Quote Of The Week

This week's quote comes from the commander of the Taliban in Pakistan. Baitullah Mehsud has threatened to carry out an attack on Washington DC. It's this quote that I found appealing though. This is in response to the US $5 million bounty on his head.

"I wish to die and embrace martyrdom."

I would like to wish Mr. Mehsud success in his pursuit of death. In fact, I think we should try to help him.

I wonder what gift Obama has in mind for Baitullah Mehsud... Certainly, he must be somehow misunderstood. Just what do you give a terrorist? Obama does have pals he could ask.

I'd love to split the $5 million with you, helping you help hiim try.

I think Obama will bow him to death.

There’s a lot to feel good about when it comes to the election of Barack Obama.

I ask you to support Obama. And if you can’t find it in your heart or head to give support, at least give him a chance. Sit back for a couple years, so don't be a Cynical Sally, and observe what Obama does. If you happen to agree with him, don’t be beyond admitting you were wrong.

I’m clearly an Obama supporter, and I have been since the beginning of the election.

Chuck said...

DaBlade, we need to find out why he is the way he is. What did we do to him to make him hate us so?

Wordsmith, it's not about the money, but since it's there :-)

Kevin, bump him in the head, brain bleed

Gray Headed, as to supporting Obama, don't hold your breathe. I defend my right to not support him as strongly as I defend your right to do so.

There's nothing like good old fashioned altruism.

Welcome to Fantasy Island.

He's been in office over two months and has only done one thing right. That means everything else has been wrong. I don't see him closing that gap anytime soon.

But like Chuck says, I support your right to be wrong and would even fight to the death to protect it. Would you do the same, for me?

Chuck said...

La Sunsett, I have always said everyone has the right to be wrong.

"Sit back for a couple years, so don't be a Cynical Sally, and observe what Obama does."

Does that mean I am suppose to sit back and not exercise my right to free speech if I don't agree with something he does? Sit back and be quiet? Don't call wrong -wrong? Don't fight against policies and actions that are destroying the country?

"If you happen to agree with him, don’t be beyond admitting you were wrong."

If I see him do something that is right and good for our country and doesn't trash our rights and destroy the Constitution of the United States, I would be more than happy to applaud the man. So far...I am still waiting...

Open letter to Baitullah Mehsud: Dear sir, I would like to volunteer my services to ensure that you become a martyr. My offer is as follows:

1. I will kill you in a manner acceptable to you, as long as you and only you end up dead.
2. You can become a martyr, if Allah will have you.
2. You do not have to share the virgins with me.
4. I do not have to share the reward with you, or your beneficiaries.
5. I reserve the right to piss on your grave!

Chuck said...

Leslie, Gray hHeaded Brother is not worth the time. I saw the same comment at aother post. He spams conservative blogs. Plus, your forgetting only libs have freedom of speech since the "change"

AA, nice of you to try to help out.

These terrorists forget that martyrs don't take others out with themselves. I hope his virgins are a group of old-school nuns who smack him for eternity.

Chuck said...

Loren, lol. One comedian (forget his name) says that he has never heard for certain that the virgins are women. That would be an unpleasant surprise :-)
