England's Nutrition Nazi
Britain's Prince of Wales never grows tired of demonstrating to the world the consequences of cousins marrying. Earlier this week, Prince Charles proclaimed that "getting" McDonald's "banned" was "the key" to promoting better nutrition among the unwashed masses.
This aimless teabag is such an advocate of good nutrition, he used his wholly unearned income to fund a business -- Duchy Originals -- which produces supposedly healthy organic foods. But today the London Evening Standard pointed out that some of the Duchy Originals products, such as the Cornish Pasty, are not only chock full of yummy buttery goodness but also contain more fat, salt and calories than McDonald's Big Mac. Oops, Your Highness!
Seriously, why would anyone ever consider Charles' opinion on this or any other topic? Think about it. This guy's only job experience is waiting for his mother to die. He's also an Islamist sympathizer who prattles around his castles wearing Islamic robes. Even more disturbing, Charles so actively worked against America's interests in the early stages of the War on Terror that President Bush canceled the prince's scheduled White House visit.
Most damning of all, this idiot cheated on his hot piece of ass wife with a woman who appears to be Mr. Ed's stunt double.
The moral of the story? Inbreeding impairs one's sight and judgment.
Jihad at Kent State
The hard-earned money of Ohio taxpayers is paying the salary of an avowed, Death-to-America jihadist professor at Kent State University.
Townhall columnist Mike Adams treats us to the gory details:
Yesterday afternoon, I logged on to the "Global War" blog (global-war.bloghi.com) of Associate Professor Julio Pino – a Muslim convert who teaches at Kent State University. The heading for the site used to read "The Worldwide Web of Jihad: Daily News from the Most Dangerous Muslim in America." Now it reads "Are You Prepared for Jihad?" IN THE NAME OF OBL. 2007: THE YEAR OF ISLAMIC VICTORY!"
Adams said he was so shocked by what he read, he called Pino's office at Kent State. Pino, he was told, was only in his office two days a week. Cushy job, wouldn't you say? So, Adams rightly concluded, Pino "was drawing a paycheck from the people of the State of Ohio while trying to launch a Jihad against people like me. In fact, just five minutes before I called he posted an entry under the title "'Crusaders Can’t Take Anymore in Afghanistan!'"
I know, I know. It's hardly shocking that an American college professor hates the United States and loudly proclaims it. But Pino crosses the line from mere dissent into full blown treason. Get a load of Adams' next point:
... just in case you were curious about the purpose of this site, it is provided in the upper right corner: "We are a jihadist news service, and provide battle dispatches, training manuals, and jihad videos to our brothers worldwide. All we want is to get Allah’s pleasure. We will write ‘Jihad’ across our foreheads, and the stars. The angels will carry our message throughout the world."
There is also an "Oath of Freedom" in the upper right corner: "We were born free. We will live freely and when death comes to us, we will die freely. Jihad is changing all that can be changed; freeing ourselves through our own efforts; and the conviction that truth will prevail, inshallah."
Under the entry "Sister Detonates Herself to Eliminate Shia Traitors" there is a description of a female suicide bomber who recently killed 41 people. Just in case you wondered how the host of the site feels about the suicide bomber, the next line tells you: "Now she lies on the Golden Couch of Paradise."
Not only should Julio Pino lose his pretend job (which he won't), he should also be prosecuted for providing material support to America's enemies during wartime (which also won't happen).
Or better yet, let's just send the Ohio National Guard back to Kent State to finish the job they started in 1970.

Happy Birthday, George!
A member of Congress has finally introduced a bill that, if enacted, would restore George Washington's birthday as a legal federal holiday. The bill also mandates that Lincoln's birthday would be observed separately with a presidential proclamation.
Cybercast News Service quotes the congressman, Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland, discussing his reasons for introducing the Washington-Lincoln Recognition Act of 2007:
Presidents' Day is a historical myth that is more damaging because it eliminates Washington's indispensable greatness from our conversations, news stories and school lessons about this federal holiday. H.R. 75 would help correct this ongoing historic mistake ...
Three cheers for Bartlett. What's strange is that no one in the congressional delegation from Washington's home state of Virginia spearheaded this initiative.
It's doubtful the House Democrats will allow this bill to come up for a vote but, if they do, most if them will vote against it. Perhaps the Democrats will counter Bartlett's bill with a proposal to make Benedict Arnold's birthday a federal holiday.

George Washington Day
Note: This is a reprint of an item I originally posted on February 17, 2003.
Today America pays tribute to its presidents. Unfortunately that group includes many lackluster chief executives, including the politically inept (James Buchanan, Ulysess Grant, Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter) and the morally inept (John Tyler, Millard Fillmore, Warren Harding, Lyndon Johnson, and Bill Clinton). These presidents are not worthy of a holiday-caliber commemoration.
Moreover, honoring all the presidents collectively on one day renders the holiday meaningless. That's why Congress should scrap Presidents Day and replace it with a holiday honoring the one person indispensable in the forging of the United States: George Washington.
As the Continental Army's commander-in-chief in the American Revolution, the most influential voice calling for a Constitutional Convention (over which he presided) and the first president of the United States, Washington occupies the center stage of American history. But more important than what Washington did is what he did not do. Though he would have had the military and popular support to do so, he firmly refused absolute power by explicitly dismissing suggestions that he make himself America's king.
In May of 1782 — less than a year after the British surrendered to Washington at Yorktown — the Continental Army had yet to be paid by the new (and largely powerless) Congress established under the Articles of Confederation. In an attempt to resolve the issue of compensation, Colonel Lewis Nicola wrote his commander-in-chief expressing the opinion of many in the Continental Army that Washington make himself king of the United States. Washington's indignant reply reveals not only his exemplary character but his steadfast commitment to limited republican government:
Sir: With a mixture of great surprise and astonishment I have read with attention the Sentiments you have submitted to my perusal. Be assured Sir, no occurrence in the course of the War, has given me more painful sensations than your information of there being such ideas existing in the Army as you have expressed, and I must view with abhorrence, and reprehend with severety. For the present, the communication of them will rest in my own bosom, unless some further agitation of the matter, shall make a disclosure necessary.
I am much at a loss to conceive what part of my conduct could have given encouragement to an address which to me seems big with the greatest mischiefs that can befall my Country. If I am not deceived in the knowledge of myself, you could not have found a person to whom your schemes are more disagreeable; at the same time in justice to my own feelings I must add, that no Man possesses a more sincere wish to see ample justice done to the Army than I do, and as far as my powers and influence, in a constitutional way extend, they shall be employed to the utmost of my abilities to effect it, should there be any occasion. Let me conjure you then, if you have any regard for your Country, concern for yourself or posterity, or respect for me, to banish these thoughts from your Mind, and never communicate, as from yourself, or any one else, a sentiment of the like Nature. — May 22, 1782
As the nation's first president, Washington established presidential precedents and traditions to which most of his successors adhere. He defined the office. In doing so he was guided by one objective, which he explained in his Farewell Address of 1796:
With me, a predominant motive has been to endeavour to gain time to our country to settle and mature its yet recent institutions, and to progress without interruption, to that degree of strength and consistency, which is necessary to give it, humanly speaking, the command of its own fortunes.
Washington's policy triumphed. And today the United States has "the command of its own fortunes."
America should show its gratitude and respect by designating George Washington's birthday — February 22 — a national holiday.

The Gipper's 96th Birthday
We in government should learn to look at our country with the eyes of the entrepreneur, seeing possibilities where others see only problems. - Ronald Reagan, January 26, 1985
Man, I miss that guy.

Biden Flies The Byrd At Barack
Is infamous plagiarist Sen. Joe Biden now stealing material from ex-KKK leader Sen. Robert Byrd? Judging from Biden's comments about Senator Barack Obama in the New York Observer, it appears so:
I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy ...
I guess that means that, according to Biden, previous black presidential candidates were poorly spoken, dimwitted, stinky and ugly. Surprisingly, Biden didn't speculate on Sen. Obama's swimming ability.
If Biden is indeed plagiarizing Byrd, perhaps he'll also borrow the senior senator's white hood. On the other hand, if these comments are any indication, the old Klansman may still be using it.
