Christmas 2006

So what's new? Since I've been on hiatus awhile.....

I saw these four ads right next to each other on :
Viagara -35 (100mg) pills
Samsung SP-S4243 42 in. EDTV
Vivd Video Extra Thin 3 Pack
Sunrise Medical Rehab Shower Chair
Dennis Prager was o-ffended (think of Bugs Bunny saying it and you'll smile) by Keith Ellison's plan to take his incoming oath of office on the Koran. A sample:

In fact, many of these people argue it will be a good thing because Muslims around the world will see what an open society America is and how much Americans honor Muslims and the Koran.

This argument appeals to all those who believe that one of the greatest goals of America is to be loved by the world, and especially by Muslims because then fewer Muslims will hate us (and therefore fewer will bomb us).

But these naive people do not appreciate that America will not change the attitude of a single American-hating Muslim by allowing Ellison to substitute the Koran for the Bible. In fact, the opposite is more likely: Ellison's doing so will embolden Islamic extremists and make new ones, as Islamists, rightly or wrongly, see the first sign of the realization of their greatest goal -- the Islamicization of America.

When all elected officials take their oaths of office with their hands on the very same book, they all affirm that some unifying value system underlies American civilization. If Keith Ellison is allowed to change that, he will be doing more damage to the unity of America and to the value system that has formed this country than the terrorists of 9-11. It is hard to believe that this is the legacy most Muslim Americans want to bequeath to America. But if it is, it is not only Europe that is in trouble.

When I read this, there were over 1000 comments at Of course, the conversation wasn't limited to conservative sites. This link had lots of alternative suggestions, including the following:
Dennis Prager, you are moron of the highest order. The point of swearing an oath on the bible is that apparently, if you believe in the bible, it will make your oath more binding. If you're forced to swear an oath on a book that has no relevance to you, then you may as well use a copy of Juggs magazine.

And don't forget Gwyneth Paltrow's comments about the British being far superior dining companions. Compare and contrast with these two examples of British culture.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
