A good walk spoiled

So I went golfing yesterday afternoon after work. I hadn't gone golfing in over 3 years, and I thought I needed some exercise. Walking a golf course is decent exercise, and it sure beats doing anything else around the house, so I dusted off the the ol' Big Bertha, and went over to White Birch.

Now I don't really consider myself a golfer. I find most golfers pretentious and annoying, but I do have my own clubs, shoes, and pull cart. I paid the $6.50 and went out to the 9 hole course.

Along the way I played decently well. I was hitting irons ok, and couldn't hit a wood to save my life. At the #5 hole I joined an elderly couple for the last few holes. They too hadn't gone golfing in a few years, and as it was the gentleman's birthday, they decided to go out.

I used to get really pissed off when I played when I was younger. I'm talking Happy Gilmore mad. But all that did was make me play worse, now I just say 'to hell with it'. If I make a good shot I just look at it as a chance to make a practice shot from the bunker or fairway.

After my first 9 holes, I went to continue and golf it again (as green fees allows you to play the 9 hole twice) and I came across the daily duffer as I call them.

The daily duffer is a person who spends all his hard earned money on golf equipment. He has top of the line footjoy shoes, and clothes. This guy had the fanciest pull cart I've ever seen, it had rubber tubeless tires, digital scorekeeper, clock, and all the do-dads. Unlike semi-annual duffers like me, who just swing their 9 iron to loosen up, this guy had a special headless club to warm his muscles.

He pulled out a new sleeve of what looked like Top Flite Magnums or something, and stepped up to the tee and managed to hit a crushing laughable tee shot, topping the ball, sending his $3 ball 25 yards.

Those are the type of golfers I hate, they are annoying and despite the fact that they golf as poorly as I, they think they are Gary Player just because they carry a full set of Gallaway Clubs.

Stupid asshole golfers.

Air America Sucks

Air Radio America continues to lose money. They have never gotten a decent number of listeners, and things look bleak for surviving past the election.

During an interview with nobodycares.com, Al Franken cites the reason for the failing Air America on the fact that they invited Michael Moore to an kick-off event, and he literally ate them out of house and home.

"Michael Moore came to our Chicago kickoff, and ate so much that we had to transfer funds form our operating budget to pay for the immense food and liquor bill"

Al Franken ads, "Michael Moore also ate one of our best producers when he accidentally got in the way of the cheese cart"

Rolling around in shit

Why do dogs like stinky stuff? Dogs smell anyways, but why do they like to do things which make them smell worse?

Whenever I and Oreo are out and about she has a tendancy to vanish for a half hour or so, and when she returns, she seems happier than usual, which makes me suspicious.

Sure enough I go to pet her and see this slimy stuff on her back. And it stinks. Like Shit. Because it is shit.

So I give her a bath, which she doesn't necessarily hate, but doesn't really love.

So the next day when we are outside, and I am mowing the weeds, or working in my garden, she disappears again, and the whole stinky cycle starts again.

What's the deal with shit and dogs rolling in it?

Michael Moore Hates America

moore-fatass-new.jpg Michael Moore is an American hating punk. Despite the fact that he is a great example of the American dream and very successful and rich, he hates America, and everything that the founding fathers built this country on.

Just take a look at some quotes about America, all of which he made while speaking outside America:

''They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet," Moore told Britain's Mirror newspaper recently, referring to his fellow citizens as a whole."

'You're stuck with being connected to this country of mine, which is known for bringing sadness and misery to places around the globe.''

''The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win.''

And when talking about the free market society we live in he has said, "capitalism is a sin" and "an evil system" , despite the fact that that "evil system" has made him rich, and allowed him to own two homes worth a conbined $3.5 million

Warewolves in Iraq

From the period of 1944 to 1948 a secret, pro-Nazi, fascist group of SS officers and German soldiers called "Werewolves" terrorized Allied sympathizers and allied soldiers. Using tactics which can only be described as guerrilla they posed a moderate security threat to the rebuilding of Germany. They often were dressed as civilians, and almost never fought as conventional soldiers. They frequently committed acts of violence not only against the Allied occupiers, but also against other Germans who they viewed as being anti-Nazi.

Allied-supported government leaders were assassinated including the American-supported and democratically elected mayor of Aachen, the first major German city to be liberated. The werewolves came to the house of the Mayor dressed as downed pilots and killed him when he came to the door.

In a 3-month period of 1945 there were 300 incidents of violence and sabotage in which the Werewolves were suspected. They blew up railroad tracks, schools, and in some cases attempted poisoning the food and liquor supply.

In a way to further their cause they also used media to their advantage. Using bootleg radio transmitters, pro-Nazi graffiti, and by dropping leaflets, they promoted the citizens of post-war Germany to rise up against the evil occupying forces of America, England, France, and the USSR.

Though the body count of Allied soldiers was light to non-existent, they did make the rebuilding of Germany a tougher job than it had to be. These Nazi sympathizers wanted a return to a statist, fascist Nazi led government.

Things eventually got better, but during the reign of the Werewolf citizens were terrorized and frightened to cooperate with the occupiers for fear of reprisal. This small, but dedicated, bunch of Anti-American insurgents did not want to see the end of the fascist Nazi ruling party that they were a part of. The ultimately knew that if Germany became a free state, all hopes of seeing their world of hate and genocide would come to an end. With freedom would come an end to the world they wanted to live in.

You can learn a lot from history. Just look at Iraq today. It took years for post-war Germany to be totally free of anti-coalition Werewolves, and we still have a military presence in Germany almost 60 years after the surrender. We won the war in just a few months, and have handed over sovereignty to the Iraqis. News was met with guarded optimism and calls to talk radio

I heard Ron Kuby of the Curtis and Kuby show today discuss how we have lost the war in Iraq. He says the continued attacks and sabotage by the insurgents have proven that we have lost. I say to Mr. Kuby that he has to look no further than the history of our own military post-war occupations to see that the road to instilling democracy in previously dictatorial countries is a bumpy one but it is one that can and must be traveled.

What we have done in Iraq is momentous. What we have done we have done faster, with less civilian casualties and less American soldiers killed than any other wary in American history.

And just like the rebuilding of Germany and Japan after World War II, the naysayers are saying it can't be done. But history has proven them wrong 60 years ago, and history will again judge them as wrong this time.

I thought I'd share this quote from Ayn Rand:

The goal of the “liberals”—as it emerges from the record of the past decades—was to smuggle this country into welfare statism by means of single, concrete, specific measures, enlarging the power of the government a step at a time, never permitting these steps to be summed up into principles, never permitting their direction to be identified or the basic issue to be named. Thus, statism was to come, not by vote or by violence, but by slow rot—by a long process of evasion and epistemological corruption, leading to a fait accompli. (The goal of the “conservative” was only to retard that process.) -----Ayn Rand,

Go screaming out of the room

In a review of Fat Michael Moore's documentary lies, uber-left winger Roger Ebert says:

Although Moore's narration ranges from outrage to sarcasm, the most devastating passage in the film speaks for itself. That's when Bush, who was reading My Pet Goat to a classroom of Florida children, is notified of the second attack on the World Trade Center, and yet lingers with the kids for almost seven minutes before finally leaving the room. His inexplicable paralysis wasn't underlined in news reports at the time, and only Moore thought to contact the teacher in that schoolroom -- who, as it turned out, had made her own video of the visit. The expression on Bush's face as he sits there is odd indeed.

What the hell was Bush supposed to do, run out of the room screaming "Children, you're all going to die!! RUN!!! Death is upon us!!!!!"

Part of any President's job is to console the country, give comfort in bad times, and most importantly don't let them see you sweat.

It would have been inappropriate in the minutes right after learning of the 9/11 attacks to panic or even say anything in front of young children who were too young to comprehend what the implication of that day meant. Giving a sense of normalcy was paramount in that time. Now if he was taking to a bunch of senators, donors, or military people it would have been different.

If Bush would have said something in front of the children these same socialist America Haters like Michael Moore would have chastized him for scaring the children.

So I suggest Fatso and Used-to-be fatso shut up.

Call off the Search

Whenever I listen to an album I've never heard before, especially if it's from an artist which is new to me I close my eyes and allow the music to set me into a mood. I allow my mind to wander and form a picture based on the music. Every album has a story to tell; not only in the lyrics, but also in the way it is presented. Call Off The Search, by Kate Melua is no exception.

When I listened to Call Off The Search I felt soothed and relaxed. In my mind's eye I was sitting at a small table in a darkened smoke filled jazz club, drinking distilled spirits at 4 in the morning while a soothing rain fell outside. I had pictures of the New York jazz underground and beat poets bearing black shirts.

Overall, the album is bluesy and warm. Her sultry voice reminiscent of Bernadette Peters or Ertha Kitt coos in the show tune like "My Aphrodisiac is You". Her voice is soft, warm, and somewhat mournful in "The Closest Thing To Crazy", and is youthful and full of life.

The instrumentation is simple. Katie plays guitar and sings vocals. She is often accompanied by tinkling piano, guitar, and muted trumpet. She is also backed a small orchestra in songs like "Faraway Voice" as well as in the title song, "Call Off the Search".


Only 19 years old, this Republic of Georgia born and British educated singer is the future of the Blues/Jazz genre. She is already making a name for herself and is being compared to other young, attractive, and talented artists like Norah Jones.

Her style is much different than Norah's. While Norah goes for the sultry seductive blues, Katie is more showy and playful. Like Norah though, she does stick mostly to songs penned by others. Ten of the songs on this album are written by others, while two are her very own. "Penguins and Cats" is lovely song with great vocals and instrumentation. "Faraway Voice", her other self-penned song, is more mainstream and reminded me of Jewel, with echoed haunting lyrics and violin backing.

The best tracks are on the first half of the album, as the more pop-mainstream songs at the end of the album seem weaker compared to outstanding jazzy blues selections, but are also very good.

Though not as refined as other more established artists, Call Off The Search is still a delightful debut album from this up-and-coming talent. She is only 19, and with age comes wisdom and life experience which will only help this talent and sculp her and her work into something magnificant. I wouldn't be surprised if just a few brief years down the road we see Katie accepting an award for best album or artist.

Bang goes my cannnon

With the Forth of July fast approaching comes the need to make some noise. The most popular means of noise making was previously fireworks. Though fireworks are nice, the ones which are really fun are also illegal. What to do?

Well, I turned to a company located right here in Pennsylvania, just over the mountain from me in Bethelehem, PA. The Conestoa Company's Big Bang Cannons

These cannons do make a whole lot of noise, and are totally legal. Powered by Bangsite (Calcium Carbide) and water, and a flint, they produce an incredibly loud explosion sound which is safe and fun

What happens is you put a few ounces of water in the cannon's cavity, and put a small amount of bangsite in there with it. When calcium carbide hits water it makes a moderatly explosive gas. You wait abouto 15 seconds and push the sparker, and BANG!! A great way to celebrate the holiday.

Conestoga offers many varieties. I have two. The big 15FC field cannon, their largest, loudest, most expensive, and best seller. It produces a 120 decible bang about as loud as a .45 ACP handgun. 15fc2.gif
My other cannon is a brass gunboat. Though it is only about 7 inches long, it is also very loud. It produces a bang about 100 decibles. Definatly fun. 9by.gif

Another beheading

From Newswires

BAGHDAD, Iraq — A South Korean businessman held hostage in Iraq was beheaded Tuesday, in spite of promises of an extended deadline on his execution, according to Al-Jazeera television.

The report couldn't immediately be confirmed, and Al-Jazeera declined to say how it got its information. The Arab television station said it would have more information at 1 p.m. EDT.

I think we should send Michael Moore over there to try to reason with them.

Moore Diet (ie. Photoshop)

Take a look at this photo of Michael Moore in his poster for his documentary lies f911-home-interim_03.jpg
Now compare it to the picture taken of him when he got his award at the Cannes America Haters film festival. moore.jpg

What I want to know is what kind of massively powerful photo editing tool has been used to slim down this fat fuck. Now, I admit, I'm a little chubby, but this guy is Stay-Puffed Marshmallow man big. He refers to the Michelin Man as "slim".

How does you garden grow?

Thought I'd share a few pics of around the house. My garden specificially.


Here is a picture of the garden. It's still a little early in the year. In this picture you can see the pumpkin plant, tomatoe and pepper plants. The hot pepper plants alrady have nice sized fruit on them.

In this picture you can see our red and white cabbage plants. In the back you should be able to see some of our peas and beans. Way in the back you can see our 70 potatoe plants. HMMMM Carbs.

More Guns More Fun

From a Foxnews.com story:

LOS ANGELES  — Shooting for sport is becoming more and more popular across the country.

Along with Pilates and windsurfing, clay target shooting (search) and handgun target shooting (search) are some of America's fastest growing sports. Some 20 million Americans participate in recreational gun activities.

Those who shoot clays call it "golf with guns."

"It is being looked at more as a sport and recreation, it is not all about hunting," said Rick Matulich of the San Diego Shotgun Sports Association.

Target shooting dates back to the 14th century, and it became an Olympic sport in 1896. And while some worry about recreational gun safety, the government says a person is more likely to get hurt riding a bike, playing basketball or swimming.


Shotgunning games are great fun. There are two popular types of games, Sporting clays, and trap shoots.

Trap Shoots are games where you stand at one location and shoot 100 "pigeons", clay disks which fly through the air like a frisbee. One comes out at a time when you yell pull. The peson who shoots the most out of 100 wins.

Sporting Clays are where you go through a course, stopping at a number of stations to shoot two different pigeons which come out simultaneously. The person who shoots the most wins.

I myself am a great fan of the trap shoot, but intend to try sporting clays very soon. I also shoot clays out of backyard when I can't get to the range.

Why we fight!

I'm a little angry right now, so excuse me whilest I vent.

The 'Religion of Peace' has struck again. Further showing the infinite compassion typical of the loving compassionate religion which is Islam the Islamofascists have beheaded American Paul Johnson.

Click here, but be warned a graphic image.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — Gruesome photographs of the beheading of Paul M. Johnson Jr. (search), the American contractor taken hostage by terrorists last weekend, were posted along with news of his killing on an Al Qaeda (search) Web site Friday.

The Arab satellite network Al-Arabiya broke the news of the execution, and Al Qaeda also reported on its Web site that the members who captured the Lockheed Martin (search) employee had killed him.

The Al Qaeda kidnappers had threatened to behead Johnson, a longtime resident of Saudi Arabia (search), by Friday if certain terrorist prisoners were not released by Saudi authorities.

And now for the people who think we should try to reason with these savages:

How can you reason with people like this? When a savage rabid animal is about to bite your head off, or kill you family, do you try to pet it an make nice? NO!! You blow its fucking head off!

I say a thousand eyes for an eye. They will rue the day. We must win.

Kill em all.

story.video.2.jpg (CNN) -- Al Qaeda gunmen posted a videotape online Tuesday showing a man who identified himself as Paul Johnson, an American who works for Lockheed Martin and has been missing in Saudi Arabia since Saturday.

The gunmen threatened to kill the man within 72 hours unless their demands are met.

Do you know what I would do if they did anything remotely similar to Paul what they did to Nick Berg, I think we should douse the whole Abu Grhiab prison in gasoline and burn the fuckers alive.

If they want to fuck with us and terrorize us, we should return it on them 100 fold.

Can't Understand Normal Thinking

So there is this football coach, Gary Barnett. He coaches at the University of Colorado. He recently referred to a woman who tried out for the team as a "cunt". What an ass.

But wait, it gets worse.

From Colorado Daily

The Associated Press referred to it Tuesday as a "vulgar anatomical reference." The Oxford English Dictionary defines it as "vulgar slang for a woman's genitals," and as "an unpleasant or stupid person." Its etymological origin is believed to be Germanic.

CU President Elizabeth Hoffman's reference to the word "cunt" as a "term of endearment" during questioning for a civil case against the university spawned the wrath of local women's advocates and prompted water-cooler discussions aplenty Tuesday.

So here is an well educated woman who has made a place for herself standing up for calling a woman a "cunt", presumably because the football team brings in so much money.

Now I don't think he should have been fired over this event, but the fact that a woman who I would assume would stand up for women's rights making excuses for saying derogatory things about a woman who not only tried out for the team, but accuses some male football players of sexually assaulting her.

This university president is a sell-out.

A long and winding road

From Foxnews.com

WASHINGTON — Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (search), D-Mass., appearing Wednesday with law professors who want Congress to consider impeaching President Bush over the Iraqi prisoner abuse (search), declined to endorse the idea himself. Instead, Kennedy opted for a political plug.

The best way to solve things "is to elect John Kerry," said Kennedy, appearing beside two Harvard professors at a news conference upstairs from his Senate office.

Ok, just like the time that Howie Dean said he found it interesting that people thought President Bush knew about 9/11 before it happened, but downplayed actually pushing the idea.

So meet with a bunch of smelly hippity dippity law professors who want George Bush impeached, but then say he doesn't want to push the idea. Typical ploys of the hate-America left.

I suggest that Ted Kennedy drink a bottle of scotch (a light Kennedy Breakfast) and take a fast drive on a windy mountian road.

Coke Rules

In an attempt to hit the maket of people who, like me, love regular soda, but not the 140 calories per can, and hate the taste of the zero calorie diet sibling, both Coke and Pepsi have come up with low sugar and low carb varieites of their colas.

I just recently had a chance to try both Coke C2 and Pepsi Edge. Both promise 1/2 the carbs and sugar of the regular cola, but with all the taste.

Both of the sodas do so by combining the standard corn syrup with artifical sweetners such as aspartame (Equal) and sucralose (Splenda).

How are they?


Coke C2 looks just like the real thing, with a smooth crisp cola taste. It tastes almost exactly like regular Coke. So much so, in fact, that unless you were told it wasn't regular coke you wouldn't tell the difference.

C2 has no noticable aftertaste and goes down smooth. It is somewhat less spritzy then regular coke and might appear to be just a wee bit flat compared to regular Coke, but not much so that it takes away from the taste.

Pepsi Edge, on the other hand, seems like it was rushed to market. And it was. Pepsi originally intended to introduce their lower carb version in early July, but was forced to move up release due to the June 11th release of C2.

Edge appears identical to regular Pepsi, but falls flat on taste. The flavor seemed weak, somewhat flat and not sweet enough compared to reglar Pepsi. It also had a much more noticable diet soda flavor than C2, it also had a very lingering aftertaste, like the time I ate a packet of Sweet and Low.


All in all, I would have to say that while Coke did a good job to soda junkies everywhere, Pepsi failed. Again.

If you don't like diet sodas, but are forced to due to calorie restrictions, I suggest you try Coke C2. It has almost 100% of the taste of cola, with half the sugar, and half the carbs.

My dad told me the other day while watching my wife cut my hair, that I am lucky. Lucky because I still have hair. At 28, he was half way to having Queball as a new nickname.

My wife says that it really depends on your maternal grandfather. If that is the case, I am screwed too.

I recently uncovered a picture of us, taken when I was a wee little lad. According to this picture I should be thinning soon, to join the ranks of the bald.

I visited a new store, it is called Cigars International. It is a very nice brick and mortar store in Bethlehem, PA. Good selection, and decent prices. Daily buy 5 get 6th free specials.

They had that one cigar that was talked about here a week or so ago which comes in a bottle of cognac.

They also had a huge selection of Gurkha Cigars.

I also found out they do mail order

I just thought I'd share it. If you get to Bethlehem, visit them.

In walks Elliot Ness

incorruptibles01.jpg Sometimes on Sunday, when it's raining or an important game is on the TV, I head over to the gun range to have a beer, eat a sausage sandwich and hang out. It's a nice bar. It's quiet and limited mostly to members of the club. Every Sunday they feature different menu items. Sometimes it's a sandwich, sometimes it's clams. Bottles of Yuengling are a buck as are all cans and bottles.

The trouble is, this bar is a speakeasy. They have no liquor license. If you know anything about Pennsylvania you'll know the Liquor Control Board doesn't stand for that.

Well, after 54 years of operating under the radar as a speakeasy, the gun club was raided last night.

The State Cops came barging in and made everyone leave. They confiscated the beer and the money and fined the bartenders $1,000 each.

I'm just glad they didn't come in when they had poker tables set up. That would have been really bad.

Now I know they broke the law, but it's a stupid law. The reason they didn't have a liquor license is because there were no liquor licenses to buy. The LCB is ironfisted in how they regulate liquor licenses. Some of their laws are draconion and stupid. Plus they are expensive. Very expensive.

The board of directors at the LCB are mostly a bunch of tea-toatlers who really don't like liquor and beer sales, but know it's great tax revenue. So just like cigarettes, they keep it around for the revenue but make it hard for stores to sell it; so much so that many bars which have been around for years and years are just closing up rather than put up with the LCB.

This is so much typical of the hypocrisy of many governments, especially Pennsylvania. They are against drunkeness, but promote buying alcohol in their state owned liquor stores. In Pennsylvania you can't gamble, but they promote their lottery. Cigarettes are horrible if you listen to them, but will never outlaw them entirely because of the needed tax revenue.

Fad Alert

To me, the Atkins diet stuff is a big fad. Just like the mass hesteria and fear of Eggs, Cholesterol, Scarsdale Diet, Low Fat, and Jane Fonda workouts were.

Now, as the bright forward thinker I am, I wish to point out a new fad sure to sweep then nation. Jesus Approved food.


From Foxnews.com

SHELBY, N.C.  — The Rev. George Malkmus often preaches about how he believes the world of proper eating began — or, in his opinion, vegan. "The Lord gave us everything we need in the Garden of Eden: fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds," the preacher-turned-diet adviser said in an interview at Hallelujah Acres, his North Carolina headquarters. "That's why we call the way we eat the 'Hallelujah Diet.' We celebrate its true creator."

Malkmus's diet is one of a batch of Bible-based eating plans flooding bookstores and health food stores. Last summer's "What Would Jesus Eat?" by Dr. Don Colbert, encourages eating non-animal-derived "living foods" and eschewing most "dead" or processed foods.

I can just imagine it. Instead of low carb lables, you will see "Jesus sponsored" or "Jesus Approved".

This diet stuff is getting out of hand. That's why I eat what I want and then just buy bigger pants.

The Stepford Wives

From The Louisville Channel

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Some people are saying the way Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice are portrayed in an ad for the new "Stepford Wives" film is distasteful, even outrageous.

The spot shows an image of Rice made to look nude from the waist up, and a picture of Clinton that morphs into what looks like a cookie-baking Stepford wife.

The pictures move across the screen very quickly, but they caught the eye of a Kansas City woman, who recorded the spot to make sure of what she was seeing.

Becky Reynolds said when she taped and watched the ad again, she "realized it was even worse" than what she'd suspected.

"It's just inappropriate, and it needs to be stopped," Reynolds said.


I don't think it's anything too serious. It's kinda funny. It's only really in one or two frames. If it weren't for TIVO or Dishplayers we probably wouldn't be hearing about it.

More than likely it was some intern at the advertising agency decided to be Mr. Subliminal and put this into the ad.

Double Standard Alert

Well Reagan hasn't even been buried yet, the state funeral isn't until this Friday, and already the alphabet news channels are tiring of the Reagan coverage.

From The NY Post:

June 9, 2004 -- DAN Rather and Tom Brokaw work for different networks but agree one thing — coverage of Ronald Reagan's death has been excessive, they say.

"Even though everybody is respectful and wants to pay homage to the president, life does go on," Rather told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"There is other news, like the reality of Iraq," said the "CBS Evening News" anchor. "It got very short shrift this weekend."

Moxie puts it into words very well

Hmm, three days since the death of Ronald Reagan and it's too much coverage, but weeks and weeks since Abu Ghriab prison 'scandal' and they are still covering it.

Jeremy Sivits has already been found guilty and is in jail, and they are still talking about the prison abuse 'scandal'.

Double Standard?

Thank you Easter Bunny for pumping my gas

Hmm. Not much from the media today about a very good thing which happened.

First in Arabic and then in English, Prime Minister Iyad Allawi said in his inaugural address to the Iraqi people last Tuesday that "I would like to record our profound gratitude and appreciation to the U.S.-led international coalition, which has made great sacrifices for the liberation of Iraq."

In his own remarks, President Ghazi al-Yawer said: "Before I end my speech, I would like us to remember our martyrs who fell in defense of freedom and honor, as well as our friends who fell in the battle for the liberation of Iraq."

Not grateful my ass....

And then:

The U.N. Security Council (search)  on Wednesday unanimously voted for a U.S. resolution backing the transfer of sovereignty to Iraq's new government, which President Bush deemed a "catalyst for change."

The resolution details the powers and the limitations of the new interim Iraqi government that will assume power on June 30. It authorizes the U.S.-led multinational force to remain in Iraq to help ensure security but gives the Iraqi government the right to ask the force to leave at any time.

Why don't we hear all this trumpted from the alphabet networks? Why isn't this good news all around? This is what we've wanted all along, an "international coalition".

Also, I paid $1.89 for gas today. Whoo hoo!!

World War 2 Weekend

I went to the World War Two weekend at the Mid Atlantic Air museum in Reading, PA on Sunday, and thought I'd share some pictures.

Here is me and a P-51-D Mustang.

Sides of WW2 planes often had colorful paintings

As you can see at this GI club, they don't want Japs.

This is "FIFI" the B-29. The same type of plan which bomed Hiroshima

This is a B-17 as it flew over to the delight of the crowd.

History has proven him wrong

A common theme of mine, and something I strongly believe in is that the modern Democratic party and the majority of the current liberal movement have been, and continue to be on the wrong side of history.

In the case of Ronald Reagan, history has shown that he helped tear apart the communist Soviet Union, making the world a safer place. Millions have been freed from the shackles of Communism with a lot due to President Reagan's persistence in ridding the world of Communism.

Many of the fundamental ideas he held are similar to our current President. President Bush, just like Reagan, believes the enemy he is fighting is an 'evil empire', one that we as a just nation must fight.

President Reagan, just like Bush does now, believed that it is the role of The United States to plant the seed of democracy throughout the world. Doing so will only make the world a safer place.

But people like John Kerry were then on the wrong side of history, as I believe that they are again now on the wrong side of history. They don't see the big picture of what we are doing. They don't see now that by planting Democracy in a middle eastern Muslim nation we are creating feedom, a freedom which will make a safer place for us and our children.

Just look at this memo from Senator Kerry's office from the Reagan era. Was he right? No.

Ding Dong Democratic Underground America Haters

Many Liberals hate it when we call them America haters. Ann Coulter even wrote a book on the treasonous nature of the American Left. Case in point:

From CNN:

Former President Ronald Reagan's health is deteriorating, according to sources familiar with the situation.

The 93-year-old former president had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease about a decade ago and began a retreat from public view.

According to sources familiar with the situation, the White House has been told Reagan's death could happen in "weeks or months."

Sad news. Sad when any President dies. Though I did not much care for Clinton's policies, I would still be deeply saddened if/when he dies. Hell, I even was sad when Hillary's dad died. Human compassion comes naturally to the right.

But that doesn't stop the folks over at DU from having a dance on his grave party. Just read some of the posts:

----Only better would be if he croaked after Kerry is sworn-in.
I will be having a "ding dong the witch is dead" party when he goes.
2nd worst president ever, with * in first place for that title.

----An in the case of Nancy, Im sorry but she deserves every single thing she has had to deal with over these past 20 years. My Father -in-law just passed away last month after having Alzheimer's for the past 10 years so I have a pretty good understanding of whats involved. Yeah, it is a living hell not only for the person but for those in the family. I'll say it again, she got everything she deserved.

----So he gets no special treatment from me. I will have a bottle of Jack ready to celebrate that fucker's death. The world will be a better place without that fascist fucker's presence to soil it.

Fuck anyone who says I lack compassion. The world should rejoice at the death of tyrants and tools. I save my compassion for those he fucked over, and all of the ones his disciples have fucked over, or anyone who is sympathetic to fascists and fascism.

Reagan will die, just like everyone else does. Where is it written that rejoicing in the inevitable is bad, especially when you consider what foul vermin he was?

The only thing that will sadden me about his death is the fucking lionization from the media. You will witness the biggest whitewashing of a president's life and career not seen since JFK.

Fuck Reagan, his supporters, his sympathizers, and his miserable existence upon the planet. Piss on his grave.

What fucking assholes. They should name DU the Fuckwhit Underground. These people don't care about America. If you did you would sometimes do against what you peronally believe for the greater good of the country.

Their hatered for Bush is so white hot, that they would run America into the ground just to see him fail.

All I can say is that when Bush does win re-election over Kerry, it will be intersting to see how the left will totally implode.

They hate Ronal Reagan. They think he was a horrible President. WTF? All he did was lead us out of a horrible economy left over from the Peanut Farmer, end communism, and restore the pride this country lacked in the 1960s and 1970s.

These halfwits over at DU are the red diaper babies of the hippy communist sympathizers of the 1960s. These people are the intellectually elite, hate America types who secretly cheer at every soldier's death. They love countries like France and Germany because of their commitment to the failed institution of socialism.

They are lazy people who want a socialist society so they can continue to not contribute to society but still reap the rewards those of us who do work for get.

These people are a danger to this country. They are traitors, treasonous scumbags, sick with hate and disdain for those of us who work for a living.

Time and time and time again history has shown them on the wrong side of history. History will again show them as soulless, loveless, and devoid of any real clear strategy to continue to make this country a place of bounty, where anyone can become great.

Even a peanut farmer.

Gillette M3 Power: A Review

300.jpg I just purchased the new Gillette M3 Power razor after hearing a lot of buzz (from people, not the razor). I used it last night, and thought I'd give a reviw.

The razor, very similar to the Gillette Mach 3, is slightly larger than it's cousin as it needs room for the AAA battery which power the micro motor which is intended to give a closer, more comfortable shave.

When the button is pressed a soft hum comes from the whole razor, while at first a little scary that you are holding 3 vibrating blades against your precious face, when you start shaving you hardly notice the vibration.

The blades and shave head are also new, with improved blades which are supposed to stay sharper longer, along with a green aloe strip for lubrication.

I have to say that the shave was a very comfortable and close shave. Usually I have to shave after a shower to soften my stubble, but with this razor I just lathered up with my Clubman Shave Cream and immediately shave off 2 days worth of stubble.

The shave was incredibly comfortable, and even the hard to reach and shave areas around my jaw were easily taken care of. Though I usually don't get razor burn, this shave seemed even more comfortable than the Mach Three.

Though I only shaved once, I have to say from my experience the M3 Power was an extermely close, comfortable shave. The humming blades do as advertised and literaly make your face hair stand up on end for a close comfortable shave.

Jesus W. Bush

George Bush is the man of the hour, and is a great man, as this picture proves.

Check out a new blog I've found. Moxie, especially if you are into Ann Coulter types. That is whip smart blonde conservative women.

She even was a liberal, for one day

It's only June

reg03_large.jpg It's only June, and already the annual over-hyping of Donovan McNabb has begun.

This time it may backfire on McNabb. After the Rush Limbaugh comments on the media coverage of Donovan McNabb the media seemed very quick to blame his recievers for dropped passes and interceptions.

We'll see what Donovan does with Terrel Owens as a wideout. Probably nothing as usual.

Tenet Resigns

r1873742707.jpg "When I get nervous I put my hands in my armpits and then smell them like this!" George Tenet resigns for 'personal' reasons. Well, he was under fire for some of the failures of his department during the months and years leading up to 9/11

Al Gore who was immediately available for comment said that he was glad that his insane ramblings calling for Tenet and others to resign were actually noticed.

"It is good to see that I am not totally marginalized, and that I actually have more say in this administration then I ever had with what's his face"

Let them eat pork

Frank has a good idea on how to play the same game as the terrorists.

What we need to do is get some of these terrorists and then not let a word out what happened to them. Then, one day Al-Jazeera will get a video on it with one of the theorists reading a written a statement saying, "The American have treated me well until now, when they are blowing me up." Then he'll be like, "Wait a sec! Is this ri..."


Then pigs run on screen and eat the remains.

I would then add, that we should make the other prisoners eat the pig. From what I know they don't like to eat pork, and eating the pork from a pig which ate their friend would suck for them.

Or better yet, we can drop them off somewhere in Appalacia. Have them go on a river voyage down a river before the whole area floods because they are making a dam downstream. This after they stop off and play banjo with a little bald kid, if you get my drift.

Smoking Nazis for about the bazillionth time

From Foxnews.com

It's a classic movie scenario — two sexy stars rip each other's clothes off, get busy and then later light up a couple of cigarettes in bed.

Such a charged cinematic scene could earn a film an R-rating — because of the smoking.

Wha happened?

It goes on:

Anti-smoking activists want films with smoking in them to be given an R-rating. Most lawmakers have said they'd be satisfied if movie ratings included advisory information about smoking in films like they do for foul language, sexual content and violence. Meanwhile, movie lobbyist Jack Valenti is defending Hollywood's right to have characters light up without interference.

Why do these asshole activists want to do this? These are almost certainly the same people who complain about the alleged civil liberty violations by George Bush, think partial birth abortion is okay, and should be allowed, and are for gay marriage. But they are against smoking. They claim to be for equality, civil liberties, except for things THEY disagree with.


I think I'll go into their headquarters and light up a big Churchill.

Late Memorial Day entry

I saw ABC news last night, and it featured two soldiers who were injured in Iraq. One had his leg amputated, and the other had numerous surgeries to reconstruct his jaw and face after most of it was shattered.

They both said after their stay in the VA was over, they wanted to return to Iraq and to their units. They said the job there is too important.

That is getting lost right now in this politicizing of the war. We are doing the right thing, and the brave men and women deserve some thanks, and we should remember the ones who died to protect our right to disagree, and hate each other like it appears we do now.
