Michael Moore Admits That Bush Got More Votes

Believe it or not, Michael Moore told talk show host Jay Leno that President Bush won this election fair and square.

Moore also said that people shouldn't be depressed:

"People who voted for Kerry shouldn't be depressed at this point. They should pick themselves up. ... There's another game in four years. And we'll come back and do the best we can."

Wow! For once the man sounds sane. And that's a lot more than I can say compared to a kooky Jewish liberal man who IM'd me last night on a Jewish dating site.

At first, the man seemed benign. He IM'd me saying "hi I like your profile." So I responded back saying "hi."

Then he asked me to elaborate on the fact that I'm not a pet person. So I told him that two of my sisters have dogs that I enjoy playing with, but that I otherwise don't see myself caring for a pet full time. He then asked if I thought it weird that he sleeps with his mut every night. I told him I didn't know what to say.

The man then pointed out to me that in his experience, women who keep kosher, or who grow up in kosher homes do not care much for pets. He said, get this, that it's due to the global psychic outlook. At that point, I thought to myself, "wow, that's some serious lefty psychobabble."

Then he wrote that I seemed to be the very neat "Felix Unger" type, which I'm not. And I told him so...which set him off. After that, the exchange (for lack of a better word, since I decided to just let him rant) went something like this:

Him: You're putting me on.
Me: No seriously. I don't like doing housework.
Him: Why should I believe someone who voted for a liar like George W. Bush?
Him: You Republicans are all the same. You believe the ends justify the means.
Him: And you know how I know you're lying? Because Republican women always lie about their age. Democrat women tell the truth.
Him: See! I got your number!
Him: We're done here.

And then this psycho had the nerve to block any further messages from me when he IM'd me first.

So, if any of you are curious, and want to get a load of this crazy man, please email me and I'll give you his profile name and the name of the site so you all can have a good laugh.

More Whining From the MSM

Apparently, Tom Brokaw is upset that Dick Cheney has barred New York Times reporters on any of his trips. He's also appalled that the White House has not granted self hating liberal Jew Tom Friedman an in-depth interview.
I say, more power to the White House!

The World Has Lost Its Moral Compass

Strong statement, huh?

I don't think so.

For example, the Red Cross is now complaining that the detention and treatment of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay Cuba amounts to torture.

Red Cross inspectors who visited the site in June said interrogators used "humiliating acts, solitary confinement, temperature extremes, use of forced positions" to break the will of prisoners, according to the article on the Times Web site.

These people have a lot of nerve. Why is it ok for their "Red Crescent" ambulances to smuggle suicide bombers into Israel but not ok for Americans to detain battlefield combatants in the war on terror?

I don't remember these people ever making a fuss over Saddam Hussein's torture of his own people and his gassing the Kurds. Or how about the massacre of Bosnian Serbs by the Albanian Muslims? Not a peep.

On another note, an American group wants Germany to investigate Donald Rumsfeld and other senior U.S. officers for war crimes in the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.

BERLIN (Reuters) - A U.S. human rights group urged German prosecutors Tuesday to investigate accusations that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and senior U.S. officers are guilty of war crimes over the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal.
In an unusual legal move, the U.S. Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) has filed a criminal complaint with Germany's Federal Prosecutors along with four Iraqis who say they were tortured and humiliated alongside other prisoners by U.S. soldiers at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison outside Baghdad.
CCR is taking advantage of a 2002 German law allowing prosecutions for human rights and war crimes regardless of where the acts took place or the nationalities of the perpetrators.

Now call me coldhearted, but I have no sympathy for these Iraqi terrorists (I'm not afraid of using the word, unlike "Al Reuters.") These people were incarcerated for either killing, attempting to kill, or helping kill American soldiers, NOT FOR TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS!! And the CCR, through their action, is saying that America is WORSE than those who cheer when the dismembered corpses of Americans are dragged through the streets and hung off the bridges of Falluja.

Closer to home, consummate wind bag talk show host Bill O'Reilly is actually defending Dan Rather. From O'Reilly's warped perspective, any challenge to the liberal media elite, even if it's simply pointing out that documents are forgeries, is tantamount to "character assassination" and "sliming"

Dan Rather is guilty of not being skeptical enough about a story that was politically loaded. I believe Rather, along with Andy Rooney, Walter Cronkite and other guardsmen of the old CBS News, is liberal in his thinking. That is certainly a legitimate debate - how for years CBS News has taken a rather progressive outlook. But holding a political point of view is the right of every American, and it does not entitle people to practice character assassination or
deny the presumption of innocence. Dan Rather was slimed. It was disgraceful


U.N. Reform Panel Experiences Epiphany

Could it really be? Has it finally dawned on them that terrorism doesn't pay?

A report written by the panel reportedly states that terrorism against civilians "is never an acceptable tactic, even for the most defensible of causes."

The 60-page document was drawn up by the 16-member High-Level Panel for Threats, Challenges and Change -- a panel appointed by U.N. secretary-general Kofi Annan. The report is due for release on Thursday, but leaks have started to appear in some Western media.


THIS Is What a Moral Compass Is

His name is Steve Gardner, otherwise known as "The 10th Brother" in the traitor John Kerry's "Band of Brothers." Gardner is one of two members of Kerry's swiftboat who refused to stand with him at the Democratic National Convention. He has spoken out against Kerry through newspaper stories and radio interviews, and now, he is being villified, and fired from his job, via email, at Millenium Information Services.

Gardner told this story and others to radio stations and he wrote a piece for the local paper. Then, he says, he received a phone call from John Hurley, the veterans organizer for Kerry's campaign. Hurley, Gardner says, asked him to come out for Kerry. He told Hurley to leave him alone and that he'd never be for Kerry. It was then Gardner says, he was threatened with, "You better watch your step. We can look into your finances."

And, even though Gardner is broke and jobless for speaking out, the husband and father of three says he'd do it all over again. He says it wasn't for politics. It was for America.

Now THIS is a true patriot and hero.

A Tax on Cosmetic Surgery?

There's a proposal in the state of Illinois to tax elective cosmetic surgery procedures at a rate of six percent. Naturally, The American Society of Plasitc Surgeons in not happy.
This tax is distressing on many levels," said Scott Spear, M.D., president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. "The people of Illinois should be very concerned about what this tax may mean to their health in the future."

This is not the 'luxury tax' that Mr. Hynes would like the public to believe," said Dr. Spear. "Plastic surgery, as the statistics illustrate, has become more mainstream. It is not just an indulgence of celebrities and rich people. It is a reasonable option for anyone who wants to look or feel better about their appearance."

As I see it, the reason cosmetic surgery has become "mainstream" in Dr. Spear's words is because these doctors quite successflly make their living out of people (mostly women) feeling ugly. If more women were happy with themselves, Dr. Spear and his cohorts would no doubt be stuck removing hemmorhoids.

I am also reminded of an article I read a while back in Allure magazine where two plastic surgeons were asked about what procedures they would perform on Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe to improve them. The magazine then showed all the notations and marks these doctors made on the faces of these two beautiful women illustrating how they would "fix" them.

As I write this point, I'm also thinking of that reality show "The Swan." I have never watched that show since, as you may know, I'm no fan of reality tv. But I HAVE seen before and after photos of some of the women. And the fact is, they could have looked much much better by simply losing a few pounds, dressing better, getting better haircuts, shaping their eyebrows, and wearing flattering makeup.

Now there may be those of you who see nothing wrong with a little nip and tuck here and some silicone there, along with some lipo... if it makes a woman feel good about herself. But, if it's just a matter of a woman feeling good about herself, then why aren't there any female cosmetic surgeons. In every listing I've seen, either in Town and Country magazine or in New York Magazine's Best Doctors of New York roundup, I have yet to see the name of a female plastic surgeon. Also, going under the knife to me, is still a pretty drastic way of feeling better about oneself.

Personally, I don't think I'm unnatractive. But still, for the forseeable future, I don't see myself getting any cosmetic surgery unless I get drastically disfigured, due to an accident or an illness.

"Preppy Killer" Arrested on Drug Charges

"Preppy Killer" Robert Chambers has been arrested on a drug charge a year and a half after his release from prison for the murder of then 18 year old Jennifer Levin in 1986 Chambers was in jail for fifteen years for strangling Levin during a tryst in Central Park. Chambers claimed he accidentally killed her during rough sex. Prosecutors said it was because he was drunk, on drugs, and in a rage because he couldn't perform sexually.

This article reminded me of Alex Kelly, the well to do rapist of Darien, CT. Fortunately, his victims *were* able to tell their side of the story.

Both Chambers and Kelly had looks and affluence going for them. In Kelly's case, he managed to flee to Europe for eight years, on account of his family's money.

Who knows what was going through Jennifer Levin's head, or what she expected from the evening as she left the "Dorians" bar in Manhattan's Upper East Side to go off with Chambers. (I read many years ago that the owners of "Dorians" wanted to chip in for Chambers' defense.) Kelly's victim didn't want the embarrassment of being picked up by her father from a party, so she accepted a ride from him.

But now as I type this post, I'm thinking that some of you will say, "but Zelda, the situations aren't the same." Granted, Levin probably wasn't adverse to the idea of having a fling with a pretty boy. However, the acts of violence of both these men show the same type of hatred and depravity.

I just wonder what prison people were thinking by releasing Chambers.

Sarah Jessica Parker Soap Ad Too Risque

An Israeli billboard featuring Sarah Jessica Parker dressed in a skimpy spaghetti strap dress, a la "Carrie Bradshaw" promoting Lux soap, was apparently too risque for a senior Orthodox Rabbi. Within twenty four hours, the rabbi threatened to have Israel's Orthodox Jewish community boycott all Unilever products. So naturally, the Unilever people complied, and replaced it with a poster of Parker in a long sleeved gown covering her shoulders.

"We decided to make her dress more suitable for the winter weather," a Unilever spokesman explained.

Yeah right!

These days, it seems that evening dresses are almost identical to negligees. I mean, G-d forbid you're not a flat chested woman!!! And as nice as some negligees may be, I believe they are for bed, not for dressy evening affairs. When I see pictures of models and actresses in these types of dresses, it just looks to me like they only did their hair and makeup and didn't bother getting dressed.

And don't get me started on wedding dresses. Not that I'm engaged or even involved with anyone, but most of the ones I see (with the exception being those of European royalty in Vanidades magazine) are like negligees with poufy bottoms.

When I mentioned this to my Mother, she said that I tend to look like a nun/Orthodox Jewish lady...and that I should at least expose my lower arms because it's "the style."


It's Wictory Wednesday!

Every Wednesday, hundreds of bloggers ask their readers to donate to an important Republican campaign. This week, it's for the Louisiana Republican party online.

For the first time ever, Louisiana elected a Republican senator. Currently there are two congressional seats open. As it is, Republicans hold four of the seven house seats. With your help, that can become six out of seven seats. So let's help out by donating online. To do so, click here.

Michelle Malkin - The Asian Ann Coulter?

It seems that Michelle Malkin is too "stridently anti-liberal" for the readers of the Virginian Pilot newspaper of Norfolk, VA.

The newspaper's public editor Marvin Lake's explanation was:

readers often took issue with her seemingly mean-spirited rantings and suggested that she be dropped. Well, she’s outta here, silenced for being 'too stridently anti-liberal,' the assessment of the editorial board."

Editorial writer Don Luzzatto told Lake: “I was really put off by her penchant for name-calling and ad hominem attack. I think we can do much better.”

Another editorial writer, Bronwyn Lance Chester, said: “I think she habitually mistakes shrill for thought-provoking and substitutes screaming for discussion. She’s an Asian Ann Coulter. I also think that, like Coulter, she says outrageous things just to get TV appearances and book deals. She’s the worst of what’s wrong with punditry today. She adds absolutely nothing to genuine political discourse.”

However, in all fairness, the paper did drop Molly Ivins' column not long ago for being too "stridently anti-Bush."

Now in terms of shrillness, Molly Ivins is the winner. Never have I read anything by Michelle Malkin telling a certain group of people to "get over it." And frankly I don't know where these newspaper people are coming from.

A few months ago, I watched a televised speech on C-Span that Ms. Malkin gave at Berkeley College to promote her book "In Defense of Internment: The Case for ‘Racial Profiling’ in World War II and the War on Terror." The woman was, quite frankly awesome. Even though you could hear the protesters chanting outside, she was calm and cool as a cucumber. She matter of factly made her case without resorting to any ad-hominem attacks. In fact she very politely answered the question of one protester who managed to break in to the auditorium.

Her case for racial profiling, for me, is nothing but common sense. After all, being that we have limited resources, we *should* be profiling Middle Eastern men, as opposed to feeling up women.

Yet the fact that some people believe that not hurting certain people's feelings should trump the common sense needed to save innocent lives never ceases to amaze me.


Bloggers Are a Force to Be Reckoned With

I'm sure by now that word has gotten out all over the blogosphere that Dan Rather will be stepping down from CBS Evening News in March of 2005.

I'm sooo not surprised. Thanks in large part to the bloggers, conservative news sites, and talk radio, the MSM are being shown for the partisan frauds that they are. They no longer have us as a captive audience.

Good riddance!

Hatred Not Always Wrong

Earlier today, I came across an interesting commentary on Worldnetdaily.com on why hatred is sometimes necessary, appropriate and moral. Since the piece is written by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, the logic is obviously based on Judaism and a bit of Christianity.

However, the commentary also reminded me of one of Ayn Rand's main principles in her book "The Virtue of Selfishness." That is "one must never fail to pronounce moral judgement." Rand goes on to further demolish the claim that being "good" consists of never judging others, and being completely tolerant. Her logic was that by doing so, you would reward evil. She offers the following example:

To abstain from condemning a torturer is to become an accessory to the torture and murder of his victims.

That, I think somes up the argument from the religious AND atheist perspective.

Dr. Josef Mengele's Diaries and Papers

Police in Sao Paolo, Brazil recently discovered papers and diary entries of the late Dr. Josef Mengele, otherwise known as the Angel of Death, for his ghastly experiments on prisoners in the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland during World War II.

The diary material and letters, found last month on the tenth floor of the federal police building in São Paulo, were seized in 1985 from the home of a German couple who hid Mengele in Brooklin, São Paulo and from a house outside the city where the Nazi once lived.

The papers, which will be exhibited at the National Police Academy in Sao Paolo show the doctor (who died in 1979) to be unrepentant to the very end.

Personally, I think it's really too bad that this man died, most likely in his home, of old age related complications, whereas his victims were shot, gassed and cremated. It's the same with Arafat. Lots of people are happy that he's dead. But I think he got off quite easily, dying in a private room in a Paris hospital surrounded by his entourage. His victims never had that luxury.


Donald Trump's Casino Empire Files For Bankruptcy

Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, Inc filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from its creditors on Sunday at a bankruptcy court in Camden, NJ.

Somehow I'm not surprised. Granted I heard he was having financial troubles months ago, but that's still not why I'm shocked.

It seems to me that if this lecherous old fart of a publicity whore paid more attention to running his business, as opposed to say, bedding and disposing of one bimbo after another, then he wouldn't be in this predicament. And frankly, his penchant for silicone-enhanced bimboes and his reality show "The Apprentice" is lately the only context in which I hear of him.

And speaking of reality shows, I'm sure many people enjoy them, but I have no interest in them whatsoever. I guess it's for the same reason that I don't like getting a closer look at car accidents. In general, I hate the idea of shows that pit women against each other just for the attention of a man who has the advantage of being able dally with each woman before choosing one. I hate the idea of watching people humiliate each other and themselves. And finally, I hate the idea of watching a tv show where someone always gets fired at the end, for entertainment. (It's happened to me and there's nothing entertaining about it whatsoever. In fact for many people it's almost as traumatic as losing a loved one.)

But for more on Trump, click here.


"Guantanamo" on the Hudson

A lawyer representing protesters arrested at the Republican National Convention filed a lawsuit on Monday saying that the city created its "own little Guantanamo on the Hudson."

"All that was missing were the orange jumpsuits," lawyer Jonathan C. Moore said. "Under the guise of terrorism and the fear of terrorism, we are all losing our rights.

All I have to say to that is boo hoo freaking hoo!

With the country in the middle of a war on terror, and with the President and Vice President coming to town, the important issue of terrorism is just a "guise?"

Among bystanders arrested were a 15-year-old diabetic girl on her way to a movie and a former vice president of Morgan Stanley (ESTX) who was riding her bicycle.

Barbara Friedman, who had encouraged her 16-year-old daughter's participation in a peaceful protest, said she could not locate her for two days. "I just see all our civil liberties slipping away," Friedman said. "It's very, very frightening."

Oy! These kooky Jewish limousine liberals, whom I, as a Jew just don't understand. These are the people who would vote for Democrat even if Yasser Arafat and Al Sharpton were running as president and vice president respectively! Pretty darn sick!

The Right to a Toilet

Believe it or not, there is a World Toilet Organization who is hosting their fourth summit in Beijing.

A toilet is a basic human right and this basic human right has been neglected ... the world deserves better toilets.


Speaking of Encouraging Promiscuity

Planned Parenthood has hired a woman with an x-rated background to oversee their youth outreach programs in Indiana.

But then again, what would you expect from an organization whose founder was an anti-religious eugenicist.

New Vaccine for HPV

The British medical journal The Lancet reports that Glaxo Smith Kline has come out with Cervatrix, a vaccine against the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease responsible for approximately 97% of all cervical cancers.

According to the article, HPV is the most common STD worldwide with 75% of sexually active women having had the virus at some point in their lives.

With that in mind, both GSK and Merck are considering aiming their vaccines at girls as young as 10 to ensure they are vaccinated before the onset of sexual activity. Scientists are still researching whether or not booster shots will be needed after the initial inoculation in order to guarantee lifetime protection against HPV.

Now can someone please explain to me what this world is coming to when people are considering vaccinating ten year old girls against HPV? It seems like society (at least in the U.S. from my experience) is hell-bent on promoting promiscuity. Granted, I'm all for vaccinations or any other medical treatments that improve people's health and quality of life. But what about telling our girls that having sex to be popular is not the answer? What about telling our girls that virginity is not an albatross around their necks that they have to get rid of ASAP? What about encouraging the long lost and derided virtue of, gasp, MODESTY?

These issue are covered in a book I read a few years ago called "A Return to Modesty: Discovering the Lost Virtue by Wendy Shalit. I recommend this book for men, women, liberals and conservatives alike.


Let's Give Kevin Sites a Piece of Our Mind!

It turns out that Falluja videographer Kevin Sites doesn't even work for NBC. He's a freelancer, and incidentally, an anti-war activist:

Kevin Sites, the NBC "journalist" who shot the video of the United States Marine capping that terrorist..... guess what, turns out he doesn't work for NBC - he is a freelancer, and he doesn't appear to be a journalist either, not in the traditional sense anyway. More in the vein of propagandist Amy Goodman and her Democracy Now! - an Internet & cable public access anti-US venom factory.

Sites, it turns out, is an anti-war activist who posts his work here: http://www.imagesagainstwar.com/index.php?display=522 and maintains a blog here: http://www.kevinsites.net/

Here is NBC defending Sites, on al Jazeera no less! http://english.aljazeera.net/NR/exeres/4F50C464-605B-48FE-B8C9-D19213A61B04.htm

I think this proves once and for all, that the MSM is not the least bit objective -- they hate this country and want the terrorists to win. Let's all let them know that we're on to them.


Linda Rondstadt Calls Bush Supporters a "New Bunch of Hitlers"

This is one very sore loser...

More on the MSM's View of Falluja

Anyone who writes this does not want to see our troops succeed:

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The recapture of Fallujah has not broken the insurgents' will to fight and may not pay the big dividend U.S. planners had hoped — to improve security enough to hold national elections in Sunni Muslim areas of central Iraq (news - web sites), according to U.S. and Iraqi assessments.


Supporting the Falluja Marine

Hey folks,

If you haven't already done so, I strongly recommend calling the Senate switchboard in Washington DC, who will connect you to the offices of your local senators, to voice your support of the Marine who shot the insurgent playing dead in Falluja.

The number is 202-224-3121.

Let's make our voices heard!


Walid Shoebat

Last night, I went to a speech at Aish New York given by Walid Shoebat, a former Palestinian terrorist turned Christian Zionist and staunch pro-Israel advocate. Let me just say that the man is awesome.

But what bothers me as a Jewish woman is the fact that there are almost no Jews who are equally pro-Israel and pro-Jewish. It seems to me that Jews get involved in lots of causes. But when it comes to matter of their group's own survival, they become moral-relativistic lemmings.

All of this reminds me of my awesome niece's Bat Mitzvah service this past summer. The Rabbi, who I'm sure meant well, made a long speech about Israel being the only democracy in the Middle East...blah, blah blah. He gave the example of how Israel gave sanctuary to a group of gay Arab men living in the Palestinian Authority, which is all well and good since Israel is a Western democracy. Then the Rabbi kept repeating "Israel must be above reproach."

What this well-meaning moonbat (my sister said he could be occasionally "putzey.") can't comprehend is that Israel will be reproached no matter what. To me, it's one example of Ayn Rand's expression "the hatred of the good for being good."

So anyway, I thought of this moonbat rabbi, and realized that the problem is with our Jewish leaders. All they seem capable of is whining about inter-marriage and assimilation. They can't conceive that the problem lies with them. The can't conceive that they come across as nothing more than a cross between a game show host and a politician, when they should speak and act with the moral clarity of Mr. Shoebat.

Another thing that bothered me after the speech was that fact that the two most bluntly pro-Israel/Jewish blogs -- the amazing Little Green Footballs and The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler, are not written by Jews. Why can't Jews be as proud as the men behind these blogs?

Justice Scalia Tells Audience to "Get Over" 2000 Election

In a speech given yesterday at the University of Michigan, Justice Antonin Scalia told an audience member to "get over" the 2000 election:

I'm inclined to say it's been four years and an election. Get over it…

The issue is not whether the decision should have been decided in the Florida or U.S. supreme courts, but that the Constitution had been violated. ... The only decision was to put an end to it after three weeks and looking like fools to the rest of the world. It was too much of a mess.

Wow! If only we had more of such principled conservatives as judges and politicians...

Now Fish Are "Individuals" Too

Oy! What will PETA think up next?
Fish are so misunderstood because they're so far removed from our daily lives...They're such interesting, fascinating individuals, yet they're so incredibly abused.


Another Reason to Boycott France

Who would have ever thought that the French could go so low? Now certain parts of the country run by communist/leftist mayors are considering naming streets after Yassir Arafat.

Now this reminds me of the event I was at the other night when Karol asked author Mark Molesky who wrote "Our Oldest Enemy: A History of America's Disastrous Relationship With France" about what the response of individual Americans should be to French treachery. Mr. Molesky said a boycott of French goods would not be necessary, as it would hurt the French people.

Now I will have to respectfully disagree. After all, Jacques Chirac was democratically elected. And maybe, once the French feel the pinch in the pocketbook, they'll think twice about who they elect.

Click here for a list of French companies/products.

Blogging Can Backfire on You...

That is, in the case of a Delta Airlines flight attendant who posted racy photos of herself wearing the Delta uniform.


Call Me at Heartless Bitch But...

I really don't understand hoopla over this shooting of a wounded insurgent inside a Falluja mosque. After all, these are people who kill our soldiers and who kidnap and behead innocent people. I mean, it's not like they ran a stop sign or something.

The MSM is naturally, causing trouble once more with one of NBC's reporters shooting footage of the shooting, pardon the pun.

And if that wasn't bad enough, the U.N. who never once condemned homicide bombings, is chiming in saying that the U.S. engaged in a "disproportionate use of force."

They pontificate as follows:

Those responsible for any violations -- U.S. and multinational forces, Iraqi government troops or insurgents -- should be brought to justice, the former U.N. war crimes prosecutor said in a statement.

The ICRC is very worried about the humanitarian situation in Falluja, because we are receiving information from families that are still there that the injured have no access to medical care," Rana Sidani told Reuters.

The ICRC did not know how many people were left in the shattered city of 300,000, but the Iraqi Red Crescent put the figure at around 150 families, she added.

On another note, a sixteen year old boy has been sentenced to six years in a juvenile detention facility in Spain for helping to steal and transport the dynamite used in the Madrid train bombings of March 11, 2004

Now am I the only one that thinks this sentence is way too lenient? If anything the boy, and his family should be stripped of their Spanish citizenship and deported to the Middle Eastern country of their choice. The reason I include his family is that if parents can't teach their kids that it's wrong to kill, or help kill innocents, then I'd have to say, they've screwed up ROYALLY as parents.

More Liberal Rants

Just when you thought political discourse couldn't get any worse...

RU-486 Not So Safe After All

Apparently the morning after abortion pill will have new labeling so that people are aware of all the dangerous side effects:
Danco Laboratories, have received reports of serious bacterial infection, bleeding, ectopic pregnancies, and even death in several cases - and the new warning label will mention those complications.

The label also will inform health care providers that serious bacterial infection and sepsis may occur without the usual signs of infection, such as fever and tenderness. The FDA also said health care providers should be aware that prolonged, heavy bleeding may warrant surgery.

The label also warns health care providers to watch for patients with undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies (tubal pregancies), a condition that may be overlooked by physical examination and ultrasound.

Women taking the drug should immediately report fever, abdominal pain, and heavy bleeding, the new label will say.

Concerned Women for America, a conservative public policy group, notes that several women have died after taking RU-486, and the FDA's response is simply to change the drug's label.

Planned Parenthood, naturally, insists the drug is safe.

Somehow, I'm not surprised.

Environmentalists Promise to Protest ANWR Drilling

According the CNS News, a coalition of earth-worshipping, misanthropic environmental groups is geared to oppose drilling for oil in the ANWR on the grounds that it's harmful to our beloved environment.

Now you may say to yourselves, that Zelda is crazy to call these people misanthropes...that a pure environment keeps us all healthy in the long run, etc. But as I see it, we're in a war against terror, and the rogue terror states are in possession of vast amounts of...oil! Every dollar that we give these rogue states for oil allows them to fund terror training madrassas, and to build nukes. Yet the main worry of the environments is the wildlife.

Still other misguided people believe the answer is to consume less energy. To me that's kind of like telling a sick person to seek less treatment. They don't take into account that human beings are creative and resourceful....that we initially went from burning wood to using whale oil, and when that got scarce, coal, and finally petroleum.

Rabbi Daniel Lapin sums it up perfectly.

New Male Contraceptive in the Works

Research is being done by the University of North Carolina into a new form of male contraception whereby an injection prompts an immune reaction to a protein produced by the male reproductive system. This has apparently worked on male monkeys, but could take several years before it can be perfected for human use.

Now as I see it, the woman is the one capable of getting pregnant, so the responsibility should be hers. It's like owning a home. No one in their right minds would let just anybody into their homes. Another factor to keep in mind (no offense to my male viewers) is that men will say anything to get a woman into bed with them. In this case they can say, "sure I took my shot today." Then, if the woman ends up getting pregnant, they might say "Oops I was mistaken."

Fellow NYC Bloggers

It's so nice to be able to finally meet bloggers, whose sites I read, in person, and to associate a real live person to a site. Last night, at a bar, I met Jessica of New Vintage, Lisa of NYC Smurfette and and the talent behind Ace of Spaces for the first time. It was also nice to see Karol from Alarmingnews.com again. All in all a very bright and talented group of people.

And speaking of talent, I found this post election satire, via Ace of Spades hillarious.

Terrorist Sibling Coming Out With a New Fragrance

Yeslam Bin Ladin, older half-brother of the infamous Osama Bin Laden is coming out with a new perfume -- a jasmine heavy scent dubbed "Yeslam." In an an interview with Time magazine Yeslam said:

I'm not only a bin Laden. I am Yeslam bin Ladin. I have my own identity. It is my perfume, my creation. I was about to do it several years ago, but then I had to stop because of the events of Sept. 11. I expect people out of curiosity will try it, and they will find the smell out of this world.

Check Out This Sick Personals Ad

Some depressed Democrat took out an ad on Craigslist.com looking to have a physical fight with a Republican.

Oy, these people throw such tantrums when their man is not elected!

Michael Schiavo May Stop Trying to Kill His Wife

The consumate scumbag and adulterer Michael Schiavo may finally stop trying to have his brain disable wife starved to death by removing her feeding tube. This is according to his pro-euthanasia lawyer George Felos

More Sickos Come Out of the Wood Work

Apparently, the fact that George W. Bush was re-elected was too much for some people in Norway.

It also pissed off a Netscape employee who slugged a photo of President and Mrs. Bush as "asshole.jpg."

Bring on the Prozac - Part II

To liberals, the re-election of George W. Bush is more depressing than 9/11.

Indeed several therapists are reporting that their patients are experiencing "post election blues."

And if that wasn't bad enough, Paul Krugman of The New York Times is having quite the psychotic episode (not the he was ever a paradigm or normality) with his latest rant:

But Democrats are not going to get the support of people whose votes are motivated, above all, by their opposition to abortion and gay rights (and, in the background, opposition to minority rights). All they will do if they try to cater to intolerance is alienate their own base.

Intolerance? Opposition to minority rights? With Colin Powell as Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice as National Security Adviser and Rod Paige as Secretary of Education? Come on!

Furthermore, with approximately 337,000 jobs added to the payrolls this past month, Krugman and his ilk don't have a leg to stand on in terms of domestic policy.

So if anyone needs to be medicated, it's Paul Krugman. Surely the man could benefit from some anti-delusional, anti-psychotic or anti-anxiety medications that are currently available.

Yassir Arafat's Health Declining

Could he have AIDS? I wouldn't be suprised since there have been rumors about his versatile sexual orientation.

Americans Wanting to Move to Canada Must Wait

Those Americans who simply cannot abide another four more years of George W. Bush will have a wait on their hands if they want to move to Canada.

Foreigners' Reaction to Bush's Re-election

Via Reuters, here's a look at what the Middle-Eastern media has to say:
Khaled Maeena, editor of Saudi newspaper Arab News, said: "Four more years means (Bush) will be relentless in fighting so-called terrorism. More innocent people will be victims ... All the Saudis I've seen so far are disappointed."

Translation: Waaaa, we can no longer get away with paying money to suicide bombers to kill innocent people, and to Madrassas that teach Muslims to hate and kill infidels. That sucks.

Sami Abu Zuhri of the Palestinian group Hamas which is fighting Israel, said: "We urge the new American administration to reconsider its positions ... Until they (do so) we will continue to regard the U.S. administration as hostile to our Arab and Muslim causes."

Translation: Too bad that stupid leader of the Great Satan, who LOVES the Little Satan, Israel got re-elected.

Bring on the Prozac!

It looks like the drug companies, psychiatrists, psychopharmocologists, psychoanalysts, media outlets and advertising agencies can potentially make a nice profit off the re-election of George W. Bush.

After all, Kerry supporters last night wept openly and consoled one another in Boston's Copley Square at the prospect of a Bush win.

Since the majority of the liberal elites, unfortunately, are unlikely to make good on their threat to leave this country, these people could be a huge target market for antidepressant, anti-psychotic and anti-anxiety medications.

Think of the profits to be made by all these groups. Drug companies could run full page ads, spreads, gatefolds, French door and back cover magazine ads. On television, they could run multiple spots on CBS (and perhaps offer Dan Rather a discount). The major web properties could sell millions of ad impressions in leaderboard ads, targeted sponsorships, Eyeblasters, Shoshkeles and advertorials. A sample online ad could read as follows:

Has the thought of four more years under George W. Bush left you feeling:

A loss of appetite
Unable to sleep
Unable to enjoy normal activities
Constantly sad

If so, help is on the way. Click here!

The possibilities are endless.


Another Liberal Elite Threatens to Leave U.S.

Pornographer Larry Flynt has threatened to leave the U.S. if Bush is re-elected. Hopefully, he's packing his bags right now along with the others.

Electoral Votes So Far

Via Worldnetdaily
Bush 171
Kerry 112

Another Murder in the Name of the Left's Favorite Religion

Dutch filmmaker, and great grandson of Vincent Van Gogh's brother, Theo Van Gogh was murdered in Amsterdam today. He had received death threats following the release of the movie "Submission" which came out in August, which criticized Islam's treatment of women.

Fliling Your Very Own Lawsuit

As if the 2000 election wasn't bad enough, Slate magazine has a form for those who feel disenfranchised to initiate their very own lawsuits. After all, why should the lawyers have all the fun?

The Election and the Hysteria of the Liberal Elites

With what looks to be a very close election, the liberal elites are getting hysterical over the possibility of a Kerry loss. Several of them say they would move to London, and others say Canada.

I say good riddance, as does, in essence, author Tom Wolfe:

I would vote for Bush if for no other reason than to be at the airport waving off all the people who say they are going to London if he wins again. Someone has got to stay behind.

On another note, there was a clash between bovine mocku-mentary maker, America and Israel hater Michael Moore and the MoveOn.org volunteers and Bush supporters in Hyde Park, Tampa, as Moore was claiming he would have hundreds of photographers and videographers at the scene of the election to make sure no stealing takes place this time.

For a hysterical letter to Michael Moore, check out The Middle Ground
Now if Bush should win the Electoral vote, Moore and his ilk will probably rant hysterically about how the Electoral College is unfair...that we must do away with it.

But on a more optimistic note, Republican and Democrat challengers have been allowed, by court ruling to be present at election polls in Ohio. Democrats are happy with the ruling saying they'll be happy to make sure no one is intimidated or disenfranchised. Boo hooo freaking hooo!
