I Know, I Know... It's Tuesday.

I was busy, okay. So get off my back.

I'm going to have to get serious for a moment because I heard something on the radio this morning that has to be shared. The local AM station I listen to (KDWN AM 720) has a morning personality named Hart Kirch. Hart is a self described 'self-thinking contrairien', which is simply defined as 'lefty moonbat'. I listen only out of morbid curiosity and to fuel arguements with the liberal crazies.

This morning, Hart said something I cannot believe he would say, even for a liberal. When talking about President Bush's meeting today with veterans, he stated, "Why won't he talk to real Americans?". What?! 'Real American' now means someone who hasn't served their country?

I get his meaning but I think Mr. Kirch needs to realize what the military is. I was very lucky to be able to serve with a diverse crew of men and women on board the USS George Washington CVN-73. When you spend 6 months on deployment, you get to see a good sampling of the 5000 member crew and even get to know them personally. One thing you will never know, though, is their political affiliation.

Political parties mean very little to the military. You support your president, regardless of what you think of him or his policies. Perhaps it is true that veterans and military are primarily conservative, but now you have to ask why that is.

I have seen what life is like in Turkey, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Croatia, Italy, and Spain. I have seen cultures that require women to cover their faces, arms, and legs. I have seen people so poor they lie, cheat, and steal just to live. I have seen places where police brutality is an everyday reality that is not just tolerated, but expected. I know the meaning of freedom. How precious it is. Why it must be defended. And how valuable a gift it is to the people of Iraq. I am a 'real American' and for that reason, I am conservative.

My Apologies.

I'm sorry I didn't link these posts earlier. I didn't realize it's make an apology day.

JimmyB, the Conservative UAW Guy has an apology for Cindy Sheehan and her lefty friends.

FMragtops from FMragtops Spews has an apology for leaving his readers.

FrankJ from IMAO doesn't apologize for bad Haiku. He should.

That's all for now. Sorry there's not more. Sorry for being sorry.

Wonder Why They Call Them 'Cheeseheads'?

Ah, Wisconsin. Home to agriculture, cheese, and illegal immigrants. The Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) is making it possible for illegal aliens to get mortgages. Why steal a home, when you can buy one, right?

They are making the old requirement of having a social security number obsolete by allowing applicants to use their individual taxpayer identification numbers (I-TINS) instead. The I-TINS are assigned by the IRS to illegal immigrants to allow them to pay federal income tax. How many of these are assigned (tons), and how many pay (nobody)?

Want to take a guess as to who supported this? Would you be surprised if it was Democratic state Rep. Pedro Colon?

"It's money earned, taxes paid, families need a home. It's that simple."
It's illegal, it's illegal, it's illegal. It's that simple. Let's see what WHEDA has to say about helping illegal aliens:

"We are not the immigration police. In fact, the IRS won't even allow us to inquire about the status of people who have I-TIN numbers," said WHEDA Executive Director Antonio Riley.
Just imagine the voice of Schultz from Hogan's Heroes while reading that. "I know nothing!"

Evil Glenn's Summer Camp

(A filthy lie)

School is about to start and my kids are finally ready to be picked up from summer camp. The bus seems to be taking it’s time, as it is half an hour late. Finally it arrives and families anxiously await their young ones to run to them with open arms.

What’s this? The bus seems to be empty, short of one person. The doors open and down steps comes… No, it couldn’t be… Sure enough, there he is in all his evil glory: Glenn Reynolds.

“Evil Glenn! Where are my kids?!”, I demand.

“Your kids? No, they are mine now. I have them in my secret lair scanning the blogosphere for me. I keep them working late into the nights, force feeding them puppy shakes to give them energy. All links will be mine! I will be on top again! Muahahaha!”

“You won’t get away with this!”

“Too late, I already have. I’m teaching them to kill hobos and brainwashing them into enjoying the fine nuances of penguin porn. Your son, in particular, is quite eager to learn the robot.”

“Noooooo!”

“Indeed!”

There it is, people. Glenn Reynolds wants your children to help him in his evil plot to usurp Michelle Malkin. Lock your doors and windows and keep your kids off of the internet.

Instapundo Delenda Est!

Roberts Facing Critcism

Who didn't see this coming? Sen. Dianne Feinstein opens her mouth and what comes out? That's right, crap.

Feinstein added she would find it "very difficult" to vote to confirm anyone "whom I knew would overturn Roe v. Wade,"
The left wingers are already beefing up to attack Roberts on his term in the Reagan administration.

Earlier Wednesday, the liberal advocacy group People for the American Way came out against the nomination, saying Roberts' record shows he would "undermine Americans' rights and freedoms" and could shift the balance of the high court to the right for generations.
What is it the 'People for the American Way' does anyway? They undermine Americans' rights and freedoms. Too bad for you if the court moves to the 'right'. Maybe we will have direct interpretation of the constitution now.

The Wheels on the Bus Go Blah, Blah, Blah.

Looks like the infamous Cindy Sheehan will be going mobile. She returned to her followers on wednesday, who promptly woke back up, picked up their signs and started chanting again.

When Sheehan arrived at the campsite, she saw a large banner depicting her son's face. She sobbed and said she felt ill.
Yet she ignores these pangs of conscience and continues on.

Of course Joe Wilson has to hop on the band wagon. Once again he bends the media's ear toward his moonbat rantings.

"The Bush White House and its right-wing allies are responding to Cindy Sheehan and the military families' vigil in central Texas in the same way that they always respond to bad news — by unleashing personal attacks and smears against her," Wilson said in a statement released Wednesday.
I'm just continuing to support OUR president. I'd do the same if a democrat was in office. Don't believe me? Get one elected. LOL! Honestly, I was taught that we must be united if we are to prevail. Guess that message didn't get to Sheehan and her troupe.

The question now is whether the bus she is taking to Washington D.C. will be running on the oil that Bush apparently 'stole' from Iraq? And can I hitch a ride to work? I can't afford gas.

Update:Evil Glenn at It's a Pundit has a picture of the bus.

The Non-Smoking Section

Northeastern states are putting restrictions on power plant emissions. This one hits close to home for me. I work in the electric generating industry and thus, have been expecting this to come for some time now.

The northeast states have primarily coal-fired power plants. Emissions of concern are oxides of sulfur, oxides of nitrogen, and carbon monoxide. Placing restrictions on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is going to cause a lot of headaches in the power production industry.

The problem? There is no easy way to remove CO2 from exhaust gas. This means there will be no more fossil fuel power plants built. I'm guessing they won't want to switch to nuclear power since people seem to be afraid of having reactors in their backyard. The hydroelectric sites are pretty well tapped out. Other alternatives such as solar and wind just won't cut it. So capacity is going to drop and what about cost?

The Times said the emission controls could result in higher energy prices, possibly offset by subsidies and support for the development of new technology that would be paid for with the proceeds from the sale of emission allowances.
The northeast is looking at the possibility of a power crisis that will make California look like a burnt out light bulb. Emissions credits will only go so far and then *poof* the lights will go out.

What does that leave us? There is much progress in the field of fusion for power production, but it is still years away from being practical. The option that is here and practical is nuclear power. Reactors are safer today than ever before. The small amount of waste will (hopefully) soon be stored away in a remote site here in Nevada. They are cost efficient, safe, and clean. Congress needs to look into ways of speeding up the applications process with the NRC before New England goes black.

My Links! My Beautiful Links!

Where did my blogroll go? I went over to the Blogrolling website and it says I created some sort of 'Fatal Error'. Oh no, I killed all of the people at Blogrolling! Please forgive me!

"Blogrolling support has been notified"
Uh oh. Now they are after me. Are those sirens I hear? If anyone needs me, I'll be hiding under my desk.

Want to Live In DISH?

Echostar satellite is giving away free DISH network service for ten years to the first town to officially and permanently change it's name to DISH.

Personally I would rather live in Spork. Residents would get a lifetime supply of those little plastic wonders of science. Or even better, 'Exxon'. Free gas for ten years! Maybe I could go and buy that gas guzzling SUV I've always wanted. I'd have to get it before they are gone for good.

Then I could just run over those leftist hippies in their hybrids instead of getting caught behind them in traffic and being forced to read stupid bumper stickers like "Democracy is not a faith based initiative". Hey lefty wing-nut! Read the declaration of independence sometime!
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Creator = God. That means our founding fathers created our democracy based on beliefs of God-fearing people. Shocker, huh?

Sheehan Abandoned Her Family.

Ellen Goodman at the Boston Globe has been hanging out at 'Camp Casey' with 'Crawford Crusaders'. I never knew that Sheehan's husband filed for divorce over this. Not to mention:

"Aunts and uncles on the prowar side of the family criticized her for 'promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the expense of her son's good name and reputation.'"
Pro-war, no just pro-sanity. Dragging Casey's good name through the dirt was something they wanted no part of.
"Indeed, there's no way to know what Casey Sheehan would say about peace or mom."
Sheehan must think that Casey disapproved of being over there, or else she doesn't care that he may have been fighting a war he thought was right. Of course she says she only cares about your children. News flash: I can take care of my kids and if they were to die in defense of this country, I wouldn't drag their name through the dirt to further my personal agenda.

UPDATE: Rob Williams, of the Rob, Arnie and Dawn show (100.9 KRZQ in Reno),sends a letter to Sheehan that is far better atriculated than I could have made it.

Conn. Likes 'em Stupid

Apparently trying to educate our youth to a standardized level is something the people of Connecticut can't deal with. "No Child Left Behind" is facing a lawsuit there for requiring "state and local money be used to meet federal testing goals".

Oh, so now you don't want to have to spend money to teach children? Maybe the magic money fairy will come and pay to get your kids up to speed.

When did it become okay to fail? When I was in school, if you got an 'F', you failed. No credit and most likely summer school in the near future. Kids tried, some had to try harder, some had to do it over. Yet somehow we had a very low dropout rate. Now kids are allowed to screw around and the dropout rates are rising. Coincidence? Not likely.

Discipline is missing from our schools. These federal standards would not be hard to meet if you started cracking down on slacker kids. Stop blaming 'ADD'. Stop blaming 'society'. This is the fault of parents who refuse to punish and teachers who don't know how to teach. Make kids smarter or don't get funding. Why should I, as a taxpayer, pay for schools where kids who won't learn anything?

Guns are Cool.

JimmyB the Conservative UAW Guy says Clark County may eventually have the largest shooting range in the country.

All we have in Clark county now is private ranges. They charge outrageous rates because we have no public facility. Support the cause and send a letter. Thanks.

No Room For Humor in Washington.

I supported President Bush's nomination of John Roberts for the Supreme Court but now I know he can't be a SCOTUS judge. The guy is too funny.

Having a sense of humor is poison to feminazi liberals. It makes less sense to them than a passage from the Bible. Understanding a simple joke about "whether encouraging homemakers to become lawyers contributes to the common good" is like trying to comprehend Bill Clinton's autobiography. They just don't get it.

Phyllis Schlafly, the president of the conservative Eagle Forum is willing to forgive Roberts of his use of comedy to get Washington to lighten up.
"I don't think that disqualifies him. I think he got married to a feminist; he's learned a lot"
Ah, feminists. The cure for laughter. Kim Gandy, president of the liberal National Organization for Women is not so quick to forgive.
"I find it quite shocking that a young lawyer, as he was at the time, had such Neanderthal ideas about women's place."
Right. We are going to have to have that humor gene removed before he gets confirmed. If we don't have a bunch of uptight weenies on the Supreme Court, their judgements might actually serve the common good.

This is Why I'm an Independent

Senator Chuck Hagel (R) moves into the realm of the moonbats by saying Iraq is starting to look like another Vietnam. I agree we need some sort of solution to Iraq, but it doesn't involve leaving a huge mess behind.

I'm not saying the 4 year plan ('worst-case scenario' as Gen. Peter Schoomaker calls it) is the way to go. Action is what the American people need to see. Something that has detail and form. Letting our troops go marching through with no perceivable mission is going to make Americans distrust the war even further.

Make a goal, stick to the goal, and achieve the goal. Then get our boys home. Show us you know what the heck you are doing over there.

Sometimes I Hate Being Right


Israel is just finishing up forcing the last few settlers out of the Gaza Strip and already Hamas is jumping up and down about "We want Jerusalem, we want the west bank". It is difficult to understand their muffled speech since they are wearing black masks out of cowardice.

The Israelis have made no sign of aggression toward the Palestinians but of course Hamas has to put in a threat.
"We will meet any aggression or violation against the liberated areas with force," said the statement in English. "And we reiterate that the presence of any soldier or settler on the liberated lands or the border crossings will be met with resistance."
To which the Israelis responded "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated."

Fear and Loathing in Crawford

Cindy Sheehan has some competition now. Her little anti-war rally has angered a local man who's son died in Iraq. Gary Qualls has started an anti-anti-war protest.
"The camp is named "Fort Qualls," in memory of Marine Lance Cpl. Louis Wayne Qualls, 20, who died in Iraq last fall."
Wow, you mean not everyone who has lost a family member in the war is mad at Bush about it? Doesn't he understand that the president is simply leading an illegal war-for-oil?
"'If I have to sacrifice my whole family for the sake of our country and world, other countries that want freedom, I'll do that,'"
Who does this guy think he is? You can't go spouting patriotic propaganda like that in Crawford!
"Qualls' frustration with the anti-war demonstrators erupted last week when he removed a cross bearing his son's name that was among hundreds the group had put up along the road to Bush's ranch."
Wow, I like this guy. I know if it was me I would have done the exact same thing but probably got arrested as I beat the Liberal hippees to death with it. Qualls also wants to have a debate with the Crawford Peace House which is helping 'Camp Casey'. It looks like they won't participate, though.
"We're asking for a meeting with the president, period," said Michelle DeFord, whose 37-year-old son, Sgt. David W. Johnson, was in the Army National Guard from Oregon when he was killed in Iraq last fall. "We don't want to debate with people who don't understand our point of view."
Don't want to debate those who are more intellegent than you. I understand that. Once the press realized how moronic you are, they would be out of there faster then Michael Moore at a Weight Watchers meeting. At least I can sleep better now that Gary Qualls and other Bush supporters are there to keep the stupid from running rampant.

Carnival of Comedy 16

...Is up at Point Five. I lost my invitation to the party. No cake and ice cream for me.

Can You Believe This?

MSNBC interviews Cathy Gallagher about her new line of greeting cards. They are titled the "Secret Lover Collection"

I hope to God every guy who sends one of these gets caught. Gallagher says she is not "an advocate for this lifestyle" but is simply "a businesswoman". Using this logic, the owner of the whorehouse is not doing anything wrong because she's not having sex with clients. How about the drug dealer that doesn't use? Isn't he just a 'businessman'?

How about making money doing something that is morally right instead of supporting cheaters that are ruining their lives, not to mention the lives of their spouses. Gallagher is condoning lying to the person you swore oaths to on your wedding day. My bet; she's a liberal. Lying is a moonbat's middle name.

Hat Tip to Sister Toldjah.

I Apologize

I thought my little blog was small enough to avoid the idiot 'bot postings in the comments section but unfortunately I too am a victim. I apologize if anyone had to read the contents of that comment before I had a chance to remove it. I have enabled the 'word verification' in the hopes that this will not happen again. Sorry if this makes commenting a hassle but as I wish this to be a family-friendly site, I cannot allow any posts about genitalia, porn, etc.

Thank you for your understanding.

Orders From Alliance HQ

(A PGH Assignment)

Allaince H.Q. wants me to bug some famous person until they talk to me. Very well, I accept your challenge.

I've been sitting in a tent outside the home of Ryan Stiles for the past week now and still haven't gotten in to see him. I've been told this house once belonged to Liberace. Extravagant, to say the least. Well, I'm not going to allow myself to get distracted from my mission of a personal meeting with Mr. Stiles. I've been passing the time making up hoe-downs and singing them as loud as possible.

Maybe you want to know why I'm pestering this man of unimaginable height? I'm going to demand he apply for the part of James Bond. Brosnan is out and now is our chance to put an American in the role!

"But, Sean", you say, "he's a comedian. How can he play such a serious part?" I believe it is time for Ryan to branch out and reach for a higher calling. Besides, how hard can it be to say "Bond. James Bond" and "Shaken, not stirred"?

My calls for support to Drew Carrey, Colin Macherie, Brad Sherwood, and Wayne Bardy have gone unanswered but I'm not giving up. Not for anything. What's that? $100 if I leave? Woohoo, I'm rich! See ya!

Our Border (aka. Leaky Sieve)

It seems some states are coming to the realization that illegal aliens are crossing the border. Wow, we the 'NeoCons' have been saying this for how long now? YEARS! Nice to see the government is keeping up.

So now that it is a 'emergency' are we going to get the funding that congress previously denied for more boder agents? Probably not. How about the minute men? Can't have them, they are 'racists'.

What is the motivation for crossing the border? You get your very own ranch. What kind of screwed up reality is this when someone who is in this country illegally can use our court system against us? This really crosses the line of sanity. I hope someone appeals to the supreme court, gets these illegals deported, gets the ranch back to Casey Nethercott, and gets Dumbass Dees sent to jail for aiding criminals.

Evil Glenn Writes His Autobiography

(A Filthy Lie)

You know him from his witty commentary on Instapundit. Now Glenn Reynolds has readers enthralled with the release of his new autobiography ‘Making my Empire’. This 3000 page best-seller chronicles Glenn’s exciting journey to become the king of the blog-dodecahedron.

Chapters include ‘Glenn’s First Computer’:

“When I first laid eyes on that Commodore 64, I knew my destiny lay within those integrated circuits. Pong, you will be mine!”

‘Glenn Gets a Modem’:

“That whine, that hiss! I have found true love! Chat room, you will be mine!”

‘Glenn Discovers the Internet’:

“I have found my Mecca and it is the ‘Net. All of this information, mine to do with as I please. Blogosphere, you will be mine! Indeed!”

And we even hear about ‘Glenn’s Puppy Love’:

“At first I tried Doberman but it was too chunky. Eventually experimentation lead to blending 13 different breeds together to get the right mixture. Delicious and nutritious. Muahahaha.”

Glenn Reynolds’ ‘Making my Empire’. Coming to a cult bookstore near you. Preorder by August 30th to receive a free black candle.

Cool.

Gaza Strip Sounds Like a Dance Move

I’m going to go into a bit of a rant here but the whole Gaza strip situation seems a little like a brat teenager stealing from his mom and her being a pushover. It might as well be like this:

Israel (mom): Honey, you can’t have the Gaza strip. It belongs to Mommy.

Palestine (teen): Give it to me b*tch. I want it.

Israel: But honey, Mommy needs Gaza. She has people who live there.

Palestine: You give it to me now or else I’m going to whine to CNN.

Israel: OK. Just be careful with it.

Palestine: Get those people out of here!

Israel: But honey, they were here first.

Palestine: “Hello, CNN?”

Israel: Sheesh, teenagers…

Maybe we can get Ariel Sharon and Mahmoud Abbas onto the Maury Povich show and have that drill sergeant guy knock some sense into both of them. Giving up land to Palestine is just like giving into a whining brat. Sure it shuts them up for the time being but they are going to want something else soon. Now that Israel agreed to this they are going to get pushed even furthur.

Of course Condi Rice is not helping matters. Hey Condi! The jews were there first! Have you read that part of the bible? No where in there does it say 'Mahommed was here'.

Back again!

Hi everybody! What a vacation. I didn't even go anywhere, just stayed at home and vegged out. Felt really good. I did take in a mini vacation at the Mandalay Bay hotel. Highly recommend it for the comfort and the awesome pool. Kinda pricey but worth it.

Looking at the news today and it looks like much the same in Iraq. More of our soldiers dying while Bush has his 3 weeks off.

'BTK gets 10 life sentences.' Again, too good for a slimeball like that. This is why I'm all for the death penalty. Give the dead some justice.

There's more but I'll save it for tomorrow. Until then, take care.

Good News and Bad News

I have the results of my upper G.I. Looks like hiatal hernia and GERD. Sounds fun, huh? Seems that I will be taking Prilosec for the rest of my life. I've also been diagnosed with gastritis. They had to take a biopsy to see what is causing this. All I care about is getting rid of these chest pains. Well, it's back to rest and relaxation for me. Have a good week.

Until Tomorrow

Well it looks like Eileen Collins and crew will have to wait until tomorrow to see when they can come home. Both attempts this morning were waived off due to 'unstable' weather conditions around Kennedy Space Center. I hope tomorrow looks better for them so they can return to their families. Good luck and God speed Discovery.

Hooray for Summer

Just to let my 8 or 9 readers know, I'll be taking the next couple of weeks off for vacation. I'll try to get a post or two in but no guarantees. On Tuesday I'm getting my esophogus inspected, so I will most definately be out of commission then. Please pray that it goes well so that I'll finally be free of these chest pains.

Sunday Night Fun.

Commander Buzz Corey has a sneak preview on the casting for 'Dukes of Hazzard 2' over at IMAO. Check it out.

CNN has this article about the resignation of Benon Sevan. If he is so sure that he did nothing wrong, why is he whining about getting no support from the U.N.? Sevan had this to say about the accusations, "You guys are a bunch of meanie heads and I'm not playing with you anymore."

The Baltimore Sun has this:
'Shining a light into the crevasses of Maryland's capital'
Maybe they will finally take care of those hemorrhoids. What are they hiding anyway? Perhaps they are consulting with the mothership and don't want the humans to know.

It also appears that CNN read my question to "Ask Ducky" at IMAO. I doubt the moose will mind the oil rigs in ANWR especially if they do get the casino rights.

Not in the Mood

Sorry. Don't feel much like posting tonight. I'll just put in a quick congratulations to all of the hard-working sailors that rescued the Russians. It's good to see nations working together in a crisis. I heard that France was planning to send a ship out as well but they encountered a sand bar and promptly surrendered to it.

One other note to the loud-mouthed liberal mommy: Do you think your boy would be proud of what you are doing? You dishonor his memory by protesting that which he gave his life for. You make it meaningless. You may as well pee on his grave. If I had died during my time in Iraq, it would have been because I was doing what I thought was right. I'm sure this soldier felt the same. Why do you defile the honor that is rightfully his?

I Wonder if the ACLU Will Get Involved

Looks like a few members of So-Cal AAA have been very naughty. Everyone has someone in their workplace that they can't stand. It's just a fact of life. But slandering someone on that crack-addict/kiddie-porn website 'MySpace' is not the way to deal with it. Tell it to the person directly. Just make sure you are bigger than that person. You're not? Well then, best to keep it to yourself... wuss.

Airline Pamphlets are Useful

NY Times editorial writer Helene Cooper shows that those little flight information booklets actually serve a purpose. Personally I love the little pictures of faceless people they put in them.

I just want to know what wise guy decided the seat cushion was a good idea for a floatation device. Do you want to be hugging somthing to your chest that you probably soiled yourself on while the plane was going down?

Taking Cheap Shots at Another's Expense

I'm all for it. Check out the abuse Harvey is getting at Bad Example. My contribution:

Harvey is followed by "poorly organized depression". Yeah, that's how I feel after hearing him on the IMAO podcast doing those fun facts about the 50 states bits.

Of course I kid. My depression is well organized.

NCAA Goes Liberal

I'm not much of a sports fan, myself. I can't keep track of players stats and I don't have a 'team', but when something of this caliber of stupid comes out I must respond. The NCAA doesn't want to offend anyone anymore. Excuse me, but if some team wanted to use a label of my heritage for their mascot, I'd be proud. The Irish part of me says 'good on you Norte Dame for showing Irish pride and strength'. Florida shows pride and recognition for it's Seminole heritage by naming their team as such.
North Carolina-Pembroke, which uses the nickname Braves, will not face
sanctions. NCAA president Myles Brand explained said the school's student body
has historically admitted a high percentage of American Indians and more than
20% of the students are American Indians.
Ok, so using that logic I can make up a team called the 'Honkeys' if the population is over 20% white? How about the UCLA 'Negroes'? They have more than a 20% black population. Do we have to have a 'Rebel' population in Las Vegas to keep our team's name? It's very sad to see this politically correct nonsense moving into the world of entertainment.

What Changes Evil Glenn Would Make at NASA

(A filthy lie)

I called up a friend of mine in Jacksonville yesterday, who works at Kennedy Space Center, to ask about the Discovery coming back.

SeanS: Hi Mike, how's things in Florida?

Mike: Dude, things are sucking big time.

S: Hey, I thought you guys would be partying it up since this looks like this will be a successful mission.

M: Nope. No more parties. Orders from the new boss.

S: What's his problem?

M: Parties distract from work. We are already planning STS-115 and this guys being a hard-ass. Last night he beat up the flight test director because he looked like a 'hobo'.

S: Hmmm.

M: Arrgh! Don't say that word!

S: Got something against one word comments?

M: I do now. That's all this guy does!

S: Sounds familiar...

M: And then there are those funky energy drinks he's always got. Something is not right with them.

S: Too weird. This guy's name wouldn't happen to be Glenn, would it?

M: Yeah, you know him?

S: Oh my GOD! Stay away from him! He's evil! Do you know what he's up to?

M: Well, I'm not supposed to say, but STS-115 is launching a new prototype satellite. It's called the Instapundit 1.

S: What's it going to do?

M: Well, I'm not really sure. Supposedly it hooks into media outlets around the world in search of information. Once it finds something with conservative ideas, it takes all relevent information and links to it. Then it puts it on a site called 'Instapundit' and adds a one word comment. Sounds pretty useless to me.

S: It's worse than I thought. Does it do anything else?

M: Well it's set up to wipe out all of these things called 'blogs'. I'm not sure what they are, but he seems to have it out for a group called the 'Alliance'. Oh, and it broadcasts the Discovery channel.

S: What?

M: Yeah, some show about penguins.

S: That's not the discovery channel, friend. He's broadcasting penguin porn! He'll have all the children in the world addicted! We have to stop him! Keep that satellite from going up.

M: I'm not sure I can......

S: Hello?!

Evil voice: Muahahaha!

So there you have it. If Evil Glenn takes over NASA, he will send up a satellite to destroy the blogosphere and taint the world with penguin porn. We must stop... h....i.....

-END TRANSMISSION- INDEED!

Back to the Business at Hand

Well I took a few days off and will be again next week as I go on vacation. I'll try to get a post or two out but no guarantees.

Let's see what we have in the headlines:

1. The AP has a short article about how close these terrorist are to home. Too many people are getting comfortable thinking that the TSA and Patriot Act are keeping the terrorists out. News flash: they are in your hometown. Timothy McVay wasn't arabic, but he did quite a number on Oklahoma City! Let's not forget about these things. I sure appreciate the job that TSA is doing but there are gaps in our border that need filling and the idiots in Washington don't want to fork over the dough to fix it!

2. Hey, go figure! Bush says we are staying in Iraq. Backing out now would prove to the American public that Bush was wrong to go there in the first place. Can't do that and keep people voting Republican. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad we went. Saddam Hussein is a murderer and deserves to die a terrible death, but staying in is not the answer. There is no end in sight with Pres. Bush's plan. We need to make a decisive strike at the heart of the islamo-fascist organizations. We need an act that will bring respect for the power of this country and fear of retribution. Maybe FrankJ is right and we should nuke the moon.

On a lighter note, the lineup for Vegoose (Oct 28 - 31) was announced. It sounds like an okay show though I most likely won't attend because:
"It's definitely not geared toward the under-21 crowd," he said. "This is for aging hipsters, people in their 20s and 30s."
Aging Hipster? Wow, maybe I should go out and shop for a cane and some orthopedic shoes. Could you be more condescending please? Other reasons for not going are the price ($142.50 for two days) and the fact that Dave Matthews will be there and I don't want to have sewage dumped on me. Maybe I'll have to move out of the city for awhile as they are figuring almost 100,000 people in the city getting drunk and dropping their cash on blackjack.
