20 Questions to a Better Personality

Wackiness: 18/100
Rationality: 20/100
Constructiveness: 30/100
Leadership: 20/100

You are an SEDF--Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.

Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well--even those you have known a long time--because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.

You are not to be messed with. You may explode.

Social Security for illegal immigrants

Yes it's true, The Social Insecurity Administration has signed this pile of dung. As if our social security nightmare isn't in bad enough shape, now we are going to provide benefits to those illegals who, I'm sure, will add nothing to the burden in the form of taxes.

Social Security for illegal immigrants

Congress still needs to approve it though, so call your Senators and Representatives let them know this is garbage.

When will we learn that we need to shut down the border to Mexico. Terrorists can easily gain access to our country through this wide open border. Nobody wants to face the fact that this will harm us if we let this continue. I don't support President Bush's stance on immigration. We need to find the people that are over here illegally and send them back. If they want to come to this country so badly do it legally. It's unfair to those waiting to enter legally to allow the lawbreakers to stay in this country and gain legal employment.

Lonewacko: Congressman: Terrorists are infiltrating the U.S. via Mexico

"Culberson is currently leading the fight in the House of Representatives to prevent the acceptance of the Matricula Consular card; the FBI says that card is inherently unsafe. The Matricula Consular card is only of use to illegal aliens, not to legal residents. Culberson's attempts are being opposed by the financial industry, pro-illegal immigration, and ethnic lobbies."

Holy Sunspots Batman

We may be experiencing technical difficulties over the next few days. These sun spots are absolutely huge.

Yes sunspots are more interesting than the DNC crapfest that happened last night. Is it just me or is Jimmy Carter Morphing into Jabba the Hut? I thought his eyes were going to bulge out of his sockets a few times. I think Al and Tipper Gore are exhibitionists. They seem to love to make-out in public. GET A ROOM!!!!

I was listening to a little of Michael Savage while I was doing some work around the house. His commentary while the CONvention was going on was quite humorous.

What exactly are the Libs voting for?

This article from the WSJ points out a number of interesting items. What are they really voting for? They don't really like Kerry, they just hate Bush.

Democrats gather in Boston this week with a spring in their step but not quite a song in their heart. They have good reason to believe they can win back the White House this November. But their anticipation is based less on their confidence in their agenda than on the intensity of their anger at President Bush. They are the Anybody--Anything--But Bush Democrats.

It further goes on to point out that they may win due to the intense anger they feel.

Anger has won more than one election in U.S. history, and--especially in this age of polarization--intensity and turnout matter.

How wrong it is to presume that just because you hate Bush that Kerry will be the better choice. Let's take a look at some of the ideas that John Kerry is trying to bring forward as brought to light in this article.

If any new Big Idea lurks, it is probably national health care, though even this dares not speak its name. Mr. Kerry's proposal amounts to a huge new taxpayer obligation ($653 billion over 10 years, by the Kerry camp's own reckoning), but it is disguised in large part as a federal subsidy for business in return for covering all employees.

What's a good way to stimulate the economy? Lets add $653 billion to the tax burden that we as Americans currently have to bear. (For your information click here for your state's Tax Freedom Day) That certainly won't kill the current boosts we've had. Of course all of that burden will be added to the evil rich who have earned all of their money due to hard work, oops I mean off the backs of poor minorities.


To his credit, Mr. Kerry has said he won't cut and run from Iraq, but he says precious little else other than that he'd somehow persuade the U.N. and France to help. Good luck with that. As a political matter, the betting seems to be that Democrats can get away with saying little because voters will simply blame Mr. Bush for any new terror attack or more trouble in Iraq. Look for Democrats to repeat the words "strong" or "strength" a few thousand times this week, a mantra in lieu of policy.

We don't need the French, or the UN. They have proven repeatedly how useless they are. I truly think the Liberals are hoping for another terrorist attack so that they can blame Bush for failing to protect us. I think that would backfire on Kerry as he has not shown any backbone on his plan for national security.

All of which shows that Mr. Kerry and his party aren't running on ideology. They have been running mainly on character and the Senator's biography as the anti-Bush. He won three purple hearts in Vietnam while Mr. Bush stayed home in the National Guard. He's smart and sees the nuances of issues that the uncurious and witless Mr. Bush doesn't. He'd get the Europeans to love us again, while Mr. Bush the cowboy cannot.

Perhaps the voters will find this reason enough to return Democrats to power. But we wonder. Successful challengers to incumbent Presidents are usually associated with some cause larger than themselves. Bill Clinton ran on the economy and health care in 1992, while Reaganism was the confluence of a generation of conservative ideas on economics, foreign policy and the culture. Is there a single idea, even one, that any voter could yet associate with a Kerry Presidency? This would be the week to let the country in on one.

John Kerry has no vision for what this great country can do. He is simply running on the hate Bush ticket. I hope that America wakes up and realizes that Kerry is not good for this country.

Baby Update

We had our first doctor's appointment yesterday.  The baby is between 10 and 11 weeks old now.  Our doctor was extremely pleased to see us, his face was beaming.  Unfortunately we got a better reaction from him than we did from my wife's parents, but oh well.  He was able to find the heart beat after listening for a while.  Nice and strong, about 160 beats per minute.  We think we're going to find out what it is, so we can be prepared this time.

We're so glad that we don't have the problems that this young lady and her husband are having.  I can't imagine the pain and anguish they are both feeling.

I hope and pray everyday that our pregnancy turns out OK, and I thank God for the blessings He has given us in our two healthy little boys.

Go Lance

Showing the class of the French.

Lance is the man

During Wednesday's time trial, Armstrong was booed, spat at and insulted, but shrugged off hostile sections of the crowd packing the road to win the stage - moving another step closer to cycling history.

Lance doesn't care.

"That motivates me more than anything," he said. "It certainly doesn't work against me. I'm not concerned about them."

Even though he's dating a commie, it's good to see an American beating the French on their home turf.

Thank you Philippines

Well duh!! Who didn't see this coming? The terrorists have seen what their threats can do to some countries, and are going to continue to take hostages. I hope for the sake of the war on terror, these countries don't capitulate.

I feel sorry for the families of these workers, and truly hope that these monsters don't go through with their evil plans.

No WMD's in Iraq?

This story is just starting to come out, but if it's true what a break for GWB. Not that I think he was unjustified in going after Saddam, but it makes it more justified if he actually had nukes he was hiding.

Nuclear arms reportedly found in Iraq - (United Press International)

They pointed out that the missiles were actually discovered in the trenches lying under six meters of concrete and designed in a way to unable sophisticated sensors from discovering nuclear radiation.
What else could be hiding in specially designed trenches?  Saddam could have buried anything he wanted to hide.  Maybe we won't find anything, but hopefully we will.

Ben Stein Article for E! online.

A follow up on the previous post. Here is an example of one of the great Hollywood Republicans. Ben has come to realize what a true hero is.

Real Stars

A real star, the kind who haunts my memory night and day, is the U.S. soldier in Baghdad who saw a little girl playing with a piece of unexploded ordnance on a street near where he was guarding a station. He pushed her aside and threw himself on it just as it exploded. He left a family desolate in California and a little girl alive in Baghdad.

You hit it right on the head Ben.

Hollywood Republicans

An interesting article from the Wall Street Journal.

Hollywood Republicans

"Where did the notion of compulsory leftist party registration in Hollywood come from, anyway? The first theory is that it's the aftereffect of the blacklisting era that has cast conservatives in the role of industry enemy, a tradition carried on by those not even conceived yet in the 1950s. The more likely answer is simple: Liberalism is akin to a long-running Hollywood fad. Personal accountability can be a foreign concept when you have a publicist to get you out of any jam. Taxes are easier to swallow when you bring in $10 million a film. Marxism sounds vaguely groovy and compassionate when you live in the Hollywood Hills, as opposed to under any of the regimes responsible for between 85 million and 100 million deaths in the last century. Celebs like to see it as a heightened global consciousness--excluding global realities like, say, terrorism--and make their scheduled appearances for the television cameras on Skid Row, dishing out turkey and green beans for the homeless."

It was interesting to see the list of those brave enough to come forward and state their party affiliation.

In addition to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tinseltown rebels include Bo Derek, Bruce Willis, Tom Selleck, Dennis Miller, Mel Gibson, Chuck Norris, Ben Stein, Pat Sajak, Kelsey Grammer, Danny Aiello, Patricia Heaton and James Woods. "I love George Bush right now and I always have," Mr. Woods told Jay Leno in 2001. "I'm the only guy in L.A. who voted for him."

Let's hope that more and more people will step up to the plate and declare their independence from the left leaning Hollywood base.

My Eyes are Bleeding

This is absolute crap in the worst way.  I found this article on a number of blogs (too many to list).  This is the ultimate in irresponsibility.
This story sickens me to no end. (a login is required, but it's worth it.)
Talk about the ultimate in selfishness.  This woman does not deserve the child she had been blessed with. 
I have one thing to say to Pete (the woman's boyfriend).
You are worse than she.  You look at those beating hearts and knowingly let two of them be snuffed out.  How can you call yourself a man and not stand up for the lives of those two indefensible little children?  I hope the beating of those two little hearts haunts you till the day you die!!!  Somehow though I don't think they will.
Thanks to Peppermint Patty for the first heads up.

What a Joke.

Israel Challenged to Tear Down Wall

This is complete nonsense. Israel is trying to protect itself from terrorists, and the International Court is telling it to take down the wall, and pay reparations against those who have been harmed. I have an idea. How about the Palestinians pay Israel for protecting their youth from their own stupidity. That's simply what it is when you decide to blow up yourself and a few dozen innocent bystanders.

Oh baby, baby, baby, baby

That's right libs tremble in fear. A new member of the VRWC is due early next February. Just trying to do my part in saving the world from the looney left. Now if Brian over at would get on the ball and catch up we'd have another addition to the conspiracy. Let's go Brian.

We're still debating if we want to find out if it's a boy or a girl. We really want a girl, and as my wife puts it... "If it comes out with a penis I want to know about it ahead of time." We're thinking of telling the Ultrasound Tech to tell us if it's a boy, but if it's a girl or if they can't really make it out to tell us they can't tell. I like the idea of being surprised, penis or not, but my wife wants to be ready for the idea of having another boy (we have two boys already).

What are your thoughts on the subject of finding out?
