The Jawa Report should have aimed this at a few Other Candidates

In The Jawa Report: A Video Message to Dr. Ron Paul this gem is provided:

It speaks for itself

Venezuela to Chavez: errrmmm, No!

Chavez Loses Constitutional Vote tells us that Hugo chavez lost his president-for-life bid with his proposed constitutional changes going down by a 51-49 per cent tally. The changes would have scrapped Venezuela's term limits and allowed Chavez to run for president indefinately. Among other things.
He would be able to hand pick previously elected officials and redraw the political maps on a whim. Givne his track record the last couple of years, he needs to be watched.

When Good Intentions Blow up in Your Face

I do not foubt that Gillian Gibbons went to Sudan with the best of intentions. She wanted to build understanding between cultures. She let the kids in her class decide on a name for a teddy bear. The class voted to name the bear for one of their classmates, "Mohammed". As a result mobs have come pouring out of mosques in Sudan screaming for her execution!
That's right, once again, the "Religion of PeaceSubjugation" has reared its ugly head. According toBid to free Gillian | The Sun |HomePage|News The angry adherants came pouring out of the local mosques. Don't try to tell me this mob just appeared out of nowhere. The description of what happened makes it clear to all but the most starry-eyed that this was incited by the local imams. The mob is incensed that she will not get forty lashes, but spend ten days in a prison reputed to be a hell hole and be deported. Which is still, in my opinion a gross overreaction (to put it mildly) to the naming of a teddy bear.
Personally, I hope the vindictive secretary who set this chain of events into motion gets up close and personal with some of the more fun aspects of sharia law. A gross overreaction? Sure it is. But so is what she started.

Bet One of them was named Dursley

Fans of Harry Potter know that Surrey is the home of the dispicable Dursley family that made young Harry's life hell as he was growing.Michelle Malkin retells a story that happened in Surrey where disabled vets were harrangued from a public swimming pool by two twits who were angry because "they had paid" and the limbless vets were scaring the kids (who had probably been playing games like "Doom III" or "Resident Evil"
They would do well to remember this from Kipling (as one of Michelle's commenters did)


I went into a public-’ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-’alls,
But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!

Interestingly, the war protesters aren't even that inconsistent. The guns have begun to shoot and it's still "Tommy this and Tommy that...: with them. Just before my son graduated basic training at Fort Benning, Columbus, Georgia had a "God Bless Fort Banning Day" The usual suspects were out there protesting something that isn't even there anymore and calling prople who had never even been deployed, "baby killers". But that doesn't happen according to J.F. Kerry. I met a Viet Nam vet who, despite Kerry's assurances to the contrary, was spit upon when he returned.
No wonder Al Gore wanted military votes thrown out. He understands that "Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees"

I Was Wondering how Low They would Stoop

Michelle Malkin tells of anti-war protesters bravely standing up for their cause. They are successfully blocking the shipments of supplies to the military by using children as human shields.
Okay, this goes beyond freedom of speech. If this is not giving aid and comfort to the enemy I don't know what is. Especially since they, like our enemy, think nothing of using children. I've never been a big fan of child protective services given the way they tend to abuse their authority to push agenda, but this should be right up their alley, unless of course it doesn't fit their agenda.
My apologies to Sondra K who provided the story to Michelle to begin with.

They asked for it

I came across this vid while catching up onMichelle Malkin . I know it's old news but it's hilarious. I'll be remembering it while I'm enjoying my pipe later this evening.

This Guy Makes Me Laugh

No, it has nothing to do with his rapier wit, or incisive commentary. This guy is hilarious simply because his door is somewhat ajar. Some of his circuits hafe shorted out. Some one has removed the pins from one hinge and the last pin isn't far from working itself out. He made his tinfoil hat with the dull side out...well, you get the idea.
I first ran across him while perusing DUmmie FUnnies. Apparently PJ has found a gift that keeps on giving in this guy. I won't repeat PJ's commentary here because he deserves the traffic. So the both of you who still read this thing after my long absence, shoot over to DUmmie FUnnies
Here is some of Perry Logan's, ummmmmm, for lack of a better word, "work"

And here's one where he cites a poll. Well, I guess you can call it citing a poll. He never gives the source and holds up a mini legal pad and points to it like that is his source. Ane he says conservatives don't care about the truth.

I think PJ is on to something though, If the Democrats would make him a featured speaker at their national convention, you might see a drastic shift in the in extraordinary majority Republican.

Perverted Primates

My buddy Lilo of Lost in Lima Ohio fame has created a new blog devoted to sexual predators and their escapades. It is called, quite fittingly,Perverted Primates. Go give it a look.

Say it isn't So, David

It seems that one of America's most visible magicians, David Copperfield, is being investigated for some unsavory acts that don't involve sleight of hand. That computers and hard drives have been confiscated is not comforting. That said, it is not uncommon for false accusations to be made against famous people.
I hope this is the case here. Magicians are often viewed with mistrust by many people and this will not help. I hope that justice is served in this case regardless of the outcome. If he is exonerated I hope those making the false accusation suffer the consequences. If they accusations prove true, I hope that Mr. Copperfield suffers the consequences likewise.

Bad Joke of the Century! And it isn't Even Funny.

You remember Lynn Stewart? If only she and her terrorist sympathizer buddies would let us forget. As you might recall, This shyster made headlines when she was convicted of conspiracy and aiding terrorists by smuggling out instructions from the "Blind Mullah. For which she received a ridiculous twenty-eight months in prison and was disbarred. The conviction is, ofcourse, pending appeal.
According to, Michelle Malkin , the Hofstra University Law School has hired to teach, are you ready for this? Ethics. Like I said, a bad joke that isn't even funny. If I was a Hofstra LS alum my diploma would be in the shredder with the pieces on the way to the president with a letter of resignation. Then again, given that the name Hofstra doesn't leap to mind when you hear, "law school", it's probably a diploma mill in the first place. Their choice of faculty seems to indicate thus.

Well, There goes my Favorite Parody of "I Like Chinese"

Amy Proctor - Blog - French Foreign Minister Calls Code Pink 'Stupid' During Interruption tells of the French president referring to Code Pink as "stupid".
You fellow Monty Python fans remember Eric Idol singing "I Like Chinese". Well Glenn Beck did a quite amusing parody called "I like the French" It goes something like this:(note: I'm working from memory here, He has it on his website but you have to be an Insider to get to it)

I like the French
I like the French
L like to club them with a wrench.
They're rude
They're hateful
and their language makes no sense

Now along comes a new president who does not have the backbone of a chocolate eclaire like his predecessor. I may have to stop singing this.

Col. Cut-n-Run Sticks by his Stupidity

blonde sagacity: Murtha Refuses to Apologize to Marines is a headline that should come as no surprise. His claime all along has been to the effect of, "Well that's what I've heard." Now, as a private citizen he is entitled to form an opinion on the matter. That is not what I question.

My problem with him is the fact that he, as a member of Congress, publicly pronounced the eight Marines in question guilty. He did this without the minor formality of a trial, indictment or even an investigation.

Now, one by one, the charges are being dropped. Being the man that he is, did Murtha offer an apology to those who have been exonerated? Nope! Afraid that would be expecting too much from him. Maybe he's waiting until it's all over before issuing apologies...yeah, right.

Gone too long!

Yes, I have been away for a while. Since I've been gone, my oldest has Graduated magna cum laude and headed off to grad school on the left coast.
The youngest has joined the Army and is home on a 30 day con leave when he and about a 3rd of his basic training platoon came down with mono. Not sure how it happened but the suspicion is bad sanitizing practices on the canteens issued when they arrived on base. So don't bother with the don't-ask-don't-tell jokes, they've been death.
See y'all again soon.

More like "Because of" Rather than "Despite"

I'm baaaa-aaaack. Sorry about the long absence.

I don't watch award shows anymore. They have become little more than forums for self absorbed celebrities. Am I the only one who is NOT surprised by the Dixie Chicks doing well at the Grammies? This is a group who had to cancel concerts because people were not buying tickets. Why weren't they buying tickets? Because many viewed the Chicks anti-American and wanted nothing to do with them. Nobody is fooled by these awards, they won big at the Grammies precisely because of their anti-war, anti-military stances.

In a day where Oscars are handed out to movies that have "sprint audiences" (friends and family) simply because they or their stars are "on message" last night's Grammy Awards should come as no shock.

The Distinguished Gentleman from Talos IV

I heard about David Wu's Vulcan/Klingon analogy while driving home last week I thought it was bad enough that a Member of Congress would make such a comment. The fact he refers to "real Klingons" makes the guy even more laughable. If this silliness was not bad enough, it turns out he made the comments on the floor of the House.
See for yourself:

Just a note, Mr. Wu, if you are going to throw out the "chicken hawke" meme, it might be taken more seriously if you had served yourself. If you had served, why did you omit it from your official congressional bio?
I can almost hear James Trafficant's signature, "Beam me up, Scotty", not that Trafficant really believed there was a "real Scotty".

Sure, It's not the Stanley Cup, but...

It is a story worthy of the Stanley Cup. However, it is about the Liberty Bowl trophy. First a little background. Until 1995 USC (That's the University of South Carolina, not the pretender on the west coast who named themselves for a people who were fooled by a wooden horse) was 0-8 in bowl appearamces and held the record for the longest bowl losing streak (thank you, Notre Dame for releaving us of that "honor" this year). You would think that somebody would have noticed that the trophy was missing.
Well it was and it wasn't. According to The State | 01/06/2007 | Liberty Bowl trophy takes slow ride home to USC it had been entrusted to the team's long snap center, senior, Scott Morgan. Well, Mr. Morgan slept through his wake up call and missed the team bus to the airport, and, consequently the plane back to Columbia. Fortunately some of his friends were still in Memphis so the trophy rode in the backseat between two passengers. They did stop at a Hooters in Conyers, Georgia where it sat in the back seat covered by jackets (didn't want any UGA fans to get any ideas).
When asked if they did anything like drink beer out of it like has been known to be done with the Stanley Cup they replied that they did think about it, but the bell would not turn upside-down. The trophy did make it back undamaged except for one big crack, but it was supposed to be there.

Comments now Moderated

You can pretty much guess why.

The HP Postie Patrol

This is a sponsored post, so no whining that it looks like a commercial. It is a commercial.
I like HP. I have two of their printers, one of which is almost 8 years old and still works, it just does not suit my needs any more. The newer one more than meets my needs. Their "Picture Book" commercial stands as one of greatest of all times, in my opinion.
Now the folks at HP Digital Photo Printing have come up with the Postie Patrol. Basically they send you on a scavenger hunt for cash and prizes. Something like this:

Wasn't that fun? I loved the way she didn't panic when they kept telling her she was running out of time. Her attempt at making a snow angel in snow that had frozen over was rather entertaining too. Would I welcome the chance to participate in the Postie Patrol? Heck yeah!
