Not In My Bible

Is God sending messages to the Scouts about their discrimination against gays and other unAmerican behavior?
Why does she hate God and America? She probably wants aliens to take over and help the teri....er, violent 'stremists in their struggle against King Goerge's crusade for intergalactic fiberty.
"Out with the hicks in 2006!"
Pressure on White House to dump Plamegate Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald; his new boss probably will be crook who previously worked with Abramoff and Gonzales.
Do not argue with republican fascists or any other idiots. They will distort everything you say, change the subject, accuse you of things you're not doing, and just, plain lie about you. Fear not. And argue not. In tennis, the mind set is, "Stay on your side of the net." Talk about what you want to talk about. Do not be sidetracked or angered.
We are the ones who love our country. They are the ones who would turn it into a feudal theocracy. We are veterans. They are chickenhawks. We are christians. They are abominations.
When confronted by fascists, ignore what they say. Do not bother fascists with facts and information. They are not teachable because their brains have been damaged by amtalkingheadradio, FAUXNEWS and televangelists.
The best-and easiest-thing to do is simply say, "I'll pray for you," and walk away.
Okay, people, the Moonie TIMES speaks to and for the right-wing extremists in our land, and somehow I, an America-hating, aid and comfort to the enemy-giving librul, know more about guns than they do.
1. No pistols are "laser-guided." Guns aren't laser-guided. Projectiles like missiles and very large artillery shells are laser-guided.
Most, possibly all, modern semi-automatic pistols can take a small laser-pointer mounted under the frame. Several such laser-pointers, about the size of a short cigar, have been on the market for years. There are even new military hip and shoulder holsters designed to hold combat pistols (the Colt M1911A1 .45, the M9 Beretta 9mm or the Sig-Sauer 223 9mm) equipped with laser- pointers. So if one has a good pistol and a laser-pointer, he/she must also have the correct holster, or the pistol is of little use as a weapon. The soldier also must have considerable training and practice with that pistol, or the purchase is a waste of money.
2. The single biggest pistol-related problem of Gulf War II has been magazines. The M9 Beretta takes "hi-capacity" mags holding 15 rounds. Beretta factory mags and a few after-market mags are of top quality. Problem is, a few years ago the Pentagon took the low bid and bought zillions of really crappy after-market mags with weak follower springs. Most of these have been reported as unreliable, jamming with regularity. Not a good thing in a firefight. Standing orders in Iraq have been to load no more than ten rounds in these cheap, lousy magazines. People have died because the Pentagon cut corners on pistol mags so they could spend more on missile shields that don't work and we'll never need.
3. But the usual, wartime Pentagon corruption and incompetency notwithstanding, handing out more "laser-guided" pistols wholesale will accomplish little in and of itself. Now, the M9 Beretta in its current configuration is a fine pistol. In the right hands, it is a very accurate combat sidearm, meaning a good shooter who practices regularly can hit a man-sized target out to 100 metres. The Colt and Sig-Sauer are equally accurate, again in the right hands. And that's the issue the Moonie TIMES knows nothing about.
The M9 and Colt are big pistols, and the slightly smaller Sig-Sauer was adopted as a "limited-standard" for issue to women and men with average or smaller hands (like mine, for instance. The Pentagon would have served the troops better by issuing the venerable Browning Hi-Power as limited-standard, but that's a different tirade.) All three are good pistols, reliable and accurate when properly maintained (and fed from decent magazines).
4. But no pistol, laser-guided or otherwise, is valuable until the soldier gets proper training and regular practice with it. Fast, accurate pistol shooting under stress is probably the most difficult weapon skill to learn. So unless the Moonie TIMES is advocating training and practice alongside the issuing of laser-guided pistols, this is nothing more than partisan hogwash meant to sound good for the masses while accomplishing little beyong putting more money into the hands of those who sell those wonderful laser-guided pistols.
5. As for what's more accurate, the M2 .50 caliber heavy machine gun and the Mk19 40mm grenade launcher (also fully-automatic, by they way; fires about 350 rpm) can lay every round on a truck at 1200 metres. I suggest the Moonie TIMES people learn a little something about weapons before they write anything else so silly as this editorial. (Click headline)
We now live in a theo-fascist police state run by liars, hypocrites, abominations, criminals, war-mongers and traitors (and accessories to treason). The 2006 mid-terms surely will be the most important election in our history. Remember this administration's crimes, failures and deconstruction of the Constitution.
"Out with the hicks in 2006!"
I still want to know of what church he's currently a member, his attendance record, and how much of his income over the required pre-tax 10% tithe he gives as an offering. Until he reveals these data, he's as much a christian as King Goerge is an honorably discharged veteran.
If only some reporters would start asking these above questions of our "leaders"...King Goerge, Dr. First, DeLay, Coultergeist, Spawn Insannity...all of them. Let them lead by example, not just mere words. Let them say to America, "Talk is cheap. Here's how I show my faith in action."

G-SAVE: Global Struggle Against Violent 'Stremists. Does Congress have to declare a "struggle?"
Thank God for The Daily Show.
Compare what Jesus taught to what theo-fascists teach.
"Christ was pretty specific about what he had in mind for his followers. What if we chose some simple criterion—say, giving aid to the poorest people—as a reasonable proxy for Christian behavior? After all, in the days before his crucifixion, when Jesus summed up his message for his disciples, he said the way you could tell the righteous from the damned was by whether they’d fed the hungry, slaked the thirsty, clothed the naked, welcomed the stranger, and visited the prisoner. What would we find then?"
This is not PhotoShopped, it's real.
Global Struggle Against Violent Extremists=G-SAVE
Notice the subtle evangelical ring to it?
We're now at war with global extremists. Ironic, isn't it? Domestic extremists at war with global extremists? And we're caught in the middle.
Yep, that's what we calling winning a war with lies. But then, since King Goerge started it with lies, so what?
Why they called him "Honest Abe""Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose—and you allow him to make war at pleasure."
– Abraham Lincoln
What do we get? Uncurious Goerge.
Jamboree Scouts wait hours in hot sun, 300+ overcome by heat, then their king doesn't even show up.

Let's apply that...logic...to theo-fascists who, for instance, blow up clinics and kill doctors and nurses or beat up queers, and their chrixtain imams who advocate such behavior. When has anyone from the religious wrong ever condemned those people or actions? Never. When have they encouraged it? Daily.
Jesus did not spend his short time on Earth teaching people to hate, bully, harm in any way or kill. He also didn't teach people to take over countries and turn them into theocracies.
He did, however, tell people that God loved them.
It's easy to compare what Jesus said and did to what today's theofascists say and do, and find absolutely no similarities whatsoever. This is mostly because today's theofascists use the Old Testament as the basis for their chrixtainity, and their pulpits as platforms for riches and control over people's lives.
Too bad they understand nothing at all about free will and love.
I wonder if they truly believe that demonizing their enemies will make them change their ways. It's not what Jesus taught, but that doesn't seem to matter anymore.
King Goerge should put Halliburton onto building something to save us from this interstellar terist that's probably librul and likely gay.
They want to privatize everything else, why don't they hire their own private mercenaries for their wars, and leave decent people alone?
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land......it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Electrical accident kills four Scout leaders at unconstitutional jamboree.
Now one little asshole is dead and another is wounded. This is called the Law of Natural Consequences, or "Stir up some $#!+, and you're liable to get some $#!+ on you."
Six tattoos will disqualify a potential recruit, but Ozzy/Satan-worship won't. I'd love to see Gunny Ermey unload on a bunch of "grab-asstic" knotheads recruited at OzzFest, wouldn't you?
Iraq is seeking its neighbours' help to boost electricity supply to face serious shortages largely due to continuous sabotage, Iraqi Electricity Minister Mihsen Shalash has said.
"I have negotiated with all neighbouring countries, mainly Syria, Turkey and Iran and there are negotiations under way with Kuwait to complete the electricity linkup," Shalash told reporters on Sunday in Jordan, the last stop in a tour that included the United States, Germany and Iran.
The Justice Department blocked efforts by its prosecutors in Seattle in 2002 to bring criminal charges against Haroon Aswat, according to federal law-enforcement officials who were involved in the case.

How mad at us would the muslim world be if we'd gone after Osama instead of Saddam's oil?
''Iraq has been an absolute gift to al-Qaida,'' said Paul Rogers, a professor of peace studies at England's Bradford University. ''[Al-Qaida] seems to have no difficulty in getting more and more recruits.''
If only some of us had warned 15 years ago (the first time people wanted to invade Iraq) that this is what would happen...
Whenever they call you names...and they will call you names......it'll usually be something like, "queer-lover," "Blame-America-firster," "America-hater," or "baby-eater." I suggest responding simply with, "And cancervatives are all liars, bullies, criminals and fascists." Better yet, just say you'll pray for them. And end the debate there. Waste none of your energy in contest with dolts.
What will King Goerge do between now and 2008? Will he continue to waste our resources in wars of conquest in the Middle East, and then, when all is lost, declare as Hitler did that we deserve annhilation for allowing ourselves to be defeated?
A recent poll shows that over half of America fears World War III. If it happens, it will be on King Goerge's head, and the heads of those who either supported him or didn't oppose him strongly enough. This latter group is what we used to call Democrats.
America's only hope lies in the 2006 mid-terms. Become involved however you can. Convince your friends to hold their noses and vote for Democrats. However spineless they are these days, at least they're not warmongerers and theo-fascists.
Between now and then, do what you can to convince your representatives in D. C. to oppose everything King Goerge wants. Let them know we really don't want America turned into a feudal theocracy.
We must fight till hell freezes over. Then we must fight on the ice. But mostly, we must fight. Only fighters can save America. Fight how you can, but fight. Get your mind around becoming a fighter. Have a fighter's mentality. Prepare to fight. Then, fight.
If we don't do this, we deserve what we get.
