The Michael "Meathead" Stivic Of The Week Award

This week it is a no-brainer, both in the question of who to choose, and in the person who said the following:
"If I read this to you and did not tell you that it was an FBI agent describing what Americans had done to prisoners in their control, you would most certainly believe this must have been done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime—Pol Pot or others—that had no concern for human beings. Sadly, that is not the case. This was the action of Americans in the treatment of their prisoners. "

These words of misunderstood history and hatred for the military, are from the senior Senator from Illinois, Richard "Dick" Durbin.

By now, if you are reading this post you have already heard this tripe, and have already commented somewhere about this excuse for a "public servant".

What else is there to say except: congratulations Senator, you make the people of Illinois sick to their stomachs, and the Islamist's jubilant.

Protest For The Sake Of Protest

The most vile human Fred Phelps, he of the myopic version of the Bible, is planning on protesting at the funeral of a young Idaho Reservist killed in Iraq.

Carrie French, 19, will be buried Wednesday with full military honors; the funeral is expected to draw a large gathering of friends, family members and media, her father said

"It's going to be big," he said

This world class ASSHAT will be declaring that this young lady died because God is mad that "his" (Phelps') church was bombed 6 years ago, 911 happened because of the same thing. This clown beliefs that God is on his side.

I'm sorry if God is on this guys side where does that leave the rest of us?

All I can say is it is a good thing for Phelps that this funeral is not closer to my home, because there would be a small contingent of friends, willing to remind him what Americans will and will not put up with.

Thanks (I think) to cptham for telling me about this. For further info go to The Mudville Gazette. Thanks

Fame, Celebrity And The Future

My God!
That is all I can say now, one day after 12 regular people sided with the Famous One and not the Angry One in that California courtroom. There are friends of mine who heard more yesterday, but today...

And yet I don't know why I'm surprised. Fame has its privileges and fame is the name of the new American game. Think about it, when was the last time Michael Jackson recorded anything you wanted to hear? When was the last time Robert Blake was on any kind of screen without an under-employed lawyer telling you what it all means.
People are famous just for being famous, one case in point Paris Hilton.
Now the lure of fame is just getting worse out there, need proof how about this list of the Top 25 in the Discovery Channel's 100 Greatest Americans. (cap tip Cass at VC)
OH MY GOD! There may be a half dozen people on this list who should be considered GREAT, the rest are just famous. And there are people (Hope and Einstein) who aren't even AMERICANS (yes I know Bob Hope did a lot for the troops and loved this country but...).
Okay I realize that I may be over reacting, but fame and greatness aren't even the same type of measurements, look ate who is on this last and look at the people who made the Top 100, there are so many useless famous people on both lists, while Greatness is diluted to include Bill Clinton???!!!??? Need I say more.

Think about this and if you have anything to say get back to me.
