Can it pass the Touch Test?


No, you can't make this stuff up. And this is not a breaking story. The British Intelligence Service put this out about six months ago. However, since the fundamentalist Muslims continue their attacks on the United States, I thought I'd revisit it -- but it's politically incorrect to say so because if you do, you are an bigoted, Islamophobic, xenophobic racist.

According to the Sun (UK) (also reported by Fox News), Islamic female homicide bombers are being fitted with exploding breast implants which are almost impossible to detect.
The shocking new Al Qaeda tactic involves radical doctors inserting the explosives in women's breasts during plastic surgery — making them "virtually impossible to detect by the usual airport scanning machines."
It is believed the doctors have been trained at some of Britain's leading teaching hospitals before returning to their own countries to perform the surgical procedures.
MI5 has also discovered that extremists are inserting the explosives into the buttocks of some male bombers.
"Women suicide bombers recruited by Al Qaeda are known to have had the explosives inserted in their breasts under techniques similar to breast enhancing surgery," Terrorist expert Joseph Farah claims.

According to Fox News: "The discovery of these methods was made after London-educated Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab came close to blowing up an airliner in the U.S. on Christmas Day. He had stuffed explosives inside his underpants. Hours after he had failed, Britain's intelligence services began to pick up "chatter" emanating from Pakistan and Yemen that alerted MI5 to the creation of the lethal implants."

The lethal explosives called PETN are inserted inside plastic shapes during the operation, before the breast is then sewn up.

Top surgeons have confirmed the feasibility of the explosive implants.

Explosive experts allegedly told MI5 that a sachet containing as little as five ounces of PETN could blow "a considerable hole" in an airline's skin, causing it to crash. The Islamic terrorist female would presumably place her breasts against the bulkhead of the airplane and detonate the body-packed explosive.

I asked an expert whether trained "touchers" at airports could detect these explosives. Sadly, no, they can't. 

Israel profiles the passengers who board its El Al jets. Much as Islamic Terrorists would like to blow those aircraft and their passengers out of the sky, they haven't succeeded.  To quote El Al: "As a target for many decades, El Al employs stringent security procedures, both on the ground and on board its aircraft. These effective, though sometimes controversial, procedures have won El Al a reputation for security."

I suspect that Inez Sainz could board an El Al passenger aircraft with scrutiny -- but not much screening. The ladies pictured below her would likely be profiled off the jet.

Which brings me to my point. Juan Williams, recently fired from NPR for suggesting that people on an airplane in Islamic garb worry him, was correct. Electronic and other profiling measures work. Whether or not the US is prepared to deny a flight to people based on legitimate profiling is something else.  In this day and age of the possibility of implant bombing, maybe we need to follow the Israeli's lead.

Do fundamentalist Muslims love the US now?

Think about it -- they should.

We've pumped $10,000,000,000.00 into Pakistan in direct aid (not including "soft money") since September 11, 2001.... and there is no love what-so-ever.

We've DUMPED a lot more money than that into Afghanistan, and the Karzai government detests us for our presence -- but keep that cash flowing. And lately they seem to be getting cozy with Iran, an enemy of the United States.

The most common name for newborn babies in Great Britain is - Mohammad. No, you can't make this stuff up (LINK - CNN).

The City of New York and Mayor Bloomberg rolled out the red carpet for a 9/11 Victory Mosque at Ground Zero as a tribute and shrine to the fallen hijackers. Barack Hussein Obama himself seemed to feel as though it was a great idea.

We elected Barack Hussein Obama to be the President. He's a Muslim when it's convenient, a Black Liberation Theologist (angry black person) when it's not -- so who really knows? But the Muslims should be happy. He rubs elbows with Louis Farakham, leader of the Nation of Islam in the US and seems to really like Middle East dictators.

US policy makers decided that keeping us dependent on foreign oil is a great idea - note that we are NOT drilling in ANWR to try and move the country into an energy independent status. Note the recommendation for "Sleeping with the Devil" by Robert Baer, available on

To spite all that, I'm simply not feeling much love from fundamentalist Muslims.

What is the Tea Party?

What is the Tea Party?

That's a bit more difficult to define than "Why is the Tea Party?"

A MAJORITY of Americans are outraged that Congressional leaders would demand that the party in power sign an $800 billion stimulus bill without reading it. If you're one of those Americans, you'd find people just like you in the Tea Party.

A MAJORITY of Americans feel that the ObamaCare program is bad for them and bad for the nation. This is another one of those Trillion dollar investments where Congressional leaders mandated that the party in power sign without reading. If you agree that ObamaCare was a horrible solution to the problem the nation faces with escalating healthcare costs, you're going to find people just like you in the Tea Party.

A MAJORITY of Americans feel that the Federal Government is simply too big and doesn't respond to their concerns as citizens, as parents, as co-participants in the Republic. If you think that the Feds need to devolve some of their power to the States where the buck can stop a bit closer to home so you can have a voice in what's done, you'd feel at home in a Tea Party gathering.

Today, A MAJORITY of Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama does not represent the best interests of the citizens of the United States. If you agree with that statement, you'd feel like you are with friends when you're marching with people from the Tea Party.

The Tea Party represents the MAJORITY of Americans. They have no headquarters, there is no leader, there are no dues, nobody will hand you a machine-made sign or an "envelope" with cash in it for showing up and expressing yourself. Its ranks are made up of independents, Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, the young, the old, those in between, the rich, the poor, the middle class, all races are there, most religions (except for the Satanists, I think) are represented. They clean up after themselves when they march and don't leave trash around, they sing patriotic songs and want to see the government do what the Constitution says it should do.

The Tea Party (like it or not) is America.

Firing, Hiring and so forth

Billionaire liberal (and former Nazi) George Soros donated $1,800,000 to National Public Radio on October 18th. The money was earmarked by Soros for NPR to hire 100 new reporters for a project targeting state governments called "Impact of Government." (sort of a 'let's eliminate the 10th Amendment call to arms)

With the Soros-inspired firing of Journalist Juan Williams from NPR, they're looking to hire 101 new reporters. Firing Williams, a liberal who may not be liberal enough, sends a signal to prospective NPR hires. They'd better stay on the LIBERAL side of the line in any reporting they do. Therefore NPR has set itself up along with rags like Mother Jones Magazine as one that will tell the side of the story that is designed to help make the news rather than to merely report it -- the way George Soros wants to see it made and reported.

Flag Friday XVI

Flag Friday is a periodic discussion of the world's national flags; the project is explained and indexed here.

These discussions are about graphic design, and perhaps about nationalism and national symbolism in general. They should not be taken as critical of the countries, ideals, cultures, or people that the flags represent.


Parsons: Without comment, he gives it an "B-", 68/100.

Michael5000: It's refreshing to see a red, gold, and green African flag not getting accused of plagiarism.  This spares me having to retell yet again the story of how the African flags got their stripes.  Longtime readers won't be surprised that I'm not crazy about this one.  Too 2:1ish.

Grade: C+


Parsons: Says it's "original," and gives it a "B-", 65/100.

Michael5000: Now here's a red, gold, and green flag that could just barely be accused of plagiarism, since it can't directly buy into the pan-African thing.  You realized that Guyana isn't in Africa, right?  O.K., O.K., just checking.

Unfortunately nicknamed "The Golden Arrowhead," the Guyanan flag was designed by a Massachusetts consultant.  He didn't include the white and black piping though, which was added later.  Good call.  The black and white make the flag.  It's handsome, crisp, and -- especially regionally -- admirably distinctive and uncluttered.

Grade (for the current flag): A-


Parsons: Praising that it is "simple" and has "good colours," he assigns a "B", 70/100.

Michael5000: The civil flag of Haiti is certainly simple as can be, and I guess red and blue are "good colors."  Trouble is, from what I can tell from perusing the internets, nobody nor their dog uses the civil flag of Haiti.  Like many other countries in its part of the world, Haiti favors a much fussier state flag:

The business in the center, which includes no less than six Haitian flags, which presumably have among them 36 Haitian flags, which have 216 Haitian flags, which have....  duuuuude......   ...but wait, I digress.  The business in the center, which includes some cannons, a scroll, anchors, bayoneted rifles, Haitian flags (duuuude...), and a palm tree, seems to appear in a wide range of sizes relative to the flag as a whole.

There was apparently a minor flap at the 1936 Olympics when Liechtenstein and Haiti realized they were flying the same (civil) flag -- Liechtenstein, with much fewer people and a more recent design, stepped down and stuck a crown on their blue-and-red, which was mighty gracious of them in my book.  The more common state flag of Haiti certainly gets points for being distinctive -- it is immediately recognizable among the world's banners.

It loses some points for being busy, failing both the Betsy Ross test and the kid-with-crayons tests.

Grade (for the state flag): B-


Parsons: Accusing Honduras of both "plagiarism" and of having "too many stars," Parson allows this flag a "B-", 68/100.

Michael5000: Plagiarism?  What the what?  Because it's similar to the flags of neighboring countries El Salvador and Nicaragua?  Well, um, they used to be a single country?  And they made adjustments to the flag they were used to when they separated into the modern independent countries?  So that's not plagiarism?  I mean, geez, how are we going to make any progress in vexillological criticism if you don't check these things out, Dr. Parsons?

The Honduran flag is certainly not jaw-dropping in its special beauty, and it probably looks a bit washed out against the Central American sky.  But I say, three cheers for a Latin American country that uses its civil flag as its state flag, and doesn't feel the need for a persnickety coat of arms on either of them.  Hip hip!

Grade: B+


Parsons: Without comment, it gets a "B-", 68/100.

Michael5000: The Hungarian tricolor rocks.  The colors are firmly associated with all things Hungarian -- check out any bottle of paprika -- and the dominant red and dark green sandwich the white center stripe in a perfect balance of color value.

After the second world war, a Stalinist device was added to the center of the flag.  As things lightened up later in the century, it became a popular gesture of defiance to rip those puppies off -- they were too fussy! oh, and symbolic of a totalitarian nightmare -- and you had lots of flags that looked like this:

There is a movement afoot in the Hungarian government to get some sort of state seal back on the flag.  Bad call!  You've got it good, Hungary.  Stick with the tricolor, the whole tricolor, and nothing but the tricolor.

Grade: A

The Culture - Extremists

Yes, I shamelessly lifted Andrew Klavan: The Extremists are Coming! from Euripides (LINK). I did this because I thought that the 'definitions' being cast by the mainstream media are so skewed that another source for this youtube video might be helpful to blog readers who might not yet have drifted to Euripides' blog.

Stimulus Hoax - and thoughts on jobs

The occupation that Barack Hussein Obama seems to think was the most valuable to society is that of the  community organizer/agitator. Surprisingly enough, it is the only actual job he ever held. Many people, not just me, would consider that job one that only a parasite would take. Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama all fit comfortably into the role of social parasite. That we elected one of these human leaches president is a problem we have to live with for another two years.

The Washington Post published a disturbing interview that you might want to read for yourself. I will comment on it below. It deals with jobs, the stimulus, etc.

Some in Washington DC crow that the $800,000,000,000.00 stimulus spending saved jobs. I don't know. Nobody knows. I do know that of the $110,000,000 spent from the stimulus bill to save jobs in the City of Los Angeles that it cost $2.2 million per minimum wage job to be either created or saved for one year. (Source: Los Angeles Times - previously discussed and sourced on this blog)

If you presume that it only costs $2.2 million dollars for government to create a minimum wage job for one year, then we come to a number of around SIX HUNDRED BILLION dollars to create the three million jobs that Obama claimed he saved. Not all of the stimulus money has been spent so one may speculate may be right, based on numbers alone...but he lied.
Only a community organizer with no grounding in reality would consider that spending $2.2 million per minimum wage job for one year is a bargain.
However, according to the Washington Post article above, Obama casually admitted that his claim last year that his stimulus spending bill would create 3.5 million "shovel-ready jobs" was not true.

Fox News played six video clips from different Obama speeches bragging that his $787 billion stimulus bill would create millions of "shovel-ready jobs." Now, Obama admits that those things he talked about never existed.

Columnist Mark Shields commented, "How would you like to be a Democratic member of the House fighting for your life right now, getting hit over the head for having voted for the stimulus bill, and have the president say in the New York Times Sunday magazine, 'There's no such thing as shovel-ready projects'?"

America needs to face the truth that the stimulus is not merely a failure, it was a fake. Obama's ramrodding of ObamaCare through Congress by peddling the narcissistic notion that we should pass it first, and then learn to love it, was a colossal failure as well.


As bad as the Jimmy Carter presidency was, Obama has consistently hit new lows, never dreamed of by Carter - who never hated America, he was just incompetent. 

Obama bows to foreign dictators who hate us and apologizes for America at the United Nations. He puts down American exceptionalism. He belittles America's generosity in saving and rebuilding other nations that ask for help after attacks or disaster. He attacks our deeply held religious values. 

The American people were allowed to learn less about Obama than anyone ever elected president. We don't even know, for example, his college grades or who paid his tuition at pricey Harvard and Columbia. The mainstream media betrayed the American people. Chris Matthews and his colleagues seemed caught up in the tingly sensation that ran up their legs.


It's not easy for a private citizen to create even one job and keep it going for years. Companies run on margins that need to be anticipated if jobs are to be created. It takes years to bring a product to market and nobody really knows if a product will be successful until it actually sells. Creating a government job requires a dozen private jobs with people paying taxes to support that government worker. Will somebody please tell the president that? I don't think he gets it. As Oscar Goodman, mayor of Las Vegas, said of Barack Hussein Obama, "He's a very slow learner."

Explaining Political Morality

I originally posted this on my other blog, My Journey. A friend asked me to put it up here on Virtual Mirage. One reason for the re-blog is the O'Reilly appearance on The View, a leftist love-fest on MSNBC in the morning. So bear with the rant on The View before I settle down to discuss political morality and utopian socialism.

Liberals and progressives anchor their views of political morality in the following three key areas: (1) self-esteem (increasing your self-worth without having to achieve anything; (2) hope (achieving your goals without any real effort) and (3) victimhood (it's not your fault that you haven't achieved anything or made any effort). Nowhere is are the three vicious lies promoted by the liberal media so perniciously spread more than they are on The View

Our cultural focus on enhancing "self-esteem" has resulted in the near-worship of emotions and feelings at the expense of reason and thought; on emphasizing "root causes" and victimhood, instead of demanding that behavior be civilized and that individuals exert self-discipline and self-control--no matter what they are "feeling". The Hollywood hens on The View would have you believe that there is nobility in being a victim. Therefore:
  1. You are not responsible for what happened to you
  2. You are always morally right
  3. You are not accountable to anyone for anything
  4. You are forever entitled to sympathy
  5. You are always justified in feeling moral indignation for being wronged
  6. You never have to be responsible again for anything
The ladies who live in The View exalt themselves in their liberally sanctioned exaltation and refer to the rest of us as people who "live in fly-over country who cling to their guns and religion" and smugly chuckle because we simply can't think as clearly as they do. If we vote liberals from office in November 2, stand by for their retreat to victimhood (see above), because the racist, sexist, Islamaphobic, bigots from fly-over country just didn't get the hope and change.

This ends my present rant on The View.

On, to Political Morality.

A friend of mine who spends a great deal of his time in old China has commented to me that the Chinese people seem to have a gap in their social experience. I explained that something happens when the mind is chained in a multi-generational sense. Children propagandized by dogmatic tyrants have had not only their capacity to think for themselves abrogated; they have had their capacity to make moral choices taken from them. Given fifty or sixty years, it creates a generation of people who need to re-learn morality and the quality of mercy.

The very foundation of capitalism is human freedom in its most classical, liberal tradition. And that frightens American progressives to their very core. Try to explain it and they will deny it with vitriol. Capitalism's incredible production of wealth is the economic side-effect that occurs when political freedom is present. It has been argued, and I agree, that both economic and political freedom are absolute prerequisites for moral behavior.

The moral case for capitalism is not taught in our schools, nor is it argued much in our culture. In fact it has been more or less universally accepted by the intellectual elites that systems such as communism and socialism are "morally superior" to capitalism, hence more "socially just", even though in practice such systems have led to the death and enslavement of millions, and to those unlucky enough not to die from them, they have led to the most horrible shrinking and wasting of the human soul.

Neither socialism nor communism nor any kind of religious fanaticism is compatible with morality at all. If all of one's actions are coerced by the state or religion, or both; if human activity is indoctrinated, legislated, regulated and ordained down to the last minute detail--particularly to the degree we see in other countries of the world --then how can it possibly be argued that one's actions are moral? 

Human behavior under such systems is not voluntarily chosen, but actively coerced. Morality has to be a matter of choice, not mandate. One cannot hold a person responsible for actions that are coerced or forced from him. Morality can only exist when freedom of action exists; and thus moral actions in any field of human endeavor require freedom.

Conduct may only be thought of as moral or immoral when it is freely chosen by the individual. It is only then that the moral significance of the action can be assessed. It is only when we are free to act that we can exercise moral judgement.

Which brings us to a capitalist political/economic system. Only in a free economic system within a free political system is it even possible to be moral, since benevolence toward others, compassion, charity, and generosity cannot exist without freedom. Benevolence, generosity, charity, and compassion that are mandated by the state, or by a religion (on pain of death or other consequence); or by any regulations on behavior; or by force--are meaningless insofar as individual morality is concerned.

The American left's utopian agenda has forgotten that human ambition and the drive to freedom is not as easily crushed or eradicated--as the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century discovered; and as the ones of the 21st will soon realize. 

The human spirit--a spirit which strives always to throw off the shackles hold it down; which constantly veers toward freedom and away from slavery--cannot ever be completely extinguished and will always rise from the ashes of the left's next failed utopian experiment.

Coming down to the wire!

picture H/T Dale

The mid-term elections are close, the predictions for Democrats are dire, and the political claims being thrown out by the 'party of transparency' are tantamount to asking the Republicans if they've stopped beating their wives yet. Rhetoric designed to distort and obfuscate is not new in America and it's dejure in politics, but it's getting nasty.

Democratic candidates, loath to identify themselves with Zero are paying the Clinton Machine to swing through town, blurt out epithets and unbridled support for the one paying for it and then the Machine moves on to the next whistle stop.

Politics as usual? Yeah. Nothing is new here, or is it?

The Democrats being fed back their own socialist rants and votes for the past two years stings. BUT the mainstream Republicans - those who survived the primary process - are reassessing their positions and perhaps their futures in light of a large number of born-again conservatives who actually demand that they DO something.

Doing something according to the spontaneous wave of political action across the country means that politicians will be HELD ACCOUNTABLE by the electorate. What a concept? Can Washington DC survive?

The public demands:
  • No more un-funded legislation. If you can't pay for it without raising taxes, you shouldn't vote for it.
  • A repeal of ObamaCare and a revisitation of healthcare reform that doesn't include socialized medicine.
  • A reduction in discretionary spending.
  • A responsible reduction in entitlement spending focused heavily on Medicaid/Medicare. And changes in Social Security that will keep the system solvent.
  • Support for America's allies, wherever they are. Firm and unwavering opposition to our enemies - and the wisdom to decide who is who.
  • Closing America's southern border with Mexico to illegal immigration/narcotics/human trafficking/organized crime, etc. And a guest worker program that makes sense. Elimination of the "anchor baby" program and deportation of Illegal aliens (if they're not guest workers).

Flag Friday XV

Flag Friday is a periodic discussion of the world's national flags; the project is explained and indexed here.

These discussions are about graphic design, and perhaps about nationalism and national symbolism in general. They should not be taken as critical of the countries, ideals, cultures, or people that the flags represent.


Parsons: Calling it "original" and "eyewatering" -- in fact, "impressively eyewatering, given only two colors" -- he gives it a "B", 70/100.

Michael5000: The Greek flag is a remarkable flag achievement, combining the simplest of elements to create a banner that is instantly recognizable, unique, and iconic.  It's a flag classic.

Grade: A


Parsons: Again with the "eyewatering," in fact "possibly the most eyewatering flag in existence." He gives it a "C+", 60/100.

Michael5000: Ol' Kalaallit Nunaat isn't a full-fledged "country" -- it is largely autonomous, but still looks to Denmark for diplomatic representation, defense, economic policy, and, well, money.  I'm covering it here only because it was on Dr. Parsons' list, and because it has an awesome flag.

Greenland 's flag is not entirely unlike Greece's: a strong color interacting with white, very simple elements, and an effect that is visually distinct, elegant, and memorable.  Here are the specs is you are moved to sew one up for yourself:

Incidentally, does anyone here see anything "eyewatering" about either the Greek or the Greenlandic flag?  I think Parsons needs to lay off the eyedrops.

Grade (for the current flag): A


Parsons:He feels that it has "too many stars" and is "too busy," and assigns it a "D", 40/100. "What is that thing on the left?" he asks.

Michael5000: Living in those dark days before everybody knew about the Wiki, Parsons had no way of knowing that "the symbol in the hoist represents a clove of nutmeg, one of the principal crops of Grenada. It also represents a link to Grenada's former name, which was the 'Isle of Spice.'" And, who knows, maybe nutmeg cloves are immediately recognizeable and cause patriotic stirrings in all good Grenadans.  It does seem like a rather obscure visual reference though.

Too many stars?  Too busy?  I'd have to agree.  The bright colors might inspire our hypothetical child with crayons, but they'd be well advised to use a coloring-book template.

Photographic evidence suggests that flagmakers play pretty fast and loose with the dimensions of the central star.  And also that the flag, for all that it is rather busy, has a certain sunny exhuberance to it as well.  Which is nothing to sneeze at.

Grade: B-


Parsons: "There are so many things wrong with this flag," notes Dr. Parsons, and lists them: it is "too busy," has "bad colours," includes "weapons," "writing," and "graven images." It is slapped with a "D", 40/100.

Michael5000: As usual, Parsons dislikes a Latin American flag because of it displays a coat of arms.  I'm sympathetic, although as usual I'll note that he could just choose to fly the civil ensign on important Guatemalan holidays.  It has no weapons, writing, graven images, or busy-ness of any kind:

But actually, although I don't in general approve of this level of detail and frim-frammery in a flag, I can make an exception for Guatemala.  Know why?

Because that bird perched on the gun between the laurel branches is a freaking Resplendent Quetzal, that's why!  A Resplendent Quetzal makes up for a variety of sins, that's what I always say.

Grade: B


Parsons: Without comment, he gives it a "B-", 65/100.

Michael5000: As Ghana adopted the colors of the Ethiopian flag out of a spirit of pan-Africanism, Guinea adopted the colors of the Ghanaian flag when it became independent the next year.  The obvious downside is that the flags that followed this pattern are not visually distinct.  Mali, neighboring Guinea to the north and east, has a vertical tricolor of green, yellow, and red.  If the two nations became embroiled in a 18th-Century infantry conflict, rallying around the flag would be tricky business indeed.

Grade (for the current flag): B

Hot Hungarian

Occupying a prominent location in the Cartophiliac kitchen is the Szeged Hungarian Hot Paprika. Good stuff, not only because it features a map on the tin!

But wait, there's more! The map of Hungary, in three regions, looks like a sideways flag of Hungary!

Can any Hungarian carto-vexillo-fans out there tell me if the tri-colored regions on the tin represent three distinct regions in the country?

Vexillophiles note: Michael5000 gives the flag of Hungary an "A" in his latest Flag Friday post.

(I'm also hoping the title "Hot Hungarian" will help me get more hits from web surfers....)

Just HOW Stupid?

How stupid does the Democratic Party think that the country is?

How stupid do Muslims think the rest of us are?

"Islam is only a misunderstood religion of peace!"  Perhaps they are every bit as "peaceful" as any religion could possibly be that intends to dominate the world, kill all those 'infidels' who will not submit to their ideology; and install sharia law to eliminate political, economic and social freedom from the face of the earth.

How stupid to Politicians think that the rest of us are?

Now this is an interesting question because it's a problem for ALL politicians. People are waking up to debt that is so extreme that the very fabric of the nation may tear apart because of it. Social Security and Medicare are bankrupt. ObamaCare is so dreadfully expensive that the rampant debt it will accrue is unimaginable -- yet the hope and change people keep pimping socialism as the solution.

How stupid do Mexicans think that Americans are?

The answer is, very frigging stupid. Even as Mexicans build a wall on their southern border in an attempt to curb illegal immigration from Central and South America, they lobby the United States NOT to build a wall and Americans appear to listen. Phoenix is the kidnapping capital of the world (per capita) and in absolute numbers is second only to Mexico City. Cross-border organized crime, narcotics smuggling and human trafficking are rampant and the American President wants to make everyone a citizen. -- the Mexicans may be right.

How stupid does Barack Hussein Obama think that the rest of us are?

The answer is that he believes that he's the smartest guy on the planet (as a pathological narcissist) and all he has to do is tell a lie and the rest of us are obliged to believe it.

How stupid do the Iranians think that the US is?

Evidence indicates that they think we're a nation of soft cowards. Clearly if you look at Congress and Obama, we're all of that. They fully intend to build and deploy nuclear weapons with which they will dominate the Persian Gulf and the Middle East and trust that we will stand by and do nothing. Based on what the US Administration is saying, they're right about us.

The Obama Town Hall Pageant

Did you ever want to bask in the aura of "the one"? I don't think you'll ever get the opportunity unless you pass the screening process at National Review reports that in order to join in the audience at a "town hall meeting with Obama" that you first need to be screened as an extra by Hollywood professionals to insure you meet the demographic and won't ask any embarrassing questions. You can apply by contacting

If you fit this demographic, don't bother to apply.

I was just a little shocked to learn that the Democratic Party is not paying for participation in this pageant. Usually being part of a hollywood event where you speak lines requires pay as you work to earn your Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) card. The SEIU marchers are paid. The IBEW marchers are paid. ACORN workers are paid in narcotics, with prostitutes or cash as we have learned. (ACORN is now defunct) What's wrong with these cheap suckers in the Democratic Party? 

If you're black or are an elitist liberal from San Francisco 
or Martha's Vineyard, you might make the cut.

Ok, you can stand there with the machine made signs, cheer and shout for Obama if you make the demographic cut! Vanity Fair Magazine (linked) has an interesting article on how to pass the screening cut to make it on an Obama Town Hall Pageant. Vanity Fair suggests the following:

• Do: Be attractive, but not ostentatiously so.
• Don’t: Wear any Revolutionary War regalia in your photo submission.
• Do: Seem intellectual, but not elite; imply engagement, but not enragement; appear politically active, but not a threat to yourself or others.
• Don’t: Use the words “Nazi,” “Stalinst,” “Marxist,” “Hitler-esque,” “Himmler-y,” or “Goebbels-ish”—in the affirmative or the negative—in describing your political views.
• Do: Make sure you were not previously on any other MTV programs.
• Don’t: Work for Andrew Breitbart’s Web site.

If, for whatever reason, you are not selected despite following our guidelines, you may always ask your question on Twitter. There are no hard and fast rules for submissions-via-tweet, although we’d recommend avoiding excessive acronyms, emoticons, or SarahPalinUSA @-replies.

MAY attend an Obama Town Hall Pageant

May NOT attend an Obama Town Hall Pageant.

"At this moment the entire group of people broke into a deep, slow, rhythmical chant of ‘B-B! …B-B!’ — over and over again, very slowly, with a long pause between the first ‘B’ and the second-a heavy, murmurous sound, somehow curiously savage, in the background of which one seemed to hear the stamp of naked feet and the throbbing of tom-toms. For perhaps as much as thirty seconds they kept it up. It was a refrain that was often heard in moments of overwhelming emotion. Partly it was a sort of hymn to the wisdom and majesty of Big Brother, but still more it was an act of self-hypnosis, a deliberate drowning of consciousness by means of rhythmic noise. Winston’s entrails seemed to grow cold. In the Two Minutes Hate he could not help sharing in the general delirium, but this sub-human chanting of ‘B-B! …B-B!’ always filled him with horror. Of course he chanted with the rest: it was impossible to do otherwise. To dissemble your feelings, to control your face, to do what everyone else was doing, was an instinctive reaction."- 
Orwell, 1984
