It's already late

but I said I'd give you something to think about
so anyway, yesterday I mentioned Jill Carroll, the Christian Science Monitor's free-lancer working in Iraq, who was kidnapped by terrorists.  I have a theory.....
Compare and contrast the last two video tapes that have been released, 30 Jan 06 and 09 Feb 06.  (My apologies, I'm dealing with exceptionally bad dial-up tonight, you'll have to AltaVista your own linkage.)
On 30 January, she's seen sobbing, barely able to speak.  Frightened.  Scared to death.
In the 09 February video, she's composed, almost confident.  Sitting there like she's the host of Good Morning, Infidels.  And wearing the "traditional" head-dress.  There's no fear in her voice or her bearing.
After hearing the audio of the 09 February video tape on the radio, I had something nagging at the corner of my mind.  Later, after seeing the video, the very first thought that bobbed to the surface of my mind was: Patty Hearst. 
Sure, call me crazy.  You wouldn't be the first, or the last.
I'm old enough to vividly remember the Hearst kidnapping and her subsequent conversion to the ways of the SLA (give me a break, can you spell Symbianese off the top our your head?  I know I can't).  I haven't followed the Carroll story close enough to dig into the parallels (or lack thereof) with the Hearst story; just a "gut-feel" about the whole sorid mess.
An idealistic "journalist" from the Íàðîäû Republik AnnArbor (Peoples Republic of AnnArbor, aka Moscow on the Huron) free-lances for the left-leaning Christian Science Monitor, gets taken hostage by the terrorist whose only demands are to "release all the women held by the coalition forces ".
Am I the only one having a serious WTF? moment here?
Like I said, just a theory.
Elsewhere, Mark Steyn's piece in The Austrailian (it's already tomorrow there already) on demographics is spot on.
I repeat my long-standing offer to Mr.Steyn:  if you ever find yourself in SE Michigan, I'll buy you not one, but two 40 oz. quarts of your favorite beer and all the White Castles you can eat.

Emergency Back Up Post

h/t to Blogger for losing it the first time

So anyway, it got late early again, so just a couple of quickies then you kids are off to bed. It's a school night, after all.

Remember the other day, when I was mumbling something about Saddam's WMDs and you all thought I was crazy? Ahem. Maybe I'm not so crazy after all. Ace has the scoop. All the kids are on about it, Jeff Goldstein goes on at length over at Protien Wisdom. As only Jeff could say:
Good stuff, that.

It's starting to look like it's really going to suck to be a leftard from here on out.

What? Cheney shot someone? A lawyer? Nothing to see here, move along. It's not like he went to Saudi Arabia and pulled an algore.

Oh, and remind me to post something about that CSM "journalist" that's being held hostage in Iraq. We've seen this thing before, but that's another story for another time.

I just know Blogger is going to crap out tonight. (Note: It Did) This whole terrorist
internet attack crap is really funking with my internet mojo. More soon (after Blogger loses this post)

Friday Night Lite

post title recycling will continue until further notice

So anyway, I was all set to blog up a storm tonight, but working on the fooking taxes has knocked the wind out of my sails.

Plus, one of the cable channels is running the sci-fi classic 2001 so I'm just a bit distracted. For the eleventy-seventh thousand time.....

Just what do you think you're doing, Dave?

More soon

"What is the leftards actions at the C.S.King funeral, Alex?"

There was a time when there was a standard of decency and decorum. I think we shall never see that time again.
What little I've seen of the coverage of Coretta Scott King's funeral today has left me sickened.
Jebeezus, who was that wanker eulogizing Mrs.King by going off about the WMD situation? I was thinking "Geez, billy jeff is there, he must be feeling pretty bad about lying about Saddam's WMDs for all those years". Of course, the leftards have never Googled the string "Clinton+Iraq+1998" so this whole WMD "lie" is GWB's fault.
Or not. In the past couple of weeks there has been some information about Iraq's WMD program brought to light. Iraqi Air Force Generals talking about secret flights into Syria. Audio recordings of Saddam talking about WMDs (h/t to Ace). Clearly, the fat lady isn't even tuning up yet.
Sigh. More soon.

Corrective Update

my bad

what I meant to say is "I'm going to the casino, eh".

02 February 2006

As Senator Blutarski would say

Holy Siht!

So anyway, it seems that I'm not the only one thinking along such lines. Via Tim at Four Right Wing Wackos, this sobered me up in a hurry. If you think our borders are not that secure, you should look at canadia, jebeezus christo, they'll let anyone in. All you have to say to the canadian border official is "I'm going to the casino" and they wave you right in.
I've been wary of every "big event" since That Day back in September 2001; but this one (Super Bowl XL @ Ford Field in Detroit {Rock City}) really gives me the heebee geebees (sp? you look it up and let me know). Have you been to Dearborn, suburb of Detroit (Rock City)? I used to work there; there are blocks and blocks of streets where the signage is in Arabic exclusively.
After That Day back in September 2001, I rationalized that Detroit (Rock City) and SE Michigan in general, would be spared from terrorist attack due to the large number of Arab peoples in the area. I've been re-thinking that logic for a couple of weeks now, but haven't piped up to date. The time is now. The Super Bowl city is announced something like five years in advance (generalization on my part, but there's a long lead time for the game in any particular city). Do the math.
doG, I'm starting to sound like a Kos-sack conspiracy theorist. Lemme sleep and think (not necessarily in that order) and I'll get back to you manana.
