Via the internet.

For Our Democrat Friends:

"Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. And without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for herself or himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher."

For Our Republican Friends:

Here's wishing all of You a
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!!

On a forum I was perusing the other day I happened to notice a link to this girl's myspace spot.

What is odd about it you might ask? Well, after you sift through all of the inane commie crap (that obviously isn't believed by the author even), you will find her musical interests. Among the list are Vanilla Muffins, Angelic Upstarts, Cock Sparrer, "some ska" and "some alternative". Hmmm...for a girl who is spouting her belief in communism, why would she listen to bands that are exclusively labeled as Rock Against Communism (RAC) bands?

Nice work Melanie. Perhaps that's why it was abandoned in September of this year. Perhaps she is part of a larger group of "communists" who see the ideology for what it really is: fashionable. She has probably seen the manifesto but hasn't read it; thinks it's cool to have a copy of Das Kapital collecting dust on a shelf without reading it and pasting words such as 'proletariat', 'working class' and 'Oi!' on the internet without knowing their meaning. Again, nice work Melanie; I am sure your parents are proud of the money they wasted on your political science degree (no, really). How exactly does a corporate giant like Wet Seal fit into your ideology again?

A Man In The Arena, perhaps you should give her a call. She is from Boston...supposedly.

Alright, nearly everyone knows now that Tookie Williams is deed. So be it. I can say that given the research and reading that I did; he got what he deserved. I am glad that the California Governor stuck to his decision and made the one that he did.

Here at Minus the Nemesis, we get strange keyword requests every now and again that have people land here. With some of the people I wonder how they figured out how to type, some others knew what they were looking for. Here is an example of a clueless one: "raymond lee washington crips murdered". While it may fit into either category, I would put it in the 'knew what they were looking for' pile. The reasoning being that this person is convinced that Tooks was murdered, not executed as he deserved. I would agree if Tooks was shanked with a sharpened-toothbrush in the chow hall line, but Tooks was a murderer. It is a shame that there are people out there that are so convinced they are right that they shut out all logic and reasoning. Tooks is gone, so be it. That is all.

As of 10 minutes ago, the California High Court has refused Tookie's stay of execution request. What this basically means is that Tooks will be executed on Tuesday as planned...and deserved as some may say. The only thing that may stop the execution is the granting of clemency by Gov. Schwarzenegger. Honestly, I am not so sure what makes Tookie so special. He murdered people and was convicted of the crime. Because he has written some books refuting his entire life's wrongdoings, many seem to think that this grants immunity to the Rule of Law and gives special circumstance.

While not entirely an even comparison, think if Chuck Manson began to write some "I'm sorry society" books, would that be grounds for granting parole? The answer is an emphatic and resounding NO! I don't see what the big deal is here...why is Tooks so special?

Kris over at Of Punk Rock and Politics has launched a great rendition of a famous poem/story, check this out!
How the Left Stole Christmas

Every Who
Down in Who-ville
Liked Christmas a lot...

But the Folks
Who lived just Left of Who-ville,
Did NOT!

The Left hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be that their heads weren't screwed on quite right.
It could be, perhaps, that their shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that their brains were two sizes too small.

Whatever the reason,
Their brains or his shoes,
They stood there on Christmas Eve, hating the Whos,
Staring down from their caves with a sour, grouchy frown
At the warm lighted windows below in their town.

"All those holiday trees!" they snarled with a sneer.
"Tomorrow is x-mas! It's practically here!"
Then George Soros growled, his fingers nervously drumming,
"I MUST find a way to keep Christmas from coming!"
For, tomorrow, he knew...

...All the Who girls and boys
Would wake up bright and early. They'd rush for their toys!
And then! Oh, the noise! Oh, the noise! Noise! Noise! Noise!
That's one thing he hated! The NOISE! NOISE! NOISE! NOISE!

Then the Whos, young and old, would sit down to a feast.
And they'd feast! And they'd feast!
They would start singing carols with Jesus’s name
Imagine the scandal! Imagine the shame!

They'd do something he liked least of all!
Every Who down in Who-ville, the tall and the small,
Would stand close together, with grace and finesse.
And say merry Christmas, in public no less!

And they'd sing! And they'd sing!
And the more the Left thought of the Who-Christmas-Sing
The more the Left thought, "We must stop this whole thing!
It’s unconstitutional! We must stop it now!
We MUST stop Christmas from coming!
...But HOW?"

Then they got an idea!
An awful idea!

"I know just what to do!" Michael Newdow declared
With a cold twisted smile and cold twisted glare.
And he chuckled, and clucked, from his head to his heels
"I'll go to the ninth circuit court of appeals!"

"All I need are supporters..."
The man looked around.
But in Who-ville support was quite scarce to be found.
Did that stop Mr. Newdow...?
No! The man simply said,
"If they don't see it my way, I'll make them instead!"
So he called up his friends at the ACLU
To pursue every caroling, Christmasing Who.

They sued all the cities
Each park and each town
Wherever a Jesus or Mary was found

With funds from George Soros
They hired the best
Until even the Who's
Became filled with unrest.

Caving in to the pressure, they fell to their knees
And their shops started marketing holiday trees
In Who-ville the grandeur had turned to unease
The Salvation Army was asked to leave too
In case it offended some sensitive Who

And all the Who plays in all the Who schools
Sang carols acceptable with the new rules.
Like "Merry Little Winter," "White Holiday" too.
But which holiday, no Who really knew

Then the leftists applauded, they thought they had won
Till one grouchy Who came and spoiled their fun
With a stick up his butt and a frown on his face
O'Reilly stepped forward, "Oh, what a disgrace!"
"They're secular pinheads, yes, that's what they are!"
"Their little agenda has gone way too far!"

Then he put on a coat, and a hat and a beard
And hitched up a sleigh while the Leftists all jeered
He rode into town, shouting "Christmas for all!"
"You fascists can suck on my Christmas tree ball!"

And the Left became angry, so very irate
But some others in Who-ville said, "Wait, now just wait"
"Perhaps this O'Reilly has something to say"
"Perhaps we've let Christmas just whither away"

And some but not all of the shopkeepers then
Began shouting out "Merry Christmas" again
And children sang carols aloud in the snow
While Christmas trees stood in the midst all aglow

And as for George Soros
Well...in Who-ville they say
The vein in his forehead
Grew three sizes that day!

Hollywood's politics aside, there are some promising films to come out (or are already out). I had written a piece on the Inklings a while back describing the ignorance of the hard-core Christian who places an evil on the books of Rowling, Lewis and Tolkien without having even read them. 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe' did very well at the box office as did George Clooney's propaganda piece, 'Syriana'. Hmm...wonder if politics plays any part in that movie. A movie that I will be going to see is called 'Munich'. It details the events and subsequent murders surrounding the 1972 Olympics. All of these movies did better than the Scientology movement's 'War of the Worlds'. That movie could have done so much better without the fake religion's frontman spouting off every ten minutes.

I guess that is a downside to capitalism; money gives you a mouthpiece. If you don't have money, you could always turn to the biased media to get your message out. Just look at Sheehan and her merry band of losers! Kum By Ya dummies.

With the last two requests for clemency being denied by Governor Schwarzenegger, the outlook does not look good for Tookie Williams. In spite of those statistics, there is the whole CONVICTION and everything. But wait! Apparently, there is someone who thinks that they may have information proving that Tooks didn't commit one of the murders in 1979. So now Tooks' out-of-whack supporters will have something else to cheer about. I can see it now: "He only killed three; not all four." Well, by God let the crook out then! Wrong. Too little too late. That being said, why did this mystery person wait until now to come forward to lend the "evidence" to the judicial system? Sounds like a stalling tactic to me.

I just think it's a bit of a shame that you couldn't get away with this type of motivation today. The American left has weakened the nation and turned it into a softer, more vulnerable version of its historical self. Take a look at these words and think about how they are (or aren't) allowed to apply in today's world; a lot seems to have changed.
"Be Seated."

"Men, this stuff we hear about America wanting to stay out of the war, not wanting to fight, is a lot of bullshit. Americans love to fight - traditionally. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble player; the fastest runner; the big league ball players; the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win - all the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans have never lost, not ever will lose a war, for the very thought of losing is hateful to an American."

"You are not all going to die. Only two percent of you here today would die in a major battle. Death must not be feared. Every man is frightened at first in battle. If he says he isn't, he's a goddamn liar. Some men are cowards, yes! But they fight just the same, or get the hell shamed out of them watching men who do fight who are just as scared. The real hero is the man who fights even though he is scared. Some get over their fright in a minute under fire, some take an hour. For some it takes days. But the real man never lets fear of death overpower his honor, his sense of duty to this country and his innate manhood."

"All through your army career you men have bitched about "This chickenshit drilling." That is all for a purpose. Drilling and discipline must be maintained in any army if for only one reason -- INSTANT OBEDIENCE TO ORDERS AND TO CREATE CONSTANT ALERTNESS. I don't give a damn for a man who is not always on his toes. You men are veterans or you wouldn't be here. You are ready. A man to continue breathing must be alert at all times. If not, sometime a German son-of-a-bitch will sneak up behind him and beat him to death with a sock full of shit."

"There are 400 neatly marked graves somewhere in Sicily all because one man went to sleep on his job -- but they were German graves for we caught the bastard asleep before his officers did. An Army is a team. Lives, sleeps, eats, fights as a team. This individual heroic stuff is a lot of crap. The bilious bastards who wrote that kind of stuff for the Saturday Evening Post don't know any more about real fighting, under fire, than they do about fucking. We have the best food, the finest equipment, the best spirit and the best fighting men in the world. Why, by God, I actually pity these poor sons-of-bitches we are going up against. By God, I do!"

"My men don't surrender. I don't want to hear of any soldier under my command being captured unless he is hit. Even if you are hit, you can still fight. That's not just bullshit, either. The kind of man I want under me is like the lieutenant in Libya, who, with a Lugar against his chest, jerked off his helmet, swept the gun aside with one hand and busted hell out of the Boche with the helmet. Then he jumped on the gun and went out and killed another German: All this with a bullet through his lung. That's a man for you."

"All real heroes are not story book combat fighters either. Every man in the army plays a vital part. Every little job is essential. Don't ever let down, thinking your role is unimportant. Every man has a job to do. Every man is a link in the great chain. What if every truck driver decided that he didn't like the whine of the shells overhead, turned yellow and jumped headlong into the ditch? He could say to himself, "They won't miss me -- just one in thousands." What if every man said that? Where in hell would we be now? No, thank God, Americans don't say that! Every man does his job; every man serves the whole. Every department, every unit, is important to the vast scheme of things. The Ordnance men are needed to supply the guns, the Quartermaster to bring up the food and clothes to us -- for where we're going there isn't a hell of a lot to steal. Every last man in the mess hall, even the one who heats the water to keep us from getting the GI shits has a job to do. Even the chaplain is important, for if we get killed and if he is not there to bury us we'd all go to hell."

"Each man must not only think of himself, but of his buddy fighting beside him. We don't want yellow cowards in this army. They should all be killed off like flies. If not they will go back home after the war and breed more cowards. The brave men will breed brave men. Kill off the goddamn cowards and we'll have a nation of brave men."

"One of the bravest men I ever saw in the African campaign was the fellow I saw on top of a telegraph pole in the midst of furious fire while we were plowing toward Tunis. I stopped and asked what the hell he was doing up there at that time. He answered, "Fixing the wire, sir." "Isn't it a little unhealthy right now?," I asked. "Yes sir, but this goddamn wire's got to be fixed." There was a real soldier. There was a man who devoted all he had to his duty, no matter how great the odds, no matter how seemingly insignificant his duty might appear at the time."

"You should have seen those trucks on the road to Gabes. The drivers were magnificent. All day and all night they rolled over those son-of-a-bitching roads, never stopping, never faltering from their course, with shells bursting around them all the time. We got through on good old American guts. Many of these men drove over forty consecutive hours. These weren't combat men. But they were soldiers with a job to do. They did it -- and in a whale of a way they did it. They were part of a team. Without them the fight would have been lost. All the links in the chain pulled together and that chain became unbreakable."

"Don't forget, you don't know I'm here. No word of the fact is to be mentioned in any letters. The world is not supposed to know what the hell became of me. I'm not supposed to be commanding this Army. I'm not even supposed to be in England. Let the first bastards to find out be the goddamn Germans. Someday I want them to raise up on their hind legs and howl, 'Jesus Christ, it's the goddamn Third Army and that son-of-a-bitch Patton again.'"

"We want to get the hell over there. We want to get over there and clear the goddamn thing up. You can't win a war lying down. The quicker we clean up this goddamn mess, the quicker we can take a jaunt against the purple pissing Japs an clean their nest out too, before the Marines get all the goddamn credit."

"Sure, we all want to be home. We want this thing over with. The quickest way to get it over is to get the bastards. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin. When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, a Boche will get him eventually, and the hell with that idea. The hell with taking it. My men don't dig foxholes. I don't want them to. Foxholes only slow up an offensive. Keep moving. And don't give the enemy time to dig one. We'll win this war but we'll win it only by fighting and by showing the Germans we've got more guts than they have."

"There is one great thing you men will all be able to say when you go home. You may thank God for it. Thank God, that at least, thirty years from now, when you are sitting around the fireside with your grandson on your knees, and he asks you what you did in the great war, you won't have to cough and say, 'I shoveled shit in Louisiana.' No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, 'Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Third Army and a Son-of-a-Goddamned-Bitch named George Patton!'"

"That is all."

If you have never seen the movie "PCU" with Jeremy Piven and David Spade, it is definitely worth a watch. In it you will find the definition of the "Cause Head". They pick an "important" issue and stick with it...for about a week. In this case, these Cause Heads have chosen the issue of Tookie Williams (co-founder of the gang called the Crips) getting killed via the death penalty he earned. Personally, I think that although Tooks may be a nice guy now and trying to say "sorry", that does not change the fact that he brutally murdered 4 people years ago.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

At any rate, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is now faced whether to give Tooks clemency by staying his execution, or having him executed. Kind of a difficult decision to be making. In this case, Tooks had a competent lawyer and was tried by a competent jury and he was in fact, found guilty. So long Tooks.

What I find hilarious about the caliber of Tookie's supporters such as the dolts pictured above is that they are, in fact, Cause Heads in the truest definition. Take for example their slogan: "Smash the Racist Death Penalty". If they are to stick with this slogan, they are calling the black man a racist for the numbers are clear. The name of the statistics is: "RACIAL STATISTICS OF EXECUTIONS and DEATH ROW IN THE UNITED STATES". That would seem to be a bit hard to cherry-pick to make your point, but these dummies found a way...I don't know how.

What you will find if you actually choose to do the research vice take to the streets armed with stupidity such as these "supporters" have, is that blacks comprise of 34% of the executed with 338 dead, Hispanics comprise of 6% of the executed with 63 dead, whites comprise of 58% of the executed with 579 dead and others comprise of 2.3% of the executed and 22 dead. This last number may be in direct correlation to the brains of Tookie supporters, I am not sure. At any rate, with the whites consisting of 58% of the executed I don't see how these morons can possibly turn it into a racial issue, yet someone always tries.

Here is a new slogan for you dummies (one that actually has logic and reasoning behind it): "Capitalism: Smash the Welfare State". I suppose that "Read A Newspaper or Book" would also apply.

Streisand Looks Like a Rat

A couple of questions immediately pop into mind when I read how Barbara Streisand cancelled her subscription to the LA Times. First, where will Barbara Streisand receive her liberal tripe from? Perhaps now she will have to resort to the old standby tinfoil hat to communicate with Moonbat Central? Is this even worth the attention it's getting (no)? Do you even care what Barbara Streisand reads? Lastly, and most importantly: what is she going to line the bottom of her cage with now that her subscription is cancelled?

Today is 7 December, 2005. It was 64 years ago today that the Japanese bombed the US Naval Fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. It has been 63 years, 364 days since FDR made his "Day of Infamy" speech; read it if you have not.

As historical content sits the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor because they saw our moving there as a threat to the Japanese Empire's southward expansion. As a result of the surprise attack, America was thrust into WWII; now at war with Japan. Perhaps the reasoning behind the Japanese government seeing the American move to Pearl Harbor as a threat to expansion was solidified 18 months earlier when then President FDR moved the fleet to the harbor as a deterrent to Japanese aggression.

To define this attack we must look farther into the past; beyond that initial 18-month move to Pearl Harbor. Looking back to 1937 when Japan began its war with China, the Japanese forces were in need of supplies in the forms of oil, gas and other raw materials. Come 1941, western powers effectively halted trade with Japan. The Japanese saw an opportunity to take the oil and mineral-rich East Indies as well as Southeast Asia to meet their logistical shortcomings. Although contact with the Japanese government was still ongoing, it was clearly coming to an end. US officials were well informed of Japanese intents insofar that they would attack places such as Malaya, the Philippines as well as the Indies. They were also well informed to the extent that the US could read their codes. What was not suspected was what actually happened; an attack east on eastern grounds.

Just before 0800 hours, the Japanese struck the fleet and managed to either sink or badly damage 5 of 8 battleships stationed at the harbor. Apparently tossing diplomatic relations and governmental ties to the wind, the Japanese also destroyed nearly all of the US Air Force in the Philippines along with landing an army on the shores of Malaya. Due to the distance of Hawaii from Japan alone it is clear that despite any showing of negotiating officials, the attack was planned and inevitable.

Up to this point, I believe that most American's were divided on whether or not to engage in WWII. After the fact and 2,400 lives lost the American's weren't divided and some say shared more unity than ever before. I would like to point now to some of what FDR said on 8 December, 1941:
"With confidence in our armed forces--with the unbounding determination of our people--we will gain the inevitable triumph--so help us God."
That's right: "so help us God". This was a time when people weren't in such an uproar about proclaiming un-Godly acts just that. It truly was a time of unbounding determination of our people and unity in that fact. What is truly a shame is that with the events of 11 September 2001, people don't seem to share these same values, nor care about innocent lives lost. Such dissent and hatred is found in the anti-American rhetoric of persons like Ward Churchill, Michael Moore, nearly all of Hollywood, Noam Chomsky, Cindy Sheehan and even people whose opinions actually do hold some leverage with the previously unified and determined people: select politicians. People are more concerned with whether or not they will offend anyone than using common sense and doing what needs to be done. More and more I see politicians stumping for votes and erring on the side of appeasement rather than coming up with viable solutions to an obviously growing problem.

We are faced with a new enemy in today's world: the terrorist. Rather than become united once again against a common foe, the America from days past is again, divided. Something is fundamentally wrong with that! Terrorism is an obvious problem and some are just not willing to face it and support those that actually are. This division is creating a rift that is damaging to the very way of life we are so desperately trying to defend as of late. It is because of the unwilling that we have become divided; the anti-war crowd (this demoralizes troops; no one hates war more than those who are taken from the relative comfort of their American life and thrust into battle), the anti-recruiter crowd (recruiters, who are a mediary for some, to a better life than they have ever known), domestic terrorist "organizations" that are becoming a growing concern to our internal security, and internationally recognized terrorist groups that operate on our shores with relative autonomy due to "too much policy, not enough deterrent/curtailment".

It is time for the divided American's to become unified once again and put aside our paltry issues in dealing with all the finger-pointing and he said, she said tripe. It is time to eliminate these very realistic threats and give the willing the support they need. This is easier said than done, I realize. It is nevertheless an attainable goal if people just used some common sense. Both the left and the right need to wake up and realize this common goal. The right should return to its more core values while the left should come up with some values to return to. Without common sense in the upper echelons, nothing will be solved. Give it some thought.

Apparently, the Zip Tower had other plans. South Dakota's tallest building, the Zip Tower is all of 202 feet. They tried to demolish the building like you usually see on TV and whatnot, but no dice for this concrete structure. It seems like even the demolition company is saying something like: "seriously, it's only 202 freakin' feet tall dummy; how much TNT do you think we need?" Well, a bit more I guess.

In the end and given the circumstances of South Dakota's tallest building not really being all that tall, the Mayor called in a favor to Jean Claude van Damage to roundhouse the rest of the structure down. Ever grateful, the Mayor gave the keys to the city to van Damage. Someone then yelled "hey, there's Chuck Vito!" at which point van Damage disappeared virtually into thin air, never to be seen again.

...and his supporters should be absolutley ashamed of themselves. Here is the full account of Williams' crimes. An exerpt:
What man orders another human being to lie face down on the floor and then proceeds to shoot him two times in the back at close range with a shotgun? What man later laughs when he tells his friends how the victim gurlgled as he lay dying? Stanley Williams, the admiited co-founder of one of the most violent gangs in existence, is that man. What man, days after shotgunning Albert Owens to death, forces his way into a motel and executes three members of a single family? Stanley Williams is that man.
The idea of clemency is disgusting:
1. Despite repeated requests, Williams has never allowed himself to be debriefed by law enforcement concerning his crimes and the Crips street gang.
2. Williams has never apologized for the four exceptionally violent murders he committed.
3. Williams has never given up association with the Crips street gang.
4. Williams has a long record of violent behavior after his conviction and supposed reformation.

And what if, despite every available fact, Williams has indeed found Jesus and is born-again? I think then Texas Governor Bush put it best:
...judgments about the heart and soul of an individual on death row are best left to a higher authority.
I hope you burn in hell, Stanley Williams. I truly do.
