Sad Day (for her fans)

Well, beginning today is a sad and depressing day for Tasha and Dishka fans.  As of May 1st the girls will be going to SE Asia for two months.  Those of us who have had the pleasure of chatting and messaging the girls knew about this for about 3-4 weeks.  Yet it does not make the pain any less sharp. Anyway, this fan just wants to wish them the very best experience in SE Asia.  I hope they have the time of their lives and that they have a drink in dedication to us, their fans who get hours of enjoyment from their clips on youtube and on heep!

Tasha did leave us with two parting gifts on Heep and one on youtube.  Unfortunately, I cannot embed clips here from Heep.  However here is Tasha's latest clip!

Enjoy!

Tasha and Dishka Clips

Ok here are just a couple of my favorite clips from Tasha and Dishka. 



This one, I believe is one of the first clips I ever saw from them.  Omri at Mere Rhetoric posted it.



This of course is the absolutely famous HEY Clip that has over 14 million views!

General topics

This past week has been quite eventful.  Between the Don Imus issue, the shooting at V-Tech, The Supreme Court narrowly upholding the Partial Birth Abortion Plan its been almost difficult to keep up.  So, I just have a few thoughts I want to put out there:

First - Don Imus.  I never thought this as a huge issue.  Its not like he hasn't pulled this type of stunt before.  Why now is he getting the ax?  Though I do find it somewhat amusing that the Liberals are eating their own, in this situation.  I mean one of Imus's most observed guest was Senator John Kerry - Democrat.  Now, with the input of Snoop Dogg into this issue, I have come up with the best headline for this story:  DON IMUS FIRED--SNOOP DOGG STILL HAS A CONTRACT.  This just completely highlights to the hypocracy of Al Sharpton et al.

Second - VA-Tech.  My heart goes out to everyone who has been touched by this shooting - NOT to the murder, but I do feel bad for his family.  Yes, I call him a murder.  He, in cold blood, murdered 32 innocent individuals.  Now, it has come out that he sent NBC a "manifesto"  I don't really hold it against NBC for broadcasting it.  Hell, if it bleeds it leads principle is still very much alive and well in the MSM.  Part of me just wants the story to stop and allow everyone affected a chance for reflection and to digest all of the emotional rollercoaster they have been forced to experience since the beginning of this week.  May G-d grant them peace.

Finally, the partial birth abortion ban was upheld by the US Supreme Court.  All I can say, is good (for the most part).  The only thing I would have liked would be an exemption in case the mother's life was in jeopardy.   I honestly, dont have a problem with abortion, but if you carry a child to the 6th, 7th and 8th month, that child will likely survive on its own.  At that point, I believe to kill that viable life form is committing murder.  Have the baby, give it up for adoption to a couple who cannot have children and you will be doing that child a great service.  Don't kill it.  Anyway, just my thought on the matter. 

Also, this week - well April 17th, was tax day.  This really sucked.  This was the first time in my life I ever had to pay money TO the government.  I usually get some of MY money back.  Yes, I don't look at it as a refund, since they took my money to begin with, made interest on it and then gave it back.  I wish we had Boortz's Fair tax.  But, it wont happen.  This year I had to give the government $1641.00 extra on top of the taxes I had already given them.  All I can hope for is that next year, I get more of my money back.

Possible Candidate Fred Thompson has Lymphoma

Hot Air and MereRhetoric has report that Fred Thompson has Lymphoma.  Fred Thompson is the famous actor who might be running for President in the 2008 race.  I do agree with Allah's analysis that you do not simply disclose this for no reason.  There is something behind it.  It could be a test ballon to see how his staff responds to this and how the public feels about his illness.  But, lets face facts, we have had a President who had Polio (FDR).  Presidents under a haze of political corruption that obviously wore them down and thus were probably not able to give 100% to the job.  Even today's republican candidates had had various medical issues that they had to deal with.  In the long run, I dont think its going to matter.  If Fred is going to be the candidate he will be because those of us who vote for him believe he will be the best standard bearer for the party. 

In the end, my vote is going to be based on who is going to wage the war against Islamofascism the most viciously and with the most determination and which candidate will best support Israel's right to defend itself.

Pelosi and Iran

Hot Air is reporting that Pelosi MIGHT decide to visit the holocaust denier Ahmadinejad.  The obvious comment is how will this photo op play with the American People.  However, I raise another question.  How will this visit play with Israel?  It is an unfortuante fact that most Jews tend to vote democractic in recent political elections.  So, how will this stunt play in the minds of Jewish Americans?  Much like the evolution of African Americans into the Democratic Party in the 1960s, I hope that Jewish Americans will start waking up from the slumber that the Democratic Party is not a friend of Israel.  And a gradual evoluation must take place where by Jews who traditionally vote liberal and democratic wake up to the realities of the world and realize that if they care for the existence of Israel that they start voting like it matters to them. 

Another concern is how will this photoop play with the existing relationship we have with the State of Israel?  How will Israel respond to this action?  What message does this send to the middle east, in general?  These are all concerns that need to be asked before shadow president Pelosi should ever consider before visiting Iran and giving more credibility to a known sponser of terrorism.

UPDATE:  From BOTW - via email:

Enmity Begins at Home
After the smashing success of their Syrian jaunt, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Tom Lantos are considering another trip--"to open a dialogue with Iran," the San Francisco Chronicle reports:

"Speaking just for myself, I would be ready to get on a plane tomorrow morning, because however objectionable, unfair and inaccurate many of (Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's) statements are, it is important that we have a dialogue with him,'' Lantos said. "Speaking for myself, I'm ready to go--and knowing the speaker, I think that she might be.''

Jewish Macarena?

You be the judge.  I think watching these couple of clips that this HAS to be the Jewish Macarena.

View the master clip here.

And this is Tasha and Dishka's versions here and here.

I personally think it is.  What are your opinions?

Brief introduction - favorites etc etc

Greetings again,

I touched on a couple of things in my original post on the blog that I intend to try to focus on.  Now I would like to elaborate a bit more on the subject.  One of the areas of interest is blog stories and interesting things that come up.  Some of my absolute favorite blogs that I have on RSS Feeds are:

Little Green Footballs - focused on the War of Terror - very pro-Israel.
Hot air - Republican - Conservative weblog
Ace of Spades - South Park Republican humor blog
Wizbangblog - Conservative and some humor weblog.  Really more general interest
Yourish.com - VERY pro-Israel - and this is the first blog I was ever exposed to.
Mere Rhetoric - Very Pro-Israel - also - Tasha and Dishka Fridays

There are many others and I plan to blogroll all of them that are on my RSS list.  With the advent of the blogosphere I rarely watch the news anymore, between the 24 hour news cycle and various media scandels (Rathergate, Propoganda to Hezbullah during the recent war with Israel) I would much rather take my news from various blog sources.

Another topic that I will be focusing on is Tasha and Dishka.  They are a famous youtube duo who have published at least 100 clips between youtube and Heep.  I have also been able to chat with them in a room that was created by lovetash22.  The room address is located here.  If you enjoy their clips, please feel free to stop by.  You may even be lucky enough to run into them in the chatroom.

Introduction

Greetings and welcome to this new blog.

I wish I could say I have lofty goals and objectives for this blog, but I dont, yet.  I do have some ideas that I want to cover.  Some serious matters and some more entertainment oriented.  In the entertainment arena I think we should try to have a good portion of the website geared to jokes, funny stories and the occasional clips and topics devoted to Tasha and Dishka.   Anyway, the goal is to have fun and occasionally learn something new.

Hope you enjoy this experience, as much as I will.

Respectfully,

Robert Woolwine
