Big Headed Scottish Highlander practicing Tu Quoque.

“How do you like my new hat, Mr. Scotland? By Jove, what ridiculously gigantic headgear you women like to wear.” 

If the Scots are so damn smart and invented the world and all that hooey, how come they cannot speak and reason logicially? Criticize something such as their freeing of a convicted mass murderer and their response is “yo mama’s worse.” There is a name for their logic and it is “Tu Quoque.” It’s the “two wrongs make a right fallacy.” “Yes, Scotland let a killer go, but the U.S. invaded Iraq, so we’re both right.” It is Scottish logic and if you do not accept it, you are persecuted as another stupid ____ing American. Makes one want to visit Ireland on one’s next vacation. Scots hate the Irish even more than they hate Americans. They do love their Colonel Gaddafi and his Libyan oil fields, though.  Tu Quoque.

Great Scots No More

When Is Waterboarding Okay?

June 15, 2009

When is Water-Boarding Good? When used against Pro-life Christians, but only if they are drowned at the same time.


That’s right folks. Although America’s Progressive Liberals have proclaimed water-boarding to be “Torture” when used against America’s terrorist enemies, the Pro-Choice movement has advocated the use of water-boarding against Pro-Life Christians, as long as the water-boarding results in drowning. That is because Liberal America considers Pro-life Christians to be the real enemies of their Liberal America nation. That is why children “of color” are being taught by Planned Parenthood to murder other Americans. Remember, water-boarding is supposedly “Torture,” but forcible drowning, as demonstrated to the children in this video, is still “MURDER” in America.

Watch as Planned Parenthood water-boards and drowns (they call it “Aqua-sliding”) a Christian because he teaches abstinence and “dresses funny.” You will see peaceable demonstrators at an abortion clinic shot and killed en-mass by Planned Parenthood. Watch as they water-board a U.S. Senator until he agrees to support Planned Parenthood. If you watch until the end, when the credits roll, you will see Planned Parenthood shoot a U.S. Army helicopter out of the sky. It is proof beyond belief that the violence of abortion practiced at abortion clinics, against vulnerable women and the innocent unborn, promotes more violence against all Americans.

This video is from Planned Parenthood of San Francisco, and was funded by American taxpayers who provide them at least $250,000 every year. Planned Parenthood’s Superhero for Choice kills pro-life Christians and abstinence educators in her never-ending quest to make America safe for abortion. The cartoon video’s message to youngsters “of color” is that white people are evil Christians and Planned Parenthood is their protector. Abort your babies “of color” now! If you wait, it will be too late, for they will be born into this wicked nation that water-boards its enemies.

America’s Superhero for Choice


Obama and the Pirates

April 9, 2009

Obama and the Pirates Pirates have commandeered an American-flagged (NOT Liberian) container ship off the coast of Somalia. This story is true (you are NOT reading “The Onion”) as it has been reported by Al Jazeera News. The 21st century swash-bucklers have kidnapped the ship’s captain, an American, and are holding him hostage, just in case the U.S. Navy contemplates any of those Cowboy tactics left over from the George W. Bush reign.

President Barack Obama has once again referred to this latest national disaster as one that he inherited. However, Obama did not blame the pirates’ uprising on his usual scapegoat, George W. Bush. Obama explained to fawning American news outlets that these Swashbucklers of the High Seas were inherited directly from former President Thomas Jefferson, who obviously failed to quell the piracy problem during his own War on Terror: “Jefferson’s War.”

For more than 200 years, that dead white President, Thomas Jefferson, has been given credit for successfully swashbuckling the Barbary Pirates, giving birth to the United States Navy for that mission, and creating a pep song for the US Marines about “the Shores of Tripoli,” President Obama revealed. He continued: “those dead white historians got it all wrong! The swashbuckling evil buccaneers continue to cruise high on the high seas, and Thomas Jefferson’s failure has been dropped at my doorstep on Pennsylvania Avenue more than 200 years later.” The adoring White House Press Corps swooned.

The United States Marines performed with honor at the first war proclaimed by our new nation. In 1801, when Thomas Jefferson became president, he refused to accede to the Barbary pirates of Tripoli’s demands for an immediate payment of $225,000 and an annual payment of $25,000. This refusal brought about the first ‘war’ the U.S. would fight as a country. The first line of the Marine hymn, ‘from the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli’, references the 600-mile march across the Libyan Desert of a group of Navy men and others to capture the port city of Derna, Tripoli. It took a concerted effort by England, France, Spain, and the United States to end over 400 years of Muslim piracy on the Barbary Coast.” (“Happy Birthday Marines” by Edna Barney)

Obama continued his explanation. “Thomas Jefferson had his chance to contain piracy when this nation was young, and he failed miserably, as seen by these man-made disasters now terrorizing shipping lanes on the high seas. Jefferson even instigated a war with those North African Islamic potentates whose modern lands are known today as Algeria, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia, which is more proof for America and the world, that gains won by force do not endure. It was up to America’s Founding Fathers to secure free navigation of the seas for the new United States of America, and their posterity, which is ME, and they punted” complained Obama. “This is one more ‘inherited’ problem that the country is now depending on me to solve, which I will as soon as I can escape the glow of the glory of my European tour.”

I’ve had my historians researching ancient history to find the root problem of today’s Somalian piracy. They discovered that these “man-made disasters” we are experiencing today all stem directly from a meeting in London in March of 1785, between American founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams and Ambassador Abd Al-Rahman of Tripoli. The Founding Fathers inquired of the ‘Mussulman’ Ambassador for the reason that the Barbary states were impeding American ships, pirating their cargo and enslaving their crews and passengers. Ambassador Abd Al-Rahman gave the answer to America’s illustrious Founders, but they were absolutely tone-deaf to the ‘Mussulman’s’ words:”

“It was written in the Koran, that all Nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon whoever they could find and to make Slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.” ~Ambassador Abd Al-Rahman of Tripoli to John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, London, 1785.

Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, has expressed concern and called upon the world to “come together to end the scourge of piracy.” (Good Luck on that one, Hillary.) President Barack Obama reassured Americans that with his new leadership skills the country will be able to resolve this historic first time boarding by pirates of an American ship. He has already promised that, unlike his predecessor Thomas Jefferson, America under Barack Obama will never wage war on any Muslim nation. We are a nation of laws, and if our lawyers find that these man-made pirates have broken any international laws, we will prosecute them to the fullest extent in whatever world court they find agreeable to their cultural mores. In addition, Barack Obama has dispatched a special communique to the Somalian Pirate King reminding him that America’s president is now a “brother.” All those dead white American presidents and founding fathers, are just that – dead white men!

Yes – It’s Satire, but it’s still true!


U.S. Takeover by Cyberspies

April 8, 2009

“If we go to war with them, they will try to turn them on,” — Government official to Wall Street  Journal

New evidence has just been uncovered that cyberspies, likely from China and Russia, have penetrated the U.S. power grid and left behind spyware software that can be activated to disrupt America’s water, sewer and electricity infrastructure, FOX News confirmed today.

The “intrusions,” first reported by The Wall Street Journal, did not occur yesterday, but happened over the period of time when George W. Bush was in charge, a high-ranking U.S. official said. The breaches are “something that the Bush Administration failed to catch,” the official reminded FOX News. Barack Obama himself was asked by the American media if Americans should be concerned that the spyware that Mr. Obama inherited from George W. Bush could be activated during Obama’s reign to disrupt critical systems and make his administration appear inept.

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said in a written statement that President Obama takes the issue of cyber security ‘very seriously,’ but that the administration is not aware of any such ‘disruptions’ to the power grid. Cyber attacks are made all the time, however, industry continuously looks for and mitigates against such attacks and we are not aware of any disruptions to the power grid caused by deliberate cyber activity here in the United States.

While the motivation for the breaches is not well understood, the electronic trail appears to lead to China and Russia. However, both of those nations deny involvement in state-sponsored cyperspying. Officials at both Washington embassies of China and Russia emphatically deny that any of their spies in the United States are certified as cyperspies.

The good news, according to The Wall Street Journal, is that the cyperspying espionage appeared pervasive across the country and did not target any particular ethnic group nor sexual persuasion. Indeed, government officials explained to the Journal, the cyberspying intrusions were detected by those same U.S. intelligence agencies, CIA, DIA, NSA, etcetera, that had been asleep at the wheel during the Bush administration, when “man-made disaster” pilots were flying American-made airplanes into American-made buildings.

“‘If we go to war with them, they will try to turn them on,’ one official told the Journal.” That is why the Obama Administration has already sent a message to both China and Russia, promising that the Obama Nation will NEVER wage war against either of their nations. China, Russia, the rest of the world, and the American people need to be reassured that President Barack Obama will never be a President George W. Bush.

Satire is probably closer to the truth than any real news you can read in America.


Millions, Billions and Trillions

March 21, 2009

Stack up briefcases filled with $100 bills to equal Obama’s assorted bank bailouts, stimulus packages and proposed $3.6 trillion budget, and the briefcases would reach so high into the atmosphere that they would constitute a hazard to satellites.

Less than three years ago American Liberals were in high dungeon because President George Bush had spent “BILLIONS” with a “B” dollars fighting a war against terror. One website even went so far as to graphically illustrate just how many miles high President Bush’s $315 Billion dollars stacked up. A billion here, a billion there… Pretty soon it starts to add up to some real money. Those billions of dollars went to pay soldiers’ salaries, to pay American workers for building war munitions, airplanes and tanks, to pay American farmers for food, etcetera.

Fast forward less than three years and we are into the TRILLIONS of Dollars stratosphere as our government is throwing money anywhere it can in the name of Financial Bailout and Stimulus. Our brand new President, Obama has proposed budget deficits of $1.75 trillion for 2009, and an additional $1.17 trillion for 2010. All the government has to do is collect a cool $3 trillion from American taxpayers to clear that off the books. So what’s a few Billion here and a few Billion there in the whole scheme of things? After all, American taxpayers always come through.

Today, no one seems concerned about how much a Trillion Dollars really is. Routinely, our government leaders mistakenly interchange the words million, billion and trillion when referring to taxpayer money that they plan to spend or have spent. That is because no one can really understand how much money is a $Billion, much less a $Trillion! As an example, just last week the U. S. Congress went totally bananas over AIG executives getting a mere $165 MILLION in bonuses. How much out of $3 Trillion is $165 Million? It’s really a pittance comparatively, but apparently that math is too much for the average American.

Last week, amid the AIG bonus distraction so that no one would notice, the Federal government announced that it is printing $1 Trillion in new money to flood our troubled economy. $1 Trillion! And barely a wimper from “We the People.” Clifford Barney of Red Door Software wrote the following entitled “Money in the Sky – the Story of Jack and the Greenstalk.”

Inspired by the visuals of enormous amounts of money at $87 Billion, I calculated the following: A 1-inch thick stack of 100 dollar bills (the highest denomination in circulation) is worth about $25,000. To mentally grasp the staggering value of the $1 trillion that the Fed recently announced plans to inject into the economy, the stack of 100 dollar bills would need to be – get this – 40 million inches high. Let’s see, divide by 12, divide again by 5280 and um…that’s a stack of 100 dollar bills more than 630 miles high. Yes, SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY MILES HIGH. Hundred dollar bills.

If you stacked them up like bricks, the mound of money would be a giant cube 70 feet long on each side. To transport it, you would need a fleet of semi-trucks more than a mile long. And these are HUNDRED DOLLAR BILLS!

This picture ($87 Billion) represents the sheer scale of $1 trillion in 100 dollar bills. Note the little speck in the bottom right corner – that’s a man and his car.

I reckon I could grab a six-inch stack of bills with each hand, if it was in front of me. That’s $300,000 – enough to buy a nice house in most of America.

Now imagine if we used the Fed’s $1 trillion printing press injection to build $300,000 houses on modest half-acre parcels. It would take up a swath of land the size of Delaware. Or you could choose to build nearly 1200 brand-spanking new Trump Towers like the one recently completed in Chicago – each 92 stories tall (quarter mile high), accommodating 10,000 people each.

Bottom line – dat’s a lotta money. You think your $5,000 visa bill is scary? How about our kids’ and grandkids’ multi-trillion dollar credit card bill?

Just a thought – do members of Congress have to show any aptitude for math at all? Or do they pretty much think that million, billion and trillion are just different flavors of money?

How Much Is a Trillion Dollars? Clifford Barney explains:

Remember those old Miami Vice episodes from the 80’s when drug dealers would open up their briefcases, and it would be stuffed with hundred dollar bills? I always used to imagine what I could do with a whole briefcase full of money. The average worker’s lifelong earnings would not fill up one of those briefcases.

Out of curiosity, I whipped out my calculator to see how much an entire briefcase full of 100 dollar bills would be worth. Turns out it’s $840,000. See my math. Imagine what you could do with a single briefcase full of 100 dollar bills. You could buy yourself a really nice house. Travel the world first class for a couple of years. Properly managed, you could probably retire for life and live modestly.

Now imagine a stack of briefcases 56 miles high, all filled with 100 dollar bills. That’s the size of the $1 trillion that the Federal Reserve just authorized to be ‘released into the economy,’ e.g. printed/created/contrived. I’m not even going to touch on the assorted bank bailouts, stimulus packages and Obama’s obscene $3.6 trillion proposed FY2010 budget, because that would push the stack of money-filled briefcases so high into the atmosphere, they’d be a hazard to satellites.

The government is spending money it doesn’t have, and at this point, will NEVER have. It’s easy to imagine that this very year future historians are being born who, in 50 years or so, will be writing scathing historical criticisms of our generation’s government, attitudes, wastefulness and neglect. Yes, neglect. We are neglecting the future, as if it might not ever happen.

The Math, for those who care…
————————————————
Our present currency measures 2.61 inches wide by 6.14 inches long, and the thickness is 0.0043 inches. An ordinary briefcase is about 12.5 inches wide, 16.5 inches long and 3 inches thick. A 3-inch high stack of 100 dollar bills would consist of 700 bills worth $70,000. The briefcase could hold 12 such stacks, or $840,000. Dat’s a lotta money.


Remember the USS Cole?

February 6, 2009

No? Well, you are not alone. The bombing of the USS Cole was a part of “The Clinton Legacy.”

The Clinton Legacy included the killings of dozens of American children by their government at Waco, the 2002 World Trade Center Attack, the Oklahoma City Bombing, the Khobar Towers Bombing, the Embassy Bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, and Al Qaeda Attacks on the American warship USS Cole. 

  • February 26th 1993 – Terrorism first came to America with the first bombing of the World Trade Center. President Clinton treated it as a “criminal act” instead of an act of war.
  • 17 April 1995 – The Oklahoma City bombing seemed to have had a middle-eastern terrorist connection, which the government did not pursue. Instead, they arrested, prosecuted and promptly executed Timothy McVeigh.
  • The next year saw the Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia where 19 innocent Americans were murdered.
  • In 1998, U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by terrorists.
  • In October 2000, Al Qaeda struck America again, attacking an American warship, the USS Cole, while docked in Yemen. Fifteen American sailors were killed in a Yemen port and the ship seriously damaged. The Clinton government did not consider it an act of war and did nothing in response. Two months later, in December of 2000, the Central Intelligence Agency was within 24 hours of apprehending Bin Laden. Clinton pulled them off the trail when the American Ambassador to Yemen complained that the investigation was causing trouble for US/Yemen relations. The CIA was pulled out of Yemen, and Osama Bin Laden got away.
