John Kerry didn't support the U.S. Military in 1971.
And John Kerry doesn't support the U.S. Military today.
This is the face of today's Democratic party. They will cut military funding and hang our troops out to dry because they don't support our troops. They don't respect the men and women who are fighting the terrorists on our behalf.
The liberals don't want America to win the global war on terror.
The stakes are too high to let the liberals take charge of national security.

THE A.C.O.R.N. DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE.
Voter registration fraud is being perpetrated in St. Louis and Kansas City by a liberal group known as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (A.C.O.R.N.) and chances are you haven't heard about it because it's not being widely reported.
Newsbusters has the links here .
The liberals don't play fair and square.
No surprise there.
One more reason to vote Republican.

Remember the theme song for the movie "Jaws" and those ominious notes that put the fear of sharks and the water into so many of us?
TA DUM, TA DUM, TA DUM, TA DUM...
Well, out of the AP comes news that Tommy Johnson, whose tuba "put the shark teeth" into the Jaws theme song died on Octber 16, at the age of 71.
Johnson, a veteran studio musician, played on thousands of movie scores over nearly 50 years, including "The Godfather," "Titanic," and the Star Trek series.

From Examiner.com comes Muslims Mobilize For November Vote .
According to Mukit Hossain, president of the Virginia Muslim Political Action Committee, his group is working to mobilize voters to get out and vote Democratic.
You need to ask yourself why are moslems mobilizing to vote Democratic...
And you need to ask yourself why anybody would vote Democratic...
Just one more reason to vote Republican.
Twin spacecraft, known as STEREO, for Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory, blasted off Wednesday night on a mission to study huge eruptions from the sun that can damage satellites and disrupt electrical and communications systems on Earth.
Good thing NASA is planning a night landing too. ;-)

In the strange bird behavior department comes this story about a pelican struggling with a frantic pigeon in its beak for more than 20 minutes before swallowing it whole.
The moment was caught on camera by photographer Cathal McNaughton, who was taking pictures of the wildlife in St James's Park.
Not surprising if you remember the old poem...
A wonderful bird is the Pelican,
His bill can hold more than his belican
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week;
But I'm damned if I see how the helican.
-- Dixon Lanier Merritt -- (but often incorrectly attributed to Ogden Nash)

Actress Jane Wyatt, best remembered as Margaret Anderson, the mother on the
television series "Father Knows Best," died Friday in her sleep of natural causes at age 96.
As a Trek fan, I'll always remember her as Amanda, wife of Sarek, and mother of Spock. Coincidentally, Mark Lenard, who played Sarek, died on November 22, 1996, almost ten years ago to the day.

For this Cat Blog Friday...
... Copy Cat, or CC for short... a cat clone.
Genetic Savings and Clone, the company in the business of creating clones of beloved pets is closing its doors .
It seems like there isn't much demand for cloned cats at $50,000 a pop.
Happy Friday, everybody!

From the freak accident department... this story about a Lighthouse Point, Florida man in critical condition one day after authorities say a stingray jumped onto his boat and stabbed him in the chest, leaving a foot-long barb stuck in him.
Can you imagine how scary it would be to have a five-foot wide, 30 lb. stingray jumping into your boat?
Yikes, more fun from Florida's freakish creatures.

Jimmy Carter is blathering again. Now he's blaming President Bush for the North Korea nuclear crisis here . Just more of the same piffle he doesn't have the class to keep to himself.
You know, I lived through Carter's miserable presidency, and, as far as I'm concerned, the only smart thing he ever did was having the foresight to legalize
home brewing on October 14, 1978.

My sister emailed this to me yesterday with instructions to pass it on. So I'm passing it on to all of you...
A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jellyjar
from its hiding place in the closet...
She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully.
Three times, even. The total had to be exactly perfect. No
chance here for mistakes.
Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting
on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6
blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief
sign above the door.
She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some
attention but he was too busy at this moment. Tess twisted her
feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her throat
with the most disgusting sound
she could muster. No good.. Finally she took a quarter from
her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it!
And what do you want?" the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone
of voice. I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't
seen in ages," he said without waiting for a reply to his
Well, I want to talk to you about my brother," Tess answered
back in the same annoyed tone. "He's really, really sick...and
I want to buy a miracle."
“I beg your pardon?" said the pharmacist. " His name is Andrew
and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy
says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a miracle
We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I
can't help you," the pharmacist said, softening a little.
"Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I
will get the rest. Just tell me how much it costs."
The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man. He stooped
down and asked the little girl, "What kind of a miracle does
your brother need?"
" I don't know," Tess replied with her eyes welling
up. I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an
operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money."
" How much do you have?" asked the man from Chicago.
"One dollar and eleven cents," Tess answered barely audibly.
"And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I
"Well, what a coincidence," smiled the man. "A dollar and
Eleven cents---the exact price of a miracle for little brothers. "
He took her money in
one hand and with the other
hand he grasped her mitten and said
“Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and
your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you need."
That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon,
specializing in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed
free of charge and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and
Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events
That had led them to this place.
That surgery," her Mom whispered. "was a real miracle. I
wonder how much it would have cost?"
Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle cost...one
dollar and eleven cents .... plus the faith of a little child.
In our lives, we never know how many miracles we will need..
A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the
operation of a higher law.. I know you'll keep the ball moving!
Here it goes. Throw it back to someone who means something
A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end. It keeps us together
like our Circle of Friends. But the treasure inside for you to
see is the treasure of friendship you've granted to me.
Today I pass the friendship ball to you.
Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you.
MY OATH TO YOU...
When you are sad.....I will dry your tears.
When you are scared.....I will comfort your fears.
When you are worried.....I will give you hope.
When you are confused....I will help you cope.
And when you are lost...And can't see the light, I shall be your
beacon.....Shining ever so bright.
This is my oath.....I pledge till the end.
Why you may ask?.....Because you're my friend.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS LETTER, YOU ARE REQUESTED TO
SEND IT TO AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE PERSON WHO SENT IT
Signs that Hillary's spin machine is running at warp speed...
When did a cross become part of her daily wear? Read about it here .
Hasn't it always been thus? ;-)
Her campaign staff finally admitted that she was not named for Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to climb Mt. Everest, but provided an innocent explanation of how the story got it's start here .
Such an uplifting lie, I mean story. ;-)

A model wears the newest gadget, from electronics manufacturer Toshiba, that enables the wearer to experience a full 360-degree view on a 40 centimetre dome-shaped screen.
How does she keep from snapping her neck in two?
One word, Toshiba... miniaturization.

From Yahoo News a Michigan man with the above license plate has received a letter Friday from Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services notifying him that he must change the plates on his 1991 Mazda Miata.
Among some members of the military and computer users, FOAD stands for "(expletive deleted) off and die, " however, Ron Gabrielsen said the acronym stands for "freedom offers America democracy."
Yeah, and this one stands for "ersatz stalagtites arouse displeasure."
In case you tried to view the controversial spoof of Clinton's failed Korea policy by filmmaker David Zucker, but were unable to get past YouTube's "flagging" process, you can see it here .
WorldNetDaily discusses the limiting of access to the video by YouTube at YouTube Blocked Video Mocking Clinton Administration:
Limits Imposed On Access To Clip Critical Of Albright-run North Korea Policy .
According to YouTube, "This video may contain content that is inappropriate for some users. To view this video, please verify you are 18 or older by logging in or signing up." Today the verification page on the spoof was removed.
Gosh, what happened to their sense of humor?

I have a terrific memory for most things, but, for some reason, I'm not so good at remembering dates. It's so bad that I forgot to note The BLOG's second anniversary on 10-04-06.
If you have been visiting The BLOG long enough, you'd know I forgot it last year too.
Sheesh, I wonder if there's any intelligent life in this cubicle :-(
A model presents a creation for French fashion house Guy Laroche as part of their Spring/Summer 2007 ready-to-wear fashion collection in Paris.
Will someone please bring this poor girl a sandwich! She looks seriously skeletal.
While I'm on the subject of fashion victims...

In his column entitled
Frivolous Politics , Thomas Sowell provides excellent insight into the differences between looking at the grim issues that face our country with a frivolous outlook (liberals and the biased media) or with a serious outlook (conservatives).
Sowell warns, "You may deserve whatever you get if you vote frivolously in this year's election. But surely the next generation, which has no vote, deserves better."

Journalists who speak out against Russian President Vladimir Putin don't live long lives. The latest one is Anna Politkovskaya Outspoken Putin critic shot dead in Moscow .
By contrast, here in America, journalists are entitled to say unspeakable things about our President, and they can lie not just by omission, but through the use of "fake but accurate" documents, all in a deliberate attempt to sway the voting public.
Just when did freedom of speech become a license to lie?
Stymie the MSM...

For this Cat Blog Friday...
... a smiling cat in celebration of World Smile Day®. As ever the theme for the day is "Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile." And, as ever, the image that leads the way on this day is the smiley face.
Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet.
So, smile everybody, and happy Friday!

Man Recites Pi To 100,000 Places .
Akira Haraguchi, 60, a Japanese mental health counselor, needed more than 16 hours to recite the number to 100,000 decimal places, breaking his personal best of 83,431 digits set in 1995.
A mental health counselor?
I love Pi. I love reading Pi facts, but even I think this takes the cake.
More capitulation to the moslems... this time in Spain and it's celebration of the "Reconquista", the 1492 overthrow of 700 years of moslem rule by Chrisitans.
Spaniards tone down exploding Mohammed at fiestas .
One line in the article gave me some hope that not all hope is lost in Bocairent, "The village may not have blown up the wood-and-cardboard Mohammed dummy this year -- but it still threw it off a castle wall at the fiesta's climax in February."
[The BLOG note: hat tip to Little Green Footballs" ]
For one glimpse into the difference between how Democratics and Republicans treat their child abusers, see Debbie Schlussel's excellent post about liberal democratic Congressman Mel Reynolds Worse Than Mark Foley: Pardoned By Clinton .
Reynold's case was a problem for the courts. Foley's case is the crash and burn, apocalyptic end of the Republican party?
Sheesh, talk about hypocrisy.

If you only read one article about the Rep. Mark Foley affair, it really should be Clarice Feldman's Investigate This at The American Thinker.
Feldman's article is an excellent read. First, she outlines the "peculiar and suspicious genesis of the Foley matter" with the fake but accurate blog.
Then she highlights the history of leniency towards wayward Democrats versus the public flogging received by wayward Republicans.
In short, this article exposes the concerted effort by the MSM to turn this scandal into a reason to vote Democrat in Novemember.
Kudos to Clarice on this one.
