Responses to the London atrocity

As I expected, right wingers are simply reveling in the attack. Brit Hume said his first thought was that he could make money on the London stock market by buying stock futures, as related here. Other Fox commentators apparently were crowing about its being politically advantageous in terms of their getting to push their favored issues. The Wall Street Journal editorial today crows about how this shows how right we are to keep on torturing those poor innocents picked up off the street who are mixed up with the bad guys at Guantanamo. WSJ Deputy Editor Daniel Henninger treats it as an argument for confirming John Bolton (!!). I can't resist quoting this paragraph from his piece because it is so surreal:

"If the U.S. Senate wanted to send a signal of resolve and seriousness to whoever bombed London, Democrats would join with Republicans their first day back to dispatch proven anti-terror warrior John Bolton straight to the U.N. They won't. They'll keep playing political fiddles while London burns."

Exactly how is this supposed to help? I have an even better idea. Americans must show resolve by, each and every one of them, mailing me $1,000 checks, made out to cash, please. If you don't do this, dear reader, you are basically just encouraging the terrorists. You are showing that you are weak.

Maybe tomorrow the WSJ will say that, in light of the terror attack, we must immediately pass Bush's Social Security plan.

On the left, I get the sense that people, while genuinely outraged as all of us (if human) must be, are also anxous to show how outraged they are, because they know the Karl Rove types will be waiting to smear them if they are not visibly vociferous enough.

This is the sick climate we live in today. One side eager to exploit the terror attacks as an excuse to push all of their pet projects that have nothing to do with fighting terrorism. The other side desperate to show that they are angry enough.

Is it utterly out of the realm of possibility that, if al Qaeda doesn't cooperate by staging an attack in the U.S., Karl Rove and his minions will plan their own, Reichstag-fire style? I'd like to think they wouldn't. But if someone confidentially proposed this to Rove, I can't imagine any objection that he could possibly have to it, other than feasibility. This is, after all, a man who (I have read) spread what he knew were false rumors that an Alabama judge candidate was a child molester. Only, the upside of taking so large a risk as in the Reichstag fire scenario would have to be considerable.

Saw your blog about interest only mortgage calculator - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this link with you. We were paying far too much for family things like clothes for us and the kids, games consoles inc the new Wii and soon to be PS3, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones, landline calls, home and garden items, camping equipment and utilities/loans etc - you name it, we were spending too much on it.

Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday abroard each year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

Great blog on affiliate directory. I've stumbled on a superb money making website. Linkreferral is free to join and drives traffic to your website in an inivitive way (the more sites you visit, the more links you get back to your website.)

I've only been a member of Linkreferral for aproximately 2 weeks but I have already seen the volume of people coming to my site double - if not treble.

Linkreferral is not only driving visitors to my website but as a result my affiliate sales income has doubled also.

I really cannot push this website enough. It is free and it is fantastic!! www.linkreferral.com is a must for money making opportunities online.
