Democratic Activist & Chickenhawk
Many rather dumb liberals have decided that they are so smart that they could frame an argument in a manner that precludes the other side from even positing an argument. They state that if one is not in the military then one could not argue for any use of the military. Anybody with a brain and a reasonable education would know that the converse would also hold, if one is not in the military then one could not argue against military action because one would not have the necessary background to make the decision. Of course they are making the charge that anyone who advocates military action should take up arms and fight, as if that was the only action that one could do to support a nation at war. They also ignore the fact that in our democracy the military is controlled by civilians; if it were otherwise (as they suggest that it must be!) those very same fruitcakes would be going utterly bonkers, as would an overwhelming majority of conservatives.

What Would the Left Do?
What would a lefty blogger do with the hysterical pictures above? A couple of weeks ago I was driving up the Edens Expressway when I came across the woman pictured above. She had part of her car dragging behind her and it was attached to a bumper that held a sticker for last fall's (and a current) Democratic candidate for Congress in the Illinois 10th Congressional District, Dan Seals. Well if the shoe was on the other foot and the car had a bumper sticker for 10th District Congressman Mark Kirk (R-IL) you can bet that those photos wouldn't have languished inside of an iphone but rather they would have been trotted out to show how heartless, stupid and yes dangerous those evil Republicans are. I did no such thing concerning those funny photos, Dan Seals and the Democratic Party because it would have been stupid.
Well none other than Illinois 10th Congressional District Democratic blogger and Dan Seals supporter Ellen Beth Gill, the blogger at Ellen's Illinois Tenth Congressional District Blog that I wrote about here, has written a post concerning a woman who allegedly drove through a stop sign "in the city" (I would presume Chicago) while using her Blackberry-type device. Ellen has blamed the incident (that occurred "in the city") on President George Bush and the North Shore Congressman Kirk. This has got to be one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever read. I must ask, does this nonsense represent the left side of the blog world? I must also note that she has no photos of that neo-con outrage "in the city."
One would think that a resident of one of Chicago's suburbs would know that the residents of the city of Chicago are overwhelmingly Democratic and the women are even more so. Especially if said suburbanite is part of * the local suburban Democratic Party. Frankly, if the event described actually occurred the driver was likely one of Ellen's compatriots who was driving-while-blackberrying "in the city". Maybe it was even a lady on an iphone reading one of Ellen's posts.
*It is well worth noting that the link for "part of" is to the Illinois 10th Democratic Organization. When I was a child I did a lot of work for Democrats in that area for the New Trier Democratic Organization (NTDO),some of it for the Mikva campaigns mentioned on the 10th site and that my late father was once a force in the NTDO; along with the late yachtsman Lynn Williams. I cannot speak for Mr. Williams but my father recognized the problems that his party has been having with the far left long ago and would have appalled that the 10th District Organization has become so closely aligned with the Daily Kos types and their yearly convention. The Yealrly Kos will be the same weekend as Lollapalooza, go figure.
Big Hat Tip to Publia of the Wilmette blog who noted the ridiculous post in the comments section of my original post on Ellen's Tenth.
Last night I incorrectly wrote that I had worked for the IL 10th Democratic Organization and have since corrected the post.
Many thanks to the wonderful Dr. Sanity and her Carnival of Insanities for inclusion again this week. Go read her blog!
Update: Thank you Team America! You are right that link was incorrect, I thought that I doulble checked it after posting; I blame Dick Cheney! The correct link is now posted, thanks again.

Time Magazine Gets "News" From La Rouche
La Rouche people in Chicago
Last week I ran across some folks involved with the despicable Lyndon La Rouche passing out their propaganda at the Fullerton El stop (Red, Brown & Purple Lines) in Chicago. As always I had to get their pamphlet to see what nonsense that group is peddling this year. Well Mr. La Rouche has become a big fan of Vlad Putin, the tyrannical former chief of the Soviet secret police (KGB) and Mr. La Rouche believes that the US must align itself with the dictator in order to salvage anything for our nation.
Just one week later the Gateway Pundit has the story of how Time Magazine, once a decent publication, has now done La Rouche one better. In this article they use an image of a Russian helicopter that "saves" the US from Iraq. Thank you Time Magazine for reminding why I stopped reading your publication decades ago.
The La Rouche fool pictured above claimed that Mr. La Rouche's conviction for selling unregistered securities was the fault of, are you ready - Bush. The old man of course. Apparently those geniuses believe that the former President Bush forced the La Rouche group to market securities that were not registered. I had a good laugh at their expense and belittled the guy some more before he stated that I must support "the evil Dick!" After a few more guffaws and figuring that the guy was not talking about Dick Nixon I told him that not only do I not support "the evil Dick whatever that is, I'm not even gay." Liberal protestations aside they are seemingly very interested in the sex lives of others. Well Mr. Pythagoras told me that the "evil Dick' is none other than Vice President Richard Cheney.
So Time Magazine has now sunk so low that it's bs political rhetoric matches that of the looniest of the loons; my question is, why didn't the Daily Kos beat them to the punch?
Note, the photo above was taken on my IPhone.

Bridge to Nowhere Finds a Supporter
Strangely this single supporter is a Democrat. Maybe not all that surprising after reading her blog, Ellen's Illinois Tenth Congressional District Blog (succinctness is not a strong point over there) has been maintained by attorney Ellen Beth Gill who was a representative to the 2004 Democratic Convention from the IL 10th. Ms. Gill (if I may call her that) is currently blaming her, um, nemesis Congressman Mark Kirk, the Republican who currently represents the IL. 10th. Ms Gill has something to blame on Mr. Kirk nearly every day (sort of pathetic but hey it's her life) and last weekend she has resurrected a post from June '06 in order to blame the Republicans in general and Mark Kirk specifically for the, ahem, infrastructure problems of South East Alaska. Ms. Gill was helpful in pointing out the post from last year as it is hysterical; the post is titled "Imagine, no way to get to O'Hare".
Comparing the air field in Ketchikan, Alaska to one of the world's busiest airports is utterly inane but a few peeks at her comment sections show that she knows her readership, very well. On Sunday Ms. Gill blamed Mr. Kirk for helping to defund a bridge for 20 people a day but is now very happy that our nation may, in the end, spend millions of dollars to save time for a few Alaskans and a few wealthy tourists.
As a friendly note to Ms. Gill; O'Hare is a serious piece of infrastructure that affects millions of people in the tri-state area and around the nation; and I'm not even talking about the air travelers. To see an example of O'Hare's importance to the non-traveller Ms. Gill and her cohorts may want to take a drive along the southern boundary of O'Hare Airport. Drive down Irving Park Road west of Narraganset and take a look (to the north) at the traffic coming out of the O'Hare shipping terminal. For some further education they should trail those trucks that leave O'Hare and follow them down to the Joliet area, a booming trans-shipment are for the entire Midwest. It could be an educational field trip of sorts. Then they could try the same excercise in Ketchikan, the amount of industry that is reliant on airtransport is underwhelming and it is hard to imagine the industry that would rush to take advantage of easier access to the Ketchikam airport other than tourism. I guess that somebody has to stick up for the wealthy fishermen of the 10th district and their desire to catch (non Lake Michigan) salmon and Ms. Gill fits the bill.
If it matters I attended Joseph Sears School and New Trier East High School with Mark Kirk.

Nobel Bimbo Williams - "Whoops I Did It Again!"
Irish Nobel Peace Prize Winner Supports Fascists
If you cannot even rhetorically stand up for the freedom and liberties of others, you are in fact supporting the fascists of the world and should reasonably be considered a fascist yourself. If you are supporting the fascists of the world in order to regain power in the United States, you are a fascist. If you state your desire to murder the man standing up for the oppressed of this world, even if you desire to murder in a "nonviolent" manner, you are a fascist. If you cheer for a woman who would murder the man standing against fascists, you are a fascist. The only reasonable defense that those Dallas socialites have is that they were intoxicated on hairspray.

Update: It appears that she has previously vocalized her fascistic, murderous fantasies.

If the Jews Can Get Along With the muslims...
"The Jews seem neither to respect God nor his creation. Their own holy books contain the curse of God brought upon them by their prophets on account of their disobedience to Him and mischief in the earth. We have seen the disrespect for religion displayed by those who consider themselves to be 'God's chosen people.'"
As Johnson points out in this column all that the midievil muslim has done was to take crap straight out of their, ahem, "good" or, ahem "holy" book, the koran, "may god flush it."

I Left My Heart in San Fascistco
I have some friends (usually only acquaintances) who are communists of vying degrees and one of my favorite ways to needle (belittle?) them is to inform those seemingly poorly educated (having often attended very good schools) folks that if the commies ever take over and people like me don't get to them first that they will welcome their heroes with a hearty "comrades, I've been waiting for you" in some language other than English and that their heroes will promptly shoot their asses dead.

This Should Piss the Democrats Off
Democratic whiners like Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wi) failed to understand the technology that allows anybody to forward calls from a telephone in the US to any telephone in the world; in that situation the "human rights" being defended are those of a telephone that just happens to be in the US. On the subject of Al Gore and the NSA I wrote in Some Casino is Missing Its Greeter that: "just a few weeks ago Al claimed to have found some sort of controlling legal authority (Finally!) involving the NSA tapping situation. As far as I could figure, Al found the same “controlling legal authority” that he found ten tears ago; Al Gore."

Gore Enlists Fascist for Live Earth Concert!
I once saw Mr. Islam when he was Cat and he was alright I guess; I went with a date who loved his music but I have never had the urge to see him again. I did however notice Mr. Islam during the summer of 2001 when the Financial Times had a short piece on the Catster's demand that Rushdie be killed for insulting islam in one of the many books that Mr. Rushdie has written. The FT piece cracked me up; let me put it this way, if you are a member of a religion that allows washed up pop stars to issue religious death edicts then you may want to rethink the whole religion thing. Hello Al? Islam is calling.
So Al Gore has now enlisted the help of a washed up former top-40 pop star who has turned to threatening other artists, all in order for Al to make more money. Al, how much is enough? Mr. Gore is now so hard up for cash and attention that he is outwardly tied to hateful islamic jihad. Nice going Al. Mr. Gore's wife Tipper is a noted rock fan who once played drums in a band and has long been friendly with Mickey Hart, the drummer for the former Grateful Dead. Before a show at RFK ('94?) the Gores hosted the members of the Grateful Dead at the Vice-President's residence and Tipper took a wild, secret service free motorcycle ride to the concert on the back of Mickey's bike.
I had to add that antidote to point out that the Gore family is not a geek-fest when it comes to rock and roll. Al must know that the Catster is a scumbag jihadist; what the hell does Tipper think of this? Is the entire Gore family in on this anti-western jihad nonsense? Does Al Gore III even know what's going on? On the subject of Al III I will leave the drug bust to others but I must say that anybody who drives a Prius at 100 mph on public roads should be in prison.
