"We are here in Washington to say that the problem with this war is not just a question of war and diplomacy. It is part and parcel of everything we are trying to communicate to people in this country -- the question of racism, which is rampant in the military ... the hypocrisy in our taking umbrage in the Geneva Conventions and taking that as justification of this war when we are more guilty than any other body for violations of those Geneva Conventions; in the use of free fire zones, harassment interdiction fire, search-and-destroy missions, the bombings, the torture of prisoners, the killing of prisoners, all accepted policy by many units in South Vietnam."
Questions for the debate (which won't get asked) for Sen. Kerry:
1) Do you still believe that the U.S. military is racist? If not, when did it change, and what changed it?
2) Was the U.S. military more guilty of violating the Geneva Conventions than the North Vietnamese Amry ... the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia?
3) Did you endanger U.S. POWs by making the above statement in 1971 while many Americans were held by the North Vietnamese?
4) Should an American denigrate the conduct of his military and its mission during a time of war?
Just thoughts ...
But that was then (when he was flipping) ... now he's flopping, in more ways than one. Give 'em hell "W".
Out till tomorrow ...
So ... in the meantime, let the following Q&A answer some of your questions
Okay, some of you have asked ... so here are the best answers I can give:
Q: Is Daisy your real name? Is your name Cutter? Or what?
A: No. Only libs take this seriously. They probably think that some diabolical Republican scientist named their child after some hideous gas bomb they were working on in the 1960s.
Q: Then identify yourself, you brilliant swine. Who are you, any way?
A: I shan't. Not here. Not yet, any way. I have told some of you ... you know who you are. I will probably "come out" the early part of next year for every one, unless Sen. Kerry puts me in an ad before the election is over. You know Sen. Kerry admires my parents for the way they have handled this difficult situation. Then I will have to take remedial measures.
Q: Why not just use your real name?
A: The principal reason is for the protection of the people I work with, here in Tehran. Just kidding. But the main reason is for the benefit of the people I work with.
Q: Will you at least tell if you are a "he" or a "she"?
A: I've got bad news. If you can't tell ... then you may be a liberal. I have reported that I am a single black mother of five. I regret the error. I hereby categorically deny and recant that statement. It is false. I have four children.
Q: Is Daisy going to be around after the election?
A: Absolutely. Stay tuned.
Q: Why are Leftists odious and to be scorned?
A: This is one of the great threads of truth that knits all of life together. As Lance Berkman was meant to hit a baseball, as an ice cold tea on a hot Texas August day was meant to go down the hatch, as pooch dooh was meant to be scraped from your sandles before entering the house, as jihadis were meant to be smoked out, so Leftists are odious and to be scorned. I hope this helps.
Am I "out to get" Muslims?
Hardly. I fully respect the right of Muslims to peacefully practice their faith -- here in America and abroad. The key word here is "peacefully". There are many Muslims who, like me, are outraged by the actions of jihadis around the world. After all, the jihadis are killing far more Muslims than they are killing "infidels".
I advocate taking the fight to militant Muslim extremists who practice "jihad", or Holy War. An excellent site that details the dangers posed by global jihad is Jihad Watch.
The fact that I am a Christian in no way makes me intolerant or bent on a Christian "holy war". Quite the contrary, like the President said so eloquently in his acceptance speech at the RNC in 2000, I am tolerant because of my Christian faith, not in spite of it.
Important things to know about the site
Guiding Philosophy -- I am a conservative, on matters of national defense, economics and on cultural issues. However, in this time of danger, I believe that national security is paramount. All of our other discussions are important, but they have a different and lower priority when we are under fire. I have said, on multiple occasions, that some of the "perfect church" crowd may have one of their arguments interrupted by a dirty bomb explosion some day if we are not careful. Until election day, re-electing the commander-in-chief is the central front for Daisy Cutter in the War on Jihad.
And this: We were all Americans on 9/11.
"The New Soldier" ( http://freekerrybook.org) -- I am discussing/dissecting John Kerry's 1971 anti-war book each day until 1 November. Kerry has never renounced the book, or any of his anti-war activities for that matter. I think all Americans should read this book and be informed of exactly what John Kerry did in opposing American interests in Viet Nam.
Other issues on the horizon -- After the election, my plan is to discuss/focus on the following, in addition to nat'l security and winning the War on Jihad: cultural decline, immigration, educational opportunity, and reforming the health care and social security systems so that they work long-term.
Warning -- If you can't laugh at yourself and the Left, you will probably not get and enjoy a good part of this site.
What's with the crazy links?
The link names are all in fun -- and for my entertainment. After all, it's hard to get Lefties to look at Rush's site, but if they think it's a porn site, bingo. It's like getting a conservative virus. At any rate, here is an explanation of the links:
In Service to the Nation -- Groups/organizations that I believe in and/or am financially supporting.
In My Unit -- I read and enjoy these blogs, and these people are kind enough to read the Cutter and provide their insightful comments, as well.
Navigators -- News sources that I regularly use.
Forward Observers -- Top-notch bloggers. I read each of these pretty much on a daily basis, to see not only what is happening, but where the news is going.
Command and Control -- Opinion leaders who have my attention.
Battle Damage Assessment -- All the polling info you need.
"Cleared Hot" Leftist Material -- Leftist blogs that I visit, read, and battle with, from time to time. Just so I can keep tabs on 'em and get inside their puny little grapes.
I am also a member of Milblogs and Homespun Bloggers. So, their blogrolls are listed, as well.
If you still have questions, send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for loving America and doing your part to help keep us strong and free.
I don't post comments because I'm scared of them. I've got two uncles who are career military who have worked me over better than you ever could.
But I DO believe in open access to ideas and points of view, so best of luck to you in your blog.
Progressive Blog Digest
P.S. I am going to shock my readers with a post-debate endorsement of Pres. Bush. "
Okay, so he didn't write the P.S, but he did send the nice comment. Nick, if I could get a hold of you, you'd be screamin' for your uncles to rescue you. Just kidding, my guilt-ridden progressive friend. Here, here for free speech! I hope we both do well, and that you capture a huge portion of the shrinking leftist market and that I become the next "King Kong" of the blogosphere.
Note: Sick of the pre-debate hype. I have determined already that although Bush didn't present his views very well in the debate tonight (again), he won because he is right. Kerry's a Maha.
Later tonight ... more from "The New Soldier"
Wednesday, September 29, 2004
The book is divided into six (6) parts: 1) Preface by the editors; 2) Introduction by Kerry, which is a summary of his April 22, 1971 congressional testimony; 3) Chronology of "Operation Dewey Canyon III", the VVAW 1971 march on D.C.; 4) Testimonials of supposed veterans and family members about the evils of the Viet Nam War and the American troops that fought it; 5) Epilogue by Kerry; 6) Appendix containing a) profiles of the protesters, and b) complete congressional testimony of Kerry.
I will be quoting from various parts of the book, in no particular order. Make no mistake about this book. It is anti-American to the core. Further, it is anti-American during a time when we Americans should have been standing by our troops in harms way. It seems to strike a familiar theme.
Here's today's quote, from Kerry's Introduction:
"... [I]f you read carefully the President's last speech to the people of this country, you can see that he says, and says clearly, "but the issue, gentlemen, this issue is fighting terrorism, and the question is whether or not we will leave that country to the terrorists or whether or not we will try to give it hope to be a free people." But the point is that they are not a free people now, and we cannot fight terrorism all over the world. I think we should have learned that lesson by now."
Pretty incredible, huh? Except Kerry actually said "communism" where I have inserted "terrorism".
It's today that he's making the argument in the quote above.
If all goes well, I will go to Haloscan this weekend (we'll see). So ... get off my back.
Also, today, King Kong mentioned the Votergasm site, and the fact that the gals over there were spazzing regarding getting hammered from on high yesterday. Well, as luck would have it ... today, Rex shut down the site by repeatedly looking at the blonde Republican again. And I am Mr./Ms. Cutter to you, Rex. Just kidding.
Maha (PW says "Maha" means "Baboon" ... and since the Great One is in fact King Kong, I am down with it) merely mildly alluded to the site and it is down again. BAM!!!! Just like that! Millions of lemmings running to their computers to act on the very thoughts of the Great Maha. Immediate gratification justice.
As that great undecided, moderate voter Herman Munster would say, "Darn! Darn! Darn! Darn! ...."
But ... Hat's off to the Dittoheads who infiltrated the Votergasm forum yesterday. The comments were absolutely hilarious ... I mean, think about how many different ways you can have a play on words with Kerry and ... well, getting something done to you. Very nice. Plus, the "anonymous fat voter" card was dealt from the bottom of the deck. (More on that below.)
One more time .... ALL HAIL THE GREAT AND POWERFUL MAHA!!!!! HE IS THE ONE WHO COMMANDS US. WE WILL DO WHATEVER HE SAYS ... WE WILL DO WHATEVER HE THINKS ... WE MUST .... WE MUST ... CALL DOWN JUDGMENT AGAIN, OH MAHA !!!
Sorry, I drifted off into morning prayers.
Some very disturbing questions have been raised. First, the horrifying specter of the "fat, nasty Democrat" woman in waiting is depressing turnout for VG. I mean, there is no quality control, and the libertines will not be denied their pleasure. Plus, news wire reports have confirmed that the blonde on the site is a token Republican (to avoid FEC regulators). Studies show that most people who participate in such stunts are gruesomely ugly, immoral, and stupid -- i.e., the Democrat base.
Plus, children like Rex (who has nothing to offer because he can't even vote, for crying out loud!!!! ... hey Rex, just grab one of those fraudulent absentee ballots the Demos got that are floating all over Iowa) are being lured to the site by the blonde Republican Medusa. This outrage must stop at once!
Remember, boys and girls ... this election is not over until the fat lady sings.
P.S. Question: What do you call Edith Bunker with no, I should say a bad, personality? Ms. Heinz Kerry.
Out again and off to another mission ...
Also, Kerry faces the specter of this face actually lightening during the debate if the debate goes well for the president and correspondingly, turning redder than a beet if he gets on a roll. This could be disasterous, however, as polls show that American voters are absolutely not ready to elect an American Indian as president.
No matter how the Demos try to color it, things don't look good. Like Kerry.

Upgrading the site to add some links (not sausages ... you know I only cook fried squirrel on the skillet on the pit any way this time of year), etc. so I can use it better myself. Maybe you can, too.
Thanks to my buddy Jeremy at American Warmonger for the class on HTML. However, the record should reflect that Pusillanimous Wanker was also available to lend a hand. Of course, he would have probably had me broadcasting all kinds of crazy messages in Arabic ... but still. Thanks also to Sherry, whose helping to bring WV home for W, for her help. I do appreciate the camaraderie out here in the 'sphere.
I am still working on my "site upgrades" (sounds like it's a big deal, when you put it that way). That is, I'm still adding sausages. My plan is to add the links and such that I actually read. I mean, I could try and impress you libs by putting the NY Times or CNN on there. But what's the use? I don't read 'em much, and there's not much "there" there. And if there is "there" there, I'll find out about it. Don't worry.
Now, back to ideological combat ...
Sean Hannity came up with the moniker. The Authentic One looks a tad bit different as he prepares for the first presidential debate, doesn't he? Why is that? You be the judge.
Of course, with Rush's massive audience typing in the web address, the "voter registration" activists soon found their server smoking and in ruins. Calling down judgment from ON HIGH!!!! All hail, the Great Maha Rushie!!!
Of course, the libertines will be back up and running soon. Rush told us (you libs know, we just think what he tells us to think and do what he tells us to do) to send the good folks there a nice little note playing along ... you know, like we're unlikely voters. Don't send children there, though.
This latest effort shows that the Demos are in full-fledged panic and cheat mode. The dead are up and voting. The felons are being released. The French and other foreigners are here to vote.
So, be on guard. They can't win any other way. Their candidate is Kerry.
And there it was, with the inflammatory and disrespectful cover in full view. I discussed it here three days ago, and displayed the cover mocking the U.S. Marines raising the American flag on Iwo Jima.
Kerry operatives, like Butler, will now have to try to explain away Kerry's effort at undermining the American war effort, while disrespecting and endangering young Americans in harm's way.
Yet, Kerry's words of contempt for America's armed forces are unmistakable. This passage caught my eye:
"The Marines say they never leave behind their wounded. These men have left all the casualties and retreated behind a pious shield of public rectitude. They have left the real stuff of their reputations bleaching behind them in the sun." Read it for yourself.
Hannity remarked that "this book might become an issue in this campaign." We'll see. If it does, it will will probably be up to the pajamahadeen in the blogosphere.
More tomorrow ...
P.S. I should note, in fairness, that one of the six flag-raisers on Iwo Jima was Navy Corpsman John Bradley, who went on to earn the Navy Cross (second only to the Medal of Honor). Only three of the six flag-raisers lived through the battle, and Bradley was the only one who had a somewhat normal life after the war. If you haven't read a book that has changed your life in a while, read Flags of Our Fathers, the amazing story of the six flag-raisers by Bradley's son James.

So, here is the deal: Only liberals should participate. You are encouraged to provide a one- to two-sentence ... or three (if it's good and pithy) comment/insult/description of your "right-wing-nut-job" of choice: President Bush, the VP, even me. You can even talk about us as a group. You know we all take our orders from Rush every day to know what to think any way.
Here are my standards for judging and for awarding points: 1) Originality (adding "head" or "face" to the end of one of your usual descriptions does not count as originality); 2) lengthy adjectives and adverbs; 3) nouns of less than four words; 4) nouns of more than four words; 5) brevity; 6) words I have to look up (I know your standard expletives, so ...); and 7) humor (you gotta make me at least smile to score).
And I do smile at you all. Don't underestimate your ability to be funny -- even when you are not trying to be funny. Unfiltered profanity will almost certainly result in disqualification. Come on. Use those superior brains of yours, the same ones that made those nice people in south Florida vote for Buchanan ... and Nader ... and Gore. I mean, we voted for Bush, for crying out loud. I mean, you voted for that genius Gore, the Corn Dog in Chief (you know, a tubular meat product on a stick) -- surely the most odious miscreant ever occupy the office of vice president. Indeed, Gore is odious and should be scorned. There, does that help?
Okay ... If you're still feeling mellow out there, here are some fightin' words to get you going:
1) Thank God we stole that election in Florida, but it was way too close. So, we're (you know, Jeb and George) keepin' our hurricane road blocks up in Demo neighborhoods ... just in case ... and handin' out the "polling place location guides" to those very discerning Democrat voters as we speak.
2) One main reason for the surge of Pres. Bush in the polls -- Republicans are cracking down on those reliable Demo voting blocks -- felons, foreigners and dead people.
3) So what if there are no WMDs in Iraq. We knew that. Besides, the Iraq War is justified because it's good for business and bad for the environment.
4) Animals are not people.
5) There should not be as many abortions as possible.
6) NAMBLA is a 527 coordinating its efforts with the DNC.
7) All wealth should not be stolen from hard-working Americans and handed to Frenchmen working in cohoots with terrorists via the U.N. Oil-for-Food Program.
... and finally, the MOAB:
8) God bless America.
There ... that ought to get the juices flowing. Don't let me down ... you commie #%$&**.
P.S. I have searched the blogosphere for Pussguzzler ... with whom I was involved in a 38-comment firefight a while back. Can't find that sociopath. If any one knows what bridge that troll is living under, please let me know. Late.

He can't help himself. Here's a picture of John Kerry taken at a rally earlier this week, "reporting for duty" -- again. Kerry's focus is now on Iraq, apparently to the finish line of the campaign. And the Republicans said, "Amen. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition."
What the Left doesn't understand -- like my pal Pusillanimous Wanker" (no, I didn't make his stage name up, but I like it) -- is that although they love it when Kerry turns back into Dean, most of the country doesn't. I know, you libs don't believe me. But, listen to the words of yet another Bush Democrat -- Pres. Clinton's former and best strategist -- Dick Morris.
Kerry complains, moans, arm-chair quarterbacks about Iraq, but he has no solution. He never has. Heck, he's part of the "problem". He voted for the Iraq War when it had overwhelming public support and credible intelligence reports to back the action. When he was running against Dean for the Demo nomination, however, he and Edwards then voted against the aid package for our troops, ostensibly to prove that are real Democrats. It worked, and Kerry got the nomination. Now, he is stuck trying to sell his Iraq position not just to Democrat primary voters (the same people who think Joe Lieberman is completely out-of-touch) but to American voters. Big problem. He should stay away from this "quagmire", but he won't. Oh, sweet irony.
Further, Kerry emphasizes national security issues of any kind at his own peril, for whenever those issues are most important to voters (at least in the last 35 years), Republicans win, and win big. People trust Republicans to be tougher with bad guys, and for good reasons, like philosophy and history.
Morris is exactly right. Kerry should have gone down the middle on Iraq and hit hard on domestic issues. But hey, I'm not complaining. Every time the Left comes out in the open (i.e., 1980, 1984, 1988 ... i.e., "I'll raise your taxes", or "I'm a card-carrying member of the ACLU"), good things happen.
Plus, Kerry's talking down our efforts in Iraq for political gain opens him up to a discussion of his very similar misbehavior during the Viet Nam War. (See Part II below.) The SBVT are re-loading ...
The Great One said on his show this past week that the Kerry campaign can be explained by only two words: Hillary Clinton.
Here's Kerry's magnum opus of his service to the nation during the Viet Nam War ... the cover of the book that his campaign has tried to hide. The thing is not in print anywhere, but you can get it print it yourself here free. Note how the hippies on the cover stand in a pose mocking the Marines who raised the flag on Iwo Jima.
"The New Soldier" was a hallmark of Kerry's efforts to undermine the American effort to defeat the Communists in Viet Nam. Kerry was full-fledged into this effort while Americans were fighting and dying in Southeast Asia. This is what was and is in the soul of John Kerry. For those of you on the Left who doubt that such feelings still reside in John Kerry, then when has he apologized for this outrageous, anti-American conduct? When will he apologize?
The answer to this question is found in the new Iraq focus by Kerry. It all sounds eerily similar: Run down the U.S. war effort and embolden the enemy, all the while trying to improve your political standing. This time, the stakes are higher, however. And this time, the country has the experience of Viet Nam to avoid making the same mistakes again.
Watch for the SBVT to lower the boom and hammer this point home in October. God bless 'em. For squids, they're not bad.
Semper Fidelis ...
Note: The photograph above wouldn't play as well on the radio.
P.S. The picture means even more and looks even better when you consider that former Clinton advisers are in prominent positions and performing so effectively in the Kerry campaign -- i.e. Joe Lockhart.

He just can't help himself. This is the Kerry version of the "Dukakis in the tank" pose. Alas, the Republicans have noticed: See "Windsurfing".
The scary thing for Kerry is that the Republicans not only have the goods, but they also have the salesmen.
This missive was inspired by the excellent post on Marvin Hutchens' Little Red Blog regarding Colorado's Amendment 36, which is on the ballot this fall. Amendment 36 would replace Colorado's winner-take-all electoral vote system with a proportional-award system. Marvin's entirely-valid point is that Amendment 36 would make a small state like Colorado virtually irrelevant in electoral politics. He further points out that had Amendment 36 passed and been in place in 2000 that Al Gore (the Corn-Dog-in-Chief) would have been president on 9/11 and would be "commanding" the War on Jihad. Yikes.
President Bush will probably win Colorado again this year, albeit not by a large margin. So, the question arises: What if Amendment 36 passes and does in fact (after legal challenges) take effect this year? Would Kerry be president, as Gore would have been elected in 2000? Let's take a look.
First, assume that both candidates win the same states they won in 2000 -- never mind the trouble that Kerry is having in Pennsylania, Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon, Wisconsin, etc. Assume that all things remain the same, and further assume that Pres. Bush scores a narrow win in Colorado, and Amendment 36 legally applies. The result? Pres. Bush still wins. Why? Because this is the first election after the last census, and the electoral map has changed. There are more congressmen from "red" states now, and hence more electoral votes.
Check out the electoral breakdown now as compared to 2000. Here's the affected states won by Bush and Gore in 2000, with the respective changes in electoral votes:
Bush states .....
Colorado -3 (8 electoral votes in 2000; 9 in 2004, with assumption that Pres. Bush gets 5)
North Carolina +1
= Net gain for Pres. Bush of 3 electoral votes.
Kerry states ...
Colorado +4 (again, assumes close Bush win and passage of Amendment 36)
New York -2
= Net loss for Kerry of 2 electoral votes.
So, here's what the foregoing means:
1) Even if Amendment 36 passes and applies, Kerry still loses ... and by a bigger margin than Gore, who lost 271-266. The margin under the foregoing scenario would be Bush 274-264.
2) The change in the electoral map is the result of population shifts, which are in large part the result of freedom and opportunity in the growing (and predominantly red) states. The old liberal stand-bys are losing population (i.e., New York) or their growth is slowing to a crawl (i.e., California). Who wants to live in a liberal Mecca ... where they would force their non-traditional lifestyles down your traditional throat and tax/regulate business opportunities into oblivion? Liberals do, but ... this isn't a liberal country.
3) The changed electoral map means ... even assuming Amendment 36 is operative ... that Pres. Bush can even lose a small state that he won in 2000, like WV, NH, or Nevada, and still win. The president would need some help from the House of Representatives if he lost West Virginia or Nevada, but he'd get it. Ain't electoral politics grand?
But get this ...
4) If Amendment 36 does not pass and/or is not found to apply for this election and if Kerry somehow wins Colorado (he won't, but indulge me), then ... if everything broke as it did in 2000 ... Kerry would win the election.
You need to check with Marvin, but I would bet those pushing for the passage of Amendment 36 are disgruntled Democrats who know that their state is going the way of the elephant, and they want to a Democrat voice in electing the president. Maybe it's just the principle of the matter. Are you kidding? Come on. The Democrats in Colorado will/would vote against Amendment 36 in a heartbeat if they think it will help Kerry get elected.
Alas, none of the foregoing is going to matter, as Pres. Bush is going to continue to pull away. Stay tuned.

P.S. Hat tip (is that what you call it?) to Bunker Mulligan.
P.P.S. I know some of you have commented that I need to do this/that, get Haloscan, etc. Listen, I don't know what I am doing and I am trying to figure this thing out, so ...
Wednesday, September 22, 2004
Query: Is the proper title for libs spelled: a) "liberal weiner"; b) "liberal wiener"; or c) "liberal weener"?
I am kind of leaning toward a) because "weiner" can also be pronounced "whiner" ... which is very appropriate. So a) is kind of like a "switch hitter", you could say.
This issue is not insignificant, either, because we have derivative questions of ... Is it "liberal weenie", "liberal weinee", or "liberal wienee"? A lot hinges on getting the first question right. So ...
And ... if you are wondering if you are a "liberal oscar meyer", then you probably are. If you wonder what a picture of a LW looks like, then see the photos below.
P.S. Quick shout out to the American Warmonger for the inspiration. You are the "wind beneath my wings", you right-wing-nut-job.
As a former Marine, I was horrified to see the picture above. You might note the resemblance ... Yes, the pic above is our beloved, duped, forgery-sellin' Dan Rather, 50 years ago as a Marine recruit. Check out the excellent post on Rather's brush with the USMC at The Evangelical Outpost.
The photo was taken during boot camp, but Rather did not graduate and earn the title "Marine". It seems that young Dan was unable to complete Marine Corps boot camp because he was medically unfit -- perhaps due to rheumatic fever as a child. He did not have sufficient stamina to become a Marine. It's funny, though. He was able to play college football at Sam Houston State in Texas. Hmmm.
Did Dan figure out something about the Marine Corps that led to the early split ... or vice versa? The Marine Corps' screening system is pretty tried and true.
One thing is for sure: The USMC may not have been crazy about Dan 50 years ago, but they like him even less now.
Kerry's Iraq speech on Monday was a single, but unfortunately it was wiped out by a double play ball by Dan Rather, as the Great One so aptly pointed out yesterday ... proving again the existence of the Almighty. This liberal weiner doesn't make contact much, and then ... well, he's a liberal weiner.
Again ... hero for America = may be qualified to be president.
Hero for the enemy = Unfit for Command.

Just When You Thought it Might be Safe to Market Yourself as a War Hero ... the Next Swift Boat Vets for Truth Ad
However, the time for debating the mission is over. Rather, the debate now should be: How do we best accomplish the most decisive American victory? Instead, Sen. Kerry continually seeks to appease the Deaniacs and Michael Moore fringe (aka mainstream Democrats) by recklessly attacking our efforts against the jihadis.
This is a familiar pattern for Sen. Kerry. The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth have now turned to Kerry's troubling anti-war activities while Americans were in harm's way, and for good reason. The SBVT's latest devastating broadside hits Kerry for his flip-flopping about his pitching of his medals. www.swiftvets.com. As usual, the most devastating opponent of Kerry is ... er .... Kerry.
If the junior senator from Massachusetts still wants to play the war hero, he's got to answer not only for his questionable four-month service record, but also for how he endangered American troops and the nation's mission against the North Vietnamese Communists after he came back. His anti-war activities ... done while a naval officer ... did just this.
Don't believe me? Ask the Communists themselves:
Friday, September 17, 2004
The 3-year-old West Virginia girl in this picture, Sophia Parlock, cries after the Bush-Cheney sign she was holding was torn up by Kerry supporters. Her father, Phil Parlock, took Sophia and her older brother to the Huntington, W.V. rally where Demo V.P. candidate John Edwards was speaking.
In another incident, www.newsday.com reports that a Kerry supporter was arrested for alcohol-induced air rage after he harrassed and continued to touch a female Bush supporter on a Northwest Airlines flight.
Meanwhile, Dan Rather stands pat, knowing that he is justified in pursuing Pres. Bush's purported NG service discrepancies. As arrogance increases, CBS ratings decrease ... and voters smell a rat. Rather won't apologize, and the situation will only get worse for CBS and for its allies in this flap -- the Democrats.
As for Pres. Bush, his lead over Sen. Kerry increases -- 55-42, according to Gallup's most recent survey.
For the commander-in-chief to be reelected so that he can continue to lead us in the War on Jihad, however, his supporters must avoid the familiar tendencies of the Hard Left Demos -- hatred and arrogance. No arrogance or complacency allowed -- 46 days to go.

See the report at: www.cnsnews.com//ViewSpecialReports.asp?Page=\SpecialReports\archive\200409\SPE20040916a.html
Stay tuned for more from ... "the Incredible Shrinking War Hero" ....
Here on the 'Cutter, you will find information and opinion ... some serious, some irreverent, some both ... tackling the issues presented by the War on Jihad -- this is what it is after all, a war against those Islamic militants who wage so-called "Holy War" against America and her allies.
From our Irreverent Division .... You will note the unfortunate picture below of Sen. Kerry when he was recently playing catch with Tar-Ray-Zah. (It was sent to me by a friend with the subject line: Why Kerry Will Lose the South.) It seems that we must do our duty by focusing on the election more and more as we near Nov. 2. There are a couple of reasons for this:
1) If Pres. Bush is not reelected, we could lose this War on Jihad. It's still possible we won't have the national will long-term to win it even if the president is reelected, but ... one thing is for sure: Kerry wins ... and the jihadis are on the march. Vice Pres. Cheney spoke the truth.
2) Thanks to the Kerry crowd (" ... cut off ears, sawed off heads, set fire to villages ... "), politics in this country unfortunately no longer ends at the water's edge.
So ... I pledge my best efforts in this blogging endeavor ... and I pledge that the only cuss words herein will be written by Leftists wounded by the 'Cutter's truth. I sincerely hope that these Lefties don't sabotage my site by cussing up a blue streak and trying to "un-Homespun" me.
P.S. Did you hear that the mainstream media is reporting that CBS might have used some fake documents to try and trash Pres. Bush? I gotta get me one of them there blogospheres. (Does it fit in a pickup?) I understand they are pretty good at uncovering falsehoods and preventing tyranny. I wonder if they have one in Iraq or Afghanistan yet.
And ... next up .... The Swift Vets' next ad campaign.

The bottom line in war, as in all competitions, is that the better side usually wins. This War on Jihad is both a war of ideas and a war of bullets and bombs. We know we have superior troops and equipment. We could send the Marines into Fallujah and deal with the so-called "restive" city in a heartbeat. The enemy we are fighting is pathetic in terms of training, tactics, and equipment. Plus, they love to die. The problem is, however, that people with more information than me believe that the best way to promote a stable Iraq long-term is not to flatten Fallujah and kill every one who lives there. I have had my questions about this strategy, but I am not in a position to disagree.
In the course of fighting this War on Jihad, we need to remind ourselves and our wayward countrymen that we have superior ideas and justice on our side. We are the good guys. I know the Left can't handle it, but it's true. (If if makes any of you lefties feel better, I don't mean you, okay?) We are winning, and are going to keep on winning, because by God's grace, we are better than our enemies. I was reminded why the past couple of days by some people who said it far better than I could:
1) Monsour Ijaz, the man who provided Pres. Clinton with the opportunity to bag Osama bin Laden in the Sudan, provides an excellent overview of why worldwide Jihad is collapsing: www.nationalreview.com/ijaz/ijaz.asp. In his column, Mr. Ijaz, a Muslim and patriot, provides tremendous insight and reason for optimism three years after 9/11. Reading his column reminded me that Pres. Bush's course of differentiating between jihadis and Islam has been right and productive.
2) Here's a simple premise that keeps me pretty tense these days: To win the War on Jihad, we need to keep our commander-in-chief. If we don't keep Pres. Bush, we may not win this war. But Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., that mad ol' Marine, fired up this Marine when he came back today and tied up a few loose ends from his chat at the RNC: www.opinionjournal.com/editorial/feature.html?id=110005614. And Demos, Zell Miller is no Pat Buchanan. Actually, he is now a Reagan, er Bush, Democrat.
3) And speaking of Pat Buchanan, he and the other naysayers who claim to be "conservatives" or claim to have "worked for Republicans" in order to bolster their credibility to attack conservative causes, drive me crazy. Oh, how the media love to trot them out and praise them for their open-mindedness and being a "mavericks" that we can count on to challenge the powers-that-be, in other words, criticize Pres. Bush. Maybe because he hasn't been that conservative for a long while, the media are ever-forgiving of "maverick" 1992 Pat. The media give especially kingly treatment to Emperor Pat (not as much as the High Priest of Maverickdom, Sen. McCain, but still pretty kingly) because he always has a thousand things to say about how badly America is fighting the War on Jihad ... or is criticizing America for even fighting it at all ... or blaming America for 9/11. Well, thanks to David Frum of the National Review, the Maverick Emperor as of today is officially in the buff: www.nationalreview.com/frum/frum-diary.asp

Receiving Inky's note on this day was quite providential (Inky, that means God-ordained). You see, ever since scaling the rubble in NYC with his bull horn shortly after 9/11/01, the commander-in-chief has been dissecting the jihadis. So, it seems appropriate that we dissect today the arguments of those who would prevent victory in the War on Jihad.
By way of explanation, what apparently set Inky off was my harmless and light-hearted post of 8/3/04 ... Ten (Okay 11) Reasons the War on Jihad Can't be Entrusted to Kerrys. I admit, I resorted to such dirty tactics as pointing out that Sen. Kerry throws a baseball like a girl and holds a Philly Cheesesteak like a dirty bomb. I mean, the guy is patently a sissy. Inky wrote back making fun of the fact that the president doesn't have a lot of medals like Kerry does. Of course, demonstrating hubris if not a sense of timing, Inky's bluster was pre-Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. See www.swiftvets.com.
I wrote Inky back, pointing out essentially that he and his Michael Moore-like brethren have no sense of humor and are rather driven by pure hatred of Pres. Bush. Inky then responded. You can see his comment in its entirety below, but the salient points are destroyed herein:
Inky: "Sorry, man, I'm registered independant (sic), also former Military."
Daisy responds: Inky means he is an independent, which means he likes to portray himself as above the fray and not tied to any particular political party -- too wise and sage to be affiliated to any particular party, that is. Inky is, in fact, a flaming leftist. He is every bit the "Michael Moore Democrat" that I charged, meaning that his defining philosophical identity is blaming America and the institutions that made it great ... which means things like familes and churches, not the United Nations. Inky will vote for John Kerry, assuming he doesn't accidentally vote for both Nader and Kerry, or for Kerry and Buchanan, or for Nader and Buchanan.
Inky, I'll assume that you are telling the truth that you were in the military, but the Coast Guard doesn't count. And ... I know you are not much on spelling and punctuation, but when you capitalize Military, I assume you mean the USMC. One thing is for sure: In the USMC, your views would stand out like, well, Michael Moore at the Republican National Convention.
Look, if you truly support the military, you don't attack the mission while our troops are in harm's way. The time for that debate is over. Even your own candidate says (at least last week he said) that we are going to keep troops in Iraq for 4 years. A couple of weeks ago, it was a six-month withdrawal ... but that's another issue. Listen, you independant, your man says we should be there, too.
Inky: "It seems you fail to understand how many people dislike Bush."
Daisy responds: Inky, I realize that hard leftists like you hate Pres. Bush. No question. If you will look back at my first reply to you, I said this. However, in the leftist echo chamber up there in Connecticut, you probably don't hear much from us out here in fly-over country ... or from the military, either, for that matter.
And please don't tell us about your friend this and that. You'll get buried if you want to go that way. Here's the deal: I would be thrilled to have all of the ballots in the upcoming election cast by the military. Heck, I'd even be willing to let the Army vote. Would you? I doubt it. You know Al Gore and his buddies specifically targeted military votes in Florida for disqualification in 2000. Now, the Republicans in 2004 are trying to make sure that the military votes and these votes are counted.
Inky: "Perhaps if people would see what damage is being done to our American image because of this war they would see it's a wasted effort."
Daisy responds: Again, spoken like a true Military man ... criticizing our efforts while our troops are getting shot at ... this is very Kerry-like. I expect you to next attack our Marines for attacking Fallujah like "Jenjis Khan". Again, the time for patriots to make these arguments is over. The debate now should be: What's the best strategy for the biggest and most decisive American victory? Again, Kerry says he will keep us in Iraq and presumably smoking out jihadis, too. I doubt this, and perhaps you do, too. However, truth-telling is not a leftist virtue.
Plus, I don't much care about American image. The image that guides most of us who want to stay on offense against the jihadis and their allies ... in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere ... is the collapse of the towers on 9/11/01. You obviously have no idea what the Bush Administration has done in Pakistan, Poland, Australia, Britain, Russia, etc. to build alliances that make the progress we have enjoyed since 9/11 possible.
And another thing ... France and Germany need us a lot more than we need them. I know that breaks your U.N.-loving heart, but it's a fact. I know image is important to a youngster like you, but image doesn't kill jihadis. Resolve, or as the French call it "les American troops", does.
Inky: "Perhaps you should get a clue and realize how nasty wartime really is before you spit out ignorant comments like you do."
Daisy responds: You need to have a clue about who you are talking to. But more imporant than my personal experience, I saw the most vile, nasty, evil act of war in this nation's history three years ago. That was war of the worst sort. Given what we are now facing, we must be willing to do whatever it takes.
Inky: "I won't even get into what an Economic Failure that Bush is ..."
Daisy responds: Now, we get down to it, don't we? Inky is a guilt-ridden leftist; thus, he opposes U.S. policy in Iraq for political, not national security, reasons. Plus, Inky ... here you go again with the punctuation thing. When you capitalize "economic failure" to make it "Economic Failure", you are actually using the proper noun designation for Carter Administration economic policy. I know this occurred before you were born, but you need to know your history.
Listen, I don't think Pres. Bush is perfect, either. However, he has done -- by any measure -- a great job in leading the War on Jihad and keeping this country safe since 9/11. The Bush Doctrine (now there's a proper use of capitalization) has demonstrably worked. For this alone, he deserves reelection.
Inky: "I'm disgusted we have a president who would send troops to Iraq period. He knew there was no true reason."
Daisy responds: Here, Inky's Michael Moore meld is complete. In other words, Pres. Bush lied. No one, except the Moore-led lunatics, believes this. You say there was no reason to send troops to Iraq, period. Well, Sen. Kerry says he would have done the same thing as Pres. Bush, even knowing what we know now. Yet, you think that the world would be better off and the U.S. safer if Saddam was still in power. Very few people who are not overweight, unshaven Hollywood types believe this.
And finally ...
Inky: "Why should my Friends die because a f*** face like Bush has no clue about real life?"
Daisy responds: Give a hard leftist an opportunity and he'll eventually show you what he is made of and how he operates -- that is, hatred communicated via ad hominem attack. What type of arrogance and ignorance drives one to argue that Pres. Bush has "no clue about real life"? Amazing. The real question is: Just why does the Left hate Pres. Bush so? Is it his decency? His resolve? His Christian faith? His defense of America?
Perhaps the Hard Left rages against the President because of the insipidity of their lives as compared to his. If you ask them, eventually they'll eloquently tell you what's eating at them: "Bush is a f*** face."
So, we see that three years later, the lessons of 9/11 have faded -- if they ever were learned -- for some. The fact that Inky and his crowd don't get it, though, should serve as a reminder to those of us who do, to be ever-vigilant. As long as enough of the right people remember and get it, we'll be okay.

So ... what do you say to the face of evil itself? What did we say on 9/11? And what do the Russian people say after the massacre of Beslan, where we saw that the jihadis now take over schools and burn, torture, and shoot children in the back? Of course, they use women suicide bombers, but we have gotten used to these "mainstream" tactics.
The hideous death toll climbs above 350 and the tale of the inhumanity and barbarism to the Chechen "separatists" or "insurgents" or "rebels", as the media like to call them, begins to be told. Children dehydrated, forced to drink their own urine. Children burned alive by explosions. Children executed? What?!
Of course, the mainstream media, the same media that that get verklempt to see a pair of panties on the head of a terrorist, buries in its stories that about half of the Beslan attackers were Arabs linked to al Queda. Details, details ...
Maybe Russia has been too cozy with Israel. No? Perhaps a UN security resolution should have been voted on to see if the Russians can be upset about the maniacal actions of the jihadis. Maybe we'll call in the RCLU? Probably not a lot of sentiment now for the "rights" of evil incarnate, though. Surely the press can find something that the Russians have done to bring this about. Where is Mikhail Moorsk when you need him?
It seems, though, that evil needs no excuse. It merely seeks to plunder, kill, and destroy for its own sake. That's what evil does, you see. It's in the job description.
So, what then do you say to an enemy that has no regard for its own life or for yours ... or even your children's?
In Russia, Pres. Putin now laments that Russia may have been too soft or appeasing toward Russia's jihadi tormentors.
But, it's never too late to start doing what is right.
What you say to the face of evil is nothing. Your words rather are for your own offense. You tell them to get on the field. Time for the enemy to play defense, and the game doesn't end until there are no more of them. Running up the score is fine. Payback and then some.
Kinda like the simple man from Texas said after 9/11: "Pretty soon, the people who knocked these buildings down are going to hear from all of us."

You see, tonight, the Jihadis don't have to sleep in their caves with one eye open because Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia, that is, Democrat Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia is in New York at the RNC. The 72-year-old senator and former governor looked tonight like he was ready to take the flamethrower himself back to the caves of Iwo Jima and all the way to the caves of Tora Bora.
Zell Miller completely undressed John Kerry and exposed the Democrat would-be commander-in-chief as a wobbling weenie who would arm America's military with "spit balls".
Miller appeared pissed, but this was no Pat Buchanan culture war speech. You see, the only people on the other side of this culture war are jihadis and Michael Moore Democrats. Miller killed Kerry with the following statements: 1) Miller puts family above party, so he is voting for Pres. Bush; 2) Democrats have been wrong on national security from Carter through the present; 3) Kerry voted against virtually all of the critical weapons systems being used right now to seek out and kill jihadis; 4) the ol' Marine is ticked that the Demos keep dissing American troops as "occupiers" rather than their rightful title of "liberators".
Zell wounded Kerry tonight. It was good ol' fashioned political combat. The ol' Marine was armed, and he hit his target.
Now, Kerry maybe has a legitimate purple heart. But ... does it count when it comes from a fellow Democrat?
