Another Democrat Supports The Troops…


The junior MA senator and failed democratic presidential nominee, John Kerry, publicly admits what every liberal democrat privately believes to be true about the US military. This is a text-book example of how well they support and love our troops.

If the truth regarding the high quality of our military recruits is what your seek – surf on over to this report

Santorum is good for…


I have the pleasure of viewing this sign every day on I-95 while commuting to and from work. Today, the traffic was snarled more so than usual, so I had the opportunity to grab my Nikon and capture a good picture of this sign without causing a muti-car collision.

During my lengthy commute this morning, I realized that the author of the sign is partially correct..Santorum is good, but his talents are not limited to the Senate. Obviously, there is not enough billboard space to list all the reasons why Santorum is good for the Senate, AND Pennsylvania. I figured I’d use my blog-space to continue the train of thought initated by the author of these billboards:

Rick Santorum is good for Senate…..AND…..

Agriculture:
Farmland Preservation ProgramRick Santorum played a pivotal role in creating the Farmland Preservation Program that was included in the 1996 Farm Bill, which provides federal funding to assist state and local farmland preservation efforts. Over 13,000 acres of Pennsylvania farmland are part of this program, which preserves and protects this precious land across the Commonwealth.

Compassion:
Rick also supports funding the Millennium Challenge Account, which provides grants, above and beyond existing aid, to poor countries that adopt sound economic policies. Countries are able to receive grants by showing their commitment to good governance, the rule of law, human rights protection, and a transparent economic system.

Fighting Poverty:
Rick has been a leader in the Senate on its Anti-Poverty Agenda. This effort establishes a vision for alleviating poverty and aims to find legislative solutions for the problem. Committed to provide housing opportunities in many of Pennsylvania’s low-and moderate-income neighborhoods, Rick has proposed the Community Development Homeownership Tax Credit.


Conservation:
Highlands Conservation Act: Rick Santorum was successful in passing the Highlands Conservation Act, which authorizes $100 million over 10 years for land conservation projects located within the Highlands region.

Abandoned Mine Lands: Rick is working to address the issue of abandoned mine reclamation. Abandoned Mine Lands (AMLs) cover more than 189,000 acres of land and 3,100 miles of streams in Pennsylvania

Education:
No Child Left Behind Act: Rick Santorum supported the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, which has been the most historic legislative initiative enhancing education opportunities to pass Congress in decades.

Education Savings AccountsRick Santorum supports expanding Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) to make it easier for parents to invest in their children’s education.

Energy:
Energy Policy Act: Rick has long been a vocal advocate of the need for a national energy policy and supported passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 Clean Coal Power Initiatives.

Arctic National Wildlife RefugeThe Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) has the potential to play a significant role in reducing our dependence on foreign oil, and Rick supports exploring this area in a safe and environmentally sound way. (YEAH!)

Health Care:
Medical Liability Reform: Rick is committed to addressing the need for medical liability reform. The American Medical Association (AMA) identifies Pennsylvania as one of 21 states where the malpractice climate has reached “crisis proportions.”

Family Ban on Partial Birth AbortionIn 2003, Rick championed legislation to ban the gruesome procedure known as partial birth abortion. The Partial-Birth Abortion (PBA) Ban Act of 2003 passed both Houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Bush on November 5, 2003.

Furthering Stem Cell Research: Rick Santorum supports stem cell research, when it does not involve the destruction of human embryos or that is based on the prior destruction of human life. Rick is a strong supporter of cord blood stem cell research, which serves as an ethical and viable means to treat patients and cure disease. In addition to umbilical cord blood, other adult stem cell research has shown tremendous promise in helping to cure people.

Unborn Victims of Violence Act: Rick has also been an ardent supporter of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. This bill, known as “Laci and Conner’s Law,” makes it a federal crime to harm an unborn child during an assault on a pregnant woman.

Immigration/Border Security:
Rick Santorum believes that border security must be addressed first and foremost. He supports building a wall along a portion of our southern border, temporarily increasing the presence of our National Guard at the border, and substantially increasing the number of border patrol agents.

No Amnesty: Giving blanket amnesty, approving guest worker programs masked as amnesty, or charging nominal fines to become an American citizen mocks and demeans the sacrifices of legal immigrants.

Jobs & Economy:
Pension ProtectionIn 2005, the Senate passed S. 1783, the Pension Security and Transparency Act of 2005, which strengthens pensions to better protect the retirement security of hard-working Americans.


Safety & Security:
Protecting Pennsylvania’s Defense AssetsPennsylvania’s military base communities play a critical role in ensuring our national security, and Rick Santorum worked to present a strong case to the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) commission regarding the military value of each of our state’s basesSupporting the

Pre-War Iraqi Documents (Project HARMONY) In an effort to continue to assess and learn about events leading up to Operation Iraqi Freedom, Senator Santorum introduced Project HARMONY (S.2408) a bill to require the Director of National Intelligence to release documents captured in Afghanistan or Iraq during Operation Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, or Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Whew..what a list! This is the edited version, you should see the full listing. As you can see, this is way, way too much info for a billboard or two.

A catchy slogan can never relate the WHOLE story, only highlight what has been omitted. I’m sure the intent of these billboards was to educate the public to the benefits that Senator Santorum’s leadership offers to the citizens of Pennsylvania :)

Al-queda wants you to Vote Democrat


Denenberg: How Terrorists Should Vote, And Why..

If you are a terrorist, you should definitely vote the straight Democratic ticket in the upcoming election. Now, I know that is not politically correct to say, but it does happen to be true virtually beyond contradiction. Just consider the overarching issue of this election and of our times – the war against Islamic/fascist/Nazi/terrorism. There is little doubt that the Democratic Party would not fight a robust, aggressive, successful war against the threat to our country and civilization. Some Democratic leaders, such as John Murtha, have made it clear that they want to cut and run right out of Iraq. They are not alone.

Other Democrats have not been quite as precise in making their recommendations, but they virtually all come down to some variation of cut and run, retreat, surrender, accept defeat, a timetable for withdrawal, or however you want to characterize it. No matter what synonyms are used, the Democratic prescription is one for catastrophe, not only for Iraq, but also for the rest of the world. If terrorists can find a happy hunting ground in Iraq, with its oil, water and other resources, they will destabilize the whole region and pose a threat to the whole world.

We can no longer hide behind our oceans, and be endangered by every fanatic and terrorist with or without a nuclear weapon or other WMDs. Like it or not, 9/11 happened and may happen again and may happen even many times.

The Democrats do not have the stomach for a fight, and their rhetoric encourages our enemies and strengthens their theories, their tactics and their strategies.

Canon XT Review

Longwood

Over the past two weekends, I’ve made some room in my weekend schedule to visit both Longwood and Winterthur with the objective of trying out my new dSLR – the Canon XT. In addition, I brought along my Canon EOS Rebel SLR and Nikon Coolpix P2 for comparison.

Just a few observations from the field:

The camera is smaller than my Canon EOS. There has been critism over the small size of the XT, yet as I hold the camera, my index finger falls naturally over the shutter button. No problems here.

It is surprsingly heavy for its size, especially when I attach the telephoto lens. This is no vending machine camera, it is a sturdy little camera.

It is quickly becoming apparent that I need to use a tripod when shooting with the telephoto lens. This was never an issue when used with the film SLR and I’m thinking about purchasing a IS telephoto lens for the dSLR.

The battery life so far is excellent. I’ve only recharged it once since receiving the camera. As the winter approaches, we will see how the battery handles the colder temperatures.

And now for the pictures – just a few examples…

A Bias at BBC?

A Bias at the BBC?

An internal British Broadcasting Corporation memo reveals senior figures admitted the national news agency was guilty of promoting left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment.
News of the memo, reported by British media, comes as the BBC continues to struggle against claims of biased reporting on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and distorted coverage of the global fight against terror, reports the Israeli YnetNews.com.

The admissions of bias were made at a recent “impartiality” summit the BBC held. Most executives admitted the corporation’s representation of homosexuals and ethnic minorities was unbalanced and disproportionate, YnetNews.com said. The British news agency, the report said, leaned too strongly towards political correctness, the overt promotion of multiculturalism, anti-Americanism and discrimination against the countryside.

At the summit, executives were given a fictitious scenario in which they were asked to make a judgment.
In the illustration, Jewish comedian Sasha Baron Cohen would participate in a studio program in which guests were allowed to symbolically throw in a garbage bin things they hated. What would you do, the executives were asked, if Cohen decided to throw kosher food, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bible and the Quran in the trash. Everything would be allowed, the executives said, except for the Quran, for fear of offending the British Muslim community.

The BBC also revealed its executives favored interviewing terrorist leader Osama bin Laden if the opportunity arose, the Washington Times reported.

The executives were presented with a current hot-button issue in Britain, the wearing of Muslim veils. Should a veiled woman be allowed to present the news, they were asked. The BBC’s diversity editor said yes, since news anchors were allowed to wear crosses. A senior BBC executive admitted to the British paper Daily Express, “There was a widespread acknowledgement that we may have gone too far in the direction of political correctness. Unfortunately, much of it is so deeply embedded in the BBC’s culture, that it is very hard to change it.”

Makes one wonder what else is being misrepresentated at the BBC, oh like, maybe the TRUTH about global warming? Or perhaps the full story of Iraq?How long now before the NY Times admits to a bias in its reporting???

BSG Episode 3.05 – Collaborators

Chief Tyrol’s sense of right and wrong is put to the test when he takes part in a secret tribunal that tries and convicts in absentia humans who collaborated with the Cylons on New Caprica — and then secretly executes them for treason. Only Tyrol has the courage to ask the questions everyone fears: What if the tribunal makes a mistake? What if they put an innocent human being to death?

Do you think islamofascists have such a crisis of conscience after murdering kidnapped U.S. soldiers?

Official Drink of Collaborators: I’m in the mood for something French…

Pousse-Cafe

1 cl grenadine
1 cl green creme de menthe
1 cl Galliano
1 cl Kummel
1 cl brandy
Pour the grenadine into a shot glass as a base. Over the back of a barspoon, gently add the creme de menthe. Pause, add the Galliano the same way. Pause, add the kummel and, finally, the brandy. Serve carefully and watch your back.
Episode Review:
Collaborators
Another serving of the re-imagined BSG series – only darker and twisted. This isn’t your daddy’s Battlestar.
This episode didn’t move the plot forward, but served as a platform to showcase where the characters are at emotionally. Not surprisingly – They are all FRAKKED UP.
I missed my 30 minute ‘previously on Battlestar Galactica’ segment – actually, not really.

Baltar is on a naked on a Basestar – and dreaming of Laura kissing him…now that is twisted. Ahem, Baltar – nakedness is a priviledge NOT a right – Keep the robe ON please!

Poor Galactica….looks like she needs a good wash and polish.
Jammer is toast – tried and convicted by a secret vigilante group calling themselves ‘The Circle’. It is obvious RDM is playing the ‘current event’ card here: the abuse of executive power , and also trials without things like habeas corpus. Well, current imagined events as seen through a liberal lens.
It is interesting to watch the fallout between those who stayed behind in the fleet and those who left for New Caprica. Tigh had every right to ball out Gaeta when he showed up in CIC to help with the repairs. It looks as though Adama is going to offer an early retirement package to Saul…soon.
Lee is still fat….I’m with Papa Adama when he advises Lee to keep jumping.
Kara…poor, poor Kara. After everything they’ve been through and Anders just walks away without a comment? Oh well, after all Sam is not Lee. PS: Kara owes Gaeta a huge apology – Right Frakking Now!
Laura as Prez and Zarek as the VP? That seemed a bit of shoddy writing putting Zarek into the government. I liked him better as the outsider challenging the authority – now he IS the authority. Kind of like a 60′s hippie transformation into an 80′s yuppie.
Loved the ending of this episode: Tyrol sitting with Gaeta – a quiet show of support for him after his ordeal with the ‘circle’.
Next week: Torn – Kara and Lee reconnect – let the fireworks fly!!

BSG imitating life, Life imitating BSG

Yet another example of how the left view type of storytelling crafted by Ron Moore and Co. for BSG.

This is a forum posting I stumbled upon at GateWorld/Battlestar Galactica. I’ll give you one guess as to the identity of the respondent nicknamed “Vienna”.

Life Imitates Art, Art Imitates Life

I was flipping through some news sites earlier and came across something….well, horrifying, in my opinion.

Quote:Cheney endorses simulated drowning
Dick Cheney, US vice-president, has endorsed the use of “water boarding” for terror suspects and confirmed that the controversial interrogation technique was used on Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the senior al-Qaeda operative now being held at Guantánamo Bay.
Mr Cheney was responding to a conservative radio interviewer who asked whether water boarding, which involves simulated drowning, was a “no-brainer” if the information it yielded would save American lives. “It’s a no-brainer for me,” Mr Cheney replied.
The comments by the vice-president, who has been one of the leading advocates of reducing limitations on what interrogation techniques can be used in the war on terror, are the first public confirmation that water boarding has been used on suspects held in US custody.

The story continues here but that’s really the only part that I felt relevant to posting on a BSG board.

I couldn’t help but feel chills as I read this, remembering “Flesh and Bone” and Kara’s torture of Leoben. Props to you, RDM, Eick, and team, for continuing to be relevant–even though it is for grim and horrifying things.

Counting the real cost…

Points to ponder….

Why is it the liberal anti-war/Bush/everthing crowd are so obsessive on counting the ‘cost’ of this priceless peace? If they consider peace as ‘priceless’ why are they the first to decry its cost?

Philly Style Voter Fraud


From the city of Rocky, Geno’s Cheesesteak and Voter Fraud comes yet another tale of voter manipulation -

Philly Style

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — City officials and Hispanic community leaders objected Thursday to the federal government’s plans to put monitors at city polling places on Election Day, saying those efforts could discourage people from voting.

The Department of Justice earlier this month asked a federal judge to authorize appointment of monitors beginning with the upcoming Nov. 7 election and ending in 2009. The government accused the city of failing to provide sufficient election materials in Spanish and not recruiting enough bilingual poll workers.
