probably each morning on the way to work. It's a few minutes out of the way, but, hey! we've all gotta make sacrifices.

Via Michelle Malkin:

Beginning today, all 5,000 of Dunkin' Donuts franchisees will be required to participate in a government database program to verify that workers are here legally. The company was responding to customer concerns about illegal employees. Only 6,200 out of the nation's 8 million employers participate in the screening program, by the way. (Hat tip: Polipundit) The open-borders crowd is up in arms, of course, because enforcing the law = profiling!

MMMM…Dunkin' Donuts….

From On Tap:

My husband sounds just like Angry-GOP-grassroot-voter. And he won't listen to reason either.

I humbly submit some angry voters may not be seeing the forest for the trees…

by: Jim Geraghty on May 12, 2006 – 9:20 am

Permit me to offer a meaner, less civil version of an argument I put forth on TKS recently:

Angry GOP grassroot voter: I’m mad as hell at the Republicans in office! They’re terrible on immigration and spending! I’m staying home this year to teach them a lesson!

Jim: You realize that there’s absolutely no chance that a Democratic-controlled Congress will seriously crack down on illegal immigration.

Angry GOP grassroot voter: Yes, but I’m really angry!

Jim: And you realize that despite your dreams of a paralyzing gridlock, there’s almost no chance that a Democratic-controlled Congress would spend less than a Republican one?

Angry GOP grassroot voter: Yes, but I’m really angry!

Jim: And you realize that putting Robert Byrd in charge of the appropriations committee to fight pork and earmarks is like putting Bill Clinton in charge of babysitting your hot teenage daughter?

Angry GOP grassroot voter: Yes, but I’m really angry!

Jim: And you realize that the Democrats’ first order of business in the House would be impeaching Bush and Cheney simultaneously?

Angry GOP grassroot voter: Yes, but I’m really angry!

Jim: And you realize that any future Supreme Court nominees until at least January 2009 would be whiny moderates who “grow” into liberals once they’re on the Court?

Angry GOP grassroot voter: Yes, but I’m really angry!

Jim: And you realize that the proper stance in the war on terror and/or Iran under Speaker Pelosi is to put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye?

Angry GOP grassroot voter: Yes, but I’m really angry!

Jim: And you realize that you’re also kinda retarded.

A new Shah for Iran? May 1, 2006

Posted by RepublicanWitch in Uncategorized.
1 comment so far

Different River has posted an interview with Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Shah of Iran.  The overthrow of the Shah’s regime and the subsequent rise to power of the hard-line mullahtocracy is directly attributable to Jimmah-worst-president-in-U.S.-history-Carter – there is speculation that he tried to get financial favors for his friends, and when that didn’t work, he was determined to see the Shah removed from power. 

 Here’s a small excerpt, go read the whole thing at Different River for the rest and commentary:

Human Events has a fascinating interview with Reza Pahlavi, son of the late (and deposed) Shah of Iran. The Shah was deposed in 1979, in a revolution that brought the current Islamic/totalitarian regime to power. Here’s what he has to say:

Reza Pahlavi, son of the late Shah of Iran, told the editors of Human Events last week that in the next two to three months he hopes to finalize the organization of a movement aimed at overthrowing the Islamic regime in Tehran and replacing it with a democratic government.

He believes the cause is urgent because of the prospect that Iran may soon develop a nuclear weapon or the U.S. may use military force to preempt that. He hopes to offer a way out of this dilemma: a revolution sparked by massive civil disobedience in which the masses in the streets are backed by elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

Pahlavi, who lives in exile in the United States, said he has been in contact with elements of the Revolutionary Guard that would be willing to play such a role, and activists who could help spark the civil disobedience.

The interview is a must-read.  He goes on to talk about his views on Israel (he doesn’t see Israel as a threat to anyone) and his view that a new Iranian constitution must be based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 

Reading the interview, I am hopeful that there may be a solution to the situation in Iran.  However, if there really is a movement afoot to overthrow the current regime, what would be the purpose of publicizing it now?  I don’t believe that Ahmadinejad is going to soften his stance because of the threat of revolution, if that’s what they’re hoping by releasing it now.  If anything, I think that if he suspects there really is a plot to overthrow him in the works, he’ll just clamp down harder & become more unstable than he already is.

Mouse cesarean? March 31, 2006

How on earth did someone get to this blog by searching the term "mouse cesarean"????

Now I know that in this post, discussing injecting human stem cells into an animal embryo, the term was used in the commentary.

But why, oh why, is someone googling mouse cesareans? 

I guess if Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes can reproduce, and Jessica Simpson can adopt a child (please, somebody stop her!  I have visions of her carrying it around in a Louis Vuitton dog carrier – just another accessory for the hopelessly clueless who have more money than brains), then maybe Mickey & Minnie are out there doing their part for mousedom.

Get those pens out! March 4, 2006

 From A Soldier’s Perspective:

Letter Writing Request

Blogged in Military Perspective by CJ Friday March 3, 2006
 

SGT Rickey Jones
Army SGT Rickey Jones, 21, of Kokomo, Ind; killed Feb. 22 when an improvised explosive device detonated near his Humvee during patrol operations in Hawijah, Iraq 

I am trying to help organize a letter writing campaign to the family of SGT Rickey Jones. As you may have read earlier, their home was vandalized by idiots who wouldn’t understand patriotism if it flew a plane through their bedroom window.

If you own a blog, please post this effort on your respective blogs and ask your readers to post it on their blogs. If you are as disgusted as I am and would like to write a letter to have delivered to this family, please email Lauren (MyWay716@aol.com) for more information. The good people over at Operation Military Pride are helping facilitate the delivery of these letters.

This family recently lost a son and shouldn’t have to deal with people like Fred Phelps and the people responsible for the egging of their home and irreverent phone calls. If you feel the same way I do, please email her and write this family a letter of support and love. Let them know that we appreciate their son’s service and mourn their loss. Let’s show them what America is really made of. This isn’t about whether or not you support the war. This is about common decency for a family that has suffered the ultimate sacrifice…having to bury a child. Thank you in advance. When this is over, I want the post office to have to hire new postmen just to handle the volume. Yes, it’s a challenge, as LinkedinUSAF would say.

Please, please, please – if you can spare a moment to drop this family a note of support, do so.  I can’t imagine the pain of losing a child, much less to have to deal with vandalism and harrassment on top of that.

Some funny stuff… March 3, 2006

From Newsbusters.org: Ginsburg Falls Asleep: Media Pretend Not to Notice

It’s a question that has been asked many times: If Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell asleep during a case, would the media notice? The answer, apparently, is no. On March 1, the Supreme Court heard arguments on the constitutionality of a Texas redistricting plan. One only has to look at the accompanying graphic to see how exciting Justice Ginsburg found the case.  Read the rest.

From Plancks Constant: How the world looks when you’ve created nothing: Islam

The dinocrat poses the question,”How does the modern world look when you have done nothing to help create it, and innovation is a threat to cherished beliefs?” The blog points out that America patents hundreds of thousands of inventions a year whereas the entire Muslim world has only a handful in its entire history. Read the rest.

From One Cosmos: Cultural Sensitivity 101

… I’ve assembled a list of “wise old Islamic sayings” from the book that I think are particularly relevant to our discussion. These are almost “cliches” in the Muslim world, but they are probably new to you:

Sticks and stones will break your bones if your words should ever humiliate me.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try to blame the Jews.

Fool me once, death to you. Fool me twice? I don’t think so.

…and you just know it isn’t gonna be pretty…

From MY Vast Right Wing Conspiracy:

Cindy Sheehan Wants The Troops To Die, Just Won’t Be Protesting

In the frenzy and excitement of my trip to France and Germany, some well meaning pacifists in the area have scheduled me to set up a Camp Casey outside of Landsthul, Germany, in front of the military hospital. I won’t agree to do that.

The Camp Casey movement is pro-peace and pro-soldier. We love our troops so much that we want them to come home alive from the fiasco in the Middle East.

Camp Caseys have been set up all over the USA and the world and they are set up in front of the seats of power. The politicians and the war machine got us into this war, our soldiers are trying to protect each other and do the best that they can do under horrifically difficult circumstances.

The Camp Casey in Germany could be moved to a place where people with decision making power can see it. The soldiers have very little to say in their fates after they enlist (which is an entirely different subject) but especially the ones who have already been wounded in the service of their country…no matter how evil and greed-serving the phony mission is.

Let’s see now, Cindy – Evil?  Greed serving?  Phony?  Awww, you’ve been looking in the mirror again, haven’t you?

About the ports deal… February 27, 2006

I still can’t help but think that there’s alot more to President Bush’s support of the deal with the UAE to take over the British P&O Steam Navigation Company.  As I said recently, I can’t see him supporting this if it were a security problem.

But what reason could there be?  I’ve been thinking it has to do with Iran.  I think that before the end of the year, we will have to step in & stop their nuclear development.  So, I checked a map of the middle-east, and what do I see?

 

 

Look what’s lined up on the Persian Gulf – Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and Oman.

Kuwait?  They’ve been an ally for a long time – let’s hope in continues with the new leadership.

Qatar? U.S. Central Command HQ is there.

Bahrain is home to the American navy’s Fifth Fleet

US signs trade pact with Oman – in January 2006.  And now, the UAE.

I think he’s moving his pieces into position.

 

I’ll spell it “Moslem” from now on… February 27, 2006

From Knowledge is Power:

From wikipedia: 

Until around the late 1980s, the word was commonly spelled Moslem. The spelling has since fallen into disuse. Muslims do not recommend this spelling because it is often pronounced “mawzlem,” which sounds somewhat similar to an Arabic word for “oppressor” (Za’lem in Arabic). The word is pronounced “Mus“-lim in Arabic, but some English dictionaries allow both “Mus“-lim and “Muz“-lim. The word is now most commonly written “Muslim”.

So it sounds like “oppressor”?  I’d think they’d be happy to have it pronounced that way, since dhimmitude for the rest of us is on the agenda.
