"Unionism seldom, if ever, uses such power as it has to insure better work; almost always it devotes a large part of that power to safeguarding bad work."

Men versus Women: Some Important Distinctions

1. NAMES: If Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara go out for
lunch, they will call each other Laurie, Linda, Elizabeth and Barbara.
If Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom go out, they will affectionately
refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla, Peanut-Head and Scrappy.

2. EATING OUT: When the bill arrives, Mark, Chris, Eric and Tom
will each throw in a $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them
will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want the
change back. When the women get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

3. MONEY: A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

4. BATHROOMS: A man has five items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, shaving
cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Marriott. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.

5. ARGUMENTS: A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

6. CATS: Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

7. FUTURE: A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

8. SUCCESS: A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can
spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

9. MARRIAGE: A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.

10. DRESSING UP: A woman will dress up to go shopping, to water the plants,
empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, and read the mail. A man
will dress up for weddings and funerals.

11. NATURAL: Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

12. OFFSPRING: Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows
about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

13. FINAL THOUGHT: Any married man should forget his mistakes. There's no
use in two people remembering the same thing.

Geno's Steaks and the "English Only" Controversy

I heard Joey Vento recently on the Laura Ingraham show. The man is quite the talker. He does not, he assured the audience, refuse to serve those customers who do not speak English. He DOES make a practice of doing the best he can with a misunderstood order should the customer not be able to make his/her request with linguistic clarity.

His sign warning customers to speak English has caused quite an uproar across the politically correct crowd and goodness the Compassion Police are really up in arms. Now Philadelphia's Human Relations department has filed a complaint.

Joey Vento vowed he will NOT take the sign down. Should be interesting if the Human Rights Compassion Police have to come out there and remove the sign. I will be watching from a front row seat.
Politically Incorrect Cheese-steaks

Joey Vento, owner of Geno's Steaks in Philadelphia, is in big trouble over a little sign. Six months ago, Vento posted a sign at his restaurant that reads, "This is AMERICA ... WHEN ORDERING SPEAK ENGLISH."

On Monday, he was served with a complaint from the city's Commission on Human Relations informing him that he is violating two of the city's anti-discrimination laws. Vento is unapologetic, but the city is not backing down either. One councilman opposed to the sign said, "I just think it's mean-spirited and divisive, and it's not good for the city's image."

Geno's SteaksBut when it comes to tolerance, the "city of brotherly love" has demonstrated extreme prejudice toward men and women of faith. In 2004, 11 Christians were arrested for attempting to protest a "gay pride" event in Philadelphia. For exercising their First Amendment rights, these Christians were charged with "hate crimes." Those charges were later dropped, and a conspiracy case is currently pending against the city police and the homosexual rights group that sponsored the event. My friends, this is where the slippery slope of the liberal agenda leads - English becomes "divisive" and Christians lose their rights.

Meanwhile Saddam's Trial Continues

We hear one of Saddam's lawyers has been killed.

I think he'll be found guilty.

The prosecution in the trial of Saddam Hissein began giving its closing arguments Monday, launching the final phase of the eight-month-old trial against the former leader and seven ex-members of his regime for crimes against humanity.

The defense is scheduled to start its final arguments on July 10. The five-judge panel will then recess the court to consider its verdicts.

Haditha "Human Rights" Worker a Poet and Didn't Know It

The famed Hammurabi Organization, the so-called human rights organization that arranged, oops, documented an alleged massacre at Haditha, is headed by the "freelance journalist" who photographed the carefully arranged morgue picture. Turns out Abdul-Rahman Al-Mashhadani is Hammurabi's ONLY member and is also the group's "secretary general".


Now we discover that ole Abdul is also quite the poet. Remember, this is the guy, or at least his "human rights" group, who wants to charge our Marines with mass murder. Below, some of Abdul's poetry.

From Sweetness and
Followers of the Haditha news will recognize the name Abdul-Rahman Al-Mashhadani as the "Chairman" of the newly formed Hammurabi Organization for Human Rights and Democracy Monitoring.

("Budding journalist" Thaer al-Hadithi, 43, is Hammurabi's founder and only other member. He serves as its "Secretary-General.")...

First Gentleman Bill Clinton Will Do "Whatever Hillary Wants"

Hill & Bill-in loveWhat's even more amazing is the LA Times article itself. Quoted below is pretty much the entire context of the write-up in the Left Coast Times. Filed under "Politics-National" in the vaunted newspaper.

Goodness, Zarqawi was killed, immigration reform cries can be heard, the Senate is debating Iraq resolutions and the LA Times gives this silly story a headline stature.

Because Bill Clinton, giving a speech where he likely made hundreds of thousands of dollars, proclaimed than when wife Hillary is President, he will do "whatever she wants".

We're quite sure you will, Bill. You've done whatever the woman wanted during your entire presidency we're sure you will toe the line when SHE's the president in more than first lady status only.

Hang in there folks. Hill and Bill will be coming to a White House near you soon.

And Bill will do whatever Hillary wants.

From the LA Times:
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas -- Former President Bill Clinton says if his wife becomes president in 2008, his role would be to quote "do whatever she wants" because that's what a good citizen would do.

Asked what his role would be if his wife became president, Clinton said, quote, "I'll do whatever she wants, and I have no idea what that is."

Capitol Police Want House Ethics Committee to Investigate McKinney

Here's the deal. The Capitol police exist to protect the cherished political class and we've figured this out here in la-la land. If the Capitol police think the House ethics committee is going to do anything to McKinney they are kidding themselves. The House ethics committee hasn't met in ages because the House doesn't want to deal with such as ethics. Heh.

A Grand Jury did not indict Rep. Cynthia McKinney for hitting a Capitol police officer with her cell phone when she went through a security checkpoint without responding to his call to stop.

We are reminded of Patrick Kennedy who rode around D.C. on the wrong side of the road and slammed into a road barrier. The Capitol police immediately came on the scene to throw that drunk driver into jail lest he kill a citizen instead of damaging a cement wait! That's not what happened. The Capitol police immediately drove the drunk home with no bother of breathalyzers or such. Same thing the local police would do for thou and I should we be driving drunk upon public streets...NOT!

NOW the Capitol police want justice? We heard, but don't believe it, that the Capitol police tucked Kennedy into bed after his drunken foray.

We know the job of the Capitol police out here in la-la land. Don't go boo-hooing when grand juries merely follow the example the Capitol police have set.

Police labor officials, angry over a federal grand jury's refusal to indict Rep. Cynthia McKinney for assaulting a police officer, said Monday said they want the House ethics committee to review her conduct.

And they said the grand jury's decision last week sent the message that "it's okay to hit a police officer."

"We hope that members of Congress will review her actions in light of their rules within their own ethics committee," Andrew Maybo, chairman of the U.S. Capitol Police Labor Committee, told reporters Monday at a news conference in Washington.

The Condi/Dubya Affair

We think George Dubya deserves an affair rumor. Way I figger, the liberals might hate the man a little less with some good sex speculation flying through the air.

This rumor about Dubya and Condoleeza Rice is one such rumor that was just begging for release to the scuttlebutt pile. Now we are to understand First Lady Laura has moved into a D.C. hotel because of the affair.

If I were a single woman and if I were to bump into a George Dubya lookalike in my travels, I would most certainly find him a very handsome fellow. He is at exactly my age and he seems clean and neat. Heh.

But I cannot imagine Dubya in a sexual situation at all much less an extra-marital affair.

Still, the left loves Clinton of Monica fame. So in the interest of boosting Dubya's sagging ratings, we shall pass on this admittedly stale rumor.

Just to keep it going and all for the love of the country.

By the way, Tony Blair is really my guy. That guy could talk to me with his British accent all day and I'd be enraptured. But that's just me.

From the Wonkette:
Rocky shoals for Bush marriage? Informed sources Inside the Beltway report that First Lady Laura Bush has established temporary residence in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC as a result of a tiff with President Bush over an extramarital relationship involving her husband. Mr. Bush's tryst is said to involve Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. It is not known how long Mrs. Bush plans to remain at the Mayflower, however, her security detail has been present at the hotel during hours when the First Lady would normally be residing in the White House.


We know Jack Murtha is nuts. Here's a congress critter teetering on the edge of senility, soon to descend into outright dementia. He represents a district so gerrymandered and used to the pork Murtha brings back home that he'll likely not get voted out of office.

But come on...Okinawa?

First, Murtha's constant suggestion that we redeploy our troops to another country out of Iraq makes no sense. The U.S.A. invaded Iraq and drove out the lovely Saddam. Saddam was not only a barbaric dictator, he was a nuisance and danger to the rest of the world. We OCCUPY Iraq, essentially.

So how does one occupy a country from other countries?

But of all the asinine and stupid comments, the Okinawa option has to be the silliest. Surely Murtha does not think we are all that stupid?

Okinawa is nowhere near Iraq!

I'm just beyond commentary. If anyone buys into this Okinawa thing than they are too stupid to be reasoned with.

From "Meet the Press"-June 18, 2006:

MR. ROVE: Congressman Murtha said, "Let's redeploy them immediately to another country in the Middle East. Let's get out of Iraq and go to another country." My question is, what country would take us? What country would say after the United States cut and run from Iraq, what country in the Middle East would say, "Yeah. Paint a big target on our back and then you'll cut and run on us." What country would say that? What country would accept our troops?

(End videotape)

MR. RUSSERT: What's your response?

REP. MURTHA: There's many countries understand the importance of stability in the Middle East. This is an international problem. We, we use 20 million barrels of oil a day. China's the second largest user. All these countries understand you need stability for the energy supply that's available in the Middle East. So there's many, many countries.


REP. MURTHA: Kuwait's one that will take us. Qatar, we already have bases in Qatar. So Bahrain. All those countries are willing to take the United States. Now, Saudi Arabia won't because they wanted us out of there in the first place. So-and we don't have to be right there. We can go to Okinawa. We, we don't have-we can redeploy there almost instantly. So that's not-that's, that's a fallacy. That, that's just a statement to rial up people to support a failed policy wrapped in illusion.

MR. RUSSERT: But it'd be tough to have a timely response from Okinawa.

REP. MURTHA: Well, it-you know, they-when I say Okinawa, I, I'm saying troops in Okinawa. When I say a timely response, you know, our fighters can fly from Okinawa very quickly. And-and-when they don't know we're coming. There's no question about it. And, and where those airplanes won't-came from I can't tell you, but, but I'll tell you one thing, it doesn't take very long for them to get in with cruise missiles or with, with fighter aircraft or, or attack aircraft, it doesn't take any time at all. So we, we have done-this one particular operation, to say that that couldn't have done, done-it was done from the outside, for heaven's sakes.
