I guess he realized that he made too big a target for the GOP, and was, in fact, helping them by showing up. Too bad he quit... He's smarter than I thought.

Waddaya Know! France discovers that paying the Dane Gelt does not keep the Dane away...
I feel bad for these guys, but still have to laugh at the irony.

That date was April 4th, 1968, but according to Kerry's own Website, it was not until November 17, 1968, that he reported for duty in Vietnam."
Ahhh, the selective memory "I remember..." disease so common to Dems running for office has claimed another victim.
Sad to see that some myths about homeschooling persist in centers of supposed higher education. Sad, but not surprising. I especially like the part about needing more federal research, which, of course, will steer money to the same institutions to study the problems they have 'discovered'.

I take it back! He sounds today just like he sounded 30 years ago. This was taken from his book, and only the words in italics have been changed...
Hmmm... So "I voted for the war in Iraq before I voted against it" theme is back, but this time with Vietnaaaam. If he becomes president, this could be interesting: "I pushed for abortion restrictions before I increased federal funding for it." "I pressed for more free trade with China, before I argued that there should be sanctions on them". "I called for a tax cut before I signed the tax increase into law..."
Some may call it complexity, bifurcation, or diplomacy, but most American schoolboys would call it being a wuss, and most young women would call it fear of commitment.

--John Kerry, questioning President Bush's military-service record, February 8, 2004."
Best written summary of the duplicity of Kerry I have seen yet...Check it out in the WSJ.

Oh No! Who would have thought that those crafty swift boat vets were really Al Qaida terrorists! It was vets that brought down the towers, not radical muslim terrorists...
I wonder, really wonder, what they are putting in his coffee.
Zounds! Great hunks of six degrees of ken bacon, batman! We have a mighty conspiracy on our hands!

Is anyone investigating a 'web of connections' between the New York Times and the Kerry campaign?
My blood began to race as I parked the truck. The thump of the .50 BMG was familiar to me from my time in Iraq, but this time I knew I could get up close and personal, and not have to worry about someone shooting back at the sound. Every time one fired, the ground shook just a bit, and the closer I got, the more pronounced this phenomenon became. Cresting the rise to enter the 1000 yard range, my eyes were greeted by a wonderful sight: about 30 sets of .50 cal shooters, plenty of targets, and smoke. I walked down to the firing line and within minutes had been invited to test fire one.
How could I say no?
What an experience. For anyone who has not tried it, I highly recommend it. For those who have, you know what I am talking about...putting a 600 grain slug 1000 yards downrange accurately is AWESOME! The blast from the muzzle brakes of guns on either side rocked me a bit, but nothing compared to the shove the one on my shoulder gave me when I squeezed the trigger. Grass to the front and sides was burned and flattened from the brake, and I managed to pull the scope back on target in time to see the bullet hit about 8 inches high. Not bad for a first try...at 2/3rds of a mile. Center of mass aim, still would have been a dead bad guy.
The fun did not end there, however. As I made my way down the line, more and more invitations to try guns were proffered. I fired a kit gun, an AR build and, best of all, a Barrett semi-auto. 10 rounds as fast as you could pull the trigger.
I want one...

Wow! I wonder if he thinks he was JFK in a former life...or this one! Senator from Mass. with those initials... Kinda scary.
It seems that not only has Kerry forgotten where he was, he has a hard time remembering who he was...
I guess that is the danger of trying to remake yourself every day. Or maybe it is by showing that he has played so many fantasy parts, he hopes to get the Walter Mitty vote.

C'mon, guys! Hire a director or writer or something to help get your fantasy, er, story straight!
It seems to me I have seen this in a movie somewhere... Missing memories of a fight that may not have taken place.
Has anyone asked him if he would like to play a game of solitaire?

I know, you are all getting impatient. But that is nothing compared to how impatient Tamsey is getting. Today I caught her reading about castor oil and other 'home remedies' on-line. I'll post something as soon as I can, once we know anything. It looks like this Thursday is the longest the nice doctors will let her go, so lacking other info, look for something in this space then.

Once again, you can't make this stuff up!
Fast forward 2 years:
Heinz-Kerry sues President Kerry for divorce, claims husband 'forced her onto Marine One'.
In papers filed today in Boston, Teresa Heinz Kerry sued her husband, President Kerry, for divorce, citing irreconsilable differences. In her papers, Heinz Kerry agrees to give up her claim to half the White House in exchange for two years of Presidential veto rights...

Reverend Peterson said the criticism from conservative groups made it impossible for her to do her job. Peterson's most vocal critic, the conservative Catholic League, called her a, 'Left-wing activist' ... for filing an amicus brief supporting atheist Michael Newdow in his court challenge to the pledge two years ago."
Sometimes you just have to wonder...

As intolerant as the sentences you quoted sound, that idea is the mainstay of any internally coherent religion. Devout Christians and Jews, who hold to their Scriptures, also believe and teach that their religion is the only true religion. There is nothing wrong with that. That is why we have the First Amendment, to protect religion from the meddling of government. It is impossible to legislate thoughts, feelings and beliefs, and the free practice of religion is vital to a moral and lasting society. Religion, incidentally, is vital precisely because of its intolerance for deviation from the mores and rules it teaches. It restrains the natural inclination of man toward selfishness and wickedness. We cannot legislate the heart of man…
We can, however, legislate actions. That is the job of government, to protect those rights and liberties for which so many have fought and died these last 200+ years. When hateful beliefs become actions denying others their rights, the government has not only the right, but the responsibility to step in. A group that preaches hate as a core tenet of its religion should be monitored more closely than, say, a group that preaches meditation, because the preaching of hate is more likely to induce violence (thought it certainly does not cause or excuse it, given the free will of mankind).
In summary, the school has a right to teach their religion, and the parents have a right to have their children educated in their chosen religion. When those children become a threat, the government must meet that threat. That is the nature and the price of liberty. And, paid in blood by so many, we should not abandon our heritage now.

Well there is growing evidence that a decidedly more upscale meal was waiting for them back on the bus. According to the Mid-Hudson News Network, a Kerry campaign aide called the restaurant at the Newburgh Yacht Club the night before and ordered 19 lunches to go, to be picked up at about the same time that the Wendy's photo op was taking place.
A manager at the restaurant has confirmed to Fox News that the yacht-club meals included Shrimp Vindallo, Grilled Diver Sea Scallops, Prosciutto, Wrapped Stuffed Chicken, and Steak Salad. Total bill: just under $200"
You know, you can't make this kind of stuff up...
When groups of women get together, especially if they're mothers and have been married for more than six or seven years, and especially if there's alcohol involved, the conversation is usually the same. They talk about the kids and work—how stressed they are, how busy and bone tired. They gripe about their husbands and, if they're being perfectly honest and the wine kicks in, they talk about the disappointments in their marriages.
Quite the negative, depressing article. According to this 4 part report, there is no hope!

No, Tamsey is not in labor. Any day now...
I'll post an update here as soon as we know more. Her due date is not for another week, but you can use the comments section to vote for the day you think the blessed event will occur. Please add a time in case of a tie. Winner will get the first e-mailed picture of the girl, so please leave your name, Mr. Anonymous.
