I have been itching and moaning for years that there are consequences to the things we do and don't do in life ... or there should be. That axiom applies to countries, organizations, states, counties and individuals (yes, even the president of the United States).
Several years ago, a popular new work was racing through cyberspace called "The Bill of No Rights." Lewis W. Napper -- in a fit of uncommon reason and insight -- authored the piece.
"We, the sensible of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common-sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt-ridden delusional, and other liberal, commie, pinko bedwetters."
Before listing what should be the obvious, Napper stressed, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that a whole lot of people were confused by the 'Bill of Rights' and are so dim that they require a "Bill of No Rights."
Recently, the self proclaimed patron saint of gun control, Sarah Brady was outed for her overt hypocrisy. Saint Sarah reportedly may have violated Delaware law by failing to acknowledge she was a "straw" gun buyer. Defenders say, "Not even!" Critics say, "Uh huh!"
I am pleased that Sarah bought a rifle for her son, and not surprised she didn't understand the complexities of laws she helped impose on the rest of us. I am also pleased her son apparently survived the probable demonization and indoctrination of his rabidly anti-gun mom. However, come on ... Sarah Brady in a gun store? That is a bit like a safe sex rally at a Kennedy compound ... hosted by Bill Clinton.
The soon to be defunked INS again soiled the sheets by violating their own rules (and common sense) to grant shore leave to four Pakistani sailors who just happened to be on a terrorist watch list. It was a major "whoops" and the four Pakistanis are now missing -- while coincidentally our embassy in Pakistan is evacuating dependents and non-essential employees. The only upside to this story is soon the INS may be missing too.
Yasser Arafat is (as I have previously often observed) a liar, a murderer, a terrorist, an empty suit and a singularly unattractive waste of skin. Now we learn a suicide bomber was directly under Arafat's control. Hasn't anyone in the administration ever heard the story of "The Scorpion and the Frog"?
In Sacramento, Calif., a new home-schooler has been bullied and threatened by bureaucrats. The San Juan Unified School District claims the mom is contributing to the delinquency of her son by pulling him out of a school environment the mom feels is negatively impacting her child. What they really object to is the loss of one more daily student who rings the federal funds cash register.
I recently interviewed Kenneth Timmerman, author of "Shakedown" (look for the Q&A in Sunday's WND). Jesse Jackson is a lot like Arafat and like Arafat has -- until just recently -- enjoyed the complicity of the mainstream media and government enablers.
The "New French" (my term for the Saudis) just got a wake up call from Vice President Dick Cheney. Big Dick and Prince Abdullah had an uncommonly and brutally frank conversation that apparently was neither polite nor particularly friendly. Reportedly, Cheney's tough talk stunned the dysfunctional royal family of Saud. Come on Dick ... you mean that "those who are not with us are against us" talk was for real? Suddenly the "New French" were made to realize this vice president actually meant his warning very literally.
Remember, I encouraged you to read Napper's "Bill of No Rights"? For those of you who did not, "ARTICLE VI" states, "You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and kill you." Which, by the way, is really what President Bush said Sept. 11 of last year.

finally punches him in the nose, the "New French," the "Old French," Iraq,
Iran, North Korea, China, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, the European Union and
the diminutive and petty Sen. Daschle are facing the epiphany that words
do have meaning.
