Daily Trek Friday 102204

How can the blogger system just eat posts the way it does? I had a really good trek on foreign entanglements (George Washington) here but it disappeared - well I will try to reconstruct today's Trek:

I am getting really sick of the hate America Lie-N-Hype Moore-on's. They don't understand that they are really hurting America abroad in a way that will last generations! These people really hate America and wish to remake it into their utopian dream. They have used propaganda in an attempt to beat down the US in the world's opinion since Vietnam!

That is what I don't get about this election - remember Kerry said dying for UN good, dying for the US BAD! I would like to believe the national conscience will kick in on election day repudiating everything this man stands for, I can only pray this happens!

Did you hear the crazy left screaming that we didn't have a plan to get out of Korea in 1952? NO, because you don't do that in a war! As a matter of fact we are still in Korea as a strategic location (as we are in Japan and Germany) and with any luck we will still be in Iraq in 2054 with the Iraqi's blessing! It is just a strategic move that will hopefully foster a successful middle east democracy!

Whose Fault Is It That So Many In The World Hate Bush?

I have been of the opinion for a while now that the fact that there are many in the world who do indeed hate George Bush, is due more to the portrayal of him by political opponents here in the States than with any policies or actions of the President abroad. John Derbyshire at The Corner posts an excerpt from a letter from a reader who is of the same opinion.

A reader who is teaching in China: “One of the things I find particularly distressing is how the careless and hateful rhetoric of Democrats and the media have been swallowed hook, line, and sinker by the Chinese, who receive it via (God help us!) the BBC. Bush evil. Bush stupid. That’s what my students believe; the dismissive tone of their voices, when they mention President Bush’s name, speaks more than any words can. Democrats and the media are so insular, that they do not begin to conceive of the impact of their propaganda and how that shapes the way the rest of the world views us. What has poisoned the perception of the U.S. abroad is not the actions of GWB, but that of the Democrats and the media who noised abroad their disdain and lack of support for Dubya, all for political gain. Had the Democrats and media done what was right, the U.S. would be in different odor around the globe.”

Now Clinton wants to be the head of the UN - God help us, we would have absolutely NO sovereignty with a Kerry/Clinton anti-American team!

Speaking of sovereignty and interference it seems the Guardian UK's attempts to influence Clark County Ohio voters (to eject Bush) is backfiring! Did they forget the Revolutionary War, you know the one that Carter declared unnecessary just this week!
The Republicans' delight compares with the gloom among local Democrats, who fear that "foreign interference" is hurting Mr Kerry.
Remember those international election observers sent here at the request of Democrats well they already see a problem:
The delegation condemned the disenfranchisement of an estimated 4.7 million ex-felons which it said fell short of international standards.
These same international standards lead to 9/11 and genocide in Rwanda and Sudan!!!!!

Now let me make a point here. Can you name 3 things the world, AKA the UN, has done for the US in the past 60 or 100 years? Oh sure, they have criticized and attacked us repeatedly, but while we were giving aid to IRAN this year when the earthquake killed thousands we asked for nothing in return! Has the world done anything for the US without needing something in return? Did they offer aid when Florida was hit with record numbers of Hurricanes? Not that I heard. Oh yea, France did send peace keeping troops.........to HATI! All the worlds ills are our fault. Now we have wonderful allies in the War on Terror, but they aren't the UN with their "international standards" or most of Old Europe. We have spent American blood and fortune defending the world from tyrants and we are repaid with repeated attacks on every action we take.

Speaking of helping those in need Little Red Blog has this great analysis:
The U.N.'s World Food Program wants more food for North Korea. They've requested South Korea provide more aid to the North. As they note, North Korea has largely been dependent on South Korea, Japan and the United States for food since the mid-90's.

Meanwhile, the North Koreans have claimed that they will boost their "war deterrent force" as the multi-lateral talks regarding their nuclear weapons program look "gloomy" after stalling when the North Koreans didn't attend the scheduled talks in September. Their reasoning, the "hostile policy" of the United States. As reported by the AP, KCNA, their official news agency, had this to say:

Oh great, they call us for help. What would happen if we just said, "screw you and your goofy looking troll doll leader!" Of course we wouldn't do that - but that is exactly what France did to us the past oh, I don't know, hundred years or so!!!

Just like the belief that everyone has to be allowed to vote, even if you don't follow the rules some people seem to believe that there is a right to not be offended! Tongue tied has this proving that Darren was wrong and Samantha was right - despite Endora's meddling!

KOMO-TV in Washington State reports that a school district in Puyallup has banned Halloween celebrations in part because witch costumes might offend local Wiccans.Puyallup school spokeswoman Karen Hansen said, "Witches with pointy noses and things like that are not respective symbols of the Wiccan religion and so we want to be respectful of that.”Number eight on the district's guidelines related to holidays and celebrations reads as follows: "Use of derogatory stereotypes is prohibited, such as the traditional image of a witch, which is offensive to members of the Wiccan religion."The district also says the half-hour party and parade at the end of the school day waste valuable class time and might make kids who can’t afford costumes upset.

This one is my favorite because I have been known to do both:
Student entrepreneurs at Harvard University were forced to stop selling tee shirts reading “Yale Sucks, Jeter Swallows” because gay groups on campus said it was demeaning to them, reports the Crimson.The shirt, which was designed for the annual Yale-Harvard game, plays on the Boston Red Sox slogan “Yankees Suck, Jeter Swallows” being bandied about for the American League championship series.Gay activists on campus complained that the negative reference to oral sex was offensive to gays and women. M. Barusch '06, a member of the Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender and Supporters Alliance (BGLTSA), called the shirts homophobic.“This is one more example of how offensive and discriminatory language makes its way into everyday discourse,” said another student, Joseph R. Geschlecht.
