If you are sipping coffee right now, put. the. cup. down. Trust. Me.
Now go here. That is just WRONG!!!

I just followed a link from Drudge to an article with the headline, “Gore unleashed:Bush is ‘Renegade Rightwing Extremist'”. Sure, Al. From where you live, a centrist is rightwing. I consider Bush a member of the Rockefeller Republicans (as are all neocons!). If a real Conservative were President, Al Gore’s head would explode in protest! (Not a bad thing, I think.)

Q. Why do I hate the United Nations?

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 29, 2006

A. Because they run away from danger. Cowards!!!!

Meant to protect civilians, UN staff have run away from the capital of East Timor after an outbreak of violence. Australian forces stand firm, meanwhile.

I expect nothing less than standing firm for the Aussies are made from sterner stuff than the powder blue skirted helmeted U.N. forces.

The Action Club

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 29, 2006

I should have written about The Action Club earlier, and I am now correcting that mistake since I have today off work.

Here is their Mission Statement:


Mission Statement

To actively work year-round to elect qualified Republican candidates to local and state offices; and

To actively work year-round to effect policy changes which are in keeping with our belief system as it relates to government.


Right now, I believe the big motivator is the illegal alien problem in our country.
They even have a set of tools for us to use to combat this problem and take back our government.

If you are able, join them and/or donate. If you do, I’ll be seeing you at the meetings because I think it is important enough to take a couple of hours off work and join them.

Murtha gets a Smackdown from a Marine

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 29, 2006

Yehudit provides the goods.

I have pasted a small excerpt below:


I am so disturbed by the remarks of Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.) regarding the Haditha incident [“Death Toll Rises in Haditha Attack, GOP Leader Says,” news story, May 20]. Mr. Murtha said, “Our troops overreacted because of the pressure on them, and they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.”

In the United States, we have a civil and military court system that relies on an investigatory and judicial process to make determinations based on evidence. The system is not served by such grand pronouncements of horror and guilt without the accuser even having read the investigative report.


Commentary

Due to the strategy and tactics employed by our enemies in this 4GW type of conflict, Murtha’s reactions could be construed as giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war.

I will quote John Robb on what it will take to win this war, and you decide for yourself whether or not Murtha’s words contribute to the opposite:

Winning a 4GW conflict

Victory in 4GW warfare is won in the moral sphere. The aim of 4GW is to destroy the moral bonds that allows the organic whole to exist — cohesion. This is done by reinforcing the following (according to Boyd):

Menace. Attacks that undermine or threaten basic human survival instincts.
Mistrust. Increases divisions between groups (ie. conservatives and liberals in the US).
Uncertainty. Undermine economic activity by decreasing confidence in the future.

Is it just me, or does it seem the closer we get to victory, the more unhinged progressives and their lapdogs get?

Updated

What? When did 5GW get invented?!?

Smells like Victory to me!!! [response to Anonymous post at 9.51am]

Immigration Bill to Conference Committee

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 28, 2006

Senate Bill 2611 has passed the Senate and will go to Conference Committee soon to try to reconcile it with HR 4437.
As soon as the House and Senate members of this committee are announced, we need to bombard them with phone calls, emails, faxes, and even good oldfashioned letters and postcards. They need to know that we are watching them with intense interest and will remember and remind everyone else how they voted when the next election cycle comes around. I will do my best to keep you informed; however I will point you to some people who are on the point in this battle.

Another action I would suggest is to enlist others to get involved by keeping them informed. Call your local radio talk shows with information about this debate and how their Congressional Delegation has voted. Give out the local office numbers for your senators and representative on the air so people can get involved. Email a link to the NumbersUSA website to your friends. Donate money if you can/or don’t have the time for citizen activism. One more thing, call the White House Comment Line at 202-456-1111 and leave a comment with the operator who answers your call. Be cordial, have a brief comment about your concerns prepared before you call, and stay on topic.

Numbers USA Information


STATUS: On May 25, the Senate concluded work on S. 2611, the “compromise” amnesty bill, when it passed by a 62-36 vote. If the bill became law in its current form, it would create the largest immigration increase in U.S. history – a disaster for American workers and taxpayers. S. 2611 would increase legal immigration by 60 million people over the next 20 years and grant amnesty to an estimated eight to 10 million illegal aliens. The Senate passed the bill despite recent polling indicating that Americans oppose amnesty and want legal immigration numbers reduced. The next step could be a conference committee with the House, which passed a strong enforcement-first immigration reform bill last December.

Immigration bill divide goes from miles to ‘moons apart’

By GEBE MARTINEZ
Copyright 2006 Houston Chronicle Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – Asked recently how effective President Bush might be in upcoming congressional negotiations over an immigration bill, the point man in the House on the issue sidestepped the question.

“We have a great respect for the Senate,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis.

Sensenbrenner’s reaction reflected the anger of many House Republicans toward the president as House and Senate members prepare for negotiations on what has become the president’s top domestic priority.

Because of the wide differences between the bills passed by the two chambers, and because of the sharp divisions among Republicans, the deliberations are expected to be long, acrimonious and possibly futile.

So far, leaders of the House and Senate have not even been able to agree when to begin the conference committee’s negotiations.

“The Senate and House started miles apart, and as a result of some amendments that were offered in the Senate, miles have become moons apart or oceans apart, (making) a difficult task even more so,” Sensenbrenner said.


Let your elected critters know you are against this invasion of The United States of America, and you won’t go quietly into the night!!!
