Good Idea, Bad Idea.

Good Idea: rather than making the full tin of Chili, take the top third off, and put it in a storage container for later. That way when there are two containers, one can have them.

Bad Idea: Deciding that simply because ONE of the Containers have these really groovey bluish spots, that could well mean they are Blue Meanies, from the yellow submarine, this may not indicate that the second container has gone Blue Too....

More Reasons To Bomb Canada ( The Papist Crisis.... )

Hey Kids, did anyone notice how the Papists Are Coming!!! The Papists Are Coming!!! And they want to destory our White Christian America by making it an enclave of Papist Revisionist Ideology that owes it's Allegiance to the Bishop Of Rome and NOT to God's Divinely Decided Upon Decider The Divine Decider that the Argument From Inteligent Design Dictated!!! In related news, we notice
Summary: On CNN Headline News, Glenn Beck asserted that "[t]here is a double standard in the world today" for Christians, and Catholic League president Bill Donohue later asked, "Why is it that, you know, other religions aren't held to the same degree of scrutiny?" In fact, both Donohue and Beck have a history of making inflammatory comments about religions other than Christianity.
[ cf Ignoring their own past, Beck and Donohue complained of "double standard" in discussion of religions ]
I mean, get realistic....

Why should ANY AMERICAN be allowed to Owe Allegiance to a Foreign Dictator, such as the Bishop of Rome, and that especially when the Bishop Of Rome has OPENLY OPPOSED THE GREATEST MILITARY LEADER EVER!!!!!! who is at this very moment Ever Gloriously And Ever Victorious Winning the Most Holiest Of All Holy Crusades!!!

I mean, do we want our nation to turn into the land of Demonic Beast Creatures Devouring The Flesh Of White Christian Pert Nippled Full Breasted Teenage Virgin Cheerleader Girls????

Or Is It Time To BOMB Canada until America Is American Again!!!

Gosh, Golly, Gee Whiz, What Ever Will We Do???

Summary: While other media outlets, in their coverage of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, have addressed the longtime evangelical hostility to Romney's Mormon faith, Fox News has largely avoided the subject and has responded to other media coverage of the issue by alleging media bias or, in the case of one guest, accusing liberals of anti-Mormon bigotry.
[ cf Fox News whitewashes evangelical hostility to Romney's faith ]
Ah Yes, once upon a Time Mormonism was just one more Cult competing with the other Americanist Cults in America that wanted to be the dominant Christianist Cult that would field the largest Armed Militant Wing capable of Irradicating any form of Ideological Infestation as a Part of an Ongoing Process of Ideological Cleansing!!!

So why should we not get on with the Cleansing....

Or is the Sinister And Dark HORROR in all of this, not merely that Mitt Romney is a Mormon, but that by OPPOSING The Greatest Of All Military Leaders, EVER!!!! That he has come out in Opposition To the divine will of god and shown that he is not only Stabbing Our Valiant Fighting Forces In The Back but wants to so openly Destory Our White Christian America, as IF he were a Mere Papist!!!

If ONLY it were relevant in some way...

I should complement Hebisner for his unpleasant posting about the Seymour Hersh article in the New Yorker since he rightfully notes the scary part:
Iran-Contra was the subject of an informal “lessons learned” discussion two years ago among veterans of the scandal. Abrams led the discussion. One conclusion was that even though the program was eventually exposed, it had been possible to execute it without telling Congress. As to what the experience taught them, in terms of future covert operations, the participants found: “One, you can’t trust our friends. Two, the C.I.A. has got to be totally out of it. Three, you can’t trust the uniformed military, and four, it’s got to be run out of the Vice-President’s office”—a reference to Cheney’s role, the former senior intelligence official said.
[ cf HEY! KOOL AID! ]
But the real tragedy here is whether or not it is Even Worth Noting????

Do americans even care that there was once an american republic where the notion was that the rule of law was greater than any person....

Or are they happier knowing that Jesus Gave Us Nukes, so what ever happens is all a part of the Divine Will...

But The Administration Still Loves.....

Well, GOSH, golly, Scary Wary, seems that the previous couple of weeks wanking about the Iranians were the only persons, anywhere, ever, to create the super duper special weshel weapons of Wonder, that were so suppose to be the new escalation in the WhateverOnWhomever going on in ThatIraqiThingiePooh.... But as tristero, from Hullabaloo, points out, gosh, golly, Gee Whiz, the Noise Machine may well have been under Factual, bordering on possibly totally Fact Free:
Two weeks ago, the Bush administration organized an intelligence briefing for journalists in Iraq to demonstrate that Iran was providing weapons to Iraqi insurgents. According to the anonymous briefers, the weapons -- particularly explosively formed penetrators or E.F.P.s -- were manufactured in Iran and provided to insurgents by the Quds Force -- a fact that meant direction for the operation was “coming from the highest levels of the Iranian government.”

Well. A raid in southern Iraq on Saturday seems to have complicated the case. There, The Wall Street Journal reports (sub. req.), troops "uncovered a makeshift factory used to construct advanced roadside bombs that the U.S. had thought were made only in Iran." The main feature of the find were several copper liners that are the main component of EFPs. But, The New York Times reports, "while the find gave experts much more information on the makings of the E.F.P.’s, which the American military has repeatedly argued must originate in Iran, the cache also included items that appeared to cloud the issue."

[ cf TPM: Must Read ]
But there is a Brighter Side here. Besides the unpleasantry that the Chief of the Joint Chief Of Staff had not been privy to any of the Majikal Intel Coming out of the VP's Directorate Of Information, no one has yet pointed out how the Iranian Flying Saucers could easily transport whole factories from Planet ZorKon into Iraq precisely to cover up the technical details as to why Iran Hates America for wanting to restore the Iraqi Wetlands.

You see, everything is OK.

That CMH Crisis....

As some may be aware:
An unarmed helicopter pilot who flew through a hail of bullets to rescue 70 wounded Americans in one of the fiercest battles of the Vietnam War was awarded the Medal of Honor on Monday, 41 years later.

Retired Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall, 74, received the nation's highest military honor from President Bush in the White House East Room. The medal recognizes Crandall for his valor in repeatedly flying into enemy fire to bring in ammunition and supplies and evacuate the wounded.

Crandall completed 22 flights in a 14-hour period Nov. 14, 1965, most under intense enemy fire. His actions in the Battle at Ia Drang Valley were depicted in the 2002 movie ``We Were Soldiers,'' adapted from the book ``We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young.''
...
``In men like Bruce Crandall, we really see the best of America,'' Bush said. ``For the soldiers rescued, for the men who came home, for the children they had and the lives they made, America is in debt to Bruce Crandall.''

Crandall had a less lofty view.

``I'm so proud that I didn't screw it up,'' he said.

[ cf 41 years later, veteran gets Medal of Honor }
Don't get me wrong folks, what he did was heroic, but one does have to wonder why now?

Why 41 Years Later?

Is the Liberation of Iran REALLY going that badly that the president can not find current Hero's To Be Heroic About???? Or is there really something to:
Hours after touching down aboard Air Force two following what the White House has described as a extremely successful Asian trip, Vice President Dick Cheney was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by President Bush in recognition of his heroism in surviving an assassination attempt by a suicide bomber yesterday in Afghanistan. Mr. Cheney was recognized for his unprecedented valor and calm demeanor in the aftermath of the explosion which Taliban forces in Afghanistan have claimed responsibility for in an attempt to assassinate the vice president.

"'Is everyone okay, are we still alive?', These were the first words that came from the mouth of this self-sacrificing American patriot," stated President Bush. "After he made sure that he and everyone around him were okay, he insisted that the dead and wounded be taken care of immediately by the Afghan government." The suicide bombing apparently resulted in the deaths of 14 people including one American serviceman.

[ cf Cheney Unhurt in Bombing: Receives Medal of Honor ]
that is just a little to close for most folks to want to stand near?

Could it really be that Dubya is that DESPERATE to get past his emotionally traumatizing experiences with Barbarella, Queen of the Galaxy from ThatVietnamEraThingiePooh, that he, well, will just have to keep on Re-Winning It Until The Correct Results Come out like it really always should have been.

But Is It An american problem????

Some times I wonder which side folks are on?
The news just keeps on coming.

This time, Newsweek reported that between 500 and 1,000 OEF/OIF veterans are homeless and that "[military] families [are] sliding into debt as VA case managers study disability claims over many months, and the seriously wounded [require] help from outside experts just to understand the VA's arcane system..."

Last week it was the Washington Post. In December it was NPR. And at various times last year it was the Hartford Courant, the San Diego Union Tribune, The Oregonian or the Colorado Springs Independent.

Each delivered exceptional news coverage. Here's some of their best, along with an invitation to be the first to read the opening installment of a new series on combat PTSD appearing this morning on General Wesley Clark's Clark Community Network blog, Society and the Soldier.

[ cf What's Reporting Got to Do With It? Everything. ]
Here we are, once again.

Gosh, just like back in the Dark Horrible Time When Barbarella Scared Americans, and some of them understood the importance of Staying CONUS to maintain that high flying Options Trading, and knowing when to Short the Market, so that one would be in the right position to buy the Government of one's Choice.

So should Americans be concerned that some folks just did not plan ahead to be a positive Part of the Greatest Economic Miracle since the Miraculous Birth of the Greatest Military Leader, EVER!!!!!

Hum????

Or should we just remind americans that sometimes one has to just BELIEVE in the Invisible Hand of the Market and that the Divine Will has elected some to be saved, and some to burn in the Sulphourous Pits of the Lowest Realms of Gehenna!!!

Now don't get me wrong here folks, some of my best friends are Civilians, I mean my father even married a couple, but I sure DO NOT believe that gives those types any more Special Rights than the Divine Will offers up as a part of a package deal of compensations and under the table undeclared cash transactions.

small Ugly Thought.... ( that Plan ThingiePooh )

Uh, folks, does anyone actually know if the President EVER finished his homework assignment to have some sort of plan about ThatIraqiThingiePooh????

Or is he just hoping that no one has noticed that the StayingTheCourse Course, is still, staying, and The, and Of Course....

More Reasons To Bomb Canada ( The John Frum Crisis.... )

Hum... What if there were new religions that came into existence? Would they be useful as a part of the ongoing dialog about the Natural Phenomenological Nature Of Religion, and hence that it might be open to an over all analysis of basic evolutionary principles????

What if
One of the world's last surviving cargo cults is celebrating its official 50th anniversary on Tanna island in Vanuatu.
The John Frum Movement worships a mysterious spirit that urged them to reject the teachings of the Church and maintain their traditional customs.

The cult was reinforced during WWII, when US forces landed with huge amounts of cargo - weapons, food and medicine.

Villagers believe the spirit of John Frum sent the US military to their South Pacific home to help them.

Devotees say that an apparition of John Frum first appeared before tribal elders in the 1930s.

He urged them to rebel against the aggressive teachings of Christian missionaries and instead said they should put their faith in their own customs.

Or Should we just all step away from the historical Records....

And Start Bombing Canada to Make America American Again....

You Know, because we are in a most Holyiest Of All Holy Crusades....

More Doubts And Questions About Faith And Stuff...

Gosh, Golly, Gee Whiz, one has to wonder
Koiinkidenk Or Konspirakii
that we are hearing all of this Deep Seated Emotional Anxiety about James "Titanic" Cameron, and crew, finding the Final Resting Place, and bones, and family of Jesus, and, well, gosh, golly, Gee Whiz, Those Satanic Evil Black Robed Judicial Tyrannts Continue their Brutal And Repressive Nancy Pelosi Controlled Evil Voodoo Zombie Dust Bunnies Of Despair Rampage Though Our White Christian America:
The Supreme Court wrestled Wednesday with the question of whether taxpayers have the right to challenge the White House's aggressive promotion of federal financial aid for religious charities.

At issue is whether a Wisconsin-based group of atheists and agnostics have legal standing, by virtue of being taxpayers, to bring their complaint in the federal court system.

Taking one extreme, Justice Stephen Breyer asked a lawyer for the White House whether a taxpayer would be able to challenge a law in which Congress sets up a church at Plymouth Rock.

[ cf High Court Mulls Faith-Based Case's Merit ]
