Just a Little Over an Hour

... left to go and it will be 2006. For the 300,000 people freezing their butts off on the strip I have this to say: What's wrong with you? Go inside where it is warm! There won't be any fireworks because the wind is too strong. Too bad, so sad.

In case anyone is wondering, I'm stuck at work. I wouldn't be down there anyway (too many drunks) but I would like to be home in bed.

Go on with your drunken revelry! Just be off the streets before I have to go home.

Call Me Crazy

I am totally opposed to frivolous lawsuits. Every time somebody stubs their toe in a supermarket and sues, the prices of grocery items goes up. I don't like that.

That being said. This guy is my hero.
A Las Vegas man who sued a company for repeatedly sending him an unsolicited fax advertisement won a Nevada Supreme Court ruling Thursday giving him the right to sue in state court under a federal consumer protection law.

Paul D.S. Edwards, who brought the action against Direct Access LLC, which does business as Direct Access Partners, can pursue the case in Clark County District Court, a three-member panel of the court ruled.
If this guy needs somebody else to form a class-action, I'm available. This company sends faxes with offers for 'low interest loans' just about every week to my job. Who they are for is anyone's guess. I called the number on the sheet that is supposed to get you off their calling list, yet the faxes keep coming.

Mr. Edwards, I hope you get enough to put these idiots out of business. Unsolicited phone calls are one thing, but these faxes are wasting company and/or personal resources to advertise something totally unrelated to the business that is being performed. If you want to sell me a loan, get an ad on TV or the radio. Leave my fax machine alone.

Biting the Hand...

Today's Review-Journal has another excellent editorial. This time it is looking at the irony of EPA grants going to organizations that sue the federal government. Biting the hand that feeds them, so to speak.

This seems to be a recurring theme in a lot of non-profit organizations. The ACLU has 501(c)(3) status and continually files lawsuits against the federal government for things as trivial as a cross or a display of the Ten Commandments. This is our tax dollars paying off a group that doesn't have to pay taxes. Double whammy on America but we put up with it.

When I was in the Navy, our ship was harassed by members of Greenpeace, a non-profit organization, because we were a nuclear powered vessel. They kept us from dropping anchor in a port by sailing their boat under the anchors. Once a year we had the option of donating to a charity of our choice. One of the choices was Greenpeace. Can you say 'stupid' boys and girls? I knew you could.

Time to put the brakes on this lunacy. You want government grants? You don't sue the government. You want to keep your 501(c)(3) status? You demonstrate that you are actually interested in civil rights and not just a bunch of money-grubbing slimeball lawyers out to push a political agenda.

We Have It!

Yes, the answer to my prayers! The question that has been plauging me ever since we began the push for democracy in Iraq, "When is it over?", has been answered.

Gen. Peter Pace said the current force of 160,000 would drop to below 138,000 by March, then U.S. commanders on the ground would work with the Iraqi government to determine the pace of future pullbacks in areas that have been secured by local security forces.

"The bottom line will be that the Iraqi army and the Iraqi police will gain in competence, that they will be able to take on more and more of the territory, whether or not there are still insurgents in that area," he said in an interview with a small group of reporters, including The Associated Press, aboard a military plane en route to the United Arab Emirates.
I thought that this is how it might go. Give the Iraqi's responsibility and take our guys out of the picture. It's kinda like teaching a kid how to ride a bike. You can't just pull off the training wheels and expect him to be Lance Armstrong.

Yes, it will take time. More of our boys will most likely pay the ultimate price, but now the ones we lost will not have died in vain. We know what the goal is. You can track the progress and see results.

Now everybody join me in a chorus of "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."

Evil Glenn's New Year

(A Filthy Lie)

Like many of us, Evil Glenn will be starting the new year with a list of resolutions. Here is a list of them. Can you guess which one's he will break?

1) Lose 10 pounds. A shake for breakfast, one for lunch, and a sensible dinner.

2) Start an exercise routine. It's finally time to use that Bow-flex my wife bought me.

3) Change out my comments in my posts. I think I'll try "How 'bout that" instead of "Indeed".

4) Clone myself. Have mini-me kick Frank J's butt.

5) Give up control of the blogosphere to Michelle Malkin. Heh, who am I kidding?

Well, that's all he had for 2006. Happy New Year, Glenn. There will be many more good lies to spread in the coming year.

Email

I've finally gotten through the clutter of emails that accompany a vacation. I got a great one from my friend Fmragtops. Since it came in email form, I'll have to edit it for blogger, but this is something everyone should see:

SLEEP LAST NIGHT?

Bed a little lumpy...

Toss and turn any...

Wish the heat was higher...

Maybe the A/C wasn't on...

Had to go to the john...

Need a drink of water...





Yes... It is like that!

Count your blessings, pray for them,

Talk to your Creator and the next time when...

the other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes,
or you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be,
or you're served slightly warm food at the restaurant,
or you're sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you,
or the shower runs out of hot water,

Think of them...

Protecting your freedom!


Message from Iraq

The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do something to pay tribute to our fallen comrades. So since we are part of the only Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could think of doing that is by taking a picture of Baker Company saying the way we feel. It would be awesome if you could find a way to share this with our fellow countrymen. I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your papers to let the world know that "WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN" and are proud to serve our country.

Semper Fi
1stSgt Dave Jobe

(Editorial: I don't know if the end message is genuine, but I do know that the disclaimer in the email about sending it to 13 friends will NOT result in someone calling me at 11:11PM. Frankly if someone calls that late, they usually get a barrage of nasty comments from me followed by a dial tone.)

The 7000 Club

(A Precision Guided Humor Assignment)

Alliance HQ sent a memo out last week with orders to find out where the 7000 troops currently assigned in Iraq are being sent. I'm on the case.

Internal memos from the State Department show nothing more than a plan to relocate all of the Sunni Muslims to Poland. No good. My sources inside the NSA say that there is word that Osama Bin Laden is taking refuge in the Clinton's basement. Again, nothing worthwhile.

Wait... here it is. A fax from the White House to the CIA. It says that the troops will be relocated to... Crawford, Texas? Something about a chili cook-off and ice-cream social. Why is Rummy keeping that secret?

What kind of chili are they making, anyway? Something fishy here.

Merry Christmas (after)

Whew! Great vacation. The presents have been dealt out and the wrapping paper is in the trash. Back to the grindstone.

What to my wondering eyes did appear? Comments from trolls who found there way here!

Okay. Notice some comments have been deleted. This is NOT because I disagree with what is said. Trolls and the like are entitled to their opinions. You are not, however, allowed to use foul language on my blog. I am not the FCC, and as such am not willing to put up any sort of warning that idiots are using foul words here. If you can't keep your language clean, go comment somewhere else.

Now for you moronic trolls (i.e. Chuckles), I have asked this question to every lefty liberal trash-heap that has the audacity to question the methods of the Bush administration: Where is the proof?

You say he KNEW that the 9-11 attacks were coming. Where did you find this piece of information? Why didn't you inform the 9-11 commission, who proved otherwise? Why aren't you on CNN right now explaining that this war was started just so that Bush and his cronies at Haliburton could put an oil pipeline into the heart of Iraq? Give me one piece of solid evidence that would stand up in trial, and maybe you will get the credibility you think you deserve.

I WON'T be holding my breath.

What Happens Now?

The Senate decided to vote down the extension of the Patriot Act. Let me paint a picture of what happens if this expires and we lose the increased ability of our security agencies to track the actions of terrorists.

No longer able to investigate the actions of terrorists, the FBI and CIA are unable to see the attack that Al Qaeda has planned on our country. A building is blown up, or a monument, or some other fixture of our society that results in a large number of innocent American deaths.

Those on the left blame the Bush administration for lack of intelligence. Even though we know that it could have been prevented by the Patriot Act, the left will deny it. They voted for the Patriot Act before they voted against it.

No more excuses. Renew the Patriot Act. Put the security of the country before the wants of the ACLU. I'm willing to put aside my civil liberties if it means no more attacks on my soil.

And then do something about the border.

CoC #33

The Carnival of Comedy #33 is up at Right Wing Testimonial. Daniel has done a great job as host. He puts my meager attempt to shame. Well done.

Wednesday, December 14, 2005

Ok. Fine. I'll keep going.

Especially if news like this keeps coming out. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that the Holocaust is a myth.
"Today, they have created a myth in the name of Holocaust and consider it to be above God, religion and the prophets," Ahmadinejad told thousands of people in the southeastern city of Zahedan.
I knew the guy was crazy, but I had no idea that he was this crazy. This is the liberal mentality that warn people about. You could put piles of evidence at his feet and he will continue to deny atrocities. This is a dangerous man, people. No longer should we stand idly by and allow Iran to build a nuclear program. No longer should we allow the repression of the Iranian people. No longer should we allow those on the left to convince us that inaction is the best policy. Talking to a maniac will achieve nothing.

I hope that Washington is keeping a close eye on what is happening here. We cannot afford to have another Saddam Hussein-type tyrant running a country unchecked.

BTW, I heard that he DOES have WMDs. Bought 'em off Ebay from a seller named "Saddami-salami".

This May be the End

My sincerest apologies to those I may have offended. Last night I was informed that my last post may have been offensive to certain people. That is why it has been edited from the original. I never meant this blog to be anything more than a whimsical look at the lunacy of the left, but apparently some take it far more seriously. It's not the action of a troll, rather, it is some people close to me that do not comment here, they call me at home.

I don't know if this will be my last post here. I wanted to utilize this space only to vent and sharpen my writing, but if I am going to be questioned on the content, I'm not sure if it is worth the hassle. I'll need some time to think about it. In the mean time, I will continue submitting to Battle Born News and Love America First. I hope to see you there.

God Bless you all and have a Merry Christmas.

Patriot Act Revision 2

(A Precision Guided Humor Assignment)

CSPAN continues it's coverage of the 109th Congress, 1st Session.

House of Representatives
Washington D.C.

"The chair recognizes the gentleman from Nevada."

"Thank you. I, SeanS, hereby recommend an amendment to H.R. 3199, extension of the Patriot Act, to include the following provisions:

1) Illegal aliens have no rights to utlize our court system as they are not legal citizens.
2) As per clause 1, it is okay to detain illegal aliens for the purpose of returning them to their rightful home.
3) Terrorist can be shot on sight, regardless of location.
4) Hippies count as terrorists.
5) The ACLU no longer has any right to access our court system, as they too are terrorists.
6) Al Franken counts as a terrorist.
7) If any liberal moron says anything else about immediate withdrawl of our troops or any other defeatest trash, it is considered an act of sedition. The punishment shall be immediate deportation to Iraq.
8) It is hereby illegal to call Christmas anything other than Christmas. If you don't want to offend the Jews, you are authorized to say Happy Hannukah along with the Merry Christmas."

*Call to vote*

Oh well, it was worth a shot.

Keep Mining Nevada

With our mineral resources as abundant as they are, you would think that Jim Gibbons' plan for opening more federal land for mining would be strongly accepted. Not where liberals are concerned. Almost immediately after the bill was introduced, the Las Vegas Sun wrote an editorial slamming Gibbons' proposal as "a giveaway to private interests", claiming that the land could be bought up under patents for $1,000 an acre or fair market value, whichever is higher, regardless of the mineral potential.

First off, the land has to be explored and prove that there is a profitable mineral content before it will be sold. It is true that the bill has provisions for the addition of "adjacent public land", but that is for the support of a mining operation. You can't have a mine if there is no place for miners to live.

Plainly stated, this is a good thing for Nevada. We have a strong mining heritage and in order to keep the money and jobs here, we need to be able to explore more land for minerals. Oh, and $1,000 an acre for 360,000 acres totals... $360,000,000! All that without raising federal taxes!

Battle Born News

Can you believe it? I'm a contributor for another great blog! This time it is Battle Born News hosted by Eric Odom. Eric is the brains behind ConservaTown and it is a great honor for me to be a part of his team at Battle Born News.

I guess this means I'll have to try and be serious for a minute.

Nah!

Air-heads

Once again, the Kyoto protocol rears its ugly head and once again, we reject it. Why would the U.S. not wish to participate in such a treaty? Because we like electricity and the U.S. is already doing it's part to reduce the amount of CO and NOx we put into the air.
A broad scientific consensus agrees that these gases accumulating in the atmosphere, byproducts of automobile engines, power plants and other fossil fuel-burning industries, contributed significantly to the past century's global temperature rise of 1 degree Fahrenheit.
That's right folks, a whole whopping degree. The kicker is that these scientists have no actual evidence that the temperature rise is caused by humans. To the contrary, there is evidence to show that there have been multiple ice ages caused by CO2 naturally building up and subsequently melting the polar ice caps.
"It's clear the Bush administration isn't willing to accept its responsibility," climate expert Bill Hare of Greenpeace International said of the continued U.S. rejection of global negotiations and emissions controls.
If we were forced to comply with the terms of the treaty, over half of our power generating plants in the U.S. would have to shut down. The cost to upgrade a plant to meet such strict guidelines would be astronomical. Coal generation would cease and the cost of electricity would be similar to what it was during the power crisis in California, only it would be nationwide. In order to make up for the lost capacity, we would have to utilize alternatives such as nuclear power. Somehow, I think that Greenpeace wouldn't accept that as an option.

Maybe they want all of us to go the way of the Amish. I wonder if Bill Hare owns an iPod. It's hard to listen to Enya without electricity, Bill.

I apologize for my extended absence from blogging but I have been participating in the Christmas shopping fiasco. I also got the news that I may have some spine problems and I get to go see the doctor again on Monday. I may be able to get a post or two this weekend but for right now, I'm going to rest my back and take some more of my pain killers. Mmmmm... Darvocet...

MNDCS In Action

(A Precision Guided Humor Assignment)

November 30, 2005
MNDCS COMPLETES PROJECTS IN AD DIWANIYAH

CAMP ECHO, Iraq – Multinational Division Central-South Soldiers completed three civil-military cooperation projects this week in the Diwaniyah province.

In al Shamiyah, 30 kilometers south of ad Diwaniyah, MNDCS soldiers provided a new sewage system for 60 houses. The new system will improve the problem of flooding during the rainy season.

Another project involved upgrading the central fuel station with a 500 kilowatt generator to improve the efficiency of the station.

The third project completed this week was a new 3.5 kilometer road built in the northern part of al Diwaniya city.

CNN spoke to Sean S. an operator for _____ Energy, LLC concerning the 500 kW generator. "Yeah, 500 kilowatts is a lot of electricity. Enough to power 200 to 500 homes."

We asked Sean if electricity like this could pose a hazard to the Iraqis. "Only if they grab the conductors with their bare hands. I'm sure that the Iraqi people are far happier just to get the fuel.", he said. We asked Sean if he thought it may just be a plot by President Bush to electricute innocent Iraqis.

"What are you? Idiots?! It's electricity for a pumping station not electric chairs!"

CNN has information from an undisclosed source that the sewer system may pose a hazard to Iraqi children who could fall in and drown and that the new road may lead to more traffic accidents. More on this story as it develops.

Glenn's Mob

(A Filthy Lie)

Here's a little story from my Navy days. Being stationed on the east coast and having parents on the west, I had to fly a lot. I normally took my leave around the holidays so that I could be with my family for Christmas. The airports are usually packed during these times and so I always made sure I brought my patience.

Once I had a stop at Washington National Airport. Just a little hour layover and I'd be back on my way. While I was headed to the gate to catch my next leg, I was walking past the New York Air desk and witnessed a mob of people rushing the counter. I was curious to see what all of the confusion was about, so I stepped in for a closer look.

"We want to carry on our blenders!", screamed one lady.

"Can't we bring on our penguin porn?", yelled some other guy.

I wasn't sure what it all meant. Now that I look back, I remember seeing some guy in a tacky suit snickering while he stood back and watched.

You can guess who that man was.

Putin's Real Plan for Iran

I could believe that Russia would sell a weapons system to Iran.
The Interfax and ITAR-Tass news agencies cited unidentified sources in the Russian military-industrial complex as saying that Russian and Iranian officials had signed contracts in November that would send up to 30 Tor-M1 missile systems to Iran over the next two years.
In Vladimir Putin’s “managed democracy” Russia is well on its way back to the days of the Soviet Union.
He resurrected the Soviet national anthem and unveiled plaques commemorating dictator Josef Stalin. He publicly endorsed the jailing of environmentalists on dubious espionage charges. And three years after Russian forces pulled out of Chechnya in 1996, Putin sent troops back into the separatist republic to fight an unpopular war against an elusive enemy that kills scores of Russian soldiers in hit-and-run attacks every month while federal troops take revenge by killing or torturing scores of Chechen civilians, international observers say.
Perhaps Putin thinks by allying himself to Iran, he can somehow get his hands on more of the oil reserves in the middle east. I think it would be in the best interest of the Russian people to ensure their alliances with the west are not broken. We can be a powerful ally and an even more powerful enemy.

Iran's plans are pretty clear at this point. They have openly announced their plans to have a nuclear program. They openly show support for terrorist groups, including Hamas and al-Qaeda. They unlawfully imprison people who disagree with the current regime. It's time for Mr. Putin to reevaluate his alliances and decide where his loyalties lie. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's days are numbered.

1 Hour To Go

The media gets to have their field day again with numbers. This time it is the number 1,000. Kenneth Lee Boyd will be the 1,000th person to face the death penalty since it reinstatement in 1976.
Clemency from the governor had been Boyd's last chance to avoid execution. He will be strapped to a gurney at 2 a.m. (0700 GMT) on Friday and given an opportunity to make a last statement.

He will then be injected with three drugs -- sodium pentothal to put him to sleep, pancuronium bromide to paralyze him, and potassium chloride to stop his heart. Five minutes after his heart stops, he will officially be declared dead.
The only problem I have with this is the time. Couldn't they have picked a time when the executioner wasn't going to have to get paid overtime?
Only China, Iran and Vietnam held more executions in 2004 than the United States, according to rights group Amnesty International.
Yay! It's time for the liberal interjection. 'We kill violent criminals so let's compare the U.S. to communist dictatorships.' I'm sure Iran, Vietnam, and China all use exclusively humane methods too. Let's look to the statistics(2004):


Per capita we are below Yemen! How many of these criminals were under 18? Zero. How many have we beheaded? Zero. How many were killed in a cruel or unusual manner? Zero. Publicly executed? Zero.
