Kafirs to the Islamists
COL Dooley has it right but he is just a few too many years ahead of his time. Yes, we are fighting a religious war and we will continue to do so until one side is gone.

Pat Condell does an excellent job of telling it like it is:

Worst Come Back Song Ever?
Having rocked out to Van Halen all through college and grad school, I pretty much gave up on the band ever making a come back especially during the on-again off-again reunion announcements of the late 90s -- early 2000s. It really got annoying and I finally just went back to listening to the old stuff figuring that was going to be it for my lifetime.
I enjoyed both flavors of the band, the David Lee Roth variety and Sammy Hagar as lead. Having the constant of Michael Anthony's driving bass and back-up voice gave a certain amount of continuity that allowed both the DLR and SH sounds to come through and establish themselves.
You can imagine the excitement of finally seeing them back together for the "A Different Kind of Truth" release in 2012. But what on earth were they thinking with putting out "Tattoo" as the opener? I have to admit, the tune does grow on you after listening to it a few times but is this really the right debut song for such a big event? We can only hope this is designed to just be a tickler and the rest of the album is worthy of the Van Halen name. At least the titles seem to suggest that this might be the case. Is there method to the madness?

So How's That GLB Thing Working Out For You?
Wow, what a week for Penn State. Looks like the freak show that academe has nurtured over the years through so-called diversity programs, speech codes, and an over abundance of gay-lesbian-bisexual (GLB) classes, clubs, degree programs, and other forms of disfunctionality has finally come back to roost so to speak. If you nurture this sort of disorientation, you eventually build a culture of acceptance, and accept it surely has. Decades of cover up by a too-big-to-fail athletic department has not only brought down the revered JoPa but has reached all the way to the President's House. Extraordinary!
So PS has a real fix on its hands now. The Michael Mann controversy will surely pale in comparison. If the NCAA has any balls, they'll shut down their entire athletic program for years. If the PS alumni have any scruples they'll vote with their check books. Once the criminal trials are complete, look for a whole host of civil cases. This will be interesting to watch.

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
For anyone not yet familiar with "Wild Bill for America", I urge you to check him out, He is an excellent spokesman for the Tea Party, and the morons at the various "Occupy Wall Street" venues could only hope they had a person as articulate.
His short videos are excellent and the "Execution Solution" is particularly first rate.
He should definitely be on the short list for any future White House communications director.
