This is Bizarre 

Every once in a while, I run a Google search for my name. I have a few things published on the net, and I run a search to see if anything has been picked up for review or if something has been re-published without my knowledge. Things like that.

Well, I found a strange and unrecognized page, so I clicked over to it to see what it was all about. I really don't understand it, but apparently, someone created a page for search results for the words braggadocio and teeth. One of my stories happens to contain both of those words, so a brief clip is presented along with a direct link to the page.

Righteous Indignation Has Never Been More Righteous 

One of the resident toadies at Blogs for Bush posted the following idiocy about the Delay indictment:
really do urge our Democrats to step back from the edge - you are sitting in a lake of gasoline and you are playing with fire. We on our side will only put up with so much before we start to pay back with usury what we have received. If you can't defeat Tom Delay in the electoral field, then you will simply have to accept him as Majority Leader of the United States House of Representatives - and you'd better start accepting political reality before things get really bad.
This inspired the following brilliant rant from a poster named Hunter at Dailykos
Welcome to the world of the politics of personal destruction, you tubthumping, chin-jutting, Bush humping gits. Welcome to the nasty and partisan world that Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Hugh Hewitt, Grover Norquist, Newt Gingrich, Tom DeLay, and a legion of insignificant lowest-rung toadies like yourselves nurtured into fruition daily with eager, grubby hands, and now look upon with dull-faced faux horror.

I know you hate me, and anyone else who dares disturb the thin strands of alternate reality in which George W. Bush is an intellectual giant, Saddam really was responsible for 9/11, the economy is getting better by the minute, and we capture the most very important members of al Qaeda on a weekly basis.

But here's some advice. You'd better start hating me more. This is the world you forged and, unfortunately for you, I'm beginning to take a fancy for it. Welcome to the politics of your own party, finally sprouting from the ground on which you planted the seeds and shat upon them.

Step back from the edge? You poor boy, asleep in the back of the car the whole trip, finally waking up and wondering where you're at.

Swift boats. Aluminum tubes. Niger uranium. "Mushroom clouds". Whitewater.

Vince Fucking Foster.

You can't even see the edge from here. You left it behind a hundred miles back.
There's more, and it's all good.

Incidentally, I left off a little comment at B4B a few weeks ago. It was an innocuous comment to which they began to immediately rail against me with vitriol and acrid idiocy.
Nope. We're saying that you bloviating stupid jackasses were screaming "10000 10000 10000" and now it's more like "a few hundred". Pointing out hyperbole and jackassery of the highest order you pathetic degenerate leftist tool. :)


For our pathetic stupid leftist "Mister" hydra troll:


Hey......."Mister" Hydra troll sh*t bag:

You're still trying to validate your wretched existence by flinging poo at us and ignoring our response. Sad.
And this after they had turned off the ability for me to comment back. The thread here referenced has already been shut off for comments by the brave fascists who run Blogs for Bunnypants.

Cowardly and stupid. It's a dangerous combination.

An Open Letter to Mary Ann Lukaszewicz 

The following letter appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Saturday:
Keep God in pledge

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton, who declared that the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools is unconstitutional because it says "one nation under God" should be ashamed of himself (" 'Pledge' in Legal Trouble," Sept. 15). Pretty soon they'll take "so help you God" from the oath when a person swears on a Bible that he or she is to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Troy Hill
Right, and then they'll stop having public executions, and they'll take the stockades from in front of the courthouses. Oh, wait. They already did that. And they also removed the REQUIREMENT that one say "So help me God" when taking oaths. Or to be more specific, there never was one.

The US Constitution specifically prohibits religious tests. Swearing oaths to God has ever been optional. During my recent divorce, I watched my wife swear to God that the evidence she was about to give was truthful, and when my turn came I asked if I might simply affirm that I was going to tell the truth, and that's what I did.

The simple fact is that the 9th circuit court judge was absolutely correct in his finding. When it came before the SCOTUS, they chickened out and dodged the question by hiding behind the "fact" that Newdow had no legal standing to bring the case on behalf of his daughter, but they never actually decided the case on merit.

Let's look at those merits, shall we? The first amendment states:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...
But in 1954, in order to appease a right-wing lobby that wanted to seperate the God-fearing US from the atheistic heathens of the USSR, Congress officially added the words "under God" TO the pledge. God is a monotheistic concept and thereby Congress passed an ipso facto law establishing monotheism as the recognized US religion. This - in the simplest possible terms - was Congress doing that which the first amendment to the US Constitution specifically bars them from doing, and was therefore by definition unConstitutional.

Next step, having the words, "In God We Trust," removed from the coin of the realm. I mean seriously, WWJD?
