Here’s an apparently award-winning ad campaign for the World Wildlife Fund:
If you can’t read the tagline up there it is:
“The tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11. The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it.”
Absolutely no respect for the people who were trapped and had to choose between burning to death or jumping 105 floors down. No respect for all the firemen and policemen who responded and ended up crushed under tons of rubble. No respect for anything other than their trivialization of a major terrorist attack.
Thanks to AdFreak for noting this.
And if you’d like to tell the World Wildlife Fund what you think of their ad campaign, its http://www.wwf.org
1. We all know that the state governors coming to the Federal government for bailouts is simply a buck-passing process. They are looking at reduced revenues and instead of being straightforward and saying “We love government and are raising your taxes to pay for it”, they get to hide behind the cover of having the Feds print money and send it to them by the back door. They know this is a fraud, the feds know it is a fraud, I know its a fraud. What’s still shocking to me is that there apparently are a whole host of Americans who don’t understand that this isn’t something they can get for “free”. Perhaps is a failing of my imagination. But I would love for somebody who thinks that this is a good thing to attempt some explanation about how this isn’t just a honking pile of horse feces.
2. See this picture of the guns that the terrorists in India used to slaughter hundreds?
These are not the standard third-world AK-47’s which can be put together with tinfoil and toothpicks and still kill people. These are HK MP5s, and as Anatreptic notes:
This isn’t a black market gun. While people living in caves in Afghanistan can and do manufacture Kalashnikovs by hand, the MP5 is a sophisticated weapon requiring high tech metallurgy and other technologies for their production.
Pakistan Ordinance Factories manufactures these weapons under license from HK, and they are under the control of the Pakistani Ministry of Defense.
The implications of Pakistani involvement seem rather hard to miss. Of course the Pakistanis are calling it an attack by Jews. Again, my jaw drops but knowing third-world countries and the absolute media control they have it seems rather more possible that they can force-feed this kind of crap to their population.
3. Following along in the jaw-dropping stupidity we have the latest propaganda drop from the psychiatrists that 1 in 5 of the population between 19 and 25 is crazy. And that goes up to half if you include alcohol and drug abuse. What we really have is a whole generation that needed to have been smacked on their bottoms at age 5 and taught some manners. These completely self-involved dimwits have a lot of surprises ahead. Their grandparents (the baby boomers) are racking up huge debts and expect these little honkers to pony up the cash when they can no longer control their bowels. And any suggestion that the boomers will not get their social security will generate a firestorm that will make the protests about the Iraq war feel like a kindergarten nap session.
Yeah – there’s no possibility of any terrorism threat here – move along, move along:
Police confirmed Wednesday that they found about a pound of sodium cyanide in a Denver hotel room where the body of a Canadian man was discovered earlier this week.
Police spokesman John White identified the white powder as sodium cyanide, the crystal form of cyanide. Fire officials say they found a bottle containing about a pound of the white powder, or between a pint and a quart by volume.
The medical examiner’s office said it is awaiting test results to determine whether cyanide killed 29-year-old Saleman Abdirahman Dirie, of Ottawa, Canada.
His body was found Monday inside Room 408 at The Burnsley Hotel, which is about four blocks from the state Capitol. White said Dirie had been dead for several days. Friends told The Ottawa Sun that he was dead six days before he was discovered.
After all he’s just a dead Canadian, right? Well…..
An online threat posted in July by a man with a similar name warned of death.
“Having the bible in one hand, and a bread in the other hand, is not a correct thing! Kill Them , Kill them, Kill them, that is my massage (sic),!” read the posting by Abdirahman Dirie on the ‘Solmali’s for Jesus’ Blog.It was not clear if Abdirahman Dirie and Saleman Abdirahman Dirie are the same person.
But of course – therre is absolutely no suspicion that anything at all was wrong. People with a pound of cyanide are as common as fleas on a homeless dog – at least according to the spokespeople:
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force is assisting in the investigation but FBI spokeswoman Kathy Wright said the incident has no apparent connection to terrorism.
Authorities have not listed Dirie’s occupation or said why he may have had cyanide. White said sodium cyanide is readily available in stores and is the main ingredient in rat poison.
Police have said Dirie’s death appears to be an isolated incident and it doesn’t appear to have anything to do with the upcoming Democratic National Convention here.
The FBI said Wednesday that there’s probably no reason for them to go back to the fourth- floor room at the Burnsley Hotel, where Dirie, 29, of Canada, was found Monday.
Move along – Move along – nothing to see here.
Apparently somebody is continuing to blog under the name listed above:
Bloggers were abuzz Wednesday over a threatening posting by a man with nearly the same name as Dirie.
“Having the bible in one hand, and a bread in the other hand, is not a correct thing! Kill Them, Kill them, Kill them, that is my massage!” read the comment by Abdirahman Dirie, on July 11.
The bloggers were discussing violence against Somali Christians, and Dirie apparently was taking the side of the Somali Muslims.
But the blogger Abdirahman Dirie was online again Wednesday, meaning it couldn’t be the same person, unless someone had taken the name as a joke.
Was there a possible connection between the death and last month’s fiery blog posting?
“We can’t comment on where the investigation might be leading us,” Wright said.
1. Yes – cyanide is something people use to kill themselves – as well as rats and other vermin.
2. Then why have they already released the body when all official sources say the cause of death is unknown?
3. And when will these guys learn to stop rushing around and the first thing out of their mouths is “no terrorism suspected”? Just how stupid are we to pretend to be here? A Somali Muslim from Canada with a bunch of cyanide – wouldn’t somebody with half a brain even have a suspicion?
Can’t you just hear the frustation of the angry, dissatisfied leftie in this little missive:
The apparent indifference in the voters to the fact that we torture tells me that people are not paying attention to what our country does. And the support of the Iraq war suggests that most families remain untouched, since our soldiers are all volunteers.
But has anyone considered the possibility that if we continue on this path, the military draft will return?
Our country was aroused to protest the Vietnam War because all had to serve. Democracy can only survive if the voters inform themselves about the issues and the candidates.
I’ll make a little guess and say that with the name Marjorie this person is of the female persuasion. Interesting how she can say that all had to serve when she was never, ever subject to the draft. So right away it was possible for her to attend Bezerkley and smoke dope and put flowers in her hair and march against the war – she was never subject to service. In fact all the smelly, dope-smoking idiots at college during that time, men and women, were exempt from the draft. Again – what was that about all having to serve?
Lots of people were subject to the draft – men only – and lots of men and women also volunteered to serve their country knowing that a war was on and that they might be killed. Just as lots of men and women stand up and volunteer today with the same prospect.
It wasn’t the fact that there was a draft that ultimately lost the war. It was the fact that America lost its will and decided they could just abandon our allies and the sacrifice of our soldiers. But right up to today you can talk to those who served and while they admit that they were not lead and used in a way that allowed America to win, the vast majority are proud of their service.
But you and your anti-war idiots did accomplish something with your cheering for the Communist dictators who were killing our own sons – you were able to get America to lose a war. To sacrifice all that blood and treasure and then literally turn our backs on the South Vietnamese in their time of ultimate sacrifice and watch them be slaughtered. While the Democrat Congress purposely voted to refuse them the money and arms that they wished to fight on their own.
And you want to do the same exact thing today. And as long as I have breath I will do everything I can to make sure you do not.
When President Bush says:
Speaking before the Knesset, Bush said that “some people” believe the United States “should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.”
“We have heard this foolish delusion before,” Bush said. “As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if I could only have talked to Hitler, all this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
And you imediately get:
“This is bulls***, this is malarkey. This is outrageous, for the president of the United States to go to a foreign country, to sit in the Knesset … and make this kind of ridiculous statement.” Joe Biden
In a separate statement, Sen. John F. Kerry said that Bush “is still playing the disgusting and dangerous political game Karl Rove perfected, which is insulting to every American and disrespectful to our ally Israel. George Bush should be making Israel secure, not slandering Barack Obama from the Knesset.”
“There is no escaping what the president is doing,” said Durbin, who supports Obama. “It is an attack on Sen. Obama’s position that we should not be avoiding even those we disagree with when it comes to negotiations and diplomacy.”
Durbin called Bush’s remarks “unfair and really unfortunate.”
Squeal little piggy, squeal.
