Giving thanks for the French

I'm giving thanks this weekend for people who think up great French jokes! Some of you will find these "cruel" and think I'm an evil American. Fine. However, I'm guessing that many others will be thankful that I've shared these laughs!

A: There aren't any so they had to bury some of ours on their soil.

Once Upon A Time...

Once upon a time in a nice little forest, there lived an orphaned bunny and an orphaned snake. By a surprising coincidence, both were blind from birth.
One day, the bunny was hopping through the forest, and the snake was slithering through the forest, when the bunny tripped over the snake and fell down. This, of course, knocked the snake about quite a bit.
"Oh, my," said the bunny, "I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you. I've been blind since birth, so, I can't see where I'm going. In fact, since I'm also an orphan, I don't even know what I am."
"It's quite OK," replied the snake. "Actually, my story is much the same as yours. I, too, have been blind since birth, and also never knew my mother. Tell you what, maybe I could slither all over you, and work out what you are, so at least you'll have that going for you."
"Oh, that would be wonderful" replied the bunny. So the snake slithered all over the bunny, and said, "Well, you're covered with soft fur; you have really long ears; your nose twitches; and you have a soft cottony tail. I'd say that you must be a bunny rabbit."
"Oh, thank you! Thank you," cried the bunny, in obvious excitement. The bunny suggested to the snake, "Maybe I could feel you all over with my paw, and help you the same way that you've helped me."
So the bunny felt the snake all over, and remarked, "Well, you're smooth and slippery, and you have a forked tongue, no backbone and no balls. I'd say you must be French."

"It's Great to Be Collaborating with Germany Again!"

Dateline: Paris, France --
French Prime Minister Jacques Chirac, in honor of France's agreement with Germany to undermine America's efforts in the War on Terror, took German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder on a tour of sites in the French capital city that were visited by another German Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, during his famous Victory Tour of 1940.

"It's so nice to be collaborating with the Germans again," said Chirac during a press conference at the Versailles Palace outside of Paris. "I mean, it's not like there was any real resistance movement when Germany ruled us during World War II. And those black leather coats the Gestapo men wore. Simply to die for."

Most French citizens this reporter spoke with expressed their delight at being able to collaborate once again with the Germans. A recent poll conducted by the newspaper Le Figaro showed that 95.6% of all French people are hoping to be re-occupied by Germany within the next 12 months. The poll results also reveal that the vast majority of French women are especially looking forward to becoming the mistresses of German officers so that they can have sado-masochistic sex in exchange for silk stockings and extra rations.

"Damn those Americans anyway," said Chirac during a visit with Schroeder to the Klaus Barbie L'Ecole Superieure du Behaviour Criminale. "Everything was going along just fine in 1944 and what did they go and do? Land at Normandy. Just like the Yanks, always butting their noses into other people's business. Well, we aren't going to take it lying down any more. This time we're going to surrender to Germany before the Germans have a chance to invade."

Got under my radar! (Leftist Media and "Staging")

I must have missed this story when it originally came out back in October but I couldn't resist getting an opinion in on this anyway...

President Bush was accused of yet another "faux pas" by the alleged mainstream press. This time, the administration was accused of staging the interview that President Bush conducted with troops in Iraq. This was such a perversion of the truth by the press. You can see some of what the press wanted you to see of the satellite feed at Media Matters. (If anyone has access to the full feed that hasn't been mutiliated for political purposes by enemies of America, I'd sure appreciate a pointer to it.)

The simple truth is that a Pentagon official worked with the troops to help them become comfortable with the cameras. The troops were given an opportunity to rehearse their questions. Maybe that sounds odd to some folks; however, as one who has been in front of a TV camera, I can tell you that it is absolutely nerve-wracking! You lose contact with your own ability to BREATHE and you miss some of the important points/questions you wanted to pose.

Think about it, Lefties: Why would the warm-up session be on a satellite feed if the administration was staging this? Wouldn't it be locked down against press perversion? Obviously, there was nothing foul afoot... other than a noble attempt to help troops relax and practice their questions before they met with their Commander-in-Chief, one whom many of them admire.

I seem to remember a bit of staging on the Left that didn't take much hammering from the press... anyone remember the question that was staged by a Chattanooga Times reporter during one of Rumsfeld's sessions with the troops in Kuwait City in 2004? A reporter planted a well-crafted question with a soldier who later stood up and asked it. Wasn't that "staging?" Sheesh.

Thanksgiving Amusements

Do yourself a favor and visit Hugh Hewitt's straw poll this Thanksgiving weekend. Not only is it fun to take but the results are quite intriguing!

Oh, and if there's still time to get this in before your Thanksgiving travails with Lefties at dinner, brush up on how to handle the inevitable argument with them over the war in Iraq.

Thanks for all you do, Hugh!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's that time again: time for food, family, and football, right? Well, not entirely... It's time to remember all that you have to be thankful for this year; it's time to remember those who help make those things possible; and it's time to remember that we live in the greatest country on Earth. It's time to thank the Almighty for His blessings, for His guidance, and for His patience with His children.

This year the list of things for which I am truly thankful includes:

* the health and happiness of my family and friends;
* my health and the ability to provide for myself so that I may help others;
* the brave men and women of America and like-minded free countries who volunteer to give their all for higher ideals that will make this world a safer and better place;
* the strong and generous families who stand by those courageous men and women;
* the people who are able to separate fact from fantasy -- I'm proud to call many of them friends;
* the few Right-minded individuals in positions of power who stand by their principles regardless of polls, negative rhetoric, and nonsense;
* the patience of those who know the road to freedom is never smooth; and,
* the grit and determination of every man, woman, and child who works for freedom within his/her life and within his/her world.

If you're not sure what you have to be thankful for, let One Marine give you his point of view on the matter. It may open your eyes and change your own list!

This Thanksgiving, as in years past, please remember those Americans who cannot be home this year to share the day with their families. Set a place for them in your hearts and in your prayers. It is only through their courage and sacrifice that this country remains free.


Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, y'all!

Colonel "Cut and Run," How DARE You?!

I am furious. I have finally HAD IT! I have respected and honored every veteran I have ever met and those I have never met. I have done so because each of them (in my mind) was courageous and patriotic. I have been thankful for each and every veteran who has stood between me and the loss of my freedom and security. I have honored these brave men and women who have served in our Armed Forces in every way possible throughout my life. I intend to continue doing so; however, NOW my eyes are open.

Today, John Murtha has prompted me to rethink the respect that I automatically give to the opinions of those who have served. After a 37-year career in the US Marine Corps and experience in combat, I would have thought that this man, John Murtha, would recognize cowardice. I would have thought that this VETERAN would have no respect for the type of person he apparently is. He has absolutely NO respect for the intelligence and courage of the American people for whom he has personally stood guard during his career in The Corps.

Today, John Murtha slapped every last liberty-loving, patriotic and intelligent American in the face with a cold reality: We must NEVER assume that someone who has served in the Armed Forces is a patriot, is brave, and/or is intelligent enough to understand military strategy. NEVER ASSUME because, as John Murtha proved to me today, none of those assumptions are necessarily true.

John Murtha has not only turned his back on The Corps but he has spit on every last one of our brave men and women in uniform with his call to withdraw from Iraq and return home in defeat. He has challenged the right of every American to support a war if we have never fought in one. If he were a true Marine, he would NEVER have suggested that the Vice President is unqualified to question Murtha's opinions. Ladies and gentlemen, every single one of us is qualified to support the troops if we believe in the freedom and security of our nation; everyone of us is qualified and entitled to review the information about what led us to war and decide whether or not to support the on-going effort; everyone of us is qualified and was born with the right to call a man what he is, a coward, an idiot, an a political puppet.

How dare you, John Murtha?! In my eyes, this 37-year veteran of the Marine Corps is no better than the cowardly draft-dodgers who ran to Canada in the 1960s. Shame on you, citizen Murtha. You are no hero, despite your service in the Marine Corps. Veteran or not, your opinions are a disgrace to your country and to every right-minded American!

Warner and the Death of My GOP

I am ashamed to be a Republican today. I feel like I have been held down by Senator McConnell so that Senator Frist and his accomplices could easily slit my throat. How is it that Republicans can have a majority in both the House and the Senate with a Republican President in office and still manage to slit our own throats on an almost daily basis lately?! It's official. The GOP is dead. At least, it is dead to me.

In case you haven't heard yet, with the President out of the country today, Bill Frist and John Warner decided to play political games and pass an amendment to the defense policy bill that was meant to be a political one-up on the Democrats and their amendment requiring timetables for our war against Islamo-fascism. Frist, Warner, McConnell, and Santorum (the current Senate Republican leadership) did not even have the decency to wait until President Bush was back in the country to stab him in the back -- they've managed to do it from afar.

From the Washington Post article "Senate Rebukes Bush on Iraq Policy" today:
"... The Senate rejected a Democratic resolution that would have pressured the administration to outline a plan to draw down U.S. forces in Iraq, but, by a 79-19 vote, lawmakers approved a weaker Republican version that insists on regular reports to Congress detailing the military's progress toward the goal of bringing the troops home..."

After the Senate had voted down the Democrat resolution, Republicans turned around and formed a circular firing squad. Of the current 55 Republican senators, 41 of them voted yea on the Warner amendment, effectively casting their votes to denigrate our Armed Forces, cut our efforts in Iraq off at the knees, give our enemies the Vietnam defeatism they expect of us, and threaten the security and well-being of the America we Conservatives know and love.

WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON IN DC?! Republicans, get your freakin' house in order!!

The Warner Amendment will be the closing chapter of my faith in the Republican party. It is no longer the party of Reagan; it is the party of Chicken Little.

Please note the following 41 (of 55) Republican senators who voted yea today on this shameful and harmful amendment:

Allard (R-CO)
Allen (R-VA)
Bennett (R-UT)
Bond (R-MO)
Brownback (R-KS)
Burns (R-MT)
Chafee (R-RI)
Cochran (R-MS)
Coleman (R-MN)
Collins (R-ME)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Craig (R-ID)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeWine (R-OH)
Dole (R-NC)
Domenici (R-NM)
Ensign (R-NV)
Enzi (R-WY)
Frist (R-TN)
Grassley (R-IA)
Gregg (R-NH)
Hagel (R-NE)
Hatch (R-UT)
Hutchison (R-TX)
Lott (R-MS)
Lugar (R-IN)
Martinez (R-FL)
McConnell (R-KY)
Murkowski (R-AK)
Roberts (R-KS)
Santorum (R-PA)
Shelby (R-AL)
Smith (R-OR)
Snowe (R-ME)
Specter (R-PA)
Stevens (R-AK)
Sununu (R-NH)
Talent (R-MO)
Thomas (R-WY)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Warner (R-VA)

Only 13 Republican senators remained true to their Conservative principles, kept their spines firmly in place, refused to play the Republican leadership's political game, and tried to keep Americans safe today. These senators voted No on the amendment:

Bunning (R-KY)
Burr (R-NC)
Chambliss (R-GA)
Coburn (R-OK)
DeMint (R-SC)
Graham (R-SC)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Isakson (R-GA)
Kyl (R-AZ) (*I couldn't locate an email form for Kyl*)
McCain (R-AZ)
Sessions (R-AL)
Thune (R-SD)
Vitter (R-LA)


As a Kentuckian, I am especially proud of Senator Bunning! He won a hard-fought race to retain his seat last year and I'm very happy to say that I worked hard at the grassroots level for him. Also, let me say that Senator McCain deserves our thanks today for taking the right stand. Read his statement; it's obvious that he fully understands the need to win this war against Islamo-fascism. His statement makes it clear that he sees the detrimental effects of the political game-playing that has been going on in the Senate with regard to Iraq.

As a Kentuckian, I am sickened by Senator McConnell's yea vote. He has obviously lost his senses. When Frist retires I certainly hope a true Conservative is put in charge because McConnell has obviously turned his back on his Conservative principles in favor of DC political games. I'm very upset with him.

The switchboard at Congress can be reached at 202-225-3121 -- simply ask to speak to your senator. The names of the senators in each list are linked to their email addresses if you prefer to write instead. If you're as furious as I am, please write or call. Senators need to hear from us on this.
It's bad enough that they've stabbed the President in the back but they are cutting our throats as well. Let's congratulate those who stood by our President and our Conservative principles by voting No on the amendment; and, of course, a good lecture is in order for those senators who voted Yea.

Do yourself a favor and vent to the spineless Republicans who voted Yea on this today. Let them know EXACTLY how you feel about their hands on the knife that cut the throat of every Conservative American today. I AM LIVID.

Thank you, Hugh Hewitt, for making this the focus of your show tonight. You are a true Conservative hero!
[PS: As I was gathering the email links for each senator, I noticed something interesting... the website email links for the senators who voted yea on this amendment were absolutely craaaaaawling. No problem on the websites for the senators who voted no -- quite speedy. Curious, ain't it?]

Russ Vaughn Strikes Again!

Paristine
With a nod to Joseph Farah at World Net Daily

Jacques and his frères are surely weeping
Les pauvres immigrès have caught them sleeping,
Paysans revolt, their emotions churning,
What’s that odeur? Is Paris burning?
Within the banlieues there’s no joy
Among les jeunes who are sans emplois
What, take a job? Not the way to go;
We’d rather riot, torch your Peugeot.

Ah, Mother France you took us in,
Then left us with no way to win.
We’re not ègal, not garçons blanc,
We’ve no real chance to earn a franc.
No, what we are, we’re useful fools,
For leftist dreams, just brown-skinned tools.
So the Rèpublique’s butt is in a crack,
Give your merci to Jacques Chirac.

We’ll breed you into minority,
Till only mullahs hear your plea,
And Shari’a rules throughout your land,
A Frenchman steals, he’ll lose his hand.
Your licentious lifestyle, long extolled,
Will leave your women stoned, dead cold.
But everything will turn out fine,
In the Muslim Republic of Paristine.

To Veterans on this Veteran's Day

I apologize for the delay in wishing you all a happy and thankful Veterans Day today. Those of you who read this blog even at the most random moments already sense, I'm sure, that the courageous and committed warriors of this country have my respect, admiration, and thanks on a daily basis. I'm grateful for the warriors of all free countries who willingly fight the good fight on behalf of all mankind. It is you courageous individuals who ensure that history will always contain stories of freedom, stories of goodness and compassion, and stories of human exceptionalism.

For our warriors who may be out in the field this very evening protecting freedom and helping ensure the freedom of others as well as those, like my Dad, who stood courageously in harm's way in previous conflicts, please know that you are truly heroes. Heroes are not found among the celebrities -- the athletes, the actors, the artists, the rock stars -- they are found among the common man with uncommon strength of character who holds ideals worth fighting for. You are the truest of heroes and you are all stars in the heaven of freedom for every good and decent human being. You do it not just for this country and its people but for the many people who struggle to be free around the globe. Without you standing ready to defend the freedom of the world's people, this would be a very dark work indeed.

Rush Limbaugh provided some great food for thought this afternoon with respect to what it means to be courageous. He quoted from G.K. Chesterton's Orthodoxy. It is not only true but it is poignant. I've reprinted here the paragraphs he read today for those of you who missed it:

"...Paganism declared that virtue was in a balance; Christianity declared it was in a conflict: the collision of two passions apparently opposite. Of course they were not really inconsistent; but they were such that it was hard to hold simultaneously. Let us follow for a moment the clue of the martyr and the suicide; and take the case of courage. No quality has ever so much addled the brains and tangled the definitions of merely rational sages. Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. "He that will lose his life, the same shall save it," is not a piece of mysticism for saints and heroes. It is a piece of everyday advice for sailors or mountaineers. It might be printed in an Alpine guide or a drill book. This paradox is the whole principle of courage; even of quite earthly or quite brutal courage. A man cut off by the sea may save his life if he will risk it on the precipice.

He can only get away from death by continually stepping within an inch of it. A soldier surrounded by enemies, if he is to cut his way out, needs to combine a strong desire for living with a strange carelessness about dying. He must not merely cling to life, for then he will be a coward, and will not escape. He must not merely wait for death, for then he will be a suicide, and will not escape. He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it; he must desire life like water and yet drink death like wine. No philosopher, I fancy, has ever expressed this romantic riddle with adequate lucidity, and I certainly have not done so. But Christianity has done more: it has marked the limits of it in the awful graves of the suicide and the hero, showing the distance between him who dies for the sake of living and him who dies for the sake of dying. And it has held up ever since above the European lances the banner of the mystery of chivalry: the Christian courage, which is a disdain of death; not the Chinese courage, which is a disdain of life. ..."

Thanks for helping us understand the true meaning of courage, Veterans. Please stay safe and stay strong. Most of all, wherever you go, whatever you do, know that you are valued, appreciated, and thanked by those of us who understand what it means to be free. Thank you for your courage, your commitment, and your service. Happy Veterans Day!

Paranoid? Who me?...

Okay, just for the sake of my sanity... would you be worried about an audit if the IRS (the office in DC, no less) did a Google blogsearch on the word "fairtax" and then spent time reading your post about it?

Wednesday, November 02, 2005

YIKES! This is Tax Reform?!

The President's Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform has published their recommendations in a nine-chapter report (plus an Appendix). As a supporter of the Fair Tax proposal, I find this panel's recommendations to be a complete waste of the time it took for them to compile it. It does not radically reform the current methodology and it leaves in place one of our government's biggest bureaucracies.

Herman Cain is a former 2004 US Senate Candidate in State of Georgia and former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City. He currently hosts a nationally syndicated radio show – “Herman Cain with the Bottom Line” and is a Fox News Business Contributor. I agree completely with his take on the recommendations of the advisory panel:

“Under the Tax Panel’s new proposals, lobbyists in Washington will get to keep their special loopholes. The incremental changes offered by the Tax Panel will only benefit K Street, not Main Street.

The Tax Panel has merely rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic tax code. The Panel’s recommendations will not make the tax code fairer for everybody. The top fifty percent of wage earners currently pay ninety-seven percent of all the income taxes. Under these proposals, Congress will still determine winners and losers with the tax code.


The Tax Panel’s proposals do not simplify the tax code either. Families and businesses spend 7 billion hours and nearly $300 billion each year filling out their IRS forms to comply with the code. Merely reducing the number of tax brackets does not make the code simpler for taxpayers or businesses. It’s still a 9-million word mess."

It is disappointing that the Tax Panel cavalierly dismissed the national retail sales tax, which is fair and simple for everybody. The visibility of the FairTax [HR 25 and S 25] would keep lawmakers from raising our taxes with ‘sneak-a-taxes’.

Over 80 economists and 47 members of Congress have read, understand and endorsed a national retail sales tax as the best alternative to the dysfunctional income tax code. The panel obviously ignored the hundreds of submitted statements and testimonies from the public and elected officials."

Congressman John Linder (R-GA) seemed to be a bit more optimistic in his remarks:

"...I remain hopeful, however, that Treasury Secretary Snow in his recommendations to President Bush will reach far beyond the limited foundation laid by the Tax Commission and propose true tax replacement in the form of a consumption tax - perhaps even a consumption tax that mirrors my FairTax proposal. The FairTax, the fundamental tax reform plan with more co-sponsors than any other bill in Congress, abolishes the entire income and payroll tax code and replaces it with a personal consumption tax on the purchase of new goods and services.

As disappointed as I am by the Mack-Breaux Tax Reform Commission's modest tax reform proposal, I am comforted in the knowledge that the report is only a small first step in what will be serious and fruitful Congressional action on fundamental tax reform in 2006. I urge Treasury Secretary Snow, President Bush, and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the House and the Senate to look seriously at the FairTax and to join me in exploring comprehensive options for preparing America's tax code and its economy for the challenges of the 21st century."

I certainly hope that the Congressman's optimism is well-placed!

VVLF Update

I received these updates from the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation (VVLF) today and wanted to share this news:

VVLF On The Air -- Thursday, November 3rd at 11:00 am Eastern, leaders of the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Foundation, including Medal of Honor recipient Bud Day, his fellow POWs Ken Cordier, Paul Galanti, Jim Warner, and Kevin McManus, and Mary Jane McManus will appear on the G. Gordon Liddy Show. Topics will include the lawsuits filed against the VVLF by surrogates of John Kerry, a conspiracy and defamation lawsuit the VVLF itself recently filed against John Kerry in federal court, and the organization’s ongoing efforts to set the record straight about the Vietnam War. During the program, excerpts from the POW documentary, "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," and from Kerry's infamous “war crimes” testimony before the Senate in 1971 will be played. Listen live online here.

Tell Your Story – The VVLF is collecting accounts from Vietnam veterans about their service during the Vietnam War and what they experienced when they returned home. If you served at the same time and place as any of those who claimed to have seen and participated in war crimes during the “Winter Soldier Investigation” in 1971, here's an opportunity to provide your version of those events. Your account should be fairly short (2 or 3 pages at most) and you should be prepared to document your service on request. We will make these accounts available to the public on our web site at VietnamLegacy.org. Please send your story to vets@vvlf.org.

Lawsuits – The case materials for the lawsuits against the VVLF and Carlton Sherwood by former members of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War have been posted on the VVLF website along with case materials for the new lawsuit filed against John Kerry. Read more here.

Let's Get Ready to Ruuuuummmmmble!

"You [Alito] have obviously had a very distinguished record, and I certainly commend you for long service in the public interest. I think it is a very commendable career and I am sure you will have a successful one as a judge." -- Senator Ted Kennedy in 1990 when Alito was confirmed without objection to the Appellate bench.

"If confirmed, Alito could very well fundamentally alter the balance of the court and push it dangerously to the right, placing at risk decades of American progress in safeguarding our fundamental rights and freedoms." -- Senator Ted Kennedy in 2005 when commenting on the nomination of Alito to the Supreme Court on Monday by President Bush.

It is unprecedented for the Senate to oppose a nominee as qualified as Samuel Alito. Justice Antonin Scalia was approved 98-0 by the Senate. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was approved 96-3, and Justice Stephen Breyer was approved 87-9. Chief Justice John Roberts was overwhelmingly confirmed by the Senate.

So, Senator *hiccup* Kennedy, are you ready to ruuuuuuuuuummmmmmble?

Hey Reid, where's your letter of resignation?

Fellow blogger, ScottG, is calling for Harry Reid's resignation on his blog "Ah, Shoot!" I certainly agree with him and will add my voice to the demand for Reid's resignation; however, while we're at it, I'd like to see Dickie Durbin's name added to that resignation letter as well.

I seriously doubt that Harry Reid or Dick Durbin have ever done a noble thing in their lives. It's probably asking a bit much of them at this point to expect that they would understand the damage they do to this country on an almost daily basis when they purport themselves this way.

This ConservaChick will likely suffer coronary arrest if any dim-witted Dem recognizes the error of his ways and resigns! No need to get the defibrilator ready; it won't be needed, I'm sure.

Enough already. Sheesh.

I am being baited by Liberals on a daily basis now thanks to their delusions about the Libby indictment. Have they any clue how silly this is? As if I will somehow blow a gasket because yet another Lib has misconstrued the Libby indictment as proof of something perpetrated by the Bush administration. Puhleeeze!

I actually received a call tonight from a lunkheaded Lib saying, "Oh, nice move by W today! Stroke of genius that he warned us all about the bird flu. I mean, I'm so scared of getting the bird flu now that I've forgotten all about the indictment of one of his cabinet members." HELLO?! I couldn't even begin to straighten out that mess. So, I let it go. Laughed it off and said, "Well, as I recall you Libs ripped him a new a-hole over last year's flu vaccine shortage. I'd say that he must have gotten the message about that, wouldn't you?" ;)

This stuff is just so indicative of the Lib mentality. They defend the heck out of nonsense and expect people to believe them and/or respect them for sticking up for their fellow Libs. We Conservatives, on the other hand, own up to the facts, analyze the situation, and get very clear on what it all means. Of course, we're all now REALLY comfortable with the fact that no matter what W does, they will complain and jeer. It's old hat now.

Tsk, tsk, tsk, Libs. Get a grip on reality and stopping calling and emailing me with your nonsense. It's getting old. Really.
