Iran Is Nuts Over Israel

Really?  It spells ZION?  I saw a different word.

Rick Perry Seems Cowardly?

If you are on Twitter, please follow Texas governor Perry, as he is blocking members of Texas' media from his Twitter account. http://ow.ly/458RR  Let's all follow @GovernorPerry and make him feel "special" Maybe he won't be so scared.

Got to watch in HD and full screen..

Continuing Resolution

I am reading the CR Republicans are proposing, and I am baffled.  Not surprised.

What is really frustrating is the way they wrote it; So anyone reading it had to go digging into other documents, to find out what they proposed cutting. We really need to write these bills in plain fucking language. Say what you want to defund...

They want to cut the Child Care Aware hotline, that is a big help to Military Families, and the rest of America's parents.

They kill the funding for the Older Americans Act of 1965, which I assume they feel is redundant today??

They kill funding for the National Museum of African American History (enough said about the Tea Party not being racist?).

They kill Stem Cell research funding, not at all surprising.

They kill the Public Health Service Act "title XXI" (the State child health plan ).

They kill State school support, and some train/ferry/road repair funding assistance.

They kill block grants though EDI, I guess that just want poor people to go away and die.

It shorts the Smithsonian. I guess we don't need "history".

Libya Rebellion Update



The Rebels are now infused with the majority of the Army, and they mean to take Tripoli. Oh, they have tanks....

People are signing up in droves and registering to join the Rebels. People from all walks of life. A transitional government is being established to maintain basic services in most of the country. This sooo smells of CIA support.

The Lonely Whale


The NPR based show, Dinner Party Download did a story about a Whale that has distorted vocal chords. Because of this, other Whales don't get the mating calls or the occasional "Hi guys".

http://www.publicradio.org/columns/dinnerpartydownload/

Scientists have been aware of the Whale since 1992, so for 19 years the puppy has been wandering the oceans alone. That's depressing as hell..

But, I would in no way encourage anyone to click THIS LINK and download a RAR file of her Playboy Cyber Girl Of The Week pictorial.  Don't you dare do it...RIGHT NOW.

Oh, if you don't know what to do with a rar file, the rest of the internet laughs at you. Figure it out.

It's the law that makes it illegal for internet providers to throttle any lawful traffic as part of the service they provide.  It pisses off ISPs, who want you to start paying for content based on bandwidth usage.

Yes, American male Wrestlers should not even be in the same room as women who are not their wives. This reeks of fanatical religious beliefs. It's simply "Sexism". Don't be afraid people, women can take off their Aprons and enter into the realm of Man.

Bottom line, she qualified..you wrestle. Or you look like you are afraid to be beaten by a girl.

Kels Ferguson, Fuckin' Perfect

Some Short Star Wars Fan FIction

South Dakoda Is Insane

Run for the border Doctors....

FOR AN ACT ENTITLED, An Act to expand the definition of justifiable homicide to provide for the protection of certain unborn children.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF SOUTH DAKOTA:

Section 1. That § 22-16-34 be amended to read as follows:
22-16-34. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person while resisting any attempt to murder such person, or to harm the unborn child of such person in a manner and to a degree likely to result in the death of the unborn child, or to commit any felony upon him or her, or upon or in any dwelling house in which such person is.

Section 2. That § 22-16-35 be amended to read as follows:
22-16-35. Homicide is justifiable if committed by any person in the lawful defense of such person, or of his or her husband, wife, parent, child, master, mistress, or servant, or the unborn child of any such enumerated person, if there is reasonable ground to apprehend a design to commit a felony, or to do some great personal injury, and imminent danger of such design being
accomplished.

This pretty much "kills" planned parenthood in the State, because even non-abortion Doctors there, will be too freaked out to stay around.

The State's Attourney is working with the Legislature to keep people from being murdered, so there might be a light at the end of this tunnel...

Democrats Shutout



I guess I am a "Fringe" person, even though my sort-of "party" holds the White House, Senate and the entire MD State legislature. I thought redistricting was done at the State level??

Comcast Throttling

Oh, so tough to see the facts....

Here I am streaming Hawaii 50 from CBS (not a Comcast company)


This is me streaming Perfect Couples, a NBC show (a Comcast company)


Comarison of the two, the CBS feed maxed out at about 2.5% of total bandwidth every 10 seconds.  The NBC feed provides about a 2% total bandwidth almost continuously.  The peaks are commercials.  The dips are my lack of clicking "continue" after the commercial.  You are "throttled"...

CPAC Is A Great Event!


That stands for Colored People Are Cancer, right, RIGHT? Been listening to their hate talk on C-Span today, and the only real common ground I have with them (the Tea Party) would be a balanced budget ammendment. Hell yes! And where were you 31 years ago when Reagan got the debt ramped up? Don't make me post another graph...you know I can and it will be the blatant truth. So where were you??

Clinton balanced the budget and no one cheered. I didn't like Bill's off hours conduct, but he did balance the budget. He had help, so lets do that again, please? Cut the hell out of NIH ($55BN) and NSF ($7.5BN). They are about the most useless branches of "government" we have today.

RED ARROW: When I was a child, I used to play in the sandbox at this playground (outside a Church that I never attended).

Since I know you want to know, I was 7 years old.

And of course I had my ass spanked liberally.

He's not dead. I mean the (EX) Republican Congressman Chris Lee. That used to be an honorable name, based on the portfolio of the actor. I actually remember when this guy got voted in, liked the name...gave me a "new hope".


Just another useless freak, so glad we have so many more of these in the "House". He should have gone to prayer night with the (didn't support him) Tea Party"? Hats off to Gawker for pulling the story.

I finally got to watch the movie today. I have to say Adrienne Barbeau was fantastic in it.


I watched the bonus material, and was amazed to learn Adrienne had not eaten meat since 1975! It's hard to be a Zombie who doesn't eat meat.  Pay the 6 bucks and get the DVD, it's a keeper.

Hillary Clinton Was Disturbing Today

If you go HERE you can see what they want you to see of her speech today.
http://www.state.gov/secretary/rm/2011/02/156042.htm

Below is the actual text of what was edited out...via America.gov.

"All of this is taking place against a backdrop of depleting resources. Water tables are dropping, and oil reserves are running out.

Leaders in the region may be able to hold back the tide for a little while, but not for long. That has been the story of the last weeks. It is what has driven demonstrators into the streets of Tunis, Cairo, and cities throughout the area. The status quo is simply not sustainable. So for all our friends, for all the friends in the region including governments and people, the challenge is to help our partners take systematic steps to usher in a better future where people’s voices are heard, their rights respected, and their aspirations met.

This is not simply a matter of idealism. It is a strategic necessity. Without genuine progress toward open and accountable political systems, the gap between people and their governments will only grow, and instability will only deepen. Across the region, there must be clear and real progress toward open, transparent, fair, and accountable systems. Now, in some countries, this transition is happening quickly; in others it will take more time. Different countries face different circumstances.

And of course, there are risks. There are risks with the transition to democracy. It can be chaotic. It can cause short-term instability. Even worse – and we have seen it before – the transition can backslide into just another authoritarian regime. Revolutions have overthrown dictators in the name of democracy only to see the political process hijacked by new autocrats who use violence, deception, and rigged elections to stay in power or to advance an agenda of extremism.

So the transition to democracy will only work if it is deliberate, inclusive, and transparent. Those who want to participate in the political system must commit to basic principles such as renouncing violence as a tool of political coercion, respecting the rights of minorities – ethnic and religious minorities, participating in a spirit of tolerance and compromise. Those who refuse to make those commitments do not deserve a seat at the table. We will continue to champion free and fair elections as an essential part of building and maintaining a democracy.

But we know elections alone are not sufficient. They’re not even sufficient to secure lasting change. So we also must work together to support the institutions of good governance, the rule of law and an independent judiciary, transparency and a free press, strong political parties, protection for the rights of minorities and more, because those, indeed, are the building blocks of a true democracy.

The transition to democracy is more likely to be peaceful and permanent when it involves both the government in power and a broad cross-section of the citizenry. So in addition to supporting institutions and free and fair elections, we are committed to supporting strong civil societies, the activists, organizations, congregations, intellectuals, reporters who work through peaceful means to fight corruption and keep governments honest. Their work enriches the soil in which democracy grows.

So the United States urges the leaders of the region to work with civil society, to see it as a partner rather than a threat, and making the political, economic, and social reforms that are being called for. And just as America engages leaders in the region, we will continue to engage the people through civil society, through dialogue like the town halls that I have enjoyed doing on my travels."

In short, Hillary wants Mubarak to stay...makes me and MOST Americans sick.

Jeff Sessions Is An Idiot

Please JUMP to 1:20Min and listen to this fool try to explain that a drop in unemployment numbers is a bad thing...and he does it REALLY BADLY.


He has no clue what Americans are capable of. Once the benefits run out, each and every one of these unemployed will do everything in their power to move themselves forward, to a better place. They will start new businesses, as you see happening now. This is the way Americans reinvent themselves. We do it every 40 years or so.

The NexGen FAA Aircraft Fiasco

So two companies joined to form ACSS, the "leader" of this plot. Firstly, Thales Group, a top 10 Defence contractor based in France, and known for corrution/bribery.

Secondly, L3 Board includes a former Deputy Director of OMB under Jimmy Carter and a senior Defence advisor to Bill Clinton. Shocker. Paybacks...
They also stink of Lockheed Martin and Lehman Brothers. A virtual cesspool.

I guess my biggest bitch is tossing millions of dollars to these assholes who pay no taxes, in what ammounts to a no-bid contract. Something I thought was illegal.
