The morons on the left scream constantly that we have lost our civil rights under the current administration but can never actually point to one civil right they have lost, while a man in New York puts a koran or two into the toilet and is charged with criminal mischief and aggravated harassment.
Who did he harass? How is criminal mischief a felony? Did the toilet back up and need a plumber to repair it? If so then vandalism would be in order, but if not who did he hurt by his actions?
Oh...some muslims got their feelings hurt? I remember "Piss Christ." So it's ok to denigrate Christianity but not islam? Maybe that's because Christians aren't going around cutting off the heads of non-believers.
It boils down to this. This man didn't steal this koran from someone and toss it in the toilet (as far as we know right now) and since it (seemingly) was his private property he can toss it into a sewage pond for all anyone should care. The fact that the muslim student union and CAIR (allegedly) ARE PUSHING FOR THIS PROSECUTION should scafe the hell out of American citizens.
UPDATE: Apparently the koran was stolen. So nail him for theft and the value of the book. BUt a felony? Come on and have some common sense.
When prosecutors are guided by partisan groups with agendas, instead of the letter of the law, we head down a dark road, one better left untraveled. We are losing our free speech rights in this country, and pretty soon prosecutions for simply stating opinions will be more commonplace.
So there is a very real possibility that I may end up in jail in the near future.
Now if you will excuse me I need to go buy a new koran and clean my toilets.
So let's do this.

I just got this email from a dear friend of mine:
I am writing this to ask you all for your help. The help is not for me,it’s for a friend of mine. She is one of the kindest and gentlest souls I have ever known. And she has been given some very hard news.
She has stage 4 cancer and has been given 6 months to live.
Last month she collapsed suddenly and was rushed to a nearby hospital where it was discovered that a tumor covered a third of her brain. Emergency surgery was performed, and while a good portion of it was removed, the docters are 99% sure that it will grow back. She has spent the last month re-learning how to talk and walk only to be given the full truth of her situation once adequately recovered.
She is now in the process of change. She is letting go of all of the things that have not served her in the past that she no longer has the time or energy for. She is looking forward to all of the things she’s ever wanted to do in her life. She is not giving up and is holding on to that 1% left to her.
Her name is Beth and I ask that you add her to your prayers.
Now for the big help. Beth has always wanted to see the Northern Lights. I am putting together a collection to help her go. A friend of hers has a cabin in Canada where there is a good view of them in August. She just needs travel and food money.
In a time in most peoples lives when most people are enjoying relatively decent health and energy and the prospect of watching ones family grow up Beth has been thrown the most horrid of curve balls. Knowing that your days are short will certainly put everything into perspective.
If you can help, even if it is just for a dollar, please hit the paypal button and stick something about Beth in the title line....from Beth, her family and friends, thank you in advance....the donation button is in the left hand column near the top.
I will keep you updated.
I bet I finish them all in the next five years....that is the goal anyway.

Daily Pos goes far beyond any other blog out there, staging a konvention that actively seeks politicians to appear and endorsing candidates, and that is pretty much all they do.
They are a completely political entity.
They FEC should rip them a new one and demand accounting from that traitorous, limp wristed rat Pos.....
What say you?
Claudia Alta Taylor Johnson (December 22, 1912 – July 11, 2007) was the wife of former President of the United States Lyndon B. Johnson, and was First Lady of the United States from 1963-1969. From infancy she has been known as Lady Bird.
As First Lady, Johnson started a capital beautification project (Society for a More Beautiful National Capital) to improve physical conditions in Washington, D.C., both for residents and tourists. Her efforts inspired similar programs throughout the country. She was also instrumental in promoting the Highway Beautification Act, which sought to beautify the nation's highway system by limiting billboards and by planting roadside areas.
I have always admired her simply for the fact that she pushed limiting billboards at the side of highways. She feared, (rightfully) that eventually the roads would be lined with billboards and the great views of this wonderful country would be spoiled.
Godspeed Lady Bird. Rest In Peace.
“Live Earth doesn’t have a final goal,"..."Everybody’s known about that problem for years. We are all f***ing conscious of global warming,”
Roger Daltry chimed in with:
The last thing the world needs is a rock concert’
Most likely thinking of all the private jets that shuttled around all of these self serving bastards.
And Matt Helders, the drummer for Artic Monkeys added that it would be:
“a bit patronizing” to think his youthful group could change the world. “Especially when we’re using enough power for 10 houses just for lighting, it would be a bit hypocritical,”
Given recent findings that Greenland once was very green, recently in fact by geologic standards, coupled with the slew of scientists that do not believe in global warming being caused by humans one has to wonder if these morons are reading the same internet.
Now add in the fact that Algore owns a chunk of the biggest carbon credit company out there (BTW, carbon credits are simply a self imposed guilt tax) and that he basically pays himself for his carbon offsets and something really stinks in here, and it isn't the smell of millions of unwashed environutjobs panting breathlessly about how much they save the environment by showering only once every lunar cycle with dew they collect off of the carbon reducing trees they live under next to the overpass.
I think my favorite line of the day was spoken by David Gray, who likened the campaign to save the planet to the threat Britain faced from the Nazis.
No, the campaign to "save the planet" is not a threat like the nazis were. Eventually you idiots out there with your little florescent lights (which I hate because they won't work with a dimmer switch) and all of your recycling (for the record recycling hurts the poor and doesn't pay enough for me to do it) and "green" sensibilities are going to wake up and realize that you are serious fools.
Then instead of greenies we can call you red faced idiots. Seems most of the stuff that the global warming crowd wants to do sounds like old soviet style rules anyway, forcing me to live my life a certain way and taking away my freedom, so red is a better color for you numbnutted twits anyway.
So I will tell you what I am gonna do about global warming:
I will contribute.
That's right, I will contribute to global warming.
I will leave my computer and every 500 watt light bulb on all the damn time.
In fact I have five computers here, and I am gonna make sure they all stay on all the time.
I will continue to not recycle.
I will go out and get a car that guzzles even more gas, and I will alter the exhaust system so I get the maximum amount of EPM (Emissions Per Mile)
I will use as much food that comes pre-packaged and processed as possible. In fact the more packaging the better. I want my food wrapped in a vacuum form container inside of a box that uses no recycled material and I want that box wrapped in shrink wrap plastic, two layers, with tamper proof tape on it that has lead based writing telling me that the tape is there to keep me safe from wackjobs that would poison me, and after this missive I am sure the number of those guys will shoot up some.
I am going to cook over an open fire whenever possible, and if I can, I will try to use wood that has been sprayed with pesticides just so I can release that much more stuff in the atmosphere. In fact I may even start cooking with all of the plastic wrapping that will soon be festooning my house.
I am going to drive everywhere, even to the end of the driveway to get the mail.
I am going to set tires aflame on earth day.
I will let my water hose run all the time, even if I have to let it flood the yard and run down the gutter.
I will let my household faucets stay on, running a stream of water continuously 24-7.....even the bath tub......and I will make sure it is the hot water spigot that is the one running.
I am going to take extra hot, extra long showers......without a water saving nozzle.
I am going to wear my clothes for 15 minutes and immediately wash them on the high water, hot wash, hot rinse setting.
I will make sure to run the dishwasher every time I use a dish....and I will run that on the long hot cycle also.
I will run my AC at 58 degrees all summer, walking around my house in a sweater and ski jacket if I must, but that will be countered by winter, when I will crank the heat up to 88 degrees and lounge around in bermuda shorts.
I will take out all of the trees on my property, and all greenery, and then pay my neighbors to let me take down their trees as well.....then I will use those trees for firewood.
I am going to use one complete roll of toilet paper every time I so much as pass gas.
I am also taking all of the insulation out of my house and replacing the nice new double paned windows with plastic sheeting, on the theory that plastic sheeting is good enough to keep the bugs out.
Better yet I will remove the windows and I will saturate my property with the most noxious chemicals I can get my hands on so that no bugs will live in my yard and be tempted to come into my house.
In short I am going to be the most wasteful SOB on this planet....well, next to Algore, at least..
It is Independence Day. The day that Americans celebrate throwing off the shackles of King George and declaring to the world that we have the God Given right, RIGHT, to decide our own fate, our own destiny and to not be governed by those that think themselves above the law.
The day we celebrate the fact, the FACT mind you, NOT the belief, that ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL.
Pay attention to that word “created” for it plays a large role in how this country was born. All men are equal in the eyes of the law. Nature, however, has always taken quite a different approach to that whole equality thing. It boggles my mind that there is a group of people in this world that can hold beliefs that are directly contradictory to each other. Specifically the liberal stance that man should stay out of “nature” (i.e. everywhere we have not yet built over or paved) yet we cannot let nature takes its course in society and let people succeed or fail on their own merits, that it isn’t “fair” that some people have more than others, never mind that some people are naturally smarter, or more ambitious or luckier than others.
That ideal, that we must take from those that have, those that earn and give it to those that don’t have or earn is patently un-American, and at its heart an evil policy of theft, avarice, greed and sloth.
It is theft from those that produce, avarice on the part of those that create those laws and policies and greed and sloth on the part of those that don’t produce or earn what they receive.
It has been said that those that surrender liberty for security deserve neither.
Of course it has also been said that:
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property, and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means." --Thomas Jefferson to John Colvin, 1810.
And this wisdom:
Dependence begets subservience and venality, suffocates the germ of virtue, and prepares fit tools for the designs of ambition.
Force is the vital principle and immediate parent of despotism.
I put forth that what the democrats are now doing (and have been for years) is patently un-American.
They have created a class of dependent people who are subservient to them. There are generations of people on welfare that have been told repeatedly that they are owed something for the travails of their ancestors. They show their subservience by blindly following a party that strives to keep them poor and panders to their victim mentality and they sell themselves for a pittance like common whores instead of taking responsibility for their lives and working towards a better future for themselves and their country.
The democrats suffocate the germ of virtue, for there is true virtue is honest work, and no virtue in sloth. Now that the people are becoming more dependent the ambitious designs of the democrats coalesce and ever more theft is in the future of this country.
They use the force of law to threaten citizens with prison and more theft in the form of fines and penalties if we stand up to this theft and say no.
Despotism comes next.
So on this Independence Day we should sit back and reflect on what it means to BE an American.
Being an American means so much more than simply living in this country. Being an American is a state of mind. One might say that BEING an American is almost a religion. For a religion is not solely an adherence to some book or belief or non belief in a deity but rather the way one lives their life and the beliefs and actions that guide ones decisions
Secular Humanism is a religion. As is adherence to the junk science of global warming, but those are topics for another day and we shall stick to the point of what it takes to BE an American.
There are many people around the world that are Americans at heart, but may never make it to our shores. Conversely there are many people in our great country that do not deserve the title of American.
Americans crave freedom.
Freedom to live their lives as they see fit.
Americans desire Independence.
Independence from tyranny and oppression.
Americans realize that Liberty is the first gift of the Creator and we so love the concept that all men are created equal and have an inalienable right to live in freedom that we have consistently gone to war to secure that freedom for ourselves and others.
Being an American means also being generous, to a point. We have been blessed in this country by our forefathers that sacrificed to build a nation of free men, men that were free to choose their destiny and succeed on their own merits, talents and abilities and this blessing should be shared. But a handout is inherently evil, as opposed to a “:hand up,” and true Americans understand the grace involved in helping our fellow man to become a better person by teaching them to contribute to society, thus bettering all of us, rather than to suckle at the teat of thieving socialist policies.
I have long said that socialism destroys the human spirit. People are like pendulums, and I have found that, generally, as far over on the side of good they can swing they can also go that far on the side of evil. The kindest most generous people I have known have also been the most vindictive when angered. Look at the democrats. They are extremely kind with other peoples’ money and thoroughly evil when it comes to actually getting that money from them, short of actually stabbing them in the street and taking their wallet.
Life is a lot like a pendulum also.
A man that cannot truly fail; I mean end up in the gutter living under a bridge and eating from a trashcan due to socialist policies that guarantee a minimum standard of living is also a man that cannot find the greatest heights of success through his ability. For the system that takes away the possibility of utter and abject failure also must take away the ability to truly succeed simply to take care of those failures and pepper the lower rungs of society.
The death of the human spirit is the only possible outcome of socialism.
They refused to ratify their new EU constitution because it took away too much of their welfare state and now many of them are up in arms about Sarkozy and his seeming adherence to a more conservative approach (read more common sense and personal responsibility and fewer 35 hour work weeks) to governing his whiny and complacent countrymen.
That mindset, the belief in a system of socialism that steals from those that produce to give to those that do not is exactly one of the major reasons our country fought a revolution. Only instead of every citizen being the recipient of that theft it was used for the state only.
King George III got exactly what he deserved. An ass whipping of such epic proportions that 230 some odd years later it is still a sore point with the descendants of his country.
Policies and laws that steal from one to give to another are inherently evil and should be completely against everything an American stands for, but many of our countrymen have gone soft, in the belly and the mind and hold beliefs that advocate exactly those ideals. Guilt and indoctrination from socialist academia and media have turned many of our countrymen, well — stupid.
Independence Day. The day we celebrate the founding of our great country and the ideals that make us uniquely American.
Daniel Webster gave the eulogies for Thomas Jefferson and John Adams (who both died on July 4th, 1826) and he said; "It [the Declaration of Independence] is my living sentiment, and by the blessing of God, it shall be my dying sentiment. Independence now, and independence forever."
This Independence Day reflect on the qualities that make us Americans and know that the forces arrayed against Liberty cannot win so long as we hold true to the principles that our country was founded upon.
