Clinton "admits" telling Ann Coulter he's gay

But he has a very good reason for it.

Found this when I was puttering around at YouTube and thought I'd share it with my readers. Enjoy.

Rice - Perfect as Secretary of State

Not welcome in Lebanon, Rice heads home Monday

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Unwelcome in Lebanon after an Israeli bombing that killed dozens of children, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice cut short her peace mission on Sunday without calling for an immediate ceasefire to end the war.

Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said he did not want her to come to his country for planned meetings on Sunday, saying that after Israel's air strike, he could not hold any talks on resolving the crisis before an immediate ceasefire.

Rice's renewed push to end fighting between Israel and Hizbollah was derailed by the bombing in southern Lebanon, which killed at least 54 people sheltering in a basement, 37 of them children.

"In the wake of the tragedy that the people and the government of Lebanon are dealing with today, I have decided to postpone my discussions in Beirut. In any case, my work is here (in Israel) today," Rice told reporters of the canceled Beirut trip.

Why bother calling for an immediate cease-fire when your main objective is to promote death across the globe? Good job, Condoleeza. There'll be a bonus waiting for you when you return to Washington...

I just can't imagine a better Secretary of State to represent such a miserably failed administration.

War Protester Medea Benjamin of Code Pink interrupts al Maliki's Speech in Congress

(CBS/AP) - A heckler briefly disrupted Wednesday's speech to Congress by Iraq's prime minister.

At a joint meeting of Congress, Nouri al-Maliki was insisting that Iraq remains on the front line against terrorism, when a demonstrator began shouting, "Iraqis want the troops to leave" and "Bring them home now."

Al-Maliki paused and grimaced while the young woman was lifted from her seat and carried by officers from the House visitor's gallery.

Dressed in a pink T-shirt that read, "Troops Home Now," the woman repeatedly called back, "Listen to the Iraqis."

Al-Maliki's speech continued, with a petition for sustained U.S. support. The prime minister said the U.S. and Iraq "need each other."

CBS News' Phil Hirschkorn reports that the heckler is Medea Benjamin of Code Pink. According to the organization's Web site, Code Pink is a "women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq." Benjamin has been arrested many times, Hirschkorn reports, including previously at the Republican National Convention in New York in 2004 and during at least one Congressional hearing.

This world needs more Medea Benjamins.

Freewayblogging Hits the Main Stream Media...Finally

Yours truly couldn't have been happier when Scarlet sent word of a story in The Boston Globe about freewayblogging. Looks like this movement is really starting to catch on. I look at this article and think of the potential it has to get your average Joe and Jane who are totally fed up with what's going on in the world today, to actually go out and do this; to get up off their asses and decide that their opinion counts and not only does it will be seen by all.

Movie Review

How to Reach 100,000 People for Under $1.00

I found this film to be very informative, or at least informative as musicals go. But what do you expect from a movie whose producer/star/stuntman touts the huge monetary savings involved in getting your message across to 100,000 people? I guarantee you Cecil B. DeMille didn't start out this way, folks.

I must say that the musical score was above and beyond reproach. An excellent piece combining both banjo and acoustic guitar played in a fast meter to give the viewer a sense of urgency mixed with fun times.

What took this viewer by surprise was the lone actor's ability to apply paint to cardboard in such a quick, yet orderly fashion, almost as if he had done it thousands of times. Truly fascinating.

PTCruiser gives this film two thumbs waaaaay up. Go see it right now by clicking on the picture above. Oh, and um, don't bother making popcorn. By the time it's done popping, the movie will be finished.

An Open Letter to Dr. Laura

While cruising through my favorite blogs this evening, I came across a post by John Good that had me nearly falling out of the chair from laughing. Enjoy.

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. For example, when someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

However, I do need some advice from you regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them.

1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev.1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19-24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

And that's just a sample. Click on the link below to read the whole thing. Hilarious. Great work, John.

Here's another picture of Dr. Laura before she became obsessed with all of that Bible garbage and proper behavior mumbo-jumbo...

More evidence of sanctimonious bullshit here.

Super-Size It!

Looks like The Freewayblogger is going large. In my earnest pursuit of freewayblogging excellence, I have no choice but to follow suit. I will not let this challenge go unanswered. Plus, it'll give my new signs below some real punch...

Weapons of Mass Destruction

LG-118A Peacekeeper missile system being tested at the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

The lines shown are the re-entry vehicles — one Peacekeeper can hold up to 10 nuclear warheads, each independently targeted. Were the warheads armed with a nuclear payload, each would carry with it the explosive power of twenty-five Hiroshima-sized weapons.

WMD? Yeah, we got 'em.

Posting For Peace

In honor of our nation's birthday, I'm joining a group of fellow bloggers led by Glenda, and posting for peace today. I just got back from Glenda's blog after finding that she's gone and started a new website called The Peace Train. I think you should take a moment to check it out and if you are so inclined, join up.

In addition there's one more site I'd loke you to check out and that is The Peace Alliance. Led in large part by an effort by Dennis Kucinich, they are trying to establish an official United States Department of Peace. I think it's a great idea and a part of our government that I would fully support. We desparately need a government agency such as this one, particularly at a time like this.

Thanks to all my readers, especially Glenda. Happy Independence Day to you and yours and here's looking to a future of peace in our world rather than war.

Movie Review

The Road to Guantanamo
I saw this movie today. I thought the film was very well done. When you see the torture that these guys have been put through, it really puts things into perspective for you. The United States has created a nightmare throughout the world, the impact of which we will feel for generations.

PTCruiser gives this film..........I wish I had more hands, I'd give it four thumbs up.

Check out the official movie website here. I feel the need to make more freeway signs after having seen it. It's no wonder these people despise us so much. We've got a deplorable record when it comes to dealing with our fellow human beings.
