Warning: avert eyes if you have one ounce of sympathy for the savages that make up the Islamic jihadists.

“Muhammed “Splodydope” Muhammed Muhammed prematurely detonated Thursday morning during his morning prayers when he failed to execute his exit strategy from his favorite goat.”
Poor Muhammed. Now he won’t get his 72 murdering, suicidal prostitutes.
And for those illiterate splodydope buddies of Muhammed, here is something the 2 out of 10 semi-literates among your buddies in Goat-lovers’ Cave, Iraq might be able to read to you:

Check out Stop the ACLU for lotsa links.

The Stop the ACLU Blogburst usually has a suggested topic (thanks, Gribbit) but this week, it’s a free fire zone, as it were, so I thought I’d take a step back and look at the ACLU from a slightly different angle.
First, I’d like to differentiate between organizations that have fallen from their origins and those like the ACLU that have stayed true to their purpose. Bodies like Congress, the YMCA and the UN (YMCA lumped in with Congress and the UN?!?!? 🙂 have quite obviously degenerated from their original purposes. The ACLU, however has remained true to its founders’ goals. While I applaud the ACLU for steadfastly standing firm in its purposes, let me note that the founders of the ACLU firmly believed that their communist philosophy would eventually overcome American capitalism and democracy, and the organization has remained true to both the goals and the methods of the founders.
ACLU founder Roger Baldwin stated in 1935, “Communism is the goal.” A year before, he had said: “When the power of the working class is once achieved, as it has been in the Soviet Union, I am for maintaining it by any means necessary.” Then in 1978, Baldwin said, “We’ve depended on the courts as the vehicle by which we assert our interpretation of the Constitution.” _1_
And the goals and methods have remained: to destroy the American experiment via corruption of the Constitution via the courts. The gains that the ACLU made in its plans through the corruption of the First Amendment, with the aid of the activist Warren SCOTUS, in suppression of Christian speech in the public arena and corruption of “free speech” into the contradictory (well, contradictory of the First Amendment itself) “free expression” has aided it well in its goal of using cultural jiu jitsu on a free and open society. By using our own values against us, via warping their meanings and winning the media war to make their interpretation popular, the ACLU has been instrumental in creating a culture that welcomes the barbarians who seek to tear it down. All in the name of tolerance and “free expression.”
Indeed, one can see how well the ACLU, which was at the forefront of the fight to redefine “free speech” as “free expression,” has won in its primary goal of changing the battleground in its favor by simply reading last week’s ACLU blogburst on the topic of the ACLU’s opposition to the Anti-Flag-Desecration Amendment being pushed in Congress, now. Many of the bloggers who posted on the topic essentially supported the ACLU’s position, because they have been brainwashed into believing that the Warren court’s invention of a right of “free expression” out of thin air is actually what the First Amendment says.
It does not. And in fact, until the Warren court, “freedom of expression” had been consistently rejected, first by Madison himself and all the way up until the early 1960s activist court made new Constitutional law ex nihilo, as this representative quote from Justice Felix Frankfruter in 1951 illustrates:
“The historic antecedents of the First Amendment preclude the notion that its purpose was to give unqualified immunity to every expression that touched on matters within the range of political interest. . . .” _2_
Madison himself noted that “free expression” was not a substitute fro “free speech.” If it were, then a separate “freedom of the press” would be redundant.
No, under any reasonable person’s reading of the Constitution, desecration of the nation’s flag is not a First Amendment issue at all. Ask Madison, who believed such a thing was criminal.
But, using just this one example, it’s easy to see how the ACLU has won at least a major battle when folks who know the ACLU is a highly destructive element in our society get steamed about flag burning as “wrong” but somehow “protected” by… the ACLU’s redefinition of the First Amendment.
See? Cultural jiu jitsu. Using our tolerance and belief (largely created with the input and direct aid of the ACLU) in protection of “free expression” as equivalent of “free speech.”
Try this: teach your dog to “speak.” Can your dog then “speak” intelligibly on matters of public policy and thus be protected in its “speech” by the First Amendment? No. Because it’s not speaking, it’s just “expressing” itself.
And that’s just about as equivalent a description as one can make of “free expression” absent words, intelligible speech. Speech, specifically political (and referencing an earlier portion of the First Amendment, religious) speech is protected by the First Amendment.
Is it protected speech if it is intelligible, political (or religious) and inflammatory?
The courts have held that it is not always so.
Is it preotected speech if it is intelligible and inflammatory and neither religious nor political?
The courts have held that it is not so far more often in these sorts of cases.
Is it even speech if it’s not… SPEECH?
Duh. Of course not, unless one is a judge or justice brought up under the propaganda of the ACLU and its ilk.
And that is the most serious threat the ACLU poses: dumbing down, watering down, diluting and polluting the Constitution with the ACLU’s “interperetation” on the way to its genuine ultimate goal of supplanting our republican government with a socialist-communist state.

This is a rare personal request for help

Oh, it’s not for me, though God knows how much help I need. 🙂 Here’s the story:

Daughter completes grad school. Gets job. Moves to new town. Goes to work. Discovers that the HR person who extended the job to her had, uhm, not been in communication with the person my daughter was to work for.

The job does not exist. HR guy seems to be dodging her.

Bummer.

Running out of $$, spinning wheels, running as fast as she can toward another job.

Anyone know of work for someone with a psych undergrad and sociology grad degree in the OKC area? (Actually, “A day job is one you take to pay the bills so you can do what you really want, like play in a band, or invent relativity” would seem to apply at this point…

Leave a comment or e- me.

Congratulations! You scored a super 71%!
Cool, calm and powerful. Whilst your actual super abilities may not be anything too dazzling, you have earnt the respect of both friends and enemies in response to your amazing fighting skills, strategic combat and experience.

Luckily you have access to the greens which can fund all your majorly cool gadgets, vehicles and weapons! Also, you’re reluctant but still accepting to the idea of having a teammate/side-kick, which just makes everything a whole lotta fun, doesn’t it now!

On the down side, you’ve probably suffered some sort of trauma at a young age (that’s why we don’t talk to the old man near the swings, kids).

Similar to the Wolverine, your past is a base for your current motivation, undertaking some kind of personal vow in search of justice.

All in all though, you’re one tough nut. There’re not a lot of people who have the minerals to go up against you, and you’re experienced enough not to get cocky and let the little things like never finding happiness get you down!

UPDATE: I just downloaded the ~62MB mp3 file of the Ninth. One-a my very favs. What a treat (even though the direction of the choral *an freude* section—naturally my fav—was a bit choppy)!

Beethoven’s symphonies 6, 7 and 8 are ready for download NOW!

Number Nine available sometime Thursday (perhaps late tonight for USA downloaders… 🙂

*sigh* Once again I have been too eager. Number 9 will be available starting either late tonight (for U.S. and further west–up to a point 🙂 or Friday, July 1, as per:

“Symphony 9 will be broadcast on Thursday 30th June, and available to download from Friday 1st July to Thursday 7th July.”

I have downloaded and appreciated the very credible performances of numbers 1-5, as offered by the BBC. I fully expect these to be of the same caliber. I’ve also listened to the download of #6 last night. Worth burning off and saving, listening to some more. And more…

(Saudi Arabia must be destroyed.)

I’ve voiced before that I’ve been bothered for some time about the priorities in the GWOT. The President’s recent speech at Fort Bragg highlights my misgivings.

Yes, I am hopeful that eventually the price paid in blood and treasure in Iraq will be worthwhile to America in ways more substantive than simply “fighting them there so we don’t have to fight them here,” but the way Bremmer botched his job made that difficult for some time.

I have no doubt whatsoever that our efforts there have already reaped an untold wealth of benefits for the Iraqi people themselves, but I still can help but wonder if the price paid in blood and treasure might have been better spent destroying the primary base of funding for Islamic jihadist terrorism.

Note (my emphasis added):

“Our military reports that we have killed or captured hundreds of foreign fighters in Iraq who have come from Saudi Arabia and Syria, Iran, Egypt, Sudan, Yemen, Libya and others.”–President George W. Bush, 06/28/2005

I think it was a bit disingenuous of President Bush to have merely included Saudi Arabia in a long laundry list of those contributing to the terrorist base since, in addition to providing a substantial recruitment base of Wahabbists, Saudi Arabia is a HUGE source of funding for terrorism in the world. It seems that SA would long since have fallen under the Bush Doctrine stated in September of 2001:

“We will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make. Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.”–President George W. Bush, 09/20/2001

So, the question remains: Why is Saudi Arabia still being run by the Wahabbists who preach jihad and fund these Islamic jihadist terrorists?
