Yeah, Let’s Just Send Them All To Kaho‘olawe

Thursday, June 16th, 2005

From Point Five:

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, the nation’s top law enforcement officer, today announced the creation of the “Send a Terrorist to Hawaii” program, designed to stop Islamic extremism within the United States…

Congress will be considering funding the program in committee next week. The Justice Department is asking for $300 million to fund first class flights, hotel stays, helicopter trips, snorkeling, whale watching, and a “night life stipend” in order to seduce crazed Muslims into a decadent western lifestyle filled with booze, drugs, and hookers.

Hmmm…would the military like Kaho‘olawe back for target practice?

She’s Dead and Gone, But the Case Lives On

Thursday, June 16th, 2005

Oh, dear, here we go again. I thought the autopsy report was going to settle it, but unlike Terri Schiavo, this case is refusing to die.

I mean, what is it going to take? The doctors said she was in a persistent vegetative state. The courts found no reason to disagree. And now the doctors have opened her up and found that she did have half a brain, but no more than that. Not only that, but certain myths were put to rest…no evidence of any eating disorder, no evidence of abuse…and no possibility of recovery.

And yet, the rhetoric remains. Her parents are contemplating “unspecified legal action.”

Tolerance: It’s In The Bible

Saturday, June 11th, 2005

Bemoans Melvin Partido Sr. in the Star-Bulletin, about a video shown to certain students at King Kekaulike High School:

The videotape about tolerance toward homosexuals shown to the King Kekaulike High School students on Maui is an attempt by homosexual activists to indoctrinate homosexuality into our education system….

Their definition of tolerance is that all values, beliefs, truths and lifestyles are equal. I was brought up in an era when the Holy Bible was the standard for tolerance in a nation brought up by Christian principles.

The Bible makes it clear that all values, beliefs, lifestyles and truth claims are not equal. It teaches that the God of the Bible words are true and that if something is not right it is wrong. Homosexuality is wrong.

Yesterday’s outrage has become today’s standard.

Obviously Mr. Partido hasn’t asked himself what Jesus would do, and he hasn’t read John 8:1-11. The Bible makes it pretty darn clear here that tolerance of other lifestyles, even those one does not agree with, is something that we are biblically required to follow (if you subscribe to Christianity, that is). What could be more fundamental to fundamentalist Christianity than the actions of Jesus Christ?

The Greatest Whistleblower of All Time

Thursday, June 2nd, 2005

W. Mark Felt. W. Mark Felt.

Nah, I like Deep Throat better.

But considering the prurient origin of the name, the 91-year-old Felt is the last person you’d ever associate with the name Deep Throat. He doesn’t look like a porn star. Although he does bear a uncanny resemblance to another politician known for his sexual escapades…

All kidding aside, the ultimate anonymous source made himself known this week, thus solving probably the greatest mystery of contemporary American history.
