Here's a good one about The Clintons' favorite source of ready cash... Tyson Foods. Debbie Schlussel reports that:
Well, folks, here it is--the beginning (or maybe the middle) of the end of America as we know it. Tyson Foods is now ending employees' paid day off for Labor Day and, instead, giving 'em the paid day off for the Muslim festival, Eid Al-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan. It is the most important holiday in Islam.
It will be interesting to see how Tyson calculates which day it is, since Muslims are never really sure on which day or two it falls until right before--and since Shi'ites and Sunnis frequently feud about when it falls.
Same thing happened with Cinco d-f'ing Mayo once the full on flood of wetbacks began invading our homeland and taking up positions in every state in the union.
This is but a small example of how our country is being attacked from within as well as without. Every facet of our lives has been breached... religion, marriage, patriotism, law, popular culture, language, entertainment and especially education.
This from 1999--I'm sure you remember: "Stupidity no color but ignorance sure is transparent. And ignorance showed through last week when Anthony Williams, the new black mayor of Washington, D.C., accepted the resignation of Public Advocate David Howard, who is white. Howard's offense was sounding offensive: In a staff meeting, he used a perfectly good word - ''niggardly'' - to describe the administration of a fund.
Which led to this: Wisconsin University student Amelia Rideau is upset that her professor used the 'N-ardly' word at least twice: Once on Jan. 25 during a class on 14th-century English poet Geoffrey Chaucer, and once in a subsequent class to explain the word’s meaning. Ms. Rideau was outraged, and is demanding the UW implement a speech code which would punish anyone using what she described as 'offensive' language - including the 'N-ardly' word. She urged the university not to require proof of intent before punishing verbal villains such as her professor.
She's never heard of "due process" either.
I'm sure you'll agree the funniest thing in this story--other than affirmative action which allowed Ms. Rideau past the ivy-covered walls-- is that the Wisconsin Star-Trib used "N-ardly"; Or as Ms. Rideau pronounces it... "nard-lee".
And if a newspaper is too frightened to use a perfectly good word, then a great deal of the battle for wisdom over ignorance is already lost.
Now comes this:
Commissioner Defends 'Black Hole' as Racist Term
Dallas County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections and other court paperwork.
Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, white, said that central collections "has become a black hole" intro which paperwork falls.
Commissioner John Wiley Price, black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole." That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, (surprise) to demand that Mayfield apologize for his racially insensitive analogy.
The honkey commissioners just laughed.
As a briefly famous black general said... "Don't git stuck on stoopid."
This from the WSJ via Debbie S.: The Department of Homeland Security has a new strategy to help deal with illegal immigration: self-deportation. This new "voluntary, self-deportation" program with a name as stupid as the idea: "Operation Scheduled Departure."
- 550,000 illegal aliens have received final deportation orders.
- 31,000 illegal aliens have been rounded and detained.
- Thus-- if ICE can only grab 31K of 550K ordered to be deported there's but a 5.6% chance of being caught. Wetbacks w/o a deport order have even less chance of being picked up by one of only 84 ICE fugitive teams.
- No wetback in his right mind heads south.
You're doin' a fine job "Cherty"
No for something to cleanse the palate:
World War II hero and respected actor, Charles During received a tip on the hat with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame a couple of days ago.
He is the very last actor of his generation who also gave so much to our country in the military.
Like so many of the tough, unpampered men of his generation he lied about his age and forged his mom's signature on his enlistment papers.
Durning was in the first wave at Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. He was captured during the Battle of the Bulge six months later; incredibly he survived the Nazi SS massacre of American POWS near Malmadey Belgium.
(Most people are unaware that the SS massacred more than 360 US POWs and more than 100 civilians during this time in the area around Malmadey..... here. Durning was among some 40 Americans who escaped from the Malmadey group.)
Durning was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts--one for being hit in both legs by German machine-gun fire.
Durning is well-known for participating in various functions to honor American veterans. He was the past chairman of the U.S. National Salute to Hospitalized Veterans
He is also a well-known participant in the National Fourth of July Celebration on the Washington DC Mall.
We won't have him much longer, and then that era--so familiar to the WWII generation and fans of the great movies from the 30s, 40s and 50s-- will, save for memories, be gone.
