More Reasons to Buy American

Check out the latest 3 year quality ratings from JD Power. Automobiles were divided into 19 categories, and the highest quality model in each category was identified. Of note, General Motors vehicles came in at the top spot in 8 of the 19 categories, far more than any other manufacturer. Ford garnered 4 of the top spots.

All Japanese manufacturers combined for only 6 of the top vehicles. Still think Japanese quality exceeds that of the United States?

Where do Suicide Bombers Come From?

A few years ago, when radical jihadists began blowing themselves up on Israeli buses, I thought the trend would be short lived. After all, who hates others so much that they're willing to die, just to kill others? How many murderous fanatics can there be who place such a small value on their own life?

Unfortunately, it seems the Muslim world has a bountiful supply of suicidal, homicidal maniacs. In a story published out of Scotland today, it seems that one of the recent hellbound murderers came from France, by way of Great Brittain! Here is the story.

How to Love Your Country, by MoveOn.Org

Check out this latest publication from, titled "50 Ways to Love Your Country". I'm not really inclined to support, so I won't be purchasing this book. Besides, we could all probably guess 5 or 10 of MoveOn's top 50, couldn't we? Here's my take on what made MoveOn's list of how to "love your country":

  • Tax the wealthy out of existence.
  • Provide government funded abortions for everyone, and ensure parents of minors are never informed of their children's efforts to seek abortion.
  • Shut down America's military industrial machine and rely on the U.N. to protect our borders.
  • Cap profits on all US corporations. Any profits in excess of the cap to be redirected towards international debt relief.
  • Mandate racial and gender based hiring quotas for all businesses.
  • Melt down all US coin currency, and re-issue coins without "In God we Trust".
  • Remove tax exempt status from Christian organizations. Use new revenue to compensate prisoners "tortured" at Gitmo.
  • Roll out a one time tax on white men of 25% of net worth. Proceeds to be used for reparations, minority scholarships, and federal meals on wheels programs for immigrants crossing our boarders illegally.

These are only 8 agenda items I suspect are in this great new publication from I can only imagine the other 42 items on their list.

Gitmo "Too Tough" on Would-be Murderers

Check out this story from CNN about the treatment of a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It seems that the US military is accused by Congressmen (Hagel and Feinstein) of using excessive force in their attempts to gain information from detainee Mohammed al-Qahtani.

The horrors included making Mr. al-Qahtani urinate in his pants, late night interrogation sessions, and awakening him with dripping water if he fell asleep. In fact, the staff at Gitmo went so far as to awaken Mr. al-Qahtani with Christina Aguilera music. Oh, the horror! No wonder the Muslim world hates Americans!

By the way, it is widely believe that Mohammed al-Qahtani was to be the fifth hijacker on Flight 93 which crashed in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001. According to the Pentagon, al-Qahtani told interrogators that he "had been sent to the U.S. by Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the lead architect of the 9/11 attack; that he had met Osama bin Laden on several occasions; that he had received terrorist training at two al Qaeda camps; that he had been in contact with many senior al Qaeda leaders."

So putting all the pieces together, let's summarize: The United States has an admitted terrorist in custody, a man who has been dedicating his life to learning how to murder Americans, and attempted to enter the United States to participate in the September 11 attacks. In order to gather information from this man, we've humiliated him and made him listen to Christina Aguilera. Am I the only one who thinks that our interrogation techniques do not even approach "excessive"?

Jihadists in America

Check out this story from WorldNet Daily about the Islamic Thinkers Society (ITS). The blood-thirsty members of ITS recently produced a video of would-be assassins stomping on the American flag, and calling on all Muslims to join the fight against all other religions in order to achieve Islamic world dominance. If the video were shot in Tehran, this wouldn't be news. But the ITS operates out of New York City, where the video was shot.

These members of the "religion of peace" are quite outspoken about their hatred for America, and acknowledge that they do not recognize any American authority including the president, congress, etc. These "thinkers" equate mixed-gender prayer with eternal damnation. They live in the United States, and use the freedoms granted by our Constitution to advocate the overthrow of our government.

My question: Why aren't these scumbag anarchists locked up somewhere? If they do not recognize any American authority, then they should not be granted the rights contained in our Constitution. Secondly, why do liberal political organizations, such as the ACLU and the Democratic National Convention, persistently work towards weakening the Patriot Act? The fact is that we have enemies living on our soil. The fact is that these murderous vermin are devoting their lives towards toppling America as we know it, and killing Americans in the process. Isn't now the time to strengthen the Patriot Act? Isn't now the time to give our intelligence and law enforcement agencies the ammunition they need to lock these scumbags up for life? I'll gladly make a small sacrifice of my personal freedoms if that is what it takes to defeat the jihadists living on our soil.

Why is this Not a Surprise?

John Kerry finally released his academic record from Yale University, and the record shows that is academic performance is very similar to that of President Bush.

Of course, the Kerry campaign made every effort to portray their man as the intellectual compared to the bumbling Bush. The DNC relied on innuendo and media reporting to build up Kerry's intellectual image. After all - aren't all neoliberal proponents of infanticide far superior to right wing Christian neocons? But once again, another supposed pillar of the Kerry candidacy has been revealed to be a facade. For those of you keeping score at home, that's a 2.0.
