For over a year I have been writing about the rockets that are fired and have been fired into the city of Sderot in Israel from Hamas in Gaza. These rockets have no guidance system in them. It is point, fire, hope that they kill someone. What they really do is to instill terror into a CIVILIAN POPULATION.
For 8 long years these rockets have fallen, they are falling now even though there is suppose to be a cease-fire in effect.
I received this letter last night. The author, Itzik Yarkoni asked me to pass this along to you, my readers.
With the result that Goldstone present to the UN Hamas' response to the Goldstone report that the missiles sent to Israel were "by mistake", I want to know if you would be interested in publishing my personal testimonial of life under Palestinian rocket fire, or life under the Hamas' "mistakes.Last week Hamas issued a statement saying that the rocket attacks on Israel were not aimed at civilian centers in Israel, only military ones. (Somebody check the woods for constipated bears, and check Rome, the Pope has converted to Judaism.)
They retracted it a day later.
Make no mistake, the so-called Palestinians have a single goal:
To achieve this goal they will lie, cheat, steal, and murder anyone who gets in their way.
You can help in the battle against Hamas. Become vocal. Don't be silent on this subject. Let others know about what is and has been happening to Sderot. Tell your family, friends, church/synagogue, pastor/rabbi, your Congressman or woman, your Senator, the President, your local newspaper. But don't be silent!
Secondly, remember people like Itzik Yarkoni and the other residents of Sderot in your prayers. You could sign up for Code Red Alerts, reminding you of the terror the men, women, and especially the children experience every day.
How long does any people have to be terrorized by the neighborhood bully before they will strike back?

It is the talk of the town and made me laugh out loud.
This is making the rounds. Originally people thought it was a photoshop image, then people started claiming to see it, but no one seems to know who bought the space and slapped it up.
These should be put up all across the country.

In a letter sent to Barack Obama, via The White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, House Republican Leader John Boehner and House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, defining the term "bipartisanship" seems to be the theme and a very good move.
'Bipartisanship' is not writing proposals of your own behind closed doors, then unveiling them and demanding Republican support. Bipartisan ends require bipartisan means.
Making the letter public, even a smarter move.
Boehner and Cantor's letter asks very clear concise questions to determine whether the GOP should even participate in what Obama calls a "health care summit" or whether Obama is simply trying to present some doc and pony show so he can claim he "tried".
The first question makes it clear that starting with the bills already on the table is unacceptable as they have already been rejected by the majority of Americans.
Assuming the President is sincere about moving forward on health care in a bipartisan way, does that mean he will agree to start over so that we can develop a bill that is truly worthy of the support and confidence of the American people? Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said today that the President is "absolutely not" resetting the legislative process for health care. If the starting point for this meeting is the job-killing bills the American people have already soundly rejected, Republicans would rightly be reluctant to participate.
No one can deny that the bills already in the House and Senate have been rejected by the majority of Americans, as we have shown time and time again, the averages from all the latest polls, from multiple polling organizations, show that 53+ percent of the American public has soundly rejected Obama and the Democrat's health care proposals.
Read the whole letter for yourself.
I said yesterday, the Republicans should take advantage of the forum Obama is providing to make the case of the majority of Americans and force the Democrats to publicly show themselves willing to completely ignore the majority just so they can jam through their own agenda.
As was rightly pointed out to me in the comments, that cannot work if Obama sets the prop, dictates the terms and writes the scripts.
This letter, and making the terms and conditions clear and demanding fairness and true bipartisanship, as Obama claims he is trying to do, the GOP have just lobbed the ball right back into Obama's court, just as publicly.
He can put his money where his mouth is, truly work in a bipartisan manner or he and the Democrats can sit at that table alone, on television and explain by themselves why they think they know better than the majority of Americans.
John Boehner greets Obama overtures with skepticism, wants to 'trust but verify' moves toward bipartisanship

The Guardian is running a poll about whether Sarah Palin could get elected President. She has been getting trashed both in votes and in the comments. I have been trying to get everybody to go vote and have succeeded in getting up it up 13 points from 23% but I need help. Here is what I have been posting on conservative sites:
The Guardian across the pond is running an online poll about whether Sarah could be elected President. Since the Guardian makes the New York Times seem to be a "conservative" paper, you can imagine what a beating Sarah is taking in both the votes and the comments. I posted a really snarky comment and voted yes. Why doesn't everyone here do the same? http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/poll/2010/feb/08/sarahpalin-usa.
The percentage has gone up from 23 to 32 in one hour. Get more people to vote. There is another article in the same rag that is so condescending, it infuriated me. The remarks are even worse. See: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2010/feb/08/opportunity-knocks-sarah-palin.
I was so mad, I had to comment as follows:
For all of you people who love to dump on Sarah Palin (and her family), I have but one reply: Let's see you do it and then you can talk. Could you as a mother of five (four back then) raise the money to run against the incumbent governor of your own political party and win in a primary? Could you top that by then beating a Democrat previous governor in the general election? Could you then run up an 80% approval rating as governor? If you truly think a clueless, no talent beauty queen could accomplish this, you do not know the first thing about American politics. The odds of pulling something like that off are 1000 to 1.
Now some of you are going to disparage the voters of Alaska as being stupid nincompoops. Just remember that a lot of Canada has the same climate. Would you be willing to carry a baby you know has Down's Syndrome to term (or want your wife to do it)? If you think you are so damn smart that you can make nasty comments about someone who has some real accomplishments in her resume unlike the American affirmative action President who really is clueless, let's see you do its equivalent.
