I'm Outraged I Tell Ya, Outraged!

Democrats are going nuts over allegations of sexually explicit emails, sent by the now resigned Republican Representative Mark Foley, to a 16 year old boy. Nancy Pelosi is demanding an investigation and the far-left is off its hinges on this one…

But this political gold mine heading into the November election has yet to change The Democrats ambivalence towards endangering the lives of CIA personnel, the US Military and the American people with political leaks of classified Intelligence propagated by newspapers like the New York Times.

Don’t worry! I’ll let you know when the liberal-outrage meter is fixed. Until then, damn you sexual emails… damn you!

Bush in a "State of Denial"

As a supporter of the initial invasion of Iraq and the overall strategy of Middle East democratization I have to say that I have come to feel disheartened by the current situation we find ourselves in. Those who frequent this website know how I feel about individuals in the administration who, in my opinion, have severely hurt our country. Namely, the Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld whose obvious failures and lack of modification in the Iraq war strategy has needlessly cost America lives. So needless to say, I was furious when I read the New York Times article detailing portions of the new Book out by Bob Woodward, “State of Denial”.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 — The White House ignored an urgent warning in September 2003 from a top Iraq adviser who said that thousands of additional American troops were desperately needed to quell the insurgency there, according to a new book by Bob Woodward… The Secretary of Defense is described as disengaged from the nuts-and-bolts of occupying and reconstructing Iraq — and so hostile toward Condoleezza Rice, then the national security adviser, that President Bush had to tell him to return her phone calls.

The American commander for the Middle East, Gen. John P. Abizaid, is reported to have told visitors to his headquarters in Qatar in the fall of 2005 that “Rumsfeld doesn’t have any credibility anymore” to make a public case for the American strategy for victory in Iraq.


Rumsfeld doesn’t have any credibility… at least not with me. And I’ve been yelling for more troops for over a year now. Every time I hear someone like Colin Powell say he urged for more troops in Iraq or read passages about how top aids to President Bush ignored the need for significant personnel increases, I just want to smash my head on my desk. Bob Woodward's much-anticipated new book paints a devastating picture of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld as an arrogant, indecisive bumbler who won't take responsibility for his mistakes - or even admit any.

If the Democrats had any brains and were not beholden to the fringe-left, they might have thought about pushing a campaign strategy of significant troop increases, not the completely foolish immediate withdrawal mantra. But what upsets me is that not one Republican leader that I know of, has come out and pushed for the need of overwhelming force in Iraq. Not one has called for Rumsfeld to be fired… Whatever happened to “Just Win Baby”. Instead, we have a bunch of stubborn leaders stuck believing in the hearts and minds strategy while soldiers are being killed by an insurgency that should have never grown to its current intensity. SEND MORE TROOPS or we will lose.
Update: White House Counters Book. Side Note: This book does not ‘basically say Bush is a liar’ as many left-wing websites have said and are likely to say.

Study: Liberals Have Mental Issues

I have come to realize that many liberals are mentally unstable and in many cases, deranged; but it’s always nice to have a university help point it out. A research study was conducted by a dream researcher at the John F. Kennedy University in California that found key differences in the sleep patterns of liberals and conservatives. Those differences have led Kelly Bulkeley to believe that liberals may be ‘hanging on the edge of well-being’.

"While some of my colleagues think my research reinforces the stereotype of repressed, uptight conservatives, it also shows that many liberals may be hanging on the edge of mental well-being," Mr. Bulkeley said. "There may be a lot of hidden distress and unpleasantness in the liberal mind."

Mr. Bulkeley discovered that liberals tend to have a higher number of bizarre, surreal dreams while Conservatives are having more mundane and realistic dreams. "Conservatives seem to have more of a focus on the here and now and the material world whereas liberals, in contrast, seem to have a much wider sphere of imaginative activity," he said. In my opinion, this could be why so many people on the left are stuck in a naive fairlyland of twisted logic. They transfer their bizarre dream-world into the real world and that’s how we get theories like Bush blew up the levees in New Orleans to kill all the black people and Bush planned 9/11 to go to war in Iraq. It’s all starting to make sense now…

But if you’re hesitant to believe my theory, maybe an accounting of a liberal nightmare will change your mind: The study includes some of the dreams recounted by liberals, such as the following nightmare: "I was at a presidential rally where George W. Bush was speaking. There was so much red, white and blue. Bush speaks: 'There are those who say that we are giving up our civil liberties. But I say, we should be proud to sacrifice our freedoms for America!' The crowd went wild, clapping, cheering and waving flags. I awoke in a cold sweat."

No wonder they are so angry, defensive, paranoid, and conspiracy-driven. Some people have nightmares about drowning or dying but the left has let their own Bush Derangement seep into their subconscious; or maybe it’s the other way around. Either way, it sure explains a lot.

Karzai Punks Clueless Reporter

In this video clip we have President Bush slamming the press about the recent NIE leak followed by President Karzai responding, in total amazement, to a bullshit question asked by the partisan AP reporter, Jennifer Loven. Watch the video of Both Bush and Karzai because it is something to behold. Just the look on their faces as they are forced to explain the obvious to a bunch of fucking clowns... –Video-

President Bush (excerpt) : Now, you know what's interesting about the NIE -- it was a intelligence report done last April. As I understand, the conclusions -- the evidence on the conclusions reached was stopped being gathered in February… And here we are, coming down the stretch in an election campaign, and it's on the front page of your newspapers. Isn't that interesting? Somebody has taken it upon themselves to leak classified information for political purposes.

I talked to John Negroponte today, the DNI. You know, I think it's a bad habit for our government to declassify every time there's a leak, because it means that it's going to be hard to get good product out of our analysts… But once again, there's a leak out of our government, coming right down the stretch in this campaign, -- in my judgment, i[t’]s why they leaked it.

PRESIDENT KARZAI (excerpt) : Ma'am… terrorism was hurting us way before Iraq or September 11th…These extremist forces were killing people in Afghanistan and around for years, closing schools, burning mosques, killing children, uprooting vineyards, with vine trees, grapes hanging on them, forcing populations to poverty and misery.

They came to America on September 11th, but they were attacking you before September 11th in other parts of the world. We are a witness in Afghanistan to what they are and how they can hurt. You are a witness in New York. Do you forget people jumping off the 80th floor or 70th floor when the planes hit them? Can you imagine what it will be for a man or a woman to jump off that high? Who did that? And where are they now? And how do we fight them, how do we get rid of them, other than going after them? Should we wait for them to come and kill us again…

NIE: Iraq is a Disaster

I did not need a National Intelligence Estimate to tell me that Iraq is a disaster and that it has worked as a recruiting tool for Muslim Extremists. But that is what parts of the leaked intelligence estimate have suggested. WASHINGTON (AP) - A declassified government intelligence report says the war in Iraq has become a "cause celebre" for Islamic extremists, breeding deep resentment of the U.S. that is likely to get worse before it gets better.

In the bleak report, released Tuesday on President Bush's orders, the nation's most veteran analysts conclude that despite serious damage to the leadership of al-Qaida, the threat from Islamic extremists has spread both in numbers and in geographic reach... Bush ordered a declassified version of the classified report released after several days of criticism sparked by portions that were leaked.

Naturally, the politically timed leak has been utilized by the Democratic Party; the hand wringing and attacks on the Bush administration have also begun to take shape and the opposition party's rancor seems to be reaching a fever pitch. However, as reported above, President Bush has just declassified portions of the NIE to counter the Democrats attempts to drive home their point that the war in Iraq has not made America any safer. Usually, the Democrats are too quick in their hopes of grasping their desperately needed opportunities to hammer the President on National Security matters, that they end up looking rather foolish when all of the facts come out. So we should probably wait to see the whole report... Update: Declassified NIE; and surprise, it's not what the Dems have made it out to be.

More to the point. I agree that the war in Iraq is almost a complete failure. I also agree that it has been used by terrorist organizations as a recruiting tool aimed at gaining strength in their fight against the United States. However, I accept the fact that this war has led or will lead to more attacks and I accept the perception that Iraq has rallied our enemies. The reason why I accept these realities is because in the real world, these realities have long been expected. Yes, when we no longer sit back and allow our citizens to be killed and our national interests to be threatened, it does bring out those searching for an excuse to wage war against the United States.

When we, as a nation, fight back against global terrorism and we begin having a military presence in the Middle East, it is reasonable to assume that it will create a “breeding ground” for those who inherently want to kill us. Although, it is wholly unreasonable and deeply na├»ve to assume or think that placation of groups like Al Qaeda can convince them to end their holy war. And it is unreasonable to assume that America is safe or would be safer by withdrawing from the battlefield. In the near future, we will be attacked with nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons whether or not we fruitlessly try to get extremists to like us, or we aggressively fight against them. Iraq, if you agree with it or not, is part of the long-term and necessary strategy in this complex battle against Islamic Extremists.

In closing: fighting terrorists does indeed anger them and their sympathizers

ABC Confirms "Torture" Tactics Work

ABC News Chief, Brian Ross has independently confirmed from multiple CIA sources, including some who oppose using harsh coercive interrogation, that a dozen terror-attack plots were uncovered by using techniques such as waterboarding and sleep deprivation.

One of the high ranking Al Qaeda operatives who provided intelligence to the CIA after this treatment was Khaled Sheik Muhammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks on the United States. The intelligence gathered from Muhammed prevented a plot against the Library Tower in Los Angeles. Another Al Qaeda big shot named Ramzi Binalsheibh gave up and began sobbing after only 30 seconds of waterboarding. -- I guess they’re not so tough -The Interview is a Must See-

Of Course, this does fly in the face of those who falsely argue that ‘torture’ or harsh treatment never yields any vital intelligence from captured terrorists. As AllahPundit put it: Anti-”torture” absolutists adamantly deny that harsh tactics produce reliable information. It’s their way of avoiding the moral dilemma presented by a ticking time-bomb scenario. But they’ll have to face it now, because in four short minutes Brian Ross utterly explodes that particular article of quasi-religious faith as fantasy. Not only did they break Khaled Sheikh Mohammed; not only was the information he gave them valuable; not only did it save lives; but Ross’s sources include people within the CIA who are opposed to the practices.

Now that’s not to say that these types of techniques always work because sometimes they don’t. But the fact remains, according to ABC’s investigative team, American lives have been saved by using what some claim is torture and what I claim is perfectly acceptable and reasonable. When it comes down to it, it’s a matter of principle. When lives are at stake in a complex and brutal war on terror we have to be willing to get information by almost any means necessary in order to ensure our safety.

Bush Approval Jumps to 44%

Huge political news has hit the country today. Not only has President Bush’s approval numbers risen to 44% but likely American voters are now evenly split among Democratic and Republican candidates in the upcoming congressional elections. And despite the disaster we see in Iraq, brought about by the failed strategy of Donald Rumsfeld, the American people are still shying away from the possibility of Democrats controlling the situation. When asked which party in Congress would be better at handling the situation in Iraq, only 44% of those polled thought Democrats would do a better job, with 42% saying that Republicans would be a better choice. -USA Today Poll-

So what’s going on here? Why, all of a sudden, have the President’s approval numbers raised and how is it that the Democrats have failed to capitalize on the perceived failures of the incumbent party? Some pundits are claiming that Mr. Bush’s recent speeches on terror and the fifth anniversary of 9/11 have reminded voters of the stakes we are now facing. That might be true, it might not be true.

**From my point of view the reasons are obvious. Average non-partisan Americans are frustrated with the current administration but their frustration is outweighed by their understanding of where the Democratic Party is heading; and what they currently stand for. People in-between the extremes understand that, although they might disagree with the President on certain issues, the main thrust of the President’s policies on terror are correct. Even moderates Democrats,
as reported before, believe we should not honor international treaties if it meant releasing Gitmo inmates, and most Americans agree with tracking suspected terrorists via the NSA.

The problems the Democrats are facing is the simple fact that they are beholden to the far-left. They are admittedly owned by MoveOn.org and are being forced by the tin-foil nutroots to adhere to their extremist ideology. Democratic leaders believe attacking George Bush will bring them credibility; which it will from the liberal base. But what they don’t realize is that their terrorist-sympathizing, undermining of the war, Bush-bashing and vile rhetoric is only causing those who aren’t satisfied with the GOP to say “Yeah, I’m not real happy about the situation but there is no way in Hell I’m giving Democrats the power.” That is what’s happening: People are more than happy to voice their disagreement with Republicans before elections but when it comes down to November and making a real decision, the democrats are virtually forcing independent voters to vote Republican.

NY Times Trains for Treason

The New York Times is now training its reporters on how to properly commit treason against the United States of America. The New York Observer has reported that the Times is currently telling their employees how to avoid investigation from the US government when they reveal classified material to the public and our enemies.

To this end, as the New York Observer
reports, the Times is now giving lessons to their reporters on how they can best "dispos[e] of story drafts and [cut] back on telephone and e-mail contact with sources--or use disposable cell phones for important calls." In addition, New York Times reporter David Barstow has recommended other subterfuges such as "altering Times expense-sheet forms so that a reporter does not have to list the names of sources who have been taken out for lunch or dinner." Barstow adds that even company e-mail should conveniently disappear in a short time in order to hinder any investigation of who might be leaking secrets to the Times staff. "There has been a conversation about changing our e-mail system so that e-mail is automatically deleted after 30 days unless you mark the e-mail for preservation," says Barstow. -Quote-

Unbelievable! So instead of stopping their treacherous reporting and endangering the lives of the American people, the US military, and CIA operatives, the Times just finds ways to avoid being investigated and ways to protect their sources. I guess from their point of view, we can’t blame them. Because the next time they embolden our enemies or give away vital intelligence they have to be sure there is no evidence left behind. And we have come to realize that hurting the country, skewing the news, and undermining the war on terror is a way of life for them; a way of life that they seem to now want to protect.

Gas Prices and the Upcoming Conspiracy

According to the Oil Price Information Service, gasoline is likely to fall to $2.00 per gallon by Thanksgiving. Prices at the pump are already down to a national average of $2.41, making it a good 50 cent drop from last month.

So naturally Democrats will give credit to President Bush for lowering the price of gasoline since they blamed him for the increase, right…? Of course that won’t happen but what we will see in the coming weeks is a huge effort by the far-left to convince its minions that the sudden fall in price has nothing to do with less demand, the end of summer and the easing of tensions in the Mid East, but has only to do with a cynical political campaign waged by the GOP, with the help of the oil giants, to better their chances at reelection in November.

This upcoming attempt will likely work because frankly the liberal base of the Democratic Party truly believes anything they are told to believe. And they do it with the type of conviction that is usually only seen in the worst types of delusional mental patients.

However, the argument of lower gas prices helping the GOP this mid-term election is correct. The fact that it has nothing to do with a nonsensical conspiratorial plot doesn’t change the likely affect this will have on the voting public. And this turn of events, especially since gas prices were among the top-three worries for Americans but are now the 5th concern, creates a sense of apprehension among the Democratic leaders. All of a sudden Republicans are gaining ground and all of a sudden President Bush’s job approval rating jumped to 42% in an NBC poll. Will the Dems fall flat on their face again or will they be able to avoid shooting themselves in the foot? We’ll see

Hezbollah Guilty of War Crimes; No Shit!

Amnesty International has taken time out from attacking the United States and Israel to finally point out that the terrorist-group Hezbollah has committed war crimes. LONDON (Reuters) - Lebanese guerrilla group Hizbollah committed war crimes in its conflict with Israel by targeting civilians with rockets packed with metal ball bearings, rights group Amnesty International said on Thursday.

Yes sir, Amnesty’s secretary-general came to the difficult conclusion that purposely targeting innocent civilians to murder “makes it all too clear” they violated the laws of war.

"The scale of Hizbollah's attacks on Israeli cities, towns and villages, the indiscriminate nature of the weapons used and statements from the leadership confirming their intent to target civilians make it all too clear that Hizbollah violated the laws of war," Amnesty's Secretary-General Irene Khan said.

Ah, but she can’t just leave it at that now can she. It took so much effort to bring herself to condemn her beloved freedom fighters that she could not help but to needlessly bring Israel into the picture.

"The fact that Israel has also committed serious violations in no way justifies violations by Hizbollah," she said in a statement. Wow. You mean using human shields, launching attacks from condensed civilian neighborhoods (the reason why so many Lebanese civilians died) and indiscriminately attacking Israeli towns is not justified by Israel defending itself from the initiating aggression. Thanks for pointing out that terrorists are not fond of life or the rule of law… I didn’t know. (Notice the inherent bias in her statement. the insinuation that Israel started this and that it's their fault Hezbollah uses human shields)

And then there is the timing of this report. During the entire conflict, Israel was being attacked by Amnesty and other so called human rights groups but it took a month after the war was over for them to report the obvious about Hezbollah. In fact, it took only days for A.I. to release a condemnatory statement directed at the Israelis.

9/11: Divine Interlude

Divine Interlude

When your friends have just died and the unimaginable has pierced your eyes you can't help but cry.

When the entire nation is shocked and dismayed what is left to do but pray.

Those who ran into the inevitable death brought about by the purest of evil have witnessed the truth.

They have witnessed the struggle between evil and you.

Rockefeller: Bush Duped Me into War

Senator Jay Rockefeller, the lead Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, has taken responsibility for his Iraq-war vote like only a Democrat can: He claimed Bush tricked him into doing it!

"The absolute cynical manipulation, deliberately cynical manipulation, to shape American public opinion and 69 percent of the people, at that time, it worked, they said 'we want to go to war'... Including me. The difference is after I began to learn about some of that intelligence I went down to the Senate floor and I said 'my vote was wrong.'"

Yes, we’ve heard it time and time again. The evil George Bush and his mind bullets have voodooed their way into the minds of all the Democrats. And it’s not just during Bush’s term in the White House; he even used his mind-magic in the 1990’s. You know in the late 90’s when people like John Kerry were advocating the use of ground troops to overthrow Saddam and when Democrats like Bill Clinton, Joe Lieberman, Madeline Albright were all making the case against Iraq’s WMD program. Yup, even when Georgie boy was in Texas, he was tricking Democrats into believing Saddam Hussein was a threat… Damn! He’s better than Chris Angel.

Aside from blaming his war-vote on Bush, he also went on to say, according to
WCBS-TV, that he misses the former Iraqi dictator . "Rockefeller went a step further. He says the world would be better off today if the United States had never invaded Iraq — even if it means Saddam Hussein would still be running Iraq."

Oh, and just for the record, Mr. Rockefeller said this prior to invading Iraq: "There was unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years. We also should remember that we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."

No Moore Kill Bush or Free Speech

Michael Moore unveils his new Film!!!!

WHO CARES

Peace nut Cindy Sheehan Hates and wants to kill Bush!!!!

WHO CARES

Democrats trying to Stem Free Speech!!!!

Ahh, WHAT’S NEW

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I have been very busy with other things so I haven’t been able to keep on top of my blog. Anyway, I was reading some of the latest happenings on the net and came across the three stories posted above. What a waste of freakin’ time, huh?

Listen, you media freaks… I don’t care about Cindy Sheehan; enough about her and her bullshit. She’s had her fifteen minutes of fame which was happily fabricated into a year by you people in the news. Why don’t you give nonstop coverage to family members of dead soldiers who still support their sons or daughters and still support their country!!!

And then there’s the blob redux, Michael Moore. There is another big “Who Gives a Shit” right there. Why the fuck do we have to hear what that jackass is up to. You can’t get any more discredited than this asshole!

Last but not least, we have a bunch of whiny Democrats crying about a 9/11 docudrama. Well cry me a fucking river you pansy pieces of shit. That’s all they do. They whine about something or other. Hell, they praised Michael Moore’s obvious propaganda piece but now they are demanding ABC not show their miniseries because one scene in one part of the film is inaccurate in its accounting of a pre 9/11 event.

So in closing… Enough with this shit! No more Cindy, no more Moore and everyone knows Democrats are a bunch of whiny bitches. Thank you and have a nice weekend

I See, Said the Blind Man

--- In 2002, officials disrupted a plot by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, to crash hijacked airplanes into targets on the U.S. West Coast.
--- In mid-2004, officials discovered a plan to bomb urban targets in the United Kingdom.
--- After a plan to blow up tall buildings in the U.S. was disrupted, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed said he directed his operatives to attack the buildings because they were too tall for victims to jump out of, ensuring they would die by smoke inhalation.
--- In his speech, Bush said Mohammed and a terrorist named Yazid provided vital information on al-Qaida's efforts to obtain biological weapons that allowed officials to capture two other terrorists involved in producing anthrax for al-Qaida.
--- Terrorists involved in a well-advanced plot to attack targets in Karachi, Pakistan, were detained in the spring of 2003.
--- A plan to use hijacked commercial airplanes to attack London's Heathrow Airport was disrupted in 2003.
--- A plot to attack ships in the Persian Gulf was foiled in late 2002 and early 2003.
--- One of the plotters involved in the plan to attack ships in the Gulf was also part of a foiled plot to attack ships in the Strait of Hormuz.
--- In early 2004, a captured al-Qaida facilitator revealed a plan to send suicide truck bombers into Camp Lemonier, a Marine Corps base in the African nation of Djibouti. This information caused security at the base to be enhanced. -

We haven’t been attacked in 5 years. Our allies are deeply involved in international efforts to combat global terrorism. Thousands of terrorists are imprisoned thanks in large part to the US, our foreign policy and our allies underlying and unspoken help; not to mention US forces. Al Qaeda leadership is on the run, if not dead, and those who are fighting in Iraq are being killed by the hundreds. We are no longer thought of as weak in our enemies’ minds. Saddam Hussein, one of the world’s worst dictators in history, is in prison awaiting execution. Our Intel services are stopping untold numbers of attacks and are finally being funded and given clearance to fight the “secret” wars necessary for our national security. After Clinton failed on Iran, allowed North Korea to build nuclear weapons, did nothing relevant in the Middle East and allowed Al Qaeda to attack America over and over while building in strength… I have to say, a lot has been done. Now let’s hurry up in Iraq and move on with fighting this unappeasable reality.

9/11 Documentary on ABC

Liberals Are Outraged Over the Mentioning of Clinton Failures
ABC is scheduled to run an epic miniseries on the events leading up to 9/11 on September 10th and the 11th. It is being touted as one of the best and most accurate series covering the failures prior to 9/11 ever made; using facts and information gathered in the 9/11 Commission Report as well as information gathered from ABC News. It will be a haunting reminder of how the appeasement of terrorism during the Clinton Administration led up to that cataclysmic event and how his lack of action provided our enemies the time and the logistical means they needed to grow in strength.

Given that this documentary is one based on actually events and actual facts and not a film designed to attack the current President, it is already being denounced by fringe-left websites. I mean these sites have gone apeshit over this new film because it points out the obvious failures of the Clinton Administration. They have already begun to smear ABC, the filmmaker, and have brought in anti-Bush operatives like Richard Clarke to try his best to minimize the damage this will do to the Democrats hopes for the mid-terms and 2008.

People are already calling the film a "mockumentary" and labeling it a fake. Of course their claims are ridiculous at best, given they haven’t seen the film and that their opinions are shaped by BDS. It’s the syndrome that leads people to view Michael Moore’s obvious propaganda piece, which is disputed point by point, as a work of truth while viewing the ABC documentary that points out the mistakes of the previous administration as a travesty. For them, the 8 years under Clinton when we were attacked half a dozen times by Al Qaeda and did nothing about it, is far less meaningful than a president who was in office for only months. Anyway, I had a good laugh at the left’s desperate attempts to convince its tin-foil liberal base that ABC’s new miniseries is all a lie.

So be sure to set your reminders to ABC on the 10th and the 11th to watch the show. And don’t forget to laugh at liberals.


Update: One scene has legitimately come into question. The scene has to do with Clinton refusing to give the order to kill Osama Bin Laden. However, that does not change the fact that Clinton refused a cruise missile strike on Bin Laden and refused the Sudanese offer of Intel and Osama himself. So all of the nay saying from the left and all of their whining about this film being fake is not based on the film itself, just one small portion of the film that is not entirely accurate but which doesn’t go into the left-out facts of other key missteps of the administration. They are just mad it [rightfully] doesn’t attack Bush.

Croc-Hunter Killed by Stingray

No one could have imagined that the off-the-wall and entertaining Steve Irwin would be killed by something as innocent as a stingray but that is what’s being reported. It’s tragic enough as it is but to think that a person who wrestles crocodiles and handles deadly snakes would be killed by something that is usually harmless, makes it even worse.

Is it really a surprise though? People as lovable, caring, enthusiastic and unique as Steve Irwin are never around long enough.

I wish his family well. I think the world is a far worse place knowing that someone like Steve is no longer with us. There will never be anyone like him nor should there be.

Crikey!!
