Happy New Year


Tonight we're celebrating the passage of time with family and friends.
I make no resolutions. Whatever happens, happens.


God bless each and every one of you out there.
Trust in God, trust in His mercy and goodness.

Whatever else we think is going on, He has perfect control.
Just snug up your seatbealts in case He has to hit the brakes hard.

Oh, and whatever you do, don't ask Him, "Are we there yet?"

She's Gone


We drove to Rochester International Airport this morning so our daughter could catch a flight to Minnesota to visit one of her Army pals for a few days before returning to Monterey. I can't believe how fast the time went; it seems like she just got here yesterday. We got about five inches of snow last night but the Thruway was clear. The State crews did a wonderful job of cleaning the snow and ice from the road. It was 9 degrees when we left the house.

The Rochester TSA people were very helpful. As soon as they spotted her in uniform, they grabbed us all and escorted us through the security waiting line. We were first x-rayed and sniffed and then drinking coffee in the secure area in no time. The TSA people thanked our daughter for her service as she went through the screening. I have never had a problem with any TSA personnel. They have always been unfailingly polite, courteous and helpful; this was no different.

I hate long, clingy goodbyes, but she was the last one to get on the plane. She waited until the very last possible moment and then some - the attendants didn't say a word while she hugged us all for the last time. We are not sure when we'll see her again. Momma and our youngest were all teary walking away from the gate. Not me. But I lie.

In any event, she's got three more months of training before she graduates from DLI, then another three months at Goodfellow AFB. After that, who knows... We're hoping that she doesn't get sent to Afghanistan next year as Arabic is not amoung the many languages spoken there, but she has a friend who graduated from DLI as an arab translator earlier this year and is in Afghanistan right now - assigned to a motor pool; changing oil. Oh well...

We are hoping that she is assigned to the 10th Mountain Division as Fort Drum is only about 70 miles north of us. But until she is all through with her training and finally assigned to a unit we'll just have to wait. She is in God's hands and that is never a bad place to be.

Borrowed this photoshop pic from Another Black Conservative:


This is Janet Bozo Napolitano, Special Clown In Charge of Homeland Security. After the Nigerian dickhead, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, burnt his balls off on Northwest Flight 253, Napolitano goes on television and states that the massive, intrusive security system she heads worked as planned.

Yep, the jihadist is allowed to enter the plane without a passport carrying PETN months after his father calls the US Embassy warning them that his son may be dangerous due to his radical Muslim beliefs. The kid had renewable US visas that were not revoked even though he was denied permission to re-enter the UK. But our people at DHS were too busy shoving their thumbs up their asses to see what was going on with this kid.

So, the very next day after lying to the American public:

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has changed her tune from an earlier comment over the weekend where she said she said that the thwarting of the Nigerian hijacker means “the system worked.” At that time, Napolitano specifically referred to the actions of the passengers as part of “the whole process.”

In this second interview, Napolitano said that her words were “taken out of context.” She now says that her comments were about how the system operated after the hijacker was apprehended. That is not what she said earlier and the above link will take you to a video of those words. Napolitano now agrees that the system “failed miserably.”

Thankfully, passenger action averted a disaster. When that happens that means that the system did not work. It also means that whenever you fly, then you have enlisted in the war against terror because you may be needed the next time the system fails.

And with shitheads like this running the show we wonder why the federal government is all screwed up. This is the same incompetent jackass who declared that veterans are a security risk and then had to apologize.

And Congress wonders why we don't want the feds to put their stinking, incompetent claws on our healthcare. We'd all be better off if the feds enforced the 2nd Amendment by making everyone carry a gun.

Police Academy

About six or seven years ago I received an offer to train police officers in one of four locations: East Timor, Bosnia, Iraq or Afghanistan. The company, a contractor for the DoD, offered $120,000 a year for this service. As I treasure my testicles, I knew better than to pass this by my wife so I never responded to the offer.

The following video shows what training Iraqi cops can do for your patience and communications skills:



'Nuf said. This soldier is trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Gangsta Fashion Hints

Bustin' caps and sellin' crack is a demanding occupation that requires highly specialized apparel for the active gangsta lifestyle as this gangbanger found out. From the UK Telegraph:

Here's a story to round off the year: a murderous New York gangster tripped over his own baggy trousers last week and fell to his death. Hector Quinones, 44, was in the middle of an apparently drugs-related killing spree when his low-slung trousers fell down and tripped him up. One of his would-be victims fled on to the fire escape of her apartment block; Quinones yanked up his trousers and struggled after her, but no sooner had he reached the fire escape than they fell down again, and he toppled overboard.

One would not, of course, wish such an undignified death upon anyone – not even someone as nasty as Quinones appears to have been. Yet there is a certain satisfaction in seeing the most ludicrous craze in men's fashion since petticoat breeches so graphically exposed.

Sure one could. He gots the fever, and there's only one prescription, more droopy, saggy ass pants. Fire escape not included.

UPDATE: Hector Quinones is really a nasty piece of work. Read about his righteous self-inflicted demise in this NY Post article.

UPDATE:
I just remembered another instance where some goblin trying to elude the police manged to get himself killed. The incident was written up in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on 16 Feb 03. The goblin bailed out of his car when stopped by police. You can view the grisly results here.

There's Much To Be Thankful For

The wife and I are off until next week. Soldier girl leaves next Tuesday so we are packing in as much family time as we can. Last night we had an excellent family dinner at our favorite restaurant, Saucy Swan, in Manlius. We were celebrating Danielle's (AKA Soldier Gurl) home visit, Jess's (AKA Goob) graduation with an Associate Degree in Business , Beca's (AKA Boof) acceptance into college (Baptist Bible College in Clark's Summit, PA); Jess's boyfriend, Wayne (AKA Wayne Wayne Go Away but that'll change once we think of something nastier) just got his second BA (Journalism? English? or something) and our oldest, Amy, the Dominatrix (the first born - heh), her pregnancy - very poignant as she had miscarried last Spring. She is 39 so we are all watching the newest grandchild very closely.

The meal was absolutely superb. Two veal marcella's (mumsie and Jess), two fillet mignon (Soldier Gurl and I), shrimp scampi (Beca) and NYS strip steak (2 BA Guy)being the choices. Afterwards we took in a late show - saw the non-3D version of "Avatar." Simply awesome, incredible CG effects but it definitely is a message movie - I renamed it "I Buried My Blue Striped Ass At Wounded Tree;" but we all enjoyed the flick very much.

I am trying a faith approach to anger management. I am getting so pissed off at what is happening to my County, my Culture and my Congress - it is wearing on me, tearing me down a little each day as new outrages seem to erupt like acne on a thirteen year old. I feel like I am under a constant state of seige. And this is probably what the socialists want.

We have so much to be thankful for. But that has been true for so many centuries. We can carp and moan about what is happening to our beloved Country, but that is our fault. We did not place enough value on the things that made this Country what is it. Instead, we focused on the bounty of our labors, forgetting the God who blessed those labors, who through a 1700 year process first created and then placed us in a novel social experiment called the United States of America.

This article from the WSJ this morning set my sights on the true target. I was bull gazing for too long.

When Saul of Tarsus set out on his journey to Damascus the whole of the known world lay in bondage. There was one state, and it was Rome. There was one master for it all, and he was Tiberius Caesar.

Everywhere there was civil order, for the arm of the Roman law was long. Everywhere there was stability, in government and in society, for the centurions saw that it was so.

For Congress saw that it was so. But while Congress proposes, God disposes.

There was the persecution of men who dared think differently, who heard strange voices or read strange manuscripts. There was enslavement of men whose tribes came not from Rome, disdain for those who did not have the familiar visage. And most of all, there was everywhere a contempt for human life. What, to the strong, was one man more or less in a crowded world?

First the unborn, now the infirm and soon the elderly. The progression of tyranny has been reflected for millennia. Christians and Jews are despised, distrusted and dispossessed.

Then, of a sudden, there was a light in the world, and a man from Justify FullGalilee saying, Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's and unto God the things that are God's.

We march to the beat of a different drummer; that's the way it's supposed to be for we do not belong to the world - we are God's. The beat is not heard by the world nor can it be heard; it is based on faith and they do not understand it. To paraphrase 1 Cor 1:18, the preaching of the gospel is foolishness to those who who are condemned to perdition. Don't despair at what the MSM and college professors and other so called enlightened elite parrot, they cannot help themselves nor do they want help.

So the light came into the world and the men who lived in darkness were afraid, and they tried to lower a curtain so that man would still believe salvation lay with the leaders.

But it came to pass for a while in divers places that the truth did set man free, although the men of darkness were offended and they tried to put out the light. The voice said, Haste ye. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness come upon you, for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.

Christ is our Light. Light brings all things into true perspective. In its harsh glare nothing is hidden, nothing can be concealed.
We see where Pelosi and Reid and Obama are driving us (these tyrants do not lead, they impel, they force, they impose their will) as we cry out against it. The liberals march lemming-like to the precipice and want us to join them as they rush headlong off a cliff into slavery; much of the Country is finally waking up and seeing where the parade of insanity is going.
So pray for Light. Pray for the clarity of thought that is a gift from God. Like early Christians who lived under leaders far, far worse than ours, refuse to go where the socialists demand. It will cost us - it always has - but our Drummer has already paid the price.

Then might it come to pass that darkness would settle again over the lands and there would be a burning of books and men would think only of what they should eat and what they should wear, and would give heed only to new Caesars and to false prophets. Then might it come to pass that men would not look upward to see even a winter's star in the East, and once more, there would be no light at all in the darkness.

And so Paul, the apostle of the Son of Man, spoke to his brethren, the Galatians, the words he would have us remember afterward in each of the years of his Lord:

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." {Gal. 5:1 ~sig94}

She's Home


Took her off the plane last night.
Her combat boots are parked by the garage door.
She's home for Xmas!

Same Circus, Different Clowns

In a new book, "The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr," scheduled for release in February 2010, the author,Ken Gormley, presents proof that federal prosecutors were preparing to indict Bill and Hillary Clinton for their roles in the Lewinski sex-for-dry-cleaning and the Whitewater scandals.

The Associated Press on Friday obtained a copy of the book by Gormley, a Duquesne University law professor, about the scandals that enveloped the final years of the former president's second term. Excerpts from the book were first reported Thursday on the Politico news Web site.

Calls seeking comment from now-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and the former president's foundation weren't immediately returned Friday.

Great, this is like my father telling me on his death bed that he had thought about mortgaging the house to buy me a Shelby GT for my 16th birthday. Like, why bother? Life is full of disappointments already, why dig up ones that are are over a decade old?

After Starr left office, his successor, Robert Ray, sent a message to the ex-president that he was prepared to prosecute Bill Clinton. The books says Ray "took steps to instill the fear of God in the White House."

"I wanted them to know I was coming," Ray said. "I was fully of the view that if I was not prepared to carry out the threat, it wasn't worth making."

I really don't like to use vulgar language to make a point. It indicates a coarseness of spirit and a lack of appreciation for more refined vehicles that eloquently transmit the range and richness of human emotion through the printed word. But sometimes, ya just gotta let 'er rip...

Mr. Robert Ray, you play with your prick.
"I wanted them to know I was coming,"
In your sock you stupid, useless sonofabitch.

"I was fully of the view that if I was not prepared to carry out the threat, it wasn't worth making."

It wasn't. Nothing happened. The lying bitch is now SecState and her felon husband is raking in millions while still lying out his ass.

This is just another tome full of self-serving bullshit from people who lacked the balls to do something when it really mattered but now want everyone to know they were in the game.

Ray is a federal Terry Malloy, a law enforcement celebrity wanna be.
Ray is really whining "I coulda been a contender! I coulda been somebody!"

Nobody cares asshole.
You were in the paint and you choked at the buzzer.

In a deal with prosecutors on his last full day as president, Clinton acknowledged that he gave false testimony in the Lewinsky scandal, heading off the threat of indictment. As part of the deal, the president said he gave false answers in a January 1998 deposition, but he insisted he didn't do so knowingly, an important element of the crime of perjury.

That wasn't a deal!
That was a gift!
Why didn't you take the shot?
Why piss me off like this just before Christmas !

We all know that in fifteen years we'll be hearing the exact same thing from federal prosecutors regarding their investigations of Obongo and Michelle the Wonder Wookie and all the rest of the Clowns in Congress.

Same stinking, corrupt federal circus where you pay and pay and pay to have them guess your weight and they sit their greedy asses on your face instead. And more Terry Malloys telling us that they had them in their sights but couldn't squeeze one off.

Domestic Reports

From the blog Curmudgeonly & Skeptical who links to a Washington Post story.

A pair of British newly weds recently had their bed bugged by the groom's best man. A pressure sensative device with remote dial out capabilities was placed under their mattress whilst they were on their honeymoon. Now whenever they go to bed or trip the light fantastic, the device wakes up, records the time, date, duration, pressure intensity and "frenzy index" of their lovemaking, then posts the data to a Twitter account - newlywedsontjob. The "live" updates started on 11 Dec 09. To make sense of it, the time of the activity is measured from "They're on the job!" to when the device signals "They're off the job!"

Here are some of the readings:

They’re off the job! #4 – Action concluded at 19.29GMT. Duration: 15 m.55 s. Frenzy Index: 6 (Snow Patrol). Judge’s Comment: "Cld do better"
from Power Twitter
They’re on the job! #4 - Action commenced at 19.14GMT. Weight: 151KG.
from Power Twitter

They’re off the job! #3 – Action concluded at 15.28GMT. Duration: 15 m.31 s. Frenzy Index: 9 (thrash metal). Judge’s Comment: "KAPOW!"
from Power Twitter
They’re on the job! #3 - Action commenced at 15.13GMT. Weight: 151KG.
from Power Twitter

They’re off the job! #2 – Action concluded at 16.12GMT. Duration: 22 m.05 s. Frenzy Index: 4 (easy listening). Judge’s Comment: "Good work!"
from Power Twitter
They’re on the job! #2 - Action commenced at 15.50GMT. Weight: 151KG.
from Power Twitter

The best man stated that he us doing this because:

he stitched me up something rotten when he was my best man so I reckon this is reasonable payback.

From the article we are led to assume that this couple resides in England. Look at the times (GMT is Greenwich Mean Time) generated by the pressure monitioring device. Either the system clock was not set properly by the perpetrator or someone is working nights.

Future Democratic Senator From Massachusetts

In the wee hours of the morning, a four year old Tennessee boy runs away from home, steals beer from a neighbor's cooler, breaks into another neighbor's house and steals five Christmas presents, one of which is a little girl's dress.

When the police are called, the kid is drinking the beer and wearing the dress.

Ted Kennedy's replacement is in training.
He'll fit right in at Harvard.

Time For Action

Over to the Rott there is this dire warning posted by D.J. Allen. Please give it a read and a thought to leaving a message for one of our Senators. The link for this is on the bottom.

This is important. Health care reform control is being shoved down our throats. We have to go down screaming and yelling on this one.

Okay, it is down to one last Senator. The entire Republican Caucus is already a “NO!” vote. The only remaining hold out is Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska. He is holding holding out his vote to end debate and bring this steamy, stinkin’ pile of excrement to a vote in the Senate. If this thing passes, it will go over to the house and get rubber-stamped by a simple vote and sent up to the president for his signature. There won’t be a conference because they are too focused on passing something — anything — that they would legalize armed robbery just to say they passed a “health care reform bill”.

Now get your smelling salts handy, because I know you think I am asking you to contact Ben Nelson and beg him to vote to end debate.

BZZZZZT!

Nooope. I am asking you to contact his office RIGHT NOW and beg him to stand strong and NOT vote to end discussion.

(Do you need to read it again slowly so that you are SURE of what this “Left-Wing Socialist/Communist” is asking you to do?

In bold letters:
Call, email, write Ben Nelson and tell him to vote NO on ending debate.
See? You read it correctly. I said it just that way.

I am not the only Liberal/Progressive Democrat wanting this monstrosity to fail. I probably have a vastly different reason than most of you for wanting it to fail, but the point is, there are some certain times when both the Left AND the Right can actually get together and agree to oppose something — even if it is for different reasons.

This is one of those times.
I am all for health care reform. I am even for Single Payer much like what I enjoy up here in Canada right now. I know it could never happen in the US, so I would be quite happy with opening up Medicare to everyone and charging a sliding scale. But that would be for a different discussion — not THIS discussion. The point here is to make sure that the CURRENT Senate bill does not become law.

My reasons are fairly simple: It is nothing more than a shakedown of the American people and a gift to the insurance companies. The only thing it does is makes it a law for you to purchase health insurance from a private insurance company. There are no price controls — if they want to charge a single person $1500 per month for a “pre-existing” condition (which could include acne as a child) they can.

All of the back and forth over the past several months about “Public Options”, and all that rot, was just a smoke screen. The current bill is the exact deal that the Obama Administration negotiated in secret with the drug companies and insurance companies back in August.

I know most of you can’t stand Glenn Greenwald, but maybe this time you should read HIS take on this. Liberals and Progressives are furious — at least those who are starting to realize what has been going on.

I know none of YOU want this bill to pass. Very few of us on the Left want it to pass in this form also. We need to get together and make sure it doesn’t.

So contact Ben Nelson. TELL him that you want him to stand strong and NOT vote to bring this thing to a vote.

Click to Contact Ben Nelson

Hey, Al Gore --- Incoming!

From wattsupwiththat.com we learn that the US Department of Energy has issued a "litigation hold notice" to 8,000 DOE employees targeting any contact with the Climate Research Unit at ClimateGate ground zero - the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia:

DOE Litigation Hold Notice
DOE-SR has received a “Litigation Hold Notice” from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) General Council and the DOE Office of Inspector General regarding the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. Accordingly, they are requesting that SRNS, SRR and other Site contractors locate and preserve all documents, records, data, correspondence, notes, and other materials, whether official or unofficial, original or duplicative, drafts or final versions, partial or complete that may relate to the global warming, including, but not limited to, the contract files, any related correspondence files, and any records, including emails or other correspondence, notes, documents, or other material related to this contract, regardless of its location or medium on which it is stored. In other words,
please preserve any and all documents relevant to “global warming, the Climate Research Unit at he University of East Anglia In England, and/or climate change science.”

DOE-SR is the Department of Energy facility at Savannah River. Apparently the DOE has an enormous number of grants with various research organizations and the intergovernmental CYA is beginning. I am not sure if this notice means that it's the beginning of the end for Al Gore and his Global Ponzi Scheme but it sure sounds like good news. In any event, the comment section of the post has this following entry:

Jochen Vederer (22:03:54) :

As an attorney who deals with electronic data cases on a regular basis, I have a few thoughts on this letter.

This letter does not necessarily mean that litigation has commenced. As an attorney, I send “preservation letters” all the time before litigation. Essentially, a preservation letter states that the recipient must retain and preserve the specified evidence, i.e., they cannot delete or otherwise destroy such evidence. After sending a preservation letter, we often use computer forensic experts to create back-up images of all drives and media that may contain electronic data relevant to the matter at hand. Likewise, after a client receives such a letter I recommend that they make their own backups.

[...]Regarding the preservation letter mentioned above, I have two thoughts as to its purpose. First, an interested party may have sent a preservation letter to the DOE. Second, the DOE has most certainly reviewed the CRU matter and may know even more about it than is in the public domain. Thus—realizing that the climate-change game may be up soon—the DOE may be taking proactive steps to salvage its reputation when the house of cards comes down. Perhaps the DOE realizes that it may at some point be shown to be complicit in the biggest scandal in modern times. In such a case, the DOE can then say: “Hey look, we were duped too, and as soon as we realized it we began a campaign to ferret out all the miscreants involved.” In any event, this letter is actually more interesting if no preservation letter has been received by the DOE as this would suggest that it may intend to go after grant recipients who were cooking the books! This situation, of course, will probably only come about once the mainstream media picks up the story and scientists and research centers/universities (grant recipients) are shown to have falsified and/or improperly manipulated data, etc. If they did it in concert with others, there may even be conspiracy and racketeering charges.

Finally, the DOE may just be doing this as a defensive tactic so that climate skeptics cannot later state that evidence was destroyed, i.e., there would be a presumption that global warming is bunk science because of the spoliation of evidence.

Interesting observation, no? And this is a fascinating email available at JunkScience . This site maintains that the emails and other data weren't hacked from the CRU server. Instead, it
  • is a file assembled by CRU staff in preparation for complying with a freedom of information request. Whether it was carelessly left in a publicly accessible portion of the CRU computer system or was "leaked" by staff believing the FOIA request was improperly rejected may never be known but is not really that important. What is important is that:
  • There was no "security breach" at CRU that "stole" these files
  • The files appear genuine and to have been prepared by CRU staff, not edited by malicious hackers
  • The information was accidentally or deliberately released by CRU staff
  • Selection criteria appears to be compliance with an or several FOIA request(s)
Curiouser and curiouser...

There Must Be 100 Ways To Leave Your Lover

Liberals love AGW like a cat loves its litter box. Liberals crawl into AGW and shit all over everyone who disagrees with them, then crawl back out with a smug, self-righteous sensation that comes only after you have not been forced to defend an untenable position. As long as the MSM refuses to examine the issue, the world is their litterbox.

And what is really going on? Scientist Peter Taylor states that global cooling is the real problem.

The real science points to the sun’s magnetic cycle as the key driver by unknown mechanisms. Right now, Nasa is throwing its hands up and saying ‘we’ve never seen anything like it and can’t tell what it is going to do next’.

Many scientists expect a repeat of the Maunder Minimum of the 17th century when the Thames froze every winter – and famine spread through Europe and China.

[...]Business as usual is not an option since cooling actually does put humanity at risk. The apocalyptic scaremongering has made us weary and casual about such threats but we need to act if we are to maintain our humanity.

The Daily Express lists 100 reasons why climate change is a naturally occurring phenomena. There are probably more but can rest assurd that these reasons will never receive a moments attention from the media or politicians. And why not? Simple, AGW is the biggest Ponzi scheme in the history of mankind.

Here are some of the 100 reasons listed in the Express:

1) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.

2) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.

3) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

4) After World War II, there was a huge surge in recorded CO2 emissions but global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.

5) Throughout the Earth’s history, temperatures have often been warmer than now and CO2 levels have often been higher – more than ten times as high.

6) Significant changes in climate have continually occurred throughout geologic time.

7) The 0.7C increase in the average global temperature over the last hundred years is entirely consistent with well-established, long-term, natural climate trends.

9) Leaked e-mails from British climate scientists – in a scandal known as “Climate-gate” - suggest that that has been manipulated to exaggerate global warming.

10) A large body of scientific research suggests that the sun is responsible for the greater share of climate change during the past hundred years.

12) Philip Stott, Emeritus Professor of Biogeography at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London says climate change is too complicated to be caused by just one factor, whether CO2 or clouds.

13) Peter Lilley MP said last month that “fewer people in Britain than in any other country believe in the importance of global warming. That is despite the fact that our Government and our political class—predominantly—are more committed to it than their counterparts in any other country in the world”.

15) Professor Plimer, Professor of Geology and Earth Sciences at the University of Adelaide, stated that the idea of taking a single trace gas in the atmosphere, accusing it and finding it guilty of total responsibility for climate change, is an “absurdity” .

16) A Harvard University astrophysicist and geophysicist, Willie Soon, said he is “embarrassed and puzzled” by the shallow science in papers that support the proposition that the earth faces a climate crisis caused by global warming.

17) The science of what determines the earth’s temperature is in fact far from settled or understood.

18) Despite activist concerns over CO2 levels, CO2 is a minor greenhouse gas, unlike water vapour which is tied to climate concerns, and which we can’t even pretend to control.

19) A petition by scientists trying to tell the world that the political and media portrayal of global warming is false was put forward in the Heidelberg Appeal in 1992. Today, more than 4,000 signatories, including 72 Nobel Prize winners, from 106 countries have signed it.

Words Fail Me

Idiots. People are losing their jobs all over the county and these pampered, spoiled fools pull this crap.

The city of Oakland is expected to pay $1.75 million in legal fees and will offer vacation time and money to police officers who claimed in a lawsuit that they had been underpaid for working extra hours and for the time they spent putting on their uniforms, attorneys said Thursday.

Under a tentative agreement reached this week, the city will cover the plaintiffs' legal fees and costs. More than 500 current officers will receive an average of 130 vacation hours each, and about 60 retired officers each will be paid $3,500, said Rocky Lucia, an attorney for the officers.

The agreement draws to a close a three-year legal fight that began with a 2006 federal lawsuit filed by Officer Bob Valladon, former president of the Oakland Police Officers Association, over the issue of "donning and doffing," in which officers said they weren't being paid for the time they spent putting on and taking off their uniforms.

As far as I am concerned you also shouldn't be compensated for the time you spend filling out unemployment applications after they fire your ass.

The More I Hear About Tiger Woods

The more I hear about Mr. Woods, the more I think, WTF? What is wrong with this man boy? Why go through the trouble of marrying some little blonde Swedish girl, cart her ass all the way across the Atlantic Ocean and knock her up twice - just to keep a bizarre bevy of skanks, porn stars and waitresses on the side? Come on.

Mt. St. Tiger's bimbo eruption rivals Krakatoa and it ain't over yet. Buckets of loose women are falling from the skies screaming "Tiger screwed me too!" before crashing into the nearest tabloid's lap. When Krakatoa blew up, most of the island disappeared hundreds of meters under the sea, over 700 meters of the island turned into supersonic dust and ash - yep, that sounds about right for this idiot's reputation.

And that deal about the porn stars.... If anything they are one step lower than a prostitute and I used to lock them up pretty regularly. He would mess with these girls who do dick for a living and then go home and sleep with his wife? Makes no sense. It's like dipping your tool into an open cesspool and hoping that you come up clean and shiny bright. Idiot - to bring that nonsense into your own home.

At first I thought "youthful indiscretion" with an attractive lady but no more. This kid needs to have his ass handed to him after someone boots it off the tee into the rough.

Tool Dictionary

My brother is a mechanic/machinist and as such, is privy to the secret definitions of tools as they apply to real work situations. He sent me these, enjoy:

Some of these tool definitions are familiar to me, though I have not used them all, yet. They should also have include circle cutters and electric hand drills as devices used to hurt my hands.

· DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your drink across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

· WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh shucks?'

· SKILL SAW: A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.

· PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.

· BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch- up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

· HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It
transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you
attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future be comes.

· VISE-GRIPS: Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

· OXYACETYLENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting on fire various flammable objects in your shop. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race.

· TABLE SAW: A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity.

· HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

· BAND SAW: A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.

· TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST: A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.

· PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.

· STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER: A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms.

· PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

· HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.

· UTILITY KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard car tons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.

· Son Of A Gun TOOL: Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'Son of a gun' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.

Make It A '67 GTO

At Townhall, Doug Giles has put together a hilarious, and true, take on the recent email revelations trashing the AGW movement. He put together a list of what he intends to do in celebration of the death of global warming:

1. I am going to go outside by my pool and spray two full 32oz cans of Aqua Net right at the ozone.
2. I am going to use a gas powered scooter to go from room to room in my house, which will have all the outside doors open wide while the A/C is blowing full blast.
3. I am going to buy a ‘69 GTO with no exhaust system and let it idle for 4 hours a day in my driveway every day until Jesus returns.
4. I am going to fart as much as possible.
5. Speaking of farting, I am going to feed my cows bean dip and only bean dip.
6. I am going to set my thermostat on 85 in the winter and 55 in the summer.
7. I am going to use all my curly cue fluorescent light bulbs for clay pigeons—and not clean up the mess.
8. I am going to air up my tires on my ‘69 Goat so much that it looks like a frickin’ Macy’s Parade float.
9. When I go grizzly bear hunting in Alaska this spring I am going to add a polar bear to my license and take one of those as well.
10. While in Alaska I will take a blowtorch to a glacier to get my drinking water.
11. In addition, I am going to throw snowballs at seals. It won’t hurt them, but they will understand that the game is back on.
12. And finally, I am going to make certain my girls have Horner’s book Red Hot Lies and Milloy’s book Green Hell so that when their profs and goofy friends open their mouths on behalf global warming they can go Stone Cold Steve Austin on them with the cold, hard facts.

I would make a single change. Make that a 1967 GTO as the '68 models had the new federally mandated PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) valves installed on the valve covers. Prior to that, crankcases ventilated directly into the engine compartment.

Whatever

Al Gore has suddenly cancelled his appearance in Copenhagen before 3,000 climate freaks.

The group says Gore canceled the lecture Thursday, citing unforeseen changes in his schedule.

The unforeseen change to his schedule was a panicky visit to his proctologist to armorplate his ass before someone tries to shove a subpeona up it.

Seriously, the major climatey event of the year and Sir Al decides at the last minute that he can't deliver a speech before several thousand swooning afficionados and have them pay $1,200 a pop to kiss his sweaty paw? And we're supposed to believe that the East Anglia University email bombshells have nothing to do with this?

Yeah, right, whatever.

He Says It Rather Well

This guy is on the Canadian Broadcasting System.

Sorta like the Brits BBC tele but they don't speak as purty.

As they say, the leaked emails are going uber-viral and the MSM is still ignoring the story

Shake, Shake Yer Green Thang

Copenhagen prostitutes were offended by a mass mailing from the Mayor to area hotels warning them not to arrange for Climate Summit guests to procure certain "services."


Copenhagen Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards to city hotels warning summit guests not to patronize Danish sex workers during the upcoming conference. Now, the prostitutes have struck back, offering free sex to anyone who produces one of the warnings.

This has stimulated a new underground industry dedicated to selling authentic looking reproductions of Bjerregaard's postcards. Called "Ritt's Hits" these postcards are selling like hotcakes.

With the right kind of ad campaign, all kinds of mottos spring to mind.

"I Screw for CO2"
"Try Doing THIS To A Polar Bear!"
"I Wanna See Your Hockey Stick"
"Al Gore Went To Copenhagen And All I Got Was The Clap"
"Carbon Credits Or Me?"
"Global Temperatures Won't Go Down Like I Do!"
Now I do not condone protitution for any reason but I am somewhat confused why the Mayor would specifically target a legitimate business within the City as prostitution is legal in Denmark. You can even look up places to find whores in Copenhagen on the internet. And what's with the warning, "Be sustainable - don't buy sex." What does that mean? Let's face it, they ain't buying, just renting.

Does the mild exercise and heavy breathing lead to the production of more carbon dioxide? How many hookers dies it take to equal the carbon output of a Grumman Gulfstream private jet? Will this mean that Climate Summit attendees' balls will turn blue unless the hookers turn green?

As Obongo has already used federal funds to support union thugs and community organizers, I am surprised that he has not seen fit to use stimulus funding to support prostitutes; after all, the difference between SIEU thugs, ACORN activists and whores is a matter of who they are being paid to screw. In the end, it's the taxpayers anyway you look at it.

RIH
Rot In Hell

The murderer of four Lakewood police officers has been killed by police.

Huckabee, you're toast. You pardoned this animal and other Arkansas animals, one of whom then raped and killed a woman in Missouri.

In fact, an Arkansas Leader study indicated that Huckabee helped free more prisoners from 1996 through 2004 than were freed in the six neighboring states - Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas - combined.

I would like to see how many more of these animals he pardoned have re-offended. Let's get a true picture of the mayhem visited upon innocnet, law-abiding taxpayer by this Arkansas excretion ex-governor.

Covering Their Lying Asses

They've all but admitted it now, they're nothing but a sack of lying assholes. The scientists have destroyed the original data used to predict global warming. Nothing is left except the data they have gratuitously altered.

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.

The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected.

The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.

As one commenter from the Telegraph stated:

Let me get this right. We have Leonardo's and Tycho Brahe's notebooks from the sixteenth century, Newton's notebooks from the seventeenth, and we have Darwin's notebooks from the nineteenth century, but CRU threw away all their climate data, already on magnetic tape, because it was "taking up too much room"?

And we are supposed to believe this is innocent?

Arrest them, arrest every single one of these so called scientists.
Cut off their hands so they cannot conduct even simple math on a calculator, the little stupid ones you get for free when you subscribe to a magazine.

I went out the day before and the day after Thanksgiving and saw neither hide nor hair of Bambi. I took this picture to remind me of how much fun it is to squat in a cold, damp forest with nothing to do except wait.
Decked out in a brilliant orange "Don't Shoot Me" vest I might as well have been a deer crossing guard.
I'll go out again this week.

NEW KFC DINNER

We all remember the "Hillary Meal" ---
Small breasts and big thighs.

Now, KFC has announced an addition to their chicken dinners.

It's called the Obama Cabinet Bucket ---
It consists of nothing but left wings and assholes.


H/T to Charlies the ChiTown Cop

And She's Gone


Phone cameras --- pheh.

But thank the Lord she'll be back for Christmas. But after next Spring - we have no idea where the Army will send her. She trains at Goodfellow AFB for two months or so when she graduates from DLI. Then she gets deployed. We're hoping she gets attached to the 10th Mountain Division in Watertown as their base at Fort Drum is only a little more than an hour's drive from here.

We had an absolutely great Thanksgiving. We had the whole family over last night - it was a scream. All my daughters have a deliciously absurd, wicked, merciless sense of humor. I am a frequent target.

Our Soldier Is Home

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!



This is the scene at the airport this morning. You can't even see my youngest daughter, she is behind them - all you can see is the cast on her hand. No one slept last night.

We have her until Sunday.

I have a new definition that should be included in all discussions of geometric measurement:

The shortest span in the known universe is the distance between my daughters.

Too Close To Home

A Syracuse prostitution ring was broken by the Sheriff's Office over the week end. A married couple and four "working girls" were arrested on prostitution and drug charges.

Six individuals have been arrested on prostitution-related charges in the City of Syracuse. Onondaga County Sheriffs say that the arrests came after a yearlong investigation the business known as the New York Body Rub.

Detectives concluded their investigation by serving search warrants at four locations, arresting the six individuals and recovering business records and a small amount of drugs.

[...] Solvay is the home of business owners Kathy and Robert Slade. Both were arrested on charges of promoting prostitution, and permitting prostitution. Detectives found a small amount of marijuana and business records in the home. Kathy Slade was also charged with prostitution.

All the employees of the business, Lori A. Williams, 31, Jennifer Hamel, 35, Wendy Roberts, 34, and Kimberly Barch, 29, were also charged with prostitution and issued appearance tickets. Lori Williams was additionally charged with Criminal Possession of Controlled Substance.

What is weird about this is that the Slades live in my neighborhood, just up the street a bit. I have never met them but they have two children, a girl who graduated from high school last year and a boy who is a junior. My youngest daughter is a senior; she knows the boy a little and this has hit the poor kid real hard. You can imagine what the other kids are saying to him at school. It ain't pretty. It's the kids who really pay for this nonsense. My heart goes out for them.

Admiral Dip Shit

Our country is run and overrun with jackasses and idiots. It's making me nuts.

First, jackasses in the US military have decided to prosecute three Navy Seal members who captured a dangerous terrorist. Why have they decided to go after these heroes? Glad you asked; it's because they gave the murderous son of a bitch a fat lip.


Navy SEALs have secretly captured one of the most wanted terrorists in Iraq — the alleged mastermind of the murder and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards in Fallujah in 2004. And three of the SEALs who captured him are now facing criminal charges, sources told FoxNews.com.

The three, all members of the Navy's elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral's mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.

Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.

The "mast" from the US Navy website:

Mast is an administrative proceeding where a senior officer in the chain of command can impose non-judicial punishment (NJP) for disciplinary offenses that do not rise to the level of a courts-martial. It is also referred to as Captain's or Admiral's Mast depending upon the rank of the individual leading the proceeding.

Authority to impose non-judicial punishment is granted under Article 15 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and is used by all the services. The Marine Corps refers to the proceeding as "office hours" while the Army and Air Force refers to it as an "Article 15." The UCMJ is contained in Chapter 47 of Title 10 of the United States Federal Code (Federal Law).

Additionally, there are also instances where sailors can recognized by a commanding officer for outstanding performance at mast. Such a proceeding is called a "meritorious mast."

Really, I would love to know the name of the dip shit naval officer who put the pen to these guys for smacking a terrorist. And I have a funny suspicion that maybe this dip shit's "affiliation" or the affiliation of someone he is dicking may have something to do with these screwy assault charges. In any event, the Seals proved once again that they have Cojones O'Steel by demanding a full courts martial. If you're gonna smear our reputations Admiral Dip Shit, have the courtesy to do so in public, Sir! I just hope it all works out for these brave lads.

And I might as well react to a story in the NY Post about more jackasses and indiots in the US Senate. If you think about it, where else would you find them?

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Rep. Carolyn McCarthy are introducing a bill to crack down on illegal gun trafficking.

They said Tuesday the bill would make it a crime to traffic in firearms and would also go after middlemen who buy a gun for someone else so that person can evade background checks.

The bill would provide funding for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to hire 1,500 agents and investigators.

Gillibrand said the measures outlined in the bill would cost $370 million over five years.

You have to pry this one open to see where they are going because there are scads and oodles of laws already on the books that prohibit illegal gun trafficking. NY State and federal statutes are already used to prosecute illegal sales of firearms. So maybe we look for new legislation aimed at regulating gun show transactions or that increase penalties for straw purchases. Straw purchases occur when an individual buys a firearm for another person who for one reason or another is prohibited from making the purchase himself. We had a case here in CNY where one single gun store in Georgia was a major supplier for all kinds of illegal handguns that showed up in our neighborhoods. Just one little podunk gun shop out in the middle of Southeast Nowhere provided dozens of gang guns.

They'll Brazen It Out

The wheels are coming off the global warming bus, but the MSM is ignoring the wreck.

First, a hacker(s) breaks into the email server of the University of East Anglia's Hadley Climatic Research Centre and posts thousands of emails, some of which imply that climate scientists "cooked the books" and purposely withheld data in order to have the results of their studies fit the climate models that predict anthropogenic global warming.

This article by the Canada Free Press puts this incident in good prospective. So called climate scientists have been stonewalling the release of their data for years and are now finally being forced to account for their deceit.

Another glimpse into what the files and emails reveal was the report by Professor Deming. He wrote, “With publication of an article in Science (in 1995) I gained sufficient credibility in the community of scientists working on climate change. They thought I was one of them someone who would pervert science in the service of social and political causes. So one of them let his guard down. A major person working in the area of climate change and global warming sent me an astonishing email that said. “We must get rid of the Medieval Warm Period.” The person in question was Jonathan Overpeck and his even more revealing emails are part of those exposed by the hacker. It is now very clear that Deming’s charge was precise. They have perverted science in the service of social and political causes.

Many people are in the process of going through these emails. Some comments:

This is amazing. I just searched for ‘Penn State’ and in the first e-mail there’s talk of how 50-year smoothing wipes out the effect they’re looking for.
Filename: 1168883146.txt
If my first search and first click turned up ’science in action’, how much is there in this archive?

Marc Sheppard of the American Thinker gives further insight into the enormity of these findings.

After all, the names of the email exchangers represent a who's-who of the world's leading climate alarmism scientists, including Stephen Schneider, Gavin Schmidt, and James Hansen. And the e-mails themselves seemingly betray an organized apparatus of deception.

Now, these are the same Mann, Bradley, and Hughes whose MBH98 reconstruction (aka the "Hockey Stick" graph) -- which deceitfully depicts last millennium's global temperatures as flat prior to a dramatic upturn last century -- remains the poster-child of global warming hysteria despite being thoroughly debunked. And here we find Jones writing the three the following year admitting to using Mann's "trick" to "hide" a temperature decline.

Remember the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy? How about a real conspiracy, how about an attempt to hijack our legislative processes in order to redistribute trillions, with a "T", of dollars in this country alone, delivering a body blow to our economy from which we will never recover?

The MSM is still largely ignoring this or spinning it as a lame attempt to discredit an already proven hypothesis. The democrats will pooh pooh these revelations. The arrogant sons of bitches will attempt to brazen this out. We can't let them.

These scientists should be prosecuted. Al Gore and his buddies have used these lies to enrich themselves.

Billions of tax dollars have been diverted from legitimate purposes and used to fund charlatans in the name of science.

Our children have been brainwashed by NEA union members into believing a fairy tale. This is orders of magnitude worse than the Intelligent Design instruction that the liberals fear so much.

They should all be imprisoned and their homes and fortunes forfeited.

SNL Gets It

Obongo doesn't get it.
The Democrats in Congress don't get it.
The liberal media reporters and commentators don't get it.

But the folks at SNL get it.

Oh, and so do the Chinese.

Ghost Districts In The Sky

Cap'n Bob & the Damsel are one of the sites I regularly peruse and I delight in sparring with the Cap'n on various subjects. The following is our repartee on the Stimulus Package and non-existent Congressional Districts reporting jobs created, saved, resuscitated, resurrected and jobs that followed us home can we keep them oh please please please?

Cap'n Bob just cracked me up with his response.

Politics Don't Enter This Picture

Two relatives of politicians were arrested for DWI lately, Sen. John Kerry's daughter, Alexandra, was arrested by the LAPD in Hollywood today (19 Nov) for suspicion of DWI and Sen. Dick Lugar's wife, Charlene, was arrested for DWI and leaving the scene of an accident by the Fairfax County PD.

No one was injured in either instance.

Thirty years ago this month (November 1979) I stopped drinking. I was not an alcoholic, I was addicted to nicotine. I decided to stop drinking for a host of reasons, one of which is the number of incidents I had to respond to as a police officer where alcohol was a contributing factor.

My kid sister drank herself to death at age 47 leaving a husband and two daughters. My father was a "functioning" alcoholic who died at age 64. I miss both terribly.

Alcoholism is no laughing matter. Perhaps this can be a wake up call for these two people; an opportunity for them to address what effect alcohol is having on their lives. My heart attack did that for me and cigarettes. It's been over eight years now since I abandoned the use of tobacco.

I'm certainly not implying that Alexandra or Charlene are alcoholics, but the use of alcohol, as well as other substances, exacts a terrible toll on society and I hope that they both can come out of this with a more healthy attitude towards drinking. As a husband and a parent I sympathize with both Senators and I can understand their concern for their loved ones in this situation.

I wish all involved well.

Asleep At The Helm

This should never happen. Lax discipline leads to an accident where military personnel could have been injured.

The crew aboard a U.S. submarine made dozens of errors before the vessel collided with an American warship in the Persian Gulf, an accident that exposed lax leaders who tolerated sleeping, slouching and a radio room rigged with music speakers, a Navy review found.

I'm gonna check with Cookie on this and if any other submariner has any information on how a submarine is run, please drop a line. I would think that submarine duty is particularly hazardous and that strict discipline is maintained for the safety of the crew.

Navy investigators placed blame for the March collision on the submarine's ineffective and negligent command leadership," including what they called a lack of standards and failure to adequately plan for crossing the busy Strait of Hormuz.

Hopefully, and I trust it is true, this example is the exception rather than the rule. From the Navy Times:

Damage to a submarine involved in a grounding accident off the coast of Italy is worse than officials initially expected, sources told The Day of New London.

Most of the bottom half of the rudder is torn off, and gouges in the hull are deep enough to raise concerns about the structural integrity of the USS Hartford, the newspaper reported.

The damage occurred in October when the Hartford was conducting training drills in the channel as it departed La Maddalena and wandered outside the channel when the navigation team went too long without updating the ship's chart position, sources told the newspaper.

[...] The commodore of Submarine Squadron 22 in La Maddalena, Capt. Greg Parker, and the ship's captain, Cmdr. Christopher R. Van Metre, were both relieved of command Nov. 9. Six crewmen who were part of the navigation party received punishments for dereliction of duty.

I am wondering if the Navy is going to conduct a review of operational readiness and competency throughout the various commands. In any event, the investigation is still continuing.

President O'Bowa


Getting his second World "Let Me Stick My Face In Your Ass" Tour off to a rousing start, President O'Bowa first lubricates his tongue in Japan where he slides it up the butt of Emperor Akihito. The dapper Emperor stated that it gave him a "Chris Matthews Tingle" and was surprised that the President could get his tongue into a space that "a greased noodle won't fit." The Royal Family was also grateful that O'Bowa discovered a hitherto unknown colon polyp inside the Emperor.
Encouraged by the tingle and the Emperor's minty fresh bunghole, O'Bowa also did the Empress; a measly 3 on the O'Bowa Ass Licking Index (OALI) because it was "like slurping two chopsticks." O'Bowa then went for the Emperor's famous tight-assed shih tzu but the dog beat him to it and was found licking its own asshole.

O'Bowa will next visit China, where diarrhea induced Long Distance Fecal Squirting is an Olympic sport. Several gross of tongue condoms have been ordered.

The Navy Follows The Army

The Army is not the only branch of America's armed services that toe the politically correct diversity line. I read this first at Powerline and followed their link to the Navy Times.

Naval Academy leaders removed two midshipmen from a color guard that performed at the World Series last week because they were white men, and replaced them with a non-white man and a white woman so the academy could present a more “diverse” profile, according to several sources, a move that has reportedly angered mids and alumni.

As it turned out, the color guard still ended up all white because the male replacement forgot parts of his uniform.

The clueless and shoeless middie is a Pakistani. If the uniform of the day required him to wear a scimitar and stuff a felafel up his ass you bet he would have come prepared.

Two white, male members of the color guard learned Oct. 28 they were being replaced with a white woman, Midshipman 2nd Class Hannah Allaire, and a non-white man, Midshipman 2nd Class Zishan Hameed, on orders of the school’s administration, according to an internal e-mail message provided to Navy Times by an academy professor. With a national television audience, Naval Academy leadership worried the color guard it planned to send wasn’t diverse enough, the e-mail said.

Once again the primary concern driving the decision process of military commanders is how they must appear to be diverse. This is a disease.

However, after the color guard arrived in New York for the game Oct. 29, Hameed, whose family is from Pakistan, realized he had left his dress shoes and cover in Annapolis. Midshipman 1st Class Aaron Stroud regained his place and served as a rifleman for the presentation of the colors. Allaire carried the other rifle and the four original members marched with the flags.

This idiot leaves half his shit behind. Did the silly wog expect to march bare assed in Yankee Stadium? How the hell did he even make it into the color guard? Never mind. We know.

I have marched in NYC parades and in Shea Stadium during a Jets half time (in high school I was in a drum & bugle corps, our drill instructor was a retired Marine). When you are marching in something as important as the World Series - the freaking World Series! - and you are representing the US Navy and carrying the colors, you bring your shit with you! And your shit is pressed, polished and perfect!

And it appears that the Navy Commandant is now laying a smoke screen by lying about the number of men that were supposed to march in the color guard. Naval Academy Commandant Capt. Matt Klunder states that eight men were dispatched to match but because of the uniform foul up, only six could complete the detail.

But a Naval Academy press release on the morning of the game said six mids were presenting the colors at the World Series, and identified them all by name. Stroud and the other white male mid who had been cut went to the game, according to the e-mail obtained by Navy Times — fortunate, because Stroud was needed to take Hameed’s place — but they never expected to be able to march that night.

It appears that laying smoke is a time honored war tactic that is used not only to mask your maneuvers during a sea battle, but also to cover your ass when you screw up. In any event, Navy midshipmen and Academy alumni are pissed and the American public is treated once again to a vision of our military paying homage to an intellectually and morally bankrupt, meaningless concept.

Thanks




God Bless Our Vets.

From a Recon Marine in Afghanistan

Charlie da ChiTown Cop sent me this. A real hero wrote it.
Please take a minute to read this. You won't be disappointed.

From a Recon Marine in Afghanistan
From the Sand Pit

It's freezing here. I'm sitting on hard, cold dirt between rocks and shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush Mountains , along the Dar 'yoi Pomir River , watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a cave. Stake out, my friend, and no pizza delivery for thousands of miles.

I also glance at the area around my ass every ten to fifteen seconds to avoid another scorpion sting. I've actually given up battling the chiggers and sand fleas, but them scorpions give a jolt like a cattle prod. Hurts like a bastard. The antidote tastes like transmission fluid, but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my pack.

The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and drink water. That requires couriers and that's where an old bounty hunter like me comes in handy. I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage facilities, type the info into the handheld, shoot the coordinates up to the satellite link that tells the air commanders where to drop the hardware. We bash some heads for a while, then I track and record the new movement.

It's all about intelligence. We haven't even brought in the snipers yet.

These scurrying rats have no idea what they're in for. We are but days away from cutting off supply lines and allowing the eradication to begin.

I dream of bin Laden waking up to find me standing over him with my boot on his throat as I spit into his face and plunge my nickel-plated Bowie knife through his frontal lobe. But you know me, I'm a romantic. I've said it before and I'll say it again: This country blows, man. It's not even a country. There are no roads, there's no infrastructure, there's no government. This is an inhospitable, rock pit shit hole ruled by eleventh century warring tribes. There are no jobs here like we know jobs.

Afghanistan offers two ways for a man to support his family: join the opium trade or join the army. That's it. Those are your options. Oh, I forgot, you can also live in a refugee camp and eat plum-sweetened, crushed beetle paste and squirt mud like a goose with stomach flu, if that's your idea of a party. But the smell alone of those 'tent cities of the walking dead' is enough to hurl you into the poppy fields to cheerfully scrape bulbs for eighteen hours a day.

I've been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks, and Turkmen and even a couple of Pushtuns, for over a month-and-a- half now, and this much I can say for sure: These guys, all of 'em, are Huns... actual, living Huns. They LIVE to fight. It's what they do. It's ALL they do. They have no respect for anything, not for their families, nor for each other, nor for themselves. They claw at one another as a way of life. They play polo with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human cockfights to defend the family honor. Huns, roaming packs of savage, heartless beasts who feed on each other's barbarism. Cavemen with AK-47's.

Then again, maybe I'm just cranky.

I'm freezing my ass off on this stupid hill because my lap warmer is running out of juice, and I can't recharge it until the sun comes up in a few hours. Oh yeah! You like to write letters, right? Do me a favor, Bizarre. Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and that awful, sneering, pompous Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban 'smart.' They are not smart. I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary because the word they are looking for is 'cunning.'

The Taliban are cunning, like jackals and hyenas and wolverines.. They are sneaky and ruthless, and when confronted, cowardly. They are hateful, malevolent parasites who create nothing and destroy everything else. Smart.. Pfft. Yeah, they're real smart.

They've spent their entire lives reading only one book (and not a very good one, as books go) and consider hygiene and indoor plumbing to be products of the devil.

They're still figuring out how to work a Bic lighter. Talking to a Taliban warrior about improving his quality of life is like trying to teach an ape how to hold a pen; eventually he just gets frustrated and sticks you in the eye with it.

OK, enough. Snuffle will be up soon, so I have to get back to my hole. Covering my tracks in the snow takes a lot of practice, but I'm good at it.

Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets and move on with your lives. The story line you are getting from CNN and other news agencies is utter bullshit and designed not to deliver truth but rather to keep you glued to the screen through the commercials. We've got this one under control. The worst thing you guys can do right now is sit around analyzing what we're doing over here, because you have no idea what we're doing, and really, you don't want to know. We are your military, and we are doing what you sent us here to do.

You wanna help? Tell Obama to get off his a** and send the troops we asked for. Also, Buy Bonds America .

Stop It, Stop It Right Now

It is not a tragedy, it is an outrage. But the Army's highest ranking officer, Gen. George Casey, believes that the "tragedy" that took the lives of thirteen GI's and wounded twenty-nine more takes second place to the evil that would befall this country if:

"...our diversity becomes a casualty here. It’s not just about Muslims, we have a very diverse army, we have very diverse society and that gives us all strength."

Idiot. The stupid politically correct so&so should be horse whipped and thrown out of the Army on his flat ass. Where the hell is a George Patton when you need one? If this had occured while my daughter was still being recruited I would have fought like crazy to keep her out of the Army.

I am beside myself. These are the jackasses commanding my child? Toss diversity General and grab a clue. You've got to be more concerned with the lives and safety of your command rather than their racial or ethnic composition.



I stopped for about a half hour to calm down and clean the language up on this post.

Make It A Rusty Needle

John Allen Muhammad will die tonight at 2100 hrs from lethal injection. The USSC has denied his appeal and Tim Kaine, the Governor of Virginia, has refused to set aside the death sentence. It will be SRO in the witness room as so many of the next of kin have requested to be present.

Muhammad and his accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, are also suspects in fatal shootings in Alabama, Arizona, Louisiana and Washington.

If you remember, there was some controversy as to where Muhammad would be prosecuted - either in Virginia or Maryland. Virginia won the honors when they promised to simultaneously administer the needle o' doom with an unmedicated colonoscopy to see if Mohammad's asshole slams shut when he mets Jesus.

National Suicide


E Pluribus Unum

An elegant translation of this is "Out of many, one.

This is where the worship of diversity has gone wrong, hellishly wrong. Our nation's strength does not rely upon diversity but upon unity.
Diversity is a spice to make the stew interesting; diversity is curtains and blinds in the living room; diversity is hubcaps and a fancy paint job on a 1965 Mustang. But it is not the basis for a recipe, a house or a classic car. A strong foundation and sturdy walls is what keeps the house upright and secure. Good engineering, a reliable motor and a well designed chassis is needed for a car to become a classic.

That's where Unity plays a role.

America is never so strong as when it is united. A car can not be manufactured properly if the white collar workers are arguing with the union over where to locate the wheels. A building will not last if the architects are ignored and everyone does whatever is to their own advantage when the walls go up. Unity of purpose is what is needed and we are seeing problems in our own country because of this.

Perhaps the biggest impediment to unity has been our amazing prosperity. I say perhaps because the ostentatious display of wealth in this country has helped to create an appetite for material goods among those who can, and can't, afford them.

Those who have much, want more. Those who have less, want those who have more to disencumber themselves of wealth (whether real or perceived) in the name of fairness.

All this greed finds expression through our political process. Social programs for those who are in want (I will not dignify their greed by labelling it as need) and government contracts for corporations who grease the palms of politicians.

The underclasses (yes, we have an appalling underclass) no longer rely on industry and thrift to improve their lot. They have found allies in Congress to forcibly remove funds from productive citizens so now they can live off the industry and thrift of others. This is an incredibly destructive relationship that has dragged our once proud Country into a profound morass. It has trashed our financial and political institutions.

Obama money comes from Heaven according to the underclasses. There is no understanding of the economy, not even the basic premises of self discipline are taught. Instead, instant gratification is demanded and must be granted lest violence be visited upon the deniers. This is the Balkanization of America.

Greed for the wealth of others and political advantage is tearing us apart.

Do we change the motto on our currency to Out Of Many, Even More?

Let's Destabilize Our Society

Looking at what just transpired in Fort Hood today, why do we allow these animals to migrate to our shores?

These people just do not blend into our society or any society for that matter. Even if they are born here, their religion teaches them that all other faiths must be brought into subservience - that's what Islam means - "Submission."

They do not become Americans, Germans, Dutch or Brits when they immigrate. They are always Muslims living amongst infidels who need to submit and they will never be anything else.

Most other group of immigrants have more or less successfully assimilated into the cultures of their adopted countries. But not Muslims.

Look at all the unbelievable hell they are raising in Europe and else where. They have trashed Paris, ransacked London, Denmark, Sweden, Greece and anywhere else where more than two of these assholes split a felafel. And they are raising hell over here.

Looking at US immigration statistics from muslim countries since the 9/11 attack, we now have 22% more muslims entering this country every year than we did in 2001.

We went from admitting 49,957 in 2001 to 61,086 last year. Since Muslim extremists attacked us seven years ago, we have let 402,000 more Muslims into our country. Who vetted these people? Many of them danced in the streets when the Towers collapsed in smoke and ash.

Many travel like gypsies from one Mideastern shithole to another; so who tracked their movements? Who determined if they had questionable associations or changed their names half a dozen times? And how do you find out if they did? It's not like Jordan or Lebanon keeps dibs on everyone crossing over from Syria and bribing poorly paid public officials is an honored custom in the Middle East.

Why would we even bother to devote investigative resources to allow them to come to this country in the first place? We do not need these people here. We do not need them in our armed forces either. There is no national shortage of 7-11 cashier clerks.

We have isolated instances of honor killings in New Jersey and other states. A young Canadian woman was murdered by her Muslim father because she refused to wear medieval headwear, an Arizona girl was run over and died - killed by her Muslim father because she had become "Westernized." A youn woman in Georgia is also strangled by her Muslim father because she wanted to divorce her husband.

Google "Muslim father kills daughter" and see what you get - 2,570,000 hits. What is really scary is that very few of these references come from news sources. It seems that the media is just not interested in reporting on Muslims killing their children.

Bush kissed Saudi ass and Obongo bowed over it. There is no justification for this.
