Lies, smoke, mirrors and plain old bullshit in the news and from me

Physicists challenge US missile claims
By DESMOND BUTLER, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - A number of top U.S-based physicists have concluded that the Bush administration used inaccurate claims to reassure NATO allies about U.S. missile defense plans in Eastern Europe.

GASP! "The Bush administration used inaccurate claims?!" Say it aint so.

They say the planned Polish-based interceptors and a radar system in the Czech Republic could target and catch Russian missiles, thus threatening Russia's nuclear deterrent. . .
The Pentagon agency overseeing the missile program, the Missile Defense Agency, rejects the scientists' claims, saying their analyses are flawed. The United States says the missile system is intended to counter a threat from Iran and could not take out Russian missiles. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has dismissed Russia's concerns as "ludicrous."
But the six scientists, whose backgrounds include elite American universities, research labs and high levels of government, said in interviews that Russia's concerns were justified.

Let's see. . . who ya gonna believe? The Pentagon and Condoleeza Rice or a group of physicists?
I've known some physicists in my life. I've spent a great deal of time in the scientific community. Physicists are probably, as a group, the nerdiest bunch of scientists there are and as such, are probably the most honest and the least concerned with the consequences of their truths.
I'll believe the physicists every time over a bunch of Washington whores.

I once knew a guy who was a psychopathic liar. . . . we'll call him "Dave." Dave would rather tell a lie than the truth even if the truth served him better. Dave was so good that you would sit there, knowing he was a psycho liar but listen to him intently believing every word he said. You'd walk away and five minutes later slap yourself and go, "dooooh!" He got me again! How is that possible?
After dealing with this guy for a while (he actually worked for me) I became fairly good a picking out lies from truth. This administration tries to lie on the same level but falls woefully short. Their lies are so fucking transparent that anyone ought to be able to see them. . . but no, the american proletariat seems content to swallow whatever is fed them and congress is so full of liars they don't care.

"Childrens do learn," Bush tells school kids
Wed Sep 26, 2:03 PM ET
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Offering a grammar lesson guaranteed to make any English teacher cringe, President George W. Bush told a group of New York school kids on Wednesday: "Childrens do learn.". . .
As Bush addressed the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, a marked-up draft of his speech briefly popped up on the U.N. Web site, complete with a phonetic pronunciation guide to get him past troublesome names of countries and world leaders.

Since the spineless democrats in congress refuse to execute justice and impeach this little low life POS, I guess we have to endure another year of such embarrassing public displays from this pitiful excuse for a president.

Obama camp plays down wife's comment
By MIKE GLOVER, Associated Press Writer
DES MOINES, Iowa - The campaign of Democrat Barack Obama moved quickly Thursday to dampen any expectations raised by Michelle Obama who said this week that her husband has to win Iowa.
Most polls in Iowa show the Illinois senator in a tight race with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and John Edwards. During a visit Wednesday to Davenport, Iowa, Michelle Obama commented on the importance of a strong showing in the caucuses.

Good luck Mr. Obama. You're talking about IOWA. This is easily the whitest white bread state in the nation. These people define 1950's Americana. Don't be looking for them to be the first state in the history of the United States to select an African-American to run for president.

Bush looks for fix for airline delays
By KIMBERLY HEFLING, Associated Press Writer
Thu Sep 27, 7:07 PM ET
WASHINGTON - President Bush promised on Thursday to take steps to reduce air traffic congestion and long delays that have left travelers grounded. "Endless hours sitting in an airplane on a runway with no communication between a pilot and the airport is just not right," he said.. . . .
"We've got a problem," Bush said. "We understand there's a problem. And we're going to address the problem."

Ahh, so the corpo-fascists finally decide to tackle a domestic issue and they pick the one most likely to effect their own people. Face it, poor folks fly in airplanes about as often as rich folks take the bus.
Besides, don't look for these "CORPO-fascists to fix a damn thing about the airlines that causes he airlines to reduce their profits by a single dollar. More than likely, they will come up with a "fix" that somehow give the airlines an advantage financially and continues to leave passengers sitting on the ramp and in gate areas for hours while claiming to have fixed the problem.

Bush seeks new image on global warming
By JOHN HEILPRIN, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON - Myth: The president refuses to admit that climate change is real and that humans are a factor. Myth: The U.S. is doing nothing to address climate change. Myth: The United States refuses to engage internationally.
So begins a hand-sized handout, easy for reporters to pocket, issued at the State Department where President Bush on Friday was to cap two days of talks at a White House-sponsored climate change conference that is as much about salesmanship as it is about diplomacy.
Unwilling to cut U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases, which make up a fourth of the world's total output, Bush is turning to China, India and the other biggest polluters to swap green technology and other voluntary ways of doing something about global warming.

Why don't these scum sucking pricks just shut the fuck up. Everyone knows they are NOT going to do a damn thing to compromise the profitability of ANY U.S. corporation, so just stop with the bullshit. Here's a hint for all you ignorant proles who guzzle this bullshit. . . "voluntary" compliance among corporations does not work.
OK, here's an even bigger hint for you dumb fuck weenies who believe the rhetoric and lies this administration spews. . . if we take away all police patrols on all the highways in the USA and tell everyone that we would like them to "voluntarily comply with the speed limits," what do you think would happen?
Does that help?

Thompson unaware of death penalty cases
By ERIK SCHELZIG, Associated Press Writer
Thu Sep 27, 8:51 PM ET
FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson said Thursday he was unaware that a federal judge had ruled last week that lethal injection procedures in his home state were unconstitutional.
Thompson also told reporters he was unaware that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed this week to consider a Kentucky case about whether lethal injection violates the Constitution's ban on cruel and unusual punishment.
Thompson's support for the death penalty was a major part of his campaign platform when he first ran for the U.S. Senate in Tennessee in 1994. Asked for his response to the recent Tennessee and Kentucky cases, Thompson responded, "I hadn't heard that. I didn't know."

Come on folks, do we really need another ignorant moron in the position of president? Haven't we had enough of stupid presidential appearances, neglected public works, botched foreign policy and too numerous to count absurdities? Don't we want an administration that is actually run BY the president and not some handfull of Vaderesque henchmen ("Vaderesque". . . remember, you heard it here first) appointed by a panel of power brokers from the corporate royalty?

I'm tired Mom. Can we go back to the 90s now?

Senator Robert C. Byrd

Senator Byrd calls for an end to funding the war in Iraq.

I've had a love-hate relationship with my state's senior senator for over 35 yrs now. Let's face it, Bob Byrd hasn't always been the most enlightened politician in America. He once belonged to the KKK and he filibustered against the Civil Rights Act back in . . . uh, . . . I think 1966. . . please correct me if I'm wrong.

Since the Corpo-fascist Moron Monkey Boy administration took over America and began shredding the Constitution of the United States, invaded the Mid East and pillaged the national treasury, I have grown to respect and truly admire the statesman and man Senator Byrd has become. He has been a lone voice at times railing against this war from the start and defending the Constitution of the United State at every turn. How sad that other senators haven't felt the urgency to defend and protect our country from within the walls of congress.
We elected a senate and house with a democrat majority. Nothing seems to have changed. Time for other options.

Please go and read this. . .

Just 50 years ago…

Hunting with bait

U.S. snipers accused of 'baiting' Iraqis
By PAULINE JELINEK and ROBERT BURNS, Associated Press Writers
WASHINGTON - Army snipers hunting insurgents in Iraq were under orders to "bait" their targets with suspicious materials, such as detonation cords, and then kill whoever picked up the items, according to the defense attorney for a soldier accused of planting evidence on an Iraqi he killed. Gary Myers, an attorney for Sgt. Evan Vela, said his client had acted "pursuant to orders."

When I was a kid, we once began throwing bread in the pond by our house while standing on the dock and then shooting the fish that came to the top with our bb guns. Somebody came along and made us stop. It was an older woman and she told us we were being "barbaric." I shamefully agreed with her.
To this day, it is illegal in this state to bait deer while hunting. . . you can't hunt where there is or has been a salt lick or feeder. It's considered unfair.
What kind of monsterous scumbags do we have running the military? Are these accusations anything less than barbaric? Do they go beyond "barbaric?"
Hell, when I was a teenager, we'd investigate anything. We'd pick up anything and carry it away to either later discard alongside the road or maybe keep, thinking we'd "make something out of it." I remember my dad cleaning out the garage a few years after I left home and commenting on the stupid stuff he found. Hell yes we'd have collected "suspicious materials."
Come to think of it I still stop and check things out that I see laying along the road. A couple weeks ago I threw a big length of stainless steel exhaust system into the back of my pick-up. It had obviously fallen out from under someone's car and they didn't stop to get it so I figured it was up for grabs. You never know when you're going to need a nice chunk of 3" SS pipe out here on the farm. I'm damn sure glad no motherfucker was sitting up on the hillside with a .306 picking off the picker.

Another great idea from the campaign trail!

Here's a good idea from that mental giant, Mitt Romney:

"I want our kids to know how to Google and Yahoo and everything else, so that when they do a report on George Washington, they don't have to go to the encyclopedia but they can go to Wikipedia and they can learn what's happening on an online basis as kids around the world are doing,"

This isn't something he off-handedly said five years ago. This is something he said yesterday to a group of Silicon Valley workers in prepared comments. GREAT IDEA MITT! Fuck those cumbersome encyclopedias, let the kids do their research on an often bogus and totally uncredited internet source. This is a source that anyone can use to add information to it's archives. If I want to get on their site and add information on "corpo-fascist republicans," I can. Then some 6th grader looking up "republican" might be able to reference my contribution on "corpo-fascist republicans."

Come on, we've had eight years of a Moron Monkey Boy for president, do we really need another one? Is there an intellectual in the house? . . . if we could only harness the collective intelligence of the flock of turkeys I've got down in the barnyard. . . yea, that's it. . . "Sagacious Turkeys for President." Really, why not? But then, if they won, a lot of people would have to go to the store for their Thanksgiving bird and wouldn't have the goodness of an organically raised, pasture fed giant white turkey.
Man, politics is so complex.

A lasting legacy

Bush says Clinton will be Dem nominee
By TERENCE HUNT, AP White House Correspondent
WASHINGTON - President Bush, breaking his rule not to talk about presidential politics, says he believes Hillary Rodham Clinton will defeat Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential primaries. Bush also predicts that Clinton will be defeated in the general election by the Republican nominee.

What the fuck and why the fuck does anyone care what Moron MOnkey Boy has to say about the democratic primary races? It makes absolutely NO difference what this piece of shit buffoon thinks. . . about this or anything else. I wish the press would at least give a nod to the fact that this little brain damaged dry drunk village idiot has no bearing on what goes on behind the doors of the White House.
After Nixon left the White House we got the inside scoop on midnight wailing prayer vigils and the rest of his insanity. Post Reagan we learned that Reagan the Traitor was pretty much out of it with alzheimers through much of his second term. Can you imagine the absurdities that are going to be revealed when Moron Monkey Boy leaves office? Of course Daddy Bush has had his presidential files sealed as has ChimpBoy had his files as governor sealed, so it might be a little more difficult for this stuff to come out, but we'll wait. Some former advisor will sprout a conscience between now and the next decade and we'll be able to read some 175 page work of literary brilliance tell all that'll get him right with god and a million dollars of two.
What kind of crazy assed absurd bullshit will we be viewing in 2018?

Serious political scandals

Palin wants Stevens to address probe AP - Fri Sep 21, 6:38 PM ET
JUNEAU, Alaska - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Friday she wants some answers from U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, a fellow Republican, who is under federal investigation.

OK, I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that the SagaciousHb is going to go on a rant about what a crooked SOB and receant bastard this republican Senator Stevens is. . . right? You know you want me to. You'd like to see me slay and fillet this little right wing guzano.
Well, I aint gonna do it. It appears to me that the hoopla surrounding these charges are about him taking some materials and free labor from one of his friends who is also a supporter and also might have benefited from legislation he was involved in. Is that about it? Big fucking deal. Yup, that's right. . . big fucking deal.
This guy has been in the senate for decades and the worse thing he's done is take some free labor and enough material to redo a bathroom in his house?! WTF?
We've got a presidential administration that is waging war to please their corporate royalist bosses and we're worried about some senator letting a personal friend remodel his house for free?! Fuck this shit. It's nothing. Nada. Of no consequence.
Get the corporate fascists out of the national treasury. Quit using my tax dollars to promote the religious fundamentalist's agenda. Quit sending young American soldiers off to the MidEast to have them come back by the tens of thousands either in boxes or severely maimed.
Oh, and fuck you people who will let yourselves become distracted by such partisan tripe while the Constitutiion of the United States is shredded.

To all you national and local politicians. . .
I don't care what you do in your personal life. You can suck anonymous cocks in public restrooms, have your house remodeled by your constituency, fuck your baby sitter for all I care, but just do right by the voters of this country. Make it a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Always serve the common good. Do that, and as far as I'm concerned, like we say out here on the creek and in the barnyard, 'I got your back.'

Who will ask somebody why?

I often wonder what might have been. . . if Phil had not died so young.

Outside of a Small Circle of Friends
Phil Ochs 1967

Look outside the window, there's a woman being grabbed
They've dragged her to the bushes and now she's being stabbed
Maybe we should call the cops and try to stop the pain
But Monopoly is so much fun, I'd hate to blow the game
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends.

Riding down the highway, yes, my back is getting stiff
Thirteen cars are piled up, they're hanging on a cliff.
Maybe we should pull them back with our towing chain
But we gotta move and we might get sued and it looks like it's gonna rain
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends.

Sweating in the ghetto with the colored and the poor
The rats have joined the babies who are sleeping on the floor
Now wouldn't it be a riot if they really blew their tops?
But they got too much already and besides we got the cops
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends.

Oh there's a dirty paper using sex to make a sale
The Supreme Court was so upset, they sent him off to jail.
Maybe we should help the fiend and take away his fine. (*)
But we're busy reading Playboy and the Sunday New York Times
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends

Smoking marihuana is more fun than drinking beer,
But a friend of ours was captured and they gave him thirty years
Maybe we should raise our voices, ask somebody why
But demonstrations are a drag, besides we're much too high
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends

Oh look outside the window, there's a woman being grabbed
They've dragged her to the bushes and now she's being stabbed
Maybe we should call the cops and try to stop the pain
But Monopoly is so much fun, I'd hate to blow the game
And I'm sure it wouldn't interest anybody
Outside of a small circle of friends

Demonizing the victim. . . the American way?

Damn. I knew it wouldn't be long before the man started trivializing the events that precipitated the protests in Jena, LA this past week. It was only a matter of time before "questions" began creeping into the mix and someone decided that the justice handed out in those backwoods of LA wasn't THAT bad. Here's te start of it:

Black and white becomes gray in La. town
By TODD LEWAN, AP National Writer
JENA, La. - It's got all the elements of a Delta blues ballad from the days of Jim Crow: hangman's nooses dangling from a shade tree; a mysterious fire in the night; swift deliberations by a condemning, all-white jury.

Look bozo, if you're going to trivialize, why not just come right out and mock and poke fun. Maybe you could have said "It's got all the elements of a negro spiritual. Troubles on top of troubles, calls from across the water, woeful injustice. . . "

Fuck these mass media corpo-fascist pricks! You don't believe there is institutional racism in this country? Look who is going to end up being villianized.

Here's an even better one:

In Logan county West Virginia, six sick ignorant human monsters held a black woman against her will for a week while sexually assaulting and physically abusing her in some of the most horrendous ways imaginable. Guess who's character is being questioned in the local press for the past week. . . yup. The victim. I haven't read a thing about the six human pieces of shit who perpetrated the crime, but we've found out in a number of articles that got front page headlines that the victim had some bad check warrants out on her and three years ago she pressed charges against her parents for abuse that were later dropped. . . the implication was that they were false charges.

What's it going to take? How long are people of color going to have to fight against the society they are trying to be an equal part of? How long will people of the lower economic classes continue to have their necks stepped on every time they step up to the doors of opportunity. How long will society's power brokers offer a carrot on a stick in one hand and deliver the whip in the other?
I am so sick of the fucking insanity in this country! Perhaps it is time for the people to demand equality on all fronts . . . or else.
Barnyard politics have prevailed for too long in this country. The Constitution of the United States is suppose to prevent this bullshit and give us the opportunity to build a fair, just and truly free society. It's time we demand that those goals be met. . . or else.

Jena 6 Rally!

Wow! "Thousands" of protestors are rallying in Jena, LA at this very moment. Surprisingly, the mainstream mass media seems to be covering the event. Check it out on the internet at!

Maybe the African-American community will motivate others to raise their voices high and protest more of the absurd BULLSHIT going on in our society both socially and politically.


Morons and other MonkeyBoys

Study sees rise in men not washing hands

CHICAGO - The gender gap has widened when it comes to hygiene, according to the latest stakeout by the "hand washing police." One-third of men didn't bother to wash after using the bathroom, compared with 12 percent of women, said the researchers who spy on people in public restrooms. They reported their latest findings Monday at a meeting of infectious disease scientists.

So about 22% of American are disgusting filthy pigs who don't wash their hands after using a bathroom. With the gumping of America proceeding at a very strong pace, is it any surprise? This is simply a subtle social symptom of America slowly becoming a third world nation. How long can it be before diseases brought on by poor sanitary habits begin to creep into our society? Next time some lug nut wants to shake your hand, remember, 1 of 3 men don't wash their hands after pissing.

New Yorker pushes limits of the "locavore" life
By Timothy Gardner
Sun Sep 16, 10:51 AM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - . . . Freelance food writer Howard knew about "locavores" -- people who try to eat only locally produced food. But seeing one locavore at a market squint at a map while asking a pig farmer where exactly he lived in New York state, gave Howard the idea to try out life as an extreme locavore -- in the biggest U.S. city.
the 800-square-foot (74-square-meter) backyard and garage to his Brooklyn, New York, house.
He soon learned it was hard work -- seven days a week, six to 16 hours a day. . .

Ok, this is the first spot where I go WTF?! I've got 100 acres and it doesn't forcee me to work that hard.
. . . some of the rabbits died from maggot infestations.
"I was not so much a farmer ... as an undertaker,"

Again, WTF?! How in the fuck do rabbits become "maggot infest[ed]?" Sounds like a dirty filthy operation to me. How were those 6-16 hours a day 7 days a week spent?
. . . he suffered hardships. Howard nearly sawed off a finger building the chicken coop and went without alcohol because making a home distillery was too much work.
That only proves he's a stupid alcoholic.
In the month of reaping what he sowed, he lost 29 pounds, both from the work and sparse meals, mostly eggs, tomatoes, greens, and chicken stew.
WHAT? Working THAT hard, raising rabbits, chickens and ducks and you're starving? Yup, stupid.
Financially the farm was perhaps unsustainable. The costs rose to $11,000 -- or more than $120 per meal for the month.
$11,000!?!?! WTF?!?!?! I know people who could farm for years on that kind of money. Hell, I don't have that much in expenses in a year on my 100 acre poultry ranch.
But now his family has a greater appreciation for the business of food and the people who grow it,
I'd say they should also have a greater appreciation for what a moron this guy is. How inept do you have to be to pull this off. . . and then have the gall to publish such pitiful exploits? And then they might wonder why everyone else in the country assumes NYers are bozos. . . but they don't because they're too consumed with themselves.

Bush calls for expansion of spy law
AP - 1 hour, 2 minutes ago
FORT MEADE, Md. - President Bush said Wednesday he wants Congress to expand and make permanent a law that temporarily gives the government more power to eavesdrop without warrants on suspected foreign terrorists.

Oh here's a good idea! More invasion and violent acts upon the Constitution of the United States! Let's see if the congress will continue to drop to their knees and take it in the face from the corpo-fascist traitors.

Recently I heard that snide little twit Bill Maher (the right has Denis Miller, the left has Bill Maher) on his HBO show urging women to not expose themselves while breast feeding their children and then he unbelievably went on to compare breast feeding to masturbation. WTF?!
How fucked up, Victorian and prudish is that? Obviously this is a person who has no kids and never was involved in a program of raising a child that included breast feeding. I find such comparisons and views repulsive and nothing but childish . . . oppressed childishness.
I agree with almost everything this little impotent wise-ass punk says, but on the idea that women who are feeding their baby need to treat it as if they are masturbating?. . . grow up you little dip shit.

Wrapping my head around reality

My head is really fucked up about this recreant act of racism that occurred in Logan County, West Virginia. Where does one begin? How do we make sense of it or proceed in a constructive manner in this horrid affair? I've been mulling these questions over in my mind for the past few days and all I come up with is a sick feeling.

It's a tragedy on two levels. Of course, the first is the sad, sad personal level upon which this has occurred. Megan Williams will be forever traumatized by the horrors which she endured at the hands of these skank sub human monsters, and then one has to wonder how, in this post-modern society can a group of human beings become such monsters? The second level is the broader social commentary that it makes about where we are in our progress as a society.

OK, we can't judge the whole country or even most of the fine folks down in Logan County by a small group of inbred, completely uneducated, human monsters, but in the aftermath, I've read a number of quotes from area people talking about the recurring racial tension not just there in Logan County, but in the capital city of Charleston. I mean, let's get real, racism is alive and well in the United States of America and the biggest problems we have. It defines us in so many ways. It identifies us as a backward primitive society. Our technology has taken us to the moon, but we still treat people differently according to skin color.

I use the term race, but SagaciousHillbilly the biologist hates to use that term whenever there is an alternative. It only adds to the misconception that there are significant differences between the different people of the world.
When a biologist defines different "races" of a single species, they are looking for significant difference in anatomy and instinctive behaviors. Those differences are not present in homo sapiens. There ARE no significant genetic differences within our species. When we refer to different races within our society it is merely a sociological term, not biological. Biologically, we are all the same within our species and there are no different races.

Back to Logan County. . . is it a reflection of the nation? I say "yes."
A hundred or so years ago, the coal operators had to populate southern West Virginia in order to have enough workers to extract the coal. . . Logan County, along with the rest of Southern West Virginia is all about coal production and not much else. . . The coal operators employed a system of recruitment called "a judicious mix." They hired (indentured, but that's another story) equal numbers of African Americans, dirt poor European immigrants straight off the boat, and equally poor white people from the deep south. They used each group against the other in order to maximize production. A good example of this would be when a supervisor position became available. The bosses would go to the southern whites and tell them that in order to secure the position they needed to show their superiority at production, then they would go down the road and tell the blacks and immigrants the same thing. And on and on they'd go in an endless cycle of mock competitive workmanship. This is part of the reason that the unionization of the mines was so successful and forceful. We hear all about Mother Jones, John L. Lewis and lots of other white people in history classes when the United Mine Workers and the Mine Wars becomes the topic, but no one hardly ever talks about the huge influence that African American workers had upon the movement. Black workers were major supporters and organizers at the time. They were heavily involved and influential in the process.

Don't believe it? Pick up a copy of Joe W. Trotter's book "Coal, Class and Color." He tells a very interesting and revealing story of the real facts about the coalfields of Southern West Virginia in the early 20th Century. Mr. Trotter is a professor at Carneige Mellon University and one of the leading scholars on the labor movement and African American involvement. Mr. Trotter grew up in southern West Virginia. . . I suspect he knows how to get eggs out from under a chicken.

So what does this have to do with the current state of racial bigotry in America? Well, here's a community that has been mixed for almost 100 years. Almost everyone living there is of the same poor working class roots. So why does skin color matter when you're all poor working class struggling against an oppressive industrial machine run by rich corpo-fascist bosses? Some would say it's natural human pecking order. That is just another excuse. It's institutionalized racism. By pitting one group against the other, by denying history and other manipulations of society, the corpo/government entities of Southern West Virginia have successfully managed the social fabric to their advantage. These piece of shit fuck heads don't give a damn whether you learn real history or not. All they care about is getting what they want out of the population, which is maximum return for minimum investment. It's all about social engineering to serve the corporate greed machine and they have become VERY successful at doing it.

Yea, my Uncle Bob is a racist prick, but he's not really the problem. The problem is that he has been convinced, through government, media and other institutions, that people different from him are inferior and somehow do harm to him.
So next time you're confronted with some racist agenda, and I'm not talking about some ignorant moron making a snide comment, but an institutional agenda, think about how it serves the power machine and how it might relate to CHEAP LABOR, because I truly believe, that when it comes down to the lowest common denominator, it's all about CHEAP LABOR.

America's sad story

According to the latest polls, 1 of 3 Americans approve of thee job the Moron Monkey Boy (Bush the Chimp) is doing. 1 of 4 approve of the job the members of congress as a group are doing. This can only lead a sagacious one like this hillbilly to respond with WTF?!

This means that 33% percent, or somewhere around 100 million Americans think this ignorant American traitor is doing doing a good job. Another 75 million think the lilly livered bought and sold congress is doing ok.
Can this be anything but a huge indication that this country is simply too stupid to exist for much longer? How long will it be before the majority of the continent of North America becomes an even more gigantic problem for the world than it is today? How long will it be before the Europeans and the Asians are saddled with the task of figuring out what to do with a nation of poor ignorant proles with a zero economy and absolutely no direction whatsoever starving and living in squalor.

Come on, let's get serious. No presidential administration has ever performed so contrary to the best interests of the people of this country. They fuck up on top of fuck up. Then they admit absolutely no wrong. For the past six years, this administration has been fucking up a war that should never have happened. It was started based upon a pack of obvious lies yet the American people bent over and said "stick it in." Once again tonight, the moron president, who in fact is nothing but a puppet of much more powerful people, will go before the American public and ask that they be given more time to fix the problems they have created in Iraq. Again, the congress and the American people will sit there on their knees and take it in the face. What a pitiful bunch of idiots the American public has become. I doubt that anything could save this tribe of buffoons at this point. When people get to the point where they question nothing and wish only to be saved from fabricated threats by the very people who created the threats, there is no hope.

For the past seven years NOTHING has been done about working on our country. The ignorant proles have been buying into this terrorist fantasy like a bunch of 3 years old listeningto their big brother in the dark talking about closet monsters. We have a crisis in healthcare in both the administration of medical services and the health of our citizens, we still have children who are hungry with no opportunity for education or advancement living in abject poverty, our national debt is so absolutely absurd that it's impossible to comprehend, our food supply is teetering on the verge of crisis our dependence on foreign oil is sucking our economy dry while filling the pockets of the corporate royalists. . . we are a mess. But 100 million Americans think it's all ok. We are in line to get exactly what we deserve.

Every farmer knows that you've got to put back exactly what you take. It doesn't work any other way.

So when will America's eulogy be given? 15 years from now, 20, 30, 40 years? I don't know how long we can coast on the greatness that was once the United States of America. It surely won't last very long at the rate these piece of shit whore politicians and their puppet master are expending what little fuel we have left.
History will probably find it hard to believe that a nation could have risen and fallen so quickly and so definitively while accomplishing and then losing so much and missing such a gigantic opportunity for humanity.

So much for capitalism. It wasn't much more successful than communism.

Indescribable horrors

Details emerge in W.Va. torture case
By JOHN RABY and TOM BREEN, Associated Press Writers

BIG CREEK, W.Va. - For at least a week, authorities say, a young black woman was held captive in a mobile home, forced to eat animal waste, stabbed, choked and repeatedly sexually abused — all while being peppered with a racial slur.

Fucking inbred ignorant hillbilly mother fuckers!

Last week I was all over Louisiana for being a backwoods bunch of dickheads for perpetrating the Jena Six case. I actually implied that around here, such terrible things couldn't conspire together to make such injustice occur. Well fuck me.

Ya know, sometimes, I hear stories that make me believe that old time justice might not have been a bad thing at times. Maybe it would be best if they just let these pieces of shit lose. Let nature take it's course. How else do we achieve justice in a case like this? I don't know exactly where this woman is from in Charleston, but I know black families from most areas of the city. What kind of burden will they be under to explain something like this to their kids. How will they do it in such a way that their kids won't develop serious negative feelings toward the larger class of people that these slack jawed hillbilly morons are a part of. How is any black person from West virginia going to feel next time they need to take a trip down into the southern part of the state. What if someone needs to send their wife or daughter down Route 214 into the southern West Virginia coal country? There is a large black population down there in Logan County. How are those people going to be effected by such a recreant event.

And what of "20 year old Megan Williams?" How will she continue to live her life knowing that someone is capable of such indescribably horrible acts? Will she ever find peace or will her dreams be haunted by this horror forever?

Finally, what about the 49 year old mother and her 25 year old son, the 46 year old mother and her 23 year old daughter and the two twenty something males who perpetrated this act? These people were all intimately involved in all the horrors committed against this woman.

I don't understand what motivates such behavior in human beings. This isn't "animal" behavior. Animals don't act like that. Wild animals always have some reason for committing violence against other beings. This is bahvior that has no explanation or even the remotest of reason. This is the kind of behavior that makes an anti-capital punishment advocate like me say "well, maybe there are cases where we're better off just exterminating these mother fuckers." We certainly don't want them ever be free again or ever breeding, do we?

Sorry, no cute barnyard philosophy here. This defies anything philosophical, logical or of reason.

One more thing. If you're a white person reading this, next time you hear someone use a racial slur, think of what happened to this young woman. Think of the people who did these things and how racial slurs efffected their life and shaped them into the monsters that they became. Now, next time you hear another white person use a racial slur, do you really want to stand there and make like you didn't hear it? Is it really something you should just let pass and ignore?

Think about it.

You call that fat?!?!


I didn't want to touch this one, but man, it pisses me off.

Let's get real. I'm a 54 year old man who prefers the company of women who are at least somewhat older than my oldest daughter, so Britney Spears does almost nothing for me. Her music, what miniscule amount I know of it, is contrary to most of what I love about music. That being said, I've got no alliegence to Ms. Spears and couldn't give two shits about whether she's in rehab, out of rehab, performing well or not performing well her bubble gum pop crap music, but when I saw a number of headlines and pictures on the net that talked about her being "fat" and her performance at the MTV awards being really bad, I had to look.
This might be a little too skinny:

You call that fat? WTF is the matter with these people? The woman in that picture is anything but fat. Oh, and after two kids? Gimme a break. I've dated a number of mothers and been married to two different women with two kids. Most of them have looked pretty damn good after having kids, especially my wife and ex-wife, but Ms. Spears looks amazing. Now, should she be wearing that skimpy black bikini while performing? Maybe not, but then again, why not? Maybe that's something the tabloid scum sucking press can comment on, but "fat?"

What kind of fucked-up image are we giving our wives and daughters when we call healthy looking women bordering on skinny like Ms. Spears "fat." The whole idea just gets me sick. what do we expect from our wives and daughters? That they be on continuous 1000 calorie per day diets? That they spend all their free time focusing on making their bodies look like adolescent boys? Those of you who believe Ms. Spears is "fat" or in any way denigrate her weight are simply ridiculous pin heads. I wonder what many of these promoters of bulimia look like?
It's hard to find a decent looking blond woman in a black bikini on the web, but this is about right:

Now, we do have some serious problems in this country with overweight fat assed slack jawed morons putting a huge burden on the healthcare system. I know a number of people with huge fat bellies who complain of diabetes and bad backs. Well guess what you fucking moron, it's probably because you're carrying around 100 pounds strapped to your belly. What the fuck do you expect?!?! It gets me sick when I pick up my youngest at her high school and I see herds of 200 pound adolescent children waddling down the sidewalk. What the hell are their parent's thinking. Isn't that grounds for child abuse?

But back to Ms. Britney Spears. How about a little support for someone who has been through some tough times. you'd be lucky to have a daughter who, by the time she was 24 yrs old was a multimillionaire, and had two children. On top of that, she has apparently fought addiction. How fucked up would you be if by the time you were 16 yrs old you were worth millions and had millions of people making huge demands upon your time and intellect. Fuck all you detractors who want to see her fail just because you are some pitiful little loser writing for some pitiful little tabloid news organization. Do some real wrting. . . like me. . . post all sorts of trash you know nothing about on a free blog buried deep in the backwoods of the internet instead of posting the crap you write out in the open where people actually read it.

HEY! How about those pictures? It only took me 10 minutes to figure it out. Blogspot makes this all too easy.
Stay tuned for lots of free images in the future. So let's take a poll, what kinds of pictures would you like to see? Barnyard animals? Hillsides? Fields and pastures? My fat belly? Barnyard animals?

Troop withdrawl and other lies

"Petraeus talks of troop withdrawal"

That's the headlines, here are the facts. General "Betray us" Petraeus was speaking only of 30,000 troops between now and next year. That's only 18.5% of the troops currently in Iraq in the next year. At that rate, we'll be there for the next six years.


That's not talking of "troop withdrawl," that's talking about maintaining the same level as before the "surge" (escalation) until way past next year. And that's all he's talking about. . . pulling back the "surge" (escalation) troops over the next 11 month period. He only said that maybe more could follow.

Here's a good line from his testimony when he was questioned about where his loyalties lie:

"I wrote this testimony myself. It has not been cleared by nor shared with anyone in the Pentagon, the White House or the Congress."

I suppose technically that could be correct. Are we to believe that after days and weeks and months of meetings and head banging with Moron Monkey Boy (Bush the Chimp) and his monkey handlers that you have reached these conclusions entirely on your own and they do not reflect the political agenda of the corpo-fascist regime? Lying piece of shit.

Oh and here's a gem. Ambassador "Crock of Shit" Crocker said that the "troop buildup" (escalation) prevented a "debacle."


Is that like when you're fucking some whore and just as you're getting off she stabs you twelve times and then shoots you through the chest but then, as they're hauling you away on a stretcher to die on some emergency room table, you remove the condom you were wearing and say "what a success, I prevented contracting an STD!"

The really sad numbers are that in a recent poll 36% of Americans believe that the "surge" (escalation) has helped stabilize Iraq. Yes, more than one of three American proles are on their knees taking it in the face from these corpo-fascist traitors. . . the gumping of America is working.

So if you're General "Betray us" Petraeus or Ambassador "Crock of Shit" Crocker, how do you face your kids? What do you say to them on the eve of delivering those words to congress and the entire American people knowing that your lies and misdeeds are going to shape policy that is going to see the further corruption of our system and very possibly the eventual downfall of our country? What do you say? Perhaps it's not a problem, because when you are such a lying deceitful low life piece of shit, you naturally raise lying deceitful low life pieces of shit. So I guess you just tell the kids what you're doing and they say "good work dad. Can't wait to spend the millions those lies are going to get us."

Hell, what are he majority of the over 500 house members and senators going to say when they vote for further funding of this Iraq atrocity? "I had no choice?" Yes you did you scum sucking corpo-fascist lackey. Yes you did.

Buffoons, the world's greatest moron and other idiots

It would all be quite entertaining if so many innocent victims weren't involved.

Calif. gray whale shot with machine gun

NEAH BAY, Wash. - An injured California gray whale was swimming out to sea Saturday after being shot with a machine gun off the western tip of Washington state, officials said.
Coast Guard Petty Officer Kelly Parker said five people believed to be members of the Makah Tribe shot and harpooned the whale Saturday morning. The extent of the whale's injuries were not immediately known.

OK, I'm all for Native American fishing and hunting rights. The dominant culture has an obligation to make sure that any aboriginal culture has 100% freedom to express themselves culturally, but come on, a machine gun? I suspect there are some tribal elders who are appalled. What a bunch of bozos. . . just goes to show, idiocy crosses all cultural lines.

Bush shows gift of gaffe at APEC summit
Fri Sep 7, 11:03 AM ET

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Even for someone as gaffe-prone as U.S. President George W. Bush, he was in rare form on Friday, confusing APEC with OPEC and transforming Australian troops into Austrians.

. . .at a business forum on the eve of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Sydney.[where they had to move people out of the balconies and down to the front rows so that the place didn't look empty to the TV cameras. . . yup, he didn't exactly draw thenm in in Sydney].

"Mr. Prime Minister, thank you for your introduction," he told Prime Minister John Howard. "Thank you for being such a fine host for the OPEC summit."

. . .Later in his speech, Bush recounted how Howard had gone to visit "Austrian troops" last year in Iraq.

. . .Upon finishing his speech, Bush took the wrong way off-stage and, looking slightly perplexed, had to be re-directed by Howard to a center-stage exit.

I was going to comment on each part of this astoundingly absurd report, but really, the only thing I feel like saying at this point is: "Will someone PLEASE make this outrageously idiotic moron shut the fuck up!" Normally I don't give a shit what other people think, but having Moron Monkey Boy displaying himself like this on the world stage is like having your mentally challenged sister standing on the corner by your house soliciting for 50 cent blow jobs.

Bin Laden branded `virtually impotent'
By BEN FELLER, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Seemingly taunting Osama bin Laden, President Bush's homeland security adviser said Sunday the fugitive al-Qaida leader is "virtually impotent" beyond his ability to hide away and spread anti-American propaganda.

Remember the black knight in the Monty Python movie who upon having his arms cut off commented "a mere flesh wound?" That is how absurd this skanky pile of pitiful propaganda sounds. Really, these Bush administration ministers of propaganda sound much more impotent than Bin Laden himself. Considering his resources and infrastructure, Bin Laden has been much more successful in attaining his goals than the Chimp Administration has been in theirs. The corpo-fascsit liars can't even get control of a third world country or capture a fugitive running freely around the hills of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Meanwhile Bin Laden turned this country upside-down, caused us to establish a culture of paranoia, put us into a horrible condition of national debt, caused the revocation of our constitutional rights, and generally terrorized the entire proletariat population of what was once the country with the most freedom and one of the highest standards of living iin the world.
Yea, he's "virtually impotent." Well, what is he "really." Meanwhile, the bottom feeding scum sucking Chimp Boys are destroying our country in their quest to empty the national treasury not only for today, but on into our grandchildren's generation.

Airline tells woman her outfit won't fly
Fri Sep 7, 10:35 PM ET

SAN DIEGO - A 23-year-old woman who boarded a Southwest Airlines plane in a short skirt for a flight to Arizona says she was led off the plane for wearing an outfit that was considered too skimpy.

Who the hell are these people, The People's Airline of Communist China?
What kind of ridiculous censorship and infringement upon individual rights is this? Fuck Southwest Airlines. Make other arrangements!

Thousands of GIs cope with brain damage
Sun Sep 9, 7:45 PM ET

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The war in Iraq is not over, but one legacy is already here in this city and others across America: an epidemic of brain-damaged soldiers.
Thousands of troops have been diagnosed with traumatic brain injury, or TBI. These blast-caused head injuries are so different from the ones doctors are used to seeing from falls and car crashes that treating them is as much faith as it is science.

How Ironic that all these injuries were caused by a presidential administration with a puppet president in office who was brain damaged by years of chronic alcohol and cocaine abuse.
No, I really mean that. I've worked with hundreds of alcoholics and addicts in the past decade, and believe me, Moron Monkey Boy exhibits all the signs.

Gitmo panels struggle to assess facts

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - After years of indefinite confinement, many detainees at Guantanamo Bay say they feel they may never receive justice, according to transcripts of hearings obtained by The Associated Press. Fewer than one in five of detainees allowed a hearing last year even bothered to show up for it.

Two words. . . "due process."
Oh, you say that only applies to American citizens? Well fuck you and fuck your fucked up interpretation of the American spirit. Or do you even have any sense of the "American spirit?" Probably not since anyone who thinks this even has any semblance of righteousness has got to be either a corpo-fascist royalist, or a corpo-fascist propaganda guzzling prole. Doesn't leave much room for embracing the American spirit now does it?

I've been working my hay fields the past couple days. For a farmer around here, this is a fairly intense and important time as our bread and butter depends upon getting in a good hay harvest which means getting it cut, cured and in the barn before it gets rained on. It requires an immense amount of hard physical labor and usually involves a lot of mechanical work on complex machinery (ever see the inside of a hay baler?). Today, three of my neighbors spent the whole day helping me get about 10 acres of hay baled, loaded and stacked in the barn.
We enjoy being good neighbors to each other. It feels good on both sides.
Be a good neighbor. . . to all your neighbors.

What chance do we have?

Bush advisers favor current war strategy
WASHINGTON - President Bush's top two military and political advisers on Iraq will warn Congress on Monday that making any significant changes to the current war strategy will jeopardize the limited security and political progress made so far, The Associated Press has learned.


Here we have a U.S. Army general who has sold his soul to the corpo-fascist regime. This guy is a traitor to the United States of America. He, like the rest of this administration, including the Moron Monkey Boy, Bush the Chimp, need to be arrested, tried for treason and sent to jail. They have compromised the security of our country by engaging in this war in Iraq without provocation. The result has been the unneeded dispersal of our troops away from our own shores and unavailable to respond to real potential threats. This war in general has also resulted in crimes against humanity. Hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis are now dead and an entire population and culture have been completely turned upside-down and nearly destroyed. . . but back to General Petraeus. . . this guy has decided that going along with the agenda of the administration is better than honestly portraying the situation in Iraq and the administration has decided that they can use the military as a political tool.

America is an invader. America is being run by a rogue criminal regime. The American government is guilty of war crimes.

According to the above article:
“Both Crocker and Petraeus will say the buildup of 30,000 troops, bringing the current U.S. total to nearly 170,000, has achieved some success and is working better than any previous effort to quell the insurgency and restore stability,”

My god, how fucking far can these lying pricks take the American public? How far can these lying pricks take the Congress of the United States of America?

If this pile of stinking rotting lies isn’t met with outrage and protest by the American public and our legislatures, I fear we are doomed to end up a thrid world country by the middle of this century. Perhaps some time in the next 25 years the Europeans and the Asians will be holding conferences on what to do about “the American problem.”

When our government becomes a twisted purveyor of lies like some Orwellian propaganda machine, and the public follows along like proletariat morons, how far are we from being a crumbling empire?

The Jena Six

Last year, in Jena, Louisiana at the local high school schoolyard, a black student went and sat under a tree that was the traditional gathering spot for white students. The next day, three nooses were found swinging from the tree. Two students were suspended for doing it, but the school board rescinded the suspensions so they were never disciplined.

Welcome to the 21st Century Louisiana style.

How pissed off would you be if you were a black student at the Jena, LA high school? What if you knew who perpetrated the act? If you are anything like the typical American male, you know exactly what would happen in a case such as this. . . somebody is going to get an ass whopping, and that’s exactly what happened. An 18 year old white kid by the name of Justin Baker ended up with bruises, abrasions and a slight concussion. He was treated in the local emergency room and then later that same day he attended a school activity. End of story, right? Not so fast . . . prosecutors got hold of the case and soon indicted six black students with attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges.


Now, I don’t know how they do it in LA, but here in rural Appalachia, if six guys get together and attempt to murder someone, that someone is at least going to come close to dying. They sure as hell are going to do more than spend a couple hours in the ER and they sure as hell aint gonna show up that same day for some school activity.
But ya know, the other thing is, even here in rural Appalachia, if some one or group of students hung a noose in a tree on school property with the intent of intimidating another student of African- American race, they sure as hell wouldn’t have their suspension rescinded by the BOE. In fact, I suspect they would be expelled from the school and sent to some alternative learning center. In our school systems around here, “bullying” has been righteously noted as an unacceptable and intolerable form of behavior. I aint saying we all skip through the tulips together in one big happy melting pot of cultural bliss, but we at least make an effort and we sure as hell don’t tolerate blatant racism and bullying.

Wouldn’t it have been SOOOO much better for Jena, LA if the principle in charge had taken this whole thing a bit more seriously and the BOE had backed him. Maybe take the event as an opportunity to show some of the white kids involved the real face of nooses hanging from trees with real people hanging from the ends of those nooses. It’s a horrid ugly sight and there are many photographic records of the lynchings that went on in the earlier part of the 20th Century. It wasn’t so long ago. In fact, it could have been those kids’ grandfathers or even fathers who did the lynching or were on the receiving end of the lynchings. Yea, we’re all THAT close to those events. So ya know, when some bunch of white kids start playing games with nooses, receive slaps on the hand or less, get their ass roughed up by a group of black kids and then the black kids get indicted for attempted murder and threatened with 80 year prison sentences, I gotta believe that not much has changed from the days when a black man could be lynched for having been seduced by a white woman.

I wonder, how many people really understand the horror, the terrorism, the real effects of things like lynching and the legacy that remains from those events? Where is the humanity?

So when are people going to stop their racist bullshit, think about how their actions affect others and do the next right thing? I fear we won’t last much longer in this country if it doesn’t start happening soon.

Thank you ABB for bringing this to my attention. . . which begs the question: WHERE'S THE MEDIA!!!!

What are you "indicative" of, Whoopie?

Goldberg defends Vick in `View' debut

NEW YORK - So much for the sedate alternative to Rosie O'Donnell on "The View."
Whoopi Goldberg used her first day on the daytime chat show Tuesday to defend football star Michael Vick in his dogfighting case.
Goldberg said that "from where he comes from" in the South, dogfighting isn't that unusual.

"It's like cockfighting in Puerto Rico," she said. "There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of the country."


Who is Whoopie trying to kid. First off, Newport News, VA, where Vick grew up, aint exactly the south and it sure the hell isn’t rural. I’ve lived in the rural south most of my life and I’ve never heard of anyone having a dog fight. There’re lots of cock fighting going on if you happen to know where to find it, but not much dog fighting if any around here. Dog fighting sure aint “indicative” of the south I know.

From what I hear, dog fighting is most common in poor urban neighborhoods. If I’m wrong, somebody please correct me.
So why does Ms. Goldberg feel compelled to defend this slack jawed moron dog killer/torturer before the masses? I dunno. Could it be some form of momentary common sense depletion? I’ve generally liked Ms. Goldberg and agreed with any social commentary I’ve heard her make, but this one just doesn’t make any sense to me. Now granted, I’m not the smartest dog in the pack, so who knows, I may be missing something. If I am, help a dumb hillbilly out and let me know what it is.

Dog fighting “indicative” of living in the south? WTF does she think we are around here, a bunch of slack jawed inbred toothless backwoods hicks with no ethical or moral sense of right and wrong? Maybe it’s time for me to let lose with some well worded jabs at people from LA or people who have worn their hair in dredlocks for 25 years.

The surge is working, so is my shotgun.

Bush sees possible troop cuts in Iraq
AP - Mon Sep 3, 6:36 PM ET
AL-ASAD AIR BASE, Iraq - President Bush raised the possibility Monday of U.S. troop cuts in Iraq if security continues to improve,

Next he’s going to declare victory. . . or better yet, “Mission Accomplished!”

Civilian deaths in Iraq rise slightly in August, with more than 1,800 killed
Boston Herald - Sep 01 9:27 AM
BAGHDAD - A huge suicide attack in northern Iraq caused civilian deaths to rise slightly in August despite security gains elsewhere, making it the second deadliest month for Iraqis since the U.S. troop buildup started. . .


OK proles, listen up. Before you go buying into this bullshit of “troop cuts” and ‘improved security” in Iraq, THINK! “1,800 civilians killed” and that’s only according to US military figures. It’s hard to tell what the real numbers are.
Get real, the “troop surge” (it was called “escalation” during Viet Nam) is like your girlfriend’s father when you were a teenager standing outside your car parked in the driveway. While he’s there you won’t be sticking your tongue in her mouth or unsnapping any bra straps, but once he goes back in the house, there will be plenty of tongue action and nipples will be squeezed. Ok, ok, don’t like the 60s teenage wet dream analogy?

Last night, the deer only got a couple pumpkins out of my pumpkin patch. They’ve been averaging six or eight a night the past week or so. They break a hole in the things and eat out the insides. Then they kick them over the hill. So how did I make them cut back on their night time raids? Well, it was fairly straightforward. About every hour or so throughout the night I went outside with a shotgun loaded with really light bird shot in one hand and a one million candle power spotlight in the other hand. Every time there was a deer looking back at me in the spotlight, I let loose a blast of birdshot in its direction. By two o’clock AM there weren’t any deer hanging out in my pumpkin patch.
I wonder what will happen if tonight, then tomorrow night I don’t go outside and sting every deer that enters my pumpkin patch? I’ll bet that by Friday evening, there won’t be a pumpkin left in my pumpkin patch.
The deer live outside in my woods, my hay fields and in my pastures. They know every rock and every twig that’s going to snap when they walk from one spot to another. They know every hole and every patch of briers. They hear and see everything. Eventually, the pumpkin patch will belong to them. They WILL outlast me. I might harvest a few pumpkins and sell a truck load or so, but they’ll end up standing out there munching on whatever is left. The same goes for the corn in my garden and the hay in my fields. The deer will win when all is said and done.

Common sense: This country was founded upon it. I fear it will crumble from lack of it.

Morons, mortals and heros in the news

Can lottery be unlucky?
One Powerball winner says he was cursed by lottery luck.

Here’s some of the “bad luck” that has randomly befallen Mr. Jack Whittaker.
One teenager died in his residence of an apparent drug overdose. A year or so later, his own grandaughter was found dead of an apparent drug overdose. Random bad luck?

While in an alcohol and who-knows-what-else induced stupor, $250,000 was stolen from his car outside of a cheap dirty 3rd rate strip club of which he was a nightly patron.
Another time, someone stole a comparable amount out of his car as it sat in his driveway.
Lessee, you’re a famous local person who is known to carry huge amounts of cash, you do stupid things like leave those huge amounts of cash in your car while drinking yourself silly in a 3rd rate strip club and leaving it in your car after a night of heavy partying. . . random bad luck?

Accused of blatant sexual harassment at a local gambling joint, found guilty and sentenced to pay up. Random bad luck?

Busted for drunk driving multiple times. Sentenced to rehab. No show, drama, another sentencing, legal wrangling, etc, etc. Random bad luck?

After years of blowing huge amounts of money on lots of legal, semi-legal and illegal activities and such things as “here’s $500 honey, show me your tits,” he declares bankruptcy. Random bad luck?

Gimme a break. This guy is just another moron. How do I know this? He lives in the same county that I live in. I know a guy who was VERY close to him for many years doing a lot of his dirty work. This is local legend. Believe me, I’ve but grazed the surface of the dirty deeds of this guy and pretty much only covered the public stuff.

“Random bad luck” my ass. The only thing that has to do with luck in this case is the fact that this slack jawed moron bought a lottery ticket and won the biggest jackpot in history (at the time). After that, it was pure unadulterated stupidity.

Sen. Craig resigns over sex sting
By JOHN MILLER, Associated Press Writers
Sun Sep 2, 6:17 AM ET

BOISE, Idaho - In a subdued ending to a week of startling political theater, Sen. Larry Craig announced his resignation Saturday, bowing to pressure from fellow Republicans worried about damage from his arrest and guilty plea in a gay sex sting.

Is there any end to the entertainment value in the news. Wow, talk about a moron. Sen. “I am not gay” Craig has certainly provided a wealth of it this week. He began by adamently proclaiming “I am not gay, I never have been gay.” Then it was revealed that there have been many rumors and much gossip through the years over Sen. Craig’s sexuality. In particular, his homosexuality. So when the Minneapolis Airport Police set up a gay sex sting in the public rest rooms of their airport, they just happened to catch the innocent “I am not gay” Sen. Craig. Does this moron think he’s fooling somebody? Is it possible he believes that even one person in America believes him? I’d bet the profit off the hogs in my barnyard that even this fool's wife doesn’t believe him.
Ok, so now crawl into your pitiful little corner of the world and keep telling yourself and your right wing homophobic former constitutents that you are not gay. At least there will be one less self hating, homosexual in the legislature telling other homosexuals that in this country their freedom and rights to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness are less than other people’s. Good riddance you piece of shit.

Has a mythical beast turned up in Texas?
By ELIZABETH WHITE, Associated Press Writer
Sat Sep 1, 5:25 PM ET

CUERO, Texas - Phylis Canion lived in Africa for four years. She's been a hunter all her life and has the mounted heads of a zebra and other exotic animals in her house to prove it. But the roadkill she found last month outside her ranch was a new one even for her, worth putting in a freezer hidden from curious onlookers: Canion believes she may have the head of the mythical, bloodsucking chupacabra. . . .
But what folks are calling a chupacabra is probably just a strange breed of dog, said veterinarian Travis Schaar of the Main Street Animal Hospital in nearby Victoria.

One of the most popular internet news articles of the past 24 hours. . . Yea, we all like a little bit of entertainment now and then. But seriously, did anyone REALLY believe that someone had found a “chupacabra” and why is the nation press even aware of this story? Lessee, if I take a chicken head, a rat’s body, a couple of bat wings. . . I think I got me an innerestin critter down in my barn.

Sci-fi throngs boldly go ... to Atlanta
By ERRIN HAINES, Associated Press Writer
2 hours, 58 minutes ago

ATLANTA - Allen Hansard did not want to be one of 500 Supermen at this year's DragonCon parade. Determined to stand out among hundreds of sorcerers, intergalactic soldiers, superheroes and other sci-fi characters, Hansard spent weeks on his Hawkman costume. The gold helmet alone took him three months, and the gray wings cost $1,000 at a costume shop.

Morons? Naw, just weenies. Weenies having a good time. No harm here, but it does give me the opportunity to inject a funny story.

My son and wife were in Boston last year looking at colleges. They were staying in a Cambridge hotel where there was a “GALAX” convention going on. They got into the elevator with one of the participants and inquired as to what a “GALAX Convention” was and were told by this obviously gay man that it was a “gay and lesbian science fiction writings convention.” Well, my son, being the well read young man that he is ceased the moment and enthusiastically told the guy “Oh, I’ve been reading all of Phillip K. Dick’s books, to which the swishy gay man replied, “no offense, and this may seem strange, but I don’t like Dick.”

(BWAAAAHAHAHAHA, true story, hearty laughter all around)

Enjoy yourselves, all you weenies in Atlanta. You aint hurting anyone and you’re enjoying life. It don’t get no better than that. I applaud your weeniedom.

LOS ANGELES - They're old and dirty, but NASA's Mars rovers are back in the exploration business after enduring a lengthy Red Planet dust bowl that blocked most of the sunlight they need for power.
With skies gradually brightening, the solar-powered rovers Spirit and Opportunity recently resumed driving and other operations that had been suspended during the dust storm.

Here’s a big tip of the straw hat to the many scientists, engineers and technicians at the Pasadena JPL who have kept these little jewels running for over three year. They were designed for and it was hoped that they would function for about three months. Now, three years later, they keep going, and going and going. Wow, these guys definitely have won the energizer bunny award of the century. Real life heros.
