Take It Off, Take It ALL Off

Ah, where's Joe Namath when you need him?  Well, never mind, we now have Joe Miller from Alaska who's either trying to out-Nixon's five o'clock shadow or planning for a Noxema shaving creme commercial a la Joe Namath with a cooing blond babe holding a razor blade. Oooooo, take it ALL off!

So, there's the Big Question of the upcoming Political Silly Season:  Is Joe Miller's caefully clipped quasi scruffy semi-unshaved five o'clock shadow the result of careful two-day-growth manscaping like the macho undercover actors in the new TV series "Dark Blue?"  Or is he just so busy running around the northwoods in big-check flannel shirts hauling moose antlers by the armload that he just doesn't have time to shave?

Either way, it's the subtext that's so much fun here.  Especially in this season of Fox Noise/ Republican 24/7 FearFearFear! campaigning -- nonexistent headless bodies in the Arizona Desert! Deadly Killer Mosques at Ground Zero and in Tenessee and San Diego County! Black Helicopters coming to kill your Grandma if ObamaCare comes to your town! Communism creeping over America that can only be stopped by Glen Beck who's now speaking for God while raking in the filthy lucre of Mamon!

And with Russia right there over her left shoulder, deliciously rich speaking, book and TV contracts in her hand, here comes the Mighty Moose Killer herself . . . SARAH! SARAH! SARAH!

Ah, America is saved!

And fashionistas take note; Flannel is the season's fabric to watch.

Ann, You can't wait for November like me and mine too?

Since you mentioned Beck: http://www.theblaze.com/
It's a new news site put up last week.

The comments are always worth reading. No one is censored.

Here is something more to consider:

Unfortunately Ann, like other progressives, you can't write to the issues so you deal in personal invective. Shame! We have your number!

How ironic.

One year ago, Arcuni wrote [on the subject of the LOWWP], "When rape is inevitable, lay back and take it." Saying that Los Osos residents should be "raped"? Nope, no personal invectives there.

Ah yes, again the "professional" blogger has to chime in... So aron, just how much does an uneducated youngster earn by blogging on every blog he can find...??? ...guess his parents still have to support him as he can't get a job while spending all his life blogging... oh well... guess we should feel sorry his arrested mental growth... perhaps the drugs weren't such a good idea...

The Razor said...

Here's someone who "can't write to the issues so they deal in personal invective."

Thanks Mike! You took the cue, as expected.

I didn't see where Ann was posting "personal invective." Ever heard of satire?

Ann, it was reported today that General Petraeus condemned plans by a church in Florida to burn Qurans, saying that "it could endanger troops." Juxtapose that with recent Anti-America rallies in Kabul, Afghanistan with protesters citing Quran burnings in our country as one of many reasons why they don't like us.

In short, the anti-muslim sentiment on the right is literally emboldening our enemies.

Mike said...

Sorry aron, but you seem to have no comprehenion, but do have a need to rant at those you disagree with... and to name names... You have no experience with life outside OC and Los Osos except what you've had spoon fed to you... Go get a life before you pontificate... You most certainly are NOT speaking for the majority of this community on any subject...!!!

Yep. The American public still REFUSES to separate out the connection between terrorism/"islamic" anger at the "west" and our governmental/political policy/activities in various muslim countries. The average muslim-in-the-street doesn't hate our freedom, but they sure do hate our secret meddling in and overthrowing their elected leaders (and securing resources for corporate exploitation) (Iran) and/or invading and bombing their countries (Iraq) or using them as military and political cat's paws (Afghanistan) In short, Americans refuse to understand that so much of what we're dealing with here is direct BLOWBACK from OUR governmental policies. If this were a "religious" war, Osama bin Laden would have sent the planes into the Vatican and the Wailing Wall. Instead, he aimed them at the World TRADE Towers. Message sent but has still not been received or understood.

M said...

My memory leaves me at times, but wasn't it France or Spain that endured a terrorist attack a year or two ago? What did they do to draw the ire of the Muslim world?
Sincerely, M

Hi M There is probably someone who wrote a program where we can enter a search query "Madrid train bombing" "London Bus bombings".
I agree the dates aren’t that important.
Spain 4 years or more?. As a result, in the subsequent government election, a more “appeasement” faction won. Don't let anyone tell you that terrorism doesn't work.
Followed a year later ? By London, 3 years ago? As to "Muslim world"- I would have suggested "more extreme factions in the Muslim world"

Burning Korans is a hate crime, Harming and disrespectful to our American citizens, including those in our armed services. Wrong on many levels.
Deadly Riots in various countries have been sparked due to incited rumors of burning or other claimed insults as well as by the real thing. Most of these populations have only ONE information source available. Our Dittoheads don’t have that excuse.
"Americanism", the unattainable flash of plenty. The overwhelming threats to traditional way's of life. Jealousy. Many of Islam’s conquests did not restore harmony. Afghanistan was traditionally xenophobic even before it was Islamized.

The World outside America has memories that extend well back of 1776 or 1452. The world memory of America includes recent Greece and South American "Interventions". Many direct actions, some CIA razzle dazzle.

To be followed by "A German's view of Islam"...

"A German's View on Islam

A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.' We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, (It is A.P.)it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history; it is the fanatics who march...it is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically
slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead,
murder or honour-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque.
It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers..

The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,'
is cowed and extraneous.

skipped some here due to leangth...


History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:

Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.(ed)
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.

Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

Watershed Mark said...

“Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence”

A decent point Alon.

Those silent Muslims are scared of something some understand so much more than others...


If it must be explained to you, you may never understand.

http://www.examiner.com/statehouse-in-santa-ana/islam-and-sharia-law-are-coming-to-america

While precise statistics are scarce, the UN estimates thousands of women are killed annually in the family honor.

BTW, I don't think The Sharia Law Police are into protecting a woman's right to many chose to call "Abortion."

I wonder how the planned Mosque at Ground Zero will handle the openly homosexual watering holes in the area.

I can see Bloomberg telling the "All Pork" Hot Dog push carts vendors being told to "move along" because THEY are being insensitive…

Here is a short list of “offenses”: http://law.jrank.org/pages/672/Comparative-Criminal-Law-Enforcement-Islam.html

Oh, BTW here is California’s Immigration law: “I did a little research and found that California has the same law (Penal Code 834b) on their books and are complaining about Arizona just Passing our New Immigration Law. Wow, is this the pot calling the Kettle black?

http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=pen&group=00001-01000&file=833-851.90
Please note the last section 834(b)(c). Looks like Los Angeles and San Francisco Mayors have violated California Law and should be Investigated by the Attorney General of California.”
The Hypocrisy is astounding. “There are none so blind as those who will not see”

Watershed Mark said...

I don't think The Sharia Law Police are into protecting as so many choose to call "a woman's many choose."

Where's the outrage? Ann? LT? Ms. Kalland?

M said...

Just to be clear, I wasn't condoning the burning of the Koran.
Sincerely, M

Churadogs said...

Constant problem here: Muslim A is not Muslim B. Sunni is not Shia is not Sufi. % of muslims who are peace loving vs % of batshit crazy funadmentalists. Using the thinking I see here, we can declare that based on the actions of the (koran burning) Reverend Terry Jones, ALL CHRISTIANS ARE DANGEROUS FANATICS WHO WANT TO DESTROY MUSLIMS.

Not true.christian A is not Christian B.

Alon Perlman said...

Very clear to me that you wasn't "M". What I got from the "hidden" subtexts of your clear message that there isn't a parity, an equivalence, between the "offense" the "perception of the offense" and the "reaction".

That's the problem with saying not enough (needing Disclaimers) and saying too much (Qualifiers) in the PC world.
