Oy!

My computer is going down for a while

Gotta tear the thing apart and rebuild it. I downloaded a virus program, ran it, and it came up empty. But I'm still having problems on other sections of my computer.

sigh

So I'm going to download everything onto CDs and then wipe the fucker clean. We're putting in more SDRAM and upgrading from ME to XP. Once that's done, I'll reload all my crap and see what happens.

Until that's done, I obviously won't be posting for a while. I'll see you all when my computer is back to it's decent self.

Bill Maher Hit With Palimony Suit

Oooooooooo. One to keep an eye on.

"The Democrat's Guide to Overthrowing the Government"

Something Awful dot com has an amusing satire this morning about how the Deomcrats will take back the country. I am not quite sure if the guy writing this is Liberal or Conservative, but it's pretty funny regardless.

(Warning: contains coarse language)

Some tips for facing off against military forces:

Start supporting the second amendment, because all of our liberal gun control talk is about to take a big ironic shit in our mouth.

Try exposing yourself to radiation to become some sort of super mutant, because there is no way in hell you're going to be able to face off against a trained and equipped soldier otherwise.

Chant impotently at any soldiers you see, something catchy like "No war for oil" or "we need a pitcher, not a belly itcher".

Remember that soldiers are not human beings, they are actually robotic killing machines controlled by the fascist oligarchy of George W. Bush.

At some point outright rioting will cease to become a realistic option. The troops will be using things like bullets and missiles and liberal weapons like offensive rap lyrics, pornography, and flag burning will no longer be effective. That means it's time to form some militia units to engage the regular army forces in deadly combat. Militia units like:

The 101st Airborne Bong Tokers out of Berkeley
The 27th K.D. Lang Concert Audience Assault Brigade
1st Armored Division "Jon Stewart"
735th Recumbent Bicycle Cavalry
201st No to Nukes Light Infantry
6th Give Peace a Chance "Or Else" Division
82nd MoveOn Dot Ordinance Supply Battalion
The 4th Mississippi Irregulars "Martin Luther King, Jr." Division
1st Nantucket Schooner & Pleasure Yacht Fleet
9th Olympic Synchronized Landing Marine Division

Veteran's Day

Several people have up the poem "In Flander's Fields". Analog Kid has a photo pictorial.

Everything that we have in this country, we have because of those who have gone before us to protect us. Nobody in their right mind wants to die. Nobody in the miliary goes out in battle thinking "Gosh, if I catch a bullet then people will love me because I'll be a veteran!"

Soldier's, sailors, airmen and Marines, who would rather be sitting at home having meals with their families, celebrating the holidays with their loved ones, are doing what they do because they understand that this country is worth fighting for. This country is worth protecting. The rights and freedoms that we have are worth fighting for.

Nobody wants to die, but those men and women in uniform understand that it is better to die fighting for what you believe in rather than live in a world where freedom is just a wishful dream. So to all veterans, I say Thank You. I only hope that I can live up to your expectations.

There are more Veteran's Day links at Winds of Change and Powerline.

However, I think the best discription of all is from Mad Ogre.

Just a word to you cake eating civilians out there… You don’t say Happy Veterans Day. You don’t say Merry Vets Day. But just because you don’t have a meaningless Seasons Greetings for it doesn’t mean you don’t say anything. This isn’t some fat bunny in a sled passing around Jack O’Lanterns because it’s Santa’s birthday… This isn’t about some old fable-become-tradition. Veterans Day is a day for those that are still alive, and for those who are dead… those who died for your freedom to flip soldiers the bird and to call them baby killers and spit on them in the airport. Veterans Day is for the guys that died fighting for your personal independent liberty… It’s for that Veteran that walks with just a slight limp and seems otherwise fine, but he doesn’t have a spleen because an enemy of our country blew it out his back with an AK-47 so you can get 15% Off that new leather fat-ass reclining couch that your going to sit on to mock the President from while watching your 42 inch plasma TV flipping through the channels trying to find some Friends rerun. Veterans Day is for the guy that came home while all his friends didn’t. Veterans day is for the woman who gave up the best years of her young adulthood so she could press her hands over the sucking chest wound of some guy from her own home town 6 thousand miles away from home. Veterans day is for that old woman over there that raised 2 kids alone because when she was young she sent her handsome young husband off to fight for your freedom and came back as a flag folded into a triangle. That’s what Veterans day is for… and what do you say to those people who served? You just say “Thank You”.

POP THE CORK!

This vile excuse for a human finally kicked off.

That evil, foul person will trouble the world no more. I'm lighting a cigar and celebrating the end of one of the world's worst terrorists.

May he burn in hell for eternity, being gang-raped by seventy two demons.

Virgin demons.

Follow ups

Steve over at Drumwaster's Rants has a few questions.

-Hey CBS, you going to ever come clean on your fake memo business? Seriously, I want to know why you thought this thing was so damned important that you faked a memo to try to harm Bush.


Yeah, just when is anyone at See BS going to get fired for that crap?

The South Has Risen, Again!

I happened to catch this live. Ole Carole Simpson at here prattling and priggish best, maligning Bush voters as "unbelievable" and "ignorant". She just couldn't understand how voters could look at America and vote for Bush. Juan Williams lathered and shaved her, then Pat Buchanan put her to bed.

Anti-Muslim attacks in the Netherlands

Good little piece slaps a big ole bucket of cold water on the notion that we Americans are reactionary and intolerant.

Farewell, John Ashcroft

So John Ashcroft has said "Adios" to this administration.

Who can blame him? The man was front and center in the battle against terrorism, and reviled for it.

Ashcroft was the Left's boogie-man. I'm sure that somewhere in San Francisco, some wacked-out hippy was scaring her collective's kids with stories about how the big bad Ashcroft was going to take them away in a black helicopter and inprison them in a gulag-style building only known as "Ashcroft's Big Bad House of Horrors and Civil Rights Infringements".

Or something like that.

The man was flat out reviled by the nutcase Left, mainly because he objected to some drugged-out halfwit taking a dump on City Hall's front steps. In the Left's eyes, the man could do no right.

Crack down on terrorist cells? He was too harsh in the performance of his duties. Not persecute a murder properly? He was too lax in the performance of his duties. The man was seriously ill for a time, and the Left celebrated and wrote poetry about how they wanted him to die. And for what? For doing his job?

Mike of Cold Fury has the scoop on one of the worst lies perpetrated by the left, sustained by the left, propagated by the left, and continued by the Left. You see, when I call today's Democrats a lying, rancid pile of dog shit, I have good reason. From a Jay Nordlinger article:

The Breast was pretty quiet during the eight years of Janet Reno. As one peeved administration official puts it, “No cameraman was ever at Reno’s feet, trying to get a shot of her with that thing.” But Minnie Lou’s outstanding feature stormed back with Ashcroft. When President Bush visited the Justice Department to rededicate the building to Robert Kennedy, his advance men insisted on a nice blue backdrop: “TV blue,” infinitely preferable to the usual dingy background of the Great Hall. Everyone thought the backdrop worked nicely — made for “good visuals,” as they say. This was Deaverism, pure and simple. Ashcroft’s people intended to keep using it.

An advance woman on his team had the bright idea of buying the backdrop: It would be cheaper than renting it repeatedly. So she did — without Ashcroft’s knowledge, without his permission, without his caring, everyone in the department insists.

But ABC put out the story that Ashcroft, the old prude, had wanted the Breast covered up, so much did it offend his churchly sensibilities. New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, ever clever, wrote that Ashcroft had forced a “blue burka” on Minnie Lou. Comedians had a field day (and are still having it). The Washington Post has devoted great space to the story, letting Cher, for example, tee off on it — as she went on to do on David Letterman’s show.

And yet the story is complete and total bunk. First, Ashcroft had nothing to do with the purchase of the backdrop. Second, the backdrop had nothing to do with Breast aversion. But the story was just “too good to check,” as we say, and it will probably live forever. Generations from now, if we’re reading about John Ashcroft, we will read that he was the boob who draped the Boob. The story is ineffaceable.


John Ashcroft couldn't win for losing, and it was because of the Left's obsession with him as a horrible man. But he wasn't a horrible man. He was a man doing a job he had sworn to do, in the face of opposition from every angle. John Ashcroft may go down in history as one of the most loathed people in American government, but let me ask you some questions.

During John Ashcroft's tenure as AG, was there ever a:

A) Seige using illegal tactics, culminating in a woman being shot by government forces while she was holding her baby?

B) Ill-planned, ill-timed attack on a compound, culminating in firebombs being used by government forces, burning the compound to the ground with a massive loss of life?

C) Armed assualt by government forces on a civilian house full of unarmed Americans, culminating in a young boy being ripped from his relative's arms and being sent to live in a communist shithole of a country?

Lessee here..... Nope, nope, and Nuh-uh. But Ashcroft gets blamed when a moose farts and the winds change, because in the Left's eyes, he's the embodiment of the Spanish Inquisition reborn.

What a crock.

So here's a message to all you kool-aid chugging leftist fuckwits out there - If John Ashcroft was guilty of ONE-QUARTER of the crimes you accuse him of, you wouldn't be sitting there still spewing out your rancid bile. You'd be locked up, killed, stifled, your dissent squished, your rights taken away, and your lives forfit.

But none of that ever happened, because all you had to fling at Ashcroft was lies. You kept hammering away, hoping for any slight to stick no matter how vile. And a good man has decided that four years of stress, exaustion, and illness is enough, especially when faced with four more years of the same. He performed his job admirably, he's a good man, and he did not deserve any of the slime you hurled at him in your hysterical attempts to smear this administration.

Lets hope that his replacment does half as good a job. Otherwise, you might just be fucked.

Oh, For the Love of PETE!

President Bush, ARE YOU FUCKING HIGH???? Do we have to go over this again?

After speaking with reporters, Powell met with President Vicente Fox, who has made migration reform in the United States a top foreign policy priority.

He believes that the millions of Mexicans who work in the United States should be granted legal status, enabling them to live without fear of arrest and deportation.

During his discussions, Powell said he reaffirmed President Bush's "plan to work with our new Congress to develop a temporary worker program to match willing foreign workers with willing U.S.. employers."


Any person who comes into this country illegally IS A FUCKING CRIMINAL! YOU DO NOT REWARD CRIMINALS!

I think it's time that someone pulled the President aside and informed him that his actions now could seriously fuck up the 2006 election for the Republicans. Yes, he won. Yes, he has a mandate. But it's shit like this that hurts him with the very people who just supported him a week ago.

You want to know what I think needs to be done? First off, we need a complete and total overhaul of the INS rules and regulations. Here are a few starters.

#1: After a pre-determined period of time, make it known that any illegal immigrant has a zero chance of ever becoming a citizen. If you get busted as illegal, you are forever barred from becoming an American.

#2: Work Visas. Amnesty? No. Work visas? Yes. All the advocates for illegal aliens claim that they just want to come here to work. Fine. Let's document them, and give them work visas. These work visas would be contingent on several things, however:

---- No criminal record. If you commit a crime, or you have a criminal background, you lose. Get the hell out. No work visa for you.
---- A work visa would not in any way be considered a precursor to citizenship. You want to be a citizen, you fill out the paperwork just like everybody else. No citizen's rights will be granted with a work visa; i.e. you can't vote, you can't get government aid in any shape, and you are not covered or in any way given rights by the US Constitution.
---- The work visa needs to be renewed every six months. If, during the renewal process, it is discovered that you've been sitting on your ass for the majority of your stay, you get booted out. You wanted a WORK visa so that you could come here and WORK. Therefore, if you don't WORK, you get deported. I don't care if your Aunt and Uncle were supporting you so that you could lay on your back and play GameCube all day. Your visa is a WORK visa, not a lazy-ass-lounge-around-slob visa.
---- You pay the same local and state taxes as everybody else. You use the roads, you use the local services, so you pay the taxes. Federal taxes are debateable, since people on work visas would NOT be getting any federal aid. It's open for discussion.

#3: Lock the border down. Hard. Anyone attempting to crawl, run, jump, swim, or climb into this country gets either sent back home or shot once their feet touch American soil. Special exceptions will be made for people trying to escape a communist regime (Cuba).

#4: If you are not a citizen of this country, any baby you pop out IS NOT AN AMERICAN CITIZEN! Just because you're a contraception-challenged baby factory doesn't mean that you can pop out little carpet crawlers and expect the USA to take care of them.

Those four points would be a good start. But simply allowing people to stay without any documentation, or worse yet giving them citizenship, is a horrid idea. Bush had better stay the hell away from it.

Yes, we re-elected you. But that doesn't mean you don't have to face the music.

This rant brought to you by the wonderful and always thought-provoking La Shawn Barber.

Semper Fidelis

From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli,
We fight our country's battles in the air, on land and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom, and to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine.

Our Flag's unfurled to every breeze from dawn to setting sun.
We have fought in every clime and place, where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far off northern lands and in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job, the United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps, which we are proud to serve.
In many a strife we've fought for life and never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy ever look on heaven's scenes,
they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.


Yeah yeah yeah, I know I'm Army, not Marine. But my father was in the Corps for twenty-two years, and I'm damn proud of the military background in my family. So pardon me whilst I celebrate.

Semper Fidelis, Marines. Happy Birthday. Two-hundred twenty nine years of kicking ass and taking names. And judging by your actions today, you're still doing it better than ever.

Oh, and for those who are curious:

Great-grandfather: Army (American-Indian wars, Calvary)
Grandfather: Navy (WW II)
Uncle: Air Force
Father: Marine Corps (Viet Nam)
Me: Army (Back to where we started)

What HE said!

Dean types out yet another piece I wish I had written.

Do you disagree? Okay. That's fine. That's your right as a human being. But you guys did more than disagree. A lot of you were just plain assholes about it. You could have talked to us but instead you wanted to tell us that Chimpy McSmirk was the new Hitler and a big fat liar just because you didn't agree with him. It offended the shit out of us, because we did agree with him and we didn't think he lied (and most of us still don't). We saw a good, decent, moderate man in Bush who decided to take a big gamble and do the right thing for both America and Iraq and finally, finally, finally bring down the monster Saddam. Which should have been done a long damned time ago if we'd had any decency as a country.

You don't agree. Fine. You don't have to. But don't think that acting like an asshole about it gets you my vote. You guys may have whipped a bunch of dumbass kids into a rage by feeding them Michael Moore style hate-propaganda, but you equally pissed off a bunch of other folks in the process who showed up to vote just to spite you guys for being such mean-spirited, reactionary, paint-by-numbers, bigoted, closed-minded jerks.

Sorry man, but it's exactly what you looked like here. We saw your disappointment when good economic news came out and your almost desperate desire to deny it. It was written on so many of your faces. We saw your irritation when good news came out of Iraq. It was obvious in your tone and your attitude about it. We aren't stupid you know. You wanted America to fail just so you could take down Shrubbie McHitler the Death Merchant.


Pow! Read the the whole perfectly written thing.

(BTW, I can actually say that I read that before Instapundit linked to it.)

Just DIE, you vile worm!

Chant it with me now, folks!

PULL THAT PLUG! PULL THAT PLUG! PULL THAT PLUG! PULL THAT PLUG!

When Arafat is gone, there's a chance that we might be able to start the peace process between Israel and the "Palestinians". Just maybe. But while that foul crap-pile is still drawing breath, there ain't a chance.

Oh, and while we're at it, what's the chance that we can take that fucking parasite's billions and put them to good use? Yeah, great guy, eh? Steals money from the people he's supposed to be leading and stashes it in his own bank account. Maybe that's why his vulture of a wife lives the life of luxury in Paris.

I'm going to fire up a cigar and down a dram of single malt when that fucker kicks off. I hope he enjoys being gang-raped in hell.

UPDATE: Rob adds some words I can agree with.

For all his blustering, bullying and bastardy he pulled in his life, Arafat is going out the way he should: a broken, decaying shell of a man, rotting from the inside out, being kept alive by machines in the fervent hope that he'll tell his "supporters" where he hid all the money he stole before he dies. What a pathetic figure he is now.

So much for a great martyr.

Doing Their Job

The US Marines have been assaulting Fallujah, along with elements of the US Army and US Air Force. Godspeed and Semper Fidelis. This was a job that should have been done months ago, and if it weren't for the Democrats shrieking about quagmires and lying about our military, I think it WOULD have been done months ago.

In any case, the Marines have been ready to go on a rampage for some time now, and if the State Department would finally get their slimy, dictator coddling asses out of the way, the jarheads will be ripping some shit up.

IMNSHO, if the State Department DOES get in the way, I'd be pleased to see the Marines run right through them, preferably with a complete loss of personell on Foggy Bottom's end.

I remember reading a Marine's response (I think it was Mike, but I'm not sure) to a jack-off who was complaining that the Marine wasn't being polite enough, or some crap like that. The response was very simple:

"I am a Marine. My job is to kill people and break shit. If some good comes out of me killing the right people and breaking the right shit, so much the better. But don't ever forget what my first job is."

OO-RAH, leathernecks! Go kill people and break shit! Don't just do it for your country, do it for all of us who would like to be in your shoes.

Hey World

We're not sorry, you turds.

If I thought I was sick of the Left before, their post-election temper tantrums have made me even sicker. So to any and all Lefties, you can consider this my official one-finger salute to you.

The culture war has just been joined. And I'm not sorry at all.

Thanks, Sondra.

Questioning Their Patriotism

If your blood boils easily or if you suspect thin arterial walls in your brain's blood vessels, ummm, don't click me.

Wishing for "Act of God" to Remove Bush?

Now, with George W. Bush’s re-election, God and a newly triumphant Republican president are once again in the headlines. And there are signs that the present national divide, between the narrow but solid Republican majority and a Democratic party seemingly trapped in second place, may be hardening into a pattern that will persist for years to come.

Democrats, especially, are left to wonder: What will it take to break the pattern - an act of God?
.
.
.
"The Republicans are basically unchecked," Professor Wilentz said. "There is no check in the federal government and no check in the world. They have an unfettered playing field."

Until the next act of God, that is.
Wow.

I'm about to kill my computer

I was away at drill this weekend. Did you know that? No. Do you know why you don't know that? Because when I tried to post about it, Blogger took a big steaming crap on me.

Oh, and when I tried to email Tim to ask him to post about it, the email bounced back. So if you were wondering where the hell I was for the past few days, now you know.

I'll be raging like normal in a bit.
