Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

O'Reilly Factor Correspondences. (With minor proofreading and editing.)

"Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Janeane?"
Janeane Garofalo asked for comment on a "Tea Party" sign that displayed the catch-phrase, "Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Willis?"
I submit that it is an integrated popular cultural expression conveying a very appropriate emotional response to the financial goings-on in the U.S. Government: Suspicion!
"Whatcha talkin' 'bout, Janeane?"
(Wikipedia sez:Suspicion is an emotion of mistrust in which a person doubts the honesty of another person or believes another person to be guilty of some type of wrongdoing or crime, but without sure proof.)

(Update:6-13-09, supplemental content added.)

(What stimulus was Janeane Garafalo actually responding to? The same stimulus that the "Tea Parties" themselves are a response to: the binary regime "T-aking E-vasive A-ction" by attempting to deflect a direct First Amendment Petition to a diffusionary, incoherent, politically binarized, and pointlessly celebritized "public demonstration" under the disinformative banner "T-axed E-nough A-lready". I'll give you a codekey: "synapses/neurological problem". Elaboration forthcoming. As promised, it will be impossible to miss.)

Brilliant incite.
Mr. O'Reilly,
You have such brilliant incite. Implicit in the use of the word "peacably" in the text of the First Amendment is the exclusion of violence or incitement to violence from its legal protection. Implicit in the use of the words "the government" in the text of the First Amendment is the exclusion of private residences and places of business for public demonstrations. (Pass the word to ACORN, "organized labor" and "Critical Mass", won't ya?) If they have a grievance, they need to bring suit in a court of law. Such demonstrations are wrongful, unlawful harrassment. (Wow! Ya'd never know it in the post-"progressive", 20th and 21st century United States of America, would ya? We can't be bothered by a trivial little thing like "the domestic tranquility" when self-styled "have-nots" can't get their way!)

Harry S.Truman a war criminal?
Harry S.Truman a war criminal?
When "the Left" proclaims that "war is not the answer", it is usually aimed at suppressing an American response to criminal aggression. What they omit to address is that the most reliable way to persuade criminal aggressors that "war is not the answer" (their purported objective) is the certainty of a resolute and decisive retaliatory response (which certainty they invariably call into question). Harry S. Truman decisively persuaded the Japanese Nation that "war is not the answer" to the historically inarguable benefit of all concerned. Would "the Left" please help in keeping would-be aggressors persuaded that "war is not the answer"? (If that is indeed their intent.)

Opposing points of view. (1-27-09 TPM)
Mr. O'Reilly,
You have it exactly backwards. One should value the person who holds an opposing point of view, even if their point of view is detestable. You require people to respect opposing points of view. This is an amoral value. Amoral does not mean neutral, it means anti-moral. Should one respect the views of Hitler? Ahmadinejad? Charles Manson? Nancy Pelosi? Certainly not. Should one value them as people? Absolutely.

Matt Damon's opinion
Does Matt Damon really believe that things like eyes and flight are the result of uncounted trillions of "lucky" random mutations? Because, I mean, he presumes to pass judgment on Gov. Palin's views and that raises serious questions about his qualifications...

Notice how self-congratulatory the "Young Turks" are about the "superiority" they share with Matt Damon.

In re: when consensual sex becomes rape.

Hebrews 13:4

4Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Sure eliminates a lot of confusion in sexual decision-making, don't it?

Megan Kelly consistently argues for individual liberty.

Lis Wiehl consistently argues for collectivist tyranny.

Check it out.

Clueless kids.

Mr. O'Reilly,
The reason kids are clueless about civics, etc. is the same reason the "left" exists in America: material abundance. If Americans did not enjoy so much leisure and plenty, no one would have time to indulge the ideological hypocrisy and parasitism of liberal socialists, and parents would not tolerate anyone indoctrinating their children with a philosophy of narcissistic, anti-social self indulgence and quasi-intellectual delusions of unfounded moral superiority. They'd be too busy putting them to work to shoulder their share of the family load.

Ezekiel 16:48-50

48As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

49Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

50And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

(Is that pecksniffian bloviating,or too popinjay-esque?)

Marc Lamont Hill, PH.D., and Ward Churchill dismissal

How would Dr. Hill characterize this statement?
"All socialists advocate slavery and those that benefit from socialist entitlements such as welfare are, in fact, LITTLE SLAVE MASTERS". (Ward Churchill's "Eichmanns" comments, if Dr. Hill's summary is accurate, are an example of this advocacy.)
I think President Lincoln would characterize it as true:
Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address
One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union even by war, while the Government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God's assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men's faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged.

Dr. Richard Dawkins

Dr. Richard Dawkins made the assertion that the founding fathers of the United States were secularists. That is a lie (hyperlink added for clarification at time of blog post) and therefore "spin". The founding fathers were avidly non-SECTARIAN in their philosophy of government. Atheism was criminal and antithetical to the government they founded, and the government of today that tolerates policies that decriminalize atheism is demonstrably NOT the government that they outlined in the U.S. Constitution and other founding documents. Therefore, you are a failure as a "cultural warrior" and the "spin" goes right past you.

Isaiah Washington segment. 1-25-07

Labeling Isaiah Washington's use of the word "faggot" as "bad behavior", while implicitly elevating those who elect a homosexual identity to the status of an oppressed minority in need of special legal, social and political protection as you and Belisa Vranich did in this segment proves that your "culture warrior" persona is camouflage for your role as a diffuser of cohesion in social and cultural resistance to the New World Order, which itself coheres around this unifying and definable principle: anti-Christ. This "rehab"-like atmosphere surrounding Mr. Washington's choice of words, set against the backdrop of his costar's choice of deathstyle, is typical of the Orwellian socio-psychological assault on diversity and personal liberty being waged against the rank and file sheep by the New World Order oligarchy. To describe this warped set of priorities in another way:
Matthew 23

24Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

25Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

26Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

27Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

28Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

Christ calls people to first clean their hearts by repentance and reconciliation to God and neighbor, while the New World Order compels outward conformity, as typified by the approach of Belisa Vranich and those she speaks for. The New World Order is making the world safe for sociopathic predators, like the devil.

A mindless Christian fundamentalist

Finding WMDs

Mr. O'Reilly,
On your radio show, you said the war in Iraq was about WMDs. It wasn't.Saddam's proclivity for using them in international aggression is closer to the mark. It was about UN security council resolutions.The regime refused to comply. We are enforcing the resolutions that the UN security council did not have the testicular fortitude to enforce itself: Disarmament. Remember? Keep it straight. You're spinning.
Counsel to the United States President elect on the Mideast Peace Process. (Sent to the Obama office of pres. elect website prior to Inauguration.)

The root of the Israeli/ Palestinian conflict is that the "Palestinian" cause is rooted in a lie: that the sovereign nation of Israel occupies land that was once a sovereign "Palestinian" nation.
The solution to the conflict is to replace the lie with the truth: "Palestine" (a name stamped upon the land of Judah in subjugatory malice and contempt by the occupying Roman Empire to emphasize the forcible dissolution and dispersal of the Jewish Nation ca. 70 A.D.) was ALWAYS either occupied by some foreign power or was a sovereign Jewish Nation since the conquest of the land of CANAAN (a long vanished culture) in the days of Joshua, Moses' successor in the leadership of the Jewish People. There has never been a sovereign "Palestinian" nation nor indigenous "Palestinian" culture. The fabrication of the "Palestinian cause" is a foil for what is otherwise naked and malicious Islamic bigotry, intolerance and aggression, or, to cloak it in its Islamic "religious" camouflage: Jihad.
Jihad means that there is only one solution that is acceptable: Caliphate and Sharia. When the Islamic side of a dispute is militarily inferior, meaningless negotiations ( as in the ridiculous "Two State Solution" concept) are permissible under Jihad until such time as the military inferiority ceases to be an impediment to violent conquest. This is why every time agreements are made, as in Oslo, or Camp David, (remember Anwar Sadat?) or wherever, the "Arab Street" erupts in agitations and violence. Its a game of "keep-away" until the acceptable Jihadic solution, Caliphate and Sharia, is realized.
Islam is an immanent ideology, like "liberation theology", secular humanist materialistic socialism, the New World Order, the Third Reich, Imperial Japan, the Tower of Babel, etc. Immanent ideologies envision a socio-political-economic ideal and then marshal materialistic human resources to achieve it in this material world. The bad part about immanent ideologies is that they encounter the obstacles of innate human independence, individual autonomy, and self-interest, and measures taken to overcome these obstacles result in totalitarianism of one form or another, often resulting in genocide and subsequent wars of liberation (with the remarkable exception of the Tower of Babel, where the Divine tactic of confounding their language resulted in what was essentially a bloodless coup. God's solutions work. Man's don't. Immanent ideologies are universally delusional.) The good part about immanent ideologies is that there is no good part, so we in America needn't trouble with them, unless they conflict with the transcendant ideology that found its origins in Judeo-Christian Holy Writ and its expression in our Constitution. Transcendant ideologies leave ultimate resolution of human problems out of human hands, wisely recognizing that they far exceed human limitations.
Here are a couple of examples of transcendant ideology from Scripture:

Jeremiah 29
4Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, unto all that are carried away captives, whom I have caused to be carried away from Jerusalem unto Babylon;

5Build ye houses, and dwell in them; and plant gardens, and eat the fruit of them;

6Take ye wives, and beget sons and daughters; and take wives for your sons, and give your daughters to husbands, that they may bear sons and daughters; that ye may be increased there, and not diminished.

7And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.

8For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed.

9For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

10For thus saith the LORD, That after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.

11For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

12Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

13And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

14And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

John 18

33Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?

34Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

35Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

36Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

37Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

38Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

The truth is that Islam cannot live in peace with its neighbors and remain authentic Islam. Regrettably, as an immanent ideology, it must either prevail or be destroyed. Negotiations are only steps on the path to the former. If that is not the outcome we are seeking, then the latter is the only choice. ( This "War on Terror" is a pointless, wasteful, totalitarianistic, delusional, immanent solution in its own right. The world will be greatly relieved when we as a nation return to the common sense notion that we are not, in fact, God.) Speak the truth about the "Palestinian cause" and its Jihadist objectives, and choose this day which outcome an Obama Administration will seek. An immanent Islamic "peace" or a transcendant American peace similar to the post WWII era? Win or ultimately lose? The longer we put it off, the more difficult the decision, and the effort to win, will be. In either case, let's dispense with costly, delusional, immanent solutions and return to a pragmatic, affordable, workable, transcendant national policy going forward.

Broken Arrow.

The Fizz Bizz First Campaign. ( Whiskey II : A stipulation of the First Amendment Petition entitled "Operation Broken Arrow" .)

Whereas the "Environmental Protection Agency" has classified the gas Carbon Dioxide as a "pollutant" , and whereas all alcoholic beverages and carbonated beverages generate Carbon Dioxide as a byproduct of their production and consumption, and whereas alcoholic and carbonated beverages are a discretionary, as opposed to an essential, part of a thriving economy, and whereas energy production and consumption are an essential, as opposed to a discretionary, part of a thriving economy, it is hereby resolved that a moratorium on all regulatory efforts under the pretext of limiting the generation of Carbon Dioxide against the production and consumption of energy be imposed and remain in force until such time as the production and consumption of alcoholic and carbonated beverages has been effectively banned and caused to cease.

To augment prejudice in favor of making a ban and the cessation of the production and consumption of alcoholic and carbonated beverages a mandatory pre-condition to the regulation of the production and consumption of energy, let the public call to mind the detrimental effects to the public health and safety caused by the consumption of alcoholic and carbonated beverages, and weigh those against the benefits of cheap and abundant energy to the public health and safety and the clauses in the Preamble to the United States Constitution regarding promoting the general welfare. Let the "Global Warming / Climate Change" movement put public health and safety in its proper, Constitutional place in their pusuit of limiting the generation of Carbon Dioxide in the United States of America by giving appropriate priority to the alcoholic and carbonated beverage industries in their regulatory efforts or face criminal charges for promoting policies that are clearly detrimental to the public health and safety and the general welfare of the American People.

Proposed Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for

Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed Rule.

SUMMARY: Today the Administrator is proposing to find that
greenhouse gases in the atmosphere endanger the public
health and welfare of current and future generations.
Concentrations of greenhouse gases are at unprecedented
levels compared to the recent and distant past. These high
atmospheric levels are the unambiguous result of human
emissions, and are very likely the cause of the observed
increase in average temperatures and other climatic
changes. The effects of climate change observed to date
and projected to occur in the future – including but not
limited to the increased likelihood of more frequent and
intense heat waves, more wildfires, degraded air quality,
more heavy downpours and flooding, increased drought,
greater sea level rise, more intense storms, harm to water
resources, harm to agriculture, and harm to wildlife and
ecosystems – are effects on public health and welfare
within the meaning of the Clean Air Act. In light of the
likelihood that greenhouse gases cause these effects, and
the magnitude of the effects that are occurring and are
very likely to occur in the future, the Administrator
proposes to find that atmospheric concentrations of
greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare within
the meaning of Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act. She
proposes to make this finding specifically with respect to
six greenhouse gases that together constitute the root of
the climate change problem: carbon dioxide, methane,
nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and
sulfur hexafluoride.

Excerpted from Wikipedia:

Fermentation in food processing typically refers to the conversion of sugar to alcohol using yeast under anaerobic conditions.
Ethanol fermentation (performed by yeast and some types of bacteria) breaks the pyruvate down into ethanol and carbon dioxide. It is important in bread-making, brewing, and wine-making. Usually only one of the products is desired; in bread-making, the alcohol is baked out, and, in alcohol production, the carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere or used for carbonating the beverage.

Beer is the world's oldest[1] and most widely consumed[2] alcoholic beverage and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea.[3] It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains—the most common of which is malted barley, although wheat, maize (corn), and rice are widely used.

Wine is an alcoholic beverage often made of fermented grape juice

Whisky or whiskey refers to a broad category of alcoholic beverages that are distilled from fermented grain mash.

A distilled beverage, liquor, or spirit is a drinkable liquid containing ethanol that is produced by means of distilling fermented grain, fruit, or vegetables.

The term spirit refers to a distilled beverage that contains no added sugar and has at least 20% ABV. Popular spirits include brandy, fruit brandy (aka eau-de-vie), gin, rum, tequila, vodka, and whisky.

Distilled beverages that are bottled with added sugar and added flavorings, such as Grand Marnier, Frangelico, and American schnapps, are liqueurs

A soft drink is a beverage that does not contain alcohol.

Carbonated soft drinks are commonly known as pop, soda pop, soda, coke or tonic in various parts of the United States, pop in Canada, fizzy drinks or soft drinks in the United Kingdom and Australia[1] and sometimes minerals in Ireland. The adjective soft specifies a lack of alcohol by way of contrast to the term "hard drink".

Carbonation occurs when carbon dioxide is dissolved in water or an aqueous solution. This process yields the "fizz" to carbonated water and sparkling mineral water, the head to beer, and the cork pop and bubbles to champagne and sparkling wine.
