Archive for the ‘Islam – a religion of tolerance and peace’ Category

Geez, I could almost literally just repost something from 2 years ago and nobody would notice it.

Not even if this was the type of blog that people read and click the links.

Let’s start with the peacefully murderous members of the Religion of Peace where it appears that something we haven’t seen in a long time is happening, region-wide war.

First, a drudgetaposition that is very illustrative of the whole, Peace Process farce.

Israel arrests the murderers of a Palestinian teen.

Meet The Proud Mother Of Palestinian Man Accused In Death Of Israeli Teens

 

Slight difference, you have to love.…hate how the Wash Post characterizes the Israelis utterly expected actions in relation to murderers.

The arrests shocked those on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide — Palestinians because many had assumed Israel would never act against its own

 

Assholes. The only people that “shocked” are assholes who hate Israel have a caricature of them that no amount of reality can change.

 

As Obama and the rest of the compassionate set lambast Israel for breaking the ceasefire, we have

Hamas militants in Gaza fired “dozens” of rockets into southern Israel late Monday,

Yeah, that’s what they do. They’re murderous thugocrats who use a religion to justify their thuggery.

 

Speaking of people ‘shocked’ by reality, something we here at DPUD have known about for over  year.

Despite denials by Hamas, there is growing evidence that the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria [ISIS] — also known as “The Islamic State” — has begun operating in the Gaza Strip.

Yeah, that’s been happening for a long time.

So how is America viewed in this most dangerous of times?

Bahrain’s Foreign Ministry said Monday that US Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, Tom Malinowski, is “unwelcome” in the Sunni-ruled kingdom and should “leave immediately.”

We’ve become the Rodney Dangerfield of the world, we get no respect. (Obama’s made sure we deserve none)

In relation to the murderous Religion Of Peacers kidnapping girls in Nigeria, we do have Top Men and Women on the Job!!!!!

twit

 

Okay, I’m officially embarrassed by my nation’s gov’t.

 

In other regional war news, Ukraine!

Another drudgetaposition.

Ukraine

The Ukrainian army is preparing to dislodge Kremlin-backed separatists from Donetsk and Luhansk,

Russia.

Russia may begin a “peacekeeping” operation in Ukraine within the next two days, according to comments made on July 3

 

Yeah, I’m sure that’ll end well. If something happens there, in the middle east or the South China Sea, Obama will take a weak to make a ‘decision” and his ‘decision’ will be to tell everybody, killers and killees, to step back.

 

That’s enough They’re All Gonna Die, let’s do some WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!! stuff that, surprisingly, isn’t global worming caused.

This happened in America, at the Murrieta deal. where we had some mostly-peaceful counter-protestors

peaceful

That’s in America. Seriously.

And we know the gov’t has our backs.

Davis says he reported the destruction or losing of applications (by the VA V) to White House deputy chief of staff, Rob Nabors, and gave him a copy of his whistleblower complaint. He says the complaint was then leaked to the very same people about whom he was complaining.

 

You know, for a place to store their knives.

Speaking of storing knives in our backs, I give you the establishment pricks in the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party in Mississippi.

This site doesn’t have permalinks to each story, but this is the top story today. With pics and links to the FEC stuff.

Cochran campaign staffer Amanda Shook was illegally reimbursed for over $40,000 cash in walking around money during the Republican primary, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings. The payments are described as “Reimbursed Expenses – Campaign Walkers.”

 

$40K buys a lot of votes to beat that stupid idjits from their own, putative, party.

But wait, there’s still more!

A conservative media consultant is accusing the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) of laundering money through a political consulting firm to a shadowy SuperPAC that ran racist negative ads attacking the Tea Party and Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi runoff election.

Lest you have forgotten, this flyer.

gop win!

Yeah, it’s unproven so far, but we know that’s only because the We’re Better and Smarter Than You Party has been watching the Chicag0-Machine assholes running our country and learning how to hide their perfidy.

 

Eh, that’s enough for now, except for this illustration on how we can’t have nice things because of the coalition of humorless leftists and the people who care what they screech.

“Air NZ finds it appropriate to reinvent the in-flight safety video with a celebration of Sports Illustrated 50th anniversary. A safety video is to alert passengers on what to do in an emergency; it should not be an excuse to objectify the sexualized female body,”

The ad in question.

 

Assholes, don’t they want us to be safe?

 

 

 

I started out preferring that people use the term ISIS rather than ISIL. I mean, it rolls off the tongue a lot easier, and it looks like they could be a James Bond villain, or maybe GI-Joe or something.  But I’ve changed my mind.

The final “S” in ISIS hides the extent of ISIL’s ambition.  The “L” stands for the “Levant”, which Wikipedia tells me consists of “Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey (the former Aleppo Vilayet).”

That’s a lot different from just “Iraq and Syria”. If it were just that, we could maybe let them fight it out with the Iraqi and Syrian governments and let the chips fall where they may… and perhaps drop a few bombs afterwards.

The Levant is a much bigger deal, and doesn’t as easily lead to the conclusion that we can ignore them for a while and see what happens.

Riffing off of Veeshir’s post,

So the only way we “shouldn’t have gone into Iraq or Afghanistan”  is if we have decided we’re going to be wimpy loser who hide under our beds when the bad men come out.

I think in the future we will need to weigh the difficulty and likely duration of any military task against the perseverance of the American voting public. Which is to say that we probably won’t be doing things that maybe we should, just because political reality will set in and we’ll bail out.

In a similar vein, I’d like to quote myself on what I termed the “inverse sunk cost fallacy” back in 2007:

Democrats might accuse the Bushies of committing the “sunk cost” fallacy with respect to the Iraq war, particularly not wanting lives already lost to have been lost “in vain”. However, Democrats seem to be committing the opposite fallacy. Dem Presidential candidates are falling over each other trying to get out of Iraq – “it’s not worth another life.”

Oh really? Not one more life? What if it was just one more life to make it all work out, then would it be worth it? What if it was 100, or 500? The Democrats seem to be saying that leaving behind a reasonably stable Iraq just isn’t worth anything at all, which it clearly is. Has it been worth 3000+ KIA’s? I suppose that’s a matter of perspective. Is it worth something? Absolutely.

Clearly Obama did not value what was left him.  He put no effort into a SOFA.  He put no effort into Sunni-Shia political reconciliation.  He allowed Maliki’s government to so abuse the Sunnis that many are running into the arms of the guys who Al Qaeda thought were a bit over-the-top.

Heckuva job, Barry.

Now watch this drive

First, the odd.

This is very odd. I thought all of America was a Constitution Zone, I didn’t realize we had Constitution-free zones.

District Judge Edward Korman, a US federal judge, has reaffirmed an Obama administration policy granting officials the authority to search Americans’ laptops, citing a controversial premise that makes citizens within 100 miles of the border eligible for a police check.

So there’s a 100 mile area along the border where the Constitution does not apply.

How the fuck does a federal judge who is supposed to decide on the Constitutionality of stuff say that the Constitution does not apply in America?

I know it’s not new, but it pisses me off every fucking time. If more Americans knew about it (Minitrue isn’t covering it until we have a GOP pres) I think there’d be some problems. But then, I’m an eternal optimist.

This is very odd, I’m praising sports writers.

Another year, another Good On Ya Baseball Hall of Fame voters.

 

The cheating sacks of shit like Sosa, McGwire, Bonds and the rest of the steroid crew did not make the cut.

I do think McGriff should make it, the crime dog was a good player, but the steroid freaks should not.

 

This is only odd for those who don’t pay attention. They’re talking about how there are good and bad jihadis in Syria.

That idea, of course, is why the middle east sucks so badly. Jordan thinks all jihadis suck so they don’t have the problems Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Yemen and the rest have.

A partial list of jihadis in Syria.

Barish listed the participants as the following: “the Syrian Revolutionaries Front, including the Farouq Brigade, the Union of the Syrian Clans, 11 other factions, and defected fighters from other brigades; the Islamic Front, with the Ahrar al-Sham in Raqqa, Maskana, and Manbaj, Souqour al-Sham, and al-Tawhid, which has a significant presence in Aleppo; the Jihadis’ Army; and the Nour al-Din Zinki Brigade.”

…large groups of the Islamic Front, Ahrar al-Sham, Jabhat al-Nusra, and some FSA brigades are participating in Raqqa battles against ISIS.

It’s a dogs’ breakfast of jihadi assholes all fighting like scorpions in a bottle.

I will say, that ISIS is an even funnier acronym than the MILFs in the Philippines.

First, Isis is a pagan god. I thought jihadis kill people who worship pagan gods.

Second, it’s the name of Archer’s spy group.  I look forward to KAOS (Kill All Onbelievers Squad)  popping up next.

Well, that’s the odd. Let’s get to the sod.  In honor of CO, some grass below the fold. (more…)

Huh, it appears that some murderous clowns are not all bad.

A gunman in a clown suit has shot dead the oldest brother of one of Mexico’s most notorious drug trafficking families at a children’s party in a beach resort town.

Personally, I blame the victim. What was he thinking inviting a clown in the first place?

I have to wonder if this is the first time a non-suicidal hittee paid the hitman who killed him?

 

Unrelated, this is why the Middle East is fucked.

The Many Shades of Hezbollah in a Lebanese publication. Apparently, when they’re not killing babies they run day-care and hospitals.

There is only one shade of Hezbollah blood-red with flecks of brain matter

 

Clown story via i Own the world.

Although Northern Ireland has been relatively peaceful for quite a while now, it looks like TFG has some words of advice on, um, how to keep The Troubles form breaking out again or something:

Likening religious schools to segregation–a racist system that forced blacks to attend different schools and use different facilities than whites in the American South–President Barack Obama told a town hall meeting for youth in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Monday that there should not be Catholic and Protestant schools because such schools cause division.

You know, I can’t help but think that this message of interfaith tolerance–albeit in a slightly altered form–might have a little more resonance in, say, certain parts of London. Or Cairo. Or Damascus.

Yeah.

(h/t)

Looks like this deadly epidemic has spread across the pond:

Local MP Nick Raynsford said he had been told the man attacked in the street was a soldier serving at the Royal Artillery Barracks near the attack.

Mr Raynsford said the soldier had been returning to the barracks after a day out when he was attacked.

London Ambulance Service said one man, believed to be the victim of the machete attack, had died in the incident and two others were injured, one seriously.

Several witnesses described seeing a “beheading” while another described seeing a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt being attacked with a machete-style knife and dumped.

Unfortunately, we may never know what the motive was behind this grisly murder occupational hazard:

The BBC reported sources had told them the men were shouting “Allahu Akbar” as they carried out the attack and had filmed carrying it out.

Yeah, it’s a real mystery.

We’ve got the Project Orca disaster that has already been covered to pieces (with the exception of maybe mentioning that Romney’s staff was informed beforehand, emphatically, by at least one Republican county chair here in Colorado that the names of the pollwatchers absolutely had to be sent to the county chairs to be sent to the county clerk for certification), and now we have a powerful ad about the Benghazi slaughter that was pulled because it wasn’t about the economy.

The ad is even more haunting considering foreign service officer Gregory Hicks testified that he failed to answer his phone because he didn’t recognize the number on caller ID. Not that it would have made a lick of difference how quickly he answered his phone since there was no intention on the part of our federal government to send aid to our consulate.

I’m feeling like Romney did everything he could to throw the election short of giving a donkey a blowjob on national television.

Lots of links, let’s see how many I get to!

First some Mideast Madness, it’s like March Madness with the same amount of rioting but more killing.

Soccerdad at Yourish has a good post on Minitrue loving some Intifada.  It’s nothing new for Minitrue to root for terrorists to send children out front with rocks and gunmen behind to draw fire, and if the Jews don’t kill them some kids, the Palestinians will be more than happy to fix that lack and then scream The Jooooooooooooos!

Soccerdad links to this story about how throwing rocks isn’t peaceful.

IDF special forces arrested ten Palestinian men overnight Friday on suspicion of hurling rocks at an Israeli vehicle and being behind an attack that led the car to veer off the road, hit a truck, and leave a three-year-old girl fighting for her life.

Yeah, but it wasn’t the Jews causing problems so you won’t see that story in a Minitrue outlet, can’t have people getting the wrong idea.

Next door in Lebanon, I have to wonder if any your average non-jihadi, Lebanese are hoping the Marines left some stuff in Tripoli they might want to pick up.

“There are snipers from Jabal Mohsen targeting Bab al-Tabbaneh [residents], and a grenade was thrown from Jabal Mohsen onto Syria Street, which led to retaliation from Bab al-Tabbaneh

Those poor bastards are fucked, but they let Hezbollah and other terrorists get strong to fight Israel and then got all upset about how terrorists act like terrorists so my pity is tempered.

This quote is interesting

However, he added that if a battle erupted in Bab al-Tabbaneh, “it will be a spark for [a war] in all of Lebanon, and this is what the Iranian and Syrian regimes are planning.”

Especially considering this

Syrian air force jets fired four rockets at an uninhabited section of the border with Lebanon on March 18, according to security sources.

I can’t figure that out, is Iran just trying to get the whole middle east blow up and why?

They must also be fucking with Israel.

Lebanon: Israeli jets dropped flare bombs along the coast of the southern city of Tyre Monday, security sources told The Daily Star.

The aircraft launched five flares to illuminate the night sky for reconnaissance purposes, the sources said, adding that the devices extinguished five to 10 minutes after they were released.

In Afghanistan we find another group of jihadis who I’ve never heard of.

Following a deadly suicide bombing in northern Afghanistan that killed 10 people on March 13, Afghan and Coalition forces launched separate raids on March 14 and March 15 targeting three senior members of the al Qaeda-linked Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

Well that can’t be, Obama strangled the last al Quaeda terrorist himself!

This one is kind of funny but I’d be pretty fucking scared if I was the guy running against Chavez’ successor thug.

Venezuela’s acting president said on Wednesday that “far right” figures in the United States were plotting to kill opposition leader Henrique Capriles

“The Americans are going to kill the guy I’m running against!” says the successor thug in chief (former secret police chief). Eh, it’s better than being killed resisting arrest I guess.

High Praise! for Harvey for giving High Praise! to the Real Revo (accept no substitutes!) with this picture

UNinvolved

Heh.

We all know Europeans’ favorite pasttime is going on killing sprees against the “other”, just ask 1,000+ years of Jews, and further, the Germans are some of the best, the 30 Years War was fought primarily in what is now Germany after all and who can forget them trying to take over the world twice last century? Jihadis, that’s who.

More recently, Salafists have issued death threats against German politicians, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “The groups aim to change our society in an aggressive belligerent way so that democracy would be replaced by a Salafist system, and the rule of law replaced by Sharia law.” — Hans-Peter Friedrich, Ministry of the Interior, Germany

Silly jihadis, don’t rile the Germans up, they’re already fucking pissed off at the rest of EUnuchstan sucking their cash and are just looking for someone to kill.

Obama finishes stabbing our eastern European friends in the back to make Tsar Putin I happy.

The United States has effectively canceled the final phase of a Europe-based missile defense system that was fiercely opposed by Russia and cited repeatedly by the Kremlin as a major obstacle to cooperation on nuclear arms reductions and other issues.

When a dictator tells you a defensive system is “provocative”, you know he’s planning invasion routes.

Sorry guys, hopefully the Germans will be on your side when Tsar Putin I tries to rebuild the Soviet Empire.

In Springtime For Hitler news, we see this bit of hilarity.

Krafft was given a pass by reviewers, collectors and critics for his use of swastikas, nazism and Hitler. It was all genius-level kitsch. It belittled the Third Reich, rendering it cheap in scathing mockulatory fashion.

Then a funny thing happened. Krafft was exposed as a white supremacist and holocaust denier.

Does that make it more or less “ironic”?

We’ll seg our ue to America by using another iOwn the World link.  We’ve all seen the new DOD 9 steps for stopping a violent crime without using violence. These folks have provided a handi-doody vid to illustrate the proper method.

That’s hilarious, except it’s what they really expect us to do so it’s not funny at all.

Bwahahahahahahhahaha. The guy is fantastic and the music makes it.

A Trainwreck in Maxwell makes an insightful observation about this story.

Barnegat, N.J.  police arrested a woman after they say she got out of her car, lifted her shirt and bra and exposed her breasts to surveillance cameras.

No picture with the story so, not hot.
Related, DHS MRAPs we’ve been assured are not for the DHS are being spotted on our streets.
Among stated concerns include the obviousness and normalcy of it all.
Eggs-fucking-zactly.
With this bit being a good idea.

“If you see these monsters, photograph them and post the photos on Twitter #DHSMRAP,” he advises, creating a stated intelligence-gathering mission for concerned activists.

“If you see them, report them,” he urges.

Yes.
Totally grassroots protests in Detroit against the governor stepping in to do a real austerity thing, so since austerity now means raising taxes it can’t be called that.
Hundreds of well-organized demonstrators vowing “civil disobedience” will greet Michigan Republican Gov. Rick Snyder’s visit to Cobo Hall in Detroit Monday for an economic summit in order to protest Snyder’s selection of a powerful “emergency manager” to save the city of Detroit from bankruptcy.
You can tell it’s grassroots by how well organized they are, grassroots are always very organized.
The New Puritans.  Less worried about sex but still worried about having unapproved fun.
But puritans haven’t vanished. They’ve merely changed the subject. The expansion of freedom in matters of sex has coincided with a shrinkage in matters of health. New Yorkers would laugh at laws policing sex, but they elected a mayor who has no problem trying to control other physical indulgences.
Hey Bloomberg!
Which is bothering some libertari….libertines like Bill Maher.
Bill Maher blasted New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg Friday saying, “There is something wrong about the 7th richest person in the world, lying in bed at night saying, ’You know what people shouldn’t do? Drink too much Sprite. And I’m going to make that a law.’” Last week, state Supreme Court Judge, Justice Milton Tingling struck down Mayor Bloomberg’s soda ban.
I guess we know whose ox is being gored now.
Last we have this bit of scary hilarity. So Chris Matthews sees a revolution coming and he worries about what’s most important to him.
How does Barack Obama escape this frightening axe coming down sharpl and brutally on his presidency? How does he avoid personal harm when the country rises up in anger?
.
Oh noes! Louis the 17th  might be hurt!

Sorta important, above the post update.

Eh, it didn’t matter much to me, I was just curious and I saw something today that gave me a clue on how to find out.

Aaccording to this Catholic News Agency article,

Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi has confirmed that the Pope intended to take his name from the 13th century aristocrat who left his wealthy family to serve the poor and rebuild the Church.

So, St. Francis of Assisi.

Now, back to the post!

My subscription to spell check ran out so you gets what I gives.

I’m all depressed today, Nicole wrote what I was worried about, I’m becoming an OUTRAGE!!!! monger. Apcray.

Denial is just not strong enough for today and I can’t stay drunk all day. Maybe I should turn to LSD. Eh, I’ll try to see the funny.

This one actually does make me laugh,  It’s a drudge link and he’s talking about Obama slapping around a Dem congresscritter. What makes me laugh is this

Obama was referring to his $1 billion proposal for 15 manufacturing “innovation centers,”

He actually expects people to take that shit seriously.

The article goes on to note this

the details of which are still somewhat hazy.

“Hazy”, yeah, we’ll go with that. It sounds so much better than, “Ridiculous crap that doesn’t mean anything.”

We all saw Cruz make Feinstein look like a fool yesterday. You know it was bad because Andrea Mitchell declared DiFi the winner, but we also see this as another proof they know she looked like the moron she is (Dumber than a box of Boxers!)

Feinstein told Wolf Blitzer she “felt patronized” by the “arrogant” junior senator and had to take some time to cool off afterward.

Awwww, did the mean old man make ems look stupid?

How arrogant and clueless do you have to be to piss off the men who are dedicated to give up their lives for yours?

A former agent blasted President Obama for blaming the Secret Service for the decision to shut down White House tours,

That’s right, Obama arrogant and clueless.

What lefties do understand is indoctrination, they’re only fer it when they’re indoctrinating kids to believe the right things.

I just intro’d bill to prevent kids under 12 from going to gun shows.

Yup, can’t let 12 year olds learn how cool guns are or they might want one.

Also via Say Uncle, … Cold Fury (the exact link is below about sedition) we see this bit of common sense about gun laws.

You cannot “protect” a right while calling for limitations on it.

Preach it brother!

How do you say, “How many divisions does he have?” in Mandarin? (unsafe, NY Times Link)

China congratulated Pope Francis on Thursday on his ascension to the papacy, but also warned the Vatican not to interfere in what China deems to be its internal affairs.

I know who I’m rooting for.

Hmmm, now I have to wonder how to say it in English.

This past Sunday, a Chicago area church sponsored a Second Amendment Sunday filled with “assault” pop-tarts, “combat” cupcakes and a sheet-cake that featured a chocolate semi-automatic Glock handgun with a quote from Jesus that read “Blessed are the peacemakers.”

That last is a very nice touch except they really needed it to be a Colt, not a Glock.

pop-gun

Okay, headlines that just seem fucking ridiculous.

US Can’t Make Dominos Founder Offer Contraceptives To Employees

Seriously, imagine going back to the 50s and showing that article to people. They’d lock you up for your own good.

A question, could you let him off if he promises to take acting lessons?

Headine

Hah!… Iranian Regime TV: Ben Affleck Could Be Hanged For War Crimes

I ask because I could see that question coming up.

Hmmm, this is interesting.

Egyptian media outlets are reporting that a number of Hamas members were involved in the August 2012 attack on an Egyptian military base that killed 16 Egyptian soldiers. The three Hamas members linked to the attack are Ayman Nofal, Mohamed Ibrahim Salah Abu Shamala, and Raed al Attar.

On the one hand, I doubt the Muslim Brotherhood likes Hamas killing people in Egypt without their permission, on the other hand, they were killing the main obstacles to the MB’s takeover of Egypt. Interesting to see how it plays out.

Now sure about this one either.

“The Lebanese cabinet is required to hold an extraordinary meeting to ask the army to deploy along the border,”

Whose side would they be on? So far in Syria we’ve seen homegrown terrorists, al Quaeda, Hezbollah and Syrian military in a dog’s breakfast of a nightmare scenario, I guess whose side they’ll be on depends on how many Hezbollah units are included.

Steyn on Islamophobes getting their blood all over the place.

The attempted murder of an “Islamophobe” is part of the scene in today’s Europe. Among those targeted have been such obvious “right-wing extremists” as secular feminist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, gay hedonist Pim Fortuyn, and coke-snorting anti-monarchist Theo van Gogh. While I was in Copenhagen paying a visit to Lars’s Danish Free Press Society, a young Chechen jihadist opposed to all this outrageous Islamophobia prematurely detonated while assembling his bomb in his hotel room, and we all had a good laugh. But sometimes, as on Lars’s doorstep, the jihad wannabe is less incompetent and gets a little closer.

It being EUnuchstan, they need to provide ‘balance’.

The author Hedegaard is one of the few Danes who is a certified racist, as he some years ago was fined by a High Court for having stated in a blog interview that Muslim fathers rape their children. He was later acquitted by the Supreme Court.

Hmmm, where does one get one of those certificates? And since he was acquitted, isn’t he a “formerly certified racist” as he’d have lost his certified status?

I’m surprised we haven’t seen this bit of sorta good news at Hot Air, Ace, Drudge, Gateway pundit or any of the other news aggregators.

… jumped out a window from the family’s co-op apartment Wednesday afternoon with 10-month-old son Keston in her arms. She died instantly.

I’m always in favor of them failing at the “murder” part of a “murder/suicide” deal.

Now I’m not saying they’re related, but Girls Gone Wild was hounded into bankruptcy and what happens the very next spring break?

Two masked men armed opened fire in a bar on the outskirts of the Mexican tourist resort of Cancun on Thursday, killing six people and wounding five,

While I abhor the violence, as a titty-man, I understand it.

Apparently illegal immigration causes global worming.

It’s one reason I feel it’s urgent that we get real immigration reform, allowing millions to step out of the shadows and on to a broad path toward citizenship. It will help, not hurt, our environmental efforts, and potentially in deep and powerful ways.

The biggest lack in today’s world are people who stand back and say, “You know, that’s pretty fucking ridiculous, maybe you should not say that.”, that’s why it’s often so funny out.

I’ve been wondering something lately, who will be the first con-blogger to be arrested for sedition.  Mike at Cold Fury has a list of some of the people I think are in the running.

I’m figuring it’s between the Emperor and Bob Owens.

I just realized that SMOD should be plan B, FrnakJ notes what we all used to know was Plan A.

So, what do you think should be the future of conservatism? I’m thinking conquering other planets. Going to other planets looks like the only realistic way to escape big government now.

Yup, Heinlein, in Time Enough For Love, I think, said that space travel hurt the Earth as freedom lovers escaped the increasing loss of freedom on Earth.

Just as immigration to America hurt EUnuchstan as all the freedom lovers left for America for generations.

In other words, I’ve been rooting for stuff traveling in the wrong direction! That’s pretty funny.
