Bacon Explosion

Posted on 29 January 2009 by Ed Z

Two pounds of bacon + two pounds of sausage = explosion.  I can
only imagine.  I’m having chest pains just
thinking about it

This recipe is the Bacon
Explosion, modestly called by its inventors “the BBQ Sausage
Recipe of all Recipes.” The instructions for constructing this
massive torpedo-shaped amalgamation of two pounds of bacon woven
through and around two pounds of sausage and slathered in barbecue
sauce first appeared last month on the Web site of a team of
Kansas City competition barbecuers. They say a diverse collection
of well over 16,000 Web sites have linked to the recipe,
celebrating, or sometimes scolding, its excessiveness. A fresh
audience could be ready to discover it on Super Bowl Sunday.

Don’t forget to send the recipe to your favorite vegetarian,

Stimulus Scam

Posted on 28 January 2009 by Ed Z

I’m not sure how else to explain this, but our Democrat led government wants
to use this economic crisis to steal money from you and pay off their
constituents to secure power for years to come.

This economic stimulus package is anything but.  This will not help us
get through this.  In fact, this will raise the bar for spending going
forward.  The Wall
Street Journal
maps out the pork and concludes:

This is supposed to be a new
era of bipartisanship, but this bill was written based on the wish
list of every living — or dead — Democratic interest group. As
Speaker Nancy Pelosi put it, "We won the election. We wrote
the bill." So they did.

need to read the WSJ piece.  You need to see what they’re trying to push

Drudge is
reporting that 355 million is going towards STD prevention.  How is this
going to help the economy?

is a link to the full text of the bill

And our President, who promised change, who said things would be
different — transparent.  Well it’s business as usual.

Shock: 61 Former Gitmo Detainees Return to Terrorism

Posted on 14 January 2009 by Ed Z

is this a surprise to anyone

The Pentagon said on Tuesday
that 61 former detainees from its military prison camp at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, appear to have returned to terrorism since
their release from custody.

Pentagon spokesman Geoff
Morrell said 18 former detainees are confirmed as "returning
to the fight" and 43 are suspected of having done in a report
issued late in December by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Just innocent, misunderstood people.  Newsflash: 
they’d probably kill you the moment they’re released if given the opportunity.

The Path to Another 9/11

Posted on 12 January 2009 by Ed Z

Chrystia Freeland, the US managing editor of the Financial Times believes,
like many liberals, waterboarding is torture.  In fact, she goes on to say
that she wouldn’t use waterboarding to save the nine planeloads of people. 
has the story.

Chrystia Freeland wouldn’t.
The US managing editor of the Financial Times made the stunning
statement during the course of a classic Morning Joe dust-up
today. Joe Scarborough, with help from tag-team partner Pat
Buchanan, went after Freeland on her opposition to waterboarding
and similar interrogation techniques. At one point Scarborough
called Freeland "sophomoric." Later, the exasperated MJ
host gave his guest some of the same treatment to which he’d
recently been subjected by Zbigniew Brzezinski, telling Freeland
"you have no idea what you’re talking about."

You can see the video and get a transcript via the link above.

If we allow this type of thinking to continue to resonate
throughout the media and pretend to be the voice of Americans another 9/11 will
be right around the corner.
