Quote of the Day

Lady Liberty

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Maybe she's really a libertarian ...

This just in concerning the further exploits of media whore Cindy Sheehan.

BUSH PROTESTING MOM CALLS FOR 'ISRAEL OUT OF PALESTINE'; VOWS NOT TO PAY TAXES

Anti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan, whose soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq, is calling for Bush's "impeachment," and for Israel to get out of Palestine!"You get America out of Iraq and Israel out of Palestine and you'll stop the terrorism," Sheehan declares ...
Right you are, Cindy. And if I simply give my wallet to the thug in the subway station at 3:00 a.m., I'll stop a robbery. Hell, commit suicide before the assailant pulls the trigger and you'll stop the murder.

She goes on to say:

"My son was killed in 2004. I am not paying my taxes for 2004. You killed my son, George Bush, and I don't owe you a penny...you give my son back and I'll pay my taxes. Come after me (for back taxes) and we'll put this war on trial."
I want to offer a public apology (sort of) to my blogmate and owner of this site, Bathus, to whom I have argued repeatedly that grieving mothers of sons lost in combat must be forgiven their subsequent defeatest idiocy.

This broad's cracked.

Poor Cindy misses a few points, and you'd think some of the sleazaball democrats in Congress exploiting her moronic protest in another flaccid attempt to embarass Bush would have clued her in. After all, each left wing kook that gets a lot of coverage from his or her fellow travelers in the left wing media reflects poorly on the Party. Not that she would have listened (did George Soros or Michael Moore?), but that's another story.

The first point is that, Ms. Sheehan's pathological narcissism notwithstanding, the war has been on "trial" in the court of public opinion for years, with the left wing media acting as prosecutor and the right wing media playing defense (ineptly, but that, too, is another story). Hollywood liberals, some of whom are shall we say slightly more photogenic than mama, were protesting this thing before it even started. Unless this idiot thinks the entire country was waiting three years for her to attack Bush and the conflict in Iraq and the wider war against the Great Redundancy - i.e., Islamofascism. If she exhibited this same solipsism as a mother, no wonder her kid ran off and joined the army. It appears Casey exhibited his own defiance in the face of mom's monomaniacal desire to become an ugly Jane Fonda.

The second point is that the bulk of the federal income tax goes to education, health, farm subsidies, unemployment benefits, highways, and a variety of socialist programs large and small that are close to Ms. Shithead's heart and the hearts of her hairy, smelly fellow protestors in Crawford. If you don't pay your taxes, Cindy, PBS will suffer before the army does.

But if we were to humor her and her doofus friends' nincompoop notion that non-payment of federal income tax will "hurt" the military, you have to wonder about the motives of a grieving mother of a KIA who wishes to do her part to see that other soldiers are KIA. How much does she mourn her son's death if she is willing to deprive the military he belonged to of the defense dollars needed to provide its soldiers with the armor and whatnot they require in order to protect themselves? Implicit in her "defiant" refusal to fund the military is her admission that her son, along with his buddies, in fighting the "unjust" war in Iraq, was as much a war criminal as President Bush. President Bush, therefore, did not kill her son, but made him a "criminal".

Third, if she thinks an IRS prosecution of her for not paying taxes will literally put the war "on trial", in a courtroom, then she's really wasting her time protesting and should instead become a stand-up comic in a loony bin. Oh, right, she's from California. That would be redundant, too. About the only defense to non-payment of taxes is death of the taxpayer. Okay, maybe insanity. So, maybe she will get away with it, after the wage garnishment (assuming she works, which will put her one step ahead of her fellow protestors) and the liens against her property that follow the requisite warnings from the IRS. Maybe the Democrats will regain their majority in '06, and call for an investigation of the IRS's harassment of Ms. Sheehan, provided anyone remembers who the hell she is by then.
