Better now

I feel better now. I apologize for my previous outbust. I was having a bad day. When I heard about how the Islamofascists blew up 5 GIs and battered their burned bodies it made me really really angry. Plus I read some anti-bush stuff at blogcritics, and it made me angrier.

I feel better now because they found that U of W student who was missing since Saturday, she is alive and safe. It is good news.

Thank God for small miracles.

Tom has his mental breakdown.

I am getting totally sick and tired of fucking liberal socialist elitists sitting smugly like they are so much better, smarter, and more informed than the average American. Racist assholes say it's racist of me to require everyone to be on a equal footing where in fact they are saying that minorities aren't as good as us, therefore they need special help.

I hate when they say Al Franken type lines like "Better to screw an intern than to screw the country".

These asshole liberals jumping on the Richard Clark Bandwagon blaming Bush for 9/11 in a totally transparent election year ploy.

If I see a fucking hippy fuckface protesting somewhere about "No war for Oil" or see someone with a picture of George Bush looking like Hitler I think I will seriously hurt them.

Where's my Prozac?

Fuck Iraq

Akbar Muhammad Muhammad Muhammad, spokesman for the "Religion of Peace"
BAGHDAD, Iraq  — Five members of the U.S. military were killed by a bomb blast west of Baghdad on Wednesday, Fox News has confirmed. The Associated Press is reporting that the five killed were soldiers, but that report has not been confirmed.

I'm sick of these Islamofascists blowing shit up. I say let's pull out of Iraq, but before we do, we destroy all infrastructure. Lets destroy all water treatment plants, all the oil fields and all factories. Let them die of thirst and hunger, and give them a real reason for killing us. If Allah is so powerful, let him help them.

Work Work Work

I've been terribly busy lately. Both with regular job and my farm.

The weather has been highly cooperative, so as most farmers do, I had to make hay while the sun shone.

One thing I discovered today is that when you put a sign that says "FREE" on something, someone will most likely take it.

Take what I did today for instance. I had an old, though used only once, 50 gallon sprayer, it was a little rusty, and the engine had rusted tight in the 17 years it say unused in the back of the barn. I put a free sign on it, and not only did they take the sprayer, but they also took the free sign.

I also put out an old, though NEVER used dishwasher. It was a 1974 model Kenmore. It even sat out in the back yard all winter under a pile of snow, but someone took that along with my old 18 1/2 inch weber grill.

Free is great aint it?

Army for a stupid people

A huge controversy is brewing in the Coal Region of Pennsylvania.


If the "Army" had their way, this is how it would stay.

As part of mine reclamation projects, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has a approved a plan to use River Sludge from New York to reclaim a mine pit in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania.

The Springdale Pit, a huge open pit left over from strip mining of Anthricite coal, is going to be filled up with River Sludge and Coal Fly Ash. The former surface mine pit is 300 feet deep, 2,500 feet long and 1,200 feet wide and straddles the boundaries of Coaldale, Summit Hill and Tamaqua boroughs. The DEP says its's safe and is a good way to reclaim the land left over from unsightly and more environmentally dangerous coal mining. Once the pit is filled, it can be used for parks, businesses, and homes. Right now it's an ugly mess.

But despite the fact that the pit is unsightly and dangerous, concerned citizens have formed a grassroots organization called The Army For a Clean Environment. This "Amry" is led by local lawyer, Dante Picciano, who uses scare tactics and junk science to whip the citizens into an uproar.

From Times News On-line

[Kathleen] McGinty, secretary of the state Department of Enviromental Protection (DEP), came to town to conduct a DEP public meeting to learn what locals think about the government's decision to allow 'beneficial use' of river sludge and a fly ash/sludge mixture.

The combination, what many call a toxic cocktail, could be dumped into Springdale Pit.

McGinty was on the hotseat for most of the emotionally-charged session. A few dozen local residents sounded off with a barrage of opinons and questions about an issue in which the voice of the people has been largely ignored by a state environmental agency that McGinty said is "making tough decisions."

But the most dramatic moment took place 75 minutes into the meeting. Dr. Dante Picciano, Esq., founder of the 750-member Army for a Clean Environment, quietly awaited his turn at the microphone. As he stepped up and announced his name, he was welcomed by a standing ovation in tribute to his dedicated labors to protect his hometown region.

Using typical environmentalist ploys, citizens used their children as props, as their children held up signs and begged the big bad DEP not to killl them.

One of the most touching questions came from 8-year-old Peter Baddick of St. Jerome Regional School.

"Why are you contaminating my water? I want to live a good life. It could make me sick and die," said the youngster.

Despite no real scientific evidence to back up their claims of pollution and long term damage, the people of Tamaqua follow Picciano's lead, even resorting to childish tactics when they don't get their way

"We have not yet begun to fight," declared Picciano, to a roar of applause.

Picciano's next question cut to the heart of the matter.

"Is there anything we can do to change your mind about this permit," he asked McGinty.

McGinty paused slightly, and then responded: "We stand by our decision."

At that point, Picciano turned and exited the auditorium and 500 stood up and followed him. The mass exodus left about 120 scattered around the room, some remaining to voice specific concerns to the DEP staff.

It seems that nearly everyone in the area is scared to death of the dumping in the Springdale pit, thanks in part to Mr. Picciano who has set himself up as a powerful demagogue.

The DEP which is the state agency charged to protect our environment from pollution has the labs and trained personnel to know for sure what is safe or not. They know from experience that the material to be dumped in the pit is safe, and is a good way to reclaim the unsightly pit.

Our environment, both state and nationwide, has been and is continually cleaner now than in many many years. Mr. Picciano has anointed himself the only one who knows better then Kathleen McGinty and her entire staff what is environmentally safe.

He has convinced hundreds of good and concerned people to join his "Army For a Clean Environment" to stop the Springdale pit dumping.

By following his lead, they have stopped thinking for themselves as evidenced by the childish mass exodus out of the meeting on Monday when 500 sheep followed Mr. Picciano out of the meeting with DEP secretary Kathleen McGinty watching.

I sincerely hope these well intentioned people start thinking for themselves, start making their own decisions, and stop believing the junk science propagated by Picciano's "Army".

Kill, Kill, Kill the ISP

I have frontiernet for an ISP and I am going to find them and bash their little stupid skulls in (figuratively speaking of course).

All of a sudden they are now requiring all incoming emails and email accounts to have reverse DNS enabled. That is good and all, but I got not prior notice, and now no one, except other frontiernet email accounts can send to me.

After waiting 15 minutes on hold to talk to a guy, I found out that I have to notify all my people who email me and have THEM contact THEIR ISPs so they can fix the problem.

It really pisses me off that I have to call my co-workers and people I work with and inconvenience them to fix what is my ISPs problem.

I am flaming angry.

Stupid Drunks

Stupid Drunks piss me off. Here I am trying to mind my own business, having a burger and a beer at a local speakeasy, and some alcoholic backs into my car.

I get home last night only to see my hood slightly crumpled. I was up at 8 this morning trying to get my hood to work properly as I have to drive to Bensalem later this morning.

I finally got my hood working, only ever so slightly damaged, and only noticable to the careful eye of someone who loves their car. It only has 110,000 miles on it, barely out of diapers (as it is a Subaru). And I have a slight bulge in the hood.

It's fine and drivable and hardly noticable, it's just the asshat driving the Chevy truck who backed into me, drove away. Leaving me with further reasons to hate chevy trucks and the drunk people who drive them.

Oh well.

Time to bash some hippy skulls

I am about sick of these hippie shit for brains equating George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler. It is insulting to the memories of those who were slaughtered under Hitler, and is insulting to my intelligence.

These hippies are the ones who allowed Adolf Hitler to come to power in the first place by appeasing him in the build up to World War 2. They looked the other way while he marched through Europe and sent Jews to death camps.

Actually, no, probably this guy's parents actually called the S.S. to report where Jews were hiding so he is more responsible for death of repressed citizens than Bush will ever be.

The then looked the other way while mass atrocities were committed in Iraq.

To equate Bush to Hitler is sickening and insulting to the memories of all the people that Fascist leader murdured. It shows a weak mind, and total misunderstanding of history. And history will show them, again, on the wrong side of good and evil.

My ears are burning

Looks like I'm being talked about. Over at American Black they talk about a post by notoriously venemous Mac Diva in which she attacks me for my post about Public School's Evil Nature.

Her response is well thought out, backed up with facts, and has a lot of merit.
Where I start ignoring people, though, is when they immediatly throw out the race card by accusing someone of racism or bigotry without so much as a concrete example.

Much to what Mac Diva will have you belive, I am not, never have been, and never will be a racist. Aside from the occasional comment troll, I urge you to find something on my site I've said which is racist in nature.

I may say some things which may irritate a few like when I made fun of the NAACP, but you have to take the humorous posts with the serious ones, and be able to tell the difference. Note to people: When I write in a post how NPR is used to put people to sleep behind the wheel of the SUVs, it's mostly likely a humerous post.

In my experience, when people have poor arguments, self esteem issues, and know they've beaten in a discussion, they resort to name calling. It is also typical liberalism to label someone a bigot or a racist if they disagree with something.

Against gay marriage?

Against Affirmative Action?

Want to go see "The Passion of The Christ"?

And BTW, what does MAPP mean. Diva and now this guy refer to me as MAPP

Pizza Hut Order in the Socialist Future

Operator: "Thank you for calling Pizza Hut. May I have your national ID number?"

Customer: "Hi, I'd like to place an order."

Operator: "I must have your NIDN first, sir?"

Customer: "My National ID Number, yeah, hold on, eh, it's 6102049998-45-54610."

Operator: "Thank you, Mr. Sheehan. I see you live at 1742 Meadowland Drive, and the phone number's 494-2366. Your office number over at Lincoln Insurance is 745-2302 and your cell number's 266-2566. Email address is I see you are calling from home, would you like it delivered there?"

Customer: "Huh? Where d'ya get all this information?"

Operator: "We're wired into the HSS, sir."

Customer: "The HSS, what is that?"

Operator: "We're wired into the Homeland Security System, sir. This will add only 15 seconds to your ordering time"

Customer: (Sighs) "Oh, well, I'd like to order a couple of your All-Meat Special pizzas."

Operator: "I don't think that's a good idea, sir."

Customer: "Whaddya mean?"

Operator: "Sir, your medical records and commode sensors indicate that you've got very high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol. Your National Health Care provider won't allow such an unhealthy choice."

Customer: "What?!?! What do you recommend, then?"

Operator: "You might try our low-fat Soybean Pizza. I'm sure you'll like it."

Customer: "What makes you think I'd like something like that?"

Operator: "Well, you checked out 'Gourmet Soybean Recipes' from your local library last week, sir. That's why I made the suggestion."

Customer: "All right, all right. Give me two family-sized ones, then."

Operator: "That should be plenty for you, your wife and your four kids, and your 2 dogs can finish the crusts, sir. Your total is $49.99."

Customer: "Lemme give you my credit card number."

Operator: "I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid you'll have to pay in cash. Your credit card balance is over its limit."

Customer: "I'll run over to the ATM and get some cash before your driver gets here."

Operator: "That won't work either, sir. Your checking account's overdrawn also."

Customer: "Never mind! Just send the pizzas. I'll have the cash ready. How long will it take?"

Operator: "We're running a little behind, sir. It'll be about 45 minutes, sir. If you're in a hurry you might want to pick 'em up while you're out getting the cash, but then, carrying pizzas on a motorcycle can be a little awkward."

Customer: "Wait! How do you know I ride a motorcycle?"

Operator: "It says here you're in arrears on your car payments, so your car got repo'ed. But your Harley's paid for and you just filled the tank yesterday"

Customer: Well I'll be a "@#%/$@&?#!"

Operator: "I'd advise watching your language, sir. You've already got a July 4, 2006 conviction for cussing out a cop and another one I see here on September for contempt at your hearing for cussing at a judge. Oh yes I see here that you just got out from a 90 day stay in the State Correctional Facility. Is this your first pizza since your return to society?"

Customer: (Speechless)

Operator: "Will there be anything else, sir?"

Customer: "Yes, I have a coupon for a free 2 liter of Coke".

Operator: "I'm sorry sir, but our ad's exclusionary clause prevents us from offering free soda to diabetics. The New Homeland Secure Constitution that has just been ratified prohibits this. Thank you for calling Pizza Hut

Clinton and Reno, Guilty of Treason

One of the things John Kerry wants to do differently in the war on terror is to treat the war on terror as a "legal issue". That is exactly how Bill Cinton treated Al Qaida and UBL. And it didn't work.

From NBC News.
As the 9/11 commission investigates what Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush might have done to prevent the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, one piece of evidence the commission will examine is a videotape secretly recorded by a CIA plane high above Afghanistan. The tape shows a man believed to Osama bin Laden walking at a known al-Qaida camp.

The question for the 9/11 commission: If the CIA was able to get that close to bin Laden before 9/11, why wasn’t he captured or killed? The videotape has remained secret until now.

The most recent drone photos of UBL was from May of 2000. Before Bush took office. Despite the fact that evidence overwhelmingly shows Al Qaiada and UBL were responsible for the WTC 1993 bombing, the USS Cole, and our embassys Clinton did not act.

What I find even more disturbing is that the asshats over at DU are quick to write it off as a fluke, and turn around and blame BUSH for it.

Even though past history has proven that law enforcement techniques have not worked in the war on terrorism, libs still want to abandon the military avenue and return to the appeasement Keystone Cops technique perfected by Klinton.

What the Union did to Philly

I really hate unions.

As a fan of the city of Philadelphia, I was thrilled to see that the Real World, the popular MTV show, was coming to Philadelphia.

The popularity of the show among 12-30 year olds would be good to boost the perception of the City and of Pennsylvania as a whole.

But those hopes were immediatly smashed by the mafia thugs of Teamsters Local 107.


But within four days, [the show's producers] had incurred the wrath of the city's unions by hiring a nonunion company to renovate the former Seamen's Church Institute in Old City, where Real World's cast was to live.

The series had sidestepped organized labor in 13 previous cities, including union strongholds New York, Chicago, and Boston, without incident.

"Every other production company comes in, sits down and bargains," said Tony Frasco, vice president of Teamsters Local 107, whose members drive vehicles and unload trucks. "The unions are not out to gouge anybody, but this is a union town."


Good. Thanks to the Union thugs of Local 107, and Tony Soprano..errr Tony Frasco, no one will be working on this project in Philadelphia.

More dengerously though, this will mostly hurt the bars, clubs, restaurants, and small business which dot Old City and the areas surrounding where The Real World was going to shoot.

Meryl Levitz, head of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp., said last month that she expected The Real World to aid in her work with the Knowledge Industry Partnership, a college-student retention initiative.

If MTV chooses a cast that "young people see as similar to them and presents Philadelphia as hip and desirable . . . you can't buy that kind of publicity," she said.

That is sad. Thanks local 107.

Stupid unions.

How I feel about the war against terror

The following is from the Poem, The Defence of Fort M'Henry. The first line of the last stanza shows my feelings exactly as it comes to the war on terror.

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand  
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation, 
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n - rescued land 
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, for our cause is just, 
And this be our motto--"In God is our trust." 
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave

Score Update and Electoral College Explanation

Terrorists 1
Freedom 0


Sixth member of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"

Well because of the spineless EUers, they now have a new president in Spain. A socialist no less, and he has said he will no longer help with the war in Iraq. They way they see it, if they put their heads in the sand and beg not to be bothered, they terrorists will leave them alone.

This also further scares me because if the polls were any indication, the terrorists attacks directly influenced the election. Even if it didn't, it looks like it did, and the terrorists see that. With elections coming up in our country, I would be careful.

One thing going on our side is the Electoral College. If a week or so before the election Bush is ahead in the polls, and an attack happens, and Kerry wins, Bush can still be re-elected, thanks to the Electoral College.

One of the reasons the electoral college was instituted was to stop sudden swings in voter sentiment. Just as in Spain when the Popular party was firmly in the lead until the attacks where they then lost to the Socialist party. In America even if Kerry were to win the popular vote, the electors would not have to vote for him, and could vote for Bush.

Israel, I stand with you!

I am sick of terrorists attacking Israel. I am firmly in the belief that we have treated the terrorists with Kid Gloves. We must act firm, and destroy the terrorists.
Emperor Misha states my point of view nicelly

Israel, I stand with you!!

Also, I find it totally farked up that at DU, where I frequently troll and post as the Ghost of Liberals past, is pretty much blaming Sharon and the Jews for these wackos blowing up innocent Israelies. I pointed out there something like the effect that we should crack down on them, and they say it should be started with Sharon.

I was banned from DU. Granted, I was not a progressive or liberal or socialist, and I was trolling, but I never said anything provocative except that we should kill the terrorists who attacked Israel.

Again, the fuckwhits at DU are total assholes who love to spew venom while touting free speech, but ban anyone who slightly disagrees with their narrow viewpoint.

Hey Gris, can you get my Stoooogie

I tried a new cigar the other day. Usually I smoke Drew Estate Natural Clean Robustos, but I decided to try a high end flavored cigar and I tried the Dreamsicle by Heavenly Cigars. It was Heavenly.

I got an email asking what the heck "Wha Happan" means. Well, I suggest you go see "A Mighty Wind". Then you'll get it.
Or you can listen to this

One last thing, I came across this humerous quiz about things. It gives correct answers based on if you are a Conservative, Liberal, Libertarian, or communist.

Robin Hood's practice of stealing from the rich to give to the poor was...


LIBERAL: a brave, generous and heroic deed.

LBERTARIAN: a foolish, misguided attempt at social engineering.

COMMUNIST: an inspiration to us all.

The Asshole Underground

They should change the name of the Democratic Underground to the Asshole Underground. This pathetic unemployed bunch of whiners actually seem to be rejoicing that bombs exploded in Spain. They see it as a way to defeat Bush.

Instead of showing solidarity with a fellow Demomcracy, they are cheering and holding it up as an example, in their twisted thought process, of why we must not attack terrorists, but try to be their friends. They see the attack as a way to make John Kerry President

This whole think really stinks. I think the conservative element is Spain is pulling some shit. And it may very well be a preview of our upcoming election season.

I also had a post deleted by the moderators.

It was in response to someone accusing me of a double standard. He equated cracking down on terrorists the same as busloads of Jewish school children being blown up by Jihadists.

Subject: You are wacked

If you equate protecting Jewish citizens from terrorists as killing innocent Muslims, then you are wrong. Anyone who indiscriminatly kills another group is WRONG. Jewish, Christian, or Muslim.

Meanwhile the following post was NOT removed and was in a larger subthread about why we should kill terrorists.

Subject: Kill them all

Let's start with Junior and the NeoCons.

I hope the Organic food the DUers eat gives them a deadly disease.

Most of the people at the Democratic Underground are not good Americans, and not true believers in Democracy and freedom. They are so filled with hatred for Bush, they will rejoice when people die if they think it will make Bush unelectable.

I remember Rush Limbaugh saying something about 4 years ago or so. He said when the liberals lose power is when they get really wacky. They are filled with hatred because they think they didn't really lose, and that's why they hate Bush. When Bush smaks John Kerry in the general election, and they lose legitimately, I think you will see all kinds of total mental breakdowns. We will have to build new psychiatric hospitals for this new condition that will exist.

You may have seen pictures, and even these don't do it justice until you are actually on this beast. It's massive.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a few answers to some questions that come in frequently. Before you ask them, read this FAQ:

1. Who are you, and where do you live?
None of your business

2. Why "The Age of Reason".?
I've become increasingly interested in "The Enlightenment". Many of our founding fathers followed that philosophy that promoted reason, freedom of thought and religion, and tolerance. A lot of what makes America great is founded on that ability to question the norm and think up new ideas.

3. Who is that old guy in your header? Is he a relative of yours?
That would be Benjamin Franklin. You went to a public school didn't you?

4. What are some of your favorite things?
Telling liberals how they are stupid, smoking cigars, brewing beer, reading, hanging with the missus, and playing with my kitties and dog.

5. I've seen pictures of you with guns. What sort of guns are your favorites?
I like my Glock 17, preban with tritium nighsights. I also love to go shooting with my 16ga Savage. That is a fun plinking shotgun

6. What is your favorite blogs?
I have a lot. I enjoy IMAO for fun stuff along with his gal pal, SarahK. Rule of thumb is that any blog listed under "Hot Blogspots", I read daily.

7. What does this picture signify?

It means I'm a freemason, and I help control all industry and global politics. Plus it really pisses off people like Pat Robertson.

My NAACP experience

Well, I was at a meeting today, and I met some happy big city liberals. They were all happy doing their liberal stuff, and I came to one conclusion.

They listen to NPR a lot. Why is it whenever I run into big city liberals they are always talking about a show they heard on NPR. Not only that they are always bringing up the fact that they heard something on NPR, or this or that.

The thing I hate most about NPR, in addition to the fact that big city liberals listen to it, is that it is always at around 88 on the FM dial, always interfering with my iPod playing music through my FM car radio. Here I am happily listening to Toby Keith, only to have "The Taliban Song" inturrupted by "Almost All Things Considered."

The only time I would ever listen to NPR is when I want to kill myself by falling asleep behind the wheel of my SUV and go off the road, hitting a tree (an endangered one)

Now at this meeting I was followed on the agenda by this:

R. Ace Baiter: NAACP Election 2004

Now when I saw that the NAACP was going to talk about the election I knew there was going to be an attack on Bush, aggressive or passive aggressive.

Well R. Ace Baiter spoke on the desperate need to get out to vote. DESPERATE need to vote this year so we have a president who is elected and not 'selected'. WTF?? I'm not even going to get into that old discussion. It was over 4 years ago!!

About half the room, the half with trendy Lisa Loeb glasses and copies of the latest Dan Brown novel cheered. A third sat quietly, and the rest grumbled. I sat quietly because a community meeting on community health is not the place to get political.

Ms. Baiter followed up her talking point with "well whether you think the current president is good or bad we need to vote" blah blah blah. I rememberd that my wife and a few of my conservative friends haven't registered to vote recently, so I took several of her voter registration forms to get more Republicans registered. Take that Ms. Baiter.

My dad always said you learn something new everyday. Today I learned that NPR is listened to by a lot of big city liberals, and the lefties still haven't gotten over Gore losing.

I got Hate Mail

I got my first true vitriolic piece of hate mail today. Actually it was in my comments, and I'm glad to know I'm driving them cracy.

Read on, as it's not safe for the meed, or small children.

Great poet he is wrote me

Republicans are soulless, racist, blind and brainwashed hypocrites who love to spout off about state's rights and liberty until they come to the topic of homosexuality or abortion, who provide weapons to tyrants and train terrorists and will whore themselves to abusive multinational corporations all in the name of the Holy $$$.

Go fuck your sister or something, you inbred hick.

WASN'T THAT HILARIOUS PARODY?!? I am a talented comic!

New Blogs to point out

I thought I'd point out some new blogs that I've been reading.

First is SnazzyKat. She has a great, wonderfully designed site, plus her and her husband own cats, which is good.

The second is Wizgang Uniquely explosive.

Lastly is Minor Third

I found this interesting web-site, it's called Rate My Kitten.

And I guess I am not the only person on this planet who obsessively takes pictures of their cat.

Public School's Evil Nature

I was at a meeting yesterday at a public school, and we were talking about various programs and services they are offering. And one thing they discussed disturbed my greatly.

They were talking about a grant offered by the American Cancer society, and as part of it the promoted cirriculum in schools which indoctrinate kids in anti big business and anti big tobacco thought.

These kids are required to write their favorite restaurant pleading with them to go smoke free. It reminds me of a time when I was in school and we had to write President Reagan asking him to save the rainforests. It is not the school's right to push their left wing agenda on these kids. These children with their brains full of much are much too susceptible to this sort of thing, and it's got to stop.

And I also have a bone to pick with the American Cancer Society. This same group who works to keep teens off smoking (a noble goal) wants to take a grant from Kraft Foods to work on nutrition workshops. The Cancer Society said that if they took money from Kraft they would pull their funding because Kraft is owned by Altria, the parent company of Phillip-Morris, the tobacco company.

After seeing what sort of political agenda the American Cancer Society has, along with the threat of them pulling funding from already cash strapped non-profits leads me to think that I will no longer give money to these a-holes at the American Cancer Society.

Droopy Dog

Frequent visitors to The Nap Room know that if there is one thing I hate more than liberal democrats it's Arlen Specter, Republican senator from Pennsylvania.

This spineless turd has repeatedly voted against his fellow Republicans. He joined Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton in reducing the size of Bush's tax cuts in 2002.

He is most hated in my mind for his vote of "not proven, therefore not guilty" (according to Scottish Common law). His vote was the deciding Republican vote which stopped the GOP from having a moral victory by getting a basic majority on the vote of guilty or innocent.
From the Patriot News:

Unlike the other 99 senators who voted "guilty" or "not guilty" on Feb. 12, 1999, Specter criticized the Senate trial of Clinton. He said the House Republican impeachment managers had not presented the Senate with enough evidence to render a guilty verdict.

Specter said he would vote "not proven," a verdict allowed under Scottish Common Law. Senate staffers objected and said his vote might be recorded as "present."

So when Specter voted on the first article, he said, "not proven and therefore not guilty." Supreme Court Chief Justice William Rehnquist ruled that should be counted as "Not Guilty."

As the roll call on the second charge approached, Lott asked Specter how he would vote, according to "The Breach," a book about the impeachment process written by Peter Baker.

If Specter voted "not proven" without the clarifying addition of "not guilty," Senate Republicans would win a majority of 50-49 on the obstruction of justice charge.

Specter refused. He voted "not proven, therefore not guilty" again. The second count failed on a 50-50 vote.

Arlen Specter is a menance who must be stopped, and hopefully in the Republican primary GOP challenger Pat Toomey can do it.

Fish for Breakfast

Frank J. discussed, as did I about eating fish on Fridays during lent.

One thing which is quite peculiar, and I took part this Sunday, is eating fish for breakfast. Specifically eating Mackerel for breakfast. To many people, especially Catholics, nothing says good country breakfast like eggs over easy with potatoes and a side of Mackerel. Yumm.

Quite surprising is the fact that Mackerel is quite tasty. Slightly salty with a taste that says this is indeed fish.

It tastes somewhat like a cross between salmon and trout. My wife, who hates fish and dippy eggs especially got grossed out when I dipped my fish into my eggs.

When Goalies Fight

goalies fight.jpg I love Hockey. Hockey rules, and my favorite team is the Philadelphia Flyers.

The other day they were involved in a massively aggressive game with the evil Senators from Ottowa in which a total of 23 players were ejected, and an NHL record 213 penalty minutes were accrued. One player himself got 34 minutes of penalties.

It is especially groovy when goalies fight each other.

Kerry, you're so very...stupid

Lurch said on the campain trail that George Bush's presidency is full of broken promises:

From AP Wires

"George Bush is a walking contradiction and a walking barrel of broken promises," the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate said Saturday, speaking to several hundred supporters at a community college

Like what did he promise and not deliver?

Tax cuts? Promisided and delivered.

Education reform? Promised and delivered.

Perscription drug benefit for seniors? Promised and deliverd.

How about specifics Lurch?

Open the Windows

I really hate Windows. In my work I am the lone Mac in the world of Windows. I was able to get a Mac in my work because when I started my job I initially had to purchase my own computer for various accounting irregularities (the weirdness of working for a state owned university).

I bought a Mac because, well, Windows sucks. And I have no trouble using my OS X in an XP world. Every single file sent to me by my co-workers I can read, and I even impress them with my .mac on-line disk drive and .mac Calendar they can read on-line.

I do Have some trouble, however, but it's not my fault. I have had countless problems when I sent a basic file to them and they couldn't read it.

I've sent Jpegs to people; Some people couldn't read them. I've used the integrated ability to save things in PDF to send PDFs; Some people couldn't read them either. Even some of the Doc files I saved in MS Word gave people fits unless I saved it in Rich Text Format. I've even sent them zipped files using my Stuffit program, and they couldn't read a .zip file. What the heck is with that?

That's not even counting all the virus emails I've been receiving from theze bozos who don't understand the concept of not opening attached files from people they don't know.

It's not like I'm saving stuff in AppleWorks format or sending them a GarageBand file. These are basic computer files that they should read.

I think it's because Windows sucks.

When is enough enough?

While reading the MuNu blogs early this morning, I notices several blogs are no longer. One of my Favorites was Don at Anger Management; Gone. Then Back again.

Rachel Lucas is done blogging; Gone. I don't think we'll see here again.

The Bar is closed

There are countless others. Blogs who become daily reads for us, only to go away. What makes a person stop blogging? I blog because, well I can, and I like to talk and write. But also the ego thing comes in. I always try to up my readership because I want people to know what I have to say.

Right where I am, I couldn't imagine just giving up blogging, as of now it's my only outlet for my medium. If I didn't have this, I would bore my wife with my dissertations. I always have things to say, and blogging gives me a way to get all that stuff off my chest.

Since I don't have anything else to say, I think I'll share a gratuitous gun pic.

Logo Roundup

I have this beautiful iMac with the fancy screen, but I never move it. The only time I actually move it is when I show it to people. It can go in all these nice directions, up, down, left, or right, plus tilting up or down, but I never utilize it.

Note to self: Move my monitor everyday.

Take my governor....Please!!

There are a lot of names going around as possible running mates for Lurch as he prepares to pick his veep. John Edwards, Bill Richardson, and Hillary Clinton are some. Another is current Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell. This former head of the DNC would be an excellent choice for Luch. I urge him to pick Fast Eddie. His current approval rating here in PA is in the mid 30s, and his disapproal rating is about 45%. He is a typical Big City Liberal, being the former mayor of Philly.

Pennsylvanians are pessimistic about the future and none too happy with the governor, according to the latest Daily News/CN8 Keystone Poll.Gov. Rendell's approval ratings are the lowest since he took office in January 2003. Only 37 percent rate his performance as excellent or good. By contrast, Gov. Tom Ridge held a 61 percent excellent or good rating at a comparable point in his first term.And for the first time since 1995, more residents say things are "off on the wrong

Go ahead, commit political suicide Lurch, pick Fast Eddie, please!!

I know a murdurer. I sat next to him at dinner several times. I even rode in his car. He seemed like a nice enough guy. He was smart, funny, and very personable. He is in jail now, for killing his wife with a shotgun.

I knew him in my work, he did the same thing I did for a different county in Pennsylvania. At meetings where we would all get together I would see him, talk with him as some of our appointed tasks were similar and we wanted to share the results of our work.

Now, from what I hear he did this in passion. He got in a fight, grabbed the shotgun and pulled a Jayson Williams.

It's just strange that people you know, people you feel are good upstanding citizens are capable of horrible acts, and that you can never really trust anyone, because everyone is capabale of horrible acts.

There goes that Virus again

It seems I was sent the W32/Bagle.j@MM virus, repeatedly. The virus would like me to believe that my email has been disabled, and I had to install their attached .pif file to fix it.

Dear user, the management of mailing system wants to let you know that,

Our main mailing server will be temporary unavaible for next two days,
to continue receiving mail in these days you have to configure our free
auto-forwarding service.

Advanced details can be found in attached file.

First off, since I received like 10 of these today, that means that people I know got themselves infected, and their addresses compromised by these pain in the ass viruses.

How stupid can you be? How many times do they say "Don't Open suspicious attachments!"? It's like people who stick their finger in a light socket, and wonder why they got shocked.

Presidential Advertising

It seem lurch and the other shit throwers don't like that fact that President Bush had a picture featuring a scene from Sept. 11 in one of his ads. The picture was about a second or two, and was very tasteful.

What the hell do they expect him to do? It is one of the most important events in American history, and it is something we have to talk about. Part of the reason that all these pansy ass UN cow towers are getting their point heard so much is people want to forget what happened on Sept. 11th.

Plus they bash bush on the war on terror, but when he mentions what he's done as President in a uplifting, non-negative ad they get pissed.

I say bring on the Red Meat and expose Kerry for the flip floppin socialist he truly is.

Gun Grabber Update

Just for your information, the following fake Republicans voted FOR the assault weapons amendment to the gun liability bill, which caused it to die, furthering the liklihood that John Edwards type ambulance chasers will try to put gun makers out of business.

Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island
Susan Collins of Maine
Mike DeWine of Ohio
Peter Fitzgerald of Illinois
Judd Gregg of New Hampshire
Richard Lugar of Indiana
Gordon Smith of Oregon
Olympia Snowe of Maine
George Voinovich of Ohio
John Warner of Virginia

Alren Specter voted correctly as it is an election year.

Arlen Specter says: "Wait, I follow Scottish Law, none of that silly United States Constitution.

11:00 : Listen to "All Things Considered". Enjoy segment on Haliburton's raping of Iraq.

8:00 : Login to DU and join interesting discussion about how there are so many Zionists in the Bush administration.

9:00 : Have someone banned from the DU for brining up that Bush does have a pro African-American stand by having Rice and Powell as high level cronies.
Blasphemy!! Martin Luther King would be rolling in his grave!!

10:00 Watch a special encore of Real Time with Bill Mahr because Michael Moore is on it. He really laid into that Nazi Ann Coulter.

Water Water Every Where..once

From the AP:
Mars rover Opportunity has found evidence that the Red Planet was once wet enough for life to exist there, but the robot has not found any direct traces of living organisms, NASA (news - web sites) scientists announced Tuesday.

The question is where did the water go? I have three theories.

1. Michael Moore decided to take a bath. Enormous amount of water needed to cover his large body depleted Mars water supply.

2. Ted Kennedy likes his whiskey "on the rocks"; massive amount of water needed for ice depleted water supply.

3. Glenn Renyolds needed water to blend puppies and drown hobos.

The Gun Grabbers are at it Again

Senators Karl Marx, Vladimiris Lennin, Adulterours Lurch, and Drunken Bastard after shitting on the Constitution
In a 52-47 vote today, the Senate authorized reinstating the "assault weapons" ban. It was a rider on an important piece of legislation which protects gun makers and sellers from ambulance chasers like John Edwards from getting richer and exploiting sins of smackheads and other assorted vagants.

But the funny thing is, in passing it, they ultimately doomed it.

WASHINGTON — Senate Democrats gunning for a ban on assault weapons unexpectedly forced down a bill Tuesday that would have prevented gun manufacturers from liability after the bill's sponsor said the amendment made the measure too unpalatable.

The Senate voted 90-8 to defeat the bill that would deny victims the opportunity to sue gunmakers and dealers when their products are used in a crime. The vote followed a 52-47 vote to attach an amendment that would have renewed for 10 years the assault weapons ban (search) set to expire this year.

A Conservative Cartoon

This is from my weekly "Left Coast Report", courtesy of

"This Just In."

Actually, that's the title of a new animated comedy series that will debut Sunday, March 14 on Spike TV. Believe it or not, the thing leans to the right.

The show is the creation of producer and standup comedian Steve Marmel and Spike exec Kevin Kay.

The series follows a journalist and his friends as they explore news, politics and pop culture from a distinctly conservative perspective. Guess there are some conservative professionals brave enough to invade the enemy territory of Tinseltown after all.

To drive this point home, the lead character of the show, reporter Brian Newport, is so enamored with the Bush administration he sees Condoleezza Rice as a sex symbol.

The Left Coast Report hopes that folks left and right of center toon in to the show.

The Village

I just saw the trailer for a new movie by writer/director, M. Night Shyamalan. The writer/director behind movies such as "The Sixth Sense", "Unbreakable", and "Signs". His new movie is called "The Village". It is about a village in Covington, Pennsylvania, and the residents who deal with the beings which live in the surrounding woods.

You can view the trailer here.

It looks like it might be a pretty good movie. His movies usually are.

"The Village" opens in the US on July 30th.

A Concentration Camp

Kim Du Toit has a very moving post about his visit to Dachau. It is incredible to think that humans can do that to other people. Even wild dogs don't treat their fellow species with such hatred, torturing, killing, raping, and destroying lives.

I cried when I saw Schindler's List. It was a incredibly moving motion picture. But sitting here in a warm movie theater, or house, eating popcorn and emphathizing hardly seems right. The subject matter of the story is so hard to accept as reality, but reality is was. There was a man called Hitler, and he did terrible things.

One thing that Kim says, and I never really thought of it this way, is how beliddling it is to call Bush, Hitler. You've probably heard it. The hateful left loves to equate Bush to Hitler.

Kim says it better than I could:

What I care about is that by trivializing the issue, by using your absurd hyperbole, you dishonor the suffering and the loss suffered by the people who were victimized by the real Hitler. Your own illusory suffering at the hands of this Republican president is not only trivial, it is non-existent, and do not even think you can begin to equate the two.

I can take it further. Your grotesque equation of the two leaders is a profound exaggeration: and it's the same kind of gross exaggeration used by Hitler and his henchmen to inflate the "Jewish problem" into a manifest danger, whereby people could ignore the excesses of places like Dachau as being justified. In case that isn't clear enough to you, let me connect the dots. George W. Bush isn't using Hitlerian tactics, you are.

The Oscars: A Roundup

So the "Lord of The Rings" won 11 oscars last night. What is the deal with this movie? Maybe it's because I wasn't in Chess Club, or because I kissed a girl in high school. I just don't get the movie.

I watched the first one, I found it the most horribly boring movie I've ever seen. If the second and the third movies are anything like that, how did this movie win?

My pick for best movie, "Master and Commander: Far Side of The World" won only 2 oscars, but it wasn't up against Lord of The Rings.

There was only one really politically charged commend. Sean Penn said that "All actors know, besides there were no WMD..."

Well I am glad that Penn is a weapons expert. We need more weapons experts in Hollywood.
