Need Help Housing Milblogger's Hounds

Trevor at Will to Exist has been deployed to Iraq and needs some help finding some homes for his hounds. Check these pooches out and get in touch with Trevor if interested. Thanks to The Gunn Nutt for the post that brought this to my attention.

Unfortunately I'm not in a position to take one of these cute pups on myself at this time but this is the least I can do.

Aren't they cute?!?!

My Black Widow

I recently drained and put away our little 14' rubber swimming pool that we put out on the back patio for the kids to drown each other in.

After having stored it in our garage for a few days I noticed that my pool filter pump had a new resident.

A black widow, was enjoying the damp dark open space provided by the motor at the bottom of the pump. She was setting up her lair of death in my garage.

I love watching animals behave. This black widow seemed to be able to sense mood. She scampered off when we were introduced only when I finally came to the realization that it was a freaking black widow! Those preceding moments before I came to that realization she just stared back at me. She was in the midst of weaving her web at the bottom of my aluminum ladder right next to the filter pump.

I for some reason, left it alone. I wasn't going to tell my wife about it just yet.

The next morning I saw her again continuing to weave her trap underneath the first step of my ladder. I knew we would have to deal with each other very very soon. I can't let a black widow live in my garage. I love most other spiders because they keep my house relatively insect free.

I don't mind swallowing 4 of them suckers a year if I don't have to keep on spraying the house with chemicals to keep the ants and roaches at bay. Just a bit o'protein right? I've ingested worse.

But she had to go just so I can avoid the moment when my 3 year old boy find it and comes in from the garage to tell me, "Daaaaad, I wuv dis p'idah fo-evah", right before it sinks it's venom into his hand.

Not happenin on my watch!

I took out the garbage tonight and saw her for the third time in 24 hours. This time she continued weaving figuring she's got me whipped. I reached over behind the ladder to the bench a white towel that was covering a 5 gallon bucket. As I pulled the towel toward me and opened it up to swallow Ms Widow up into it, she bolted to her lair beneath the pump.

I had to take care of things, can't let her have any babies in my garage. I took the pump out into the driveway under moonlight (and that annoying beam shot up through the top of the Luxor) and grabbed my leather gloves.

I knocked on my neighbor's door to see if he was there. The house was dark so I knew chances were that they were out. He is the neighbor who knows everything. A bit of Mr. Wizard meets Tim the tool-man Taylor. He doesn't spray his house for insects at all, he has 4 praying mantis who live on each corner of his property. He tells me that this is all he needs to keep his house completely insect free. I figured he would know way too much about black widows.

I turned the pump over and saw her furry lair with her murdered mate. She has already done the deed but I'm almost positive that there have been no eggs yet. Well, then came the gloves and the towel... the rest is history.

No vacancy for black widows...
Gotta keep this place clean for the patrons...

Islamic Marriage Councellor

An Islamic guide on how to beat your wife
MADRID -- An imam who wrote a book on how to beat your wife without leaving marks on her body has been ordered by a judge in Spain to study the country's constitution.
Hmmm... how long until the Spanish version of our 1st Amendment gets analyzed to the point of justifying this Imam?
The judge told Mohamed Kamal Mustafa, imam of a mosque in the southern resort of Fuengirola, to spend six months studying three articles of the constitution and the universal declaration of human rights.

Mr. Mustafa was sentenced to 15 months in jail and fined about $2,600 last year after being found guilty of inciting violence against women.

A judge released him after 22 days in jail on the condition that he undertake a re-education course.
Hey, that's brainwashing! How insensitive to his cultural heritage!
The Spanish government has set up a commission to find ways for the Muslim community to regulate itself. A central recommendation is that imams speak Spanish and have a basic knowledge of human rights and Spanish law.
Wow, what guts, make the guy learn the laws of the land?

Learn the language?

Learn how to behave like a civilized human being?

I have a feeling that some defense lawyer is going to characterize these common sense demands as outrageous!
In his book "Women in Islam," published four years ago, Mr. Mustafa wrote that verbal warnings followed by a period of sexual inactivity could be used to discipline a disobedient wife.
Sounds like roll reversal...
If that failed, he argued that, according to Islamic law, beatings could be judiciously administered.

"The blows should be concentrated on the hands and feet using a rod that is thin and light so that it does not leave scars or bruises on the body," he wrote.
Wouldn't want to leave bruises of course, how tolerant and kind of this preacher of the religion of Peace!


Uttering a forged instrument?

Ok, cruising the news stories I was impressed with this headline:
Man 27, Poses as High School Student to Learn English.
I'm thinkin, here's a real go-getter! He's going to get out there any way he can to learn English so he can obviously better himself and his family. Somewhat inspirational no?

Ok, not really, there's plenty of other ways to learn English... but this isn't what made me post this story... Here is the lead paragraph, you can check for yourself because at the moment I'm feeling pretty dumb.
TRINITY, Fla. -- A 27-year-old Guatemalan man arrested for posing as an 18-year-old Pasco County high school student told authorities he enrolled because he wanted to learn English and get a good education.

Josue Oswaldo Ramirez-Mejia was arrested Tuesday and charged with uttering a forged instrument. He was being held on $5,000 bail.
Are there any lawyers in the house? Perhaps one of those that I challenged at an earlier time and place?

I'm truly stumped, what exactly is being charged with 'uttering a forged instrument.'

Sounds like this writer needs to brush up on the ole high school English herself.
Ramirez-Mejia used forged documents, including a Guatemalan birth certificate stating his birthday as Jan. 3, 1987, to enroll last month at J.W. Mitchell High School, officials said.
Ahh, 'uttering forged instruments' = 'used forged documents'

Hey, if Dan Rather can get away with it why can't this guy learn a little English?
Someone also posed as his guardian, according to the sheriff's office.

"Everything seemed to be in place," said Jim Davis, an assistant superintendent with the school district.

Ramirez-Mejia was a good student and hadn't caused any problems, Davis said.

Officials learned Ramirez-Mejia's real age Tuesday after he lost his wallet during a physical education class.
How awful would that be, being 27 and in PE with a bunch of dopey 18 year olds!
The FBI told sheriff's investigators that Ramirez-Mejia entered the United States illegally after being denied entry.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has begun deportment proceedings, Tampa-based spokeswoman Pam McCullough said.
Doh, case closed... ya gotta get here legally me amigo... sure am impressed by the effort tho!

Better luck next time... what a story.

Windy Cindy's Skills to pay Bills

The pacifist's cheerleader needs to pay bills too! According to Cyber News Service:
Sheehan said her contract with Speaking Matters, which has not yet disclosed how much an appearance will cost, will help her "finally make some money ...'cause Casey's insurance money's going to run out pretty soon." See Video
The one thing this woman is skilled at is making ignorant statements. Guess her son's gravy train is running low.
One student who supports Sheehan's activism said she thinks "it's admirable that she's not making any money, it shows that her incentives are true."
True incentives does not an admirable woman make, you lemming! I can think of lots of evil people throughout history who had 'True Incentives'... sure as hell didn't make them right!
Megan Hanford, said it makes sense that Sheehan would start charging for appearances. "She can't work while she's traveling the country," Hanford said, "and she's lost any income that her son might have brought her."
Is this why she is so vehemently spewing hatred with her ignorant rhetoric? So she can replace the income her son was providing? Naaa, she's not that smart.

When is this woman going to realize that she is a cheap PR tool for the radical lefties who typically spend millions of dollars to get their messages out on deaf ears? They're now able to pay a little bit of money to get loads of press coverage through this lady.

Colombia's Coke Dilemma

Associated Press Writer


Cocaine is killing the great nature parks of Colombia.

Government spraying of coca plant killer is driving growers and traffickers out of their usual territory into national parks where spraying is banned. Here they are burning thousands of acres of virgin rain forest and poisoning rivers with chemicals.

Now the government faces a painful dilemma: to spray weedkiller would be devastating, but the impact of coca-growing is increasingly destructive. The question is, which is worse?
Hmmm, which would be worse...
Weedkiller or Cocaine... Weedkiller, Cocaine...

Yeah, that is quite the dilemma!
Colombia is home to about 15 percent of all the world's plant species and one of its most diverse arrays of amphibians, mammals and birds. Dozens of species that populate its jungles and Andes mountains exist nowhere else on the planet. One of the richest is the Sierra Macarena National Park, where monkeys clamber across the jungle canopy and seven species of big cat prowl in its shadows.
Big coked up kittys and junked out monkeys is a much better alternative than spraying a little weedkiller! It's all so clear!
But Sierra Macarena is most threatened by cocaine. A recent flight over part of its 1.6 million acres revealed a trail of ugly gashes and charred trunks of trees felled by coca planters. The intruders also have built dozens of makeshift drug labs in the park and in the nearby village of Puerto Arturo, bringing in tons of gasoline, cement, hydrochloric acid and other toxic chemicals to process the coca leaves into cocaine. All of it pollutes the rivers and soil.

Hmmm... Weed killer or cocaine...

If this stuff gets into the Amazon river could you imagine the effect on the anacondas? Pretty soon there's going to be a competition between Italy's Po River and the Amazon to see which whacked out river produces the most jacked up animal.

The Magic of the Irish

One of my favorite movies of all time is Rudy. There is just something about the mystique and lore of Notre Dame football that has always captured my imagination. I was never big enough to play football but everyday I would dream of playing for the Irish when I was a little kid.

I wasn't much of an Irish fan in college however, Syracuse held my fascination at that period of time, as they still do... c'mon Perry Patterson, you can play just a bit less stiff and Damien Rhodes needs the ball on every play...
but I digress.

There is a reason that Notre Dame is great. It's because of stories like these;
From the Seattle Times:
After Craig Chambers fumbled at the 1-yard-line Saturday and the Huskies started lamenting an opportunity lost, Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis began thinking of a promise made.

Weis revealed yesterday during his regular day-after news conference that he had met with a 10-year-old Notre Dame fan on Wednesday who was suffering from inoperable brain cancer, and that the boy had asked him to pass on the first play against UW.

The boy, Montana Mazurkiewicz of Mishawaka, Ind., died Friday, something Weis learned after the Irish arrived in Seattle.

Weis didn't hesitate to follow through on Montana's request, even though the Irish started its first possession of the game at its 1-yard-line following the UW turnover.

The play, a pass from quarterback Brady Quinn to tight end Anthony Fasano, turned into a 13-yard gain in a game Notre Dame won 36-17.

"I sat there with the kid and talked with him about Notre Dame football, how he just wanted to make it through this week so he could watch that game," Weis said of his Wednesday meeting. "He knew he was not going to last very much longer."

"To watch a 10-year-old only get a smile on his face because of his passion and love for Notre Dame football, it was a good moral for our players," Weis said. "It brings you back down to Earth to realize how important it is to wear that jersey."
You gotta love the Irish, sorry Wyatt! But how fitting a first post on this site with just a hint o'irish flavor...

My New Look Coming to a Monitor Near You!

Jaden Kale has hooked me up with a new lay-out and look that is going to make those of you who are kindly visiting me a bit more comfortable and at home. I can't thank her enough for the work that she's done on it, all for the love of the game! Be sure to swing by her site (and especially her store which I FULLY endorse featuring "Stuck on Stupid" gear) Gotta love it!

Being the blogging rookie I am tho and my lack of a grasp on what I'm doing, with exception of running my mouth, hopefully the transition will be smooth.

I'm looking forward to showing it off, thanks so much Jaden!

Comic Relief

Thank you Tyler D for this bit o'comic relief... I got myself just a little rialed up lastnight reading about... nevermind *deep breath*...

When I feel myself ready to wrap my hands around a moonbat's neck when I watch them on TV this weekend, I'll just click on this madness and laugh my behind off.

I totally needed that Tyler!


Cannon Fodder

Isn't it amazing that on the eve of what the lefties have been claiming will be the largest protest on Capitol Hill a story would come out that one of our most esteemed and respected Army units, the 82nd Airborne, would have accusations hurled at it by a 'Human Rights Watch'?

From one of the faithful, the Boston Globe *snort*:

Army opens new abuse probe
Soldier says Iraq inmates targeted
By Lolita C. Baldor, Associated Press September 24, 2005

WASHINGTON -- The Army has opened an investigation into a Fort Bragg soldier's allegations that he witnessed and heard about widespread prisoner abuse, including torture and a beating with a baseball bat, while serving at a base in Iraq.

Sign up for: Globe Headlines e-mail Breaking News Alerts The announcement was made yesterday as Human Rights Watch prepared to release a report on three 82d Airborne Division soldiers' accounts of prisoners being beaten, forced to hold 5-gallon jugs of water in their outstretched arms, and denied sleep, food, and water.
Does anyone see a real problem with this? I have a feeling that if I've been in Iraq for the last couple years and have seen friends blown up by those who claim to be good citizens, those who drop IED's along the side of the road to detach my brother's limbs from his body and we had some detainees who may have some knowledge of something... consider that Iraqi's ass kicked.

I'm sick of this constant insinuation that in this current situation (A WAR!) that some heads getting kicked in is something unacceptable. What matters to me that it's OUR guys doing the ass kicking and not our guys being tortured because I'll tell you what, if our enemy had the situation in their favor guess what horrors our Men would have to endure? What side are you really on? There's no middle of the road with this issue.

If I'm out of bounds here and these accusations turn out to be true, guess what, nothing I just said changes.

Besides, anyone who does evil acts on those who are innocent I believe will be brought to justice by his peers. If not his peers, then by God Almighty during Judgement Day.

You know why I believe that? Because those who freely chose to be in one of the groups of elite soldiers are people of a particular caliber. I personally know someone very close to me who was a member of the 82nd Airborne and I consider that man an American Hero. He is also a man of a particular caliber who would not stand to see this happen in his sight because he is a man of high character, morals, and loyalty. The random occurrence of beatings of captured enemy in the theatre of war is going to happen because it's a freaking war... tensions are high, lives are at stake.


The Human Rights Watch report detailed severe, routine beatings of detainees by the 82d Airborne Division.
Who exactly are these 'Human Watch People' really? Are they accountable for the accusations they make? If the accusations are found to be untrue, are sedition charges pressed on them?

The answer is no. These Human Watch people are there to do NOTHING but cast doubt upon the American Public as well as cause embarrassment.

Done no less on an eve of a weekend of supposed record numbers of people to come out and protest the War on Terror. Aren't they so brave.

Even if you are against the War on Terror, can you explain to me how this type of reporting, reacting, irrationality helps a damn thing? Even in your favor? Do you think handcuffing our soldiers as a response is going to make them any safer? No, more arms and legs and heads are going to be blown off because one of those creeps who would have been beaten down is going to explode a homemade/suicide bomb. Is that what you need to continue on your little self righteous escapade to make you feel like you've accomplished something?

Arrrrgghh... this story has gotten me riled up...

Nigerian Nightmare

With the results of Hurricane Katrina and now Hurricane Rita on the verge of driving up gas prices, not to mention the instability in Venezuelan leadership, we have this happening as I type in Nigeria.
ABUJA, Nigeria, Sept. 22 -- Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, a separatist leader in Nigeria's oil-producing south, was brought before a federal court here Thursday on charges of treason--a crime that carries the death penalty--while his angry followers reportedly seized at least one facility that controls oil pipeline flows.

The confrontation between Nigerian authorities and radical activists from the impoverished Niger Delta could put new pressure on global oil prices at a time when the destruction from Hurricane Katrina in the United States already is pushing prices toward historic highs.

In the delta, activists took control of at least one oil flow station, owned by the U.S. oil firm Chevron, and threatened more disruption. Police have sent reinforcements to Port Harcourt, the delta's largest city. Royal Dutch Shell, the region's largest oil company, evacuated nonessential staff.

Alali Horsfall, Dokubo-Asari's second-in-command in the Niger Delta People's Volunteer Force, said by cell phone Thursday that he and a force of 6,000 men, armed with machetes and dynamite, had taken over 10 oil flow stations and would not abandon them until their leader was freed from custody.
The dictatorial madness happening all over the African Continent is a future powder keg with lots of sparks, in the form of Islamic radicalism, flying around. Considering the oil that these dictators have allowed us to pump from their countries and the attitude of the Islamic radical leaders in the area attempting to wrestle control of these pipelines, this situation is yet another soon to blow.

Are we going to again have to put up with these dictators to protect our assets? This scenario tends to have negative results. The alternative is to quell yet another radical uprising with our military that is already being stretched to the breaking point.

This could be an area to involve the brave French troops considering their influence in the area but how reliable is their help?

I have a feeling that we're soon to find out.


Soldiers Shaken by Sights of Spirits

The bay area CBS News affiliate ran a story on National Guard Soldiers bumping into ghosts as they clear out flooded areas of New Orleans. Check out the video clip.

The part of the video of them finding an open Bible on the shoreline where boats were tossed like matchsticks gave me the shivers, particularly the page they found it open on.

A couple days ago GOP and the City posted an article about the Bell Witch that made my forearm hair stand on end.

I've had a few experiences when I was a kid of sensations of the supernatural. One year my step-grandparents were having a family get together on a cold night between the holidays and we were all in the family room flappin our jaws over tea. I was 14 years old.

After everyone else left and we were preparing to leave I went to the coat closet to grab my winter coat to protect me from the -15 degree wind chills outside. Adjacent to the coat closet was a doorway leading to the stairs leading upstairs as well as downstairs to the basement. While I'm standing there a cool rush of air seemed to breath through the door leading to the stairs and I got goosebumps. When my attention was attracted to the doorway leading to those stairs I heard the unmistakable sound of someone slipping and rolling down the stairs from the second floor to the floor I was on and hitting every stair on the way down.

Immediately I thought that Maggie (the live in housekeeper who resided on the third floor) had just bit the dust! I reached inside the dark doorway and flipped on the light and looked down at the base of the ascending stairs. Nothing...

I looked around to my left where the descending stairs where and there was nothing there either. I ran back to the family room where my family began to get up to get ready to leave and told them what I heard and asked if Maggie had gone to bed yet. Just then she walks around the corner with a tray of empty tea cups and asked what I needed.

I told Maggie and my grandparents what I had just heard as they all looked at each other knowingly. My family didn't seem interested and continued on to the coat closet. When they had left the room Janet, my gramma, relayed to me a story of a small girl that they assumed was no older than 3 years old whose death was the result of a nasty fall down the flight of stairs between the second and first floors.

The thick Scottish brogue that they used to relay the story made the goosebumps on my arms seem as if they were attempting to jump off my skin but I wasn't really scared, more sad, and extrememly aware of my surroundings. They told me that now and then on cold winter nights they'll hear that sound and pray that it was the ghost and not little ole Maggie doing some last minute housekeeping.

Every fiber of my being knew that the story was true and I felt so bad for the poor spirit that seemed trapped between here and the next life as well as between the second and first floors of that old enormous house in Upstate NY.

Allright y'all hit me with your stories... I know there's more of them out there. I've been trying to cull a story out of one of my cousins who grew up in the same area, about a UFO encounter that he seems to keep bound to secrecy. Hopefully he'll stop by and finally decide to share it with me!

There's no doubt in my mind that there's more than meets the eye when it comes to the fully integrated spiritual realm that we're somewhat (but apparently not always) blinded to.

Judge Busted for Banging his 'Gavel'

Just as the Nun's Habit has a sordid historical origin,
can we now associate the Judge's black robe along the same lines??

Justice rears it's ugly head;

From the Washington Post:
Jurors Will See Judge's Alleged Sex Toy

Thompson, 58, who spent more than 20 years on the bench before stepping down more than a year ago, faces three counts of indecent exposure.

Prosecutors allege he masturbated with a penis pump under his robe while presiding over two murder trials and a civil trial in 2003. Thompson denies the allegations and said the penis pump seized in the case was a gag gift from a friend.
This should have quite parade of trial evidence eh?

I expect a spike in CourtTV's ratings in the near future...
Brewster [the Judge's lawyer] had sought to have much of Tuesday's motions sealed, arguing that they contained anecdotal remarks from hundreds of people "with literally crazy things to say." He said media coverage of the hearing could taint potential jurors.
Perhaps because this is a crazy freakin case?!
"Because we've got a public figure, we want to vilify," he said.
No because we have a sick judge who liberally bangs the gavel... Duh.


"Stuck on Stupid"

(Click on picture to run video of this man putting retards in their place)

Can this guy run for President?? This is who we need to lead, someone who isn't afraid to put dopey one dimensional reporters where they belong.

'Stuck on Stupid'

Is this not the best campaign slogan you've ever heard???

Thanks to The Political Teen for the link/video!

The Gunn Nutt has a list of those 'Stuck on Stupid'.

This could be the phrase of the year.

Buy your 'Stuck on Stupid' gear here... yeah didn't take long eh? Jaden is on the ball!


Yankees Retake 1st

This is the best time of the year. Football is finally here and the best part of the baseball season is in full swing.

I am a diehard Yankees fan and no smack about jumping on any bandwagons. I've been listening to them on the radio since I was a kid and I still prefer to listen to baseball on the radio.

I was their fan when they were the worst team in baseball throughout the early to mid 80's and Don Mattingly was my hero, mullet and all.

October approaches and the Yankees and Red Sox are in an all out battle for 1st place. The final series for each team is against the other... it doesn't get any better than this!

No losing 4 in a row after going up 3-0 this year baby!

Slick Willy Condoms

You all knew it was going to happen eventually; (from WND)
The names of former President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, the intern who had sex with the commander in chief, will be attached to a new line of condoms.

According to a report in the Mainichi Daily News, a contraceptive company in China has begun marketing condoms under the brand names Clinton and Lewinsky, "apparently seeking to exploit the White House affair that led to the impeachment of America's 42nd president."
Apparently there are going to be different levels of quality amongst these 'brand' name condoms;
"The Clinton condom will be the top of our line," said Liu Wenhua of the Guangzhou Rubber Group. "The Lewinsky condom is not quite as good."
Guess the Lewinsky tends to leak? Oh, and check out these Blow Out prices!
A box of 12 with Clinton's name will sell for about $3.72, with the Lewinsky version going for $2.35.

"The names we chose are symbols of people who are responsible and dedicated to their jobs," Liu said. "I believe Bill Clinton cannot be unhappy about this because he's a very generous man."
Well, I can understand why the Chinese would consider Clinton a very generous man...

Just make sure you also get your hands on some spot remover towelettes just incase the Lewinsky leaks...

Partying with Pagans

I'm a fan of WorldNetDaily for breaking controversial news with a Christian perspective...

Sometimes a story rolls through that site that is just retarded. Prime example;

Christians pray to counter 'Pagan Pride Day'
Christians in San Diego are being summoned for "emergency" prayer and fasting to counter the "Pagan Pride" event scheduled for today in the seaside city.
Now what exactly is so dangerous about these people?

Wouldn't serious Christians reserve their 'emergency' prayers for more critical causes?

I mean, c'mon... there are causes, and there are stupid reasons for people to throw a shindig in a local park where they can spray paint on their bedsheets, jam out on their bongos, pimp their schwag(not to be confused with DPT swag), and dress up in costumes that tend to reside in the attic chest until Halloween season. So they get a couple extra opportunities to don their garb... so what?

Look at the bright side, you may get a glimpse of a merry Carrie the green grass fairy giving thanks for the green stuff, or is hairy Jerry the wreath making fairy too abominable for God's eyes? They really can't be all that evil can they?

Christians who make a big deal out of this are a wee bit too funda-mental.
How dangerous can they really be?

Is There an ACLU Lawyer in the House?

Here we go... which one of you studs from Columbia or NYU want to take this one on eh? (As if any of them brainiacs have the smarts to read my blog)

I got the perfect plan...

Let's set up a competition between an ACLU Lawyer from Columbia vs. an ACLU Lawyer from NYU. I've got the perfect case and it's hot off the wires.

I'm sure this kid's phone is ringing off the hook...
Student Arrested After Pilot Uniform Found
The Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A university student from Egypt was ordered held without bond after prosecutors said they found a pilot's uniform, chart of Memphis International Airport and a DVD titled "How an Airline Captain Should Look and Act" in his apartment.

The FBI is investigating whether Mahmoud Maawad, 29, had any connection to terrorists. He is awaiting trial on charges of wire fraud and fraudulent use of a Social Security number.

Maawad, who is in the United States illegally, told the judge during a hearing Thursday that he is studying science and economics at the University of Memphis.

"My school is everything. I stay in this country for seven years; I stay for the school," he said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve Parker said Thursday that the airport-related items were found during a Sept. 9 search.

"The specific facts and circumstances are scary," Parker said.

U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Thomas Anderson ruled that Maawad be held without bond.

"It is hard for the court to understand why he has a large concentration of those (aviation) items, and nothing else to indicate Mr. Maawad plans to stay in the community," Anderson said.

Maawad had ordered $3,000 in aviation materials, including DVDs titled "Ups and Downs of Takeoffs and Landings," "Airplane Talk," "Mental Math for Pilots" and "Mastering GPS Flying," FBI agent Thad Gulczynski testified.

The company reported Maawad to authorities when he didn't pay for $2,500 of merchandise it had delivered, Gulczynski said.
Does it get any better than this?

Who wants to be the hero?
C'mon... be the next reality show star!

Just think of all the Press you'll get!! PERFECT!

Guilty on All Counts

Hayward, Wis. — (AP) - A jury found a Hmong American guilty Friday of murdering six deer hunters and wounding two others during a confrontation over trespassing, rejecting his claims he shot in self-defense after one hunter used racial slurs and another fired at him.

The two survivors of the shooting had testified the white hunters never shot at Chai Soua Vang before he opened fire on them, after they confronted him about trespassing in a tree stand on their private property in some isolated northwestern Wisconsin woods Nov. 21.

Vang, dressed in a business suit with family members seated behind him, showed no visible emotion as the judge read the verdict.
There must not be much to do up there in ole Hayward seeing how they were selecting a jury only a week ago. Don't fret, I'm sure this is far from over;
Outside the court, one of his friends, Pofwmyeh Yang, questioned the jury's makeup and maintained Vang was innocent.

"All Caucasian, all American. Why can't there be one Hmong? Why can't there be one minority in there?" Yang said. "I believe only one person can judge, and that's God. But God didn't judge today."

Vang's sister, Chou Vang, said the jury's short deliberations were not fair to her brother.

"Everyone was white. They do not understand. They will never understand what my brother went through out there," she said. "He was not a dog to sit there and let them shoot at him. He was proud of who he is."
Isn't it possible that the deliberations were short because this was a pretty much open and shut case? Granted the guy probably had some racial slurs hurled at him and perhaps a shot was fired. Does that justify killing 6 people by shooting them in the back multiple times?
The two shooting survivors testified one of them fired at Vang, but only after he was wounded and some of his companions were dying. Vang maintained he was frightened for his life and fired after someone else shot first.

The youngest victim, Crotteau's 20-year-old son, Joey, was shot four times in the back and side. Three other victims were shot in the back, some multiple times.
Jury didn't need long to decide, obviously because they were a bunch of crackers who didn't want to miss the bowling tournament this weekend...
The jury deliberated about three hours before reaching a verdict of guilty on six counts of first-degree intentional homicide and three counts of attempted homicide. Vang, a 36-year-old truck driver from St. Paul, Minn., faces mandatory life in prison. Wisconsin does not have the death penalty.
I hope this is the end of the case, this guys mug is too freaky to keep showing on my site...

Hurricane Relief?

Ok, you've lost all you have, house is covered in mold, you have no money...
Hurricane Katrina destroyed all you have left...

FEMA comes along (finally) and hands out debit cards with $2,000 in cash available to use as you see fit. Where do you go? The Strip Club of course!

From WorldNetDaily:
On the heels of a report earlier this week that Atlanta area Katrina victims were using $2,000 debit cards to purchase luxury items like Louis Vuitton handbags, Houston police yesterday discovered the cards, provided by FEMA and the Red Cross, being used at local strip clubs.

The Houston Police Department just formed a task force to investigate the abuse of the cards, which were distributed to thousands of Katrina hurricane victims to provide for necessities, such as food, clothing and toiletries. On the first day, the police found the cards being used to buy beer while ogling exotic dancers.

According to a report by KPRC, Channel 2, in Houston, a manager at Caligula XXI Gentlemen's Club said he has seen at least one debit card used at his club. A bartender at Baby Dolls, identified only as "Abby," said she has seen many of the cards used at her establishment.

"A lot of customers have been coming in from Louisiana and they've been real happy about the $1.75 beers and they're really nice," she said.
Yeah, I'd be real nice too if I had a free 2 grand to blow on strippers! Where exactly to you swipe a debit card on a stripper? Well, I can think of a couple places but... Nevermind... where do you punch your pin # and where does your reciept come out?

-Have Breakfast at Basil's, buy swag with your debit cards at Dr Phat Tony's!


Bolton Bumrushing Beaurocrats

To those who thought that the recess appointment of John Bolton as top US diplomat to the UN was going to create chaos, the recent proceedings at the current UN summit proves otherwise.

He's proven to be quite flexible despite his rigid demeanor and the media hype, not to mention the moonbat lefty bloggers who insisted that he would further isolate US policy from the rest of the world, which portrayed him as a trigger happy fly off the handle yosemite sam type.

When that accusation was made, I jumped for joy. It was about time someone from the US went into the UN to clean house. There's no doubt that the place is as corrupt as Louisiana's Statehouse.

The Telegraph announces that:
After years of paying out, the party is over
By Francis Harris

For decades America has treated the United Nations like a difficult adolescent. The UN filled its debating chambers with anti-American rhetoric and fired off a stream of angry resolutions supporting gun-toting liberation movements.

Mr Bolton, like many US conservatives, notes that Washington is paying 23 per cent of the UN's bills. Its $3 billion (£1.7 billion) a year contribution funds 48 per cent of the UN's World Food Programme and 41 per cent of the UN High Commission for Refugees.

America feels that its dollars buy it the right to make the case for reform. Only last week the UN was described as incompetent, corrupt and in urgent need of change by the Volcker commission, the organisation's own report into the Iraqi oil-for-food scandal.

Elsewhere in the organisation, Washington looks on enraged as countries such as China and Cuba are voted on to the UN's human rights commission. America is appalled too by the UN bureaucracy, where staff are appointed according to nationality and where pay aims to match that of the most generous member state.

Yet few UN civil servants are ever held to account, as the oil-for-food report underlined. Even before it was published, Kofi Annan, the UN secretary general, said: "I don't anticipate anyone resigning." No one did, despite blistering attacks on named staff including Mr Annan himself.
Yeah, the current UN Summit is still talking about fighting Terrorism.

The fact that Kofi Annan has yet to be forced out of his position is further proof of UN's incestuous relationships.

I've long advocated the removal of the UN's Headquarters from NYC to be restationed in it's field of dreams... Paris.

No God for Newdow

Here we go again...

Michael Newdow is at it again with a zealous fervor to have anything referring to God removed from the public eye. His first go-round was dropped by the Supreme Court because he wasn't his child's official guardian. How courageous of you Supremes. Newdow recruited two other 'parents' to push the issue for him. Now round 2 begins with Newdow as the early winner. The Supremes are going to have to deal with this issue once and for all in the near future.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:
Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools is unconstitutional, a federal court judge ruled today, saying that the pledge’s reference to “under God” violated school children’s right to be “free from a coercive requirement to affirm God.”

The suit is the second by Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow, who has been trying for five years to remove the pledge from public classrooms.

The Washington, D.C.-based Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a party to the case, immediately announced that it would appeal the decision to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

That court already ruled in favor of Newdow’s cause in 2002, but the case was later dismissed by the U.S. Supreme Court.

In deciding the current case, U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton in Sacramento said he was bound by the Court of Appeals’ previous decision.

Karlton said he would sign a restraining order prohibiting the recitation of the pledge at Elk Grove Unified, Rio Linda and Elverta Joint Elementary school districts, where the children of Newdow and his fellow plaintiffs are enrolled.
Does anyone else see the involvement of Rio Linda as ironic as I do?

I've said pretty much all I had to say on this issue in one of my previous posts...

Roberts Seat in Sight

(Photo from Reuters)

This look appeared on Judge Roberts face as Sen. Joe Biden (D-DE) entered the room with his abnormally large ego in tow.

After this initial shock, Roberts seems pretty cool and collected as he deflected and danced around direct questions in Ginsburg like fashion.

Confirmation should occur at the end of this week.

The Gloves are Coming Off

Pentagon Revises Nuclear Strike Plan
Strategy Includes Preemptive Use Against Banned Weapons
I figured that this would already be status quo but apparently it had to be laid out by the Pentagon as if to remind us that we have the damn things and that we should be prepared to use them if necessary... Duh!

See the official Doctrine for Joint Nuclear Operations (PDF form) here...

Uhh, don't we maintain a stockpile of nukes to threaten psych-wads running rogue nations? Apparently they don't believe we have the will to use them. Perhaps this will make us sound a wee bit more serious about defending our nation.

Not that I believe that they NEED to be used but it sure seems as if there was a reason we kept them around. Sure, they were initially developed because if we didn't the Germans, Japanese, or Soviets would have had them first and surely used them to subdue our nation (a fact a former college history teacher at UNM couldn't grasp in her hazed out hippy brain) But what good are they for defending our nation from nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons if our military is unwilling to use them?

It seems as if the gloves are coming off and Uncle Sam's temper is wearing thin... it's about time if you ask me.

Hall Of Famer

For 29 years as Head Coach of the Syracuse Basketball team, Jim Boeheim has been inducted into

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

I grew up in the same small Upstate NY town of Lyons where he was a local hero as well as one of the influences in my decision to go to Syracuse University after High School.

Having been a victim of Upstate NY sports heartbreaks being a Buffalo Bills & Sabres fan, Jim Boeheim had the ability to get us excited for the March Madness season every year. He also was able to attract some of the country's best players to play basketball at a school that is buried in 5 feet of snow for 6 months out of the year. No small task.

His philanthropic work is just as legendary as his 2-3 Zone Defense.

Congrats Jim, you deserve it! See video here...

I Got Friends in Low Places...

Berger to pay $50,000 for taking classified material
— A judge on Thursday ordered Sandy Berger, President Clinton's national security adviser, to pay a $50,000 fine for illegally taking classified documents from the National Archives.
The punishment handed down by U.S. Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson exceeded the $10,000 fine recommended by government lawyers. Under the deal, Berger avoids prison time but he must surrender access to classified government materials for three years.

"The court finds the fine is inadequate because it doesn't reflect the seriousness of the offense," Robinson said, as a grim-faced Berger stood silently.

Earlier in the hearing, Berger expressed remorse for his crime, which he described as a lapse of judgment that came while he was preparing to testify before the Sept. 11 commission.

"I let considerations of personal convenience override clear rules of handling classified material," Berger said. "I believe this lapse, serious as it is, does not reflect the character of myself."

"In this case, I failed. I will not again," he said.
'The stench from the bench is making me clench' --Savage

Sandy obviously picked up excellent skills from working close to his buddy Slick Willy. This offense is as grievous as the one perpetrated during Watergate yet there seems to be no repercussions because of his party affiliation.

If this isn't proof of the dangerous emergence of an Oligarchy then I'm going insane... which isn't impossible, especially in light of stories such as these.

Jury Selection for Vang

Almost a year ago this story surfaced about the Hmong immigrant who killed 6 hunters and severely hurt 2 others in a hunting skirmish in Wisconsin.

The Mainstream Media seemed completely hands off of the story, perhaps because of his race? (Is this not how racism is defined?) Yet, had it been one of those lilly white boys up in Northern Wisconsin, dude would be a household name as the MSM would drill it into our heads constantly for 24 hours a day.

Apparently immigrants are exempt from committing so called hate crimes (despite the fact that a couple of the guys he killed were hunted down and shot in the back!)

ROBERT IMRIE from The Associated Press reports from Hayward, WI:
A year after six deer hunters were shot to death in a confrontation with a Hmong immigrant, jurors are being selected in a college town 300 miles to the south of this north woods community.

Eyewitnesses and friends of the dead man portray the slayings as cold-blooded, while the defendant says he was shot at first and acted in self-defense after the hunters tormented him with profanity and racial insults.
Can you imagine justifying hunting people down and shooting them in the back because of profane insults? There wouldn't be a whole lot of people left walking around.

Not only that but they're going to bring in jurors from the most 'liberal' area of Wisconsin, Madison, because you know those crackers in N. WI. just ain't got no sense eh? *rolling my eyes*
Jury selection was moved to Dane County- home of the state Capitol and the University of Wisconsin-Madison because of concern about pretrial publicity and possible racial animosity. The jurors will be bused to Hayward for testimony.
Had this been said about any other community besides a predominantly white one, it would be considered racist in itself! Would anyone like a shot of Double Standard on the house?
Vang told authorities the white hunters used racial slurs before Willers fired the first shot as Vang walked away, with the bullet hitting the ground 30 to 40 feet behind him, court records said. By Vang's account, he fired 10 to 13 shots from his semiautomatic rifle. Willers was one of two hunters who was wounded but survived.

The only threat from the hunters, the survivors said, was their promise to report Vang to state game wardens for trespassing. And the only shot fired at Vang, they said, was fired by Hesebeck after he was already wounded and some of his friends lay dead or dying.

People in Rice Lake want closure to the tragedy, Jarvela said.

"I got to believe that if those guys wanted to fire on him with the intent of hurting him, they wouldn't have missed," Jarvela said. "Even if they did shoot, it would have been on the ground or in the air just to scare him possibly. They said they didn't fire. So that's good enough for me."
Updates will follow as story continues to develop.

No Peeking!

From the Jerusalem Post we have this warming story
...Muslims ransack Christian village

Efforts were under way on Sunday to calm the situation in this Christian village east of Ramallah after an attack by hundreds of Muslim men from nearby villages left many houses and vehicles torched.

The incident began on Saturday night and lasted until early Sunday, when Palestinian Authority security forces interfered to disperse the attackers. Residents said several houses were looted and many families were forced to flee to Ramallah and other Christian villages, although no one was injured.
What, the PA 'interfered to disperse the attackers' to show them which houses have yet to be torched?
The attack on the village of 1,500 was triggered by the murder of a Muslim woman from the nearby village of Deir Jarir earlier this week. The 30-year-old woman, according to PA security sources, was apparently murdered by members of her family for having had a romance with a Christian man from Taiba.
Romance probably meaning having peeked through her burka at some guy's butt.
"When her family discovered that she had been involved in a forbidden relationship with a Christian,
aka "peeking"
they apparently forced her to drink poison," said one source. "Then they buried her without reporting her death to the relevant authorities."
As if the Palistinian Authority were 'relevant'.
When the PA security forces decided to launch an investigation into the woman's death, her family protested for fear that the relationship would be exposed. The family was further infuriated by the decision to exhume the body for autopsy.
Their solution? Burn Christian owned homes rather than protest the PA. Seems logical to me... if you were inflicted with the mental distorder called radical islam.
The attack is one of the worst against Christians in the West Bank in many years.

"More than 500 Muslim men, chanting Allahu akbar [God is great], attacked us at night," said a Taiba resident. "They poured kerosene on many buildings and set them on fire. Many of the attackers broke into houses and stole furniture, jewelry and electrical appliances."

Residents said it took the PA security forces several hours to reach Taiba.
Guess where the PA were:
...they [the attackers] tried to enter the local beer factory, but were repelled by PA security agents.
Sounds like time for a mandatory evacuation of all Christians out of the West Bank eh? How bout we just evacuate all but radical islamists, sure would make a nice bulls-eye wouldn't it?
