Blogger Questions in Case anyone

Blogger Questions in Case anyone cares to answer:

1.) How do I get my archives on the main page?

2.) What do I have to do to change it so I can post an unlimited number of column inches? As it is, if it is over a certain length, I format in blogger, cut and passte to word, the post, in reverse order, smaller chunks, so that it appears in the proper order (see the Saudi News Links).

3.) What is the best comments script to use?

4.) Has anyone used the spellchecker on the blogger website?

5.) I have seen people put headlines on their sites. Is there anyway to generate headline like that from other blogs?

If you have time and are inclined, please email me….

Answering Ken Layne’s House of Saud challenge, I have done some rudimentary searches. Not all of these are House of Saud specific, but the majority are. Enjoy.

Saudi Ambassador to London: ‘Bush Has Complexes…’ ‘The Entire World Fears a Future in the Shadow of Dubya’, which sports this gem:

“When George Bush Jr. came to the White House, after a long period of ambiguity and confusion, it was clear from the outset that his behavior stems from two enormous complexes. His first complex is [an urge to] manage matters completely differently than his predecessor, the popular and beloved Bill Clinton.

Excerpts from an interview with Hamas leader, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Our friends, the House of Saud:

Question: Was the fact that the King of Saudi Arabia received you during your tour of the Arab states a message to the United States?

Yassin: It was an expression of appreciation on the part of Saudi Arabia for [our] activities for the sake of Palestine and to tell the world — especially the U.S. and Israel — that Saudi Arabia supports the path of jihad. Saudi Arabia has demonstrated strength and courage because it declared its position loud and clear, telling the U.S. that it supports the path of struggle to restore the plundered land. In other words, the welcome I received was a clear message to the U.S. and a provocation against its policy…

I am getting tired of this, so here are some anti-Israeli and anti- U.S. cartoons here, here, here, here, and here. This way, illiterates can hate too.

And this gem. Don’t worry folks, Norm Mineta is on your side.

The cartoonist did have cartoons mocking Araft, but this type appeared to me at least to be most prevalent.

Two new links added, to Steve Den Beste’ s USS Clueless and to James Lileks. I do not know how I forgot to put those up, as they are two of the best.

Charles Johnson at Little Green

Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs has the new definition of terrorism, as defined by rogue nations and terrorists. Yep. You guessed it. Terrorism is what the Jews do to Palestinians. It is so frightenly predictable that I can not even laugh at their ignorance.

One reader felt the need to comment to Charles’s post.

Terror and violence are profitable business for USA. Americans own over 250 million guns in their homes, 2 million detainees in prisons in the land of the “Free”, one out of three women raped,high schoolshooting has become as popular as a football game,America is the largest exporter of arms,the Fed has toppled over 20 regimes worldwide.These are just few examples of America the leader of Democracy!

The same old litany of fuzzy logic, misapplication of statistics, misunderstanding of everything American: essentially, everything buffoons like Ted Rall and Noam Chomsky want the Arab Street to think about the United States. Congrats Noam and Ted, you have found Apt Pupils.

The most annoying part of the blather from Abdelmonem is the 2 million detainees blurb. We call them criminals, and the reason we have this many in jail is because we refuse to enforce absurd religious law. I guess if we did have the Sharia here, the number of prisoners (not detainees) would be smaller. When you are in the habit of routinely chopping off appendages (important ones, like heads) for high crimes like sexual preference, logic says that there would be fewer people in jail. Instead, they would be dead.

More bombing, less patience, and I am with Damian Penny. Saudi Arabia is the source of this problem.

One wonders if Mr. Addas would feel as free to post his banter in the Taliban controlled Afghanistan press, if it were directed against that regime. I think not.

How are we supposed to take these people seriously, other than to treat them as a serious threat?

I have some stuff to post, but I am off to the hospital tonight to watch my friend’s grandfather (just had open-heart surgery). I have a laptop, but no internet, so I shall see you tomorrow a.m.

White House Moves to Contain

White House Moves to Contain Political Damage From Enron Turmoil, or so says Jack Lynch, in this latest front page ‘newsitorial’ (Credit Jonah Goldberg for the term).

“President Bush directed the Treasury Department and other agencies today to study how to protect pension plans from debacles similar to the collapse of the Enron Corporation.

The move followed the Justice Department’s decision late Wednesday to form a special task force of prosecutors from across the country to conduct the inquiry into the giant energy company’s downfall. But it also appeared aimed in part at containing the political damage from the turmoil at Enron, which had strong ties to the Bush administration.”

Emphasis mine. Of course it ‘appeared’ to you that way. The same way Afghanistan ‘appeared’ to be a quagmire. The same way Bush ‘appears’ to be stupid. The same way it ‘appeared’ to you that Gore won the election.

I am too busy to comment more, but I look forward to more ‘balanced’ coverage from the NY Times on this issue.
