Some quick hits
Ok, last night was a late night, but for the 4 people who read my blog on a regular basis I would be remiss if I posted nothing so here we go.
- Major newspaper comes out in defense of FEMA and the 16% of emergency money spent on bullcrap. If you read the whole article they defend FEMA to some degree, then bash them for trying to make changes to make it better. Really, where is the outcry over the lack of personal responsibility of the people cheating the system? In all the press I've read and tv watched on this I've yet to see anyone say "those people are scum of the earth criminals that need to be arrested and forced to work on cleanup of New Orleans". That's one of the things wrong with this country right now, is that their is no personal responsibility for your actions. Everything is someone elses fault i.e. the govt shouldn't of given out that money, Bush lied, the education system failed me. People need to accept that ultimate responsibility for their actions and the consequences lie with them, not someone else.
- Ace of Spades HQ has a great post about Coulter and whether or not the right should defend her now.Here's an excerpt.
If Coulter's defenders have some PRINCIPLED way to defend Coulter's, errr, exuberances while continuing to condemn similar over-the-line comments from the right, please share. So far I've not seen any. All I've seen is claims that Coulter is using the left's tactics against them and the like.Now I've got somethings to say here. 1st there is no one on the right more capable of defending themselves then Ann Coulter. The woman eats leftards as a snack, so we don't need to defend her. She's not a victim asking for help. 2nd there is a good reason for her rhetoric and that's the publicity for the book that gets garnered by it. If Coulter had made the same point on the "jersey girls" without the rhetoric she never would of been on the Today show or most of the other MSM outlets. When most media outlets are controlled by the enemy (and make no bones, the extreme left is the enemy we battle for the soul and future of this country) then sometimes you have to make a radical move to get the attention to get your point out to the undecideds in the war. 3rd Using the basis of the battle between Conservative and Liberal I call upon this quote of Sun Tzu,
Security against defeat implies defensive tactics; ability to defeat the enemy means taking the offensive. Standing on the defensive indicates insufficient strength; attacking, a superabundance of strength
- The war in Iraq, you know, watching the news etc. you might be led to believe that it is going horribly for us. I came across this article and page, and I got to tell you, it's absolutely frigging brillant. I won't describe, just go look.

Ann Coulter fun fact #317: Ann Coulter was the original choice for the part of Hedwig in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"; they changed their minds, however, and went with John Cameron Mitchell, after the original test audience unanimously recommended they change the word "Inch" in the title to "Foot and a Half".
Ann Coulter fun fact #238: Stephen King wrote children's books before briefly dating Ann Coulter in the early seventies. "Carrie" is loosely based on their second date.
Ann Coulter fun fact #177: If a mother tells her child to finish supper or the boogeyman will get him, the child finishes supper. If she replaces the word "boogeyman" with "Ann Coulter" the child eats the plate too, just to be safe.
Ann Coulter fun fact #146: In her spare time, Ann Coulter sneaks into childrens' homes and replaces their Monopoly game "Get out of jail free" cards with "Go to Hell free" cards.
Ann Coulter fun fact #1 She's right and your inane comments have done nothing to convince anyone that she's wrong. Hate her all you like (I think she likes it) but she dropped the liberal policy of victim infallibity on it's head.Post a Comment
