In celebration of the fifteenth of April, I am writing checks to the Internal Revenue Service totalling over four thousand freaking dollars above and beyond my witholding at work and quarterly estimated payments. I think the best way to achieve tax reform in this country would be to eliminate employer witholding. Make everyone that pays taxes write a single check for the amount they owe. Better yet, move tax day to coincide with election day, and watch a flat tax or national sales tax movement sweep aross the nation.Since then, I have heard of a better way to ensure tax reform.
We should put this S.O.B. up against a wall and say 'This is one of our bad days,' and pull the triggerDon't worry, though. They don't really mean to shoot him:
When asked if the ad was a challenge to inflict violence on Rumsfeld, McCall explained: "'Pull the trigger' means let Rumsfeld know where we stand, not to shoot him!"Of course! I often say "I am going to pull the trigger" just before I explain my position on the issues. It's obviously a very common euphemism, broadly used throughout the land.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
John Stuart Mill.
Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made. The president needs to step up and acknowledge that there are difficulties and that the world needs to be involved and they need to reverse their policy that countries that were not involved in supporting us are not going to be part of the reconstruction.Got that? Woodruff, being a good soldier, gave Kerry a chance to back away from that nonsense:
Senator, you said it was a mistake, not your mistake, but you called it a mistake and also said you wouldn't cut and run. You've acknowledged there may need to be more troops. If there were a President Kerry, he might have to send in more troops. I want to ask you the question you asked during the Vietnam War. How do you ask a man...to be the last to die for a mistake?Kerry remained elusive and seemingly incoherent:
Well, the mistake that I'm talking about, Judy, is not the effort to fight and have -- not the effort to have a stable Iraq. The mistake is in the way that they are going about it. So I would change the way you're going about it. I mean again and again I have said, I laid out with great specificity months ago, the steps that they should have taken, and I believe that those people who have been in touch with people in the international community know there is a different and better way to put together an effort that could legitimize a government in Iraq. If we insist on doing this through our provisional government authority, if we insist on being totally in control the way we are today, we're going to having an impossible time legitimately bringing people to the table.There it is! Buried in the middle of that stream of unconsciousness is the answer to the question. Sort of. So I would change the way you're going about it. I mean again and again I have said, I laid out with great specificity months ag. . .
A man claiming to be a senior al-Qaida figure that the United States believes is operating in Iraq has released a tape calling for the country's Sunni Muslims to fight Shiites and claiming responsibility for high-profile attacks there.
The speaker on the tape claimed responsibility for a March 17 car bombing of a Baghdad hotel that killed seven people.
The speaker also said that his group carried out the assassination of Ayatollah Mohammad Baqr al-Hakim . . . Al-Hakim was killed by a car bomb.
The speaker also threatened to kill Gen. John Abizaid, head of the Central Command; L. Paul Bremer, the top U.S. administrator in Iraq; and "their generals, soldiers and associates."
One theme of the tape echoed that of a letter U.S. authorities released earlier this year in which al-Zarqawi purportedly wrote to other al-Qaida leaders that the best way to undermine U.S. policy in Iraq was to turn the country's religious communities against each other.
He called upon Sunni Muslims in Iraq to "burn the earth under the occupiers' feet."How lovely. These are the people the Democrats would deal with using their "nuanced" policy. I say we send them to meet Allah pronto, rather than have them meet with Madeleine Albright.
(B)ombs in Spain; fiery clerics promising death in England, even as explosive devices are uncovered in France. In-between accounts of bombings in Iraq, we get the normal murdering in Israel, and daily assassination in Pakistan, Turkey, Morocco, and Chechnya. Murder, dismemberment, torture—these all seem to be the acceptable tools of Islamic fundamentalism and condoned as part of justifiable Middle East rage.Could it be any clearer why we must win in Iraq and somehow start a process for bringing Muslims into the modern world?
The Taliban strung up infidels from construction cranes and watched, like Romans of old, gory stoning and decapitations in soccer stadiums built with UN largess. In the last two years, Palestinian mobs have torn apart Israeli soldiers, lynched their own, wired children with suicide bombing vests, and machine-gunned down women and children—between sickening scenes of smearing themselves with the blood of “martyrs.”
Daniel Pearl had his head cut off on tape; an American diplomat was riddled with bullets in Jordan. Or should we turn to Lebanon and gaze at the work of Hezbollah—its posters of decapitated Israeli soldiers proudly on display? Some will interject that the Saudis are not to be forgotten—whose religious police recently allowed trapped school girls to be incinerated rather than have them leave the flaming building unescorted, engage in public amputations, and behead adulteresses.
A jury found that Deanna Laney was legally insane May 9 when she killed her two older sons, ages 6 and 8, in the front yard and left the youngest, now 2, maimed in his crib.Radio talkshow host Mark Davis had a listener question why it seems to so often be mothers murdering their children. Davis did a little research and discovered the following:
