micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.

Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

My first, and perhaps only, report as The Shadow of the 21st century”
America’s second greatest tragedy, and the greatest that lacks its own widely known date, came to an end Sunday night with the airing of The Elizabeth Smart Story. I wasn’t expecting much from the program as it was aired by CBS, the evil network that recently tried to smear America’s Greatest President Ronald Reagan, the man who single handedly defeated communism, cut taxes and organized America’s broad coalition in Iraq without even once saying “goddamnit” or “son of a bitch” and who has been punished with the disease of Alzheimers, presumably by the evil liberals who just can’t stand his greatness and heroism. But I was pleasantly surprised.
The movie made it clear that strange religions are to be avoided. I recommend only those that have their show on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Oh, I’m sure there are some Christian churches, denominations or maybe even a sect or two without shows on TBN that are not lead by individuals who meet with the Anti-Christ and Satan every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. at the snack bar in the local Wal-Mart, but why would choose an inverted ark over basic cable if you are not in fact counseling Lucifer and the one who will bring a false peace to ditch their current playbook –one that has apparently been scouted, if not completely intercepted- in favor of an audible that will give them at least a fighting chance?
The movie also made clear the eternal truth that evil exists in this world and that we must fight it preemptively! As Andrew Sullivan has explained, caution and aggression now go hand in hand. Nothing except sacrafice is certain, but America will win!
Much of the Smart tragedy could have been avoided if we stopped having our police act like pacifists who can’t go into any home at any time to find missing girls. Oh I know the ACLU types will fume about how this violates the “rights” of the criminals for which the C in their name stands for but so much good will come from it. Just imagine:
[knock knock]Maybe that is a touch harsh now that I think about it. Here… this will be the deal: Every person will have 30… no 20 seconds to prove their innocence beyond a sliver of a shadow of any possible doubt that could be held by any decent member of society who is a part of the same nuclear family as the victim that they are innocent of every crime ever on the books before they are treated like the criminals we have yet to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they aren’t. That should shut up the criminal libbers!
Speaking of the evil, it is wonderful to hear that the temptress known as Vida Samadzai may face arrest and criminal punishment in her native Afghanistan for the wicked act of wearing a bikini? It wasn’t just any bikini. No, it was red, a move surely designed to please Satan as well as the many men and perverted women who will dream of fornicating with her. This just shows how wonderful America’s liberation of Iraq is. We have given them God’s gift of freedom but then also allowed them to impose decency on themselves. (Now if those Iraqis could just learn to worship the king…)
Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for judging women on their beauty and saying one is more beautiful than another. I just think they should be modestly dressed when I am determining if they will ever have a chance of amounting to anything in life.
