"I, for one, respect those who believe with all their heart and conscience that there are no circumstances under which abortion should be available."

"There is no contradiction between support for faith-based initiatives and upholding our constitutional principles."

"I am, you know, adamantly against illegal immigrants."

"I've always been a praying person."

Who is this right-wing idealogue? Hillary Clinton, speaking in Albany yesterday at a Roe v. Wade remembrance.

Guess she's running for president; given three years to do it, maybe she can nuance her conservative-value act a little better than ABB did. Lefties, of course, won't be surprised or upset; outright lies to the rubes are fine as long as they get the correct candidate in, because, of course, the chosen people *know* what the annonted candidate is *really* about.

Here's what's funny; people that ascribe far-fetched conspiracy theories to their political opponents and declaim detractors for naivety but ignore the possibility of their own unwitting collusion in similar projects sponsored by those in whom thay have placed trust. These are secular religionists and every bit as intolerant and blind as faith-based fanatics.

Boston update... US authorities forced a light plane to land in San Antonio (**). Plane was registered to Afzal Hameed of Dover, Delaware. Hameed allowed the plane's registration to expire in '02. Somehow they got five people into the four-seater 172; four red Chinese and a 'Mexican national' pilot. Plane flew in from Mexico. The four red Chinese are somehow linked to the Boston dealie (you know, the one the authorities have been poo-pooing as a hoax despite the big-time reaction by law enforcement).


Hmm. So, where's Hameed? How'd the illegal get the plane? Isn't it a tiny bit odd that five illegals, four of whom are citizens of an aggressive expansionist communist regime but could legally enter the US with a straight-forward visa are illegally flying into the US in a plane owned in the US by someone with an arab name but somehow flying from Mexico into the US in the possession of an illegal alien? Gosh, forgive me; that treads dangerously close to profiling, doesn't it? I'm sure there's an obvious, simple, innocent explanation. Occam's razor, and all that.

(**) Unusual proctographical correlation; Boston, Myassachusetts, and San Antonio, Texass. What does it mean?
