Iran is gearing up for a fight. A fight with WHOM?….we’re not exactly sure. But a fight none-the-less.
A senior Iranian commander on Sunday said his country would prepare 320,000 graves to accommodate its slain enemies in the event of an attack on the country. The remark was a veiled warning amid increasing tensions over Tehran’s controversial nuclear activities.
The Mehr news agency quoted Gen. Mir-Faisal Bagherzadeh as saying the graves would be dug in Iran’s border provinces, to provide for the burial of enemies in line with the Geneva Conventions.
IN LINE with the Geneva convention? Oh how…hospitable! And exactly where did the number 320 thousand come from? Let me guess…Ahmadinejad took the number of standing army troops he has…and assigned some HEROIC ratio…hmmm….I’ll guess 4:1. For every 1 Iranian soldier fighting the good fight…he’s figuring…4 of the enemy will be slain.
That’s it! I’m on to something here. Someone call the Pentagon. We now know…how many Iranians will be available to fight. Yep- 80,000.
“The burial of slain soldiers will be carried out decently and in little time,” said Bagherzadeh, a senior officer in the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) who heads a propaganda body called the Sacred Defense Foundation.
I’m glad they invented the internet (thanks Gore!) and hyperlinks. I couldn’t possibly make all of this up.

Line ’em up!
Now that yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision has lovingly pistol-whipped the city of Washington, DC….other gunowners are LINING UP to go after their respective cities. Uh…I have one word to say about that: Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.
Emboldened by Thursday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling affirming the right of individuals to own handguns, advocates said they would immediately challenge a San Francisco law that prohibits guns in public housing and sue other cities nationwide to overturn gun restrictions.
The California lawsuit, which the National Rifle Assn. said it would file in federal court in San Francisco today, was one of several legal challenges that gun rights groups said they would pursue in the wake of the court decision.
Hours after the Supreme Court ruling came down, two groups sued Chicago over its handgun ban, which is similar to the District of Columbia law the high court struck down. In addition, the NRA said it would file a lawsuit against Chicago today and would also sue surrounding cities that ban handguns.
In the rainbow city of San Francisco, where the only people with guns are bad guys, this is especially sweet. Just ask Inspector Harry Callahan.
I know what you’re thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five? Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? ….
Well, do ya…punk?

Leave it to Investor’s Business Daily to articulate what most conservatives have recognized early on. Barack Obama has been quietly gathering a veritable Rogue’s Gallery of supporters. Every dictator, thug, and despot on the planet….has lined up to endorse him. And let’s not forget- an infamous band of murdering psychopaths roaming the Middle East. (See Hamas.)
Real democracies don’t tell other nations’ citizens how to vote. But nations under one-man rule are another matter. Dictators’ preferences are all personal and usually frankly stated. And this year they’re all lining up behind Obama.
On Sunday, bloggers at One Free Korea noted that a North Korean mouthpiece, Chosun Sinbo, reported that dictator Kim Jong Il was adding his name to the list of those who support the Democratic standard-bearer.
Obama also has been endorsed by Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi. In a rambling speech last week, he advised Obama to “be proud of himself as a black and feel that all Africa is behind him.”
Gadhafi has kept Libya a backward petro-dictatorship since 1969 — when McCain was in the Hanoi Hilton.
Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega also chimed in praise for Obama as “laying the foundations for a revolutionary change” in America. Ortega shot his way to power in 1979, was thrown out in 1990, and recently returned to power in an election split three ways that has seen the dismantling of Nicaragua’s democracy.
Fidel Castro also has thrown his support to Obama, “the man who is doubtless, from the social and human points of view, the most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency.” Why so many of the world’s most despicable tyrants find an Obama presidency attractive ought to be an issue in this campaign. Obviously, if Obama is projecting a leftist agenda and foreign policy naivete, he’s seen either as an ally or someone who can be rolled.
Yes…I know…there are no formal dots to connect here…so all of you liberals who are near apoplectic about this observation…take some nitroglycerin. But let’s be clear: this is no small feat. I mean….if it were me…I’d want to be their MORTAL ENEMY…universally hated by these sociopaths- not looked on as a buddy or a pal…or as their last best (uh…to use Obamassiah’s favorite noun) ….

You gotta love reading the Drudge Report. It’s like reading a sagacious outragious contagious tabloid. Drudge is the consummate performer. No one can entertain and shock quicker, faster and with greater impact than he. It’s Grand Theatre. Why don’t you know…every day could be the END of the WORLD!
AP: Everything seemingly is spinning out of control
That was one headline…here’s another:
NASA WARMING SCIENTIST: ‘LAST CHANCE’
Yah…Global Warming…we humans only have a few years left to live. And if you don’t believe it-by God- here’s a few more to back it up.
Many Dutch prepare for 2012 apocalypse
More than 800 wildfires burning in California
Midwest floodwaters could linger for weeks
Scared to get out of bed? That ought to get your heart beating in the morning, huh? This was ONE DAY of headlines. You have to give Drudge credit, there’s a reason why he’s become a dominant news source. You can’t turn your eyes away…you might miss something! None of this is made up…..all of these headlines are nothing more than hyperlinks to supporting news articles- articles from established news agencies- where facts are checked and rechecked. So….you can bet there are:
1. Dutch boys ready for Armageddon
2. A carbon knuckleheaded NASA scientist
3. People up to their stop signs in water
4. California firemen working alot of overtime
It’s like the National Enquirer meets the Washington Post meets the New England Journal of Medicine. Hmmm, I wonder if I will live to see….

Democrats and the Main Stream Media will tell you we are in a huge recession….some even comparing it to a DEPRESSION: unemployment is up…the housing debacle…gas prices…how terrible the economy is…and well life in general…is just…just dreadful. If ALL of that is true-then I sure find this to be quite the ANOMALY:
Americans donated $306 billion to charities in 2007, as U.S. philanthropic giving rose to a record level despite a downturn in the national economy, a survey being released today has found. Charitable giving increased 1 percent last year, when inflation is taken into account, and surpassed $300 billion for the first time, according to the Giving USA survey.
Heavens to Cancer Research…what’s going on here? The MSM hasn’t let us forget how frightening life is. What with the blight…and the floods….and the famine…the global warming…AND the economy? (Good God…it’s a wonder I can get out of bed.)
But experts said that the growth may be short-lived, as many charities reported concerns that rising gas prices and turmoil in the housing and credit markets could hamper their fundraising this year.
Well there you go. Ye had to go and rain on the charity parade didn’t you? Yah….let’s not get too cozy with any bit of good news…the MSM will make sure you remember that…afterall- the world is STILL coming to an end dammit!
Over 300 billion for the FIRST TIME. Ever. Think about that. Something’s not adding up here. Could it be that we aren’t in a recession?
And never have been.

…for a false candidate. But what can we expect from Fast Eddie Obama?
The scariest thing about the Seal for the Department of Obama is the center hole. Makes me think of two things:
First, the creature coming out of people’s stomach in Alien
Second, the seal of the Anti-Christ in the Left Behind series.
Both are really creepy…but then, so is Osama Obama.

The Republican Party has jumped the shark. Seriously. Gone are the days of personal responsibility. Gone. Our society….our government….someone in charge of my taxes… will bail you out.
A broad bipartisan coalition supporting a massive foreclosure rescue beat back GOP efforts to gut it Thursday, defying a White House veto threat and quashing a bid to make it victim to revelations about two senators’ VIP mortgages.
Democrats and many Republicans consider the measure a political imperative amid rising foreclosures and growing public anxiety about the sagging economy. The measure is designed to help hundreds of thousands of borrowers in danger of losing their homes, but it also would benefit mortgage holders by allowing them to avoid costly foreclosures and reclaim some of what they’re owed by people facing financial ruin.
Yep…both the lender and the borrower were victims…now both get money. All is forgiven… NOBODY is at fault. Republicans are complicit and have trash-canned the very tenets that defined their party.

Finally, I’m living in a state where they take the death penalty seriously, have a constitutional amendment supporting marriage, and know the meaning of the word “Conservative.” I’m back home. Many thanks to Craig for keeping this site going while I made the transition to a new job, a a new home, a new dog, and a new internet provider. As I’ve watched in horror the continuing foolishness of Osama Obama, a 5-4 decision granting rights to the very terrorists who murdered thousands on 9/11, and the apparent mad dash back to September 10th, 2001 by the Left, I’ve been unable to post as I’ve been doing over the past eight years.
Now, I’m back.
Just in time for the Fall campaign. While I disagree with so much of what John McCain says he believes, he beats the heck out of Obama. Obama’s positons on judges are enough to make me run for the polls to pull the lever for McCain in November. We’ll deal with McCain foolishness regarding “torture” and so-called “global warming” after the election.
McCain has shown a willingness to change his views as new facts assert themselves. Hopefully, as he comes to realize his “friends” on the Left will rip him apart this summer and Fall, he will be more open to some different views on other issues as well.

A news report like this….makes me crazy. I feel so bad for the children, I want to immediately put the parents UNDER the jail.
Authorities say a teenager from a faith-healing family died from an illness that could have been easily treated, just a few months after a toddler cousin of his died in a case that has led to criminal charges.
Tuesday’s death of 16-year-old Neil Beagley, however, may not be a crime because Oregon law allows minors 14 and older to decide for themselves whether to accept medical treatment.
Remind me not to move to Oregon. I can remember when I was 16, I listened to my parents and I respected my parents and I certainly obeyed them and their decisions. If these 2 were my parents, I’d be DEAD.
In March, the boy’s 15-month-old cousin Ava Worthington died at home from bronchial pneumonia and a blood infection.
A simple visit to the doctor or a hospital, and the 2 kids would still be alive. This story is so sad, it’s absolutely…..maddening.

Two Hundred Thirteen THOUSAND Kilowatts…that’s how much. Yes…the Goracle of Delphi...is consuming even more energy this year than last!
In the year since Al Gore took steps to make his home more energy-efficient, the former Vice President’s home energy use surged more than 10%, according to the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “A man’s commitment to his beliefs is best measured by what he does behind the closed doors of his own home,” said Drew Johnson, President of the Tennessee Center for Policy Research. “Al Gore is a hypocrite and a fraud when it comes to his commitment to the environment, judging by his home energy consumption.”
In the past year, Gore’s home burned through 213,210 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity, enough to power 232 average American households for a month.
IMPRESSIVE. His appetite for electricity almost matches his appetite for food. 232 Houses a month? A couple more and you have…. a COMMUNITY.
