From various and sundry. Some plainly true, some unclear, some make no sense at all.

'The enemy is anybody who's going to get you killed, no matter which side he's on.'

More Wal-Mart Hatred
The tobacco companies got their head handed to them. Some of it rightly deserved. Yet the states who received all that lawsuit money do not easily provide smokers a way to quit smoking.
Do you think they just wanted the money? Nah.
Now the lawyers have McDonalds and the like on their radar. Because they are “worried” about the children. Soon enough the lawsuits will fly, the fast food outlets will pay and the politicos will collect their money that they may be re-elected.
As for Wal-Mart, well it too is a successful enterprise. Therefore it should pay more money, it should be forced to pay its employees a wage not foisted on any other business, it should be forced to pay full health benefits for its mostly part-time employees, again a restriction not placed on any other business.
Hey, it’s the success! Success is a bad thing. You get successful you must be punished, you must pay more taxes, you must be sued and your profits plundered for the success you’ve had.
Please don’t whisper about shopping somewhere else to the haters of business success. We are dumb Americans out here in la-la land and we don’t eat what’s good for us, we smoke despite all the evidence and we continue to shop at Wal-Mart despite the fact that the store’s cheap prices often mean lower wages for the workers.
Punishing success is a Moonbat’s job. Taking the money from successful enterprises is only right and fair. The American people are too stupid to know on what silliness they spend their money.
TODAY'S HISTORY LESSON
Below-in sweet Tookie’s own words:
'You should have heard the way he sounded when I shot him,' Williams bragged after killing Albert Owens. According to the district attorney's summary of the evidence, 'Williams then made gurgling or growling noises and laughed hysterically about Owens's death.'
Below-other thoughts on the Tookie matter:
"Incredibly, this thug is the object of the left's latest craze. For many anti-death penalty fundamentalists, it is not enough to oppose the execution of a savage killer -- the killer must be extolled as a noble soul whose death would be a loss for humanity. Thus Hollywood has honored Williams with a made-for-TV movie. The media have weighed in with sympathetic stories. A slew of celebrities, including such moral giants as Tom Hayden and Snoop Dogg, are clamoring for Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to grant clemency and spare Williams's life. And all but forgotten amid this orgy of adulation are the victims Williams so cruelly murdered nearly three decades ago."
- Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby
In the interest of fair and balanced, here’s a link to
Townhall.com’s Kathleen Parker’s treatise against the death penalty.
Our first principle should be never to kill an innocent person, and thus err on the side of life. As recompense for delaying the dark gratification of revenge, we liberate ourselves from involuntary servitude as audience to those for whom Death Row has become a stage.
Finally, killers such as Tookie Williams, condemned to life without parole, vanish into the hell of obscurity where they belong.
Howard Dean and Iraqi Women
Seems Mr. Dean, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Moonbat, has been proven wrong yet again.
It’s been a while since Dean uttered the ridiculous quote above. Goodness knows he’s said plenty since then. But this utterance hits home to me because on Friday, Dec. 2,2005 in this year of our Lord, I chanced to watch a Nightline show. Hosted by Terry Moran, a group of Iraqis were part of a “round table” discussion on how things are going in Iraq and what the future might bring.
I heard the Iraqi women, with mine own lying ears, state how hopeful they were for the future and how much better life was for them now with Saddam removed.
Oh dear. Could the lovely Howie of the foot in mouth disease, actually have been wrong?
And if he was wrong then, why should we believe a word the man ever says?
REALITY: Iraq’s new constitution mandates that women hold one-quarter of the seats in Iraq’s parliament and protects them against gender discrimination, unlike Saddam’s capricious legal system. Iraqi women now enjoy more political power than they did under Saddam’s dictatorship, which was run exclusively by men.
Saddam’s 1980 invasion of Iraq and 1990 invasion of Kuwait resulted in the deaths of so many men that women were brought into Iraq’s labor force to replace them. But this economic advancement came at a terrible price in repression. Entire Iraqi families were jailed as collective punishment for alleged crimes against the state. Saddam’s goons tortured, killed, and raped women to punish their husbands and male relatives for political opposition. Those who argue that Iraqi women were better off under Saddam ignore the terrible crimes against women that were carried out by his regime.
