Hurricane Ernesto

Here is what I think of the MSM coverage of Hurricane Ernesto:

Why don't they cover the other Ernesto? You know the one. The Ernesto that is doing far more damage to the US. The Ernesto that entered the country illegally, bringing his trash, human waste, crime, and drugs with him. The very same Illegal alien that has bankrupted our hospitals, destroyed our schools and is sucking the public teat dry. Why not talk about him?

Ancient History Part 1

A generation which ignores history has no past and no future.
Robert Heinlein, The Notebooks of Lazurus Long

I just finished reading Livy The History of Early Rome by Titus Livius. Livy as he was known spent over forty years writing 142"books" about the early history of Rome. This particular translation covers the period from 753 B.C. up to 390 B.C.

Why I find this so interesting is that there are several speeches made in front of the Senate that could be made in front of our own Senate today.

About 400 B.C Appius Claudius delivered a speech that I will edit passages for brevity. At the time a war weary Rome suffered much back biting and internal dissention in the Government. After considerable expense the Romans had laid siege to the city of Veii, home of their neighbor and perpetual sparing partner.

Appius Claudius:

"Men of Rome, if there has ever been any doubt whether it is for your sakes or for their own that the tribunes have alway encouraged sedition, that doubt is surely now at an end."

"Tell me, which side are you Tribunes on? Are you defending or attacking the commons? Are you for or against our soldiers in the field? Personally I suspect your real position is mere contrariness- you object to anything and everything the Senate does, regardless of its political implications."

Sound Familiar?

If you loved your country-nay, if you had a spark of humanity in you-you ought rather to have welcomed and, so far as you could, to have fostered a proper relationship between patricians and populace-kindliness on the one hand, obedience on the other. Could harmony between them but last forever, who would hesitate to affirm that we should quickly become the dominant power amongst our neighbors.

"As to the decision of my colleagues not to withdraw the troops from Veii until their object is accomplished, I will explain presently why it not merely a sound, but also a necessary decision.

After discussing the matter of troop receiving pay (something new to Gome) and the Tribunes attempt to revoke it, Claudius continues:

"Men of Rome either this war ought to never to have been undertaken, or it ought to be conducted worthily and ended as quickly as possible- and ended it will be if we press the siege and withdraw only when the capture of Veii shall have crowed our hopes. God help us, my friends, shames itself should keep us in the field."

Claudius continues with a brief summary of all the past troubles and battles with Veii and the seven times they attacked Rome. He finishes with this:

"If, then, we raise the siege, can you doubt for an instant that they will invade us? Not only in desire for revenge but from the sheer necessity of recouping their own losses by plundering somebody else? Raise the siege, and we shall not be postponing the war till next summer: no indeed-we shall be fighting it on our own country."

One cannot help but feel we have learned little in 2400 years. The Global War on Terror will only be won with tenacity, unity, and resolve. The Romans did actually continue the siege and capture the city after ten years. The continued political unrest and dissention took its toll and shortly thereafter the city of Rome was captured and sacked after 365 years of domination. To the Gauls no less, one of historys first examples of what illegal immigration can do.

Imagine the possibilities if our elected leaders put country ahead of party and survival ahead of politics.

Stunningly Naive

Oliver North | August 24, 2006

Athens, Greece --

"While changing planes here in this ancient capital, I arranged to meet with an old friend who has long experience in the Middle East. Fluent in many Mediterranean and Persian Gulf languages and intimately familiar with the long, sad history of enmity in the region, he worked quietly with Americans for decades. I first met him in the 1980s during sensitive -- but ultimately fruitless -- efforts to elicit help from Arab governments in obtaining the release of American hostages being held in Lebanon. Throughout his personal triumphs and failures, successes and frustrations, I've always found him optimistic, his affection and admiration for the U.S. undimmed. But not this time; now he is nearly despondent about the current course of events and prospects for the future."

The Education of Juan Williams

I am a big Dennis Prager fan and yesterday he had Juan Williams on his show. Willams is a NPR and Fox News contributor that has alway been a typical liberal apologist and left leaning democratic party guy. I think that his new book Enough may have opened his eyes and sent him on his way to a serious break with traditional black leaders. You know the poverty pimps, race baiters, and reparation hacks that have kept black America in a state of perpetual victimhood.

Enough is a book that I will buy to help Mr. Williams on his journey into mainstream America. It is a courageous effort. Like Steele and Mc. Whorter before him, he exposes Jackson, Sharpton and the rest of the so-called Black leaders for the destructive shysters that they are.

Williams made many revelations on Prager's show that suprised Dennis and Williams himself. His admission that conservatives had embraced his work seriously and many blacks and liberals are treating him like a pariah is not suprising to those of us who know what real hypocrites most from the left are.

We're Doomed

Mrs. Dinosaur and I were returning from New Mexico yesterday when we stopped in Wilcox, Az. for a bite to eat. At the TA truckstop they have a Subway sandwich shop.

Teenage dullard:
I can't get the register to work again.

Teenage Manager semi-dullard:
What did you do to it now?

(Five Minutes Later)

Teenage dullard:
Ok, that will be $10.01

I then proceed to hand the dullard $11.00. She pulls out a calculator and subtracts $10.01 from $11.00 and comes up with 99 cents....................

One of My Turns

One of My Turns

"Oh my God! What a fabulous room! Are all these your guitars?
"This place is bigger than our apartment!
"erm, Can I get a drink of water?
"You want some, huh?"
"Oh wow, look at this tub? Do you wanna take baaaath?"
"What are watching?"
"Are you feeling okay?..."

Day after day, love turns grey
Like the skin of a dying man.
Night after night, we pretend its all right
But I have grown older and
You have grown colder and
Nothing is very much fun any more.
And I can feel one of my turns coming on.
I feel cold as a razor blade,
Tight as a tourniquet,
Dry as a funeral drum.

Run to the bedroom,
In the suitcase on the left
You'll find my favorite axe.
Don't look so frightened
This is just a passing phase,
One of my bad days.
Would you like to watch T.V.?
Or get between the sheets?
Or contemplate the silent freeway?
Would you like something to eat?
Would you like to learn to fly?
Would you like to see me try?

Would you like to call the cops?
Do you think it's time I stopped?
Why are you running away?

Turned 44 today....................Damn........Just Damn

President George Bush said this week, ”America is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom, to hurt our nation.“

The Council on American-Islamic Relations issued an immediate objection to the President’s reference to “Islamic fascists”. Nihad Awad, executive director of CAIR protested, “We have to isolate these individuals because there is nothing in the Koran or the Islamic faith that encourages people to be cruel or to be vicious or to be criminal. Muslims worldwide know that for sure.”

In light of this objection, we are left to ponder why every Islamic leader in the U.S., and the world, does not publicly condemn every terror action being undertaken in the name of the god of Islam. Their silence is deafening… Between 1970 and present, there were more than 60 other notable examples of terrorism perpetrated by Middle Eastern male Islamists between the ages 17 and 40, but you get the point.

I have seen this before, only the list of questions was not quite so long. Wake Up America!

Lack of Resolve

In a speech today our President refered to the Islamic Murdering Bastards as an "Extremist group of folks". This obviously in an attempt to pander to the house of Saud and the rest of the Muslims who are indignant at his use of the term Islamofacist. It appears that he has blinked. This combined with Israel snatching defeat from the jaws of victory could very well doom all of our efforts in the Middle East. The only thing members of the "Religion of Death" understand is the cold calculated use of superior force, and we have chosen to no longer exercise that option. Clintonian diplomacy is back in business............

Winners and Losers The after action report that is a must read.

Whizbang reports that the IDF may resume hostilities if the UN Asshat Annan does not fullfill the latest resolution that demands HizBooyah disarm. It is also possible that the IDF needs to regroup and re-arm after its much beleaguered army has faced so many budget cuts and reductions lately. Sound familiar?
