Condi Rice Change of Heart

In the event that I blogged in favor of Condoleezza Rice at any point in the past, which I'm pretty sure that I did, I would like to retract that now.

I was very impressed with her as National Security Advisor and I was sure that such a tigress would make primo leadership, maybe even presidential, material. I've been stunned at the rapidity with which she turned into a bowl of wobbling Jell-O as Secretary of State. Either she was faking before, or the State Department's powers of corruption are greater than we ever dreamed of. I suppose it's not called the Department of Treason for nothing. Sigh.

Actors and Actresses as Pundits

Tom Cruise channels Lord Xenu

I found this post as a forgotten draft from last year. I don't remember what had me so riled, but it's an ongoing problem, so I'll update and post.

I've never really understood why being on television gives someone instant credibility. It was bad enough when there were only 3 channels, but these days with 500+ channels, some of them public access, just about everybody and his Laotian brother-in-law are on TV. Last night my wife and I went to see the new Robin Williams flick "Man of the Year". It was cute but not as funny as I had hoped. The saddest and funniest moment came as we were leaving and one of the men sitting behind me told the other, "That's the kind of candidate we need in real life." Some people are like clay mentally, as yet their vote counts as much as mine.

I have always wondered how the hell we got to this situation. In my studies of history I've learned that in centuries past acting was considered a scummy profession. Low enough on the social food chain that in some cases women of any social class weren't permitted to act. Apparently it was too demeaning, for even hookers, so men dressed in drag played the female roles. My how times have changed.

I've heard so much stupitidy spew from the mouths of actors and actresses that I know just assume they're morons until they're proven otherwise. I got a good example of the sort of Bizarro world we live in when I was looking for graphic above. I searched on "stupid actors"--and got mostly pictures of actors that I like. Hurray for Hollyweird.

 

A Humorous Note

Just as a side note. For my post "Are The Muslims 10 Feet Tall?" I went searching for a grapic of a giant by searching on the keyword "giant" naturally enough. Imagine my horror as a screen full of mutant penises filled my display just as my 7-year old niece's friend walked into my office. I don't think she saw anything other than me scrambling to close the window.

 

Are The Muslims 10 Feet Tall?

Liberals Confront a Muslim Midget

I don't know about you, but I've noticed a disturbing trend among some of my fellow citizens. It reminds me a great deal of the way some people viewed the Soviets back before their collapse. To judge by what was in the popular media back then we were doomed. Our only real option was to put off the inevitable as long as possible. The inevitable being swallowed up by the vastly more moral, if not superior Communist/Socialist juggernaut.

Back during the 1980s I came across a rather refreshing article titled something like "Are The Russians Ten Feet Tall?". The article argued that far from being the invincible supermen that Americans feared (or in some cases adored). The Soviets were in serious trouble. Sadly, I don't remember many particulars of the story. Mostly I just remember feeling relief at some sign that I might not wind up working on a collective farm somewhere after all.

Now I hear from time to time the same sort of thing being said about the Muslims: They can't be contained or defeated. There are too many of them. They are too fanatical. They are more dedicated and so forth. While we Westerners are too fat, lazy, stupid, ignorant, agnostic, ambivilant, etc. to preserve ourselves. I've even heard a co-worker once state that we deserved to be conquered and oppressed as punishment for what we have "done" to the rest of the world. I don't know about you, but I'm sure that the statute of limitations has run out on colonialism, Indian wars, slavery, etc.

Like most of you I'm sure, I've been continually researching Islam and the Muslim world and I find a lot of chinks in their armor that could be exploited, if only we lived in a society that exploit its advantages. One of these is Muslim (or at least Arab) disdain for physical labor. It's my understanding that starting at the bottom and working your way up is an unfathomable concept to most. I've read that its not uncommon for an otherwise able-bodied man to sit around unemployed for 10 years, smoking and quaffing coffee at the local coffee shop while waiting for "suitable" employment (e.g. management).

Another I've heard and read about is their penchant for physical cowardice. Naturally, some will raise the specter of suicide attacks as proof that they are very brave indeed. I believe that is false on a numbers of counts: first, although there are obviously far too many people willing to be suicide bombers, the numbers pales in comparison to the number of Muslims available take the job (plus I consider suicide bombing to be evolution in progress); second, we must bear in mind that the numb nut actually believes he is on his way to have exclusive sexual access with 72 women for all eternity, I suspect that instead of brave he may simply be horny; third, if you'll recall the first Gulf War, you'll remember the droves of enemy soldiers scratching and clawing at each other in order to be first to surrender, sometimes to unmanned reconnaisance drones. The Gulf War presented an opportunity for every supply clerk and mess cook to be a Sergeant York.

There is another area that could be exploited, though I'm sure it will be denounced as cynical and mercenary. That is playing on the fault lines that run through the Muslim world. Sunnis and Shiites despise each other almost as much as they hate us. It seems like the only thing they can agree on is Kurdish genocide. The Wahabbis are nutier than squirrel excrement and the world tends to forget that the Iranians are not Arabs, but rather Persians and have long considered the Arabs to be little more than hairless monkeys. We could play on that. I know it probably makes me a "bad" person, but I'm not so sure that civil war in Iraq is such a bad thing. Muslims killing Muslims is the epitome of the win-win situation.

The Inmates Are Running The Asylum

Just in case you're interested in evidence that the world has gone stark raving mad, here are a few updates.

Number 1: The former mayor pro tem of Dallas, now with LULAC (aka The Mexican Nazi Party), is suing the officers of the Dallas Police Department--for not being able to speak Spanish. The suit has been filed on behalf of a man who was injured during an arrest. The rationale is that the Dallas Police Department was negligent in fielding police officers that couldn't speak Spanish, which resulted in the need for excessive force to effect the arrest. This was caught in passing on a radio report. I'll post more if and when I get the details.

Also heard in the same radio report. The Dallas Independent School District is in trouble. It seems that they were unable to hire the number of bilingual teachers that they were required to have by law. (An enlightened law--for the children--I'm sure.) Desperate the DISD went recruiting in Mexico where they were able to hire some teachers, with $4,500 in hiring bonuses and other goodies. Unfortunately, nobody bothered to look "bilingual" up in the dictionary. The new teachers speak Spanish all right, but that's all they speak. In at least several cases the new-hires speak no English whatsoever.

Seeing as how Texas is one of the LEAST Politically Correct states in the country, I really worry about the rest of you guys.

Update: It wasn't the Dallas ISD, but rather a suburb.

--Dennis Prager--


Nothing could be more jolting and discordant with the vision of today's intellectuals than the fact that it was businessmen, devout religious leaders and Western imperialists who together destroyed slavery around the world.

It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones.
