What’s with this test? heh

Ha! Remember I said something like “couldn’t be more centrist“? Well, Wonder Woman beat me to pieces on that. heh 
And yeh, I know the actual quote is, ” I’m just about as centrist as can be.”
Take the test.
If you do not feel you owe a debt of gratitude to veterans of our military who served with honor protecting your liberties, I just don’t want to know you.
Lashed by the not-so-thinly-disguised disdain of the Loony Left Moonbat Brigade and the Mass Media Podpeople’s Army, scorned by the Great Unwashed of Academia, our military personnel serve the primary legitimate function of government: protection of its citizens from outlaws and outlaw regimes which would seek to harm us.
For that alone—quite apart from the hardships they may endure in service—they deserve our gratitude, respect and clear and unequivocal expressions of thanks.
So, to all who have honorably served or are honorably serving in our country’s military, Thank You. And to the families of those who have given their lives so that we may breathe free, no thanks is great enough, no honor is higher than the one bought and paid for by your sacrifice.
God bless you one and all.
We now return to our regular programming of snark aimed primarily at those in the Loony Left Moonbat Brigade and the Mass Media Podpeople’s Army—you know: those who just won’t “get” the point of this post. Not because they can’t but because they choose not to.
So, I’m griping about socks…
“I know I put a pair of these in the wash! Now I have one white sock of one kind and one of another,  They’re different shapes, sizes and thicknesses.  Arrggghhh! I’ll be walking around unbalanced!”
And Wonder Woman gives me The Look™ that says, “So? This is news?” (aieee! My eyes! My eyes!)
What?!? Moi “unbalanced”?  Surely you jest!

More deceit from the ACLU, via Whizbang!:
The ACLU released a FBI memo that contains a prisoners report of a Guantanamo guard flushing a Koran.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An FBI agent wrote in a 2002 document made public on Wednesday that a detainee held at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, had accused American jailers there of flushing the Koran down a toilet.

The Pentagon said the allegation was not credible.
…The newly released document, dated Aug. 1, 2002, contained a summary of statements made days earlier by a detainee, whose name was redacted, in two interviews with an FBI special agent, whose name also was withheld, at the Guantanamo prison for foreign terrorism suspects.

The American Civil Liberties Union released the memo and other FBI documents it obtained from the government under court order through the Freedom of Information Act.

I’ve seen various sites claim that Newsweek is vindicated, nothing could be further from the truth.–Whizbang!
Note, in other accounts, that the detainee who initially made the claim has recanted. Well, of course.  Consider the spin-source—ACLU: Any Criminal Lie Used.  See the rest at Whizbang!

I’ve been looking forward to this one.  A couple of recipes I’ve wanted to see hit the blogosphere’s premier food lovers’ group are in this one…
Check it out over at Fresh as a Daisy.
My own offering, a CCCCCC recipe (just go; it’s goooooood), a great flank steak recipe, and—oh, just go!  There’s just too much good stuff to stick around here (unless you wanna pick up my Mocking Wussie Waldorf Salads Salad recipe before you leave.  🙂
That’s “Intelligent Design”
Every now and then I run across another wannabe enrollee in the Darwinist Seminary who insists that Intelligent Design scientific theorists are “loony right-wing illiterate wacko creationists.”
Just goes to show you that the Darwinist religion is as peopled with sub-literate wackos as the Creationists are.
Via Jerry Pournelle, here’s one of the better popular explanations of Intelligent Design thinking I’ve seen: “Intelligent Decline, Revisited” by Mustafa Akyol.  A sample:

In a nutshell, Intelligent Design is the theory that argues life on Earth is the product of natural laws, chance and intelligence. Darwinism, on the other hand, accepts only the first two causes, because, according to materialist philosophy, intelligence does not exist unless it evolves over time from mindless matter.

There’s more, and it’s all easily accessible and calmly presented.
