Okay, this is simple enough for even John Kerry and Howard Dean supporters to understand: American service members are safer serving in Iraq than they are in the US. The US mortality rate, according to the Centers for Disease Control, is 834 deaths per 100,000 of population per year. There have been 200,000 (average) US troops in Iraq for 18 months. The death rate for 200,000 Americans should be 1,668 per year, meaning that since
These weeks later, as summer fades into fall-wth a taste of fall weather included- and as I help my girls get ready for school (shoe shopping, labelling folders, notebooks, crayons and markers), I can still go off an a tangent about this summer’s experience. We went on a family camping trip last week, and I made it until the third night before I broke out the pictures and went off about what fun I had
I am simultaneously juggling four new websites, all built on the DotNetNuke portal framework with massive customization. The biggest challenge so far has been deciding What goes into the site? What main tabs? What sub tabs? What security roles? What can each security role see and do? In other words, basic site design and flow. In almost every site I’ve designed, I’ve begun down the wrong path. I don’t get far, mind you, but I
Once upon a time, the St. Louis Blues was my favorite sports team. Hockey is my favorite sport. But Larry Pleau has ruined this franchise. Larry is an arrogant, incompetent General Manager who has driven away more Hall of Fame hockey players than he has thumbs on his fumbling two hands. Brett Hull wanted to finish his career in St. Louis. St. Louis hockey fans have been praying for three years tht Hullie would return.
Howard Dean assists terrorism. The New York Times assists terrorism. MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN support terrorism. Most people understand this conceptually, but we haven’t had any hard proof. Until now. Since last Saturday when Tom Ridge held a press conference to announce that 5 specific building and other unspecified buildings were targets of on-going Qaeda planning, the liberals herein mentioned, plus their Amen Corner in every city coffee shop and faculty lounge in the

What did I tell you people a week ago? I said that, reading between the lines, Kerry will not fight bin Laden, but schmooze him. Today, he admitted as much by saying he will “fight . . . a more sensitive war on terror.” Whatever funding the Bush Administration hasn’t cut off from terrorists will now be redirected to the Kerry campaign. Either way, the terrorists lose their money.
“The administration was obviously right to warn the country that Al Qaeda had apparently studied financial institutions in three cities with the idea of a possible attack.” That’s from the newspaper that only Tuesday declared that George Bush made up the terror alert just to win votes. The New York Times, its editors, and everyone who bought the political theory of the terror alert are un-American.
Why beat around the bush, so to speak. If you think the Administration invented the terror alert for 5 buildings in order to boost the President’s re-election chances, you are un-American. Should terrorism strike between now and the election, they will either claim that the GOP coordinated the attack (no doubt designed to kill Democrats in key voting districts), or blame the Administration for failing to protect us. The media will oblige them–on both counts.
