Bill's short memory

Not to get into a debate over Global Warming, as it’s not pertinent to this post, per se, but Clinton was recently out giving a speech, that can only be taken as stumping for Gore, in which he laid the blame of Global Warming strengthened sever weather squarely on the shoulders of George W. Bush.

As Tropical Storm Alberto threatened to strengthen into the ninth hurricane in 22 months to affect Florida, former President Clinton predicted Monday that Republican environmental policies will lead to more severe storms.

So since scaring us with threats that the GOP is out to starve women and children, deny the elderly healthcare, take back the vote from women and put blacks back in the field has yet to yield the big Democrat victory it’s time to ramp things up. Now the GOP will destroy the entire planet. Only I’m not sure if that’s before or after they replace the US government with a bible-belt theocracy. Am I being dismissive enough?

But! Then Clinton goes on to say:

"It is now generally recognized that while Al Gore and I were ridiculed, we were right about global warming,"

WTF? When were you ever out campaigning for Global Warming, Bill? Was it when you were fighting to get congress to pass the Kyoto treaty? Oh wait just one second Bill, you never even sent the treaty to Congress for ratification, nor did you sign it so while you contemplate about how no one was listening to you, ponder for just a second that maybe it was because you weren’t saying anything.

Of course he’s hoping no one remember any of that, and so far the press has forgotten.

Taliban v2.0

Today I saw a fellow walking down my street with a shirt that had a picture of Bush with the words, “The Real Terrorist”. Interesting, but I would say the Islamists are more of a threat to the world than Bush. And a perfect example are the new Taliban, the Joint Islamic Courts (JIC), that have risen up in the former country of Somalia.

The gunmen loyal to the Joint Islamic Courts (JIC), cut electricity, cleared cinema halls and warned residents against watching the football tournament in
areas they control, forcing a violent protest late on Saturday in which two
people were killed, residents said Sunday.

Killing people for watching the World Cup? And it’s Bush my neighbor is worried about.

War produces first fruit

From the Jerusalem Post:

…after apparently realizing they were holding a US citizen, the captors handeld Bright-Fishbein over to the PA Preventive Security Service which then
transferred him to the IDF at the Hawara Checkpoint.

This guy is a 'tard.

After decades of concessions and appeasement from the West it has taken 5 years of bloody (though not bloody enough) war to finally begin to reverse the contempt the Islamists hold for our lives. Fear of kidnapping an American is a start. A good one.
