Weekend Trek Friday 111204

Okay, not much today - but read Charles Krauthammer today on the truth about the "Moral Values" vote myth. (Remember I wrote this.)

Daily Trek Thursday 11/11/04

On this Veteran's Day I want to thank all of the men and women who have served our country throughout it's history. In addition I wish to thank the forgotten family members of those who have served. There is nothing greater one can give then the service to his country. I personally thank each one of you!

Not much to say today - been awaiting a new batch of injectible meds that should have been here last week - been out since Friday and it makes it rough without it.
But the Key issue in today's trek:

Yassar Arafat, the man who choose the path of terror over the path of peace, has passed away. (See Drudge Report for complete coverage)

The man who is known as the founder of the modern terrorist way of life was also primarily responsible for the Horrible Plight of the people now known as Palestinians.

When Jordan, Syria, and Egypt controlled the territories of Gaza and The West Bank there was no Palestinian outcry. When they attempted the destruction of the state of Israel and lost.......Then and only then did the cry come out that these people had to be kept in refugee camps that were barely habitable.

And what did Arafat do about it? He sent the sons of these innocents to their deaths. He attacked Israel in the most horrific manner and when offered nearly everything he asked for to stop the bloodshed he refused choosing rather the path of terror over the path of peace.

This is what he should be known for. The claim that he was a freedom fighter who became a statesman is beyond wishful thinking but is reflective of the lengths to which the Islamic world will delude itself, thus allowing them to justify the murder of innocent men, women, and children by terrorists.

On to our own delusional population did anyone else hear Nancy Pelosi announce that instead of trying to figure out why the Democrats went off the tracks and fix it the Democratic Leadership Council were meeting to "save civilization as we know it!" The key is that America was NEVER where Nancy and her Moore-on friends saw it! They have managed to delude themselves via the liberal cocoon they lived.

I know it is early, but the first signs are not good for the Democrats. Their delusion prevents any retrospective look at themselves - they believe it is the majority of America that is just stupid and has to change. Rather they would do well to see where they went off the deep end!

Hopefully more tomorrow, the meds should be here!

More: Captains Quarters puts Yassar in perspective this way:
For all the crimes he committed and people he terrorized, the most ironic legacy Arafat left was the utter poverty and degradation he rained onto his own people -- while he and his wife lived it up on their money. And now the people of the West Bank will send him off with a hero's funeral, compounding the irony.

BTW, here is the full quote from Pelosi World:
What we hope to accomplish this afternoon at the meeting with Senator Kerry and Senator Reid is saving civilization as we know it today, as we go into the next election.

Daily Trek Monday 110804

Okay, now P-Diddy (Formerly Puff Daddy!) has admitted he was wrong with part of his Vote or Die campaign:
P. Diddy says he got off on the wrong foot when it came to his political endeavors in 2004. If he could do things over again, he wouldn't have yelled for folks to get George W. Bush's "ass out of office."
Now I don't think I would be out of line to say that the problem wasn't with part of the campaign. Rather it started when he first entered politics with the absolutely stupid campaign slogan of "Vote or Die".

I think in 30 years, when he has once again changed his name to something like P - Eee Dee (for which he is taking Lavetra!) he will look back and realize that not only was it a stupid slogan, but that the more he hyped his Vote or Die campaign the more people voted for President Bush - this is one of those Moral/Value issues. The Dem's are trying to make this all a gay issue - but I think the it is more of the rejection of the Hollywood values and a reaffirmation of American Values (see what I said here)

Americans proved what I had said in 1992 - Clinton and the Dems are like my alcoholic Uncle Bill. You might let him watch your house but your sure as hell aren't going to give him the keys to the liquor cabinet! When you are in the middle of the greatest struggle in our generation we need to trust our President to do what is right for America. To support our troops and not stab them in the back when they return. The defeat of Kerry could be the final battle of Vietnam. America could finally heal that wound and put to rest the left's Vietnam hatred of our military. Somehow the way the Dem's have clung to the likes of the Lie-N-Hype Moore-on's I doubt it.

The Trek:

DANEgerous has this great analysis of why the left doesn't get it. The NY Times is the perfect example of a too nuanced outlook on life. I think this is important to note! There has been a drop in crime that has corresponded directly with our increased willingness to punish criminals!!! DUH, but they don't get it.The headline:

Despite Drop in Crime, an Increase in Inmates

Certainly the drop in crime rates is directly associated with keeping criminals locked up.

I'm all for clearing out non-violent lawbreakers who are locked up for victimless crimes... but how hard do you have to try to push the agenda.

Here is the real headline... the one the idiots at the NYTimes simply won't print:

Getting Tough on Crime reduces Crime
Anyone remember hearing this wonderful little story from any of the MSM during the campaign?
Historian Douglas Brinkley, author of a wartime biography of Kerry, cautioned that Kerry’s diary included mention of a meeting with some North Vietnamese terrorists in Paris. Edwards was flabbergasted. “Let me get this straight,” the senator said. “He met with terrorists? Oh, that’s good.”
Newsweek has it now that the election is over!

Tim Blair has this prespective on the election:


• Number of people who voted for Bush: 59,651,262

• Number of people who live in Britain: 59,600,000

Via Quentin George in comments. Oh, I almost forgot:

• Number of dentists in Britain: 31,600
