There's this thingy on the intarweb
What makes it so damn funny is that it sounds just like the moonbats. It's only funny because it's TRUE, right?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I'll let Sondra K take over from here. Just look at the stunning brainlessness, and remember that these people supposedly are Americans.

bullying and kids who snap
Here are a few statistics to think about...
According to the Virginia Youth Violence Project, published by the Curry School of Education in March of 2001, in the year 97-98 35 children were murdered at school, but 2,717 children were murdered outside of school.
More children died of the flu and pneumonia than are killed at school. Every day dozens of kids are killed in car accidents.
School shootings are a rare phenomenon and cause a startling misconception that youth violence is on the rise, when it is in fact on the decline.
This report also states that "fear clouds an objective, rational analysis of the problem." According to the National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center's report on school violence published in 2002 the rate of nonfatal violent crimes at school declined from 48 per 1,000 students in 1992 to 33 per 1000 in 1999, and the rate of more serious violent crimes such as rape, sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated assault was 7 out of every 1000 students while at school or going to and from school.
This report also states that "bullying continues to be a serious problem, particularly in middle schools".
According to Bullystoppers.com 80% of adolescents reported being bullied during school, 90% of fourth through eighth graders report being victims of bullying, and most bullying is verbal.
According to atruimsoc.org "recent study, 77% of the students said they had been bullied.
And 14% of those who were bullied said they experienced severe (bad) reactions to the abuse". This study also said "peaks in the sixth through eight grades" and states that "282,000 students are physically attacked in secondary schools each month".
According to Carmen D. McDowell in his analysis on Washington State School District Policies in 2002 "The widespread reporting of bullying in schools by students is in direct contrast to reports of bullying that make it into school safety and crime reports collected at the federal level" due to the fact that "very few bullying incidents in schools are reported as crimes".
Looking at these statistics, I say we support our school in, and enforce our expectations of our schools to have no tolerance for physical bullying. If we do this, then we will be protecting our future and preventing further Columbines!
I don't buy Newsweek
Case in point? The perfect takedown by Cap'n Jim on a Newsweek article about guns. I can't excerpt any one part. You've got to read the whole thing.
And by the way, Jim also has the notification of Chicago's gun grabbers doing what they do best - violating the 2nd Amendment, shitting all over civil rights, and acting like the damn communists they are.
An elderly first-generation Chicago resident was recently paid a visit by an Illinois State Police trooper. After asking to come inside the man's home, the trooper asked if the man owned a gun - to which he replied yes. The trooper then directed the individual to surrender the firearm. The man complied with the officer's demand and the trooper left with the gun. And the story gets better...
The gun in question was purchased legally by the man in the 1970s shortly after he became a U.S. citizen. When Chicago's infamous gun registration scheme went into effect in the early 1980s, the man registered the firearm as per the requirement. However, over the years, the fellow apparently forgot to re-register the firearm, and forgot to renew his Illinois FOID Card.
If you want to see what the
Fucking anti-American communists.
We should post this at the borders
The comment, in it's entirety:
When you come to my country, from the sh*thole called home, and are welcomed here with a chance to improve your lives, then my country is the standard of measurement, not yours!
Don't bring your (unwanted) standards here.
Practice your religion as you wish as a peaceful, PRIVATE matter. Blend in or GO HOME.
If you don't like ham, toss it in the trash.
Furthermore, don't ever expect me to change "the system" for you. You change to my system or again, GO HOME. I'm not tailoring my life around you. You adjust to me and the majotity.
You want to bring your religious customs here and impose them on me, then that's a HATE crime on your part against me.
Remember my country is the standard now. Your country has the standard you ran
away from. You don't like mine, GO HOME.
I'm sick and tired of watching my customs, values, traditions, religion,religious symbols and the sense of comfort and well being that these things bring, those that we have toiled and died for, being usurped and washed away because some immigrant couldn't stand his own country any longer so came here to change mine.
If you are a guest in my home, live by my rules. If I'm a guest in your home, I'll live by yours. But damn it, I'm not selling my country to you.
If you want to take away or alter what I hold dear, then you are commiting HATE against me.
Lets put the PC Bullsh*t, where it belongs, in the trash, or we'll be submitting to someone elses way of life.
Let's put the self loathing, cultural sell out, spineless, PC crowd in their place for once, those who would condemn me and my countrymen for refusing to sell our souls to another culture or religion or for resisting becoming the sh*thole of a country these people came from.
It's time to stand up and demand our own rights for a change. If I'm called a bigot or islamophobe for doing so, then so be it. I'm not caving in without a good fight and I am not going to be the one to do all the accomodating!
Immigrant, you accomodate or GO HOME!
What a crazy world we live in
But even if today that political solution was found, we cannot rationally think
that our terrorist enemies like Al Qaeda in Iraq will simply vanish.
Al Qaeda is not mass murdering civilians on the streets of Baghdad because it wants a more equitable distribution of oil revenues. Its aim in Iraq is not to get a seat at
the political table.
It wants to blow up the table—along with everyone seated at it. Al Qaeda wants to destroy any prospect for democracy in Iraq, and it will not be negotiated or reasoned out of existence. It must be fought and defeated through force of arms. And there can be no withdrawal, no redeployment from this reality.

These politicians don’t support the troops or anything that they are doing. The troops want a victory in Iraq. If nothing else to say that our friends, our comrades who fought beside us and never made it home, did not die in vain. I dont know many Marines like myself, who haven’t had a friend or brother die. Most know several, sometimes too many, who never made it home to the freedom of our great country. And that is a shame. To say that these great men who died for our country did it all for nothing is a travesty and does no honor to their memories.
I am not saying that Republicans are any better, personally I feel that our political party system needs a serious renovation. The way both parties have used the troops as a bargaining tool is personally sickening to me. Using human life as a chip to cash in for political power is disgusting. And thats what they are all doing. It just seems that as of right now the Republicans are the lesser evil in the political nightmare of the war.
I've been watching the train-wreck of a Congress with something approaching horror mixed with nausea. I don't know whether to scream myself hoarse or just vomit for hours on end. There is a real war going on, with real people and real consequences, and yet all Congress can think about is how much pork they can pull out of our tax dollars, or how many seats they can win by using the military as nothing more but political pawns, and if millions of Iraqis have to die, well a sixty-seat majority in Congress is worth it to them!
What's worse, is that with each craven statement they make, more people will die. The terrorists know that if they kill enough people in spectacular fashion, the
That's all the
So the Senate passed the surrender bill tonight. Bush had damn well better veto it, otherwise more people will die and nobody in their right mind will trust this country at all. And do you know who will do the dying? Not just the Iraqis who are trying to get their country going without allowing Iran to take over.
No, it'll be Americans as well. Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, and Airmen, who will face the onslaught of terrorists hellbent on driving America out of Iraq even quicker, since they already know that they
And the fact that there are people out there advocating for our surrender, who just happen to be MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, well, it makes me want to puke. If the people of this country are so craven, such a sniveling pack of cowards and opportunists, then I really wonder if this country is worth defending at all?
If we beg for our own defeat, and willingly accept the death of people who we've told we would protect, what are we good for?
If we surrender at the mere thought of a challenge, and refuse to defend ourselves, do we deserve to exist as a country?
Why should I defend people who refuse to defend themselves?

If you have daughters
Still catching up with the news
Here's my take on it - there is nothing in the Constitution than mentions abortions. For that matter, there's nothing in the Constitution that mentions medical procedures period.
As such, the Constitution has nothing to do with it. Period. End of story. You don't have a constitutional right to drive, do you? No, you don't. The Constitution has nothing to do with that either.
Therefore, the government has the ability to legislate abortion. And if they want to ban partial birth abortion, good on them. I personally am against stabbing a baby in the back of the head with a needle attached to a vacume hose and then sucking it's brain out, right before you cut it in half so that it can be removed with ease. And I won't vote for any candidate who doesn't have a problem with it.

Oh dear lord...
I really don't know if there's enough words in the English language to describe just what I want to say to that fucking cowardly shitstain. But, they say that a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
When Harry the worthless fucknozzle finally kicks the bucket, thus helping increase the collective IQ of the planet with his absence, I will be more than happy to piss on his grave. He shouldn't be in Congress, he should be in jail FOR TREASON.

UPDATE: Here's a few tasty quotes from that miserable shitstain Reid, if you haven't gotten enough.
BASH: You talked several times about General Petraeus. You know that he is here in town. He was at the White House today, sitting with the president in the Oval Office and the president said that he wants to make it clear that Washington should not be telling him, General Petraeus, a commander on the ground in Iraq, what to do, particularly, the president was talking about Democrats in Congress.
He also said that General Petraeus is going to come to the Hill and make it clear to you that there is progress going on in Iraq, that the so-called surge is working. Will you believe him when he says that?REID: No, I don't believe him, because it's not happening. All you have to do is look at the facts.
Right. That worthless pile of maggot-filled crap Reid actually thinks he knows the situation in Iraq better than the General who's in charge. Oh, and he basically stated that the General was a liar right off.
That corrupt, lying slimebag Reid is just another example of how the
If I ever have a chance, I'm going to kick that gutless coward Reid's scrotum so hard that his shriveled, useless testicles pop out his nostrils.

Dunno if you've seen this
That's right, beeyotches. We know who our friends are. And by god, we remember.
I wish I was surprised
The commander in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus, returns to Washington this week, but last week Pelosi’s office said “scheduling conflicts” prevented him from briefing House members. Two days later, the members-only meeting was scheduled, but the episode brings to mind the fact that Pelosi and other top House Democrats skipped a Pentagon videoconference with Petraeus on March 8.If you want any more proof that the

I must admit, I haven't blogged on it much because my personal comments when I first read his remarks would have melted your moniters and left blisters on your CPU. Now that I've calmed down a bit, I can give you a small idea of how I feel.
Harry Reid should be tried for treason, for aiding and comforting the enemy. And when he's found guilty, he should be hung from the neck until dead.
Now, before anyone tries to day "But Dave, blah blah blah" just keep in mind that the
The American Communist Party isn't doing that. It's like they're reading straight out of Al Queda's plans and putting them into action. And while I often say that Congresscritters have an ambient room-temp IQ, there has to be a few people smart enough to tap them on the shoulder and say "Uh, senator, perhaps you need to rethink what you're going".
So what all of this tells me is that the

And that, my friends, is treason. Dingy Harry Reid needs to be charged with it. Expelled out of the country, or hung for his actions.
There, I managed to type all of this without calling Reid a smeared shit-stain on the discarded underwear of humanity.
Washington —- The House passed legislation Friday aimed at restraining compensation for corporate executives by letting shareholders take an annual advisory vote on their pay.
Shareholder advocates believe that "say on pay" votes would discourage boards of directors from approving lavish compensation packages for top executives.
"The CEOs don't own the company," Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), the bill's chief sponsor, said during the debate. "The shareholders own the company" and deserve an opportunity to speak out on management's pay, he said.
You're right, Bawney Fwank, the CEO's don't own the company. They're simple the ones who are IN CHARGE OF RUNNING THE COMPANY AND MAKING SHAREHOLDERS MONEY!
The GOC has his own suggestion, and I think it's a good one.
Limit CEO pay? Let's limit congressional pay. Bastards!Sounds good to me. Let's start cutting the pay of all those bastards on Capitol Hill. Every last corrupt son-of-a-bitch who's currently sitting in Congress, let's take 25% right off the top. They vote themselves a pay raise every year, don't they? So why don't we take Bawney Fwank's suggestion and apply it to our representatives?
Fair is fair, right?
By the way, the GOC is where I got my latest desktop picture.

Professor threatens herself
Sheriff's investigators arrested and charged a Calhoun Community College instructor (Penelope Blankenship) with making a terrorist threat against herself following the Virginia Tech massacre.Irony: Blankenship is a Criminal Justice instructor.
She's accused of leaving threatening voice mail messages against herself. The messages made reference to Monday's Virginia Tech massacre, saying "you next," according to a campus police report.
Campus police also received a threatening phone call in connection with the same incident.
The caller was initially identified as a former student of Blankenship's, but further investigation indicated that the calls came from Blankenship herself, through Calhoun's switchboard to campus security and to her own voice mail, investigators said.
More irony, from the Calhoun CC website:
Showing the students how to print a suspect? LOL
And lastly, just a bit more irony from Blankenship's RateMyProfessor.com page:
"Experience", indeed. As for sharing stories, she'll have a doozie for next semester.
