The results are in

for the winner of the 2004 Bulwer-Lytton parody contest.
From this:
"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents--except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness."
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Paul Clifford

To these:
She resolved to end the love affair with Ramon tonight . . . summarily, like Martha Stewart ripping the sand vein out of a shrimp's tail . . . though the term "love affair" now struck her as a ridiculous euphemism . . . not unlike "sand vein," which is after all an intestine, not a vein . . . and that tarry substance inside certainly isn't sand . . . and that brought her back to Ramon. Bulwer-Lytton Winner Dave Zobel Manhattan Beach, CA

She sipped her latte gracefully, unaware of the milk foam droplets building on her mustache, which was not the peachy-fine baby fuzz that Nordic girls might have, but a really dense, dark, hirsute lip-lining row of fur common to southern Mediterranean ladies nearing menopause, and winked at the obviously charmed Spaniard at the next table. Jeanne Villa Novato, CA

As he entered the room within which so many a wild night of their sweltering love affair had been spent, the White Rabbit regarded her with benevolent eyes, her posture such that he suspected something was wrong, but before he could speak Alice unburied her face from her trembling hands and between her intense sobs he made out the words, "I'm late . . . I'm late."

It was a dark and stormy night--actually not all that dark, but more dusky or maybe cloudy, and to say "stormy" may be overstating things a bit, although the sidewalks were still wettish and smelled of ozone, and, truth be told, characterizing the time as night is a stretch as it was more in the late, late afternoon because I think Oprah was still on.

Let there be bussing

Expanded public transportation, that is. According to this A.P.T.A. article, 98% of respondents agree.

"With traffic congestion, pollution, and oil shortages all getting worse, now is the time to shift to affordable, efficient public transportation," APTA director Howard Collier said. "Fortunately, as this report shows, Americans have finally recognized the need for everyone else to do exactly that."
Of the studys' 5,200 participants, 44 percent cited faster commutes as the primary reason to expand public transportation, followed closely by shorter lines at the gas station. Environmental and energy concerns ranked a distant third and fourth, respectively.
Anaheim, CA, resident Lance Holland, who drives 80 miles a day to his job in downtown Los Angeles, was among the proponents of public transit.
"Expanding mass transit isn't just a good idea, it's a necessity," Holland said. "My drive to work is unbelievable. I spend more than two hours stuck in 12 lanes of traffic. It's about time somebody did something to get some of these other cars off the road."

Don't forget growing government bureaucracy's, too

Public support for mass transit will naturally lead to its expansion and improvement, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said.
"With everyone behind it, we'll be able to expand bus routes, create park-and-ride programs, and build entire new Metrolink commuter-rail lines," LACMTA president Howard Sager said. "It's almost a shame I don't know anyone who will be using these new services."
Sager said he expects wide-scale expansion of safe, efficient, and economical mass-transit systems to reduce traffic congestion in all major metropolitan areas in the coming decades.

The American Public Transportation Association is kicking off a "Get on the bus" drive.

Collier said he hopes the study serves as a wake-up call to Americans. In conjunction with its release, the APTA is kicking off a campaign to promote mass transit with the slogan, "Take The Bus... I'll Be Glad You Did."
The campaign is intended to de-emphasize the inconvenience and social stigma associated with using public transportation, focusing instead on the positives. Among these positives: the health benefits of getting fresh air while waiting at the bus stop, the chance to meet interesting people from a diverse array of low-paying service-sector jobs, and the opportunity to learn new languages by reading subway ads written in Spanish.
"People need to realize that public transportation isn't just for some poor sucker to take to work," Collier said. "He should also be taking it to the shopping mall, the supermarket, and the laundromat."

Hang up and DRIVE

I'm really getting tired of that hour long commute twice a day. People do me, and the rest of the drivers on the road a favor- HANG UP and DRIVE !

There were almost two wrecks in front of me because the drivers were too busy jacking their jaws at somebody miles away. I almost got T-boned a day ago because a blond teen-ager couldn't be bothered to stop at a STOPSIGN in her BIMMER because she was f*cking with her phone.

There are studies out (you go find the stats) that a person on a cell phone is as bad a driver as someone with .08 B.A.C.- I think they drive like they're even drunker than that. And ummmm LEGISLATORS... handsfree phones aren't the answer.

Truckers have been using C.B. radio since it's been available. The BIG difference is that they're talking to other DRIVERS. Not conveying some abstract idea to someone thousands of miles away, or giving instructions about how to unjamb the coppier.

Finally, , ,scientific proof

That conservatives and Liberals think diferently.

Christopher Orlet says in his blog that Liberals are more emotionally driven.

According to researchers at UCLA, differences were noted mainly in regard to the expression of empathy: "One Democrat's brain lit up at an image of John Kerry 'with a profound sense of connection, like a beautiful sunset,'" according to researcher Joshua Freedman. Brain activity in a Republican shown an image of Bush was "more interpersonal, such as if you smiled at someone and they smiled back." In other words Republicans may be better at building real and realistic relationships, while Democrats are more likely to see the connection between a Democratic victory and continued and unimpeded flow of government handouts.

More tax on the "poor"

According to WOAI 1200am in San Antonio, a DEMOCRAT state senator up in Austin is advocating raising the cigarette tax by $1 a pack.

Yep as most people know, the majority of smokers are in the lower education and income brackets.

I guess as long as it's for the "good" of the people- and advanced by a Dem, it's ok to target the poor for a tax increase. But where are the advocates for the poor? The ones who always jump on the bandwagon when a Republican wants to change ANYTHING about the tax structure when it affects the "poor".

Why do illegals need drivers licenses?

I'm sitting here looking at properties in Marion, and have O'reilly on in the background. He's got an anti illegal guy on and a Lib. Both are arguing about illegals w/ drivers licenses, and if it's needed or not. It sounds like Hannity and Colms.

Anyway, the question is WHY let illegals have drivers licenses, or any other quasi-legal ID? I know, the Libs and their fellow travelers say "it's a "safety issue".
HOW? They were breaking the law when they came here, have been driving without a DL or insurance since they got the vehicle. Does ANYBODY actually think that an illegal will go through all the BS involved in getting a "real" DL? What about the outrageous insurance premium?
I guess the answer to that is get the GOV'T to insure them (cringing) to, ya-know be sure they're "legal". That goes with the FREE schooling -bilingual of course wouldn't want the kids to actually KNOW English in America, FREE medical care-thanks taxpayers,
free/reduced food/WIC, etc- thanks taxpayers again.
These are the people coming from a (more or less) anti-American third world country dragging us the US down to their level with their third world living habits. We don't/won't do a damn thing because it's politically incorrect to expect them to accommodate themselves to us, the US.
You have all these apologists out there bending us to their will. WHY? Are they too LAZY to learn to live like an American? Are they to pendejo to learn to live like an American? Is their third world civilization BETTER than ours?
I want to know WHY we have to accommodate them. No other culture came to America and EXPECTED us to change to their will.


I wrote about the crybabies of Rummys Q & A with the troops yesterday. Chattanooga Times Free Press reporter Edward Lee Pitts is embedded with the 278th Regimental Combat Team got the two Reserves to ask his questions.

Subject: RE: Way to go

I just had one of my best days as a journalist today. As luck would have it, our journey North was delayed just long enough see I could attend a visit today here by Defense Secretary Rumsfeld. I was told yesterday that only soldiers could ask questions so I brought two of them along with me as my escorts. Before hand we worked on questions to ask Rumsfeld about the appalling lack of armor their vehicles going into combat have. While waiting for the VIP, I went and found the Sgt. in charge of the microphone for the question and answer session and made sure he knew to get my guys out of the crowd, , ,

But are they "real" vets?

Remember all those "nam vets" who were having all that trouble. The ones wanting gov't help because of their experiences? The ones who, after just a little research turned out to be fake vets?

According to "advocates" the Iraqi vets are starting to turn up in homeless shelters.

"I drove off in my truck. I packed my stuff. I lived out of my truck for a while," Seabees Petty Officer Luis Arellano, 34, said in a telephone interview from a homeless shelter near March Air Force Base in California run by U.S.VETS, the largest organization in the country dedicated to helping homeless veterans, , ,
, , ,A gunner's mate for 16 years, Arellano said he adjusted after serving in the first Gulf War. But after returning from Iraq, depression drove him to leave his job at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. He got divorced."
There are no Gunners Mate rates in the SeaBees, GMs are temporaraly assigned to Battalions.

They're there -I'm not, but, , ,

I know it's from MyWay News, but doesn't this strike you as a bunch of crybabies?

Spc. Thomas Wilson had asked the defense secretary, "Why do we soldiers have to dig through local landfills for pieces of scrap metal and compromised ballistic glass to up-armor our vehicles?" Shouts of approval and applause arose from the estimated 2,300 soldiers who had assembled to see Rumsfeld.
Rumsfeld hesitated and asked Wilson to repeat his question.
"We do not have proper armored vehicles to carry with us north," Wilson, 31, of Nashville, Tenn., concluded after asking again.

U.S. soldiers and Marines in Iraq are killed or maimed by roadside bombs almost daily. Adding armor protection to Humvees and other vehicles that normally are not used in direct combat has been a priority for the Army, but manufacturers have not been able to keep up with the demand.

Wilson's ex-wife, Regina, said she was not surprised he challenged Rumsfeld. Ex? Because he shoots his mouth off?
"It wouldn't matter if it was Bush himself standing there," she said. "He would have dissed him the same."
Wilson joined the National Guard in June 2003; previously, he had served about four years in the Air Force, beginning in 1994. Ok, so the guy KNEW what he was getting into.

Wilson and others, however, had criticisms of their own - not of the war but of how it was being fought.
During the question-and-answer session, another soldier complained that active-duty Army units seem to get priority over National Guard and Reserve units for the best equipment used in Iraq. Crying about what other troops have is as old as armies are.
"There's no way I can prove it, but I am told the Army is breaking its neck to see that there is not" discrimination of that kind, Rumsfeld said.

Yet another soldier asked how much longer the Army would continue using its "stop loss" power to prevent soldiers from leaving the service who are otherwise eligible to retire or return to civilian life at the end of their enlistment. I didn't read the whole contract

Rumsfeld said this condition was simply a fact of life for soldiers in times of war. Critics, including some in Congress, say it's proof the Army has been stretched too thin by war.
"It's basically a sound principle, it's nothing new, it's been well understood" by soldiers, he said. "My guess is it will continue to be used as little as possible, but that it will continue to be used."

Sen. Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., told Rumsfeld in a letter Wednesday that his response to the question about armored vehicles was "utterly unacceptable" and that it was the duty of the government to provide safety equipment.
"Mr. Secretary, our troops go to war with the Army that our nation's leaders provide," he wrote.
I'd REALLY like to see Sen DODDs voting record on military spending.

At the Pentagon, spokesman Larry Di Rita said production of armored Humvees had increased from 15 to 450 a month since fall 2003, when commanders in Iraq started asking for them because of insurgents' heavy use of roadside explosives.

Doggie Islands , , , brought to you by your liberal pals

That's right, Doggie Retirement Islands. I was looking for things about Marion, Tx. when I came across Dog Island.

Yes, send your favorite dog to Doggie Island to live free, like he wants to. He secretly wants to be a WOLF. He doesn't want to be living in your air conditioned house on a sofa. He wants to have to hunt down rabbits, and fight other dogs for the privilege. He looks like he's contented lying on your bed getting free goodies, but secretly he resents you.

"Over 2,500 dogs are already enjoying a better life at Dog Island. Separated from the anxieties of urban life, dogs on Dog Island are healthy dogs who live a natural, healthy and happy life, free from the stress and hardship associated with daily live among humans.
They live with almost limitless space, and tens of thousands of rabbits, rodents, fish and other natural prey. Surrounded by thousands of other dogs, this is the only place for them to be truly social and create healthy families."

Some of the the FAQs:
"My dog is very high strung and often gets into fights with other dogs. I can control this now, but what happens when fights break out on the island?
Fights break out occasionally, but this is not a real issue, because eventually, the dogs learn to get along. Every now and then some dogs gang up and kill and then eat another dog, but this is just natural, and it's okay for it to happen now and then, but normally this is not the case."

"My dog seems happiest lazy and warm, curled up by a fire. Will he really be happier at Dog Island?
Yes. Studies have shown that dogs with this lazy tendency also lack a luster for life which is revived by connecting to the great outdoors. Dog Island stands by it's beliefs in giving dogs a real chance to connect with nature and find their true life mate."

They even have a picture of a dog enjoying the sunset --Awwwww.

Do they have Doggie Drs, along with doggie husbands and wives? To take care of little things like Ticks and Fleas, mange, Heartworms, Intestinal worms, grooming shaggy dogs? Just to to keep humans at bay, where they belong, so doggies can enjoy nature in all its glory?

It's a liberal self parody

You just can’t make up what the has to say about those immature, selfish, haughty, whinny liberals progresives reality biased Kerry supporters. This time they had so many needing ‘help’ that they were treated en mass.

“The first of several free (free? NOTHING is FREE, who’s tax dollars are paying for it?) noontime therapy sessions at the American Health

counselors have dubbed Post Election Selection Trauma (PEST).
“If I had a cardboard cutout of President Bush, and these people wanted to

scare our patients to death,” said Gordon, facilitator for the meetings.
“More than anything else, people with PEST tremble physically.”

According to AHA officials, symptoms of PEST are similar to post-traumatic

Which country would you think that an election didn't matter?

Wrong, it's Liberal Amerikkka. they had a vote in Arizona where the voters, tried of paying out the ass for illegals voted to tie gov't services to citizenry. The liberals are going to court to stop this "discrimination." In case you didn't know, the majority of Arizona voters are citizens of Hispanic extraction.

William Perry Pendley writes in Mountain State legal
, , , " Not so in Arizona. There “liberals” are in court claiming that an initiative adopted overwhelmingly by Arizona’s voters will cause “intimidation” because it will, in part, require voters to prove that they are citizens of the United States and entitled to vote in its elections. It is a legal battle that, at some time in the future, could be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court and that, even today, is being argued by citizens of other states where similar legislation is being considered.

More than 190,000 Arizona residents signed petitions to place the Arizona Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act initiative, Proposition 200, on the ballot. On Election Day, despite the opposition of Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano and senior U.S. Senator John McCain, to name two prominent politicians, the initiative passed by a vote of 56 to 44 percent. Given that the annual cost of providing public benefits to Arizona’s illegal aliens exceeds $1 billion, or about $700 per household, voters felt something had to be done about illegal immigration.

Whether “something” will be done is yet to be determined. Days after the election, the American Civil Liberties Union, Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, National Council of La Raza, Service Employees International Union, Chicanos Por La Causa, and Valle del Sol all announced their intention to sue to prevent certification and implementation of Proposition 200. (Some of these groups went to court earlier to strike the initiative from the ballot; those efforts failed.) A week later, Arizona’s Attorney General ruled that Proposition 200’s requirement of proof of U.S. citizenship for receiving public benefits—such as welfare, public housing assistance, disability, retirement payments, and taxpayer-subsidized postsecondary education—is narrower than proponents and voters intended, , ,"

Today is AIDs Awareness Day

Just to let you know, so you can feel bad about all the people who got it by using unsafe sex, and intravenous drugs.
The AIDs Activists want YOU to know that there is STILL no cure. The fact that back in the 80's, when the CDC was trying to get a handle on it, they (AIDs activists) protested because the same procedures that stopped Polio, Small Pox, and the rest were "too Invasive of privacy".

These are the ones who "do" anyone willing, any where, any way. Who condemn smokers because of their addiction to tobacco (because they deserve it- filthy habit). Who condemn Bush for "not doing enough" in the fight against AIDs.

I know there are people who acquired this disease through no fault of there own. They have the AIDs activists of the 80's to thank for putting their selfish agenda before the health and wellbeing of their fellow human beings.

Free Elections in the Arab World Occur Only in Occupied Iraq and Palestine
In an article titled 'Democratic Occupation?' columnist Salama Ni'mat, the Washington, D.C. bureau chief for the London Arabic-language daily Al-Hayat, wrote:

"The Arab concern for … the legitimacy of Iraq's upcoming elections, and for the representation of [Iraq's] entire political, ethnic, and religious spectrum is outrageous. Anyone who watches what is going on could, if he did not know the truth, almost believe that the Arab countries – which throughout their history have never known what elections are – have become the [countries] most keen that Iraq's upcoming elections will reflect the will of the Iraqi people, with all its elements – and will particularly [reflect the will of] the Sunni minority that in Saddam Hussein's day was, for well-known reasons no one even questioned, [considered] a 'majority.'
, , , ,

'What Prevents Arab Regimes from Holding Free Elections is Fear of the Will of the Peoples'
"It is well and good for the Arabs to demand the right of political representation for the Sunni Arabs out of concern for them in the face of the tyranny of the other Iraqi groups and out of concern for national unity and the ideal relative representation. But we do not understand why this concern does not apply to the many Arab countries that do not permit their minorities to announce their existence, let alone their right to [political] representation.

'Ask the Arab League Why the Media in Occupied Iraq and Palestine Enjoy Freedom Under the Occupation, While the Media in the Other Arab Countries Do Not'
"Although the Taliban's regime of darkness has become history, and Saddam Hussein sits in his cell awaiting trial on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, the Arab regimes still act as if nothing has happened. Further, [they act] as if history is not happening as long as they do not acknowledge its existence and do not announce it in the papers and on the television channels, [all of] which they control. Can anybody ask the Arab League why the media in occupied Iraq and Palestine enjoy freedom under the occupation, while the media in the other Arab countries do not?
