Let Freedom Reign

From dictator.... to democracy....

The brave & courageous people of Iraq have spoken. Despite threats against them, despite the predictions of low voter turnout, the Iraqis in overwhelming numbers went to the poles & cast their votes. At least 60% of registered voters have voted. In Saddam's day voter turn out was 100%, but the choices were "Saddam, yes" or "Saddam, no." You voted "no" at your peril.

There are stories of wheelchair bound people struggling for a mile or more to get to their polling stations, old folks being carried to the stations, festive dancing by voters in line to vote. One particular story: a polling station was closed, so people began walking to the next closest station - 13 miles away. First a few walked it, then they soon were joined by hundreds. 13 miles!

Thirty plus people died at the terrorist's hands. But this was far from the "blood in the streets" that they promised to inflict on the voters. Iraqi & American forces deserve credit for the wall of protection they provided. And the Iraqi citizens deserve credit & honor for defying the pig terrorists.

The vote was a resounding success!

Meanwhile, Sen. Ted-the DT's-Kennedy mouthed off 2 days ago about pulling our troops out now & blah, blah, etc. He is an idiot & borderline traitor.

Not to be outdone, Sen. John(Vietnam Vet) Kerry today on tv questioned the historic referendum's legitimacy, saying, "It's hard to say that something is legitimate when a whole portion of the country can't vote and doesn't vote." Kerry also pooh-poohed reports of a surprisingly high 72 percent turnout by Iraqi voters, insisting instead that the election has "gone as expected." Asked if he thought Iraq was now less of a terrorist threat, Kerry said: "No, it's more. And, in fact, I believe the world is less safe today than it was two and a half years ago." This sourgrapes fool doesn't have a word of congratulations for the Iraqis in their historic election. Well, John-I'll never be President-Kerry is history, anyway. So we can ignore the fool.

Then there are the radical libnuts who will never acknowledge any good in Iraq, because they are twisted, mean-spirited little punks who have no grip on reality. Comments from a site called the Democrtic Underground:

"I can't believe the Iraqis are buying into this "democracy" bullshit. They have to know that the Americans don't want them to have power, because they know that Bush is in this for the oil, and now that he finally has it he's not going to let it go. This election is a charade."

"There are people who are fighting the richest and strongest army in the world with whatever they can scrape up in the streets. They fight against all odds to preserve the integrity of their country from an occupying force. What is not to admire and respect about that? Do they make mistakes? I'm sure they do. Do innocent people get hurt? Probably. But blame it on the occupying force who started this war, not the people trying to protest their homeland."

"I just can't see how this is a positive development for the people of Iraq or the peace of the world."

"I had to turn off CNN because they kept focusing on the so-called "voters" and barely mentioned the resistance movements at all."

"Where are the freedom fighters today? Are their voices silenced because some American puppets cast a few ballots?"

"Let's hope the resistance got voted in, or if not, they only increase the fight and take down those who betrayed their country today by voting in this fraud election."

It's nice to know that these socio-pathic clueless clowns are marginalized. They will be left behind on the ash heap of history, while democracy spreads inexoribly throughout the world.

The Mark of Freedom

Tears of Joy - 75 yr old Iraqi weeps after voting......

The Iraqi blogger at Neurotic Iraqi Wife has aptly named the process of indelibly inking a finger after an Iraqi votes as the Mark of Freedom. And so it is. And so it begins. Iraqis are now starting a process which we in the United States have been doing for over two hundred years. A process in the United States which brings out barely 50% of voters in national elections & far less in local elections.

We wish the Iraqis great success in their first steps toward a truly democratic nation.

Iraq Elections- Media Gearing Up For The Kill

The mainstream media couldn't ask for a better venue for its cheery reports of death & mayhem then the upcoming Iraqi elections. They are salivating, chomping at the bit, just waiting to bring its viewers all the bombings, killings & slaughter (they hope) that will fill your t.v. screens in living, blood-red color. The elections promise to bring them more than enough killing - it may even satiate their thirst for gore.

Prepare yourselves for the somber correspondent in Iraq, reporting the latest atrocity, while a back drop plays of horrified Iraqis reeling from a car bombing near an election line. Prepare yourselves to listen to CNN, MSNBC & Fox so-called analysts & experts grimly diagnose the situation, proclaiming in I-told-you-so words that the American war in Iraq is a failure. Prepare yourselves for the never-ending film loops of the same horrific scenes being played over & over & over & over ad nauseam.

The elections in Afghanistan were a non-starter for the media. Big, big disappointment. The anticipated killings & bombings of Afghani voters never happened. There were more murders that day in Brooklyn than in Afghanistan. Their elections were not only unprecedented, but surprisingly peaceful - the Taliban ran tail. This event in itself should have been news. But there was barely a word printed or a correspondent heard about this peaceful transition to democracy. After all, blood sells news. It must be a depressing business to be in - always hoping for the disaster, always looking for the negative side of humanity.

Well, on to Iraq they go now. The media is hoping to more than make up for the fizzle that was found in Afghanistan. Camera ready, lint off the collar....and roll em. Let's pray that what the media lives for does not come at the expense of some one dying.

The Iraqi elections will go forward. There may be killings, maybe many killings, but it will go forward. The media will prefer to jump on a reported election fraud incident or voter complaint or irregularity & play it to death then report on the positives of the election. They forget that with over 200 years of democracy in the United States, Florida, Washington & Wisconsin can still not get it right. Iraq's first ever election will have fraud, cheating, mistakes, controversy. They will then be down at our level. But the media will see to it that the elections in Iraq are invalid if those problems do occur. We now have a greater respect for car salesmen.

TASER Takedown of Tot

Miami-Dade cops respond to the call. The suspect is threatening to injure himself with a piece of glass. What to do...what to do? The cops, professionally trained to handle emergency situations like this, respond. They fire a TASER stun gun toward the suspect. The suspect is hit with a projectile & 50,000 volts of electricity surge through his body. He shakes uncontrollably & drops immediately to the ground. Crisis is ended. The day is saved. Another well-done by the police. The 6 year old suspect regained consciousness shortly after.

You heard right. The cops shot a 6 year old child with 50,000 volts. The child had broken a picture in his school class & threatened to cut his leg with a piece of the glass. And since cops & school educators can't seem to talk to a 6 year old, the child was zapped off his feet. Police defended the decision saying they were happy to talk about use of the Taser rather than talking about injuries the child could have done to himself. The boy's mother told CNN: "If there's three officers, it's nothing to tell a 6-year-old holding a glass, if you feel threatened, 'Hey, here's a piece of candy, hey, here's a toy. Let the glass go."

Within 2 weeks of this incident, another of Miami-Dades' finest came across a 12 year old girl who skipped school. The cop told her he was taking her to school, but on the walk to the police car she ran away. The cop, presumably in a dither whether to use deadly force or not, shot her with a 50,000 volt TASER. That'll teach her, the punk. The cop told CNN that she "continued running even to the point of starting to run into lanes of traffic". So say he. What a lame excuse for electrocuting a 12 year old. As a result of these two incidents, the police are reviewing their policy that prohibits TASER use against pregnant women only. What they really mean is they are getting crap from the public for zapping kids & now they are playing catch-up.

In South Carolina, another cop had to make the tough call to zap a citizen. A visitor to a nursing home refused to leave because the staff wouldn't tell her where her friend was. So they called the cops & a 35 yr old cop responded & sent 50,000 volts into the body of the 75 year old female suspect.

The zapped woman, Margaret Kembrell, told AP she thought her end had come: "I thought I was dying, I could hear myself screaming...I didn't want to hurt her and I can't believe she would hurt me." Kembrell was handcuffed, arrested and charged with trespass and resisting arrest. But the local police chief defended his officer's actions saying she had acted properly. Officer Macon says she only resorted to the Taser when the feisty old-timer tried to thump her - a charge Kembrell denies.

In Chicago a wedding came to a shocking end last month when police tasered both the pregnant bride and her father.

What is wrong with this picture? Electrocuting kids & senior citizens & pregnant women? What the hell is wrong with police department policies? What they hell is wrong with idiotic cops? Is the TASER now going to be a quick fix for everything & replace common sense in police work? The lazy-ass cops' answer to every incident? What the hell is wrong with school educators that they need to call cops to electrocute 6 year olds & handcuff 10 year olds for chewing gum in line? Are there no administrative avenues to handle school issues without making criminals of kids? Or, like the cops, do we have a bunch of lazy-ass educators who just want to shuffle an incident on to the police?

Remember the incident a few months ago of a video of cops in one town assaulting a high school, looking for drugs, & pointing loaded handguns at all the kids, forcing them to the ground & terrifying them in the process? Well, 17 families are suing the hell out of the school & the police. I hope the families win millions of dollars in the suit.

Read earlier posts on this blog about the insane lengths schools go to with their zero tolerance policies. This has to stop. Kids are being criminalized & thrown into the adult world of arrest & court for kid stuff that should be handled in-school. But the only way to stop these idiots is to hit them in the pocketbook. Sue the hell out of them & strike a blow for zero tolerance of idiots.

University of Oregon Bans Patriotism

On complaint of a university employee (pshaw, could it be a libnut prof?), the University of Oregon has banned the familiar "Support Our Troops" ribbons. Another employee had a magnetic ribbon on a university maintenance truck for months until the complaint came in. The State of Oregon prohibits political statements on university property, which is fine. However, the idiots (aka university administrators) stated that it was unclear if the ribbons were a political statement, but to make sure they were in compliance with state regulations all such ribbons would be removed & banned. If you care to express your opinion on this to the university president: mailto:pres@uoregon.edu. Thousands are e-mailing them. Swamp them in protest.

You will get an auto-response from them which says in part, "Some of you may have followed media coverage over the weekend regarding removal of a decal from a state vehicle at the University of Oregon. Decisions about whether employees may or may not put stickers or magnets on state-owned vehicles have nothing to do with the messages. The fact is state vehicles may not have any personal messages affixed to them."

I guess with their line of thinking, a "personal message" supporting the troops during World War II would be prohibited too. But they are playing games now. First they said it was unclear if the ribbon was a political statement. Since that made them look like the jackasses they are, they fall back on the generic "personal messages." But if that is their policy, then every office at the university should be devoid of "personal messages" in the form of yellow ribbons, prevent aids stickers, photos of the kids, etc. Do you think for a moment the offices of the libnut professors are without their "personal messages." The more educated these administrators are the stupider they get.

Hey, Who Dat Guy?

No, not PRESIDENT George Bush. No, no, not the guy in the cowboy hat. Umm, the guy behind the right shoulder of the cowboy. Looks kinda familiar, no? Gee - wonder what he's thinking? Anyone who comes up with the best caption for what good old John Kerry is thinking wins a free ticket to Hillary's 2008 concession speech.

We had a frightening nightmare at American Values. It was Jan 20, 2005 at noon & President-elect John Kerry ( he's a 'Nam vet by the way in case you didn't know)was standing with his hand on the script of a Michael Moore movie, about to take the oath of office as President of the United States. John Edwards, Vice-President & honorary Breck Girl, was standing near him. Every left-wing Hollywood star was there, consuming oxygen that would have been better used for the po' folk in the Red States. Captain Ted Kennedy, commander of the SS Chappaquidick was beaming with drunken delight at the thought of so much liquor at so many Inaugural Balls. Would he have time to drink it all?

Around the world, millions of Kerry supporters watched CNN in anticipation of this historic moment: the Libnuts, the environmental whackos, the animal rights crowd, the abortion on demand folks, the Feminazis, the socialists, the communists, the atheists, the Syrians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, the Germans, the Islamo-fascists, the terrorists, & yes, the French.

With an overwhelming sense of horror & panic, we awoke suddenly in profuse sweat, heart pounding, trying to make sense of where we were & what was happening in those first moments of consciouness. Since we are quick-witted here, we quickly got our wits about us & realized it was just a horrible, horrible nightmare. No one should have to go through such a terror-ridden dream. Calm was restored & we chuckled at what could have been.

Our nightmare ended, but for the libnuts, et al mentioned above, their nightmare has just begun. And like the Energizer bunny, it will go on & on & on for four wonderful, glorious years, thanks to the Inauguration today of George W. Bush, as President of the United States.

Ya gotta love this country!

The 4th Estate as a 5th Column

A Lt. Colonel, serving in Iraq, has an excellent post about the media & its penchant for myopic reporting of the relatively small amount of bad news in Iraq, overblowing it, & ignoring or under reporting the far more good news happening in that country.

Unlike the American news media of WWII, the current ilk of reporting puts patriotism on the back burner & instead prostitutes the notion of balanced reporting for the glory of a global, left-wing agenda in which America is invariably painted as the bad guy, the oppressor, & the bane of world harmony, while at the same time ignoring the brutality, oppression & slaughter of our more enlightened neighbors in the world community.

Mike Wallace, CBS news correspondent & pig excellant, & foreigner Peter Jennings were given a hypothetical Vietnam-era situation in which they were with an enemy patrol & saw an American patrol walking into an ambush by this enemy. They were asked, as reporters, would they warn the Americans or not interfere & just film & report the impending ambush when it happens.

The swines answered that they are, first, reporters & so would not warn the Americans & just film the event. To be fair, Jennings at first said he would try to do something, but, with Wallace's rantings, Jennings then took Wallace's position. When asked if they didn't have a higher duty, patriotic or human, to do something rather then just film, Wallace said flatly and immediately, "No, you don't have a higher duty. No. No. You're a reporter!". He forgets that he is first an American - but, then, maybe he wants to forget that, except for the American dollars he makes. We here at American Values never watch these pond scum on tv.

This is the mind-set & jaundiced reporting of the American news media.

A Mayonnaise Jar & Coffee

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar....and the coffee..

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous “yes”. The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now” said the professor, as the laughter subsided , ”I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life”. The golf balls are the important things - your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite things, that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your education, your house and your car. The sand is everything else - the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups, take your partner out to dinner. There will be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first, the things that really matter. Set your priorties. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled and said, "It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there is always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend."

School Strip-Searches Students

Mainland Preparatory Academy in Texas has decided that $10 is more important then the dignity of the children in its care. They have decided that $10 is worth the effort in humiliating children. They have decided that child abuse doesn't count when it comes to school administrators. (Their web site has an e-mail contact, but the principal's e-mail address is now suddenly missing)

Here's what happened: a girl reported $10 missing in study hall. The school principal, Wilma Green, who also apparently happens to be an idiot, decided to have the ten 11 & 12 yr old students strip-searched to find the missing $10. The boys went with a male teacher & the girls with a female teacher to some location & were told to remove their clothing to their underwear. They were searched for the $10. Even their socks were searched. The money was not found amongst the children.

When all this came out later, many parents were enraged. Some parents pulled their children out of the school altogether. One mother filed a complaint with the police, although the police chief said that he didn't see it as a criminal offense, but that they will investigate.

The lame-brained twit of a so-called principal had excuses for her actions. She said the school has conducted such searches in the past without notifying parents. Then she said, "I never had a complaint." Well, that might be because the parents didn't know about it - ya think? "Nobody objected to it. Most of the kids didn't mind because they wanted to get their name cleared," she said. "It was no different than what the students would be doing when they would be in P.E. We searched everything down to the socks."

The kids didn't mind? Maybe they were too scared to say anything. And this thing about it being no different than what the kids would be doing in P.E. demonstrates that this bitch is clueless. Yeah, right, forced to strip to underwear in an intimidating atmosphere & being physically searched is like P.E. class. Gee - all we ever had was dodge ball.

It is not known at present whether any of the teachers doing the search touched areas on the children they shouldn't have while looking for the precious $10. And maybe the police chief should look a little deeper into it. And maybe the parents should sue the hell out of the school district & Miss Wilma Brain-Dead Green. And maybe they should fire this clown principal who overreacts to a missing $10 & degrades children. She should be searched for a brain & stripped of her position. And the teachers who did the searching - maybe let off with just a bitch-slap. Everyone gets to learn a lesson. Gee, school is great.

Mexican Border Jumping Beings

Comic Book To Help Illegals Cross Border Printed By Mexican Government

The Mexican government has published a "Guide For the Mexican Migrant" (notice it fails to say "illegal" migrant) that tells illegal immigrants how to cross the U.S. border, and how to stay in the U.S. unobtrusively. The 32-page comic book was intended to warn Mexican illegal border crossers about the dangers involved in crossing the U.S.A. border, especially desert areas, say Mexican officials. But despite Mexican government claims that the comic book is intended for the safety of would be border crossers, it is really a transparent attempt to aid illegal immigrants in successfully crossing & remaining. Although the booklet includes statements discouraging people from crossing the border illegally, much of the publication is focused on aiding those who ignore that advice and try to enter the United States. (Complete guide, in Spanish, here)

"Can you imagine if our State Department ... put out a publication saying, 'We don't recommend stealing, but if you are going to be involved in stealing in Mexico anyway, here are some helpful hints on how to jimmy the door?", Rep. J.D. Hayworth said.

“This is not an action of a friendly neighbor. What would the Mexican government say if we encouraged our citizens to violate Mexican law? It is a great example of how hooked Mexico has become on remittances, which are dollars sent home by alien nationals working in the U.S.,” explained Tancredo, Chairman of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. Remittances - the money Mexicans in the U.S. send back to their relatives in Mexico - are now at about $18 Billion dollars a year & account for more income to Mexico than any source other than PEMEX, the state owned Petroleum Company.

From the Guide - Tips & warnings on the dangers of crossing the border:
1. Crossing the river can be very risky, especially if you cross alone and at night..
2. Thick clothing increases your weight when wet and makes it hard to swim or float.
3. If you cross in the desert, try to travel when the heat is not so intense.
4. Salted water helps you retain body fluids. Although you get more thirsty, if you drink salted water the risk of dehydration is lessened.
5. If you get lost follow utility poles, railroad tracks or furrows.
6. If you decide to use the services of "polleros", "coyotes" or "pateros" (smugglers)to cross the border, consider the following precautions to take: Don't let him out of your sight; remember that he's the only one that knows the terrain and therefore is the one that can get you out.


Some helpful tips to avoid detection, once the person has illegally crossed the border:
1. If you drink don't drive, since if you do not have papers you can be detained and deported.
2. Do not drive without a driver's license.
3. Observe traffic signs and signals and use your seatbelt.
4. Do not drive without auto insurance nor drive an unknown vehicle.
5. Do not pick up strangers.
6. Avoid calling attention to yourself, at least while you are arranging your residence papers to live in the United States.
7. The best formula is not to alter your routine of going between work and home.
8. Avoid noisy parties because the neighbors can get upset and call the police, and you could be arrested.
9. Avoid fighting.
10. If you go to a bar or night club and a fight starts, leave immediately, since in the confusion you could be arrested even if you did not do anything wrong.
11. Avoid family or domestic violence.

Maybe it's time that Vicente Fox, President of Mexico, crack down on the rampant corruption in Mexico & focus on improving the country's economy so that its poverty-ridden citizens are not forced to risk death in border crossings in order to seek the promise of a decent life for them & their children. Maybe it's time for a guide book on Vicente's plans for doing this.

Ta Ta, Tamales - We Hardly Knew Ye

If you've been following the last couple of posts, you know that 3 tamales went missing while traveling across country to start a new life on the East Coast. A nationwide alert was sent out about them. Fortunately, the lads were located when we were informed that the Post Office was holding them incommunicado & for ransom.

Unfortunately, as with all tamalenappers, the dastardly Post Office was given their ill-gotten ransom & then proceeded to kill the poor lads. They were found dehydrated & their bodies were beginning to rot. A sad ending for 3 so young & tasty, so full of hope & promise.

A private viewing was held for the dearly departed & then they were put into their final resting place. John Kerry summed it up at the service when he said, "How do you ask a tamale to be the last tamale to die in the Post Office? How do you ask a tamale to be the last tamale to die for a mistake?" John, you brought tears to our eyes with your moving eulogy, although we seem to have heard this before some where. As comfort, we know that these 3 heros are looking down from tamale heaven, each one surrounded by 72 virgin tamales.

If tamales had lips they would be smiling. They have found Paradise.
