Snow Storm NYC: December 2010.

This morning I awoke determined to make it to work. I figured that all these stories about the impending snow storm were much about nothing. OK, so last night we heard that NYC was expecting 12-16 inches of snow fall and this really didn't sound so terrible. After all, we've had many such storms in the recent past and didn't we get 2 feet of snow during last year's storm? Back then, the city continued functioning with only minor hiccups and I was always able to slowly drive to work. The streets were icy, but I had a good car with all season tires.

I got out of bed one hour early, put on snow pants, waterproof boots, and took along a shovel that I had readied the day before. The shovel would allow me to dig through a snow bank that a snow plow typically creates while clearing a pass through the street. I figured on allocating 10-15 minutes for digging and an extra 30 minutes for the slow drive. In reserve, I held another 15 minutes that could be used to dig out a pass to a snowed in parking spot just in case the cleared spaces were all taken. The doorman greeted me with a crooked smirk but I ignored this possible warning sign and thought to myself : he just doesn't realize how resourceful and determined I am.

As I got out to the street, I quickly realized that the situation might be worse than predicted by our weather forecasters. Instead of 1 foot of snow, I saw 3-4 feet. The entire street was covered with snow and there were no plows in sight. On the street corner I saw a stuck ambulance which I later learned had been there since last night. There were abandoned cars in the middle of the street and after walking 2 blocks to get to my car, I realized that a drive would be physically impossible. After about 20 minutes of waddling through 3 foot snow, I returned to the front door of my building and learned that all bus and subway service was suspended in my part of town. Walking past the smirking doorman, I humbly smiled back.

Later today I made another valiant attempt to dig out my car but after making some progress, I returned home to rest up and hydrate myself. That was when I saw Bloomberg's press conference being broadcast on local TV. What a disgrace of a mayor he has become. NYC has been through far worse storms. In the past the plows had come out early and would work relentlessly though the night. This storm is different; it has brought my part of the city to a complete shutdown. The plows were not there and the streets remain impassable.

What explanation did this mayor provide? He blamed the stuck cars in the street; he blamed the stranded city residents because they should have known better and stayed home. Yes, that's right: the reason that this storm is so much more disruptive is apparently the fault of New Yorkers. What about the abandoned city buses in the middle of the street? Were those vehicles also not supposed to be running? How about the one snow plow that I saw abandoned in the middle of an otherwise empty street? Apparently by the time plows did come out, the task of driving through a street long stretch of 4 feet snow was simply too much and trying to plow through would cause too much damage to other vehicles.

BTW mayor, is it also our fault that our streets are riddled with potholes which remain unfilled for half a year and whenever they are filled in, the asphalt seems to dissolve with the first drops of rain? This is NYC and we pay just about the highest taxes in the country. So, what exactly do these inflated taxes pay for? Maybe what we really need is another expensive campaign to remove salt from our restaurants and cigarettes from our bars.

About these supposed warnings to stay home that our mayor said we should have heeded. The last email message from my city government operated workplace was a warning that anyone who called in sick would have to provide proof that they were actually sick, or face a penalty. In this economy, one doesn't need to elaborate on what might be meant by "penalty". Ironically, the person who sent out this irresponsible message at 1pm on Sunday, never made it to work today to send further instructions. These contradictory and unhelpful messages are coming from people that you, mayor Bloomberg, put in charge. At some point however, no matter what threats these administrators issue, there is simply nothing that can be done.

In a way, he is correct that the fault lies with us. We never should have re-elected this excuse of a man. I just wish we had someone else to vote for.

The Dark Side Of Our Democratic Party. (updated)

I just finished reading an essay written by Dymphna from the Gates of Vienna. She describes Tom Perriello, a Democrat who was elected to Congress in her local Virginia district, and it is shocking to find out just how soundly asleep we all were. This masked congressman, is no moderate. In retrospect, his campaign and everything since can only be described as a massive fraud perpetrated on the voters by Soros Inc. Perriello appears on the scene as a seemingly innocuous politician riding on Obama's coattails. Dymphna described his appearance as resembling an altar boy. Back then, many of us thought wishfully: maybe it won't be so terrible, we can survive 4 years of their childish fancies, and that we can restore what was lost after the next election. During November of 2008, there were so many others like him. We were deceived and they have been busy. Please read this illuminating post. Ultimately it is about preserving our hard won freedoms or returning to serfdom.

Perriello, presenting himself as a moderate Democrat, was asked if there was anything the Congress had done or attempted to do in the last 4 years that went beyond the limits on governmental power imposed by our constitution. He could think of nothing. Not the imposition of health insurance purchasing, not "cap and trade" or other attempts to take over industry after industry, not even the subversion of voter protection through "card-check". There is no line that these progressives will not cross. Who was a moderate fascist during the last century and what was ultimately required to moderate them? That's where we are moving.

Beslan, 6 years later.

I remain speechless when I think of what was done to the children of Beslan. There should be no place among human beings for sheltering this kind of evil. Yet those....I cannot even come up with the right words to describe the terrorists and Muslim mercenaries who raped and terrorized tiny children in a crowded school gym....They had somewhere to run to; they had a whole community to welcome them.

Furthermore, this act of incomprehensible barbarity aimed at tiny children was not some isolated incident.

There should be no place amongst us, for them.

Enjoying the weather.

Reading through a post on Malkin's site today, I was directed towards a photo of Barrack Obama biking on his latest vacation. Someone in the comments section linked to a photo of GWB biking and it is worthwhile to look at both these photos together.

Notice in the photo above: the inappropriate tight fitting jeans, bell bottoms that will either get stuck on the pedals or pick up grease from the chain, and the ill-fitting helmet. I am surprised not to see training wheels on Obama's bike.

For comparison, look at Bush. Here is someone dressed for the occasion and ready to handle the roughest path.

I feel compelled to say that there has been progress in Obama's biking ventures.

Bellow is a photo of Obama as a presidential candidate, and you can clearly see that unlike in this particular photo, during the Martha's Vineyard ride, someone inflated the tires for him.

What Muslims, Politicians, and Progressives Don't Comprehend.

It is true that in America we hold the freedom of expression as our basic human and inalienable right. We view this right as our gift from God - as testimony of the pact between us and our creator when He gave us the freedom to live our lives as we see fit.

Some people like to make the statement: "I will defend your right to say that which I disagree with." They then apply this statement to the idea of building a mosque at the destroyed WTC site. We are expected to answer this call in the same way.

The problem with the above analogy is that while you may have the right to try to dance on a grave, I will not condone your dancing on top of a grave. Specifically in the case of building a mosque at ground zero, I feel a closeness to those who were murdered there rather than the murderers. In a way, we as Americans feel that it is our grave-site.

So, the simple answer is: no, I will not fight for, nor will I agree to your "right" to dance on my grave-site. What sort of person would even ask for something like that? Are you listening to the voices that make up 70% of the country, mayor Bloomberg? We may just terminate your contract early.

The other point that seems to escape our enlightened politicians, is that we do not want to dig our own graves and line up in front of them. We are at war. 9/11 was an act of war. The building of a mosque at that site is a victory for the islamists that attacked us on 9/11. They still want to kill us. Why does the enlightened political class assume that we aspire to be the sacrificial lambs in their hope for the collaborators to be slaughtered last?

Lastly, I will address the progressives and for this purpose, I will quote Chris Muir: "Do not mistake your cowardice with conviction, or syntax with sensibility." The progressive's true nature is obvious to the rest of us.

Desecration of the WTC site: 9/11 mosque or simply another attack on America.

There was a notable article by Dorothy Rabinowitz at the Wall Street Journal today. The article discusses the disconnect between our enlightened elites and mainstream Americans, and the fact that these elites lack a common sense shared by most Americans. Here is a quote from the article I wish to share with you.

"Here was an idea we have been hearing more and more of lately—the need to show the world America's devotion to democracy and justice, also cited by the administration as a reason to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in New York City. Who is it, we can only wonder, that requires these proofs?"

Do read the entire article here.

Please think about the above quote for a minute. Who does America need to convince that it is a just and moral country? The dictators in the Middle East? Russia's Putin? Perhaps we need to convince the likes of Hugo Chavez?

Or, perhaps the problem lies with the ones who make such assertions about Americans needing to sacrifice their good sense and placate the ones who celebrate our tragedy. Maybe the folks who propose such strategies are themselves ashamed of our country and our people. Do they view this country through the eyes of our enemies because that is the company they've surrounded themselves with?

One fact should be obvious to the locally elected officials. The proposal of building a mosque so close to Ground Zero is going to be extremely painful for many of this city's residents. I would venture a guess that this is a painful ordeal for not only most of NY residents, but for the overwhelming majority of our entire country. It is not only the resentment that this act will bring out in most Americans. This rubbing of salt into still raw wounds will create an angry population and severely disrupt the peace in our city. This fact alone should be sufficient grounds for moving the mosque to a different location. It is strange that something so obvious escapes these officials.

What do they believe will happen? Is it so difficult to predict that at some point the struggle over the building of this mosque will turn violent? The subjection of this city to further violence is the exact result sought by many radical Muslims who war against America. Based on recent reports of politically motivated acts of violence, I predict that initial strike will come from someone on the left seeking to show their contempt for the conservative right. Or perhaps it will be another Muslim trying to prove his worth and follow in the footsteps of Mohammed.

From a historical point of view, the desecration of graveyards never goes unanswered. If one believes in the divine, then the answer as to why such acts result in tragedy is obvious.

The World Trade Center site is a graveyard. No sensible person would try to build a shrine to the ones who turned this place into a graveyard, at this site. And, no sensible politician should condone such actions.

Attempts to build a mosque at this site is, in the eyes of most Americans, another act of violence by radical Muslims directed against this country. A word of advice to the current mayor of NYC regarding his contemplation of what to do with the WTC site: this sacred ground belongs to all Americans and you better start listening to them.

Worth a Thousand Words.

Above is the photo of Obama as he recently spoke about how he has improved our world. The fly found his mouth just so irresistible. What is one to think:

Full of shit?

Lying sack of shit?

Potty mouth?

Blame Israel Party.

Many in the muslim world have used words such as illegitimate, inhuman, barbaric,... to describe Israeli interference with the Turkey-Gaza terror cruise. Such words seem appropriate when coming from these countries as they share a long history of barbarism. They are simply repeating their early school lessons that Jews are not human and that Israel has no right to exist.

The fact that Europeans are echoing such denouncements means that a large muslim presence now exists in these European countries. No surprises there.

What happens next?

Turkey will use its Jewish population as hostages to extract various sacrifices from the Jews in Israel and America. These Jews are now hostages. The Jews in Turkey and Venezuela are no longer citizens-they are hostages. Do the Jews in France, England, Italy, and Russia await a similar fate? Is this what awaits Jews in America?
Christians should easily recognize these events.

We definitely have not survived for over 5700 years because of our wit, large numbers, or brute strength. Time to start praying.

Goodbye Turkey.

There was once a vibrant state called Iran. Tehran was a modern industrial city and the people of this country were contributing members of our modern world. Then came the mullahs and darkness. Now young girls are raped by police and their families must pay fines to pick up their dead bodies.

We have lost Turkey to these monsters. I once planned to visit it as tourist but now I see little difference between the hospitality offered in Turkey, North Korea, Syria, or any other shit hole teeming with murderous lunatics.

A day to remember all those who gave their lives for ours.

They gave their lives so that we may be free.
So that we do not live as slaves.
So that our lives are ours to live.
So that we won't live in fear or shame.
Don't throw it away.

Lies, Just Lies.

During a meeting with Calderone, Obama said:

"We also discussed the new law in Arizona, which is a misdirected effort -- a misdirected expression of frustration over our broken immigration system, and which has raised concerns in both our countries. Today, I want every American to know my administration has devoted unprecedented resources in personnel and technology to securing our border. Illegal immigration is down, not up, and we will continue to do what's necessary to secure our shared border.

And I want everyone, American and Mexican, to know my administration is taking a very close look at the Arizona law."

The Perpetual Campaign.

Racism, class warfare, lies.

The longer this bastard sits in office, the worse off our country shall be. He corrupts all that he touches.

A Few Words About Arizona.

People who enter our country should be expected to respect our laws. If they enter the country illegally, then they should expect deportation. I don't understand the fierce opposition. And, I am a 1st generation immigrant. Sure, I get the Democratic uproar: They believe that Hispanics will vote for them if they support for amnesty. Also, the Democrats believe that once felons obtain the right to vote, that they will mostly vote for other Democrats. What's next? How about lowering the voting age to 5? Obama's public school program is well on its way.

Second chances in politics and beyond.

The other day I was channel surfing and caught a glimpse of this show called "Blood Sweat and T-shirts". This is a show that features a small group of spoiled British teenagers who like clothing bargains and fast food. These kids are sent to work in some clothing factory in India or a shrimp processing plant in Indonesia. Then a supervisor either berates these wanna-be-actors or shows them some compassion even thought their work is shoddy. This show is aired on the "green" channel I guess the producers of this show wanted a Western audience to feel guilt over the wasteful lives we live, and to show the world how much suffering goes on within undeveloped countries that our jobs have been outsourced to. Personally, I could care less about the whinny bratty teenagers that star in this show; in fact seeing them suffer gives me a weird sense of pleasure-something the show producers likely intended.

As I thought about my reaction, my mind started wandering and I recalled another reality TV show - "The Apprentice". In this particular show, the contestants get to kiss Donald Trump's ass while he goes through some idiotic rant. I guess there is an appeal to some, involving a dumb fantasy about striking it rich for people who lack the ability to succeed in the world outside the television set. Obviously this generalization doesn't apply to all as the producers recently inserted a disgraced politician; specifically the former Illinois governor -Blago. Maybe they thought that inserting someone infamous into the hot seat would improve their ratings, but it hasn't worked. As an aside note, I think that the real problem is with the head idiot on this show, Trump. Every time I hear his voice on the radio, I cringe and quickly change the channel.

Although these reality shows are largely dismal failures, Mel Brooks was onto something when he made The Producers. By that I mean that if you put a whole bunch of wrongs into a show, you may get something right.

So here is my proposal:

Send Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and a whole lot of political wrongs to work at a sweat shop in India and shrimp factories in Indonesia.

Get it all on film: their whining, incompetence, spinelessness, trying to survive through backstabbing, being berated by an illiterate shop foreman...

I bet that this show would draw a world wide audience. Hell, the advertisements would be so profitable that they might even lower our national debt.

Lastly, perhaps one of these wrongs might actually learn about the world and develop a sense of worth. Maybe even cultivate a strength in character. Then our country can benefit from his or her return.

I do believe in second chances, but I also believe that to benefit from a second chance you must be able to learn from your mistakes. Such a show would teach Americans some truth about the people they elected and hopefully give us all a second chance at democracy and prosperity.

Mutual respect in the office.

Here is an interesting story I found on the web about a doctor, her patient, and Obama. Apparently the patient didn't like some of the posters in her doctors office and tore them down. Afterwards she sent a hostile note to her doctor admonishing her for being "disgusting towards those she serves". The doctor told this particular patient to find someone else to serve her. Good for her.

The most inspiring bit of information in this story has to do with the posters. Apparently they have been endorsed by the Florida Medical Association. After the way AMA has sold us out, I lost hope in professional associations. It seems that there exist some clubs that I actually would not mind belonging to.

Stalingrad is both a place and a moment in time, that is recognized by all East Europeans as where the Nazi war machine was stopped. After that heroic battle, the Nazis went into retreat.

Today, in Massachusetts a historic event took place. Americans stood up to their present day tyrants and said: NO, you will not pass. From this point on, it doesn't matter if they hear us or not.

In the coming days, there will be lamentations and blame passed along the Democrats. They are wondering who is next. The people of Massachusetts have a special message to their effete elitist: Kerry, you are next!
