Ancilla Tilia Is Cute


Really, I think she is. She doesn't do harcore, that I have seen, which is cool. I like her better as a brunette though...

Anyway, I can in no way endorse someone doing a web search for ("ancilla tilia" rar forum) and seeing more of her for free. That would be bad, so don't do that. Really.

Japan's Seniors Get It

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-13598607

Why send young men/women to tackle a problem that might kill them, when old people are willing to carry that load?  Is that evil?

The Grates

First video off the new CD, cool!!

PBS Hacked

LulzSec got EVERYTHING... It's kind of scary, these groups all protecting (defending?) Wikileaks. They are obviously very powerful, and relentless.

http://pastebin.com/B3gmw5NS

Looking at their password requirements to access their sites, PBS had it coming. LulzSec didn't really do anything malicious, but they certainly could have if they wanted to.

It really should be a wake up call to people, that whatever you put online, anywhere, is possibly public. Don't expect anyone to be able to respect or protect your privacy.

Petr Alina Set



I in no way condone people doing a search for a file called "petr_alina_photos_set03_highres-pics.rar".  They would possibly see the beautiful natural figure of a woman, without surgical enhancement. 

Libya News = Funny



Just the intro, and the "condolences" had me laughing..

Lockheed Martin = Hacked

Lockheed has been heralded as one of the shadiest "defence contractors" to ever exist in the US.  Lets see how they do, with China having thier blue prints?

How The US House gets Around Earmark Ban

http://www.cnn.com/2011/POLITICS/05/28/mysterious.fund/index.html?hpt=T2 

No shock in thiss really, so many in Congress defend earmarks, on both sides of the isle.  This was most likely a bi-partisan agreement.

Lady GaGa

The haters just keep on hating, but every time I hear her sing live, I have to pause and listen.

Muammar Gaddafi Has A Rebel Stronghold 100KM Away...



He really is doomed.  More than he probably knows.  He needs to go, and fast.  Or he can just die.

Russia Agrees To Mediate Gaddafi's Demize


It's a little scary to have Russia even asked to do this. They have too many ties to Libya. I would so rather see a South African Country negotiate this.

Civil War Reenactors


They give you a real firsthand look at the basis for racism in the US. They shout from the mountain tops, that the Civil War "was not about slavery". I ask if they have actually read any of President Lincoln’s speeches from the time?

A good reason to have that flag too.

My Joplin Before-After Pic


Bill Haslam Is An Anti-Gay Ass


Bill kind-of looks like the kid who got picked on all the time and laughed nervously in Middle School. People have to realize that they have gay, straight and bi people in their state (the whole country).

They are Americans Bill. They deserve the same rights under the Constitution. Quoting the 14th Amendment: No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

That will be overturned...dumbass.

Congresswoman Shelley Berkley = Idiot

BEFORE

 
AFTER

Ok, not only is this wench so STUPID as to introduce H.R.467 in the House, to make deducting travel expenses for any spouse tagging along on a Business Trip OK, she has made her picture into a character from World of Warcraft....

She also submitted H.R. 468 to allow said "spouses" to deduct meals/entertainment too.  What the hell are her priorities?
She got Mike Kelly [PA-3] and Donald Manzullo [IL-16] to back this too.  It's just a big party for the rich people who don't want to pay for anything!!

She also submitted H.R.1757 making the removal of the Estate Tax permanent.  I guess she wants to pass on her wealth, unhindered.. She must be retiring soon?

Todd Platts (PA) Wants Illegal Aliens To Be Citizens

Todd has HR 411 submitted in the House, to allow 26 illegal aliens full citizenship and Social Security/Medicare benefits.

He is a Republican hell bent on helping issegals into the US. Look at the "Helping You" link on his site at the top. How do you Republicans let him get away with this??

Ron Paul's H.R.151

Full text is here, but what the hell is he up to??

First he strikes Paragraph 3 of this: http://www.ssa.gov/OP_Home/ssact/title18/1802.htm

As far as I can tell, it will let Doctors charge Medicare whatever they like for any service??  Am I wrong?

Then he states this: "No persons otherwise eligible for old-age benefits under Social Security shall be denied such benefits because of their voluntary refusal to participate in any part of the Medicare program."

I can only interpret that to mean, if you never "voluntarily" paid into Medicare, you can still have full benefits when you hit 65??  Where in the Constitution does it say this is ok?

Isearel's Borders


If you look around online, you will see all kinds of versions of the Palestine/Israel borders.  The one above seems close to what I see on valid maps.  So President Obama wants to roll back borders to 1967, when I was five.  So was Obama.  The borders today have a lot less orange, than the image to the right, above.

If I were King, I would carve out a plot of land in Arizona, and give Israel a 200x30 mile stretch of land, to call "home" (a lot more land than they have now).  We could relocate the remnants of the wailing wall too.  Just a thought, one that would end the middle east conflicts.  Well, at least as Jews go, I think the Muslim's (I only use "Muslim" to encapsulate Persian and Arabs) would find something else to be pissed about.  I also know it's sensitive to relate Arabs to Persians, but you are all so inter-related.  Like Mormons, Catholics and Baptists are in the US.

Linked-in

Yeah yeah, went public today. I hope all the rich "private" finance folks who got in before the IPO do great (they always do, they get preference to buy low before the IPO, then sell when it gets higher). I hope you all pay your taxes too, but I know a lot will not.

I deleted my Linked In account a second ago, because it will be ultimately ruined by the "free market" pressure to email spam, post banners, share info across other sites.  Wait till you see the privacy statement..

It's just like the free market fucks up every other great idea...commercials. Screw you.

Virgin Galactic Delivers "Feathering"

Very cool stuff, lets you perform re-entry without all that burning. Just slow down first, feather...then glide. Beautiful!

John Bo[eh]ner VS The Catholics

I never thought I would say this ever again, but YAY CATHOLICS!


http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-0514-rutten-20110514,0,2274188.column

"Your voting record," they write, "is at variance from one of the church's most ancient moral teachings. From the apostles to the present, the Magisterium of the Church has insisted that those in power are morally obliged to preference the needs of the poor. Your record in support of legislation to address the desperate needs of the poor is among the worst in Congress. This fundamental concern should have great urgency for Catholic policymakers. Yet, even now, you work in opposition to it."

Solo - Finale



Funny, but watch the other parts first..

Supreme Court Turns The USA Into Syria



Ok, probably a little overstated, but with Police across the country now free to smash in any door they like (no warrant needed), is worriesom to me, more than a little.

Will good cops bust more bad guys? Yes. Will bad cops abuse their new powers? Yes. Will inept cops get hurt? Yes.

I also can't find in the Constitution, where it's ok to break down someone's door without a warrant.

Those Darlins



I like their sound, but if you hear one song, you have heard them all. "Diversity".

All the gals are sisters, last name "Darlin". Cute.

How One Japan Villiage Survived


http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/nn20110518f1.html

The Mayor of the Villiage (Kotaku Wamura) had the hindsight, 40 years ago, to build the floodgate/seawall.

It took that long to pay off, but it saved the majority of the villiage. Hat's off to you sir! The two cost about $200 per person to build.

Planking = Tupid

Egypt's Coptic Christians Attacked



The Copts are basically Christian, but follow the Oriental (East) Catholic Church.

Considering what Egypt just went through, it saddens me to hear (once again and always) religion spawns violence for no reason. It's why I will have nothing to do with any "organized" religion.

Tired Of Life? Go To Switzerland


Pretty astounding that so many citizens voted to keep the assisted suicide laws in place.

Just me though, I don't like pain.

Way Late Movie Review - Tron Legacy

As much as this movie got beat up, I thought it was pretty good. I didn't see it in 3D or Blue Ray, and still thought it was ok.

The story could have been developed a bit better. I would have shortened the beginning and gotten on with the story. I also didn't like the lack of cool sound effects for the Recognizers...

After seeing a preview, I thought the CGI making Bridges younger looked shoddy, but after seeing the movie, it was about as close to the real thing I have seen simulated yet.

I suggest any actor get to a layer soon, and trademark the "likeness". Seriously.

I was so glad to hear about (Laura Bush's buddy) Suzanne's being detained in Egypt about the cash she took from the US and put into Swiss Banks. I hear she has a lot of shoes too.

Clear Cut Forest For Yoga (Says Elton Gallegly)


So Elton has introduced H.R. 241 (a must read), which grants 5 acres of the Las Padres National Forest to The White Lotus Foundation.  The "foundation's" address is a fucking Golf Course???

 Click to enlarge..

I guess the question to Elton would be, "What the fuck dude??"

It's crazy, I use the word road loosely...I haven't squirmed like that since I saw the last Star Trek movie.

What We Won't Do To Save New Orleans

A 25'-ish flood wall stretching as far as they eye can see..

I was looking through the page after page of photos, depicting the billions of dollars we are spending to safeguard New Orleans (see below).

http://www.flickr.com/photos/37671998@N05/page5/  (keep going up)

The cost of these flood gates and walls is astounding, but we are pouring billions into the project. All to save a city that is already below sea level, and still sinking. Pure insanity..nature will win this battle, again and again. Move the city inland, and let the old one flood.

We can't afford to keep shoring up failed cities...move out of the flood plains!

Raj Rajaratnam = Busted

So glad we have the FIRST conviction in the 2008 stock market collapse. Guilty on all 14 charges. I hope the other shady wall street players get the message and understand, even encrypted messaging is not totally secure.

Eurovision 2011, Part 3

Ok, lets finish this...
Italy, we already have Randy Neuman on the plant, idiots.
Latvia, "lame".
Lithuania, great voice, awful entry into this contest.

Wow, Malta caught up to the 1980s. Cindy Lauper is huge there..


Moldova, WTF?
Norway, awful (and I didn't know you had black people there).
Poland has Jestem, very pretty and over produced. http://youtu.be/vkm6hCiuyXw

Portugal, what were you thinking?
Romania put up Hotel FM. Talented, but way too fucking smug.
Russia, save me! Nope, they introduce Alexej Vorobjov, who looks like Duran Duran, but sounds like Brian Ferry.
San Marino's (where the hell is that?) entry is unremarkable.
Serbia didn't wow me. Not bad though..

Slovakia always has a strong showing, Twiins wins with solid harmoies;


Slovenia is depressing. The entry is called "No One", bummer. Acoustic quaalude.

Spain's Lucia Perez gets it, have fun!


Sweden (who usually has good entries) scoops up a Beiber wanna be.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEX0WSq2jh4&feature=player_embedded

Switzerland's Anna Rossinelli had me the second I saw her picture.

Very cute.

Netherlands 3JS needs a new name. Kinda Bryan Adams-ish.

Woah! Turkey can ROCK! YĆ¼ksek Sadakat kicks some ass..


Ukraine will probably win with Mika Newton (remember the name), great pipes.


Last, but the least; UK, boy bands that are in their late 20's fail. Blue= FAIL.

"Human Poo Farms" Make People Sick



I am personally torn on this issue. If it comes out of our ass, or an animal's ass, what is the big difference? They both have nasty parasites and bacteria. Leaving it spread out on the dirt should kill most of that, or am I totally off track? Comments...

Wow, Just WOW!



One of the best bits of storytelling without dialogue, that I have seen in a long time.

Eurovision Part 2

I won't post a link, but just say 'WTF France?" They don't get it.

Georgia has an intersting entry. I saw a bellybutton!


Germany has a good entry. Lena is very easy on the eyes, but doesn't really "stretch" the vocals. Cute video, and I would have missed the dancers in body suits. Germany always delivers..


The fact that Hungary is in the Semi-Finals baffles me.

The 1970's has finally reached the shores of Iceland..tap your toes.


Ok, Ireland; you have no idea how much I hope this hair stype catches on..

I love the lyric "dumb dumb, dumb dumb". How original.

Um, Israels entry "Dana International", singing Ding Dong, is a big bowl of "Ah OK".

Eurovision 2011 (Part 1)

First, I hate the "horns" on the video intros/exit...

Nadine Beiler (Austria) has a great voice, but I hated her song..

Ell & Nikki (Azerbaijan) sound good and have a cute video. I wouldn't mind hearing them sing without all the production...


Belarus manages (once again) to put up a great voice, but a losing song....they have never won Eurovision.

Anastasiya Vinnikova is very cute though.

Yes, a "fun song"..Belgium:

They won't win (or will they?), but it's creative!

Dino Merlin (Bosnia & Herzegovina) keep the Gipsy alive

I know, the would curse me for calling them Gipsys.

Not my cup of tea, but Poli Genova (Bulgaria) would fit right in on the US top 40.


I liked all the hookers in Croatia video. Cyprus was crap.. I don't have enough bubble gum to listen to the Denmark entry.

Estonia gets a nod just for incorporating a Magic Trick!

I love Magic.

So H.R.39 introduced by Congressdick Don Young, wants to tell FWS what to think and conclude and ignore the science?  Really Don?  Congress has the power to make these determinations, because some oil man wants to drill somewhere?  Just make it LAW?  Bypass the very powers Congress granted FWS?  IDIOT..Don.
