Purple Heart

The Marine in Fallujah, currently under "investigation", had his buddy's body parts sprayed over his body 24 hours earlier, and was hit by shrapnel in the face, from a terrorist "playing dead."

He returned to duty, immediately.

John Kerry, 35 years ago, applied for a purple heart for a less serious wound.

Let the Dollar Fall

Letting the dollar fall as good policy: A quick study of monetary, tax and fiscal policy all working together.

Faced with a recession and then 9/11, the US Fed dropped interest rates and cut taxes. Guess what? It worked. Short recession.

Now the Fed is raising interest rates, which brings about a whole new set of challenges to prevent the economy from stalling.

One important way is to weaken the dollar. This a) increases foreign demand for US goods and b) reduces the trade deficit by reducing US demand for foreign goods. Its a shot into the arm of the US economy.

It's also designed to strike hard at a recalcitrant China. China has maintained an artificially low currency vs. the dollar. That's what fuels Chinese factories, at the expense of US production. The administration's theory is that by dropping the value of the dollar, it will become truly painful for the Chinese to continue to chase the US dollar downward. They will relent and float their currency...and then Chinese goods will rise in price by 50%.

And that helps the US.

Why Not Just Call Her a N*gger B*tch?

Of course, if a Democrat had appointed a black woman as Secretary of State, the headlines would scream: "Democrats Lift African American Woman Through The Glass Ceiling at Foggy Bottom!"

But wait, the administration and the woman are not left wing? Time for the MSM to damn Condi Rice:

Bush Names Hawkish Rice Top U.S. Diplomat

By SCOTT LINDLAW, Associated Press Writer

Nowhere in the article is there any substance or support for labelling Rice as a "Hawk." But the liberal MSM must begin to undermine her. It starts with the headline. They cannot help themselves.

The A.P. tries to destroy her rags-to-power personal story. She has no street or racial or socioeconomic creds, per the A.P.:

Rice... was somewhat sheltered as a youngster in Alabama from the racial conflicts and segregation of the South... when she was 9, a bomb exploded at a Baptist church a few miles away, killing four black girls, one of them a schoolmate.

Left Rant from the Hollywood Email Circuit

I removed the author's identities, although you'll likely get this via chain email in the next couple of days.

The rant below is from an entertainment industry left winger, NOT yours truly BummerDietz:


The REAL America

Fuck the South. Fuck 'em. We should have let them go when they wanted to leave. But no, we had to kill half a million people so they'd stay part of our special Union. Fighting for the right to keep slaves - yeah, THOSE are states we want to keep.

And now what do we get? We're the fucking Arrogant Northeast Liberal Elite? How about this for arrogant: the South is the Real America? The Authentic America. Really?

Cause we fucking founded this country, assholes. Those Founding Fathers you keep going on and on about? All that bullshit about what you think they meant by the Second Amendment giving you the right to keep your assault weapons in the glove compartment because you didn't bother to read the first half of the fucking sentence? Who do you think those wig-wearing lacy-shirt sporting revolutionaries were? They were fucking blue-staters, dickhead. Boston? Philadelphia? New York? Hello? Think there might be a reason all the fucking monuments are up here in our backyard?

No, No. Get the fuck out. We're not letting you visit the Liberty Bell and fucking Plymouth Rock anymore until you get over your real American selves and start respecting those other nine amendments. Who do you think those fucking stripes on the flag are for? Nine are for fucking blue states. And it would be 10 if those Vermonters had gotten their fucking Subarus together and broken off from New York a little earlier. Get it? We started this shit, so don't get all uppity about how real you are, you Johnny-come-lately "Oooooh I've been a state for almost a hundred years " dickheads. Fuck off.

Arrogant? You wanna talk about us Northeasterners being fucking arrogant? What's more American than arrogance? Hmmm? Maybe horsies? I don't think so. Arrogance is the fucking cornerstone of what it means to be American. And I wouldn't be so fucking arrogant if I wasn't paying for your fucking bridges, bitch.

All those Federal taxes you love to hate? It all comes from us and goes to you, so shut up and enjoy your fucking Tennessee Valley Authority electricity and your fancy highways that we paid for. And the next time Florida gets hit by a hurricane you can come crying to us if you want to, but you're the ones who built on a fucking swamp. "Let the Spanish keep it, it's a shithole," we said, but you had to have your fucking orange juice.

The next dickwad who says, "It's your money, not the government's money" is gonna get their ass kicked. Nine of the ten states that get the most federal fucking dollars and pay the least... can you guess? Go on, guess. That's right, motherfucker, they're red states. And eight of the ten states that receive the least and pay the most? It's too easy, asshole, they're blue states. It's not your money, assholes, it's fucking our money. What was that Real American Value you were spouting a minute ago? Self reliance? Try this for self reliance: buy your own fucking stop signs, assholes.

Let's talk about those values for a fucking minute. You and your Southern values can bite my ass because the blue states got the values over you fucking Real Americans every day of the goddamn week. Which state do you think has the lowest divorce rate you marriage-hyping dickwads? Well? Can you guess? It's fucking Massachusetts, the fucking center of the gay marriage universe. Yes, that's right, the state you love to tie around the neck of anyone to the left of Strom Thurmond has the lowest divorce rate in the fucking nation. Think that's just some aberration ? How about this: 9 of the 10 lowest divorce rates are fucking blue states, asshole, and most are in the Northeast, where our values suck so bad. And where are the highest divorce rates? Care to fucking guess? 10 of the top 10 are fucking red-ass we're-so-fucking-moral states. And while Nevada is the worst, the Bible Belt is doing its fucking part.

But two guys making out is going to fucking ruin marriage for you? Yeah? Seems like you're ruining it pretty well on your own, you little bastards. Oh, but that's ok, because you go to church, right? I mean you do, right? Cause we fucking get to hear about it every goddamn year at election time. Yes, we're fascinated by how you get up every Sunday morning and sing, and then you're fucking towers of moral superiority. Yeah, that's a workable formula. Maybe us fucking Northerners don't talk about religion as much as you because we're not so busy sinning, hmmm? Ever think of that , you self-righteous assholes? No, you're too busy erecting giant stone tablets of the Ten Commandments in buildings paid for by the fucking Northeast Liberal Elite. And who has the highest murder rates in the nation? It ain't us up here in the North, assholes.

Well, this gravy train is fucking over . Take your liberal-bashing, federal-tax-leaching, confederate-flag-waving, holier-than-thou, hypocritical bullshit and shove it up your ass.

And no, you can't have your fucking convention in New York next time. Fuck off.

I Want Body Count

Now come the MSM reports of the "Battle of Falluja."

It has been a cakewalk.

Left wingers in the MSM, perhaps stunned by Bush's re-election and the scorn with which their words are now treated, were remarkably muted with their typical dire predictions of "quagmire" and "negligent military campaign." Al Jazeera will have to pick up the slack for a week.

I want body counts of dead islamo-fascists.

I want the world to have access to a US Military website with a running body count, theater by theater, town by town, perhaps delayed 15 minutes like a NASDAQ quote. CNN can run it, if they'd like. Might help their ratings.

I want to see the real-time beheading of the islamo-fascist movement, the fear of which has frozen all politics for 36 months.

I want the images broadcast across the Mideast. The jihadists have brainwashed their youth into thinking that they have a chance of winning, and intimidated citizens that there will be revenge after they win.

In fact, the islamo-fascist jihadists have no chance of even surviving a particular battle. The harsh truth - the body count - will help spread that truth, just as the photos of the dead Hussein kiddies helped.

It is unfortunate, but it is necessary.

I want body count. Because it is effective.

If we are not willing to fight an effective war, then let's not bother to fight the war.

UPDATE: Thank you for the body count. I am glad it numbers in the 4-figures.

The Left Wing Makes This So Easy....

My only post-election lecture:

News item: "Gay rights activists received a rebuke from the Deep South to North Dakota as voters in 11 states approved constitutional amendments to ban same-sex marriage in a clean sweep for proponents of traditional one-man, one-woman unions."


When the left wing of the democratic party does stuff, disasters happen.

The Massachusetts court jammed the gay marriage ssue on a liberal (but not left wing) state legislature, and the SF mayor did the same thing by issuing gay marriage licenses. These disciples of the Left were blind - ridiculously blind - to the reaction that was sure to follow. Outside of the left wing echo chamber, the reaction was 100% predictable.

Since that jamming of the gay marriage "issue," 13 state constitutions have been amended by overwhelming margins. And...a Republican administration was handed its wedge issue on a golden platter

Cf: The Brown vs. Board of Education court, in 1954, who were wise enough to realize that they did not have public opinion behind them for desegregation, and realized that generational change was needed, and did not try to jam their edict. They adopted an approach (them remanded the issue to district courts, to figure out exactly what to do over the next 20 years) that would take a generation to implement; let society adjust, slowly. Let the opposition die out (literally).

Don't jam it.

Those were wise folks. The left wing of the Dem party, today, are hacks, in comparison. Don't believe me - just look at this Gay Marriage case study. I cannot script a bigger backfire/disaster scenario.

And all of it, completely predictable. That is, if you live outside of certain neighborhoods of SF, West Los Angeles and Manhattan.

And, I think - directly or indirectly - it is the reason why Bush carried Ohio and maybe a few other states.

A couple Left Wing members of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, and the SF mayor - set back the "gay rights cause" for a generation. By arrogance and negligence. And...maybe elected Bush.

When a group insists on acting on the insular views of their own echo chamber, disasters happen. These may have been "unintended consequences" - but they were "predicatable consequences." Arrogance and negligence are to blame.
