" I am now going to flee the scene before the authorities arrive because that was a big, f**king explosion"

This is why i want to move to Russia now:
The land of the free indeed! Bring it on! Oh, and as always, have a nice day!

Gun Envy

Along the lines of gun worshipping posts at Five Feet of Fury and such, here's the one I want :

A Kinetic Lie.

As a rule i don't like any foreign leader who's name i cannot spell. I am thus no fan of Ghadaffi. However, i dislike bullshit even more. Can someone tell me how a 'no fly zone' involves blowing up the presidents house or otherwise designates him as a legitimate target?  Even if you are a hawk you have to admit this is pretty far out there. Hats off to the intrepid reporters who at least tried to ask how no fly zones compare to air support for the rebels.
    On the other hand, given that Khadaffi has always maintained control over his populace via torture murder and intimidation, and has thumbed his nose at us for decades, how come he only now warrants an ass kicking? This latest military adventure (my suggestion as a substitute for 'kinetic military masturbatory exercise ') has the smell of a pack of dogs about it. When a dog get injured or trapped or otherwise panics,  it is instinctual for the dogs nearby to run to his aid  run up and kick his ass. Enter the Arab League.

"And that’s why building this international coalition has been so important because it means that the United States is not bearing all the cost.  It means that we have confidence that we are not going in alone, and it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally.  And we will accomplish that in a relatively short period of time."(emphasis added)
I think it is time for the people of the United States to stand up and accept the fact that while this guy is in power they can no longer, in good conscience , make fun of our politicians (except maybe The Count.....or Libby Davies....or ....

A Good Time For A First Blog

If ever there was a time for a first blog this is it. If for no other reason than to ask whether ANYONE in Canada is in doubt about the whole coalition thing. Ignatief can't win, the NDP are not likely to gain seats and yet, they are all lathered up about an election. Why?    Moreover, how are they going to sell the idea to us prols? While we might buy the idea of a coalition, we are talking about one involving the leading party, not the two or three parties on the bottom end. It is almost worth getting Macleans again just to hear the regular contributors pontificate. Is Mark Steyn back yet i wonder?
