The MKO and Iran


Qorban-Ali Dorri Najafabadi (on the left) doesn't like the MKO, which is understandable. The group has been a thorn in the side of Iran since 1980.

From a historical standpoint, this is really worth reading; http://www.turkishweekly.net/news/63688/eu-takes-iranian-group-off-terror-list-but-status-still-disputed-.html

So why is the EU taking them off their terrorist list? They have been attacking Iran every chance they get.

Just today Iran published a complaint about this; http://www5.irna.ir/En/View/FullStory/?NewsId=374270&IdLanguage=3

It reminds me of a sword fight with words...

Iran Is Going Broke?


If I spoke Persian (Farsi), I would say "Just print more money, like the USA". It's a great way to govern!

Maybe there will be some governmental turnover?? How's all that effort and money on a "peaceful" nuclear program paying off?

US Drug Busts


Good news to me. 750 assholes in jail, whatever will the rich assholes that bought the stuff do now? I can only hope this dries up some of the local crack cookers (I have two in my little neighborhood alone).
Considering we have given Mexico $197M, they could do more about the Sinaloa cartel? Oh, wait, the cartel probably got a lot of the money....

Italy Goes Nuclear?


Again?

Yep, with the help of France, they will. Maybe they can burn some of the tons of trash piled up in Naples to generate some kilowatts too?

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7906031.stm

Zimbabwe is going to wind up just like South Africa. I have a friend who lives there and from what he's told me, since aparttheid, the country has become lawless. Crime is up and basic services have declined.

Power corrupts as much in Africa as it does in the Americas.

Global Scare Tactics

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/climatechange/4734859/Scientists-capture-dramatic-footage-of--Arctic-glaciers-melting-in-hours.html

Too funny. Measuring the speed of the water is sooo un-scientific. How large is the stream dummy? Did you measure the depth and width? When was the last time you measured at this location?

If you can't "estimate" better, that there are 100 or thousands of these streams of melting glacial ice, um what the hell good are you and your data?

I would also like to know when they went to make this little video? Anyone? Was it January 2008 or 9? Or was this in July/August when there is always glacial melt in the northern hemisphere?

Ah, you can find that all right here; http://www.polar.ch2m.com/Files/PDFs/BoxIceCampPlanFinal2008web.pdf
Shocker, it was over the summer. Duh! What a fucking farce.... Blow me Jason Box.

Children Should "Get Dirty"


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/children_shealth/4734728/National-Trust-launches-campaign-to-get-children-outdoors.html

I am so %100 behind this story. Kids don't do anything adventurous anymore. We are all too scared if they do; and keep them at home with the video games instead. That doesn't lend to the same experience of getting out into the woods and spending a day running amok.

NASA Grounds The Shuttle For Nothing

http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/shuttle/main/

I guess the most disturbing thing in this story is that the soldier charged with murder was actually a medic. I get irony.

Italy used to just make convicted rapists wear a wrist bracelett that read "Think First". I have no clue who that is in the picture, but he looks pretty guilty.

Chocolate Movie


My widescreen copy of the movie arrived tonight! This is nothing less than excellent. Skip the first 12 minutes, it will only confuse you, as it did me.

This has been overlooked by everyone in America, as far as I have heard. You are missing the boat.

If you ever watched a Jackie Chan/Bruce Lee/Chuck Norris or VanDam movie, you have to see this.

No wires lifting characters up into the sky (just a few safety wires) and no stunt doubles; every cast member did their own stunts.

Fucking amazing movie. If you like action or fighting, buy this DVD.

Click here for some trailers.

Eric Holder Can Suck Me



What the hell are you doing Eric?? Blowhard. What about those of us "white" people who have black friends?? I play cards with black people and go to their houses and fix their computers for free. I hired black people (and other races) to work on my team when I was a manager, it wasn't about race you ass...it was about ability.

Why the hell is this asshole setting race relations back to 1967? Eric, did you run this past Obama??

Do you want a race war? If not, shut the hell up and let us rational people (of all races) work our little problems out. You are not helping and you should be removed from office immediately.

Please suck me while my "ethnic" friends watch and kick you in your simple little minded ass. I would love to have 10 minutes of "dialouge" with this bigot.

Northrop Grumman's Shut Out Of The Federal Government..


This came across my desk today at work; "New Information:
Recently, the GovTrip website experienced a security breach. At this time, the GSA CIO has pulled Northrop Grumman's authority to operate across all Agencies. Therefore, all OM GovTrip users will not be able to access the GovTrip travel system until further notice
."

Sounds like someone's pissed.

The Post had a small story on this (see below). Considering NG touts itself as a "security" company, this is all pretty bad news. No bail out for you boys...

I am on the fence over this and have again apologized to my kids over the mess they will inherit. I guess time will tell. The corruption has to stop in the Banks, Wall Street and the Realtor business. You guys have fucked everyone enough, so go retire and stop the shit.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/scienceandtechnology/science/space/4592130/Unseen-dark-comets-could-pose-deadly-threat-to-earth.html

The serious point here is that we can't see these with regular optics. So it's a damn good thing that we have satellites looking across just about all spectrums. Most comets are actually found because they block out known stars light as they pass by. I am not so worried.

Bigger News Than Rihanna

This just made me laugh, so there...

The Democrats


I can't blame Judge Dread for withdrawing from Obama's Cabinet, not one little bit.

After hearing Nancie Pellosy (spelt wrong as an insult) today use the words "fiscally responsible" when talking about ANYTHING congress is doing these days, I puked.

I know what she wants under that gavel and it involves nuts and Pubs (an utter waste of time). She is why Obama's vision for governance is failing, her and Reed. Maybe a leash and whip would help, from what I hear, most Congressmen like that.

Judd Gregg Resigns

Is that him in the picture?


This is a bit of a "son of a bitch" move on Judd's part. And he doesn't even give a real reason, just a general comment. I bet Michael (short lived future) Steele got in his ear about taking the appointment. Everyone I start to think is an OK politician turns out to be a total dick head.

I guess we all have the same old Washington crap to look forward to for the next four to eight years. What a bunch of assholes (and I don't just mean the Pubs when I say that, Pelosi and Reed are total fuck heads). We are all fucked if these idiots keep acting like babies.

Autism And Vaccines..



So Autism is not caused by vaccines! So says some Judges.
http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/13/health/13vaccine.html?_r=1&hp

I have been on the fence over this, myself. I have a child who has what is called "mild" or "slight" Autism. He's a good kid. Can't find a damn job though.

Satellites Collide




It's not a shock to me, all the crap we have in orbit around the planet is staggering. Maybe they will all crash into each other like a Nascar race pile-up.

Muslims Beyond Reproach?

Should any religion be beyond negative comments on it's origin?

I know I have a big problem with a lot of history in the Christian religions. Hell, I have problems with a lot of what is going on today (and I don't just mean Catholics). Toss in Jews, Baptist, Jehova, Latter Day whatevers...

So in India, two people are being held for reprinting a factual article that was critical of several religions; http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7883612.stm?lss

The original article in question is still here, by Johann Hari, on the Independent; http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/johann-hari/johann-hari-why-should-i-respect-these-oppressive-religions-1517789.html Not a long read, but enlightening.

Does anyone else see a positive result in not having any religion at all? I know I don't need it and feel better off/liberated/free for it. Is it still worth fighting, dying, or jail time for?

Think of how the world would look if we all spent that time not praying, but picking up the trash around our neighborhood? Better yet, spend that time helping someone who has less that you? Or just needs some help. Wouldn't that time outside of any church count towards doing something good, no matter what religion you examine??

Obama And Kaine??

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/12/us/politics/12stimulus.html?hp

Well shit, Obama is talking about spending while standing on a 6 lane road (next to it, on a green carpet) being built to circumnavigate an existing 6 lane road that connects to the same I-95 one mile to the north. WTF? It's only $115 Million, no biggie.
Are you EVEN TRYING TO USE A LITTLE COMMON SENSE?????

Hi Terrorists, Here's 87,000 US Weapons...


http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/12/world/asia/12arms.html?_r=1&hp

That's fantastic, we should ship a few hundred thousand innocent US women and children over there so they can just be slaughtered up front. Why toy around with it, that's who the terrorists want to wipe out.

This doesn't even address the 135,000 missing from foreign countries. Am I the only one that sees this as insane?

I am torn about the US and UN leaving Africa outright, or just colonizing it again. That is one sad ass statement considering the AU has been in force for a long time. They don't seem capable of taking care of themselves. People in that situation usually die.
