Reid Supports the Troops Who Lost the War

by Scott Ott for ScrappleFace · 222 Comments · · Print This Story Print This Story

(2007-04-20) — Attempting to clarify yesterday’s statement that the war in Iraq is “lost“, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today that he “supports the troops who lost the war.”

In an audiotape recorded from an undisclosed location and released through Al-Jazeera TV, Sen. Reid said, “The troops who lost the war should hold their heads high, because not everyone can be a winner, and they gave it a good try.”

CIA analysis of the tape indicates the voice is “almost certainly” Sen. Reid’s and that references to recent events show that the Democrat leader may still be at large, in good health and “substantially in charge” of his network of Democrat senators.

On the tape, Sen. Reid also said, “It’s not the fault of our troops that they represent an evil regime, or that they wear the uniform of the nation viewed by many as ‘the Great Satan.’”

The Nevada Democrat said he looks forward to welcoming the troops home, so that many of them can “lay down their weapons and return to the world of decent and honorable work.”

    Shelly, from the last thread: Alec Baldwin did what???

  • 3 Shelly // Apr 20, 2007 at 8:13 am

    Just left this on the previous thread…

    If you go to Michelle Malkin’s site and scroll through the many military denouncements of Reid again aiding the enemy, you can find a petition to rename that VT hall after the heroic holocaust survivor that sacrificed himself for the safety of his students.

    Also, Happy 20th Birthday Ms. RW!!! ;-)

    cat, Drudge has the tape if you want to listen to the entire thing, but Alec Baldwin left a message for his eleven year daughter swearing and calling her a “thoughtless little pig.” His visitation rights have been temporarily suspended, pending further review. The man has serious issues.

  • 5 Shelly // Apr 20, 2007 at 8:18 am

    On the other hand, maybe he was laughed at in school. That would certainly justify his behavior.

  • 9 TouchyFeely // Apr 20, 2007 at 8:54 am

    If you are an officer in the iraqi army or police, and al-qaeda representatives are wispering in your wife’s ear or your cousin’s ear “give us your troop movements or we’ll kill all your relatives once the US pulls out,” you’ve got to listen to them. They will find all manner of ways to compromise the war effort.

    Reid’s comments (and those of all Dems) have and will cost American lives. They are ruthless opportunists. Ruthless, conscienceless killers of Americans.

  • 12 boberinyetagain // Apr 20, 2007 at 9:01 am

    Touchy, it would not appear that the threat you mention has much to do with the troops staying or leaving, it’s happening right now and, at least according to this mornings paper, we are still there.

    3) … when I denigrate their mission, calling it illegal and unjust.

    4) … when I sound more like the enemies against which they fight than I do my own countrymen who truly do support the troops and the mission.

    5) … when I use the body counts of American soldiers to crow about what a failure the whole war on terrorism has been.

  • 23 Shelly // Apr 20, 2007 at 10:03 am

    boberin, thanks for the news flash that the Bush administration set up the VA. I was under the presumption that it was older than that. Oh, and don’t forget:

    “When we deny funding to the troops knowing that it will lead to the longer deployments, less training and less equipment, which we’ll pretend to blame on Bush despite our own traitorous actions.”

    Harry Reid is having a tough week. First he denounces SCOTUS for upholding a law that he voted for, then he goes his furthest yet to endorse Al Queda. He’s a danger to himself and our troops, should he be detained?

  • 24 Darthmeister // Apr 20, 2007 at 10:04 am

    Yes, I, too, found it quite heartwarming when Reid agreed with the Islamofascists that The United States of America is the great satan.

    What a low-life piece of garbage that man is.

  • 27 Darthmeister // Apr 20, 2007 at 10:22 am

    Way to go, bober. So Bush “set up” the VA, eh? It’s always Bush’s fault is your default mode isn’t it? But you’re right, I forgot the most important proof of one’s “patriotism” is mechanically intoning IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!

    In World War II you stayed in theater until the job was done. There were units who fought in the North African deserts, in Italy and then post-Normandy France and Germany. There was no tour of duty. If you weren’t wounded too severely (like having a leg or arm blown off) they would patch you up and put you back on the frontline. Damn that warmonger FDR. There was a reason they were called the greatest generation, THEY DIDN’T QUIT OR SAY THE CAUSE WAS LOST even when things were going badly. Thank God there weren’t more critics like you around during the fight against the Nazis and the emperor-worshipping Japanese fascists.

    BTW, The Civil War was even worse. There were regiments who fought throughout the entire war. Three-year enlistments became the norm after 1861 and that often meant constant exposure to battle and skirmishes those three years.

  • 28 GnuCarSmell // Apr 20, 2007 at 10:35 am

    Reid’s “this war is lost” remark was a Freudian slip. For just a moment, the filter between Reid’s bird-like brain and his mealy mouth was switched “off,” and he revealed what he honestly wants. The Democrats would rather see Iraq’s young democracy fall to the terrorists than let Bush score a victory there. It’s part of their 2008 election strategy.

    The prospect of a stable democratic Iraq frightens the Democrats to death. Their efforts to sabotage the mission will only increase.

  • 29 Shelly // Apr 20, 2007 at 10:48 am

    Was over at Newsbusters and found this flashback from Alec Baldwin:

    “During the Clinton impeachment, he said: “If we were living in another country, what we, all of us together, would go down to Washington and stone (Republican Congressman) Henry Hyde to death, stone him to death, stone him to death! Then we would go to their house and we’d kill the family, kill the children.”

    Remember: Supporting the troops is “scary.” Supporting the deaths of children is “silly.”

    So the longer deployments began the day after the Dems meeting with George, that was one fast reaction to the “lack of funding” which wouldn’t be an issue if not money were forthcoming until sometime next year.

    And the “commander and chief” has no say whatever nor should he watch over how veterans are treated? I did not realize that and stand corrected, thanks.

  • 35 boberinyetagain // Apr 20, 2007 at 12:12 pm

  • 40 Shelly // Apr 20, 2007 at 12:53 pm

    bober, those long deployments mentioned during the Civil War and WWII were not Bush’s fault, but I can see how you’d want to blame him, just like you did for “setting up” the VA. Longer deployments were announced last week, weeks following the Dems going home for two weeks without getting a bill to the Presidents desk. (Except the one who went to Syria to misrepresent Israel to the terror-supporting thug.) That same week the SecDef announced that the longer deployments would be the result of the Dems - continuing - refusal to support the troops financially.

    Oh, and sectarian violence is down by half and tips coming from Iraqis regarding terrorists are at an all time high. This is losing?

    The surge is what, about half completed to date? Saying it’s not working is like saying “I am halfway through fixing my lunch, but I’m not full yet, so the meal is a failure.”

  • 41 Effeminem // Apr 20, 2007 at 1:00 pm

    Off topic, why does Scott say “Democrat senators” rather than “Democratic senators?” I know the implication is that they’re not really “democratic” and we don’t want to let them use their name for propaganda and so forth. However, it seems like their philosophy of mob rule and cultural relativism is much more “democratic” than principles like absolute truth, natural rights, and the sovereignty of God.

    The nurse was screaming at the top of her lungs, so shrill that my eardrums almost burst; “You stupid piece of **** you blew your nose on the wrong color of Kleenex and then had the gall to dispose of it in the wrong trash basket!!!”

    She was really losing it. Bordering on a complete nervous breakdown.

    Concerned for the lady, I quickly soothed her for the moment by quietly saying; “Cakm down, you know you can’t blame me, BusHitler made me do it. It’s all Bush’s fault”. Too bad, wrong move, because that got her started on an even louder BusHitler
    rant. Shortly, corpsmen arrived with the long sleeved white jacket, got the saftey straps buckled and carried her off for hopefully a better mental healthcare provider than her current one.

    The beauty of it is that you can do anything, no matter how prepostrous and get off scott free by blaming BusHitler. The shooter last Monday at Virginia Tech could have simply said, “Not me it is Bush’s fault” and walked away.

    From James Q. Wilson speaking to Euroweenies who live in countries with very strict gun controls:

    AS FOR THE European disdain for our criminal culture, many of those countries should not spend too much time congratulating themselves. In 2000, the rate at which people were robbed or assaulted was higher in England, Scotland, Finland, Poland, Denmark and Sweden than it was in the United States. The assault rate in England was twice that in the United States. In the decade since England banned all private possession of handguns, the BBC reported that the number of gun crimes has gone up sharply.

    Some of the worst examples of mass gun violence have also occurred in Europe. In recent years, 17 students and teachers were killed by a shooter in one incident at a German public school; 14 legislators were shot to death in Switzerland, and eight city council members were shot to death near Paris.

    The main lesson that should emerge from the Virginia Tech killings is that we need to work harder to identify and cope with dangerously unstable personalities.

    It is a problem for Europeans as well as Americans, one for which there are no easy solutions — such as passing more gun control laws.

  • 46 Darthmeister // Apr 20, 2007 at 2:03 pm

    Shelly, the “surge” is only about one-third complete on the timeline with less than half the troops in place. Full “surge” strength is not expected to take place until mid-June. But like I said before, the most important think is the change of policy enacted by al-Maliki and the change of rules of engagement by General Petreaus. The Iraqi murderers are a determined enemy that only needs to luck out and get it right one time to make a big splash in the headlines of American newspapers. What the media isn’t reporting is how many times those attempts have been thwarted and how many thousands of bad guys are being permanently put out of action.

    It’s totally stupid of the Dem-wits to whine about there not being a military solution to the Iraqi problem. That ignorant refrain is totally disingeneous since the military planners and the Bush Administration are perfectly aware there must be a political component that will ultimately win the peace - and that political component is already in place but is being threatened by Islamic violence.

    But to get to the point where there is actually a viable political will, bad guys have to be killed and the Iraqi people have to be shown that whatever greivances and concerns they have must be settled peacefully through their government and the political process that is evolving, not in an Arab street or through the local radical mosque or imam. There is absolutely no way a political solution can be put within the reach of the Iraqis unless there is a military component that is creating opportunity for such. The Dem-wits know this, that’s why they are so invested in seeing the military component fail so they can have crowing rights when Iraq really blows up. Hence their multiple and deceitful seditions.

    Any truth to the rumor of GIs signaling that if they die in Iraq that they desire to have their remains (ashes) dropped on or spread over President Bush’s Texas ranch or personally delivered to him by a surviving family member? I’ve heard that the thinking is: he’s responsible for them being killed therefore he owns them. I guess this is akin to the administration’s you break it you own it policy.

    Jameson, excellent links! I’m sure the left will try to convince us that the amazing increase in the ice cap is somehow due to global warming. And that the liberal hate speech demonstrated by so many on the left - typified by Harry “Benedict Arnold” Reid and Alec “my eleven (twelve?) year old daughter is a “rude, thoughtless little pig” who deserves to be sworn at, in the latest news cycle. Will Obama return the campaign contribution of one who is clearly guilty of verbal violence? Or will Joe Biden simply point out that acts of treachery and child abuse on the left are the fault of the GOP too.

    Oh, and mk - gulp that Koolaid!

  • 60 Fred Sinclair // Apr 20, 2007 at 7:02 pm

    143 years later, what if anything has changed? (A.) “Nothing”. Their white flag of surrender still waves today, as it did then. Some people never learn and yet they are allowed to walk freely among us. Why is “Benedict Arnold/Harry Reid” not in jail? Why is he not forced to resign in shame? (A.) Because the Liberal Left doesn’t know the meaning of the word shame; “They will call good, evil and evil, good”

    From today’s “Best of the web” :

    Latter-Day Copperhead
    - “I believe . . . that this war is lost, and this surge is not accomplishing anything, as is shown by the extreme violence in Iraq this week.”-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid , April 19, 2007
    -”Resolved, that this convention does explicitly declare, as the sense of the American people, that after four years of failure to restore the Union by the experiment of war, during which, under the pretence of military necessity, or war power higher than the Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disregarded in every part, and public liberty and private right alike trodden down, and the material prosperity of the country essentially impaired, justice, humanity, liberty, and the public welfare demand that immediate efforts be made for a cessation of hostilities, with a view to an ultimate convention of the States or other peaceable means, to the end that at the earliest practicable moment peace may be restored on the basis of the federal Union of the States.”- 1864 Democratic platform

    Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating. One of my favorites is in the area of forest conservation which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. When presenting this idea to my younger brother, who’s judgment I trust implicitly, he proposed taking it one step further. I believe his quote was, “how bout just washing the one square out.”

    (The following is parody, but just barely):

    Harry Reid, leader of “Congressional Friends of Al-Qaeda,” has released a communiqué boasting “this war is won!.” In a grainy video, Reid is seen standing behind several kneeling and blind-folded Western hostages. Reid is thrusting an AK-47 skyward in one spindly arm and holding a Koran in the other. The hostages appear to be American servicemen — part of what Reid calls “the Great Satan’s all-volunteer infidels.” Joining Reid are several al-Qaeda terrorists and other Democrat leaders, their faces hidden behind scarves.

    On the wall behind the reed-like Reid is a map of Iraq, painted red to represent the blood which Reid and friends intend to shed in their “War Against Bush”. Emblazoned on the map are the words “Democrats 2008 - Whatever the Cost.”

    It isn’t often that I get to have a really good roflmho fun time, but I just finished watching “The Day After Tomorrow”. It isn’t quite as realistic and factual as “Independence Day” or “I Robot”. But I have to admit the photography was superb. Algore must have seen it and thought it was a scientific documentary, inspiring him to make his fantasy film, “An Impossible Lie” (or something like that).

    As a propaganda film. “An Inconvenient Truth” compares favorable with a Bugs Bunny cartoon (complete with Elmer Fudd and his 50 shot double barreled shotgun, that’s fully automatic at times) since both treat truth and facts equally. It’s certainly on a par with the very best indoctrination / brainwashing movies the Nazis and Communists have been able to produce so far.

    According to the BBC News:

    The Cuban president has not been seen in public since then but his ally, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, has been giving regular updates on his condition and recently said Mr Castro was “almost totally recovered”.

    Mr Castro held talks for about an hour with Wu Guanzheng, a member of the Chinese Communist Party’s Politburo, Granma reported.

    Mr Castro was handed a letter from Chinese President Hu Jintao, in which he praised the “excellent ties” between the two countries, the newspaper said.

    In 2006 China became the country’s second largest trading partner, with trade between the two nations worth some $1.8m (1.4m euros; £0.94m) last year.

    Mr Wu is on a four-day visit to boost political and trade ties between the two communist allies.

    After his meeting with Mr Castro, Mr Wu also held talks with Raul Castro.

    Bobberin, nervous Iraqi sargeants can be responsible for dead American soldiers. You may not agree with the American war effort, but somewhere along the line, our elected representatives decided that we will never be truly safe as long as regimes exist where terrorists can operate (which includes planning nuclear attacks) with impunity. Now you may not agree with that last statement, if that’s the case, then you are just stupid. But it is this government’s foreign policy at the moment, and Reid is doing everything he can to undermine that policy.

    If the Dems were supporting the war effort, I suspect that Iran and Syria, on the heels of the fall of Saddam, would be much less likely to supply al-Qaeda. They would also be under greater heat from the world to reform their govts. You Dems need to quit living in the “if only” world and realize that this country needs oil to survive. And we don’t need a world where 3/4 of the supply of oil is controlled by a nuclear Iran. If that ever happens, the Arabs will be buying the higyhways you drive on, the stores you shop at and the restaurant chains where you eat. Does that make any sense to your wimp-addled brain?

We were studying the various classifications of different animals and this particular day, we were on spiders. I explained that the spider was in the class called Arachnid and that the two kids could remember the name because of the movie about spiders that I wouldn’t let them watch ~ Arachniphobia.

    Friday, Rush Limbaugh said that according to The World Health Organization “The number one killer in the United States of young people ages 10 - 24 is largely preventable traffic accidents”.

    Nationwide America has lost 50,000 lives a year to these traffic accidents. In the 4 years since the war started there has been somewhat over 3,300 deaths in Iraq, in the same 4 years, over 200,000 people died here in the U.S. (largely ‘preventable’ deaths)

    32 people murdered at Virginia Tech and the left wants to ban guns!

    Over 200,000 die in traffic accidents and no one wants to ban wheels!

    No motions have even made to ban automobiles! Looks like a gun ban has nothing whatsoever to do with peoples lives and everything to do with politics, specifically the Liberal Left’s political agenda.

    And when it involves the preventable deaths of about 1,000,000 boys and girls, each year; scalpels don’t kill people, abortionists kill people. There is certainly no call to ban abortionists, which have caused the deaths of over 4,000,000 little people since the war started.

With his new toy in gear, the hubby did the mowing while I hoed the garden and planted more goodies, gathered lettuce and spinach for supper and weeded the strawberries. At one point we died laughing as we watched a squirrel and a crow duke it out next to our wheelbarrow. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and was so upset that I couldn’t get to my movie camera. The crow was chasing the squirrel on the ground, hopping after it and pulling the squirrel’s tail!! The squirrel would stop and dive at the crow, who would dodge and look as if it were laughing. The squirrel finally went up the telephone pole and sat on top and then, all of a sudden, came flying down the pole and ran directly at the crow, chattering like crazy. The crow didn’t fly away, but just king of moseyed on like he’d had enough. Animals are a hoot.

    These events coincidentally occur when Dems like Reid and Pelosi “sound off” about withdrawal, deadlines, or attaching either to the purse strings.

About one fourth of our generation has already been wiped out, and the executions continue at the rate of over 3000 a day. If you were born after that date, you are one of the unchosen. You are a Death Roe Survivor.”

    35 years at over 1m per year so in the 4 years of the war - at or about 4 - 4.5 m plus 200,000 trafic deaths.

    And the liberal left has the gall to charge conservatives with being hard, cruel, mean and wihout compassion. If the liberal left had any compassion, they would demand an immediate end to abortion and motor vehicle laws on par with Germany (where you’ve got to really work at it, to get killed in traffic.)

    “I also like the idea of not using paper napkins, which happen to be made from virgin wood and represent the height of wastefulness. I have designed a clothing line that has what’s called a “dining sleeve.” The sleeve is detachable and can be replaced with another “dining sleeve,” after usage. The design will offer the “diner” the convenience of wiping his mouth on his sleeve rather than throwing out yet another barely used paper product. I think this idea could also translate quite well to those suffering with an annoying head cold.”

    Okay, I need some advice here….seriously, Sheryl Crow has been hired to play at the biggest country music festival in the upper midwest the first weekend of August….(I still don’t understand why she was invited except they couldn’t fill the slot any other way…) Now I have the time to organize a walkout or some other type of protest and I want it to be effective….do I just bring a roll of TP and have everyone around me wave 1 square or do we throw the whole roll up in the air as is the practice when TPing someone’s house….?! I’m open to all ideas!! (there will be upwards of 40,000 people in attendance so it could be a real mess!!)

    Moonbat Kucinich, who wants to create a Department of Peace (where staff members will probably have to wear propeller beanies or deelie-bobs), has announced that he will introduce articles of impeachment against VP Cheney. The birdbrain has Bird-shot in his sights.

    Crow and Davids have determined that anthropegenic global climate change is “settled science”. The heat source,however, appears to be coming from their steaming pile of droppings. Rove refuses to shake the hand of these wipeouts.

    Pointing his fingers at President Bush while ignoring the three fingers pointing back at him, Reid continues to hold the title as the champeen eunuch of Denial. (Did he ever agree to hear what Gen. Petraeus had to say, or does Reid get his war updates from thinkprogress, dailykos, dhimmiunderground, and moveon?)

    Schumer has presented “a most excellent list” of candidates for AG to replace Gonzales. Wow, what a statesman! One of his suggestions is Comey, who put Fitzie in place. Schumer, Waxman, and Leahy have been working overtime on the railroad.

When asked what he was doing, the gorilla replied, “I’m trying to figure out whether I am my brother’s keeper or whether I am my keeper’s brother.”

    mig, it’s like I’ve always said, if someone wants to believed they’ve descended from hyper-active primordial slime, they certainly have the right to believe that about their own family tree, just don’t include the rest of us in your fantasy.

    It also reminds me of that wonderful scene in the movie Gettysberg when the divisional commanders of Robert E. Lee were sitting around the campfire debating the then relatively new theory of Darwinian evolution. After patiently listening to General Armistead eloquently laying out the new Darwinian dogmas of man’s origins, General Pickett responded with, “Sir, you may be descended from an ape, all these fine gentlemen sitting here may be descended from an ape and even I may be descended from an ape, but I defy anyone to say that General Lee is descended from an ape!”

    Yeah, yeah, I know, the evolutionists speak of humanity supposedly being descended from a COMMON ANCESTOR to the apes, but really that’s a distinction without any real difference. Besides, they admit they believe their most distant relative is some slime that oozed its way out of a primoridal soup that got hit by lightning. Which means we’re distant brothers and sisters to amoeba and cockroaches! Well, like you observed mig, maybe brain-dead liberals are.

    If this kind of fantastical shinola of ultimately descending from slime was in the Bible, it would have been laughed at by secular humanists and atheists who would then “discover” a far different scenario of man’s origins … like intelligent design. And then we would have arrived at: “May the impersonal force be with you!” Well, at least it’s a start.

  • 158 Darthmeister // Apr 24, 2007 at 8:23 am

    If I may be so bold to paraphrase something I’ve read regarding the Creation-Evolution debate.

    One of the great conundrums of Darwinism has always been the teleological dilemma. Evolutionists waste no opportunity to remind the unwashed masses that our existence on planet Earth is not the work of an outside agent possessing a superior intellect. These intellectually superior people insist that the incredible variation and complexity observed in our world can be explained simply by the random interaction of chemicals over vast expanses of time, all without the aid of a master plan or purpose of any kind. The only thing missing from their dogmas is any proof as to how this might have occurred given the fact no one has produced an example of a random process capable of such a feat. And if this ever upward “complexification” is an innate property of matter itself, why can’t it be identified and revealed to us disbelievers?

    If everything in this world arrived here without the need for intelligence, why would it be necessary to evolve it? One logical consequence of the secular humanist and liberal atheist narrative is intelligence (in this case, human intelligence) always poses a latent threat to the very universe of evolution, the natural world. Human intelligence should have been evolved out of the materialists’ garden of eden a long time ago for the latent threat it poses to not only those other lifeforms who have competing intelligence but particularly those that don’t.

    Though any number of imaginative arguments can be erected to justify the evolution of intelligence, we are still left to conclude that the end product of evolution is ultimately self-destructive! The material universe, after all, is said to be completely without purpose, order or rationale. Hmmmmm, precisely the kind of universe in which liberal atheists would flourish when you think about it.

    In the Darwinists’ meta-narrative, given enough eons of time blind chance will produce fantastic results and would have to be preferred over the use of unnecessary byproducts of evolutionary trial-and-error such as design, intelligence or purpose. So why has intelligence survived as an inheritable trait and why has intelligent humankind been condemned by secular humanists as the biggest threat to a natural order which in turn is based on random chaos? By what standard or moral authority (in a universe without moral authority) do secular enviromentalists whackos hypocritically avail themselves when condemning humankind for “destroying the environment” - an environment which evolved humanity in the first place?

    Oh what a tangled web we weave.

    Andrew Klavan

    The thing I like best about being a conservative is that I don’t have to lie. I don’t have to pretend that men and women are the same. I don’t have to declare that failed or oppressive cultures are as good as mine. I don’t have to say that everyone’s special or that the rich cause poverty or that all religions are a path to God. I don’t have to claim that a bad writer like Alice Walker is a good one or that a good writer like Toni Morrison is a great one. I don’t have to pretend that Islam means peace.

    Of course, like everything, this candor has its price. A politics that depends on honesty will be, by nature, often impolite. Good manners and hypocrisy are intimately intertwined, and so conservatives, with their gimlet-eyed view of the world, are always susceptible to charges of incivility. It’s not really nice, you know, to describe things as they are.

Hollywood is making less movies because they are making far less money. This is all good to me. Plus, I think the outrageousness of their claims (one square?) and hypocrisy (you use one square, I’ll use three semis, four buses and six cars) is seriously hurting their claims as well. Again, this is all good.

    On another note, I sent the following e-mail to both of my Republican senators. Was I too harsh?

    *For weeks, Democrats have assaulted the Bush administration for replacing eight U.S. attorneys for “political reasons.” But when Harry Reid and Chuck Shumer manipulate the funding of our courageous military, after voting to send them to war, and then go on record saying that this is being done for political reasons the Republicans remain silent. Every one of you should feel immense shame at this spineless response to people who are putting our troops at increased risk for political reasons, and are doing so without any response. Is there anyone in Washington who backs up their claim to support the troops?*

    Now our problems are solved.
    Little black kids can walk home from school without worrying about catching an accidental round from one of the afternoon’s drive-bys. Black teen-agers can congregate on street corners without stirring the fears of their neighbors or the rivalries of the black teen-agers congregated on the street corner two blocks away.
    In black neighborhoods all across America’s great cities, home ownership rates will rise and foreclosure rates will fall. Balanced meals will be cooked, lead dust will be cleaned up, Section 8 will become a thing of the past.
    Parents will come to open house to meet their children’s teachers, kids will do their homework, they’ll take the metal detectors out of the schools.
    The phrase “baby daddy” will be replaced by the title “husband.” Instead of two-thirds of children being born out of wedlock, babies will be born to a woman with a ring on her finger and a father for her child. A 32-year-old grandmother will be a very rare thing.
    Dad’s paycheck will take the place of mom’s welfare check. A benefits card will come from the human resources office, not the caseworker.
    Now that Imus is gone.

    If humankind is utlimately the product of random chance, then even man’s brain has been randomly evolved by this chaos of evolution. Having thus subscribed to this view of a random universe, then even the very concepts of “logic” and “reason” must be questioned, particularly in view of the fact that different cultures can’t even agree on what is “logical” or what is “reasonable.” How can the purely secular man ever hope to arrive at a completely logical understanding of the universe - a cosmos subject to universal randomness and informational entropy - if the instrument by which he perceives the universe (his brain) is itself the flawed result of random evolution? To claim ones brain is the pinnacle of evolution’s creative process would be excessively arrogant and in fact not allowed given that evolutionary theory itself posits there is not end to any system “being perfected” since the ultimate end is maximum entropy or universal randomness. Another logical conundrum.

    Atheists who based their world view on nothing but what they call “logic” and “reason” are eventually hoisted on their on petard since the very tenets of their theory posits a universe which operates purely on the basis of undirected, random chance. How does one objectively calibrate the brain, our instrument of perception, in an everchanging, randomized reality which appears to have no absolute standard - at least according to the secular humanist there are no absolute standards? How can order come from disorder, ultimate logic come from the illogical, and how does perfect thinking “evolve” from imperfect thought if all things are subject to the random forces operating throughout the impersonal universe of chaos?

    How can the secular man even be sure what he embraces is “logical” or “reasonable”, particularly when their atheistic forebearers before them emphatically proclaimed they “logically” arrived at certain conclusions about an evolutionary cosmos which have now been proven wrong? If evolutionary theory is so intuitive and so logical, then the rational, thinking evolutionist should have gotten their theory right the first time around. Instead, the theory of evolution has been twisted, warped, and hammered into a box which is anything but logical or intuitive - it’s just another nice creation story by people who weren’t there when the original something come into being eons ago. The theory of evolution has become so overly broad and able to accomodate any “observation” no matter how contradictory that it can’t possibly be falsifiable, hence it can’t be deemed true science.

    Personally, I and hundreds of millions of other thinking human beings believe the theory of evolutionary materialism to be “illogical” and not very compelling, OTHERWISE WE WOULD BELIEVE! As a thinking human being I’m drawn to order, I embrace “logic”, reasonable explanations resonate with my soul, yet I cannot bring myself to believing in evolutionary randomness, they we all got here by accident. And it would be easy for me to believe, to go with the flow but I haven’t the blind faith.

    Evolutionism, like any other system of belief, forces its adherents into a tautological belief system that seems coherent and logical to the “true believer” but appear to be the ravings of a madman to others who don’t buy into their materialistic meta-narrative. So the question before each one of us is this: Are you willing to die for what you believe in? Are you willing to stake the existence of your being on theories manufactured by flawed humanity in hopes of “making sense of it all”? Or is there a Creator who has made plain the plan He has for your life, an Almighty Deity who was not only there when the whole cosmos came into being but was the First Cause itself?

    The choice is yours: “He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep (his life) to gain that which he cannot lose (eternal life).” — Jim Elliot, missionary martyr who lost his life in the late 1950’s trying to reach the Auca Indians of Ecuador

    Darthmeister - Awhile ago I read a book, written by an ophthalmologist who is a former athiest (cannot recall his name) he writes that it came to him that the human eyeball is an impossibility. He could accept the eye of horse, dog, eagle, camel, etc. as having evolved but not the human eye. Impossible, since the optic nerve and the hundreds of thousands of connections to the brain could not possibly have evolved.

    Therefore it had to have had a Creator. So he began reading the Bible. Today he lectures around the country, using charts, pictures etc as he explains the eye’s impossibility. And how that knowledge led him to reject Darwin and become a Christian.

    “Not my field of medicine, but I have long known that the human male is the only male animal on the planet that does not have a bone in it’s reproductive organ. By that, and the eye, man is uniquely set apart from every other animal. Mankind did not evolve. Mankind (at the least) was created. Thereby requiring a Creator (aka: God).”

  • 181 Darthmeister // Apr 24, 2007 at 5:56 pm

    Fred, what complicates the claims made about the evolution of the eye is not only the complexity of the structures of the eye itself that would have to evolve almost simultaneously (what good is half an eye?), but the eye is purported to have evolved not just one time but no less than three different times! Mammalian eyes are very different than insect eyes which in turn are very different from what are considered earlier forms of “camera” or “pinhole” eyes. I mean, anyone can construct hypothetical times lines, draw nice sketches of what is imagined to have happened and bloviate how these structures could have theoretically evolved, but that’s not real science.

    Here are more questions concerning the slip-shod claims made by evolutionists that aren’t based on clearly documented scientific experiments and direct observations but rather based on mere rationalization/guesstimation which happens to get a consensus of agreement among evolutionists. And it’s the latter to which I’m opposed.

    Dick Cheney cooly and objectively lays it straight re Reid’s political opportunism and vacillating positions:

    There is something seriously wrong with Harry Reid. Is his behavior and are his remarks evidence of brain damage following his stroke? When confronted with facts that contradict his vacillating positions and preposterous proclamations, he has absolutely no affect, no facial expression. He lies with a straight face, and no reporters push him to justify or clarify his remarks.

    Reid’s pointed-finger accusations about the Bush administration’s being in denial are three fingers pointing back at himself. It is apparent that he is behind the curve in knowing the total picture about what is going on in Iraq. Either his staff is withholding total information, or he has comprehension problems. Most definitely though, he is willfully avoiding facts on the ground being provided by Gen. Petraeus in his monthly updates.

    A majority leader in the Senate needs to be fully informed-and that means beyond the media headlines and party talking points. If Reid is ignoring information because facts confuse him or take him away from party unity, then he is not ready for prime time on behalf of the interests of our nation.

    I cannot decide what facial expression of Reid’s bothers me most: the deadpan or the squinty-eyed scowl. Does this man suffer from hemorrhoids? (Pelosi bugs out her eyes, and he narrows him beams. Don’t they make a matched set on the wedding cake?)

    (Are you aware that the latest Dem offering of the emergency war appropriations bill has added a minimum wage “sweetener” to arm twist members to their side of the aisle? Cynical, eh?)

    onlineanalyst, if the media went after Democrats with the same ferocity it goes after Republicans, this would be an entirely different country. Republicans can fall even as a result of faux scandals that the Donks and their enablers in the liberal media incessantly hammer away at until even spineless Republicans abandon their own. Just look at AG Gonzales (though I personally don’t think he’s the strongest choice conservatives have for AG). I mean, WHERE’S THE CRIME?

    Why the faux outrage over the excutive branch exercising its constitutional right to appoint new US Attorney’s at the pleasure of the President? The libs can only get away with their inquisition because the media, in this case, has done an excellent job of not distinguishing between that which is political (all US Attorney appointments are political by definition since they are expected to carry out the basic policies - and all policy is political to one degree or another - and agenda set by the President himself within the framework of the law) and that which is partisan. One would assume if these US Attorney’s serve at the pleasure of the President and if they do not do so in accordance with the tone and tenor set by the executive branch, THEY’RE HISTORY.

    And where’s the “partisanship” if even Republican US Attorney’s are being canned? I’m just preaching to the choir here, but if the media was really fair-minded and impartial it would have also skewered the very partisan Grand Inquisitor Leahy for his transparent attempts to blur the separation of power line which exists between the executive branch and the legislative branch.

    And now another DemDonk committee is starting to look into the “political activities” of Karl Rove! What, Republicans being “political” is now a crime after what we saw under the Clinton Administration? Bwahahahaha. Clearly there is the attempt by Donks and the lamestream media to criminalize conservatism under the general heading of conservatives being “too political”.

    RAND SIMBERG DENIES that Harry Reid is trying to help Al Qaeda: “Look, I don’t think that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi objectively want Al Qaeda to win. I’m sure that they have succeeded in deluding themselves that we are the problem in Iraq. I’m also sure that they believe that this is in the near term a political winner for them, and sadly, they may be right. But they’re playing a dangerous game. What if they’re wrong, and the people actually reporting success in Iraq are right? They’re so heavily invested in defeat now that it could actually be an electoral disaster for them next year. I certainly hope that will be the case. For me, it would be win-win-we’d have won in Iraq, and the Dems would have lost precisely because they did everything they could to prevent it from happening.”

    Here’s how I think it might go down:

    Scenario #1 - If Democrats had supported President Bush and the war went bad, they could still come back with this being Bush’s War, they were being patriotic, blah, blah … and they would have won big in 2008 hands down. Even when Winston Churchill help win the war for Britain, he was turned out to pasture by the opposition party in 1946. Sometimes people tire of success and want “a fresh start”. Delusional, but that’s politics.

    But the Democrats haven’t supported the President, so …

    Scenario #2 - Demoncrats oppose the President, pray the war goes bad while still intoning “We support the troops”, the war goes bad for another two years, in the short term Demoncrats win big in 2008 but to great harm to the country in the long term. Americans hate losing and see Demoncrats as losers once they begin understanding how this party betrayed this country on the basis of political calculation and see the senseless slaughter in the Middle East jump several orders of magnitude higher just as it did in Vietnam after America cut and ran there.

    Scenario #3 - Demoncrats oppose and undermine President Bush (which they are presently doing), the war in Iraq brings positive results over the next 18 months that even the media has to start reporting it as such or be further discredited, Demoncrats lose big time in 2008 for being perceived as trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. The American people will win and this will be a kick in the teeth of the Islamic caliphate.

    Lesson: If Demoncrats win in any scenario, Americans are ultimately the losers and the rising tide of Islamofascism will continue to rise.

    Just as we were right about the Duke lacrosse players who were the subject of a rogue prosecutor’s witchhunt, it looks like NewsMax has the latest scoop on the witchhunt being conducted against the Haditha Marines.

    I believe some of this information was available and posted here at Scrappleface nearly eight months ago. It looks like the military still wants its PC pound of flesh and is trying to drag this case out. There is both audio and videotape evidence the Haditha Marines were ambushed by insurgents using Iraqi civilians as human shields. If the Marines are exhonerated, as they should be, Rep. John Murtha (D-Moon) owes them a very public apology. Band of Brothers indeed.

    And speaking of coffee, a real good Christian book called First We Have Coffee is on my Micheala list (Ophra has hers, Micheala does too) of good reading.

    Margeret Jensen wrote about her Scandinavian parents who preached in the Northlands of Minnesota. Times were tough but Jensen always said when her mother had to comfort a soul in need that, “A cup of coffee and a talk with mamma could always set the world right.”

    Not a rough tough man book, but maybe a few guys may like it anyhow. Who knows?

    Murder rates and crime are soaring in liberal bastions like Orlando, Florida as well as other liberal urban meccas in the midwest.

    American criminals who vote Democrat are fomenting too much violence and must redeploy to Okinawa and leave this once pristine utopia to the noble savages who once blanketed this land and engaged in their own tribal warfare.

    And just think how bad things would be if Americans believed in fatwas and jihad for every little religious disagreement. Everyday we hear about Muslim atrocities in some backwater Islamic country. Iraq isn’t the only place where wholesale Muslim violence and the lamestream media needs to give some cultural context (but can’t do so because it would undermine their narrative about Islamism being a “religion of peace.”)

    Daily Muslim violence can be viewed here. Can you handle the truth?

  • 199 Darthmeister // Apr 25, 2007 at 12:11 pm

    AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH … for liberals

    Putting the numbers in a perspective that even liberals can understand.

    More people are killed by Islamists each year than in all 350 years of the Spanish Inquisition combined. Source

    Islamic terrorists murder more people every day than the Ku Klux Klan has in the last 50 years. Source

    More civilians were killed by Muslim extremists in two hours on September 11th than in the 36 years of sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. Source

    And given how liberal seculars have ranted, raved and railed against these past injustices, just where is the liberal outrage against a barbaric religion and its leadership which continue their open depradations on innocent humanity to this very day? (crickets chirping)

    BTW, on this day one year ago we learned:

    4/25/06 Pakistan Dattakhel: al-Qaeda militants attack a security patrol, killing four people, including a journalist.
    4/25/06 Pakistan Shavai Kainari: Islamic militants kidnap and behead a taxi driver.
    4/25/06 Iraq Baqubah: Holy warriors gun down four civilians, including an 8-year-old girl.
    4/25/06 Iraq Baghdad: Radical Sunnis plant a bomb on a minibus, killing at least two.
    4/25/06 Pakistan Quetta: An Afghan bomb maker connects the wrong wires, killing four members of his own family and injuring his 2nd wife and 13-year-old son.
    4/25/06 India Tral: Twelve schoolchildren are among twenty-four people injured when an Islamic radical hurls a grenade into a crowded market.
    4/25/06 India Shopian: A bookseller succumbs to injuries suffered from an Islamic terror attack.
    4/25/06 Thailand Pattani: Islamists gun down a Buddhist pig farmer.
    4/25/06 Thailand Narathiwat: A 45-year-old civilian is killed by Muslim terrorists while walking home.
    4/25/06 Afghanistan Kabul: Religious extremists fire rockets into a city street, killing two civilians.
    4/25/06 India Arnora: Two bodyguards are killed by Muslim terrorists attempting to wipe out the family of a legislator.

    But liberals have a simple answer for all this: IT’S BUSH’S FAULT!

    Geraldo represents the pinnacle of Orwellian double-think. He’s all over the map. Virtually anything short of murder is permissible in his world. He’s more of a libertarian anarchist than he is a socialist.

    There’s a moonbat in our neck of the woods that has described himself to me as an “anarcho-syndicalist”. His views seem to represent the new political dynamic where the far right (anarchists) meet the far left (collectivists). It’s like if you mind meld the anti-war, anti-Bush David Duke with the anti-war, anti-Bush Ted Kennedy (or fill in the blank with any other raving lunatic leftist). Pretty warped fellow in thought as well as in his personal life. The guy is a congenital liar to boot according to his former wife who had to raise the kids on her own when when he abandoned the family for another woman.

    Senator Inhofe says Reid’s resignation is too easy, in giving “aid and comfort” to the enemy, in time of war is calling for his ejection from the Senate. Good idea since if Reid resigns he would still benefit financially + perks.

    I nominate Joe Liberman to be Reid’s replacement.

    Too true, too true (alas) - “The Sultans Son”

    Once upon a time, a Sultan was blessed with the birth of a son
    after years of hoping. The boy immediately became the apple
    of his father’s eye.
    Just before his son’s sixth birthday, the Sultan said to him,
    “Son, I love you very much. Your birthday is coming soon.
    What would you like?” His son replied, “Daddy, I would like to have my own airplane.”
    His father bought him American Airlines.
    Just before his son’s seventh birthday, the Sultan said, “Son,
    you are my pride and joy. Ask what you want for your birthday.
    Whatever it is, it’s yours.”
    His son replied, “Daddy, I would like a boat.”
    His father bought him the Princess Cruise Line.
    Just before his son’s eighth birthday, the Sultan said, “Son, you
    bring so much happiness into my life. Anything you want, I shall
    get for you.”
    His son replied, “Daddy, I would like to be able to watch cartoons.”
    His father bought him Disney Studios.
    Just before his son’s ninth birthday, the Sultan said, “Son, you
    are my life. Your birthday is coming soon. Ask what you wish. I
    will get it for you.”
    His son, who had grown to love Disney, replied, “Daddy, I would
    like a Mickey Mouse outfit and a Goofy outfit”. His father bought him
    the Democratic Party and CBS news.

    I am so tired of people getting a pass because they have the label “comedian.” It’s okay to be grotesque, foul mouthed, idiotic and hateful because one is a “comedian?” It’s okay to argue that fire can’t melt steel because one is a “comedian?” (BTW, isn’t it convenient that nature makes steel in the shape of car parts?) It’s okay to say that Bush blew up WT7 and should be impeached because one is a “comedian?”

    RE: 211, Did you see Geraldo on H&C last night? After completely excusing Rosie’s behavior at that awards show, not to mention her imbecilic comments on the view (which I too have never watched) he criticized Donald Trump, based on his desire for “grace in the public discourse.” I will be e-mailing Fox and copying Geraldo based on his being such a two-faced idiot. But I’ll try to calm down a little first.

  • 219 Shelly // Apr 26, 2007 at 7:25 am

    It’s been a while since I’ve done my usual Thursday morning thing and recommended that ALL read Ann Coulter’s column. Here’s a preview:

    “In fact, I think we should expand the mental illness exception to cover First Amendment rights as well as Second Amendment rights.

    I note that before mass murder, the only harassment the Virginia Tech killer was guilty of involved speech: creepy e-mails, creepy short stories, creepy phone calls. Stalkers, too, engage in frightening speech — but that is protected. Revealing a stalking victim’s address is “speech” but is little different from being the one to pull the trigger.

    This small measure would have taken Dan “What’s the Frequency, Kenneth” Rather off the airwaves years ago, preventing him from presenting doctored National Guard documents to the American people to try to throw a presidential election. A mental illness bar would deal a quick blow to Air America and both its remaining listeners. It would also free up about 90 percent of the Internet.

    And it would end the public lunacy of Jim Wallis, the Democrats’ Christian. Wallis’ first remark on the massacre at Virginia Tech last week was to hail the remarkable “diversity” of the victims. True, Cho murdered 32 people in cold blood. But at least he achieved diversity!

    Anyone who thinks a single-minded fixation on diversity must be the ultimate goal of every human endeavor, including mass murder, is not the sort of person who should be able to buy a gun or to publish his daft ruminations in public forums.

    But just to get this straight: Democrats are saying we should be able to jail “strange” or “angry” people, but we can’t deplane imams who demand extra-length seatbelts after boarding?”

    This, today linked from Drudge where you can read the whole article, but here’s just a smattering:

    Democratic presidential candidate and New York Senator Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that it might be necessary for America to confront Iran militarily, addressing that possibility more directly than any of the other presidential candidates who spoke this week to the National Jewish Democratic Council.

    In front of the National JEWISH Democratic Council. Hmmm. I believe the Church Lady used to say, “How conveeeennnient.” The war with Iraq is not ok, but a war with Iran is. Go figure.

  • 221 Shelly // Apr 26, 2007 at 7:34 am

    cat, that fire can’t melt steel thing got to me more than anything else she has said, which is saying something. Years ago my father worked at Sparrow’s Point in Baltimore, and for her to be so incredibly moronic as to not know there are steel mills in this country is beyond stupidity. That wasn’t about free speech, it was about someone so brainless that any words they uttered shouldn’t be listened to by anyone.

  • 222 Shelly // Apr 26, 2007 at 7:38 am
