  • (Vanity) Didn't Take CNN Long To Blame The Iraq War for Amman, Jordan

    Funny ... whenever Al Qaeda is involved, our anti-terror policies (i.e., George Bush) is to blame. It's so sad that the Jordanians hold the terrorists responsible, while American pacifists blame America.

    There is simply no way of rationalizing with self-confessed irrationalists.

    We should look at what is happening in France as a reflection of what is happening here. To whit, in Tallahassee, Florida, the state's top Democrat is supporting a plan to make Spanish classes mandatory for all students in grades K - 2nd.

    If passed, this legislation would make Spanish a requirement, along with math and science.

    Hola. Recepción a los Estados Unidos de Wimps. Pisado sobre nuestra constitución, nuestros leyes, y las nuestras derechas. Tome todo nuestro dinero. Amamos el emasculated.

    The French still take issue with any anti-Muslim comments, tap dancing around their fragile emotions; and what do the French get in return? Cultural suicide.

    If we keep turning a blind eye to the illegal immigrants in this country, we will have the same problem in America as well.

  • AP Reporting Kaine Victory in Virginia

    Living in Virginia, I can tell you that it's no big surprise that Kaine won. From the beginning Kilgore's one campaign motto seemed to be: "Vote for me. I'm not Kaine." His campaign ads were completely negative. Combine that with the fact that both campaigns were fined for improper campaign fliers, and it's quite evident that both candidates were doing anything and everything to win. Unfortunately for Kilgore, Kaine is following in another Democrat's footsteps, Mark Warner. Despite the biggest tax increase in Virginia's history, Mark Warner is viewed favorably by most, including Republicans.

    Honestly, it killed me to vote yesterday. We had the "choice" between Kaine, Kilgore, or Potts; and if you ask me, it was no "choice" at all. I would have preferred that Mark Warner stay in office with choices like that.

    Still, believing that it all starts at home and not wanting another spend-tax-spend-tax Democrat, I voted a straight Republican ticket. The counties overwhelmingly voted for Kilgore. The city voters tipped the scale however by voting for Kaine. No surprise there either. The biggest social welfare recipients live in the cities, and they will always vote Democrat.

    The only positive outcome to the election is that Republicans won the down ticket positions. This will lend balance over the next six years for Virginia. Hopefully, we won't have anymore turncoat Republicans voting for more tax increases.

    On the grander scale, I hate to admit it, but I do feel that the Virginia election is indicative of things to come. It reflects the apathy of Republicans who are dissatisfied with the candidates being offered, who are simply fed up with our so-called representatives not doing what they were elected to do. If Republicans in Washington don't shape up, they will be shipping out as well.
