Maybe global warming isn't all bad

more border insanity

Why should we enforce the borders? The old saw about people comming across to do work ordinary americans won't do doesn't cut it.

Especially when the job americans won't do is mass murder.

The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern U.S. border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States. The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border.
Well this is interesting.

IT'S not exactly Bob Hope on a USO tour, but gay porn star Michael Lucas says he's going to Israel with other male performers to entertain gay soldiers at a Tel Aviv club with live sex shows. "During times of war, outlets for sexual energy and expression are bleak," said Lucas, whose hard-core hits include "Fire Island Cruising" and "Hunt & Plunge." "I look forward to bringing gay men together, and I will work hard to put on the greatest show for them."

Such is the power of the Israeli lobby, that it can command the porn industry of America to support their troops. The gay ones at least.

Back

I've been gone for a few days. Let me get you up to speed

1. I just spent 5 days in a hospital with my brother. He is in a medically induced coma after a bad motorcycle accident. I don't know if or when he's waking up, really.

He and I are alike in alot of things, and mainly the part about not liking being told what to do. But there is a slight difference. I think rules are silly because they are just matter of doing what one should anyways. He was in Iowa, which has no helmet law. He made a bad decision and decided to skip the helmet. It's tragic. It's hard to watch. He's where he is in large part because of this.

So far, he has broken ribs, a hemothorax, fractured skull and clavicle. He has moderate damge to his right frontal lobe, but I lack the precice details on all of that. The result of the brain damage is that his left side is paralized, and he has a healthy amount of road rash. Through all this though, he has had incredible care. The hospital where he stays has taken him out of immediate danger, and his greatest threats are infection, and pneumonia.

My brother is only 34 years old, and I just don't know what lays before him, or the rest of the family. I'm not scared of much and this terrifies me.

He's a tough guy. He can handle a lot. I know this, I remember when we used to fight, it's something brothers do, he never really fought back. He had six years on me, and when I was going nuts, he probably could have shut me down no problem. He never did. Maybe its an odd way of protecting a brother, I don't know. I just know that even when things were hard, he looked after me in his own way.

2. Thank God for the people and state of Iowa. I've never met a kinder lot of people. In 1 week, more people have volunteered their kindness to a stranger than I could have ever imagined. I love where I live. I love the lifestyle and the vibrance, but they could never even come close to competing with the people in Iowa on the human aspect. I won't be able to go back to Iowa before my brother is out of the hospital, and I am not likely to return, but I will be eternally greatful.

If it weren't for them I would be eulogizing my brother.

I will never forget their help. I will never forget the people I've met along the way.

Lanny Davis needs another visit from the clue bat

The cliff notes version of an article by Lanny Davis:

I was raised to believe that the evil republicans are the only ones who hate and that is why growing up I hated them. But now I am surprised to discover that Democrats are capable of hate as well. Of course, this only applies to the Democrats who disagree with me, who I also hate. But, my part of the Democratic party is nothing but love and sweetness.
The cognitive dissonance required for this article is amazing.

Wield the awesome power of 8 hits a day in your campaign

I'm totally jumping on this bandwagon: Led by Uncle and XRLQ

Any organization* that wants to run a political ad criticizing any politician in that window can do so here. Not only will I run the ad free, I’ll do a post on the ad on the front page.


* The organization must pass the Rouge Sanity Test, i.e., no NAMBLA, Peta, or other weirdo extremists.

** It goes up as a single post, and stays up as a post. This is not a sidebar ad

*** this is not an endorsement of anybody or anything. If I get every libertarian who is running unopposed for the local dog catcher, that doesn't mean I'm for it. The ad will still go up just the same. BTW Libertarians, that bit is getting old.


**** This is a limited time offer, that may be retracted or altered at any time, at my sole discretion.

It's one thing after another. First the bar, now an emergency of a family nature. More posts when I get back I swear.

In the meantime, check out this collection of cats that look like Hitler.

(nb, this is a joke site, but there are assclowns in the comment section, not for the easily offended)

sci fi is better in 24 hour cycles

Daily kos says it all:

To me, it's insulting and rude to the real heroes of the Lamont effort -- win or lose -- who have done ALL the work. I didn't make a single phone call, I didn't walk a single precinct, I didn't lick any envelopes, or staffed an information booth at the local farmer's market.

I wrote about the race and suddenly people want to give this blog (and me) all sorts of credit/blame. Only the laziest of lazy reporters and pundits can lay this at the feet of me or any other blogger.



In other words, we expet to lose, or barely win. The future looks better tomorrow, only when you you don't know what tomorrow looks like, and just like Dean, Kos has put lipstick on another pig. Don't blame me for another loss, but I'll take a moderate share of the credit.


kos, you are a checkers man in a chess world. good luck to you with that.

More of that nuance I keep hearing about

Once again, let's see how much media exposure this story gets. Just like the Lieberman blackface, I see a free pass in somebody's future.

Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata Thursday discussed the difficult political climate surrounding illegal immigration and as an example said “You've got all these crackers ... down in San Diego.”

At a briefing with reporters, the Oakland Democrat was asked about the prospects of pending legislation to grant driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. Though a similar bill has passed the Legislature before – only to be vetoed – Perata said he was cautious about moving the current bill to the governor's desk in an election year.

“Immigration is a red meat issue,” he said. “You've got all these crackers down in Southern Cal – ah, where is it, San Diego, taking on the governor. Even the governor was shocked.”

Oh, and I'm well aware that within this blog, I have refferred to myself as a cracker. The distinction is simple, I'm not a politician shaping government policy dismissing an entire race of people's opinions. This guy has power to do more than expound upon a viewpoint, or make a movie, like the moron at the Huffpo who did a blackface image, or Gibson, and his burdens are greater. This guy should be losing his job.

Given the power of the California Dems, I find it unlikely.

Perspective

A man walks into a Jewish center

He announces he's pissed at Israel, that he is Muslim. Then he fires indescriminately into the crowd of people. 4 die.

It's hardly able to survive the news cycle, and he is simply treated as a mentally ill person.

Story two:

A man gets pulled over for drunk driving.

He says some really stupid anti semetic stuff. Nobody dies, nobody is even injured.

The MSM can't get enough of it, headshots, apologies, and varying degrees of rejection/acceptance of appologies gets bandied about by various jewish groups.


This is retarded. Mel Gibson did something that makes him a jerk, or maybe an asshole, I'm not gonna parse words on that one. But everybody is going after the low hanging fruit. We have citizens in this country willing to kill other citizens because they are Jewish, and everybody is giving them a pass.

Until the Wiesenthal center, Drudge and whoever else can start to muster a bit of interest in real issues, they can kiss my left nut. Stuff like this is an embarrasment to everybody, but at least Mel had an excuse, he was drunk.

Tomorrow, he'll be sober, and the folks complaining will still be assholes.

Billy's Baloon



It's been a long time since I saw this and thought I'd share the love.
