A Rose is a Rose ... .

US hands over six F-16
fighter jets to Taliban

A good start

GOP majority in House will
push to end 'birthright citizenship'

(to the children of illegal immigrants who are born in the United States.)

"I don't like it," said Chad Silva, statewide policy analyst for the Latino Coalition for a Healthy California. "It's been something that's been a part of America for a very long time. … For us, it sort of flies in the face of what America is about."

I'm sure it does Amigo.  Here's further food for thought - "LOOK WHO'S 'NATIVIST' NOW!"

Condom Cunumdrum

Pope Benedict says condom
use is OK for male prostitutes

But,  what of rubbers with rubbers?

Benedict said that for male prostitutes — for whom contraception isn't a central issue — condoms are not a moral solution. But he said they could be justified "in the intention of reducing the risk of infection.'' [NPR]
If you're a Catholic male, follow me here.  At the crux of all this is the dictum that "sewing one's seed [masturbating] on barren rock" is a mortal sin against God's grand design.  If it's justified ["could be ... risk of infection" opens that  door] for male prostitutes to use a condom with men, then it should be okay for a teen-age boy to use one with the Sears lingerie pages, which in effect says that masturbation is okay.  Holy Crap! I'm going to heaven!  Is there a theologian in the house?

Looks like we have to kill everybody

Fortune Cookie Message

They further suggest the missile was fired from a submerged Chinese nuclear submarine off America's coast, and point out that the timing of the alleged Chinese missile shot coincided with an increasing confrontation between the U.S. and China, and was likely meant to send a message to Washington.  - ['Muted response' was decision 'made by the president himself']

Internet in Gummint Hands

Stuff on the slippery slope
What a great idea - Eric Holder can shut down the internet for 'cause'
On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a bill that would give Attorney General Eric Holder  the right to shut down websites with a court order if copyright infringement is deemed “central to the activity” of the site — regardless if the website has actually committed a crime.

This idea needs shooting down ASAP.


Today's seemingly random
selection from the wayback
  Since 1991, the aerospace industry has divided its political contributions equally between Democrats and Republicans. In the same period, however, Loral and Hughes tilted toward the Democratic Party, giving $2.5 million to Democratic candidates and causes and $1 million to the Republicans.

[Clinton] Administration officials say the contributions played no role in the decisions to permit China to launch U.S. satellites.


Snow White's Advice

Advice To Young Girls From A Cartoon Princess:

If you want to waste the next hour or so like I just did ...

LaHood: Pull his plug

Hypothesis #1
Hypothesis #1:  Nov. 5th 2008 Post Election Meeting of Obama and his Direktorate

Obama: Ha Ha Ha comrades!  In a single stroke we have complete control, but that's not good enough.  I want to rub this in.  Compile for me a list of the craziest, most arrogant, but compliant useful idiots in the movement.  I'm going to name them to my cabinet

Secretary of Transportation LaHood: We’re looking into technology to disable cell phones in vehicles

“Am I on a rampage,” said LaHood, who has made distracted driving a top priority of his tenure, in February 2010. “Yes, I am, and why shouldn’t I be?”

I can't think of another explanation.

Swiss Buttocks v. Muslim Headscarfed Hags

Swiss "anti-immigration" ad:
What We Have-What We'll Get

Euro Heads Explode

In advance of a coming referendum, the antis came up with this campaign ad which offers (rollover) a choice of sweet Swiss buttocks on Lake Z├╝rich beaches, or  headscarf-wearing Muslim women bathing in filthy water.  A bit over the top, but I'm laughing (actual nose bubbles)  at the whole idea; if you're not - I guess our first date would be a bust.

Anyway, the referendum is not anti-immigration, as I first imagined; it's to decide whether foreigners who have been found guilty of murder, rape, drugs trafficking and other serious offenses should be deported.  I wonder if the Swiss system allows for an Eric Holder and activist judges to "moot the vote" should this common sense proposition pass?
