Mini-break.



I have to take a bit of a break from this blog. I will be traveling a bit and won't be back until probably the 7th or 8th of July. Please visit my TexasSparkle blog. I have an obligation to post there 3 times a week and I will squeeze that in. You can click on where it says "Subscribe to Rightwingpsparkle" to the right on the sidebar and you will receive an e-mail when I post again. I will be checking in when I can.

I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July!!!!

The funniest link...

you'd wish you never clicked on.

Redeploy, another word for surrender.

Mark Steyn says it perfectly:

"You gotta hand it to these guys: "Redeployment" is ingenious. I'll bet the focus-group consultants were delirious: "surrender," "lose,","scram," "scuttle ignominiously," "head for the hills" all polled poorly, but "redeploy" surveyed well with all parts of the base, except the base in Okinawa, where they preferred "sayonara" -- that's "redeploy" in any language. The Defeaticrats have a clear message for the American people. Read da ploy: No new quagmires."

Yes, both parties use certain words to make a point. We say "death tax" referring to the double and sometimes triple tax on estate taxes to make our point there. But redeployment is just a fancy word for "we give up" and everyone knows it.

Prosecute the Times?

Powerline brings us this:

Congressman Peter King, Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, called today for criminal prosecution of the New York Times:

King, a New York Republican, said he would write Attorney General Alberto
Gonzales urging that the country's chief law enforcer "begin an investigation
and prosecution of the New York Times - the reporters, the editors and the
publisher."
"We're at war, and for the Times to release information about
secret operations and methods is treasonous," King told The Associated Press
.

I don't think this is a good idea at all. Yes, the New York Time is reprehensible, but let it be tried in the court of public opinion. They are losing money even as we speak. Having the government prosecute the Times will "look" like a control on free speech.

The American people understand when a newspaper puts it's political agenda above the national security of this country. Let the marketplace be it's judge.
