American Heros and Leaders

Ex-astronaut planning insanity defense
By TRAVIS REED, Associated Press Writer

ORLANDO, Fla. - Former astronaut Lisa Nowak is pursuing a temporary insanity defense on charges that she assaulted and tried to kidnap a romantic rival, according to a court document released Tuesday.

“Temporary” insanity?! WTF?! What exactly is “temporary?”
“Temporary” as in from the time your little sick ass brain thought that the best course of action in your life was to pack a bag with a BB pistol, disposable diapers, rubber tubing, plastic garbage bags, a black wig, a folding knife, a hammer, latex gloves, a cache of unindentified pills and a few other items including a computer disc containing pictures of an as yet unidentified woman in “various stages of undress” and in “bondage situations,” then drive 1,000 miles to do ‘god knows what’ to someone who was fucking the guy you wanted to be fucking or were fucking or whatever. On top of that, you’re a Navy test pilot and NASA astronaut.
Yea, you’re fucking insane alright, but it aint temporary and nobody better say it is and sweep the whole thing under the rug. This bitch needs treatment. . . long term treatment. . . like, lock the door and throw away the key treatment. . . keep her kids away from her.
Man, back in the day we thought Buzz and Ed Mitchell might have been a little weird. . . not much, just a little eccentric, but this winged whack job makes them look clearly like the sane straight arrow men they really were.
That brings us to the space agency that hired this little twisted sister. NASA is one big cluster fuck. They can’t accomplish a schedule of manned launches because of hardware problems they can’t seem to fix and they end up with THIS little personel problem. Oh, and the latest rumors coming from an internal investigation into astronaut selection are that a couple of NASA astronauts have actually flown drunk. WTF?!
Somebody, somewhere has GOT to figure out how to get NASA back into the business of space exploration and back into a culture of excellence that reflects the spirit of Apollo. That will take a vision and a goal. Is that possible in today’s society?

Craig says 'I am not gay,' did no wrong
By TODD DVORAK, Associated Press Writer

BOISE, Idaho - A defiant Sen. Larry Craig denied any wrongdoing Tuesday despite his guilty plea this summer in a men's room police sting, emphatically adding, "I am not gay. I have never been gay."

Whats with these right wingers and homosexuality? They are so et up with their own bullshit that they can’t even face their own homosexuality even when confronted with it head on. This guy has apparently dodged rumors and accusations about his homosexuality for years. Now, after being popped by a cop for public bathroom homosexual misconduct . . . wouldn’t it be nice to get homosexuals out of the closet AND the public restrooms? Most of the gay men I know are very classy and dignified gentlemen. What’s with all the “public restroom” publicity?. But back to the senator from Idaho (He da ho). . . Do yourself a favor buddy and fess up. You know you’re a closet gay, we know you’re a closet gay, I’m sure that wife you’ve been parading around all these years knows it too. Maybe once you’ve admitted your own homosexuality you’ll be more likely to vote FOR legislation that helps people in the gay community and AGAINST legislation that is blatantly prejudicial against gays.
What I’d like to see is Sen. Craig get up before the media like he did yesterday, but instead, admit that he is homosexual, apologize for being so repressed that he had to resort to public restroom hijinks aplogize for voting against the gay community in the senate, and then swear that with whatever time he has left in the senate, he will do whatever he can to support the gay community.
Not gonna happen, but wouldn’t it be nice?

Y'all just do the next right thing. Deep down inside you know what it is, now just do it.

You have an interesting blog. My hero has always been Roy Rogers. He was the real deal -- not just his film characters, but in his personal life.

I just started a new blog that might interest you called Common Sense Agriculture, Conservation and Energy. Drop by sometime and check it out.

Remember whenever Roy or one of his side kicks would shoot a bad guy, the bad guy always fell dead and landed spread eagle on the ground. When I was a kid and we played "cowboys and Indians," I was always an Indian and I always landed the same way.
My heros have always killed cowboys.
