Ball just dropped in Times Square...Happy 2006

Pro Football Picks

This is turning into a most difficult week to pick a winner. Lots of teams out of it, lots of teams a win will mean nothing to, and lots of intangibles.

But here goes:

NY Giants over Oakland
Denver over San Diego
Carolina over Atlanta
Cleveland over Baltimore
Dallas over St. Louis
Seattle over Green Bay
Indianapolis over Arizona
Jacksonville over Tennessee
Cincinnati over Kansas City
Chicago over Minnesota
New England over Miami
Buffalo over NY Jets
Washington over Philadelphia
Pittsburgh over Detroit
San Francisco over Houston
Tampa Bay over New Orleans

I'm 68-25 on the season, and before that, the perfect pot of pro pigskin prognostications went 67-50.


Thought it was going to be a tough week and boy was I ever right. Lots of teams just didn't show up to play football, and we went 10-6, our worst week yet.

78-31 for the season, now on to the playoffs.

Happy New Year

Since booger is running so far behind I thought it best to post this now with the hope some of you might see it within the next day or so.

From our house to yours, all the best and may the new year bring you nothing but pure undiluted joy, happiness, and success in all you do.

As for me, I'm going to try and make some Cuban bread tomorrow. Have had a hankerin' for it since Steve over at Hog on Ice mentioned it a day or so ago, and what's a few more pounds amongst friends...

Don't know if there's any truth to the rumor, but word has it that PJ Media has the Scintilatting 70 hot on the case of whether or not this is actually New Years Eve, and have promised to report upon it by early April.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Would you pay $175 for a pound of coffee beans which had passed through the backside of a furry mammal in Indonesia?

Old news to those who've visited or lived in Indonesia, and the stuff is bloody awful.

But the lefties love two things as much as anything else; their exotic coffees and small furry animals, so it's a match made in heaven. Just wait until the left coast loons REALLY learn about this swill and the Indonesians will be sending over bogus cat-shit-coffee by the boatload. By then the fad will be so all pervasive that marketing company's will be begging Teddy Kennedy to swallow some coffee cherries each day so they can sell the ultimate in what a liberal would drink each and every morning. And to all my unconservative friends, just don't ever make the mistake of leaning over a Teddy-Roasted Brew and ask if you can dunk.

Bad form.

This In From The Jerusalem Post...

'United States planning a military strike against Iran'

"The United States government reportedly began coordinating with NATO its plans for a possible military attack against Iran.
The German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel collected various reports from the German media indicating that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization are examining the prospects of such a strike.
According to the report, CIA chief Porter Gus, in his last visit to Turkey on December 12, requested Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to provide military bases to the United States in 2006 from where they would be able to launch an assault."

Okay, it's from the Jerusalem Post, but was first obtained from a kraut leak which can mean most anything. The Germans might be so frickin scared we're going to off yet another valued trading partner that they published genuine information in order to give them a heads up, but always remember that these are the same people Julius Caesar warned the world about. The Germans, not the moslems. Weren't any meatbombers around in old Jullie's time, and if there were he'd a wasted the lot of them. The ONLY time and place such a totally fucked system of beliefs COULD have arisen was during the dark ages, but I digress.

Anyway, keep your fingers crossed that it's the real deal and we'll soon be seeing Stealth Bombers over Tehran. Then Woody Allen can write the screenplay and start being funny again. Could even subtitle it "The Day We Nuked Mecca."

To All..

Who have commented on these pages. First of all, thank you for taking the time to say something, good or bad. Second of all, for the past few days Booger has been crashing me when I open the comment section, and to be honest it's simply too tiring to reboot and reboot and reboot some more, so mea culpa. I blog to chitchat over the net, to express my opinion, to make some diehard regulars chuckle, to inform, to upset the loons. I do not blog to frig around with Googles version of hell on earth. I welcome the bad with the good because some of you make good points and that in turn makes me think. Yeah, yeah, for me it hurts to think and I said it before ya so nyaaaa nyaaa.

I DO try to read everything, and it'd suck for this or ANY blog to be nothing more than a mutual admiration society. I detest the hive mind and enjoy a well said different point of view. I don't know about the rest of you, but I've always learned more from my mistakes, not my successes, and if you believe I've said or done something askew, then feel free to tell my sorry ass about it.

Final Regular Season Game Looms, And Why The Jets Are 3-12...

Because they have the worst coach in pro football? Maybe. When a man is stupid enough to say things like this, one wonders:

"We have to get more yards when he catches the ball," Edwards said. "Because he has that potential to do that. You think a guy who ends up with 70 catches in this league and is a good player like Laveranues, they should be at 1,000 yards. That's just my opinion."

And what a dumb opinion for a head coach. Now, I know that Edwards is clueless along the sidelines, for when the game begins he and is merry crew of dysfunctional men posing as professionals bring new meaning to chinese-fire-drill.

Laveranues has had 4 lousy quarterbacks throwing the ball to him this season, and the real wonder is how he has managed to catch 69 passes, NOT that he hasn't gained more yards. What a real coach says in a situation like this is, "we've got to find some way to get the ball in his hands more often," and not, "gee, why when they barely get the ball to him can't he twist his body full around and run some mores?"

Edwards is the Norm Crosby of football, the man that sports writers have to look for an interpreter to decipher what in the hell he's trying to say because he does not speak English very well at all, and is a joke to listen to. He speaks in cliches, never finishes a sentence, mumbles unintelligibly, and is the kind of guy that stares at your lips when you speak, a stern frown upon his face as he attempts to understand the question.

Each and every year teams are beset by injuries. It's the nature of the game, and a good staff finds a way to plug the gaps. This year, all of the plans went south when the first two quarterbacks went down, and the Jets proved that without star caliber players a less than star caliber assortment of coaches can do nothing but lose games. Sure, a team that was figured to go 13-3 or 12-4 drops to something close to .500 when the starting QB is out for the season, but 3-12? Every opposing team knew that the Jets were demoralized and didn't have the right type of head coach to pull the team through the injuries, so they stuffed the line of scrimmage and stopped the running game because there simply wasn't going to BE a passing game, not with this crew running the show.

Every week, deja vu all over again. And now Edwards disses his star receiver. Ah, Hermmy? Coles can only catch the ball, fella, he can't throw it to himself. He breaks off route after route trying to come back to the ball so the aging or inexperienced QB's have SOMEONE to toss it to, so of course he's not getting a lot of yards.

But I guess Herm has to point the finger at someone, so he picks Coles because the guy has matured and is strong enough to take the heat. Because if he honestly thinks that ANY of this years' breakdown was the fault of his receiving corps he doesn't deserve to be an assistant let alone a head coach. At ANY level.

When You Dry Fire...

Here's a handy little feature to play with.

Clicking the link calls up a page with a target and the means to engage a timer. You set the interval between two beeps; the first beep signals you to draw and fire, and you have to accomplish it before the second beep beeps.

So go play beat the Gunny's time and see if you can present arms and squeeze in under 1 second. From the holster. Hand above, but not touching the gun.

And The Ultimate "Sidearm" For When You Just Gotta Drop A Meatbomber In His Tracks...

The .600 Nitro Express. One of the few weapons featured that I have not had the pleasure of firing. Has been known to crack wrists, dislocate shoulders, and there's a flock of unsubstantiated scuttlebutt out there on how more than one or two idjits have had the barrel sock them square in the brain-housing-group from the recoil. More than anything, it's a symbol of absolute overkill when it comes to handguns, and would therefore be the perfect lights-out-Ali as the weapon of choice for dispatching pesky splodeydopes as Misha likes to call them.

And let's not forget the trolls who frequent Steve's place.

Nice Looking Holster...

If you've ever fired a .454 Casull, then think of the .500 Linebaugh as a similar piece with a tad more push-back in place of muzzle flip. And smooth? Imagine squeezing the trigger and feeling what amounts to a glass rod swathed in honey suddenly breaking.

And while I'm no fan of brown holsters, or brown shoes either for that matter, the scrollwork is magnificent on this one. Click to enlarge the thing and get the full effect.

Ain't She Purdy...

.500 Linebaugh. Five-inch barrel. 440 grain bullets.


More Fun In Paleo-World...All Your Border Crossings Are Now Belong Us

Palestinian Police Storm Gaza-Egypt Border - Yahoo! News

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - "Palestinian policemen angry over the killing of a fellow officer stormed the Gaza-Egypt border crossing Friday, firing shots in the air and forcing European monitors to close the border and flee, Palestinian and European officials said.

The European observers — responsible for monitoring the crossing and ensuring the terms of an Israeli-Palestinian agreement are upheld — fled the area, officials said.

The border was closed because according to the Israeli-Palestinian agreement the crossing cannot operate if the European contingent is not present, said Julio De La Guardia, spokesman for the European monitors."

Wonder how long it'll be before the UN gets around to somehow blaming Israel for this. And wouldn't you like to see the identification from these so-called Palestinian Policemen? Yeah, right. Junior-G-Man badges made in Hong Kong, if that.
65% of Palestinians Applaud Terror Attacks on US and Europe

So says a poll conducted by the goatfuckers calling themselves the Palestinian Authority, and the only thing newsworthy is the fact that ONLY 65% of these proto-humans feel that way.

Hell, 90% or more of the ultra-liberal-loons in this country are fans of the meatbombs who kill people for no other reason than to prove that their god has the biggest dick in the universe, and come on, get real. Can you really imagine a supreme being allowing such bullshit to go on in his name. Would you treat your frickin goldfish this badly? And please, no crap about free will, okay. My frickin dog has free will and I don't let him shit all over the house because it's his decision, let alone kill other dogs just because he can.

Sometimes I feel that as a species we'll never grow up.

The review of the Baba Wawa special on heaven was what interested me the most. People the world over killing one another to gain access and special consideration towards the next life has intrigued me ever since I was mature enough to ask questions, and the many concepts of heaven combine to form a wonderful mythology.

Not being an atheist is at times difficult, for it is very hard to explain how a supreme being knew so little of the natural world as evinced in the scriptures of various religions. I'm simply not bright enough to determine on my own if there are deities in the universe, but AM wise enough to realize that they couldn't possibly be as stupid as the various faiths say they are.

ACLU Screams No Fair...

Yes indeed. The American Civits Living Underground Union is calling foul over a justice department decision to determine who leaked the highly classified wiretapping program to the NY Slimes. These are the same schmucks who were all for determining who...besides everyone in D.C. as well as her son who regularly tells anyone who will listen that his mommy works for the CIA..."outed" Valerie Plame Wilson. Otherwise known as 00-Doofus and licensed to send her hubby on lavish vacations at the taxpayers expense.

The double standard is alive and well and has taken refuge within the enclaves manned by the loony left. Did I say "manned"? Sorry. Who in their right mind would refer to any of these skirts as men.

Read all about it here.

Dragging Along

And my heart hasn't been in it, so mea culpa. Tough for me, a dyed in the wool holiday freak to get up in arms about one silly story or another but I promise to shake myself out of this lethargy as soon as the evil spirit moves me. There were plenty of days that saw 15-20 posts here at Messenger, but this time of the year, again for me at least, is dedicated to feeling good, not chastising one idjit or another because they're, well, an idjit.

If I only had the energy to break out the "good" camera and head to the shore, I could take dark and blurry pics of little specs in the sky and call them birds. Like Charles does at LGF when he's tired of reading the tons of stuff sent his way and needs some filler.


Besides, Blogger takes so long to publish, anything I do this morning probably won't be seen until this afternoon and folks have long since stopped coming by for something timely. Timely as in this hour, not this year like PJ Media does.

And One Bad Joke Deserves Another...

Three construction workers have taken a break for lunch atop the skeleton of a skyscraper they've been working on. The Irishman opens his lunch box and shouts, "Saints preserve us, not corned beef and cabbage again. I swear, if the wife makes me this again tomorrow I'll jump."

The Frenchman open his lunch box and exclaims, "Croissants? Again? Merde, but if she makes me this again tomorrow, I too shall jump."

The Pollock open his, and sure enough, it's cold sausage just like he gets every day. "Dammit it all, guys!" he rants, "Enough is enough so I'm with youse two."

The next day arrives, and the Irishman pops open the box, shakes his head in sorrow, and jumps. The Frenchman takes one look at HIS lunch, and follows his friend off of the building. The Polish fellow closes his eyes, takes a deep breath before opening his lunch, but...sausages again so he jumps too.

Several days later all three wives are standing at the entrance to the funeral parlor and discussing how dreadful the last few days have been for them.

"Poor Pierre," the first wife laments, "If he'd only told me I'd have made him something else."

"Ah to be sure," the Irish wife agrees. "Poor old Mike would'a just had to say peep and I'd a made him whatever he asked for."

The third wife has been listening to all of this, shaking her head as if in disbelief over this tragic turn of events.

"I don't understand." She finally says to the other two women. "Every day, day after day, Stashy make his own lunch."

#'s One and Three Aren't Talking So Police Are Focusing On...

Three Wyoming Men Held In Killing Of Second Man...

And this of course reminds me of a joke...

So the Polish guy has had it with his wife's constant nagging and pulls out a gun. "Don't laugh," he tells her as he points it at his own head, "You're next..."

When You're The Mainstream Media, You Can Have It Both Ways

"Consumer Confidence Soars in December"--headline, Associated Press, Dec. 28

"United States of Angst: Americans Stressed, Depressed, Polls Show"--headline, Agence France-Presse, Dec. 28

So then, precisely how long HAVE we been spying on suspicious correspondence from overseas...

"Our members have worked for years with law enforcement with an objective to preserve lawfully authorized surveillance," said Tom Amontree, a spokesman for the US Telecom Association, the industry group representing most phone companies.

"We have no comment on national security matters."Added Eric Rabe, a spokesman for Verizon Communications Inc., one of the nation's phone giants: "We typically make law enforcement agencies get a court order. Our default is to cooperate, but we don't feel we should appropriate customer information lightly. We try to make sure what we do is in compliance with the law.

"During the Cold War, telecom organizations freely cooperated with government agencies regarding national security, and there seemed to be little worry about whether the requests were accompanied by court orders, one expert said.

"In the 1960s, I worked for an international telex and telegram carrier in their Washington office," said Bob Atkinson, policy research director of the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information. "Every day a government agent stopped by to pick up copies of all telegrams that were sent overseas."I asked about it once and was told we'd been making copies available to the government since World War II."I think the practice only ended when people stopped sending telegrams."

Sniff. The poor terrorists. Spied upon for decades. Thank heavens the liberals have gotten wind of this and will finally put a stop to the monitoring of what our enemies are saying to one another. Isn't fair, us being so big and they so small, why they could even be considered...dare I say it...minorities!

[Meanwhile...somewhere in New York Charles Schumer jolts awake from a peaceful nap and shouts EUREKA...]

Let's Stick With Festivus

NOTE TO EDITORS: This is an updated version of a column by Ann Coulter that first ran three years ago in December. ** ** **

"President Bush's 2005 Kwanzaa message began with the patently absurd statement: "African-Americans and people around the world reflect on African heritage during Kwanzaa."

I believe more African-Americans spent this season reflecting on the birth of Christ than some phony non-Christian holiday invented a few decades ago by an FBI stooge. Kwanzaa is a holiday for white liberals, not blacks. It is a fact that Kwanzaa was invented in 1966 by a black radical FBI stooge, Ron Karenga, aka Dr. Maulana Karenga. Karenga was a founder of United Slaves, a violent nationalist rival to the Black Panthers and a dupe of the FBI. In what was probably ultimately a foolish gamble, during the madness of the '60s the FBI encouraged the most extreme black nationalist organizations in order to discredit and split the left.

The more preposterous the organization, the better. Karenga's United Slaves was perfect. In the annals of the American '60s, Karenga was the Father Gapon, stooge of the czarist police.

"It's as if David Duke invented a holiday called "Anglika," and the president of the United States issued a presidential proclamation honoring the synthetic holiday. People might well stand up and take notice if that happened."

Yes, we forget how very few folks remember or ever knew the roots of Kwanzaa, but I know for a fact that few in Africa have ever heard of this nonsense. Should ask actress Charlize Theron. She's African-American, born there no less, and perhaps SHE could shed come light on the subject. In the meantime, read all of Ann's untribute to this made-up, worthless piece of shit they've been trying to pass off as a real holiday for decades now.

Moslem Scumball Kills Daughters...

Pakistani Killed Daughters to Save 'Honor' - Yahoo! News

MULTAN, Pakistan - Nazir Ahmed appears calm and unrepentant as he recounts how he slit the throats of his three young daughters and their 25-year old stepsister to salvage his family's "honor" — a crime that shocked Pakistan.

Hundreds of girls and women are murdered by male relatives each year in this conservative Islamic nation, and rights groups said Wednesday such "honor killings" will only stop when authorities get serious about punishing perpetrators."

In other words, shit from the dawn of recorded history. Men killing off the womenfolk because they didn't remain pure or some other ridiculous bullcrap. These are the folks that Cindy the seasick she-serpent thinks are freedom fighters. These are the people she, and others like her, believe to be veritable salts of the earth. And why aren't any feminist groups attacking these murdering slugs for all they're worth? Why no condemnation from the broads who'd drop kick you half a mile if you held a door open for them? What, think they're scared shitless of the moslems and wouldn't dare take on some really scary men?

Oh. Okay.

The Slow Season

I was once a faithful follower of NRO's The Corner. Whenever something "big" happens, it seems as if a dozen or more relatively conservative columnists rush to cover the topic in a blog-rolling sort of way.

Whenever something not big happens...and this means 90% of what staunch conservatives pay attention to every's an unusual experience to follow the scroll.

Akin to hanging your clothes on a line. On a bright and warm and pleasant srping day. You go through the motions, enjoy the fresh air, then soon come to the realization that, after all, you are doing nothing but watching clothes dry.

You tell yourself that hey, you're outside, communing with nature, soaking up the rays, but it's boring as hell. The Corner is not blogging any more than Pajamas Media is blogging. Nothing vented, nothing gained. I still drop by, but will really begin paying attention when the Alito hearings begin because the folks there can dicipher lawyerese far better than I. Or the Dems on the Judiciary Committee for that matter.

This IS a boring time of the year, and the blogs are drooping under the strain of trying to find something worthy of attacking, but not the MSM ones such as what NRO offers. The hive-mind just amplifies the buzz and tries to make it more attention worthy but it remains as tedious as watching the clothes dry.

Looking for a good CCW holster... fit a 3" Ruger GP-100.

Thinking about using the GP for CCW but don't have a decent holster designed for concealment, so if you've some experience with a good one, be a pal and drop me an email. The Glock 27 is easy, but a larger gun such as the .357 Ruger can be something of a pain and not many folks carry such a beastie.

I need something as a stop-gap until I go whole hog and CC a big bore, and by the way, I should really change my email addy on Blogger but until I do the one I look at the most is


64% Of Americans Believe Suspect Phone Calls Should Be Monitored..

Polls, schmols, but what the hell. Rasmussen polling has some interesting numbers up concerning how Americans feel about phone calls linked to terror suspects, and we got the word from Michelle Malkin.

Can you even imagine the furor if Bush, or for that matter ANY President left a reasonable stone unturned in the attempt to protect us. THAT my dear friends, would be just cause for impeachment, not the fact that the man has been good to his word in using every resource he can muster to prevent militant Islam from attacking us. It was fine with the liberals when Janet Reno sent in machinegun toting thugs to kidnap a child, kicking down the door to someone's home just to keep Castro happy, but let Bush give the okay to listen in on those who would kill us as fast and as often as they could, and suddenly our liberties have been impugned.


Thursday's STOP-THE-ACLU...

Ex-ACLU Attorney Wants You To STOP The ACLU...

by Jay on 12-28-05 @ 2:21 am Filed under ACLU, Church And State, War On Terror, PETITIONS, News
One of our contributors, Craig McCarthy, set up a petition to stop taxpayer funding of the ACLU, quite a while ago. We are trying to help Craig reach at least 25,000 signatures. We are not that far away.
Just two days ago, I put up as one of Stop The ACLU’s best posts of 2005, my interview with former ACLU lawyer, mr. Reese Lloyd. I had no idea it would be such great timing.
Mr. Reese strkes again in a podcast with Congressman Hostettler.

Support STOP all you can, please, and click into the full story if you'd be so kind.

Whew...that only took half an hour to finally post...some kind of record when using Booger. I blog using dialup, with AOL as my ISP, and Google's Blooger as the blog vendor, so it isn't any wonder that it becomes a hit or miss proposal most days. I at least try getting the story itself out, then comment after I'm sure all went well with the basics. That of course means that sometimes I don't get back to commenting at all if one of the unholy trinity is glitching, but like the Frogs say, kay sera sera.

Bitch session is over, so please go help out Jay at STOP.

Russian Rocket Carries Europes Answer To GPS Into Orbit...

And in a few short years, disadvantaged French youths will be able to find their way through unfamiliar neighborhoods at night without having to set fires.

The BBC is carrying the story of how the Euro's, tired of relying upon American technology, have begun the task of creating their own global posititioning satellites that will be "civilian" in nature, and "assert Europes independance".

Check back with me in 5 or 6 years, and if the thing works here's a wager the terrorists will love it. "Run by civilians for civilians." That means there'll be little or no security because there's little or no money, and by 2010 look for their systems to be so full of bugs and glitches as to be rendered useless.

They're calling it Galileo, and no word yet from the Vatican as to the rumor they'll excommunicate the thing for daring to say the world is round.

Meet The Bedwetters...

Was gonna headline this, Know Thine Enemy, but the left isn't an enemy of anyone but themselves. Lil kids in dark and clammy basements fretting over the possibility of getting drafted and screaming their fear for all the world to hear.

The Washington Monthly

Found the link to this liberal love fest at, of all places, NRO. No, it isn't a chick blog where they hang around describing their...monthly's...and here's some of the more amusing comments about the proprietors' list of acceptable conservative blogs:

"I'm sure there are reasonable conservative blogs, but there are no moral ones."

"What's awful is his selective application of principles. He'll decry Kos as hateful for withholding his sympathy from US mercenaries killed in Iraq, while keeping Lennie Green Footballs -- who celebrated the death of a 22-year-old girl by naming her their idiot of the year -- on his blogroll."

"Powerline proves that going to school in the New Hampshire outback can so radically twist one's perspective that the world forever looks like a tree."

"If I were asked for a list of reasonable conservative blogs, I surely wouldn't include Instapundit. Insta is neither intellectually honest nor actually provocative. He's a small step below Powerline in terms of being pure Republican hackery and Bush haigiography."

"Excellent, Kevin!
You've already spit on the workers today, let's be nice to the man. Been living on your knees long?
That said, Ann's Bughouse is a decent blog if you're stoned.
Wait, I think it's Althouse."

"If it was revealed that Bush ate infants, Malkin and the rest would have "favourite" BBQ Baby-ribs recipes posted next day and all would swear they had been eating babies for years."

"My opinion, right-left is roughly equivalent to elite-common. It's the common righties who carry the banner of ignorance and inadvertently level the playing field for the economic elite."

Have your own peek. These kids are hilarious, and you'll be laughing in no time. Unless you're someone like, say, Kim du Toit, and take this silly shit so seriously you'll be in a frickin rage for a week over it.

Perusing The Usually Unperusable...

Such as The Christian Science Monitor, courtesy of LGF:

"...(one young woman) who converted to Islam three years ago after asking herself spiritual questions to which she found no answers in her childhood Catholicism, says she finds the suspicion her new religion attracts “wounding.” “For me,” she adds, “Islam is a message of love, of tolerance and peace.”

Indeed. Love, tolerance, but let's not forget she spelled piece wrong, as in pieces of exploded bodies strewn across the landscape. Some folks see what they want to see, and those who are natural-born dreamers see Loch Ness monsters, abominable snowmen, UFO's, and peaceful moslems. Scary creatures all.

Islam was founded upon the principle, as were MOST early religions, of convert or destroy. The other Old Testament factions mellowed throughout the centuries, but not the Followers Of the Pedophile Prophet. It remains a worship-this-way-or die religion, isn't changing anytime soon, and desperately needs the Backstage Bessie's for all sorts of logistical reasons.

Deadly Dai Bao

I'm unsure of the spelling, but it's an asian potato "peeler". More like a half-sized hatchet, meathook combo than anything else.

New York Daily News - Home - Queens man busted in potato-peeler slay

"A Queens man faces murder charges after stabbing a new drinking buddy with a potato peeler and beating him with a religious candle on Christmas, authorities said yesterday.
Adolfo Carreon, 41, of Corona was busted in the bloody slaying just before noon in his 97th St. home, cops said.
Armed with a potato peeler, Carreon knifed Victor Mendez, 36, in the face and head several times when a fight broke out in the basement apartment, police sources said."

I post this only because I was once a neighbor of Adolfo. He lived just around the block from me and was as crazy as a loon after a sip or two of the hard stuff, so it isn't a surprise to see someone finally called his bluff when he'd get half a bag on and scream "ganna keel you mang." Once an Irish-Italian neighborhood, that part of the world is now home to switchblades, Saturday-Night-Specials, and one of the easiest places to buy any firearm you could imagine. The Russian and Italian mobs finance the hispanic gun dealers because minorities get a slap on the wrist if caught, but if you can speak fluent English it's racketeering charges on top of everything else and say goodbye to the neighborhood for 10-15.

Many thanks to His Majesty for bringing this to our attention.

Here's why Charles At LGF Could Never Be A Genuine Journalist...

He sees a moslem in the woodpile, in EVERY woodpile: And sweet Gerogia Brown, Chuckie, Breaking Gas?

lgf: Breaking: Gas Attack in Russian Store

Gas Sickens 78 in Russian Store. (Hat tip: LGF readers.)
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia - More than 70 people at a home-supply store were sickened Monday as employees at three other outlets of the chain found gas-filled containers and timers hidden in boxes. Police said they believed a commercial dispute or blackmail attempt was behind the incidents.

"The AP’s story is suspiciously quick with the assertion that this was a “blackmail” attempt. There’s plenty of organized crime in Russia, but there’s also a very active jihad."

Ah, Charles? The cops said they believed it to be a local fracas or blackmail deal, NOT the AP. And it's not as if I wouldn't mind tying the Followers Of the Pedophile Prophet to everything up to and including the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, but there is nothing in this story that leads one to believe in a jihad connection. Leading your readers to assume there might be is kneejerkalism and not journalism, Charles. And, while LGF provided a good and necessary service in keeping an eye on the REAL moslem nutcases for us, it's wackjob reporting such as this that gives conservative blogging a bad name, and is more proof positive that you should NOT be one of the people in charge of replacing the old mainstream media. LGF has turned into the ambulance-chasing entity of the internet, and it's a crying shame that hundreds of thousands of people frequent this disaster weekly while real meat and potato blogs of genuine journalistic integrity languish without readers.

Pajamas Media is awful, and Little Green Footballs is getting worse. Shame too. With the built-in audience the could'a, should'a, would'a's are endless. You could have been a contender, Chuckie. Can't write worth a darn, but many a good editor hasn't been able to string more than three words together and still make sense, and editing should have been your forte having spent all of this time sorting through the thousands of suggestions from your legion of readers. Was better to have been lucky than good, I guess.

Too late to call Dennis the Peasant and sign on someone with a personality?

December 26, 2005 -- "MEMBERS of Congress have been known to vote for legislation they haven't read. But is it possible Congress authorized warrantless wiretaps without realizing it?
That's what President Bush implies when he defends the National Security Agency's warrantless eavesdropping on Americans' phone calls and e-mail messages by citing the Authorization for Use of Military Force that Congress approved three days after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. More fundamentally, Bush believes the Constitution gives him the power to authorize this surveillance, no matter what Congress or the courts might have to say about it."

This is the latest in a disturbing trend by the Post to add a ridiculous liberal mindset into an otherwise staunchly conservative newspaper. And just under Michelle Malkin's decent enough ovvering that tells the real story.

A couple of weeks back, they featured a boring bemoan from a NY surgeon who worked on a wounded police officer. Now, doctors have been in a state of rant over the effect weapons have on the human body from at least the time of the Romans, so anything they have to say on the matter is prejudicial to the point of meaningless blather. When the D.C. sniper was out and about there were plenty of Doctor's carrying on about the wounds received via the M-16-like weapon the crazy frig was using to cap innocent people, and the reality of the matter is... thank heavens the idiot used a varmint rifle and not something designed for big game or none of his victims would have even come close to surviving. Medical professionals aren't firearms experts and should leave the diatribes to those who know something of what they are talking about, but the old standby for lazy journalists is to quiz a clueless Doc for juicy tidbits describing the evil weapons mankind has wrought. Of course they're liberal, of course they're antigun, and of course they believe the liberal mantra that civilians are basically stupid and shouldn't be permitted to own firearms.

So what's the Post up to? Sneaking in a stupid story now and again is one thing, but it seems to be more than a case of slack ass reporters just punching the clock. Testing the waters, perhaps. Murdoch will do anything to increase readership, and it does seem that he's put out the word to lure a moonbat or two by featuring the occasional loonytunes story...but at what expense? I for one wouldn't continue to read the Post were these incredibly inept features to run as a matter of course, and cannot imagine most staunch conservatives would either.

Michelle Malkin On The Spying Flap...

"Alarmists in the Beltway want investigations (but not of the leakers who fed the Times its story). The civil-liberties sky is falling, they say, and never have Americans been subjected to such invasive snooping.

Funny enough, another story about unprecedented domestic spying measures broke a week before the Times' stunt. But neither the Times nor the ACLU nor the Democratic Party leadership had a peep to say about the reported infringements on Americans' civil liberties. Sen. Charles Schumer (by the way, Chuck, how's that apology to Lt. Gov. Michael Steele over his stolen credit report coming along?) did not rush to the cameras to call the alleged privacy breach "shocking." Sen. Robert Byrd did not awake from his slumber to decry the adoption of "the thuggish practices of our enemies." The indignant Times editorial board did not call for heads to roll.

That's because the targets of the spy scandal that didn't make the front-page headlines were politically incorrect right-wing extremists."

While every administration caters to the whims of it's constituency, and often turns a blind eye to their transgressions, Michelle is spot on in her assessment of the chicken-littles trying to convince the American public that electronic eavesdropping has never before been used against Americans. Once a people achieve "minority" status they are endowed by liberals with an aura of invincibility, because, as we've said on many occasions, they automatically become the ones who'll vote for leftwing politicians. The Democratic gravy train makes scheduled stops everywhere people want something for nothing, or extraordinary protection the majority does not enjoy. Read all of Michelle, she's on a good roll with this one.

DaVinci Had One, And So Does PJM...


You know, the Pajamas Media code that Michelle Malkin had to wait for because it was just so durned hard to create. 30 days. Several other blogs had it, but it took a month for the Pajama Party to get aound to arguably their most important member.

Steve over at Hog On Ice is running it and I hated the thought of him getting in trouble all by his lonesome should the PJ's drop trow over this.

Don't know who is dumber...

Me, or Booger. As it can take 5 hours or more for a posting to be published I paid little attention to the fact that my football picks weren't showing up, but since they are nowhere to be found I can safely presume that the angels of the internet intercepted them and are bound for parts unknown.

Whatever. It's Christmas and I'm not letting something as silly as a messed up blog service ruin the day. Not the first post I've lost and for sure won't be the last.

Went 10-3 yesterday, and for today we like :

Minnesota over Baltimore
Chicago over Green Bay

And to close out Monday Night Football on ABC:

New England over the NY Jets

Season to date: 57-21 for me, and 67-50 for the perfect pot of pro pigskin prognostication.


With the Jets losing to The Pats on Monday Night Football, our week did an 11-4 march to mediocrity. 68-25 on the year.

Since When Did This Become An Issue In Wisconsin?

Man Pleads No Contest to Cattle Relations

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (AP) - "A 64-year-old man has pleaded no contest to charges in Clark County Circuit Court after telling police he regularly had been using calves for sexual gratification. Harold G. Hart was placed on two years probation Thursday and ordered to have psychological counseling and an..."

Ah, okay. I read further on, and they weren't HIS cows. Was wondering how they were going to stop the mik farmers from nailin' ol' Betsy, but that wasn't the deal at all. Men from Wisconsin are mighty fond of their cattle and I can see why this caused a ruckus.

Give The Germans A Dead Tree Over Another Person Anyday...

Julius Caesar himself noted that Germans were far better with inanimate objects than people, so...

BERLIN (Reuters) - "Some Germans would rather spend Christmas with a tree than with their families, a new poll shows.

The survey in Thursday's Focus weekly news magazine found 75 percent of Germans could not contemplate Christmas without their beloved "Tannenbaum," the traditional tree many cover lavishly with candles, lights and decorations."

Once more into the breech...

And my last word on this flubdubbery about monitoring terrorist phone calls, sob, sob, sniff. Well, the last word today at least.

The Times, the Boston Globe, and US News have released classified information, REAL classified information and not just cocktail party chit-chat about an office manager who once had a license to collate and got her husband out of her hair for a time by sending him to lavish UN brunches in the middle east.

And they've obviously gotten quite a bit of it wrong, and this I can tell by the White House's LACK of response. Would not surprise me if the administration itself was responable for disseminating faulty intelligence, or at the very least won't explain what's been going on for fear of divulging sensitive data above and beyond what the 5th Columnists masquerading as newspaper people have.

NO one in the White House SHOULD be answering these allegations because psst...there's a war going on, our people are in harms way, so let's not tell the enemy what we DO or DON'T know about his plans.

Not that the real loons care about our people in the armed services, but taking a deep breath and reevaluating all of these wild ass claims might be just the ticket here.

At least through the Holidays? Just so the troops don't have to be reading about how they've been submarined by their own media?

Come on now. Make like our Marines are convicted murderers you want to save so very very much, and have a heart.

Merry Christmas

I'll never get over how wonderful it is to be home for the holidays, especially Christmas, and that's most likely why I still love it so.

From our home to yours, have the best day every.

Merry Christmas from Lisa & Bob

Waiting For Teddy...

To offer an apology for jumping the gun. Should I hold my breath?

Thursday's Boston Globe featured an op-ed by Sen. Ted Kennedy in which he huffs and puffs about jackbooted government thugs:

"Just this past week there were public reports that a college student in Massachusetts had two government agents show up at his house because he had gone to the library and asked for the official Chinese version of Mao Tse-tung's Communist Manifesto. Following his professor's instructions to use original source material, this young man discovered that he, too, was on the government's watch list.Think of the chilling effect on free speech and academic freedom when a government agent shows up at your home--after you request a book from the library."

And now, back to planet earth as...

Federal agents' visit was a hoax: 12/ 24/ 2005

NEW BEDFORD -- "The UMass Dartmouth student who claimed to have been visited by Homeland Security agents over his request for "The Little Red Book" by Mao Zedong has admitted to making up the entire story. The 22-year-old student tearfully admitted he made the story up to his history professor, Dr. Brian Glyn Williams, and his parents, after being confronted with the inconsistencies in his account."

And, think of the chilling effect a United States Senator can bestow upon a clueless media and an even clueless public when he spouts nonsense without awaiting word on whether or not every lame brained tale of woe he hears about is true. A Kos-Kid-Type dreams something up and the loons march to the cliff. Priceless.

Aussie Arrested For Sending "Hate" Text Messages

"An Australian man has been charged over the circulation of mobile phone text messages inciting racial violence, the first arrest of its kind since race rioting hit Sydney beaches almost two weeks ago."

Am patiently awaiting response to an email I sent to the Sydney PD last week, in which I inquired as to what "race" they were referring to. Seems that asking the moslems to behave in anything resembling a civilized manner is considered racist by the authorities down under, and as anyone who's ever been to the beach at Cronulla can avow, it's long past the time something was done to educate these FOPP's (Followers Of the Pedophile Prophet) as to how to conduct themselves when away from their homes or other filthy places.

Wearing a skimpy bikini? Sorry, but they'll surround your beach blanket and literally kick sand on you until you either cover-up or leave. Bring along a ham sandwich for a snack? No way. They'll rip the food from your very hands and toss it into the ocean because it offends their "culture". It all began when the friendly Aussies decided to welcome rather than shun the FOPP's, because the worst thing one can do is allow these barbarians any leeway, as they take it as a sign of weakness and begin instituting their rules each and every chance they get.

I'm not conjuring a rant to incite violence but when someone takes a swing at me I swing back, and it's reached such an unfortunate state of affairs that the only way to protect oneself in Australia is to do away with the defensive posturing in favor of an offense. But make it a legal offense, guys, or they win because the press is going to scream racism any chance they get and you're back to square one when confronting these smug monstrosities masquerading as human beings. Yes, they're animals, but no, you cannot treat them as such without coming out on the short end of the legal stick. I've had more than my share of run-ins with FOPP's the world over and feel for you, but you let your government disarm you and even worse, welcomed surrenduring the right to protect yourselves. This is what happens when politicians convince their contituencies to become sheep.

The road back will be a long and arduous one, but take my word for it, you must first stop your liberal masters from doing more harm because Australasia will soon become Australislam if you do not. History has proven time and again that these thugs only stop when people of good will rise up to meet the challenge and drive them back. Fire the ministers that have brought you to this sorry state of affairs, and hire ones who believe in the rule of law over barbarism. I know it's so very tempting to become part of the mob mentality but they'll jail you for sending text messages fer chrissake, so use your intellect. Brains and culture are something moslems do not have, so you're a step above the enemy at the get-go and don't toss away your obvious advantages because they've made you half crazed by their 6th century atrocities.

And here's the part of the "Maryland/Virginia suburbs" that has US News all upset...

A moslem compound.

A radical moslem (there are un-radical ones?) enclave that has blood-brother ties to the wonderful folks who brought you 9-11, and it would be a travesty if we WEREN'T monitoring these goat fuckers 24/7.

The inside story is at Gates of Vienna: Jamaat ul-Fuqra in Virginia, Part 1 and I found the link over at Misha's place. Next thing you know, it'll be considered illegal to give Followers Of the Pedophile, or FOPS as we like to call them, breathalizer tests to determine if they've been celebrating a tad too much after a weekend of beheadings because taking a close look at their lung-leavings without a warrant is so very very wrong.

Hell...If the Times can reveal information detrimental to the safety of the country, then US News can too...

The latest flap will be all about more intrusions of "privacy", as intelligence organizations are monitoring mosques and the poor moslems that frequent them, for signs of radiation activity. Nation and World: EXCLUSIVE: Nuclear Monitoring of Muslims Done Without Search Warrants (12/22/05)

"In Washington, the sites monitored have included prominent mosques and office buildings in suburban Maryland and Virginia. One source close to the program said that participants "were tasked on a daily and nightly basis," and that FBI and Energy Department officials held regular meetings to update the monitoring list. "The targets were almost all U.S. citizens," says the source. "A lot of us thought it was questionable, but people who complained nearly lost their jobs. We were told it was perfectly legal."

The question of search warrants is controversial, however. To ensure accurate readings, in up to 15 percent of the cases the monitoring needed to take place on private property, sources say, such as on mosque parking lots and private driveways. Government officials familiar with the program insist it is legal; warrants are unneeded for monitoring from public property, they say, as well as from publicly accessible driveways and parking lots. "If a delivery man can access it, so can we," says one.

Georgetown University Professor David Cole, a constitutional law expert, disagrees. Surveillance of public spaces such as mosques or public businesses might well be allowable without a court order, he argues, but not private offices or homes: "They don't need a warrant to drive onto the property -- the issue isn't where they are, but whether they're using a tactic to intrude on privacy. It seems to me that they are, and that they would need a warrant or probable cause."

And there you have it in a nutshell. Searching for nuclear materials is an invasion of privacy, so says the moonbat with a law degree. Is there any sane person on the entire planet that would agree with this nutjob?

I for one am feeling damned good about the diligence exerted to keep us safe, and cannot help but believe that the vast majority of Americans will as well. We're at war, and idiots like the absentminded professor from Georgetown would have us worry about rights being violated if a geiger counter picked up static from a mosque, because his interpretation of the living, breathing constitution grants imaginary rights to all who would do us harm. War is an all-out force on force situation, and the old saw of an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure is never so appropriate.

And reasonable. Monitor the fuckers, trace the calls back to the their homelands from hell, and at the sound of one little click where there should not be one, Allah-House-Go-Boom. Courtesy of the people you murdered 4 years ago.

"Intrude on privacy" my ass. These molestors of all that is good gave up any right to privacy when they took us on, because that's what war means. The enemy has the right to surrender or die.


Friday, December 23, 2005


Having a good laugh at the "and later died" tactics used to inflate casualty figures whenever a moonbat feels they're far too low, such as the nonsense spewing from the ANGRY LEFT concerning the aftermath of hurricane Katrina.

"Deaths connected to..." or "Deaths otherwise not connected to but as a result of..." including one of my very favorites, "Deaths that will not be recorded for years to come..."

Now I know that the loons were counting on embryonic stem cell research to help them in their quest for eternal life, so ANY demise is uncalled for because golly gee, we're on the brink of immortality, but...and this might come as a shock...we are all of us going to die one day.

Using their wacky math coupled with direct insults to the laws of nature, I can therefore definitively say that all people who were adults during the onslaught of the Spanish Flu that came on the heels of WW I, are now deceased. This then leads me to conclude that the unsanitary atmosphere created by the appalling conditions following the European war aided and abetted the influenza that in fact caused the deaths of 2 billion people the world over.

2 billion. Then we take into account the casualties from WW II, and it is safe to say that another 2 billion people have died since 1940, so that brings the staggering death toll to FOUR BILLION.

All because the world forgot the warnings of Julius Caesar to keep a close eye on the Germans.

And in going back TWO THOUSAND and THIRTY years ago, to the days when Caesar was cautioning the world about the voracious appetite of the unruly Hun, we find that untold BILLIONS have perished since that point in time.

And, if we add the depravities inflicted upon the world by the Russians since the early 1900's, we're absolutely, positively, beyond a shadow of a doubt certain that totalitarian governments are responsible for close to if not exceeding a TRILLION deaths.

When will the madness end?

Bin Laden's Niece...

" aspiring New York-based musician who told the magazine that her family ties to the al Qaeda leader suspected of masterminding the September 11, 2001 attacks have prompted death threats and sent her into a bout of depression."

There are aspiring musician/models without severe cases of depression? In New York frickin City?

But the real news is the fact that, as far as I know, the loons responsible for the one travesty after another they've come to call the WTC Memorial, have not asked her to break a bottle of bubbly at the grand opening. Don't be giving them ideas?

Good point.

Better Read Than Ted

Yesterday's Boston Globe featured an op-ed by Sen. Ted Kennedy* in which he huffs and puffs about jackbooted government thugs:

"Just this past week there were public reports that a college student in Massachusetts had two government agents show up at his house because he had gone to the library and asked for the official Chinese version of Mao Tse-tung's Communist Manifesto.

Think of the chilling effect on free speech and academic freedom when a government agent shows up at your home--after you request a book from the library."

First of all, "The Communist Manifesto" was written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in 1848, not by Mao, who wasn't born until 1893. More important, this story appears to be a hoax. Here's the American Library Association's statement:

Click the headline to be whisked away to the fantasyland otherwise known as Teddyville (as seen through the eyes of Best of the Web) and learn more about "chilling effects".

Although certainly nothing remotely as chilling as poor Mary Jo must have felt after he swam away, leaving her to drown.

You Know They've Got Nothing...

...When they continue to misrepresent the facts...

Alito Defended Ordering Domestic Wiretaps WASHINGTON (AP) -

"Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito defended the right of government officials to order domestic wiretaps for national security when he worked at the Reagan Justice Department, an echo of President Bush's rationale for spying on U.S. residents in the war on terror. Then an..."

Judge Alito did no such thing.

"The question Judge Alito addressed in the 1984 memorandum was whether lawsuits for money damages against government officials were the proper remedy for illegal wiretaps. The Supreme Court agreed with him 5-2 that they were not."

The AP is having a bad month, year, decade, and millenium, but that'd never stop such a lunatic fringe rag that continues to pose as a mainstream news medium. And it isn't amazing that they could be so consistently wrong, for misrepresentation is all they have to work with. Keep hammering away with false accusations and perhaps people will get and stay confused long enough for their smear campaign to work.

The Alito hearings will be fun, don't you think? Personally, I love it when Democrats prove how incredibly dumb they are and can't wait to see old Sam clean their clocks when they once again try and go up against someone who actually knows something about the law and the Constitution.

*Sputter*, But, You Mean To Tell Me We Don't Get To Have Dead-Baby Farms?

Koreans dash hopes of every living liberal on the planet by admitting they announced bogus stem cell results...

"A team of independent investigators at Seoul National University has determined that at least nine of 11 human embryonic stem cell colonies whose creation was announced amid great fanfare earlier this year were fakes, deeply undermining the credibility of what had appeared to be some of the most spectacular biomedical achievements of the past two years.
The stem cell colonies, created by the university's star researcher, Hwang Woo Suk, had been among the first grown from cloned human embryos and had been said to be exact genetic matches to 11 patients who might benefit from the cells, which have the capacity to repair damaged tissues."

Drat and double drat. Now the loons will have to find some other disgusting venture to worship at the altar of. And I can only imagine Teddy Kennedy's shock at hearing the news that the embryonic liver they'd been working on didn't quite pan out, and all these years of pushing abortion rights were a waste of his valuable time. That's okay though, soon enough some other charletan will have them convinced of other reasons to harvest dead babies, so look for headlines featuring the "fact" that global warming is really caused by too few abortions being performed in Manhattan's Chinatown.

Son Of Colts Coach Tony Dungy Kills Self...

"The whole family is good people. You know Tony, how he raised a family," Edwards said from Jets training camp in Hempstead, N.Y. "A tragedy. I know the prayers of the National Football League go out to him and his family."

The incredibly poor English aside (and what else would one expect from a Jets coach), it is a rather ludicrous thing to suggest that a man raised his family well the day after one of them commits suicide. There was something very unwell with that young man, and all we hear from the brainless football folks is how wonderful a father Tony Dungy was, with the emphasis of course on was. Not that any father should take the lions share of responsibility for such an act, but in the name of all that's sane do none of these idiots see the irony?

Great kid, great Dad, great family. Oh, and there's the little thing called suicide but what the hell, let's not ruin a chance for a group hug by spoiling it with the facts.

But what if these puppies are willing to do puppy jobs that American puppies won't...

"The Border Puppy Task Force -- a group of 18 animal control and health agencies and animal protection groups -- said Tuesday that a two-week operation at San Diego's two border crossings confirmed what it long suspected: Mexico is a breeding ground for unscrupulous puppy peddlers."

Yes that's right folks. We can't keep the Mexicans out but we can make damned sure that none 'a them evil puppies invade our borders. And listen to this moonbat's reason for being horrified by the illegal puppy:

"It's a profit-driven practice, it's a disturbing practice," said Capt. Aaron Reyes, director of operations at the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority in Los Angeles County."

Yikes! A profit-driven practice! Don't these Mexican puppieteers know that all puppies are given away freely in the US by non-profit-driven puppy lovers?

Gotta love moonbats and asshats.

Calling All Moonbats

Because I really need some help on this one from the Boston Herald...

"...hospitals will no longer be allowed to give free infant formula to mothers taking new babies home. Regulators want to promote breast-feeding, even if it means making Massachusetts the first state to ban the popular freebie."

So women should be allowed to decide whether or not to kill their babies before they're born, but shouldn't be allowed to decide what to feed them after they are born?


And "regulators" of what?

"The regulations — adopted yesterday by the state Public Health Council — also require hospitals to have lactation consultants available to all new mothers."

But don't these dingbats know that it'll hurt the poor women? The loss of the free formula is enough, but who do you think is going to pay for these "lactation consultants"?

Not the poor mothers, you say, but the taxpayers? Ah, now THAT sounds more like the way liberals fix a problem they created to begin with.

Moonbat Math

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - "President George W. Bush ranks as the least popular and most bellicose of the last ten U.S. presidents, according to a new survey.

Only nine percent of the 662 people polled picked Bush as their favorite among the last 10 presidents. John F. Kennedy topped that part of the survey, with 26 percent, closely followed by Bill Clinton (25 percent) and Ronald Reagan (23 percent)."

So let's see now; Kennedy, Willy, and Reagan totalled 74%, so that means the remaining 7 Presidents equalled 3.71% apiece on average. Yet Bush received 9% and is one the least popular? 74 plus 9 equals 83...if you're a liberal try to follow and I promise to go the remaining 5 Presidents actually shared 17% of the total, or around 3%.

That means, of course, that Gworge W. Bush was at least...still with me, least the 5th MOST popular, and perhaps even the 4th. Couple that with the fact that these must have been old lefties that were polled...Kennedy is not even a memory to the kids.. and to venture that sane Americans as a whole would put Clinton over Reagan is mindboggling and totally out of sync with reality. Unless it's a liberals version of reality.

Sweet mother of pearl but these loons are dense.

And Chairman Ann Has Her Take On The Matter As Was To Be Expected...

"...Which brings me to this week's scandal about No Such Agency spying on "Americans." I have difficulty ginning up much interest in this story inasmuch as I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East, and sending liberals to Guantanamo.

But if we must engage in a national debate on half-measures: After 9/11, any president who was not spying on people calling phone numbers associated with terrorists should be impeached for being an inept commander in chief. With a huge gaping hole in lower Manhattan, I'm not sure why we have to keep reminding people, but we are at war. (Perhaps it's because of the media blackout on images of the 9/11 attack. We're not allowed to see those because seeing planes plowing into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon might make us feel angry and jingoistic.)

Among the things that war entails are: killing people (sometimes innocent), destroying buildings (sometimes innocent) and spying on people (sometimes innocent). That is why war is a bad thing.

But once a war starts, it is going to be finished one way or another, and I have a preference for it coming out one way rather than the other."

Ah, but silly, silly Ann; we didn't beg the UN for help in NEGOTIATING with the terrorists, as Willy or Mr. Peanut would have done. Wait a second. Isn't that what McCain is doing? Pushing through a treaty with terrorists the world over? Kill us and we'll still be nice to you? Free cotton candy if you promise not to do it no more and even if you do we'll remain all giggles and grins?

Give Ann's rant a look see if you'd be so kind, but wanna know the bottom line here?

They haven't hit us again. George W. Bush did what was necessary to protect us, and so far it's worked just fine thank you. When Willy was in charge the bad guys let the dust settle then hit us even harder.

Thursdays Gawk At The Latest Nonsense Spewing From The ACLU

ACLU Shocked at Bush Use of National Security Agency for Domestic Spying

Well, the ACLU isn't really shocked, but is quite happy to hop aboard the flubdubbery created by the seditious NY Times. Here's how it works; liberals love big government as long as they control the reins. Back when Slick Willy was telling us that we'd be losing certain rights in order to remain safe and sane and so secure, he was heralded as a tough leader who was taking the bull by the horns. Part of the Clinton platform was to do the same things that the present administration has implimented, but Willy's crew were enough in love with themselves to brag about it. Because, you see, the Dems know that power in their hands in power wisely employed for they happen to be so very much smarter than the rest of us. If Clinton had given the okay for wiretaps between US nationals and foreign thugs the same NY Times would be kissing his ass for doing the right thing.

It's all a matter of politics as usual, and no one should be shocked or dismayed that a Republican President is feeling heat from the loony left. The mainstream media leans towards the left and thats why it seems that Bush is doing a great many things untowards. The vast, vast majority of todays prominent newspeople are former Democratic activists who will disagree with ANYTHING the White House does, but when a Democrat is in office they remain silent.

Enter blogdom, and the playing field becomes far more level. We're reminded of what previous Presidents have done to protect the country, or, in the case of Blowjob Bill, what previous Presidents DIDN'T do. Jimmy Carter sat frozen in the Oval Office as events escalated past his level of understanding, and Bill Clinton occupied the same seat with a smile on his face because when things got out of control he either hid from a bearer of ill tidings, or prowled the halls looking for oral sex. Neither man was a Commander in Chief. Neither was capable of executing the necessary programs to wage what would become the war against Islam. Carter let the fanatics do as they pleased, and Clinton let them, among other things, try blowing up the WTC from the parking garage without striking back, when a forceful reaction would have stalled a great many of these terrorists dead in their tracks.

Reagan inherited Carters mess as Bush did Clintons. Unfinished work that needed a man in charge as opposed to a frightened fencesitter. But make no mistake here...Clinton would have gleefully allowed wiretaps if he felt them to be necessary. And the ACLU wouldn't have made anywhere near the fuss because it would have been from one of their own kind.

"Thug" is now a racist word as well..

As well as pretty much anything derogatory one might say about any minority member and/or group. Pretty soon the only description politically correct enough to employ when venting displeasure over a black or "latino" will be not-so- honey-buns.

December 22, 2005 -- "In the war of words over the ongoing transit strike, Mayor Bloomberg's use of the word "thuggish" to describe the actions of union chiefs has whipped up a firestorm of controversy.

African American leaders like the Rev. Al Sharpton and City Councilman Charles Barron have taken offense at Bloomberg's use of the word during a press briefing Tuesday, while a mayoral spokesperson accused the leaders of playing the race card."

They ARE thugs. And assholes too. I am all for the working man but their demands are ludicrous and their behavior outlandish. I realize that it makes me a bad conservative to cheer the average joe on when he confronts the man over working conditions or salary, but when I see the money politicians and movie "stars" and captains of industry make it pisses me off and I don't care if the wages and benefits are generous when it comes to city workers. But these city workers are being far too greedy and the leadership hides behind it's minority status and can say anything they want to make a point...then THAT pisses me off as well.

And we all know what a jerkwad racist Rev. Al is, so I won't go there.

Relatively new Dell I'm using. 7 months old, Pentium 4, 3.2 gig, a gig of memory and it has simply gone nearly dead on me. Taking over a minute just to type this so I'll be around if and when I figure out whats wrong.

In auditioning for the role of Moe in the upcoming 3 Stooges Movie...

"Yes I have been beaten, everywhere on my body. The marks are still there," Saddam told the court, without saying who had allegedly beaten him. "And I'm not complaining about the Americans because I can poke their eyes with my own hands."

If It's 4 Days 'Till Christmas...

Then it must be time for talking baseball!

The Yankees signed the biggest free agent available when the agreed to a 4 year deal with Johnny Damon, so of course that means Lil Mikey Lupica had something incredibly stupid so say about it. Lil Mikey, Mr. Moonbat himself, was just yesterday whining that the Yanks better do something fast if they wanted to improve the ballclub, so of course he doesn't like the fact that they DID do something, because moonbats are first and foremost whingy contrarians.

"The story here, in bold type, is that despite all the talk about saving money and getting younger, it was business as usual last night for the Yankees when they decided to pay Damon $52 million to play baseball for them over the next four years."

Damon drops his demands for a 7 year contract and they pay him what the leftfielder is making, the leftfielder he is younger than, and Lupica still finds enough bitching-room to produce yet another one of his about-face columns that contradict what he has previously been, well, bitching about.

And suddenly 32 is too old for a ballplayer simply because the Yankees signed him. 32. The time in an outfielder's life when he's considered in his prime unless a midget moonbat masquerading as a sports writer wants to moan about it.

Pajamas Media: The Worst Gets Worser

Snoop Dogg or Snoopgate?

Pajamas Media in Los Angeles

Tuesday, December 20, 2005
"The blogosphere is alive with the sound of clicking keyboards over Jonathan Alter's Newsweek column, alleging that President Bush was "so desperate to kill The New York Times' eavesdropping story, he summoned the paper's editor and publisher to the Oval Office. But it wasn't just out of concern about national security." Alter goes on to use the "d-word," referring to the President."

Snoop Dogg or Snoopgate? What in the name of all hells does that mean? Who writes these headlines anyway? And please don't tell me it's one of the Scintillating-70. I mean, better late than never...the PJ's were featuring liberals-on-Mars while the rest of blogdom was foaming at the keyboard over this story...but if you're going to come to the party late at least be dressed for the occasion.

Wile. E. Coyote And The Dems...

"For the better part of ten years I had the privilege of working closely with Wile's (Coyote) creator Chuck Jones and in fact produced and co-wrote Chuck's final Roadrunner cartoon in 1994, so I would humbly offer that I am a fair authority on said erstwhile coyote.

Having spoken with Chuck about Wile more times than I can count, I can say with great conviction that your suggestion that the Murtha, Dean, Kerry, Boxer et al, position with regards to the GWOT and the war in Iraq, is appropriately analogous to Wile and to his inumerable [sic], ill-considered and near fatally-flawed plans to catch the Roadrunner--a good many of which resulted in him falling off of a cliff."

Indeed. And the single biggest problem we conservatives have is the absence of an Acme-Liberal-Politician-Destructo-Widget.

And does this sound familiar?

"Throughout Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote's careers in over two dozen Warner Bros. cartoons chronicling the duo's encounters, their classic chase formula has never lost its tension. The luckless Wile E. comes up with increasingly elaborate and seemingly foolproof schemes to snag Road Runner who, oblivious to the danger, always eludes the pathetic
coyote's painstaking plans."

Increasingly elaborate and seemingly foolproof schemes. Hmm. Like calling for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq just to garner more liberal press support, then voting against your own proposal a day later?

Tookies Funeral Draws Out The Vermin...

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Supporters of Stanley Tookie Williams, including civil rights leaders and masked gang members, gathered at a church in South Los Angeles on Monday to pay tribute to a convicted killer whose execution last week prompted renewed debate about capital punishment."

The list of cretins from the above story doesn't include these other fine upstanding citizens from an article in a local newsrag...

"...documentary filmmaker Jonathan Stack and speeches by motivational guru Tony Robbins and actor Jamie Foxx, who portrayed Williams in the TV movie "Redemption: The Stanley Tookie Williams Story."

Amazing that those were the only liberal crybabies at Dead-Tookie's going away party, but we suspect others kept a low profile, or may indeed have been masked as some of the Crips gang members were.

Tony Robbins is a jerkwad extraordinairre but I somehow expected more from Jamie Foxx. Good know to know he was there and that makes one less bad actor I ever have to pay cash money to watch stumble through a lousy performance. "Redemption". Killing people in cold blood and never once expressing remorse is a liberals idea of redemption because he had some childrens books ghostwritten for him when it looked like Kalifornia was actually going to make a lesson of sorry, murdering ass. Seriously, the whole Tookie deal was so exhilarating it makes me sad to think that we can't dig the lowlife son of a bitch up and whack him all over again.

How It All Began...

A primer on what the major religions have had to say about creation:


Before the earth (Midgard) was created there was the world of Muspell, a fiery place ruled by Surt, a giant dude with a giant sword. There was this other place called Niflheim and it was just one big glacier. Well, both worlds collided and from the steam there emerged a giant cow who licked things and changed them into other things and from these other things cameth the earth. One day the giant cow and the giant dude noticed that people were walking around, and thought to themselves, how frickin' cool is THIS.


There was this gigunda god called Ahura Mazda, and no, he didn't make cars, he made the earth. The first animal was a beautiful white bull but an evil demon ate the bull and from the bulls seed all sorts of interesting things began to grow. People were one of these things, but the evil demon was still around and ate their children but they went and hid and had more children, and many theologists believe that the first kids were liberals and that's why the demon ate them but this has never really been proven.

Born in Babylonia, Moved To Arizonia

The god of fresh water ran into the god of salt water, and pow, lotsa gods began springing up. Trouble was, the younger gods make one helluva racket and neither the water god nor the salt god could get any sleep so the salt water god killed alla the younger gods and the fresh water god was SO pissed he created monsters to guard any new gods that happened to stop by. Well, then. Lots of infighting and god wars made the gods and the monsters pretty pooped out, so they created man to do the dirty work like farming, and fishing and running for office as a Democrat.

Chariots Of The Gods Or Just Plain Old Egyptians?

Now the Egyptians had so many creation myths nobody even knows how many there were, but one day this god willed himself into being, and finding he had no place to stand, created the earth. He spat out a sun, chundered up a daughter, and bade them to sort all this stuff out and get back to him. They worked really really hard and when the father god saw all they had done he started to cry, and from his tears sprang forth mankind. Later on he had to relive himself, and from this stream sprang forth leftists.

The Aztec Two-Step

The earth mother was this gal so into snakes that she dressed like one, and all was cool until one day she was knocked up by an obsidian knife. From this copulation there sprang the goddess of the moon and 400 sons she sent to the sky to become stars. She stayed far far away from obsidian knives, but one day a feather fell from the sky and, yep, the feather knocked her up too. This time around, a giant sword-wielding full armor...comes out and he is really really ticked off that he's not an only child so he kills the goddess of the moon, but not to make mommy super-dee-duper pissed, he hurls the decapitated head as high into the sky as he can and it becomes the moon. The rest of her is one big mess and he doesn't want mom to see the carnage, so he buries it and there it stayed underground until Howard Dean sprang forth to run for the Presidency.

China: Gods That Need To Be Worshipped, Then Worshipped AGAIN an Hour Or So Later...

There was this frickin' huge ass cosmic egg that took scazillions of years to hatch, but when it did, the first being emerged, and the leftover yolk became the earth. Now, this wasn't all that steady a place to stand...being an icky old yolk and all... so the dude hadda stand around in one place for a while holding up the sky and making sure the yolk didn't just fall apart, and as he stood there he got a wicked case of the fleas and when he finally died the fleas turned into humans. Some of these flea-people STAYED more like fleas than people and so the Kennedy family name was born.

Made In Japan

The gods got lonely as all gods get lonely when all they have to play with are other gods, so they created people. They figured that a man and a woman would be so cool because then they wouldn't have to strain themselves making any MORE people because the people could make each other. Well, lotsa problems arose as every time they tried to marry these people to one another the female would speak first and that wouldn't do so they got pissed and made more gods instead of people until the people finallygot the marriage ceremony down pat where the woman would STFU until spoken to. Now remember, this was long, long before Nancy Pelosi so give the dudes a break. How could they EVER expect what was to come...

Hindu: Check Out The Broads With All Them Hands...

One day the gods noticed that holy shit, this one being they had created was growing so large he threatened to engulf the entire earth...and no, this wasn't Michael Moore but you were the gods had to sacrifice the dude. Problem was, the parts took on a life all their own and from his genitals sprang Shiva the Destroyer who wastes the earth to cinders every 4 and a half billion years or so, and we're half the frig way there since the last extinction so vote Republican while you can.

The Greeks! Yay Hercules!

Okay, so there was the earth mother, Gaia. Like all broads she got super cold all the time so she created Uranus, the sky, to protect her frozened little feetsies. And not only was Uranus warm he was damned fertile, and word has it the dude was like huge ya know, and from this union sprang all kinds of gods and monsters, and Titans, until finally Zeus came along and was sick of seeing old mom screwing the neighborhood to beat the band and took the whole gig over for himself. The Titans just wouldn't settle down though, so Zeus dug this frickin' huge ass hole in the ground and tossed them in. Problem is, the hole turned out to be where the New Orleans levees were, so when they melted away the Titans jumped out, free at last to tell the media how the whole thing was the Presidents fault, but to the President credit, he didn't do like Zeus and just sent them off to Congress where there were plenty of people with experience in dealing with horrible bickering monsters.

Judeo-Christian-Islam...The Latest And Most Fought Over...

Within Genesis there are two tales of how god made it all, sort of like - well then, would you believe this? God says let there be light, works his butt off for 6 days then clocks out for a much needed rest. In the second version, god makes Adam but after a time Adam gets lonely so god sneaks up on him while he's sleeping and steals a rib so's he can make Eve. And we ALL know how that worked out. The devil remembers how much trouble the Japanese had with the gals not listening to their masters, and he's pissed that god has these new toys to play with and isn't even calling him anymores, so he entices her into eating god's favorite apples and that's all she wrote. They left the Garden of Eden, had lotsa kids that coupled with one another and they had lotsa other kids. Some were obviously retarded due to all of this inbreeding and they became the line that begat liberals.

Great stories, all, but come on now, not a one of them even figured out that some of the lights in the sky were other planets and not stars, or that the earth revolved aroound the sun, or that the earth couldn't have 4 corners because it is a sphere, and tons more stuff, but the old timers didn't know squat about how the universe really worked. Fast forward to today, and we can't give the same benefit of the doubt to the total asshats who should know better. Well, Darwin never said that EVERYONE hadda evolve.

Unintelligent design gets kicked square in the genes...

First of all lets dispense with the bullshit before it begins. I'm a conservative Republican, raised Roman Catholic and a former career Marine. But what I am not is a blithering idiot, and the intelligent design fiasco has pissed me off for decades.

It is not science, does not propose we accept ALL mythologies as gospel, and is a not so veiled attempt at teaching creationism. But who's creationism? Why, the Judeo/Islam/Christian version, of course because over 98% of intelligent designers come from one of the above persuasions and want IT featured over the hundreds of other religious/mythological explanations of how the world began.

Science does not know how the world began, but has made significant strides in figuring it all out. Trial and error, and when errors ARE found, they are found by scientists and not preachers. Science is a self-healing discipline that simply loves proving old ideas wrong, and scientists are the first to admit when a better explanation comes along.

And even the judge in this case errs in describing Darwins work, and that's because most people do as they have been conditioned by all of the nonsense. The Theory of Evolution is no longer a theory and has not been for quite some time as it has been accepted as fact. Accepted by every mainstream scientist the world over. The Theory of Natural Selection remains a hotly debated subject, but most scientists feel it remains the best explanation to describe the evolutionary process. No educated person of good will disputes Darwin's evolutionary proposals, put it in simple terms it's the reason we get different flu shots every year...the little bastards evolve...but the very same people are still attempting to determine if the natural selection process is the key, or one of the keys to explaning how evolution works.

And just this morning, from the Federal court in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Judge John Jones III handed down his ruling against the teaching of Intelligent Design:

"The proper application of both the endorsement and Lemon tests to the facts of this case makes it abundantly clear that the Board’s ID Policy violates the Establishment Clause. In making this determination, we have addressed the seminal question of whether ID is science. We have concluded that it is not, and moreover that ID cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents.
Both Defendants and many of the leading proponents of ID make a bedrock assumption which is utterly false. Their presupposition is that evolutionary theory is antithetical to a belief in the existence of a supreme being and to religion in general. Repeatedly in this trial, Plaintiffs’ scientific experts testified that the theory of evolution represents good science, is overwhelmingly accepted by the scientific community, and that it in no way conflicts with, nor does it deny, the existence of a divine creator.
To be sure, Darwin’s theory of evolution is imperfect. However, the fact that a scientific theory cannot yet render an explanation on every point should not be used as a pretext to thrust an untestable alternative hypothesis grounded in religion into the science classroom or to misrepresent well-established scientific propositions.
The citizens of the Dover area were poorly served by the members of the Board who voted for the ID Policy. It is ironic that several of these individuals, who so staunchly and proudly touted their religious convictions in public, would time and again lie to cover their tracks and disguise the real purpose behind the ID Policy.
With that said, we do not question that many of the leading advocates of ID have bona fide and deeply held beliefs which drive their scholarly endeavors. Nor do we controvert that ID should continue to be studied, debated, and discussed. As stated, our conclusion today is that it is unconstitutional to teach ID as an alternative to evolution in a public school science classroom.
Those who disagree with our holding will likely mark it as the product of an activist judge. If so, they will have erred as this is manifestly not an activist Court. Rather, this case came to us as the result of the activism of an ill-informed faction on a school board, aided by a national public interest law firm eager to find a constitutional test case on ID, who in combination drove the Board to adopt an imprudent and ultimately unconstitutional policy. The breathtaking inanity of the Board’s decision is evident when considered against the factual backdrop which has now been fully revealed through this trial. The students, parents, and teachers of the Dover Area School District deserved better than to be dragged into this legal maelstrom, with its resulting utter waste of monetary and personal resources.
To preserve the separation of church and state mandated by the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, and Art. I, § 3 of the Pennsylvania Constitution, we will enter an order permanently enjoining Defendants from maintaining the ID Policy in any school within the Dover Area School District, from requiring teachers to denigrate or disparage the scientific theory of evolution, and from requiring teachers to refer to a religious, alternative theory known as ID. We will also issue a declaratory judgment that Plaintiffs’ rights under the Constitutions of the United States and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have been violated by Defendants’ actions.
Defendants’ actions in violation of Plaintiffs’ civil rights as guaranteed to them by the Constitution of the United States and 42 U.S.C. § 1983 subject Defendants to liability with respect to injunctive and declaratory relief, but also for nominal damages and the reasonable value of Plaintiffs’ attorneys’ services and costs incurred in vindicating Plaintiffs’ constitutional rights."
