Is NBC encouraging all of us to openly use known stolen goods. If they can, can we all? I think they need to examine their senee of morality and ethics again. If I used goods I knew were stolent, I would be arrested. They proclaim themselves abovce the las by what they did. ANdrea Mitchell's words confirmed it.

Amazing as it seems, one is probably right in detecting a sense of democracy bashing in the American press coming out of their Iraqi War coverage. I sometimes cannot believe my ears as I listen. Faith in democracy has been such bedrock in
Is the press just preparing us to face the loss of our own democracy? Do they see a “friendly fascism” of the left or right? That is a silly question in that the press favors only the left. If they lead us away from trying to bring democracy to the world, they take us away from a multi-decade, multi-party promise that democracy can save the world from the horrors of the past. Is their hatred of American and Western Civilization so pronounced that they have decided democracy must be in error, too? Is it that they have just realized their role in hurting democracy here and they are attempting to save themselves from their sins by blaming the democracy that allows them to speak?
The future is becoming more scary every day.
I noticed the next night that FOX pointed out at 5 that no bombing took place because there are U.S. rules against bombing funerals. Note the morality of US policy. Intersting to find that NBC and CBS did not mention the real news about the incident. Their 5:30 [CST] news covered moral indignation over administration behavior involving the Geneva Convention without noting that the previous night's story had a moral cause.

Some very illuminating items in the news today. The Pope spoke to a group of academics and quoted a Byzantine source concerning the evil and violent nature of Islam. He was not stating his view, but was referencing a source.
What is interesting is that the Islamic world is up in arms over the use of the quotation. Of course, illustrating the non-violent nature of Islam, they have burned four churches in
The New York Times, keeping with their Jihadist principles, has called on the Pope to apologize. I guess if this is the way the New York Times wants it, we can give it to them. If they quote Hitler they must be Nazi. If they quote Marx they are communists. If they cover the Klan and put in a quotation, they must be Klan type. Oh my God, they have quoted Bush. The

CBS also seemed to take on NBC's move to the life. The first few stories had those "wonderful Talban" that left adores showing up those Americans. What great news for the left. If we attacked them then we could only be critisized for over doing it.
In all, a sad start.

Tricky times with the New York Times article letting the world know about our secret operations. That the Times thinks the nation and world need to know this can only enhance our belief that the Times is anti-American and supports the goals of Muslim Jihadists. Of course, the issues will be clouded by other media over the question of whether the Times or the supplier of the information is the larger criminal; but the end answer should be both are criminals.
This is the result of the failure of the New York Times to understand its role in public policy. By not understanding the simple lesson that freedoms comes with responsibility, the New York Times undermines the very principle it so lovingly seeks to use. The end result of the Times' actions will be an end to the very freedom they think they are supporting.

Is NBC politically pushing for the
Their hidden agenda is obvious. While saving Islamic people was “wrong” when Bush did it in
NBC should play it with some sense of honesty, as Clooney should. These are Islamic people and they hate us. They are hurting, but that was the goal in

The gang at the lake was outraged over the weekend by the scale of the move by the liberals to get the
The lesson of
Imagine telling our troops, you are going to face death to keep one Islamic group from killing another Islamic group. Both groups, of which would like to see all Americans dead and rotting in hell.
Solving disputes within the Islamic World is no longer our business. When

Here is a neat political quiz I found on Sheri’s “In My Opinion” blog.
Identifying one's place in the spectrum is a problem for so many. In these days of political polarization, it is important to know one's place. The gang at the lake is probably best received by those placng themselves in the right area of the top Libertarian space.

The larger mystery is why the Republicans are not exploiting this issue. While many of them were with the Democrats, the White House and some Republicans were not. Now the Democrats and the Media, from whom no straight answer can be expected, are continuing to pound the post New Orlenas mantra that only bigger government can save us. The only thing that can save us is what some of the Louisiana folk outside New Orleans can proudly tell us: Be prepared to do it yourself. If you relie on government, you will sink no matter which party is in charge.
Of course, the Democrat Party is the party of those who believe that no one can do it themselves. There is no flow of money through them if people actually do it themselves.

If they can spit at us over and over, why should our hand be so easily offered? Maybe it is time for our aid to stay home unless the hand of friendship has been offered.

Since we all need the litions to be outside for any length, we all are going to pay for that "lawyers" vacations., car, house, and cottage for the rest of our lives. If he really cared, the friendly way would have worked so much easier and at no cost to us.

It was sad to see Lisa go, but it was predictable. Lisa can sing but she just never had that crowd grabbing something or it. She certainly was a pro about losing out. She needs some showbiz training and she will be back and on fire. She might just have been too young and vulnerable.
Three larger show items took place last night:
1. Seacrist did not reveal how many phone votes they took in. He has been sure to make a big point of that the previous several weeks. They obviously were down. The fault lies in the lackluster performances of Tuesday, and the fault for that lies not with the contestants, but with FOX or 19. The choice of 21st Century music was one for the outhouse. What song of the last six years has a giant nationwide audience? I cannot name one even close. We have had elevator music. I am sure that decline, unless Ryan just left it out, weighs large on the AI crew. Give them something to sing, and they shall provide. We have had two weeks of this now [with Manilow inbetween]. Stevie is great, but who else can sing that stuff? The 2000s have been lean on good songs.
2. They heard us and let Lisa finish her song. Not one second more, but she got to the last note. They were rude to the earlier losers. They had fans and should have gotten to finsih. Lisa did.
3. Given the horrible theme choice, they missed Kevin more than they probably thought. Part of the engtertainment value was gone. Sad.

The gang has been focused upon Carrie Underwood's version of "Hello Young Lovers" from last season. They have it playing over and over after finally locating a copy on the web. How wonderful it is. Broadway is big with the tire in the lake crowd.

The world of Islam has shown little restraint in talking about power and death. Its ancient view of the world is one of doom and death. Where is the sound of reason in that area? When westerners propose activities that are far out, there is a reaction to make that nature known. America is not seeing that from the Middle East. The gang knows those people are there, but the American media fails to show them. This produces a sense of fear and loathing. The radical Islamic view is the only view normally heard because it is the news that the media loves. It is exciting. Peace is not a good story. Moderation is not a good story.
The media needs to seek out the moderates and make them the show case of what the Middle East is. How would most Americans even know there was a moderate alive in the Middle East at this time?
Paris is the favorite among the gang. This young 16-year-old has the genes of a singing family and the pipes to win. She took a Gladys Knight and the Pips song [I Heard it Through the Grapevine] and out performed Gladys. She can look so professional, and yet look 12 in the next camera shot. She is expected to win or take second.
Kevin is a favorite at the lake, but not to win. He is pure enterntainment. He knows he will not be the ideol, but he is a 17 year-old just pumping every moment for attention from the ladies. The gang recalls being 17 and wanting any attention whatsoever. We were all thrilled by anything. Here is Kevin living our dream from long ago. More power to him. He could easily have a singing career ahead. In one song images of the Three Tenors came to mind for a few select notes. If he can hit just a couple of notes and sound like that, he can hit more. He needs training and school
Chirs is the favorite by the odds, and considered the front runner by the gang. He can really pelt out a song.
Taylor's gray hair carried him into third by the gang;s list. Our people! He has the Joe Crocker look and act. Joe is a fave at the lake.
The gang also support Lisa and Katherine. They have futures, too.

What does that mean for the world? The main impact has been to reduce America down to a nuclear power. If this country lacks the will to use troops again, then the only military answer left is the nuclear weapon. The use of the military in connection with Iran has been mentioned, but it will not be us. It will be a missile.
The attack of the "left" on America will leave nuclear weapons as the only answer. The problem will only worsen if Hillary Clinton, or any democrat become sPresident. The military can never depend upon her supporters to fill it. The military is largely filled with conservative, patriot Americans. When she finds a place that needs the military, there will be no one there for her to use. I doubt she can face reestablishing the draft, thus the nuclear answer looms. The use of the Air Force can forestall it, but eventually only the nuclear weapon can win.
