Laura In Town

The First Lady was in Providence last night giving aid and comfort to the enemy. At a fund raiser for the Missing Linc, she stood with the man who has made her husband's job that much harder.
Now I understand what the POV is of the ruling elites in the Republican party, but they are wrong. If supporting a clown like Chafee, is how they see keeping a Republican majority in the Senate, then again I say, let's loose. Think about it, we have a majority only when it suits the ego of an idiot like Linc, when he wants to be a "maverick" and get the adoration of the media, well then...
Running the nation is more than majorities and consensus. It is standing up for what is right and best for the nation. I thought that POTUS was on the path with the War On Terror, but there are many times that his domestic policy has driven me to drink. I know that isn't far to go, but hey it's a great line.

P.S. Last night there were a handful of the usual suspect out in front of the Biltmore Hotel walking in circles and channeling their inner Commie. They were loud and limited, one local news report said there were about a dozen of them, while the local NBC affiliate said there were dozens and then had clips of them shouting into the camera about blah, blah and more blah.

I'm Jumping In To The DaVinci Debate

I was going to ignore it. I felt that the best thing to do was let it die a nice quiet death, but to paraphrase Michael Corleone; Every time they open their mouths they drag me back in.

This header in USA Today (just in case you're wondering, I got a free copy today, and well I figured it would help me get some things to write about) Got me all excited:
'Da Vinci Code' backs away from book

Well I was intrigued, until I read the story and found these lines:
In the movie, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) expresses doubt about that idea.
At one climactic point, Langdon says, "History shows Jesus was an extraordinary man. Why couldn't Jesus have been divine and still have been a father?"
That line was not in the book.

Wow that really puts to rest the Jesus was had kids with Mary Magdalene and didn't die on the cross sub-text of the story. Right? No? Yea not for me either.

So Why get involved? Because they keep opening up their mouths. They slammed the movie in another part of the web page. The review contains such important problems as:
While it retains most of the complex twists and turns of Dan Brown's best seller, some of the elements that have sparked protests among devout Christians
— questions about the divinity of Jesus Christ and his lineage — have had their edges smoothed. It doesn't help that the pacing is weighed down in exposition and talkiness.
Where the movie deviates from the book most strikingly is in the attitude of the lead character, Harvard symbology professor Robert Langdon (a surprisingly wooden Tom Hanks in a new, longer coif). The movie dials down his academic fervor, and ratchets up his spirituality. In the book, he did not discuss prayer. In the movie he does.
The movie also avoids the book's graphic depiction of a sex rite.

Okay, so the movie stinks because it DOESN'T slam Christianity ENOUGH. Give me an effing break. Compared to this tripe The Last Temptation of Christ was pro God.Actually compared to DaVinci it was. All the stuff that Christians complained about in the movie, were dream temptations from Satan, not "THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS" that this book, and movie lays out.

But I ask this, if you are offended by the point of this movie, just stay home. Don't protest it, just let it die the big budget death it deserves. Or go see United 93.

Yea That's Important!

So in today's USA Today there was a wonderful story about Tony Snow's first official presser. They didn't mention that he refused to let Helen the Troll interrupt ant change the topic, but they did mention this:

Although Snow has conducted two off-camera briefings since officially starting his new job May 8, this was his first televised performance. Looking like a corporate executive in a blue pin-stripe suit, white shirt, and red power tie - plus TV makeup

And they say they're not biased over there. HA! Yea because the point they are trying to make is ...Does anyone know what the point of the TV makeup line is?

Some How The Fishwrap Missed This One.

The Missing Linc voted last Thursday to defeat H.R.4297 Title: To provide for reconciliation pursuant to section 201(b) of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2006. A.K.A. Tax Relief Act of 2005 - Title I: Extension Of Expiring Provisions.
Wow why would anyone want to keep taxes low when the economy is still moving forward, yes forward! This is the guy that people who want me to vote for him call fiscally conservative, HA.

He also voted against extending the exemption from the Alternative Minimum Tax for individuals through 2006. You see every time you vote to let a tax cut die, you are voting to raise taxes. And when you vote to raise taxes you vote to slow down the economy, and when you slow down the economy the government collects less taxes and... You get the picture.

Deficits are not evil no matter that Dick Wolf says it is his least favorite word, when being interviewed by the master of pretentiousness James Lipton. To bad his leftist bias doesn't let him see that his Phillips Andover Academy classmate GWB knows what he's talking about when it comes to the economy and taxes.

Back to Chafee, he is a Democrat and I wish he would admit it.

POTUS Is Wrong On This One

We need real border security, not a temporary fix from National Guard Men and Women standing next to resentful over-worked Border Patrol Men and Women.
We need real visa reform, allowing QUALIFIED immigrants into this country for as long as they have jobs. Not some bogus Temporary Guest Worker plan that is wrong on three counts. They are not Temporary. They are not Guests. And most of them don't Work.

Well we will see what he says tonight, but I'm not hopeful.

Posting This From A Friend.

Lost a biker friend last week.
Please forward this on to people on your email list as a reminder that riding season is upon us once again!
ThanksTo those of you who are my biker friends, you will truly appreciate this.What a terrific description of who bikers really are!

But, You Didn't See Me
I saw you,
Hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line.
But, you didn't see me,
Put an extra $10.00 in the collection plate last Sunday.
I saw you,
Pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk.
But, you didn't see me,
Playing Santa at the local mall.
I saw you,
Change your mind about going into the restaurant.
But, you didn't see me,
Attending a meeting to raise more money for the hurricane relief.
I saw you,
Roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by.
But, you didn't see me,
Driving behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car Window.
I saw you,
Frown at me when I smiled at your children.
But, you didn't see me,
When I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.
I saw you,
Stare at my long hair.
But, you didn't see me,
And my friends cut ten inches off for Locks of Love.
I saw you,
Roll your eyes at our leather coats and gloves.
But, you didn't see me,
And my brothers donate our old coats and gloves to those that had
I saw you,
Look in fright at my tattoos.
But, you didn't see me,
Cry as my children were born and have their names written over and in
My heart.
I saw you,
Change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.
But, you didn't see me,
Going home to be with my family.
I saw you,
Complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be.
But, you didn't see me,
When you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.
I saw you,
Yelling at your kids in the car.
But, you didn't see me,
Pat my child's hands, knowing he was safe behind me.
I saw you,
Reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road.
But, you didn't see me,
Squeeze my wife's leg when she told me to take the next turn.
I saw you,
Race down the road in the rain.
But, you didn't see me,
Get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on His
I saw you,
Run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time.
But, you didn't see me,
Trying to turn right.
I saw you,
Cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in.
But, you didn't see me,
Leave the road.
I saw you,
Waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.
But, you didn't see me.
I wasn't there.
I saw you,
Go home to your family.
But, you didn't see me.
Because, I died that day you cut me off.
I was just a biker,.....
A person with friends and a family.

Please, take the extra second to look for motorcycles. We have a hardenough time trying to stay alive avoiding drunk drivers and old people who can't see a Mack truck, let alone a bike; people talking on phones and amusing themselves with other distractions. Take the extra second. It won't kill you, but it could save MY life or one of my biker friends
