All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.



Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

Ah Jeez, put a sock in it!

Bill Clinton and free speech

I understand that the socialist states of Europe don’t like a person thinking anything that isn't approved of and have laws to punish anyone who publishes something outside the accepted ideology. That's their loss. Why be free when someone can tell you what to think, say or print in a newspaper? Please explain to me, why does a former American President (typing “former” is sooo cathartic) need to be in Taliban country promoting jail time for telling the truth? Even if a free press isn't in Europe's idea of democracy, it is part of America's. It's in that part of the Constituion that the Stainmaster didn't get around to reading in law school.

The cartoon incident reminds me of a child throwing a fit. Picture your 4 year old being told that he has bad manners because the throws a temper tantrum. Then picture the brat throwing himself on the floor kicking and screaming that he is a good child. I AM GOOD BOY! I AM! I AM! I AM! And I won't stop this hissy fit till you believe me.

Now picture the collective unwashed, uneducated, bus bombing, disco bombing, airliner bombing, building bombing, journalist beheading, (ok I understand that one) infidel killing, Religion of Peace; showing up in mass, rioting and killing to protest a few cartoons about violent Muslims. How or why the western world is susposed to treat Islam as anything other than a spoiled brat with guns and bombs waiting for a chance to use them, is a thought beyond comprehension.

American Democrats can’t spend enough money to support the “arts” in America, especially when it involves putting a crucifix of Jesus in a jar of urine, or elephant dung on the Virgin Mary. Just let a few newspapers reprint cartoons, that first ran in Muslim newspapers, tell the truth about rag heads being violent, and Bill Clinton will rush right over to “feel their pain”.

Two lists come to mind.

Things Bill Clinton thinks you should go to jail for:

1. Telling the truth, a problem he never seems to have.
2. Freedom of the press.

Things you shouldn’t go to jail for:

1. Importing cocaine to Arkansas
2. Sexual assault
3. Impeding a federal investigation
4. Perjury
5. Selling military secrets to China for campaign money
6. Killing the only man to ever please Hillary in bed, Vince Foster

Will somebody please take Bill aside and tell him to:

Stifle it already!

    From the linked article:

    "He said religious convictions of the people should be respected at all costs and no media should be allowed to play with the religious sentiments of people of any faith."

    Too bad for Gary Larson. All those books of Far Side cartoons that blaspheme cows will have to be pulled from the shelves, now. Disrespectful of Hindu religious sentiments, you know.

    Heck, why stop there? Ban the sale of beef while we're at it.
