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.

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.


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




But you can still contact him and tell him what an asshole he is.

Hey, Al Gore --- Incoming!

From 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.

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.

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.
