Oh! The Freakin' Torture!

Buried way in the back of my hometown paper was a little blurb about the hideous torture that the evil, wicked, lawless, Bush administration is inflicting on Guantanamo Bay detainees.

It seems that the evil, wicked, lawless Bush administration is breaking the Geneva Conventions and harming Gitmo captives by letting them--oh! I can't even say it!--celebrate Ramadan!!!! Yes, you read it right. The Muslims in Gitmo are being allowed to observe the fast during the "sacred" month of Ramadan. In accordance with the observance, the detainees are getting meals only before sunrise and after sunset. During the day they don't eat or drink anything; I think it's supposed to have something to do with learning spiritual discipline.

Can you imagine?! Damn that son of a Bush! How dare he let those prisoners follow their religion! Get me Human Rights Watch! I want the number to Amnesty International! We've got to put an end to this horror! Where are John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Cindy Sheehan, and Charles Rangel when you need them? Why doesn't The New York Times have every one of its reporters all over this? Why isn't Michael Moore down at Gitmo with his camera to get the evidence on film for future generations? Where, oh where, are all the lovers of human diginity, peace, and freedom?!

I'll tell you where they are. They're hiding under a rock, the hypocrites. Oh yes, they'll complain about prisoners being forced to listen to the Red Hot Chili Peppers in a cold room, but when it comes to real mistreatment like this, they're silent as church mice. The suffering the detainees are enduring as they practice their faith behind bars must be excruciating. Now I see why liberals hate Bush. Anyone who'd respect the religious rights of terrorists has got to be Hitler reborn. I'm glad I've finally seen the light.

"F" You, Hugo!

Boycott Citgo filling stations. In the wake of Hugo Chavez's Bush-is-the-devil speech before the UN last Tuesday, I'm calling on all patriotic Americans to boycott Venezuelan owned Citgo.

It's time for the American people to get serious with those who mean us harm. Hugo Chavez has allied himself with Iran, Cuba, and probably every other enemy of our country. He's signed some 80 treaties with Iran, including one where Hugo pledges that an attack on Iran will be regarded as an attack on Venezuela. This man deserves not one more US dollar.

Some of you may think that boycotting Citgo is wrong because a lot of Americans work for the company and the boycott will unfairly hurt them. I understand that concern, but we can't let it stop us from doing what needs to be done. Yes, some Americans may get hurt if we stop buying gas from Citgo, but many more Americans may get hurt if we don't stop. As I said, Hugo Chavez is our enemy. He's sided with people who want a world without America. Giving him our dollars so he can use them against us is insane. It'd be better to buy our gas from much-maligned Exxon, at least it's American.

And while we're on the subject, other oil-producing countries besides Venezuela also hate us. We need to seriously curb our entire consumption of oil so as to deprive our enemies of a lucrative income. It's no better for Iran, Saudi Arabia, or Nigeria to get our dollars than it is for Venezuela to get them. So boycotting Venezuela is just a first step in what I hope will be a sea change in how we Americans live a large part of our lives. Hearing Hugo's rank anti-Americanism on national tv hopefully woke a lot of my fellow Americans up. It certainly woke me up and you can rest assured that Hugo has gotten his last dollar from me!

My Other Blogs

Hey friends! I just thought I'd take a little break from talking about life, politics, and everything else to do some shameless self-promotion. Below are the addresses of my other other blogs--I've now got five altogether!--and I'd like for all my PGZ friends to stop by and have a look. Tell me what you think. Two of the blogs are political, and two are not. My newest blog, Day Care Daze, was just published today so it has only one post on it. Most of my other blogs have fewer posts than PGZ because I have to blog at the library and I don't have the time to post on all of them as often as I'd like. Still, blogging as soooooooo much fun that I didn't want to stop with just one, or even two! So check out my other blogs, and have fun!!!!!!!

Red Hot Chili Torture

I was watching "The O'Reilly Factor" last night and it was reported that The New York Times(TNYT) is accusing the CIA of torturing some Al Quaeda big shot we've captured. And how did the CIA torture him? They put him in a cold room and made him listen to--gulp!--the Red Hot Chili Peppers! NO!!!!!!!!!! Not the Peppers! Anything but that!!!!!!

Well, the music was played a little loudly. And the room was kinda cold, and the Al Quaeda big shot (don't remember his name and don't care to) did get a little uncomfortable and...cry me a fricking river.

Liberals don't want America to win the war against radical Islam(I no longer call it the war on terror). Face it. Whether it's the ACLU fighting against "profiling", or TNYT outing our wiretapping operation, or some lefty pundit complaining about the word "Islamofascist", liberals have chosen sides, and they're not with US. They're savvy enough, however, not to come right out and admit it. Instead, they hide their aiding and abetting of the enemy behind phony concerns about civil liberties, racism or, as in this case, torture.

C'mon! No one in his right mind believes that putting someone in a cold room and making them listen to rock music is torture. Sure, anyone would find that treatment uncomfortable but being uncomfortable and being tortured are two VERY different things. If you doubt that, think about this.

During the siege of the Branch Davidian compound in 1993, the FBI cut off the electricity and, at night, bombarded the compound with bright lights and loud noises, including tapes of rabbits being killed and Nancy Sinatra singing. I'm sure the Davidians inside the compound, especially the children, were quite uncomfortable. Yet I don't recall a single liberal yelling "Torture!" at the Clinton administration. But wasn't the treatment meted out to the Davidians quite similar to the treatment meted out to the Al Quaeda big shot? Both were made uncomfortable, and isn't being made uncomfortable the Left's working definition of "torture"? Not quite.

The Left's definition of "torture" is: being made uncomfortable by the Bush administration or operatives thereof. You see, it's all political. For liberals the real enemy, the only enemy, is George W. Bush. It's he whom they're at war with and they'll ally themselves with anyone, even Islamic militants who kill Americans, if Bush is their nemesis, too. So screaming "Torture!" is really a weapon liberals are using against their enemy. It has nothing to do with actually being against brutally violent interrogation methods. After all, listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers isn't brutal, no matter how loudly they're played.

Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!

A Sorry Tribute

Today is the 5th anniversary of 9/11. I was going to write a nice nonpolitical post just remembering the victims of that horrible attack, then I saw Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes and I got mad as hell. No nonpolitical post today; nope, I'm going to say exactly how I feel about the domestic enemies that are tearing America down.

What got me so riled up? Andy Rooney blamed America for the attacks of five years ago. I'm not lying. At the end of his little commentary he always gives at the end of the show, he said that it might be alright to actually fight those who want to kill us but that it would be better to not behave in ways that make us hated. There you have it. Mr. Rooney might as well have spit on the grave of every victim of 9/11. According to him they, and all Americans, brought the catastrophe on ourselves by acting in ways that displeased the Islamic world.

We are in World War III. Our very survival is at stake. Islamic radicals want nothing less than the end of our civilization and all Andy Rooney and other liberals can do is blame America. That's what they are, the Blame America First cabal. They think that way because they're cowards and because they don't believe America is worth defending. Blaming America for 9/11 absolves these liberals of having to confront the actual killers and protects their pc view of the world, a view in which nonWhite, nonWestern, nonChristian people can't be proactively evil. If they're evil at all it's only to the degree that they've been provoked by us.

Liberals embrace this view because they think it makes them anti-racist, which is far more important to them than patriotism. And frighteningly, they're managing to convert many other Americans to their view. Just a few weeks ago it was revealed that over 30% of Americans now believe that the government either carried out 9/11 or refused to stop it. I was sickened when I heard that. We are in a war for our lives and over a third of the country thinks their own government is the real enemy. That makes me more terrified than I ever was on Sept. 11, 2001.

In the famous poem "In Flanders Fields", the poet urges the reader not to "break faith with us who die". The way to honor the dead, according to the poem, is to continue the fight against the foe. Only then will the dead not have died in vain. Andy Rooney and all his ilk need to read that poignant ode to the fallen of WW I. It tells us exactly what we need to do to honor the fallen of WW III. Sadly, I don't think Mr. Rooney and his Blame America First friends are open to the message of "In Flanders Fields". That's why I fear we may have lost the war already. Some tribute to the dead of 9/11.

This Just In

In my previous post I think I may have misquoted Nancy Pelosi's reaction to Donald Rumsfeld's speech. I'll check this out over the week-end and edit my post if I was wrong. Even liberals should be quoted correctly.

Have a safe and happy Labor Day!

On the Offensive

Finally!!!!!! The Bush administration has finally gotten of it's duff and started to go on the offensive against critics of the Iraq war and those who are totally clueless about what the War on Terror is about. It's about time. George W. Bush may be a lot of things but the one thing he's not is a great communicator and he can no longer afford to wait for history to vindicate him. So I'm really glad that he and others in his administration are using the bully pulpit to get out their view.

Donald Rumsfeld really played hardball in his speech a couple of days ago to a veterans' group. Rummy layed it on the line, without pc doublespeak and without apology. He told the vets and the world that America and the rest of civilized humanity are facing a new fascism as dangerous as Naziism, and that those who don't or won't get it are the same kind of appeasers that allowed Hitler to grow so strong it took a world war to stop him. Rumsfeld didn't mince words, and I love him for it.

Of course the Democrats, feeling that Rummy was talking about them, went ballistic. Howard Dean, king of the "anti-war" crowd, claimed that Republicans were just name-calling because they can't defend their policies. And Nancy Pelosi barked that Rummy's remarks prove how badly the Bush administration needs to end. Sniff, sniff.

If the tough words of Rumsfeld, Cheney, Bush himself, or anyone else in the administration ticks the Dems off it's because they're true. We ARE in a war for our survival. The Islamists mean to DESTROY us; no amount of negotiations will dissuade them from that goal, just as no amount of negotiatons dissuaded Hitler. Anyone who can't or won't see that is another Neville Chamberlain waving another meaningless "peace of paper" and making another meaningless proclamation of "peace in our time". And Rumsfeld is Winston Churchill reborn, giving the world another dose of cold, hard truth that it doesn't want but desperately needs. I just hope and pray it doesn't take another 50 million dead to make the world wake up and GET IT.
