Osama bin Laden’s Last Will And Testament

With all this idiotic talk and politically correct rhetoric going on about Osama bin Laden’s death, all I have to say is thank God for Saturday Night Live.

Here’s the SNL skit, spoofing bin Laden’s last will and testament.

I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there.

Is it politically correct?  Of course not.  That’s what makes it funny.

What’s more, this blog is blatantly anti-political correctness.  You would know that if you’ve read my other posts.

Go ahead.  I’ll wait.

*Hums the Star Spangled Banner*

Finished?  Ok.

This SNL video absolutely had to be done, in order to restore the sanity of the American public after bin Laden’s death.  I don’t think I could have taken one more ‘was bin Laden’s killing legal‘ or ‘is it right to show  Osama’s death pictures‘ article.  Islamic militants have even made the news, claiming the United States didn’t give Osama bin Laden a proper Muslim burial.

Seriously?

Maybe the world (more specifically the media) has some crazy notion that pre-9/11, things at the bin Laden hideout went something like this:

bin Laden: Ok boys, we’re gonna do this by the book.  Now Anjem, you need to make sure you’re not uttering any racial slurs during the attack.  Screaming that you love Allah is ok, but try not to make anybody feel bad.  Also, let them know how sorry you are for doing this, and that you know how much their families will miss them.

Anjem: Awww…but Osama.  You know how much I like the racial slurs…

bin Laden: Shut up, Anjem.  We are not here to make enemies.  Jaleel!  Listen up!  Be sure to say a Christian prayer, Buddhist chant, and a Jewish minha right before the takeover.  And do the whole crossing-chest thing they do in their churches, so we don’t get accused of being unfair.

Jaleel: But Osama, I can’t do the crossing thing.  Allah will be very angry, and might not give me all my virgins.

bin Laden: Who is running this show, me or you Jaleel?  Allah will understand.  We must do this in the proper, politically correct fashion.  And even though you guys will be dead, rest assured that I will personally call president Bush when this is over, and ask if there is anything that I can do to help.  You know, with the cleaning of the rubble or the burying of their people.  Praise be to Allah, unless that offends anybody.  Anybody?

Why else would they put those jokers on the air?

Newsflash:  The world is afraid of Islam.

It’s more out of fear, than respect or fairness, which is why we’re expected to take the moral high road on this one.  Even president Obama, the leader of the most powerful country in the world, made it a point to say that we weren’t at war with Islam during his national address, the day bin Laden was killed.  Obama also made it clear that America wasn’t the antagonist.

Why don’t you just come out and say it, Mr. President?

Please don’t hurt us.

Obama phrased his address this way because he is afraid of the repercussions of killing the world’s worst terrorist.

Not that vengeance shouldn’t be taken in to account.  But did Obama really need to fall over so overtly in front of the entire country, after commanding our brave soldiers to commit such a noble act just hours earlier?

Take a break already!  Our boys (and girls) earned their moment in the sun.

Of course, president Obama’s official reason for taking a dive at the hands of Islam will be that most of the world’s Muslims are moderate.  Again, we are not at war with moderate Muslims, and he doesn’t want to offend them.  This overplayed rhetoric spills out of  liberal politicians any time Muslims are mentioned, and Obama is no exception.

Hey guys, here’s a revelation!  It’s the Muslim leadership who are the extremists.  And good, moderate followers will do what their leaders tell them.

At least I think that’s how the whole ‘leader-follower’ theory works.  Especially within a religion as strict as Islam.

I’m not just picking on Obama.  The rest of the first-world leaders seem to feel the exact same way.  Just take a look at what is going on across the pond.  Sharia law was implemented for civil court cases in London as far back as 2008.  I’m sure it’s just a matter of time until criminal law follows suit.  That is how Islam is designed–to peacefully get a foothold in the beginning, and then slowly take over the entire community its followers inhabit, using the community’s own sense of fairness and virtue against it.

It is ingenious, really.  And evil.  A master plan for a master race faith.

Seems like something similar happened back in the 1940s.  I can’t quite remember how we handled that.  Oh, World War II, that’s right…

In the end, the rest of the world’s religions aren’t to blame for the hateful, cruel, unjust ways of Sharia law, Islam, or their golden boy, Osama bin Laden.  So why should we pick up the slack?  America (or any other country) is not required to bury terrorists according to their faith, nor to handle bin Laden’s corpse with kid gloves, just because other terrorists will be upset if we don’t.

They’re terrorists.  They want to kill us and everyone and every thing we love.  The last thing we should be thinking about is whether or not we owe them some kind of polite courtesy.

Giving a bully your lunch money, and telling him what a nice guy he is, is a very temporary solution.

History has shown that when Islam conquers another group of people, it doesn’t usually matter whether the conquered group was submissive/remorseful about previous acts or not.  As staunch as the Muslim faith is, we unbelievers are condemned to inferiority and dhimmitude simply because we are not Muslims.  That is our crime, and as far as Islam is concerned, it is unforgivable.

A couple verses from the “peaceful” Koran should let you know just where you, as an infidel, stand with Muslims (thanks to thereligionofpeace.com for these excerpts):

O ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty.(9:123)

Or how about:

Shall we tell you of those who lose most in respect of their deeds?  Those whose efforts have been wasted in this life, while they thought that they were acquiring good by their works?  They are those who deny the Signs of their Lord and the fact of their having to meet Him (in the Hereafter): vain will be their works, nor shall We, on the Day of Judgment, give them any weight.  That is their reward, Hell, because they rejected Faith, and took My Signs and My Messengers by way of jest. (18:103-106)

As this last passage clearly states, it doesn’t matter whether you think you are accomplishing good deeds or not, if you don’t believe in Allah, you are nothing, and bound for hell.  It is painfully obvious that it will do us no good to try to appease Islam, whether or not we believe our prior actions to be wrong.  They simply don’t care.

The leaders of the free world and liberal society are attempting in vain to gain the trust and respect of Muslims, when according to their beliefs, as proven above, it just isn’t possible.

We are not going to apologize for making fun of Osama bin Laden.  He killed thousands of innocent Americans.  It’s literally the least we could do.

Unlike the politicians, most American people are not afraid, simply watchful and concerned.  As long as we have our military and Second Amendment rights, the citizens of this great nation will do just fine.

I would like to thank SNL for their damn-near masterpiece.  You kids did all right.

What a fine, comical end to such a waste of human skin.

BREAKING NEWS: Osama bin Laden Is Dead

Osama bin Laden has been reported dead, and reports say that the United States has the body. I will update with more information as it’s reported.

President Obama is scheduled to speak at 10:30 ET. Whether or not it will be about bin Laden has yet to be revealed.

UPDATE #1:

According to Fox News, Osama bin Laden was killed last week by US missile strikes.

UPDATE #2:

CNN reports that bin Laden was killed by US Navy Seals earlier today, confirmed earlier in president Obama’s address to the nation.

TRANSCRIPT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SPEECH:

“Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

It was nearly 10 years ago that a bright September day was darkened by the worst attack on the American people in our history. The images of 9/11 are seared into our national memory — hijacked planes cutting through a cloudless September sky; the Twin Towers collapsing to the ground; black smoke billowing up from the Pentagon; the wreckage of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where the actions of heroic citizens saved even more heartbreak and destruction.

And yet we know that the worst images are those that were unseen to the world. The empty seat at the dinner table. Children who were forced to grow up without their mother or their father. Parents who would never know the feeling of their child’s embrace. Nearly 3,000 citizens taken from us, leaving a gaping hole in our hearts.

On September 11, 2001, in our time of grief, the American people came together. We offered our neighbors a hand, and we offered the wounded our blood. We reaffirmed our ties to each other, and our love of community and country. On that day, no matter where we came from, what God we prayed to, or what race or ethnicity we were, we were united as one American family.
We were also united in our resolve to protect our nation and to bring those who committed this vicious attack to justice. We quickly learned that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by al Qaeda — an organization headed by Osama bin Laden, which had openly declared war on the United States and was committed to killing innocents in our country and around the globe. And so we went to war against al Qaeda to protect our citizens, our friends, and our allies.

Over the last 10 years, thanks to the tireless and heroic work of our military and our counterterrorism professionals, we’ve made great strides in that effort. We’ve disrupted terrorist attacks and strengthened our homeland defense. In Afghanistan, we removed the Taliban government, which had given bin Laden and al Qaeda safe haven and support. And around the globe, we worked with our friends and allies to capture or kill scores of al Qaeda terrorists, including several who were a part of the 9/11 plot.

Yet Osama bin Laden avoided capture and escaped across the Afghan border into Pakistan. Meanwhile, al Qaeda continued to operate from along that border and operate through its affiliates across the world.

And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network.

Then, last August, after years of painstaking work by our intelligence community, I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground. I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice.

Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. A small team of Americans carried out the operation with extraordinary courage and capability. No Americans were harmed. They took care to avoid civilian casualties. After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body.

For over two decades, bin Laden has been al Qaeda’s leader and symbol, and has continued to plot attacks against our country and our friends and allies. The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat al Qaeda.

Yet his death does not mark the end of our effort. There’s no doubt that al Qaeda will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must –- and we will — remain vigilant at home and abroad.

As we do, we must also reaffirm that the United States is not –- and never will be -– at war with Islam. I’ve made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam. Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader; he was a mass murderer of Muslims. Indeed, al Qaeda has slaughtered scores of Muslims in many countries, including our own. So his demise should be welcomed by all who believe in peace and human dignity.

Over the years, I’ve repeatedly made clear that we would take action within Pakistan if we knew where bin Laden was. That is what we’ve done. But it’s important to note that our counterterrorism cooperation with Pakistan helped lead us to bin Laden and the compound where he was hiding. Indeed, bin Laden had declared war against Pakistan as well, and ordered attacks against the Pakistani people.

Tonight, I called President Zardari, and my team has also spoken with their Pakistani counterparts. They agree that this is a good and historic day for both of our nations. And going forward, it is essential that Pakistan continue to join us in the fight against al Qaeda and its affiliates.

The American people did not choose this fight. It came to our shores, and started with the senseless slaughter of our citizens. After nearly 10 years of service, struggle, and sacrifice, we know well the costs of war. These efforts weigh on me every time I, as Commander-in-Chief, have to sign a letter to a family that has lost a loved one, or look into the eyes of a service member who’s been gravely wounded.

So Americans understand the costs of war. Yet as a country, we will never tolerate our security being threatened, nor stand idly by when our people have been killed. We will be relentless in defense of our citizens and our friends and allies. We will be true to the values that make us who we are. And on nights like this one, we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al Qaeda’s terror: Justice has been done.

Tonight, we give thanks to the countless intelligence and counterterrorism professionals who’ve worked tirelessly to achieve this outcome. The American people do not see their work, nor know their names. But tonight, they feel the satisfaction of their work and the result of their pursuit of justice.

We give thanks for the men who carried out this operation, for they exemplify the professionalism, patriotism, and unparalleled courage of those who serve our country. And they are part of a generation that has borne the heaviest share of the burden since that September day.

Finally, let me say to the families who lost loved ones on 9/11 that we have never forgotten your loss, nor wavered in our commitment to see that we do whatever it takes to prevent another attack on our shores.

And tonight, let us think back to the sense of unity that prevailed on 9/11. I know that it has, at times, frayed. Yet today’s achievement is a testament to the greatness of our country and the determination of the American people.

The cause of securing our country is not complete. But tonight, we are once again reminded that America can do whatever we set our mind to. That is the story of our history, whether it’s the pursuit of prosperity for our people, or the struggle for equality for all our citizens; our commitment to stand up for our values abroad, and our sacrifices to make the world a safer place.

Let us remember that we can do these things not just because of wealth or power, but because of who we are: one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Thank you. May God bless you. And may God bless the United States of America.”

Obama Lies To America About Origin Of Mexican Cartels’ Guns

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

That, in a nutshell folks, is the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.  It’s a right that

every United States citizen has, including you.  A right that allows a person to defend him/herself using firearms.  One I whole-heartedly support.

Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but many liberal presidential administrations have tried to regulate the Second Amendment to the point of near non-existence.  It’s been a fight between the liberals and conservatives for a long time.  The right wing says we need our guns to defend ourselves against intruders and tyrannical government, the left says “guns kill people, get rid of them”.

Though many tactics have been used over the years by each side to try to implement their policies on gun control, there’s one group that has crossed the line.  The Obama administration is that group.

The story is a bit convoluted, so I’ll start at the beginning.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, there is a drug war going on in Mexico.  The Mexican drug cartels are killing hundreds of innocent people every week in a turf war of drastic proportions.  Many of the weapons used in this southern war include military-grade machine guns, grenades and ammunition; though some of these weapons were acquired from countries like Guatemala and Nicaragua, most come from the United States, verified via serial number.

The cartels have grown so powerful that the Mexican government and law enforcement have been rendered powerless.  The nefarious cartels have even begun invading the United States, coercing American teens and street gangs to become hitmen and distributors for their enterprises.

I mention the Mexican drug war because it’s the newest reason for arguing in favor of tighter gun control laws here in the States.  Supposedly, the cartels have been coming across the US border to buy their guns from small, privately owned gun stores.  At least that’s what president Obama told America.

Here’s the quote, via Fox News

“More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that line our border,” president Obama said in February 2009.

Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in a gun store.  I’ve never seen military-grade weapons or grenades for sale.  The ATF would have a field day with any privately owned store that attempted to sell such items.

As it turns out, our illustrious president told a bold-faced lie.  And thanks to Wikileaks, we now know the truth.

Courtesy of Topnews.in

Leaked cables revealed that not only did the Obama administration know where the weapons came from prior to the public statement from the president, but proved that it was our own government who sold them.  The Department of Defense and the State Department were the “mom and pop” gun stores who sold military-grade weapons to Mexico.

Weapons that are now in the hands of ruthless killers.

President Obama wasn’t the only individual who was in on the lie.  US Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew the score too.

Of course the Obama administration will argue that they didn’t sell the guns directly to the cartels, but to the Mexican government; the bottom line is they lied to the American people about selling the weapons in the first place.  This is an administration that simply cannot be trusted.

The big question is: Why isn’t the Obama administration being held accountable?

Not only for their lies, but for their actions.  Our government knowingly sold guns to a government that lacks security and is rife with corruption.  Now those guns are being used by criminals to commit unspeakable acts against innocent people.  And those acts are rapidly migrating north of the US/Mexico border.

But it’s a crime for United States citizens to sell guns across state lines.

Maybe Obama has loftier goals than just disarming American citizens and depriving us of our Second Amendment rights.

Why else would he provide a means to attack innocent Mexican citizens, let alone his fellow countrymen?



Politically Correct Thinking Is Now A Confirmed Mental Illness: Part 2

Hey there boys-n-girls, I’ve got a joke for you.

What do you get when you cross a Mexican with an octopus?

“Uh…I dunno.  What?”

I don’t know either, but I bet it sure is good at picking lettuce.

Ha!

So.  Are you offended?

Now take a look at this short video.

How about now?

I know the audio isn’t very good, so I’ll explain to you what’s going on here.

That video is a recording of democratic California congresswoman Loretta Sanchez being interviewed on a liberal radio show, talking about her experiences meeting members of the Tea Party.  She’s using a southern accent to represent, well, apparently all of them.

Here’s a transcript of what she said:

Sanchez: “Hey, what’s your name?”

Tea Party member: “My name is M-O-E.”

Sanchez: “Ok Moe. Moe-ster.  How you doing baby?  What are we going to do today?  What’s your interest?  What can we work on together?”

Tea Party member: “Well, it’s unconstitutional.”

Courtesy of Hillbilly Chic.

So not only are all Tea Party members southern, but I guess they’re stupid too, because all they can say, according to Sanchez, is that everything is unconstitutional.  If I were Sanchez, I’d bet they all have stills in their backyards and bring gallons of that “white lightnin” to every one of their get-togethers.

Out in the sticks, of course.  With a few banjos and some corn-cob pipes.

Now are you offended?

Well, according to society, no matter what has been said or done, if you’re a Caucasian, you shouldn’t be.

Let me rephrase that.  You’re not allowed to be.  You should just take it as a joke.

So let’s turn the tables for a minute.

What if, say, Mitt Romney had told that Mexican joke I mentioned above at a campaign function?

“Oh no he di-int!”

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it would be ‘Hands Across America’.  Every Latino worth his salt would be out the next day, protesting at his state legislature.  And it would make national news.

Heck, ol’ Mitt would probably earn himself a visit from the ACLU.

But what about Sanchez?  What’s going on with that?

Since I’m guessing that this post is the first you’ve heard of the story, not much.

Hmmm.  Seems like I’ve mentioned this type of politically correct behavior before.

This is how political correctness tears society apart.  There’s one set of rules for one group, and another set for others.  With both sides being at odds all the time, somebody is going to feel neglected and put-upon when all is said and done.

Politically correct behavior is insane.  We’re like a bunch of little kids, getting mad at other kids for calling us names.  Like we’re five years old or something.

“Mooooom.  Jimmy called me a dog-faced booger eater.”

You know what my mom would have said? 

“Call him one back.”

I would have, and we would have left it at that.

America, we won’t make it as a nation divided.  It’s impossible.  So let’s put aside these petty differences and focus on the important things in life.  God, family, and country.

For God’s sake, whatever happened to the old “Sticks and Stones” mantra??

If you walk away from this post having learned nothing else, please take this saying to heart:

A house divided will not stand.”

I wonder who said that?



Mexican Drug War Is Now In Your Backyard

I visited Mexico once when I was a little kid.  My dad, brothers, sister and I were down in southern

Courtesy of ABC News

California one summer visiting my uncle who lived in Anaheim, when my dad got this adventurous notion and declared that he’d like to see another country.

So off we went, to the land of awesome burritos and the birthplace of dollar Corona beers.

When we arrived at the border crossing, just south of San Diego, we all thought it was so cool that we were going to be in another country.  We were going to be the envy of our classmates, who we’d presumed had never been out of their own neighborhoods, much less the United states.  The border guard checked my dad’s driver’s license and in a few quick seconds, we arrived in Tijuana.

My father stopped just inside the border to get his bearings, and almost immediately we were approached by a Mexican fellow who began furiously washing our windshield with a newspaper.  Dad tried to politely explain that we didn’t need our windshield washed, but the guy just continued, and when he was done, he held out his hand and smiled.  We gave him a dollar, he nodded in thanks, and moved on to the next sucker.

Then came the tour guides.  In case you didn’t know, almost everyone at the US/Tijuana border is a tour guide.  We had at least four people approach our car, telling us they could take us to see all the sites that their beautiful country had to offer.

All this seemed a little strange to us Americans.   When the last of the tour guides left, dad turned the car around and we headed back the United States.  We’d seen enough.  It was actually kind of scary being in another country for the first time, considering the experience we’d all just had.

This was back in the mid 1980s, when Mexico had a government that could halfway control its citizens.  While we were there, we didn’t witness any kidnappings or drug deals.  There weren’t gangs of cartel members with AK-47’s trying to carjack us or force us into being mules.

But all that has changed.

If you’ve turned on the news at any time in the last couple years, you know about the drug wars going on south of the US border.  Hundreds of innocent people are being killed every week by the cartels, who have almost created a state of anarchy in a once peaceful country.

So what.  That’s happening in Mexico, not here.

Nice attitude, Zippy.

But you’re wrong.

According to an article I read on AOL news today, the Mexican drug cartels are invading our country en masse as I write this post.  While the government is busy arguing the politics surrounding  illegal immigration, Mexican gangsters are growing marijuana in our national parks, and setting up intricate interstate drug trafficking routes that span the country.  Drug intelligence officials say that cartels have infiltrated at least 230 cities across the US.

Along with the drugs, these cartels bring cash.  Tons of it.

And it’s burning a hole in their collective pocket.

To get rid of some of that blood money, these cartels are hiring American teenagers to be hitmen for them.  They’re paying American gangs to be their distribution networks.  And they’re buying more guns.  Military-issue assault rifles to be exact.

“Holy crap.  This is an epidemic.  Call out the National Guard!  Let’s get some soldiers to the border to stop this RIGHT NOW!”

Hold on there, Rambo.  We can’t do that.  Most of our troops are overseas fighting for oil, instead of being here at home protecting American citizens.  And while the cat’s away, the mice will play.

So, you may be wondering, has Washington even noticed?

Of course they have.  Don’t you have any faith in our corrupt political leaders?

They noticed enough to say that according to federal standards, the Mexican cartels’ actions don’t

This was on the same page as the article where Washington claimed that "Mexican violence is not an emergency." Rather ironic.

qualify as an emergency.

If over 34,000 dead Mexican citizens, who died because of the violence just beyond our southern border, doesn’t qualify as an emergency, I don’t know what does.  And now that crap is migrating north, into our own backyards.  Even more of a reason to be alarmed.

Our government isn’t even worried about the cartels per se.  They’re only worried about the illegal flow of weapons into Mexico.  Well they won’t have to worry about that much any more, because the cartels have obviously found a new home.  One with free medical benefits, food stamps, free housing, and more new customers than you can shake a stick at.

I can see only one solution to this problem.  And it needs to be implemented immediately.

Bring our troops home and have them seal off the borders.  Send our soldiers into Mexico to help quell the violence that will one day overrun our country.

We would be better off helping our neighbors than occupying a country that doesn’t want our assistance.

Heck, it’s even been rumored that Hezbollah, a militant Muslim extremist group, is using Mexican drug smuggling routes to enter the United States.

So where do you think we should focus our efforts?


G.E. Pays Zero Taxes In 2010

“We bring good things to life.”

Ok, all of you commercial watchers and reality show addicts.  Whose slogan is that?

I’ll give you a hint.  They make light bulbs.  And microwaves.  Even refrigerators.

Still stumped?

Last hint:  This company was bailed out by the government with taxpayer money, sent thousands of high-paying jobs overseas, and made $14 billion in profits it 2010.

Oh! Oh! Pick me! I know!

The answer to today’s question is General Electric, more commonly known as G.E.  Founded in 1892, the now multi-billion dollar conglomerate produces common household appliances, as well as engines for fighter and commercial jets.  They also *ahem* designed the leaking nuclear reactors for the Japanese Fukushima nuclear power plant.

As if you didn’t already know that.

“Ok Sonny Jim, since you’re writing about them, they must be inherently evil.  What did they do?  Help the Nazis?  Fund terrorism? Conduct electrical experiments on blind lambs?”

Worse.  They took food out of the mouths of millions of Americans.  By not paying one red cent in taxes in 2010.  In fact, G.E. and its legion of tax lawyers managed to finagle a $3.2 billion tax credit out of the American government last year.

They didn’t pay anything in 2009 either.  And it was all perfectly legal.

“What the hell?”

It seems that if you want to avoid paying taxes in America, but still sell your goods to its citizens, all you have to do is hire a bunch of lawyers, then move half of your operations overseas.  In effect, they hung around until the going got tough.  Right before the recession hit, they laid off 21,000 workers, dumped a bunch of toxic waste, and skipped town.

This is where things get really stupid.  After leaving a gaping hole in America’s economy and its workforce, CEO of General Electric Jeffery Immelt, was appointed by president Obama to become our nation’s “job czar”, for lack of a better term.  Gee, that wasn’t premeditated or anything.

“Here ya go, Jeff.  I know you bailed on America in her time of need, and I’d like to reward you for your cowardly efforts.  You think maybe we could get Taiwan to train the Marines, you know, to save a couple bucks?”

Our founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves.

I’ve been saying for years that America needs to refer back to the KISS way of doing business (that’s Keep It Simple Stupid for those of you who don’t know). Every corporation and individual should pay a flat percentage when it comes to taxes.  There would be no more loopholes or confusing tax law.  We could close down the IRS (please keep your applause to a minimum) and retrain the agents to be useful government employees.  And extraordinarily wealthy companies like G.E. would be held accountable when April rolled around.

It’s only fair.

They say that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes.

Well, only one if you’re rich.



Politically Correct Thinking Is Now A Confirmed Mental Illness: Part 1

Political correctness.  It’s the bane of our society.  People who are politically correct are hyper sensitive about any topic that they encounter, whether it deserves that kind of attention or not.  As my grandma would say, they’re worried about something that “doesn’t amount to a hill of beans” when it comes right down to it.

Heck, I remember back in the day, when granny used to….

“C’mon Sonny Jim, step down off the soapbox and get to the point.”

Ah yes.  Political correctness.

I have a question for you, my fine reader.  Is it possible to be reverse politically correct?  Watch this video, and afterwards, I’ll explain what I mean.

After watching this video myself, I believe I’ve come up with a new phenomenon.  Since I discovered it, it’s only right that I should be the one to name it.  Thus, I christen my new discovery “reverse political correctness”.

As you may or may not know, the dark skinned fellow in the video, Bobby Ghosh, is the deputy international editor of Time magazine.  And he has committed the first act of reverse political correctness known to man.

Now, Bobby struck me as a regular politically correct person.  I think it’s a job requirement for employment with any modern media outlet these days.  Especially if you’re an international deputy editor.  Wow, what a title!

But ol’ Bobby Ghosh proved me wrong.  In case you missed it, Ghosh goes on record as saying (and I’m paraphrasing here) that burning a Qu’ran is much worse than burning a Bible, because clearly the Qu’ran is written by God, while the Bible is written by men.

Did you see it?  Right there.  Reverse political correctness!

This truly is a proud day for me.

I’ve already planned on how to spend the money I make from this discovery.  But that’s a post for another day…

Of course, I’m being facetious.  Reverse political correctness doesn’t really exist.  Sadly, double standards do exist, and not in favor of Christians.

When Terry Jones burned a Qu’ran back in March of this year, there was international outrage.  Heck, there are still protests being held and people being hurt in the Middle East to this day over the event.  The sad thing is that there seems to be more media coverage on the burning of an inanimate object than of the people actually being hurt by the protests.

Apparently it’s ok to say derogatory or ignorant things about Christians or the Bible.  And these comments don’t fall in the category of “not being politically correct”.  If they did the media would be in a frenzy over the above video, like they are when anyone says anything negative about any other religion/race/lifestyle/etc. that society deems a protected commodity.

Instead, this video had a lousy 2000 views last time I checked.  It barely even rated an obscure news article.

In the end, I’d have to say grandma was right.  As far as protecting peoples’ rights goes, political correctness hasn’t “amounted to a hill of beans.”

In fact, the protesters in Afghanistan burned more Qu’rans than Terry Jones ever thought of destroying.  In protest of burning a Qu’ran.

Figure that one out.
