Light Posting

The Ranting ManWork commitments will take virtually all of my time for the next few days. Posting will be light to non-existent for a while, depending on what Dymphna is able to do.

Here’s a thread where everyone can rant, rave, fulminate, share recipes, etc., to their hearts’ content.

Please abide by the Gates of Vienna comment guidelines while I’m gone. In case you’ve forgotten, comments here must be civil, temperate, on-topic, and show decorum.

Details of this policy are below the jump.
– – – – – – – –

1. Civil:   No name calling, gratuitous insults, personal slurs, denigration of someone’s intelligence, etc.
2. Temperate:   No exhortations to commit violence or foment insurrection, etc.
3. On-topic:   We generally don’t delete off-topic comments, but reserve the right to if they are excessively long. A brief OT mention of something you think we should know is perfectly fine.
4. Decorum:   We are a PG-13 blog, because the parents of homeschoolers allow their older children to come over here to further their education. Please make your point without resorting to foul language or explicit descriptions.

These guidelines have encouraged comment threads that are a delight to read, even when I disagree with some of what’s said. We are blessed with intelligent and well-informed commenters, and a distinct lack of trolls.

Fortunately for everybody, rule #3 doesn’t apply to this post, which has no topic. So feel free to argue about whatever you want.    🙂

  1. Transatlantic Conservative has a piece about trouble in Austria, where a FPÖ member spoke the truth about Muhammad.

    As usual, trouble followed. It’s making waves in media elsewhere, also in Denmark, and I’m giving FPÖ complete backing for what she said.

  2. An interesting article at American Thinker might provide some more insight into where some the recent ‘racism’ charges originate – as well the very dysfunctional, schizophrenic mindset of some of my overly-indoctrinated countrymen. Race a real bogey-man in some quarters, but not all. Expect more charges to fly as the efforts to end double standards and hypocrisy continue. The Race Industry has too many vested interests to ride off quietly into the sunset.

  3. Shortly after the Second world war Winston Churchill was in financial trouble, he hadn’t been working at his usual profession of writer and commentator. Normally Churchill could supplement his salary as M.P. with articles to the Newspapers but for several years he had been side tracked. From 1940 to 1945 he concentrate on the Job of being Prime Minister of Britain, I presume he thought it far more important than feathering his own nest. The result of this left him in rather crimped financial circumstances when he was voted out of office. He was contemplating selling his home at Chartwell in Kent, to get himself out of difficulty. I quote from Martin Gilbert’s biography of Churchill

    Churchill’s own earth was Chartwell. That autumn, fearing that his income was such that he could no longer afford to maintain it, he spoke gloomily to his friend Lord Camrose about having to put it on the market. When Camrose asked whether he would accept ₤50,000 , he replied with a chuckle that for such a sum,( the 1990 equivalent of a million pounds) “he would throw in the corpse as well”. Camrose at once suggested that a consortium of wealthy men buy it and for that amount, allow Churchill to live in it for the rest of his life for a nominal rent of ₤350 a year, and on his death give it too the National Trust as a permanent memorial. Churchill was delighted.

    Tony Blair like Churchill, an ex-prime minister, fresh out of office is to start a part time job with J.P. Morgan at a salary of ₤2,500,000 per annum it is estimated that he will earn nearly ₤40,000,000 pound over the next few years and it is proposed that he become puppet in chief of the New European Imperium when it comes into being in Lisbon next year.


  4. Miner, I have the “Best of Churchills speeches” on my bookshelf, still unread. It’s time I devote a couple of days to that tome.

    Churchill was an example of an *unselfish* politicians. Those few that are still around are usually being vilified by the majority. Few seem to mind. Even when Cherie Blair was found to take money from the Turks, no public outcry.

    MeThinks Blair is concentrationg on his bank account over worrying about what people will think of him. Am wondering how to get better politicians into office…

    Psychedellic California Strawberry Shortcake
    (My own invention stolen from nowhere.)

    Serves four

    Preparation time: 15 minutes


    1 Pint high test vanilla ice cream
    4 White chocolate Macadamia nut cookies
    1 Basket fresh blueberries (4.4 oz.)


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees (or use microwave)
    Wash and pick over bluberries
    Place cookies in hot oven
    Remove cookies once they are soft
    Place one cookie in each of four bowls
    Top each with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
    Garnish with blueberries

    Note: For best results, dry blueberries on paper towels

    Scarf while making animal noises.

    The reason that this is called Psychedellic California Strawberry Shortcake is because there are no strawberries or shortcake, yet this tastes even better. Use only the specified ingredients. No other substitutions work with the correct effect. If you only have regular chocolate chip cookies, use raspberries.

    Thanks for that info on TB. Considering what TB has done to this country, this is all I can post
    “!!!!$$££~@ !!*”~#!!!” in keeping with the Baron’s guidelines.

    As for Churchill – Those were the days when people had a sense of duty and honour. TB has none. “Carpetbaggers” is the only word that comes to mind for that couple.

    Happy New Year BTW.

    (The Holy Quran In Trial) TO,
    Geert Wilders—Petitioner

    According to the Islamic belief the Holy Quran is a Divine Book. It contains the words of God Almighty revealede at His last Prophet Muhammad. The verses of the Holy Quran were revealed on the happiness of particular events and its each and every vers has a connention of its own and on different and seprate background.
    It is stated that that as the Holy Quran is the words of God and the Laws of God for humen-beings , no earthly power can sit upon judgment on it and no Court of Law has jurisdiction to adjudicate it.The Holy Books like the Quran, Bible, Torah, Psalm and even Geeta and Granth Sahib ete……., or their translations cannot be the subject-matters of adjudication in any Court of law. All Holy Scriptures are immune from Judicial Secrutiny.

  10. As pointed out in Hallsbury 4th Ed. Vol 18 on “ Foreign Relations Law,” right of freedom of thought, conscience and religion includes freedom, alone or with or in community with others, and in public and private, to manifest religion or belief in worship, teaching, ptactice and observance. In my opinion, the action proposed will deprive a class of persons of their humen rights.
    There is an other aspect of the matter. The sacred book of the Holy Quran has been in existence for a number of years with it’s different interpretations and translations. Up to now no one has choosen to challenge the same.
    There is no question of forfeiture or banning of the said book on the grounds of disharmony or feelings of enmity or hatred or ill-will different religions and communities. This book is not prejudicial to the maintenance of hormony between different religions, nations and states because of the Holy Quran no bublic tranquility has been disturbed up to now and there is no reason apprehend any likehood of such disturbance in future.
    Similarly, in my opinion, it may be said by that petition, the petitioner insult or attempt to insult the Religion of Islam and the religious belief of the Muslims on the Holy Book Quran.
    So, I named, Ali MALLHI submit and publish this OPEN LETTER that this Hon’able Court of Amsterdam has no power trail the Holy Quran, nor jurisdiction to pronounce a Judgment on the Holy Quran, the Holy Scripture of the Muslims all over the world, each and every world of which, according to the Islamic belief, is unalterable. Court of mankind cannot sit in judgment on The Quran, The Bible, The Torah, The Pslam, The Geeta, The Granth Sahib, etc……..

  11. RE:Islam as the Victor of Western Value-Relativism

    The Western consensus of International law is a post WWII victor’s version of supposedly ‘world consensus’. In fact, it leaves out Muslim world and Islam’s various special insights, which can be accommodated without any reference of egoistic superiority complex. Even in the sphere of reciprocity, there are areas of special zones, that is respected even by Western consensus. So why treat Islam as outside of this globe?

  12. Muhammad, founder of Islam and author of Koran, was mentally sick psychopath, could not read and write. While in seizure, he uttered disjointed phrases, which his followers represented as Allah divine afflatus. This is the history of Islam that muslims and “honest and free” western media would not like you to know. These facts show that islam is not a religion, but a cult.

    “Great” arab inventions
    1. Ethnic Cleansing – invented centuries ago, implemented over 2000 years ago in Israel when they occupied Israel and disseminated Jews around the world; from 1948 through 1953 arab countries expelled a million Jews and stole their properties; in 1974, Turkish armed forces invaded Cyprus, captured 36 percent of its territory, partitioned the island, implemented a policy of “ethnic cleansing” and sent close to 200,000 Greek Cypriots southward as refugees who lost their property, desecrated churches and cemeteries, and in 1983 declared the northern Turkish Republic of Cyprus; in 1999, Kosovo Liberation Army stormed homes of the last 15 Jews in Kosovo’s capital, who had to clear out, with just the clothes on their backs; recently, Jews in Yemen were under attack and have been relocated to Britain.
    2. Genocide – invented by Turks and implemented in 1915–1917 in Armenia: over 1.5 mln. Armenians, including children, died.
    3. Holocaust – invented by Haj Amin al Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, in 1920s in Palestine (occupied territory of the State of Israel); implemented in Palestine in 1920s-30s; in 1941, Haj Amin al Husseini brought the Holocaust idea to Hitler and helped him to implement Holocaust in Europe 1941-45; he organized in Europe two islamofascist brigades that operated under SS control, had their own concentration camp, and killed tens of thousand of Europeans, including Jews.

    Islam is based on three fundamental principles:
    1. Stealing
    2. Killing, and
    3. Lying

    Koran says:
    “Slay them wherever you find them. Fight against them till idolatry is no more and God’s religion reigns supreme” (Sura 2:190),
    “Seek out your enemies relentlessly” (Sura 4:103),
    “Make war on them till idolatry shall cease and God’s religion shall reign supreme” (Sura 8:36),
    “When the sacred months are over slay the unbelievers wherever you find them. Arrest them, beseige them and lie in ambush everywhere for them” (Sura 9:5),
    “Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you” (Sura 9:121),
    “When you meet the unbelievers on the battlefield strike off their heads” (Sura 47:3),
    “Prophet, make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate” (Sura 66:7).

    Koran is Islamic Mein Kamf. Islam is fascist cult
