A recurring theme for this soon-to-be triple-digit, steamy, southern Summer weekend ….
“Despite the devastation hurricanes Katrina and Rita wrought on Louisiana in 2005, a large number of coastal residents still say they would refuse to evacuate if another hurricane zeroes in on the state, a Harvard University survey shows.”
Moonbats attempt to break Gaza blockade … “Taking the protest against the Gaza blockade to a new level, two boats packed with foreign left-wing activists will attempt to sail from Cyprus to the sealed Gaza harbor in two weeks’ time.
The operation is being directed by members of the International Solidarity Movement and the Israeli Commission against House Demolitions.”
You Can’t Fix Stupid (Obamessiah edition) … Barry Soetoro’s global wealth redistribution plan, S.2433, has been placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar for pending debate.
“Cliff Kincaid at Accuracy in Media has published a critique asserting that while the Global Poverty Act sounds nice, the adoption could “result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States” and would make levels “of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the UN.”
2. Aggressive and larger than usual;
3. Unafraid of cats and able to scare them away;
4. Highly fertile — female rat gives birth to 140 babies a year, four times the normal average;
5. Highly selective — Jewish residents of Jerusalem apparently are not affected by these rats.
You Can’t Fix Stupid (UN Edition) … UN tells Brits, “you must be nicer to Muslims … “Britain was told yesterday by a United Nations committee to take firm action to combat ‘negative public attitudes’ towards Muslims.
The nine-member human rights committee also criticised some of the UK’s antiterror measures.
The body, which is composed of legal experts, said it was concerned ‘ negative public attitudes towards Muslim members of society’ continued to develop in Britain.”
It is a complete mystery to me why anyone might have a “negative attititude” towards Muslims. /s
You Can’t Fix Stupid (Moonbat edition) John Hawkins takes a quick trip in his time machine and brings us this memory jogger… “What Democrats Were Saying About The Surge” …
Itza Shokka! … Media Favors Dems 100-1
The contributions add up to $315,533 to Democrats and $22,656 to Republicans — most of that to Ron Paul, who was supported by many liberals as a stalking horse to John McCain, a la Rush Limbaugh’s Operation Chaos with Hillary and Obama.
What is truly remarkable about the list is that, discounting contributions to Paul and Rudy Giuliani, who was a favorite son for many folks in the media, the totals look like this: $315,533 to Democrats, $3,150 to Republicans (four individuals who donated to McCain).
Itza Shokka! (Part 2) Guess Who? Hint: They probably used their supernatural rats in this operation … Hizbullah convoy likely hit in Iran … “A mysterious explosion in a suburb of Teheran that killed 15 people last Saturday was likely an attack on a Iranian military convoy carrying arms to Hizbullah, the Telegraph reported Friday.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards imposed a news black-out immediately after the blast, but the UK newspaper reported that it looked like sabotage was responsible for destroying the convoy as it traveled through Khavarshahar.
Bits and Pieces… “just buying gas that others won’t buy” … Gas and diesel prices at less than $3/gal? Yup, and a lot of Texicans are taking advantage…
“The cross-border commerce is raising the ire of some Mexican fuel consumers in Juarez; they don’t like the idea of U.S. consumers taking advantage of fuel prices kept artificially low courtesy of their own tax dollars.”
Speaking of the Mexican border, I don’t know how I missed this … “Last week,columnist Paul Weyrich reported that there is credible evidence that Osama bin Laden has acquired twenty suitcase-sized nuclear bombs from Chechen rebels in the former Soviet Union and smuggled them into the United States by way of the Mexican border.”

WFFOT: “as Robert Pirsig puts it, “The world’s greatest fool may say the Sun is shining, but that doesn’t make it dark out.”
