Happy Harvest - for pedophiles?

In a Newsweek article entitled, "Eye Candy," (at which my eyes almost popped out of their sockets), the author asks whether little girls' costumes are becoming "too sexy."

They've actually been heading down this road for a long time - for instance, two years ago, a co-worker said another co-worker was willing to send her daughter out for Halloween looking like a hooker. That's a nice word for a little girl, isn't it? But what's worse is that she was right!

Forget safety (oh, yes, every pedophile is obeying the "lights-off" rule), health (it gets COLD in some parts of the country), and common sense (oh, she's just little, anyway) - aw, it's so cute, isn't it? Hypothermia, the parentally-sanctioned sexualization of pre-teen bodies, and teaching our most precious children the fine art of double-entendre are really GREAT goals...

If this is the direction society keeps heading, then I raise my sparkling cider to eliminating Halloween celebrations from our culture altogether.

If you can't do anything nice...

...Stick to your last idea & DON'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL.

There's a whole House hearing that will be held to discuss how "global warming" may be affecting the wildfires. *snort*

Most experts (not the political hacks representatives who flap their gums simply to release the hot air building up in their heads) on last week's fires were talking about how it's the dry underbrush - which people been legally prevented from clearing - that's been fueling these "super-fires."

And I hardly think multiple incidents of ARSON qualify as "global warming."

*Update 01 Nov*: No, I'm not saying that "they" (Harry Reid & co.) are saying global warming started the fires...but I seriously doubt that half a degree (or even three-quarters of a degree) would make a whole new set of problems this year and be responsible for "super-fires" that are exploding Ponderosa Pine trees, Nature's asbestos plant...

On our southern border

Regarding the safety of emigrating to the US - encouraging illegal immigration is a BAD, BAD IDEA. When people come here illegally, they are subject to this sort of torture and other horrors on the journey - just Google the subject to get a huge list of the corrupt, drug-run evils awaiting illegal immigrants. The link I posted was the SECOND story I've seen just this morning in the news!

Not exactly comparable with the terror of waiting in line for your papers...

Considering the illegally-low wages these immigrants are paid, allowing illegal immigration is NOT the "compassionate choice."

It's about time

It's high time that we grew a spine about dealing with China. Their reaction to President Bush's welcoming the Dalai Lama is understandable, given their history, but we SHOULD offend them if freedom and trying hard not to massacre your citizens is offensive.

People doing evil things are probably going to be offended when you say - or insinuate - that they are doing evil things.

As I started saying a while ago - when I started growing more of a spine - "there are some people whose good opinion I do not want." If the communist murderers in their government think we're just peachy, we're probably doing something wrong.

I've been wondering what all we're going to be doing and thinking in a little bit here, when the Olympics are in Beijing...I've been shaking my head in disbelief since the announcement.

And yes, I realize it would HUGELY impact our economy if we were to cut off every dealing we have with them. But, (together with Syria, North Korea, and the Soviet Russia), they're materially helping Iran fight us, too, so it's an issue of priorities.

Something finally stands out

...of the barrage of nonsense all over the news: a homeowner protects his property and is heralded by both the media and law enforcement.

Warms my heart!

Civil War, Take II

And in the "Say WHAT?" category: we have more secessionists...

Apparently half of them think our courts are "too right-wing."


The other half "never gave up on Southern independence."


The part I understand? They're trying to "save themselves from an overbearing Federal government."
