"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

Rumsfeld's parting observation; a "gathering storm"::: Wednesday, December 06, 2006 ::There are people who have written that this administration is a victim of its success, due to the fact that there hasn't been another attack inside the United States. I remember shortly after Sept. 11, I met with the Sultan of Oman in a tent. It must have been 150 degrees. We were perspiring through every piece of clothing we had on. He said this terrible thing that's happened might be a blessing in disguise. It may be the thing that will wake up the world to the danger these extremists pose, before those people get their hands on chemical or biological or nuclear weapons where they could kill many multiples of what they were able to kill on Sept. 11.
I feel sorry for these people. They've got American liberals and the global media to thank for their future that now looks very bleak indeed.

Researchers discover women talk three times more than men. Greg Gutfeld observes: "What the research doesn't make clear: whether women use more words than men, or just repeat the same ones over and over and over again."
Looks like "The Flying Imams" were [surprise] up to no good after all. Hope someone remembered to thank "Pauline" and the "normal" Muslims that apparently assisted the flight crew on U.S. Airways flight 300. And kudos to U.S. Air for not caving in with a bunch of multi-culti PC backsliding. I got a feeling we're gonna be seeing a lot more of this kind of sh*t in the future.:: Friday, December 01, 2006 ::
