Proof once again,  that liberalism  is a mental disorder.

From an article written by Lorne Gunter of the Edmonton Journal:

It never ceases to amaze me how many politicians can convince themselves that criminals who are prepared to murder or beat their victims, steal cars, rob banks and convenience stores, and deal drugs will nonetheless cower in the face of a new gun-control law and hand in their firearms.

That’s essentially what Toronto Mayor David Miller is proposing, though.

[…]

Speaking to reporters Monday, he said “I want a safe city. The truth is guns are too easily available, and if you talk to some kids in some neighborhoods, they tell you they want a gun to protect themselves.”

Are the neighborhoods where these kids live full of competitive shooters with registered firearms or full of gang members with black market guns?

Miller, of course, knows it is the latter, even as he acts as though Olympic sport shooters are running rampant on Toronto’s streets.

So by carrying anything of value on your person, you contribute to crime as well by this illogic.
Stupid is as stupid does.
What a moron.

I feel sorry for you Canadians.
At least here in the US we still have some semblance of Conservatism, although, not much.

When politicians continue to denigrate our troops in light of factual evidence that shows their success, then it must be a case of mis-speaking, no?

Nancy Pelosi has got to be the WORST ever liberal asshat that has ever parked their sorry ass in the halls of Congress.
This sorry excuse for a human being needs to go the hell away. She stinks up the place.

Get that bitch the hell out of Congress. censure, recall, whatever it takes. She should have been fired a long time ago.

Asked if she saw any evidence of the surge’s positive impact on her May 17 trip to Iraq she responded:

Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal. And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.

That’s what it’s all about.

America’s Best Days Behind Us?

National pollster Scott Rasmussen has a new survey out which indicates that 47% of respondents feel that “America’s best days have come and gone.” In contrast, only 39% of respondents feel that “the nation’s best days are still to come.”

With results like that, it’s no wonder that special elections are being won by the Democrats and the outlook for November is not good at all. People are looking for “change,” but a closer look at Rasmussen’s results shows that “change” may not exactly be what the media portray it to be.

In addition to asking survey respondents about the general state of America, Rasmussen also asked a number of questions to get a general feel of where people stood on the issues.

The national telephone survey found that 62% of voters “would prefer fewer government services with lower taxes.” Only 29% favor “bigger government with higher taxes.” So, despite the calls from the media and liberals to come up with a government solution for everything (global warming, price controls, and on and on), the majority of American’s do not believe in this approach.

In addition, 75% of voters “think people who move to America from other countries should adopt the nation’s culture.” Only 13% of respondents think people who move to America “should maintain their home country’s culture.” Once again, the media and liberals believe one thing, and the American people believe something else. While left-leaning elitists are calling out to “celebrate diversity,” the American people are shouting, “Embrace America!”

Iraqi Girl and Soldier

Memorial Day is not just a day for BBQs. Today is a day to remember the fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen.

Take a moment of time today and reflect on the sacrifices of our fallen Servicemen and women today. They are the reason that we are free.

On this day, I want to remember my friend MAJ Doug LaBouff. Doug died on January 7, 2006 at Tal Afar, Iraq, in a Blackhawk helicopter crash.

The following is from my website Tribute to the Armed Forces of the United States of America:

Doug was my last Platoon Leader. He came to E Troop, 2nd Squadron 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment in 1997. He was given the 3rd platoon, which I was the Platoon Sergeant.

Doug was a 1st Lieutenant when we met. He was a Military Intelligence Officer assigned to an Infantry platoon. This made it rather odd. This was done because the Regiment was short on officers.

Doug and I got off to a great start in our relationship as Platoon Leader and Platoon Sergeant. I had the benefit of having a 1LT, which means he has some experience in the Army, but I also had the good fortune to have a man that was willing to learn the ways of the Infantry by listening to his PSG. He was like a sponge!

After being together for over a year in 3rd Platoon, I moved up to the Regimental HQ due to a back injury.

We stayed in touch, which for me was easy to do. He moved back into a MI job as the Regimental Support Squadron S-2. After I retired in 2001, Doug and I remained close friends through the years. In fact he was my son’s Godfather.

We spent time together on a few occasions when he came home on leave, his family and mine. We enjoyed each other’s company immensely.

I am a better man for having known Doug and thank God that he blessed me with his friendship.

He is survived by his wife, Karen, and their two children, Cassidy and Doug Jr.

You will never be forgotten my friend.

Your sacrifice for this nation is the highest price one can pay for the freedoms that we all enjoy.

May God bless his family and keep Doug by His side.

Remember their sacrifice.

Go here now!

Don’t let these idiots in Congress get away with this BS!

Tom Harkin is an ass.

There is no other way to put it. Unfortunately, he has the right to say whatever he wishes and get a pass from the press.

He has that right, because of those that he denigrates. He was a former Navy pilot and has this type of attitude makes me think that he has a mental disorder. Then again, anyone on the left, has a mental disorder. It explains much.

Harkin should thank those military men and women (I will use the masculine from this point) that have decided that protecting the freedom of America is their number one goal.

Does Senator Asshat have any clue the sacrifice that the military professional endures for him? The career military man is one that must endure hardships of not only his chosen profession, but also those that are heaped upon the family. Separations, low pay, kids growing up with one or both parents out of the home for long periods of time that requires re-acquaintance upon return. There is so much more.

This is typical of the idiots on the left.

Villainous Company has a great take on this.

We Are America

What a cruel thing is war: to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.

…It is well that war is so terrible — lest we should grow too fond of it.

As odd as it may seem, these apparently contradictory quotations were written by the same man. But then Robert E. Lee, who led the Army of Northern Virginia, was far more subtle than the legend which survived him. His memory has oft been associated with a cause he would have found repugnant: that of slavery. And though he was not free of some of the attitudes common to men of his generation, one has only to read his writings to divine his thoughts on the subject:

So far from engaging in a war to perpetuate slavery, I am rejoiced that Slavery is abolished. I believe it will be greatly for the interest of the South. So fully am I satisfied of this that I would have cheerfully lost all that I have lost by the war, and have suffered all that I have suffered to have this object attained.

General Robert E. Lee, May 1, 1870

The worst RINO of them all? According to the article, he is. I don’t know; there is a lot of company for this asshat.

The Worst Republican Senator
By Quin Hillyer
Published 5/15/2008 12:08:02 AM

South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham is a flop. He pretends to be a conservative, but sells out conservatives and insults them while doing so. He pretends to be effective at reaching across party lines, but the only thing he effectively does is help the other party. He inhabits the Senate seat of Strom Thurmond, legendary for great attention to his South Carolina constituents, but Graham spends most of his time trailing behind John McCain like a valet as McCain criss-crosses the country in pursuit of the presidency. He called Ted Kennedy “one of the most principled men I’ve ever met.” In sum, in the words of conservative movement stalwart Richard Viguerie, “Lindsey Graham is part of the problem.”

What, for example, could possibly have possessed Graham, in April of 2006, to write an essay for Time magazine about the virtues of Hillary Clinton? He called her “a smart, prepared, serious senator.” She is “sought out by her colleagues to form legislative partnerships.” She has managed to “build unusual political alliances with…conservatives.”

Lindsey Graham tops the list for sure.
