"Some, I know, have questioned the global appeal of liberty - though this time in history, four decades defined by the swiftest advance of freedom ever seen, is an odd time for doubt. Americans, of all people, should never be surprised by the power of our ideals. Eventually, the call of freedom comes to every mind and every soul. We do not accept the existence of permanent tyranny because we do not accept the possibility of permanent slavery. Liberty will come to those who love it."--GWB

Freedom to pollute

Freedom to not give a hoot...
That's what I love about freedom, freedomlovers, don't you?
I just read that "Studies Hint at Irreversible Rising Seas." The liberal freedomhating media at it again? I mean are we really supposed to believe these one or two token scientists (liberal ones, of course) whose "studies" they choose to report? That's not freedom, freedomlovers. We've worked so hard to get to this pinnacle of consumer society and freedom, where anyone can buy as much stuff as he/she can afford or charge (an irrefutable good, indeed) and throw away as he/she likes. These meddling liberal scientists--who needs them freedomlovers?
To be continued momentarily, a debate between two liberal journalists about the liberal media's conspiracy to suppress global warming stories. Stay tuned freedomlovers.
Time to don the cape and recycle the trash--I'm hungry.

March 21: At Least 51 Killed in Iraqi Violence

By STEVEN R. HURST, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 16 minutes ago

BAGHDAD, Iraq - At least 51 people were killed by insurgents and shadowy sectarian gangs, police reported — continuing the wave of violence that has left more than 1,000 Iraqis dead since the bombing last month of a Shiite Muslim shrine.

As the

Iraq war entered its fourth year, police found the bodies of at least 15 more people — including that of a 13-year-old girl — dumped in and near Baghdad. The discoveries marked the latest in a string of execution-style killings that have become an almost daily event as Sunni and Shiite extremists settle scores.

Sectarian killings have swept across Iraq since the Feb. 22 bombing of a Shiite Muslim shrine in Samarra. An Associated Press tally, including deaths reported Monday and Tuesday, put the toll at 1,044 since the golden dome atop the Askariya shrine was left in rubble by two bombers, who are believed to remain at large.

Hang in there...

Dearest Freedomlovers,
Freedom's work is never done, but battles do come to an end. I'm proud to report that the light of freedom is shining brighter and brighter in Iraq each day, and at such a low cost to freedomfighters from the U.S. and those enjoying freedom in Iraq, the Iraqi people. Only 2,300 American soldiers of freedom have fallen in the name of freedom thus far and only 16,600 have been wounded. Trifling numbers compared to the giant leap for humankind, especially the Iraqis. Only 33,400 of them have passed away with the sweet taste of freedom on their lips. I can think of no sweeter or more fitting way to exit this stage than that! Can you?

And this is not all we have to celebrate, freedomlovers. Recently, a kind web acquaintance, a Good Samaritan to be sure, directed me to a reputable site of information on the Iraq War, GOP.org, where I was awestruck at the many advances in Iraq that have been denied to my freedom-eager bearded pig eyes by that freedomhating liberal media. In the event that you, too, have been denied the pleasure to celebrate these accomplishments, I shall share a few with you. Witness the facts and decide for yourself:

"Before 2003, The Iraqi Media And Public Information Were Under Full Control And Censorship By The Former Regime While The Concept Of Free Press Was Nonexistent." (United States Agency International Development's Website, www.usaid.gov, Accessed 3/8/06)

"[Now] The Iraqi National Media Pool Consists Of More Than 25 National Media Bureaus." (United States Agency International Development's Website, www.usaid.gov, Accessed 3/8/06)
A Female Reporter From Dijila Radio: "This is a real development for media in Iraq … it enables us to get first hand information, which before was inaccessible."(United States Agency International Development's Website, www.usaid.gov, Accessed 3/8/06)

Freedomlovers, we can only salute these developments toward free speech and a free press, hopefully spearheaded by the exemplars of free democratic debate, our freedomloving friends at ClearChannel.

And that is not all:
"Separately, More Than 300 Tribal Chiefs, Politicians, Clerics, Security Officials And Other Community Leaders Met Last Week In Hawijah, About 35 Miles Southwest Of Kirkuk, And 'Declared War' On Al-Qaeda In Iraq." (John Ward Anderson, "Iraqi Tribes Strike Back At Insurgents," The Washington Post, 3/7/06)

So much to celebrate, freedomlovers, yet so little time. Freedom calls. Ye shall one day be rewarded.
Blessed are the freedomlovers!

Freedom Rider?

Dearest Freedomlovers,

Too long has it been since last we met here in our refuge from the forces of freedom-haters. Here we may reinvigorate ourselves as we head back out into the hailstorm of anti-freedom. We shall prevail, freedomlovers. Fear ye not.

Freedomlovers, recently a mysterious voice from the void spoke to me thus:

George Hanson: They're not scared of you. They're scared of what you represent to 'em.
Billy: Hey, man. All we represent to them, man, is somebody who needs a haircut.
George Hanson: Oh, no. What you represent to them is freedom.
Billy: What the hell is wrong with freedom? That's what it's all about.
George Hanson: Oh, yeah, that's right. That's what's it's all about, all right. But talkin' about it and bein' it, that's two different things. I mean, it's real hard to be free when you are bought and sold in the marketplace. Of course, don't ever tell anybody that they're not free, 'cause then they're gonna get real busy killin' and maimin' to prove to you that they are. Oh, yeah, they're gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it's gonna scare 'em.
Billy: Well, it don't make 'em runnin' scared.
George Hanson: No, it makes 'em dangerous.

Help me, freedomlovers: is this sphinx friend or troll? Who shall assist Captn. Freedom in this taxxing exegesis?
Blessed are the freedomlovers! Stay Free!
CF p.s. Happy New Year, FL's!
