I have no idea if the title of this rant is a real word or not but it should be. Let me set the table first. I have no problem with Jews celebrating Chanukah, Muslims celebrating Ramadan, Wiccans celebrating whatever it is they celebrate. Buddists, Toaists, Pagans or whatever, knock yourselves out. But Christmas is Christmas. The ACLU and much of the left have been mounting an all out assault on this religious holiday and I am having some decidedly un-Christian thoughts about this pond scum.

Every year, like clockwork, the ACLU whittles a little more of our rights to worship and celebrate the Christmas holidays. Don Feder writes in Front Page Magazine:

America was founded by Christians and based on Judeo-Christian values. The
signers of the Declaration of Independence and drafters of the Constitution all
were Christians – not Buddhists, or Wiccans, or Zoroastrians. Were it not for
Protestant Christianity, we wouldn’t have limited government, separation of
powers, a Bill of Rights, or religious tolerance. In short, without Christians,
the United States of America would not exist.

He goes on to add something that many forget:

The brave men who fought and died for America in every war from the
Revolution to Iraq, overwhelmingly were Christians. Count the number of crosses
in Arlington National Cemetery (on federal property, no less). Add the Stars of
David. Now compare them to the number of crescents.
Yet in a nation founded
by Christians on Christian values, defended by Christians from Bunker Hill to
Falluja, primarily populated by Christians, and whose public institutions are
financed by Christians, most references to the holiday that celebrates the birth
of the founder of Christianity have been expunged.

It is an excellent article and should be read in its entirety. Another article worth reading is from The Reporter.com , here is an excerpt:

The actions of the ACLU are clearly subversive in that they are actively
pursuing a course of perverting and corrupting by undermining the morals,
allegiance and faith of Americans, and of America and its institutions. They are
attacking the original intent of our Constitution and in doing that are
attempting to overthrow or overturn the Constitution and its amendments. That is
subversion. Its name, American Civil Liberties Union, masks its true

I will continue to follow more of this but it is something that Americans need to pay more attention to lest our freedoms become eroded so much that it will be even more difficult to get this genie back in the bottle. Getting freedoms back is harder than losing them. "evil triumphs when good men do nothing".

Oh Really, O'Reilly?

I watch Bill O'Reilly and his "No Spin Zone" on Fox and have always had a love/hate thing going for the star pundit. I find myself agreeing with him on some things and yelling at the TV on others. My wife thinks it is silly to yell at personalities inside a box but I just can't help it. But Bill and I have parted ways in his (probably pre-emptive self defense) taking up the cause of Dan Rather. I am not alone in this observation. Captains Quarters has a couple of thoughts that I agree with completely. More at Wizbang. Dan Rather took forged documents that he knew were questionable and ran with a story for the sole purpose of affecting an election. He was not just a talking head reading a script, he was managing editor. O'Reilly is using the airwaves to come to the defense of Rather as a way to focus attention away from his "indiscretions" and have a way of defending himself of being "slimed". Credibility has dropped to zero in this household.

Just a little more advice

I wrote in one of my previous rants about some advice for the losers in the last election, trying to do my part to help. Some of the advice can be recycled in an advice column to the Media.

Get out more and expand your horizons. Visit exotic places and taste the culture of the aboriginies in the "middle world". There is a vast and varied world out there that needs to be explored. Ohio, Iowa and the unknown expanses of Texas and Alaska. Think of the adventure of being one of the first in your circle to discover the unwashed and stupid masses that inhabit the land known as it was in old maps "Beware, here be Dragons" and find out that armadillos and horned toads aren't really dragons and people from New Mexico are actually Americans. The South is not really an inbred re-run of Deliverence and most everyone in the red states really do know how to read.

It seems that one of the problems with the MSM is that they only consort with people in their own little circle and cannot fathom that there may be "another world" out there that might not fit the pigeonhole scenario.

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!

What seems like a long time ago I saw an image that reminded me of a poem I had read in a literature class even longer ago. Watching the toppling of the statue in Freedom Square, Bagdad.

I met a traveller from an antique land,Who said: Two vast and
trunkless legs of stoneStand in the desert. Near them on the sand, Half sunk, a
shatter'd visage lies, whose frown And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamp'd on
these lifeless things,The hand that mock'd them and the heart that fed;And on
the pedestal these words appear:‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:Look on my
works, ye Mighty, and despair!’Nothing beside remains. Round the decayOf that
colossal wreck, boundless and bare,The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I decided to write this little musing now because of the things I see going on in the world and how it relates in my mind to the 'shatter'd visage' of Ozymanias. Idi Amin, Mugabe, Milosovic and so many other despots and thugs have joined Saddam and met their end as dictators. Others whose time is short, such as UBL, Zarqawi, Mullah Omar etal may hopefully join this august club soon.

The Freedom and Democracy train seems to keep rolling with the response to the election in Ukraine. Leonid Kuchma and his handpicked Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych are finding out, that to openly steal an election through the use of thugs, intimidation and outright fraud doesn't seem to work anymore. Putin needs to pay close attention to this watershed event in Ukraine. Even with blatent string pulling by Moscow and the attempt to stifle the press, the world and the Ukraine people know the truth and the Russian people are learning the truth. Despite Putins attempts to bring back some of the Communist type government with crackdowns on the Russian press, he needs to worry about another Yeltsin moment. If you keep betting the wrong horse you will run short of capital sooner or later. Even Jimmy Carter would have a hard time certifying this election, and that says a lot.

Happy Thanksgiving...A Look Back

General Thanksgiving
By the PRESIDENT of the United States Of America
WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me "to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"
NOW THEREFORE, I do recommend and assign THURSDAY, the TWENTY-SIXTH DAY of NOVEMBER next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty which we have since enjoyed;-- for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish Constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted;-- for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge;-- and, in general, for all the great and various favours which He has been pleased to confer upon us.
And also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions;-- to enable us all, whether in publick or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us); and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and, generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
GIVEN under my hand, at the city of New-York, the third day of October, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

How many straws does it take?

As a follow-up on my previous post on Mr. Annan and the UN, this in from Reuters.

UNITED NATIONS, Nov 22 (Reuters) - The United Nations is investigating
about 150 allegations of sexual abuse by U.N. civilian staff and soldiers in the
Congo, some of them recorded on videotape, a senior U.N. official said on

Why has this not been more widely reported? Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Kobe Bryant and Scott Peterson plus the Basketbrawl stories are more newsworthy. What was I thinking? Trivia like this news about the UN, and Darfur and the good news out of Iraq and Afghanistan pale in comparison to "hard hitting news stories". I almost forgot too about Rather "resigning" and Klien being the new head of CNN News.

Meanwhile back at the rant, I bring you this on the OFF.

"....For many months, allegations have been circulating about the
complicity of U.N. officials in Saddam's trickery, including the son of U.N.
Secretary General Kofi Annan. For his part, Annan has so far refused
Congressional requests calling for U.N. witnesses to testify on their handling
of the Oil for Food program. Annan says he is conducting his own internal
investigation and will cooperate when he is ready.
Such contempt of the rule
of law by the U.N. is revealing. Published reports have suggested that as many
as 270 U.N. and foreign officials may be caught up in the Oil for Food scandal,
including those from some of the nations which opposed U.S. military operations
in Iraq - France and Russia.
It was Annan himself who told a BBC reporter in
September that the Coalition invasion of Iraq last year was "illegal." Last
week, it was suggested at congressional hearings that Benon Sevan, the U.N.
official in charge of overseeing the Oil for Food program, could have benefited
from the under-the-table deals with Saddam....."

Happy Thanksgiving....Tom

Bill Clinton "My Life" and Legacy cont.

The actual video was better. He was pointing at Jennings just as if he was getting ready to say those famous words again "I didn't have sexual relations with that woman". The man refuses to take credit for any of his faults and blames the vast RWC and Starr for everything.
The narcissism and sense of self is astounding. As some would say MUST reading.

The Associated Press
Nov. 19, 2004 - In a prime-time television
outburst, Bill Clinton ripped old nemesis Kenneth Starr and what the former
president portrayed as a gullible media eager to report every "sleazy thing"
leaked from a prosecutor bent on bringing him down.
The exchange came in an
interview with ABC news anchor Peter Jennings that aired Thursday night, hours
after Clinton opened his $165 million presidential library. Clinton blasted
Starr and spoke disdainfully of a national media that he suggested was complicit
in a scheme to ruin his presidency.
"No other president ever had to endure
someone like Ken Starr," Clinton said. "No one ever had to try to save people
from ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, and people in Haiti from a military
dictator that was murdering them, and all the other problems I dealt with, while
every day an entire apparatus was devoted to destroying him."
The former
president said he would go to his grave at peace that, while he had personal
failings, he never lied to the American people about his job as
Clinton added that he doesn't care about what his detractors think
about him. Jennings then said it seemed to him that Clinton did care.
former president responded, "You don't want to go here, Peter. You don't want to
go here. Not after what you people did and the way you, your network, what you
did with Kenneth Starr. The way your people repeated every, little sleazy thing
he leaked. No one has any idea what that's like."....more

Can we say petulant little child when refering to an ex-President? Hell yes!

Tsk, Tsk Koffi

Koffi Annan, Secretary-General of the UN is ass deep in alligators over the Oil-for-Food fraud. He is being investigated by his own UN independent commission (paid for with Oil-for-Food money) and led by Paul Volker. He and the UN is also under investigation by the Senate sub-committee chaired by Norm Coleman(R) with co-chair Carl Levin(D). At stake is a 21 Billion dollar fraud and kickback scheme. Graft, bribes, nepotism and all the makings of an HBO drama series. This is the man and the organization that can't come to a consensus on the definition of terrorism, refuses to call the murder of hundreds of thousands in Darfur genocide, has always been the world voice of anti-semetism and has such august members of their Human Rights Committee as Libya, Sudan (of Darfur infamy), Syria and Saudi Arabia. All known for their high standards of civil and humanitarian rights. Uganda, also a beacon of civilization is also in there as well.

And what does the mangement staff of the UN do about these atrocities and scandal? (via LGF)

NEW YORK - United Nations employees were reportedly preparing last night to
issue a historic vote of no confidence in scandal-plagued chief Kofi
The UN staff union, in what officials said was the first vote of its
kind in the UN’s history, was set to approve a resolution withdrawing its
support for the embattled Secretary-General and UN management.
Mr Annan has
been in the line of fire over a high-profile series of scandals including a UN
aid program that investigators said allowed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to
embezzle billions of dollars.
But staffers said the trigger for the
no-confidence measure was an announcement this week that Mr Annan had pardoned
the UN’s top oversight official, who was facing allegations of favouritism and
sexual harassment.

Nothing. But cover up a sexual harrassment we will vote "no confidence". Perhaps there should be a new UN Motto..."Billions for graft, but not one sou for copping a feel". Give me a freaking break. Send the whole bunch packing and say adieu.

I am not the only one that thinks that it is time to say bye-bye. With an extensive rundown of more UN perfidy, check out The Fourth Rail.

The New Cold War

Winds of Change.NET

Gee, I wish I had said this. Too good to pass up and should be read in full. I don't agree with all of the points made by Cicero but find this to be quite true.

O'Hehir ignores the corruption of the Europeans and their proxy the UN, who
make a mess of any meaningful application of hard or soft power. 'Soft power'
might be a euphemism for 'corruption' if it became absolute. Objectively corrupt
have become some offices of the EU and the UN: bowing at the terror master
Arafat's deathbed in France; nodding to Hamas, Saddam and Iranian nuke mullahs.
Soft power amounts to making deals. Anyone is a potential customer, regardless
of their moral standing or plain intent. Realpolitik has its place, but total
reliance on soft power may be Europe's weakness: they will deal
with the devil
, no matter who he is---the more devilish, the better the

"O'Hehir characterizes Europe as a wholly separate political universe spinning out of orbit from the United States, evolving into something smarter and with more to be optimistic about than America, which is still mired in history:...."

Considering the inflation rate, unemployment rate and GNP of the EU compared to the US I do not think smarter was the best choice of words.

A young Marine, wounded the day before in the face, returns to duty. Early in the day five of his unit are seriously wounded by a booby-trapped enemy body. The day before, one died of this type of incident. His brothers have been shot by white flag waving "insurgents". He and his squad have had to re-take a mosque that was taken the day before and had been re-occupied by the enemy and was producing small-arms fire on his squad. This is the picture that should be portrayed by a real reporter. Instead, we have another Abu Graib moment and an oppotunity for the left media to portray America and its soldiers as the enemy.

I can hear it now..."The inhumanity, the atrocities and the depths of perversion of the United States and its military Imperialist blah, blah blah". Margaret Hassan, Kenneth Begley and many others are just a footnote but let us see Iraqi prisoners with panties on their heads or a Marine doing what he needs to do to survive is a real atrocity!

Update: Bill at INDC Journal has much more. And he also link to me, thanks.

Update: Powerline has a powerful post about this also.

Belmont Club has a story that fits this Marines worldview and the context in which they are performing.

OpinionJournal - Wonder Land

OpinionJournal - Wonder Land

And so it goes. The meltdown of the MSM and the evaporation of what credibility is left continues. Where is the internal Rathergate investigation? Has it found the same black hole so many self investigations hide in, waiting for the interest to wane and finally coming out in the leisure section, last page below the Target ad?

Another UN Rant

It has been a week since the election and the gnashing of teeth and blame game, along with all that goes with it, continues. This redneck, knuckle-dragging, incestual, stupid Jesus freak is ready to move on. Or maybe I will revisit one of my pet peeves. Then again maybe I will rant about several of them.

Who gave France the right to interfere in the Ivory Coast? Did they take the global test? Blood for cocoa is not a good motto. Where is the 12 UN resolutions condeming this regime in the Ivory Coast? Don't ask us to bail your ass out again. Has Kofi declared this action legal?

The U.N. Security Council, in emergency session late Saturday, demanded an
immediate halt to all military action in Ivory Coast, and France blamed Ivory
Coast's leader directly.
"I think President (Laurent) Gbagbo is personally
responsible for what has happened," French Foreign Minister Michel Barnier told
France LCI television on Sunday, calling the violence "unexplainable,

Ivory Coast will ask the U.N. Security Council for action against France,
presidential spokesman Desire Tagro said. "We are faced with aggression by one
country against another country. We are going to inform the entire world ...
that France has come to attack us."

What is the UN doing in Sudan in the Darfur genocide? Yes, Sudan, one of the members of the Human Rights Commission of the UN. Human Rights watch has much to say about this disaster. Read the entire report and tell me what good the UN does in anything.

The United Nations has repeatedly characterized the practice of ethnic cleansing as a violation of international humanitarian law, and has demanded that perpetrators of ethnic cleansing be brought to justice. Read Ethnic Cleansing
The individual human rights abuses that characterize ethnic cleansing are
crimes against humanity and war crimes.
Human Rights Watch has found
credible evidence that the government of Sudan has purposefully sought to remove
by violent means the Masalit and Fur populations from large parts of Darfur in
operations that amount to ethnic cleansing. The attacks directed against
civilians, the burning of their villages, the mass killings of persons under
their control, the forced displacement of populations, the destruction of their
food stocks, livelihoods and the looting of their livestock by government and
militia forces are not merely a scorched earth tactic or an element of a
counterinsurgency strategy. Their aim appears to be to remove those ethnic
groups from large areas of the region and redistribute this population, mainly
into the vicinity of government-controlled towns where they can be concentrated,
confined and controlled.

The U.N. Commission on Human Rights: more heat than light.
More on the EU reaction and the African Unions reaction here and here. How about the US?....here.

Now that Kofi Annan and the UN are in the spotlight because of corruption due to the Oil-for-Food program, covering up sexual harrassment charges against some of their own and the UN's inability to make a difference in this world, what are we paying for? The 22 percent of the UN budget that we pay so Kofi can call the Iraqi war 'illegal'? And get rich with under the table deals? I don't think so.

Arthur Chrenkoff has a very good piece on another of the UN success stories. Kosovo is a real definition of a quagmire with a comparison to Iraq.

Ok, I lied

I had made a pledge to myself that I would not gloat or whine no matter the outcome of the Presidential race. I lied. So much for my mea culpa. Before I start my gloating and what may be called in some circles schadenfreude, I would like to offer some help for the poor, mis-understood and afflicted minority. We do need to reach out and offer whatever help is available. There is a group that can help in these trying times and should be used by the ones most in need. Now for my gloat. We won, you lost, it is not the end of the world and you should just get over it. Nanner, nanner nanner. Now for some advice:

  • If you are going to move to Canada or where ever, move. Don't just talk about it and then change your minds. That was your candidates problem. Take a stand dammit.
  • The Kool-aid is not a healthy choice. Do not just parrot the DU and Kos. People will laugh at you and and you will think they are laughing with you.
  • Get out more and expand your horizons. Visit exotic places and taste the culture of the aboriginies in the "middle world". There is a vast and varied world out there that needs to be explored. Ohio, Iowa and the unknown expanses of Texas and Alaska. Think of the adventure of being one of the first in your circle to discover the unwashed and stupid masses that inhabit the land known as it was in old maps "Beware, here be Dragons" and find out that armadillos and horned toads aren't really dragons and people from New Mexico are actually Americans. The South is not really an inbred re-run of Deliverence and most everyone in the red states really do know how to read.
  • The statement that I hear the most is "I don't know how we lost. I don't know anyone who voted for Bush" ( see above).
  • Get rid of the people and ideas that lost you the election. Michael Moore, George Soros, the Hollywood/Rap elites, Shrum and McCaulife and your candidates.
  • Try not to gather anymore endorsements from terrorist groups. It doesn't look good. Ranting from the likes of Sid Blumenthal, Dan Rather, E.J.Dionne, Jane Smiley and others ad nauseum is not good. People have long memories.
  • Do not send someones sister to another country to campaign against one of our allies in their election and at least drop the UN as a global partner. That global test is a real belly laugh now but was not funny then. France and Germany are not our allies. Deal with it. Don't call what allies we have, bribed, coerced and bought. They have long memories.
  • Don't send a message to our fighting men and women that they are fighting the wrong war, at the wrong time and in the wrong place. They have long memories too. Ask the Swifties and the POW's. They also vote.

  • It is not "We just failed to get our message out". Your message was heard loud and clear and rejected by 52 percent of the voters. We really did understand where you stand and dis-agreed. Deal with it.
  • Try to find viable candidates who believe in something and have the fortitude to make decisions based on what is best for the country and not on focus groups and the latest poll.
  • Listen to some of the ones in your party who reluctantly voted for Bush.

Whining and Victimhood

I made a little promise to myself before the election that I would try not to overtly gloat if my side won and not to openly whine and complain if my side lost. My side won and I will try not to gloat too much. I visit many blogs and read many news sources. I also visit bulletin boards and post there. I have never seen the like of whining and claims of victimization by the losers in my life.

The Democratic Party and its surrogates and followers are blaming everything on everybody but their own values and tactics. It wasn't their candidate, it was the religious fanatics on the right and the homophobes. It wasn't their lack of a positive message, it was the stupidity of the unwashed masses that just "didn't get it". Michael Moore told the truth but the Swift Boat Vets lied. The main stream press were shown to be openly partisan and just another branch of the DNC and they just can't believe people would notice. They didn't realize that us hicks in the red states could even read and comprehend. They thought that the Hollywood/Rap elites would overwhelm us with their superior intellect and just can't deal with it when it turns out not to be.

We weren't supposed to notice how the left denegrated Bush for his faith and then openly campaigned in black churches and openly pandered to the minority black community. Now they blame it on the religious values crowd for losing.

The DNC and Kerry did everything they could to run down our real allies and pandered to France and Germany openly and thought we would not notice. The scandal ridden UN was touted as our savior and if we were ever going to resort to self defense it would only be after an attack and then only if we passed a global test.

Kerry waffled while Bush remained steady and nobody knew where Kerry was coming from, much less where he was going. Kerry never answered questions about the truth of his discharge, withheld his DD-214 and refused to sign the 180 release and they can't understand why we didn't trust him to be our Commander-in-Chief. The last thing the DNC and Kerry wanted to talk about was his voting record in the Senate.

The left seems to forget the old saying "If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything" but that we would fall for Anything but BUSH. Very few elections are won by solely being against something or someone without being for something.

Instead of looking through the window to see their enemies and the reason for the loss, they would do well to look in the mirror and figure out where they went wrong and when. They have been hijacked and don't know it because the pilots are the hijackers. And the ground crew and flight controllers are in on it too. It's time for the passengers to take back the plane because it is headed for a mountain.

What I Fear Most

Some thoughts on this election. What I fear:
If Kerry/Edwards win:

  1. If it is a squeaker, four years of listening to accusations of voter fraud from the Republicans.
  2. Four years of the call for Kerry to release his military records and if he does (which I doubt), the call for impeachment.
  3. Republicans saying the election was stolen (see #1).
  4. Hanging Iraq, Afghanistan, and Israel out to dry.
  5. The UN becoming the fourth branch of our government, joining the executive, legislative and judicial branches.
  6. The appointment of more activist judges to the federal bench and to the Supreme Court.
  7. Increased taxes to pay for cradle to grave everything.
  8. The gloating and continued positive spin of the MSM on the Kerry Presidency.
  9. The rehabilitation of the NYT and CBS by a forgetful people.
  10. A return to treating terrorism as a law enforcement function and what happens if we capture UBL instead of killing him and his associates.
  11. An end to pre-emption and back to responding only if attacked. An occasional Tomahawk on a mud hut.
  12. John Kerry, when faced with tough and unpopular decisions, waffling and doing nothing.
  13. Teresa Heinz Kerry as First Lady.
  14. Gloating from UBL and all of the Hamas, Hezbollah and the terror community about how they deposed a President.
  15. ACORN and others will not be prosecuted because....duh.
  16. The Cabinet would look like Clintons.
  17. The Patriot Act will be emasculated.
  18. More cuts in the military and intelligence. An exodus of troops from the services because....duh.
  19. Without a friendly legislature there will continue to be a deadlock.
  20. Kofi Annan will win the Nobel Piece (of the pie) Award

If Bush/Cheney win:

  1. If it is a squeaker, four more years of hearing that the election was stolen due to fraud and disenfranchisement. (see#1 and #3 above).
  2. Continued filibusters of federal judges.
  3. Bush continuing trying to get along with Ted Kennedy.
  4. The MSM continuing to put a negative spin on every acheivement.
  5. (See #9 above).
  6. Impeachment moves by the Democrats for whatever they can think of.
  7. An even more left wing replacement for Sen. Daschle as Minority leader ala Pelosi. Teddy? nah but close.
  8. ACORN and others will not be prosecuted for fear it would seem partisan.
  9. NAACP won't like us anymore but will keep their tax exempt status because (see#8).
  10. In an effort to be "fair and balanced" I am failing to get there.
  11. Liberal judges will not retire because of which party is in control.
  12. Several Supremes will retire because of health or whatever and there will be a replay of Bork and Thomas hearings.
  13. Without a 60 vote margin in the Senate, there will continue to be a deadlock.
  14. There will be a healthcare crisis because of the shortage of medications for Democrats who will really need medication if they lose.
  15. GWB will continue to starve children and the elderly and kill innocent freedom fighters in foreign lands.
  16. Michael Moore will make more films.
  17. Alec Baldwin will still not move and George Soros will really not enter a monastery.
  18. Emimem will probably run for congress. And win.
  19. John Edwards with sue the aforementioned drug companies.
  20. David Boies will still be arguing in the Supreme Court in 2008, trying to get a recount in Miami-Dade County.
