Andy Rooney said on "60 Minutes" a few weeks back:
I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America. Try to have things like the United Caucasian College Fund, Cloud Magazine, White Entertainment Television, or Miss White America; and see what happens...
Jesse Jackson will be knocking down your door.
Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.
I believe they are called the Boy Scouts for a reason, that is why there are no girls allowed. Girls belong in the Girl Scouts! ARE YOU LISTENING MARTHA BURKE?
I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.
When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability.
I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!
My father and grandfather didn't die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come over and disrespect ours. I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.
We did not go to the aid of certain foreign countries and risk our lives in wars to defend their freedoms, so that decades later they could come over here and tell us our constitution is a living document; and open to their interpretations.
I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.
I know pro wrestling is fake, but so are movies and television. That doesn't stop you from watching them.
I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it ticks you off, go and invent the next operating system that's better, and put your name on the building.
It doesn't take a whole village to raise a child right, but it does take a parent to stand up to the kid; and smack their little behinds when necessary, and say "NO!"
I think tattoos and piercing are fine if you want them, but please don't pretend they are a political statement.And, please, stay home until that new lip ring heals. I don't want to look at your ugly infected mouth as you serve me French fries!
I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa;so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else.
And if you don't like my point of view, tough...

I think that it is quite interesting how liberal Democrats accuse Republicans almost daily of being indifferent, biased, racist, prejudiced, and the list goes on and on and on of the continuous drool and spew that is thrown at Republicans every single day. BUT, it is completely oky doky for these same schmucks to be indifferent, biased, and racist when it comes to approving judges for the federal courts that have been nominated by the President.
All very qualified candidates to the bench, roadblocked by the liberal, socialist Democrats because of religious beliefs. Plain and simple. No other way to put it. Democrats are in fear of the Presidential nominees to the courts because they realize that the courts are their LAST hope of ever advancing their destructive, socialist agenda on unsuspecting Americans.
They realize that they have lost all power in both the Executive and legislative branches of government with absolutely NO HOPE for them to pass any of their gun control or socialist bills that make Americans dependent upon them for every need in their lives. Instead, they have resorted to legislating from the bench.
Liberal Judges haven taken upon themselves to go beyond their powers of the bench and begin advancing the agenda of the liberal Democrats from the bench, thus extending their powers beyond what the Constitution had intended.
The Constitution gave all three branches of government; Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, "Seperate But Equal" powers. It never intended for the Judicial branch to be the "Overlord" over the other two branches. In todays world, when the Liberal Democrats cannot pass one of their socialist laws, they bypass the will of the people and rely on their Liberal, Socialist Judges that they put on the bench and call upon them to inflict their "Laws" upon us, and all with the help of one of the biggest Communist organizations that exists in America today!...The A.C.L.U.
That is why the Liberal Democrats have been obstructing the legislative process in approving Judges to the federal bench. IT IS THEIR LAST BASTION OF POWER AND THEY DON'T WANT TO LOSE IT! That is why they will lie, cheat and steal to fool Americans into believing in what they are doing by roadblocking the President.
Always remember, Liberal Democrats are not looking out for the "working man". They are only intersted in regaining their power and using it to destroy the American Dream and create another Communist nation out of our Grand Republic.
THE ROGUE JEW

I love my mom to death, she is the most wonderful woman in the world after having raised a pain in the butt like me but I must say, her response was typical of liberals when they are uninformed and unable to debate the issue at hand.
We were discussing funding for education and the war in Iraq and I was stating that the federal government is spending a record amount of tax dollars on education, much to the lauding of Sen. Ted "hic" Kennedy when him and President Bush stood side by side on the White House lawn and signed a Education bill together. I told my mom and others in the conversation that much of the money for education is WASTED at the state and local level, with the ungodly high salaries that school administrators are paid along with their benefit packages with luxary cars and stock portfolios and all. That is where it all fell apart.
Obviously my mom was not as learned and informed as I am on the issue of education funding, so instead of asking questions or discussing further, she became frustrated that she could not defend her liberal stance and the liberals she defends so she ended the discussion by resorting to name calling and bringing the discussion to a screaching halt.
It is not the first time I had seen this reaction from liberals. Tyrone Bynum in Grand Rapids, Michigan responds the same way to people who call in to his show and have differing opinions. Rather then discuss, he and his followers of zombie liberals in their frustration and hate, respond with name calling and insults.
Mom, if you read this, I do love you with all my heart, but I cannot in good faith have the same political beliefs as you. For that I will not apologize, but I will be more tolerant in the future and refrain from discussing politics with you. As for all other liberals....I'm not going to be so nice. I love confrontation and arguing, I'm coming after the rest of ya....
Well, it's nice to be home again and at the keyboard. I missed all of my friends and readers.

The American media on the other hand, upon hearing that the very conservative Ratzinger had been elected Pope, was already setting there sights on the guy.
MSNBC was perhaps the worst as they stood outside of St. Patricks Cathedral in New York interviewing ONLY people who did not agree with the selection of Ratzinger.
The new Pope was a close confidante of Pope John Paul II and is very adherent to the strict line that the Catholic Church has taken on Abortion and Homosexuality and this of course infuriates the liberal left.
They are already commenting on how they hope that Pope Benedict XVI does more to reach out to the more moderate arm of the church rather then take the strict line and "alienate" them.
I feel that the Cardinals of the Church have sent a message to the leftist liberal scumbags of America and the anti-G-d leaders of Europe who are in a sense "De-Christianizing" Europe. And that message I believe is "The Church WILL NOT bend toward secularization." I believe this to be a message also to the hipocritical members of the Church, Ted "hic" Kennedy and John F'n Kerry.
As a Jew, I believe that Pope Benedict XVI will continue with the close relationship that John Paul II started with the Jewish people. I also hope that he does not bend to preassure from the Anti G-d crowd like the socialist scumbags of the Democrat party and their army of laywers from the ACLU who are fighting for Our Right to do things THEIR way!
Well, thats all for now. The Rogue Jew will be gone for 6 days to New York city for the Jewish Holiday of Pesach (Passover) so that my wife and I may spend it with family and friends. I wish all of my Jewish readers a "Happy and Kosher Pesach" and to my gentile friends, I will see ya next week.
As many of us are aware, Universities in the United States are breeding grounds for radical left wing indroctination to our unsuspecting and simple minded youth who are quite suseptible to idealist thinking especially being away from home for the first time in their young lives. What I think many of us are unaware of is the fact that these are the same tactics that were employed by Hitler during his rise to power.
Adolph Hitler and his Nazi's used thugs much like these same punks used by the left to attack conservative speakers such as Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Horowitz. Thugs like the Skin Head wing of the Nazi Party that still exists today. The Left wing Democratic Party in America is using the same tactics used over 70 yrs ago.
Because it is abundantly clear -- as more and more college and university administrations begin to understand our message and hear our call for them to embrace our Academic Bill of Rights -- the left is absolutely terrified we’re are succeeding.
Here is a description of what happend to David Horowitz in Indian: "Let me tell you what happened on that night in Indianapolis, Indiana. As I stepped to the podium, facing a largely leftwing audience, a group of four students -- juvenile delinquents, really -- rushed the stage and slammed a chocolate cream pie into my face.
Fortunately my glasses weren’t broken. Republican students caught and had arrested three of the students -- including a female who spewed racial epithets at Butler professor Marvin Scott, a good friend of mine and yours in this battle, and the Republican candidate for Senate in last November’s election."
There was nothing comedic about it. This attack was one in an increasing string of violence against conservative speakers. Ann Coulter, William Kristol and Pat Buchanan have suffered similar assaults as well in recent weeks.
Let me assure you that this type of thuggish behavior is being encouraged by radical faculties that regularly deride conservatives and conservative students, expressing their bilious hatred of President Bush in the classroom that is tacitly condoned by school administrations that tolerate these acts!
There should be ZERO tolerance for this type of thuggery against campus speakers whether they are Pat Buchanan or Noam Chomsky! But leftists on campuses don’t feel that way, so we must continue to press our case for an Academic Bill of Rights for our colleges and universities from coast to coast.

It still just pisses me off on the slanted coverage that was given by the mainstream media on the death of a madman...Yassir Arafat. If Arafat had been a Republican? We all know the answer to that one. The media would have been all over him like stink on a turd.
The following article was written by Tamar Sternthal in 2003.
Lebanon's Civil War and Jennings' Historical Revisionism
In his Oct. 23 report on the twentieth anniversary of the Marine barracks bombing, Peter Jennings provided a highly slanted account of Lebanon’s tumultuous civil war years, twice mentioning Israel as a destabilizing factor but not mentioning the Syrian occupation or the Palestinians’ role in fomenting violence and chaos. He stated:
In 1983, the marines were in Lebanon on a peacekeeping mission. Lebanon had been the scene of a civil war for 15 years. Israel had invaded the country. The US was resented by many in the region who believed that President Reagan had approved. And Palestinians had recently been massacred by Israel’s Lebanese Christian allies. And six months before the marines were attacked, this new era of violence had begun. The US embassy in West Beirut had been attacked by a suicide bomber in another truck, 63 people, including 17 Americans, had died that day. And four months after the marine barracks bombing, the US withdrew from Lebanon. . .
In his review of Lebanon’s raging civil war, Jennings neglects the violence’s origins: the PLO’s establishment of a bloody state-within-a-state which destabilized the country’s delicate balance of religious and ethnic groups. After being ejected from Jordan in 1970, the Palestinian leadership relocated to Lebanon, using it as a base for attacks against Israel and the local Lebanese populations–both Christian and Muslim. As the New York Times reported on Oct. 15, 1976, speaking at a United Nations General Assembly, Lebanese Ambassador Edward Ghorra “laid full blame for Lebanon’s civil war on ‘the Palestinian revolution’ and its supporters in the Arab countries. . . . . Not even Israelis in this General Assembly have gone so far as Mr. Ghorra, who condemned ‘the assaults perpetrated by the Palestinian organization against the sovereignty of Lebanon and the security of its people.’” Indeed, ABC News staff people themselves were victims of the PLO’s new regime in Beirut: ABC radio reporter Sean Toolan was murdered by PLO thugs and ABC’s Jerry King was forced to leave the country after a PLO threat on his life (Ze’ev Chafets, Double Vision).
In addition, while Jennings notes that Israel invaded Lebanon, he neglects to mention the reason: The PLO’s repeated shelling of northern Israeli towns from Lebanon and hundreds of terrorist attacks in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.
Furthermore, it is difficult to understand why Jennings finds the Israeli invasion newsworthy, but not the Syrian. In 1976, Syria entered the Lebanese civil war on the Christian side but switched allegiance to the PLO, Druze and Muslims two years later. Syria took over two-thirds of the country and fueled the raging fighting there by deploying surface-to-air missile batteries and permitting Palestinian terrorist groups to attack Israel (Jillian Becker, The PLO).
Finally, Palestinians, who played a major role in Lebanon’s civil war violence, are mentioned in only one reference: as victims of the Sabra and Shatila massacre: “. . .Palestinians had recently been massacred by Israel’s Lebanese Christian allies.” Thus, while Israel and the Christians are implicated in violence, the Palestinians are not. Jennings might have reported, for example, that the massacre followed the Palestinian assassination of President Elect of Lebanon Bashir Gemayel, which came two days earlier. Moreover, the Palestinians themselves had carried out massacres, such as the one in the Christian town of Damour in January 1976. Umm-Atallah, a female survivor, recounted the devastation and murder perpetrated by the PLO and their Muslim allies:
They assaulted Damour and murdered people there. My son and my nephew were killed; my second sister, her son and grandson, her daughter and her daughter-in-law, her daughter’s mother-in-law and her second grandson, and the son of my third sister [were all murdered]. After they invaded Damour, they went in and killed everybody in the house, with the assistance of a group of the Na’ama neighbourhood inhabitants: Palestinians, Syrians and other people from Na’ama. . .
When they entered Damour, every house which was not burnt or destroyed, they set afire and robbed. . . .All in order to let our their frustrations and wrath on the Christian Lebanese, cut men and women into pieces [sic]. They literally cut them down with axes before they killed them. (Israel Television, July 23, 1982, cited in PLO in Lebanon: Selected Documents, edited by Raphael Israeli)
In short, an accurate report would have noted that in addition to the Israeli invasion, Lebanon suffered through a Syrian invasion and the PLO’s establishment of a violent mini-state (which prompted the Israeli invasion).
There are many websites that I found that detail the atrocoties that took place on the Christian population of Damour by the Yassir Arafat and the Palestinians.
The Rogue Jew
Although I know that he is not in reality going to campaign for Pope, but since it has been so long since we have heard anything come OUT of his stinking pie hole, it gives me a chance to sound off on what a hemmoroidal douche bag Michael Moore truly is.
Michael Moore as Pope? Who is next on the liberal list to be Pope? Maybe a spiritual leader such as Osama bin Laden. To bad Yassir Arafat is feeding the worms, maybe he could have been chosen, for that matter, let's contact Zarquawi, he sure to be someone that the liberal left would approve of to be the spiritual leader to the millions of Catholics everywhere, and while they are all at it, they could return the Catholic Church to its earliest days of exterminating Jews who would not convert to Catholisism.
I cannot wait to hear what other vile treachery will spew forth from this volcanic turd depository known as Michael Moore.

I did some research on the subject of when the Dachau Concentration Camp was liberated and being that during the month of April is when the camps were liberated by the Americans, British, and even the Russians, I felt compelled to print Virgil's story of what happend that day as it occured through his eyes.
Dachau was liberated by American troops on April 29, 1945. The scenario that they encountered was Dantesque beyond description. Corpses were piled up helter-skelter in the morgue of the new crematorium and in front of the old crematorium.
Given the evidence that confronted them, it was not surprising that soldiers, observers, journalists and Congressional investigators should have assumed that the bodies found in the mortuary, on the floor of the gas chamber, and next to the old crematorium had been victims of the gas chamber. A report in a U.S. Army newspaper of the time reported:
The Dachau crematorium is a long low brick structure with a tall smokestack from which smoke poured day and night. The gas chamber is 20 feet square and has 18 nozzles across the ceiling that look like shower outlets.
Grand Rapids, Michigan. A Japanese American veteran (87), who helped free Jewish prisoners at the Dachau death camp near Munich, Germany in 1945.
Virgil Westdale, a memeber of the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion, was deployed to Germany on March 9, 1945 and would travel 1,100 miles across Germany to the Austrian border serving the 7th Army infantry elements that needed the 552nd support. In this advance into Germany the 522nd arrived on April 29, 1945 at Dachau Jewish extermination camp, northwest of Munich, for an unforgettable experience. This death camp, plus other sub camps in Dachau had over 32,000 starved and emaciated political prisoners including 10,000 slated to be literally worked to death and cremated.
Westdale was advancing with the 522nd artillerymen who shot the locks off the gates of Dachau. He said the German guards had fled hours earlier when they learned of the arriving 7th Army. The Jewish inmates were confused when they saw the Japanese Americans thinking they now would be killed by the Japanese who had come to assist the Germans. The Japanese Americans soon were able to prove they were indeed Americans. Westdale recalled that "we were ordered not to feed the inmates as the food and drink would make them sick, however, we violated those orders while the officers looked the other way. We gave the Jewish inmates assurance and shared our blankets, medical supplies, food rations, and clothing as it was cold and there was still snow on the ground."
A bond of friendship has since developed between the Japanese Americans and former Jewish inmates who have since visited Hawaii for reunions. Westdale said "I cannot imagine human beings committing such acts of genocide against fellow men. While I regret I was not accepted as an aviator, I am pleased to have been a member of the American forces to help the Jewish people end their misery. During the past 60 years, never a day has passed without remembering the days of late April 1945 at Dachau feeling sad for the perished and glad for the survivors".
When Mr. Louis Abramson, the National Commander of the Jewish War Veterans of the USA, a Veterans Service Organization of the Department of Veterans Affairs, was informed about Mr. Westdale and the 522nd assistance to the Dachau inmates, he said "Virgil Westdale embodies the spirit and fortitude of "The Greatest Generation" as he and his unit helped to liberate the innocents who had been caught up in the horror of the Holocaust and incarcerated at Dachau. The acts of humanity of the 522nd toward those who had been prisoners of the greatest evil of our time represent the ultimate capacity for good and decency. As Mr. Westdale never forgets those whom he helped to liberate, the world will never forget the victory against evil achieved by Mr. Westdale and the men of the 522nd."
I am both priviliged and honored to know Virgil Westdale and would like to thank him for what he did during World War II.
He may be under attack by a phalanx of left-wing groups, mostly financed by billionaire George Soros, but House Minority Leader is backed to the hilt by Soros' fellow Jews.
And they have good reasons for backing the embattled Republican.
DeLay is one of Israel's most stalwart supporters in Congress.
"DeLay is arguably the best friend Israel has in Congress," Morton Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, which adamantly opposes the creation of a Palestinian state told the Jewish weekly Forward. "He's not simply a guy who you go for help. He gets other guys to help. A guy like DeLay will call you [to ask] what can he do."
Added Republican activist Jeff Ballabon, head of the conservative Center for Jewish Values, "DeLay's concern for Jewish survival and his active friendship for Israel are deep and personal," Ballabon told the Forward. "They existed long before the Oslo terror war and long before Jewish organizations or fundraisers ever discovered him. Those in the Jewish community who have come to appreciate the depth and magnitude of his friendship ought to stand with him now."
According to the Forward, "Jews have figured prominently in DeLay's defense — both as advocates and whipping boys. In Congress, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, an observant Jew who is the House Republicans' chief deputy majority whip, has been key in spearheading the GOP pushback on DeLay. The Republican strategy has been to blame DeLay's problems on the "liberal media" and the Hungarian-born Jewish billionaire financier George Soros."
"Tom DeLay has been the staunchest defender of Israel in Congress today. He has been an extremely effective leader on the House floor," Cantor told to the Forward.
"Congressional Democrats and their billionaire liberal allies like George Soros can't accept that he beats them at the ballot box and on the House floor. I think it is becoming apparent to the American people that these attacks are not about Tom DeLay. They are about Democrats using any means necessary to regain the majority."
Soros role in masterminding and funding the smear DeLay campaign was also reported in the new Washington Examiner newspaper.
Writing in the Examiner Richard Lessner, executive director of the American Conservative Union charged "The campaign to 'demonize DeLay' is engineered by a cabal of leftist interest groups allied with the Democratic Nation Committee and House Democrats. The campaign is funded by the Democrats' Daddy Warbucks, billionaire George Soros."
According to Lessner, Soros, "frustrated in his inability to defeat President Bush, has conspired with the DNC and the House Dems to defeat the Bush agenda by destroying Tom DeLay. These conspirators believe that they can 'Newter' Tom DeLay the way they did Newt Gingrich in the late 1990s, thereby stopping the progress of a conservative Bush agenda and setting up the Democrats to retake control of
Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008."
There are 26,255 Yankee dead from World War I buried in 4 cemeteries in France.
There are 30,426 American dead from World War II buried in 6 cemeteries in France.
These 56,681 brave American heroes died in their youth to liberate a country
which is guilty of shameful unspeakable behavior in the 21st century.
May the people of the United States of America never forget their sacrifice.
How many of you ever see these headlines on any of the mainstream media newscasts?
Chirac REFUSES to outlaw Hamas and Hezzbollah! SCHMUCK!! YOU have BLOOD on your hands!
Chirac implicated in U.N. Food for oil scandal!!
Chirac visits Arafat but give a cold shoulder to Allawi?
2005 France now ACTIVELY helping terrorists transit and HIDE!!
May 2003 Bulletin......Chirac tells Saddam everything. Chirac is a SPY!!
The Rogue Jew believes that with friends like Chirac and France......who needs enemies? The axis of WEASELS have been exposed AGAIN! Our BLOOD....now and before and THIS is what we get? You backstabbing, arrogant French SUCK!
Hatred for Bush has tainted your objectiveness. Your sense of what is right and WRONG! The so called "Tolerant party" is now the party of "Intolerance" Anyone who disagrees gets labeled "Mean Spirited" or part of a vast right wing conspiracy. And American's don't need most of the $29 billion in CRAP we buy from the French. Chirac, you and France are a back stabbing, grand standing, anti-semetic, arrogant schmucks.
Here are a few quotes about my favorite country:
"France has neither winter nor summer nor morals. Apart from these drawbacks it is a fine country. France has usually been governed by prostitutes." ---Mark Twain
I would rather have a German division in front of me than a French one behind me." --- General George S. Patton
"We can stand here like the French, or we can do something about it." ---- Marge Simpson
"The only time France wants us to go to war is when the German Army is sitting in Paris sipping coffee." --- Regis Philbin
"You know why the French don't want to bomb Saddam Hussein? Because he hates America, he loves mistresses and wears a beret. He is French, people ---Conan O'Brien
"I don't know why people are surprised that France won't help us get Saddam out of Iraq. After all, France wouldn't help us get the German out of France!" ---Jay Leno
"The last time the French asked for 'more proof' it came marching into Paris under a German flag." ---David Letterman
Next time there's a war in Europe, the loser has to keep France!!
Over all, I would say that I hold a very low opinion of France, Jeac "Off" Chirac, and the French people who support their treasonous leader.
Happy Weekend, The Rogue Jew
Friday, April 15, 2005
As the first major camp to be liberated by the allies, the event received a lot of press coverage and the world saw the horrors of the Holocaust. Sixty-thousand prisoners were present at the time of liberation. Afterward, about 500 people died daily of starvation and typhus, reaching nearly 14,000. Mass graves were made to hold the thousands of corpses of those who perished.
Between April 18 and April 28, the dead were buried. At first the SS guards were made to collect and bury the bodies, but eventually the British had to resort to bulldozers to push the thousands of bodies into mass graves. Evacuation of the camp began on April 21. After being deloused, inmates were transferred to Camp No. 2, which had been converted into a temporary hospital and rehabilitation camp. As each of the barracks was cleared, they were burned down to combat the spread of typhus. On May 19, evacuation was completed and two days later the ceremonial burning of the last barracks brought to an end the first stage of the relief operations. In July, 6,000 former inmates were taken by the Red Cross to Sweden for convalescence, while the rest remained in the newly-established displaced person (DP) camp to await repatriation or emigration.
The camp’s SS commandant, Josef Kramer, known as the "Beast of Belsen" was tried and found guilty by a British military court and was subsequently hanged. Forty-five staff members were tried, fourteen were acquitted.
Today, all that remains on the site of the former camp is a graveyard.
Hitler surrounded himself with a small clique of fanatical, ruthless henchmen - a violent group of outsiders who rose to power in the Third Reich and established political and economic institutions of legitimized terror.
These masterminds of death were found to be quite psychologically normal. They were men of fine standing, husbands who morning and night kissed their wives, fathers who tucked their children into bed.
But murders, brutalities, cruelties, tortures, atrocities, and other inhuman acts were an everyday occurrence.
The European Jews were the primary victims of the Nazis. In 1933 nine million Jews lived in the 21 countries of Europe that would be occupied by Germany during the war. By 1945 two out of every three European Jews had been killed.
But Jews were not the only group singled out for persecution by Hitler's Nazi regime. One-half million Gypsies, 250,000 mentally or physically disabled persons, and more than three million Soviet prisoners-of-war also fell victim to Nazi genocide. Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, Social Democrats, Communists, partisans, trade unionists, and Polish intelligentsia were also victims of the hate and aggression carried out by the Nazis.
THE ROGUE JEW
My inlaws are the nicest people in the world, especially my little niece who is now 5 yrs old and she is a future guitar player just like her Uncle Zev.
While I'm away, please keep returning to utilize some of the new features on my website. Features such as the links to NewsMax.com and WorldNetDaily, Headline and Jewish News Feeds and of course the weather radar. I will try to post from NY while I am there if a particular issue forces me to have to disengage from my Holiday silence.
Have a good weekend. The Rogue Jew
"To disarm the people (is) the best and most effectual way to enslave them..." -George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380.
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.: -Patrick Henry.
To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." -Richard Henry Lee writing in Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic (1787-1788).
"The right of the people to keep and bear...arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country..." -James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434 (June 8, 1789).
"They that can give up liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania.
And here are some quotes from Democrat President John F. Kennedy about the Second Amendment:
"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia', the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms', our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy, April 1960
"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom." - John F. Kennedy
And this from Krusty The Clown: "There are three reasons to own a gun. To protect yourself and your family, to hunt dangerous and delicious animals, and to keep the King of England out of your face." - Krusty the Clown
Now let us examine a quote by Adolph Hitler on the issue of gun control:
"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has FULL GUN REGISTRATION! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"
by Hitler,1935 WHO WAS A SOCIALIST HIMSELF!
Yeah, those people were REAL safe, weren't they? All the way to the gas chambers!
Our founding fathers made no distinction between what was a gun for sporting use and a gun for military use. Why is it that the military be afforded the right to possess better and more powerful weapons then that of an ordinary citizen? What is Diane Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Charles Schumer, and Hillary Clinton afraid of? What is their ultimate agenda by disarming Americans? We all know NOW that Hitler had an agenda in mind when he initiated gun control in Germany. These are simple reasons why Senator Hillary "HITLERARY" Clinton must NEVER, EVER become President of the United States.
Since the Democrats lost control of the House and the Senate in 1994, they have become aware of the reasons and have been quiet on the issue of gun control, that is why they tried to make John Kerry look like a hunter and a gun owner. Of course they failed, even the dumbest of Americans could see thru that scharade. Beware of their silence on this issue. Silence does not mean that they have given up. They are just lying in wait for their chance to strike again.
The Rogue Jew
With their ever DECREASING numbers in both the Senate and in the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court and other federal courts is their last bastion to advance their destructive and socialist agenda upon unsuspecting Americans.
What frightens me is the new route that the Judiciary branch of our government has taken lately of legislating from the bench, and the liberal socialist communist Democrats are pushing for this by blocking any and all of President Bush's nominations to the bench that threaten their agenda.
The Democrats have been doing this by using what is called a fillibuster. A filibuster is allowed because the Constitution gives each house of Congress the right to "determine the Rules of its Proceedings." That means the Senate can run itself however it sees fit. With one short-lived exception, the Senate had no rule until 1917 to halt discussion on anything—reflecting the body's long-standing commitment to unlimited debate. A single senator thus had the power to hold the entire body hostage on an issue, so long as he was prepared to keep talking about it. Hence the term "filibuster," derived from the Spanish filibustero, or freebooter, meaning "pirate." (That word ultimately goes back to a pair of Dutch words that mean "free" and "booty"—which may or may not be relevant to goings-on in the Senate.)
By using filibusters on the judges, the Democrats have essentially imposed a supermajority requirement, and we are entitled to stop them. This would not affect filibusters on legislation, which could still take place.” Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican, who also supports the change, said, “Filibusters are designed so that the minority can bring about compromise on legislation. You can always change the words of a bill or the dollars involved. But you can’t compromise a Presidential nomination. It’s yes or no. So filibusters on nominations are an abuse of our function under the Constitution to advise and consent.”
The majority of votes are there on the floor of the Senate, the Democrats know that this is their ONLY WAY to stop a vote from occuring. I hope that our leaders in the Senate grow a set a big brass balls and stop this destructive tactic that the liberals are employing. They absolutely refuse to give up the power that they once had even though the people of the United States have spoken and told them that they do not want them in control by voting their sorry asses out of office.

The group says between June 6, 2004 and March 3, 2005 that 64.6-percent of Grand Rapids residents arrested for "obstructing" were African-American. Blacks also accounted for 57.8-percent of those arrests in Wyoming, and made up 28.2-percent of those busted for "obstructing" by the Kent County Sheriff's Department. Countywide, 54.1-percent of the people arrested for "obstructing" were African-American.
Want statistics, the chief asks? Almost two-thirds of felony assault suspects are black. So are half of the victims. Those numbers don't add up, either, he says. "Those are the great issues facing this community. The violent crime, the fact that our children are heartbreakingly dropping out of high school and our community. These are the issues that are most pressing to me as a police chief, and are most concern to the majority of community."
"Allegations that race would serve as the foundation for whether or not a police officer would make a charge is not only professionally insulting, but it also represents a great disconnect between those that would articulate that they are the leaders in the community and the citizens that every day are dealing with some real problems," Chief Dolan adds.
Chief Dolan hopes this study won't encourage more people to take on the police. Neither does the Urban League whose leaders say they want to work with police from across the county to cure this problem.
According to the Grand Rapids Police Department, officers made 367 "hindering and opposing" arrests last year. Of those, 132 went to trial, 131 were found guilty, and the one person who was acquitted was convicted of another crime. Two hundred twenty-four of those arrested took plea bargains for lesser offenses, and 38 faced more serious charges of "resisting and obstructing." All pleaded or were found guilty. Prosecutors dropped 11 cases. Most of those suspects were found guilty or pleaded to other crimes. Only one case was dropped outright.
After this report was released this week, a local radio show host and merchant of hate went on the war path against the Grand Rapids Police Dept. After 5 minutes of listening to this radio show host call officials of the GRPD "IDIOTS" I finally got sick of the show and turned it off. Of course we all know that the show I am referring to is that of the one and only Tyrone Bynum show on 640 am.
And of course when a caller chimes in with a differing opinion then that of Tyrone and his base listeners, they go on the attack resorting to name calling and NEVER, EVER actually debating the issue.
I am not saying that the Grand Rapids Police Dept. is perfect. Everyone has a few bad eggs, but the hate rhetoric and the slamming I heard on Tyrone's show could dangerously embolden people to take action against the police in forms of physical violence and increased resistance to lawful arrests that could cause injury to both the police and the public. Obviously by the hate displayed on Tyrone's show this week toward the police made it appear to this writer that Tyrone does not care about whether or not police get hurt in the performance of their duties.
The best action to take if a police officer is making an arrest of someone you know, is to just "BACK THE HELL OFF!" Let the police do their jobs. If the person being arrested is innocent then that will be proved when they have their day in court. If not...OH WELL, SEE YA IN 5-10 yrs. NEVER, EVER INTERFERE WITH AN ARREST! RESISTANCE AND INTERFERENCE ONLY ESCALATES THE SITUATION CAUSING INJURIES AND MORE ARRESTS THEN WERE NECCESSARY TO BEGIN WITH.
I don't think this is a race issue. I think it is an actual problem that people continually interfere with police making arrests. I see it on COPS all the time. 99% if the time if you just keep your big fat mouth shut and mind your own business, the cops will leave you alone. But, if your up to no good. Well then, I hope they get you.
I guess that it is no coincidense that 640 AM also has a new format during the evenings and nights. COMEDY, and that is exactly what you get when you listen to the Tyrone Bynum show between the hours of 3pm - 6pm. All Comedy Radio, cause Tyrone Bynum as a serious intellectual radio host, HA HA HA. The guy is a huge joke. And not a funny one at that!

Two events,sixty years apart but eerily similiar,
prey persistantly on my mind.In January 1933,in
my native country,Adolph Hitler was appointed
chancellor.The appointment was then confirmed by
a 44% plurality for the National Socialists.In
1992,in my adopted country,Bill Clinton was elected
by a 43% plurality.Significantly,both won weak
mandates from minorities of the electorate,but by
a cunning manipulation asserted far broader support.
Many thoughtful Germans,recognizing Hitler's true
character,foresaw chaos and destruction.They were
harassed,pursued,had "accidents" or disappeared.
Hitler's party expanded national health care,thus
enlarging each citizen's records; federalized public
schools;set curricula and programs for young and old
alike.Religion was actively discouraged.Obedience was
demanded of each citizen.Thirteen years of National
Socialism institutionalized fear by constant verbal
terrorism,lies and fiendish distortion of truth.
Government held the citizenry hostage through dread.
A cowardly judiciary silently acquiesced.Government
controlled an intimidated press.In 1945,the awful
consequences of terror,silence and fear stood naked
before the world.Tbe cost in human lives and dignity
was inexcusable.I saw,I lived there.We are not immune.
The tragedy can repeat itself here!
America today is confronted by the depreciated values of
socialism advanced for thirtyfive years.Its self-discipline
undermined,a disoriented society lost faith in itself and
now denies the value of character.The Clintons continues to
disdain character.America has been seduced by dependancy
on governmental solutions lacking integrity,thus avoiding
personal responsibility.Expediency rules.The sickening
spectacle of partial-birth abortions is an abomination.
Government corruption is rampant.Our society is sick with
tragedy.It's imperative that increasing regulation by an
overpowering government be halted and reversed.
America's biggest failure as a President, Jimmy Carter allowed the radical muslims to overthrow the Shah and in turn take Iran back into the stone ages with the narrow thinking of the "religious" Shiite government led by the Ayottollah Khomeini. And China, well we all know that it was the most scandalous former President Bill "BJ" Clinton who allowed the Chinese to get their filthy little hands on technology that enhanced the Communist country's ballistic missle program making it possible for Chinese nuclear weapons to be targeted on our nation.
Why in the world would we want to ever repeat these grave errors by electing Senator and former First Lady In Waiting, Hillary Clinton as President.(we all know what Bill was waiting for and Hillary was'nt delivering.) We need to realize what a disasterous error that would be for this country.
Hillary is one of the most vicious and vengeful women I have ever come to read about in American politics. She rants about the vast right wing conspiracy against her and her husband, partner in crime Bill Clinton, but yet anyone who speaks out against them, they go on libelous and slanderous attacks against the ones who dare.
I have been a harsh critic of Hillary Clinton for a very long time. She is a mean-spirited, duplicitous, heavy-handed manipulator with a vile mouth and ruthless resolve. Hillary is just pure evil! Let us not let this happen again to our country. We as Americans deserve better then the Clintons.

Being middle class in America is sometimes taken to define a set of values, not simply income class. Defining the middle class as having an income between 40 percent above and below the U.S. median income adjusted for family size, it becomes apparent that over the past 35 years, American middle class families became better off even throughout the temporary setback of the recession that began during the Clinton Administration. It's just that the socialist left in an attempt to advance their agenda and discredit President Bush will not allow the lap dog media to report these facts.
Declining real income opportunities for workers with relatively lowskills/education is a major factor widening wage and income inequality. Most economists agree that a shift in marketplace return to skills, biased in favor of highskill workers, is the major factor operating to increase the wage gap.
The fact that large numbers of America s middle class moved to the upper class, finding higherpaying jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities in the rapidly changing economy is the good news. Solving the problem of growing inequality is not about public policies that target those in the middle and upper class who are responsible for the good news. Rather, it is about creating more good news; finding ways to equip more workers with the needed skills to find opportunities to maintain their middle class status.
In the state of Michigan, despite a growing economy everywhere else in the nation, we here continue to stagnate which leads one to guess that our present gubinatorial leadership in the form of one Jennifer Granholm is failing us by doing absolutely nothing to attract business to Michigan rather she is doing everything to scare business out of the state. She might not have raised income taxes but she has raised everything except the dead with increased fees, cigarette taxes,She decided that making homeowners pay next year's property taxes to pay this year's bills was a good idea.
Let's examine some facts about Michigan: Fact: Michigan has some of the highest employment taxes in the country. Fact: Michigan has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. Fact: Michigan ranks high nationally for having the least number of employees with an education beyond the high school level.
Why do employers want to remain in a state which has the high taxes, when they can simply move their business out of state and save money? It's time to start by (a) cutting those business taxes, and (b) focusing on jobs outside of the automotive industry, and helping people find funds to pay for trade school/higher education.
I am no big fan of the former govenor John Engler, but you cannot place all of the blame for the economy on him. When Engler took office in 1991 from then Govenor Jim Blanchard, he was handed a rotten economy and he had to make some unpopular cuts in state spending, key word here being "spending". But eventually we had a thriving economy in Michigan and businesses and individuals thrived with tax cuts and we even had a surplus of revenue. Yes, WITH TAX CUTS not TAX RAISES or raising fees.
Govenor Granholm needs to get a clue. She is taxing, and regulating business right out of the state. Without big business like the automotive industry here, the smaller businessman cannot stay in business. We need to put Michigan back to work. Next year in 2006 it is time to hand Jennifer Granholm a pink slip of her own and get the people to tell her, "YOUR FIRED!"
Instead of a shrinking middle class, I think it's time for a shrinking socialist liberal left!
The Rogue Jew
Written by Ted Nugent, the rock singer and hunter/naturalist, upon hearing that California Senators B. Boxer and D. Feinstein denounced him for being a "gun owner" and a "Rock Star". This was his response after telling the senators about his past contributions to children's charities and scholarship foundations which have totaled more than $13.7 million in the last 5 years!!
I'm a Bad American - this pretty much sums it up for me. I like big trucks, big boats, big houses, and naturally, pretty women.
I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some midlevel governmental functionary with a bad comb-over who wants to give it away to crack addicts squirting out babies.
I don't care about appearing compassionate.
I think playing with toy guns doesn't make you a killer. I believe ignoring your kids and giving them Prozac might.
I think I'm doing better than the homeless.
I don't think being a minority makes you noble or victimized. I have the right not to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird or make me mad.
This is my life to live, and not necessarily up to others expectations.
I know what SEX is and there are not varying degrees of it.
I don't celebrate Kwanzaa. But if you want to that's fine; I just don't feel like everyone else should have to.
I believe that if you are selling me a Dairy Queen shake, a pack of cigarettes, or hotel room you do it in English. As of matter of fact, if you are an American citizen you should speak English. My uncles and forefathers shouldn't have had to die in vain so you can leave the countries you were born in to come disrespect ours, and make us bend to your will.
Get over it.
I think the cops have every right to shoot your sorry butt if you're running from them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word 'freeze' or 'stop' in English, see the previous line.
I don't use the excuse "it's for the children" as a shield for unpopular opinions or actions.
I know how to count votes and I feel much safer letting a machine with no political affiliation do a recount when needed. I know what the definition of lying is, and it isn't based on the word "is" -ever.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you qualify for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans, etc., so you can open a hotel, 7-Eleven, trinket shop, or any thing else, while the indigenous peoples can't get past a high school education because they can't afford it. I didn't take the initiative in inventing the Internet.
I thought the Taco Bell dog was funny.
I want them to bring back safe and sane fireworks.
I believe no one ever died because of something Ozzy Osbourne, Ice-T or Marilyn Manson sang, but that doesn't mean I want to listen to that crap from someone else's car when I'm stopped at a red light. But I respect your right to.
I think that being a student doesn't give you any more enlightenment than working at Blockbuster or Jack In The Box.
I don't want to eat or drink anything with the words light, lite or fat-free on the package.
Our soldiers did not go to some foreign country and risk their lives in vain and defend our Constitution so that decades later you can tell me it's a living document ever changing and is open to interpretation. The guys who wrote it were light years ahead of anyone today, and they meant what they said - now leave the document alone, or there's going to be trouble.
I don't hate the rich. I help the poor. I know wrestling is fake.
I've never owned, or was a slave, and a large percentage of our forefathers weren't wealthy enough to own one either. Please stop blaming me because some prior white people were idiots - and remember, tons of white, Indian, Chinese, and other races have been enslaved too - it was wrong for every one of them.
I believe a self-righteous liberal Democrat with a cause is more dangerous than a Hell's Angel with an attitude.
I want to know exactly which church is it where the "Reverend" Jessie Jackson preaches; and, what exactly is his job function.
I own a gun, you can own a gun, and any red blooded American should be allowed to own a gun, but if you use it in a crime, then you will serve the time.
I think Bill Gates has every right to keep every penny he made and continue to make more. If it makes you mad, then invent the next operating system that's better and put your name on the building. Ask your buddy that invented the Internet to help you.
I don't believe in hate crime legislation. Even suggesting it makes me mad. You're telling me that someone who is a minority, gay, disabled, another nationality, or otherwise different from the mainstream of this country has more value as a human being that I do as a white male.
If someone kills anyone, I'd say that it's a hate crime. We don't need more laws! Let's enforce the ones we already have.
I think turkey bacon, turkey beef, turkey fake anything sucks.
I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child. It takes a parent with the guts to stand up to the kid and spank his butt and say "NO!" when it's necessary to do so.
I'll admit that the only movie that ever made me cry was Ole Yeller.
I didn't realize Dr. Seuss was a genius until I had a kid.
I will not be frowned upon or be looked down upon or be made to keep silent because I have these beliefs and opinions. I thought this country allowed me that right.
I will not conform or compromise just to keep from hurting somebody's feelings.
I'm neither angry nor disenfranchised, no matter how desperately the mainstream media would like the world to believe otherwise.
Yes, I guess by some people's definition, I may be a bad American.
But that's tough.
On yesterdays show, Tyrone was spouting off about how the Fox News Network is the most evil news source available today, while singing the praises of CNN and MSNBC and yes, even CBS, ABC, and NBC as being fair and unbiased!?!? OY VEY! I wish that he was actually kidding when he made that statement, but then again, Tyrone is nothing more then a liberal lap dog with a small time radio show and he tows the party line when it comes to politics and race relations. "BLAME SOMEONE ELSE!" That is the usual line of action taken.
I know that I all but quit relying on CNN and the big 3 networks for reliable news because of their usual liberal slant to the left. Liberals, even small time hate merchants like Tyrone Bynum are literally fuming over the right slant of FOX NEWS and yes even BLOGGERS. We are the people that are now keeping the socialist left in check and reporting to the public everytime they attempt to deceive them with their liberal drool that they spout off with every nitel, ie the Dan Rather report about President Bush and his National Guard Service and the FALSIFIED MEMOs that the now defunct Danno was duped into using for his rabid attempt to discredit the President. "What a Putz!"
Yesterday I also heard Tyrone saying that he had the most intellectual listeners in the world, but when a obviously Republican Caller chimed in and called Tyrone out about a particular issue, Tyrone and his base of listeners could not wait to resort to the name calling and race rhetoric that is usually resorted to when they cannot debate an issue. They absolutley cannot allow someone to hold a different view then the one they hold.
The usual line is usually taken when it comes to race relations in Grand Rapids where Tyrone and his callers are concerned. "It's the white man's fault!" Never taking responsibility for ones own actions. That is why the left could not wait to attack Bill Cosby when he stated that the African-American Community needs to clean up its act. "Whoooo, back up the truck. He said WHAT?!?" The black community went on the defensive when they heard that and of course we all know what happend after Mr. Cosby made his statements....The left attacked him by getting women to claim that they were sexually harrassed by Mr. Cosby. Much like what the Clinton's did whenever someone made accusations about them...They attacked the source. Remember what they did to Paula Jones and the others that accused the scandalous former President of being the sexual deviant that he is.
Tyrone, you made a statement about the people that make such a big deal about such a small fish such as yourself when it comes to some of the things you say and your usual hate rhetoric, wondering why they make a big deal about you. Well, I am going to respond to that. BECAUSE WE CAN! As long as I have breath in my lungs and my big freakin mouth is in workin order, this so called "Uncredible person" as you once refered to me as is going to do whatever I can to discredit a "Wannabe" such as yourself and let you know that you don't get to me, or make me mad with what you say, cause unlike how you feel about Republicans, I feel you have the right to say what you want as long as you are responsible about what you say. The Constitution gives you that right. It also gives a small time blogger who has nothing better to do with his time then listen to your show once in a while and call you out on some of the drool and drivel you dish out on your show.
Anyone interested in listening to Tyrone's show can tune into 640 am if you listen in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Outside of that area, go to www.black-perspective.com and you can listen online and participate in a online chat. I hope that many of my Republican readers do this if for any reason, A GOOD LAUGH! Beware though, some of what Tyrone and his base listeners say may trigger a gag reflex and cause one to hurl, spew and yes...Even PUKE!

Speaking before the League of Womens Voters in the state of Taxachussettes he cited that the President needs to spend less time promoting democracy in other countries and more time guaranteeing democracy at home and making it work better.
The sniveling crybaby is obviously trying to promote his and Hillary's bill in the senate that would overide the 14th amendment and force states to allow convicted felons to vote, obviously knowing that criminals will vote for criminals like a bunch of peas in a pod.
Her history began in 1936 when she began working as a guard and secretary at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp near Berlin. There she met and married the commandant Karl Otto Koch. In 1936 she came to Buchenwald not as a guard, but as the wife of the commandant. In 1941 Ilse became an Oberaufseherin ("chief overseer") over a few female guards who arrived at the camp. Sources say only one or two served in the camp before 1944. In 1943 Ilse's husband was arrested for threatening officials, embezzlement and other offenses and was removed from the camp, while Ilse stayed behind. After a lengthy trial Ilse was acquitted of embezzlement and returned to Buchenwald.
In 1944, with larger numbers of female prisoners entering the camp, Ilse continued her reign of terror and commanded twenty female overseers (Aufseherinnen) in Buchenwald. Her power over her subordinates was absolute. Ilse terrorized female and male prisoners at Buchenwald. She even had a whip fitted with razor blades at the end, which she used on pregnant women. In April 1945, Ilse walked out of the camp and continued living outside the camp wire in a well furnished home. When US GI's arrived at Buchenwald, they heard many stories about the former "wife of the commandant." When the soldiers arrested Ilse they were surprised that she didn't appear to be the sadistic monster the prisoners described.
After the war, Ilse was tried by a war crimes tribunal and sentenced to a life term in 1947, later commuted to four years because of doubts about some of the testimony against her. Konrad Morgen had testified at her tribunal that no evidence supporting the "lampshades and gloves" story had been found in an exhaustive search of her house, though his other testimony was damning. After serving two years of her four-year sentence, she was re-arrested and tried by a German court for killing German nationals, and sentenced to a life term. She committed suicide by hanging herself at Aibach prison in 1967.

THE LIBERATION OF BUCHENWALD-A STORY TOLD BY A THEN 19 YR OLD AMERICAN SOLDIER FACING THE HORRORS OF THE CONCETRATION CAMPS
Sunday, April 10, 2005
All of the foreign dignitaries that attended the funeral were seated alphabetically according to the name of their respective country in French, the "language of diplomacy".
Knowing what I know about the French having read the book, "Our Oldest Enemy", written by John J. Miller and Mark Molesky which details the TRUE NATURE AND HISTORY of the relationship between America and France I can only ask how french is the language of diplomacy?
How is diplomacy defined by the French? Well let's examine a little history here. Can you say "SURRENDER" or "I GIVE UP!"? How does one say these phrases in the language of diplomacy?
When our President, George W. Bush was looking to go to war against the dictators, tyrants and terrorists who had already murdered THOUSANDS of Americans in the attack on September 11, 2001 and were at work plotting future attacks against the U.S., Chirac was busy doing everything in his power, in the "language of diplomacy" to thwart the efforts of our President in securing our safety.
Let's not forget that in the "language of diplomacy", the French bullied and insulted other countries that were coming to the aid of the United States. A French "intelectual" named Jean Beaudrillard even stated at one time after 9/11, . “How all the world without exception dreamt of this event, for no one can avoid dreaming of the destruction of a power that has become hegemonic. . . . It is they who acted, but we who wanted the deed.”
One of histories cruelest and most reprehesible dictators and tryants lived in and was educated in the country of France with the "language of diplomacy". Cambodian dictator and the person who led the murder and destruction of over a million people, most for the simple reason of being educated or able to read, Pol Pot,1949 - Pol Pot wins a government scholarship to study radio electronics in Paris. He fails to obtain a degree but becomes enthralled by writings on Marxism and revolutionary socialism, and joined the French Communist Party.
France only believes in diplomacy if it suits there needs or purpose, other then that, they could give a flying hemmroid about anyone else.
The "language of diplomacy" was used to placate Saddam Hussein for some time by the French for their sole purpose of Iraqi oil and monetary kickbacks from the "Oil For Food" program operated by another problomatic entity and thorn in the side of the U.S., The United Nations.
The "language of diplomacy" being French is just so laughable by this author. If it were up to me, that language would be replaced by the sound of a F-117 flying overhead or an American M-16 pumping a few rounds into an arab terrorist or two. Now that's diplomacy. Remember that an armed society is a polite society, making the sound of the slide action of a Sig Sauer P228 or that of a Smith and Wesson slamming a round into the chamber the TRUE LANGUAGE of DIPLOMACY. In the mean time I would like to offer up some good ole fashioned American diplomatic language. Perhaps flipping a middle finger or two, a boot in the ass and in the words of the Gonzo Azz Kickin, guitar playing, buck guttin son of a bitch Ted "By G-d" Nugent, "KISS MY ASS!" Now that is the language of diplomacy!

THE ROGUE JEW
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scottsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
"I want to repay you," said the nobleman. "You saved my son's life."
"No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.
"Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.
"Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
"I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of." And that he did.
Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.
What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name?
Sir Winston Churchill.
Someone once said: What goes around comes around.
The Rambo Granny of Melbourne, Australia
Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down - - and shot off their testicles.
The old lady spent a week hunting those men down -- and when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way, said Melbourne police investigator Evan Delp. Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant's desk and told him as calm as could be:
'Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God.' Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cellmate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.
The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas' testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. The one guy, Thomas, didn't lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won't be using it the way he used to, Detective Delp told reporters. Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they're just happy to be alive after what they've been through.
The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row. "When I saw the look on my Debbie's face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those bastards myself 'cause I figured the Law would go easy on them," recalled the retired library worker. "And I wasn't scared of them, either-- because I've got me a gun and I've been shootin' all my life. And I wasn't dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one."
So, using a police artist's sketch of the suspects and Debbie's description of the sickos', tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighborhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.
I knew it was them the minute I saw 'em, but I shot a picture of 'em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them, the oldster recalled.
So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door and the minute the big one, Furth, opened the door, I shot 'em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt 'em most, you know.
Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.
Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny. What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison, Det. Delp said, especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for sainthood and a medal.
DEPORT HER TO AMERICA -- WE NEED HER!!!

I am really surprised that the Rev. Jesse Jackson did not make an appearance at the Pope's funeral this week, what with all of the lights, cameras and microphones there. As is the case most of the time, when you find that mixture of people and media, Jesse will be waiting to crawl out from under his slimy rock to shoot off his big mouth on some liberal issue that will make him richer. Money that usually comes from the pockets of stupid, gullable people who buy into his rhetoric of hate.
Yesterday, it was reported that some illeagle aliens were being held against their will by some of the patriotic Americans who have taken it upon themselves to protect our borders. Once again the liberal media was wrong.
"The county attorney's office reviewed all available evidence, that indicates that there was no forcible detention, therefore the case is not substantiated, and no charges are pending," said Carol Capas, a spokeswoman for the Cochise County Sheriff's Department.
Although I laughed my ass off when I read that one of the illegals had posed with a t-shirt reading, "Bryan Barton caught an illegal alien and all I got was this T-shirt." Bryan, my hat's off to you. Mazel Tov!
One more thing: I am really pissed off this week about what I have to pay for a gallon of gas. Someone told me, "In Europe, they pay up too six dollars for a gallon of gas." I'm sorry, I do not give a flying hemrhoid about what the schmucks in Europe are paying for gas.
A note to the President. Let's start pumpin some of that oil in Iraq over here. Screw those Shiite headed bastards in Saudi. Time to do something about this. Make France pay out of their asses for the oil and cut the price for us here in the United States. If the French don't wanna pay...Then they can get their oil from the Chinese or any other one of their Communist dictator buddies. Time to start thinkin about us here in America....In the words of Larry the Cable Guy: "Mr. President, GIT ER DONE!!!"
Have a good weekend....................The Rogue Jew
WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR ANY U.S. PRESIDENT, DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN GIVE THE FOLLOWING SPEECH?
My Fellow Americans:
As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed. Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.
This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.
Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict.
This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.
The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.
Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.
The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.
Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic?
In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.
Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.
To Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Yo, boys.
Work out a peace deal now. Just note that Camp David is closed. Maybe all of you can go to Russia for negotiations. They have some great palaces there. Big tables, too. I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis. I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers, and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world.&n
bsp; I love New York.
A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List
2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change. Mexico is also on List
2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security. So start doing something with your oil. Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty
- starting now.
We are tired of the one-way highway.
It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens.
Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, "darn tootin."
Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America.
It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup Soccer from America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought.
Thanks guys. We owe you and we won't forget. To the nations on List 2, a final thought. Drop dead.
God bless America.
Thank you and good night.
If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.
We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It's time to take a reflective
look at the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family, country and
If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd choose
a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up. Tire irons, squirrel guns and
grit -- that's what rednecks are made of. I hope I am one of those. If you
feel the same, pass this on to your redneck friends. Ya`ll know who ya are...
You might be a redneck if ;.
It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, "One nation, under God. . "
You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
You still say "Christmas" instead of "The Holidays."
You bow your head when someone prays.
You stand and place your hand over your heart, and take your damned hat off, when they play the National Anthem.
You treat Viet Nam vets with great respect, and always have.
You've never burned an American flag.
You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.
You'd give your last dollar to a friend.
If you got this email from me it is because I believe that you, like me have just enough Red Neck in you to have the same
beliefs as those talked about in this email.
God Bless AMERICA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope everyone has a good weekend and I wish all of you a Shabbat Shalom! Happy Friday ya'all!................The Rogue Jew

Written in a question-and-answer format, the book is said to be a must-read not only for Catholics, but also for Christians concerned about the direction Western society is heading.
"Memory and Identity" has already set off a heated controversy in Germany and among Jewish groups after it was revealed that the Pope compares abortion to the Nazi Holocaust. In Germany, for example, a leader of the country's Central Council of Jews called the comparison "unacceptable."
In this book the Pope:
Recalls his near-death memories after the attempt on his life, and compares abortion to the Holocaust.
Denounces gay marriages as part of "a new ideology of evil." He argues that same-sex marriages threaten society by undermining the traditional family.
Takes another swing at gay marriages when he refers to "pressures" on the European Parliament to allow them. "It is legitimate and necessary to ask oneself if this is not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man," he writes.
Calls abortion "legal extermination" comparable to attempts to wipe out Jews and other groups in the 20th century. The Pope openly talks about the Nazi attempt to exterminate Jews and the wholesale slaughter of political opponents by Communist regimes after World War II.
Writes about Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Agca, who shot and nearly killed him in St. Peter's Square on May 13, 1981. The Pope believes the gunman did not act alone, suggesting that the former Soviet Communist Bloc was probably behind the plot. The Pope says that the assassination attempt was not the gunman's initiative: "Someone else masterminded it and someone else commissioned it."
Posits a connection between the assassination attempt and "the last convulsion" of the ideologies of the 20th century - a clear reference to the Communist bloc.
Warns that new evils as bad the Nazis and Communism are rising, and claims that legally elected parliaments in formerly totalitarian countries are today allowing what he calls "new forms of evil" and new exterminations.
"There is still, however, a legal extermination of human beings who have been conceived but not yet born," he writes. "And this time we are talking about an extermination which has been allowed by nothing less than democratically elected parliaments where one normally hears appeals for the civil progress of society and all humanity," he writes.
At a news conference introducing the Pope's new book, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Vatican's top doctrinal official, explained the Pope's comparison of abortion and the Holocaust by noting that the Pope was warning that evil lurked everywhere, "even in liberal political systems."
"Memory and Identity" is based on the Pope's conversations with philosopher friends in 1993 and later with some of his aides.
"Pope John Paul II reveals his personal thoughts in a truly historic document," Orion writes. "The world's greatest communicator offers a moving insight into his intellectual and spiritual journey and pastoral experience."
With the Pope in his twilight years, the publisher notes this book contains his last words for posterity, "an intellectual and spiritual testament in an attempt to seek the answer to defining problems that vex our lives."
An Associated Press (AP) story takes it a step further: The book, it says, looks at Western Civilization with the goal of identifying nothing less than the "roots of evil."
Of all people in the world to comment on someones legacy, I would not expect it to be coming from the man who could'nt keep his zipper up in the "ORAL", I mean Oval Office of the White House. Clinton was IMPEACHED and DISBARRED BY THE SUPREME COURT! He also had his licence to practice law in Arkansas suspended for 5 years.
Former President Bill "BJ" Clinton's legacy is that of many Presidential Firsts:
The first elected president in U.S. history to be impeached -- Dec. 19, 1998.
The first president to be found guilty of a crime while still in office. (Leaking the private correspondence of Kathleen Willey in violation of the Privacy Act)
The first U.S. president to be publicly accused of forcible rape -- by Juanita Broaddrick, Feb. 24, 1999.,
The first U.S. president to approve the sale of sophisticated weapons technology to a hostile power while its emmisaries contributed to his campaign.
The first president to be accused by multiple witnesses, including one under oath before a federal grand jury, of using cocaine while he was the chief law enforcement officer of his state.
The first U.S. president to be accused of sexual assault on White House property -- by Kathleen Willey, March 15, 1998
The first U.S. president to order a paramilitary operation where a network television camera crew was punched, kicked, and forced to the ground at gunpoint to prevent them from broadcasting live video coverage. (Elian Gonzalez's abduction -- April 22, 2000)
The first sitting president to be the subject of a sexual harassment lawsuit -- filed by Paula Jones, May 8, 1994
The first sitting president to be held in contempt of court for lying under oath and fined by a federal judge (in the Jones lawsuit)
The first U.S. president to order an armored assault on a church, resulting in the deaths of 55 members of the congregation along with 25 of their children. (Waco -- April 19, ,1993)
The first U.S. presidential candidate to accept financial support from a KGB spy. (Aldrich Ames -- $7,000, 1991, 92)
The first sitting U.S. president to be named in a federal criminal referral as a possible witness to and beneficiary of fraudulant financial activity. (Whitewater)
The first president to consult with Congress about combat troop deployment while simultaneously receiving oral sex -- according to Monica Lewinsky and Rep. Sonny Callahan. (Starr Report -- Sept. 1998)
The first U.S. president to have two senior administration officials die violently under mysterious circumstances while they were being pressed for testimony on assorted White House scandals. (Vince Foster, Ron Brown)
The first U.S. president to have a major cooperating federal witness against him die in prison while waiting to give prosecutors the testimony they later admitted would have led to first family indictments. (James McDougal)
The first U.S. president to launch unprovoked missile attacks on two sovereign nations. (Sudan, Afghanistan -- Aug. 20, 1998)
Clinton, being on the socialist left is probably just another disgruntled liberal because the Pope remained firm in his positions on gay marriage, abortion, birth control, assisted suicide, and euthanasia. The Pope was against all of those issues listed that the liberal and socialist left sing the praises of. One should probably add that the Pope was probably pretty sure on his position when it came to....ADULTERY!
And one should not forget the position of the left when it comes to G-d and Religion in the United States and even the world. To the Liberal left, G-d has replaced most four letter words as being the most offensive word in the vocabulary.
I will put the Pope's legacy up against that of a disgraced President, (Bill "BJ" Clinton) any day.

Former President Jimmy Carter is feeling the sting of being the biggest flop of a leader in the history of the United States and the free world.
Former President Carter, was snubbed by the Bush Administration in being part of the delegation from the United States attending the Popes' funeral on friday. Reports have it that he was told that the Vatican requested that only 5 people be part of the delegation. Another report is that he was told that no former Presidents would be attending the funeral. Either way you have it, once again the schmuck has been put out where he belongs....On the outside looking in.
Former failed President Carter has called President Bush a war criminal, he has criticized every move the President has made, sucked up to dictators and despots and his feeling get hurt when he is refused...."WELL, EXCUUUUUSE MEEEEEEEEEE!"
The guy is good at building houses....END OF STORY! If he would have just stuck with that, but his shrill partisanship and his close to treasonous interference in foreign affairs has made me look at the Peanut Man as more then just a schmuck who was a pussy. I think that much like another failed President, Bill "BJ" Clinton, Jimmy Carter is trying to rewrite his legacy. A legacy of turning his back on one of our allies in the Middle East, Iran in 1978, making our military weak and trying to convince Americans and those in other countries that we were not a strong nation anymore.
Find it odd as it might be. I would like to chime in and offer some words of wisdom on Jimmy Carter. He is a disgrace, a genuine traitor, and just a plain ole pussyfied media whore scumbag with a hemmoroidal twist! Jimmy Carter has sung the praises of fellow scumbags such as the communist Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro, Terrorist leader and mass murderer Yassir Arafat, Communist Romanian Dictator Nicolai Ceaucescu, and the lunatic Communist Dictator Kim Jung from North Korea.
I wish that I could find more words to describe what a vile, reprehensible outhouse rat that I think Jimmy Carter is. In the meantime I offer some words of wisdom to the failed president Carter: "Drink some Billy Beer and go build a house Jimbo, your not going to represent the United States at the Popes' funeral!"
The man is THE WORST U.S. PRESIDENT IN HISTORY AND HIS BEHAVIOR SINCE LEAVING OFFICE ONLY CONFIRMS WHAT THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES FELT IN 1980 WHEN THEY THREW THE SCHMUCK OUT OF OFFICE AND ELECTED THE GREATEST PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES....RONALD REAGAN!

As a Jewish community, we extend our condolences to the Catholic
faithful around the world on the loss of Pope John Paul II. Though some
in the Jewish community have criticized him for not being strong enough
in condemning past actions of the Church during the Shoah, most in the
Jewish community acknowledge that he has used the high power of his
office to sanctify God's name by devoting more time and attention to
repairing the Church's relationship with their "older brothers" than
other Pope in history. Below is a reflection by Rabbi Gilbert S.
Rosenthal, director of The National Council of Synagogues:
The passing of Pope John Paul II triggers a flood of reflections
and observations among Jews as well as Catholics and with good reason.
distinguished Catholic scholar friend observed to me some years ago
when the papacy of John Paul II is evaluated by scholars, they will
conclude that perhaps his greatest achievement was his repairing
relations with the Jewish people. No other pope in history has devoted
so much time and attention to Jews, whom he described as "our elder
brother," and Judaism as the late and lamented John Paul II.
Undoubtedly, that is the result of his unique background. Karol
Wojtyla, as he was then known, grew up in the Polish town of Wadowice
whose population of 10,000 included 2,000 Jews. He lived with them,
them well, played soccer with them. Indeed. I had lunch with one of his
close soccer buddies who had survived the Holocaust and was fascinated
by his observations and reminisces of his old friend. The future pope
knew the Holocaust first hand as he watched his friends and neighbors
disappear into the maw of the death machine that wiped out 6-million
When he ascended the throne of the papacy in 1978, one of his
priorities was to continue the work of building a new relationship with
Jews begun by Pope John XXIII at Vatican Council II and carried on by
Pope Paul VI. Clearly he was determined to turn a new page in
Catholic-Jewish relations, to rectify some of the wrongs, to expunge
teaching of contempt from Catholic doctrines and catechisms, and to
chart a new course for the two siblings. One of his first foreign
was to Auschwitz in 1979 where he prayed for the victims of the Nazi
Holocaust and begged forgiveness for Christianity's role in that
tragedy. In 1986, he become the first pope ever (so far as we know) to
visit a synagogue-the great synagogue in Rome where he and the Chief
Rabbi sat together before the Holy Ark containing the Torah and chatted
amiably. He denounced anti-Semitism as "a sin against God and
calling for "the purification of memory" and insisting that Christians
must perform "teshuvah-repentance" for the 19- centuries of hatred that
prepared the soil for the Holocaust. The Holocaust memorial concert he
convened in the Vatican in 1994 with the Krakow Philharmonic conducted
by Maestro Gilbert Levine was particularly memorable in this regard.
A series of important papers and documents was issued in the wake
of Pope John Paul II's initiative. These documents were designed to
clarify and amplify the revolutionary teachings of Nostra Aetate part
the landmark statement on relations with the Jews issued by the Second
Vatican Council in October of 1975. They include statements on how to
implement the teachings of Vatican II on the Jews (1974), notes on the
correct way of teaching and preaching about Judaism (1985), reflections
on the Shoah (Holocaust) (1998), and the place of the Sacred Scriptures
of the Jewish people in the Christian Bible (2002). In December 1993,
the Vatican extended official diplomatic recognition to the State of
Israel. In explaining his reason for this diplomatic initiative, the
Pope stated, "It must be understood that Jews, who for 2,000 years,
dispersed among the nations of the world have decided to return to the
land of their ancestors. This is their right."
Perhaps the most dramatic evidence of Pope John Paul II's concern
for the Jewish people came in 2000 with his memorable visit to Israel.
He paid homage to the victims of the Holocaust at Yad Vashem, begging
forgiveness for the indifference or complicity of so many Christians in
that tragedy. Then he went to the Western Wall, the holiest site of
Judaism, the remnant of the outer wall that ringed Jerusalem's Temple,
destroyed by the Romans in 70 C.E., and inserted a note in a crevice in
the Wall which stated, "God of our fathers, You chose Abraham and his
descendants to bring Your name to the nations. We are deeply saddened
the behavior of those who, in he course of history, have caused these
children of Yours to suffer, and asking your forgiveness, we wish to
commit ourselves to genuine brotherhood with the people of the
Somehow, he always found time in his impossible schedule to meet
Jewish leaders and rabbis whether it was Israel's Chief Rabbi Lau in
1993 or a group of American Jews just a few weeks ago. I had the
privilege of meeting with him in New York in October 1995 in an
gathering at the residence of the late Cardinal John O'Connor. It was
unforgettably poignant moment.
Unquestionably, the long pontificate of John Paul II has bequeathed
many legacies to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. But the one that
will stand out in my mind forever, and with good reason, was his
and passionate campaign to undo the many centuries of hatred and
suspicion that marked Catholic-Jewish relations and his dogged
determination that we must enter a new era of mutual respect, dialogue
and trust. He summarized his views in these words: "As Christians and
Jews, following the example of the faith of Abraham, we are called to
a blessing for the world. This is the common task awaiting us. It is
therefore necessary for us Christians and Jews, to be first a blessing
to one another." May his memory be an eternal blessing.
