So Many Choices, So Little Choice

That Gaggle of Shrinks known as Shrinkwrapped, NeoNeoCon, Dr. Sanity and Sigmund, Carl and Alfred all posted on the same topic. Like a harmonic convergence or sumpthin’. Rather than reading your eyeballs out, listen to the latest podcast. They promise…

If you want to live longer, look younger, have better hair, a killer body, smart children and decent in-laws, the Sanity Squad Archives are the magic pills you need.

I can’t wait to see what I look like in the morning!

It all boils down to choice. You can choose to be afraid, or not. Choose to believe the lying media, or not. Choose to work for a living or collect your “entitlement”. Choose to believe in a loving God or a killing god. Choose to be a good neighbor, good parent, good spouse, good child, good sibling, good friend, good employee, good boss…it’s all so much more than what car to drive or what shoes to wear to work. Sushi or BBQ for lunch? I don’t know, you decide.

I remember a Star Trek-Next Generation episode about Worf being caught in some kind of time rift. There was a scene where dozens, hundreds, thousands of Enterprises appeared, each with a Worf (and supporting cast) in his own reality, and each based on a choice he’d made in his past. Like a branch in code, you go one way or the other. And there’s no going back.

In an earlier post about the incessant bleating of the Left, I quoted Siggy
and his thoughts about behavior and choices…

They [the Arab world] want to change reality by denying reality. There is a blatant attempt to reshape reality by changing our perception of reality, not by changing behavior.

Did Worf want to change his reality? You bet your bony-forehead he did. Somehow, thanks to Data and some cool special effects, he was back. But with the disturbing memory that would stay with him the rest of his life – of a beleaguered Riker screaming into the viewscreen “Don’t Leave Us Here” as the Borg burst onto the bridge.

This new blogger got an early dose of the murky waters he’s entered. Teflon Don was snarked by none other than James Wolcott of VF; sniffing at his “..pretentious prose style…”. I guess Mr. Wolcott is jealous that the young milblogger was picked up so quickly by PajamasMedia, and he wasn’t. Wah Wah Wah. I say if the boy enjoys writing (something he CHOOSES to do, by the way), then let him write. No telling what he’d say about my writing style. Like I’d really care. But then the quick and nimble Don lobbed one right back, seeing right through him…

That’s ok, James- keep on keeping us honest over here. Sip your latte as you wade knee-deep through your self-proclaimed Iraqi mire in the comfort of your New York office.

The Saudi’s appear to be choosing to ban the letter ‘X’ because it sparks their CrossPhobia. (h/t Fausta).

The new development came with the issuing of another mind-bending fatwa, or religious edict, by the infamous Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice — the group of senior Islamic clergy that reigns supreme on all legal, civil, and governance matters in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The commission’s damning of the letter “X” came in response to a Ministry of Trade query about whether it should grant trademark protection to a Saudi businessman for a new service carrying the English name “Explorer.”

[…] Well, never mind that none of the so-called scholars manning the upper ranks of the religious outfit can speak or read a word of English. But their experts who examined the English word “explorer” were struck by how suspicious that “X” appeared. In a kingdom where Friday preachers routinely refer to Christians as pigs and infidel crusaders, even a twisted cross ranks as an abomination.

This is the same bunch that thinks the earth is flat…

Among the commission’s deeds is the famed 1974 fatwa — issued by its blind leader at the time, Sheik Abdul Aziz Ben Baz — which declared that the Earth was flat and immobile. In a book issued by the Islamic University of Medina, the sheik argued: “If the earth is rotating, as they claim, the countries, the mountains, the trees, the rivers, and the oceans will have no bottom.”

Huh?…and that the earth’s magnetic field is zero in Mecca.

Stellar intelects, those guys. They CHOOSE to be deluded.

While we’re on the subject of “choices” forced on the followers of Islam, RightGirl links to a video of an Imam telling his mosque exactly how to choose when dealing with women.

Remember that when you watch the video here. These are daughters, sisters, mothers. Meat. Property. Chattel. Whores. Punching bags.

Enough with the PC bleating about respecting other cultures. Beating your wife with a stick does not earn you respect. And the Koran is not a woman’s user manual.

I heard this on the way in this morning. These two guys in Afghanistan made good choices.

Two civilians thwarted an attempted terrorist attack Tuesday when a vehicle loaded with explosives attempted to crash through the front gate of a U.S. base in the Afghan capital, according to the U.S. military.

The two men, an interpreter and a security guard, dragged the apparent suicide bomber from the vehicle before he could detonate explosives, said Col. Tom Collins, the chief spokesman for U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

“I think it’s a pretty amazing and heroic event,” Collins said.

I’m curious, did somebody clone Jack Bauer? Such a selfless act…saving the very same people that our media would lead us to believe are sooo reviled by the entire anti-American planet.

And if this is really true, then I will choose to fly NorthWest more often.

Now see, how easy that is?
