Almost a year ago, in May 2005, Fox created controversy saying "There's no doubt that Mexican men and women — full of dignity, willpower and a capacity for work — are doing the work that not even blacks want to do in the United States."
While Fox later apologized for his comments, he landed in more hot water in July by defending two postage stamps showing Samboish or Al Jolsonesque caricatures of black people (see below).

Thanks to Republican sellouts (Graham, Brownback, Dewine, Specter) who joined all Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, a de facto amnesty bill disguised as "immigration reform" is due to come to the Senate floor for a vote. This is nothing but a sellout of our nation at the border. There can be no immigration reform without securing our nation's borders first. Amnesty has been tried and has not stopped people from coming into the country illegally. In fact, it has only increased it.
The only true border reform is in the bill which passed the House, HB 4437. There has to be a deterrent for people who not only break our immigration laws, but hire people who are illegal immigrants.
As much of a supporter as I am of President Bush, I am extremely disappointed in his stubborn insistence on a guest worker program. That should be out of the question until our borders are secure. There is no way that people who broke our laws should be rewarded with a job or visa. A guest worker program is not fair to those people who immigrate to this country legally and who played by the rules.
"They do the jobs no one else will do." I cannot say how sick I am of hearing that phrase. Or hearing the Rev. Hillary Rotten last week try to bring religion into the debate, saying HB 4437 would criminalize the Good Samaritan. The same goes for Dianne Feinstein, who is also (with the help of her husband) trying to sell out America to the Communist Chinese. The entire Democratic party is behind this amnesty proposal because they see votes in these big protest marches over the last few days. They're so desperate to regain power they're willing to pimp out this nation for rolls of new registered Democrat voters. The same goes for the Elitist Right (business class, Wall Street Journal editorial page, Libertarians), who see cheap labor. The Leftist labor unions are in that game also. None of these people ask Mexico why it demands we open our borders, while they secure their own Southern border. What hypocrites!
And I'm sick of hearing the race card being dealt from the bottom of the deck. You dare lecture those of us who want to stop illegal immigration about race? What does La Raza mean? Translated, it means "the race." Don't tell me that's not racism. How about this article from 2004 “Jews Attack Mexican Heritage in Los Angeles County." Did this come from a Nazi website? No, it came from La Voz de Aztlan, a Hispanic separatist website (scroll down for more examples of anti-Semitism). Don't forget what former California State Senator (and current California Democratic Party Chairman) Art Torres said during the debate over Prop 187 in the mid-1990's ("...187 was the last gasp of white America in California.")
Then there's all the protesters holding Mexican flags and signs saying this is "stolen land," in addition to taking Old Glory off flagpoles, replacing it with the Mexican flag. That doesn't sound like these people want to become U.S. citizens. If those people want to fly the Mexican flag and refuse to assimilate into our distinct American culture, I say get the Hell out of our country! Anyone who moves to, Mexico, France, Peru or Japan, has no choice but to assimilate, learn the language, etc.
For all the talk about illegals "doing the jobs no one else will do," my wife made the astute observation that such a phrase is, in itself, racist. What the open borders advocates are saying is that menial jobs like picking fruit and scrubbing toilets are all Hispanics are good for. That is like someone circa 1850 arguing slavery was necessary because the cotton fields in the South could not be picked without blacks from Africa.
Congress needs to get serious about securing our nation’s borders or else the Republican majority risks alienating most voters who oppose amnesty and want a secure border. This is an issue that cannot be avoided anymore.

None other than Marin County resident Carlos Santana, who has probably been stuck on stupid since he played Woodstock stoned out of his mind in August 1969.
Granted, I like many of Carlos' songs, and he's a pretty good guitar player. When it comes to foreign policy, however, Carlos cannot carry a tune in a bucket. He has the problem of too many entertainers who came of age in the 1960's. They suffer from an arrogant belief that those of us who buy their CDs and go to their concerts are obliged to hear their Leftist rants.
So, all the way from Peru earlier this week, Carlos had some words of wisdom to share with us, the uneducated peasants.
"I have wisdom. I feel love. I live in the present and I try to present a dimension that brings harmony and healing. My concept is the opposite of George W. Bush."
You're right Carlos, your concept is different. There is an enemy that wants to kill us all, regardless of who you voted for or whether you're a liberal or conservative. They hate the music you create. They'd love to destroy your expensive home and the tools of your trade, those nice Paul Reed Smith signature guitars of yours.
The difference between you and George W. Bush is that President Bush wants to destroy our enemies before they attack us again. You just want to smoke a bag of dope with them before they kill more Americans with more terrorism.
Carlos continues, "As Jimi Hendrix used to say, musical notes have more importance than bullets."
Apparently, Carlos was too stoned to realize that Jimi Hendrix may not have entirely agreed with him. According to Jimi Hendrix.com (hat tip to Michael),
“....Friends were often surprised by Hendrix's pro-war stance on Vietnam. Eric Burdon recalled that when Hendrix arrived in England he spoke fervently about the need for the United States to subdue Chinese Communism before it overtook the world. It is important to remember that Hendrix had been on both sides of the fence, experiencing attitudes toward the war as diametrically opposed to one another as could be.”
Carlos, though, is about as phony as a three dollar bill. He lives in one of the most upscale neighborhoods in San Rafael, CA. He and his wife, Deborah are also being sued by his former personal assistant for wrongful termination. The reason? The assistant wasn't "spiritually evolved" enough for Carlos the Enlightened. In a Marin IJ interview last year, Carlos showed his former assistant great love by calling him a “parasite,” adding he (Santana) didn't believe in rewarding a parasite.
But Carlos' idea of spirituality is not the traditional. While he used to have a guru for many years, Santana is now a Unitarian, which (according to its website) is "... a liberal religion (surprise!!!) -- that is, a religion that keeps an open mind to the religious questions people have struggled with in all times and places. We believe that personal experience, conscience and reason should be the final authorities in religion, and that in the end religious authority lies not in a book or person or institution, but in ourselves."
In other words, who needs God? Each one of us is God. What a perfect religion for the 1960’s Selfish Generation.
Yet for all the stoned-out peace and love 1960's rhetoric comes the biggest hypocrisy. Santana is a fan of Communist murderer (and hero to legions of white middle-class kids) Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Carlos did the music for the pro-Che film "The Motorcycle Diaries" and wore a Che shirt to last year's Oscar ceremony (see photo above).
Recently, Henry Luis Gomez (author of trenblindado.com) and his wife were visiting the Bay Area had an encounter with Carlos at a restaurant in Sausalito. Gomez got Santana's attention by showing the guitarist his "Che Is Dead, Get Over It!" T-shirt. (To see how Carlos responded, click here.)
We're awaiting word if Carlos is going to join overseas America bashers The Dixie Hicks for their "I Hate America Tour", playing everywhere in the world but America.

With that said, Marooned in Marin would like to invite Rush Limbaugh to adopt a stretch of, say, Hwy 101 here in liberal Marin County. How about a section of highway from Mill Valley to San Rafael, to really drive the snooty, anti-American, socialists of Southern Marin out of their minds!
Conversely, a section of road adopted by Maha Rushie would be something we conservatives in Marin could point to with pride.
How 'bout it Rush?
I predicted to my wife this morning (after we heard the news) that these people would bash America for the invasion. Can you believe the nerve of these people? I guess they practice the Dhimmi Carter brand of "Christianity" where you embrace dictators and terrorists.

How about censuring the worst President in American history (and born-again hypocrite) Dhimmi Carter?
Well, that's what Melanie Morgan, co-chair of Move America Forward, as well as mother of the successful Recall Gray Davis campaign, has in mind.
The genesis for the idea was a column she wrote for WorldNetDaily. From there, people asked if she would launch a petition drive for censuring Carter.
Please take time to sign the petition and forward it to friends and family. Go to CensureCarter.com to sign the petition and view photos of Carter unashamedly hanging out with the enemies of America.
If you haven't had the chance yet, please visit Move America Forward and see all the great things they are doing to support our men and women in uniform. You can also hear Melanie on weekday mornings from 5 to 9 a.m. on KSFO-AM 560 for the best morning talk show in the Bay Area.
According to the article, 13 students were arrested and the protest was led by (as theorized in our original coverage Monday evening) the People's Revolutionary Organization.

Why the IJ has an entertainment writer doing a hard news piece is puzzling to me in the first place. Having worked in the field, I never remember the paper I interned at giving the music writer a hard news assignment.
Yet, Liberatore is a lefty, as noted earlier here. Since the IJ has an obvious anti-war stance (except when Democrats are dropping the bombs) who better to give this assignment to.
He doesn't disappoint his editors. In the lead, he tells how one mother never imagined her son would join the military or be an officer "engaged in a seemingly endless war in the Middle East." Like all Lefties, Liberatore seems to have forgotten how America was attacked on September 11, 2001. Maybe his worldview is shaped too much by fatboy Michael Moore.
But here's the money paragraph:
"Whether they were originally for or against the war is beside the point. For them, this is beyond politics. It's a daily reality. And maybe if they lived in another, more conservative and less affluent part of the country, where the military is one of the few economic options available for young people, they wouldn't feel quite so alone, so different from their neighbors."
Liberatore repeats the big lie about those who join the military. This is a similar attitude that was shown by Law and Order star Richard Belzer recently on "Real Time with Bill Maher."
"...You think everyone over there is a college graduate? They're 19 and 20-year-old kids who couldn't get a job......It's this patronizing thing that people have about if you're against the war everyone's lumped together. You know, the soldiers are not scholars, they're not war experts."
That's how the elite, snotty Left like Richard Belzer and Paul Liberatore view those who serve in the military. In their condescending eyes, those who serve are not that bright or very educated. The military was the only place for these poor folks to get a job. On top of that, they're probably just rednecks from the South who wave the flag every Fourth of July and Memorial Day.
Hey Paul (yes, you too Richard), did ever occur to you that people serve because they LOVE their country? They feel gratitude for the blessings and freedom America has to offer. In return, they wish to give back as others did before them. These men and women are the ones who sacrifice so the selfish Leftist snobs of Marin can do nothing but take what this nation offers and only give their middle finger in return.
Then again, the only homegrown soldiers the Lefties in Marin show support for are those who join the enemy, like "Ratboy" Johnny Walker Lindh.

This mini-van was blocked by a few of the students, one of which decided to lie down in front of the car. One student held a sign reading "No War For Oil" (and what do you use to get to and from school, plus your protests, son?).
This was how it started, the group stood in the middle of the road, yelling.
Motorists had to drive around the students. In the above photo, one held a sign (barely legible in this photo) which reads "F*** Your Lies."
When Petaluma's Finest showed up to put a stop to this mess, the students locked arms and (like robots) repeated the typical Leftist chants. "One, Two, Three, Four, We don't want your War and some gibberish about the First Amendment. I guess their teachers didn't teach these kids that the First Amendment doesn't mean you can block traffic or yell "Fire" in a crowded theatre.
The police had plastic handcuffs ready and a few of the students disbursed, while others decided to stay in the road. At this point, my wife and I had to leave the area for an appointment. I made a call to the Petaluma Police Department to find out if any arrests were made, but no one got back with me. I also wanted to see who was behind this event. After my unsuccessful attempt to talk to the police, I checked the internet. On the website for International ANSWER (the WWP Stalinist front group) there was a listing for "student walkouts to the two Army recruitment centers in our county, demanding they halt their recruitment efforts on our campuses" that was to take place in Petaluma at noon. The group behind the protest is called Peoples Revolutionary Organization. Democratic Underground, the meeting place for the grassroots and extremists in the Party of Treason, also had a post repeating the information on ANSWER's website. I'm pretty sure the same group was behind this escapade on Petaluma's streets. Some of the students wore fatigues, with one wearing a Stop Campus Recruiting sign taped to his back.

This weekend marks the third anniversary of the start of the Iraq war. MSM outlets kept repeating sounds and images of the rallies against the war this weekend. Like a hypnotist, these never ending polls, plus images and quotes from these rallies are media props, attempting to put America to sleep.
But there's a problem even the MSM can't hide. Attendance at these rallies is down!
"The micro-protests that have taken place around the third anniversary – including a few hundred who gathered to hear anti-war speeches in the affluent DC neighborhood of Dupont Circle – pale by comparison with the monster demonstrations against the Vietnam war," noted Christopher Swann in his Financial Times story "Quiet disapproval in US marks war’s anniversary."
In San Francisco, where up to 65,000 people attended rallies against the war in February and March of 2003, approximately 2,000 protesters showed up for a march, according to some eyewitnesses. There are even claims that protest organizers paid laborers to carry signs, in order to bolster their numbers.
Something doesn't add up here. If the almighty mainstream media (CNN, ABC, SeeBS, MSNBC, NBC, The New York Slimes, The Washington Compost, etc) is correct with their poll numbers, logic says there should be record crowds at these rallies, right?
So what's missing here? While some may question about the war and the aftermath, I don't think opposition to the war is as high as claimed. Nor do I think many Americans feel it is a lost cause. These polls only reflect the hopes and dreams of the Left. This is obvious not only in the polls, but in the daily coverage. Democrats in Congress daily attack the war, saying it is unwinnable. They attack the military and call the Commander-in-Chief "incompetent." They say we need more allies and attack the ones we have, calling them "the Coalition of the Bribed."
The sympathetic liberal media joins in by giving these lawmakers an outlet without fear of challenge to their positions. They ignore progress made in Iraq by only focusing on the day's roadside bomb and the casualties it caused. Parents who’ve lost a loved one in Iraq yet say the mission should be finished are all but ignored in the news. Instead, the MSM anointed a mother whose grief was manipulated and exploited by the far Left as spokesperson of all these parents.
Most of America isn’t buying what the MSM is selling. They read different points of view on the internet, hear it on talk radio or from a family member who’s serving in Iraq. Yet with plummeting ratings and circulation, do you think the MSM will take notice and switch gears? Don’t hold your breath. They’ll arrogantly continue on with the same coverage, this time, only redoubling their efforts to try and fool you.

As with all other IJ articles dealing with the War on Terrorism, Halstead's article continues to show the IJ's bias in favor of war opponents.
"I don't believe the problems of the world should be solved by killing people" Louise Aldrich, a member of the Gray Panthers of Marin, told the IJ. That is insanity! Was fighting Nazis and the Imperial Japan wrong? People like Ms. Aldrich would be the first to surrender freedom, because they don't think it's worth fighting for.
But that's not all the "enlightenment" Ms. Aldrich had to offer readers. She went on to state that this war was somehow worse because "the President went in telling lies and not being honest with the people about why it was necessary."
Here is the heart of the problem. These people are not "anti-war." They are simply "anti-Bush" and (in many cases) anti-American plus anti-military. Speaking of "lies" where was Ms. Aldrich on Dec. 16th 1998 when then-President Bill Clinton (her hero, I'm sure) said the following.
"Earlier today, I ordered America's armed forces to strike military and security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces. Their mission is to attack Iraq's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors."
I don't remember Aldrich or any of these so-called "anti-war" types calling Clinton a liar. Nor did they call their beloved Marinites "Red" Lynn Woolsey and "Bouncing" Barbara Boxer liars. Both were in lock step support of Clinton's attack on Iraq,
BOXER: "The president had no choice but to act today....Anyone who questions the timing of his decision ignores the fact that we committed a month ago to act if [chief U.N. weapons inspector] Richard Butler reported that Saddam was not cooperating...These critics are blinded by political considerations."
WOOLSEY: ``I'd always prefer diplomacy over bombing, But even before the briefing tonight, I'd been on record all day long saying Saddam Hussein has proven time and again that his word is meaningless. He's a bully and he's threatening world peace....If he (Clinton) did nothing he would be accused of letting his personal problems affect his judgment....Those who are cynical, they'll find a way to criticize him one way or the other.''
Both today attack President Bush for finishing the job and seek his Impeachment. Does the term “partisan hypocrite“ come to mind for both?
Aldrich's group will be joined by the Marin Appeasement and Injustice Coalition, the sponsors of the San Rafael High School anti-military brainwashing session, profiled here in War Resistance 101 at San Rafael High School. (For more on the Appeasement & Injustice group, click here)
Halstead also mentioned another rally to be held in San Francisco tomorrow. One of the groups promoting that rally (how did this get by the IJ copy writer?) is the Party for Socialism and Liberation! When will Halstead will tell IJ readers that the main group leading the San Francisco rally, A.N.S.W.E.R., is a front group for the Stalinist Worker's World Party? It is also led by former LBJ Attorney General (and current Saddam Hussein Defense Attorney) Ramsey Clark.
On a side note. After receiving a tip, I went to the Novato School District offices and found a few fliers for the San Rafael event (mentioned earlier) still on a table in the lobby.
A receptionist in the superintendent's office said the District did not promote this event and assumed an outside group must have come in and placed it there.
Perhaps the Novato School District ought to police the desks in the lobby for material outside groups place there. It gives the impression they're promoting this radicalism. I seem to remember hearing on KSFO how one parent called San Rafael High and found out similar fliers were going to be passed out to students. The school decided not to pass them out after outraged parents called the school.
In the Name of God the Merciful
Presidency of the Republic
To the respectful Mr. M.A.M
Our source in Afghanistan No 11002 (for information about him see attachment 1) provided us with information that that Afghani Consul Ahmad Dahestani (for information about him see attachment 2) told him the following:
1. That Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban in Afghanistan are in contact with Iraq and it that previously a group from Taliban and Osama Bin Laden group visited Iraq.
2. That America has proof that the government of Iraq and Osama Bin Laden group have shown cooperation to hit target within America.
3. That in case it is proven the involvement of Osama Bin Laden group and the Taliban in these destructive operations it is possible that American will conduct strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
4. That the Afghani Consul heard about the subject of Iraq relation with Osama Bin Laden group during his stay in Iran.
5. In light of this we suggest to write to the Commission of the above information. Please view… Yours… With regards
Signature:……, Initials : A.M.M, 15/9/2001
Foot note: Immediately send to the Chairman of Commission
Pass this around to your Leftist friends who repeat the "Bush lied, people died" like brainwashed zombies from some cult. Wouldn't it be great to have an engraved apology from the MSM, most elected Democrats to President Bush and the military/ I'm not holding my breath.
Stay tuned for more details.

But many of us knew it was phony.
Need proof? Russ Feingold came out in favor of censuring President Bush over the NSA Terrorist Surveilance flap (see story).
This proves once again what I said earlier. Democrats don't see Islamofacists as the real enemy to America. In their eyes, the enemy is George W. Bush and conservatives. As many disagreements I have with Republicans (spending, cracking down on illegal immigration), there is NO WAY that Democrats can be allowed or trusted to have power.

Here's an excerpt:
"....For more than a quarter century, Israeli policy has been in conflict with that of the United States and the international community. Israel’s occupation of Palestine has obstructed a comprehensive peace agreement in the Holy Land, regardless of whether Palestinians had no formalised government, one headed by Yasir Arafat or Mahmoud Abbas, or with Abbas as president and Hamas controlling the parliament and cabinet. " (see LGF for more)
Hey Dhimmi, do you wanna do something useful. Go pound nails and lust in your heart. We're still having to clean up the mess you made (Iran) during your failed presidency. We don't need you making the world an even more dangerous place!

On MSNBC.com news comes this story Poll: Bush at low point, GOP support weakens.
After the recent SeeBS poll (34% approval), as well as other "polls" on the President's popularity (who, by the way, cannot run for re-election), I immediately became suspicious.
My doubts about the veracity of the poll were right. For more information on the makeup of this poll, see Here We Go Again - Another BS Poll From AP-Ipsos from the great folks at Ankle Biting Pundits.

From The Anchorage (Alaska) Daily News come this story by reporter Debra McKinney about Code Pinko's protest on International Womens Day.
"Decked in pink scarves, pink hats, pink skirts and pink pants, a group of women, and a few men, made a call for peace Wednesday afternoon.
'Honk for Peace,' their pink signs said.
'Bring them home.'
'Save USA: Dick, take George hunting.' "
I wonder what Lynn Woolsey has to say about this. As reported in January, she was one of 200 signators of this group's "Ugrent Peace Plan" to end the war in Iraq. The traitor John Murtha has also given Code Pinko support, as well as Howard Dean.
I wonder if Code Pinko is aware of Title 18, Chapter 41, Sect. 871 "Threats against President and successors to the Presidency." It contains the following.
a) Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits for conveyance in the mail or for a delivery from any post office or by any letter carrier any letter, paper, writing, print, missive, or document containing any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States, the President-elect, the Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President of the United States, or the Vice President-elect, or knowingly and willfully otherwise makes any such threat against the President, President-elect, Vice President or other officer next in the order of succession to the office of President, or Vice President-elect, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

"The (U.S.) military is placing teams of Special Operations troops in American embassies to gather intelligence on terrorists," wrote Thom Shanker & Scott Shane in a story headlined Elite Troops Get Expanded Role on Intelligence. Thus, whatever expanded role this military team was being used for has been compromised by this treasonous newspaper as well as the person who leaked it.
This newspaper is putting the lives of all Americans in jeapordy, by continously leaking material that damages our nation's fight against terrorism. Instead of stupid hearing about the "leak" of a donor to the Democratic party who held a desk job at the CIA, Congress should be investigating who is leaking this information.
At the same time, there should be punishment for Times publisher Arthur "Pinchy" Sulzberger Jr. for allowing this material to be published.
We are at war. Perhaps another mesaure should be taken, similar to that done 12 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor by Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was entitled Executive Order 8985.
"All Americans abhor censorship, just as they abhor war. But the experience of this and of all other Nations has demonstrated that some degree of censorship is essential in wartime, and we are at war....It is necessary to the national security that military information which might be of aid to the enemy be scrupulously withheld at the source," reads in part this executive order.
The same is true today as it was in 1941. Our government should not only protect us from those who wish to inflict terror, but also those who aid them by using a free press as their tool. This continuous leaking by the Times and other MSM outlets needs to stop.

Locally, The Rev. Jane Spahr, a lesbian San Rafael Presbyterian minister ,was cleared by a church commission of violating the Presbyterian constitution for marrying same-sex couples.
In Los Angeles, Cardinal Roger Mahony has called on Roman Catholics to embrace illegal aliens. He used an Ash Wednesday service urging defiance against a law passed by Congress in December which tightens border controls.
"I would say to all priests, deacons and members of the church that we are not going to observe this law." the bishop stated. He and other church leaders say this is adherence to Catholic teachings about "compassion."
Great. What's next? Is the good Bishop going to ask his flock to embrace bank robbers and murderers currently at large, all in the name of "compassion?"
But where are the messages condemning this culture from the pulpits of our churches? You have to search to find them. Most, like Cardinal Mahony & Rev. Spahr are only interested in preaching Left wing activism such as "social justice" or environmentalism. Other churches have forgotten their mission to minister to a troubled world and choose to be “inclusive“ or “open minded.” Thus, they shout "Amen" to today's culture. One example is San Francisco's Glide Memorial Church, which is so worldly that it is literally (as my father-in-law eloquently notes) "the nation's only Sunday morning nightclub."
Yet, there is no outrage from the pulpit about today's trash culture. If you think I sound alarmist about pop culture, do me a favor. Have a child of your own and you’ll contemplate it real quick.
You cannot turn on the TV without seeing some young girl shaking her derrière for the TV cameras and hearing all kinds of bad language (and that's not just on cable TV). Don't forget so-called "reality TV" where these fools are willing to eat bugs or any other item to win money. Turn on the radio and you'll run across stations where gutter (c)rap "music" is being played.
How about this little ditty?
"You know it's hard out here for a pimp (you ain't knowin)
When he tryin to get this money for the rent (you ain't knowin)
For the Cadillacs and gas money spent (you ain't knowin)
 Because a whole lot of
bitches talkin s**t (you ain't knowin)
 Will have a whole lot of bitches
jumpin ship (you ain't knowin)
....Man it seems like I'm duckin dodgin bullets everyday
Niggaz hatin on me cause I got, hoes on the tray
But I gotta stay paid, gotta stay above water
Couldn't keep up with my hoes, that's when s**t got harder..."
That's not just any song you'd hear on the radio. It won the Oscar last night for Best Song. This is the kind of garbage that has many in the black community, including jazz musician Wynton Marsalis, calling it a modern day minstrel show.
Yet where's Hollywood? They couldn't care less, as long as they're making the bucks. George "I'm proud to be out-of-touch" Looney is nowhere to be found in criticizing this music which is not only degrading to women, but to black culture.
That is supposed to be the job of our ministers and clergy and they're failing their flocks, most importantly, the younger generation. Immorality, to them, seems to be if you voted for George W. Bush, support the War on Terrorism or the noble concept of self-sufficiency (that's called getting a job!). God forbid they attack or condemn immoral behavior coming from today's "entertainment." They're too afraid of being called a redneck, or just plain old intolerant for doing so.

Recently, rallies have been held in Washington D.C. and New York to support Denmark in the wake of Muslim riots reacting to the Mohammed cartoons published in a Danish newspaper.
This Friday, between noon to 1 p.m., there will be a rally to support Denmark, as well as the assualt on free speech due to the fear tactics used against those who publish the cartoons.
The rally will be held at the Danish Consulate, located at One California St., Suite 330.
Participants are encourage to bring Danish and American flags, Danish products, as well as pro-Denmark and free speech signs.
The rally is being organized by Bay Area Conservative Columnist (and friend of Marooned in Marin) Cinnamon Stillwell. Please visit her website or contact her for more information.

Interestingly, the student newspaper at the university recently printed the Danish cartoons of Mohammed, over which Muslims worldwide have rioted.
For more coverage, see Michelle Malkin, A Jihadist In North Carolina and Little Green Footballs, UNC-Chappel Hill Attack Motive: Islamic Rage.
This time, it is AP. They reported on March 1 that President Bush was warned the day before Hurricane Katrina made landfall "that the storm could breach levees in New Orleans." Yet, as Polls & Pundits pointed out, there was a difference between what the President was told and what the AP reported in another MSM attempt to "Get Bush." As shown in the Drudge Report, AP was forced to issue a correction.
For more debunking of the MSM lies surrounding Hurricane Katrina, see also this from Sweetness and Light. Yes, Bush knew about Katrina....and he called for evacuations. It was local officials (Nagin & Blanco) who dropped the ball.
All lies, all the time

Those were the words Aimee Allison at San Rafael High School on Thursday night, as reported by Jennifer Gollan of the Marin IJ. Allison was one of three "veterans" who gave an audience, including some students, a one-sided view against military recruiters.
Gollan’s story promoting the rally in Monday’s IJ was the source of our post War Resistance 101 at San Rafael High School. Nowhere in Gollan’s piece in Friday’s IJ was mention made of the outrage expressed towards school administrators Wednesday morning by parents who heard news of this rally on KSFO-AM‘s Lee Rodgers & Melanie Morgan Show.
Marooned In Marin went to San Rafael High School to get a closer look at the action. Though I did not go into the forum (there was no way I was going to give money to fund their treason) what I saw outside (as well as some of the people I encountered) gave an explanation of what this rally was really about. It was far from an “informative forum” about military recruitment. In reality, it was nothing but another anti-war, anti-American, anti-military rally held by a bunch of 1960's radicals.
From the parking lot leading to the auditorium were two "broken cross" symbols used by appeaseniks as "the peace sign." On the backs of these were messages such as "Healthcare Not Warfare" (let socialism will cure the world!), "Forgiving Not Fighting" and (my favorite) "Hugging Not Hating." Interesting sign from a group of people who are filled with nothing but immense hatred of George W. Bush, America, the military and Israel. (see photos)
A crowd was in the room outside the auditorium, waiting for the forum to begin. I could see that a voter registration booth was set up at the table to register voters.
For idea of the type of people who showed up at this event, look the handmade sign on at this car. (see photo) The driver also had a bumper sticker for Code Pinko. Right after taking this photo, I was interrogated by a rather paranoid character; a gray haired, upper middle-class lady in a new Volvo station wagon.
"Why are you taking pictures of cars?" She inquired.
"Why? Is there a crime for taking a picture of a car?" I replied.
"I assume you work for our f--king government" she shot back at me, heading off for a parking place. The bumper of her car had three stickers side by side, each read "Fire Rove."
Other people I encountered who were headed toward the rally had an animated look on their faces. It was like a revival meeting for these Leftists, as well as an opportunity to baptize younger people into their cesspool of anti-Americanism.
"I think it's unfortunate that some unprivileged kids are forced to sign up because of their situation" Chris Baker, a junior at San Rafael High, told the IJ.
Wrong. According to American Forces Press Service on November 27, 2005, a Defense Department study shows the military is more educated than the population at large. Their study also shows that fewer recruits are from poor or wealthy families, that military members are mostly from the middle-class.
I really can't blame this misguided young man for his comments, nor the Tam High student who started an anti-recruiter website. They're mostly victims of the environment they grew up in. Perhaps their parents, many of their teachers plus this 1960's crowd have repeatedly told them the lie that only poor people are forced to join the military. Therefore, these kids believe it because they've probably never heard an alternative point of view, especially here in Marin County.
What really has these Leftists all up in arms, they say, is a No Child Left Behind Act requirement that military recruiters are provided with contact information of students. According to a San Rafael City Schools Press Release, parents do have the right to approve a waiver where they authorize the school to withhold their child's name from the military recruiters. So what's the big deal? Why didn’t the school have someone on hand to tell this to the crowd Thursday?
Because these Leftists who organized this event really don’t want parents to have the choice. They just want the military off campuses period. Why? Because these blame-America-first types like the Appeasement and Injustice Coalition have nothing but hate and contempt for the military. And that, my friends, is the truth.
I urge San Rafael City Schools to, in the interest of fairness, give a pro-America group a chance to have a similar forum at the school in the near future. It’s way past time for parents and students to get both sides of the story.

Behind this attempt at sabotage during a time of war is the Marin Peace & Justice Coalition, along with two other groups: the San Francisco Chapter of Veterans for Peace and Marin County Hope Inc. While commonly portrayed as an "anti-war" or "peace" group, the MPJC is anything but. They are, in reality, a "blame America first" group that continuously takes sides against America and Israel.
Almost two weeks after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the MPJC was out in force in San Rafael. They occupied a corner of 3rd & Irwin streets on Friday afternoons to rally against a military response upon those behind the attacks. They held signs urging "No Bombs" others calling for an end to sanctions against Saddam Hussein's Iraq, as well as desecrated American flags (no 50 stars in the blue field, only the “broken cross“ symbol). Some evenings, they had a portable stereo where radical hip-hop music was played or, on many occasions, The Internationale.
A contingency of patriotic counter-protesters appeared in the weeks that followed, who endured harassment at times from several MPJC members.
Lynn Woolsey, Marin County's embarrassment in Congress, was a participant in a December 2002 MPJC event. Woolsey dressed as Santa Claus and held a sign which read "Santa Claus for Peace."
Parades on patriotic holidays have been targets of the MPJC for attacking America. They entered the 2002 Larkspur July 4th parade and encouraged members to join a Novato appeasement group in the 2004 & 2005 Novato 4th of July parade. They also hijacked a parade honoring the people who died defending the MPJC's right to spew their anti-American bile, the Mill Valley Memorial Day Parade. That ended in 2005 due to an incident which happened the prior year.
In the 2004 Mill Valley parade, a MPJC member held a sign calling for Ariel Sharon to be tried as a war criminal. Additionally, as reported in the May 28, 2005 Marin IJ, leaflets were handed out during the parade saying "Jews are responsible for 9/11." The group denied passing out the leaflets and the parade committee asked for an apology. According to the parade chairperson, the "apology" letter consisted of "we are sorry" and then "a diatribe about Palestine and that Israel was the aggressor."
In regards to Israel/Palestine conflict, the MPJC sponsored a "Palestine/Israel Film Festival" in July 2004 at Mill Valley's Throckmorton Theater. The idea behind the festival was "to encourage dialogue and discussion about one of the most critical issues of our time." Yet, as JewishPress.com pointed out, the film festival was a one sided event, where films and speakers had a pro-Palestine/anti-Israel point of view. One of the films shown, "Jenin, Jenin," is essentially a piece of Palestinian propaganda which states the Israelis massacred Palestinians. This claim was debunked by even the United Nations and Amnesty International, among others.
By attacking the military and military recruitment, the MPJC proves how they and their fellow travelers are nothing but the parasites of freedom. They only take freedom for their use, but never want to give back to protect it. Their "see no evil, hear no evil" mentality is no defense against our nation‘s enemies, it would only lead to enslavement and tyranny.
