The Last Word (for now)

Wow-- time does fly, doesn't it? Two years ago today saw the humble beginning of this very humble site. I think I related the origin before... how my daughter Rachel and I came up with the idea after a somewhat acrimonious "discussion" with some family members who are stuck in the old "union democrat" paradigm. We decided that we had to make a difference and try to educate and help bring knowledge to the ignorant and all that. Two years...

In that time, I have spouted off on just about every subject under the sun. I have also met many great people who have shown me exactly what I needed to see: that I was not alone out here. I've been linked to by Michelle Malkin and Charles from Little Green Footballs-- giving this site massive waves of incoming traffic.

Someone with more time would have been in a position to press that advantage and really turn this into a big site. Of that, I am sure. Sadly, I was not that person. Time is the one thing I have been running thin on for a while now. For a long time, I posted lengthy entries and did more than just link to stories. My inner voice, though, finally won out and I returned to my one, true calling. Which brings us to today's post.

It is time for me to put this site on hiatus so that I can spend any and all extra time I have on my books. The impetus for this was my being struck by a bolt of... something from above. Oddly enough, it was Rachel with me again when I had the revelation. That was last December, and since then I have written and now published the story that had to be told. I had already finished my other novel-- one with a completely different subject, by the way-- but it had to take a backseat to this one.

It is called "Guardian Dear" and it is about angels and love and a whole lot more. I will be spending all my time now on publicizing this one and also finishing/polishing my other one... plus, I have about five more waiting to come out. Obviously, it is time for me to pursue this writing thing.

So... here we are. I want to say a huge thank you to those of you who have been with me all along. Also, to those of you who came along later and hung around. I appreciate all the comments and emails and good energy. I would love to stay in touch with all of you, so please don't be strangers. Oh, and I will probably find some time in the future to post something here-- so, if you want me to notify you of such happenings, then just send me an email now telling me so.

Finally, some shameless plugging. Here is the website I put up for the new book... complete with a link to the publisher's site for ordering a copy for that reader on your gift list. I think it will also be on Amazon and Barnes and Noble in a month or two.

Guardian Dear

Goodbye for now, everyone. Be well and stay motivated!

Semper Fidelis,

Refreshing Common Sense

Here's a nice little editorial on global warming insanity from IBD. I think it's only a matter of time before most people just stop listening to the enviro-nazis.

Tempest In A Teapot

I wonder if algore will read this. Things like this usually send him into a rage and bring him to lash out at the "traitors" who dare question him.

It can also lead to explicit threats.

Gotta love those enlightened liberals.



- could be time to break out the scare quotes.

I wonder what they were making in this "ordnance depot?"

I guess that is one batch of explosives that won't make it to Iraq to kill our people.

Explosion At Syrian "Ordnance Depot"

Just a standard "work" accident, I suppose...

So... they are upset that the Sheriff has the nerve to give people a hotline to call when they see criminals...?

You know, seeing what "outrages" a person can tell you a lot about them. For example, I'm outraged when I see people who are NOT Americans flagrantly violating our laws and abusing our social systems.

Oh, well... I guess we all have to respect one another's outrage... right?

Latino Groups Outraged Over Sheriff's Hotline


Howdy, Y'all!

Checking in from the dusty road... I'll try to post again tomorrow... plus, stay tuned for the big two-year blog-iversary post.

Hope you are all well and happily baking away in this summer of global warming!

Off Again...

...and again, and again.

I'm on the road again. Gone for a few weeks.

I will be checking in as possible. Also, I have a nice surprise coming up to co-incide with my two year anniversary of doing this site.

Take care of each other and stay tuned!

I Wish He Was My Senator!

Although this is amazing and wonderful to hear... it is also somewhat confusing. To hear a politician speak so plainly and truthfully and honorably... well, it's just strange.

Here is a good, old Kentucky Conservative-- the Honorable Jim Bunning-- giving it to the dumocrats and their surrender schemes.

[[ The ink isn't even dry on the President's plan and Democrats are already declaring it a failure. This type of defeatist strategy is irrational and unfair.

It is important to remember the dangerous effect our debate here in Washington can have on the message we are sending to our enemies. Make no mistake our enemies are watching us.

They are watching us and using our debate on the war on Iraq to strengthen themselves. Just this morning the new National Intelligence Estimate declared that the United States is at an elevated threat level. ...

But Democrats have already decided the surge has failed before it has had a chance to work. These are the same people who voted to overwhelmingly confirm General Petraeus and are now refusing to wait to hear his report in September.

This is the exact type of message our enemies want to hear. Well, I for one am working hard to send our enemies a message - the United States will not back down from this fight. I stand behind our troops and General Petraeus.

I promised General Petraeus that I would wait to hear his report this fall. And I intend to keep my promise. I urge my colleagues to do the same.

A Pointless Political Play

They're Going To Help Us

...whether we like it or not.

This is THE classic example of liberalism at its finest. I don't even know what to say here... except wow.

This is in the U.K., but we all know that our own moonbats love to get their inspiration from their British cousins.

Fat Tax Could Save Lives

God bless 'em... they just want to save lives with their taxes...

What's That Sound?

Oh, it's just the deficit plummeting... again.

Deficit Falls to $205 Billion

Hmmm... that's roughly half of what it was three years ago... and that is pretty much what Conservatives have said would happen as a result of those evil tax cuts.

Now the real fun begins: watching the liberals scamper away from this devastating fact.

How Do We Blame The Jews For This One?

The bad news is that islamic savages have killed fourteen Philippine Marines-- and beheaded most of them. The good news is that the bbc has managed to avoid the horror of this by finding ways to blame the victims. Oh, and they are calling these muslim murderering pigs "rebels."

Rebels Behead Philippine Troops

Now, how is the media and hollywood going to tie this one to Israel's oppression of the poor, innocent "Palestinians?"

Oboy, obama!

Well, even the magically wonderful barack hussein obama isn't immune to the death grip of the teacher's unions.

Apparently, he dared to hint that teachers should be competent and that rewards should be based on said competence. This never, ever goes over well with these people (just ask the Governator).

Still, obama did try to appease them by reminding them that he is against the evil practice of school vouchers and anything else the child-hating Conservatives support. You have to love how the dumocrats are so adept at pulling those puppet strings by invoking the evil right-wingers.

obama On Hot Seat With Teachers


What Now For Iraq?

As the anti-American forces in Congress prepare for another full-court-press against our military, the President seems to be ready to stand up to them again. The question is, how much of this can our war effort take? Answer: not much more.

It is not just my never-humble opinion that the dumocrats have seriously degraded our war effort. It is painfully obvious that they have given the greatest wartime intangible to our enemy: hope. As Ralph Peters says in his latest column:

[[ EVEN as our troops make serious progress against al-Qaeda-in-Iraq and other extremists, Congress - including Republican members - is sending the terrorists a message: "Don't lose heart, we'll save you!" ]]

Here's the column. The Quit Iraq Caucus

As stated above, the "surge" has yielded much progress... but the media and Congressional dumocrats will not succumb to that truth. Instead, they will continue to undermine our President-- and subsequently our military-- in every way possible.

Here is Rich Lowry with a good take on the truth of the current situation:

[[ The surge has succeeded in reducing sectarian killings in Baghdad and civilian casualties overall, but at the cost of increased U.S. casualties and without the Iraqi legislative accomplishments that were established as "political benchmarks." Those benchmarks shouldn't be fetishized. The reason that they were considered so important is that they were thought necessary to entice Sunnis away from the insurgency. Instead, the Sunnis have swung our way anyway, in reaction to al Qaeda brutality and to our strength. ]]

The rest of his column: The Fantasy Of Retreat

All in all, a fair, unbiased, and factually supported statement on this mess would be "it is clear that our military could win this war in fairly short order if only the media and Congress would stop abetting the enemy."

Now For Something Highly Technical

**WARNING: Global warming information ahead.**

Okay, here's one of the money lines:

[[ The amounts of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere have increased about 1.8% per year since pre-industrial times, rising from about 280 ppmv to 383 ppmv now -- the highest in 160,000 years. However, pre-industrial temperatures were much higher than current temperatures, when carbon dioxide concentrations were at the much lower 280 ppmv. ]]

This article could do more for the world than all the Live Earth concerts combined... if only people would read it. Yes, it is stuffed (and I mean STUFFED) with science-talk and facts and figures and charts... but it is also one of the most succinct and complete arguments for common sense that I have ever read.

Please take the time to read this and, for goodness' sake, share it. The next time you are in a "discussion" with one of our enlightened lefty friends, you can use this to wake them up. Although... I must admit that since they are mostly immune to facts, you would probably have better luck printing it off, rolling it up, and hitting them on the nose with it.

Anyway... here you are:

Global Warming and Solar Radiation

Ah, knowledge... freedom for us and poison for them.



More of this, please!

Yeah, And Bush Is The Evil Dictator

This kind of story always comes as such a surprise to the lefties. They just can't seem to wrap their little brains around the fact that their buddies in places like Cuba, Syria, Venezuala, and China are serious thugs.

Here's an associated (with terrorists) press story about China executing a government official for being corrupt. Let's deconstruct one especially mind-boggling sentence, shall we?

[[ His death sentence was unusually heavy even for China, believed to carry out more court-ordered executions than all other nations combined, and indicates the leadership's determination to confront the country's dire product safety record. ]]

In that one sentence, the writer expressed her shock that China would do this ("unusually heavy..."), tried to defend the communist regime with faint protective words ("believed to carry out..."), and then wraps up by deciding that it was a good effort by the regime to fix a serious problem ("...the leadership's determination to confront...").

It is surreal. Allow me to translate what she really meant:

"The valiant People's government had to perform this very rare execution to prove their ultimate committment to the People."

China Executes Ex-Food & Drug Chief

I know, I know... moral relevance. Abu Graib, Gitmo, Halliburton... it's all the same...

aclu: Still The #2 Enemy Of The State

In this time of global jihad, it's easy to forget another great threat to our freedom. They've been kind of quiet lately, but here they are with one of their signature moves:

aclu Sues City Over Jesus Painting


Now, if you haven't been watching Fox News' new comedy show, "The Half-Hour News Hour," you are really missing out. Here are some of their "commercials" for the aclu. They'd be much funnier if the things they are parodying were not true...

aclu Commercial 1

aclu Commercial 2

aclu Commercial 3

aclu Commercial 4

aclu Commercial 5

Here are a few other sites that speak to the truth about the aclu.

Finally, from our friends at Stop The ACLU:

They are truly despicable. Let's keep their threat in our minds and not give them any quarter.


Friday, July 06, 2007

Oh. My. Lord.

Well, this is the logical conclusion to al gore's environmental religion. I thought I had seen pretty much everything those numbskulls could throw at us... but I was wrong.

Human Greed Takes Lion's Share Of Solar Energy

Yes, they used the word "greed."

Remember this story of how humans are a "virus" on the planet?

I miss the good old days when they talked about how American greed was using all of the planet's resources, and America was a virus... now it's all humans. I guess America just wasn't evil enough for them... darn!

Enemies Within

These two stories are seemingly unrelated.

One is about left-wing extremist Mexican "activists" who want all white people to be deported to Europe so that they can have "their" country back.

The other is another tale of the usual whining from CAIR... this time about Conservative comments after the U.K. terrorist attacks. The evil Conservative's comments are "incitement," you see, and must be addressed.

What these stories show is that there are real, true enemies residing right here in our own country. Enemies who are fanatically committed to the overthrow of our government and our way of life. This is not my supposition... it is a very clear and very obvious fact. No sane person could argue the point in any lucid way... and yet...

Why won't the liberals see this? Why won't they join us in trying to protect our country from these threats? These are more than just rhetorical questions. These questions are the very heart of what is wrong in America now. We have a substantial portion of our population that does not see the above stories as a problem.

Comforting, eh...? I think I'm going to go and buy another gun tonight...

Hmmm... Think We Could Learn Something Here?


[[ After their military defeat by regular forces, the occupied population produced terrorists who engaged in bombings, sniping, poisonings, and other attacks on occupation forces and on the civilian population. They operated as irregulars in small terror units, armed with automatic weapons and bazookas.

Women and minors as young as eight participated in the terror attacks. They attempted to build weapons of mass destruction, using chemical poisons. They assassinated officials of the occupation regime. They had a special obsession with torturing and murdering "collaborators." They murdered hundreds of civilians, while thousands of the terrorists themselves were killed by the occupation armed forces. The occupiers responded to terror with brutality and force, sometimes using collective punishment.

A must read. Please do so now...
