On Moral and Physical Cowardice

August 16th, 2010 2 comments

Suess Appeasement

Bill Whittle, in this installment of Afterburner, takes us to school on the consequences of appeasement and cowardice – a demonstration of head in the sand suicide. The cartoon’s link lead’s to Bill Whittle’s video – a worthy dozen minutes or so – and before you go, here’s a spot from The Weekly Standard that is definitely worth the entire read… but here is the closing paragraph that speaks to the same subject:

We need to recover our sense that, while any regime is capable of lapses in the protection of human rights, for democracies like the United States and Israel, these are lapses from their own standards, lapses which they work to redress. For tyrannies like Iran and Syria, as for jihadist revolutionaries, by contrast, human rights abuses are not lapses from a higher standard. On the contrary: The behavior we term “abuse” is their standard, one they strive to implement every day. We must also overcome our discomfiture at being labeled enemies of “the Muslim world” or the Iranian or Syrian “people.” Tyrants and dictators, and the jihadists who aspire to join them, do not represent their peoples, and they cannot represent high religious values. The West’s unambiguous moral opposition to such regimes and the terrorism they sponsor, whether deployed against their own populations or against innocents abroad, is at the service of liberating their peoples from fear and oppression.

Cheers you princes of our future!

Apologies

I'm Sorry, I Swear!

I’ve had a few 16 hour days, some of it associated with mandatory overtime. Bummer. That’s why there isn’t a new post up this Monday; however, I will put up a post for this week. My apologies for not keeping up!

Cheers!

Update: Peace offerings… Two great PJ O’Rourke quotes

Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we’re looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn’t test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.

After all, what is your host’s purpose in having a party? Surely not for you to enjoy yourself; if that were their sole purpose, they’d have simply sent champagne and women over to your place by taxi.

Something on Sunday – You Pansies!

August 1st, 2010 3 comments

Seriously, are you pansies gonna cry?

Here is what I am trying to tell you: the country is not ready for conservatism.  It flirts with it, as it did with the Bush’es and Reagan, but doesn’t fight for it.  It sits in a stupor while some goofball from Chicago openly and consciously kills the constitution.  No, ladies and gentlemen, you are not the men and women your grandparents hoped you would be.  Your old man “didn’t get his seed back”, as my Dad used to say.

Virgil and I spend a fair amount of time talking about whether the real change will come along as catastrophic, or slow-burn.  It could be either, after all.  And somehow, before all this can be resolved, it will be strong folks of character, at the local level, who put it back together.  The question I have for you is, will you take your power back, before they bankrupt you completely and put you into permanent servitude?  I don’t think you will.  But you’ll probably fight like hell for marijuana. The Daily Bayonet

Huge HatTip to the American Digest! Take a trip over to the ‘Bayonet’ and read the whole article… and according to the author it was “calculated to make some o’you pansies cry, so you might as well get started now.” I’m of a mind to write something similar with some of the same kind of old pictures of family. It would be worth doing just for my daughters – because their grandparents and great grandparents were remarkable people. Maybe it’s time we take back our communities to recreate a country.

Cheers all, and

Happy Sunday 😉
