COLLECTIVE MADNESS


“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Mankind in League with the Devil

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Two car bombs targeting day laborers looking for work exploded within seconds of each other Tuesday on a main square in central Baghdad, killing at least 57 people and wounding more than 150, police said.

The coordinated attack in Tayaran Square involved a suicide attacker who drove up to the day laborers pretending to want to hire them, then set off his explosives as they got into his minibus, Lt. Bilal Ali said. At virtually the same time — 7 a.m. — a bomb exploded in a car parked some 30 yards away.



What kind of people carry out this kind of insanity. I would call them animals but that's an insult to the animal world. No, this is an evil deed. Which is the realm of man...and the devil.

  3. "..field this WHOLE time,"

    It's not only painful to read me, it hurts to watch me type too, or so i've been told.

  5. Don't insult the devil like that. The worst the the bible reports Satan ever doing was flattening a house and killing Job's family. Humans flattened two towers in New York and killed almost 3,000 people.

  6. So Koffi Annan is gone and for his final performance Mr. Step-n-Fetch-It lambasts the USA as the worlds biggest problem.
    One of his lines excoriated the US as a superpower saying that one cannot dominate the world and remain safe or some such claptrap.
    Well the fact of the matter is we worked damn hard to avoid a communist takeover of the world all through the Cold War which was a time when school children learned to duck and cover under their desks in case of an atomic attack. In saving the world from becoming Soviet chattel, we worked longer hours, produced more per unit of energy used, and allowed our allies to (unfortunately) become impotent socialist states by allowing us to shoulder the burden of their defense.
    Well Mocha Annan we just happen to prevail and are now the only superpower. We do not seek world domination so just head on back to the Dark Continent and catch a good case of ebola, we don't need you in the USA, boy.

  10. Kofi Sez,

    Dear Saddam,

    I am feeling so great! I have totally internalized all the wonderful things you’ve taught over the years, via your example in governance!
    I am just so excited!

  11. "It was Thermopylae. It was the Alamo. It was like nothing that has happened before in human history.

    Much of the power of United 93 is the knowledge that while people cannot realistically imagine themselves with the Spartans at Thermopylae or the Texans at the Alamo, just about everyone has flown in an air liner. Everyone seeing this film can imagine themselves among those brave but doomed passengers, fighting with the courage of desperation for the right to get home alive."*

    If you watch it again or for the first time you know our cause is just. And if we haven't executed each task on the project timeline without misstep does not alter what we are engaged in today.

    What rational human wants to eat at a sushi bar contaninated with Poloniun 210 of something more unimaginable? If we fight them over there is not a guarantee that catastrophy will not occur here, but we must act there now with more might than we have shown to date.
    Obliterating large parts of their world will give them pause. We are morally obligated to destroy what they have brought from the beastial depths of mankind front and center to this world. Civilization cannot abide terrorism and only the United States has the power to remediate this atavistic tragedy.

  12. A Professor was giving a lecture on "Involuntary Muscular
    Contractions" to his first year medical students.
    Realizing that this was not the most riveting subject, the
    Professor decided to lighten the mood slightly.
    He pointed to a young woman in the front row and said, "Do you know what
    your ass hole is doing while you're having an orgasm?"
    She replied, "Probably deer hunting with his buddies."

    If you don't think Satan is fully engaged in this mess, go read Gen. 3. He is in his element.

  15. There are many, many fight to the death scenarios idealized in "Western" history.
    From the Spartans at Thermopylae to Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and William Barret Travis .

    Even the "Charge of the Light Brigade" is held to proof of the Cavalry's courage.

    To fight and die for what one believes true, there is a long tradition. To not understand what motivates the "Other", even longer.

    Pay off the Viking, until with time, he invades and takes your lands. The Celts never having visited Denmark did not understand that eventually those Danes would not go home. The Isles being a nicer place to live.

    I did read Genesis 3. Perhaps you could specify what he did wrong.

    A War on Terror means we're gonna shut down all roller coasters and scary movies. No more haunted houses for trick or treat. The speed limit goes to 45 MPH everywhere.
