Just go read this. Here’s a snippet, but don’t miss any of it:
So, where does Gore buy his ‘carbon offsets’? According to The Tennessean newspaper’s report, Gore buys his carbon offsets through Generation Investment Management. a company he co-founded and serves as chairman:
Gore helped found Generation Investment Management, through which he and others pay for offsets. The firm invests the money in solar, wind and other projects that reduce energy consumption around the globe…
As co-founder and chairman of the firm Gore presumably draws an income or will make money as its investments prosper. In other words, he “buys” his “carbon offsets” from himself, through a transaction designed to boost his own investments and return a profit to himself.
This would be outrageous, if it wasn’t for the hysterically funny fact that you have thousands of swooning Goresciples having multiple Goregasms every time that two-bit shyster opens his big, fat pie hole.
Prokaryotes didn’t evolve at all, they just put on jeans and started referring to themselves as “progressives.”

Dean Esmay has finally decided that he’s had enough of reality and will hear nothing of it anymore:
Simply put, you must agree to all of the following assumptions:
- Islam does not represent the forces of Satan or the Anti-Christ bent on destruction of the Christian world.
- There is no 1,400 year old “war with the West/Christianity” being waged by Muslims or anyone else.
- Islam as a religion is no more inherently incompatible with modernity, minority rights, women’s rights, or democratic pluralism than most religions.
- Medieval, anachronistic, obscure terms like “dhimmitude” or “taqiyya” are suitable for polite intellectual discussion. They are not and never will be appropriate to slap in the face of everyday Muslims or their friends.
- Muslims have no more need to prove that they can be good Americans, loyal citizens, decent people, or enemies of terrorism than anyone else does.
“And don’t be giving me no bullshit about the world being round either, you Islamophobic HATERS!”
Furthermore, I will accept no more debate upon this matter by commenters bent upon snarky, snotty, Islamophobic irrationality. You should either stop using your comment account, or you should be prepared to simply be thrown out without further ado.
I’m done with this.
By the way, feel free to take us off your blogroll if you can’t handle this. Or to ask me to take you off of ours.
As you wish, Dean.
Enjoy your echo chamber.

We know that the New York Slimes is having multiple orgasms pretending that the failed, desperate attack on Bagram Air Base is somehow indicative of the situation in Afghanistan being out of control, but that only proves that they need to get out of their safe hotel compounds for a change. In order to learn some actual news, you know.
So some hadji goat herder blows himself up outside the gates of a U.S. military facility, causing absolutely no damage to the facility or the high-priority target inside, and we’re all supposed to tear our hair out lamenting the complete control of the Afghani countryside enjoyed by the Talibs?
I guess we should’ve surrendered and withdrawn from Oklahoma the day after that sick bastard McVeigh blew up the Murrah building, huh?
Face it, morons, we CANNOT prevent a random fuckcase from blowing himself up in the middle of a bazaar if he chooses to do so unless we intern the entire civilian population in concentration camps (and wouldn’t the imbeciles and ignoramuses of the New York Slimes love the Hell out of that?), but we CAN prevent the subhuman murderer of children from hurting our military assets in the region which, coincidentally, is exactly what our military is charged with doing and, also, is exactly what they DID in this case.
The VP was never in anything even resembling danger, nor have the operations of Bagram in any way been even inconvenienced by the knuckledragging Asshole for Allah whose major accomplishment before going straight, do not collect $200, to Hell was to murder a few more innocent Afghans, at least one of them a child.
In fact, the only reason why anybody would paint Abdul al-Fuckhead’s desperate failure of an attack as a success would be because they were actively propagandizing for the enemy, which is why you find such nonsense in the New York Slimes, of course. They ought to switch to Arabic. It would save them the costs incurred by having all of their articles translated into English.
Rope. Tree. Journalist.
Some assembly required.
I grow increasingly sick and tired of illiterate fuckheads of the MSM pretending to know what they talk about when they criticize our military, and I know that I’m not the only one.
Then again, if the graduates of J-school were only allowed to speak about matters they knew something about, no major newspaper would be more than two pages.
And all of it would be advertisements.

Or, at the very least, most obvious, courtesy of LC Readerjp. The whole piece of dreck is a primer in moral relativism, so if you feel up to it and have a barf bag ready, go read it. A few choice passages:
Allah is portrayed as providing the moral justification for the most horrific terror attack in history, one in which many fellow Muslims were also killed.
This document may seem macabre, but it reflects a breed of fanaticism that infuses numerous faiths, certainly not just Islam. The Jewish extremist Jigal Amir, who assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995, also claimed he was merely carrying out God’s will. And strict tutors at Jesuit colleges might use the same language as the “guide’s” Islamic author when demanding absolute obedience to superiors and total dedication to God: witness the teachings of Ignatius of Loyola, the order’s founder: “I believe that the white that I see is black if the hierarchical church so defines it.”
Ignatius of Loyola, we might point out, died in 1556 and, to the best of our knowledge, we haven’t seen many attacks on innocents committed by fanatical Jesuits lately. We haven’t seen any, to be more specific, and if there had been any, we’re pretty sure that most if not all Christian denominations would have denounced them immediately, unreservedly and loudly.
As opposed to the very recent attacks by Islamic fundamentalist that have yet to see a single denunciation by ANY Islamic denomination.
But of course there’s no difference there. None at all.
Throughout history, the Abrahamic religions’ claim of absolute authority has exerted an irresistible appeal on fanatics, encouraging them to impose their own faith on nonbelievers and dissidents alike - if need be by using fire and the sword. To this day, nearly all religions supply the kindling that fuels wars and acts of persecution, sparks torture and murder, and inflames ethnic hatred. Examples abound: the bloody wars between Hindus and Muslims in India,
Instigated by Muslims.
or the enmity between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia.
Also instigated by Muslims.
And your point, other than the one on top of your head, is?
But in the early 1990s, the French sociologist Gilles Kepel pointed out in his book The Revenge of God that extremism was once again surging among Muslims, Christians and Jews.
As proven by the many, many terrorist attacks committed in the name of Jesus and Hashem. Well, except of course that there weren’t any.
Jewish fundamentalists are striving to reestablish Judaism in the largely secular state of Israel and to expel every last gentile. Citing biblical role models, self-appointed henchmen launch crusades against everything deemed an enemy of the Jewish state.
Examples of these “Jewish Crusades”, please? What? You don’t have any? Well, never mind then.
Yigal Amir, who assassinated former Israeli premier Yitzhak Rabin, claimed that he had not committed a murder but carried out an execution. “Congratulations on the happy occasion,” a sympathetic student mocked on the Internet after Rabin’s death. “The evil sorcerer is dead.”
Wow! You found one Jew who assassinated a prime minister? Well, that sort of settles it, doesn’t it? Let’s just forget about the fact that 99.999999% of all other terrorists attacks were committed by Muslims. No difference there. Tell you what, you shmekel, I’m against ALL forms of murderous extremism trying to gain by violence what they can’t achieve at the ballot box, and I’d happily send a round of FMJ through the skull of ANY nutjob wishing to commit murder in the name of ANY god, I wouldn’t lose one second of sleep over it even though I’m a fundamentalist Christianist through-and-through, but let’s cut a deal here. We start off by putting an end to murders committed in the name of Islam. We have to start somewhere, and that one move would take care of the vast majority of religious murders in the world, thus making it much easier to deal with the tiny fringe of subhuman crazies committing atrocities in the name of other gods.
I’m just being pragmatic here, irrational fundamentalist that I am. I don’t see any significant threat from fundamentalist Jews, Buddhists, Pagans, Atheists or Christians, since they’re not the ones responsible of millions of murders, but I will deal with them in time if I have to. I’m just one of those annoying analysts who insist on plugging the biggest holes first rather than wasting time that we don’t have arguing whether “all holes are equal” or not.
Trust me, I’m one pissed off American and I am about as firm in my faith and beliefs as they come but, for all of my angry rants and hyperbole, if I were ever present when some psychopath was trying to murder even my worst ideological enemy for the “crime” of disagreeing with what I believe in, I’d gun the psycho down in a heartbeat because I believe in freedom of speech more than anything else.
Killing in the name of the Lord? Look no further than the Crusades and the Inquisition. Deus lo vult (”It is God’s will”) was the Crusaders’ battle cry. Popes had called upon Christendom to liberate Jerusalem and the Holy Land from Muslim rule. Beyond the prospect of rich plunder, the Crusaders could expect forgiveness for all their crimes.
Leaving aside for the moment that the Crusades happened some 700-800 years ago, making them not terribly relevant to the situation we’re facing today, the main reason for them happening in the first place was that the entire Western world was threatened by a rapacious, unrelenting, military onslaught from the “Religion of Peace.” It’s called “self-defense”. Look it up. Byzantium wasn’t too terribly keen on being wiped out and put under Caliphate rule, much like any other sovereign nation in history has shown a natural aversion to being obliterated, so they pointed out to the rest of the Westerners that they’d be next on the list, which is undeniably true.
Now, most of the Christian leaders who picked up the sword and went off to the unforgiving and barren lands of the Levant could’ve just stayed at home, enjoying their vast estates and their lives of ease, and Pope Urban fully realized that he needed some incentive to convince them to look beyond their own noses, so he invoked the name of G-d. It doesn’t really matter what motivation he used, the fact of the matter is that if it hadn’t been for the much-maligned Crusades, there’d have been nothing stopping the Muslim hordes from chewing up Western Civilization en detail.
There’d have been no Renaissance, no Enlightenment, no industrial revolution, and if you disagree, just go visit a madrassah and ask them how they feel about science. But, all that aside, whether you think that penicillin and hot and cold running water is a good idea or not, the fact remains: The Crusades were defensive wars. The Crusaders didn’t start them, they reacted to an outside threat and fought it to preserve what they believed in, right or wrong, as is the right of all sovereign nations.
And, in the end, it doesn’t really matter. The Crusades and the Inquisition are OVER.
Jihad, on the other hand, ISN’T. It’s as much of a threat as it was in 1096.
And THAT’S the real issue here.
If the Religion of “Peace” wants to live in peace and practice their religion, I have no problem with that. I consider their religious dogma abhorrent and primitive, but that’s for them to decide.
We “Christofascists” don’t run around flying passenger airliners into mosques and I do believe that it’s a difference worth noting.
You leave me and mine the fuck alone and I’ll leave YOU alone.
If you can’t live up to that, then I’ll kill you.

Another Monday has come and gone and, as you all know, this means yet another seemingly endless recap of the Adventures of Jack that nobody will read (judging by the comments, that is). Or maybe it’s just that they’re such self-evident genius and comedic brilliance that none dare suggest improvements. We like to think that but, then again, we would, wouldn’t we?

We realize that it’s awfully bad form to steal the subject of somebody else’s Fisking, particularly when it’s an excellent Fisking indeed, but there are some column inches that are just impossible to resist. Such as this one, in which ABC’s Andy Ostroy(gen) juggles the Goracle’s testicles for two whole pages… With his tongue:
Feb. 27, 2007 — Make no mistake: Former Vice President Al Gore will be our next president.
Make no mistake: It took us a good ten minutes to stop laughing after that opening sentence. Besides, wouldn’t that be against the Constitution? According to libtardian math, he was elected in 2000 and, presumably and considering what a massive intellect he is, re-elected in 2004, so that would make it his third term.
I am as confident about that assertion as I am that George W. Bush will go down in history as America’s worst president ever.
Which means that you’re either delusional or not very confident at all.
Gore is the right man at the right time, for many reasons. And it’s clear that the momentum and buzz is shifting his way big time.
The “buzz” certainly is, but that’s almost entirely due to the full frontal meat whistlings that you and your fellow mediots keep handing out like they were going out of style whenever the Goreacle’s name is mentioned.
At Sunday’s Oscar ceremony, Gore took home the coveted prize for best feature documentary for “An Inconvenient Truth,” his scorching red-flag raiser on global warming.
Which, as we all know, is full of Inconvenient Bull, thus making it yet another in a row of “documentaries” that, well, aren’t. And what’s with the “coveted?” If His Majesty were ever to make a documentary, we can assure you that the last thing we’d ever want would be an Oscar for it. We can’t even imagine the intellectual torment and shame of being mentioned in the same breath as Michael Moore-on and the Goreacle.
On stage he was graceful, poised and presidential.
And very, very bloated. Almost, but not quite, as bloated as his ego.
And it didn’t hurt his hipness quotient any to be getting a little Leo DiCaprio love either. That’s right, Al Gore is suddenly cool.
You simply don’t know cool until you’ve had some man-love slapped on you by all-time butch stud, Leonardo DiCaprio. And, should you be unfortunate enough to find yourself in that position, you’ll spend the rest of your life wishing for the days when you could walk down the street without people snickering behind your back.
It gets even better. In October, Gore will also likely be the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for being the planet’s biggest advocate…
Biggest, no doubt.
…in the fight against climate change.
Which, as anybody who knows about these things will tell you, is about as effective as fighting against the sunset.

I recently read an article in Guideposts Magazine, about a charitable NGO foundation established by actor Gary Sinise (star in Forrest Gump, Apollo 13 and the TV series CSI: NY), and Laura Hillenbrand (author of Seabiscuit, a fine family movie by the way.)
The foundation: Operation Iraqi Children is working to provide vitally needed school supplies for kids in both Iraq and other assistance as funding and logistics permit.
Give till it hurts. Operation Iraqi Children
There is some hope out there, no?

LC Mrs. M, a fine wielder of the ClueBat, posts an excellent article on a young AMERICAN, Riley Woina and his lifelong dream, made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Trip to see the Mouse?…..nope… RANGER Training. He’s only 14, but a man, by any standards.
For all the MurthaLovin Traitors: This kid has more balls than YOU will ever have.
Posted by Mrs. M
One again I went perusing the daily news articles, not intending to post about anything when this one jumped up and grabbed me by the hair of the head.
Go read the whole post and article HERE. That is an ORDER.
G_d Bless you Riley and the fine Americans you trained with.
Thanks for the catching this one Sis.
[Update: I just got a call from my youngest male heir, a PFC with the 3rd ID, 4th Brigade, 6-8 Cavalry Regiment, Charlie Troop at Ft. Stewart. They finally got their deployment orders. Late August/Early September, destination: undisclosed location and duties south of Baghdad.–Proud Dad JB]

Because they’re only slightly more intelligent than yeast:
In perhaps her blondest moment yet, the former Baywatch babe [Pamela Anderson — Emp.M.] has announced she is putting the boot into her footwear staple of the last decade, boycotting Uggs after finally realising they were made from shaved sheep skin.
It finally dawned upon her that her sheepskin boots were made out of, wait for it: SHEEP SKIN.
Keep that in mind the next time one of the airheads is on TV, spreading the verbal diarrhea that they pass off as “opinion.”
Scrambling desperately for something to say in her defense, she only managed to insert her feet deeper into her mouth:
“I used to wear them with my red swim suit to keep warm never realizing that they were skin! I thought they were shaved kindly?”
Indeed they are, Pam. After which their skin is gently flayed off of their still warm bodies. Mheh. Her therapist should be working overtime for a month now.
Reports yet unconfirmed claim that Pammy was later seen rocking back and forth in the fetal position in front of a grocery store shelf with “cat food” on it, refusing to snap out of her catatonic state until the manager had personally assured her that it didn’t contain any cats.
