We’ll skip the bait, which is basically nothing but a preamble, offering three paragraphs worth of pious nonsense about how wonderful it would be if our students could learn a bit more about religion in school. A good point, since there is, thanks to the decades old socialist war on Christianity, a high level of religious illiteracy in our country. What our children know about basic Biblical facts they certainly didn’t learn in school unless they went to a private one. He also adds the caveat that it should be teaching, not preaching, which I, as a Christian, have absolutely no problem with. Quite to the contrary. I don’t want any religion forced down anybody’s throat, least of all my own.
Then, having assured that all of the Christofascists are nodding sagely with his token pablum, pacified by his pleasant bromides, he unloads the real agenda of his article:
Let’s also teach about Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism and the world’s other major religions. Especially, let’s teach students about Islam.
And no, he doesn’t mean teach them about islam, he means indoctrinate them in the CAIR propaganda version.
But first, he has to set the scene properly, painting a picture of a peaceful, humble, yet horribly and unfairly oppressed Religion That Does Not Dare Speak Its Name (somebody tell that to the flying imams and their friend in the known terrorist front organization CAIR, please):
The necessity of learning about the world’s second most-popular religion was driven home for me on a recent visit to a small Muslim K-8 school in Oregon, operated by the Muslim Educational Trust. I initially noticed the conspicuous absence of an address - even a city - on the school’s website. Upon arrival, I was struck again by the school’s deliberate obscurity: Tucked behind a fence, it bore no sign and gave no indication whatsoever that students and teachers (many of them Caucasian, incidentally) were busy at work behind its non-descript white walls.
Why the obscurity? It sounds more like a heavily camouflaged army observation post deep behind enemy lines than a school and yes, that’s exactly what the author wants you to think. You see, those poor oppressed RoP’ers have to hide from the barbarian hordes searching high and low for them, so that they may rape, murder and pillage the poor innocents the first chance they get:
You can guess the reason why the school keeps its profile low. Islam is reviled in many quarters, equated with terrorism and iron-clad theocracy. Muslims and their mosques have been the targets of occasional violence and vandalism since the 9/11 attacks,
As we recall, a misguided ape went berserk and killed a Sikh right after 9/11. He later, if we remember correctly, got the death penalty that he so richly deserved. And that was right after the worst attack on American civilians in the history of our nation. His Majesty has never been as proud of his nation as he was when that turned out to be all of the backlash there would be. One too many, to be sure, but having just watched 3,000 of my countrymen murdered on live TV, murdered by muslim fanatics in the name of islam, I had feared a grief and anger-fueled orgy of retributions of truly Biblical proportions. Thankfully, that never came to pass.
Since then, there have been the occasional insulting act such as sticking a slice of bacon in a koran and leaving it outside a mosque and, of course, the pig’s head incident. Oh, and then there are the acts of “racist hatred” that were staged by muslims themselves to gain sympathy and increase the credit limit on their Visa Victim Card™.
Many of our loyal readers are aware of the infant, yet massively growing Internet Radio media. According to Nielsen media research approximately 70 million Americans listen to internet radio monthly. Internet Radio provides a choice not available to many, as it’s free, generally without the mind numbing commercial advertising and the literally thousands of stations streaming provide an incredibly varied selection of music to every type of music one could ask for.
More recently many of our LCs enjoyed pure talk-radio, with the Emperor, myself and BC on the Wide Awakes Radio (WAR) network, currently on hiatus. LC Country-Red (my muchprettier half) and I continue broadcasting on RadioCIA offering Country-Western, Bluegrass, Gospel, Christian Messages and of course, my Rottifically slashing rants on the Tuesday Truth Show. Additionally we are fully committed to broadcasting new independent artists, that are otherwise incapable of getting exposure on-air through the large commercial stations. We have enjoyed a huge increase in listener hours and consistently place in the Top 10 listings (a dynamic, continuous, real-time rating system). Regardless of our success, we’ve remained non-profit, non-commercial and continue to pay all expenses out of pocket.
Legal internet radio stations, such as RadioCIA are licensed to stream their music content via fees paid to the streaming host server companies they contract with. A reasonable agreement regarding streaming audio was arbitrated by congress, via creation of the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB). Subsequently to this, quite a bit of legal wrangling permitted small and non-profit internet broadcasters, such as RadioCIA to negotiate a reasonable fee for their royalties. Consequently an act of congress, the Small Broadcaster Settlement Act ensured a continued, reasonable fee structure for the infant media broadcasters, however it expired on January 1, 2006.
That fee we believe, was entirely fair and beneficial to all parties involved as well as allowing an individual to set-up and operate their own stations providing a fantastic public service, that truly was a voice of the people, unlike the irretrievably biased and taxpayer funded Corporation for Pubic Broadcasting and NPR. It’s interesting to note, that terrestrial based radio has NEVER paid even these fees. It was recognized very early in radio, that broadcasting was of benefit to the artists, their recording labels, the stations and the public by increasing recording sales.
Following the expiration of the act, the RIAA and a new player SoundExchange launched a successful litigation before the CRB, resulting in a ruling that the internet broadcasters would now pay a monstrous fee structure, retroactive to 1/1/2006. This egregious ruling would slam internet broadcasters with fees similar to that paid by music download services along with retroactive fees to January 2006. The actual fees for a successful station like RadioCIA would increase by 2000%/month along with a one-time retroactive charge. Furthermore, the monthly fees would escalate for a period of years to even more stratospheric rates. The net effect of this mafia-like extortion would be to immediately shut-down all but the largest, corporate streaming stations. The majority of these being the larger terrestrial broadcasters currently streaming their content. Again of note, is the terrestrial portion of their broadcasting does not entail any of these royalties, remaining status quo.
We all lose in this nefarious, greedy move. “We the people” will lose real choice in our available choice of music entertainment, independent artist will lose virtually all their current exposure offered by the small internet-based broadcasters.
We need help to get this death-knell ruling reversed. A small, underfunded coalition of broadcasters has thus far failed for relief before the CRB. However, a bi-partisan bill has been introduced in Congress, H.R. 2060- “The Internet Radio Equality Act”. This act would reverse the CRB ruling and allow us to continue broadcasting and serving the public with programming not available via any other means.
We need support from all to contact their elected representatives in DC to push this bill through the legislature, otherwise Internet Radio will go silent on May 15.
Please visit the SaveNetRadio website for additional information on saving another valuable choice for everyone.
We can’t allow any infringement on our use of the internet, period. I can see this ballooning beyond just audio content streaming into an even juicier target of the ‘net in general.
Thankfully, this animal was stopped before it could mail a video “manifesto” that NBC could air the shit out of. Or so we hope (link thanks to LC Kristopher):
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A shooting at a shopping center Sunday afternoon left three people dead, including the gunman, police said.
In other words, two dead. We don’t include animals in body counts in the Empire.
Two people were shot about 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Ward Parkway Center, according to police. Then, the gunman went inside the mall and fired more shots, wounding at least two people, police spokesman Tony Sanders said.
The man was shot to death inside the mall, Sanders said. Police fired shots, but it was not immediately clear if he was killed by police.
And, should it turn out that it was an armed citizen doing the good deed, you can rest assured that we won’t find out.
Mars is being hit by rapid climate change and it is happening so fast that the red planet could lose its southern ice cap, writes Jonathan Leake.
Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.
So, over identical time periods, the two planets seem to have been experienced identical temperature changes? Hmmm… We’re sure there’s a clue in here somewhere, but we’ll be damned if we can find it… Wait! Eureka! We’ve GOT it!
There IS life on Mars, and they’re driving big SUVs while raping Mother Martia with their foul, unsustainable energy production!
Since there is no known life on Mars it suggests rapid changes in planetary climates could be natural phenomena.
Er… Careful there… If the Goreacle and his Church of Gorebeciles hear you saying that, you’ll end up with a visit from the Moonbat Gorequisition when you least expect it.
“NOOOOOObody expects the Moonbat GorequiSItion! Cardinal Prius, Rrrrrrread the chargesssss!”
Of course, no post would be complete without its obligatory Idiotarian guest appearance:
The mechanism at work on Mars appears, however, to be different from that on Earth. One of the researchers, Lori Fenton, believes variations in radiation and temperature across the surface of the Red Planet are generating strong winds.
Variations in radiation and temperature? Hmmm… What culprit in our solar system could possibly cause variations in radiation and temperature?
It couldn’t be… THIS?
Of course, luckily, Mother Gaia is completely immune to that insignificant spark of flame. Down here, every temperature change is caused by your cousin Cletus’ 4×4.
In a paper published in the journal Nature, she suggests that such winds can stir up giant dust storms, trapping heat and raising the planet’s temperature.
So, you see, the dust storms are causing the heat increase, the dust storms that are originally caused by wind, winds in turn caused by increases in…
SHUT UP! HERETIC!!!
Next, some iconoclastic heathen will start suggesting that rising temperatures lead to rising CO2 levels and not, as His Most Holy Pontiff, Father Goreacle, tells us, the other way around.
Are there any presidential candidates who inspire you? I talk to John Edwards more than I talk to anyone. He has said more things about the conditions we need to think about. He went to yoga with me. He did the whole class, an hour and a half. He sweated like crazy. He’s in good shape, but it was hard on him.
LC & IB Dean ends his post with this request:
Once again, I must put a call out to photo-shoppers who aspire for a fleeting moment of fame. You know what you have to do. One action photo of John Edwards doing yoga, please. I eagerly await your submissions.
As you wish, although it required no work on His Majesty’s part, since all we had to do was to dig out a photo of Silky Pony Sweaty Pretzel from our archives:
You’re welcome, Dean.

OAKLAND, Calif. — A section of freeway that funnels traffic off the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge collapsed early Sunday after a gasoline tanker truck overturned and caught fire beneath it, authorities said.
The heat was intense enough to melt part of the freeway and cause the collapse, but the truck’s driver walked away from the scene with second-degree burns.
No other injuries were reported, which officials said was only possible because the accident happened so early on a Sunday morning.
Thank G-d for the lack of deaths and serious injuries, but I think that FOX are missing the true implications of this event:
FIRE CAN’T MELT STEEL!
We know this because that most wise of bloated, lesbian Moonbat vampires, Rosie O’Donut told us so. The debate is over on that issue. Never in history has fire melted steel, so this is obviously yet another black ops conspiracy against the American people concocted in the dark dungeons of the White House.
***UPDATE:*** Still doubting when you have the truth right in front of your lying eyes? Consider this: Are we to believe that the driver, after a fire that allegedly “melted steel”, walked off with nothing but second degree burns? Oh, and did you notice that there were no Jooos driving on the overpass when it happened? Coincidence, or had they all been told to stay at home that day?
In the People’s Republik of Illinois, Hizzoner Daley and Gov. Blabbervich are busy trying to push a ban of all semi-automatic firearms as well as those Evil .50 guns, muzzle loaders included, that have been running rampant across the nation, forming gangs and gunning down innocent people by the bushel load.
Well, at least they’re trying to do something about the Demon 9 mm Guns that have us all fearing for our lives. Speaking of which, when I awoke this morning the Imperial 9 mm was snickering evilly and, on its slide, I found the word “REDRUM” written in what appeared to be blood. Sure enough, outside was the thoroughly perforated corpse of one of the neighborhood strays. Coincidence? I think NOT! But I digress…
Thanks to LC Croaker, we learn that the good citizens of Pike County, Illinois, have pre-emptively told Hizzoner and his lapdog Governor to shove it where the sun don’t shine:
On Tuesday evening the Pike County Board citing the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, passed a resolution saying no to any state legislation limiting the right to keep and bear arms would be recognized in Pike County.
Their resolution minces no words:
“Now, Therefore, It Be And Is Hereby Resolved, that the people of Pike County, Illinois, do oppose the enactment of any legislation that would infringe upon the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms, and deem such laws to be Unconstitutional and beyond lawful Legislative Authority.”
In short, no state law placing any limitations on firearms will be valid in Pike County.
They could’ve sent the same message in two simple words, “molon labe”, but this will do nicely. Very nicely indeed.
I can’t begin to describe how encouraging this is. Finally, finally somebody has dared state what should be self-evident, that faraway corrupt prostitute politicians need to quit meddling and mind their own damn business, that they can pass all of the idiotic bills they want; they won’t mean a thing unless We the People let them.
One of the two Pike County Board Members who sponsored the Resolution, Robert Kanady, says he hopes the measure would “be the spark that lights a cannon heard all across the United States.”
Co-sponsor Mark Mountain said: “We have to stand up. We have to voice our opinion. As an individual, it doesn’t mean much. As a county, it means more. As three or four counties, it means a lot.”
Well spoken indeed. If the modern day King Georges try to lord it over us from their mansions far away, it is our duty to tell them to go hang. Metaphorically at first, but if they don’t get the message the first time… The Tree of Liberty is getting thirsty.
In the overfilled courtroom where the public meeting leading to the resolution was held, one particularly fine citizen stood up and said:
“This proposed legislation would greatly harm the citizens of this county, and we believe the members of our County Board are bound by the oaths of office to speak for us on this issue.
“The issue here is not politics, the issue is freedom. Freedom began in this nation more than 200 years ago, when small groups of people like us, in towns even smaller than ours, gathered together to tell the King who tried to rule them from a huge city an ocean away, ‘Enough is enough!’ Freedom will only survive today if we have the courage to do the same.”
In closing, he offered: “In this room tonight we are not conservatives; we are not liberals. In this room tonight we are not Democrats; we are not Republicans. In this room tonight we are Americans.”
After a well-deserved standing ovation, the resolution was overwhelmingly passed by the Commission.
Well done, fine citizens of Pike County. You have, indeed, upheld the fine tradition of American Patriots, and the Founding Fathers, I’m sure, would be proud of you.
I know I am.
You’ve shown the way, now it is the duty of all of us to follow.
As you may have noticed, other than the MSM scare campaign about high-cap magazines that has now been thoroughly debunked — as well it should be since it, in the finest tradition of “professional journalism”, was founded on nothing even resembling facts — they’ve also been working themselves up quite a bit over the truly frightening characteristics of the humble 9mm Parabellum round, or “Euro Pellet” as we like to call it around here.
“Loseweek”, forever covetous of going where no hysteric has ever dared to thread, manage to conjure up visions of that most lethal of all rounds lurking inside demonically possessed pistols, haunting our lands independent of human assistance in search of victims.
It would make for a great, if somewhat silly, horror flick, but “Loseweek” is, of course, presenting it as journalism.
Besides, having read “Loseweek’s” infantile efforts at fiction, we need a break to go secure our own 9mm. If we’d only known about the snake we’ve been nursing at our bosom… We shudder to think what it might have done in the middle of the night, loaded up and ready to go with no-one in sight to stop its murderous intentions.
There. We gave it a very stern talking to, letting it know in no uncertain terms that, should it ever decide to jump up and go on a murderous rampage, we should be very cross indeed. It, of course, being the obstinate, recalcitrant, murderous little bastard that it is, refused to acknowledge our admonishments with as much as a “yes sir”, but we think that we got our point across when we cut its weekly ammunition allowance.
That and insinuatingly waving around a can of pink paint in front of it.
Of course, now that we know how truly frighteningly lethal the 9mm is, a murder machine among firearms, we’re almost embarrassed to still have those harmless .45s around. Well, as long as we don’t tell anybody…
One thing you can always count on the LCs to do is to rise to the occasion when they see a challenge, and what better challenge than to join The Imperial Firearms Advisor’s quest to turn our nation back into a Nation of Riflemen, one citizen at a time?
Like Kim, few things thrill me more than to hear from yet another citizen who has become a safe, responsible gun owner.
It is a serious responsibility indeed, one of the most serious of all since it involves the power over life and death should, G-d forbid, a situation arise that can’t be resolved otherwise, so it cannot be celebrated too much when another gentleman or -woman decides to accept it.
That, and the obvious truth that with every new armed, responsible gun owner our beloved nation becomes a much safer place for all of us.
So you’ll pardon me for being a bit exuberant when that happens. Pardon me or accept the fact that I don’t care whether you do or not.
So it’s with great joy that I announce that LC Elchonon has joined the fellowship.
Sit down. I’m not done yet…
It’s also with great joy that I recognize, at LC Elchonon’s request (and with no argument from me whatsoever), a certain somebody who was absolutely instrumental in bringing about this happy state of affairs and introducing him to our happy band of brothers, a certain LC 0311 Crunchie.
You see, Crunchie is a qualified instructor, so he picked up LC Elchonon from the train station, whereupon he took him to his classroom and gave him the proper CCW course free of charge, drove him another 45 minutes to a range and continued his instruction there, helped him with equipment and, as icing on the cake, provided him with a manly 1911 loaner until he can get his own.
If that’s not “above and beyond”, then I don’t know what is, so here’s a shoutout to an outstanding friend, Marine and mensch. And, of course, an obnoxiously loud:
