So apt

How very appropriate for the symbol of the Democratic party to be an ass.

“In this case a lot of people in this country, it’s my belief, don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. And that’s a basic philosophical clash,” Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran said.

Then:

  1. How was Obama elected?
  2. How were so many Democrats elected alongside Obama?
  3. Does the unpopularity of Bush near the end of his term then imply that a lot of people wanted an inclusive liberal black man to govern them?

Obama could be any color of the rainbow and still scare me with his policies.

Your logic is faulty, Moran.

Reach out?  Include?  The last two years had precious little reaching out.  Lots of bowing, and I suppose reaching out to madmen and dictators does count, but not to anyone here in the USA who didn’t already agree with him.

Moran.  Moron.  Coincidence?

Maybe he was smoking some “Whoonga“…

Users crush the anti-retroviral medications and smoke them with a mixture of rat poison, detergent and marijuana to get high. The powder is said to be so addictive that users are hooked within days.

Sounds bizarre enough to me to group it with the “Jenkem” urban legend, though.

Update: Go Taco Bell!

A day or so ago I had fun making a Taco Bell graphic – mocking the ridiculousness of the entire situation.  And I also stated that I wish Taco Bell would win lawsuit.

Still do.  If I cheerlead enough do you think I could get a free six-pack of tacos to go?

Check back in this space [right here] tonight when I tell my very own Taco Bell story.

Now, Taco Bell paid for a full-page ad, which makes me pretty sure they’re not going to mind any extra free coverage, so here’s the advert again.  (If they ask, I’ll take it down but I’d be shocked if they did.)

Go, Taco Bell, fight the food nazis, win, and take a pound of flesh when you counter-sue!  Just don’t ruin the flavor of the tacos by using that pound of flesh, thank you.

I think they’re about to show the fruit-bats where the beef is.

Update: Huh.  Hit counter… 199,425 hits.

Who knew there were so many cases of bored people?

Update #2: Oh f*** me in both ears.

D&D in Prisons Could Lead to Gang Activity.  Didn’t we already live through this happy bullsh** with Tom Hank’s stoopid-beyond-belief D&D version of  “Reefer Madness”?

I say that as one whose mother tossed all his D&D books in a dumpster somewhere while he was at school.

Update #3: Oh please.  She was not jailed for sending her kids to a better school.  She was jailed for breaking the law by lying on her paperwork.  The mechanics were different but it’s not much different than holding up stores to pay for your kid’s school.  It’s taking money that isn’t yours.

****

I freely admit:  I love Taco Bell.

An engineer I worked with for a year said something about it that I’ll never forget.

Why Taco Bell?  Because it’s cheaper than food.

That was a pretty profound statement but I’d still eat the stuff every day if I could.

I’ve found the latest lawsuit to be both funny and puzzling.  Funny because, well, you get it.

Puzzling, because it still tastes pretty good.

Me? I'm rooting for Taco Bell.

I am loving PhotoShop.  I’ve always been bullish on open-source and freeware but I’m a convert.  There’s a good reason why it’s as popular as it is.  Been saving for it forever and finally was able to justify buying the package.

A Rush of Hormones…

… that could rival that of a pregnant woman’s…

… happens when I think of…

… the next installment of Deus Ex…

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

The first game ROCKED, way back in 2000.

The second game SUCKED, since the beginning of time to the end, alpha and omega.

This one makes me as gooey inside as Duke Nukem.  Speaking of…

Let’s look at that, shall we?  A h/t to Armed Geek over at Hookers and Booze.  I doubted him, and I’m playing it reserved, against any crushing of my hope and spirit once again – I’ve pined for the new Duke Nukem, ever since the first one.  But dammit, I’m going to go out on a limb here.   I sure hope this isn’t a horrible terrible tease of a joke.  I’ve been here before, and so have you if you’ve waited for another installment.  Twelve LONG YEARS.

****

Update:  If I didn’t already say it, “Office Assassin” will no longer be referred to by that name.  She is now “Savior of Kittens“.

Woke up feeling pretty not-right this morning.   Day two or three of this, and I think I must’ve pinched something in the neck.  So I figured I’d go back to sleep to see if that might help relax things.  The plan was to do that and then do my work from home today.

I only just now got up.  I had finally gotten back to sleep but it was weird dreams.

I dreamt Peter Sellers and I were holed up in dilapidated motel trying to hide from post-apocalyptic gangs and militias, when suddenly Chuck E. Cheese shows up outside.  Sellers went running out there and was screaming that he wanted a picture with Chuck E. Cheese.  So I ran out there, was getting situated while scanning the area for raiders and militias, and then it got amazingly weird.   I raised my Nikon to take the shot… but the weird part is that I have a Canon.

Dreams are strange.  What in hell would make a brain substitute a different make of camera?

Islamists?  Really?  My first thought was “those damn Swedes are up to no good again!”

Suici… Homicide Bomber Hits Biggest Russian Airport.

Thing about wacked-out crazies is they leave behind so much more collateral damage than just the victims.  The families and friends are walking wounded, too.

If he had 15lbs of TNT, lets just be thankful he didn’t have 15lbs of RDX or PETN… or 30lbs of the stuff.  I suppose this is the whole point, but these terrorists are scary.

I wish we’d start getting more serious about stopping the terrorists rather than stopping little old ladies and groping them.  (Thanks again, TSA for not really making a difference!)

h/t to mrmacs for this link to an FEL the Navy is working on.  Say whatever you will about the Navy (I have many great things to say about them, myself) but they sure do have some of the best funding around for new technology.

Now… why am I having such a hard time believing this?

Pot meets pop: Local entrepreneur plans to market line of smartly branded medical-marijuana soft drink

“I don’t do drugs,” said the Soquel-based commercial artist. “Never have. I never drank, never smoked. I’m a clean-living guy. I’ve had two beers in my whole life, and I remember them both too. No marijuana, I’ve never smoked a cigarette. I take an aspirin when I get a headache. That’s it.”

Hmmm.  Perhaps it really is true that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.  Well, you go ahead and judge.

Steampunk Sarah Palin.

I did all right with that concept until they mentioned pages and pages of pin-ups of Sarah Palin, at which point I got queasy and had to run for the Pepto-Bismol ™.

I like Sarah Palin, but I don’t want her for POTUS, and my brain-jury is still out to lunch on whether I like the idea of her in Steampunk.

h/t to The Dude for pointing this one out.

… by the way, eggnog and Red Bull mixed together tastes like ass.  Two things I love, blending together to make something that I had to strain to finish.  (I’m NOT wasting Red Bull, dammit)

No, I did not successfully quit R/B yet.

Yet.

Where did the 15 million jobs go in the last ten years?

That’s really a question?  Experts don’t know why?  How about… shipping all the jobs overseas?  Morons.

Six Power Nuclear Talks End – When Will the West Wake Up?

I know!  Let’s look at who the players on the UN Security Council are.  The permanent council members are:  China, Russia, France, UK, and the United States.

Who are the biggest economies trading with Iran?  China, Russia, and France, all of whom only pretend to get along with the US while secretly wishing we’d fail miserably so they could make their ascension.

Short answer (two of them):  First answer:  THE WEST?  You gotta be kidding.  China and Russia are not “The West”.  Russia has taken themselves out of that category time and time again and China was never in that category. Morons.   Second Answer:  How about never?  Is never good for you?  Because that’s when it’s going to happen.

Hawaii won’t release Obama’s birth records now?  What.  A. Shocker.

You know what?  It’s never going to be found or released, and even if it was, there’s not a chance in hell it would be recognized, and even if that happened there’s not a chance that Obama’s position would be threatened, and even if THAT happened, there’d be a civil war.  Come on folks.  Recognize that he’s going to be here for another two years regardless and his re-election chances are pretty slim, so let it go.  Just let it go.

I happen to believe that if he were legit, he would have surrendered it by now, but… just let it go.

Social Networking is Evil, say researchers.

First they said tv was evil.  Then they said video games were evil.  Now they say social networking is evil.  Next they’ll say human sacrifice and cannibalism is evil.   Wait, I guess those are evil.  I think I’ve become desensitized to that after watching the Democrats so long.
