"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

"I'm Just Waiting For You"

(© 2005 words & music by Francis Lynn)

It's 3am
And I'm at it again,
Waiting on line for you.

We've chatted before
And you know I need more
'Cause girl, you made me feel brand new.

You're five states away,
But the things that you say
Make me wanna be near you.

How can I explain
When you take all the rain
And change it into morning dew?

I'm just waiting for you.
I'm just waiting for you.
I've got nothing to do.
Only waiting for you.

You said that you care
So I'll always be here
Hoping that you'll come on line.

Your sweet sound will play.
I'll be ready to say,
Girl, I wanna make you mine.

I'm just waiting for you.
I'm just waiting for you.
I've got nothing to do.
Only waiting for you.

How can it be
That a girl I can't see
Has taken my heart away?
It's crazy I know
But I can't let her go
So I'm waiting on line all day.

It's now 4am
And I'm at it again,
Waiting on line for you.

Girl, where can you be?
Don't you know that it's me
Waiting on line for you?

I'm just waiting for you.
I'm just waiting for you.
I've got nothing to do.
Only waiting for you.
I'm just waiting for you.

A Bridge Too Far...Expensive

It's almost as long as the Golden Gate Bridge. It is higher than the Brooklyn Bridge. It will cost $223 million dollars. It is unofficially called "The Bridge to Nowhere." Congress just appropriated the money for it.

Where is it? Who does it serve? What is it? Ah, there's the rub. It is a bridge which will connect the population of Alaska's Gravina Island (population 50) with the giant city of Ketchikan (population 8,000).

As to what it is, well it is one of the biggest pork boondoggles this side of the Big Dig in Boston. Thanks to Rep. Don Young (R), who happens to chair the Transportation committee & who happens to represent the district where the bridge will be built, the $286 billion dollar transportation & highways bill was passed. Don was sure to get his share of the bacon.

The residents of those bustling communities have till now had to travel by ferry, at $6 a clip. But thanks to good ol' Don Young they can now use the money to buy a pack of cigarettes.

This bridge has to be the most unnecessary thing in the world. Considering that New Orleans reconstruction is going to cost a whopping amount, the $223 million would be better spent there. Or feeding the poor. Or housing the homeless.

It just goes to show you, folks, that Congressmen are in it for the pork. Not for the national good or what's best for the people. Congressmen & Senators are thieves, a legalized Mafia, where they cut the booty - aka tax dollars - amongst themselves. It cuts across both parties. There are no red states or blue states with them - it is only a state of green.

Delve deeper into the transportation bill & you'll see what the $286 billion is really being spent on & who's getting the goodies. Well, the term "pork" is fitting, since your elected officials are pigs.

A sample list of pork in the $286 billion bill.

9 1 1

If you have not done so already, please pause for a moment on this page for reflection & rememberance of those innocent victims who died on this day in 2001.

Flight 93 Memorial Disgrace

Those brave souls on United flight 93 who fought the terrorist highjackers over Pennsylvania on 911 & died when the plane crashed, would be appalled to know that the winning memorial design at the site will include a prominent red crescent. The memorial is titled "Crescent of Embrace."

The red crescent is endemic to Islam. Some Islamic countries include it in their flag. And Arab countries have the Red Crescent - the Red Cross of the Middle East. The red crescent is found on mosques & other buildings. It is the symbol of ritual and religious life for Muslims. Fouad El Bayly of Somerset, leader of the Islamic Center of Johnstown, has said Muslims immediately would recognize the symbolism in the design. "The crescent is a symbol of Islamic faith", El Bayly said.

Paul Murdoch is the winning architect. "This is not about any religion per se," Murdoch said in a telephone interview with the Tribune-Democrat in Johnstown. "It's a spiritual space, and a sacred place, but it's open to anyone." The word "crescent," he said, was used as a generic architectural term for a curved line.

A few points. The crescent may be an architectual term, but that does not mean it has to be incorporated into the memorial's title. Murdoch is being disingenuous & dismissive of those who are appalled about the crescent reference. We hear no complaints from the ACLU types. Had Murdoch used a cross or Star of David, would they have maintained their silence? We doubt it. What exactly is the meaning of the title "Crescent of Embrace"? Embrace what - Islam?

This travesty is not unlike the shananigans with the 911 memorial at Ground Zero in New York where an "International Freedom Center" plans to use it as a mutli-cultural center for America bashing (
see early post here), while placing the actual 911 memorial in a small area below ground.

Something is very wrong with this picture. Brave Americans who died fighting terrorists are mocked by the very symbol of the terrorists who caused their death. The 3,000 who were killed in New York are mocked by a "Freedom Center" which puts the 911 memorial in the backyard to its huge complex & plans events whereby the focus is not on 911, but on Abu Gharaib, Guantanamo or any other place, whereby anti-American forces in the world can rant against us in seminars & displays. It is sickening.

The National Park Service has the final decision on whether this design will be used. Call the Superintendent of the Flight 93 National Memorial at (814) 443-4557. Or fax (814) 443-2180.
