Pest Control

It looks like the Palestinians are living up to their reputations as "Allah's Trailerpark Trash." From OpiniPundit:

"Beirut, 31 May (AKI) - Lebanon will soon ask Arab states to assist it with a process to disarm Palestinian militants groups operating outside refugee camps situated in the country, a top government official was quoted as saying in the London-based newspaper, al-Sharq al-Awsat on Wednesday. "[Lebanese] premier Fuad Siniora will soon send out some requests for help to various Arab leaders," Khalili Makkawi, the official responsible for the Palestinian issue in Lebanon told the newspaper."

Maybe they can spray or something.

"Two weeks ago a Lebanese soldier was killed during a gunfight between Lebanese troops and Palestinian militants from the Fatah-Intifada group. The incident took place near Lebanon's border with Syria."

No one ever taught these people not to crap where they eat.

"Last Sunday, another Palestinian group, Islamic Jihad, claimed responsibility for firing seven missiles at Israeli targets across Lebanon's southern border with Israel. Also on Sunday, Israel, in an apparent retaliation for the Islamic Jihad attack, struck at a southern Lebanon base of another Palestinian militant group, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command.

All the recent clashes have hardened the Lebanese government's resolve to deprive the Palestinian militants of their weapons, al-Sharq al-Awsat said."

So Lebanon wants to deprive these animals of their weapons. Let them fire a few more rockets at the Israelis so your country gets pounded. If you're thinking of depriving them of something, how about oxygen?

"Some 400,000 Palestinian refugees live in Lebanon, mostly in overpopulated camps situated near Beirut, Tripoli, Sidon and Tyre."

"Overpopulated camps" is United Nations shorthand for "festering shithole."

"Many Lebanese regard the presence of the Palestinians in the country as a destabilising factor which also drags Lebanon into the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel."

Grab a number and go to the back of the line Achmed. So does everybody else. Syria, Jordan and Egypt have refused to assimilate these people into their nations. The Jordanians slaughtered tens of thousands of them in the 1950's. Obviously they had the right idea. These mutts are Islam's scabs on the ass end of the Near East.

More Gubmint Lunacy

This bit o' lunacy is from the Chicago Sun Times:


Ronald Michalowicz, a fire inspector for the village of Bedford Park, was given a 27 percent chance to live as he battled a rare form of tongue cancer.

The community rallied around him, raising about $25,000 to help.

He fought the cancer into remission."

So far this is a heart warming story. A man faces certain death but against all odds and with the help of his friends, he struggles and wins.

Now let the gubmint stumble, stagger and fumble its way into the picture. Like a turd on a wedding cake the village gubmint makes an unexpected and unwelcome intrusion:

"But the village where he had worked for 28 years fired him for taking the contributions, in alleged violation of the Illinois Gift Ban Act and village code prohibiting employees from soliciting gifts that could affect their decision-making.

On Friday, Michalowicz sued Bedford Park, its mayor and village board in federal court for allegedly violating his rights. "The emotional stress I'm going through is unbelievable," Michalowicz said."

Michalowicz lost 107 pounds during his cancer treatment. I know cancer survivors (and unfortunatley a few who didn't) and have witnessed what these poor people go through. As one of them explained, "the doctors have to kill you slowly to kill the cancer".

"Michalowicz was diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and continued working until March 2004 while undergoing chemotherapy. He left work when brutal radiation treatments began. He lost 107 pounds.

In January 2004, two colleagues at the village decided to solicit donations to help Michalowicz pay his mounting bills."

And now he must initiate legal action to fight to get his his job back; fired for accepting money that he did not solicit.

"A building inspector, Steve Edwards, cleared a form letter with the mayor at the time, Ronald Robison, to ask for contributions. "

Mr. Edwards must have had a vision, some preternatural sense of an impending idiotarian intervention. As so often happens, a "Singularity of Stupid" can appear at any time, anywhere. Unfortunately, even the best preparations fall prey to the crushing ignorance of the accompanying “Dumb Horizon.”

No thought emitted from inside an dumb horizon will ever reach a sentient being outside the horizon. The sentient being is unable to recognize a cognizant communicative pattern amid the foul, flatulant noise, hence the name “Dumbass Hole”. From the size of the Singularity, it appears that Village of Bedford Park has a "Super Dumbass Hole."

"It just seemed like the right thing to do," said Robison, who is no longer mayor. Michalowicz looked so bad the mayor figured he was never coming back to work.

No matter, the poor man survived and the CEO of the Village at the time gave his blessings to the whole affair.

"Michalowicz argues he has no conflict. After he returned to work, he notes, he wrote up four businesses that contributed to his fund."

His attorney, Michael Ettinger, said he doesn't understand why the village fired his client.
"His crime seems to be that he recovered from cancer," said Ettinger, who is representing Michalowicz with attorney Richard S. Zachary.

Michalowicz was only one year from retirement.

This sure sounds like payback time to me.

To contact Bedford Park, use this link. I'm sure they will be more than happy to hear from you.

Cookie's Big Adventure

Run over to the Cook Shack Gab & Grub and read this.

Cause then the following will make a lot more sense.

Come and listen to m’ story ‘bout a man named Gene
Cruising under water in a fleet submarine
Then one day he’s trying to blow a little air
Into a high pressure steel derrière.
A sanitary tank that is…
Fulla beans
Submarine ass beans I reckon

Now it won’t flush and Gene’s pumpin’ harder
Sending lotsa pressure into the Piper’s poopy larder.
Building up a force that is close enough to earn
A blown safety valve inside the galley’s urn.
Sit yerself down sailor
Pour a cuppa joe
It’ll be yer last…

So the next thing ya know all hell is breaking loose
With butt torpedoes from every man’s caboose.
With all that pressure every turd is liquefied
“The COB wants ta see ya!” and Cookie nearly died.
Scared he was
Dunno whats happenin’
What's that funky smell …

Well the COB’s like a maniac, he’s in an awful snit.
Screamin’ and yellin’ while he’s covered in s**t.
But Cookie cleaned the mess he made and finally settled down;
And now he’s a blogger of no little renown.
Thanks for stoppin’ by now.
Ya’ll come back.
Ya hear?

I Yam What I Yam

Cookie over at the Cook Shack -- Gab & Grub was kinda down about blogging. Right or wrong he speaks his mind and after all, it's his blog. Everybody likes to think that what they have to say will be well received by everyone else. Well, sometimes that's not in the cards. We come as we are, warts and all. Which reminds me of a story. Well, two stories actually.

When my wife and I were dating, we were in a store looking at all the little expensive doohickeys. I was working midnights at the time, drinking oceans of coffee and often afflicted with nearly constant gas. As I am easily amused this was not always a bad thing.

Well, the store was nearly empty and just the storeclerk was within earshot when I pulled this doozy. My little honey was ooohhing and aaahhing over the cute little geegaws when I decided to set her up. I walked away from her and opened the doors to some teeny tiny keepsake chest of drawers and said "Oh look at this!" She took the bait. All innocent like she traipses over to where I am standing, peers around me and says, "What's that?"

"A barking spider!" says I and I pulled the pin on my butt grenade. Well, there was a greater pressure differential then I anticipated. A much greater differential. It was like I had suddenly invented the nuclear asshole.

What I had intended as a minor whitecap came out as a tsunami. There sprang forth both a resonance and a fragrance that was truly remarkable in its intensity and longevity. The glass shelves in that classy little shoppe literally shook. I cracked up. I was hysterical. I'll never forget the look on the face of that poor classy store clerk. Shock and awe baby, shock and awe.

I was never so proud.

My point is this, at this juncture of her life that young woman knew without a doubt what she was getting into. Any misconceptions she had about what kind of man she was involved with instantly faded and died right along with every flower in that shoppe. She stayed with me because, well, I'll prolly never know. But at this point she decided to stick it out with me and that was over 25 years ago.

It is the Sunday before Labor Day, 1998, and that same woman, now my bride of some 16 years, was sitting with me in a crowded Denny's restaurant in North Syracuse. We were on our way to Alexandria Bay for the day. The kids were at their big sister's house and the wife and I were alone. Just the two of us on a glorious Sunday morning. That changed.

We ordered breakfast and were enjoying our coffee. I remember the scene like it was yesterday... the bustling waitresses, the noise, the people around us (they'll come into play shortly). It was right around noontime and everyone had just left church services to enjoy a spot of brunch.

Our orders finally arrived and I am hungery. I picked up the katsup bottle to douse my home fries.

Now I hate runny, watery katsup. So I always shake the bottle before I apply the contents. But forsome reason I didn't check to see whether or not the top was on securely. So I shakes the bottle. Hard. Several times. Mr. Heinz decides he has an upset tummy and throws up.

Because I was looking at my food I did not notice that:
1) On the first shake the cap flies off, hits my wife in the face and lands in her eggs.
2) On the second shake, the suddenly unencumbered contents of the bottle fly out and hit my wife in the face.
3) On the third shake (yes I'm that oblivious) the rest of the bottle's contents notice how much fun their cousins are having and decide to join them. But a little bit higher... in my wife's hair.

That's when I hear,"What are you doing!" I turn to my right and see my wife, my bride, the mother of my children. And she is wearing alot of katsup. It's dripping off her. So I react in my patented concerned, ohhh I'm so sorry honey let me make it better mode. I get hysterical. I'm laughing my fool head off. She just stares at me in a manner strangely reminiscent of the infamous "Barking Spider" incident. But she doesn't get mad.

I try to wipe the mess off her and a waitress intervenes with some towels. There are two nice ladies eating right next to us (on the leftside so they escaped the tomato frenzy). One of them smiles a little sadly at my wife and says, "You must be married a long time."

And that's kinda how I feel about you, the reader. I will try not to intentionally insult or malign you. But I may say something stupid or ill-considered. If it bothers you, please leave a comment if you're so moved. If you agree you can certainly do likewise also.

I am not going to pretend I am something that I'm not. Here I am, warts and all. All I can promise is that I'll just try to monitor the pressure a little better.

Keep God In Our Schools

From Stop The ACLU

"The senior class at a southern Kentucky high school gave their response Friday night to a federal judge’s order banning prayer at commencement."

It appears that a 17 year old Muslim student found that the incusion of prayer at a high school commencement program was offensive and used the ACLU to pick some jack booted thug wearing the robes of a federal magistrate to order an injunction against prayer being used during the ceremony.

"About 200 seniors stood during the principal’s opening remarks and began reciting the Lord’s Prayer, prompting a standing ovation from a standing-room only crowd at the Russell County High School gymnasium.

The thunderous applause drowned out the last part of the prayer."

This puts an exclamation point on how I feel about federal judges interjecting themselves into LOCAL events supported by LOCAL tax payers who want to conduct a LOCAL seremony as they see fit. No one is forced to pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Joseph or to Al-Gameia, the Shrub goddess. No one is forced to pray at all.

"The revival like atmosphere continued when senior Megan Chapman said in her opening remarks that God had guided her since childhood. Chapman was interrupted repeatedly by the cheering crowd as she urged her classmates to trust in God as they go through life.

The challenge made the graduation even better because it unified the senior class, Chapman said."

Indeed it did, as well as the entire crowd it appears. Except for the muslims *snicker*.

"The graduation took place about 12 hours after a federal judge blocked the inclusion of prayer as part of Russell County High School’s graduation ceremonies."

That was a great response to a judge who had no business forcing a centuries old custom to be treated as something illegal. And a great response to a muslim hypocrite who belongs to a religion that murders believers of other faiths if they don't convert or treats them like chattel.

Kentucky, you rock!

Hie Thee To Gitmo

From the Rott:

BC The Imperial Torturer has referenced a Tampa Tribune story about two Saudi men who entered a school bus and rode it to Wharton High School in Tampa.

"Students on the bus became alarmed, as did the bus driver, who called ahead. Hillsborough County sheriff's deputies met the bus at the school and detained the men. No one was injured and nothing out of line occurred on the bus, deputies said."

Anyone who has a lick of sense must remember what happened in Beslan, North Ossetia, in September 2004 when Islamic terorists seized a school and took over 1,300 hostages. Three days later 344 people were murdered, including 186 children, and hundreds more wounded.

"Mana Saleh Almanajam, 23, who lives in Apt. 302 in The Point apartments, and Shaker Mohsen Alsidran, 20 Monticello Gardens, Apt. 304-A, each were charged with trespassing on school property. Both remained in Orient Road Jail on Friday evening. Bail for each was set at $250."

Both of these men are in the prime age group for terrorists. And bear in mind, over 75% of the terrorists who participated in the 9/11 outrage were Saudis. Most of them were in the US on student visas.

"Both defendants gave several versions of the reason they took a school bus to a high school," said Hillsborough County sheriff's spokesman J.D. Callaway.

This is police talk for "the sons of bitches were lying to us."

Ahmed Bedier, Tampa director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said the men likely meant no harm and that because "they were from Saudi Arabia, that escalated the situation."

He blamed the incident on cultural differences."

Cultural differences being whether or not you're a blood thirsty Islamofascist who just applied to live in a free society that doesn't give a rat's ass about the mad pedophile you worship.

"They didn't differentiate between a school bus and public transportation," he said. "

Don't expect all Americans to be dumbasses Ahmed. We also know that they didn't differentiate between combatants and non-combatants at the World Trade Center. Nor in Beslan. Nor in England, nor in France, nor in Denmark, nor in ....

"Almanajam and Alsidran at first told deputies they were from Morocco, but later admitted being from Saudi Arabia, deputies said. They said they were enrolled at the English Language Institute at the University of South Florida."

This is also the same campus where Professor Sami Al-Arian, described as the North American leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), was employed. He was arrested with three others for racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder. He was sentenced to almost five years in prison and then will be deported back to whatever shithole he crawled out of.

The University of Southern Florida is obviously a rats nest of subversion and terrorism. Your tax dollars at work.

"Both arrived in the United States about six months ago and have student visas that require them to be enrolled at the English Language Institute, Callaway said."

Does anyone see a pattern here?

Hie Thee To Gitmo Mana and Shaker. Spill your guts there figuratively before someone here does it literally.

Crime And Justice

This is an article from the May 2006 issue of American Police Beat, on page 21 written by Marshall Frank. Mr. Marshall is a retired police officer and an author. His latest work is "The Latent."

Meet Stephanie Mohr, criminal, now serving time in federal prison. Mohr's crime? Her dog bit a man in the leg. Valk, a German Shepherd, worked for the Prince George's County Police Department. Officer Stephanie Mohr was his K-9 partner.

The victim was an illegal alien from El Salvador, complete with criminal record, caught with an accomplice at 1 a.m. atop the roof of a commercial building. Prosecutors asserted that the dog bite wasn't necessary, thus violating Ricardo's civil rights. For that, Stephanie Mohr, age 35, decorated cop, devoted mother, is spending ten years in a prison cell.

Where our constitution is designed to protect Americans from injustice, the justice system creates its own injustice. The main prosecution witness, another cop, faced long-term prison sentences on other charges and testified in exchange for a deal.

In a time when our society laments over too many one-parent homes, Mohr's son, Adam, age 4, will spend his formative years growing up without his mom in the home. And some truly dangerous criminals will remain free to commit violent crimes against innocent civilians because Stephanie Mohr occupies that prison bed.

Police officers today are but reporting agents who are afraid to make one wrong move for fear of Monday morning quarterbacks demanding"justice." Stephanie Mohr serves as an example why cops don't dare do proactive police work any more, lest they end up in prison instead of the criminals. Perhaps the release of the dog wasn't absolutely necessary. I've often heard such arguments by sofa-sitting second-guessers, but few know what it feels like in that moment requiring a split-second decision. If Stephanie Mohr was truly guilty, she would deserve recourse, but she does not belong in prison.

Where is the outrage? Where is the voice of 800,000 plus American cops who stand just as vulnerable to this kind of persecution because they carry a badge? Police officers are our first line of protection. A bad cop here and there must be dismissed and even prosecuted. But for a dog bite on an illegal alien dope dealing thief? Ten years of a police officer's life wasted? This is beyond wrong. It is abominable. (

Now there is some controversy regarding Ofc. Mohr's actions in this and other incidents. I do not advocate ignoring violations of the law by a police officer (if indeed she did) and there seems to be enough doubt that she did. But ten years? And Mohr was already tried in a Maryland state court. The jury refused to convict her.

This reminds me of the Rodney King fiasco where juries refused to convict four LAPD officers in a California state court. The ensuing riots created a federal tsunami that swept through the local political scene. But this tsunami did not go after the perpetrators of the violence, the mindless criminals, the rioting felons that killed 50 people, injured 2,000 more and caused nearly a billion dollars in damage.

Of course not, that's too hard.

No, the feds went after the four cops who were already exonerated in state court of using excessive force in restraining some drunken, PCP addled moron who endangered the lives of who knows how many citizens by driving through LA at speeds well in excess of 100 mph.

Two of the four officers were convicted in the federal kangaroo court. In April 1993, Sergeant Stacey Koon and Officer Laurence Powell were sentenced to thirty months' imprisonment.

And what, pray tell, what did the federal government do to the rioters? If you recall, Reginald Denny was a white truck driver who was ripped from his vehicle and severely beaten by rioters. One of whom, Damian Williams, danced over Denny's helpless body after caving his skull in with a slab of concrete.

Read the extent of Denny's injuries:
"Paramedics who attended to Denny said he came very close to death. His skull was fractured in ninety-one places and pushed into the brain. His left eye was so badly dislocated that it would have fallen into his sinus cavity had not the surgeons replaced the crushed bone with a piece of plastic. A permanent crater remains in his head despite efforts to correct it."

This was an overt act of racism clearly in violation of Denny's civil rights but the feds did absolutely nothing. The California State courts prosecuted Denny's assailants while the feds went back to what they do best, ignoring a possibly difficult prosecution and shoving their thumbs up their collective asses as far as their elbows will allow.

One assailant, Gary Williams, pled guilty and received a 36 month sentence (only six months less than the two cops). Please refresh your memory by reading Denny's injuries again.

Two others, Henry Watson and Antoine Miller, somehow were found innocent in "payback" for the four cops. So just like the LAPD cops the first time around in state court, these dirt bags were found innocent and the feds do nothing.

Damian "The Dancin' Machine" Williams was found guilty on one misdemeanor and one felony charge and in December 1993 was sentenced to ten years in prison. He did less than four years and was a free man by 1997. He has since committed murder and is now in prison until 2047.

And the feds did not intervene in this travesty.

When there's no justice from the courts, sometimes the only justice and the only deterrent to prevent future attacks are the measures you deal out yourself. As they say, the best learning is often accomplished when accompanied by trauma.

And that's the danger. Cops are not judge and jury and we must always be careful to use only "necessary and sufficient force" to effect a legal arrest. A pissed off cop has got to remember who he is pissed off at. If it's the judge, taking it out on a defendant is only going to jam you up. But I will say this. Cops who are hurt and angry will not do their job properly. They will not stick their necks out when they feel that they have been betrayed by the system. And liberal judges delight in doing just that.

We had that situation back in 1981 when three SPD officers were indicted for felony assault and weapons possession. The weapon? Their nightsticks. These officers arrested a heroin addict who was breaking into parked cars. He violently resisted arrest and later died in the hospital after suffering a massive heart attack. The officers were suspended and later indicted. When grand jury members were polled as to why they had indicted the officers, they stated that "Well, the chief of police suspended them so they had to have done something wrong."

One of those suspended officers was working relief in my normal assignment while I was on rest. The PBA was furious, absolutely furious. About 300 of us came to the station when the officers were arrested and arraigned (the jail, courts and police station were all in the same building back then) to show our support. Once the officers were released on bail, we went through the building pounding our batons on the walls. It was quite a sight and quite a racket. We marched up to the fourth floor and threw our police batons into the Chief's Office. The receptionist's desk area was completely buried in cocoa bola. For some reason the Chief and his deputy chiefs were not in the building that entire day whilst the rank and file manifested their displeasure. They may not have been in the same county.

Those batons were issued equipment and we refused to carry them. Every one of us was in violation of the equipment manual for months until the trial ended and no one dared to write us up.

The trial resulted in complete exoneration for the cops. Only then did we go to the property room and retrieve all the wood. But the hard lesson we learned (which was accompanied by a great deal of emotional trauma) struck a responsive chord throughout the department, and the mistrust and disdain it engendered for the Chief and the City administration lasted through the remainder of our careers.

Cops have a highly developed sense for political BS. If the cops suspect that Officer Mohr's imprisonment is nothing but another example of the federal government flexing its muscles, it may have accomplished similar effects within the Prince George's County Police Department. If I were a federal prosecutor working for the US Justice Department, I would make sure that I did my drinking in a county far from Prince George's County. Pissed off cops make elephants seem like Alzheimer patients.

Mamma Wants A Shootin' Iron

The refrigerator gave up the ghost yesterday so we went shopping for a new one today. The old one gave us almost 25 years of service so it doesn't owe us a dime. We shopped at a few stores and then saw a clearance model that we liked and bought it. we saved $150 from what was offered at another store and we can have it delivered it tomorrow. There is no charge for delivery or for disposing of the old one.

This is a family-owned discount store that has been around for years. It sells large and small appliances, jewelry, cameras...

And guns. Heh.

My wife has rather short arms (proportionate to the rest of her short body) and has a difficult time reaching the trigger on a rifle that has a regular sized stock. I had her "try on" a few at the last gun show but nothing worked. I thought that I would have to buy her a tactical shotgun that has an adjustable stock like an M4 carbine.

So I asked the guy behind the counter if he had something that would remedy this and he produced a Mossberg Bantam in .410. She placed it against her shoulder and voila! perfect fit.

The Bantam has a short stock that is made for young shooters (and short older ones!). But I thought $359 was a bit dear for this so when I got home I went on the web and found that Walmart sells the same weapon for $232. Tomorrow we'll see if Wallyworld has it in stock.

Spread The Word

Via Dave at Third World Country and His Imperial Rottiness Misha:

The President proposes “serious penalties” for illegal aliens. They must pay their taxes, work and learn English in order to “earn citizenship”.

So these law breakers have serious penalties imposed on them?

Penalties, eh? Gee. I pay taxes, work and speak English. What am I being penalized for?

What in the world did I do to deserve this?? Did I get arrested?? And what happened to my trial?? Who was the judge?? Where was my lawyer?? Why couldn't I appeal?? No justice no peace!!

Will Someone Take Charge Of Our Borders?

It's as if almost every politician in this country has left his nerve behind the door. There is an appalling silence from our elected officials in response to the border provocations by the Mexican government.

Mexico threatens to sue over use of the National Guard to provide additional manpower even though they will most likely not be used for enforcement purposes and many will not be armed.

They receive intelligence from our own Border Patrol to better direct the invasion of our country.

American citizens are kidnapped from American border cities and murdered by Mexican drug lords.

US authorities are being assaulted by illegals at an unprecedented rate by criminal aliens.

Over a quarter million criminal illegal aliens were housed in US jails and prisons last in 2003.

The US gives tens of millions of dollars every year to Mexico for border security issues and is stabbed in the back by corrupt Mexican authorities shooting at American law enforcement officials.

Mexican government officials laugh all the way to the bank with our tax dollars.

A good swift smack in the teeth will have them laughing out of the other side of their faces.

If only we could find someone in Washington with some stones.

No Change

Bush did not say anything that will change my mind. The limp-wristed half measures he proposes are too little, too late. We need a tourniquet to stop the flow, not a bandaid.

The bottom line is this:

We have been at war for over four and a half years and our borders have not been secured.

Not for a day, not for an hour, not for one minute.

And the Commander-in-Chief wants to wait until the end of 2008 to finally staff the Border Patrol with almost enough people to get it done.

The test is over. Please put your #2 pencils down and pass your test papers forward to the monitor.

Your test results will be available sometime in early November.

Instapundit has the full text of the speech.

Testicles. Rope. Tree. Some Assembly Required.

I just got home from church where the virtues and value of godly motherhood and parenting are extolled. Then I'm stunned to read this. Words escape me.

"McKenzie police have charged two Carroll County parents with raping their child.

Jonathan Wayne Goodrum, 19, and Kristina Louise Sawyer, 18, are charged with raping their 1-day-old girl before she was taken home from McKenzie Regional Hospital about six weeks ago, said McKenzie Police Lt. Tim Nanney."

RAPING A CHILD WHO IS ONE DAY OLD??! God forbid if this country ever loses the capacity to be outraged at an atrocity like this.

"Nanney said hospital officials notified police of the possible rape after noticing injuries to the child's rear during a routine examination given before newborns are released from the hospital.

"There were some skin tears in and around the private (back) area of the child," he said. The investigation led to the child's parents, Nanney said, and there was no indication that any hospital worker was involved in the incident."

I simply can't fathom this evil, this... this... this sick, insane focus on self-gratification to the exclusion of all other considerations of humanity and decency. What kind of parents produced this monster??! This man's heart is a foul, stinking, twisted piece of offal that should be ripped out of his chest and burned in the public square.

"Based on the investigation, we ruled out everyone but the mom and the dad," Nanney said.

These are not parents. Even animals do not do this to their young. If these reported events are true, if the investigation and prosecution show that these acts were actually perpetrated....

Then there must be a death penalty imposed. No civilized society can allow these demonic caricatures to survive lest they spawn again.

"The Tennessee Department of Children's Services has placed the baby girl with a relative, Nanney said. The parents are not allowed to have contact with the girl, who is now about 6 weeks old."

The parents should not be allowed to breathe.

"The couple was engaged to be married and was living at the Value Inn Motel on Highland Drive in McKenzie at the time of the incident. Sawyer is a McKenzie native, and Goodrum also has relatives living in Carroll County, though Nanney did not know his hometown."

You couldn't even begin to call this a marriage. A ritualized mating perhaps, a State sanctioned union in hell even, but not a marriage. God had nothing to do with this travesty.

Goodrum is being held in the Carroll County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond. Sawyer's bond was reduced to $5,000 after her arraignment. Nanney did not know if she still was being held or had been released."

It sounds like the chances are good that they were on public assistance at the time. If there isn't a lynch party forming in front of the Carroll County jail and a Home Depot sale on hemp rope then I don't know how any Tennessean males can look at themselves in the mirror to shave. String this man up by his testicles first and then by the neck.

Bad Choices

From this morning's Post Standard:

When Justin S. LaBrake brought a live hand grenade to the East Syracuse police station Friday, he figured he was just doing the right thing.

"I was trying to help them out," LaBrake said Saturday. "I was just trying to keep it out of other people's hands."

The police didn't see it that way. LaBrake, 22, of DeWitt, was charged with felony weapons possession and sent to the Onondaga County Justice Center jail to await bail.

The charge in all likelihood will be reduced. But he will have a felony arrest record. I hate to see this happen to an apparently good kid who served his country honorably and then screws up.

"LaBrake should not have brought the grenade through village streets to the police, but should have called police to come to the grenade, East Syracuse police Chief Douglas Robertson said Saturday. Robertson said he felt the felony charge was justified.

"You're not supposed to have a live hand grenade. Society frowns on it," Robertson said.

LaBrake is not unfamiliar with grenades. The former 10th Mountain Division soldier, who says he was honorably discharged in December, spent two tours of duty in war zones. Last year, he was in Iraq, he said. In 2002, he served 11 months in Afghanistan.

It was in Afghanistan that LaBrake got the grenade, a phosphorus bomb meant to burn equipment or vehicles, he said.

"We were on a mission at the end of the tour," LaBrake said. "They had boxes of them in the back of the Humvee in case we got ambushed or rushed."

There were a lot of them, he said. He figured one would make a good souvenir.

"I was immature, and it was my first tour," he said. "

Man, some bad choices here dude. Wish you luck with that.

I'll keep you readers updated on this.

More Rants

After reading some email from my last post I have to clarify some points.

I have absolutely no problem with Bennito the bean picker. He is trying to better himself and I support his efforts. All my great grandparents were immigrants. After applying for a visa, they came here for the same reason. Not for a free ride but for the opportunity afforded them in a free society.

Poncho the bean cooker is no danger, but many of his thousands, millions of countrymen are. They are shutting down the health and social services systems in all our southern border States. They are filling our prisons. Drugs crossing our borders are poisoning our youth. Militant aliens seek to wrest control of nearly a quarter of our nation's land mass and give it to a foreign government.

We have 12 million people in the country who don't belong here. Get them the hell out! Every other country in the world (except the Euroweenies) would be lining up the illegals and shipping their asses off to prisons and forced labor.

And I'm tired of subsidizing some schmoe's lawn service by paying for Juanita's annual foal dropping. If someone has a shitty job that needs to be done, get 'r done without breaking immigration laws. Or else mow your own friggin' lawn asswipe.

So when you come here, respect me, respect my country by obeying our laws. Don’t come here for the free lunch. It ain’t free.

I’m paying for it.

And as long as I’m paying for it, I reserve my right to say who gets the meat loaf, string beans and mashed potatoes and who gets the bologna sandwich.

There's numbers available at the American embassy nearest you. Grab one and wait your turn Paco!

I don't owe you anything other than the opportunity to leave you alone while you figure out where you want to work, how many kids you're gonna spawn and where you want to be buried.
And while you're here, don't bother me...

I got enough on my plate without listening to your whining bullshit.

All Your Base Are Sick Of Your Bullshit

Haven't done much blogging lately. Too busy and too depressed. Work is insane and I've had some health news that isn't too good. And now with the situation on our borders and our so called leaders running amok through the national treasury ... well I've about had it.

Peggy Noonan had an excellent article today in the Wall Street Journal that mirrors my own feelings. I no longer consider myself a Republican (I'll be changing my party affiliation to Independent soon). These simpering fools have forgotten why they were elected in the first place and the conservative electorate needs to send them a message in the form of a pink slip.

Get your ass out of Washington.

"Republicans inside and outside Washington are right when they say Republican leaders take a daily pounding in the press. They do. They're right when they say this causes attrition. It does."

I don't care what the press says, I don't rely on the MSM for information; haven't done so in over twenty years. If you're relying on the press to get re-elected then you've already lost.

"But it's also true that the administration and the Congress are losing their base, and it isn't because of the media. Republicans on the ground love to defy the MSM. When the media dislike their guy, they take it as proof their guy is good."

No, don't blame the media, we don't use it. You've done this all on your own. Your base hasn't moved. You have.

"The Republicans talk about cutting spending, but they increase it--a lot. They stand for making government smaller, but they keep making it bigger. They say they're concerned about our borders, but they're not securing them. And they seem to think we're slobs for worrying."


"Republicans used to be sober and tough about foreign policy, but now they're sort of romantic and full of emotionalism. They talk about cutting taxes, and they have, but the cuts are provisional, temporary. Beyond that, there's something creepy about increasing spending so much and not paying the price right away but instead rolling it over and on to our kids, and their kids."

And it will be our kids who are paying because the avalanche of illegals spawning anchor babies ain't gonna stop and they ain't gonna pay taxes either. They will drive up health care costs and suck us dry. Since they don't pay social security payroll taxes but will demand the same benefits when "injured" or too old to work, our children will have to work even longer before being able to retire. And because of this tax burden, they will not have have as much disposable income to sock away in IRA's.

And you politicians will live in comfort and ease because of the benefits you have voted yourselves while our children will struggle. You stinking hypocritical assholes.

"What's a voter to do? Maybe stay home, have the neighbors over for some barbecue, and then answer the phone when a pollster calls asking for a few minutes to answer some questions. When they get to the part about whether America is on the right track or the wrong track, boy, the voter knows the answer."

There's another option other than barbecue, but it involves gunfire. Lots of gunfire and lots of rope and nearby trees. Boiling tar is optional.

"One gets the impression party leaders, deep in their hearts, believe the base is . . . base. Unsophisticated. Primitive. Obsessed with its little issues. They're trying to educate the base. But if history is a guide, the base is about to teach them a lesson instead."

All your base are heading for the exit doors. And you're heading for the curb.

There really isn't anything else to do. Those who advocate voting the party line will only embolden the Republican leadership to ignore us even more. The Republicans have abandoned all pretext of fiscal responsibility and sovereign control of our borders.

Vote Republican because of national security? How can the Republicans claim credit for securing our national interests? The nations labeled as the Axis of Evil (remember the President's January 2002 State of the Union address where he named North Korea, Iran and Iraq?) and three other nations included by John Bolton in May 2002 (Cuba, Libya and Syria) are still allowed to immigrate here.

At the May 2002 speech, John Bolton told the Heritage Foundation that:
"States that sponsor terror and pursue WMD (weapons of mass destruction) must stop. States that renounce terror and abandon WMD can become part of our effort, but those that do not can expect to become our targets," he said."

The 2004 Yearbook of Immigration Statistics published by the Office of Immigration Statistics records the number of legal immigrants from every country in the world to the US.

From 2002 through 2004, after the President called them the Axis of Evil, the following numbers were allowed to come to the US:

Iran 18,337
Libya 6,767
Syria 484
Cuba 58,064
Total Axis of Evil immigration 83,652.

Our President had all but declared war; Bolton said that these countries "can expect to become our targets." These six nations are our enemies and yet in three years the Administration has allowed enough of their citizens into our country to populate a medium sized city. This number is almost as much as the total number of Japanese allowed to immigrate (86, 238) to the US in twenty years (1950 through 1970) - after the war was over!

I've had it. Drive these RINO's out to pasture.

Home Again

We had a great time in Saratoga Springs! The B&B was absolutely gorgeous. The city is beautiful with lots of greenery and night life. It rained Saturday but we visited museums and took a drive around the lake until it cleared up later in the afternoon. Our favorite restaurant was Sperry's on Caroline St. Had a fantastic dinner there. This is a very interesting town. The city has kept it's 19th century charm; at one time in the 1870's it had the largest hotel in the world.

We will go back again, maybe just for a day trip to see the antique car shows or visit the race tracks.

Off To Saratoga Springs

Our anniversary is this week and as a gift the kids bought us a weekend at a bed and breakfast in Saratoga Springs, about a two and a half hour drive from here. It looks like a lovely place, no?

We are leaving tomorrow morning and I can't wait. My bride of 24 years is all atwitter and aglow over this little vacation. And I stopped after work and bought her a little special "something" to go along with it.

Thanks a million for dropping by. I'll catch you all on Monday.

One For The Road

It seems like another chapter is being written in the Kennedy “The Closer You Get The Drunker He Looks” odyssey. Drudge reports that:

“Police labor union officials asked acting Chief Christopher McGaffin this afternoon to allow a Capitol Police officer to complete his investigation into an early-morning car crash involving Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), son of Sen. Ted Kennedy.”

Patrick Kennedy nearly slammed into a Capitol police cruiser and then hit a barricade at oh dark hundred hours this morning. Allegedly drunk, Kennedy staggered out of the car and told officers that he was late to a vote, even though the Congressional “last call” for voting was issued three hours earlier. Supervisors responding to the scene ordered the other cops away and Kennedy was driven home.

The story here:

If this is true, why don’t they just call themselves the Congressional Ass Puppet Police and be done with it?

I'll Tell Where You Can Park Your Burritos

Why is it that these illegals who possess no skills have such an overvalued sense of worth? Look at this burrito pounding fool. He must have spent some time in one of our "self esteem preening" public schools where it isn't what you know that makes a difference, rather it's the inner glow that comes from not knowing that your IQ is the same as the wad of chewing gum you just smeared on the bottom of your chair.

You were made for minimum wage. No one, and I mean no one, spreads the refried beans better than you.

And as you apply your craft, you'll soon be promoted to the warmer and then to the cash register. There you will perfect your skill at recognizing the pretty little pictures of tacos, gorditas, and chalupas.

I mean, really, is this the threat we now have to face? We'll have to beg the Irish to open a chain of corned beef and cabbage restaurants to satisfy Americans who crave gassy foods.

There's no thinking twice, or even once. Park that burrito where you'll need a sour cream enema for seasoning.

We don't need your stinking burritos. What we do need is to have you gone.

Over two years ago (December 2004) the Washington Times did a story on the costs in California to handle illegal aliens. Then it was "$10.5 billion a year for education, health care and incarceration...The report also said the incarceration of convicted illegal aliens in state prisons and jails and uncompensated medical outlays for health care provided to illegal aliens each amounted to about $1.4 billion annually. The incarceration costs did not include judicial expenditures or the monetary costs of the crimes committed by illegal aliens that led to their incarceration. "

Last month I posted about a report from the National Institute of Corrections that gives an indication of costs to jail illegal aliens in all 50 states for the years 2002 and 2003:

Federal prison system expended $2.9 billion
State prison systems expended $2 billion
Local jail systems expended $1.3 billion
Total expenditures estimated at $3.1 billion annually

Now there are other costs finally coming to light. Congressman Steve King, R-Iowa, recently wrote a column for the Des Moines Register. In the column he states what would happen if there was no illegal immigration:

"There would be no one to smuggle across our southern border the heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines that plague the United States, reducing the U.S. supply of meth that day by 80%.

The lives of 12 U.S. citizens would be saved who otherwise die a violent death at the hands of murderous illegal aliens each day.

Another 13 Americans would survive who are otherwise killed each day by uninsured drunk driving illegals.

Our hospital emergency rooms would not be flooded with everything from gunshot wounds, to anchor babies, to imported diseases to hangnails, giving American citizens the day off from standing in line behind illegals.

Eight American children would not suffer the horror as a victim of a sex crime."

Sounds good to me. And don't forget to take your stinking burrito with you.

RIP Tim Laun

I found out at work this morning that Capt. Tim Laun of the Syracuse PD died yesterday. I remember Tim as a rookie when he was in training; he rode with me on the City's south side. I remember the first night we worked. When the shift ended he didn't want to get out of the car. If there was a hot plate and a crapper in the back seat I think he'd still be there. We called him Mode as in mow dee lawn.

If there was anything that you could learn about Tim, it was that he loved being a cop. It was no ordinary love affair, it was a big slobbering wet kiss that he threw at the law enforcement profession every day. He was boundless in his enthusiasm and his energy; if you needed something done, he was the go to guy. His courage and integrity were unquestionable; I don't think there was a mean bone in his body. He would step on some toes and manage to piss people off every now and then, but that was Tim. His last assignment was Commanding Officer of the Special Investigations Division responsibile for narcotics and vice enforcement and he did a great job in a very tough assignment. Ironically he died Sunday while... mowing his lawn.

A Policeman's Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage;
Courage to face and conquer my own fears...
Courage to take me where others will not go.
I ask for strength;
Strength of body to protect others...
Strength of spirit to lead others.
I ask dedication;
Dedication to my job to do it well...
Dedication to my community to keep it safe.
Give me, Lord, concern;
For all those who trust me...
And compassion for those who need me
And, please, Lord, through it all;
Be at my side.

Goodbye Tim.

Bitch Slappin'

That kabbalah ass klown, Madonna, AKA Barbara Streisand Lite, really needs to be bitch slapped like a red-headed step child. In the midst of one of her concerts yesterday in California, this talentless waste of breath screamed to the audience that they could travel to Texas to perform an obscene sex act on the President. I refuse to post that kind of language.

Perhaps the early onset of menopause (she'll be 48 this August) could be an excuse for this, but it sounds like a typical Bush Derangement Syndrome event. I wonder if she kissed her children good night with that same mouth.
