Mongoloid Media Manure

I hadn't planned to post until after I had my surgery, but I saw this and had to comment on it.
I saw on Michelle Malkin's website this excerpt of the president's interview yesterday, and how the morons in the media are spinning a few words the president said into a context unintended.
Today, the President himself admitted being inarticulate about this.
It amuses me how the media can puke up crap like this.

Read it for yourself, with me adding the boldface, or at the links provided below:

Michelle Malkin:


PUTTING BUSH THROUGH THE SPIN CYCLE
By Michelle Malkin August 31, 2004 11:08 AM
The New York Times headline this morning reads: "Bush Cites Doubt America Can Win War on Terror."

John Edwards (who?) yapped: "This is no time to declare defeat."

Bush did not "declare defeat." John Kerry's desperate spinners are selectively seizing on the second sentence in Bush's answer to NBC Today Show co-host Matt Lauer about how the war on terror will eventually be won.

Here is the relevant portion of Bush's interview, which aired yesterday:

Lauer: “You said to me a second ago, one of the things you'll lay out in your vision for the next four years is how to go about winning the war on terror. That phrase strikes me a little bit. Do you really think we can win this war on terror in the next four years?”
President Bush: “I have never said we can win it in four years.”

Lauer: “So I’m just saying can we win it? Do you see that?”

President Bush: “I don't think you can win it. But I think you can create conditions so that those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world –- let's put it that way. I have a two pronged strategy. On the one hand is to find them before they hurt us, and that's necessary. I’m telling you it's necessary. The country must never yield, must never show weakness [and] must continue to lead. To find al-Qaida affiliates who are hiding around the world and … harm us and bring ‘em to justice –- we're doing a good job of it. I mean we are dismantling the al-Qaida as we knew it. The long-term strategy is to spread freedom and liberty, and that's really kind of an interesting debate. You know there's some who say well, ‘You know certain people can't self govern and accept, you know, a former democracy.’ I just strongly disagree with that. I believe that democracy can take hold in parts of the world that are now non-democratic and I think it's necessary in order to defeat the ideologies of hate. History has shown that it can work, that spreading liberty does work. After all, Japan is our close ally and my dad fought against the Japanese. Prime Minister Koizumi, is one of the closest collaborators I have in working to make the world a more peaceful place.”

ANOTHER TOY depicting 911

Same candy maker, similar toy-two towers, but this time with an Osama look alike between them. It looks like he is trying to knock them over.

Marital Bliss

This was sent to me by a friend and I had to post it here:

Newlywed couple had only been married for two weeks.
The husband, although very much in love, couldn't wait to go out on the town and party with his old buddies.

So, he said to his new wife, "Honey, I'll be right back."

"Where are you going, coochy coo?" asked the wife.

"I'm going to the bar, pretty face. I'm going to have a beer."

The wife said, "You want a beer, my love?" She opened the door to the refrigerator and showed him 25 different kinds of beer, brands from 12 different countries: Germany, Holland, Japan, India, etc.
The husband didn't know what to do, and the only thing that he could think of saying was, "Yes, lolly pop...but at the bar...you know...they have frozen glasses..."

He didn't get to finish the sentence, because the wife interrupted him by saying, "You want a frozen glass, puppy face?"

She took a huge beer mug out of the freezer, so frozen that she
was getting chills just holding it.

The husband, looking a bit pale, said, "Yes, tootsie roll, but at the
bar they have those hors d'oeuvres that are really delicious... I
won't be long, I'll be right back. I promise. OK?"

"You want hors d'oeuvres, poochi pooh?" She opened the oven
and took out 5 dishes of different hors d'oeuvres: chicken wings,
pigs in blankets, mushroom caps, pork strips, etc.

"But my sweet honey... at the bar... you know... there's swearing,
dirty words and all that..."

"You want dirty words, cutie pie?...

"LISTEN UP, DICKHEAD! DRINK YOUR FUCKING
BEER IN YOUR FROZEN MUG AND EAT
YOUR MOTHERFUCKING SNACKS, BECAUSE YOU
ARE MARRIED NOW, YOU AREN'T GOING ANYWHERE!
GOT IT, ASSHOLE?"

and, they lived happily ever after. Isn't that a sweet story?

John Kerry's daughters received a rude awakening at the MTV awards when they were booed by the audience.
If anything, I would have expected an MTV audience to welcome them with open arms, but this was not the case.

Seen on snarkland.com
This is so nasty!


Authorities in Chicago are considering criminal charges against the Dave Matthews Band after reviewing surveillance footage of an August 8 incident in which the group's tour bus allegedly dumped human waste into the Chicago River.

Not to mention all that crap and piss landed on a passing tour boat. Seems kind of odd because they were supposedly ecologically sensitive.....

Vodka Saves 6 Lives

Six people who were drunk were denied entry onto an airliner at the Moscow airport.
The plane took off without them- and crashed moments later along with another airliner in what turns out to be an apparent terrorist attack.

Talk about ironic.

Texas Attitude

Being that I was born in Texas, I found this amusing:)

Rules to Enter Texas : Applies to each person as they enter Texas . Learn & remember: East Coast and California-types pay particular attention! 1. Pull your stupid droopy pants up. You look like an idiot. 2. Let's get this straight; it's called a "gravel road." I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way. 3. They are cattle & oil wells. That's what they smell like to you. They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? I-20 and I-10 go east and west, I-35 goes north and south. Pick one. 4. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000 cotton strippers that are driven only 3 weeks a year. 5. So every person in every pickup waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept. 6. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of doves are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time. 7. Yeah, we eat catfish & crawfish. You really want sushi & caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop. 8. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November. 9. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age. 10. No, there's no "vegetarian special" on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey. 11. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, an d breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and Picante Sauce. Oh, yeah.... We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat... It AIN'T REAL CHILI!! Chili was born and bred in San Antonio .... and real chili never met a tomato! 12. You bring "coke" into my house, it better be brown, wet, and served over ice. You bring "Mary Jane" into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair. 13. College and High School Football is as important here as the Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch. 14. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards - it spooks the fish. 15. Colleges? Try Texas , Texas A&M or Texas Tech. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at passing pickups when they come for the holidays. 16. We have more folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, than any other state, so "Don't Mess with Texas ." If you do, you will get whipped by the best. 17. Always remember what our great governor Sam Houston once said: " Texas can make it without the United States , but the United States can't make it without Texas ."

Marine Candor

I know this has made a few rounds, but I thought I would post it here :)

This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between an opinionated female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald, who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what

things are you going to teach these young boys when

they visit your base?

GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them

climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit

irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be

properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this

is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be

teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even

touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to

become violent killers.

GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a

prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio then went completely silent and the interview abruptly ended.

Medevac Helicopter Crashes

This is one of those stories that royally sucks.
Five people were killed when their medevac helicopter crashed shortly after takeoff from Battle Mountain, Nevada enroute to a Reno hospital. The dead include an 11 day old baby, the mother, pilot, paramedic, and nurse. The helicopter vanished shortly after 11:30 PM and the wreckage was found by Search and Rescue from N.A.S. Fallon about 8:30 AM yesterday.
They say the chopper flew into a mountain at full speed and exploded on impact.

What seems dumb to me is I could not find it on any local news websites. I read it on websites from Seattle, Melbourne, Australia; and Palm Springs.
My daughter saw it first on the "crawler" on the bottom of the screen on Fox News.

Touch Screen Voting

I went and voted early yesterday for the Nevada Primary. This is the first time that we have used the touch screen voting system.
I thought it was easy, but I have come to this conclusion:

Based on my job, where we have an electronic payment system, I believe only women will be able to vote in this election.
Why?
Because they are the only ones who can figure electronic shit out.
Men like to act as if they know how to work this stuff, but most don't, and they are too stupid to ask for help.

If they fuck it up, it's the "goddamn machine's fault."

I guess we will see who that will benefit in the election.

Chris Matthews: Intellectual Midget

This is a few days old, but I thought I would comment on it.
Having seen Chris Matthews a few times I thought he was an asshole.
Now I know for certain I was wrong. He is a son of a bitch. His loss of control the other night when he tried to savage Michelle Malkin totally disqualifies him being a journalist.
The issue about whether or not John Kerry inflicted injuries on himself to get the purple hearts came up, and Moron Matthews kept trying to get her to say she said he shot himself. She held her ground that she didn't, and he went crazy. He could not corner her and he got more insane.
He ended up kicking her off the show before her time was up.
Hey Chris: There is more than one way to inflict an injury on one's self other than shooting yourself. Maybe if we show you, you can use it on yourself so you can quit breathing the same air we do.
Jerk off.

Pervert in ICU

A Cleveland area creep is hospitalized in critical condition after he was caught peeping in a 5 year old girl's window and masturbating.
The girl's aunt who took part in the assault on the pervert admitted to raping the suspect with a tree branch.

Legally, it's wrong- but I would likely have been kicking his ass also.

Read for yourself....

An alleged peeping Tom remains in the intensive care unit after reportedly being assaulted with a tree branch, NewsChannel5 reported.

Officials said Mario Russo, 44, was attacked after he was spotted outside a bedroom window wearing his pants around his ankles and watching a 5-year-old girl who was sleeping outside the Bunker Ridge Apartments.


Russo was reportedly hiding in bushes.


Police said after he was discovered a group of six people, include the girl's mother, aunt and their boyfriends attacked him and brutally beat him for more than an hour.


The girl's mother, Stacy Umstott, 28; her aunt, Athena Lemieux, 20; Brandon Breedon, 21; Nicholas Phipps, 21; and Khald Arafat, 34; and a 15-year-old are in police custody. They face felonious assault and rape charges. Murder charges could be filed if Russo dies.


The girl's aunt admitted to sexually assaulting Russo with a tree branch, police said.


The incident was caught on tape.


Meanwhile, police said that citizens should not take matters into their own hands


"To take matters into their own hands like they did was just way, way beyond reason," North Royalton Detective Jay Drake said.

Kerry on 911

I found this at http://www.keyissues.mu.nu/
Since Kerry has said he would have done things differently on 911, he has made this a legitimate issue.

But no one in the media had had the huevos to ask Kerry what he actually did that day.

I guess it has finally come out what he did- he admitted that he sat stunned for forty minutes following news of the attacks and wasn't able to think.....

.... Ok- that is a normal human reaction- I admit to being horrified to tears when I awoke to the news that day.
But for somebody who is running for President to shoot his mouth off like that and say what he would have done; what he actually did becomes an issue.
I can't say it any better than this: (Thanks to Key for allowing me to quote her)

Still with the Seven Minute Madness?
It's reaching, desperate, and already getting to be an aged whine. Let it go.

So Bush is under attack for waiting seven minutes to respond to the 9-11 attacks. (He actually took a minute to finish up with the kids...that bastard!)

A few nights ago on Hannity and Colmes I learned Kerry admitted that he sat stunned for forty minutes following news of the attacks and wasn't able to think.

Hmmm...

I don't know, tough call!

Look, maybe if President Bush had it to do over, he'd hop up. Maybe not. Does it matter?

I just have this to say:

If I have to choke down a mouthful of more government because too many of my fellow Americans bought into the seven minute, WMD, unheard of conspiracies media smokescreen, I'm gonna be REALLY FRIGGIN IRRITATED with some of my fellow Americans.

That is all.

There is a woman who works where I do whose daughter is going on Jerry Springer to find out who fathered her children. She's proud of her.

There is an 18 year old who shot himself in the hand with a pellet gun over the weekend.

One of our employees was escorted out of the building today after being terminated.

And... there was this conversation over the PA System:


Female Employee: "(Asst. Manager) Dial 1213"
Asst Manager: "Call 1201"

A few seconds later:
Female Employee: "Please Repeat Last Call"
Asst. Manager: "Please Repeat Last Call"

2nd Female employee: "Please Repeat Last Call"

3rd Female employee: " (So and So) if you are in the store, call 1200"

Asst. Manager: "Please Repeat Last Call"

I think the assistant manager was just being a dickhead.

Darkness

As I was eating dinner last night, I was watching an old tape called the "Missiles of October" and thinking about going online.
As I finished, the lights went out. The sky was dark but I had heard no thunder.
It just made it that much darker.
I guess about 90% of the county was without power.
It stayed that way until almost 9 PM. By that time it was so damn dark in the house I couldn't see my hand in my face. I retreated into my bedroom and went to bed somewhat early.

Drunk Goes Flying

From the Darwin Awards comes this gem from Kotzebue, Alaska.

About 2 years ago I was working for the Kotzebue Police department in Kotzebue Alaska, which is about 30 miles north of the arctic circle. In Kotzebue the only access to Anchorage and the outside world is the Alaska Airlines 737 service. The main runway ends at the shore line to the Chuckchi sea, but there is a road running between the end of the runway and the beach. When a plane is landing or taking off there are large gates with lights like a railroad crossing that lower and keep pedestrians and vehicles out of the way. Also a DOT worker stations themselves in a truck at one end of the road to watch for violators and advise the jet to stop or abort the landing or take off.

One after noon I received a dispatch to respond for an intoxicated male on the roadway while the jet was trying to take off. The jet had taxied to the end of the runway near the road and turned around to take off. I arrived a found the jet gone and a very wet drunk staggering out of the water. The drunk could not tell me what had happened and the DOT worker was laughing to hard and was in tears at the time. So after taking the drunk 20 year old male home and providing him with a citation for Minor Consuming Alcohol I returned to find out what had happened.

Apparently our hero had been staggering down the road headed home after getting smashed in a local area known as South Tent City while the jet was taxiing. Being in a less then alert state he walked past the flashing lights and gates and DOT could not get to him to move him because of the back blast from the jet. The jet turned around and was getting ready to leave when it was advised of the drunk staggering behind the engines. The pilot waited for about 10 minutes and after not hearing another word from the DOT worker assumed the drunk was gone and hit the throttles to take off. Well our drunk was not out of the way yet and had apparently paused for a breather behind the jet while walking to enjoy those nice exhaust fumes. He was picked up by the engine back blast and cleared 30 feet of beach and about 50 feet of water before coming in for splash down. Luckily for him the water temperature is about a constant 38 degrees in the arctic and about 20 feet deep where he landed it apparently brought him around enough to swim to shore.

Hurricanes

To my Florida readers- I hope all goes well for you with the Hurricanes headed your way. I have never been in one, but know a few who have.
Although I like weather and storms, these types I wouldn't want to mess with.

By the way- what did the hurricane say to the coconut tree?

"Hang on to your nuts! This won't be an ordinary blow job!"

Flashes on the Horizon

Good thing I knew that the Perseid Meteor Shower was happening. I have seen streaks of light and what appear to be explosions on the horizon. The dogs are howling all over town.
I'm anticipating some dummy to call the news services to ask if we are under attack by terrorists.

83 days

There are 83 more days until the election. I actually look forward to the day after, when there are NO MORE POLITICAL COMMERCIALS.
Nevada has it's primary on September 7th- which seems goofy to me. The way the candidates are canvassing the state's rural areas makes me think they know it will be close. I heard VP Cheney will be in Elko this week. I think Elko has had only one semi-presidential visit before, by Herbert Hoover.
(Or- as I like to say- Hoobert Heever)

So Many Obituaries

Being in a small town of about 10,000, and doing the work I do, you tend to know a lot of people. I have known literally a dozen or so who have passed on this year alone. Some have been older, and that can be expected I guess, but it still sucks.
It started when I lost my maternal grandmother on December. 31, 2003.

She was 83 and had Alzheimer's Disease. Frankly, I felt a sense of relief for her because it's an awful disease. My daughter and I still celebrated New Year's because she would have wanted that.
This subject is on my mind because I saw two familiar names on the obituaries today, one was 58 and the other was 63. That makes 4 for August so far.
I just hope I don't wake up one morning and find my name there. :)

....it was my ass dragging on the ground.

Arnold and Hillary

This supposedly happened, but whether or not it did, it is funny.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Hillary Clinton are at a party....

....supposedly Hillary goes up to Arnold ( who was drinking something ) and tells him "If you were my husband, I would poison that drink." Supposedly he responded by saying "If you were my wife, I would drink it."

Accusing others of what they do themselves

Ahh- these Democrats are rats that do not like the taste of their own cheese.
Does anybody remember....

....during the final month of the Clinton Administration when the economy started tanking? What did these buttwarts say?

They blamed it on Bush- saying he was "talking down" the economy- and he had not even been inaugurated yet.

That's like blaming the doctor you've never seen before of making you sick.

Fast forward to 2004- some mild growth in the economy and the presidential wanna be is doing what?
"Talking down" the economy and saying "that's not good enough."

Awww shaddappp!

Another thing- JFK2 is saying he would have done things different on 911.
Instead of telling us what you would have done, why don't you tell us where you were and what you did on September 11, 2001?

Alabama Executes 74 Year Old

The oldest man since 1941 was executed in Alabama for a 1977 murder. They tried the usual bullshit of "this is cruel and unusual" punishment.
Well excuse me, but....

....doesn't anybody give a flying fuck about the 62 year old woman he murdered in Tuscaloosa 27 years ago?
Doesn't anybody give a fuck about the other person he murdered in 1957?

This sonofabitch had barely been released from prison when he killed this woman.
This asshole has been on the taxpayer's dole called "prison" almost constantly for 47 years!

The needle was too good for this bastard. They should have sent him to one of the 4 states that still hang people ( Washington, Montana, New Hampshire and Delaware) or even to the one state that has the firing squad (Utah).

Hell- the should have had him stand on a street corner in Tuscaloosa carrying a sign that says "murderer" and see how long he would have lasted.

1952-2004

I have seen alot of people die young in the 8 months, but it's still a shock when it happens.


This lady I knew had a rare form of cancer- usually exclusive to black men, and she was a white woman.
She was told she had 6 months to live- back in 1998.

Overnight she went from a hefty woman to skin and bones. She tried to say it was a purposeful weight loss, but my dad, who spent 23 years working in various Air Force hospitals knew better.

I thought she was on a rebound, but in the past few weeks she deteriorated rapidly.

Cancer is such a bitch.

Nineteen Years Ago Today

The date was August. 2, 1985....

I was living in Dallas,Texas. The day was a typical Texas summer day, hot and humid.
During the previous weeks I had experienced some trouble walking, so I had a late afternoon appointment with an orthopedic surgeon at a hospital near the DFW airport.
During the appointment I learned that I may need spinal surgery due to a herniated disk, but more tests were necessary. This was unusual for this 20 year old (at the time) and I was somewhat startled by it.
I left the hospital, somewhat in a daze.
It was about 4:45 PM- as I leave the hospital it was like being hit by a tidal wave of humidity and heat.
Cottonball type clouds pock mark the sky above, usually the sign of a chance of thunderstorms- just typical Texas weather.
Planes fly in the distance to land at DFW.

About 6 PM the sun disappears as it begins to set lower in the orange hazy western sky.
It is blocked out by a monumental thunderhead that is sitting above the airport. The rain underneath is so thick it looks solid black from where I was at- in the Garland area of Dallas.
The storm seems to die as quickly as it formed.

I never could have realized the horror of what I was witnessing.
About 11 PM I turn on the radio on to Dallas station KRLD and hear the words "the Dallas County Medical Examiner confirms 123 dead in the crash of Delta Airlines Flight 191 at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport."

I was speechless- I was so damn close to it not even 90 minutes before it happened. I am so glad I did not witness it. The "solid black" I referred to was actually the smoke.
The thunderstorm brought the plane down and brought attention to "wind shears."
Ultimately, the death toll rose to 137, and the DFW area came together in a miraculous way, lines of people donating blood, etc.

There were some bastards who tried to take advantage of it though. As it came down the L-1011 skidded across a freeway and broke apart. Some morbid sons of bitches nearby looted the dead bodies of passengers who were dumped out of the plane as it broke apart.

More sensible people near by executed some Texas Justice on these turdballs and attacked them and made citizen's arrests.

Although that was a dark day in the city of Dallas, the good in people made it easier to deal with.

Two weeks later, when I left Dallas to come home, I flew over the remaining wreckage and saw the scars left in the ground.

As my plane leveled off, I reached into the pocket in front of me and pulled out a news magazine to read.
On the cover it said "Death In Dallas."
*Rolls Eyes*

Bassackwards, wish I was lysdexic

I became so incredibly tired last night- went to bed at 7:30, and woke up at 1:00. My system is so screwed up right now I can't tell my butt from my elbow.

Some people should just keep quiet

I dated a lady for awhile, and we still seemed to be good friends. She recently made the comment "I finally found a real man" and then realized she insulted me.
If I said "I found a real woman" around her she would have had a seizure.
I wonder how her shoe tastes. She probably feels like a heel.

August Already?

I can't believe that it's August already.
The last few weeks I keep waking up at 3 or 4 AM, and can't get back to sleep. Now it is almost 7 AM and I am ready to go back to bed >:(
