NYT's sinking stock

Has anyone besides me noticed this correlation between the decline in the stock price of the New York Times Corporation and the 2004 election.

Remember, it was not until the Kerry campaign got underway that the NYT finally quit trying to maintain any semblance of objectivity.

Interesting how their financial fortunes seem to decline in direct proportion to their increasingly overt support of liberal politicians.

Heh, heh, check it out here and look at the dates at the bottom of the chart:

I love it!

Poor Lad

Poor Lad (a poem)

A mother weeps with tears that burn,
From her son’s death will she not learn?
Will she then honor what she lost,
Pay tribute to his personal cost?
Or will she use his death to preach,
Perched on his coffin will she screech,
And damn the cause her dead son served,
Her special spot in hell reserved?

There are those many who agree,
This mother has a voice that’s free,
To vent her anger scream her sorrow,
Remind us all of death’s tomorrow.
But what of those men fighting there?
Must they this mother’s anger bear?
Mad mother questioning what they do,
Who disrespects our valiant few.

I’m tired of her public pass to grieve,
From the media world, she now should leave,
And give her son’s poor soul some rest,
Stop undermining our bravest best,
Who fight to let this woman speak,
To let her scream, to let her shriek,
Her misguided hatred of her nation.
And the very ones give her salvation.

Oh, Cindy please fade into night,
And cease your rage against the light,
That illuminates your dead son’s goal,
The saving grace that guards his soul,
Which sadly you can’t seem to see,
What he sought most is victory;
A victory that his buddies won,
Now they, not you, salute your son.

How tragic that a soldier’s death should be so poorly used;
Poor lad, so sad, so tragically, by his mother so abused.

Donny Boy

Donny Boy
(With a tip a’ me hat to the gent who penned the original)

Oh Donny boy, the snipes, the snipes are bawling,
From spin to spin, some generals now decide,
The war’s all wrong and for your head they’re calling,
‘Tis you, ‘tis you must go, they want your hide.

But guard your back from those now in the meadow,
From starry pundits claim they told you so.
To hype their books, they snipe you from the shadow,
Oh Donny boy, oh Donny boy, they hate you so.

And if you run when all the media’s lying,
Then truth is dead as dead the truth may be.
They’ll howl and hound you ‘til you are a’ dying,
And spiel an evil epitaph for thee.

And they will sneer no matter what befalls thee,
At all your dreams of sweetest victory,
For if you win they’ll still not ever love thee,
You’ll see no peace until Bush cuts you free.

Oh Donny boy, the snipes, the snipes are bawling,
From spin to spin, they’re crying for your hide.
Your war is lost is what the media’s calling,
‘Tis you must go, they want ol’ Rummy fried.

Adam Kontras: Talent Wasted

I know I haven't posted in a while. I am a lazy blogger... or maybe I am just overworked, I have no idea. Anyway, I think of really great topics to blog about, then after working for 12 hours or so I forget or am too tired to write. Be that as it may, I did want to make a quick post about this:

More specifically, this:

From the brief bit you can tell that this Adam Kontras is a rather talented fellow... it is too bad he is a liberal. Talent wasted.

I don't believe Adam will ever see this post, but if he does I'd like to give him the opportunity to answer this question:

What is President Bush doing wrong with regards to Iran?

Isn't the diplomatic route the route that you liberals harp on as being the proper route to take? We are placing DIPLOMATIC pressure on Iran and we are doing this with MULTI-LATERAL support.

And yet still we find the left being sharply critical of Bush.

Adam's cute little song paints Bush as a warmonger. Is Adam ignorant of the fact that we took the Diplomatic route with Iraq until it proved entirely unsuccessful. Now we face a similar situation with Iran. But what does Adam want us to do? Wait until Iran builds a Nuke and blows up a major US city? Would it be okay then for us to bomb Iran?

What solution does he provide? Adam is the perfect symbol for the left because he embodies their politics: Attack the right and provide NO alternative Solution.

The only reason I really wanted to mention Adam's little project is because he mentioned the draft in the song. Adam seems to think Bush, the 'evil warmonger', is going to start a war and attack the sweet innocent women and children of Iran. Adam seems to think Bush's purpose is two-fold: to make haliburton more money and to kill American youth via the draft.

I guess I have another question for Adam... where was the last draft you idiots on the left promised? I distinctly remember MTV's rock the vote having articles that basically told American youth to "vote or die" because the Evil Warmonger Bush was waiting until his second term so he could bring back the draft since Iraq was nothing more than a "quagmire" and Vietnam in the Desert. Where was the last draft the left promised?

Oh, and what happened to all of the comparisons to Vietnam? You guys on the left are dropping the ball. I haven't read an article from the NYT's making another comparison to that war in quite a while.

I am sure I have scads more to criticize but I am in serious need of some dinner and sleep. Adam, if you are out there and you can support your moronic political beliefs, I am willing to openly debate the facts right here on this site.

Blanco's Liberal Sermon

Sermon XII

First Church of Democrats

Bringing liberals closer to God since 2006

Higher Education

Higher Education
Inspired by the Sean Hannity interview with Ward Churchill

We send our kids to college,
To get an education;
We send them there for knowledge,
Not to learn to hate their nation.
The billions that we pay,
These high priced institutions,
Should pay to teach our kids a way,
To seek life’s best solutions.

But Sixties losers from the Left,
Have seized the ivory towers,
So now our kids must sit bereft,
Absorbing agitprop for hours.
They hear not the words of Winnie,
A true Churchill of distinction,
But some phony Indian ninnie,
Who prophesies their extinction.

And while your kid can’t get in Yale,
Can’t make the grade or cut,
They admit a turbaned, Taliban male,
A terrorist from a hut.
So now he learns at our expense,
And no woman dare sit near,
How to worm his way past our defense,
Undermine all we hold dear.

What fools they are who claim to be,
The brightest in our nation;
Not even smart as you and me,
Despite their lofty station.
No common sense do they possess,
Or they’d teach our kids what’s right;
Their Marxist minds a muddled mess,
They’re fools won’t see the light.

Someday our warriors will return seeking higher institutions,
Should not surprise those so unwise, they may face retributions.

Good News and Bad News

Well, as I see it, the good news is we no longer have to see that ultra-liberal hack of a journalist on the today show ever again. The bad news is CBS found someone more rupulsive than Rather to spin the news.

Racial Idiocy

I haven't been posting much lately. Work is the biggest factor, but I saw a few things over on Drudge that I thought I would chime in on:

Lawyer Says McKinney a Victim in Scuffle
Her lawyer, James W. Myart Jr., said, "Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans across this country, is, too, a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin."

"Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black," Myart said. "Congresswoman McKinney will be exonerated."


Several Capitol Police officials have said the officer involved asked McKinney three times to stop. When she did not, he placed a hand on her and she hit him, they said.

Asked on-camera Thursday by WSB-TV of Atlanta whether she intended to apologize, McKinney declined to comment. A news conference scheduled for Friday morning was canceled. She had issued a statement late Wednesday saying she regretted the confrontation.
I am outraged! She hit a police officer and SHE is the victim. At a time of war, in our nation's capitol, an officer sworn to protect the Capitol stops a woman who brushes past security and refuses to stop and this is somehow a show of excessive force?!?! AND RACISM TO BOOT!!!! What kind of world do we live in? Excessive force would be an officer shooting her in the head for failing to stop at the security check point. What the officer did was correct and more importantly it was his job... a necessary job. This leaves me wondering: Why is it that every time a high profile black person does something wrong it is not only 'not their fault' but more importantly "proof" of racism?

Where is the proof of this racism? SHE is a BLACK WOMAN in CONGRESS. I imagine she represents a congressional district that is largely comprised of BLACK VOTERS. There was a time when there were no women in Congress, no black voters, and no black representatives.... but this is the twenty-first century. Why do we keep screaming racism at every turn. Don't cases like this hurt the true victims of racism by denigrating the term. There ARE racists and bigots in this country, no doubt, and there are victims of racism, but they will never have justice as long as high profile representatives of the black community cheapen the terms in order to save face.

In other news: AMERICAN FLAGS are being removed from a high school because
"The flags no longer were being used as symbols of patriotism or of cultural heritage, but of ethnic intimidation, harassment and blatant bigotry"
The ban on flags include mexican flags, which were brought in by students to show support for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS! I can understand a ban on Mexican flags, but a ban on American Flags too!!! In and AMERICAN High school! There ought to be a federal law requiring schools that accept federal money to protect the display of the AMERICAN flag in the classroom.

Speaking of bigotry and ethnic intimidation, check out this link submitted by Jeff Blanco
You really need to see this video about immigration
protests. It's a shame that these people can act like
this. As a Latino, I'm embarrassed by this behavior.
