International "Draw A Picture of Mohammed" Day!

Cartoonist poses method to give Jihadists myriad targets

Have you heard about the Seattle cartoonist who has proposed
a way to give the Islamic hardheads so many targets they
won't know where to send another bomb-strapped virgin to
blow up the world?

The news is all over such on-line news organs as "The
Huffington Post" and "The Guardian."

If everyone draws a picture of Mohammed on the same day,
the Islamic terrorists won't know who to target.

At least, that's the proposed strategy.

Congress, of course, has it own ideas.

Would you believe that 17th District Democratic
Representative Chet Edwards joined 402 of his colleagues and
voted 403-11 to impose "sanctions, accountability, and
divestment" upon multinational corporations and governments
who persist in buying Iran's crude?

That's what some people do do.

That's what Representative Edwards did did.

The motion calls for the formation of a conference committee
with the Senate to study its bill, a measure that would
prohibit the U.S. government from purchasing goods from
companies that are subject to sanctions under an existing
law passed in 2008 and expand sanctions on foreign companies
investing more than $20 million in Iran's oil and gas

At least those 403 brave souls mustered the courage to vote.
An additional 3 registered themselves as merely "present,"
while 11 members of the House voted against the motion.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, it would only
cost $550 million between the years 2010 and 2014 to
administer the programs of watchdogging the watchdogs to
prevent any such attempts at getting into cahoots with the
Iranians and buying their oil.

It seems everything in our global economy has its price tag.
