Petition to Stop Wikipedia Sexual Exploitation

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=122568014434577&ref=mf

This is a petition to get Wikipedia to adopt the minimum of standards to ensure that people are protected. There are no current regulations on explicit images that protect the rights of those in the images or those under 18, and this is a serious problem.

Doubts Raised on Magazine’s ‘Baghdad Diarist’
By LOUISE STORY

Just who is the “Baghdad Diarist”?

It is a question that many people are asking The New Republic, the Washington political magazine that has been running articles attributed to an American soldier in Baghdad.

The author, who used the pen name Scott Thomas, has written three articles for the magazine since February, describing gruesome incidents in Iraq. Last week, The Weekly Standard questioned the veracity of the New Republic articles and invited readers with knowledge about the military or Baghdad to comment.

Frauds

You have to love when people who keep criticizing and attacking you turn out to be a bunch of phonies.

Outsourcing the Picket Line
Carpenters Union Hires Homeless to Stage Protests

By Keith L. Alexander
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, July 24, 2007; A01

The picketers marching in a circle in front of a downtown Washington office building chanting about low wages do not seem fully focused on their message.

Many have arrived with large suitcases or bags holding their belongings, which they keep in sight. Several are smoking cigarettes. One works a crossword puzzle. Another bangs a tambourine, while several drum on large white buckets. Some of the men walking the line call out to passing women, "Hey, baby." A few picketers gyrate and dance while chanting: "What do we want? Fair wages. When do we want them? Now."

Fred Thompson

So I was watching Leno tonight and Fred Thompson came on. I thought it was interesting, because he basically said he was running without actually saying it.

I think he would do well. I would honestly like him running with Guiliani as his VP. I think they would make a good combination, and there would be nothing to fear about Guiliani's "values" if he is only VP. Both would also balance each other out nicely.

Congress Becomes Worthless

http://www.galluppoll.com/content/default.aspx?ci=26914

Congress's Approval rating is 7 points below Bush. All of this fuss Congress is making about Karl Rove and the Attorney General are making people dissatisfied in the Middle and on the Right. The Left is dissatisfied with the fact that the war is still happening. Looks like Pelosi is about to erode any power she has if she keeps it up.

Iraqis: life is getting better
Marie Colvin

MOST Iraqis believe life is better for them now than it was under Saddam Hussein, according to a British opinion poll published today.

The survey of more than 5,000 Iraqis found the majority optimistic despite their suffering in sectarian violence since the American-led invasion four years ago this week.Read more...Collapse )

I Don't Need Another Mother, One Is Just Fine

An Editorial Response, by me.

This is Hillary's new campaign:

"The nation is in deep need for a mother figure who will lead the people out of a violent world and back into caring for the poor and the disabled, mostly caring for our children, our future."

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/celebrity/la-et-cause16feb16,1,5549041.story?ctrack=1&cset=true


My Response:

Hillary wants to be a mother figure? Who the hell said that we needed a mother figure?

What would that even mean? Shes going to hug us and kiss our booboos and tell us its okay? Is she going to make us soup when we have a sickness and lie to us about how the world works to make us feel better? Is she going to be condescending and say "there there, I know best."

The US needs a leader. A leader does not comfort us. A leader leads us to success. A leader does not tell us "it will be alright." A leader fixes problems without coddling.
