Mexican flags and Communist thugs celebrated in Woodland

My son and were driving home from Woodland today around 1 pm when a Woodland Joint Unified School District bus went by. Hanging halfway outside the bus were about ten students waving several Mexican flags and a 3 foot by 5 foot bright red banner with Che Guevara on it. How wonderful.

I followed the bus for a little while and it seemed to be cruising in a circle around Woodland. I wish I had written the bus number down to see if I could get an explanation from the WJUSC on why the district would allow a tax payer bus and union driver to cruise around town to support a foreign government and a dead Cuban Communist.

I saw close to 100 students in small groups today marching I guess in support of Ceasar Chavez, or in opposition to proposed legislation to curb illegal immigration. Most carried Mexican flags, I never once saw an American flag. It made me a little angry at the ingratitude shown by the students. I wonder how many would like to go back and live in the old country to see what life is like in the country whose flag they carry? Not many I would guess.

What Che has to do with it I don't know, they probably saw his picture hanging adoringly in one of their social studies classes.

Voter Fraud Crackdown

Thank you Bruce McPherson.

It seems that many new voter registration forms are being returned to the Counties where they originated because they don't include the required information. Information such as drivers license numbers and social security numbers. Now do you understand why 'One Bill Gill' want so desperately to get drivers licenses into the hands of illegal aliens? It is not his concern for their ability to acquire car insurance, that's for sure.

More than 25 percent of the new registration forms sent to the state since Jan. 1 have been returned to the counties, most because they lack the driver's license, state identification or Social Security numbers now required by federal law.

"It's part of the new validation requirements that are pretty stringent,'' said David Tom, election manager for San Mateo County. "Any information that doesn't match exactly gets rejected.''

In San Mateo County, more than a third of the registrations turned in to the state since the first of the year have been rejected. The number is even higher in sprawling Los Angeles County, where 43 percent of the registrations this year have been sent back to the county.

That must be why Los Angeles County has so many problems with registration, its sprawling. Could it be the high percentage of illegal aliens? Hmm.

News from Hamasistan

Just so they are not confused with the sane human beings, at their swearing in, Hamas sings one of their golden oldies.

Were gonna keep killin Jews til they aint none left, if we all have to die to do it.

Chanting "God is Greatest" after the vote, Hamas parliamentarians hugged and kissed Ismail Haniya, their prime minister-designate, who vowed not to abandon the fight against Israel. One Hamas MP, Hamed Bitawi, said: "The Quran is our constitution, jihad is our way, and death for the sake of God is our highest aspiration."
Its hard to dance to and just plain crazy to boot, but the left will keep buying their music.

Oh please,,,,,

"Democrats promise to eliminate Osama".

To quote Rosanne Barr - "And monkeys might fly outa my butt".
Congressional Democrats promise to "eliminate" Osama bin Laden and ensure a "responsible redeployment of U.S. forces" from Iraq in 2006 in an election-year national security policy statement. In the position paper to be announced Wednesday, Democrats say they will double the number of special forces and add more spies, which they suggest will increase the chances of finding al-Qaida's elusive leader.

Does anyone other than the tin-foil hat wearing folks in the fever swamp left believe this? If they do I have a bridge in Capay I would like to sell them.

Why didn't Bush think of that? More Special Forces and spies, brilliant! Lets take some of them army guys give em green berets, and whammo, instant Special Forces. As for spies, lets hire a bunch of cab drivers in Kabul, I mean they speak the language don't they, and send them into the hills and find the tallest man in Afghanistan. No problem, three weeks tops and we bag Osama.

Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelois the master military strategist of our age.

Mike Wallace to interview Iran's President?

Not be outdone by the now disgraced Dan Rather's interview of Saddam, Mike Wallace says he is close to obtaining an interview with Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This should be classic.

Wallace interviewed the late Ayatollah Khomeini after the overthrow of the Shaw in 1979. I remember his questioning of the old head Nutter in Iran, he was trying to ask why people thought Khomeini was crazy without getting taken out back and shot in the head. Wallace may be old school liberal, but the guy has guts. I wonder if he will ask Ahmadinejad the same question?

"President Ahmadinejad, there are many people in America and throughout the world who think you are, forgive me Mr. President, an Islamic nutjob of the first order, how do you respond to that?"

"Well Mike, sticks and stones may break my bones, BUT THE STREETS WILL RUN RED WITH THE BLOOD OF THE INFIDELS!"

Good luck Mike, good luck.

Six questions to ask before Congress passes anything.

Real Clear Politics has a story that asks great questions about what government should and shouldn't do. Edwin Feulner is president of the Heritage Foundation.

Here are six simple questions our politicians - and the people who elect them - should raise when considering any proposed government action:

1. Is it the government's business? Federal power should be brought to bear only on those things that cannot be handled more efficiently by a state, a community or an individual.

2. Does it promote self-reliance? Too many government programs punish individual initiative. Some even create a permanent underclass of dependents.

3. Is it responsible? Too many policy-makers treat the federal treasury as a bottomless well of cash. It isn't. Washington's unfunded promises must be paid eventually. Where will the money come from?

4. Does it make America more prosperous? Politicians brag about "bringing home the bacon." But all the pork projects and open-ended entitlements actually sap America's prosperity.

5. Does it make us safer? Congress requires nearly 40 percent of federal anti-terrorism spending be divided equally among the states. Is the terrorist threat really as great in Montana as in California or New York? Government's first order of business is to protect the homeland, not "spread the pork."

6. Does it unify us? Our country grows stronger through addition and multiplication, not subtraction and division. Government policies should encourage patriotism, American values and a common language to foster a unified national identity.

Hollywood responds to The Passion and Narnia

The Da Vinci Code will be the flagship of secular Hollywood's response to Christian themed films. It is sure to be a box office smash this summer. It looks to be an entertaining movie, but many movie goers without a understanding of the Bible or its historical background may come away believing the Da Vinci Code is based on Historical fact and not what it is, a work of fiction. I wonder if Hollywood would have embraced the story if it was a not so subtle attack on Islam instead of Christianity? They wouldn't have touched the story with an eleven foot pole. The eleven foot pole is used when you won't touch something with a ten foot pole. I am still waiting for the gay Muslim cleric move 'Brokeback Mosque' to be released. No takers?

How many people watched the Nicholas Cage movie 'National Treasure' and came away thinking there is a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence? Not many I would hope. Dan Brown, the author of the book The Da Vinci Code is hoping that with a little slight of hand, some Hollywood backing and used car salemanship he can convince Joe and Jane America that Jesus was just a regular married guy who was made into the Messiah by the Emperor Constantine.

For an more information by a New Testament scholar and a great blogger check out Mark D Roberts and the series on the Da Vinci Code.

Yet another reason to be thankful...

Thankful that my church does not have a message sign out front that is..


WazzaDem keeps me rolling.

BTW, the term 'pwn3d' is urban slang for owned or being beaten badly at something. I had to look it up.

While the left keeps throwing out no WMDs in every piece they write, lets look back at some of their predictions to see how right they were about Iraq.
A great post at Gateway Pundits tells it all.

Republicans will loose in the midterms, and deservedly so.

I must state up front that I am not easily angered. I am also pragmatic and I truly want what is best for our country (you can hear the but coming right?)BUT what in the wide, wide world of sports is going on with the Republicans in Washington? I know that the war is the most important issue we face and if you are a strong supporter, you get cut a little slack when it comes to spending, but this is ridiculous. I did not vote for a 45% increase in the size of the Federal Government. Did I miss that TV add by the RNC? Vote for us and we will outspend the democrats!
Just hours after opening a new line of credit through an increase in the federal debt limit, the Senate splurged on a bevy of popular programs before approving a spending plan that was as much a political document as an economic one, its fine print geared to the coming elections.

Forced to choose between calls for renewed austerity and demands for more money, many Republicans joined Democrats in reaching deeper into the Treasury, leaving the party's push for new fiscal restraint in tatters.
I understand that we are fighting a war, and that cost money. Protecting the homeland cost money, I get that. Katrina relief? Ok, but since when did the federal government pay to rebuild an area the size of the gulf coast by opening the national treasury before they knew how much damage should be passed along to the tax payer? Where are the fiscal conservatives who have the guts to ask 'where the hell is all this money going and how can we do a better job using less?' The Republicans have learned from the democrats, you can stay in power if you bring home the pork to your district. If my constituents care about an issue, I will vote to increase spending whether it makes a difference or not, it shows I care.

Republicans have fallen into the democratic trap. If they don't vote for more spending, the democrats will use that to say they don't care. Is there no courage left in DC? I may not be campaign strategist, but I have a response to that line attack; "I did not come to Washington DC to bribe my constituents with their children's and grandchildren's money"

I fear the real damage will come home when the conservatives say 'enough' and stay home on election day. The big wall of monitors behind Wolf Blitzer will turn from red to blue and Republicans will wonder how we lost control of Congress at such a critical time in our history. Oh and as an added bonus the last two years of the Bush administration will be spent on impeachment instead of the war against radical Islam.

I hope I am wrong, but as they say, hope is not a plan.

I'll do it, you know I will!

Democrats take Feinold snipe hunting.

The best thing about the Democrats in Washington is they never fail to pander to the fever-swamp left. Just when the President is at a low point in the polls the fever-swamp thinks the time is right for bring up impeachment or censure or some other silly stunt to 'take back our nation'. Thank goodness for Russ Feingold and John Murtha. If I were advising the DNC, I would say when your opponent is flailing in water and just about ready to go under, go have a sandwich. You do not jump in next to him to point out he is drowning.
"If the Democratic Party is going to be attacking the president in a time of war, then we are ready to vote and let's see what the Democratic Party says,"Frist told reporters right after the floor skirmish.

When will the left learn? Ok, I take that back, they will never learn, their hatred of Bush makes reason and logic foreign concepts. The Senate leadership knows th censure vote will give the President a boost and give more ammo to the GOP in the fall. Cut, run and obstruct is not a platform to win back the Congress. Please Senator Frist, make the Democrats vote censure, let them show the nation who they are and what they stand for.
"The terrorist surveillance program has helped prevent attacks. It has protected American lives. And it remains essential to the safety and security of the United States of America. Yet instead of acknowledging the urgent need to track enemy communications in wartime, some Democrats in Congress have decided that the President is the enemy.

Dick Cheney is going to beat the Democrats like a bongo drum if they vote for this.

We don't carry books by fascists

A study in hypocrisy by the bay.
A friend of mine took his daughter to visit the famous City Lights in San Francisco, explaining that this store is important because years ago it sold books no other store would - even, perhaps especially, books whose ideas many people found offensive. So, though my friend is no Ward Churchill fan, he didn't really mind the prominent display of books by the guy who famously called 9/11 victims "little Eichmanns."

But it did occur to him that perhaps the long-delayed English translation of Oriana Fallaci's new book, "The Force of Reason," might finally be available, and that, because Fallaci's militant stance against Islamic militants offends so many people a store committed to selling banned books would be the perfect place to buy it. So he asked a clerk if the new Fallaci book was in yet.

"No," snapped the clerk. "We don't carry books by fascists."

Just savor the absurd details of this for a minute....

"You're welcome to buy her book elsewhere, though," my friend was told helpfully when he visited. "Let's just say we don't have room for her here."

OK, let's just say that. But let's also say that one of the great paradoxes of our time is that two groups most endangered by political Islam, gays and women, somehow still find ways to defend it.

Class dismissed, for your homework, please read the piece on Dr. Wafa Sultan, a Muslim woman who is fed up with the violence and the murder in the name of Islam. She should be the poster child for feminism, a courageous woman who is against violence and wants basic human rights for all women. She should be at Yale speaking out against the tyranny and abuse of the Taliban and Al Qaida. Instead she is trying to stay alive.

Higher education = higher hypocrisy

Every so often I read the lefty blogs and listen NPR or if I am sitting directly under the broadcast tower, I can even tune into Air America's 1,000 watt flamethowing station. Why? I want to know what the left thinks. I want to know what their talking points are so I can pick them out in the MSM and know where they came from.

It would be easy to get upset at the emotional reactions and outbursts of rage and hatred that make up a good portion of the left's media products. I choose to laugh at their rage.

One of the left's most sacred cows is diversity. They hold up diversity as a paramount virtue, unequaled, with the possible exception of personal freedom. Taken at their word, it would seem that our colleges and universities would be a place where all points of view are given the same amount of attention and scrutiny. One would reach that conclusion by listening to the academic elites drone on about how they seek to understand all points of view and celebrate our diverse cultures and values. One would be wrong.

The most current example of the failure in the quest to achieve diversity is found at Yale University in the form of the Taliban spokesman Ramatullah Hashemi, he was given a 40% reduction in tuition fees to attend this prestigious school. Of the thousands of bright and highly achieved students that applied for admission to Yale, it is astonishing that a man with a fourth grade education and admitted ties to a brutal terrorists regime was granted admission. As one alumni of Yale wrote to the university president;
I am a proud alumnae of Yale, and a committed donor and volunteer to the University. It pains me to say that I think, this time, my beloved alma mater screwed up.

Yale admitted Sayeed Rahmatullah Hashemi to Yale, first through its special students program for one semester, and then as a full time student. Was it his 4th grade education that impressed the admissions office the most? Or his high school equivalency degree? Nope--he was admitted because Yalies could apparently "learn" from his experiences as the Taliban's ambassador-at-large.

Yup--the Taliban. You know that group that forced/forces women to wear the burqua? That would publicly execute women in the soccer stadium of Kabul for "sins" like going to the doctor, or walking down
the street, or, god forbid, for wearing nail polish? One of the most violent and intolerant regimes the world has known?

Yeah, that Taliban. And Hashemi should be familiar to you too. If you didn't catch him live on his Taliban World Tour, an excerpt of one of his speeches was in Fahrenheit 9-11. He's the guy who, when a woman in the audience said he should be ashamed for making women wear the burqua, said that "I'm really sorry for your husband. He must have a very difficult time with you." And Hashemi, to this day, is largely unrepentant of the Taliban's policies.

I give Yale and the rest of academia credit for half the battle, they will give a microphone to anyone and set a lectern in front of them to state the most offensive opinions they can find, but only if those opinions run contrary to conservative and dare I say it, traditional American values.

Where are the conservative professors in those Ivy covered halls? Where are the Christian faculty members debating the secular faculty? How can you talk about diversity when your offices are filled from one side of the national and international culture? Where are the Eastern European professors who suffered religious persecution from the Communists? Those who know what a failure communism is because they lived through the brutal reality of it? Do you know where they are? They are kept in the shadows. They are kept in check by the radicals in the student body and more alarmingly, the faculty. If they get too loud, or challenge the liberal status quo, they pay a heavy price of public ridicule and being ostracized by the their peers.

Ask Harvard President Lawrence Summers, who had to resign because he dared to ask a question. Is there a genetic reason why women are do not go into the math and sciences field. Just a question, one that came from an absolute fact, women do not do as well in these fields statistically, is there a reason in how our brains are wired? In stead of refuting the question with substance and research, the radical feminists did what they do best, the went nuts. Don't get too close to our sacred cow, don't even look at it, it may be paper mache, but its a fine looking paper mache cow, don't mess with it. Very mature ladies.

When the academic left attacks Christianity, they say they are looking at the facts and we need to be open to scrutiny or they call us religious zealots. These same people drip with venom when their liberal views are confronted and challenged. Their ideals can only exist in the world of academia, protected from reality, protected from open an honest debate and protected by the diversity police who will attack and slay any foe who dares to point out that you cannot have diversity when you exclude one side from the discussion.

Polls got you down? Relax.

Hat tip to ABP. They have debunked the last few bogus polls using the demographics the pollsters use to show the results for what they are, meaningless. If I took at poll at the Yolo County Republican dinner asking the same questions would my results be scientific? No. Neither are Zogby and AP.
Wrong Track - 67%/Right Track - 30%

Bush Approval Rating - 60% Disapprove/37% Approve

Who Do You Want To Control Congress - 47% - Democrats/36%- Republicans

Sounds bad, huh? Well, as we've said before you (and the GOP leaders) shouldn't use these polls as any kind of indicator as to what could happen in 2006, which is certainly how the MSM will spin it.

But here's what you won't see in the news stories. - the demography of the poll respondents

First, only 79% of respondents were even eligible to vote, and there's no indication of how many of them actually went to the polls in 2004, and the turnout among registered voters who turned out in 2004 was only about 65-70%. So it's very possible that a whopping 45% of the respondents to this poll didn't even vote in the 2004 Presidential election, which means it's highly unlikely they'll turn out for a mid-term election.
I am sure that Tim Russert and the weekend pundits will have this poll front and center. Fake but true. Yet another reason the MSM is becoming antiquated as we speak, I mean type.

Yolo County Republican Party Dinner

I had a wonderful time last night at the Heidrick Center, home of the YCRP's Lincoln Dinner. The speakers were great, dinner was very good and the company was simply outstanding. The headline speaker was our own Secretary of State, Bruce McPherson. Other speakers included, Tony Strickland, candidate for Controller, Keith Richmond, candidate for Treasurer as well as two local Republicans, John Jones running against "Baghdad Mike" Thompson and John Gould Candidate for the 8th District. Doug LaMalfa was also a speaker.

This was my first such dinner and it was a great time. My thanks to YCRP Chair Mark Pruner, Doug Young, Kirby Wells, and all the folks at YCPR Central Committee for putting on an outstanding event.

Jon Stewart, the Bodie Miller of the Oscars

Jon Stewart looses a bit of his humor when he is not taping a live show in front of a group giggling stoners from NYU. His opening monologue fell flat among Hollywood's power elite.
The highlight of the evening was George Clooney explaining to us regular people why the folks in Hollywood are morally superior. How refreshing to know that we need only follow Hollywood's lead to become truly good people. Maybe if had a $3,000 a week coke habit, a few plastic surgeries and was working on my fourth marriage, I could fit in. Probably not.

Sorry George, maybe us regular people are too busy serving on school committees or working with different ministries at our churches or even taking care of our parents to attend a $2,000 a plate AIDS dinner, or Cindy Sheehan rally.

The biggest surprise of the night has to be Crash winning best picture. What happened to Brokeback Mountain? Winning best director took some of the sting out of loosing Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor.

A big thumbs up for Reese Witherspoon winning Best Actress for Walk the Line.

Now good night and good luck all.

A suicide car bomber without the bomb.

I can't wait for the sob story behind the poor tortured soul that lead this Muslim terrorist to smash his rented SUV into a crowd of students at the University of North Carolina.
Taheri-azar, a native of Iran, told investigators he wanted to "avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world."

The MSM will start with interviews of his professors and friends, all saying how shocked they are that Taheri would ever do anything like this. He was just another 'peaceful Muslim', driven to action by the tyranny of George W Bush. Oh, and Dick Cheney too.

My description of Taheri-azar as a Muslim Terrorist may seen extreme to some of you, if you are upset, too damn bad. He is what he is, a terrorist without working knowledge of, or access to explosives. Can you imagine the carnage if he knew enough to fill the SUV with a fertilizer/diesel fuel bomb? Dozens killed, hundreds injured? I hope they put Taheri in prison for life, I also hope there a few Tarheel fans in that prison.

Class is in session, take your seats.

I was driving home today listening to the audio of the tenth grade teacher from Colorado rattling on about how we are same as the Taliban or Al Qaida, we kill people, they kill people, we are no better, they are no worse. It just depends on where you call home. What a load of Bravo Sierra.
"It's our job to conquer the world and make sure they live just like we want them to," Bennish can apparently be heard saying on the tape. "Now I'm not saying that Bush and Hitler are exactly the same, obviously they're not, OK. But (there are) eerie similarities to the tones that they use."

My question is, how many more teachers are filling our kids minds with this kind of left wing coffee house crap? I will bet you lunch at the Burger Barn in Esparto that he is just the tip of the glacier.

This must be a real power trip for people like Jay Bennish, they get to spew all their reasons to ridicule America and get little or no push back to their outrageous statements. It must make you feel like a real man to tell children that America sucks, as he breaks their little bubble of patriotism and fills it with self loathing and doubt. I wonder if he goes home each night and checks Moveon or Kos to make sure he is up to date on the latest reasons why we should hate our nation.

If Mr. Bennish wants to sit behind a desk and rail against our nation, he should apply for a position in the Ethnic Studies department at the University of Colorado. He can chat it up with Ward Churchill.

I am seriously thinking about becoming a teacher. Someone has to teach our children useful information. How to read, write and become proficient in mathematics would be a start. When the children are caught up in those basics, they may should take a few other classes. My classes would be a semester long and have a two part grade structure, attendance and a written final. Here is the Yolo Cowboy curriculum for Junior High and above.

Jobs; How do you get a good one, and how you can get stuck in a bad one?
Logic and Reasoning; A dog will only put his nose on a hot stove once, why are you so dense?
American History; How did we get here? And why did we leave the Old World?
World Civics; Democratic Capitalism is not perfect, but it kicks the crap out of all other forms of government.
Life Lessons; Why some people are mean and why you need to strive toward excellence.
Manners; Why you open doors for women and how to loose a friend by lying.

Those are just off the top of my head, what class would you teach if given the opportunity?

Where is my chocolate horse?

I get all this Mardi Gras stuff confused, what day is 'dress like a South American dictator day?'
