It seems the rhetorical question, after you've just insulted her, " I guess a roll in the hay is out of the question?" may not be all that silly.  [Study: Feelings Of Disgust In Women Diminished By Sexual Arousal]

Christopher Stevens Feeds the Crocodile



Winston Churchill once said, “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile hoping it will eat him last.” On September 11, Christopher Stevens, a career diplomat, became one of the first Americans in Libya to feed the crocodile of Ansar Al-Sharia and learned too late that while appeasers may hope to be eaten last, they are often eaten first.

Christopher Stevens was a Middle Eastern diplomat who typified the new breed going from the University of Berkeley and the Peace Corps to desks in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Syria. He taught English to Moroccan children in the Peace Corps and helped Palestinian Arabs in the East Jerusalem Consulate, which has a firm policy of pretending that Israel does not exist.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said of Christopher Stevens that he “made other people’s hopes his own” and that may serve as a fitting eulogy both for Stevens and for the disastrous foreign policy of making “other people’s hopes” our own that brought on the Arab Spring.

Stevens, like Clinton and Obama, made the hopes of Islamists his own and they repaid him for it, just as Afghans repaid America for supporting them against the Soviet Union, as Lebanon and Somalia repaid America’s peacekeeping efforts by killing American troops and on down the litany of gratitude in bombs and bullets that have come America’s way from the Muslim world.

I think we can all agree on this.  There is not one—NONE— Obama appointee to any office who would not be instantly terminated, if not arrested,  by Ronald Reagan on his first day in office.  They are at best pasty-faced idealists; at worst, anti-American Obamunists. 

That said, Reagan would agree that nobody can attack them on foreign soil without getting a  Gaddafi comeuppance, i.e., a visit from American fighter bombers.   That even includes Hillary, who, if she is to be assaulted (and pray that never happens of course), it has to be at the hands of someone in, say, Omaha. 

How has this  administration responded?  Harassed the dim-witted a-hole who produced a truly lousy movie, which trailer was maybe seen by 20 people, and  which supposedly enraged the always enraged lunatic Muslum crowd. To them Obama apologized.

Harrison Bergeron - every 5 years


Friday, October 12, 2007

Mother Superior was leaving for a meeting this morning.  I said, "Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize."  She said two words, and left

"Harrison Bergeron"

Jump to Now.

My son had to read this and answer homework questions to it. It's right out of an Atlas Shrugged mind, but I'll be damned if I can't see this happening by 2081...


THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Res Ipsa LoquitorNobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.

Some things about living still weren't quite right, though. April for instance, still drove people crazy by not being springtime. And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron's fourteen-year-old son, Harrison, away.

It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn't think about it very hard. Hazel had a perfectly average intelligence, which meant she couldn't think about anything except in short bursts. And George, while his intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap radio in his ear. He was required by law to wear it at all times. It was tuned to a government transmitter. Every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair advantage of their brains.

George and Hazel were watching television. There were tears on Hazel's cheeks, but she'd forgotten for the moment what they were about.

On the television screen were ballerinas.

A buzzer sounded in George's head. His thoughts fled in panic, like bandits from a burglar alarm.

"That was a real pretty dance, that dance they just did," said Hazel.

"Huh" said George.

"That dance-it was nice," said Hazel. 

You can watch the loosely adapted full movie here, or read it here, or read some of it, and do the homework here.  Then you decide (if you haven't already).

Wisconsin Judge Trumps Election


Bad Judges
It's by now an old story.  Citizens vote into law something left-Democrats don't agree with, so they do what?  That's right.

Wis. judge strikes down law limiting union rights

A judge struck down Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's law that repealed most collective bargaining rights for public employees Friday, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The deeply controversial law revoked nearly all collective bargaining rights from most workers and has been in effect for more than a year.

NPR reports that the original law signed by Walker in February sparked massive protests and even caused all 14 Democratic lawmakers to flee the state to Illinois in a failed attempt to stop its passage.

The Governor's staunch support of the law was partially responsible for the unsuccessful attempt at recalling him earlier this yea

Everyone knows that there's really only one solution anymore, but it's a Sophie's Choice.  Do we save the country from judicial tyranny with the noose—by  sacrificing our tradition of making things work without resorting to violent third world solutions?

 Make that Hobson's choice.
