La Raza's finest

"Are illegal immigrant prostitutes just doing johns that Americans won’t do?" Quote found at NewsBusted Political Comedy, 103.

How did we end up back in the 70's?

And for that matter, why the hell would we want to end up back there anyhow? Was it the inflation we miss? The unemployment? Maybe it was the energy crisis? That must be it, the energy crisis.

A handful of washed-out has-beens want to put the rest of us modern Americans right back in their glory days of gas lines and double knit reversible slacks. The story is here. I suppose that it is appropriate that this is being run by the Communist News Network.

These yahoos want to put the brakes on our country's progress in nuclear power and slow down our move away from the dependence on fossil fuels.

It rankles that they refer to the progress we are making towards our safe and responsible pursuit of nuclear power as a "Stealth" effort. Stealth? I suppose the President of the United States of America mentioning that we as a country should be pursuing nuclear power during his State of the Union Address doesn't count as sufficient public notice?

President Bush's exact words, in his 5th State of the Union Address, were:

"To keep our economy growing, we also need reliable supplies of affordable, environmentally responsible energy. Nearly four years ago, I submitted a comprehensive energy strategy that encourages conservation, alternative sources, a modernized electricity grid, and more production here at home -- including safe, clean nuclear energy. My Clear Skies legislation will cut power plant pollution and improve the health of our citizens. And my budget provides strong funding for leading-edge technology -- from hydrogen-fueled cars, to clean coal, to renewable sources such as ethanol. Four years of debate is enough: I urge Congress to pass legislation that makes America more secure and less dependent on foreign energy."

Pretty steatlhy, huh? The richest part of this farce, in my opinion, is that it is being spearheaded by Bonnie Raitt. I may be wrong, but I'm not entirely sure that an incomplete education from Radcliffe College in African studies qualifies you to talk about nuclear power.

I'm tired of musicians and actors thinking they know more about what is right for America, just because they are famous and rich. I think they routinely exercise their money and influence in a way that is disproportionate to their population in society and therefore spread tyranny and oppression through their campaigning for their pet causes. I want them to go back to entertaining, not preaching.

I think anyone, in this day and age, who doesn't think that nuclear power, as well as solar, wind, and geothermal energy need to all be part of our energy future is living under a rock. They need to get their free-love, patchouli oil huffing ass into the real world and get with the times. This ain't the 70's anymore, and I don't want to go back to the dark-age that it and the Carter Error, I mean, Era, represents.

I tried to make a response to the CNN article, but the comments are being moderated, and I suspect that since I would be submitting just another comment inline with the 50+ already there that my comment won't appear--it wouldn't be in keeping with their liberal minded "Fairness", after all. There were already more than 50 responses to the article calling it anything from mis-informed to irresponsible. I'm proud that my fellow Americans have educated themselves about the modern realities and science that are making nuclear power safe, and haven't hesitated to tell CNN and Bonnie "I wanna live in a VW Bus" Raitt how ridiculous their article is.

But I will let you judge for yourselves, here is a link to the NRC's webpage describing the advanced reactors that are to be built: http://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-licensing/design-cert.html

I'll leave you with a little story:

Bonnie Raitt decided to fly cross country, and as she is a washed-out has-been, found herself in coach. She was sitting next to a gentleman with a pocket protector and slide-rule and she asked him what he did for a living.

"I'm a control room operator at a nuclear power plant," the man replied.

Bonnie started into a tirade about the evils of nuclear power, when the man interrupted, "Have you ever noticed that rabbits, cows and horses all eat grass, yet a rabbit leaves little pellets, horses leave large horse apples, and cows leave patties? Why is that?"

This stopped Bonnie in her tracks. She thought and thought, but had to admit she could not come up with an answer.

"Well," said the man, "If you don't know shit, what makes you think you can talk intelligently about nuclear power?"

Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes...

I was reading Little Green Footballs today, and I saw a link to what turned out to be a great video documentary on some of the changes taking place in Iraq. It was made by a journalist named Michael J. Totten, and you can see it here. It takes about 20 minutes to watch, but I believe it was completely worth it.

Watch it and judge for yourself whether or not the surge is working, and whether or not General Petraeus and his soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen are making things better.

It is real evidence like this, contradicting the crap we see on the mainstream media, that has me convinced that we are only being told what we are intended to hear by a media machine fed by the dollars of slime like the scum at MoveOn.org and the "Democratic" party.

They have too much invested at this point to admit any real progress in Iraq. They have spent so much time telling us what an un-winnable quagmire we are in, how morally wrong we are, and how much oil we are exploiting, if we actually do succeed, they will lose what little credibility they do have. Already, you can hear some of them backpedaling.

Speaking of whom, don't you think it somewhat ironic that the "Democratic" party seems so interested in Socialism instead?

Let me know what you think of the video.

A scary thought

Bill Clinton in the White House with nothing to do and a lot of free time.

Okay, this is just too much...


Jimmy "I like Peanuts" Carter, definitely in the running for the worst president in the history of the United States of America, has referred to Vice President Cheney as "a disaster" and "militant".

I suppose that it takes a living, breathing disaster to know one. If one recalls correctly, his administration was responsible for the 444 day hostage crisis in Iran, not one, but two failed military rescue attempts (Operation Eagle Claw and Operation Credible Support), we were plagued by massive fuel shortages, increased the size of the government by creating the Dept. of Energy and Education, lost the Panama Canal, has filed a UFO sighting, a prime lending rate as high as 21%, increased payroll taxes, 12% inflation, and unemployment at 8% (remember the "Misery Index"? It was over 20 with Carter).

I would even put forth the opinion that the timidity shown by Carter while POTUS has actually led to the emboldened terrorists of today.

Compare this with the current Bush administration, whose running average on the Misery Index is 7.98 (with a current index of 6.57) compared to Carter's average of 16.27

So, which administration is a disaster? I would like to recommend that Mr. Carter heads back to his peanut farm or go back to Habitat For Humanity.

For that matter, why is he even relevant any more?

And your little dog too!


Finally, we have proof of what we have feared all along: Hillary is actually a witch! If you think about it, it really, really makes sense. After all, it explains why she displays a rigor mortis-like joker grin and the dry cackle that so cruelly imitates human laughter.

This can only mean one thing: she weighs as much as a duck, ergo, she is made of wood. And what do you do with wood?

Careful, she may turn you into a newt.

Tryphorgetin-medical breakthrough

This new wonder drug will be a tremendous benefit for Hillary's campaign. What other country could create such a marvelous, humanitarian, product? Actually, most non-democratic countries would love such a powerful potion.

Who woulda thunk it?

So, if I were to tell you that someone said the following about the United States of America:

US firms are at or near the forefront in technological advances, especially in computers and in medical, aerospace, and military equipment; their advantage has narrowed since the end of World War II. The onrush of technology largely explains the gradual development of a "two-tier labor market" in which those at the bottom lack the education and the professional/technical skills of those at the top and, more and more, fail to get comparable pay raises, health insurance coverage, and other benefits... Imported oil accounts for about two-thirds of US consumption. Long-term problems include inadequate investment in economic infrastructure, rapidly rising medical and pension costs of an aging population, sizable trade and budget deficits, and stagnation of family income in the lower economic groups... the US is the largest single emitter of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels; water pollution from runoff of pesticides and fertilizers; [has] limited natural fresh water resources in much of the western part of the country require careful management; [at risk of] desertification.

What would you think? Another brazen attack by the liberal controlled press? An anti-U.S. rant by our "friends" at the U.N.? You may be surprised to find out that it isn't any of those, but indeed its our own CIA describing the U.S. to the world in it's World Factbook.

If it weren't bad enough that that these other wackos are out to get us, but now our own intelligence agencies are bad mouthing us to others.

If you work too hard, there is never any time for her. If you don't work
enough, you're a good-for-nothing bum.

If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay, it's exploitation. If you
have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should get off your ass and
find something better.

If you get a promotion ahead of her, it's favoritism. If she gets a job
ahead of you, it's equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she looks, it's sexual harassment. If you keep
quiet, it's male indifference.

If you cry, you're a wimp. If you don't, you're insensitive.

If you make a decision without consulting her, you're a chauvinist pig, you
bastard. If she makes a decision without consulting you, she's a liberated
woman.

If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy, that's domination.

If she asks you, it's a favor.

If you try to keep yourself in shape, you're vain. If you don't, you're a
slob.

If you buy her flowers, you're after something. If you don't, you're not
thoughtful.

If you're proud of your achievements, you're an egotist. If you're not,
you're not ambitious.

If she has a headache, she's tired. If you have a headache, you don't love
her anymore, and you must be sleeping around.
