You're Joe Wilson speaking at a pro Palestinian EPIC Forum proclaiming Americas' agenda is, "apparent that this was all done to make Sharon's life easier and that American soldiers are dying in order to enable Sharon to impose his terms upon the Palestinians that people will wonder why it is American boys and girls are dying for Israel and that will undercut a strategic relationship and a moral obligation that we've had towards Israel for 55 years. I think it's a terribly flawed strategy."

It's funny(not ha ha funny) that Olbermann and his guest try to act like this is the first time that Palin and her family have been attacked like this. O.K. Olbermann says that not having sexual jokes made about your children is political correctness? Whadda buncha idiots. What are these people doing on television?

You're Jesse Jackson, an icon and leader of the civil rights movement and claim, "That's all Hymie wants to talk about, is Israel; every time you go to Hymietown, that's all they want to talk about."

Burning through Immelt's cash, while the cap n trade bill goes through, or not. For some of these people the brain slug doesn't suffice, the flying JellyFish, from
"Operation Annihilate" seems more apt

Now remember during the campaign when John McCain attacked Obama for acting like a celebrity and we all laughed at the grumpy ol' shell-shocked fool ... Well, it turns out he was right. It's getting to where you can't turn on your tv without seeing Obama.

Sometimes Rush can be a little harsh.

Oh, but wait. That wasn't Rush.

I mean selling the personal part to stay popular. I'm all for it. But hey, you've got us already. We like you. We really like you. You're skinny and in a hurry and in love with a nice lady ... But so's Lindsey Lohan. And just like Lindsey we see your name in the paper a lot, but we're kind of wondering when you're actually gonna do something.

It was Bill Maher.

And yes, the rest of the rant was based on Maher's complaint that Obama hasn't moved us far enough left.

Like Ted Rall did a couple weeks ago.

You're Senator Robert Byrd, and writing in a letter after he quit the KKK, "I am a former Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan in Raleigh County and the adjoining counties of the state .... The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia .... It is necessary that the order be promoted immediately and in every state of the Union. Will you please inform me as to the possibilities of rebuilding the Klan in the Realm of W. Va .... I hope that you will find it convenient to answer my letter in regards to future possibilities."

Ayers and Hillary both stated about twenty-five years ago that "the system" would have to be changed from within." Confrontational Hillary chose politics and ever stealthy Ayers claimed education: "Teaching invites transformations, it urges revolutions large and small. La educacion es revolucion." The SDS's Dr. Bernhard Rust wants to make sure that all Americans are taught to be, not Nazis, but socialist revolutionaries. What will the Open Society do with them? Bill has used race and class envy as his Rocket to Stardom.

As I see my country, Americans have a long fuse and wait until things really reach crisis stage. Preventive medicine or preemptive measures do not resonate. Right now the 62 million who did not vote for the man in the WH are wondering when the rest of the electorate will hear the screaming alarm bells.

You're president Harry Truman and write in a 1947 diary, "The Jews, I find are very, very selfish." Referring to Jewish treasury secretary Robert Morgenthau, "He'd no business, whatever to call me," Truman wrote. "The Jews have no sense of proportion nor do they have any judgement [sic] on world affairs. Henry brought a thousand Jews to New York on a supposedly temporary basis and they stayed."

Here is a good of a repsonse as any to Obama's plan of bull dozing cities.

The small article speaks for itself, but the two signal points are:

1) There is little acknowledgment in these communities that they cause their own problems, and that these problems are largely the direct result of left-wing politics.

and

2) There is no self respect. They will not seize upon this challenge and turn their communities around.


Again, has our character so changed?

If so, is it yet possible to turn the tide.

The challenges that the founding fatherss of these communities faced were surely more daunting than the challenges they face today. After all, the problems today are purely political.

It is sobering to meditate on this bulldozing plan, the spiritual debasement and defeat it embodies and what it portents for the future.

Rocco, you are such a treasure. Did you find any Joe Kennedy comments? He was a big fan of the Nazis too.

Re: transgender. I knew a young woman who had had the operation from male to female. She was a knock-out. A mutual friend and I met her at the same time and I was surprised at how at ease my friend was around her. He was a bit of geek and normally froze around women and became very awkward, never knowing what to say. We'd had many conversations about this "problem" of his. He was straight and found women attractive but he had no social skills where women were concerned and I think women frightened him to some extent. But, not this new friend.

He took to her instantly and within a few minutes was in an animated conversation. When I teased him about having a crush on her, he told me that his attraction had nothing to do with sexual attraction. He said he'd never met a woman who thought like a man like this woman. The were both 3D programmers, him for a large manufacturing company and as it turned out, she owned her own high-tech machine shop. He said not only did she program "like a man," but the explanations of her programming choices, her logical progressions, and knowledge of tool and die operations were as male as he'd ever seen.

Since I was getting matchmaker urges, I suggested that maybe he'd met his true soulmate, but he told me again that although he appreciated her looks and figure, it was the way her mind functioned that made him feel at ease just like he was when around the boys in the shop.

Well, long story short, we were invited to her home for a small dinner party. When she opened the door, behind her on the wall was a life-size portrait of a good looking young man in a tuxedo and a full and rather bushy black beard. Since I knew her to be single, I asked if the guy was a brother. She laughed and said, "no, that was me before my surgery." I know I gasped, I felt my friend's whole body jerk. To say we were shocked was an understatement, we'd had no idea.

I got to know her better and started asking all kinds of questions. For her, it was a five year journey that included in-hospital and outpatient psychiatric screening, hormone treatments, electrolysis, etc. One of the requirements was to prove she had had successful relations with a member of the opposite sex and she was required to store sperm. She said the psychological screening was long and brutal, but eventually she was approved for surgery.

She also said that the hardest thing she ever did was try to date after the change. She found that the men she had no problem being comfortable around in her machine shop or former life scared the bejeezus out of her when dealing with them as a woman on a date. She said she couldn't believe how sexist even the nicest guys were, something she said she never noticed when still a man. She didn't know how to flirt with men and felt very uncomfortable trying to be the helpless female that they seemed to envision as a feminine quality to be admired. And things that men would expect her to be able to do as a man, they found off-putting coming from a female. So in the end, although she was happy in her new role, she found that there was a whole lot more to being female than just the equipment and she didn't ever think she would truly understand the female mind or master true female traits, especially the female mind processes.

When we left the dinner, my friend said, "I told you so, she thinks like a guy and that's why it was so easy for me to talk to her when any other girl makes me tongue-tied and feel like a jerk."

Thanks Verner, how could I forget Joe Kennedy?

You're Joe Kennedy, who looked upon Adolf Hitler as a welcome solution to both of these "world problems".

You're Al Sharpton inciting a riot in the Crown Heights neighborhood of New York City in 1991, "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house."

You're a former CIA intelligence analyst and Democrat activist named Ray McGovern, "President Bush is "doing the bidding" of Israeli PM Ariel Sharon, the "neocons" were directing the actions of the Bush Administration so that "the United States and Israel could dominate that part of the world".

You're five time congresswoman Cynthia McKinney who among many anti-Semitic comments, blamed her defeat to Denise Majette on the Jews.

Actually the 88mm gun was horrifyingly reliable and accurate, and it was widely used on platforms like the Mark V Panther medium tank, and not just the tank killers noted by Cecil.

It cut through just about everything like butter.
