"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

NeoCon Corporate Quiche

During an e-mail exchange with one of my favorite Noam Chomsky wannabes, He hit me with the hundredth incarnation of an old liberal favorite. I was accused of marching in lock step with the rest of the Republican Limbaugh dittoheads (sigh).

Now, to be honest, after posting Bob Hope's timeless Ghost Breakers zombie parable on democrats and my recent kool-aide comment, I felt personally guilty about potentially berating him on this score. I was arguing the facts, however, against a wall of useless statistics that would make Gleeson's Autorantic Moonbat look like Ralph Waldo Emerson.

When exhausted, it is always entertaining and fun to just admit your guilt as a willing cog in the vast cruel right wing machine, with as much sarcastic zeal as you can muster.

I sent him a prototype of my new favorite VWRC recipe for mayhem. Here is the final product.

NeoCon Corporate Quiche
  1. Line a large disposable roasting pan with a thick layer of cheap pastry crust from WalMart. Make sure the crust is full of preservatives, hydrogenated fat, is past it's expiration date, uses only genetically modified wheat flour and has been fouled by rodents who left genetically modified droppings.
  2. Blend enough cute baby animals of every endangered variety in a 12qt gourmet Cuisineart, to fill the pan (Thanks Glenn).
  3. Season the endangered puree with a copious dose of MSG.
  4. Stoke your vast brick oven of evil, by shoveling in a generous portion of flaming social security checks, welfare checks, elderly medication, inner city schoolbooks and food stamps.
  5. Gently slide the pastry in the tempest for baking.
  6. While your vast right wing delicacy is bubbling away, carefully remove the tin-foil hat you used to receive your last satellite download from Limbaugh and Rove. You can always fashion a fresh one from the rest of the roll.
  7. Wrap the pie up with the foil, while being careful not to remove any of those conservative cooties. They will be given instructions for subsequent infiltration.
  8. Label your magnum opus as 'organic, vegetarian quiche'. Nobody will be able to tell, since it will taste like crap; just like real organic vegetarian quiche from the neighborhood natural health food coop.
Slip your completed product into a plane shipment of food relief for hurricane victims, along with Sen. John Kerry. Gleefully feast on tender filet mignon, caviar, juicy mouthwatering shrimp and various other guilt ridden morsels. Watch C-SPAN coverage of Kerry passing your gift out. Laugh as he takes credit for the whole thing.

I like to borrow a theme from HR Hadden of the movie Contact (modified for my own evil purposes of course):
In order to understand an evil conservative, you have to think like an evil conservative. An evil conservative intelligence is going to be more advanced. That means pure conservative evil operating at multiple levels, in multiple dimensions.
It always feels good to confess.

P.S. Silently give Bush credit for the whole plan.

Playing a Straight Flush with the Race Cards

This is an Insolublog link love letter on recent events. My sidebar readers can look for their links within the content. If I didn't include you, it wasn't personal. (Katey you need permalink capability.) I was looking for recent posts which fit the theme. The theme concerns all of the absurd accusations of racism in the Katrina disaster.

If we had MLK's dream in mind, it would be illegal to ask a persons race on a job application. Gathering racial statistics is never used for its quoted intention, to keep a level playing field. It's used and abused like a blunt force weapon, in race based extortion and promotion. The population race statistics are being used in the same way, by all of the usual Professional Victims.

The only white racists are the ones who shackled poor minorities, in the chains of government entitlement programs.

The only white racists are the ones who told them they don't need to achieve, because the government will take care of them.

The LBJ war on poverty produced projects, not progress; There are genuine statistics to prove that assertion and its failure to produce any self sufficient results, like no reduction of poverty. A self sufficient person becomes a wealth producer in society. They do not become the recipient of another producer's wealth.

Here are the gifts of the LBJ and Robert Byrd style democrat:
What they get is a hand to mouth check from the government. How can the poor ever be anything but poor, under these physical and psychological conditions? Opportunity means hard work, not handouts. But when you are free to have it and it lies before you, you are responsible to make the future you want. This means taking risks. This means working hard. This means you might fail, and it might be hard to get up!

The real white racists just give the poor minorities a meager stipend, a pat on the head, instructions on who to vote for and a smelly bus ride to the polls.

So what type of government do you get, when this vote is given form and function? It wasn't conservative white politicians who dropped the ball here. I would remind our friends from the left that poor african Americans are not minorities in the city of NO, because they are in the majority!
  • Was the mayor of NO white?
  • Was the governor of LA a member of the conservative blogosphere?
  • Are the looters we see in most of the pictures, like Dr. Phat Tony's post, white?
  • Was William Jefferson, who diverted National Guard rescue resources, to pick up luggage at his home, a white congressman?
  • Are those all white officials and community 'leaders' pushing their faces in the cameras and hurling racial epithets?
Where are the re-builders in this list?
Where is the leadership?
Where is the shared accountability and multicultural unity they like to lecture us about?
Who was stepping up to be a source of positive action before, during and after Katrina?

This is the government freely chosen , through the democratic voting process, by the same souls supposedly empowered by liberal social programs. Is this is what the taxpayers want and expect for their entitlement dollar? As soon as the government checks are interrupted, the hand is bitten. The hand is then stitched back up and stuck right back in the jaws of the Pitt Bull's mouth. We are then told that we are duty compelled to feel sorry for the Pitt Bull, since we made him the vicious dog that he is. You know what? We didn't make him that way, the liberals did.

What about Ivan? What about Charlie? What about the Mississippi floods? Those poor, underprivileged Americans picked themselves up and moved on with their lives. They were given no more consideration by the federal government than any other red blooded American hit by a natural disaster.

It looks like the only government official taking verifiable large scale corrective action to fix the NOLA problem is a compassionate conservative white guy named George Bush!

But that's what the liberal argument is about, isn't it? It is about hating Bush, with a hate that blinds them and delights us. I hope they keep kissing the posteriors of Michael Moore and Howard Dean.

Show me any of the Solons, over in that aisle, lifting a real genuine finger, to help these people, instead of churning them through the media hate machine. No, they throw scraps at them for a camera shot, all the way from DC to Hollywood. Bush is the only man pushing for increased home ownership in the rebuilding process.

It is scaring the hell out of the American left. Oh No! Their base might actually walk off their government emotional debt slavery plantation. I would cite Uber's post on the recent ABC segment immediately following Bush's speech, as proof of a new sun rising on the horizon. Thank God the decades of pimping poverty for politics, are ending in this country.

Driving Miss Crazy

The current news cycle, the constant Bush bashing and my general life, as a Massachusetts conservative, have brought the specter of depression to my doorstep.

I recently attended a party of an acquaintance who is an avowed Michael Moore worshiper and John Kerry campaign supporter. Being a charitable conservative optimist, I try to see the opportunity in a situation. I decided to bring my covert Olympus digital voice recorder along. I can personally testify that the rumors of wild conspiracy theories are true. Cultural decay, moral relativism and race baiting are legion. Self-flagellating apologetic America hating internationalist tree-hugging mental gymnasts drape the UN flag with pride, over all things liberal. These people don't just drink watered down Howard Dean kool-aide. They roll welfare checks into paper tubes and snort the stuff in straight powder form. When you have lemons, make lemonade; then put booze in it. I don't drink, but it makes a good metaphor.

Names and relationships have and will be changed, to shield my guilt.

Massachusetts can be depressing when tax time and elections roll by. When social occasions erupt, however, so does the entertainment. I felt as giddy as my second amendment readers would feel, given a dump truck of rock salt, an A-10 Warthog and five unrestrained minutes at an outdoor Barbara Streisand concert.


Gather data. Never rush into an emotional argument with a dedicated entitlement parasite. They are
masters of emotion. Always ask the questions. Moonbats love superficial intellectual bragging. If you rip the tick away with a violent motion, you will leave an angry wriggling head, to masticate your flesh. Slowly build a fire on its gluteus maximus. It will back out by itself. You may then squash it in a matchbook cover.

Little perky Babs bubbled up and anointed me with a rude introduction unblemished by social decorum or courtesy.

Your Eddie's Bush loving buddy aren't you?

Her lemon squeezing expression reminded me of the steady product produced by the Massachusetts political education factory.

Absolutely. But only when I can get it and only if it's fresh.
(Extended pause) Head cock, slowly followed by lemon pucker smirk.

Heh heh... That wasn't funny, you know. You know that idiot has destroyed our reputation around the world.

That's not the kind of 'fresh' I meant.


Never mind. What do you mean by 'our' reputation?

The kind of goodwill Kerry would have preserved.

There was goodwill for Kerry to preserve?

Yes. We were respected around the world before Bush came along with his illegal war.

Bush was in office for four years before Kerry.

Yes! And he destroyed our reputation.

But I thought you said there was still a reputation for Kerry to preserve.
Whatever was left after four years of Bush hell.

But Bush beat Kerry. I thought you said he was an idiot, who destroyed our reputation.

He is an idiot! Rove and Cheney were the ones pulling his strings.

So Rove and Cheney are smart enough to beat Kerry?

I didn't say that.

Then how did they beat Kerry?

At this point Melissa entered the conversation with the same abrupt lack of introduction. Melissa was sporting an unnatural hair color and a fastener catalogue attached to her face.

They used dirty tactics, like the swift boat vets.

And you are?

Melissa. I'm one of Eddies friends.

I never would have guessed. Should I call you just Melissa, or Melissa-of-Borg?


Never mind. How did the swift boat vets defeat Kerry?
They made up gross lies about his service.
Like Dan Rather lied about Bush's service?

That was never really proven to be a lie.
Was the swift boat lie proven?



That's not what I meant!

What did you mean?

They lied!

How do you know?

Look. Kerry's service is on record.

Were we able to see it?
Of course. He released it.

No he didn't.

Yes he did! Don't you watch the news!?

Are we still talking about before the election?

pssh. Look. Everyone knows Kerry is way smarter than Bush.

But he's not smart enough to outwit Rove or Cheney?
They are not the presidential candidate.

That's Right.

So What are you saying?

I'm not the one saying anything.

-- Intermission for more rambling and circular logic --
Please visit our refreshment stand for a delicious hot dog. Pour yourself a frosty Coca-Cola. Why not buy some swag over at Dr. Phat Tony's?

Insolublog pulls his keys from his pocket.

Hey Melissa, I need a couple of copies of this key. Do you think you could fix me up?
What are you talking about?

Don't you have some blanks in your selection?
What!? Are you making fun of my appearance?

Remember how much I despise Professional Victim Syndrome (PVS).

Yeah, that sums it up.

You know, some people are sensitive about those things!

So you make a public statement, with your appearance, saying look at me! I'm different than you! You are all plain Jane nobodies, unlike me. You're right. I am sensitive about those things. You made a billboard out of your face, not me.
I almost expected her to cry, but she stayed the course.

It doesn't sound like you care. I'm not surprised, given your political opinions.
You want me to treat you like you have a visible birth defect, instead of a lifestyle choice? You sound like many AIDS 'victims' who refused to use protection.
-- Intermission while moonbats explode over this revelation --
Please visit our refreshment stand for a delicious hot dog. Pour yourself a frosty Coca-Cola. Why not buy some swag over at Dr. Phat Tony's?

Deep Breath....


While twirling the ice in your secular, non-denominational liquid refreshment, wrinkle your nose, and say
"Where the hell is that smell coming from? Is that marajuana?"
Watch with amusement at the guests who begin to sniff their own fingers and clothes.
Oh well. I have bored you enough. The girls wandered off to spread the love and diversity of yours truly. Like moths to a flame.

Our Exit Strategy

Many of the good people on my sidebar have posted anniversary images of 9/11.

Visit their sites for memorial pictures and commentary.

Unfortunately, a liberal neighbor had the audacity to whine about our 'exit strategy' on this day of morbid reflection. I hunted far and wide for that exit strategy.

I would have almost missed it, at that speed.

The Real Peel

Check out this image of the original Flight 93 nose dive impact crater, courtesy Google images and MSNBC. I think the triangular impressions were the wings. The center crater was the fuselage, containing all the passengers. Look at the shape and ridges of that center crater.

Gosh that looks awfully familiar. In fact, it looks like a crescent, embracing the impact point.

I did not do any esoteric analysis of the orientation and relationships to Mecca.

Still some Edible Apples

The rotten barrel of apples, which passes for our judiciary, still has a few pieces of unbruised fruit. It looks like President Bush's executive authority to protect the country is still intact, when it comes to detentions.

Here's the AP story, Court: 'Dirty Bomb' Suspect Can Be Held

My Gut tells me otherwise

This is interesting. I read Michelle Malkin's comment regarding this new memorial design.


I identified it at once, without reading the comments, as the red crescent of Islam. I instantly thought it was a stunning visual indictment of those responsible for the deaths of flight 93.

I expected cheers from the readers and cries of defamation from CAIR.
Instead, people are venting outrage over what they think is pandering to political correctness.

Was my gut reaction wrong? Since it was a gut reaction, maybe it was the intended result.


Well. It looks like I may be standing alone in thinking that this memorial is (was if we look from the future) symbolizing a main stream religion, embracing the death of innocent people.

I guess it really was just another overt insult to the American people by an insensitive Mapplethorpe wannabe. It looks like we have just another jerk, who feels that insulting fallen heros for fifteen minutes of national fame is cool.

Maybe my occasional random neuron firing is giving more credit to the creators, than they are due. Where the hell is that Ritalin prescription?

Further Update:

I apologize with burdening my readers with further commentary on this
issue, but It fascinates me.

Read Paula Reed's piece over at the Pittsburg Post-Gazette:

5 designs shine for Flight 93 memorial

Look at the Finalist image for this project. This does not look like
the crescent
despicted in the picture on Malkin's site.

Next we move on to the final pick, again at the Post-Gazette:

Flight 93 marker design picked

Which has this familiar image

This comment by designer Murdoch, completely debunks my original
"It will be open and evolving as long as it's there," he said. "Our
memorial is not about offering explanation for what happened, but to
allow people to come to terms with it."
Perhaps his motive had nothing to do with a religious statement, but
the use of the curvature as a parabolic focus to the crash site. The
latter is the view I get from the first image above.
From the beginning, said Milena Murdoch, 46, the focus for them was on the crash site, which many refer to as sacred ground.
So either he was completely ignorant of the religious tie-in, or it was intentional and he is lying. This is still a difficult question, since a crescent, is a simple geometric shape, unlike a swastika, which cannot be mistaken for anything else. I could just as easily say this is the arc of the communist sickle, without the hammer, as well as the the crescent moon of Islam, without the star. It could be a bloody toenail clipping for God's sake.

I keep asking myself how this design, made it through the gauntlet of over a thousand entries, without someone in that process seeing what we all saw on the picture at Malkin's site. I saw it right away. Everybody in the conservative blogosphere saw it right away. But somehow, even families of the flight victims didn't see it.

Having a not so Gay Old Time

Check out this Boston article from the AP.

Gay advocates plan to post names of anti-gay marriage petition signers

Here's a chilling excerpt:
"Everyone's scrambling to know who in their town would sign this," Lang told the Boston Herald. "And this Web site will give gay people the tools to know, to defend themselves and their families, to let them go neighbor-to-neighbor and say, 'I don't appreciate your signing this.'"
Yeah, they just want to 'defend' themselves. This argument sounds sanguine, until you see what else happened in Massachusetts today:

Angry Pro-Gay Demonstators Swarm Over Parental Rights Rally

David Parker was the Lexington parent who made national news because he did not want his children exposed to Gay Lesbian Transgender propaganda materials through the Lexington public schools.

Here's a gem:
As the Parker supporters lined the other side of Bedford street and held their signs, it seemed that the anger of the pro-gay activists increased considerably. One Parker sign-holder was spat on as he walked past a 12-year-old girl. Insults were hurled.
This makes me wonder why Lang really wants to publish those names. So much for all that liberal tolerance and respect for free speech.


Mother Katrina

The MSM shapes it's new hurricane spin strategy.

We should call her "Mother Katrina". We should never call her just Katrina; I don't know her. "Mother Katrina" is her title, and expresses her ceremonial status as a bereaved mother, calling forth over the dead bodies of Bush's victims. She is not just a weather catastrophe now, she is a mother, which is not an expression of her individuality, but rather the expression of her eternal character: the mother, the bringer of political gotchas, who has been wronged by state power. ...We should not use the name of her looters and holdouts. Her looters and holdouts are a symbol of all victims who have been sacrificed for this useless and criminal Bush rescue operation.

(Don't forget to make up a celebrity comment for the cat.)

Commission Impossible

Michelle Malkin is right on the money with her

We are going to endure yet another tedious fact squashing festival of
Bush bashing at taxpayer expense. I wonder if we will get another
round of Washington toilet paper printed from the 'Katrina Commission' report?

Why don't they spend this money on victim relief? It would relieve ALL
of us from suffering through another round of fruitless mud slapping
demagoguery, MSM cesspool butter churning and (Ugh) Joe Biden C-SPAN
camera sex.

Does anyone believe that anyone from Washington will pay any price for any infraction? Don't raise all your hands at once.

Grow Another Cat for Katrina

I followed the US out of the UN Blogroll (Thanks Pirate Steve) to Harvey at Bad Example to RomeoCat at CatHouse Chat's entry in the Carnival of Recipes.

This is the part where I steal RomeoCat's idea. When it comes to charity, plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery. If you haven't visited her post, go there, publish a comment for $$$, put some soup on the stove, then come back here.

RomeoCat has whispered into the little devil kitty's ear about her other comment-for-charity post, which is for Soldiers' Angels Hurricane Relief. Imagine a family worried about their soldier, then the soldier worried about his or her family. Double the worry, double your donation.

So let's grow another Cat. (Picture of kitty courtesy of Hallmark Cards)

Scan Courtesy of Hallmark Cards
The tastefully philanthropic company I work for, offered to match any employee donation, from their personal funds, for Katrina relief, suspending the standard cap for this occasion.

So that being said, for tasteful, unique non-spam comments to this post, I will pony up five bucks apiece. For tasteful unique non-spam trackbacks, from your post, which reference this post, I will pony up ten dollars per track.

Feel free to masquerade as a frustrated moonbat or wingnut bursting with pride. No Hollywood potty mouths please. Any resemblance of the comment posters to actual public figures is a pure fabrication of unrestrained naughtiness.

This time, the Charity is the American Red Cross (Company choice).
My ceiling is $350.
Yippee! The company extended the deadline to Sep. 23rd.

So, this is a potential $700 for victim relief. Hit me!

Please donate your time, money or whatever you can, to Katrina victim relief:
Red Cross
Salvation Army
Technorati ,
Spice up your soup with Basil.

Project Ownership

One of the things I fear, over the Katrina disaster, is the creation of a plethora of LBJ style welfare projects. This would be a cultural disaster. This would be a horrifying reversal of the healing march, toward the destruction of the welfare state.

We now have a property vacuum created by a natural disaster. That vacuum will be filled, one way, or another. The last thing we need is to create another army of government dependents; An army replete with a liberal voting bias. Sheltered citizens must be educated to embrace the concept of self reliance. The Professional Victim advocates will be working feverishly against this goal. There will be a power struggle over hearts and minds. Compassionate conservatives must win this struggle. Welfare projects destroy families and encourage the abrogation of personal responsibility. They plant the seeds of urban blight and suffering.

The most compelling element of President Bush's speech at the RNC convention was the concept of the ownership society. America is stronger, with people owning their own homes. Homeowners guard their own neighborhoods and watch each others children. Homeowners protect their own homes. They work in concert with police, instead of betraying their trust and aide. They are more likely than not, to hold honest jobs, live honest lives and participate in a healthy economy. All of these conditions raise the standard of living in neighborhoods and nurture the health of families. The most powerful nation on earth, was built on this foundation. The welfare state has brought nothing but an ideological plague of rot and termites to attack the foundation, in the guise of liberal compassion.

The Third Wave

The people of New Orleans have been the victims of three tragic waves.

The First Wave

Both the government of Louisiana, and the main stream media are complicit in this wave.

Many decades of stifling, corrupt and impotent government bureaucracy have left the state without the conditions, logistics and infrastructure to deal with an event, which they have been warned about for as long as I have lived. I don't remember a severe hurricane season passing, without hearing the meat puppets in the media doing a what-if? analysis of all the possible tragedies. New Orleans was always on that list.

The second major factor is a sensationalist main stream media. They have desensitized the public towards the danger of powerful hurricanes by sensationalizing every puff of air that wafts over the Gulf. Many people, who should have heeded mandatory evacuation, thought Chicken Little was back. They ignored their duty to keep themselves safe, and put themselves in harm's way.

The Second Wave

Hurricane Katrina came in and devastated the region.

The Third Wave

The same government officials responsible for years of Solon looting and functional recalcitrance, are now exercising their first priority, which is fixing blame, in every direction but the mirror.

The main stream media is now amplifying the tragedy; A tragedy they helped to create in the first wave. They have cranked the volume control on their political amplifier, until the knob has broken off. They are giving the microphone to race baiting politicians. They are giving the camera to gun toting looters. They are vocalizing their own Anti-American brand of analytical invective. They are wringing hands over the junk science of global warming. They are positing ridiculous assertions, that our culture is somehow more lawless and violent, than the victims of the recent tsunami. They are inciting hysteria and heaping criticism on the administration and relief agencies, mere days after the tragedy. They are whipping all this up into a lofty froth, all without any effort to gather real statistics.

All of this despicable behavior is hampering relief. All of the supply speculation hysteria is driving oil futures and gas prices up, for everyone in the country.

The Invisible Army

The Americans, who whine about the government, are only standing in the way of the relief. When you want to find out who has the answers, look to those taking action, not those who are fixing blame. Wasting the national bandwidth on this dreadful haze of malaise only masks the heroic efforts of private citizens and organizations.

Patriotic Americans are people who roll their sleeves up financially, physically or both. Patriotic Americans identify priorities, take action and move toward progress. Patriotic Americans heal their broken brethren, with optimism and the spirit of brotherhood. They are the builders, not wasting valuable energy wallowing in pessimism and self pity. An optimist sees the shiny new opportunities here. New homes, new telecommunications and utility infrastructure, new industry, commerce and jobs will all come from the efforts of optimistic citizens. Americans have always turned tragedy into wealth and opportunity; Always.

We should keep healing and building, with national pride and charity in our hearts. The media, the left and the criminals on the ground are only dangerous, expensive distractions. We need to expunge the mentality of government dependency and restore the mentality of self reliance and pride. All it takes is the right frame of mind, not the left.

A real Victim of PVS and Political Correctness

Please welcome her to Blogger.

I hope she joins the Alliance of free blogs.

And to Vanessa and Ron over at MSN spaces Customer Support; So nice of you to support your customer. Feel free to engage in regressive copulation with your little PVS troll and your friends over at CAIR and the ACLU.
