Davids Medienkritik: Bush Needs Your Help!


Via The Amazing Kallini Brothers comes two links that I just had to share. One is the lies told in public education, and the second is a report of another Kerry endorsement.

If the Mad Mullahs of Tehran weren't enough... hehehehehehe. At this point, all Bush might have to do is point out who DOES want Kerry to win, and the election is over.
Drink Alert!

I know that many people love Frank J. Hey, it's all good, I enjoy reading his writing as well. But excuse me while I simply state that Steve is the funniest guy on this side of the Blogosphere.

Do I care that lawsuits have made it harder to buy a Cessna? No. I do not fly, except in a partially reclining chair from which I can periodically cry out for tiny bottles of vodka. Do I care that I can no longer buy lawn darts and lob them over the hedge when the neighbors' kids make noise? No, as long as I know how to aim a sprinkler head.

I DO care that I can no longer buy fries in a container that doubles as a makeshift shelter. It was bad enough when those pussies quit frying them in beef grease and started using Mobil 1 or whatever artery-coddling Vegan solstice orgy lube they use now. But when they go after size, they go after the heart of the fast food gluttony ethic.

Am I not entitled--nay, obligated--to overindulge at the drive thru? Did I shoehorn my massive ass behind the wheel of my car and wait in line behind a contraception-challenged brood sow in a minivan who takes twenty minutes to make her kids order just so I can dine responsibly? Hell, no. I came to get down; I came to get down. So take off that headset and jump around. And get me a Coke I can play Marco Polo in, before I pull your sullen, minimum-wage, nose-ring wearing head through that window and suffocate you amongst my folds.


HAAAAAAAAAAAA! BWAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAA! (oh god, my ribs!)


Graphic Link Warning

Don't go there if you have a weak stomach. But I just thought that people would like to know what regular Iraqis think about the terrorists that have been hitting their country recently.

The pictures are violent. The images are graphic. But sometimes you have to stare evil right in the face so that you properly know who and what you're dealing with.
The Council Has Spoken!

This weeks winners are A Visit by the FBI by Spiced Sass, and Never Again by Kim du Toit. You can find all the results here.
One More Day

Until the Blastorama!



I encourage all Seattle Area people to come join us. Details can be found here

Remember, John Fonda Kerry would hate this sort of thing. What other reason do you need to come and shoot with us?
The Bush Ads

The Donks are howling again, this time over the TV ads that President Bush has running. Some pictures of the September 11th aftermath are shown, and as usual, Leftists are screaming about it.

Analog Kid has a post up that says we should show MORE of those pictures. And you know what? I agree with him.

Head on over and look at the last picture in that post. Look at it for a gooooooooood long time. Kerry has already stated that we shouldn't be at war, we should be looking at the terrorist threat as more of a law-enforcement issue.

A Law Enforcement Issue.

Tell me, Mr. John Fonda Kerry, what do you tell the family of that man? The man who had a terrible choice to make; either suffocate and burn to death in the smoke and flames that were engulfing his section of the building, or jump to a mercifully quick death from over one-hundred stories above the ground. "Oh, we're sorry that we couldn't scrape enough of your loved one off the pavement to fit in a shoe box, but we'll have those darn terrorists in jail real soon!" Yeah, I'm sure that will make them feel better! That'll solve the problem!

We had EIGHT YEARS of a president who treated terrorism as a "law enforcement" problem, and where did it get us? 3,000 dead, billions of dollars lost, and a gaping wound in the middle of New York City.

This election, while having many different themes and issues intertwined in it, will be known for one thing: Do we finally get real about terrorism, or do we go back into our September 10th hole and pretend that it'll all go away?

Kerry wants to pretend it never happened. Bush wants to deal with the problem head on. Who do YOU want running the country?
A Nasty Campaign

This election season is going to be one of the dirtiest campaigns we've ever seen. The Donks have been slinging mud for months while they did their primaries, and now it's going to get even worse. Bush is going to have to run a steady, positive campaign, while at the same time deflecting all the muck that's going to be thrown at him. And Kerry is a master at lying, slandering, and accusing. Just look at what he did to Viet Nam soldiers.

So when I see a report like this, it really makes me grit my teeth.

WASHINGTON — With a jobless report showing February's unemployment figure remained static at 5.6 percent, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry had a lot to work with as he criticized President Bush for not generating the numbers he projected in a January economic report.

5.6% unemployment. That's better than Clinton! But Bush is getting attacked for it?

Bush's sore spot in this presidential campaign is the jobs front. New figures out Friday showed that employers in February added just 21,000 jobs, far below the 125,000 that economists had projected. January new jobs figures were also revised downward from 112,000 to 97,000.

The overall unemployment rate remained at 5.6 percent, below the average for the decade of the 1990s, but with 8.2 million workers looking for employment, the numbers could become a liability for Bush in November.
(emphasis mine)

So Bush has a lower unemployment number than the 1990's, but he's going to be hurt by it? I really want Bush to push his economic reforms during his campaign. He pulled the economy out of the crap-pile that Clinton left it in, helped it recover from September 11th, and is beating Clinton's economy. This isn't bad news, unless you're a Donk.

Which is why they're trying to put so much spin on it, I suppose.

Don't forget, this Saturday at Wade's Guns and Range in Bellevue, WA.



You can find details and maps in this post at RNS.

We'll be having breakfast at the Bellevue IHOP, so you can sit down and chat with everyone before we go shoot. People normally get to IHOP between 8:30 and 9:00, and the range opens at 10:00.

This will be Dogtulosba's last Blastorama, as he's getting shipped out later this month. Wade's allows non-members to shoot any handguns and rim-fire rifles. Members can shoot centerfire rifles and shotguns as well. One of these days we'll have to hold this thing up at Sam's which allows any firearm with a muzzle velocity under 3000 fps, member or not.

And now that the part has come in for my 1911, I once again have a fully functioning armory. So the offer still stands to anyone who wants to learn how to shoot, or get re-aquainted with shooting. All you have to do is show up. You can borrow my guns, my ammo, and my advice. Or you can rent a gun from Wade's, as they have an entire case full of handguns you can try out, as well as several rifles and carbines. Obviously, if you borrow my gun you don't have to pay any kind of rent fee.

And later on this summer, there will be an outdoors Blastorama. AK is working on the details, but it's still a ways out. Just be prepared.

Remember the episode of Beavis and Butthead where the
two fellerz tried to discover the secret of morning wood?

It's was pretty funny, in a really juvenile and slapstick sort of way.

I don't want anyone to think that I have some sort of Penile Obsession,
but this:

I saw a picture that reminded me of all those days I have awakened
with something akin to a railroad spike in my pants, and the wife is
already busy getting ready for work, and I am late in awakening too,
so it's just really an annoying thing.

I think this blog is read by primarily men.

I find myself assuming that many of you experience the same thing.

Therefore in recognition of said circumstance I hereby proclaim
this post to be a Public Service Announcement.

An Erection Alleviation Public Service Announcement.

The view from Britain's Left of Left Independent:

If the human race as a whole, rather than 50 states plus the District of Colombia, could cast a ballot this coming November, John Kerry would surely win the presidency by a landslide.
The Candidate: A landslide for Kerry. But can he now unseat Bush?
The RINOs are flushed out

Now it's time to shoot them down.

Chafee (R-RI)
Collins (R-ME)
DeWine (R-OH)
Fitzgerald (R-IL)
Gregg (R-NH)
Lugar (R-IN)
Smith (R-OR)
Snowe (R-ME)
Voinovich (R-OH)
Warner (R-VA)

These pukes voted for the AWB extension. Folks in Illinois, Indiana, Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island and Virginia, take note. If you're going to have gun grabbing communists stabbing you in the back, you might as well make them have the customary (D) next to their name.

Thanks to Kallini.com for the link.


I cannot believe I missed this site until it was too late: Dean People Suck.


Guess what Diane Richie wants as monthly support payments from soon-to-be ex-husband Lionel?

I think the courts should have a web site where you can plug in your assets and get a ruling on the financial consequences of a divorce. I mean, if the cost is $300,000 per month, wouldn't you be inclined to put up with her shit just a little while longer???
Baby Got Back

And Mix got a .44 Magnum.

Sir Mix-A-Lot is from Seattle, and I've listened to some of his stuff. He was popular before the gang-bang style of "slap da bitch and shoot her pimp" rap came along. (Am I dating myself? I hope not.)

Anyways, in honor of the AWB taking a direct hit yesterday, Analog Kid put up another song on his soundboard. The link up above will take you to his entry. But just to give you a taste....

I don’t give a DAMN bout a stupid ass burgular
It’s all circular
The dope dealer sells dope to the dope smoker
The smoker breaks in and tries to choke ya

But I ain’t the one to run from ya son
This is MY HOUSE, and it’s FULL OF GUNS!


Heh. Breaking into his house seems like a bad idea to me.


Mort Kondracke points out who's doing the bulk of the smearing in Presidential politics.


Looks like the Lemmocrats have found themselves a Liberal Talk Radio lineup. The purveyor of the rancid image above, plus Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo will go up against Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage.

Ja!


I called the office and told them I'm not coming to work today.

They asked, "What's wrong?"

I said, "I am suffering from anal glaucoma."

They asked, "What's that?"

I replied, "I just can't see my ass coming to work today.

Attention Gun Owners!

Do you have cable gun locks sitting around? If you're like me, you take them home and hang them up somewhere, but never use them. If I need to use my gun, I'm not going to fiddle with any damn lock. Apparently a lot of people feel that way as well.

Keep and Bear Arms has a solution for all those unused locks.

Hey, pissing off a Democrat is it's own reward.
My, my, my.....

Who could that be giving a big thumbs up for gun control? Who is it that wants to remove the 2nd Amendment? Who wants to disarm the American public?



Thank god the "Assault Weapons" Ban is done for. Should Tranzi pukes like this ever come to power, we're going to need every gun we have.
Rules for Gunfighting

Courtesy of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. As usual, all emphasis is mine.

The USMC Rules For Gun Fighting
1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
3. Only hits count. The only thing worse than a miss is a slow miss.
4. If your shooting stance is good, you’re probably not moving fast enough nor using cover correctly.
5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend.
6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
8. If you are not shooting, you should be reloading, and running.
9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be more dependent on “pucker factor” than the inherent accuracy of the gun.
9.5 Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. “All skill is in vain when an Angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket.”
10. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. Have a plan.
13. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won’t work.
14. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
15. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them).
19. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get. Go nuclear first.
21. Be polite. Be professional. However, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
22. Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
24. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun of any caliber that does not start with a “4.”


The Navy Rules for Gun Fighting
1. Go to Sea.
2. Send the Marines.
3. Drink Coffee.

Update to the previous post

Just when I'd pulled my bullets out and gassed up the truck....

I found this.

Thank God.
Die, You Shit-Sucking Ass Monkeys!

DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEE!

By a 52-47 vote, the U.S. Senate on Tuesday moved to reauthorize the 1994 assault weapons ban, which is to expire in September.

Fucking gun-grabbing commies! Tyrants! Dictators in training! You should be drug out of the Capital building by your feet and hung naked on lamp-posts until your rotting festering corpses fall apart!

The Senate also voted, 53-45, in favor of an amendment that closes a loophole on sales of weapons at gun shows.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California, who sponsored the assault weapons amendment, said, "The legislation has the support of 77 percent of the American people and 66 percent of gun owners.


That is nothing but a flat out lie, you stupid bitch! But you've been lying and cheating and disarming Americans for as long as I can remember, so this should be nothing new for you! Dear god, you traitorous wench, I'd take great pleasure in seeing you run over with an Abrahms tank! It would take something that big for your fat, corpulent flabby ass!

"It has not removed a legal gun owner from his weapon and has reduced traces of assault weapons to crimes by two-thirds in the last 10 years."

The assault weapons ban bars the sale of some 19 different types of military and military-style assault weapons and has the support of many law enforcement agencies.

Senators on both sides of the aisle had expected a close vote on the reauthorization.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, sent a letter to Vice President Dick Cheney this week saying he expected the vice president to be available in case of a tie and to break the tie in support of the ban, as Bush promised.

Ties in the Senate are broken by the vice president. Cheney was not in the Senate chamber for the vote.


Lies, lies, lies, lies, LIES! WHEN THE HELL ARE THESE COMMUNISTS GOING TO TELL THE TRUTH?!?!

NEVER! Because they couldn't get their liberal gun-grabbing agenda passed if they told the truth, could they? According to these Tranzi pukes, a .22 rifle with a 16 round capacity is a fucking assault rifle! HOW MORONIC IS THAT? And as usual, they spout off bullshit statistics like it was nothing!

Proponents for keeping the semi-automatic "assault" gun ban argue that 10 of the 50 police officers shot to death annually over the four years from 1998 to 2001 were killed by these guns. But the Violence Policy Center, which put these numbers together, never examined whether the guns used to kill police possessed two or more of the features defining them as"assault weapons." Rather, the guns were counted as assault weapons if it was possible that they had at least two of the banned features.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! WHERE IS THE FUCKING RESET BUTTON?!?!?!?!?!

It's becoming exeedingly clear to me that this country has several difficult choices to make. One of them needs to be made soon. Because I can guarantee that if Bush signs this rancid piece of shit bill into law, he will lose the election. He will have pissed off too many of his supporters. First the Amnesty bullshit, and now this? FUCK THAT!

For your sake, President Bush, you had better kill this damn thing. Kill it now. Do not let it get even close to law. Otherwise, you're sunk. I'm not a one-issue voter, but if you sign this pile of crap you will have violated too many of my standards to vote for you again. I'll find the Libertarian candidate and check his name off. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?


Misha waxes funny at Aristide's expense:

When asked who the agents were, [Aristide] responded: "White American, white military."

OK, that alone proves that it's a lie. We all know that the U.S. Armed Forces is made up entirely by underprivileged minorities, risking their lives for a bowl of rice and a scholarship at DeVry. C'mon, we've read it at Democratic Underpants at least a million times, so it MUST be true!
That's a bit of a shot at Charlie Rangel, too, but who's counting?

Oy!
THIS JUST IN!

Some Politicians Discover Their Testicles!

Conservatives balking at President Bush's proposal to grant illegal immigrants three-year work permits are floating a counteroffer that would hamper his efforts to woo Hispanic voters in November's election.

Great Googly Moogly! You do mean to tell me that some congresscritters finally figured out that Americans by and large HATE THE DAMNED AMNESTY AMENDMENT?!?! Who woulda thunk it?

Rep. Charlie Norwood, R-Ga., and Sens. Zell Miller, D-GA., and Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., are conditioning their support for Bush's plan on Congress agreeing to also broaden the power of state and local police to arrest suspected illegal residents.

"If they don't have this in it, they'll pass that bill over my cold, dead political body," Sessions said of Bush's proposal.


Finally, someone who has the balls to stand up and say "THIS IS NOT RIGHT." It only took how many months?

Sessions, Miller and Norwood say they speak for thousands of conservatives who believe stronger enforcement of immigration laws must accompany any plan that would let illegal immigrants remain in the country legally.

Minor quibble, if I may. That word.. "Thousands"... should be MILLIONS. Does anyone remember the amnesty program of the 80's? Yeah, it was going to help all those illegal immigrants, we were ending a problem, yada yada yada umptifratz. What happened? Mexicans started pouring over the border. Gee, I wonder why? And can anyone else here see the problem with letting millions of unassimilated, mostly non-English speaking illegal aliens to suddenly be US citizens? Mmmm? Anyone?

Because federal immigration agents (search) are stretched too thin, they argue, 650,000 local police officers should be given the authority and resources to go after immigrants still undocumented after Bush's plan takes effect. Immigrant advocates say the distrust that would raise between Hispanics and police would erase any political advantage the president might hope to gain.

"Latinos very much support law enforcement, which is why we think making police officers immigration agents is a terrible idea," said Cecilia Munoz, vice president for policy at the National Council of La Raza (search). "If the victim of domestic violence feels she can't be calling police because they might be asking for papers, that's bad for the public safety."


OK Ms. Munoz, let take a good look at the situation here. These people are BREAKING THE DAMN LAW! They shouldn't be in this country in the first place! If they want to come to the USA, let them do it the right way!

By the way.. that National Council of La Raza.. where have I heard that term before? "La Raza". Damn, it's just ringing a bell with me.... Oh yeah! MeCha! "Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan" That's Cruz Bustamante's hispanic nazis! Bravo! Remember their little slogan? "Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada." For the Race, Everything. For those outside the Race, Nothing. I wonder how effective an Irish immigrant advocate group would be if it was "The National Council of The White"? Probably not too damn effective. But gee, "La Raza" is just peachy-keen in America!

What a load of horse-shit.

Norwood said his Clear Law Enforcement for the Criminal Alien Removal Act could actually be popular among Latinos because it targets law breakers, particularly those identified as crime suspects in a national computer database.

"If you got tough with the enforcement of our laws, I honestly believe you would get more votes from the Hispanic community," Norwood said.

Administration officials are treading carefully on the concept of local enforcement, but supporters of the Norwood and Sessions bills are interpreting some of their recent comments to mean they might be open to the idea.

Questioned by Sessions at a recent hearing, Asa Hutchinson, the Homeland Security Department's undersecretary for border and transportation security, conceded there are not enough federal agents to go after illegal immigrants every time the police call them in.


Time to hire some new troops the, Asa. Remember Lee Malvo? One half of the DC Snipers. He's a product of the INS' "Catch and Release" program. He'd been picked up by the INS before, and released on his own recognisance. Maybe if he'd been deported like he should have been, he wouldn't have hooked up with John Muhammed and gone on his little shooting spree! Gee, ya think?!

Hutchinson then pointed out that Bush is asking Congress to double work-site enforcement, detention and removal facilities in the 2005 budget.

At another hearing, Sen. Larry Craig, R-Idaho, asked Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge to consider forging "cooperative law enforcement agreements" with local police rather than spending money on training new federal immigration agents.

Ridge said Craig's idea had gotten mixed reviews on the local level, but he didn't rule it out.

"Part of the reason may be philosophical, others may be fiscal," Ridge said. "Either way, you've got 650,000 men and women in local law enforcement that should be viewed as a potential asset and resource in enforcing the new law, whatever it might be."

Craig, who is co-sponsoring Sessions' bill, is also pushing one of his own that would establish an agriculture worker program. Although he said he doesn't care whether the enforcement proposal passes first or last, he acknowledged that conservatives may block other immigration plans without it.

"In a broad-based approach of the kind the president is talking about, that linkage might be necessary," Craig said.


Look, it's very simple. Simply allowing millions of illegal immigrants to stay in this country is not going to fix the problems. Mexico is corrupt. Many of the people in Central America think that if they can just make it to America, things will be taken care of for them. Hospitals all along the Mexican/US border are being bankrupted by the massive influx of patients to cannot pay for medical care, but have to be treated in accordance with Federal law. Crime is on the rise, and a good portion of it can be traced to illegal immigrants. Unassimilated, uncontrolled, non-English speaking immigrants create havoc where ever they settle down. This cannot be allowed to continue! What needs to be done is this:

1) Seal the damn border already. Stop allowing everybody and their uncle to just walk on over the border. That's how many criminals get back into this country. That's how terrorists could get into this country.
2) Beef up the INS. Give them the resources they need to do their job.
3) Deport, deport, deport. Student visa expired? Time to go. No greencard? Time to go. Criminal activity? Time to go. I don't give a damn about any of your sob stories, and I don't care who else is up here with you. If you're an illegal alien, get out. Come back when you have enough respect for our laws to at least get a damn green card. And if you have a green card but you're in and out of jail on a regular basis, get the hell out. And don't come back. Start enforcing the damn laws in this country!

It's nice that some Congresscritters finally took at look around and saw that America is not happy with this Amnesty program. Now they need to get that message to President Bush.


Virgin Mary appears on glass building facade in Clearwater, Florida. People flock to see her image. Vandals shatter glass.

Clinton and Dubya: Comparing the economies.
OH GOD, THAT'S GOOD!

In the comments section of this thread at the Rott, commenter 0311 gave a link to this flash ad about Hanoi John.

I need to find whoever made that and buy them a beer. Hell, I'll buy 'em a whole damn keg!



Some vets aren't too happy with Hanoi John. As usual, all emphasis is mine.

With only three days to go before Tuesday's Democratic primary, Vietnam veterans rallied Saturday outside Sen. John Kerry's campaign headquarters in Manhattan — but a Band of Brothers they were not.

Side by side with a coalition of Vietnamese-Americans from across the country, members of the Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry chanted "Commander-in-Chief Kerry? No Way!" under banners and signs decrying the Democratic front-runner as a traitor.

"He betrayed us. He stabbed us in the back," Jerry Kiley, 57, co-founder of the ad hoc group, screamed to the crowd of about 400 people packed on Park Avenue South. "We will never allow him to be our commander-in-chief. Ever!"


Ouch. That's not a ringing endorsement from your "Band of Brothers", Johnny Boy.

Veteran after veteran passionately lambasted Kerry, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam war, for, among other things, his testimony to Congress in 1971 that detailed alleged atrocities committed by U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. Kiley said his group, which was formed three weeks ago, plans to rally at the Democratic convention in Boston in July if Kerry wins the nomination.

Equally fervent in their disdain for Kerry were the Vietnamese-Americans, who hold the senator from Massachusetts responsible for thrice blocking a bill in 2001 and 2002 that would have tied U.S. aid to Vietnam to that country's human rights record.

"Sen. John Kerry has been working with the dictatorship in Vietnam," said Nam Pham, 48, a banker from Boston who is working with the Massachusetts Human Rights Commission for Vietnam. "He lost the moral authority to lead the free world."


And the TRUTH shall set you FREE! Kerry isn't fit to be the local dog catcher, much less the President.

I love the fuggin blogosphere. Where else would you hear about the HAMMER OF GOD.

Kim du Toit is blogging while on vacation, and he's pointed out an article by Deroy Murdock in NRO. Please remove anything throwable around the computer before you read that. It's the sort of thing that makes me wish I could bring back public hangings for child molesters and rapists.

And then Mr. du Toit writes of his own experience in Germany. I would strongly suggest that everyone read it, and after they're done, think about the tactics used by the Left in this country and worldwide.

Those of you who have noted my blogging style know that I consider InstaPundit.com to be the King of Blogs. The last week or so has been a good indication of why. Note these posts:

John Kerry misrepresents DNA and the Death Penalty. By the way, did anyone notice Hanoi John's position on capital punishment at the Cali "Debates"? It was this: "I oppose the Death Penalty, except for Osama bin Laden."

Bashing America worked for Gerhard Schroeder, but just for a little while.

The Biggest Heist: UN Oil for Food.

Instapundit goes Linky Love re: Hanoi John's medals. Kerry says he saw lots of atrocities. One of the links seems to indicate that perhaps he was projecting.

Rebuilding the Middle East is a daunting challenge. Could it be that it's working?

The Osama Story.

BTW, did anyone see the Sixty Minutes story on North Korea's use of Anne Frank's Diary? A Dutch journalist was able to interview some schoolchildren in Pyongyang. Very interesting. When asked about the book, they kept saying things like "Concentration camps still exist in America" and "There will be no peace until America as we know it today is dead" and "There is hunger in the world because Americans steal food from the proletariat" and "When the America Nazis come for me, I will fight them".

In other words, they sounded like Dennis Kucinich.

recipe time again

The whole King Crab discussion has prompted me to start salivating and thinking about one of my favorite dishes. Since I'm a sharing kind of guy, I'm going to hand it out to all of you. Use it to impress those you love! (Or just want to get in the sack)

1 package cream cheese.
3/4 cups of shredded parm. cheese. (Romano works as well)
butter (1/2 to 1 stick will work, depending on how much you like butter. But no less than 1/2 a stick!)
1/2 cup milk.
Crab meat (the more, the better!)
1 package of pasta (Linguini is best, but fettechini works just as well. Hell, gnocci works well with this!)
Lots of garlic (minced)

Melt the butter in a saucepan with the garlic. When the butter is melted, add cream cheese and melt it on med/low heat. Don't let the cheese start to boil, otherwise the cheese will scorch. Take your time. Once the cream cheese is mostly melted, add the milk and parm/romano cheese. Keep stirring until everything is melted down. You should have a thick sauce. Dump the crab meat in. If the meat isn't cooked, let the sauce cook it for you (ten minutes should do). If it's cooked meat, just heat it up in the sauce.

Turn sauce down to low and let the flavors blend, stirring occasionally. Boil the pasta until slightly firm. Once the pasta is boiled, toss it and the sauce into a pot and give it a shake. Serve with more romano cheese over the top and good bread. A nice Pinio Grigio goes well with this.

You can also add scallops, shrimp, or just about any other light-flavored seafood in there. I love scallops.

If anyone tries it, email me and let me know how it goes!

The Razzies

Does anyone really give a shit? I mean, they gave "Showgirls" the most Razzies of all, and that had both Elizabeth Berkeley and Gina Gershon NEKKID! C'mon, how can you have those two stunning examples of femininity nekkid on the same screen at the same time and call it a bad movie?
The Local Birdcage Liner

Flipping through the Sunday edition of the local paper, I came across this little op-ed. Now, this doesn't make me scream or froth at the mouth, but it's just another indication of how people in this area have lost the ability to connect the dots.

Heads you graduate. Tails you don't.
Unfortunately, those are the alarming odds for the nation's African-American, Native-American and Hispanic students, according to a new study by the Civil Rights Project at Harvard University and several other organizations.

The findings mirror those of other national studies done in recent years. This state is no exception. A 2001 study by the Manhattan Institute found 53 percent of Washington's African-American students graduate while just 47 percent of Native-Americans andLatinos do.


We've all heard the statistics, the "Oh gosh, minorities aren't graduating, what will we do" being shrieked from the mountain tops. What gets to me is this single fact. For the past thirty years the typical liberal response has been to throw money at the problem. We're spending more on education today than we ever have in this country. And yet students keep failing. We spend more per student than we ever have, and yet the public education system is horribly flawed and failing.

Now, when I was a young child, and I kept smashing my head into a particular problem and couldn't seem to solve it, my dad would pull me aside and say "David, how long have you been trying to do it this way?"

I would look at him and say "I dunno. An hour." (It might have only been 30 minutes, but hey, I was five!)

His response... "Don't you think you should try something different by now? Find a different solution? Because you don't seem to be doing much this way."

Me, in my sullen five year old response: "Uh huh."

My point? We've been playing the liberal's game for decades now. And what we have achieved is nothing less than a massive failure and systematic letdown of the kids in this country. The Democrats had their way. THEY HAVE FAILED! It is now time to try something else rather than just throw money at the problem. If two decades of throwing money at public education hasn't solved it, then throwing more money at the problem won't do a damn thing except make some worthless NEA honcho rich.

Just my two cents.


Armed Liberal notes the silence on Rep. Corrine Brown's recent "All you white men look the same" comments. And he makes a very good point.

This isn't some community organizer, struggling against The Man. This is a woman who speaks with the authority of the House of Representatives of the United States, and who writes laws that I have to live under.

And so far, she's gotten a 'bye' on it. Someone explain to me how I can demand, with a straight face, that Dixiecrat Trent Lott or Jew-baiter (and MBNA shill) James Moran be punished when she isn't, or how I can give moral - as opposed to political - standing to those who only bust one side for the same crime.


No offence, A.L., but the simple answer is this: You Can't. At least not in the eyes of those who look at such things.
