Think of what it says about Jimmuh Peanut Carter that he can offer far higher praise for Arafart than he did for Ronald Reagan only five months ago!

Carter, Chirac, and Kofi Annan are issuing raving tributes to the arch-terrorist. They love Arafart far far more than a Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush (who they fear, resent, and detest for opposing their one-world socialist utopia). UN lowers its flag today to half-mast to honor Arafart! These leftist morons deserve each other, but we do not deserve them. What a load of b.s.

Remember the churlish, resentful statement Jimmuh Peanut made when Ronald Reagan passed away (Carter only cited Reagan's political campaigning talents, saying nothing about his ideals, values, or governing performance). Compare the glowing eulogy Annan issues for Arafart with the very perfunctory statement he issued for Ronald Reagan (only 5 months ago), one of the great figures of all time (but not in the eyes of UN-socialists). There's no mention in the UN's brief statement for Reagan about lowering the UN flag to half-mast, of course; I'm sure they didn't do anything other than issue that brief statement.

Now Kofi Annan praised Arafart as a great peacemaker who asserted a "principle of peaceful coexistence" with Israel -- yes, this dreck really came out of the UN Secretary-General's office today! For Arafart, far from accepting any "principle of peaceful coexistence" with Israel, the "Godfather of Modern Terrorism" spent his entire adult life trashing such hopes. It's hilarious that Annan can say with any straight face, "It is tragic that [Arafart] did not live to see [this peaceful vision] fulfilled...." The only reason he did not "live to see it fulfilled" is because he spent his entire adult life making certain that it would not be fulfilled. Annan is a moron.



Kofi Annan (today):
"President Arafat will always be remembered for having, in 1988, led the Palestinians to accept the principle of peaceful coexistence between Israel and a future Palestinian state. By signing the Oslo accords in 1993 he took a giant step towards the realization of this vision."




Kofi Annan in June 2004 (for the great Ronald Reagan):

New York, 7 June 2004 - Statement attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on the death of President Ronald Reagan

The Secretary-General was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ronald Reagan, the fortieth President of the United States of America. He extends his sincere condolences to Mrs. Nancy Reagan, to the family of the former President, and to the Government and people of the United States.

President Reagan will be remembered for his leadership and resolve during a period of momentous change in world affairs, as well as for the warmth, grace and humour with which he conducted affairs of state. The positive and
optimistic attitude that he brought to ending long standing conflicts led to historic agreements on the reduction of nuclear arms as well as advances in
peace processes in different parts of the world.

ANNAN DEEPLY MOVED BY DEATH OF PRESIDENT YASSER ARAFAT

Secretary-General Kofi Annan was deeply moved to learn of the death of President Yasser Arafat.

President Arafat was one of those few leaders who could be instantly recognized by people in any walk of life all around the world.

For nearly four decades, he expressed and symbolized in his person the national aspirations of the Palestinian people.

President Arafat will always be remembered for having, in 1988, led the Palestinians to accept the principle of peaceful coexistence between Israel and a future Palestinian state. By signing the Oslo accords in 1993 he took a giant step towards the realization of this vision.

It is tragic that he did not live to see it fulfilled. Now that he has gone, both Israelis and Palestinians, and the friends of both peoples throughout the world, must make even greater efforts to bring about the peaceful realization of the Palestinian right of self-determination.

The Secretary-General’s deep-felt condolences go to his wife Suha and his young daughter Zahwa and to the Palestinian people.

When he spoke to reporters at UN headquarters, the Secretary-General said that now that President Yasser Arafat is gone, the best legacy that his people can
live by is to engage constructively and peacefully with the international community and the Israeli government and people to make his dream, a dream of two states living side by side in peace, a reality.

"I would urge that we all get to work and really press for the achievement of that goal," he said. He also noted the smooth transition of the Palestinian leadership.

Jimmy Carter is a walking, talking rectum who spouts $#it every time he opens his mouth and America will be much better off when he joins his terrorist hero as worm food! In the meantime, we should be dancing in the streets in celebration of that terrorist slim-bag`s croaking, I wonder how peanut brain Jimmy would feel about that?

Nixon took the Republicans down with him when he resigned in discrace following the Watergate scandal. This is the only reason Carter was elected. The country thought that an apparently honest, good-ol boy from the South would cleanse the Republic's honor. Little did the country know that Carter was actually a naive, inept, Leftist fool (which, by the way, he still is).

What I find astonishing, and I don't use the adjective lightly, is that Jimmuh has no idea how monstrous his praising of this baby killer is. What can he be thinking? Surely he knows that Arafat is the face of terrorism. If he doesn't -well, it boggles the mind. And this poor, pathetic terrorist enabler considers himself a Christian. Does he think that the American public believes what NPR and the broadcast news networks say about Arafat? For the life of me, I just can't figure the death wish of the gimmiecrats.

I know.........heres a grin for ya !

George and Osama decided to settle the war once and for all. They sat down and decided to settle the whole dispute with one big dog fight. They agreed that they would have five years to breed the best fighting dogs in the world and whose ever dog won would be entitled to dominate the world.


Osama and his dog handler Mohammed found the biggest, meanest Dobermans and Rottweilers in the world, then bred them with the biggest, meanest Siberian wolves they could find. From the litters, they selected the biggest and strongest puppy and trained it day and night to fight to the death. After five years, Osama and Mohammed came up with the biggest, meanest dog the world had ever seen. Its cage needed steel bars that were five inches thick and nobody could get near it.


When the day came for the dog fight, George and his dog handler Boudreaux showed up with a nine-foot-long Dachshund. It was the strangest looking dog anyone had ever seen. Boudreaux said it was a Cajun Dachshund.
Everyone felt sorry for George and Boudreaux because they knew there was no way that this poor excuse for a dog could possibly last 10 seconds with Osama's big, mean animal.


When the cages were opened up, the Dachshund slowly came out of its cage, wagged its tail, then waddled over towards Osama's dog. The Doberman/Rottweiler/Wolf snarled and leaped out of its cage, then charged the poor Dachshund. But when it got close enough to bite the Dachshund's neck, the Dachshund opened its mouth and ate Osama's dog in one bite. There was nothing left at all of the snarling beast.


Osama came up to George and Boudreaux shaking his head in disbelief. "We don't understand how this could have happened. We had our best people working for five years with the biggest, meanest Dobermans and Rottweilers, and the biggest, meanest Siberian wolves in the world. How did you do this?


"Da's easy," said Boudreaux the Cajun. "We 'ad our bess plasic surgins workin' fo' five year for to make dat alligator look like a weenie dog."

Stay safe !

Heh heh. Reminds me of that old story, where Granny jumps out of an airplane with a bottle of whiskey, a machine gun, and a bunch of knives. When she lands in the middle of town, she proceeds to shoot, stab, and beat on everybody in sight. When asked what the morale of the story is, you are told: "You don't mess with Granny when she's been drinking!"

"How could we have ever elected such a naive goober President?"

I used to feel that way about Carter.

Looking back...I see how he has always been an enabler of evil, and chaos. Carter is an ex nuclear submarine officer...degree in nuclear engineering, he is far from dumb.

Now I loathe the man...despite his apparent onset of senility, I believe this man is evil, not just naive.

YASSER ARAFAT ORDERED SIRHAN SIRHAN TO KILL ROBERT F. KENNEDY IN 1968 DUE TO HIS STRONG SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL, ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE 1967 WAR. LATER, WHEN THE U.S. REFUSED TO RELEASE SIRHAN, ARAFAT ORDERED THE BRUTAL SLAYINGS OF TWO U.S. DIPLOMATS IN KHARTOUM IN 1973.

ARE YOU GOING TO PREMIT YOUR GOVERNMENT TO SEND AN OFFICAL DIPLOMATIC DELEGATION TO THE FUNERAL OF A MAN WHO HAD A U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND U.S. DIPLOMATS MURDERED???

So Jimmah thinks that Yessir Urafart is a "powerful human symbol"! By that standard so are Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein, and Charles Manson.

As one very embarrased Georgian, I APOLIGIZE and would like to put a rag in this man's mouth! I don't know if that would keep him from putting his foot in his mouth.

Just one more thing makes me glad that I voted for Renaldus Magnus in 1980. ('84, too!)
