In Bono We Trust!

First, the Methodists are appealing for "worshippers" by abandoning the Gospel of Jesus , rplacing it with a philosophy of multiculturalism. Now the Episcopalians are rejecting the Word of God as a draw for searchers of truth and offering U-2 as an alternative in order to attract younger new-comers. The minister actually passes ear-plugs out to those who request them!

Please, if you are rolling on the floor laughing at this foolishness, let me know!


A Day at the Ozark Folk Festival!

What a day! Music, games, onion-blossoms, and lemonade! Fiddles, and fiddlers. Two-steps and jigs. Go-carts and hoops and paddles. Hillbillies and city-folk all joined together in a celebration of Ozark culture this weekend in Mountain View, Arkansas, home of the Ozark Folk Center.

My family enjoyed the festivities, greatly, as did everyone else who converged on this small mountain village over Easter weekend. I got to sign a petition for an independent hopeful for the Arkansas governor's race. My kids happily did the rock-climbing thingy. Our family took our frustrations out on each other on the go-cart track in a brutal battle of driving skills, complete with broadside t-bones and spin-outs. We listened to old-timers playing folk tunes, whippersnappers skillfully playing bluegrass, and a lot of contented folks , old and young, applauding the efforts of those playing the instruments and singing the old songs of the hills.

If you ever get the chance, plan a weekend trip to the Folk Festival one year, You won't be dissapointed. Music is being played in every nook and cranny on the vintage court-square as well as in the multitude of RV prks in and around town. There are various theaters who have organized shows with regular casts that never cease to thrill those hungry for old-style entertainment. There is truly something for everyone at the weelend event.

Come visit our part of the world! We'll leave the light on for you!

I have tried three times to post some photos, but Blogger is fighting me, tooth and nail! Gotta get ready for Curch, so I'll try to get them up later.

Goin' To One O' Dem-Der Hootinannies!

My family and I are about to embark on our short journey across White River and up the hill to Mountain View, Arkansas for their annual Ozark Folk Festival.

I'll have some photos and write a little about the event tonight.


Heads Bowed, Weapons Charged

If our war efforts are defeated by the incessant magnification of speculation on the part of Bush-haters in our own country, while the left celebrates in their victory over reason, the islamofacists of the world will join them in that celebration.

As they celebrate, we few, we proud, we Americans will ready ourselves for battle.

Ruby-Ridge and Waco will pale in comparison to what reasonable, moral Americans will face in that hour.


Free-Speech and Feminists


Have you seen this latest feminist form of free-speech expression? I was amazed to read this at Michelle Malkin's blog, but I was not in the least surprised.

Liberals tend to believe they own a monopoly on free-speech. The professor should be sued for civil-rights violations along with the zombies who followed her.

The photos are priceless!


Maureen Dowd--Attempting to Catch Her Tail

Dowdy-girl is at it again. She has written "The Rummy Mutiny", which praises the recent accusations from six of the thousands of active and retired generals from the US military.

Mutiny: open revolt, esp. by soldiers or sailors gainst their officers.
rebellion, revolution, insurgency,rebel, rise up, disobey, subvert, agitate.

What a legacy for those "noble" few who have differences with the Bush-administration.

Most mutineers were hung back in the days of the HMS Bounty. Let's build a scaffold on the mall!

These leftovers from the Clinton administration are in open revolt against our truly noble war-effort. They are involved in an open insurgency against our leadership. They are aiding and abbeting our enemies with their whining. Let's hold them accountable!


Remember The 9/11 Celebrity Fundraising Special?

I can remember watching the 9/11 fundraiser on the tube a few days after 9/11. Remember Cheryl Crow? The Boss? How about Neil Young?

Niel Young is my focus. My memory of Neil Young on that night is of a man so blown out of his mind--probably heroin--that he could barely stand much less perform. Do you remember that? Didn't he almost fall down or something? I can remember the other performers around him during the finale of the show purposefully standing apart from him. Do you remember that?

He's in the studio producing a self-described "anti-Bush" protest song using a 100 member choir. The song is entitled, "Impeach The President". One of the choir members said that her recording session was like a "12-hour peace rally".

Read about it here.

A good video would be to have 100 members of the unhinged Hollywood crowd dress up in choir robes and pantomime to the choral parts.

Anyway, I guess "Let's Roll" doesn't apply anymore. Oh, well!

Lessons From Dr. Sanity

I just found this site and wanted to share it with you. I've linked it on the side-bar as well.

The post linked would be a good bookmark to use as a quick reference. He lists commonly used fallacies and how they are employed. I felt kind of (cough, cough)er...umm.. guilty as I read the piece. Though I try to refrain from ad-hominems, sometimesI just can't help myself. Especially if I have already become a victim (happens ALL the time) of my opponent's ad-hominem attacks.

I do use fallacies as I visit around--sometimes even on this blog, of course. Most of the time I do so because I'm just too darn lazy to write ten paragraphs to explain myself. Most of the time my fallacies hit home and someone attacks my character of which they know nothing but that I am diligent in my sworn duty--making leftists look in the mirror.

Thanks for the post, Dr. Sanity!


Rummy vs The Capitulating Comrades-In-Arms

General Batiste, one of the recent dissenting generals who are calling for Rumsfeld's firing or resignation, was quoted as saying that there is no coordinated effort to oust the formidable US Secretary of Defense.

The capitulating comrades-in-arms statements over the recent weeks were "absolutely coincidental", he said. "I have not talked to the other generals".

I believe him! Not that this "sudden clamor" is "happening for a reason", as Batiste stated. The "sudden clamor" for Rummy's demise has been on-going since Rumsfeld took his place as SecDef! They can't stand him because he is honest, straightforward, and brutal to an ignorant main-stream media. The "reason" it is happening is obvious!

Batiste hasn't been talking to the other generals because the Democratic strategists have gone to each of them a compiled a plan of attack.

I believe him!! LL believes Major General Batiste! Whoodathunkit?

He hasn't talked to the others. He's executing the orders given by a Democratic party which puts it's political ambitions above America's need for victory in the war against Islamofacism.

There are two fronts to this war. The physical battlefield, itself, and the political battlefield back home. Dissent is one thing. Whistle-blowing is one thing. Following orders from a Democratic hierarchy that puts its own immoral and irresponsible agenda before the safety and morale of our troops fighting a war they unshakeably believe in is quite another thing. It's very questionable--VERY questionable!

There should be an ARMY of inestigative reporters checking on any connections these generals have to Democratic strategists! But there won't be. WE all know there won't be......(sigh!)


Rummy is Still Game!

st had to re-post this early entry from my blog. Again, it is still valid. The left hates Rummy. Rummy doesn't care and is NOT intimidated by any means. Thank God we have him!

Rummy is Game

Rumsfeld is game! I LOVE to watch him field the questions of liberals! I LOVE to hear him when he gives precise, articulate and accurate answers! I LOVE to see how the left HATES his guts, because he is so VERY professional!

He is Game! This VERY smart (and sly) patriot is NEVER flustered unless you count his obvious disdain at the questions from an idiotic media! He is well prepared to meet the harassment of an enemy that is both in awe and in bitter battle with him!

In my lifetime, there have been few who impress me the way that Donald Rumsfeld has. Ronald Reagan was, indeed, a great man.....(who amazingly was picked as the greatest American by the Discovery Channel's audience). I believe that history will one day put our present Defense Secretary on that lofty pedistal, as well!

Wagging the Camel--Chasing Her Tail

I love it when Maureen Dowd has an op-ed column published! I really enjoy reading what she has to say. When she writes using her superficial knowledege on a subject, I enjoy it even more. Mind you, whenever she writes about "Bushies" or the war in Iraq, she uses nothing but superficial knowledge.

Think about her most recent article's title: Wag the Camel. What does that actually mean? I figure it must be her attempt to utilize the hair-brained "wag-the-dog" attribute that most liberals assign to Republican administrations. It's funny she didn't use the "dog" analogy. Especially since her columns about Bush and the war tend to display the fact that she is chasing her own tail. Wag the Dog? Dogs chasing their tails? Did she use the "camel" thing because your humble LL has brought attention to the fact that the left is doing just that (chasing its tail) when it uses hindsight and speculation to undermine the war effort?

Probably not, but it is amusing that after I made my post about tail-chasing last week, Dowd changed "wag the dog" to "wag the camel"

They can run, but they can't hide. (Because they're not running anywhere--just going around, frantically, in circles)

Maureen Dowd has great writing ability. Her problem is that every negative thing she writes about the Bush administration is based on pure speculation and liberal hopefulness.

It encourages me to know that so many people flock to read her columns. It reaffirms my belief that the left is treading water--better yet, chasing its tail. They have nothing concrete against the "Bushies".

It's also amusing to know that Dowd and those who worship her every word think that they are really on the hunt when, in fact, they are doing what dogs do when there's nothing else to do!

If you like the sculpture in the photo, go see the rest of Paul Jenkins Sculptures and view his other cool works of art! This one is Chasing Tail. Personally I think it should be renamed, Dowdy Chasing Tail!

LL's Filesharing Apology (Revisited)

This entry was originally posted on 6/28/05. As I have just downloaded the complete album "Animal Magnetism" by the Scorpions, I felt I should revisit this post.

Yesterday's ruling against filesharing got me to thinking! At one time, I had a collection of vinyl LPs over 500 strong! Over the years I have lost many of them to moving, scratches, theft, etc.. I spent a lot of money, as a young man, on my collection! Much of my lost archives are either no longer available, or impossible to find. I have longed for years to hear some of it again!

A few days ago I downloaded software that allows me to find some of those lost "treasures"! I made a commitment to myself that I would only download and keep items which I have purchased in the past. In this way, the software would enable me to get back that which I have lost, while allowing me to explore music and artists that I might never encounter. Already I have found music that I intend to find and buy!

What rights do I have? If I have paid for a studio LP in the past, shouldn't that give me the right to have and listen to that music for the rest of my life? If I continue going to concerts and financially support the real owners of "intellectual property", shouldn't I be forgiven for downloading a file which contains samples of their work?

I have replaced many of my old albums by finding versions on Compact Disc. I intend to restore a small portion of my lost collection by downloading it from others who are willing to share it with me!

Prosecute me if you MUST!

Ahmadinejad--Vision of Splendor

Michelle Malkin asks the question: "What is Ahmadinejad up to Now?"

What do I think? I think he is like a dirty little nerd sitting at his computer console chatting with some phone-sex provider and lying about how well he is hung!

Ladies, when some freak brags about his adequate member, be skeptical--be very skeptical!

Likewise with an Islamic nut-case claiming to have a powerful military!


Illegal Immigration-Foreign Invasion

Conservative Cajun has a wonderful post on the illegal--ILLEGAL immigration issue. Thought I'd share it with that flocks over here every day!

Cheers, Nick! Great work!


Isn't It Ironic?

Remember how the Democrats blasted the Bush Administration over America's jobs being out-sourced during the last election cycle? Remember that America's jobs were being shipped over-seas and all that? Remember how they debated the Administration's job-creation recored?

Why is it that today the left is using America's abundance of jobs to justify illegal immigration?

Isn't it ironic?

I am Lot

God spoke to my heart today. What a glorious thing!

I was doing a little surfing earlier and got to pondering the similarities with our present generation to that of Noah and Lot. The differences are few.

I must admit, when I considered my family and the husband and father I have been to them I became quite humbled.

I am no "Christian" though, mercifully, I am a believer! I have been miraculously born-again--have been for many years. I am, however, NOT Christ-like. I am more like Lot.

When are the angels coming? Are they already here? Or is the precious prophecy from the Word of God the only warning to our generation?

These are the times we've all heard would come but were not sure whether or not to believe it!

" 26. And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

27. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

28. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29. But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

Luke 17:26-30 KJV

I know I could not be the only fool who God is speaking to during this time of growing tribulation.. Others must be hearing that call, as well. Thank God He gathers us in when we go astray.

My hope is that some who don't know the truth may find it in these days before the prophesied troubles. I haven't been doing my part in that mission.

I must change that. Straight and narrow and all that!


Missing Link--Missing Objectivity

Lawrence Selden at Darwinian Fundamentalism has a good take on the recent "missing link" from accepted "science".


Please Don't Judas Me!

I didn't watch the National Geographic documentary about the "Gospel of Judas" last night. I haven't read anything about it until today. I have heard all the hype over the last week or so.

When the New York Times does a piece on things Christian, one has to approach the message with REAL skepticism. The New York Times does not stand for truth. They don't stand for morality...fairness..tolerance!

The National Geographic Society? They have perpetuated the myth of evolution and worship flawed "science"!

I've only recently started to pay attention to the words of "Father" Jonathan Morris. I came across a wonderful article he wrote on the immigration issue last week. Today I found this article about the "Gospel of Judas". This guy is worth paying attention to and I intend to seek his columns out to read from now on.

These times we live in are the times that those of us who became Christians as kids remember the preachers talking about--The end-times when Christians would face great persecution from un-believers.

Judas was to Christ what the left is to America today. He went along for the ride and when the opportunity arose he selfishly attempted to destroy his righteous master. America and Christ are gathered in our own Garden of Gethsemane. What is the left up to during it's absence from our nation's present reality?

Boom-Boom and the Lefty

The third round of the Masters finally ended this morning after rain delays yesterday. I was excited to see the great field that would be playing over the weekend. I'm now on the edge of ny seat, eagerly awaiting final round coverage this afternoon.

Boom-Boom has not let me down. Tiger is on the prowl within easy sriking distance. Larry Mize is only 4 shots back! Heck, the whole FIELD could potentially win the tournament! There are only three players with a lower score than MIze.

I have a six-pack of Fosters on ice. My remote is ready beside me. I can't wait to get off the edge of my seat, extend the foot-rest, twist a top, and enjoy the final round of this year's Masters Tournament.


Look at the last few pairings!

Phil Mickelson 2:52
Fred Couples 2:52

Chad Campbell 2:42
Stephen Ames 2:42

Tim Clark 2:32
Tiger Woods 2:32

Vijay Singh 2:22
Darren Clarke 2:22

Miguel A. Jimenez 2:12
Rocco Mediate 2:12

Retief Goosen 2:02
Jim Furyk 2:02

Stewart Cink 1:52
Billy Mayfair 1:52

Awesome stuff! Watch out for Jim Furyk! He's most capable.


UPDATE! Divine Right of Bushies (Maureen Dowd Chasing Her Tail)

I was right. I just read Dowdy-girl's article and I was right on the money. Unlike her last column or two, she seemed to be a little more hate-minded in her most recent.

Quirky? YES!

Entertaining? OF COURSE!

Laughably wrong? YOU BET!

The left has not even realized that the Republican Administration has used their own tactics--brilliantly--against them!

Is Maureen Dowd a RABID dog chasing her tail?

Divine Right of Bushies--Maureen Dowd Chasing Her Tail

There are probably a lot of folks chasing Maureen Dowd's tail. But the thing that is so funny to watch during the left's present attempt to make something out of nothing, is how they are chasing their tails like dogs! Think about it!

Over the last couple of years, leftist morons who have no clue as to what is really going on have repeatedly jumped on the bandwagon when they think there has been a chink in the Bush administration's effective armor.

I remember Dubya saying that he would fire anyone who broke the law concerning the "leaks" surrounding the Valerie Plame situation. What a brilliant maneuver!

George Bush's administration has managed to out-do the left with his fantastic use of twist-speak! When he said that he KNEW that there was nothing illegal that took place! He KNEW he wouldn't have to fire anyone because he KNEW that he had declassified the information in question.

The next time we see a clip containing his promise to hold the law-breaker responsible we need to keep in mind that he is probably laughing inside.

When I offered this idea on another thread, a liberal pointed out that I sounded as if I were proud that he out-did the left using twist speak. My answer?

Since he did it for the right reasons and since it made the left chase its tail again so wonderfully, I said "YEP!"

Maureen Dowd has written a column entitled "Divine Right of Bushes". I admit I haven't read it. I can say without reading it, however, that it is full of shallow blame. I can say that Dowdy-girl was quirky, entertaining, and laughably wrong.

Maureen Dowd is chasing her tail again! Woof, woof!

Isn't it fun to watch?


NBC's Muslim Mission

I'm sure you've heard about NBC's mission to send people dressed as muslims to large gatherings--specifically those that tend to draw a more conservative crowd--with a film crew to capture video of Americans being intolerant.

It hasn't worked. I wonder if they will go ahead and do a story that dispels the fantasy they were trying to promote?

Anyway, thanks to Michelle Malkin for posting this brilliant cartoon.

Here's the site!

He's been known to put on brilliant displays of golfing skills at on this course. Larry Mize is there with a plus-sign, but he is the one who should be watched tomorrow.

It would thrill me to see Tiger win his fifth.

It would elate me to see Freddie don the Jacket once more.

I would be overjoyed to see Larry MIze smoothly swing his way to a thrilling victory, as well!


Illegal Immigrant Deserves Citizenship!

I just watched a segment on The O'Rielly Factor about Claudia Muro, a nanny who spent two and a half years in jail over an accusation by the parents of the child she took care of based on a 4 frame per second surveillance camera--a "nanny cam" they call it, who was recently released.

This woman spent TWO-AND-A-HALF years behind bars for doing nothing but playing lovingly with this couple's child. The tape, only NOW having been reviewed by the prosecuters in the case, has proven that to be fact. When keeping in mind that the device only recorded FOUR FRAMES A SECOND, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that this was nothing more than a childcare provider bonding with her charge--NOTHING MORE!


Now she faces immigration hearings after being released from jail. Her visa had expired when the dreamed-up incident occured.

If any illegal immigrant deserves a second chance, this is her!

The parents still believe the tape. They have refused to even review the analysis that prompted Claudia Muro's release from jail.

Shouldn't they be held responsible?

Shouldn't the "nanny cam" company, if it had marketed the system and also stood by the evidence in the case, be held responsible?

Shouldn't the state of Florida where the simple, clear truth was only uncovered after an innocent woman spent TWO-AND-A-HALF YEARS in jail--had her reputation stolen violently from her--be responsible?

The Media, yeah, you too, blogosphere, should be ASHAMED!

Here's the original story from the above linked source.

Shouldn't the WHOLE PROSECUTION TEAM--incompetent as they MUST be--be held responsible?

This is what the prosection had to say:"There just wasn't anything there to give us a reasonable expectation of securing a guilty verdict in court, which is what is required for us to proceed,"--Ron Ishoy, California State Attourney's office.

TWO-AND-A-HALF FREAKING YEARS? They just NOW decide that?

It doesn't really matter, I guess. The prosecutor in this case is not worthy of his job. He should resign in disgrace. But I'd really like to know--I wonder-- what party affiliation this prosecutor has? I guess it would be easy enough to find.

This woman had entered the U.S. legally even though her visa had expired. She should at LEAST be first in congress' "front of the line"!


Washington Journal--Converting Democrats to Republicans

I've got a great idea! I believe I know a way to convert Democrats to Republicans! All that has to be done is to somehow link C-Span's phone systems and call-in lines to the election commisiion in each state. When a person calls in on a particular line it automatically registers that person as a Democrat or Republican depending on what line they call in on.

Lately there have been a slew of "Republicans" calling in on the Republican line and denouncing the president. Anyone who watches the show regularly will know that these folks are really Dems converting themselves into Republicans.

Let's keep them honest!

Part Alligator? Part Seal? Every Bit a Guess!

The latest "missing link" has been manifested! Shall we all bow to modern "science" now?

McCain McDemocrat

John McCain seems to be having a little trouble out on the campaign trail. He's in for a surprise if he really thinks that conservatives are going to be charmed by his blatant pandering.

We all know he is a Democrat-in-disguise.


American Imperialism--Cure For Illegal Immigration

Since globalization looks invincible, Americanization is the key to stopping illegal immigration problems worldwide.

Are you offended by that?

What other process would you prefer?



Perhaps, Francifization?

How about Africanization?

Then there is Argentinization.



Canadazation? Oh! I forgot! Canada has already been Americanized!

Really, what other kind of zation is the world flocking to now?

America is more the shining city on a hill today than it has ever been in it's past. That is the one single truth we can be sure of when we debate the problems we are having with illegal immigration.

America is and has always been a compassionate, welcoming nation. America has taken on the challenge of seeing that the world is a more fair and safe place for everyone--its our nature. The oppressed of the world know that. It's why they risk everything to get here.


Bob Parks HIts the Nail On It's Head

I've just listened to Bob Parks' most recent blog-cast on the immigration issue that is gripping the nation. He brings up a wonderful point that I have thought about writing about before but have yet to do. I'm doing it now.

The immigration problem America faces is really concentrated on our southern border with Mexico. Yes, I know there are illegals who cross the border to the north. Yes, I know that there are many who come into the country illegally by sea. The fact is that the vast percentage of the illegals in our country gained acces throught the soouthern border. The Americans who are witnessing and involuntarily supporting the invasion force coming from Mexico are those who live in the south. They live in the southern states which either border or are adjacent to states that border Mexico.

The point Bob Parks makes and of which I agree, is that there will never be any significant change until politicians in NORTHERN states experience the problems of these southern states brought on and perpetuated by the lack of enforcement of current laws and the flippant attitude of those who do not have to experience those problems in their own back yard.

I have a feeling that if Mexico bordered us to the north and Canada to the south, it would be the liberal shmucks in the north who would be crying "bloody murder" about the immigration PROBLEM.

Problem is, they don't see immigration as a problem.

Out of sight-out of mind.

I've said before, there are not any good answers to the immigration question. I doubt there ever will be. There are laws. Laws that have been broken. Laws that have not been enforced. That's where the real problem lies.

Thanks, Mr. Parks, for your great insight and your reasoned, patriotic voice!

American Idol and Kenny Rogers--Not a Perfect Match

Kenny Rogers was the song-coach this week on American Idol. I realize Mr. Rogers' contribution to music. I don't recognize his value as a producer, however.

All but a couple of the performances were flat and boring. All but those same two were bad song -choices. A third was acceptable.

Katherine McPhee will win, I've already went out on a limb--though only a little way--and predicted that.

She will be paired with Chris Daughtry--already predicted--for the final.

Elliot will be a close third and as his stage presence improves may prove my predictions--both of them--wrong.

In the mean-time, call the doctor! I'm burning up with McPheever!

Cause I' blooded, check it and see! Got McPheever of a hundred and three!

The best performance of the night was Elliot's rendition of Garth Brooks' "If Tomorrow Never Comes".

McPhee missed a perfect opportunity to really shine in this week's country theme by picking a Linda Rondstadt tune like "You're No Good" or "Blue Bayou". I hope Linda Ronstadt dawns on her sometime during the competition and she actulaay does one of those two songs. Tonight she sang a song entitled "Your Bringing Out the Elvis in Me". I'd never heard of it. She did it well. Her sexiness along with her awesome voice made it a good performance.

Chris Daughtry, though out of his element somewhat, managed to show that he has the skills and voice to slow it down and sing a pretty ballad.

I fear for Taylor Hicks this week. Of all the country songs suited for his voice and style, he chose to sing a John Denver hit. Not a wise choice at this point in the game.

Boring show this week. I think this may be the last season if things don't liven up a bit on the show.

Maybe they could have Barry Manilow back for a show. His instruction was brilliant. The show he coached was the best all around show I've been able to see during the Ameican Idol run. Mr. Rogers needs to perform, record, then go home and watch "Law and Order" or something.

What do you think?


Ding-Ding-Ding-Ding! We Have a Winner!

It is a still.

It's a few hundred feet behind my house.

The previous owner of my house and his dad operated it during the 60's and 70's.

There is--believe it or not--still a long strand of black-plastic waterline that runs from the back of my property to the still.

I thought it was interesting and I had to share it with someone.

One of my oldest and best friends was raised on top of the next hill and can remember seeing the smoke rising from the woods when it was operating.

I can remember my own dad telling a story about how some of our cousins in the next county blindfolded him and led him to their still when we were home visiting one summer.

Stills are operating in the county even now. Now and then I even come upon someone who has a jug and have a sip or two. Some of it has been really great quality. Some of it hasn't.

So, there are still stills (heh,heh,) in these here hills!

Congrats to ElAshley! I'd award a link but he's already linked. Imagine that, of all the people who come to this blog and someone wins who already has a link.

Sorry, El--no prize for you!


Still Haven't Guessed?

Not a grave. Not a stone out-house. The end of the process which inspired the building of this structure has been known to lead to both of ElAshely's guesses, however.

Try again? (nudge, nudge)

Can You Guess What This Was?



Another "study" (I wonder how much THIS one cost us tax-payers?) has revealed "startling" information regarding our children and sex.

Give me a break!

Trust "Science"? No Freaking way!

You want to know why this liberal loather rejects today's accepted "science"? Read this and you'll see!

I was captivated by Forrest Mims' description of this "scientist's" speech.

Global Warming (man-caused).....Evolution....these lies are ALL nurtured by people like this idiot, Pianka!

Thanks to Kobayashi Maru for the link.


Maureen Dowd--A Retro-Critique

I feel guilty about inserting Dowdy-girl's name into my last post for no other reason than to generate a little traffic, but--HEY! It works, you know?
So, since my guilt-trip is getting the better of me I'll actually make a meager post about the nations quirky-quirk from the NYT.

I googled the girl and found this article from 2002. It's a pretty fair assessment of her mis-placed talent.

Maureen, Sweetie-Pie, if you would just start thinking from your heart and head concerning politics and quit thinking out of your ASS (pretty as it may be), you would be my heroine for sure.

But you know that old saying: "What a waste!"


Larry and Shemp Do the Big-Easy (The New Stooges)

Last year I wrote a piece about the high-stepping comedy team I refer to as "The New Stooges". It seems Larry (Al Sharpton) and Shemp (Jesse Jackson) have led their flocks on a march to demand that everyone displaced by Katrina gets to vote--wherever they may now reside--normally at special satellite polling places around the country. One has to ask--knowing the comedy-team's opening theme music for their shows ("Three Blind Mice", wasn't it?)--if this is not a perfect example of the blind leading the blind.

Really, how many of those who have settled somewhere else or are still in transition from their plight would actually vote anyway?

2000 showed up for the march. Close to 250,000 are thought to still be "displaced" (I use quotes because one has to wonder how many of those folks have decided to reject the Big-Easy and start new, fresh lives elsewhere).

Bill Cosby was there imploring those that participated to reject the murdering drug-dealin culture that existed there before the disaster happened.

At least there was one voice of reason in the crowd!

This is just a ploy by the stooge-brigade to create a situation enabling the left to manufacture illegitimate votes.

I wonder if Maureen Dowd was anywhere around? French Quarter, maybe?

Pyramids, Knobs, and Prickly Pears (Ozarks in the Springtime!)

I took my boys to the creek today. I got a few pictures to share.

I hope to get a more shots of several pyramid-roofed buildings and use them on my up-coming Izard County blogs as "Pyramids of Izard"!

Spring flowers--I love it!


Hollywood's New Weapon of Choice!

Forget gun-control! Cell-phone control may be a better platform for the left to use during the coming election season. Recent months brought evidence of a growing new trend among the leftist Hollywood elite! First Russell Crowe and now Naomi Campbell (third time, actually) find themselves in big trouble for assaulting someone with a cell-phone. Naomi beat her domestic worker with her cell-phone using it like a small club. Russell turned his communicator into a missle which he launched across the room at a member of the "media".

Should Sarah Brady be calling for demonstrations supporting some sort of waiting period for cell-phones? Hmmmm..............

I mean--THINK about it! Cell-phones are used for terrorist activities. Cell-phones are notoriosly used for drug transactions. Cell-phones are being used to detonate IED's in Iraq and could potentially be used for that purpose here in the states. Racist Democratic congress-people use them against Capitol Police for goodness sake!

Would this fall under the first or second amendment? One has to wonder!
