Making the Move

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I am officially bailing out of Blogger.

As of today, I will no longer be posting here. My posts can now be found at the new Exile From Hillary's Village.

The site is far from finished, but it works well enough. I still have to set up my Trophy Room before I go hunting trolls again, among other things.

To those of you who link to me, I would greatly appreciate it if you would change the link to reflect the new address:

Thanks all. See ya at the new spot!

Let's Make a Deal

Does somebody want to give me an example of negotiations ever stopping a war and averting more bloodshed?

I may not be a history major, but I know more than most. Let's take only the wars that America has been involved in for example.

  • The Revolution? Nope, had to defeat the British.
  • War of 1812? Nope, had to defeat the British. Again.
  • Civil War? Nope, had to defeat the Confederates.
  • Spanish-American war? Had to defeat them, too.
  • WW I? Defeated them.
  • WW II? Ditto.
  • Korea? Negotiated an armistice, but only because Korea and a billion Chinese were arrayed against us and we didn't commit completely. Technically, that war never ended and is still in cease-fire mode today. And how many have died in North Korea since then?
  • Vietnam? The firsy politically correct war. The only reason that we didn't crush the North Vietnamese (i.e. "defeated" them) was because our troops' hands were tied by the politicians. And 1 million dead Vietnamese, and the refugees created by rhe Communist takeover after we bailed out, will tell you that negotiating an end to the conflict certainly didn't avert more bloodshed.
  • Grenada? Not much of a war, but defeated them.
  • Gulf War? Stomped on them and defeated them.
  • Iraq war? Defeated the Iraqi army. In the process of defeating the leftovers and fanatics.
  • Does anyone see a trend here?

    These wars were between secular governments, and they only negotiated after one side was defeated (there's that "D" word again!). What makes the Left think that there's the slightest chance that negotiations would work when dealing with absolute religious fanatics who haven't been defeated yet?

    As usual, they haven't thought about it. It just sounds right, so it has to be right. Right?

    Only if you're an emotional child with no ability to actually think.

    Stop Being a Pain!

    What the hell is wrong with these damned Jews? Why won't they just go quietly and let themselves be exterminated? After all, they went quietly for Hitler! Why do they have to be so belligerent now?

    Especially when you consider that the Muslims have left-wing minority/victim status. Oh, I know that there are 500 million Muslims against 6 million Jews in the Mideast, but it's just plain racism! They let themselves be killed by the millions when it was a white, European guy who was killing them, but when it's a "person of color" like the Muslims, they actually fight back!

    Besides, as long as we on the Left believe in your cause, you can be a majority and still be a minority/victim group. Just ask the women in America.

    That is truly what the Left believes should happen. Jaques Chirac, Vladimir Purin, the vast majority of the UN and all of the rest of the Left think that it's downright rude of the Jews to actually defend themselves! They're hurting the self-esteem of the Muslims, for Allah's sake!

    After all, I'm sure that these peace-loving Muslims don't really mean it when they say that they want to "wipe the Jews off the face of the earth", or "annihilate The Zionists" It's just rhetoric!

    (I actually heard not one, but two liberals say that on the radio after I wrote that! They don't believe anyone could possibly be that evil. Well, except for Conservatives.)

    Not only do the Jews have tha audacity to be Jewish, but they blatantly live in a Democracy! And wherever there is a Democracy, there is that much less of a chance for their Communist Utopia. And if Israel kicks Hezbollah and Syria out of Lebanon. well, there's another Democracy!

    Not to mention the one that's budding next door in Iraq! This Democracy thing is getting out of hand! It's no wonder the Left is in such a panic.

    So what are the Israelis supposed to do? Why, sit down and negotiate, of course. Well, here's a sample of what the negotiations will be like:

    Muqtar: "If you promise to cease all resistance and commit suicide, we will stop trying to kill you."

    Moshe: "That is not acceptable."

    Muqtar: "Death to the Jew!!! Death to the infidel!!! Death, death, death!!!"

    What does Israel have to lose? Only their very existence.

    A Little Help

    We need to give them whatever help is necessary to finally rid their country of Hezbollah and Syrian influence for good.

    Trying to defuse the violence, which began when Hezbollah captured two Israeli soldiers and killed eight others in a cross-border raid, Lebanon's prime minister indicated he might send his army to take control of southern Lebanon from Hezbollah — a move that might risk civil war.


    The Western-backed prime minister, criticizing both Israel and Hezbollah, also pledged to reassert government authority over all Lebanese territory, suggesting his government might deploy the Lebanese army in the south, which Hezbollah effectively controls.

    Live From Beirut

    This is kind of fascinating. It's a blow-by-blow account of what's happening in Lebanon from a person in Beirut (who's not real happy about what Hizbollah is doing).

    What strikes me are the repeated statements that people over there are celebrating and congratulating each other. They're getting the living Hell beaten out of them, with worse to come, and they're too stupid to realize what is coming their way.

    Is it possible for such a large part of an entire culture to be stupid and suicidal?

    Oh, wait. We have the Left, don't we?

    Thanks, Israel

    Israel could be doing our efforts in Iraq a huge favor.

    If Syria's government is preoccupied with the little problem that they may be looking at their own demise, they may be less likely to help the ""Religion of Pieces" terrorists sneaking into Iraq across their border to fight us and the Iraqis.

    And if the pig terrorists think that they may have a chance to kill Jews, which is even better than killing Americans in their eyes, they might just want to hang around Syria and wait for the attack instead of going to Iraq.

    And if Syria is taken out completely as a base for terrorists, the load on us and the Iraqis is lessened even more, and permanently.

    Not only has supporting Israel been the right thing to do all these years, but it may pay off rather nicely in this case.

    Feeling Lonely?

    Has anyone looked at a map of the Mideast? If Lebanon is taken out of the picture, Syria has, quite literally, no friends on any of its borders. At least none friendly enough to help them, I'd bet.

    Turkey to the North, Jordan to the south. Both are pretty moderate for Muslim countries, and I doubt that they're very happy about Syria's part in plunging the mideast into this war by suppporting Hezbollah.

    I doubt that they're fans of Israel, but I think that keeping their ties to The United States is more important to them than is helping Syria. I'd bet that they sit this one out.

    Then, of course, they have Iraq to their east, with 130,000 well-armed American soldiers sitting there. I'm sure that we could spare a couple platoons to send over there if the need arose.

    And if Lebanon is denied to them, they no longer have a direct link to Israel's border. Blockade their coast and they are cut off completely.

    They're screwed.


    You'd be nervous, too, if you just found out that Israel already considers you dead.

    Isn't This Obvious?

    I have some free advice for the Palestinians, and others who have vowed to destroy Israel, who whine when their women and children are killed because Israel is targeting the terrorists in their midst:


    If, as is so often stated, these terrorists are such a small percentage of the population, you vastly outnumber them and can keep them away. If you really want to.

    Don't allow them in your country. Don't allow them in your city. Don't allow them in your neighborhood. And certainly don't let them use your house for their meetings, which is what happened in the last Israeli attack. If your women and children die because you won't keep them away, don't whine. You get what you deserve.

    If you ask nicely and they won't stay away, kill them. You can always say that they were defiling the Muslim religion. If that's really what you believe.

    These people are intentionally targeting and killing innocent Israeli citizens. What do you expect Israel to do? Just let these terrorists in your midst comtinue killing them with no repercussions? Do you expect them to not get pissed-off and hunt these animals down?

    And when the Israeli's do find and kill these pigs, if they are not in your midst, your women and children won't be harmed, will they?

    Unless, of course, you agree with the terrorists.

    Pop Quiz

    What group of people am I describing?
  • They believe completely that they are being oppressed by the United States.
  • They hate the Western capitalist system.
  • They despise Israel.
  • They hate America and everything that it stands for.
  • Suicide is a legitimate option in their view.
  • They are completely paranoid and prone to believing conspracy theories.
  • They have no qualms about killing the innocent.
  • They are actively working to destroy Christianity.
  • They are absolutely ruthless to those who have a different ideology.
  • Who am I describing?

    Why, Muslim terrorists, of course.

    Oh, wait. It might have been...

    Left-wing liberals.

    Re-read that list and see if you can tell the difference.

    Here it Comes

    Keep an eye on the Mideast this weekend.

    Syria and Lebanon are about to be crushed.

    RIP Syd

    We lost one of the greatest (and oddest) minds of Rock music today.

    Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd has passed away. His descent into insanity helped created some of the most amazing music ever written.

    When you rise your eyes catch up with the sun but it's sinking.

    Racing around to come up behind you again.

    The sun is the same, in a relative way, but you're older.

    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

    Religion Would Be OK, If It Didn't Tell Me What to Do

    Back in the late 1960's and early 70's there were a whole bunch of hippies singing about God.

    George Harrison was singing about "My Sweet Lord" (although somehow Hare Krishna got mixed in with the Lord part).

    Norman Greenbaum was singing about the "Spirit in the Sky" (that is, apparently, Norman's own website).

    If you know anything about the music of that time, I'm sure that you can think of many more.

    Why were they singing about religion? Because, quite frankly, humans yearn for things to make sense, to have a purpose. Thus, God.

    Back then, most of them didn't realize that they were being manipulated by the Communists, and so they tried to make "the God thing" work. The Leftist hippies explored religion in all of it's facets, trying to reconcile their desire for a "religious experience" with their lifestyle. And, as all Leftists eventually find out, it can't be done.

    They tried Buddhism, they tried Taoism, they tried Hinduism, they tried Islam, they tried Animism...they even tried (gasp) Christianity.

    But they eventually had to give up the search because religion always tells you how to live your life, and those on the Left can't stand that. Hell (pun intended), even Satanism tells you how to live your life!

    Religion speaks of right and wrong. It speaks of self-control and giving up your self-will. It speaks of losing your self-centeredness and letting God (or Gods) run your life. It speaks of humility. It speaks of a power greater than yourself. It speaks of doing for others with no expectation of reward in any form, including feeling good about oneself (or, at least, Christianity does) .

    None of which can exist in the childish, selfish world of the Left.

    Don't you understand? They were told for their entire childhood what to do! That wasn't fair! And now that they (think that they) are adults, nobody will tell them what to do ever again! They don't have to listen to anybody!

    Remember: these people are, emotionally, children. They never grew up.

    And so, since the early '70's, you have their rejection of all religions. They may seem to be sympathetic towards, say, Islam. But if Islam were the majority religion in this country, they'd hate that, too. At least until a few of them had their heads sawed off.

    The younger Leftists of today know nothing of this. They've just been told by those that have come before them that religion is evil (how's that for an oxymoron?). They've never really thought about 'why'. Like all good Lefties, they just believe what they're told.

    To do otherwise would get them kicked out of the collective. It may be a collective of misfits, but it's better than being alone.

    Same as it Ever Was...

    Consider the Left of today.

    The absolute, vicious hatred of those who disgree with them.

    Their paranoia and conspiracy-theories.

    Their complete obsession with power at all costs.

    Their easy willingness to destroy their ideological opponents; personally, if not (yet) physically.

    Does any of that sound familiar? Draw it all out to it's logical conclusion, and you have Stalin's Soviet Union.

    Read some of the Left-wing blogs and tell me if you think these people are any different than the ones who murdered tens-of-millions of their fellow countrymen for no other reason than they threatened their power or disagreed with them.

    There is only one difference, and that is the fact that those on the Left today are absolutely gutless. And that is the one thing that is saving us from an actual civil-war in this country. They are vicious only when there is absolutely no physical threat to them. Courage to them is going on a talk-show in front of millions of people and whining about "Bush's" infringement of their free speech (and not seeing how stupid that is).

    If they thought that they could win an actual physical conflict, they wouldn't hesitiate.

    Gimme a Break

    I'm working on the new website. It's coming along nicely.

    It's all black & white. There are some gray areas, but not in a philospohical sense.

    Q: How do you sell a deaf man a chicken?

    Good Eeevening!

    How long do you think it'll take before the Left comes up with a conspiracy-theory that Ken Lay staged his own death to avoid serving jail time?

    Hell, I guarantee you that it's happened already.

    Like Karl Rove, Ken Lay is a vampire to the Left. Nothing so ordinary as a heart-attack could take this man out. It's just too much of a coincidence!

    Wait and see.

    Oooh, That's Bad.

    Nurse: Doctor, there's a man in the waiting room who thinks he's invisible.

    Doctor: Tell him that I can't see him now.

    Just Too Busy

    I'm stuck here at the cabin in the 'Great North Woods', sitting on the porch with my feet up, nice breeze coming through the woods, reading a good book (The Journals of Ayn Rand), thinking of throwing some steaks on the grill...

    Sorry. Just too busy to blog right now. Maybe tomorrow.
