WOW! What a ride

We had some rain last night.
And some wind.

I don't remember hearing anyhting about thunderstorms befor I went to work, but it was probably one of those Texas storms that come out of nowhere.

I was heading back from San ANtonio on my second trip and saw how BLACK the sky was over Castroville, and then started the lightning. It was all over the place, it looked like I was driving in a strobe light theater. At least it wasn't raining. Until I got to the other side of Castroville, then it let loose.

I had pull over because I couln't see anything. at. all.
We were sitting (three semis) still and rain and hail was hitting the windshield like we were going 60 MPH. The Mexicans people evacuation San Antonio -for some reason- couldn't be bothered to stop, they just slowed down.

Hondo creek- where we go shooting- was almost bank deep the last I saw before it got dark.
Just passed that, there was a dry van pushed sidways off the road, and all the road construction barrels and signage was scattered all over HWY 90.

I had to keep the differential lock in all night, just to keep the truck straight- because of the wide drive tires. They're called floaters- and they do. I know that the footprint is the same as two regular duals, but maybe it's over a foot wide, and the water can't escape that it wants to hydroplane faster. Even with 48,000pounds of sugar in the tank.

Oh, well. It's over, nothing I know was broken. I haven't been to the paddoc yet to see the remains of the garden, though. Well, if anything survived I'll be glad- Darwanism and all. The best plants survive.

Abu Graib !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Did I get your attention, or did your eyes automatically glaze over?

I'll mention it in passing, along with the ignorant, inbred, boyish c*nt holding the leash in the pictures. That was bad. It wasn't torture.
It may have been a violation of the Geneva convection- IF they were members of a STANDING(legal) military organization.

GITMO!
Are you tired of hearing about the supposed "rights" the islamo-terrorists have under the Geneva Convention?

The Left can't stop crying about the "rights" of irregulars involved on terrorism.
There is a vast difference between Resistance fighters who target only military targets, and terrorists who target (mostly) innocent civilians.
The Left conveniently forgets this, while crying about "rights".

The Left says we have to go overboard in extending "rights" and privileges to our captives- because if we don't then Micheal Moors "Minute Men" will have an excuse to treat our troops badly.

Guess what Libs, it doesn't work that way. The terrorists look at the Geneva convention as another one sided weapon to use against us.
Beheadings.
Torture.
Mutilations.
Forced confessions.
Standard fare for the Mullahcrastocracy.

The Geneva convention prohibits Military prisoners of a LEGAL military force from being paraded around for propaganda purposes.
You aren't raising your voices about the kidnapped Brits?
Why?

For the same reason you held your tongue about the torture of our POWs held in Viet Nam? Who, I might add, were ALSO signers of the Geneva convention.

No wonder your credibility is in the sewer for anyone with an IQ of more than a Gerbil.


UPDATE
I just remembered, those "tortured and abused" prisoners in Abu Graib petitioned to be tranferd to OUR (American) prisons when Abu Graib was turned over the the Iraqis.
Not that you heard about that from the MSM- did you?

Does this remind you of anyone?

I don't have anyone specific in mind, I just found this while looking for my "Pretty little red rivi-air head".

You-tube doesn't have it.

BUT,,,, I do know some people that THIS song would fit:

Some like it wet

This is like the third week in a row that it's either been raining, or is wet from the rain.
Everything here is frigging green, and growing.
You can't tell we just mowed the lawn last weekend.


The front yard





It's too wet and humid to do any kind of fine (furniture grade) woodworking because of the 100% humidity here.
I'd guess that we had somewhere around a foot of rain in the last seceral weeks- counting the 7" we had to start it off.

Karen loves it because it reminds her of Old Blighty.
I don't because I can't really do anything outside.

Where we live is supposed to be semi arid (the begginings of the southwest desert- if you want). I walk outside and it feels like I'm in the middle of Puert Rico's El Yunque rainforest. I would say Guam, but it's not that hot and the rain isn't comming down in sheets.

El Capitain!

I have found your unknown missing son!

He was arrested for piratical acts, and believes in the Flying Spagetti Monster. (Ok, not 'arrested", but it sounded good)

“I feel like my First Amendment was violated,” Killian, 16, said. “Freedom of religion and freedom of expression. That’s what I tried to do, and I got shot down.”

Freedom of religion?

Yes, Killian says, his “pirate regalia” is part of his faith — the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

I just KNOW that this will interest most of my faithful readers

All three of them.

Because I know just how cutting edge you are fashion-wise.

Hold on to your credit card and hope you aren't on this list of people who got their onfo stolen from the T.J. Maxx and Marshalls clothing chains.

Just putting this out for the benefit of the public.

This would drive the Left absolutely bananas

I know, I said I wasn't going to do any presidential stuff, but after reading this, I just HAVE to endorse Fred Thompson.
He has links to Watergate!

Cool, one of the biggest made-up scandals of modern times.
They'll be rolling on the ground chewing on the carpet over that.
...I mean a "real" carpet, on the floor- not their girlfr......ohhh- sorry-

Can you imagine how they'd act if Fred Thompson and Tom Trancredo ran together?
WOW, we could power the country on the hissy-fit the Lbs would throw!


Oh, and probably undo alot of the Conservative distrust of the Republican party---
So we KNOW that will never happen.


I mean, WHY do what's best for the country when you can rake in all those cash donations from your "cheap labor" buddies?

Sunday, March 25, 2007

After reading this post I want to do business with them

I'd like to buy one for Karen. Probably some kind of youth/ladies model.
Except that we want an octagonal barrel.

We went to look at some over at Sportsmans' Warehouse the other day, in preperation for BaG day. She hefted a round barrel carbine and then an octoganal rifle, and could see how much steadier it was.

Ok, all we need now is to find a .22 mag with a short stock,,, and do something with her un-winkable left eye. OR teach her how to shoot lefty.

Is it a co-incidence?

Or am I putting WAYYyyyyyy too much Hollywood .....ummmmmmm..imagery into this?

Does this "Maveric"


Kinda remind you of


THIS 'Maveric"?





or am I just giving too much credit to the Left?





OHhhhh, and just for gratutous "sixiness"...

Can you see it?

It's a 3-D cube!





They're called stereograms.
They came and went in the late 90's -early 2000's.
I haven't really seen them since.

If you don't know how to *see* it, follow these steps.
  1. Click on the image to make it full size.
  2. Focus your eyes about a foot BEHIND the screen. (Try looking at the wall behind your moniter and sloooowly sliding youe eyes sideways)
  3. You'll start to see some kind of change in the picture, DON'T change your focus.
  4. Soon you'll get a better image, try slooowwwwly moving your head back and forth a little bit.
  5. When your eyes 'recognize" the image, you can start to look AT it, instead of through it.

Try some more:


This is a hollow cube with rings. (it's kinda hard to see the sides until you get used to it- this could be stereograph 3.0)


Now that you've got the hang of it, try a moving picture!

If you have trouble, try and give it a break- then come back. It took a while before I could just look and *see*.

Ok, one more for Easter! It's bigger, so it might be easier to see.










Ok, one more- how about a naked cowgirl...floating across the ceiling?

Wanna bet?

Geoge Bush sent one of his cunyaus down here to San Antonio to talk to some construction bigwigs.

Among other ummmmmm........policy statements, he said:
In a comment aimed directly at conservative critics, Gutierrez warned that 'the American people ill not tolerate a one sided bill.'
Wrong Mr. Gutierrez, I'd bet that someone with a "one sided" plan would walk away with any election they ran in.

He also went on to state that:
Gutierrez, who was born in Cuba and educated in Mexico, said the United States desperately requires a policy which welcomes immigrants to feed the country's growing economy, saying immigration 'will give this nation the economic edge over the coming century.'


"The reality is that there are thousands of jobs that aren't getting filled, because we don't have enough workers," Gutierrez said. "Immigration is crucial for our economy to grow in the years ahead. This is something we all need to recognize, and it's part of facing our reality."

Ya know, I'm really getting tired of theses PC types acting like we need to encourage these lawbreakers. That they're no different than the LEGAL immigants that are welcomed here.

Let me say again- Mr. Gutierrez, and tell your Jeffe- The reason AMERICANS aren't doing the work is because the pay isn't worth it.

My job is in a slowdown right now, I'm looking at other jobs, but refuse to even consider applying for any that say bi-lingual-BECAUSE I know that the wages and benefits will suck.
I like construction work, but refuse to work for $8 - $12 per hour.
That's what the pevailing wage is in San Antonio because of George Bush's "compassionate" immigration policy, and his continued @ss-kissing on that third world country to the south.

Yeah, I know- it's capitolism. It made America great, but you still get what you pay for. You pay for someone with a thrird grade education who broke the law to work here- you get someone you can't trust to do the work you hired them for.
Without constant supervision.

Keep talking like that Mr. Gutierrez, and watch your popular support sink even lower than it is now.
But that's ok, the big contributors are happy.

I've been meaning to do a post on this

Kinda tying the Liberal Democratic/MSM 'outrage' over the firing of 8 prosecutors, and their search for 'answers'.
If they *really* want to know about firing prosecutors, why not ask Janet Reno?
She has more experience in firing a lot more - for less reason than the Bush 'regime'.
At least they were only fired, and didn't have the FBI sikked on them.

Bush mentioned it the other day, when he proved my post wrong (so far) about throwing Alberto Gonzales under the bus.
Ok, I freely admit I was wrong- so far.

That's a sign of maturity there, you politicians.
Instead of laying blame and pointing fingers at everyone you can, man up and take it. People will respect you more, and trust you, even.

Where was I?
Sorry been having computer problems again. Don't know if it's a bad disc, or a trojan I can't find.

Oh, yea- the witch hunt.
I thought it was only supposed to be evil Conservative Rethuglicans that went after people for ideological purposes. But doesn't it seem that the Bolshevik/Soviet/Socialist mask is slipping alot more now?
It's like they think they have a lock on power and aren't afraid to let the little people see their true face.

The face of Fascist intolerance.
The reason there is a big push to get ill educated kids into college is for socialist indoctrination.
The MSM is full of thought police attacking everyone who isn't in lockstep with their view of the world.
Hollywood actors are sending themselves to re-education spas because they spoke wrongly.
Major newspapers who toe the party line cam headline top secret information, and get praise from the Left, but talking about a glorified secretary is a criminal offense- if you're a Republican.

Just keep going Libs, hopefully it'll sink in to the voters just how bad you are for America.
We survived eight years of Bill Clinton, I hope we can survive 2 years of you.

You just can't get away from it, can you?

I'm going to close my Bank of America account because of their wooing Illegals.
I won't open an account at Wells-Fargo (I'd get my mortgage out, too- if I could).
HSBC eagerly accepts bogus Mexican ID cards, too.
CiTI, nope- I replied to one of their junkmails and told them no to send me anymore until they quit lending to criminals. That stopped it (junkmail)considerably.

SO I went to Woodforest Bank at Walmart, asked about their policies of requireing ID, and what type. She told me that they only accepted official, legal documents accompanied by a SocSec number.
Cool, I'm not supporting Illegals, right?
I went to log-on and set up my account for bill paying and was asked which ID from I'd be using and the number:
  • DL
  • SocSec
  • Tx ID
  • Military ID
  • a f*cking MATRICULA card.
Ok, I guess ALL major banks can't stop drooling over "the bank accounts that Americans won't open", or something.

I guess it's going to be the international Bank of Hondo next.
Hunny, you'll need to change your direct deposit.

You're bored, what do you do?

Hey, how about robbing someones house!

Typical idiotic teenage mentality.
The last line pretty well sums up the attitude of MY favorite 18 year-old.

.....And the picture shows she's defiantly NOT related to Elizabeth.

Snopes takes the axe to another set of "facts"

This one about the 'too good to be true' cellphone meme.

You know,
  • The one about dialing 112 for any avilable carrier?
  • Unlock your car door with a remote?
  • *3370# to unlock hidden battery reserves (so you can continue being a road menace).
  • The Cell phone serial # code, and it's automatic shut-dowm of said phone.
  • The 800-FREE-411, which was the only one that was realistic.
If you're interested in the truth about cell phones, here's the link.
I would have mailed the auther of the blogpost, but they don't have a contact anywhere on their blog that I could find.

I'm going to be the first one to say this

At least I haven't heard anyone else say it yet...

The 2008 Presidential election is going to have one of the worst turn-outs in modern history.

Can you guess why?
Because everyone who is not completely ignoring it will be soooo burnt out with it BEFORE the "NEW and IMPROVED" , "BETTER than EVER" primaries cycle in the first two months of the year.

They're doing it for the chance to rake in HUGE amounts of cash you! So you think you have a say in the election process!

By the time the January, February and (if there are any) March state primaries roll around, voters are already going to have "name fatigue". Come on, do you really think anyone that pays attention to our political process (besides the ones directly involved) CARE about hearing the absolute same cr@p for two years?
I'm already getting tired of it, and it's only March of 2007- a year and a half away from the election.

Can you people give me a break for six months at least?

At one time, I thought -W- had a pair

I guess I was wrong.

Or should I have titled this;
Republicans- caving to Dems since 1994?

Anyway, after having the MSM make nasty faces at him- George Bush is fixing to throw Alberto Gonzalas under the train.

I wonder what kind of masochist is going to volunteer next?
Knowing that the first time a Lib points a finger, his time starts running out, wouldn't make for long-term work for anyone with convictions. Are there anyone with a strong moral compass in D.C.?

I said something about this just a little while ago-
The Dems close ranks and defy any outsider to try to bring any of their party to justice.
The Repubs fall all over themselves trying to be the first to start pulling the offender toward the railing.

Too bad Fred Tompson is a Republican, I'd vote for him. EXCEPT that he'd never make it to the R.N.C. as a candidate because he'd never make it passed the metal detectors with all the knives in his back.


GAWD, I wish we had a Conservative party with some intestinal fortitude.

And you thought your critters were safe?

...Because your pet food wasn't on the list?

Here's another set of names for you to look at....

Menu Foods -- a major manufacturer of dog and cat food sold under Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger and other store brands -- recalled 60 million containers of wet pet food Friday after reports of kidney failure and deaths.

An unknown number of cats and dogs suffered kidney failure and about 10 died after eating the affected pet food, the company said in announcing the North American recall.

Just curious

Look at these pictures carefully.

What do you notice?

No! Not her boobs.

She salutes better than alot of Dems who were in 'Nam.

I have the TV on as backgound noise

I'm surfing my blogroll, and I hear- again the young, concerned childeren asking about their future.

You know- the ones asking where their SocSec will be? the ones wondering about their healthcare, etc,,,
All bought and paid for by AARP.

The fact that AARP have been fundemental in foiling ANYTHING that might have minimised their goodies just dues -SocSec reform, Bush's Perscription Drug boondogle, more bennies no matter what, "If you change anything, seniorsa will be eating dogfood!"


Now they're putting out TV ads
*to help the childeren*
is kinda like cr@pping in the foyer and telling the guests that they need to clean it up, because they stepped in it.

She said, "You put coffee in that?"

The recipe for tonite was pan fried round steaks, about 3/4" thick- and Cottage fries.

The steaks came from a round roast @ $4.27/lb.
Salted and peppered on both sides and left to mull their fate.

The potatoes were sliced on the thin side (around 1/16"), and the onions at about 1/4".
The lard was just right on medium high heat, and in went the taters and onions with a dash of garlic powder and salt.

The steaks went on the lard at a high medium heat, just to get that charring taste---ummm burnt flesh!

The fries and steaks finished at about the same time (for once), and they were introduced to each other for the next step.

Using the steak pan with the good stuff stuck to the bottom, add a good splash of coffee, enough flour to make a gravy, add to taste garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Mix until the stuff on the bottom mixes well with everything else.

Let a Brit taste and see her expression that those ingredients taste so good.
I would call it Red eye gravy, but I think that's reserved for ham.


I also got most of the lawn mowed today.
Maybe the wood will be dried out enough from all this rain to finish the new entertainment tomorrow.

I hate to do this

But, some people need a refresher


Mountain


Mole Hill

Now, about those seven prosecutors who got fired for not doing their jobs
(of looking into voter fraud by Dems).
I have two things to say:
  1. Genralissimo Reno fires ALL federal prosecutor's when the Clinton's started running the White House. The First Liar calmed the minor stir by telling his MSM pals that, "Hey- everyone does it!" 'Nuff said.
  2. They should have fire the Prostituter that railroaded the ONLY people who are actually doing something to protect the border. But then again, that would have p*ssed off the smugglers who are running Bush's immigration policy.

More "Clues from Kurt"

This little gem is for the pendejo in Hondo who decided that (s)he'd waited long enough and was going to cross the road anyway.

You're at a minor crossroad on a state highway. If a semi is coming at you at 40 MPH, he CAN'T stop for your dumb @ss no matter how empty he is. The truck and trailer STILL weigh over 15 tons.

Todays driving lesson:
If you're not sure if you have the room to go......DON'T!
Because you most likely don't.


I'll have to ask my boss to look for tire marks tomorrow, I know the trailer was hopping.

Some Ideas for the latest D.C. anti-war march

I got to do a full workload last night! Yeahh!
Our main customer has all it's lines back up and reprogrammed!

Be sure to buy lots of Sams (Walmart) and H.E.B. sodapop!

I was listning to talk radio as I was driving, and thought of some other slogans for the anti-war marchers , , , That I'd use if I were protesting.

Like the Libertards are going to do while defacing "The Wall" to show how much they 'Support the Troops (but not the mission)'.


Ready?


NO!
NO!
NO!
NO!
Get us out of KOSOVO!


Where is the EXIT STRATIGY for KOSOVO?


The REAL unilateral war
KOSOVO



KOSOVO = QUAGMIRE

Iraq, not like Viet Nam
There are no steps on top of the embassy.


Democrats,
Loosing wars since 1975



Feel free to use them at your next anti-war rally.

Because we KNOW it isn't all about Bu$HitlerHaliburntonMcChimpy.

Uncle Jimbo is back!

No, not that one,

UNCLE Jimbo!
He's giving good advice for y'all heading up to the "Gathering of Eagles" in D.C.


Sounds good, except for maybe Pelosi's Capitol Police.
I mean, are they the ones she ordered to let those the peacful anti-war protesters deface her steps?

Anyway, that "rate the show" sounds good for ANY hippy Socialist/Marxist Bush hating anti-war rally.



H/T the Good eL T.

Blogroll and stuff

I was going to add links to my blogroll today, but lost most of them when I installed a new (older version 1.5 Beta 1) version of Firefox, because the other one lept crashing.

I don't know, maybe it's this computer? since I had F/F 2.0 (the Latest and Best!!!) it's been running like cr@p. I even enabled IE 7 yesterday just to get online. And yes, I had a full cache of spyware when I ran adaware.

All my computers have been slow today, I don't know if the hail did something to the transiver on the dish, or it's ovecast, or itt's just spring break I'm paying for a faster service, I want my faster loading!

The plants finally decided that it's spring. I don't know if it's a coincidence, or that it took a 7" rainfall to decide them, but everything is green or budding.

Cr@p, now I HAVE to fix the lawnmowers carb.

Did I mention AlGores' internet is really, really slow?
Kinda like fast dial-up.

I have the History Channel on

The just got done with "The History of Bullets".

Ok, they got to talking about the new stuff coming out, and 'smart' bullets that can go through body armor and then act like hollow points.
They brought up the L.A. machine gun bank robbers and how out-gunned the L.A.P.D. was.

I got to thinking. Yeah, that's Cali- anyone with a rifle that could have taken care of those two would have been afraid to loan them out for fear of prosecution.

We had a thing in Austin - the U.T. tower sniper of about twenty years ago. After several shots out, he was pinned down by citizens and their rifles until the P.D. finally got an officer up there to finish the job. No citizens were arrested for using their firearms- because the Texas police understood that not ALL firearms owners are trying to kill them, and need their weapons taken away.

Hi, my name is Kurt and I own a gun

I own several as a matter of fact. My wife owns two also.

I just thought I'd throw that out so certain Anti-Gun Liberals wouldn't have to kill more trees to let you know.

I'm also letting you know, because now, we can officially shoot your criminal @ss if you break into our house!

The Texas Fair Defense Act [SB 159] (PDF- sorry) was voted on and overwhelmingly approved by both sides of the aisle to be voted on tomorrow. I think. The website is kinda ... really not easily navigable.

Anyway, if you crooks wanna come over and play; just let me know your flavor:
We have rifles- a 30-06 (1903-A3 where I can take you out at the top of the hill, and your engine block, too). A .22 semi-auto that Karen wants target practice with, she hasn't tried a moving target yet.

We also have 4 pistols in different calibers and actions ranging from .22 to .50 cal and revolvers and auto loading pistols to muzzle loaders (makes a nice hole that shatters bone).


Sorry Hammer, I forgot to credit you for directing me to Misha.

We had a hailstorm last night

I'm glad the trucks were under the carport since the hailstones were a little bigger than grapes. Or big olives, which is bigger?
I'm glad they didn't break any glass in the house, but I'd bet the roof has all kinds of dents now.

Not much is happening here at rancho Trainwreck.
I didn't get a good nights sleep because of the light loads I've gotten and the fect that someone had to almost drain the bank account for her selfish, ungrateful, lazy kids and their trip to the U.K.
We're not going to have enough in my and her check to cover this (big) set of bills this week and do anything but subsist and buy gas.

Gawd it sucks when your main customer has a prolonged work slowdown.
But, I have an interview today, not sure how that'll go with all the jobhopping I've done lately.

But, on the good side- I'm glad I don't own those dogs. NSFW- because of the "educational" toys involved.

A cops take on assault weapons

NO, not a cop takes on assault weapons...

It's kinda long at 10+min, but worth sending to your anti-gun friends.
The last several minutes are worth the wait.



Stolen from Curt.

Ok, I missed our Sabbath Saturday

I worked a long day. My second load at Oak Farm Dairy took 5 and a half hours.
They made a special batch of chocolate milk- just for me!
They forgot this week was spring break, and usually they don't do chocolat milk when schools's out---Except that they forgot to cancel the load.

It was cheaper for them to pay $150/hr for me to wait and let them run the batch than to send the load back. I got a little over $10/hr for taking a nap. (after the free two hour window)

So, on to the Famous "PIGS of the WORLD"

How about the five littlew piggies?


This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy ran WEEE-weee-weee-weee all the way home.

I didn't have any work tonite

So, I spent time going where I shouldn't.

I found this NSFW clip. Really, it involves 'watersports" and a girl band. Really, it's baaad- but, being girls, they do clean up their mess in the end.

I was actually looking for the Hollabck/Constant Sorrow mash-up, but VIACOM decided that we didn't need to enjoy it.

Then we ran accross "Superflexible Girl"

(The music needs to be redubbed,,,but)

I bet these wimmin get flogged the first time they try to arrest a male.
But, then it's the new thing to show how enlightened the RoP is...

How about a looooooong poor-little-me themed n'awlins 'documentary'?
I notice that I heard the President and Vice-President, but nothing about Chocolate Boy. (caution it's over 12 min. long)

So that's what a Bentley looks like? (caution Paris Hilton alert)

I would have thought that there would be older domains.
But I guess it was the Wild WorldWide Web back then.

How many do YOU recognize?

Thursday, March 08, 2007

Well, it looks like it's starting

The backlash against the global warming greenies.

Out in the world we have REAL scientists putting REAL facts out, instead of scary emotional theories.

AND most importantly, in regular life.
I saw this written on a pickups back window the other day,,,it was in AUSTIN! Texas' home of the liberal movement.
"I support Global Warming!"

Today, I saw a Chevy dually with another message.

"Rolling down the road at 8 miles per gallon"

Cool, too bad I'll miss getting filthy rich on my carbon offset scam plan, though.

Just another post about "Global Climate Change"

Actually not much of a post, more of a thought.

The Libs should be happy about global warming because it really shows evolution in action.
You know species changing in response to their environment- OR- going extinct if they can't.

Because, you know it's less hardship to starve to death because your prarie turned to dessert than it is to be shot for meat.

Something to brighten your day

If your a guy

-OR- if you're 'good gay'

And IF You like hot babes- no matter where they work (CUG)


Kiran Chetry says "Good Morning" as only she can...



Sorry for the shortage of posting, but I got another load cut last night. This is the third week that I'll be averaging less than $10/hr, I can't afford to work there much longer. BUT when the pay is good, it's very good. I just can't see it evening out for quite a while. I guess I'll be looking for something I can afford to work at. Too bad though, I really like the job.

AND you'll not the time I posed this, because someone keeps leaving the bedroom door ajar so the newest dog can wake me up as soon as the girls leave for school (around 7:10 AM). Added to the fact that the 18 yr-old forgot she had an orthodontist appt this morning- so I got phone calls too.

(UPDATE 03-09)
This has been up for a day and nobody's mentioned Kirens ...... leg?

Just skip this if you're tired of the Anne Coulter thing

I'm getting kinda tired of Republicans mostly and conservatives jumping all over the Edwards=fag comment.

They say the Libs are using this as an example of how "evil" and "nasty" the Conservatives are. That it was uncalled for. How the Left is watching to see how we handle it.

OF COURSE the left is watching. They're laughing their @sses off at how fast Conservatives started attacking her.
Yeah, what she said was stupid and childish- and we should be on a higher plane than the Left. Yadda, yadda, yadda...

BUT- why do we ALWAYS publicly attack the squeeky wheel?
The Libs know that all they have to do is act "offended" by a comment or misrepresented action made by a Republican, and all they have to do is sit back and watch the fun.

Libs, on the other hand, form ranks and defend the person, if not the act.
Admittedly, they have a willing accomoplis in the MSM, but they don't turn on their own.
They even reward lawbreakers.

Ok, she said something stupid. I have, you have, anyone with a mouth has.
The Left is loving it, the way we're hacking away at her- because we're doing their work for them.
I'm knida glad we have Anne out there. I'm getting tired of always having to take whatever vile crap the Left dishes out because "we're the party of maturity" or whatever- while the Libs say the most vile things and walk away knowing they'll get a pass.

I'm not sorry Anne said what she did- it was a childish statement about a hypocritical public figure. Lets get over it already.

I understood everything he said

Really!




Now, for something completely different!

That much?

I AM surprised...



You Are 24% NYC



Okay, so maybe you've been to NYC. But you probably really live in Connecticut.



But I have traveled to other countries, too.

Maybe I should look at it as even as different as NYC and rural Texas are, we're still Americans and have something in common?

Happily stolen from Miriam.

So the Dems don't like the way our wounded are being handled?

Well, I'm glad they're looking into it.
They're asking what went wrong, and how long it's been going wrong, and naturally making statements about it.

"We need a sustained focus here, and much more needs to be done," Rep. John Tierney (news, bio, voting record) said of a scandal enveloping Walter Reed. Charges of bureaucratic delays and poor treatment there have produced calls in Congress for quick reform.

Tierney said he is afraid "these problems go well beyond the walls of Walter Reed," adding that "as we send more and more troops into
Iraq and Afghanistan, these problems are only going to get worse, not better."

And being Dems, naturally knockng Bush:
Tierney, D-Mass., chairman of the panel, questioned whether problems at the facility are "just another horrific consequence" of inadequate planning that went into war in Iraq; a problem created by contracting out work there to private business, or some other cause.

"This is absolutely the wrong way to treat our troops, and serious reforms need to happen... immediately," he said.


So, since that all of this is comming out now, are their own hands finally untied?
Because we all know hat they care so much, that as soon as they knew, they'd have to do "something" to set it right.
Right?
The controversy started last month with a series of stories in The Washington Post, but lawmakers said reports of the failures go back several years.

Rep. Henry A. Waxman, D-Calif., said that in addition to several government audits, there was a February 2005 Salon magazine story on poor conditions at the hospital's psychiatric ward; a 2006 report on problems screening people with brain injuries and a 2005 think tank report criticizing the complex disability program.

'My question is: Where have you been?" Tierney asked, when the third panel of witnesses took their seats at the witness table. They were Geren, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Schoomaker, and his vice chief, Gen. Richard Cody.


Actually you self serving polititions, the problem's been bad for the last 60- or so years.
You're only now trying to do something with it because it's something else to hit the President over the head with.

Can I tell you what two BIG parts of the problem are?
  1. Half of ALL medschool grads are in the bottom half of their class- where do YOU think they'd work? The same with manegement.
  2. This IS government healthcare we're talking about. If you think this is bad, wait until you have 100 times the workload.
Ok Dems, repeat after me- Military healthcare IS GOVERNMENT healthcare.
I know they don't care, because their government health care won't be the same as OUR government healthcare.

(UPDATE 03-06)
Ya know, I was driving all night last night, and it occurred to me that IF the dems were so concerned about "The Troops" that:
  1. They should SUPPORT the surge
  2. They should stop aiding the enemy by their actions
  3. They should DEMAND that Bush let them take off the handcuffs and proactively defend themselves. You know do away with the PC cr@p and hurt the terrorists and their enablers.
But we all know that's not going to happen, helping Bush would be like stopping breathing- reflexively impossible over the long run.

You heard it here first

I beat Drudge again!

Windows Vista has been hacked!

I'm kinda surprised that it took this long.

There's a lot of thechnical stuff that I have no idea about, but it boils down to the fact that Microsoft is shipping some versions of Vista that don't check for authenticity.

Because the end user doesn't wantto be inconvenianced...

I. . . ahh . . . . .eagerly await your comments

Woman Golfer

A Woman was out golfing one day when she hit the ball into the woods.

She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog in a trap.

The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes."

The woman freed the frog, and the frog said, "Thank you, but I failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes.

Whatever you wish for, your husband will get times ten!"

The woman said, "That's okay."

For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world, an Adonis whom women will flock to".

The woman replied, "That's okay, because I will be the most beautiful Woman and he will have eyes only for me."

So, KAZAM-she's the most beautiful Woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the world.

The frog said, "That will make your husband the richest man in the world. And he will be ten times richer than you."

The woman said, "That's okay, because what's mine is his and what's his is mine."

So, KAZAM-she's the richest woman in the world!

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered, "I'd like a mild heart attack."

Moral of the story: Women are clever. Don't mess with them.

Attention female readers: This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue feeling good.

Moral of the story: Women are really dumb but think they're really smart.


Let them
Continue to think that way and just enjoy the show

PS: If you are a woman and are still reading this; it only goes to show that women never listen!!!

Foreign Object Damage

That's when *anything* is sucked into a jet engine.

The Airedales are really supposed to know about that.
I was a Sea Bee and we learned about it when we worked around airfields.

That's what puts the stamp of *STUPID* all over this story.

Here is some background on jetmech stuff:
"I cannot fathom someone intentionally putting something down the intake of an aircraft," Thompson added.

The single-engine F-16 was being checked on June 26, 2006, inside a "hush house," where maintenance work is performed when noisy engines are cranked up at high capacity.

One of the first things maintenance airmen are taught is not to bring any foreign objects into the hush house, including cameras or debris, several non-commissioned officers testified.

During testimony, prosecutor Maj. Jennifer Kramme showed Master Sgt. William Beasley II a foreign object no bigger than a pebble and asked if one of them was dangerous.

"To smaller (engine) blades, this could be catastrophic," Beasley replied.


So now WE know what Airedales know, -Keep things away from jet engine intakes-
Now, on with the events...

March 3, 2007 (by Erik Slavin) - A staff sergeant who watched as one airman attempted and another threw a small frog into a running F-16 jet engine received three months in jail and a bad conduct discharge in a Kunsan Air Base courtroom Friday night.
Staff Sgt. Aaron F. Wilson, of the 35th Aircraft Maintenance Unit, also received a reduction in rank to E-1 on three specifications of dereliction of duty.

Military Judge Lt. Col. Eric Dillow sentenced Wilson to four months in jail, but the sentence was reduced due to a pretrial plea agreement.

The incident was filmed using Wilson's camera and posted on his public myspace.com Web site, where it remained for nine days.


Remember the "no foreign object rule?"

Now, to show you how absolutely lame the Airman was; even *I* know a fully throttled jet can suck a grown man into it. Lets see what happened when our pitcher took the mound...
Last month, Sr. Airman Welland Wilkerson was sentenced to 30 days in jail and reduction in rank to E-1 for throwing the frog at the engine, although he missed. Wilkerson's sentence was commuted to reduction in rank to E-2 by the wing commander, legal officials said.

A trial date has not yet been set for Staff Sgt. Herman Elizee, who ultimately tossed the frog in the engine.


Ohhh, and just imagine how much his buddies loved to do this:
Kunsan's fleet of 41 jets was grounded so every engine could be checked for potential problems following the frog toss, said wing vice commander Col. Preston Thompson, a former F-16 pilot instructor who testified Friday.

Thompson "got calls from all over the Air Force (asking) "What's wrong with the Wolf Pack?'" following the grounding, he said.

More than 400 maintainers worked over the weekend to check the engines and dispel the possibility that other engines were similarly mistreated, Thompson said.

Sexy

...AND they're on the right side, too.

.
.
.

On the other hand, we have a perfect example that ugly goes all the way to the bone.

" Conservative activists have speculated that Mr. McCain did not want to be seen on television "pandering" to Republican "right-wingers" but wanted to court those same activists at a reception in the same hotel.
"He turned down repeated CPAC offers to speak but then tried to get around us by having his office call the hotel to rent a room for a reception for CPAC attendees -- without first seeking approval of CPAC organizers," said Mr. Lauderback."

Yet another islamic sabbath today

Lets continue on with our piggish celebration of their Holy day and learn more about more pigs in literature.

This book has several of our Islamic friends favorite animals as heros.
The most well known are Napolian and Snowflake.










This book also shows how the world would be if other groups had their way in our land.
This time, though it's not the Moslims, it's the way the Democrats would rule if they could.

Pssst,,,,,,,,,,,,,wanna get a good used cell plan?

I found this site that our overpriced Sprint plan will be going onto.
See we're paying for a $59/mo family plan(550 min) and are paying for nothing.
We don't use 200 min/mo between the two of us, but this swapping site will let you buy the remaining plans.
-OR- like us, let someone else take over.

This Cellswaper site lets you shop for plans or phones (I think) and you take over the remaining plan time. In our case you get the Sprint "Fair and Flexible 550" plan for the remaining 11 months.
Plus two (free) flip phones and chargers. All you have to do is sign on to the remaining 11 months.

Go give it a look if you're interested in a nice used cell plan.

March second,


It doesn't have the same exotic flavor as Cinco de Mayo, does it?

March second should be more recognized than the other, alien holiday.
Because on March second, 1836- Texas became it's own country.


Sorry, long day.

Happy birthday Texas!

This post reminded me of something

Murray had a post about more illegals getting themselves caught.

The 18 yr-old got herself a job at a certain fastfood place that should remain nameless.
She's an alien- a legal one, but....
The ONLY thing they wanted to see to prove her status was her SoSec, card- or a color copy. So they could process her check.
I can't say I've seen alot of non-english speakers working there, but there's alot if english speakers who've overstayed their visas....

But, then I'm sure someone doesn't care who's working there...

As long as he's getting paid.





(UPDATE)
It looks like I somehow jumpstarted the blogroll by deleting some non-posting blogs.

(UPDATE the second) Mar 03
Ok, I can admit when I'm wrong. The fast food joint in question DID ask for another form of ID.
They wanted her school ID. Just because, ya know there are absolutley NO illegals going to public schools in this day and age.

See hunny, I can admit when I'm wrong- gee imagine me even thinking she'd need her green card, or her passport...

That sucks

Been offline all morning, and couldn't even call in- must have been a system wide problem instead of the usual Larado thing.

I can't even blame Google or their new server....




Now I'm off to Austin for a wonderful drive along I-35, and the incredibly courtious drivers there. I wonder how many wrecks I'll see during the afternoon rush hour?
