Happy Norouz!

Posted by ginnypub on March 20, 2009

It’s that time of year again!

The U.S. Congress is considering a first-of-its kind resolution that congratulates Iranians and Iranian-Americans on the Norouz holiday.

Representative Mike Honda (Democrat-California), who represents voters in a northern California district, authored the resolution, which reads: “[To recognize] the cultural and historical significance of Norouz, expressing appreciation to Iranian Americans for their contributions to society, and wishing Iranian Americans and the people of Iran a prosperous new year.”

Good News Here from the National Iranian American Council (An Iranian American Voice in Washington, D.C.)!

Washington DC – Transcripts of National Iranian American Council and the New America Foundation’s conference on US-Iran relations on February 14, 2007 on Capitol Hill are now available online. The conference, titled “US-Iran relations: collision, stand-off, or convergence?” featured numerous high-power speakers, including Professor Francis Fukuyama, Congresswoman Jane Harman, Colonel Larry Wilkerson, Colin Powell’s Chief of Staff, Flynt Leverett of the New America Foundation, Bruno Pellaud, former deputy chief of safe guards at the IAEA, Daniel Levy, former advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and Trita Parsi, President of NIAC. The conference tackled several aspects of the ongoing US-Iran debate, including the imperative of reducing US-Iran tensions in order to aid Iran’s internal pro-democracy forces, the superiority of inspections versus suspension as a non-proliferation tool, and previously undisclosed details about the May 2003 Iranian negotiation offer to the US.

 

The conference, part of NIAC’s US-Iran Policy Program, was sponsored by the Colombe Foundation, Kenbe Foundation, Open Society Institute, Ploughshares Fund, and Pluralism Fund. Through the US-Iran Policy Program, NIAC will hold two such conferences on Capitol Hill per year, in addition to several Congressional Breakfasts and Staff briefings.

How’s It Hangin’, Buffett (not Jimmy)?

Posted by ginnypub on March 10, 2009

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett put almost all his eggs in one basket for the past 2 years.

buffetcampcontribs

How has your investment paid off, Warren?

Oh, I see.

The man considered by many to be the greatest investor of all time just had his worst year ever.

Mr. Buffett, in his annual letter, read closely by shareholders and nonshareholders alike, reported Berkshire in 2008 lost 9.6% in book value per share, a common metric Berkshire uses to track performance. That marks the biggest decline since Mr. Buffett took over in 1965, when it was a family-run East Coast textile maker.

Mr. Buffett conceded he “did some dumb things.”

What about the future, Warren?

Unemployment rate in U.S. will go well above its current levels before the downturn ends.

Inflation has the “potential” to be worse than the 1970s.

How did this happen, Warren?

“In my view, it’s an economic war, and–I don’t think anybody on December 7th would have said a `war is a terrible thing to waste, and therefore we’re going to try and ram through a whole bunch of things and–but we expect to–expect the other party to unite behind us on the–on the big problem.’ It’s just a mistake, I think, when you’ve got one overriding objective, to try and muddle it up with a bunch of other things.”

This sounds dire, Warren. What are you doing to overcome “the dumb things” you did in 2008?

Oh, I see.

Approval Down, Disapproval Up

Posted by ginnypub on February 23, 2009

Of course, it’s the fault of the “chattering class” on “cable television”. Barry Soetoro, again today, blamed “cable television” for people not supporting his Massive New Government Spending Bill dressed up as “economic stimulus”.

Now we know the reason for Barry’s overall approval being down and overall disapproval being up. Americans are too stupid to think for themselves.

Hey, Barry. Here’s a news flash. If it walks like a duck…..

YEAH, BIBI!! (Updated)

Posted by ginnypub on February 20, 2009

**Bumped up for update** (Below the snip)

The Likud Party is BAAACK and strong! Tuesday’s primaries in Israel bring in Moshe Feiglin, Benny Begin, and Moshe Ayalon, among others. Of course the watered-down to milquetoast, Kadima Party is having a hissy fit. Prime Minister Ehud (maybe if we give islamo-fascists the rest of Israel’s land, they’ll stop killing our children) Olmert said,  “If Bibi, Begin, Ya’alon and Feiglin come to power, it will cause significant diplomatic damage to Israel.” Uh-huh, that’s the POINT, Ehud, or as I like to call you, the head of the John McCain wing of the Kadima/Likuds. You keep giving terrorists land and getting dead Israeli children in return. It’s WAY past time for “significant diplomatic damage”!

(snip)

 

UPDATE:

From the Jerusalum Post:

After the failure of his last-ditch effort to muster Kadima leader Tzipi Livni’s support for a unity government on Friday, President Shimon Peres formally entrusted Likud chairman Binyamin Netanyahu with the task of building a coalition.

Earlier, after emerging from a meeting with Peres, Livni announced that she had no intention of joining a broad coalition under Netanyahu, despite the Likud chairman’s assertion that he was willing to “go to great lengths” in order to induce Kadima to join his government.

“It appears that the coalition which has been formed in recent days lacks diplomatic vision,” Livni said after the meeting. The Kadima leader rejected the president’s plea that she reconsider joining a coalition comprised of the three largest parties – Kadima, Likud and Israeli Beiteinu – and asserted that a “broad coalition is worthless if it is not governed by values.”

Peres realizes the need for strength at this time in history. Since Barry Soetoro and his Brown Shirts have decided to “stand with” the enemies of Israel and the U.S., the “the political winds” have shifted “in an ugly direction“.

Shabtai Shavit, former chief of the Mossad intelligence agency, warned just 2 days ago: “I don’t believe there is a political solution which can be achieved through negotiations with Iran. My concern is that until Obama finishes his learning curve of the subject, the Iranians are going to have maybe the first or even more nuclear bombs.”

NYT, one day ago:

In their first appraisal of Iran’s nuclear program since President Obama took office, atomic inspectors have found that Iran recently understated by a third how much uranium it has enriched, United Nations officials said Thursday.

The officials also declared for the first time that the amount of uranium that Tehran had now amassed — more than a ton — was sufficient, with added purification, to make an atom bomb.

YEAH, BIBI!! NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON!

Perriello and Haskells Stimulating the 5th

Posted by ginnypub on February 19, 2009

U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA-5th), founder of Res Publica (If you aren’t a socialist, you’re selfish) and Avaaz (We hate Jews and you should, too), which is a spin-off combining Res Publica and MoveOn (We’re traitors and you should hate America, too), spoke at Martinsville High School yesterday.

The Martinsville Bulletin, owned by Robert and Elizabeth Haskell, who award grants to ACORN and convicted domestic terrorist Bernadine Dohrn,  among others, ran a story today about Perriello’s visit.

“Sizing up the stimulus”-Perriello tells bill’s impact

If federal, state and local officials work together to use the funds from the $787 billion stimulus bill, the economy will begin to recover from this “very, very serious crisis,” 5th District U.S. Rep. Tom Perriello said Wednesday.

Perriello spoke at a forum at Martinsville High School. He explained some of the highlights of the bill and how Virginians will be helped, and then fielded questions about the stimulus bill and other subjects from more than a dozen people. Nearly 100 people attended the event, which lasted more than an hour. Here’s a photo of the “nearly 100 people”.

According to Perriello and a press release from his office, the stimulus bill:

• Provides tax relief for families and small businesses. More than 35 percent of the package will provide direct tax relief to 95 percent of American workers and spur job growth for businesses. (About that “direct tax relief”…It was cut from $500 for individuals and $1000 to couples down to $400 and $800. For 6 months, June-Dec, 2009, workers will get $13 more in their paychecks per week.  In January 2010, that falls to $8.)

According to a new White House estimate, 7,800 jobs will be created or saved in the 5th District as a result of this stimulus package, 200 more than estimated earlier, said Jessica Barba, Perriello’s press secretary. (About those jobs…Small business tax benefit was gutted from $67 billion to only $4 billion. In place of relief for the little guy, a $3.2 billion tax break for General Motors Corp was added.)

Nita Hairston of Henry County was at the forum with her sons Benton and Bryant Hairston, 10th-graders at Martinsville High School who are in the JROTC program at the school. They want to go to Virginia Military Institute and enter the military.

She asked Perriello about the war in Afghanistan. Perriello said the United States needs a “force commitment” but needs to articulate its strategy and end goal. (Mrs. Hairston, you’ll notice your question wasn’t answered. Here’s why:

Veterans: Nearly all items for Veterans Affairs were reduced and the $2 billion the Senate wanted for VA construction was wiped out altogether. The VA did get one thing: $1 billion for medical facilities renovation and retooling.

Military construction: Cut and put into a general pot, a change from targeted money for each branch of the services. Army construction alone went from $600 million in the Senate and $900 million in the House to $180 million in the final bill. But negotiators compromised over a general military construction fund — the House wanted $3.75 billion while the Senate allocated $118 million and settled on $1.45 billion for all services. )

 

 

FBI: Senate had allocated $475 million but all was cut out of final bill.

Moral Ambiguity

Posted by ginnypub on February 17, 2009

The Kinsey Report: Sex Habits of American Men written by zoologist Alfred Kinsey was published in 1948. On 16May48, the NYT loved it. On 18July65, it published “A new Kinsey report challenges the popular conceptions of sexual criminals as crazed by narcotics, aroused by pornography or goaded by senile desire. …”

The Kinsey Report includes a lot of “findings” from “studies”, but the most notable “study” was on infants and children.

…. before the arrival of orgasm, will fight away from the partner and may make violent attempts to avoid climax although they derive definite pleasure from the situation.

Kinsey used his ” medical and scientific data” to separate sex and morality. He found no reason to prohibit incest or adult-child sex, and that laws punishing and prohibiting these acts should be overturned.

In 1969 NAMBLA was founded.

The ACLU represents infant and child rapists in court pro bono because it is a Constitution Right of adults to rape infants and children. It falls under the First Amendment’s “free speech”.

For 25 years Congressional Democrats, most notably Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MASS), blocked legislation for a national sex offender registry. On 27July06, Pres. George W. Bush was able to finally sign the “Adam Walsh Act into law. 

“Constitution” supporters have been trying to have the law overturned. Groups such as Constitutional Fights (founded by a “Reagan Conservative”) stay abreast of the constant struggle to legalize infant and child rape. (Note to child rape supporters: Not in a million years would anyone believe any of you are a “Reagan Conservative”.)

Brent Bozell writes in his 16Feb09 column about a Kinsey wannabe:

Daniel Bergner isn’t the devil’s advocate, but he is a pervert’s apologist. This author and contributor to the New York Times Magazine has a new book titled “The Other Side of Desire” which argues it is unfair to judge bizarre, harmful, and disgusting sexual attractions as bizarre, harmful, and disgusting.

 

Bergner’s book focuses on four real-life fetishists: a husband with a secret foot fetish, a man with an attraction to amputees, a vicious female sadist, and a man who longs for sex with his 12-year-old stepdaughter. Book reviews and interviews suggest he hasn’t written a book to judge the fetishists, but rather to judge the society that would rush to condemn their drives and behaviors.

Bergner tries to define deviancy down by quoting one of his experts, a New York psychiatrist who quips, “perversion can be defined as the sex that you like and I don’t.”

Unsurprisingly, Bergner has the support of many book critics. Media outlets enjoyed promoting the book by picking out and running with the most salacious tidbits. The book contains several subplots beneath its four primary characters. A Bergner interview with Salon.com began by introducing readers to one of the minor characters in the book, a Wall Street retiree wearing a red latex bodysuit and a black hood who is strapped to a table while electric shocks are surged into his genitals.

The USA 2009: “Progressive” haven for those who think that infant and child rape isn’t torture; it’s to provide sexual pleasure for the infant or child. Electrocution of the genitals provides sexual pleasure unless it is used on a serial mass murdering terrorist, whereby it is torture.

Just For You, CATO

Posted by ginnypub on February 13, 2009

I like posting at the Martinsville Media Forum. There’s a mix of everything there; Cousin Eddies, Libertarians, Pseudo-intellectuals, Christian Conservatives, Communist Party believers, really nice people, really cruel people and some just plain regular folk. Bill Wyatt, the owner of Martinsville Media, has some good rules there about personal attacks and cursing. Since that’s what I’m about to do, I’ve decided to post a response to this post here.

A new thread started by a regular poster, CATO, today: (note: While you’re reading through the misspellings…CATO is an ATTORNEY.)

Torture: What do we do?

With the statements of Conyers, Leahy, etc…it is clear that the Congress will do some sort of investigation into Bush Era policies with particular attention to allegations of rendition, secret prisons and torture. Quite frankly, I wish the relevany Chairman were a little more pragmatic instead of approaching the left wing fringe, but I beleive that an investigation is proper.

Here is what the ACLU is finidng out through FOIA requests:

http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Unredacted_documents_reveal_prisoners_tortured_to_0212.html

Note the article provides links to some of the actual documents. Some highlights are:

“In both cases, for example, [prisoners] were handcuffed to fixed objects above their heads in order to keep them awake,” reads the document. “Additionally, interrogations in both incidents involved the use of physical violence, including kicking, beating, and the use of “compliance blows” which involved striking the [prisoners] legs with the [interrogators] knees. In both cases, blunt force trauma to the legs was implicated in the deaths. In one case, a pulmonary embolism developed as a consequence of the blunt force trauma, and in the other case pre-existing coronary artery disease was complicated by the blunt force trauma.”

“[An] investigation launched after allegations that an Iraqi prisoner was subjected to torture and abuse at ‘The Disco’ (located in the Special Operations Force Compound in Mosul Airfield, Mosul, Iraq). The abuse consisted of filling his jumpsuit with ice, then hosing him down and making him stand for long periods of time, sometimes in front of an air conditioner; forcing him to lay down and drink water until he gagged, vomited or choked, having his head banged against a hot steel plate while hooded and interrogated; being forced to do leg lifts with bags of ice placed on his ankles, and being kicked when he could not do more.

I realize this will likely deteriorate into partisan idiocy, but this has to be investigated. In my mind, the focus should be on the POLICYMAKERS such as John Yoo, Gonzales, Addington, etc..and not on the boots on the ground. I was in the military long enough to know NCOs dont go rogue. They folow orders. I have never believed the “official” version of Abu Gharib and the lambs they offered for slaughter.

This is too important to sweep under the rug.

First of all, for anyone with so much shit for brains they don’t know what torture is, let me explain it:

THIS IS TORTURE

christian_beheading

This little girl is wearing her school uniform. She was kidnapped, tortured and beheaded because she is a Christian. The “Bush Era Policy-makers” didn’t do this.

nick-berg-beheading

This is Nick Berg’s head. It’s a still shot from the video his murderers posted of their great accomplishment. Ever see how “The Lambs” behead someone, dumbass? They don’t use a sword and whack it off. They slowly saw it off with a knife. Can you hear Nick Berg screaming, ass-wipe? I hope so. I hope it gets so loud the next time you blame America first, it keeps you awake at night. The “Bush Era Policy-makers” didn’t do this.

fallujah_captures_soldiers_murdered12

This is an American, dickhead. He was someone’s dad, son and husband. He was burned alive, dismembered and hung up like a piece of meat. Can you imagine what his body must smell like? I hope you can. I hope everytime you shower with some girly soap and splash on your “Eau de Big Pussy” cologne, you smell HIM instead. The “Bush Era Policy-makers” did this.

911jump

How difficult would it be to be given the choice of being incinerated or jump from a skyscraper? I hope the next time you’re making the decision to defend your “lambs”, you think about this man, maggot. The “Bush Era Policy-makers” didn’t do this.

9119ni1

What kind of torture would it be to sift through the fumes of toxic jet engine fuel, the smell of burnt flesh and tons of skyscraper cement looking for any scrap of your best friend? You’ve laughed with him and cried with him. He was there for your son’s christening and your daughter’s wedding. You’re the one he called when his mother died. You saw him just a couple of hours ago. What if it was 366 of your best friends, asshole? The “Bush Era Policy-makers” didn’t do this.

How many people in the United States of America do you think give one rat’s ass if “the lambs” get water poured up their noses, are subjected to rock music or deprived of 8 hours sleep? I would say, if you take out the old hippies, socialists, progressives and members of the peaceful religion of Islam, the number is ZERO.

I think Guantanamo was a mistake, also. The ones caught on the battlefield should have been tortured until useful information was extracted and verified and then killed. A good start would have been John Walker Lindh.

While we’re on the subject of torture, let us not forget infants, toddlers and children brutally raped, tortured and video-taped by sick, repulsive, wastes of human space? ACLU fan that you are, surely it must please you that it isn’t only Islamic serial mass murderers these slimes ardently support, but child rapists, also. The ACLU represents both groups pro bono.

Don’t bother wrapping yourself in the “moral authority” of an amoral group with the idiotic whining of “But if we totuuurrre, we’re no better than theemmm”…..

You and the ACLU are not just “no better than them”. You’re worse.

Nancy Pelosi’s Sonny Drysdale

Posted by ginnypub on February 13, 2009

Remember Sonny Drysdale on the Beverly Hillbillies? He was a 40-yr-old perennial college student and prissy mommy’s boy. Mommy always took care of him.

sonnydrysdalemommymrsdrysdale

Speaker of the U.S. House of Represetatives, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has her own Sonny. His name is Paul Pelosi, Jr. Mommy will pay you to play with Little Paulie.

Little Paulie is an adviser for AirPatrol Corporation and “founding member” of Cisco Connected Urban Development. Cisco also employs Dr. Kaveh Safavi who developed a fully automated electronic medical record system.How much money is Mommy taking out of your pockets, your children’s pockets and your grandchildren’s pockets to pay for playing with Little Paulie?

90 BILLION DOLLARS**

She calls it the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Take This Card…Take My House

Posted by ginnypub on February 11, 2009

Yesterday’s stop was in Florida in the  American Tour of the  Barry Soetoro’s Squirrel Revival of the First Self-Righteous Church.

 By some miracle, a 61-yr-old homeless cancer patient (living in a pickup truck for a year) named Henrietta Hughes was able to obtain an advance ticket,  procure a front-row seat  and (this is REALLY a miracle) was called upon by Brother Barry himself!

A staffer later gave her a card to the head of the housing authority and she was told he would help her.

“That was my desire,” the 61-year-old woman said as she cried. “I said I just pray to the Lord.”

I haven’t heard yet if Henrietta has decided to keep the card to the Housing Authority that already has her on a 2-yr waiting list or the 3-bedroom house. I also haven’t heard yet if Henrietta has learned the difference between Fake Messiah Bullshit and Christian Conservative True Grit.
