Happy New Year!

To all of my regular, and irregular, Paranoid readers- I wish it to be a very joyous and prosperous New Year for you; nevertheless, I do ask that you remember, when that special election comes and you are voting from the rooftops, please, please vote early and often!



We can rebuild him. Better, stronger, faster!

"For now, the prototype arm fits just one man, Jesse Sullivan. This year, Sullivan demonstrated the device at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, where doctors are working to refine it. A faster, more durable commercial version should be ready by 2008, but the ultimate goal is a robotic limb that functions as well as, if not better than, its human analogue."
You know I had to play it...

And a woman's editorial that continually is so much better than the formers.

From Ilana Mercer:
The continent is the only "one where people have become poorer over the past two decades," despite billions in foreign aid. It is undeniable that no African nation has achieved a "level of prosperity significantly higher than existed under the previous, colonial regime. And political freedoms often diminished." Africa reached its zenith, sad to say, under colonialism.
So many others claim Coulter, and several others as goddesses, not me, for my money this woman has a head on her shoulders- and is not a camp skeleton...

It takes a village to raise a police snitch.

When Karenga was asked to distinguish Kawaida, the philosophy underlying Kwanzaa, from "classical Marxism," he essentially explained that under Kawaida, we also hate whites. While taking the "best of early Chinese and Cuban socialism" - which one assumes would exclude the forced abortions, imprisonment for homosexuals and forced labor - Kawaida practitioners believe one's racial identity "determines life conditions, life chances and self-understanding." There's an inclusive philosophy for you.

(Sing to "Jingle Bells")
Kwanzaa bells, dashikis sell
Whitey has to pay;
Burning, shooting, oh what fun
On this made-up holiday!

Coincidentally, the seven principles of Kwanzaa are the very same seven principles of the Symbionese Liberation Army, another charming invention of the Least-Great Generation. In 1974, Patricia Hearst, kidnap victim-cum-SLA revolutionary, posed next to the banner of her alleged captors, a seven-headed cobra. Each snake head stood for one of the SLA's revolutionary principles: Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumba and Imani ? the same seven "principles" of Kwanzaa.
A good editorial by her for a change...

Feeling Buggy

TOKYO - A big brown cockroach crawls across the table in the laboratory of Japan's most prestigious university. The researcher eyes it nervously, but he doesn't go for the bug spray. He grabs the remote. This is no ordinary under-the-refrigerator type bug. This roach has been surgically implanted with a micro-robotic backpack that allows researchers to control its movements. This is Robo-roach.

Unfortunately spammers are emailing the roaches when they broadcast to cell phones. "We had an incident last week where we sent a roach into an duct to test for an air leak, when we asked the roach to turn right, it responded by asking for our email addresses and offered to send us viagra in return." said Assistant Professor Isao Shimoyama, head of the bio-robot research team at Tokyo University.
Just step on the damn things...

"i HEART communism"

I was at a Hastings Book store this afternoon making some Christmas purchases when, after paying, I moved to the counter, right next to the exit, in front of the popcorn machine. I set my bags down, and turned to face the people behind me still in line so that they were not at my back while I was putting my sunglasses on.

In the middle lane was a large, young male, about twenty-four, roughly 6'4" and he had to weigh about 320 pounds. He was unshaven, his hair dark, tightly curly and scraggy, but back in a long ponytail with multiple red rubber bands. His attire was just as natty- denim shorts and a T-shirt that garnered the most attention- it was a bright red, originally. Now it was faded and had some cartoon character on it, but the words said it all:

"i HEART (the stupid little symbol) communism."

I slowly looked him up and down, and as he caught me doing so- it was then that I told him out loud from ten feet away, "Really? I NEVER did!"

His mouth came open and he started to mumble something so I told him Merry Christmas, paused long enough for him to say something, and then walked out. As I was leaving I noticed he was turning a bit red himself, particularly when everyone turned to examine him.

I had said my say...

The Chappelle Conspiracy

I have never watched this show completely, and have seen maybe three sketches from it, but when this was sent to me, I had to laugh my ass off:
On Tuesday, while watching an episode of the Oprah Winfrey show, Chappelle recalled being completely stunned when Winfrey turned to the camera in the middle of interviewing Tom Cruise and said "Dave Chappelle, you should be ashamed of yourself for airing that Niggars sketch on your show this week, I'm going to make sure you never work in Hollywood again."
You have to love the Internet...

Bill of Rights Day

Today, December 15, in 1791, the united States of America adopted the Bill of Rights- that was then comprised of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

These RIGHTS were written and ratified to confirm the fundamental rights of its citizens, and to limit the new government. However, as history has taught us, our elected officials truly do not care about their oaths of office, with one even reported to have said of the Constitution: "It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"

The united States has been often called the great experiment, and many have said that it failed. It was not designed to, but corrupted along the way by those who could not have founded it.

So, when the time comes, and voting from the rooftops is common, just remember that one of those RIGHTS was written to confirm this statement:
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Those men knew the day would come when this nation's citizens would need to start anew, and to honor them- head out the range, fire off a couple of hundred rounds and then keep your powder dry.


"It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"

I had a few minutes this morning to try and catch up on some blog reading and was at Clair Wolfe's Blog, when I found the link to the following at Capitol Hill Blue:
Bush on the Constitution: 'It's just a goddamned piece of paper'
Dec 9, 2005, 07:53

Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.

Several provisions of the act, passed in the shell shocked period immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, caused enough anger that liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union had joined forces with prominent conservatives like Phyllis Schlafly and Bob Barr to oppose renewal.

GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

"I don't give a goddamn," Bush retorted. "I'm the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way."

"Mr. President," one aide in the meeting said. "There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution."

"Stop throwing the Constitution in my face," Bush screamed back. "It's just a goddamned piece of paper!"
Click on the title or the embedded link above to read the rest of the post, and for further reading on this, here is a Google search of that statement.

Now, it seems that I am a Johnny-Come-Lately to this as others have posted on this already, but I will say this:

Listen up you stupid-ass frat boy, that "goddamned piece of paper" is what grants you your status. You are an ELECTED official and, if this is something you said, which I have little doubt that you did not, then you are a piss-poor one at that.

However, just like Clinton, and your Daddy, you are on what amounts to equal footing as so many presidents and other elected officials have been piss poor. However, to spit in our faces so, I have but one thing to remind you of:
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure," said Thomas Jefferson in a letter to William Stephens (November 13, 1787).
Please, please, please keep saying such things, as it shows the truth with which you, and our other supposed masters, hold us- we the citizenry, and it only moves the date at which this will happen in this country again, that much closer...

I missed a few myself, and fortunately, was able to go and get the ones I missed here. And for the December issue, go here.

Thank you Guns Magazine for fifty years, and here is looking to another fifty!

Finally, some truth from C.A.I.R.

Inside the Beltway

By John McCaslin
December 9, 2005

Leave it alone

Now its Muslims in America coming to the defense of Christians who want to call a Christmas tree by its name.

We turn to Cincinnati Enquirer and a newspaper editorial that calls the current debate about renaming Christmas trees "foolish."

"It is political correctness run amok, and it is unfortunate that the rhetoric over whether to change references of 'Christmas' to 'holiday' is even being considered," the newspaper's editors write. Actually, it's beyond consideration.

In Boston, a Christian group has threatened to sue after city fathers renamed their Christmas tree a "holiday" tree. Here on Capitol Hill, at least, smarter heads prevailed and changed the "Capitol Holiday Tree" back to the "Capitol Christmas Tree."

But our favorite quote is compliments of Karen Dabdoub, president of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Washington. She tells the Enquirer: "Who are we fooling? The Jews don't put up a tree for Hanukkah; the Muslims don't put up a tree for Ramadan. It doesn't take away from my celebration of my holiday for other people to celebrate their holiday."
Who'd have thunk it...

Christmas carols banned, but Hanukkah songs OK

District axes 'dogmatic religious statements,' yet suggesting Jewish themes more cultural

Posted: December 6, 2005
1:00 a.m. Eastern

Religious-liberty attorneys have contacted a Wisconsin school district that consistently forbids Christian Christmas carols from being sung in music programs but finds nothing wrong with Hanukkah songs.

According to law firm Liberty Counsel, the Glendale-River Hills School District of Glendale, Wis., has a written policy saying songs with "dogmatic religious statements" are strictly forbidden.
Does anyone recall Major Strasser's failed attempt at getting his officers to sing, but were drowned out by the crowd's choice in Rick's Cafe Americain. It seems more and more of those wanting to sing anything but true Christmas songs are getting drowned out too.

Oh, and in the end, we now what happened to Major Strasser...
