Congrats to the BoSox!!

The Boston Red Sox swept their way to another World Series title last night. Congrats to Boston - the greatest sports town in America, after Detroit. Their fans are hard core and they LOVE their baseball team - cheers.

And on another sports note, check out what happens to players when they try to hit Pavel Datsyuk. (you definitely want to see that last slow motion bit at the end of the video)

Liberal Kook of the Week

It's always so hard to narrow them down...

This week's honors go to "Dingy Harry" for this idiotic statement:

“One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming.”

In all seriousness, California is experiencing some of the worst wildfires ever; our thoughts and prayers are with all those who have lost or been forced to evacuate their homes out there.

Friday Frivolity

I can't help slipping in some Potter news every now and then... Remember those moms in Atlanta or wherever trying to ban Harry Potter books because they promoted witchcraft, anti-Christian whatever?? In this article, JK discusses how Christian themes influenced the entire series.

In other news... Ann Coulter has a great column this week about hoax racism. Love her last line:

Liberals love nothing more than these constant self-righteous-athons -- as if they would ever have the courage to stand up for any cause not universally supported by everyone around them.

For the hockey fans out there (all four of you), here's a good read about the sport's top 10 milestones and records.

And can't forget Rush Limbaugh's letter from "Dingy Harry" and other Dems condeming him (a private American citizen) for calling (his right to free speech) a phony soldier a phony soldier (the truth). It's final eBay bid was $2,100,100 - all of which will be donated to the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation. (Rush is also going to match that amount to the charity)

Finally, here's a great story - Reason 52,304 why Americans like their guns!

Happy Friday!!!

More Shady Fundraising for Boss Clinton

How long are we going to let her get away with this stuff? You know it must be bad if even the LA Times is reporting it...

All three locations, along with scores of others scattered throughout some of the poorest Chinese neighborhoods in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, have been swept by an extraordinary impulse to shower money on one particular presidential candidate -- Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Dishwashers, waiters and others whose jobs and dilapidated home addresses seem to make them unpromising targets for political fundraisers are pouring $1,000 and $2,000 contributions into Clinton's campaign treasury. In April, a single fundraiser in an area long known for its gritty urban poverty yielded a whopping $380,000.

Missing people...

The tenement at 44 Henry St. was listed in Clinton's campaign reports as the home of Shu Fang Li, who reportedly gave $1,000.

A tenant living in the apartment listed as Li's address said through a translator that she had not heard of him, although she had lived there for the last 10 years.

A man named Liang Zheng was listed as having contributed $1,000. The address given was a large apartment building on East 194th Street in the Bronx, but no one by that name could be located there.

Salespeople at a store on Canal Street were similarly baffled when asked about Shih Kan Chang, listed as working there and having given $1,000...Employees said they had not heard of Chang.

Another listed donor, Yi Min Liu, said he did not make the $1,000 contribution in April that was reported in his name. He said he attended a banquet for Clinton but did not give her money.

In addition to all of the fradulant donations, she does have some real supporters among the poor Chinese communities of NY. Many of them are illegal residents who want citizenship and their families brought over so they can be reunited. Using immigrants who can barely speak English to build your political base is hardly new --as the article points out with reminders of old school NY political machines like Boss Tweed. Having relationships with "associations" (nevermind that many of them have criminal pasts) that compel these new immigrants to donate money to Boss Clinton is just part of the old game.

Quote(s) of the Week

You have to love this man - I really wish our recently emasculated president were saying stuff like this instead of congratulating the pinko-crusader.

From Czech president, Vaclav Klaus, reacting to Algore's recent Nobel "peace" prize win:

"The relationship between his activities and world peace is unclear and indistinct," the statement said. "It rather seems that Gore's doubting of basic cornerstones of the current civilization does not contribute to peace."

Klaus said in a recent speech that environmentalists' efforts to halt global warming "fatally endanger our freedom and prosperity."

In a newspaper interview earlier this year, Klaus said that only Al Gore, and not a sane person, would say that mankind is ruining the planet.

More quotes:

"So now 'Algore' will join Yasir Arafat among the list of noble Nobel peace laureates," Rush Limbaugh said with much sarcasm at the top of his broadcast today. The Norwegian committee, Limbaugh said, has "rendered themselves a pure, 100 percent joke."

Citing Arafat, the former Palestinian leader, and former President Jimmy Carter's award in 2002, Limbaugh added that "The Nobel committee has lost all credibility since long before they awarded this award to 'Algore.'"

"I confess, I have been in a bit of a funk after learning of the Gore/Nobel news," conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham said in an e-mail. "I really thought Cindy Sheehan should have been recognized."

Of course we all know that creating an alarmist, highly discredited movie about global warming has done far more for world peace than, say, taking out brutal dictators, ending facsism, communism, etc., but Rush still had this to say:

"If there has ever been an engine of peace, it’s the United States military," Limbaugh said, surely to the delight of his audience. (damned straight, Mr. Politico)

SW States Need to Deal

Here in Michigan we really like our lakes. In fact, one of the reasons we like living here is for the beauty and recreational opportunities the lakes afford us. That, and we have some of the best drinking water in the country. ("These lakes are of sweet water" - Antoine Cadillac)

If you want to move down to a southwestern state for the sun and the dry heat and the warm weather, don't forget you moved to a DESERT. Water isn't plentiful in a DESERT. So maybe you shouldn't have a grass lawn...

Here's one issue I'm actually agreeing with environmentalists on - NM Gov. Bill Richardson thinks "northern states" should "share" their water. Why? So he can build bigger cities down there that we will sustain until our lakes go dry?? The notion is so ridiculous, and so typical Democrat-Socialist (everyone share! no one should have more than anyone else!).

I like some of the comments from my fellow New Fallujans - esp. the first from "marytee":

We will ship water out there when they start shipping sunshine back here...

Go Stanford

I guess people are so blase about upsets in college football, they aren't making as big of a deal about USC's fall from grace this Saturday. But I sure will here!!!

Consider the stats and tell me this wasn't a bigger upset than the I-AA champions beating Michigan earlier this year:

How does a Stanford team that lost by 38 points the week before and coughed up 141 points in three Pacific-10 wipeouts barge into the L.A. Coliseum and give Southern California its first home defeat in six years?

How can the Cardinal, because the No.1 quarterback had a seizure, start a backup with three college passes to his name -- Tavita Pritchard -- and watch him turn into John Elway?

Stanford might play with the big guys, but the Cardinal still were 1-11.

In other good news - Michigan won (yea! Though I expected a bigger margin over Eastern), Michigan State lost (yea! To Northwestern in OT), and Notre Dame even managed to scrape by their first win of the season, beating another Cali team (yea!). Great weekend for college ball!

Pull up your pants and come back to work

Yep, old Sandy Berger has joined Hillary's campaign. He's obviously demonstrated the highest loyalty to the Clintons, willingly breaking the law for them.

I'm just glad that he's done serving his time... oh, wait, he didn't get in any trouble for those stolen, destroyed classified documents, did he? There wasn't mass media outrage? No special congressional inquest? Oh, come on, at least there was a congressional resolution condemning him, right? I mean, I know what he did wasn't as bad as Rush Limbaugh calling a lying, fake who never made it out of bootcamp and falsely claimed to commit atrocities in Iraq a "phony soldier." But surely there was at least a resolution, right?

CNN Rebel

Who knew? There is a rebel in their midst, a meteorologist who isn't toting the party line on global warming. He's not even a fan of Algore's movie!

Now what was Hillary Burning??

"Suspicous fires" in Senate women's restrooms...
