House claims 150-day success

“We are making progress for the American people, governing effectively and getting results. Our work is not over, it has begun,” said Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer of Maryland. “I’ve been here 26 years; I think this first five months may be the most productive five months that I’ve spent as a member of … Congress,” he said.

Most productive? Other than constantly trashing the president, increasing the ‘cut and run’ rhetoric’, and having lower approvals than even Bush, what exactly have they done? And, of course, PISS ME OFF? If that’s the ‘most productive’ they’ve been, then Congress has seriously been sucking for 26 years, and longer.

While mom in Iraq, boyfriend allegedly killed son

A man beat his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son to death after she left the boy in his care while she was deployed to Iraq, police said.
Cameron was punched in the head, stomach and chest, and whipped with a belt from Tuesday to Wednesday evening, O’Meara said. An autopsy found he died of blunt-force trauma to the abdomen and head, O’Meara said.

There is that special place in hell waiting for SOBs like that. I pray he fries! Yes, I know, not terribly Christian-like, but I do have my limits.

Militia Is Hit by U.S. and British Airstrikes

American, British and Iraqi forces battled fighters from the Mahdi Army militia in Baghdad and the southern port city of Basra on Saturday, with commanders resorting to airstrikes to suppress the militia in both cities, officials said.

There ya go. Bomb the crap outta them, sort it out later.

Report: Bill Clinton Planned to Divorce Hillary

A new book by Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein alleges the former president was on the verge of divorcing his wife, leaving her for “the other woman” now identified as marketing executive Marilyn Jo Jenkins.

The Daily Mail reports that the crisis ended with his wife talking him out of the divorce. She supposedly told a friend, “there are worse things than infidelity,” according to the Mail.

I honestly don’t care!

GOP walks a fine line on immigration bill

The roiling congressional debate over a plan to legalize undocumented immigrants has rekindled a bitter fight within the Republican Party over the best strategy for restoring the GOP to political dominance — with each side accusing the other of following a course that would destroy the party for decades to come.

I’d say odds are the split is between real conservatives and RINOS.

Terror Suspect Extradited to U.S.

An American student arrested last year in London on allegations of providing al-Qaida fighters with equipment to attack American soldiers was in federal custody Saturday.

Syed Hashmi, 27, arrived in the U.S. late Friday, said U.S. Attorney Michael J. Garcia. Hashmi is the first terror suspect extradited to the United States by British authorities.

I’m actually surprised. I would have thought the strong Muslim voice now in Britain would have found a way to prevent his extradition.

Iran ‘uncovers US spy networks’

Iran says it has uncovered several spy networks run by the US and its allies – the occupying forces in Iraq.

The intelligence ministry said it had “succeeded in uncovering, identifying and striking blows” at infiltrators organised by those forces.

They aren’t very good spies, if the can be “uncovered” so easily by the Iranians. The ‘spies’ are probably nothing more than people visiting family.

Hamas: Forget Schalit if leaders are hit

Hamas’s armed wing said Saturday that Israel can forget about the release of kidnapped Cpl. Gilad Schalit if it targets the Islamist movement’s senior leaders.

If they were going to release that young man, wouldn’t they have done it after all the shooting stopped last summer? Is there any proof that he’s even still alive?



  1. Hi,

    The devil that killed the four year old, yeah he should be eliminated…
    The poor mother, while doing her duty, must have been crushed by the news…

  2. I can’t imagine what she must be feeling. The pain must be greater than anything I’ve ever experienced. I don’t see how people can say there is no devil, when obviously, there is extreme evil working in animals like that.
