They Did What?

Oh My God!!! Talk About The Most BRUTAL of All Stab In The Back Plot By The Radical Left Wing Anti-Military, Anti-War, Anti-American Clique of Shrill Hysterical Angry Radical Extremists:
Wiccans who served in the U.S. military will be allowed to have their faith's pentacle emblem engraved on government-issued tombstones and memorials under a legal agreement announced today with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Roberta Stewart of Fernley, Nev., one of the plaintiffs, had sought a pentacle-inscribed memorial plaque from the VA for her husband, Nevada National Guard Sgt. Patrick D. Stewart, who was killed in action in 2005 when his helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan.

"I have waited for this day for so long," Stewart said. "Today I have relief, comfort and happiness in knowing this a quest for religious freedom has prevailed."

Another Author Lost....

David Halberstam, the journalist whose acclaimed books included a towering study of the Vietnam War and a poignant portrait of aging baseball stars, died while heading to an interview for a new work.

The 73-year-old writer was killed in a car crash Monday while working on a book about the legendary 1958 NFL championship game between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants. He was on the way to interview Giants quarterback Y.A. Tittle on what was dubbed "the greatest game ever played."

Halberstam was riding in a car that was broadsided by another vehicle in Menlo Park, about 25 miles south of San Francisco, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and the cause appeared to be internal injuries, according to San Mateo County Coroner Robert Foucrault.

"The world has lost one of our greatest journalists," said Arthur Sulzberger Jr., publisher of The New York Times, where Halberstam won a Pulitzer Prize in 1964 for his Vietnam coverage.

Are YOU doing Your Part???

Some Folks ARE fighting Back AGAINST Evil
MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian teachers sprinkled cow urine on low-caste students to purify them and drive away evil, reports said on Saturday, in a country where millions of people remain oppressed at the bottom of the ancient Hindu caste system.

Upper-caste headteacher Sharad Kaithade ordered the ritual after taking over from a lower-caste predecessor at a school in a remote village in the western state of Maharashtra earlier this month, the Times of India reported.

He told an upper-caste colleague to spray cow urine in a cleansing ceremony as the students were taking an examination, wetting their faces and their answer sheets, the newspaper said.

"She said you'll study well after getting purified," student Rajat Washnik was quoted as saying by the CNN-IBN news channel. Students said they felt humiliated.

[ cf Teachers "purify" students with cow urine ]
WOW....

With a Cow!

And How!!!

Thank God, In AMERICA we do not have religious fanatics who would want to use their Religious Dogma to Impose Humiliation on Other Americans, simply because they are Religious Fanatics....

Or is that suppose to be the other way around, and hence, that we should be more supporting the Next Cho, so that Everyone WILL be freed from the evil of the Modern SeXularists who do not support the True Religion...

More Reasons To Massively More Deregulate, or Bong Canada...

Wow, we survived the Evil Liberal Assault on the Sub Prime Mortguage World, and now we are arriving at the next possibly most Coolest Wave of the New Age, New Wave, Dance Craze:
College students, many of whom go deeply into debt to pay for their educations, shouldn't have to worry about the financial advice they get from at least one source - college financial aid officers, who are supposed to be helping them find the best deal. But that long-held expectation increasingly appears naive.

In a still-emerging scandal, numerous college aid offices have been caught conspiring with lenders to carve out sweetheart deals that benefit everybody but the students.

The shady practices include fees to colleges to put lenders on their "preferred" lists; trips and other perks for financial aid officers; and valuable stock benefits for college aid directors.

[ cf Shady practices taint college loan business ]
WOW!!!

Maybe NOW more americans will back the Next Cho that The Divine Will Seclects, so that we can all get in on the Next Big Wave about why the Evil Liberal Academic World Of God Hating America Bashers must be stopped, since those sort of places do not Accept the Divinity Of Dubya, and we all know that if a Person Does not accept Dubya as their Personal Lord And Savior, they have no basis for morality and are merely mass murdering Maniacs engaged in Evil Liberal Things....

Oh dear, that might have sounded a bit too harsh, since of course, we all understand that the Divine Will accepts that at times one just has to kill the evil doing evil doers, whether or not one does it with the Welfare Stateist who are on the government payroll, or with paid professionals, or merely the committed Patriotically Corrector Than Thou, who may have hopped on the Old New Wave a bit too soon for most folks....

Or were we suppose to be more excited that the Imaginary Invisible Foot of the Free Market has found more sheep to sheer so that folks have a fatter cash cow.... and that Gosh, wouldn't it be great if we could expand this whole process out to include things like a Future's Market in Patriotism and TheoCratical Correctness, so that if a person were concerned that they were short on Patriotism or TheoCratical Correctness, they would be an Indulgence or Two away from Moral Purity....

You know the Hindu consider the Cow to Be Holy!!!

And in America what can be more Holy than a Cash Cow???

Why Do All The Comedians Support Killing Americans????

It is so funny now watching Rush Limbaugh try to restructure his "joke", since, well, gosh, he is so not sure that he has the stuff to back up his Game:
On the April 23 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, host Rush Limbaugh claimed "I was making a joke" when he said on his April 19 broadcast that Virginia Tech gunman Cho Seung-Hui "had to be a liberal, " and "it's a liberal that committed this act" before adding on April 23, "I do believe that it was liberalism that got a hold of this guy and made him hate things, professors and this sort of thing." Limbaugh also lashed out at Media Matters for America, claiming that he had made the comments about Cho "as a means of illustrating on this show how the words of conservative talk show hosts are twisted and taken out of context," before adding, "And sure enough, Media Matters fell for it hook, line, and sinker. They had it up all over the place."
[ cf Limbaugh claimed Media Matters "fell for" his "liberal" gunman "joke" "hook, line, and sinker ]
Gosh, Golly, Gee Whiz...

Does this mean that Rush has finally decided to get on the Big Bus and support Cho as the New Age, New Wave, Dance Craze for Christianist Terrorists "Taking It To The Enemy" by striking back at the Liberals????

Or is that a part of the core problem here, the NeoConClownCarCrew is no longer sure where they want to stand given all of their years of failed rhetorical Posturing....

War Is Murder???

Concept Time:
he U.S. military filed murder charges Tuesday against Omar Khadr, a Canadian who was 15 when he was captured in Afghanistan and sent to the Guantanamo Bay prison in 2002.

Khadr, now 20, also was charged with providing support to terrorism, attempted murder, conspiracy and spying. He faces a military trial at the prison in eastern Cuba under rules adopted last year and first used in March to try Australian detainee David Hicks.
...
The Toronto-born Khadr, the son of an alleged al Qaeda financial leader, Ahmad Said al-Khadr, was captured in July 2002 after being badly wounded in a firefight near Khost, an al Qaeda hotbed in eastern Afghanistan.

He is charged with throwing a grenade that killed Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer, 28, of Albuquerque, N.M., and wounded Army Sgt. Layne Morris, of West Jordan, Utah.
...
The murder and attempted murder charges stipulate that the acts were carried out "in violation of the law of war."

The wounded soldier and Speer's widow filed a civil lawsuit against Khadr and his father, who authorities believe was killed in Pakistan. In February, a judge awarded them US$102.6 million (euro78.2 million).
...
The U.S. Supreme Court in June struck down the previous military tribunal system at Guantanamo as unconstitutional. U.S. President George W. Bush subsequently signed into a law passed by Congress a new military tribunal system.

The high court is now considering a challenge to the revised tribunals. Some members of Congress have vowed to repeal the law that limits detainees' access to civilian courts.

This is GOING to get interesting....

What really makes a Killing In A Time Of Transferring The Tax Liabilities a "legitimate killing"????

Or is there the problem here that in the West there is this concern about waiting until kids are older to get them into the Game....

Or What?

The interersting part in all of this will be sorting out when it was that this 15 year old was shown to have been detained not as a POW but as some person of interest.... Since that would seem to be a first step in the process here... But oh yeah, that is right, it is still not clear if americans want to entangle american law in any of the OffShoredThingusOfPooh....

Or would this be a dangerous time to talk about 'militia' and are they still listed as legitimate armed combatants? Since, gosh, if we want to get all pious about the "sovereign nation" gambit, do we really want to blow up all of the games in Iraq and Afghanistan to cut off our nose???

Ah yes, if only these things were half as simple as folks would have wished that they could have been...

This Has A Down Side Somewhere....

but it is soooo not clear to me
Gunmen have attacked a Chinese-run oil field in eastern Ethiopia, killing 74 people.

An Ethiopian rebel group known as the Ogaden National Liberation Front claimed responsibility for the attack.

In a statement, the group says it completely destroyed the oil facility earlier Tuesday. It says it will not allow the exploitation of mineral resources in the region as long the people of Ogaden are denied rights to self-determination.

A manager with the Zhongyuan oil company, Xu Shuang, says nine Chinese and 65 Ethiopians were killed, and that another seven Chinese workers were kidnapped.

Ethiopian Information Minister Berhane Hailu told VOA the gunmen attacked and killed the workers while they were sleeping. He accused the Eritrean government of organizing and deploying the gunmen.

But isn't the USofA still more at War with China, than ever before, thus this Glorious Military Victory of the islamic extremists against marxists Revisionist Capitalist Roader Deviationalists a Most Glorious Of All Military Victories, EVER!!!!

Some days it is SOOO hard to keep track of which side whom is on, and why we have always supported they against them in the Most Holyiest Of All Holy Crusades, EVER!!

Why SHOULD the government Listen to the Brightly Painted Savages?

ah yes...
Jonah Goldberg has a fascinating piece in the LA Times this morning. Apparently, the American people are too stupid to be listened to:
HUGE NUMBERS of Americans don't know jack about their government or politics. According to a Pew Research Center survey released last week, 31% of Americans don't know who the vice president is, fewer than half are aware that Nancy Pelosi is the speaker of the House, a mere 29% can identify "Scooter" Libby as the convicted former chief of staff of the vice president, and only 15% can name Harry Reid when asked who is the Senate majority leader.

WOW...

Can we all just learn to get along, and Vote Cheney/Bush in 2008 just like Jesus would want?

Or are all these Evil Liberals simply on the side of Satan because they Hate America???
