New link

I've added a new website to my blogroll, which I feel is worth your clicks. The Conservative Princess offers writing intellectual enough to be informative and sassy enough to be interesting. And what better way to introduce our addition than with a post of grand importance regarding Katrina. So head on over to Her Highness' place and see how you can help. Oh, uhm...I hope you like pink.

You're still here?? You click, you click NOW!!

The cost of gas

Yes, gasoline prices suck right now. They probably will for a while. Hell, Fox News just announced that in Atlanta one BP station is charging almost $6 per gallon. Sorry folks, it's supply and demand. Too much demand, not enough supply. It's why we should be drililng up in the Gulf of Mexico and ANWR right now and ease legislation on refineries, but I digress. That's not really the topic of this post. I blogged about this a while back, but with the current situation I thought it was worth reposting.

First off, you could be paying up to $0.535 less in some cases just by eliminating the taxes. (These numbers are from 2002, I'm sure that many are higher now. If anyone has a link to the current rates please send email them to me.) What with an $0.184/gallon federal tax and then throw in the state tax, that's a pretty penny there.

Then consider this, how much is that bottle of water you're drinking right now? Even a gallon bottle of water (the most economical choice) can cost you anywhere from $0.59 up to $2.00, for something that falls out of the sky for crying out loud!!!!!!!

What about that milk you're drinking? I don't know about you, but last time I went to the grocery store I paid almost $4.00/gallon for my milk. That's four bucks per gallon!!! With a family of five youi can imagine how quickly it adds up. Is there a cow shortage somewhere that I don't know about?

Yes, I know it's small consolation when you go to the pump and spend $50 bucks to fillup your tank, but it does help put it into perspective a bit, no?

Edited to add:

I forgot to mention that some states have a minimum price that retailers may charge.

Here is a breakdown of the cost of actually producing the coveted petro.

Hope everyone is ok...

As I'm sure you're all well aware, New Orleans is a disaster area. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who was affected by this storm, living and otherwise.

But I have to ask, why were so many people still in NO? It's not like the friggin' hurricane "snuck up" on you? Everybody knew it was coming, no? Why did these people not leave? And now we have folks looting and killing eachother, like there hasn't been enough of it already. Perhaps out of the ashes of what was once one of the country's most hedonistic culture, some good can come out of this. New Orleans will have to be almost completely rebuilt. New buildings, maybe a new culture, new reputation.....just maybe?

It's true, they really don't want us there....

Here's the proof.

Oh, wait, that says that they....but that would mean....

You figure it out.

The Far Left Must Never Be Allowed to Have Power

And here is why.

Notice the stain in the fron of their pants and the drool haning from the corner of their mouth as they rave about the worlds most beloved mass murderer and communist dictator. The scariest part is, thier numbers are increasing folks, and we're doing little if anything to stop it. In fact, we may as just roll out the red carpet the way things are going in this country. Just a reminder in case you forgot:

1963 Communist Goals

1) US acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war
2) US willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war
3) Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the US would be a demonstration of "moral strength"
4) Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5) Extension of long term loans to Russia and Soviet Satellites
6) Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination
7) Grant recognition of Red China, and admission of Red China to the UN.
8) Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the UN
9) Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the US has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress
10) Allow all Soviet Satellites individual representation in the UN
11) Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the UN as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo)
12) Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party
13) Do away with loyalty oaths
14) Continue giving Russia access to the US Patent Office
15) Capture one or both of the political parties in the US
16) Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism, and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in text books.
18) Gain control of all student newspapers
19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.
22) Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings", substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.
23) Control art critics and directors of art museums. " Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art".
24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography, and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.
26) Present Homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as "normal, natural, and healthy".
27) Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch"
28) Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state"
29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30) Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man".
31) Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of "the big picture:" Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32) Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture - - education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33) Eliminate all laws or procedures, which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34) Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35) Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI
36) Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37) Infiltrate and gain control of big business
38) Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.
39) Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41) Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a "united force" to solve economic, political, or social problems.
43) Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44) Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45) Repeal the Connally Reservation so the US can not prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

If that doesn't convince you, then this probably won't sway you either. In fact if these don't scare the hell out of you then you're probably already well on your way to becoming a murdering commie bastard yourself.

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rent to public purpose.

The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management.

Misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State "income" taxes. We call it "paying your fair share".

3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

Woman in the workplace since the 1920's, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Fedral Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.

Do They Know What Fascism Really Is?

Bohemian Like You enlightens us to the real meaning.

Would you dare to compare your struggles (or any American's) to that of a woman living under the Taliban?

If you want to read the rest you'll actualy have to click on the link to do so.

P.S.-Yes, I'm being abhorrently lazy again today. Eventually I will get around to posting some original material again. Until then, just shut up and enjoy the work of the other fine bloggers I've put up for your enjoyement.

Degeneration of the Human Race

Seriously, come on people....WTF is this crap??

Have we really sunk so low as a society that this many people would stand around and watch this happen without doing anything? Maybe they were all liberals, it would explain the lack of action, not to mention a backbone.

Link Roundup

Being lazy today, so instead of writing my own original post, I'm just going to take the easy way out and hijack material from other folks:

-This Blog is Full of Crap is claiming we should let Cindy meet the president. (Thanks to Bloodspite for finding the link.)

-John Hawkins has a telling interview it O'le Newt (Gingrich that is).

-Spoons has his own thoughts about the Gaza pullout.

-Mike is back from his vacation and still hasn't published the post he promised us.

-La Shawn Barber makes a good point regarding the firing of Michael Graham. I have to say I agree. Remeber Howard Stern?

-Finally, Jay has an excellent post about the ACLU's stand on National Security;
“A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country, by scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us: thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means.”--Thomas Jefferson

Also, in in the middle of his post is a really cool pic that I had to keep.

One final thought, while the moonbats are going on about how Bush and the military are no better than or even worse than Saddam and the terrorists, let me point out one major difference. The United States military stands between terrorists and civilians, the terrorists standhide behind the civilians.

How Does the American Govt React to Illegal Immigration...We Give Them Our Land!!!!!

Disclaimer....before reading any further put as much distance between you and anything breakable as you can, lock up any firearms you may own, take a deep breath and count to ten....then read:

DOUGLAS, Ariz., Aug. 18 - Spent shells litter the ground at what is left of the firing range, and camouflage outfits still hang in a storeroom. Just a few months ago, this ranch was known as Camp Thunderbird, the headquarters of a paramilitary group that promised to use force to keep illegal immigrants from sneaking across the border with Mexico.

A windmill tower in Douglas, Ariz., was a lookout point for members of a group that tried to prevent illegal immigrants from crossing the border.
The New York Times

Camp Thunderbird is two miles from the Mexican border.

Now, in a turnabout, the 70-acre property about two miles from the border is being given to two immigrants whom the group caught trying to enter the United States illegally.

The land transfer is being made to satisfy judgments in a lawsuit in which the immigrants had said that Casey Nethercott, the owner of the ranch and a former leader of the vigilante group Ranch Rescue, had harmed them.

GGGRRRR!!!!!! They come into our country illegally, then are awarded the land of private citizens by our justice system when they get busted??? MR. BUSH GET CONTROL OF THE BORDERS AND GET CONTROL OF THEM NOW YOU SPINELESS JELLY FISH OF A PRESIDENT!!!!!!!! This goes way beyond a travisty, this is the systematic destruction of the American way of life. This is treason.

The anti-American jack-asses at DU are are messing their pants over this one. Poetic justice?? More like tragic irony. One DU poster had a good idea, though it was being sarcastic in it's post:
Maybe you would've felt better if Nethercott had just killed them and buried them out in the desert, that way they couldn't have filed
a lawsuit.

That resolution would have suited me just fine. In fact, this judgement will probably just incite more violence against illegals. How many of them do you think will just disappear now, oh enlightened jack-turd douchebags?

The Surrendur of Israel

Oh yes, you heard me right. It is a said day for the people of Israel right now, when the IDF is forcibly removing their own people from their own property. Imagine it, people come into your country, kill your fellow citizens (or even you and your family) destroy your property and country...then your own government comes in and forcibly removes you from your own homes to make room for the terrorists!!! Way to go Sharon. Me thinks you've been hanging around Bush too long you yellow bellied prick. A real leader would have stood by with his people and pushed the murdering baby killing bastards out of his country, just like a real wartime president would be using these in Iraq instead of pussy-footing around trying to be politically correct about everything while our soldiers are being killed. Newsflash guys, political correctness does not win wars. Just like appeasment doesn't end terrorism. Especially when said terrorists want nothing less than to "push the jews into the sea". Good job Sharone. Good God it's no wonder the War on Terror isn't going as well as it should....look at the guys who are leading it.

You know what really galls me about all this? Except for Fox News and a few non-MSM sources, YOU AREN'T HEARING ABOUT THIS ANYWHERE!!!! Where are the pro_Israel bloggers on this one? Surely I'm not the only one??!!

I was planning on making my return by joining in on the Stop the ACLU Blogburst, but this has gotten me so incensed that I had to put that off until next week. Sorry Jay:(
