Nancy Pelosi Bucks Tradition - No lazy recess vacation for new Congress!

Tradition in the House of Representatives is to open in early January and then quickly adjourn after swearing in new members. The House then would stay closed until after the State of the Union address. NOT ANYMORE! What better way to show America that the Democratic Party isn't going to spend a majority of the year in recess?

A Good Day

The Democrats win control of the House and Rumsfeld resigns. This is a good day for America.

When did the world loose control of this situation? Iran has now mocked the Jews and the Holocaust by actually promoting a contest for the best anti-Semitic cartoon that promotes the horrible idea that the Holocaust was a myth. This is an offense against the civilized nations of the world and the Jewish people. Supposedly this is in retaliation for a cartoon of Mohammad that was published by a Danish newspaper. What this contest has to do with that cartoon is unfathomable.

Here are the culprits:

Hamshahri, Iran’s best selling newspaper promoted the event.

Iran’s government allowed it to go on and sanctioned it.

Abdellah Derkaoui, a Moroccan artist won the event.

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called the holocaust a myth.

Masoud Shojai-Tabatabai is head of the Iranian cartoon house that promoted the event.

Among many countries where entries came in, France and Brazil were among them.

French and Brazilian cartoonists shared second prize.

It is now clear that the United States and the western, civilized nations of the world are failing to bring peace and sanity to the Middle East. Instead we have let hate and terrorism fester. This contest is another form of terrorism in my opinion not because it is a freedom of speech but because it promotes hate. The one thing that separates this from free speech or opinion or satire is the intent to promote anti-Semitism and hate.
