and sending the on their way. The Protestants, The Jews, The Catholics have all taken stock of the violence they perpetrated, and have considered the doctrinal issues that led there. They figured out how to live with the world, not convert it all to a cruel Roman/American/Israeli/German/English/etc. theocracy. It’s about time Islam stepped up to the plate, stopped acting like the poor, red-headed stepchild, and actually learn how to get on in this world. The issue isn’t Poverty. The issue isn’t Extremists. The issue isn’t the Western World and Culture. The problem, my ululating friends, is Islam. Own it, then fix it!

Islam: It's The Bomb or The Amazing Adventures Of Jihadis

Seething mad. My blood boils. My mind races to find logic where there is none. My mind scrambles to make sense of the mindless killings, burnings, kidnappings, etc. But nothing comes. Nothing but blind rage! That and the desire to respond in kind. To set ablaze that which they value. To make their compatriots live in fear. I speak, of course, of the muslim response to some goddamned cartoons!

I’ve been reading, in the past few days, about all the furor over the illustrations of Mohammed. The “religion of peace” is sure showing us uncultured, warmongering infidels just what it means to have culture and desire peace. They have burned an embassy, kidnapped foreigners, and issued effete and ineffective fatwa after fatwa, all for painting the dickless mole-covered pedophile that would start a religion of terrorism. This whole thing is over a cartoon. Or at least, a collection of cartoons.

Now there are some unflattering depictions of the epileptic, hallucinating jackass of Islam, but that really just seems like a little goes-around-comes-around to me. Arab media consistently depicts Jews and Christians in an immensely unfavorable light, but where are our torchings of mosques and shrines? Where is our response of random kidnappings of muslims visiting foreign countries? There is none, but goddamnit, there damn well should be! Instead of taking images like the “prophet” with a bomb in his turban as a satire and perhaps look inwardly at the shithole that Islam has become, they enforce the image by acting like violent, petulant little children.

Civilization may have started in the Middle East, but it left a long, long time ago. We have treated the adherents to Islam as regular citizens in our country, as have the Dutch and other European nations. And the thanks that are given in return are the angry rioting and destruction of said adopted country because of, and let me repeat this, A FEW GODDAMNED CARTOONS! So, let’s start revoking their equal status. Let all muslims become Dhimmi in our nations. One would ask, “Well, what about the moderate muslims?” To which I would say that we’d treat them just as the Germans were treated wen we were liberating Europe in WW II. They may not have been running the death camps, but their asses did nothing to stop them either. No muslim can claim innocence and peace on one hand, and receive literature and funding for their mosque from Saudi Arabia with the other.

This may seem an angry diatribe, and damnit it is! I would be offended by an unflattering depiction of The Lord, but I’d not start rioting, looting, burning, pillaging, or kidnapping. But this violent reaction and wanton destruction of their adopted lands, or of embassies that try to bring trade and an actual future to those countries, makes me mad enough to start grabbing for the Molotov cocktails. There is no excuse, there is no reason, and there is no forgiving the other muslims that don’t do shit to try and quell the extremism, though a careful study proves their whole religion as extremist.

So, no forgiveness for muslims. No more tolerance. They have often cried, falsely so, that we have declared war on Islam. Well, it’s about damned time that we did. Protest a mosque. Disrupt the 5 times a day prayer. Call a muslim to account for what the rest of his “brethren” are doing. It is time we well and truly declare war on Islam. We haven’t had a decent Crusade in a while, and they have already declared war on us and seek to enslave us to Sharia or send us to our eternal reward. It’s time to fight the fuck back. It’s time to make Militant Islam such a dangerous choice that no one dare follow that route again.

It is time to call in the chits that Islam owes for the acts of the past. Time to call in Munich. Time to call in Beirut. Time to call in Kobar Towers. Time to call in the U.S.S Cole. Time to call in The Pentagon. Time to call in the World Trade Center 1, 2 and 7. Time to call in Madrid. Time to call in London. Time to call in the hundreds of chits for Israel. No more Mister Nice Western World. It is time to officially declare War on the “religion of peace”. They declared it on us a long time ago.

The Way We Are. The Way They Aren't

I must offer apologies for my lack of posts last week. I know that there are a couple of you folks out there that check up on this site every now and then, and it is my fault that there haven’t been any updates for your consideration. I had a rather nasty sinus infection that made me less that enthusiastic about stringing together the fluid, yet somehow rambling prose of the political malcontent. But I’m feeling better and am back!

So the latest thing to chap my ass concerns, surprise of surprises, a wrong-headed view held by the Left concerning our troops in Iraq and in general. The impetus for this post was a rather obscene item in a rerun of Family Guy that I watched last night. The episode featured a Regatta in which, at the beginning of the race, a rather overt bash on our troops occurred. The announcer stated that he was welcoming all the parents who had children stationed in Iraq… waited a few moments… then laughed. Since this was at a Regatta chalk full of the uber rich, the connotation was that no sons or daughters of the affluent were fighting overseas.

So, this was just another knock from the Left against our troops. The message was that Bush is only sending the poor to fight and die, but the rich don’t have to. The News Flash for the Left is this: We Have A Volunteer Armed Forces! Of course that will go right over their heads, but had to be stated anyway. And let us observe and pick apart this assumption.

As it is well known by those who care to know; the Uber Rich generally are those filling the upper echelon, and even some of the rank and file of the Democratic Party. Ted Kennedy, George Soros, John Kerry, etc, etc. spring to mind. Within the affluent circles, so-called “progressive” thought rules the day. And, as we know, the Lefty “progressives” enjoy, bend, abuse and crap on the freedoms provided by our troops, but spit on the very idea of armed conflict and the military.

Those in the Middle to Lower classes tend to realize that our freedom comes with the price of the blood, sweat and tears of patriots. Thusly, they see military service as an honor and a privilege. Since these folk (most anyway) know the full price, they are more likely to sign up, or dare I say, volunteer, for the Armed Forces. Since, you know, it’s a volunteer organization.

So, the next time a leftist asshole tries to rain on your parade, or state that Bush sends only the poor to fight, remind them that their Billionaire Heroes kids don’t have the balls, the strength, the intelligence or the courage to fight for what this Country stands for. And just to add insult to injury, remind them that these boys are so very much morally superior to their puppet masters because they choose to fight for the moonbats and patriots alike, rather than leaving them to rot in their own devices and schemes.

The Men and Women of the United States Armed Forces have courage and know the meaning of the words Honor, Duty and Sacrifice. The Left cannot begin to understand these words as their tactics have shown. When faced with even the slightest opposition, they cry foul and slander, and yell and rail that their First Amendment Rights are being quashed. Then, in their next breath, they slander and malign those dedicated to preserving that right, even if it goes to some slimeball money man with cowardly progeny, so lacking of the moral fortitude and courage to actually fight for this country. The reason there are few Rich men and women in the armed forces? The pussified doctrine of the Left has made them the effete assholes and morally bankrupt lay-abouts to the point that they haven’t the guts or honor to fight for something. They’ve never had to before anyway. Their rich Leftist Mommies and Daddies have given them everything and made them into the ballbag sissies that they are.

So, Leftist Tosspots, remember a couple of things:

  1. The Armed Forces are Voluntary
  2. Most of your membership consists of the super rich and part of the 1% they say are fucking you over.
  3. Their children have no honor and thusly will never volunteer for the armed services.
  4. They will point out that Bush has sent few sons and daughters of the rich to fight.
  5. This is their fault for being cowards with no sense of duty, honor and patriotism, and raising their kids in the same vein.
  6. They will pull the wool over your eyes and obfuscate the facts by saying Bush favors the Rich when the truth is, we Middle and Lower classes have the Upper class beat by far and will defend their candy-asses from harm by joining the armed forces.

So, despite Abramoff, who, by the way, bribed on BOTH sides of the aisle, the Right will have the Moral high ground almost all the time. The Left surrendered it a long time ago for easy fixes and selling out to the lowest common denominator for votes. We may not be perfect, but we are more committed to this Nation and its goals of freedom and democracy than the Left has been for a LONG TIME. My Right-wing friends, the next time the Left states that Bush only sends the poor to die, ask them why Chelsey Clinton isn’t in the Air Force, or why George Soros’ brood, if anyone could stomach sleeping with the jackass, aren’t marching to a cadence called out in the Corps. The Left loves shucking stones though their palaces are glass.

But that’s just my $.02. I could be wrong.
