Why I call Liberals "Dain Bramaged"

aka, "Why Democrats keep losing elections".

I was clearing out the guestbook (drug spammers who are also most likely liberals, as I have yet to see any other group spend so much time doing something so worthless) and I came across the following entry:

get real


Can't you feel the damaged brain-waves just rolling off? I'm thinking it's some pimply faced indoctrinated idiot, most likely in college, studying "Wymen's underwater basket weaving" or some crap like that.

Hell, when I had my dickless little trolls running around pretending to be me and shitting on websites, the dumbfucks STILL couldn't spell correctly or use proper punctuation. Far be it for me to correct anyone's spelling on a daily basis, seeing as how I'm not the greatest at hitting "spellcheck" if you catch my drift, but the trolls were at a 5th grade writing level.

If that.

Nice to see they haven't improved at all.

Anyways, here's me hitting the delete button. *click* Time for a beer.

On the Road Again

I'm going to be heading to San Antonio, most likely in the next week. If you're in that area and wouldn't mind having a beer with some wierd blogger, drop me a line. Just click on my name for the email.

Other than that, life is busy as hell. Can't blog much now, but I'll post when I can.

Oh yes....

How Dare Cheney Speak Only To FOX!

Read:

Cheney could have really kept the American public in the dark by going on Hardball.
BAM!

The RCP Blog: How Dare Cheney Speak Only To FOX!: "Cheney could have really kept the American public in the dark by going on Hardball."

Google plugs its holes

The intriguing thing is that Googling "Tiananmen Square" at Google.com and Google.cn have yielded differing results since Google did their deal with the People's Republic. But there used to be a hole where if one misspelled "Tiananmen" (though I reckon its spelling is unclear) dreadfully, one would get solid results.

Not any more.

Is Google the new Thought Police?


They'll censor web searches in China, they'll censor US blogs for political content, and now they censor videos with political or religious content - but they still won't help us catch pedophiles and child pornographers. And they wonder why their stock is in a nosedive?

About the time their stock price started falling, Google changed their censorship policy and tried to hide that fact.

Just for fun, try typing in “tienneman square” in regular google - you get this with 1,620,000 results - which is about 200,000 less than a couple weeks ago by the way - then go to http://www.google.cn/ and try the same thing. You get this - with about 10,000 results. Funny. I thought Tienneman square was in China. What was I thinking?

Google censors the content of their searches for the government of China, but won’t help catch pedophiles, though Yahoo and Microsoft are helping. Why? Are they trying to build up their pedophile customer base?

I came across the video linked here at Google Video and watched it with no problem a couple weeks ago. Offensive? Maybe to a Muslim, but all it is is Muslim extremists' words put to music really. Did they remove the video because it offends Muslims or because it is persuasive? I can find tons of Google videos that are offensive to Christians, like this one. So it does not appear that Google is being sensitive to religion in general, just to Islam. Since when does Google care about religion, anyway? (To be fair, it should be noted that Google Video hosts anti-Palestinian videos as well as anti-Israeli. Check out the new Michael Jackson tune in that last link. (Yes, I know the numbers are bogus.))

Anyway, I went to see that "It's In the Koran" video again and it was censored. It was no longer there. It was here, and now it is not.

This blog, hosted by Google (as is the one you are looking at now), has a content warning. Why? There are many pornographic blogs hosted by Google with no such content warning. Why does google censor political content but not pornography? There are thousands of blogs far more offensive or hateful than this one that have no such content warning.

Google Inc. no longer believes in free speech apparently. Why would they want to be thought police? That's just bad business, especially for a company at the center of worldwide information aggregation, storage and distribution. I don’t think the recent nosedive in Google’s stock price is just a coincidence.

UPDATE: These people get it:
Eagle Bridge, NY — February 16, 2006 — W Ketchup announced today that it has cancelled all advertising with Google, including both search engine ads and content network ads. The company took this step to protest Google’s agreement to help the Communist regime in China suppress liberty and free expression in that country.

Summing up the situation, Frida Ghitis in the Boston Globe wrote: “Google knows more about us than the FBI or the CIA or the NSA or any spy agency of any government. When a company that holds digital dossiers on millions of people decides profits are more important than principles, we are all at risk.”
I'm gonna go buy me some ketchup.

For some reason that makes me laugh.

Yo, Mark....

Tell me how you REALLY feel why doncha?

Now granted, I'm in complete agreement with you, but I think you're holding back just a wee bit. You gotta let it flow, man!

Enough

The press in this country have debased themselves to the point that they are quite honestly becoming nothing more than a joke, a running gag line. The Communist News Network is STILL running photos of Abu Ghraib, years after the fact, and long after the people responsible for those photos HAVE BEEN SENT TO JAIL. But the clueless fucksticks at CNN refuse to show this picture:



Or any of the other eleven pictures currently outraging the perpetually outraged terrorists in the Middle East.

I don't have to ask who's side they're on. They let me know on a daily basis. This so called "news" network refuses to show the Danish cartoons "out of respect" for muslims, but they obviously have no problem insulting and slandering the US military on a daily basis. This so called "news" network, who allowed Saddam Hussein to dictate what they reported out of Iraq, should change it's name to the Cable Opinion Network. Any claim of objectivity coming from CNN is a fucking joke, and to be honest CON is a much better description of what they currently do. They might as well have their anchors report the news with a "Free Saddam Now!" t-shirt. Or a burkha, since they don't want to offend any muslims by showing this:



Somebody better tell Christine Aramparumpapum or whatever the fuck her name is that showing her face offends the very same muslims she's trying not to offend by not showing those Danish cartoons! Cover up, Christy! You wouldn't want any of those camel-humping sand fleas currently displaying their barbarianism to get upset at you! Now show those years old Abu Ghraib photos again, before somebody thinks that you might actually be on America's side!

No, rather than showing a cartoon, what has the press been harping about? VP Cheney's hunting accident. Bravo, media! As Tony Blankly puts is rather well:

In the absence of any pressing news these days -- other than Iran's nuclear weapons development crisis, the election of Hamas terrorists in Palestine, ongoing worldwide Muslim riots and killing in reaction to a cartoon, Al Gore's near sedition while speaking in Saudi Arabia, the turning over of our East Coast ports to be managed by a United Arab Emirates firm, the criminal leaking of vital NSA secrets to the New York Times, Mexican military incursions across our southern border, the Iraqi crisis, Congress's refusal to deal with the developing financial collapse of Social Security and Medicare, inter alia -- the White House press corp has exploded in righteous fury over the question of the vice president's little shooting party last weekend.


If you haven't seen the media in full meltdown mode, Michelle Malkin has a small transcript.

Peacock Network News correspondent David Gregory, whose self-absorption rivals the leading brand of paper towels, threw a snit fit over the 18-hour delay in public disclosure of the incident. His exchange on Monday with White House press secretary Scott McClellan was a walking advertisement for beta blockers.


McClellan: "David, hold on, the cameras aren't on right now. You can do this later."

Gregory: "Don't accuse me of trying to pose to the cameras. Don't be a jerk to me personally when I'm asking you a serious question."

McClellan: "You don't have to yell."

Gregory: "I will yell! If you want to use that podium to try to take shots at me personally, which I don't appreciate, then I will raise my voice, because that's wrong!"

McClellan: "Calm down, Dave, calm down."

Gregory: "I'll calm down when I feel like calming down!"


Funny thing is, I can't recall the mainstream media melting down over the 30-hour delay Â? presided over by Hillary Clinton, according to internal records Â? in releasing the late White House counsel Vincent Foster's suicide note to authorities and her own husband. Can you?


That's right. They can't show any cartoons, but they can show pictures of Abu Grabass and throw temper tantrums over not being notified RIGHTFUCKINGNOW about a hunting accident. Personally, I'm at the point where I could have a "hunting accident" with half the White House press corps and walk away smiling. I wish somebody would have told those self-absorbed fucknuts "Listen, you stupid shitty little genital warts - Cheney had better things to do than talk to a group of narcissistic asscannons. Shut the fuck up and we'll tell you WHEN we want to tell you. If you don't like it, get the fuck out." I'd pay my entire paycheck to see Scott McClellan say that, I really would. And if Helen Thomas had a heart attack from it and died on the spot, I'd give up my pay for a YEAR.

To me, the national press is mostly one big fucking joke. And they're proving my thesis on a daily basis. Hell, they're already putting on clown suits. I think the reason the press is going after Cheney so hard is because they know we've figured out that they're nothing but a fucking joke, and they're doing what they can to distract us from that fact.

Fuck 'em. If half the papers went out of business tomorrow, I wouldn't shed a fucking tear. Maybe if the entrenched socialist shit suckers were removed, we could have REAL press reporting the news.

But for now, we're stuck with CON. Cable Opinion Network. I'm keeping that phrase. It fits.

UPDATE: Ooooo, this is good! Analog Kid has a link to this post, which is a written equivilent of whipping out your johnson and smacking someone in the face with it.

And not in a good way.

When the reporters and editors said they would die before giving up their First Amendment rights, that was bravado. Only empty phrases. They only meant that they reserved the right to mock your religion if they were sure that, while you might be upset, and you might say you would kill them, you wouldn't really do it. They can stand up to angry words with no problem.

But when it came the time that there was an actual chance that they might really die or be hurt in defense of their First Amendment rights, that's different, that's serious. they showed that their principles were only to be upheld when it was easy and cheap.

More about Pappy

Michelle Malkin

It's getting a little Narcissistic....

...over at Right-Thinking.

Lee seems like a decent sort of a fella and he's got some nice traffic over there, I am sure, but excerpting from other blogs waxing lovingly about one's self?

Reminds me of this girl I knew at college. Her nose was a little big. That's it. Everything else was perfect (or so it seemed; I only saw her clothed).

When classes would get tough for her, she'd go into her room, lock the door, and crank Everybody Wants You by Billy Squire. And she hadn't really dug into the words. She was that vain.

A letter the MSM doesn't want you to read

Greyhawk at Mudville Gazette received a letter from a family member of a 3rd Armored Cav Regiment, from the mayor of Tall 'Afar, a city in Iraq. For some reason I can't connect to the Mudville Gazette right now, so I'll link to the post I found the info at. Baby Troll Blog tipped me off. And I'm going to post the entire letter, because it needs to be read. I strongly encourage everyone to post the letter on their blog (and let people know where it came from, if you can get to the Mudville Gazette).

Read on, people. The letter that the MSM doesn't want you to read. By the way, all emphasis in this letter is mine.

In the Name of God the Compassionate and Merciful

To the Courageous Men and Women of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who have changed the city of Tall’ Afar from a ghost town, in which terrorists spread death and destruction, to a secure city flourishing with life.

To the lion-hearts who liberated our city from the grasp of terrorists who were beheading men, women and children in the streets for many months.

To those who spread smiles on the faces of our children, and gave us restored hope, through their personal sacrifice and brave fighting, and gave new life to the city after hopelessness darkened our days, and stole our confidence in our ability to reestablish our city.

Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city. Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi’s followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zumar and Avgani finally destroyed them.

I have met many soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment; they are not only courageous men and women, but avenging angels sent by The God Himself to fight the evil of terrorism.

The leaders of this Regiment; COL McMaster, COL Armstrong, LTC Hickey, LTC Gibson, and LTC Reilly embody courage, strength, vision and wisdom. Officers and soldiers alike bristle with the confidence and character of knights in a bygone era. The mission they have accomplished, by means of a unique military operation, stands among the finest military feats to date in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and truly deserves to be studied in military science. This military operation was clean, with little collateral damage, despite the ferocity of the enemy. With the skill and precision of surgeons they dealt with the terrorist cancers in the city without causing unnecessary damage.

God bless this brave Regiment; God bless the families who dedicated these brave men and women. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the families. They have given us something we will never forget. To the families of those who have given their holy blood for our land, we all bow to you in reverence and to the souls of your loved ones. Their sacrifice was not in vain. They are not dead, but alive, and their souls hovering around us every second of every minute. They will never be forgotten for giving their precious lives. They have sacrificed that which is most valuable. We see them in the smile of every child, and in every flower growing in this land. Let America, their families, and the world be proud of their sacrifice for humanity and life.

Finally, no matter how much I write or speak about this brave Regiment, I haven’t the words to describe the courage of its officers and soldiers. I pray to God to grant happiness and health to these legendary heroes and their brave families.

NAJIM ABDULLAH ABID AL-JIBOURI
Mayor of Tall 'Afar, Ninewa, Iraq


But remember, Ted Kennedy thinks that Iraq is a quagmire, and the Democrats in general want to immidiately withdraw from Iraq and label it a failure.

Keep that in mind in 2006.

Asking for trouble in Italy

Attaguy!

Italy's Reform Minister Roberto Calderoli has had T-shirts made emblazoned with cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in a move that could embarrass Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government.

Calderoli, a member of the anti-immigrant Northern League party, told Ansa news agency on Tuesday that the West had to stand up against Islamist extremists and offered to hand out T-shirts to anyone who wanted them.

"I have had T-shirts made with the cartoons that have upset Islam and I will start wearing them today," Ansa quoted Calderoli as saying.

He said the T-shirts were not meant to be a provocation but added that he saw no point trying to appease extremists.

"We have to put an end to this story that we can talk to these people. They only want to humiliate people. Full stop. And what are we becoming? The civilization of melted butter?" Calderoli said.

Cheney's hunting accident

OK, so the VP goes on a hunting trip and accidentally shoots one of his hunting partners. He doesn't let the press know for 24 hours. The press goes apeshit.

Yawn.

You want to know why the press went apeshit? Because they missed an opportunity to embarass the VP on a Sunday, when they have the most people reading their newspapers. THAT is why Scott McClellan was subjected to one gigantic temper tantrum thrown by the worthless goat-fucking peons that make up the White House press briefings.

Any organization that has Helen Thomas sitting front and center doesn't deserve one bit of respect.

Here's my question: Why should the VP give one damn thing to the press when all they've done for six years is villify him to an extent not seen since Richard Nix on? Cheney and his group was rather busy getting his buddy to the hospital (where he's making a rather nice recovery, btw). I'm sure that he had better things to do than report an accident to a group of vultures who would only use the news to make him look bad in newspapers nationwide.

You know how I know that the White House press corps are a bunch of brain-dead ass cannons? Because every time they say "I have one question" they immidiately fire off more than one. If they can't count, you know they can't be too smart. It's not that hard. You can do it on one hand. Look, watch me. "ONE!" (and I'm sticking out my thumb as I count, really I am.) See? Easy. But the reporters in the White House don't seem to be able to handle simple math. I can't say I'm surprized.

What really makes me laugh is all the people coming up with their tin-foil hat theories. "CHENEY WAS TRYING TO KILL HIM!" Right, because as every good hunter knows, birdshot at thirty feet is SOOOOOOOO lethal! And if that didn't work, Cheney was gonna give the guy a really bad purple nurfel! Not to make light of the guy's injuries, but for pete's sake, the people claiming that Cheney was trying to kill the guy are mental rejects! Riding the short bus to their special "skool"!

The bottom line in all of this is that the press once again showed just how biased and worthless they are. Personally, if I were the President and VP, I'd just stop having press conferences. Seriously, I'd end them all. "Yeah, I know you people think you're important, but get the fuck off my lawn. 'Ol Dick is mean with a shotgun, as I'm sure you all know, and that fucker is loaded with rocksalt." At this point "reporter" is synonomous with "lawyer" in terms of how little respect those professions deserve.

And I'm talking miniscule here, baby. Microscopic. When someone announces that they're a reporter, I immidiately know that they are college rejects who couldn't get a real job if their life depended on it. If they weren't working at a newspaper, they'd be flipping burgers when they were 35. Hell, maybe all the way into their forties. Those that can, do. Those that can't, teach. Those that can't teach, report.

Has anyone checked to see if Helen Thomas is actually alive, or are her body movements just the result of gasses from decomposition?

So anyways, the only thing the press did this weekend was show how important they THINK they are. The rest of us with more than half a brain understand that they're nothing more than bloviating fucktards who don't have enough IQ to tie their shoes without help.

You know what I call a White House press briefing? A target rich environment. Oh yeah, baby. C'mon you little bastards, I got your "Next Question" right here!

Can you tell that I'm running on no sleep? Damn, I thought so.

Another example of why I left Seattle

Gregory "Pappy" Boyington.

Marine. Fighter pilot. Ace. Medal of Honor recipient.

(Side note: He was born in Coeur d'Alene, ID, my hometown. Probably not interesting to anyone but myself.)

Boyington is most famous for the "Black Sheep Squadron" during WWII.

Having received no squadron assignment of his own, Boyington worked to build one himself. Adopting the unused Marine designation of VMF-214 he assembled a group of men that would be forever known as The Black Sheep Squadron.

The Black Sheep were a mixture of other unassigned pilots and a group of misfits that were close to being discharged for disciplinary actions. It was from this group Boyington received his nickname of Pappy since he was ten years or more older than any of the other Black Sheep.

Over the next three months the Black Sheep Squadron would become famous for having downed 94 Japanese aircraft while also destroying over one hundred more upon the ground. Of these 94 Japanese kills Boyington would have nineteen himself. Five of these would even be done in one day.


In short, Boyington did was Marines do. Take charge and kick ass.

Now, you might be wondering just why I brought all of this up. It's because the University of Washington in Seattle has just rejected a proposal to build a memorial for Col Boyington, who happened to be a UW grad.

If you needed any proof that the UW is nothing but another crack-smoking, kool-aid drinking shithole of Leftist ideology, here it is. And it's not just the UW. The suburb of Fremont has a STATUE OF VLADAMIR LENIN IN THE TOWN SQUARE, FOR G-D'S SAKE!

The minutes to the UW senate meeting are here, and include such wonderful memos such as:

Jill Edwards said she didn’t’ believe a member of the Marine Corps was
an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce.

Ashley Miller commented that many monuments at UW already
commemorate rich white men.


Oh yeah. That's moonbats at their frothiest. And you can check out the announcements at the bottom of the minutes:

Magnus Gordon encouraged senators and their constituents to come to the
HUB crawl for go-cart racing and a poetry slam on February the 16th.

Hala Dillsi noted that GBLTC is having auditions for the drag show this week.

Selma Dillsi said APS is having its annual Human Rights Film Fest on February
15th-19th.

Jill Edwards noted that Honors Croquet League is holding a match this
Saturday.

Ashley Miller said this Thursday during noon passing periods groups would be
playing The Privilidge Game in front of the HUB.

It was noted that tickets for the Vagina Monologues are currently available in the
HUB ticket office.

Jon Lee said Innocence Project Northwest is having a screening at the Burke
Museum regarding the death penalty.

Karl Smith noted the ACLU is having a meeting in Kane Hall this Saturday.


Let's see here..... Vagina Monologues (always a Leftist favorite!), GLBTS drag show auditioins (Because while men ogling women at a strip club is "sexist", having a gay man dance around in a feathered thong is "diversity"!), Human Rights Film Festivals, and poetry slams! But don't honor a Medal of Honor recipient!

Liberalism is a mental disorder, folks. There's no other explination. As a side note, if you have any kids that are getting ready to attend college, perhaps learning more about the school would be benificial to you. Me, I'd rather go to WSU than UW any day of the week.

Hell, given my druthers I'd be going to the University of Idaho. But since I'm currently in Puerto Rico, that's somewhat difficult.

Hat tip to Analog Kid.

Hot Diggity!

Mr. Poretto is on a roll. In case you missed it, I linked to his essay, "The Hour of the Knife" in this post. Now he's got part two of that essay posted.

Please, go read.
