Get Real

Associated Press Writer, NEW YORK
A gay police officer has filed a discrimination suit against the city and the New York Police Department, saying he was threatened with violence, called vulgar names and treated unfairly by supervisors because of his sexuality.
The poor thing. How will he be able to function ever again? His feelngs must be crushed. His emotions devastated. He even has a lawyer now, George D. Rosenbaum, who says:
The hell he's gone through is heart wrenching.
Gad, what crap. When stuff like this is headline material, you know we're reaching the "zero" in our final countdown.

John Edwards Tries Truth

John Edwards dares to tell the truth when asked what to do about "inner-city kids partaking in violence":
“We cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem. And the idea that we can keep incarcerating and keep incarcerating — pretty soon we’re not going to have a young African-American male population in America. They’re all going to be in prison or dead. One of the two.
Well, there goes his share of the black vote. One thing African Americans cannot tolerate is the truth. Jesse Jackson and The Rev. Sharpton - Two of America's foremost race-baiting African Americans - are going to go predictably ballistic.

I can hear it now:

It's all whitey's fault, it's always been whitey's fault, and it will always be whitey's fault. Now give us our $5,000 dollars per kid that Hillary suggested.

Mind you, I said "African Americans". Americans who just happen to be black are not part of the problem.

So Long Fred

One of my most favorite authors is bailing. Fred over at Fred On Everything is pulling the plug, maybe permanently. Says Fred:
People write columns in the (faint) hope of changing things. No, a web site will not alter the majestic course of the planets in their orbits. It was once possible, however, to believe that enough people hollering in the electronic town hall that is the web might push things in a desired direction. In the past, this has worked—not cleanly, nor quickly, nor quite as the senior-civics texts said. But it has sort of worked.

Now it doesn’t. Today the United States is politically and socially constipated. Nothing moves, or at least not in a desirable direction. Crooks, frauds, revivalists, the over-empowered under-brained, believers and mouth-breathers and unabashed lunatics—all of these have so firmly gummed up the gears that improvement founders. Someone seems to have poured glue into the political kaleidoscope. Little point exists in curmudgeing at the bastards.
Well, he's right. Nothing is going to change where we're headed, so yelling about it and getting the attention of the jack-booters is not only a waste of time, but dangerous.

I fully agree with Fred.

Now, where did I put that parachute?

No Surprise Here

A warning, they call it:
A major homebuilder warned this morning of the growing problem of "surplus inventory" as another month of weak sales of new homes left the inventory of unsold new homes at 529,000, and the total number of homes for sale in America at a staggering 5.1 million.
What did they expect? All those bastards who have been plundering America?

The cost of new homes go through the roof(no pun intended)and the money boys offer ARM's which now have interest rates skyrocketing, and 5.1 million homebuyers want out.

Add to that the reality that so many of America's good-paying jobs have vanished overseas, that Washington's insane spending spree is killing the purchasing power of the dollar and that the tax base is shrinking due to the fact that millions of illegals have taken millions of American jobs and do not pay the taxes those jobs once provided.

And yet, they just keep on, pillaging and plundering . I'm beginning to believe those responsible here in America will just squeeze the last possible drop out of us and our country before they bail to some European, Middle Eastern or South American haven somewhere, to join their fellow thieves and cretins who have recently bailed, or live overseas anyway.

That may make it much harder for us to chase them down and string them up when the time comes.

We Americans are in for a rough ride, and those responsible will most likely never see a instant's worth of stress or regret from the things they have done to destroy us and our nation.

But... It's what we deserve for allowing ourselves and our children to be dumbed down to the point we see nothing, we hear nothing, and ultimately... Do nothing.

Go watch the game(any game), you idiots out there, it's all you're going to have left.

What Good Are They?

Word was that Bin Laden was back in Tora Bora, so:
For three days and nights — between Aug. 14 and 16 — U.S. and Afghanistan forces pounded the mountain caves in Tora Bora, the same caves where Osama Bin Laden had hidden out and then fled in late 2001 after U.S. forces drove al Qaeda out of Afghanistan cities. Ultimately, however, U.S. forces failed to find Bin Laden or his deputy, Ayman al Zawahiri, even though their attacks left dozens of al Qaeda and Taliban dead.
For almost six years our intelligence community sits around, intercepting everybodys radio messages, reading everybodys e-mails, listening to everybodys phone calls, waiting for Bin Laden to expose himself, and then they miss him again.

What about our multi-billion dollar internationally operating spy agency, the CIA? Don't they have a few trained operatives that could just sneak into Pakistan and take this creep out?

If they don't - or can't - What the hell good are they? Why are we spending all that money on them? So they can just sit on their asses by the thousands in their great big expensive building and stare at computer screens? And network? And play online games?

Great deal for them - no results required - but a really bad deal for the rest of us.

Maybe - for just a fraction of the cost - we could hire out the KGB to get the job done, and then throw these computer dandies out into the street, which is where highly paid spies are supposed to be in the first place.

Wednesday, September 26, 2007


I just watched President Bush slam the democrats for wanting to spend money on some medical coverage for children.

He babbled on about how it would raise taxes on the American working people and would cost "twenty or thirty billion dollars".

At the the same time, his flunky Gen. Gates asked for two hundred billion dollars to keep his war, his personally owned debacle, going for another year.

This cretin is unbelievable. The cost of his war in Iraq is approaching a trillion dollars. What must we do to rid ourselves of this mad lunatic and extricate ourselves and our nation from this insane man's cockamamie "war on terror"?

I am hopeful that we never elect a born-again lunatic to the office of president again, that this unmitigated disaster of a president has been lesson enough, even for the fundies and thumpers that seem to go totally stupid when somebody claims to be one of them.
But Homer, He's a God-fearing man... he said so himself... all those horrible things they are saying about him must be untrue!
No they're not, Edna.

It's highly discouraging to realize that so many Americans have been so stupid for so long, and frightening beyond comprehension to realize that most of them haven't learned a thing, and may just vote another raving - but smooth talking - and supposedly God-fearing lunatic into office next time.

There's no place left for us to go, to try again, to start over. The American continent was the last place to create a new nation, to build a decent future, a place with freedom of religion, and just as importantly, freedom from religion. Unfortunately, religion has gained a death grip on this nation and is leading it down the path of oblivion. There will not be any God or gods coming to the rescue. This is our own stewpot, and welcome to it.

I would love to believe there is a Hell, because if there was, This forked-tongued snake-in-the-grass Bush would have a first-class ticket for a place of honor in the very bottommost feces-filled pit, right along side every treasonous son-of-a-bitch in Congress today.

But... they're going to get away with it. Too bad.

The Butcher Says He's A Baker Also

I just listened to Bush's speech to the United Nations. It was a frightening demonstration of a powerful warmonger talking to a bunch of fellow human rights violators and self-serving profiteers holding powerful national and international political positions

Listening to what he said one would think him one of the world's greatest humanitarians. But all you need to do is see what he has done to realize it's all words, all smoke and mirrors, designed to fool not the eye, but the mind.

He talked of how every human being has the right to work, yet he and his fellow conspirators have given away millions of American jobs and allowed millions of aliens to take jobs from Americans who need them.

He talked about creating farms in Africa to feed the hungry, but did not mention how American leaders sat on their butts while Whites in Africa were robbed of their farms and occupations by ignorant and uneducated blacks with their "government's" blessings, farms that had been feeding Africans, farms that were once prosperous enough to even export food.

He talked about open borders and security, two mutually exclusive concepts. But we all know about his stand on America's borders, so we know his claims about American security are all lies.

And... he said that all Americans were OUTRAGED over what was happening in Burma. Burma? Did the road wash out?

He talked of billions of American tax dollars spent in Africa trying to combat HIV/AIDS, but said nothing about trying to convince those dumb bastards to quit screwing everything that moves, the only known way not to get AIDS.

He talked of how America has fed so many millions of starving people in Africa. Come to think of it, most of the help he was bragging about was help he had sent to Africa. Maybe that's the type of help you concentrate on when when you have a black activist female as Secretary of State.

To me, it was the perfect picture of a warmongering profiteer talking worldly peace and love to a body of warmongering profiteers, all professional politicians, all liars and thieves, all of them screwing their own people and nations, and every last one of them out to bury America.

It would have been be hilarious if it wasn't so sad. It almost looked like a "Saturday Night Live" parody of himself.

$14,500 Chocolate Delight

The Fortress Sri Lanka, an award winning luxury resort in Galle has created the most expensive dessert in the world. Priced at $14,500. It's called "The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence", and is available on special request. The dessert’s inspiration comes from the resort’s logo of the "stilt fisherman".

A combination of a gold leaf Italian kasata, flavoured with Irish cream and served with a mango and pomegranate compote and a bubbly-based sabayon enlighten.

The finishing touch is the 80-carat aquamarine stone nestled on the handmade chocolate "Stilt Fisherman".
The "Stilt fisherman". Around the area where this luxury hangout for the filthy rich and jaded buy this delight is a community of fishermen who live in huts perched up on stilts, the kind you saw in National Geographic once, except that they still exist. Some idiot hotel employee named the world's most expensive dessert after some of the world's poorest and most disadvantaged people. Way to really rub it in.

I imagine an American equivalent would be some kind of chocolate concoction called something like "Sharecropper Cottonpicker", with a darky - handmade in dark chocolate of course - on top holding an 80 carat bloodstone for sweet little Miz Scarlett(modern version).

As one of the retired poor here in America, I am really curious as to who would buy such a thing... who would actually pay $14,500 for a damn dessert.

Not a response like corporate CEO, or oil magnate, or crooked politician, or OS developer... but a name and a photo.

As an old coot who has been trying to scrape up enough cash for a riding mower for over two years (try mowing an acre of weeds with a push mower), I would just like to see who buys such an insane bit of high-calorie bling... and the reason(s) behind the purchase.

I know it's along the lines of the $50,000 bottle of wine one can buy and drink up in many places around the world, but this useless bit of news about a $14,500 dessert rubs the salt in a bit deeper than normal.

How much production, work and effort effort is required... How many hundreds of hard-working serfs laboring away does it take to make enough money for some lecherous creep so he can buy his trophy bimbo a $14,500 dessert?

Find Your Candidate

Skip over to VAjoe and see who your candidate really is.

Give Them A Fiddle

Must be something in their water:
Canadians cheered Friday for their beloved loonie, reaching parity this week with the US greenback for the first time in 31 years, but consumers are not yet benefiting, and manufacturers are reeling.
The loonie, a sobriquet given to the Canadian dollar, worth a mere 62 US cents five years ago, reached parity with the US greenback in morning trading Thursday, amid soaring commodity prices and fears of a slumping US economy.
No way has the Canadian "loonie" gained strength against the dollar. the dollar is collapsing, and those idiot Canadians are cheering.

Consumers are not benefiting and manufacturers are reeling. You'd think they could take a clue from that. If our economy tanks, the Canadians will follow right along. But they must think being second in line down the toilet is something to cheer about.

More WND

Must be WND day here on the SS Gundeck...

They have another headline on "The Rise of Atheist America".
Why almost half of voters polled say they'd support a God-denier for president
It's one of Joes' "Whistleblower Magazine" specials, and it seems that Joe is certain that it's because there's so many God-haters out there.

But, as usual, Joe misses a very important point... Why did almost half of the voters in the poll say such a thing? Think it over... most likely at least 80% of those polled were religious people of one stripe or another, since most Americans, something like 90% of them, say they are religious, so why did they say they would prefer a "God-denier" for President?

BECAUSE, we have a God-fearing president right now this very minute, and he's been an unmitigated disaster.

Keep in mind that it was indeed George Bush, born-again something-or-other, who told the French president that the Iraqi war was a Gog-Magog thing.

That's scary.


I still read WND almost every day, although I now often wonder why.

For example, today they have a headline:
Did Noah's Flood Really Spark Global Warming?
Stuff like that just makes me turn the page.

Joe started off with some really good reporting, but now he's gone round the bend.

Old age catching up I suppose.

Not that it's a bad thing, I'm already old and went round the bend years ago. but I do't try to BS people like Joe does, I just bitch and gripe for the fun of it.

Hitchcock's "Birds" Revisited

Israeli fighter pilots scrambled warplanes on Friday after radar spotted a potential airborne enemy flying from Syria only to discover the culprits were migratory birds, army radio reported.
Israeli radar picked up the birds over the Syrian border but officers were unable to rule them out as enemy aircraft from the screen, the radio said.
I worked with radars of many kinds for a lot of years, air search, height-finders, fire control, deepspace trackers, even police radar units, and never once did any of the operators I knew mistake a bird for a warplane.

For starters, warplanes scoot along pretty fast, hundreds of MPH, while birds - migratory or not - plod along at a very leisurely 20/30 MPH. For most trained and proficient radar operators, a target screaming in at 30 MPH is not mistaken for a warplane.

If it were me, I would take those idiot "officers" out of the radar centers and put them to peeling potatoes, and get some trained and proficient personnel in there before they start another war because of a seagull or two.

But then again, it is the Israelis, and they never need much of an excuse to open fire, so for them, maybe a Syrian seagull invading Israeli airspace is sufficient cause to let loose.

World-Class Fool... Or just Another College Educated Idiot

An MIT student no less:
(WBZ) BOSTON An MIT student with a fake bomb strapped to her chest was arrested at gunpoint Friday at Logan International Airport and later claimed it was artwork, officials said.

Star Simpson, 19, had a computer circuit board and wiring in plain view over a black hooded sweat shirt she was wearing, said State Police Maj. Scott Pare, the commanding officer at the airport.

Simpson was "extremely lucky she followed the instructions or deadly force would have been used," Pare said. "She's lucky to be in a cell as opposed to the morgue."

No kidding. Imagine walking into an East Coast airport with a gadget made of a computer circuit board, batteries, blinking lights with a wad of play dough attached to it strapped visibly to your chest.

And then calling it "art". With publicity like this, this highly privileged MIT elitist moron will go far in today's world of feminism and girly men.

The Wrong Room

This from another of GW's undying fans":
... if GW Bush can get out of Sunni and Shiite Iraq with their promise not return the mosaic image of his father to the Rashid Baghdad Hotel floor for people to walk over, and not to have one also installed of himself, he will be fortunate....

Never knew that Bush senior had his face planted on the lobby floor of a Baghdad hotel. Helps to explain junior's jubilant willingness to stomp on Iraqis from now until the end of time.

When junior finally leaves Iraq, I suggest they put mosaics of him and his one-worlder daddy on the floor in front of each urinal.... in the same hotel, once it's rebuilt.

Pure, Raw insanity

How bad can it get?
OREM, somewhere in Utah - Betty Perry pleaded innocent Tuesday to charges she failed to water her lawn and resisted arrest when an officer attempted to cite her.
Perry appeared in 4th District Court in Orem to enter her plea in a case.
Perry's next appearance will be on Oct. 11 for a pre-trial conference.
In July, Perry was cited by Officer James Flygare of the police's Neighborhood Preservation Unit for failing to water her lawn. Perry refused to give her name to the officer and, when Flygare tried to stop her from going back inside her house, the 70-year-old great-grandmother reportedly tripped and injured her nose.
She was arrested and taken to police station but released shortly afterwards.
An investigation by the state Department of Public Safety cleared their world-class asshole of an officer Flygare of any wrongdoing, and city officials pressed charges against Perry on the landscape violation, a class C misdemeanor, and interfering with a police officer, a class B misdemeanor.

When do we start taking these bastards out and start horse-whipping them?

Pure, Raw Racism

This from "The", South Carolina's homepage:
(Jesse)Jackson sharply criticized presidential hopeful and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama for “acting like he’s white” in what Jackson said has been a tepid response to six black juveniles’ arrest on attempted-murder charges in Jena, La. Jackson...
Pure, unadultered, raw racism.

Jesse Jackson needs to be jailed for hate crimes. He is - and has always been - actively fomenting racial hatred.

The Real Combatants

This from the Jerusalem Post:
Six hundred Iranian Shihab-3 missiles are pointed at targets throughout Israel, and will be launched if either Iran or Syria are attacked, an Iranian website affiliated with the regime reported on Monday.

"Iran will shoot at Israel 600 missiles if it is attacked," the Iranian news website, Assar Iran, reported. "600 missiles will only be the first reaction."
Well. The bluntly plain message is... If Bush attacks Iran, Iran attacks Israel.

Something for Bush and his masters to consider... Saddam only launched a few missiles - obsolete and inaccurate ones at that - at Israel when the fireworks were re-ignited by the latest American incursion into this conflict. Iran says it will launch 600 far more accurate and modern missiles, which means Israel will take some real damage this go-around and experience some real war horror. That may be the only thing that has stopped Bush's attack on Iran so far.

Up to now, while Americans are dying by the thousands, the Jews have had only the occasional unguided small rocket attacks to absorb with their minimal damage and casualties. Most of those unguided weapons miss completely, and land harmlessly in the desert. But 600 modern guided missiles that will hit their targets - all in a matter of minutes - will make it an all-new wargame for Israel.

Yes, yes, Israel has Patriot missile interceptor sites. The Patriot system will bag a few missiles, but a swarm of 600 incoming targets will overwhelm the system. It's highly probable that 75% of more of the missiles will reach their Jewish targets, most of those targets being dense population centers, and who knows what will be in the warheads of these things... biological, chemical, maybe even the possibility of Chinese or Russian tactical nukes?

If Bush attacks Iran, it will be because the Jews think they can either successfully blunt the Iranian missile attack, or absorb the damage without severe consequence. Or even worse, Bush and his Israeli allies may believe that Iran doesn't have the claimed 600 missiles, or won't launch them if attacked.

If they are disastrously wrong, and you have to acknowledge that their over-confidence is frightening, my money says Israel would definitely respond with their non-existent nukes.

Perhaps Bush (foolish, foolish man that he is) would send in a few of those "misplaced" Bomber-launched nuclear cruise missiles he has just ordered re-positioned.

The possibility is that Bush's(and accordingly America's) legacy will be as the man - and nation - that ignited WW3.

Obama's Wife.. Again

Michelle Obama told THE EARLY SHOW's Hannah Storm that, unlike President Bush, her husband listens to criticism and doesn't always have to be right.

Maybe - as her husband - he can be wrong as often as he wishes, but if he becomes the President of the United States he had better be right 99.99% of the time.

We have had more than enough of disastrous leadership by gut feeling, guesswork, emotion and poor opinion - the tools of our present glorious leader - the born again wacko who claims to cry on God's shoulder.

We certainly can't afford another president who disses his advisers, ignores his critics, and goes off igniting mayhem around the world because he had one too many tacos for dinner, or the "gut feeling" syndrome.

Watching this presidental race unfold makes me feel like some of those in the trade center towers above the impact zones must have felt... trapped, no way out, with the clock ticking.

The Sinners Are Confessing

DRUDGE calls this "SHOCKING:
America's elder statesman of finance, Alan Greenspan, has shaken the White House by declaring that the prime motive for the war in Iraq was oil.
If that is a shocking surprise to DRUDGE, he needs to join the rest of us in reality land.

Is Greenspan trying to make peace with his maker, purge his soul, etc. in a very late attempt to stay out of Hell?

Or is one of the cretins who sold out and pillaged America and plundered our Treasury trying to buy a free pass to heaven, and earn his forgiveness from all us simple-minded Americans?


Greenspan is trying to make it look like he's claiming that it was those evil Texas oilmen that caused all this mess.

What he is really trying to do is take some of the increasing heat off Israel, the real creators and directors of this Iraq disaster.

His last hurrah for the gods of Zion.

Plain And Simple

The tail end of the latest over at Shrapnel:
The same day Petraeus was testifying before Congress, the Israeli Premier Olmert called for the US to stay the course in Iraq. The result is the US media and Congress have now received their marching orders.
Shrapnel is written by Colonel Robert E Bartos USA RET, who has an impressive resume and background, giving his comments much weight.

And he does make it "Plain and Simple"... the US media and Congress have now received their marching orders... from their overseers and masters in Israel.

Suicide Prone Friends

For whom the bell tolls:
NEW YORK - The saga of the scandal-plagued Democratic fundraiser with ties to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton took another strange twist after he mailed a suicide note last week to a legal organization.

A person who saw the letter said Thursday that the note from Norman Hsu explicitly stated that he "intended to commit suicide." The person declined to reveal the exact phrasing, but said it was not rambling in nature.
This dredges up memories about that Foster guy in the Clinton White House that committed suicide by shooting himself in the back, but still had the foresight and decency to do it in a remote Washington park.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The city's embattled police chief, acknowledging that police alone cannot quell a run of deadly violence, has called on 10,000 black men to patrol the streets to reduce crime.

Sylvester Johnson, who is black, says black men have a duty to protect more vulnerable residents. He wants each volunteer to pledge to work three hours a day for at least 90 days. Said Johnson:
It's time for African-American men to stand up,We have an obligation to protect our women, our children and our elderly. We're going to put men on the street. We're going to train them in conflict resolution.
I'm a bit confused here. Isn't that a string of blatantly racist comments?

If they're not, explain to me why they are not, because if a white police chief said anything like that and called on white men to do their duty, he would cause a mob of insulted blacks to spill out in the the streets, burning and looting... and be out of a job.

Game Plan Admitted

I just now watched that jackass in Washington tell us that success in Iraq was going to require efforts by America "beyond my presidency".

So he now admits it... he's trying to leave this mess - this Bush spawned disaster - to the next president to take the blame for.

Good job there, Dumbya... start the fight and then sneak out the backdoor.

Actually, I would truly love to know who really pulled his strings, since he was and is such an obvious puppet.

The Last Straw

Camille Paglia says at the end of her latest:
And of course Iraq needs to remain neutralized when American or Israeli bombs start dropping on Iran, which I have little doubt they will do by next year. Bush-Cheney, lacking a clear record of achievement, want to go out with a bang.
If such a thing does happen at the orders of George W. Bush, to me it would be the last straw.

If Bush/Cheney do that, I vote on that very next day after we are informed of such aggression we march on the People's House, drag them both out by their heels, toss them into Guantanamo and throw away the key.
"Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights."
Thomas Jefferson said that, and I still have hopes there are enough Americans left to act on his advice, although so many of us have forgotten this warning from George Washington:
Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.
And it is my view that George W. Bush has been - and is - the most irresponsible president in our history.

An American attack against Iran, or an American supported Israeli attack against Iran would be more than enough to confirm that.

And, just like Camille said... Welcome to WW III.

Uni-sex Tents?

This from the Jerusalem Post about a rocket strike that wounded a bunch of soldiers:
Monday night's rocket struck inside the Zikim military base, located one kilometer north of the Gaza Strip, at approximately 1:30 a.m. The Kassam landed next to a tent in which a group of soldiers were sleeping. Another rocket, which landed in an open area in the western Negev, caused no casualties.

The injuries were mostly caused by shrapnel and concrete that was kicked up following the explosion. The victims include both male and female soldiers.
Does this mean that both males and females were sleeping in the same tent?

If that's the case, I'd bet a few of them weren't sleeping...

4 Star Lap Dog

WASHINGTON (AP) - Gen. David Petraeus went before Congress on Monday to deliver his long-awaited assessment of Iraq.

His long-awaited assessment? I thought Congress had tasked the president to make the report.

Petraeus was at a career-killing dead end job when Bush tapped him on the shoulder to do his bidding in Iraq.

From late 2005 through February 2007, Petraeus was serving as commanding general of Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center (CAC) located there. As commander of CAC, Petraeus was responsible for oversight of the Command and General Staff College and seventeen other schools, centers, and training programs as well as for development of the Army’s doctrinal manuals, training the Army’s officers, and supervising the Army’s center for the collection and dissemination of lessons learned.

Paper-pushing and shuffling at it's best... that was his job before Bush and he put their heads together.

In polls across the nation, Americans have been asked if Petraeus could be trusted to give a true and factual report of the situation in Iraq. In every poll, almost 55% of us said no.

Probably because we all know that Bush hand-picked him fo the job.

If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it's probably a duck.

And if it smells like crap and looks like crap, it's probably crap.

The Book Of Bush

So Bush wrote a book. Whoopee. It's called:" Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush", actually written by Robert Draper.

This non-ending national disaster of a president admits that he "cries a lot." He also said that he has seen "ghosts" - that would be more than one - exiting the Lincoln bedroom, most probably ghosts of the Clinton era big money donors, hopefully awaiting resurrection by the lizard queen.

Of course, anybody who says he has God's shoulder to cry on - he did say that - would be a real candidate for seeing ghosts also. And he tells us he's quit drinking.

So Bush is "Dead Certain".

He may be "Certain", but it's 4,000 our our troops that are "Dead".

I can't tell you how much I would enjoy seeing Bush, Cheney, Pearl, Wolfowitz and a few more of those bastards all on trial for high treason... and found guilty.

Why? The list of reasons is long... and valid. If you have at least a three-digit IQ you can figure them out for yourself.

A Bush conviction for high treason would be a really nice last chapter for his book.

Frances Fragos Townsend

A bright star in the Bush world of achievers.

Ms. Frances Fragos Townsend was appointed Homeland Security Advisor by the President on May 28th, 2004. Ms. Townsend chairs the Homeland Security Council and reports to the President on United States Homeland Security policy and Combating Terrorism matters. She previously served as Deputy Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Combating Terrorism.

Ms. Townsend came to the White House from the U. S. Coast Guard, where she had served as Assistant Commandant for Intelligence. Prior to that, Ms. Townsend spent 13 years at the U. S. Department of Justice in a variety of senior positions, her last assignment as Counsel to the Attorney General for Intelligence Policy. Ms. Townsend began her prosecutorial career in 1985, serving as an Assistant District Attorney in Brooklyn, New York.

My my.

Assistant District Attorney in New York.
Counsel to the Attorney General for Intelligence Policy.
U.S. Coast Guard Assistant Commandant for Intelligence.
Deputy National Security Advisor for combating Terrorism.
Deputy Assistant to the President.

And now.....(drum roll)

Homeland Security Advisor! Appointed by the president!

This woman comes with a bag full of background for the job.

So why am I highlighting this intelligence superstar?

She was just on CNN today, being interviewed by Wolf Blitzer. Wolf asked her that - after six years - why the United States, the most powerful nation on earth, hadn't be able to catch Bin Laden and kill him.

She never answered the question. She never answered any of Wolf's questions. Her replies were vacuous, containing inane and worthless comments on how we have plans, are making progress, have formed commitees, have developed a working relationship with the Pakistani government, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Wonder why we haven't nabbed Osama? this career "advisor" may just be part of the problem.

Plans, relationships, committees, think-tanking, ideating, you name it. But action? Forget it.

And besides, without Osama, Bush has no devil to scare us with. Maybe that's why he appointed a champion talker with a great track record of chit-chat, instead of somebody that would actually recommend action... and answer questions.

The Snake In The Tree, New Version

NOBLE, Oklahoma (AP) -- A police officer shooting at a snake in a tree killed a 5-year-old boy who was fishing at a nearby pond.

Jack Tracy was fishing with his grandson Austin Haley when a bullet fired by the police officer "apparently" struck the boy in the head.

Tracy thought someone must be trying to kill him and his grandson, so he put the child on the back of a 4-wheeler and drove to his daughter's house about 200 yards away.

"Then two officers came out of the brush over there," he told The Oklahoman. "They didn't tell us they were the ones who had been shooting or that they had shot him. They didn't admit a doggone thing."

Police officials have refused to identify the officer involved but said the person had been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Tracy has little doubt. Said he:
I'm not saying the cop shot him on purpose," he said. "But let me tell you -- if I had a kid and put him in this car and didn't put him in a car seat and he got killed on the way to town, they'd charge me with murder ... and what this cop did is a lot worse than that.
This cop will walk... He(or she) is a part of the armed mob that serves at the pleasure of the government, and anyway, all he(or she) did was kill some expendable Okie kid.

President Bush may get a bit angry since he wants kids like that to grow up to be an "Army Of One", so he can send them to Iraq and maybe Iran to get killed with honor, thus allowing the president to "do tears" on camera.

Killing our kids is an OK thing if your the president, but a cop killing a kid is a bit out of line. It's an embarrassment for those in power, and should be generally avoided if possible.

But a snake in a tree? Must have been the Devil himself!

To hell with the consequences, blast away!

"paid administrative leave" is in reality a vacation paid for by the taxpayers... including the family of this dead boy.

It's One Or The Other

Senator Chuck Hagel(R-Neb) will announce Monday that he is quitting the U.S. Senate after only two terms and will not run for president next year.

According to close sources he will not run for re-election and he does not intend to be a candidate for any office in 2008.

Why would a Senator quit after only two terms? At two terms, he was just getting into the seniority groove to get really powerful committee chairs, getting to really know the lobbyists and their copious donations, the whole beltline bit.

Anybody with half a brain understands that the Republicans have put a loaded gun to their own heads by allowing Bush and his gang of arrogant thugs to run rampant for two presidential terms. The Republican party is a sinking ship, scuttled by it's own crew. So two-time Senator Chuck Hagel(R-Neb) can be one of only two things:

-1) A "crew" member who has decided to no longer serve on board a ship commanded by a modern Captain Ahab, or

-2) Just another rat - one of many - abandoning a sinking ship.

I wonder which one he is, but I really don't give a damn. One Washington bought-and-sold insider gone.... ninety-nine to go.


A third possibility:

Maybe the bastards that control the senate decided he wasn't a team player(rabidly pro-Israel) and quietly told him his effectiveness as a Senator for Nebraska and his role as a major player in the Republican party is history.

Mexican Trucks Start To Roll

The first Mexican truck authorized by a Bush administration program opening U.S. highways to trucking companies from south of the border crossed into the U.S. this morning at approximately 1:50 a.m. EDT at Laredo, Texas, headed for North Carolina, according to a report from

Below is a picture of the woman responsible for that, Mary E. Peters, Secretary of Transportation.

Mary E. Peters was nominated by President George W. Bush on September 5, 2006, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate as the 15th Secretary of Transportation on September 30, 2006.

A Feb. 22, 2007, ceremony held in Apodaca, a municipality of the city of Monterrey in the Mexican state Nuevo Leon, the headquarters location of Transportes Olympic, was attended by Mary E. Peters, where she officially blessed Transportes Olympic as the first Mexican trucking company that would be allowed to operate freely in the U.S. under NAFTA.

Officially blessed. This is the kind of witless idiot we have running things today, everywhere in the Bush administration.

Should these trucks and drivers start creating mayhem on our highways, be sure to remember that Mary E. Peters, Bush appointee, was a major force behind the whole stinking thing.

Don't Worry, they're Just Nuclear Bombs

This is from the Cannonfire site:
The most significant news story of the day is the revelation that a nuke-laden B-52 traveled from Minot, North Dakota, to Barksdale, Louisiana. Former CIA man Larry Johnson explains:
So I called a old friend and retired B-52 pilot and asked him. What he told me offers one compelling case of circumstantial evidence. My buddy, let’s call him Jack D. Ripper, reminded me that the only times you put weapons on a plane is when they are on alert or if you are tasked to move the weapons to a specific site.

Then he told me something I had not heard before.

Barksdale Air Force Base is being used as a jumping off point for Middle East operations. Gee, why would we want cruise missile nukes at Barksdale Air Force Base. Can’t imagine we would need to use them in Iraq. Why would we want to preposition nuclear weapons at a base conducting Middle East operations?

His final point was to observe that someone on the inside obviously leaked the info that the planes were carrying nukes. A B-52 landing at Barksdale is a non-event. A B-52 landing with nukes. That is something else.
The official explanation is that the nukes were transferred by mistake.(Worry not, we are told: The transportation was done safely at all times. As though this were a safety issue.) That piece of spin seems unlikely, to say the least. We are, after all, talking about nuclear weapons.
So Commander-in-Chief George W. Bush is positioning nukes at a base conducting Middle East operations.

Look for headlines telling us that the United States has just used "tactical" nuclear devices on Iran's nuclear facilities any day now... to "protect merika and merikins".

I've said it before... this man is INSANE.

Say What?

Said presidential candidate Obama:
I've been in elected office longer than John Edwards or Hillary Clinton," said Obama. "I've passed more bills I'm sure than either of them...
He says that like he's proud of it.

Good grief, we have enough damned laws on the books already. I'll vote for a candidate that stands up and says he has voted down more bills than anybody else, and intends to eliminate a bunch more.

Speaking of Obama, Oprah says she will now support him. Gee, that's a big surprise. She's tossing a fundraiser that will feature Stevie Wonder. Another big surprise. Other than the ever-present wannabes, will there be any white folk present?

Modern Maintenance

Officials at Nepal's state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.
Well now. You frequent fliers have something to look forward to.

When this one-world utopia that the Bushes and their masters are pushing kicks in, you'll have techniques like goat-slaughter to keep your aircraft in the sky.

The "Brave New World" is coming to your neighborhood... soon.

Cry Me A River

Calvin Woodward, an AP writer, says this:
Bush granted journalist Robert Draper several extended interviews in late 2006 and early 2007, as well as unusual access to his aides, for the book "Dead Certain: The Presidency of George W. Bush," which went on sale Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2007.

President Bush told the author of this new book "I try not to wear my worries on my sleeve" or show anything less than steadfastness in public, especially in a time of war.

"I fully understand that the enemy watches me, the Iraqis are watching me, the troops watch me, and the people watch me," he said. Yet, he said, "I do tears."
He does tears. Must be his feminine side taking over. Says Bush:
"I've got God's shoulder to cry on. And I cry a lot. I do a lot of crying in this job. I'll bet I've shed more tears than you can count, as president. I'll shed some tomorrow."
So he has God's shoulder to cry on.

Read the below slowly and carefully:

This man is insane.

Maxine Chesney

By now everybody knows that a judge in the 9th U. S. District Court has blocked the Social Security Administration from sending out letters about names of employees that don't match Social Security numbers on record, or vice-versa.

Everybody knows it was Judge Maxine M. Chesney. But that's all you get on this woman.

OK. Here's a picture I found of her after many hours of searching.

Obviously, this picture is of her during or a bit after her college years most likely, definitely not a picture of a woman in her mid-sixties.

But finding photos of judges is harder than you can possibly imagine. They must be scared to death of exposure to the general public.

She was born in 1942, went To UC Berkeley for her BA (graduated 1964) and then the Boalt Hall School of Law(also Berkeley, graduated 1967).

Ah ha. Graduated all that school stuff at Berkeley smack in the middle of the hippie movement centered around Haight and Ashbury just up the road in San Francisco.

On January 24, 1995, President William Jefferson Clinton nominated her for her federal judgeship, probably at the prodding of his wife Hillary, who was herself a sixties style hippie also. What the hell, maybe one -or both - of the Clinton's knew her during those free-wheeling and free-loving days of flower power.

It all fits. Just thought you'd like to know.

Simple Minded...

Fred Reed's latest post talks of "Another South", one that he grew up in and one that his parents abandoned. He speaks of his father, what he did, and why. Says Fred:
My father, with the simple-minded patriotism of the South of the time, had gone back into the military to be an artillery spotter for the Marines in Korea.
There is no anger or malice in this statement, only a retelling of the event.

In some ways, it answers - for me - why so many young Americans still go into the military, after five years of this insane Iraqi quagmire, a place where they will spend repeated years getting shot at by fanatics, exploded into bits by IED's, never able to get a real nights sleep for months on end, where they have a real chance of dying - or worse - coming home with no arms or legs.

Simple minded patriotism. That's Bush's secret weapon, that's what he plays to when he goes on TV, that's what he depends on to continue his wars.

But there's only so many simple minded youngsters who fall for the Honor, Duty, Country bit, the idea that they will be fighting to save America.

Sooner or later, they will figure out the rest of the slogan: "You made them strong. We'll make then Army strong". They will come to realize that the last part of that little Madison Avenue ditty is... "and then, Army dead."

At that point, simple minded patriotism will vanish. And Bush's wars will end.

Because God Said So

At least according to Bill Richardson.

This takes Bill Richardson totally off my list of potential people I would vote for:

Sioux City, Ia. - God's will is for Iowa to have the first-in-the-nation caucus, Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson told a crowd here Monday.

"Iowa, for good reason, for constitutional reasons, for reasons related to the Lord, should be the first caucus and primary," said Richardson, New Mexico's governor.
Well now. Where does it say that in the bible?

He must have got that directly from God, so I can only assume that Bill Richardson has found the lost Ark of the Covenant, since it has been reported to be a device used to communicate with God. Honest... a guy said that in the movie "Raiders Of The Lost Ark", a good a source as any on the subject.

No wonder the Jews never found it. It was hidden in the white sand dunes of New Mexico.

As for voting for Bill Richardson, George W. Bush has shown us all what happens when we have a president who believes he is doing God's work.

A Three Day Blitz

This from WND:
The Pentagon has formulated a "three-day blitz" plan to annihilate Iran's military that targets 1,200 sites, including Tehran's nuclear facilities, in order to render its military incapable of conducting offensive, defensive or retaliatory missions.

According to the London Sunday Times, citing Alexis Debat, director of terrorism and national security at the Nixon Center, the Pentagon has rejected a strategy of "pinprick strikes" against Iran's nuclear facilities.

"They're about taking out the entire Iranian military," Debat said.
That's assuming that Iran is just going to sit there with it's mlitary all exposed, just waiting for the stealth bombers to strike.

Somehow, I don't think that Iran is doing that. The lessons learned from two attacks on Iraq using stealth has been no doubt learned not only by us, but by the Iranians also.

Unlike the neocons and Israelis supporting Bush's threatened attack on Iran, I am not assuming that Iran's military to be sitting ducks. Surely they have learned a few of the hard lessons from Saddam's failures to disperse, to hide, to mislead.

Since it now appears certain that Bush is going to attack Iran no matter what, we are going find out.

Saturn's Hexagon

One of the most bizarre weather patterns known has been photographed at Saturn, where astronomers have spotted a huge, six-sided feature circling the north pole. It's nearly 15,000 miles across, and you could fit four earth's inside it easily.

The honeycomb-like feature has been seen before. NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft imaged it more than two decades ago. Now, having spotted it with the Cassini spacecraft, scientists conclude it is a long-lasting oddity.

Researchers at the Technical University of Denmark have spun buckets of water, and photographed geometrical whirlpools developing. As the buckets are spun up, central holes develop that are first elliptical, then triangular, then square, pentagonal, and hexagonal.

Fascinating, but nobody has figured out the science behind it yet. We know so little about how things really work.

Wow, What A Babe!

Half A Dream Come True

It's a start:
AL-ASAD AIR BASE, Iraq (AP) - President Bush and his national security team made a first-hand assessment of the war in Iraq and prospects for political reconciliation Monday as a showdown nears with Congress over the U.S. troop buildup.
The president secretly flew 11 hours to this air base in a remote part of Anbar province, bypassing Baghdad in a symbolic expression of impatience with political paralysis in the nation's capital.
A remote air base out in the middle of nowhere? A symbolic expression of impatience? Bull droppings. It's a physical expression of cowardice.

His physically being in Iraq is only half my dream. The other half is handing him a rifle and a flak vest and then sending him into the streets outside the green zone for fifteen months, driving a Humvee on those IED-mined streets - not at some remote and safe air base, but in the center of Bagdad - so be could personally experience his vision of the democracy he has given the people of Iraq.

Eubonics 101

There is a handbook that has been passed around in the Houston police department for the last couple of months called "Eubonics 101". From what I could tell from the TV pictures of it, it was a many times copied effort originally made on a PC. But it had real English description of words used by the N word people and a blurb saying that understanding eubonics could save your life.(in tense police situations, one assumes)

It has stuff like:

Mo - (mow) - more
Fo - (foe) - for, or four

However, when you put the two together as in MoFo, it comes out with a completely different meaning, so it seems to me that a booklet describing what eubonics words and sounds actually mean appears useful to me.

I would love to get a copy... as a reference for research of course.

Now, since it has been "discovered" by the higher ups, the N word people and the media have their panties all in a bunch again, howling away at the moon, or whatever it is they like to howl at. For some reason, they think that this booklet is an insult, a racial slur, a slap in the face to those who prefer to communicate using eubonics.

All it really does is present an opportunity for those who speak English to understand a primarily African/American generated street talk, and since most of the words and descriptions are already in Websters, this little booklet is - in reality - just a compilation created for convenience, a "quick reference" for a Houston police officer engaged in conversation with a eubonics proponent.

What a shame. Yet another effort to communicate with the natives goes down in flames.
