Update #3:  Last update for today…

Ohio Man Charged With DUI After Crashing Motorized Bar Stool


Update #2:  Needs no words.


Update #1:

District 203 decides against hosting Bill Ayers at Naperville North

Second source here.

The high school educators decided that it might be nice to have a terrorist come talk to their kids and spew his anti-US sentiments around.  The idea wasn’t well received.

Superintendent Alan Leis said Monday morning he had received more than 100 e-mails and numerous phone calls about Ayers’ scheduled appearance and decided “it just wasn’t appropriate. Any (educational) value here is completely lost.”

“It is truly amazing the level of anger and emotion around this issue,” he said.

My responses:

  1. There was no educational value to begin with
  2. If you are surprised by the level of anger and emotion you need to be removed from your job immediately
  3. There is a tiny bit of hope in that enough people spoke up and said “This is wrong, dammit.”

Leis is, by all appearances, a genuine idiot.

“I only focused on how fascinating it would be for students to talk to someone who had a role in the presidential campaign,” he said.

Since then, though, he said he has done more research into Ayers’ background and “it’s very hard to figure out who this guy is,” he said.

Only focusing on what Ayer’s role in the presidential campaign is myopic at best.  Sadly there wasn’t ENOUGH focus on Ayer’s connection to Obama during the campaign.  THE MAN IS A TERRORIST.

I take back part of #2 above… Leis needs to be removed immediately.  If he cannot figure Ayers out based on history and the man’s own declarations, he’s not qualified to be within 500 feet of a school unless it’s remedial courses for himself.

Oooh, a fifth columnist inside the school (a teacher) invited Ayers  – emphasis mine:

Ayers was invited to speak by Naperville North history teacher Kermit Eby, a former student of Ayers’.

… [stuff]…

Eby also has come under fire for issuing the invitation and district officials came to his defense in their e-mail.

“What was most unfortunate was that a few directed their anger toward an outstanding high school and at a well-regarded, award-winning teacher who encourages students to think for themselves,” the e-mail said.

I’m fairly sure that while students are “encouraged to think for themselves” they’d meet the same kind of  “debate” seen on college campuses across the nation during indoctrination week.

Our government is going to launch a website:

The feds will warn of depression, suicidal thinking and other serious mental illnesses. It will raise warning flags for: Persistent sadness/crying; Excessive anxiety; Lack of sleep/constant fatigue; Excessive irritability/anger.

Wow.  This is like, dude, just what I like, you know… needed?

You see, I was getting my nails done down at Geoff’s Salon… you know Geoff… I love him because he knows how a man’s hands need different kinds of care… anyway, I heard about this gal who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this guy who knew this gal whose pet’s veterinarian’s ex-wife’s grocer knew this guy that was really bummed about the recession.

And I got to thinking about his sadness… and I burst into tears myself <sob>!  I mean, this is terrible.

I’d normally crack a joke that mocked effeminate stereotype men of a different persuasion, but that’s an insult to them.  We’re talking here about bona-fide pussies.  A bunch of frakking wusses.

I don’t mean about being sad, depressed, anxious, sleep issues, irritability, etc.  That’s normal human being stuff.  But to be such a simp that you need the gov’t to tell you about that?  Gimme a break.

Well, on the off chance you are a simp, go here.

But just understand… men and women involved with WWII, lived through the Great Depression, the Civil War, the Spanish Flu… they all think you’re pussies if you need the gov’t to tell you what to think about how you feel.  They were made of sterner stuff.

Or, if you are one of the ones that voted Obama and his ilk in… perhaps that is what you need after all.


An example of a loser.  And he’s a cop.

NFL Player Detained While Rushing to Dying Mother-in-Law Accepts Officer’s Apology

If someone says something like this, escort them to the hospital and if they’re lying, cuff ’em.  But no, it had to be taken to another level:

The officer pulled out his gun and threatened Moats with jail as the player pleaded to be allowed to go inside the hospital. Moats’ mother-in-law died before he got there while Powell write Moats a ticket and lectured him.

Nice, huh?

I was super late for my wedding because the detailers had a rectal-cranial inversion thing going on.  I laid a patch of rubber going out of that parking lot, screamed through a yellow left turn… and got pulled over.

Once the cop heard me say “I’m late for my wedding, dude” and saw the tux on the seat, he said “Just slow it down, get outta here.”

No reason why a little common sense can’t be exercised by the police.


Good for her…

Angie Harmon: I’m Not Racist Because I Disagree With Obama

“Here’s my problem with this, I’m just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama it’s not because I’m a racist, it’s because I don’t like what he’s doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you’re called a racist…”   – Angie Harmon on her frustration with labelling

… she’ll still be crucified for speaking her mind – by Hollywood.
