Spacemonkey is OLD
Go wish Spacemonkey a happy birthday.
He's only 5 years away from needing a walker.
This is the old site. Click the title to go to the new Shoot a Liberal.
*Disclaimer: Don't actually shoot liberals... Impaling is much more satisfying. But then again, there's always walking the plank...
Go wish Spacemonkey a happy birthday.
Back in my Navy days, it was an understood that one person could make life terrible for the whole division by screwing up. Now that I'm a civilian, I thought that I wouldn't have to deal with such things. Boy, was I wrong.
One of our employees is coming back off a recent suspension and because of that, I'm no longer able to use the internet for anything other than job related stuff while I'm at work. That is going to make these 12 hour shifts a lot tougher. I used to be able to stream music off of Yahoo while surfing the news and blogs. Now I can't. This means I will very likely be posting less (not that I do much as it is).
Maybe it is time to start looking for a job somewhere else.
I read the indictment against Tom DeLay and the other members of the Republican Majority PAC. I'm not a lawyer and do not have any history in law at all, but even as a lay person, it seems pretty obvious to me that there was no crime committed here. Tom DeLay is not even mentioned in the actual charges.
The IFC has been dropped from the plans for the World Trade Center memorial site. Thanks to all of the people who signed the petition to have the center removed. Now the people who were killed in the attacks of September 11 will have a fitting memorial that honors their lives and sacrifices.
Who would know less about intellegence than the ACLU? Now they are up in arms about a statement that simply says that some things which evolution cannot explain "are too complex to have developed through an undirected process and are best attributed to an unnamed and unseen intelligent agent."
''This case is about free inquiry in education, not a religious agenda,'' said Patrick Gillen, in the defense's opening remarks.Of course, the ACLU is going to use its misinterpretation of the establishment clause to fight away 'creationism'. What is evolution, if not a religion itself? Ever since man came to be, he (Now I'm a sexist) has asked the question of where he came from. This is what religion is. If the question has to be asked, and since there is no absolute proof, faith must prevail, therefore religion.
...and Cindy Sheehan is trying desperately to hold on to her limelight. If she wasn't so misguided, I'd almost feel sorry for her. It's almost as if I'm watching an episode of a sitcom where the main character just doesn't get the fact that she is the punchline to the joke.

I, Glenn Reynolds, being of sound mind and body, do hereby bequeath control of the blogosphere to FrankJ and his Alliance cronies. That's right, you win. Apparently, the people want originality instead of my trademark 'Link and Indeed'. Well, that's just fine with me. I'm going to take my law degree and my piles of money and make a run for the presidency.The dark side clouds everything. Impossible to see the future is.
Oh, yes. I will be president. I made a deal with his greatness, Satan. My soul for control over the country. Heh. Once it is mine, I will make it impossible for you to do anything on the internet. Enjoy your freedom while it lasts, as it will only last for so long.
I've been feeling rather depressed lately as the degradation of our society becomes more and more evident to me. Christianity has become an evil in the minds of organizations such as the ACLU and as such it becomes difficult to even introduce people into the faith. Thankfully, The Bible can now be shown to kids in such a way as to meet the strict requirements that the supreme court has put in place.
American Jewish Congress (search) attorney Marc Stern, an adviser on the effort, said despite concern over growing tensions among U.S. religious groups, "this book is proof that the despair is premature, that it is possible to acknowledge and respect deep religious differences and yet still find common ground."Amen, Mr. Stern, amen.
What's this in my inbox? Lefty hatemail? Yippee!
Hey Rightwanker!! Come f--king(edited) shoot THIS LIBERAL Democrat!!! I'm the big red headed bearded guy in Knoxville, Tn. holding the legal class 3 full auto and the AR-15 with the 40 round mag. I've been trying for years to provoke one of you rightwing pu--ies(edited) into coming after me! Here's your chance smegma breath! Come on down and take your best shoot Conservanazi! I've been waiting for the opportunity to drill a .223 or a .308 through a Rightwankers inbred, smegma encrusted, head!! Really want to bag a Lib or are you just another macho 101st keyboarding Chickenhawk!??? - Larry Henderson, Knoxville, Tn., USAWhoa! Ladies and gentleman, may I proudly introduce the new spokesman for the DU, Larry 'The Psychoman' Henderson. My response:
Dear left wing psycho Larry,Just for fun, here is Larry's email address: lhenderson(at)knology(dot)net. Don't want the spambots to get it or he might change it. Feel free to post your responses to this email in the comments.
As it is the 21st century and not the old west, I'll have to graciously decline your invitation. The weapons I own are for hunting, target shooting, and home defense. It is nice to know you have a decent arsenal, but if you want to put it to some good use, you can join the Minutemen who are defending our borders from the hordes of illegal aliens that are crossing every day.
If you would have actually taken the time to read my blog, you might have seen that 'Shoot a Liberal' is simply a metaphor for what I write. My topics and ideas are supposed to act like a 'bullet to the brain' of the typical left wing wackjob. So take your itchy trigger finger and put it away before you hurt someone, most likely yourself.
P.S. Boomer is always within reach and he's loaded with 11 rounds of .40 S&W semi-jacket hollowpoints. For home defense.
Why? Why are we going back to the moon?
"It is expensive, but at the same time it's incredibly important because the return to the people of the United States and the world is also very important," DeLay said.How is it important Tom? What return? I understand that a space program is important since the earth may not have room to hold us all for much longer, but the moon is not going to work as a human storage device. I get the whole experimentation idea if we are going to use it to improve things on the planet, but we have a space station (we spent billions of dollars on) for that.
Not according to Bruce Murray of the California Institute of Technology. Murray told The New York Times, "Water at 1 percent by volume is not a resource," (see "Craft Sees Signs... " in the bibliography). "For something to be a resource, it has to be, by definition, economically viable, and this would not be."'Not economically viable' i.e. a big waste of taxpayer's money.
Avast me mateys! Beware the dreaded monster of the Pacific! I been told many a tall tale but never have a heard a load of carp gut like this. I seen enough from my travels to know these scurvy dogs can't be trusted. Keep the cannons at the ready me hearties and watch these Koreans close.
Responding to Pyongyang’s claims that it needs atomic weapons for defense, North Korea and the United States pledged to respect each other’s sovereignty and right to peaceful coexistence, and also to take steps to normalize relations.Yaaargh. Me eye be on 'ya and me weapon be at the ready.
Harvey of Bad Example has a link to the Centcom newsletter. Don't rely on the MSM for info on the was in Iraq since all they care about is the number of dead. See what good our boys in uniform are doing over there. And it's emailed to you!

Seems there are a bunch of dirty terrorist scumbags at Gitmo who are feeling neglected by the liberal media, so they went on a hunger strike to draw attention to their "plight". Apparently the want the "due process" they're entitled to under the Constitution.Boy, it sounded like an order from Harvey but it seemed pretty important so I left immediately to Washington.
Or would be entitled to, if they were, you know, US citizens.
Or hadn't taken up arms against the US.
But since they know they're not entitled to squat, I suspect that the MSM has screwed up the story and that the terrorists are on a hunger strike for one or more reasons that aren't being reported.
What's the REAL reason the terrorists at Guantanamo are engaging in a hunger strike?
Ray Nagin has no concern for the welfare of people. There is no drinking water, intermittent power, and toxic substances in the streets of New Orleans but what does he care? As long as people get back to work and start bringing in those tax dollars so he can get his paycheck, he is happy. Of those 180,000 people he wants to bring back in, how many will get ill from the filthy conditions?
"We must offer the people of New Orleans every chance for a sense of closure and the opportunity for a new beginning."A sense of closure would come if you and Ms. Blanco removed yourselves from office or at least accepted the responsibility for making the disaster worse by your inaction.
Basil wants headlines. Here's your stinking headlines.
I've been listening to a new talk radio station in Las Vegas lately, 1280AM (Google still shows it to be a spanish station). It has Laura Ingram and Michael Medved on during the day and The Rusty Humphries Show in the afternoon. Yesterday, Rusty had an interesting question for his audience: Is it hard to be conservative?

"Katrina exposed serious problems in our response capability at all levels of government and to the extent the federal government didn't fully do its job right, I take responsibility,"How long do you figure it will be before the liberals call for President Bush to resign?
Maybe we could get Yucca mountain back on track if Edward "Ward" Sproat, a nuclear industry executive from Pennsylvania is confirmed as director of the Energy Department's Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management.
"On the other hand," Loux continued, "if he is coming at it from the experience of negotiating with DOE, maybe that is an indicator he is going to move the department to the direction of settling with the utilities."Settling? We are going to continue using OUR tax dollars to pay utilities to keep their waste on-site? We already pay Exelon to keep storing their waste. Boy, you liberals sure are loose with other people's money! How about you start paying them out of your own pocket, Loux? I'd rather have the repository.
"Any nominee will face tough questions moving through the hearing process," said Tessa Hafen, spokeswoman for Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., a repository critic who closely watches the project.Well, duh.
Want to make a liberal cry? Tell them that people survive. Col. Terry Ebbert:
"Numbers so far are relatively minor as compared to the dire projections of 10,000."I don't know of anything that could be a bigger lefty party pooper than finding out that not as many people died as you had hoped.
Lost almost everything in Katrina? Come to Las Vegas, we'll take the rest.
Rapid Politics is hosting this week. I made the list. No accounting for taste I guess.
No snarky warnings and no 'iffy' content. I was fairly picky in my categorizing and I only let the very best into the first category. All of the items in the last category are there for a reason...some of them are humorous but are either way too long or lack substance.Yay! I have substance!
For 7 kids out of New Orleans who have been reunited with their family. This is the kind of heartwarming story that the MSM should be focusing on. These poor kids have lost everything in the storm but found new friends and got back to their parents safely. These poor parents who sent their children off so they would be safe, with no regard to their own lives.
I normally don't post about personal experiences here but I feel this tale must be told. A warning to anyone who reads this post, it is sad. If you are in the mood for funny, go to CUG or IMAO.

As it is Labor Day and I am stuck at work, I am not going to be blogging about the Katrina disaster, moonbats, oil prices, or anything like that. Instead I'm going to talk about my last job.
Let's send Bree Johnston of the Huffington Post over to New Orleans to draw fire while repairs are in progress.
This post will remain at the top until Monday.
What good would come from shooting contractors trying to repair a hole in the 17th street canal? Somebody please make sense of this for me.
You know that Hollywood is going to make some sort of film about this. Refugees from New Orleans are banding together in 'tribes'.
Don't get me wrong, I love IMAO and the IMAO podcast but getting a link from them is like trying to get a piece of candy away from Rosie O'Donnell. So I have decided to resort to dirty tactics and send an elite team of ninjas over to IMAO to force FrankJ into giving me a link.
I'm putting out an all points bulletin for Fmragtops. He lives in Louisiana. His last post was on August 24 stating he was out of town. Nothing else has been posted on his site since Katrina hit. Anyone knowing the location / status of Fmragtops, please post in the comments section. JimmyB, GunnNutt, Fitch, and I are worried about him. Please post a message on your blogs as well.
Rehnquist, 80, had experienced "a precipitous decline in his health in the last couple of days," and died in the evening surrounded by his three children, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg said.Now Bush will have another spot to fill on the supreme court. Of course, the liberals will make a fuss about whoever the nominee is because he or she is bound to want to overturn Roe vs. Wade and eliminate women's rights. I know the truth, though. This is just a cover to keep Karl Rove out of the papers.
I see the pictures taken from New Orleans and feel a deep sense of hopelessness for the people displaced by Katrina. Where do you go when you no longer have a home, job, clothes or food? I have made my donation but there is not much more I can do personally.
In order to gain more culture, President George W. Bush has started taking courses in Shakespeare. I have graciously accepted an invitation to assist him in deciphering some of William Shakespeare's works.
Former President Bill Clinton has got Arianna Huffington in a fit. It seems that Clinton feels the disaster in New Orleans was unforseeable.
"You and I are not in a position to make any judgment because we weren't there."What do you mean they can't make a judgement? Mr. Clinton, if the liberals can't make judgements, they won't have anything to say. Do you mean to say that this wasn't all President Bush's fault? Howard Dean says it is.
"I'm telling you," he said in a White House sit-down with CNN (along with Bush, Sr.), "nobody thought this was going to happen like this...they had problems they never could have foreseen."Arianna seems to forget the fact that Bill Clinton WAS president of the United States. He would know better than anyone else what it is the country is prepared for.
And now providing cover for George W. Bush and undermining this teachable moment. Again I ask: What the hell is he thinking?Here's what he is thinking: "Arianna Huffington is a freak and I want nothing to do with her or anyone at her blog. Except for Greg Gutfield. I love that guy."
Doc Rampage has the carnival for this week. Go forth and do the funny.

President Bush has a great plan for dealing with the rising gas prices across the nation:
"Don't buy gas if you don't need it"Whew. I feel relieved now. I know that people won't be buying gas on random urges anymore. I almost went to the gas station this morning, with a full tank, to buy gas on a whim and then I heard that the president didn't want me to buy gas because I didn't need it. I have a strange desire to spend $3.00 a gallon. YEAH, RIGHT!
