I could go for a day at the beach…

6 May

You know, to look at all the little things our eyes don’t normally track.

Like the awesome color of these rocks.

Trees? On a beach? Way cool!

There’s a hot dog stand!

I think this might be the new 450 cc model.

If only I could cut an album…

    Someone smells a disaster, methinks:

    “If I had one thing to do over again I would not have talked so much about green… Even though I believe in global warming and I believe in the science… it just took on a connotation that was too elitist; it was too precious and it let opponents think that if you had a green initiative, you didn’t care about jobs. I’m a businessman. That’s all I care about, is jobs… I’m kind of over the stage of arguing for a comprehensive energy policy. I’m back to keeping my head down and working.”

    Denmark goes full Islam:

    A Danish court has found a leading Islamic expert guilty of racism for his comments about Muslims, the latest ruling in an ongoing battle between free speech and Islam in Europe.

    Lars Hedegaard was charged with racism under Denmark’s hate speech law after telling someone at a gathering about the problem of rape committed against Muslim girls by male relatives.

    Interesting….

    Slain al Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden was plotting to derail American trains on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, documents seized from his Pakistani hideout reveal, officials said yesterday.
    The plot — which indicates bin Laden was intimately involved with planning attacks right up until his death — was to sabotage the rails, forcing trains off the tracks on a bridge or over a chasm, the documents show.

    Good lord. Are you serious?

    The U.S. military’s success in Pakistan this week proved the importance of maintaining a team focused on accomplishing dangerous missions. Others on the left prefer to look upon the armed forces as a playground to experiment with fringe ideas. Take the Air Force Academy which reportedly held a ceremony on Tuesday to dedicate a pile of rocks in the academy’s “worship area for followers of Earth-centered religions.”

    This is a space cadets can use to perform rituals if they happen to be witches, warlocks and tree-worshipers. Overlooking the visitor center, the stone circle is designed for the benefit of a handful of those claiming to be Wiccans or Druids.

    David Koch has it right:

    Considering the stark partisan divide over the amount of credit President Obama deserves for the death of Osama bin Laden, it should probably not come as a surprise that billionaire David Koch, a rabidly anti-Obama conservative activist, isn’t ready to throw any praise Obama’s way. Strolling toward the dining area last night at the Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Spring Ball, he told us that it was the military and intelligence agencies that deserved all the credit, while “all that Obama did was say ‘yea’ or ‘nay,’ we’re going to take him out or not. I don’t think he contributed much at all.”

    Missouri is in an interesting place where the state is: losing a Congressional seat; just coming off an election cycle where they flipped a seat to the GOP (making the current ratio 6 GOP / 3 DEM) ; and in possession of an almost veto-proof Republican legislature. So, Missouri Republicans decided to handle the situation by creating a 6 GOP / 2 DEM district map that cut up Russ Carnahan’s district and forced him to compete in a heavily African-American district (as per the Voting Rights Act) against incumbent William Lacy Clay. They also more or less left Emanuel Cleaver’s seat alone – Rep. Cleaver does not represent a majority-minority district, by the way; this will be important later. And then the legislature sent the map to Democratic governor Jay Nixon, who promptly vetoed it.

    Oddly enough, when it came to the override, four Democrats crossed over to vote for the map, thus overriding the veto! Oddly enough, all four are African-Americans (who readily admitted that they were protecting Clay’s and Cleaver’s seats)! And oddly enough, Russ is not taking it well! And by ‘not taking it well’ I mean ‘engaging in profanity-laden, bitterly sarcastic invective,’ although I’m not entirely certain that Russ can actually spell any of those words*. It’s probably not helping that the Carnahan name may be a bit… colored, in Missouri African-American eyes… by virtue of past history.

  80. Jazz May 6, 2011 at 12:30 pm #

    The problem of first-personalizing national security is twofold. One, it is not consistent. Good news is reported by Obama in terms of “I”; bad news is delivered as “reset,” “the previous administration,” “in the past”: All good things abroad are due to Obama himself; all bad things are still the blowback from George W. Bush.

    Two, there is the small matter of hypocrisy. The protocols for taking out Osama bin Laden were all established by President Bush and all opposed by Senator and then candidate Obama. Yet President Obama never seeks to explain that disconnect; indeed, he emphasizes it by the overuse of the first person. When the president reminds us this week of what “over the years I’ve repeatedly made clear,” does he include his opposition to what he now has institutionalized?

    I think there will be repercussions from the hit, and most of them will turn out to be good in terms of the War on Terror.

    1) The world must now realize that the domestic antiwar movement is dead, kaput; it cares not a whit whether we assassinate bin Laden or a son of Qaddafi or go into Libya. . . .

    2) For all the talk of “leading from behind” and the quagmire in Libya, the truth is that the U.S. military remains preeminent and transcends the administration in power at any given time. . . .

    3) There is much talk of a payback to come. But the triumphalism of unapologetically celebrating the death of bin Laden also conveys a newfound confidence, or perhaps even fatalism, a sort of Bring it on, let’s get it over with once and for all . . . .

    4) Radical Islam has been incrementally and steadily weakened over the last decade. It has not repeated a 9/11-like operation.

    Some plaintiffs “preventively detained” for an “indeterminate” period at “al-Qaeda’s chief recruiting tool” in a lame-duck Guantanamo offered critical information about bin Laden’s otherwise not very important “pawns” and “couriers”; some even did so after being subject to superfluous and not very legal “enhanced interrogation techniques.” We then dispatched a questionable “assassination” team into a sovereign nation without its consent, executed bin Laden and various unnamed others, praised our “partnership” with Pakistan, apparently for allowing bin Laden to live with impunity among their retired military for five years — and have finally established a narrative that the problem with Bush-era antiterrorism protocols was never their efficacy, morality, or legality, but simply the president who established them. Keep or expand the former, change the latter, and we have a new national consensus on the tools necessary in the War on Terror.

    Ya know how sometimes somebody says something and it stays with you a really long time?

    Well a few years ago, an educator was talking about kids and grades (I think it was in regards to college kids, but it can be applied universally). She said you ask a kid what grade they got in a class, and here is what they will tell you:

    If it’s an “A”, they’ll tell you, “I made an A”, whether they worked hard for it/deserved it or not.

    Anything lower than that and you’ll hear, “The PROFESSOR gave me a ____.” (This does not, however, hold true for kids who make less than an A, but worked REALLY hard for whatever grade they made)

    Commentary on the Hunt for Bin Laden, with a link to a full article (At WaPo, sorry):

    One more:

    Okay, what do we have here.
    1) There was a firefight.
    2) There was no firefight.
    3) Bin Laden was “resisting.”
    4) Bin Laden wasn’t armed. (Makes the concept of “resisting” interesting.)
    5) He used his wife as a shield.
    6) His wife was killed too.
    7) He didn’t use his wife as a shield, she ran at a SEAL who shot her in the leg, but she’s fine.
    Some other woman – the maid? – was used as a shield. By somebody. Downstairs.
    9) That other woman – downstairs – was killed.
    10) Maybe not. She was killed unless she wasn’t – and who was she, anyway?
    11) Bin Laden’s son was killed.
    12) Unless it was some other guy.
    13) Bin Laden’s daughter saw him get killed. She’s undoubtedly traumatized, poor dear.
    14) They were going to capture Bin Laden until the problem with the helicopter, which was:
    A) It had mechanical trouble
    B) It did a hard landing
    C) It crashed
    D) It clipped a wall with a tail rotor, effectively a crash
    15.) They were never going to try to capture him, it was always a kill mission.
    16.) No it wasn’t.
    17) The chopper blew up.
    18) The SEALs blew it up.
    19.) Panetta said yesterday the world needed proof, the photo would be released.
    20.) Obama said today in an interview he taped with Steve Kroft for “60 Minutes” to be broadcast Sunday that it won’t be released. It’s too gruesome, would offend Muslim sensibilities (something he worries about a lot – I personally do not give a warm fart on a wet Wednesday about Muslim sensibilities), and how would Americans feel if Muslims released pictures of dead Americans?
    21.) Kroft – whose not a total idiot – pointed out that ever since “Black Hawk Down” days, Muslims have been doing precisely that, filming American bodies being dragged through the streets, filming Daniel Pearl’s head being cut off, filming any and everything.
    22) Obama gets pissed at CBS, the tape gets cleaned up, that question disappears. (Inside info.)
    23.) We got a “treasure trove” of stuff from hard drives, etc.
    24.) There were no phone lines, and no internet access at the “mansion,” they didn’t even have TV – what “treasure trove?”
    25.) There is obviously in the pictures of the place a large satellite dish. I guess they used it for making salads.
    26.) And now, just today: apparently the idea was to capture him, but only if he was naked. There was a suspicion he might be wearing a suicide bomber type explosive vest, or belt. So if he’s not naked and you can’t see if he has a vest on or not – shoot him.

    I promise, it’ll be the weirdest thing you’ve seen this year.

    Saw in comments over at HA that the WH has a compilation tape of Obama’s movements the day of the Bin Laden affair (re-enacted, no doubt), complete with a standing ovation from the Cabinet.

    Someone remarked that Obama doesn’t want to spike the football, but he’s perfectly OK with performing a victory dance….

  106. Jazz May 6, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

    Dr. Milton Wolf, the President’s much more intelligent cousin, observes:

    Momentous events that have changed American history have had at their core leadership that transcended party, administration and even time. President Kennedy’s vision for the moon landing, like President Bush’s vision for the hunt for Osama bin Laden, set in motion events that changed the world.

    It would take one giant leap for mankind to pretend President Nixon was the driving force behind the Apollo missions. He deserves credit, of course, for following Kennedy’s vision, just as President Obama deserves credit for following Mr. Bush’s vision, but it would be the step of a truly small man to ignore the real visionaries.

  107. Dick May 6, 2011 at 4:24 pm #

    Yeah, this made me laugh, and it’s gonna go viral.

    I think I counted either eight or nine punches in that flurry.

    Dick, I burned a copy for mom, and saw parts, but not the whole thing. I was too busy watching One Tree Hill. I’ve got the disc somewhere though.
