Drew M. over at AOSHQ put it perfectly.
To Obama and the Democrats on the Hill, Americans fall into two categories.Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 21.02.2009 @ 10:57
1.) Wards of the State
2.) Revenue streams.
The Bellagio is amazing and you should stay there at least once (cash out a CD first though). Best bang for the buck for me has always been the Rio.
Couldn't agree more on Reno, but you forgot to mention Reno also has Lt. Jim Dangle. Plus, Reno is maybe 75 minutes from Sugar Bowl or Squaw valley where (from March on) you can ski in a short sleeve T-shirt.Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 12.11.2007 @ 19:19
Holy crap that was good!
Since this post is linked on Malkin; I only ask that, for the joy such collective laughter will bring, you not delete the mouth foaming, spitttle flecked, thorazine withdrawl, lunatic-left comments your post is sure to generate.
I'm gonna go make popcorn and wait.Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 7.11.2007 @ 11:20
Rick, over in the Corner this morning Michael Ledeen has a post that damn near seems like he's answering you.
I think you make some valid points, and, in his post, he makes some of the same. Overall, however, I tend to agree with Ledeen. We've been doing what you're advocating for decades and have been met with nothing but the mullahs scorn, hostility & violence.
Don't think the mullahs don't read the Times & watch C-SPAN. I'm not trying to stifle debate, but suggesting carrot/stick, weak tea diplomicy coming from a divided America will be received with anything other than the mulllahs laughter seems rather ridiculous.
We share no common values with these people. The mullahs & their army (Qods, etc.) worship in 12th imam death cult. They care nothing for their country or the world. The jews & the infidels MUST be destroyed. We have a disire to LIVE in peace and prosperity. They desire only to murder us, and have demonstrated the will to do so directly, and through proxy (Hammas, Hezbollah, Syria, Al Qeada) for over 30 years. Iranians love American suff #6? Wearing bluejeans, adidas, and occasionally having sex before marriage doesn't make one pro-western (though I guess they'll look 'cooler' at the next Death to Israel/America rally).
War with Iran is a horrible prospect. So was war with Germany & Japan. In fact, in 1941, it seemed impossible. The stakes are just as high here. Setting their program back gives us room to maneuver, but I'm not 'pro-war' yet. I'm simply for the stick then the carrot approach. And the stick is a big one, and one we should use.
Iran imports 65% of their gasoline. While they sit on a sea of oil, they have only a handfull of refineries. Bomb those refineries (and take a few terrorist training camps on the Iran/Iraq border for good measure), cut their only gas pipeline, and blockade the Persian Gulf. Allow all the food, water & medical supplies in the world through, but block gas tankers headed for Iranian ports. This would absolutely cripple Irans military infastructure. And as much as the mullahs would cry, "look how the infidels agress against us," the Iranian people would start revolting against them pretty damn quick. THEN head to the negotiation table and start the diplodunk. At that point you can offer them gift cards to Best Buy for all I care. I expect the quid pro quo would be quite different.
Apologies for the length.Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 2.11.2007 @ 13:05
Fantastic. While I could go nuts on this topic, I'll just add two that popped into my head right off:Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 29.10.2007 @ 21:26
Robert E. Howard's "Conan."
As a dog guy, cats creep me out (with their ability to see dead people & whatnot). As far as pets, your fair lady sounds a bit like mine. As such, I advise you NEVER EVER let her see a tree frog. We started with one, and now have eight in a tank the size of a damn refrigerator.
What's worse, the neighborhood kids have gotten wind and show up (probably stoned) wanting to stare at them, or lick them...I'm afraid to ask.
I hate those frogs. Come to think of it, can I borrow one of your cats?Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 24.10.2007 @ 20:55
And, yes. If mothers ran the world there would be no war...Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 17.09.2007 @ 13:11
..unless Al Qaeda started hording Jimmy Choos.
Liberals control 90% of the MSM and 90% of academia, providing a propaganda machine Hitler & Stalin could only dream of. Liberals demand lock-step obedience, no independence, tow the line, tell us what we can say, what we can't say, police our thought, assume a constitutional "right" not to be offended (but go out of their way to offend others), tell us who we have to tolerate & who we should hate.
There's a word for all this. It's called fascism.
Don't look now muirgeo, but we're the counter culture. You're the sheep.

The only way he makes that better is if he follows it up with, "I know, because my Mom said so."Comment Posted By Lamontyoubigdummy On 16.09.2007 @ 11:42
