What flooding, let's party
But it sure is easy for these people to blame the federal government when a hurricane hits their shores and they are unprepared. Blaming the Katrina disaster on anyone but themselves is ridiculous. Everyone is still trying to point fingers when the largest responsibility for the Katrina mess sits right at home.
Sorry if this is tired by now. But when the failed response to the disaster happened, all I could hear myself say in my head was "Maybe if they didn't party so much and spent a little more time getting prepared for an eventual disaster that could strike a city that's below sea level, then maybe the mess could have been lessened".
Now I understand that a little venting, like holding a Mardi Gras parade in light of the still looming disaster, can help morale. But in my mind it still somehow points to the fact that partying seems to be the focus of this town, not doing what needs to be done for a town under sea level.
I'm hoping that some lesson has been learned. Hopefully their focus will be a little more on preventing such a disaster in the future.

The Clinton Legacy
Here are some interesting notes about the Clionton admin. that are shown on the link.
- The only president ever impeached on grounds of personal malfeasance
- Most number of convictions and guilty pleas by friends and associates*
- Most number of cabinet officials to come under criminal investigation
- Most number of witnesses to flee country or refuse to testify
- Most number of witnesses to die suddenly
- First president sued for sexual harassment.
- First president accused of rape.
- First first lady to come under criminal investigation
- Largest criminal plea agreement in an illegal campaign contribution case
- First president to establish a legal defense fund.
- First president to be held in contempt of court
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions
- Greatest amount of illegal campaign contributions from abroad
- First president disbarred from the US Supreme Court and a state court
Compared with the Bush Administration.
- Indictments (1) Scooter Libby
What does this all mean....Well comparing the current President to former Presidents all the way back to Nixon....George W. Bush has run the cleanest adminstration in HALF A CENTURY!
P.S. Just a little fun fact for those who want the Clintons back in office.

"The picture of me and Hillary Clinton was taken when she came to visit Iraq. IWhat a dope she is. No matter where she goes she seems to step in it.
was actually ordered to shake her hand, and I never figured that my friends
would circulate it all over the net. I AM NOT a Hillary fan by any stretch."

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a terrorist thing, because then all the liberals will say that all the anti-terrorism task forces and precautions that have been put into effect don't work and that the only way we catch terrorists is when they are involved in random high speed freeway collisions.
If Karma truly exists, I foresee three miniatures hurricanes hitting a certain three city councilpersons in the near future. Don't get me wrong; I tend to somewhat agree with the sentiment. At this time you certainly don't want to have to spend all of the cities money on people who choose to suckle at the government teat, but I don't think it's realistic to dump your problems on those who came to your aid to begin with. Unbelievable.
So, I guess we have to stop stereotyping bikers now, blogust. Cause sure, some of them may go around shooting up casinos and being infiltrated by Brian Bosworth, but some of them are just proud Americans with a moral compass on par with my own. And I rule. So, go bikers!!!

Personally, I agree that a person’s religious beliefs should not have to be compromised as long as they do not compromise or impose upon the beliefs of others. I do not believe that one’s convictions need to be enforced upon others. I also believe that if your religion prohibits you and your children from drawing a family portrait or a picture of a dog, then you should be free to draw a rock or a stick instead, receiving full credit for the assignment. But to take away the right of other children to draw Mommy, Daddy and Rover under the big oak out back is a disgusting display of poor judgment on the part of our teachers. If we continue to bow under the guise of tolerance to those who are most intolerant, how do we ever expect them to see that there are two sides to every coin? What we should be teaching is that our way of life is as important to us as theirs is to them, and while we recognize and respect their beliefs, we expect the same in turn. That’s called compromise, and it is a far greater lesson than blind tolerance.
Privatized medicine is better
First off, it was published in the SF Chronicle. Wow, how did this get by the editor? Ok, I kid. There are surprisingly more conservative articles in this paper than I expect. Like 3 a year.
Secondly, it praises the merits of Starbucks, Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, Craigs-List, and even fast food chains ("Doc-in-a-box")! Wow, you mean capitalism works?
Thirdly, via privatized medicine people without insurace all get to benefit from the cost saving ability, power, and pure problem solving capability of Capitalism. And its being praised in the SF Chron!!
Forthly, these new "Doc-in-a-box" clinics put pressure on bigger hospitals to lower their costs. Hey, competition makes for a better product and lowers cost.
I could go on but I'll stop here and focus on Socialized medicine. With Socialized medicine you put all the decision making power into the hands of the government. Cost structure, facility locations, facility quality, hours of operation, payment options, specializations, equipment purchases, etc. will all be controlled by the government. That's a lot to consider, and that's just what I can come up with and I'm not even that familiar with the totality of all things to consider when running a medical business.
OK, have any of you ever had to deal with the DMV?? I'm sure you have. Now why, why, why would you want to take something as important as health care and turn it into one of the most painful processes known to man kind: Vehicle Registration. My goodness, the lines, the forms, the limited hours of operation, the pain!
I'll stop right there. Enough said in my opinion. I'm shivering with fear at the thought of Socialized anything, let alone Socialized medicine. "Doc-in-a-box" shops are the brilliant creations that only Capitalism can come up with.
Now... The Achilles heel: Lawyers. A couple of idiotic lawsuits and these great companies get smashed by those leeches looking only to serve themselves. But that topic is for another post that is brewing, and it will cover more than health care costs.

Anyway, before I go...here is something I saw from Bareknucklepolitics.com. It is quite gruesome, so please...don't open if you don't like gross. The author tells us that "an eye for an eye" is very much apart of Islamic Law. Once you link, scroll down to the comments and read his context.
I wish this wasn't my last post before I bolted, but I like this kind of stuff sometimes and I think it is important to show how backwards parts of the world still remains. I know, I know, this is apart of their culture and I should be more understanding Right? I mean am I allowed to be judgemental of other peoples values and traditions? If we judge them wont they judge us? etc. The answers to these questions are WRONG, YES, THEY ALREADY ARE. Oops, timesaver again.

I have decided to pay out 100 million doll-hairs to anyone who goes over there and teaches these people the difference between a killable offense and satire. But I'm going to need proof. Like, cleric panties or something.

And to Willie Nelson, who decided to take it upon himself to out the entire state of Texas and beyond, what happened to you? You're dead to me.
Truthfully, I think the situation is pretty funny, but if you're going to do an interview like that you can't half-ass it like this Milbanks character did. I mean, is it enough to merely don the hunting orange? I say no. I say it's an affront to our intelligence. Get someone with some comic wherewithal to write you some quality material, for crying out loud. Manicurists talking about global warming? There's potential there, but alas, Wilbanks is unable to deliver. Crickets, people, crickets.
As far as the incident itself, several people have posed the question, in both polite and impolite conversation, as to whether Cheney should be charged with manslaughter should Harry Whittington keel over as a result of the shooting. Tough question, if you ask me. I mean, you or I would probably take it in the keester over something like that, but you and I didn't go through all the bullshit hassle it takes to become Vice President of the United States of America. I say Cheney gets a pass. Seriously, Whittington's a lawyer anyway, so if you think Cheney should go down for this, I don't ever want to here the words, "What do you call 1,000 dead lawyers..."come out of your mouth.

"Coca has more calcium than milk. It should be part of the school breakfast,"
As most of you know, coca leaf is used to make cocaine and Shemp was once a coca farmer. Does that mean he wants to harvest coca in order to make cocaine? I don't know, but I now know the nutritional value.
A coca leaf weighing 100 grams contains 18.9 calories of protein, 45.8 mgSounds nutritious to me and maybe it will get kids to pay attention in class.
of iron, 1540 mg of calcium and vitamins A, B1, B2, E and C, which is more than
most nuts, according to a 1975 study by a group of Harvard
Even though I have enjoyed the X-Men since I was a kid and I loved the movies, I argue that Superman will be the movie that comes out on top. Here is why...Brian Singer. Brian Singer, who directed the first two X-Men, decided to skip out on X-Men 3 and do Superman instead. Why? I don't know, but he did and he took his crew along with him. So instead, Bret Ratner has been the one directing X-Men 3. The same Bret Ratner who brought us Rush Hour, Rush Hour 2, Money Talks, Red Dragon and After the Sunset. Not a very fine resume if you ask me. Being a sports fan, I know how important a good coach and a good crew is and I can't see Bret Ratner beating Brian Singer's proven record, but I will concede to three points.
1. Superman sorta blows
2. X-men doesn't blow
3. Maybe Ratner inherited a good team like Seifert did with the 49ers.
It doesn't stop there for me either. I am also arguing that D.C. will top Marvel as a whole. Batman Begins was a great movie and looks like the Batman comic is going to take on Al-Qaeda. It might sound silly, but I learned this from reading Ace Of Spades website who linked to Geek Soap Box. Here is the link
Ace also went on to say
Meanwhile, over at Marvel, the Punisher is railing against theAny response?
industrial-military complex and Bush's phoney war.
It's Curious George, you a-holes!!!

I'd be very pleased if Hillary Clinton would become the next American president
Later on he admitted that he hasn't been very popular of late and hopes that it doesn't rub off on Hillary.
But don't quote me too loud. I hope I'm not harming her by saying that.
Sorry Gerhard...it's too late!
If you ask me, he made this statement in order to bandage his bruised ego. Schroeder lost to Angela Merkel, who became the first woman Chancellor of Germany, last year and I think that he would see it as "Bush losing to a woman" if Clinton wins in '08. But I am just being petty.
The article says that Moe has demanded Tony Blair to give the Falklands back to Argentina. He also says that Tony Blair is a "pawn of imperialism" and is "the main ally of Hitler," a.k.a. George Bush...How original.
According to the article, these comments came on the heels to some remarks that Tony Blair said recently.
Mr Blair infuriated Mr Chavez earlier this week when he said he should respect
the rules of the international community.
The Prime Minister also said he would prefer to see Venezuela's ally Cuba function as a true democracy
So Moe is sticking up for Fidel "Larry" Castro. You know, I have this feeling that once Larry kicks the bucket, Moe is going to try to move in on Cuba. What do you think? Am I reaching?

I've known more than my fair share of borderline retarded Brits in my life. It's sad that people like Gwynny and Madonna are so easily duped by a proper accent. Even, "I had a poo in the loo" sounds shockingly sophisticated to these simpleton bitches.

Hugo Chavez has to be Moe. He is clearly today's top Stooge. Despite the fact that Moe Chavez has been involved in political fraud, human rights violations, coup after coup (for and against) as well as, being the leader of a country with a collapsing infrastructure, low employment, high crime rate and finishing it off with a nice dose anti-american blather, this man is still standing. A UN Award and praise from some of our most egregious celebrities is what he instead has to endure.
Castro in my opinion is Larry. Eventhough he has been doing it longer, he appears to be more of Moe's lacky rather than the top Dictator he once was. Plus, if you shave his beard and glue it to his head, I think he will show a striking resemblance.
Because of his bull haircut, Evo Morales had to be Moe or Shemp and so Shemp it was. Sadly, I know very little about this Stooge's work, but that is only fitting for I also know very little about the original Shemp. Except of course for the occasional "HEY GUYS THE THREE STOOGES ARE ON...GOD DAMN IT! IT'S SHEMP!" Anyway, this Stooge compaigned on the platform that he would allow for a loose federation for coca-leaf production...YEAH!
Harry Belafonte and Cindy Sheehan are Curly and Curly Joe respectively. Take what these two have to say about our country and our president, add a few...nyook nyook nyooks...and these two become a laugh riot. Lets give it a try "No Blood For Oil..nyook nyook nyook." or "Bush is Tens time the terrorist of Osama Bin Laden...Wise guy eh? nyook nyook nyook." Anyway, I am laughing.

Here's the problem with this sort of thing. When you get into arguments regarding freedom of speech, I think you expect a certain amount of rationality. Scratch that, I think that's what our founding fathers expected. I, myself believe you should be allowed to get up on a soapbox and voice your opinions, whatever they may be. But let's try to be human and maybe skip putting up our soapboxes at funerals. These people are some sick ass nutjobs. And for the record, as much as I feel they should be allowed to spew this crap, I really wish they wouldn't. It makes me want to cut off my thumbs and shit in the woods.

We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there. But Coretta
knew and we knew that there were weapons of misdirection right down here.
Millions without health insurance, poverty abound, for war billions more,
but no more for the poor.
While Jimmy Carter took a more relevant approach.
It was difficult for them [the King family] then personally with the civil
liberties of both husband and wife violated as they became the target of
secret government wiretaps.
Needless to say, I am not impressed nor am I shocked. It is not unusual for the Libs to play on peoples emotions during a time of mourning. Pandering is the Dems only form of recourse and these two turned this funeral into a Democratic convention. Will it work? Will it arouse the base and give them something to rally around?....Ummmm? I am going to wait on that one.
You can do something for me...So you know about those cartoons the almost
"unheardof-till-now" Danish newspaper printed that has many Muslims upset?
I've been on the www for a few hours now reading and I would like you to visit
some links. Maybe you can post something on your blog about
it.This morning's paper had a story about a murdered 60-something year old
priest who was shot by an apparent late-teenage-ish man who yelled "Allah akbar"
(God is great) before blasting the guy twice, in the back, while at prayer. It
happened in Turkey where the Christian population is very small. Jann read the
story to me as I cooked eggs. It got me thinking about the cartoons,
specifically the one with Muhammed with a bomb as a turban; when they (Muslims)
act like that, in the name of their god, how else should he be represented? I
know, I know, he's not supposed to be represented at all because they don't want
to worship idols, but if I want to represent Allah in some form I should be able
to because I'm not a follower. Just like the kid who ignored the Judeo-Christian
ethic/rule of "thou shall not kill", incidentally coming directly from one of
the first written documents of the Old Testament brought to us by a Jewish
holy-man, Moses, a thousand years before Islam even exsisted, and shot a priest,
at church, in the back, twice. Right?!?So I started reading articles on various
websites and found a lot of interesting stuff like this one:
thought to myself, "Oh, yeah, that's real original, like I've never seen
anti-Jewish cartoons before or heard someone claim the Holocaust is a hoax" And
what the heck is the publication Hamshahri doing anyway? Newspapers are always
printing offensive things and then they apologize and retract the article and
blah blah blah; that's what they do, and if you don't like what the paper says,
you unsubscribe yourself and get the paper that makes fun of the people you want
to see made fun of. With that, on to these sites:
The first article is pretty good, I'm not sure about the slant of the rest of the site but...The last two are from a site I think is particularly interesting as it attempts to bring together Hinduism and Judaism. Anyway, I wasn't really surprised to find that Muslim papers have been printing their own incredibly offensive cartoons of people and beliefs not in line with their own. The difference is when other people are offended they write a letter and let it be known something isn't right, but when Muslims are offended they throw rocks, take hostages, and blow themselves up at the grocery store. I imagine somewhere in the microfiche archives of Arabic newspapers are cartoons of fat Americans, or a rat-faced President, or filthy infidels infecting the Middle East like a parasitic plague spreading greed, immorality, and capitalism. Segue to this article I found that just made everything laughable:
this guy? Isn't it just amazing; he's cashing in on this whole nonsense.Whew.
I'm exhausted...Talk to you later my friend...~A~
First we have Hillary using the death of Martin Luther King to promote her own jabs during a time of rememberance.
Now, they use King's widow for the same purpose:
Excuse me, but wasn't this a day to remember Ms. King? Didn't President Bush keep the focus on her? Yes? Did the Democrats? No.
When will people realize that the plight African Americans has been used by the Democrats to promote whatever agenda they have at the time? They are not there to honor MLK or his wife, they are there to promote themselves while always keeping African American's in their place. That way the Democrats can always have that fall back position. They can always prop their ideas on top of African Americans, even when standing over an African American's grave.
This seems so similar to the extremist Muslims using the "plight" of the Palestinians to push their anti-Israel sentiments. The Muslim world does not care about the Palestinians, they just don't like Israel. Palestine happens to be close by and can be used to create emotion and cause. Don't the Palestinians realize they are being used by the rest of the Muslim world to further an insane cause?
To me I see an exact parallel to how the Democrats use African Americans. They don't really care what happens to them, their overall goal is Socialism and they'll use whoever they can to promote that ideal.
Rarely will you see such incredible use of sarcasm to make so many valid and honest points. I don't remember how to do the sarcasm thing, soI'll just use a burnt orange color for it.

Now we get word that "alledgedly" Oprah only plugged the book in the first place to get poor little Jennifer Anniston to come on her show and bare her soul about splitting up with Brad Pitt. Turns out Anniston owns the movie rights to the book. So, Oprah lied. That's a lie by omission. I know, cause I found out what that meant when I didn't tell my ex-girlfriend that I was still hanging out with my ex-ex-girlfriend.
Truthfully, I don't know what the big stink is about this guy lying in his book. I mean, the guy was a drug addict. I'm sure he lied all the time back then, and old habits are hard to break. Besides, who tells the truth in an autobiography? It's not like people are beating down Tucker Max's door asking for documentation of his exploits. And everybody knows that guy's full of shit.
I think it's time for Oprah's empire to fall. She totally thinks she's better than me.
