Boris at the Canadian blog (Canada is up to its eyebrows in Afghanistan) The Galloping Beaver has an instructive take on why colonial wars like the ones in Afghanistan and/or northwestern Pakistan are so futile.

FDL (Emphasis mine):
Alaska's Frost Lady is part of Eminem's stimulus package.
Gov GILF has a new fan in rapper Eminem, who includes Sarah Palin in a wish list of ladies with whom he'd like to be intimately involved. Palin joins the rapper's hit list of simulated sexy celebs like Lindsey Lohan, Kim Kardashian, and Jessica Simpson in the video for "We Made You." Fame, it's a bitch. Read below the fold...

I have made no secrets that I find conservative columnist and pundit Cal Thomas particularly repugnant. What bothers me most about him is that conservatives pass the guy off as some kind of reasonable intellectual, and Cal, himself, often passes himself off as an elite conservative rather than the religious whack-job that he really is.
It should have come as no surprise, then, when I saw his most recent column in my local paper, yesterday, peddling him same old smug and repugnant bullshit, but he never ceases to amaze me in this regard. Read below the fold...

It's a really good thing that God (Ceiling Cat, FSM, Buddha, Deity of your choice) has claimed vengeance, and the right to judgement (Romans 12:19-21). 'Cause, otherwise, the Catholic authorities who chose to excommunicate the mother of, and doctors for, a nine-year-old girl raped by her stepfather and pregnant with twins after the pregnancy was terminated last week, would seriously be at the top of my list of the most major jerks in the history of the known universe, yo.

War never does anybody any favors. Under the George W. Bush regime, however, it appears that not only did the women and children of Iraq suffer on a wholesale basis, but female GIs also faced torture, rape, and murder while on US-controlled ground in Iraq. From an article about rape, murder and coverup at commondreams seeking investigation into the death of 19-year-old Army PFC Lavena Lynn Johnson at Balad, where she was found in a KBR tent in July 2005, come the details: Read below the fold...

What if a man kidnapped a woman and made her play Grand Theft Auto? Every self-styled moralist in the country would have a field day about the sources of decadence.
Instead, the story goes like this:
TOLEDO, Ohio - A man held a woman captive in handcuffs and an adult diaper for three days while he read Bible passages to her, police said.
Troy Brisport, 34, was charged with kidnapping and felonious assault. Bail was set Tuesday at $400,000. Read below the fold...

shoes like these?
I mean, seriously. It's like foot-binding -- first you throw the ankle, knee and hip completely out of alignment, then you squash all the toes into about 1/3 the room they need, and you put all the weight on the front 1/4 of the foot. It's like a bad-engineering contest winner!! (but this one isn't quite as revolting-looking as the red-patent jobs with the faux-gold buckles I found before.) Read below the fold...
