You're Either Wrong or Right

Today at the corner of 522 and 104, a bunch of anti-war protestors. These people really believe they enjoy popular support, and to some extent they do thanks to the fact that they are standing just a couple miles from the Seattle city limits. But their belief that most people are against the war doesn't come from anything real, but rather from what they believe. Opinions are nice, but as Timmy would say (and where is he... I haven't been a very good friend lately) they are irrelevant, because believing something doesn't make it true.

There is a right. There is a wrong. You can agree to disagree, but that doesn't make you both right. Finally, someone else gets this.

But never mind that. Bush and his enemies can both be wrong, but they can't both be right. Either the war in Iraq is a necessary effort to secure American interests by proactively engaging the clash of civilizations with radical Islam, or it isn't. And so on and so forth.

Yes, yes, yes! There is a RIGHT in this world, even if we don't know what that right may be. There is one reality... just because you believe in something different doesn't make it valid.

So ask yourself... what is likely to be real? Were there WMDs in Iraq? Seems not. Did the Bush Administration make up reasons to go to war so that they could have access to cheap oil? Is that really all that plausible? Or was the Iraq war fueled by bad intelligence and a rush to judgment... bad mistakes to make, but mistakes nonetheless? Seriously... common sense here people. Bush wasn't entirely right. Who among us are? But he has his feet firmly planted in the ground. His "enemies" are flying high in la-la land.

Howard Dean Thinks Cheney Should Not Remain VP

DNC chair Howard Dean believes that Dick Cheney should not remain Vice President because of the whole CIA leak scandal. Really?! Is Howard Dean actually THAT STUPID?

What does Dick Cheney currently do? He is the Vice President. His importance politically is minimal. Moreover, he is not going to be running for President in 2008.

Can you think of anyone who could replace him?

Isn't this a very, very bad idea? Dick Cheney is a pretty unpopular guy, if only because he is constantly attacked by the left, and he's not really the most charismatic person in the world. How about leaving the guy in office, instead of setting up a potential successor?

Or is it that people like Howard Dean know their words have absolutely no impact on the world? In that case, they can say anything they want, without consequence.

Outstanding Excellence in Our Public Schools

One of my biggest criticisms of the public school system is that many schools aren't able to handle diversity of students. The solution, for example, to kids with ADD/ADHD is to drug them up, rather than teach in a way that is more relevant to them.

But this story has to take the cake.

Most high school students eagerly await the day they pass driver's education class. But 16-year-old Mayra Ramirez is indifferent about it.
Ramirez is blind, yet she and dozens of other visually impaired sophomores in Chicago schools are required to pass a written rules-of-the-road exam in order to graduate — a rule they say takes time away from subjects they might actually use.

Given that these students are BLIND, shouldn't the schools already have someone who makes sure they can provide a curriculum that better meets the student's needs? I'm just asking.

Leftist Hate Slogans for the Next President

Assuming the next President is a Republican, the left will no longer have their usual anti-Bush slogans to throw around. One favorite is replacing the "s" in "Bush" with a swastika. The left also likes to compare Bush to a monkey, or call him "Shrub." The examples are numerous. But once Bush leaves office, who are they going to have to direct their hate at? No more Bush=Hitler. No more conspiracies about Halliburton. I'm afraid some of these people just might consider suicide.

So as a public service to the left, we've come up with some handy hate slogans to use against the next President, whoever he or she may be.

Bush does kind of look like a monkey, by the way. Regardless, here's some things for you to plaster to some signs and protest with.

For President Condoleezza Rice:
Condonazzi Rice
Condosleezza Rice
Aunt Jemima

Probably you should stick with Aunt Jemima because the other ones are pretty hard to spell.

For President Rudolph Guiliani:
Adolph Guiliani
Rudolph Guilinazi

Really this one was too easy.

For President John McCain:
John McCon
John McCrazy

I'm disappointed in myself for not coming up with something better.

For President Newt Gingrich:
Newt Gingrich
Do you really need to change it?

For President Sam Brownback
Sam Brokeback
Get it? Like he's gay. And if there's anything worse than a gay person, it's a gay Republican.

For President George Pataki
George Bush
You could just pretend George Bush is still President, so you can keep the passionate fire of hate burning deep inside you.

That's all I got. Maybe the left will get lucky and Jeb Bush will win. Of course, a Democrat could win... but not until they get their act together and start acting like fringe lunatics. Buh bye!

Charlie Sheen is an Expert on Physics

Charlie Sheen thinks we don't know the truth about 9/11. "I have a hard time believing that a fireball traveled down the elevator over 1100 feet and still had the, uh, explosive energy to destroy the lobby like it was described," Sheen says, adding "Hey, call me insane, but did it sort of look like those buildings came down in a - in a controlled demolition?" (See the video here.)

Sure, I'll call you insane Mr. Sheen. I know a 1100 foot fireball seems incredible to you, but that's what happens when your high school grades are so poor you get expelled right before graduation. While I'm sure finishing high school still wouldn't qualify you to speak on the physics of fireballs, it would certainly be nice to think we had SOME reason to trust your reasoning over, say, the President, who graduated from Yale AND Harvard.

Moussaoui Wants to Die

Apparently our buddy Zack Moussaoui offered to testify AGAINST himself because he doesn't want to grow old and die in prison.

...this testimony may be the firmest evidence the 37-year-old Frenchman of Moroccan descent hopes for martyrdom through execution...

HA! Sounds like he's afraid to spend the rest of his life rotting in some Supermax prison! Normally I'm all for the death penalty, but I say we let him live!!!


Wait. Unless that's what he WANTS us to think. Oh, great. I have no idea what to do now. I say we just kill him and let this guy take care of it.

Can I / May I?

You know what I hated? In school when you'd say "Can I go to the bathroom?!" And the teacher would say something sarcastic like "You CAN go to the bathroom, but MAY you go to the bathroom?" And then you'd have to say "MAY I go to the bathroom?" so you wouldn't wet your pants.

I'm glad that these teachers think proper grammar is important. But I can't imagine a more trivial use of language. I also don't understand how they are able to distinguish between Can I / May I but don't have the ability to determine that they shouldn't have sex with a 12 year old boy.

Sharon Stone is Delusional

Apparently somebody forgot to tell the people at that April Fools day is over.

SHARON STONE will direct BASIC INSTINCT 3 in Britain, the actress has revealed. The blonde star is keen to continue the franchise - following her return as CATHERINE TRAMELL in the recently released sequel - but wants to step behind the camera next time around. Stone, 48, says, "There's a script for the next part of the story - but I would like to direct it rather than star in it. "It will be filmed in the UK again as the setting is more intense and gritty."

Oh, I'm sorry? That's not a joke? To make another sequel, doesn't your movie have to, like, make money or something?

Nothing Happens When NBC Plants Muslims at NASCAR Race

From MSNBC (ironically):

NASCAR said it was “outrageous” that “Dateline NBC” targeted one of its race tracks last weekend for a possible segment on anti-Muslim sentiment in the United States....

NASCAR said NBC confirmed it was sending Muslim-looking men to a race, along with a camera crew to film fans’ reactions. The NBC crew was “apparently on site in Martinsville, Va., walked around and no one bothered them,” NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said Wednesday.

NBC will apparently be trying again this weekend in Texas. Over at, one reader suggests the Muslims ought to wear Jeff Gordon shirts to assure harassment.

Idiot Claims Fetuses Can't Feel Pain

Oh boy. An "expert" claims that a fetus can't feel pain... because it needs to be born and then learn what pain is after birth.

But to properly experience pain, the mind must also be developed, something which cannot happen until after birth. The mind permits the subjectivity of pain, said the U.K. expert, who has previously served as an unpaid consultant to Planned Parenthood of Virginia and Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, as well as the U.K.-based Pro-Choice Forum.

"The key thing is representational memory," Derbyshire explained. "If you want to discriminate pain from hunger, from vision, or from any other sensational experience, you need to be able to label it in some way, and that will come from interactions with the primary caregiver," -- in other words, after birth.

Hey, moron! Can you really equate the feelings of hunger or vision with the feeling of getting your body violently ripped apart? Even my cat can tell the difference, and he's exceptionally dumb, even for a cat. Although, I think he might have you beat, intelligence-wise that is.

I don't know if a fetus is life or if we should outlaw abortion or any of that, but I do have some advice for you. Shut up! You have spent too much time in your little "intellectual" world and not enough time in the real one.

Charlie Sheen Threatened to Kill Denise Richards?

Denise Richards filed papers today claiming that Charlie Sheen threatened numerous times to kill her.

Among her allegations: That Sheen abused prescription drugs after the 2004 birth of their first daughter, Sam, and told Richards "I 'better not tell anybody about his using these drugs and better keep it to myself.' I understood by these statements that (he) would physically harm me and our baby."

Richards also claims that, on the way to the hospital for the birth of their daughter Lola last year, Sheen placed a gambling bet by phone, and was checking his pager for the results as she was wheeled into surgery for her C-section.

Things turned violent on Dec. 27, 2005, according to the papers, when Sheen allegedly hit Richards's wrist and shoved her in the stomach after she confronted him about pornography Web sites featuring "very young girls" that he'd been visiting. She claims Sheen told her that "if I revealed anything about his lifestyle, 'You won't lay your head down at night.' I understood this to mean that he would kill me."

Several days later, she claims Sheen pushed her over while she was holding Lola and "said to me that he was going to have me killed."

So the guy is into (child?) porn, gambling, and drugs... but hey, I'm sure he knows his stuff on 9/11 still!

"Hey, call me insane, but did it sort of look like those buildings came down in a - in a controlled demolition?"

I don't know about insane... how about mentally ill?

Democrats Dumb Enough to Impeach Bush?

Apparently some little known provision allows state legislatures to call for the impeachment of the President. Illinois and now California are considering pushing for actual impeachment.



Well, let me mention first that none of the things that they are charging Bush with are impeachable offenses, nor are they even illegal. They are simply things that Democrats don't like. Well, you can't impeach the President just because you don't like him.

But let's just say you do. So you end up with... what... President Cheney? Durrrrrrr... is that better? Are the Democrats so short-sighted? Or are they so dumb that think impeachment means replacement by a Democrat.

The worst case scenario is that Cheney resigns, gets replaced by Condi Rice, and Bush gets impeached and we end up with President Condi for the next 10 years. Seriously, Democrats, are you THAT STUPID!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Have We Learned Anything From Columbine?

So this kid has been accused of plotting to kill 15 (or more) of his classmates at Rogers High School.

It seems like a lot of these school shooting plots have been foiled lately. That's good, but isn't the fact that they exist at all troubling? I don't know anything about this boy. His friends all say he was a nice guy... that maybe he had mental problems. Somehow his life became so horrible that he decided he would take himself out, and take his classmates with him. Or in the very least he contemplated it... it's possible he never really planned to go through with it.

How does our school system respond? They arrest him. Ultimately he's responsible for his own actions. But what's going on in our public schools? It's troubling. Why are kids today becoming more violent, more angry, more willing to commit unspeakable acts against their peers?

Maybe the one size fits all solution of high school isn't working. Maybe we need to look into alternatives. High school is four years of fun, provided you're good looking, or popular, or a jock, or a cheerleader. It's not so fun if you've got acne, or you're awkward socially, or you're not very good looking, or you're just plain unique. Maybe you're a girl and you're losing your hair. Maybe you spend your nights writing fan fiction. Maybe you're totally in to binary lifters.

Or maybe you like guns. Maybe your dad physically abused you. Maybe your mom abandoned you when you were young. Maybe your uncle molested you. Maybe you don't even remember. Maybe you like guns because they give you power. They give you the power you never had as a child. Maybe it feels good to have a gun in your hand, to hold in your hand sheer deadly force. Maybe you're full of rage. Maybe you fantasize about taking out the very people who make your life so miserable. Maybe you wish you could kill them. Maybe you'd never do it.

Maybe you're Dylan Klebold. Maybe you're Eric Harris. Maybe you're Kip Kinkel. Maybe you're a psychotic raging killer. Or maybe going to a school filled with people who would tease and taunt you... maybe that wasn't the best idea in the world. Maybe the problem isn't you. Maybe it's them.

I don't know. I don't even pretend to know. I'm just saying... maybe. Maybe our public education system is seriously broken and we need to start taking the problem seriously instead of whining about school vouchers and hiding behind teacher's unions.

What do you think?

Stephen Colbert Blasts Bush Administration! Ha ha ha.

So Stephen Colbert "blasted" the Bush Administration in his speech at the White House Correspondent's Dinner. "This performance will soon be legend."

Seriously? Do people think this is funny? Because even the lefties making up the audience didn't seem to think things were very funny. The President himself got a lot more laughs. Seriously, nobody seems to be enjoying this. The second part is even less funny. Geesh.

Impeach Cheney First?

This dude has a great new idea. We should impeach Cheney first, then impeach George W. Bush. I don't really know what we are impeaching them for... I guess just cause we don't like them.

Seriously, though, I guess the reason the left thinks Karl Rove is a genius is because they are so darned STUPID. Once again, let's consider the possibilities here. Who would be Vice President if Cheney were impeached (or resigned before impeachment?) One likely possibility is Condi Rice. Who would then be in a position to take the Presidency either after a Bush impeachment (which would honestly fail, people) or during the 2008 elections? That's right, Condi Rice. Who is the only woman who could beat Hillary Clinton? If you guessed Condi Rice, you are correct!


And why do we want to impeach our President in the first place? Here's some of the reasons, according to a book called "The Case for Impeachment"

It's time for the American people and Congress to act. With so much at stake, we have a president whose administration stands out in its criminality and disdain for the rule of law. The Case for Impeachment explains the legal history and grounds for impeaching George W. Bush and brings forth more than a half dozen articles of impeachment the likes of:

*Lying and inducing Congress and the American people into an unjust war.
*Allowing his friends and business cronies to profiteer off the war in Iraq.
*Authorizing torture and rendition of prisoners of war and suspected terrorists--a complete violation of the Geneva Conventions, a treaty the U.S. has signed and is therefore part of our law.
*Stripping American citizens of their Constitutional rights--holding people with no charge, wiretapping them illegally, offering them no trial, and never allowing them to face their accusers.
*Failing in almost every way possible to defend the homeland and our borders.

Hard hitting and persuasive in its argument, The Case for Impeachment will be one of the most talked-about political books for the pathetic remainder of the Bush Presidency.

Huh. The standard for impeachment is very clear. The executive must be accused of "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." None of these accusations meet that criteria.

Lying is not an impeachable offense I mean, if that was so, wouldn't every politician be impeachable? And that's only if you believe that Bush purposefully lied to go to war.

Allowing your friends and "cronies" to profit is impeachable? Once again, no.

Stripping American citizens of their constitutional rights? Might be wrong, if you believe this is indeed happening, but not a crime.

Violating the Geneva Conventions? You might have a case for this, but not a very strong one. Furthermore, anyone who isn't a raving looney would call our treatment of prisoners and terrorists extremely fair. Oh, yes, I know, Abu Ghraib. Did Bush authorize those events, though? Did he have anything to do with them? Does he have control over what individuals in our armed forces do? Yes, the responsibility ultimately lies with the Commander-in-Chief, but that's why the people involved were punished, and why we are so careful with our treatment with these prisoners. Seriously.

Finally, failing in every possible way to defend our homeland and it's borders? What?! First off, this almost a complete contradiction to the previous two charges. Second, how? How has our homeland not been defended? Have you seen any terrorist incidents within the United States since September 11th, 2001?

These people are fringe lunatics who are so out of touch with reality that they actually believe impeachment is a possibility.

NEWSFLASH: Impeachment would be completely unsuccessful, period. A Republican Congress isn't going to go along with it, and despite the left's fantasies, the Congress with still be in GOP control after 2006, even if they lose a considerable number of seats.

Reality-based community... riiiiiight.

The Truth About the May 1st Immigration Marches?

If You Think Bush is Guilty of War Crimes, You Are Delusional

Surely this article at Daily Kos was meant to fan the flames of outrage... after all, the reason anti-Bush protestors hold true to their beliefs is because they just know better than we do... they know more than we do... they have a better grip on reality than we do... right?

May 10: Judge Timothy McGinty incarcerated an activist with World Can't Wait--Drive Out the Regime in the psych unit of the Cuyahoga County Jail in downtown Cleveland, where she now sits for an indefinite period of time.

The anti-Bush left isn't very happy.

Terry Gilbert, one of Carol's attorneys said, "This is Gulag stuff--saying that people who are dissidents are crazy." He said that in his 33 years of practicing law, he has never seen anything like this.

But wait a second... the problem isn't that these people dissent. It's that they truly are delusional... they believe that George W. Bush is a criminal and should be impeached in the same way that the crazy guy in the park thinks the voices are talking to him. These people are out of touch with reality... what's wrong with calling a spade a spade here? The crazy guy in the park might think George W. Bush is a war criminal too, but that doesn't make him any less crazy.

The nuts keep getting louder and louder, too, especially with Bush's poll numbers so low. They seem incapable of understanding that low poll numbers don't mean people believe Bush should be impeached, or that he's a criminal, or that we went to war for oil.

See, normal people think George W. Bush isn't doing a good job. Normal people on the left think that he isn't, for example, being a good steward of the environment. Or perhaps they aren't happy with his stance on abortion, or on the creation/evolution debate. Those things are fair.

Normal people on the right aren't happy with the increasing size of government, and the abandonment of conservative principles by the Bush administration.

Normal people everywhere are unhappy that they're paying $3.19+ for a gallon of gasoline. They're unhappy about the cost of housing. Maybe they're unhappy about the cost of health care or they've been confronted by the possibility of a company outsourcing their job.

I don't know... I do know that normal people aren't convinced that George W. Bush is evil. They don't believe he is a war criminal. They don't believe that Bush lied in order to get more oil at the cost of thousands of American lives. This IS delusional thinking, and people who are delusional in this way either get ignored or they get locked up in a mental institution. Instead we are expected to listen to these people? I don't think so. I prefer my world of sanity and reality, thank you... you know, the one where Ohio voted for George W. Bush by a WIDE margin? Geesh.

Isaiah Washington Is Not a Homophobe

But the people who fired him are racist, and that's one of the reasons he was fired.

"Well, it didn't help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn't a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time. I didn't speak like I'd just left the plantation and that can be a problem for people sometime," he said.

"I had a person in human resources tell me after this thing played out that `some people' were afraid of me around the studio. I asked her why, because I'm a 6-foot-1, black man with dark skin and who doesn't go around saying `Yessah, massa sir' and `No sir, massa' to everyone?
