Nuther Typical Conversation #3

Wifeypoo comes in and sits down to computer - Soon fast typing sounds are heard. (much faster than his by the way.)

He: Oh wow! I take it you got email!

She: No. Jill is online...

He; So you are writing her telling her she should get offline so you can call her?

She: Silence... (Except for typing sounds)

He: Do you want me to shut up.

She: Yes please.

I Hate Buried Comments!!!

Sometimes I come across a blog post that deserves an answer. Then when I comment it gets lost in the deep, forgotten, underworld of blogging, "The Comments" of a never read again post.

Well I type with four fingers and sometimes a thumb. Plus I proof read most everything (sometimes successfully - Spell check caught a couple in this cut and paste). All of this adds to the time factor. At times I can agonize for the right word to make my point. I hate to see all that buried forever and ever and ever until the Internet is no more. (See Wikipedia - End of Eternity)

Not to mention that ParaTed2k says he likes my writing and thinking. Quote from his comment on one of my posts: "excellent writing and you make some great points." (Got him fooled at least. Shhhh...-(;-)

Setup: Citizen Against Lies posted "Supreme Court: Bush WAY Exceeded Powers" in which the blogger came up with the usual "Hate Bush" diatribe that did not offer any solutions and in effect gave aid and comfort to people that want to rip off the head of anyone including their own mothers if it serves their purpose. (This includes you and I dear reader)

With 3 Contributors to this blog (Shelly L., John P. & Mare) we have for this post Shelly L, writer, with Mare commenting - Ohhh! What a wonderful thing it is for the Supreme Court to give Geneva Convention signing status to merciless thugs with no uniform or country's army status behind them. (See ParaTed2k's post on that) Much of the typical "Hate Bush" blindness that so many progressives have these days.

My comment follows:

Even if this was "Bush's War" I don't understand why you are against it. This is a war of GOOD PEOPLE against terrorism that should have started when the Twin Towers were first attacked. You remember that event or perhaps you were not born yet...

- These murderous (Remember Nick Berg) offspring of pigs would slit your throat as soon as listen to your drivel. Good luck to you and yours if you win and you help the U.S. and it's allies loose this war against Islamofacism...

Just imagine your favorite ladies wearing burkas

Perhaps they will kill you quickly and not muck it up like they did with Nick Berg!

P.S. ATTN. Mare (Another Commenter) - re your line: "Actually, it's Bush, his cronies and a little more than a third of the US population against those of us who still like to think for ourselves." -

According to your math you have 2/3rds of Americans on your side!

Win the next elections and you can rule the world. Haa Haaa Haaaa!!!

What a loser... Hey Get Michael Moore to run. There is a winner for you! (More laughter as I hit the submit button!

Rumor has it (I could not verify it) that the Belgium-based consortium know as Swift has cut off it's part in the program that has captured terrorists in the past. Whether it ever will again???

May the blood of innocents killed as a result of the New York Times Company and the L.A. Times revelations of this program be on their hands and head! May they remain marked when they face the judgment seat of the Living God!

Sailor in the Desert is Back!

Blogger extrordinaire Sailor in the Desert, a thorn in the side of the radical left, is back from hiatis.

His actual return date was 22 June 06 and did he notify me, His bestest fan? Nooooo! I had to click on the link in my blogroll as I have been doing periodically for the last two months...

This gives me an excellent opportunity to walk in forgiveness so I will.

Actually Sailor has been setting up and working on Hooah Radio ( for a while now and this is the reason for his absence.

"What is Hooah Radio?", you ask... Good music & Great people supporting our troops. Check it out.

Go to the Hooah page and on the right hand side is a Yellow Bar - Click here to listen - From there you will have a choice of connection speed and program (Realplayer, Winamp etc..) - Below the Yellow Bar is a request/dedication button. Don't be shy about using it. -

Welcome back Sailor - A post a day is all we ask! -

Typical Conversation

At home in the early evening. Me blogging, wifeypoo writing email to a friend she could easily call...

He: "How do you spell typically?"

She: "You're asking the wrong per..."

He: "Nevermind. I'll get it." (Quickly cutting and pasting potentially mis-spelled word into a Google page) - "You know what I do when I'm not sure of a spelling?"

She: "You've told me so many times dear."

He: (Remembering he has done so...)

She: "Not that I remember."

We both laughed. It was so typical...

One Senator Short on Flag Burning Amendment

The Supreme Court, in 1989, decided that flag-burning is protected by the First Amendment. They declared in their decision it is a free speech issue. This took the issue out of the hands of states (and citizens of said states) and made it a federal issue that could only be trumped with a constitutional amendment. States were left with using local laws about starting a fire without a permit or anti-mischief laws to prosecute flag burning.

Yesterday (27Jun06)the senate voted 66-to-34 which was one vote short of the 67 required to send it to the states for potential ratification as the 28th Amendment.

Those who voted against it do not trust the people of the United States to make the decision they (the senators) wanted. "Protecting the peoples free speech", they say. On the other hand they did not protect the peoples right to make decisions as a nation of states. They worked against that...

Concerning Flag Burning and free speech I say the following:

prying1 sez:

I keep hearing flag burning is a free speech issue.

How many words must be spoken, expressed or written to burn a flag?

ans: None.

When bystanders see the flag burned what exactly does it tell them? Doesn't speech convey specific information, thoughts and ideas? What specific speech is conveyed through a piece of cloth burning?

ans: Nothing, Yes, None.

It has nothing to do with "speech". It is an "action" we are really talking about not speech. I consider it to be speech when a soapbox is dragged out, someone climbs upon it and starts speaking. Even if they have a disability and must use posters and sign language. Ideas are put forth.

As a form of protest flag burning is below the bottom rung of telling people what you believe. That is because it is not speech and says nothing specific.

Had this passed it would have gone to the states to ratify it. The states would then let it's citizens decide on a state by state basis. When enough states said yes or no then it would go forward or stop.

So why didn't the powers that be allow the people to decide? There is where our free speech is being suppressed.

Left Wing Moonbats are not Worth the Resources

In traveling about the blogosphere I have come across a few blogs that put forth the idea that the recently exposed "Swift" terrorist's financial surveillance program (Thanks NYT & LAT) is all about our government capturing people that disagree with the Bush White House.

They will disagree with the above statement but that is what it comes down to. They will say I'm being deceived by the Bush White House and that he is after me too. It is for my own protection that this program was exposed. If only I understood but I'm too small minded and am a pawn in the conservative hierarchy's plan to rule the world...

- I recently left the following as a comment on Okie on the LAM - Thought it needed to see daylight so I'm posting it here too.

What gets me is the lefties seem to think that these programs are all about them and their privacy. As if these jokers have enough money in the bank to warrant being in the 'Swift Database". Same thing with the phone numbers.

The lefties seem to think that the surveillance is against lefties. Insignificant slugs that they be. - They need to be reminded that they are not worth the bitspace or bandwidth much less the manpower involved with these programs.

These programs were set up and utilized to capture bad guys. Although lefties have diminished brainspace and can be irritating at times this does not come anywhere near the interest level that the terrorists demand and receive from our government.

Is It getting Closer To the Time

For Murtha to apologize?

Apparently more news is coming out concerning the Haditha incident.
The Soldiers involved have not been deemed totally innocent yet but:
The American Thinker links to a Newsmax Story

Note what American Thinker says in this paragraph.

In contrast to the video Time relied on to condemn Kilo Company, a video of dubious provenance and authenticity, the military apparently has another, one taken by an unmanned aerial vehicle which recorded the entire battle and which confirms the Marine's version of events, or so NewsMax reports:

How different is that from what Murtha said? American Thinker carefully qualified the statements in the paragraph while by all accounts I've seen Murtha had made a statement of fact in saying that the Marines were guilty of killing the civilians in "cold blood."

Rightwing Nuthouse has this: While it is not unusual for small details to be lost or found in different translations, these discrepancies are huge, up to and including one 12 year old girl (or 13 or 15 depending on which report you are reading) being in different houses, being shielded from the wrath of the Americans by 3 different family members, and telling completely different and ever more bloodcurdling details of how the Marines killed her family.

Then there is the weird case of Aws Fahmi. In an AP report, he is reported to have been a victim of the massacre, left to bleed in the street after being shot by the Americans. But the Washington Post story in which several eyewitnesses are interviewed, features Mr. Fahmi's testimony prominently and in which the "victim" has morphed into an eyewitness, viewing the events from his house with no mention of his being shot and left to bleed to death in the street.

The NewsMax story says: Video evidence supports the Marines' claims. Within a very few minutes, battalion, regimental, and division headquarters were able to watch the action thanks to an overhead ultralight aircraft that remained aloft all day. Photos of some of the action were downloaded and in the hands of Marines and the NCIS.

I did not read anywhere that anyone reporting this had actually seen the video. There is however a growing basket of evidence that all did not happen as Murtha said.

This post is to remind those interested, both on the right and on the left that all of the reports and investigations have not been released or finished yet. Rumors should be checked with assorted sources before running with it. Make sure that all the sources of said rumor are not from the one and only Single Feeder source
It will bode well for Bloggers of all stripes to be patient and wait a bit longer.

Okie on the Lam and the Los Angeles Times

Once again I'm taking the easy way out and sending my readers toodling off to another site. Okie on the Lam has an excellent post entitled Deaths in Iraq, Financial Data Tracking, Global Warming and Killing Your Friend - Gotta Love the LA Times! -

The L.A. Times has gotten even worse over the years. Right thinking people know that it will poison parrots, cockatiel & parakeets with liberalism so it is no longer useful even as a bird cage liner. Wrapping fish in it will flavor of the fish with a nasty taste.

Some quotes from Okie's post:

Iraqi Death Toll: Nothing like throwing out misleading, irrelevant numbers to make a point. 50,000 deaths since the invasion of Iraq is nothing to make light of, but how many people were being killed by Saddam and his army, sons and henchmen before he was driven out of power?

prying1 here. I had to wonder when I saw the headline yesterday how many of those 50,000 dead were murderous thugs. The world is a better place with Saddam gone and these terrorists being put away...


Global Warming: In the global warming scare story the subhead was: "The massive glaciers are deteriorating twice as fast as they were five years ago. If the ice thaws entirely, sea level would rise 21 feet."

Yeah? Wonder what the real chance of that happening would be? They don't answer that question. Indeed, scientists can measure what appears to be a current phenomena, but without going back literally millions of years, they can't put this information into any meaningful perspective. And, what I keep reading and hearing from the global warming fanatics is that global warming will most likely bring on the next "Little Ice Age". But hey, it does make great copy, and we all love a good scare now and then. Remember in the 70's when the scientists were all predicting the coming of the next Ice Age? So, what's it gonna be guys, global warming or global cooling? Warming or cooling, warming or cooling - kinda cyclic, don't ya think?


Assisted Suicide: (LAT Quote) Mel was sort of surprised that as a Christian I so staunchly agreed with him about assisted suicide: I believed that life was a kind of Earth school, so even though assisted suicide meant you were getting out early, before the term ended, you were going to be leaving anyway, so who said it wasn't OK to take an incomplete in the course? (end LAT quote)

OK, I've found myself in deep yogurt before in questioning someone's Christianity, but come on, "who said it wasn't OK"? Uh - "Thou shall not [commit murder] kill." That sounds reasonably familiar. God sanctions the killing of murderers and killing on the battlefield for a just cause, but I don't think I have ever come across the part where he tells us to kill those that we love, for any reason.


Only one thing I disagree with in this post is the line in Okie's title. - "Gotta Love the LA Times!" -

Go and check out all Okie has to say and agree or disagree leave him a comment.
