Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand
"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."
"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"
"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.
"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Wile E. Coyote: New York Times reporter
Doo-dee-doo-dee-doo... now where did I put that protractor? Ahh, here it is! Let me see... if the hypotenuse the parabola of a pregnant teenager... is inversely proportional to the approval ratings of the religious Right... then if I set the azimuth of the baby scandal catapult to 72.415 degrees, she'll be crushed as flat as her barren Alaskan tundra. Muwahahaha!
...Egads! I must say, sometimes I astonish even myself with my own genius!
And now, to bait the hook. Simply load in this explosive charge into the cup... unghhhh... pull the lever and...
Wfwell, Backh to tphe oldl drawbling bloard.

Sources close to US intelligence said, “Hackers knocked out Al Qaeda’s online means of communication, thus preventing them from posting anything to commemorate the anniversary.”Western intelligence suspects two hackers who have targeted Islamicist sites before were responsible: Aaron Weisburd from Internet Haganah and Rusty Shackleford from the web group My Pet Jawa.
Thus the title of this post. The pseudonymous Rusty Shackleford of the Jawa Report (the old name is soooo 2005) denies it and denies being a hacker at all. Not that he's against whoever did the business. In fact, he's in favor and would buy that person or persons a beer or three to celebrate.
p.s. Do you want to read 10 years of old Osama bin Laden whinging on the topic of killing infidels, the caliphate, killing infidels, collecting jizya, killing infidels, overthrowing the Saudi royals, killing infidels, and numerous details of personal hygeine, all translated into English?

Vegetarian Brain Shrinkage
MELBOURNE: Scientists have discovered that going veggie could be bad for your brain-with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.
Vegans and vegetarians are the most likely to be deficient because the best sources of the vitamin are meat, particularly liver, milk and fish. Vitamin B12 deficiency can also cause anaemia and inflammation of the nervous system. Yeast extracts are one of the few vegetarian foods which provide good levels of the vitamin.
This is sure to be as popular a topic with vegetarians and meatitarians (for want of a sillier coinage) alike as the venerable tofu brain shrinkage issue. To add to the irony, note where the article was found (hint, vegan central).

"He admits he still doesn't know how to use a computer, can't send an e-mail..."
She goes on to cheerlead for the Obama campaign in the rest of the article because, like most of the media and the AP drones in particular, she is a cheerleader for Barry and operation "hopechange." [Breitbart]
But she left out something. Jonah Goldberg writes in NRO:
The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000):In a similar vein I guess it's an outrage that the blind governor of New York David Patterson doesn't know how to drive a car.
McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain's encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He's an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can't raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball.
Not only that, but as Goldberg also notes, McCain is surprisingly web-savvy. So the ad is false on its face, making Obama a flat-out liar. Again.
Hey Obama. Kick the cripple and tell lies about him.
If it doesn't make your blood boil you don't have a heart.Maybe next he will mock Trig Palin for having an extra chromosome. That'd be about the speed of this ad.

9/11: The Jihad says Hello World
Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into the opponent's heart is obtained, hardly anything is left to be achieved. Its is the point where the means and the end meet and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon the enemy; it is the decision we wish to impose upon him. [...]
Terror [...] is basically related to the strength or weakness of the human soul. It can be instilled only if the opponent's Faith is destroyed. Psychological dislocation is temporary; spiritual dislocation is permanent. Psychological dislocation can be produced by a physical act but this does not hold good of the spiritual dislocation. To instil terror into the hearts of the enemy, it is essential, in the ultimate analysis, to dislocate his Faith. An invincible Faith is immune to terror. A weak Faith offers inroads to terror.S. K. Malik, The Qu'ranic Concept of War, p 59-60.
The bolding is mine. The targets of 9/11 were symbolic of American capitalism and international commerce. The World Trade Center was no longer the world's tallest building, but it was a powerful (and easy to hit) symbol of international trade and the material prosperity produced by capitalism and commerce. The Pentagon is the center of the American military, which protects the sea-lanes of the world from pirates and supports the advance of international commerce and finance. And the last plane that crashed into a pasture in Shanksville, Pennsylvania was destined to strike the US Capitol Building, the seat of the Senate and House of Representatives, the source of laws regulating commerce for the United States, which is so abhorrent to Jihadists who believe only in the law of Sharia.
If commerce is the civic religion of the United States then this was a strike right at the American soul. But if the soul of the United States is more properly stated in the Declaration of Independence then it was a miss. And that is where the Jihadists miscalculated. America rose up and demanded vengeance against those who launched nineteen assassins against innocent American civilians. If it took war to get vengeance and to secure America against the Jihad, then so be it.
On the other hand, Hollywood, secular Democrats, the media, academia, and the east and west coast secular elites could not understand what had happened. After the initial terror shivered them to their core they blocked the memory of it out of their minds and sealed their minds apart from the fact of what was opposed to them. Then they fiercely opposed any attempt to remind them, or to carry out military action to counter the Jihad.
Never forget the WTC, Pentagon, Shanksville.
Never forget the falling man.
Never forget who celebrated.
Never forget that if you are not a Jihadist, then the Jihad is coming for you, your family, your loved ones.
By the way, anyone who argues that 9/11 was not the work of Jihadists and Muslims and was the work of Mossad/US/Bush/Cheney/CIA/Hollywood should put their heads on straight. 9/11 "Truthers" are soul-less fools and useful idiots for the Jihad.

How bad could Obama be?
Investor's Business Daily has a must-read series on Obama's stealth socialism titled The Audacity of Socialism.
Barack Obama has styled himself a centrist, but does his record support that claim?
In this series, we examine Senator Obama's past, his voting record and the people who've served as his advisers and mentors over the years. We'll show how the facts of Obama's actions and associations reveal a far more left-leaning tilt to his background and to his politics.
I mean it. At 14 parts so far, the series is a must-read.
And if you haven't heard of it yet, the soberest examination of Obama's actual record yet is Freddoso's book. Here is a pretty good interview of Freddoso.
I just want to cite for you one of the things that Alinsky says in Rules for Radicals. I’m not going to read it or quote, I’m just going to summarize it. What he says is that, he’s talking about the middle classes, and he says that they are sort of hopeless and lost. They become bitter. They cling to illusory fixed points which are nonetheless very real to them. They hold irrational religious beliefs that you shouldn’t try to disabuse them of because then they’ll react violently. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
DELLINGER: Yes, it sounds like that speech in Pennsylvania that caused so much controversy.
FREDDOSO: Yes, it was in San Francisco. He talked about the people back in Pennsylvania as bitter people who cling to guns and religion and patriotism. That’s exactly the way Alinsky talked about it, so Obama sort of takes this Alinsky’s entire philosophy condescends upon the human person. It condescends on the poor basically thinking that I know what they need better than they do. It condescends on the middle classes saying that we need to help them because they’re confused and everything but really they’re just a bunch of delusional people who think that patriotism and stuff like that is important. That’s the kind of influence you see in Obama’s life that you see from Saul Alinsky.
Condescending. Mean. Lawyer. Not trustworthy. Not Change we can believe in. Not the Change we need.

World can have Obama
Heck, he could even be the Secretary General of the UN. Even an American socialist from the corrupt Chicago political machine is better than the anti-American, terror-enabling, Jew-hating corruptocrats the UN usually elects.
