So That's A Waterboarding, Huh?
No thank you, I'll pass

WARNING! Harsh Language Alert.

OK gang. Below is a video clip from some guy who is a writer for Playboy. Watch it for yourself... judge it for yourself. My video comments are at the end of this posting.

"Waterboarding" does appear to be uncomfortable. It made Khalid Sheik Muhammed uncomfortable enough to confess. More of it should be taking place at Guantanamo Bay.

You ought to go out to Mark Shea blog site or to coalition for clarity at where they argue that the Catholic Church teaching, the Pope, the Cathecism, and the army manual on treatement of prisoners, and much more do not allow anything like waterboarding and that it is torture. I think they lean on anything that offends the dignity of any human being is torture. Having Barry as president places me under the worst type of torture. They are using the Catholic Church as teaching that you caveman, are wrong and going to hell for not listening to the teaching of the church and our pope. No they do not mention you by name, but your post here would qualify you in their eyes as a heretic of the worse order.

Before I saw the video I thought waterboarding was mild torture.

During the video I kept having flashbacks to my days as a teenager at the beach in Santa Monica and Venice. Even earlier before I learned to body surf, I remember riding the waves in on one of those blow up plastic flotation mats ... man, I don't even remember what we called them.

Part of the surf game was being water boarded by the Pacific Ocean. We'd get tumbled underneath the waves with water going up our noses, in our ears, in our eyes along with sand. And our efforts to survive were focused not on the water but on the sandy bottom ... it hurt to get one's head smashed on the bottom by the wave.

One thing though, the salt water doesn't really give you that burning sensation that chlorinated tap water does.

They really ought to have a water boarding party at the White House, and then another one on the Oprah show, and the Letterman show and on the floor of Congress (Barney Frank comes to mind ... yeah have the torturers themselves such as Pelosi waterboarded on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Let's not waterboard the old liberal supreme court justices though, not while prezobomama is in power.

Battle at those catholic sites now have Mark Shea saying no difference between Enola Gay flight to hiroshima and Osama Bin Laden sending terrorist to 9/11. I have signed off those two sites as the putrid odor may cause a virus to my computer.

Based on the definition you read.

Torture: Having to put up with songs like "Ashes" during Lent

Torture: Having to sit through an Obama speech

Torture: Having to listen to a leftist priest undermine Scripture & the authentic teachingas of the Catholic Church

Torture: Listening to Pelosi & Biden justify their support of abortion lets them still be able to claim to be authenticly Catholic

Mark Shea's blogs are mush; he sports excessive supernumeraries; if my salvation depended on him, I'd still be a pagan. Jesus spoke clearly; whereas these cumbayah type's ideas are marshmellow instead of barbecued moose.

They are looking for a few mild men; whereas it takes more than marshmellow Catholicism to haul in a few good men. Like my impenitent 89 year old Lutheran uncle who did the third wave to hit the beach at Iwo Jima and caught a souvenir there, says, "You have to be a little bit troublesome to join the Marine Corps in the first place" ... he is not only a good man but a great guy ... with a SEAL as a grandson.

The Mark Sheas of this world catch the ones that swim in lukewarm water, and have no knowledge of what goes on when it gets hot or cold.

I am beginning to think about the frequency of water boarding on a given individual.

You'd suppose the guy would get used to it, and appreciate that it keeps his sinuses clear.

But, no, they just keep whining. I am convinced now that the only reason they give out top secrets about terrorism is that this way they can get a lawyer (political hack) to claim that it was the waterboarding that forced them to squeal.

It is possible that these captured insurgents have seen the light and want very much to reveal as much as they can. But because this would get them in hot water (huh?) with the dudes with the scimitars, they need a cover story, and so they drum up this waterboarding defense. It is not hard to fool the liberals, because they believe in any and everything except reality and truth. So they get some Congressperson, high on prescription meds, to start a wave rolling through his packrat colleagues, and thus the waterboarding torture issue.

"Mark Shea saying no difference between Enola Gay flight to hiroshima and Osama Bin Laden sending terrorist to 9/11."

Further proving that Shea is a sheep in dire need of the protection of the sheepdog. The wolf would certainly rip his throat out if it were not for that mean, nastry ol' sheepdog.

I am happily acquainted with a pack of wolves. I always bring this up even if it gets redundant.

Ol' Wolfie II, in his prime, stood over seven feet and his forelegs and paws are way way bigger than those of most strong big men. Today Ol' Wolfie is aging and last time I saw him he had been sick and lost a hundred pounds. At that weight he looked about the same size as the two upstart wolves who were vying to take his place.

We chased a wolf in the forest in Idaho while driving down a logging road a few years ago.

So we're threatened by a group of people who will on occasion cut the head off of reporters or hostages with dull knives, and we can't Waterboard?

I bet we're in for a really rough ride the next couple of years.

I think Shea is simply going through a fit. He no doubt is kicking himself for not heeding the "Caution, Harsh Language" signs. So, now he is blaming the Cavemen for waterboarding his ears.
