Where are the Feminists when you need them??? Part II

Now the power hungry, intolerant bully misogynists of Iran are taking out their Islamic self-righteousness, penis angst and inadequacy on women who don't dress to look like shapeless bags and hide every feature God (the real one) has given them to be beautiful. Here is a picture of a woman who has been a 'recipient' of Iranian Islamic love. Women who do not cover themselves properly are now considered "animals".

This picture shows who the real animals are (thank you Gateway Pundit for sharing this sad information with us). Read more at Gateway Pundit's site.

Where are the feminists? Where is the uprising against the extreme male chauvinism of these Iranian men?

Here is part one in case you missed it.

Poverty Politics

This is ironic. John Edwards goes to the University of California at Davis to give a speech at this state funded school. His topic is "Poverty, the Great Moral issue Facing America." His negotiated fee for this speech amounts to $31 per person - about $55,000 for the speech. And this university is going to raise tuition rates for the next school year by about seven percent.

This would not be so obscene except that Edwards proposed that 'every financial barrier' be removed from American students who want to go to college. This has been one of his campaign pledges.

Since Poverty was Edwards' topic, shouldn't he have done the speech for free, and help to relieve the financial burden of the students? That additional $55K could have been used to provide additional scholarships for deserving students so they, too, can climb out of poverty. Who knows? Maybe one of the deserving students will become a personal injury trial lawyer and become rich by winning lawsuits that place additional burdens on the rest of society just like Edwards did.

Former President Jimmy Carter has recently described the Bush administration as "the worst in history" which lead to a White House response that Carter was becoming "increasingly irrelevant."

Now Carter claims his words were
"perhaps careless or misinterpreted." Careless? Probably. Misinterpreted? I don't think so. Those who claim their words were "misinterpreted" when what they said was clear as day were surely "careless."

The problem with "careless" words is that usually come from the true heart of a person.

John Kerry's words were misinterpreted when he "botched" a joke. How many really believe it was a joke? Pat Robertson's words have been "misinterpreted"

Sheikh Taj al-Din al-Hilaly , the "Australian Mufti", claimed he was "misinterpreted" when he said women who do not cover themselves bring rape upon themselves and said they were "uncovered meat."

Jesus said "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks" Luke 6:45 We can't help it. What comes out of our mouths is a true representation of what is in our hearts. When men and women are careless in their speech, they are speaking the most truth - sometimes to their chagrin.

Here's the MSNBC article about Carter's backtracking.

Can't we all get along???

It's not as easy as it seems when not all parties want to play together.

My fellow blogger, Urban Infidel, snapped this at the Gathering of Eagles event yesterday. She's got a great slideshow of the event and the "Gitmo Torture Theater" on her site. It's worth a visit!

Is this legal??? Is this right?

The Santa Fe Police Department is thinking about hiring Mexican Nationals to fill vacancies in the Police Department. The people they are thinking about are here in the US legally, but are not citizens. New Mexico Police Academy regulations prohibit non-citizens from serving as police officers.

What do you think about this???

I want to know if the Mexican Nationals are in the process of acquiring citizenship and have a clean background history. If not, they should be barred from the police force. I think that without some proof of loyalty to the United States of America from the potential applicants the Santa Fe Police Department would open itself to security risks.

I am all for legal immigration as this country is the land of opportunity, and I do believe the immigration process is painfully slow (my mother went through the process when I was a child). But if the Mexican Nationals have no intention of assimilating into our culture and becoming Americans, let them seek out other employment than that which is a critical link in our national security.

Revival in Iraq

If any of my readers are the praying type, please keep the soldiers in Iraq in prayer. One of our church members is a civil servant working there with the military, and we were informed that there will be revival services held for the next three days - May 17 - 19.

I'll let you know more as I find out more. Thanks.

We all should be praying for the troops anyways.

Relationship Advice

I received an e-mail from a friend of mine today. She is a mature lady like I am - a very gracious and attractive lady who has had some bad experiences in relationships. Knowing that she still needs to deal with issues in herself, she writes:

As I am relearning how to live ... I am trying to change old habits. Sometimes I may have higher expectations than I should or sometimes I have no requirements at all. SO I am taking a poll (of my friends..ed.) . How do you expect to be treated in a relationship that is exclusive. For example boyfriend/ girlfriend. What are deal breakers? What expectation is too high or too low?

Here is my reply to her. She found it helpful, and maybe some of my readers will find it useful as well:

Deal breakers.....hmmmm..........

The usual - drugs, alcoholism, unfaithfulness, laziness (no work), inability to support self much less a family no matter how nice they are, lukewarm in their faith.

Other VERY important ones.....uncontrolled anger issues, violence, unrestrained tongue, too clingy (!), Unable to get along with people, lack of the fruit of the spirit in their lives, too quick to get involved sexually, lack of respect for people and especially you, lack of respect for leadership, unsubmissive and unkind.

At our age, the men we get to know will have a trail of fruit - good and bad. My husband had a history of educational and job success and advancement, hard work, purity and innocence (amazing for a sailor). As I got to know him ( and you need time to get to know someone) I could see that he tried hard to be a good husband to his first wife.....I know this because of the way he treats me now.

My husband and I are good friends. We trust each other and respect each other as well as love each other. We recognize that we need each other but because the Lord is first in our lives, we could live without each other if need be.

A "boyfriend/girlfriend" relationship needs to grow out of friendship and mutual respect. Unfortunately, this takes time and face to face contact. I know we long for a relationship where we are special to someone....God put that in us.....but rushing and nurturing the sexual attraction and infatuation is not a good foundation for a lasting relationship. Sexual attraction is a fire that can very quickly get out of control given the right circumstances - and then you have to deal with guilt and regret. Hardly a good start for a couple that is not quite considering a marriage yet!

Think about how friends treat each other - how they talk to each other - how they work together and how they admire each other. Friends know each other's limits. Friends know what is important to the other and they seek to bless each other. Friends regard themselves, too, and keep their boundaries up so they don't lose who they are in a relationship. Friends are free to be who they are without having to change just for the other person to make them happy. Isn't that what you want in a lasting relationship?

I hope this helps.

God bless you!

The Mouse of Death

Have you seen this outrage? A Cute Mouse with a Killer Message! A Palestinian children's show has a Mickey Mouse like character teaching children about Islamic domination. Farfur Mouse helps to teach how bad Jews and "unbelievers" are, and encourages young children to fight and die for "Allah" or the "Al Asar Mosque".

What a far cry from Sesame Street or Disney Land where "It's a Small World After All" (I hate that song, but appreciate the need for respect and tolerance among the nations of the world.)

Has Disney threatened to sue the producers of this show - Maybe for about $500 million and all of your WMD and suicide belts - the Kid sized ones especially!

Weep for the children with poisoned minds.

Where are the Feminists when you need them???

This is just disgusting!!

Follow this link to discover a "Saudi Family Expert" telling families on Saudi TV that if "a Wife Licks Pus and Blood Coming Out of Her Husband's Nose - She Still Would Not Have Observed All His Rights". Is this guy for real???? Is this how a woman should be treated????

You can view the clip here. It is #1447

Excellent Satire

I have to give credit where credit is due for this excellent article. It is pure satire. Warning: if you are a Democrat you may be deeply offended by what you read.

Thank you, louisianaconservative, for this insightful article:

Why I am Switching to the Democrat Party (Inspired By Boasso)

It’s been hard for me to write lately, but not because of a lack of inspiration. I have been extremely inspired by Walter Boasso, the Demo switched Repub switched Demo. Like Walter Boasso who would schedule as guest speaker to Republican organizations only to back out at the last second, I too, feel that it is very inappropriate to continue pushing a conservative agenda while the issue isn’t settled whether I’d be a Republican or a Democrat.

But the time has come for me to let the public know that I have finally reached a decision and to explain that decision to the readers of Louisiana Conservative Dot Com. I am indeed, planning on switching parties. I have every intention of registering as a Democrat. It would not be fair to my readers for me to stand so strongly for conservative issues when it does not represent what I stand for.

I am still the same person I was yesterday and the day before, or last weekend, or the month before. I am still who I am, just with changes to reflect who I am when you first meet me. Other than these changes everything else is still the same, the brain is the same brain, the heart is the same heart, I did not have any organ transplants. I am still the same person.

So let me explain to you why I have ultimately decided to switch to the Democrat party. When you stop to think about it, it’s a very easy decision to make. It’s a very easy decision for any of us to make, and I’d like to encourage you to think about how easy it would be for you to switch to the Democrat party as well.

It’s much easier because I can stand for whatever I want to stand for and call it compassion. It’s easy because I can accuse people who are against “illegal immigration” as being hypocrites and anti-immigrant. I can just lump them into a single category and call them racist. It doesn’t matter what they say, because I care and they don’t.

I can hate Christians, doing everything I can to keep them out of the process, but feel very warm and caring towards a religion, in which people often tie bombs to theirselves and kill everybody who disagrees with them. Who cares if radical Muslims kill innocent people on the other side planet and who want to kill Americans for being infidels when we have Christians here who want to force people to read the Ten Commandments? Do you realize that if people read the Ten Commandments, they might actually obey them? If people obey the Ten Commandments, they might stop murdering, and if they stop murdering, there will be less executions, and if that happens, I’d have one more reason to get a job and one less reason to run around protesting. I like Tookie Williams, he wrote a children’s book. He likes telling little kids stories, in fact, I’ll bet he even read a story to those two kids before he murdered them.

Why should we try to stop Islamo-fascist from killing us? Afterall, when you stop to think about it, they are just like you and me, except with bombs tied to them and reason missing from their brains. I mean what have Muslim terrorists ever done to America? So you say 9-11? Well that really isn’t true because it was our fault for electing George Bush and we all know Bush lied, that it was really a conspiracy. Truth is, the towers never even fell. They still exist, but Bush moved the Towers to a special location because he wanted the American people to support him so he can get revenge for his daddy. George Bush gave the towers to England as payment for their support in the war and the Towers are underneath ‘Downing Street’. It’s easy to bury you head in the sand and say it was all just an illusion.

I want to say 3,000 soldier deaths is the equivalent of the 58,000 lives we lost in Vietnam. It’s the same thing. Maybe next time we get into a war, we’ll only lose ten lives before we quit. Quitting is easy. Like many of you, I want to go to war, support my country as we launch an attack onto another country, but once it starts getting bloody, I want to quit. I want to follow public opinion, worry about what other people think about me, and no matter what, always act like only my position is the only way to be compassionate. Why should we kill people just because they are going to kill us? After all, it’s not nearly as awful as those right wing christian extremist who want to take away a woman’s right to choose.

I want to put my personal interests above my country’s interests. That’s what Patriotism is. Patriotism is when a politicians thinks gaining seats in congress for his political party is more important than the well being of his country. Why would anybody think Patriotism is putting your country ahead of your own personal interests? That’s just silly to say that because if that were the case, then I’d say that Patriotism has long left this country. You’d be hard pressed to find ten congressmen out of over 500 who put this country ahead of their own political interests, and that’s not including our state officials.

I have an American flag in my home, but switching parties probably means I’m going to have to get rid of it. Like many of you had to do after 9-11, if, well when my country gets attacked again, I want to have to run out to Wal-mart and buy a flag so I can wave it around and show how ‘Patriotic’ I am. Oh, that’s right, I can’t shop at Wal-mart anymore, that would be unpatriotic. I suppose I’ll have to complain about the practices of Wal-mart, such as giving elderly people a low paying job, even though the company I work for won’t even give elderly people a job. Truth is, the real reason I must hate Wal-mart is because they donate to the Republican party and how dare they not give all their money to the Democrat party?

It’s easy to switch to the Democrat party because I want to live forever. I want to live forever and I want you to pick up the expenses of my healthcare. Why should I have to die when you have plenty of money in your pocket to pay for my doctors? Why should I live in fear of anything? I want to support every single new law that comes out, especially if I can call myself compassionate while looking out for my best interests. I want to prohibit smoking in every place, even in your own home. I want to make guns illegal. I want to accuse hunters of wanting to go hunting with an AK-47. Why do you even need a gun with real bullets to go hunting? You can go in the backyard and kill pigeons with a BB gun, it’s just as exciting and shooting deer with a bazooka.

I want to hate the rich, because it’s easy to blame them for my poverty, even though many of them came from poverty. At the same time, I want to idolize rich guys who make all the money in their country and keep everybody else poor. I want to hate George Bush for being for the rich, and for being a dictator, while praising Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro who are the rich guys who keeps an entire country in poverty and tramples on the freedoms of the people. That too me is real democracy from now own, because I am a Democrat.

I want to be narcissistic enough to believe I am God-like, that I have the power to destroy the planet, thus have the power to save the planet. I want to worship people like Al Gore, who preach to the rest of us how we ought to live, while doing 20 times more to ‘destroy’ the planet than the average Joe. I like lecturing people, telling them to use safe lightbulbs that contain mercury, telling them to flush their toilets once a week, and to use only one sheet of toilet paper except with those occassional ‘messy situations’. I’m better than you now, so do what I say, not as I do.

I want to vote Democrat because it’s easier than getting a job. I want to sit at home everyday, watching Oprah Winfrey, Jerry Springer, and Montel Williams and collect a welfare check. I want to tell people I am a ‘Professional Daytime Talkshow Analyst’ because it’s a compassionate term. I want to take the easy way out, and blame you Republicans because I can’t find a job.

I don’t want my country helping oil companies get rich by allowing them to drill for oil anywhere. Not in Anwar, not in the gulf, not anywhere I say, I say. If we did that, than wouldn’t the supply only become more, thus driving down the price of gasoline? If we did that, then how can I blame George Bush for the high price of gasoline? And how would my new hero, Hugo Chavez, get richer and keep the people of Venezuela poor if the price of gas decreased?

I want government to solve every single one of my problems, because my problems aren’t because of my lifestyle choices, but because life is unfair. Would we be any less of a free country if government passed more and more laws? I say no. Government has a duty, not to protect our freedom, but to protect us from dying. If I make a mistake, why should I learn from it? Government should make laws to prevent you from making stupid decisions that affect my life, but it shouldn’t keep me from making stupid decisions that affect your life. For example, if I choose to stay home and smoke marijuana all day long, and make children with several different women, why should you judge me? You just need to keep your mouth shut and pay for my lifestyle choices because you have the money to pay for it. Don’t lecture me with ‘if you can’t feed em, don’t breed em’. Just pay and keep your mouth shut because I am now a Democrat. That’s what government ought to do, make you pay for my choices and stay out of my life, but to make sure you’re doing exactly what I think you ought to do.

Government ought to tell businesses how much you have to pay me, how many days I should get off, how many days off that you have to pay me for, what you can sell and when you can sell it. Government ought to regulate how you run your business and make sure that you are taking care of my needs too.

I also can enjoy sex now that I am a Democrat. Yes, you can expect me to start talking about sex. I can make judgements about people concerning sex now. As a Democrat, it’s my duty to judge Republicans because of sex. You see, I can tell people to wear condoms, love homosexuals, encourage people to ‘explore their sexuality’ and to criticize you self righteous Republicans who want to stick your nose into my bedroom. I will call myself ‘open-minded’ and run around acting like I discovered sex yesterday. I guess this means I have too start watching a lot more porn, does that mean I’d be sticking my nose into their bedrooms? Because I do this, I can be completely appalled when I stick my nose into other people’s bedroom and find out that somebody molested a child.

There are some more benefits to switching to the Democrat party. I get to talk about how much I am for love, freedom of speech, and self righteous people. At the same time I get to hate George Bush and Republicans, try to silence people I disagree with like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, even people that I normally would agree with like Don Imus. The best part about this, is that I get to do all this because I am compassionate, I care, I am intellectual, I am always right. I am perfect, and because I am perfect, the world cannot be perfect until everybody agrees with me. In the words of another one of my new found heros- John Lennon, “Maybe someday you will join us, and the world will be as one.” You see, we’re perfect, we don’t need to change. You have to change and then the world will be good.

Love Letter from Howard Dean

I received this in my e-mail box today:

Dear Radiant,
Iraq Veto

President Bush has hit a new low -- and I'm not talking about his 28% approval ratings.

Today, he ignored the majority of Americans and he defied the majority of Congress. And what's worst, he told our brave men and women in uniform that they will be the ones to pay the price.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: a Democratic president wouldn't veto that bill. We put forward a thoughtful plan and the President rejected it.

Only a Democratic victory in 2008 will ensure that this war comes to a responsible end. To ensure a Democratic victory, we have to build our election operation now -- we just can't afford to wait until there's a nominee. Make a contribution and help take back the White House today:

When President Bush rejects a troop withdrawal plan supported by nearly two-thirds of the country, he's not working for the American people -- he's working for himself.
I get sick of this kind of letter. It leaves out so much. First, all the pork that was put in the bill to make it pass would have gone a long way to meeting the needs of our troops.

Examples of non-emergency pork-barrel spending include:

· $25 million for spinach
· $50 million for the "Capitol Hill Power Plant"
· $5 million for tropical fish
· $283 million for the Milk Income Loss Contract Program
· $74 million for peanut storage costs
· $120 million for shrimp and menhaden fishing industries
· $25 million for livestock producers
· $15 million for crop damage
· $100 million for citrus producers

Second, where does Dean get off saying the troop withdrawal plan is supported by two-thirds of American people (The percentage at the moment is 59%, not 66% for 2/3, and nobody asked me)?

Well, Dean is known for his exaggeration, and he is the head of the DNC after all. One would expect a Jackass to bray.

Can there be any doubt???

Some people say that Islam is the "Religion of Peace." I know a few muslims who live here who are "peaceful." That is because they appreciate the freedoms and lifestyle of the United States of America. Sheik Ahmad Bahr would be killing them if he were here right now. In fact, Bahr wants all of us dead. Every American and Israeli. And they call them selves adherents of a "Religion of Peace."

Here are his very words. Read them and shake yourself free from ignorance. Realize that there is no possibility of peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Realize that there is an aggressive contingency prepared to behead you and destroy your loved ones simply because you are not a Muslim.

Ahmad Bahr began: "You will be victorious" on the face of this planet. You are the masters of the world on the face of this planet. Yes, [the Koran says that] "you will be victorious," but only "if you are believers." Allah willing, "you will be victorious," while America and Israel will be annihilated. I guarantee you that the power of belief and faith is greater than the power of America and Israel. They are cowards, who are eager for life, while we are eager for death for the sake of Allah. That is why America's nose was rubbed in the mud in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Somalia, and everywhere.

Bahr continued and said that America will be annihilated, while Islam will remain. The Muslims "will be victorious, if you are believers." Oh Muslims, I guarantee you that the power of Allah is greater than America, by whom many are blinded today. Some people are blinded by the power of America. We say to them that with the might of Allah, with the might of His Messenger, and with the power of Allah, we are stronger than America and Israel.

The Hamas spokesperson concluded with a prayer, saying: "Oh Allah, vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one. Oh Allah, show them a day of darkness. Oh Allah, who sent down His Book, the mover of the clouds, who defeated the enemies of the Prophet defeat the Jews and the Americans, and bring us victory over them."

What will you do? Can there be any doubt that we have an enemy? Any Democrats listening? Pelosi? Reid? Clinton?
