Bush: This Is A Two-Term President?

11.16.05 - The election of George Bush for a second term to the most important office in the world remains the greatest mystery of this young century. How did he manage that achievement? This man can't even talk. Listen to some of the things he says:

"If it were to rain a lot, there is concern from the Army Corps of Engineers that the levees might break. And so, therefore, we're cautious about encouraging people to return at this moment of history."—Washington, D.C., Sept. 19, 2005

"I think younger workers—first of all, younger workers have been promised benefits the government—promises that have been promised, benefits that we can't keep. That's just the way it is."—Washington, D.C., May 4, 2005

"Anyway, I'm so thankful, and so gracious—I'm gracious that my brother Jeb is concerned about the hemisphere as well."—Miami, Fla., June 4, 2001

Compared to other two-term Presidents—FDR, Reagan, Washington to name a few—is he even in the same league? You've got to be kidding.

Islam: Can We Get Some Answers Here?

11.16.05 - In light of the recent violence outbreaks in France and the hotel bombings in Jordan, we are reminded again who instigates the majority of unrest and violence around the world. How long are we going to ignore the fact that Islam wants to see us all dead? Is it just fanatics? Don't be fooled by the dismissive claims that all this hatred is instigated by a few radicals.

In recent article in the LA Times, Commentator Dennis Prager presented the following five questions to Muslims that the West has yet to hear answers for. If the majority of Muslims are such peace-loving, compassionate individuals, then:

  • Why are you so quiet?
  • Why are none of the Palestinian terrorists Christian?
  • Why is only one of the 47 Muslim-majority countries a free country?
  • Why are so many atrocities committed and threatened by Muslims in the name of Islam?
  • Why do countries governed by religious Muslims persecute other religions?

It is about time we got some straight answers to these sticky questions. Until then we must conclude that Islam is at the root of the rampant violence today.

Anna Nicole: It Gets Worse.

11.16.05 - MSNBC reported back in September:

Smith’s attorney, Kent Richland, told justices that Marshall’s son “devotes nearly half his brief to manipulating the record to cast (Vickie) in a bad light.” Richland said that J. Howard Marshall intended to provide for his wife throughout her life.

Nobody could cast Anna Nicole Smith in a worse light than she can do for herself. This photo says everything.

Celebrities: The New Anna Nicole Smith

11.16.05 - Are these photos of the same woman? What a transformation. What's amazing is she doesn't look so stupid when she is thin and hot. After being embarrassed on the Howard Stern Show a couple of years ago, Anna Nicole Smith went on the TrimSpa diet and restored her once perfect figure.

You may recall what a fool Anna Nicole made of herself during her short-lived reality show on E! Fat and obviously high on something, she slurred her words and seemed to exist on another plane altogether. You couldn't help but feel sorry for her teenage son who always looked stunned and bewildered by his famous mom.

After losing her court case in claiming the fortune of her 89-year-old deceased husband, in September Smith took her appeal all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court! If she wins, she stands to be awarded an $88.6 million fortune.

Stupid? I don't think so. Dumb, maybe. But not stupid.
