Where’s Borat?

And why didn’t he break the story of politics and corruption in Kazakhstan?  Has Bill Clinton registered as a foreign agent?  Billy Carter did so, why not Bill?

We Love Snow

Everyone should get snow.  Occasionally some that do not normally get a lot do.  Mr. Fu likes the snowman!

Why The Hell Are They Whining?

Democrats in the Senate are whining that Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey is being fuzzy on the issue of the legality of waterboarding. If they are so all fired concerned about whether waterboarding is legal or not, why don’t they just pass a law making it legal or illegal? They are the freakin’ law makers! Why are they trying to rake some Executive Branch schlub over the coals about the legalty of the technique when they are the ones that can just write a law?

Some Object To Their Dhimmi Status

Gays are being oppressed in Europe? You would think that such a bastion of tolerance would be the least likely to harbor gay bashers. But it seems that tolerance may be able to go too far, especially in Europe, because Muslim thugs are the source of the gay bashing.

Mr. Bawer’s article title paraphrases Pastor Martin Niemöller‘s poem:

Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Kommunist.

Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.

Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten,
habe ich nicht protestiert;
ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.

Als sie die Juden holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Jude.

Als sie mich holten,
gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.

It sort of reminds Mr. Fu of Rush Limbaugh’s old method of picking NFL winners based on the political correctness of the team mascots. When it was the Cowboys versus the Dolphins, the Dolphins are the clear winners. But things were always amusing when it was the Dolphins versus the Buffalos. In this case which of the two minority groups do the Leftists pull for? Looks like the Muslim minority is winning and the gays are losing.

It is wrong that anyone is physically assaulted, or even verbally abused, because of their chosen lifestyle. But the European Muslims that chose a lifestyle of violence should be roundly condemned, and rounded up as the criminals they are. This is terrorism on a small scale. And where is the talk of hate crime in this situation?

Perhaps these Muslim thugs can pick on Leftists all they want, but when they come for the red necks, they will find some infidels have teeth, claws, and lots of firearms.

UPDATE: Bill Quick has an angle on the article.

Experience You Just Can’t Buy

Or perhaps you can.  Ridiculous line of the day:

“Clinton has the experience needed to step into the Oval Office at this critical time.”

That is about all her experience qualifies her to do, to physically step into the Oval Office, because she like, actually lived in the White House at one time.  But don’t you think that after a dozen times or so of actually stepping into the Oval Office that Obama could do it all by himself too?

Oh, get a job, hippie.

Here’s An Idea

Okay, they are refitting mothballed F-4 Phantoms (still one of Mr. Fu’s favorite aircraft) as remote controlled drones.  But then they added a bit where the thing shoots an air-to-surface missile as part of an exercise.  Why not re-fit a whole bunch of these, throw in the broken F-15’s that they are probably going to scrap, and make some high powered Wild Weasel UAV’s?  If we have junked this stuff anyway, can refurbish them for cheap, and we can get Iran or whoever to light off a bunch of SAMs at them, they might be really cost effective money wasters for our enemies.  Heck, use them as part of a flight of aircraft in with some F-22’s.  The bandits think they can pounce on a lone aircraft, and BAM instant stealth aircraft victims!

Groveling To All The Wrong Things

This looks like perfect clothing for the budding Leftist (possibly NSFW?).  To Mr. Fu it appears that they are kowtowing to the Fair Trade, Sustainable, and the Organic movements.  Why is it that Leftists always prostrate themselves to everything but whom is deserving of total respect?

Go For It

Alaska (663,267 square miles) is slightly larger than the combinated land area of the next three largest states: Texas (268,581 sq. mi.), California (163,696 sq. mi.), and Montana (147,042) sq. mi.; plus Idaho (83,570 sq. mi.) (those total 662, 889 sq. mi., look at the dang picture in the link!). So why is anyone bitching about drilling on 2,000 acres of land in the most forsaken Alaskan wilderness area in the United States of America?

Mr. Fu is amused at some of the data presented here:

Government geologists say ANWR could hold up to 16 billion barrels of recoverable oil. That’s 30 years’ of imports from Saudi Arabia. Turned into gasoline, it would power California’s vehicle fleet for 50 years, and hybrid and fuel cell cars would stretch the oil even further. ANWR’s natural gas could fuel California’s electrical generating plants for years.

At $50 a barrel, ANWR could save the US from having to import $800 billion worth of foreign oil, create up to 700,000 American jobs, and generate hundreds of billions in royalties and taxes.


In Wisconsin, anti-oil groups support building 133 gigantic Cuisinarts on 32,000 acres (16 times the ANWR operations area) near Horicon Marsh. This magnificent wetland is home to millions of geese, ducks and other migratory birds, and just miles from an abandoned mine that houses 140,000 bats. At 390 feet in height, the turbines tower over the Statue of Liberty (305 feet), US capitol (287 feet) and Arctic oil production facilities (50 feet).

Heh, gigantic Cuisinarts indeed!

Just announcing the USA would start drilling in ANWR and off shore would cause oil prices to plummet.  All those that argued that buying oil was supporting terrorism should be in favor of domestic drilling.  Of course they are not in favor of such measures, just as they are not that concerned about really stopping terrorists.

Listen Up Republicans!

Mr. Fu has been saying this, Rush has been saying it and said it again today:

Rush issued a warning about Huckabee and McCain: “I’m here to tell you, if either of these two guys get the nomination, it’s going to destroy the Republican Party, it’s going to change it forever, be the end of it. A lot of people aren’t going to vote. You watch.”

Damn straight! Wake up people, there are too many one issue voters that cannot support most of the field of Republican candidates. Do the research yourself and find out which candidate is the real conservative. Better vote for him quick or get used to the idea of President Clinton or President Obama….
