North Korea Apes Professionalism

North Korea sentenced two U.S. journalists to 12 years of “reform through labor” for charges including an illegal border crossing, stoking tension with the Obama administration after detonating a nuclear bomb last month.

Euna Lee and Laura Ling were found guilty of the “grave crime they committed against the Korean nation,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency said. The Central Court verdict was announced after a four-day trial ended today.

[ cf North Korea Sentences U.S. Journalists to 12 Years (Update5) ]
Yes, yes, Yes. It looks like the typical PsuedoCon Laundry list of nativist concerns about illegal aliens engaged in the Thot Crimes of liberalism and Anti-State Agitation.

But that should not allow North Korea off the hook as a part of the evil IranqIstanian Nations who are Liberal Front Organizations of the Obamanation!!!!

Radical Judicial Activists On The Bench Stab Troops In Back!

How Shocking
In a closely watched case involving the confluence of justice, politics and money, the Supreme Court ruled for the first time that the Constitution can require an elected judge to step aside in a particular case based on campaign spending in state judicial races.

In a 5-to-4 decision released on Monday, the high court found that the circumstances surrounding Justice Brent D. Benjamin of the West Virginia Supreme Court and a lawsuit involving the Massey Energy Company, his major campaign contributor, were so “extreme” that there was no question that Justice Benjamin should have disqualified himself.

Because 39 states have legal systems in which judges are elected, the outcome of the West Virginia case has been eagerly awaited. But whether Monday’s decision will bring clarity or chaos to the state courts, or something in between, was a point of bitter disagreement between the high court’s majority and dissenters.
...
The Campaign Legal Center, which describes itself as a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working in the areas of campaign finance and elections, political communication and government ethics, called Monday’s decision “a welcome result for anyone interested in ensuring the fairness and integrity of the judicial decision-making process.”

“It is surprising that four justices could muster a dissent given the particularly appalling set of circumstances that gave rise to this case,” the center said in a statement.

[ cf Justices Tell Elected Judges Not to Rule on Major Backers ]
Be Reasonable. Who can not see the blood drenched cudgle of Communist Armed Aggression here?

Clearly by disallowing the Free Market in Freedome And Justicee, it is clearly a Main Force Assault on The Freedome Needed to make the Department of Defense the Very Profit Center Of Freedome that will end the jack booted repression of Welfare Queens!!!

Clearly ONLY as we free Justicee From The HORRORS of the Socialist Agenda Of Welfare Statist Reactionary Revisionists can we see the new day in america dawn again as it should have been, if it had not been for the horrors of the radical left wing Reaganites!!!

Are YOU doing YOUR Part to FREE the DOD from the shackles of Communist Repression of Welfare Statists???

Bad Book, do not Read, it hates The Guacamole.

Idiot America by Charles Pierce. I am about half way through and NOT ONCE has he mentioned the Clearly Obvious, common sense approach about how The Argument from Divine Comedy mandates that we MUST accept the divinity of Dubya, or the slippery Slope of Communist National Socialism will destroy the freedome of America and Deprive Us All of the Economic Miracle that can only through the Military Victory of Privatizing the DOD as the Profit Center Of Freedome.

Which makes me worried that this Charles Pierce Fellow must be one of those radical left wingers who hates freedome, religion, our white christian america, and the reasoned discourse that comes with accepting Dubya as your personal lord and savior.

Although, it is really interesting how he puts together a well reasoned argument for the roll of the Crank in American culture, as the ones willing to take the time to hack on the popular ideology of the age, and to take ideas where they go, whether or not they ever become popular or profitable ideas.

If anything, one of the grand tragedies of the current mass culture is the loss of the True Crank, in favor of the mere psuedo-cranks who have sold out and become mere pimps for ill thot through ideas.

So baring the obvious parts where it must clearly be stabbing our troops in the back by failing to recognize the NEEDS of a WarPresident - the book itself is well worth the fun little romp. Fron the entree of the differences between Thurough Bred Racing Poofter Diansours, who wear woosy little eastern saddles, because they are manifestation of the GayHomoZeXualMarriageAgendanistaIsm of the radical left wing of the Intelligent Design Kabal of Unbelievers who are merely subliminally Pimping their Massive Capitale Gains Taxes.... through to the last part of his sad and tragic failure to become one with the True Amercan Way Of life, freeded from the HORRORS of the reality based community!!!!

Are YOU doing YOUR Part to make the DOD the profit center of Freedome that it can be?

Oh yes, I am hoping that at some point he will address the need to limit combat epistemology to only Those Whom Gaod Has Elected!

Liberals Stab Troops In Back With Their Hatred Of The Guacamole!

I therefore believe:
  • That it is past time for you to seek from the Congress for authority to guarantee the debt of states that, in response to the current recession, (a) seek to conduct their own state-level fiscal expansions, and (b) devise plans and strategies for the long-term repayment of the debt the federal government guarantees that the Secretary of the Treasury certifies as prudent and sustainable.
  • That it is time for you to seek from the Congress an amended Budget Resolution: to include in this year's forthcoming Reconciliation process an additional $500 billion of federal aid to states, distributed per capita and conditioned on their maintaining effort at the provision of public services--on their not repeating the mistake of Herbert Hoover of cutting government employment and spending in a downturn.</i>
[ cf Fiscal Policy in the Second Half of 2009 ]
Where is the Call for TOTAL MILITARY VICTORY over the economy!

Clearly as long as Liberals FAIL to demand that the Evil Obamanation make the Department Of Defense the Profit Center Of Freedome! None will be able to sleep safely knowing that the Socialist Welfare Statists are destroying our White Christian America with their Hated MarxistNationalSocialistPhallangistCommmunistIslamoCryptoZionism!

Are YOU doing your part to make america, american?

Liberals Seek To Destroy America with Their Hatred of the guacamole

Neil Sinhababu calls for the Revolt of the Moral Philosophers:
...
In any event, this is the kind of thing we ought to be concerned about, both as citizens and as philosophers. While ideas from other parts of academia can't get out to the public, economists are convincing people of ridiculous theses in moral and political philosophy that their research doesn't even support. (It probably helps that widespread social acceptance of these theses is favorable to the interests of very wealthy people.) I'm not really sure what we can do about the spread of bad political philosophy through economics 101, but there's got to be something.
He is responding to Matthew Yglesias:
[A]s Brad DeLong pointed out yesterday, economists’ protestations that they’re doing value-free social science actually embeds an implicit idea that “that shifts in distribution are of no account–which can be true only if the social welfare function gives everybody a weight inversely proportional to their marginal utility of wealth.” In other words, under guise of eschewing values, economics has adopted a philosophical value system which says that the well-being of rich people is more important than the well-being of poor people. ...

I do think that these big ideas matter.... They’re enormously important in terms of setting the terms of political debate, in terms of influence what’s considered “possible” and what kinds of people have standing to have their views taken seriously. Building a better world ultimately requires getting people to understand that both the empirical and philosophical underpinnings of America’s free market society are much weaker than is generally understood. That doesn’t mean these questions will ever be debated by politicians at a live town hall. But it does mean trying to press a better understanding of these issues on the mass elite who set the tone for much of American political life.
If any of those fighting on the anti-economist side of this disciplinary war want to contact me to ask me to serve as a spy reporting to them the plans of the inmost secret counsels of the economist, the password is "swordfish"...
[ cf This Means Interdisciplinary War! ]
Well....

Who knows, we might have some fun studies while we await the complete collapse of western civilization!

Clearly as long as we allow people to espouse unpopular ideas that are not moving Units, there is clearly no truth to their position, since without moving units, there are none who own them, and thus can be in a position to sincerely truly believe the positions that they were sold as Truthier because the sellor is a well known personality who moves units! And therefore is not one of those failed academics who has been sucked into the mind Numbing HORRORS of the Evil Acadmic so called reality based community that does not understand the clear and clarion calling compelling arguments that ONLY as we free the DOD to be the True Battle Bastion Of all Mothers of Profit Centers can we move the sorts of units that will help everyone support the true freedom that can only come from the Profitability Of the DOD as the One True And ONLY Profit Center!

Anything less and the terrorists rebrand...

{ you remember back in the evil dark days when merely engaging in Crazy Talk would get you tossed into Belvue, but now if it moves units, it gets you a Talk Show.... }

How Far We Have Come

[1] For example: William F. Buckley:
From National Review's Archives: 8/24/1957: [L]et us speak frankly. The South... want[s] to deprive the Negro of a vote... [because] the White community merely intends to prevail on any issue on which there is corporate disagreement between Negro and White.... The central question... is whether the White community in the South is entitled to take such measures as are necessary to prevail... in areas in which it does not predominate numerically? The sobering answer is Yes.... National Review believes that the South's premises are correct.... The axiom on which many of the arguments supporting the original version of the Civil Rights bill were based was Universal Suffrage. Everyone in America is entitled to the vote.... That, of course, is demagogy...

[ cf Hey! National Review! Puerto Rico Is Not in Asia! ]
Well, thereyou are.

Radical Hard Left Wing Extremists attempting to mindlessly Impose their Doggeral Demagogy of

is still a hard line agenda of the radical left - and is still being gloriously defeated by the Total Military Victory of Creating the Privatized Total Profit Center of the Department Of Defense, that is everywhere the Mission Accomplished Dance of those who really matter, and understand the troo Freedome of

just like it says in God's One True Liberal Free Bible.

Are YOU doing your part to Free The Freedome of the Department of Defense as The True Profit Center?

Speaking Of That Phoney Vet Problem...

Hum.... what if dear old Rush Limbaugh missed the mark?
The thick-muscled man with close-cropped hair who called himself Rick Duncan seemed right out of central casting as a prop for a Democratic candidate running against Bush administration policies last fall.

A former Marine Corps captain who suffered brain trauma from a roadside bomb in Iraq and was at the Pentagon during the Sept. 11 attacks. An advocate for veterans rights who opposed the war. An Annapolis graduate who was proudly gay. With his gold-plated credentials, he commanded the respect and attention of not just politicians, but also police chiefs, reporters and veterans advocates for the better part of two years.

Yet, except for his first name, virtually none of his story was true. In reality, he was Richard G. Strandlof, a charismatic drifter with a history of mental illness and petty crimes who had moved from Montana to Nevada to Colorado, assuming different names and identities along the way.
...
The tale of how Mr. Strandlof managed to fool so many people for so long says much about the power of veterans in Colorado, a swing state with numerous military bases. Politicians who now shun him were eager to have him by their side a year ago, no questions asked. Antiwar groups like VoteVets.org embraced him as a valued spokesman. And real veterans buried doubts about him out of respect, they said, for his alleged service and injuries.
...
In the interview, Mr. Strandlof said he became fascinated with the plight of veterans after meeting a Vietnam veteran in Nevada several years ago and began obsessively studying the Internet and talking to veterans.

“I would ask them, ‘What is your story? How do you feel?’ ” he said. Over time, he said, the persona of Rick Duncan emerged and grew stronger with each telling.

[ cf A Deception, and a Reluctance to Ask Questions ]
Hum....

Which slippery slope did folks wax and ride?

Clearly this sort of problem starts with people learning about the military and stuff...

So, if you meet someone who is learning about the military and stuff - turn them over to Internal Security Forces, since we know that this is the first step to phoney vet syndrome.... Or becoming a defense Contractor....

Remember, Only Military Trained And Qualified Personnel should be allowed access to Combat Epistemology!!!
