Rhianna noticed something

She mentioned it the other day.
I was going to mention someething in my usual wonderfully understated and tasteful way.
But I was tired from long days, and just didn't feel like looking for the perfect you-tube, but --NOW-- I think I found it.

I just wonder if she's going to enter the blogontest?

Oh, and by the way

Diana is still dead.

I wonder just what she'd think about the HUGE CARBON FOOTPRINT of all the Libs flying over to extend their condolences.

Isn't Prince Charles one of the forerunners in the global warming extraviganza over there?

Is the Mass- or whatever the Church of England holds- over yet?

I did 60%

Which, considering that some H.S. grads are pretty much functuionally illiterate isn't bad.

How many of the "Must reads" have you read?

And NO, movies don't count!

Oh, in case you didn't know

Today is the second anniversary of hurricaine Katie, trying to clean the toilet.

Are you tired of hearing the "Gimme, gimme's" yet?

How the Big Easy can't even start to do anything to get going even though they've gotten over 12 BILLION dollars? Not even towing the abandoned vehicles off public roads.

This reminds me of a joke

A burglar broke into a house and as he was searching around, he heard someone say:
"Jesus is watching you."

The burglar asked "Who said that?"

"My name is Moses"

He saw he was talking to a parrot and said "Why would any one name a parrot Moses?"

The parrot said "The same kind of people who name a Rottweiler Jesus."

As the vultures circle

Well, it looks like the Reps are going to lose another one due to stupidity.

As you probably have already heard (too much already), Sen. Craig is getting blasted for "questionable" judgement.

He ought to throw everyone into a fit by announcing he's gay and dammed proud, then challenging anyone- especially the Dems to do anything.
Hell, they might even give him a standing O like they did with Barny Frank and his gay prostitution ring.

Ahhhh, *now* I understand

Why we have to press #1 for Anglis.

And here I was thinking they were just too f'ing lazy to learn.
I guess it also explains their abysmal school marks.

Obama! Obama!

He's our man!

If he can't fix N'awlins

No one can!

Go B.H.O!

Ol' Preacher Barry was on the pulpit in N'awlins telling them that in spite of being a Democratic stronghold in a Democratic state, that it was somehow Bush's responsibility to 'fix' all the ingrained social problems there.

Obama, whose day began at First Emanuel Baptist Church, said that long before Katrina, the nation had failed to lift up New Orleans, a city with persistent struggles such as poverty and poor public schools. He said that cannot happen again and that Americans have a "collective responsibility" to each other.

"Racial discord, poverty, the old divisions of black and white, rich and poor, it's time to leave that to yesterday," he said.

"In rebuilding, we've got an opportunity to do more than put up a foundation that for too long failed the people of New Orleans," he told congregants. Some snapped photos of him at the pulpit with their cell phones.

That's right, it's OUR fault that N'awlins is in the state it's in.

And, naturally he wants to throw our money at the Dem's in charge to 'fix' what they've institutionalized.
He outlined a plan he said would help restore the region by:

_providing grants for community policing in New Orleans, which has struggled with violence since Katrina; Throwing FREE money at corrupt city officials!

_offering incentives such as loan forgiveness programs to try to attract doctors and college students; Yeah, and we can make a show about the quirky residents and call it "southern-exposure"! Too bad no-one thought about it before.

_ensuring displaced residents who want to return have a place to stay;
I'm sure most of the cities housing them would like to see them gone, too!

_creating a national catastrophic insurance reserve, which he said would help homeowners struggling with their premiums. Ummm, Allied Van Lines? If they can't afford the insurance, they need to move inland.

At least two other leading Democratic candidates, Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Edwards, also have outlined rebuilding plans and touched on similar themes.

Of course, and it all involves your money being spent on shiftless people supporting the Democrat Socialist lifestyle.

In contrast to the helplessness of ol' Chocolate-boy Nagan and the Democratic controlled statehouse, we have Galveston, Tx's response to the 1900 hurricane...which adjusted to today's money and population, was the most devastating storm in American history.

Despite the unimaginable devastation and what must have been a hard realization that it could happen again, the city immediately began pulling itself out of the mud.

By 10 a.m. Sept. 9, Mayor Walter C. Jones had called emergency city council meetings and by the end of the day had appointed a Central Relief Committee.

Ignoring advice from its sister paper, The Dallas Morning News, that it move temporarily to Houston, The Galveston Daily News continued publishing from the island and never missed an issue. Sept. 9 and 10, 1900, were published together on a single sheet of paper. One side listed the dead. The other reported the devastation of the storm.

In the first week after the storm, according to McComb's book, telegraph and water service were restored. Lines for a new telephone system were being laid by the second.

"In the third week, Houston relief groups went home, the saloons reopened, the electric trolleys began operating and freight began moving through the harbor," McComb wrote.

Residents of Galveston quickly decided that they would rebuild, that the city would survive, and almost as soon, leaders began deciding how it would do so.

The two civil engineering projects leaders decided to pursue - building a seawall and raising the island's elevation - stand today and are almost as great in their scope and effect as the storm itself.

Raising the grade

It's impossible to stand anywhere in the historical parts of Galveston and get exactly the same perspective a viewer would have gotten 100 years ago.

Everything is higher than it was back then, and some spots are much higher.

The feat of raising an entire city began with three engineers hired by the city in 1901 to design a means of keeping the gulf in its place.

Along with building a seawall, Alfred Noble, Henry M. Robert and H.C. Ripley recommended the city be raised 17 feet at the seawall and sloped downward at a pitch of one foot for every 1,500 feet to the bay.

The first task required to translate their vision into a working system was a means of getting more than 16 million cubic yards of sand - enough to fill more than a million dump trucks - to the island, according to McComb.

The solution was to dredge the sand from Galveston's ship channel and pump it as liquid slurry through pipes into quarter-square-mile sections of the city that were walled off with dikes.

Their theory was that as the water drained away the sand would remain.

Before the pumping could begin, all the structures in the area had to be raised with jackscrews. Meanwhile, all the sewer, water and gas lines had to be raised.

McComb wrote that some people even raised gravestones and some tried to save trees, but most of the trees died. In the old city cemeteries along Broadway, some of the graves are three deep because of the grade raising.

The city paid to move the utilities and for the actual grade raising, but each homeowner had to pay to have the house raised.

And how was it paid for you ask?
While Galveston received financial help from the county, state and federal governments, a large portion of the burden had to be carried by the city itself, at the expense of other projects.
mostly by it's self...unlike a certain OTHER city who wants you to pay for everything.

Some things forgotten

I saw the clothespin-gun post at Blogmonicon and although I vaguely remember them I remembered something else from my younger days.

Did you know that a kitchen match, if fired from a BB gun will pop when it hits clothing (or a bony area)? Not that I'd have any firsthand knowledge of that, or anything...

And speaking of things coming out of the dangerous end of a gun, the Dissident frogman has some good tips for any of the Liberal news media that want to report on cartridges hitting an old hag's a frail elderly woman's house in Iraq.

Thanks microsoft

You're giving me more and more reasons to get a Mac next time.

As a PSA, don't install or add anything that needs WGA (Windows validation) until next week...sometime...maybe.

Somehow, the WGA sever is down, and if you try to activate anything, it'll mark your legitimate copy as a pirate:

For those of you doing installations and upgrades this weekend, we recommend that you avoid activation at this time. Remember that you can run Windows legally for 30 days without activating.

If you attempt a validation and it fails, your install may be marked as non-genuine, which could lead to several annoyances. First things first, do not reboot a Windows machine that has been marked as non-genuine. Once you do so, you will lose functionality and the Aero interface. It would be best to wait until this problem has been resolved.

Yep, do the right thing and your computer will only be good for a doorstop.

I'm glad Bill Gates is taking such a proactive approach to something that's been going on for several days now.
We wouldn't want to flood the news with information that could stop computers from going into brick mode,,,when people are doing what you require them to do.

I do have an idea,,,

But I'm sure someone's thought about a Baily bridge.

But that probably wouldn't be worth $27 mil.

Because, ya know..the same engineers that decided to do nothing about the brige in the first place wouldn't want to get something going that didn't cost taxpayers an arm and a leg.

Interesting concept

Drop a bunch of unsupervised teens and pre-teens off somwhere and see what happens.

c-BS was going to do a reality show about it:

The show, "Kid Nation," which is scheduled to premiere on CBS on Sept. 19, is a reality show whose premise is to take 40 children, ages 8 to 15, and place them in a "ghost town" in New Mexico to see if they can build a working society without the help of adults.

Yeah, we all *know* just how responsible most teens are.
I wonder if their parents had to sign some kind of release for their kids to be there?

But after the production ended in mid-May, the parent of one child in the production complained to state officials that the children's treatment bordered on abuse. Four children received medical treatment for accidentally drinking bleach, one child was burned on her face with hot grease while cooking in an unsupervised kitchen, and most of the children were required to work 14 hours or longer per day. They received a payment of $5,000 for their participation.
And money every time they re-run it, and the chance to work thier way up into *real* stardom.
I was in the Navy. I worked longer for less. So does almost every lower enlisted in the military.


Check one.

Check Check.

Check two.

Check check.

Lets try this- it's not your average "Happy-happy joy-joy".......

What are the Vegas odds

That she's already on her way back?

In case you didn't know, the Queen of all illegals got herself deported Sunday.

Now, all the illegals support groups are crying about her being separated from her little bastard son without a known father.

Who just happens to be an anchor baby. because some Liberal juror decided that the part of the 14th Amendment that was meant for ex-slaves needed to be used to push an anti-American agenda.
If she needs her son so badly, and the *race* wants their families to stay together, then deport them all.
Your spouse was/is illegal and you're helping them break the law- follow them back to their third world nation and learn to appreciate what it's like to BE an American.

Ladies, I'm sorry

I know I've been kinda sexist here, but after viewing this, I've seen the light.

Well, actually not...
Because we all know that sensitivity training is a bunch of Bravo Sierra, and this is how sensitivity training SHOULD turn out like if people wouldn't be cowed into letting this PC cr@p make Libs rich be being payed to push this stuff on captive subjects.

Git in mah belly!

Who else would come to mind when you read this article about a Scotsman who ate $20,000 in one sitting?

How appropriate

For this arcticle about even *MORE* global warming!

I mean, c'mon-
"Today is a historic day," said Mark Serreze, a senior research scientist at the center. "This is the least sea ice we've ever seen in the satellite record and we have another month left to go in the melt season this year."

That's not even half an eyeblink in geologic time.
Not even a tic in modern history.

Two things on a semi related topic

As they both are about plastic.

First, I'm sure you've heard about the Mattel toy recall.
After reading the site, I wouldn't mind being a shareholder in 'Big Toy", and appreciat them being proactive in taking care of the problem.
I just wish we had someone to actually go to the source of some of our national problems like that and be able to force a recall of 20 million lawbreakers.

Second is the newest scary "New car smell is dangerous" story.
I had a post about it before. About a week before it was a national scare story- if I remember right.
Anyway, if it were soooo bad for you- why isn't the majority of the worlds population keeling over dead? Most people HAVE ridden in a brand spankin' new ride before.
It's just like secondhand smoke. Why only recentlyhas all this come up, and where are the stats showing in the 40's to mid 60's when *EVERYONE* was smoking weren't kids keeling over in death throws all the time?

Anyway, time to get on the road---there's a big storm in the gulf, hope you filled up before gas hits $4/ gal.

Yep, now the only one that'll be running the country is Cheney.
It's almost like the American ship of state will be rudderless.

The Left will be besides it's self, so you may as well just not even bother turning on the radio or TV for the next month and a half, because of the pre and followup gloating.

A picrure is wort a thousand words

Not much happening here

We have a re-run of Ice road truckers on.

In this episode, TJ has to be airlifted to a hospital for emergency care.
(If you didn't click the link, they're in Canada.)

He got a bill for $12,000 in care and fees.
I thought Canada was, you know "free". Socialised medicine that we're supposed to copy.

I'm not even going to bother fisking this

Except to note that it doesn't mention our influx of disease carrying illegals from third world countries over the last 20 years.
And to mention the ever increasing trend of our blacks to live in the 'hood' with absolutely NO adult supervision or responsibility.

I read about the famous Mustang Ranch

In this article. Which naturally reminded me of this:

And since it's a weekend, and we're talking about soiled doves, their various places of work, and maybe their names...

La Grange

Suzy Q

Penicillin Penny

Walk on the wild side

Now we have concrete evidence of global warming

We have positive proof that melting ice caps can and DO, flood human habitats.

Melting ice caps have flooded a busy village along the British channel.

Except that this happened over 8,000 years ago.
Before the advent of overwhelming human populations polluting mother earth.

I wonder what AlGore has to say about that?

Added to the revised NASA temperature data that puts 5 of the hottest(recorded) ten years on earth before 1940, and only a score of years after the discovery of petroleum power.
But I'm sure the Legacy Media already made sure you knew that, right?

Score another one for the RACE! La Raza

Because they and their third world constituancy just caused another hospital to close.
Actually they weren't even mentioned in this AP article, but the underlying cause was most likely the burden that the hospital couldn't meet the Federal requirements.

LOS ANGELES - Federal regulators said Friday that they are pulling $200 million in funding from a troubled hospital that serves one of the city's poorest neighborhoods, forcing it to all but shut down.

The decision came after the county-run Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital failed two federal inspections.
At a news conference late Friday, Los Angeles County's chief medical officer told reporters that the hospital would close its emergency room Friday night and that patients would be moved to other hospitals within two weeks. The emergency room was closed at 7 p.m. Friday.

"We brought every resource to bear, but in the end it just wasn't enough, fast enough," Dr. Bruce Chernof said.

Can someone answer me?

Why, am I the ONLY ONE one the road at quitting time who wants to go home?
I mean I want to at least drive the frigging SPEED LIMIT, not sit 10 cars behind some
JACK @SS doing 5 TO 10 mph BELOW the speed limit.
You know, pacing the guy in the slow lane and admiring the empty highway in front of you. Or, like the 2008 Suburban, jacking your jaw on a figging cell phone while going 25 in a 40 MPH city.

Gawd, I'm still pissed.
Being assigned to north San didn't help either. Everything takes longer because of either the rock, or the overgrown gardens- or both. It seems hotter up there, too.

I'm looking for a replacement work truck, and can't remember when GMC became the premiere truck of the GM stable. The Japanese trucks are just as expensive- if not more than the Union cost vehicles. I *know* for a fact that Toyota doesn't pay union wages to their labor force in San Antonio. So, is the extra price all profit?

Ohhh, Ford Ranger and Mazda's B series pick-ups are the same- Mazda costs about $500 more. A Ford/Mazda costs about $1500 more for the same trim level as the Chevy Colorado.

Can anyone tell me about the supposed tax break that everyone uses (according to the Greenies) to drive around in absolutely free (Tax break) SUV's?
Is that just for an "S" corp, or could I use it as a sub-contractor for a large nameless cable company?

I've been saying they were Commies

Now I have support fom someone who really knows.

Propaganda Redux
Take it from this old KGB hand: The left is abetting America's enemies with its intemperate attacks on President Bush.
Tuesday, August 7, 2007 12:01 a.m. EDT

During last week's two-day summit, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown thanked President Bush for leading the global war on terror. Mr. Brown acknowledged "the debt the world owes to the U.S. for its leadership in this fight against international terrorism" and vowed to follow Winston Churchill's lead and make Britain's ties with America even stronger.

Mr. Brown's statements elicited anger from many of Mr. Bush's domestic detractors, who claim the president concocted the war on terror for personal gain. But as someone who escaped from communist Romania--with two death sentences on his head--in order to become a citizen of this great country, I have a hard time understanding why some of our top political leaders can dare in a time of war to call our commander in chief a "liar," a "deceiver" and a "fraud."

Good enough creds?

Now we see the parallels between the Communist propiganda and the Liberals echos:
Sowing the seeds of anti-Americanism by discrediting the American president was one of the main tasks of the Soviet-bloc intelligence community during the years I worked at its top levels. This same strategy is at work today, but it is regarded as bad manners to point out the Soviet parallels. For communists, only the leader counted, no matter the country, friend or foe. At home, they deified their own ruler--as to a certain extent still holds true in Russia. Abroad, they asserted that a fish starts smelling from the head, and they did everything in their power to make the head of the Free World stink.

The communist effort to generate hatred for the American president began soon after President Truman set up NATO and propelled the three Western occupation forces to unite their zones to form a new West German nation. We were tasked to take advantage of the reawakened patriotic feelings stirring in the European countries that had been subjugated by the Nazis, in order to shift their hatred for Hitler over into hatred for Truman--the leader of the new "occupation power." Western Europe was still grateful to the U.S. for having restored its freedom, but it had strong leftist movements that we secretly financed. They were like putty in our hands.

And the Lefts' Viet Nam policy?
During the Vietnam War we spread vitriolic stories around the world, pretending that America's presidents sent Genghis Khan-style barbarian soldiers to Vietnam who raped at random, taped electrical wires to human genitals, cut off limbs, blew up bodies and razed entire villages. Those weren't facts. They were our tales, but some seven million Americans ended up being convinced their own president, not communism, was the enemy. As Yuri Andropov, who conceived this dezinformatsiya war against the U.S., used to tell me, people are more willing to believe smut than holiness.

The final goal of our anti-American offensive was to discourage the U.S. from protecting the world against communist terrorism and expansion. Sadly, we succeeded. After U.S. forces precipitously pulled out of Vietnam, the victorious communists massacred some two million people in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Another million tried to escape, but many died in the attempt. This tragedy also created a credibility gap between America and the rest of the world, damaged the cohesion of American foreign policy, and poisoned domestic debate in the U.S.

Unfortunately, partisans today have taken a page from the old Soviet playbook. At the 2004 Democratic National Convention, for example, Bush critics continued our mud-slinging at America's commander in chief. One speaker, Martin O'Malley, now governor of Maryland, had earlier in the summer stated he was more worried about the actions of the Bush administration than about al Qaeda. . .

Ok, go read the rest!

Beth is a gold mine today, that's where I found our ex-KGB buddy at.

Here, we'd call that a dust devil

But up in 'Da City', thay call 111mph winds a tornado! (everybody panic!)

The National Weather Service confirmed that the storm brought with it Brooklyn's first ever tornado since such weather events were recorded. Officials measured it to be an EF2 twister, characterized by winds of anywhere from 111 to 135 miles per hour.

Between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. a string of severe thunderstorms blew through the region, making for an incredible headache for morning commuters. Thousands of New Yorkers found themselves enduring hours of delays in the sweltering heat with subways shut down and vacant taxi cabs hard to come by.

Subways don't run in the rain? Aren't they like, underground and isolated from that weather stuff?

Oh, HI Erica!

Isn't it coming up on the second Katrina anniversary?

And ol' chocolateboy Nagin hasn't even gotten abandoned cars off the street yet.
Much less even trying to do ANYTHING except try to finagle more money out of the rest of Americas taxpayers.

Her — mainly the poor, elderly and infirm — are still sitting in FEMA trailers expecting the government to take care of them.
Naturally BusHitler isn't doing enough after steering Katrina right into the Big Easy.

Apples and oranges

Tonight, I guess there will be a home run record broken- sort of.
This new record will be set off with a huge asterisk because of the differing ideas the players had on winning.

Barry Bonds overtook Babe Ruths record the other night, but the only performance enhancing chemicals the bambino used were hot dogs and beer.
I bet Barry can't even name the cr@p he used.

The only dope Hank Aaron used came in a red and white can.

Ok, I bashed the Air Force the other day

.....Deservedly so... (I was stationes at Sheppard AFB), but now here's one for the Navy!
I don't think we've still lived THIS song down yet.

And yes, I was in CE-"A" school in Gulfport, Miss. shortly after this came out.
Just out of curiosity, any signalmen out there? Just wondering what they said with the flags???

And as a nod to the wife's country...
I DO notice the British Navy is made up entierly Officers,,,
I guess the enlisteds were busy dancing with the Capitains daughter on the gun deck for farting, or not showing the proper respect to a Middie's coat...
(Which is why we had that little dispute in 1812)

Did anyone else catch this?

In the most recent AP article about how badly we're running the entire Iraq thing, and just how badly the Iraqis have it; two things kinda jumped out at me.

BAGHDAD - Iraq's power grid is on the brink of collapse because of insurgent sabotage, rising demand, fuel shortages and provinces that are unplugging local power stations from the national grid, officials said Saturday.

Rising demand? Isn't that kinda like people are USING more?
If the economy was so bad, it seems like the demand would be falling.

Electricity shortages are a perennial problem in Iraq, even though it sits atop one of the world's largest crude oil reserves. The national power grid became decrepit under Saddam Hussein because his regime was under U.N. sanctions after the Gulf War and had trouble buying spare parts or equipment to upgrade the system.

The power problems are only adding to the misery of Iraqis, already suffering from the effects of more than four years of war and sectarian violence. Outages make life almost unbearable in the summer months, when average daily temperatures reach between 110 and 120 degrees.

The U.N. sanctions couldn't keep Saddam from building palaces all over the country, or working on WMD's, but somehow he just couldn't find the off the shelf parts to maintain the electrical system?
If I remember right, the only reason Baghdad had 24/7 electricity when Saddam was in power was because the majority of electricity was funneled into Baghdad, and the rest of Iraq was left to live in the stone-age.

No power for A/Cs makes life almost unbearable? Is that just for Baghdadians? Do the rest of the Iraqi citizens have less of a hard time living like they have for millennia just because some reporters are without A/C in their hotels?

I couldn't help it

Fergit politics for the week-end

Lets just let the killer take over...

Whole Lotta Shakin' Going on

Great balls of fire

Good golly Miss Molly!

Roll over Beetoven

Chantilly Lace

Well, chalk up another one

Yep, besides actively working to lose the war, Nan and crew are working on screwing the poor even more.
They just passed an unnecessary price increase to everyone who uses anything that oil touches. Way to go Nan, food will be going up, so will all commodities that travel on truck or rail...which is basically-----EVERYTHING.

I can't believe that the dems are so dense that they think increasing taxes on "Big oil' that prices won't rise to meet the new user tax. Or is that what they want.

Foods going up because of the fertilizer going up, and the transport cost.
fuel is going up because of taxes AND the increased cost of just transporting it.

Toilet paper...oh, they can use the Constitution, they're already shredding it when it comes to stealing votes in the House.

Life lessons

Learn everything you can before going off half cocked!

A Cowboy sitting in a saloon one Saturday night, he recognized an elderly
Man standing at the bar who, in his day, had the reputation of being the
Fastest gun in the West.

The young cowboy took a place next to the old-timer, bought him a drink and
told him the story of his great ambition.

"Do you think you could give me some tips?" he asked.

The old man looked him up and down and said, "Well, for one thing, you're
Wearing your gun too high. Tie the holster a little lower down on your

"Sure will," replied the old-timer.

The young man did as he was told, stood up, whipped out his 44 and shot the
bow tie off the piano player.

"That's terrific!" said the hot shot. "Got any more tips for me?"

"Yep," said the old man. "Cut a notch out of your holster where the Hammer
hits it. That'll give you a smoother draw".

"Will that make me a better gunfighter?" asked the younger man.

"You bet it will," said the old-timer.

The young man took out his knife, cut the notch, stood up, drew his gun In
a blur, and then shot a cufflink off the piano player.

"Wow!" exclaimed the cowboy " I'm "learnin' somethin' " here. Got any More

The old man pointed to a large can in a corner of the saloon.

"See that axle grease over there? Coat your gun with it."
The young man went over to the can and smeared some of the grease on the

Long story short

Karen wants to make money to go home to visit.
she got a part time job, guess what she's doing?

I'd rather talk about that than the cr@ppy day I had.
Every time they put me on the north side, every drop is f8cked-up somehow and it takes longer, too.

...AND, I bypassed a two lane wreck on 410 by going thru town and discovered the truck's starting to run hot. I just replaced the water pump two years ago, too.

(UPDATE) 08-04-07
Scot is the's Mary Kay!
Can't believe no woman got that.

Also on the truck front, I fixed a vacuum leak on the A/C-heater vents, and the truck's running like it was four years younger. Shouldda fixed it when I first started having probs....instead of relying on mechanics.

Ummm,,,you Air Force peeps

You really need to work on your people skills.

Report on military bullying
August 1st, 2007 by lex

I received an advance copy of the investigation results into allegations that bullying was widespread in the US military - allegations that, if true, might have shaken a volunteer organization to its very core. Fortunately for the US Army and Navy, the results are reassuring.
But I’m sufficiently worried about the Air Force to quote the entire report at length:

“DEFENSE BULLYING REPORT - Air Force Worst of the Three Services

A recent report by experts has found that allegations of “a culture of widespread bullying and brutality” within the Military are, in the most part, unfounded.
