Three weeks off

Well I have been gone for a few weeks, had some issues that needed to be taken care of and I think things should be set for a bit now. In my absence I have not really kept up on the news that much, the kids are more important. In fact I plan to do more of that and less of the whole watching every second of the news wires. I will explain why below..

My son has become extremely interested in Dinosaurs. It is so funny to watch him mimic their roar. Let me tell you that all of them, even the Brontosaurus, sound like a T-Rex. He bounces them along the table or floor, even the windows have become a virtual dinosaur stomping ground. He does have it correct though and has the T-Rex eating the Brontosaurus and other plant eaters. So at least he has that part right, just hope that when he enters pre-school this fall he doesn't fall victim to the feminization that seems to be happening to our young boys today.

I say feminist's because at my new job I work with some teenagers, and my daughter has brought over a couple boys that is in the neighborhood. These boys think it is ok to wear girl pants, both ears are pierced, and they would rather play with Barbie doll's or some other doll than talk about cars, women, or sports. I tell you this is not natural for young boys in their teenage years to be doing all of this. When I was 15 my only thought was on getting my license so I could make it to basketball or football practice, and chasing the young girls or taking them out for a date so I could get a kiss. I surely didn't want to play dolls with them and I would never be caught wearign their clothes or piercing both ears so I could wear hoop earrings. The left ear with a stud looks fairly good for a guy, not that I would do that but I would not think nothing of it. The boys that that would paint their nails got razed for it and maybe these boys do too I am not sure. I just know that it is not normal to dress or think that way for a young man.

My kids are great and they act as they should, just have to make sure that it stays that way. I will return to my daily postings though as I do not want to see this blog go the way of the dodo.

Good to be back

Middle East slugging it out

I am sure many of you have b een keeping tabs on the recent developments in the Middle East. It all started with hamas taking the Israeli Solider, and then escalated with Israel bombing Hamas. Then we had Hezbollah kidnapping two soldiers. Israel group stating they have kidnapped some, Now we have all out war happening with some of Europe saying too much force by Israel or condemning them out right. To the US saying that Israel has a right to defend its self. I think it sums it up quite nice

There is definetly a lot going on and those that believe that the end of times is coming have something else to point to.

Nation's Capital Declares Crime Emergency

Nation's Capital Declares Crime Emergency
Jul 12 11:26 AM US/Eastern


Two groups of tourists were robbed at gunpoint on the National Mall, just hours after the police chief declared a crime emergency in the city in response to a string of violence that included the killing of a British activist.

The activist, Alan Senitt, was attacked in the Georgetown area on Sunday, his throat was slit and police say the attackers attempted to rape his companion. It was the 13th homicide in the city this month. Robberies are up 14 percent, and armed assaults have jumped 18 percent in the past 30 days.

On Wednesday, U.S. Park Police were looking for connections between the latest Mall robberies and three similar incidents in the area in late May. There have been no arrests in any of those cases.

On Tuesday night, two women from Texas were robbed at gunpoint by two men dressed in all black, said U.S. Park Police Sgt. Scott Fear. About 15 minutes later, a family of four from Missouri was robbed by suspects with the same description, he said.

It seems that the Democrats are finally taking the streets back in DC, Convict populations tend to vote democrat 65-90% after all. It is a sad day when law biding citizens have to fear for their lives because the Democrats and their cohorts are finally gaining the balls to show us what they are exactly like. I hope the police in DC can get this under wraps soon; we might need a few more prisons so we can lock up the rest of the democrat leadership. In fact I will not be surprised to find out that the three committing these hold up are Kennedy, Schumer and Hillary. We all know how much they keep clamoring about how we are not paying enough in taxes.

FDA siezes 1600 lbs of Chicken, pork, and goose from Troy Warehouse

This report is for fellow Michiganders, Channel 4 reported on this at 11:15 am this morning. Going through my daily news sites and I stumbled upon this.

Hundreds of pounds of illegally imported meat and chicken have been confiscated by federal and state investigators.The U.S. Department of Agriculture worked with the Michigan Department of Agriculture on a raid at a Troy warehouse. Investigators found chicken, goose and pork products from areas in China affected by Bird Flu, Local 4 reported.USDA investigators seized more than 1,600 pounds of illegally imported poultry and pork products, the station reported. Most of the products were mislabeled and put in boxes that read frozen tilapia, according to the report.

Now we do not have much on this and I will try to stay abreast of it today as more information comes out.

Bob Novak names his source

BOB NOVAK, My Leak Case Testimony: 'I learned Valerie Plame's name from Joe Wilson's entry in 'Who's Who in America'... MORE Published reports that I took the Fifth Amendment, made a plea bargain with the prosecutors or was a prosecutorial target were all untrue... MORE... My primary source has not come forward to identify himself... Bill Harlow, the CIA public information officer who was my CIA source for the column confirming Mrs. Wilson's identity. I learned Valerie Plame's name from Joe Wilson's entry in 'Who's Who in America'... I answered questions using the names of Rove, Harlow and my primary source.

Follow the Title for the full article.


I highlighted for those in la-la land, namely liberals who do not seem to have an IQ above 67. Well it seems we finally have the culprit that ousted the CIA agent in the Plame leak case. It was her husband, now I want to know if we will finally see the person who ousted this agent put behind bars, and if Joe Wilson is not imprisoned then Fitzy boy best be giving back the tax payers money for this witch hunt he led.

As seems to be the normal operating procedure, the Democrats and the Liberal Media that have been on this case now for, what is it 3 years? Are proven wrong, they put their eggs in one basket and counted on a known liar, named Joe Wilson, to deliver them their enemies head on a silver platter. It as always is about what is in their best interest not what is in the best interest of our Country.

I will not be holding my breath and wait for the apology to Rove, Libby, the President and Vice President from the hate filled left. May their souls rot in hell for wasting our tax dollars on something that most of us with a decent IQ, namely Republicans and some Independents, knew from the get go. What a load of BS, I want my tax dollars back and if we do not get the check back in a timely fashion every citizen of this country should file on for the class action law suit against Fitzy Boy and end his career.

Olmert says no Deal with Hamas

Interesting turn of events, Olmert says that they will not deal with the terrorist organization known as Hamas. The article was broke on AP at around 2:34 PM today, while viewing todays news stories it caught my attention.

Other stories In the last hour are U.N. vote on North Korea resolution delayed,

"U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said Washington would look at any Chinese suggestions for changes, and the council would reevaluate "on a daily basis" whether to proceed with a vote."

Space walkers help repair space shuttle,

"Astronauts Piers Sellers and Michael Fossum started their 6 1/2-hour spacewalk by removing a severed cable reel from a crucial rail car on the space station with a simple pull. The cable provides power, video and data to the car.

"We're getting a workout," Fossum said."

Lopez Obrador Files Challenge in Mexico,

Aguilar said he was confident that a campaign launched by Calderon's rival, leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, to overturn Calderon's lead would be peaceful. And he dismissed the idea that the country, torn between the two candidates, would come to a standstill.

"The ability to govern is absolutely guaranteed," he said.

These are some of the main stories from the last hour, quite a bit going on today.

Japan wakes up, will China and our leaders finally do the right thing

Well I have to say it is about time that someone near North Korea started taking them serious. With the recent development of Japan talking about a possible strike, the US talking about deploying the patriot missile system to Japan and South Korea it will help make that region a bit safer. We all know that the little man in the North is just as Looney as anyone on the left today. This is probably why Clinton gave him the damn nuclear reactors to begin with, of course the left is conveniently forgetting this part and the talks that they, the Clinton Administration, held in 1994. Talks by the way that didn’t include any of North Koreans neighbors, and the left seems to forget that it was Jimmy Carter that assured us all that the little man from North Korea would not use those reactors to attain a nuclear bomb.

So what do we have now? Well we have another dictator that is loved by the leftist of the world threatening all out war if the US doesn’t bow down and talk to them alone. Or if the US acts in its best interest and knocks one of those missiles down before they get off the launching pad. I think the US and others made a huge mistake by allowing the little man from North Korea an opportunity to launch his missiles. They were able to garner great scientific data by those failed launches and the next missile that is launched might just have a nuclear tip and land on our West coast, then what will be the spin from the lefties at that time?

As I said in the opening paragraph, at least the Japanese are taking this crack pot serious. Now if we can get the Chinese on board we just might be able to diffuse this situation without an all out war, one which will show the world exactly why the US is the lone super power and that their dreams of a World where China is equal to the US is just that a pipe dream. I might make a suggestion to our leaders sitting in Washington wringing their fat little hands about this situation, DO SOMETHING FOR US THIS TIME NOT FOR WHAT YOU THINK THE WORLD NEEDS!

Warner Is Uncertain on Legislation for Tribunals, WTF!

Warner Is Uncertain on Legislation for Tribunals


Published: July 1, 2006

WASHINGTON, June 30 — A leading Senate Republican said Friday that he was not sure that Congress should pass legislation to create new military tribunals for terror suspects, a stance that raised doubts about prospects for a White House plan to establish an alternative to the commissions struck down this week by the Supreme Court.

The senator, John W. Warner of Virginia, the chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said he had not yet decided what course Congress should take. But Mr. Warner, who will preside over hearings on the issue in July, said he was concerned that new tribunals, even if authorized by Congress, might not withstand judicial scrutiny.

"We're going to do this extremely carefully and accurately, or we're going to end up with a solution that once again ends up being the subject of litigation, and possibly being overturned," Mr. Warner said in an interview in his office.

The scope of the court's decision stunned the White House and Congress, forcing the House and Senate to rearrange their limited summer legislative calendar to address the issue. Lawmakers from both parties said Friday that they hoped to reach agreement by the end of summer on a new plan to bring terror suspects to trial…

I got this little tidbit from the NYT, I have a few thoughts on this and I just can not see where the hell the court is coming from on this.

First let’s consider the people involved in this, they do not come from one specific country, and they do not wear a uniform. They behead their prisoners, they torture, the real torture not the Abu-grab kind where they wear underwear on their heads and made to crawl around naked either. They repeatedly state that they want to kill or subjugate all non-believers. They get in an uproar over a cartoon of a rapist and murderer, but wish to silence any other form of religion. These are not some damn boy scouts we are dealing with here. All the people in Gitmo were found shooting at our troops. This makes them enemy combatants, not some peaceniks that were out in the middle of the desert having a picnic.

From the Geneva Convention and honestly ask yourself if the Terrorists are acting in accordance with this convention.

“Article 13

Prisoners of war must at all times be humanely treated. Any unlawful act or omission by the Detaining Power causing death or seriously endangering the health of a prisoner of war in its custody is prohibited, and will be regarded as a serious breach of the present Convention. In particular, no prisoner of war may be subjected to physical mutilation or to medical or scientific experiments of any kind which are not justified by the medical, dental or hospital treatment of the prisoner concerned and carried out in his interest.

Likewise, prisoners of war must at all times be protected, particularly against acts of violence or intimidation and against insults and public curiosity.

Measures of reprisal against prisoners of war are prohibited.

Article 14

Prisoners of war are entitled in all circumstances to respect for their persons and their honour. Women shall be treated with all the regard due to their sex and shall in all cases benefit by treatment as favourable as that granted to men. Prisoners of war shall retain the full civil capacity which they enjoyed at the time of their capture. The Detaining Power may not restrict the exercise, either within or without its own territory, of the rights such capacity confers except in so far as the captivity requires.”

Found here

I will admit they need to have a trial, not some civilian trial but a military trial. They were caught in time of war that means they fall under the military courts. Because they do not wear a uniform and are not from one country they do not get the protections of the Geneva Convention either. I will concede that they might be covered if they (the terrorists) followed it too, which they are not. If you think beheading prisoners of war are ok, torturing is ok for them, why do you have such a problem with a little underwear and humiliation?

I think that the court overstepped its power here; we are at war with a group of people that have declared war on us prior to 9/11. They have repeatedly attacked us throughout the last 30 years with little to no response from previous Presidents. The Kobalt Towers, ’93 WTC, Plane Hijackings, Embassy bombings, hostages taken in the 1980’s, The USS Cole, Marine barracks being blown up. All of these happened in the last 26 years, most of them happened about 1985-2000, then we had 9/11 that is when we as a nation finally woke up. Well at least for a little while, it seems that the liberals are winning this battle as more and more Americans fall back into that sense of everything is ok and will be from here on out.

Mark my word, if these killers are not brought to justice by the right courts, then the Military should stop taking prisoners. Because what is the use of letting them out because some “mamby”,” pamby” POS liberal judge lets them off. These people are not US citizens and are not afforded the protection under our constitution; they are not wearing a uniform from a country and are not protected by the Geneva Convention. The penalty for spies during war is death. Anyone caught shooting at our troops should be shot dead and not taken alive. That would solve the problem with the liberals in the country and the world.

So hopefully Warner and the rest of the Republicans will rise to the challenge and limit the damage done by the courts. So much for a Conservative court eh? Never in my life have I seen such a disregard for the People they are supposed to protect. It is this reason and this reason alone that I have a hard time every finding myself voting for another Democrat. Till they start to view this as "What is best for America" and not "What will the rest of the world think" they can not be trusted with stewardship of this country. I am ashamed to say that I voted for this part in every election uptill 2004.

Intersting article

"How come there's never any cash in the checking account?"

How many times have you asked yourself that question? You know the business is making money. The Profit and Loss statement shows a profit every month. You are constantly signing checks to pay the quarterly tax payments. Every time you go to the bank for a ninety day note, your banker agrees without batting an eye -- just passes over the papers for your signatures.

And he tells you, "That business of yours sure cranks out the profits and it just keeps growing. What a gem."

But where's the cash?

If your business is growing at a rate of 30% a year, and your gross profit is 25%, you will always be out of cash. It's amazing, but unless the business generates high profits, even moderate growth will kill a business. The business can survive only as long as it has sufficient credit to borrow money -- more money each time it goes to the bank. But when the debt service closes in on the cash flow, any downturn in sales, or slowdown in collections, or increase in costs can stop the availability of credit.

How do you increase profits? Raising prices is a good way to start. My barber understands the supply/demand curve as well as anybody I know. He runs a one-man shop and works only by appointments. When he starts to see new faces looking for appointments (more demand), he raises his prices. Certainly some of the old customers leave and try another barber but they soon come back (he's that good.).....
