More news you don't want to miss

You report this like it's a surprising ting?

But, is she sorry enough to NOT use the damn cell phone while driving....again?

Am I the only one who sees something wrong with this?

My tribute to the Hollywood lifestyle. Here's to ya Britney, Paris and Lindsey:

"Moderate" mooslimbs, please take note

This is how you show displeasure with your extremists.

Reaction to Phred Phelps Phobic Protests at cemetaries:

It's about time.

"Moderate" Islamists please note the lack of flames, gunfire and free flowing blood.

. . . Also the lack of chreographed "DEATH TO,,,(ummm-whoever)!!" chants.

I do, however hope you DO take note of the show of distain for something most Americans hold for this kind of behavior.
You, too can show your displeasure with your extremists--IF you want to.

Lets review:

Drunken dumb-ass

Truth in advertizing

I used to drive OTR

And I noticed that it seemed like the more leftist/Liberal the state was, the worse the roads were.
Texas, Wyoming, Oklahoma-Good roads.
Louisiana, Cali, New Jersy, New York, Mich., Minn.- Roads in .....not so great shape.

Now I see this nude "pothole" calender from Canada with canoes in their potholes. (SFW)
That pretty much verifies my Liberal=bad infrastructure theory.

Liberalism explained

If you don't think I'm right- just think about all the pro-abortion arguments.
Incest, abuse, pedophilia (oops, sorry NAMBLA), and all the rest of the excuses they make to hide bad decisions.

I've always thought that Most Libs I've seen on TV and read on ALGores internet were,,,,well basically rebellious teens in adult bodies with college vocabularies. They throw out ideas and accusations with (it seems) no anticipation of the end result.
I have teens. I was a teen ager. I know how absolute and unrealistic some of their ideas are. It took me going into boot camp to realize that I didn't know the answers to everything just because I had an answer to it and that there were usually reasons for answers without a question.

Gun control? OMG, they'll start shooting whenever someone pisses them off!!!!
What scares me most is the arbitrary nature of self-defense. What line must be crossed to signal to you that there is imminent danger or threat? Is it a criminal pulling a gun on you? In which case, unless you're a gunslinger, you're not going to outdraw him. Is it someone pulling a knife? Threatening words? Bad language or rude gestures? Where is that one point where you decide, "Yes, my life or the life of my loved ones is in danger and I must now take it upon myself to take the life of another person." What if the guy is reaching into his jacket, and you are sure, absolutely certain that it is a weapon. You pull your gun and shoot--and see he's reaching for his wallet. Or worse, you miss and hit a child running in the street. Where is that line?
I understand completely that you have the best of intentions, the best training, the best gun money can buy, and the best reasons in the world to want to defend yourself. But I'm sorry, I don't have insight into your character from my vantage point and I can't assume you can be trusted with a gun any more than I can assume you're not going to attack me anyway without a gun.


How about this explanation?
Projection concerns externalizing the issues that we need to deal with ourselves. Usually we project onto others issues and problems that we need to address within ourselves, or are unable to manage properly. Projection is irresponsible behavior as we dump our problem onto somebody else. We justify these projections by blaming someone or something outside for the emotions we do not want to feel. We project our disappointments and problems onto other people, it is somehow their fault, we become a blamer. Ultimately it is the person who projects that loses, as they never really sort out their own problems.

You've seen parents raging at their children demanding they meet requirements the parent has failed to achieve themselves. This is projection. The parent trains the child to do all the negative behaviors the parent has repressed for a lifetime. If the parent has a problem with addiction they will rage at the child until the child becomes addicted too. They see their own behavior mirrored back in the child and then rage against their own projection trying to get the child to change what they are not yet willing change and face in themselves. We try to change everything outside us when we are not willing to go inside and do the work we need to do to change ourselves. You see this with so called progressives. They try to change everything in the world rather than do their own inner work.

Does anybody recognize this?

No, don't cheat and jump down to the body.

I'll give you some stats on it.

When issued its battle sites were set at about 546 yards.

It was reissued during WWII.

It is a .30 cal weapon, with a revised ammo designation that was changed when the ammunition was made a little hotter- back in 1906.

Is that better?

Overall length is 43.20 inches, unloaded weight was 8 lbs-11 oz. The barrel is 24 inches and has a 4-groove 2 groove, left-hand twist barrel. The magazine holds 5 rounds.

According to this site, it was made in 1942.
(link is fixed)

But, according to the barrel it was made in July of 1944.

OK, it's a 1903 A3 Springfield in what appears to be - really good condition.
After looking, I think the stock is a replacement, because it doesn't have any factory markings on it.

This is the one that I can used to drop shots into the black all day long at 200Yds+. I haven't got it to the range yet, because my shoulder is still not right, and I'd like to be able to use the fingers on my right hand for a while yet.

The 18 yr-old had a visit from the recruiter yesterday

The Army recruiter.
She and her friend were thinking od going in under the "Buddy program".

Both of them took a practice ADVAP test.
All of a sudden reality is starting to slap both of them in the face.
Neither of them would have gotten above 35 on the real test.

As a measurement I use is that I scored 85 on mine.
They needed a 50 to get their Vet. MOS. So then they decided to check out the M.P.'s- be cause one girl couldn't handle giving a dog a thermometer up the butt.

OK, they're pretty clueless teens- that's life.
I'll let them make their own mistakes- the Army has plenty of experience in re-assigning inappropriate people.

The recruiter was here for about two hours. One thing that caught my attention was the "New and Improved" General orders.

I seem top remember that there was 5 or 7 general orders of a sentry.
She mentioned the THREE general orders.

When did they downgrade the basic tenants of the military?
I was under the impression that we had the best and brightest enlisting?
I guess we all need to lower our standards to accomodate those that live in these times,,,THREE general orders...??????

I question the timing

Here we have an ex-general telling a Spanish paper that Rumsfield authorized the Abu-Graib 'torture'.
I'd think that if it were true, it would have, and should have been exposed back in 2004 when everything was boiling.
It should have been made public last month to do the most harm to BushCo.

But then again, maybe ex-General Janis Karpinski was as lackadasical in her personal calender as she was in enforcing military discipline in her unit assigned to guard the prisoners in Abu-Graib.

I wonder if he even knew the word before he sounded it out

See, 50cent (some drug thug)is "appalled" that James Bond can show a gun on a poster, but a gangbanging rapper who glorifies anti-social behavior can't.
Gee, I just can't see WHY anyone would have a problem with seeing an advocate for the total breakdown of civilized behavior with a gun. Showing inluencialble (is that a word?) youth and immature adults that it's ok to solve *ANY* problem with violence.

Oh, and he wants Hollywood to do their Liberal thing and adopt a "Zero tolerance" policy on showing ALL guns on movie advertizments.

I wonder who was in front?

Steve-o or Robert?

I also wonder what kind of cologne they had on.

Our stalwart and stiff lipped British allies In the GWoT

Are trying to find how to get to Amarillo

Thanks to Rusty for the new video link


You can stop YELLING on your OxyClean commercials.

I have My volume down for a reason- I *don't* need your yelling about your snake oil wonder product.

I can hear the Tv just fine where my sound is set.

Did you usta sell used cars? Just curious because I think I'd trust you as much as a used car salesman.

I don't know how much extra it costs to double my volume on your TV ads, but believe me-You're not making any friends at my house (or on the internet it looks like).

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving

I hope that you stuffed yourselves well.
I hope you have plenty of white bread and Miracle Whip For those turkey sammiches.

Now- just in case you haven't been to Wallyworld in the past two months, it's time to think about Christmas.
And what would Christmas be without animatronic window displays?

How about a Kola doing the deed with a Wombat in a department store window down in Oz? (SFW- sort of)

Actually it was just one of those unforseen engineering mishaps. You know, those guys who went to collage for 4+ years and didn't take into account the movement affect on a makeshift connector.

Happy Thanksgiving

Tavin tells you about what he has to be thankful for

Something else to be thankful for

The ability to HAVE the ability to take "Firm, resilient female flesh bravely resisting the recoil of heavy caliber weaponry..." for granted.

I'm sorry -really

But I just CAN'T get all worked-up about the impending fall of the Lebanese facade of a government.

I know, I know- at least it was a stabilizing influence over there.
I have a sneaking suspicion- given the history, that the ONLY way they'll get a stable government will be from Syria.

They gave Hiz b'Allah a veto over anything going on there. Syria has had their fingers in the pie for so long that there isn't any crust left.

As for the so-called Democratic movement over there last year?

Those people over there wouldn't recognize Democracy if they stepped in it up to their armpits.
They're actively opposed to the ONLY Democratic government in the region.

Tell me again- why should I care? Just keep sending Israel the tools to keep those terrorists on the fastlane to paradise.

I just gownloaded IE7

Can't say I'm very impressed.
In order to load it, I had to turn off all mu internet protection.

Now, the masters at Microsoft won't let me customize the top bars like I want.
I can't hide the tool bar, but I CAN hide the navigator bar. I'd rather move the toolbar into the navigation bar and get rid of half an inch of useless Micocrap on top of my screen.
Must be that pesky free will thing that only the Head Liberals feel only they need.

THEY know better than I do about how I want my computer to work, so I should b happy they allow me to buy their stuff.

(UPDATE 11-21-06 2:35AM)
I just uninstalled IE7 because I couldn't get it customized ,or how to work the way I wanted. I finally got those annoying tabs to hide, but never could find a way to get rid of those stooopid "favorites" stars.
OR to hid that bottom bar.

I just hope that Vistas isn't as f*cked up as Explorer 7.


First the serious scientific story.
They're going to sink and document the ecological benefits of a whale carcass.
Yep, science at it's best.

Confronted with a rotting whale carcass on the beach in 1970, officials in Florence, Ore., hauled in 20 cases of dynamite and lit the fuse.

The resulting rain of blubber chunks smashed a car a quarter-mile away, sent onlookers fleeing for cover and yielded one of the Internet's most side-splitting video clips.

Biologists at the University of Washington's Friday Harbor Laboratories have a better idea for disposing of a 54-foot fin whale that turned up dead in the Port of Everett earlier this month.

They plan to attach 3 tons of metal railroad wheels to the corpse and sink it off the coast of San Juan Island.

But because these are scientists, that's just the beginning of the story.

The real goal is to study the whale's decomposition at a level of detail that would make most people gag.

Using an underwater drone equipped with a video camera, the researchers will document the types of fish, crabs and other creatures that feed on the carcass, and the role it plays as a food bonanza in the marine ecosystem. Divers will also visit the site for an up-close view of the putrefaction.

Now for the good part:

Including this tongue twister "The blast blasted blubber beyond all believable bounds".

Oh, look!

This would make a nice companion to the .357 Blackhawk I want to get.

Just in case ayone was feeling generous for Christmas...

Craigslist has been sued

If you're not familiar with craigslist, it's basically an online classifieds site.
there is probably one near you no matter where you are.

If you have then bookmarked, you'll notice the international sign of the Liberal as their icon (a peace sign).
Anyway, some-even more Liberal Liberals were suing them for discrimination in their self policed ads in Chi-town.
See, craigslist doesn't charge for ads, or even -really censor them. That's left to the veiwing public. If something is deemed objectionable, then it's flagged and looked at more closely.

This unfounded suit was the result of such 'exclusionary' terms as:

. While craigslist takes fair housing issues very seriously, and we want to do everything we can to assist our users in promoting fair housing for everyone, the 100 ads cited were a little surprising. Some were roommate ads involving constitutionally protected speech and the right to free association, such as "prefer christian roommate", or were ads containing incidental and harmless remarks such as "near St Gertrude's church," and "Buddhist temple nearby." Others simply celebrated the diversity and tolerance of the local community ("vibrant southwest Hispanic neighborhood offering great classical Mexican culture, restaurants, and businesses"), or sought to appeal to some groups without excluding anyone ("Great apartment for graduate students, married couple, or small family"). And for a few it is difficult to determine what protected classification is at issue ("wants one nice quiet person").

Like it's been asked before. Once you start down that slippery slope, how do you stop? It's better to not get the sled moving at all, instead lets move our ideas with all the deliberation of inching the ship-of-civilization out if the drydock on her new mission.

As craigslist goes on to (unwittingly, I'm sure) affirm the very essence of the Liberal state:

Though possibly well-intentioned, this lawsuit ignores the essential nature of craigslist, demanding that we cease treating our users with trust and respect, and instead impose inappropriate, mistake-prone, and generally counter-productive centralized controls (such as manual review by our staff of the nearly 2 million free housing ads of unlimited length posted each month, a volume of ads greater than that received by all US newspapers combined), controls which would actually be less effective in catching discriminatory ads than what we have in place currently, and which would vastly reduce the number of legitimate non-discriminatory ads that the site could process.

Overreaching further, the suit demands that craigslist proactively volunteer personal information about posters who post a discriminatory preference (e.g. "church next door") to regulatory authorities for prosecution, without subpoena or warrant -- clearly a violation of privacy rights, this demand may actually run counter to federal law governing the handling of user information.

Ya know, they get it, but they can't admit that they "get-it".
Because that would somehow ,,,tarnish their humanistic insincts.

Yes,I 'm training her well

Karen and I went to San Antonio this morning looking to see if there were any trees worth buying to replace the Crape Myrtles that the Leafcutter ants killed.
We stopped into Sportsman's Warehouse to buy some felt wads for the Colt ( they don't carry them in .44).
As we were passing the gun counter, she told me we needed to get a Winchester for the house.

Because this is Texas and we *should* have one.

I love my wife!!!

Actually, I think she had something like this more in mind than a bright shiney new one

Hondo, Texas

The only city in Texas where a minor cross street takes precedence over a state highway.
I can garrantee that if you see a car at an intersection with a traffic light, the highway traffic will have a longer stop than the crossroad.

This is sooo wrong

On multiple levels-
I got this *11* thing in my mail today (or last week? It's one of those extra mailboxes).

I don't know ALL of what's wrong with it but my BS detector is going off right now.
I'll paste it and add my two cents as we go.

Subject: Fwd: Number 11

Try this, Coincidence? make up your own mind.

The Secret behind the number 11 -

Read to the bottom. Try it out. It is unreal.

If you are a sceptical person - still read on as it's actually very

1) New York City has 11 letters [But it's official name is New York, New York= 14 *OR* Da City= 6]
2) Afghanistan has 11 letters. [Ok, I'm sure lots of _____stans have 11 letters, too]
3) Ramsin Yuseb has 11 letters. (The terrorist who threatened to destroy
the Twin Towers in 1993)[BUT- it depends on how you spell it]
4) George W Bush has 11 letters. [And *W* only has one]

This could be a mere coincidence, but this gets interesting:
1) New York is the 11th state.
2) The first plane crashing against the Twin Towers was flight number 11.[Remember this flight number]
3) Flight 11 was carrying 92 passengers. 9 + 2 = 11 [does that include the hijackers? If the hijackers weren't counted, the number wouldn't BE 11, would it?]
4) Flight 77 which also hit Twin Towers, was carrying 65 passengers. 6+5 =
11 [ditto the above. And if that didn't work, we can always add the flight crew -as needed]
5) The tragedy was on September 11, or 9/11 as it is now known. 9 + 1+ 1 =11[and 9 x1 x1=9, so?]
6) The date is equal to the US emergency services telephone number 911.
9 + 1 + 1 = 11

Sheer coincidence..?! Read on.
1) The total number of victims inside all the hi-jacked planes was 254.

2 + 5 + 4 = 11. [So are we including the flight crew this time? What about the hijackers?]
2) September 11 is day number 254 of the calendar year.[OUR calender- islamists use a different one]

Again 2 + 5 + 4 = 11. [OR 2 x5 x4= 40]
3) The Madrid bombing took place on 3/11/2004. 3 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 4 = 11.[more number manipulation fun]
4) The tragedy of Madrid happened 911 days after the Twin Towers incident.

Now this is where things get totally eerie:

The most recognized symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the
Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Koran, the Islamic holy book:

"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The
wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah while some
of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the
Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."

That verse is number 9.11 of the Koran. [Of WHICH version?]

Unconvinced about all of this Still ..?!

Try this and see how you feel afterwards, it made my hair stand on end:
Open Microsoft Word and do the following:
1. Type in capitals Q33 NY. This is the flight number of the first plane to
hit one of the Twin Towers. [Remember the flight number I told you to remember? It was 11]
2. Highlight the Q33 NY.
3. Change the font size to 48.
4. Change the actual font to the WINGDINGS 1
What do you think now?!!

I think it's as big a stretch as someone wasting an entire day trying to figure out how to fold a $5 bill to somewhat resemble the twin towers.

Big rule for motorcylists , , , BE SEEN

Maybe I need to rename this the Drivers-Ed blog?

Here are two articles about the same accident:

Motorcyclist killed doing stunt with non-graphic pics.

Motorcyclist not at fault, friends say
With this insightful quote:
Castaneda said Brown was such an experienced driver that if he had attempted a wheelie, he would have made sure no one was in front of him.

Right- all the way up until the driver in the LEFT TURN LANE didn't see your dumb @ss with the headlight aimed at the sky.

Anybody that has ever ridden a motorcycle KNOWS that you're invisible to 4 wheelers at best-usually it seems that they're out to get you.

I'm missing something

It's something I've grown accustomed to hearing at the end of every election cycle for the last six years.

The allegations of
I mean, c'mon- where is the forests of dead trees, and gigabytes of electrons screaming about all the historic and unchanging voter fraud that has been the Liberal war cry since November of the year of our Lord 2000?

(UPDATE) 2:40PM- on the way to work-

Speaking of BusHitlerian plots. Do you think he manufactured the Democratic take-over just so he could pass his illegal amnesty/citizenship gift to his business buddies?
I wonder when THAT'LL pop up over at the D.U.

I'm sure you've heard of the Darwin Awards

Where people end up still polluting the gene pool in spite of the stupid cr@p they pull.

Here's another worthy set of awards from the mailbag:

The Stella Awards

The Stella Awards are named after 81-year-old Stella Liebeck who
spilled hot Coffee on herself while driving and successfully sued McDonald's (in
N.M) on the ground that the coffee they'd sold her was that hot. That
case inspired the Stella Awards for the most frivolous, ridiculous and
successful lawsuits, in the United States.
Here are this year's winners:

5th Place (tie):
A jury of her peers awarded Kathleen Robertson of Austin, Texas,
$80,000 after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running

inside a furniture store. The owners of the store were understandably
surprised at the verdict, being as how the misbehaving little toddler
was Ms.Robertson's son.

5th Place (tie):
19-year-old Carl Truman of Los Angeles won $74,000 and medical
expenses when his neighbor ran over his hand with a Honda Accord. Mr.
Truman apparently didn't notice there was someone at the wheel of the
when he was trying to steal his neighbor's hubcaps.

5th Place (tie):
Terrence Dickson of Bristol, Pennsylvania, was leaving a house he had
just finished robbing by way of the garage. He was not able to get the
garage door to go up since the automatic door opener was malfunctioning.
He couldn't re-enter the house because the door connecting the house
and garage locked when he pulled it shut. The family was on vacation,and

Mr. Dickson found himself locked in the garage for eight days. He
subsisted on a case of Pepsi he found, and a large bag of dry dog food.
He sued the homeowner's insurance claiming the situation caused him
undue mental anguish. The jury agreed to the tune of $500,000.

4th Place :
Jerry Williams of Little Rock, Arkansas, was awarded $14,500 and
medical expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next-door
neighbor's beagle. The beagle was on a chain in its owner's fenced yard.

The award was less than that sought because the jury felt the
dog might have been just a little provoked the time by Mr. Williams who
had climbed over the fence into the yard and was shooting it
repeatedly with a pellet gun.

3rd Place :
A Philadelphia restaurant was ordered to pay Amber Carson of Lancaster,

Pennsylvania, $113,500 after she slipped on a soft drink
and broke her coccyx (tail bone). The beverage was on the floor because
Ms. Carson had thrown it at her boyfriend 30 seconds earlier
during an argument.

2nd Place :

Kara Walton of Claymont, Delaware, successfully sued the owner of a
nightclub in a neighboring city when she fell from the bathroom window
to the floor and knocked out her two front teeth. This occurred while
Ms. Walton was trying to sneak through the window in the ladies room to
avoid paying the $3.50 cover charge. She was awarded $12,000 and dental


1st Place :

This year's runaway winner was Mrs. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma. Mrs. Grazinski purchased a brand new 32-foot Winnebago motor
home. On her first trip home, (from an OU football game), having
driven onto the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly

left the drivers seat to go into the back &make herself a
sandwich. Not surprisingly, the RV left the freeway, crashed and
overturned. Mrs.Grazinski sued Winnebago for not advising her in the
owner's manual that she couldn't actually do this. The jury awarded her
$1,750,000 plus a new motor home. The company actually changed their
manuals on the basis of this suit, just in case there were any other
complete morons around.

And these winners of the judicial lottery (and the jury of their peers)are most likely beneficiaries of our government school complex.
I wonder who they voted for (if they did)?

I'd like to expand on yesterdays driver video

At least those guys had a clue.

Now let me refresh your drivers-ed concepts.

The on ramp (also called the acceleration lane) is to help you get up to speed to merge smoothly with traffic going 70MPH. You don't meander up it at F*ING 30 miles per hour! YOU have the Yield when merging onto the Highway- the big semi truck #1-does not have to let you on and #2- probably can't move over because I have some moron still sitting at my rear wheels from two miles back.

A yield sign is NOT a stop sign.

A stop sign will NEVER turn green- so you may as well stop waiting for it to happen.

If you are on a cell phone and are 5' away from the white bar when the light changes to YELLOW- it's ok to go through. It is NOT cool to slam on your brakes with a (luckily unloaded) semi truck right behind you.

The zipper(dotted white line) is a sight guide, it is NOT where your left tire should be.

Sit up, you look like a drunk dork sighting down your hood centerline- when there are two of you doing that, it looks like you're going to do a guy kiss. Yep really cool.

OHHHH,,,,and speaking of cars and trucks- anyone notice which way the gas prices are going since the Dems got elected to the majoritys?

Driver training

4:45 of your tax dollars at work.

I was fully prepared to be awed by the new trucks

Here is #469:

If any Driver wants to take a good close look at the mirror placement in relation to the windows...

You'll notice how far back they are, to use these handy things, you have to turn your head almost 90 degrees, and the convex are so low as to be almost useless. Not to mention that I was always taught to watch my trailer as I was turning. You can't. The mirrors are so far back that you loose the last marker light at about a 45 degree turn. Good thing I have a day cab- it would REALLY suck to have a sleeper.

As much as my boss paid for these I'm surprised at how cheaply they're put together.
I blew a turbocharger boot on #468 at about 650 miles, and it has something rubbing on the firewall, and somethings rattling around inside the passenger side dash.

On the positive side, they are nice and quiet. The A/C works very well, and they are comfortable- even with the short seat bottom.

The four drive wheels that replace the tandems take some getting used too. For lack of a better word- they're 'slidey' when the load shifts- the back of the truck shifts, too. Not as much as it feels like, but enough to know you don't have 16 sidewalls giving you lateral stiffness.

I got a new work truck

I took some pictures last night.

It's a 2006 International Eagle 9900i

The one I took pictures of right now has 2936 miles on it.

I just got done downloading the pictures and found something I wasn't expecting.

It's kinda sad, in a way...

But I felt you needed to see it.

I decided to try some photoshopping

I don't think she'd mind

Do you?

It's called a "tape display"

after looking at it in it's current time...

What do you think the time is that you're looking at?

would you rather take a glance at your watch?

YESsssss,,,,,,, moving the boundaries of mankind.

What? Really?

No... You're kidding me.
You paid attention during 100% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?
Create a Quiz

You gotta be chitting me!
I was a 'C' student...with any effort I coulda been an "A" student- or close, but I blew it off.
I'm lazy, I admit that.
Ok, I'm not "really" lazy- I just want to get the most out of what I put in. I'm efficient.

If I hire you, I'd better not be coming back to untangle your lifeline more than once. If I have to again, I realize that you are
A- Not listening to anything I said, or
B-Trying to get attention by getting into trouble,. so your designated 'hero' can save you- once again.
C- I realize that I was spoiled by the military- I had all these kids who actually ABSORBED what I had to tell them..... then I got into civilian life and all the ones who couldn't ad 1+3+6to get ten if you gave them the calculator.
Seriously, I'm laid back drinking what Karen picked up at the liquor store.
I'm sitting here trying to get a muscle spasm ...drunk away (selaxin doesn't help) and as I was working- asked the wondrful wife to get me some E&J VSOP brandy- to try to know- relax the entitre shoulder muscles.

She must have been on a bad cell because I'm trying to down E7J VS (not VSOP)which isn't helping the melloeing-the-muscle-spasm-on-my shoulder part because I really hate drinking paint thinner.

I guess if I were younger and didn't know the difference, I'd think it was good booze- kinda like the indians and their whiskey.

BUT now I do know that the good stuff isn't supposed to take the enamel off your teeth,,,,

Stripping, it's all about the dignity

See it's all about being "forced" to make $100-$300 per hour for letting drunks leer and try to get to any base with you.
Alot of this article is SNSFW because of language that progressives think would be enlightening for your kids to hear in the safe-sex classes.

1. How does intimate sexual touching for payment not equal prostitution unless you're going by a very narrow, fundamentalist penis-in-vagina definition of sex?

2. Why can't you just be happy looking at us beautiful ladies without making us have to touch your old, skanky, often-smelly manselves to pay our rent?

Well SweetCheeks, YOUR president told us it wasn't sex unless it WAS 'sex".

I think you go for the same reason other men go, because we're a captive audience FORCED to smile and nod and defer to your nasty wants because you're paying us to submit to your idea of what what interactions with sexy women should be. Like you say, men talk "to" strippers, but they don't talk "with" them. Our responses to men's banal banter are stock answers pulled from the strippers' survival guide.

You make us get naked as animals, a vulnerable feeling when surrounded by fully-clothed drunk/drugged men, then make us paint our faces and dance like monkeys for your money not because you respect us and admire looking at and talking with sexy women but because the real sexy women Seattle drips with aren't obligated to pay you any attention, smile at your stupid jokes, or pretend you don't make us want to vomit while bumping our
...AHEM-this is a family publication here.

And the reason they're captive isn't because of the Conservative slave traders who stole their humanity, a little might have to do with:
Who's gonna pay me $100-$300 an hour to wash their laundry, work at Carl's Jr., cashier for a convenience store, sell coffee, babysit kids, or anything else that doesn't involve sticking my Xxxxx or Xxxxx-xxxx xxxxx xxxxx in men's faces? Men have a real racket going on. Those of us "lucky" enough to be *naughty language* hot can submit ourselves sexually to men for sacks of cash no ugly or fat women will be offered for working at Wal-Mart or anywhere else.

I think she would have a problem anywhere she worked, except that instead of being an abusive unattractive salesclerck at minimum wage, she's a manhating sripper, who's there for the money. I though Libs were all for the "dignity" of being human- or something like that?
Oh, wait Most slave-owners were Democrats, weren't they? And I'd bet there weren't a whole lot of Republicans in the Klan


All I can say is -Thank God this didn't happen in America.
I realyy hope it never does, either.

Mr Khan said that if it had been struck hard enough or exposed to heat it could have gone off.

"This sort of thing should not be lying around. It was live, primed and active," he said. "But rather me pick it up than a little kid.

"How can you feel safe when you are finding things like this on the street?

"To get hold of one of these is not easy. You have to go through a scrutinised search, you need a licence and you have to belong to a club."

This is from a British paper reporting on this dangerous object

Maybe some of them got it...

WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Congressman Mike Pence released the following statement today on the GOP's midterm election loss:

"Election day 2006 will be remembered as a turning point in American political history. Twenty-five years after the Reagan Administration came to Washington with a conservative agenda of limited government, the American people chose a different course.

"It is the duty of the losing party in a free election to humbly accept defeat and to acknowledge that the people are sovereign in the People's House.

"As we examine the results of this election, it is imperative that we listen to the American people and learn the right lessons.

"Some will argue that we lost our majority because of scandals at home and challenges abroad. I say, we did not just lose our majority, we lost our way.

"While the scandals of the 109th Congress harmed our cause, the greatest scandal in Washington, D.C. is runaway federal spending.

"After 1994, we were a majority committed to balanced federal budgets, entitlement reform and advancing the principles of limited government. In recent years, our majority voted to expand the federal government's role in education, entitlements and pursued spending policies that created record deficits and national debt.

"This was not in the Contract with America and Republican voters said, 'enough is enough.'

"Our opponents will say that the American people rejected our Republican vision. I say the American people didn't quit on the Contract with America, we did. And in so doing, we severed the bonds of trust between our party and millions of our most ardent supporters.

"As the 110th Congress convenes next year, Republicans must cordially accept defeat and dedicate ourselves to advancing our cause as the loyal opposition knowing that the only way to retake our natural, governing majority, is to renew our commitment to limited government, national defense, traditional values and reform."

BUT, how long do you think they'll remember?
My bolding...
OR- maybe it's just saying what the core wants to hear? Remember- this is the guy who is tired of having to deal with "Porkbusters" ands wants to go back to business-as-usual. Is the ONLY reason he's saying it because he wants to be the Minority Leader?

So, one of the first things the Dems are going to do is raise your gas prices in January.
They're going after "Big Oil" and their price gouging policies.

She(the Wicked witch of the west) says Democrats will also go after oil companies by enacting tough laws to stop gasoline price gouging, and some Democrats want to impose a windfall profits tax on Big Oil.

"We're going to move on the agenda that we laid out," Rep. Rahm Emanuel (news, bio, voting record), who heads the House Democrats' campaign committee, said on Wednesday.

He said Democrats will "redirect" the billions in breaks for oil companies to programs that will move the United States "toward energy independence."

Ok, I've got two girls looking at college- when are you going to help the 'little people' of with the skyrocketing cost of tuition? You know, what you pay for substandard education wrapped up in leftist kant spewed out by professors with six figure salaries?

Well, I guess we can have fun for two years

The Dems anti-terroris strategy from now on.

See what appears to be an easy victory, get a surprise, and then run away.

Repeat as needed to reinforce the paper tiger image of America.

Well, it looks like they got the short busses running

If anyone doesn't listen to Glenn Beck, you're missing out on the Dems core voter. Every Friday during football season, he has a portion called "Moron Trivia" which:

During the season, mostly on Fridays, calls are made to convenience stores in the cities where each team is based to speak to a "Shelf Replenishment Engineer". Each city it pitted against the other. Four questions are asked per quarter. The question range from politics to "What color is the sky?" Points are made each quarter and the city with the most points indicates the show's pick for the game in question.

The rules, as far as we can determine are as follows:

* The person who answers the phone has to answer the questions.
* There are four questions, if they don't know the answer, just guess. "It's no big deal."
* They cannot ask for help, they lose that question.
* If they agree to answer questions and then hang up the phone, they forfeit the quarter.
* If a hint is given to one city, the same hint should be given to the other.
* If listeners determine a flag on the field they can call in.
* If there is a tie, we go into sudden death in which a listener calls up, he/she chooses "Foreign or Domestic" and then they call a store. If the person who answers matches the description of the listener's choice, the point is awarded to the appropriate team.

Here is a link to the latest round of Democratic voters, and this is pretty much verbatem.

AND- for the record,I'd have blown the World Series question too; because I haven't cared about those baseball playing Union hacks since they canceled TWO World Series because of greed. Even two world wars didn't stop it- but greedy union @ssholes did.

Way to go Republicans- what do you expect when you p*ss on your own supporters with the *not* amnesty plan, and all the other Liberal-light chit you shoved down our throats these past 6 years?
Bush can take a bow, too for encouraging the way you acted.

Daym, that sucks!

So, what'll it be?
We start getting Gov't paid-for grief counseling and spend the next two years undermining the party in power evry time we take a breath -OR- go get a good bottle of your favorite infidel juice, get drunk and then try to get together with the winners and work for the good of America.

Tough choices, aren't they?
My choice will probably be a good bottle of brandy this week-end, if I'm not working.

Ya know, maybe it's what the Republicans needed- a reminder of what the People want.
They want Conservative values, not Liberal light.

The Material Girl

Wants you to buy a Mercedes.

That is all.


I expected this

I would have mentioned it in my prediction post if I would have thought about it.

Seems as if they're having problems with electronic voting machines because they weren't tried out first.

Ya know, it seems like it's mosly the blue states that have the problems.

Programming errors and inexperience dealing with electronic voting machines frustrated poll workers in hundreds of precincts early Tuesday, delaying voters in Indiana, Ohio and Florida and leaving some with little choice but to use paper ballots instead.

In Cleveland, voters rolled their eyes as election workers fumbled with new touchscreen machines that they couldn't get to start properly until about 10 minutes after polls opened.

"We got five machines — one of them's got to work," said Willette Scullank, a trouble shooter from the Cuyahoga County, Ohio, elections board

A precinct in Orange Park, Fla., turned to paper ballots because of machine problems. Voting was delayed for 30 minutes or more at some Broward County precincts, where electronic ballots were mixed up and, in one case, a poll worker unintentionally wiped the electronic ballot activators.

In Illinois, some voters found the new equipment cumbersome.

"People seem to be very confused about how to use the new system," said Bryan Blank, a 33-year-old librarian from Oak Park, Ill. "There was some early morning disarray."

In one of the worst fiascoes, Maryland election officials forgot to send the cards primary voters needed to activate electronic machines at their polling places, and some voters had to cast provisional ballots on scraps of paper.

Baltimore County election director Jacqueline McDaniel said the poll workers had a few problems on Tuesday — one left part of the equipment in his car; another was looking in the wrong place for the electronic poll books.

Several Florida counties stocked up ahead of the election with extra voting machines, paper ballots and poll workers on standby. Apart from the state's infamous chads in 2000, Florida voters have struggled with poorly trained poll workers and precincts opening late or closing early.


Aren't there SUPPOSED to be adults in charge?

I know that when I install brand spanking new and unfamiliar equipment- I make sure it works before I show it off to anyone. That includes walking my people through the entire procedure from clicking the button (or turning the valve) all the way to the final click (or turn).
Then we do it again.
Then they explain to me what they're doing and why.

Then we go over it one more time.
THEN we get it going.

But what should I know? I didn't graduate from college. I guess I'm just not "nuanced" enough to believe in magical cures.

How many people here read "Day by Day"?

I'm just curious to find out if any of you know where I could find a copy of the Xerox's Sam made the other day.....

Not that I'm a comic perve,,,,or anything- just wondering what a comic version looks like.

(UPDATE) Nov. 07 -2:35AM

Now I just have to wonder how a guy with a million hits a day found out I said something about his cutie?

I can tell the future

All I have to do is look at the past.

The girls can't understand *HOW* I can tell them exactly what they'll do/ask in certain situations.

It's the same with Sadaam. He won't hang. I said this as soon as I heard the verdict, and now AlReuters is reporting that the Euro Weiniees are betting their panties in a bundle about the death penalty.

AND, Condi will lean on the Iraqi government to ease-up on the punishment. Just to, ya know, show how 'nice' we are. How we don't *really* want to hurt anyones 'feelings'- especially the Communists and Socialists who run the Liberal organizations that are actively working against real peace in the Mid-East.

So, is the John F'ing Kerry thing over?

Why? Did the Legacy Media decide that he'd had enough?
I hope it's not over. Remember that Trent Lott (R) couldn't grovel enough to stay in the Senate (much less as a leader) because of something even MORE innocuose than Senator (and DEM prez candidate) Kerry.

At least keep him in the news so that 13-year olds can make fun of him, too.

Equal time

I bashed one company, now it's time to praise one.
Joseph is telling about his experience with Red Wing boots.
It's really good to hear that there are some companies like that still around.

I Iost $50 yesterday

No, I didn't loose a 50 dollar bill.
I was supposed to deliver a load of sugar (corn syrup) to Oak Farms Dairy at 10AM.
I left the new Hondo yard at 5AM to deliver a load to another client(3 hour round trip) and headed out to Oak Farms.
I knew I'd have the usual 2 hour wait as they got their chit together- emptying the sugar tank and moving a reefer van from bay 3.
Well yesterday they blew a 6 hour hole in my day by giving me a 4 hour wait. Then came the unloading time.
I finally got back to the Hondo yard about 4PM, swapped trucks and started on my last load (I should have been heading home), but when I got on the highway, the top 4 gears decided to go- so back to the yard I go at 20MPH. I swapped truks and trailer--again and headed out to be sent back because I wouldn't have enough time to legally do the delivery. I'd be over my 14 day.

I told the foreman that I had to redo my logbook anyway, so would be able to make it in the legal time,,,,,,,,,,not that *I* would ever think of falsifying my logs, ya know.

So back to the yard I go to put everything back where it belonged.

Do me a strange favor, instead of BUYING Oak Farms products-- DON'T buy Oak Farms products, it'll keep us from going over there so often.

As ye sow, so shall ye reap

No this isn't so much about religion. Rather the lack of standards set by religion.

This post is basically about sportsmanship and well, self control.

A Wallkill girls' varsity soccer player was arrested last night and charged with punching a Cornwall player in the face, knocking out three teeth and fracturing her jaw.

Cornwall police charged Jasmine Crespi, 16, with second degree assault — a Class D felony — for her actions after Tuesday's Section 9 Class A quarterfinal in Cornwall.

According to police, Crespi punched Cornwall junior defender Ashley Thorpe once in the face during postgame handshakes.

Cornwall police Sgt. Philip Sinagra said last night the incident was unprovoked.

After absorbing Crespi's blow, a bloody Thorpe collapsed to the ground, and was assisted by her stunned teammates. Thorpe's mother rushed her to an orthopedic surgeon, where she underwent nearly two hours of surgery Tuesday night. Ashley Thorpe also suffered a fractured palate.

Her jaw was wired shut and her face is badly swollen. Not surprisingly, Thorpe, who scored her first goal of the season in the 2-0 win over Wallkill, won't play in Cornwall's semifinal against top-seeded Red Hook today.

And then, we have the immediate consequences for the thugette:

Officials from Cornwall called police after the attack, but Crespi had already left on the team bus when authorities arrived. Cornwall police asked Crespi's parents to bring her in for processing Tuesday night. They refused. Sinagra said a warrant for her arrest would have been issued if her parents didn't produce her last night. Crespi was also accompanied in court last night by her lawyer, Brandon Ozman.

This happened in NY state, BTW.
So lets look at this shall we?
The bitch offending female player was probably a result of either a "win-at-any-cost" house or a homestead where "Princess" got away with whatever she wanted.
I'd also bet that the bitch didn't hear alot of "NO's" when she was growing up.

I aslo not that the team bus wasn't held up to wait for the police to get there- why?
I'd bet it was full of rich, snobby kids with influential parents judging by the way the bitch's the gir (and her parental units) in question acted.

There are also three other examples of assaults or potential violence cited- I know that three of the four states are very blue states with out those unelightened and backwards parents teaching the difference between right and wrong.

...But we don't want to burden anyone with the fact that in spite of Liberals moral relativism- there is Right and there is WRONG.

Here is a quick Clif's Notes version for for you people who don't say "NO!" alot in the house....

To help out with those with a decision to make- the Right way to go is usually the hardest one.

The perfect example of what happens when a bunch of Liberals take over.

Remember how blogger was kinda screwed-up, but ended-up working in the end?
Then GOOGLE took over and decided to make it "Better". Now, instead of just clicking the picture icon, you have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get ONE picture up.
Before GOOGLE, you could post as many pics as you wanted, now GOOGLE decided that for your own good, you're limited to how many they'll let you put up. ~ IF you can put any up without "system errors" coming up EVERY time you try.

See, I was going to steal THIS picture from Bullwinkle, but GOOGLE has run into more "technical problems"- again.

I guess this being the accelerated microchip age, it just speeds up the invetable results of Liberal tinkering. It used to be that it took years, or decades for the results of Socialist "enhancements"
to show up in cities, states and nations. Now on the internet it's measured in --months.
