Idiot List

Hate Crimes?

Maybe it’s because I’m from a small town, but I guess I don’t see the issue. It seems we have a few people that want to make more of it than what it is, and many jumping on just for the cause.

If you want to declare crimes of hate as those where it’s one race against another, rather than based on a personality clash, than there are many cases where there are victims on all sides. Since our friend, Al Sharpton, wants to define Jena as an example, you have the case where it was wrong for kids to intimidate others with nooses, and even more wrong when the ones who felt intimidated took their anger out by putting a fellow student in the hospital. In either case, it’s wrong.

Like I said, I live in a small town and in an old house. I can tell you that when you work to clean something this old, there will always be dirt remaining, if you look for it.

All Hail the King

Let’s get this straight: During a Latin America meeting the Prime Minister of Spain is speeking. The ever obnoxious Hugo Chavez was talking, out of turn (I’m assuming this, as his microphone was turned off), about the fascist diplomat(s) from spain. Chavez is asked to try to be diplomatic, and when Chavez continued the king of Spain told him to ‘Shut up’.

Sounds fair to me, not unreasonable.

Now Chavez states that he was disrespected by the arrogant leaders of Spain? Now I was taught as a child not to interrupt others, and I certainly think that diplomacy allows all parties a chance to voice their opinions, which apparently wasn’t working so well at this meeting. So now, from my perspective, Chavez is either not a diplomat, or he never learned manners as a child, or both. Now he claims to hope that diplomacy was not damaged, but also states that it really does not matter.

This is just the latest demonstration from Hugo, who regularly expects the U.S. to invade Venezuela and is working to assume full dictatorship of the country as he squanders his oil money in trade for popularity.

Was King Juan Carlos wrong correct Chavez? Absolutely not! What would your mother have said?

Westboro Baptist Church Get Bitch-Slapped!

The Phelps clan was slapped with an $11 million dollar penalty for being a public nuisance at a funeral for a fallen Marine in Maryland.

While that doesn’t even come close to the loss of someone’s child, it’s about time.

Would someone please deport these people, who tote signs to the tune of ‘Thank God for dead soldiers’? Maybe they would be welcomed in someplace such as Venezuela…
