Ron Paul

Ron Paul madness from LGF:

An LGF reader emailed this photograph, showing Ron Paul at the Values Voters Presidential Debate in Fort Lauderdale on September 17, 2007. Immediately to Paul’s left: Don Black, the owner of neo-Nazi hate site Stormfront. If anyone knows who the creepy guy in the hat is, please post a comment.

Update: it’s Derek Black, Don’s son.

Head over to LGF to see more (and the nuttiness that comes with him putting that up)

Divine Intervention and the Date Police

Preacher Command in Tehran blitzes a ton of internet cafe's, computer clubs and tech saavy kids in their desperate doomed attempt to control socialising in a nation fixing to bust with young people.Colonel Nader Sarkari of the Mullahs Online Posse explains during a well earned break from targetting almost 500 online hot hook up spots why the regime is freaking out at unbridled internet access. Lawless hoods and out of control ho's are frequenting these shady establishments for a myriad of wicked purposes:
"Using immoral computer games, storing obscene photos ... and the presence of women wearing improper hijab were among the reasons why they have been closed down."
Goodluck. In a increasingly prohibitive society, fun of any kind is outlawed, contact with hotties (h'jibed or not) and hot guys severly limited, and no free media.

This Achilles heel is exploited by kids in Iran right now. Filter busters appear scrawled on the back of bus seats in Tehran's Mass Transit System - risable' rich as the current hand picked Pres of Iran has a PHD in traffic management and as mayor tried to segregate bus lines.

One of the Regimes top 20%ers, cleric Ahmad Khatami's announcement lends heavy despotic weight and talks plainly to kids - in a language they can easily understand. The regime desperately wants to dial in ancient days on the way back machine. Explaining that all mullahs in the Islamic Republic desire the very same
"Our people want their women to be able to go in the streets with respect and want their dignity to be protected, Our people want the society to be morally clean."
Only prob - "Our people" means the Mullahs. In their 'clean society' concepts are not easily upgraded to the New Millenial standards of free choice. The Mullah's clean society is a medievel society that sometimes considers concepts like shame and honor so dear (note these dear concepts often seem to be between the legs of their daughters, sisters, nieces and girl cousins).

In an illegitimate theocratic regime like Iran's, their particular brand of Sha Ria, alas, is as unpopular as any law, tradition or time honored practice tends to crush the human spirit. And when spirit crushing is in demand - break out the secret police.

Newly appointed Police Chief Brigadier-General Ahmad Reza Radan is no stranger to crisis or extremeis. As a young Revo Guard commander in the Iran Iraq war he's dealt with the human spirit and young people too.

Using 1000's of "Besiji's" - essentially teenage boys - many volunteered by their families to fight at the front as a Martyr's Battalion - Radan saw 1st hand the very creative use of human wave attacks when the Armies of the Ayatollah drove the Iraqis out of Iran and began payback counteroffensives that beseiged Basra for nearly six years. Despite the utmost in faith, tons of plastic keys to the gates of paradise and some of the very first duct tape Red China built - multi groups of boys bound together tended to have the same horrific failed effect when pitted against entrenched machine guns, mustard gas and fixed machine gun kill zones.

Even faithful Guard Commanders and their NCO's might suffer a slip of faith now an then. The waste of lives for gains measured in yards weighed heavily on a younger comrade who openly asked why Allah would allow such carnage among faithful children armed only with a plastic key and unlimited faith in Ayatollah Khomeini. Radan's answer was quite esoteric:
"How do you know Allah doesn't require these measures?"
Recently at one of the regimes fake "Police Fairs" Radan was available for questions by concerned citizens about Police crackdowns on music, dress codes and essentially unIslamic activity. One of the reporters of ISNA (Iranian Students News Agency) was brave enough (hasn't been heard from since Oct.) to quiz the General about a conversation cops and a girl which he had recorded a few days ago. Here are some parts of the conversation. (The girl is arrested in her car with her date.)
Police officer: Allah has sent me to arrest you and prevent a crime.
Girl: What are you talking about? What crime?
Police officer: You have sat together at this unusual time, inside a dark car, in a deserted area of the city.
Girl: Is it our CRIME? Allah has sent you for this?
Police officer: yeah, Allah knows if I wasn't here on time what a scandal could happen to your family.
Girl: It is not deserted here. There are many people there in the park and so may cars pass by here.
Police officer: I don’t know. I just know Allah has sent me…
ISNA then asked Radan about the admittedly unIslamic concepts of civil rights and if cops should treat people like this.

Radan's answering question was quite esoteric
"How do you know that officer was not sent by Allah?"

Climate Porn

It's amazing that a story like this doesn't seem to be getting much press. Of course it's on drudge so the MSM may catch up later.

If your heart is set in stone about a warm New Year, you may be disappointed to find that more and more scientists think that climate change is simply that and not a man-made phenomenon to redistribute the wealth of the world into Al Gore's basement.
Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.

The new report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s office of the GOP Ranking Member details the views of the scientists, the overwhelming majority of whom spoke out in 2007.

Even some in the establishment media now appear to be taking notice of the growing number of skeptical scientists. In October, the Washington Post Staff Writer Juliet Eilperin conceded the obvious, writing that climate skeptics "appear to be expanding rather than shrinking." Many scientists from around the world have dubbed 2007 as the year man-made global warming fears “bites the dust.” (LINK)
US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works
All the doomsday wishers in the world won't change what is actually happening and finally the public will get to see that the 'consensus' was nothing more than an attempt by certain people to capitalize on the fears of the common man, much like the Ice Age fears of the 70's.

Ron Paul

(head over to Conservatism with Heart for this also)
A couple of good posts about Ron Paul on the 'net today. First by Don Surber on Paul's poll ratings:
Good news

Gallup shows Ron Paul tied with Alan Keyes.

Republicans can relax. The latest Gallup Poll shows the viral video candidate Dr. Paul is tied with the goofball Keyes at 3% each. It is Dean ‘04 all over again with another Internet-driven campaign that is going nowhere fast.
Don Surber
Next is the case against Paul by Professor Bainbridge:
Click for the rest of the story
I’ve been cataloging my quest to settle on a GOP Presidential candidate to support in 2008 (so far I’ve stick with Fred Thompson mainly by default). I took on McCain, Romney, Huckabee, and Tancredo in this post. I went back to make the case against Huckabee in more detail in this post. With Andrew Sullivan having endorsed Ron Paul, it’s the latter’s turn. (UPDATE: Now Sullivan’s even implying support for a third party bid by Paul.) Unlike Andrew, I’m afraid I can’t work up any enthusiasm for Paul.
Professor Bainbridge
Make sure to read the rest of his post (and especially the comments).

Ron may run on a 3rd party ticket and that is just where he deserves to run.

Jose and Carlos are panhandlers......

They panhandle in different areas of town. Carlos panhandles just as long as Jose but only collects 2 to 3 dollars every day. Jose brings home a suitcase FULL of $10 bills, drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage free house and has a lot of money to spend.

Carlos says to Jose "I work just as long and hard as you do but how do you bring home a suitcase full of $10 bills every day?" Jose says, .... "Look at your sign, what does it say"? Carlos sign reads 'I have no work, a wife and 6 kids to support.'

Jose says "No wonder you only get $2-3 dollars." Carlos says... "So what does your sign say?"

Jose shows Carlos his sign......

It reads, "I only need another $10.00 to move back to Mexico."

Having a bad day?

To my darling husband,

Before you return from your trip I just want to let you know about the small accident I had with the pick up truck when I turned into the driveway. Fortunately, not too bad and I really didn't get hurt, so please don't worry too much about me.

I was coming home from Wal-Mart, and when I turned into the driveway, I accidentally pushed down on the accelerator instead of the brake. The garage door is slightly bent but the pick up fortunately came to a halt when it bumped into your car.

I am really sorry, but I know with your kind-hearted personality you will forgive me. You know how much I love you and care for you my sweetheart. I am enclosing a picture for you.

I cannot wait to hold you in my arms again.

Your loving wife.


p.s. Your girlfriend called

Joe Mole

This morning before going to school, lil bit read Joe Mole to me. It was her homework (she had read it two times, but Falen said one more time).

The premise behind the book seemed to be the long O sound (and telling you that slow and steady still wins the race) and she had little problem with most words. She would sound them out and then read the word (usually sounding them out as a short o, then correcting herself) until she ran into the words goal and moan. While still the same sounds, they don't sound out the same to a six year old :) Other than those two words, she got the rest of the book by herself.

Along with the moment I got married and lil bit's birth, this was probably the proudest I've been (she has read a book before, but not this much by herself). Unlike those other times, however, this one was somewhat bittersweet. It was great because she could do it herself and I was proud of her for it, but reading is the first step to independence (yes I know she's six). When you can read for yourself, you don't rely on others as much as you once did. Now she'll be able to play games that she couldn't do before because she had to have someone read things to her (that she didn't understand). Hopefully she'll be a big reader like I was; but whatever, this changes things for her.

This will open up a world that she never knew existed. Along with her vivid imagination, she'll get to visit worlds other people have dreamed up and not just her own. As much as she loves movies, I think that soon, she'll appreciate books even more.

Not much reason for this post, just dropped her off at school and thought I should share this with everyone :)

Division II Championship

Didn't get to goto the game today as I had to sleep (working midnights) and then goto lil bit's birthday party :)

FLORENCE, Ala. -- Michael Terry scored a touchdown with 22 seconds left as Valdosta State beat Northwest Missouri State, 25-20, Saturday for the Division II championship, the Bearcats' third consecutive title-game loss.

Terry's 1-yard TD run capped an eight-play, 37-yard drive sparked by Willie Copeland's four straight completions for 27 yards. Valdosta (13-1) overcame a 14-3 halftime deficit as

Northwest Missouri finished the season 12-2.

"I don't know if words can describe the disappointment that I feel for these guys," Bearcats coach Mel Tjeerdsma said. "They've done a great job and we've had a great run. They got beat by a very good football team."

Valdosta State's William Montford intercepted a desperation pass by Joel Osborn with 16 seconds left to preserve the win, and Blazers fans swarmed the field, soggy after a cold rainstorm blew through.
