Posted on 12/19/2002 4:23:04 AM PST by Chairman_December_19th_Society
We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail!
Good morning!! Do not let the victims of the attacks on New York and Washington, nor the brave members of our Nation's military who have given their lives to protect our freedom, die in vain!!
December 19, 1998 - A GREAT DAY TO HAVE BEEN A REPUBLICAN!!
On that day, the GOP House ensured that Wilhelm von der Schlickmeister Blythe Klintoon would have his proper place in history by making him the first elected President ever to have been impeached and, collaterally, causing Vice Perpetrator Algore to remark that Klintoon would be remembered as "one of our greatest Presidents."
The Pravda is reporting the Administration has set an informal target of the last week in January to decide on whether to invade Iraq. The White House believes by then it will have gathered enough evidence on Iraqi malfeasence in the WMD arena to convince the UN Security Council Iraq must be dealt with once and for all.
In that regard, US intelligence has stated the Iraqi regime has created a larger and more powerful biological warfare capability, has weaponized their agents to such a degree they are highly aerosoled, and have put their labs in vans, so they will not be found by UN weapons inspectors.
And UOx42 has weighed in on Senator Lott:
"How do they think they got a majority in the South anyway?" Clinton told CNN outside a business luncheon he was attending. "I think what they are really upset about is that he made public their strategy."
He added: "They try to suppress black voting, they ran on the Confederate flag in Georgia and South Carolina, and from top to bottom the Republicans supported it." [Sourced to CNN]
Maybe the GOP should remind the former cretin of the White House there are many witnesses to him using the "N" word frequently while he was governor of Arkansas: Why Clinton Is MIA on the Lott Race Flap.
Meanwhile, Delighted Democrats Sharpen Anti-white Agenda
For AMERICA - The Right Way, I remain yours in the Cause, the Chairman.
Neets will handle the duty from December 26 through 30.
Sparta will get us going on December 31 and January 1. (He's new so we should all make sure we give him the proper ATRW welcome!
I am dead certain this is a plan hatched by scum and scumette, and I hope the hammer comes down on him soon.
Back after a few days of R & R and ready to tackle another day!
You know, I think the RATs have overplayed their hand on Lott. They may get just what they've been harping on, a new majority leader. What they don't want however is a new majority leader, they wanted a damaged, weakened Lott, who they could then "blackmail" into following their liberal agenda (even more than usual). They now face the possibility of the Republicans electing a new Majority leader who will be more than capable and happy to smack these liberal pukes around.
And as for trying to "force" Lott out of the Senate completly in the hopes our RAT Gov could put a RAT in his place....they don't want to tread that road either, because then all of their dirty laundry will start getting more airing than it has presently (at least it will on those very few reputable news outlets), so I really don't see that happening. Look at some of the folks coming to Lotts defense, i.e. jessie "extortion" jackson for one thinks Lott has apologized and should not step down (wink, wink)
The RATs should be careful what they ask and whine for...they might just get it - and then they'll have a reason to whine!!!
MM, are you sleeping well in your new home?
AMERICAS WAR ON TERROR Day 465
The news as reported in The Washington Times:
[Note All links go to The Washington Times website.]
1. The United States indicated there are troubling gaps in the Iraqi arms declaration.
[It is really amazing it took them 12,000 pages to say we have no weapons of mass destruction; in other words, lie.]
2. Senator Lott says he wont give up and will fight to retain his leadership position.
[I think it is time for our side to shut up. It is now beginning to appear that the GOP is groveling.]
3. The Pentagon is planning on building a second missile interceptor site, either on the East Coast or in Europe, to counter the possibility of missiles from the Mideast.
4. Al Qaeda has established cells in Canada with the capability and conviction to attack anywhere in North America.
[I do think the Canadians need to do a little more in the War on Terror.]
5. Author Oriana Fallaci has written a tome that refers to Islam as a blight on the world.
[Oh, thats going to endear her to a lot of folks.]
6. Seems Malvo, the 17-year-old accomplice to the Beltway Sniper, isnt happy with the vegetarian loaf he is receiving in jail and wants a custom meal; Fairfax county says if he doesnt like the vegetable loaf, he can eat the same non-vegetarian meal as the other inmates.
[Woo hoo!!!!! Three cheers for the Fairfax sheriff!!! Outstanding!!!]
7. The Salvation Army has moved their kettles and bell ringers to cyberspace.
[Ho, ho, ho.]
We shall not rest until we have cut a swath 60-miles wide through the entire left - taking all that is before us with us as we go. We shall leave nothing to the enemy that may be of value to him. We shall show him that he may count on nothing and will be able to keep nothing, not his spirit, not his soul, not that upon which he shall feed. We shall not cease until the moment we have rent through their entire land and have arrived at the sea, with our glorious victory upon us.
Now you have the info, go support the United States of America!!!
What ever happenned to bread and water? I guess that would 'overly harsh and cruel?'
"Mr. Malvo's lawyers filed a complaint in November charging that the juvenile's placement in an adult detention center, as well as the condition of his cell, were "overly harsh and cruel." I can't understand what kind of person could be a defense attorney sometimes.....
This woman fabricated a brother who was "killed" in the 911 attacks, and collected $64,000 from the Red Cross and various relief organizations.
I have an unease about pre-emptive seizure, it is too easy to abuse, and there are reports that it has been.
That said, I have to weigh in on the 10th Amendment argument. The Amendment basically says that if it ain't in the Constitution, then the function is reserved to the states and the people.
I will have to offer there are two distinct places in the Constitution that cover the WOD quite well. The commerce clause, and the common defence clause.
The notion the matter is the province of the several states would mean the problem is located solely within the states. The moment the material begins to transgress borders of more than a couple of states, then the issue becomes one of interstate commerce, and that is clearly under the province of Congress in Article I.
Similarly, when the material transgresses the borders of the country, the common defence clause kicks in if the item is considered a threat to the United States.
Now, that could be the matter of some debate, and prior to September 11, 2001, an argument could be made that it was not a National Defense issue, but rather something of a criminal nature.
Since that fateful day, however, we have come to learn that one of the funding sources for Al Qa'eda and other terrorist organizations is from the sale of coccaine and other illegal substances (heroin way up on the list there). We are at war against terrorist organizations of global reach, so by extension if they are getting some of their funding from "drug money," then it becomes a matter of National Security import, thus satisfying the common defense clause.
These form, in my mind, the two fundamentals on which the Federal Government can indeed involve themselves in the WOD. There is a third, somewhat more tenuous but still cogent point to be made, however, and it has to do with who is paying the bill.
Regardless of whether drug adiction leads to more crime (I tend to think it does, but there are arguments on the other side that say these people are too "bombed" to coherently put together such an operation, so I'll leave that alone), there is a cost to society that is borne because people adicted to drugs do not generally perform functions that add to the value of society (call it "work"), but rather have to receive the generousity of society (call it "welfare").
The welfare that is granted to drug users comes in many forms - unemployment checks, AFDC, WIC, methodone clinics, emergency hospital treatment performed gratis, clean up of our parks and common areas, and so on. Who pays for these? The taxpayer. And it is not just the taxpayers of the several states as citizens of states, but also in their capacity as taxpayers to the United States of America. I, for one, believe that if the US Government is paying the bill, then it ought to use all legal means at its disposal to ensure it is reducing the amount it has to pay.
But the fact it is paying the bill at all produces an interesting conundrum. Proponents of drug legalization argue on the state's rights issue, among other points, yet often (don't know whether you're in that crowd, you didn't say) insist the Federal Government provide money for drug treatment and education. You can't have it both ways. If the problem is a state problem, then it is inappropriate for the Federal Government to be involved in paying out money. OTOH, if the Federal Government is paying out money and that is acceptable, then the threshold has already been crossed - Federal involvement is all right.
Anyhow, that's my opinion.
I can agree with that. Welfare should be a societal function. Not a government function. For too many years people have confused government with society.
Governments are good a building big things, and breaking big things. Government is the wrong tool to use to provide assistance to the truly needy. Churches are better at that function.
Welcome to ATRW, Sparta!
Fox just showed some F-18s from the George Washington returning home. Lump in the throat time. God bless the men that fly and fight.
Think about it, Sweetie. And take care!

1. Typed reply to Pippin and hit "post reply." Post didn't show up.
2. Thhinking that maybe I was hitting the wrong button, I hit reload button on the thread, and no post showed up.
3. Thinking that perhaps I had not hit the "post reply" button, I went to "My comments" to see if there was a post #41 listed from me to Pippin. No post showed in the list, even whenI hit the reload.
4. So then I went back to the thread to post my reply to Pippin, and there it was!
Boy, talk about a Twilight Zone moment!
Take care of yourself, Sister!
How have you been lately?
"We are not worried because there is nothing THEY CAN PIN ON US......"
Odd choice of words...
