Crawford Peace House in deep doo-doo

Start the dirge, folks. This could very well be The End:

Anti-war group in McLennan County loses it’s corporate status

Aside: That concerns simply the Peace House's state paperwork. That's not the half of their problems. Read on.

Their questions began in the summer of 2005, when the nearly bankrupt Crawford Peace House gained national attention as the rallying point for Cindy Sheehan and other anti-war demonstrators near President Bush's ranch.

According to members, donations to the organization came pouring in at that time.

"There were buckets of money that came in. There were thousands and tens of thousands that came in. In cash and in checks.

[Reporter] You saw this? I was there. I’ve been there. I watched them collect it," former member Sara Oliver said.

Oliver said she and other members were told by directors roughly $700,000 in all was donated.

Several years later, Peace House officials tell NBC 6 News there's now only about $11,000 in the organization's account.

And lest we forget who's involved with the Peace House:

A spokesperson for the Texas Comptroller said if a Texas corporate charter is forfeited, officers or directors can become personally liable for any debts incurred by that entity.

One of the directors of the Peace House is Cindy Sheehan.

As word of this spreads, expect more of the moonbats to blame President Bush like this.

Got a radio plug

Conservative radio host Andrea Shea King plugged (not as in "shot") me on her show today in regards to the effigy issue below. Very cool. Thanks, Andrea!

Moonbats "occupy" Washington, D.C.

They just keep getting weirder and weirder:
13 Iraq war veterans in full desert camo going on "patrol" from Union Station to Arlington National Cemetery. They carried imaginary assault rifles, barked commands, roughly "detained" suspected hostiles with flex cuffs and hoods -- and generally shocked, frightened and delighted tourists and office workers.

"How does occupation feel, D.C.?!" shouted Geoff Millard, head of the local chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War, who previously served on a brigadier general's staff in Tikrit.

They cut a swath across downtown, taking imaginary sniper fire and casualties on the grounds of the Capitol and the Washington Monument, scouting the White House, performing mock arrests at the foot of the Capitol steps and a vehicle search on the Mall. At the Capitol, the veterans almost got detained themselves by civilian peace officers with real guns. The vets brought their act to a military recruiting station on L Street NW and concluded with a memorial ceremony in the cemetery.

UPDATE: To commentor "Guess," whose rant was far too rude and vulgar (what's with liberals and rude/vulgar comments?) to approve, no, I don't have a double standard. These people are moonbats because they're a bunch of lunatics. People can come back from service in Iraq and be critical of the war, but to do something like this is just bizarre. It's like those clowns who "protested" by acting out their idea of how Israeli soldiers act towards Palestinians. You can protest, march, chant, etc., but there's a line where it changes into insanity. These people crossed that line. There have been plenty of people who've come back from Iraq who criticize our presence there who I don't criticize because they do it in a sane fashion.

Brainwashing the next generation of troop-haters (UPDATE: video added)


UPDATE: Heya, fellow Michelle fans! Thanks for stopping by! And mega-thanks to Michelle for the link.

UPDATE 2: Removed due to problems at the linked blog.

UPDATE 3: The photographer, Rachel Palinkas, has asked that I remove the photo. (She asked Michelle, too.) Ms. Palinkas objections to the use of these photos can be found here (which mentions me - cool!): Portland war protest photos light a fire on the Internet. Rachel states, ""What they're doing is wrong. They're twisting my pictures and misrepresenting what happened on that day." Oh, really? So a soldier's effigy wasn't burned in front of at least one child? You portray these people as "extremists," Rachel, but what proof of that claim do you have? Hating the troops is commonplace in this country right now. Major blogs and websites like DailyKos and Democrat Underground are rife with troop-hating and it is commonplace among anti-war rallies.

UPDATE 4: There is now video available of the effigy burning:

You can clearly see the man and his daughter watching the effigy burning. A commenter (whose comment I didn't approve because of it's moonbatty rudeness) asked how I knew this man and his daughter weren't just passersby. Admittedly, I don't, but it's very doubtful that they were. I can tell you that as a parent, there's no way I would stand there and let my kids watch this disgusting event if I were just a passerby.

UPDATE 5: A polite request to Ms. Palinkas has resulted in no proof of copyright from her, so back goes the picture. If she gets around to proving her copyright claim, I'll remove it again.

The, uh, Democrats, er, plan? Um, for, you know, Iraq, uh, and, you know, stuff... I think...

The Democrats try to explain their latest plan for our troops. Hilarity ensues:

Thank goodness these people are in charge now! Such clarity!

Mensa crackpot runs and hides

Commenter "carlitos" just let me know that Karen Cyson has had her email - and only HER email - removed from the page where I found it.


Minnesota Mensa Board of Directors (Yahoo! cache)

And after:

Minnesota Mensa Board of Directors

I almost fell out of my seat laughing when I saw that for myself.


Brainwashing our kids with socialism


A private school in Seattle (big surprise there) has banned Legos because private ownership is bad and "a class-based, capitalist society [is] unjust and oppressive."

What. EVER!!!!
So they first explored with the children the issue of ownership. Not all of the students shared the teachers' anathema to private property ownership. "If I buy it, I own it," one child is quoted saying.

Give that kid an A+! (Unfortunately, I'm betting he was chided for that comment.)

The teachers then explored with the students concepts of fairness, equity, power, and other issues over a period of several months.

At the end of that time, Legos returned to the classroom after the children agreed to several guiding principles framed by the teachers, including that "All structures are public structures" and "All structures will be standard sizes." The teachers quote the children:

"A house is good because it is a community house."

"We should have equal houses. They should be standard sizes."

"It's important to have the same amount of power as other people over your building."

How sick is that? I say we go to this school or even to the teachers' homes and just start taking whatever we want while spouting off the nonsense they are brainwashing these kids with.

Man alive!
