From smith2004:
(To tune of the Kennel Ration jingle)
My God's better that your god.
My God's better than yours.
My God's better 'cause He's omnipotent.
My God's better than yours.

From a description of GW at smith2004:

Personally, I'd like to go with "unprincipled loathsome squamous non-Euclidean pile of buzzard barf, vulture vomit and hyena diarrhea, festering vilely in his foul pit of unleashed Statism, a disgrace to Texas, the White House and the human race, a viper hissing vilely at the Constitution, a nauseating shambling horror whose aversion to the principles on which this country was founded makes Dracula's feelings about the True Cross look like purest oogly love, and a genetic wreck with whom even the Deep Ones would not deign to cross-breed."

But I'm trying to be nice.

Paul Hein at - It Has Happened Here! - not only can it happen here, it already has! [lew]

Many have wondered how a people who produced Beethoven, Goethe, Schiller, Bach, Brahms, etc., could also have given rise to Nazism. An evidently cultured and advanced civilization giving birth to a monster! How could it happen?

Sinclair Lewis even wrote a novel about it: It Can't Happen Here, in 1935. Of course, he was wrong. It has happened here.

If you have ever wondered how it happened in Germany, look around. The evidence is everywhere, but it isn't necessarily dramatic or obvious.

Matthew Caserta at New York Press - On Board: In the new world order, all I want is a job - Mr. Caserta has given in to the New World Order. Not. Satire folks. [lew]

Garry Reed, The Loose Cannon Libertarian - Iraqi Horror Picture Show - take a step back from the war coverage and notice that the Amerikan government made Saddam Hussein and the Islamist terrorists.

Fred on Everything - Marriage, Bubonic Plague, And Infected Warts: If You Have A Choice, Go With The Warts - Divorce is hell. For men. I told my wife a while back that if she ever does this to me, I will stop working and either go to jail or die fighting the cops who attempt to apprehend me. The state will not tell me how much I must pay to support her. Remember, folks, you are free. No one can force you to do anything except fall down (though most people are willing to do a lot to avoid being forced to fall down). [birdman]

Abraham: "If your wages are not withheld and you fail to pay your child support, the State will garnish your pay, slap liens on your property, intercept your tax refunds, report you to credit agencies, discontinue your driver's license, suspend your professional and business permits, hold you in contempt of court, put your face on a wanted poster, throw you in jail, and deny you food stamps. But if your ex doesn't spend that very same support on the children, the State will do. . . nothing."

It gets worse. There is, for example, "imputed income." This means that your child support will be based not on what your children need, not on what you earn, but on what the court decides you could earn.

"The Project for the New American Century [PNAC] is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America and for the world; that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle; and that too few political leaders today are making the case for global leadership." Their Statement of Principles page is signed by Elliott Abrams, Gary Bauer, William J. Bennett, Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, Eliot A. Cohen, Midge Decter, Paula Dobriansky, Steve Forbes. These are the architects of the forever war of Amerikan empire.
