Peace Mom or Radical America Hater?

Sorry mom....but I have to write this.

Right now the person in America enjoying her 15 minutes way too much is Cindy Sheehan. I have kept from writing about this person for the first 14 minutes and even had a big argument with my mother over her, but I cannot keep it in anymore.

Why does the left-wing fully embrace crackpots? Why not check out their latest leader in Bush bashing first before anointing he or she the leader of the anti-war movement or the "no WMD" bean spiller? If the left wing wanted any credibility, it would stop frothing at the mouth and think before trotting out poor souls who will say anything for adulation.

The latest lunatic liberals and the media try to give credibility to is running on 14:30 of her 15 minutes. The "peace mom" sure doesn't sound like a peaceful person at all. Judging from her soundbites, you would think she's a regular dinner guest of Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro. Or maybe, the PR spokesperson for Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden. Among Ms. Sheehan's peace talk:

"George Bush murdered my son." - Not the terrorist that shot him, the President himself killed him somehow.

Oh wait, her son..."wasn't killed by terrorists. He was killed by Shiite militia." Funny, she gives credibility to the people who killed her own son as a legit army.

"George Bush is the world's biggest terrorist." - Not Osama bin Laden, who was "allegedly" behind the 9/11 attacks, in her words.

"The US Government is a morally repugnant system." - No word on the Ba'athist system of government.

"America is not worth dying for." - It's a shame that many people have died for this woman's right to speak out against them.

Anyway, you get the gist. The woman is entitled to her opinion, but it is the blatant lies that are taken as fact from the mainstream media is what really makes me sick:

"The military recruiter misled Casey to enlist." I guess he was still misled when he re-enlisted.

"I say my son died for LIES. George Bush LIED to us and he knew he was LYING. The Downing Street Memos dated 23 July, 2002 prove that he knew that Saddam didn't have WMD's or any ties to Al Qaeda. I believe that George lied and he knew he was lying." - This one is a doozy. Her son re-enlisted in 2004, well after it was reported that there were no WMDs and this memo surfaced. Her son did not re-enlist in the military because of WMD lies.

But it is this one that should have alerted the left wing not to take this person seriously:

Cindy, 2004: "
I now know he's sincere about wanting freedom for the Iraqis, I know he's sorry and feels some pain for our loss. And I know he's a man of faith."

"That was the gift the president gave us, the gift of happiness, of being together."

Cindy, 2005: "He wouldn't look at the pictures of Casey. He didn't even know Casey's name. He came in the room and the very first thing he said is, "So who are we honoring here?" He didn't even know Casey's name. He didn't want to hear it. He didn't want to hear anything about Casey. He wouldn't even call him 'him' or 'he.' He called him 'your loved one.'"

Ok, so now we know who the real liar is and I'm going to end this post. I want to pity this person, but find it so hard to. I really wonder what will happen to her when the final minute of her 15 minutes of fame runs out and her left-wing friends abandon her like so many of her family members have. What will become of her then? She'll have to live the rest of her lonely days knowing that she spit on her own son's grave for a small period of fame. Talk about selling your soul.

Why I Hate My Brother!

On a hot July Sunday in 1999, my phone rang. It was my brother calling to see if I was coming with him to go to the Yankee game. I was working and living in Rhode Island at the time and he was driving down from Newport, where we had summer rentals. I wanted to go so bad, but I knew I had work the next day and probably should be responsible for once in my life. It was a huge dilemma at the time because my family had tickets in the luxury box and it was going to be a great time. I told him to go ahead without me.

That day, I went to just about every bar in Newport looking for one that had the Yankee game on TV. Of course, not a single place had it. You see, Rhode Island is RETARDED. I will explain why another time. Anyway, I finally gave up and hit a bar with my friend and they had ESPN on. The sound was off, but the sportscaster was talking and there was a picture of David Cone posted. I started thinking, "Oh no, I hope he isn't hurt or something." Little did I know that I would feel much worse 5 seconds later. The next scene shown was the final out of David Cone's perfect game, the entire team is mobbing him and the Stadium is delirious.

My friend, Rover, was at the bar with me. He was studying to become a doctor. He explained to me later on that I went into a mild state of shock because my face went about 3 shades paler than it normally is and I had to hold onto the bar to keep from passing out. About that time, my brother is leaving me a voicemail on my phone screaming, "You won't believe this!!!...."

I got over it. I mean, I've enjoyed plenty of great moments at Yankee Stadium. I was in the locker room after they won the World Series later that year. But, still I should've been at that game.

Now, last week my brother had tickets behind home plate and he asked me to go for a mid-week afternoon game. I would have loved to have gone, but I had a lot of work to do and had a softball game that night so I decided that I couldn't do everything. You know, trying to be responsible and all.

The next day, I receive an email from my brother at the game and he is with The King, Jimmy Leyritz!!! One of the most clutch hitters ever. The one who started the last Yankee dynasty with his 3-run homerun against the Atlanta Braves to tie up Game 3 and avoid going 0-3 for the Series. The legend who hit the game-winning homerun in the bottom of the 15th in the playoffs against Seattle the year before (I was at that game). This is The King! When he was a player here, he heard about 2 brothers in the Bronx that recently became orphans and adopted them into his family. He was a true New Yorker even though he wasn't from here. I mean, the guy would take the 4 train to the Stadium! I love this guy!

So, here is why I hate my brother! hahaha. He is on the right. His boy Fitz is on the left taking my place at the game. The King himself, in the middle.

I Can't Say It Any Better Than This....

This was on the Long Island Expressway.

The NY Times Lowers the Bar, Again

Just when you think the left-wing media cannot get any more despicable, a new low is reached. The Drudge Report has a developing story about NY Times investigative reporter Glen Justice who is hot on the case of investigating the adoption records of John Roberts' children!!!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! The kids are 4 and 5 years old!!!

This is worse than the unhinged liberal blog commenters calling the 4-year-old Jack gay because he was dancing during the announcement of Roberts' nomination.

I can't wait to see the backlash that comes of this. It is precisely this behavior that causes the Dems to lose more ground with each election.

However, if I were John Roberts, I would not be waiting for public opinion to rally behind me, I would march right into the NY Times office, grab Glen Justice by the neck and beat him senseless. In fact, even though I am not John Roberts, I'd still like to get a hold of this jerk.

Quibbling Over Homophones?

Now they are banning drinking games because of talking chickens!! ;-)

New Jersey Borough Bans Outdoor Drinking Games

POSTED: 8:43 am EDT August 3, 2005

BELMAR, N.J. -- Belmar has banned outdoor games involving alcohol.

The so-called "beer pong" ordinance aims to curb rowdy behavior by renters, who swarm the Monmouth County resort every summer.

Officials say the games expose families to fowl language, disorderly conduct and dangerous alcohol consumption.

The ordinance prohibits any alcohol-related games or contests on lawns, decks and porches.

I hope they don't get upset with the duck who asked the waiter to put it on his bill!

Quibbling Over Semantics?

You say "Insurgent" and I say "Terrorist".

Definition of Insurgent:
noun - A rebel or revolutionary

Definition of Terrorist:
noun - A person who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims.

Given the use of the word Insurgent, one would draw the conclusion that the attacks on our soldiers and innocent civilians in Iraq would be the responsibility of an Iraqi REBEL group that wants an end to our occupation there and the beginning of their own sovereignty.

However, since the overwhelming majority of murderous attacks perpetrated in Iraq are done by foreigners, I would think that the Insurgent or Rebel label is wrong.

The appropriate way to describe those who carry out murderous attacks used to intimidate Iraqi citizens and lessen support for the War here in America, would be Terrorist.

Unfortunately, all major news networks (including Fox News!) continue to label the thugs who kill our brave men and women and innocent civilians with hidden bombs and sniper attacks in Iraq as Insurgents!!

Did anyone ever look up the word in the dictionary before giving these animals such a favorable description? Or, did we not want to offend filthy murderers by calling them Terrorists?
