Another Extremist . . .

Jerry Vlasak, spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front, told the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works that killing medical researchers was "morally justified" to save laboratory animals. . .
He made his comments while defending a similar statement, made to the news media last year: "I don't think you'd have to kill – assassinate – too many vivisectors before you would see a marked decrease in the amount of vivisection going on. And I think for five lives, 10 lives, 15 human lives, we could save a million, 2 million, 10 million non-human lives."

During his speech, Vlasak also compared the life of lab animals to those of Black slaves and the Jewish victims of Nazi concentration camps.

The Animal Liberation Front has always been known for being sort of, well . . . extreme. They've also come under fire for vandalism and harrasment.

And yet, this is another story that I doubt will ever be seen on anywhere in the MSM.


OK, Who Thinks The MSM Is Really Running Out Of Story Ideas?

I certainly do. I woke up this morning, got on the internet, and was greeted by this story under the "Top News Stories" on my homepage. Can someone please tell me what makes that "Headline News"? I found the same story on other sites. This, however, is not an isolated incident. Recent "Headline News" stories are even less relevant. And all things weird abound on formerly-news shows. ABC's Primetime has recently done stories covering such things as reincarnation. I kid you not.
I think I liked it better when all they did was attack Conservatives.

Why Doctor-Assisted Suicide Is So Dangerous

Via World Net Daily.This story is very telling as to what such irresponsible laws can lead to.

QUOTE: He says he wants to live. But his wife, caregivers and South Carolina state officials are so focused on carrying out a decade-old, out-of-state living will that 79-year-old Jimmy Chambers can't get a word in edgewise.

Assisted Suicide and the so-called "right to die" - are they really an "individual's choice"? Apparantly not anymore.

I Think I'd Define This As "Extreme"

This scared everyone in our family.

Via the Carolina Journal Online:

QUOTE: A Raleigh activist and bookstore owner told a panel at Howard University Law School on Oct. 14 that the solution to many of the problems faced by black people is the extermination of “white people off the face of the planet.” Dr. Kamau Kambon, who taught Africana Studies 241 in the Spring 2005 semester at North Carolina State University, also said this needs to be done “because white people want to kill us.”

I kid you not, this is real. Because the media and liberals constantly whine about racism against blacks, these people can quietly and safely proclaim their hate. But if someone were to commit the awful, terrible, unspeakable, act of, say, not supporting Affirmative Action? Well . . . pity that poor soul. I can hear it now; "RACISM! RACISM! STONE HIM!!!" OK, so I exagerrated. But not much.

And do you think that ABC news, CBS news, MSNBC, etc., will pick up this story? Or even mention it? I doubt it. I seriously doubt it.

NOTE: For the complete story, click on my post title. To actually hear his comments, go here.


Well, This is an Interesting Development.

One of Saddam Hussein's trial defense lawyer has been found dead (click on the title of my post for the complete story.) Saadoun Sughaiyer al-Janabi, one of seven defense attorneys representing the former dictator, was kidnapped from his office Thursday night, a day after the first session of the trial. Hours later his body was found in the neighborhood of Ur, near his office. He died of two gunshots to the head.

The trial had already been adjourned until November 28th.

Now, I won't speculate on who did it, or why, but this is a little disconcerting, after all, this trial was supposed to be under tight security.

I just hope that all this doesn't interfere with justice. The people of Iraq deserve justice.

American Girls - Pro-Abortion?

This via ABC news.

American Girls, the giant doll company, has recently come under fire for their "I Can" bracelets which contribute to Girls, Inc., an organization openly pro-abortion/homosexual. Some Conservative groups, including the American Family Association, have threatened boycott. I visited and found this page that really puts their views right out there. I also found this statement concerning the Supreme Court. Also on their site is this page with lesbian/bisexual reading resources.

Now, American Girls has a right to donate to anyone they please, but I am disapointed that they would choose to donate to an organiztion that has such a clear political stance, especially one like this. There are many, many other worthy causes to donate money to, so why did they have to donate to this one in particular?

I personally emailed American Girls with my complaint about this. I would encourage others to do the same. You can email them at this address:, or use their form for emails at this page.

Open Post: Why I Am A Republican/Democrat

I'd like for all of you to comment on this with your own reasons.
As for me, the first reason would be abortion. There is no gray area in this issue for me. It is killing a living human being in cruel and heartless way.
I also support the wars in the Middle East. I believe there were WMDs, but even if not, I think that the liberating of the Iraqis is also a noble cause.
And I also don't appreciate how Democrats (and many Republicans) seemingly worship the NEA. I am homeschooled, and I can tell you that it isn't a great exageration to call it a "terrorist organization."
These are just a few reasons, and I don't have time to list them all.
I would like to see everyone's (Democrats included) opinions. Just please don't write in ranting about how you hate Bush, etc. (Please also stay on-topic.)

Assisted Suicide.

The Supreme Court is currently hearing arguments on this very divisive issue. The right to live or die has always been a hot-button issue.

I, for once, am torn on this particular issue. Those who know me personally and those who read my blog know that I am rarely without an opinion; but this is quite tricky. I don't believe in assisted suicide. Aside from being unconstitutional, it also brings up problems in cases such as that of Terri Schiavo and this.

That being said, I am also a huge proponent of states' rights. The Federal Government should not be given jobs, positions, or authority that belongs to the state and local government; that's what the major problem with Hurricane Katrina was. So when does the Government have the right to step in? I don't know.


A Spy In The White House.

As reported on ABC news, Leando Aragoncillo, a naturalized citizen; born in the Phillipines, has been detained on charges of espionage. Here's a quote from the story:

. . . the alleged spy worked undetected at the White House for almost three years. Leandro Aragoncillo, 46, was a U.S. Marine most recently assigned to the staff of Vice President Dick Cheney.

You can find more story links here and here.

Our nation's security has been breached, and it makes me a little nervous. Some obtuse liberals showed their fear in another way. Reports have it some have already been emailing Michelle Malkin, asking for the internment of all Filipinos. . .

Harriet Miers

I am hoping that Bush's latest nominee will be a true Conservative, but I'm not too hopeful. This picture was posted on Michelle Malkin's Blog. It's kind of scary . . .
