"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."--C.S. Lewis

:: Friday, September 29, 2006 ::"Since 1948, the number of Muslims killed by the Americans and Israelis combined is still less than the number killed by the French. And the number of Muslims killed by the French, Israelis, and Americans combined is still less than the number killed by the Soviets/Russians. And the number of Muslims killed by the Soviets, Russians, French, Israelis, and Americans, combined, is still about 1/3 of the number of Muslims who have been killed by Muslim states."
Intelligence on Bush's side [?!]:"For those who say the war in Iraq has spread terrorism, surely the October 2001 invasion of the terrorists' home base, Afghanistan, had already done that. The 2002 bombings in Bali happened before Iraq, as did the attack on the USS Cole in 2000 and many other terrorist incidents.
Frenchy's finally got a clue:"You will never feel secure on this earth. One billion, three hundred thousand Muslims are ready to kill you."

Here's an important message from the Mexican Department of Immigration.:: Thursday, September 28, 2006 ::
Every American should see this video of the aftermath of a homicide bus-bombing. These are the only rules Islamofascists play by and they're gunning for you Yankee: WARNING-VERY GRAPHIC.
Kieth Olberman confirms every stereotype I've ever held about talking heads. For the most part, they're pathetic clowns.:: Friday, September 22, 2006 ::
Well whattaya know, an honest MSM journalist: Thomas Edsall, Unplugged via Hugh Hewitt. [liberal to conservative ratio in MSM 25:1 Democrat!? Who knew?]
Wow. The Village Voice (?!) does a nice job with Sharia Law under Ahmedinejad: "Stoning Women to Death":: Thursday, September 21, 2006 ::
I can't believe we can put a human-being on the frickin' moon but we still don't have home-delivery White Castles. Hmmmfph
Disappointing note: Malalai Joya, Afghanistan's youngest MP lays it on the line and I cannot say that I disagree much with her assessment: The US is screwing up.
As if national polls weren't bad enough, MSM is now conducting "World Polls", just another drum-beat in their relentless "hate America" symphony. But there is a poll they'll never do because they know the answer and this poll has only one question: Given the choice, [and a free plane-ticket and guaranteed citizenship] would you prefer to live in a) the United States of America or b) the country you presently reside in? To my knowledge, nobody's trying to sneak across the border to get into Venezuela [or Iran, or North Korea, or Syria, or Russia, or Cuba...]
Many intelligent people believe Western Europe is on the edge of the cultural abyss. But instead of an emerging 21st century Churchill the world gets a vichy-era weasle like Jacques Chirac.
Wow. Kim Jong Il just gave Ahmendinejad some fancy new toys to play with. Wonder if he'll share them with his other whack-job, dictator buddies Chavez and Castro?
"On a personal note, speaking for my family (Cubans and Puerto Ricans) I have to say that Venezuelans are among our favorite people in the world. We are in a sense part of the same cultural nation, which I call the "salsa jurisdiction." We speak the same Caribbean Spanish, we admire each other's music and generally get along great. The day Chavez falls, the streets of Caracas will turn into the biggest fiesta of our times, and I will be right there."

Roger Simon on the state of the UN::: Tuesday, September 19, 2006 ::"As I have written numerous times on this blog, I am a supporter of the UN. (That is why I was so outraged by Oil-for-Food.) But now I wonder if it's salvageable as do, no doubt, many Americans whose tax dollars provide the primary support for what looks increasingly like a social club for sociopaths (Chavez, Ahmadinejad) and kleptocrats (Chirac, Kofi and the whole Oil-for-Food crowd.) What started out as a great liberal idea has turned into an almost perfectly reactionary institution - a common metamorphosis, alas. And after this change, as is also often common, an entirely new class has risen up to protect the institution and its perquisites. The question confronting us now is how to break this pattern."
Er, "Senator" Robert Horton and "President" Joseph Charles have a very important message for you. Just go watch it.:: Monday, September 18, 2006 ::
