Welcome to today 

It’s not an either/or scenario, it’s all of the above. Yes, the terrorists targeted locally owned hotels. But they singled out Britons and Americans as hostages. Yes, they attacked prestige city landmarks like the Victoria Terminus, one of the most splendid and historic railway stations in the world. But they also attacked an obscure Jewish community center. The Islamic imperialist project is a totalitarian ideology: It is at war with Hindus, Jews, Americans, Britons, everything that is other.
It’s not the Cold War, with a small network of deep sleepers being directly controlled by Moscow. There are no membership cards, only an ideology.

Today is 12 Nov. Usually this thing has wrapped up by now, but this year, it's been extended out until Thanksgiving. So this post stays at the top until then. Bust out them credit cards.

Thanksgiving - the real story

Army mortarmen get some in AFG 

This is loud, intense, vulgar and... well... it's war.

VERY not safe to put out through your speakers if you're at work... unless you want the squishy mo-fo in the next cubicle over to see just what the hell his US Army is doing with his tax dollar.

Set phasers for "kill" 

Ya know, I've never watched Boston Legal. Maybe I should start.

14 year old girl runs "tolerance" gauntlet 

Observe, dear readers, as a brave young lass participates in the hate-filled thought-crime of exposing... well... hate-filled thoughtless skulls full of mush.
As the media keeps gushing on about how America has finally adopted tolerance as the great virtue, and that we're all united now, let's consider the Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment.

Catherine Vogt, 14, is an Illinois 8th grader, the daughter of a liberal mom and a conservative dad. She wanted to conduct an experiment in political tolerance and diversity of opinion at her school in the liberal suburb of Oak Park.
Immediately, Catherine learned she was stupid for wearing a shirt with Republican John McCain's name. Not merely stupid. Very stupid.
"One person told me to go die. It was a lot of dying. A lot of comments about how I should be killed," Catherine said, of the tolerance in Oak Park.

But students weren't the only ones surprised that she wore a shirt supporting McCain.

"In one class, I had one teacher say she will not judge me for my choice, but that she was surprised that I supported McCain," Catherine said.

If Catherine was shocked by such passive-aggressive threats from instructors, just wait until she goes to college.

"Later, that teacher found out about the experiment and said she was embarrassed because she knew I was writing down what she said," Catherine said.
Note here that the teacher isn't regretful for saying what she said, just that she was documented doing so.
One student suggested that she be put up on a cross for her political beliefs.

"He said, 'You should be crucifixed.' It was kind of funny because, I was like, don't you mean 'crucified?'" Catherine said.

Other entries in her notebook involved suggestions by classmates that she be "burned with her shirt on" for "being a filthy-rich Republican."

Only a few times did anyone say anything remotely positive about her McCain shirt. One girl pulled her aside in a corner, out of earshot of other students, and whispered, "I really like your shirt."

That's when you know America is truly supportive of diversity of opinion, when children must whisper for fear of being ostracized, heckled and crucifixed.

The next day, in part 2 of The Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment, she wore another T-shirt, this one with "Obama Girl" written in blue. And an amazing thing happened.

Catherine wasn't very stupid anymore. She grew brains.

"People liked my shirt. They said things like my brain had come back, and I had put the right shirt on today," Catherine said.
Click on over and check out just how basic these shirts were that inspired all this hate/love. Well done, young thought-criminal. But realize, only because of your tender age will you not be given the Joe the Plumber treatment of having your life and background relentlessly torn to shreds - simply because you haven't been around long enough to have a background.

Your teacher who put you up to this is probably boned though... And your dad, too... But hey, them's the breaks, right?

Ooh-rah. Kill. Yut. Get some.
Blood makes the grass grow.

Yeah, that sounds about right 

Ahhh, Seattle - the town that I used to call home and have long since escaped from. But I totally CAN'T WAIT to go back now, though. And why not, you may ask? Because, it seems, Seattle is happy to be part of America again.
With newfound patriotism, Seattleites want to wave the flag, hang it from their homes and stick it on their cars.

"The thing that's kind of astounding to me is I never ever would have cared to own a flag," said Rosemary Garner, 42. "This is the first day in my life I actually feel this funny sense of pride about my country. It's a very foreign feeling, but it's a good one."

Garner, a self-described "flag virgin" who lives on Capitol Hill, bought eight flags Wednesday -- some to wave and others to stick on her car to "mix and match with some nice Obama and peace signs.
At All the King's Flags in Ballard, people have been snatching up American flags.

"Just today I've had a noticeable rush on U.S. flags," said James Sawyer, assistant manager. "I had a lady come in and she said she's happy to be an American again, that's why she was buying a flag."
In a true stroke of GENIUS, the Seattle PI offers you a chance to download and print your own American flag! Whether or not this has anything to do with most Seattleites not knowing what the hell it looked like without someone telling them "hey, here it is," is anyone's guess. Only one person could be found for the story that didn't have their head completely up their ass.
The Star-Spangled Banner should transcend political party, said Anderson, who supported Obama.

"I don't care whether it's the Fourth of July or whatever. This country's at war. You'd think that you'd see a few American flags flying. Were they not flying the flag because they don't like George Bush? I mean, give me a break. It should represent more than who's in office. The flag itself to me has always represented an honor."
But we want to end on a positive note - this IS a Seattle news outlet reporting, after all - so here ya go.
A New England upbringing has led Briggs Hause, a cashier at Magnolia Ace Hardware, to frequently fly the flag. But she disliked President Bush's leadership so much that she couldn't.

"I haven't the last eight years because I was very depressed with it," said Hause, who gave her age as "in my 60s." "It wasn't my America. I didn't put out one (a flag). Refused to. But now I will."
The Seattle timeline for national pride was apparently just a little longer than Michelle Obama's, that's all...

As a final helping hand for the self-described "flag virgins," the PI breaks out a bit of the flag code, so people know what the hell to do. Included on the list are the following:
- The flag should be placed in superior prominence to other flags.
- Flags should be clean and not tattered. Worn out flags should be burned.
Even with their newfound patriotism, I'm guessing that Seattleites will still have a hard time with the former. The latter however, should be easy enough to handle...

Public schools: Not quite so much "change" going on 

"...this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. This was the moment-this was the time-when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves and our highest ideals."*
By making little kids cry. You stay classy out there...

UPDATE: "Appropriate action will be taken"... whatever the hell that means...

Good night, comrades. A brave new world awaits.
