The Audacity of Conceit
Tuesday, March 31st, 2009 | Author:

You’ve heard it here first…  The new book from O’bama is called “Audacity of Conceit”.  It describes the most egotistical man alive in the last one hundred years with a Messianic Complex that can’t be beat.  While Communism was clearly a failure in the 20th century, and the best economists have noted that it’s difficult to control an economy, O’bama considers himself the know-it-all who can select companies that should be run by the government.

When he is not appearing on television reading from his trusty teleprompter, he is out hawking cars, insurance, and bank loans.  He and his sycophants consider him to be the smartest man in the world.  He has concluded that it is best for him to singularly decide “who shall live and who shall die”.  Another author has noted how O’bama has introduced the world to first-person Socialism

Classical Islam accepts there is a divinely ordained bond between the Jewish People and ‘the Holy Land’, say some scholars.

According to the Hamas charter, Palestine is an Islamic endowment “for all generations of Muslims until the Day of Resurrection” which no one may renounce. The Arab-Israeli conflict is seen as not just a political dispute but an implacably religious one. However, there are Islamic scholars who will tell you that this claim has no basis in the Koran: not only that, but the foundation text of Islam, in fact, recognises the special link between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel. “You will find very clearly,” says Sheikh Dr Muhammad Al-Husseini, “that the traditional commentators from the eighth and ninth century onwards have uniformly interpreted the Koran to say explicitly that Eretz Yisrael has been given by God to the Jewish people as a perpetual convenant. There is no Islamic counterclaim to the Land anywhere in the traditional corpus of commentary.”

Dr Al-Husseini is a British imam who teaches a course on the Koran as part of interfaith studies at the Leo Baeck College, the Progressive rabbinic college in Finchley, London. One of the texts he has taught is the following verse in the Koran (5:21), “O my people! Enter the Holy Land which God has decreed for you, and turn back on your heels otherwise you will be overturned as losers.” He examines this passage through the eyes of one classic commentator of the Koran, Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari (838-923), who says the remark is “a narrative from God… concerning the saying of Moses… to his community from among the children of Israel and his order to them according to the order of God to him, ordering them to enter the holy land.”

Pecans in the Cemetary
Sunday, March 29th, 2009 | Author:

Here’s a good one courtesy of Joe Knecht

On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.

‘One for you, one for me One for you, one for me,’ said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, ‘One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.’

He just knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.

Come here quick,’ said the boy, ‘you won’t believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls.’

The man said, ‘Beat it kid, can’t you see it’s hard for me to walk.’ When the boy insisted though, the man hobbled slowly to the cemetery.

Standing by the fence they heard, ‘One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.’

The old man whispered, ’Boy, you’ve been tellin’ me the truth. Let’s see if we can see the Lord.’

Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, yet were still unable to see anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought Iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord.

At last they heard, ’One for you, one for me. That’s all. Now let’s go get those nuts by the fence and we’ll be done.’

They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes ahead of the kid on the bike.

I am not Jewish, but…
Saturday, March 28th, 2009 | Author:

A great speech from Robert Murdoch, CEO of News Corporation…  A few extracts:

Over the years, some of my wildest critics seem to have assumed I am Jewish. At the same time, some of my closest friends wish I were…

MOST FUNDAMENTALLY, we see a growing assault on both the legitimacy and security of the State of Israel. This assault comes from people who make clear they have no intention of ever living side-by-side in peace with a Jewish state – no matter how many concessions Israel might make. The reason for this is also clear: These are men who cannot abide the idea of freedom, tolerance and democracy. They hate Israel for the same reasons they hate us.

But I am curious: Why do we never hear calls for Hamas leaders to be charged with war crimes? Why, for example, do we hear no calls for human rights investigations into Hamas gunmen using Palestinian children as human shields? Why so few stories on the reports of Hamas assassins going to hospitals to hunt down their fellow Palestinians? And where are the international human rights groups demanding that Hamas stop blurring the most fundamental line in warfare: the distinction between civilian and combatant?

IN THE WEST, we are used to thinking that Israel cannot survive without the help of Europe and the United States. Tonight I say to you: Maybe we should start wondering whether we in Europe and the United States can survive if we allow the terrorists to succeed in Israel. In this new century, the “West” is no longer a matter of geography. The West is defined by societies committed to freedom and democracy.

In the end, the Israeli people are fighting the same enemy we are: cold-blooded killers who reject peace, who reject freedom and who rule by the suicide vest, the car bomb and the human shield.

Against such an enemy, I will not second-guess the decisions of a free Israel defending her citizens. And I would ask all those who support peace and freedom to do the same.

Honoring the Murderer in Oakland?
Friday, March 27th, 2009 | Author:

You may have heard about a parolee that murdered 4 police officers in Oakland earlier this week….  well, believe it or not 60 people showed up at a rally in Oakland to “honor” the murderer.  The protest was organized by the Oakland branch of the “Uhuru Movement”, whose flyers for the march declared, “Stop Police Terror.”

Wow, this sounds eerily similar to those protests in the San Fran bay area in support of the Palestinians.   The people in that region of our country there have a really funky sense of logic…

Islamic Terrorist Kills 50 at Mosque
Friday, March 27th, 2009 | Author:

If these Moslem terrorists are willing to kill 50 of their own — during a prayer session, no less — what does that mean for us infidels here in the US?

The LA Times reports:

An apparent suicide bombing in Pakistan destroyed a mosque near the Afghan border today, killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 100, officials and witnesses said. Scores of people were missing in the bloodstained rubble…

More than 200 people were inside the two-story mosque at the time of the explosion, which sent the roof crashing down and blew out the walls.

Sleep Last Night?
Friday, March 27th, 2009 | Author:

Bed a little lumpy…?

Toss and turn any…?

Wish the heat was higher…?

Maybe the a/c wasn’t on…?

Had to go to the john…?

Need a drink of water…?

Yes.. It is like that!

Count your blessings, pray for them, talk to your Creator.

And, the next time when… the other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes,

Or you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be,

Or you’re served slightly warm food at the restaurant,

Or you’re sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you,

Or the shower runs out of hot water,

Think of them… Protecting your freedom!

The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute to our fallen comrades. Since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could think of doing that is by taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel.

We are proud to serve our country.

The attached photos were forwarded from one of the last U.S. Marine companies in Iraq. They would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the folks back home know that they remember why they’re there and that they remember those who’ve been lost.

Is the Dayton Daily News the next to go under?  My view is the DDN information is typically a day behind, and their opinion page reads like a rehash of the New York Times…

Is It Time for a New American Revolution?
Thursday, March 26th, 2009 | Author:

Are the “tea parties” an early indicator of the restlessness with the current direction of the Federal Government?  Is the populace growing tired of the narcissistic, stuffed-shirt, Manchurian President?  Are we sick and tired of the dysfunctional legislative branch in Washington?
