Kjsendur Bush lklegri til a jst af gerskunum og ranghugmyndum, lka verr upplstir, samkvmt nrri rannskn

Rarely is the question asked: Is our children learning.jpg

ettagti skrt margt...

Lohses study, backed by SCSU Psychology professor Jaak Rakfeldt and statistician Misty Ginacola, found a correlation between the severity of a persons psychosis and their preferences for president: The more psychotic the voter, the more likely they were to vote for Bush.
Our study shows that psychotic patients prefer an authoritative leader, Lohse says. If your world is very mixed up, theres something very comforting about someone telling you, This is how its going to be.

Samkvmt knnuninni voru gesjklingar sem kusu Bush lka verr upplstir en gesjklingar sem kusu Kerry:

Bush supporters had significantly less knowledge about current issues, government and politics than those who supported Kerry, the study says.

Samskonar niurstur hafa fengist eldri knnunum - t.d. voru kjsendur sem just af rum og ranghugmyndum hrifnari af Nixon kosningunum 1972, en v tilfelli er sennilega rtt a segja a lkur ski lkan heim?

Undanfarin r hefur Bill O'Reilly bi til "frttir" fyrir sjnvarps og tvarpstti sna me v a sa sig yfir v a sumar verslunarkejur skuli voga sr a ska flki "happy holidays" frekar en "merry christmas".

Bush sleppur naumlega vi a f kjaftshgg fr Jim Webb!

Webb með hnefann á lofti.jpg

Jim Webb er upphalds ldungadeildaringmaur minn! Eftir kosningarnar var Webb tnefndur af frttaskrendum "haldssamur" demokrati, og tti a vera helsta snnun ess a demokrataflokkurinn hefi unni kosningarnar me v a tefla fram haldssmum frambjendum. Svo kom Webb t r skpnum Wall Street Journal me v a skrifa grein undir titlinum "Stttabartta" ar sem hannkallai bandarska alu, verkamenn og bndur, til vopna barttunni gegn rttltri skiptingu aufa.

En Webb er ekki bara einhverskonar varhugaverur raulii - hann er lka a skapstr a hann arf a taka sr llum til a lenda ekki i slagsmlum vi forsetann!!

Forsaga mlsins er s a Bush bau llum njum ingmnnum htlega mttku Hvta hsinu, og af einskrri kurteisi spuri forsetinn Webb hvernig syni ess sarnefnda lii rak. Webb er fyrrverandi landgngulii og sonur hans er lka landgnguliinu og er rak a reyna a komast hj v a vera sprengdur loft upp borgarastri raka, nei, g meina "The ongoing scuffle between sectarian groups". Webb lkai ekki tnninn rdd forsetans, og forsetinn var snugur:

Bush asked Webb how his son, a Marine lance corporal serving in Iraq, was doing.

Webb responded that he really wanted to see his son brought back home, said a person who heard about the exchange from Webb.

I didnt ask you that, I asked how hes doing, Bush retorted, according to the source.

Webb confessed that he was so angered by this that he was tempted to slug the commander-in-chief, reported the source, but of course didnt. Its safe to say, however, that Bush and Webb wont be taking any overseas trips together anytime soon.

Jim did have a conversation with Bush at that dinner, said Webbs spokeswoman Kristian Denny Todd. Basically, he asked about Jims son, Jim expressed the fact that he wanted to have him home. Todd did not want to escalate matters by commenting on Bushs response, saying, It was a private conversation.

A White House spokeswoman declined to give Bushs version of the conversation.

essi frsgn er r The Hill- sem yfirliett er me langsamlega skemmtilegustu lsingarnar bandarsku nglfi. The Washington Post er me nnast smu tgfu af samskiptum eirra Bush og Webb, sleppir v a Webb hafi vilja kla Bush, en stafestir a forsetinn virist hafa fyrrst vi egar Webb lt ljs hyggjur af lfi og limum sonar sns! Mean dtur Bush eru Argentnu, svo miklu partstui a sendir Bandarkjanna Buenos Aires hefur bei r vinsamlegast a ra sig niur, er sonur Webb rak. Washington Postbtir vi a Webb neiti a lta taka ljsmyndir af sr og forsetanum saman:

How's your boy?" Bush asked, referring to Webb's son, a Marine serving in Iraq.

"I'd like to get them out of Iraq, Mr. President," Webb responded, echoing a campaign theme.

"That's not what I asked you," Bush said. "How's your boy?"

"That's between me and my boy, Mr. President," Webb said coldly, ending the conversation on the State Floor of the East Wing of the White House...

"I'm not particularly interested in having a picture of me and George W. Bush on my wall," Webb said in an interview yesterday in which he confirmed the exchange between him and Bush. "No offense to the institution of the presidency." ...

In the days after the election, Webb's Democratic colleagues on Capitol Hill went out of their way to make nice with Bush and be seen by his side. ... Not Webb, who said he tried to avoid a confrontation with Bush at the White House reception but did not shy away from one when the president approached.

The White House declined to discuss the encounter.

Webb er nefnilega alvru karlmenni - ekki ykjustukreki eins og Macaca Allen og George W. Bush, fertugasti og riji forseti Bandarkjanna...

Newt Gingrich vill takmarka mlfrelsi Bandarkjunum

Gingrich leiddi repúblíkanaflokkinn til sigurs 1994 sem fánaberi takmarðara ríkisafskifta en hefur skift um skoðun síðan þá.jpg

Repblkaninn Newt Gingrich, sem hefur veri a gla vi a bja sig fram til forseta ri 2008 lsti v yfir grkvld a hugsanlega yrfti a endurskoa mlfrelsi Bandarkjunum:

Gingrich, speaking at a Manchester awards banquet, said a "different set of rules" may be needed to reduce terrorists' ability to use the Internet and free speech to recruit and get out their message.

"We need to get ahead of the curve before we actually lose a city, which I think could happen in the next decade," said Gingrich, a Republican who helped engineer the GOP's takeover of Congress in 1994.

etta eru mjg athyglisverar vangaveltur, fyrir nokkrurra hluta sakir. fyrsta lagi er a vissulega rtt a bandarkjamenn gtu lent v a "lose a city... in the next decade" og a er svo sannarlega rtt aalrkisstjrnin eigi a gera allt sem hennar valdi stendur til a koma veg fyrir a strborgir tapist og bar eirra drepist ea hrekist fltta og komist ekki heim til sn, heimili almennings og eigur su eyilagar og flk urfi a hafast vi flttamannabum ea rttaleikvngum? Reynslan hefur snt a heilu strborgirnar geta lagst rst feinum dgum og a Bandarkjastjrn, hjlparsveitir og herinn eru hreint ekki ngu vel undir a bin a takast vi slkar katastrfur, sama hversu miki "heck of a job" allir su a gera...

En a er auvita frleitt a frelsispostular bor vi Newt Gingrich telji a a urfi a styrkja nausynlega innvii samflagsins, ea ra hfa menn til ess a stjrna rkisstofnunum bor vi FEMA. Nei. Slkt telst sennilega einhverskonar bolsvismi, og kostar skattpeninga?Oghvernig hyggst Gingrich vernda borgarana?N, me v askera mlfrelsi! annig hugsar essifnaberi frelsisins!Koma tvennskonar reglum um mlfrelsi - sumir megi segja sumt, og arir megi ekki segja anna. Um mlfrelsi "hryjuverkamanna" skuli gilda "a different set of rules". Hvernig tli eigi a kvea hverjir su hryjuverkamenn og hverjir ekki? Kannski arf a stofna til ess srstaka rkisskrifstofu, mannaa skriffinnum me vtk vld til ess a rannsaka breytta borgara og skoanir eirra til a skera r um hver m f a segja hva?

huga "frelsispostula" bor vi Newt Gingrich er a byggilega g skriffinska - mean almannajnusta er vond skriffinnska. Vi urfum semsagt bara a ttast "stra brur" egar hann er a safna skttum ea tdeila "handouts", en ekki egar hann er a njsna um okkur og kvea hverjir fi a njta fullra mannrttinda og hverjir ekki?

Grundvallaratrii "faith based" utanrkispltk forsetans og stuningsmanna hans virist nefnliega vera a afneita raunveruleikanum.

The news from Iraq is becoming grimmer every day. Over the long holiday weekend bombings killed more than 200 people in a Shiite neighborhood in Baghdad. And six Sunni men were doused with kerosene and burned alive. Shiite muslims are the majority, but Sunnis like Saddam Hussein ruled that country until the war. Now, the battle between Shiites and Sunnis has created a civil war in Iraq. Beginning this morning, MSNBC will refer to the fighting in Iraq as a civil war a phrase the White House continues to resist. But after careful thought, MSNBC and NBC News decided over the weekend, the terminology is appropriate, as armed militarized factions fight for their own political agendas. Well have a lots more on the situation in Iraq and the decision to use the phrase, civil war.

Bandarsk dagbl hafa glt vi hugtaki borgarastr nokkurn tma - en um helgina fjallai LA Times um "Iraq's Civil War" frekar en a tala um a standi "stefndi a vera" ea "lktist" ea eitthva lka loi.

g skil reyndar ekki af hverju Bush og Repblkanaflokkurinn tekur v ekki fegins hendi a bandarkjaher rak s a fst vi borgarastri - frekar en einhverskonar "insurgency" ea "sectarian violence". a hltur a vera auveldara a halda v fram a upplausnarstandi s rkum sjlfum a kenna - eir su j uppteknir vi sitt eigi borgarastr, sem komi veru Bandarkjahers sjlfu sr lti vi.

The burger company says owning the 'intellectual property rights' would help its hot deli sandwiches look and taste the same at all of its restaurants.It also wants to cut down on the time needed to put together a sandwich, thought to have been dreamt up by the Earl of Sandwich in 1762.

The 55-page patent, which has been filed in the US and Europe, covers the 'simultaneous toasting of a bread component'. Garnishes of lettuce, onions and tomatoes, as well as salt, pepper and ketchup, are inserted into a cavity in a 'sandwich delivery tool'.

The 'bread component' is placed over the cavity and the assembly tool is inverted to tip out the contents. Finally, the filling is placed in the 'bread component'. It explains: 'Often the sandwich filling is the source of the name of the sandwich; for example, ham sandwich.'

While the political debate over global warming continues, top executives at many of the nations largest energy companies have accepted the scientific consensus about climate change and see federal regulation to cut greenhouse gas emissions as inevitable.
The Democratic takeover of Congress makes it more likely that the federal government will attempt to regulate emissions. The companies have been hiring new lobbyists who they hope can help fashion a national approach that would avert a patchwork of state plans now in the works. They are also working to change some company practices in anticipation of the regulation.

We have to deal with greenhouse gases, John Hofmeister, president of Shell Oil Co., said in a recent speech at the National Press Club. From Shells point of view, the debate is over. When 98 percent of scientists agree, who is Shell to say, Lets debate the science?

Helvtis hipparnir, alltaf til vandra

Eftirfarandi grein birtist dagblai Kentucky um helgina:

America won't win another war until the 1960s flower children are pushing up petunias.

Radicalized, the flower children morphed into lefty loonies who now masquerade as social progressives. No matter what they rename themselves, however, their agenda hasn't changed.

For example, consider their continued belief that America's armed forces are neo-Nazi stormtroopers who delight in burning babies to further the aims of imperialistic corporations.

Such nonsense, now treated as legitimate by the left-leaning media, denigrates the patriotic values and sincerity of half the nation. It undermines the war effort, insults the dead and the survivors of battle and their families, and supports the aims of the enemy. Translated into immigration or national defense policy, it is an invitation to the world to destroy our country.

For aging hippies, it's easier to keep blaming old enemies than to confront new ones, especially the young and ruthless. Hating a military-industrial complex is safer and less tiring. It's less complicated -- and less dangerous.

Abstract institutions neither bleed nor shoot back. Demonstrations, marches and sign-carrying don't accomplish much these days, but they are a lot more fun and allow the fiction of activist moral superiority to persist.

In their heart of hearts, lefty loonies do want America to lose in Iraq and every military theater. They want outside enemies to accomplish quickly the demolition of American capitalism, using the violence the lefty loonies are too old, too scared and too well-invested to use.

So you hear the penguins are starving and theyre starving because of mean old men, mean old companies, arctic fishing, a big taboo. And theyre foisting this on my kids who frankly were more bored that it was a nearly two-hour movie. And theyre kids!

My biggest thing was you can make a political statement all you want adult movie and all. I just think its a little tacky, and a big-time objectionable when you start foisting it on kids who dont know any better.

The character has five oclock shadow, wears a dress and has female breasts. It is clear that he is a she-male. His voice is that of talk show host Larry King.

During a dance scene at the end of the movie, this transgendered man expresses sexual desire for Prince Charming, jumps on him, and both tumble to the floor.

... An earlier scene in the movie features a wolf dressed in grandmas clothing and reading a book when Prince Charming encounters him. Later, one of the characters refers to the wolfs gender confusion.
