Does Everything Become Rosie in January?
Wednesday, December 31st, 2008 | Author:

We have many of the “hope and change” zealots looking to the January inauguration as if some magical fog is going to immediately change the world the day the O’bama starts work.   Meanwhile, in the real world, we’ve already started to experience the backpedaling by the O’bama team… Set expectations so low at the surgery that if the patient comes out alive, it’s considered a success… As always, a great analysis from Victor Davis Hanson:

All the campaign talk of the Great Depression, a Vietnam-like war, and our shredded Constitution will now thankfully subside as the Obama administration assumes office and solves problems with conciliation, dialogue, and multilateral wisdom, rather than shrillness, unilateralism, preemption, and my-way-or-the-highway dogmatism. We will hear that by historical levels unemployment is still not that bad, that GDP growth is not historically all that low, and that deficits, inflation, interest rates, and housing starts are all within manageable parameters. “Depression” will transmogrify into “recession” which in turn by July will be a “downturn” and by year next an “upswing” on its way to boom times.

Living Will
Tuesday, December 30th, 2008 | Author:

Last night, my friend and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her, “I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.”


She got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.

She’s such a bitch

Liberal Jews – Part 10
Tuesday, December 30th, 2008 | Author:

More examples of those crazy f*#@ing Jewish liberals… A recent article in Bloomberg describes the military action against Gaza, and included the following:

Within Israel, some questioned the scope of the action, suggesting it was out of proportion to Hamas’s provocations.  “The military move was a mistake,” said Galia Golan, a political scientist at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya north of Tel Aviv. “It is very terrible, way beyond anything that could be justified and I don’t think it will make a difference.”

OK, I get it.  The Israelis should sit at the Gaza border and launch 50 rockets/mortars into the Palestinian population centers every day… Oh yea, let’s not forget that “to be fair”, the Israelis should change their school curricula to educate their children that the Moslems are the children of mules and sh$&heads… I almost forgot, in the interest of “proportional” response, we need to start signing up Israeli women to strap bombs to the bodies so they can blow up Palestinian children at the local restaurants.

Definition of Chutzpah – Part 1
Sunday, December 28th, 2008 | Author:

After the 9/11 terrorist act, do you recall any Moslems expressing dismay or extending condolences (don’t confuse it with their celebrations)?  Were there Moslems condemning the terrorists during the recent murders in Mumbai India? 

Well, I flipped open my browser to Yahoo recently and I saw this summary of lead-in articles.


It appears that the Moslems across the Middle East found something to protest: the Jews protecting themselves against the Hamas terrorists in Gaza.  You have to admit that the two articles with links immediately following are rather ironic: “Suicide bomber kills 34 at polling station…” and “14 children die in bombing at Afghan school…”   Evidently, these self-inflicted murders don’t do enough to stir the emotions of the Middle East Moslem.
