are the True Conservatives
Dru Sjodin was the
lovely young blue-eyed blond who was kidnapped and murdered by the repeat, "Level
Three" sex offender recently. He was able to kill her because lawyers and
judges put him back on the street.
Radicals like me
want people like that executed or at least locked up and not let back on the
The biggest liberal
is the Trial Lawyers' Association, which wants to stop radicals like
me from changing the legal game that killed Dru Sjodin. They make
their living off of that legal game. They say I am a radical and

The Soviet Empire
never had better friends than American "liberals." But
now those in
who want to bring Russia back to Communism, the Russian Communist
Party, are called "the conservatives."
conservatives make their living by opposing the political left in
ways that the political left approves of. If they are to appear on
the media, conservatives must earn that "respectable" label, and
they get it by pleasing liberals.
One of the rules
every respectable conservative must obey is to say that a debate is
fair if it includes someone called a conservative and a leftist.
Jess Jackson says that is "Both Sides."
So if you are
opposing a person who calls himself a "progressive," you are a
But liberals are
the ones who insist that things remain exactly as they are right
now. They want the tax-deductible foundations they run to remain
tax-exempt. They want no change in the legal system. They want
colleges to keep their government-sponsored monopoly so university
tuitions can go higher and higher and liberal professors can be paid
to push their agenda in the name of "academic freedom."
Listen to the
debates. You will notice that it is the liberals who are the
conservatives, and anyone who wants to change things as they are is called a
Palestinians are Asking for Their Birth Right, not a "Right of
President Bush has
given more Palestinian land to Israel. He has recognized the right
of some Israelis to settle in the
West Bank. That is the first step. Eventually
under either party will recognize more and more Israeli rights to
more and more of Palestine.
The United States
has also firmly recognized the right of of any Jew from anywhere to settle in
Israel and it has vetoed any right of Palestinians who were born on
the land that the state of Israel has taken over to go back home.
saying that Palestinians who were born in today's Israel are
demanding a "Right of Return."
That is not true.
If you were born in
and many other countries, no matter what citizenship you now have,
you have a "birthright" in Britain. A "birthright" means that you
can always go and live in Britain, no matter what citizenship you
A person’s Birth
Right to go back to the land where he was born is recognized all
over the world, outside the United States. In this Nation of
Immigrants, if your family has been been here for over three hundred
years, as is the case with most Southerners, you are lucky the
government lets you live here at all.
In the United
States the only difference between a person born here and an
“undocumented worker” is documents, pieces of paper issued by the
authorities. In a Nation of Immigrants, no one who is born here
has any special right to be here at all.
It is no wonder
that Americans do not understand the difference between a
universally recognized “birthright’ and the purely Israeli term
“Right of Return.”
A birthright is
entirely different from this "Right of Return" that Old Testament
fanatics invented for Jews. The "Right of Return" means that if
your family converted to Judaism before you were born, you are now a
Jew, so you have a right to drive Palestinians off of land to which
THEY have birthright.
Most of today's
Jews probably are the descendants of a tribe in Russia called the
Khazars and other converts over the past two thousand years.
Even in the time of Jesus, most of the six million Jews in the Roman
Empire were almost certainly converts.
So the real "Right
of Return" has nothing to do with the return of the children of
Israel to Israel, even if it WE'RE right to drive Arabs off the
country they were born in in the name of religion. The facts
of the Old Testament fanatics' argument for this "right of Return"
More important, the "Right of
Return" is entirely a matter of religious fanaticism. It has
nothing to do with the Birth Right Palestinians are demanding.
A "blog" is a
personal web page where you just write down whatever you damned well
please and put in public for people to see.
If you have an
idea, you can put it on the public record by putting it on your blog.
If you have an
invention, you can put it on the public record by writing it on your
If you are like me
and your best ideas cannot be published, you put them on record in
A blog is usually a
kind of public diary of your thoughts.
My blog is more
like a diary than it is like a web page.
My blog is not
written for the reader, but you are welcome to read it until you get
so bored you can't stand it.
DO NOT HOLD ME TO
ANYTHING I SAY IN MY BLOG.
Do not expect the
blog to be nearly as professional as my writing. I am talking to me,
not to you.
You are listening
to the meanderings of a person with Adult Attention Deficit
Disorder. That makes real writing hard work. My blog is not going
to be hard work, so it is going to be a bit scatterbrained.
You are welcome to
tell me anything my blog makes you think of.
I have been
confidential advisor to everything from mercenary soldiers to
alcoholics and drug addicts to the President This list could go on a
long, long way. I have learned to think like a host of people.
So my blog will be
an exercise in writing from inside the skin of a lot of other people
I can try to think
like a Klansman one day and like a Communist the next. I've known
plenty of both, and I have given advice to both, free of charge. I
respect and will give PERSONAL help to any honest person, wherever
that honesty leads them.
That attitude is
part of my own personal Bible Belt heritage, "Judge not that ye be
not judged." But it has repaid my efforts many, many times over,
not least because I can walk in a lot of people's shoes.
If this doesn't
give you the warning you need, you need to go back to Kindergarten.
If you are the kind
of person who permanently rejects someone because of one wrong thing
he said, I don't want you near me anyway.
I warn you, that
kind of person is not worth knowing. Get away from him!
I realize my blog
is public. So I won't identify people in it or give information
that would allow anybody to identify them. Trust me, I've had to do
that all my life.
After I have said
all this, if my blog infuriates somebody, that person is a fool.
And I am retired, I
have all the money I want, and I have done enough in my life so that
I need to impress nobody, so I don't give a damn.
If that sort of
person reads my blog, he will reject me forever. That would be a
favor to me. If the blog gets rid of people like that, that alone
would make it worthwhile.
A blog never ends, so if you want to take a look now, do so.
But it will be there a long time, and it will get longer and longer.
