If you libs really think that you can ignore global issues and just sit around and play with yourselves you're a few watts short.

In case you didn't notice, we were attacked on 9/11. Let me say it slowly for you that are hard of reading A T T A C K E D.

That word means (definition from the dictionary for those of you that aren't sure) "To make an attack; launch an assault".

Not sure what that means in your book, but in mine, when someone hits me and it looks like they might keep doing it I'm gonna pound them. If I think they will kill me, I will kill them.

You folks seem to think that you have to be killed before you can kill back. And even when you are killed (9/11) you want to hold hands, sing and pretend that maybe if we became a more "tolerant" country we wouldn't have these problems.

In case you haven't heard, it is written in their book, not ours, kill all Christians and Jews who won't convert to Islam.

Isn't it funny how the saying of the peace loving 60s is not said anymore. Remember what it was? I do...Jesus Loves You


Have a nice day

I asked a liberal friend of mine "what would you do if you were in a swamp, had a shotgun and a crocodile was coming at you?"

She said "I wouldn't put myself in that situation"

I said "Pretend that you have no choice, your plane crashed and there you are"

She said "I wouldn't put myself in that situation"

I was trying to get her to understand that protecting herself from something bad is not a bad thing.

Finally I said "You wouldn't do anything, you would just let the crocodile eat you, thinking that it is the "Dao" thing to do. After all, you would feed the crododile and the world would keep turning because of your contribution/sacrifice"

She looked at me, smiled, and said something along the lines of "Yeah, probably"

Guten appetite Herr Crocodile, but pass me the gun before you go please Mrs Liberal

Another Idiot Professor - The future of our children is in the hands of people like this

Dr. Michael I. Niman teaches journalism and media studies at Buffalo State College. Here is an article posted by him on the web site at

Note that in the article there isn't one point of fact. It is all conjecture. He even makes the statement that he is not a "conspiracy theorist" and yet doesn't seem to think that writing this idiotic article doesn't classify him as one.

Was Paul Wellstone Murdered?

By Michael I. Niman, AlterNet
October 28, 2002

Paul Wellstone was the only progressive in the U.S. Senate. Mother Jones magazine once described him as, "The first 1960s radical elected to the U.S. senate." He was also the last. Since defeating incumbent Republican Rudy Boschowitz 12 years ago in a grassroots upset, Wellstone emerged as the strongest, most persistent, most articulate and most vocal Senate opponent of the Bush administration.

In a senate that is one heartbeat away from Republican control, Wellstone was more than just another Democrat. He was often the lone voice standing firm against the status-quo policies of both the Democrats and the Republicans. As such, he earned the special ire of the Bush administration and the Republican Party, who made Wellstone's defeat that party's number one priority this year.

Various White House figures made numerous recent campaign stops in Minnesota to stump for the ailing campaign of Wellstone's Republican opponent, Norm Coleman. Despite being outspent and outgunned, however, polls show that Wellstone's popularity surged after he voted to oppose the Senate resolution authorizing George Bush to wage war in Iraq. He was pulling ahead of Coleman and moving toward a victory that would both be an embarrassment to the Bush administration and to Democratic Quislings such as Hillary Clinton who voted to support "the president."

Then he died.

Wellstone now joins the ranks of other American politicians who died in small plane crashes. Another recent victim was Missouri's former Democratic governor, Mel Carnahan, who lost his life in 2000, three weeks before Election Day, during his Senatorial race against John Ashcroft. Carnahan went on to become the first dead man to win a Senatorial race, humiliating and defeating the unpopular Ashcroft posthumously. Ashcroft, despite his unpopularity, went on to be appointed Attorney General by George W. Bush. Investigators determined that Carnahan's plane went down due to "poor visibility."

Carnahan was the second Missouri politician to die in a small plane crash. The first was Democratic Representative Jerry Litton, whose plane crashed the night he won the Democratic nomination for senate in 1976. His Republican opponent ultimately captured the seat from his successor in November.

While an article in the New York Times on Saturday pointed out the danger politicians face due to their heavy air travel schedules, the death of a senator or member of Congress is still relatively rare, with only one other sitting U.S. Senator, liberal Republican John Heinz, dying in a plane crash since World War II. Heinz, who entered office as an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War, later emerged as a strong proponent of health care, social services, public transportation and the environment. He also urged reconciliation with Cuba. He died when the landing gear on his small plane failed to function, and a helicopter dispatched to survey the problem crashed into his plane.

One former senator, John Tower, also died in a small plane crash. Tower was best known as the chair of the Tower Commission, which investigated the Reagan/Bush era Iran/Contra scandal.

Another member of a prominent government commission who died in a small plane crash was former Democratic representative and House Majority Leader Hale Boggs. Boggs was best known as one of the seven members of the Warren Commission, which investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The commission found that Lee Harvey Oswald was acting alone when he killed the president. Boggs, it turns out, had "strong doubts" that Oswald acted alone, but went along with the commission findings. Later, in 1971 and 1972, he went public with his doubts. He was presumed dead after the small plane carrying him and Democratic Representative Nicholas Begich disappeared in 1972.

Texas Democratic Representative Mickey Leland also died in a plane crash. In his case, the six-term member of Congress and outspoken advocate of sanctions against the apartheid government of South Africa, died while traveling in Ethiopia. Another American politician to die overseas in a plane crash was the Clinton administration's Commerce Secretary, Ronald Brown, whose plane went down in the Balkans.

Anyone familiar with my work knows that I'm certainly not a conspiracy theorist. But to be honest, I know I wasn't alone in my initial reaction at this week's horrible and tragic news: that being my surprise that Wellstone had lived this long. Perhaps it's just my anger and frustration at losing one of the few reputable politicians in Washington, but I also felt shame. Shame for not writing in my column, months ago, that I felt that Paul Wellstone's life, more so than any other politician in Washington, was in danger. I felt that such speculation was unprofessional and would ultimately undermine my credibility. In the end, my own self-interest triumphed, and I never put my concerns into print. Neither did any other mainstream journalist, though I know of many who shared my concern.

When I heard Wellstone's plane went down, I immediately thought of Panamanian General Omar Torrijos, who in 1981 thumbed his nose at the Reagan/Bush administration and threatened to destroy the Panama Canal in the event of a U.S. invasion. Torrijos died shortly thereafter when the instruments in his plane failed to function upon takeoff. Panamanians speculated that the U.S. was involved in the death of the popular dictator, who was replaced by a U.S. intelligence operative, Manuel Noreiga, who previously worked with George Bush Senior.

There is no indication today that Wellstone's death was the result of foul play. What we do know, however, is that Wellstone emerged as the most visible obstacle standing in the way of a draconian political agenda by an unelected government. And now he is conveniently gone. For our government to maintain its credibility at this time, we need an open and accountable independent investigation involving international participation into the death of Paul Wellstone. Hopefully we will find out, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that this was indeed an untimely accident. For the sake of our country, we need to know this.


Note the last statement "we need to know this". I love the way the liberals throw out a statement like that. As if we don't find out that he wasn't murdered the implication of murder will be good enough to make it look like there are dem killers out there.

Dems & the Liberal Left News

CNN, CBS, PBS, NBC, ABC, almost all local channels & most other news channels are left wing.

It is interesting how many right wing radio personalities there are though. I think it's because once these extreme left wingers start talking live, they know that they can't open the phones for fear of being slammed the whole time.

Some might argue that they are successful businesses

They're successful businesses that slant their news to the left. It's how things are said and what is said.


Pro Choice
Anti Abortion

Why not Pro Life?

They came down on Kenneth Star like he was the one being investigated & left the rapist molester Clinton off the hook.

N.O.W. is allowed to spew their hatred against men and conservatives without a challenge.

The United Nazis (UN) is allowed to spill their hatred against the Jews and the United States without challenge. Their conference on racism and hatred welcome the worst of the worst violators of human rights. Arabs openly sold t-shirts that were anti-Jew. Africans and Arabs murder, rape and pillage like it was the dark ages and the United Nazis make sure to write more UN resolutions against Israel than any other country.

And the left wing media says? Nada of course

The communist news network (CNN) is run by Ted Turner, whose wife sat on anti aircraft guns in Vietnam. Problem is they were the enemies guns.

The wacko environmentalists put spikes in trees so loggers will maim themselves as they are doing their job. The forest service is filled with these WEs who lie about what animals they have seen so that they can claim an area as a refuge. Their lies and hatred go untold by the left media.

This is a two party system country. If you're not left, you're right. Yeah, there may be some moderates. I think that they're mostly to one side or the other though and have 1 or 2 issues that drift over so they call themselves moderates because of that.

Everything is politics. Everything, including the news. There is no such thing as unbiased news.

There are so many hundreds of examples of bias in the news, and because I am a conservative I see them every day.

Like I said, it's not just what is said, it's how it's said.

Hillary's rants

Here are some more of Hillary's lies. Like husband, like wife I guess. Her accusation that Bush destroyed the economy is beyond laughable. Even current wacko liberals admit that the economy started the downturn before Bush came into office.

NEW YORK, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- At a private fund-raiser in Los Angeles
for Democratic Sen. Jean Carnahan of Missouri, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton
told the crowd that President Bush merely had been "selected" president, not
elected, Newsweek reports in the current issue. "You know, I'm a fan of
Clintonomics," she told the crowd while standing from a perch on the staircase
of movie producer Alan Horn's art-filled Bel Air home, "and this
administration is destroying in months our eight years of economic progress."

Though she and her husband had raised more money than any other Democratic
political team this year, Clinton said, Bush's machine has raised far more "to
try to ruin the reputations of our candidates or, if they can't, to depress
the turnout" by making campaigns unpalatably nasty. "But, you know, you have
got to hand it to them," Clinton said with what sounded like a rueful
appreciation. "These people are ruthless and they are relentless."

The UN runs America

Do you think that foreign governments can control US opinion, policy and elections?

Think about this...

The UN has successfully distracted us from attacking Iraq way past Bush's declaration that this has to be resolved in "weeks rather than months or years". They know that to do something now will give Bush higher ratings than he already has in this country, and that could translate into greater votes for Republicans this November 5th.

Interesting how Great Britain has no backbone when it comes to the much needed government change in Iraq. I think Saddam has snubbed his nose at the world enough times for all of us to be called complete idiots for asking him once again for "permission" to let inspectors in. I seem to remember that the UN resolution called for unconditional observation using international inspectors after the Gulf War, which he did not abide by. Thanks to our former coward/rapist/liar in chief Mr. Bill Clinton and the rest of the socialist world that thinks we should all just get along, nothing has been done to force him to honor that agreement.

Here's an idiotic statement from the wimpy labour party from this page,,2-398853,00.html, "Most suggested that there should be no military action without a fresh UN resolution".

Oh yeah, like they always require a "fresh" resolution. As if the last one spoiled & smells bad now
