Thanks to those of you who have wondered where I've gone. I've been a little busier than usual trying to get things back on track at work and at home. I am almost up to full days at work, which leaves me a tad tired. So I have been lax about posting.
And there has been so much to post about. From Alito to Zarqawi. From cartoons to King. Where to begin? Let's start with the obvious, and pardon me if you have already heard this. Some places around the world have been rioting and burning and killing to make the point that it was unfair to depict Mohammed as a man of violence. See, this cartoon had his turban in the shape of a bomb. The cartoons were in a Danish paper, so it is only natural that Danish embassies around the world would be destroyed. That shows the wrongheadedness of depicting Islam as violent, doesn't it?
Actually, they don't care what you think as long as you behave. The goal of radical Islam is to cow you into acting the way they want. They don't care if you like them or think them rational. They just want you to capitulate. It's all about control and don't ever forget it.
Help your politicians remember it also. You cannot appease these people, you can only obey. Aren't we glad that Iran is now on its way to becoming a nuclear power? Don't you wish every fanatic had access to these weapons?
OK, rant off for now. See you again soon.
