Feel-Good Policies that Wreak Havoc in the Long Run

Recent calls to bail out homeowners who got in over their heads have raised not only red flags, but anger, among fiscally responsible Americans. Although politicians will use “feel-good” speeches to show they care about the poor person who is losing their home “through no fault of their own,” anyone who has been following the housing crisis for the last few years knows that most of this was preventable, and most of it motivated by greed and an irrational belief that house prices would just continue to go up.

Best Overheard Cell-Phone Talk This Month

Guy standing outside a coffee shop says to whomever on the other end of the line:

“Yeah, I found a guy who’ll do it. Fidel. Yeah, the Cuban guy.”

The Lost Letters of Al Qaeda

Is that recent letter between Zawahiri and Zarqawi authentic? .

For those who don’t know – this recent letter basically suggests the people of the U.S. will wimp out and force their President to leave Iraq too soon and, well, that will allow them to set up an Islamic state and move out from there – eventually taking over the whole Middle East (no more Israel). If true, this is a powerful letter supporting the administration’s “we will stay until the job is done (although we can’t quite tell you what that job is)” policy. Some are questioning if this is simply propaganda created by the administration.

They might not be so suspicious if they knew about the “lost letters” – these are very similar in how they portray the “people” of America vs. their government. The lost letters are very interesting. These were translated roughly into English – and I’m only including the relevant parts (cutting out most of the various ‘peace be upon hims’ and ‘salams’):

And it should be said that any indictments of Karl Rove or the one they call Scooter will be very helpful in establishing an Islamic Caliphant. If they do indeed proceed, this could be the event that turns the war in the Holy Lands to our favor.

I am hoping the pressure to go back on suspending the Davis Bacon Act in the Gulf States devasted by Private Katrina will be bowed to. If they force them to pay what the Infidels call a prevailing wage, this could cause us to lose the great jihad in Iraq.
I also have analyzed the situation with the Senator they call Delay. Should they successfully prosecute him, this will certainly help all jihadists throughout the world. The American people are helping us so much with these actions.

We dread greatly the confirmation of the infidel woman to the Supreme Court. If she is confirmed, this will set back our jihad many years. We do hope the infidel Bush relents and withdraws her nomination.

I was concerned during the time after the devastation by Private Katrina. It seems Americans were pressuring their government to act quickly to save the victims – if the government had listened it would have undermined our jihad in many places. It is fortunate that the leaders of America are not swayed by the American people as by doing so they would most certainly harm our great jihad. Death to America. Jihad Forever. Salam Malakim.

I thought this was very much in line with the letter that Al Qaeda denies they wrote – showing that maybe they did write it, as they have a similar, how should we say it, spin.

Breaking Story: Americans donate their H2s to help reinforce the levees of New Orleans.

“I just realized at 9 miles to the gallon, I was part of the problem,” explained an ex-Hummer fan who asked to remain anonymous. “I kept thinking I had something on my face or my fly was down anyway, people were giving me such strange looks when I got out of the thing. At first I thought they envied me, and I felt important, but then I realized they were looks of disgust.”

Recent studies have shown that U.S. consumption of oil has been increasing at a rate of 2% of year. Many people attribute this to the move toward bigger vehicles that use obscene amounts of gas.

“When it costs people $80 to fill their tanks every week, they start to think about their decisions. In many ways, rising gas prices could be a good thing. It forces people to understand the economic consequences of energy gluttony,” an expert on energy matters stated.

“Oh balderdash,” responded the president of America Only, Only Americans. “This is our gas, our oil. Let the Marxists conserve gas like the pansies they are. We are Americans. Anyone suggests making my Escalade smaller and less powerful so I look like some fairy Frenchman, I say to them “from my cold dead hands.”
